No consistency with Trump supporter’s remarks

Dear Editor: I read with amusement Larry Overlan’s letter admonishing Nancy Bloom and Susan Johnson for their “vicious statements” in reference to Donald Trump. He went onto say, “Such awful, unsubstantiated comments do a disservice to our country’s president.” My question for Mr. Overlan is this: where was your outrage when Donald Trump spent five […]

It’s time to wake up and resist

Dear Editor: I was saddened to see that the Ringling Bros. Circus was folding its tents after over 100 years of entertainment across the USA. But I was soon heartened by the fact that a new circus based in Washington, D.C., was emerging. The new owner/ringmaster has promised that his circus will indeed be like […]

Trump critics should apologize for verbal attacks

Dear Editor: Regarding the vicious statements (“President Trump is extremely dangerous and disgusting”) made by Nancy Bloom and echoed by Susan Johnson in the story on the women’s march in the January 19 edition of the Citizen, they should be ashamed of themselves for setting a terrible example for the children of Canton with their […]

Revenue forecasting a collaborative effort

Dear Editor: I would like to comment on something I read in the January 12 Canton Citizen article on the school budget; i.e., that on January 26, the finance director and the Finance Committee will make their recommendation on the revenue for FY18. To clarify how the process works, Canton has a Revenue Forecasting Committee. […]

Food for thought from a different point of view

Editor’s note: The following is in response to a letter by Alice Brown that appeared in last week’s Canton Citizen. Dear Editor: It doesn’t sound like Alice Brown lives in the same United States of America that I do. Our republic’s Constitution calls for an Electoral College in order to count the votes of the […]

Searching for silver linings in post-election America

Dear Editor: I never thought I would see states’ rights as a good thing, since my governor (George Wallace) used it as an excuse to rob people of color of their human rights. But attorneys general Healey and Schneiderman give me hope. So what if Trump puts in an EPA head who wants to destroy the […]

Critic of Trump voters should practice what she preaches

Dear Editor: I’m writing in regards to the December 8 story in the Citizen entitled “Residents, officials take stand against hate.” I find it ironic that Kathleen Howley, who claims to want everyone in Canton to feel safe, just called approximately half of the voters of the U.S. bigots. She says she personally blames Donald […]

Praise for Canton school music program

Dear Editor: There’s sweet music in Canton now. Last Wednesday night I attended a concert at the high school. Having not been too impressed over the years by the music program, I was not sure things had changed. But they have, oh how they have changed. There was such an air of professionalism from both […]

Letter to the Editor: Not another liquor store

Dear Editor: I am writing to voice my surprise about the town’s approval of a very large liquor store in Cobb’s Corner, as reported in the December 1 edition of the Canton Citizen. As the article stated, there are already four places of business that sell wine, beer and/or liquor in Cobb’s Corner. I called the […]

Family touched by community support

Dear Editor: The Staffiere family would like to extend our appreciation to our wonderful family, friends, neighbors, the Legends hockey team, Canton Youth Hockey and Canton Youth Soccer, JFK CAPT, and anonymous donors who have supported our family during this very difficult year with dinners, gift cards, flowers, plants, special gifts, rides to activities for […]
