Rules for the Road

Warning: If you are a student or a minor, please leave this blog now.

No! Not that kind!

This blog is an information source and a forum for mature discussion.
At times it will present material with a somewhat direct slant which could be misinterpreted as aggressive or offensive; nothing could be farther from the truth of the matter. The style might be chosen to stimulate emotions you didn’t know you had and to bring them out so that you can cope, question, and resolve. Always keep in mind that much of what you feel is internal, not external.
This is not the place for immature or overly sensitive or impressionable readers. It is a place for people willing to see things differently, to thing about them, and to reconsider their positions on matters that seriously affect their lives, their community and their futures.

There’s blue sky behind the reality.

Reality is key on this blog and if you’re uncomfortable staring reality in the face and acknowledging it, this is no place to hang out; you could get hurt.
Age is no indicator of maturity. You may be 18 or older, much older and be an intellectual or emotional fetus. Your position in the community or your job is also no reliable indicator; doctors, lawyers, teachers are frequently more biased, prejudiced, self-centered and self-serving than most others. No one has the monopoly on ethics or morality, either. Teachers, priests, ministers, parents are not above immorality, unethical conduct, or downright nastiness.

Some Suggestions

  • The rule is intelligent exchange, civility, respect. Deviations from this rule will not be tolerated.
  • We ask you to leave comments. You can find the comment link at the bottom of each post, just after the list of keywords. Try to keep your comments short and on-topic. All comments are moderated and, if necessary, edited; this takes time so short, on-topic comments are appreciated.
  • You can also Like a particular post. The like buttons and share buttons are at the bottom of the post. Just click one to Like the post.
  • You can get e-mail notifications whenever a new post appears. Just click the Follow button at the top of the screen.
  • All that having been said, there will be questions. Just send a comment or an e-mail. If your comment is confidential you must tell us and we won’t post the information or identify you.
  • In principle, we discourage visits by minors, since the issues we discuss here are very unlikely to interest them and we consider it “Adult Content.” If you are under 18 mentally or chronologically and you feel you need to comment, please have a competent responsible, preferably informed adult do it for you.
  • We also discourage visitors with axes to grind. Please leave all weapons at the door.
  • We do encourage you to send corrections or clarifications of any information we post. We want to be correct and we want our information to be true and factual. You can help.
  • To start reading just select from the Top Posts or Recent Posts listing on the right-hand side of the screen. You can navigate the blog also by selecting a Category (keyword).

    I have been reading the blog, but I would like to know what the banging in the middle of the night is all about.

      Thank you for reading this blog.
      We regret that we can’t answer your question because we don’t have access to the Port or its activities. The ones you need to ask are on the Coeymans town board, who are meeting on October 14, in the Coeymans town hall. That’s where you need to ask your question. While you’re at it, you should ask why they’re disturbing the working community’s peace. But keep in mind that Carver Laraway and his gang are interested in making money not making your life better or increasing the value of your property. If Laraway and his gang are on a schedule to meet certain deadlines established by contract with his customers, do you think for a second that he’s concerned about whether his banging and clanging is keeping you or your kids up at night? The morons on the Coeymans town board have 20-20 hindsight, no vision, and they’re a bunch of amateurs who don’t have a clue what they’re doing. Carver Laraway has them licking his boots and they love it.

      They got us where we are now because no one has put a boot up their fat arses–well, almost no one. We’ve been telling it like it is but we can’t fight everyone’s battles for them. Coeymans has to stand up and fight or lay down, roll over and…Well, you probably know the rest.

      Go to the town board meeting and tell them what you think. Bring some neighbors along. That’s the only way you’re going to get any satisfaction.

      And by the way, the best place to post your comments is in the comments section of one of the articles that relates to your comment. That way it’ll be seen and read by people going to that article. If you keep posting to the Rules of the Road, you’ll get only limited visibility.

    I have a question. What the heck are they doing down at the port? All night long last night we kept hearing a constant clunking sound and it was coming from the port. What are they doing?

      They’re improving your quality of life. They’re improving the community. They’re creating jobs. Just ask the Coeymans or board Carver Laraway.

        They are ruining my quality of life, they are ruining the roads, their trucks are going to kill someone someday since they drive way over the speed limit. They are going to lower the house values.

    I own a 2 family house in Coeymans, recently I asked the Building Manager of the town if I can convert into a 3 family as I bought the house with an existing apartment in the basement. He told me I would need to meet code by putting in a sprinkler system. I told him I can do just that. When he heard my response he immediately said “Oh the town board would never approve it because of the parking situation”. Also, I am paying taxes for a 3 family based on that apartment, and when I asked the Building Manager, “Ok what if I remove the apartment” he replied “Well, you would pay more taxes for a 2 family, and fyi you would pay even more for a one family home. Am I missing something here? Thanks

      Hi, Joe, and thanks for the comment.

      Yes, there does seem to be a lot of confusion and double-talking in the town of Coeymans and the village of Ravena when it comes to billing for water and sewerage and certification of occupancies/property taxation. Rather than go on about a problem that is pretty well-known in Ravena-Coeymans, and even in New Baltimore, this may be a good subject to bring up at a town board meeting, and become a local hero at the same time. Let them mumble, stutter, and double-talk you with in public, with a live audience.

      Thanks for the comment!

      P.s. Your comment will get more visibility if you re-post it on a more recent article.
