Forget politics and do what’s right for town

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionRe Nov. 15 letter, “Parties must work together in Nisky”: After reading Chief Louis Moskowitz’s comments regarding the Niskayuna election, I just had to write in. I agree with him 100 percent. I, too, felt that the two Democratic Councilwomen (Denise Murphy-McGraw and Lisa Weber) had no intention of working with the new Republican supervisor. It’s “us” against “her,” and we have the majority. Why not give this young woman (Ms. Syed) a chance? Although I don’t live in Niskayuna, I read about Supervisor Joe Landry’s retaliation against court employees wanting to use a back entrance. I think that’s why he didn’t get elected. He got a little too big for his boots.Try keeping an open mind and focus on doing what’s best for the people of Niskayuna.Lorraine VanDerWerkenRotterdamMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesCar hits garage in Rotterdam Sunday morning; Garage, car burnlast_img read more

Dog found to have ‘low level’ of coronavirus in Hong Kong

first_imgTopics : If confirmed, the dog would be the first case of a pet catching the coronavirus amid a global outbreak that’s now infected more than 82,000 people and claimed more than 2,800 lives.The dog is being quarantined at an animal facility, the Hong Kong government said. The department strongly advised that pets of confirmed virus patients also be put under quarantine. The pet dog of a coronavirus patient in Hong Kong has been found to have a “low level” of the virus, the Hong Kong government said early Friday.The dog tested “weak positive” for the coronavirus, the city’s agricultural and fisheries department said in a statement, without giving further details. Officials will carry out further tests to confirm whether the dog has really been infected with the disease, or if it was a result of environmental contamination of its mouth and nose.Much is still not known about the virus that is spreading around the world after emerging in central China late last year. It is thought to have transferred to humans from bats and has been shown to spread in a number of ways, but the Hong Kong agricultural department said it doesn’t have evidence that pet animals can be infected, or be a source of infection to people.last_img read more
