January 29, 2013 18:11:18 again   2% not25 sorry
January 29, 2013 18:10:37 again   2% not25 sorry
January 29, 2013 12:57:33 boned again   The only concern I have is this going to be a contunious stand to go over the 25 cap every year and we will just be adding taxes to taxes?
January 29, 2013 02:48:09 me   there seems to be many concerns about our town, hopefully all will attend the next board meeting and air these concerns to the board.
January 28, 2013 20:35:16 what?   The increase in tax to TOM homeowners was .26 cents per thousand per year.That's small change compared to what Obama has done to our health insurance.My insurance went up $40 a month just from one provision in Obamacare, we have to pay for everyone's children up to age 26 now.The Kaiser Family Foundation and the Health Research and Educational Trust report that between 2010 and 2011, family premiums increased by 9 percent and for individual premiums by 8 percent, and they will go up much more after the full implementation of Obamacare. Smokers;you will be charged double if you buy individual policies starting next Jan 1, Obamacare says so.
January 28, 2013 18:13:59 Read This!   Yes, he told us in advance what he planned to do. Few were listening. The following is a narrative taken from a 2008 Sunday morning televised \"Meet The Press\'. From Sunday\'s 07 Sept. 2008 11:48:04 EST, Televised \"Meet the Press\" THE THEN Senator Obama was asked about his stance on the American Flag. General Bill Gann\' USAF (ret.) asked Obama to explain WHY he doesn\'t follow protocol when the National Anthem is played. The General stated to Obama that according to the United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec. 171... During rendition of the national anthem, when the flag is displayed, all present (except those in uniform) are expected to stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. Or, at the very least, \"Stand and Face It\". NOW GET THIS !! \'Senator Obama replied: \"As I\'ve said about the flag pin, I don\'t want to be perceived as taking sides\". \"There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression..\" \"The anthem itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all that sort of thing.\" (ARE YOU READY FOR THIS???) Obama continued: \"The National Anthem should be \'swapped\' for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song \'I\'d Like To Teach the World To Sing\'. If that were our anthem, then, I might salute it. In my opinion, we should consider reinventing our National Anthem as well as \'redesign\' our Flag to better offer our enemies hope and love. It\'s my intention, if elected, to disarm America to the level of acceptance to our Middle East Brethren. If we, as a Nation of warring people, conduct ourselves like the nations of Islam, where peace prevails - - - perhaps a state or period of mutual accord could exist between our governments ......\" When I become President, I will seek a pact of agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of enmity, and a freedom from disquieting oppressive thoughts. We as a Nation, have placed upon the nations ofIslam, an unfair injustice which is WHY my wife disrespects the Flag and she and I have attended several flag burning ceremonies in the past\". \"Of course now, I have found myself about to become the President of the United States and I have put my hatred aside. I will use my power to bring CHANGE to this Nation, and offer the people a new path. My wife and I look forward to becoming our Country\'s First black Family. Indeed,CHANGE is about to overwhelm the United States of America \"
January 28, 2013 14:41:55 concerned citizen   There are many things to consider when doing budgets and maybe more of the public should attend the budget meetings and see all that really goes on, maybe the town board would be more than willing to listen any and all suggestions. From the sidelines, it seems to look like the entire town needs to work together on this issue.
January 28, 2013 06:16:08 boned again   When cherries grow on pine trees LOLOLOL. Our boards are too lazy to due the work needed to lower the tax rate
January 27, 2013 17:24:00 Observer   They could drill a gas well every two feet in the state of New York and the taxes would go down when cherries grow on pine trees.
January 27, 2013 15:30:09 what?   States that have been drilling for natural gas have seen their taxes go down, some of them have talked about eliminating property taxes because of the increase in income from natural gas.The natural gas industry has created 4 million jobs, that's 4 million more jobs than Obama's $trillion dollar,taxpayer funded 'stimulus bill' created.
January 27, 2013 14:50:55 boned again   I was just watching a commercial it appeared to be governor Comuo or whatever is name is stating that no property tax will go above 2 percent. Now I know that our town boartd went over this by a vote of the board also this was done on the county level as well. Do you mean to tell me that the Governor makes a law not to exceed 2% and the town does can I sue to have my increase only 2%?
January 26, 2013 16:34:53 look at both sides   Watched "Fracknation"!! What an eye opener. I also read some reviews about this film. Here is part of one of them. "The 70-minute documentary destroys the claims made in Gasland. It eviscerates Gasland's credibility and makes clear that its director knowingly lied again and again. On the facts, the science, the conflicts of interest of its protagonists. Frack Nation is worth seeing because it is a good film. It is funny in upending the pathetic lies of Gasland. It is fast-paced. (Is that legal in a documentary?) It is not heavy handed, self-congratulatory, or "full of itself." It breaks all the rules, or at least traditions, of the modern documentary.
January 26, 2013 06:01:03 what!!!!!   I real sad thing is how many taxpayers did not vote
January 25, 2013 23:07:48 what?   You can by it through Cabelas,and Gander Mountain. It won't do anything if dropped, hit by a hammer or shot with a small caliber rifle or shotgun, must be a high velocity rifle. Big BOOM no harm done (as long as you were not standing next to it!)I was betting it was a rocket propelled grenade or a bazooka, the Liberal media, Obama, and Cuomo says you can buy them online and that's why they want to do away with the Second Amendment to the Constitution.
January 25, 2013 20:14:22 just me   Very big noice is puting it mildly, hope someone had fun and had ear protection on.
January 24, 2013 23:32:40 Hmph   Back to the explosion post, your probably talking about Tannerite. Some Walton locals got ahold of it last week and caused quite a bit of ruckuss. They probably moved out of town after the cops were called. Basically it makes a VERY big boom when you shoot it. Completely legal by the way..
January 24, 2013 14:29:29 why not   But shouldn't people who pay more property taxes, because they have a nice home, have more votes than people who own a dump of a home
January 24, 2013 13:53:02 Hard working taxpayer   Only landowners/deed holders should be allowed to vote!!!
January 24, 2013 12:34:06 why not   Does anyone know how many non tax paying students voted? maybe we should give votes based on how much property taxes you are paying. why should't people who pay more taxes have more say
January 24, 2013 09:32:32 what?   Good post from the Daily Star, I read it to. The country is broke, the state is broke, and Sidney soon will be broke if they ain't already. Sidney's tax base is shrinking as more people move out. And all they can care about is a state of the art artificial turf field, and get as many non-taxpaying former students as they could to vote for it. Sidney had a online Facebook campaign urging all former non-taxpaying students to come to Sidney to vote for the waste of taxpayer dollars. We paid for a new field less than ten years ago, now we pay for another one, and less then ten years from now we pay again, a artificial turf field lasts less than ten years.
January 24, 2013 05:15:39 a concerned taxpayer   I would vote for Bertimouse at least you would know that the work was done right. She would push the men to give 8 good hours and would fire the men that can not do the work correct. Bertimouse you have my vote.
January 24, 2013 02:03:34 The Daily Star Oneonta Paper 012313   Area officials: School aid likely not enough to cover mandated costs 1/23/13 ...With the cut of $58,509 proposed for Sidney Central School, Superintendent Bill Christensen said the budget season will be “challenging.” He will be looking for details to determine exactly how the district will be impacted by all the proposals, but it was better than the cut of several hundred thousand the district absorbed following the “alleged” 2012-13 state increase, he said. He was glad to see an acknowledgement of the mandated costs districts are facing. More needs to be done about the inequality in funding between upstate and downstate schools that heavily favors the latter, he said. The district will again resort to a variety of strategies to close the $600,000 gap the school faces just to break even with its necessary expenses. The district will be able to do that with increased efficiencies and the use of fund balance but, “you can only do that for so long,” he said. That was the same strategy the district used to reduce taxes the last two years. He said he will be looking into funding for several initiatives proposed by Cuomo that the school is already involved with, such as pre-kindergarten and all-day kindergarten, to see if they qualify. He said he will have a better idea about what projected taxes will be in 2013-14 when school health care costs are received in the near future
January 23, 2013 11:08:07 Confused   Actually just the thoughts of Bertimouse being the next TOM Supervisor gives me the urge to put my property on the market. :)
January 23, 2013 05:20:00 Whatever?   Thrifty or just not doing the work of the people I used to take the back roads to use the general store at the 4 corners. NO more, destroyed my car have you ever notice how the roads always change for the bettor whe you drive into a neighboring town when you hit Masonville the roasd are not up to the standards that the other towns use? You can say that the people should not complain but this is a good forum for this.And the roads have to be the worst or close to the worst in the county.
January 22, 2013 23:30:06 bertimouse   Please What do not wish for that.There is enough in reality to deal with now.
January 22, 2013 23:00:32 what?   I wish we had some of that Global Warming that Obama talked about during his inauguration speech, and is calling for more job killing regulations and driving up the cost of fuel.Some of that Global warming would be nice, it isn't suppose to get much above zero all week at night.
January 22, 2013 22:37:12 bertimouse   Dont forget to leave your water lines dripping a little bit if your worried about em freezing if your worried a bit about the insulation. Stay Warm Friends.
January 22, 2013 22:29:51 bertimouse   Hi 1 Who Cares?Nope I was a long suffering and underpaid CI that knew everything from day 1 before the project even went out to bid. I trained 3 PMs that quit the project,LOL. Phase 2(the field work)cost SCSD an additional 2mil because of designer mistakes which the SCSD shouldve sued them for. Yes Sur Id Love to be the next TOM Supervisor,ha ha wouldnt we all. The TOM HWY Dept. does the Best They Can Always.Would love to see You out there 3am plowing,LOL! You neighbor better be careful what you wish for because the next generation to Come Up and Govern Masonville will be here before you know it. I apologize if I said LOL too many times in this post.Not as much Snow as Syracuse tonight and nothing to write home about.
January 22, 2013 18:54:48 No more taxes!!!   To\"I who cares\",you seem to not be a resident of Masonville but have issues with the roads. Whats the deal???? I don\'t want more taxes just to have more pavement. As town minutes read in the past our hwy. dept. is one of the most thrifty in the county!!!!
January 22, 2013 18:41:36 forcaster   Cold,cold ,cold and about 4 inches of snow. Right now it is about 2 degrees and dropping. Upstate weather is great and getting better.
January 22, 2013 14:11:37 A Person who is sick of all this comments...   Who gives a S______ about all this postings.. Hows the snow up there ??
January 22, 2013 04:50:46 1 Who Cares   Bertimouse weren't you the project manager for the sidney high school fields the first time they got installed wrong? You should run for highway supertendent works the same way.
January 21, 2013 22:38:30 bertimouse   Observer: Hear Here. Muslims and Islams and Hindus and Buddhists are Not our Enemy Here but Our Neighbors Here Now on Our Planet Earth. Its a Small Planet Now And Like it or Not Jesus and GOD wants us ALL to Love Everyone and to Live in Peace with Everyone. Can You Deal with that?
January 21, 2013 22:21:36 bertimouse   1 Who Cares - Yup You Do have to be a Resident for that and No I dont know how many seats are up for election this year. Depends on where yall are talking about=Town,County,State or Federal. Yall gotta be a wee more specific,eh? Thanks.
January 21, 2013 17:34:36 Observer   MacDonalds settles suit for $700,000.00 brought against them by Muslims in the Detroit area. The Muslims contend that MacDonalds sold non-hala chicken. We are going to see more and more of the Muslim influence on our laws and services.
January 20, 2013 19:03:55 the real what?   voter, you are directing your question to the wrong what?, you need to ask What!
January 20, 2013 17:47:39 voter   What? would you want someone who lives out of Masonville working as superintendent and spending the taxpayers money or would you want someone who lives here and has to pay taxes working for us?
January 20, 2013 17:07:59 Just thinking   Snowman, maybe it was a gas well exploding!! No, can not be that, people do not want any money to come to Masonville!!!
January 20, 2013 16:48:56 wondering   snowman, as long as it did not do any harm, no big deal just someone having some fun probably.
January 20, 2013 10:07:54 Old Fa rt   May be it was someones propane tank blowing up
January 20, 2013 09:09:51 the real what?   I wonder if it was a RPG or a bazooka, the Libtards on the news and papers keep saying they have to restrict legal gun ownership because citizens are buying grenade launchers and bazooka's online. All you guys that have a mount to install a grenade launcher on your rifle or shotgun, you must register it as a assault weapon, it is in Gov. Cuomo's gun law. Impeach the Libtards, Cuomo and Obama.
January 20, 2013 09:03:02 The Old Man   What! If you saw this cone start to be destroyed why did you not take a minute and move it back off the side of the road and save yourself some money? It only takes a minute to help someone out and it really does not hurt you, even if 'IT IS NOT YOUR JOB"!!!!!!!
January 20, 2013 08:56:51 WHAT THE HECK!!!!   We live up SteamMill and the loud boom shook the house and made the dogs bark. Still don\'t know what it was.
January 20, 2013 08:45:50 wondering   Snowman, how loud was the explosion? Did it scare animals or do damage?
January 20, 2013 05:33:23 What!   1 who cares I cannot find anywhere that states you have to be a resident to run for Highway Supertendent in Masonville. I amsure it is written somewhere. It would be nice to see a couple of people run for the office as with any team change is good. Just wondering does the highway workers and their leader plow their road cones over and destroy them,the bottom of the pine hill spur by the bridge (they patched the road not very good work at all)drove over the big box cone to repair the road now I see they have been plowing over thier cone. They have to be expensive items to destroy this cone has been laying on the side of the bridge for over a year now. I wonder if we had a bettor leader we would not be wasting money on equipment that under his watch is being destroyed. You would never see this abuse of equipment under the other supertendent's
January 19, 2013 22:00:13 snowman   Off rt206 about half way towards trout creek.
January 19, 2013 20:36:19 listener   snowman, where do you live? which way out of Masonville?
January 19, 2013 17:45:30 snowman   What was that loud explosion i heard today(Sat)around 4-5 pm shook my house?
January 19, 2013 11:45:57 Observer   Only our concerns about the hickville town of Masonville should matter to us and appear on this site? ROFLOL !! Do you realize that 99.99999999999999% of the world does not even know Masonville exists and does not care? Even go so far to say that not even all of the county of Delaware knows Masonville exists. I do believe the owner of this site intended it for general topics as well as expressing concerns and ideas for the Town of Masonville. Let me ask you this: Do you realize there is more to the Town of Masonville than just the hamlet between the signs on Route 8 and 206? What affects the rest of the country affects Masonville and that includes the school district and our 2nd Admendment rights.
January 19, 2013 11:23:05 taxpayer   Who cares about the Sidney Master Plan, it doesn't concern us, it is not the school or school taxes.
January 19, 2013 10:16:01 "shears rd bears"   thank god for gun control and artificial turf. we are free, free at last, now they have something else to cry is the time to git on with the state of the town.the town needs help, only your viable concerns and constructive input can and should appear on this site. now speak up or shut up.
January 19, 2013 06:04:51 1 Who cares   Does any know if you have to be a resident to run for highway supertendent.Also how many seats are up for election this year.
January 18, 2013 20:37:09 bertimouse   Village of Sidney Master Plan: Good thinking to hold 2 sessions on a Saturday. Well I can attend but not as a resident of the Village but itd be interesting. There are lots of future issues the Village needs to consider-flood plans,sewers always backing into homes during floods,the Hospital Funding,community access to the HS swimming pool,taxes,insurance, bla bla bla. Dont know if anyone outside the Village cares about this except me cause Im always just curious is all and Im NEVER going to EVER apologize for that.Should I apologize for NOT apologizing now?
January 18, 2013 20:20:46 bertimouse   My first amendment right will over rule your second amendment right every time. Yah right. Thats not true anymore either. Lots to read up on the changes there too. Cyber bullies are everywhere now and no one seems to respect or care about anyone anymore but just want to discuss things with So Much Malice to anymore who disagrees with them. Everyone wants to be so RIGHT and to WIN these days. I dont understand that anymore cant say that they were wrong or Sorry anymore because I understand how we all go off the deep end once in awhile now FCOL about things and its happening more frequently all over our Country and our Earth but are we not all supposed to be brothers and sisters on the same Planet? Do I have to go live in a hole somewhere just because of my sometimes totally Unwelcome comments? NO. My Parents didnt raise me that way darnit. NEVER Give Up My Mom said NEVER. I apologize here for lashing out the way I did recently about that Puppy. All I expected was a little sympathy in my mad Max, irrational grief rantings and what I got in return was not expected and some of you really Hurt Me. Thanks Allot because you have made me Stronger and more Jaded. Life goes on. Forgive me for talking so Personally here sometimes because I thought yet sometimes forget that Masonville is still a small Friendly Town. Thanks for reminding me that this Message Board does NOT represent the TOM nor any of my good Neighbors here who btw really helped us. A big shout out to you who know who you are. Many Hearts Flowers and Love to All of you. I Love MV.
January 18, 2013 06:05:23 Sidney Master Plan 011813   1/18/13 FYI.. The Village of Sidney is seeking public input to help update the village’s Master Plan. The sessions will all be held at the Sidney high school tonight from 7:00 to 9:00 PM, and tomorrow from 2:00 to 4:00 PM and 5:00 to 7:00 PM, more information is available today at 563-2324.
January 17, 2013 23:52:46 the real what?   "A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government." -George Washington"
January 17, 2013 23:51:28 the real what?   What? rights were taken away from me? Well my right to privacy for one. I own a .22 cal small game rifle. It has a detachable clip, King Gov.Huomo (no offense to the lgbt citizens, I just thought it was funny) says my little .22 is a 'ASSAULT' weapon and must be registered or I will be arrested as a felon, my gun taken away and never be able to own a firearm again! How many lives did the Libtard save with that law today? NONE. What? is going to stop them from deciding next year,they want to take all our guns away, and they already have our names and addresses, come pick them up.
January 17, 2013 20:58:49 i took the time to vote   Typical complainer. Too busy to do their civic duty to vote, but not too busy to run their mouth .
January 17, 2013 20:34:00 bertimouse   What Thanks. But I wanna keep my guns and will put a note on my Masonville door that says Due to the increased cost for ammunition Do Not Expect A Warning Shot! No existing guns need regulations but future ones for now Yes. Thanks and Sorry for many things btw. I couldnt make it for the SCSD 2nd budget vote but my NO Vote wouldnt have made one bit of difference because every time they get a NO Vote they just keep on putting it up for another vote until they get their Yes Vote-just like the Feds in DC. This TOM bulletin board is great because it is exactly a mirror of whats happening there. What you are spot on about the Turf Field. Was just talking to a contractor from Afton today about the Sidney Vote-every local school district HS Foot Ball team competes against one another and when one district gets a Turf field then they ALL want one! Vestal VVS district started it, then Oneonta, then Greene. SCSD never maintains anything. Ask them at the next monthly SCSD BOE mtg to see what their projected maintenance plan and budget will be for this new project. Yah right like they even have one. Thanks.
January 17, 2013 17:48:35 confused   lets se, 49 million gun owners out of 315 million people
January 17, 2013 17:39:00 what?   Observer is that the number that left with you from the mental hospital!
January 17, 2013 16:33:06 Observer   Well, if I am way out in left field I have lots of company. About 49 million. :)
January 17, 2013 13:55:25 Hatw!   WHAT??? i agree with What! the board did not do the taxpayers justice we got screw by the town/county/ federal payroll tax and the state is on the way. health insurance,car instrance,school tax do you realize how much the state takes away from you on a gallon of gas? food is going through the roof when was the last time you were able to buy a real good peice of meat.I hear that there is a toilet paper tax comming soon as well the goverment feels that they will get more from everyone because we all have a a$% to wipe. Tell me if i am wrong WHAT??? we now pay over 50% of every dollar to the government at all levels. So WHAT??? you are ready for another increase next year it is ok to you that they raise it over the 2% cap again. let me know what you get for your dollar on the local level because I do not see any thing good of value. And please do not tell me what a good job the highway crew is doing because everyone knows the work is garbage.
January 17, 2013 13:22:06 ?tahw   Observer the truth hurts that you are way out in left field Enjoy your own reality
January 17, 2013 13:17:11 Observer   When your argument fails, resort to insults! LOL
January 17, 2013 13:15:32 ?tahw   Observer it is wackos like you who should not own any firearms. Get back to prepping your bunker for the day when our country is overrun.
January 17, 2013 13:08:39 Observer   ?tahw - What right or rights have been taken aways from us? The right to be considered innocent until proven gulity.Under the law just signed we are automatically guilty the moment it was signed. The right to act on my own behalf without government interference. Under the Nazi law just signed into law by our Der Furher Coumo the very fact I own a firearm makes me one of the "bad" guys. Under the previous law each county was responsible for the issuance of hand-gun permits or licenses. Under the new law this will have to be approved by the Superintendent of State Police. The New York State police are considered by many to be one of the most oppressive law organizations in the USA if not the world. A comparision made between the NYS POlice and the Russian State Police showed you were better off being arrested by the Russian State Police. Now this organization will be telling me based on thier own whim of the moment every five years whether or not I am worthy in thier eyes to own a handgun and soon any firearm. Right now it is "am I a crininal?" "am I mentally capable of having a firearm" within 5 years it will be "is the color of my eyes or hair suitable?" "do I look like a criminal?' "have I had a traffic ticket in my life?" etc.
January 17, 2013 13:05:15 ?tahw   What answer the question. What right has been taken away
January 17, 2013 12:54:56 what?   ?tahw; if Cuomo and Obama's gun restrictions are so great, then why, locally and across the country are there so many law enforcement officials saying publicly that they will not enforce it? One Sheriff said that there are many current laws that the Federal Govt., and Obama refuse to allow him to enforce including immigration laws,so he doesn't have a problem not enforcing this one.
January 17, 2013 12:52:12 ?tahw   What right has been taken away from you.
January 17, 2013 12:35:36 what?   Observer is right, they will try to take our guns away. Who is safer now that I can only put seven rounds in my ten rd clip for my .22 when I go small game hunting? Zero lives will be saved do to King Obama and King Cuomo's gun restrictions. Many law abiding good Americans have had there rights stripped from them due to these gun bills. 80 million gun owners in the U.S. will vote these Libtards out of office just like they did after Clinton's gun ban. From 1994 when Clinton banned guns to 2002 the voters voiced their opinion at the ballot box and Clinton's gun ban was thrown out. King Cuomo just ruined his chances of ever becoming President.
January 17, 2013 12:33:43 Observer   ?tahw - Let me ask you a question. I own guns that use clips that will hold more than 10 rounds. The new law states I may not put more than seven rounds in the clip. Now do you honestly think a person bent on doing damage with a gun with a clip that holds more than 7 rounds is going to give that ANY consideration? On the other hand if I load more than 7 rounds in my 10 round clip than I am automatically a criminal. One "point" in the law is what feature makes a firearm an assault rifle is a thumb hole stock. (It needs only ONE distinguishing point to be declared an assault rifle) I own 2 bolt action rifles, one is a 30-06 with a 4 round mag and the other is a single shot target 22 calibre rifle. Both have custom thumb hole stocks. Under the new Nazi law both are now assault weapons. Let me carry this over into already existing laws as far as motor vehicles are concerned. NYS law states if I refuse to take a alcohol breathalyzer test or a blood test my driving privilege is immediately and automatically revoked. I do not have to be under the influence; all I have to do is refuse. Back to my rifles. I do not have to have any intent to use them in any illegal fashion, (they can be hanging on my wall)just the fact I own them now makes me a criminal. 99.9999% of all so called assault weapons are purchased more for the macho image than for any other reason. USA has one of the lowest murder rates per thousand than any country than bans or heavily controls gun ownershp. Switzerland sees 50% of all adults owning firearms and the murder rate in the country is practially non-existent. In fact in Switzerland murder by firearm is an anomaly.
January 17, 2013 12:23:07 WHAT!   What? yea really consertive raised your taxes and will continue if the tax payers do not hold them to the law no property tax should increase more than 2%.Same at the county level no excuses period.
January 17, 2013 12:07:15 ?tahw   Observer why don't you read the entire legislation with open eyes. Your weapons are not being taken away. Instead of listening to the BS of the NRA, read it again and make up your own mind.
January 17, 2013 11:48:03 Observer   Just been reading the bill signed by King Coumo concerning firearms (S 2230) and (A 2388). Scary stuff to see our rights to own firearms and the right to defend ourselves with firearms being taken away from us with not even a whimper from the public. I wonder if the 7 round law applies to our trigger happy law enforcement as well? I QUOTE: " THIS YEAR WILL GO DOWN IN HISTORY, FOR THE FIRST TIME, A CIVILIZED NATION HAS FULL GUN REGISTRATION. OUR STREETS WILL BE SAFER, OUR POLICE MORE EFFICIENT, AND THE WORLD WILL FOLLOW OUR LEAD INTO THE FUTURE!" ADOLF HITLER 1935. King Coumo said pretty much the same thing on TV the other day. Of course banning firearms makes our police more "efficient" makes it a lot easier to round us up when our Nazi state decides it is time to do that. Now the federal gov under the "leadership" of the smiling idiot in the White House will do the same as King Coumo. Can posting this get me on someone's list? Probably if I am not already on that list.
January 17, 2013 11:45:00 what?   I'm also confused as to why? so many are using my screen name, can't? y'all think of one more original?
January 17, 2013 11:40:58 what?   I'm confused, I thought I voted for the most conservative candidates. Who was on the ballot that was more conservative than those who were elected?
January 17, 2013 10:47:02 Hard working taxpayer   Only landowner/deed holders (names on a property deed) should be able to vote on matters that envolve taxes based on land/home value.
January 17, 2013 10:02:43 What!   WHAT???? yes I do the taxpayer got screwed again because people refuse to due thier Jobs for which they are payed. I get it, It is the good ol boys crew.
January 17, 2013 09:56:47 What???   YOU JUST DONT GET IT!
January 17, 2013 05:49:06 What!   WHAT I feel that the board did not work hard enough to lower the budget it would have taken time and a really thought out process to acheive this. WHAT it is easy to blame the state that is the problem it is the boards responsabilty to keep us under 2% even a decline would be nice but no lets just blame the state and raise the taxes 4%.
January 16, 2013 23:40:37 what?   Again, I would like to know how many voted for the expensive, toxic field, and are against the state creating jobs and lowering taxes and fuel prices with natural gas.
January 16, 2013 23:35:41 what?   Why? does so many use my what?,why? are there so many WHATS?I don't want to change my nom de plume,.
January 16, 2013 19:21:27 Old Fa rt   Artificial Turf,you all will be sorry after a few years
January 16, 2013 18:18:37 WHAT????   The Town Budget is raised 4-6% just by the State Mandated insurance and retirement costs! The 2% cap is a sham and the State knows it! That is why they created the ability to override the tax cap. They knw they locals could not comply. However, the State politicians look like the hereos and the locals like the villans. This sets up a framework of eventually doing away with local government and moving toward a big, regionalized government. Imagine how responsive your representatives will be when the closest one is 2 counties away? School taxes are 1/2 of local taxes and at least you get to face your local town representative on the street.
January 16, 2013 14:53:42 What!   What the vote is over move on what is going to happen next year It seems ok to you to vote to over ride the 2 percent tax cap with the roads in the condition they are you will proberly see a 5 to 9 percent increas next year pay attention
January 16, 2013 08:34:01 what?   What!, you keep complaining about the bypassing of the tax cap, but what? is your thoughts on pouring more $multi-millions$ of 'free' taxpayer dollars on a athletic field?
January 16, 2013 08:31:03 what?   You forget local voter, these people don't care about all the millions of 'free' money that is spent. They don't seem to care that Sidney is at the bottom in the state academically. I would like to know how many voted for the expensive toxic field, and are against the state creating jobs and lowering taxes and fuel prices with natural gas.
January 16, 2013 08:29:18 What!   Reasonable They still campained not to raise taxes but our board voted to override the 2% TAX LEVY AND RAISED OUR TAXES.You can say what you want about what hapenned years ago but today we cannot afford any more increases and the board over rides the 2% TAX LEVY AND RAISED OUR TAXES.Same at the county level.
January 16, 2013 08:04:03 local voter   First, we spent tons of money on our Masonville and S.C. schools and they were closed, now money on the field for the high school, do you think that will help our academic rate come up, probably not, but we can have a top notch athletic field for all to admire!!!!! I for one am not proud to live in Sidney school district and never have been. (3 generations of my family have attended this school and it was always about "Sidney"!!!!!!!!!!!!
January 16, 2013 07:44:11 thankful   what? I would recommend to you, to not allow any of you five children to use the new field and to not play at any school that has artificial turf. That way your children will be safe. Thanks for your concern about the welfare of all the children.
January 16, 2013 07:06:11 what?   All that voted for the field should have done some research. Artificial turf costs MORE in the short term AND long term. The only ones who say it costs less are the ones selling them. When the air temperature is in the 80’s or 90’s, temperatures above the turf can exceed 150° F., sure does limit it's usage. And there is more injuries with artificial turf. In a survey of NFL players, 74% preferred natural grass systems and said “make all fields grass to prevent injuries.” Artificial turf infill contains a mix of chemicals. These chemicals include,rubber chemicals, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and heavy metals – lead, zinc and cadmium. It is recommended to attempt to remove the pellets from shoes and clothes prior to leaving the fields. At home, shake out your children’s equipment and clothes in the garage or over the garbage. Have your child shower and wash thoroughly after playing on the field. Artificial fields also increase Staph infection, unless it is treated with antimicrobial chemicals, increasing our children's exposure to even more chemicals.
January 16, 2013 06:55:06 Reasonable   People should really be informed. There has not been "new" taxes in Town for many years. The 2% tax cap is a joke as the unfunded mandates from the State (retirement and health insurance) result in a 4-6% increase almost every year before you even consider anything else such a increased fuel costs, road materials, etc. The Town has been working with less each and every year and still maintains the smallest budget of any Town in Delaware County. I go to the Board meetings and stay informed...maybe others should too!
January 16, 2013 05:05:23 1-1613   At least the school let you know of the tax increase we have sitting board members in our town and in Delhi at the supervispors meeting that ran a campain of no new taxs got elected and vetoed the 2% cap raised our taxes but that is ok right!
January 16, 2013 01:56:30 Jan 16 2013   Outcome of the Capital Vote Proposition #1 (auditorium, field project, and boilers) Passed 539 321 Proposition #2 (Capital Reserve) Passed 581 272 ((keep in mind these numbers reflect all the NON-TAX payers that vote too eg. HS students ))
January 15, 2013 19:42:53 I voted NO   I don't see why there should even be sports in school. I thought schools were for education. I have been paying taxes for decades and I don't even have kids!!
January 15, 2013 19:37:19 Old Fa rt   This gun BS is just BS,the bad guy is not going to count the bullets,OH no i have too many bullets. WAKE UP!!!!!!
January 15, 2013 18:15:47 Observer   Well, King Coumo has signed the bill. The first step in taking away all gun rights in NYS. Heart of the bill is taking aways the counties right to issue handgun licenses and giving it to the state. Plus a ban on more than 7 bullets in a clip. Boy that is going to stop the criminals!!
January 15, 2013 15:19:34 Who!   I voted yes to the Project and no to giving money for them to bank
January 15, 2013 15:17:38 Me   I voted no
