May 09, 2013 17:55:49 cunfused   Forgot to mention that he IS for clean up days! I guess stuff is starting to show up on roadsides.
May 09, 2013 17:26:33 cunfused   I called the highway dept. and left a message about clean up days,and got a big surprise!!!! You people must be calling the wrong number,try 265-3301 EXT.3. Mr. Smith called me back and said not this year, but at the meetings their was talk of certain items only to save money on cleanup days. His budget has money for the labor but the big expense is out of the general fund to pay for the tipping fee on the junk. The general fund needs the cash for this so lets go to meetings to show our concerns on these budget cuts. I think nobody calls to ask questions at the hwy dept,just guess and gossip on this board, facts not needed!!!!
May 08, 2013 18:55:59 Observer   Forever Resident - I presume I have as much right to live in this town as a "Forever Resident" (whatever "forever" means). I am just speaking from experience in trying to find someone in this town who is willing to do odd jobs. I had to pay someone $250 to come from Endicott to haul some stuff to the landfill. I would gather from your posting that you are one of our "more desirable" residents as opposed to someone like me. Old age and poor health can and does prevent some from doing such tasks themselves. "Forever Resident" I am not complaining I am stating facts. Believe me when I say I would much rather do it myself than depend on someone else doing it.
May 08, 2013 17:48:19 forever resident   Observer, maybe you should leave our town and live somewhere else, all you seem to do is find fault. Maybe you could mow the man's lawn and stop putting others down for being lazy! Not everyone reads this board,( a good thing, I'd say,) so maybe he could put a notice up at one of the stores.
May 08, 2013 16:34:54 Observer   Mike C - Good luck finding anyone in Masonville to do odd jobs. Welfare pays too well. Check the Pennysaver for out of the area suppliers and lawn services.
May 08, 2013 16:26:41 Observer   The Jodie Arias trial. The modern Roman Circus. The economy is bad, unemployment is high, people are dissatisfied and stressed and we have an emperor on the throne in D.C. So give the populace something to distract them. A juicy hyped trial will do it. Murder, sex, intrigue and some freaks like Nancy Grace and Wolf Blitzer to build the excitement and the crowd will become orgasmic and delirious and forget their woes. All we need is a few Christians and a few lions. But that is for a later time.
May 08, 2013 10:50:49 TX-1   Why so many back ground checks and waiting periods to get a legal gun,BUT if you have a license to drive,just take a school bus loaded with kids and noone checks any thing,whats wrong with this picture. Why are we so relax with our kids? cant trust anyone any more,dont trust no school bus driver,check out who that person is.
May 08, 2013 10:36:32 Mike C I am looking for someone to mow my lawn. I am on Beech Hill Rd. Please email me and we can discuss price ect. Thanks
May 08, 2013 04:42:43 resident   what? you missed the point of what long time resident was trying to get to with a litte work the town could get this done, We all know that the Highway Supervisor wants no part of it and once that road block is cleared in November maybe the board could have some productive conversations and come up with a solution as was posted by resident.This was the most positve thing I have seen or heard in a while.
May 07, 2013 23:42:13 what?   real long time resident, Maybe we need a few volunteers to help get rid of some of this 'junk'! I go to the dump in Walton a couple of times a month, if someone has some junk that is accepted free, lawn mowers, refrigerators,cook stoves, barbeque grills, car rims (no tire) etc., let me know on this site. I will throw it in my van when I take my garbage and save the taxpayer some money. I can't take a lot at a time, but I could help! Any other volunteers?
May 07, 2013 23:31:23 what?   C'mon Beri, the black man always gets recognition from the media. Look at our current temporary President, he is portrayed as a hero celebrity by our 'media' even though he has doubled the deficit,debt, doubled unemployment,(currently still almost 16%, real u6 unemployment), doubled the deaths of our young servicemen and women in Afghanistan in his first three years compared to Bushes eight, doubled the money spent on these wars, added a few more, Egypt, Libya, and a bunch in Africa. Gave all kinds of military aid and high tech weapons to terrorists, and he still gets a free pass, celebrity status by our 'media'. The only way the black guy won't get recognition is if he was a tea party member or a conservative republican like Kenneth Gladney and many others who were called 'uncle toms' or 'not black enough'!
May 07, 2013 12:36:11 real long time resident   Very disappointed to see that all surrounding towns except Walton are having cleanup days. It was a expectation of the taxpayer to have this in Masonville and has had real positive inpact on the Masonville community as some cannot get to the landfill and are counting on cleaning their properties and also help those who would not have cleaned their properties to get out and help make Masonville the quiet beautiful community that it once was. Disapointed to see that money was the reason. I feel this could have been worked out instead of having on Friday and Saturday and have to pay overtime to the Highway dept. because they work only 4 days a week during the spring and Summer months have it on a Tuesday and Wednesday to cut down the cost, Also have it from 6am to 4:30 pm when the Highway dept is staffed. I know they have road work to do then have it when they hire the temp summer help to offset the need to have the main crew overseeing the process. Now that we cannot also afford to maintain our cemeteries maybe we can use them to oversee cleanup days. All I am saying with a litte extra coordinating of the process we could get this accomplished and make Masonville a bettor place to live work and play. I do not recall anyone during election time state that this was going to be canceled so please ask you candidates this comming election where they stand on this and what solution if any do they have to meet the request of the taxpayers you will proberbly be suprised by what you here. Not complaining just trying to help solve a concern of many people of Masonville.
May 06, 2013 23:18:44 bertimouse   BTW? A Black man,who was a Resident:rescued the white girls.He was interviewed on CNN tonight.It would be interesting to see if he gets any Credit For It.HE SHOULD.U All Watch.The News Media are like Vulchers out there now.Ill bet u 100 bucks says that black guy gets Nothing&thats just NOT right.But IM JUST SAYING!

May 04, 2013 10:08:21 resident   nice weather this week, not much activity on the message board. Any good news around town? (do not care to hear complaints or gossip)
May 03, 2013 17:49:20 bertimouse   Hear Here Observer!Sadly most folks dont know thier rights anymore.The people only have power if they exercise their rights to use them.Still the optomist here though because someday things will get so bad the majority will say Enough is Enough,get off their Duffs&Do something about it,till then?Not,unfortunately.
May 03, 2013 11:30:56 Observer   I am 76 years old and I do not remember, in my lifetime, the dissatisfaction being expressed by the general population and as obvious as it is today. Not even the civil rights movement and the Viet Nam protests we are volatile as what we are seeing now. The undercurrent today is at the point of explosion. If the population of this country were not so sheep like and compliant to the government I really think we would have seen a revolution against our so called government by now. We are experiencing a complete disregard by our governments from the federal level right down to the local level for any rights of the population. We have allowed ourselves to be herded by the police and government officials to the point we allow any abuse to take place in the name of "public good" and "public safety". Much the same as pre-second world war Europe. i.e A man in Saratoga County was set up by the State Police and the ATF, (and he was set up), and arrested for attempting to transfer a rifle without a background check of the transferee. Over the past few years we have seen law enforcement become more arrogant than they were. They know any abuse of the population will be condoned by the government as long as they do it in the name of "public good" or "public safety". The person who did the Oklahoma City bombing stated that the children killed in the bombing were "warfare collateral damage". Our government looks at any abuse of the public as "collateral damage" in their "fight for public good and safety." The actual "terrorists" we should be worried about are not from some foreign country but right in our elected offices of government.
May 03, 2013 10:37:56 Observer   Yep residents can take most things to the landfill themselves unless of course you are one of the many who do not own a truck. I could not find anyone in this area who was willing to hire out to take some stuff to the landfill so I had to get someone to drive from Endicott and do it. Only cost me $250 and he did not complete the job. I have found that getting anyone in this area to do something of that nature or handyman jobs is almost an impossible task. I guess welfare pays better. Seems to me most residents would be willing to pay a small fee for the town to continue the clean-up days. Yes, I know that the clean-up days are abused by some but use the fees collected to have someone at the town garage to make sure people did not abuse it.
May 03, 2013 10:08:07 Jeri Brayman, town council   no clean up days, it was decided that it was not cost effective for the town and it is free for residents to take most things to the county landfill themselves.
May 03, 2013 07:17:00 funsucker   Was a decision made about clean up days?
May 02, 2013 20:17:46 resident of masonville   snowman, the clinic at Masonville for rabies is closer to home. Thanks to town council member for info.
May 02, 2013 07:40:02 Jeri Brayman, Town Council   free rabies clinic, Masonville fire hall, June 19, 6-8 p.m.
May 01, 2013 19:08:39 bertimouse   Free Rabies Vaccination Clinic For dogs,cats&ferrets on Thursday May 2nd, 2013 Roxbury Town Garage 52508 St.Hwy 30,Roxbury,NY 12474 6:00PM-8:00PM
April 30, 2013 12:32:08 me   snowman, ever been to a board meeting? New name on here thought you may be new to town and meeting is tomorrow night at 7 at town hall.
April 30, 2013 08:00:18 facts   all need to attend tomorrows meeting at 7 pm and get the facts, just ask and listen!!!!!
April 30, 2013 01:09:09 crzyflea   If I recall, in past years and with previous supervisors surplus vehicles would get purchased, repaired, and resold at a PROFIT and then that profit would go back into the town to help support the cost of road care both summer and WINTER. Think about what it takes to keep those roads nice and safe or reasonably safe in the winter. That doesn't come free folks. Don't knee jerk when you see a purchase of a surplus vehicle, yes, outgoing funds, but when they can't work roads cuz the weather conditions are such that working the roads would cause damage worse that there is, there's someone working on something (or I'd at least hope that if tradition holds true that is the case) and that surplus vehicle is replacing something rather than something new being bought, or it is being flipped to add more money to the budget for the town without it having to come out of the tax payer pocket.
April 29, 2013 22:40:22 bertimouse   Reasonable:I suggest Folks just make 1 phone call.There should be NO REASON to have to Attend a TOWN Get a Freaking Pot Hole Fixed,to get your TOM Hwy.Super listening to you.All ANYONE has to do is Just Pick Up The Phone. Stop witching like old Geezers B here! ENUF!
April 29, 2013 21:57:03 Reasonable   Checking out the facts rather than rant untruths, misconceptions and inaccuracies seems to be lacking from most of the uninformed people posting on here. Surplus equipment is not spent out of road repair money, there were 4 towns roads paved last year and more slated for paving this year. All one has to do is attend a meeting or, if unavailable, READ the minutes or Town Budget...all the correct answers can be found there! Geeze...its time people put up or shut up and stop all the misinformation on this site! I attend the meetings and they are very informative and the officials always answer any questions asked!
April 29, 2013 20:08:43 cunfused   If one happens to go to court and looks on the large table with the notices take a look at roads to be paved this year. Looks like half a mil will be spent this summer!!! Smooth roads are on the way!!! Question....the hwy. supt. lives at the town sheds????? Went over Foster rd today and the potholes were FIXED!!!! Last....stated several times that surplus trucks are not purchased from road work money,check it out at the meeting this week.
April 29, 2013 18:03:47 bertimouse Y8LEU So how did the Jump Family do on Sundays Benefit?The Music&Food were Great&silent auction was Awesome!Hope we made a difference for yall.
April 29, 2013 17:58:56 bertimouse   You can always CALL&ASK the TOM Hwy 607-265-4010 EXT-3 to fix any particularly annoying MONSTER pot holes like the one near me.-Was going to go up there&fix it myself Sat.but there was no item 4 left laying around to rake it back in. Methinks they dont always know WHERE THEY ARE until we call&tell em.Hope this Helps. :)
April 29, 2013 13:51:52 resident   probably the town board knows about rabies clinic, meeting wed.7:30
April 29, 2013 12:42:07 snowman   hello out there anyone know when there going to be giving the rabies shot in Masonville or Trout creek?
April 29, 2013 12:26:12 old timer   Long time resident that is not true Eldred, Loyde and Dwayne would keep our roads groomed if dirt and maintained if oil and stone the roads were never as bad as today.
April 29, 2013 11:44:01 long time resident   Those who do not like our roads, must be you are not that old or you would remember not too many years ago our town roads were, RMDS, (ruts.mud.dust,snow) at least 3-4 inches of something was on the roads and we learned how to deal with it. Slow down and before you know it the roads will be better. Remember, money is short and we do not want our taxes higher.
April 29, 2013 11:09:14 Who?   Enough on the roads they won't get fixed anyway. When should I plant my garden. Peas, cabbage what is good to plant now.
April 29, 2013 07:16:47 old timer   Mormon Hollow Road,LZF4Phere all my life and cannot get my roads right.
April 29, 2013 05:48:36 What!   Observer I cannot agree more with your statement whatever is left they will use to fix the roads. That is the firt true statement that I have read about the roads. There cannot be much left because I have been driving over the same pot hole and deterioated roads for about three years now,Maybe we can get lucky next year, I bet that if we dont buy anymore surplus vechiles we might get our roads fixed.
April 29, 2013 04:34:33 old timer   Observer it looks like not to much is left to repair roads. I havent seen one fixed in this town since they did parker hollow road, must still be paying for that one!
April 28, 2013 20:37:02 Observer   cabin fever - I think the half mil or whatever it is is not just for road repair but for wages, ins, benefits, repairs, supplies etc. Whatever is left is for repairs of the roads etc.
April 28, 2013 15:46:47 Old Fa rt   When is Shears rd been paved?
April 27, 2013 16:57:20 cabin fever   Hwy. supt. gets a truck to take home???? This guy doesn't take it home,its always at the shop at night. I think he must live at the shop!!!! Half million dollars for fixing roads,like to see that in print some where. Lots of misinformed info......again
April 27, 2013 08:07:21 ,mr   find out about clean up days at board meeting Wed. P.M.
April 26, 2013 23:01:44 fyi SUN 2pm   Wells Bridge Sunday 4/28/13 Bert Jump Family benefit, Sunday: 2 p.m., Babcock’s, 2220 State Highway 7. Ziti dinner, Chinese auction, bake sale. Jason Wicks to be featured.
April 26, 2013 15:29:37 funsucker   Is Masonville having clean up days this year?
April 26, 2013 14:58:44 old timer   Observer our roads are the worst around the tri county area you must not get out much around the area. So just to help everyone understand what was the 560,000 dollar highway budget supposed to be used for. If not to fix our roads what then over the last 3 years we have given this dept over 1.5 millon dollars in funding have you seen 1.5 million dollars worth of work done don't sit there and say we are complaining we are getting screwd we need to see something and we see nothing happening. It is not complaining it is fact that we are not getting what we pay for and if the Highway Supertendent is saying he doesent have the money where are we spending 560,000 dollars it is not on the roads These roads are not bad because of a bad winter these roads are bad because there has been nothing done to them in years boy I miss the old Highway Supertendents.
April 26, 2013 14:37:17 Observer   As much as one reads on this board about the roads in the Town of Masonville one would think we have nothing but plowed fields to drive on. The roads in town are no worse than any road in a rural area. I suspect most of the complaints are from those who bought or built on back roads for the "privacy" and "prestige" or "view". Now they want a daily maintained 4 lane private highway. I live on 206. The state maintained highways are not the best. Rough and potholes, poorly patched areas and crumbling shoulders. Damaged guiderails etc. There is only so much money available to the town for road repairs. When it is gone it is gone. Why not complain to the State about all the unfunded mandates they hand down to the local towns? Maybe then we would have money to do all you want with the roads.
April 26, 2013 14:21:50 Thinking out loud   If anyone needs a job they should run for Highway Supertendent good pay benifits, Vacations,Sick time ,Healthcare,Dentalcare, eyeglasses and they even pay your copays. Just go down to the board of elections and pickup your petition get it signed and run for a gauranteed 2 year job at about 50,000 a year. Company truck included.
April 26, 2013 12:38:36 trashed roads.   Thinking so you do not think they are working today.Why not. I am not complaining it's just that I saw a increase in my taxes and was hoping that I might get something for it guess I was mistaking,Who did you say was in charge of maintaining our roads?
April 26, 2013 12:06:15 thinking   don't know where you live, but there is more than 1 road in Masonville and the crew can not do them all at once. Go to the board meeting next week and ask some questions and you will get answers. If you don't go and ask, quit complaining on this message board, no one here has any correct answers about the highway dept.
April 26, 2013 09:50:49 Trashed roads.   Does anyone know if the Highway Dept is working today. Are they ever going to fill potholes. Who actually is in charge of this dept?
April 25, 2013 22:21:11 Ice Cream Lover !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   Maybe the Lil' old lady of the Ice Cream shop got sick of this BS from the town and the cold and the snow this year she moved down to Miami, Florida ????
April 25, 2013 19:11:56 ice cream lover   you know spring is here when we want ice cream!!!!!!!!!!!
April 25, 2013 10:44:54 :)   Need to know - she isn't open yet. Haven't heard when she is planning on openning. Haven't seen her there getting ready to open yet either.

April 23, 2013 19:48:02 bertimouse   There are a few roads around town that are in pretty tough shape.The TOM Hwy dept has been just patching em for years&they should already know&tell here which ones they are.Just saying.There is NO reason why they cant report that in the TOM that its on record,on line.
April 23, 2013 12:51:53 totaly confused   Me as long as my road gets the same service I do not care to talk to mr smith
April 23, 2013 12:41:41 me   maybe there are certain areas of state land roads TOM are responsible for, have you asked Mr Smith about this?
April 23, 2013 05:00:02 totally confused.   I thought that the highway dept. did not work on roads until May.Went through State land they are doing a nice job I hope the actual taxpayers get the same service as the state does.
April 22, 2013 10:21:14 Observer   Their = there :(
April 22, 2013 10:18:49 Observer   What has "fracking" have to do with the First Amendment? I have not seen anyone stopping anyone in Masonville from speaking freely about "fracking". Nor have I noted that "fracking" has anything to do with religion with the exception of those who worship money. I do not think the Town Boards failure to act on a resolution concerning "fracking" has anything to do with the right of redress of grievance against the government. Nothing has taken place as to "fracking" in this state so their is nothing to redress.
April 22, 2013 07:49:58 me   what, wish you had time to attend meetings they are very informative, just wish more questions could be asked.
April 22, 2013 00:40:36 what?   cunfused, I have posted it twice or more, some of the posters, 'posers' would rather complain and never show up to a meeting or click on 'current news'. I am not a member of the board, and I don't have time to go to the meetings, but it isn't hard to click on 'current news', or 'officially', for the minutes. It is easier to complain and cry (whine), and that seems to be the route some of the posters 'posers' on this site are taking.
April 21, 2013 23:14:34 cunfused   The list of 2013 road work plans have been posted on this board several times!!!!! Small crew equals spread thin to be on all roads,what road do you have issues with????
April 21, 2013 20:07:14 bertimouse   P.S. 1st Amendmnt-Protects freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and freedom of the press, as well as the right to assemble and petition the government,=Note the last One Yall. Petition The Government!
April 21, 2013 19:29:26 bertimouse   Very Interesting that TOM quickly appvd a Resolution number011 to oppose the NYS Safe Act,Yet still Refuses a Resolution against Gas Fracking.Both Orgs have No Plans 4 Legal Actions against towns proposing such. While the TOM is Resolute in defending our 2ndAmendmnt they STILL think=Clean Drinking Water, Air, Soil,Peace is NOT a Part of our 1ST Amendmnt.Really? Cowards All.
April 21, 2013 18:34:40 bertimouse   Im a CEO but no jurisdiction in TOM though a resident. Wont run till i retire lol a long way off.All small towns r feeling the pain-lack of state funds,etc.TOM does thier Best but should let folks know their future road repair plans more often instead of just reporting on what theyve already spent the coin on. Should at least have a road Priority List by now.Thanks&Nuff said.
April 21, 2013 05:52:15 resident   bertimouse if you are the CEO can you can my road repaired I havent seen a highway truck on it besides plowing and cutting trees in years.Hear you might consider running for office got my vote.
April 19, 2013 20:54:54 bertimouse   WE think about these Safety things-All The Time-and try to Enforce them(LOL)-so you dont ever have to. Get it? Saving Lives is Part of what I do Everyday. :)Thanks,TOM.
April 19, 2013 20:47:56 bertimouse   I am a CEO&resident of TOM tho have no jurisdiction.I AM One who Cares,knows&Watches&Volunteers&isReady when needed4Town Emergencies.I am one of the Silent(?}.Being a CEO is more Complicated.Many Legal issues.More Closely Involved these days with Law,Fire Safety,Ecological Depts now.Codes are changing next yr 2.CEOs&Fire Personnel are trained similar now for the Life&Safety of All.
April 19, 2013 20:24:05 bertimouse   A New York State Code Enforcement Officer-CEO-is reqd for every town that issues bldg permits in NYS.If the TOM issues them then they must have one.CEOs are reqd to be re-certified Every Yr w 24 credits certified by the NYSDOS,usually paid for by the Town Fire Dept budget because FD personnel needs similar yrly training&certs.If the TOM CEO is currently NOT Certified for 2012 then he has NO Legal Basis for Admin nor Enforcing Anything related to: Building Code of New York State(the 2010 BCNYS) Plumbing Code of New York State(the 2010 PCNYS) Mechanical Code of New York State(the 2010 MCNYS) Fuel Gas Code of New York State(the 2010 FGCNYS) Fire Code of New York State(the 2010 FCNYS) Property Maintenance Code of New York State(the 2010. Hope this Helps. Happy Spring! :)
April 19, 2013 16:25:38 Observer   If anyone wishes to see the American Gestapo at work all they need do is tune to any of the news channels on TV and watch the affair in the Boston area. Complete disregard of the citizens rights be they constitutional or civil. And, like sheep, most of the population is meekly going along with it. 8000 law officials and 3000 armed military is a tad overkill to look for 1 man. In recent years the constitution is important only when it applies to some politician or big shot.
April 19, 2013 15:05:57 looking   all properties are looked by complaint only, so if you have an issue make the call and stop complaining.
April 19, 2013 14:32:35 Observer   I don't know the code enforcement officer in Masonville but I do know that no matter how good or how vigilant the officer may be there is going to be someplace not to your liking. Just travel up Rte 8 to Rockdale or Mount Upton or pick any small hamlet. Everyone is not going to keep their property in the condition you may think they should. Plus, as I understand it the code enforcement officer can only act on complaints. He or she does not travel around looking.
April 19, 2013 09:49:23 concerned resident   joe has to be blind in one eye and cannot see out of the other
April 18, 2013 20:28:42 just a reader   If people have a problem with the code enforcer call him and report your issues and they will be checked out. Give it a try and see what happens, if not satisfied go to a meeting a tell the board of your concerns.
April 18, 2013 18:33:17 New to the board   I agree Joe is only here to take our hard earned tax dollars and only enfore at the least burden of his time.It's time to have a LOCAL CODE ENFORCEMENT OFFICER
April 18, 2013 18:11:05 JP   Concern Resident .. I think Joe reynolds is blind and deaf. beacuse he doesnt see or hear the tax payers ! or.. he knows and he takes his pay checks plus his kick backs from residents which doesnt obey the code enforcement. We shall get a real masonville code enforcer. kick old *CENSORED* joe to the curb.!

April 18, 2013 12:25:53 spring is here   Feels like spring is blowing in today, maybe this will bring us the spring weather we need.
April 18, 2013 00:21:57 what?   Thank you again Craig DuMond, for speaking up for our Constitution and for the good law abiding gun owners in our great country! And thank you to our town board for publicly speaking out against Gov. Cuomo's assault on the Second Amendment to our great United States Of America.
April 18, 2013 00:16:01 what?   So many people on this site are so worried about their neighbors mess, when we are a country in a mess. Worry about your own place and be happy, is that so hard for us? To just be happy in our lives and not complaining about a few neighbors? I love my little town I grew up in, if you don't, you can move to somewhere where garden gnomes are mandatory.
April 17, 2013 20:32:58 AZUCAR !   I think joe reyonlds is getting paid by all those lord lifes with those broke down buildings and fire hazzards and an Eye sore to our white trash red neck tooth less people town. we need to kick joe out and get a code enforcer. and some one who lives in town not a another two town away.. thats my opion.! just saying .

April 17, 2013 20:26:34 Old Fa rt   Just saying,there are a lot of old,broken down buildings that are a fire hazard,some one should get on those properties before a fire and some one gets hurt.just saying!
April 17, 2013 14:26:42 looking   Leave rt.8 alone and start on rt 206 east . East of Ivanhoe road on left, old barn falling down and house in disrepair, whoever owns this does not even keep lawn mowed. I think elderly lady who owned it passed a few years ago and now no one does anything there.
April 17, 2013 11:31:15 hello pot this is kettle   Nice to see nothing changes around this town. As soon as the weather gets nice the blow flies get out of their houses and start stirring up snit that isn\'t any of their own business and they certainly don\'t attempt to actually be informed about anything before they start flapping their lips. Do people honestly have nothing better to do than back bite on this silly board? Nothing to be thankful for. Lacking ideas on something to be happy about - lets try going outside. The sun is shining and it is a beautiful day. You\'re still this side of the dirt - that\'s a win too in some peoples\' book. And for the love of god, pull your head out of your posterior and try smiling. The world is a whole lot prettier once you wash the BS out of your eyes.
April 17, 2013 10:25:59 what?   Excellent article in the Daily Star today, "Sheriffs: New gun laws cost time, money." With comments by Craig DuMond. Thanks for standing up for our Constitutional rights Craig! And thanks to the 15 Sheriff's Associations,413 Sheriffs across the country, 8 in NY, (the list is growing daily) who publicly oppose Obama and Cuomo's gun restrictions.
