A couple of tragedies overnight.
One was the Coffeen Street housefire that claimed the life 93 year old Ida Alteri, widow of the late Councilman Steve Alteri, for whom the Fairgrounds pool is named.
Mrs. Alteri was always hospitable to me and was well known in the Flats.
In Oswego County a 31 year old State Trooper named Amanda Anna was killed when her troop car flipped. Trooper Anna had six years on the force and Governor Cuomo says NY is a safer state for her efforts.
Meanwhile, don't forget to take time Monday to remember the Nation's war dead.
