Yes, I agree of course that wildlife are essential. I am just not sure they are essential in urbanized areas, for the safety of people and domestic animals. Bears in your backyard - if you don't live on a multi-acre estate - are not a good thing. And just so you know, I am horrified when New Jersey has its regular "Bear bag" - I don't advocate people going out and shooting bears! But a news operation should report on their presence in our community. View Comment
Good thinking. Wait for a bear to attack a person, then call 911. Because we wouldn't want them to feel oppressed or take away any of their rights. Nothing in this article suggests that law enforcement would seek to "obliterate" the bears - but if you seriously think their existence in the community is not news, worthy of reporting so people know, say, not to leave their dogs outside, you're living on another planet.
By the way, on Monday night I saw three deer on the same Water Wheel site, but they were standing at he edge of the property looking as if they were about to jump onto Saw Mill River Road. I wonder if they saw the bear. View Comment
I agree with forest spirit. Bernstein is not really committed to greenburgh- he has an agenda and isn't even interested in being a full time Supervisor. This is not what we need. Plus, Paul's replies to accusations are convincing. He's not perfect, but he's honest and has done a good job for us. View Comment
Have to point out that your colleague "Pizzaman" accused me of being paid to comment positively about Feiner, so I suppose you might agree that he has no interest in an intelligent conversation? I didn't notice you calling Pizzaman out for that ridiculous and insulting claim. View Comment
Sherrie? You think I'm Sherrie Feiner? No, dear, you are way off base. I have never even met Sherrie Feiner and wouldn't know her if I tripped on her Your problem is you can't believe that actual unrelated, independent residents of this town *like* the job Paul has done for the town. Not everything, but enough to make our quality of life better, and enough to vote for him. Try to lower your paranoia level - it is not helping your argument. View Comment
1. Re "child killer", read the comments: http://greenburgh.dailyvoice.com/politics/supporters-opponents-voice-views-game-referendum
2. I didn't say I have "been here" for a year - I get the feed and sometimes read stories and less often read the comments and even less often respond to comments others have posted, when I find them particularly absurd, like the above "chld killer" comment. This site has a long way to go before it's top notch journalism, having nothing to do with the obsession against Feiner on some commenters' parts.
3. I formed my opinion of Mr. Bernstein at the Verizon meeting I mentioned and at a few other meetings in its aftermath. I have spent almost no time thinking about him or listening to him, but the impression he made has not faded. You're free to support him, and I'm free not to. But it's the knee-jerk blaming of everything on Feiner- opinions stated as facts - that I find irritating, and that I am calling out.
4. I have not been insulting, you have called me a troll and accused me of being paid to write here which is not only ridiculous, it's also insulting.
Thank you for the link. View Comment
No, I don't read that blog. I had vaguely heard of it and just now went there and read a sampling of its posts and can see that it is not in any way a reliable, objective news source. And I never said I was simple, or a lady, and surely not that I know nothing. I am a resident of Greenburgh - yes, a woman - trying to have a dialogue, and I object to your tone and insulting language. View Comment
I'm a taxpaying, longtime resident of this town who disagrees with you, and that makes me a troll? Keep talking to yourself - I tried to start a dialogue here about the ridiculous demonizing of Paul Feiner but I should have known better. You;re not interested in the truth, you're not even interested in engaging in a conversation where you attempt to convince other citizens with actual arguments and evidence. You just want to repeat your innuendo and accusations, while seeing your fake names in print, and insulting someone who disagrees with you. Nice supporter(s), Mr. Bernstein. View Comment
I couldn't care less what you are "buying", and I'm not the one with shtick. I referred to the rabid anti-Feiner cabal *here*, meaning here on this site, and what I was referring to were comments that I have seen here in the last year, blaming Paul for anything and everything. I've commented on it before on this site - feel free to look at my history. And yes, calling someone a child killer is defamatory, and hinting at nefarious doings by using words like "corruption" is innuendo. So maybe it's a group of anti-Feiner people who see him as the devil incarnate, or maybe it's one person pretending to be more for effect. Don't know, don't care. But I'd need actual evidence of wrongdoing to be convinced, not just you or anyone else merely saying so. View Comment
I assure you I am neither, nor do I even know who you're talking about. I'm just a Greenburgh homeowner who moved here with my husband and kids over 20 years ago, and while I haven't always agreed with all of Paul's positions, I have always found him to be responsive and helpful when problems and issues have come up- from helping with Con Ed emergencies, to running interference with various town departments, to always being willing to listen to and support suggestions by residents to improve services, such as an ongoing discussion about getting the water department to join the 20th let alone 21st century and have online records and bill payment online. His staying accessible to constituents at any hour of the day or night makes our quality of life better. You don't get that with faceless, arms-length bureaucrats. And throwing around words like "incompetence" and "corruption" doesn't make it so. This is not a campaign ad.
Now I have to ask you why you have mentioned a "gated community in Boulder Ridge" twice in this thread, as if readers will understand your veiled innuendo. Would you please spell out what you are implying, so we can see what you're talking about?
