Union College SHOULD have higher standards and suspend this coach indefinetly.
A poor black person exhibiting this behavior would be instantly arrested for assault and face jail time. The fact that this white coach from a wealthy college was not arrested shows the disparity and discrimination in our society between the classes.

Why not look into a simple free shuttle bus service or expansion of CDTA route or school bus route that is available to transport kids and adults from point A in Hamilton Hill after school to point B main library and back? The more time you cant get these at risk youth to spend in the library the better.

Can't either of you above offer ANY positive constructive criticism? Any positive ideas or solutions to what you see wrong with the City? Why not run for office and see what you can accomplish? Why not see if the residents of Schenectady back "your vision" for the city and if you are able to improve things?

When it comes to health care expenses, Mr. Spring needs educate the community and users. Is this a self funded system? Is all about cost of premiums? Who pays what exactly? Then, he needs to identify who the biggest users are- and what is causing them to use more services- and then educate this population on reducing their use. Are employees bringing their children to the extremely expensive ER instead of Urgent Care for an ear infection? Are they themselves going to a specialist too frequently for routine care like checking blood pressure? Can people increase their time between visits by 1 week without effecting their health? Are the people effecting the cost of premiums smokers? Are the doctors themselves part of the problem by forcing patients to return for an additional visit to obtain test results when the doctor should call patient instead of requiring a second visit? Are they educated on healthy eating habits?

Vince Riggi is on the right path. Also, what are department heads doing to educate city workers on being healthy and not abusing using healthcare? Does the city have any idea where exactly the bulk of healthcare expenses are going? Medication? Lung cancer treatment from smoking? High blood pressure? Diabetes? Many conditions can be improved or prevented with education on diet and programs to help people stop smoking.

How easy is it for a primary care office to confirm flu and what strain it is?
I hear a lot of cases where people are given antibiotics for flu symptoms without primary care doctors confirming its a bacterial infection first. Also, I rarely see doctors, nurses, and assistants washing their hands before touching a patient. And Im wondering why the hospital ER's do not designate separate rooms or areas and give masks for people showing up with symptoms to keep them separated from people with broken bones. A little common sense would go a long way to stop spread of all infections.

What are the new fire chief's and Mayors plans to control over time by scheduling vacations and personal time properly? Sick time, vacation and personal time should not be allowed to carry over.

Why is this higher paying which adds to current and future health benefits and pension costs needed?
