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....

I was told BY NATIONAL GRID that in our area electricity used to be produced by coal burning methods. Now, all of our electricity is produced by means of natural gas but the pipelines to get the gas to the facilities are insufficient. Sounds like a crock of you know what or a ploy to get their pipelines in. Either way if what I was told is true, then whoever made the decision to switch from coal to natural gas, before the fuels were easily accessible, is to blame. Then again, maybe he or she is to be rewarded by the powers that be.

If there was a "13th check" in December 2011 I never got it. So where is it now?

Who was in charge and decided not to raise the gates to save on overtime during the hurricane which ultimately caused the destruction? Way to go Mr Stratton. You got someone else to pay for your mistake.

Hitler said that if you make people believe that what you are doing is for the good of our children, people will support it. Andy Cuomo apparently knew that too when you consider the timing and method the un-SAFE ACT was forced on us.

Maybe people will spend their welfare checks at the casino instead of $100 dollars at a rip buying scratch off lottery tickets, therefore making convenience stores convenient again....it's a win win.

If taxes were paid in January for the year 2014, that included this service, how can they just all of a sudden say you are not getting it. As far as I'm concerned, it was already paid for. Is anyone getting a portion of their taxes refunded? If you buy a car with power seats, do they come to you after it's paid for and say, "you need to pay us extra for those seats or we are taking them back..."? ....And don't let anyone tell you that taxes are paid for the year before. That's why you reimburse a previous owner, at closing, for taxes paid when you buy a house.

Speaking of sweeping the pavement, there is a truckload of sand and dirt in front of my house in the street, that they dumped there all winter long. Why don't they put the manpower to use cleaning that up? It would be a shame if all the mud that is out there every time it rains covers up their square. Heck it might even wear the paint off. Nothing against the workers, they are doing what they're told but those in charge should maybe do what the taxes are paying for and their now optional brush program should be done when the other work is done. It is no longer a town priority if it is optional so it should take a back seat...
