Our country’s heritage of democracy (rights) being public, corporate and our quality of life shouldn’t be taken for granted.

Remember that 1 percent of the population (combat) veterans endured sacrifices. The commitment of our patriotic duty sustained future freedom.

It will be interesting how school districts react to being allowed to offer some veterans property tax exemptions as municipalities. In 2008, Jefferson County went from the lowest limit each category established in 1986 to the highest due to property evaluations.

Other followed, not all; Ellisburg and the city of Watertown went beyond established limits. People should contact jurisdictions refrainng from exemptions or any increase.
