first_imgI find it amazing that 89 percent of the Democrats in the Senate voted against confirming Mike Pompeo as Secretary of State and 88 percent voted against Gina Haspel to head the CIA. This, of course, includes both New York senators.  I guess these senators didn’t want our three U.S. citizens back from North Korea or a chance for a nuclear-free Korea, and I guess they think Haspel will be too hard on terrorists.Or maybe they don’t trust a woman to lead the agency.William MalecGalwayMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?Police: Schenectady woman tried to take car in Clifton Park hours after arrest, release in prior the…EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homes Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinionlast_img read more

first_imgBoard members owe public a responseI had a few comments with regard to the proposed Niskayuna school budget that was covered in the “Your Schools” budget issue. While there was a reasonable effort to control costs in a number of areas, there were a number that exceeded a level of 3 percent,  which is above the current rate of inflation. If those areas were held to a 3 percent increase, the proposed budget would be $1,453,000 less and would result in a decease in the tax levy, not an increase. Two areas of note were “Human Resources” and “Superintendent’s Office,” both up 40 percent. In another breakout, administrative expenses were up 13 percent.I sent my comments to the school board and received a response from the board president that public sessions were being held and I could attend one for additional information.In the past when I have sent comments to the school board, I always heard back from the board president, but never from any other board person. In raising the question to the board president, I was told that “the board president is charged with the responsibility to speak on behalf of the board to media and public inquiry.”It’s really disappointing that our elected officials are not allowed to comment on inquiries/comments that their electorate might have. It smacks of suppression of speech. One has to ask how they can make an informed decision on who they want to elect if they can’t get the individual’s position on an issue.Jim VincentNiskayuna End U.S. sanctions, threats to VenezuelaCount me among those opposed to the U.S. war on Venezuela. The United States has imposed increasingly severe sanctions on the Venezuelan economy, is pressuring other nations to comply with these sanctions, and Venezuelans fear a possible U.S. military attack. President Trump and much of the mainstream news media are confusing the public.The United States is supposedly trying to bring humanitarian aid to Venezuela. Usually left unsaid is the United States has heavily damaged the Venezuelan economy, creating the “need” for the aid. Mr. Trump no more cares about Venezuelans than he does about Yemenis.U.S. corporations dominated the Venezuelan economy for much of the 20th century and took away enormous profits while poverty for the masses persisted. Few Venezuelans desire a rerun. With its huge petroleum, iron and natural gas deposits, Venezuela could be a very prosperous nation, if allowed to — although Venezuelans, like everyone else, will have to reckon with climate change.The Trump Administration is now pretending and promoting a minor political figure as the legitimate Venezuelan president, despite the current president having won about two-thirds the vote in the 2018 election that was widely recognized worldwide as fairly conducted.The U.S. has no legal or moral authority to wreck the Venezuelan economy or to attack or invade.Venezuela is a sovereign nation with the right to make its own policy decisions. It’s time to end the sanctions and military threats.Tom EllisAlbany Grateful for all the help cleaning yardHow do you thank 20 to 30 kids, teachers and parents that came on April 13 and raked and cleared up our whole yard? Teachers Mrs. Kathlyn McCarthy and Mrs. Sheri Boardman and the Future Farmers of America and Junior Future Farmers of America from Fonda-Fultonville Central School came and worked.In one hour, they had our yard cleaned up so great. It would take me all summer to get the flower beds raked and pine needles picked up. They brought their own rakes and wheelbarrows. Branches were picked up. They came through Montgomery County Veterans and Youth Bureau. Their cars and trucks lined our whole street.If you are a veteran or know one who needs any kind of help, have them call and get on the help list: 518-853-8152. I’m so thankful for the spring clean-up of our yard.Mary Lou CoughlinTribes Hill Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionSupport candidates who support securityI have been involved in local politics for a long time and never have I seen this amount of energy surrounding a school board race. Shaun Wiggins, Dean Kolligian, Ed Cubanski and Saratoga Parents for Safer Schools raised an unprecedented $33,000 for the Saratoga Springs school board race. Ninety-nine percent of those donations came from people that live in the district. This just goes to show you what the mainstream opinion is around keeping our kids safe in the schools.I will be happily voting for Shaun, Ed and Dean on May 21 because they support common-sense security measures that the experts say will keep our kids, faculty and staff safe in the schools.David BuchynWilton More from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationGov.

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionCan see why FBI, media aren’t trustedIt is not often that Madame et moi go to the movies. However, when one of our favorite directors, Clint Eastwood, makes a film, we try to see it.We do not see Eastwood’s films just because he is conservative. We see his films because Hollywood is not. That being said, Eastwood’s ‘Richard Jewell’ is one of his best. Jewell was the soft-spoken slightly handicapped security guard working the Olympic Park in Atlanta in 1996.A somewhat zealous but sincere Jewell discovers a bomb and tries to warn Olympic-goers to move away from danger. But an explosion maims and kills hundreds before he is completely successful.A female newspaper reporter and an FBI agent conspire and immediately point to Jewell as the perpetrator of the terrorist act. The American media fans the flames of guilt, and an innocent American is swamped (interesting turn of a word) by unnecessary attention.After viewing the film, it was difficult for me to think of the FBI as anything but a biased, intolerant mob protecting its own derrière. My opinion of the media is worse. However, there does seem to be a similar case of foot-in-mouth disease working its way through Washington, D.C., these days. I am beginning to understand why people are referring to these two organizations (the FBI and the media) as part of the Deep State. Oops, I left out Congress. My bad.Allen R. RemaleyScottsdale, Ariz., and Saratoga Springs Prevent cancer with screening, shotsIf you could prevent cancer, wouldn’t you? You can. In fact, there are two ways to prevent cervical cancer: vaccination and screening.Most cervical cancers are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV).Being vaccinated against HPV could prevent most cervical cancers. The HPV vaccine is recommended for boys and girls between the ages of 9 and 14, and young adults through age 26.This vaccine provides protection to girls from cervical cancer later in life, and protection to both boys and girls from several other cancers.The second way to prevent cervical cancer is by getting screened.Cervical cancer screening tests can find the cells that lead to cancer before it starts. These cells can then be removed. Screening also helps to find cancer early when it may be most easily treated.Screening should begin at age 21 and is covered under most health plans, including Medicaid plans and plans participating in the New York State of Health.No insurance? No problem.The Cancer Services Program (CSP) of Fulton, Montgomery and Schenectady Counties can help eligible, uninsured women age 40 and older get cervical cancer screening.The program, which is supported with funds from New York State, also provides free breast and colon cancer screening to eligible New York State residents. Call 1-866-442-CANCER (2262) to find out if you qualify for free cancer screenings.Talk to your health care provider about cervical cancer screening or you can reach the CSP in Fulton, Montgomery and Schenectady Counties by calling 518-841-3726.Suzanne HagadornAmsterdamMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsGov.
