To a heartless dog killer ...

To the editor:

To the person who hit and killed my grandchildren's pet chihuahua on Friday evening, Oct. 19, on Truax Road in Amsterdam. You knew what you hit and you didn't even have the decency or respect to stop. We know who you are and we know you are fully aware of what you did. You are a coward. My two precious grandchildren have broken hearts and our whole family is grieving this loss. In her short life, she brought much joy and happiness to us all. Although this was not a premeditated act on your part, your actions afterward were at the very least heartless.

Carolyn Marino,


The best care anywhere

To the editor:

To the staff at River Ridge Living Center:

We are very grateful for the care and kindness you have given to our father. After living alone, having repeated falls and being hospitalized, we were very fortunate to have him moved into River Ridge. He could no longer care for himself and the staff have supported him in numerous ways. He now goes to the "gym," which is the rehab room for daily exercise. He has activities such as music, art and current events. He has wholesome meals eating with others in a beautiful dining room setting. He has nursing care, physician services, and the ability to attend religious services, and to go on field trips. He has his nails and hair trimmed regularly. He can visit in the sun room gazing out at a decorated patio through the seasons. Friends and family can visit regularly at flexible times and have full access to the place.

The rehab staff are highly trained and experts at what they do to help restore independence and physical mobility.

The staff are highly skilled and the admission process was sensitive to the emotional conflict families feel when having to make this type of decision.

We have the highest respect for Susanne and Paul Guttenberg and for their vision and commitment to quality care.

Our deepest thanks to this dedicated and supportive staff.

Frank Marcellino,

on behalf of the Marcellino family,
