5-18-11: voters say no to a lot of schools (good for voters!), valerie bertram's email address?

On my other blog, I talk about Stuyvesant's possibly unethical use of a special prosecutor.

Here are more politicians announcing they are charging jobs.

Hudson's waterfront plan. Great piece. Minutes from Hudson meeting written on a computer, printed on a piece of paper, then scanned into a PDF.

Dramatic school board election in Hudson. I forgot to vote in my election. What! I just plain FORGOT! Yet, I'm glad they voted it down. Increase every year, and increases after previous increase (compounding interest kind of thing) means that over the past 10 years Ichabod Crain, for example, has increased its budget like 80% from where it was in 2001... or something like that. I heard this at a meeting and it may not be quite perfect but makes sense in principle: compounding increases mean the 4% this year has a more dramatic effect than  you might guess.

Don't forget to stop by here. More election results.

And here is all the rest of the news for the day.

Stupid ad in Times Square.  This is not a tourism strategy that makes any sense. Back to the drawing board. It won't work and if it did work it wouldn't work. Advertise to the people who will like it here as it is not present the county in an unrealistic way to people who won't get it.

This looks better to me.

And the County needs some vision to deal with this.

Phone tower in Copake.

Anthroposophists coming to town (they are here already of course).  Big Up, Anthropolophists, you should find something to do this summer.

Great photo from Kinderhook.

More election results here.

Need a library? Would be nice to have links to each site on this list. Like this sounds very cool.

Truck stuck in the wires. Wires must have been too low. I do see that from time to time. Why not put them underground?

Traffic accident on Route 66 near Chatham.

I think the county historian is a real, paid gig?

Stuyvesant Foil Officer Melissa Naegeli,

I have not gotten a response to my viewing this information yet. Does the town have any objections to me seeing these records now that Mr. Freeman has publicly said I should be allowed to view them?

Regards, Martin Roby

ps: Deputy Supervisor Ron Knott & Other Town Board members I hope it is ok that I am emailing you; Supervisor Bertram has informed me that she no longer will be using the for town or county business. I would assume it is a prelude to a resignation? Perhaps the county should remove her email from the county website as well?
