Soup Kitchen support

TO THE EDITOR: We here at Trinity Community Soup Kitchen would like to publicly acknowledge Rambach’s Bakery and Fudge’s owner April Brown, Day Manager Jamie Bingham and the entire staff for their unending support helping those in need every week at our community meal held at Trinity Episcopal Church in Plattsburgh.

Since 1992, Trinity has provided free meals to our brothers and sisters with the help of businesses like Rambach’s Bakery.

April’s personal commitment to helping the less fortunate is both exemplary and inspiring. Her support extends to those in AA who, four days a week, meet at Trinity. She unselfishly provides delicious breads and pastries for all who attend.

In today’s fast-moving, app-driven multimedia society, she is an example of the difference one person can make in the lives of so many.

Give, volunteer and make a difference. God bless you all.

Common Core

TO THE EDITOR: If the central planners and Progressive bureaucrats get their way, teaching the Constitution to American schoolchildren will be a thing of the past.

Common Core is unacceptable. This top-down, bureaucratic takeover of local schools must be stopped.

Common Core will dumb-down education, collect data on kids and their families and leave American kids behind in the global economy.

Since Washington politicians started running our schools, costs have exploded for taxpayers and kids’ test scores have decreased.

Fulfill dreams

TO THE EDITOR: Do you have a dream?

Of course, you do; everyone does.

Whether it be a firefighter or a Marine, we all have dreams we want to fulfill.

Throughout the hard work you put in and the journey you take to succeed at your dream, you will be told you have no chance of making it.
