More info for SuperClown and his ignorant remark about winter in the norhtern hemisphere so where is global warming---------well here is your answer Clowner with 10000 patents,lol,lol ------------ via National Climatic Data Center - NOAA - actual figuges not predictions, real numbers clowner. ----"The Northern Hemisphere snow cover extent (SCE) during January 2014 was 46.03 million square km (17.77 million square miles), which was 840,000 square km (330,000 square miles) below the 1981-2010 average. This was the 10th smallest January SCE on record for the Northern Hemisphere and the smallest since 2007. This is also the first January since 2007 that the Northern Hemisphere SCE was below the 1981-2010 average. Both North America and Eurasia had below-average January SCE" --------- But Super Clown Steiner wont know this because you looks out his window and says hey its cold out ,!!!!!!!!! lol Super Clowner the Fake at it again.

i just love taxpayers comments. We have someone who sees the daily rip off by our govt on its own citizens. As far as Rt 60 vs other roads. i would for sure check the semi traffic to see which road gets more trucks. heavy vehicles have to figure into this some how. The D &F 90 exit gets a lot of traffic and a lot of trucks. i went around asking truckers why they exited this exit. especially after seing liquified gases. they told me, after asking if i was a terrorist , that they were going south on rt 60 . Its a mystery to me why they would do that, but on the days i canvassed truckers. they told me the same answer.

People should be totally outraged by the government we have. I got news, they will continue to steamroll as long as they are allowed.

It dawned on me today, the CSEA are the sacrificial lambs in this public union fiasco. How come all these other unions were not over there at the home supporting their brother members. Maybe one is not a brother unless they belong to the same union. My guess, they nothing personally to gain so they stayed home. What a selfish, self centered group of people the unions are.

I think I am finished commenting here. There should be at least 100 comments on this issue. Its going to take more than a few people to change the government we have at a local level.

DiNapoli: Funds Dedicated for Highway & Bridge Capital Projects Continue to be Diverted for Operating and Debt Costs

Money in the Dedicated Highway and Bridge Trust Fund continues to be diverted for non–capital purposes, leaving critical highway and bridge projects at increased risk as the state faces fiscal challenges and shrinking debt capacity, according to a report issued Wednesday by New York State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli. Log onto the State Comptroller site for the full story folks.

CKP5600, when taxpayers are on the hook for gold plated pensions, the roads are patched with anything they can find.

As a person that drives RT 60 every day, it appears to me that the majority of damage is directly related to the shoddy repairs that were done last year. Every area that was patched (using the term very loosely) is what is crumbling and coming apart now. So now we have to throw more money at the problem because it was not done correctly in the first place, typical government at work.

From Cronig's response, it appears he has been feeding at the trough for years.

DCronig, this is why reserve funds are created. Winters like this have been happening occassionaly since who knows. We have no reserves for these expenditures because of the GREED in the public sector. I hope the public union employees, especially teachers and police enjoy their vacations to the Bahama's, Cancun, Aruba, Jamaica or Europe. The rest of us just want some decent roads.

I'm on a roll here agreeing with Dcronlg again. True true - the elevation change on the Chautauqua Ridge, and the dizzying changes in weather from Webster Rd to Maple in Cassadaga are mainly to blame for the bad road condition.

Erosion in summer weakens that portion of the road. It's on a giant hill. Then with constant salting and melting/freezing in the winter it stands no chance.

Look at the condition of all the roads that go up/down hills in the area - they're all terrible. Comparing Rt. 60 on a hillside to routes 5/20 is apples/oranges. US20 is built to federal highway standards and NY5 is along the lake where temps are mildest.

hey cronig, noone predicted this winter because of global warming ! yep, everyone believed the lies fom the liberals on this one.cronig sinks himself again and agin. hey cronig, did ya hear the latest pathetic attempt by the libe to explain this weather ? the jet stream is the culprit and they say it has weakened and allowed the cold air, due to global warming to flow down from the arctic,where the polar bears are dying in record numbers.the stupid liberals think we have now altered the jetstream, the river of flowing air. what is air mostly ? nitrogen and oxygen. What are explosves, nitrates, nitrogen and oxygen. the stupid liberals would make all their explosives out of carbonates , co2 and co3. Of course they would not work, like the public schools !lets hear it cronig !

hewy cronig, it is you who should open your eyes. For several days i have seen Dunkirk go to minus 10 or greater. very cold since it is right on the lake. It has been colder than the airport in buffalo and other areas. Cronig, you always attack people sayng how smart you are. Nope,its the other way around. PS dunkirk has been colder than me and i dont live close to Lake erie. the roads around me, some heavily travelled have nary a pothole in them.

Taxpayer: public unions have nothing to do -- but perhaps show your incredible ignorance -- with how budgets are forecasted. No one -- I mean no one -- not one municipality across the US forecasted this winter would be as harsh as it is.

So, somehow the cost of this winter, with its shortage of rock salt -- is the fault of unions rather than the 5 - 6 polar-vortex storms we've had???

Duh....

Mr editor, , so other roads ar not as bad as rt 60 ? you know what the answer is ? it has to be due to global warming ! when all else fails, blame that and the need for immediete govt action. I like taxpayers responses.

Pomfret Town Supervisor Don Steger had better use his eyes before opening his mout to show the world how ignorant he is.

Rts 5 and 20 parallel the lake -- which usually has a more moderate temperate micro-climate (as in less extremes..) than Rt 60. Less snow, less freezing and thawing extremes.

Any*****fool KNOWS that going south from Fredonia towards Cassadaga the weather abruptly changes at the top of the three lane hill -- geologists call this the "Chautauqua Ridge" -- from warm to colder, from no snow to white outs -- and straight on towards Jamestown.

This plays havoc on the asphalt.

Pomfret Town Supervisor Don Steger better use his eyes before opening is mouth.

I can already hear the whining and sobbing from the federal, state, county, town, and village governments, "it was extra harsh winter and we have don't have the necessary amount of amount to address the problem". Which begs the question, why is this so? The short answer "public unions".

I took a trip to Jamestown yesterday. On the way back to Dunkirk I was stuck behind a plow. He had his plow down and there was no snow on the road.There is a such thing as over plowing! At a certain point potholes become more dangerous than a little bit of snow.
