    What you describe isn't someone who shows up at every Council Meeting wanting the government to wipe their ass for them.

    @ DEAD A** FOOL,

    When you decide to stop being a coward and put an identity behind your pathetic words I just might give you the time of day!!!

    As for Scott Pickup....all has been said and at the rate he is going we really don't have to say much to asist him, he is doing a bang up job all by himself!!!

    FTR - I do run my own life, make my own decisions, none of which hurt the citizens of Rye, can you say that about your boy toy Scott Pickup?

    Is Scott Pickup going to plow my driveway on Friday? Is Scott Pickup going to call me at 4:00 am on Fri morning so I get up a little earlier so I can get to work on time? Is Scott Pickup going to tell me to brush my teeth before I leave the house? Is Scott Pickup going to call my house and tell me what the best route is to get to work? We need bigger government.

    Matt,

    There's no issue more detrimental to life on this planet then the stagnant water on Hen Island. In fact, the only reason why the BOH hasn't said anything about their inspections is because all the inspectors were so horrified from what they saw on the island that they haven't spoken to anyone since. They've all become mute and just stare at the walls all day muttering unintelligible sounds. All the BOH inspectors have been institutionalized and are being feed massive doses of psychological drugs due to what they saw out on Hen Island. The trauma was just too much, and to add to their trauma, as the inspectors were leaving the island, they were told that propane tanks from 1992 were floating around the island and that they would probably blow up on their trip back to the mainland.

    Jim,

    Does the government wipe your ass too? Why do you lay all responsibility for the decisions you make in your life on the government? If the government told you to jump off the Brooklyn Bridge, would you do it? Ever think of taking responsibility for your own life and listening to the National Weather Service and making your own decisions about what you should do in a situation like Irene and Sandy? Ever think of that or do you just sit in your home while the water fills up to the second floor and then blame Scot Pickup when you drown?

    Matt,

    You mention "prepared" several times, ABSOLUTELY one area you would not see me disagree on.

    I brought this very subject up - before, during & after Irene hit in 2011.

    I brought it up again just before SS Sandy hit. Our present Government seems very reluctant in issuing "MANDATORY" Evacs....none for Irene and a mandatory only issued during the "PEAK" of SS Sandy?

    We would be better prepared if our Gov't would not only be prepared themselves but lead the way as well? It is my belief - If this actually took place it would enhance and create a smooth path of any and all volunteer efforts as well as lessen the need of Volunteer assistance.

    Can you please give us your thoughts/opinion on this?

    Charmian et al -
    There seems to be some confusion as to what the Rye CERT effort is all about. It is a nascent volunteer effort that will focus on helping residents prepare, survive and recover from future disasters. We have petitioned the Rye City Council to work with our county and state representatives to provide liability protection for volunteers. Other states provide this liability protection for volunteer groups, and we want to ensure that well-meaning individuals who assist others in times of need are not legally exposed. The group is not interested in becoming an arm of the local government, nor are we looking to replace or challenge firefighters, policemen, or DPW workers in their duties – so we have no worries of a big, nasty and costly fight with any union.
    What we do want to provide is assistance to those in need during times of emergency, if they request it and if we’re able to assist them. There are many residents who were not adequately prepared for the storm, and who received little in the way of assistance when it was needed, primarily because of the extreme nature of the storm. It doesn’t take much imagination to foresee other instances where help might be needed. If we succeed, I think we’ll make our town a better place. If you agree, we’d love your help.
    We have not, and will not, be discussing such topics as elected and appointed officials, concerns over Hen Island, how to reduce or eliminate extreme weather, and the wisdom of government abrogating private property. While it’s nice to think you all believe we have such powers, we realize that the best way we can achieve our goals of providing assistance to those in need when a disaster hits, is to stay focused on doing just that.
    Looking forward to seeing you all on Saturday, if you’re willing to work to make our town a safer and more secure place!

    Matt,

    Great idea. Speaking of future disasters, maybe you could talk Mr. Tartaglione into not rebuilding his dock since the last one he had may still be floating around Milton Harbor, lurking just beneath the surface waiting for some innocent boater to smash into it. Also, why don't you have Mr. Tartaglione bring you out to Hen Island and count the gallons of stagnant water for yourself and see how much Mr. Tartaglione lies. He can't stop lying, it's ingrained in his DNA.

    Matt:

    I will give you my opinions now.

    Judge Carey needs to be the chairman of your group. In addition to his vast knowledge and exemplary public service, Judge Carey is the most fair minded person I know. Plus, Judge Carey was the driving force for this group from the very beginning and continued his efforts even while French and Pickup recklessly ignored his ideas and foresight. Thank God no one was killed during Sandy due to their recklessness.

    Someone needs to fire Pickup, Connors, Nodarse and Wilson ASAP. Putting aside the past for now, this would be a great start for the future of Rye and to start bringing back some of the credibility, integrity and Rye's good name that French, Jovanovich and Filippi stole from the good people of Rye.

    If French, Jovanovich and Filippi have the b@lls to run in November, don't support them or vote for them. They have done more damage to this town in so many ways than anyone could have ever imagined.

    If your going to try and sidestep the Police, Fire and DPW unions, not get their input and or step on their toes by trying to perform their duties, be prepared for a big, nasty and costly fight.
