What an educational and cultural experience it would be for children studying the forming of this nation to actually see a real 13 stared flag.

Linda Vincent is out in left field on this one, and all of Little Falls knows it.

Even after this story broke...
I question the sharpness of their decision making...
They withdrew the inaugration invitations...
and continued with the auction of the flag.

To use Ms Vincent's words...
Which serves the "educational, social and cultural needs of the community” more ?

Flag... or invitation ?

I'd say flag... without question.

"Let he who is without sin cast the first stone"....or was it "people who live in glass houses shouldn't get stoned" ? Shame on you busy bodies. At least she steps up and does some of the needed civic duties.I have met her and found her to be well meaning and intelligent.Far be it for a well mannered lady or gentleman to cast unwarranted
aspersions.Fie.Fie . Shame to thee.

Vincent has thought her crap hasn't stunk for as long as I can remember and that was when I was in church school. Peter Adasek hasn't lived in the area for how lon? Yeah he owns an old house near Stewarts and live off the interest of a law suit but hell. He hasn't been a working Dr. in how long? He's really is just sticking his nose in a community that he has no direct involvement in. So he pays taxes on a old stone building. Wooppee!!

As far Chester P. Szymanski is concerned....you don't have space because you don't want to make space....It's sort of like saying I don't have time for a hobby.....you don't have time because you don't make it.

People sticking up for retards and people selling stuff because of greed. Sonsofbitches...bwah..ha..ha.. ha

how much did the flag go for and who has the money. as for room for the flag has been here for years. you could ask for a tour of the second and third floors at any time.,this has been known for years.i know that a friend of gave some old beatiful dishes to library. i think that a flag is more important educationally than dishes. they could of had the flag framed and hung it in the library or put it out to loan to the schools.----BUT when are they going to atten to business and get someone in charge of the library befor that goes to pot like the streets of little falls???? thank goodness they have a honest cappable staff.

Well, since they don't serve the social, educational, or cultural needs of the community, then they need to go. Right?

BTW, I cannot believe that there was no space in the LF Library for Ms. Vincent to "spread out and look at" a box of "stuff". Break room? Board room? She had to take it home?? As a business owner (and antique dealer) she should have seen the conflict of interest in this action right away and protected herself from accusations of theft by following procedure! Anyone who has worked anywhere knows this. This has turned out to be a very serious matter indeed.

But she is beyond reproach - just ask her!
RESIGN

Because she still doesn't get it -- the appearance of a conflict of interests is not different from an actual conflict of interest -- Mrs. Vincent needs to resign.

It was "stuff" when it was in the library but becomes an "antique" or a "collectible" when it's at home above the Mill antique shops.

Unfortunately, Mrs Vincent can never prove her innocence. So for the good of the board, she should resign. And if the board doesn't get it, they too should resign.

The library board must increase transparency at this important time.

Trustees require the trust of the community if they are to fulfill their responsibilities. Mrs Vincent has lost that trust and the board will follow if this continues on.

Maybe the flag's (just more stuff?)$10k should be spent on some big ol' library tables so Mrs Vincent can have room to spread her stuff while its still where the public can see it.

Lot's of stuff goin' on.

What difference would THAT make ?
A local girl... or an 'import'....?
silly question.

She owns a business...
She is on several boards...
She serves her city as best she can...

Citizens are equal...

Well, that is the case in theory. Now I personally now NOTHING about what is or is not going on over at the library, BUT my experience with Herkimer County is that justice is not blind, and law enforcement is highly selective, all depending on your last name (and the last name of your attorney, if it ever goes that far).

Some citizens are more equal than others. Just as her. She bought her way onto Munson Williams Proctor Institute board. That is how all their board members are "selected". Check it out.
