March 25, 2010 09:03:13 Observer   My best wishes for a speedy recovery goes out to the young man from Masonville who was involved in the very tragic and needless accident that took place Wednesday near Walton. The woman who was killed in the accident was my daughter's very dear friend and a close friend of my family. My daughter was on her way to work in Delhi when she witnessed her friend being killed. Mrs. Bush died as my daughter stood beside her at the accident site. While it is not my job to lay blame on anyone, we have experts for that, it appears it was another of those tragedys we can chalk up to impatience and inattentativness. Folks please drive more carefully out there. Our highways today are dangerous places for the best of drivers. My wife drives from Masonville daily to Binghamton. My son drives daily from Masonville to Oneonta and my daughter drives from Walton to Delhi and then hundreds of miles around Delaware county every day. I do not want to lose them or anyone else.
March 24, 2010 14:56:18 Grumpy There was snow on the ground this morning. It is all gone now and the sun is shining!
March 23, 2010 13:09:59 Andrew Kenyon Lorenz, La Quinta, CA To any and all citizens of Masonville, N.Y. Do any of you have knowledge of where we might find records of our family history? My great-grandfather, James Monroe Robbins, was born in or around Masonville between approximately 1830-1850. If anyone has knowledge of our family history, please contact me at your convenience. Thank you.
March 22, 2010 07:47:59 Me   Well, We as a country are done. Healthcare will bankrupt us. We are no longer a free people. We are done.
March 19, 2010 22:54:46 Me   Funsucker.....25% is more like it. Blame Albany. Idiots.
March 19, 2010 22:23:38 Me   I didn't miss it at all.
March 18, 2010 21:01:15 wishbone   missed the message board welcome back
March 15, 2010 22:39:28 RangerDanger.   I see we're back in action.
March 11, 2010 18:49:56 Funsucker   Welcome back. How about that school budget huh? What's your guess on the % of increase 4% - 5% who knows. Our district has gone to the dogs:)
March 10, 2010 11:39:28 Grumpy The Message Board is functioning again. We had to take it down for a period due to abusers. We will not condone "name calling" and/or personal attacks. Sorry to have to perhaps restrict someone's "Freedom of Expression," but offenders may be indeed be "banned" from this venue.
October 01, 2009 09:03:33 CrzyFlea   Just wanted to drop by and express my deepest condolances to Judy; your mother was a wonderful woman and she will be sorely missed by those who knew and loved her. To the other two families who lost loved ones in the last two weeks, I'm so sorry for your losses.
September 30, 2009 17:36:33 RangerDanger.   I check this every couple days, and I must say this has gotten quite out of hand. Grumpy, perhaps you could speak to your webmaster about having "message approvals" if that is possible?
September 30, 2009 08:16:58 ScruffiesLove   Grumpy, I do apologize to you and the town for this "feud". All i can say is , as far as for me i know better and can understand the inconvenience to you and the people that use the site. I once ran not only a board but a network of chat for many years.. So i know your grief. I can tell you I will hold to what i stated before. I will not engage in any further debates not only on my personal life but not on anyone else for that matter. I never expected to have my issues place on the town board , it was not me who started it , but i am trying to end it. This board is not for that type of behavior. Again ,I apologize for myself. Far as the others intentions go I can not speak for them. I can once again advise my friends and family not to add further comment. As for Mr. Harris part , that is not anything I can control. Also, Grumpy on a new topic, it has been a while since I was involved with servers, boards and chats. but if I do reengage in its activities I would be more then happy to offer you FREE space for the town board through one of my old host. I know many who own server boxes. I will contact a few friends who still have dealing with this and see if i might be able to help you. I might be able to offer you Free hosting through them as a favor to me . This as i am sure you know, saves a-lot of money, you would then be just left with the domain cost. you could transfer the domain in to free DNS " Zoneedit" to handle all DNS directions. If this is something you might be interested in just let me know. I do not know how verse you are in stuff like this but feel free to ask me any questions
September 30, 2009 06:07:17 George Denys Why not just ban the single offender/instigator?? The rest of us can then continue to enjoy the service you provide in the spirit you have requested.
September 29, 2009 20:09:03 "Grumpy" Ernst Keidel You are correct, George! What started out as a good way for the Masonvillains to express themselves, became a re-emergence of the Hatfields and McCoys, no, the Harris and Nichols Feud! And all eyes look to me to do something, as if I were the instigator. Well, there IS something I can do - I can shut down this website and save myself a couple of hundred dollars and a lot of grief. Perhaps that would be a disservice to the ones who read this venue and enjoy it. Perhaps this site did have some positive aspects, such as announcing lost and/or found pets, salient questions or observations of things around town. Anyway, if this feud is continued on my open town message board, I'll have to shut down - the ball is your court!
September 29, 2009 19:24:02 George Denys Grumpy, This message board is again out of hand in my opinion.
September 29, 2009 19:01:27 ScruffiesLove Aka J Nichols   lol ,Laughing I agree. Masonville is not that small. Ang, Thank you for your opinion/comment, Not everyone is judgmental , without knowing all the facts. BTW On a much lighter note ..the mountain tops are looking spectacular. Fall has arrived!
September 29, 2009 16:23:55 Laughing   Ang WHOA< WHOA One or two people do not constitute the Town of Masonville.
September 29, 2009 15:56:04 Ang I can't believe what I'm seeing/reading here on this local Message Board, what an absolute disgrace everyone is doing for there so-called "Hometown". I personally don't live there, but I sure can tell you this I wouldn't EVER live in such a hell hole of a pit. This family will/has done more in there lifetime to help others than anyone will truly know, why? They don't tell anyone, they don't give themselves as a family that EARNED Credit, But My Family DOES, so Nichol Family keep kicking *CENSORED* :0). As for there Daughter Chelsea, she is a very confused, emotional, and was abused BUT NOT by any of the Nichol's family it was done by her Biological Family, she needs to get help, she needs to understand that she is mixing up her Biological Family who were nothing more than dead beats, drug using, and abusive Parents with the family that took her in, and jumped hoops for almost 2yrs. to give her something she NEVER had/gotten from her Bio. family and that was Unconditional love, a SAFE haven, and a chance to have a Childhood" she NEVER had or was given by her!! So unless anyone ACTUALLY knows what there talking about, maybe it's time for your little Masonville to just STOP talking all together and leave the Nichols Family ALONE!! If anything EVERYONE should pull together as a little community and try to help and work TOGETHER as adults,and STOP acting as children, or for that matter STOP upsetting the Nichol's Children, they ARE children, everyone else is supposed to be adults, so show EVERYONE'S children in Masonville, how to correctly help/deal with such non-sense, BUT deal/help in a positive way. I hope your little Community can come together, instead of tearing each other to pieces Good Luck to EVERYONE :0)
September 29, 2009 14:44:53 Laughing   That did not sound right LOL. The driveway is not plugged full due to a heart problem but rather due to a heart problem I cannot shovel the snow when the snow plugs the driveway full> LOL
September 29, 2009 14:43:09 Laughing   I love the fall weather but highly dislike what follows. I can no longer get out there and shovel snow when the driveway is plugged full due to a heart problem. I have attempted to have several people clear the drive for me on a regular basis but none of them ever last long. So, my dear wife usually has to shovel at least a path to get her car out and go to work. Maybe this winter we will be lucky and get no snow. Ya Think?
September 29, 2009 13:11:23 steammill   I agree i think this needs to come to an end and people need to stop being puerile, and take matters into their own hands.Instead of promulgating somebody\'s personal life. This is how rumors start people so knock off the middle school drama.
September 29, 2009 12:53:26 J Nichols   I am only going to make one post and one post only. I refuse to respond to any more stupidity ( that's just my opinion a tthe moment as to what this is.) This forum is not the place for my personal stuff, Doug Harris personal stuff or anyone's personal stuff . However i feel a need to address this at-least for my children, who at the moment feel that we are being slandered. #1 I was made aware of this activity by my son. Children should not have to read on a town forum horrible untrue things about their family or personal things about their family. The town should serve as an example. And YES children do use this forum. Family issues or even non family issues that effect peoples lives should not be placed on here. #2 To correct everyone my daughter (and this is the truth!) She made her choice to move out on her own she was NEVER at any point asked to leave or " tossed out " She left on her own ,even after she was begged by her friends and advised by her family not too. She was loved and cared for in any way a parent can love and care for a child . For what ever reason the rumors and untrue stories of how it happened is apparently going around, however for those of us who were in the home at the time, Friends, family, HER friends and friends of the other children, they can all witness to the truth, She felt at the age of 18 1/2 , my rules at home were unfair even tho still in high-school. She felt she didn't have to follow them any longer, She was your more then typical teenager who came from a abusive home that WE adopted. She was adopted out of love and was cared for properly. Just because a child is 18 doesn't give them the right to do what ever they want . Like any parent or decent parent you voice your concerns and your children may not always agree or feel their is a need for them. This was the case. She was not abused. The rest of the children in the home are becoming greatly upset over this and it really isn't fair to them! I should not even have to be coming on here doing this. I have no need to defend myself. However i will if it will make my children more comfortable. The other children in the home are being effect about this false accusation of the abuse of their sister. I don't care who tells me how i should feel. I can tell you how i do feel. Thats MY daughter, i love,her worry about her,and want to make clear she is welcome home at any time. We are here if she needs us, and always will be!! however there will always be rules in my home. The people that took her in happen to be her boyfriends parents. The boyfriend happens to be one of those things we were in disagreement about,. Enough of that topic i have already spoken about it way more then i should of ever had too, #3 Doug Harris is also not telling the 100% truth. I have no reason to lie, I am behind on payments of a mortgage. I am not a tenant. He did not rent the home to me. (I am not however calling him a liar, he sees the land contract one way i see it another) I have tried to speak with him ( again it is just not in the manor he wants or when he wants,. We do have a family to still raise. and we apparently have a difference of option how to discuss adult things.) He resorts to things like this and other outlandish ways i feel is not appropriate. We have fell on hard times and had un-expect events happen. My husband is currently self employed and doing his best to come up with work to support us. Do you all really think Doug Harris comments about us will help my husband obtain work.? Isn't that what is going to make us able to pay him his money? Which is one of his complaints and happens to be the only one that holds any sort of truth .Does that make any sence? Why would you look to slander the people that you need to pay you and warn people not to do business with them?. I will let you answer those questions. It is not for me to judge, not my motive. We maintain the property and the others bills pertaining to the home. Again, i have no need or feel I should have to defend myself. We have done nothing wrong as a family. other then income lose , If that is a crime , then sorry I was unaware. Most of the nation must be committing the same crime. If Mr Harris wants us out then ask your selves WHY this, and not the legal way??? foreclose? This way creates what? To me ,all i see is people getting angry and upset. I don't even want to be put in a position of libel. I am not out to harm anyone or discredit them. I have nothing Bad or Good to say about Doug Harris. #4 Last i can tell you everything other then behind on some payments none of the rest is true. I wish i had a reason for the false statements he has made .but i don't and i rather not assume. However, i guess you will on your own form your opinions. #5 I am Mrs. Nichols have been for 18 years . My husband and i have been togehter since i was in high school and we both graduated locally , I am a mother of 4 and 1 step child and a proud mother i love all 5 children. #6 To answer someone else question directed to Doug Harris. I am a local. My husband was born an raised here.. and i was raised here most of my life. We left the area for several years due to my husbands work transferring him out of state. when that job came to a sudden end, We moved back home to be closer to the majority of our family and our old friends whom we visited EVERY year. My children started their schooling right in the Sidney school district, that they have now returned too The question might be is Doug Harris a local? Summary: This was all unnecessary i made my statements and wish do not state anymore I will not respond to anything left on the forum cause it will only lead into a he said, she said thing and that in the end will hurt my children more then anyone else involved in this . Doug you have changed your E-mail i have tried to contact you via your old e-mail address however it keeps coming back un-found i been trying to contact you since Sept 3rd..( i see on here you have a new one however i will not e-mail to it because you have not personality given it to me and without your permission i will not do so.) If you wish to contact me you know how my email has not changed,. BUT I will not respond to you here as this is NOT the place for your private stuff and mine and my families. It is also unfair to the rest of the people in this town. I want to thank those who have felt the need to defend us. However i would even more appreciate if you no longer add to this topic. My Family and friends are very important to us. I would rather you all say nothing at all to avoid undue stress, and spare these people of the town the drama and rumors and gossip. but again thank you for saying the things you have . I apologies that this was even brought to the towns forum. I am also requesting that the webmaster remove this and everything pertaining to this topic off the site. I wish everyone here the best.
September 29, 2009 12:53:14 Anonymous   Chelsea left a situation that she did not want to be in. Bottom line. Knock it off. And it was not Matt or Sean that said this.
September 29, 2009 09:14:22 Laughing   This discussion about who is what and who is not should be in an attorny's office or court of law not on a public message board. Probably is time for the very generous host of this BBS to bring it all to a halt before more damage is done to these families.
September 29, 2009 07:45:53 christopher nichols   ok i vote that which ever it is Shawn or Matt who ever needs to stop spreading *CENSORED* ok Chelsea moved out that\'s what happened u think its funny to exploit someones life on the internet cause its really not my family arent bad people if u belive this stuff then go ahead but im just letting u know we really arent the kind of people that everyone is saying we are on here
September 28, 2009 23:19:00 RangerDanger.   I vote that we drop the subject.
September 28, 2009 23:09:09 State.Eight.   I believe the \"lovely daughter\" you speak of was thrown out of the house by her parents recently. And was treated HORRIBLY by them. She\'s lucky that she has another place to stay.
September 28, 2009 22:52:59 RangerDanger.   I've lived in Masonville for the past 18 years bertimouse.
September 28, 2009 20:45:43 Tom Barton Bertimouse - Congrats on thinking about your HAM License. HAMs provide a valuable community service when other means of communication are limited or non-existent. If you\'d like to see how a proper HAM NET works, come out and support International Rally New York. As you know, we hoped to be in Masonville, but that did not come to be. We are racing in Sullivan County the end of October, instead. My son and I just put up the repeater for the event. Excellent coverage from a portable repeater that could be put up anywhere for emergency comms. If you\'d like to come out and help, and learn about HAM radio, feel free to contact me or Rich - N2ZXK. Also - you sandbaggers - Other volunteers are NEEDED..... with or with out HAM licenses.... Tom, driver of Mazda 323 - WB2QPN -
September 28, 2009 19:42:34 Cupcake   well obviously someone has no life considering they like to spill someone\'s personal life out to everyone else which half of it i\'m sure isn\'t true.
September 28, 2009 00:13:25 bertimouse   Well, RangerDanger you just gotta be Here in Masonville. Grumpy is not what you thought he was,was he Eh&LOL? WELCOME TO PLANET MASONVILLE!
September 27, 2009 21:20:05 RangerDanger.   Got a chance to meet Grumpy today, I must say he's not as Grumpy as he tells us. =P
September 26, 2009 02:29:49 bertimouse   Dear Doug Harris:Please Calm Down&Get Yourself a Good Local Lawyer;sounds to us that if you'd done that in the first place you wouldn't be in this pickle now? -What do you want us folks in MV to do?Run a POSSE & A VIGILANTE group over to your place?You didn't mention what State/County these Lizards Came From:that matters to us&sometimes makes a legal difference. If You're Doing Business with ANYONE outside of Delaware County? -GET A GOOD DELAWARE COUNY LAWYER. -Sounds like you have"Tenants From Hell".We'll Pray for you Doug. Thank You for the warning us all about JENNIFER & SCOTT NICHOLS. Our Town Website should have a "Wall Of Shame" section of the bulletin board that posts/alerts us all to things LIKE THIS but,who decides what goes on or not?We would hate to add yet another task for our webmaster! :;)
September 25, 2009 22:33:57 bertimouse   We(No,I)am getting back into getting my Ham Radio license because my older brother in Colorado INSISTS I do this for the sake of my family&community.He's in the VFD there&after(recalling our 2006 Flood)he strongly recommended to me that Masonville "really ought to have an Emergency Ham Operator Program"like they do.Do we?-Am going to ""to learn more about how to get my license.Anyone else interested? Maybe we could start up a local Ham club?Does anyone else care about this type of Fun?
September 25, 2009 13:55:56 Doug Harris Thanks for your concern, Laughing. For something to be libelous, it has to be untrue. Everything I said is _provably_ true.
September 25, 2009 11:53:12 Laughing   Doug while our sympathies might run in your direction you are treading very close to libel. I suggest a good attorney.
September 25, 2009 11:18:23 "Grumpy" Ernst Keidel My condolences to our own Judge Judy on the loss of her mother! Polly Bogardus passed away early Thursday morning. She is predeceased by her husband Hank, who was my first friend on Steam Mill Road when I moved here ten years ago.
September 24, 2009 21:35:20 Doug Harris Warning: To anyone who might consider engaging Jennifer or Scott Nichols in _any_ way involving money or goods for services they _might_ render, be aware that this couple, individually and jointly, are thieves, liars and deadbeats. They are _supposed_ to be buying a house from us (at the corner of Rt 8 and Church Street), and they have a contract stating they will regularly pay us, every month, a previously-agreed-upon sum of nearly $1000 per month. As of this writing, in the year since they entered into that contract, they've made one -- O-N-E -- payment in full on time. And right now, as I write this, it's been FIVE MONTHS -- F-I-V-E M-O-N-T-H-S !!! -- since they paid us one thin American dime. It would be one thing if they made _some_ effort to pay, or even made _even a POOR excuse_ for not doing so. They do neither. Worse, they refuse to communicate with us -- unless we physically show up at 'their' door and we are fortunate enough to find them in. (If they aren't out earning money to pay their bills, including what they owe us, what ARE they doing??) One thing they're NOT doing is being any more honest with other people than they are with us. I just happened to learn a few days ago that Jenn Nichols (who may or maybe isn't 'Mrs' Nichols) has stolen money owed by her to a businessman for whom she was, if you'll forgive the term, 'working'. (That despite the fact that she's so 'disabled' that she collects public money and is supposedly -- according to her -- not allowed to take a job.) -- The long and the short of it is, STEER CLEAR OF THESE _DEADBEAT_ Lay-abouts. They are bad news.
September 21, 2009 22:02:44 RangerDanger.   Bah, I don't use rest stops. If I have to go bad enough to need to stop I go for a walk in the woods..
September 21, 2009 13:42:20 "Grumpy" Ernst Keidel No rest for the chubby! If you, as am I, are a corpulent male, don't count on relief at the Route 88 westbound Worcester rest stop. The urinals there have modesty panels which are too narrow for hefty males, who will not be able to reach actual urinal! You will have to use the handicapped stall all the way to the rear!
September 19, 2009 21:04:27 Laughing   $100 for a hunting license!!!!???? HUH? Does that include a porter to carry your guns? Nothing out there that I want to shoot enough to pay that much! How much is it for us old geezers?
September 19, 2009 18:20:13 RangerDanger.   Anyone else on here a little bothered by how its almost 100 dollars for a hunting license now? I'm not sure if I'll be able to go this year, with me having a 1200 dollar car insurance bill. >=(
September 19, 2009 01:15:16 bertimouse   Hi Laughing. We'd love to entertain you but we're going camping again. We'll speak again sometime this winter. :) Have a Great Fall to All that are Blessed who Live Here in Masonville, blessed because you can Slowly Watch the Seasons Change rather than racing up here & killing everyone you pass on the road with your big loads&ATVS.
September 18, 2009 14:32:43 Laughing   Come on folks. This board has been dead. Lets get a discussion going.
September 15, 2009 21:04:53 "Grumpy" Ernst Keidel Laughing! You can ask George DeNys directly; his name has an email hotlink on the home page. His phone is listed there aa well.
September 15, 2009 16:30:29 Laughing   CDR.Keidel - Do you know whether Masonville ever found someone to maintain their site? I know a time ago Mr.Deny was asking on here for someone who was willing to do that.
September 15, 2009 15:53:53 "Grumpy" Ernst Keidel Well, Laughing, this site is run and maintained by Bearpaws Webworks, as shown at the bottom of the home page. I just pay for it and tell them what to display.
September 15, 2009 13:51:26 laughing   CDR. Ernst Keidel - I do not know who maintains your web site but their censoring bot is set pretty sensitive isn't it? <grin>
September 15, 2009 12:24:59 "Grumpy" Ernst Keidel E-MAILING AGAIN! My computer wiz son Armin set me up with a G-Mail account and I can communicate again. I cannot access my defunct Hotmail account and don't have access to my address book stored there. I will attempt to contact as many of the folks on my address list I can remember and tell them of this scam.
September 15, 2009 11:50:40 Laughing   I have no idea what the SP might have set up a road block on Rte. 8 for but it sounds reasonable that if they were looking for a suspect they would be more interested in your windshield sticker. After all capturing a bad guy would cost money for the state while a bad sticker makes money for the state. And lets be reasonable. A bad inspection sticker is right up there with kidnapping, murder and *CENSORED*. In fact I place it right up there with my wife's burned out licence plate light for which she got a ticket on Rte. 8. I say throw the book at her!!
September 15, 2009 11:41:28 Tony - CR-20   Thank god your ok Grumpy! I received that email at 11:30 last night on my blackberry and was concerned since it was so well formatted and even had your Grumpy signature! I was talking on the Ham Radio to friends and explained the email to them and they informed me that the news ran a report a few days ago about the hoax. I missed that report but thank god they told me about it. I looked so real! Anyway...glad your home in good ol Masonville New York!
September 15, 2009 10:45:48 Laughing   You are a victim of an old web scam. I have not seen that one around since my days with AOL as a tech. I doubt hotmail will be able to do much. Your solution is to change your e-mail name and password. Don't forget all, changing your passwords on a monthly basis is a real necessity in this day and age. Beware of scams when you are asked for personal information or when you have been informed that you have won money, lotteries, or such and remember - you probably do NOT have a long lost reletive in Africa who wants to send you money. Beware of scams involving exchange of moneies in auctions and Crieg's List. NEVER send money via Western Union and do not accept cashiers checks. I have a cashiers check from Scottrade in a frame from a person in Florida who wanted to buy a microscope I was selling on E-Bay. The check, he says, was mistakenly made out for $3000.00 rather than $300 and would I please send him the balance after taking $400. $300 for the scope and $100 for my troubles. Yea right!! LOL
September 15, 2009 08:47:35 "Grumpy" Ernst Keidel   I AM NOT IN MALAYSIA! It appears that my email account has been hacked and is sending messages to people in my address book saying that I am stuck in Malaysia and to send money quickly! I am trying to resolve this problem with and will try to get a different functional email set-up. Meanwhile, DON'T SEND ANY MONEY TO MALAYSIA and don't get mad at me, please!
September 14, 2009 20:54:35 Grumpy Ernst Keidel Does anybody know what the State Troopers were looking for with their road block on Route 8 today? Bad guys? They questioned the strange appearance of my inspection sticker. I had my windshield replaced about two months ago, needing the stickers to be transferred to the new glass. Really makes them look tampered with.
September 13, 2009 21:39:59 Tom   Thank you Craig, for the address for the court.
September 13, 2009 00:59:27 Steve K   Looks like really close and nice community here. Good job Grumpy for keeping this forum up
September 11, 2009 07:04:02 Craig DuMond   Masonville Town Court....PO Box 63 Masonville NY 13804
September 09, 2009 23:30:22 RangerDanger.   I'm afraid that I don't remember the address from when I got my ticket (loud muffler). I'm sure one of the other people on here will be able to help you though, it should be posted up tomorrow or the next day. I shouldn't even have gotten that one.. the muffler is louder now that it is fixed than it ever was before. AND he pulled me over in front of a church. Made me feel like a sinner for not having an "adequate" muffler..
September 09, 2009 23:12:03 Tom   Ranger Danger Can i have the address of the court house so i can mail in my ticket . The address on the ticket is not clear . Thanks
September 09, 2009 21:14:20 RangerDanger.   I found a set of keys on Beals Pond road. There is two small matching keys and two larger keys. The larger keys have rubber grip things around the end. I figured they probably go to something important so I decided to post on here about them. Let me know if they are yours! It would be far easier to come pick them up, or meet me somewhere in town to get them than to cut the locks and replace them. Being able to name the color of the two larger keys would be a plus.
September 09, 2009 19:40:33 Funsucker   Thank you Laughing
September 09, 2009 18:42:16 Laughing   P.S. Funsucker go to they have thousands of frequencies of every imaginable agency.
September 09, 2009 18:39:50 Laughing   Funsucker I assume you are referring to Fire, emt etc? If so you will need 46.06 and SP is 155.655 dispatch. and 155.595. There is no special frequencies for the places your named they use Delaware county for fire and ems and sheriff dispatch and Sidney and Cortland for SP dispatch. There are frequencies for Highway Depts etc but they are business band and you probably could get them from highway department. Plus there are many other frequencies used by the SP. Also SP is a "duplex" system.
September 09, 2009 15:17:57 funsucker   Does anyone know where I would get numbers for my scanner for Masonville, Sidney Center, Trout Creek Walton area?
September 09, 2009 13:08:16 Grumpy Ernst Keidel I hope you are all enjoying today: 09/09/09! We won't have another day like this, date wise, until the tenth of October, next year.

September 04, 2009 16:44:28 Laughing   I have arrived at a scientific conclusion. It is a fact that the cause of the leaves turning in the fall is the passing of school busses.
August 31, 2009 16:45:29 George Denys   The trucks are parked up top out of sight.
August 29, 2009 09:55:40 Happy tax payer   Where did the army trucks go at the highway department ????? I would love to have purchased one if possible. I think it's great if the town can save money with surplus equipment!!!
August 28, 2009 03:16:09 Maria Wolcott   Grumpy - Sorry that it's taken so long for me to reply. We were on vacation in Maine doing some boating and fishing on Great Moose Lake. The weather was great and the fish were biting like crazy. It's beautiful country up there. You provided a good idea and I will use this forum to post my needs in the future. I asked around and was able to find someone to deliver firewood and plow my driveway this winter. So, I'm good for now. I'm looking forward to the fall as it's my favorite time of year. I love the crisp cool mornings, the changing foliage, baking apple pies and football.
August 27, 2009 23:03:15 Grumpy Ernst Keidel Alas, it is a shame that I cannot clone myself and be in two places at once! The September meeting will be one of the very few I have missed in many a year! I have a prior meeting in Binghamton at about the same time on 9 September. I trust that our Pam wil forward me the meeting minutes in a timely fashion!
August 27, 2009 11:57:27 Deyanne   Missing cat, Ivanhoe/ Mormon Hollow area, 8/26/09 Male white with black marking above eyes 1.5 years old, not neutered frightened, answers to Whitey, reward if found Please call Deyanne @ 265-9294
August 26, 2009 21:50:26 Craig DuMond   FYI to All - The Town Board meeting scheduled for next week on 9/2 has been cancelled. The September meeting will be held on Wednesday Sept 9th at 730pm.
August 26, 2009 15:19:53 Laughing   Almost want to make a person go in the corner and upchuck all the fuss about Ted Kennedy kicking the bucket. The news agencies are making him out a bit higher that Christ. They fail to remember he is a murderer who got away with his crime. The entire Kennedy clan is not worth spitting on.
August 25, 2009 16:22:26 Nate Looking for someone who wants to re-home a dog. I am looking for a medium to small dog preferably an adult female but that is not engraved in stone. I lost my companion of 17 years about 2 summers ago and am now looking to find a new friend. Am willing to pay a reasonable re-homing fee.
August 25, 2009 12:38:11 crzyflea   Rich, try in Unadilla on coverbridge road - Johnson's farm. If I remember right its 4 bucks a dozen but it is the best corn, hands down, in the area
August 25, 2009 08:36:37 Rick Anyone know who has the sweetest corn for sale this week? Having 50 people out for a corn roast this weekend...
August 25, 2009 08:35:17 Rick Yes the Sidney district. And old style turf has shown increased injuries- the newest surfaces such as in Norwich and Greene are actually lee apt to cause injuries and are comparable to grass with a crumble rubber added to the surface.Plus no pesticides-labor savings having to cut/ repair/ and paint before every event. I am sure that the school could also then rent the field to deposit/ sidney/ unatego pe wee football programs.
August 24, 2009 22:03:42 bertimouse   Dear Tony-CR-20, Thanks for that.Unfortunately we found out that now my brother has passed away-will this "death-year" never end?Gotta now fly to Colorado&all the happy end of summer plans are like dust in the wind.-Don't care now if it rains forever.
August 24, 2009 21:51:02 Bob Dunbar Rick, The Town of Masonville has four school districts in it. Are you refering to the Sidney district?
August 24, 2009 17:01:23 XX   Astro turf while cheaper to maintain has proven to cause more injuries, especially knee injuries than natural turf.
August 24, 2009 10:28:18 Rick Patterson We want the best for our kids. How come every other schooldistrict in the area is going to artificial turf fields and we still have grass? If we had turf,all the soccer teams, field hockey teams, and football teams could use the field. Right now it gets so muddy that only a few teams can use it. Other schools can make it happen- why not ours?
August 21, 2009 15:10:04 Grumpy Ernst Keidel Anyway, my computer is back up! My youngest son Will is visiting from Massachusetts and got me back online in a jiffy! Although it is very rainy weather, I am really enjoying having my boy about!
August 18, 2009 14:21:39 Grumpy Ernst Keidel Yeah, I'm at the library also. My home computer went down and I'm using one at the library. Of course this means that I can't update anything from here. I'm still waiting for the current meeting minutes, along with you!
August 18, 2009 14:08:59 Rich F.   Hi everyone. Why not stop by from your busy or chaotic day, to visit the Masonville Library. Melissa Parker or Rich Foley will be glad to see you stop by. Current Hours= M= 6-8pm, T=1-8pm, W= 1-4pm, Th=1-4pm, Fri=CLOSED, Sat= 9 to Noon.
August 17, 2009 11:39:54 Tony - CR-20   Hey Grumpy and the board...hope all is well with everyone. I too am thankful to you for providing us with the message board. Like Linda...being a weekender is tough on us to be with the fine people of Masonville. Give me 3 more years...until retirement...and I will be able to attend the meetings and such. Thanks again and be well! Hey Berti...I will miss your posts for a while! Enjoy whats left of the Summer!
August 17, 2009 00:56:54 Linda   Hi Grumpy, Just want to say thank you for this message board. I have been quietly following the sometimes colorful opinions. I am glad to have an easy place to read about the town meetings. If it wasn't for your page I would have a hard time following what is going on up here. I am a weekend resident and am unable to make the midweek meetings. It would be nice if the meetings would take place on a Monday so that many part time residents could attend, but atleast we have your generosity with this page. Thanks again
August 15, 2009 11:50:39 "Grumpy" Ernst Keidel {Grumpy - Would you be willing to add a "want ad/trading post" section to this website?} Maria, I will discuss it with my webmaster. Meanwhile, why don't you state what you need on this message board?
August 15, 2009 00:23:20 bertimouse   Dear Masonville Folks: Please Enjoy these 3 weeks of hot Summer Sun with some Fun! =Go Camping, do some Fishing, Canoeing, Hiking, Star Gazing. Go visit all the Fairs around, Horse shows, Auctions, Antique Car Shows & Rallies, Nature Tours, Museums, River rides, Antique Train Rides, Ball Games, Sunday Socials and Picnics that you Can! "Canning for winter" starts soon for us so we are officially "signing off from this message board for awhile,probably to the much relief of some here.Oh Well. PL&H to all.
August 14, 2009 23:54:29 bertimouse   Dear Me: We will entertain your last post with this one last response which addresses yours backwards-1)Snide&Superior?You Bet everyone thinks we are because we may be Better Educated&Currently have better jobs than most in this Town but it means Nothing in the Heartbeat of a Fire,Flood,Family Deaths or Whatever.2)Your comments that "There is very little these days to be positive about"..."It is not going to change much"...Are so wrong in so many ways.3)George (as far as we know)is the only board member that has the email capability,the time and/or courage to comment here;don't think we've read any other board member comments here except the Town Super once or twice.4)We have No solicitations with the Town Board.Your inferences are Absurd!5)Your solution to the Health Care Crises is "Other than the Obvious"- What Is The Obvious that you speak of "Me"?Please enlighten the rest of us, eh?6)Of Course You are "NOT SURE" what anyone individual can do about it. THAT'S ONE OF THE BIG REASONS THIS PRESIDENT WAS ELECTED.7)We will Not comment on this subject again "Me" 'cause all the knowledge is out there online for you to follow in whatever way you want to follow it.
August 14, 2009 09:28:50 Me   Berti - UH- If I can untangle your message I will comment. You state that I have done nothing positive concerning health care? Well, I am not sure what any one individual can do about it. Other than the obvious. I along with numerous others have let our representatives know our displeasure with the situation and the dubious solution that the Federal Government has come up with. I could sit here and offer solutions to the problem until I am blue in the face but it is not going to change much. You then lambast because everyone is not a cheerleader for Masonville and the Town Council all the time. I like Masonville or I would not be here. Does Masonville have its negative side? Of course it does. Every place has its faults. You state that no one is doing anything positive for the town except the Town Supervisor. Well, I think that statement may be a tad overblown and an attempt on your part to curry some sort of favor from the Town Board. I for one, have no problems with the Town Supervisor. Is he doing more or less for the town than any other Supervisor would do? I really do not know as I have nothing to compare it too. If he is doing the things you mention that is great but then again that is what he got elected for. You mention, by inference, that the only positive person leaving messages is George. Actually I have not seen much that George has left on this board lately except his explanation of why he voted as he did concerning the rally and short references to his tiff with the PR man for the rally. Is everyone in Masonville perfect, including yours truly? All one has to do is read the papers to find the answer to that. Is everyone in Masonville bad? Hardly. While I know very very few people in Masonville I would surmise that there are some wonderful people here. Am I negative about politics and politicians? Yep, I sure am. There is very little these days to be positive about. While I do not know you from the man in the moon you tend to come across as rather snide and superior. Keep in mind that many people are working to make this area better and you might not know about them.
August 13, 2009 23:03:46 bertimouse   Dear Me:Talk is cheap.Either put up or shut up.If you&yours are not going to be part of any good effort for reform on Health Care Now-which You Agree Needs to Happen-then what's Your Suggestion/Solution besides just Complaining about the current solutions?Dude;it wastes everyone's time having to read about Just You&Your's Negative Point of View Without Offering Any Real Constructive Alternatives!-Can't we brainstorm here about good ideas without all the "ME,ME,ME attitudes?"-Guess Not.Frankly,we have had enough of all the Whining&Disrespectful Talk about Everything that gets"messaged about"at this Message Board.All You Folks do here lately is give Masonville a bad public on-line image Not because of what you say,but How You Say It&We're ashamed.-All you do is complain&it seems that NO ONE Anymore in Masonville is trying to do anything POSITIVE for the Town except the Town Supervisor with his continued perserverance with Grants for our Town's infrastructure&his continuing diligence in keeping an eye on The Town budget,the 911 issue,the DEP land aquisition issue etc. etc.-but no one here[residents,not board members George]wants to talk about the good stuff,eh?Yall need to take a vacation. Peace!
August 13, 2009 10:13:49 Me   Who is "we"? Why would you assume that a person does not "care" about the "poor and uninsured" just because they do not feel that Big Government is the answer to every problem this country faces? This country has strayed far from what the founders pictured. While I agree that something has to be done to clean up the health care problems this country faces I do not think having a bunch bureacrats in Washington hand out socialized medicine is the answer. Let me ask you; what have you done to alleviate the suffering of the poor and downtrodden? That is, besides mouthing platitudes here on the message board. Your continued use of the "royal we" tends to make one think that perhaps you place yourself a step above us "commoners". This country continues to sell off the country to China and other foregin interests while shipping jobs out of the country thus manufacturing the "poor and unemployed" you are so concerned about. No, my friend, the answer and truth is not to be found "online" or in D.C.
August 12, 2009 22:05:33 George Denys Good one!!
August 12, 2009 21:07:54 bertimouse   Hey Bob Dunbar,"Me"&Anyone Else fearing about Your Own Current Health-Care Benefits:just go online&find out the Real Deal for Yourselves.We here care mostly about the un-insured poor who cannot&Whom Obviously You Do Not.Nuff Said.
August 12, 2009 20:30:04 bertimouse   Oh Rally Folks;there may be some good lessons learned & a few good jokes here: 1)Get some signed petitions from residents who agree with you next time to present to the Town;politicians can't legally ignore that kind of stuff&here's one joke for you&George:A man went to a brain store to get some brains to complete a study. He sees a sign remarking on the quality of professional brains offered at this particular brain store. He begins to question the butcher about the cost of these brains: "How much does it cost for an engineer's brain?" "Three dollars an ounce." "How much does it cost for a computer programmer's brain?" "Four dollars an ounce." "How much for a lawyer's brain?" "$1,000 an ounce." "Why is a lawyer's brain so much more?" "Do you know how many lawyers we had to kill to get one ounce of brain?" HA HA HA.-Unfortunately Rally Folks;it's just a sign of the "legal liability" times that we live in which don't get us started on that one...not worth the type.Gotta laugh or cry so 'yall know any more appropriate lawyer jokes?(Heh heh :))Peace and Good Luck Next Year.
