Reader says Heather needs to take a daily trip at different times of the day instead of believing what Stacey tells her

I would like to see a copy of the lease and actually see what is permitted. Heather needs to take a daily trip at different times of the day instead of believing what Stacey tells her. And since her lease clearly does not have a clause permitting evening drinking parties (How does THAT connect with teaching children healthy living?) Do they pay for permits? Provide insurance to cover uses outside of their original lease? She may have a good idea for a business but not on town owned property. We provide every possible service to her free of charge. If it was not located there she would have to pay for water, electricity for outside lights as well as inside the house, grounds upkeep, etc, etc. All of this she gets for free. We need some camera toting people to photograph the buses, town workers doing everything on her property, and evening parties. I always thought Heather was astute and intelligent but she seems to have been brainwashed by someone on this subject!

Reader says To all of you who think we should move on….you are dead wrong

Alexandra Harwin

To all of you who think we should move on….you are dead wrong. We learn from the past. Harwin was heavily funded by her own grand fortune and the money of many out-of-towners. And even if Hauck, Pucciarelli, and Aronsohn’s names are not on the donor list, they were outspoken advocates for her. She was nasty, beyond nasty, racist, divisive. She sanctioned that horrific mailing from Hans Lehmann. She was a disaster. We must never forget that she tried so hard and spent so much. Thrilled that she lost, but still, she did get a bunch of votes.

Readers Not Buying Village Managers “Defense” of Healthbarn

Habernickel Park Gate House

On many occasions Healthbarn has more then 1 large school bus coming in for field trips all the while other programs are going on. With all the cameras around the house and parking lot I am sure Heather can see them. So should we assume she doesn’t know the difference between small and large buses? What about the charted buses that seem to come 2X a year? Playing it dumb doesn’t really work when your talking about a neighborhoods quality of life!!! Saying a employee lives in the neighborhood is a huge stretch too. what’s wrong is the fact that the Village Manager seems to be protecting Healthbarn not the tax payers who pays her? Did Heather come and collect her zucchini for protecting Healthbarn? Does any village employee want the house across the street from them turned into a for profit business? Because that’s what happened in our neighborhood so lying to everyone is seriously criminal!!!!!
