July 30, 2012 15:09:05 resident   The money available for the roads is not a tremendous amount and therefore does not go a long way. Travel all of the town roads and see that a lot has been done and realize it costs a lot to keep these in good condition and work others at the same time. Also, if you have lived here over 50 years you would see that our roads are in great condition compared to then. Masonville is one of the places you need to love or leave.
July 30, 2012 13:45:44 what?   Two different town roads by me have been greatly improved in the past couple years, thanks TOM!
July 30, 2012 13:29:31 whatever   resident all you have to do is look at what has accurred in the last 3 to 4 years on our roads(nothing) why go and get nothing at the meeting it needs to be resolved at the election booth.
July 30, 2012 12:14:31 resident   So many questions about the highway dept., next board meeting wed Aug.1 7:30 please attend and get your answers from some one who knows!
July 30, 2012 08:08:51 What!   Resident it is not how the town is run it is about how the highway Dept is run. And where are the checks and balances, who on the board is overseeing the process. That is my take from all the post.
July 27, 2012 06:25:30 what?   I don\'t know what? Jewish denomination he is, but a Rabbi is in our plant just before Passover for Kosher for about four weeks. One of the nicest, friendliest people I have ever met.
July 26, 2012 20:33:30 bertimouse   Observer: All we are trying to do is UNDERSTAND this particular sect of Hebrews...weve never had nor disliked any one of any religion! You say you lived amoung the Hasidic Hebrews and say that they are SORTA PUSHY AT TIMES?!? WHAT?!? Guess you havent tried to drive home through Liberty NY on a Friday afternoon lately. It is a real eye opener for any non-hebrew tourist. We made the mistake of stopping off at a hardware store in Liberty on a Friday afternoon after work before making the long drive home to Masonville once about 5 years ago. Never again. The way we were treated by the hebrew hasidic folks in that store left us wondering that maybe Hitler(as a youth before he turned crazy)had been treated in the same way by these people back in Austria when he was a supposed starving artist. Its never taken much to make an unstable person go postal. God Forgive us for thinking those thoughts which again is why were turning to our bible and or anyone we can to help us better understand these people so that we can have better tolerance and love for these most difficult summer residents. They stick to themselves and do not reach out to the local communities to help them understand about their ways which we feel is also just not right but whatever. We are really trying to Live & Let Live as we work there this summer! :)
July 26, 2012 17:38:48 resident   Once again, if there are questions about our town and how it is run, please attend board meetings on the first Wednesday of each month at 7:300 pm.
July 26, 2012 12:51:10 Observer   Bertimouse - Careful there!! You are treading pretty close to anti-semetism. You realize in this day and age the only fair game to attack is we conservative Christians? One must never critize or speak disparagingly of any minority or express an opinion of same. Speaking one's opinion is not allowed. I lived for 10-12 years among the Hisidic and Orthodox. Yes, they can be sorta pushy at times. LOL
July 26, 2012 08:43:26 #4   Not only those ladys own the road they walk on ,but the World. this jewish ladys dont care anything
July 25, 2012 21:24:14 bertimouse   Observer & Another M resident: yes we were reading Mark when we wrote that. Reading Jesus there for that but am also into Peter 2 as well now. Weve read the full bible 3 times over in the past but now well you know. Thanks and meant no harm nor foul to you Resident. Peace Neighbor...getting back into my religion and closer to my God because we need it. Again Peace.
July 25, 2012 21:10:42 bertimouse   We first asked for forgiveness. The Hasidic Hebrews that stay every summer in Sullivan County try the patience of all the yearly residents and workers there. We chose this year instead of being mad to like we said: turn to our OWN religion & it has brought us better Peace, Love and in some ways yes; understanding at least. Everyday we just dont understand how these people SAY that they Love and Follow the ways of God yet just dont follow the 10 commandments...which WE THOUGHT that God commanded to ALL, not just the so called chosen ones which everyone tells us there they think they are and everyone else is dirt? ALL that weve been taught since children in bible class and at church (our church) says that this is NOT SO. So how can one group of people literally TAKE OVER A WHOLE TOWN DURING THE SUMMER: rudely driving and treating the local people and disregarding the NYS building codes, local town housing codes, polluting the local streams with garbage strewn all overflowing the garbage cans, their women(who are not allowed to drive)walking on the wrong side of a very narrow 40-mile hour road: 3-women wide into the middle of the road while pushing baby carriages and refusing to move over even when cars are driving both ways as well? What Rabbi directed them to do this? Does he really want his precious daughters and children of Israel injured or killed that easily? We have been told that they treat their woman like MAIDS, RUGS and RABBITS: good for cooking, cleaning, wiping your feet on and making babies is all. WHATEVER! ITS ALL HERESAY, YES? All we know is that their Rabbi should teach a few NYS Safety Lessons about not only DRIVING but also walking on the local roads there. NUFF SAID. God give us all Patience. All of us!
July 25, 2012 11:06:01 resident   there is a highway law and a town policy on road improvement and take over . any questions regarding this should be directed to the highway supt. he should have all the CORRECT INFO on road take over and maint.
July 24, 2012 21:11:25 TX-1   They claim that they pay taxes like everyone else,and the road is a mess,you know i think they are right,but i dont know.they should have think about it b4 getting the land.now it is too late.
July 24, 2012 20:59:58 crzyflea   the road was unpaved when you bought the land - heck, they aren\'t paving the end of a road for a fellow who has respiratory problems and has been a long time resident, why should shears get paved on taxpayer funds for someone who is new. As another person posted - if you want it paved pave it yourself. They won\'t stop you from doing the improvement most likely.
July 24, 2012 17:50:15 what?   WOW! Didn't Bertimouse and some others *CENSORED* on us awhile ago for posting about religion? I guess I shouldn't complain, maybe he,she has seen the light. Besides that I didn't think I posted anything negative, just a suggestion to slow down.

July 24, 2012 12:46:19 Observer   Bertimouse - The second of the ten commandments is "Thou shalt not make any graven image." A man asked Christ what the greatest commandment was and Christ answered; ""Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets" ( Matthew 22:36-40 ). The Ten commandments were the basis for the law and Christ's reply was for the Church.

July 24, 2012 07:56:14 Another masonville resident   Dear bertimouse - I said nothing against anyone. My only comment was that if they want the road paved, they should pay for it. The taxpayers should not foot the bill because some people don't do thier homework before they purchase land. Enough said!
July 23, 2012 22:12:34 bertimouse   The reason why I sought out My Lord Jesus Christ Recently is because I work among SO MANY Hasidic Jews every day these dsys near Liberty NY. I prayed that we would have Grace and Patience, as well as other things such as Love For Thy Neighbor; which is the Lords SECOND COMMANDMENT! LOL That's such a big one! Seems like everyone is forgetting this one, eh? OK Nuff said.
July 23, 2012 21:53:11 bertimouse   Dear What, masonville resident and TX-1: Forgive us because we have BEEN MAD lately and so have seeked our Bible. TG there because the 2nd commandment says: Love Thy Neighbor As You Love Yourself. LOL! It was a Good Reminder For Us! :) Peace & Love To You All My Neighbors. I Love the TOM & All of my Neighbors.
July 23, 2012 12:43:08 TX-1   This ragheads wants paved roads,let them pay for it,if you can pay for an expensive car,pay for a better road.
July 23, 2012 09:12:21 thinking ahead   ??????????? If you have high priced cars maybe you should not be living in Masonville, also, was that road paved when you bought the property? If not, why did you buy there?
July 22, 2012 14:29:54 X   So after all that no body has seen them.
July 21, 2012 20:52:58 what?   There is some neat Masonville NY stuff on ebay. Some of the post card pics I've seen, a couple I haven't. There is a matchbook labeled Pinnell's Farm, Vacation Paradise, Bundy Hollow RD. Star Route Sidney Masonville NY. Does anyone know about this place? Some of the postcards are from Pinnell's Farm, but the pics are from different areas,Sidney library 1960s, the fairgrounds in Walton, Sidney Dam, one is labelled; "Purebred Holsteins Cows Pinnells Farm Masonville NY Delaware Co Postcard". Does anyone know where this pic was taken? It looks like maybe '50s or '60s from the car in the pic, and I'm thinking the barn by the sharp turn in the road on Butts RD??
July 21, 2012 14:47:16 TX-1   Pave Shears rd? have more rag heads going up there. NO sir,let it be like it is now.
July 21, 2012 00:09:00 what?   Dirt never hurt no one, or no car. The notorious high amount of salt used in NY is the guilty culprit. Move out of NY if you want a 'unblemished' car. A little tip, slow down the pace, you don't kick up dirt if you slow down. Ya know this ain't Neww Yoork City. I must be really rich, dirt doesn't affect my cars.
July 20, 2012 15:37:50 Another Masonville Resident   Pave it yourself like we did on Houck Rd. Why should the taxpayers foot the bill so your car does get dirty!
July 20, 2012 09:40:32 ????????????   When is the town of MV going to do with shears rd paving project ? I cant have my high dollars cars getting dirty ! Can they pave Shears rd ?
July 19, 2012 23:13:35 masonville resident   what is this pick on town crew week? Be more concerned about the pipeline and let's see if something can be done about this real problem!
July 19, 2012 07:38:39 Mike Spaccaforno,Supervisor   TO ALL CONCERNED, PLEASE NOTE...... There will be an open house held on Wednesday, July 25th between 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at the Franklin Central School in Franklin to answer questions regarding the pipeline that is being proposed to run through the Towns of Davenport, Franklin, Harpersfield, Kortright, Masonville, Meredith and Sidney by Constitution Pipeline. There were many questions raised at the last Town Hall meeting that were asked about payments and property taxes etc.,that we could not answer. This would be a great time to get it straight from the horses mouth.Please try to attend.
July 18, 2012 13:34:22 what?   And they should pave Mormon Hollow and Steam Mill all the way to the Reservoir, that way I wont have to wash my tires when I come home from fishing. But what about my windshield, how to solve the bug problem, humm,???
July 18, 2012 13:33:47 what?   It sounds like some of our residents should find a job themselves, then maybe they wouldn't worry about if someone else is working, or what? they are working on.Even though I haven't seen them, I have confidence that our past and present TOM super. is going to utilize the TOM workers effectively.
July 18, 2012 09:31:27 DR. Gomez   Once Again They Shall Pave Shears Rd. From where payment ends by Crazy Ole' Lee to atleast to the Cross ways at the state Lands. My BMW SUV is getting wrecked and dirty everytime I go up to my Property.
July 17, 2012 21:34:59 Reasonable   Bertimouse - As stated in my earlier post, it was reported that Pine Swamp, Teed and portions of Butts Roads are being paved this year. Also, regarding pot holes; usually if someone complains at a board meeting the highway super takes care of it right away. I bet you would get the same response if you just gave him a call and told him about your potholes.
July 17, 2012 20:42:17 bertimouse   It would be nice if the tom hwy dept would say in their town reports WHICH potholes they have fixed because we havent seen any yet. We also assume that since no one has mentioned it yet, but the only paving being done this year is around the new town hall?
July 17, 2012 17:44:57 Reasonable   They cut brush, mow ALL the roadsides, complete maintenance on all the equipment, prep everything for winter, ie stockpile sand, gravel etc. Also, there is a lot of prep work that goes into each paving project to ensure the project goes right and lasts. They have 4 men, including the superintendent, by FAR the smallest crew in the County! They stay busy enough and dom not sit around twiddling their thumbs.
July 17, 2012 11:24:25 Observer   Cut back the crew? Cut where? As I understand it there are only 4 now including the Superintendent. I am not sure how many miles of road the road crew maintains but I am sure it is several hundred miles total. Come winter who would keep those roads open and travelable? Town roads must be kept open for school buses, mail, emergency vehicles. While major projects are reported at the town board meetings there is much more to keep the crew busy. I do not think they sit around looking for something to keep themselves busy. Actually the road crew is probably busier in the winter than in the summer. And, as far as I see, they are pretty well booked up in the summer.
July 17, 2012 06:31:20 Whatever?   Thats it that's all the work that is being done this year. They should cut back on manpower this fall. The savings would be a graet releif for the town.
July 15, 2012 21:51:59 Reasonable   I believe the paving project this year are Pine Swamp, Teed and a portion of Butts Road...at least this is what was reported at the last Town Board meeting.
July 14, 2012 08:29:22 What!   X I have seen where there is some mowing being done no road work. Haven't seen them.
July 11, 2012 12:43:04 X   resident so you haven't seen them anywhere.
July 10, 2012 11:02:28 resident   where ever they are told to be, changes each day unless there is a large project they are working on. Come to meeting Wed and ask the man in charge.
July 10, 2012 06:04:43 X   resident that was not the question, where was the question.
July 09, 2012 22:36:44 resident   Next town meeting is Wed 7/11 at 7 pm. Like always the men are doing what ever they are told to do and getting it done in a timely matter.
July 09, 2012 07:28:38 X   When is the next town board meeting. Has anyone seen the road crew anywhere.

If you would like me to e-mail you a copy of the preliminary direction that the Constitution Pipeline will take, please send me your e-mail address and I will send it to you.The owners of the named properties will be sent requests for permission to survey said land. This should occur in the very near future, if not already. Thank you for your interest in this matter,
June 26, 2012 09:57:46 Kathy K   The message I just posted, ignore all the backslashes. Those seem to have been automatically added everywhere I put in a quotation mark.
June 26, 2012 09:53:39 Kathy K klpchn@yahoo.com Which pipeline? There are two. Kinder Morgan/El Paso Corp./Tennessee Gas Pipeline Northeast Exchange or Williams Partners LP/Cabot Oil & Gas Constitution Pipeline. For the Tennessee Gas Pipeline, type this in your browser bar (substitute a period for *dot* and the backslash character for *backslash* where indicated): \"watershedpost *dot* com\" (leave out the quotation marks & no spaces between characters) then type \"El Paso Part 3\" in the search box. You\'ll get a map. For the Constitution Pipeline, go to: \"elibrary *dot* ferc *dot* gov *backslash* idmws *backslash* docket_search *dot* asp\" then type \"PF12-9\" in the docket number field. Click \"submit\". When the list pops up, you want to scroll down to the 5/21/2012 docket described as follows: \"Constitution Pipeline Company, LLC submits Draft Resource Reports 1 & 10 and Stakeholder Mailing Lists for its proposed interstate natural gas pipeline under PF12-9.\" Click on \"File List\" then look for the link that starts with the number 3. It\'s got \"USGS 1 to 13\" in the description. This will bring up topo maps (make sure your computer can handle it because it\'s 7.57 MB) of the pipeline route. Page 13 of the pdf document that comes up has the Masonville section. You can e-mail me if you have any problems and I can send you links if that helps.
June 26, 2012 03:53:27 what?   The pipeline is going right through the middle of Reasonable's front lawn.
June 25, 2012 19:59:51 wshbown   how can we find out about the pipeline thru masonville thanks
June 24, 2012 10:10:01 funsucker   Also, what about a sluice pipe, who is responsible for replacing one of those, if it is caved in and no water can run through?
June 24, 2012 10:06:02 funsucker   Thank you. We live on 206 in Masonville with a Sidney Center address, so I guess that would be the Town of Masonville?
June 24, 2012 06:58:13 info   funsucker - it would depend on what road you live on in sidney center. If it is a county road, then the county is responsible. If it is a town road, then it would determin what town you live in...sidney or masonville.
June 23, 2012 21:19:31 funsucker   Who is responsible for cleaning ditches in Sidney Center?

June 21, 2012 23:10:11 bertimouse   Thank you Betty for the info about Where to get Free Rabies shots. We'd also like to remind folks here to renew their dog licenses again this year. -Yes the license fee went up last year but the Fine for having an unlicensed dog is even worse. TOM really needs to know about their animals because if you ever lose them anywhere they Will Find Them. Nuff Said.
June 20, 2012 12:40:20 TX-1   ARE YOU HOT YET??????
June 19, 2012 07:07:53 whatever?   resident, only three wow!
June 18, 2012 17:55:35 Betty Scott   The Masonville Rabies clinic is Thursday, June 21 6-8 pm. If you would like more information or the dates of other Rabies Clinics you can visit the Delaware County website. Click on the link for the public health department and then click on schedule of events and the rabies clinics appear on the calendar.
June 18, 2012 16:56:41 resident   highway supt. are not required to work any set hours.he is responsible to to work in accordance with the state highway law dictates . look up ny state laws and you will be suprised. he works with the crew by choice, is not reqd to. thus if he gets caught up with paper work he cannot fill pot holes etc. we only have a 3 man crew
June 17, 2012 11:04:47 Gloria   Does anyone know if Masonville going to have a rabies clinic this year?
June 16, 2012 11:22:58 Grumpy Ernst Keidel CDR.Keidel@gmail.com ON THE FOURTH OF JULY - one thing that won\'t happen is our town council meeting! That meeting has been pushed back to July 11. See you all then!

June 13, 2012 13:25:15 who!   Auction I thought they were selling evrything on ebay
June 12, 2012 21:09:10 Long time local home owner   Can anyone tell me what auction was done at the town sheds? Also, why no clean-up days. Thanks
June 06, 2012 17:13:15 Observer   Whatever- Not a matter of BSing anyone. It is a matter of record. If you want to know how many hours a public worker works go look. As a matter of fact our highway Super is the first one I have ever heard of working a steady 40 hour week. There are probably others who do but I am not familiar with them.
June 06, 2012 09:04:15 masonville resident   Our highway superintendent was hired to work 40 hours a week along with the other men and does a good job.
June 05, 2012 13:48:08 whatever   observer someone has you Bull S%&^&*d
May 31, 2012 20:23:39 bertimouse   Observer: regarding your recent comment: Haggling is for a market someplace in the desert of the middle east: Dude: what planet are you from? The LOL is on us,Thanks.
May 30, 2012 22:01:05 Reasonable   You are right observer....our current highway superintendent, even though he doesnt have to, works at least 40 hrs per week right along with the highway guys. Most days I have seen him early or late after everyone is gone. In most towns the super just visits in the morning, gives orders and then checks in later in the day. In our town he works just like everyone else, which allos the town to get away without having to hire an additional highway worker. I think this is a big bargain for the taxpayers.
May 30, 2012 10:30:01 Observer   Highway Supervisor (Superintendent) Which would you prefer a Superintendent that comes in to work one or two days a week; stays a short time and then leaves or one like we have? Puts in his 40 hours + and has had years of experience?
May 30, 2012 10:27:16 Observer   Bertimouse - I do not go to a yard/garage/barn/porch/etc sale to make new friends. The chances are they do not want to know me and I do not want to know them -- LOL -- But as I said it is easy enough to say what one wants for an item and then it can be accepted or rejected. Haggling is for a market someplace in the desert of the middle east. Nevertheless I hope they had a successful lawn sale.
May 30, 2012 10:01:51 whatever!   reasonable sorry i meant highway supervisor.
May 30, 2012 08:23:16 Reasonable   Change in supervisor? Didnt we just have a change? I believe the person who took over from Craig was back by Craig 100%. That is good enough for me!!!
May 29, 2012 22:28:15 bertimouse   Hi Observer: What,you dont like/know how to haggle?!? Some of our best friends were met this way-OY! This is the best part of any garage sale. ;) Hope yall had a Great M.Wknd. Truly.
May 27, 2012 05:22:06 whatever!   resident no higher then there elected supervisor, time for change.
May 27, 2012 01:03:08 Judy   To observer::: sorry everything wasn't appropriately priced or marked for you. 99% of the people we met delightfully asked about an items price, then they either negotiated down in their favor or moved on to something else. Nobody got insulted. That's part of the fun at garage sales. Can you imagine, we even gave away many items free of charge!!!!! You were the only one that walked away unhappy.
May 25, 2012 18:31:08 Observer   Kathy - Nice yard sale. But a bit of advice? At least for me when I stop at a yard sale and ask the price of an item I sort of expect the person has a price in mind. I do not make "offers". It either ends up that the seller or the buyer is insulted. I would have purchased several items except for that fact. It is easy enough for the seller to name a price and the buyer can accept and buy or reject and go elsewhere. But best of luck with your sale.
May 24, 2012 20:56:14 Kathy   MULTI FAMILY YARD SALE FRI 5/25 & SAT 5/26 9A - 3P STEAM MILL RD - 1 MILE UP SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE!!!
May 24, 2012 12:06:51 resident of Masonville   The town highway crew does what they are told to do so maybe we should look higher up the line before we critisize anyone. They did help build the new town hall and as we know you cannot be in two places at once. Good job guys!!
May 23, 2012 20:53:13 Reasonable   200k extra in the budget? If I have my numbers right that is nearly a 35-40% increase! Yikes, I wonder how many people would support such a tax increase?
May 23, 2012 00:35:51 bertimouse   Regarding Gas Fracking: 1. In Towanda,PA in the summer of 2011 there were 60 TRUCKS AN HOUR,24 HOURS A DAY,7 DAYS A WEEK,as reported by andesworks.com.(this is an org based in Andes NY trying to protect Delaware County.)-Do we REALLY want to hear & have that kind of road traffic here? 2. Ninety percent of the new High Paid Labor Force will be engineers,inspectors,riggers, operators,truck drivers,etc.will NOT be from NY. The most increased local labor force will be for $7.25/hr. restaurant,KMart & gas station associates. 3. If the TOM Board wanted to hire an independent monitor as has been recently suggested,then they should prepare for a budget referendum vote which would include AT LEAST another $200K to the Town 1-yr.Budget. Its a Great Idea to do this kind of monitoring to protect&report only to the TOM but for what & do ya really think a vote like that would pass? 4. i.e.what does whatever MEAN?& how could the TOM decide on things like what?: supervise the construction? take independent testing for which area wells & for what chemicals? inspect the roadways & which ones? supervise the site work construction & how far away? Develop & coordinate an Emergency Management Plan with the TOM & Delaware County regarding gas fracking? 4. Being Cautious & Wise First before Action always saves health,happiness & lives. Past History is a great tool. OK Nuff said.
May 22, 2012 23:20:26 bertimouse   Regarding the TOM HWY DEPT: 1.Kudos to the TOM Hwy.Dept.during winter. 2.Yes,some of our back roads buck with a Big S & before u know it some folks may start suing the TOM for damage to their cars because of potholes but 3.The TOM Hwy.dept.has to live within their means just like the rest of us. Nuff said.
May 22, 2012 13:54:24 Observer   Maybe I am missing something but my opinion would be that our highway crew, considering the types and amount of road they have to maintain, is doing yoeman's work. The making surplus trucks seems to be working out pretty fair. They get them for next to nothing put a few bucks in them and sell them at a profit for the town coffers. Sounds good to me!!! In fact they just sold one they fixed up that I would have bid on but it went for more than my pocketook felt it could affort at this time.
May 22, 2012 13:31:08 concerned also   it appears our highway dept spends much time making surplus trucks look nice. we only have a three man crew what. what do you expect miracles?
May 21, 2012 07:39:15 whatever?   Our roads are really in bad shape do we still have a highway crew.No clean up no road maintanence.
May 20, 2012 19:52:03 funsucker   Sad to hear that. A lot of people took advantage of the clean up days. I hope it will be available next year.
May 19, 2012 11:15:32 Observer   No clean up days in Masonville this year.
May 19, 2012 06:33:59 funsucker   What are the dates for Masonville clean up days this year
May 18, 2012 21:27:32 wshbown   anything going on around town for memorial day weekend
May 17, 2012 14:38:27 Whatever.   reasonable that is the most correct information to date. It was nice to see that the sky was not falling as all the chicken little anti frackers are claiming. All I would ask is that the town require permits at a very high cost somethi9ng like 250,000 per well to maintain our roads as you can see our town roads are in deplorable shape. Also the town should hire a monitior with no aggenda to monitor the operation and report back to the town board. Let's start drilling.
