Focus on the present instead of on Trump
Trump is gone. So, why do people continue to criticize him in their Letters to the Editor in The Daily Gazette?
Our country has a new president, and it would, certainly, be more positive to focus on this rather than what Trump did or didn’t do.
The coronavirus has impacted all of the Earth’s citizens and it is still here, but someday it will be gone — just like Trump. Let it be.

Sid Brown created fond memories
Sid Brown was a wonderful man who had a great, varied and interesting life.
He was an admirable man and an outstanding photographer.
I worked with Sid many times since 1972 when I was the media contact for the state hospital association, then later, Ellis Hospital.
Watching him set up a shot, even a mundane group shot, was always interesting and always a learning experience.
In The Gazette article on Jan. 31, (“Longtime Gazette photographer Sid Brown dead at 93”), a number of the comments from friends and co-workers said it best and should be said again. Sid Brown was a nice guy.
Appreciative of free access to e-edition
Thank you for the link for today’s paper (Tuesday, Feb. 2) in the P.M. edition email.
It has been a problem lately that I don’t receive the paper when it snows. I prefer the printed copy of the paper, but I really appreciate receiving the online version for the day so I could keep up with the news.
Library grateful for all the assistance
The Schenectady County Public Library, with all of its branches, is independently chartered by the state of New York and has served the needs of the county for many years.
We are grateful to the Schenectady County Legislature for the allocation of funds for most of our operations.
The county owns the buildings we use and provides valuable services to our patrons and employees.
This year has been unusual for all libraries in terms of circulation, funding, and programming.
In the face of this, the trustees wish to thank our director, Karen Bradley, and her staff for their great flexibility and service to the common good as they volunteered to serve county needs in a variety of very important ways that did not involve the mission of the library.
We also want to call attention to the fine work of our County Manager, Rory Fluman, in his efforts to negotiate the complicated interrelationships of county organizations to save lives.
Finally, as we look forward to the day when the library can circulate materials and have in-person programming, we want to thank our patrons for their patience. The staff and the Trustees are eager to gear up again to bring cultural richness to every person.
