  1. That's how I feel about it too. I guess if there's people living and working right there it'll get used. I would probably enjoy lunch while watching for waterfowl and maybe the occasional eagle. Maybe it's that we've been so long with there not being a significant number of people there day to day it's hard to see it. I don't know, I guess we'll find out.

  3. That's exactly the color they got on that TV episode as well.
  4. The slideshow mentioned there wasn't any funding for bridge demolition. I wonder what demolition would cost vs this project?
  5. I remember there being an episode of Dirty Jobs where Mike went to one of these recycling centers. If I remember correctly, all the paint was mixed and then offered to people who wanted to touch up their homes but couldn't afford the paint. Sure beats having to frog around with kitty litter and hoping it dries enough so the garbagemen will take it.
  6. There is so much potential on that auditorium at the old Watkins Glen High School. They've done so well with the rest of the building already.
  7. This individual has been located and the investigation continues.
  8. Guess what parts of the state he won't be trying to sell this crap in? We're frogs in a pot of water folks, and he's turning up the heat.

  11. Suicide In America

    One person at a time maybe? I don't know, beyond that. Look at that video you shared on Facebook. If that guy, that message got out to more people, who knows? It's a powerful message, and it's drowned out by all the other BS our society indulges in.
  12. Suicide In America

    After the apparent suicide of celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain I've seen several posts on social media apparently shaming others for feeling bad while "ignoring" the average 22 vets that commit suicide everyday. You know why no one says anything about those 22 vets? Because we didn't know. We don't hear about it because of the stigma society attaches to suicide. Like a pregnant unwed mother in the 40's, it's avoided, not talked about like some shameful thing. Put away so we can pretend things are neat and tidy in our little world. We like that, it's easier. Hell, what about the other people, the non-celebrity, non-veteran suicides? According to statistics from 2016, 120 people commit suicide A DAY. And reports indicate that the number has increased since. Why aren't the other 100+ people included in that meme? Why need to prioritize one group of people over another? It's perfectly okay to feel bad when ANYONE commits suicide, regardless of their station in life. EVERY death by suicide is sad. I didn't personally know Bourdain, Robin Williams, or anyone who was just found this morning. For anyone who let's that darkness overtake them, we can still feel sympathy for them; the 14 year old whose been bullied, the soldier fighting demons of war, or some rich guy on tv. Like many Americans, I too have felt the loss of someone I know after they decided to take their own life. Additionally, because of my former profession I've seen the aftermath first hand. It's not easy to understand, it's not easy to see, but it can't be ignored. It needs to be addressed, and it's not something that you can just plug into a meme on social media and move on. Perhaps Bourdain's and other celebrity suicide deaths can bring about discussion on the topic of suicide and mental health in America. Shed that stigma and make people more aware, more open to talk about it today. And maybe, just maybe, lead to a few less self inflicted deaths tomorow.
  13. Mall Farmers Market Opens Today

    There wasn't the "20-30" vendors as was reported somewhere back when this was first announced, 10-12 maybe, but it's early I guess. I was there around 12:45 and there was still one vendor setting up. I intended to stop back after work and when I walked out at 5:00 one table was empty and another vendor was packing up. I had to double check the hours, and confirmed, they are supposed to be 12-6. if you have set hours for an event, the vendors need to arrive early and stay til the event is over.
