To the Editor:

Last Friday evening, the Guilderland Lady Dutch basketball team ended its season with a loss to Shaker in an exhilarating a game that wasn’t decided until the last few minutes of play. The real thrill to me, however, is that this was a milestone many did not think could be achieved just a few short years ago.

To the Editor:

The date and time for the Fifth Annual Smith’s Tavern Poet Laureate Contest has been set: Sunday, April 27, starting at 12:30 p.m. Regional poets can start tightening up the lines of their finest odes and sonnets to compete for cash prizes at the tavern.

To the Editor:

We have lived in the town of Knox for almost 24 years.  We moved into our home on Memorial Day weekend, 1990.

To the Editor:

Saturday afternoon, family, friends, and supporters came together as not just a community but as a family, if only for the afternoon, for Ken Fortuin.  While the fund-raiser's time was scheduled from 1 to 5 p.m., people began arriving before one and continued to arrive right up until almost five. 

To the Editor:

I am a PWS (person who stutters) and I would quickly like to comment on your Feb. 20 letter to the editor, “Help for teens who stutter is as close as your library,” about the resources of the not-for-profit Stuttering Foundation.

To the Editor:

We cannot begin to express how much the outpouring of love and support from our friends and neighbors has meant to us, and we are humbled by your overwhelming generosity.

To the Editor:

I am appalled at what I have witnessed for seven years.

To the Editor:

We are writing to encourage parents and loved ones of children in the Berne-Knox-Westerlo School District, or any school district really, to consider volunteering with one of the many wonderful organizations that enhance the learning opportunities our children get at school and in the community.

To the Editor:

Stuttering is a frustrating and embarrassing problem for millions of people, but it can be especially tough on teenagers.  Help is available at most public libraries in the form of a DVD. Some libraries have an older video format.

To the Editor:

We viewed with some disappointment the cover photo in the Jan. 23 edition, as well as some photos on the sports pages, highlighting school-sponsored wrestling activity.  As evidenced in the pictures, none of the athletes were wearing a protective mouth guard.

To the Editor:

The Berne-Knox-Westerlo Little League will be holding its second annual fund-raiser party on Feb. 22 at the Maple Inn in East Berne from 8 a.m. to noon.

To the Editor:

I wonder if you still have the poem my father wrote about the men who drive the snowplows. Maybe you could put it in the next Enterprise.

I think about the drivers all the time and how dedicated and hardworking they are.

 

The Men Who Run the Snowplows

 

To the Editor:

We are writing about a recent report of a cost-saving measure that would cost Berne-Knox-Westerlo Schools Building and Maintenance Supervisor Pete Shunney his job. 

To the Editor:

I wish to express our appreciation to the village of Altamont highway crew for the long day of work on Tuesday, Feb. 18, that resulted in the removal of snow banks on Maple Avenue and Main Street.
