Phil, Fredonia would do very well to give a wide berth to Dunkirk. With the power plant on the way out, Dunkirk is in for a heap o' trouble. Not one that Fredonia can remotely help bail out.

"You can't compare Bemus Point with the Dunkirk/Fredonia area". You are right! Dunkirk has about a mile of beaches and Bemus has about 25 feet. Dunkirk/Fredonia has colleges, a tax base, proximity to rail and interstate highways, good employers and an endless supply of fresh water. Dunkirk/Fredonia has more assets than Bemus ever dreeamed of. The only thing missing in our area is leadership and fair taxes.

You cannot compare Bemus point and the Dunkirk/Fredonia area. It's like comparing Ellicottville to Cattaraugus. In other words, there is no comparison.

(con't) The result for Bemus Point is obvious. It's hard to find a parking place at Bemus in the summer months and the value of their real estate has gone through the roof. All it takes is leadership and imagination.

OK Mayor - now let's talk about a merger! Just imagine, a single community with a major college, a natural harbor, endless supply of fresh water, steel along wit other industry, a single police, fire and public works department, add to this a relatively stable tax base and you have the ingredients for a growth environment. JUDEYE - I agree that we need promotion. Bemus Point is a good example. Decades ago Bemus leaders came up with a slogan, "GET TO THE POINT - BEMUS POINT".

Would it have killed you to acknowledge council members, and mayor(s), both present and past? Since many, if not most, of the things you stated started under Mayor Frye, or before, it would have been less partisan than trying to give all credit to the current administration.

What Truthteller said. I don't know what Keefe is on, but it must be strong.

If Dunkirk is his idea of a clear vision Fredonia is in big trouble.

Did he send flowers too. Doesn't take much to impress some people.

Yes those events were nice. Peel that back and you find a declining population base as noted in school population and the lack of jobs being created. Come back in Feb. Also note the MT space on Central Avenue between 4th and 3rd streets. Dunkirk will (or maybe there already) like Bemus Point.

My brother in law was in with his family from Alaska. He grew up at the Point in Dunkirk and is thinking of coming back to this area for retirement.

They were so impressed with the Boardwalk and the new bike trails. We have much to be proud of. Should we not be using some of this to market the city better?

Are there brochures about the events and the interests that surround the city?

We need to better promote our area.

We live in a type of paradise that too many of us just take for granted.
