Every body in the pool !

Added by Leroy Williams on July 30, 2009 at 1:24pm — 1 Comment


For those who were unable to attend- Last night (Tuesday July 28th) there was a informational meeting held for Beacon citizens regarding community watch program and neighborhood watch. Thank you to Detective Don Williams from Beacon police and Beacon citizen Kathy Deutermann for organizing it.

Beahive, as founder Scott Tillitt calls it, has… Continue

Housekeeping: If you're mean to people you will be deleted

Hello BCN members,

First, I tried to be libertarian - to let this network self-regulate. Then, I posted user guidelines, urging respectful behavior. Then I tried ignoring bad behavior. But today I'm taking a long overdue step to rein in the nastiness.

Here are posts I've deleted today because they are overly sarcastic, mean-spirited and/or near-slanderous:

"The owner, like Tom Sawyer, seems to be able to find people to donate their professional…

We are going to have a variety this week at The Hudson River Market including the everlovin' Cheesecake Brownies and "The Beastcake" plus we'll be at The Beacon Farmer's Market (weather permitting).

Neither does this video I am about to show you, but I want to let Andrea know it reminded me about the poop patrol!

So if you are in a mood to indulge,… Continue
