Make statue garden in Schenectady

It seems a horrible waste of time, and money, but I do feel the incompetence involved in the removal, storage and secret relocation of the Statue of Liberty replica rises to the level of an impeachable offense.
Put the Lady back, sweep away the offenders and let’s get back to good, sound, reasonable governance for the people.
While they’re at it, they could relocate the statue of Tubman and Seward and the statue of Edison and Steinmetz to Liberty Park also. Give Schenectady a statue garden to brag about.

Photo of child, cow painted a picture

The photo on the front page of the Aug. 29 Daily Gazette could not have been more perfect. Photographer Peter R. Barber captured the little girl and the cow in a scene that could have been a Norman Rockwell painting. Kudos to Barber’s sharp eye.

Progressive-liberal policies hurt cities

Having been educated in biological sciences, I find it astounding that we have typhus breakouts in areas of our country due to humans living, sleeping and drugged-out on sidewalks, lying in their own filth, feces and drugs. 
Good Lord, typhus is a deadly disease that was last rampant 60 years ago in the unsanitary Nazi concentration camps, spread by lice and fleas. One might assume this is in some rural area of mid-America.
However, it turns out to be in our major, most beautiful cities. Los Angeles (with nearly 60,000 homeless people without shelter at any given night); San Francisco; Portland, Ore.; and Baltimore to name a few. What do these all have in common? Their governments are all proud bastions of progressive liberalism.
Is this the “shining beacon” the Democratic Party promises if elected?  
And what have the fathers of these cities been doing?
In June in L.A., a press conference was held on the steps of city hall and instead of addressing this man-made disaster as promised, council members mugged for the cameras and bashed President Trump.
Somehow fixing the homeless or waste problem is not on their docket; apparently the more pressing issue of ‘politically correct’ labeling of felons is, since this is what they spent their time legislating.
I’m tired of the self-aggrandizement of the progressive liberals at the expense of the safety of our citizens and country.
If the Democrats cannot see the destruction of their policies on our country, they do not deserve to serve.

Grateful for care of Ellis Hospital staff

On Aug. 24, I had to make an emergency trip to Ellis Hospital.
The staff, Dr. Robert Dachs, and the attending physicians went above and beyond to keep me comfortable. The nurses and doctor checked on me continuously. I have nothing but respect for all of them.
Words cannot express my gratitude for the care and attention that I received. I would highly recommend Ellis Hospital for any kid of medical emergencies or otherwise.
