Our most sincere thanks to the Altamont Veterans of Foreign Wars Post for hosting the memorial and arranging the military honor guard held in honor of our beloved husband, father, uncle, grandfather Edward Paul Cowley.
Sitting in my college dorm, 250 miles from home, I am astonished (then again, not really) to see our little town of Knox is (yet again) raising the already high taxes, a whopping 3.14 percent, on its citizens.
Last week, all of the property owners in the Guilderland School District received their tax-freeze rebate checks. Ours was a big whopping $56 and was a “reward” for the school board staying under the 2-percent tax cap. But it got us thinking, what is the cost of this check?
