  4. Joseph A Heller, Jr. 1937-2019

    Now that is one hell of an obit!
  5. Joseph A Heller, Jr. 1937-2019

    When I first read that the other day I wasn't positive if it was a tribute or a "good riddance" piece. His daughter Monique wrote it and the news actually interviewed her about it. It is quite the tribute.

    Have you ever felt a deep loss over the death of someone you never met? Read about this true piece of God's work. https://rwwfh.com/tribute/details/1172/Joseph-Heller-Jr/obituary.html#content-start

  8. I have no problem with pulling out of that area and leaving them to their own misery. This idea of spreading democracy is a joke. They don't understand it or don't want it, so let them live in the Stone Age for all I care. But only after every single SOB that had something to do with attacking us is worm food.
  9. Forgive my skepticism, but I think it's more likely he's looking for a feather to stick in that 2020 Election cap.
  10. While this is my gut reaction.....I don't believe that killing the currents heads would prevent new "leaders" from stepping forward to continue the carnage. We've been "toppling" regimes forever.....and there is always a next in line. I kind of think the best "negotiation" is to leave them to their own devices on their own turf with a clear warning that if/when they cross the line with aggression against us or our (solid) allies - we will terminate them. Sort of like vermin. If they are damaging our property and invading our space - they will meet with a swift death. But as long as they stay out where they are not affecting our lives. Even if they are harming each other, we don't go hunting them out to exterminate them or "resue" them from each other.
  11. Most likely you’re looking at the site right now and wondering what happened. A short while ago I announced I would be making some radical changes to the site. You see when I decided to take a little break from social media this past Summer, it dawned on me that the increased amount of work being put into the site hadn’t really paid off in increased readership. So, rather than try to keep up with reporting pertinent daily news besides arrest reports and press releases, I decided to make some changes. The one gem of this site in my opinion has been the Community Voices section, written by people from across the region. There’s been several times in the past where the idea to make that the featured section of this site and now seems like the perfect time to do so. So we’re going to change format and make Community Voices and the forums, the two features that I think stand out in the local media market and simply can’t be beat. Community Writers now moves to the forefront of the site, giving it the attention I believe it deserves. The forums also will once again become a larger focus of the site. For several reasons, many of the sections will once again be returned to “Members Only”. Consumer surveys done this Summer indicate there’s a wider audience who visit the site often to read what everyone is saying but do not take the time to register an account. I realize that may not be a popular move. But registering for an account is free and requires less information than many other sites. Plus, it’s only fair to those who take the time to contribute their thoughts to ask that others sign in at the very least. And if it encourages increased participation, all the better. As for social media… You know, it’s funny, but five years ago as I was trying to build an audience on outlets like Facebook, the idea of backing away from it on the brink of a landmark number of followers would have struck me as insane. But frankly it’s not really that important to me anymore. Facebook likes and followers has not led to a similar amount of daily readers for this site. Certainly not enough to make it a priority. And honestly, I am tired of the rancor that has become so much a part of the social media experience. So the social media accounts will remain for the purpose of promoting our writers’ work as well as promoting community events as a public service. But that’s it. The focus will be here on the site. So that’s why all the shifting and moving you see taking place. In closing, I want to thank the people who have contributed to this site and supported this endeavor from the day the “OPEN” sign turned on. Without you folks, there’s no way this site would exist and it’s because of you I continue to keep it going.
  12. I would imagine that the $194.3 million per year pharmaceutical lobby plays no small part in vilifying and unleashing the CDC and FDA hounds on their competition. If Pfizer offers their “Nicotrol Inhaler” for nicotine replacement at an exorbitant price in lieu of their psychotropic smoking cessation prescription drugs….they are providing a life-saving product that insurance companies can be required to pay for. When vape companies offer reasonably priced nicotine replacement options directly to consumers --- pure evil.
  13. Vaping has been demonstrated to be the most effective way to quit cigarettes. And for people who don't quit it is a less toxic product than cigarettes which contain all sorts of nasty chemicals. The left has been on a campaign against these products since day one, too afraid they are going to cut into the revenue derived from those addicted to cigarettes is probably one reason. These problems have not been associated with regulated products. To blame regulated vape products for problems from caused from drug addicts hacking this technology, is like blaming automatic rifles for mass shootings.
  14. I'd prefer a "secret summit" where they arrive at Camp David expecting to be wined and dined but are instead shot and dumped somewhere like the garbage they are. Sigh... "winning hearts and minds" doesn't win wars.
  15. How do you get out of a war? You either negotiate for peace or you decisively win. No one has the guts to win, so unless they can be negotiated with this 18 year war is going to go on until the next limp wristed a-hole in the White House pulls another Iraq and unilaterally leave. At least Trump tried to get out of this without giving them the victory.
  16. Inhaling something besides O2 and getting sick? I for one am completely floored. ( I need to find a sarcasm smiley. )
  17. On Sept 6, 2019, the CDC announced an investigation notice regarding the 450 plus cases of lung illness and five confirmed deaths associated with the use of e-cigarettes. Cases have been identified in 33 states, including New York State. Many patients report using ecigarette products with liquids that contain cannabinoid products, such as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Vitamin E acetate is one key focus of the NYS Department of Health’s investigation, although the investigation has not identified any specific substance or e-cigarette product that is linked to all cases. Symptoms of Lung Illness: Patients in this investigation have reported symptoms, including: Cough, shortness of breath or chest pain Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea Fatigue, fever or weight loss. Recommendations for the Public: While the investigation is ongoing, the CDC, FDA, and NYS Commissioner of Health recommend not using e-cigarette products. Anyone using vape products should never use unregulated products purchased "off the street" or modify vape products on their own. If you do use e-cigarette products and experience the above symptoms, seek medical care promptly or call your local poison control center at 1-800-222-1222. The CDC, FDA, state and local health departments, and other clinical and public health partners continue to investigate this outbreak. As the short-term and long-term impacts of e-cigarette use continue to be examined, local towns, cities, and counties can adopt policies to reduce usage rates in their municipalities. For more information, contact the Chemung County Health Department at (607)-737-2856.
  18. Maybe it's just the day and I'm trying to get through it, but.... WHY IN THE HELL ARE WE EVEN THINKING ABOUT NEGOTIATING INSTEAD OF KILLING THEM?!?!?
  19. Lake Street Properties To Be Renovated

    I know what you're saying Johnny, and ideally the money would stay in our pockets and the free market would take care of the issue. However since THAT aint happening, isn't the money better off coming back here than going downstate?
  20. Lake Street Properties To Be Renovated

    That's $321,000 average cost per apartment, mostly 1 bedroom. In what type of sane world does this make financial sense? Oh wait, they will be getting free money. hmmm, I wonder where that money is coming from? BOHICA

  22. Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the new Upstate Cellular Coverage Task Force, which will develop potential solutions and policies to address the lack of cell service in rural and remote parts of upstate New York. The task force, which the Governor originally proposed as part of the 2019 State of the State, will be administered by Empire State Development. "Every New Yorker should be able to access a stable cell connection, yet our upstate regions have struggled for too long to make the connections that are vital to everyday life and commerce," Governor Cuomo said. "Today we're leading the way forward by establishing a task force of cellular service experts, elected representatives and environmental advocates who will develop concrete policies and help to ensure service is provided and infrastructure for it is built in a sustainable way." The task force consists of industry experts, community leaders, government officials, environmental representatives, and other key stakeholders and has retained Alvarez & Marsal as an advisor. The first meeting of the task force is today. The lack of upstate cellular network coverage undermines economic growth, impacts communications and safety, and inhibits adoption of smart municipal infrastructure. In the Adirondack Park Region and other rural upstate areas with large coverage gaps, the issue of cellular deployment has been a major local concern. The Task Force will review existing policies, potential constraints, and available resources and funding sources including federal support, to develop implementable recommendations for enhancing cellular coverage in unserved areas including the Adirondacks and Catskills. New York State has made historic investments in infrastructure and broadband availability. In 2015, the Governor launched the $500 million New NY Broadband Program to achieve statewide high-speed Internet access. After full implementation of the program, more than 99 percent of New Yorkers will have access to wired broadband.

  24. Winter Soldier is the 2nd one I think. I did rent it on Amazon for a few bucks I think, but it's on cable quite a bit too. You just get commercials.
  25. For some reason, I missed the second Captain America - and can't seem to find it free on Netflix, Prime or Dish Anywhere at the moment. I'm sure it (and Captain Marvel) will be available before End Game
  26. Thor & Captain America movies were my favorites.
  27. Pine Valley Music Festival

    I just looked into this a little more and realized it was their FIRST ONE! So there was some seriously good organizers working on this to make it happen so well. I saw a clip of Still Kickin' and was pretty impressed.
  28. Thinking about it more, I don't think any of the other Marvel movies were bad so you could still watch them for the entertainment alone. I wasn't a HUGE fan of the Thor series, but "Ragnorak" was really good.
