Praise for two Canton citizens


Dear Editor:

Canton is a village that raises good citizens, as per recent events regarding our state police and another involving the dam at Reservoir Pond.

Ryan Sceviour, the state trooper featured in the November 16 edition of the Canton Citizen, was on the wrestling team at CHS coached by Tom Bartosek, as were two of my grandsons. I submit that not only were his parents responsible for his brave act to resist corruption, but Coach Bartosek as well. Those boys are on that mat all alone and what they do must come from within them alone. No better training could they have received than from this now retired chemistry teacher, recently inducted into the National Wrestling Hall of Fame.

I also wish to recognize Ann Macadam for her alertness to incompetent work on the dam at Pleasant Street, resulting in us having to give even more money for the dam’s repair. (Click here to read Ann’s letter.) I am an abutter and have witnessed many stranger things over the last four years. To build a bridge requires some engineering skill, as my father, a P.E. and structural designer, would attest. I appreciate her for having a clear eye to what may be going on concerning our dear Reservoir Pond as well as the Paul Revere construction.

I also appreciate the Zoning Board. I would ask that notices about meetings concerning the pond be sent out on a day that would arrive before the day of the meeting. I received two notices the day after the meeting from two different groups, as I’m sure others did. Yes, the letter of the law was observed, but by mailing it out too late, it was as though the meeting never happened except for those directly involved.
