  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.

  10. Chemung Man Charged With Animal Cruelty

    I agree with you Hal except the sentence should be PER horse. These animal cruelty cases have got to stop ...
  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 ...
  16. Meet the Candidate

    Mike Krusen named Sullivan his Deputy Supervisor running mate back in January. I have to say, for a moment there and the way it was presented, I thought ol' Adam may have thrown his hat into the ring.
  17. He's been found guilty now twice. Throw his ass in jail already! If they let him sit out jail time while waiting for appeal, we have serious problems in our legal system here in NYS.
  18. On the bright side, it looks like they recovered the entire cast of the muppets. Maybe there'll be another movie ...
  19. Since it sounds like he didn't even have to clean up his own mess, I would suggest the fine be on the high side, plus require a year's worth of community service cleaning up, you guessed it, other peoples' messes along the Chemung River.
  20. Well, except for law-abiding citizens. We'll just throw your ass in jail ...
  21. Town Of Chemung Lays Off Entire Highway Department

    I agree that there's more to this story than we are hearing. All I'm saying is that Krusen comes off looking pretty bad by accusing the Town of Chemung admin as being "incompetent" and threatening an audit. This is the same game he and Santulli have played with the City of Elmira. You simply cannot deny that all municipalities in the county were hurt to some degree when the county changed the sales tax distribution scheme a few years back. That was a huge loss for the smaller towns, all at the expense of making the county appear to look good, and all of our small towns continue to struggle with the loss of those funds. I have to say that Richter was pretty mild in his comments on the situation to the press. He didn't seem point fingers or place any blame. On the other hand, Krusen chose to make a personal attack on that town's leadership.
  22. Town Of Chemung Lays Off Entire Highway Department

    From today's Star Gazette: Someone needs to tell Mike Krusen that it is pretty stupid to come across as a dick in an election year. Perhaps the voters will tell him soon ...
  23. The facebook post was on May 4, 2017. Its text is included in the libel suit which can be seen in the Star Gazette's archives for June 20, 2017, updated on June 21, 2017
  24. So Krusen alleged that Moss bullied the employees at the First Arena Bar and the video evidence clearly shows this is not the case. That's one lie for you Mr. Krusen. Let's keep count, shall we?
  25. She does have a certain mischievous look about her, doesn't she?
