And MANY places for SOME to live? Is there some sort of qualification process to move out of NY that I'm not aware of? That is a very peculiar post you have made.

As a lone worker, not ass line. Wow, Observer, how did that escape your censorship clutches?

Christopher, if you're a line worker here, you can get a job ass line worker anywhere else. If you work on sewer systems here, you can get a job doing the same thing anywhere else. NY is not some wierd alternate universe where jobs done here are unique. Chances are very much so that anyone working here can get a job doing the same thing elsewhere. Particularly in South Dakota (and PA, too), where there is a massive boom underway due to the drilling industry explosions going on there. People, if you are opportunists looking to exploit a growing economy for all it's worth, move to one of the two aforementioned states. Your chances of success are multiplied several times over. In SD, McDonalds workers are making $15/hr! Not because of unions, not because of state mandates, but because things are growing so fast there, and jobs are so high paying, that basic service industry jobs JACKED UP THEIR RATES TO COMPETE!

On that I agree, localresident, there are MANY places for SOME of us to live than in western NY, depending on income or training or skills. Quite a few, actually. For a great many people, it's all about the weather. For others, it's particular jobs. I don't like California at all, but I guess if I were into some sort of high tech, Silicon Valley is still a pretty good place to be. I don't have blinders on at all. It's those basing the entire state of NY based solely on our portion of western NY wearing the blinders.

Well, we have Ellicottville, we have Chautauqua, we have Bemus Point, we have Clarence, so using the logic of others here, all of New York, especially Western NY, is doing well!! Great, so happy to learn I'm living in such a prosperous area!

Oh, and sheltered. I forgot to add that word. People in WNY are sheltered, too, blinders at the ready. "it can't be different anywhere else!". And Chautauqua being a best small town is a joke. It's nothing but high-priced properties that out-of-state people (because NY won't allow any prosperity) use as vacation homes. Good for the real estate agents though. A least the 6% they get on selling a condo is somewhat meaningful then.

Actually, Judeye, in spite of easily available resources, it's an abundance of taxation, restriction, jealousy, intolerance, inflexibility, disdain, and hubris that keeps business from moving here. The jealousy is obvious with every new announcement of a new business, regardless of its nature, bringing out the NIMBY crowd. Inflexibility from the "keep it the way things were because we fear change". And the rest goes on and on.

Anyone else notice it is the far right extremist who resort to insults and name calling when they disagree with other comments?

Guess they really do not have any real thoughts or facts on issues. Just lots of spouting off name calling, almost like junior high.

And they really think that ignorance, lack of education and lack of skills has nothing to do with companies not wanting to relocate here.

And Judblindeye speaks again and brings in the negative or what she thinks is negative. Why don't you find Steinernut and take a trip with him down the well you forgot to mention.

It's a twister it's a twister. I feel SOOOO much safer that fracking isn't allowed in the town of chautauqua. Just think how taxes may have went down with fracking. And with the safe act too. I feel all warm and fuzzy now. I think Judeye lost her tin foil hat. They sell more foil Judeye. You need another sheet

Awesome!!!!

Voted number one..as it should be.

Now think for a few..what would it look if 'fracking' sites were all around it? Oh..don't know what they look like...google it and click images.

What if the water got contaminated due to the chemicals used in this type of drilling?

Fracking brings with it much damage to our communities. Another reason to double check, investigate, and oppose this type of drilling in our beautiful county.
