Rome, NY Sucks

But At Least We're Not Utica

Sunday, February 05, 2006


It looks like state employees are banned from events and activities at the Turning Stone. You know, that's the place Ray Halbritter uses to finance lawsuits against half of Central New York and endless tax evasion schemes. Somewhere at the top of the state administration, the word came down to stop hosting state conferences at the Turning Stone. I mean why should we? It's on sovereign Indian land.

It would be nice if the residents of the three counties did the same. Seriously, cut your Diamond Card in half, mail it back to the Casino and let them know that holding the citizens and the state hostage is bad for public relations.

    I ate one meal (when I first got to Rome) at the Emerald restaurant in there, but other than that, just the occasional gasoline fillup when I get on and off the Thruway. Oh, and my company uses the Inn at Turning Stone for out-of-town guests occasionally.

    I live about 2 miles from TS. I don't go. I do, however, buy cigarettes from the Savon. I buy gas at the only local place left, Arnott's.

    It may be in response to how the Nation stacked a recent Public Information night at 2 local high schools with their employees. The staff at a local Savon donned T-shirts that said something to the effect, "Taxes = job loss." Meaning if the Nation is made to pay its fair and equitable share, the Naiton's employees would lose their jobs.

    Oh Laura, you should give up smoking. It'll save you a lot of money in the long run.

    The funny thing is that Halbritter is willing to pay "taxes" for the Savon stations, but not for the Turning Stone. If he and the casino think taxes are so bad for jobs, maybe they should stop giving money to Democrats like Roann Destito.

    Is this the same Destito family that owns the Beeches and Savoy?

    ... and the catering concession at Turning Stone.

    You're kidding! Of course, I've only been to the big ugly monolith, er CASINO, once.
