LETTER TO THE EDITOR Campaigning at a church is reprehensible To the editor: Two years ago on the Sunday before Election Day, we were dismayed to see political fliers attached to our car and all of the other cars in our church parking lot after Mass. These single-issue flyers were from the national and New York state Right to Life Committees.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR Stirpe a friend to business To the editor: Al Stirpe is a friend of the Central New York business community. When Roberts Office Furniture Concepts Inc. was in need of purchasing new equipment to expand our business and add new employees, Al came forward and offered assistance.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR Miller is reckless with the truth To the editor: While watching [TV], I saw Don Miller’s commercial berating Al Stirpe for raising taxes in Cicero that adversely affected the people in his district. There is not one ounce of truth in the remarks that were approved by Mr. MIller’s campaign. Mr. Miller must really need a job to stoop to such low standards to try to ruin a man’s reputation for a few votes.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR Miller is what an elected official should be To the editor: As a young professional in the community, I have never really paid attention to politics because no candidate ever caught my interest and I thought they were all out for a paycheck. This year though, assembly candidate Don Miller has changed my mind on what an elected official should be.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR Shame on you Don To the editor: Don Miller knows that you can’t campaign on or in Church property. Don Miller allowed the Right to Life party to use his ad for re-election to be put on cars in the church parking lot before all the masses, telling people to re-elect Mr. Miller.

Shooting coyotes in Salina is not the way to solve a problem. The Town of Salina is considering the very real possibility of allowing the local nuisance control person(s) to kill coyotes in the town by gun. This would be done on residential properties, jeopardizing homes and citizens. There is information available and offered by true experts on “coyote issues” refuting the information being given to the Town by local nuisance control people. There is the added cruelty element of killing any animal during breeding season, condemning its young to death by predation, starvation/dehydration and suffering. And who is to say that the alleged “problem coyote” will actually be the target?
