LETTER: Volunteers made Little League event a success

To the editor: I had the distinct pleasure of witnessing a very professionally run baseball tournament held at Central Park in Cicero last week. For those who missed it, it was spectacular. Six Little League teams from all over the state of New York, including Colonie, East Meadow, Wappinger Falls, Throgs Neck, Grand Island and Whitestown, competed in the New York State Little League Championship to gain entry to the Mid-Atlantic Division in the 2014 Little League World Series. The event went off without a hitch — well, maybe until the rains on Sunday morning that dampened but didn’t deter the enthusiasm of volunteers set on getting the field in condition to play the championship game.

LETTER: Could the town board consider the old Friendly’s property for new town hall?

To the editor: After reading about the possible relocation of the town offices and police department in the July 2 edition of the Eagle Bulletin (“Manlius Town Board may be considering potential sites for a new town hall,”) the first thought I had was leave the offices where they are on Brooklea Drive and move the police department to the corner of Routes 5 and 257 - the former Friendly’s ice cream location.
