Today's Quote, April 24/14

“We have committed the Golden Rule to memory; let us now commit it to life.”
Edwin Markham
 


Executive Order
Word on the street is Mayor Gilligan may try to rent another ambulance for the fire department by means of an executive order. Everyone you talk to is against keeping the ambulance service so why do these people insist on keeping it alive? The only answer I can think of is the Mayor and the others who keep pushing this are getting some kind of payoff.

The only answer I can think of is the Mayor and the others who keep pushing this are getting some kind of payoff. As far as executive orders Gilligan should stick to things he knows something about like the milloinaire and his wife, the movie star, the professor, and Maryanne.

 


Bald Eagles
If you're interested in seeing the Bald Eagles in action and live, click on Lancasteronline.com. Type Bald Eagles into their search, go down until you read the April 3rd post and follow that to the bottom of the page. You'll see 3 Bald Eagles babies live. It's difficult to navigate. You'll also see how the male and female both care for the little ones. They are quite homely!
I didn't see the first 2 hatching but I did see the last to hatch. He was only half the size of his siblings and I didn't think he'd make it. It must be nature. It seemed the parents were ignoring the last one. Not true as he was just the last to be fed. As you can see this morning, he's coming along slowly but surely.
It's fascinating to watch the large fish being delivered by one or the other parent. It is then pulled apart and fed to the children!
I never knew so much about the Bald Eagles. I hope you find this as interesting as I do. It's 24 hrs. live. You'll find it. Good luck.

RE: Gillen, city councilors say Leotta is retiring
I think it was time for Mr Leotta to retire maybe 40 years ago. Time for younger people in this office. His ideas and way of doing things are lets just say back in the 60s. I think they should all leave and let new people in to run the city. What is in office now have not one clue on how to run the city without the 43% tax increase that was passed not to long ago. I think it is time for the people of Oswego to get out and vote to remove all the council and mayor should all get voted out of office.

That's all I have to say on this

Leota’s tactics and methods are more akin to NYC circa 1860


William Marcy "Boss" Tweed, leader of New York City's corrupt Tammany Hall political organization during the 1860s and early 1870s, is delivered to authorities in New York City after his capture in Spain.
Tweed became a powerful figure in Tammany Hall--New York City's Democratic political machine--in the late 1850s. By the mid 1860s, he had risen to the top position in the organization and formed the "Tweed Ring," which openly bought votes, encouraged judicial corruption, extracted millions from city contracts, and dominated New York City politics. The Tweed Ring reached its peak of fraudulence in 1871 with the remodeling of the City Court House, a blatant embezzlement of city funds that was exposed by The New York Times. Tweed and his flunkies hoped the criticism would blow over, but thanks to the efforts of opponents such as Harper's Weekly political cartoonist Thomas Nast, who conducted a crusade against Tweed, virtually every Tammany Hall member was swept from power in the elections of November 1871.
All the Tweed Ring were subsequently tried and sentenced to prison. Boss Tweed served time for forgery and larceny and other charges but in 1875 escaped from prison and traveled to Cuba and Spain. In 1876, he was arrested by Spanish police, who reportedly recognized him from a famous Nash cartoon depiction. After Tweed's extradition to the United States, he was returned to prison, where he died in 1878.

Tony's Retirement
It sounds like someone at the pall times got socked into the joke about Leota’s retirement. They will have to carry that old man out of there feet first if he has his way. Every mayor since Cahill, has talked about getting rid of him but no one had the guts to do it. Van buren claimed Leota would be retiring last June. Then he said definitely by January 1-2014. As long as Gillen is in there Tony will have a job for life.

Was Mary Vanouse fired?
Mary Vanouse, the City of Oswego’s so called Community Development Director was reportedly fired from her job, then two days later rehired because the City of Oswego could not find anyone to replace her to write “Grants”. (Okay then!) Let’s help the City of Oswego find someone to replace Mary Vanouse, the only prerequisite, the person must know how to write “Grants.” Applications can be submitted to the City of Personnel Department, Address: 13 W Oneida St, Oswego, NY 13126. Time for Vanouse to go back to where she came from...BUFFALO! They have good babysitting jobs that she is more than qualified to handle...

What Bird Is It?

Recently, I have been seeing many large birds soaring in the area between Rice Creek and County Route 7. I am hoping that they are eagles but my friend says that they are hawks. Can anyone tell me what kind of bird they are?
                                                                                                                    April 23/14


I haven't seen the birds you are referring to. However this time of year you seem to see all lot of Red-tailed Hawks and Vultures cruising the sky waiting for the rodent population to come out of hibernation. I must have misplaced my copy of Peterson's Field Guide or I would have a little more information at my fingertips. We also have to consider that the national bird the Bald Eagle is being seen around here in larger and larger numbers these days. Last but not least I understand there is a come back in the population of 0sprey or Fish Hawk. If you look at the top the power poles just before St. Peter’s Cemetery and again in front of the old county jail you will see a couple of platforms, which I understand were erected for Osprey nesting. I believe this bird has the largest wingspan (5’-6’) of any seen in our area.

Kaplewicz's new math
Would someone please help Kaplewicz with his math regarding the 2nd ambulance. Here are his figures from the 4/19 edition of the Pall-Times:

He claims the 2nd ambulance generates $1,000/day (which would be $365,000/year).
He claims the 2nd ambulance represents 12% of the call volume.

The expected 2014 ambulance revenue is $1,092,000. (from chief McCrobie's presentation)

How can 12% of the calls generate 1/3 of all the ambulance revenue??? Seems like Kaplewicz needs a refresher course in simple math.
                                                                                                                    April 21/14

 

I think by now everyone knows Kaplewicz is a lying sack of sh!t. What I find interesting is how this a$$hole votes to make Oswego County Weeklies the official paper of the City of Oswego but when he wants to sell his bull sh!t to the voters he runs to the Palltimes. I'm sure if he kissed baby Backus' a$$ he would have made sure it was given a place of prominence in those rags, which no one reads.

Mike is the worst coach a district can find. He does not pick his teams on talent. I have my Daughter on the team and she plays the outfield. He has limited his team to a bunch of non-talented players. Let's look at his roster---> senior- not playing at all---> junior----> never will play-----> 2 pitchers -----> can't play positions----->senior---only hitting. He thinks he is the greatest thing. I think Ahart would do better.

Sound Bite Blues
Although William Barlow seems to be sincere looking at a 5% reduction in spending, it will result in a big fat $0. The problem William, is you are young and lack experience and are following that fool out of the 7th Ward. Your plan, although well intentioned, has no teeth. You can not touch personal services, most of the contractual items can not be touched, benefits can not be touched, and all of this is 90% of the budget. At best, you might be able, among all the departments, have a savings resulting in $100,000 dollars in spending cuts. Most of the departments have already inflated their budget by more than that anyway, resulting in no savings. At the end of the year, you will vote to balance all accounts and you will never realize any savings.
The tax levy went up by over $3,000,000 which the taxpayers are stuck paying, and the few dollars you think will be saved, is imaginary, and when you do the budget next year, shockingly, you will be faced with more increases that you will not be able to contain. The “sound bite” for you and VanBuren looks good on paper, but in reality, it is only that, a “sound bite”. If you really want to make an impact, you need to dig deeper than a silly little 5% spending plan that will have no impact on anybody, least of all, those departments that have already fudged their budget.

5% cost cut

Look at the council trying to look tough with their proposed five percent cost cutting for every department. Where was this tough talk back in December?

Have no fear taxpayers, your tax burden may be lower. On the other hand, wait until you see the water/sewer hike that's coming even though the enterprise fund is "well funded" according to the mayor.

Re: Question About Heating Help

Here’s a two part answer for the lady with three kids and a busted furnace. I have found Chuck Chiasson with Chiasson Heating to be excellent, responsive and reasonable. Phone 342-0644, and my only relationship with them is as a customer. I would not recommend Tri-County in Fulton because I have had two separate systems that they installed that needed to be corrected. Part two: I went to the Fulton Home Show last week end and there was a booth for Superior Insulation Company from Auburn. They were passing out information about NYSERDA and you can learn more at http://stars.nyserdagreenny.org/. Essentially, we pay into NYSERDA on every National Grid bill and that money is used to pay contractors to do home energy audits. The contractor comes to your house and does the audit, submits the bill to NYSERDA and makes recommendations to you on how to fix any problems. Superior’s phone number is 664-0084 (no, there doesn’t appear to be any local Oswego/Fulton contractor that does these audits). However, NYSERDA (a State of New York agency) does have low interest financing programs that are based on income and family size. The lady that was running the booth at Fulton is Cathy and her phone number is 436-7794. My recommendation would be to contact both Chuck Chiasson and NYSERDA and get estimates and it might not hurt to get a third opinion.

Oswego FD
Seeing how Menter ambulance has been covering most of the city of Oswego for the past few weeks since our ambulances have been out service, how many issues have there been? Extended response times? Poorly trained people? I don't think so. Mean while back at the OFD our guys have been sitting around more, shopping more and enjoying not responding to the extra calls. Who wouldn't like being paid tons of money to do less work. When will our councilor see the writing on the wall and save the taxpayers some money!

Going to the store today and I either had to go through what I figured was just a puddle of water but it was a POT HOLE you could put a cow in.I either had to hit the pot hole or go around it and hit a car.About 5 mins after my low tire pressure light came on and off I went to the shop to have it checked out.They found a nail in it plus the tire sensor for that wheel was broke,so guess what?? The sensor is 85 bucks and a new tire 90 bucks.Maybe when I get it fixed tomorrow I will take the bill to city hall and see if they will pay it.No they can’t,because the lazy firemen are chewing up the city money.There are more pot holes in the city then is people.Think they can TAX the POT HOLES?????????

Missing Bill
I am missing Bill Sharkey in this insane sphere of nonsense, aka: the common council. What is desperately missing is Bill's voice of reason, common sense and empathy for the tax payer. Not one council member possesses these qualities. Bill understood that there is only so much money in one's budget, if you cannot afford to pay for something (ambulance service) you simply don't buy it. What is so difficult to understand about this concept? Obviously it is too deep a subject for the current council members. Wanted: seven council members with Bill's ethics and common sense. Bill's vote was never for sale. That is something these council members cannot say with out telling a lie.

NY taxpayers to see property tax rebate
http://www.newsday.com/news/region-state/ny-

taxpayers-to-see-property-tax-rebate-1.7545101


If any of you are planning on receiving this rebate you might as well forget it. When Kapelwicz starts running his lying mouth about bypassing the 2% tax cap you know the council is gearing up to stick it to us again. Just say no to Kapelwicz. We know the school board has no intention of abiding by a 2% tax cap. While I’m at it, when will we be seeing the council meetings televised? The council is so interested in being transparent, this would be a big step forward in achieving this goal. How many ways can the mayor and council screw the tax payer..........................let me count the ways!!

City and county DPW
It looks like the county DPW has learned from the city DPW. Does the city have GPS in the city DPW trucks?

Today's Quote, April 9/14

“Speech and silence. We feel safer with a madman who talks than with one who cannot open his mouth.”
Emile M. Cioran
 


New Sandwhich
P has developed a new sandwhich to replace the old PB&J sandwhich.
It's called the PB&K sandwhich, with a touch of M juice.
I've heard it's a total flop and tastes like a P.O.S. cause that's what is in the middle, what do you expect !
No surprise here.
I don't think that's what J. Kenyon is doing a story about, maybe !

City:
I still don't understand why our police chief, and fire chief got 20,000 dollar raises,for what!!!!!!!!!!!!. It must come with garbage pickup, as I watch the police chiefs garbage get picked up every week, by his father in a city truck, as that's were he works. I had to pay $165.00 to get rid of my trash, oh I forget that is a city perk, just like firemen plowing their driveways with new pickup with plow. We are taking it in the ass and they don't care. Last how about the asst. engineer trying to sell a house on west 5th for $129,000 and listed on books at $60,000, WTF is going on in this city !!!!!!!!!!

inspection fee
It didn't take long to see where Barlow's allegiance lies.
Does Billy boy really think a $40 increase in the rental inspection fee will break these land(slum)lords? Forty bucks really isn't going to change the poor quality of some of these places either way.

Also, let Mr. Brancato hire a certified inspector. Afterwards, make sure the inspector files a report with the city after Matty hands him a ten stating what was inspected. Should something then happen at the inspected property, at least the certified inspector would be liable, all for ten bucks.

The heroes tried for years to get their hands on Code Enforcement. Now that they have it they want to sub it out to an independent contractor. It must be too much like work for them. Isn't it strange how they see the city privatizing inspections but not the ambulance service.

 

Time line..... Gilligan shuts down the Code Enforcement Department at the end of 2013 and three plus months into 2014 he still has no one qualified to take over inspections. It's about time for mayor clueless to go to the Palltimes with another stupid apology. What a bunch of F**KING MORONS!



LOST FLIGHT!
We also wondered why other people did not happen to think of this! We did not have any idea, where! We just figured, IF IT WAS NOT FOUND IN THE OCEAN, then maybe it is on land, hidden away!!! How many agree?
 

 

 

The Leotta Saga Continues

Here are a series of three letters sent between former mayor Cahill and former 3rd alderman John Canale. As you can see Cahill had only been in office a few months and he was already covering for  Leotta and refusing to release what should have been public information to an elected city official. Cahill was probably the biggest drunk to hold the office of mayor in recent memory with the possible exception of his protégé John Gosek.

 

Leotta has been put in charge of Sewers and the Treatment plants, the High Dam, Zoning and god knows what else yet he has no qualifications or certifications for any of these. In the coming weeks I hope to produce additional documents with questionable signatures and expose instances of crooked dealings through the zoning office.

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

SCRUTINY

Long before the LION, IO, and Eye On Oswego, there was another tell all media source.

SCRUTINY, was printed on a mimeograph and sold for the price of a nickel. This was radical for the time (in Oz) but kindled a fire which still burns today.

 

Continuing where SCRUTINY left off, the LION intends to pursue the corruption in the City Engineers/Zoning Office until Tony Leotta is fired or brought to justice. The following five pages from thirty-eight years ago only begin to tell the story of this lying sack or sh!t and those who have covered up for him. If you have had any dealings with this man or been a victim of the corruption in his office and wish to make it public email your stories, pictures, or what have you to editor@oswegonylion.com

 

All communications will be kept confidential.

As evidence is gathered it will be forwarded to the appropriate State and Federal authorities.

 

NOT ONE MAYOR IN THE LAST 38 YEARS

HAS HAD THE GUTS TO GET RID OF THIS BUM.

LETS MAKE SURE LEOTTA AND HIS CREW ARE GONE BEFORE 2014!!!
