Great write-up Isabella. I was there, if only as a chaperone, and came away a bit of a fan. They show great musicianship as well as some great lyrics. Even though I was one of probably four males in the audience, that shouldn't detract from their possible broader appeal and look forward to their future work. Also nice touch mentioning the drama with Hey Violet (as I've been hearing of at home ad nauseum), gives some rock and roll color to the performance and depth to your review.
DG, let that girl write!

Pro hydrofracking, pro guns and pro secession - sounds like the makings of the No Need to Think Things Through Party.

Thanks for this Mr. Cudmore. Currently working my way through Thomas Burke's Mohawk Frontier covering in meticulous detail what's known of the years 1661-1710. This sounds like it will give a nice 40000' overview.

And do you mean that ultimately we all "carry". That'd make quite a scene: one nut tries to start shooting and everyone in the theater starts shooting back. In the dark. I'm not feeling safer, sorry.
Or are you who "carry" some kind of select group (selected by yourselves) self-designated to protect the rest of us simpletons? You all who "carry" seem to think your God's gift to the rest of us.

And as he was wheeled away Perillo was also heard to demand that he and his space ship be released so he could return to 'his people' where he would be understood.

Three comments that totally miss the issue.
People have been disrespectful to law enforcement for as long as there's been law enforcement. There is no law in this country to be respectful to cops. It's up to cops to know the lesson of 'sticks and stones..' This one never learned it (as apparently these posters didn't).
The issue is how the cop conducted himself in the face of a harmless insult. And now Saratoga pays the price for his unprofessionalism.

Well I hope they know about the other initiative, MV500, mentioned elsewhere in this paper. Seems to me there might be some complementary interests.
My family goes back many, many generations in the MV and I can vouch for the need for public transportation between MV cities. One example might be when Beechnut relocated leaving many Canjoharie workers high and dry unless they could make the ~20 mile drive to the new facility. A robust transit system might have saved a couple families their livelihood.
For hundreds of years families and businesses have migrated up and down the Mohawk Valley. The need is there, the infrastructure isn't.

In case the Gazette is interested in reporting on other development news not Metroplex or Galesi related, Via Properties was awarded a construction permit over at Rotterdam Mall and has begun to do so. Value for the permit listed as 1.8 million. At least that's what the T-U is reporting.
(No, I don't work for the T-U, I'm just interested in fair and balanced news).
