Why do so many people write off our home?

My question is to the ones who bad mouth this area so much, WHY NOT LEAVE! No one cares that you hate it here, if you’re over 18 just get the heck out of here!! And sorry "Phaistos " if there are any kids still using the OD to find jobs they need not come back here; there are lots of jobs in the area! The problem currently is that the older population is holding the good positions, and with little new businesses starting and thriving here they don't have many great jobs, but a job earning 40K a year here is some what easy to find! But you need to not be lazy and look for it. Then with in a few years move up, or move to another company now that you have experience to a 60K a year job. For Utica 40K is more than enough to live comfortably on. I have many friends who moved to the city to work for double what they would make here, and the poor bastards can't even afford to go out on a Friday night down there, so only have a few nights a week with great things to do is not so bad when you consider other things like all of the outdoor activities that are so near!. So my point is, no one is keeping you here, if you really don’t like it leave! The only reasons I’m considering moving from the area is the taxes, that’s it!!  (Jul 20, 2009 | post #21)

The war on alcohol continues

The only time I would disagree is a case here in NY where the bartender carried the drunk out to her car, started it and buckled her in for safety!!! But other than pure gross stupidity, take some damn responsibility!!!  (Jul 16, 2009 | post #7)

Lance you're right, its dead! I just can't understand why everything is someone elses fault!! It is really sad to see. I try to teach my son that you stand up and admit when you're wrong. But when you see things like that it makes me wonder why I bother!  (Jul 16, 2009 | post #5)

pick up your pants and get on the sidewalk

Haha I just left a comment about this on another post, so again POLICE PLEASE READ THIS!!! Article 27 of the Vehicle and Traffic Code(VAT) § 1156. Pedestrians on roadways. (a) Where sidewalks are provided and they may be used with safety it shall be unlawful for any pedestrian to walk along and upon an adjacent roadway. (b) Where sidewalks are not provided any pedestrian walking along and upon a highway shall when practicable walk only on the left side of the roadway or its shoulder facing traffic which may approach from the opposite direction. Upon the approach of any vehicle from the opposite direction, such pedestrian shall move as far to the left as is practicable. So start writing damn TICKETS!!! Get them out of the streets!!! They even walk their strollers 3 wide down the middle of the road, just hoping someone hits them so they can sue!!! When any friends of mine come in from out of town they are always amazed that it is allowed!!!  (Jul 15, 2009 | post #5)

Frank Vescera's vision for mobile police unit

Frank Vescera's vision for mobile police unit

Getting rid of criminals is as simple as creating more contact with potential criminals (everyone). Police can do this by simply increasing man power slightly to allow more time for things like; pulling over every car that you LEGALLY can for things like running stop signs, speeding, failure to use a turn signal, doing this alone will result in far more contacts where the possibility or taking drugs and guns of the streets as well as the criminals. Just look at today’s paper, guns and drugs recovered from traffic stop, the only reason police started to pull him over was driving infractions. Also use lesser utilized laws that are already in place like in Article 27 of the VAT violation 1156 states that pedestrians are not permitted to walk in the streets when there is a passable sidewalk. Each person you write a citation will; one create revenue, two gives the officer a chance to "terry" search that individuals which will again turn up more weapons, more drugs and get more criminals out of Utica!! The fact is if you pester criminals enough they will not stay here! They will go somewhere else, and to me that’s a very good thing!!!! So lets not Spend money on unproven things, these techniques have been used by other cities and worked wonders!! Look at NYC from the 80’s till now!! And that is why they are in Utica now!!!  (Jul 15, 2009 | post #8)

Why won’t UPD do their job?? I know they are busy but come ON!! How many of them do you think could be carrying narcotics?? Seems like maybe we should be stopping them all and doing a "terry search" while we write them a citations for their violation.  (Jul 2, 2009 | post #36)

2 men beat up on Lincoln Ave in Utica on 6/13

Just because someone walks through your yard does not mean you can do whatever you want to them. You need to ask them to leave, if they resist, the cops should be called, if there is an immediate need for them to leave, then you can use only the force necessary to get them to leave, And just for the record, if you knock them out, they can't leave, and if he had died, all the men involved could be charged with homicide. So, going to jail over someone walking through your yard, (which they probably only rent so don't really have a claim to) just doesn't sound all that smart. However we live in Utica Idiots from the top down!  (Jun 25, 2009 | post #26)

Helmets

Yeah, but they did another study that showed the increase of weight of the helmet causes their little necks to break, so now they don't make them wear them.  (Jun 25, 2009 | post #3)
