Letters to the Editor for Sunday, Oct. 6

first_imgControl of Glenville should stay in townTown of Glenville residents should note that on the Nov. 5 ballot are two candidates for Glenville Town Council that are village of Scotia residents.The residents of the village have the opportunity to vote on Glenville town issues and offices, however the reverse is not applicable. Village residents also have the ability to run for town office, but again the reverse is not allowed. Seems inappropriate.This inequality should be rectified for future election cycles. However, that is the operating procedure. As a town of Glenville resident for 35 years, I do not want village residents deciding my future for elected offices or town issues.Furthermore, one of the candidates is a village employee and manages the village Highway Department. I would assume that he would need to recuse himself in any town vote that addressed highway or own infrastructure issues. That would not be in the best interest of the town or village.On the ballot there are two candidates, Jim Martin and Gina Wierzbowski, that are town of Glenville residents that have served the town well for many years and deserve to be re-elected to the Town Council position.W. Thomas BirdGlenvilleDon’t risk chance of second Trump termI am of the seemingly unique position that I despise Donald Trump but don’t think the Democrats should try to impeach him, for the reasons that it has no chance of getting through the Senate and could help Trump’s chances of reelection.When I’ve discussed this with people, one thing a lot of them have said to me is (something to the degree of) that the risk is worth it for the sake of upholding the law and/or doing the moral thing.If nothing else was at stake I would fully be on board. But would it be worth a second Trump term?Would it be worth the suffering of those who will suffer if Trump’s policies at the border or foreign policy in Yemen and Palestine continue into his second term?Would it be worth a very possible recession from his economic policies? Would it be worth the blood of American soldiers and foreign civilians that will spill if Trump continues our countless wars in his second term? Would it be worth putting ourselves at even further risk of climate catastrophe with Trump’s terrible climate policies? Would it be worth it for a legal action that will likely ultimately amount to very little, and really has lost much of its meaning since Lyndon Johnson got away with the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, and George W. Bush got away with the Patriot Act, and etc.?As I hope that Trump doesn’t get reelected, I urge the Democrats to tread cautiously.Matt OillSchenectadyLiteracy group helps out the entire regionSeptember, National Literacy Month, is over, but the work of Literacy New York: Fulton, Montgomery and Schoharie Counties continues all year.Our volunteer tutors teach adult students reading and math skills for free. It’s difficult work but highly rewarding. Many of our students go on to get a high school equivalency diploma, a job or a better job than they already have. I consider our organization an economic engine for upstate New York.I became a board member of our three-county group in 2007. I joined because I thought it would be wonderful if adults could read a newspaper or the latest best seller.Quickly I learned we’re not about that at all. When they start our courses, many students can’t read a medicine label, simple directions or a job application. When they complete our program, they can do all that and more.I’m writing to urge support for our three-county group, which has offices in Gloversville and Cobleskill. I’m proud that our dedicated tutors do so much for the Capital Region and its people.Jim PooleCobleskillMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s press conference for Sunday, Oct. 18EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homes Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionSurveys becoming a big intrusion in lifeRecently I was “selected” by a major political party to answer a survey questioning what their election strategy should be.Don’t they have paid consultants for this? Surveys of my feelings about a recent visit to my doctor; a hotel that I stayed at; from my car dealer’s service department about a recent repair they performed on my automobile. And now watch out. We’ve arrived at the season of political surveying.Recently in a weak moment, I began to check off the answers to an email survey from a nearby chain supermarket where we regularly shop. Halfway through, my progress was interrupted by a pop-up stating that my replies to the first half of the survey didn’t qualify me to take the second half. I’m trying to help them improve their services and now my opinions are being suppressed?One survey that I’d enthusiastically answer would be regarding impeachment of that person in the White House masquerading as our president.And now comes the ultimate intrusion in my life: Nielsen, the professional research company, has sent a consumer survey containing 227 questions. One dollar bill attached for my consideration, and the munificent sum of $10 to fill out the survey. I’ll take a pass on that one.    Feedback is valuable in any business or service that caters to the public, but I’ve got other fish to fry while the survey requests mercilessly keep rolling in. Maybe I should hire a secretary.Dan RileyClifton Parklast_img read more

Tennis Greats Raise A$4m for Australian Bushfire Victims

first_img“Back home in Canberra, I couldn’t even go outside. It was emotional,” said Kyrgios, who made the first pledge to the appeal.“I’m so happy we had Roger, Rafa, Novak [Djokovic] – some of the greats to get behind it. We’re doing everything we possibly can to overcome this together.”A number of players have pledged to donate money for each ace they hit while in Australia, including all those involved in the exhibition match.Ongoing bushfires in the country have killed at least 28 people and destroyed an estimated 10 million hectares (100,000 sq km) of land.Australian Open qualifying has also been affected by smoke in Melbourne, with the city’s air quality rated “very poor” on Wednesday.The two teams for the doubles were:• Team Serena Williams: Dominic Thiem, Petra Kvitova, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal.• Team Caroline Wozniacki: Coco Gauff, Alexander Zverev, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Naomi Osaka.Kyrgios, representing Team Wozniacki, then played a singles match against Federer for Team Williams, with the Swiss winning 7-6 (7-4). Team Williams were also the overall winners.American Williams, a 23-time Grand Slam singles champion, said she had taken her daughter, Olympia, to meet the firefighters.“For 20 years, this has been my home. We’re all here tonight to support and help out,” she added.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram A number of tennis greats played in a charity match to take the amount of money raised for the bushfire appeal to over 4m Australian dollars.Home player Nick Kyrgios raised A$1,600 (£954) in aces alone at Wednesday’s Rally for Relief, while Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal – who between them have won 39 Grand Slams – joined together to donate A$250,000 (£132,285).The firefighters in attendance were given a lengthy, standing ovation by the crowd, while one joined Nadal on court to play doubles.last_img read more

Nelson Home Building Centre Leafs Player Profile of the Week — Carsen Willans

first_imgDespite being small in stature, Carsen Willans, all 5’8” of him, plays the game with no fear, speeding around the NDCC ice like a very explosive heat-seeking missile.Whether the opponent is big or small, Willans has a way of going into the corner without the puck and coming out with the piece of rubber and has been a key cog in the Leafs 10-0-1-1 start, tops in the hotly contested Neil Murdoch Division.Willans and the rest of the Leafs take to the road for a three-game swing through the Okanagan/Shuswap Conference.The Heritage City native is the feature in this week’s edition of the Nelson Home Building Centre Leafs Player Profile of the Week.Carsen WillansAge: 19Birth place: NelsonHeight: 5’8”Weight: 168 poundsYears in Hockey: 14 yrsHometown: NelsonFavorite NHL Player: Patrick KaneFavorite NHL Team: Toronto Maple LeafsFavorite Music: CountryPre-Game Meal: Chicken Stir Fry  Biggest accomplishment in hockey: B.C. Bantam Rep champions 2009Job: Student, attends Selkirk College, First-year engineeringNickname: CarsOther interests: Fishing, Wakeboarding, and hanging out with my friendsTwitter or Facebook: TwitterThe Nelson Daily: What are your strengths as a player?Carsen Willans: Speed is my number one asset at my size you need to be able to get out of trouble quicker than you get in it. I like to work the corners.TND: What are your team goals this season?C.W.: This is good team and we would like to qualify for the Cyclone Taylor rather than just get in as the host. Once the tournament starts we would like to be playing our best hockey and hopefully win the cup on home ice. TND: What are your individual goals this season and beyond?C.W.: I would like to contribute at both ends of the ice and help the Leafs realize their team goals.TND: You’re 5’8” . . . small by hockey scouts. What do you do to overcome this size disadvantage playing against bigger players?C.W.: Again my speed comes in handy I am able to get in and make a play before the big guys arrive.

Have you always wanted to play for the Leafs?C.W.: Yes TND: You spell your first name with an “e” instead of “o”. How many times do you think you’ve had to correct people spelling your name?C.W.: I accept it both ways now.TND: Where do you hope to be next year? 5 years? 10 years?C.W.: In five years I would like to be graduating from a major university with an engineering degree.

10 months agoIcardi family rift goes public between brother and wife

first_imgAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say Icardi family rift goes public between brother and wifeby Carlos Volcano10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveInter Milan captain Mauro Icardi says he won’t be pressured into signing a new deal.However, a family rift has been revealed involving his wife and agent, Wanda Nara.Icardi posted to Instagram: “I want to clarify to all the fans who read work written by pseudo-journalists in ‘serious’ newspapers, which write or give instructions to write without knowing or having a real idea of the facts, that my renewal will only take place when Inter make me a correct and concrete offer.“Only after that can we talk about my renewal with truth, while putting to one side the lies that have been spread.”His brother Guido, on the other hand, could not resist a dig at Nara, suggesting she was a ‘parasite’.“Of course, he turns over €20,000 a week to me …” replied the tattoo artist to a question about whether Mauro helped him financially.When asked about his relationship with Mauro, he responded: “I never said that it was all bad with him, just that there are too many parasites attached to his wallet, but he’s an example for me and I love him generally speaking.”So what does he think about his sibling’s wife?“Obviously…” he wrote, followed by a vomiting emoji. last_img read more

2015 ACC Tournament Bracket, Schedule, Analysis

first_imgACC tournament bracket for 2015 season.The 2015 ACC men’s basketball tournament is set to begin this Tuesday, March 10 and conclude on Saturday, March 14. It will take place at the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, NC. Here’s the bracket, along with the times for each game. Ticket information is available here. 2015acctourney(@LifeOfADukeFan)Every ACC Tournament game will be available on either ESPN or ESPN2, as well as the ACC Network. dukeFavorite: DukeVirginia clinched its second straight ACC regular season title after finishing 16-2 in conference play and 28-2 overall. The Cavaliers are a good bet to clinch a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament, and have perhaps the toughest defense in the nation, but right now it is hard to argue against Duke as the hottest team in the league. After a shaky (by Duke standards) 4-3 start in ACC play, the Blue Devils rattled off 11 straight wins to finish with a 15-3 conference record. Duke’s explosive offense hasn’t been held under 70 points since January, when it became one of only two teams to beat Virginia, knocking off the Hoos 69-63 in Charlottesville. Duke has the most talented post player in the country in Jahlil Okafor, a terrific guard combo in Quinn Cook and Tyus Jones, and a dynamic wing player in freshman Justise Winslow. There should also be plenty of Duke fans making the trip to Greensboro, which gives Coach K’s team a definitive edge over most ACC foes. ncstateSleeper: North Carolina StateIt is hard to get a read on the Wolfpack this season. Mark Gottfried’s team is capable of losing to the ACC’s bottom feeders (88-84 at Wake Forest, 79-63 at Boston College), but it also holds wins over Duke, Louisville, and North Carolina this season. The ‘Pack is coming off of a very nice season-ending win against Syracuse, defeating the Orange 71-57 in Raleigh. N.C. State enters the ACC Tournament as the No. 7 seed, and will face Pittsburgh, a team that it defeated 68-50 in early January, in its first game. With a win, the Wolfpack will have a chance to pick up a second win against Duke. N.C. State fans should also have a strong showing in Greensboro, as they did last year, when the Wolfpack made a run to the semi-finals, helping push the team off the bubble and into the NCAA Tournament. The Wolfpack are no lock for the Big Dance, and can help themselves with a good performance in Greensboro once again.last_img read more
