The state, a public sector employer needs to live within its means just like private sector employers. The private sector makes these difficult decisions every day. The claim is that the state is going to try to find other opportunities for those workers displaced. Some may be eligible for retirement. In a few instances they may have to lay off. Sure, no one wants to lose their job but it does happen. For those who would ask the question to me" How would you like to be losing your job", I will answer that question in advance. Been there, done that 4 times. Was asked back at one employer only to get laid off again 7 months later. My most recent previous employer asked me to come back and take a different position 18 months later, but declined as I had settled into a new job I liked very much.

If they wear the wrong type of helmet or no helmet, I don't care, its their life not mine. I am however glad they wrote tickets for loud exhaust. I for one would like to see more enforcement and greater penalties for things like excessive speed, tailgating, weaving in and out around traffic, things that pose a real threat to other motorists.

Many experts agree that these 2 individuals would not be able to pull this off. Experts have also labeled this not feasable. Sounds like 2 kids playing in their back yards using some kind of imaginary device during play.

Sounds almost like science fiction.

WPTR 1240 has very limited coverage, especially at night. Look for Empire to add another station and simulcast to get better coverage in Albany and Troy.

While it is unfortunate that good jobs have been lost here, it is important to note that private sector employers are willing to make tough choices that the public sector just will not make, and they(public sector) will bow to political pressure.

I Don't think individual school districts should be deciding this. There should be a uniform state law.

Is there any way this action by the board could be ruled invalid in that proper procedures were not followed?

It has been reported that a Fulton County sheriff's officer threatened reporters telling them if they did not move fast enough or took any pictures that they would be arrested. It would appear that they were close to the command post, apparently not that close to the crash debris, and were told to go some distance away. Apparently, no "police line" with tape was in place so no "zone" was defined. The attitude of this officer appears to be unprofessional at best. It appears that 2 people died on impact and the reporters could do little if any harm. Remember, the police agencies run to the press to ask for help to solve a case from the general public. The press should be respected by police as they themselves would like to be.
