Better Late Than Never ...

  
Being ever on top of the news as it breaks, the D&C is reporting that Greece police are investigating two armed robberies that happened Sunday night. The first occured on Beaumont Rd. near Stone Rd. and the second happened on Susan Ln. outside an apt. complex near Mt. Read Blvd.

Beaumont and Dewey is the parking lot of dollar General which is getting burglarized and robbed repeatedly. Here is a link to a site found by putting the address of dollar general and 14616 into google.

How can this be. According to the funides we are safe because God has blessed us for praying and for a supervisor who prays and is guided by God.

Why has God forsaken us? How have we offended her?
There is no crime in Greece.

To 8:58AM ~~ That map must have been drawn by Uncle Auggie. If you make a map of the rochester area, Greece has very few crimes of any kind. Interesting website though. Thank you!

To 9:38AM ~~ Who are you talking about?

I refer to the fundamentalist preachers in our burb. They keep telling us Greece is Pure and Great because we have a Supervisor who loves God and encourages prayer and fundamentalist values.
We are crime free, according to the local fundamentalists, because we are a god fearing town.

Too many here live in this fairy take world. Dr Auggie Pangloss says we should keep our faith that Greece really is the best of all possible worlds.

We are still waiting for our Lisbon earthquake

I am always in the safest part of Greece, not because I fear God, but because I carry Smith & Wesson.

To 2:47AM ~~ It seems like too many people are doing just that these days!

9:38 sounds like one of those anti-religion people. What I don't understand is why he/she is now seeking answers from God? Maybe a change of heart. Despite your insults and mockery of our faith, I'll still pray for you in your times of need.

To 11:09AM ~~ I took the remarks of 9:38AM to be a tongue-in-cheek poke at our Supervisor, who fights to have religion in his meeting room but refuses to tend to many other "moral needs" of the community brought about by his decade long pronouncement that Greece is such a safe community.

Re the poster at 9:38

Dr. Pangloss is a character in Voltaire's Candide. Pangloss is ridiculed for his simplistic optimism, and the optimism of those who believed this is best of all possible worlds.

In browsing this site, I happened to hit the story about the six-year-old who was suspended for "just crying". This is something that I happen to have some first hand experience with, since I am a mother of a child in her class. I have observed this girl not just "cry" but throw a bonafide temper tantrum when she does not want to do her work. She screams and yells, crawls under tables, and when the teacher has tried to continue the lesson, she comes up to the front of the room and makes her presence known by saying "I don't want to do my writing!!!" My daughter has complained about the noise this child makes, and how tired she is of having to listen to her yelling while the teacher tries to teach. I get stories that this child kicks and screams because she does not want to get on a bus to go home, refuses to wear her winter coat. I for one, am happy when the school does not put up with this craziness!! Where are the parents that will help this child make good decisions? Do they follow through with consequences if the child misbehaves at school? Somehow I think not!!!

To 3:50PM ~~ Welcome to the BLOG !

I'm not sure why you are leaving your comment on this particular story, since the topic is very different. But that's OK :)

I don't recall specifically where the story about the child you mentioned is posted, so the details of it escape me.

What I can tell you is that classrooms are filled in many schools with children receiving "special education" services. Sometimes their IEP's (Individualized Educational Programs) require that they be given certain leeway/freedoms that regular education children may not receive. I'm not condoning it, but merely suggesting that we don't really know what's going on unless it's your child. Just last night there was an angry, crying mom on the news who was frustrated that her severely autistic son was removed from school in handcuffs and put in jail after suffering through FOUR FIRE ALARMS in one day ... sensory overload for her child. This is the world of "inclusion."
