Mrobarge, you must just look bad, I service machinery and get let into schools all the time, the only problem I ever had getting in was when school was out of session and I was wearing a T shirt advertising beer. They made me go put my long sleeve work shirt on in August because it said beer on my T, no students in the building though. Oh and I bring a big ole bag of tools in that an M1A1 tank would fit in and it has never been searched on the way IN, only out!

Tax Tax Tax, New York is King at taxing everything but big business. Oh if you tax big business it will move out of state costing jobs. So lets tax even out of state businesses but not pay them to collect NY taxes just like NY doesn't pay NY business to collect taxes for the state. How about we try telling those idiots in Albany to stop throwing money at useless programs and crazy pensions or look for a job out of state. I ran a small business and the NYS tax dept was a nightmare to deal with, unreliable information from them but always had both hands out looking for more money. Maybe I'll move out of state and spend my money in another state that has half the taxes and no wannabe King for governor!

I would have been very surprised if such a large complex machine as the new press fired up without a glitch, some will complain, only those who always complain, but not for long. The TU made a huge investment not only in their paper but for print newspapers all over. I wish them luck along with the Gazette, they will need it.

Hmm, I guess living in the county and voluteering for 3 years and having the business degree to run things doesn't matter. However if you are a supporter and don't like who is appointed it is not unjust to stop suporrting the animals who have no say, just a need. Go figure! If dogs read the paper i bet Busy Bones would be the favorite snack to chew on, Politics aside of course.

Only 18.1% of the resedent households of NY own a gun? The study must have only asked 3 people living on Long Island. I don't think I know anyonyone in my entire town that doesn't have at least 2 guns in the home.

There were no strippers at the party, they were dancers. I am sure those boys have seen more scantily clad girls poolside. If anything this is bragging rights and a memory for life, I doubt they will become mass murders because of the pain suffered at the party. They are 16 and can drive a 4000 lb death machine but can't see a thong, sorta like coming back from 2 years in combat but not being able to buy a beer!

John Angilletta has it right about the canal system and politics. The first time we saw there was a major problem a few years ago the moveable dams were not pulled because a "navagable pool" had to be maintained and unfortunatly that navagable pool wound up being Fonda. Anyone who grew up on the river could do a better job than all of Wanna be Pres Andrews cronies. Heavy rain, start pulling gates down stream and go upstream as far as needed. The few boats lost will be far less than the lost homes and property damage avoided.

Oh darn it, I was just thinking about getting together with my neighbors and putting a chain across the Hudson.

I sure hope if that DEC officer ever has need for a fire department that he is more than grateful that they don't charge for their services by sending the fire department a nice donation.
