  1. Path For Chemung County?

    Thanks for the summary of Baldwin’s zoning laws. For as many things as we can ask the County to improve economically – they can’t (and shouldn’t) be dictating town decisions. It is ultimately up to those municipalities to allow whatever development they feel is in their best interest. If they are zoned agricultural/residential, it's not the county's fault Simmons Rockwell isn't building there. And it is usually not easy to effect change from “the way it’s always been” in a small town. When we see heated debates over bringing a Dollar General or DandyMart to a town, we can imagine the fight a big retail project would inspire. And as a Big Flats resident in the 90's, I can tell you the debate over Walmart/Sam's Club/Tops was bitter (and played out before social media, so it would probably be 100x worse today!) Don’t even get me started with Casella. Aside from importing trash and rapidly taking up space that will (as KR noted) eventually run out – there is reason to believe they have disregarded and covered up the desecration of graves on that site from Indians and the Revolutionary War.
  2. Path For Chemung County?

    I would like to know the history and details on how town and municipal zoning laws have shaped growth in the county. There was significant contention (to the level of public hostility) among the citizens and within the town board of Big Flats leading up to Consumer Square's development. The areas of County Rte 64 now crowded with retail had been zoned as residential, agricultural and industrial. The county did not have the authority to just invite retail development without a lot of input and compromise from the town and landowners. Hills and GCP were obviously already zoned retail by the local government, but I have never heard the about what types of zoning/ordinances the eastern towns have in place.
  3. Path For Chemung County?

    I agree with becoming a destination. And toward that end, I hope this new county government will work toward simply getting out of the way of business owners (and prospective businesses)…..rather than the past administrations that “invested” taxpayers’ money hand over fist to fund their pet projects. No attraction, service or other business that will honestly draw consumers to the area should need someone to build their venue and pay their utilities. If the profits their consumers provide don’t cover operating expenses, then it is not truly bringing revenue.
  4. Manifest - NBC

    I hadn't watched any of New Amsterdam yet, but started from the pilot until you two mentioned it here. I just finished the third episode and am leaning toward agreeing with Karen more than Chris on it. (**UPDATE: Watched three more and I am wondering if they will ever make it through an episode without injecting a heaping on the SJW crap.)
  5. Manifest - NBC

    I came close to giving up on it a few episodes ago....but stuck with and am liking the turn toward the conspiracy/sci-fi themes. I think Fox Mulder would approve.
  6. Lansing Man Arrested For Animal Cruelty

    That's just depraved. As angry and upset I get from people neglecting farm animals or too may 'rescued' strays....this is a whole different magnitude of evil.
  7. Edmeston? Had to google that.
  8. God Friended Me

    The trailers gave left me with a Schrodinger-like ambivalence...it looked like something I could love or not care for at all. Until I watched, remained in both states. So I did see the first episode. It seems like CBS didn’t have enough faith in the concept to call in their best writers or actors. To me, it felt more like an after school special than a primetime show. I don’t think Schrodinger’s cat is going to make it for me.

  10. I believe they can only be unlocked from the app or by the company after they authorize your access (and payment method)....and the rider is charged for as long as they leave it unlocked. I suppose they can just be carried away, but would be unusable unless the thief was inclined to remove that lock - which basically entails re-building the dang thing.
  11. Manifest - NBC

    From the previews building up to it, this looked like an intriguing premise. The first episode didn't disappoint. It had shades of the original X-Files and I couldn't wait for the nest episode. Meh. A little too much of the love-triangles and relationship struggles for me. I'll give it one more episode to get back on track and focus on whatever mysterious forces are at work. If that doesn't become the main plot by next week - I'm done.
  12. West Elmira Police Seeking Pick Up Truck

    I agree that it sounds like an honest mistake. Context matters. "As a result of the location where the tools and ladder had been placed in regards to the roadway" That's a little different than the original report that the items were taken "from a yard area"
  13. Sample This BBQ

    Thank you Ann...that explains it some. Still not clear on why no indictment would be out yet after charges with three different payee victims being ripped off (supplier, Adecco and staff). Hopefully Texas has an active warrant and will extradite the schiester so we aren't stuck paying for his prison time (and then get him back on our streets). I'm not sure what kind of "markup" fees Adecco charges but if they were sending temps that get $12/hr and even billing Sample double ($24/hr)....that $99k amounts to over 4000 hours. Seems like they should have stopped sending staff before that. I'm no fan of Adecco, but I'd have to assume they did pay their temps and probably won't ever see that money.
  14. Sample This BBQ

    Wow!! How did Addecco let them rack up $99,000 in arrears? And why is the judge adjourning this for another two moths???
