Letters to the Editor for Friday, Jan. 17

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionTrump rescued us from sleazy politicsIf you are going to scrutinize, examine, critique, criticize, fault and dissect every single policy, choice, decision, word, expression and tweet that our duly elected president makes, then you better start doing the same for the foolish, lying, cheating, anti-American, self-serving criminals in Washington who sit on the left side of the aisle with their counterpart conspirators and corrupt media.This country has not seen a president like this in 50 years who puts us, ‘We the American People’ on a pedestal and actively and earnestly works to fix everything broken by Washington.You might ask; Why have prior presidents not done the same? Simple — Trump doesn’t fear the corrupt, conniving, life-long politicians who comprise the Washington machine that rigged a system for their personal benefit of profit and power while ‘We the American People’ pay for it with our hard-earned dollars and freedoms.Trump pulled back the curtain; the Washington criminals and contrived policies have been exposed. If you don’t recognize that America is being destroyed from within by sleazy Washington democRATS, then I’m sorry to tell you that you’re deaf, blind and, I’ll let you figure it out.Don DeMarcoSchenectadyElected officials not earning their payI have heard and read how all the elected officials in state and local government seats have been saying that the minimum wage workers are to get a 70- or 80-cent raise, from $11.10 to $11.80 an hour. Oh, how generous of them and how proud they are of themselves. Simply pathetic. They just gave the legislators a 35% raise, averaging $9,000 raises.Oh, then we pay for their medical and dental; some even get automobiles. Most still have jobs beside politics as lawyers, state or city workers. We, the money tree, must act together and give no more raises, no more perks, no more tax breaks or write-offs.You run for office to help your community. We give you plenty to cover your expenses. It’s not a full-time job and should not be.Meanwhile we were to get a 10%-plus tax break on city taxes for paying for the casino. We are still waiting. It’s time to demand that if the government would like a raise, then we the people of this state demand to set the pay scale for all politicians. We are not getting our money’s worth — no roads, no bridges, tolls are going up, medical costs are out of control, etc. They give you 80 cents and take $8,000 for themselves. You need to demand this change. It’s on you.David KeenanSchenectadyCan’t condemn ad but accept TrumpI have read that a group of conservative mothers have complained about Burger King’s advertisements using the word, “damn.” If these conservative women are supporters of Trump, I would ask them how they feel about Trump’s public use of language to describe how he would grab women, or how he talks about people who do not support him.Without a doubt, he is the most profane man ever elected to national office. If they complain about Burger King and are OK with Trump, the word “hypocrisy” strikes me as an appropriate description.If someone is a conservative Trump supporter, that is certainly their right; if someone objects to the use of “damn” in advertising, that is their right as well. However, you cannot have both conditions without being less than consistent in your beliefs; hence — hypocrisy.Rudy NydeggerBallston SpaMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: No more extensions on vehicle inspectionsFoss: Schenectady Clergy Against Hate brings people togetherHIGH NOTES: PPEs, fighting hunger, backpacks and supplies for kidsEDITORIAL: No chickens in city without strong regsFoss: Schenectady homeless assistance program Street Soldiers dealing with surge in needlast_img read more

Star forward Stephanie Grossi returns from injury for Syracuse

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Two years ago, Syracuse was in the middle of its conference tournament run when captain Stephanie Grossi was presented with an award at a banquet. But a professor did not allow Grossi to miss class to join her team to receive the award, she said, so she arrived at the team hotel late that night and readied herself for what would be a triple overtime thriller the next day.“She was so excited to be there,” said SU head coach Paul Flanagan. “She played the whole game.”Running on almost no rest and playing the equivalency of two games, Grossi scored the game-winning goal, pushing the Orange to the College Hockey American championship. Two years later, the senior captain has led Syracuse in goals each year, but as the season began she suffered an undisclosed injury that caused her to miss two weeks. Last week, Grossi returned to the ice against Northeastern but Syracuse (1-6-1) won only one game in her absence.“She has a twofold effect,” Flanagan said. “On the ice she does what she does, how she carries herself. She is a fabulous student, extremely organized and is so dedicated.”Entering the year, one of Grossi’s goals was to be a leader on-and-off the ice. It helped push Grossi to battle back to full strength after a two-week absence.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“When you’re out you really realize how much it means to be on the ice with your teammates,” Grossi said.Victoria Klimek, who is tied for the team-lead in goals (three), will now have another offensive threat with the return of Grossi. She said Grossi gave the team that extra push before game time.Klimek recalled Grossi’s first game of 2017, when Grossi wrote on her hand “Be relentless,” before the game. She urged the rest of her line mates to do the same. Then, she gathered her line mates together and screamed, “What are we going to be?” The team responded by screaming “Relentless.”To her team Grossi is a special player, someone they can look up too and gravitate toward. And Grossi is all about her team, putting Syracuse ahead of herself in all instances.“If anybody wants to look at how I should act as a Division I student athlete, look at her,” Flanagan said. “She is never me, me, me, she is always about us, us, us.” Comments Published on October 29, 2017 at 10:11 pm Contact Anthony: [email protected]last_img read more
