I see Judge Kloch has the merry band of miscreants back in court regarding the never ending saga of AES. I know a lot has been said on this by many of us, but if we want closure, one way or another, it's time for people to put up or shut up.
1) Niagara County: Clyde Burmaster must direct his attorneys at Philips Lytle to either prove fraud or end this nonsense. From what's been written, they've proven only one thing: that they can make a lot of money off of the Legislature. Burmaster et al, when this charade is over, you're going to have to answer for all of the taxpayer money you've wasted on legal bills.
2) AES: There is continued talk of investment and this PILOT is about the future. If you're going to invest in this county, then start doing it already. Let's break some ground and put people to work.
3) Barker Schools: Waaaa. We're poor. But we've heard rumors that you've hired the recently retired Superintendent Steve LaRock at a rate of $500 per day. As soon as this is confirmed, we'll be all over this story. And maybe Prohaska can actually do some real reporting.
4) Somerset: Still too afraid to release Shoemaker's legal bills to the public. You should be ashamed of yourself. Your cries that you have been wronged by secret IDA meetings would ring more true if you weren't the ones hiding information from the public.
Etiquette question: When Philips Lytle and Shoemaker go to dinner to celebrate how much money they made off the rubes in Niagara County who kept suing each other, who picks up the tab?
