Can anyone give me information on the work situation in the Ellenville area?I work in the construction field.I am originally from Ellenville and will be going back soon,hoping things will work out when I get there.If nobody can tell me about construction ... maybe you might know if there are any apartment complexes in the area that may need a live in maintenance worker that pays and gives housing.I need to get any information I can before going that way.

krulick your still a bully and a loser. get over it the wally train is here. Krulick go push your Electric lawn mower... At least it created jobs for the outside team and they are not living off the system.

Krulick your big no it all an the people in Ellenville are tired of your stupid post on this topic and the local paper. Read the comments in the paper (Ellenville press). Get over yourself your not right all the time. You think you no it all krulick.

People in Ellenville are tired of people like you that want to stop progress. That includes me.

I see you still can't address what I actually said, and just have to call me names and default the argument. Calling me a bully or "no it all" (did you make it past 1st grade?) doesn't make me one, nor does it refute what I said. How does giving temp jobs to those who don't live here help us? Same as Walmart destroying US jobs and sending them to China I guess? Your apology for that "creation" is so weak.

YOU don't speak for "the people in Ellenville"! Did you poll them all? Calling my post stupid doesn't make it so! How is it "stupid"? See, first you'd have to define stupid, then point to a particular thing I wrote and show how it IS stupid, and then PROVE it! You don't even try!

There is no "Ellenville Press" anymore, which suggests you are even more clueless than I have shown you to be.

Why don't YOU stop obsessing and YOU get over me? Do you think your illiterate rants are convincing anyone? I never said I was "right all the time" (more absolutism!) but YOU haven't shown me to be wrong even ONCE! No, I don't think I "no it all" nor claim to; but I hardly have the audacity to claim to know what someone else THINKS, as you just have!

Again, you don't speak for "People in Ellenville"! If you want to speak for YOURSELF, fine, but since your premise is wrong (that I want to stop progress), your conclusion is wrong. Walmart is NOT progress! It's the opposite of progress! It's a return to the bad old days of the British East India Company, a huge and powerful monopoly that caused REAL Americans to start a revolution for REAL progress! PROGRESS would be if we stopped depending on outside predators and put our economic destiny and control into our own hands!

Krulick I asked if work was good in Ellenville as I lived there about 10 years ago so I ask is there work. I was raised there and Graduated there just moved away which was a good thing at the time. I don't care about the arguments and disputes you all have going on just would like to know is it worth my time to move my family back there. I am also well known there I'm sure but wont post my last name as I'm sure that will start a whole new conversation so I ask is there work there and is it worth bringing my family there.

It's a tough call, James. Unemployment is actually lower in Ulster County than in the USA as a whole, but our local area is worse and has been in depressed state for many years, particularly as the factories have close. Some entrepreneurs are taking risks and opening or expanding businesses, but I've never seen as many vacant storefronts downtown, and the owners I speak to are hurting bad. There are many "quality of life" advantages to living here, depending on your values. I know those in construction who are having a hard time finding work, and are scratching to find anything to fill in. There are few guarantees, but isn't that true anywhere today?

by reading some of these post both of you are babies.... grow up and argue fair. East India company... Thats a bad example as back then there was not much of a free economy back then.

Kings ruled during that time so America had to deal with there tax system and rules.

1. Thank you Krulick for answering my questions
2. Still may move back that way not sure as to where but around the area
3. I didn't make this topix on work to have the arguments from past topix to be argued on this one.
4. So I will part now and you all can have this one to do your arguing and fussing. It's bad all over. We all just have to accept it and hope we make the right decisions for our families to survive
5 Maybe I will see you all in New York. Don't know but never know

I would have answered your questions right off as I recently had, but rman chose to interject Walmart and ME into the thread for his own reasons, and his info wasn't really helpful, which is why I responded then as I did.

I have lived here since the 70s and find many positive reasons; for example, last night my wife and I walked the five minutes to the Shadowland Theatre to see an amusing musical playing to a nearly full house. Tonight, we will be at the Music in the Square free concert in Liberty Square. There are some decent eateries, and enough friendly people so I can ignore the jerks and zombies. The air and water are clean, the crime low, the views great, schools and library excellent, nearby hospital and first aid squad, active volunteer fire depts, fishing-hunting-hang gliding-skiing-flying for those who want it. Things are casual and low-key; even the bankers and lawyers rarely wear suits. I suggest you check it out for a week or so in person before making any final decision. Good craftsman are always needed and can find work if they promote themselves and have a good rep.

Thank you again. Yes I use to have a business there many years ago and did have a good rep as I was taught by one of the best there.. and been in this line of work since 1985. I lived there and was raised there and went to school there so I know about all the things it has to offer .. just haven't been there in almost 8 years and how the economy and things have changed was hoping it was still kicking and alive as it use to be ..
