"I got swept up in the gossip. Apparently THIS mountain emergency was a broadcast tech returning from working on the towers. If true, he had no business driving up there because that wreck was completely avoidable. Sorry to make a quick assumption…"

"It looks like one of the Defenders of The MountainTM ran their vehicle off the top of the reservoir and cracked their head open today. They had to be airlifted out. Not sure how many of the emergency vehicles were able to make it up the…"

"Speaking about the municipal lot behind Quinns and Baja 328 the city says "the City has determined there is not a present public need for the use of the eighteen parking spaces at the Eliza Street parking lot during overnight hours."…"

TC commented on Ben Royce's blog post Parking meters: bad idea. Not because of the hassle, but because it is offset by lost business.
"I agree that traffic flow is as much of a Main St parking issue as total parking spaces. For example, the municipal lot behind the credit union and Rtie Aid is basically invisible to a visitor looking for a parking space. And if they do park there…"

"This has been discussed here before. Is Beacon really going to come out ahead financially on this, or is it another hairbrained scheme to "do something" about a problem without thinking deeply about the issue? Main St Meters, again One…"

State Police playing Army on Mt Beacon?

Facebookers of Beacon have suggested that the several hours of close helicopter activity on or around Mt Beacon on the evening of Monday August 4th was related to NY State Police playing Army. One person said they hiked up to see what was going on and was confronted by a state police officer in military garb who told them to get lost and mind their own business.

Does anyone have any facts surrounding this event?

Construction on Mt Beacon?

Does anyone know what is being built on Mt Beacon right now? There have been a lot of construction materials brought up Mt Beacon Monument Rd recently, like cinder blocks, concrete trucks, dirt or rock in dump trucks.

Over the air HDTV in Beacon?

Has anyone tried to get HDTV channels using an antenna? Before spending money on an antenna to experiment, I am hoping someone here has tried and can report on their success or failure.

Info on VHF/UHF reception in the area would also be interesting, but I'm primarily focused on digital TV signals OTA.

Easy money for Beacon = Unlicensed vehicles on Beacon streets

In addition to the illegality of this traffic, it is a legitimate safety concern as they typically travel above posted speed limits around dangerous curves and past residences where children are prone to play in front of their homes.

Once these ATVs leave the streets they are illegally occupying private property owned…

Does Beacon's Dog Warden actually "catch" dogs?

Someone a few houses away has two dogs that terrorize our neighborhood. They roam leashless at various times during the day, and regularly bark at and chase hikers coming up and down Pocket Road. Of course they crap on everyone else's lawns and annoy everyone but their owners.



I have complained to the dog owners with no success. Of course these are the kind of people who, when confronted with the issue, proceed to slap the dog's snout and yell at the dog because as we all know this… Continue
