Unfortunate it took a council person to bring up the "snow in the street" issue - people have been complaining for years.....

Jeers to all the people who keep saying in their letters to the editor that the state will force Northville to Merge with another school district if they don't approve the Northville, Mayfield merger. The truth is the state has never forced school districts to merge ever. No state representative is going to vote to force some other schools to merger their by opening the flood gates to forcing their own districts to have to merge.

lizzie, sometimes when you plow a driveway the best place to push it is across the street. Notice I didn't say IN the street. As long as the driver cleans up his mess, what's the problem.

Too many people in G'ville failed at MYOB

Druggy: I believe that in NYS it is illegal to plow the snow to the other side of the street. It may be the best place for the person plowing his own driveway, but its the worst place for the person across the street who will that snow plowed into the end of his driveway when the city plow comes along.

Hill, blocking the driveway across the street is NOT what I had in mind. Everybody needs to relax, this won't be an issue in a few months. It's just part of living in "snow country"

"Everybody needs to relax, this won't be an issue in a few months." That’s a good one. You must be in a study group for valium this month. Merry Christmas!

Ok, I'll say it: Jeers to A&E and their pet butt-ranger at GLAAD. These pervs are always attacking Christians but now have the audacity and poor manners to go after Christians at Christmas time. (That's just a nice way of calling them disgusting bigots). A&E can hire and fire as they wish but when they mentioned in their press release that they support GLAAD and are acting on that support they broke the Labor Laws. But hey, go ahead, support the pervs and continue to reap the harvest they sow. Everybody else have a Merry Christmas.

MrBob: please explain what labor laws were broken by A&E. And please tell me where Jesus condemns gays. Book, chapter, verse, please. Thank you.

Merry Christmas to you too Hill. This has been an issue for as long as I can remember. When I lived in the area I had a plow route and always cleaned up my mess, but that was at least 55 years ago and people were not as edgy as they are today. From what I hear on the scanner lots of the citizens of G'ville have the PD on speed dial complaining if the neighbor picks his nose and flings the bugger in the street.

No disrespect adkkev but I don't play that game and throw out garbage just to stir up controversy. You can easily look up that information yourself and refute or agree with the information, same as I did.

Don't get me wrong adkkev, I love a good challenge and am always up for a good honest debate so don't worry about mine and just do YOUR homework first.

Leviticus 20:13

If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

As far as Duck Dynasty goes... I believe that if you like something you watch, if you disapprove you do not. Here in the USA we should be allowed the choice. As for me, I have never seen the show. And I do not personally care what any of them says. I already chose not to watch without the controversy. Why is what Phil Robertson so important to you that it is worth this type of effort. Do you see him as a representative of yourself? Or why do you feel you need his permission to do as you please?

TOT, I don't watch the show either. A&E stepped on Phil's First Amendment right to free speech because what he said offended the "gay community" BOO HOO and now we have GLADD and the pc police adding him to the Paula Dean list of offenders. I really don't think that a large number of people had a problem with the LB&RXQ crap until they started the in your face, "We demand......", and the media playing into their hand on the marriage issue.

Today you are not allowed to say that being "gay" is wrong, you have to be accepting -- Sally has two daddys, isn't that wonderful ?? NO

Could someone at the Leader Herald explain to me why the chose the title they did for Mr Parkers letter to the editor in the Sunday Leader. "Merger best option for taxpayers, kids" If you read the article you will realize Mr Parker does not offer an opinion as how someone should vote on the Merger. His argument is with the way Albany actually spends money on education. Two questions come to mind just why is the Leader Herald pushing so hard to get this merger approved and just how Yellow is you journalism?

MrBob: those questions weren't any sort of game. I made two simple requests. And I did my homework. I thought perhaps I had missed something in my research.

ToT: your Bible quote is from the Old Testament .. and if you are using that to support the anti-gay argument, then I'm supposing that you support slavery, polygamy, concubines, and a few other things that are in that section of the Old Testament. And yes, MrBob, I did my homework.

adkev, so tell me where in any bible does it say that Adam and Adam make a great couple???? And where does it say that I have to be accepting, and that "gay" marriage is a good thing ??? What anybody does behind closed doors is not my business, but I'm getting a little (OK a LOT) tired of the "we're here, we're *****, and we're in your face" attitude so prevalent today.

I personally am not taking a position on the issue adkkev, I see you are very astute as to where it came from as I posted that in the post. I also see that you have lumped me in true liberal fashion as a supporter slavery, polygamy, concubines, and a few other things that are in that section of the Old Testament... ummm NOPE those things are supported by progressive thinkers maybe but not me!

Adkkev, here's what you missed while you were chasing red herrings around in the Bible and elsewhere in a futile attempt at equivocation; EEOC Law of 1972. That's it, plain and simple. No Constitutional 'right's' were infringed upon here, just Employment Laws. A&E discriminated against an employee on religious grounds, they stupidly said it themselves in their press release, read the WHOLE thing. THAT is what's illegal. What is not illegal is A&E choosing to run with the perverts while Phil and his family and a whole lot of us kneel with God and avoid A&E.

Drugs, and anyone else for that matter, ask yourself why the pervs 'care' so much about what goes on in the Hetro bedroom while flaunting their own perversions. Could it be they desire to destroy our Moral Compass?? They are not normal and insist they be accepted as such. They subscribe to the progressive meme that insists 'up is down', 'good is bad', 'right is left', freedom is slavery' and (the best one of all) 'ignorance is strength'. Now, let's see if the 2% or so of pervs in America can sustain A&E or if A&E goes the opposite of Chic-fil-a.

I'd be willing to bet that those of you defending Duck Dynasty's first amendment rights were the same people condemning the Dixie chicks when they excercized their 1st amendment rights.

And bobbi, do you really believe that homosexuality is a choice?

It's 2013, almost 2014, and people are still calling gay people "pervs"? Sometimes I dispair of our species. By the way, no animal species has been found in which homosexual has not been shown to exist so watch out for those perverted yaks and those ***** sea bass.
