There aren't enough police officers to catch all the incredibly stupid and dangerous drivers who try to beat the light. I have come to a stop while the light was still yellow only to have the car behind me go around me and through the intersection.
Because the action of these drivers are so dangerous, I support the use of the red light cameras.
County Legislature needs to earn their salary by conducting research into salaries of comparable counties and impose a fair salary.
Why does everyone seem so touchy about the idea that the police chief might have resigned because Lovely is going to be the new mayor...or the idea that Lovely may have replaced him if he did not resign?
The Danieles , of course, don't do much without their Comida money and their past use of Comida funds are questionable....job creation with an amphibious plane dock???
Development is destruction when it comes to the environment. If the goal is to protect the environment, especially when it comes to the expansion of something, then the expansion would not happen. But it is never about environmental protection.
It is all about a compromise between the environment and someone's desire for money. When environmental standards are compromised in a deal that favors lining someone's pockets with money, the environment always loses.
I'm not exactly sure what I think of the idea of local universities taking over some schools. But I know exactly what to think of Vargas. He has now thrown in the towel and admitted he can't fix Rochester schools. That may be a good first step, though I don't know if I can get over this immense failure.
I think the next step should be for Vargas to decline accepting any further salary as he puts this plan into action. After that, he should resign.
The latest unemployment rate in Atlantic City was 12.6%. The most recent unemployment rate in Las Vegas was 9.2%. The most recent unemployment rate in PA was 7.7% and drum roll please...the unemployment rate in NY was 7.6%.
I mentioned Atlantic City and Las Vegas because of their high profile status as casino gambling meccas. I mentioned Pennsylvania because of the fracking's promise of jobs. These unemployment figures kind of shoot down the lies told about fracking and casinos as job saviors. Yes, of course they create jobs, but many things create jobs.
And have you been to Atlantic City lately? It is still the tale of two worlds...on one side, there is the glitz of the casinos and right across the street are the homeless in extreme poverty.
Fracking and casinos are not solutions, they are problems and threats.
