We can all help our locally owned businesses during this time and help them to be in a better position to reopen in the future. For hair salons and barber shops which are closed, purchase gift certificates from your stylist for the amount you would normally pay for their service. This may help them pay some of their business costs now. Order take-out from your favorite local restaurants an…

You are all truly hero's! With all the chaos and uncertainty in the world concerning the corona virus, each and everyone of you are on the front battle lines. You are all truly dedicated people, who, at the risk of your own lives, unselfishly forge forward to help others in the face of adversity. That certainly takes a special person.

For those who are just ugly from the inside out, perhaps they should spend a little time in a hospital and see what our wonderful physicians and nurses are going through. Maybe then they would be able to be nice to others around them. Maybe not.....Stop being so abrasive and obnoxious. You end up only hurting yourself and pushing away others around you. A big shout out to all of the dedica…

I would like to express our appreciation for Anthony at Top's pharmacy in Hamlin and give a shout out to all of those who have to continue to work so that others can benefit. Everyone is being profoundly affected due to the pandemic. I'm sure that being a pharmacist is a job that can be overwhelming at this time. Yet, when I was at the pharmacy on Thursday to pick up prescriptions for my f…

While checking out at Wegman's last Sunday morning, I discovered I had forgotten my wallet. Facing embarrassment, I asked the girl at the checkout if I could call my wife hoping she could rescue me by phone. While on the phone, the girl proceeded to check out my purchases. I asked her to stop, but she told me that the kind man behind me was paying for my goods. I insisted on repaying him, …

Regarding the person who complained that their groceries were not packed properly: I had the same problem, plus the bags were packed too heavy. I solved both problems. I fold my reusable bags and place them in one bag. When I get to the checkout, I place one folded bag on the conveyer and pl…

Media needs to report positive news, not panic and gloom and doom 24/7. It scares our children. Yes, we know about the virus going around, so why always post numbers of more and more cases? Why not report news of those who have recovered and survived? Hopefully, seclusion won't last beyond t…

In a time where so many are coming together and helping, being true hero's, it is sad how some individuals can still be so ugly. Yes, that's a strong word, but sadly true. Some people wouldn't say hi or wave if their lives depended on it. They go out of their way to be the same disgruntled p…
