A public hearing is scheduled for Dec. 29 on cutting the number of representatives to the county legislature from 39 to 29; the reduction could lead to less diversity and less chance of coalitions that don't conform to strict party-line politics.

Letters to the Editor

To the Editor:

Our family is heartbroken over the death of Dan Leone; he was a very special man who cared about people. He did his best to give quality food at his Pizza Villa.

He went the extra mile; never too busy to stop and talk to his clientele. We know that we are not alone in feeling this way.

To the Editor:

Altamont Community Tradition would like to thank everyone who made the 13th Annual Victorian Holiday Celebration a huge success.  We are extremely thankful to our gracious house hosts as they opened their historic homes as part of this year’s Holiday House Tour.

To the Editor:

What a difference a year makes. Last year, as I made a celebratory holiday dinner at my home for my staff, I received a call that changed my life. My dental practice was on fire and, as I raced to the office from my home, I could see the sky lit with flames shooting from the roof.

The Guilderland School Board met last week to discuss the results of a summit held a month earlier.  Board members spent considerable time interpreting the record sheets of ideas garnered from summit volunteers who provided solutions for the revenue shortages experienced by the school in the last several years.

To the Editor:
