Willie,
It is reported that planners expect 30,000 people at SenecaFest this weekend. I count SIX (6) porta-potties at Norton Park on Thursday. That’s one for every 5,000 persons expected to attend. Either they are really …

Willie,
As far as I’m concerned, all of your “conservative” candidates would more accurately be described as “regressive” candidates. The public would be better served if this paper were to focus on “progressive” candidates, such as …

I don’t know who the owners are, but the building needs to be torn down and something nice put there.

Willie,
This is in response to the comment about the slide at Chau Ram Park. My family went there a couple of weeks ago where my five-year-old wanted to slide. I admit it is pretty high, …
