To: Mark S. Myers... it's too bad your town officials are blind to the fact that there is, indeed, a fine grocery store in Ballston Spa. It makes me laugh right out loud when people snub Aldi's (and I hear it all the time)... then make a special trip to Mass. or downstate to Fishkill, NY to shop at Trader Joes. And guess who owns Trader Joes... yup... Aldi's! You'll find some of the same items in Aldi's as you do in Trader Joes... minus the hefty pricing! There's only one advantage of having a Walmart in your town... if you ever need a police officer, you'll know where to find one... Walmart! Here in Glenville, they are there constantly arresting a shopper, or an employee! That store is a disgrace to our lovely town! I feel if I ever want to shop there, I should take an armed body guard with me! No, you definitely do not want a Walmart in Ballston Spa!

If every driver who disobeyed the safety rules and regs of the roads, there wouldn't be any cars on the road anymore! This accident happened in the 1970's... time to put Mr. Ding-A-Ling back to work and make the children happy!

85 years old?? 85?? Where is the DMV in all this? Don't they do regular checking on eyesight, reflexes, etc on older people? I have already told my children that if they feel I am a danger to others driving in my old age, they need to pry the car keys out of my hand!

If it was a hay truck, they had no business being on the Thruway with an "open" load like that! If they "always" hit the height bar, they should know about it and adjust their load. This time it caused someone's life... I hope they, and the administrators of the Thruway system, can sleep nights!

I've said it before, I'll say it again... Truckers, secure your load before you hit the road! And since this happened on the Thruway, perhaps someone should have checked the load BEFORE they were allowed past the toll booth!

If you drive the back roads that meander up north of Utica, you see one beautiful corn field after another. Those tall stately corn stalks stand as straight and high as the Statue of Liberty... a fitting tribute to the good farmers of New York State! Personally I would have voted for the onion because I just love the smell as you drive through the Canastota area, but corn will do.

Another totally unnecessary tabloid story from the Gazette!

I was very touched when I read this article. Leah Johnson is an inspiration to everyone! She's not handicapped... she's determined!!! Bless her forever!

I agree with Fritzdawg... could we please stop with the tabloid news?! I just opened TU's website and there was a headline screaming... should Weiner's pregnant wife leave him?... what?? That's a private matter between the 2 of them. For heaven's sake, leave them alone and stop the madness! We have so much going on in the world and in our own country, state, city, neighborhood that should be reported and not this trash!

To: Renee’ Barchitta... I am one of the few who actually like having the Glendale Nursing Home in my neighborhood (Glenville). 30+ years ago we purchased our home from an elderly woman who was admitted to the nursing home. I used to visit her occasionally and found she was receiving excellent treatment, care, and respect that she deserved. There are many in that home who came from the neighborhood and I'm sure they are glad to still be part of their home community. My daughters Girl Scout troops sang songs to the elderly in the home at Christmastime and were very well received. The only people, in my opinion, you'd find in a private nursing home are those who can AFFORD to be there... what about all the others?? They, too, deserve a decent place to live out their golden years if they can't take care of themselves. Thank you for your letter.
