County Treasurer's office mess

We just heard that the county's chief accountant Robin McMillen failed her civil service test.

Not bad for someone who's making $77,000 per year.

And we heard the books are late being closed for 2014. How are the legislators supposed to know where they're at and how much they can spend without a fiscal accounting?

We also heard that the office is a mess, period. 

Of course, somehow, someway, they will get creative to keep McMillen on. They can change the title and pull a Matt Bacon, making the position non-competitive.

We've been told by several legislators that McMillen was Legislator Terry Wilbur's choice, so be sure to thank him, and of course, don't forget Baby Backus, because no one gets hired without his blessing.

It should make you all sick to think that you're paying for this incompetent clown.

County highway

We hear that the time sheets and GPS records for one current and one retired county highway department employees are in Albany under review. We did hear it from a good source but haven't confirmed it.

The GPS records take a long time to go through as the system pings quite often.

On another note, we are still hearing chatter that the Pulaski Garage is going to close for good. The Parish Garage is only about seven miles away, and if the county sells the Pulaski Garage to the town, they could still use it to store salt and sand.

Downsizing is never a bad thing.

Will this be the end of the road for Buckey?

It's official. Jack Beckwith is running for legislature. This is interesting because he will be running against Terry "Buckey" Wilbur, if Buckey decides to run again.

Buckey served one year as majority leader and was ousted this year. He was replaced by Shane Broadwell.

Buckey fell into controversy when a road was built on Beckwith's property. Beckwith wanted to sell sand to the county and a road was built to access the property. It wasn't simply a pathway to the sand pit, county Highway Superintendent put in a road that was the equivalent of the New York State Thruway.

Buckey's involvement is iffy.  We here at the Onion saw an email written by Legislature Chairman Kevin Garnder that sort of implicates Buckey more than Buckey had admitted.

Then, there was a Hannibal resident who told investigators that he had overheard Buckey talking about the road back well before Buckey claims he had first heard about the road. Mind you, not only does Buckey's father work for the county highway department, he was one of the employees working on the road. 

We hear that the road is not a dead issue as far as any investigations.

Needless to say, Beckwith can easily beat Buckey in an election. Despite the road issue, Jack is still quite a popular guy and the father of the town.

Stay in Lewis County Judge King

You are useless here.

No matter where one travels these days, Judge King and his ever-so-transparent bias is all the talk. You'll hear it in line at the grocery store, Wal-Mart, in bars and restaurants, diners, town meetings, out in the street, everywhere.

One thing is for certain: Almost everyone is in agreement that Judge King is not using impartial judgment.

Whoever was in charge of sending this yo-yo to Oswego County is despicable. Why send an inexperienced judge who can't hold back his own personal bias? Or is this all about the Republican's covering for the sheriff? After all, the GOP does owe the sheriff quite a bit. And the sheriff's son works hard for the party. Too hard for the way they treat him.

One waitress mentioned that every night, at almost every table, people are talking about Judge King. Surely, all these folks aren't sitting in the court and are getting their info from the news, which makes it worse.

This latest story shows how ignorant this judge is. Why not just end it so the case can move to federal court?

It's a shame that the higher-ups aren't telling Judge King to tone his bias. That just goes to show what type of judicial system we have in New York State.

We're getting slammed with emails from readers wanting to know what agency they can complain to. We are trying to find out and will post when we get something.  Of course, the FBI is always an option.

Judge King is just too...

So much for 6 pm.  Judge King recessed and didn't schedule a date to resume.
He is unbelievable. A man's life is hanging and this judge plays games.

Granted, this case is so bizarre and everyone is finding out how incompetent the Sheriff's Department was when investigating the case.

And Chris Van Patten. Wow! They let this guy work at a nuke plant?

Judge King is the reason the public has no trust in the judiciary. He's proven, beyond a reasonable doubt, that he could give two shits about the truth.

It's becoming more and more clear why Oakes filed complaints about Judge Hafner. Heaven forbid if he were to hear this case.  That could have destroyed the Republican Party that is so hellbent on protecting Sheriff Todd. 

Judge King, how would you feel if it was YOU behind bars waiting for a judge to conclude a hearing?

Did the Sheriff allow a killer to roam free?

Today, the testimony is pointing more and more in the direction as someone else being the abductor, and most likely killer, of Heidi Allen. 

The judge had his curfew extended until 6 pm. Must be he's been a good boy for the Republican Party. Maybe he'll want to hired Morgan Longley as his law clerk.

The Powers, the curiosity-seeking couple who went joy-hunting at the cabin sight, sounded too scripted to be believable. There's got to be more to that story that we're not hearing.

More later.

Stay classy Oswego County

One of our readers kindly sent us the Facebook conversation of Morgan Longley's boyfriend and Longley's contributions to the conversation. Hopefully she leaves her potty mouth home when she goes to work to service the public.

Kudos to County Republican Committee Chairman Michael Backus and County Republican Elections Commissioner Carol "Peggy" Bickford for picking the cream of the crop. You both truly contribute to the reason Oswego County is a laughing stock. Be proud, be proud.

John Crawford A couple things. 1. The peeled onion is not a website for the Heidi Allen case. It's a political website ran by an individual who has a respected hatred towards republicans and Oswego county. 2. I don't agree with putting Morgan on blast the way they did. I think she is great and I didn't really know her 6 years ago. It sucks that her past is being brought up because of the political stress currently going on. I want you to know I love you dougy and Morgan both and keep your heads up. I don't want this to be the direction that the public is taking during this time. Crucifying Morgan is just ridiculous because of who she is. That's all

How and Why judges are political

A lot of people don't understand how judges are selected. They assume they simply vote them in.

New York State has a complex process. There are judicial delates chosen who are generally political hacks (Michael Backus, county GOP chairman, is a judicial delegate). They determine who will run on the party line. The Dems have the same process.

One would think judicial delegates would comprise of lawyers and those who deal with the court system on a regular basis. Not so here in Oswego County. 

So, if you wonder how an idiot like Judge King could get on the bench, look no further than the Lewis County Republican Committee.

It's an unfair process, but what process in New York State is fair.

An interesting tidbit about the DA's office

We were emailed all the documentation, so this is accurate information. It came from a legislator who was assisting a person who had been ripped off. 

Several years ago, a man moved to Oswego and said his name was Ken Cloud. He posed as a contractor and ripped off the elderly.

For a time he lived with Denise Osetek, who at that time worked for the Oswego County Commissioner of Jurors office.

Ken Cloud had a DBA that was notarized by Cathleen O'Hara, who works in the DA's office.  A second DBA was notarized by Cynthia Wild, who works for Judge Norman Seiter.

When "Ken Cloud" was done ripping off the elderly here, he took his DBA's and went to Florida where he attempted to rip off several elderly people and had stolen the checkbook of one elderly man. He used his DBA's from Oswego County to legitimize himself.

But the Orange County Sheriff's Department caught on to him quickly, so he went to live in Sandy Creek where he went by Indian Chief Something-or-Other.

People became suspicious and he fled to Syracuse, where he ripped off more people and was arrested. 

It just so happens that Ken Cloud is really Kenneth Bennet and he was wanted in Oneida County. 

Of course, Kenneth Bennett had no identification to show he was Ken Cloud. So how did he get NOTARIZED DBA's from an employee of the DA's office and of a judge's office without showing ID?

We don't know nor does the legislator who provided us with the information. We do know that both Ms. O'Hara and Ms. Wild had their notary licenses suspended for six months because of it.

So, there's a little weekend ditty about the integrity of DA and Court employees.

And, as we told you before, there's a former ADA who happened to enjoy watching porn movies while at the office. 

As an update to Morgan Longley- we are told the high ups will be reviewing whether she breached confidentiality with what she wrote about a former employee of the Board of Elections being terminated. We'll keep you posted.
