Pugliese pest control

They are not near 70. You might be thinking of their father who had already passed away.  (Mar 24, 2014 | post #10)

charter schools

That's what makes it a charter school and not a private school.  (Feb 14, 2014 | post #2)

You're an idiot, 3.8 GPA or not. College class sizes have nothing to do with class sizes full of CHILDREN who are maturing at different rates.  (Apr 6, 2012 | post #12)

Miracle Home Makeover

there used to be a cash alternative, but the home improvements have been so hyped up the past year or two, I almost think they did away with the cash. Short answer--I'm not sure. Look up the rules and see how the prize is specifically described.  (Apr 3, 2012 | post #2)

Sad, I forgot about this from last year, and of course never heard from the company.  (Apr 3, 2012 | post #72)

Woman walking rott on james st on 3.11 @ 5'ish

there are some people around the same area that let their German Shepherd run loose as well, constantly attacking us and our hound. We finally figured out who the owners are and told the kids (because the parents were apparently not home) to keep their dog on a leash. People act like it's perfectly normal to let dogs run around loose. Last summer I was walking our dog with my small son and some people had their pitts unleashed in O Connor park. If that fence wasn't there, or if the dogs had been smart enough to realize they could have gone around the fence, we all would have been toast. The best part is the little girl was apologizing like it was her fault the adults with her were too stupid.  (Mar 16, 2012 | post #14)

I'm not sure how this is any different than what already occurs in Utica.  (Mar 2, 2012 | post #51)

Utica School District Budget

18-20 would be a great number. However, there are about 28-30 in kindergarten classes right now. It is ridiculous and inexcusable. That is far too many children, not even for the teachers' sakes, but for the kids' sakes! With different learning styles, behaviors, and abilities, it's not even fair what these kids have to deal with. They are indeed the ones that get hurt the most. And I am saying that as a parent.  (Feb 16, 2012 | post #83)

Larger class sizes for Utica schools

what the hell are you talking about? You must be talking about a special ed class because that's the only place you're going to find 8 kids to 3 adults. The kindergarten classes have almost 30 kids and that is far too many. I don't care how it was for you (or I, for that matter) in school with 35 kids in a class. It was different times. Half the class wasn't made up of ESL students. Parents weren't too busy drugging and boozing for the most part to pay attention to their kids at home. All the kids who had any kind of IEP were separated to Special Ed. So don't think you know anything about what's going on. The last thing we need is the classes to be any bigger.  (Jan 28, 2012 | post #3)

Sure Seal Windows

we had ours done and i have no complaints. Our biggest window was probably around $1500 by itself and I mean it's huge. They replaced one basement window that someone broke for $275. So I don't know where these numbers are coming from. This was just 3 years ago too.  (Jan 28, 2012 | post #6)

Manny's cleanup

They're praising Palmieri because he's the one that got it done after MONTHS of Roefaro doing nothing about it. Good thing we didn't get our usual 5 feet of snow or it would still be there till June!  (Jan 24, 2012 | post #42)

WTF sign Planet Fitness

obviously none of you can read that it says "Wow That's Fantastic." It IS a good marketing ploy, from an advertising perspective, because it got you to notice it AND talk about it.  (Dec 14, 2011 | post #9)

Holiday Shopping

statistically, it probably is a fact that more women than men do the "shop till you drop" thing. I get what you're saying though. (I'm a female, fyi.) Women tend to go in groups, make a day of it, have fun with it, etc. Men tend to get what they came for and be done with it. So that's probably why.  (Dec 1, 2011 | post #2)
