Well.. Corthole's surrounding area's ( besides downtown) IS basically Farmland! Which makes it confusing when wondering why this new bunch of "big city" thugs would want to move there! Downtown has always been known for it's bars and restaurants.. why else would anyone want to visit ( or attend CS?). Some say it's an easier place to get welfare.. and by the looks of how run-down the town has become in over the past 20 years.. I almost wonder if they aren't accurate. Cortland used to be known for it's hard working people.. Settled from Italy and Ireland. Homer was a safe, beautiful neighborhood and place to raise children. Cortland was pretty safe as well. Continue to clean up the drug pushers and get the trash out of there and maybe the "Crown City" will be known for something other than a bunch of "zombies left behind the rest of N.Y. state".

i have to admit that Cortland isn't dangerous but it is really communist and a lot of bad thing does happen there it is a small town with small people trying to be big there is a lot of corruption and cover ups but youll never find it in any statistics their covered up everyone there is really unhappy and really oppressed there is no privacy in that town and there is no real law to enforce or to anyone to enforce them. to not name names but one issue is that the law enforcement doesn't even know their own jurisdiction sheriff and city police or state troopers. yes a lot of child abuse goes on there but most of the cps official are so corrupt they only persecute what they want and only attack people who cant afford a lawyer from out of the county and abuse the legal system you have people there that run for city and county council and who have their own businesses and make sure that their business get the city or county contract. the council only meets once a week but yet receive 25 thousand dollars a year for their if you tried to contact them you just get a message to call back later position worst of all neighbors don't talk to one another or communicate the call the police or code enforcer they will go on people property when their not home to search the property to hassle some one or the SPCA can just take some one dog for no reason and fine someone for nothing and the taxes are outrageous some people are paying more in property tax that what they pay in mortgage. because of moral obligation some law enforcement can pic and choose what laws to enforce and what laws to not enforce and how they enforce and how to enforce them if you look at laws everything you do is illegal but if it is enforced or not and to truly get justice people have to hire lawyer from out of the county for a fair shake Cortland county if some one is robbing your house you have to let them until police show up i watch a fight break out on main st one night 300 yards from the police stations i measured after the event it took them 45 min to respond it wouldn't hurt to have a federal investigation or least and inquiry people are allowed to live the america dream and that is the true crime the government was not designed to protect us from us it was design to allow us to protect our rights but people have given their rights away for protection that has corrupted the system read the first ten amendment and then look at the laws in place most of those laws are unconstitutional in Cortland county and could not stand in the supreme court something is wrong with a city when they tell you how you can have your house and how well you have to take care of it its yours you pay taxes on it and you have the right to have it in any condition you want and if they want you to have it a certain way that should help you pay for it to have it that way instead they bring you to court and fine you eventually taking your time and money you home away and sell it for less that the fine if this happen to you you have a legal right to bill the city county and state or police or code enforcer for you time you can bill the city for making you go to court you don't have a choice to go but no law says you cant be compensated for it

How are you going to correct someone on their spelling while misspelling the word "Spell"? You sir are in fact the definition of a true Cortland Professional. Keep the title and the extra L you put in spell and add it to your portfolio as a new skill. Or you can add it to the word skill and prove just how much skilll it takes to be an incest scum hoarder.

I've lived here 8 months this places sucks. dangerous, not in the slightest I worry more about the drama and gossip people seem to love to do here, in which you can't really blame anyone for gossip there is nothing else to do. There are no thugs, no real big time anything here, just people with to much to drink with to much free time.

Has anyone seen or know Bonnie D. Klein? She owes over 3,000 dollars in child support. We were told that her and her girlfriend bought a car on the 6th but that is it. She stop paying child support in July after she got fired from Northwoods Nursing home. Funny thing is she had only payed child support for 3 month before she stopped. She is a drug addict and alcoholic. She has the money to help support her kids but is choosing not too. If anyone has seen her or knows where she is working PLEASE contact you local Child Support Enforcement agency. Any information will help.
You are right about it all. She works at a place called HealthSource RI. The number listed is 18558404774. She is on Facebook under Bonnie Klein and lives in Cortland, NY. She is a dirtbag whom cannot get her own man or support her own children. I wish you much luck!!

She has more than one child? She's not listed on Cortland County's website of child-support-debtors.

Well if this is the same person, she's listed on a google search as doing Medicaid home care nursing and her home address and phone number is listed right there for anyone to see. So I'm sure if the authorities were in fact looking for her for back child support, it wouldn't be very difficult to find her. McGraw is a very small town.

Who is/was this cop you refer to and who did htextingurder?
Details, prease?

I don't know how old this post is, so by now you may already have your answers. This was an off duty police officer named Jeff Stockton. He was driving drunk and texting when he hit my aunt, Lyn Briggs, and her friend. They were both using the crosswalk. It was early evening and Jeff Stockton was already drunk, so drunk that he couldn't even perform CPR on my aunt. If it was anyone but a police officer in a town with a lot of ' cop buddies' and other people taking care of his dirty work, they would be in jail for life. Cortland is like any other town. But I will tell you there are a LOT of dirty cops in this town that get away with way more than they should.

Not everyone is bad in this town. I live in a nice neighborhood, have great neighbors, and a decent paying job. I have however, thwarted someone from stealing gas from my car. Oh yeah- and things keep coming up missing from in my shed and around my house. Its sad that in the neighborhood that I live in a person has to go to extreme lengths to prevent theft. And then of course there is the heroin everywhere. One other thing- its impossible to enlist the help of a city official (for street lights, getting signs put up, etc). You wouldn't believe the lengths I have gone already trying to get those things done. I literally had to make a Freedom of Information Act Law request to get the DPW minutes to see if they were just ignoring my requests. Any other city these minor things are not a big deal.
Overall, you can make it a decent place to live. But- you have to go the extra mile to MAKE IT.
