I did not know that you could cut teachers aid, but after voting you could rehire them with out board approval . Has anyone figured out that maybe the taxpayers are be taken advantage of ? Does anyone know what a scam artist is , with in our own city gov . If reported, that enrollment and taxable are down, then why are they asking for school improvements, more teachers aids, and a SLIGHT INCREASE in taxes , and for how long , until the next “ increase “ in the next five year B. S. garb ?
Time to have classes that will teach you when someone is lying to you ! Check your wallet every 20 secs.
DAILY RIFLE PRACTICE ON RT. 48
Every day from noon until 8 at night the same people think it is acceptable to shoot a rifle over and over all day long. It may be 5 rounds, then 7 rounds, then 12 rounds. I am not sure why no other neighbors have called the police, WE ALL CALLED LAST YEAR, I have had enough! Some people work NIGHT shifts, some people have small children, some people pay sky high taxes and should be able to enjoy a day without gun shots for hours on end Go buy a dump in the country and shoot each other. Sick and tired of the KABOOM every freaking day.
Can I sue a noisy neighbor?
If your neighbor keeps disturbing you, you can sue, and ask the court for money damages or to order the neighbor to stop the noise ("abate the nuisance," in legal terms). For money damages alone, you can use small claims court. For a court order telling somebody to stop doing something, you'll probably have to sue in regular court. Getting a small claims court to order your neighbor to pay you money can be amazingly effective. And suing in small claims court is easy, inexpensive, and doesn't require a lawyer.

taxpayers payout again
At the end of the pall-times ,it said “ due to the lost of revenue and decline of students, we are going to spend monies in up grades and maybe people will come in and fill those 132 parking spots ! Has it been a thought on how many people are on retirement incomes ? Has it been a thought that retirement income ( 401, pension , social security, etc…) does not go up , but the few, proud and thinking that they are the heroes, keep on thinking that people want to keep on shelling out monies ,for what ?
At some point, the taxpayers, will figure this out ! At some time , the taxpayers will figure out that the super of schools is not about the students, but about protecting there phony boloney jobs. I guess people like being lied too and told that they should do rehab, new offices, new fields , new contracts ( of course with no monies breakdown ) etc….
How much more of this B.S. and lies are we going to take ? Student enrollment declines every year, but yet rebuild for what, more
teachers, classroom monitors, bus drivers, busses, more classroom space, which in turn will be put as office space for more adult hiring ?
These people want to build as hiring hall for there employees, and will suck out everything they can from the taxpayers before they claim they need more monies for the students ! This is truly a boys club and the taxpayers are not represented. Greed does play the suck game and they have the smallest person doing the biggest scam !

$100 Reward for Safe Return of Stolen Cat
On Sunday 6/18/2017 (Father’s Day) Some ass monkey stole my 10 year old diabetic cat from right in front of my apartment in Hamilton Homes at approx. 7:45 am. If you do not return her immediately she will die within a week without her medication. Please respond to Ed at this site and he will contact me. All you have to do is drop her off in the Hamilton Homes parking lot across the street from the county office building (on Bunner St.) and I promise I will not hunt you down and kill you. It is also my belief that you are a drunk who was here banging some skank over the weekend and you stole the cat as you were heading home to your family. I’ve enclosed her picture. If anyone in town has seen this cat suddenly appear at your neighbor’s house, please email Ed at email@example.com
The Moron's Guide to Filing an Elder Abuse Complaint
The Council on Aging does NOT accept elder abuse complaints. Anyone who claims that their "good friend", the only male employee at the agency, told him the name of the person who filed the complaint against him is simply lying.If you have an elder abuse complaint and you call the Council on Aging they will NOT accept your complaint but will direct you to the proper agencies. The correct places to file complaints are at the Department of Social Services and the 800 hotline. All complaints are anonymous. They do not ask for your name,they do not record your phone number. The proper agencies do NOT share this confidential information with the Council on Aging. So therefore nobody at the Council on Aging has any information to share with their "good friends"
P.S. the Dept.of Social Services is also the place to report "deadbeat dads"

“A woman, a dog and a walnut tree, the more you beat them, the better they be”
The people that drive the orange county trucks are in leadership roles. They have to pay yearly fee to drive these vehicles to and from work, around 600.00 a year. They are not FREE !
That works out to $50.00 per month, including maintenance and insurance?
That is damn near free.

North West corner of W. 4th and Schuyler St. a tree has been planted and leaning into STOP SIGN!? Those morons of the *Oswego Renaissance Association* are out of control! They put planters in the streets next to a park on West Cayuga St.. which is an accident waiting to happen. (Some small kid comes running out from behind one of those planters and get hits by a car...) Now a tree is planted next to a stop signs. Wait till the tree grows up and the branches block the stop sign! The fat lady living in the house is going to be dancing on the corner for sure!

Mr Goeye , at this time , thank you for bullshiting the board of education, teachers ( who have no backbone , but want to retire with a BIG pension, health package and 401k . all of the health and pension for the rest of their lives . Think about this while some of you blame trump, but goes back to 1962 . Us taxpayers pay more for health insurance for teachers ( $ 2000.00 per month ) for the rest of there lives, and not even including there spouses ) but yet, the people that want it there way , will say it is the other sides fault .
Why not ask Former Mayor Mr. Sullivan how he got caught stuffing the ballot boxes in 1977.
RE: "THREE AND A HALF YEARS OF PERSONAL EXPENSES FUNDED BY TAXPERS AT PORT OF OSWEGO"
This is such bullshit!!!! The Longshoreman union is butthurt over the fact that "Zelko" the port director refuses to renew their contract.
The ILU has RAPED the port authority since the 50's with their outrageous demands for pay and bennys ( benefits ).
The "Hibberts" have run the Union at the port since the 50's. Third and fourth generation Hibberts are running or working with the union now at the port.
If you are not a Hibbert, married to a hibbert, immediate family of a Hibbert, a boyfriend or girlfriend fu*king a hibbert, or a really good friend of a hibbert, YOU WILL NOT work at the port authority. 2 years ago the President of the union was arrested, handcuffed and dragged out of the port authority by the FBI. He was told to never step foot on port authority property again.
He continues to run the union VIA phone conversations with his cousin, brothers and nephews. ( all HIbberts ).
"Zelko" and the port authority board of directors refuse to renew the contract with the ILU.
When they remove the union, they will hire hundreds of employees starting at minimum wage. Saving the port hundreds of thousands of dollars every year.
County Mounties Ride Roughshod

What will the cost be to the taxpayers ( for example ) be for Mr. Gowey on his pension, health insurance costs, 401 K investments, perks.
What a great deal this is for the people that did not come out to vote ! He gets the last laugh at the bank, like others that are part of this taxpayer scam . Nice job, Oswego Schoolboard, that a way to watch taxpayer’s monies !

Oswego High School " Top 100 Dinner"
This fiasco , quote : Sponsoring People, Oswego Rotary Club, The Board of Education, and Pathfinder Bank. Well the top 100 students did not have to pay, but anyone else had to pay $16.00 a ticket, with the amount of people there ,they had to made between $4000 to $5000 , so the sponsership is a joke. From the rotary, Mark DuFore opening speaker, new Rotary President, and Dr i dont have a clue Goewey !!! The food was excellant but for what they served "$16.00", Thomas DeCastro, called the students,shook their hands as well as the new rotary president,Dr. Sweeny and that was it, Goewey cound not even stand in line and shake the hands of these top 100 students, he just sat at the head table by himself . Number 1, no class by Goewey, 2) No represtation by PATHFINDER BANK ,SO how could this be sponsored by these organisations if WE ALL PAID $16.00 ,
VERY DISAPPOINTED !!!!

THREE AND A HALF YEARS OF PERSONAL EXPENSES FUNDED BY TAXPERS AT PORT OF OSWEGO
What would you do if you found out that you as a New York State taxpayer have been funding personal expenses of an individual appointed to the position of Executive Director at the Port of Oswego and that he is salaried at $230,000.00 and has been receiving a bonus of up to $23,000.00, (state reduced to $18,000.00 in 2017), has the best healthcare and a hefty pension?
If you knew your tax dollars were paying for trips to Croatia (where he is originally from) for him and his wife. Trips to Tampa, Florida (his home residence and where his wife stays) and the expenses incurred with such travel as airline tickets, airline fees, parking, hotel accommodations, car rentals and meals.
What would you do if you found out he was charging his personal meals on a regular basis at local restaurants and other establishments?
If you found out he was making numerous online purchases for his own personal use would you try to stop it?
Now what would you do if I told you if all of the charges he has made add up to over $100,000.00 since his tenure began In January 2014 to the present and that the Chairman of the board approved all such expenses? Whatever happened to ones Fiduciary Duty? There are legitimate charges in the total figure but there are far too that are not and so the question remains what can you do?
Well, you can do the following and highly recommend you do.
The Freedom of Information Law allows you to request all types of information from public agencies and its as simple as sending an email requesting what you want to know and you can request the information be sent digitally (or paper copies but paper has a charge per copy) and you will be given a time frame for when they will grant your request.
I have heard that some people have already requested information on this issue and that the Port has hired two attorneys to address this issue of public information being released by a FOIL request. This is a simple matter of public information and yet attorneys hired by the Port at taxpayers expense are trying to delay and suppress the release of this information.
What would you say if this same individual making these state credit card charges was forced out of the Port of Tampa and that there is a gag order in place with regards to the conditions of his dismissal? He was actually banned from ever stepping foot on the Port of Tampa’s property ever again. Here is a link for the story, http://www.tampabay.com/news/business/agreement-spells-end-of-port-of-tampa-deputy-directors-tenure/2108538 .
If you want to put and end to the abuse of your tax dollars, you can do the following.
Ask for copies of all original credit card and bank issued credit card statements that the Executive Director has made charges on since his tenure began January 1, 2014 through June 15, 2017. For this same time period you also would request copies of all original receipts for any and all purchases that the Director made or was reimbursed for and send that request to the records clerk at the following email address, firstname.lastname@example.org
If want the specifics of how your request should be handled you can go to New York State Committee on Open Government and look at the frequently asked questions section. https://www.dos.ny.gov/coog/
You can also contact the following agencies for assistance with questions and filing a complaint:
You may be struggling with your families day to day living but I can assure you this individual is not!
Its in your hands now, what will you do?

Let Me Get This Straight
A white working class American citizen stalks and shoots some Republican politicians.
That sounds like self defense to me.
The party of hate and their short-fingered, racist, pussy-grabbing president have been lying their asses off while they rob the middle class to make the richest one percent even richer. One man got tired of writing letters and decided to load his gun. I have been waiting for something like this to happen ever since Trump took office. They brought it on themselves. I do not feel even a little bit sorry for them. They will have a moment of silence at their ball game tonight and tomorrow they will be right back at their agenda of hate.
You have to wonder how many other people have been pushed to that point and it is only 147 days into the reign of Donald the Twit.
BLOCKING BRITTANY’S LAW FROM A VOTE IS DANGEROUS, IRRESPONSIBLE
Today's Quote June 15/2017
“It's a matter of taking the side of the weak against the strong, something the best people have always done.”
Harriet Beecher Stowe
Recently found out our best republican candidate for Supervisor has dropped out of race, due to the dirty politics by the republican committee making an endorsement before the primary, which has never happened in the history of Scriba, just another power pull by Burdick and company to keep control for personal gain. All the people that hold jobs in Scriba are friends or related to people on the board, nobody else stands a chance.
The gentleman that dropped out was Scriba's best candidate and had the backround and experience to be a great supervisor, but everyone up there that are presently employed by appointment would probably have been replaced, because they were not fairly awarded their jobs and are all connected.
The deputy sheriff that they endorsed is Burdick's friend and has NO business business backround what so ever, it's all in law enforcement. Do we need another cop running our town, NO, the first one didn't work out but they are shoving another down our throats and running unapposed now because of endorsement, very unethical to say the least, but Burdick will still have control. There is a large group of non controlled republicans not happy with the rep. committee, which happens to be most of the town board, that are planning to promote an investigation within our town offices as well as the committee and town board. They are all supposed to be working for us instead of themselves and their personal gains.
Go to the next board meeting this month and ask some questions and express your view. Burdick is the worst thing that has happened to our town and God has punished him for his unethical deeds !

I love those big planters my only complaint is we need more of them! if you run into a 4 foot high planter full of beautiful flowers well you should not be driving..... you can sit on a park bench and be miserable like mr red ink on this site. there are a few of us trying to make this place the beautiful city it can be! stop whining and do something to enhance this city !!
I think most people like the idea of planters. Putting them out in the street that is just plain Ozwego stupid. Maybe we could park a bunch of old boats out in the streets like they do in Bundyville. Your comments are meaningless since you do not even live in Oz.
Must have really struck a nerve with the comment about Comey.
More Cannon Fodder
I seems that there were three cannons at the Flexo Building. Two were the Civil War ones that were in Montcalm Park the third was some sort of replica that was being made by the DPW worker who runs that little kingdom down on west First Street. When recent inquiries about the Civil War cannons were raised the second ward alderman stopped down to see them first hand. Mr. Fields it seems was pissed off that someone from city hall came down to his workshop and within days of the alderman’s visit he took a plasma cutter and turned the third cannon into scrap metal. On another occasion it seems Fields had a disagreement with Rita Tickle. Shortly after while driving across the bridge he took a piece of electronic equipment belonging to the city and threw it out the truck window and into the river and proclaimed that is how I get back at them.

Americans largely believe that former FBI director James Comey is more trustworthy than President Donald Trump, a new HuffPost/YouGov poll finds, although his testimony did little to change minds about the seriousness of the relationship between the White House and Russia.
Could anything look more out-of-place than these idiotic urns placed in the road? No reflectors on them. Someone will run into them. I guess the flowers are supposed to enhance “quality of life” here somehow? They should have planted tomatoes in the foolish things so residents can go out and get something to eat after their water bills eat up their grocery funds. Better yet, plant some maryjane in them to help us recoup our money.

They found prosecution witness Bivens credible even after he changed his mind on van
They found the 2 jail house snitches credible even now when he said "Gary never came out and told me he killed anyone"...how can you trust this guy.
....and even now I would like to ask Todd....what led them to arrest these two guys, even after Swenkowski said he saw Richard leave the store alone?
The powers that be needed a scapegoat and Gary will die in prison. If the defense was based on heresay and rumor why was the word of a jailhouse rat believed? No eyewitness, no body, no evidence other than circumstantail against Gary. The convicted murderer is free while Gary rots in prison. Free the poor guy and let him die in peace.

Bag it Up
That is the way I understood It, No grass, leafs, branches, snow discharged, no bags of lawn garbage will sit in the streets ! So, who does one that votes and pays taxes to the City of Oswego, NY ,calls to report these violations ? And by the way, when the DPW rakes the leaves and cuts the grass in the parks, it goes out into the street ! Stupid is when being told to do nothing ! In the world of people that care how they direct, they show how being a pro is done !
Look at the Oswego School Board handing a Pin Head to a four year contract and promoting the High School Prin to a make up job ! That is what they do, create jobs, not cut costs to the taxpayers ! MS. VB, you should be mad at the fact that the higher ups are taking care of there “ buddies “ and not the taxpayers, students and construction of these buildings !
This is a “ Boys Club “ going on , and the taxpayers are paying the membership fee !

Energy companies are back on the scam
Well it's that time of year again, the energy scam, four times now we have been visited by a power supplier who says Oswego hired them to check power bills, also they say they are not selling anything but rather just want to see if your bill is correct so they can let National grid know everything is alright. What they really want is your name,address and account information, then you will receive constant calls to sell you a higher cost per kilowatt power, we all know we can purchase power and the grid will deliver the power from any provider it shows this on your bill, however rather than just tell you they are offering power supply other than NG, they feel they have to fool you. they will also tell that they have to keep coming back until they can see the bill, BEWARE THEY MAY SWITCH PROVIDERS FOR YOU once they have account info.

Well fellow Granby taxpayers, the good news just came in. The referendum was just DEFEATED BY 95 NO VOTES TO 47 yes votes. Maybe now the Fire commissioners will realise that there are 2 times more conservative, economical, taxpayers in Granby than those free spenders, with spend the taxpayers money attitude . Just remember this is probably just a slap in the face to them, it was not a knock out punch. It is several members opinion that they have a back up plan to spend our money further down the road.

The past four blogs posted here have showed a pattern of money mismanagement, do it my way, no consideration of the taxpayers in the Granby First Fire District. by the Fire Commissioners. Now when the subject of building a new fire station came up, inside information says that there were 2 fire commissioners against it, needless to say they were out voted by the other 3 commissioners. To date, not one of the 2 out voted commissioners has the gonads to speak publicly about this matter. The way it goes is, if you do not go along with the 3 other members way of doing business, they will find someone who they can depend on to vote, their way. All a matter of voting in their guy. This happened just recently. A long time commissioner was voted out by one of the other 3 commissioners friend. It seems that the days of the HAM BURGLAR are not over with. HAM BURGLAR JUNIOR is now a fire commissioner, no doubt with daddy's tutoring . So you can see that it is one big circle going around from one generation to another. This is a product of what you get by the Granby taxpayers not voting. The fire commissioners duty by law is to be a liaison between the fire department and the town board when it comes to administration of town money to operate the fire department .It makes one thinks, are they upholding their oath of office. The fire commissioners should realize that the tax payer main concern is service. A beauty contest it is not. There is no reason to think that you have to have the newest of every thing such as new fire house, trucks, more hose than other fire departments. JUST
GOOD RESPONSE TIME AND SERVICE. a NEW FIRE HOUSE WILL NOT ACCOMPLISH THIS.
WELL GRANBY TAXPAYERS IT IS NOW UP TO YOU TO GET OUT AND VOTE MAY 30,2017 BETWEEN 6-9 PM AT THE GRANBY CENTER FIRE DEPARTMENT. LETS SHOW THESE SO CALLED FIRE COMMISSIONERS WE DO NOT GO ALONG WITH THEIR PLAN BY VOTING NO.

First Fire District of the Town of Granby THE MUSTANG THAT DID NOT LE AVE THE STARTING GATE
Well Granby taxpayers residing in the First Fire District of the Town of Granby, here is the story of a Mustang that failed to leave the starting gate. It seems a few years ago our very clever, non fiscal minded managers called the Fire Commissioners of the Granby Center Fire Department had a brainstorm. Lets buy a car and raffle it off. This was going to be a successful moneymaker. No holds barred. It seems that a brand new top of the line Ford Mustang was purchased from a relative of a Fire Commissioner. Much money would be made! ! People from all over would come with their $100 bills to get a raffle ticket ! ! ABOUT $38,000 was spent on the vehicle. A GRAND TOTAL OF ABOUT $25,000 WAS RETURNED ON THE TICKET SALES. Simple math shows there was a LOSS OF ABOUT $13,000
was incurred . Inside sources at the GCFD indicate that the money was from the Karl Fuchs estate. So there is the story of the horse that didn't leave the gate ! !
Pass the word around amongst your family, friends, neighbors. Stay tuned for more of this story, it gets very interesting where and how the money is being misused and spent needlessly at the Granby Center Fire Department.
Remember to vote NO. By not voting, it is the same as voting yes. Vote is Tuesday May 30,2017, at the Granby Center Fire House 6 to 9 PM

First Fire District of the Town of Granby- ANOTHER PIE IN THE SKY
Here Granby taxpayers, is how the Granby Center Fire Department really blew a lot of money without shame or remorse. About 13 years ago a local hard working taxpaying farmer left the Granby Center Fire Department a considerable amount of money. The farmer was Karl Fuchs a son of hard working Swiss immigrants. Now, anybody that knew Karl, knew that he was very frugal, honest, and knew where every dollar was. The Fire Department was left in the neighborhood of $340,000 when he passed away. This was very generous on Karl's part. Now most people would not know what to do with such a large amount of money. Well leave to the Fire Commissioners// members of the Granby Center Fire Department, they could figure out what to do. They constructed a MUSEUM with some of the money and had his name put on it. This only cost about $25,000. Not we have to put something inside it. They then restored a antique fire truck to the tune of about $75,000. They then spent around $7,000 for a donut machine, which has not had very much use. A concession truck was purchased for over $20,000 and has not been used more than once. A fire commissioner offered a low ball figure of $3,000 for this trailer, with apparent intention to make a profit for himself by reselling it.Now Karl had a lot of respect for the GCFD. He had a barn fire quite a few years ago, the barn was lost, but the house was saved. Now anybody that knew Karl knows that he did not leave this money to the GCFD to spend it helter-skelter . This definitely was not Karl's way of spending money. Inside sources cannot find out what the rest of the money was spent on, Some claiming it is all gone. What if
any, fire equipment was purchased, which any reasonable person would think that was what Karl's intentions were, when he left them the money.
Everybody can now see a pattern of fiscal irresponsibly that is taking shape. They no doubt are saying to themselves look what we done with $340,000, now we can really go overboard with $1 short of 1 MILLION.
It is imperative that every taxpayer in Fire District 1, vote Tuesday May 30,2017 between 6-7 PM at the Granby Center Fire Department. Vote NO to short stop a 27% to 28 % increase in fire taxes. Make sure you notify all your friends, neighbors,relatives about this very important vote. By not voting, it is the same as a yes vote.

First Fire District of the Town of Granby-PIE IN THE SKY
Here Granby residents, residing in the First Fire District is how your Fire Commissioners are trying to spend our hard earned dollars. Their plan for this very large oversize fire station calls for
8 bays, you read it right EIGHT BAYS. Overkill ?, most people seem to think so. The City of Fulton has two fire stations with each one having 3 bays. Why does Granby need eight bays?. Rumor these
firemen/Fire Commissioner's are now dreaming of acquiring 2 new trucks if this proposed new station is approved. Right now with low volunteer membership it figures out about 3-4 firemen
per truck. The credibility of these Fire Commissioners is some what foggy. It seems that several years ago in there haste to spend money, they bought a fire truck. Fine, you do need a truck to fight fires. But in their bad judgment they DID NOT measure the height of the truck. It seems when they went to back the truck in the bay at the present station it would not fit inside TOO HIGH.. Now
they had to retro fit and raise the door for this over sized truck. If this bond for building a new fire station was passed, approximately $47,000 per year for 30 years would have to be collected through a
increase of fire taxes. This would result in a increase of fire taxes by 27 to 28 percent in increase of fire tax. Want to spend your hard earned money on this PIE IN THE SKY. With low number of volunteers that the GCFD has, a new fire station will not improve their service in any way, shape or form.
Pass the word around amongst your family, friends, neighbors, Stay tuned for more of this story, it gets very interesting where and how money is being misused and spent needlessly at the Granby Center Fire Department.
Remember to vote NO. By not voting it is the same as a yes vote.

Re: H Lee White Maritime Museum (What happened to the schooner “Ontario”?)
The schooner is up in Phoenix , NY sitting “on the hard” in a corner of the NYS Barge Canal yard rusting away along with some other boats. (Graveyard) The schooners “hand carved” wooden mast & spar’s are missing - except for part of the main mast which has been lying on a couple of pieces of “dunnage” next to the museum for the last couple of years. The mast and spars where always covered and stored inside a building for the winter and the boat was taken out of the water and “winterized.”
The “Gin Pole” for the mast has been taken away… The hand made sails, which where made by the same company that made the sails for the movie “Master & Commander: The far side of the world”, no telling where they are? Or what condition they are in, along with the ships rigging? And the ship’s “wheel” which came off another boat was over 75 years old and had been “refurbished” was never taken off and stored properly. It is still on the “schooner” exposed to the rain and snow. There’s just too much to mention here…
Yes! *Mercedes Meirs* and the rest of the clowns at the so called museum have totally destroyed the schooner. That museum is a joke and Mercedes Miers and the rest of the clowns down at the museum need to be run out of town for what they did to the schooner…

First Fire District of the Town of Granby
On May 30, 2017 between the hours of 6PM to 9PM there is a very important vote to be held at the Granby Center Fire Department for the approval or rejection of a new fire station.
The estimated cost is 1 dollar less than 1 MILLION ! Apparently, the present fire commissioners DO NOT know the history of the SACRED GROUNDS that they are intending to build on.
History will show that when the present fire station was built some 50 plus years ago, humans remains were found while digging for the foundation. Needless to say the project was
shut down for several days pending any possible criminal activity After a through investigation it was determined to be Native American remains. Representatives from the Onondaga
Nation picked up the remains and they were then interned on the Onondaga Nation at Nedrow, NY.
Question is what if any research has been done to date regarding this very important issue. Is this going to happen again?
Enlighten your family and friends who live in the First Fire District of the Town of Granby. Stay tuned for the rest of the story as there is a lot of information a lot of people do not know.
Remember if you don't vote, it is the same as yes vote.

Boy, I would be real proud of the low turnout of voters that voted in this last budget. 2203, really ? and a graduation number of 65% in the oswego high school ! Boy, if I was a member of the school board, and the super of the oswego school district., I do not think I would be doing a photo opp. in jeans and with a smile on my face ! Ms. V.B. , time for you to go after the super, and not the voters !
If the super wanted the taxpayers to be informed, he would put out a proper worksheet ! But I do not think that he wanted all taxpayers to be informed and get out and vote ! Did you ever hear him say how important it was to be informed and vote ? I am sure of the lack of information that was given on the real costs, was not given to the taxpayers for a reason.
Sometimes people do not want to hear the truth, and would rather be lied too ! I think the voter turn out shows this !

Re: Taxes (water/sewer assessment)
I don't blame you for being upset at the water and sewer assessment. Work is being done on the separation job this year, but was anything done last year? This will go on for years. It would be nice if we were given an accounting of what has been taken in and spent. Is the contractor overseeing the sewage treatment plant and now the water treatment plant being paid out of that fund? Are city employees being paid out of that fund? And if so, how does that affect the city budget when that comes up?

What are the chances that people will support Harborfest more than supporting the Vote ! I will bet that more people will get off of there ass to help Harborfest versus going out to Vote on School Budget and other elections. I will bet that Ms. V B is so proud ! After all, it was more important about students, than where monies come from to support programs . I guess people should just pay out monies and not Question The Super and the Board, after all, THEY know what they are doing!
The Only Thing That Matters
Is that they didn't kill anyone. Who cares if three druggies got loaded and killed themselves in a car wreck so long as they didn't take any innocent people with them. If the other two got in the car knowing he was drunk then they deserved what they got. You talk like this was his first time. How about the time he ran off the road out by Burritts. He left the scene that time too. Then there was the previous DWI, don't you count the ones that were for drugs. People like that should have there license revoked permanently and get sentenced to hard time.

H Lee White Maritime Museum
I see that the museum is making big plans for the summer months ahead. Has anyone heard if the big shots at the museum have made any plans, $$$, to display the home built lake schooner that was built by the members of the Ontario Maritime Society, OMS, and allegedly purloined by the geniuses at the museum. $$$. After they took control of the schooner, the greenhorn museum folks realized that they had no idea how to deal with a sailing ship of that size and complication. Last thing that was heard about the schooner was that it was dying a not too slow death hidden at some shipyard along the Oswego River. Can any somewhat intelligent, honest person be able to give the citizens of the area a true update of the present status of the ship? Let's face facts, in the long haul it is all about
stupidity, $$$ and self promotion. The rotting ship is not doing anyone any good. It seems that the museum bit off more than they can chew.
They probably did not give a rats ass about the boat and just wanted to get their hands on the Maritime Society’s bank accounts.
Regarding all the posts about Ellis singelton
Everyone is on here posting about Ellis Singelton but do any of them truly know him? I personally know all 3 of the boys and the ones that were injured in the car aren't even saying anything bad about him but here everyone is running their mouth. Look at yourself in the mirror each and every one of you and tell me you haven't done something you aren't proud of. Tell me you have never had a drink and then got behind the wheel. Guess what, all it takes is 1 to make the wrong move. Downgrading him for his mistakes isn't going to make anyone heal faster nor is it going to help ANY of them get over this. Mistakes were made but they aren't what make a person at all because again EVERYONE MAKES THEM are you going to get on here and bash every single person when they make the wrong move. You don't have to like him you don't have to talk to him but that doesn't give anyone the right to talk bad about him. Another thing everyone on here is making ASSUMPTIONS about he was on drugs it was this it was that, maybe you shouldn't open your mouth before you know all the facts!!! Each one of them made the choice to get in that car mistakes were made but none of them need to relive it because you need to act as though you are still in high school! They are all alive and that is the ONLY thing that matters!
Please show us where monies go ( police overtime, pension payouts, fire person overtime, pension payouts, amble. personal, overtime , pension payouts, dpw, overtime ,pension payouts, and of course health and medical coverage ).

Patty Ritchie Rips off taxpayers
Patty Ritchie, State Senator just ripped off the county taxpayers with her (illegal $15,000 "Lu-Lu), which she was not eligible for. The "Chairman of Senate Committees" are eligible for this taxpayer give-away, and Ritchie was given it by mistake and now says she won't give it back.. In the same article, she said that it is not about the money; its about serving the people; what a lying low-life.
If it were not for her staff, using taxpayers money to send out birthday cards to every old person, and pictures of events, she would not be voted back into office. Look up her record, and you will see she has NEVER sponsored a bill, she always co-sponsors some other senators hard work for the people. I watched he try to chair a meeting a couple of years ago on EEE at Oswego County Building ( where she gets a free office and is never there) and she did not have a clue of what she was doing. Thank goodness there were some local county officials who were there and took over the meeting. She looked like a blithering idiot!
Now I see her pudgy face on the front. page of the local rag supporting somebody's bill to help out the lake residents with flooding. Hey Patty, why don't you give back that $15,000 illegal Lu-Lu, and contribute it to the people who need help in your district. I guess $95,000 a year for a doing a nothing job is not enough for you. Time to replace this clerk, who thinks she is a senator...

off at some point. It is part of driving in this world.
I then witnessed the driver cut off the car in the parking lot and exit
his vehicle. The driver D.H. Went over like a maniac and accosted the
driver of the small Chevy . I understand being upset but think of this. It
is not just a poor action to take for many reasons including your or the
other persons safety but it is a punishable crime.

Along with all that, how do you expect the Sr's in oz to keep shelling out tax money for a OUT OF CONTROL school district still running with a antiquated hierarchy, and a system loaded with plenty of opportunities to save tons of money, but we need to hire more TEACHERS AIDS so we can become fatter and lazier.

We do not need another deputy trying to run a town with NO backround in a business environment, authority and control is their mindset, and Burdick has well displayed this trait. Why don't they go to the justice center for work where they should be with all the rest of retired policeman. Their mindset doesn't fit trying to run a town.

Oswego school budget
Disappointed but not surprised. Almost always the school budgets pass. Another 4% tacked on to our bills. The budget is never cut to reflect what economic conditions exist in this district and county.
The raise in the budget this year is over. What about the next 2, 4, or 5 years from now. By then are we going to be paying another 15-20%, or more than we are this year? Can you afford that? Don't forget the raising of the town/city county property taxes. They aren't going down either.
Either those on the school board are afraid to review and disagree with the School superintendant or they are wealthy enough to consider a few percentage points not worthy of their consideration. Maybe none of them pay school taxes so it doesn't effect them.
As I stated in a previous email, 2 years age the raise was 10%, .last year 2.5% and now this amount
With new board members voted in now, lets vote out the ones that approved this budget and hope we can start fresh. At his rate those purchases you want to make on things you want or need will have to wait or will not happen at all, as most of your disposable income will be going to taxes to support too many staff and sdministrators, who will get their wish lists fulfilled, but not yours.

Smashes the car and runs leaving his bloody friends to take care of them selfs. I hear he refused a blood test. If he didn’t have a license who was the car registered to. That person should get charged to.
Ellis ran cuse he was holdin. Somewhere he stashed it before the cops got him. Right now he is ratin out all his Niggas to make a deal and stay out jail.
City School Budget
Yeah, you know it's a funny thing. When the school board gets ready to negotiate another Budget Term they use the last Budget as a starting source. Then they add all these things that can be trimmed, spin out with a Budget of 10%-20% more, show the public what it looks like. Then tell us that they can shave some of the Budget down and come back with just what they wanted the first time around 2%-3% increase. It's Bullshit, we all know the Game. Try starting with 10%-20% decrease and see what you can do with that.
When I went to school, class rooms were from 32-45 pupils. These old time school teachers were in class teaching alone! God love them, plus we had the old math, the real math!
Do not accept the new budget, let them earn their negotiations. When it comes to voting for the OCSD Board, do not revote anyone in, do not vote for previous OCSD employees or their relatives. Why have a fox watching the hen house?????? Where is Fran Hoefer when you need him??????

Ellis Singleton Jr. was charged with DWI, Leaving the scene, Driving w/o a license oh... and of course speeding. This scumbag slammed into a legally parked pick up truck going at least 60mph. Then while 2 other Novelis employees were trapped in the wreckage w serious injuries. Singleton fled the scene.
This is the 2nd DWI in about 3 years. the other was for Driving while on Drugs. Anyone that knows this lowlife knows he a POS... Piece of SHIT. Woo is poor Ellis. If you look at his FB (which I think since he got busted pulled it down) he is always bragging about the Bat Mobile with his Niggas out running the cops.
Everyone knows he uses H and all the Hydro pills he can get. Novilis has no drug policy. When the POS gets called out at @ work the 1st thing he says is "your picking on me caus I’m black" He had so many issues at Novelis Daddy Ellis had to beg to get him put on his shift and work with him to cover for him.
If you haven’t seen the pics his Bat mobile did hold up to well. Not that the other two are innocent , how come its always the other people that get hurt not the SCUMBAG Driver Ellis. Hopefully this time the court system will work and take this creature off the streets before he kills some one.

Great news in the Saturday Palladium-Times that 600 jobs have been saved and
the Fitzpatrick nuclear plant will be transferred to Excelon. This will
not only provide clean energy to New York residents, but on a local level with
help with the tax base and save our taxpayers a huge increase in taxes.
Although Cuomo would like to take all the credit, our community has worked
diligently to support keeping this plant open. Nearly everyone has
foreseen how devastating the closing of this plant would be to this area.
To complete this transaction, Excelon needed the consent of the tax
jurisdictions to accept the PILOT agreement, an agreement that local
officials have put untold hours into negotiating over the last 3 years.
When the transfer was put to vote, The Mexico School District school board
and the entire Oswego County Legislature voted UNANAMOUSLY to consent to the
transfer to Excelon. The Scriba Town Board, whose constituents might
benefit the most, had four members present for the vote. Three were in
favor, but one voted against the transfer. All in all, 34 elected
officials from across the County voted in favor, with one "No" vote. A
"No" vote coming from a Board member who is a Scriba resident but a new-comer to this process
and apparently has no consideration for the time and effort everyone who
truly cares about this community has put into this accomplishment.
Someone who has a stable job with the school district and doesn't have to
worry about losing it if the plant closes. Someone who apparently has not
considered the bone-crunching increase in taxes to not only Scriba
residents, but the entire County, should this plant close. Who is this
person with the over-inflated sense of self-importance? Kelly Lagoe.

Ever since the days of Newt Gingrich

Fight for Council President
It is clear that the mayor is not supporting
Shawn Walker for Council President, and, so what, he has no say in it.
Walker, after his last action to screw the city out of revenue for the
city from the Town of Oswego made it very clear he is in the pockets of
the slumlord association. Nate Emmons is no better, and has only been on
the council for less than a year. Emmons showed the entire city that by
supporting the Slumlords, screwing the city taxpayers out of a new revenue
stream, and his poor voting record, should eliminate him as a candidate
for Council President. After his poor performance on the council for less
than a year, this should eliminate him from running for any elected
position, as he has demonstrated he is for sale to the highest bidder.
This leaves turn-coat VanBuren and Coradino.
Nobody is going to support VanBuren based on his lousy track record .Coradino
is one of the landlord clique and has not shown any leadership skills.,
leaving Councilor McLaughlin and Councilor Reynolds. Reynolds has less
than a year and is still learning, and McLaughlin certainly has the skills
and leadership, but is smart enough not to want the job.
Here they go again, trying to select the
best of the worst candidates, by a group of councilors that have no desire
to serve the people or city, and are in it for what they can get out of
Seems that VanBuren, Walker, Emmons have
show their propensity to corruption, so that leaves Coradino, a landlord
to try to lead the pack.
Richard Thibadeau's Van
In The Possession Of The Oswego County Sheriff's Department.
All of the doors are black and
there is a large black stripe down each side.
Only the front is all white
OCSD investigators took statements from people describing a white van and or a light blue van.
A 10-year-old with 20-20 vision or a visually impaired 110-year-old will tell you this is not a white van.
This is a BLACK AND WHITE van.
ANYONE WHO GAVE A DESCRIPTION (from a view other than head on),
WHICH DID NOT INCLUDE THE COLOR BLACK,
DID NOT SEE THIS VAN.
Inside sources say the OCSD has recently conducted yet another search/inspection of Richard Thibadeau's van and again found no DNA or any other evidence.
That is at least twice they have proven there is no connection between Thibadeau's van and the disappearance of Heidi Allen!
Does anyone know if our resident fire department THIEF is one of the firefighters being laid off? If not he should be.
Looks like he is trying to impersonate a Fire Chief, maybe he is going to apply for the Chief's job next year.
This is OZ he/she could be the next chief.
Who made a noise
In David Stinson's statement, given on 4-8-1994 @ 3:56 pm, he says: "This all occurred in about 1-2 minutes. I waited a few minutes for the clerk. I remember hearing something in the back room to the left. This sound reassured me that someone was there and I waited patiently for the clerk."
To the left? By the back door, the one not everyone knew about? The one the "family" used? Look at this picture closely, see the plywood covering up the old back door, to the left. Who was back there?
If the back room looked anything like what can be seen outside the back door he probably heard rats.
Today's Quote September 22/2016
“We were making the future, he said, and hardly any of us troubled to think what future we were making.
And here it is!”
H. G. Wells
I read what you did, and we all know who you are!
I read what you did, and we all know who you are! Donald Dodd, Reuel Todd, Greg Oakes, Mark Moody, Daniel King, and Donald Todd
As a citizen of this county, you all work for me, not each other. This is too inform you that I am calling you out, for the truth !
I have read all of the information you filed. There is no glaring evidence against Gary Thibodeau, because if there was, you would have had to file it. Further witheld evidence
would constitute another Brady Violation. I pondered today what in the world the former jurors were told in Gary's trial by you, Donald Dodd. Your timeline is preposterous. It is not even worth mentioning. Reuel Todd, please tell me what led you to the Thibodeau brothers? I cannot find any supporting documentation that sends the case towards them. A criminal never calls and identifies themselves, as being at the scene of the crime. Who is Borrelli, and why were you going so far as to talk about him being in a photo line up for the clerks at the D&W 4-16-1994, but on 4-14-1994, Borrelli was given "walking papers" yesterday. That would have made it 4-13-1994. On 4-15-94, you say:" Is it time to do a photo line up on Borrelli?" So you gave Borrelli "walking papers", I believe that means you let him go, on 4-13-94, but on 4-15-94 and again on 4-16-94, you were going to have the clerks at the D&W look at his picture? But after 4-16-94, Borrelli is never mentioned again.
On 4-14-94, the lead sheet says, "Danny Barney, has come into view as a probably suspect". On 4-15-94, the lead sheet says: Wheeler interviewed Dan Barney yesterday,
at length. Believes Barney is not a suspect." Where are the notes from the interview with Dan Barney? 4-15-94, it says, "late yesterday, Gary Thibodeau, entered the picture as a possible suspect. This developes from a lead that came in early on." Where is the lead, Moe? I can't find any documentation of a lead about Gary, being a suspect. Who told you Gary had a crush on Heidi? Or that Gary was ever coming on to Heidi? The only documentation about anyone coming onto Heidi, is in her diary, about her boss, Matt Duell, not Gary.
The case against Gary Thibodeau, regarding Heidi Allen's abduction, is all like the above mentioned fairy tales. This person is a suspect, no, we let him go. Hey, this person might have done it, no, we talked to him and he said he didn't do it. So you decided amongst yourselves, to pin it on a person and his brother, that you had no evidence against, only a citizen that was trying to help you.
So I say that the Appellate Division will get the public the answers we have been seeking for 22 years. Dumb of us to ever believe that our District Attorney's Office, or
Sheriff's Department, were honest or truthful. All you were looking for was someone to blame it on, to puff yourselves up, but I'm sure soon, it will be deflated, like yesterday's
birthday balloons. The public doesn't believe you, trust you, or support corrupt officials.
Oakes habitual liar
Oakes you are a bold faced liar anyone with a computer and access to this blog can see how much of a liar you are. In 1994/95 arrest and conviction of Gary Thibodeau. Fahey repeatedly requested the CI file, he was told Allen wasnt an informant. He then requested a dismissal due to with holding of evidence. The old news reports do not support Oakes bull shit lies. Fahey over and over called Dodd, out on this CI status and requested her entire CI file. Again they played the Allen wasnt a CI. http://heidiallenarticles.blogspot.com/?m=1 take the time to study openly on your own. The DA office are hubitual liars and so are the Sheriffs. Request a state police if you need an officer. The lies are sickening. The Sheriff dept. Should be shut down.

Gary Thibodeau...The death of common sense
Are the prosecution witnesses really witnesses as to what they saw or are they just a link to a prosecution procedure that convicted an innocent man.
Witnesses provide information to help the prosecutor convince a jury that a person is guilty as charged.
- Dave Stinson: was there from 7:41 - 7:45, waved down a deputy but did not tell him that he saw a kidnapping.
- Richard was there and left at 7:42 and was seen by Stinson (at least he had to be) but not seen kidnapping HA.
- Stinson walked in after 7:42 and no Heidi. Now how could Richard have done this in one minute, with Stinson being there but did not see anything. He also never mentioned that he saw anyone let alone Gary.
- Mr. Swenkowski said he watched Richard leave the store and then left. He was there at 7:41 also.
- Swenkowski also saod he saw one person.
- Two people there at the time of the crime and saw nothing.
- Bivens said he saw two husky men and a women but NO TIME WAS MENTIONED IN THE DA's STATEMENT OF FACTS.
- So this makes a question of when Bivens was there. Had to be after and close to 7:42 according to the OCSD as that is when Richard bought cigs and left.
- How could Bivens see the crime and Swenkowski and Stinson didn't although they had to be there at the same time because Stinson walked in at 7:41 and no Heidi.
- Bivens stated that he did not remember telling a deputy later that he had driven by at 8-8:30. He saw the crime, then Stinson has to be mistaken about HA not being in the store. Which could happen but he flagged down Deputy Curtis and he also checked for Heidi...not found.
- Stinson said he saw two husky men with a girl in the parking lot. He said there wasn't anyone or cars in the lot.
Wasn't Stinson and Swenkowski there per their statements. Swenkowski also said the deputies tried to convince him that his time was off but he stood his ground on the time he gave.
- I personally don't believe Bivens was even there..(just my opinion). His time is way off and no time was recorded when he first gave his statement according to the DA's Facts...no time given with his statement. Why not?
- Then we have Gary going to a MA prison and snitches give stories that we now know are not true.
- Bottom line: two witnesses there at the time of the crime but did not see Richard taking Heidi. Bivens saying he saw two husky men taking her (but no time was given by him) but Swenkowski and Stinson were there and did
not see anything.
To the DA involved in this. You sir have NO WITNESSES AT ALL! Maybe a story teller but if at least you should have had three witnesses. Bivens could not have seen a crime between 8-8:30 because the OCSD was there at that time.
I submit to you that you set up a frame of Richard and Gary Thibodeau (and a bad one that is full of holes) got bad info from snitches who I think lied and their statement proves it.
So I am going to ask in this paper right now to Donald Dodd to please answer my question: How did three people there at the time of the crime and two didn't see anything and one who didn't even know or did not want to tell what time he was there, which had to be around 7:41-7:42 did see the crime?
If I were you, I would be afraid, very afraid of a federal Investigation. If no investigation happens if Gary wins his appeal, call your state representative, senator and anyone else that would help.
THIS WAS A SET UP AND A FRAME.....BUT YOU'RE NEXT!
If the speed indicator says you’re over the limit, is there a cop around to give you a ticket?

Today's Quote September 18/2016
"True wisdom is less presuming than folly.
The wise man doubteth often, and changeth his mind; the fool is obstinate,
and doubteth not; he knoweth all things but his own ignorance."
The book is largely based on secondhand information from the Sheriff’s Department, the District Attorney’s office and family members. The Sheriffs lied, the D.A. lied and the family lied so that basically makes the book fiction.
Why wasn't this in the police blotter,

Show Up Time
So if a OFD is called in, but sent home with in one hour, that person gets five hours of time and a half ( 7.5 of straight time ) . Do these people get called in , maybe four times with in a 24 hour period ? So maybe , one of these hereo’s could collect twenty hours of time and a half ! That comes down to ¾ ( or 7.5 % of a full paycheck Per Day ) .
20 hours per shift x $ 125.00 per hour = $ 2,500.00 per man ! And if they call in four men x $ 2,500.00 = $ 10,000.00 per shift ( 24 hour ) . So you could be spending $ 70,000.00 per week in show up time ! Which, in the worse case world ,would be $ 70,000.00 x 52 weeks = $ 3,640,000.00 a year, which, at this time, I do not think that the Famous OFD Ambl. Corp. could recoup! The chief eithers understands how to protect the membership , and does not care about the taxpayers, or is really bad at math ( checks and balances ). Maybe big brother can do some 2nd and 3rd mathbook coin sckills!

RE: Four More Misdemeanor Plea Bargains For Oaks
We should start a fund me page to pay there cellmates to beat and rape them every day.
In order to have cellmates they would have to be convicted of something bigger than a misdemeanor.
The Heidi controversy
I was under the direct impression. Heidi switched her schedule with Sally Brooks. Who was suppose to be working at the Fish on in port Ontario. Either way. There are conflicting stories from Heidi family and the DA office. If she was not scheduled the only ones who would be aware of this switch. Are her family, Brett and DUELLS, in which case Ms. Duell file seems to have been tampered with. Very convenient. No one else would ever have known. Unless Heidi told someone. I very much likely doubt that was her topic of discussion.
Re: Gary Thibodeau and the Other 10,000 a Year Wrongfully Convicted in America
Re: Whos Lying
We know the Family lied, The OCSD lied and the DA lied.
Since the book is based on information which mostly came from these three sources then the answer to the question is everyone.
It's common sense
Why would Donald Dodd or Todd know more. Hmmm, maybe because they supposedly investigated and prosecuted this case. No matter what you post. The fact is. They should have known. Both her sister and their dept. All have different times, ones clearly lying. I'll bet it is not Lisa Buske, but the DA office that was said in 1994 to be out of touch with the public and their mistakes cost human lives. They were also in trouble back then for many different reasons. From lying, to prosecutorial misconduct. If you read the old news. You'd be well aware of their tricks. I highly doubt her sister is bull shitting anyone in her book. But I do not doubt that the DA office did a ton. Many people do not agree with your questions as to how could Dodd or Todd know. Well in order to prosecute this case you'd think they should have. Ridiculous remarks.
OAKES STATEMENT OF FACTS, FILED OCTOBER 2015, PAGE 12, FIRST PARAGRAPH:
Heidi often offered to work on the holidays.
Regarding Easter Sunday, another employee Sally Brooks, and Heidi, were willing to work; initially Ms. Brooks
was scheduled to open, but she had another job that needed her that morning. Therefore, Heidi agreed to open
the store that morning.
"WHERE'S HEIDI" BOOK WRITTEN BY HEIDI'S SISTER, LISA BUSKE
CHAPTER ONE, PAGE 24, FIRST PARAGRAPH:
The day started like Easter Sunday did in other small American towns. Heidi arrived at work early, anticipating
the time she would spend with family and friends later in the afternoon. She volunteered to cover the morning shift
so a coworker could spend the holiday with her children, even though it meant she would be the only one working at the store.
(FYI, THE DUELLS NEVER HAD MORE THAN ONE EMPLOYEE WORKING THE STORE AT A TIME)
I BET HER FAMILY KNEW WHY SHE WAS WORKING!
WHY WOULD DONALD DODD OR REUEL TODD KNOW MORE?
WHAT IS THE TRUTH, WHO IS TELLING STORIES?
If She was working for someone else how were Gary and Richard supposed to know this?????
Did Deputy Van Patten drop her work schedule in the parking lot?????
Why was the first register tape transaction 4:06?
Why does the book say Heidi started work at 5am?
Why does testimony show Heidi started work at 6am?
Why does testimony show Heidi was on the schedule to work that Sunday?
Why is a “story” that another person was originally scheduled but Heidi took over instead?
Why does testimony show Brett left at 6:35am that Easter morning but the book says around 7:15am?
The inmates statements were taken mid-July.
Why did OCSD get the transaction tape from April 2, 1994 on August 11?
Why was Mrs. Duell’s file tampered with on August 12?
Why did Bivens testify at Grand Jury that he was in the D&W parking lot and the only car there was Heidi’s, his first statement says he went by the D&W between 8-8:30 but his testimony was leaving Oswego at 7:30am, and his testimony was about witnessing a physical altercation?
How could Richard and/or Gary have possibly gone to the D&W the morning of April3, 1994, taken Heidi to near Gary’s “to talk to her” brought her back to the store before anyone noticed her gone, made a purchase and then kidnapped her with the time between ALL the customers that were there the morning of April 3, 1994?
Final answer-People lied to help get a quick conviction, in hopes of finding Heidi or “getting their man” to placate the community after Mr. Benningfield told the searchers that the kidnapper could be standing there next to them.
Lisa-you did the research years ago. You know part of the Truth….that Gary and Richard are innocent. Do what’s right. You have plenty of support. Stand up to your family and the lying people you have, unjustly, high regards for.
Here is a direct link to the comments Murtagh has made online. The top comment reads.

10/24/2014 10:32 AM
Which is an out right lie. As we are all aware FBI Points to Bohrer. In 1994 they testified then that there was no link between the Thibodeaus and Heidi Allen.
Murtagh also can not deny it was him. Several times. He makes it very clear. It is him.

Little or big, it's a lie. You were giving some impression that the Caddy Dodd brought up was disposed of as well. It is not the truth.
Who's lying game!
Time to compare some facts, between the book, "Where's Heidi", written by Lisa Buske, sister of Heidi, and DA Greg Oakes, Statement of Facts, filed October of 2015.
STATEMENT OF FACTS, page 1, SAYS: On Easter morning, April 3, 1994, Mr. Law arose at 5:45 am at Heidi's residence. He and Heidi left the residence at ab out 5:50am, and Mr. Law followed Heidi to the D&W Convenience Store. Heidi drove her maroon 1984 Pontiac Sunbird Station Wagon, and Mr. Law drove his 1987 Ford Bronco. They arrived at the store at 5:55 am.
Lisa Buske's Book says: Chapter 3 "A Time to weep" , Paragraph 3, page 35: As my parents settled into their swivel chairs, Ed sat on the couch while I snuggled into my favorite childhood chair. We heard Brett's black Dodge Cougar pull into the driveway then Heidi's feet skipping through the kitchen.
Chapter 1 Page 26: At 5 am, on April 3, 1994, Heidi opened up the D&W Convenience Store, located at the intersection of State Route 104 and State Route 104B, and her boyfriend Brett came along to keep her company until the store got busy. Brett often accompanied her on those early mornings.
STATEMENT OF FACTS page 1, last paragraph, last sentence, SAYS: Mr. Law left at about 6:35 that morning.
Lisa Buske's Book page 26, last sentence, says: Brett left the store around 7:15 am
Who's wrong? Who's telling a story? What was Brett driving, a Cougar, or a Bronco? Hey Oakes, did you ever check your "facts"? These facts, are very important, maybe you don't know which is true, who's playing the liar game?
The other day there was a fire on East 4th Street and I heard that we called in all of our off duty personnel but then sent them home pretty quickly. Don't they all get a minimum of like 5 hours overtime every time they are called in. So much for saving money on overtime. How come we don't call on any of the other departments in the county to help us when there is a fire. The volunteer departments wouldn't cost us any money and could probably get here quicker then some of our off duty members that live quite a distance away. Just my 2 cents.
RE: Lies more lies Oakes
Oakes is using classic inadmissible hearsay and uncorroborated rumor to bolster LE’s theory of how Richard and Gary were involved?
Did Mr. Neadle testify? Did Mr. Neadle hear Gary say what Mr. Maynes claimed?
Wow, would have expected more from a top LE official. You studied this case for how long? Shame on you for believing/going along with the sham.
Love all the documents you provided in your Statement of Facts, Affirmations, and Exhibits. Can you publicize more? Please!!
Today's Quote September 11/2016
“The most erroneous stories are those we think we know best - and therefore never scrutinize or question.”
Stephen Jay Gould
Lies, lies, lies
1. Gary "confessed" to 2 inmates.
2. Illegal search of Gary's property that yielded evidence of Heidi.
3. Phone wire taps.
4. Human bones in furnace.
5. Remains in rolled rug of blue van.
These lies are so easily exposed from the documents made public in DA Oaks' filing it's borderline comical that some people still believe them.
Truth, truth, truth
1a. news article 1995-Dodd says inmates did not say Gary admitted involvement. This is corroborated by the inmates' statements, trial testimony, and by more recent interview with a news reporter.
2a. Fahey tells Judge in pre-trial Hearing there were 2 searches of Gary's property. No pre-trial Hearing was held due to illegal evidence gathered and testimony reflected details of items seized and/or sent to FBI lab. Both searches occurred while Gary was incarcerated. First search on or about June 22, 23 when furnace was seized. Second was on or about July 24 when property was searched and 5 cadaver dogs brought to site with no alerts of human remains. There is indication from Oaks filing that the July 24 search was by warrant. NOTE: blue van was on property for all days of searching and evidence gathered from that van was also testified to.
3a. Phone records were subpoenaed for the MA witnesses. These witnesses were incorrect about Gary and Sharon being in MA on April 3, 4, 5 with a broken down Caddy because deputies positively viewed the Caddy at Gary's property during that time frame.
4a. Testimony shows that no human remains were found from forensic testing and bone fragments were more consistent with animal.
5a. Evidence first gathered from Richard's van on April 9, 1994 which showed no evidence of Heidi "ever" being in that van. Evidence showed that van was seen at a car wash after April 9. Piece of rug that was missing since the first search was found on Richards property. Property receipt given to Thibodeau's, forensically tested to reveal canine DNA. Witness statement about Richard and Gary seen disposing of a rug in the woods with Heidi's remains was proven false by evidence that Richard was working at the time and no physical evidence that Heidi was there (law enforcement physically went to location). Testimony shows that evidence was taken from the blue van during the search on or about June 22 that did not link to Heidi. Testimony from recent Hearing shows that after August 1994 when the blue van was junked, there was no evidence of Heidi in a rolled rug that was in the van.
Questions that should be answered:
Why is there a 40 minute gap between Brett's testimony of leaving the D&W and the time the book says?
Why did law enforcement and family say Heidi wasn't a CI when a Sergeant recognized her as a CI?
Why wasn't the bulk storage Heidi file boxes made available to Defense?
Why weren't the fingerprints from the index card used in conjunction with the notebook fingerprints?
How did Mike have a fax statement of Bivens with the Oswego County DWI unit phone number?
Why was the first time on the register transaction record 4:06?
Why did Brett testify in Gary's trial that Heidi wasn't afraid of anyone in particular but in Richard's he mentions Matt Duell?
Why does Dodd affirm during a pre-trial Hearing that he was withholding information and wouldn't say what he was withholding if he was going to make "the entire OCSD file" available to Defense?
Why wasn't the fact that Sharon and Richard were acquitted of their charges relevant to Gary's Appeal in 1999?
Why wasn't Wheeler reprimanded for lying during a pre-trial Hearing?
Why isn't Pietrowski being held accountable for missing texts?
Why does Todd keep lying to the public?
Why doesn't Oaks do what's right in the miscarriage of Justice?
How could Heidi's family stand behind law enforcement after all that has been made public?
Why was Jennifer the only recently named given a polygraph?
Why is law enforcement covering for convicted criminals when 3 dogs indicate in an area related to the boasting of several criminals?
Why was an excavator brought to the cabin site without the medical examiner present?
When will the Appellate Division begin hearing oral arguements?
Why was it not relevant to Gary's jurors that several witnesses admitted during trial to misconduct by law enforcement in relation to their written statements?
When will the insanity of "Justice was served" end?
Who will be the first to "tell the whole truth and nothing but the Truth"?
Who will man-up and answer - WHERE'S HEIDI?
Compare the theory of Gary and Richard being involved in the disappearance of Heidi and what is known as Fact and compare that to the recent revelations.....#FreeGary.
Lies more lies Oakes
This is how bad the DA office adds to words from Witnesses. Read #179. Bold faced lie. Oakes directs you to exhibit 12, as proof. He says that Roger towed a van and a CADILLAC off Gary's property. Exhibit 12 from Mr. Needles. Says no such thing. He only says that Roger and David Maynes towed a van off Gary's property and Gary was passed. David was bragging about getting arrested for trespassing on Gary's property. Well, if the old junk van sat on Gary's property for over ten years. And it did not run, move, and was never owned by Gary. But the DA wants to give the picture this van could have been used and David and Roger disposed of it. Please, explain why Gary would be pissed for them disposing of what Oakes would like to believe was evidence, or the possible van used. Give me a break, I'm certain if it was, he would have been relieved they got rid of the evidence. Oakes, you sir, are the dumbest DA in this country. You also claim that Kidnapping/murder/disposing of a van across the country lines has a five year statue of limitations. Murder DA jokes has no limitations nor does the evidence in its case. Disposing of evidence with possibly a murdered teen, disposed of in Canada, has no statue of limitations. You sir, must truly think the citizens of Oswego are morons. See attached comments, exhibit 12 and Jokes statue of limitations of five years, to help protect a convicted Murderer Steen. I do not know which ones more psychotic. Ocsd, DA office, or these suspects.
It can't be simple. Either way. You do not think outside of the box, let alone inside of it. Richard or as your exhibit 12 mr. Needles calls him Dicki Murtagh actually plastered across the internet one night, that he and a employee did haul a van out of Fernwood, off valley road at a red house. Now this red house was very Good friends to Michael Bohrer. It couldn't be Oakes that they covered their ass by moving a van off Gary's property. So they could move this second van on Valley Road. And say it was the van they moved off Gary's. Oakes you can not possibly be that stupid. It's common sense. In which case you lack a shit load, I believe you should track down Mr dicki and request he explain the white van they removed off Valley Road, in Fernwood, for Roger Breckenridge. Around the time of Heidi. If you need a copy of those messages. They can easily be supplied. You also cannot claim it wasn't Murtagh who posted them. A reporter called him out online confirming it was indeed Richard Murtagh.
Omg please no mistake we (3 of us) picked up two vans at gt house ... Me roger & a 3rd person picked up a dift van in fern wood I can't tell you where it was but I'm sure I can drive right to there like I did last week going to Gary's house ( that I had only been to twice before in the 90's

Pretty sick Murtagh plastered that across the internet. Then requests the reward money. What a great guy. With zero conscience.
Mrs. Duell testified about the register tape, items purchased and time...??
It strikes me as odd that "The time had to be entered into the memory of the cash register. (Tr. 1488)."
Could it be possible that the register tape was...manipulated when the deputy went back on August 11, 1994 to get the register tape from April 2, 1994? Mrs. Duell's OCSD file was tampered with on August 12, 1994.
RE: Questions to be answered
Deputy Curtis testified in the original trial that the money from the register was deposited in the bank. (DA's Statement of Facts does not state this.)
-Sergeant Lortie specifically calls Heidi a "confidential informant" and recognizes her name from working with the ACT team.
It appears his involvement with the case after this report became limited?
-Family, LE and Dodd's denial that Heidi was a "CI".
-Neither VanPatten nor Mrs. Duell notify Heidi or the family of the information dropped in public.? (Thinking they may have considering Brett would stay at Heidi's work until customer traffic picked up.)
-The informants card, photo, etc was "lost" from the time of the Heidi Center move until it was "found" in bulk storage within OCSD on May 16, 1995.
-Pre-trial Hearing Judge's acknowledgment that Dodd was not going to say what he was holding back as far as discovery.
-No mention whatsoever from either Defense or Prosecution during Gary's trial that Heidi may have been a confidential informant. Dodd didn't carry the card, photo, etc...to the original trial? There were 2 prints on the card taken to the Heidi Center right after the disappearance but LE used notebook prints instead? One would think the prints taken in a controlled manner would be more relevant?
-Mrs. Burr recently signs a statement about Heidi's involvement with LE in an informant capacity up to a short time before her disappearance. Brett's recent dialogue with Oakes about Heidi being afraid of a "coke-head" that lived near the D&W.
**"Good arrest, good conviction"....PPPfffttt**
“Writer and VanPatten returned to the store and were informed that Inv. Scruton could not locate C.I. file for Allen. VanPatten was Allens contact for ACT Team so writer asked VanPatten if he turned the file over to Inv. Scruton. He did not recall Allen as a C.I. in 1991 until writer reminded him. VanPatten then called the office and had someone check his mailbox. The file was located and relayed to the crime scene.”
Sgt. Lortie’s report 4/27/94
When you see the date of this report 4/27/94 you have to wonder if it was the original or a revised report. Otherwise why would it take 23 days to get it done.
I think everyone knows cops will not rat out other cops but honest cops will not take a hit for crooked ones either. If you ask an honest one to give a statement or testify they will often tell you the facts as they happened. They will not volunteer anything someone in authority has to ask. In many cases those in authority know or suspect the answers they will get so they do not ask the questions, i.e. Watergate and Serpico.
At any rate that just may be what is happening in the paragraph above. After 23 days Sgt. Lortie has had time to think over what has been going on.
VanPatten somehow manages to lose Allen’s picture ID card indicating she was an informant, and he does it in the parking lot where she works.
Three years after working directly with Allen as a Confidential Informant he tells Sgt. Lortie he does not remember her. Then in the next breath VanPatten knows exactly where to find Allen’s missing C.I. file.
At that point someone should have been asking VanPatten to account for his whereabouts on the morning of April 3/1994.
According to testimony from Brett Law, he left the store at 6:35am BUT according to the book “Where’s Heidi” page 27, Brett left at 7:15am. Which is it? It makes a VERY big difference. 40 minute difference. The difference between the inmates being truthful or not.
According to the timeline, there were no customers between 7:20am and 7:38am. That would leave 18 minutes for the “confession” to be true.
It takes about 16 minutes one way from the D&W to Gary’s house.
Questions That Should Be Answered!
Sunday, April 3 1994 @ 2:00 AM was the beginning of daylight savings time.
Was every witness interviewed asked if they were referencing their recollection of time based on standard time or had they set their clocks ahead and based their statements on savings time????
“The first entry on the tape was 4:06 when the cash register was turned on.”
“When Heidi arrived at work she set the time on the cash register”
“The detail tape then showed three zeros and then gave the correct time of 5:55 am.”
Therefore Heidi “started her drawer at five minutes to 6:00 am.”
If Heidi was setting the time on the register because of daylight savings time Then the register should have shown the time as 4:55 when it was turned on.
Why was it at 4:06? AM? PM?
Did the register keep the correct time?
“6:16 am no sale entry on detail tape (Tr. 1515)”
Nine minutes before her boyfriend Bret Law left the store someone hits the no sale button presumably to open the cash drawer. Did anyone balance the money in the drawer with the sales listed on the tape? Was all accounted for? If the answer is yes then what was the reason for the no sale entry?
At 5:45 Bret and Heidi wake up.
At 5:50 the two get in a car and drive to the store.
Are we talking about a couple of average teenagers or is this Wonder Woman and Superman?
Come on, who do you know that wakes up from a sound sleep, gets dressed, brushes their hair, maybe teeth and puts on makeup and is out the door in five minutes?
If you actually looked at the timeline.
At 7:41 stitson arrives, at 7:41 a man cashes out he buys one pack of smokes and two newspapers. At 7:41 Stitson describes the store clerk missing. At 7:42 Richard shows up buys smokes. In the mean time. The 7:41 customer packs his smokes in his car, watches Richard enter and exit the store. Mean while stitson in the store waiting on the clerk, as Richard passes him, cashes out and is never seen by Stitson. As Richard cash out time was 7:42. So the kidnapping didn't take place from 7:41 -7:42 it took place between 7:43/7:44. At 7:45 a cop was on the scene and at 7:45 a van is seen in the town of Mexico ten miles away. By science you'd have to be traveling over 150 mph to make it in two minutes to where the van was spotted in Mexico. The time line is scientifically impossible. How does Heidi, the newspaper customer,Stitson and thibodeau all appear on the scene together. No one saw Gary or Heidi being taken. How do you travel 150 mph, on snowy roads?
Here's another exaggerated example of OCSD, AND DODD.
SOMETIME between 7:30 / 7:45 a.m. umm not. Richard never cashed out until 7:42 a.m. the van was seen three minutes later at 7:45 a.m. we know she had cashed Richard out at 7:42 a.m. So between 7:43/7:45 is the only time that van could have been spotted in Mexico. Two minutes. Use a speed converter online you are up over one hundred and fifty mph, they'd have been traveling to be in Mexico at 7:45 a.m. Dodd did nothing but cross witnesses with other witnesses and confuse everyone with so many times, dates and so many witnesses. He messed up. Four people would have been on the scene. Not just Richard or Stitson. But the man whom bought the two newspapers clearly says he sat in his car for a minute and watched Richard exit the store. So that would have taken place after 7:42 a.m. we can determine these times due to the cash register receipt and the evidence Dodd entered in court on his time line of events. Which none of it adds up. There was no 7:30 a.m.to 7:45 a.m. Richard had not cashed out yet. So if the van was seen between these times. It clearly wasn't Richards van.
April 14, 1994-Bobby interviews Dan Barney "at length" but doesn't take notes or record the interview.?
April 14, 1994-Gary becomes "prime suspect" in briefing which Bobby attended.
May 19, 1994-Bobby receives fax from MA police about Gary's warrant.
May 25, 1994-Gary arrested on the warrant.
Late July 1994-Bobby and Herb interview both inmates.
April 18, 1995-Bobby testifies at a pre-trial (Huntley) hearing that he didn't know Gary was a suspect before his warrant arrest.
May 1, 1995-Fahey files pre-trial Motion, in part, to request sanctions against Bobby for lying during the pre-trial Hearing (Huntley Hearing).
Whoever you are supporting Gary Thibodeau and ripping apart the filing from the DA, outstanding. Some things you posted. I missed. Keep it up. They deserve any humiliation that comes their way. If the community cared about their environment and the sick things the DA and Officers in that county have done. They'd have a better community and safer community for themselves and their families. Instead the majority doesn't stop to smell the roses. If they did. They'd realise they do not smell so grand after all. It takes a big person to not only help, but to spend time paying attention and caring about others. Many have helped. Many still are. I can not wait to see these aholes from Oswego face the lies they've dished out for years. I can only imagine how many other cases they have botched to get a conviction. Dodd was told then you have zero evidence. He will be told again, in supreme. How awful a person they all are for incarceration of an innocent man. Dodd deserves prision, Oakes to be removed from office, sheriff Todd deserves to be a greeter at wal Mart. Petrowski deserves a set of cuffs. Wheeler prison, along with any idiot officer that helped go along with the bull shit in 1994/1995. I pray that they all have repercussions they can not stop. They have put many people through abuse of power. That's exactly what they used to get any convictions through that made zero sense. Gary deserves more than just his freedom. Hopefully with good citizens like you Gary will gain just that.
What is wrong with this timeline found at the end of Oakes’ Statement of Facts filed during the Hearing?
No other customers at the D&W between 6:35am that Brett testified to and a customer, Mr. Wiltse at 7:38am? Why do notes from the Exhibits show there WERE other customers that made purchases between those times?
If Heidi was scheduled from 6am to 3pm, why is 4:06am first reported on the register tape if Heidi didn’t arrive until 4:55am(excluding the hour of DST)?
This timeline Can Not be accurate but was presented at Gary’s trial.
Today's Quote September 1/2016
“Too much agreement kills a chat.”
Oakes and Dodd, including Todd
They are not dealing with a small town attorney. Lisa Peebles is a powerful person. If anything happened to Gary, it does not mean any of this is going to stop. Gary asked Lisa if something did happen to finish this case. To clear his name and to bring Heidi family the truth. So no matter what they do. This is not going away. Gary's case will hit supreme court and national news. It's far from done. It has only just begun. Oakes is simply a coward. He questions the integrity of the sheriff dept and the investigator but stands by the fraudulent case. Then you got Todd who says he had very little to do with this case back then but stands by a case he seems to have had very little to do with. But a whole lotta say on what's factual or untrue. Wouldn't be because his brother helped Dodd prosecute this case. Couldn't be to much pride, based on nothing but lies. Pathetic. Supreme court on Gary's last case. They made it very clear. That just the diary wasn't enough to over turn the conviction. Many cases have been over turned for far less and many have had probes in to the cases and activing investigators, and DA office. Gary will go home. It's just a matter of time.
Today's Quote August 31/2016
“If you don't think too good, don't think too much”
I hope Garys lawyer files a big fat lawsuit on the county when all this is over.
What is the Oswego Sheriff hiding? This case was a giant miscarriage of justice. Let Gary free before he dies in prison.
I think that has been the plan all along. Oaks keeps waiting until the eleventh hour to file documents. He and Dodd hope Thibedeou will die in jail and that will be the end of it all. This whole thing has the same stench as the Tony Pauldine trial and the get-out-of-jail-free deal that was given to Smegelsky.

There was a scratch in the panel of a bath room wall. On the interstate headed towards buffalo. The said Heidi Allen was a rat. Hmmm wonder who was using the interstate towards Canada. Maybe the fellas junking the van. Just a guess. This will all be exposed, in supreme. Jennifer Wescott was given repeated chances to tell the entire truth. I think even her chances are up. Such a believer in God Jennifer was during the hearing. She better start praying.
Dear Todd, Oakes and Dodd
If Dave Stinson was at the D&W from 7:41-7:45 and Richard bought cigarettes at 7:42 plus kidnapped Heidi, why didn't Stinson see the crime?
Never mind, it'll come up in the appeal trial.
Time line at D&W doesn't make sense: From the DA Statement of Facts.
7:41 Stinson arrives at the D&W
7:42 last transaction on register...Richard bought cigs.
Stinson must have entered the store just after 7:42 between 7:42 and 7:45.
7:45 Stinson waves down Deputy Curtis 3 minutes after Richard left. How could he not have seen Richard taking her?
Stinson was there from 7:41 - 7:45 when he flagged down the Deputy.
Richard bought cigs at 7:42 and left presumably with Heidi Allen and Gary kidnapping her but Stinson didn't see him.
So Stinson must have entered the store after Richard left and no Heidi.
Why didn't Stinson see Richard kidnap Heidi, he was there one minute before the last sale at 7:42 which we are told was Richards.
7:45 Mrs. Fabin sees van swerving behind her in Mexico
7:48 Brittany Link sees Richards van at Garys
So that means Stinson didn't see him but he was there.
Richard drove from the D&W at 7:42 to Mexico and then to Gary's all in 3 minutes.
Who was there from 7:42 to 7:45 when Stinson waved down Deputy Curtis?
How could this possibly happen? Why isn't there a time for when Bivens went by the D&W in the DA's Facts? He said he didn't recall telling a deputy that he dove by between 8-8:30 and saw 2 men abducting Heidi....impossible, Stinson said she was gone when he entered the store at about 7:42.
There's something really wrong going on here.

Oswego Firefighter Sentenced
Last night in Minetto Town Court Oswego firefighter and former Minetto
fire chief Joe Smegelsky Jr. received the maximum sentence of $1000 and
two years probation despite arguments from the District Attorney Greg Oaks
and defense lawyer Timothy Kirwan. They had hoped for a lesser sentence
but based on information in Smegelsky's pre sentencing report the maximum
punishment was handed down.
An audit by the State Comptrollers office found that Smegelsky had taken
funds and used a department credit card to purchase a handgun, automotive
parts and assorted items. He also created a fictitious company which sold
fire equipment from undisclosed sources to the Minetto Department.
District Attorney Oaks repeatedly argued for special treatment because
Smegelsky had paid back slightly less than half of what the Comptrollers
office found. However the fact remains he paid nothing back until he was
Joeseph Smegelsky Jr.
Below is a copy of the District Attorney's plea bargain and his
explaination of how they arrived at it.

WHITE RACISIST FIREDEPARTMENT
One week ago we celebrated Martin Luther King Day. I am sure members of
the Ozwego Fire Department seized the opportunity to rack up some double
overtime but that is about the only use they have for non-whites.
Since its inception in 1876 the Oswego Fire Department has been as white
as the driven snow, with respect to the color of its members that is. In
its 139 year history there has never been an Asian, Black or Hispanic
member. If you think this somehow reflects the population then you better
take off your blinders. Oswego’s elected officials and Personnel
Department have long allowed department members to live as far away as
Montour Falls, Watertown, and Groton. There is no way you can cast a net
that far and say, that population is reflected by our department.
In the late 1980’s there was young Black man working for the local cable
company who sometimes frequented the Fire House Tavern as did members of
the OFD. The firefighters exam had been announced and he was asking some
of the OFD members if they thought he had a chance of getting in. He
received all kinds of encouragement while he was there but after he left I
overheard two of the Heroes chuckling and say no way they were going to
let him in the department. “We have Guinias and Polocks and that is as
integrated as we are going to get.” I do not know if the man ever took the
test but the fact is that department remains as segregated as the day it
was formed. They are allowed to operate as their own little fiefdom
picking and choosing their own white membership and no one has the balls
to put a stop to it.
The next time our Senators and Congressmen come around for their photo ops
with our Hero Department we should all point out to the national media how
they are supporting a racist organization. Perhaps we should ask the NAACP
how this has been overlooked by their organization for so long.

Oswego's finest screwing the taxpayers once again spotted at Dicks
Sporting Goods in Great Northern Mall on 6/22/14.....didn't know they sold
food there....or were they perhaps getting a new set up clubs at our
expense??? Would still like to see the tab for the turning stone
"conference" they went to....a whole weekend at the turning stone???
meals, rooms, drinks, etc???? The worst part is it will never change. No
matter who is mayor they will always be controlled by the f.d. and no one
will run against our current council members. Oswego has become homeowners
to few (I stand corrected good homeowners) and is a city full of renters.
That was probably just Smegelsky picking up some
guns. They should be checking the video at Dicks to see who was with him.
That hero should be arrested too.
People like that are paranpiod about someone else stealing what they just
stole so naturally he would need to get a gun to protect all his or should
I say our stuff.
Yes, they are not as correct as they should be as I left off the 2
additional firemen that go out on Ambulance #2 and many of the other
expenses that can be attributed to the ambulance service . In reality here
is a $300,000 loss each year without he expense of a new ambulance. The
point is, we will never make a profit on this service; have a fully
qualified ambulance located in Oswego (Menter) that can handle all
emergencies; could cut 15 men from the department with all their benefits
and return $2,000,000 to the taxpayers; while cutting the long term
obligation of retirement and the padding of such for years to come.
Unfortunately, the obtuse Mayor, Council, and most of all ,Fire Chief,
have another agenda and it is not in the best interest of he taxpayers.
McCrobie probably was, at one time, a good fireman, but as a chief and
leader lacks in total credibility. The way overtime is handed out only
shows that he is helping to bump up he retirement of the soon to retire
firemen by thousands of taxpayers dollars. There is a belief that hey will
all get their turn is the OT merry-go-round, but the fact is, the tier 6
firemen will never see that benefit. The new anti padding law passed and
signed by he governor will not allow tier 6 employees to add any more than
$15,000 to their retirement benefits, and they will now have to go for the
last 5 years instead of 3. If I were a tier 6, I would tell the tier 5's
to stick their $50.00 they pay for the OT and start taking their share of
the OT, because it will all be ending when all the tier 5's retire.
Minetto Fire Chief
I asked a few weeks ago if anybody knew what was going on with Minetto's
Fire Chief well here you go.
Stole $20,000 from the fire department. I'm going to guess he possibly
stole more since he's being held with no bail. Coinsedently though he just
bought a piece of property behind his own for $20,000. Don't believe me?
Here's the property taxes. Coincident? You should take a drive by his
property to check it out. Constantly cars & trucks are being 'stored'
there and then disappear. Camper was there for a whole summer now that's
gone. I even seen the Minetto's fire truck pull up to his vacant property
hook on a utility trailer with all the fireman in it and take off. Now
Minetto Fire Dept has plenty of property to store at their station. Why
would they use his? I offend wondered why a property owner who only has
1/4 acre of grass need a 0 point turn lawn mower? Probably the fire
