My parents and grand parents took me to Hoffman's in the 1960's when I was just a little boy. I do hope that Six Flags Great Escape or perhaps some private investors end up buying Hoffman's from the Hoffman family. It's a local treasure.

That is 26,000 assaults and 3,374 reported rapes that never should have happened. What is wrong with this picture and why isn't the VA doing anything about it? What are our nations military leaders doing about it? Can't you guys keep it under control? This kind of behavior is un-called for and is an act of self degradation and betrayel to your fellow soldiers - female soldiers. It's a black spot on our nations military that needs to be cleaned up and dealt with fast. Has all discipline gone out the window? Sure looks like it.

It doesn't surprise me that high tax rates will be keeping top-tier casinos away from the region. New York state ranks highest in state and local taxes followed by New Jersey,Connecticut, California and Wisconsin. And though New York "only" takes 80 percent of the revenue while giving just 20 percent to local community budgets..that 20 percent represent a "more significant sum of money" to much smaller county budgets.. Nothing like understating the greed of the New York state government.

I grew up in Scotia and it is sad to see this kind of thing happening in my home town. Glad there was a security camera on premisis. I hope the shop owner wins his case against the police departments and his shop remains open for business. I do not have anything good to say about the police departments involved..

Get off your high and mighty pedestal NYRA! Did anyone at the NYRA even read the logo on the truck before they signed the contract? And what about the 30 days written notice that either party has to give in order to terminate the contract? The owners offered to change the name of the logo and the NYRA still said "get your truck out of here". I think that was reasonable of the owners to attempt to correct the sitiuation - but very unfair of NYRA to kick them out so abruptly. I'd take the NYRA to court for violating the contract.

Find out the kids names,then track down the parents, then make the parents pay for the damages.. Take them to court. Intalling a camera and recording the activity will help identify the kids and what they are doing. Id consider suing the city of Schenectady for not doing anything about it - negligence! There is no excuse for this bad behavior, except bad parents and bad kids with nothing better to do in the summer. It pathetic.
