Letters to the Editor for Friday, April 19

first_imgThe plant is currently discharging excessive nitrates onto our sand beds in the effluent that finds its way to the lake. Nitrates area prime source of algae blooms that degrade the water and create problems for users.Our residents drink the water from Lake George as well as many of your readers who come here often to swim, boat, fish or just plain enjoy “the Queen of America Lakes.”Our plant must be sized to accommodate the millions that visit annually and will cost over $22M resulting in an annual debt of $427,000 for our taxpayers.We have been seeking a partnership with the state to fund our plant. Thus far we have received $7.5 million in grants and need another $6 million to $7 million to make it affordable for our small tax base.The state owns the lake. We are the hosts that generate millions in tax dollars to the state coffers from our visitors. A new treatment plant will insure Lake George will be a pristine, popular destination for the next century.Please call your representative and ask the governor to include additional funding in the 2019-20 budget. Thank you!Robert BlaisLake GeorgeThe writer is the mayor of Lake George.More from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s press conference for Sunday, Oct. 18 Lake George needs new treatment plantThe village of Lake George (pop. 990) is under an Order of Consent from state Department of Environmental Conservation to replace our 85-year-old Wastewater Treatment Plant. Curb diseases by getting vaccinatedI would like to express my opinion about the measles outbreak in Rockland County concerning Ultra-Orthodox Jews (Chassidim).They should definitely get their children vaccinated to prevent the spread of disease. If they don’t get vaccinations, they have a good chance of getting measles, rubella, flu, etc. Even though the rabbis say they shouldn’t get the vaccinations,  they should disregard the rabbis, as they don’t know everything.Without vaccinations, diseases can spread from one person to another.Steven GoldbergSchenectadycenter_img Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionIn Niskayuna, pray for dry, warm winterThe front-page story of the April 8 Daily Gazette reports the 2019-2020 school year calendar of the Niskayuna School District does not have snow days built into it.If nothing is done, it’s expected that closings due to snow will cause one or more days of spring recess to be lost to students (and their families) as make-up days in school year 2019-20.To avoid this, the people of Niskayuna need to start fervently praying believing now, in the Name of Jesus, for a supernaturally low-ice, low-snow, and warm Winter 2019-20.If you yourself don’t believe in this praying about the weather stuff (Even most Christians don’t.), then please find people who do (They are called Jesus believers and are easy to find.) and ask them to pray. And it certainly wouldn’t hurt for other school districts around here to do likewise.And don’t worry. That this sort of praying does work has been proven by the several nice winters Jesus has given us recently in answer to people praying for mild winters.Thank you in advance. Please stay safe, happy, and warm this next winter; by praying, and continuing to pray, now.Joel NelsonSchenectadylast_img read more
