BTW, Where does Type A Lady's much touted graffiti 'remediation' project stand.

Why is Gillan so indifferent? Couldn't he come up with a low key comment that at least recognizes the need of a neighborhood. I think his 'no comment' stance needs investigating.

Will it use universal design features.

Could parking areas be covered with solar panels. This generates more sellable energy while lessening snow removal efforts

The ''RIGHT TO RISK'' clauses in the 1983 Rehabilitation Act, and the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act should be at play here. Residual limb length plays a large part in residual function and balance. I wonder if a properly worded waiver would protect the operator.

We need to remember; although we have the ''right to risk,'' it only applies to ourselves as individuals, not others around us. One needs to take into account unintended projectiles their risk might create.

There was a time in Rotterdam when residents knew it was 3:30PM. The Mica, Maqua, and Schenectady Chemical plants all chose this time to 'off gas' their buildings. We could all smell the admixture. This is a great repurposing of one of those buildings.

If the residential makeup of this building is as diverse as has been reported, I hope the more cognitively or emotionally challenged residents are receiving the attention and protection they need to be safe.

Story captures the essence of TULLOCKS STATION and family perfectly. I've needed, and enjoyed lots of supports in my life, but none was ever given as directly, openly, and seemingly as easily as the counsel and services i received from ALL of TULLOCK'S staff

Enjoy your tomatoes man.....and that CORVAIR

This seems like an ultimately humane way to address the 'smoker' issue on lower State St. Now public and private agencies need to provide programs that engage ALL the residents of 845 Broadway in productive SAFE activities.

daily, you are quite correct. many do rise above a variety of circumstances to become competent and productive. i would still harbor some worry if they suspected i publicly called their parents 'animals.'

i recommend you check local health care hiring practices to get a sense of the demographic seeking and getting entry level jobs. remember, dietary aids, c.n.a's and l.p.n's are the positions with the most patient contact AND least ultimate responsibility.

good health to u and yours
