High praise to Chief Kilcullen for this move. You don't have to be law enforcement to know it begins with hearts and minds. And that can't happen from behind the wheel of police cars.

nanmossey, you're way off base for suggesting the NYSA's statement is in opposition to SAFE, and that is emblematic of the hysteria the NRA has effectively drummed up over this. Take a deep breath and reread it.
.
What I read, carefully actually, was the Sheriff's legitimate concerns with the Act and a repeated willingness to work with the Governor to improve it. It is flawed, no question. But given the hostile, delusional, non-negotiable, tone-deaf attitude coming from the industry and their tools, it needed to be put into place fast. Much more needs to be done with it though and that's the take-away I get from the Sheriffs. Bravo, let the work begin.

Thanks Mark. I guess the internet does have some redeeming value!

Mr. Lull, you can add the next crossing down the line on Putnam to that, in spades. And I suggest it's an even worse case of the same scenario: crossing deteriorates, CSX fixes it, three years later we're all forced to tip-toeing across it again.
.
As for Burdeck, that wasn't done right to begin with. From Day One it's been a very lumpy crossing, far worse than what they actually "fixed".
.
It all just looks like job security devoid of any pride in workmanship.

Also missing is any mention of public access to the actual wattage produced, not the glowing numbers of projected savings. Answers to the hard questions please?

The tragedy aside, it's a shame some industrious reporter can't find a local Chinese speaker to help read the Chinese language World Journal where they have very in-depth coverage of this event.

Why do I feel a little nauseous reading this story? I know I'm missing the 'good news' part of it.

Wow summer, axe to grind, or what?
I, or members of my family have been patients at Ellis many times over the past 40 years or so. Sometimes just the Emergency room and sometimes for more complicated issues (subdural hematoma, cardiac catheterization, etc) and I can only think of one time when the service was subpar, and that was on a busy New Years' Eve evening.
.
In addition, many years ago I was employed at another local public hospital and worked all the floors at various times and overwhelmingly worked with staff with their hearts in it, in spite of over-compensated hospital management pulling the rug out from under them every other month.

Mr. Cazer "and his ilk" seem to have either conveniently forgotten, or are blissfully unaware of the experience we already had with the Iroquois Gas pipeline of the 1990's. You don't have to be Black belt Googler to uncover many, many instances of the callous attitude these companies have for the environment, including those who inhabit it. Maybe Mr. Cazer "and his ilk" feel that's an acceptable risk, maybe they're tools for the companies, but I'm betting he doesn't have any connection to Blenheim, NY. Is it any wonder many of us don't trust this industry? Come out of your gas haze Mr. Cazer.

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In the largest penalty in an
environmental case since the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill, the
Connecticut-based Iroquois Pipeline Operating Company will pay
$22 million in criminal and civil fines for violating federal
environmental and safety laws, the United States announced today.
The violations stem from the construction of one of the country's
longest natural gas pipelines running 370 miles from Canada
through upstate New York and Connecticut to Long Island.

Gorgeous pictures that showcase the NYS treasure that is the Erie Canal. As I look at the shot of Fairport, and think about the proposed casino and all its private property, I wonder why Schenectady can't have nice public waterfront too.
