Maybe parents should be teaching their children that respect for the law is more important than the objections of a teachers union. Children should be taught that the proper way to change a law is to obey it first, then to persuade the elected officials who passed it that change is needed. This is a classic example that child-rearing means more than providing food & clothing.

JoeK's thesis is valid as proven again & again by the Gazette's under-reporting of "the other NY team." And cidbil's comparison of "THE team" winning a game with the gifts of a three-run error and ridiculously sloppy base-running by their opponent with scoring ten runs in the first two innings of an away game is pitiful at best. LET'S GO METS!!!

Critical thinking requires an ability to understand that there are usually two or more sides of a question, making it necessary to analyze which is more reasonable & why. In my college liberal arts courses, my history instructors' exam questions often started with "Compare & contrast . . ." Apparently this teacher was awarded a Masters degree without ever having seen such a question.

Shenendahowa High School is not a military academy. A lacrosse coach is not a Marine drill instructor. The district did the right thing!

Hooray for Mayor King! Maybe the unjust enrichment of the former EDC/CIC staff, the insider board members & the taxpayers of the City of Johnstown at the expense of the taxpayers of the City of Gloversville will finally end. And a little note to Attorney Casale: if the resident Supreme Court Justice is assigned this case, you'd better make a recusal request based on conflicts of interest ASAP.

If you're lucky enough to have assessors like the great ones we have in our town, they'll let you know in plenty of time.

Since the embarrassments of the Adamkoski petition-forging incident of 1993 & the similar Hughes petition-forging incident of 2009, it seems unlikely any Democrats would want to associate themselves with the remnants of the clique responsible for those debacles.

Maybe (but don't count on it), relations between the City of Johnstown, the City of Gloversville and the Town of Johnstown can get back into a progressive mode; departmental mergers, shared services, shared revenues, etc, as examples.

Republican congressman from the North Country always attended the Fulton County Republican Committee's two annual fundraisers. That's just as good as having an office in Gloversville City Hall, isn't it?
