I don't believe that's true for steroids which is what my original comment was about. I invite correction if I'm wrong.

It's sounding more and more like Schenectady is the worthiest city for such a noble institution as a gambling casino.
And gplante227, in case you haven't been paying attention there in your Stockade (please read up on the events of 1690), this city has a growth spurt in progress and doesn't need nor benefit a casino. Why have a white elephant when you're demonstrating we already have loons.

The irony of the Commission's concern over the optics of the design, apparently without concern for the optics of their own behavior, are stunning.

Considering the alternative of possible unionization, maybe it's a better alternative?
It could be called greed on the workers' part as I'm sure many do, but with wage disparity (the difference between the highest and lowest paid in a company) as distorted as it is in this country, we shouldn't be surprised at this reaction. Look there for the real source of greed.

Great story Gazette!

That's some hard-hitting journalism!

Also not mentioned anywhere is that there's already a private ski area a half mile down the road. I don't live there and have no stake in the game but isn't that a factor in the story?

The premise of the Civil War was southern states wanting to express their right to subjugate and enslave a race of humans. There was no other reason for it, as much as supporters try to spin it. Confederate (and Union) soldiers were employed to fight meaning there was an economic, as well as an idealistic, reason to take up arms. It's no different today.
The writer makes assumptions that reveal an, at best, racial tone-deafness.
