Teens’ arrests does not reflect on our community

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: Thank you Mr. Emerson for showcasing the pictures of Cazenovia's high school desperadoes on the front page of this week’s Republican; I'll be sure to be on the lookout for them in the village. While you describe our community as "saddened" and "ashamed" by this incident, I would like to say what shames me is that many in this community, including you Mr. Emerson, can't let the families of these boys make their way through what has surely become a nightmare for them without the constant reminder that half the town is judging them, and not very silently.

Dismayed by dire budget situation of Cazenovia district

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: As a former student of the Cazenovia school district, where I was a student from kindergarten through my senior year, it is only after a substantial time away that I realize just how fortunate I was to enjoy an education of the quality I received there. One could easily spend an entire editorial on the excellent faculty alone: more than a few figures from Cazenovia High have provided guidance that remains pertinent on a daily basis even now.
