Block party, Spring fest in Cohoes today

spam deleted. Thanks! 'here's to your health!' Can catch me selling my wares on corner. Remsen and Columbia sts. Artzstuf, company, Ann Reilly, artist, vendor. Was in front of Langley's, a mechanic not in operation so didn't pay fee. Only made $18 after expenses so wasn't paying owner of Spindles, who ran show, $30. He shook me down for money but didn't give in. He said was part of event. He says how I can't just be there, how other vendors paid. The difference between them and me is I am poor, have no car, help, shlep over alone. Live 2 doors down. On my St. Many do what did when event. He Said next time they not going to let me be in it and why didn't I stand in front of my building. Made nothing last time is why. Money made towards my accupuncture costs as not covered by insurance. Joint problems, on disability. He begrudged me little made. Mean time he's making good money off his noisy bar. I have to tolerate him, it, noisy music and his rowdy drunken patrons coming home all hours. Drop glasses and beer bottles on ground outside too. Ugh. Cuts both ways babe.

Went to Normans kill preserve...

spam deleted. Thanks! 'here's to your health!' Went to, on trail. Muddy as in unwalkabe in 3 spots. Took shoes off. Slid on leaves covering mud by embankment part of trail over looking river. After fall, backtracked to entrance as afraid would fall again. Should be a railing there as dangerous. I saw a deer, Cardinals, blue jays, a raven, heard wood peckers and many other birds. Great place if wild life as quiet. Bet not so much when warmer though.

Pricey bakery comes to poor Cohoes

spam deleted. Thanks! 'here's to your health!' Good to see. Place like the Cake Shop here but food is too expensive, especially given the demographic. Many poor people here. Can't afford a mini pastry for $1.50 or a pie for $35. Is outrageous and illogical given where are situated. Crazy to think people would spend that kind of money when can just go to price chopper and get one for 10. Good luck. I see people coming for a quick coffee or a costly $1.50 small cookie is all. People here don't want to give a dollar for a top at thrift store up street. Run to Community Outreach to get voucher so get free! Is the mentality here. Cohoes is not Latham or Guilderland. Many unemployed on public help. Not sure how long will stay open or will make enough to keep doors open. Store next to it, is another in wrong area. Sells ball gowns. People here walk around outside in their pajamas. Never see anyone in shop. Obviously both places didn't do home work before came here. Could use a hardware store. Open that.

Now What!?

spam deleted. Thanks! 'here's to your health!' In the face of so much neglect and ruin, one can't help but ask oneself the question, 'What Now!?" Where do we go from here? Granted the Catskills, upstate NY and other similar rural areas, will never be the same. Gone is manufactring here in the US. The glory of GM is but a distant memory. Many have replaced lunch boxes off to work with food stamps. The Catskills, once were the in plce to come for entertainment. people came up from the city to watch entertainers and stay at the many resorts. Now they have many other options what with planes, like Florida. It is time to rethink and look outside the proverbial box for answers. How can we bring jobs and people back to these abandoned areas? In a shakey economy, entrepreneurs have cropped up all over fending for themselves with little to no faith in their government or it's officials. While it is good to be self reliant, we are social creatures and we do best together rather than every man for himself paddling in a different direction in his own boat. Geese flying on each other's draft is a prime example of this at it's finest. The casino in Schenectady hopefully will bring jobs to that troubled, crime-ridden region. It is my wish that the casino will hire locals rather than outsiders as did Atlantic city making the area worse, not better. It is expected that many will flock there at a chance at winning at their many tables and slots. A new train station is in the works to bring them even, besides by bus and car already. It even has it's own exit ramp built off the highway! The casino is one strategy already implemented to combat the depression that has hit this region. Let's hope it has a ripple effect and impacts the area for the better and other businesses follow suit reinvesting in uptate NY and rural America again in general.

City of Cohoes Neglects their other Grave Yard...

spam deleted. Thanks! 'here's to your health!' Founding fathers years ago made deal with the town of Half Moon to use some of their land for burial plots behind the cemetary there. They were supposed to pay them $20 a month and to maintain the grounds. Neither happened apparently and now the graves are in the woods and covered with weeds. It is disgraceful and a slam in the face to those poor souls buried there. For such a minimal fee, you would think the town would stand up to the plate and do the right thing. Apparently not. Claims too many problems larger here than to do this.Read more on this here
