SAFETY MOMENT: Leave yourself an ‘out’ when approaching dangerous situation

At Seneca Meadows we have traffic flow plans and patterns in place along with maps that identify potential “hot zones” where there is a higher potential for dangerous situations. We also train our team to maintain a big picture view when driving. One strategy to accomplish this is – leaving yourself an out.

LETTER: Column about landfill revenue missed points about impact on taxpayers

In Friday’s edition, Josh Durso took a look at some of the important questions surrounding Tuesday’s election for Seneca Falls Town Board. 

The column, however, only told part of the story when it noted using reserves to backfill lost Host Community Agreement funds if Seneca Meadows were to close. This missing part is much less simple for taxpayers. At some point, reserves run out and taxes must be raised. This dim future only comes to fruition if Doug Avery and Dave DeLelys’ are successful in their scheme to reject more than three million dollars in critical annual revenue Seneca Meadows provides to the town. Disastrous tax hikes and dramatic cuts in services are sure to follow.

LETTER: Fox responds to recent op-ed about impact of Seneca Meadows on upcoming elections

Thankfully, Brad Jones is not running for political office in 2021. But Mr. Jones seems to have become the mouthpiece for Responsible Solutions for Seneca Falls and Democratic candidates Avery and Delelys. One might wonder why the Finger Lakes Times and ace investigative reporters, have not traced the money from Responsible Solutions of Seneca Falls like they are attempting to do with Responsible Solutions of New York? Who is paying for all these color, glossy fliers? I guess no investigation is needed, one only needs to drive down Fall Street and NYS Route 5-20 between Seneca Falls and Waterloo to come up with the quick answer. I wonder who owns those properties?

GUEST APPEARANCE: Ithaca mayor responds to gun violence, identifies ways City will act

Recently there have been a cluster of reported gunshots in our city. The investigation is ongoing, but it appears that a couple of extremely irresponsible people engaged in a personal dispute are intent on shooting each other. This is obviously stupid, reckless, and terrifying – and Ithacans deserve to live without the fear or being caught in a crossfire.
