We must strive for equity. With support from Albany County, state legislators can move forward in creating a district that will both ensure fair pay for ambulance workers while also ensuring rural towns don’t go broke. It is, indeed, a matter of life and death.

We consider this a timely and even courageous sentiment. Our nation is splintered — some might lament that our democracy has broken beyond repair. But not our local librarians. They work away at including everyone in their selections of books and movies and in their activities that include all kids.

We urge those in a position to manage other forests, whether in the United States or Canada or elsewhere in the world, to follow the lead of the Pine Bush Preserve.

That way, we can keep our heroes at home — doing proactive rather than reactive work. And we’ll all breathe easier.
