fusco hires a TUTOR

Been there and done that with NY's Public Ethics. They are looking the other way.  (Oct 16, 2014 | post #10)

fusco hires a TUTOR

Yes it is and the county DA, federal prosecuter and others have all in their hands. It is just that they won't do anything. Let an ordinary citizen do this and they would be hung by, be nice, their thumbs.  (Oct 15, 2014 | post #5)

fusco hires a TUTOR

If a city employee is running a private business out of his office at city hall on city time and using another city employee to help run that business instead of doing their job which the mayor is OK with, you will have to hire someone else to do their work. The business is Positively Rome and it is not a city program. It is a DBA created by Keep America Beautiful Rome, NY inc. that has Jacob DiBari's signature as the responsible person and has been running the bussiness out of city hall.  (Oct 14, 2014 | post #3)

Rumble at RFA

Why no news about the seven students arrested for fighting at RFA in the Sentinel? Another look the other way and it will go away some how by the Super, board and Sentinel.  (Oct 10, 2014 | post #1)

City water for Rt. 233 residents in Whitestown

Promise broken by Mayor and Council. Resolution on the agenda to sell water to them. Senator Griffo will freeze state grant money for the west Rome extension. He really cares about Rome. Not.  (Oct 6, 2014 | post #1)

Historic house JAMES ST

The Rome Main Street Alliance got well over $100,000 from the city, CDBG and Facade, some of which was used as a match for other state grants. The O-D had it wrong about how much these building pay in property taxes. That was their total assessment for the two buildings. Put some $200,000 into your proerty and see what your assessment would be. Not around $60,000. There is a strong argument that those buildings should have been torn down. The big question is whether or not those buildings will return enough property taxes before more tax dollars have to be spent to keep them up. Why not let the market determine which buildings are worth saving?  (Aug 2, 2014 | post #56)

Check the city's property assessment rolls. It has sale information available for this property so you can accurate info.  (Aug 1, 2014 | post #45)

Historic house JAMES ST

The owners sold off anything of value in the house to collectors and others. Now Rome Alliance has to change its cover. ferlo and that group sat on their hands while the house went down hill. They must not have thought it was worth saving.  (Jul 29, 2014 | post #25)

francor, You are right about their own agenda. Mayor Brown did not rehab the rest of the neighborhood as promised. To invest any more money into the house was a bad investment since there would be no return on that investment. When they sold it they did take a loss. The market determined whether or not it was worth saving. Notice the lack of insulation when it came down. Would you want to pay that heat bill? Once the Advisory Committee was set up, I was an original member, we changed the three years to five years and would not have allowed as much to be put into one property. By the way, the Advisory Committee was established at the request of HUD to try to prevent giving CDBG funds as political favors. Certain people in Rome like to throw good money after bad to help certain people.  (Jul 28, 2014 | post #16)

Slaughterhouses

Hey! Don't try to get me involved in this meat processing plant issue. I have enough on my plate. Argue this stuff under your own name.  (Jul 25, 2014 | post #35)

Rome legion's M3 Stuart Tank

Those B52's I'm talking about were on the pads next to the hangers on Hanger Road. Some of us remember when we could be on perimeter road and watch those silver bombs be brought back to the bomb area. Yes, all the planes on the nose docks and ready pad could fly and had bombs on them, not just cruise missles until the last years of the base. Sorry frankcor, i thought I could impart some accurate information to the masses.  (Jun 16, 2014 | post #104)

B52, Yes, those B52's parked on the pads next to the hangers could fly. However, they could not carry a load of bombs or anything else because of their metal fatigue. Maybe you never noticed the wavy sheet metal skin over the planes. It was a way of making our flying force look bigger than it was. Some B52's have been modified and repaired and are still flying and able to carry a full load of bombs.  (Jun 15, 2014 | post #101)

Frankcor, Obviously, the fake Joe Sal doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground. That is exactly what they did during the "cold war". The spy sats couldn't tell which planes were operational or not operational. A lot went on at the base that idiots like the fake Joe could never understand. I bet he even thinks the government is here to help him.  (Jun 15, 2014 | post #97)

The B52 at Griffiss Park was retired from use because of metal fatigue. When the base was in operation there were several B52's that were taken out of service for the same reason and moved around on the pads in front of the hangers to confuse the Soviets into thinking they were operational. These B52's that were retired for metal fatigue could not be flown with a load of bombs on them. They were well beyond being able to make repairs and be made fully operational.  (Jun 14, 2014 | post #94)
