Participate in vote for sale of park land

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion Regarding the upcoming land sale vote in Clifton Park: I will be voting yes on Proposal #1 on Dec. 5 and hope that everyone else will do the same.If this proposal is approved, the 37 acres (increased from 34) in the heart of the Shenendehowa school district will be preserved as a “central park.” The sale of this property will benefit generations to come.Earlier this year, residents of the school district spoke with a strong voice when voting down the sale to a private developer. That was first step to preserving this property. Now to transfer ownership and create a park, we need to approve the sale from the school district to the town of Clifton Park.Please help plan for a balanced future for the community.

Get informed about Ballston sewer plan

first_imgThe town of Ballston is embarking on a potential project to bring sanitary sewers to the “hamlet.” Timing for the project is linked to the Ballston Lake Sewer Project that is already approved and under detailed planning.Residential and commercial property owners in the district will vote on April 18 whether to install the sewers. There are many factors involved in the decision making, including the environment, health, viability of hamlet businesses, financing, and operating the system. It’s important for voters to become fully informed of all the relevant factors so as to make the best decision. Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion Existing failed septic systems have, and still are affecting, the land, water table and waterways. Repair costs increase with time, and businesses are significantly burdened to handle sanitary waste in the Route 50 corridor.This doesn’t come free. The Sewer Committee continues to pursue minimizing the total cost, including obtaining grants, low-interest loans and encouraging contractors to discount multiple installations. Forty years ago, a similar project with 85 percent grants was defeated. That level of grants is not available today. While cost is a major factor, there are planned allowances for extreme situations, like financial hardship, installation cost based on distance from sewer mains and age of recently established septic systems. These will be in the required town law.Information on upcoming public sessions, including Wednesday’s (March 14) is available at www.ballstonsewers.org or by calling the town of Ballston, 518-885-8502.After learning the facts, I’m certain the proposed sewer district is an investment in the future of our community. I urge everyone to become fully informed.Al Pirigyi Sr.Burnt HillsMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesPolice: Schenectady woman tried to take car in Clifton Park hours after arrest, release in prior the…EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censuslast_img read more

Peru’s Fujimori hospitalized for neurological and lung issues

first_imgTopics : Aguinaga said he had “told [the clinic’s doctors] to have the neurologist take a look” at Fujimori, who would also undergo a lung scan.Although the former leader’s lung “is not ventilating perfectly, it is under control,” said Aguinaga.Prison doctors realized Sunday night that Fujimori was not breathing well, so they gave him oxygen. Shortly thereafter, they decided he should be transferred to the clinic.A source close to the family told AFP earlier that Fujimori had been transferred to the clinic for neurological issues, facial paralysis and an increase in blood pressure. “He is under observation in [the clinic’s] intermediate care unit,” where he has been hospitalized several times in previous years, the source said.Fujimori, who was in office from 1990-2000, was pardoned in December 2017 on humanitarian grounds by then-president Pedro Pablo Kuczynski.Critics said the move was in exchange for Fujimori’s son helping Kuczynski avoid impeachment.The former president, who is of Japanese descent, has been held at a police base east of Lima since the pardon was revoked by a Peruvian court in October 2018.Fujimori’s last public statement was made five days ago, expressing regret that his daughter — 44-year-old opposition leader Keiko — had been sentenced to 15 months in prison for corruption charges.center_img Peru’s jailed ex-president Alberto Fujimori was hospitalized Monday in Lima after suffering neurological and lung problems, his family doctor told AFP.Fujimori, 81, is serving a 25-year jail sentence for ordering two massacres by death squads in 1991 and 1992.”[The former president] is under evaluation,” said his doctor, Alejandro Aguinaga, after visiting Fujimori in the Peruvian-Japanese Centennial Clinic.last_img read more
