Not All Dog Owners Are Created Equal


Boo-hoo. Mr. Bazzo had to pay for a dog park that he does not use. Well, I have had to pay school taxes for schools that I have never used year after year after year—a little more costly than a dog park.

Why are you lumping all dog owners into one category? Not all dog owners cared if there was a dog park or not. Not all dog owners want to use the dog park. In this crazy world, I am happy for those who wanted it and use it. It is their choice; not yours, not mine.  

What drives me insane are outrageous comments. I have been walking my dog at the track twice a day for more than eight years. I have never seen dogs urinate on the benches or all over the field, nor have I ever (even in the heat of summer) smelled the odor of dog urine. A little rain or snow and it is gone, whether it is dog urine, geese urine, seagull urine or any other animal that my urinates all over the field. There are so many other comments I can make, but I am tired.

I enjoy walking my dog, Laci, who is part of my family. Contrary to what some may believe that a dog or a cat is not part of the family, Laci is part of my family. The track is close to my home and a good place to exercise both my dog and myself.

One more note: Mr. Romanski of the YYSC would rather see dogs take their business elsewhere as was stated in a previous article. “I am an insurance broker. I should not have to pick up dog poop on Saturday and Sunday mornings unless the town wants to pay me.” I guess it is all right with Mr. Romanski if our dog poops as long as he gets paid. I envision him with a little pail and shovel walking around the field picking up all the poop he can find. Are you asking the town to pay you by the pound or by the pail full? I wouldn’t quit your day job if I were you.

In conclusion, I will see all you responsible dog walkers at the track.

A (Burnt) Toast to Love and Marriage, on the Rocks

In its first few moments, sitcom-style comedy “Clever Little Lies” grabs audience attention right away, with one of the most revealing wardrobe changes you’ll ever see on stage. It is done modestly but just provocatively enough to elicit vocal appreciation from amused patrons.

The fast-paced play, starring Richard Kline of TV comedy classic “Three’s ...

Assemblyman Kevin Byrne Looks Back on 2018 Legislative Session

July 17, 2018

There’s an old saying, “Our liberty is never safe when the New York State Legislature is in session.” There’s definitely some truth to that. This past legislative session I successfully fought back against several initiatives that would have added to our state’s crushing tax burden, added excessive regulations on businesses that hurt job creation and chipped away at ...

The Adventures of Superdog

I was always very impressed that my dog could bark on command and come when I called his name, until I read in the newspaper about a dog that saved his owner’s life by calling 9-1-1. Apparently, when his owner had a seizure, the dog pushed a speed-dial button for 9-1-1, barked into the receiver for help, and then opened the door when the responders arrived.

Honestly, though, it’s ...

If You See Something, Say Something

July 11, 2018

I am writing this letter because I see something different with the new Yorktown Town Board. I see an open government instead of a dictatorship with rubber stamps. I see the new Town Board working together for the best interests of the residents in Yorktown.

The auditor suggests in his report to not start a capital project without having the money first. A bad example is the Granite Knolls ...
