Having recently retired, I no longer have to be to work on time. Yes people should leave a little earlier if you have to be somewhere at a certain time, but the sky is not the limit. You are wasting my time. I witnessed several times during my working years when a school bus would stop and there would be no students out to the curb only to see students 100 or feet up a driveway come out of the house and take their sweet time getting to the bus. Bus drivers should report this tardiness to the transportation supervisor who in turn notifies the administration. A disciplinary procedure should be in place. Start with a conference with the student in the principals office, subsequent incidents could lead to further discipline and calling the parents for a conference. You can bet if a parent had to miss work for this, that problem would be corrected.

He( Charlie Wells) makes $11K to 12K every yr. He is 63, he could sign up for Social Security. He won't get that much with his income level, a little less by claiming early, it might only be $400 to $500 a month but it would help.( You can make $15,720 per year without penalty between 62 and 66 yrs of age.)

Another distraction, the fair is on, hopefully there isn't some event that is tonight only that one would like to see. Poor timing by Canjo officials. It almost look like the meeting was deliberately set to keep the crowds down. I wonder how many people the village hall can handle?

It probably would be a good idea for every police station to have a diaper/cleaning kit for events such as this.

The only positive to all of this is that both are no longer holding public office. Given Silver's medical problems and age, he may die before any final outcome is known. Skelos is not all that young either.

From: Silver, Skelos may never serve time

The problem I have with Walsh, she is an attorney. Thats something we have to many of in the legislature. Attorneys making the laws, conflict of interest, every law made is written by attorneys so that more loopholes for more litigation are created to further fatten their wallets. The problem with Fischer is that I have heard from a source I can trust who has had experience with him that he can be a very nasty businessman.
