Carl, as a teacher who spent 34 years with 8-12 year olds before retiring on my exorbitant pension, I don't know what to say...

... except, "Thank you." for your years of enjoyment and information. Make good use of your parole time; I'll look forward to the Sunday edition, despite all those ads and flyers. :)

Your columns have been the highlight of my subscription for years.

In over 30 years of service teaching at Shenendehowa, John was by far the most professional and responsible administrator I ever worked for. As the public in Schenectady discovered early, he always had an open door to listen to the concerns of parents and community leaders. He also had time to listen to his staff and teachers. He always knew that "the rubber meets the road" when teachers stand up at the chalkboard and do their job, instructing children. That's what public schools are about.

He deserves this final retirement and rest, and Schenectady should be rightfully proud of having his service during a very difficult period.

I'm pleased to know that some of the faithful in Florida are lighting candles for Carl. I know that many area teachers and Schenectady policemen would be happy to do the same if he were tied to a stake with fagots piled around his feet. :)

Words have meaning.

The headline of this tragic story is terribly unfortunate. "Wilton boy killed by friend..."

The word "killed" in its general sense implies an intent that clearly is no part of this tragedy. I would hope and expect the Daily Gazette to be more careful and less sensational with its headlines.

To scan the Daily Gazette's pages and find the Schenectady School Board, teachers, Monsieur Raucci, Christians and State Senator McDonald's assault on autism on the same page. Ah, had there only been a reference to some malfeasance in the Schenectady Police Department, the day would have been complete.
