LETTER TO THE EDITOR
To the editor: To sit in judgment of others requires someone to have special and unique qualities. They need to possess the highest integrity, a strong moral compass, an expert knowledge of the law, an open and objective approach, while at the same time be fair, just and compassionate.

During the first quarter of the 19th century, asters put Baldwinsville on the map. What do you know about this lucrative business?
Nearly a century ago, the 19th Amendment was ratified, granting women in the United States the right to vote. In the years since, we have made a great deal of progress on women’s rights, but there is still much more to do. Women’s Equality Day — August 26 — is an opportunity to not only celebrate the anniversary of the 19th Amendment’s ratification and the strides we have made, but also recommit ourselves to the fight for full equality for women.
There has been a lot of controversy surrounding the governor’s decision to convene a wage board for the purposes of considering increasing the minimum wage for fast food workers to $15 an hour.

Clay’s municipal historian and New York state’s historian have had varied histories. On July 8, John Warren, editor of the New York State History blog, posted the following: “State Historian Bob Weible Stepping Down.” This was a shock to each and every municipal historian in New York state, including here in Clay.
In 1852, activists gathered in Syracuse to fight for equality at the third national Women’s Rights Convention. New York has remained at the forefront of the women’s rights movement ever since, but, despite significant gains, many women still lack full equality. On Aug. 26, I hope you’ll join me in observing Women’s Equality Day, which reminds us not only of the strides we have taken in securing full and equal rights for women but also of the importance of continuing the fight.
