Wonderful events

TO THE EDITOR: I would like to thank everyone who made the Battle of Plattsburgh week such a huge success.

The concerts were wonderful, and the Strand Theatre was the perfect venue.

The parades and re-enactments, food and festivities were all top notch. I especially enjoyed “Tom” singing the Bee Gees.

Can’t wait until next year.




Disturbing photo

TO THE EDITOR: On Monday, Sept. 9, on Channel 5, did anyone notice the horse that was all skin and bones?

Through the day, when they said “Tonight at 6,” they showed the horse and no one was arrested.

Channel 5, shame on you. You could have warned us when you showed the picture, meaning the picture you are about to see could be disturbing. My jaw dropped. I didn’t think it was very professional.




Legislators criticized

TO THE EDITOR: I’ve been reading about how the Franklin County legislators have been questioning Sheriff Kevin Mulverhill about if his deputies have the right to stop vehicles and enforce the laws of New York state, even going so far as to request detailed accounts of their patrol days.

Strange how all this has come about after one of their own was arrested for an alcohol-related offense. Nothing has ever appeared in the news prior to this that I’ve seen in regard to these concerns.

I think what they fail to realize is that if, after that stop, the deputy let him go, knowing he had been drinking, the liability would fall back onto the county if an accident happened. I suppose they would then be questioning Sheriff Mulverhill as to why that happened.
