Zeus Theater Needs Renovation

The proud and historical monument⁢ of Schenectady, our beloved Zeus Theater, is‍ undergoing serious decay ⁤due a ⁢lack of maintenance. The seating upholstery is deteriorating with visible stains. The restrooms‌ not only are outdated but​ most of the times are out of ⁢order and are not cleaned regularly. Our cherished‍ memory of laughing,⁣ crying, and being thrilled ⁢within ‌these walls⁢ is being marred by our ​disappointment over its disrepair. The owner ⁤should see to ⁢this issue immediately, or the local‍ government should​ intervene. Our​ children deserve ‍to know the ⁢majesty that ⁢was once The Zeus.

New High School Safety Measures

After reading last week’s report on⁣ WHNY about new safety measures ‍being implemented at Schenectady High Schools, I ⁣felt a‍ sense of ⁢relief. As a parent, nothing is more important than knowing my children‍ our safe when they’re away⁤ from me. The ⁣introduction of school‍ resource officers, visitor management systems, and improved building security systems are much-needed changes ⁣that⁤ would go far ⁤in ensuring our children’s safety. I implore the school board to​ see the ‍full implementation of this project. After all, when it comes to education, ‍safety should be as important⁣ as​ academics.

Loud Train Noises Disturbing Our Peace

Living nearby Erie Boulevard, we have had to deal with the noisy train tracks for years, but⁤ recently, the frequency and intensity of the noise from trains passing in ⁤the night have noticeably increased. Not only‌ does this disrupt our peaceful nights but ‍it’s also ⁢detrimental ‌to the quiet and serene environment our neighbourhood once enjoyed. I’m hoping that⁤ our representatives take action to address this problem, ⁤whether by enforcing noise pollution laws ​or initiating dialogue with the⁢ train company for a more suitable schedule, especially during​ night-time hours.
