OFF THE WALL: One of the most ridiculous recorded messages for a candidate in Tuesday’s election was from Nik Wallenda, asking voters to support Paul Wojtasek of North Tonawanda in the race for Supreme Court Justice. It’s an insult to voters to think that a high-wire performer who lives in Florida knows anything about candidates or the issues in Western New York. Many local residents couldn’t believe that robo call they received.
Wallenda should be devoting more time to finding private investors to support his “permanent attraction” or what he has in mind to lure more tourism to the Cataract City. Whatever he ultimately decides, those costs should not be put on the backs of local taxpayers. How can that be defined as economic development?
A REMINDER: The Home Energy Assistance Program season (2013-14) will begin Nov. 18 with improvements in the application process. A spokesman said that applications have been forwarded to qualified individuals who were HEAP recipients in 2012 and meet the requirements. Seniors may find assistance with their applications at the Sale Association Senior Center, North Tonawanda, and at the Duke Senior Center, Hyde Park Boulevard, in Niagara Falls. For information regarding HEAP, call 278-8400 or visit niagaracounty.com/social services/Home.aspx.
