Greece Dems will be out front and center with picket signs protesting.

To 3:57PM ~~ Why would you suggest that? Do you mean the candidates? What issue would they have to picket about?

Progress!

From the Greece Post:
Walmart and Aldi are the only two Rochester stores affected by the nationwide recall of Cargill ground turkey

Cargill announced the recall of 36-million pounds of frozen and ground turkey on Wednesday, Aug. 3 after the Center for Disease Control and United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service identified the Cargill meat production facility in Arkansas as the potential source of a strand of salmonella, Heidelberg, which has sickened 26 consumers nationwide since March.

At Aldi, the turkey is sold as the "Fit and Active" brand and "Honeysuckle White" and "Shady Brook Farms" brands at Walmart.

The common symptoms of salmonella are diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever within eight to 72 hours of eating a contaminated product, and it can be life-threatening in some cases.



I know I always get those symptoms when I go into Walmart. Could this be airborne?

It's amazing how many don't want to see any progress at all in the Town of Greece. And unfortunately, the Greece Democrats lead that pack.

To 10:08AM ~~ I'm not a Dem. and I see NO progress at all. What progress do you see? Of course, you didn't mention anything specific because: 1 ~ you probably can't and 2 ~ your purpose is to merely take a potshot at the Democrats ;)

How about the progress with the new Mel's Dinner at least that's not another vacant building? But I am sure SCATS will find something bad about that.

Why wasn't there no mention of the Hunter Resch Carnival on your page?

Because as usual you don't like to mention the positive.

Uh, SCATS. The fact that Walmart is finally breaking ground and will eventually open (and hiring) is... wait for it...

Progress.

Get it?

I'm just glad the frivolous lawsuits brought by Donn Rice and he team of NIMBYs are over and we can move forward.

Are the Democrats going to protest the groundbreaking? Is it because the Democrats have a problem with "those people?" I thought they welcomed "those people" and did everything they could to give our taxpayer money to them in order to get their votes.

Dave Garretson posts here. Can he confirm either way?

To 12:50PM ~~ To me progress means a gradual betterment. Replacing a restaurant with another restaurant is progress to you, really? Why are we allowing more pharmacies to build new stores instead of filling vacant buildings if that's YOUR measure of "progress"?

As for not mentioning the "carnival" I do not typically support any kind of fundraising activity which you would know if you followed this BLOG with any frequency ;)

SCATS said...

To 1:49PM ~~ In the event that you weren't also the person who posted just before this comment, "progress" means GRADUAL BETTERMENT, to me. Obviously, Walmart building at Northgate doesn't appear to represent that idea to everyone, thus the lawsuits. It remains to be seen that the Northgate area will be a better place with Walmart up & running. It is possible that it becomes more a drain on our already over-taxed resources, like law enforcement.

Adain, you are here merely to snipe at Democrats with you loathe, not to discuss the real issues. Your future such comments won't be posted.

No one has brought up the sad and lonely appearance of the now empty Britton Rd Wegmans. Will they sell? What will go there? It could be (already is) a storage facility for their many stores and properties they lease to others. They wouldn't even have to change the zoning.

Night Out Against Crime was a fundraiser for Two Doors Down. Why did you post it?

SCATS said...

To 3:36PM ~~ There is a difference though it's been eroded the last 2 years. The National Night Out Against Crime has not been a fundraiser ... until Greece bastardized it by giving Selke a new "carnival" to oversee in the form of the "Dewey Ave. Family Fest." Unless you ate a hotdog or pizza slice or bought a soda, you didn't have to support Two Doors Down. There was no admission fees or parking and there were still give-aways as in the past.

The Hunter Resch carnival did not have an entrance fee either. It was positive. It was family. Face it, you have favorites.

SCATS said...

To 6:59PM ~~ You are missing the point, perhaps intentionally. This BLOG has supported (via announcement on the BLOG) the National Night Out Against Crime for many years, long before it was a fundraiser of any sort. It was NOT a fundraiser until it was combined with the new Dewey Ave. Fest last year which morphed itself into a fundraising event (Selke's specialty). I do not support most fundraisers. That is MY history & the history of this BLOG. The Hunter Resch event was strictly a fundraiser. Greece PD was involved with both events. I plan to continue to support the Night Out Against Crime. I plan to NOT support the Hunter Resch Carnival. That's just the way it is, whether you like it or not ;)
