Buffalo Niagara Cricket Club More of Buffalo than Niagara

A mayor for all seasons except winter, fall and spring. And summer we're not too sure of.
In 1828, the British brought the game of cricket to the then third world India, at the time India didn't have running water. Now, in 2015 India is bringing the game of cricket to the third world city of Niagara Falls. Just 11 blocks away from the people on 72nd street and other nearby locations, where they don't have running water in the winter.

The Buffalo Niagara Cricket Club – for whom the taxpayers of Niagara Falls – under the auspices of Mayor Paul A. Dyster – have built a cricket field - is made up of a group of highly educated professionals.

None of them live in Niagara Falls.

This should be looked at two ways: One: Having built for them a cricket field, this will bring these highly educated and affluent men to Niagara Falls. It will also bring other educated men from other cities who play on other teams here.

These men can afford to buy goods and services which they may just do here in our city.

Two: The example of refinement and civility one expects from men of this cultured and educational level may have a beneficent impact on the great unwashed of this high-welfare city.

After all these men are of a minority (Asian) that never goes on welfare, works like the devil and makes work seem like a privilege. Maybe more than cricket will catch on.

On the other hand, that taxpayers of this impoverished city should be asked to pay for their cricket field is a little jarring considering how many much more essential things need to be done here – like roads and water and the repair of a sewage system that smells like fetid rotting fecal coliform which it probably is.

What’s the most troubling of all is the giddy Mayor Dyster who puts this as a priority on the one hand and on the other talks about the grave challenges in accomplishing the other important tasks.

Ask him about Penguin habitat and he has the money.

Ask him about fixing the water lines on 72nd St which he messed up with his road reconstruction and he will tell you we are waiting for the grants which may not be ready until next year.

As one regular correspondent to the Reporter wrote us last week, “Cricket or crooked?’ the answer is in the vowels of I-O-Who?  Is Dyster putting in a cricket field for the purposes of soliciting campaign dollars and votes from the South Asian and Mideast people of western New York? Citizens have been asking for basketball courts at Hyde Park for four years, however they're not even on the drawing board. But then again, neither was a cricket field until Dyster saw the difficulties that he would have in getting reelected.”
