ti dog park

If an owner knows their dog isn't "dog friendly" then he should let the other people know before they enter the pen with this dog...so the owner can leash him and take him out of pen.....not all dogs automatically like other dogs....being loose on a public pooch pen ..to me is stupid...build one in your yard....I personally prefer to walk my dog...as he enjoys that more also....but if my dog was attacked by another dog ..the owner of the other dog should be pay vet bills....and I also agree with leashing your dogs as you introduce them ..and if they don't get along you have control of them...  (Jun 21, 2013 | post #14)

Wow!

I find it totally entertaining.... the business in the area that must drug test their employees to keep certificates, licenses, other credentials. .and then the employees fails nothing is done about it....drug test are expensive...but I guess if they wanna waste their money....my point being this....the said employee has been drug tested and popped positive...when that employee while on the job causes death or injury to them self or another ...guess who is responsible....THE EMPLOYER.....drug testing IS A SAFETY ISSUE AND SHAME ON ANY EMPLOYER WHO FAILS IN ADDRESSING THE PROBLEM ..THROUGH REHAB,COUNSELING..AND IF THEY FAIL...TERMINATION.....there is no excuse to ignore safety....and I agree if you see someone driving recklessly and could be drunk...,,u call the police.....and the same for drugs...you turn them in before something happens....told ya so....does nothing for the victim.....  (May 6, 2013 | post #8)

you sound offended "dumb"an d no snitch I certainly NEVER EVER EVER SAID THE RESIDENTS SHOULD NOT BE OUT IN PUBLIC....but I am aware that a lot of the employees monitor this site and of course pump it up with great stuff about M.M....i said I was concerned for their safety...as well as the public...that In no way states lock these people up...and these people have rights....for which I am not infringing upon ...but who is responsible ultimately for their safety ?regardless of anything said on this site ...m m has always had a bad reputation and it is the same place now just different problems...  (Apr 14, 2013 | post #29)

True Crime in the Adirondacks

ALLISON BAKER WAS THE ONE MURDERED AND FOUND IN HAGUE....this should have been an open and shut case but due to the fact the police contaminated the crime scene (not like they actually had murder experience) and that she was not from a prominent family....no body cared...to me this is Ticonderoga's biggest unsolved crime and miscarriage of justice...Allison did not deserve what happened to her and I love to so this crime solved and the murder convicted.  (Apr 10, 2013 | post #64)

Snitches.....I debate nothing that you said and If you read my previous post....you will see that I said exactly what you just stated. Im aware m.m is not a prison and the residents have rights...but so does the public....and the activity of begging and loitering are against the law....but im not looking to have these people arrested or anything like that...im just concerned for the safety issue...of BOTH THE RESIDENT AND THE PULIC..perhaps this is a topic better looked into by the town fathers and acted upon...  (Apr 8, 2013 | post #26)

im not discriminating at all...I feel for these residents and fear for their safety....especial ly with summer coming and the town is full of tourist...and yes your correct these residents for the most part do have "issues" your 100% right and Im just leery of them getting hurt or perhaps hurting "not intentionally " someone else....I was told stewarts did complain....im shocked that this issue hasn't been addressed before....I just think its necessary to find away these residents can safely patronize a store without infringing on their freedom or that of other customers SAFELY....they get what they need with their money and leave....no loitering..no begging...come and go like regular customers....im just concerned they are all over town unsupervised....th e other local agencies that care for people with"issues " are supervised....thei r are animals that bully people like the residents....  (Apr 7, 2013 | post #24)

DUMB ....suits you....because im only relaying what was told to me on the phone when I called M.M...if this is not true then only another lie they said to cover themselves from accountability of the safety of the residents and the public...but I go to stewarts and check with jeff and confirm this....but again you have stated what I initially said everyone in town that frequents any of the local business's on Montcalm street has seen these residents sitting outside of business's asking for money and cigarettes ,rides....but your right I have seen a male resident outside of stewarts on numerous occasions begging, although not recently. Someone from out of town might be spooked by him as he does appear kinda creepy .  (Apr 6, 2013 | post #22)

silly silly nurse 2....you are wrong and yes I did have a family member resident there....and for your information ..I don't need to lie...guess I struck a nerve....don't try and cover-up now.....I didn't even mention that I was also told in this conversation that stewarts had banned m.m residents from there because of harassing customers.....so if you think what I said isn't true you better check your facts because I have..but everyone in town sees this and knows what I am saying is a fact..so please nurse2....if you care so much then fix it..because my call there certainly didn't but I got your attention now....  (Apr 6, 2013 | post #20)

TICONDEROGA — Two teens are accused of breaking into THS

Don't blame the kids blame he town...are you serious....kids are to blame for the choices they make....regardless of family name,income ,education, these tweens do know right from wrong....and they continuously choose the wrong....and people like you are adding to the problem....excuses and blame....on everyone and everything other than with the tween....this only fosters the belief that their bad behavior isn't their fault....well it is...as for the School...it is a great school for this type of area...but you cant force kids to get an education anymore than you can force them to learn and be a straight b student...There is nothing here too keep any talented ,well educated person here....as there are no jobs of that stature...I.P is a joke...regardless of your credentials ...only family and friends let into that club...been that way for generations....all you can do is medical,law enforcement in this area anyway...  (Apr 5, 2013 | post #24)

I have a family member at Montcalm Manor and familiar with the other residents there ...I saw a resident at the Gas station begging customer for cigs,money,aride.. ..I called Montcalm Manor to let them know and ..I was told the store owner needs to call them and ban them from the property..and I could call the police if im that bothered...call the police seriously...mY CONCERN LIES WITH THE SAFETY OF THE RESIDENT...and pan handling and accosting customers can become annoying to the customer or an out of towner who doesn't know that they are "disabled " and they feel threatened and may hurt the resident....SAFETY of the residents should be a priority and as someone who has been in Montacalm Manor for all the staff changes ...I will say Montcalm Manor lives up to its nasty reputation....and no this new admin..is the absolute worst... For as long as I have been visiting there I have never seen the head boss at the manor ever...They go threw staff like water ...residents suffer for this..I know my next contact will be ALBANY its obvious no one cares at Moncalm Manor...  (Apr 5, 2013 | post #17)

Ticonderoga businesses crashing??

I did on J.t...but i live in ticonderoga and am hardly as nieve as you to believe any of those fine people working in the fuel oil side had no idea what was happening because i know for fact customers called and repeatedly called complaining of no delivery and BTW...IT WAS NOT J.T they talked to...i dont blame the employees for what j.t did....but i would hope if your smart enough to use a cash register and answer the phone you have the integrity and balls to do the right thing...as these people getting ripped off live in this town and you will see them and they will see you....im sorry but my sympathy lies with the elderly people and the familys with small children and everyone else that suffered through the cold spells waiting for a fuel delivery that never came while they were unable to get it elsewhere because the heap money went to j.t.....i feel for the victims not the criminal......as for the employees in my book....if you know about a crime and fail to take action while innocent people a suffering...your as guilty as the perpatrator....  (Mar 7, 2013 | post #54)

Ti mill seconds

with all the real issues of how I.P has continually hired family,friends of employees and recieved grants to help the area people and again found a back door to hire people recieving a pension and rather than someone qualified and unemployed who needs a job....the mill has always been a payton place and they dont hire those young pretty wayyyyy under qualified girls for nothing...there are alot more experienced woman out there but because they dont play those games they dont get hired...unless of course their family member works there...i.p is a joke.....  (Mar 7, 2013 | post #61)

Ticonderoga businesses crashing??

You said it...HE EMPLOYEES.....not the customers.....and if you want peoples business..then treat them well...value them and dont cheat them....i personally dont go there prices are higher...but again...its JT and his business ethics...that will get and keep customers to keep the business going and expanding and yes to keep and hire new employees or destroy his business......and no i dont think its the publics responsibility to foot the bill for employees and their jobs when JT didnt.....as far as innocent...i wonder how many of them knew what was going on...they do answer the phones..lol  (Mar 5, 2013 | post #49)
