Use strap to secure purse in your cart

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionI thought I would share my experience while recently grocery shopping at my local market.I was wandering up and down the aisles, when an older gentleman came up to me and politely chastised me for leaving my purse in the child’s seat of the cart and turning my back on it.He suggested that I take the child’s restraint strap and loop it through the handle on my purse. Such a simple thing. And since my purse is very heavy to keep on my shoulder while shopping, this was a great idea.I thanked the gentleman for giving me such a handy tip. This way, no one can walk off with your purse. Since the man was so kind, I thought I would share his idea.Marty ShantyCharlton More from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?Schenectady, Saratoga casinos say reopening has gone well; revenue down 30%last_img read more

Military parade is only to praise Trump

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion I think president Trump’s recent proposal for a military parade in Washington, D.C., is a bad idea. He seems to want to turn the streets of our capital into replicas of the streets of  Moscow or the streets of Pyongyang, North Korea.I concede grudgingly that the vast amount of money we spend on the military may be necessary for our defense, but I’m still somewhat appalled by the fact that we spend more on our military than all of our Western allies put together. However, although our military spending may unfortunately be necessary, I don’t think it’s something we should celebrate with a parade.Deep down however, my objection to a military parade is that it’s clearly a typical self-aggrandizing Trump maneuver. I wouldn’t be surprised if he would like our troops to salute him with a “Heil Trump” as they passed the reviewing stand.John VohrNorthvilleMore from The Daily Gazette:Gov.

Trump wrong about the DACA recipients

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion Is Trump uninformed or just a persistent liar? There is no such thing as new DACA recipients. No person arriving in the country after 2007 can ever qualify for DACA. I am providing this link (www.uscis.gov/archive/consideration-deferred-action-childhood-arrivals-daca#guidelines) from the United States Citizenship and Naturalization Services for all Trump worshipers and Fox News watchers so that they can obtain accurate information about the DACA program. It’s a shame that citizens are being so misinformed by this president. Either he doesn’t know what the program is or he’s lying for political gain to energize his base. It was so inappropriate of him to use the Easter Egg event at the White House to spout his lies and misinformation in the presence of children. It was Trump who ended the DACA program by executive order. It’s so extremely deceitful of him to blame the current status of DACA on the Democrats.Maxine BrisportRotterdamMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusCar hits garage in Rotterdam Sunday morning; Garage, car burnRotterdam convenience store operator feels results of having Stewart’s as new neighborEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homeslast_img read more
