I had two dogs that merged. Had to pour a spackle bucket of cold water on them to get them apart. Kinda the same thing except in one case it was two farm dawgs and in the other it's two broke school districts. Otherwise it be the same thing.

It's not the answer right now. Fort Plain is set to weather the Cuomo storm for a few more years and why would Canjo even consider it, when their taxes would surely increase? After the Water Bill fiasco they'd never want to enter into something that would make their school taxes go up, too.

Going cheapo on taxes is short sighted. We need to stimulate spending and consumption to get this economy going. Instead of consolidating school districts, we should create a new one with brand new schools and an Olympic size pool. Don't worry about all the borrowing necessary to achieve this or tax hikes. All this growth will generate new tax revenue streams that will pay for everything. Don't be an old fusspot held hostage by Iranians. It's morning in America.

We need a new swimming pool and athletic fields with the latest Syn-turf surfaces. Also a new fleet of buses. And the hard working teachers should get more staff and raises.

Canjo is in deep dodo when the BeechNut tears those building down. And they are almost out of money, Canjo needs Fort Plain much more than Canjo realizes.

Should Canajoharie and Fort Plain merge? I believe
they should. However, I feel that even years ago
when there was talk about a merger, the adminis-
tration at the two schools didn't really back
a merger. A prime example of this is the shared
use of the Canajoharie pool. No matter what you
think of the Canajoharie pool, it is paid for
by the Canajoharie taxpayers.(it did have an
expensive renovation several years ago) If the
two schools don't want to merge, then don't
merge programs, i.e. don't allow students from
Fort Plain to be on the "swim team" or to use
the pool. Don't have a merged wrestling team or
any other merged programs. Either have a com-
plete merger or have no partial mergers. This
may sound a little harsh, but allowing Fort
Plain to pick and choose what they would like
merged and what don't want merged hurts the
possibility of a total merger. To sum it up,
Fort Plain, if you want your athletes to be
on a swim team either merge completely or use
your own pool.

Merge Smerge. Whatever they do will be the excuse for raising my property taxes beyond what I can afford. No one can save us from fiscal irresponsibilities of previous administrations or overly generous retirement packages that we have to pay for ad nasuem, et cetera, so on and so forth.

And another thing. There are a lot of bums in this town who don't have jobs and collect welfare. They are big fatsos that wear what look like pajamas and have tattoos and bizarre haircuts. These are the parents of the children of these very expensive schools with swimming pools and golf courses. Somehow, I don't think all of this is sustainable by relying on retirees to foot the bill. I think that it would be a good idea for me to move someplace a little cheaper like China or Easter Island.

I have recently moved to another state. I dri ve around and observe the place and wonder why it is neat and there aren't people who obviously don't work all over the streets....This is not rocket science but the difference is JOBS!!!! And leadership in the municipalities here constantly search out companies who will come here.In my opinion,Our NYS government did NY a great disservice by not being proactive the minute our manufacturing started to leave...I'm talking 50 yrs ago....You are right about FP (and other small communities) running out of tax payers...It's one way or the other:Jobs and people who care or absentee landlords and non-workers.

Ugh!
This is the karma you deserve. Hundreds of years ago Whitey come in hordes to steal our land after making treaties stating they would not take our land. So we put a curse on you. Now you are all getting fat and lazy. No work. Drink firewater and hump fatsos. Your longhouses are rundown and need paint. Bums and winos sleep in the street. Soon we come back and throw you out.
Ugh!
