Re: Contaminants identified at former Breneman site in Oswego
While they're at it the DEC can drill a few holes in Tim Horton's parking lot. Lead,PCB's,and everything else found across the street is also buried under Tim Horton's parking lot!The City hid this fact from the developers of the Tim Horton site.Phony site inspection.Lawsuit? Tim Horton's is strapped for cash and they are also now in possession of this new information.Who brokered the Tim Horton's deal locally? Some alderman or state legislator? Billy Boy should have gone to law school,but they don't have online classes.LOL.

Thanx to the poster who months ago said they were going to the Federal gov't with their complaints regarding the property.It can only help if more people call Tim Horton's corporate office.In reality both sites may qualify as toxic dumps that will need to be contained like the site on East Seneca St!

Fire chief 's new ride
Boy , does he look sharp ! Want’s to look like police ? Want’s to have Fire/ Police control at scene? Which means , more money there way! Boy am I glad that the aldermen want to keep the Fire chief and the Police chief driving the same color vechiles, after all , they would not want to see who made more money or more important.

And nice job on the OFD trying to hide the trucks while getting food, or down by wrights landing at 10:00 A .M. doing what ? And why is “ Wades Dinner “ and “ Ritz Dinner “ being built or added on in combustible materials ?

Why is the OSWEGO, NY FIRE DEPT. involved in construction, instead of inspections of commercial properties, That may require, two points of egrees, sprinkler system, ansul system, inspecting 10 lb. or 20 lb fire extinguishers? You know, the things that you would think that a fire dept., ( that has a lot of people on payroll over $ 100.00 per hour )

So it is $100.00 per hour on duty, what is the pay rate when on standby? Of course, the mayor, Aldermen, Fire Runt and the other bobble heads will not give you the break down! And also, nice job of that co. that is doing the work at East first street. and bridge street, in our fine city, nice job of NOT PUTTING on REBAR CAPS on the FORM STAKES. Nice job of the city not knowing how to do there job or being current on all the construction codes and putting the city in a liability payout! Get a Glove and Get in the Game –Mayor and the aldermen and the City of Oswego’s Lawyer!!!!
Gulligan is clueless!

Dave Turner
Word has it that Dave Turner will be the next county administrator. Phil Church was handed his walking papers. Of course, this move to give Turner a job he isn't qualified for is led by Shane Broadwell.
With Fitzpatrick closing you'd think the legislators would want someone who knows how to use a calculator, or at least count on his fingers and toes.
Must be Broadwell doesn't know or care about Turner's stint with the city.

The Firemen on Syracuse Ave
As I was driving home from church on Sunday I noticed the OFD walking down Syracuse Ave going door to door looking for prostitutes.They were also handing out FREE smoke alarms to all all of their SLUMLORD FRIENDS AND COLLEAGUES. Nice savings for the slumlords,I bet they've never had to buy their own smoke alarms and believe me they need them.

How many infractions can you see in these pics? For starters, the person in the bucket has no harness on...OSHA!!! Two, the truck traveling while person is in bucket not harnessed...OSHA!!! Three, the idiot on the ground is allowing pedestrians to walk under boom...where is a lawyer? The guy stands there doing nothing, then allows pedestrians to walk under boom. Unbelievable! And, what you can't see in the pics, is that the person in the bucket actually dropped something. And, to add, the ground crew never picked it up! Un-f***ing believable!

Hooker on Syracuse Ave.
The hooker hangs out her upstairs window and directs her johns to the door. This is totally unacceptable. She is a welfare cheat and is fraudulently receiving HUD. DSS needs to investigate the home, she does business with children in the home. HUD needs to look into this situation, she is not reporting her income. Along with her johns, she is also screwing the taxpayers. OPD needs to arrest her and DSS needs to remove the children from this house of ill repute. The slum lord is well aware of the situation. Quality of life in Oz.

Also on the avenue we have the HUD hotel. It is supposed to be a mother and one daughter. The daughter is now employed. Her boyfriend has moved in and he is employed at Novelis. Another daughter and her child have moved in, this daughter is also employed. Why are we paying their rent? They probably get food stamps and Medicaid too. We don't mind helping the needy but not so much the greedy.

Today's Quote  November 19-20/2015


Hello everyone. Attached is the article and picture that was on the front page of our Palladium-Times today (lower right hand ). It is about my nephew Dean's disappearance in 1976. WHY they are doing this, after so much time has elapsed, I don't know. A policeman that he knows came to my nephew Paul's front door one day and asked if it was OK to do a follow-up article about it, and Paul said he had to check with his brothers and his dad. The brothers were OK with it, but their dad,John, hesitated to have it all brought to the forefront again, but he relented. I guess if there is even a tiny chance that this might bring some kind of closure, it is worth it. Meanwhile, if you know ANYTHING at all about Dean, or the time he went missing, please let us know.

It was 39 years ago today, when Dean said he was going to walk over to my other nephew Mark's apartment at that time (maybe a mile or a mile and a half?) and his mom, Barbara, told him to put on some gloves, as it was cold out, and he replied that he wasn't going to be gone that long and he walked out the door, never to be seen again. The search for him at that time, was intensive, with it being reported even in national publications. There was contact with world-wide, famous psychics (why I never believed in them, as they all said something different and they were all wrong) the FBI, state police, map dowsers, every avenue that was suggested was tried. The only way my sister and brother in-law got through it was the fact they had their other boys (two of them younger than Dean) to raise. But, every year at this time was heart-breaking for the whole family.

All I could think about when my sister Barbara lay dying, was the thought that maybe, finally, she would meet up with Dean again. It was, and continues to be, a huge mystery, so hopefully this article will spur someone who does know something, to come forward. I have heard that one gal in Oswego says she saw Dean that day, and I can't help but wonder why she didn't come forward with that when the family was begging for any information at all, back then.

When they quote his brother 'Riley" in the article, that would be my nephew Noel. He uses his middle name, Riley, (and my last name before I got married) professionally, like when he wrote his book, or when he was performing with his band. He will always be 'No-No" to me.

Keep your fingers crossed that this article and picture might shed some light on everything. Meanwhile say a few for Dean. Donna

hooker on Syracuse ave

The girl the older post refers to the hooker on syr ave...none other than Alysea H, welfare mom of now 4 kids living on the syatem and hooking out of her house,,,OPD knows and does nothing...maybe some on the side to leave her alone, either way this is just another example of our shitty system with no accountability for anything, In todays world it is all about the easy road, This is the same woman that lost a young child in the mohakw fire 2 or 3 years ago..... WHAT IS OPD GOING TO DO ABOUT THIS ????

Look at the closing of the nuke plant, it's not about a potential accident, it's solely about profit and how much more the public is going to get milked for, Lets see if the NYPA will do the right thing and step in to buy it back, though for a lot less that it was sold by them for, Entergy wants to get rid of it...OK....NYPA buys it for pennies on the dollar...otherwise Entergy has to clean it up and then maintain it forever

Lets get real Albany....hold corp. greed accountable for a change.

And while we are here...lets get to it.....

Justin at comm development....not trying to run the whole show, just wants to do a couple things that actually make fiscal sense

!) Get rid of the worthless HOLYER THAN THOU AMY BIRDSALL......that alone saves bad money being spent....Someone please tell me just what has she, and I do mean SHE, done to improve, speed-up or fix anything since she has been there.

2) Consolidate the , code enforcement, planning / development and comm development all under one dept....Is that bad...I think not.

This should have been done at the budget meetings and was about to be done, when 2 things happened, 1 the back door deal was ignored by ERIC V, it was a deal to consolidate and flipped the last minute, along with the ball less Gillen threatened to veto it if it passed a vote by the council, what you do not know is that she was given the job WITHOUT EVER TAKING THE CIVIL SERVICE EXAM....only after she had the job did she take the test....again miss givings behind closed doors at city hall....for what...she does nothing, she a snotty little bitch with her head in her ass, or someones to keep her job. However I see that coming to an end very soon


3) Wades employees fund raisers......Just how long are you going to milk this community.....You should be collecting unemployment, plus the 3 go fund me accounts, and a fund raiser at te woodchuck.....If you collecting unemployment, and Cheap Ass Tony is so good to you all then why so many fund raisers....Give it a frigging break already.... and yes that the reality of it !

4) Is there anyone out there that can explain to me how wades is being rebuilt....did the zonning change for this parcel....if so when and by whom? We all know how it got there...Illeagelly at the start....no regular maint....fire....fundraisers....and for what...A ICON of oswego...i think not.....the place hasen't been and will not be what it once was.....unfortunatly there are few choices for breakfast in the shit hole town....lets see.....ritz diner.....jocko would turn in his grave if he saw what they have done to both the place...and the food....diner food at best...and the pricing is way out of line....then you have wades...bet the prices go up there as well...even though the insurance company is paying to rebuild....cheap ass tony will tell everyone he has to pay for it somehow

just when will someone open a place that provides good food at a minimal cost...profit is understandable....and a nessasary function of buisness...but 11.00 $ for breakfast at the ritz....2 eggs, bacon, hf, toasts and coffee...11 bucks...lets break it down

2 eggs... .40

3 slices bacon 1.13

potatoes .40

2 Slices toast .25

SHITY coffee .25...............................actual costs based on current selling prices in groc store

total cost 2.43......so lets ad 30% for market fluzuation

30 %....................72

grand total.........3.15 total cost........now at the current prices of the ritz....you are paying 3 times the actual cost of goods

the average margin of profit for large restaurant corps that were compaired run at about 160 to 200% profit margin

at the high of 200% that makes breakfast affordable and profitable....WIN / WIN right ?

Breakfast at 8 bucks plus tip.....sounds good to this writer......SO WAKE UP OSWEGO......your friends are getting fat on your wallet !

Oswego County jail inmate attempted escape, sawed through window bar, deputies say



Tim Hortons
It might be that the brains down in Albany might be the cause, since the think that min. wage should go to $ 15.00 per hour. Maybe there thinking might be that more young people will go out into the work force instead of using of using the SUNY system of finance, hence less financial burden on Albany, and more on the private sector!

“I'm just deeply disappointed that once again we may have to settle for the lesser of two evils.”
Howard Dean

re: Guns
In Germany guns are everywhere ammo isn't.People fire blanks (which are legal) into the air at holiday times(at least they did 10 years ago)The gov't here also makes it very difficult to find certain caliber ammo.Forget buying expensive assault rifles that soon you'll only be able to buy blanks for especially military calibers. Right Wing (Nazi) Militias urge their followers to stock up on .22 and 12 gauge ammo which are the 2 most available.A head shot from a .22 is always fatal and a 12 gauge slug will go through 2 car doors.Instead of buying that expensive big caliber semi-auto consider buying the .22 caliber version and don't forget the semi-auto shotgun as well.2 guns for the price of one and all the ammo you can hoard.

NY State Fair stings nab 18 alleged prostitutes and a sex trafficker
It is unfortunate that no cares enough to shut down the prostitute on Syracuse Ave. It's pretty bad that the tax payers support her, HUD, welfare, Medicaid, and food stamps, she then repays us by bringing unsavory characters into our neighborhood. Maybe Billy the Kid could take care of this quality of life issue.

There is Plenty of Time
Look, "Little Billy Barlow" isn't in office yet, and will not be until January 1st, 2016. I think we need to give him time to get his feet wet and understand that he has chewed off, with the help of the undesirable under belly of Oswego, more than he will ever be able to swallow.

Yes, he is inexperienced, lied and exaggerated his way into office, but lets not criticize him before he has had his first Common Council Meeting. After all, he says he has new fresh ideas that will save the city. I know, nobody knows what those new fresh ideas are, as he never explained what or how he was going to save the city.

We are pretty sure that he will have Cloonan or some other looser that has never held a job as his Executive Assistant, having the taxpayers pick up another $ 75,000 in pay not counting benefits. You have seen Little Billy sucking up to this new guy "Justin" in Community Development, who doesn't live in Oswego and was hired after they dumped in from his previous job. This Justin wants to have all the departments reporting to him, so maybe this will be your new assistant, you know, another looser.

So folks, there is plenty of time, four years to be exact, for Little Billy to be led down the rosy path by the slum lords, breaking laws, messing with under age girls which he has already done, and following the steps of our other pervert mayor by the name of John J Gosek. Heck, he has J.J. Gosek's son to help led him down the path, he must have learned something from his pervert father. It won't be long before the investigations start, the FBI and Attorney General will be called in, and who knows, maybe Little Billy can lend his underage girlfriend a city car and gas card to go back and forth to Albany where she is attending school, just like Cindi.

Yep, plenty of time, give him enough rope and he will go down just like the pervert mayor.

Teachers Choice
A little over a month ago our child brought home a notice from school with information about a field trip her class was going to be taking. It was stated that parents were encouraged to be in attendance and would be driving their own car to the location. They also wanted none of the child’s siblings brought along with the parents. The problem I encountered with this field trip was fairly complicated. My child wanted me to be in attendance which meant I lost time from work. For a couple of the Mom’s it meant they had to hire a babysitter for their other children, an expense they really could not afford. I will always support my child in school functions, but I felt this experience did not need all those parents in attendance. A couple of the kids did not have any family there for them and I felt bad for them. I hope the teachers involved will rethink how they handle field trips in the future and ask for volunteers parents to help out with supervision if needed.

It was stated that parents were encouraged to be in attendance and would be driving their own car to the location. They also wanted none of the child’s siblings brought along with the parents. The problem I encountered with this field trip was fairly complicated. My child wanted me to be in attendance which meant I lost time from work. For a couple of the Mom’s it meant they had to hire a babysitter for their other children, an expense they really could not afford. I will always support my child in school functions, but I felt this experience did not need all those parents in attendance. A couple of the kids did not have any family there for them and I felt bad for them. I hope the teachers involved will rethink how they handle field trips in the future and ask for volunteers parents to help out with supervision if needed.

OPD Officer "Shakes" the Clown
It's rumored that a high ranking OPD officer is the DUI that hit a telephone pole by St Luke apts knocking out the power last week.The question is, was he driving or was it the K-9? Is the dog OK? Sounds like another Malone's Garage or the telephone pole at Greene's Ale House.He should have called a Taxi they also like to drink and drug on duty.

I was told that the fire was at least the 3rd one the Andersons have had. Now I saw the fire department was investigating the fire but have not see any information about the results. They must have a very liberal insurance company.

Tom Kells will get what Cloonan dosent take, if he gets the DPW he needs to live in the city, Rest ashured he will pull a kathy MacPherson. or maybe the lakefront captain, what ever that is
Jim Bell Code enforcement. Will be a good YES man... No Degree but can swing a hammer, if he did enough work maybe his wife will get back into city hall w Ritas job
Lt. Zac from the PD, he didnt sit in on all those early morning meetings at the commons for nothing, Remember there still is a Dep. Chief job at the cop shop.

“No drug, not even alcohol, causes the fundamental ills of society.

The Donald and The William
Does anyone notice the similarities between Trump and Barlow? I mean besides their obvious lack of qualifications and experience? Have you ever read anything that Trump actually wrote himself? Me neither, all of his "books" were written by ghost writers.His "ideas" and speeches are scripted by the writers working for his TV production company.He speaks in fragments,has a poor vocabulary and can't spell.He's also totally ignorant of history, geography, religion AND politics.I'd like to see his grades from College! .His campaign is just another mindless "reality" show.Donald Trump the "Real Estate Mogul" is in actuality a super-slumlord,sound familiar? Trump is a gambler and a risk taker who's lost as much money in his career as he's made.Will this formula work for the Country with him as CEO? LET'S TALK FLIP-FLOPPING, Trump used to be a Democrat! and even after switching parties for financial opportunity,he continued to "hedge his bets" by donating to liberal causes and Democratic candidates that he smelled a profit from.Let's call him a "bi-partisan" opportunist.

Pall says that for the fire yesterday Minetto was called in. .... By the way did anyone else see the new suv they got? How many autos do they need? Time to get rid of the ofd regulars and go to volunteers."
Answer: some of the FD vehicle belong to guys who as Chiefs other places like my neighbor on West 5th St he is a paid city hero and a volunteer chief someplace else. 3 blocks away he should have been there first. My feeling is why pay them if they are willing to do this work other places for free? Must be they don't get enough fires at work.

Amy, what's her name, didn't win so we have this liberal crazy blaming everything from missing cannon to the rally at the fort, that wasn't at the fort, on Republicans like Bill Cahill, Billy Barlow and even John Katco - I'm sure he's a lover of the former Mafia Dan the implant. If you look at these posts they always blame Republicans. Well, if you are so in love with Democrats think about this. The idiot Democrat mayor in Syracuse endorsed Amy, what's her name, for mayor in Oswego. The idiot mayor want's to bring Sirian refugees to Syracuse. One of the terrorists killed in Paris had a Sirian passport and was a refugee. How about our Democrat Governor. He stated, in an interview with Charlie Rose, that it is not if terrorists will attack the U.S., but when and that New York will be the prime target - his solution is to disarm the public from owning assault weapons and high capacity magazines. Real smart.

Westside Oswego Business, Apartment Damaged by Fire
I see the fire department did a good job with this fire on Nov 10th. I just have one question. , Menter Ambulance

If Oswego Fire Department has 3 Ambulances why was Menter Ambulance there at the fire instead of any of the Fire Departments own ambulances? Not sure the reason why they needed Menter in the first place. What no one at the fire needed a ride to Syracuse Hospitals.

Just wondering.

Fulton Police Blotter
It's nice to see that the City of Fulton has a functioning animal control office.When was the last time you read about anyone in Oswego getting a ticket for an unlicensed pit bull? Try never! I also see that they're still writing tickets for using electronic devices while driving.Heroin arrests etc.Rumor has it there's even employment available(at least more than here)

I was born in Oswego over 60 years ago and when I was younger Fulton was the butt of every joke but now after decades of political corruption Oz is the NEW Fulton-The City with a Future!(for a few Republican "businessmen" that is) Our Republican leaders (Katko etc) have the idea stuck up their ass that Oswego can ONLY be a tourist destination and their rally at the Fort proves it.The only problem with this idea is that State Parks nationwide are suffering loss of revenue and closures.The bigger attractions like Yellowstone and Yosemite have severely cut staff and access to the parks however the idea of making money from nothing still appeals to the Carnies that run this city.Do you think that Fort Ontario will be an alternative or more popular destination among those with money to waste? Not likely. Can't you just picture a "James E Strates Shows" style concession business owned by Barlow setting up his carnival tents at the Fort to sell $5 sno-cones made from Kool-Aid and FREE water? Any tourists who may come will NOT return after they get a load of our dog and pony show!

Who pays every time the fire board at the County Building "malfunctions" due to "ongoing repairs"?

Don Hill
I think honoring a police officer who was killed in the line of duty is a great idea. Don Hill was a good cop, but he was not killed in the line of duty. He was directing traffic on 104 for a store opening, and being paid by the store, and was not on duty.
If the cops want a roll model, maybe they should wait until an Oswego Police Officer is killed while on duty and actually protecting the community, not directing traffic while being paid by private company to direct traffic.

Oswego city school district - AGAIN
I have some questions for the administration at our school district, specifically our new superintendent Mr. Dean Goewey, and the entire board of ed.

Will you please look into the matter pertaining to one of our district school bus drivers, Billy Carney, when he recklessly damaged the bus garage at the district transportation center over a year ago. Mr Carney was driving dangerously and recklessly as he was attempting to park the district school bus in the bus garage. As Mr Carney was attempting to enter the garage, he hit the garage door opening causing thousands of dollars of damage to the Garage structure and to the school bus he was driving.
Click on the link below to show the amount of money ( $70,038.73 ) ( bottom of page 6 ) the district received from the insurance company to pay for repairs to the garage.
Also, I am assuming the district school bus must have been totaled in the reckless collision.
Why was Mr Billy Carney never suspended or fired for his reckless and dangerous actions while driving a district school bus ? This is not the first time Billy Carney has had an accident while driving a district school bus.
When Billy Carney first began driving school bus for our district ( 2010 or 2011 ) as a substitute driver, he was transporting students home from Riley elementary one afternoon. There was a light snowfall of maybe 3 to 5 inches covering the roads. Mr Billy Carney was traveling south on city line road at a speed NOT prudent for weather / road conditions ( driving too fast ) when he attempted to turn left onto Beech drive. Billy was not able to complete the turn because he was diving too fast ( recklessly / dangerously ). The district school bus slid into the ditch, and had to be towed from the scene. Remember, He had elementary children on the bus at this time. Why was he NOT reprimanded for this "accident" ! Why was he NOT arrested for endangering the welfare of a child ( multiple counts )?
To make this situation even worse was Billy was laughing about this situation in front of other drivers at the bus garage when he was brought back by Tom Gunn, the supervisor of transportation at the time. Tom Gunn and his "brother in law" Andy Germain ( dispatcher ) had a meeting with Billy and slapped his hands, told him to slow down.

Why have no disciplinary actions been taken against this driver for his continued Reckless / Dangerous actions ?

Also, Why is the Oswego city school district allowing a school bus driver ( Josie Alvarado ) with a DWI conviction, to continue to drive children ? Why is the district allowing the Head Mechanic (Geoffrey Marsh, a convicted drunk driver ) to operate district vehicles, including school buses ?
Why is the district puppet, supervisor of transportation, Johnnie Pierce ($80+ K per year) still employed with the district, when he doesn't know his ass from a hole on the wall ?
Why does the district continue to employ Peter Myles, Director of HR / Personnel, when the district fired him from his position as High school Principle ? Because someone felt sorry for him, so they found a position in the ED Center ?

The information about these incidents, accidents, and employee's referenced above is all public information. Look it up. I did.

These are some of the many reasons the taxpayers of this district are paying outrageous taxes, and taking it in the ass !

Some of you are aware, Mr. Pierce is an eyewitness for Lisa Peebles. That pointed to James Steen as kidnapping Allen. What Oakes doesn't know is Mr. PIERCE IS NOT THE ONLY EYE WITNESS THAT HAS DONE THAT. YOULL FIND OUT. TWO INDIVIDUALS HAVE, one was asked to point to someone in photos that looked familure. This witness is Oakes witness, he to, pointed at James Steen. Mr. Pierce is right on. Mr. Pierce you have more support than you know. Oakes should try showing his witnesses actual up to date photos and not teen photos as petrwoski has. Oakes should also allow all the witnesses lie detectors as requested before throwing at the wall, they are unreliable without proof. How many of Oakes witnesses will line up along with Lisa Peebles and allow a lie detector. None..Oakes should ask himself why Lisa Peebles will, his won't.

The budget for Oswego has already been approved, Fulton contemplating their budget at this time. If one was to read both articles posted, one would have to wonder wtf is going on? Oswego's budget is nearly twice the size of Fultons! Oswego has nuke plants, Fulton has machine shops. Also, if one looks at the Oswego budget, really looks, they will notice that HarborFest is used to hide all the tax increases. One should also notice the Community Development increase for administrative duties. How big is this? Yet, the city is delapitated, and you would think that this entity is running the city (into the ground, that is). Oswego still can't get a decent website up? All be it, that Fulton is not Oswego in terms of certain things, you got to wonder why their budget is substantially lower than that of Oz. And, as of last night, add another vehicle to the Oswego Fire Dept. . Was this in a budget? Unbelievable.

In case you do not remember this happened on a Friday afternoon back in June and it took hours for our pilot lights to be lite. I have inquired but the information is not available.

Question for Judge King
One can assume. Your comment that says, the reason Michael Bohrer things can not be put into evidence is because the kidnapping and presumed murder of Heidi Allen is unknown. The Sheriff suggest she was taken by the Thibodeau, hit with a shovel and buried on Gary's property. If your claiming her kidnapping and murder is unknown. Then how can you hold the defendant in prison? After OCSD, prosecuted him with Dodd, under these assumptions? If you do not know at this point what happened. I don't know how legally admitting that. You can hold an innocent man any longer. That's reasonable doubt. Which is upheld in N.Y. state court's. Gary should not be held any further. If you are suggesting it's unknown. It contradicts the entire trial on what OCSD, claim, that they suggest, took place. I know you will not respond to this. But your comments do not support the investigation on OCSD part.

John Sullivan Should just go back to Saratoga Springs and stay there
Is there anything more disgusting than a DINO (Democrat In Name Only)? Sullivan is not only a DINO, he is an ignorant lying DINO, and, I for one which he would change his party affiliation.
This A$$HOLE has a posting on Facebook with his picture with Barlow, congratulating him on his win and supporting him. What are you looking for John, some kind of a job back in Oswego where you can hide in the shadows with your significant other, what's his name?
Then you have the arrogance to put a stupid commentary in the Post-Standard that the NYPA should by back Fitzpatrick Nuke . Are you out of your F%*king mind? The NYPA got rid of that Nuke because it was loosing money in the first place and sold it to a private operator to get it back on the tax rolls hoping they could make it profitable. You now what the taxpayers of New York to shell our millions of tax dollars to buy a Nuke back that in not profitable and at the end of it's 20 year license agreement, take it off the tax rolls, and end up with the costs of decommissioning it after it runs for a few years, not making any money.
You also made a bunch of stupid statements about it being environmentally friendly, but did not mention the millions of spent fuel rods stored on the Fitzpatrick site, that we in Oswego County, are going to have to live with and guard for the next 250,000 to 500,000 years at the cost of billions of dollars not counting the extreme environment hazard they are now creating and will for the aforementioned period of time.
Your statement regarding the NYPA and their mission statement was correct.; they do "advocate for low-cost reliable power to invigorate the state's economy", they do not advocate the purchase of a 43 year old plant that is loosing money and will be a huge tax burden on the taxpayers of the State of New York!
Mr. Sullivan, the paper stated that you were the former chairman of the New York State Democrat Party which was a lie, you were co-chair, because the leaders of the party at that time did not want you, they only wanted to placate you to shut you up. You had no power what so ever, that was all given to your co-chair because "nobody trusted you". Regarding you being the former mayor of Oswego, you did not run for a second term because you were hated and you knew you could not win a second term. The city of Oswego is still suffering from your bad decisions, and you position on Fitzpatrick Nuke is just another example of how stupid you really are.
Do us all a favor, shut you mouth, and just go back to Saratoga Springs and stay there in the shadows and leave the people of Oswego alone, you have done enough damage to us already.

My name is Jewel Murtaugh Gilbert. It has just been brought to my attention that Tonya Priest is the individual who created and sent you this post ( Where is God? 8/15 ) to be published on your site/blog.
I mean no disrespect and actually admire your efforts in standing up for your beliefs and helping to expose corruption and other shady activities in Oswego County.
Tonya has made false allegations in this post against my family specifically my brother Richard Murtaugh. Tonya has been harassing and slandering my family for almost a year now since the Allen case has been brought back into the light. We have copied and paste everything for the past year and have been forwarding to our attorney Robert Tisdell.
In the past when she has done this i.e. Peeled Onion we were advised to send a letter and kindly ask the editor to delete any and all post referring to our family. The editors at the Peeled Onion did not allow her to use their blog to harass our family and deleted or did not publish posts in reference to the Murtaugh family.
I understand you are within your rights to publish but I am nicely asking you if you would please omit my brothers name from that post and/or delete the post and any other posts naming our family.
We were not or have not ever been involved in the Heidi Allen case. We do not know who is responsible but not convinced the Thibodeau's are either. We like many others just don't know. What we do know is we would never be involved or protect someone that was. Nor do we want our names attached to something like this.
Thank you for your time and if I can help in anyway to have the posts removed please don't hesitate to ask. I look forward to your reply and hope to hear from you soon.
Again thank you, Jewel

Also the photos that are posted are not my brother like she claims. They are both Roger Breckenridge.

I do find it hard to follow some of the sites/blogs/pages quoted in the post “where is God” however I read nothing which I would call harassing or slander. If indeed there are inaccuracies within the information referenced on other sites then your complains should be directed to those sites/blogs/pages etc. I have no information which would lead me to believe the author of the post was indeed the person you have named.

While the whereabouts of God may be in question the whereabouts of the post will remain unchanged.

Nice job of the city and half a$$ construction co. to COVER HOLE on the corner, after barricade fell into the hole! This city needs a construction dept. and fire every clerk of the works that are on payroll ! Also, drove around today and saw some real nice rental properties. They would fit in very well in Syracuse ( south side ). Those landlords must be real proud! Keep up the good work!

Say Hello to Tom Kells Our New Zoning Officer
I wonder if Tom "Carpet Bagger" Kells will be Billy's choice for Zoning officer or maybe City Engineer? If he is A.G. Schneiderman

There is no provision for impeachment in the N.Y. State Constitution.

Wades Diner
Now seriously, a benefit for employee's because they can't pay bills on unemployment, join the rest of us. People are running this benefit thing into the ground and it's losing it's meaning. Stub yer toe, lets have a benefit.
There's plenty of work for cooks and waiters in Oswego. Who makes a career out of these jobs anyway ?
Now the owner buys Dahl's diner a while ago and has a fire and the place gets rebuilt !
Now Wade's has a fire and is getting rebuilt. That's twice for one business owner. Really suspicious don't you think. Come to Ozwego where you can get away with murder.
This should have been really investigated by an outside source. Obviously the grease buildup inside the building started the fire because it never made it out the grease vents outside. You sit for a quick coffee and you left smelling terrible. What's that tell you ?

Today's Quote  November 8/2015

“Ma was always somebody in our lives. Love didn't enter into it really. She was somebody we looked after and took with us when we moved city to city, hideout to hideout. It is no insult to Ma's memory that she just didn't have the know-how to direct us on a robbery. It would not have occurred to her to get involved in our business, and we always made it a point of only discussing our scores when Ma wasn't around. We'd leave her at home when we were arranging a job, or we'd send her to a movie. Ma saw a lot of movies.”
Alvin Karpis

The judge will deny Gary a new trial. I just read my crystal ball.

Your Oz born and raised slumlord associates don't really like carpet-baggers,you are screwed,the jokes on you.Everybody knows that Jimmy Cloonan is one of Bill Boy's bestest buds? Way to keep the Nepotism a local commodity,Billy Boy! You(Kells) can bet that you'll receive the majority of any written violations,whether they're ever enforced or not is another question. Your new "friends" will slowly absorb your properties until you go back to where you came from.You will be the scapegoat who'll pay for all the sins of the rest of the slumlords.

The question is: How stupid do you have to be to actually leave your child at the mercy of pervs like Pauldine and his minions? Do you think that your political affiliation will protect you ..from one of your own?!Tony and friends will have complete access to the building,and the children.The State will not approve the facility for any Medicaid reimbursement-I've seen to that already!

Where is God?

Where is the truth? Where is there a politician in Oswego County who Cares enough for the pain these families face to do what's right? It seems no one cares that others are being murdered in Oswego ans brushed under the rug as suicides or accidents. These families all have the same story, same folks involved that's involved in Heidi. Where is God, when is there going to be anyone who will stand up and heal them? So they can stop crying and start to heal?

Richard Murtagh and Roger Breckenridge and Jennifer Wescott picked a van up in 1996 that was hidden, they yanked it up on to valley road. And dragged it to the mill in fernwood backing it between the mill and the storage building. Murtagh a dmitts this. That was in the fall of 1996. Then Jenn and Roger took off to Florida. These are Murtaghs post. And the family that lived there was on syracuse.com tonight confirmed who lived there what time frame and when this house burned down after. Spring of 1997, exactly what state police were told. Where are the true honest police that stand up and actually help?


How much more does State Police need???? Clearly a red flat bed truck used by Richard Murtagh later came back and picked up the van. Here's Richard Murtagh and Roger Breckenridge

Cloonan? You can't be serious Barlow.
Really, Jim Cloonan for DPW commissioner?
This is Barlow's new, fresh ideas promise?
Cloonan has never held a job he didn't kiss someone's political a$$ to get.

While Barlow is at it, maybe he'll bring back "Tatoo" for the water department
and "ol Billy boy" for police chief.

The good news is, with appointments like Cloonan, Barlow's political career will only last four more years.,

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.



Breaking News 8:15 PM

Oswego Police, NY State Troopers and The border Patrol have descended on a house at 177 Syracuse Ave.

The property is owned by Oswego slumlords Thomas and Tracy Kells. Kells was recently exposed for his illegal campaign contribution to mayoral candidate Billy Barlow.

Several sources claim Barlow has promised Kells the job of DPW Commissioner.

Today's Quote, March 2/15

"Some people stay longer in an hour than others do in a month"
William Dean Howells


Regarding The Comptrollers Report, which should be answered buy State Comptroller, the District attorney, and the Mayor of Oswego


Joe Smegelsky Jr.

“The chief of the Minetto Volunteer Fire Company in Oswego County spent nearly $6,000 in public funds on personal purchases such as guns and motorcycle parts, according to an audit released today by State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli. The audit revealed a total of $22,000 in misused funds, questionable spending and missing cash” http://www.osc.state.ny.us/press/releases/dec14/121914a.htm

Why were there no charges brought for Official Misconduct?

S 195.00 Official misconduct.
A public servant is guilty of official misconduct when, with intent to
obtain a benefit or deprive another person of a benefit:
1. He commits an act relating to his office but constituting an
unauthorized exercise of his official functions, knowing that such act
is unauthorized; or
2. He knowingly refrains from performing a duty which is imposed upon
him by law or is clearly inherent in the nature of his office.
Official misconduct is a class A misdemeanor.

Exactly what kind of firearm was purchased, long gun or pistol?

If it was a pistol who’s permit was it placed on?

Did Smegelsky have a permit and if so has it been revoked?

I have been told some crimes involving firearms bring mandatory penalties. If the alleged felony “grand larceny in the third degree” were to be prosecuted would it then bring a mandatory penalty/sentence?


Did anyone investigate to see if this overpayment was deliberate and possibly part of a scheme to divert monies to the chief?

“Vendor Refund Check Diverted — While reviewing cash
disbursements we found that the Company’s Treasurer had
mistakenly overpaid a vendor in 2012. After interviewing Company
officials, including the Chief, we found that the vendor had issued a
check for $1,863 to the Company as a refund of this overpayment.
The Chief subsequently cashed this refund check and retained the
funds for personal use. Prior to the conclusion of our audit, the Chief
reimbursed the Company $1,863 for this refund check.”



According to the Comptrollers Report, Smegelsky admitted he prepared invoices for a nonexistent company at the request of “other Company officials”.


“Four of the purchases were supported by
invoices with letterhead that indicated the Chief had a fire equipment


9 The invoice letterhead showed “J.Smegelsky Fire Equip.”


but, when we interviewed the Chief, he stated that he did
not have a business that sold firefighting gear and related equipment
and that he only prepared invoices because he was asked to do so by
other Company officials.”


S 175.05 Falsifying business records in the second degree.
A person is guilty of falsifying business records in the second degree
when, with intent to defraud, he:
1. Makes or causes a false entry in the business records of an
enterprise; or
2. Alters, erases, obliterates, deletes, removes or destroys a true
entry in the business records of an enterprise; or
3. Omits to make a true entry in the business records of an enterprise
in violation of a duty to do so which he knows to be imposed upon him by
law or by the nature of his position; or
4. Prevents the making of a true entry or causes the omission thereof
in the business records of an enterprise.
Falsifying business records in the second degree is a class A misdemeanor.

S 175.10 Falsifying business records in the first degree.
A person is guilty of falsifying business records in the first degree
when he commits the crime of falsifying business records in the second
degree, and when his intent to defraud includes an intent to commit
another crime or to aid or conceal the commission thereof.
Falsifying business records in the first degree is a class E felony.

In an unprecedented public plea for leniency from the District Attorney, we have heard how Smegelsky cooperated and how his alleged loss of six weeks pay at the Oswego Fire Department somehow figures into his punishment. According to the Comptrollers Report “the Chief was unwilling to state where he obtained the other items he sold to the Company”

Someone please explain to me how this translates into cooperation and why was there no investigation into where these items came from?

“Other than stating that he had previously
owned a generator and two helmets which he sold to the Company,
9 The invoice letterhead showed “J.Smegelsky Fire Equip.”
the Chief was unwilling to state where he obtained the other items
he sold to the Company.”






Today's Quote, January 26/15

"I am not an enemy of the negro, we want him here among us; he is the only laboring class we have."
Nathan Bedford Forrest


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.

Joseph Smegelsky


Audit of Minetto fire chief charged with misusing $22K in funds for guns, motorcycle parts completed
"This individual had keys to the cash register and went on a spending spree with the fire company's money," DiNapoli said in a statement.

They learn to be thieves and liars in Ozwego then they go out into the towns and ply their trade.


City Of Oswego, NY Firefighter Arrested


Joseph Smegelsky, Jr. Was arrested after an investigation by the New York State Comptrollers Office and the New York State Police determined there was a "misappropriation of nearly $20,000 in department funds" at the Minetto, NY Volunteer Fire Dept. where he also served, as their Chief.




Here is the gross pay this HERO collected as an Oswego City Fireman.

2011 - $59,803
2012 - $59,392
2013 - $62,616

According to some media reports he has a side business going like all the other Oswego Heroes. I suppose their union president Mr. Geracy will be coming out with a statement telling us these things would not happen if only the firemen were paid a living wage.

 I am sure that if any of this information is incorrect Joey will send in another post and let all us asswipes know about it.


 Meanwhile let's take up a collection and buy him some soap on a rope.


Watch and see what happens next. I bet Gilligan gives him a paid vacation.



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.
                                                                                                                    July 2/14


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.
