Does 24-hour Wi-Fi cost the taxpayers more? If not, keep it on.
If you allow 24-hour library Wi-Fi access in rural areas, how do you justify withholding the same service from city residents? Our rural neighbors lack access, as do city residents. High cost is a factor in both communities (satellite internet is available to rural residents, but it is expensive). One could argue that 24-hour access to city residents has a greater positive impact than rural residents, if you consider raw numbers.
Congregating around a library to use the internet is hardly a crime. In fact, quite the opposite. Until Mayor McCarthy’s smart Wi-Fi is widely available, there is a need for internet access in our community (yes, for night owls). To library director Karen Bradley, consider your library’s mission and the answer is clear.

These attacks on Ms. Niccoli are un-American. I am pleased to see religious leaders stand up for her, and Mr. Amedore reinforce his support of the protections of the Constitution (including the separation of church and state). He could go further and denounce the attacks, but as a politician who benefits maybe he prefers to sit this one out. Smearing a political candidate is a distraction from the real issues, like ethics reform in Albany.

Thank you vocal Democrats. To the Republican House leadership: bring bills to the floor so legislators from both parties can debate and vote. To all of you: You represent the people, not the lobbies. And the people say it's high time for common-sense gun legislation, including restrictions on assault weapons.

Reporter Zachary Matson is an excellent writer. I've been following his work on education matters and it stands out. What a great addition to the Daily Gazette team! Thank you.

To be clear, Clinton does NOT have enough pledged delegates (voters) to win the nomination. Even after the primaries are over, neither she nor Bernie Sanders will likely have enough to be declared the nominee. When is the last time this happened? That is the real news here.
The superdelegates -- free agents who can back whoever they want -- will not select the Democratic nominee for President until late July at the convention. So this article, picked up from the Washington Post, jumps the gun -- even if a Clinton is the probable nominee. Today California, New Jersey, etc. votes. Can The Daily Gazette at least wait until polling ends before jumping on the bandwagon with these pronouncements?

Sanders essentially tied Clinton in Kentucky (she won by 0.5%) and he beat her in Oregon by 9%. Sanders has won 3 of the last 4 primary contests with significant spreads. Shouldn't Clinton, with so much name recognition and party backing, be doing better if she wants to beat Trump in Nov? What does it mean when a "Democratic socialist" from the tiny state of Vermont is pulling out wins?

St Rose administrators cannot argue with the facts of the report -- so they "kill the messenger." That's a tired tactic. But I guess it's the best the college's very expensive public relations consultants have to offer.
