Febuary 06, 2012 15:22:02 what?   Fyi bertimouse; "NO ONE IN THIS COUNTRY SAID what you implied", YES Roseanne Barr DID it was on ALL the news, and she said she was serious.FAT CHANCE she will win. I know for a fund raiser she could sing the National Anthem grab her crotch while giving the finger AGAIN! MAYBE SHE SHOULD BE SENT TO A "RE-EDUCATION CAMP"..Let her run. Support her. She'll take the votes of some of the whackos that would have voted for Obama.
Febuary 05, 2012 23:29:47 bertimouse   Dear What: about your comments: 1. Why shouldn't Wall St Bankers give up income over $100 million? 2. NO ONE IN THIS COUNTRY SAID what you implied about a)Wall Street bankers should be forced to give up any income over $100 million, sent to re-education camps, or be executed by beheading if they resisted. Dude - your postings are SCARY. Please stop. Thanks. Please post for ALL of our Future from Now On, Thanks.
Febuary 05, 2012 23:12:34 bertimouse   Tough question: I am a conserv/lib rep. Other half is a conserv/right dem. SO GO FIGURE, Argh! PL&H Yall. Please remember that We Are Local and will Always care for Each Other No Matter WHAT the Politics, because we are Here and We Care because We Are Here.
Febuary 04, 2012 07:20:31 what?   She (Roseanne)is running under the 'Green Party'. HA HA! She said Wall Street bankers should be forced to give up any income over $100 million, be sent to re-education camps, or be executed by beheading if they resisted. Sounds like Castro to me! She won't have my vote.
Febuary 03, 2012 14:21:48 FIDEL CASTRO FOR PRESDIENT   I Would Vote for Fidel Castro or Raul Castro. To straighten this bull *CENSORED* here in USA
Febuary 03, 2012 07:42:59 TX-1   If election were held today,who would you vote for president?
Febuary 01, 2012 18:31:15 bertimouse   But all the commercials with their innuendos are OK during the Superbowl, right? Lighten Up, eh?
January 29, 2012 21:56:48 dog lover   Town board meeting Wed. Night at 7:30 maybe more of us should show up and see what is going on in our town.
January 29, 2012 21:56:26 dog lover   Town board meeting Wed. Night at 7:30 maybe more of us should show up and see what is going on in our town.
January 29, 2012 21:01:50 bertimouse   2012 is our last year folks; according to the Mayan Calendar and others. For What it's worth yall: Grow a Great Garden this year.
January 26, 2012 13:02:36 GBBC Feb 17-20, 2012   fyi.. the annual Great Backyard Bird Count will be Feb 17-20, 2012 (Fri-Mon) if interested google: 'bird count' or 'GBBC' to get to the correct website to obtain checklist and photo-contest inf. (( My kids have been participating in this event since Pre-K... It's funny how things stick. Maybe if there is enough interest, we could get the young and old together at our local library, townhall or MV Country Cafe... to share photos and stories and upload some favorite pictures. Maybe even create some local framed 'Artwork' to be added to the new townhall lobby. Just a thought!.))
January 26, 2012 06:58:20 what?   Ha, Ha, good one! But maybe this is the sound he shoots for. The voice that made him made him multi-millions!
January 25, 2012 19:46:50 Observer   If I spelled it correctly it would be censored.
January 25, 2012 19:45:14 Observer   Actually This idiot Tyler singing the national anthem sounded more like a monkey with his testicals caught in a bear trap.
January 25, 2012 10:44:52 Masonville Resident   Are you all kidding me? What's the dogs on the loose in town and you have nothing else to complain about! What you got was a "Rock & Roll" version of the National Anthem when Steve Tyler sang it...get over it!
January 25, 2012 07:37:11 TX-1   This is the only country ,that the national athem can be screw up,dont get it. it should be sang the way it is and thats it,it is so disrespectful.
January 24, 2012 18:53:14 dog owner   Does anyone know how much dog licenses are this year and if the dogs have been counted around the entire town?
January 24, 2012 04:00:36 what?   At last years 2011 Superbowl Christina Aguilera 'performed' the National Anthem.She forgot the words. Instead of singing, "O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming," Aguilera inserted the line, "What so proudly we watched at the twilight's last reaming."...During a presidential campaign stop in 2008, Hillary Clinton's microphone picked up her earnest attempt at 'The Star Spangled Banner.' WOW! Terrible voice, but of course she didn't know her microphone was on, and she wasn't getting paid for her performance.
January 23, 2012 20:32:48 bertimouse   Prayers to Alabama tonight: more folks homeless, more folks in need.
January 23, 2012 20:31:07 bertimouse   Political Comment Here: Romney or Ron Paul should win, not Newt. Newt has too much bad Karma, and some nasty baggage. Our gut feeling is that the guy is BAD NEWS for the Rep. Party. We think that Ron Paul maybe a dark horse with the Teas, but whatever.
January 23, 2012 20:25:40 bertimouse   Long Live Steven Tyler. He is a Senior Citizen now yall & one of the few great musicians who have survived. He probably has Larungitis now, LOL. Give him a freaking break, Well Maybe much did he actually get paid for this? If he was Paid for this event then Yes, he should have sang the words right, eh?
January 23, 2012 15:27:45 what?   Tyler flubbed one teensy lyric, sang “as bomb bursting in air” instead of “the bombs bursting in air.”Sounded just like Steven Tyler. If you ask Steven Tyler to sing it you'll get Steven Tyler. I'll take a old, worn out rock star's performance over some young harpy extending the song by five minutes so they can add warbles and yodels to it. It wasn't perfect, but who was expecting it to be? He is a screeching screamer, and sang it with respect. If you didn't like it blame the NFL, they knew what it would sound like. He didn't grab his crotch and spit in disrespect like Roseanne Barr.
January 23, 2012 12:00:14 Observer   What a massive insult to our country and all who have given their all for it. The *CENSORED* who sang the National Anthem at the football game yesterday was not only horrible but completely insulting to our National Anthem. As far as I am concerned singing our National Anthem other than the way it is written should NOT be allowed. We do not need people like Tyler and Madonna and that *CENSORED* Rosie O'Donnell and the like "singing" it. I hope I did not step on anyones "artistic license".
January 23, 2012 09:20:59 TX-1   Is there much Snow on the ground?
January 22, 2012 19:16:13 masonville resident   Looks like winter has finally gotten here and now we are in for more rain, just what we do not need.
January 19, 2012 18:36:33 bertimouse   Resident: Your right on that one, but if you look closely at those nubby things on the metal roof there in front of the entrance, those are "snow catchers" which err, slow down the amount of snow that will dump off that metal roof - also there's gutters installed there. Maybe at some future date we could install a roof over the ramp to reduce the err, insurance risk of an icy walkway ramp...your absolutely right though, the main roof should have been designed to extend out to cover the front entrance but yes - we love this outstanding accomplishment & are so proud.
January 19, 2012 11:39:40 Resident of Town   Wonderful job on the new Town Hall. A big thank you to all who worked to make it possible at the lowest cost. Just one question? Why was it designed with a gabled entrance with the entrance doors on the side under the gable? Isn't this asking for problems with snow, ice and rain? But non-the-less. Great looking addition to our town.
January 19, 2012 03:50:31 what?   Hopefully someone finds that paddle, 2012 could turn out to be a good new year if someone does.
January 18, 2012 19:24:50 bertimouse   What? LOL The republicans say the same thing! We are all up the creek without a paddle no matter whom we vote for, ARGH!
January 16, 2012 18:58:16 FYI School Budget 2012-2013   Insteresting School Tax article in 'TheDailyStar' 1/16/12 Rural School Funds, Tax Cap Face Scrutiny. .... Governor's to release proposed budget Tuesday 1/17/12.
January 15, 2012 08:17:29 what?   The democrats fix= We need to tax more,tax,tax,tax! But they will not stop the spend,spend,spend! Their plan will never work.
January 15, 2012 08:12:04 what?   It's cold, freeezing! That's what govt. needs to do. Freeze the spending. Our homes and local town govt. makes do with what they have. Our state and federal spending just keeps growing. Obama added more National debt in 19 months than ALL the Presidents from Washington to Clinton combined! The debt is now over 15 TRILLION!3.98 billion of debt added per day! The Obama administration is on the same prescription meds as AIG execs.The Congressional Budget Office reports President Obama's budget will rack up massive deficits even after the economy recovers, forcing the nation to borrow $9.3 trillion more over the next decade. We are going on to the forth year of the Obama presidency, In the first two years Obama's failed stimulus cost more than the entire cost of the Iraq War under President Bush, or six years of that war.
January 14, 2012 01:38:05 bertimouse   Hey Denise, U R SO RIGHT! Check this info out: The proposed property tax cap, which was approved by the Legislature is "aimed at reversing the economic decline in many parts of the state outside of NYC. It also seeks to curb soaring property tax bills in areas of upstate New York". Yah right. As outlined by the NYS Republican controlled Assembly, the deal has some exemptions. Among them;contributions that school Districts make into the State Pension System would be Partly Discounted so that Pension Increases of More Than 2 Percent...would not be counted against the 2 Percent Cap. Districts would be able to adjust tax levies IF New Development in their areas increased the tax base. The tax cap can also be overridden with 60 percent of a local school district vote. As outlined by the Assembly, the deal would have some exemptions. Among them, contributions that school districts make into the state pension system would be partly discounted so that pension increases of more than 2 percent from the previous year would not be counted against the 2 percent cap. [i.e. the SCSD BOE is going to hide this figure, yall.] Districts would be able to adjust tax levies if new development in their areas increase the tax base...WE VOTED NOT!
January 13, 2012 10:47:11 Denis Burpoe dburpoe@ Good morning, I just trying ti figure out this 2% cap on school taxes. OK the Governors budget comes out on the 17th of Jan. then the schools figure out what they get in aid then put a budget together to introduce to the tax payers.(Remember I did not say Voters)Now is where I am confused and would like a little input. Then the Board of Education and the Supertendent realizes that 2% will not work and they need 60% of the voters to approve a tax increase of more that 2% that they can present to the voters.Does this mean that if only 100 voters vote and 60 of them agree to a tax increase we can get any increase that they deem neccessary? I think we need to pay attention.
January 13, 2012 08:01:06 Part-Timer   What happened at the Qway?
January 12, 2012 21:38:35 voter   Very quiet in Masonville, was at the Qway yesterday and it is very strange to be so quiet, too bad someone had a bad day and caused so much of a disturbance for so many. Maybe that person should get a life and leave others alone.
January 12, 2012 07:29:16 Grumpy Ernst Keidel But you have to admit, the weather IS interesting here! Yesterday we had a beautifully sunny Spring-like day with walk-around-with-your-shirt-off weather and today we have school delays and closings.
January 10, 2012 08:17:09 masonville resident   Is there nothing interesting going on in the town of Masonville anymore? This is the quietest this board has ever been. Other than the weather there must be something good going on. The school board meeting is tonight at 7 p.m. if anyone is interested.
January 06, 2012 21:48:17 bertimouse   ps forgive us - snowman should have been un-capitalized.
January 06, 2012 21:45:12 bertimouse   Here we hear Snowman.
January 06, 2012 15:44:32 snowman   I always get a good laugh from this board keep it up. Don`t give the haters to much power by all responding. Happy New Year Everyone.
January 05, 2012 22:49:14 bertimouse   All of Gods pieces of work have the right to speak here. We bid a Very Happy 2012 New Year - to all of our good neighbors-the big, the loud, the quiet & the small & the proud. Glad tidings of better fortunes for all so that this Message Board can transcend all of these brawls.
January 05, 2012 14:39:03 what?   Inch or two, cold as heck, but it is suppose to warm up by the weekend.
January 05, 2012 07:37:00 Part-Timer   Hi,much snow up there?
January 04, 2012 14:54:26 what?   I use a ?. If I use my real name are you going to copy that too? All the more reason to use alias's. Heck, John Galt even posted on this site.
January 04, 2012 12:19:04 what   duh who
January 04, 2012 11:07:20 Part-Timer   Why cant we all get alone?
January 03, 2012 15:00:12 what?   That, and we don't have to worry about someone showing up at our house and beating us up because of a difference of opinion, or shooting someone like bertimouse threatened me with once. It would be nice if we could be civil even if anonymously. If you don't like someone tell them to their face, anonymously beating someone up is a sign of a coward.
January 03, 2012 11:46:55 duh   It's nice to be a coward, so we can hide. This way we are able to say what we want to and still be nice to a person's face.
January 02, 2012 18:18:21 Frank   John who
January 02, 2012 18:05:17 john   everybody should post there real name here .would solve alot of b.s
January 02, 2012 17:38:30 what?   I was thinking the same. Would be nice if we could be civil, even if only a few days. The holiday spirit just must have not rubbed off on certain people. Happy new year! (hopefully prosperous new year for the country lets try to be optimistic). Happy new year everyone!
January 02, 2012 15:47:52 masonville resident   Now Now, Let's be nice,it is a new year.
January 01, 2012 17:57:18 who?5SZ3Y   Thank god there are no trees to harvest we really be screwed.
January 01, 2012 17:49:50 who?   When Robin Little is the voice of reason in Maaonville this town is screwed
January 01, 2012 09:13:39 Rich   Happy New Year to everyone! I hope 2012 brings you all the best.
December 30, 2011 11:53:21 Robin Little   It's nice to see people care about others and watch out for people that are in a situation that isn't always safe. If you don't like the people hanging out at the Quickway, then stay away or don't look at them when you pass by. What if the person working at the store was your family, would you complain then? We never know who could be passing through our town. There has been incidents at the the store in the past; it has been broken into. We are a small town, so we need to take care of each other.
December 29, 2011 05:26:00 crzyflea   Sick of sounds like they can't see the world beyond the tip of their nose. They can take their business elsewhere - and maybe pick up a dictionary while they are at it so that they can learn to spell. Caitlin has it right (and thank you for saying it young lady) - as any young woman who has ever worked at the store can likely tell you, the regulars who hang out at the end of the night make your night enjoyable and put your mind at ease about working in a little store in a town that most consider the middle of nowhere.
December 29, 2011 04:07:51 what?   Don't worry about it Miss Jackson, this person just had to put their two cents in,and add to the gossip in Masonville that they blast,a hypocrite.If this person wants to see some 'freaks' (I'm sure they are all good people also) go to the Walton Country Store, anytime but especially after dark.And that place is usually packed also. I doubt that place or our store sees any drop in costumers because of this.Like the 'Official' website says, Masonville is a town with "very nice people."
December 29, 2011 00:48:45 CAITLYN MARIE JACKSON   Dear sick of matinville ( spelling ) As an employee of the MASONVILLE QUICKWAY or as you call it the convience store I would just like to to inform you, that people that you are refering to as \"freaks\" are in fact paying customers no different then you when you come in. Did you ever think that those people that hang out there at night are there to relax after a hard day of work and just want a cup of coffee or a snack. You \" sick of matinville \" make me sick. Let me throw this one at you - I am an 18 year old girl who is fresh out of high school and just wanted to make some money. I close the store almost every night and when im all done theres one of those \" freak\" as you refered to making sure that I am safe until i get to my car. Personality these people are extreamly freindly, helpful, funny, protective and the most kind hearted people you could ever meet. Not only am i greatfull but so are my parents because these people are making sure that im safe and that no harm happens. So before the next time you bash them sure YOU have YOU\'R FACTS in line.
December 28, 2011 21:28:25 Observer   I am not sure people hang out at the convienence store as protection for the help but for sure it does help to discourage any ideas a person bent on mischief might have.
December 28, 2011 13:42:44 Part-Timer   It was so nice for a while
December 28, 2011 08:11:41 censored   I told you sick right in the gutter. bertimouse can\'1t help herself ,himself right to the gutter.
December 27, 2011 21:04:30 bertimouse   Here HEAR masonville resident! And Dear sick: your name says it all. Why do you think that the TOM needs no extra protection from Police Enforcement, eh? Its because we protect(and yes hang out)to look after the women that work there - DUH. If U dont like it then tell Mr. Mirabito to take his freaking high priced gas elsewhere. Were doing him a favor, sir and he KNOWS IT!
December 27, 2011 14:12:07 masonville resident   sick of this... since you do not care for our town, I hope you can find somewhere else to be. This site is not that bad, except for people like you, so please leave and do not bother to return!!!!
December 27, 2011 14:06:07 censored   Thanks sick of this. Now we are going to have to put up with self serving mayor of masonville bertimouse. This board was actually becoming a tool for the people you just put this board back in the gutter. bertimouse will surly put in back in the gutter.
December 27, 2011 13:42:35 sick of this matinville town. lmao   This site is the dumbest thing I've ever seen. Masonville is the most gossipy please I have ever seen. And for all the freaks that hang out at the store have no life. You would think Mirabitos would do something about it,but they aren't that smart ether,it's all about money.I know a lot of people wont go their any more because of it.
December 27, 2011 13:06:31 Part-Timer   HELLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
December 26, 2011 19:18:40 masonville resident   Sounds like everything is peaceful in Masonville, not much on the message board. Nice way to end 2011 and start 2012, happy new year to all.
December 25, 2011 09:04:40 Grumpy Ernst Keidel CDR, Well, so much for having a White Christmas! The weather is great; I\'ve even been outside without a shirt!
December 24, 2011 13:39:17 what?   Hope you had a Joyful Solstice crzyflea, and happy Hanukkah,and Kwanzaa for all those who observe them also. And a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
December 23, 2011 22:05:05 crzyflea   Hope everyone has had a Joyful Solstice.
December 23, 2011 06:59:05 JOKER   WOW!!! 2 full days without any writing on the board. looks like everyone is busy with the Holydays. HEY have a good one evreyone!!
December 21, 2011 12:33:55 Grumpy Ernst Keidel CDR, Just saw an ambulance hauling up Steam Mill Road. I worry; is it for someone we know?
December 20, 2011 16:40:02 interested person   Next school board meeting is 1/10/12 at 7pm at high school.
December 20, 2011 15:04:38 Mormon Hollow Farm   Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from us at Mormon Hollow Farm. It certainly has been a challenging year but a good one.
December 20, 2011 11:39:53 Observer   "And shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from thier sins. Now all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet saying.. Behold a virgin shall be with child and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, with being interpreted is, Ggod with us." Matthew 1:21-23. TIS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON. A blessed and wonderful Christmas to all.
December 20, 2011 08:52:37 JOKER   Thanks Rich for changing the air around here,up to now it was only,votes/school boards. every body forgot Chistmas and New Years. Hey have a wonderful New Year you and yours,and for everyone else on this Board I wish the same and may all your wishes come real.
December 20, 2011 08:06:22 Rich   Saturday night, my wife and I sat in front of the fireplace with a glass of wine and watched the snow flurries. We talked about Christmas and the upcoming visit by our daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter. We may not be rich financially and we had some very hard times. But, as we look back, we are truly blessed. Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
December 19, 2011 20:35:43 bertimouse   Masonville resident: call the district office at the High School:607-563-2135.
December 19, 2011 15:10:45 masonville resident   Does anyone know when the next school board meeting is being held?
December 18, 2011 16:40:24 Pam Walker-Town Clerk The house and property you are asking about 15805 State hwy.8 Masonvile NY is owned by Doug Harris 1063 McNear TRL Java VA 24565-7034 He may be able to answer any question you may have.
December 17, 2011 16:41:03 i no the house   15805 st hwy 8 is the house right next to church st
December 16, 2011 19:36:33 crzyflea   Dawn, maybe you can help us out, is that north (sidney side) or south(headed towards deposit?) I'm thinking from your description it is south, perhaps that lovely white house on the flat?
December 16, 2011 18:21:02 bertimouse   Dawn, Forgot to mention that oops we don't know where number 15805 is on rte. 8 but Yes some folks online here would probably personally know. We both don't think that the TOM officials would comment here about that because of maybe legal issues. :)
December 16, 2011 18:14:44 bertimouse   Hi Dawn. The real estate firm is your best bet first. Then go to the neighbors or the County Office in Delhi to figure out which town its in - depends where on route 8 it is - could be Deposit or Sidney. If its in the TOM & you cant get to a TOM board mtg. in person, you can email our Town supervisor; Craig Dumond at or call him at(607)369-4338 for more info. GOOD LUCK with the "needs work" part. Figure at least 25 percent More(these days)than what you planned on! :( Hope this helps & Merry Christmas. :)
December 16, 2011 15:18:24 Dawn Gibson I would like to know about the property at 15805 st hwy 8 .it has been abandoned for quite some time I know and th enote on the door says to call a real estate ..i did but i want to know asap:) better soure would be here with the board. any info?? septic,water source and ancre?? i see the barn in the back.I have eyed this place for years!!i know it needs work which would be 100% long as most of it is in good shape.Thank you so much.and what high school do the kids go to?
December 16, 2011 12:37:46 JOKER   I think everybody was too busy for hunting with all the voting and school boards
December 15, 2011 20:25:42 bertimouse   voter: hey forgiven. Must have been a Freudian-Slip while thinking about SCSD. :) :) :)
December 15, 2011 20:20:26 bertimouse   Oh Yah the TOMs new space Rocks thanks to 1)Good Leadership 2)Good Input from us 3)Good old fashioned Community Spirit to pitch in 4)Brains to know about how costly improvements can raise local taxes. BRAVO, TOM for Pro Active.
December 15, 2011 13:19:50 TX-1   How about it,anybody with a deer?
December 15, 2011 10:46:12 Conservative Always   Great Job to Supervisor DuMond and the TOM Board for the new town hall!!! its a beautiful building and the residents of Masonville should be proud!! the old building felt like we were having the meeting in the highway garage. Its great for the town to have this morale boost and done within budget at low-cost to the tax payer thanks to Mike S. Great Job Supervisor DuMond and the TOM Board!! a lot of good has come to the town thanks to you and keep up the fight in Delhi..the other towns should model themselves after TOM!
December 15, 2011 08:33:13 voter   sorry for the we we
December 15, 2011 08:22:09 voter   Bertimouse, you are all so right! Been here forever and this is the normal thing to happen. Just remember, if we we need to vote again we can.
December 14, 2011 23:05:10 bertimouse   It warms our hearts to see folks so awake & involved now about how our school taxes & the BOE literally tries to rule over(or is that over rule?)the 800 families with attending children district-wide. :) Statistically speaking, this vote was a Great Turnout! For the latest update about the next BOE Meeting you can call the district office at the High School:607-563-2135x4275 for the Supers office. Looks like the free lunches and dinners at the Executive Sessions may be ending soon, but BEWARE. We can say from experience that these folks know very well the game of trickery in order to get what they want. We'll bet $100 that this aint over yet.
December 14, 2011 18:30:40 masonville resident   does anyone know when the next school board meeting will be held? This should be interesting to attend.
December 13, 2011 19:38:29 what?   SCSD Superintendent William Christensen explains during a presentation on the Capital Project that EXCEL funding is not really a grant,what? Not really? According to the Nuts and Bolts of the EXCEL program on State Budget Info; This EXCEL program provides funding in the form of grants for school facility projects.
December 13, 2011 18:32:01 voter   There are people from all 3 communitees for and against everything we vote on and some are our friends and relatives, that is what makes this America and what makes the vote work.
December 13, 2011 17:21:58 what?   Try not to think of it as a 'war' of Sidney Center and Masonville voters against Sidney. There had to be some Sidney voters who don't like Govt. waste either.
