NY is forcing wrong people out of state

Recently President Donald Trump announced that upon leaving office, he and his family will reside in Florida rather than his home of New York City.
The decision follows a trend of higher-income families and companies leaving New York and is based upon the high taxes in New York state, constant harassment by New York’s taxation department,= and in general poor treatment by New York’s governor, attorney general and Legislature.
Our classless governor’s response to President Trump – Good Riddance. Unfortunately, the wrong people are leaving New York.

Grateful for service of police, military

l would like to show my appreciation to the people who I think deserve praise for what they do and sacrifice for our country.
I am praising our members of our armed forces and our police officers.
As a proud citizen of this country, I am grateful that I am blessed with my freedom, which I owe to our brave members of our armed forces and also to our brave police officers. There are members of our armed forces and police officers who never knew me and never will know me who died so I could be free. Those remaining are pledging their allegiance to our country every day. Many have made the ultimate sacrifice or have been injured so we can be free.
Our brave members of our armed forces and our brave police officers are the backbone and security that we rely on to make our families, our neighborhoods and our country safe. It is due to their sacrifices that we are able to enjoy our freedom.
As our brave heroes, they need and deserve our respect as they strive to serve and protect us. We, as citizens, should be very thankful we have these heroes to defend us. They are the mighty force that keeps our country safe.
To all our brave heroes, I would like to say God bless you and thank you for your service to our country.

Enhance your life with an older dog

Save a life and make your own better by giving an older dog a home this month during national “Adopt a Senior Pet Month.” Many senior dogs are waiting in shelters right now, hoping to be part of a family again.
Puppies are cute, but older dogs are adorable, usually more mellow and house-trained, too. With a senior dog, what you see is what you get in size and personality.
Dogs today are living longer, healthier lives. Your act of kindness could also help you live a longer, healthier life.
Taking walks together is a great way to get more exercise and meet new friends. Just petting a dog lowers blood pressure.
The Animal Protective Foundation on Maple Avenue in Glenville offers a year-round discounted adoption fee for these wonderful dogs, and we may have an older dog ready to go home with you.
Be a hero by giving a senior pet the chance to love and be loved again. In return, you’ll receive the unconditional love, companionship and devotion of a very grateful dog.
To find your new best friend, simply search online at sites like petfinder.com or adopt-a-pet.com, or visit the Animal Protective Foundation.
