Somber moment in the village

Shocking and sad. How else do you describe what happened on Monday afternoon on a normally quiet Liberty Street?

Residents who were out in the aftermath described a simpler time — and a family atmosphere in the neighborhood when everyone seemed to look out for everyone else. Those were much more innocent days.

But Fredonia is not alone. Across our nation — in somewhat safe communities — things go wrong. Our hearts and prayers go out to our first responders, our police force and those close to the situation.

This will hurt for a while.
