This is what happens when you partner up with the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. It is akin to being partners with a criminal mob. You get something but there are strings attached. Remember the movie the God Father? Well the government has called in its favor. We will now have to pay the piper. Thanks Mr Spano. View Comment
You want to be beholding to the FEDERAL government, then take the money. . That is what got us in trouble in the first place under Spano, wasn't it? The federal government is like the mob, you owe them and down the road , you know they will collect. View Comment
@linda.g.simpson.5:, Just where to all these naive people come from? Do you see what is happening in the world or are you too busy watching "dancing with the Stars" or "ET Tonight" ? We are in a war, just in case you haven't read the papers or watched the "news". Nice guys finish last, or in some cases DEAD !! We should use any means necessary to stop these radical Muslim terrorists. Let me tell you they couldn't give a rats tuches about blowing you up or cutting you to pieces. View Comment
SugarMag55:, you certainly are very naive aren't you. When they think they are going to die, they do tell you things. Maybe some are not true but maybe some are. You will never know if they don't say anything, will you? View Comment
The question was worded that way to get the needed response that the writer wanted. It is a simple as that!!! looks like even the Daily Voice is now slanted to the left, but why should that surprise anyone?
The colleges that turn out these numscull "reporters" are to blame. Journalism school is a joke. What ever happened to the 5 W's? Just look at their writing skills. Thank god for spell check or you would not be able to understand much of what they write. View Comment
Obviously lynn.somerstein:, he wasn't charged with driving under the influence. For your information people that smoke maryjane usually aren't the ones speeding. That had been my experience when I was a police officer back in the day. . View Comment
I just wonder with the people writing negative things here, how many have broken the law and have NOT been caught. He who is with out sin shall cast the first stone. That sound a familiar? View Comment
The answer to your post "I wonder what the fine would have been if this had been a first offense by a young adult in our community. Would he/she been given a mere slap on the hand or made an example of ?" is YES. Was he charged with driving while under the influence? No. Did he get special treatment because he was a legislator, I don't think so. There are people in a Albany, such as Sheldon Silver, that have done things that are 100 times worse, and HE still has not only his job but still remains the speaker. So if you want to vent, how about going after the CORRUPTION in Albany. View Comment
This is really a great thing. Our country is so far behind the rest of the world when it comes to graduating engineers. I do hope it spurs on the growth of engineers. There should be NO reason that we have to "import" engineers. We have plenty of bright young people living in this country already.
There is a major problem with our education system. When we rank 18th overall and 27th in engineering , there has to be a change made. We also spend the most money on education, so it doesn't seem to be the problem, does it?
So I tip my hat to 10th annual Lower Hudson Valley Engineering EXPO for their inspiring work. I do hope it does spur some interest in engineering. View Comment
I like this one "If something doesn’t look right, they are encouraged to give us a call and we will check them out to the best of our ability.” . Really. Folks, the police can't be everywhere. You want to be safe, do something about it yourself. You and only you are the first line of defense. You are the "first responder" in this case. View Comment
The issuance of speeding tickets is for REVENUE only. I doubt that the stats prove that "speeding" actually creates more accidents than any other form of STUPIDLY". It has been proven that the change of speed limits along a road way causes them. The only thing that speed does, is it increase the severity of any resulting accident. It is basically a law of physics . So when they are saying giving out these speeding tickets are saving lives, don't believe it.
What we need is stricter driving tests. The old joke used to be "they are giving drivers licenses away at Sears". The way I have seen some people driving, I think that it might be true only Walmart is now the place to go. View Comment
@CtlndMnr:, Just what our town does not need is to be in the " store" business. You see what happens when government gets involved with operating a business. Prime examples, the US Postal Service and Amtrak. Can you name one "business" that the government has run that has actually operated in the black? I think not. View Comment
The term " medical Marijuana" is a hoax! Have you seen the abuse of the term in California? Got a hang nail, medical Marijuana. Got a headache, medical Marijuana. The abuses are rampant. The long term use of marijuana is not good for your overall health. Have any doubt about it, ask some of your friends that smoke it. View Comment
This is what you get when you take money from the Federal government. They now become your partners with a lot of clout. HB10589 is right, Rob Astorino should be thanked for standing up to these bullies!!! View Comment
Just what we need here in New York state, more taxes. New York State ranks 50th in a state to do business in. So now the tax payer is going to subsidize someones wages? Just what are these people smoking in Albany? It certainly isn't just plain cigarettes.
Bid deal, the budget is on time. That is probably the only thing they got right, isn't it? View Comment
