Cashless Bail and Gun Crimes+

In the recent political brouhaha, cashless bail and gun crimes became a sounding board for commercials and brochure points. Now, let’s go for reality.

Trump is toast, Biden not far from finished

Ahh, Wednesday morning showed that the Trump era of lies, denial, endorsements, rhetoric is finally waning. His 2022 pre-election selections only fared “ok”, with key Republican losses in the “Red Wave” becoming only a ripple in the overall pond of politics. Seems all those Trump waving flags and Red Hat lovers failed to muster enough […]

Democracy...who gives a shit?

There have always been political divisions. There have always been rumors, innuendos and out right lies that people are willing to accept.

Sodus Town Board takes the low road

They did it under the auspices of “circulation and cost of legal notices”.   Of course, that was  just a cover for the real reason. At their last meeting, the Sodus Town Board voted to change their town legal newspaper designation from the Times of Wayne County to the Lakeshore News. The Times is by […]

ENERGY: Catch 22

Catch 22,  was a novel, eventually made into a movie, by American author Joseph Heller. The name refers to a circumstance or rule that denies a solution. Okay, that brings us to the word Energy.

Famous Quotes

Following last week’s editorial (Meaning - my Opinion), I expected backlash.  Please read carefully: I do not like writing about Trump and his many faults and follies. I would much rather write about...Just about anything else. Yes, this is a long column, perhaps too long for regular readers.  The problem is that I will keep […]

How Republican Party is becoming the Nazi Party

Yes, I did give a lot of thought to this particular column. Yes, I know I will hear repercussions. Yes, I know my wife is not only a Town Republican Chairperson, but also on the County Republican Committee. All that being said, I guess somebody had to finally say it. I will now compare the […]

Trust me, you do not want to be me

Anyone who is a regular reader knows I am not at the top of the health meter. So far I have survived some 43 operations affecting just about every part of my body. Some of the operations were easy peasy, some had me laid up for months. I even boast two different operations by two […]
