  1. I wonder how they balanced this effort against the huge Trooper presence assembled today in Watkins & Montour to send the Curveball crowd down the road when many may have been partying all night?
  2. "Curveball" Music Festival Cancelled

    I don't doubt in a crowd that size there were many many fans that were understanding and wanted to help more than hinder the local efforts. And, I'm not trying to throw them all into the same category. As I said, they were quick to criticize the whiners. But it was pretty sad to see that (as is too common these days on social media), the "me me me" jerks were the ones dominating the Phish page when I looked at it :-(
  3. "Curveball" Music Festival Cancelled

    No Kidding!! Me me me!! "The town should send fire trucks to bring us water". "I'mma sue someone". My personal favorite: "we should blow up the Health Department" But, if you look at the statement above from the band themselves, they could have shaped the conversation and inspired better reactions from fans. Their message could have been a little less 'all about us'. Instead of just speaking about only how heartbroken they are for their beloved fans and their beloved crew....it seems like they could have acknowledged the locals and pretended to show some concern/sympathy for their host community. I can at least say....other fans weren't shy to call out the ones being selfish centered and remind them that there are community members in the region suffering way more than missing a festival, and the community has more important issues to spend resources on right now than their party.
  4. I would think a third option would be to donate it to a federally recognized American Indian tribe to use in their sacred ceremonies. I guess "two" is as far as hiz highness can count
  5. Wow. Am I understanding correctly that the employee would have had to leave the DD store to go to Walmart.....buy the cards, then return to engage in a second phone call to report the card numbers to the thief? All without mentioning this important assignment from the CEO to any co-workers, shift leader or managers? It really was a stroke of luck for this impersonator to randomly find just the right employee gullible enough to fall for all that.
  6. Robbie Nichols Reveals New Hockey Team Name And Logo

    As long as the county is done "investing" tax money into it, I'm happy with however any independent private businessman want to spend his own money and market his product!
  7. Bicyclist Struck By Car In Elmira

    It certainly is annoying that whenever tax money is spent on a "share the road campaign".....the messages all seemed to be aimed at motorists and rarely give public reminders to cyclists of the rules they are required to follow. And often seeing their violations being performed right in front of LEO, without consequence, makes me a little angry. Against traffic, helmet-less, on the sidewalk, against traffic signals....have even seen a baby being towed in a stroller while they break other traffic laws. It really is a wonder it collisions aren't more frequent....and wonder why rules for them are so rarely enforced.

  9. Improving The City Of Elmira Must be Our Community's Top Priority

    The towns and villages north and further removed from the interstate have a lot of dilapidated infrastructure as well. Patches and band-aids are them norm up this way. When we finally got "new" repairs, it's practically a local tourist attraction. And that's usually after something has flooded so bad it's actually washed away. That's why I get the impression that the those investments seem to focus on the density of population and commerce.
  10. Improving The City Of Elmira Must be Our Community's Top Priority

    That's certainly true, although I think the focus there is likely a natural result of higher concentration of population/commerce - which is pretty much a direct result of higher traffic flow and proximity to I-86 (and to a lesser degree, Rt 14). Personally, I've often wondered why there isn't more than a porn shop and Vulcraft east of the Elmira exits. I guess I assumed the voters in those towns (Ashland, Lowman, Chemung, etc) must have supported zoning laws that excluded much else than residential/farming....while Horseheads/Big Flats rarely turn down a retail/commercial proposition. **Post Script: I've never thought the western towns growing retail at the expense of industry/manufacturing was a good idea. We need strong, long term good paying job opportunities with benefits. Relying on Schweizer's military boost as the primary industry was a short-lived gamble. And it was a good move for Chemung to welcome Vulcraft for that reason. However, a strong economy needs housing/retail to go along with those jobs. Otherwise, you have people working at Vulcraft, who live and shop in Horseheads/Big Flats.
  11. Improving The City Of Elmira Must be Our Community's Top Priority

    From the op-ed by Pucci: "The Chemung County Executive’s $166,273 salary is higher than that received by 41 of the nation’s 50 governors." There cannot be any reasonable excuse for that.
  12. Chemung County Political Field Worksheet

    Somehow I can't ever look at that initialism without my brain trying to say "Benevolent Order of Elks"
  13. Equally (or more) relevant questions might be: Who can posses it? Where can they posses it? What quantity can you posses? I'd think there would need to be some measurement that would distinguish between personal and quantities that indicate production/resale (where the taxes and regulations kick in). It's a plant that people can pretty easily grow/produce their own supply - whether for medicinal or recreational purposes. Would it be illegal to own a plant to produce your own (thus avoiding taxable transactions)? If you can have a plant...can you grow it in your yard, at your own risk for theft? Or would they need to be secured indoors?
  14. Maybe everyone can celebrate by portraying insulting stereotypes of the culture being recognized. Nah.......that could never happen.
  15. OK...WETMs facebook posted an "update" to their linked story: However...the my twin tiers headline still reads: "15-year-old killed following hit and run" You'd think they'd correct that.
