Jeeze, who was chairman prior to Pat??? Should he/she be under the same microscrope as Penn State? Turning the head? I think so!!! NYS needs a better story for public scrutiny!!!! Here it is!!!!!! "Why wasn't the Plaque torn down"??? Great media!!!!

I made it known two years ago that it should come down to Orda employees. I am in the rink often and it was an eyesore everytime I walked in. Amazing it took this long.

We need more people like pat who are willing to take the reigns and do what's right instead of putting it up for vote, comments, criticism and costly beaurocrisy.

"Thinkbeforeyouwrite" : If you made this known two years ago to ORDA, to whom did you suggest such a notion to, to have the plaque removed??? 'Cause two years ago is along time, like 2 years!

I am not one to point fingers. But lets leave it at this. All of the higher ups at Orda work right down the hall. They knew it was up and I wasnt the only one who said something. They made a decision to not take it down and are covering that up now. I guess they were too focused on making money at Wface. Oh wait they dont!

My main point is that this paper should in this editorial point out that the people in charge at Orda work 150ft away from where this plack was hung. How could they miss this for the better part of 3 years. Call some people out for once... Instead they dont write that and just say they did the right thing by taking it down now.

No..No.. 'Think'; You are as much to blame at this juncture. You, yourself, have proclaimed the ideation of plaque removal for over two years. Didn't happen. Why??? Not your fault from the initiation, but you are to be included in the 'WHY NOT' GAME for YEARS!!!!!!

Its about time. Now Mr. Barrett why don,t you give the union employees a contract. They have been keeping orda going for 5 yrs with no raise and no contract. And that that needs to be taken now, all the pat's on the back, and the thank you's don't put food on the table. They keep you going do the right thing for them.
