hadenough: your post regarding "who will be the winner..." is dead on!

Most career pols carefully put themselves into position where they can't lose, regardless of whether the outcome is favorable or not.

Seems no one gets the idea of who the winner of the rally will be. If NRG goes bust Young and Goodell will say we stood beside you in your time of need. If the Project goes through then Young and Goodell will say see what we can accomplish when we stick together. Either way the winners are Young ad Goodell. NRG is and has been operating on one generator for some time now. If the electrical output of NRG was that important and needed why then only the one generator. You have to look at the whole picture to see the winners and losers.

Ah but rumblefish you DID choose to call people names. What do you call the comments directed at Sen Young and Rep Goodell,compliments? Memory loss sometimes indicates a serious neurological issue you know?

Captain is right the PSC did not cause this issue, just because we have our own opinion on why the rally was staged and the day that was chosen, we never criticized the right to assemble, we expressed our opinions not to sway to attend or not, we never ask anyone to take sides. to either support or oppose our view, nor have we chose to name call others for their views or choices, if we didn't care we would remain silent, this forum gives us the right to express, that is what we do

Nothing wrong with showing support for your community. Too bad the same effort has never been demonstrated against those who've actually helped cause many of the local problems facing the city, instead of standing in unity w/them.

Remember folks, the PSC isn't the one to blame for what will follow if/when NRG closes.

while we are on the subject of "numbers" we wonder what it cost the city for overtime at the rally being a Saturday you know it had to be double time at least, and we doubt clean up time was "donated" maybe the 4th ward councilwomen will inquire...................

we don't know Captain, did not attend or claim that we would, but it being a political event you can be sure the numbers will be "inflated"

Actually "rumblecarp" it means that some people unlike you care about their community.

The Clarion provided a warm up room with coffee and doughnuts. Great community turnout who really care about this area.

we had also heard that Steiner was going to set up display of all his scientific achievements at the rally unfortunately, that's not feasible seeing these achievements only exist in his warped mind

Has anyone noticed that the leaders of Dunkirk past and present have no idea how to be proactive. Every thing the city has done now and in the past has not returned one single dime to the city coffers. The previous mayor was hung up on plants and trees. This mayor well he has no plan either. It's always react to a crisis. The WWTP the water plant. Instead of forward thinking or ways to save money its spend, spend, spend. The city residents believe all that what comes out of City Hall is gospel. Well reality is setting in and it don't look good.

When this city is finally put to rest Tombstone should read" Here lies Dunkirk, oh for what might have been with forward vision instead of rearward leadership"

The long term power generating/distribution economics just are not there, folks, so "one more time" won't undo the humble math.

The worse part about all of this is that ALL of our local leaders -- village, town, city, county, state -- could have picked up any national paper, read any business magazine and they would have read all the articles which were saying, time and time again: Coal power generation is on the way out and is forecasting to decline, while natural gas is the future.

It was out there a decade ago and became REAL obvious 5 years ago when fracking took off.

But no one in any area of responsibility went to the lake and took a long, long look at the plant with that big heap of coal and wondered, "what if...?".

Well, here we are. Blame those in power for "losing the power" -- it happened on their watch and they should have looked out for their constituents.

NO one listened to 2200 people but let's do that one again. Perfect example of doing the same old thing and expecting a different result. I am also sure there will be no where near 2200 people there. Dumb, dumb thing to do.

we would take offense to the racial slur, if we didn't take into account the source of the remark, we aren't the first to receive bigot's comment and we are sure that we won't be the last

Since when does government run by polls? Essentially, that's what the 2200 at Williams Center was, i.e., 2200 people saying thumbs up and maybe 3 with thumbs down, as I recall. Like most posters here I want the plant to remain operational, and, as much as I believe it's in OUR best interest to keep it open, Albany should make the decision based on the facts and not signatures on petitions or crowds at public meetings. Otherwise, they're just pandering and lawmakers don't pander. Yikes, did I really just say that?
