Unions, stay away
As a college student, I was very glad to see the over-priced, poorly stocked P&C replaced with a quality store (Price Chopper) with reasonable prices and great discounts. Unions, please stay away, I like being able to afford my food. You made P&C jack up their prices, leave Chopper alone.
Pep band not to blame
I’d like to respond to “Pep Band Over the Top” (Nov. 10-16). I am both a Clarkson University alumnus and former Pep Band member. I was also at the hockey game in Lake Placid on Oct. 30. I would caution the writer from blaming the Pep Band for behavior exhibited by the general public. The Pep Band was certainly the most visible and audible representation of Clarkson University at the game, but it was not the band creating or participating in vulgar cheers.
