Well played Mr. Eby

Unofficial results give Eby the GOP line

  The unofficial results of the Oswego County Family Court race have James Eby winning the Republican line by a more than 2-1 margin for absentee ballots.

This leaves Thom Benedetto the Conservative Line. Seeing that he's a Republican, it will be interesting to see if he will burn his bridges with the GOP and run or bow out and hope for the next one.  He has run for a judgeship in the past. Guess it doesn't matter which one he gets.

 Eby will face Lou Ann Coleman, a Democrat, this November. She's not well liked in the legal community, so we've been told by several lawyers, and she's not well liked by those who have had her as a law guardian, so she'll have some image sanitizing to do. At least the Democrats have a candidate. It's rare they do in judicial races.

Patty, Patty, Patty

You needed to waste our hard earned money on this?

State Senator Patty Ritchie is running unopposed, yet she still bombards us with propaganda during the election season. Fortunately, she doesn't do this in off-election years.

This is the lastest BS she has sent out, her third mailer this year, telling us how she's bringing us tax relief. Of course, everyone's wallet is fuller because of her-- yeah right.

We live in the one of the highest taxed states in this country. How can anyone promote tax relief when most have seen an increase. She takes the moron of the year award.

And why, oh why, does someone earning $300,000 last year need a $350 rebate check?  

Margaret Bailey

The latest from the state

 There's really nothing to show where former Altmar clerk Margaret Bailey is, so it must be she has yet to be assigned to a prison.

 Perhaps she's still in OCJ waiting.

Residents urge letters to the Inspector General

 We received an email and were asked to post the information here. Some residents are writing to the New York State Inspector General's office requesting an investigation into the Oswego County District Attorney's office.  The DA falls under the state because some of the salary of a DA is paid by the state. The IG's office does have the power to investigate and they are very aggressive and thorough.

Anyone who cares to file a complaint can follow this link and do so online.

UPDATE: We had to remove the poll because someone hacked it.

Nuke plant

Is this more than a rumor?

 There's been a lot of rumblings this week that a former Oswego City cop was hired at one of the nuclear plants and was found to have pot in his lunch pail.

 People are saying that the employee is still on the job. Of course, some think pot is no big deal, but when it comes to the nuclear plants, it would seem the NRC would have a problem with a pot-carrying employee.  After all, public safety should come before someone's need to get stoned. 

We are working to find out if there is any truth to this and will check with the NRC on Monday. The most recent info comes from someone who is in the position to know what's going on in the city.

Attention SUNY Oswego

If you want your comments to post please read carefully

We are getting inundated with comments in defense of Dana and the DMV and most are coming from SUNY Oswego. We would be happy to post all of your comments, however, they are going into the spam folder because of the high number of them coming from one server.

Please understand we are not withholding your comments. When they land in the spam folder, we cannot retrieve them. We can see what you wrote and where the comments are sent from (because the server gets a notation that it's a spammer) but we can't even copy and paste them to put them on for you.

If you live off-campus, please resubmit from home, or if you work there, please try from home.  Comments from the SUNY Oswego server won't come through, at least for the rest of the day because of the high number.

Thank you.

Clarifying our commenting policy

Once again...

If you post multiple comments in a short period of time, the filter treats them as spam and they go into the spam file. We can see them, but we cannot retrieve them.

We have been receiving a high number of comments that are landing in the spam folder and many each day that claim someone is a homosexual. We cannot, and will not, post those comments. They are hate comments against homosexuals and they don't belong here.

As we said in the past, if you don't like us, don't read us. It's that simple.

Thank you.
