What Would Jesus Do ?

Jesus would know what was ment by what was said by whom ever said it. We havs free will to say and do what ever we wish. We have to do what ever we feel he would what us to do. If that is not what he wants, we will pay for that at the final judgment.  (Mar 10, 2010 | post #4)

Herkimer County Legislature

I feel that if these 3 or 4 legislators have their way there will only be the legislature, the county offices,THE NEW JAIL,the collage and a lot of not for profit groups left in Herkimer County. It seems to me that all the county depts. that benefit the ordinary taxpayer are slowly being gotten rid of. First it was Hospice and then Public Health is in deep trouble and The Country Manor now. All of these benefit the average Joe. It seems when 1 legislator had their mother in the Manor,it was great but now that they are no longer there it is time to rid ourselves of this burden. There is way too much of this back room politics going on. Why should the Herkimer county taxpayer subsidize a hospital group that has more money than God. I feel it is time for the people of Herkimer County to really pay attention to what kind of government is running this county and who is really getting the benefit.  (Mar 9, 2010 | post #7)

Our Money Casales Firm

Mr. Keblish seems to be a good person and seems to care about Herkimer County. I hope he does not allign with Mr Bono, Mr Piseck or Mr. Russell too often or HE might not get re-elected for a second term. Hopefully the other 3 don't get re-elected and the county might have a chance of becoming a good honost place to live.  (Mar 8, 2010 | post #21)

Herkimer County lawmakers discuss Country Manor's future

The legislators must be in office 10 years to get their health insurance for life. The rest of the county workers have to work for the county for 25 years to get theirs for life. I did not see anywhere in here that said that they did not pay a share of the cost.  (Feb 12, 2010 | post #22)

Public Health lost 4 good people on Monday

Herkimer County, like large companys is top heavy. It would only take 2 or 3 positions of chair warmers to make a good size dent in our cost of business, but those are people who control who goes and who stays. It is always the little guy who gets the ax, because execs are not going to give up their positions, they always make it look like we don't need the real caregivers and workers. No one wants to give a good job for someone else.  (Feb 11, 2010 | post #18)

Herkimer County lawmakers discuss Country Manor's future

To make the County Administrator an elected position there has to be a change in the county charter. It can be done because it was done in '68. That is why we are in a pickle now. If things keep going the way that they are going now, The only thing left in the county will be the legislators.  (Feb 10, 2010 | post #14)

Herkimer County lawmakers discuss Country Manor's future

I have lived ih Herkimer for over 40 years and feel now that the county legislature is controlled by 3 members. These people have been wanting to rid the county of the Country Manor for a very long time.I feel that the selling of the Manor should be brought to a referendum and voted on by the taxpayers of the county. It is too important to leave to a few who seem to have their own agenda. To have to pay VHS $1,000,000.00 to rid us of the Manor seems very wrong. It seems to me that these legislators would much rather have a 35 million dollar jail we don,t need for people we don't want from other counties to have to pay for. Everyone gets older and may need a decent caring place to live after paying taxes all their lives. It seems to me that these few legislators would much rather have a bunch of felons who owe society a dept living here than good people who have payed their taxes and lived good lives here in Herkimer County.  (Feb 7, 2010 | post #7)
