    Another death in Broome county Jail

    I think it was Brian Epstein.

    The Hunting of Dan Livingston

    Never underestimate the vindictiveness of City Republicans in their effort to keep all actions silent. They HATED that Livingston posted videos of council meetings on YouTube. That will end in January and we'll go back to "transcripts of that meeting cannot be found" responses.

    The Little White Church in Conklin

    For sure. I worked South of the tracks on Powers Rd and in 2006 and we were sweating the water lapping the rails and our factory on the other side. I had to drive to State Line Road and back to get there. Lost power and went outside to watch the poor folks North of the tracks lose the battle to keep the water at bay. Nice dog park as well.

    New Assessments in Broome?

    He had his own tax assessment reduced 27%. Must be he forgot about the rest of Binghamtonians. "It's good to be 'da king." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8z8SpgmF0sA

    New Assessments in Broome?

    Broome? Hard to say. It depends on the township, village or city. Binghamton? Not for 26 years. And don't look for it with the current administration.

    Heavy rain in Broome. Where is Debbie Preston?

    Perhaps she has a job with ServPro cleaning wet carpets because she certainly sucked.

    May God rest Dr. Aristaks K. Very sorry for your family's loss. He left an amazing legacy.

    Protesters at Columbus parade

    Worng place. Wrong time. Wrong approach. All for the First Amendment, but it isn't a license to screw up other people's freedoms and rights.

    NYS new license plates

    I suppose if the DMV mails me the new ones at no charge with a pre-paid envelope for me to return the old ones I would be willing. But I do not think putting up with the attitude at the DMV after a long wait just to have the ability to pay $25 to replace my fine-condition current plates is a choice I would make on my own.
  10. I'm sure Jason folded each letter and licked the envelope before pulling a stamp off the roll and applying it. Not the first time some underling selected the wrong form letter and address file link in a relational database. Not the last. Would have been worse if someone with a dead kid got a letter about free tuition. I got a rejection letter annually for three years from NYSEG after applying once for a job there. Thanks guys. How about rubbing lemon juice in the wound?

    What does this mean?

    You weren't smoking or talking on a cell phone while pumping gasoline, were you?

    Fat shaming at Forever 21

    Or fat . . . bitch.
  13. That's still your taxes paid if you live in New York State. Just a little less local. Municipal, State, Federal . . . they all spend our taxes sent.
  14. I believe this is IN ADDITION to the earlier skullduggery announced last February of having his property appraisal reduced 27% without submitting the state form or having a hearing; like a law-abiding citizen would be required to do. To say you don't have to pay back-taxes due because it wasn't your "mistake? Try that with the IRS; or a "corrected" City water billing. http://www.wicz.com/story/39920735/former-city-employee-alleges-binghamton-mayor-is-cutting-his-property-tax-bill

    H20 treatment plant 2019

    The Water Treatment Plant is separate from the much larger and more involved Wastewater Treatment Plant. Who runs the Wastewater Plant? The two mayors (Bing & JC) and the four other JC Trustees and seven City Council made all the decisions for the last "several decades of mismanagement" (since 1959) and they will continue to do that. The Owners have always been in control of the capital spending yet have no idea about biological treatment or have anything like engineering/science backgrounds. Adding another for-profit layer to the daily management will not change that. And the same group of elected and appointed non-science folks will decide on who should do the contract management. See a pattern here? It will be the same methodology that selected the last construction plan that, now, the Mayor claims would never have worked had they even paid attention to the shoddy construction. So . . . what has changed? Some of the same names, definitely the titles, will likely be on the selection committee these years later. They are not looking at privatization. They are looking at "contract management" and the Owners still pay the capital, the principal on the loan that now exceeds operating costs, and own the plant and remain in charge . . . if not in control. Don't confuse the daily operations and plant managers with the Owners and Board who make the investment and construction decisions. "Political Science" is not really a science. That's why it his an arts degree and not a science degree.
