"Demolition began just before noon...."
Actually demolition began several weeks ago, Thursday was the climax to the demo of the old Grants and Price Chopper buildings. The TU reported the story the same way. You guys need to stop "parachuting" into a story and learn all the facts before committing to print.

I'm not sure how much influence Metroplex has in getting State roads fixed. On one hand, having lived in Rotterdam most of my 70 years, I understand the frustration driving on Curry Rd., but I have to say that I don't think it takes me more than 5 or 6 minutes to go from one end of town to the other even on the heaviest traffic days. Just sayin'
As to the shopping center, glad to see it go. I lived down the street as a kid and saw it being built. My Mom was one of Grants original employees there.

Wow, I didn't realize the fees were that high....I adopted 2 abandoned/feral cats 2 years ago, they had been roaming the property where my apartment sits....I was able to contact a person who trapped them and then had them assessed, spayed, given all their shots, and flea treatment.....the total cost for all this was $40 per animal.....so I'm not sure how a private rescuer can do this for so little, and APF prices are so high.....

When most of these bridges were built, they probably met any height requirements. As time has gone on vehicles have gotten larger (especially Tractor Trailers). The bridges have not. So should we now have governments rebuild all the bridges? Who's going to pay for it?

....and just to be clear, I messaged the Aquarium, and it was indeed Lake Sturgeon that they were looking into. I was also informed that Sturgeon will not be displayed when they open, and there's a strong possibility that they won't be displayed at all. So your concerns re: Sturgeon seem to have been ironed out for the time being.
BTW Gazette this took me less than 5 minutes to find out. Just sayin'

PFS, I'm pretty sure that the Sturgeon that may be coming to the Aquarium is not a native Atlantic Sturgeon, but rather a New York State Hatchery grown Lake Sturgeon.

" What does this sentence mean? "one person who was on the boat" did what, exactly?
Well, the way I read the article,the person who was on the boat urged the others (who were also on the boat) not to discuss the incident.
