@Donna and Fred Hunter - rugby training is two evenings per week for a few hours at most. There are approximately 15 kids learning the sport with a few mature adults instructing them. They play one home game every now and then which naturally involves an opposition team. The game takes a few hours. The season runs a few months of the year in the spring. These kids all live in Schenectady County. Scotia is in Schenectady County. My husband is the 69 year old coach. If you must walk your dog during the time period you claim this small group is depriving you of, why don't you stop and chat? Perhaps you will learn to enjoy sitting on your bench watching adults give of their free time to youngsters who would rather be learning a new sport than getting into trouble elsewhere.

Shot a person three times point blank? I do not recall how many times a person in Florida shot to death a young man because he presumed the young man was "up to something". Only in America.

Have you emailed the website you included in your remarks to Carl Strock?
I am so saddened by what is happening to the cause of animal rescue in this county. Yesterday I drove by an animal control officer just as she was exiting her official van on McLellan Ave. in Schenectady. A large revolver hung from her belt. Firearms for animal control? Frightening. What happened to tazers? I would rather be hit by a stray tazer than bullet.

Deborah Clayton Trudeau - Maybe it's the name, but my sentiments also. I'll help you hunt down the abusers and dig the ditches deeper - as long as wmarincic promises not to talk politics.

Misdemeanor & heavy fine!! The only way a fine will ever be paid will be by the taxpayers who finance these low-lives in the first place. We also finance the appointed lawyer these pieces of garbage will be assigned. If they get prison time, we have the pleasure of paying for that too. Best to lock them up in cages at Animal Protection in Glenville and leave them there.

zelasko - where are you getting your figures regarding "they return to church"? Do you mean there exists today flocks of young women hungering to become nuns? Knocking on convent doors demanding to be permitted to give up all to serve the church? How about the few non-pedophiles willing to serve a lord, any lord? I haven't seen or read anything about them lately. All I ever see are the the figures that prove that purity does not exist in the church. All I read about is the large number of pedophiles being hidden away by their church and/or being transferred to yet another congregation to practice their craft. The craft of destroying the young lives of those who may attend church. Of the people I knew when I was young who went to church - they no longer do. Including myself. I, at times, get romantic about "it" all. I would like to believe. But, I am a realist and to top it all off, I can no longer trust.

A lovely tribute. I live out in the same area but in Sch'dy county. I read the obit and wondered where in the Town of Florida Mike farmed. Sad that such a good and highly admired man has left us too soon. My condolences to all who admired and loved Mike.

Rob1986 - have you been through Rotterdam Junction to see where the flood damage took place? Less than a dozen of the destroyed homes are anywhere near the river. The rest are at least a half to three quarters of a mile away from the water. This is a case of the state badly neglecting an old ditch know as the Erie Canal that is filled with muck and debris - much of it washed into it from the NYS Thruway and the culverts built by NYS. I do not live in Rotterdam Junction or Pattersonville nor do I know anybody living there. I live in the hills above both and drive through there often. It is absolutely heartbreaking to see what these two little villages and their people have suffered because of neglect and lack of maintenance of state owned land.

anybody who has homeowners or rental insurance automatically has basic liability included as part of their coverage. We have never had a pit bull but have always had dogs. We have also always paid a bit extra to increase our basic liability insurance amount by several hundred thousand dollars more because we own a dog. We've never had to put in a claim because we are responsible and loving dog owners. In my opinion and from what I have seen in the city of Schenectady, the majority of people I see wandering around with pit bulls do not display enough responsibility to own a stuffed animal from a toy store.
Keep up your good work Carl. You know as well as I do, it's not the dogs, it's the people!
