Gifford and Kohout for Village Trustees

Gifford and Kohout for Village Trustee

In the past, we’ve stayed neutral on Village politics but after some serious frustrations with the current mayor and board, it may be time to clean house.  This year when you enter the voting booth to pick between McCain and Obama you’ll also have a chance to vote in two new Village trustees.

While this election won’t solve all the problems in the village these candidates represent a good start.  They both have the respect we like to see towards community volunteers. Andrew Kohout has served on the Village Planning Board and Zoning Board of Appeals. Tom Gifford has been one of our volunteer firemen for over 27 years.

You’ll have a chance to meet and discuss your concerns with these candidates this Monday evening. We’ll be hosting a party at Pytlovany Point for Andrew and Tom and you’re all invited with no required fund raising donation.

When: Monday, September 29th,  6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Where: 32 Sunnyside Rd.
  (corner of Sunnyside and Washington Ave)
Why:  Promote open government and enhance the quality of life for all village residents.

Come enjoy the view overlooking Collins Lake, share a bite to eat, while you meet Tom, Andrew and other invited guests.

Discount Massage Coupon

As time passes, I notice that I’m starting to be one of the older people in the Village of Scotia. One of the ways I found to feel younger is at the Envy Salon at 176 Freemans Bridge Rd.

After suffering a neck pain from a flight back from Germany I found that a deep tissue massage helped get me back in shape. My insurance co-pay for physical therapy is up to $40 so going for a full hour of massage turns out to be a better value.

I’m sure many of you doing fall cleaning and raking could benefit from a theraputic massage.  Envy’s Jamie Cash, LMT has provided VisitScotia readers with discount coupon for services good until the end of October.

$10 off a deep tissue massage

Just print this coupon for $10 off the original price of a 90 minute Deep Tissue Massage or 90 Minute Hot Stone massage. Even if you just want to start with a 60 minute I promise you won’t be sorry.

To make your appointment call Envy Hair Salon at 393-1900.

Election Signs grow in the Village

This years presidential race is sure to bring out many voters but Obama and McCain aren’t the only ones running for office. In the Village of Scotia, two seats on the village board are open for your vote. We also have our own Scotia-Glenville  resident and business owner Jim Buhrmaster running for the U.S. Congress.

The local candidates had agreed to wait until this week to start their blitz on lawns around the village.  For the next seven weeks you can expect signs around every corner.

Turkeys in Scotia

No, I’m not writing about politicians in Village Hall today. While this isn’t a typical experience in the Village of Scotia, this was the view from my home/office this morning. There were another 4 baby turkeys that aren’t shown in the photo.

As more development is done in Glenville off Freemans Bridge Rd, I suspect this will become more common in other village backyards.  This was actually the 4th day in a row the Gooble-Gooble family was looking for acorns and other turkey treats in the morning.
