  • Petty’s music will live on for generations

    first_imgTom Petty meant so much to so many people, young and old, that it’s difficult to put into words. Genuine, honest, gifted and funny are just a few words that immediately come to mind.He genuinely loved all types of music, honestly loved his fans, was a gifted song writer and musician, and somehow maintained a great sense of humor throughout his long career.My favorite quote, to CNN is: “Music, as far as I have seen in the world so far, is the only real magic that I know. There is something really honest and clean and pure and it touches you in your heart.” Tom’s music touched our hearts for over 40 years and will continue to touch the hearts of generations to come.Virginia NewtonBurnt HillsMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?

  • Get Trump library in upstate New York

    first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion Many letters have been written against President Trump. The president keeps the media employed. Without the current president, the press wouldn’t have anything to write. Like it or not, New Yorkers have a stake in this presidency. President Trump is going to build his presidential library someplace. I have written to him and asked him to consider building it in upstate New York.This area already has the uniqueness of the Erie Canal system; the beautiful capitol building; the history of the Saratoga battlefield and a first-class race track. Add a presidential library to the list and upstate New York will truly be a “wow” destination for tourism. Plus the financial impact would be a bonanza.I visited the President Carter library. What a moving experience. It was like physically being present in the Oval Office.Let’s work together as Americans, through a letter-writing campaign, to bring the Trump presidential library to our state. Join me. Write to the president. Ask him to build his library in upstate New York. The address is: the White House, 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., Washington, D.C. 20500. Together we can do this.Mary B.

  • Use proper language on immigration

    first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionThank you for sharing Jon Lemelin’s March 3 letter, “Congress: Do more to protect Dreamers.” I share Jon’s conviction and was inspired last year after meeting with a group of New York Dreamers myself. They’re students, teachers, nurses, doctors and fill the ranks of countless other valued professions. Hundreds have enrolled to serve in our armed forces. They were brought to this country as kids and they grew up here, went to school here, made friends and forged their identities here. As with any other group facing policy challenges, how we talk about them matters.Dreamers are Americans in every way but their paperwork. If we want safer communities with stronger economies. We shouldn’t be spending our precious government resources ripping productive families apart. They aren’t “illegals,” as some have said. Actions are judged legal or illegal, not humans.This isn’t the only euphemism thrown around in the immigration debate. Local municipalities are dubbed “sanctuary cities” if they dare to refuse a zealous federal government demanding to deputize every municipal police officer and department to become de-facto deportation officers. Our police officers are on the job to protect and serve our communities, not to act as storm troopers rounding up peaceful, hard-working individuals. In fact, we have seen such a role strain police relations and make community policing less effective.Most recently I have heard the term “chain migration” used as a euphemism for family migration policies, sometimes referred to as “family reunification.” As Jon expresses in his letter, families are not chains. They are blessings and one of the best tools we have to ensure productive stable immigration system.If we want to solve the challenges in our immigration system, we need first to be clear, fair and honest in our language. As we search for bipartisan action, we should focus on real demonstrated threats, not ones that are trumped up and used to distract us. And in all such endeavors, we must set prejudice aside.Rep.

    first_imgKerr listens to her Milton constituentsAn important issue that the town of Milton needs to address is the noise from the planet junkyard. My neighbors and I hope something can be done about the noise there. Barbara Kerr has listened to us about our situation, and Barb really cares about our plight. I’m not sure if anything can be done to reduce the noise, but Barb has taken the time to listen to us and understand our problems. Please vote for Barbara Kerr on June 25.Kim WhiteBallston SpaWe must act now to stop bubonic plagueBubonic plague is an acute, severe infectious disease caused by the bacterium Yersinia pestis. The bacterium is found in fleas and wild rodents such as rats and squirrels, and it is on the horizon.Seattle, Washington, Portland, Oregon, Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York City. It’s only a matter of time.Inept, corrupt administrations playing got-you politics with the homeless are pushing the United States to a catastrophe.When the children of the middle class start dying, then maybe someone will wake up.Edmond DayRotterdamPolice try to improve our quality of life According to recent articles by the NYCLU, the police are not going to divulge to everyone what weapons or aids they may carry for defense of the public and themselves.As I recall, Article 35 CPL dictates when deadly physical force is justified in detail. The use of other devices depends on many things. Each call is different. Police officers are not the punching bags for the public. If you assault them, they will respond in force.Schenectady Police Department , I believe, does what I call “selective enforcement.” They go where crimes are being committed to reduce them and improve the quality of life for law-abiding citizens in that part of the community. They are not driven by racial prejudice, as inferred. Legalization of marijuana would be especially bad for students. THC disrupts functioning of brain areas controlling memory, balance, coordination, posture and reaction time. Schenectady schools had the lowest graduation rate in the region (58 percent) last year. Obviously marijuana use impairs thinking and ability to learn and perform complicated tasks. Schenectady police are damned if they do and damned if they don’t. They are trying to help improve the quality of life for all citizens. Give them your support.Ray WempleSchenectadyThe writer is a retired sergeant with the Schenectady Police Department.More from The Daily Gazette:Foss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsGov. Andrew Cuomo’s press conference for Sunday, Oct. 18EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the census Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionUse trained dogs to protect school kidsGuns and Noses: Should someone carry concealed weapons in schools? Well, if you are a parent whose child was a victim of some fame-seeking psychopath, you might say, “If only someone…”If you are a member of the gun-control group, you might say, “Over my dead body.”That might be an inappropriate thing to say, however.But, how about this: Put one, just one, highly trained police dog in the hands of a competent hall monitor in every school. Why not? Those dogs are faster than a gun-toting retired or off-duty patrolman. In a New York minute, a German Shepard or a Doberman could run down and hold, literally hold, a perpetrator at bay. And, kids, well most kids, like dogs. The students could name their new hall monitor and its handler. What a mascot for the school. “Hey, you should see our new dog. He’s our friend.”  Oh, yes, I know. We would soon have the ‘No dogs parents’ group bull-horning its way into board of education meetings in protest. But, until then, I’ll bet those fame-seeking cowards who prey on our children might think twice about how they are going to take care of those nasty bite marks on their arms and legs. Just sayin’.Allen R. RemaleySaratoga Springslast_img read more
