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.

Imagination and lies, says Infantino of UEFA election link

first_imgBy Brian HomewoodZURICH, Switzerland (Reuters) – FIFA president Gianni Infantino has dismissed as “imagination and lies” any suggestion that he lobbied in favour of Aleksander Ceferin who was elected head of European soccer’s governing body UEFA this week.Ceferin, little-known outside his native Slovenia until three months ago, swept to a resounding win on Wednesday, picking up 42 of the 55 votes cast by UEFA’s member associations.The other 13 went to his only rival, experienced Dutch administrator Michael van Praag.“Mr Ceferin has said it as well, this is imagination and lies and I think the result speaks for itself,” former UEFA general secretary Infantino told reporters.“It’s an insult to the intelligence of the 55 associations who go and vote … convinced by a programme.”In July, world soccer’s ruling body FIFA denied a report in the Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant that Infantino was interfering in UEFA’s election.However, the allegations have continued to gather momentum and a report by the Norwegian website Josimar last week, which made similar claims, led to a brief spat between the two candidates.van Praag said in a tweet that he was “shocked” to read the story and that UEFA was back to its old way of doing business.Ceferin, elected president of Slovenia’s football federation in 2011, replied that his rival was trying to pollute the campaign.Infantino said Wednesday’s voters were looking for a fresh approach from the replacement for Michel Platini who had governed UEFA since 2007 and been re-elected twice until he was banned by FIFA in October for ethics violations.“It was a very convincing success,” explained Infantino. “He has some very good ideas, he is a new face for many but he is a very competent person, head of a national association.“I think the associations who voted have sent a clear message they wanted somebody new. This is the democracy, it was an important success because also with the numbers it gives him the legitimacy to do the reforms.”last_img read more

Officer, Tim Marquardt on standby.“With all of the stuff that he deals with we just wanted to tell him how much we actually appreciate him. He does go through a lot and I think he’s given a bad rep for that, but he does deserve a lot of respect because without him things would be tough around here, so it’s just nice knowing he’s here,” 12th grader, Ben Dault said.Showing just how much they appreciate Officer Marquardt, students wrote thank you cards.“I know he has a lot of stress, and a lot of responsibility, and we just wanted to shed light on that,” Lars MacArthur said.Surprised by his gifts, the cards moved Officer Marquardt.“That made my day. Sometimes it just takes a thank you like that and these guys went above and beyond what would normally be a thank you,” Marquardt said.And although he doesn’t plan on wearing the blue uniform, Officer Marquart has inspired one student to go into another unique officer role.“I actually plan on going into the DNR,” Nate Cosbitt revealed.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisContinue ReadingPrevious Fine Arts Students At ACC Show Off Their CreationsNext Alpena High School Student Wins 3rd Place in Essay Competitionlast_img read more


Local and state agencies partner to increase recycling

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisALPENA, Mich. — Alpena County is teaming up with the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) to improve Michigan’s recycling. Members from both EGLE and officials from Alpena County met on Monday to kick off a new campaign at the Alpena Resource Recovery Facility.In Michigan, the recycling rate is only 15%, one of the lowest in the nation. This new campaign, called “Know It Before You Throw It,” aims at doubling the state’s recycling rate to 30% by 2025. This will involve increasing the amount of education provided to Michigan residents. The ultimate goal is to reach 45%.Michigan State Representative Sue Allor spoke at the event. “I think it’s essential that we recycle throughout Michigan,” she said. “That’s the main way we can help to protect our environment, and that’s something that we, as citizens, need to focus on.”The Alpena Resource Recovery Facility has already broken last year’s record of recyclable materials collected and shipped to market. The facility isn’t stopping now, as this new partnership hopes to double that record by December 31.Chair of the Alpena County Board of Commissioners, Brad McRoberts, says everyone should just take a little time to make sure they are recycling properly, which will help everyone in the long run. “We should care about our grand kids, our kids, and the environment, so it’s a good deal to start recycling.”Legislators increased funding for the Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy from 2 million last year to 15 million this year. These extra funds will go towards the development of recycling markets, increase access to recycling opportunities and support planning efforts to grow recycling at the local level.  AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: alpena, Alpena County Board of Commissioners, Alpena Resource Recovery Facility, and Energy, EGLE, Great Lakes, MICHIGAN, Michigan Department of Environment, recycling, Sue AllorContinue ReadingPrevious Alpena – Montmorency – Alcona ESD removes mold from central office before school startsNext Chester the Therapy Dog makes debut at Oscoda Area Schoolslast_img read more
