Dunno-I have voted NO for 15 years in BHBL!!!!. That what happens when you have these votes on a Tuesday in May. Every employee that works with the district shows up to vote yes along with their family members.

One thing the state has not done is to raise the monetary threshold of damage, $1000.00, which requires an accident report be filed. With the costs of repairs to today's vehicles the statute needs to be changed. Also it would be interesting to see what the numbers are on Hit and Run accident reports which sometime come into play for insurance fraud and DWI's. This is a good article but I think the statics as they are presented by the state are not broken down correctly.

Lynn Woolsey's opinion is hers to say what she pleases. The facts are homosexual men have molested boys and in particular Boy Scouts and it happened all to often! Schenectady County Council had over two dozen Scouts molested by a Scout Executive several years ago and nothing was done to prevent him from doing so in another Council. Those who want the Boys Scouts to embrace homosexual leaders should take the time to see what happens to those molested by them. Homosexuals who prey on boys are not gay!

Swartz must be a real class act. Good to see the jury sent him a message to act like an adult and not a fifth grader, no matter want the situation.

Kudos to the Daily Rag for giving this story top billing over the Boston terrorist attacks. Glad you know a real news story when you see it.

everyone who has needed advice for loans has done so on their own so far, dont need to help them. cdbg funds should not be used because the school district did not file paperwork on time, their fault. if a child needs help reading that is a parents reasponsibility not a special ed teacher, remember when there was family accountability? and if a house is abandonded, demolish it and bill the owner. the IRS can garnish wages for back taxes, why cant the city?

Tom Schottman- Studies have shown that increases in funding to provide more educators for students does in fact not increase better results. Successful schools such as Colonie ,Niskayuna and BHBL and several other in our area turn-out positive results.
Reason being is their core. The core being educated Parents in their community. School Districts like Schenectady , Albany, Troy should conduct programs for the Parent/Students in their community to educate those parents on how to keep their children focused and on track!!!

This is just another example of government waste. There really is no demand currently. All they are going to accomplish is the elimination of 26 parkingspots in the county. Charge your prius at home and stay there.

why dont you people run for office or go to meetings and voice your opinions? venting here does no good for the residents of the city, put your energy into action. if there were as many people at the podium at a meeting saying the things said here, things could change. ACT
