DPW does great job with leaves


Tony Gugino and his crew picked up our leaves on Wednesday, Nov. 27 and they did a great job.

We want to thank him and his crew for a nice job done. Mr. Gugino is a terrific supervisor for the village of Fredonia. He’s smart and he knows the business.

We were lucky to get Tony. Nice job Tony!



Veterans need more respect


I’m a law-abiding citizen of Dunkirk. I’m 68 years old, a veteran and have been disabled for more than 10 years.

After reading the article in the OBSERVER after Veterans Day honoring our military personnel, I decided we have reached a new low. I took it as a slap in the face for me and every other veteran in this community. I also found it to be a double slap for every parent, spouse, child, other relative, friend and classmate who will always suffer pain for a loved one who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Those of us who came home gave a minimum of the best years of our lives for a country we believed in. Countless others came home crippled, minus limbs, and suffering many different illnesses.

I wish to thank Applebee’s, Lowe’s, Home Depot and so may other great companies who honor our vets 365 days a year. Dunkirk only seems to honor them 365 minutes a year.

You can’t make America great when you refuse to make it respectable!
