Why not use some of that money to fix up the city's Fire stations. They're in just as bad shape as these houses are.

Subsidized housing? Don't go the way of Schenectady, let it continue to be the hub of subsidized living for the Capital District and beyond. You will condemn all of the revitalization efforts that have been made to improve Bridge St. Please don't even consider it, as it should go without saying, subsidies do not create revenue, only a massive drain of tax dollars with increased welfare rolls and increased crime rates. Absolutely not conducive to economic development and will most certainly destroy any business on the South side.

I was given a ticket for an open container , which was an empty can of beer. The police sent the woman to approach my car so they could most likely have a reason to search my vehicle. I did not ask the woman to enter my vehicle she approached from the rear opened the door and sat in my car. Seconds later officers surrounded me and tore apart my vehicle. There was nothing in my car that was illegal. I passed my field sobriety test and was cuffed and booked for an empty can of beer.

Today I was fired after working for 13 years at the facility. The explanation I was given was it was a result of my actions last night... Which was the incident explained. Further I am a father of two. Thiis woman that I never seen before enters my vehicle uninvited now the media is making it out to be something it wasn't. Schdy PD may have known she was a hooker to me she was a nut job that took it upon herself to open my car door and sit inside. Before I could figure what the hell she was trying to say through her highly impaired state officers pulled up and proceeded to arrest me followed by our Mayors swift reaction to fire me when I was CHARGED not even guilty of an open container.. Can I remind people The schdy police officer accused of brandishing his weapon and threaten people in plain clothes is on a 30 day suspension..

Actually clerk jobs are hard to find within Schenectady County considering the nepotism slant that factors into almost every hiring that takes place. Civil Service is such a weakly veiled agency of supposed fair hiring practices, still the general public has no idea they do not stand a chance of being hired from a list for an "open" position for which they took a test for. However, every county employee knows they play hand in hand with the dirty political department heads' agendas and seniority or rank on a list means nothing.

Coercion of this sort is nothing new, it's rampant in many departments. The Democrats are quick to try to cover up for these indiscretions, lest their stellar repuations become tarnished. It is not uncommon for a small promotion or pay raise to be denied as retribution for rebuking unwanted advances. It's not the first time a case like this has come to light, and I can't imagine it will be the last. The ones from Rotterdam seem to be the worst.

Really? Why is the gazette reporting on the sentencing of a common criminal and trying to turn him into some type of twisted story book character? REPORT THE NEWS WITHOUT YOUR LIBERAL TALL TALES.
Stop trying to romanticize Schenectady's crime!

The roundabouts at Fuller and Washington are just newly opening. In fact, they are not even complete. It takes about a month for folks to get used to them and, once they do, most find them superior.

As to fender benders, here's a question for wmarinic: If your son or daughter was T-boned at a new signalized intersection that could have been a roundabout, how would you feel? A fender bender is minor property damage. A T-bone is bodily injury or death (oh, in addition to MUCH great property damage). Kudos to manjoe - he's right on the money.

Kudos as well to the Gazette for not only giving this issue clarity and focus, but for having the guts to reassess its position noted in 2007. There aren't too many institutions these days that will admit they were wrong, but I resepect the Gazette for being 'real'.

One final comment - the roundabouts under discussion in Malta are only one-lane. The others in Malta, and at Fuller/Washington, are two lane roundabout. The one-laners are super simple to navigate.
