It was buried for a reason....even back then the stockade residents whined and complained about what happens in or near their neighborhood so they had it buried. They think they own the riverfront so there is no public dock there; they were able to create a "no-fly zone" for the Air National Guard because they claimed the noise was loosening their foundation (failing to mention they are under water every other year) and they will try to sabotage any and all plans to actually bring people to the city and dig it out of it's own financial ruins.....all to save their precious stockade way of living. How about we build another fence around it, then in a couple hundred years we can dig it up again and ogle the ancient crack pipes and beer bottles.....

Nice.....the state gives away 500k to a single pool that charges a hefty admission to fix among other things lions head fountains. Other cities have to close their pools that are used mainly by kids because they cant afford to repair or staff them. Why dont the rich people who use it pitch in to fix it? They pay a fraction of the taxes that everyone else pays besides.....

Poverty and no jobs bring prostitution, not casinos.

It sounds to me like Hotaling got a raw deal after reading what the GUILTY defendants in the "Bow tie assault" received... a slap on the wrist for a far more serious crime! What an outrage! That is what people should be concerned about. Not about a 20 year veteran police Det. with an unblemished career taking "a deal" to retire.

The public should be less concerned about what Schenectady cops are doing off duty(allegedly) and be more concerned about this! THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS! these MEN are violent criminals and should be treated as such! I have truly lost faith in "the system" and definitely this judge!

Yet ANOTHER horribly written article by the worst reporter ever to work in the capital district. This article is so biased against police officers it is a joke. Kathleen Moore has no business reporting the news. Wasn't this Steve Cooks story anyway? Why is this Fiction storyteller writing this article then? Oh yea, Steve Cook would write it unbiased, unlike Kathleen Moore. Horrible Horrible reporter.

ANYONE that knows Hotaling knows this is TOTALLY out of his character however, a lot of people that know the person making the complaint say the person probably more than had it coming if it even happened at all. How about looking into both side's background before you rush to judgement. Then again, all you need to hear is Schenectady cop and you have already passed judgement.

A note to Elizabeth Warden, You so enjoy your very low taxes in Saratoga County, why? It might have something to do with Horse Racing. How many people have lost everything because they are addicted to the "ponies". Shut down Saratoga horse racing and Racino and see all the complaining that comes then. I'll pull up a chair to watch that show....

I wish I had time to start up a petition for all those that DO support a casino. Like anything else, only those that are against it take the time to speak out. The overwhelming majority of those I speak to are very much in favor. Casinos don't bring crime and create gambling addictions. Easy welfare benefits and lottery tickets do. Too bad neither one is going anywhere. Change only comes if you make it happen. Lack of business as usual in the blown fuse electric city....
