Indian village

TO THE EDITOR: Dodge Memorial Library is currently displaying Indian villages done by fourth-graders at Northeastern Clinton Central Elementary School in Rouses Point.

This is a wonderful opportunity for our residents to see what a great value we have at our disposal.

Our librarian, Donna, provided research materials, which the students used, along with school materials and their imaginations, to build very realistic Indian villages.

I encourage all to enjoy the display and congratulate the students, teachers and librarian.

It’s time for us to appreciate how lucky we are in our villages, towns and country.

Wibecan fan

TO THE EDITOR: I appreciate Ken Wibecan’s all-too-seldom columns in the Press-Republican.

His writing invites the reader to share in life experiences that invoke both pleasant and challenging reactions. I enjoyed his coverage of the New York City blues scene, as well as his glimpse into history when he and a friend were sent to Washington, D.C., to cover Martin Luther King.

I even sense that he feels his dogs are as special as I feel mine are.

I wish to thank him for writing his recent column, “The Confederate Flag Blues.” In voicing his very personal fears, along with those of his visiting sister, Ken challenges us to be more aware of the symbols we choose and to consider “what they might mean to others.”

Thanks, Ken. Please write more often. You have a lot of fans.




Heartfelt thanks

TO THE EDITOR: I recently lost my daughter to cancer.

I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to her siblings who cared for her in her home. I’ve never seen such devotion. I am so proud of them all.

Also, thanks to other family members, friends, Hospice, doctors, nurses, Price Chopper, donations and food. Thank you.
