I have lived in the Falls since 1968. My great-great grandfather was one of the village founders. I have served the community in multiple ways: Firefighter, various boards and commissions and for many years was president of the Falls Cable Access Corp. Currently I own, and am active in, a restaurant equipment manufacturing company.

Today Don Imus returned to the airwaves around the country on several venues. No matter how you might feel about his on-air remarks a few months ago, this maverick of the airways has a way of interviewing political candidates and pundits that is not regulated by a "party line" or sponsor/network influences.
If you really want to know about a national candidate and his/her feelings, you might give his program a chance. He is irreverent, and doesn't hold back his feelings about controversial issues.
His program is on from 6 to 9 a.m. in this area. You will find him with a live stream at wabc.com on the internet, or the RFD-TV channel on selected local cable and satellite channels. Imus is not for everyone. My Aunt Maude would probably be spinning in her grave if she ever heard that I was writing this.
But, she can't. So, fair warning - perhaps you might enjoy his show.
