Trial waste of money
Are you kidding me? How come as a tax payer of the county I wasn’t afforded the opportunity to vote on whether we should waste more of our tax dollars on another bite at the apple as is being given to plea bargain “Nicky” Duve to prosecute Oxley again? What a waste of our tax dollars, 400K and climbing. Her case is all circumstantial -- she even admits it. What’s her record? Not very good. I don’t get a warm and fuzzy feeling knowing she’s trying again. Are we to believe she can find anyone for a jury pool who hasn’t heard of this fiasco? I doubt it unless they’ve been living under a rock.
No third trial
I think with the financial trouble the county is in, to take Oxley back to court for the third time, and lose once more. It is a waste of tax money.
Politicians should read ‘rooftop highway’ survey
To the Editor:
Well done on your “rooftop highway” survey. The comments are worth their weight in gold. All the politicians should read through every one of them.
Please consider a follow-up survey aimed at economic development -- what is reasonable economic development or something about the rail system or something directed at the bypasses around Canton and Potsdam. Where are people at in regard to the actual bypasses? This might be interesting given the business attitude in the past that a bypass would ruin business. I think the current attitude is much different.
