The only thing now is for those who opposed it refrain from patronizing it. But just as sure as I know my own name, those who did oppose it will be among the first ones there when it opens and will shop there just as frequently as those who were for it.

I find that the vast majority of school bus drivers understand that others a trying to get to work at the time buses are out on their routes. And many of these bus drivers pull over to let cars they have built up go by. But there are a few select bus drivers that don't care if there are 20 or more cars behind them, they just keep going. Yes people should leave a little early, but how much earlier? I have seen several incidents where children are not out there when the bus arrives. They take their sweet time getting to the bus while the driver has his door open and the red lights flashing. The first rule on the posting on the front of the bus is to be ready when the bus arrives. Drivers should be obligated to report such tardiness to the transportation supervisor who in turn should notify the administration. Repeated tardiness should result in diciplinary action to the students, detention, loss of bus priveledges, suspension, and in person conferences with the principal. Even threaten to report them to social services, that will make them take notice. Remember people get paid when they are at work, not to travel to and from work. Thats my time that is being wasted.

The Gov. could step aside and hope the Feds take it over, then he would be off the hook.

Yes campaign signs do serve an informational purpose, but you don't need 10 or more of the same sign spaced 25 feet from each other. Did anyone ever go out and count the # of signs each candidate has and vote for the one with the most?

The nearest thing like this ever tried on over the air TV 5 night a week was 7:30 live on WNYT-TV many years ago. As the name implied it aired at 7:30 on week nights. It was a combination of in depth news, feature reporting, the late Bob MacNamara moved his player of the week segment there. It was a flop and lasted just a few weeks. Most people are to bed by 10:30. I would not want to place a bet on whether or not this will last. In the broadcast industry it is "whatever sells".

Its too bad, things don't look good for Ed.Wished the outlook was better. I noticed that CBS6 has an employment listing on their website for a news anchor dated 8/19/15. I am thinking it is for Ed's position under the assumption he will not be back.

The first sentence by charles displays selfishness. This is a regional issue that will help the regional economy, not county against county. There is more to this than the route 30A bridge not built to handle truck traffic. You have 2 places in the village of Fonda where tractor-trailers must turn in what are fairly narrow intersections. And remember, the distribution and other businesses in Fulton county employ workers from Montgomery county as well as Fulton county. Montgomery county enjoys the advantages of having a limited access super highway passing through. That why they gained the Target warehouse and why Beech-Nut remained in Montgomery county when it built a new plant. Incidently, I live in Saratoga county and do not work Fulton or Montgomery counties and derive no benefits based on how this ends up.

How much walk in business is there on the present route? A Stewarts, A Cumberland farms, both of which are not locally owned and pay their employees peanuts. A gas filling station and a seasonally operated ice cream stand that gets primarily local patrons only on the Fonda side. The businesses on the Fultonville side, the truck stops, Mc Donalds, etc, might not be that adversely affected. Sounds like a case of selfishness on the part of Montgomery Co officials.
