Rome legion's M3 Stuart Tank

I am going out on a limb here but, I am assuming you are Chris posting. I applaud you efforts to refurbish the tank. It has sat to long neglected, and it would be nice to see the guys in the post all get together on some project like that. I do understand, and know the why's nothing has been done to keep it up over the years. I am a member of the post, and have been for years but I quit going a few years back because of all the bickering going on. However, it was mainly for personal reasons I stopped, and I heard much has changed. I do stop in once in a while when they have fund raisers and parking lot BBQ's just to catch up on the gossip and see what is going on. I just happened to hear and read on what you want to do. I don't remember the guy's name but he would be someone you should contact about helping on the refurbishing the tank. I am too broke down to be of any use except to watch, so thats no help. The guy I mentioned has experience working with museums and with the Confederate Air Force rebuilding planes and vehicles. The post should have his name. He is the guy who built that Liberty Ship that is at the post, and the model of a Vietnam Memorial he wanted to build in Rome. He might tell you to go pound salt, but like I said he has done that type work before and could be of some help. I wish you luck. It would be nice to see the old girl standing proud once again. Later Brother.  (Nov 8, 2013 | post #24)

Where is the indoor sports complex that Mayor Brown promised

As you will notice I have kept pretty quite about these comments. However, Ralph I think there are plenty of things Brown may or may not have done, as well as Fusco as you put it coming to the surface. However, I fail to see any of these allegations on both sides being brought out in any publication or a reliable news source. All I hear is Fusco supporter, and Brown supporter trying to out do each other with gossip or outright fabrications of events. Seems there is quite a bit of finger pointing concerning each other over events or actions from both sides. I certainly don't consider anything that I have read on Topix's as a source to bet my money on as being true. So maybe everyone should consider the source and step back and take a minute to ask if it is worth getting all upset over on who did what or is doing right now. Just my thoughts on it.  (Feb 21, 2013 | post #57)

Fusco insults veterans

I was at St. Peters and noticed there were quite a few guys in different uniforms at the memorial park. I knew they were vets because some could hardly walk and it looked like the uniforms did not quite fit. I walked over and apparently they had their own service for the vets today. One of the guys told me as he was leaving the felt it was their way of paying true respects to those vets that died.  (Nov 12, 2012 | post #14)

9/12/12 Common Council Meeting - NO CONFIDENCE IN MAYOR F...

What I will say is after this news Garrett is suing the city I would be very carful as to what you say. If I remember the article in the paper it was mentioned that either threats or some comments were made against him. Since he has opened a law suit it is quite possible that Topix would be force by court order to open its files to aid in this suit. This would mean if you are not aware Topix would have to provide threads, comments, and the name and email of the person posting. So you might want to consider not saying anything until this is over. That is unless you don't have a problem with them having the information.  (Nov 12, 2012 | post #54)
