Ted - Not sure I understand the point you're trying to make. The Journal's editorial aligns withRead Moremy understanding of what's going on with the HUD "case" -- and omits many of the holes in the actual settlement like the one requiring that the "affordable" housing be marked first to non-Westchester county residents.

Right Bob - but I didn't believe and don't believe what comes out of The Astorino AdministrationRead Moregiv en things like the broken Playland Audit promise. When The Journal makes the federalizing local zoning assertion to their millions of paid readers, now I believe it.

Geeze... the Farmer's Market is a fun and enjoyable thing. People like to buy fresh produce..Read Morelight en up for Pete' sake. Don't you Rye Gadflies have anything more important to complain about?

So let me get this straight. Ryedad & Tedc believe that there is corruption occurring becauseRead Moret he city of Rye only "leases" the space to the farmer's market for $1 per year? It's called an amenity for Christ's sake!! Smelly has it right lighten up & if you feel that there is something shady going on have a real sleuth take the case like Lausdeo10580

Thanks Louse. Tedc and Rye Dad are indeed amateurs when it comes to things like this. AlwaysRead Morewinin g and accusing but never following through and proving out the things they say. Just look at the Schubert Swamp Saga that tedc has been blowing on and on about for years with no follow up or proof! Indeed, bring on a real man in Lausedeo if they think this is a major scandal. In the meantime I hope this market stays in Rye... it is a pleasant way to spend half an hour on a Sunday. I guess they would rather that we to patronize that rip off of a company, Whole Foods.

The problem is that Rob Astorino needs to realize that money needs to be spent to maintain theRead Morerides at Rye Playland. Rye Playland itself is a disgrace because it has not been properly maintained in recent years. I think that it is time to realize that if Rye Playland is to make money, the barriers must be taken down and money must be spent to properly staff and maintain the park.

And I understand someone in the legislature is pushing for funding a heating oil czar positionRead Morewitho ut offering offsetting cost reductions to other programs. Isn't this great - here in America's highest taxed county! Did Astorino really promise a 20% county tax decrease? Really?

Selective Environmentalism.

Spot on. Sounds so logical, if competitive bidding is his mantra it should be done across theRead Moreboard not just when politically convenient.

I'm told that Port Chester shells out the money for GRUCCI to do their fireworks. Which, afterRead Morewatch ing the amazing show on Saturday at Port Chester High School could really be the only answer to "who did that?". The very generous owners of local Neri's Bakery apparently foot the bill for THAT. Can't see the County ponying up the money for that, but I'd sure love to see Grucci bid on it. Seems to me if Rob wanted the private sector to help offset costs at the park he'd be looking towards SPONSORSHIPS. We have enough Fortune 500 corporations getting nice tax breaks in Westchester that I'm SURE we could find a few to form a coalition to sponsor the fireworks every year and put up enough money to hire the best.

I never knew this but it's true. Friends ended up with an unknown dog in their yard with leashRead Morestill attached. Poor dog had raced away, terrified by the noise. Fortunately he was able to lead them back to his house the next morning. I'm tired of the noise now too..
Deirdre Curran July 06, 2014 at 10:50 AM
I'm glad that poor dog found good people to help it and managed to get home safely, that's notRead Morealway s the case! I didn't even start the bedtime dog walks on Friday until well after 11pm when things had quieted down. I didn't finish work that night until 1am, but all the dogs were safe and home so it was worth it. Not my favorite night of the year to work, for sure. We'll have a nice quiet eve tonight. Big sigh of relief for all the dogs.

Excellent memo, Anne. Sleep away camp is a wonderful thing, isn't it? Tedc, too right, mate
Deirdre Curran July 01, 2014 at 07:40 AM
SPOT ON ANNE - AGAIN. Nice job. And TedC is correct too.

CEEE stay off these boards. your mucking up the integrity level every time you post.

Tedc, I hate to sound like a broken record, really I do, but the statute of limitations hasRead Moreexpired. Absent new information, not yet exposed, the criminals in the Rye crime of the century got away with it. Period.

tedc, Excellent reporting. ======================================= In addition to the RGCRead MoreScandal, the Rye Boat Basin criminal investigation and the alleged fraud involving Police Uniform Bids (AMAZINGLY none of which appear in the City of Rye audit) there may be a new Rye PD bidding scandal brewing. ======================================= Were any bids done to secure very extensive and expensive computer consulting, software and hardware contracts that were provided by a company that apparently had an active member of the Rye PD working for them at the same time? =======================================
