Shame on you for your recent front page headline

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: Your headline and lead-in to the Amy Bradstreet story was truly awful, laid out to be sensational and even exciting.

CCH thanks community for a great Taste of Cazenovia event

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: The Cazenovia Children’s House Board of Directors and staff would like to express heartfelt appreciation to the board of directors at Willow Bank Yacht Club for presenting this year's Taste of Cazenovia.

Cazenovia town and village officials had no part in East Lake Road tree cuttings

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: We would like to correct the misunderstandings which appeared in two recent letters to the Republican. John Romig and Frolic Taylor believe that the Town of Cazenovia cut down the trees near Owera Vineyards a few weeks ago.

Supervisor does not make a compelling case for appointed town clerk

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: I read the justification for making the town of Dewitt clerk appointed as opposed to elected. Ed Michalenko does not make a compelling case for appointing a clerk answerable to him.

DeWitt councilman: Taking away the people’s right to elect their own representative to serve as town clerk is just wrong

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: The truth about the DeWitt town clerk is that the position is required by law and the fact that the current administration believes they are more capable of choosing the person to fill the position rather than allowing the taxpayers to elect the town clerk is just arrogant. The town clerk has been an independently elected official that is accountable to the taxpayers and should remain an independent position.

DeWitt supervisor explains reasons to make town clerk position appointed

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: DeWitt is holding a referendum on Tuesday, Sept. 23. Residents are asked to vote at town hall between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Only one polling place will be open in order to minimize expenses. A town clerk’s duties are administrative and should not be political. Town clerks should be appointed just like department heads: police chief, comptroller, assessor, etc. City and village clerks are appointed and serve the same functions. If appointment is so dangerous, why don’t we see chaos emanating from cities and villages?

Overflowing clothes recycle bin welcomes visitors to quaint Cazenovia

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: Regardless if it is a village or town issue, I don't see what all the fuss is about regarding the south end of the lake zoning issues, when we have a beautiful over flowing clothes and household goods recycle bin welcoming all visitors to our charming village and town.

LETTER: Changing DeWitt Town Clerk position to appointed is not in the best interest of the town

To the editor: Town of DeWitt residents will be voting on Sept. 23 on a referendum to change the town clerk position from elected to an appointed political patronage position.

LETTER: Fifth Gus Macker tournament a success

Well, we just wrapped up our fifth year of the Gus Macker 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament held at Drivers Village, and what a weekend it was. The weather cooperated beautifully and that provided us with extremely large crowds which included at times three generations of family members. We also maintained a quality event for the 178 four-person teams that registered to participate. Our volunteers, 145 strong, the backbone of this event, put in almost 1,500 hours. These highly enthusiastic volunteers allow us to continue the Friends of the CanTeen’s ultimate mission of raising much needed funds to operate the CanTeen teen center.

Thanks from Special Olympians for fundraiser help

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: Thank you for the nice article you wrote about our “Cops on Tops” fundraiser for Special Olympics. I want to thank the police officers for taking time to help us.

Horrified by clear cutting of trees on East Lake Road

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: I drive up and down East Lake Road quite frequently and last week was horrified upon seeing the ruthless clear cutting of dozens of mature trees along the winery frontage.

Police chief proud of ‘Cops on Top’ fundraiser success

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: I would like to take this opportunity to express just how proud I am of my officers and the community in which we serve. The recent fundraiser for “Cops on Top” at Dunkin Donuts was a heartwarming success for not only Special Olympics but for the community as well, a community that the police department is a part of. That is the attitude that all of the Cazenovia police officers take whether they live in the Cazenovia area or not, that this is their community too.

Thanks to community from Friends of the library

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: The Board of the Friends of the Cazenovia Public Library would like to thank everyone involved in our annual book sale for making this year’s sale (July 26 and 27) such a huge success.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
