I say WFN for Mayor, Fire chief, Superintendent of schools, President of the school board, President of the United States or for that matter Supreme Exulted Ruler as she seems to be an expert on all that is going on in the world. Strange though how she offers only Negatives and absolutely no Positives. She really needs to take her turn at the helm of something such as chief of the busy bodies!

Socialism is a scareword they have hurled at every advance the people have made in the last 20 years. Socialism is what they called public power. Socialism is what they called social security. Socialism is what they called farm price supports. Socialism is what they called bank deposit insurance. Socialism is what they called the growth of free and independent labor organizations. Socialism is their name for almost anything that helps all the people. HARRY TRUMAN, speech, Oct. 10, 1952

I agree, the board of education is NOT the problem here. The corrupt administration is! Too much of our school's budget is going to people who don't really care about the students, they are more concerned about lining their pockets when they cannot even perform the jobs they are paid to do! If they were doing their jobs, finances wouldn't be an issue.

Another interesting tidbit about how the NCSD wastes money. A few years back, the director of transportation left his position. The school offered the head of buildings and grounds 20,000 more a year to do both jobs. Shortly after that, they found a new director of transportation. They STILL pay the head of buildings and grounds that 20,000 for work he doesn't do! So now, instead of making 70,000 a year for just barking orders, he makes 90,000!

Captain America Greene's EMS is completely separate from the fire side, they do have staffing but I'm not sure from when to when. As for Norwich since the call volume is so high with EMS I would think 24/7 EMS coverage would make more sense but fire not so much.

To the man from Norwich. there other states that have paid firefighters from 6a to 6p. At 6p, the volunteers take over. So I totally agree with you. Does Greene's paid staff end work at like 6 or 7p & then the volunteers take over.? So I don't see why Norwich can't do this either.

I agree with MFN. Norwich fire department should do what Greene does with their EMS. Eliminate the overtime for the fire side of it. And yes almost all calls are for EMS ambulance service. I think it’d be easy to see that the fire department side could then be taken over by volunteers very easily.

FACT CHECK: Trump said earlier this month that “there is no law" that requires Treasury to hand over any tax returns that the Ways and Means Committee wants. The tax disclosure law has been on the books since 1924. Trump is the first modern president to refuse to disclose any tax information, falsely claiming that he can’t because he’s under audit.

Norwich xxxx bus driver. You can’t be forced to resign. He did something very wrong and got caught. For the Bus Garage Supervisor to get in his face I’m very very wrong. Your defense is proving the point that something is being covered up.

You want overtime down at the fire house, split the fire and EMS like Greene did. Have paid firefighters cover from 6am to 6pm... then your overtime will be gone, and more than likely your paid firefighters cause the city would (hopefully) realize the call volume is not there for paid firefighters. Why are they even called paid firefighters when they run EMS calls 95% of the time?

Trump hosted Twitter CEO Dorsey in the Oval Office for a closed-door meeting, during which the pResident spent an inordinate amount of time complaining about lost Twitter followers. The Twitter chief, for his part, tried to reassure the president that the company’s staff merely wants his follower count to be as bot-free as possible. This is what Trump was preoccupied with Tuesday. Trump repeatedly griped about how Obama has had more Twitter followers than he has. Petty little man!

WFN you are WRONG. The bus driver was FORCED to resign. R.W. pushed a resignation letter across the desk and forced him to sign. This is becasue the bus garage supervisor got in his face & he fought back. Don't assume you KNOW the details. Don't let rumors influence your skewed perception. NCSD is mismanaged by the two bully clowns. If a supervisor went nose to nose with I'd react the same way.

Trump’s tariffs on imported washing machines, imposed at the behest of Whirlpool, pumped $82 million into the U.S. Treasury. But American consumers footed the bill, and more, paying a whopping $1.5 billion in increased costs passed along to them last year, according to new research. That’s in line with other research. A study last month found that the president’s trade war cost U.S. businesses, and consumers, $3 billion a month last year in higher prices.

Some Democrats are afraid of impeachment because after he was impeached Clinton was more popular than before. Because throughout the impeachment process we learned that Clinton had not committed any of the multiple crimes the Republicans first talked about; the only thing he was guilty of was having an affair and lying to cover it up. Half of American married people have done the same; that's a tough one to sell to people as a reason to remove a president.

I would think the Norwich audit would show the mismanagement of funds at the fire department. The salaries at that place are outrageous. More and more people and businesses are leaving. This town just does not have the resources to pay out multiple six figure salaries at the fire department. Time for some major restructuring there.

After talking to several Pharsalia residents and relatives over past few weeks. Many are convinced the Town of Pharsalia and East Pharsalia are dying or dead towns. Empty, vacant run down buildings, houses, general store closed years ago.The local bar can't even support the local drunks and is closed. Crooked town supervisor, and board that is incompenent have lead to all of this state. Some are considering that it is time to sell and move, they have had enough .

You sure shocked a ton of people, Dennis Brown. What you did to your friends on the board was wrong too. All been friends for years. You were trusted!! No wonder our town has stayed like a pig pen. Equipment so old and shot. While you were living high on the hog. Time to sell the palette factory and pay back our town. Still in shock and shame on you.

Another Trump "accomplishment." Tariffs on washing machines brought 82 million to U.S. treasury, cost consumers 1.5 billion. Created 1800 jobs at a cost of 817,000 dollars per job. More facts that don't matter, right? Yeah, go Trump.

“Keep complaining about President Trump. We love it.“ if that were true you wouldn’t be here posting about it. Trump is a proven liar and self serving con man who couldn’t give a hoot about you. He uses divisive rhetoric as a way to fan the flames of your worst instincts. He does this to keep you whipped up and to deflect from the fact that he is only interested in enriching himself at your expense.

Tax payers of New Berlin wake up and ask what New Berlin is getting for its tax money. Streets going bad , water system needs big improvment , bridges caveing in , fire station falling down , village records cannot be found , big piles of lawn cleanings setting on the curbs for weeks not getting picked up , streets not swept after winter , lack of employes working , tax base way out of wack and lots more.

I suppose the arrest and results of Dennis Brown will be swept under the rug. Of course he "claims" to have a life threatening illness, Gee, Dennis, didn't stop you from stealing from us though did it?? Healthy enough to be a criminal now with a record.

If you noticed at all. The top 15 richest states in the USA are democratic. They are the states paying the highest taxes. They are the states making the property owners mad. You don't have to be poor or middle class to see how much Trump is helping the poorer states. Not to worry President Trump Rural Ameica is with you.

Keep complaining about President Trump. We love it. He has done more for this country in less that 3 years than the past 5 presidents have done. It must really be upsetting to you that we have a President that cares about the united states of America. I as others plan to work moving President Trumps policys forward.

Every time Donald Trump says, "No obstruction," it's a reminder that he obviously hasn't read the Mueller report. And he's counting on you not having read it, either.

Just Remember: Benghazi: 950 days, 0 indictments, 0 charges Mueller: 674 days, 37 indictments, 199 charges With 14 Investigations spawned and still ongoing. Found 11 instances of likely obstruction....FACTS are FACTS!

There is a golden opportunity awaiting all the trumpers here who constantly complain about immigrants and high taxes in New York. The United Constitutional Patriots are looking for a few good men (and women?) down on the border. Live in a sunny climate with low taxes! Carry big guns and wear camo! Mistreat poor, desperate brown people! Be with other white folk looking superior! Remember: god, guns & guts are what make this country great! MAGAts Unite!

These facts are not in dispute: 1. Russia actively worked to get the presidential candidate of its choosing elected president. 2. That candidate and his campaign was actively aware of these efforts by Russia and--at a bare minimum--did nothing to dissuade or stop these efforts. 3. When an investigation about these efforts from Russia was taken up, the candidate--now President--undertook multiple efforts in an attempt to impede the investigation. Neither side can deny as being fact at this point.

" Traveled through The Village of New Berlin today and wow what a mess Genesee St. is. Broke an exhaust system in one of the large holes when my car bottomed out. There used to be some pride in what kind of streets New Berlin had." Genesee street is also State Route 80. Talk to the state of NY about its condition.
