Murray gets a $30k raise. Others get big raises. Take a percentage and the fireworks are paid for. Instead they spin it as saving money and saving jobs from layoffs.
OMG. It's a freaking community college ... a glorified high school. It's not freaking Harvard freaking University. Whose brainy idea was it to pay the principal of HCCC over $150,000???? This is just out of control. We need to do a Wisconsin here in New York!!!!

A know-it-all or know-all is a person who believes that he/she has an accurate comprehension of a topic and/or situation when in reality, his/her comprehension is inaccurate and limited. This belief may or may not be outwardly expressed
Know-it-alls would be plural. Guess you missed that lesson in third grade?
You need a period after "expressed"

Tell that to Wikipedia since I copy and pasted it from their website. Must be their mistake.

You have written grammatically correct sentences. Congratulations!

Also, Wikipedia is not a scholarly source. Anyone can go on there and change stuff, therefore it is a laughable source to use among us educated folk. You wouldn't know that, of course.

But yet the definition I quoted was completely accurate.

Because it had the definition I was looking for. You claimed "know-it-alls" does not exist when in fact it does. Face it, you are not as smart as you pretend to be. But you are as dumb as you try to pretend you are not.

If you knew how to read, you would know that I said "alls" was not a word as you had written it. If you knew what definition you were looking for, you wouldn't have had to go to a site that even third graders are told to stay away from.

Therefore, you fail at life. You also amuse me.

I did know the definition and the fact that it was a real word. But unfortunately to trolls like you, a person's word is not enough. You need proof that you were wrong. And you continue to be. My life is successful. Bet you cannot say the same.

I'm pretty sure I never once required proof for anything. You must be talking about yourself. I am glad you think your life is successful. You must have gotten real far with the help of Wikipedia.

You seem to put little premium on "proof." For instance, when I offered proof (in the form of multiple links to authoritative sites on proper use of the English language) that your use of the word "infer" was incorrect, you comically, sadly insisted you were right nonetheless. LOL.

And then stole my screen name! Truly a sorry individual. Your two-month jihad against decency and respect on area Topix forums has been saddening and disturbing. My recommendation -- try ayahuasca!

I am truly a sorry individual. Does anyone know an apartment that's cheap for rent? My landlord is kicking me out because my welfare doesn't cover the rent AND my drug habit. I may have to make use of that cardboard box after all!

I'm confused - people are complaining about the quality of life in this area and at the same time saying the firework event is a waste of money and having a local college is uneccesary. So which is it?

Oh, we need a community college alright. If we didn't have a community college, then how could the political hacks and cronies find great paying state jobs for their wives, cousins and in-laws? Dr. Annie earns her salary several times over making sure there is room at that trough for all of her patrons.

Get rid of Brian Marharver...

He is Bookstore manager as well as head of of 2 other depts so he gets a percentage of the cafeteria and who know how much in kick backs, his salary for one year alone will cover the fireworks for 5 years !!

Jobs that are funded by the taxpayers. Money into the economy comes from lots of students getting financial aid, again, taxpayer money. It is all artificial.

Where do the college problems with the community come from? Research two things, which Trustees do not live in Herkimer County and how does that effect the college's decisions? Second, Which top level administrators live outside Herkimer County and how does that effect decisions, and what are they paid?
