  1. Re-sentencing for the Skeloses not until Oct 24. They were already found guilty and sentenced once before. Silver's re-sentencing date was supposed to be July 13, but apparently hasn't happened yet. For crying out loud, PUT THEM IN JAIL ALREADY!!!
  2. Walking on the wrong side of the road in the dark is never a good idea. Very tragic story.
  3. I would think at this point, we're all indigenous.
  4. Fatal Motorcycle Crash In Horseheads

    I still don't understand how some random guy standing all day by the side of the road with a flag is a "hero". That was a pretty lousy news story.
  5. Ummm, no. This year sucked. An early thaw in early February caused the sap to run for a week and half. But then, our crappy winter kept on rolling for 5 1/2 weeks until finally it warmed enough for the sap to run ALL AT ONCE! Just like the flood gates were opened, it was hard to keep up with the flow. The sap was not as sweet as usual: sap usually requires boiling down to a 40:1 ratio but this year it was a 64:1 ratio - way less syrup out of the same amount of sap. Perhaps it was better in other parts of the state, but around here it sucked. My production was down 20% from past years.

  11. It would appear their target demographic may be depicted in the first photo in this topic.
  12. I swear the only reason I looked at this article was I thought the original poster might have spelled "libtard" wrong in the title. Let's look at the numbers. 88,000 sq ft building less a 2,000 sf community space = 86,000 sf 86,000 sf less 20% or so in other common areas (utility rooms, hallways, stairwells, elevators, etc) = 68800 sf 68800 sf divided by 90 residences = 764 sf residence $20M divided by 90 residences = $222K per 764 sf residence, or $291 per sf Seems like they could have razed the building and put up 90 nice 1800 sf houses for that same amount of money. DAMN! I hope they fixed those bricks too ...
  13. Someone named "anonymous" needs to be held accountable for all this commotion.
  14. Horseheads Police Warns Public Of Phone Scams

    I've been getting a bunch of calls from National Healthcare advertising health plans available in my area including Blue Cross/Blue Shield and others. Caller ID lists calls as coming from a number of States. Last time I got a call, I pressed whatever number to speak to a rep. I got some fellow trying to disguise his accent. So I asked him "Before we get started, where are you calling from?" He gets defensive and asks me where I am calling from. He's clearly a Pakastani by accent, and easily agitated. So I tell him that this is not how it works, because I asked him first where HE was calling from. He gets pissed at me, curses and hangs up. So it is definitely some kind of scam.
  15. Next up, Dean Skelos and his sleazebag son. June 18th retrial date (but they are trying everything they can to get the date changed and trial moved out of state and the key witness against them tossed) Stay tuned ...
