A story I wish I didn't read or see. How heartbreaking.

Thank you for taking the time (and the money) to try something new in our area. Scotia needs some revitalization so your efforts are appreciated. I look forward to visiting your restaurant and trying one of those eggnog drinks very soon (and, of course, the Peking Duck).

It is my understanding that Mr. Drue had several traffic violations prior to this accident including revocation of his license. It is apparent that Mr. Drue did not understand the consequences of his previous run-ins with the law or laws of safe driving. As a result, put this guy in prison and throw away the key. He is not fit for society. Let him sit in prison for the next 20 + years and think about how his selfish actions were that took the lives of two beautiful young people and affected their families forever. I know this sounds harsh but I have NO tolerance for drinking and driving--this is why (loss of innocent lives). Not only is it illegal to drink and drive, but it is about as selfish as one can be, and illustrates how unbelievably stupid people are who do it--they must have the cognitive ability of a 4 year old. They took a life, now their life should be taken away (legally, by going to prison for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately NYS does not have the death penalty).
I am beyond disgusted that this human being even exists in our society.

Just because you decide to live in a development does not mean you lose your freedom of speech. As you read from the article, the homeowner's association is very discriminatory in regard to what signs it allows. It does allow "some" but not others. In addition, the homeowner's association makes no specification about political signs in their bylaws.
Needless to say, I will write down the name Hudson Pointe and make sure I never live there. Their attorney sounds like he needs a brush up on the law as well, so I will write his name down as well.
P.S. To the owners of the home--thank you for bringing this lawsuit as you are representing each and every one of us whose Constitutional rights have been infringed upon at one time or another. Please do not give up!!!

ROBBUMP: Well....I have to share this. I wrote this editorial and then afterwards, went out to the store. Didn't three teenagers walk right out in front of my car, while I was driving at the intersection of Balltown and Nott. They were not crossing at a crosswalk and I saw two of them look at me and decided to walk right out in front of my moving car, regardless. They did not care. They expected me to slam on the brakes and I did. Perhaps we can conclude that some people are downright negligent with their bodies or lack basic intelligence whether they drive a car or walk.

You know, if you look at statistics, it is the driver who kills the pedestrian and normally the driver is in the wrong. I don't hear of too many people jumping in front of cars these days! Do you think we live in a perfect world where all drivers obey the law? Many drivers rush through red lights, speed, drive under the influence, etc., and truly do not care that they are breaking the law. Those are the idiots I am worried about hitting pedestrians, I don't care where they are trying to cross. The pedestrians are not the issue (assuming they are vigilant when crossing); it is the drivers who are the maniacs. As we have read all too often, many pedestrians cross the street in total conformance with the law, and are killed by some careless, selfish and negligent driver.

I, too, am glad he is off the street and that justice was served. Too many times police officers get special treatment and their egos elevate to the point of misusing the power that is inherent in their position and consequently think they are above the law. This "character" is a real piece of work and should be in jail for more than one year and 15 days, that is for sure. I think it is obvious that there are some real issues that need to be addressed before he is released back into society. For one thing, he needs to be reminded that this is not the Wild West. We are a civilized society; one that he apparently has difficulty fitting into.

They have lost me as a customer! They drew many new customers in with the gas promotion and now having accomplished this increase in customer base, they are changing the rules (and at a time when customers need it most).
Well I, too, can change my mind at a whim, just like Price Chopper did; I am off to Shop Rite in Nisky to get my groceries.
I am very surprised that Price Chopper does not realize that they are operating in a very competitive environment. Irritating the customer is not a wise approach when other shopping choices are available.
And the Golub Corporation is supposed to be known for being socially responsible in our community????
