In years past, I made it a point to shop in our local stores and purchase locally made products.

This year, I drove to other communities, and walked their Main Street, and purchased their locally made products from their local merchants.

Sorry, Little Falls. Dodging your rubble piles and your garbage just takes me right out of the holiday spirit. And there is no shortage of communities which CAN and DO clean up their rubble piles and their garbage.

Having a Shop Local campaign BEFORE you clean yourself up is putting the cart before the horse, OK? And stringing up decorations and lights over the rubble and garbage just gives you a downtown full of decorated, colorful, rubble and garbage. No, not shopping there.

Shopping is supposed to be a pleasant experience..and it is, in downtowns which pick up their trash. Don't bother responding, as I'm not here to start a debate (as if picking up the garbage should even be debatable) but just in case anyone was wondering why the several hundred dollars I used to spend in Little Falls didn't get spent here this year, that's why.

Why don't you stop this repetition of criticizing the city on this garbage and trash nonsense.Better yet go back to where you shopped and take another look,I think you miseed something because this is one of the more cleaner places.And I might add is nicely decorated for the season.And don't bother responding to this either!

Jean Linen/Shirley, I knew there was some reason why shopping locally seemed more pleasant this year. Thanks for leaving town this weekend, it made the whole thing more enjoyable for the rest of us.

Let us know if you ever need a lift out of town. MANY of us would be glad to help.

Our town does not need someone with such a negative outlook. Sorry about the trash pile on 2nd Street, but the rest of the city has plenty of folks who are really trying to make this a better place. Are you one of those Democrats who believes government should do everything for you? Well, I'm a guy who believes in doing what you can.
But why

Well I for one ALWAYS shop local for my beer, smokes and lottery tickets. I reckon that makes me a better citizen than you. Up with local-yokel power!

You would punish the merchants for the mistakes of the City? You are low. Please, leave whenever you'd like.

It was a great day with lots of people enjoying the day.
A good time was had by all.

This is when Jean comes back and says something like, "If you people want to pretend everything is fine and stick your heads in the sand, go ahead."

Spending a Saturday trying to help our local businesses does not mean we think everything is fine. In fact, it probably shows the opposite.

Your disdain for the mayor is well known and it has some merit. Now you've turned your disdain on everyone in the City? What's wrong with you?

Remember when you were a kid on the playground and there was always one spoiled brat who would take his toys and go home if the other kids didn't do what he wanted?

After factions of our business community going after the YMCA, not a dime of my hard earned money will be spent in their stores or restaurants . Merry Christmas Mr. Scrooge. Neither should anyone else.

What a moron you are. Ya, let's help ourselves by ruining our local economy even more. What a fool you are. Enjoy life at the Y...while it lasts. You've done a lot to help this city.

LOL! Moron? You think maybe that's what we want? I think some people in LF are a little too in love with themselves, and need to feel the heat of their actions. Don't worry, someone will come along and buy up their businesses. It's Little Falls, not Westchester County, or fire island.

Who is "we"? The supporters of the Y? Are you saying that people who support the Y want to destroy our local economy?

And your justification for this is that someone will come along and revive them all?

You are a MORON! And terrible representative of the good folks at the YMCA.
