Today's Quote October 24-26/21

 Half of the harm that is done in this world is due to people who want to feel important.

They don't mean to do harm. But the harm does not interest them.
T. S. Eliot

Doesn't surprise me that P Martin would defend a couple of drunks being that's exactly what she is to her core. She's a drunk living off her husband's hard work. Just like Cooney is living off his moms money.
What 50 year old i'm using that term loosely "man" quits his job to go back home to party for 6 months? i don't care what him and his merry band of HOGS and HO's does for the community 1 day a year the rest of the year him, his drunken friends and disgusting father drink and drive. Anyone of them could kill a child he claims to care so much about having a Christmas.
Anything this man child does is only to inflate his ego. His favorite word is ME ME ME! Everyone look at ME! I did this, i did that, i bought my nephews this or took them here. And there will be video proof of his generosity don't you worry. The last person my kids would look up to is an obese unemployed lazy egotistical immature drunk who is stuck in 1984.
There's a reason Toys for Tots is no longer affiliated with Tunes for Tots . Could it be Cooney couldn't handle someone else being ahead of him ? That EGO!
I can't believe the city and the mayor would work with the likes of him for a children's event. Maybe that's how him, his father and friends get away with all they do... hmmm

Re: Oswego County Legislature Geniuses!
Whoever wrote the post calling the Oswego County Legislature geniuses sure isn't one. They didn't pass a local law; it's what's called a memorializing resolution. All it means is that they are on the record opposing something, in this case, vaccine mandates. They might send a copy of the resolution to the governor's office, but other than that, it's just a formality to let the public know they oppose something. There's nothing illegal about it. They do it a lot, and it's meaningless other than to let them perform for the camera. If it was a local law, there would have been a public hearing.

Re: Oswego County Legislature Geniuses!
There's nothing illegal about the resolution. It's symbolizing, that is all.

You are wrong! Herd immunity
There is no such thing as herd immunity.
n the 1950s we were all put into one house whenever some kids got measles, chicken pox etc.
This makes you immune to the sickness.

Does it work with COvid-19? Don't know. But our childhood illness very rarely killed any child...so there lies the danger with covid-19.

Get vaxed and quit listening to republicans that preach the freedom thing so they get your vote....you may die from it.

Oct. 24-26/21

Who's the genius?
"It always amazes me that there are people that are willing to show their lack of knowledge publicly for all to see."
You sure did show your lack of knowledge!! The legislators passed a non-binding resolution to let their constituents know how they stand on vaccine mandates. In NYS it's referred to as a memorializing resolution that they bring to the floor so they can open discussion and debate and listen to themselves talk. After that, the resolution is nothing more than a$$ wipe.

Oct. 24-26/21

Why can't we all agree to disagree. There is ABSOLUTELY no reason for people to be so repugnant. Seriously, you people are abhorrent! From reading this thread the vaccinated are the ones condemning. Noone should be wishing harm to others. That is the problem, not individuals making their own decisions. Everyone has the right to inform themselves, on their own intimate medical choices. If the people who are vaccinated are confident in their decisions; then why does another person's natural immunity threaten them? If you are confident in your vaccine, then why should another not be confident in their own body's ability to create natural Antibodies? Why must people be so hateful and divisive?

NY Healthcare workers currently have a permanent injunction against the mandate. Why do you think that is? Nationally, these mandates are being legally challenged for a number of reasons. In the Home Rule that was mentioned, the Constitution must be upheld first.

As a Healthcare worker, I've taken an oath to protect my patient's rights. I would fight tirelessly to defend each individual's personal beliefs. My body is a temple according to my beliefs. Fortunately, I have sovereignty over my body. Noone gets to tell me what I have to do with my own body. Haven't you people heard of the Nuremberg code? The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential.


"Why life jackets should be mandatory" by JP Spears


"Even if vaccinating the naturally immune may improve immunity (which robust studies of millions of people show is not true, as detailed in our reply), it does not change the fact that natural immunity, alone, is better than vaccine immunity."



I'm putting this out there for intelligent humans to do their own research. There's always opposing viewpoints. Just because people disagree; that is no reason to be so vicious and aggressive. Wishing everyone their own inner peace, health, and insight.


Oct. 24-26/21


"opposing viewpoints" Is that the new name for alternative facts?


Back in 2015, before Facebook, before Twitter I put an end to those we now call Trolls and Trumptards as well as the lies, half-truths and bullshit they were trying to spread using this site. For the most part intelligent humans can see through it all but sometimes it comes wrapped with just enough truth to cloud their judgment and fool them.


You think my comments have been vile, vicious, aggressive, nasty and hateful. You ain't seen nothing yet honey. In a perfect world Trump and all his followers would lined up in front of a wall and shot but the world is not perfect so I'm putting my faith in God and Covid 19.


Meanwhile please take your conspiracy theories, junk science and viewpoints somewhere else. You are all done here.

Accidents or suicides it gets their job done. They beat Wayne Priest to death. Those are the facts. If the county doesn't like it, well that's just too bad. Many many people know this. Thank Barney and his men for many strange occurrences. Barney has a direct issue with this post. To bad you have the rest of your ignorant, criminal life to get over it. Barney you and your boys want to line up for a lie detector. I bet you wont. I'm daring you Barney to walk in and clear your name with one test. I'll pay for it both on Priests death and that of Heidi Allen. I will guarantee you. You dont have the balls to.

Scriba Voters
To All Scriba Voters:
I would like to inform you on how the Town Supervisor and the board has cost us taxpayers $42,000 in unnecessary spending. The Town Supervisor and the board members received a quite for a new snowplow and equipment to be put on the agenda for the March meeting and it was never placed on that agenda. The board finally approved this truck and equipment at the October meeting at an increase of nearly $42,000 from the initial quote that was handed into the Town Supervisor and the board members in the spring.
What kind of leadership does this town have? Better yet look at the lack of leadership in the Town of Scriba!

On election day vote for anybody but the assholes that are in office other than the very few who are decent human beings

Barrington Declaration
What a pompous display of ignorance. You talk about stupidity with the “bait and switch” and the other 860,000 morons that seek conformational bias toward medical science. You talk about freedoms but condemn people who do choose the vaccine over your moronic baseless self-proclaimed keen insight. Please hurry up and die. – Dr. Tenpenny

Vaccines- please post!
What vile nasty hatefulness. Why is it that people feel the need to wish a slow and painful death to others. I'm appalled, that seemingly intelligent individuals can exude such disdain for others.
Most people are quite capable of making their own independent decisions. Every individual should be allowed the freedom to privately decide their own personal life.
If the vaccinated feel that the unvaccinated are the problem, then it shows that they do not have confidence in their own choices.
As in legalities, each side can argue their position, based from individual perception.
Obviously, there is no need to give any opposing points to the discussion. When people resort to insults and name calling; then they have moved away from the debate. Instead, they are just being verbally abusive and counter-productive. It speaks to their own ignorance.

Oswego County Legislature Geniuses!
It always amazes me that there are people that are willing to show their lack of knowledge publicly for all to see. Ed did a great job correcting the misinformation that the latest Trumptard tried to pass on as fact. I'm sure he believes that Trump won the election. Hopefully this individual will follow the stupid and illigeal resolution that was passed by the 23 stuip assholes that call themselves Legislators.
There is also the fact that a local government can not overrule ANY State or Federal laws. I am shocked that County Attorney Mitchell allowed this resolution to even make it to the floor. It is illegal and should never have been allowed on the floo, let alone voted on!!!
(Subdivision 1 of Section 11 of the Municipal Home Rule Law contains specific restrictions on the power to adopt local laws. It expressly provides that a local government shall not be deemed authorized to adopt a local law which supersedes a State statute relating to the subjects set forth therein)
This resolution should be rescinded.
I also agree with Ed; if you don't want to get vaccinated it is fine with us, get covid and die, we don't care, but stop spreading you stuip untrue, unfactual opinions while you are still alive.

Thank you to the Ant Vaxer's
l want to thank all those Anti Vaxer's who are willing to die from Covid-19, for their contribution in funding the covid-19 injections. Think about Trumptards! Your tax dollars are funding the free Covid-19 shots that my family and all the other families that received this free injection. YEP, you paid for it and are dying, and your tax dollars are keeping us alive and well.
You are very brave people, so thank you very much for your generous contribution

Today's Quote October 22/21

 The reward for work well done is the opportunity to do more.
Jonas Salk

'Oswego legislature genius' rebuttal

You are incorrect!

To whomever stated that Oswego county legislators are not genius. The local legislators should be congratulated.

First of all, you are incorrect on many points. The Oswego County Legislature correctly asserted that vaccines should NOT be mandated. A huge thanks to them for advocating for individual rights.
There is no such thing as herd immunity. We are not livestock. But yet we are medically milked for big pharma profit. The vaccine mandate is not based in science, because science questions everything without censorship. Currently science is being bought and controlled. Nearly all research on COVID is directly funded through the NIH. This leads to the financial strings of Fauci's 'mockingbird' puppets. All vaccines are still under emergency use authorization!

Please review the Barrington Declaration. It is quoted "As infectious disease epidemiologists and public health scientists we have grave concerns about the damaging physical and mental health impacts of the prevailing COVID-19 policies, and recommend an approach we call Focused Protection." with over 860,000 signatures this is completely relevant.

Furthermore, Pfizer Comirnaty is not available in the United States.
Stupidity is falling for the bait and switch of Pfizer. People think they are taking the FDA approved vaccine, when Comrinaty is not available in the United States.

Dr. Robert Malone who is the inventor of the MRNA and DNA therapies is advising to not take these vaccines.

Please inform yourselves of the options available.

Oct. 22/21


COMIRNATY the brand name for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine IS AVAILABLE IN THE US.

Most drugs are developed under one name, which is usually unpronounceable then marketed under another. Remdesivir was the first or one of the first therapeutic agents used for the treatment of coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19). It was then marketed under the name VEKLURY. Same drug just a development name and a marketing name.

Pfizer developed a vaccine, Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine, which received (EUA)Emergency Use Authorization from the FDA. In August 2021 the FDA approved it for use in people 16 years old and older. It is now available to that group of the population under the name COMIRNATY.

However " The vaccine also continues to be available, under emergency use authorization (EUA), including for individuals 12 through 15 years of age " for this subset of the population it is given as" Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine". TWO DIFFERENT NAMES ONLY ONE VACCINE!

Some moron on Facebook jumped on the two different names and voilà the right wing conspiracy theorists were off and running like the rabid dogs they are.

I hold this out there for those who are capable of independent thought processes while still hoping that the Kool Aid drinking rabid dogs will hold to their beliefs and die a prolonged death from the plague they have spread.

FDA Approves First COVID-19 Vaccine

Fact check: Pfizer's FDA-approved vaccine is available in US

Dr. Robert Malone is a disgruntled wacko who did some early experiments and co authored two papers on the subject of MRNA and DNA therapies. He is the only one in the field of MRNA and DNA therapies who recognises himself as the inventor of such therapies. I have no doubt that further investigation would reveal Dr. Malone also pioneered the reanimation of dead tissue while studying at the University of Transylvania.



Herd Immunity For Covid 19


Oct. 22/21

At October's New Haven planning board meeting, the lack of training was obvious.
With the exception of a few people, that planning board is quite uninformed. First of all, most of the members have no idea how to facilitate a motion. (read Robert's Rules of Order). Even long time members of this board are not State Environmental Quality Review (SEQR or SEQRA) trained. The full comprehension, and proper application of those regulations are paramount to the decision making process of a planning board. Why is that training not required prior to being allowed to vote on a matter?

If a planning board member doesn't even understand basic parliamentary procedures, doesn't have a solid understanding of SEQR, and does not comprehend the gravity of their uninformed decisions; then they should not be allowed to decide important public business.

This town (and I'm sure many others) really do not understand proper procedure on how to enter into an executive session.It seems that if people are confident with their position on a certain subject; then they should be proud to discuss the matter openly in public. A motion to enter into executive session must sufficiently detail, to all in attendance; whether the issue may properly be discussed in private. It is required that any motion to enter into the executive session describe with some detail the nature of the proposed discussion. For example, the mere possibility of potential/possible/pending litigation is not sufficient reason to enter into executive session.

Please be advised of new open meeting requirements signed into law yesterday. Documents that are being discussed at public meetings, must be posted online 24 hours in advance of the meeting. This includes all documents, not just the information some deem relevant. If it's being used to determine how to proceed with an action, then it must be disclosed and posted prior to the meeting.
Senator Anna M. Kaplan said, "Public participation in open meetings is a cornerstone of our democracy and a vital opportunity for citizens to have their concerns heard and addressed by their representatives.

Oswego County Legislature Geniuses!
By opposing vaccine mandates, the Legislature has put Stupidity over science, Politics over people and Ego over everyone else. Without mandates there will never be herd immunity and new and more unpleasant variants will continue to proliferate, as they are continuing to do across the world.
You folks would have been REAL popular during the Plague years.
As to your idiotic rants of "Personal Freedom!", "We'reAmericans!", well , study George Washington who required his troops to be vaccinated against Smallpox.
Your personal freedom does not include the "right " to infect others, and that's what you are guaranteeing with your moronic opposition to mandates.

Scriba Tax Payers
It should be brought to your attention how the Town of Scriba Board is trying to force a sewer system on the residents of County Route 1 and County Route 1A. Under the watchful eye of CONFLICT Kevin and Jim Oldenberg they have rigged the election for this vote on the sewer district. Let me explain: The district will consist of County Routes 1 & 1A and the housing developments off of City Line Road and County Route 4. Lets not not forget the Nuclear Plants that have their own treatment plant are pushing for this district. The Sithe Plant and Novelis will also be in this district. Now I say this is a rigged vote because none of the waterfront beaches are included in this vote. As the numbers stand now the people on County Route 1 & 1A don't have enough votes without all participants (beaches) to win the rigged votes over the people in the housing developments that the town claims their bills will drop by a couple hundred dollars. Now with that being said, there are 2 board members that will gain FINANCIALLY by this district being formed; Your Town Supervisor James Oldenburg and Deputy Town Supervisor Joseph Pasco. Being elected officials, if they have any moral compass they will recuse themselves from said vote. I encourage all voters in Scriba to attend the monthly board meeting on October 20th at 6:30 pm at the Scriba Municipal Building.


To the a$$hole who came to Mike Coon's defense: he was driving while intoxicated......with the grace of god something stopped that car just short of crashing into the home on the corner (yellow house)....I witnessed the whole thing so doesn't matter what he does for his community he was shitfaced....he made a bad choice, which 90% of this community does because it seems that all anyone does anymore is drink. You go golfing you drink then drive. You got out to eat you drink and drive. Can anyone do anything without booze?????? He was shitting his pants right on his phone trying to get someone to help him out....SO GLAD no one did....It was my belief that from witnessing this display that he was thinking about bolting....Pillar of the community my ass.
Try living over here in this area.My next door neighbor has had four accidents right in her driveway alone because she is always plastered, she and her boyfriend who murdered his kid. This intersection has become the tap n go corner.....God forbid anyone actually stop for the STOP sign. There have been more accidents here since they took out the light and the traffic on this street is ten fold what it used to be....Many "nighttime" accidents don't even get reported. Yet they can put a light over on west first street by the post office for what??????? Put the effin light back and force these assholes to stop....It will take a death for that to happen. And where are the cops????? Oswego is a free for all for drivers...the city could make a ton of money ticketing those that are above and beyond any traffic rules....I have lived over in this area for 30+ years and as I stated the traffic has increased ten fold. Compound that with all the truck traffic...they are not allowed to go beyond 10th street on Utica they should not be coming down this hill. For the last two years it has been 100's of dump trucks hauling (Malone) back and forth from all the construction going on around town. Right now they are hauling to and from the new construction on the Hall Road to somewhere in Minetto. It starts at 530 am and goes to 5 pm. THIS SHOULD NOT BE A TRUCK ROUTE. Broadwell managed to get the trucks out of his little stretch of road in front of all his businesses. This is a residential area over here and what used to be just an occasional truck has become non-stop all day...when they did the field at the High School they hauled all that dirt (untarped) past our homes. We have children and grandchildren and they are NOT allowed to go outside due to the heavy traffic. I have had many vehicles end up just short of my living room window in the winter coming down this hill.. In closing I hope when Coon goes to all his classes for his DWI they won't care either about what he "does for this community" he broke the law and got caught. And I pray to God everyday that the powers that be in this city get busted for all their underhanded shenanigans they think they are getting away with. I agree with the previous post on here about our so called alderman. USELESS. He has not done ONE thing for this ward. NOT ONE.

Friends Who Care
I don't know who the subjects of your post are, but it surely tells me a lot about who YOU are --- and it has nothing to do with "concern" or being a "friend." So, you and others were afraid to tell this couple that they had put on weight and should eat and drink less. Instead, you chose to publicly humiliate them. If you really felt it was your business, did you ever think maybe an anonymous letter/note sent just to them would be better than public humiliation. I think something else is going on here and it doesn't have anything to do with concern or friendship. A truly concerned friend would never be so cruel.

Re:Mike Coon
I don’t know who it is that sent the awful email regarding Mike Coon and Dink but I certainly would like to. Whoever you are, I guess you’ve never made a mistake EVER??? Maybe not?? Considering you must never leave the confines of the rock you obviously live under. You’re right about one thing, Mike may not live in Oswego but he does more for the community and the kids of this town than anyone I know. No, he doesn’t do everything himself, he has a team. But he does the majority of it himself. If it weren’t for all the things Mike Coon has done for the City of Oswego over the years, a lot of these kids would be shit out of luck come Christmas time, every year. Maybe you should grow a set, and try to get that big ass chip on your shoulder removed, maybe you should volunteer your services to the cause too, considering you must think you’re a Saint? And again, I would love to know who you are? If you’re not afraid to give up your name.
And yes…I’m well aware the administration of this site promotes anonymity, but it’s up to the author whether or not to reveal themselves, right??

 But he that dares not grasp the thorn Should never crave the rose.
Anne Bronte


The Kells Conundrum
Much the same as Dick Bateman the source of Kells bank roll was his wife. While she has not openly demonstrated her discontent with his peccadilloes with subordinates at the DPW or tennants in his rental properties she has recently reminded him that it was her money that financed his foray into the slumlord business. With her being in that position of power he was apprised of the fact that a divorce proceeding would leave him penniless. Being the dutiful husband that we all know he is Tommy has decided it would be in his best interest to liquidate his assets and follow her to Florida like a good little hubby.

At this point one might ask who will take over the secret party club in the basement of the old #2 school on Mitchell Street or the other one at the former Kelly Square.

Baby Barlow and Ignorant Council have Destroyed Oswego’s Way of Life
It is amazing that the Barlow Administration and the Comedy Council have admitted that their actions regarding the destruction to the way of life in our city are due to governmental ignorance and local greed.

On the front page of the local joke of a paper they finally printed a portion of the truth that the City of Oswego is about to encounter. "City approves $120,000 for increased police presence" with a quote from Baby Barlow himself..." We heard a lot of complaints come in where people think there's an increase in homeless people in the parks and downtown and the fact is " THERE IS".

Is it possible that they finally understand that this city is being overrun with homeless, druggies, and undesirables; just wait until they open two more major low-cost apartment buildings that will bring in another 200 or more families into The City of Oswego. We will need more than an additional $120,000 to maintain the order in this city and we might just see the doubling of the police department.

This is the result of taking state grants and using the money to build undesirable low-cost facilities in a city that has too many of them already. Right now, there are six (6) low cost welfare facilities in Oswego and Barlow and his band of followers have just added 2 more major low cost welfare facilities for a total of (8). Just keep in mind, these are tax exempt and you will pick up the additional cost in your property and school taxes to take care of these people. This is being hidden through a higher assessed value of the city,but keeping the rate per $1000 assessed at $15.39 the same, but raising your assessed value to pay for the tax exempt properties being built.

It was also reported that Farnham has also received a federal grant for $125,000 for drug prevention. Yes they are also going to have to increase their facility to take care of the city's druggies which they have concluded will increase due to these new low cost welfare units that are to open very soon. This grant is for 5 years and will come to a total of $625,000 additional money for them due to the anticipated increase of drug abuse facing the city of Oswego due to the actions of your ignorant city government. So the next time you see one of your elected city officials, thank them for destroying our way of life and bringing in the welfare and druggie population. Don't be surprised to see the crime rate to include shootings on the increase

 The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience,

but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Conflict Kevin strikes again
In a recent article about New Haven's legal battles, Conflict Kevin misquotes the details of the Town's anti-SLAPP response. In fact, Mr. Conflict doesn't even mention the SLAPP. Maybe someone should explain it to him.

Conflict Kevin is actually quoted as saying "We just thought that if there's going to be a lawsuit by any of the neighbors, we wanted to have a lawsuit in as well to kind of level the playing field." So Circle T, filed their 78 only to 'level the playing field'!?!? This is not a game Kevin! Not only do the citizens have to file a 78 to uphold local laws, they have to defend themselves from vexatious litigation. DISGUSTING! Everyone is aware that certain 'players' of this so-called game, will lie and cheat to 'win'.

Kevin Conflict has the audacity to claim that Circle T's vexatious lawsuit is not hurting the town. Seriously!?!? How much money have the taxpayers spent on legal fees? How much time have local officials wasted by having to respond to litigation to chill disfavorable speech? Mr. Conflict further states that Circle T will continue to challenge the process. Circle T got their way. They are operating an 'illegal' unenclosed concrete batch plant. Circle T is NOT operating under its own agreed conditions of operation. These people have no regard for the law, and will continue to get away with whatever they can.

Good luck Kevin! It seems to be true that Mr. Caraccioli doesn't like to be in front of an actual judge. If he was so confident in his assertions, then why didn't he represent his clients with their 78? Once more, This man is a pitiful excuse for an attorney.

PS.... It is well known that Pam and Kevin Caraccioli are divorced. Kevin actually lives with the woman he cheated on his wife with, who was their babysitter at the time.

Oct 7-8/21

The Town of New Haven attorney filed an anti-SLAPP motion against Circle T/ Caraccoli.
Caraccioli is so low he is attempting to chill the speech of private citizens who are opposing his clients. Where are the local reporters on this issue? Seems like local papers have certain conflicts as well. Local stories have been quite one sided and almost seem to be written by Conflict Kevin himself.

How are these people allowed to run amuck? He has more conflicts of interest than one could possibly imagine. He is an over confident, inexperienced, duplicitous attorney. It's pretty amusing that Mr Caraccioli presented legally baseless arguments, and was directly called out by the town attorney. What he did was disgraceful. Again, no moral compass!

Conflict Kevin works for the city of Oswego, the town of Oswego, town of Scriba, Oswego county IDA, as well as his private clients ( who are receiving monies through the IDA). He previously represented the town of New Haven. Now he comes in representing Circle T and their nefarious band of thugs against the Town of New Haven.

Additionally, the town Board of New Haven is improperly appointing people during executive sessions. The current acting deputy supervisor is uninformed of the law. He thinks he can bully his way around town. The town board appointed an alternate planning board member to cover the conflict of interest of another planning board member. (This person had to recuse because their daughter is living with Conflict Kevin.) Interestingly, the newly appointed alternate planning board member's first vote was for the "improper" SEQR determination that is in question. This same alternate planning board member works for the Oswego county DPW (Donovan). Oswego City DPW housed Circle T trucks via private contract. (Most likely written up by Conflict Kevin).

A certain acting Deputy Supervisor (Barney) seems to have his dirty hands in all of this. This is the same person that people are still afraid of in relation to the disappearance of Heidi Allen. ("Scrapped")

"Conflict Kevin"
You have just barely scratched the surface on the conflicts this excuse of a make-believe lawyer. He is known around the county as "Conflict Kevin" because of the illegal conflict deals he has been involved with and the asses he has kissed along the way with the Republican politicians in Oswego Town, Scriba, and the City of Oswego.These people should be ashamed of themself and I don't know how they can show their faces around the county, knowing how they allowed this inadequate individual to work in these governments.

First of all, he is totally ignorant of the legal system and when he took the BAR Exam it took him (3) times to pass it. As he has demonstrated so many times, he doesn't dare represent anybody in a real court of law. How many times has the city had to hire Outside Counsel because "Conflict Kevin" has NO knowledge how to represent a client in front of A REAL JUDGE. No he only will sit at the council meeting in Oswego, or the Town of Oswego or Scriba and give outlandish opinions on issues, which he is usually incorrect on. When he took over as the attorney for Scriba it was quoted very loudly that when the old attorney was asked a legal question, he would give the answer right there, but "Conflict Kevin" would say ," I'll have to look that up and get back to you later. This is not a rumor, this is Fact.

As far as his Law firm, this was also in a major conflict and he was forced by the NYS BAR Assoc. to change the name of his firm from Caraccioli Associates, to Caraccioli Law Firm. You see, under the NYS BAR Ethics 931, A law firm can only call themselves XXX and Associates if they have at least three (3) lawyers working at the firm and Kevin only has himself and a paralegal working there. Opinion 931 states " A solo practitioner whose law firm employs no other lawyers, but does employ a paralegal, may not ethically use the name "Caraccioli and Associates" because that would risk misleading the public as to the number of lawyers at the firm. He was forced to change his sign on his building on East 7th street to Caraccioli Law Firm , but has not changed the internet name and still uses Caraccioli and Associates. Guess he thought nobody would notice

Kevin C. Caraccioli, Esq
Thank you for your time.
Is anyone aware of that Mr. Caraccioli was recently hit with a SLAPP (Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation)? These are actions in which wealthy land developers might seek to file vexatious libel claims against persons or entities speaking out regarding their land use applications before government agencies (see 600 W. 115* St. Corn. v. Von Gutfeld, 80 N.Y.2d 130 (1992) [n.1]). The purpose and intent of the anti-SLAPP legislation is to protect free speech and assembly.
Mr. Caraccioli has been accused of castigating members of a local board. Mr. Caraccioli has many conflict of interests. He has no moral compass at all. His only motivation is greed.

They are TRACY , BECKY and YOUR ATTORNEY CARACOLE. without them he would know NOTHING. NOW there are two that I want to say to. Tracy you are a good secretary but that is what you are a secretary. Not a town board member so I would say PLEASE just be what you are. Rebeca you are a good Town clerk but again that’s what you are is A TOWN CLERK. QUIT TELLING THE GATEKEEPER what to do and making His Decisions for him. Now CARACOLE Sir you are the town attorney and the the attorney for the city of Oswego and I was told one of the towns other than Scriba. Do you think you could be just the attorney and nothing else. Personally I think you should be just one for whoever you choose but if this is not a conflict of interest, what is?? Its always sometime too late after the vote. KELLY LAGOE SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE SUPERVISOR. SHE WOULD LOOK AFTER YOUR MONEY AND NOT SPEND IT ON THINGS NOT NEEDED. NOW IN THE END I want you to know who I'am so many people put their post on here with no name I’m CHARLES O HEWITT SR I lived In the town for over fifty years so please don’t say I have no right to say anything, cause I do.

Today's Quote September 26/21

 A lie with a purpose is one of the worst kind, and the most profitable.
Finley Peter Dunne


Oswego Mayor William Barlow filed a frivolous lawsuit against the Oswego Port Authority, (Waste of tax payers monies.)

Ruling of Judge Gilbert

Judge Gilbert's ruling also prevents the Port Authority from continuing construction or demolishing the building until they conduct a full and complete SEQRA review.

*New York State Supreme Court Justice Gregory R. Gilbert issued a decision today to annul the motion. (Motion filed by the city to stop the port construction has been removed.) Nothing changed, except to delay construction of the building.

"Having a Supreme Court judge agree with this obvious concern is satisfying," said Oswego City Attorney Kevin Caraccioli. "I commend our legal team for developing a strong case in defense of the City of Oswego, its residents, businesses, and guests who identify the significance of the lighthouse in our harbor and stopped this clear overreach of public authority." (City has no authority over what the port does.)

Barlow! You and Caraccioli, haven't won anything! The port just has to review the New York State Environmental Quality Review (SEQR) There is no time limit to do this. The building is still standing!

Note: Port Authority officials also said that the decision in the case concludes that they are not bound by City or local laws.

"We are pleased that the court confirmed the Port's autonomy as a NY State entity and is not bound by City laws or ordinances," said Port of Oswego Authority Executive Director William Scriber.

*How much did this frivolous lawsuit filed by Barlow and Oswego City Attorney Kevin Caraccioli cost the tax payers of Oswego, NY?

The next block bumps everywhere, and then the POT holes at the intersection that are getting worse and also the manhole (which the dpw has no clue) , and now we are at Utica st. From there to Bunner st you drive on the SOUTH side of the st as the side heading North is all potholes , so apparently no one with the right name lives on EAST 7TH ST !!!!!!

GOSICK; most unqualified Mayor Oswego EVER had
I could go on for 5 pages what a scum bag mayor Gosick was and still is. A couple highlights of his illustrious tenure.
1 Hired his unqualified family into city hall.
2 Spent over $17,000,000 of the reserve fund trying to balance a budget he knew absolutely nothing about.
3 Hired his girlfriend to work in city hall.
4 Gave the same girlfriend ,who did not have the time in the job to be qualified for early retirement, a $10,000 early retirement check.
5 After she (retired?) he gave her the use of the "Mayor's Car" to drive back and forth to Syracuse for transportation to her new job. Also gave her a city "master charge card" to purchase the gasoline for the car.
6 Hired Bateman as DPW Commission who tried to run his own little business out of the DPW garage before he was caught by an honest person and forced his little scheme to be shutdown.
7 Gosick is still classified as a "LEVEL 2 SEX OFENDER"!
Appeals Court: Gosek Remains Level 2 Sex Offender

But without dragging up bimbos drugs and by the way anyone that knows John Gosek cel he said he drinks tequila and beer and was never into drugs ever and there's a Lotta great sex that fucked up girls are capable of providing the point is taxes were low he was frugal and he clearly pissed off the same person and people that put him there who put in our present mayor isn't that a coincidence
Now how is he a bad boy and this guy is such a good boy he didn't roll over give him a paw play dead fetch And sick em!

Mistakes are going to happen and this is not the first time something like this has occurred.
Hell, artillery rounds falling short or over-shot, killed a lot of Vietnamese citizens. Helicopter M-60 's shooting up a hootch where a Viet Cong ran into to get to a tunnel killed a lot of citizens, napalm dropping on a target that took out some villages was a mistake, but it is still all collateral damage. Nobody likes to see it happen to any nation's citizens, or on our own military in the field. Mistakes will continue to be made, as long as we are fighting in combat zones, and will continue to be expected. We just have to expect it and hope less of it will happen.

Gosuck Math
GosuBread was a nickel a loaf in the twenties, gas was 35 cents in the sixties, could go on and on how much things cost in the past, even a budget that was put in place 20 years ago. My math is to compare apples to apples, not a generational divide between comparisons. I’m sure Walt’s budget was not even close to Johnny angel’s budget if you want to compare amounts. However, that really wouldn’t be fair, would it? Don’t forget the surplus he pissed away to subsidize his “frugal” budget. I agree that he surrounded himself with degenerates, but as far as who was worse, now you’re talking about a real battle of the Titans. You praise his firing of a police chief that hated bars only to replace her with none other than Bill Ruggio. In case you forgot he was arrested in October 2005 after an FBI raid uncovered three stolen snowmobiles and an all-terrain vehicle on his property. You should know one important distinction; that being a womanizer is a “perception”, being a class two sex offender is criminal act and a fact in law. He would have been a class one offender but got a lighter sentence because he tipped off the FBI to possible corruption involving public officials.(dubious real estate assessments) Thank God that the girls he was set up with were fictitious and not another notch on his belt. Would you feel more at ease if those two girls were real? I understand your zeal for a manageable budget that won’t run everyone out of town but more importantly it should be the fairness to the taxpayers that are shouldering the burden. Pilot deals with the hotels, waterpark, unfair assessment for certain landlords is the real problem. John Gosek didn’t care about anything other than being a predator plain and simple. He left the city in the hands of what you call his manipulators without regard. If anything good came out of his tenure it was by accident. Bottom line: John Gosek is a punk and embarrassment to the city and the citizens of Oswego. – H. W.ck Math

People are moving out of here as they are sick of driving a hour to get to work, they could care less about his waterfront. Drive around the city and see all the houses for sale its scary, and when he brings in his next group of hudders and cast offs its gonna get worse , their are very few taxpayers each and every year, and taxes will go up , so listen to the comedy council praise what a great job he is doing , THEY ARE ALL ABOUT THEMSELVES !!!!!!!

He lowered taxes to near 27 mil /year
City budget
Now its 52 mil plus
Tell me how in your math this doesnt equal taxpayers paying less$?
And gosek was set up by far worse degenerates that you perceive him to be
He is a womanizer and so what.
The nonexistant girls he was willing to engage with while drunk was a set up
He met most women in bars so if the bars were legit the people were 21 and over!
Gosek canned paul nolan
Total quality management
A former police chief that hated bars
And was for smaller government
He was frugal with public funds
Im not vouching for his character but fiscally wise the most thrifty mayor since lazarek

Attack on the Capital
If these asshole Trump F*%K's attack the Capital this Sat again, it is time for the Capital Police and the Washington Police and any other agency that is available to "OPEN FIRE". Shoot to kill and cover the Capitol steps with their blood. Set up the M-60's with sandbag bunkers, have every widow set up with sharp shooters with M-14's, M-16's; have M-79's ready, Claymore Mines, and yes, helicopters with Miniguns. No more being overrun by a bunch of assholes. Time to let them know that they can have a peaceful demonstration, and if they want to attack the capitol again, be prepared for the consequences.This is our democracy and a bunch of red neck, ignorant, Trump shitheads, are not going to destroy our government.

Please post
I have followed this web site and read posts for many years. This is my first time submitting an opinion, it is reference to someone's post criticizing the Oswego High School athletic director, Rhonda Bullard. I have been a registered high school sports official for 38 years and have dealt with a very large number of high school athletic directors throughout Central New York, including Oswego Athletic Directors Mr. Joe Wilbur and Mr. Ted Kerley. I have found Rhonda Bullard to be extremely professional, helpful, courteous and efficient. In my opinion, she represents Oswego in a very positive way, much like Mr. Wilbur and Mr. Kerley did. My opinion is that she is a valuable asset to the Oswego community. Sincerely, David Munger, Fulton.

Jon GoZak
Oh Yea, John Gosek did a great job of budgeting and pissing away the city’s reserve. Of course his moral standing within the community is nonpareil. That’s just what this city needs, Gosuck and his wonderful administration back in action. Not too sure of the return of one of his department heads; they did bring back the show Fantasy Island. Maybe when he opens up his bar, former McCarthy’s, we can have our own Polish version of Tammany Hall. I know there won’t be a dry eye in any prepubescent girl when Johnny gets back in action. –

Fraud...just an excuse
It may have started out as a trump effort to win but I think it has been diverted to kill any chance of mail in voting to be a permanent way to cast your vote.
Because the GOP knows mail in is so easy for Americans to vote that it will benefit the Democrat party..

Now does any reasonable person believe there was so much fraud it turned the election? Why aren't they auditing blue states must be a lot of fraud there..nope just the swing states.

This is becoming a joke. The reasons are now so silly even some GOP members are getting sick of it.

What the GOP is missing is that they are making it harder for everyone to vote. Elderly love mail in voting, even trump voted that way.

We saw a trump backed Texas politician lose to a democrat. The solution will be to vote out the GOP state's political positions.

And now they will contest every loss in an audit attack.

They will not find enough fraud and then they will make up sayings to convince the loony toons clowns....that believe anything they say.

Water plant that supplies us
Oswego does have a 26 million gallon per day drinking water filtration plant. It uses coagulation first to help precipitate out contaminates then filtration (but I don’t know what type - membrane or other), and they add fluoride and chlorination for disinfection. They publish water quality reports.
I didn’t compare it to Cortland’s water quality.
There was an article from this summer about upgrades they are planning and looks like they now have approval for. Seems to be pumps and electrical mostly, not the type of filtration or pretreatment.
So perhaps someone can enlighten us as to filtration and pretreatment that we trust!

Oswego County Covid Stats

According to the County website there have been
9,572 cases of covid in the county
458 active cases
97 deaths
933 mandatory isolation/quarantine

According to the New York Times there have been 50 new cases per day for the last 7 days September 4- September 10.


Knowing how lying and covering up are part of every day life in Oswego County it is very likely those county numbers are under reported by as much as 50%.

Oswego Library
Imagine all the books our local library could purchase to "upgrade" the selection, the foot traffic and helping those in need to read more!

"Libraries are critical components of communities throughout the region I represent, providing everything from books and job-searching tools to internet access and cultural events" Ritchie said. "Even during the pandemic, hardworking staff members at local libraries continued to provide important services and resources to their patrons. I am pleased that several in my district will receive the funding they need to make upgrades and look forward to seeing how they improve the experience for library users."

Hurray for the Moose!
With all the negativity that's been surrounding the Moose I just wanted to take a minute and throw out some positives.
1. Tracie has been the administrator now for almost a full year and the doors are STILL open, their numbers are good, and people keep coming back!
2. Jim Toy DONATES his time at least once a week in the club! He's always making five star dinners and very reasonable prices and gets paid nothing to do it!
3. There is no proof of ANY missing money from ANY where within the lodge.
4. The ONLY people that don't come in at this point are the ones that were stirring the pot and stoking the fire for months. I say, good riddance to bad rubbish!
5. Every time that place gets a new admin or a new higher officer there are certain people there that try to run them out. Tracie has done a great job ignoring all these false accusations and kept her head held high, kept doing her job regardless of the bullshit thrown at her and in my opinion, has succeeded greatly!
6. There are a lot of places y'all can go to satisfy your addictions. If all you can do is speak ill of the people keeping "your lodge" going, FIND SOMEPLACE ELSE TO GO!
Keep up the great work you guys! Ignore the bullshit and keep doing what you're doing! The club is a better place because of folks like you. Much appreciation to you!

Stop for school busses

3:15 pm. On September 9th, the second day of school. This car pictured. was East bound, just having past Sheldon Hall, ignored a FULLY STOPPED- SIGN OUT- AND RED LIGHTS FLASHING BRIGHT YELLOW SCHOOL BUS, she blew directly past a full sized school bus which was west bound on Washington Blvd
( directly in front of the old NiMo switch yard.)

The bus was dropping off 3 boys, about 10 to 13 years old, who were bout to cross the same street, Washington Blvd, where this negligent driver sped by the stopped bus.

The female bus driver, saw it coming, as we did , directly behind this car, the bus driver- was very ALERT. blew her horn, and made sure the 3 boys stayed in a safe area by curb.

Thank you bus driver! You are today's HERO.

I don't know you, or the boys, but they could be any of our kids!

TO THE YOUNG FEMALE COLLAGE AGE girl with the light brown sloppy bun, with. friend in front In this dark silver-ish Ford Explorer: WAKE UP, you could have killed a child or 3!!
You broke the law and- as you slightly slowed after passing the BLATENT RED FLASHING STOP SIGN ON THE BUS, you know KNOW what you did.
But you were so busy laughing with your friend, you appeared to think it all quite funny.

However as we followed you through town, and observed you swerving and changing lanes , it was obvious you have no concern for your dangerous and possibly life ending behavior.

Re: More city drama..
The surname for the girl in question is Porter, since she was a minor
when it happened I do not feel comfortable sharing the first name. The
people suppose to be present were a close friend of Michelle
Winklestine. The aforementioned Archer family includes Jeremy and Mary
in addition to the individual who loves to stir the most drama in the
entirety of the city: Maggie. She is in her mid 20's, but wants to
interfere with civil cases and act like an adult. As for the Powers:
Pamela and Stephen were the ones intended to be involved in the case.
If it was not for little miss Maggie who portrays herself on social
media as a member of the left, the opposite is true: Her support of
extremist Republican policies have become increasingly more apparent
over the years. The Barlow case was buried in the media with Barlow's
attempts to sue the Port of Oswego agricultural Export Center. The
port, as a matter of fact, was in line with their building plans. But
Billy was forced to do something to keep the media attention away from
himself. A google search for "Barlow to port: See you in court" will
net many results. This began July 12th 2021 and is ongoing.

Today's Quote September 5-6/21

 Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Barlow’s Plan to Destroy our Way of Life in Oswego
What a leader. This kid has no idea what he is doing and has a Common Council that is just as foolish as he is. Barlow has made a joke of being an honest Mayor and has sucked up to and ripped off the taxpayers in favor of his buddies like Avery, Broadwell, and the owner of Riverwalk, let alone, taking care of his little food truck his family owes. It is funny how Barlow's Food Truck gets prime locations for all the city events.

It is time to understand that in the next two years, Barkley's Ass puppet will be leaving office and will be looking for a new venue. He will be leaving the financial condition of the City of Oswego in shambles, and it is too late to change what is about to occur, so you Barlow lovers, get prepared for a good kick in the ass. The Comedy Council, which is not funny at all, has been a willing accomplice to this destruction.

With new City Budget, 2022, as compared to the 2016 budget, you will see the following:

1) Revenues are down by $1,297,000

2) Expenses are up by $433,000

3) 5he tax levy is up by $1,730,000..that is your property tax you pay

4) The city Assessed Value is up by $71,300,000

5) Yes, the tax rate is still at $15.29/$1,0000, but you are paying more in assessed value of your property, so the rate is the same but the cost to you went up.

6) The Debt Service has gone from $551,000/year to $1,450,000/year almost 3 times higher than when he took office; the real debt is around $75 to $80,000,000

7) They have invested in foolish projects like the waterfront, wrights landing and water parks that will bring in very few visitors and create very few revenue dollars, so don't expect a big increase in revenue.

8) They have now built (3) low cost housing units that will bring in over 200 families that will pay no taxes and will use up our services that you will be paying for. (schools, safety, police, welfare) Can hardly wait to see the scumbags that will be wandering the city streets.

9) These new housing unit owners will pay no taxes and are exempt until 2040, as is Avery's new building, Broadwell's make-believe water park, Broadwells hotels and restaurants, and The Riverwalk construction.

So this is just scratching the surface of the crap that the City of Oswego is about to face, and it is too late to reverse the damage that they have done. The Comedy Council is about to review this joke of a budget and they will do nothing to reverse the path we are on. I know, you think this is about dislike for this administration, and in a way you are correct. To watch and see what they are doing is embarrassing. To know we are about to fall into a shit hole and still have to drive over terrible roads and look at that disaster downtown (Southern Fare) just frustrates the hell out of me. Time to sell out and move to Fulton, a "City with a Future" Ha-ha. Call your Alderman and tell them to get to work on this budget and try to reverse some of the damage that has already been caused!!!! Remember, elections are right around the corner.

Afghanistan and the U.S. involvement
I am saddened by the death of the 13 military people that were killed while trying to evacuate from that shithole country (Afghanistan), and feel for the families that have had to endure this loss. I do not want to offend anybody, but we should have been out of there 15 years ago after we got rid of Bin Laden.

The media is making a lot of noise about these deaths, but these military people enlisted in the military system and it was fully expected that if you are in a hostile environment, you had a good chance of being wounded, or killed by the enemy.

I don't remember seeing the outrage by the media when we were in Vietnam in another war that we should not have been engaged in and were lied to by our government about how we were there to help the people, who did not give a shit about us.

Comparing what is going on now, to what was going on in The Nam, makes me wonder why we keep getting into countries to change their government to be like ours, when we had no right to be there at all. Somebody was making money at our expense.

The losses, although tragic, were not close in comparison. We were in Afghanistan for 20 years and had 2,400 American soldiers killed and 20,000 wounded. We were in Vietnam for 10 years and had 59,000 American soldiers killed and 304,000 wounded. (Although the percent that died in Vietnam is similar to other wars, amputations or crippling wounds were 300 percent higher than in World War II. 75,000 Vietnam veterans are severely disabled.) That works out to 120 /year in Afghanistan, as compared to 5,900/year in Vietnam.

I am not degrading those that served in either of these wars, but there are considerable differences. All of the soldiers that were in Afghanistan were enlisted and knew that they could serve in a hot zone, where a large percentage were drafted into the service against their will, and ended up fighting in Vietnam.

Our government, in both cases outright lied to the American public, and was responsible for these deaths and wounded. We should never have been there in the first place. Biden is doing the right thing by getting out of Afghanistan, and like the evacuation of Vietnam, there is no easy solution.

I am proud of all that have served, regardless of the places they have been, but the media is now making a big deal out of the mass confusion of getting out of a country, like Vietnam and Afghanistan, where the people only liked the money we poured into those countries, but mostly, never wanted us there in the first place.

It is time for the United States to stop nation building. Most countries are perfectly happy or tolerate the government they have, and we need to butt out.

And yes, I am a Vietnam Vet.

RE: Food for thought
It’s no secret that Jeremy and Nicole Powers provided a police statement that THEY were the ones who dug in the area. They both testified to that fact. However, the detail of their disturbance was dissimilar and it didn’t match another witness statement. That other witness testified, also, that it was NOT Mr. and Mrs. Powers but she did see 2 MEN. It’s pretty clear she did NOT see the former investigator and former reporter as she testified that she watched the men go to a neighbor’s house. Is it a possibility that one or both of the Powers made a false police statement? Or that 2 men DID go into the woods as the other witness testified but were too cowardly to go to the police? Would you like to see the police statements all together to opine on who is telling the Truth or who is lying?

The above is NOT what happened? Someone or some people made false police statements or falsely testified? I believe it! But who?

Interacting sexually via text messages, Snapchat and that is ok and allowed to do with your boss if you work for the DPW. Caught hiding in little spots alone in her truck for hours a day on the clock getting paid doing god knows what. Not to mention the amount of cocaine being done.

So it’s not ok to use your office for personal gain…multiple grants for the diaper store and toy store, multiple loans that were “forgiven,” other taxpayer funded “loans” to Pimple Popper Pauldine to buy and fix up Stone’s for Emmons business. That doesn’t include all the jobs and contracts for Emmons anti-vax, religious nutjob friends.

Pay no attention to the cowards writing about the moose... They have offered no proof... Carol, C.Kelker, Leroy, Liz, stand up and show proof these things are going on. I understand International has been in and found no wrong doing by anyone. Why the continuing bashing of members doing things to better the club...the real question is what have you done...

Moose Facts
The Moose Lodge is NOT closed! It was closed on Monday, August 23rd through Thursday, August 26th.
It was NOT closed because of anything ANYONE did!
It was in fact closed because of what others DIDN'T do.
The fact is, it was closed because at the time, there were ONLY TWO trained bartenders and BOTH were sick with CONTAGIOUS illnesses not related to Covid and NO ONE ELSE could be bothered to volunteer any of their time to keep the club open.
Would you have rather had sick bartenders working there handing out your drinks???
If there were more people willing to help and spend a little less time bitching about what the ones that are in fact doing all they can there, the doors would never have had to be shut at all.
As far as "Toy" and Tracie go, WHO CARES!! Seriously, if they were doing any of the things you people keep fabricating, don't you think SOMETHING, ANYTHING would have been done by now?? You're beating a dead horse!

Today's Quote September 2/21

 In order to win you must be prepared to lose sometime.

And leave one or two cards showing.

Van Morrison

Minetto wasted tax payer money:
The Town has been paying a law firm named Coughlin and Gerhart to handle messes that Familo and Norfleet continue to cause. Also there was a resident that settled with the Town on a drainage issue but was using a Law firm called Smith Sovik, Kendrick and Sugnet that Norfleet has relatives working at, I would think that would be a conflict of interest. They continue to ignore FOIL requests for the total money paid to outside legal counsel to clean up their vindictive games. They also have lied about the $170k COVID relief from the government stating they haven't received any money, even tho every other Town has already spent their money.

 There are no facts, only interpretations.
Friedrich Nietzsche

Someone named in Lisa and John's book is crying. Boo hoo.
Yea, stupid. The book was mostly about HEIDI and the injustice done to Gary. I bet it was Martha, if anyone, who would sue. What a sweet revenge for her niece's exposure for a lie during a podcast.

Can you cry an explanation to soil samples at the cabin site indicating chemical markers of human decomposition? Can't fight facts, now can you? You can only twist them.

Wanna know what I heard? I heard Heidi was an informant and that the officer who signed her up/that she was working with, dropped her 'informant card' in a public parking lot and that the 'found' card wasn't turned into police for about a month. Do you recall that information from Court Testimony and Court Documents? HHmmm. Shouldn't be too hard to access public court records of civil suits. Heck, there may even be one for the podcast lie!!

Public Record, baby! tink/sparkle.

There's a special place in HELL for people like you. What kind of a person deceives and preys on a grieving widow. What kind of a person then makes a deal with his good friend on the OH Board, Atom Avery to buy the properties he literally stole from this woman for many times his money to make a parking lot. Where's the oversight? Does anyone have any decency? Follow the money, Avery's got his hand in this deal and hospital administration supports it because Avery got Backus his job. What's Backus cut? This city is disgusting, corrupt and it never changes.

You can tell by reading it that they gave Tonya Priest as little credit as possible, and even tried to discredit her with their innuendo. They sure crapped on her after all she did for them.

Oswego Hospital
Could someone please investigate as to why the Oswego Hospital Lab ,located in Hannibal does NOT have coverage when an employee calls out??? Or do they schedule NO help on purpose ,so that you are forced to go to Fulton????This seems to happen ALL the time!!! This is a reoccurring problem and is irritating as Hell! My mother always calls prior to going there and is told YES, "we are open tomorrow" . She gets there and it is closed! AGAIN! Several other people were there also ,this AM. Many patients come for blood work that early have been fasting all night. This is soooo inconsiderate to the people of Oswego County!!! Sons and daughters have to take time off from work to bring their parents and or grandparents there . Hannibal blood draw station is a convenient place for the elderly citizens to go. This has that are unable to travel a great distance. This is a beneficial service: " really a necessity". It is a shame that is not used to it's full potential. This has been going on since it opened , do not use the pandemic as an excuse. Oswego hospital once again is failing the people they are suppose to serve!!!!! WHAT IS THE PROBLEM , Oswego health CEO?????

 I see the world being slowly transformed into a wilderness;

I hear the approaching thunder that, one day, will destroy us too.

I feel the suffering of millions. And yet, when I look up at the sky,

I somehow feel that everything will change for the better,

that this cruelty too shall end,

that peace and tranquility will return once more.
Anne Frank

Scrapped Peebles and O'Brien
Some of the book is total BS. The part about Mike Todd's father sending him into the military is false. Anyone who knew Mike in high school knows he planned on going into the military. It had nothing to do with Heidi Allen's disappearance. It's odd that Peebles and O'Brien didn't interview Mike Todd. Like him or not, it's BS probably to sensationalize the book.

School Board
Who the hell is thjs James MacKenzie on the school board? What an asshat. He wants to take away the public's right to write comments and feels they should be attending the meetings if they have something to say. Yo asshat, there's a pandemic, maybe people don't want to attend the meetings. It's bad enough you send kids back to school and not offer remote learning so the kids can get sick or bring it home to their families.

If MacKenzie doesn't want to hear what the public has to say, then maybe he should resign. The board is a joke anyway. Sean Ohmchat can't even manage a business and doesn't send his kids to public schools but he thinks he's qualified to dictate what should go on in the public schools. What a joke.

Today's Quote August 25/21

 In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth

the humble reasoning of a single individual.
Galileo Galilei

Such BS
Priest gave them many of their witnesses. Read the book right. The unreliable came from Oakes. Witness after witness came from Priest. Lisa peebles came from Priest. Almost everything came from Priest. If priest is unreliable you wouldn't have a case or half the witnesses that did come forward. If Priest is unreliable then so would Lisa's case and anything o'Brien gathered as witnesses or what they consider evidence. Lisa and John seemed to pat their own backs while using Priest to gather anything they could. Any information gathered by them from Priest was confirmed in the book. It clearly says Haumann worked daily with Priest basically until they got everything they needed and wanted. Including witnesses Carl Robinson, Amanda Brailey, the recording on Wescott. Everything that was detailed was confirmed in the book. So unreliable everything was confirmed. Wasn't for Priest her case would have ammounted to nothing. Lisa peebles did not want the idea they were involved in the death of Priests husband. But brings up they may have par taken in the death of Carol wood, which again no evidence to support those claims. If Peebles discredits Priest. Her entire case means nothing.
My issue was the ending. O'Brien and Peebles claiming this theory that they placed Heidi in the van off Gary's property. Which makes them unreliable, again. My only question to them would be where then did the van go they kidnapped her in?? This theory they have reminds me of what Dodd did. Made a theory up with no valid evidence to support it. The more I read it the only thing that seemed to matter was patting themselves on the back while thanking even Priest and anyone who helped for coming forward, even if it took their lives. Pretty demented on their part. After reading it no one should have helped either Peebles or O'Brien. Their concern was never the safety of others. But making themselves look like the savors. In which case they saved no one. Not even Thibodeau. In the end they produced the same exact thing Dodd did made up theories, with no supporting evidence.

Do our politicians in DC do everything but their jobs.
They are not scientist to talk about climate change
Nor medical experts to evaluate Covid, vaccines, effectivness or other options that may be working in other countries but not approved by the FDA.

They are the party that has always said too much gov't in people's lives yet they want to put down some rules to stop mask mandates which goes against their policy of too much gov't in business....schools are businesses.

Does it seem odd that the only faction in this world that is really not fighting the good fight against Covid are the GOP in America. Can this be their way of making Biden look bad for the next POTUS election no matter how many men, woman and children have to die or become disabled!!!

Population decline in the City of Oswego
What a surprise that the population declined in the city of Oswego. Having a joke of a mayor contributed to this in a big way. He thinks that having parties at Breitbeck so his family can make money seling their food, building up the waterfront and getting grants to build welfare housing was progress. The two new apartment buildings are only moving people who were renting houses and relocating them into a waterfront building.
Here is a news flash Billy; we need industry in and around the city. Bringing people to the water front is not a profit center and brings in very little revenue for all of the tax dollars you spent. When you create jobs, it brings families to where they are, and you have created no jobs, except for your family and a few corrupt friends. You will leave office and your legacy will be that you were responsible for having three welfare buildings constructed, which will bring in the wrong type of people, unless you believe in the free welfare state. No job creation, and this new population will increase our taxes, especially school taxes, as their kids will go to our schools, will be fed breakfast and lunch, and we will see our school taxes go up. You and that moron Caraccioli are now threatening the Port's expansion, which will create more jobs; but you want to shut down their expansion, because in a small section of town, people may not be able to see a shitty little light house. The Port expansion will create JOBS, you idiot.
It is sad to have a leader that cannot understand that corruption for your friends will not improve the lifestyle for the very people you were to represent. I feel sorry for the next mayor as he/she will have a very difficult job correcting and recovering from the mess you have made of Oswego.

We have seen enough of these meaningless pictures of Little Twit Barlow in the paper. This is just unmitigated Bullshit and if the paper doesn't stop putting these meaningless pictures in the paper it will be time for me to drop my subscription. It is bad enough that you don't cover much news, or do any investigative reporting, but to print these bullshit pictures are insulting. Why don't you investigate the corruption in the city government that Barlow is covering up, or the major corruption in the county government? No, just print silly little pictures of the Little Twit.

Ospelt and highway
Does this latest surprise anyone? The highway dept breeds corruption. How many times has Ospelt been investigated? Now his daddy ain't here to bail him out so what will happen? His sidekick Kelly had problems too.

It goes on and on because people elect fools for legislators. Look at "chairman" Weatherups past when he was the town of Hastings supervisor then ask yourself if you should expect anything to change. Bucky Wilber's daddy works for highway and having Bucky as county clerk is a big fat joke. Ask any county employee.

Then you have Mary Ellen Chesbro who is married to former legislator Earl who cost the county plenty with the grindings fiasco. County legisators who are in conflcit of interest with their jobs like Emmons Stahl Walpole and Karasick add to the problem. Don't expect anything. They will cover and cover for each other. Ospelt probably knows where too many skeletons are buried.

Legislator Drumm called it for what it is when Holly Carpenter got hired. That's the biggest joke in the county.

Re: the book
The book about the Thibodeau case discredits Priest but seems to try not to discredit her too openly so as not to ruin the story. It's more of a read between the lines thing. On Chapter 24 they say "But as often became the case, Tonya didn't follow orders." Then on Chapter 50 Peebles says about Tonya "I was concerned about the minutia she was adding to the story."
I heard from a Syacuse reporter that Peebles and O'Brian stopped taking calls from Priest because of a question of her credibility.

It was clear that King and Oakes didn't want any evidence to come out. It's hard to believe they weren't brought up on some ethical charge.

I wonder why some people will gladly believe the bone fragments found in Gary’s burn barrel were Heidi’s remains when the Smithsonian anthropology found no consistent evidence of human remains but they won’t believe the chemical markers at the forensic dig site could not be? Oh, crap, that’s right. The OCSD were incompetent and didn’t take soil samples! I guess it just depends on which narrative (or who you know) on which one is believed. I’m glad that the defense followed through and chemical markers pointed to human decomposition. Too bad the people came forward claiming to have disturbed the area before the reporter and investigator got to the site and the OCSD further destroyed evidence by bringing in a small excavator after the ME was done with the soil sifting for remains. **as if any physical remains would be found after 20+ years.** Way to go with investigating, OCSD. Does anyone have half a brain in that department or do they simply not care about Heidi being found because she wasn’t THEIR loved one? Wattya say, asshole Toad? Do you even know how to do an investigation or just throw your weight around? Typical stupid bully!!

I hear Karma can be a bitch. I would hate to see any of the hypocrites have to live through not knowing or accepting the TRUTH about their missing loved one!!

IMO, the book was worth the money and time. But I would have liked to have more facts from the initial investigation.

Hey Hilton. Are you ready to open the files to the public or still want to be difficult and make FOIL the only way to get Public Information? Come on. Name the time and place. You weren’t involved in the initial investigation and the old f++ks should be dropping off soon. Are you trying not to embarrass them? Too late. It hasn’t ALL been exposed but what has surely won’t change anyone’s opinion. It’s just confirmation bias from this point. But knowledge is power and I, for one, want more knowledge. Can you help a citizen out?

Hmmm, was Lisa talking about the sleezy Italian lawyer?

Kelley needed gone long time ago

Make superintendent position an elected job

Need county legislative positions ALL replaced come elections, they are failing the people for political purposes

in the Oswego river and Lake Ontario lying or situated within the
boundaries of the city of Oswego and/or the town of Scriba subject to

power over the survey, development and operation of port facilities and
industrial projects in such port district as hereinafter more
specifically set forth, and the coordination of the same with existing
or future agencies of transportation with a view to the increase and
efficiency of all such facilities and projects and the furtherance of
commerce and industry, environmental protection, aesthetics, health,

Looks clear to me the city controls nothing that the port does. It also looks like

So how does an Oswego County Highway Truck get Stolen from the Highway garage along with tools from trucks and no one is notified about it? Law enforcement was never told. How does a million-dollar camera system just happen to be not working at the time? Last week the truck was found behind Phillip Gordon & Sons, once again no authorities were notified, they wanted to get it wiped down and back to the garage as quick as possible. Why is it that employees are getting fined 100 dollars for the tools be stolen out of the trucks? Why is it that the superintendent and Deputy superintendent are bribing employees not to say anything to anyone about what's going on and that the 100 dollars being fined can be made up in "Overtime" ?

Oswego Needs to know what kind of Dirty things are going on, and Kurt Ospelt (Superintendent) and Jim Kelley (Deputy Superintendent) should be explaining!! Get the word out about this Oswego!!!

Port Authority
New York state public-benefit corporations and authorities operate like quasi-private corporations, with boards of directors appointed by elected officials, overseeing both publicly operated and privately operated systems. Public-benefit corporations share characteristics with government agencies, but they are exempt from many state and local regulations. Of particular importance, they can issue their own debt, allowing them to bypass limits on state debt contained in the New York State Constitution. This allows public authorities to make potentially risky capital and infrastructure investments without directly putting the credit of New York State or its municipalities on the line. As a result, public authorities have become widely used for financing public works, and they are now responsible for more than 90% of the state's debt.

The growing influence of public authorities over state and local financing, coupled with their ability to avoid regulations applicable to government agencies, has led to calls for reform. Some reforms were passed in the Public Authorities Accountability Act of 2005.[1] The New York State Authorities Budget Office, in their 2018 annual report, noted that there were 47 state authorities and 531 local authorities, including 109 IDAs and 292 not-for-profit corporations created locally, that they provided oversight for in New York State.[2] According to this same ABO report, the operating expenses in 2017 for the 47 state authorities was $34.82 billion.[3] Additionally, the 47 state authorities carried a total of $160.4 billion in outstanding debt.

CDC Increases Community Transmission Level from ‘Substantial’ to ‘High’-
COVID-19 is Spreading Quickly in Oswego County

OSWEGO COUNTY - The spread of COVID-19 in Oswego County has increased significantly over the past week, and the federal Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has elevated the transmission rate from “substantial” to “high,” Jiancheng Huang, Oswego County Public Health Director, said today.
Following the CDC guidance, Huang said the County Health Department “highly recommends” that vaccinated and unvaccinated people wear masks at their workplace and in all indoor public spaces in Oswego County. He recommends that businesses and other organizations encourage their employees and customers to wear masks indoors.

“Oswego County has seen the COVID-19 virus spread quickly over the past week,” said Huang. “We attribute the surge to the spread of the Delta variant. The variant is more infectious than other strains of the virus that circulated previously. As a result, the CDC has upgraded the County’s community transmission risk level from ‘substantial’ to ‘high.’”

Huang said people who haven’t received a COVID vaccine are much more susceptible to the Delta variant and are much more likely to become seriously ill and require hospitalization than those who have been vaccinated.

In Oswego County, vaccination rates in the 19 years and younger population are between 7.5% and 80%, and the rates of age 65 and older are between 62.1% and 100%, varying by zip code.

“We are now seeing a much greater increase in the percentage of younger people infected with the virus in Oswego County, from 2.33% in July 2020, to 19.86% in March 2021,” said Huang. “Now that people age 12 and older are eligible to be vaccinated, the percentage of those vaccinated who become infected in this group is reduced to 15.73%. In the age 65 and older age group, we have seen the percentage decrease by more than half, from 18.6% in July 2020 to 6.38% in March 2021. The percentage increased two points in July 2021 mostly due to the Delta variant.”

Although some vaccinated people have become infected with the Delta variant, the vaccine is effective in preventing severe illness, hospitalization, and death.

“It’s important to be aware that, of the handful of fully-vaccinated patients who have been hospitalized, all had underlying health conditions,” said Huang. “No fully-vaccinated person has died from COVID-19 infection so far. To quickly get the virus under control, we ask all eligible individuals to get vaccinated,” he said.

COVID-19 vaccines are now available to everyone age 12 and older. Vaccines are widely available through clinics offered by the County Health Department, at area pharmacies, and through community health care providers.

Still no 5,000 awning at WADES, and all his buddies got 10,000 Canales, Vonas,McGraths bar, the Avery properties, and im sure that BROADWELLS got some, (Broadwell pays $12.50 a hr. and charges around 150 a night).

You have Got to be kidding, a Memorial Plaque for Kevin the Pitbull
his clown mayor (Barlow) has reached the pinnacle of stupidity by wasting City Hall law space for a memorial to a homeless dog. Really Billy-Boy! So far you have removed a historical fence, lost the wheels to a historical cannon (Field Rifle), and now a stiupid plaque for a homeless dog in front of what once was a historical building. You really are a clown. Along with this, you have three welfare buildings constructed that will hold a couple hundred welfare families that will be roaming the streets of Oswego, turning our city into a slum town.
If you wanted to do something this stupid, you could have at least put it out of sight, at that joke of a "Dog Park" that never gets used. At least it would have been an appropriate place to put it.
Billy, you will prostitute yourself for any publicity you can get and the Palladium-Times should be ashamed that they even covered the event, let alone put it on the front page. You have turned this city into a fucking circus.

Also of course the IDA is yet another corrupt entity doling $$$$$)$))$ money out to political donars no doubt.
The ugly hotels would make a glorious puplic park were the leveled and running biking skating scootering dog walking up to the public beach with no port authority
What beautiful waterfront property could benefit the LOCAL RESIDENTS

That woman from GA M Greene said there is no surge in the covid.
Texas has had 12k cases PER DAY in the last week.
The liar from FL who got a shot and now does not want people to wear masks has put FL in a mess.

How many times does the GOP have to make bad judgments until your rep. stop listening to them.
They have this whole country at each others throats, masks, vax, kids no masks.

Look how many ppl in the ICU around the country and space is running out.

One medical professional said the Delta surge is just starting and will get worse.


PSSSSSST! Trump did not win the election! No proof after all the audits and the crazies still believe he did.

AZ has said there are about 178 questionable votes out of millions and millions.

This country is really starting to show its lack of people with common sense.

To the person(s) questioning the value of the port authority. A simple Google search turned up, the Port of Oswego Economic Impacts Study Released – Supports $26.7M in Economic Activity, More Than 209 Jobs. Kind of looks like the poster either has no internet skills or is a complete idiot. I bet that is brings in more to the city than that dam water park that blocks the lighthouse view that no one is talking about MAYOR.

Today's Quote August 13/21

 Question everything. Learn something. Answer nothing.

Chinese Resturants
I think it was in the late 70's when I first tried Chinese food or what passes for Chinese in America. A couple friends and I went to the one that was briefly located in the old North End Dinner just outside of Fulton. I ordered sweet and sour pork. One of my friends had Szechuan Shrimp and I don't remember the other ones. The sweet and sour was just too sweet for me but luckily we had side plates on which we shared with each other getting a taste of everything. I was hooked and have been a devotee ever since.
I have often wondered what was the story behind the people who worked in Chinese resturants. Were they slaves, indentured servants or what? Today I decided to see what there was online about these workers and I found the story below. It is worth reading.

CSEA Support For Port Authority
The Port continues to be vital to the economic and overall success of the city as it has for decades. Oswego is, after all, the 'Port City'. To see negative statements from the public and elected officials in recent weeks against the Port and its employees that work hard every day to maintain and operate this vital facility has been disheartening.
The grain facility is the next step in making the Port a more productive business that will benefit the community, the region, New York farmers, and the State as a whole. The $15 million project, announced by Governor Andrew Cuomo in 2019, has been regarded as the largest agricultural investment in the Central New York region. 
The public and local officials were given the right to respond to the plans throughout the process. It’s unfortunate to see the Port vilified and referred to as ignorant and irresponsible. This project was intended to be an exciting time for advancement and has now turned into a public argument.
The Port’s project, built with state money, will support state and local jobs. For the Port City to thrive and grow, we need to recognize the importance of, and invest in, the Port of Oswego.

City of Oswego violating their Own Rules
Everytime I go downtown I am embarrassed by the use of the public parking spaces for Southern Fare Restaurant use as outdoor dining and the ugly condition that this mess in the street occupies. The use of wooden picnic tables is an embarrassment and they are not painted. They never get cleaned and the potted plants/trees are half dead and look so cheap, and it just fits in with the Barlow mentality. Below is the law and application that is being violated with the consent of Barlow and Jeff Mcgann, one of Barlow's flunkies. The application is very clear, not that it matters to this administration that will let its buddies do what they want.
The application clearly says TEMPORARY, but I guess Barlow and McGann do not understand the meaning of Temporary. It was only to be in effect until the duration of the state of emergency declared by the State of New York until such time that regulations set forth by the State of New York limiting full indoor dining capacity are lifted or until October 1, 2020, whichever comes first. News flash , the state has lifted its regulation. It seems that the Baby Mayor doesn't care that the downtown looks like shit.
Give Barlow a call or better yet , call Mr. Arrogant McGann at the number listed below on the TEMPORARY APPLICATION (315-591-5919), and demand that, that "shithole on the corner of West 1st and Bridge St" be removed and turned back into parking, which the residents paid for in their taxes.

City of Oswego Application for Temporary Conditional Use Permits
Outdoor/Seasonal Dining
This application is to be used by restaurant/bar owners to request temporary conditional use permits for outdoor/seasonal dining facilities during this state of emergency for the Covid-19 pandemic. The City of Oswego, through Mayor Billy Barlow's Executive Order, recognizes that restaurants/bars are critical to the vibrancy of Oswego and to ensure that our local restaurants/bars remain successful and that the public feels safe patronizing them, the City of Oswego is willing to provide opportunities for restaurants to expand their outdoor dining capacity to promote compliance with current guidelines set forth by New York State. In addition, the City of Oswego recognizes restaurants/bars throughout Oswego have struggled financially during the Covid-19 pandemic and wishes to provide the maximum opportunity possible for restaurants/bars to succeed. The City of Oswego will temporarily waive or modify the requirements in Oswego to expand outdoor/seasonal dining facilities during the COVID-19 pandemic for the duration of the state of emergency declared by the State of New York until such time that regulations set forth by the State of New York limiting full indoor dining capacity are lifted or until October 1, 2020, whichever comes first. Restaurants/bars must demonstrate that social distancing guidelines will be implemented, which includes ensuring that patrons remain six feet apart when dining unless there is a physical barrier between parties in order to apply. In reviewing the application, the City of Oswego will determine if granting the temporary permit will not cause substantial harm to the health and safety of the public. In addition, the City of Oswego shall not condition or delay the granting of temporary conditional use permit on the completion of a traffic study and will make a determination of the application within 2 business days. The City of Oswego shall consider requests for new or additional outdoor seating up to 50 seats. The City of Oswego may approve new or additional outdoor seats over the 50 seat threshold where the applicant can show that they can adequately comply with all New York State Department of Health guidelines, can maintain adequate parking for the establishment without over burdening nearby residential neighborhoods, and that the seats and activity will not negatively impact abutting residential neighborhoods. The City of Oswego may permit the use of parking lots, the public right of way, and on street parking as an outdoor dining facility. Outdoor dining facilities shall require a barrier where it is located within a parking lot, within the parking area located in the public right of way, or where alcohol is served. No entertainment or speakers shall be permitted on the premises of the outdoor dining facility. The outdoor dining facility shall not be available for use after 10:00 pm, but the City of Oswego can set an earlier closing time for the outdoor dining facility based upon the unique aspects of each application. The temporary conditional use permit may be suspended and/or revoked by the Director of Economic Development, the Permit Administrator, the Mayor or designee if any requirements are not followed and/or if the property is the subject of multiple verified complaints related to the outdoor/seasonal dining facility, within 10 days of notice. Submit Application and attachments to the City of Oswego Permit Administrator Jeff McGann at jmcgann@oswegony.org. If you have any questions, please call Jeff McGann at 315-591-5919

The Book- Meh
The Scrapped book really doesn't have much in it that wasn't in the news before. It's mostly Peebles and OBrien blowing their own horns but it does show what ashats Oakes, Moody, and King were. What's odd is that they only mentioned that Priest wasn't credible and they never mentioned why she wasn't called to testify. King should have been removed from the case. He showed too much bias.

There is no East 10th and Duer
You see, there is NO east 10th and Duer.

Ther IS, HOWEVER Duer And Utica located a block west of East 10th and Utica Street
AND yes a driver ran the stopsign , south bound on Duer flying through Utica causing the accident. Let our PD handle it. PERIOD.

And....? If the east bound drivers coming down Utica Street hill were not straining to see all the junk man's junk, they may have avoided being hit by this jerk. That day and other days.
BTW, no one from said shop even ran to assist!
If you live nearby, you would have also seen the Street people, tweakers, and questionable night wanders, pawing through his FREE dirty junk he left by the ton on his front driveway! The homeless and scroungers had a ball for 2 nights in this pig sty! A neighborhood filled with children.
I don't care where the Alderman lives, he still has a job and this ward is a mess , beach or no beach, so, seeing as you know so much about his whereabouts, tell him to drive around his decaying ward.

The 4 way stops are what they are. If you drive, deal with the signage! Don't bitch! Put that energy into stopping and observing the road. Remember when you had to identify signs when you took your learners permit test?
And learned when you don't obey Street signs, it results in tickets and accidents? Rethink the simple shit. Yeah, do that.
And I bet you don't observe the rear end bumps of those driving down that Utica Street hill because they are trying to read that tiny unreadable electronic sign on the junk shop. Locals see and hear the tire screeching all day, when the OPEN sign is up but nobody's home.. lmao.

4 way stops
Quit bitching about the four way stops. What is your point? People can’t run red lights as easily as stop signs? Do we take down all the stops signs and put traffic lights at every intersection? Is the idea you can’t run a stop sign if there aren’t any? Do you think that sitting at a red light wasting time and fuel somehow is the way to go? They need to also get rid of the stupid lights on east Cayuga street at 2nd and 1st. When there was a light on east 10th street the line of cars stretched to Albany street waiting for the light to change or someone to turn left. People will certainly race through an intersection if there is no stop sign or faster yet trying to beat a yellow light. If you think not, well then we figured out who is stupid. Accidents happen regardless of the safety measures or controls put in place. The causes of accidents are due to the inattentive or selfish driver. Presently there is no sign or traffic light that can resolve that problem. Until then, come to a complete stop, look both ways, and move on, really move on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – Garrett Morgan

Oakes Should Be Scrapped
Just finished reading my copy of Scrapped Justice And A Teen Informant. Excellent book and should clear up any doubts about Greg Oakes being a lying, corrupt piece of crap. The Oswego County Sheriff's Department should also be ashamed of their work and conduct on the Heidi Allen case.
Thanks to Lisa Peebles and John O'Brien for pulling back the curtains and exposing the corrupt justice system in Oswego County!

Aug 8-9/21

Are you reading the reviews from citizens all over the country on scrapped? Peebles exposes the incompetence of small town cops. That's putting it nicely. Everyone who has obtained a copy. If you can afford a second one gather the copies and start mailing them to higher authority. With everyone's help spreading the truth we might be able to force a hand in arrests. Choose someone of higher authority preferably out of washington justice dept to ship a copy to. Itll eventually end up in the right hands.

Oakes should ask himself why in the hell Heidi's parents ever took children to a nudist beach. What in the hell kind of parents were they? Doesn't that fall under the category of pedophiles??

As a resident of Oswego county, and hearing the rumors about Heidi my entire life, it just comes to show how corrupt our "good old boys" in the sheriff's office are. From the day Heidi went missing, they dropped the ball.

By not having the state police involved, they already knew what would happen, inevitably. She would be murdered, in what way? We will only know when people decide to talk, in another 10+ years.

The main question asked is, was Gary innocent? Given the facts and witnesses of the abduction, you will find yourself spiraling down the rabbit hole!

This is an amazing book. The scary part of not knowing people in your small upstate county, is that you could be next to them in a bar, or grocery store and have no clue you are next to a possible murderer.

Many, many reviews coming across the internet over Peebles and Obreins book. It's going to grow and grow and grow. Do you know why Oakes? Because it's not you in control. It's the good Lord above using his people to do his work and you are in his way. The best thing that can ever come of this is the resignation of Gregory Oakes and his side kick Mark Moody.

Hilton you came in to this late. But in turn you have the power to fix this mess. To apologize to the public for the wrong "They"have created not you, to weed out those in your department and other departments who violated every law possible to pull of the crime of the century. You took this on when you decided to run for office. There is no accountability. The people know this. The comments on line stretch from dirty cops, to incompetence, to this day all of what you preached about to win as Sheriff no accountability, no integrity. Until you fight for the innocent, the people in the community who no longer have a voice.These departments will forever be known as the incompetent, dirty, Oswego County Good ol' boys
More comments left online;
Gary's story is now across the country.
And the cops still haven't taken any blame for this shit. They kept an innocent guy locked up till he died for something he most likely didn't do.

Upon reading Lisa Peebles book. I never noticed the out right lie Martha, Heidi's aunt tells. She claims at the age of 15 Heidi drove to a party and left a one year old child in the back seat of the vehicle. How is it a 15 year old obtains a license to operate a vehicle on the road in NY state? If she did then whose vehicle did she use? Seeing as she just got her first job at 15 at the Golden Fish restaurant. Does anyone in Heidi family, tell the truth?? Did Martha ever think before she spoke?? So Martha tell us whose vehicle Heidi would have been driving at the time? Did her parents allow her to drive under age?? Must be Martha forgot how old Heidi was when telling these tales.

The first step they take are threats. After the threats, if they do not seem to be doing their jobs, they will move on to threatening your family or close friends as they stalk you AND your family. In the end it is an accident or suicide that gets their job done. You are dealing with organized crime. Too much for Oakes or the Sheriffs to handle. As Bohrer says, it's still too dangerous. It's called RICO.
"This is just the beginning", one commenter writes..hopefully the beginning of many arrests.

 The trouble with the rat race is if you win you're still a rat
Lili Tomlin

Four way stops!
OMG, What is going on with all the four way stops in the city of Oswego? As I was driving throughout the west side recently I was alarmed by all the four ways popping up all over the place. W. Seneca & Liberty, West Seneca & 5th, W. Seneca & 2nd. Lake St & W.8th, Lake St. & W.3rd. W. 5th & Cayuga, W.5th & Niagara, E. 10th & Albany and I am sure there are even more that I haven't come across yet. Does the City have a contract with the garages that do brake jobs or what? Why not just put four way stops at every intersection now and just get it over with at once instead of adding more and more every week? This idea may not be very far from the truth by looking at what is going on. I suggest being on your toes people because you never know where or when another STOP sign is going to pop up out of nowhere. Will Bridge St be next for the four ways? Time will tell!

E. Utica street hill at Duer
So after a 3 car/truck nasty accident, ( Friday mid afternoon) with cars driven up poles, into yards, police and tow trucks.. and at least 1vehicle totaled , it would be well advised for cars traveling down Utica Street hill, east bound, to not be gawking at the junk out for sale located all down the north end of Duer as it Meets Utica, grotesquely displayed in a small residential corner by the antique shop . Be aware of the vehicle in front of you slowing and, /or turning right (south) at the last second onto Duer!
This shop seems to think nothing of causing rubbernecking drivers to run others off the road, or jam traffic on tiny Duer Street where at least 8 small children live and play , putting the community at risk so he can make a buck. His location does not provide adequate parking, nor does he work with neighbors or respect their yards and personal space. A business in a small neighborhood should have concern for local residents. However this shop has very poor business acumen or lack there of. All for a bunch of junk.
Alderman Walker, you really need to do something about this hazard.

"In a school essay, Heidi described herself as a tomboy. She used to help two neighborhood boys catch snakes- until the day they used the snakes to try to intimidate her. She stood up for herself. She wrote in the essay that she became outgoing when her parents used to take her and her sister to nudist camps as children. The Allen girls kept their clothes on, but the parents did not.
"I thought it was boring because it was a bunch of naked people!" Heidi wrote. I think this is part of the reason why I am not a shy person.

Oswego Yatch Club wants more money in a dispute with the City of Oswego.

The yacht club, in a court filing last year argued "monetary damages are not an adequate remedy for the city's breach" of the lease, claiming the property "offers unique access to Oswego's only deep-water marina" and the "location is critical for maintaining OYC's public presence and recruiting new members."

"OYC's monetary damages from the city's unilateral attempt to terminate the lease are difficult, if not impossible to calculate," the filing stated."

OYC members told councilors last year there was no reason the club could not co-exist with the city's plans for a waterfront overhaul.​

This is a LIE! OYC cannot co-exist with the city. OYC proved this, by putting up signs at the entrance to the to the old "coal trestle," a.k.a. (International Pier) Which gave the impression that the property belonged to OYC. OYC has done nothing for anyone. And doesn't have any right to demand anything.

Barlow’s Vision for the City is a Long Term Disaster
As we continue along with the Barlow Administration and Know Nothing Council, the end result may look like things are getting done, but in reality it is going to cost Oswego in a Big way. Yes, it appears that Barlow has done some things for Oswego, but they are very minor and will not be a net financial gain for the residents that are too ignorant to understand what is going on, or are just not paying attention.

First of all, Barlow's administration and the people he has hired are jokes. The law department, with that joke Caraccioli, has cost us hundreds of thousands of dollars because of his lack of understanding the law. The Code department is as big of a joke as is the law department, and if you are well connected enough, like Avery or the Broadwell's, you can break all the city code regulations that you would like. Fortunately, these are just short term corruption problems and can be corrected if we put a real mayor in place.

The major issue is: Low Cost Housing. This will come back to bite you right in the ass. So far there have been three (3) Low Cost Housing Units that have or are being built. (1) East 1st and Cayuga, (2) East 1st and Utica, (3) West 2nd and Schuyler. We already have Hamilton Homes, The Pontiac, The old Seaway Supply Building, and the City Line Road (Drug rehab) development. Barlow and this "go along with anything council" has allowed these three new huge low cost housing buildings to be built with "Grant Money" for people from the outside. Shortly there will be an influx of welfare recipient's families filling these buildings and you will be seeing a dramatic increase in crime and these people walking the streets of Oswego. On top of that, these units are tax exempt because they are built with grant money, so the assessed city value will go up and you will have an increase in your property taxes because there will be no tax revenue coming from them and the dollars will be paid by you , not them. Their kids will go to our schools and get free breakfast and free lunch and you will pay higher school taxes because there will be an increase in overall costs and increased teachers will be hired to accommodate the increase in school population.

This is what Barlow is going to leave behind and the taxpayers of the City of Oswego will be the recipients of the mess he gave us. They will all be out of office and gone and the next administration is going to be stuck with the mess and probably have to hire more police to keep an eye on things. Thanks Billy and the suck-up council. Where is the industry and jobs? NOT

In response to the Palladium Times’ article “City, Port remain in talks”
I feel as though I need to address a few key errors that were written in the Palladium Times article regarding the ongoing war between the Mayor of Oswego and the Port of Oswego. The name of the article itself is actually a lie. I was recently privy to a conversation that included a few employees that work at the port, who have first-hand knowledge on the subject. From what I have gathered form these credible sources, much of that article is exaggerated, inaccurate, or is a downright lie. First and foremost, wherever the Mayor states that he is "in talks with" or is "working together with" the port is a blatant LIE. He was invited to do so but declined to show up and zero attempt was made on his part to enter into any sort of discussion that might have resolved the issue. Apparently it's easier to spend our tax dollars on a lawsuit than it is to come to the table to try to work it out. Additionally, the article is using confusing terminology such as "grain storage facility" which is misleading since the building in question is actually a warehouse, not meant to simply store grain. The building in question is also NOT "50 percent taller than the initial design." That is a gross exaggeration of truth. This is again because the Mayor is using the wrong terminology and mixing up what portion of the project he is even talking about. The change in the size of the warehouse was, as I understand it from my sources, a change that was necessary due to unforeseen circumstances and the port followed all of the proper protocol when addressing that change and in modifying the structure, which was unavoidable. Furthermore, there was absolutely zero misleading information that was handed out on the port's behalf either to its "officials" or to the public. The port is a state entity and as such has no choice other than to follow the very specific procedures set forth by the state of NY for any alterations or construction that they commence. That the city should imply otherwise is simply more of Mayor Barlow's obvious propensity for spinning whatever false tale suits his current cause. However, a fact that he would do well to remember....the truth will out in the end.

We choose our joys and sorrows long before we experience them.
Khalil Gibran

Carona Virus
Did you feel the ground shake from the wave of uproarious laughter which swept across the country when trump named Mike Pence as the man in charge of coordinating the country’s response to the corona virus?

In yet another incoherent rambling speech, which basically summarized many of his previous uninformed and just plain stupid comments, Trump said nothing that would lead the educated public to believe our government had any idea of how to deal with the Corona Virus. He continued to play down the seriousness implying that in a short period of time there would only be five cases of the virus in the US. He also said there was a vaccine being developed that could be ready in a couple months.


Only minutes later an official who knew what he was talking about explained that the most advanced vaccine candidate was about two months from finishing its phase one trial and another trial for efficacy, (will it really work) taking at least eight months would follow. Typically phase one trials are one year. So it would be at least a year, best case scenario, before the vaccine could be available and that is if there are no adverse side effects and if it is granted special approval allowing it to go to market without Phase three testing to determine what dosage is safe for what part of the population. So if all the stars do not fall into alignment it could easily be two even two and a half years before the vaccine makes it to the public. Probably the best hope is Gilead Sciences which is starting two stage three trials of its Remdesivir that was previously tested in people infected with Ebola. Other drugs marketed by Gilead include Biktarvy, Descovy, Truvada, Epclusa, Harvoni, Sovaldi, and Tamiflu.

Something else to consider is the manufacture of the vaccine. I do not know if it is true but I heard long ago most flue type vaccine is now made in China. Surgical masks, gowns and other medical supplies that are needed are also largely made in China. With a population of 1.4 billion who do you think the Chinese will make vaccine and masks for first.?

There needs to be a world wide effort to take over the manufacture of all necessary medical supplies currently made in China. There are too many eggs in that one basket but that is thinking too far out of the box for Trump and his worshipers.

Nursing homes and assisted living.
I worked at Pontiac for 3 years. Please oh please whatever you do, do NOT consider putting your loved there. It is a death trap. Verna who was found responsible for 3 of the 20 deaths in 3 months is now at Bishops Commons. I also worked there and saw them isolate a woman in her room, except when her family was around. It was horrible. Her dementia was too advanced to belong there, but seeing she was a widow of a judge with lots of cash they didnt want to let her go. Both places are horrible. And The Gardens is so disorganized I lasted a day. I recommend Syracuse Home in B'ville. And Buckley Landing in North Syr. For assisted living. Its a drive but worth it for the care .

It would be easier to name the few good ones than all the bad ones. When the Oswego Hospital had an in-house nursing facility it was very good. When they opened Seneca Hell Manor and moved everything up there it turned into a horror show. It was run by a short fat little blonde bitch. I think her name was McGinnis or McGillis. She lied to the families 24-7.
I have only met one person who had something good to say about Pontic since the day it opened.

I personally dealt with a place in Liverpool called Birchwood, I think it is now called Elderwood which was supposed to be the best place to go for rehab. There was ariconditioning only on the first floor. You had to fight with the staff to get the minimum care and treatment prescribed by the referring physician and the beds were manually operated. So if you were able to get out of bed an operate the hand crank at the foot of the bed you were OK otherwise you were screwed.


Loretto on the south end of Syracuse was another hell hole. The staff there did not walk they shuffeled. Their rehab was a joke and the place was filthy.

I visited Sunrise in Oswego back in the late 90s looking for a place to locate a friend. The halls were full of people in wheelchairs hoping to catch a breeze from the fans placed in front of exit doors, which were covered by homemade wooden screens. The stench of urine was everywhere. Before I left I was told how they were going to install air conditioners that would be available at a small additional cost. That is the same bullshit story they were telling the day that place opened.
I went to St. Lukes once around 1998 looking to place my mother for rehab. There I dealt with Another lying bitch named Tara Fitzgibbons. She was cherry-picking looking for patients they could make the most money off of. That practice was totally illegal. I am still waiting for her to return my call. Oddly enough a few years later, when my mother was emptying her safe deposit box at City Savings now Pathfinder, who did we have to deal with but Tara. She was supposed to be in charge of that department but one of the underlings had to explain to her what needed to be done. Then a month later she tried to bill my mother for the key which had been returned the day the box was emptied and the rental terminated. Once again a situation had to be rectified because of her incompetence.

In my experience there is no such thing as a good nursing home just some that are worse than others. At their best they give children a false sense of Mom or Dad being cared for in their final years. In reality they are wharehouses for the sick and dying. Their only goal is to make as much money as they possibly can off of each resident while providing the bare minimum in care.

He is a worthless lowlife piece of shit and nothing would make me happier than to hear he got hit by a bus and cheated out of what ever time he had left.


The only possible thing which could, trump, that is if Marine One crashed and burned with Donnie and his entire in-bread moron family onboard.

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 caught.

"I am not an enemy of the negro, we want him here among us; he is the only laboring class we have."
Nathan Bedford Forrest


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.

“Thieves respect property. They merely wish the property to become their property that they may more perfectly respect it.”
G. K. Chesterton

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.
                                                                                                                    July 2/14

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.

Ambulance Numbers

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 departments.
