Tour Boat Cut Loose?
Anyone who witnessed the tour boat being cut from it's moorings should report the crime to the Coast Guard. The person responsible for cutting the boat loose is also financially responsible to the Coast Guard for the towing bill. The person also created a hazard to shipping and committed a misdemeanor. Security cameras? Maybe a hotel employee will upload the video to YouTube?
Sorry, gangster Broadwell, you do not own the riverfront. You have no more legal rights to it than Brent Hunneyman. You have no exclusive use of it.
All boaters on their way to snipe cormorants on Galoo Island should shine their spotlights into the hotel at night, every time they pass by.
Remember Sunrise Beach? That asshole who made his fortune shipping cocaine inside major appliances found out the hard way. By the way, let's all meet at Sunrise Beach this Sunday at noon for a nude LGBTQ and gender neutral cookout. Tony Pauldine will be there with the hot dogs.

select few
The question that needs to be asked is why a select few can get properties at less than market value and have the taxpayers fund pilot agreements. A select few play the game and buy the politicians in this city to foster their own goals. They don’t care about you. Did anybody ever find out what it costs the city to put on Harborfest and why Harborfest refuses to show the Common Council the balance sheet after the event? Oswego.... where the corruption never ends!

I Am Tired Of Fighting
Cut all your grass in the street. Run that street sweeper that does nothing. Sell a one million dollar building for $130,000.00 ( as they say ) , ask it, what is the lost of tax base for the next ten years, over if the building sits vacant ?
If the building sits vacant, city, county, state, school taxes still get paid! But with this new agreement, no tax income for 10 years, and do not let that 40 % after two years think he is paying ! One million dollar property for $ 130,000.00 Are you kidding me ? When does the common sense and business smarts come into play ? Oh, I forgot, we are still behind 50 years and all the circus show ( harborfest ) will not make it better!

Who Is Paying The Insurance On The Cahill Building ?
The city ( taxpayers ) is paying for the insurance costs, and will pay for it until the buyer takes ownership. And when the buyer is conducting business at the building, the city is still paying the insurance bill. If the city had a real lawyer, this deal would not look like this ! And the insurance underwriter, I am sure, is looking twice at this deal ! But once again, the taxpayers pay for another “ local business pro “.

Just what is going on at the NESTLE site,or should I say what is not going on.
What happened to the U-Haul deaL??
I go by there at least twice a day and there is nothing going on.Last words from the city leader was that no way they could make the date to have it down .It was also said the city would have to seek a new date and hope Aldi goes along with it.This does not past the SMELL test at all.THe city has been in the Valley news saying everything us tax papers don't want to hear like........IT most likely is going to cost $$$$$$$ to get a new tear down date.Guess who is going to foot the bill????? ,the TAXPAYERS will have to cough up the money because this mis-managed city is dam broke.
It is time to either tell the people up front to hang on to their shorts or scrub the whole deal.
If it was all torn down just what retail businesses will want to build there or in this dead city????
Lets see how much our already huge tax bill goes up when the fearless leaders sit down and give in to the the city unions.

Tattoo tax

I completely agree you go around town especially Walmart and you see ink everywhere. Ibthinknthe T should keep track of these welfare types and the tats they have. When they, the welfare examiners, see a new one estimate the cost of that tat and deduct it from the benefits for the month. We support them and they use the money to get inked up.
As Earl Pitts would say, "wake up America!"

Thank You

Recently we have had some quality of life issues in our neighborhood, We were pleased to see just how concerned our city officials are. We contacted our alderman with our concerns, which were forwarded to our code enforcement team and our police department who acted very quickly to have these concerns addressed.  It was helpful that we received updates on exactly what what actions were being taken and when we would see results. I am not sure everyone understands the job we ask our police officer to be involved in, and at the same time we complain about the overtime being used. If one had the knowledge of how many officers we have and how much city we have it would seem impossible to understand how they do the job that they do with such small numbers, we need more police officers. To place such a load on so few is not fair to our city and certainly not our officers, and I question their safety. We are a college city as well as hosting harborfest and many other lake and riverfront events, which further require a police presents. Our neighborhood would like to thank our city officials for their actions and concern shown, including our neighborhood watch who have changed our neighborhood in the last three years, their dedication to city is recognized and appreciated

Ask your aldermen why there is a pilot agreement  with the Broadwells ?  Which means no tax payout for ten years . Cahill building, a  building and  property worth a million , and yet sold  for  $130,000.00 and turns , sells  it back to the city, no taxes, which in turns, pauldine is able to make improvements on the taxpayers  money, which in turn, sold back to him $ 1.00 , and that building, once completed, does not have to pay  city, county, state taxes for ten years !    This is one of the dirt deals    that the city only knows how to do !  The aldermen and the board of education have one thing in common, they do not  know anything about business, taxes  and lawyers .  Harborfest must be the only thing they can see, why not ask the taxpayers what they want? I know, just another  new idea .

Cahill building will be under ownership of the city, not pauldine, this is a illegal  transaction, and also  prevailing rate nows comes into effect ! No wonder why the city of Oswego is behind  in development by fifty years !  Want to save some money for the city ? stop using the street sweeper, it only moves the mud around. Why not tell the pinheads not to discharge the grass, leafs and tree branches into the street!  Suppose to be on the curb !

Saturday Night Live

I don’t usually watch that show except when they have a show right after some major political events such as conventions. Well it was a repeat from October 2015 but as it turns out one of the featured guest appearances was by Hillary Clinton playing the part of a bartender. I have seen actors and actresses come on there and flub something or look like a deer in the headlights reading the cue cards but she really did a pretty good gob and it was funny.

"The biggest sin is sitting on your ass"
Rose F. Kennedy

Jennifer Wescott....1 minute 17 seconds
Yes, yes, Jenn, let's talk about your recorded phone call with Tonya Priest.


If you play the recording, listen at 1 minute and seventeen seconds, you'll hear Jenn say, "I couldn't get them to go." This is right after Tonya is talking to Jenn about Bohrer, Steen, and Breckenridge bringing Heidi to Jenn's house. You might have to play it a couple of times, but you will hear her say as clear as a bell, I couldn't get them to go. So Jenn, how's that 5 million coming? I guess no one paid you, now did they? JMO, dumb move on your part. Seeing as your "buddies" like to use initials, IMO, you totally screwed up. Nothing to save you now. Your buddy Oakes is up sheet creek without a paddle. The likes of Oakes, King, and Officer Moody, no pull in the Appellate Division. I'm going to listen in Rochester, just to see them squirm. No one will be allowed to mouth answers from the front row. No tiddily winks in the back row either. Also tell your buddies to leave their purple folders home, don't bring them to Rochester, Moody ADA, he won't even be talking. I would say that you and your racing pals are in a heap of trouble. This is going to be a wonderful hearing, fair and lawful, unheard of in Oswego County. Good luck Jenn, how do stripes look on you?

Oswego Speedway $$$$$
Well I myself knew that somebody would get their shorts in a twist about the state giving money to get the track ready for Super Dirt Week. As a person that has gone there for 63 years I’m very please to see this happen.

The history of the speedway is a long one and you can go anywhere and find people that have either been there or know of it.

Now to the money part. It was said “Why should the taxpayers foot the bill to do this” ? Why not? The tax payers are getting hit with everything else and most of the time money goes to needless stupid stuff and not a word from Jon Q Taxpayer. It boils down to if people like something they will jump with joy to see the state fund stuff to make it better.

Over the years that race track has brought millions into Oswego County and further. Businesses use to count on the track esp when they ran big events like Classic and so on. When the state floods Syracuse with BILLIONS for all sorts of crap that’s ok though but don’t give Oswego and Fulton anything they are just little fish in a big pond.

It makes me sick to see these politicians bilk us and fill their pockets and us taxpayers get crap.

There should be term limits on all of them so they won’t be sleeping so much with the drug co’s,ins co’s,nra and so on.

Let’s get the OSWEGO SPEEDWAY back to the great track it use to be. If was not for Jon and Eric it would not be there right now, they took on a dead horse and brought it to life again. This year car counts are down, fans base is down living expenses are keeping people at home or they find other things to do and the costs of running the speedway goes up..

To all the nay sayers out there continue to go to your high price SU Games, Baseball, Football Games Concerts and pay your 8 bucks for a drink just let us racing nuts enjoy the Oswego Speedway we love so much and THANK YOU NEW YORK for helping get the great STEEL PALACE back in shape .Just my 2 cents

Don Wilcox

P.S 63 Years going there and missed 7 shows, no hall of fame no nothing just a lot of fun years with my family and friends ,I will be there until my life ends to support that track. Hope I have a few years more.

Amen and God Bless Everyone.

Quit crabbing enjoy yourself you never know when your number is up

Mr. Hollywood
I wonder if Mr. Hollywood DA, is scared. He should be. I see his coke dealer in Albion was busted. Better hope you are not next. Time will tell, if you were already caught. Between you and slim ball officer Petrowski, or Sheriff Todd, Not sure which ones worse. Seeing as Todd doesn't know how to suspend or fire Petrowski. Just goes to show political powers can be as corrupt as they wish. Thinking no one can stop them. We will see if men in suits change that. Mr. Hollywood don't get mad if your picture was taken. You flew all the way to Hollywood w a dream of being photographed and ended up being nothing more than a coke head DA. Gotcha!!!

Oakes Call
Oakes insists in defending Petrowski. But did neglect to mention. He was on the phone during Tonya interview. Time date and stamped on the statement should match up to Oswego County phone records on Oakes phone. But then again the DA admitting he took a call during the most notorious crime in Oswego history. Is one two easy to admit, and two can easily be proven by phone records, the incoming call should be timed just before the signing of her statement. I'm certain Oakes phone is paid for by the state. Shouldn't be to difficult getting a copy, Well as long as Petrowski doesn't get his hands on them and use his famous delete...delete...delete. If murtaghs and wescott text weren't, important . That delete button wouldn't have ever happened. Common sense does not exist with in OCSD or DA office.

RE: confused petrowski
If I was his daddy I would slap him in his face for not trying hard to help find Heidi Allen. How would he like an investigater doing a half-a$& job looking into his missing sister, daughter, niece, friend? Was he also a part of the excavator being brought to the site after the ME’s were there? HHmmm. 3 dogs alerted, one from NYS police and 2 brought in by Lisa P. and he didn’t find that too coincidental? Didn’t see a link to steen’s admission? Fire him!!
Oaks, did you or did you not take a phone call while talking to Tonya? If you did, please tell me how you can be 100% or even 75% or even 50% sure petrowski did not tell her that he didn’t care if Heidi was ever found?. Hope ya’ll sleep well.
Add petrowski to that lying list…please

Gary Thibodeau ... The death of common sense
Let's start from the beginning. We know that there were people at the D&W around 7:13AM. There were people there at 7:38, 7:42 and after that. They have been interviewed and admitted it. But the DA believes the jail house snitches..not enough time to do this.

- Pure white van was seen by a woman and she told the OCSD so. They tried to convince her it was B&W. Per her words.
- No evidence in van, on GT's property, in his car and they both passed polygraphs. RT passed 4 of them. Now that's what I call desperation.
- No one identified RT or GT at the store.
- RT paid for his cigarettes and then kidnapped Heidi
- OCSD cannot place GT at the scene.
- RT called to tell them he was there...if you committed a capitol offence would you tell the police and would be hanging his brother too.
- RT's van was seen by someone driving by and again when he returned..out for a joy ride with a kidnapped person in the back?
- Bivens told them it was not the van he saw. They took him to RT's house and he still said it was not the van. In court he changed his mind and said it was the van???? Remember a Federal Investigation is privy to all your criminal records..all of them.
- Oakes said GT and Sharon took Heidi to MA on the 3rd, 4th or 5th. On the 3rd, neighbors testified that they heard yelling from GT's trailer. Two deputies swore in court that they watched GT's house on the 4th and 5th and the car was there most of the time.
- They searched GT's property after their star jail house witnesses told them some info. Problem is, they were told AFTER the search, not before..dates are available.
- Why did Steen get a text saying "Heidi CIAO"???
- Why were there only the same 3 people telling others that they did kill Heidi?
- Why would Steen say in court that Roger told him Heidi was in the van he took to Canada?
- A bracelet is returned 10 years later and the only one that mentioned anything about it was Mike Bohrer. Said a palm reader told him she hid it under the seat. Well if it were RT's van, the cops would have found it days after the crime. Gee I wonder who's vehicle that could have come from?
- JW " I didn't even know those guys then". But she told a friend not to say her and Roger went to Florida.
- JW said she lied on the phone with Tonya, took a poly about it and failed. Then told the investigator that she was told what happened to Heidi...but on the tape she said she didn't know...still think she was just trying to appease her Mr. Oakes? I don't think anyone believed what you said on Dateline.
- JW "after 20 years I still have to tell you guys there were 2 vans"...No one did anything about her statements..
- Others in court told of hearing MB, JS and RB say that they did it. What the hell does it take for them to investigate further......a different political party may help. Maybe someone else is calling the shots to stop more investigation. THIS AFTER ALL AN OPEN CASE!

Price Chopper is not doing themselves any favors with their checkout procedures ...

Could you please install some form of self-checkout option? I don't know if I'm just unlucky but when I go there to grab a few items and step into the "Express" lane there are invariably two or more people in line with like 19 items and it takes so frigging long. Usually of the ten or so possible lanes, 2 or 3 are lit up, and "express" takes essentially just as long as a regular aisle. Whereas at Walmart you can get in and out pretty quickly, at PC something that should take 2 minutes turns into 15.

Then there's the whole fiasco of the checkout person having to give the spiel about how much you saved, how much gas you have off, etc. More wasted time. Have an aisle specially designated for people who need that spoonfed to them ... I think most customers understand how to check the receipt themselves and don't really want to have to stand there for additional moments politely listening as the employee spits out the information. Can't we just f***ing make the transaction and move on please?

I end up avoiding PC sometimes just because checking out is such a ridiculously inefficient experience.

I Will Bet Looking At City Beach !
That the mayor, aldermen, and that city atty. and others, never asked for a “ contaminate soil analysis “ ! I guess some or most do not know about “love canal “. They also do not know about weed killer ! If it kills grass, might it not hurt people and pets ?
It might be time that anyone that runs for public office, that school records get previewed, you know, to check for math, chem. English, have they ever lifted anything over 25 lbs.?
So, who cleans the beach ? Who pays for the life guards? And think about the Oswego Fire Dept. , after all , they will have to maintain ( or they will claim ) a boating patrol, a ambulance on beach , hazmatt. crew on stand bye, more red tape, cost of insurance ! We do not need a beach !

He has been a problem in this area for a long time and running a drug ring while on the run from NYS division of parole ? You have to wonder how effective the parole division is. Mr Scullin is a menace to society and poisoning our city with lethal drugs, no excuses on this one. His father was not a good role model, he is a fully blown alcoholic and has been for many years, as well as his uncle.

RE: Complaints about Oswego?
Let’s see now? The “Fitzpatrick” Nuclear Power Plant in Scriba, just had a shut down because: “…temperatures in the spent fuel pool were rising because the reactor building's closed-loop cooling system was down, circulating pump failed.” Oil sheen spotted on the lake at “Fitzpatrick”. (China Syndrome? Or better yet when Fukushima exploded! It could have happened here at Fitzpatrick!) And Nine Mile 1 (1965) is old and ready to be shut down. but the owners want a subsidy to keep it in operation. Those nuke plants are old and unsafe.

Did you get your “K1” pill that was issued to everyone in a 10-mile radius of the nuclear power plants? And what did the Mayor and the Common Council approve? Why the spraying of “Round Up” in the city parks. *Christine Sheppard was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2003, seven years after she started using Roundup.* And a judge just ruled against “Monsanto” in this case (2016).“Roundup” causes cancer.

Now go enjoy the Oswego city parks where “Roundup” was just sprayed. (Take the kid’s along also.) And when that new high rise is built at the former “Flexowire” site there's a nice view of the sewage treatment plant across the street. And those big oil tanks when tanker trucks are being loaded the smell of petroleum is sickening, thick, fills the air! And don’t forget the brutal winters Oswego has. (This company that is going to build this high rise complex is a non-profit organization” Now does this mean that they won’t have to pay any property taxes?

And Amy Birdsall the so called Planning & Zoning Director for the City of Oswego got grilled by Councilor Walker on her incompetent job performance Amy Birdsall got questioned at the common council meeting why she needs to hire consultants’ for “Grant” writing when she is supposed to be the “Grant Writer” for the City of Oswego. And one of the consultant company Birdsall wants to hire is for building design. Why? Birdsall is supposed to be a design architect, a professional and she can’t even do this job? They got rid of Mary Vanouse because of her incompetence. Birdsall wanted to hire Vanouse for her office and was told no. Here read Birdsall profile. It was all lies - https://www.linkedin.com/in/inspiratecstudios

So tell us more about the “Gentrification” of Oswego and how it benefits people?

How about if the DA stops giving plea deals and get the convictions for the charges people originally face?
Is the tappy-tap really a detterrent for the addicts and dealers? How many are repeaters? How about finding ways for jobs to move into the area, not out?

There is so much the Oz gov’t could do to help their constituents…..or do they like the status quo?

"Cloonan's " Letter
If I remember correctly Jim Cloonan was a straight "C-" student in High School. In college? I'm not sure he even continued his education after HS.The author of the letter received at least a "B-" in HS English. It sounds more like S.Stepien's writing than Cloonan's. The verbose prose reminds me of his Oswego website mission statement.
Regardless of who wrote the letter the most revealing part of that letter was the paragraph that stated; "This collaborative interaction between local business and city government is a mere snapshot of what is going on at every level of government. The mesh between the two ought to be embraced and strengthened, as the obvious alliance is here to stay."
Let's translate this verbosity; "This collaborative interaction between local business and city government" (the conspiracy of cronyism and nepotism) "is a mere snapshot of what is going on at every level of government" (the big boys do it so can we) "The mesh between the two" (their shared common greed) "ought to be embraced and strengthened," (you shouldn't have a problem with our criminality and it will escalate) "as the obvious alliance is here to stay" (we're not hiding our unethical behavior in fact we're proud of it and it will continue)

Roundup and Cancer
It appears that the City Council, Mayor, and that Dumbass Carracoli has set the city up for long term law suits by spraying our parks with a carcinogen, Roundup. I believe it was dumbass that said the city could not break the contract with the city employee, Fireman, that was spraying our kids with this carcinogen, and will leave the taxpayers with potential law suits that could in the millions over a few years. Did Agent Orange mean anything to you? That's right, the kid mayor wasn't even born yet when Viet Nam was going on, and none of the rest of the as it is still a e above mentioned were ever exposed to the military. You might want to look up Agent Orange as it still a problem with a lot of Viet Nam Vets. History keeps repeating itself.
I am still waiting for Alderman Cordino to send us a picture of him and his family picking on the ground where Chase sprayed the herbicide.

RE: Recent Heroin Arrest
While I agree that heroin addiction is a serious problem that needs the community's attention, I must respectfully disagree that Mr. Scullin is simply a victim of a terrible disease. Your run of the mill heroin addict doesn't carry around 543 doses of heroin. A drug dealer carries around 543 doses of heroin - a drug dealer whose sole purpose is to disseminate the material and get people hooked. Yes, Scullin is most certainly an addict; however, he is much more than that and whether or not he is a loving son and father is irrelevant to the fact that HE is contributing to the epidemic. This is not the case of someone who is simply an addict; this is the case of someone who was well connected within the drug community and used those connections when he got out of jail and continued down a terrible path. I have to disagree that addicts from Oswego go to Syracuse to get their "fix." They simply call up dealers like Mr. Scullin, who continue to bring this horrible material to our streets. Before you say that Mr. Scullin wasn't dealing, ask around. Very quickly you'll hear that he has been all over town throwing money around like it's water.

The Mayor was correct in what he said. We need people like this off the streets. This isn't the Mayor's fault. It's not society's fault. It is the fault of the over-prescribing of opioid pain medications and the failure of patients to follow dosing instructions. It is the fault of dealers who make heroin readily accessible and as nearly as inexpensive as picking up a six pack of beer and a pack of cigarettes. You are probably very close to Mr. Scullin so your judgment on this issue is skewed. If you were truly close you would have taken him to Farnham Family Services on W 2nd St in Oswego or Schuyler St in Fulton. Farnham is a local non-profit that assists in combating heroin addiction. Before you say that Farnham isn't effective - did you try, did Mr. Scullin try?

Complaints about Oswego
With all of the "dirt" on this website concerning our Mayor and his administration, you'd think he'd have been impeached by now or certainly at the least, under federal investigation.

This is the problem with Oswego. Love or hate Jim Cloonan, he wrote a very positive account of the current state of affairs in Oswego, the primary purpose of which appears to have been to highlight recent code enforcement actions and to express support for continued or even more stringent action. That is a GOOD thing. Residents are always complaining about slumlords and people who don't take care of their property. Now the City is actually doing something about it.

Neighborhoods are being revitalized - the Renaissance Association signs are EVERYWHERE. We are talking hundreds of thousands of dollars of investment by homeowners in this town. This is a POSITIVE thing. Why can't we spend some time focusing on the positive things that are happening and give the personal/political attacks a rest.

It's easy to sit behind the glow of your computer monitor or cell phone and bash the Mayor and his administration. Instead of doing that why don't you attend a Common Council meeting, voice your concerns or even set up a meeting with the Mayor. Why not provide some alternatives to proposed actions? Why not ask questions rather than just making false statements behind a veil of anonymity? Better yet, run for Council or Mayor and then you can change things. I know it's easier to sit on your ass and make unfounded and frankly, slanderous remarks about every single person in Oswego. That seems to be the MO in this community.

Cloonan's Ghost Writer
Now come on, get real, you all know that there is no way Jim Cloonan could have penned that ridiculous letter. That was a soft ball letter with no facts or reality to it, and was authored by one of the Barlow suck-up's to try to counter the negativity about the kid mayor. It would be more likely to be Carracioli or that regular person attending the the council meetings called Heath, better know as Heath Bar.
I am sure that the below listed rhetoric is something that Jimmy learned from his high school English classes. Probably uses it every day in his conversations on his job. All the statements below are of a feminine nature and fits the two people listed above, although there are plenty of other Republican sheep that would have authored it, but it defiantly was not James G. Cloonan!

4th of July Rape

The taxpayers of the City of Oswego were forcibly raped over the weekend by the Barlow* machine.
The OFD in full regalia "coincidentally" scheduled their "whenever they need money" fire hydrant flushing on SATURDAY at time and a half on the payroll! They accomplished this feat of heroism with a fully crewed ladder truck and ambulance! The OPD was also in on the act with their own vehicles but to what purpose? Retirement padding is the answer. I can see the need for the ambulance, in case a fat hero pulls a groin muscle unscrewing the hydrant cap. The ladder truck was there in case one of the heroes started a fire with his Cuban cigar. It took them exactly 2 minutes to flush the hydrant. I timed it. When they finished their important, had to be done on a Saturday task, they all disappeared inside the ambulance for over 25 minutes! Drinking, drugging, sexing it up? Maybe they were playing video games or catching up on sleep? All on our dime.
The "private" fireworks display, that was only visible from the Breitbeck Park area? The idea was to force attendance to Breitbeck Park for the benefit of the vendors, Barlow concessions included. Barlow's gang seeks a financial reward from every angle. Now they've privatized the 4th of July! What a bunch of Trumps! No wonder the Republican Women's Caucus is voting to endorse Clinton for President! If our very own mini-Trump (Barlow) had a capital "city" for his "Caliphate" it would be Breitbeck Park.
The biggest crooks in town? All of the "small-handed" Firemen, Cops, City Dept. heads, Ex-Firemen, Ex-Cops, All City employees, past and present, who are now slumlords and or profit from City contracts. S. Burger is a good example. His sense of ethics reminds me of his hero, W. Ruggio. A. Chase is another fine example of a gas filled turd that floats to the top of the bowl making it difficult to flush. What motivates these people? Greed, pure and simple. Did I forget to mention certain realtors are also involved in these less than transparent schemes. They work "hand to mouth"(pun) with the slumlords to obtain rental properties at a fraction of their value.
The proposed "homeless shelter"? What realtor is currently involved in this scam? Federal grant money is the issue. How much can they skim? What are their liabilities? Never mind that the proposed shelter will house level 2 and 3 sex offenders from 4 counties! Why don't the slumlords just continue to rent to them? Won't they lose some of their best tenants?
On the plus side, when certain cops drive home drunk from the North Port bar they can stop by to visit the pedos and play poop-patrol with their nightsticks (if they're so inclined) It might even be consensual. Cops used to hate pedos, now they seem to profit from them somehow.
Oswego politics is pure P.T.Barnum. I would have said Boss Tweed but that's giving these amateurs too much credit.

Cloonan Letter to the Editor.....BS
Are you kidding me, if Cloonan wrote that ridicules letter, I'll eat his hat. That was the standard Republican Bull$hit tactic. Have the committee write a bunch of letters and then get someone to sign the one they think will get some traction. It is well known people like Cloonan are just political pawns, unable to write the letters themselves. The only reason that Bull$hit letter was in the paper is because of the truthful negative postings on this site about that clown Barlow and the lowlife crud that are supporting him. There have been too many facts about the illegal actives this group has done over the first six month and they are perplexed as to how to counter it, therefor, a Bull$hit letter with no facts to the paper. The City of Oswego is positioned to soar alright, right into the sewer along with the corrupt Barlow Administration, and the crap they are feeding the taxpayers.

Another step in pushing thru something the taxpayers and aldermen do not understand ! Sounds like what the Oswego Board of Education has been doing for years, since the fact that there is low voter turn out, any B.S. will get through ! Greed gets bigger as lazy people get more lazy !

Recent Heroin Arrest
Billy Barlow needs to educate himself with the Heroin epidemic. The Oswego Drug Task force didn't get a criminal off the streets as Billy boasts, they got a severely addicted man off the street. A loving Son, Father and good heart, loved by many. This man has been jailed and released, as numerous addicts have. Gone to spend time on our buck, no rehabilitation while doing their time. Many come out with their addiction ringing through their heads larger than manageable; haunting them until a weak moment strong enough for them to succumb once again.

Educate yourself Bill Barlow and do whatever you can to help this community to get a methadone clinic here as soon as humanly possible. Scullin is an addict with a serious disease, get him and the rest suffering this horrendous disease the help they need.

It's a community and nationwide emergency, please treat it as such. Any Oswego addict will find their way to Syracuse to get their 'fix', keeping the drug off Oswego streets does NOT stop addicts from getting the heroin they need to get through the day.

We need to control heroin addicts'
'fix' by keeping them out of the pain of withdrawals by providing them the meds they need. Take the money out of the Syracuse drug dealers hands and to medical professionals.

Keep these addicts out of trouble, out of our courts, back to being productive community members and most of all- getting their lives back.

The County of Oswego is spending over, are you ready, $63,000,000 supporting poverty through DSS. Rudgick thinks by spending $1500 per person (City Officials) is going to make them sympathetic to the plight of the 21,500 people in poverty is a total waste of money. Most of our officials look down their noses on these people and would never sit down with them to understand how and why they are in the position they are in.

Do you reall think some cheap chiseling Oswego fireman would spend that kind of money on a lawyer??????????

Best Case Scenario

The city has to eat a $12,000 contract and no one or no pet gets sick or dies from herbicide poisoning.

It should be a no f**king brainer.

“According to the city attorney, the resolution (to rescind) is in violation of the 2016 Rules of the Common Council”

But the mayor disposing of city property without council approval, awarding $25,000 contracts without seeking bids, and doing business with a city employee are not violations of the charter or anything else.



This Mayor, this City Attorney, this DPW Comissioner and this City Council

do not give a rats ass about the health and safety of the people of this community.

School Board Election
I was going to vote for Aimee Callan, but after seeing yard signs with Bell/Callan,
I have changed my mind. If she has built a coalition with Bell, there is no way I could vote for her now. Jim Bell is right up Ballow's butt and was given a $25,000 no show job at City Hall. If he is running, it is not for the kids or the school, he is looking for something (job or himself, job for relative, and so on).
I think Amiee may have just lost her bid for school board by joining up with a guy like Bell; it is not good for her reputation. Sorry Aimee, you just lost my vote and maybe many more.

Oswego City New Web Site, are you kidding me, $25,000 for that joke
The new web site isn't any better than the old one, so the city could have saved $25,000. I guess when you contribute to Baby Barlow's campaign like "Step one Creative", you get a $25,000 payback for a shit job.
I went there today and the fist thing you have to endure is a picture of Baby Barlow with his arms crossed like he is modeling his new too tight suit, with a stupid flower in the lapel and that dumb look on his face. ( the look matches his intelligence)
Most of the tabs have very little information, or say that information is coming which by the looks of most of the tabs, you will get a simple little statement about nothing. Then when you get on a tab and that loop of pictures change, it moves the information you are looking at and you can see half the page and half the picture. real professional!
When you want to go to another tab, it takes you to the home page, a picture of city hall, then a tab to try to get the info.
This is a total mess and Step One Creative should be ashamed of the site , but when you get $25,000 for a donation, did they really care about the quality of the web site.
I can get more information about the city from the Internet than what that piece of trash offers. It will be the last time I will waste my time going to that shit site called the Oswego City Web Site.

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.

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.

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.
