Rome, NY Sucks

But At Least We're Not Utica

This Land is Your Land

Two fun decisions in the land of property tax imposition. All the local school budgets passed, with Rome getting a new slate of educator relatives for the school board. Plus, the feds gave Halbritter the 13,000 acres of land in "trust" that many of us expected.

Amusingly, the county plans to sue the government over the decision. Well, I'm sick of the filthy lawyers. I say the local government should do what it does best, interfere. Learn the example of "The Dukes of Hazard" and impose some Boss Hogg style tactics.

I think we need a massive, multi-year road construction project on route 365. And how about the environmental concerns of all of Turning Stone's water usage? I think we should rethink the wisdom of trying to support such a large resort. And who zoned the water usage for that anyway? For the sake of the canal system, we should cut them back to a water level equivalent to the water tax they pay.
