Wake up Dlopriore, you really want to spend the last stanza like this? Are you kidding me, pal? You really wanna cash the little pay check and provide this trivial ridiculousness? All politics are local. View Comment
they're "making a lot of drama out of nothing" -- because they cover nothing, this is about as vapid a "news" site as it gets. There used to be such a thing as the fourth estate in this country, no more. This is flat out pathetic. I realize nobodies getting paid here, but c'mon, show some pride, break a sweat. We are living in unprecedented times, this crap is pure anesthesia. View Comment
Bears don't practice journalism, this you have in common. However as such they don't practice red journalism, this is where you apparently part ways.
When you're talking empathy for wildlife there is not a community around that that can approach the hypocrisy that is Hastings. The face of the elitist hypocrisy is Hastings Mayor Swiderski. In emails obtained through FOIA, one Hastings resident complained to Hastings Mayor Swiderski about having to endure watching the birth of a deer in her yard, describing the event as follows, "this is something that I should be watching on t.v. not in my yard." The Hastings Mayor's definition of solving the deer issue in Hastings was, "wiping out all the deer." This a man who prior to educating himself on the issue of deer and Lyme disease set out and proudly obtained the first permit issued in the history of NY state for the net & bolt slaughter of deer. When faced with his own words and agenda being broadcast back in his face, he made a back room about face and is now operating an immuno effort in Hastings. Hastings is a faux green as a community can get. Once a truly diverse village, Hastings is now a staid, generic, suburban community, who's face is it's Mayor.
cut and paste and view for yourselves.
Hastings/BP is a joke. View Comment
exactly NATURE, aka, reality. It's what coexists outside the confines of small minds and apartments. Nature, that which has been tossed aside along with ethics and real journalism. Keep following the big bad bears and snowflakes, there's nothing much else going on in the world. Cut and paste baby, cut and paste, keep feeding the sheep cake, that's your job and you do it like none other. View Comment
people are no match for coyotes and white tail deer? Are you kidding me? White tail deer and coyotes have absolutely NO INTEREST IN HUMAN BEINGS, quite the contrary. Stick to cutting and pasting weather reports in stirring up fears. The password is NATURE. Get used to it. View Comment
When the number of innocent individuals killed by jumpers exists, there could be a discussion on all this suicide prevention. Does the state know something we don't know. Hastings on Hudson has "rolled over" and accepted the suicide proofing of their Warburton Avenue bridge, destroying the view of the river and rendering the gateway into the downtown to that of a prison entrance. For what? Are there a number of innocent people who have lost their lives when struck by jumpers? How long has the Warburton avenue bridge been there, and suddenly it needs suicide proofing? Gotta love the resistance Mayor Swiderski mounted on this. None. If there were any doubts on the survival of brick and mortar in Hastings downtown the year or more construction on the bridge will ensure the demise of more stores. Bring on the pop up Prom Shops and Nail saloons. Hastings is in desperate need of a SPINE. View Comment
Of course this very much depends upon the amount of snow fall, or potential snow fall in the respective villages. Dobbs Ferry's Citizens Budget Committee and Hastings' village manager Frobel. (pronounced now by Hastings Mayor Swiderski as, Frow - Bell, no longer Fro- Bill) will surely provide some analysis as to the financial impacts. Though village manager's Frow Bell's data is certain to be challenged, focused and corrected by Hastings Trustee Nicola Armacost (Hastings best by far at arithmetic), I am of the feeling that both municipalities perspective on the issue would be greatly enhanced by re reading the vast Daily Voice archives on the recents snow storms and potential for such weather. Snow is not our friend, to put it mildly. Of course I but scratch the surface when compared to the 24-7 coverage which can found in Daily Voice archives. And while he of course is far too modest to toss his hat into this brain trust, may I be the first to suggest to both villages, that Daily Voice editor Danny LoPriore (may I remind all Mr. LoPriore wrote for the Herald Statesman) and his obsession with snow be included in any decision making. Mr. LoProire also brings to the table excellent cutting and pasting talents.
Immensely. Don't tease Danny, no mention of snow in the forecast above? That's not like you Frosty.
Happy to hear that you've mastered the art of lowering your expectations and raising your serenity. Keep up the good work cutting and pasting snow forecasts. It's what makes you a real journalist and Daily Voice cutting journalism. At no time in history have we needed the 4th estate more. Glad to see you holding the government's feet to the fire, enlightening the public and sharing truths. Somewhere tonight Tex Antoine is very very proud. View Comment
what are the chances of snow? I need to know more, like what the field will look like in snow, how it handles snow, or the chance of snow. You only live once Danny -- you're really making good use of your time. You are, truly. A snowman. View Comment
Not quite that simple, Mr. G. Immuno is being pursued because the option which they had their heart set was taken from them. The empathetic Hastings Mayor Swiderski is responsible for the village of Hastings as being the first town in the history of New York to receive a permit for the net & bolt slaughter of deer. It was a relentless campaign exposing this flawed Mayor which resulted in a reversal of his position. Visit You Tube and enter "Peter Swiderski Swings His Flaccid Slaughter Bolt", it will provide a little clarity before you run off canonizing him.

You are so right Magdalene. Sledding with wife atop me or me atop her or her behind me or me behind her, it doesn't matter, it's a winter erotic wonderland. We don't exactly cozy up in front of the fire, we make our fire on the floor before the blaze. Not much reading gets done in our house under "those blankets," though we sure could write a bestseller about our love of this winter weather. That steaming mug of chocolate is not the only thing steaming as snow falls at our place. And don't forget snow angels, Maggy. There's nothing like the rush of headlights passing over my bumm on our snowy four a.m. lawn, as we role play with our snowman. Aaaah. We are truly snow angels. I can't wait for the next dusting.

Those are some very big shoes to fill. Bloomer is gone far too soon, the man should have been Mayor, the town would have been far better off. The very best to you David, you were a gem. Thank you. View Comment
