And you wonder why good people don't run for office. I have never even sold one bag of pot in my life or any other drugs.I was a captain and owner of a charter yacht business in south FL. If you got caught with even one bag of pot on board, Customs could impound you yacht. It was the same coming and going into the Bahamas. We had countless offers to use our yacht as a truck to haul bails of pot from the mother ship and run it into Ft Lauderdale, Palm Beach or Miami and we never did it. I met Joan on a charter to Key West in 1979. She was there on vacation. Joan is an excellent cook and a good boat hand and we continued to Charter until In 1983 one of our customers bought his own yacht, a 58 ft Hatteras Yacht Fish with twin turbo 8V92 GM engines and hired us to run that yacht for him. He was a real estate developer in Cleveland Ohio. His name was Tom Snavely. The yacht's name was the Molly Jane named after his two daughters. Joan and I ran his yacht 35000 nautical miles with only miner mishaps. We made four complete round trips from the Great Lakes to Florida. We cruised every Great Lake except Superior. We cruised the Thousand Islands, we made a passage thru the Trent Severn water way thru Canada thru all the locks to the Georgian Bay and the North Channel. We cruised every island in the Bahamas. In 1986, we decided to come ashore and we wanted to start a seasonal business close to our camp at Honnedaga. We never intended to live here year round but our business grew and we needed help and the rest is history. We thought Forestport was going to be a friendly town like Mayberry but were we wrong. We had a camp at Honnedaga, moved here from Florida, something about boats and airplanes got the tongues wagging. That and the fact that Richard Parker was busted for drugs right before we moved here sealed our fate. Joan and I were so upset that I went down to see the sheriff. His name was Bill Hasenauer. I asked him if there was anything he could do to help. There really wasn't anything he could do at the time. Now there is something Bill H can do to help. Tap into that old gossip and use it to smear us so he can retain power.So many of you just follow along. It must really bother some of you that we could come here to Forestport and carve out a successful business. We did it with hard work, countless hours in a freezing cold shop and by doing quality work. Here is an artical written by Marty Allen in 1999......

You are the dirty campaign. This my opinion. If the IP address is Rome or Utica, then it is you or one of your many personalites making comments. I think you have dragged local politics to a new level. And to think I could have supported you at one time. Keep bragging about your world travel and how LUCKY WE ARE to have you spreading your wisdom upon us all. So you originally thought we were Mayberry (i.e. stupid locals). You are pathetic. We are not hillbillies. You are not royalty. Give it a rest and stop the illusion. Seek counseling.

Ha Ha. 'Local' and 'Really Parker'-you sound like you are jelous of Parker Snead-his travels, success..the fact that he is a person with dreams and a vision. And the fact that he has the courage and drive to make them happen probably makes you feel like the sorry, bitter non-achiever that you undoubtably are. Oh, and Mayberry is an iconic American dream town where life and people are near perfect. He never refered to the people of Forestport as hillbillies, you did.

What ever you do, VOTE in the Primary! We have Supervisor choices and choices for Highway Super.
Council persons, well that is another story...
Guess I will vote for the business man who runs an honest business and really is a Forestport native.

The Black River Enhancement grant for the Woodhull road Boat launch.... It is kind of just a big gravel parking lot .... Trees and bushes have been planted around it, the trees and bushes were at a cost in the thousands. Too bad a nursery from the town,like Matteson's couldn't have been used, Aren't trees and bushes only $30.00 a piece or so?

Certain members from the town had personal issues with them over signs and it was believed to be the reason they were not used!

If that is the site on the other side of the river past the bridges, that boat launch is a lovely site, and good for those older persons who may need flatland to launch from. It is harder on the launch site by the bridges, due to the hill at the launch site there.

the site on top of the dam is not a usable launch for boats on trailers , it has a BIG drop off that the wheels will go over , good for car tops maybe ...

How would people know there is a better and easier site for launching, if there are no signs???
Who has that property, if it is State, then there should be no problem with signage. There isn't any problems with the surrounding properties at the existing launch site........

Mr. Gardner stated that he has spoken with Town Attorney Riley and the NYS DOT
regarding the opening of the Twin Bridges. They advised Mr. Gardner that the
bridges cannot reopen until the guardrails and signs are in place.
