Let’s go easy on the caffeine Clifton Park

first_imgPeople in Clifton Park have a serious coffee issue. They say that caffeine is the most abused drug in the world, and Clifton Park is a great example of this. Many people in this town visit coffee shops every day like Dunkin’ Donuts, Starbucks and others and they demand their coffee to be made just right and perfectly on time. I have seen customers throw hissy fits because they didn’t get a “fresh pot.” But at shops like Dunkin’ Donuts, the coffee is never more than 17 minutes old. So don’t expect the employees to waste perfectly good coffee just because you want the top of the pot. Maybe consider other ways to wake yourself up in the morning. If you are dependent on caffeine just to function, then you have a serious issue.MacGregor WinegardClifton ParkMore from The Daily Gazette:Foss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusHigh-risk COVID exposure reported in Clifton ParkControversial solar project goes before Clifton Park Planning Board Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinionlast_img read more

Letters to the Editor for Saturday, April 20

first_imgSteck admits the Reproductive Health Act allows abortions through birth due to “health” of the mother. “Health” defined as virtually anything. He doesn’t refute this fact; he simply states he agrees with that standard. Steck thinks this is OK. Well, it’s not OK with me and it’s not OK with most Americans. Phil Steck should get over himself. Voters see him for what he is; a self-important narcissist who cares more about his own political advancement than the lives of innocent babies.Jennifer RichardsBurnt Hills Murderer is a better term, and so are the legislators who applauded him after Cuomo signed into law the Reproductive Health Care Act. And no opposition from the rest of the ineffectual politicians. Whatever happened to decency and morality? You should all be voted out of politics.And now Cuomo wants to drug the population with marijuana. And then we will have to worry about airplane pilots, bus drivers, truck drivers, etc. smoking pot before going to work. And whatever happened to the belief that marijuana is a gateway drug to harder drugs?And to all the laid-back Republicans in Congress, how did they ever lose the House and the majority in the state Senate? Were they too busy making deals with the Democrats instead of standing by their convictions?And House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Charles Schumer, what have they done to prepare for the influx of illegal immigrants? Maybe they should demolish their “immoral” wall and give aid to these people who do not realize they are only wanted here by the Democrats for their votes. Parking garage will hurt Spa businessesThere’s no doubt the existing High Rock parking area next to the Saratoga Springs City Hall has great potential for our city. But building an $11-plus-million multi-story parking structure there for the Saratoga Springs City Center seems like the worst option for the economy of our city.When there’s a large event there today, visitors park for blocks around. They see and visit our wonderful city’s restaurants, shops, bars, hotels and museums. Just last month, Forbes Magazine called Saratoga Springs “The Jewel Of New York’s Hudson Valley.”By not having to go outside, visitors to the City Center probably won’t experience our “jewel,” or spend money at our businesses.After all, wasn’t the City Center built to boost our local economy?  Perhaps it would be better for the city if we eliminated all parking near it.Businesses in Saratoga Springs should be loudly protesting this parking structure. It virtually guarantees that City Center visitors will pass them by and that would be an economic shame.Charlie SamuelsSaratoga Springs Government is being taken over by loonsRegarding Gov. Andrew Cuomo, he does not deserve to be called governor. It seems as though our government, federal and state, is governed by too many loons. God help us.Shirley H. GuidarelliSchenectady 5. Jussie Smollet: What’s with Donald Trump weighing in on whether he should reimburse Chicago police? Why do taxpayers pay for rooms, security, policing, etc. when Trump stays at one of his hotels, which seems to be often. And his family coffers probably profit.6. And lastly, I’d like to invite Joe Biden to put his hands on my shoulders and kiss the top of my head. I saw Meghan Markle in a national magazine photo rubbing noses with a dignitary in New Zealand. It’s evidently a custom there. Perhaps we’ve gone a wee bit overboard. Ethel RobinsonSchoharie Soldiers also looked over their shouldersThis is in regard to the April 14 Daily Gazette article about Steve Trimm.He lamented “having to look over my shoulder all the time I was in Canada” where he took refuge from the draft in 1969. He was fearful of a man with a badge and a piece of paper.In Vietnam, many thousands of brave young American men and women and our many Allies were in fear of enemy gunfire, booby traps, and rockets. Some difference.Bob BriggsSaratoga SpringsThe writer is a USMC Vietnam veteran. Steck doesn’t care about innocent livesAssemblyman Phil Steck’s opinion letter proves how pompous and disconnected politicians really are. No one cares about Steck’s fanciful story telling about his family ancestry.Voters aren’t fooled by Steck’s legalese jargon intended to confuse and distract them from the truth. The truth is Phil Steck voted for a gross abortion expansion law that allows abortions through birth, denies medical care for babies who survive abortions, and removes legal protection for wanted pre-born babies under very narrow circumstances. Seek humane ways to get rid of beaversIt was discouraging to hear of the decision by Friends of Woodlawn Preserve to trap the beaver out of the preserve, especially when there is available a well-proven and humane way to solve their problem.How unusual it is that nature lovers have no interest in wildlife. In fact, they seek to destroy it.Incidentally, the conibear trap is particularly cruel and banned in most industrialized countries.Beryl DicksonSchenectady An estimated 20.7 million Americans needed treatment for substance use disorder (SUD) in 2017, but only about 4 million received any treatment for SUD.This current addiction treatment gap will never be closed with the current addiction workforce. To make a meaningful impact on the opioid overdose epidemic, it’s imperative that our country makes strategic investments to grow addiction specialists. Right now, Congress has an opportunity to fund two new programs that would strengthen the nation’s inadequate addiction treatment workforce.First, Congress should appropriate $25 million in funding for the Loan Repayment Program for Substance Use Disorder Treatment Workforce, authorized in the SUPPORT for Patients and Communities Act. This would provide for a new and robust student loan repayment program to professionals who pursue full-time SUD treatment jobs in high-need geographic areas.Second, Congress should appropriate $10 million in funding for the Mental and Substance Use Disorder Workforce Training Demonstration Program authorized in the 21st Century CURES Act. This would fund more training opportunities for medical providers who are willing to provide SUD treatment in underserved communities.I urge our lawmakers to take the next step and appropriate federal funds for these programs.Building a robust SUD treatment workforce is critical and should be part of any comprehensive federal response to the opioid overdose epidemic. Otherwise, far too many patients seeking treatment will continue to lack access to care and more lives will be lost.Melissa WeimerAlbany Here are a few choice quotes from the one and only Leonard Alfred Schneider, aka Lenny Bruce. Remember him, folks?“It’s the suppression of the word that gives it the power, the violence, the viciousness.” “The liberals can understand everything but the people who don’t understand them.”“Every group, every system has a set of values and morals and when you get outside these, then the alarms ring. I was politically incorrect to 95 percent of the country; luckily my 5 percent had the bread to come see me.”So, Union College President David Harris, just think how terribly boring, at the least, you and your political correctness would sound while going one on one with Lenny or someone like him today.Michael DziarnowskiSchenectady More from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationGov. Andrew Cuomo’s press conference for Sunday, Oct. 18EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the census Feds should support substance-abuse care Some questions that need to be answeredI’d like to comment briefly on several things if I may:1. Do conservative “Christians” in Washington, D.C., know that sanctuary cities were mandated in the Old Testament law?2. The economy: It’s supposed to be so great, but my groceries, gasoline, heating oil and other cost of living expenses keep going up and my income doesn’t.3. The wonderful tax bill: My return was the same as last year. Although the standard deduction was larger, taking away the individual deductions made it break even with previously. I assume a family with more than two children would lose on that one.4. The college admissions scandal: Evidently over 10 people have been charged, but the names repeated are those of the two actresses and a couple of the coaches. A bit biased. Also, how about athletes who get scouted. Are their scores ones to qualify them? We hear about tutors and money incentives. Double standard. It appears there are at least two proposals: one to make it into a music-and-arts center and the other to build a hotel and restaurant with resort housing.A comment by Caroga town board member James Long struck me as essential.Sherman’s present septic system is marginally adequate, and there’s no place to put one for a high-volume hotel and restaurant. That should rule out that option. Without adequate septic or sewage treatment, the lake water will ultimately become polluted, and the water will then flow out into Caroga Creek.I recall a dry summer some years ago when the Johnstown city water supply became dangerously low, and so they tapped the Caroga Creek for extra water. I wonder if they still do. The possibility of endangering a public water supply, local reservoir or people’s wells raises the questions beyond just Caroga Lake.The town officials and people of Caroga should be looking to reduce pollution in the lakes, not promote a development project that will ultimately increase it.Lawrence KingJohnstown Lenny Bruce abhorred political correctness Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionProtect our lakes by rejecting big projectsAs one who grew up in Fulton County in the days when going to Sherman’s in Caroga was the ultimate outing, it saddens me that today’s youngsters cannot have that pleasure.But today’s young people would probably find the Sherman’s that thrilled us to be pretty dull.The future of Sherman’s interests me and maybe to others who grew up in the area.I commend The Gazette for the March 17 story on the current Sherman’s controversy. Coach’s career always will be rememberedWith little fanfare a great high school basketball coach, Dick Suprunowicz, passed away a few weeks back. Mr. Suprunowicz coached Mont Pleasant High School basketball in the late 1950s and 1960s in Schenectady. Probably his greatest team was in 1961 with standout players such as Player of the Year Jerry Vinehout, Randy Cross, Bob Berube, Ralph DeRizzo, Roy Vacca, Paul Viscusi, Alex Perrymen and Ike Cooper. Toward the end of that year, they beat at the time a 47-game-undefeated Linton team, which easily was the most powerful basketball team inNew York state that year and a few years prior. It is sad to see that not even a word was mentioned in The Gazette sports section of this legendary coach and athlete. His distinguished career will always be remembered by many of us. God bless you.David LarrabeeColonielast_img read more

Letters to the Editor for Wednesday, Nov. 13

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionWhy just single out Trump for fraud?A New York judge orders Trump to pay $2 million for foundation misuse. Will Judge Scarpulia now look into the $150 million given to the Clinton Foundation by a Russian company? How was this money used? Why is there no checking into this apparent violation? I looked online and could not find anything relating to this abridge of ethics.Why are we constantly aiding Hillary, never finding even a lie or wrongdoing?Geraldine KrawitzSaratoga SpringsSee film, join talk on climate changeWe all know climate change is real, and it’s happening faster than scientists anticipated.The current administration has made things worse in the last three years, highlighted by leaving the Paris Climate Accord just when we need to work the hardest to stem the tide of global destruction.However, there seems to be a concerted effort by communities and organizations, both large and small, across the country to do what this administration refuses to do: face climate change head on and act swiftly to make the necessary changes.On Nov. 16 at 5:30 p.m., the First Reformed Church of Schenectady is hosting a free viewing of “Paris to Pittsburgh,” a National Geographic documentary about the problems we face and the variety of solutions people of all walks of life are putting into practice to stem the tide of climate change.This is a great opportunity for all to join a positive discussion around solutions to this crisis.Sean KentRexford Roundabouts offer no improvementWhat is with all these roundabouts? I’ve heard they make less fatalities, but more accidents. That makes no sense to me. I’m 73 and have been driving since I was 16 and have never had an accident. I’m in Clifton Park and the new one on Route 146 is a nightmare. I know of people who take a longer route around it to avoid it.Also the one over by the Rexford bridge is an accident waiting to happen. What was wrong with red means stop and green means go?Georgette IngogliaRexfordGrateful for town supervisor’s effortsJust a special “Thank You” to Ballston Town Supervisor Tim Szczepaniak for everything he has done for the town, its citizens and even those of us from neighboring communities. The beautiful CVS store and Stewart’s shop at the corner of Route 50 and Lakehill Road are a huge improvement over the previous eyesores that existed at that intersection.But more importantly, thank you, Mr. Szczepaniak, for your repeated efforts to bring a grocery store to the Ballston-Burnt Hills area. What a wonderful addition to Route 50 to have a Hannaford market located so close to our homes.As a senior, I am so appreciative of your efforts to have a beautiful new market within easy driving distance.  Asilda DubeCharltonRiggi was a voice of for Sch’dy residentsSchenectady residents lost a valuable council person in this year’s election.Vince Riggi was a huge voice on the council.

PREMIUM‘Political dynasties’ to take center stage again in 2020 elections

first_imgGoogle LOG INDon’t have an account? Register here Forgot Password ? Children of President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo, Vice President Ma’ruf Amin and Cabinet Secretary Pramono Anung are all seeking public office in various regions, yet they deny accusations that they are building political dynasties.Voters of Surakarta in Central Java, Medan in North Sumatra, South Tangerang in Banten and Kediri in East Java are to determine whether the highly connected candidates can fulfill their political ambitions in the Sept. 23 regional elections. The candidates would also be testing whether their fathers can help bring them victory.President Jokowi’s eldest son Gibran Rakabuming Raka announced at the end of 2019 that he would run to be mayor of Surakarta.

Millions could die if virus allowed to spread unchecked: UN chief

first_imgGuterres stressed the need for a coordinated global response to contain a “health catastrophe” that already has claimed the lives of more than 9,000 people and infected more than 217,500 around the world.”We need to immediately move away from a situation where each country is undertaking its own health strategies to one that ensures, in full transparency, a coordinated global response, including helping countries that are less prepared to tackle the crisis,” he said.Guterres appealed to Group of 20 nations to help out.”A wealthy country must not be convinced that it has only to deal with its own citizens,” he said. “My very strong appeal to the G20 is to have a particular concern with African countries and others in the developing world. Millions of people could die from the new coronavirus, particularly in poor countries, if it is allowed to spread unchecked, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned Thursday, appealing for a coordinated global response to the pandemic.”If we let the virus spread like wildfire — especially in the most vulnerable regions of the world — it would kill millions of people,” Guterres said.”Global solidarity is not only a moral imperative, it is in everyone’s interests,” he said. Topics :center_img “We must absolutely be strong in supporting them because the virus will come, is coming to them,” the UN chief said. “If that support is denied, we could have catastrophic consequences.”We could have millions of people dying and this is absolutely unacceptable.”Guterres urged governments to give “the strongest support to the multilateral effort to fight the virus, led by the World Health Organization, whose appeals must be fully met.””The health catastrophe makes clear that we are only as strong as the weakest health system,” he said.In terms of support for the global economy, Guterres said the focus should be on helping the most vulnerable: low income workers and small and medium-sized businesses.”That means wage support, insurance, social protection, preventing bankruptcies and job loss,” he said.Financial facilities are needed to support countries in difficulty, he said, adding that the IMF, World Bank and other international institutions have a key role to play.”And we must refrain from the temptation of resorting to protectionism,” he said. “This is the time to dismantle trade barriers and re-establish supply chains.”last_img read more
