After reading tonights paper, I have to comment on this group. First off- who do these people think that they are? Have you taken a ride down our Main St. lately? You have got to be kidding me. Where is all of this revitalization? Am I missing something here? Where have these so called soncerned citizens of this group been all of these years? Where were they when all of this Canal revitalization was going on? I mean spending all of that money for that park on Canal place is the biggest farce yet. Who actually goes there? And why the reason for 10 ligts within 5 feet of each other? The ideal situation was to put the boat launchin Columbus Park. What a gem that would've been. But no, instead we put benches and a ton of lights on the canal at the Canal Place location!! Where were these people for this project??????

Now after reading tonights paper they recommend to explore the ongoing revitalization of downtown. R U Serious? Have you driven down our Main St. lately? Am I missing something here? And then they look into a crystal ball or something to predict that Big M will close. How do they know this for sure? And I say AMEN if it does. Then they should quit whining and bellyaching and finally get a good dept store when Big M closes. You could put it where BIG M and the Movie gallery were. Wow-- what a boost this would be for downtown. Imagine actually being able to FINALLY shop in downtown LF? And being able to buy clothing and things here in L.F? I say WAKE UP people in L.F. We are smarter than this. This group of Main St. First people are ONE BIG JOKE!! Thank you Very Much!!!!! And that's the end of this story.

And another thing in tonights paper where they say to "explore efforts to enhance the quality of life in L.F. by encouraging cultural and ARTS RELATED enterprises to locate downtown." First off get rid of the filth that hangs out in our downtown, then worry about the rest. Yah, and just what we need-- cultural and ARTS REALTED businesses here. This is not Saratoga Springs!!!! People need money to spend in places like these, and who has that kind of money now a days? WE need a good dept. store downtown to attract people here, not this "Artsie" crap!!!

Yes. You are missing your common sense. Why? First, a department store is a non-starter with a WalMart five minutes away. Second, you are one of those negative people who see only the bad in Little Falls and not the good. Third, you have a group of people who are finally trying to make things better, and you want them to shut up.

That said, the article in the paper was just freaking bizarre. It sounds to me like there is a loose cannon rolling around on the deck of the good ship MSF.

My advice: relax and enjoy the squabble between the City and MSF. The City needs to learn that it has real limits to its power, and MSF is good entertainment.

But arts is what is working right now. You go with what works. We can't turn back the clock and put cheese factories and paper mills and stuff here just because we miss them.

Yup. Called a friend who supports Main Street 1st about the paper, and he was like "WTF?" also.

Yes. He sent us a very nice postcard from the past. Kind of noncommittal of him, eh? "I won't shit in Bob's mess-kit so long as he don't shit in my mess-kit."

Okay listen up, because this important and nobody is talking about it. Some person who posts as sicandtired first raised this issue and nobody followed up.

People say they want Little Falls to grow, but if we are going to grow, we can get ONE of TWO kinds of people:

1.) Affluent people (i.e., those "snobs" who have moved here and tried to change it).

2.) Welfare queens and deadbeats.

If you keep making Little Falls a nice place to live (and it IS a nice place to live!), then you will have more and more affluent people move here. And they WILL try to change things. That is what affluent people do. That is why they are affluent, and how they stay affluent. And yes, affluent people like the arts, as a whole.

But guess what else? Little Falls has less than 5,000 people left. And nearly 1 out of 5 of those are OLD PEOPLE. If we don't get new people to move here, there won't be a "here" here much longer.

Thanks for the reality check"Listen Up"Yep .. whithin the next 10 or 15 years 20% of the current population will be leaving feet first.Personally , I like living here because it is nice and quiet. I understand ,however , that there has to be a stable tax base to support all of the operations we require. I would be more than happy to have a municipality where people worked elsewhere and came home at night to family and home....We need a healthy mix of tourism , factories,stable business,large and small, art ,services and a good transportation network. We are not that far from the mark. Some tweaking,investment ,a good attitude ,a lot less dissing and a little luck can glide us through another century.

Bucolic. That's a nice word. You are always teaching us fun new words, like 'bucolic' and 'stunad'. But let me ask, is it hard for you to say 'bucolic', what with having no teeth and all?

It's a great place to live. My biggest fear is actually not the quarry mall destroying jobs blighting the downtown (which is a genuine worry), but is rather losing the hospital. That is pretty essential for attracting people to LF.

Yeah, he's up for re-election this year so you can bet he won't say anything bad about this proposed development.
