first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionSweeney shows he can be bought offRegarding former Congressman John Sweeney defending the Russian banks he is lobbying for because of sanctions placed on the government and businesses supporting the government actions in Crimea, would he feel the same way if he was not getting paid $62,500 per month?Would he lobby or protest out of righteousness, or does this amount of money persuade his consciousness to believe that the Russian bank changed it ways? Did they change due to sanctions?Sanctions placed on the government and businesses of Russia are placed to deter or change policy, and if they are hurting businesses, perhaps the businesses will lobby their own government to change their ways.Bottom line, I might defend the bank if they paid me $62,500 a month. Wouldn’t you? Amazing how easy it is to buy a former American congressman.Larry PhillipsCobleskill Gazette shows bias in terrorist’s deathOn a day when there should have been a banner headline which read “ISIS terrorist Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi Dead,” on Oct. 27, The Gazette chose a headline which read, “Lawmakers back Dyslexia Screenings” instead.Of course, this is nothing new with The Gazette showing its true never-Trump liberal bias. The bias flag flies high over The Gazette.William ThielSchenectadyHonor immigrants, natives with holidaysThe Oct. 14 Gazette reported at length (“More states jettison day paying homage to explorer”) on the Columbus Day holiday becoming increasingly discredited and discontinued. I propose Columbus Day be changed to First Nations Day in honor of the people who lived in each of the 50 states when Europeans first arrived, and their descendants, and that an entirely new Immigrants Day holiday be created.With these changes, we could all enjoy two holidays while honoring those who were here first and those who later arrived (and still do) in search of freedom and opportunity.  While Christopher Columbus remains an important historic figure, the Columbus Day holiday should be abandoned due to the vast evidence that Columbus and his men launched and participated in mass slaughters and genocides.Immigrants Day could be celebrated on the birthday of an Italian immigrant to the United States, perhaps a woman, to soften the blow of discontinuing Columbus Day. Immigrants deserve recognition with a national holiday because most of us are the descendants of immigrants. Immigrants and their descendants have contributed immensely to the success of the United States over the centuries and I am certain we will continue to do so.We should also not forget that many people arrived in North America in chains from Africa and they and their descendants also greatly enrich the United States.  Tom EllisAlbanyUnsafe practices catch up to peopleAt various times during my career at GE, I was responsible for safety on construction and industrial projects.In the photo of Civic Landscaping and Solar Installation workers in the Oct. 24 Gazette (“Solar farm work underway”), two of the three workers on ladders were unsafe.One had one foot on the ladder and one foot on the solar structure. Another had two feet on the ladder but was leaning way over to reach the solar support.I suppose neither worker was injured on that day. The nature of unsafe acts is that doing them over and over increases the chance that you may get hurt.The same applies to standing on a chair or table to reach up high in your home or office. You can do it over and over, but each time, there is a chance that the chair or table could collapse under you.Like the lottery slogan says: Hey, You Never Know.Mike RozdolskiGuilderlandMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?Gov.

first_imgVersailles, In. — The Ripley County Chamber of Commerce has recognized the Ripley County Department of Parks and Recreation as the March Member of the Month!The Ripley County Fair began in 1874, when the Ripley County Agricultural Association, with objectives “to promote and encourage agricultural and mechanical arts, domestic manufacturers, and kindred industries”, purchased twenty acres of land in Osgood.  Now, 145 years later that same land is still used to host the Ripley County 4-H fair, the FARM Club antique farm show, a Fourth of July celebration, horse shows, racing and other civic events.  The oldest structure still standing on the premises is the historic 112-year-old grandstand that was built in 1907.In 1993, the Ripley County Agricultural Association gave the Ripley County Commissioners the Ripley County Fairgrounds.  The Ripley County Park Board was formed as a five member body responsible for the task of upgrading the facility and turning the Fairgrounds into a community park.  A fulltime Park Manager and part-time employees maintain the Park.The Board has managed over a million dollars worth of grant monies, donations, and public funds for the improvement of the grounds and its structures.  Those funds came from sources such as: the Rising Sun Regional Foundation; the Lily Foundation; the Gilmore and Gold Reynolds Foundation; the Build Indiana Fund; the Ripley County Community Foundation; the Ripley County Council; the Ripley County Commissioners, and many local non-profit organizations and individuals who continue to utilize the park.last_img read more
