September 20, 2008 10:51:48 RangerDanger   Chester, I think all you can get is the actual IP of the person who posted.
September 20, 2008 10:50:56 The person who posted.   Chester, I am extreamly sorry as to doing that. I would also like to say that it was not meant to harm you, but to show that anyone could post as someone else. I am extremely sorry for that.
September 20, 2008 10:47:56 Chester   I have asked the webmaster of this site to trace the address of the person who sent the message and then that person and I will have some words through an attorney.
September 20, 2008 10:42:42 Camo Jane   That's just wrong if someone did that to Chester. I do not think this is funny either. It was childish and you lowered yourself down many levels in my book.
September 20, 2008 10:41:16 RangerDanger   Any ideas as to who it was, Chester? I can tell from the anger in how you just typed that it wasn't you.
September 20, 2008 10:31:52 Chester   Notice to who ever used my name on this board. I have never used the "F" word nor will I ever use it. If I find out who you are you will be a very sorry individual. This IS NOT funny. You might not agree with me nor even like me; that is O.K. but when you start using my name to talk filthy you and I will have a real problem.
September 20, 2008 10:25:07 camo jane   see Chester you're a mean, angry ole' man
September 20, 2008 10:19:41 RangerDanger   Did he really just say that? I'm in shock.
September 20, 2008 10:14:42 Grumpy Ernst Keidel Cdr_Keidel@Hotmail.com Come on, Chester! Play nice!
September 20, 2008 10:01:05 Chester   Get the f*u*c*k off the message board Jim. You hick! LOL
September 20, 2008 09:59:40 Mossy Jim   Actually Chester, a wench can also mean (and is often taken to mean) a very promiscuous woman, who provides a "service" to many men. And I guess if you wanted to classify me as "hick" then you could. No need for name calling though. :)
September 19, 2008 18:49:31 Chester   Camo-Jane Now me. I am proud to be a hick!!
September 19, 2008 18:41:33 Camo jane   If you don't care than why'd you respond ? Guess you cared after all. Is that hick or old fuddy duddy ? He sounds red neckish to me. But that's cool right?
September 18, 2008 20:40:01 Chester   Mossy Jim - Yep you sound like a hick!! Wench is a perfectly acceptable Middle English word meaning a female server or what we call a waitress. As to not liking me guess what? Don't read what I write !! You sound like an old fuddy duddy to me. And please don't ID yourself as I do not care who you are.
September 18, 2008 19:01:01 Mossy Jim   Oh, and before you whip out the broken record of "identify yourself." I've lived in Masonville since I was born, in the same house. My family has been there for generations. I feel no need to "identify" myself to you.
September 18, 2008 18:55:30 Mossy Jim   Chester, you probably didn't get that cemetery idea passed through the board because no one likes you. And really, wenches? Kids could be reading this message board. I agree with heck. Your too "over the top" in quite a few of your posts. Not to mention "LOL" at the end of most of them gets quite annoying.
September 17, 2008 20:24:43 George Denys gdenys@citlink.net Hi folks, at this time there will be no referendum on the status of the Highway position. It will remain an elected position. Chuck is the only one I am aware of on the ballot. I cannot see how this is "Prearanged". Anyone can run. That being said, I feel Chuck is clearly capable and qualified. The next Master Plan meeting is Sept 24th. 7 pm at the church. See you there!! Also, please remember that pitchforks and torches are not allowed in the church.
September 17, 2008 16:49:04 Chester   Was listening to the scanner yesterday afternoon and heard the pursuit of a black Honda starting the otherside of Holmesville on RTE 8 and ended in Masonville. I got to the lights about the time the guy spun out near the school. Most exciting thing that has happened in Masonville since Adam was a pup. Guns and Cops! WOW!! Bet he got a ticket for speeding in the 45-30 MPH zone!! Bet the cops were upset they were outran by a HONDA!!! LOL
September 17, 2008 16:40:15 Chester   Hey Heck ? If they run us out of town can I be first on the rail? Feathers ain't so bad but I hope the tar is not too hot. If Chuck has sick time coming and he is eventually the highway super I too think he should get any time he has saved up. He put in the time and earned it.
September 17, 2008 16:31:16 heck   hey chester- i would never identify myself under adverse conditions- heck, i'd get run outta town like poor ol' doug harris! just kidding. i did think the statement was off the wall coming from you- but squeezed my two cents in anyway. i think chuck should get his sick time, btw!
September 17, 2008 15:08:48 Chester   Chuck-gets-elected I wondered about that wording myself. As I understand it he is the only one being considered for the job if it is an appointed position and if there is an election for the job he is (I guess)the only one running for the position. At this time anyway. No matter it makes the entire thing sound sort of pre-arranged. Isn't there a saying about not counting chickens before the eggs hatch?
September 17, 2008 14:48:12 ChuckGetsElected?   Chuck asked the Board questions regarding the upcoming budget. Chuck requests to be paid for his unused sick time once he is elected Highway Superintendent.� He currently has about 400 hrs sick time. Chuck stated that he checked with other Superintendents and this is standard practice in these situations. Chuck stated he believed the Board paid out Duane's sick time and he is looking for the same considerations. Craig said the Board will take it under advisement.
September 17, 2008 13:32:02 "Ben" There   Chester, you bet it makes a difference.
September 17, 2008 09:30:48 Chester   I noted in the Town Board Meeting Minutes that the Board approved a motion by a person to supply name signs for the Pioneer Cemetery. That is great. But, why did the Board approve it this time? Last meeting I offered to supply signs for Both cemeteries (Pioneer and the one on 206) and never heard a peep from the board. Guess it makes a difference who is making the offer huh?
September 17, 2008 09:20:56 Chester   Dear "What-The-Heck" Before you get your knickers in a knot. I am not making love to anyone; upstate or downstate. Nor am I belittling anyone, upstate or downstate. - Unfortunately I did not read the board after I posted. I posted a note concerning the taxpayers bailing out *CENSORED* Mae and Freddie Mac. I just noticed that massage did not make it to the board and the comment about "coffee and donuts" was a PS to the original note. - I do not know who you might be, but identifying yourself would be a great start to any conversation.
September 16, 2008 20:15:09 what the heck?   hey chester- was your response meant for the guy asking about updating the message board? cuz coming from an intelligent man like yourself that was pure *CENSORED*. this message board can be a massive joke with everyone making love to the downstaters instead of answering a local's question- it happens all the time! no offense to anyone coming here to enjoy the tranquility- but pleeeeze! it isn't that difficult to update a message board in such a fashion- maybe only difficult for some of the ancients to figure it out. and that was just rude! on the other hand, if it wasn't meant for him at all, my apologies and carry on with your business.
September 15, 2008 18:57:46 bertimouse   Hi Gloria, If you go to the masonvilleny.com main "home" page, just click on the latest meeting minute reports for the town; they always report at the town mtgs. when the next Master Plan mtg. will be. :)
September 15, 2008 16:53:47 Gloria   When is the meeting for the town "Master Plan"? It may be posted somewhere but I can't find it with out going through pages of messages. Thanks
September 14, 2008 10:27:49 Grumpy Ernst Keidel Cdr_Keidel@Hotmail.com Clay, I forwarded them to my webmaster on the 10th, when I got them. I am waiting along with you.
September 14, 2008 03:26:42 clay foster   when will the minutes be posted from septembers meeting
September 14, 2008 01:35:53 mom   sicko !
September 13, 2008 17:34:55 Chester   And how about donuts, coffee and a serving wench to go with that?
September 12, 2008 11:18:08 tommy klehr tklehr@yahoo.com hey grumpy... do you think we could divide up the message board into categories? it's been a while since i've read the messages here, and it's hard to weed through the private conversations, etc. i've seen other sites that have different groups based on interests... perhaps "government", "business", "church", "miscellaneous", etc. thanks! :-)
September 11, 2008 21:22:57 bertimouse   Yes Tony,was born&raised flat-sand-lander&proud of the way Suffolk County used to be. But, here's a question: are people who live in Masonville called(ha ha this is meant to be humorous here): "Masonites","Masonvillians" or "Masonvillains". Our personal favorite is Masonvillain, heh heh. But, does the label matter according to how long you've lived here or where you're from, or your political affiliation? Hmmm...he he... I'd call you a "flatlander" too (without the sand) unless you want to be a "Lawg-Ilindah";in which case you'd have a Queens/Nassau & now South Suffolk County accent. In any case all the native goodfolk in these parts know this type of accent designates what(we)like to call a "transplanted flatlander". :) 'Yall are welcome to be my good neighbor anytime; just leave yur city attitudes behind when you move in 'cause yur not in Kansas anymore Toto, you know? & dig this;don't mean to offend anyone here.-Have a Happy weekend & enjoy the moisture! :) **************P.S.-Went fishing @ Pepacton Reservoir on 9/13/01 @ 5:00a.m.& was followed by a State Trooper all the way around-at the time it was surreal but comforting to know that our guys were out there protecting NYC'S water supply. Peace, this day of remembrance eh? (Did the Town of Masonville have any ceremonies to remember this day? Not that I know of; pity that if they did-wasn't posted here at their "message board", eh? OK, NUFF SAID!)
September 11, 2008 15:06:16 Tony CR-20   Ok Chester...point taken, I'm a Long Islander. Your right though, never tell that to a Brooklynite or Queens person! Anyway, soon enough I'll be a Masonite! Lol Get it? Sorry about your daughter's fiance, that must have been a tough scene. Gotta go...heading up there within the hour. Have a great weekend!
September 11, 2008 11:14:17 Chester   Tony - <GRIN> On looking at a map you will discover that once you have crossed the bridges from Manhatten or Bronx you are on Long Island. (Please don't tell them in Brooklyn or Queens; they would be upset.LOL). So guess we would have to say you lived on LI all your life!! As to my daughter's fiance; no he was not working for DEP. He was fishing at night near the Shavertown Bridge when he somehow fell from his boat and drowned. They searched for his body for several days.
September 10, 2008 23:40:38 Tony CR-20   Wait a second there Chester...I was born in Brooklyn, moved to Long Island at age of 12. Stayed to 40...moved to Queens and then eventually up there to Masonville at age 50. I don't know how you count that! Lol Anyway, your daughters fiance...did he work for NYC DEP? I seem to recall a person that worked for them that died in one of the reservoirs up there. Very sad.
September 10, 2008 16:17:32 Chester   PS - I may be the only person in the state of New York who actually migrated TOO LI rather than migrating FROM it. LOL
September 10, 2008 10:18:03 Chester   I got a NYC water supply access permit in 1959 (still have it) and fished the reserviors for years; then came Sept 11 2001 and the country wide paranoia set in. Never got the new permit. Sold the boat and have never been back to fish. My daughters fiance drowned a few years ago in the Pepecton. I think he is the only life ever lost in that reservior.
September 09, 2008 23:09:09 Tony CR-20   Nah RD...still working on the house and property up there. I can't see myself starting to fish for a few months or even years yet. Thanks for the advice though...I will keep the spot in mind.
September 09, 2008 22:57:03 RangerDanger   Tony, the Cannonsville Reservoir is a wonderful spot to fish. It's hard to believe that at one point in time there were a bunch of towns under all that water. I go every time I get the chance, mostly for Bullheads. Have you sent for your access permit for the NYC Watershed?
September 09, 2008 22:54:08 Tony CR-20   Wow..you too Berti? What a small world. Fishing out there for years was great...but to tell you the truth, I will not miss it at all. Way to much work. Setting up the boat with electronics before leaving the slip. Loading all the equipment and bait and then pulling up to the fuel dock and getting the shock of your life. Then the 2 hour trip out to the canyon. Fishing all day...hopefully catching something...and if you hooked up, before fighting the fish you had to bring in every other line you had out there trolling around. Then heading back to unload everything, clean the boat, clean the fish and drive 2 hours back home. Nah...give me the country life any day! :) The only real thrill...a side from fighting the fish... was coming to shore with a shark tied to the side or a tuna on board and the local restaurant owners fighting for the fish when we dock up! Priceless!!!
September 09, 2008 22:18:08 bertimouse   Tony, nothing beats those rough waters of the Shinnecock "Canal" as we used to call it, Heh heh.***** for fishing. Haven't been to the Hamptons(HotDog Beach)or our oceans [i.e.-South side of Long Island=50+ miles of beautiful beaches]in years & trust us; you will miss it. Another one of my brothers has lived in Colorado for 30 years & misses clamming days on Great South Bay.[It's a "Great Bay" 'cause it protects NY from hurricanes,yall;look it up]We grew up swimming there & had a converted cabin cruiser with an inboard Chevy motor called the "houseboat" decorated with "flower-power" stickers that convinced Dad were right to stick on the sides, He he. -Many fun family times/memories made on that old boat. Boat keys instead of car keys were borrowed from Dad on weekends. When my Dad passed away, so did the boat. I like to think she's still chugging away somewhere... Now, it's too expensive on Long Island w Nassau County/NYC $$ & congestion moving in; Arr, a real shame. But the fishing on the West Coast of Mexico is still pretty exciting - I reeled in a 15 foot sailfish on the first strike which was "priceless". (I let it go but we hooked a 10 footer which swallowed the hook on the next stike-good eating!) Arr, Tony don't get me here started about fish stories! :) ;) What I would give, to trade a day sailing on the ocean fishing - for a day at my so peaceful home & garden in these beautiful rolling green hills! We should always be thankful eh? For the little bit of heaven we've managed to scrap out for ourselves. Memories are cool, too.
September 09, 2008 21:27:54 Chester   Jim Taylor was a avid tuna fisher. He ran a carpet store on Merrick road in Amityville for a long time and now lives near Margaretville where his wife is music teacher. His father-in-law died of a heart attack while he and Jim and Jim's wife were fishing the canyon.
September 09, 2008 17:08:10 Tony CR-20   No Chester...neither name rings a bell. I kept away from the busy Marinas and had a slip on the backside of a hotel called the Black Whale. It was one of two slips located there and was 5 minutes from the channel. Kept to myself mostly with a crew of 3 close friends that fished the "canyon" as much as possible. Being the youngest of the 3, I was always the one to sit in the chair for hours reeling in the big ones! When I finally move up to Masonville, I would like to try that calm lake type fishing. I know I will enjoy that!
September 09, 2008 15:04:23 Chester   Tony- Did you happen to know Jim Taylor? Or maybe the "Dentist"? Can't think of his name.
September 09, 2008 14:38:12 Tony CR-20   Ok Chester...so you must know where Shinencock Bay is located on the south shore. I kept a 27' Pursuit with twin 250's out there for years. Fished mostly offshore for Tuna and Shark and Striped Bass in the channel. Many a good time but it got way to expensive! It's a small world huh?
September 09, 2008 11:04:19 Chester   Tony-Actually fishing in the city reseviors at night is very popular. Night time seems to be when the large brown trout are out prowling. I lived and run a business on LI for a number of years. The South Shore; Copiague. Had a bait and tackle shop on Merrick Road.
September 08, 2008 23:08:10 Tony CR-20   Chester...what were you doing fishing at 1 in the morning? Lol Actually, I have a similar story. When I was about 12 years old, my cousin and I rode our bikes two towns away to the "duck pond"...in Long Island. It was about 8:00 pm, still light out so it must have been summertime...and there we saw what must have been a million frogs trying to make their way to another smaller pond that lead to a stream. The sight was unbelievable as these tiny frogs made their way down sidewalks and gutters of roadways to make it to their destination. Stupid me, picked up a cardboard box and captured what must have been hundreds of them and brought them home. Needless to say, Pop wasn't to thrilled with the sight of these frogs and drove us back to the area to release them. Then I received punishment for riding so far away without telling anybody...don't know what I was thinking. That was 35+ years ago and I have never witnessed anything like it since. Berti and Grumpy...as for insects in the house, "kill em all, let God sort them out". That's what they make shop vacs for!
September 08, 2008 16:50:50 Chester   Story about frogs. One night a number of years ago my brother and I were fishing in the Pepacton Res. near the Barkaboom and about 1 o'clock in the morning we heard a rustling in the leaves. Literally thousands of frogs were scrambling through the leaves and jumping into the water. We could see the "v's" in the moonlight they were making in the water as they swam to somewhere. It was an amazing sight. Hundreds and hundreds of frogs swimming. Never see such a sight before and have never seen it since.
September 08, 2008 06:35:34 Grumpy Ernst Keidel Cdr_Keidel@Hotmail.com Went down to my little pond, yesterday, and noticed not even one frog! Usually there are quite a few. Did observe one tadpole smimming among my goldfish. Isn't this the wrong season for tadpoles? BTW, my home is a spider-friendly home! While I don't readily invite such creatures in, I don't go out of my way to harm them. They are welcome to all the flies and gnats they can manage to catch, although I suspect that my wife removes spider webs when I am out of the house! Have noticed a great number of small yellowjackets in my bathroom, lately. I mean, not just a few! They are usually dying and crawling around on the floor! One stung me on top of my foot, as I was walking nearby, watering one of my plants. From now on, the amnesty for insects is NOT in force for yellowjackets!
September 07, 2008 19:28:17 bertimouse   That may be fine with you Chester but err any spider is a dead spider inside this here home-We don't mind the black or green crickets,ants,a few flies,moths & the odd mouse once in awhile inside; but those spiders can stay outside to be beneficial! Thanks about the info on the green crickets;thought they were called something else but certainly hear 'em! What we don't hear much anymore is bullfrogs. We've heard that allot of frogs (both bulls & regular)are slowly disappearing from NY:they're very sensitive to pesticides...hope that's not going to stay true & they come back without (err) five legs & two heads. :) p.s. - How was your weekend? Mine was great-got rid of allota junk at Walton, the tomatoes are finally turning red,cooked allota Zucchini casserole-least we'll have tons of frozen stuff to eat this winter. Speaking of which; we're hooking up a backup propane system to run (via thermostat & a cool push-button remote) a big-used duel-fuel fireplace (wood/propane)& one of those propane heaters mounted on the wall like a fireplace-in case the power goes out. They say propane is up there in price now too, don't know about that,just need a backup (un-electrical & safe)system this winter. Have a great week & enjoy the nice weather, eh?
September 06, 2008 11:36:17 Chester   Bertimouse - You asked what a "snowy tree cricket" is? Well, he is a small feller usually less than an half inch long. Light green with transparent wings. The common black cricket is no where as noisy as the snowy tree cricket. He has a high pitched sound that is near the upper limit of human hearing. LOL. As to crickets being beneficial. That is true for most crickets although all of them will eat cloth and the Mormon Cricket is probably as destructive as any insect we have. The Mormon cricket is the "locust" spoken of by the Mormons that supposedly was consumed by sea gulls in Salt Lake City in the early 1800's. That is the reason you will find a statue of a sea gull in Salt Lake City. I too, have noted an abundance of spiders this year. While I do not care for them I think the Eastern Orb Weaver is a very pretty spider. (Commonly called a Leopard spider)
September 06, 2008 09:13:28 Chester   Bertimouse - Oh, I did not want to kill the cricket! I caught him. Admired him and let him go out in the backyard. I love to hear them "outside".
September 06, 2008 00:33:32 bertimouse   Before you respond Chester, Stop. I agree with you that you didn't want to kill this little cricket, you just wanted to shut it up, so it wouldn't disturb your speak or sleep? Please remember your own thoughts on-line. Softly speaking right now you are like that cricket, I think neighbor & like my Mom always says; a cricket in yur fireplace is good luck fur winter..the longer you have one the longer you will be warm! :)
September 06, 2008 00:09:15 bertimouse   Now listen here Chester, What the ell is a "snowy tree cricket" & why do you want to kill one of those bugs? Crickets are GOOD BUGS! In many cultures, crickets in the fireplace are a sign of good luck. In my own family (OK call us hicks)we used to see how long the crickets would stay alive [in our house near the fireplace]-The only bugs in my home that will be stomped on are those nasty "wolf spiders" that crawl up from my basement vents/cracks every year, err about this time seeking warmer cracks - Had 2 BIG ones show themselves so far in my bathroom & both are deceased by me. NONE of that type of spider has a very long life-span in bertimouse's house to be sure. But crickets? Crickets are ugly yes, but my cousin, favorite brother & good friend taught me about these ugly little buggers & I like them allot more than spiders.***************************************** Crickets are good bugs just like spiders, err. It's too bad Chester that you only have crickets in your house for 2 or 3 days 'cause my Mom always says that "Crickets in your fireplace means a warm winter" and I'm trusting the crickets this year, eh?
September 05, 2008 11:31:49 Chester   For two or three days we have had a snowy tree cricket in the house. He has done his best to entertain us. I searched for the little *CENSORED* everyplace I thought he could be. I finally found him behind a picture on the wall. Now it is amazing that a little fellow about 1/4 inch long could be as noisy and persistent as he was. Not only was he noisy but it was near impossible to tell from where the chirping was coming. Nature is amazing. In doing some research on the cricket I find that no two of them have the same chirp. But, I did not have to do any research to determine he was loud and annoying. LOL
September 04, 2008 21:43:54 Camoprint   =)
September 04, 2008 20:55:43 Chester   Bertimouse - If anything is going to destroy a carefully planned budget it will be the price of fuel. Both heating and fuel for the vehicles. Last meeting they mentioned they could not even get any bids on fuel. But, the price of fuel is destroying a lot of household budgets as well. Hopefully things will look brighter in the spring.
September 04, 2008 20:28:22 bertimouse   Guess I'll have to wait until they post the latest meeting report...Noticed last month allot of talk about the upcoming Town Budget...Craig says it's in good shape this year but that the Highway Dept. is looking at something like a 250% increase in diesel costs in 2009? What's up with that?!? -Very important MASTER PLAN MTG. on Sept. 24th, 7 pm at the Church for Public Comment...they said it's important that they here from us...
September 04, 2008 20:01:35 Camoprint   Don't run away from the argument Chester. You did say that you don't feel that arson is wrong if no one is killed.
September 04, 2008 19:59:33 Route 206   Masonville is a freindly place Chester. You are just A MEAN PERSON ON THE computer
September 04, 2008 19:59:31 Chester   Bertimouse- Sorry I was not able to attend the town board meeting last evening. I too, have been wondering if there is any progress on the cell phone tower. I hope so.
September 04, 2008 19:57:54 Chester   Now you folks are getting a tad absurd. LOL Oh well, you are good for the entertainment:) LOL
September 04, 2008 19:57:14 bertimouse   Er, sorry to change the subject here but how'd the Town Meeting go yesterday Chester? Any new information on the cell tower or the new bridge? Do tell. :)
September 04, 2008 19:53:56 Camoprint   R*ape is not a capital crime as it does not receive a capital punishment. Don't try to preach law when you don't even know it. And you just said that you think that if someone commits arson and no one is killed then they shouldn't be punished. Does this mean that you think we should go around burning down peoples houses when they're not home? Smart Chester, real smart. Lets hope that the local youth doesn't follow your immoral preaching.
September 04, 2008 19:51:03 Chester   Well, R*a*p*e generally is construed as a capital crime and arson certainly is if someone is injured or killed. Theft? Well, I have had items stolen twice and I did not involve law enforcement for either one. As to being a sick man with no morals if you mean a person who sees the injustice around us and speaks out is a sick immoral person than I am. I really figured you for a more intelligent person but you obviously did not understand my notes or you choose not to understand them. Either way the subject is closed between you and I. Besides you are spoiling the illusion that Masonville is a "friendly" place.
September 04, 2008 19:49:34 Route 206   camo, This person never stays on one subject. He makes it up as he try's to explain his meanness, it just gets worse. He always ends up saying the wrong thing, insults everyone. See what happened when he *CENSORED* me off by insulting people that we try to teach our children to respect. He said I threatened him ? "Watch it" is a Threat ? See he makes it up. He sits by his puter just waiting to argue with anyone who will read his mean words. He always finds a different meaning in what people write, and denies what he writes.
September 04, 2008 19:15:09 Camoprint   The censored word in that, would happen to be R*A*P*E.
September 04, 2008 19:14:20 Camoprint   You also stated "Other than a capital crime I can think of nothing I would voluntarily involve law enforcement in this day and age." Does this mean that you don't think law enforcement should be involved in Theft? Arson? *CENSORED*? I don't think you understand what a "capital crime" is. Either that, or you are a sick man with no morals.
September 04, 2008 19:10:16 Camoprint   But you still don't address the fact that you seem to go from a police officer asking you if you know how fast you were going to saying that they act like a judge and jury placing innocent people in prison. Are you familiar with our legal system Chester? You don't get arrested and thrown in jail by a jury for a speeding ticket.
September 04, 2008 19:04:43 Chester   Of course "nuts" (if you are referring to crazy) is somewhat like beauty; it is in the eye of beholder. Freud was asked for a definition of a sane person and he stated he "did not know but if he ever found one he would cure him." I have discovered over the years that any discussion is not enhanced by insults. I believe it was Mark Twain who said, "Never argue with a fool, onlookers might not be able to tell the difference."
September 04, 2008 17:48:00 Camoprint   How do you go from a police officer asking you if you know how fast you were going to saying that they act like a judge and jury placing innocent people in prison? I think the resident "Whatever?" is right. You are nuts.
September 04, 2008 17:42:10 Chester   I do not advocate lying or telling the truth to an officer who stops me for speeding. The answer to that question by the officer is no answer or at best "I am sure you will tell me". A law enforcement officer is not a judge and jury. It is not his job to determine your guilt or innocence. He is a presenter of facts. He presents the facts according to the statutes and then it is the job of a judge or a jury of your peers to determine your guilt or innocence. There could be many reasons that a law officer feels you are guilty of a crime but in reality you are not. It is not his job to determine that. If you were to investigate you would find there are many innocent people sitting in jails and prisons due to over enthuastic law enforcement.
September 04, 2008 17:41:34 Whatever ?   NUTS !!!!
September 04, 2008 17:35:37 Camoprint   How is asking you how fast you were going devious? That's like saying "Hey do you have a dollar?" to your buddy when you need a buck. If you have it, say yes, otherwise say no. You shouldn't say that you were going faster or slower than the speed limit if you really were or weren't, it's TELLING THE TRUTH. Are you a liar Chester? Do you promote lying to police?
September 04, 2008 17:20:20 Chester   I was not referring to whether a person is guilty or not guilty of what they are be accused I was pointing out the devious way the officer will get you to confess to a crime. LOL
September 04, 2008 17:10:56 Camoprint   Then you shouldn't get pulled over for going to fast in the first place and if you do then you deserve the ticket.
September 04, 2008 17:01:24 Chester   Camoprint as a matter of fact I do know some state troopers. Not as personal friends but, yes, I do know them. The days of "Protect and Serve" has sadly degenerated into "Catch and Convict" in this society. Why shouldn't law enforcement have the mentality they do? We have involved them in every petty disagreement that happens. People even call the police because they are unable to handle their 10 year old. Even the acadamies teaching our law enforcement teach them that the "arrest above all" they teach them to be devious and underhanded when dealing with the public. Ever been stopped for going to fast? After the officer asks for your license and registration (effectively handcuffing you as you are going no place without those items) he then asks "Do you know how fast you were going?" You being an honest citizen will name some figure obviously in excess of the posted speed. BINGO, you just confessed to a crime in the presence of a law enforcement officer. LOL Other than a capital crime I can think of nothing I would voluntarily involve law enforcement in this day and age. Everyone is guilty of something in their eyes these days. That was not always so but we have brought it on ourselves. As to kicking my (CENSORED). That is you privilege to attempt. LOL
September 04, 2008 16:36:31 Camoprint   Well then maybe it's about time. And as I think another resident once said "a boot in the *CENSORED*" for saying that Troopers "view everyone except another law officer as a slime bag." Do you even KNOW a state trooper personally?
September 04, 2008 16:04:40 Chester   camoprint I have not had a summons in probably 40 years. LOL
September 04, 2008 16:01:42 Camoprint   Chester, veiled threats do not consist of someone saying "Watch it!" which a clear and open indication of intent. =) Just don't get pulled over..
September 04, 2008 15:45:58 Chester   Rte206- Perhaps you should take the time to read what I said. I did not indicate I disliked State Troopers or any other law enforcement. I was pointing out how we use their services in the wrong way. And please do not use vailed threats in your replies. Opinions are not subject to threats; disagreement yes but threats no matter how vailed no. :)
September 04, 2008 15:16:39 route 206   Obey the law and have nothing to worry about ! When you pick on state troopers you are picking on family, and in the town of Masonville we have a few ! Watch it ! They are just doing their job ! Be grateful instead of hateful.
September 04, 2008 11:11:04 Chester   Rick I am sending electronic copies of both documents to your E-Mail address and will also mail hard copies to your snail mail address.
September 04, 2008 10:56:14 Chester   While I am fully aware that we need law enforcement I wonder if the way we utilize that resource is not wasteful of the taxpayers money. Why would we need a State Trooper sitting along Rte. 8 to hand out summonses for burned out license plate lights? Or why do we need to dispatch a law enforcement officer to a disabled motorist to harrass and ticket the poor person? We wonder why the attitude of Law Enforcement when they view everyone except another law officer as a slime bag and deserving of what ever happens to them. Well, one reason is the useless and foolish things law enforcement is asked to do. Over the years law enforcement has turned what should be a common effort into a "them" and "us" situation. Every law enforcement officer knows that the very things he or she will give you a summons for they are totally immune too. The very trooper sitting along Rte 8 handing out summonses for speeding in Masonville knows he or she can get in their own vehicle and drive through Masonville at any speed they choose and nothing will happen. Why? Because law enforcement has turned into a "them" against "us" in the eyes of the officer. This is too bad when actually law enforcement should be a community effort.

September 02, 2008 13:49:39 Masonville General Store Masonvillegeneralstore@frontiernet.net Hi Josh, Best wishes from the General Store coffee crew!
September 02, 2008 12:48:01 Grumpy Ernst Keidel Cdr_Keidel@Hotmail.com There's not much to refresh, CamoPrint! My knowledge of Masonville residents is limited to those who attend the town council meetings (tomorrow, BTW) and those who frequent the Masonville General Store and Crescent Wrench Cafe!
September 01, 2008 21:28:10 CamoPrint   And they've lived there for as long as I remember. You need to refresh your knowledge of well known Masonville residents Grumpy.
September 01, 2008 00:41:43 Rude   Its Josh, my parents live across the street from the quickway. My enlistment is up in February, and I plan on coming back at least for a little while when I get out. Hope all is well in Masonville!!
August 31, 2008 10:01:22 Chester   Today I feel honored! - I placed an item for sale on Craigslist and I received not one but three offers for the item. Each of them was a poorly worded and composed scam letter. LOL One even told me that they had already mailed a "certified" check but they had mistakenly made it out for $4500.00 instead of $150.00 so "pleze deposit and send the balnce to my mover." Worst part is is that law enforcement will not act on these and the FTC will only take a report, not act. I suppose if I actually receive a check it could be construed as mail fraud but I doubt it. Something really has to be done about these internet scammers. I do not understand how anyone, in this day and age, can fall for these but from the number of them around I gather that people still do. The worst part is that if a person actually falls for these scams and deposits the bogus check the bank will have the depositor arrested; not the issurer of the fake check. Oh well, I guess "a bird in hand is better than two in the bush." Banks, lawyers and news reporters; the bann of the earth!

August 29, 2008 11:00:37 Chester   Rick Moore- Sorry that should read "Two not To" LOL
August 29, 2008 10:58:34 Chester   Rick Moore - I have to documents reletive to Cord Wood at Gulf Summit. I would be happy to email copies of said documents although I am not sure how readable they will be by scanning and mailing by E_Mail. You would have been in the Gulf Summit area about the time I left the Deposit area. I lived in that area from 1942-1957 (My youth.) Have you written any local History beyond the one you published about The New York and Erie?
August 29, 2008 08:59:48 Grumpy Ernst Keidel Cdr_Keidel@Hotmail.com As a father whose two sons returned from Iraq, ealier this year, I say "Hi" to you, Rude! It would be good if you could identify yourself further. What is your connection to Masonville?
