Washington County supervisors make right call to sell struggling nursing home

Bravos to Washington County supervisors for moving forward with plans to sell the Pleasant Valley nursing home. The county-run facility is hemorrhaging money and the quicker it gets out of the business, the better.

Parents’ judgment was lacking for party

Boos to the parents who hired strippers for their 16-year-old teenager’s surprise birthday party at a local bowling alley. Charges may still be forthcoming, but the entertainment selection showed a total lack and of judgment and character by the parents. The parents of the other teens who were invited have every right to be outraged.

Districts take step toward consolidation

Bravos to school districts in Argyle, Cambridge, Fort Ann, Granville, Hartford, Hudson Falls and Salem for taking part in a study of their financial futures to see how they can work together to share services and lower costs to taxpayers. More and more smaller school districts will need to do this in the future. This is a great first step.

School forum hopes to educate tax base

Bravos to Queensbury school officials for again reaching out to residents for their input on what to do about crushing government mandates that are being pushed on schools. Many local schools have been proactive in recent years in explaining their budget problems to residents. This latest forum in Queensbury is another step to educate taxpayers about the hurdles schools face. We hope Queensbury residents take advantage of the forum and take part. It is scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 28, from 7 to 8:15 p.m.

Glens Falls swimmer qualifies for state championships

Bravos to Glens Falls eighth-grader Mia Cote for qualifying for the New York State swimming championships this past weekend. Precious few swimmers ever qualify for the state meet in their high school careers, so for Cote to do it before she has even entered high school is really quite amazing.

Reader bravo: Businesses recognize veterans

Bravos to all those local businesses who recognized veterans with generous offers this past Sunday and Monday.

People give help to Sandy victims

Bravos to all those local organizations, groups and individuals that have stepped up to raise money and help out downstate victims of Sandy. It once again shows the incredible heart and soul our communities have.

General Electric reports dredging project is ahead of schedule

Bravos to General Electric for the progress it has made in the Hudson River dredging project. The company dredged almost twice as much material this year as it did in 2011. No matter how you feel about the project, everyone hopes it gets done as quickly as possible. It is good to see it is ahead of schedule.
