The Batavian, and until its demise The Wyoming County Free Press, has been my go to for what is happening where I live and work. The Daily News and Country Courier are good sources as well.

If you are reading this comment you really should think about how beneficial The Batavian is to your understanding of your community. What's happening in Buffalo and Rochester are incidental to what's happening here, where you actually live.

Thanks, Bernie, Kyle.

David, check to make sure you are allowing this site to run JavaScript. That would be the only issue I can imagine.

I'm a bit confused by the down votes for Bernie's and my posts. If someone is reading this website and going to the trouble of reading the comments thereon, how is it that they are registering and voting down comments without having the courage to express a contrary view of the issue?

Do they not like local news? Are they opposed to hearing the "little people" express their opinions? I get to hear the opinions of the "elites" all the time. There is no shortage of that kind of "news".

Yes Kyle. That's exactly what it is. In my case, it's a a family grudge that will soon come to end. He won't speak up. Mommy won't allow it.
