the unspoken elephant in the room, PILOT agreement and how it is or isn't affected by re-power deal, maybe with all the hoopla, it was overlooked, then again maybe conveniently forgotten

Unless I'm wrong, it sure looks like the BoD want LSH close! An offer to buy it was made and rejected. Is the only reason the offer was rejected was b/c it was too low, and the BoD is willing to reconsider selling if a higher offer is made? Possibly, but it appears to me there's more to it than just paying off LSH debt.

Sorry, but I believe LERHSNY is NOT interested in any sale whatsoever. I say it will liquidate (auction off) all LSH assets, make sure the hospital is NOT sold to a buyer in the health care industry, and then steer all the former business to LERHSNY's other facilities. These ppl are heartless investors driven by profits rather than morals.

I really don't see a lot of options involving LSH. Yes, we can protest, write letters, rally, and unite like never before, but you can't force a private entity to sell, especially when a sale will conflict with future business plans of those who want LSH shut down.

I guess Silver Creek employees and citizens better recruit team Young/Goodell and start gathering in large crowds and writing letters and sending emails. They seem to be pretty passive so far.

Now let's see the same effort to save Lakeshore Hospital and it's 460 jobs, a multimillion dollar loss to the area, amongst other issues with it's pending closure!

government: especially city government who has only one agenda "spend" we wonder what city would if they were "forced" to spend less, wait that's a rhetorical question isn't it, we've said before the only way to spend less is to have less, but we will never see a surplus in this city other then more spending. "the ant and the grasshopper" fable tells what will happen if spending is not cut, but who are we kidding spending less is not in the DNA of city hall

hey rumblefish, the state invested millions in a loser green energy thing. How can this be bad ? the plant makes electricity . should the plant have been dismantled. hou libs are great for saying a lot but actually saying nothing. Investing in unemployment is what govt does best. obama and the libs are noted for it.

You're right Phil,cold day at the harbor the other but as one of the PSC commissioner's said,that was a page turner seeing those folks out there in that weather. Sen Young, Rep Goodell,the CE,Mayor and others were all there along with union folks and teachers doing what Americans do best! I think we'll probably learn on the 19th the details of the monetary amount.

The community united like I have never seen it before but without the leadership of Senator Young and Assemblyman Goodell it would have been time to turn off the lights. There is still a story to be told concerning the reduction from $500 million to $150 million. I hope we can someday find out why we lost that extra $350 million because it would have made a huge difference. We have to be grateful for what we received but we neeed to know why the project was scaled back.

praise area leaders and Cuomo, people duped into believing their well being is being looked for, ask yourself this, "would you invest 15 million to reap at least 20 fold in return, you bet you would, end game is simple, State gives a "little" and gets back a lot, feed the cow a little(cash) and it will produce(taxes)20 times as much, public blindness, there is no cure

The biggest credit goes first to Young, then Goodell, then the Govenor and then the people's actions. As for duh Dolce he doesn't need to take any bows. He didn't do anything special that I know of but all the politicians will take a big bow. In reality their job now is to change their spending habits and put away their egos and make changes. That includes all govt of Chaut. Cty!!!

This is proof that people banding together can make a difference. Instead of sitting home doing nothing but complaining people of Chautauqua County let their voices be heard. A lesson to all of us that getting involved matters. Thanks to Mrs. Young for recognizing this and reminding people to get active.

And for those of you who still want to be negitive...does it matter if Albany did it for votes as long as they did it? That still proves your voice can be heard.

Of course, we all know it was the govt and the public employee which gave us the world of steam, turbines and electicity. I bet you libs will point to this as an example of the govt in action again. like radio, oil etc.
