I don't know about you Joe--but I'd be at Gertrude Hawks today getting candy for that office--you hit the nail on the head when you mentioned who is he to dictate to me how to spend my money--There is nothing wrong with what you did--he made YOU feel YOU were wrong--when in actuality HE was the one who was wrong--I've often taken a piece of candy from the same place-- It was a kind gesture--one YOU should keep up-- who is he to tell you-- Joe-- there is a point here to be corrected-- you allow him to stop you--another person gets away with controlling us-- what time do you want me to pick you up-- we can go to Nibbles and Bits on Blakely Street-- or gerties----which one?

This Ron guy needs to be tested-- who brings that candy in now that is there? How is it different than yours--I agree Joe--it is the principle of the matter-- That woman in that office better sign up for weight watchers--i have a feeling she will have lots to nibble on soon--rightfully so-- it's not like you're bringing her broccoli--Time to dig into Ron-- may be small fish--but it needs to be broiled--

Joe, dig on this guy. I have a friend who was in rehab with a Ron McKay. Don't know if it is the same person but if you can post some facts about his work hisotry it would help. There were a lot of poeple wurprised that he got that position, then again, many weren't surprised at all. Crony is not the word for Rom McKay. It's worse than that.

Parks, Recreational Facilities, and Community Facilities
The Plan suggests that the City focus its early efforts towards restoring Nay Aug Park and Weston Field, the systems showcase parks. While the major rehabilitation of the fieldhouse at Weston Field is ongoing, much progress has already been made at Nay Aug Park since the Plan was issued; some examples are:
A modern swimming complex that includes two waterslides;
A wildlife center that includes a tiger, a cougar, and several primates, offering families a free source of wholesome entertainment;
A large childrens playground (with a section for the exclusive use of children aged five years and below) that was built entirely with volunteer labor under the supervision of Leathers & Associates, of Ithaca, NY;
A hiking trail that leads to the Nay Aug Gorge, a National Natural Landmark;
A restored greenhouse that plays a key educational role in the Scranton School Districts BEST Program; and
A five-hundred seat amphitheater that will play host to all types of performances, including the popular Childrens Theater.
At present, Nay Aug Park is functioning effectively as a community recreation center, offering something for everyone. Those projects that are currently underway should be finished and future efforts will primarily relate to maintenance and upkeep to ensure that the Park remains a vibrant, attractive destination point for Scrantonians.

The treehouse is nothing but propaganda at the level of the built environment.
The treehouse says that Scranton is a progressive city concerned with public recreation and integration of the classes (consistent with Olmstead's project). Meanwhile, the city as well as the park system has been segmented: SS complex is sold off to U of S while a 'pocket park' is built for yuppies. The City spends countless resources for the parade while children in the neighborhoods are charged to swim.

We're asking people to step up and to donate because I think this says something about who we are as a community, that we would step up and donate so that we remember those who have allowed us to enjoy the life that we have today," -Mayor Chris Doherty, as quoted on ABC affiliate WNEP's "Newswatch 16."
I think it says something when the mayor forgoes the troops returning to watch a b-ball game.
I think it says something when the mayor refuses to authorize paying the difference between military pay and the regular pay of our troops serving overseas, so they worry about the bills and their spouses and kids suffer.
I think it says something when those who protect your life and property haven't recieved a raise in six years.
I think it says something when those of us who support our troops, support our police, fire and EMS workers and respect the people who give their lives for others, when those of us who put on fireproof jackets, bulletproof vests or spend our days in the back of ambulances, are told we need to donate to a project designed to make the mayor, rather than the people allegedly being honored, look good.
It says our mayor is a hypocrit and so much more.
Doherty had ample opportunity to honor America's heros and consistently dropped the ball. Now, suddenly, it's at the top of his list to do so. Someone, in my opinion, is going to benefit from the mayor's sudden interest and I firmly believe it won't be the vets.
If you're still unsure about the mayor's interest in the vets, doesn't it make you wonder why the sudden interest in a display at Nay Aug when we, the people of Lackawanna County are currently spending millions on a veterans plaza at the county courthouse?
I'd venture a guess- because it's not associated with Doherty and he won't get any credit for it. It's not, in my opinion, about the vets. It's about a mayor who's becoming less relevant by the day.
Now, who's going to build this monument? That may very well answer another question or two.

don't understand why we are building a memorial in a city park for five veterans who were not city residents, when we already have the veterans memorial at the courthouse (I would assume in memory or honor of all county veterans). This makes no sense to me whatsoever.

Wizzy, it makes all the sense in the world. He gets a no bid crony to DO the job, gets some money back in campaign contributions and gets a photo-op to show how nice he is to veterans. Another win-win. It makes all the sense in the world.
If you like that, I have more to share in person, look for me on ManHunt - Scranton Fireman!!!
I'll rock your world sweetheart!!!!
