All I can say is Halleluia, Sweet Baby Jeebus!! We are finally rid of this half wit who can barely cobble a column together. Her attempts at being cool and hip as well as the know all end all of the arts scene in the Mohawk Valley were all too painful to watch. I for one will no longer have my blood pressure go up when reading her vapid column and seeing all the (cute little asides, quips, and being just so cool) insertions. Poor Community Foundation- they know not what they get. I can't wait to see communications come from there offices with little (aren't we so helping all the unfortunates). Peggy O'Shea will skewer her within a year.

I thought she did good work and was interesting. A lot of the good people are leaving. Why? How about no raise in 3 years. How about their CEO Mike Reed getting a $750K bonus on top of his $500K salary? How about working for an unprofessional Editor like Kris Worrell? How about working for the OD in general? All good reason to leave.

Thank you for your critique. She's still the ultimate bogus make pretend journalist.(and I use that term loosely) Her columns were embarrassing to read.

How about sports columnists that get paid to tell us what birds are at their feeder or what their cousin cooks at hunting camp?

the column she wrote about her mother was excellent. It was pretty much about how she came home from college after getting pregnant and her mother was a rock.

Cassaundra baber is a local hack who never gets even half of her facts right. She is lucky that Utica runs on friends and family or she would be unemployable.

the only time that her work was below standard was when she decided to become a "food critic" and bashed area restaurants and staff leaving a not so good lasting impression. shame on her for that. do know she was reprimanded for that and the food columns ceased.
