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.
I haven't heard from him in quite a while, but I'm sure that he will contact me soon with some appropriate observations. It seems that this election season promises us another interesting village race and the circus that will certainly go with it.
If you are the real Tom Erne or even an enthusiastic imitator, leave a comment here and I will post all of your comments (edited for good taste, of course).
