As I have to re-live words President Trump said about women, and his so-called Pandemic failure. I’d like to point out some things Liberals need to remember. Biden opposed school busing for desegregation in the 1970s. He voted for a measure aimed at outlawing gay marriage in the 1990s. He wa…

I would like to comment on the letter, “Jacobs Spreading Fear About Green Light Law” (Daily News, Oct. 15). This is the latest of many letters that William Fine has written attacking Republicans. The last time Chris Collins ran for congress, in a letter to this publication, Mr. Fine said the…

Congressman Chris Jacobs is spreading lies and fear to gin up votes. Mr. Jacobs stated that he is worried that the Green Light Law might allow undocumented immigrants to vote, (Buffalo News 9/11/20). Driver’s licenses issued under the Green Light Law will have the words “NOT FOR FEDERAL PURP…

Let’s hope the Democrats at the federal and state levels will be held to the same laws that Chris Collins has been. But I doubt it, it seems like the Democrats’ narrative is “the laws apply to everyone else, but not us.” Otherwise a previous admin. would be arrested and charged already for t…

All you have to say is “broadband access” and the frustration is palpable. Our offices have been inundated with calls and messages from parents, business owners and community leaders who are tired of Albany’s promises to bring high-speed internet access to their communities.

The best and brightest leaders of organizations such as small businesses, non-profits and local governments are those who can navigate the complexities of the world by understanding and preparing for unknowns.

It is difficult to find an issue where our two candidates for Congress in NY-27 are not diametrically opposed. One of those is the extremely important issue of Social Security.

Kamala could have been more honest while quoting Abe. Sen. Kamala Harris skewed the truth in her debate-night claim that Abraham Lincoln delayed an election-year Supreme Court nomination because he cared about “doing the right thing.” While making the case that President Trump should put off…

WASHINGTON – Vice President Mike Pence’s job Wednesday night was to seem reasonable and reassuring after days of uncertainty stoked by President Donald Trump, who shook voters with his own combative debate performance last week and then alarmed the nation with his positive test for coronavirus.

If you thought the media was unbiased, just look at how the candidates were treated by Chris Wallace. President Trump was repeatedly called out and warned, while Mr. Biden was allowed to call him racist and a clown. He also told him to “shut up” on more than one occasion, but Mr. Wallace did…

Sadly, I must report that the “hoax” pandemic has had a severe symptomatic impact on the United States Senate; it has affected a group of eight Republican senators. Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham, Joni Ernst, Cory Gardner, Ted Cruz, John Cornyn, Chuck Grassley and Marco Rubio have come down…

Over the course of this year, just as with the 2016 election cycle, it seems that the national press, pollsters, and pundits take too much delight in classifying certain sectors of our population as “non-college educated” or “uneducated.”

Arlette Sherwood, born Oct. 1 1920, celebrates her 100th birthday today. She has five children, 15 grandchildren, 25 great grandchildren (with another on its way), and 10 great-great grandchildren. That’s 56 children in all. That’s blessed beyond measure! She has passed down a legacy of what…

Correcting New York’s massive budget shortfall is going to take a thoughtful, concerted effort that features a combination of eliminating wasteful spending, securing federal aid and an emphasis on common-sense prioritizing. The Assembly Minority Conference has always advocated for responsibl…

A couple of weeks ago, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation surprised deer hunters with something akin to an early Christmas present: Our game commission is floating the idea of extending the southern zone deer season through the Christmas break.

Last Sunday night someone chose to enter my property, go to a cottage in which good people were sleeping, and steal the flagpole and flag. It was a Black Lives Matter flag. These actions suggest a likely alignment with Trumpism’s white supremacist elements. As a resident of Warsaw for 33 yea…

Navigating the economic disruption that resulted from the coronavirus pandemic has been difficult for us at Batavia Downs Gaming. Our doors were closed to the public for the last six months, leaving over 400 Western New Yorkers without jobs during incredibly stressful times.

Most of my career has been spent in law enforcement, first as a New York State Trooper and later as Sheriff of Erie County. I have great respect for those who work hard to serve and protect our communities and can attest that the vast majority of officers are honorable people.

Earlier this week, New York families received some long-awaited good news with the announcement that restrictive nursing home visitation policies were finally being adjusted. Nursing home visits had been banned since March because of the pandemic. Since then, some residents’ friends and love…
