IMHO, many of the problems with our area are because of the negativism of people who live here. Whenever there is enthusiasm and new ideas, the naysayers far outweigh those wiling to take a chance. Let's give it a try, like the casino. I feel the casino is just a small part of the overall package and look forward to the riverfront being developed. Perhaps a market is just what the mall area needs. I recall when the mall was first built, friends in Cobleskill were thrilled because it was close to them. It would not only be for Rotterdam. Just because it wouldn't be your choice, it might appeal to others with expendable income. I didn't hear mention of a junk store but I would agree, we are a bit overrun with dollar stores. I know others who love them but we don't all have to visit everything. At least give it a chance.

Obviously no pro-Dem to make this a more balanced report.

In the spring of '57 I lived with my grandmother on Parkwood Blvd because my mother was ill. I don't know how they kept me out of school since I was 10 at the time. I would get up early and walk to McClellan and Eastern Ave and wait for the horse and wagon to pick me up. The driver was George Palmer and I loved to spend the day with him, helping with deliveries. He would send me back to the wagon to get items for customers. I loved to feed the horse and feed myself cream-filled cupcakes for lunch.

My mother and her best friend, Becky, had a cup of coffee at our kitchen table every morning, without fail. Often "Dick" the Freihofer man joined them for his coffee break. While the three chatted about the weather, neighborhood news, whatever, I had a chance to pet his beautiful horse. I was sorry that it was never more than a few minutes, I never did get enough time with that lovely, serene animal. I know my husband has his own memories, will post them later.
