April 23, 2010 05:49:45 Grumpy CDR.Keidel@gmail.com I noticed yesterday that the flags were flying correctly in front of the Masonville General Store and Crescent Wrench Cafe. The US Flag Code stipulates that the US flag is always displayed in its place of honor, to the left of all other flags. In the past, I've observed the flag flying to the right of the OPEN flag. As Commander of Disabled Veterans Chapter 200, I notice stuff like that. Grumpy is pleased to see it fly correctly.
April 19, 2010 22:15:05 Grumpy CDR.Keidel@gmail.com Well Tony, it is still April and anything can happen in this month. The morning you left, you should have seen fairly large snowflakes falling. My decks were white, but everything melted by afternoon and the sunshine made it a wonderful day.
April 18, 2010 14:59:23 Tony - CR-20   Hey Grumpy...hope all is well and thanks for putting the board back up. Rich...glad it worked out for you! BTW...It was cold up there this morning when I left!
April 15, 2010 14:48:43 Grumpy CDR.Keidel@gmail.com Rich, Tony, even Mrcoding, you are making me very happy! THIS is the kind of exchange for which I intended this message board. I am pleased it is being used properly and constructively.
April 15, 2010 14:22:57 Rich   Tony - Thank you very much. My topsoil is being delivered so that should keep me busy for awhile.
April 14, 2010 01:11:08 Tony - CR-20   Rich - I use Don Snow Trucking in Harpursville (607) 693-8432. Has the Top Soil, don't know about Mulch.
April 13, 2010 13:11:09 Rich   mrcoding - thanks. I called Osterhout's Landscaping and left several messages but no returned phone call. On that note, I'm still looking for top soil and mulch.
April 09, 2010 09:30:29 mrcoding   Hi Rich...I believe Osterhout's Landscaping on route 28 in Oneonta delivers to Masonville. The number is...607-432-5098
April 09, 2010 09:15:19 Rich   I'm in need of a few yards of top soil and 5 yards of red mulch. Does anyone know of someone who delivers to Masonville?
April 08, 2010 22:41:02 mrcoding   there is a dog that is left out almost all day and night and barks incessently. Who else hears it and does anyone know who owns the dog?
April 08, 2010 07:15:27 George Denys gdenys@citlink.net Other shoe dropping tonight!!
April 08, 2010 07:15:21 Grumpy CDR.Keidel@gmail.com Well, Observer, you didn't have to wait too long! It is damp and drizzly this morning, with thunderstorms expected later toningt!
April 07, 2010 11:43:34 Observer   This beautiful weather we are having has me holding my breath waiting for the other shoe to drop.
April 05, 2010 08:42:28 driver72   I see many cars passing tractor trailer and then i see convoys of car sometimes behind them were no one passes then the last car all the way in the back makes the move to pass when they shouldn't seen many close calls. Why dont these tractor trailer driver pull to the side when they see so many car back up behind them. I mite see 1 in 10 do this but its not enough.
March 29, 2010 00:30:22 RangerDanger.   You have a point, my father is 55. According to what I said before he'd be almost elderly, but I don't think he'll be near there for another 20 years (and definitely won't be acting it)
March 28, 2010 18:58:37 Me   Thursday is the opening day of Trout fishing. Please remember that the water is still VERY cold. Be carefull!! Also keep a keen eye out for our resident forest ranger......he's a bit ticket happy. Nice guy, just a bit gung *CENSORED*!!
March 28, 2010 17:55:18 Rich   To all - Sorry, I typed my last message a bit too fast. Does anyone know the phone number or email address of the guy who sells firewood on Rt. 8 next to the church?
March 28, 2010 13:33:51 Rich   Does any know the phone number or email address of the guy who sells firewood on Rt 8 next to the church.
March 26, 2010 15:42:06 Observer   And PS Ranger 60 years old is not elderly LOL
March 26, 2010 15:24:45 Observer   RangerDanger. While I agree with most of your message there is no way the driver of the tractor trailer could be construed at fault and having been in many tractor trailers it is entirely possible he was not aware of the accident. I am not saying he was not aware I am saying it is a very real possibility. As to what he could have done to prevent the accident? That I do not know. Probably not much actually. I am sure no one started out that day with the intent of having an accident. My daughter was 3 cars back from the car that pulled out to pass. She and others were aware immediately that there was going to be a terrible calamity. And, she recognized her friends auto and knew it was too late to do anything by anyone including the car that pulled out to pass. It was one of those terrible and unfortunate things that happen on our highways.
March 26, 2010 15:07:30 RangerDanger.   I would just like to say that I hope they find the driver of the tractor trailer involved in the incident. I personally drive from Masonville to Delhi four days a week and have passed many slow moving tractor trailers on those roads, only to have them speed up when they see me start to pass them! Has anyone thought of why the tractor trailer didn\'t stop when he saw two cars collide beside him? I drove threw after the accident and there is NO WAY that the driver of the rig didn\'t notice it happen. The elderly womans car was almost completely destroyed and Josh\'s car was half missing. My heart sank driving past there, once I realized that I was witnessing what was the remains of an accident involving a \"friend\" of the family. My condolences go out to both Joshua, his family, and the family of and Mrs. Bush. There is nothing anyone can do to bring her back, but we can all hope that Josh makes it through and faces whatever he has ahead of him.
March 26, 2010 13:26:42 Observer   Glad to see this board back up and running. I am sure that soon there will be a lot more people using it. I maintain the "Official" Masonville website but the "Official" does not have comment capabilities so it is nice to have a site where the residents can make comments and observations.
March 25, 2010 11:52:54 Grumpy CDR.Keidel@gmail.com Gee, I didn't know I couldn't format italic and bold typeface in my previous message! I'll have to talk to my webmaster about that.
March 25, 2010 11:48:29 Grumpy CDR.Keidel@gmail.com <i>My wife drives from Masonville daily to Binghamton. My son drives daily from Masonville to Oneonta and my daughter drives...</i> My wife drives daily from Masonville to <b>everywhere</b>! I always tell her: "Drive carefully out there!" What does that mean? It means to stay alert and aware of what the other drivers are doing! When I taught my sons to drive, I always complemented them on their good work. I also reminded them that it doesn't matter how well they drive when there are others out there who don't! Not only must one drive well, one must also look out for, and expect, others to make mistakes! It only takes a few seconds to takes someone elses life!
March 25, 2010 09:03:13 Observer   My best wishes for a speedy recovery goes out to the young man from Masonville who was involved in the very tragic and needless accident that took place Wednesday near Walton. The woman who was killed in the accident was my daughter's very dear friend and a close friend of my family. My daughter was on her way to work in Delhi when she witnessed her friend being killed. Mrs. Bush died as my daughter stood beside her at the accident site. While it is not my job to lay blame on anyone, we have experts for that, it appears it was another of those tragedys we can chalk up to impatience and inattentativness. Folks please drive more carefully out there. Our highways today are dangerous places for the best of drivers. My wife drives from Masonville daily to Binghamton. My son drives daily from Masonville to Oneonta and my daughter drives from Walton to Delhi and then hundreds of miles around Delaware county every day. I do not want to lose them or anyone else.
March 24, 2010 14:56:18 Grumpy CDR.Keidel@gmail.com There was snow on the ground this morning. It is all gone now and the sun is shining!
March 23, 2010 18:44:43 WSHBOWN   IS THERE ANY SNOW ON THE GROUNG IN MASONVILLE ?
March 23, 2010 13:09:59 Andrew Kenyon Lorenz, La Quinta, CA aklorenz@live.com To any and all citizens of Masonville, N.Y. Do any of you have knowledge of where we might find records of our family history? My great-grandfather, James Monroe Robbins, was born in or around Masonville between approximately 1830-1850. If anyone has knowledge of our family history, please contact me at your convenience. Thank you.
March 22, 2010 07:47:59 Me   Well, We as a country are done. Healthcare will bankrupt us. We are no longer a free people. We are done.
March 19, 2010 22:54:46 Me   Funsucker.....25% is more like it. Blame Albany. Idiots.
March 19, 2010 22:23:38 Me   I didn't miss it at all.
March 18, 2010 21:01:15 wishbone   missed the message board welcome back
March 15, 2010 22:39:28 RangerDanger.   I see we're back in action.
March 11, 2010 18:49:56 Funsucker   Welcome back. How about that school budget huh? What's your guess on the % of increase 4% - 5% who knows. Our district has gone to the dogs:)
March 10, 2010 11:39:28 Grumpy CDR.Keidel@gmail.com The Message Board is functioning again. We had to take it down for a period due to abusers. We will not condone "name calling" and/or personal attacks. Sorry to have to perhaps restrict someone's "Freedom of Expression," but offenders may be indeed be "banned" from this venue.
October 01, 2009 09:03:33 CrzyFlea   Just wanted to drop by and express my deepest condolances to Judy; your mother was a wonderful woman and she will be sorely missed by those who knew and loved her. To the other two families who lost loved ones in the last two weeks, I'm so sorry for your losses.
September 30, 2009 17:36:33 RangerDanger.   I check this every couple days, and I must say this has gotten quite out of hand. Grumpy, perhaps you could speak to your webmaster about having "message approvals" if that is possible?
September 30, 2009 08:16:58 ScruffiesLove   Grumpy, I do apologize to you and the town for this "feud". All i can say is , as far as for me i know better and can understand the inconvenience to you and the people that use the site. I once ran not only a board but a network of chat for many years.. So i know your grief. I can tell you I will hold to what i stated before. I will not engage in any further debates not only on my personal life but not on anyone else for that matter. I never expected to have my issues place on the town board , it was not me who started it , but i am trying to end it. This board is not for that type of behavior. Again ,I apologize for myself. Far as the others intentions go I can not speak for them. I can once again advise my friends and family not to add further comment. As for Mr. Harris part , that is not anything I can control. Also, Grumpy on a new topic, it has been a while since I was involved with servers, boards and chats. but if I do reengage in its activities I would be more then happy to offer you FREE space for the town board through one of my old host. I know many who own server boxes. I will contact a few friends who still have dealing with this and see if i might be able to help you. I might be able to offer you Free hosting through them as a favor to me . This as i am sure you know, saves a-lot of money, you would then be just left with the domain cost. you could transfer the domain in to free DNS " Zoneedit" to handle all DNS directions. If this is something you might be interested in just let me know. I do not know how verse you are in stuff like this but feel free to ask me any questions
September 30, 2009 06:07:17 George Denys gdenys@citlink.net Why not just ban the single offender/instigator?? The rest of us can then continue to enjoy the service you provide in the spirit you have requested.
September 29, 2009 20:09:03 "Grumpy" Ernst Keidel CDR.Keidel@gmail.com You are correct, George! What started out as a good way for the Masonvillains to express themselves, became a re-emergence of the Hatfields and McCoys, no, the Harris and Nichols Feud! And all eyes look to me to do something, as if I were the instigator. Well, there IS something I can do - I can shut down this website and save myself a couple of hundred dollars and a lot of grief. Perhaps that would be a disservice to the ones who read this venue and enjoy it. Perhaps this site did have some positive aspects, such as announcing lost and/or found pets, salient questions or observations of things around town. Anyway, if this feud is continued on my open town message board, I'll have to shut down MasovilleNY.com - the ball is your court!
September 29, 2009 19:24:02 George Denys gdenys@citlink.net Grumpy, This message board is again out of hand in my opinion.
September 29, 2009 19:01:27 ScruffiesLove Aka J Nichols   lol ,Laughing I agree. Masonville is not that small. Ang, Thank you for your opinion/comment, Not everyone is judgmental , without knowing all the facts. BTW On a much lighter note ..the mountain tops are looking spectacular. Fall has arrived!
September 29, 2009 16:23:55 Laughing   Ang WHOA< WHOA One or two people do not constitute the Town of Masonville.
September 29, 2009 15:56:04 Ang colorful316603@yahoo.com I can't believe what I'm seeing/reading here on this local Message Board, what an absolute disgrace everyone is doing for there so-called "Hometown". I personally don't live there, but I sure can tell you this I wouldn't EVER live in such a hell hole of a pit. This family will/has done more in there lifetime to help others than anyone will truly know, why? They don't tell anyone, they don't give themselves as a family that EARNED Credit, But My Family DOES, so Nichol Family keep kicking *CENSORED* :0). As for there Daughter Chelsea, she is a very confused, emotional, and was abused BUT NOT by any of the Nichol's family it was done by her Biological Family, she needs to get help, she needs to understand that she is mixing up her Biological Family who were nothing more than dead beats, drug using, and abusive Parents with the family that took her in, and jumped hoops for almost 2yrs. to give her something she NEVER had/gotten from her Bio. family and that was Unconditional love, a SAFE haven, and a chance to have a Childhood" she NEVER had or was given by her Bio.family!! So unless anyone ACTUALLY knows what there talking about, maybe it's time for your little Masonville to just STOP talking all together and leave the Nichols Family ALONE!! If anything EVERYONE should pull together as a little community and try to help and work TOGETHER as adults,and STOP acting as children, or for that matter STOP upsetting the Nichol's Children, they ARE children, everyone else is supposed to be adults, so show EVERYONE'S children in Masonville, how to correctly help/deal with such non-sense, BUT deal/help in a positive way. I hope your little Community can come together, instead of tearing each other to pieces Good Luck to EVERYONE :0)
September 29, 2009 14:44:53 Laughing   That did not sound right LOL. The driveway is not plugged full due to a heart problem but rather due to a heart problem I cannot shovel the snow when the snow plugs the driveway full> LOL
September 29, 2009 14:43:09 Laughing   I love the fall weather but highly dislike what follows. I can no longer get out there and shovel snow when the driveway is plugged full due to a heart problem. I have attempted to have several people clear the drive for me on a regular basis but none of them ever last long. So, my dear wife usually has to shovel at least a path to get her car out and go to work. Maybe this winter we will be lucky and get no snow. Ya Think?
September 29, 2009 13:11:23 steammill   I agree i think this needs to come to an end and people need to stop being puerile, and take matters into their own hands.Instead of promulgating somebody\'s personal life. This is how rumors start people so knock off the middle school drama.
September 29, 2009 12:53:26 J Nichols   I am only going to make one post and one post only. I refuse to respond to any more stupidity ( that's just my opinion a tthe moment as to what this is.) This forum is not the place for my personal stuff, Doug Harris personal stuff or anyone's personal stuff . However i feel a need to address this at-least for my children, who at the moment feel that we are being slandered. #1 I was made aware of this activity by my son. Children should not have to read on a town forum horrible untrue things about their family or personal things about their family. The town should serve as an example. And YES children do use this forum. Family issues or even non family issues that effect peoples lives should not be placed on here. #2 To correct everyone my daughter (and this is the truth!) She made her choice to move out on her own she was NEVER at any point asked to leave or " tossed out " She left on her own ,even after she was begged by her friends and advised by her family not too. She was loved and cared for in any way a parent can love and care for a child . For what ever reason the rumors and untrue stories of how it happened is apparently going around, however for those of us who were in the home at the time, Friends, family, HER friends and friends of the other children, they can all witness to the truth, She felt at the age of 18 1/2 , my rules at home were unfair even tho still in high-school. She felt she didn't have to follow them any longer, She was your more then typical teenager who came from a abusive home that WE adopted. She was adopted out of love and was cared for properly. Just because a child is 18 doesn't give them the right to do what ever they want . Like any parent or decent parent you voice your concerns and your children may not always agree or feel their is a need for them. This was the case. She was not abused. The rest of the children in the home are becoming greatly upset over this and it really isn't fair to them! I should not even have to be coming on here doing this. I have no need to defend myself. However i will if it will make my children more comfortable. The other children in the home are being effect about this false accusation of the abuse of their sister. I don't care who tells me how i should feel. I can tell you how i do feel. Thats MY daughter, i love,her worry about her,and want to make clear she is welcome home at any time. We are here if she needs us, and always will be!! however there will always be rules in my home. The people that took her in happen to be her boyfriends parents. The boyfriend happens to be one of those things we were in disagreement about,. Enough of that topic i have already spoken about it way more then i should of ever had too, #3 Doug Harris is also not telling the 100% truth. I have no reason to lie, I am behind on payments of a mortgage. I am not a tenant. He did not rent the home to me. (I am not however calling him a liar, he sees the land contract one way i see it another) I have tried to speak with him ( again it is just not in the manor he wants or when he wants,. We do have a family to still raise. and we apparently have a difference of option how to discuss adult things.) He resorts to things like this and other outlandish ways i feel is not appropriate. We have fell on hard times and had un-expect events happen. My husband is currently self employed and doing his best to come up with work to support us. Do you all really think Doug Harris comments about us will help my husband obtain work.? Isn't that what is going to make us able to pay him his money? Which is one of his complaints and happens to be the only one that holds any sort of truth .Does that make any sence? Why would you look to slander the people that you need to pay you and warn people not to do business with them?. I will let you answer those questions. It is not for me to judge, not my motive. We maintain the property and the others bills pertaining to the home. Again, i have no need or feel I should have to defend myself. We have done nothing wrong as a family. other then income lose , If that is a crime , then sorry I was unaware. Most of the nation must be committing the same crime. If Mr Harris wants us out then ask your selves WHY this, and not the legal way??? foreclose? This way creates what? To me ,all i see is people getting angry and upset. I don't even want to be put in a position of libel. I am not out to harm anyone or discredit them. I have nothing Bad or Good to say about Doug Harris. #4 Last i can tell you everything other then behind on some payments none of the rest is true. I wish i had a reason for the false statements he has made .but i don't and i rather not assume. However, i guess you will on your own form your opinions. #5 I am Mrs. Nichols have been for 18 years . My husband and i have been togehter since i was in high school and we both graduated locally , I am a mother of 4 and 1 step child and a proud mother i love all 5 children. #6 To answer someone else question directed to Doug Harris. I am a local. My husband was born an raised here.. and i was raised here most of my life. We left the area for several years due to my husbands work transferring him out of state. when that job came to a sudden end, We moved back home to be closer to the majority of our family and our old friends whom we visited EVERY year. My children started their schooling right in the Sidney school district, that they have now returned too The question might be is Doug Harris a local? Summary: This was all unnecessary i made my statements and wish do not state anymore I will not respond to anything left on the forum cause it will only lead into a he said, she said thing and that in the end will hurt my children more then anyone else involved in this . Doug you have changed your E-mail i have tried to contact you via your old e-mail address however it keeps coming back un-found i been trying to contact you since Sept 3rd..( i see on here you have a new one however i will not e-mail to it because you have not personality given it to me and without your permission i will not do so.) If you wish to contact me you know how my email has not changed,. BUT I will not respond to you here as this is NOT the place for your private stuff and mine and my families. It is also unfair to the rest of the people in this town. I want to thank those who have felt the need to defend us. However i would even more appreciate if you no longer add to this topic. My Family and friends are very important to us. I would rather you all say nothing at all to avoid undue stress, and spare these people of the town the drama and rumors and gossip. but again thank you for saying the things you have . I apologies that this was even brought to the towns forum. I am also requesting that the webmaster remove this and everything pertaining to this topic off the site. I wish everyone here the best.
September 29, 2009 12:53:14 Anonymous   Chelsea left a situation that she did not want to be in. Bottom line. Knock it off. And it was not Matt or Sean that said this.
September 29, 2009 09:14:22 Laughing   This discussion about who is what and who is not should be in an attorny's office or court of law not on a public message board. Probably is time for the very generous host of this BBS to bring it all to a halt before more damage is done to these families.
September 29, 2009 07:45:53 christopher nichols   ok i vote that which ever it is Shawn or Matt who ever needs to stop spreading *CENSORED* ok Chelsea moved out that\'s what happened u think its funny to exploit someones life on the internet cause its really not my family arent bad people if u belive this stuff then go ahead but im just letting u know we really arent the kind of people that everyone is saying we are on here
September 28, 2009 23:19:00 RangerDanger.   I vote that we drop the subject.
September 28, 2009 23:09:09 State.Eight.   I believe the \"lovely daughter\" you speak of was thrown out of the house by her parents recently. And was treated HORRIBLY by them. She\'s lucky that she has another place to stay.

September 28, 2009 20:45:43 Tom Barton tbarton@hvc.rr.com Bertimouse - Congrats on thinking about your HAM License. HAMs provide a valuable community service when other means of communication are limited or non-existent. If you\'d like to see how a proper HAM NET works, come out and support International Rally New York. As you know, we hoped to be in Masonville, but that did not come to be. We are racing in Sullivan County the end of October, instead. My son and I just put up the repeater for the event. Excellent coverage from a portable repeater that could be put up anywhere for emergency comms. If you\'d like to come out and help, and learn about HAM radio, feel free to contact me or Rich - N2ZXK. Also - you sandbaggers - Other volunteers are NEEDED..... with or with out HAM licenses.... Tom, driver of Mazda 323 - WB2QPN - tbarton@hvc.rr.com
September 28, 2009 19:42:34 Cupcake   well obviously someone has no life considering they like to spill someone\'s personal life out to everyone else which half of it i\'m sure isn\'t true.
September 28, 2009 00:13:25 bertimouse   Well, RangerDanger you just gotta be Here in Masonville. Grumpy is not what you thought he was,was he Eh&LOL? WELCOME TO PLANET MASONVILLE!
September 27, 2009 21:20:05 RangerDanger.   Got a chance to meet Grumpy today, I must say he's not as Grumpy as he tells us. =P
September 26, 2009 02:29:49 bertimouse   Dear Doug Harris:Please Calm Down&Get Yourself a Good Local Lawyer;sounds to us that if you'd done that in the first place you wouldn't be in this pickle now? -What do you want us folks in MV to do?Run a POSSE & A VIGILANTE group over to your place?You didn't mention what State/County these Lizards Came From:that matters to us&sometimes makes a legal difference. If You're Doing Business with ANYONE outside of Delaware County? -GET A GOOD DELAWARE COUNY LAWYER. -Sounds like you have"Tenants From Hell".We'll Pray for you Doug. Thank You for the warning us all about JENNIFER & SCOTT NICHOLS. Our Town Website should have a "Wall Of Shame" section of the bulletin board that posts/alerts us all to things LIKE THIS but,who decides what goes on or not?We would hate to add yet another task for our webmaster! :;)
September 25, 2009 22:33:57 bertimouse   We(No,I)am getting back into getting my Ham Radio license because my older brother in Colorado INSISTS I do this for the sake of my family&community.He's in the VFD there&after(recalling our 2006 Flood)he strongly recommended to me that Masonville "really ought to have an Emergency Ham Operator Program"like they do.Do we?-Am going to "QRZ.com"to learn more about how to get my license.Anyone else interested? Maybe we could start up a local Ham club?Does anyone else care about this type of Fun?
September 25, 2009 13:55:56 Doug Harris catsamore@yahoo.com Thanks for your concern, Laughing. For something to be libelous, it has to be untrue. Everything I said is _provably_ true.
September 25, 2009 11:53:12 Laughing   Doug while our sympathies might run in your direction you are treading very close to libel. I suggest a good attorney.
September 25, 2009 11:18:23 "Grumpy" Ernst Keidel CDR.Keidel@gmail.com My condolences to our own Judge Judy on the loss of her mother! Polly Bogardus passed away early Thursday morning. She is predeceased by her husband Hank, who was my first friend on Steam Mill Road when I moved here ten years ago.
September 24, 2009 21:35:20 Doug Harris catsamore@yahoo.com Warning: To anyone who might consider engaging Jennifer or Scott Nichols in _any_ way involving money or goods for services they _might_ render, be aware that this couple, individually and jointly, are thieves, liars and deadbeats. They are _supposed_ to be buying a house from us (at the corner of Rt 8 and Church Street), and they have a contract stating they will regularly pay us, every month, a previously-agreed-upon sum of nearly $1000 per month. As of this writing, in the year since they entered into that contract, they've made one -- O-N-E -- payment in full on time. And right now, as I write this, it's been FIVE MONTHS -- F-I-V-E M-O-N-T-H-S !!! -- since they paid us one thin American dime. It would be one thing if they made _some_ effort to pay, or even made _even a POOR excuse_ for not doing so. They do neither. Worse, they refuse to communicate with us -- unless we physically show up at 'their' door and we are fortunate enough to find them in. (If they aren't out earning money to pay their bills, including what they owe us, what ARE they doing??) One thing they're NOT doing is being any more honest with other people than they are with us. I just happened to learn a few days ago that Jenn Nichols (who may or maybe isn't 'Mrs' Nichols) has stolen money owed by her to a businessman for whom she was, if you'll forgive the term, 'working'. (That despite the fact that she's so 'disabled' that she collects public money and is supposedly -- according to her -- not allowed to take a job.) -- The long and the short of it is, STEER CLEAR OF THESE _DEADBEAT_ Lay-abouts. They are bad news.
September 21, 2009 22:02:44 RangerDanger.   Bah, I don't use rest stops. If I have to go bad enough to need to stop I go for a walk in the woods..
September 21, 2009 13:42:20 "Grumpy" Ernst Keidel CDR.Keidel@gmail.com No rest for the chubby! If you, as am I, are a corpulent male, don't count on relief at the Route 88 westbound Worcester rest stop. The urinals there have modesty panels which are too narrow for hefty males, who will not be able to reach actual urinal! You will have to use the handicapped stall all the way to the rear!
September 19, 2009 21:04:27 Laughing   $100 for a hunting license!!!!???? HUH? Does that include a porter to carry your guns? Nothing out there that I want to shoot enough to pay that much! How much is it for us old geezers?
September 19, 2009 18:20:13 RangerDanger.   Anyone else on here a little bothered by how its almost 100 dollars for a hunting license now? I'm not sure if I'll be able to go this year, with me having a 1200 dollar car insurance bill. >=(
September 19, 2009 01:15:16 bertimouse   Hi Laughing. We'd love to entertain you but we're going camping again. We'll speak again sometime this winter. :) Have a Great Fall to All that are Blessed who Live Here in Masonville, blessed because you can Slowly Watch the Seasons Change rather than racing up here & killing everyone you pass on the road with your big loads&ATVS.
September 18, 2009 14:32:43 Laughing   Come on folks. This board has been dead. Lets get a discussion going.
September 15, 2009 21:04:53 "Grumpy" Ernst Keidel CDR.Keidel@gmail.com Laughing! You can ask George DeNys directly; his name has an email hotlink on the home page. His phone is listed there aa well.
September 15, 2009 16:30:29 Laughing   CDR.Keidel - Do you know whether Masonville ever found someone to maintain their site? I know a time ago Mr.Deny was asking on here for someone who was willing to do that.
September 15, 2009 15:53:53 "Grumpy" Ernst Keidel CDR.Keidel@gmail.com Well, Laughing, this site is run and maintained by Bearpaws Webworks, as shown at the bottom of the home page. I just pay for it and tell them what to display.
September 15, 2009 13:51:26 laughing   CDR. Ernst Keidel - I do not know who maintains your web site but their censoring bot is set pretty sensitive isn't it? <grin>
September 15, 2009 12:24:59 "Grumpy" Ernst Keidel CDR.Keidel@gmail.com E-MAILING AGAIN! My computer wiz son Armin set me up with a G-Mail account and I can communicate again. I cannot access my defunct Hotmail account and don't have access to my address book stored there. I will attempt to contact as many of the folks on my address list I can remember and tell them of this scam.
September 15, 2009 11:50:40 Laughing   I have no idea what the SP might have set up a road block on Rte. 8 for but it sounds reasonable that if they were looking for a suspect they would be more interested in your windshield sticker. After all capturing a bad guy would cost money for the state while a bad sticker makes money for the state. And lets be reasonable. A bad inspection sticker is right up there with kidnapping, murder and *CENSORED*. In fact I place it right up there with my wife's burned out licence plate light for which she got a ticket on Rte. 8. I say throw the book at her!!
September 15, 2009 11:41:28 Tony - CR-20   Thank god your ok Grumpy! I received that email at 11:30 last night on my blackberry and was concerned since it was so well formatted and even had your Grumpy signature! I was talking on the Ham Radio to friends and explained the email to them and they informed me that the news ran a report a few days ago about the hoax. I missed that report but thank god they told me about it. I looked so real! Anyway...glad your home in good ol Masonville New York!
September 15, 2009 10:45:48 Laughing   You are a victim of an old web scam. I have not seen that one around since my days with AOL as a tech. I doubt hotmail will be able to do much. Your solution is to change your e-mail name and password. Don't forget all, changing your passwords on a monthly basis is a real necessity in this day and age. Beware of scams when you are asked for personal information or when you have been informed that you have won money, lotteries, or such and remember - you probably do NOT have a long lost reletive in Africa who wants to send you money. Beware of scams involving exchange of moneies in auctions and Crieg's List. NEVER send money via Western Union and do not accept cashiers checks. I have a cashiers check from Scottrade in a frame from a person in Florida who wanted to buy a microscope I was selling on E-Bay. The check, he says, was mistakenly made out for $3000.00 rather than $300 and would I please send him the balance after taking $400. $300 for the scope and $100 for my troubles. Yea right!! LOL
September 15, 2009 08:47:35 "Grumpy" Ernst Keidel   I AM NOT IN MALAYSIA! It appears that my email account has been hacked and is sending messages to people in my address book saying that I am stuck in Malaysia and to send money quickly! I am trying to resolve this problem with Hotmail.com and will try to get a different functional email set-up. Meanwhile, DON'T SEND ANY MONEY TO MALAYSIA and don't get mad at me, please!
September 14, 2009 20:54:35 Grumpy Ernst Keidel CDR_Keidel@hotmail.com Does anybody know what the State Troopers were looking for with their road block on Route 8 today? Bad guys? They questioned the strange appearance of my inspection sticker. I had my windshield replaced about two months ago, needing the stickers to be transferred to the new glass. Really makes them look tampered with.
September 13, 2009 21:39:59 Tom   Thank you Craig, for the address for the court.
September 13, 2009 00:59:27 Steve K   Looks like really close and nice community here. Good job Grumpy for keeping this forum up
September 11, 2009 07:04:02 Craig DuMond   Masonville Town Court....PO Box 63 Masonville NY 13804
September 09, 2009 23:30:22 RangerDanger.   I'm afraid that I don't remember the address from when I got my ticket (loud muffler). I'm sure one of the other people on here will be able to help you though, it should be posted up tomorrow or the next day. I shouldn't even have gotten that one.. the muffler is louder now that it is fixed than it ever was before. AND he pulled me over in front of a church. Made me feel like a sinner for not having an "adequate" muffler..
September 09, 2009 23:12:03 Tom   Ranger Danger Can i have the address of the court house so i can mail in my ticket . The address on the ticket is not clear . Thanks
September 09, 2009 21:14:20 RangerDanger.   I found a set of keys on Beals Pond road. There is two small matching keys and two larger keys. The larger keys have rubber grip things around the end. I figured they probably go to something important so I decided to post on here about them. Let me know if they are yours! It would be far easier to come pick them up, or meet me somewhere in town to get them than to cut the locks and replace them. Being able to name the color of the two larger keys would be a plus.
September 09, 2009 19:40:33 Funsucker   Thank you Laughing
September 09, 2009 18:42:16 Laughing   P.S. Funsucker go to radioreference.com they have thousands of frequencies of every imaginable agency.
September 09, 2009 18:39:50 Laughing   Funsucker I assume you are referring to Fire, emt etc? If so you will need 46.06 and SP is 155.655 dispatch. and 155.595. There is no special frequencies for the places your named they use Delaware county for fire and ems and sheriff dispatch and Sidney and Cortland for SP dispatch. There are frequencies for Highway Depts etc but they are business band and you probably could get them from highway department. Plus there are many other frequencies used by the SP. Also SP is a "duplex" system.
September 09, 2009 15:17:57 funsucker   Does anyone know where I would get numbers for my scanner for Masonville, Sidney Center, Trout Creek Walton area?
September 09, 2009 13:08:16 Grumpy Ernst Keidel CDR_Keidel@hotmail.com I hope you are all enjoying today: 09/09/09! We won't have another day like this, date wise, until the tenth of October, next year.
September 08, 2009 20:05:28 joey   I wood like to say good luck to all the little kids and big ones too. i hope you all have a happy and safe day at school to bad we will not be seeing any little ones at the old masonville school :*(
September 08, 2009 13:37:48 Mike Spaccaforno   Grumpy, Thank you for honoring my request, by adding my contact info on the home page.

September 04, 2009 16:44:28 Laughing   I have arrived at a scientific conclusion. It is a fact that the cause of the leaves turning in the fall is the passing of school busses.
August 31, 2009 16:45:29 George Denys   The trucks are parked up top out of sight.
August 29, 2009 09:55:40 Happy tax payer   Where did the army trucks go at the highway department ????? I would love to have purchased one if possible. I think it's great if the town can save money with surplus equipment!!!
August 28, 2009 03:16:09 Maria Wolcott   Grumpy - Sorry that it's taken so long for me to reply. We were on vacation in Maine doing some boating and fishing on Great Moose Lake. The weather was great and the fish were biting like crazy. It's beautiful country up there. You provided a good idea and I will use this forum to post my needs in the future. I asked around and was able to find someone to deliver firewood and plow my driveway this winter. So, I'm good for now. I'm looking forward to the fall as it's my favorite time of year. I love the crisp cool mornings, the changing foliage, baking apple pies and football.
August 27, 2009 23:03:15 Grumpy Ernst Keidel CDR_Keidel@hotmail.com Alas, it is a shame that I cannot clone myself and be in two places at once! The September meeting will be one of the very few I have missed in many a year! I have a prior meeting in Binghamton at about the same time on 9 September. I trust that our Pam wil forward me the meeting minutes in a timely fashion!
