Pols missed the point of student protests

first_imgWhat if the politicians guarded the schools?“Excuse me sir, may I inspect your weapon? You’ll have to remove that bump stock and you are only allowed 40 bullets. Thank you.”I attended the march in Albany on March 24 and was moved by and very proud of the marchers. But the politicians were big on praise for the movement, but soft on substance. The references to a limited number of bullets in a magazine and no bump stocks miss the whole point of a majority of placards saying “No More” and not “Not As Much.”John KolwaiteNiskayunaMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesNiskayuna girls’ cross country wins over BethlehemFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?Puccioni’s two goals help Niskayuna boys’ soccer top Shaker, remain perfectEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidation Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinionlast_img read more

Memorial should honor the triumphs

first_imgGreat public memorials are both a remembrance and a tribute to the triumph of the human spirit. The National Memorial for Peace and Justice, which recently opened in Montgomery, Ala., is a good example. It remembers the thousands of victims of lynching, conveys the horror and injustice, and invokes not only an appropriate reaction and understanding, but does so in a way that is uplifting and inspirational. Like the Vietnam Memorial, it draws people to it and portrays the atrocity while teaching: “never again.”    I’m a supporter of a Holocaust memorial in Niskayuna. I believe it’s appropriate and necessary. But I find the proposed design concept opaque and cold. I think it can be better. I sincerely hope the planners rethink the artistic vision and incorporate elements that also commemorate the triumph of the Jewish people over hate.Melinda PerrinNiskayunaMore from The Daily Gazette:Puccioni’s two goals help Niskayuna boys’ soccer top Shaker, remain perfectFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the census Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinionlast_img read more

Maintenance work halting commuter train service to Kota Station for 10 days

Commuter train services on other routes would operate normally, Anne said.The commuter train operator had coordinated with city-owned bus operator PT Transjakarta to assign more buses to serve routes departing from Manggarai Station that would connect commuters to various Transjakarta corridors.Anne said PT KCI advised all service users to adjust their travel schedules before the operational restrictions start.Updates on commuter trips can be accessed through the operator’s official Twitter account @commuterline, Instagram @commuterline, Facebook commuterline and call center 021-121.Topics : Commuter trains operating from Bogor, Depok, Cikarang and Bekasi that are usually bound for Kota Station in West Jakarta are to end their journeys at Manggarai Station in South Jakarta before returning to their respective stations of origin from Feb. 13 to 23.State-owned railway operator PT Kereta Api Indonesia (KAI) and commuter line operator PT Kereta Commuter Indonesia (KCI) said the measure was necessary because maintenance work was needed on railroad switches at Gambir Station and Kota Station.“We need a [temporary] operation pattern to ensure safety and anticipate train queues between Cikini Station and Jakarta Kota Station during the maintenance work,” PT KCI spokesperson Anne Purba said in a statement on Tuesday.last_img read more
