The BEO needs to grow a set. Stop with the status quo. The money isn't there. No money, No raises, The pensions are breaking the taxpayer's back. Everybody has delt with this bad economy accept the unions. Guess what? Your chickens have come home to roost. Time to feel what the average joe has been feeling since O'bama got elected. Sorry folks you've hit the ceiling.

Even then it wont matter. Mistakes have been made by both sides. The kids will suffer most, while everyone is trying to place blame or secure higher wages.

Be truthful with yourself. Accept the blame, you voted your kids lesser opportunities.

And who got a raise???

We all know, we all see it. The facts are out.

NO gotiate- Pardon me, but your ignorance is show-
ing. The school district has no control over
employee pensions; that is completely controlled
by the state. Now let's talk about something
important. How is the Herkimer football team
going to do this year? P.S. Who or what is the
"BEO"?

BOE (Board of Education) I never said they had control over pensions. I said they were breaking the taxpayers back. Is that no factual? B O E controls benefits and contracts, lets start there. Talk about football all you want, I'm interested is reducing taxes. Clearly you are not, but that's typical of retirees. As long as you get yours, screw everybody else. Now tell me about how you live vicariously through your children.

No gociate- To quote you; "The pensions are
breaking the taxpayer's back." Is that factual;
no, that's your opinion. I think the price of
gasoline is "breaking the taxpayer's back";
corporate greed is breakng the taxpayer's back,
crooked politicians are breaking the taxpayer's
back, hundreds of billions of dollars being
spent in Afghanistan and other foreign countries
is breaking the taxpayer's back; need I go on?
But the only tax you can vote on is the property
tax for schools, so that's what you "bitch"
about. P.S. As a retiree I pay the same taxes
you do; I own a house so I pay property taxes,
I pay sale's tax on anything I buy, I pay income
tax, I pay for Medicare and whatever else. P.P.S.
So somebody, how's the Herkimer football team
going to do?

Extracurricular activities are in the "contract".
Therefore,they are "contractual". However, they
are not mandated by the state. Are you con-
fused? P.S. The answer is simple; have the BOE
abolish all extracurricular activites. Then you
would save a lot of money.

Nice talk. But anyway, you are incorrect. All of the salaries you listed are, indeed, contractual, whether you feel that they are necessary or not. So if the District eliminated them all, you'd probably save about $40 on your next School Tax bill, if that, even. By the way, does your CAPS LOCK button keep getting stuck or something? What a fruitcake.

Huh? You personally pay over $52,000 per year on your School Tax bill? Wow, someone who lives in a property like that shouldn't be quibbling over a few extra-curricular salaries!

What are the "common core cases"?

Wow, school was really rough for you, huh? You really hate teachers.

or just cut those below a certain threshold of participation...probably end up with the same list though - none.

Back in the day, we referred to this as 'make work'. You remember those days don't ya ole timer? Long gone, wake up.
