Letters to the Editor

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionFed up with Cuomo and his bad policiesWell I don’t know about you, but I’m totally fed up with our governor, Andrew Cuomo.This is one of the highest- taxed states in the country. At his yearly speech, not a word was mentioned about lowering our taxes. And you know why? Because the governor uses our tax money as his pocket change doing what he wants.A perfect example is having signs made up at a cost of $8 million to put on the roadways to try and promote New York state.He knew they where illegal, and you and I paid for them to be put up and then taken down.He renames the Tappan Zee Bridge after his father, with no say from you and me. Trump is out for himself, not countryRegarding the letter from Dave Edwards on Dec. 17: Trump has divided our country by race, gender, age, sexual orientation, illegal vs. legal, police vs. criminal etc. Just look at the midterm vote. Trump and Republicans lost big-time and rightfully so. President Obama had no need to lie to give more than 20 million Americans health care, kids up to age 26 health coverage under their parents, coverage for pre-existing health conditions etc.  He and Democrats, doctors, hospitals, etc., worked to help pass ACA to make that happen.  President Obama did not have to lie, as you said, Mr. Edwards, about the Iran deal. He and nuclear scientists and Democrats worked to pass the Iran deal so nuclear material was not being developed to drop bombs on you and me or the rest of our world. President Obama was elected twice by more than a 50 percent margin. That percentage of winning had not happened since Ronald Reagan. President Obama was and is for all man/womenkind. That is what you call a leader. Trump is no man’s man or a leader. Trump is for himself, I can’t believe you can’t see that yet. The rest of us did and told you so on Nov. 6.  Diane Sanders Hombach SchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:Cuomo calls for clarity on administering vaccineEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsGov. Andrew Cuomo’s press conference for Sunday, Oct. 18EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen? I find it most disturbing that you would publish a political cartoon depicting Santa as Trump keeping kids in a cage. The actual truth is that this happened during the Obama Administration. I’ve been watching this for a while. Whether it’s false news like this or the likes of Paul Krugman filling your op-ed pages, it’s clear the truth is secondary to the narrative. But by publishing cartoons like this, you are undermining the Constitution and the heart of the American people. Here’s the deal: We see way past this dogma. So please, save your own credibility and present the world as it really is and not according to the AP or Washington Post.Patrick WalshGuilderlandEditor’s note: The cartoon did not depict Santa as Trump. It only had children in the cages asking for him to get them out. Publish viewpoints that reflect reality And here again, at a cost to us. Then he gives the house away to have Amazon build a new distribution building in Queens.God knows what our taxes will be, because it won’t be coming from Amazon that’s for sure.To put the icing on the cake, he supports legalizing marijuana, which is wrong, wrong, wrong.If you notice, there are at least a dozen, if not more, anti-smoking ads on TV, paid for by the state of New York — or should I say you and me the taxpayer.Simply put, give back the monies spent on these ads to the taxpayers or stop these anti-smoking commercials.You’re promoting pot smoking same as cigs.Paul DolhyRotterdamlast_img read more

Hampshire golfer leads South qualifiers for Grand Medal Final

first_img15 Apr 2012 Hampshire golfer leads South qualifiers for Grand Medal Final Hampshire golfer Caroline Pinder set up a special birthday present to herself when she won the South region qualifier for England Golf’s 2012 Grand Medal Final. The qualifying event, at Highgate in Middlesex, was contested by the best women club medal players from five Southern counties. The top 10 now go forward to the Grand Medal Final at Worcestershire Golf Club on Saturday, June 23 – the day before Caroline’s birthday. “I am chuffed to pieces,” said Caroline, from Gosport and Stokes Bay Golf Club. She had a net score of one-under par 70 and won the qualifier by two shots. Her fellow qualifiers are: Kay Clark (Wildernesse),  Felicity Saunders (Tyrrells Wood),  Jenny Frei (Cottesmore), Cecile Shek (Shirley Park), Caroline Roadnight (Waterlooville), Alex Ord (Boughton), Carol Bradshaw (South Winchester), Niki Orchard (Hartley Wintney) and Karen Webb (Southwood). They will join qualifiers from five other regions at the Grand Medal Final to compete for the title of England’s champion medal player. All the regional finalists returned the best four scores at their club in the English Women’s Medals during 2011. Caroline has been a golf club member for just two years and this is her biggest win to date – and she had to endure a long, anxious wait before it was confirmed. “I said beforehand that I’d like to be in the top half of the field. Then, when I came in, they said I was leading. That was at 3pm and I had to wait until 7.30pm to find out that I’d held on. It was agonising and the longer it went on the worse it got!” Caroline started golf with a group of friends – all fellow members of a netball team. “We started doing girlie golf and called ourselves ‘All the gear and no idea!’” However, she quickly got the idea, encouraged by her partner and other golfing members of her family, and is now down to 23 handicap, with another cut on the way. “Golf’s a real challenge and I just love it,” she said.
