Ellis’ huge parking garage unneeded as well as unwanted Ellis Hospital has been approved for a two-story parking garage made necessary by the new emergency room. The proposed additional two stories to this approved structure would turn it into a six-level parking garage (four stories plus ground and roof parking). To get an idea of how high this building would be, take a ride by the new emergency room. Add one story to see the ...

Proctor's does nothing right regarding historic preservation nor repaying County taxpayers Fred. People have every right to be concerned about what's going on with our tax dollar.

Great letter from Anne Deiber concerning the Ellis Hospital eyesore. If Ellis really has extra money use it to improve transportation to the satellite lot on Hillside. Or buy out homeowners on Ulster and build a proper structure. Only is Schenectady does the Chamber of Commerce speak for a nonprofit and against hundreds of taxpaying neighbors that have had enough of the constant construction and din.

Re Ms Millie and minimum wage. Where does it say a business is responsible for a persons ability to support a family.As far as the ability to make oneself more valuable,maybe that should be taken care of prior to entering the job market. Graduating from high school gaining a trade ,not beginning a family until personal ability to support one,don't become involved in substance abuse, keep clear of gaining a criminal record are just a few of the personal responsibilities an individual can attain to enhance value. The jobs in the service industry were always entry level And made for students or second jobs. As a young parent I worked a second job or my wife worked if we felt it necessary to boost our income. It was OUR responsibility no one else's to ensure that our needs were met,not some business,company or least off some government.As far as non working people and government subsidy that is a whole other issue..

Personal responsibility, drive, ambition and all of those other core values that we have will get you out of poverty. I have a friend of my daughter who got pregnant in high school. She continued her studies and she graduated, she continued to study and she worked sometimes three part time jobs to get by. She worked hard and showed her bosses that she was able. Yesterday she started a brand new job and was able to quit her other two jobs. She did this because of drive, ambition and core values. BTW she just turned 21. Way to go Bon Bon, I'm proud of you.

Ed, your wife and you make good money. I am on a fixed income. Nobody pays for my lunch and I wouldn’t let them if they tried.
Ed, economists have a saying, “There’s no such thing as a free lunch.” I and millions of Americans, through the United States Department of Agriculture, an arm of the bankrupt federal government, which owes $16,75 trillion to various entities, pay for your “free lunch”.

Ed, in my estimates you and you're wife are making anywhere from $7,000 to $10,000 per month. Why should I be paying for you're bad choices and decisions. Maybe you should cut up the credit cards, use one car plus public transportation and straighten out your credit and bills, you make more than enough to do that. My daughter is a single mother who is in the Army who's total income including housing is around $3300 a month and $800 goes to daycare. She also has a car loan, rent, utilities and insurance and she has perfect credit and manages to save a few dollars every month without any "free lunch".

ChuckD, what ever happened to take responsibility for your actions and pull yourself up by your bootstraps. So you get yourself in financial trouble, you get a part time job. I'm so tired of everyone's first choice is to take a free handout from the government. If you want a handout then get it from a church, we willingly give to churches to give out handouts, the government just raises taxes.

I think you and buzzy have been mercifully spared the ravages of a sense community and compassion that most of the rest of humanity seems to be afflicted with.
.
"everone's" first choice is not to take a handout and a business is part of a community which means you give and take, fairly. And that means more than a yearly donation to the Little League. Stop with the hysterical statements and you might see that and not say it.
