A true heroine. Thank you Carole, for making this city a better place.

It's TERRIFIC! I'm really happy they chose Schenectady. Anything that brings fun and excitement and attention to our city is a good thing. Can't wait to see our neighbors and neighborhoods on the silver screen!

The sudden departure of a good volunteer is usually a red flag for something else going on.

NYS is broke. I'd like to hear coherent workable suggestions from Mr. Donahue and from our esteemed elected officials.
It's too late for posturing. Come to the table with a solution.

This was the most authentic Broadway production I've seen at Proctors because of the richness of a full orchestra and the careful balance of sound. Richard Rogers' music was presented with the orchestrations created for the original production. It was luscious! Last night the balance of sound in the theater was perfect, and Rod Gilfry's baritone voice was unforgettable.

Unfortunately some other traveling shows at Proctors have been accompanied by the muddied sound of over miked synthesizers and drums that assault the ears and eclipse the dialogue. Last night was the real deal and my girlfriends and I are hoping for more.

Could someone please explain how the city decides which residents get sidewalks put in free, and which residents have to pay the $4,000 to have one done? (and that's a short one!)

It seems only fair that since the city planted the trees with invasive root systems that buckled the walks, that they also remove the trees AND fix the sidewalks. Otherwise it presents a "Catch 22" for residents who must pay for damage they didn't cause.

I'd choose trees over sidewalks any day, except the day someone trips on mine and sues me.

I hope that the heroic Mr. Carney, who now has a thorough understanding of the situation in the Schenectady School District, does not leave it ALL to the voters. It still will be tricky to get the district cleaned up without time consuming, expensive, and mean spirited lawsuits. He's the best lawman to assist us in maneuvering a clear path to justice. We need his expertise now more than ever.

So what CAN be done at this point? Surely the law must stand for a wider justice at some point. Mr. Carney, can you steer us in the right direction? The school board, and thus the school system, and thus the city of Schenectady are on the line here.

From: Ely a bum? Shhh, that’s ‘personnel’

And "comfortable inaction" is the MO that's gotten Schenectady where it is today...
