I commend the city of Schnectady for doing a proper background ck on the contractors. Too many times people buy these homes that have no idea what is wrong, how to properly fix it and bring it up to code. Hopefully with this screening you will be able to weed out those who obviously cannot complete the projects and ultimately the property ends up back on the city rolls in possibly a worse condition. It is a big task, but if handled properly this process could also help the city move forward.

And if you have not heard the latest, Obama has amended workfare so that states can opt of the the "work" part, if they put something else in place :) So what does that tell you? It starts at the top, the more freebies O passes out, the more votes he gets. Sad but true.

How many times did my parents tell me, and then I told my daughter, no ball throwing in the house. Minor damage or not it s a lack of respect from kids today with other people's property. Things happen, but punching holes in walls is no accident. Just ask landlords. What happens to common sense??

While government should not control how many pets we own, it is in my opinion OK for landlords to deny renters occupancy.

Deployments are scheduled way in advance and I doubt that this week's media coverage had anything to due with this, unless the governor seized the opportunity.
