Pride Month flag flies above Lansing Town Hall

The Lansing Town Board unanimously passed a flag and banner display resolution Wednesday, still in time to honor June as Pride Month.  A flag presented to Town Supervisor Ed LaVigne by Joanne and Deborah Cipolla-Dennis was raised below the American Flag in front of Lansing Town Hall Thursday morning.

"Seeing the Rainbow Flag, a sign of acceptance, love, protection says we care about your experience here.  We notice that you are citizens and that you do need a different kind of leadership and recognition than your heterosexual counterparts," Joanne Cipolla-Dennis told the Town Board before they voted on the resolution.

dearmargaret I was helping my step mom take care of my dad, who has had dementia for about ten years. A few times a week I would take him out for lunch, to a park, to church, to my house, etc. He recently has taken a turn for the worse after a bout with the flu, and she will no longer allow me to take him on outings. He has stability issues, but is not completely bed ridden. This breaks my heart. We both enjoyed this time together, and I don't know how much time he has on this earth. I don't think she's trying to be cruel, but she's tightened control of him and it feels unfair to me. What can I say to her to make her understand how I feel that will convince her to loosen the reigns on him so we can continue to enjoy each other up until the end?
