David,Google NYSTRS Annual Reports. Click on to Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR). There you will get annual reports for the teachers' retirement fund going back to 2002. It is much harder to find employee retirement funds, because they are not as open as TRS is.

Bill, can you produce that "fact that Republicans from state houses to Congress work hard to restrict blacks and Hispanics from voting in specific states, because those groups usually vote Democratic"?

Correction: It was at the September 24th and October,8th meetings of the Board of Education where board members and the community discussed the renewal of the boys varsity basketball coach, not in May of 2014.

I think Dr. Tangorra stepped on the third rail of sports politics in Niskayuna. The sudden firing of Coach Markowitz without reason brought crew members and their parents to the board of education meeting tonight, and they packed the place. To fire a coach and have no ready replacement is not wise.
Parents of school children take their sports seriously; they put a lot of time and effort into it, especially when there is the possibility that their child could be considered for a sports scholarship to college.
In May of 2014, Board of Education members failed to renew the contract of the boys’ varsity basketball coach. Then, there was a full airing of the matter, which took two meetings that filled the auditorium at Van Antwerp middle school. Everyone had his or her say. Contrast that with the sudden firing of Coach Markowitz.

Barry, I believe “elderly gentleman” instead of “an older white male” would be a better description. Sadly, he is right in many cases.

Sometimes there are children so disruptive and violent that only the police can handle them. That happens to be the sad truth.

Kurt, are your data based on the data of the 1970s? What are you comparing your information to?

Saratoga Springs Police Chief Greg Veitch blew it when he said he wanted to fire PO Nathan Baker. As the top cop he should realize that what he did sent a message to the Saratoga Springs police force to look out. If they do anything that is not approved by the PC freaks, he is not going to support them. He is going to through them under the bus like he wants to do to Baker. Great leadership.
