Niagara Gazette —

Since the Sept. 11 attacks, the date has become known as a National Day of Service and Remembrance after Congress officially recognized it in 2009. Ceretto said the national suffering isn't gone but people working to help protect the freedoms and liberties at home are helping citizens remember the country is still the United States of America.

"The attack on our nation that day will remain etched on our minds forever," he said. "As we pay tribute on this National Day of Service and Remembrance, let us stand tall as we honor the heroism of 9/11 and never loose sight that we are the United States of America. We have exceptional people in our fire companies across this great nation, we have great police officers in this great nation and we have great people that protect our lives every day in our nation."

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
