I did not spill ANY oil - that camera is a liar.

Illegal fireworks are an unfortunate tradition that no one really seems to want to do anything about. M 80's are the worst. Those things are incredibly loud and dangerous. Yet in central State fireworks were going off from the middle of June until at least 10 days after July 4. Endlessly. I understand that the police are busy, but at some point it would be nice if they tried to stop this so it was limited to July 4. And perhaps limited to smaller less noisy items.

Just what one expects here - these are NOT the types of businesses I want my money being thrown at - production!!

Good thinking, moron. Child of 4 has accident - hardly unknown, so beat her. With a belt, no less. She's probably not even yours.

The abandonment of the Stockade would be a disaster for a city that already has plenty of problems. I agree that the government should help people raise their homes. Not pay for it completely, but help. There have been so many hurricanes and
storms that have created billions of dollars of damage, that it's understandable why flood insurance is so expensive. And people who choose to live in flood prone areas been to understand that other people who do not own homes do not want to keep paying to fix their houses. Living on the water is a choice.

Welcome to Schenectady - where anything important is going to be done in secret. All these people appointed to their positions by the mayor, whether approved by the city council or not, are going to agree with him or get fired, so they will just agree. This was just a way to avoid having the public hear what is going on - as per usual.

Really Darlene? I think you meant of COURSE. My problem was and is that this lot was not advertised and like everything else here the deal was done in secret. It should have been opened to bidders and perhaps it could be something else and better.

My concern is that if there is going to be an investigation - the chief should not be giving his opinion as to the outcome before the investigation is complete. Also - since walking in the street is an epidemic in this city, perhaps a sweep would teach people that they should stop doing it. Not just one ticket here and there - but a few days where anyone jay walking gets a ticket. In every neighborhood.

The NYRA was, is and shall ever be a dumping ground for incompetence and nepotism. It is a black hole into which tons of tax payer money is sucked with little or no return to the people who pay taxes in this state. Horse racing is generally outmoded and not attracting new, younger fans. So perhaps it will die a natural death despite its massive cost and just go away.
