Right on! If you don't like abortion, don't have one!
But now on holiday trees ... the word is formed of "holy" + "day", so what's the problem. I can remember non-Christians who would get angry when greeted with "Merry Christmas", or "have a Merry Christmas" ... and knowing that no one said that to antagonize the recipient of the greeting though the complainer to be ..well, a "d"-bag. Now I feel that those who let their nose get bent out of shape by a "happy holiday" greeting are no better.
Considering the stress of the season, I think I'm lucky to receive any pleasent greeting at all!

I don't disagree that there are SOME people who don't like the president because of race. But most don't like him because of his effectiveness and qualifications.
I say this as someone who voted for him his first run, but he failed to show himself worthy of anymore votes. Some may say race is the reason for many of the GOP and others not liking him ... but I'd wager that were some other QUALIFIED black person sitting in that office, such as Colin Powell, Kane, or Condellisa (sp?) Rice that most of those same currently opposing would be supporting.

I see a Mohawk Ambulance parked in the lot of the Senior Center, plugged into the town power.
Why is the TOWN paying for power for a PRIVATE company's vehicle?
Why is the town furnishing a parking space for a private company's vehicle?
Obviously, Mohawk WANTS to be the ambulence "of choice" in Rotterdam, as does REMS. So why should the town just "give" away that endorsement? What other company would maybe like to be the "on-call" Rotterdam ambulance?
The town should accept BIDS to see what company or organization is willing to PAY for the privilege of being the "town ambulance".
May the highest bidder win.

How about giving CURRENT residents of NYS an INCENTIVE to STAY here?
Stop with the corporate welfare. And if you give corporate welfare, dole it out by the month (where you can better control fraud and broken promises) instead of offering big lump sum give-aways.
The reason the park’s nonprofit corporate owner is being driven into insolvency is because the concept was A BAD IDEA. It should have been built somewhere where this was already a supply of water, electricity, nearby roads ... like the Schenectady G.E. plant ... instead of building a new city in the country.
Enough with the giveaways. Give me a reason to stay!

Gee, if the girl was in foster care, I'm sure social services would have covered any needed dental care, it would not have cost Walker anything. w-t-f is wrong with Walker? agree w/ "safny" on this.

Yes, the Thanksgiving Day paper is a lot bigger and heavier --- due to the ads.
So shouldn't those advertising be the ones to pay any added costs of that day's paper>

John Parisella - I wish you had divulged the name of the doctor dumping the trash. Fear of public shame is what keeps a lot of people honest.

Sharon Trumpler ("Median project will just add to mess on Washington Ave.") thinks it would be a good idea to waste lots of money on an elevated pedestrian crossing over Washington Ave.
She should take a count of how many people use the OTHER pedestrian bridge over Rt 5 compared to those who walk across at street level. NO ONE, or very few, are going to take the time and effort to walk up a stairway, to cross and walk back down.
As far as requiring students to use it ... well this is still a free country and we have this thing called "freedom of movement". If anyone (car driver, pedestrian, bicyclist) disobeys a traffic device, then by all means, ticket them. But don't try limiting my freedom "for my own protection", unless you're ready to be confined within your own home "for your protection" - because that becomes the eventual outcome of such nanny-state measures.
BTW, I own a business downtown, walk, drive, take a bus, and at age 60+ attend SCCC as well.

But how much did the domolition cost taxpayers?
-and playing devils' advocate: stories made it sould as if this sign alone was responsible for all the business in Johnstown. If that was true, then would it be true that no traffic from points east and south of the sign, where there are no similar signs, came to the Glove Cities?

The map incorrectly positions the Cafe on the west side of N. Ferry, and on the wrong block.
The Cafe is on the EAST (right) side of S. Ferry St, mid-block between Liberty and Union, 1.5 blocks north of State and S. Ferry.
