Safny- not exactly sure how you make that comment. Based on one incident and the manner the gazette reported it? I know Carl Falotico and he is not only a competent attorney, but Schenectady should be proud to have him as their Corporation Counsel. I know this first, hand from working with him. You?

How many times do we have to hear this guy's opinion. He must be the smartest guy in the world because he seems to be the only one with this opinion. His opinion must have been printed at least ten times in this paper. I wonder who in the stockade has ties to this guy if he isn't a stockade resident himself.....

Funny you should say that Mr. Lull. I drove through there just yesterday and wondered how, with all the trips back to the drawing board, the public and private meetings, the money spent and the long process and inconvenience of the construction, someone should have realized that grass grows and it needs to be cut. I guess a lawn mower and a person to operate it were out of the budget.

I dont think anyone realizes the complexity of the whole issue. First, the officers used to be hired directly by the establishments but the city decided that it wanted all details to go through them, at a higher cost to the establishment I might add. This was done for several reasons, from control to liability, etc. The officer doesn't get paid any more more but it is nearly twice the cost per hour for whomever needs them. Second, officers sign up for overtime and are sometimes assigned to the detail and some times the shift. You don't necessarily sign up for the detail or the street and get the assignment of your choice. Therefore, who is it up to, to decide if you are working towards your pension or not? Third, if you are assigned to work a block party or other detail, you could be called away if there is an emergency to assist the patrols or another function. When this happens, the financial burden is supposed to come off the establishment but who knows if it does? It was never broke. They tried to fix it. Now it is broken....

Why is it that all the stockade residents want to bring up the comments by UNION COLLEGE PROFESSOR John Garver but seem to be deaf to all the studies that say otherwise. I suppose he is the one that said the planes from Stratton ANG are shaking your houses off their foundations. Maybe all the stockade residents need to realize their buildings are very old and in need of expensive repairs and they live in a flood plain. They also need to realize that they don't own the riverfront and others would like to enjoy it. Maybe we should have an annual festival like Tuesday in the Park in Riverfront Park for ALL city residents to come discover it's beauty. The rest of the city needs to know that the only city residents they are concerned with are themselves...

In the fifth paragraph, the word "commiserate" is used where the intended word is clearly "commensurate". Either that was an error by the speaker, or an error by the transcriber. If it was an error by the speaker, it should be immediately followed by "[sic]"; if it was an error by the transcriber, it should be corrected, as it currently makes no sense.

Ive been on that bus and noticed how they drive those buses with the door open and people standing right next to it on the steps. Has anyone looked into that being the reason the guide was thrown from the bus? I'd be willing to bet, that was the case...
