Fireman
Careful what you say about Cutro he could be Barlolws father in law if the latex doesn't hold

With Barlow having "Little Man Syndrome" and slapping her around, she would be wise to dump the "little man" for someone she will not have a life time of abuse from. I'm surprised that this fireman allowed something like what was reported to have happened at the sting, to go unpunished, but then, the "Little Man" is his boss.

board
I can't understand why rules are made. When the rule is you must have 100 signatures to get on the ballot then that is what you need. If you can get written in then anyone in the city can get written in, then why do the others have to go get the signatures? the rule is 100 signatures....., and 99 is not 100. I guess she did not do her homework, just like she did not do her homework for the last 6 years. As far as I know she did absolutely nothing for the Oswego school district. My opinion is why elect the same people that have done nothing . Put different people on that want to do the job, and have ideas how to help the district. Miss Kathy as usual had someone else do her work, as usual, and it came back in her face. The rule is 100 people and not 99......she can not win with write in's. if so every person in the city of Oswego can write their name in, and for what? no signatures which is the ticket to the ballot.....

Schoolboard Cuting But Asking 2.5% Increase !
So next year is another 5 to 6 mil. cut in the Schoolboard budget, but they are asking for taxpayers to kick out monies for this year! What is the next part of this game next year? Another money grab? How is this game being played out? Once again, people being voted in ( schoolboard ) with NO ability to see more than one year at a time .
Maybe the Schoolboard should go to Fulton, NY and ask them how they do it with less money! Sorry kids, sounds like the music and language dept. are next and then the year after that, no year book and the price of lunches will be $ 5.00 per day! Maybe the Schooboard should ask Centro for a price to move the students around!
Sorry Mr. H, all your jumping up and down is not going to save this one. Greed is coming right back and going to bite us right is the a$$, it will hurt the most for the ones who take the most!

dog complaint
Don’t blame the dog because of the stupid owner. Dogs bark for a reason; fear, being left alone, pain, hunger etc. Dogs are pack animals and should be with their owners, not left outside all night (and last night was raining). If you can’t find room in your house or your heart for a dog who gives you unconditional love you don’t deserve one. The more people I meet, the more I love my dog.

Oath of Office - Republicans circumvent the Law again
The five dumb Republican County Legislators that failed to file their Oath of Office Cards with the County Clerk are not going to have to run for office again this year, even though, that is what the law requires. Mr. Potter, Mr. Hayes, Mr. Doyle, Mr. Karasek and Mrs. Kastler, failed to file Oath Cards, were re-appointed to their seats for the balance of 2016, and by law were required to re-run for their seats in 2017.
Now there is a move to have the Legislature pass a resolution to be sent to Senator Ritchie, and Assemblymen Barclay and Oaks, to have the law changed in Albany, for one year, for Oswego County , for these five dopes, so they will not have to run this year, circumventing the law.
It seems typical of the Oswego County Republicans, that breaking the laws whenever they please is common place. This is right in your face corruption being done by Ritchie, Barclay and Oaks with no regard for the law.
I am sure, if it were five Democrats that were stupid enough to not send in their Oath Cards they would be running again, or better yet, the Republicans would not have re-appointed them and put five more of their corrupt friends on the county legislature.
We wonder why we are called the most corrupt county in the state, wonder no more!

Britt Hill
The people on Britt Hill pay a lot in taxes, so they should get all the city has to offer, just one question, why was the developer getting away with improper site elevations and drainage? Does this city have a engineering dept. or a pay check collection dept. ?

Don't spend any time on the latter.”

Store on Bridge
You are absolutely right. I don't know how I confused the McKays with Driscoll. Went to that shoe store many times. I remember Driscoll too. Both the same era.

                                                                                                                                            April 30/16



I remember going in there with my mother just once. I seem to remember that the buiding was leaning or the floor was sinking at the time. The Middle Wall (in the river) as it was called, was actually wider at the spot where the store was. For years later you could look down from the bridge and see the old boiler still laying in the water on the east side of the wall. Somewhere I have a good picture of it taken from the foot of Market Street. Maybe someday I will find it.

Kathy Allen ex board of ed president screws the pooch !
Kathy Allen can't figure out the proper number of signatures plus a few extra for her petitions ? And "We the Taxpayers" trust her as BOE President ? Seriously ?

Oh but she is going to have an attorney look into appealing her screw up.

Rules are put into place for a reason Kathy ! So that everyone has a fair playing field.

The Oswego city School District has hundreds of "policies" that they ignore all the time. So why should Kathy's screw up not get swept under the rug too ?

Three other BOE members Decastro, Trippy, and Spermeno sympathize with Kathy's screw up and each agree that "the voters should return the screw up to the Board via a write-in campaign".

Hey Kathy, make this the first time you actually follow the rules as they are written and walk away, you are DISQUALIFIED ! Do you comprehend ??

Do it for the kids !

Don't forget Cutro
Don't forget that coke head Cutro how many times did the city taxpayers pay to try to dry up his nose habit? So like he was not able to do the job. Must be a careless bunch that would want that kinda guy as their backup in a fire. Shows others must have been and still are just as bad.

New restaurant in town
Heard a little rumor about a new Italian place opening up around midtown plaza... Gonna be called "papa neels". But here's the kicker, the dude owning it isn't even Italian. He's Hindu. Probably just another mafia coverup in our fair little city. Thanks , billy Barlow.

Ray Abbott
This is the guy the OFD sends to come into your home and install free smoke detectors. Don't let him in, most likely after he leaves you could be missing valuables. It appears the OFD has no moral compass. He should not keep his position in the OFD. Looks like being a fireman comes with a license to steal. Once again the OFD thumbs it's nose at the Oz tax payers.

Interesting observation
Oakes gives the criminals involved in politics in Oswego County a slap on the wrist so Rita Tickle help said criminals keep their job?

This includes people like McGrath that caused a death from torching his building?
This includes Smegelsky thief?
What about Martin for drugs?
Any connection to the 1994 disapperance?

Water Thieves
Heard that little Tommy Kells hooked himself up to the water line years ago and has been enjoying free water, however, you and I must pay for ours. The powers that be in Scriba should check out little Tommy Kells and bag themselves another thief.

Store
I believe the store in the middle of the river was a shoe store run by the McKay sisters. Driscoll's was a hat shop on either West 3rd or 4th off Bridge St.

OFD Hero in the news again!

"On 4/26/16 at 7:55 p.m., Raymond T. Abbott, 36, of Mexico, NY was arrested for 5 counts of Theft of Services, following the investigation into incidents in the Town of Scriba where he allegedly connected to water lines from Scriba Water without obtaining authorization and without paying for the services. Mr. Abbott is scheduled to appear in Town of New Haven Court on 5/19/16."

Is this the same Ray Abbot that stole a bunch of equipment from the New Haven FD and sold it online. It he the same Oswego Fireman who had his EMT certification suspended for refusing to take a critically ill patient to the hospital.

Lets see if he makes a deal with Rita Tickle and the District Attorney to plead to disorderly conduct and keep his job.


Shoe Store in Middle of Bridge
I remember the ladies who ran that store. I believe their name was Driscoll. They also sold hats. It's hard to imagine how that store was built up from that narrow island in the river.

The Man Behind The Curtain?
Has anyone else noticed the one common thread that's run through the past 9? (more or less) City administrations? The one constant face and fixture in city politics? The one person who knows every immoral,unethical,and illegal thing done by every mayor and every city employee since Lazarek? was in office?(or was it that asshole after Lazarek?)
I'll give you a clue,it's not a man,it's a woman.She's still employed by the city.One of the highest paid city employees to boot.She's been running this city for 30 years.Don't be fooled Mayor Barlow she doesn't work for you,You work for her!
Her knowledge of all of Oz's criminal enterprises (past and present) is the true power in Oswego politics.She manipulates and controls people without them even being aware of all the fixes she's built into her own job security. Don't ever wonder why she's still employed. She owns the keys to the dungeon.If she knows your business (and she does) whether it's arson murder or kiddie porn.She owns your ass!
If you recall around the time the City was being investigated by the DEC her husband (an ex-NY State Police BCI detective) was seen "working" at city hall going through old city records (hard copies and computer traces).Why? was he looking for evidence to destroy? He'd certainly be the "go-to" expert to find incriminating documents wouldn't he?

The Future of the Nuclear Industry in Oswego
I overheard a conversation at a local watering hole between a bartender and a patron regarding the future of the local atomic power industry. It appeared that the patron was a security guard at Fitzpatrick who was told by his boss in Rochester to be prepared for the next round of plant closures.He was told that Unit 1 is scheduled for permanent shut down in 2022

Re: Barlow Facts
A couple of months ago local police agency arrested a man in New Haven on a warrant after a disturbance call at Barlow residence on 104 B just past Stick's bar.
The man must have been outside of the residence when taken into custody because the po po missed or ignored the commercial pot growing operation inside the home that has been ongoing for quite some time for sale on the streets for income.
Apparently they all must have had stuffed up noses and missed the smell. Check the power bills for that property and go back.

Bouncers
Bouncers at bars have NO authority to even touch a person by law, they can be personally sued. They are supposed to call police to remove the person at the owners or managers request, all they can do is ask the person to leave the premises. The owner or manager can sign a complaint and have the person arrested if they refuse to leave upon request for tresspass. All the bouncers are is john q like you and I. Remember that next time you see any physical behavior. Get some pictures !

“We are in the same tent as the clowns and the freaks-that's show business.”
Edward R. Murrow

 



Bringing Back the "Good Old Days"
Does this cannon look familiar to anyone? We used to have 2 of them. It's time for the city employees who dismantled it and shipped it out to come forward and tell the true story. The story of who authorized the illegal "sale" of a piece of local history that belonged to the taxpayers of Oswego and who profited personally from it's removal from the city?? Who pocketed the $50,000.00? Was it split up between all involved? I believe it went bye-bye during the Hamill administration?
It reminds me of the "tree gang" scam that was at it's peak during the Cahill administration. I know who profited from the illegal sale of hardwood worth tens of thousands of dollars sold on a monthly basis to out of state lumber mills. One of them was the "tree gang" boss Andy Hillman who paid $38,000.00 cash for a top of the line pick up truck which at today's prices would cost you $70,000.00. Billy Ruggio knows all about it, Jean Byrne knows all about it. Everyone employed by city hall at the time knows all about it! There are no official city records of the sale of ANY hardwood!

City Hall never had a fence around it until the 1980's. The question isn't whether or not we needed a fence but the illegal way in which it was removed. I personally believe that the corruption of our current administration will "Trump" (get it?) any that have come before. The misdeeds of the past will pale in comparison to what's coming down the pike with the Barlow posse.
Animal control has always been a problem in Oswego. If the Barlow administration wanted to generate some honest revenue for the city they should enforce existing dog licensing laws. Fine dog owners for not licensing, spaying, neutering, vaccinating like they do in real cities. There are hundreds of unlicensed pit bulls and other useless breeds terrorizing neighborhoods. Rabies, Parvo, dog attacks, lawsuits? The OFD could easily do a dog survey, Hell, they don't have anything else to do besides overeating and falsifying fire inspection reports for the 13 slumlords (the 1% who own this town) of which one is a fireman himself!! Do you remember the Latino Pit Bull "breeder" who fed his dogs live kittens after he beat the dog? Why kittens? because adult cats may injure the dogs eyes making them useless as fighters. It's a standard dog fight training technique among illegals and ethnic ghetto dwellers. He was never arrested he just moved away with no accountability for his actions and with no concern from animal control or the OPD.

What a Great Reputation Oswego Has....Drunken Kid Mayor in Fist Fight at local Watering Hole
Seems the City of Oswego just can not get away from electing Low Life Scum.
This is just the start of the 2nd decline of the city of Oswego. The first was with the Gosek Administration and now we have the Barlow Carnie Clan in office.
What a legacy; having two administrations of the same low life caliber. Now we have a drunken mayor, out fighting like some gutter snip, and when he was 22 he was doing a 16 year old high school girl, sure looks he wants emulate his hero Kockakoli, just like when he was doing his underage baby sitter that caused his split with his wife. Just like before, they are Tax and Spend, giving all their cronies jobs and pay raises. They think they can do as they please, just look at the mess they made around city hall, and now a survey shows that 69% of the people want it put back in its original shape.
Just think, we have 3 more years of these low life people in City Hall, that includes all their scumbag appointments as well. The Syracuse paper will have a ball with this, and the Pla-Times will bury it.

greed
Why is there a oswego city school dist. van driving around on a Sunday ( 4-24-16 )? Why are people more concerned about a fence or a cell tower ? If the tower was in consideration when the building was being rebuilt, where was the city engineering dept. ? How come that dept. get a glove and got into the game for involved for future add ons ? Or is this something that they just do not understand, after all, to receive a structure on a roof, the building would have had to receive arch. revamp for future roof add ons, which, again, the taxpayers were misrepresented! What is the real Job of the city engineering dept. any way ?

Saturday Night Fights

Billy The Brawler Barlow vs Unknown

The youngest mayor in New York State decided to hit some of the local watering holes Saturday night. By the time he got to the second or third watering hole he was half in the bag and hitting on some guys girlfriend. In the fracus that followed Oswegos mayor proved he couldnt handle his alcohol, his women or his fists.

Prediction - school budget will be defeated due to cuts in sports; it will be brought back with a higher tax increase and the higher tax will pass.
Don’t be fooled thinking it’s for the kids. There is still a tremendous amount of fat in that budget.

Real Facts about the City Hall Fence
The results of the survey are very impressive. It is evident that almost 300 people have responded and 70 % of them want the fence repaired and replaced. I know that the mayor and kockakoli will cry that this was not significant, but it statically shows that overwhelmingly the people want that historically significant fence repaired and replaced.
Lets examine the facts: The Mayor took the fence down because his secretary wanted it down and it was common knowledge that she bugged the last two mayors to remove it. The Mayor used the old excuse that it was dangerous and a safety hazard and was going to fall on some child and hurt them. Now remember, it took a front loader with chains, a hacksaw, and three men to get it down. (lie number 1)
The Mayor said it would take $50,000 to repair and reinstall the fence, yet there was no R.F.P. (request for proposals) so where did that wild ass guess come from? Must be from the mayor's mouth piece Kockakoli. The mayor stated that there was no expense to take it down, remove the foundation, and put in top soil and seed the entire lawn around City Hall. If that is the case there would be no expense to re-install the repaired fence. Repairs to the fence could be done by the same people that voluntarily welded the Schooner down on Lake Street, and I am sure that BOCS, or other area welders would be glad to volunteer their services for this historical cause. ( Lie 2 )
Now there is a complaint filed that the Mayor violated the Oswego Charter, and what I read on line, he absolutely did. That complaint was filed with the Ethics Board, which is made up of Barlow's hand picked cronies, and this board will never find him guilty of an ethics charge. Everything will be swept under the rug and it is doubtful any report will ever be issued by them. ( lie 3)
It was interesting that Kakakoli stated that this ethics board was formed, not for the public to use, just the cronies in City Hall. Seems Kakakoli wants to run the city like he runs Scriba. Wonder when the next law suit against him will surface? Did he ever marry that 16 year old baby sitter he was having an affair with, when he was married to his original wife? Talk about ethics....he should look up the meaning of the word ethics in the dictionary.
As you can tell, the fence will never be returned to it's proper location, as this council is too weak to stand up for what is right. The people have spoken through this survey and there is no question what they want. Too bad we do not have a council that is there to represent the people.
That fence will lay around for a few years, after this issue has died down, will be repaired, and eventually will be installed on Kakakoli's property. Now, remember how this administration and council ignored your wishes this coming year when the council runs for re-election and in a few years when this arrogant little inexperienced kid runs for any position again. We deserve a lot better than what we got.

This is Kind of a New Concept
Instead of throwing money at a problem, why not try and find out the problem ! If you have a engine loosing oil, do you keep on adding oil, or do you try to find out WHY it is loosing oil!

I always thought that a person moves to a city, town, etc.. is because that there is employment, not because of the school dist. ( of course if you are on public asst., what do you care, the taxpayers are paying the way ! ) How much more does the taxpayers have to keep paying for the fat and greed! It is not the job of the school board to provide jobs, it is one of the jobs to make sure that the taxpayer’s money ( new idea ) is spent correctly, not asking fellow taxpayers, young and retired to kick out more money! Check out the ed. Col. on todays pall-times, this person wants all of you to kick in more money, but he does not know the problem, but I do not know what he is going to say next year , when they have to cut $ 5 mil.

Greed

  So, if the OFD has to  do a inspection  with in there  shift, it is a fee. If school  teachers, go to the out side ,and call them selves coaches, collecting monies to coach ,even if , they had never ever played the game or not, they get paid monies.  Schoolboard members bad at math, taxes and realestate transactions.

 

People in this city  want someone else to do the work because when they pay taxes, they think that this is what THEY deserve with no thought of other tax paying people! And that thought process shows on voting turn out last year and putting up a sixth grader! I feel sorry for that young man, but the parents should feel ashamed. The smarter they are, the dumber they are! 

 

The city hall fence, the person was right, it is called maintaince! This city is all about what are YOU going to do FOR ME ! This has always been a greedy town and  people hide behind there  politics protection,all about the kids and there wife’s skirt, without knowing what backbone, taxpayer, simple accounting and have the ability to drive past a bank or a fast food drive-in! And stop using kids  as pawns for the backbone that adults lack !

City Hall
To everybody that's up in arms over City Hall and the Fence coming down, let's examine the facts, yes the building was renovated back in 1979-1980, but what has been done to the building and grounds since then, pretty much nothing. Reasonable government would have maintained the structure and keep up on issues that have plagued the building for years. Call it what you what but ever administration since then has ignored the issues whether being Democratic or Republican, but lets persecute the new administration for trying to not make it a embarrassment any more. Many of the former councilors could have prevented the decay of the structure, roof leaks, wall failures, flooring issues and many more, so to call out and condemn the current administration is a mockery at best. I'm sure part of the original grant funding for the renovated City Hall was to maintain it, not let it decay as it has, anybody that knows anything about building construction knows it's all about maintaining, thank you Mayor, Dpw chief for having the foresight for trying to correct 36 years of neglect.

By the charter city property is regulated by the council not the mayor DPW or anyone else. This is the second time Barlow has violated the charter and Cockarolli keeps making up lies to cover up for him. That is one violation every fifty days and there are over 1,300 days to go.

School Budget
I am sorry, I do not mean to be mean, but what is the script going to be for next years school budget because the gap has to get closed another $ 5 million ! Taxes are going to be raised 2.5 % for 2016. What is the raise going to be next year ? Face it people, monies from the nuke plants (taxes ) and thank your voted reps. on there great tax deal !


Also, why not ask your fellow board of education why, at the high school, there is a principal, asst. principal, vice p-rincipal and two more vice principals! Also ask why each one has there own secretary? Talk about greed


This law seems like a good one, but why is it, any business owner pay the city extra money (fee), for doing more work and helping police do a job they are suppose to do anyway. What the f*** kinda of thinking is going on here. Just pissing off businesses, that may just get fed up and close or leave. Just f***ing stupid! Read some of the comments, these people are exactly right! Only in Oz.

April 21, 2016 at 9:34 am
I am confused about the explanation given about having Pawn Brokers pay for a permit, let alone $250. per year for the Police to investigate charges of stolen property. Is that not what the Police already do. This “Law ” is a great thing but it sound like the City is just trying to get more money from small business owners for which seems like something that will take more extra work for the Business Owner not the City. I am not a business owner but I do care about what businesses are still left here is Oswego.

The $250 seems to be a money grab. It seems any extra work would be done by the store owner. It would actually save the police time by giving them good leads.
Scrap the $250.

as a small business owner…we already go out of our way to keep good records when buying items to help the police….we also are aware the selling problem and we are very careful who we buy from …which i am very picky what i buy …as for $250 fee ..i think its b.s…i pay my taxes like everybody else to cover the the police officers paycheck ..so i should double pay for them to do the job they should be doing in the first place

City Fees
Here's an idea. Put a fee of $250 on any travel trailer using electrical and sewer system during each farmers market. That means that Barlow's Concession would have to put up a $250 fee to use the cities power and sewer. Seems fair.

selling to non- profits
I know, but the point I was trying to make was, the board of education wants to sell riley school to the Syracuse diocese, which can mean, if the property is exempt, no money for Oswego county. It is when the property is inactive, is when it goes on the tax rolls. In any case, why would the board of education even THINK about selling to a non- profit, tax exempt ( you know, city, county, schoolboard, does not receive any monies), which again, the voting taxpayers, pay again!

Also keep in mind that the school board had allowed” hasley” to do his thing , and the board kissed his a$$ and also never made him stand by the agreement that he signed to move to Oswego, ny. NO GUTS !
And please tell me why every time that there is a change in personal or board members, the offices gets a new remodel ? Ask these brains why the rooms get the make over, but the kids are put up as pawns and someone else is made to look like the bad guy ?

City Hall Historical Fence...What a loss to this community
The wrought iron fence that was around City Hall is a great loss to the community and it is a shame that it was illegally removed by an uncaring mayor and an unqualified DPW Commissioner that bought his job for a $5,000 donation to the mayors campaign. The comments made by the Kid Mayor and the slim ball city attorney were totally incorrect. That fence was installed with a Historical Preservation funds and was to be a close duplicate to the original fence that was originally there. To remove it without the consent of the council or any mention to the public is becoming the stand for this administration. The council better wake up and remember, the kid mayor, his slimy city attorney and DPW dope Kells are not in charge.
If you would like to see this fence repaired, which was only a few short sections that would need to be welded and painted, which would be minimum expense as compared to what they spent tearing it out. You need to call your alderman or City Hall and register a complaint. Request that it be re-install that historical fence! If you do not do this, this fence will be lost for ever or installed up at the city attorney's house at 5 Galloway Court. He would like to put that around his $275,000 house.
Please call before we lose another part of Oswego history for ever.

City Hall fence
The fence at city hall was the taxpayers fence. What you will see now that it is gone, is kids and maybe even adults sitting near or on the building during the farmers market. The grass will be tore up. People will be cutting the corner walking on the grass, making a path of dirt and mud when it rains, and you might end up with graffiti on the building. The fence was nostalgic. Is someone wanting the cannon, because I think you'll see kids all over it during the market, and that will be a reason to get rid of it. It will be a hazard! Only in Oz.

Selling to Non-Profit

Just because you are a Not-for-Profit entity does not automatically exempt that entity from city, county, or school taxes. Only if the buyer is of a certain status, (i.e., hospital or another educational facility) do the courts even consider exempting an entity from the aforementioned taxes. It is not an easy process and may take years to achieve, all in which the taxes must be paid during that time. SUNY Oswego and the Hospital are the most notable entities granted this status. The term Non-Profit is no longer used  because it is misleading maintaining that the business doesn’t make any money, however many “Non-Profits” due, henceforth the Not-for-Profit moniker. – I.

Your neighbors in Scriba would like to thank you for the noise pollution coming from your plant on the westerly side that sounds like a non stop freight train with a medium pitched whine coming from the plant. It.s really nice when you have to sleep with our windows closed at night, let alone listening to it all day long.

Do you think you could look into it and do something about it soon. Sounds like some kind of large motor or something, inside or outside ? Don't know but it is very annoying and a noise that is new within the past couple of years and kind of loud.

Appreciate you looking into it for some resolution.

City Hall fence, DPW, and Ethics Committee

The DPW is doing a bang up job! A double drum asphalt roller was all over the city, going to the city garage I'm guessing. This is the type of machine that will tear up and crack the roads! This machine should never be aloud to travel on city streets. This machine should be trucked to its destination. Many more cracks will be showing on city streets. When going over manholes, the bricks and morter will have been cracked, loosened, and falling apart. Way to go! The fence at city hall should have never been taken down without the approval of the state, and/or common council! That fence was not a hazard, it's iron!!! A little concrete in its footer (holder) is all that would have been needed. It'll end up in someone's yard. Let's pay attention to this one. I'll bet the fence is all bent up now. And, who is Barlow to make any decisions like that? The ethics committee? Seriously? I wonder what they will do? Of course, since Barlow chose this committee, what do you think will happen? They will say the same exact thing, it was a hazard. Another bullshit council move in allowing this committee. But, who does Barlow think he is, making any decision like this? It is not his call! It's only going to get worse people. Call the state!

About the fence

Dick A is a tool are you blind thinking the rustic fence looks better around city hall. It's an eye sore and the people that walk by city hall that arnt collecting a check would agree. How often do your drive by and notice the fence on west first.

Neither the Federal nor the State governments

have ever mandated that the City of Oswego

raise its water or sewer rates.

Anyone who says they did is a F**KING LIAR!!!!!!

Oswego Firefighter Sentenced

Last night in Minetto Town Court Oswego firefighter and former Minetto fire chief Joe Smegelsky Jr. received the maximum sentence of $1000 and two years probation despite arguments from the District Attorney Greg Oaks and defense lawyer Timothy Kirwan. They had hoped for a lesser sentence but based on information in Smegelsky's pre sentencing report the maximum punishment was handed down.

 

An audit by the State Comptrollers office found that Smegelsky had taken funds and used a department credit card to purchase a handgun, automotive parts and assorted items. He also created a fictitious company which sold fire equipment from undisclosed sources to the Minetto Department. District Attorney Oaks repeatedly argued for special treatment because Smegelsky had paid back slightly less than half of what the Comptrollers office found. However the fact remains he paid nothing back until he was caught.

OSWEGO’S LILLY WHITE RACISIST FIREDEPARTMENT


One week ago we celebrated Martin Luther King Day. I am sure members of the Ozwego Fire Department seized the opportunity to rack up some double overtime but that is about the only use they have for non-whites.

Since its inception in 1876 the Oswego Fire Department has been as white as the driven snow, with respect to the color of its members that is. In its 139 year history there has never been an Asian, Black or Hispanic member. If you think this somehow reflects the population then you better take off your blinders. Oswego’s elected officials and Personnel Department have long allowed department members to live as far away as Montour Falls, Watertown, and Groton. There is no way you can cast a net that far and say, that population is reflected by our department.


In the late 1980’s there was young Black man working for the local cable company who sometimes frequented the Fire House Tavern as did members of the OFD. The firefighters exam had been announced and he was asking some of the OFD members if they thought he had a chance of getting in. He received all kinds of encouragement while he was there but after he left I overheard two of the Heroes chuckling and say no way they were going to let him in the department. “We have Guinias and Polocks and that is as integrated as we are going to get.” I do not know if the man ever took the test but the fact is that department remains as segregated as the day it was formed. They are allowed to operate as their own little fiefdom picking and choosing their own white membership and no one has the balls to put a stop to it.

The next time our Senators and Congressmen come around for their photo ops with our Hero Department we should all point out to the national media how they are supporting a racist organization. Perhaps we should ask the NAACP how this has been overlooked by their organization for so long.

Today's Quote, July 2/14

 

“Thieves respect property. They merely wish the property to become their property that they may more perfectly respect it.”
G. K. Chesterton

 



Oswego's finest screwing the taxpayers once again spotted at Dicks Sporting Goods in Great Northern Mall on 6/22/14.....didn't know they sold food there....or were they perhaps getting a new set up clubs at our expense??? Would still like to see the tab for the turning stone "conference" they went to....a whole weekend at the turning stone??? meals, rooms, drinks, etc???? The worst part is it will never change. No matter who is mayor they will always be controlled by the f.d. and no one will run against our current council members. Oswego has become homeowners to few (I stand corrected good homeowners) and is a city full of renters.
                                                                                                                    July 2/14


That was probably just Smegelsky picking up some guns. They should be checking the video at Dicks to see who was with him. That hero should be arrested too.

Minetto Chief
People like that are paranpiod about someone else stealing what they just stole so naturally he would need to get a gun to protect all his or should I say our stuff.

Ambulance Numbers

Yes, they are not as correct as they should be as I left off the 2 additional firemen that go out on Ambulance #2 and many of the other expenses that can be attributed to the ambulance service . In reality here is a $300,000 loss each year without he expense of a new ambulance. The point is, we will never make a profit on this service; have a fully qualified ambulance located in Oswego (Menter) that can handle all emergencies; could cut 15 men from the department with all their benefits and return $2,000,000 to the taxpayers; while cutting the long term obligation of retirement and the padding of such for years to come.
Unfortunately, the obtuse Mayor, Council, and most of all ,Fire Chief, have another agenda and it is not in the best interest of he taxpayers. McCrobie probably was, at one time, a good fireman, but as a chief and leader lacks in total credibility. The way overtime is handed out only shows that he is helping to bump up he retirement of the soon to retire firemen by thousands of taxpayers dollars. There is a belief that hey will all get their turn is the OT merry-go-round, but the fact is, the tier 6 firemen will never see that benefit. The new anti padding law passed and signed by he governor will not allow tier 6 employees to add any more than $15,000 to their retirement benefits, and they will now have to go for the last 5 years instead of 3. If I were a tier 6, I would tell the tier 5's to stick their $50.00 they pay for the OT and start taking their share of the OT, because it will all be ending when all the tier 5's retire.

Minetto Fire Chief
I asked a few weeks ago if anybody knew what was going on with Minetto's Fire Chief well here you go.
Stole $20,000 from the fire department. I'm going to guess he possibly stole more since he's being held with no bail. Coinsedently though he just bought a piece of property behind his own for $20,000. Don't believe me? Here's the property taxes. Coincident? You should take a drive by his property to check it out. Constantly cars & trucks are being 'stored' there and then disappear. Camper was there for a whole summer now that's gone. I even seen the Minetto's fire truck pull up to his vacant property hook on a utility trailer with all the fireman in it and take off. Now Minetto Fire Dept has plenty of property to store at their station. Why would they use his? I offend wondered why a property owner who only has 1/4 acre of grass need a 0 point turn lawn mower? Probably the fire departments.
