Lawrence THE HANDLE, which varies in length according to the height of its user, and in some cases is made by that user to his or her specifications, is like most of the other parts of the tool in that it has a name and thus a character of its own. I call it the snath, as do most of us in the UK, though variations include the snathe, the snaithe, the snead, and the sned.

Eslinger offers fresh perspective To the Editor on Nov. I would like to take this opportunity to endorse Brian T. I first met Brian in August of this year when he attended one of my events.
He stated that he was planning on running for Schuyler County Legislature. I shared with Brian that the greatest way to impact people's lives is to serve them in public office.
Brian is charismatic, engaging, and sincere. He was focused and had a clear message to his constituents. Brian will work to control spending while providing the services your community and residents need to prosper. He is committed to being your advocate in the County Legislature and working closely with your Mayor and Trustees to address the needs of the people of Watkins Glen.
He will put you and your interests first. Brian is a pro-active, outside-the-box thinker who is engaging and not afraid to ask the difficult questions for you. On November 6th, vote Brian T. Eslinger for Schuyler County Legislature for a fresh new perspective in these changing times.
In response to the letter written by Mr.
Barnes a candidate on November 6th to the editor, I say the facts speak for themselves. I do not twist the truth. And, our legislators need to be truthful to our County taxpayers. Even when the truth hurts.
I am amazed at what he has written. Barnes needs to go to www. This is the first budget he helped prepare as a new legislator. This is the year he first took office and refers to. Our fund balance was almost depleted, and we were deemed to be in fiscal distress by the New York State Comptroller.
The County was in excellent shape with a more than reasonable cash surplus. Barnes is the Finance Chairman. He has copies of all the budgets. My letter gave our taxpayers information that needed to be shared before the budget hearing coming up.
I also think that our taxpayers need to know the facts in this case. I painted no picture. New York State Municipal Law does, and it refers to a reasonable cash surplus for the size of the budget.
Barnes, there is no law to prevent it. By law it can only be used in that manner, and it is left up to the discretion of our representatives to do so. I presented only one opinion at the end of my letter -- that some Cash Surplus could be put into the Budget to help our taxpayers have more money to spend and stimulate the economy.
I felt a taxpayer should have a right to give her input to the Legislature. Evidently, my own district legislator felt it necessary to criticize me. He needed just to accept input from a County taxpayer. Barnes used the good old bait-and-switch strategy. If you can not attack the message, attack the messenger.

. "Climate change skepticism" and "climate change denial" refer to denial, dismissal or unwarranted doubt of the scientific consensus on the rate and extent of global warming, its significance, or its connection to human behavior, in whole or in part.
For example, politicians from across the political spectrum support comprehensive tax reform. A carbon-pricing policy would provide the opportunity to reduce taxes on things we want to encourage (such as work and investment) by discouraging things we want less of (greenhouse gas emissions).
