March 03, 2013 22:29:20 what?   One, who said not to license dogs? I'm just saying the money isn't being used for it's intended purpose. Two "sell your pups and make your money back"? Pups don't have to be licensed until they are over four months of age, hopefully breeders sell them before then. Are you advocating that the Govt. makes money off the people for their hard work and investments? Isn't taxes enough? "if you are a breeder it may cost you a lot but if you sell pups you can make your money back." Dirty Liberal Democrats!
March 03, 2013 21:05:42 reader   why not just license the dog and get it over with, if you are a breeder it may cost you a lot but if you sell pups you can make your money back.
March 03, 2013 13:31:23 what?   A few states say they will not abide by Obama's new gun ban, they said why should they?, there is many laws that Obama will not let them enforce, Obama will not let these states obey many laws concerning illegal immigrants. Why don't they license cats, horses,cows,ferrets,goats? Because there used to be a reason to license dogs, now it just gives Government Bureaucracy more of our money.
March 03, 2013 12:56:44 wow!   curious maybe we should give the state more money in fines then they can take our ammo.
March 03, 2013 12:38:45 curious   Back to the point , dogs need to be licensed, it is the law. Maybe there needs to be a fine for not getting the job done.
March 03, 2013 10:14:42 what?   Doesn't stop them from running around. Any unlicensed dog that is picked up by the warden must be licensed before it is returned, but doesn't stop them from running around. Might help rabies because it is required. Mostly just gives Government bureaucracy more of our money. Dog licensing dates back to 1894 when it was started to help pay for dogs that damaged or killed farm animals including chickens. Is this what it is used for today? Or is our Govt. just taking our money?The Dept. of Ag. says "(since 1894) the need for livestock indemnification, as well as the concern for rabies in dogs has diminished significantly."
March 03, 2013 08:32:49 masonville resident   If they are licensed you would know who they belong to and who they may have been in contact with.m
March 03, 2013 00:35:01 what?   Who said not to obey the law? What part of dog licensing keeps them from running around or getting rabies?
March 02, 2013 12:41:44 try it   YES, stop licensing dogs and see how many are running around and see how many are chasing our pets and end up with rabies. Why not just license the dog and obey the law.
March 02, 2013 12:31:49 what?   I bet the state makes more off dog licensing than our town, the town pays for everything to do with it now and the state expects a cut.And for what? reason? What do they need more of our money for? Dog licensing was started to pay for damage done by dogs to farmers livestock, not to make money. If they aren't using the money for this reason anymore, then they should stop taking our money.
March 02, 2013 11:25:25 interested   yes the town is to make money on licenses, have you checked the price charged, most people have not done so and therefore have not licensed their dogs, and they were due Jan 1.
March 02, 2013 09:16:55 what?   I know how some people afford pets,welfare, they rely on the hard working taxpayer to feed their children candy bars, potato chips and soda, while they set on their but ts petting their multiple dogs and cats.
March 02, 2013 09:10:02 what?   When all over the state, towns are overriding the 2% tax cap, why is idiot Cuomo on TV commercials bragging about instituting the 2% cap?
March 02, 2013 09:03:10 what?   Dog licensing was originally started to pay farmers reparations for livestock damage done by dogs, not to profit off dog owners. Besides that I don't think the town makes any money off it anyway. It used to be run by the state, now it is a unfunded mandate the town and cities must pay for it themselves, and then give a chunk of it to the state.
March 02, 2013 08:09:22 citizen of TOM   very true, but there are those who have 8-10 dogs and will not even license them , and the town is supposed to make money on dog licenses but no one does anything about it!!!
March 02, 2013 07:17:40 overtaxed.   I know what you mean old *CENSORED* i got destroyed in taxes this year. Town board overrides 2% increase did not hink about the working people. County over rides 2% tax cap. Means more people on social services can get cell phones and ride from dept of social services to buy beer and cigaretts. New york state wants my guns. Obama wants my guns. I have been living on cereal and oatmeal because of these tax increases. Is still bettor than answering to the county for money. Who can afford to feed a pet?
March 01, 2013 18:11:57 Old Fa rt   Not all of us make the kind of money some people here makes and can afford the best for their pets,us regular citizens,just cant feed our pets the best,most of our income is going towards taxes.
March 01, 2013 13:12:05 Observer   I am feeling despair after watching, briefly, court proceedings on TV. The conclusion is that USA justice is no better; and probably worse, than the rest of the world. Defendants are considered guilty as soon as they have any interaction with law enforcement. Then if they are arrested they are tried and convicted in the court of public opinion and if interesting enough they are then tried, convicted, retried and reconvicted at least 100 times by TV. We tell the defendant he or she is considered innocent until proven guilty in a court or by a jury of his or her peers; but yet we will keep the "innocent" defendant in prison for 5 or 6 years awaiting his or her day in court. Justice is no better than the shyster one can afford. If you cannot afford a shyster on your own then the court will appoint one. Generally the Public Defender and that Public Defender is only interested in his or her paycheck and the person they are supposedly representing plead to some charge; guilty or not. It is a good thing intelligence is not a requirement for lawyers, judges and law enforcement. If it were we would not have anyone in those positions. Any shyster will defend a person to the limit of that persons finances. Then that person is on his or her own.
March 01, 2013 12:54:33 Who!   Does anyone know if if some got hurt in the car that was on its side in the ditch on steam mill this morning?
March 01, 2013 07:57:44 curious dog owner   snowman, can you add eggs to young pups diet? Have you ever done this? maybe if you have one or two dogs you have not seen any reaction, but what if it is a nursing mom?
Febuary 28, 2013 17:00:10 snowman   Best thing you could do for your puppy/dog food is add eggs. there high in protein and fat you will see a big change in there overall look and health.
Febuary 27, 2013 23:54:12 concerned   You are right , if you have pets take the best of care of them. They depend on us for their care and should always have whatever they need.
Febuary 27, 2013 22:27:24 Pamela Walker I have 5 very large dogs and only feed them the best Please don't go cheap and you can only imagine what my dog food cost they are part of my family and they deserve good food.
Febuary 27, 2013 14:21:56 Resident   Thanks crzyflea I hope the truck last a long time and also hope Carrol got her gear.
Febuary 27, 2013 05:47:41 crzyflea   Resident, take a look at the meeting minutes for january, bullet 5 on the super's report. Looks like the town got a grant. Maybe that is what covered it (and hopefully the turnout gear that Carol mentioned)
Febuary 26, 2013 14:01:46 Resident   I see we brought a new fire truck does anyone know what the cost was? I drove by the town shed this morning and saw it.Will it be in service in town?
Febuary 25, 2013 23:52:12 what?   FYI, I have recently learned 'Jake's Place' in Walton has closed it's doors, not enough business thanks to corporate America, just like Blue Seal in Bainbrige, Afton.
Febuary 25, 2013 22:56:31 what?   I bet PETCO is supportive of all you want them to be, they need your dollar just like all the mom and pop stores that are in the area, PETCO has over a thousand stores coast to coast. I go for the bottom dollar also, that is why with my adult dogs I go against what I preach and shop at Wally Mart and Tractor supply, I bought the 'good' stuff when they were little at the mom and pops. The mom and pop stores I recommended have the same high end dog food natural, holistic and organic dog food that PETCO advertises at pretty much the same price and you don't have to spend the liquid gold (gas). FYI, also, PETCO in Johnson City September 2011 failed to evacuate its animals during tropical storm Lee. 100 animals drowned when staff failed to move them to safety.Petco claimed that the casualties were caused by a backup in the store's drain/sewage line, and not by the flooding that had submerged the store with four feet of water.Johnson City Mayor Dennis Hannon has called Petco's initial claims "absurd", and stated that "With all the flood warnings and evacuation orders that were issued, for them not to go down there is just absolutely disgusting",he also said "“If someone was aware that those animals were in danger and didn't take the appropriate action to remove them to safety then that is a crime under New York State Law” and charges could be filed against management, he said, adding that some employees asked to take the animals home and been told they could not. The employees were told they could not take the animals home, which may have saved their lives, 100 of them.
Febuary 25, 2013 11:34:25 new to area   I understand that petco is very supportive of dog breeders, is this true?
Febuary 24, 2013 19:08:25 bertimouse   Some Puppy Chrunchies cause bad effects at 2.5-3.5 months old Pups because of the amount of Protein & Snap with a C in them. Just when their growth rate spurts Big Time. We've known 2 Pups so far in the last 3 yrs where this has happened. A different diet always cures it. Hope this Helps hey. :)
Febuary 24, 2013 17:59:46 listener   does not pay to feed any baby animals cheap food, you get what you pay for. Although I have heard nothing but good about petco.
Febuary 23, 2013 23:20:30 what?   Ohh, I remember now, it was Diamond brand Large Breed Puppy, Lamb and Rice, much cheaper than Eukanuba, but still, No Wheat, No Corn, No Soy. Puppy's po op all that out in cheap dog food.
Febuary 23, 2013 23:11:00 what?   I personally don't shop at petco, I do stop once and awhile to look at the birds,fish,varmints with my kids. I buy dog food from Tractor Supply (retriever brand)or Wal-Mart, I think both are just as good as Pedigree at a fraction of the price. If you are dealing with a puppy, spend the money. Eukanuba, or a alternative. The guy at Brandow's 'feed and seed'in Walton had many that were as good as Eukanuba, but cheaper (I started my first pup on Eukanuba even though it cost more than I was spending to feed myself) I can't remember the name of it, but if you use a good quality feed for a pup, they only c rap once a day, much easier to house train! It is worth the price because once they get a little bigger you can switch them to something cheaper, they don't eat much when they are small, do yourself a favor and feed them the best when they are pups. like I said they po op once a day.
Febuary 23, 2013 19:16:38 pet owner   Is petco good for puppy food?
Febuary 23, 2013 12:00:08 Observer   I buy all my wild bird supplies at Agway in Binghamton. All my dog food at Sam' Club or Tractor Supply. I do not buy any wild bird food locally as it is not a good mixture. 99% millet and attracts only sparrows and starlings; and locally it is much more expensive and poor selection.
Febuary 23, 2013 10:26:59 what?   If you want to help local business, McDowell Walker in Sidney,Brandow's feed and seed, or Jake's Place in Walton are all good places to go, they have everything you need and excellent friendly service. I haven't been there but there is 'The Houndstooth Bakery and Boutique' between Bainbridge and Afton.
Febuary 23, 2013 07:55:18 pet lover   does anyone shop at petco? have heard it is a good place to shop for our 4 legged friends.
Febuary 22, 2013 12:04:48 Grumpy Ernst Keidel Neita\'s got ANOTHER birthday? Good Grief! I certainly wish her a happy one and look forward to seeing her at the next town council meeting.

Febuary 22, 2013 07:25:53 Lee Ann Munholand   Wishing the "Mayor of Masonville", Ms. Neita VanValkenburg a very Happy Birthday. From your friends in sunny Florida.
Febuary 21, 2013 18:43:47 Observer   Enjoy the cold weather a lot more if I were hearing of it from Bermuda or Hawaii.
Febuary 21, 2013 18:20:09 snow lover   Is everyone enjoying this wonderful cold weather?
Febuary 20, 2013 18:52:31 Me   Answer it sounds like the property owners are footing the bill for the towers if I am correct there are 8 of them. What does the 911 tax that is collected by the county pay for. That tax is on every phone bill wether it is a land line or cellphone.
Febuary 20, 2013 18:23:17 Answer   The system has to be upgraded to comply with the federal government. The frequencies all have to be changed to comply with the feds or they will discontinue the frquencies and take it off line. Bottom line, if they (county) dont comply they will lose all radio communications. Another lovely unfunded mandate by clowns like King Obama and Prince Cuomo. What BS!!!
Febuary 20, 2013 16:36:13 Who   Does anyone know why they are updating a system that works in a time when unemployment is high. Is this going to increase the response time. If by how much. Let take A look at the overall picture. They raise our taxes, Obama care, gun control. Are you sure that this is not germany 1935?
Febuary 20, 2013 16:24:02 Snow lover   We made it through another small snow storm and all is well in Masonville!!
Febuary 19, 2013 19:03:56 Me   Answer is this being Paid for with the91 1 tax on our phone bills or is the county socking us for more tax on our land tax. It sounds like the taxpayer is getting it again
Febuary 19, 2013 18:25:08 Answer   The tower you speak of being put up on pine hill is for an update to the emergency communications system (I believe) and has nothing to do with cell phones. Only the radios the police and fire departments use...
Febuary 19, 2013 18:03:27 crzyflea   top of steam mill just before full into the woods after the seasonal stretch starts, spotty off and on along cr 20, up on teed and randal hills you can sometimes get it too. A lot of if you get it will depend on provider and how 'smart' of a phone you have. if you have a 'smart' one it may pick up and boost signal off someone's wifi, especially if you are getting signal where you didn't before. Heck, overcast conditions can alter how much signal you get. I get better signal out in state land than I do in town though.
Febuary 19, 2013 11:24:31 Old Fa rt   You can get service on Shears,by the 4 corner,also at the druggie spot.dont know how cause there is no tower around.
Febuary 19, 2013 09:38:22 Observer   If memory serves me correctly at the time the fuss arose about the tower in Walton there was a company looking at installing a tower in Masonville but due to the fuss in Walton the company withdrew their plans for a tower here. I also know something changed in the last couple of years. We were not able to send or receive where I live but in the last couple of years we have very good service. I have not changed phones or companies in that time so I do not really know what the change was. All I know it was for the better.
Febuary 19, 2013 08:01:42 what?   Did TOM ever refuse to put one in? I know in Walton some people protested theirs as being a eyesore. You can't even see that one unless your behind the Dollar General by the river, not visible from their houses.
Febuary 19, 2013 07:58:01 what?   Voter, you asked where I got my info from, what? info. I just mentioned it would be nice if TOM had a tower. I already know we don't have one. You say they are putting one on Pine Hill, well that might give us a little more service.It would be nice if one of the cell companies looked at TOM for a tower, "can you hear me now".
Febuary 19, 2013 00:04:03 Voter   What? More do you need they are putting towers in half the towns in the county except masonville. Makes you wonder why nobody in masonville knows about it don't you think
Febuary 18, 2013 23:31:21 what?   Resident; Douglas xtra trac II 195/70r14 $55 a piece at WalMart, a few years ago they where only $35 a piece, but everything goes up with a Democrat in office. All season, buy them at the start of winter brand new, I don't rotate them,just buy new for the front every winter, and new to the back when necessary, usually every two years, sometimes three, and I drive that vehicle about 35 miles a day five days a week. For my van 215/70R15 there is about a dozen options at Sears, Kmart, Sidney tire, at less than $112 a piece. I buy mine at Kmart when I see the 'buy three get one free'! That's 'Good Year' 70,000 mile warranted tires at $84 a piece or less than $350 for the vehicle, been driving on them two years now and hope to get a third. My truck, paid $200 dollars for a set of four HUGE nice knobby tires of Craigs list, did I pay NY tax on them, who cares it was already paid once how many times do you think we should pay the Govt? I'm not going to be dumb and spend more on tires that they are worth, and I'm not going to be dumb and drive through the same pothole everyday and complain.
Febuary 18, 2013 23:28:21 what?   Voter; HUH, a little more info would be nice.
Febuary 18, 2013 23:25:52 Voter   What? Where do you get your information from the Delaware county sheriffs dept is requestiing bids to instal a 80\' tower on pine hill road just over the masonville town line in Sidney .it appears that the town of masonville got it done to them again .ce on people lets pay attention.
Febuary 18, 2013 23:23:54 Voter   What? Where do you get your information from the Delaware county sheriffs dept is requestiing bids to instal a 80' tower on pine hill road just over the masonville town line in Sidney .it appears that the town of masonville got it done to them again .ce on people lets pay attention.
Febuary 18, 2013 22:39:05 what?   mark, that would be nice, a cell tower in TOM. It's pretty much a dead zone.
Febuary 18, 2013 21:17:15 mark   can someone tell me why we don't have a cell tower servicing Masonville?
Febuary 18, 2013 19:37:17 Resident   What I think you are full of it what are ou running 13" tires. Are you are not buying them in new York and are cheating your state out of the taxes
Febuary 18, 2013 19:08:02 what?   I own three that I paid half that for apiece and they all pass inspection. I pay about $35-$80 a tire through WalMart or online. I bet everybody in Masonville travels on it's roads, the majority of them State and County roads. If you travel these roads often you should know where the rough spots, potholes are and avoid them or slow down. I'm not going to let a few potholes ruin my vehicle or my day.
Febuary 18, 2013 17:03:59 What!   What? There are not many 2500$ cars in masonville that would Pass inspection. What? How many people are employed in Masonville and do not travel? There is no such thing anymore you also will need a 1000$ worth Of tires due to new York tax
Febuary 18, 2013 16:04:30 what?   Apparently 'Anoter broke residentI' isn't that broke. You might be driving over $25,000 vehicles, but 'we' are driving under $2,500 vehicles. What!; thank Obama for what? 14 million unemployed, 8.5 million jobs have disappeared since Obama was elected in '08,welfare expenditures have doubled to a $trillion a year. Higher health insurance costs due to Obamacare. Thanks Obama!
Febuary 18, 2013 15:58:33 What!   I don't know why but I spelled Cuomo and it censored the name
Febuary 18, 2013 15:09:54 What!   So I say let's thank Obama and *CENSORED* what the hell they get Payed and they are doing a good no!
Febuary 18, 2013 13:27:52 voter   If the words thank you and nice job hurt that much I really hope no one ever thanks you for anything in life. Yes it is their job but a little praise goes a long ways.
Febuary 18, 2013 09:22:59 Anoter broke residentI   Masonville resident I am from masonville I agree we do not need to praise the workers they are paid well. Rember we are driving vechiles worth over 25,000$ on roads that are destroying the vechiles.we payed sales tax license tax gas tax and land tax. If they don't start giving us what we pay for witch is in the thousands of dollars we as voters should start looking for people who care more about the people who pay their salaries are start looking for other work. We are Paying 2013 bills and you want the workers to have a 1972 attitude. Resident come On and catchup to what Is going on with how much we are taxed and what we get!
Febuary 16, 2013 22:46:11 what?   Anyone else notice that any time a tragedy happens that involves a firearm the news attacks the right. "I wouldn't be surprised if a Tea Party member or a right wing extremist was involved." It turns out every indecent lately was done by left wing Democrat Liberal nuts, the ones who want to ban guns! I say ban all democrats and liberals.The left wing media rushes to blame Rush, Beck, Sarah Palin etc. for some of these killings recently. When it was learned they were Liberals, inspired by Liberalism, not a peep is reported on that. Mayor Michael Bloomberg falsely blamed the 2010 Times Square jihad bomb plot on tea party activists protesting Obamacare. Bloomberg never gave them a apology after smearing them for something they had no part of. Theodore Kaczynski, Unabomber, pro-tree hugger, anti-oil and energy companies. In CA, Christopher Dorner went on a rampage killing innocents after posting lefty screed on Facebook, praising lefty “journalists”.At Ft.Hood, Muslim Army captain, Hasan, reg’d Democrat.Columbine, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, unregistered, but parents were reg’d Democrats.VA Tech shooter, Ross Ashley, reg’d Democrat (sent hate mail to Pres. Bush).In AZ, Jared Lee Loughner who shot Congresswoman Gifford voted Dem. (registered Independent).Aurora, CO, theatre shooter, James Holmes, reg’d Democrat (former OWS radical).In DC, Floyd Corkins opens fire at the Family Research Council (on the right) after reading a “hate map” posted by the Southern Poverty Law Center (on the left).Oklahoma City, bomber, Timothy McVeigh (militia member but family were union Democrats).Hollywood, Charles Manson, not pol affiliated, but his followers were Democrats.
Febuary 16, 2013 22:29:05 what?   I have five thirty round clips and two 75 round drum mags for AK-47, pre ban,1994,if anyone is interested? With Cuomo's gun ban looming they must be worth about $2,000 to $3,000. Cuomo himself said to sell them, so if someone wants to pay, their yours, otherwise I will have to bury them. Now Cuomo is saying about guns, "Confiscation could be a option".!! Impeach Cuomo and Obama!
Febuary 16, 2013 19:37:04 Interested in Trade   Looking for someone who wants to make a LEGAL trade. I am looking for an semi auto 9 MM. Am willing to trade S&W model 15 2 inch barrel or Ruger Model 36 357 Mag. If anyone wants to deal contact me via this board.
Febuary 16, 2013 17:18:44 TX-1   HEY! much Ice/Snow on Shears?
Febuary 16, 2013 17:16:37 Old Fa rt   Good weather got everybody outside.
Febuary 15, 2013 07:51:34 citizen of TOM   very quiet message board, must be all is peaceful in the town of Masonville.
Febuary 13, 2013 20:57:17 berimouse   Amen crzyflea,Amen.We are all of Gods children,all have warts,and etc.,but not so much compassion anymore for anyone in pain or hurt anymore,thats too sad to think about anymore except to never give up yah know?NEVER give up,tough to Soar like an Eagle when yur flying with Turkeys all the time.
Febuary 13, 2013 06:55:21 masonville resident   Nice to hear from someone who grew up in Masonville, your comments on saying thank you or nice job are what we used to hear around here all of the time, but since our towns people have moved in from elsewhere, we have lost a lot of the nice ways. You are right these kind words go a long way and always will. These words do not pay the bills ,but do make us feel good and encourage us to do better work.
Febuary 13, 2013 06:02:00 crzyflea   @Whart be that as it may, everyone appreciates praise from time to time. Yes, they have a contractual obligation to do the work, just as you or I or Jo Blow from Idaho, have contractual obligations to do our work as well if we are so lucky as to have a job. While getting our paycheck is enough, hearing someone say 'good job', 'well done', or heaven forbid, 'thank you' is nice. Not required, not necessary, but NICE. A smile or a kind word do not break your check book. It might not make the balance any more in your favor either but it will make you feel better. I promise, it won't hurt, costs nothing and is sometimes worth more than you might imagine. Funny thing about NICE, Not a lot of that going around these days on this forum. When I see all the petty bickering on here I get sad thinking about the town I grew up in and what a small and sometimes petty place it has become. You know what gives me hope that there is still some of that beautiful place that is a slice of heaven in my childhood memories, Seeing the way folks come together in the face of tragedy......... My condolences to the Jumps. Thank goodness no human lives were lost but so sorry to hear about all the animals and the barn. It makes my heart glad to see the outpouring of support from the community.
Febuary 12, 2013 18:36:26 Whart   What? all I am trying to say is that they are rewarded with the pay that they agreed to per thier contract. We do not need to praise people for doing what they agreed to do. It is expected of them/ and as a taxpayer I agreed to pay wages retirement and benifits. They are bettor off then most. the service is owed.
Febuary 12, 2013 07:38:30 what?   Did you know Obama is, in coordination with the Mexican president, Felipe Calderon, running television ads. The United States government is running television ads in Mexico targeted at Mexicans who planned on coming to the United States. And do you know what the commercials were about? How to get food stamps!Did you know when Obama came into office $563 million in 2008 on welfare.By 2009, $692 million.After four years of Barakaclause,welfare is over $1 trillion dollars. Obama is offering states that sign up the most recipients cash bonuses.Wisconsin got a $5 million performance bonus for adding the most recipients.If you have a taxpayer paid for Obamaphone, you get extra minutes for signing up more people. In 2011 about 16.8 million households qualified as living below the federal poverty level, which means that if the government’s welfare spending were equally divided between them, they would each get $59,523. I wonder what? helped get Barakaclause elected?
Febuary 12, 2013 07:21:38 what?   Tired, why would you think I don't work? Of course I do, seven days a week some times. Do you think people don't deserve raises? I make twice the money now than I did ten years ago and am no further ahead, everything costs more, zero net gain. Even people on welfare get raises.
Febuary 12, 2013 07:07:37 what?   Whart, if the TOM workers are so rich then why have they had second part time jobs? Who works on thier day off when they are rolling in dough? You sound pretty grumpy, I bet your one of those who doesn't smile and say thank you when a cashier hands back change,they are just doing the job they are paid for right?
Febuary 12, 2013 05:14:23 Tired   what? you I am assuming are not currently in the work force

Febuary 12, 2013 00:50:45 Amy Jump Jump Barn Fire. Hi everyone. I just found out about this page and was reading the comments. Thank you for all of your kind thoughts and prayers. There is going to be a chicken n biscuit lunch, Chinese auction and bake sale at the American Legion in Sidney on March 16th at 2pm. It will take time for Brad's burns to heal. He has to go back to syr burn center for further treatment this week. This fundraiser is to raise money to pay for medical bills and burial expenses for animals. My parents r talking of re-building a smaller barn on their property with fewer animals. The barn was a total loss and sadly we lost 62 animals. Thank you everyone for your thoughtfulness.

Febuary 11, 2013 18:23:33 what?   I can't think of anywhere I would want to work if there wasn't cost of living raises, cost of living increase equals zero net gain. WooHoo they got such a big raise they all went out and bought identical Hummers!
Febuary 11, 2013 14:34:11 What   voter all i am trying to say is that we do not need to praise people who have a contract and agreed to do a job. We thank them with good pay and a real good healh care and retirement plan. And a cost of living increase in their pay.

Febuary 08, 2013 06:05:30 The Evening Sun 020713 Norwich   EMO DEVELOPING APP FOR SEVERE WEATHER, EMERGENCIES... NORWICH – In a few months, the City of Norwich Emergency Management Office will be the first in New York State to unveil a new EMO smart phone app for the community, showing that city officials can stay ahead of the game in the digital age to provide up-to-date information when weather conditions get tough. ... The app, which city officials hope to release free to the public by mid to late spring, is currently in development. City Emergency Management Officer A. Jones explained that while conventional modes of getting information out to the masses are useful, the new app is going to allow officials to reach a larger demographic at lightning speed. The Emergency Management Office already utilizes social networking sites including Facebook and Twitter to reach the community, Jones said. More than 230 locals follow it on Twitter, and more than 3,400 have liked it on Facebook. Moreover, email notifications and radio updates are put out regularly, along with a texts, phone calls, webcam and weather station feed, NY-Alert notifications (including road and school closures) and preparedness information. “We do a lot,” added Jones, “and the app is going to bring all of that together into one place ... It will be like one-stop shopping for people to get information.”......
