The track formerly known as "Saratoga Harness" is still a great harness racing track, with high-quality horses and excellent drivers. I hope that the name change will not diminish the public's view of the harness racing.

Ms Durant -- Great review overall. Well done. I'll try to get an email to you because I don't care to fully speak my mind in this very public forum. Some of the humor and attitudes of that era (which I remember well, having been born in 1944) are shockingly unacceptable today - e.g., I recently saw a 50s/60s rerun of the Jack Benny show and heard a joke at which the audience roared with laughter. But stripped of its thin veneer, it was a joke about a baby's deformity. Terrible. However, in other ways that era had far better decorum than today's anything-goes, rapidly-declining society with its obnoxious t-shirts and tv shows such as Jersey-Shore-Swamp-Ax-Dynasty.

I too question the relevance of mentioning Remington Arms or the reason for the naming of Herkimer. Further, if they're going to mention the naming of the area, they should at least get it right. General Nicholas Herkimer was a Revolutionary War hero who was mortally wounded in the Battle of Oriskany.

Oh please, it's high time for way-overweight America to start eating more sensibly. None of the Hostess products listed should be eaten by anyone.

Come on, Gazette, these games are not played on battleships, as your headline states. The games are played on aircraft carriers. Please get these important terms right.

Thank you for writing this powerful report, Carl. It's tragic. Further, Schoharie is an agricultural area where, I'm told, livestock and pets were also lost in the flood.

Thank you, Carl, and thank you, SchenectadyScott. Your comments are right on. Some major changes are needed, but few if any politicos are willing to confront these issues.

Carl, the Lone Ranger music was the finale of Rossini's "William Tell Overture." (Maybe you were just testing us to see if we were paying attention.) And while I agree with your main points, one aspect you've overlooked is that the tickets are too darned expensive. $65 plus tax for a seat in the ampitheater. Many of us would like to attend, but can't affort to do so.
