All wi-fi- is going to do is make it easier for the drug dealers and students to connect then we will just have more deaths from overdose. Hummmmmmmm maybe wi-fi is good after all.

RE: Beat Cops
People made fun of Mike Dehm but he had cops on foot and bicycle patrolling the neighborhoods. I forget who the new chief is but one thing is for sure he couldnt make a pimple on Dehms a$$. Barlow should be looking for a new police chief as well as a fire chief.

town of Oswego – taxes
Does anyone know why they want to raise town of Oswego taxes 150%? I would not be able to live here. We have no street lights, sidewalks, curbs, sewers, police dep’t, paid fire dep’t. Besides the DPW what do my taxes pay for?
Can’t pay any more

Matthew T. Hallinan
What does the T stand for Trump.
He sure sounds like him nothing but excuses and blaming his screwups on somebody else. In one breath he blames the head of HR for losing his job and the next he is begging the city to take him back. Its comforting to know his father brought him to work as an infant 33 years ago. I suppose that’s why Matt brought his kids into the plant rather than spend the money on babysitters. Imagine the lawsuit if one of them had got hurt on city property. You think rating out everybody else makes you look better. Go away and take your old man with you.

Marcell The Oswego Slumlord Roach King



Just a few years back this house was in the headlines because the cockroach infestation was spreading throughout the neighborhood. the lawn was literally crawling with the things. Morrisseau got Neal Smith to condemn just one apartment in the house so he would not have to take them to court. Meanwhile he continued to collect HUD rent from the other tennants.





Today's  Quote  October 22/2016

 The tenants have legal rights to live in a property unless they’re ordered to leave by a judge.

How in the hell does the city have the right to tell them if they don’t leave, they’ll be arrested?

Boo Hoo
Poor Marcel and Patti could not pay their taxes because he was so sick but it did not stop them from collecting the rent from their HUD tenants.
How the hell did you have the right to use Code Enforcement to condemn individual apartments to get rid of tenants and save yourself the cost of going to court? Neal Smith is not around to protect you and do your dirty work anymore and it looks like you and your wife’s fat a$$es are up sh!t creek now.

It must have been 8-10 years ago you called me and threatened to pay someone to beat me up. I am much older and feebler now but I can think of nothing I would like better than to knock you on your fat a$$ and watch the blubber bounce you back up again so do not be afraid to stop by.

You have been a lazy worthless sack of shit your whole life and now your old slumlord friends are turning on you. That roaring sound outside is only partially the wind and rain the rest is myself and a lot of others laughing like hell at the big fat moron Marcel Marsupial.


Beat Cops

Officer walking the City would be a great idea! I remember them doing it years  ago, and the bike patrols were a joke,

letter to the editor
The most important issue facing our area is the economy. The factories are closed. The mills are gone. The family farms are disappearing. We need someone in Congress who understands what’s going on and wants to help. That’s why I support Claudia Tenney for Congress. Claudia is a small business owner who employs people right here in New York. In the State Assembly, she has fought the job destroying taxes and regulations of Governor Cuomo, and she’s even taken on the spineless Republicans who enable Cuomo’s agenda. Claudia Tenney hasn’t forgotten where she came from or who she’s fighting for. That’s why we need her in Congress

                                                                                                                                        October 22/16

Claudia Tenney has “even taken on the spineless Republicans who enable Cuomo’s agenda”  Now her latest commercial claims she wants to go to Washington and fight Hillary Clinton. The republicans are so wrapped up in fighting and hating anyone that is not Republican. While Claudia has been honing her myopic skills she has missed the fact that the voters are sick and tired of the gridlock. They want to see their elected officials work together for a change. By her own actions and statements Ms. Tenney clearly is not that person.

FD Ambulance
While listening to the scanner I have noticed for the last couple weeks that we are no longer running our fire department ambulances? Is there a reason why? Are the firefighters protesting the layoffs and not doing ambulance calls? It seems that Menter ambulance is being dispatched to all of the ambulance calls and seems to be handling them fine. Is this a permanent change? Are they going to cut more firefighters if they are not doing ambulance work? Maybe our city taxes will actually go down for next year if they do.

I have heard the OFD went to City Hall at budget time looking for another new ambulance and extra funds to fix one of the others. Supposedly they were told they were not going to get a new one and if the others did not run park them and let Menter take the calls.

RE: Barlow and WiFi
Why would Barlow need to hire security for? I thought that is what the Oswego City Police Department is there for. Let the city police walk around downtown like they did a long time ago. That is their job right? Might help with crime and drunk drivers and or people late at night if they did put a few officers walking around. Or is that asking to much of them.

Just what I see would be the right thing to do if one needs to have free WiFi downtown.

Just me
On the outside looking in.

Re: Taxi license get a clue
First, lol. Am I not understanding what the moral councilor is wanting? Don't the cabbies pay a $300 fee, and too add, the councilor wants to put a fee on the license? Doesn't a Syr. cabbie pay $300 to operate in a much larger economical area? But, why would I ask any cabbie? According to you, they're not choirboys...funny. I thought a medallion was a yellow cab?
Secondly, lol. This city has taken so much from the taxpayer and "certain" businesses, that they are all struggling to stay afloat. This city is spending like crazy, and the taxpayer is getting screwed! A small business in Oswego can't survive if there is no business. To add, maybe if we put a fee on dough wagons, we would get a better fried dough? Too funny.
Third, still lol. The cab companies will write up a receipt, and may or may not log every ride. Why is it, that the wagons don't have a register?
Lastly, ahhh. When the term "of good moral character," is used by NYS, it is used more in the way of references. NOT, what the councilor meant it to mean. Cabbies in general are not choirboys? Neither is the mayor and councilors, if they're going to attach a fee to everything, and tax the taxpayer for everything. Is that, NOT choirboyish? It is the reason your seeing many homes for sale in this city.
This is a warning people. Wake up, we don't need these types of guys in business!
My $0.02, cause that's all I have. A city government is in place to look out for the best interests of the people. We pay you! Not, to think up ways to get monies to pay for a payroll that is out of control. There are only 18,000 people in Oswego. Ever ask yourself how many work for the city? Then, how many live in the city? Another point...what do we have, that many need, and many would pay for? Got a clue? Because, our city gov't does NOT!

Please Help me
Thank you for taking the time to read this. My name is Matthew T. Hallinan, and this is my story. I am son of Gary Hallinan, superintendent of the wastewater treatment plants. I have been going to the plants for 33 years. I was there a week after I was born. I scored in the top three when I took the civil service test, and was the only one with waste water back ground. Besides working for the city of Oswego I have had 3 other wastewater treatment jobs. I was born and raised in Oswego, graduated from Oswego High in 2001, played football for the Bucs. This town is where I was raised. Where I plan on dying.
I was hired 8 years ago by Nancy Sterio, and the then superintendent Mike Coffee. My father wasn’t even part of the hiring process, so that no one could say I got my job because of him. I busted my ass, cleaned everything I could. Worked all the overtime I could. I worked more overtime then all the other operators added together. I gave my all to the plants, did everything I could. I butted heads with some people. Everything I did I had targets on me, because I was the boss’s son. If I stepped out of line at all it was a huge deal. I was harassed every day. I lost count of how many times I had fire crackers thrown at me, or my stuff messed with. Or was soaked by someone. But I never said a thing, I watched as everyone broke the rules over and over again. I listened to story after story, of how it was years ago, guys coming to work drunk, guys drinking on the job, guys leaving working and going to bars during their shift, while they were on the clock. Guys coming to work every single day with hand guns on them. Guys shooting their bows at work, riding snow mobiles, camping out in tents, having girls meet them in their vans, sleeping their whole shifts away. You name it people did it, and never ever got in trouble for it. I was actually slapped across the face by one guy. I never did a thing. I was even stalked by one of the operators that was forced to leave, Rita never did a thing, he would wait outside the plants and watch me. I never threw a pump through a door, yes I was pulling the pump, but it weighed over 300 pounds, I couldn’t throw it, I could hardly drag it, the cart that was hooked to it, came undone and came around and hit the door. When it went to start days a lot of this ended, and then as my father took over a lot more ended. My father looked at me as the gap between ages, he relied on me to be his eyes and ears of the place, he passed on all of his knowledge of the plants, taught me everything he knew. I saved the city hundreds of thousands of dollars during the upgrade, the city didn’t have an engineer on site, so I would pay attention to the workers, make sure they never cut corners, or didn’t do what they were supposed to. I know where every new pipe is, every new wire, half of the things installed were my ideas, that I gave to my father to help us better the plants. I improved the plants operation all the time, when we took our secondary tanks down it would take a week to do one tank, we have four of them, so a month to do them all, I came up with a way to get it down to 4 hours for one tank, all the tanks done in less than a week. We also have final tanks that we would take down in two days, with 4 tanks, its took over a week to do, I got it down to doing them all in one day. I have my 3A license, the city spent well over 10K sending me to Morrisville to take classes, to get it. I am now eligible to get my 4A. I have my train the trainer course, so I can save the city money and train guys myself.
I was always being harassed by John McGrath. It was no secret he didn’t like my father; he was quoted telling another man never to trust either of us. I could do the same mistake as the other guys and he would freak out, yell at me, write me up. He refused to see that the system was flawed, I tried to tell him but he would never ever listen, now he is seeing it since the new guys can’t learn it. He then took advantage of my emotional distress to set me up. All because the DEC and EPA was coming down on him and the flaws in his system, he blamed me, because I was there when the things happened.
Let me tell you about those days, first was when my father was on vacation, he called me at the Westside and asked me to go east and put the number 3 final tank online, we have a raceway and all the other guys mess it up. He knew I knew how to do it right. Well, word got to the other guys and they took it upon themselves to do it. I came in Saturday morning and found that they indeed had messed it up. The other operator had done things that no one would ever do. I went right to work to fix it, I didn’t care about grabbing a sample or calling the DEC. I knew the most important thing was to fix it. I also knew that the automatic samplers would take samples and that the operator the next day who collected those samples would call the DEC. All I was worried about was fixing the problem. Next one of the other operators came in, and found me going to the bathroom, he freaked out because the return pump was off. It was off on purpose, I had gotten the level down in the tank, and shut flow off to it, and didn’t want to overload the other tanks with the back flow from that tank, I knew that it had to be reintroduced to the system slowly. That was the first time we had problems
The next time happened a couple days later, we had a huge rain storm come through, and had a complete wash out, because we had so many solids in the final takes from before it was easily washed out. I headed down back to do what I could. We were also experiencing an overflow at the detention basin, which I had to deal with also. Gary at the time was in city hall doing interviews. So the other guys were coming to me. I had one operator calling me asking me questions, I had a maintenance man coming to me telling me a pipe was broke to the detention basin, I had Gary calling me talking to me about what to do. And then of course we had an operator come from the Westside. He wasn’t helping me at all, he was actually only worried about calling the DEC. I wasn’t worried about calling them, I knew we had 24 hours to call and the most important thing at the time was to fix everything and get the system working right. So here I am with two phones going off, and 3 other people asking me questions. Here I am, the youngest one there, the one who had been there the less, and everyone was looking to me for answers. And I forgot to hit a button to restart the sampler. It was a mistake; one I wish I had never made. But it was an accident.
Meanwhile when I was trying to fix the system the other operator was calling the DEC, instead of helping me. The DEC showed up, and put a lot of the blame on John McGrath, saying the system was flawed, the sample system was flawed. He blamed me because I was the one at the center of it.
I was never charged with anything because I didn’t do anything wrong, I have actually spoken to the DEC and EPA, and they have told me I did nothing wrong. I did my job. It was the system that was flawed.
I then started going through a very bad divorce, The next day was my oldest daughter’s birthday, I hadn’t seen my kids in two weeks, I had to cancel the party I had planned for her. I was a wreck, but I went to work anyways, mostly crying all day. John McGrath had told the other operator that I needed to hand in a sample. From the day before, he knew I wasn’t at work, knew I couldn’t have gotten one, he marked all the bottles, and told the other operator I needed one, me not thinking right at all went up and got one, yes this was wrong, very wrong, but like I said I was a wreck, this isn’t an excuse, but I didn’t want the operator who watched the machine the day before to get in trouble because of me and I had seen guys take samples the next day for the machine a million times. I just wanted the day over. Without anyone else getting in trouble. We already had the DEC and EPA breathing down our necks we didn’t need more. But John McGrath didn’t see it that way. He saw it as a way to set me up, use his position, to get rid of me. So the spot light was taken off of him.
I have been contacted many times by the members of the union and they all want me back, the president of the union actually said and I quote, “matt no one knows these plants like you do.” That was said by Kevin White. Doug Sakeman just retired, my father will only be there for a few more months, Paul Galletta will be retiring in march, and Mike Burnes a year after that. All that knowledge and experience washed away. I was going to be the one to bridge the gap between old and new. Once they are gone there will be no one who knows the plants, no one to get up at 3 am when it rains and do overflows.
Now the union has talked about getting a lawyer involved, proving what the city did was wrong, john got a way to get rid of me and Rita Tickle went with it, then black mailed the old mayor and the new mayor with it. I don’t want to get a lawyer, and sue the city and prove they did wrong, I just want to go back to work, and work my ass off.
I don’t want anything more then to come back and work, to bust my ass for the plants I love, to kill myself for the city I was born in, I don’t want to see these plants go down the drain. I have put too much time and effort to just walk away. I’m not going away, I’m not giving up, these plants were my life, and I want to return to them. I believe John McGrath made a deal with Rita Tickle and said either get rid of me or he was leaving. They can’t find anyone to replace him because they aren’t willing to pay anyone enough, you can ask anyone at the plants, he is slipping, he forgets things every single day, misses deadlines, forgets to make up chemicals, tells them to do something one way one day and a different way the next, then yells at them for not doing it right.
I have sent this letter to every single alderman in the city, put it in the mailbox of every department in the city, to the city lawyer, and sent this to the press in the city. I refuse to believe I grew up in a city that would allow this kind of things to happen. Yes, I made mistakes, yes I have paid for them, but nothing makes a man humbler then an empty pocket, no idea how he is going to feed his kids, no idea how he will pay his bills, and no idea how he will make it. I have done a lot of growing up in the last year. And all I want is for my story to be heard, and for the people of Oswego to know I never ever turned my back on the plants. Please, I beg of you, help me return to the job I love, to the plants I love. With me coming back Gary would be willing to stay longer, to help out, to give back. Right now he has no reason to, but with me there he would stick around, then do training, and be there to help out when I have questions, after he leaves. I am not saying I am the key to making everything better, I am just saying I can help out a lot. Please help me help the plants. I know there are still good people in this city, who will help me.

Isn’t it about having the most qualified people in positions to make sure the work is done?

Thank you,
Matthew T, Hallinan

Leigh Hunt


Taxi license get a clue
First off- if you ask a cabbie anywhere else if they could operate for free or $100 they would think you were crazy. Ask around what a medallion costs in Syracuse.

Secondly, maybe if the fee was a little higher we might get a better class of cab in town. I wouldn't send my mother in law in one let alone a child. Feel bad for these girls I see hopping in at Walmart, with some of these low life's and the broken down sh## box dujour with the half ass lettering schemes. Ever notice these cabs look like they bought it at the junk yard they run it until the wheels fall off then the get a equally scary mobile and run that for a couple weeks.

Third, would love to see the log book on these cabs to see if it matches the taxes paid.

Finally anyone who has an actual license to practice any profession in NYS knows NYS uses and asks if you meet the "good moral character" clause. Sounds like the city's lawyer doesn't want it out the cabbies in general aren't choir boys. What other business has to look to the NYS Corrections code for guidance. This is a warning people. Wake up we don't need these types of guys in business.

Barlow has the brilliant idea of having free Wi-Fi downtown, so now all the kids will be right in downtown causing problems and messing around. "His response was they are going to hire security". Really?? Makes a lot of sense after laying off firefighters! I see all this grant money we got is going to go to great use! Mommy and daddy said get home you have to clean your room and eat dinner!

"Most people sell their souls and live with a good conscience on the proceeds"
Logan Pearsall Smith

God darn Crazy
It seems wescott says Roger might be involved because of his comments and him having threats brought to her. She feels. If it's so, then we need to get to the bottom of this. It is in her Rojak interrogation. Holy Christ she says. She also says. If there's information on the missing van then that's what she knows about. All of them each made admissions but one, Breckenridge but he bragged openly and the other suspects confirmed that story at different times, places and had zero knowledge of the others comments, or of the witnesses. Even Bohrer did. Steen, Wescott, and witnesses that also testified against Breckenridge. They suspects claim she was disposed of in the van. Only one says she wasnt and that samne one said he knew where she was buried. Their own comments only confirmed what the witnesses testified to Breckenrides claims. Wescott also whisphers in the phone call, I couldn't get them to go, she calls them animals. She knows more than she leads on. We should get to the bottom of this. Because it is God darn crazy and to coincidental. For once I agree with Wescott.

"Of good moral character"
Are you f***ing kidding me? This council clown has the odacity to say something like this? Of good moral character...what like daddy? Again, the mayor and the clowns are at it again. Another fee. Yup, got to make the city's payroll. We want businesses to come to Oswego, yet we are showing anyone who may be interested, that we will eventually add fees, taxes, and any other charges we can drum up. Just ridiculous. And, Walker adds, "looks good to me." Keep pushing people out of Oswego assholes. You hav'nt got a f***ing clue. This "klan" should be investigated, for crimes of stupidity, taxing, fees, and an assault on a community people that can't endure anymore. "Of good and moral character," none of you should be in the position your in. Too funny, yet too sad.

Hey, Oswego lion.
https://oswegotweets.wordpress.com/2013/08/01/the-dark-side-of-oswego-a-look-at-the-oswego-lion/ Hey, Oswego lion. Some one, has a bone to Pick with you. They must, believe in their little reality world that they are the most brilliant person in Oswego, N.Y, and the rest of you are uneducated, idiots that simply have to much time on their hands. Lol !!! I'd also love to know what Oswego has to offer,how can it possibly be great with so many idiots posting on this site. Countless numbers of different citizens, talking about important matters that affect the community. Id love for them to list the Ten bests reason Oswego is the best, because last I knew. Oswego landed number one on worst places to live. To lie blatantly, say the folks here do not share links. Lol, you simply do not pay attention. This wall's purpose it built to allow the community, to interact on issues they feel matter and they can express political opinion. It's called checks and balances. Political discussions and court cases that are going on in your community. I do not believe you comprehend the concept of that.

Re: Upcoming Presidential Election
I figured I would throw in my two cents in this matter. As I see it Hillary will be more of the status quo....on STEROIDS...enough said about her! Like many others I keep up with the news. I also find Trump to be arrogant,vile,even disgusting.What has troubled me recently about him transcends all we have heard on the news;it's much more ominous than that! Trump has tapped into the dark side of mankind.He represents and promotes fear,hate,racism,ignorance and selfishness.His followers do so blindly,compulsively as the rats followed the pied piper.Now of course we are human beings supposedly more intelligent than rats,but none the less gullible at times.I thought to myself that an analogy relating our next President to a child's story didn't equate,or carry enough weight concerning the topic.Sad to say something did,Trump and his followers reminded me almost EXACTLY of a time in history when a leader had nearly all the same qualities as Trump.Misguided hate...CHECK, racism and blind hatred for all not like themselves...CHECK,ignorance and intolerance except for their own agenda...CHECK.To sum this up I will quote Ken Burns,who has produced many historically accurate documentaries that Trump and his followers are " HITLERESQUE" I agree! God help us all!

If I were you bunch of malcontents, I'd be plenty worried about those texts Pieliar (Pietroski), said he couldn't find, lost,or did something to. See below, it says," copies of all papers and transcripts of stenographic or audio tape minutes, if any, of the proceedings upon which the appeal is based." That means those texts have to reappear, be found, the ones Jenn Wescott, sent to Rich Murtaugh, regarding the "van" and Roger Breckenridge, the day she went to the Sheriff's Department, to be coddled by Pieliar.

In the interview with Pietroski, Wescott read at least one of her texts with Murtaugh, but stopped at one point and told Pietroski he was going to see them anyway because he was taking her phone.

In the hearing last year, Peebles told the judge she still had not received the texts between Wescott and Murtaugh.

"He takes the phone, and I get all the other text messages and for some reason those aren't included, and I thought they were very significant," she said in the hearing.

Oakes responded at the hearing that he'd looked through the sheriff's records over the weekend but did not find the texts.

"I went through, I don't see that they're there," he told King. "I asked Investigator Pietroski if we have screen shots of everything else, why not that?

"Yes," King responded. "That seems a little odd."

The Appellate Division is not Oswego County, Jenn, no one can protect you there. Oakes has no pull, the Appellate Judges don't care about trying to make you happy, also Judge King, be very afraid! Remember what the judge said? ""There are questions of law or fact which ought to be reviewed by this court," Gerald Whalen, the presiding judge of the court, wrote in a short order. "Permission to appeal is hereby granted."" That means the law was not followed.

New Winter Parking Policy

The new winter parking policy is not Mayor Barlow's; it is Councilor Emmons' brainchild. Apparently I live in a ward that doesn't have any homes without parking because I spoke with my councilor and not a single person contacted him to allow on-street parking. According to him, there were a couple people in one particular ward who were pushing for on-street parking. Those people were very vocal and brought many other people to council meetings to give the appearance there was a lot of support for a new policy.

From the beginning Mayor Barlow has been for the complete parking ban to allow for street cleaning and other snow removal that cannot occur when people are parked on the streets. Instead of supporting the Mayor, the council rolled over for a couple very wealthy people and created a terrible policy that does nothing more than create a headache for the DPW, police department, fire department and most importantly, neighbors who will now have to deal with snow being piled up around these created parking spots.

Why is the council catering to a handful of individuals when the city overwhelmingly supports the full parking ban? I understand it is a difficult situation, but why didn't Mayor Barlow VETO this cockamamie plan and stick to his guns? The city would have been behind him and he could have shown the council that he isn't going to tolerate stupid policy decisions that are based on nothing more than the crazy scheme of a failed councilor, desperately trying to attach his name to something.

I guess we can add this to the list of issues Councilor Emmons has botched. Several months ago I remember reading on the front page of the paper that he was taking a stand on giving away city services because of the dire financial situation the city was in. I was in favor of this hard-line approach until I just heard he pushed the other councilors to approve a temporary ice skating rink for one day at the tune of over $5,000! How is that fiscally responsible? How do you go from denying city services to spending money like it's water. Speaking of water, how can you justify spending such a huge amount on a temporary ice skating rink when I am paying over a thousand dollars a year for water/sewer and my brother who lives in Scriba is paying about one hundred dollars a year for city water? Councilor Emmons has a clear disregard for the will of the taxpayers and his priorities are certainly skewed. Didn't he run on the republican/conservative lines? How the hell do you call yourself a conservative and push ridiculous spending like this?

I have to give my councilor credit for speaking out against this waste of money but it was for nothing, because in the end he voted with the other councilors to support the rink. I wish he had stood his ground but it seems like none of these councilors have the balls to stick to a position and see it through.

Re: Upcoming Presidential Election
I figured I would throw in my two cents in this matter. As I see it Hillary will be more of the status quo....on STEROIDS...enough said about her! Like many others I keep up with the news. I also find Trump to be arrogant,vile,even disgusting.What has troubled me recently about him transcends all we have heard on the news;it's much more ominous than that! Trump has tapped into the dark side of mankind.He represents and promotes fear,hate,racism,ignorance and selfishness.His followers do so blindly,compulsively as the rats followed the pied piper.Now of course we are human beings supposedly more intelligent than rats,but none the less gullible at times.I thought to myself that an analogy relating our next President to a child's story didn't equate,or carry enough weight concerning the topic.Sad to say something did,Trump and his followers reminded me almost EXACTLY of a time in history when a leader had nearly all the same qualities as Trump.Misguided hate...CHECK, racism and blind hatred for all not like themselves...CHECK,ignorance and intolerance except for their own agenda...CHECK.To sum this up I will quote Ken Burns,who has produced many historically accurate documentaries that Trump and his followers are " HITLERESQUE" I agree! God help us all!

Can someone confirm
Roger is listed as in custody October 3, @12am, and a friend there at OCJ says he is there. But does not know why. Sheriff's say his last arrest date was May 2016. But two sites say other wise. That his last arrest was several weeks ago. Vineyard also had Breckenridge in custody at OCJ, can anyone confirm this?

You say that like I am supposed to care about your opinion. I served my time in 5th grade at St. Mary’s prison in Fulton. You have nothing to compare to that.

People like you come out of the woodwork every election. Anyone who is not in locked step with you or your candidate is automatically the enemy and the enemy of your candidate is always the enemy of our country. These days with ISIS the Taliban and Putin there are more than enough enemies to go around but they are not the ones we should worry about because it will be some demagogue like Trump and mindless drones like you who will bring this country down from within.

You got me on voting. I have only been going to the polls for 47 years. in 1969 I registered for the first time and voted absentee from Viet Nam. In 1972 I voted for George Wallace as a write-in. I have also voted for libertarians, Socialist Workers and a good number of Disney characters but I have never been so feeble minded that I would fall for the kind of bullshit and lies that spew from the mouth of that ASSHOLE / SEXUAL PREDATOR Donald Trump. Take away his money and his celebrity and that bald-headed, short-fingered duffass could not get laid in a whorehouse.

I could not give a flying fu** on a rolling donut what Harry Truman’s body guards had to say. It has nuttin ta do with the price of tomadas.

Gregory Oakes; Moe Todd Stooge?
Did you set that interview up with Heidi's boyfriend, Brett Law and his lawyer, yet Gregory Oakes?

He said he wanted his lawyer present before he said more about the, previously undisclosed, big guy cocaine dealer, Heidi was scared of.

We know you called him to refute Missy Adams and Rhonda Burr's statements to Lisa Peebles. Rhonda said Heidi wanted to quit being a CI, weeks before she disappeared and was scared of the, "big guy" Coke dealer. Brett confirmed the last part.

Why are you avoiding Brett Law now Mr Oakes? Surely it's because Brett could confirm or refute if Heidi was an active CI, right before she was abducted.

Can you grant Brett immunity, as he seems ready and willing to tell the rest of the story? Obviously your at least unsure, if you avoid this potential opportunity to refute the continuously active CI status of Heidi, her friend swears to.

DJ Brian Mensch, testified that Deputy Chris Van Patten in 93/94, at Champs Corners, talked about his young female CI working in New Haven on a big drug case. Mensch testified to buying drugs from Steen and knowing Steen for 20 years. Mensch lived on Rice Road. Seems to corroborate Rhonda Burr's statement, no? Do stories about the card dropping, loose lipped, Van Patten make you at least curious?

Did you look into Martha Sturtz's (Heidi's aunt) admissions that OCSD recruited Heidi to be a CI, to avoid legal trouble, contrary to the official trial story that she naively volunteered but was unusable? Martha says we lied (Heidi's family) and kept it covered, on tape. Not enough for you to dig a little more Gregory?

Makes a mockery of your 2014 roadside speech, to John O'Brien, saying you'd move to vacate his conviction, if new evidence emerges of his innocence. You didn't say you'd stall any collection of that evidence though.

You are supposed to be the top elected law official, for ALL the people, with special power to investigate and enforce the law, for everyone. You disingenuously urge Gary Thibodeau to confess instead, without following up on your own inquiries.

"My first and foremost concern is always doing justice. " Greg Oakes 2014. It's secondary at best Gregory.

Gregory, you look more like a gutless stooge as every day goes by.

Ironic that Sheriff Todd likes to be called "Moe", as you affectionately refer to him.

Which one are you, Curly, Larry? Or are you Shemp, the one they brought back later?

Jul 31, 2014......

........ Oakes, "First as a prosecutor, we owe it to Gary Thibodeau, if he's innocent of these crimes. If I have evidence that he's innocent of these crimes, John, I would personally move to vacate his conviction.

It's a bigger concern. My first and foremost concern is always doing justice. "






Help Protect Great Lakes Waters on Drug Take Back Day October 22
Buffalo, NY. New York Sea Grant is reminding Great Lakes residents that October 22, 2016, is a National Prescription Drug Take Back Day for dropping off unused medicines at collection sites statewide. The goal is to keep the pharmaceuticals out of the freshwater Great Lakes system that provides drinking water to 42 million people in the United States and Canada.

‘The simple act of dropping off your unused prescription drugs at a nearby collection point helps reduce the impact of such substances as antibiotics, hormones, contraceptives, antidepressants, cosmetics, and vitamins on the aquatic environment and on human health,’ says New York Sea Grant Coastal Education Specialist Helen Domske.

More than 350 tons of prescription drugs were dropped off at more than 8,000 sites across the U.S. on the Fall 2015 collection day.

To locate an authorized National Prescription Drug Take Back collection for the October 22, 2016 collection, visit the U.S. DEA National Take Back Day Initiative website at https://www.deadiversion.usdoj.gov/drug_disposal/takeback/. Collection hours are 10 am to 2 pm.

Domske is a 2016 Western New York Distinguished Scientist and author of the Undo the Environmental Chemical Brew: Keep Unwanted Medications and Chemicals Out of the Great Lakes guide with tips on how citizens can keep unwanted pharmaceuticals and personal care products out of Great Lakes waters. Find more information online at www.nyseagrant.org/unwantedmeds.

Research by New York Sea Grant and other science organizations has tracked the feminization of fish populations downstream from wastewater treatment plants to estrogen and its components found in prescription drugs.

A New York Sea Grant-funded, two-year research project that began in February 2016 is examining the effectiveness of advanced water treatment options, environmental levels and potential effects of pharmaceuticals in New York waters. Stony Brook University research Anne McElroy noted earlier this year, ‘The number of pharmaceutically-active ingredients (API) and their known or suspected active metabolites in coastal waters is in the hundreds and continues to increase. Data collected from our project will help to fill important data gaps and enhance knowledge about sewage-derived APIs and their effects on fish behavior and how well advanced wastewater treatment technologies reduce API discharges and mitigate these effects.’

The biannual National Prescription Drug Take Back Days are an initiative of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency in cooperation with law enforcement agencies nationwide.

New York Sea Grant, a cooperative program of Cornell University and the State University of New York, is one of 33 university-based programs under the National Sea Grant College Program of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Through its statewide network of integrated services, NYSG has been promoting coastal vitality, environmental sustainability, and citizen awareness about the State’s marine and Great Lakes resources since 1971. For updates on New York Sea Grant activities, www.nyseagrant.org has RSS, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube links.

Oswego is getting angry
Mr. Mayor, you should really take a step back and ask yourself..."who the f*** do I think I am?" No parking in the street in the winter months was a big deal for you. Remember? It was all about clearing the streets. Remember, plows having difficulties, blah, blah. But now, as long as you pay, you can park...hand picked I'm guessing, based on the streets you are allowing all night parking. East and West 1st and 2nd streets. Well, isn't that nice of you to give all night parking to the patrons and tenants of Pauldine and Broadwell. Because, who else is it helping? Pauline's tenants can now park in front instead of having to walk around from the back parking lot, and Steamers can now get their customers to stay to last call, because there isn't enough parking for the hotels. That was nice of you Mayor and clowns. Need to make that payroll that keeps growing and growing. This city's payroll is becoming astronomical! Wait till the next budget. People are not happy. Farewell Oswego.
The painted sidewalk...the sidewalk got painted instead of the roadway. They screwed up! Go figure. They have painted a couple coats of paint to resemble the color of concrete. They did a crappy job of it, as you can still see green in crevices. Apparently, the painter forgot his paint brush. What's funny is, if you look closely at the curb, it is all broke apart. The colorful markings in the road, that will disappear when the snow hits, is more important than fixing the curb.

ELECTION 2016 - The Differences
This is my summary of the 2 main differences between the 2016 Presidential candidates. I've spent endless hours following intently what may well become known in the history books as "The Death of the Republican Party / The Election Debacle of 2016"
Trump is rapidly becoming the spoiler in his own election. If it were his scheme to hand Clinton the keys to the White House then I applaud his master plan. It was pure genius. If it's not true his enormous ego may still cause him to claim this as a fact. Whether it was his plan or not he'll be hungry for that "winning" satisfaction and what better way to get that ego boost than to steal all the post-election publicity? Anything to inflate his image and generate brand recognition is all good PR.
Here are the two major differences between the candidates that sort of jumped right out at me.
1 Hillary has one, Trump is one.
2 What Hillary doesn't have is bigger than Trump's

Sure most guys said something like Trump sometime in their lives.

Usually it was when they were young and dumb but when you get to your late 60s and you are still in that mindset you are seriously screwed up.




Lets say we chalk it up to “locker-room banter”. How do you explain his walking into the dressing rooms of young women and teenage girls (Miss USA and Miss Teen USA pageants) knowing he would catch them in some stage of undress. This bastard is even sicker than Bill Clinton. He is right up there with John Gosek.

When I first heard that video tape I thought if he is talking like that then he has been doing a lot worse that we do not know about. Sure as sh!t contestants are now starting to come forward and tell how he grabbed their a$$es and kissed them on the lips.


The way he talks about his daughter I would not be surprised to hear he was watching her through the keyholes.

Here are a few predictions. Lets see how many come true.

Trump’s TV career is over. No sponsor or network will have him.

He will never release his income tax statements.

What credit he has left will dry up. Those people he has outstanding loans with will demand payment and no excuses.

Women he has abused or misused will start coming out just like they did with Bill Cosby and the lawsuits will follow.

His wife will divorce him for violating their prenuptial agreement and she will win.

He will re marry but within three years she will also divorce him when she finds out he has not got all the money he claimed he had.

Mike Pence’s political career will end along with Trumps and anyone else foolish enough to stay with him to November 8th.









Today's  Quote  October 12/2016

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”
Eleanor Roosevelt

It amazes me how stupid these Trump followers are. The thinking level of fifth graders.
They have no idea what a disaster it would be to have this profane, tabloid mentality nut in the White House.
It would probably end up like that other unhinged child-monster in North Korea who has a literal, working gulag with thousands of prisoners in it. Trump, in light of his pathetic display at the last debate, indicated he would have Hillary arrested, and he would do the same to anyone who threatened him if he were elected. His low, base brain mentality followers are foaming at the mouth right now and this is just as scary as he is.
How disgraceful that the entire GOP, as evil as they are, just imploded and allowed for this to happen, serves them right. They are all criminals, and so are most of the Democrats I have to say. This while thing is a F...ing mess.
The most incredible and yet sad elements about all of this is that Trump, in the beginning, being basically a Washington outsider who, we thought, could not be bought, like the rest of them, had it all. If he would have acted presidential and kept calm and classy, he would have swept this entire election, hands down. But no, the fact the he can't keep his big, arrogant mouth shut, may have very well cost him the election. Anyone who claims to be a level headed thinking person must realize that he is not capable to be President. Come on.
His mistakes should make everyone who thinks they are for him, reconsider. He is a loose cannon who's ego is beyond the stratosphere. He will not take advice from anyone and this is the most dangerous thing, for everyone's sake. Flying off the handle at the smallest provocation is not what demonstrates the ability to lead a globally involved power like the great country of America.

No crying
To; no crying... I agree. Gary appealed his case years ago and the supreme court ruled that with holding Heidi diary wasn't enough to over turn the conviction. These are the reasons the scotus only takes 80 cases a year out of ten thousand. Number four on the list. Hits Gary's case. King did not uphold that supreme court ruling. When mounds of new evidence surfaced, I'm certain it was enough to issue a new trial. Based on the scotus opinion in the prior appeal. They should start crying. The supreme court is not a court system you can lie to. Jennifer best grab the tissues. Her ass, has had several chances and open doors to tell the direct truth....that will not happen, until the scotus issues a probe in to the department's as they have in many exonorated cases. It's coming. Not everyone believes the bullshit coming from the sheriff's and DA office. I'm certain they never would have taken Gary's case, they already told Gary years ago. The diary wasn't enough. I wonder if Oakes three thousand documentation dump was now enough. Don't fool yourselves suspects. Not all people are corrupt pos, that believe your lies. So yes, no crying you deserve it. You not only took a young women's life. You destroyed and incarcerated a completely innocent human being. If anyone deserves to cry. It'll be Gary Thibodeau and his family crying tears of joy. When supreme rules in Gary's favor. They only hear the ones they deem top priority. I wouldn't be so cocky and sure. Your lies will go much further. The results are now out of Greg Oakes control or the little goons at the dept. Their and yours now lie in the balance of higher authority and power. Just as you did to Gary Thibodeau. Oakes should have told you, that a man was released for one piece of paper. A paper with a list of suspects. He was exonorated and a deep probe was driven straight up the department's ass. It's coming Oswego bend over. But no crying.

Gary Thibodeau......The Death of Common Sense

We've read a lot about what we think is going on with this case. Even one person telling of how the LE was selling, using and protecting coke users.


I don't think there is any doubt about it. JW gave them some good info but they didn't use it. "I won't rest until this case is solved"...attitude of a certain OCSD member.


I really believe we are getting closer to the explosion of what really happened. As I said before how could Stinson who was there at 7:41-7:55 NOT SEE THE CRIME AS IT HAPPENED. Because it happened after RT left the store and someone who really did it WAS NOT SEEN. Confused? Not really if you just use common sense.


Even Mrs. Fabin said the van behind her in Mexico was light blue and then changed her mind and said it was RT's van. Another change of van story.


When one jury member said "they must have had something to get this far"...ok,, but did they show it, prove it beyond a reasonable doubt? They still don't have anything on the bros.



7:42 RT buys cigarettes, leaves and no one that was there saw him kidnap HA. One minute later HA is gone?


Is this an illusion? One minute and Stinson didn't see anything?


If GT gets a new trial he will win it...no evidence. Truth will come out or at least lead to a suspicion of a cover up that even a child can see.




...and I can honestly tell you that if I was there and saw a kidnapping, I would try to stop it if it meant my life.

Another Tattoo shop

I noticed that there is a new tattoo shop on West First Street.   It is a sad commentary on the city of Oswego that these are the kind of businesses we support.  It would have been a great spot for an ice cream parlor or other family friendly business.  What kind of people do you think our downtown going to attract when we have so many bars, tattoo parlors and the like.

Murtagh posted across Syracuse news that," he towed a van for Breckenridge off Valley Road in Fernwood, N.Y.," don't too, many coincidences equal guilty?

Theories are typically truths. I was also informed that vanpatten was the one that ordered the boys to take Heidi. Your post hit me hard. You are the first to post what I felt was the truth. Vanpatten deserves a set of cuffs. Sick county. Sick cops, sick and demented DA to support a pathetic conviction of an innocent man. All to save face for some corrupt criminal cops and to save integrity for the sheriff's whom clearly have none.

I see someone posted a document about Heidi with Dean Goodsell's signature. Funny how he was an investigator on this case. He has a son who lives in Fernwood less than a mile from him and his son has NOTHING to do with him.

REASON: His father being a sheriff would stop him and take his money and drugs from him for his own use. His uncle Allen did the same. When Dean was Pulaski's Police Chief, he was removed from that position due to someone having some "tapes" of his threats on wanting their drugs or he'd have the children in the household removed. Hush Hush was it all.
Van Patten, both Goodsell's, Curtis and a few others along with Moe know a few things not being told. Drugs, drugs, and more drugs. The Fernwood Feedmill was a dropping point for many locals. The younger generation of Fernwood feared the Goodsell's and were prayed upon.

There are rumors that at one time the "VAN" in question was parked at the Fernwood Feedmill on Valley Road just down the road from Dean & Allen's house. The now owner has a picture of an abandoned van that sat there but is worried about what to do with it.

Questions And Theories
How about a little reality. Heidi might have been a mateure bright kid but when it came to men she was young and dumb. So when VanPatten wanted to take it to the next level she fell for it. The problem was she thought he was serious. When he wanted to break it off she threatened to tell all. That is when he dropped her ID card. It was meant to be a warning but Duel found it and turned it in never telling Heidi.

Hell back then half the OCSD was either selling using or protecting the ones that were. Bohrer Steen and Breckenridge hung out at the same bars the deputies did. How hard do you think it was to let them know she was an informant and then make up a story about how she was ratting them out. Like one of them said Thoebedou stopping for a pack of cigs right after they grabbed her was just icing on the cake.

People want to know why no one wants to get to the truth. The truth is no secret the problem is keeping it from getting out.

That does not sound too far out there but someone had to tell them she would be working that day. She was taking someone else’s shift. Did anyone besides me wonder if maybe they took the wrong person.


If you believe the account of the jailhouse snitch then Heidi would have had to leave voluntarily and be gone a minimum of 45 mins. with no one coming into the empty store.


I could be wrong but I also thought I read that when the investigator who did the fingerprinting finally arrived he could not dust the money in the till because someone let one of the owners remove it from the crime scene and take it to the bank. Lets just guess there was a hundred in change to start the day and then $25 to $50 in sales. Why was it so important to get this chump change away from the crime scene and to a bank?


Dodd must have made sure the jury was stacked with dummies.

 Rental properties Inspections Done By The OFD

 Nice job! I guess wood,sheetrock, concrete, copper pipes, roof shingles and lack of insulation in walls and attics and lack of proper venting has all of a sudden gone bad  since the OFD stopped  time sheet  padding and  so called “ construction training “ ! And it is nice to see that some landlords get away with NOT paving their driveways, or rely on “good “ people to cut there grass,clean there sidewalks in the winter time!

    How come  that the “OFD”  is good at timesheets , but (was)bad at not seeing crap? I guess it did take eight of them to put in a light bulb !

I still have not figured out who is suppose to bow  in grace, the firepersonal  to a taxpayer or the taxpayer to a firepersonal, and of course, a special bow to the  out going fire chief !

RE: Oswego tenants band together against landlord

Why did the mayor wait until now to crack down on the slumlords. This is his third year in city government. Could it be its because he was dating Duggie’s daughter. Waterbury is just the kind of landlord those scumbag students deserve. Wait until they get into small claims court and find out the judge and Waterbury are pals.

The fees won't do any good if the City doesn't get out and inspect every rental unit and hold the landlords accountable.  The City is as much to blame as Waterbury or any other greedy landlord for allowing this to go on all these years. Check out the assessments on some of these properties.  Low taxes and mighty big incomes!

Who made a noise

In David Stinson's statement, given on 4-8-1994 @ 3:56 pm, he says: "This all occurred in about 1-2 minutes. I waited a few minutes for the clerk. I remember hearing something in the back room to the left. This sound reassured me that someone was there and I waited patiently for the clerk."




To the left? By the back door, the one not everyone knew about? The one the "family" used? Look at this picture closely, see the plywood covering up the old back door, to the left. Who was back there?


                                                                                                                                                 September 29/16


If the back room looked anything like what can be seen outside the back door he probably heard rats.

Rental Fee increase
o, an increase in rental permit fees will...Mayor Billy Barlow said his proposal will help hold “landlords accountable and pressure them into maintaining their property and treating their tenants fairly.” What a bunch of bullshit. Does anyone really listen to what is being said. What this increase will do is increase rents! Section 8 will be paying more "rent." Where does that come from? Why...the taxpayer of course. You are seeing a lot of empty homes, now you're going to see many empty apt buildings. It affects the middle class, and these people will also leave if the rents go higher. The only thing this helps is Oswego's payroll. The city's payroll keeps getting larger. The mayor needs to find ways to pay for it.
“I’m delighted with the Common Council’s approval of the fee increase and our new code enforcement strategy as now we can begin holding landlords more accountable, begin to reclaim our neighborhoods and also stand up for tenants right,” the mayor said. “We are being strategic and extremely aggressive in making sure landlords are responsive to the concerns of their tenants and ensuring the properties they own do not detract from the value of our neighborhoods.” How??? How is this increase doing any of what is said? It won't have any effect! Pretty soon, you won't be able to pound in a nail with a hammer on your own house, because there will be a fee to pay. What could of worked, and should be done councilors, is to get off your lazy asses and take control of your neighborhoods!!! You are councilors for a reason. But, I'm guessing your reasons have nothing to do with your ward! Fix your wards! Do f-ing something. Take, take, take, and you're wondering why people are leaving. Get a fu*king clue.

High Gas Prices in Oswego!
Can anyone explain why Oswego has the highest gas prices around? I always try to make it a point to buy my gas outside of Oswego whenever it is possible. How come Sunoco is exactly .20 cents more in Oswego then Sunoco is in Syracuse? I was in Oneida the other day and filled my tank at 188.9 a gallon, the next morning I drove past Sunoco on west First and Utica St. and gas was 225.9. OMG that's .37 cents a gallon more, what is up with that? I have even filled up on the NYS thruway before because it was a lot cheaper than Oswego's prices! Who is it anyway that sets these high prices in Oswego for gas compared to areas South and Southeast of here? High gas prices, High Taxes, High Water/Sewer Bills, High Rent, what makes people want to stay here? We are getting ripped off on everything including the weekly increases in food prices. Is everyone out to get rich off the working man that is struggling to raise a family here! All I can say is WAKE UP OSWEGO BEFORE IT'S TO LATE!

West Side Elites
I was surprised to hear of how "successful" this year's Porchfest was at bringing the community together. I believe the individuals who run Porchfest are the same individuals who run the ORA. My wife and I live outside of the "Franklin Square" and "Montcalm Park" neighborhoods - not far out mind you. We requested to have performers on our porch and our neighbors requested the same. We were told no by the organizers. We were told we were outside of the targeted area, which happens to be concentrated with higher income residents, which unfortunately we are not. How is Porchfest successful when it is just a bunch of wealthy people showing off their homes and excluding neighbors and neighborhoods who aren't quite as wealthy? The organizers of this event need to realize that to effectively bring the community together you need to include a cross section of the community and not just the upper echelons. All this does is increase the divide between the different socioeconomic classes in our community and the small amount of "success" you think you achieved is completed negated by the hard feelings you create to average residents like me and my wife. Oswego at its core is still working class. You should try to be sensitive to that and not continue to shut us out as if we're second class citizens.

Thibodeau Appeal
After reading Lisa Peebles filing. Many are disgusted with the acting officials who were involved. This is a very degrading and disgusting abuse of power. They still continue to fight it. There's nothing more that needs to be said. But the bad guys are the political power running loose in Oswego. The filings heart breaking and my heart goes out to both the Allen family and the Thibodeau family. One family fights for truth, the other one fights to uphold a lie. I feel sorry for the Allen's. They have been fooled. It's easier to convince someone they've been fooled than for them to accept the fact they have. How they stand by this, I have no idea. They are not helping to bring the truth to light but to keep that light hidden. Very sad. Very heart breaking a teen girl died and it seems very few care. What's worse is we the people allowed this case to get to where it's at. Maybe soon, the supreme court will stop this group of idiots that seem to run Oswego by an iron rod, maybe that iron rod will get shoved straight up their ass. Lisa didn't skip a beat and nailed every person involved. Including Purdy who had seemed to have committed perjury. Which one of these idiots haven't committed perjury and in the end how many will be charged with being accessories to murder. If Gods willing. It'll be all of them. Including you Vanpatten, and also your side kick Bobby wheeler. I wonder if you two are the two investigators listed in Bohrer notes as investigator shit head and investigator chicken shit.

“We were making the future, he said, and hardly any of us troubled to think what future we were making.

And here it is!”

H. G. Wells

I read what you did, and we all know who you are!
I read what you did, and we all know who you are! Donald Dodd, Reuel Todd, Greg Oakes, Mark Moody, Daniel King, and Donald Todd

As a citizen of this county, you all work for me, not each other. This is too inform you that I am calling you out, for the truth !
I have read all of the information you filed. There is no glaring evidence against Gary Thibodeau, because if there was, you would have had to file it. Further witheld evidence
would constitute another Brady Violation. I pondered today what in the world the former jurors were told in Gary's trial by you, Donald Dodd. Your timeline is preposterous. It is not even worth mentioning. Reuel Todd, please tell me what led you to the Thibodeau brothers? I cannot find any supporting documentation that sends the case towards them. A criminal never calls and identifies themselves, as being at the scene of the crime. Who is Borrelli, and why were you going so far as to talk about him being in a photo line up for the clerks at the D&W 4-16-1994, but on 4-14-1994, Borrelli was given "walking papers" yesterday. That would have made it 4-13-1994. On 4-15-94, you say:" Is it time to do a photo line up on Borrelli?" So you gave Borrelli "walking papers", I believe that means you let him go, on 4-13-94, but on 4-15-94 and again on 4-16-94, you were going to have the clerks at the D&W look at his picture? But after 4-16-94, Borrelli is never mentioned again.

On 4-14-94, the lead sheet says, "Danny Barney, has come into view as a probably suspect". On 4-15-94, the lead sheet says: Wheeler interviewed Dan Barney yesterday,
at length. Believes Barney is not a suspect." Where are the notes from the interview with Dan Barney? 4-15-94, it says, "late yesterday, Gary Thibodeau, entered the picture as a possible suspect. This developes from a lead that came in early on." Where is the lead, Moe? I can't find any documentation of a lead about Gary, being a suspect. Who told you Gary had a crush on Heidi? Or that Gary was ever coming on to Heidi? The only documentation about anyone coming onto Heidi, is in her diary, about her boss, Matt Duell, not Gary.

The case against Gary Thibodeau, regarding Heidi Allen's abduction, is all like the above mentioned fairy tales. This person is a suspect, no, we let him go. Hey, this person might have done it, no, we talked to him and he said he didn't do it. So you decided amongst yourselves, to pin it on a person and his brother, that you had no evidence against, only a citizen that was trying to help you.

So I say that the Appellate Division will get the public the answers we have been seeking for 22 years. Dumb of us to ever believe that our District Attorney's Office, or
Sheriff's Department, were honest or truthful. All you were looking for was someone to blame it on, to puff yourselves up, but I'm sure soon, it will be deflated, like yesterday's
birthday balloons. The public doesn't believe you, trust you, or support corrupt officials.

Oakes you are a bold faced liar anyone with a computer and access to this blog can see how much of a liar you are. In 1994/95 arrest and conviction of Gary Thibodeau. Fahey repeatedly requested the CI file, he was told Allen wasnt an informant. He then requested a dismissal due to with holding of evidence. The old news reports do not support Oakes bull shit lies. Fahey over and over called Dodd, out on this CI status and requested her entire CI file. Again they played the Allen wasnt a CI. http://heidiallenarticles.blogspot.com/?m=1 take the time to study openly on your own. The DA office are hubitual liars and so are the Sheriffs. Request a state police if you need an officer. The lies are sickening. The Sheriff dept. Should be shut down.

Oswego County Land Bank ...Shane Broadwell WTF
Seems Shane Broadwell (make believe legislator) wants to be involved in purchasing, with taxpayer's money, run down properties in the City of Oswego for the Land Bank, and has been pushing hard to get the county to buy very specific ones. There are a lot of run down
properties in the city, but his continued interest in certainproperties makes me wonder what is in it for him. This weasel tries to
make it look like he is doing it for the benefit of the city, but there is more to the question now that Pathfinder is involved, just
like they are involved in the Renaissance Neighborhood Project. It is all about loaning money at high interest rates. Broadwell has his
finger in the pie and is trying to make it look like it he is only interested in the beautification of the city. If that were the case,
isn't about time he filled in that embarrassing hole on East First and Utica St, take down the sign and give up the shame. It has been at least 10 years that the hole has been there and any visitors to the city have to see that as they enter Oswego on 481.
The Broaswell's have been ripping off this city for years, and now Shane is into ripping it off even more. It is time the corporate
welfare ends, along with the corruption that is being disguised as a benefit to the city. It is also time to vote this weasel out of

Due to the past and present DA human life does not matter. What matters is covering up the cover up and multitude of lies. I ask myself if maybe Oakes thought Gary's appeals would be granted. If so, maybe he thought he'd simply let the system play out. Wash his hands of it. The issue is, his hands are now a part of those lies. They continue to churn. The sickest lie Oakes is following. Is the fact Gary was involved. When in 1994, the news reports are very clear. The Thibodeaus nor the van matched descriptions given. Bivens, he has a huge surprise in store for Oakes and lying Donald. With one gesture. He will destroy the idea it was ever a Thibodeau. Cause the Thibodeaus are not who he points to when given photos. Oakes, must not have followed up with a proper investogation, Bivens has ID another man, maybe the sheriff's should try not to cover up their cover up, because I'm supreme court or a new trial, their own witnesses are destroying them. The entire truth on Bivens has yet to surface. But in time it will.

Gary Thibodeau...The death of common sense
Are the prosecution witnesses really witnesses as to what they saw or are they just a link to a prosecution procedure that convicted an innocent man.

Witnesses provide information to help the prosecutor convince a jury that a person is guilty as charged.

- Dave Stinson: was there from 7:41 - 7:45, waved down a deputy but did not tell him that he saw a kidnapping.
- Richard was there and left at 7:42 and was seen by Stinson (at least he had to be) but not seen kidnapping HA.
- Stinson walked in after 7:42 and no Heidi. Now how could Richard have done this in one minute, with Stinson being there but did not see anything. He also never mentioned that he saw anyone let alone Gary.
- Mr. Swenkowski said he watched Richard leave the store and then left. He was there at 7:41 also.
- Swenkowski also saod he saw one person.
- Two people there at the time of the crime and saw nothing.
- Bivens said he saw two husky men and a women but NO TIME WAS MENTIONED IN THE DA's STATEMENT OF FACTS.
- So this makes a question of when Bivens was there. Had to be after and close to 7:42 according to the OCSD as that is when Richard bought cigs and left.
- How could Bivens see the crime and Swenkowski and Stinson didn't although they had to be there at the same time because Stinson walked in at 7:41 and no Heidi.
- Bivens stated that he did not remember telling a deputy later that he had driven by at 8-8:30. He saw the crime, then Stinson has to be mistaken about HA not being in the store. Which could happen but he flagged down Deputy Curtis and he also checked for Heidi...not found.
- Stinson said he saw two husky men with a girl in the parking lot. He said there wasn't anyone or cars in the lot.
Wasn't Stinson and Swenkowski there per their statements. Swenkowski also said the deputies tried to convince him that his time was off but he stood his ground on the time he gave.
- I personally don't believe Bivens was even there..(just my opinion). His time is way off and no time was recorded when he first gave his statement according to the DA's Facts...no time given with his statement. Why not?
- Then we have Gary going to a MA prison and snitches give stories that we now know are not true.
- Bottom line: two witnesses there at the time of the crime but did not see Richard taking Heidi. Bivens saying he saw two husky men taking her (but no time was given by him) but Swenkowski and Stinson were there and did
not see anything.
To the DA involved in this. You sir have NO WITNESSES AT ALL! Maybe a story teller but if at least you should have had three witnesses. Bivens could not have seen a crime between 8-8:30 because the OCSD was there at that time.

I submit to you that you set up a frame of Richard and Gary Thibodeau (and a bad one that is full of holes) got bad info from snitches who I think lied and their statement proves it.

So I am going to ask in this paper right now to Donald Dodd to please answer my question: How did three people there at the time of the crime and two didn't see anything and one who didn't even know or did not want to tell what time he was there, which had to be around 7:41-7:42 did see the crime?

If I were you, I would be afraid, very afraid of a federal Investigation. If no investigation happens if Gary wins his appeal, call your state representative, senator and anyone else that would help.

The book is largely based on secondhand information from the Sheriff’s Department, the District Attorney’s office and family members. The Sheriffs lied, the D.A. lied and the family lied so that basically makes the book fiction.

Show Up Time
So if a OFD is called in, but sent home with in one hour, that person gets five hours of time and a half ( 7.5 of straight time ) . Do these people get called in , maybe four times with in a 24 hour period ? So maybe , one of these hereo’s could collect twenty hours of time and a half ! That comes down to ¾ ( or 7.5 % of a full paycheck Per Day ) .

20 hours per shift x $ 125.00 per hour = $ 2,500.00 per man ! And if they call in four men x $ 2,500.00 = $ 10,000.00 per shift ( 24 hour ) . So you could be spending $ 70,000.00 per week in show up time ! Which, in the worse case world ,would be $ 70,000.00 x 52 weeks = $ 3,640,000.00 a year, which, at this time, I do not think that the Famous OFD Ambl. Corp. could recoup! The chief eithers understands how to protect the membership , and does not care about the taxpayers, or is really bad at math ( checks and balances ). Maybe big brother can do some 2nd and 3rd mathbook coin sckills!

In order to have cellmates they would have to be convicted of something bigger than a misdemeanor.

The Heidi controversy
I was under the direct impression. Heidi switched her schedule with Sally Brooks. Who was suppose to be working at the Fish on in port Ontario. Either way. There are conflicting stories from Heidi family and the DA office. If she was not scheduled the only ones who would be aware of this switch. Are her family, Brett and DUELLS, in which case Ms. Duell file seems to have been tampered with. Very convenient. No one else would ever have known. Unless Heidi told someone. I very much likely doubt that was her topic of discussion.

It's common sense

Why would Donald Dodd or Todd know more. Hmmm, maybe because they supposedly investigated and prosecuted this case. No matter what you post. The fact is. They should have known. Both her sister and their dept. All have different times, ones clearly lying. I'll bet it is not Lisa Buske, but the DA office that was said in 1994 to be out of touch with the public and their mistakes cost human lives. They were also in trouble back then for many different reasons. From lying, to prosecutorial misconduct. If you read the old news. You'd be well aware of their tricks. I highly doubt her sister is bull shitting anyone in her book. But I do not doubt that the DA office did a ton. Many people do not agree with your questions as to how could Dodd or Todd know. Well in order to prosecute this case you'd think they should have. Ridiculous remarks.

“Where large sums of money are concerned, it is advisable to trust nobody.”
Agatha Christie

Four More Misdemeanor Plea Bargains For Oaks







Heidi often offered to work on the holidays.
Regarding Easter Sunday, another employee Sally Brooks, and Heidi, were willing to work; initially Ms. Brooks
was scheduled to open, but she had another job that needed her that morning. Therefore, Heidi agreed to open
the store that morning.



The day started like Easter Sunday did in other small American towns. Heidi arrived at work early, anticipating
the time she would spend with family and friends later in the afternoon. She volunteered to cover the morning shift
so a coworker could spend the holiday with her children, even though it meant she would be the only one working at the store.

                                                                                                                                           September 16/16

If She was working for someone else how were Gary and Richard supposed to know this?????

Did Deputy Van Patten drop her work schedule in the parking lot?????


More questions
Why was the first register tape transaction 4:06?
Why does the book say Heidi started work at 5am?
Why does testimony show Heidi started work at 6am?
Why does testimony show Heidi was on the schedule to work that Sunday?
Why is a “story” that another person was originally scheduled but Heidi took over instead?
Why does testimony show Brett left at 6:35am that Easter morning but the book says around 7:15am?
The inmates statements were taken mid-July.
Why did OCSD get the transaction tape from April 2, 1994 on August 11?
Why was Mrs. Duell’s file tampered with on August 12?
Why did Bivens testify at Grand Jury that he was in the D&W parking lot and the only car there was Heidi’s, his first statement says he went by the D&W between 8-8:30 but his testimony was leaving Oswego at 7:30am, and his testimony was about witnessing a physical altercation?
How could Richard and/or Gary have possibly gone to the D&W the morning of April3, 1994, taken Heidi to near Gary’s “to talk to her” brought her back to the store before anyone noticed her gone, made a purchase and then kidnapped her with the time between ALL the customers that were there the morning of April 3, 1994?

Final answer-People lied to help get a quick conviction, in hopes of finding Heidi or “getting their man” to placate the community after Mr. Benningfield told the searchers that the kidnapper could be standing there next to them.

Lisa-you did the research years ago. You know part of the Truth….that Gary and Richard are innocent. Do what’s right. You have plenty of support. Stand up to your family and the lying people you have, unjustly, high regards for.

Global Buffet dumping cooking grease down drains backing up into their basement
The health department and the City of Oswego, need to shut down the "Global Buffet." The employees are dirty - dumping cooking grease into the drains which is plugging them and backing the sewers. The entire place needs to be shut down and "STERILIZED!"


All a person had to do was look at or into their back door to see the filth of the place. Tony Bologna did not have any problem with that as long as they paid the rent on time. If you bought food or drink from any business in Canal Commons you probably should be checked for Hepatitis, Dysentery and E coli for starters.

Murtagh confirmed no caddy in his posts online. So where Oakes got that from is beyond me. Murtagh admits and so did Breckenridge of picking up a van at Gary's. But no idea of a caddy.

Who's lying game!

Time to compare some facts, between the book, "Where's Heidi", written by Lisa Buske, sister of Heidi, and DA Greg Oakes, Statement of Facts, filed October of 2015.

STATEMENT OF FACTS, page 1, SAYS: On Easter morning, April 3, 1994, Mr. Law arose at 5:45 am at Heidi's residence. He and Heidi left the residence at ab out 5:50am, and Mr. Law followed Heidi to the D&W Convenience Store. Heidi drove her maroon 1984 Pontiac Sunbird Station Wagon, and Mr. Law drove his 1987 Ford Bronco. They arrived at the store at 5:55 am.

Lisa Buske's Book says: Chapter 3 "A Time to weep" , Paragraph 3, page 35: As my parents settled into their swivel chairs, Ed sat on the couch while I snuggled into my favorite childhood chair. We heard Brett's black Dodge Cougar pull into the driveway then Heidi's feet skipping through the kitchen.

Chapter 1 Page 26: At 5 am, on April 3, 1994, Heidi opened up the D&W Convenience Store, located at the intersection of State Route 104 and State Route 104B, and her boyfriend Brett came along to keep her company until the store got busy. Brett often accompanied her on those early mornings.

STATEMENT OF FACTS page 1, last paragraph, last sentence, SAYS: Mr. Law left at about 6:35 that morning.

Lisa Buske's Book page 26, last sentence, says: Brett left the store around 7:15 am

Who's wrong? Who's telling a story? What was Brett driving, a Cougar, or a Bronco? Hey Oakes, did you ever check your "facts"? These facts, are very important, maybe you don't know which is true, who's playing the liar game?

The other day there was a fire on East 4th Street and I heard that we called in all of our off duty personnel but then sent them home pretty quickly. Don't they all get a minimum of like 5 hours overtime every time they are called in. So much for saving money on overtime. How come we don't call on any of the other departments in the county to help us when there is a fire. The volunteer departments wouldn't cost us any money and could probably get here quicker then some of our off duty members that live quite a distance away. Just my 2 cents.

Northern NY Cold Hardy Grapes Nursery Being Remodeled
Willsboro, NY. The cold hardy grape variety research nursery in Northern New York is getting a make-over.

With new funding from the farmer-driven Northern New York Agricultural Development Program that helped establish the nursery at the Cornell Willsboro Research Farm in Willsboro in 2005, old vines have been removed, the soil is being refreshed, and new varieties of grapes have been carefully selected for planting in 2017.

The evaluation of new varieties has been named a priority by growers associated by the wine grape industry across New York state.

A list of 21 potential varieties for the new planting at the Willsboro farm was identified through a survey of Northern New York grape growers, the leaders of the highly respected Cornell-Geneva and Minnesota University grape breeding programs, and private grape breeders. Cornell University Horticulture Professor Tim Martinson and Anna Wallis of the Eastern New York Commercial Horticulture Program will determine the final planting based on the availability of plant material in the spring of 2017.

In 2015, the old vines at the Willsboro were removed with the exception of the Marquette, Frontenac, Frontenac gris, and La Crescent varieties that have proven to be suited to the NNY climate and soils. Those plantings continue to produce grapes for wine production research by Cornell University.

Regional growers will be invited to help establish the new planting. Once the new trial is planted, the research team will evaluate such factors as vine vigor, winter survival, crop yield, and grape quality.

The results of past cold hardy grape trials conducted in Northern New York are posted on the Northern New York Agricultural Development Program website at www.nnyagdev.org.

The farmer-driven Northern New York Agricultural Development Program provides grants for on-farm research and technical assistance projects in Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Jefferson, Lewis and St. Lawrence counties. Funding for the Northern New York Agricultural Development Program is supported by the New York State Senate and administered through the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets.

When does the publicity stop? , were on the jobt every min. , how did you people go this long without us,? At anytime, did the OFD thank the taxpayers of Oswego for paying there $ 90,000.00 a year B.S. ? And how about those 4 WD . trucks with plows ? Are they saying that THEY do not need the D.P.W. ?
As of right now, I am not sure who to bow down to! Board of education and there leader ( goey), OFD and there pic taking news reporting ( does conzone come on the clock for this public service ?). You do understand that everytime there is a call, they are going to make it out as if they are the only date in town!
We need to see TIME SHEETS , PAYROLL STUBS, RE-TRAINING REQUIREMENTS, AMBL. Expense Costs, Vechile Exp. , Man Time Costs, Accounting Dept. costs, ETC…
Let us see the REAL BREAKDOWN and while we are at it, let us see how the board of education is spending more money ( taxpayers )on more administrators! They do not care either, They Also think that the Taxpayers of Oswego, NY are dumb and have deep pockets ! This Super is just more sneeky than the others!

Why did they cut all the afternoon school programs at the middle school, but hire more addmin. positions ? Is this board nothing more than a bobblehead group ?

Today's  Quote  September 11/2016

“The most erroneous stories are those we think we know best - and therefore never scrutinize or question.”
Stephen Jay Gould

Lies, lies, lies
1. Gary "confessed" to 2 inmates.
2. Illegal search of Gary's property that yielded evidence of Heidi.
3. Phone wire taps.
4. Human bones in furnace.
5. Remains in rolled rug of blue van.

These lies are so easily exposed from the documents made public in DA Oaks' filing it's borderline comical that some people still believe them.

Truth, truth, truth

1a. news article 1995-Dodd says inmates did not say Gary admitted involvement. This is corroborated by the inmates' statements, trial testimony, and by more recent interview with a news reporter.
2a. Fahey tells Judge in pre-trial Hearing there were 2 searches of Gary's property. No pre-trial Hearing was held due to illegal evidence gathered and testimony reflected details of items seized and/or sent to FBI lab. Both searches occurred while Gary was incarcerated. First search on or about June 22, 23 when furnace was seized. Second was on or about July 24 when property was searched and 5 cadaver dogs brought to site with no alerts of human remains. There is indication from Oaks filing that the July 24 search was by warrant. NOTE: blue van was on property for all days of searching and evidence gathered from that van was also testified to.
3a. Phone records were subpoenaed for the MA witnesses. These witnesses were incorrect about Gary and Sharon being in MA on April 3, 4, 5 with a broken down Caddy because deputies positively viewed the Caddy at Gary's property during that time frame.
4a. Testimony shows that no human remains were found from forensic testing and bone fragments were more consistent with animal.
5a. Evidence first gathered from Richard's van on April 9, 1994 which showed no evidence of Heidi "ever" being in that van. Evidence showed that van was seen at a car wash after April 9. Piece of rug that was missing since the first search was found on Richards property. Property receipt given to Thibodeau's, forensically tested to reveal canine DNA. Witness statement about Richard and Gary seen disposing of a rug in the woods with Heidi's remains was proven false by evidence that Richard was working at the time and no physical evidence that Heidi was there (law enforcement physically went to location). Testimony shows that evidence was taken from the blue van during the search on or about June 22 that did not link to Heidi. Testimony from recent Hearing shows that after August 1994 when the blue van was junked, there was no evidence of Heidi in a rolled rug that was in the van.

Questions that should be answered:
Why is there a 40 minute gap between Brett's testimony of leaving the D&W and the time the book says?
Why did law enforcement and family say Heidi wasn't a CI when a Sergeant recognized her as a CI?
Why wasn't the bulk storage Heidi file boxes made available to Defense?
Why weren't the fingerprints from the index card used in conjunction with the notebook fingerprints?
How did Mike have a fax statement of Bivens with the Oswego County DWI unit phone number?
Why was the first time on the register transaction record 4:06?
Why did Brett testify in Gary's trial that Heidi wasn't afraid of anyone in particular but in Richard's he mentions Matt Duell?
Why does Dodd affirm during a pre-trial Hearing that he was withholding information and wouldn't say what he was withholding if he was going to make "the entire OCSD file" available to Defense?
Why wasn't the fact that Sharon and Richard were acquitted of their charges relevant to Gary's Appeal in 1999?
Why wasn't Wheeler reprimanded for lying during a pre-trial Hearing?
Why isn't Pietrowski being held accountable for missing texts?
Why does Todd keep lying to the public?
Why doesn't Oaks do what's right in the miscarriage of Justice?
How could Heidi's family stand behind law enforcement after all that has been made public?
Why was Jennifer the only recently named given a polygraph?
Why is law enforcement covering for convicted criminals when 3 dogs indicate in an area related to the boasting of several criminals?
Why was an excavator brought to the cabin site without the medical examiner present?
When will the Appellate Division begin hearing oral arguements?
Why was it not relevant to Gary's jurors that several witnesses admitted during trial to misconduct by law enforcement in relation to their written statements?
When will the insanity of "Justice was served" end?
Who will be the first to "tell the whole truth and nothing but the Truth"?
Who will man-up and answer - WHERE'S HEIDI?

Compare the theory of Gary and Richard being involved in the disappearance of Heidi and what is known as Fact and compare that to the recent revelations.....#FreeGary.

Lies more lies Oakes
This is how bad the DA office adds to words from Witnesses. Read #179. Bold faced lie. Oakes directs you to exhibit 12, as proof. He says that Roger towed a van and a CADILLAC off Gary's property. Exhibit 12 from Mr. Needles. Says no such thing. He only says that Roger and David Maynes towed a van off Gary's property and Gary was passed. David was bragging about getting arrested for trespassing on Gary's property. Well, if the old junk van sat on Gary's property for over ten years. And it did not run, move, and was never owned by Gary. But the DA wants to give the picture this van could have been used and David and Roger disposed of it. Please, explain why Gary would be pissed for them disposing of what Oakes would like to believe was evidence, or the possible van used. Give me a break, I'm certain if it was, he would have been relieved they got rid of the evidence. Oakes, you sir, are the dumbest DA in this country. You also claim that Kidnapping/murder/disposing of a van across the country lines has a five year statue of limitations. Murder DA jokes has no limitations nor does the evidence in its case. Disposing of evidence with possibly a murdered teen, disposed of in Canada, has no statue of limitations. You sir, must truly think the citizens of Oswego are morons. See attached comments, exhibit 12 and Jokes statue of limitations of five years, to help protect a convicted Murderer Steen. I do not know which ones more psychotic. Ocsd, DA office, or these suspects.

Money Grabbers
ji Is this the same Dept. that threw the DPW under the bus two years ago saying the DPW. was not as important as the Fire Dept ? Do any of the Fire Dept. ,including their union boss, that any of them can fired, laid off or no contract will be enforced ,dues to taxpayers paying more monies , if a tax increase is shown ? Good for the young mayor showing some back bone for the taxpayers! I hope that there more to come !
Ambl. service ( been stealing from the taxpayers for years ) is going to be cut ! And No More Phony Update date classes, And start paying for your own uniforms and cleaning ! $ 90,000.00 per year?, NO MORE !

To Oakes
It can't be simple. Either way. You do not think outside of the box, let alone inside of it. Richard or as your exhibit 12 mr. Needles calls him Dicki Murtagh actually plastered across the internet one night, that he and a employee did haul a van out of Fernwood, off valley road at a red house. Now this red house was very Good friends to Michael Bohrer. It couldn't be Oakes that they covered their ass by moving a van off Gary's property. So they could move this second van on Valley Road. And say it was the van they moved off Gary's. Oakes you can not possibly be that stupid. It's common sense. In which case you lack a shit load, I believe you should track down Mr dicki and request he explain the white van they removed off Valley Road, in Fernwood, for Roger Breckenridge. Around the time of Heidi. If you need a copy of those messages. They can easily be supplied. You also cannot claim it wasn't Murtagh who posted them. A reporter called him out online confirming it was indeed Richard Murtagh.
Omg please no mistake we (3 of us) picked up two vans at gt house ... Me roger & a 3rd person picked up a dift van in fern wood I can't tell you where it was but I'm sure I can drive right to there like I did last week going to Gary's house ( that I had only been to twice before in the 90's

“Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.”

 Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy





 Nine members per east side and west side totals 18. Ambl crew 2 on east and 2 on west . equals 4 . So why not  cancel the ambl crew, put them back as firefighters  ( 11 each side ). Mentor takes care or ambl service, the overtime  issue gets smaller, fire mccrobie and chawgo. And stop this back and forth  B.S.  The mayor has the power to fire and layoff at will!

It is clear that the fire dept has been running this city for years, now the time  has come were the TAXPAYERS have a  say ! And please stop the training that is not needed ! OSHA, really ! These guys are grabing  every straw  that they can . They are lucky that this does not go to RICCO act !

They are applying for a grant to keep the 15 men on the job. Did they get this application approved by the council.




It is time to stop the heroes from operating independently. Everything that goes on in that department should be approved by the council.


That training bullsh!t is another scam. Half the time it is a paid vacation or training for some job they are going to do in the private sector.



How Mad Are They

When does the two four WD pick- up go ? When does the boats go ? When does the  B.S. Training  stop ? Osha does not apply to these guys in a emer.  situation, after all, this is  why these guys go to ( training school), if you are being told that they went to osha, either they are stupid, or handing  the public B.S.  Boy , does the greed run deep.

 And where is Miles Becker in all of this Payroll Greed? Must be at the Library kids section reading  “ HIGHLIGHTS “.

 And a P.S., the mayor can let go anyone, anytime !

Mrs. Duell testified about the register tape, items purchased and time...??
It strikes me as odd that "The time had to be entered into the memory of the cash register. (Tr. 1488)."

Could it be possible that the register tape was...manipulated when the deputy went back on August 11, 1994 to get the register tape from April 2, 1994? Mrs. Duell's OCSD file was tampered with on August 12, 1994.

just a thought on parking
People ( locals ) who do not have a driveway, they get a permit free! Rentals are a different story. Landlords pay for the parking fee ,but will NOT be put into the rent ! Landlords start put into more planning when it includes parking, snow removal,grass cutting , putting out yard waste ( once again, it is illegal to discharge grass, leaves, snow into the streets ) !
After all, when the grass clipings block the drain inserts, water builds up, and if there is cracks in the blacktop, water will absorb into the sub-base ( where breaks are preasent in the drive area ) and undermind the base , which in turn makes bad roads and aldermen who do not understand construction or math !

RE: Questions to be answered
Deputy Curtis testified in the original trial that the money from the register was deposited in the bank. (DA's Statement of Facts does not state this.)

-Sergeant Lortie specifically calls Heidi a "confidential informant" and recognizes her name from working with the ACT team.
It appears his involvement with the case after this report became limited?

-Family, LE and Dodd's denial that Heidi was a "CI".

-Neither VanPatten nor Mrs. Duell notify Heidi or the family of the information dropped in public.? (Thinking they may have considering Brett would stay at Heidi's work until customer traffic picked up.)

-The informants card, photo, etc was "lost" from the time of the Heidi Center move until it was "found" in bulk storage within OCSD on May 16, 1995.

-Pre-trial Hearing Judge's acknowledgment that Dodd was not going to say what he was holding back as far as discovery.

-No mention whatsoever from either Defense or Prosecution during Gary's trial that Heidi may have been a confidential informant. Dodd didn't carry the card, photo, etc...to the original trial? There were 2 prints on the card taken to the Heidi Center right after the disappearance but LE used notebook prints instead? One would think the prints taken in a controlled manner would be more relevant?

-Mrs. Burr recently signs a statement about Heidi's involvement with LE in an informant capacity up to a short time before her disappearance. Brett's recent dialogue with Oakes about Heidi being afraid of a "coke-head" that lived near the D&W.

Lorti Report

“Writer and VanPatten returned to the store and were informed that Inv. Scruton could not locate C.I. file for Allen. VanPatten was Allens contact for ACT Team so writer asked VanPatten if he turned the file over to Inv. Scruton. He did not recall Allen as a C.I. in 1991 until writer reminded him. VanPatten then called the office and had someone check his mailbox. The file was located and relayed to the crime scene.”
Sgt. Lortie’s report 4/27/94

When you see the date of this report 4/27/94 you have to wonder if it was the original or a revised report. Otherwise why would it take 23 days to get it done.

I think everyone knows cops will not rat out other cops but honest cops will not take a hit for crooked ones either. If you ask an honest one to give a statement or testify they will often tell you the facts as they happened. They will not volunteer anything someone in authority has to ask. In many cases those in authority know or suspect the answers they will get so they do not ask the questions, i.e. Watergate and Serpico.

At any rate that just may be what is happening in the paragraph above. After 23 days Sgt. Lortie has had time to think over what has been going on.


VanPatten somehow manages to lose Allen’s picture ID card indicating she was an informant, and he does it in the parking lot where she works.


Three years after working directly with Allen as a Confidential Informant he tells Sgt. Lortie he does not remember her. Then in the next breath VanPatten knows exactly where to find Allen’s missing C.I. file.

At that point someone should have been asking VanPatten to account for his whereabouts on the morning of April 3/1994.

re Timleine
According to testimony from Brett Law, he left the store at 6:35am BUT according to the book “Where’s Heidi” page 27, Brett left at 7:15am. Which is it? It makes a VERY big difference. 40 minute difference. The difference between the inmates being truthful or not.
According to the timeline, there were no customers between 7:20am and 7:38am. That would leave 18 minutes for the “confession” to be true.

It takes about 16 minutes one way from the D&W to Gary’s house.

Questions That Should Be Answered!

Sunday, April 3 1994 @ 2:00 AM was the beginning of daylight savings time.

Was every witness interviewed asked if they were referencing their recollection of time based on standard time or had they set their clocks ahead and based their statements on savings time????

“The first entry on the tape was 4:06 when the cash register was turned on.”
“When Heidi arrived at work she set the time on the cash register”
“The detail tape then showed three zeros and then gave the correct time of 5:55 am.”
Therefore Heidi “started her drawer at five minutes to 6:00 am.”

If Heidi was setting the time on the register because of daylight savings time Then the register should have shown the time as 4:55 when it was turned on.

Why was it at 4:06? AM? PM?
Did the register keep the correct time?

“6:16 am no sale entry on detail tape (Tr. 1515)”
Nine minutes before her boyfriend Bret Law left the store
someone hits the no sale button presumably to open the cash drawer. Did anyone balance the money in the drawer with the sales listed on the tape? Was all accounted for? If the answer is yes then what was the reason for the no sale entry?

At 5:45 Bret and Heidi wake up.
At 5:50 the two get in a car and drive to the store.

Are we talking about a couple of average teenagers or is this Wonder Woman and Superman?
Come on, who do you know that wakes up from a sound sleep, gets dressed, brushes their hair, maybe teeth and puts on makeup and is out the door in five minutes?

Careful there you sound a bit mean-spirited

Judge Hafner is one of a very small group of Oswego County Judges, which has the publics confidence.

Last year Oaks was handed a slam-dunk in the Smegelsky case. Instead of prosecuting multiple counts of Grand Larceny he made a deal to plead it down to partial restitution and a fine. I agree with you. That commission and the people on it are a joke.



Gerald Stern, Esq.
Attorney for County Court Judge Walter Hafner, Jr.

Dated: Sept. 6, 2016 917 453-5328

Based on the judge’s agreement, the Commission on Judicial Conduct
votes to admonish Oswego County Court Judge Walter W. Hafner
for failing to be courteous in three instances (2010-2013).

Charges I and II might have been sufficient for a private caution, the Commission says in its Determination of 8/29/16, but the third charge elevates the sanction to an admonition (which is the mildest sanction in the law), ending a lengthy inquiry into three allegations.

Charge I

On Nov. 15, 2010, in People v Steven M. Swank, while awaiting jury deliberations in a statutory rape case, the judge, defense counsel, and Mr. Oakes, who was an Assistant District Attorney at the time, discussed a possible plea agreement to a lesser charge. It appeared that the jury would be deadlocked and a mistrial would have to be granted and a new trial held.
The defendant had denied at trial that he engaged in sex with the young woman. The defense attorney said he would propose a plea bargain to his client on a misdemeanor charge that did not mandate his client to register as a sex offender. The assistant district attorney, Mr. Oakes, replied he would consent to a plea reduction to a misdemeanor only if the defendant were required to register as a sex offender. Defense counsel refused to accept the reduction on that basis. The judge noted the victim’s trial testimony, and said to the prosecutor that the difference between his position and defense counsel’s position would not affect the victim. The judge added that from her testimony, “she is apparently not upset at the whole incident,” that she now has a child from another incident (unrelated to the defendant), and the plea bargain that Mr. Oakes was insisting upon was “not going to save her.”
The plea discussions failed to produce an agreement for a guilty plea in lieu of a verdict. The jury subsequently convicted the defendant. On appeal, the Appellate Division, 4th Department held that although it was a close case factually, there was no basis to set aside the conviction.
Judge Hafner expressed to the Commission that in his attempt to negotiate a plea bargain when it appeared that the jury was deadlocked, some of his words had been “careless, harsh and insensitive” as to the young woman (in her absence).

Gerald Stern, Judge Hafner’s counsel, made the following
statement concerning Charge I:

Judges often are involved in plea discussions with counsel. Usually, these are in closed sessions. Here it took place in an almost-empty courtroom, at the bench, while the jury was deliberating in another room, and the young woman was not present. In plea discussions, judges often raise questions about the prosecution’s case and try to bring the attorneys together. Judges are permitted to be active in plea discussions as long as they do not coerce guilty pleas. The vast majority of cases pending in criminal parts are plea-bargained. If judges did not participate in plea discussions, the system would be even more delayed since only a small percentage of cases can go to trial. In this case, when the discussion failed to produce agreement, the subject was dropped.

One other point: no one criticized the judge for his handling of the case, either through the long trial or afterwards. In fact, the Commission accepted the concession of its staff that there was no basis to contest the judge’s position that his judicial actions were consistent with his duties and he showed no favoritism to either side. (See Commission Determination, page 3, paragraph 5.) After the jury verdict, the judge denied the defense motion to set aside the verdict (see Commission’s Determination, p. 5, paragraph 12). He sentenced the defendant to prison.

Charge II

On September 5, 2013, while presiding over People v Lee A. Johnson, Jr., the judge, during a bench conference on scheduling the case in which the defendant had been detained for nine months while awaiting trial, inquired of the prosecution why it was taking so long to move felony cases.
During the entire nine-month detention, the defendant refused to plead guilty to the top charge of Rape in the 1st degree and another rape charge. Yet, it took six months to obtain an indictment. Mr. Oakes, the D.A., suggested that Judge Hafner modify his trial calendar and substitute the Johnson case for trial instead of the oldest felony case on the judge’s calendar, which upset the judge since the defendant had languished in jail for nine months at that point because of the District Attorney’s lengthy delay in obtaining an indictment. The judge denied a defense request to release the defendant on speedy trial grounds since, as the judge explained, the defendant, through counsel, had expressly waived the time limitations in the Criminal Procedure Law. The judge raised his voice in referring to the prosecution’s failure to seek indictments on a timely basis and the defense lawyers’ habit of waiving their clients’ rights on request of the DA’s office. The judge pressed Mr. Oakes to explain why cases were not presented promptly to grand juries to reduce the pre-trial detention time and move cases more expeditiously to trial. Mr. Oakes denied any such problem, to which the judge responded that he could establish that there were such delays. The DA stated that the judge’s statement of numerous delays was “absolutely not true,” the judge got upset and “yelled at Mr. Oakes, in a frustrated tone.”
The defendant, who was incarcerated prior to trial for 12 months, was subsequently acquitted of five charges by a jury, including the two rape charges, and was convicted of four lesser charges.
Judge Hafner told the Commission that in pressing the DA because of delays, he regretted his tone of voice and recognizes his ethical obligation to be courteous no matter how good his intentions are.

Gerald Stern, Judge Hafner’s counsel, made the following statement concerning Charge II:

A judge has a responsibility to control his or her calendar and to make sure that cases are moved expeditiously. Toward that end, the judge also has a responsibility to question why cases are not presented more expeditiously to grand juries so that indictments will be obtained faster and trials could be scheduled faster. Concerned judges press the lawyers, including prosecutors, to explain why there are lengthy delays, which was a problem in Oswego County and in other parts of the state.

Judge Hafner raised his voice and otherwise showed frustration. It seems to me that a concerned judge is likely to get upset when there is undue delay and when the prosecutor is not recognizing the importance of moving cases more expeditiously. When the judge stated that there were delays in the Johnson case as well as other cases, DA Oakes responded by saying that the judge’s observation was “absolutely not true.” My experience is that there are few judges, if any, who would not get upset at such a brazen remark in open court by a prosecutor to the presiding judge. The judge was upset with the District Attorney about delays, the resulting overcrowding of the county’s jail, and the District Attorney’s responses to the judge in court.

A judge must be courteous even when a lawyer is not. The judge has advised the Commission that he will be more courteous in the future.

Courtesy in court is important, but so is justice.

Charge III

Judge Hafner presided over a felony case of Burglary 2d degree and Criminal Possession. The District Attorney’s office had been disqualified because a relative of the District Attorney had been charged with a misdemeanor in a related case. Judge Hafner appointed a special prosecutor to handle the cases, but on October 13, 2013, the judge realized that the case before him could not be completed within one year and therefore would have to be dismissed by operation of law since the defendant had been in pre-trial detention.
Judge Hafner realized that the special prosecutor had failed to move the cases expeditiously after DA Oakes’ disqualification, with the result that the defendants, including the District Attorney’s relative, “got away with a burglary basically.” He also said that there were “improprieties” in the handling of the case. The judge was charged with failing to be courteous and making a statement that presumed that the defendants were guilty. He also asked what had happened to the DA’s cousin’s case in the lower court. The judge released the defendant in the felony case from pre-trial detention pending the ultimate dismissal of charges for the failure to prosecute. Subsequently, the charge against the defendant facing felony charges had to be dismissed.

Gerald Stern, Judge Hafner’s counsel, made the following statement
as to Charge III:

Judge Hafner was concerned with the reasons why the felony case was about to be dismissed without a resolution of whether the defendant was guilty or not guilty. He also asked about the DA’s cousin’s related case in another court. Judge Hafner acknowledged to the Commission that his comments were not appropriate. Instead of saying they “got away with a burglary,” he could have said they did not have to face criminal charges because of the way the cases were prosecuted. He regrets the words he used to express his indignation and concerns. The judge expressed frustration that the two cases were not handled properly. He mentioned in court that the defendant in the misdemeanor case was a relative of the DA. (Earlier, because of the family relationship between the DA and the defendant in the lower court, DA Oakes was disqualified from both cases. There was no discussion at any time whether the DA had a conflict because of the defendant in the felony case before the judge. )

The judge is also being admonished for expressing his view that there were improprieties in the handling of the cases, and he realizes that he should have maintained his silence on any suspicions he had.

Commission Determination (attached)

The Commission’s determination, dated August 29, 2016, is based on an agreed statement of facts, signed by the Commission Administrator, the judge and his counsel. The Commission, in admonishing the judge, stated that the judge’s “inappropriate statements … were inconsistent with his obligation to be “patient, dignified and courteous” (p.19 first par.).
The Commission stated:
The need to ensure that justice is administered in a timely manner is particularly acute where, as in Johnson, a defendant had been in custody for a period past the statutory time limits (though he had waived his rights under those provisions). While a judge can properly question a prosecutor about perceived inordinate delays, this duty, like all of a judge’s responsibilities, must be exercised in a courteous, dignified manner.
(p.21, first par.)

The Commission concluded that while charges I and II,
“standing alone, might otherwise warrant a confidential caution, his statements in the matter set forth in Charge III, in our view, elevate this matter to public discipline. We therefore conclude that the sanction of admonition is appropriate and accept the stipulated disposition.”
(p. 22, first full par.).


Judge Hafner has served as County Court Judge since January 1, 1999.

His current term expires in 2018.

Judge Hafner will have no comment to make to the news media.

The judge accepts the Commission’s Determination and will not seek review in the Court of Appeals.

Who is responsible?
Riddle me this one Batman: National Grid hires a contract company to drop a large tree that is on CITY property onto private property.
With no attempt to contact it's owner, the crew damages a car parked at the curb by dragging limbs from the downed tree to the chipper, which was parked behind the car.
Once downed and limbed, the bulk of the tree is left as it fell, on private property, in a mess, complete with damage to the private lawn.
When contacted, the DPW response is "Sorry lady, we didn't do that work". I accept that response, because it makes sense.

I'm guessing that the contractor is totally responsible for the cleanup as well as the dropping of this huge tree, and for paying for repairs to the paint on the varved up car.

Boot Heroes
So the heroes were out collecting for MDA. Who would trust this band of thieves with cash donations with no receipt? Do you really think all of this money is gonna get to MDA? Does the city condone this fund raising event? If these heroes are getting paid overtime to be out there then shouldn't the city be asked if it is ok for them to do it? I don't think this the overtime pay is meant to cover while fund raising. The most important part, and one that I personally will be following up on is who gave the heroes permission to break the law all weekend? I mean what were they doing? Standing on a state highway impeding traffic. Last I knew there are no special provisions in the law that allow anyone to do this for a fund raising. Emails will be going to the mayor, the council, state troopers and state legislature about this UNSAFE situation our heroes created this past weekend. I suggest you all do the same. Shame on you so called heroes.

Scientifically impossible
If you actually looked at the timeline.
At 7:41 stitson arrives, at 7:41 a man cashes out he buys one pack of smokes and two newspapers. At 7:41 Stitson describes the store clerk missing. At 7:42 Richard shows up buys smokes. In the mean time. The 7:41 customer packs his smokes in his car, watches Richard enter and exit the store. Mean while stitson in the store waiting on the clerk, as Richard passes him, cashes out and is never seen by Stitson. As Richard cash out time was 7:42. So the kidnapping didn't take place from 7:41 -7:42 it took place between 7:43/7:44. At 7:45 a cop was on the scene and at 7:45 a van is seen in the town of Mexico ten miles away. By science you'd have to be traveling over 150 mph to make it in two minutes to where the van was spotted in Mexico. The time line is scientifically impossible. How does Heidi, the newspaper customer,Stitson and thibodeau all appear on the scene together. No one saw Gary or Heidi being taken. How do you travel 150 mph, on snowy roads?

Here's another exaggerated example of OCSD, AND DODD.
SOMETIME between 7:30 / 7:45 a.m. umm not. Richard never cashed out until 7:42 a.m. the van was seen three minutes later at 7:45 a.m. we know she had cashed Richard out at 7:42 a.m. So between 7:43/7:45 is the only time that van could have been spotted in Mexico. Two minutes. Use a speed converter online you are up over one hundred and fifty mph, they'd have been traveling to be in Mexico at 7:45 a.m. Dodd did nothing but cross witnesses with other witnesses and confuse everyone with so many times, dates and so many witnesses. He messed up. Four people would have been on the scene. Not just Richard or Stitson. But the man whom bought the two newspapers clearly says he sat in his car for a minute and watched Richard exit the store. So that would have taken place after 7:42 a.m. we can determine these times due to the cash register receipt and the evidence Dodd entered in court on his time line of events. Which none of it adds up. There was no 7:30 a.m.to 7:45 a.m. Richard had not cashed out yet. So if the van was seen between these times. It clearly wasn't Richards van.

Winter Parking Ban
I was reading the posting about the Overnight parking ban they are talking about. Instead of a sticker to put on the car. Why can't the police add the plate number of person getting the parking sticker into computer system? Then when the police run the plates it should come back with the information that they can park in the road. It is like they do with handicap signs. For the price of $125.00 this should be simple to do one would think

Water Thief Abbott
Does any one know what this thieving Oz fireman got for stealing water from the town of Scriba and New Haven? Probably got the same kind of deal Stinkgelsky got from the corrupt DA. Only Oz firemen can get away with this thievery, the rest of us would be in jail. Wouldn't it be wonderful to lay off these two criminals?

Re:Gary Thibodeau
Whoever you are supporting Gary Thibodeau and ripping apart the filing from the DA, outstanding. Some things you posted. I missed. Keep it up. They deserve any humiliation that comes their way. If the community cared about their environment and the sick things the DA and Officers in that county have done. They'd have a better community and safer community for themselves and their families. Instead the majority doesn't stop to smell the roses. If they did. They'd realise they do not smell so grand after all. It takes a big person to not only help, but to spend time paying attention and caring about others. Many have helped. Many still are. I can not wait to see these aholes from Oswego face the lies they've dished out for years. I can only imagine how many other cases they have botched to get a conviction. Dodd was told then you have zero evidence. He will be told again, in supreme. How awful a person they all are for incarceration of an innocent man. Dodd deserves prision, Oakes to be removed from office, sheriff Todd deserves to be a greeter at wal Mart. Petrowski deserves a set of cuffs. Wheeler prison, along with any idiot officer that helped go along with the bull shit in 1994/1995. I pray that they all have repercussions they can not stop. They have put many people through abuse of power. That's exactly what they used to get any convictions through that made zero sense. Gary deserves more than just his freedom. Hopefully with good citizens like you Gary will gain just that.

Hero's Boot Collecting on Rt 104
I see the Hero's were out doing a boot collection for charity and
that the drunk chief was out at the forks of the road in his usual
dress, of old shorts, tee shirt and flip-flops. What a f%@king
disgrace. They also had some skank collecting and on the East side
they looked like a bunch of Hill Billie's. Were they getting O.T. for
doing a charity event? It really makes me proud to be a resident of
Oswego seeing these clowns out there representing the city during a
week-end that will have thousands of visitors in town. Thank goodness
that 16 of them will be sent packing and the Mayor should send the
drunk, slob of a chief, packing as well.
As this was a city department, representing the city, on city streets,
where was the resolution by the council authorizing this activity? I
also saw that they had "caution" signs up to alert the traffic they
were there, after the accident they caused at the fork of the roads
last year.
If this is going to be an annual event, the mayor needs to have the OFD get
approval from the council and he needs to set a dress code for those
that are going to represent our city to visitors that come here on
Labor Day week-end. They were a disgrace the way they represented
themselves, and our city, under the guise of collecting for a worthy

I do not know what the scam is now but it used to be collecting money for Jerry’s Kids.
About 2006 that lazy bum Amedio, who used to be the head of the union, brought a couple of dumb dollies to the council meeting. Supposedly they were from the Community Chest or something. Giggling like village idjots they thanked the OFD for collecting $10,000 over the past (1996-2006) ten years. It was just like the eight-year-old Greaci dragged to the council meeting with a bag full of change just a few weeks ago.

Lets do the math. They had at least four people collecting at both ends of the city for two or three days and they claim they only got a thousand dollars each year for ten years. Lets say they were there only two days. That would mean they only got $250 per day East and West for a combined one day total of $500 times two days = $1000. On the busiest weekend of the year they claim only $1000 was donated. I am betting it was more like four or five thousand and the rest of it went in their pockets. They probably had Smegelsky doing the tally.  Once a thief always a thief.

What is wrong with this timeline found at the end of Oakes’ Statement of Facts filed during the Hearing?

No other customers at the D&W between 6:35am that Brett testified to and a customer, Mr. Wiltse at 7:38am? Why do notes from the Exhibits show there WERE other customers that made purchases between those times?

If Heidi was scheduled from 6am to 3pm, why is 4:06am first reported on the register tape if Heidi didn’t arrive until 4:55am(excluding the hour of DST)?

This timeline Can Not be accurate but was presented at Gary’s trial.

 “Too much agreement kills a chat.”
Eldridge Cleaver

Oakes and Dodd, including Todd
They are not dealing with a small town attorney. Lisa Peebles is a powerful person. If anything happened to Gary, it does not mean any of this is going to stop. Gary asked Lisa if something did happen to finish this case. To clear his name and to bring Heidi family the truth. So no matter what they do. This is not going away. Gary's case will hit supreme court and national news. It's far from done. It has only just begun. Oakes is simply a coward. He questions the integrity of the sheriff dept and the investigator but stands by the fraudulent case. Then you got Todd who says he had very little to do with this case back then but stands by a case he seems to have had very little to do with. But a whole lotta say on what's factual or untrue. Wouldn't be because his brother helped Dodd prosecute this case. Couldn't be to much pride, based on nothing but lies. Pathetic. Supreme court on Gary's last case. They made it very clear. That just the diary wasn't enough to over turn the conviction. Many cases have been over turned for far less and many have had probes in to the cases and activing investigators, and DA office. Gary will go home. It's just a matter of time.

Clerk of the Legislature

How the hell dose the Clerk of the Legislature live outside of Oswego County??
I know she is appointed and has to file an Oath of Office Card when she was appointed. Maybe someone should FOIL for that card and see what she gave as her address. Or, is this going to be swept under the rug.
I would think that the County Legislature should have an obligation to the people who put them in office to see that the legislatures clerk lives in Oswego County. Looks like this will be another county cover up!

Mayor Barlow and SUNY Oswego students
Kudos to Mayor Barlow for taking in consideration the taxpayers when he brought the Fire Dept down to what a normal city our size should have. Hoping now that he will put pressure on the Police Dept to do something about the underage drinking and drunken college students who continually disturb the neighborhoods as they walk through them coming from parties and the bars. Thank you in advance Mayor Barlow!!!

I think that has been the plan all along. Oaks keeps waiting until the eleventh hour to file documents. He and Dodd hope Thibedeou will die in jail and that will be the end of it all. This whole thing has the same stench as the Tony Pauldine trial and the get-out-of-jail-free deal that was given to Smegelsky.

Get Safe ‘n Sight Decals at Great New York State Fair Boating Exhibit
Syracuse, NY.  Paddleboard enthusiasts, kayakers and canoers are invited to visit The Water is Great in New York State: Boat and Paddle Clean and Safe Exhibit at the 2016 Great New York State Fair to receive free Safe ‘n Sight decals and one If Found decal for kayaks or canoes.

Safe ‘n Sight is a new New York State Parks Bureau of Marine Services educational outreach that encourages paddlers to place shiny reflective decals on their paddles to increase the visibility of their boats that sit close to the water surface.

The Water is Great in New York State: Boat and Paddle Clean and Safe Exhibit is a collaborative by the New York State Parks Bureau of Marine Services, New York Sea Grant, U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, and Great Lakes Research Consortium.

The exhibit also includes a 7-foot round boat dating to the 1970s; an inflatable paddleboard; kayak; a display of different types of life jackets, even one for the family dog; Clean, Drain, Dry invasive species management information; and the child-sized U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary mascot Coastie.

The exhibit is in a tent at the mini New York State Park at the Fair, near the reflective pool from which a Great Lakes Research Consortium weather buoy is transmitting data on the State Fair weather conditions.

My son and I had the misfortune to drive down Bridge Street at midnight last night. I was appalled. Dozens and dozens of drunk , staggering, and puking college kids, yes kids....responsible adults don't act that way, all over the street. Water Street was a mess, as was Bridge up to West 5th. Maybe Mayor Barlow should turn his eye to this mess. Had to be 100 drunken pukers in front of the strip club. Makes me ashamed to live here. What happened to the nice little town I grew up in?

scratching the surface
The post of the comment, "Chase's income disqualifies him from OFD Chief's job?" was on to something I believe. Chase has many of his fellow fireman working for him, makes you wonder if that is what creates the overtime. Call in sick so you can spray Napalm of Chase, or plow for Chase or run over college kids with Chase, either way you are making the extra buck and the city taxpayer gets the F---K. You are right it would be interesting to play follow the money, good job for some intern at the Comptrollers Office to really take hard loss at the payroll and absentee records and see if they hit trifecta.
As far as chief it wold just make life easier for all the guys to have the boss of both jobs right at the same location. Might also save us as taxpayers money because Chase might shave a little off the bill next time he poisons the parks if he is using the city phones, and help. Wait that was done before by a local police thief, boy that ended well for all concerned didn't it.

Here is a big shout out question to the Operating Engineers Union and or the Laborers, is Chase paying prevailing wage on all this government work he does? Seems like with all the guys out of work they would have an interest in this business.

Honey: Prince Charming didn't buy it for you as a gift! IT WAS STOLEN!

Chase's income disqualifies him from OFD Chief's job?



With municipal contracts in 3 different states Chase doesn't need the OFD pension especially the insurance. If you base his pension amount on his level of dedication and work contribution to the OFD his pension pay out should be around $120.00 a month. When does he find time to fight all those raging fires in Oswego, saving babies and grandmothers, when he's working out of state? Just exactly what necessitates all the overtime to begin with, besides greed and corruption?? mmm? How can he possibly find the time for overtime? LOL I wonder what would happen if you compared his OFD time sheet to his out of state work schedule? Do you think you'd find some embarrassing overlaps? I wonder how well his employees are insured assuming any of them work full time? They should check out their legal options. Seems like their insurance for a high-risk job should be substantial. 

This latest contract "awarded" to Chase by Republican politicians to one of their cronies is "business as usual" in Oswego Co.


P.S. Chase proclaims the safety of known carcinogens in minute amounts yet how safe are the employees who are repeatedly exposed to these chemicals and in much higher concentrations? Time to see a specialist boys. You need blood work done a.s.a.p. Don't worry they won't be looking for illegal drugs.

College pukes are back

Traffic is now 5 to 10 times heavier than it has been since May.

Our Quiet neighborhoods all summer long are now bursting at the seams with loud, obnoxious, drunk students.

Our side streets barely had any parked cars all summer,  now long time residents can't even find a parking space near their homes.

Now the police are being called for ignorant college pukes parking ACROSS the sidewalks, loud under aged rowdy parties and drunks.

We wake up in the morning to our properties littered with red cups, paper plates, beer cans and bottles.

Some of these drunks puke, piss and shit on our properties.  Some drunks walk into neighbors houses, thinking they are walking back into a party they left earlier.

Or pass out on lawns, porches, etc...

Thanks to our city government for allowing all of this shit, bordering on harassment.

Mayor Barlow Creates City of Oswego Poverty Reduction Steering Committee

This is a great day for Oswego. Someone, Mayor Barlow to be exact, and the Common Council actually demonstrated that they can defeat the likes of the OFD who, with their chief thief, McCrobie, have been blatantly stealing money directly from the tax payers. I only pray that the FEDS ARE CONTACTED so they can take a close, close scrutinizing look at the books at the OFD and have that bastard McCrobie arrested or at least FIRED for the crimes he was the overseer of. In typical sociopathic, greedy fashion, he said he might consider resigning so that it may help the others, the lying worm. He is trying to save his ass so HE CAN RUN AWAY to his retirement and disappear, a typical coward move after he was caught 'dead in thew water.'

Next in line should be the landlords who are, in OFD fashion doing the same thing, blatantly stealing from the tax payers. Oswego has turned into a Rescue Mission, two out of five on Medicaid. To eliminate the Code Enforcement is putting the fox in the henhouse. All Common Council members who are landlords should be required by law to recuse themselves from any issue involving Code Enforcement and rentals, etc. They are common thieves too. 

The people of Oswego should remember when Dick Atkins ran for Mayor, and his chief concern was the illegal padding of the overtime & retirement, etc., of the OFD who, he also said, was grossly overmanned. He was laughed at and was met with scorn and hatred, losing the election to Gosek who, he also said, was going to to trip himself up by his own perverted actions. He was met with more hatred but he was right again.  It just goes to show how many idiots there are in Oswego who commit the crimes and the equal amount of idiots who believe in them.

Fire Department "Perfect Storm"

The circumstances for the exposure and demise of the padding and overstaffed costly fire department came at the right time. In April 2014, the Fire Department wanted to purchase another over priced ambulance and sent the request to the mayor and council for consideration. At that meeting's public session, the mayor and council (Barlow was a councilor at that time) were handed numerous spreadsheets and grafts of how the OFD was padding their retirement with un-necessary overtime and there was a proposal to reduce the OFD by 14 people and a recommendation to replace the incompetent Fire Chief. There was no action taken on the information that was provided, even though the information was taken from the treasures office and was extremely accurate. The mayor at that time was Gillen and had no guts to correct the situation that was placed at his feet. McCrobbie also got a copy of all the information provided, but yet failed to react to it by stopping the situation and actually managing the department.

Fast forward 2 years, and now Mayor Barlow, faced with a million dollar loss in revenue had the intestinal fortitude to do the right thing! He pulled out those spreadsheets and graphs, did his own investigation and realized he needed to act on, and correct a situation, that had been festering for several years. This information along with the revenue reduction allowed him to take the correct path, and he stood his ground and did the right thing....for that I give him a lot of credit.

He still has more to do as far as putting in a new chief that should be selected for the outside with a contract that does not allow a repeat of the actives that cause this "perfect Storm". In the long run, the OFD shot themselves in the foot by being such greedy pigs.

Lets Look at Some Math

       Four Ambl. person per shift (24 hr. ) which means another four personal( Follow my math )  on the next  shift ( which would be  day three and four) another four people ( so at the moment we are up to eight ) so on the fifth an sixth day  another four personal ( that equals  twelve  personal at $80,000.00 per year )  ( $ 80,000.00 x 12 =  $ 960,000.00  and this does not include overtime, benefits, uniforms, food , training, union dues,  Ambl. costs, payroll costs,poster costs, tee shirt costs,boat costs, 4 WD truck W/plows cost, bringing TWO fire Trucks where ever the Book Mobile goes) !  Sounds like one mill. brought in,  $ 1.5 mil  paid out   ! Why not cut the ambl .corp and SAVE THE TAXPAYERS  $ 1,500,000.00 per year! I am sure the taxpayers would like it and the payroll dept. would like it also !  

   And this just in! Taxes would not go up !  What a new concept, cutting waste !

Firemen's Families Meal Tickets?

Are the taxpayers of Oswego also paying to feed the firemen's families on top of their ridiculous salaries? The reason I ask is this, they all eat take-out meals 3 times a day (times 2 shifts - that's 6 shopping trips a day) AND buy groceries? When was the last time they answered 6 FIRE calls a day? How many groceries are actually consumed at the firehouses and how many groceries go straight home with the firemen? As far as their excuse as to why they need to shop for food (6 and more times a day) using the fire dept. vehicles is this; "in case there's a fire we're already in the fire engine". This is pure bullshit. STAY AT THE F*CKING FIREHOUSE where you are paid to be, send one of the "trainees" to pick up your families groceries and you'll have NO need to use such an unbelievable, lame-ass excuse. The food that doesn't go straight home at the end of every shift can also be cooked by the same trainee. That's how they did it for generations. It will also save you all those embarrassing photo encounters that necessitate your hiding the FD vehicles behind the Price Chopper.

Mayor Barlow

Just would like to congratulate Mayor Barlow for the positive change and making the hard decisions that know other had the balls to do, but they all knew what was going on. Now to keep the momentum going you need to tax rental properties as a business , because that is what they are. They don't need to be taxed as say a Walmart or price chopper but certainly higher than residential owner occupied property, that would truly show how committed you are to turning around this city. Please look into this possibility. Another thing I truly think you need to look into privatizing the ambulance service. There are so many things that could and should be done differently, but honestly you have made a nice start!

Time line at D&W doesn't make sense: From the DA Statement of Facts.
7:41 Stinson arrives at the D&W
7:42 last transaction on register...Richard bought cigs.
Stinson must have entered the store just after 7:42 between 7:42 and 7:45.
7:45 Stinson waves down Deputy Curtis 3 minutes after Richard left. How could he not have seen Richard taking her?

Stinson was there from 7:41 - 7:45 when he flagged down the Deputy.

Richard bought cigs at 7:42 and left presumably with Heidi Allen and Gary kidnapping her but Stinson didn't see him.

So Stinson must have entered the store after Richard left and no Heidi.

Why didn't Stinson see Richard kidnap Heidi, he was there one minute before the last sale at 7:42 which we are told was Richards.

7:45 Mrs. Fabin sees van swerving behind her in Mexico
7:48 Brittany Link sees Richards van at Garys

So that means Stinson didn't see him but he was there.
Richard drove from the D&W at 7:42 to Mexico and then to Gary's all in 3 minutes.

Who was there from 7:42 to 7:45 when Stinson waved down Deputy Curtis?
How could this possibly happen?  Why isn't there a time for when Bivens went by the D&W in the DA's Facts? He said he didn't recall  telling a deputy that he dove by between 8-8:30 and saw 2 men abducting Heidi....impossible, Stinson said she was gone when he entered the store at about 7:42.

There's something really wrong going on here.

Oswego tax payers and Oswego fireman

Oswego tax payers and Oswego fireman and friends and family should thank god for the good sense of Barlow and council and start looking at the real Devils in this whole fireman issue MCCROBIE and GERACI they are the real culprits and should be held accountable. Don't be looking to play the blame game this falls squarely on their shoulders! They both should be fired ! Any body with half a brain can figure that out, come on people!!

  How come does it seem that when the city of oswego, ny has a low grade contractor, they ( the contractor ) do not go by the state and fed. rules of safety ! And if OSHA comes in for a violation, who pays? the contractor or the city (taxpayers ) ? Osha was called in for nine violations on that building, but do not know the outcome as of yet !

Keep It Up
All you dirty birds who are mean to your elected Mayor don't know "Sweet Billy" as only I do. If you knew how he got to where he is now you'd have a different opinion of him. How he acquired his first business from his morally challenged uncle was a feat worthy of the appreciation of Donald Trump, his small handed idol. Did you know that Billy has small hands too!? The doctor said they might "drop" and "it" might start to grow as he got older. We're still hoping and he still is a handsome boy! Any woman his mother's age would be pleased to know him. I don't believe any of you dirty rats can de-rail Billy's gravy train but he welcomes the challenge. Keep it coming! Billy has recently gained weight and is ready to get "husky" with you all.
P.S. Yes, he has more than one blue suit.

Great Quote
“Many people in the community have never lived in poverty and don’t truly understand what it is like to live moment to moment”
Justin Rudgick
This is a great statement! This A$$hole doesn't even live in this community and he thinks he has a handle on poverty in Oswego. The County of Oswego is spending over, are you ready, $63,000,000 supporting poverty through DSS. Rudgick thinks by spending $1500 per person (City Officials) is going to make them sympathetic to the plight of the 21,500 people in poverty is a total waste of money. Most of our officials look down their noses on these people and would never sit down with them to understand how and why they are in the position they are in.
Send this A$$HOLE back where he came from.......

“Many people in the community have never lived in poverty and don’t truly understand what it is like to live moment to moment”
Justin Rudgick

When it comes to poverty we are the 8th worst county in the state.
There are 21,565 people in Oswego County living in poverty that is 18.5% of the population.
One in every six people are living in poverty and these a$$holes want to simulate poverty for those blind people who cannot see it all around them.

This particular issue is no different than any other stuff that you have in your medicine cabinet,” he said. “We’re not talking about an airplane that is going to fly over and spread an Agent Orange type dust all over the city.”
Robert Corradino

You have not got a clue as to what the f**k you are talking about.

Wouldn't it be better to err on the side of caution?

Worst Case Scenario

Some fat lazy fireman spends $15,000 to sue the city for $12,000 and he wins.
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.


Mayor Barlow was “looking for a consensus from the council on how to proceed”.


There is leadership at its finest. Waiting to see which way the wind is blowing.

We should do a DNA check to see if he is not really Gilligans son.

Not every part of Viet Nam was sprayed with the (
liquid ) agent Orange yet the Veterans Administration considers any veteran who set foot in the country to have been exposed.

When the Sokolove Lawfirm brings a class action suit against the City of Oswego it will say if you set foot in Oswego City parks you were exposed to the herbicide Roundup and may be entitled to a substantial settlement. Get the legal representation you  deserve call Sokolove Law.


“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.

Dumb City Att.
This tells the aldermen, if you re-nig on this contract, the city will be sued! Tells the aldermen, if people get sick, city will be sued! The Taxpayers lose again! Lets try this, anything that might put the taxpayers at risk, goes out in news memos one month in advanced and have proper notice! After all, the aldermen are not talking to the taxpayers,and do not go thru the pall times only, other forms of media must be used because not everyone gets that paper or subscribes on line and it seems that the aldermen are not reaching out to the taxpayers, except the you man mr. g. good for him, someone is showing some backbone and listening to his people !

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 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.

Below is a copy of the District Attorney's plea bargain and his explaination of how they arrived at it.

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.

“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.

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.
