Moser is correct about over-emphasis on college. Besides welders, electricians, plumbers, there are needs for carpenters, heavy equipment operators and most of all tractor trailer drivers. Not everyone can be a white collar worker. Go NE2K!!!

Gimme gimme gimme, and let someone else pay for it! Not everyone needs to go to college, there are plenty of vocational programs for good paying jobs. Employers are crying out for plumbers, carpenters, electricians, and many other skills that need help.

Chuck, its the problem alright. I am not participating in the election as a voter. The one thing that stands out to me is that for years, the people have called for someone that is not a career politician, now that there is one, all of the long term politically connected are fighting a candidate the people selected in the primaries and caucuses.

All of these listed above should probably go down to the board of elections and change their party affiliation.

I read the mothers comments in another area news source. Her comments do not create a positive perception of the family's reputation.

As Gomer Pyle would say "Surprise Surprise Surprise". I don't think that there is a person who did not think this was a hoax. She will get very little in the way of penalty for this misdemeanor. There was the report that a theft was committed from a job related incident. Hopefully, if this proves to be true, she will spend a good amount of time in jail. Its too bad she can't be forced to pay for the six figure cost of the search.

To me, having taken care of a phone system for a previous employer, I think an overlay area code would be a no-brainer. The only real disadvantage would be that you would have to dial 10 digits to call everyone in the area code territory including your next door neighbor. The proposed map would put Albany and Schenectady in different area codes under a geographical split. There has not been a Geographical split in North America in 9 years. Those who end up in the different area code under a split would have to take their cell phones to their dealer for reprogramming, certainly an inconvience. When I was taking care of that phone system, I would on occaision get a call from a fellow employee that they could not get through to a vendor or customer. And every time with out fail, I found out the area code had changed. This would not be a problem with an overlay since everyone would keep their existing number. My predictions, it will end up as an overlay and I see 2 possibilities; either 550 or 838 as the new area code.
