    Defensive posture changed?

    Cardboard cutouts of a person with a gun in each window. Recording of loud, angry dogs barking playing through the outdoor speakers. Put my kids out in chairs in front of the house (they would scare anyone away.) Paid the police to drive by the house every 20 minutes or so. Took the tank out...

    Making Bread W/O An Oven - Ideas?

    Should be easy. If you have 2 cast iron pans of the same size, invert one over the other and place on the stove. The area inside of the 2 pans will act as an oven. It would work best if you have a thermometer to monitor the temp and adjust as required.

    Mine is in in her last semester at Binghamton. She lives off campus and since no cases have been reported, has decided to stay in Binghamton for now. What has her most upset is that her graduation ceremony could be cancelled.

    Area opposition mounts to FUAC proposal for T’way to take over Bridge Authority

    There are several petitions and local politicians are all opposed to the merger. Regardless, the more people object and speak out, the better the chance of preventing Cuomo from getting his own way.

    Area opposition mounts to FUAC proposal for T’way to take over Bridge Authority

    Oppose the merger. It is a Cuomo money grab. Write your NY politicians or better yet, attend the open hearing tonight at 7pm at the Poughkeepsie Grand hotel and voice your opinion.

    Area opposition mounts to FUAC proposal for T’way to take over Bridge Authority

    Great idea, merge the Bridge Authority with the Thruway Authority then, raise the bridge authority tolls from $1.50 to 4 or 5 dollars and use the extra money to pay for the Tappan Zee Bridge. Why shouldn't the Hudson Valley residents pay for a bridge somewhere else... Its the great NYS way...

    Murder in Kingston

    I grew up in Kingston. Back in the day, everyone considered Poughkeepsie a little worse than Kingston, Newburgh a little worse than Poughkeepsie and points south worse than Newburgh. As the years went by, the new norm for Kingston was what Poughkeepsie had been like, the new norm for...

    Opinions wanted on double Barrel Shotguns

    I have a Stoeger Uplander side by side. I always liked the style. Price was not bad but some would question the quality. I recently saw a Stoeger coach in stainless. Nice looking but probably kicks like a mule.

    Area opposition mounts to FUAC proposal for T’way to take over Bridge Authority

    The Bridge Authority has operated in the Black for nearly 80 years. Tolls are lower today than they were when the Mid Hudson bridge first opened. It was 90 cents to cross the bridge but the toll was charged in each direction. All money from the tolls goes to the Bridge Authority and pays for...

    Constitutionality conversation.

    History has shown plenty of disrespect for laws. As the masses sway back and forth, a majority can come to feel a law is unjust and through popular opinion, come to ignore it or its original meaning. It is not how things should be but it happens. Back in the day, in somewhere-usa, there was a...
