To the Editor:

What a difference a year makes. Last year, as I made a celebratory holiday dinner at my home for my staff, I received a call that changed my life. My dental practice was on fire and, as I raced to the office from my home, I could see the sky lit with flames shooting from the roof.

The Guilderland School Board met last week to discuss the results of a summit held a month earlier.  Board members spent considerable time interpreting the record sheets of ideas garnered from summit volunteers who provided solutions for the revenue shortages experienced by the school in the last several years.

As the year of 2014 draws to a close, the Women's Auxiliary to the Knox Fire Department wants to thank everyone who supported us in all of our community events throughout the year.

We wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, hoping that 2015 will be a good year for all.

Torure, hurting, others, is a subject most of us would like to turn away from. Nevertheless, some of us (we ourselves?) find descriptions and discussions of inflicting pain interesting or even exciting.

We see it in our kids — early on. Kinds are cruel. They will hurt their siblings, playmates, pets, even their parents.
