In recent light of the current entry about highway workers and in the past about fire depts. I would like to offer my comments to the subject.
but first to say that I was a fan of this website. Yes it was great to see the local news (not gossip) in an easy to read forum. No Buffalo or Rochester crap.That the only other local website for info, took too long to download it's info because of other filler on it's page. Well that too now seems to be an issue here on the Batavian but thats another time & place.
Sorry but no, what I want to say is that this place has become the local gossip bin and lets keep continuing stereotypes of old. You have no clue as to what goes on in the world but if you hear it on a scanner, it must be true and seem dedicated to report it at others expense.
Your way of reporting news is ridiculous. To sit and do it from the office with a scanner is laughable. You completely get the facts wrong. Also for the fire depts, you disrespect those dedicated to helping others for the ''joke of the day''.
You now wonder why those that offered to let you on scene, to let you learn something about what they do. Now they want nothing to do with you and will limit your access. You have said it that your here to promote what we do, yet stab us in the back. Good luck in regaining our trust.
Well off to find something that has true reporting of local news, without the bull.
