Late To School 111 Times In Two Years


NJ elementary school teacher gets to keep his job

Blames it on eating breakfast: "I have a bad habit of eating breakfast in the morning, and I lost track of time."  ~~ 15-yr. veteran teacher Arnold Anderson

NJ arbitrator rejected an attempt by the Roosevelt Elementary School in New Brunswick to fire Anderson from his $90,000-a-year job, saying he was entitled to progressive discipline. But the arbitrator also criticized Anderson's claim that the quality of his teaching outweighed his tardiness.

A Taste Of Retirement For $25 *



Greece Chamber of Commerce
Taste of Town details
The Greece Chamber of Commerce is once again hawking their over-priced tickets to the annual 'Taste of the Town' event planned for this weekend. At $25 per ticket advance sale, $35 each the day of, one would hope for some decent food. 

Sadly, that's not the case, despite the GCC's website claim: "The Greece Chamber's 2015 Taste of the Town will feature 16 of some of the area's favorite food vendors."

"Favorite food vendors"?? REALLY?? How many of us frequent Fleming Point, Legacy, The Villages at Unity or Grande Ville retirement homes to satiate our desire for a night out to dinner? I know we don't!

How did this event go from 25+ vendors the first year to just 16 this year, with 1/4 of them being senior housing communities? Apparently, adding all those restaurants at the mall certainly hasn't boosted participation in Greece community events by those with the COMIDA taxbreaks!

Worse yet, GCC has arranged for a treat for Fido provided by PetSaver ... for carry out ... in a "doggie bag." They are also counted in the 16 "favorites" leading us to conclude: This event has gone to the dogs!

We've decided we'll be cooking on the grill this Sunday and saving our $25 for some REAL FOOD ;)

'SLIDE THE CITY' SCRAPPED!


UPDATE 8/6/15:
WHEC-TV reports that Slide the City was held in NY City last weekend. Attempts to contact Slide the City organizers, the NYS Health Dept. & Bill Reilich were all unsuccessful. Obviously, NYC had the required permits, so why was the event cancelled in Greece?

Is it possible Mr. Reilich holds a personal financial stake in this event?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Company cancels due to safety concerns & legal issues.

Hopes to try again next year.

Reilich "disappointed."
