June 06, 2013 17:54:23 Denis Burpoe dburpoe@yahoo.com Observer I am done with you mission accomplished all you want to do is cause trouble and set the people of Masonville against each other for your personal satisfaction. We need to stay positive and help Masonville to continue to be a kind caring trusting community. It is people like you who if we continue to let you destroy the trust of the people with your rantings will be harmful to our community as a whole goodby.
June 06, 2013 15:45:57 Observer   OOOOO!!! Sound like a Democrat!!! Them thar are fighten words!! How about cream pies at 3 paces? I cannot walk much further than that. What would be the point of revealing who I am? You still would not know me.
June 06, 2013 15:33:41 Denis Burpoe dburpoe@yahoo.com Thanks for not voting for me you sound like a democrat. Still wont reveal yourself so your word have no clout. God bless and good luck.
June 06, 2013 15:05:17 Observer   I am laughing until the tears run down my cheeks! All four of them :) Someone just told me who Mr. Burpoe is. Such an attack certainly will not convince me to vote for him should he run for office again. Mr. Burpoe I could not care any less where you were born or where you live. You say I talk down to people on here. Why do you say that? Have I attacked you in any fashion? You seem to have the problem not me. I am truly sorry your road is not in the condition you feel it should be; but, attacking me or anyone else on this forum will not get the problem solved. As to me telling you to buy another vehicle I do not have the power or authority to force anyone to buy anything much less a vehicle. I merely suggested a solution to your problem. You sound like perhaps you have a problem with anger management?
June 06, 2013 13:27:01 Denis Burpoe dburpoe@yahoo.com What! reveal your self you been putting people down on this site as well.I was not born here but have been involved in this community for 30 years. I am a hard working tax payer who wants the pot holes fixed. If anyone wants to put down the taxpayers because of this and not reveal who you are in my eyes a cowards and losers lets stop this nonsence of not revealing yourselves step up be men and women. You can put me and all my friends and neighbors down who live on steam mill road but hiding behind a screen name in my eyes makes you useless to the bettorment of our community and yes my road sucks.And going to a town board meeting to try to change this is also useless.Remember there is no money.
June 06, 2013 12:35:37 Denis Burpoe dburpoe@yahoo.com Observer you are a pompas a$% you have no clue what you are talking about reveal your self if you are so rightous how dare you tell me to get another vechile when I am paying out my a@# for cars and insurance. Let everyone know who you are you coward talking down to people because they are geographicly not born in this town. come out you coward let everyone know who you are.If you don't have the balls just shut up. You are a trouble maker with nothing bettor to do with your time coward.
June 06, 2013 12:30:38 what?   I think it's pathetic people can drive on the same roads every day and claim the potholes damaged their vehicle. If you can't negotiate the potholes you shouldn't be driving, hopefully they can negotiate around our children. I only go over Steam Mill during the hunting seasons and sometimes to fish at the Reservoir, and I can miss the potholes. I do feel potholes should be fixed. We pay taxes, they could at least fix them temporary. It wouldn't take much to throw a few shovels of free shale in each hole.
June 06, 2013 11:31:39 Observer   Mr. Burpoe sir - I do not have the foggiest notion of who you are or what you are talking about. Me the elite of Masonville? Now that is funny! Mr. Burpoe I have lived in the general area for most of 77 years and was brought up on a back road that was rarely ever maintained and even less of the time plowed in the winter. I remember farmers towing the school bus from farm to farm so we could get out and go to school. So, I do know a tad about back roads. Yes at this time I do live on State Highway 206 and must say at times the potholes will rattle ones teeth. I travel many of the back roads in the area. Not because I have to but because I like to. You say you want the taxes raised 20 percent so your road can be maintained better? I really doubt you will get a grassroots movement started on that issue. As to my post: I was being factious. I am quite aware of the condition of some roads. Weather and time can play havoc with them. But, I also know that many people who live on these roads choose to live there knowing they are not 4 lane highways and then they complain about it. One cannot have the rural setting they crave and the metropolitan road care they want. Choices have to be made. As, to struts and ball joints on your vehicle I am sorry about that but I guess it means you either drive slower or buy a more rugged vehicle. I really doubt your road will ever be in the condition, (regardless of how much money is spent on it), that you want it to be.
June 06, 2013 09:35:53 Denis Burpoe dburpoe@yahoo.com Observer it sounds to me that you are the elite of Masonville. How many people live on Steam mill that were born on steam mill come on observer show your face. Whats the matter no balls? It' easy from behind the computer screen. Come on Obseerver grow up be that man or woman if you beleive in what you are saying show your hand we have a name for that in Masonville it is called a coward, does it fit.
June 06, 2013 08:59:34 Denis Burpoe dburpoe@yahoo.com Observer I know you just want to bash me because I live on steam mill road what road do you live on and who maintains your road. I bet you live on route 206 don't you.
June 06, 2013 08:00:16 Denis Burpoe dburpoe@yahoo.com. Sorry I made a mistake I have been advised that I have lived on steam mill road for 26 years. Come on Observer reveal yourself.
June 06, 2013 07:09:00 denis Burpoe dburpoe@yahoo.com You
June 06, 2013 07:08:02 Denis Burpoe dburpoe@yahoo.com And by the way Observer who are yoe
June 06, 2013 07:01:00 Denis Burpoe dburpoe@yahoo. com observer what is really on your mind. I havent read this site in a while but I will tell you I have invested a lot of money in tie rod ends ball joints tires because of the condition of my road.Even our pickup truck needed to have ball joints tie rod ends and other work due to the road. They do not make vechiles the way they did 22 years ago when I first moved here. I say raise all taxes 20% fix the roads. I am putting all that money in repairs would rather give the town enough money to repair the roads all the roads in Masonville. Would love to debate this issue with any open minded ,diverse person or persons in a open minded forum. And I am not bashing anyone lets get the Highway Department more money, Lets cut out Some social sevice money we send to the county and use it in our town. Observer lets take this out to the public I would love to debate you.let me know.
June 05, 2013 16:06:12 Observer   Steam Mill Road. Isn't that the 6 lane super autobahn here in Masonville? Only to be reviled by the other great highway Shear Road? By all means keep these two great highways in prime condition for the elite of Masonville, New York City and New Jersey. What a terrible catastrophe if one of them dirtied a tire traveling one of these highways.
June 05, 2013 05:39:06 concerned   Hush are you saying that they are not stoneing the road back to where it was?
June 04, 2013 20:25:24 Hush.   Sorry if I misunderstood. So many people bash the crew I thought it was another slam. They are doing a good job trying to reclaim the road to what it was before it got paved. Sorry again.
June 04, 2013 17:59:11 long time resident   hush that was a compliment what did I say wrong. Did you not like the work? It was a compliment! the work is outstanding what didI say wrong?
June 04, 2013 15:53:35 Hush.   It is being worked on. Give them a break!! I hope they don\'t do to much more to it. Maybe it will keep the \"passing through\" complainers out!
June 04, 2013 11:31:16 long time resident.   If you want to complain about the Highway crew I cut thru steam mill road this morning, you should take a ride and see the outstanding work that they do.
June 04, 2013 08:49:41 resident   town board meeting Wed at 7:30 hope more can attend and ask some questions of our board.
June 02, 2013 02:12:18 what?   Don't miss the new documentary "District of Corruption" national television premiere on June 17, 2013 on AXS TV.It is said to document abuse of power in Washington during the Bush and Clinton administrations and Obama's. "Directed by Stephen K. Bannon, lays bare the lawless and unconstitutional Obama administration and makes the case for more openness, integrity, and honesty in government and leads the way for changing the climate of corruption that has gripped Washington, D.C. for far too long.The film exposes Obama administration scandals such as Solyndra, Fast and Furious, Crony Capitalism, Czars, and its politicized Justice Department."
June 01, 2013 00:12:37 bertimouse   BTW?I Love Masonville.Always Will.Loved our Memorial Day Parade.Speaker reminded us ALL to Thank Vets&I took that to Heart.Had 2 Great Experiences this wk because of His Speech-"Hug A Vet&Thank them"-is what I Learned Last wknd,So I Did.I went home&sought out&Hugged&Thanked a WW2 Vet&a Vietnam Vet.Both of them actually CRIED when I Hugged them&Thanked Me,so there u go.MV Advice=good4me.
May 31, 2013 23:36:12 bertimouse   Dear TOM Residents: This Sunday June 2nd WILL be bringing a Big Storm with Big Winds and Big Water to us.Also,there will be a Cold Front Slamming into that West Storm approaching us.2 Super Cell Warm Fronts R heading strait towards our Cold Front,OMG.

Pray that YEE GODS OF UR FATHERS PROTECT U. I will not Post Here Until AFTER,ARGH we have ridden out this here Storm. PL&H to all Survivors Here in the TOM.See you soon.
May 31, 2013 12:18:48 what?   That does look like the path we as a country are heading, but I have faith that we will take a different path soon. The Liberals, the Obama administration and his supporters are doing everything they can to shut up and illegally suppress any opposition there is to their idea of expanding government, gutting the Constitution and cutting the citizens down to their knees. If you consider yourself a Patriot or publicly support the Constitution, your on Obama's 'hitlist'. A free America can only be pushed so far though, and I think your going to see some eyes opened and people waking up in the next four years. The 'low information voters' are starting to get informed.
May 30, 2013 16:39:09 Observer   Charles Dickens in his novel of the French Revolution states, "It was the best of times; it was the worst of times." I think God in His infinite wisdom saw fit to place me on this earth so I saw the "best of times" for this country. I am old enough now that I probably will not see the "worst of times" for this country. I believe that within 25 to 35 years this country will cease to exist as a democratic republic with an elected ruling body. When I was young, people were proud to be independent. Proud to make their own way rather than depending on a corrupt government to tell them what they needed and do not need. They were proud not to take a hand-out from a controlling body. The politics of this state is much worse than any politics of any Southern state in history or Chicago or even Tammany Hall. His Royal Highness and his personal Storm Troopers has decided to control the state. Corruption, influence peddling, sex crimes, buying and selling of offices and we like sheep just cluck our tongues and say "naughty, naughty". Within 25-30 years this country will be absorbed into and controlled by a world wide body. Be it the UN or not that I do not know. But, this do know, Obama is giving more and more of our country and its control to foreign powers. This country fought a revolution over a lot less abuse of power than we are experiencing today. As I stated I believe this country will cease to exist as a democratic republic and it seems the people of this country could not care less. Like sheep at a slaughter house they are being led to a certain doom. All the average citizen cares is "do I get a hand out from the government?", Does my TV and cell phone work?, and where is the beer?" We have allowed the corruption in the government and the death of morality to guide our lives. Human life has ceased to be of import.
May 29, 2013 09:00:40 life long resident   for those of you who do not live here, this message board is totally gossip and just for entertainment!!!!! Please do not judge our wonderful town and people by all of this gossip and nonsense. Masonville is a wonderful place to live and the people are great.
May 28, 2013 20:17:37 cunfused   Seems like the parade was a little shorter this year,need more participants. Town trucks looked good for fire and highway. I overheard someone say half the highway trucks were government surplus. People need to get the facts right before speaking. If the feds are getting rid of trucks like that then we need more,ha ha!!!
May 28, 2013 20:08:29 cabin fever   SWAT team coming to Masonville,watch the news at 6pm!!!!! Front page "Hwy. Supt. missed a pothole,execution next week" Glad the message board is not for evil thoughts-LOL.
May 28, 2013 20:04:24 cunfused   To all...I don't know why I guess, so everyone tell me...what are the issues with the current hwy. supt.????? If we must read the laws then what illegal act is going on???
May 28, 2013 04:42:05 what!   confused I think really just wants everyone to read what the responsibilities of the Highway Supt. are I read the laws this morning quite interresting. I think really has a point be informed before you vote read the laws and ask questions. And no confused we do not have best Highway Supertendent. Lets Vote in November.
May 27, 2013 23:25:59 what?   Memorial day goes by with no thanks from the posters on this site, that's sad. Not a single thanks. "As we remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for the freedoms we enjoy every day, we think of each and every one of you. Please hold our servicemen and women in your strong arms. Cover them with your sheltering grace and your presence as they stand in the gap for our protection. We also remember the families of our troops. We ask for your unique blessings to fill their homes, and we pray your peace, provision, and strength will fill their lives. May the members of our armed forces be supplied with courage to face each day. Let our military brothers and sisters feel our love and support. May the members of our armed forces be supplied with courage to face each day. Let our military brothers and sisters feel our love and support. THANK YOU!
May 27, 2013 20:04:32 cunfused   to really............you are saying who we have now is the best....I agree with you!!!! He saves and makes money for us,no other hwy supt does that. Also uses all money given to him for road repair to fix what can with those funds.
May 27, 2013 17:36:31 No mice   I think Bertimouse sounds like a whack job! Why would anyone want someone so narrow minded hold any kind of position in this town?!
May 27, 2013 08:29:53 really   I think bretimouse would be a great highway supertendent, She would read and understand the highway laws and work for the taxpayers.I also hope that there will be more people running as we need to look at this position and decide how we want our roads maintained and where we want money saved we can do this by electing a person who understands highway laws 140 thru 152 as a beginning. everyone should be informed and vote.
May 25, 2013 10:21:37 what?   cunfused for president, got my vote! Why not,the one in office is confused!
May 25, 2013 09:39:01 cunfused   Bertimoosey talks of dog licences and is now the future hwy. supt.???? I'll talk about the weather and become the president?????? This board has issues!!!!

May 24, 2013 20:15:50 masonville resident   old *CENSORED*, you mean you missed summer? we went on to winter yesterday Enjoy your weekend summer will return soon.
May 24, 2013 19:07:19 Old Fa rt   HEY!! what happened to Summer?
May 24, 2013 15:03:54 Observer   While I have nothing against licensing my dog. Let's face it, it has nothing to do with the health or welfare of anyone or protection of livestock. It is merely an income source for the town. That is why I find it so amazing that the state gave it up to the towns.
May 23, 2013 22:19:54 bertimouse   Anyone that Lives FT Here&Owns a Dog-Multiple Dogs in the TOM,U R Required to have UR dogs Licensed with the TOM Period,END OF STORY! You ALL(Residents)need to call either the Town Clerk at 607-265-3537 or Our Dog Control Officer as Listed on masonvilleny.com at 607-265-3240 if yall want MORE INFO ON HOW to make your Animals LEGAL in the TOM. There is a reason for that which I will Post. AGAIN I SAY,HEY!-All of the Dogs Residing in the TOM need to be Registered for the Health & Safety of Us All. Duh.
May 23, 2013 20:02:14 reader   is everyone sleeping out there, there does not seem to be much activity on this board.
May 18, 2013 05:59:45 really   funsucker if you want a decision on a code you are in the wrong town, because if you are a friend of the code enforcment officer you can do what you want and he never finishes anything that needs a decision made. He just wants a check thats all.
May 17, 2013 20:20:06 funsucker   How far from a residence can you legally operate a stone query?
May 17, 2013 13:53:58 PhantomGoogler   for reaching the clerk - give a call to the number listed here on the site, leave a message if you don\'t get an answer. She\'ll call you back. I\'ve never had a problem getting in touch with her.
May 17, 2013 09:28:48 Old Fa rt   They all Bankers hours.
May 17, 2013 07:55:40 really?   Who, you may be right, no one has done the dog count in years so how does anyone know how many dogs there really are?
May 17, 2013 07:53:24 resident   Who! thats not true, but every time I go to the town hall the clerk is not there to buy my licence. Does anyone know what the clerks hours are at the town hall.
May 17, 2013 05:12:05 Who!   resident you do not have to licence your dog in masonville. nobody cares.
May 16, 2013 13:29:17 resident   how much for a current dog license?
May 16, 2013 01:18:57 PhantomGoogler   The fellow asking about lawnmowing - next town over you can get someone. Oakley's lawn Care 607-643-3481 he does lawns any size and also does some landscaping. Ask for Rob. Does free quotes. I'm on beech hill also and may be having him out to do mine as well.
May 15, 2013 14:08:57 Old Fa rt   Next thing,they will say it is a terrorist training camp under cover.people are sick,not much to do around here.
May 15, 2013 07:55:45 what?   The only one I heard was in Sidney was Chris Gibson. Now, maybe Chuck Schumer was there also I could see someone protesting Schumer.
May 15, 2013 02:12:27 crzyflea   Kinda makes you wonder - would it have had as much impact locally if he had just taken it down? See the buzz being made about one man flipping his flag and the commotion it caused. I wonder where else it has caused a conversation, raised some heads, startled people awake from their safe and secure ignorance. I say well done. I don't have to agree with your politics to salute the fact that a man takes a stand and takes action for what he believes in.
May 14, 2013 19:15:01 Observer   Why would anyone think he was a Nazi or KKK? Maybe he is a patriot?
May 14, 2013 17:08:16 Just Wondering   Does that guy who flies that big flag top of the mountain coming from sidney to MV on 8. is that a nazi or KKK club or something..?? any one knows ?
May 14, 2013 11:41:18 Observer   What? - One could pick any number of things to protest in our government today; both state and federal. But I was told it was in protest of some state rep. who was visiting Sidney. I have been told the fellow is very conservative in his political stand. I, myself, am very concerned about the direction our country is taking. Never has the moral climate of this nation been as low as it is now. The government, both state and federal is getting more and more involved in our lives. Coumo sending out his Storm Troopers to enforce his edicts. People being arrested for taking anti-anxiety meds or having more rounds in a gun magazine than His Majesty has declared. We can keep going and going and not cover all the intrusions into our private lives. I even know a fellow who was told not to have a Gaston Flag in his place of business. Nearby a guy bought 500 rounds of ammunition from a business in Binghamton and was visited by Coumo's Storm Troopers next day. When are we going to stop acting like sheep? One of our founding father's stated, "When people fear the government that is tyranny, but when the government fear the people that is liberty." One of our federal officials assured the people, "We are not coming after your guns". Yeah, right! Another stated, "If I could take every gun out of the hands of people I would." When guns are only in the hands of police and the Storm Troopers that is a Police State. Hitler's regime removed gun rights from people to make it easier to round up the Jews and dissidents.
May 14, 2013 11:22:57 what?   So, what? was his 'beef'? Was he protesting against American jobs, and against our Constitution? Or was he protesting for higher taxes and more Government involvement in our lives? Or was it something else altogether?
May 14, 2013 10:26:23 Observer   While the US Flag code states that the flag should only be flown upside down as a signal of extreme distress; flying it that way is not really showing disrespect for the flag or country. It is often flown upside down as a sign of protest and people have been doing so for years and it has become more prevalent since the last presidential election. I cannot affirm the story of the large flag but I did hear it from about 6 independent sources.
May 14, 2013 08:46:41 reader   The flag that Steve Anderson, SCS board member, has flown up side down was an insult to our flag and our country and what does it teach our school children?.
May 13, 2013 23:55:36 what?   Observer, look into who was in Sidney. I would like to know. The only one I have heard visited Sidney was a Congressman who visited Amphenol, ((that I think is a waste but a different story). If the beautiful flag that flows on top of Sidney was hung upside down by someone that disagrees with a retired Veteran Colonel from West Point and has so many medals you could write a book on him, and hasn't broke our Constitution like our temporary Governor and President,and is and has been for our Constitutional rights as far as Cuomo's anti gun Legislation goes, a upside down flag would be a disgrace to the country,our town and the county. But he has that right, it is only the the Republicans that have no rights,Benghazi,IRS etc.,.
May 13, 2013 22:20:40 ???   SWAT Team telling him to take it down? Who the heck gives anyone the authority to tell anyone to turn their flag around being flown on private property???
May 13, 2013 20:18:31 Observer   I am told the fellow who flies the very large flag outside of Sidney hung it upside down in honor of one of our Albany crooks who was in town. I understand he was visited by a swat team and told to take it down. It would have been a lot more effective had he hung several politicians from Albany up side down from the flag pole.
May 12, 2013 10:49:40 Mormon Hollow Farm   Happy Mothers Day to all the Moms and Grandmas in town. Have had wonderful gifts from my 3 sons. A nice dinner with one family, flowers from one and one did my heifer chores this morning. So nice to know they care.
May 10, 2013 10:23:34 just a reader   Glad to see interest in our town. We all have to remember that decisions are made by the board to better the town, some may be hard to understand but if more could attend the meetings and ask questions we could all learn more facts. I feel that the board is good to work with and will give the answers to our questions, sometimes research needs to be done so it may not be an immediate answer. The people we have running our town have been here for a long time and know the history of our town, therefore hopefully they know what does and does not work. Just food for thought.
May 09, 2013 23:18:55 what?   Great posts, PhantomGoogler. Good suggestions in my opinion. All the 'stuff' you say Gary's takes for free, the county dump does also along with household garbage for free. But if all these lazy complainers on this board would like to just dump it off at the town hall and let the taxpayers deal with it, a few volunteers or fundraisers would definitely help the situation.
May 09, 2013 22:31:30 PhantomGoogler   What if as a community we raised the funds to do the clean up days. Say with a chicken bbq or two or a penny social, anything really, just a nice little community activity that would be to put together a fund for things like clean up days. It really is a shame with the grange closed and all that we don't have nearly as many community activities as there once were back 15-20 years ago. Serves a dual purpose. Funds some community projects, offers some fun activities and it fosters a sense of community and togetherness. Sure it means some folks give up some time but get the kids involved foster some pride and some roots. What can it hurt?
May 09, 2013 22:22:32 PhantomGoogler   Just something that maybe most folks don't know about and maybe it would enable us to have at least a partial clean up day. I can't make it to meetings but if someone who does go thinks this might be a good idea they could bring it up for me. ---- Straight from their website: Gary's U-Pull It, Inc. works with many local towns to setup what is referred to as "Town Cleanup Day". During these days Gary's provides the township with multiple containers at a single location designated for the local community to dispose of unwanted scrap metal including, refrigerators, stoves, dishwashers, washers, driers, lawn mowers, gas grills and the list goes on and on. This service is provided to the township at no cost and keeps the streets and yards of the community looking great. Along with "Town Cleanup Days" many towns also choose to keep a single container year round for residents to have a place to dispose of unwanted metals on an as needed basis.
May 09, 2013 18:45:52 bertimouse   Thank U Confused:Like I say One Phone Call Is All for the TOM HWY Dept:607-265-4010 X-3=All U Need.They Always respond pretty quick. :) I Love MV&all of U.This here Message Board?-not so much.We all have warts&annoying things that totally BUG others-including what the TOM does.Keep smiling&trying for ur Best is all I can do here.& Yes,attend a TOM mtg.if u can.Complaints should Not disturb this Board here which is meant for Messages,Yes?My message is Peace.Now.
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 mlc724@yahoo.com 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 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?
