Yes campaign signs do serve an informational purpose, but you don't need 10 or more of the same sign spaced 25 feet from each other. Did anyone ever go out and count the # of signs each candidate has and vote for the one with the most?

The nearest thing like this ever tried on over the air TV 5 night a week was 7:30 live on WNYT-TV many years ago. As the name implied it aired at 7:30 on week nights. It was a combination of in depth news, feature reporting, the late Bob MacNamara moved his player of the week segment there. It was a flop and lasted just a few weeks. Most people are to bed by 10:30. I would not want to place a bet on whether or not this will last. In the broadcast industry it is "whatever sells".

Its too bad, things don't look good for Ed.Wished the outlook was better. I noticed that CBS6 has an employment listing on their website for a news anchor dated 8/19/15. I am thinking it is for Ed's position under the assumption he will not be back.

The first sentence by charles displays selfishness. This is a regional issue that will help the regional economy, not county against county. There is more to this than the route 30A bridge not built to handle truck traffic. You have 2 places in the village of Fonda where tractor-trailers must turn in what are fairly narrow intersections. And remember, the distribution and other businesses in Fulton county employ workers from Montgomery county as well as Fulton county. Montgomery county enjoys the advantages of having a limited access super highway passing through. That why they gained the Target warehouse and why Beech-Nut remained in Montgomery county when it built a new plant. Incidently, I live in Saratoga county and do not work Fulton or Montgomery counties and derive no benefits based on how this ends up.

Shame on you Ms Roberson for trying to capitalize on your sons death.

How much walk in business is there on the present route? A Stewarts, A Cumberland farms, both of which are not locally owned and pay their employees peanuts. A gas filling station and a seasonally operated ice cream stand that gets primarily local patrons only on the Fonda side. The businesses on the Fultonville side, the truck stops, Mc Donalds, etc, might not be that adversely affected. Sounds like a case of selfishness on the part of Montgomery Co officials.

Good point bitjockey!!! It was sure an act of darwinism on young Ward's part. While Tony Stewart is believed by many to have a questionable disposition, I am not convinced he could have avoided this incident. This kid's parents appear to have dollar signs in their eyes. They also probably have a dirty lawyer pushing them. Shame on them for trying to capitalize on their son's death when it is probably not warranted.

Some people never learn. Per Gov. Cuomo's exective order, he willnever have a license again upon convictions.

An eyesore for a decade? It has been like that for over 3 decades. I am thinking that Stewart's will have room to build extra storefronts to rent out? Stewart's has very good logistics, planning, etc. Unfortunately, they are difficult to work for. I wonder how many of those 5 part-timers they added will still be with them when they open the new store in October?
