People’s column

Professor’s column was ‘nonsense’ Editor, OBSERVER: I’ve seen Stephen Kershnar’s photo appear on the Editorial page of the OBSERVER in the past. However, until Nov. 18, I’ve never read one of his “commentaries.” I’m being told that this promotion of conspiracy theories ...

Teachers want students in class

Editor, OBSERVER: As Thanksgiving approaches Fredonia Central School is looking forward to returning students grades six to 12 back to school in a hybrid situation. The administration and staff have worked very hard to make this possible in the safest possible manner. We truly want our kids ...

Quick city work applauded

Editor, OBSERVER: We would like to thank Mike Porpiglia and his department for their quick response to the aftermath of the Sunday windstorm. They went above and beyond in clearing the massive debris left behind at our house. We can’t thank them enough for their excellent hard work which ...

Editor, OBSERVER: A great big thank you to all those that kept our towns and our normalcy running through the pandemic. We at Trinity UCC and our local communities are grateful for all the work out in front and behind the scenes, we saw you all and are eternally grateful for your ...

Officials slow to get info out

Editor, OBSERVER Officials seem to think an uninformed community is a happy community. Not so! Recently, and in the past, there have been disturbing and frightening incidents which have occurred. When a drive-by shooting is reported and schools are placed in lockdown, I want to know that ...

People’s column

Seeking unity in America Editor, OBSERVER: How can we help re-unite America? By petitioning for our money’s worth, from every Party Politician, (we pay their salaries) to make decisions in our best interest, even though that may require crossing the aisle when something is good for ...

Pro-life words need action

Editor, OBSERVER: I’d like to respond to a recent letter that noted, “vote your conscience and faith” (Oct. 31). Professing to be pro-life is more then being against abortion; it is believing in the right to life “from womb to tomb.” Is it pro-life to allow a baby to be born, then ...

Party powers hurt limits

Editor, OBSERVER: We are in trouble as a nation regardless of who wins this election. For too long we’ve been saddled with red and blue politicians who resemble hogs with two snouts, enriching themselves at the public trough. We must start the process of installing term limits for every ...

People’s column

Motorists unsure at traffic circle Editor, OBSERVER: I think the roundabout in Fredonia may be a good idea in the long run, but people still don’t know how to properly use it. If going straight when your turn please leave room for those turning right at first entry so that person ...

People’s column

Are we really discontent with Congress? Editor, OBSERVER: If you are satisfied with the job Congress is doing, you should probably stop reading this. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results. Do you realize that, despite ...

Country needs dose of truth

Editor, OBSERVER: To any fair-minded person, it’s obvious how the media — a megaphone for the Democratic National Committe — distort, misinform, disinform and obscure the truth. Those easily manipulated believe without question as the radical Democrat/Socialist leadership sets the scene ...

Republicans nearly extinct

Editor, OBSERVER: There is more to the sixth anniversary of the passing — Oct. 18, 2014 — of Buffalo’s former Republican State Comptroller Edward V. Regan. He was also a member of the Buffalo Common Council and served as Erie County Executive in the 1970s. It was a time when Republicans ...

People’s column

Biden will help retirees Editor, OBSERVER: This is a message to senior voters. Election Day is almost here, and everyone needs to turn out to vote. That’s especially true for older New Yorkers. The candidates for president could not be any different and the retirement security for ...

People’s column

Proposals needed in COVID fight Editor, OBSERVER: More than 200,000 people in our country have died from COVID-19, and the financial consequences of the pandemic reach far beyond that. The emergency relief package “HEROES 2.0” was released by the House of Representatives on Sept. 29. ...

People’s column

Remembering a ‘tenacious leader’ Editor, OBSERVER: Sadly missed along life’s way, quietly remembered every day ... No longer in our life to share, but in our hearts, you’re always there. We, the Democratic Committee of the city of Dunkirk, wish to express our saddened hearts ...

People’s column

Nursing homes are doing their best Editor, OBSERVER My mom is a resident at the Chautauqua Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. Like many other residents’ families, I have not seen her since February. A recent protest at this facility doesn’t seem to be very constructive, as the ...

People’s column

Service after attacks took toll on many Editor, OBSERVER: As the 19th anniversary of the 9-11 terrorist attacks on America passes, it is with a somber heart I remember that day and the days and months following. As a member of the New York State Police, like so many of my brothers and ...

Water issue part of larger problem

Editor, OBSERVER: Is anyone asking this question: what happened to our water supply? Fredonia in the past enjoyed the best tasting water, year after year. With the absence of the Carriage House, the demand on the water has drastically decreased, so you can’t blame the warm summer. ...

Editor, OBSERVER: This is an open letter to the Portland Town Board. Please be aware of the gratitude you deserve for performing your office for the benefit of all our community. I have witnessed the hours and energy you give to be sure that Brocton and its surrounding area is well governed. ...

People’s column

County working hard regarding COVID-19 Editor, OBSERVER: A few weeks ago as the story about Fieldbrook Foods was breaking, a rather negative article appeared (Aug. 28) blasting the local health department and county government “handling” of the news. The story line was something to ...
