As always, we are grateful for the outpouring of support from the school district and the greater Liverpool community for helping us move closer toward our goal of awarding a scholarship to every eligible college-bound senior who applies. Thank you!
To the editor: There has been a great deal of concern and upset about Hope, the black Labrador retriever that was found severely underweight in the freezing temperatures of Lysander, and her feline companion, who succumbed to the cold.

To the editor: Congressman John Lewis was right when he recently said that he saw the “the scars and stains of racism” in Rudy Giuliani’s remarks about the President of the United States.
County Legislator Jim Corl Jr. is pleased to see that the Cicero Town Board recently re-appointed Bob Smith as the chair of the planning board.
To the editor: I commend the courage of The Eagle Star-Review to report the Cicero Board of Ethics’ decision that Supervisor Zambrano’s conduct did “constitute a conflict of interest.”
To the editor: This year I attended two budget workshops and two of the town board meetings when the budget was discussed. I once again observed the struggle that the town board faces each year when budget discussions are held.

To the editor: I wish to thank each of the voters of the 129th Assembly District for allowing me to continue to represent you in the New York State Assembly.

To the editor: Assemblyman Al Stirpe has done a lot for the people of our community. Taxes are always a big issue. According the CPA who prepares my family’s taxes, New York State is a great place to live for retirees. The truth is that many middle-income retirees pay little or no state income tax because of our tax laws. Further, many of us 65 and over benefit from the Enhanced STAR Program, a program that reduces our school property tax obligation that Al helped preserve. And lowering property taxes help us all.
To the editor: Each year, on Oct. 3, we observe “Manufacturing Day,” recognizing the crucial role manufacturers play in our economy and providing an opportunity to highlight what’s being done to strengthen this vital industry.
