Pay more attention to people’s problems
I listen to all the news channels and their views.
The problem I have with their reporting is most of their contributions are this or that, they say what they would have done.
In fact they can do nothing.
The people that face today’s problems are not being listened to or are being ignored.
We have to pay attention to the people that face these problems today. Wake up people. Wake up, politicians.
Daylight saving time change poses danger
An important factor that most advocates of extending daylight saving time (DST) fail to take into account is that the sun rises and sets an hour later on the western edge of a time zone than on the eastern edge.
If DST is extended, kids waiting for a school bus who live near the eastern edge may have a little light on winter mornings if school starts a half hour later, but it will still be dark for kids 800 miles to the west.
I suppose schools further west could start school later in the morning.
But you might want to ask the kids if they’re OK with coming home that late, especially those who stay after school for extracurricular activities.
Then there’s the matter of school buses interfering with rush-hour traffic, which seems to start about 4 p.m. these days.
Nisky needs balance on its Town Board
Mr. Spear yet again has written another letter to the editor on March 25 tooting the horn of the Democrats on the Niskayuna Town Board, while trying to diminish the efforts of our Supervisor, Yasmine Syed.
Last week, it was a town employee writing a story about nothing regarding the O.D. Heck property. It just goes on and on.
I was glad to read our supervisor responding to this incorrect and unfortunate story.
What our town needs more than anything right now is balance on this board and support for our excellent supervisor.
Mr. Spear says he moved to this town because of the Town Board’s leadership that is keeping taxes low. What? You might want to fact-check that.
I hope the residents in this town wise up to the tactics of this board and vote for change. No need to give this change to Mr. Spear, as his taxes are already low. I crack myself up.
