Letters to the Editor for Tuesday, Nov. 26

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionRegulate location of stores selling CBDThe Nov. 20 Gazette article on the proposed CBD oil store in Niskayuna should raise some real concerns. The article pointed out that the difference between hemp and marijuana is the percentage of THC.Ms. Sosnow articulated all the concerns every parent should have regarding this shop being so close to the high school. You can be sure that when the governor gets recreational marijuana legalized in New York state that these CBD distributors will be selling it.Unfortunately most of the towns in Schenectady County do not have regulations where these CBD or marijuana shops can be located. The only town in the Capital District that does is Clifton Park.I brought this issue to the Rotterdam Town Board earlier this year, but they have taken no action to control these shops. These shops have no place near schools, parks or any place young children are. CBD by any other name, is still marijuana.Robert J. GodlewskiSchenectadySupport moratorium on D’burg solar sitesAt the Nov. 14 Duanesburg Town Board meeting, Supervisor Rodger Tidball provided residents with an opportunity to protect their property values when he announced the possibility of a six-month moratorium on utility-scale solar power plants.I have been requesting this assistance since July, when inadequacies in the town of Duanesburg solar law became apparent during the planning review of two 5 MW solar plants to be sited at 13590 Duanesburg Road.This site is less than one mile from a third approved solar facility. If all three power plants are built, my home will be adjacent to 75 acres of solar panels for the next 30 years.Other residents need to be aware that our solar laws do not prohibit this density of solar development.The best way to protect your investment in Duanesburg is to attend the Town Board meeting on Dec. 12. We must demand that the town enact the moratorium so that stronger solar laws can be written that will protect our property values. Join the Facebook group Duanesburg Neighbors to keep informed.Lynne BruningDuanesburgFind better ways to help cities in needGloversville residents should be indignant again for being ignored by the governor’s $10 million downtown revitalization award, this time to Utica.Gloversville is still trying to dig out of the depression left by the glove industry departure. While its charming old-time downtown architecture survives, roofless buildings remain to be removed, while sewage infrastructure is in need of replacement.Rather than one large, grandiose award, struggling upstate cities would be better served by handing out million-dollar awards to 10 cities, even if annually.It seems the governor is using this pot of gold for political purposes rather than to help the needy.David ChildsJohnstownMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesGov.

Nola drives in 4, Mariners snap Dodgers streak with 6-4 win

first_img FOLLOW US Last Updated: 20th August, 2020 11:26 IST Nola Drives In 4, Mariners Snap Dodgers Streak With 6-4 Win When he was younger and probably a little more stubborn, Seattle’s Taijuan Walker would have struggled to make a major in-game adjustment that called for abandoning the original game plan SUBSCRIBE TO US When he was younger and probably a little more stubborn, Seattle’s Taijuan Walker would have struggled to make a major in-game adjustment that called for abandoning the original game plan.With the Los Angeles Dodgers sitting on Walker’s fastball on Wednesday night and clubbing it for three early home runs, there had to be a change.“I faced the Dodgers a lot when I was at Arizona and my attack plan was mostly fastball, changeup to them,” Walker said. “But this year I have a curveball now and a pretty good slider, and the confidence I have with them let me be able to go out there and make that adjustment and really trust my pitches.”Walker overcame the early long-ball issues to throw seven strong innings, Austin Nola hit a three-run homer run and had four RBIs, and the Mariners beat Los Angeles 6-4, snapping the Dodgers’ seven-game win streak.Nola had an RBI single in the first inning and added his third home run of the season in the third as the Mariners snapped a seven-game skid. Dylan Moore added a solo home run in the sixth inning.Walker (2-2) was outstanding once he stopped giving up home runs. Max Muncy, Joc Pederson and Cody Bellinger hit solo homers and Walker seemed destined for an early exit.But after Bellinger’s home run in the third inning gave the Dodgers a 3-1 lead, Walker settled down. He found success with his curveball and retired 13 of the final 14 batters he faced. The only batter to reach came on an error.Walker allowed just four hits and struck out eight.“The last time that Taijuan was a Mariner here a few years ago, he couldn’t have made that adjustment mid-game,” Seattle manager Scott Servais said. “He’s learned. He went to some changeups, a lot of curveballs, got the cutter going, and it really slowed things down, slowed them down in the batter’s box.”Justin Turner had an RBI single in the eighth off reliever Anthony Misiewicz. Taylor Williams loaded the bases with two outs in the ninth after walking Mookie Betts, but struck out Corey Seager for his fourth save.Dodgers starter Julio Urías didn’t make it out of the second inning. Urías labored to record five outs and was pulled by manager Dave Roberts with two outs in the second. Seattle tagged reliever Dennis Santana (1-1) for four runs in the third inning, including Nola’s long ball. Seattle sent nine batters to the plate.“He’ll pitch his next turn. Just got to continue to be better,” Roberts said of Urías. “The last three starts, it’s been that first inning he hasn’t really looked sharp. I don’t know if it’s the pregame prep, whether it’s too much early, not enough early to get ready for that first inning. We’ll talk about it, but we’ve got to be ready from pitch one.”EARLY EXITRoberts, Muncy and hitting coach Robert Van Scoyoc were ejected in the sixth inning by home plate umpire Mark Ripperger. Van Scoyoc and Roberts had been barking from the dugout about balls and strikes for much of the game. Van Scoyoc was ejected first, followed by Roberts during Muncy’s at-bat. Muncy had some words for Ripperger and was tossed after striking out.“Robert didn’t agree with a couple of the calls and got run, and for me, I came out to question why would he throw out our guy and then I got tossed,” Roberts said.TRAINER’S ROOMRookie Seattle 1B Evan White was removed from the game in the third inning after fouling a pitch off his left knee. White was down for a few minutes before walking off on his own. X-rays were negative and the team said he was day-to-day.ROSTER MOVESThe Dodgers recalled LHP Victor González ahead of the series against Seattle and optioned RHP Tony Gonsolin. It’s the second stint this season for González, who appeared in one game last month.The Mariners made a flurry of moves, highlighted by designating for assignment struggling DH Daniel Vogelbach, who was hitting just .094. Vogelbach was an All-Star selection a year ago. The Mariners also optioned right-hander Art Warren and outrighted right-hander Bryan Shaw to its alternate training site.REMEMBERING GORTONThe Mariners held a moment of silence before the game for former U.S. Sen. Slade Gorton, who died on Wednesday at 92. Gorton was a huge advocate for baseball in Seattle and had a major hand in the Mariners arrival in 1977 as an expansion franchise after the Pilots left for Milwaukee following the 1969 season. He later helped facilitate the sale of the team to local ownership that kept the team in Seattle in the 1990s.“Probably no single person was as important to the history of Major League Baseball in Seattle and the Mariners as Slade,” Mariners chairman John Stanton said.UP NEXTDodgers: LHP Clayton Kershaw (2-1, 2.65) threw seven innings and allowed one run in his last start against the Angels. Kershaw is 3-0 all-time against Seattle.Mariners: LHP Yusei Kikuchi (0-1, 5.28) is scheduled to return to the rotation after being scratched from his last start due to neck spasms. Kikuchi’s last start came on Aug. 7 when he gave up four runs in 5 2/3 innings against Colorado.Image credits: AP First Published: 20th August, 2020 11:26 IST Associated Press Television News center_img Written By COMMENT LIVE TV WATCH US LIVElast_img read more
