Morgan the best choice for Canton Town Board
To the Editor:
I am writing this letter to urge the Voters of the Town of Canton to consider Michael K. Morgan as the candidate worthy of election to the Town Board this November.
Elect Brett Grandaw as county coroner
To the Editor:
Give Democrats a chance to solve the problems
To the Editor:
In response to the signs around the county, yes I am fed up.
My fed-up-ness is a combination of four things: first, Republican economic policies caused a collapse; second, Republicans tried to cripple Democratic efforts to address the problem; third, Republicans then blamed Democrats for failing; fourth, Republicans plan to dismantle the little good that has been done and go back to the “good old days.”
Some warn against big government, but let’s try some common sense here. The question is not, “Do you prefer big government or small government?”
Not a lot of options
Regarding “Evening Ruined,” I have to say some words in defense of the mother of the children who ruined your evening to “yourself.” First of all, you are in a public place. If you wanted an evening to yourself, the supermarket was the wrong place to go. Not everyone has the option of leaving their kids at home or the option of having a babysitter. The children need to eat and some parents have no other option than to take their children with them.
Re: “Hands off!” Oct. 6-12: So it’s okay to be touched by a man as long as he is under 30? Are you setting two standards? As a professional attractive female, when I walk into a room of men I have not had all your issues, and we deal with all ages. Somewhere along the line you may be opening that door with your vibes or the way you present yourself. As a woman, I can appreciate the fact that you don’t want to be “handled” and you shouldn’t be, but by the same token, how many “young women” under 25 do we have to see hanging all over men. Married or not.

Shawna Cummings, 7, is featured in this photo. On Saturday Oct. 9, the first Shawna's Walk For Wishes was held in Canton. When she was only 2 weeks old, Shawna was diagnosed with a rare metabolic disorder called MCADD. In October of 2008, she was granted a wish by the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central NY. Shawna wanted to "pay it forward" by having a walk-a-thon to raise money. Her walk raised $12,000–enough to grant two children from St. Lawrence County a wish. Photo by Amy Stickles.
