All's quiet at the STCC forum.
« on: September 17, 2023, 04:20:07 pm »
Nothing going on when I checked this afternoon. Looks like they've gone underground or got fed up with banging their heads on a brick wall!

Over the past few weeks, I've been traveling around the area, and been paying attention to the views. The Perinton area is fairly hilly, so there are some magnificent views from the peaks of these hills. And what do I see? More than anything else -TREES!

We're not short of trees!

On my first visit to the States (from England) on my return, my wife asked me, "What was it like?" and my reply was "Trees- trees! They are everywhere!"

So, it still puzzles me where this rhetoric about saving a few trees illegally growing on an old, badly designed earthen dam comes from.  Obviously some folks haven't understood the importance of having a clean, easily maintained dam slope, and how dangerous this current situation is.

Or have they actually got it? It's awfully quiet!  Maybe the town supervisors have got it. Maybe the 'founders of the STCC have got it too?

Just how long did anyone think this Facebook group could get away with telling the same "lies" about the condition of Erie Canal Embankments?

How long before the group's membership finally gets tired of the same old rhetoric from Leadership who has been in "dam denial" for 5 years?

You are correct Mr. Caswell, no new posts in a month, and STCC membership is now declining, maybe a result of more people understanding just how wrong this group has been on public safety and Erie Canal sustainability. Hopefully the group members realize it's time to leave this sinking ship, it's been full of holes for years.

But I myself will NOT believe that the Leadership of this Facebook has finally understood Earthen Dam Safety and how it matters along the Erie Canal Corridor, until they issue an apology to all of it's members, as well as NYPA and the NYS Canal Corporation, for being so "dam stupid" in the first place snd misleading so many people away from the "dam truth" about a hundred year old Erie Canal.

"Ignorance is bliss"... until you realize it's actually YOU being that Ignorant.
