Junior Girls to dissolve, acknowledgement offered

Dear Editor, With the dissolution of the V.F.W. Junior Girls occurring at the end of this month they felt it was important to publicly acknowledge a few people that have been part of this organization since its inception in 1966 at the V.F.W. Post 1371, and to share with others as they continue as a patriotic youth group in […]

We must protect, not destroy

Dear Editor, I see the killings in a Georgia Church are similar to the bombings of Oklahoma’s Federal building. Individuals angered by seeing people attacking others who offended their sense of right and wrong encouraged both. Our Government destroying the citizens in Waco, Texas ignited Oklahoma. Georgia was triggered by the numerous attacks, riots, and […]

Those who voted, spoke

Dear Editor, This is the last OACSD budget letter from me until the fall (or beyond). Someone other than me needs to try to convince Mr. Chartrand that the budget passed. He seems to believe I’m wrong about this. A comment in this column last week made the same point. Thank you to that person. […]

Actual voters are the minority

Dear Editor, In our democratic system we get to vote on the expenditure of public money or for the election of candidates for public office. The votes are counted and the will of the majority is enacted. In order for the system to work, as it should, all or nearly all of the eligible voters […]

‘For the Children’

Dear Editor, Could it be that the OACSD Board supporters and members have figured out why the Tioga Citizens for Affordable Education & Excellence was assembled? Here are some of the things the OACSD pulled on the taxpayers this budget season: 1. This year’s 3.72 percent increase in the Tax Levy effectively “wiped out” all […]

We need to stand up for our children

Dear Editor, I am encouraged that people have come forward to take a stand to stick up for our children and Tioga Central School, with efforts to rally support for the revised budget. I believe that those who have softened their position, following the reduced budget proposal, and say they will now chose to support […]
