Grateful for care for husband  at Ellis

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionIt has nearly been two months since my husband experienced symptoms of a stroke. His speech was garbled and he had a headache. Other than that, he had no other symptoms. Within five minutes, we were visiting Ellis Medical Center in Clifton Park. Luckily, we live right in the neighborhood. From the time we spoke to the lovely woman at the front desk and our transfer to Ellis, we were treated with a very efficient staff.The nurse manager assessed my husband and the physician assistant (PA) was not far behind him. Both of these men were very professional and kind. They communicated with the doctor and us as the orders progressed. The neurologist and cardiologist were contacted, and plans were made for a transfer to Ellis Hospital for further observation. There were others in and out to help this all go smoothly, and each one treated my husband with the utmost respect. The guys on the ambulance were kind and reassuring and surely knew what they were doing. We were sent to C6 (Neuro Unit).His RN and his team would be taking care of him throughout the night. They were very thorough and made the both of us feel so comfortable and safe. A new team arrived and we were informed of the tests that would be done. We were kept in the loop. Each person that transported or did the test in the room was most kind and respectful. The PA worked diligently to get results back so Dave could go home that day. All we can say is a big thank you one and all at Ellis Hospital.Cass ZilcoskyDave ZilcoskyClifton ParkMore from The Daily Gazette:Controversial solar project goes before Clifton Park Planning BoardGame 7: Shenendehowa grad and Braves rookie Ian Anderson gets start with World Series spot on the li…High-risk COVID exposure reported in Clifton ParkEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationlast_img read more

Citizens must rise and remake America

first_imgBill Clinton was not a half-bad president, but the process he went through degraded America. Putting Clinton on the stand under oath didn’t make him a better man or benefit America. President Clinton was put into an impossible position by himself, exploited by political rivals. William Jefferson Clinton was Jeffersonian in name only. Presidents Bush and Obama didn’t elevate the office. Bush laid the foundation for the house Obama built — a house divided.Now we have President Trump, a flawed man being torn apart by the “deep state.” The lawyer class in America is the Pharisees of our time. The deep state is everyone — Democrats, Republicans, FBI, CIA — who owns US. The deep state is neither WASP, Catholic, Muslim or Jewish. It is, that is what it is: “IT IS.” The “IT IS” exists to benefit itself. “IT IS” will wrap any flag around itself to survive. “IT IS” is the face of evil that Jesus came to this Earth to free man from. It was the Babylonian Empire, it was The Roman Empire, it is the deep state now — “IT IS” will always be. So far, Jesus’s mission is a failure.If America were to have a “come-to-Jesus” moment, everyone would ‘fess up and do right. Look under your Christmas tree. Maybe it is there.

Good will is not dead in Rotterdam

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionI’m so happy that good will is not dead. For many years my neighbor has cleaned the property for me and I’m grateful. While there was much traffic on my street due to a local fire, much to my amazement one young gentleman parked his car, got out and offered to finish shoveling. When I asked his name, he said “Chris,” which was my dad’s name, and that he owned Cusato’s Pizzeria on Altamont Avenue.While he finished shoveling, I spoke with his wife and daughter who were waiting patiently in the car and thanked them for their patience and Christmas kindness.He absolutely refused any payment and offered to send help if I would just call him and said I reminded him of his “nonna” (grandma).All I could offer were my grateful prayers and “Merry Christmas.” Truly, the spirit of Christmas giving goes on in this young business man of Rotterdam.

Writer doesn’t get what coddling is

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionRe Feb. 25 column, “Stop telling parents not to coddle their children. You wouldn’t like the alternative”: Peter Birkenhead is living in a vacuum.He seems to believe there is no such thing as coddling. Using a seat belt in a car, or a helmet on a bike; that is not coddling. Telling a child to be careful on a swing is not coddling. But telling a child that even though they lost the game that they’re winners — that’s coddling.Telling the child that when he/she fails in school that he/she shouldn’t be held back a grade or shouldn’t graduate — that’s coddling.Permitting a child to have an i-phone — that’s coddling. Allowing a child to play video games for hours — that’s coddling. Not addressing school problems or misbehavior — that’s coddling. Giving a child medication when he or she misbehaves — that’s coddling. Not sitting down to dinner as a family without the TV on — that’s coddling.Should I go on?VIRGINIA GRANEYGlenvilleMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?last_img read more

Listen to Peterson’s views before judging

first_imgYour April 27 editorial, “Allow free speech on campus,” encourages Skidmore College to allow Jordan Peterson to speak on campus. I applaud your position. However, you also say: “Many understandably find Peterson’s views reprehensible.” You note that one student claims “his thinly veiled racism, classism, misogyny and blatant trans phobia have no place at Skidmore College.”Neither your editor nor the student cites examples of Peterson’s “reprehensible” opinions. Both should read Peterson’s book “12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos.”   Two of his rules are: “Tell the truth —  or, at least don’t lie,” and “Assume that the person you are listening to might know something you don’t.” If our citizenry were to adhere to just these rules, our culture would be strengthened.Wouldn’t we all benefit from reasoned critiques of views with which we disagree instead of the current trend of trashing people? I realize that many politicians and much of our media resort to trashing rather than reasoning, but that can be changed by us.Richard EvansBurnt HillsMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homes Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinionlast_img read more
