Tesla’s theory of ‘free’ electricity has fundamental flaw Karen Cookson’s Aug. 11 Viewpoint on renewable energy, “Time to renew our efforts,” raises some important issues about replacing fossil fuels with renewal energy sources.

Rosemarie Pugliese, I agree, if anyone should have been made an example, it was him. He should have been given a sentence of 12 to 24 years, make him pay for his crimes. Then Soares could have really taken credit for stopping animal cruelty. What Soars allowed to happen is a travesty and another reason why he should not be elected as DA again.

Ada Friedman-Proctor's could care less about historic preservation. If they did the historic IOOF temple would still be on State Street. Proctor's needs to start paying a fair share PILOT and stop taking taxable properties permanently off City assessment rolls. A double whammy we can no longer afford.

Jay Janczak "It’s time to make them accountable for their expenses."____GOOD COMMENT except you forget the NYS Legislature is nothing but a sewer and the KING RATS do as they please. They have worked the system in such a way that they are accountable to no one. Not many NY residents can steal $100k+ and get off the hook by saying "I made a mistake"

Ms. Sproule, I wonder what the Feds will say and in fact do. Americans with Disabilities Act contains the Right to Risk clause in its employment section. Put simply, it means employers can not discount an otherwise qualified candidate with mobility issues because the workspace is on an upper floor. If the person is up for the risk, they must be considered along with all others.

Your daughter's situation was not quite the same. No one knows the two administrators thoughts, or, intent. Communication with your daughter was certainly poor. Based on what you've shared, I do not see a material harm, or, loss incurred by her. I guess your actions have put the district on notice to do more communicating. Rachel might ask advocates at Resource Center for Independent Living 842-3561 to advise the district on proper protocols for such situations.

Very sorry it happened as it did.
