The Herkimer Fire Dept has NOT been working round the clock since Friday!!! They got all these other departments here amd then went to bed friday night! I guess they call sleeping in duty, working round the clock. The only night they worked round the clock was Monday night when they pumped the water out of the N Bellinger & W Albany area. Another plan that they screwed up as it should have been started a lot sooner than what it was. Alan Richards says on the news they want to throw in the towel because they're tired??? Really!?! True heros work through being tired, not call it a night and hit the rack to get a full 8. Fed up with the B.S.

The parks? You're another idiot. The PD was at minimum staff and awake all night while all 17 fireman were on overtime sleeping in their beds. True heros dont get tired & "want to throw in the towel" as quoted by mr personality himself Al Richards. I like how they keep telling the media how they've been working round the clock. That's a flat out lie. I had one of them complain to me that they had to give up their beds so the national guard could sleep in them. It left them sleeping in their recliners that they spend their day in.

Don't worry. Luppino will soon be a County legislator and a Cop. Where will he sleep then? He's campaigning on our dime and getting OT for it. Only in Jerkimer.

I cant argue with you there, that's the truth. But I dont think anyone likes him enough to vote for him.

Let's hope even those that like him realize he is not very bright. His sole purpose is to build pension and get the free health insurance. Might be worth it to us, if he had basic intelligence. He even lacks the the brains to compete with the dumbest on the legislature.
