“It's a freedom of speech issue”

James A. Farbotnik is going to get his message out any way he can. "I'm going to be heard, I'm not going to be silenced," said the owner of CyberWorldUSA, 73 Main St. via Watertown Daily Times

this guy is a clown, I've read all the crap on his wesite. what a joke this guy is. there was nothing in words or pictures that convinces me.

He talks about tax payer money this and that, yet it seems to me he's looking for a handout /lawsuit,that the tax payers would have to pay anyway. I think this guy should get a life.

The taxpayers deserve to get their money back for things not completed during capital projects.

Asbestos is a silent killer. the effects do not show up for ten or more years. Asbestosis and mesothelioma are caused by exposure to asbestos. Its not a joking matter. if there is asbestos in these buildings, and it has been removed illegally, its a federal offense. My question is: would you want your kids exposed to this?

Everyone laughed at him a few months ago. Now look at all the things that were covered up by the school board that he was right about.

The Attorney general is investigating all schools in the state and their attorneys, all towns, and villages. They are currently investigating the boces in this area. The citizens need the national guard sent up to Massena to the school to clean up the up the mess that has gone on for years. Money needs to be reimbursed to the taxpayers for things which will be coming coming out. It makes complete sense to put someone down when they are able to put a huge hole in your scam. The investigators really see the picture of the problems and their extent and are having their own field day right now!

Personally I'm glad someone is sticking up for our rights and It appears he has legitimate concerns that we should all listen too, and maybe THANK him for doing something none of us took the effort to. Whatever the outcome I'll Thank him for caring about my children who have attended the school. I can only pray he is wrong, but asbestos WAS removed from there!!!!

I just cant get over it . The school system put hundred of kids in Danger to line there pockets with our money. Apparently they thought that they needed a raise and couldnt think of a better way . I have heard that a teacher has died from the asbestos that was found in that school . Is this true ???? And is all the asbestos out of all the schools now ???? I Do not blame Mr Gladding solely for anything I think this was a planned thing and Everyone had there hands in the pots . to give this guy the sole responcibility would be like saying that He was alone on this entire project and I know he was not the only one . Someone else on the team could have come forward and said something about this. Were talking about innocent lifes here . With no Price tag on them . NO amount of money could make me want to put any kid in Jeopardy for any price .

The school board is covering for somebody and something. The parents and taxpayers need to stand up and go in a large group to the meeting and vote on May 20. This is a statewide problem not just Massena! Clough Elementary school did had problems with Hygeia lying about asbestos tests results. Some of the employees were not even told about it! It was covered up there and it would have been here also if it was pushed!

A sure way to tell if there is any asbestos related health problems is to have a chest xray. they can tell if there is asbestosis or mesothelioma in their lungs. Usually doe not happen right away, but when i took the course to become an asbestos remover, they told us to get a chest xray every 6 months. asnd that is after using the correct equipment when handling asbestos. by the way, the effects of asbestos exposure won't come to light for almost ten years. And anyone caught disposing of abestos illegally commit a federal crime. its that bad..

Do you have kids in these schools? Just so you know, if there is asbestos in these schools, your kids are being exposed to it. asbestos does not discriminate. it affects everyone. i've been in these schools for sports activities, and if i had known that there was an asboestos problem, I would not have gone to these places. Don't take my word for it. Look up asbestosis and mesothelioma on the internet. It will scare you white...

The schools are probably the safest places to go as far as asbestos is concerned.There are still many other publicly used places with abestos lining pipes and other areas.many older homes are sided with it.What are you gonna do,lock your children in a room?
The funny thin is Mr Farbotnik is the same guy who got in trouble for dumping a bunch of leaky broken toxic computers by the side of the road.It was a huge toxic dump that he exposed his children and the public to.He also felt that the town should pay to clean up his mess without any concern to anyones health.
He also had a huge bonfire during a very dry spell and burn ban.He felt it was his right to do so even though it could have burned the whole coutryside down.They had to call the state police to make him put it out.MR. sore loser tried to sue the volunteer fire dept for protecting the safety of others.
I'm sure his history of trouble stretches back from there.Massena is not the first town he has infected with his narcissistic arrogent personality disorder.As much as would feel sorry for any place that he settles.I would have a party to celebrate if he left this town.

Amen to "tired of idiots" comments. These two "warriers" are nothing more than warrior whiners and advocates for their own egos. They claim to be advocates for children..do child advocates use their own children to speak in front of school board meetings, giving rehearsed messages? Or terrify their own children by scaring them into thinking they have been fatally exposed to asbestos? I think not. Thank goodness the voters of Massena can decipher between fiction and reality. Oh yeah, the machines were faulty...yeah right. What next? Give it a rest!

No it is not.Sorry,many of us have been exposed our whole lives,in fact most of us over 40.It can cause cancer when inhaled.We do what we can to reduce that factor.
The highest death rates in this country are related to diet and unhealthy lifestyle.Many children are being killed by their parents with food and a sedate lifestyle.
How about you stone thrower???How do you rate?Are you sitting on your butt with your gut in your lap?What is on the menu today?HMMMMMMMM?

HEY DUMB NUT, you got your facts wrong. Mr. Farbotnik did not hava a toxic dump at the side of the road, nor expected the town to pay to clean it up. The facts are it was spring clean-up, everyone put lager items to be picked up at the side of the road, and it is all paid for out of a special fund on our taxes. Someone falsely report that the stuff was excessive, and that it belong to Mr. Farbotnik. Fact was none of it belong to Mr. Farbotnik, nor did he put it there, and for the record the DEC failed to show-up for all 3 court appearance because they knew it, and Mr. Farbotnik won that complaint! As to the fire on the burn ban, you must be one of the idiots from the volunteer fire department that showed-up at this Easter dinner family barbecue, which by the way, barbecues are not coveered by the burning ban law. Get you laws and facts straight. You must be one of those dumb nuts that talk before you get all of the facts, Farbotnik sued the Fire Chief because of the propery damage done by the fire guys drinking beer and whooping it up and broke his gate down, and Farbotnik has it all on film. The NY State Trooper Garrow had to tell those want-a-be volunteer fire guys to leave. Go get a copy of the police report, before you make a total fool of yourself. Farbotnik gave me some pictures of the gerks drinking beer and standing by the fire truck, yelling and swearing. Yes, you want some pictures emailed to you? Lastly, I have know this Farbotnik guy most of my life, he's a good guy, helps everyone, and asks for nothing in return. Your professional opinion of him is wrong, you must be a poor shrink, or a queer. By the way, get your facts straight Farbotnik grew-up here, moved back here to help kids in a money depress town, and Farbotnik has given away many thousands of dollar of FRRE computer to kids for 8 years now. I think he had done a better job that your Mayor! WHERE ARE YOU FROM, AND WHAT HAVE YOU EVER DONE TO HELP ANYONE BUT YOURSELF?
What you talk to me, my phone number in in the book.
