folks the sky is not falling. I have a few credit cards. Once or twice a year either I notice a badRead More charge on my account, or there's one of these hacks, and my card needs to be cancelled. No money out of my pocket, and no real hassle, as I can use a different card until I get the replacement. No way am I going to carry around $100 all the time so I can buy gas. I do think that the credit card companies are going to get tired of the cost on *their* end from this fraud, and tighten up security. But I'm not going to change my life because of it. Just keep an eye on your account (I use Quicken so I see the charges the day after I make them).

Card using enthusaists kind of deserve to have this happen to them. By using your cards everywhereRead More you go, do you realize you are taking a large chunk of the businesses profit and choosing to give it to banks and credit card processors rather than the business itself? You, by using your cards, also force businesses to raise prices. Stop using your cards and you won't have to worry about security breaches AND you help businesses AND you help yourself by allowing businesses to lower prices.

For all the years I've had debit cards, never used them. If you're somewhere where credit cards, aRead More check or cash in your pocket can't be used, you shouldn't be there. Besides, most of you forget about all those last minute withdrawals and Irresponsibility takes over, yet you're still surprised- "what happened my bank account?"- the drunken stupor in the bar, or knee jerk "i gotta have it". Most can't afford those approaches, and the service fees know that

When taxes are imposed on various industries then to stay in business the prices increase on theRead More consumer! Obamacare , gas taxes, payroll taxes, tolls, the proposed soda and candy tax , your tobacco tax is 75% of what the product really costs! Commercial Property tax increases! Do you people see what's going on here? This country is being destroyed by the Democrats! It is starting to resemble The a Soviet Union! We should change the name of this country to the USSA!

Mark, Your words are absolutely disgusting. Please do not use this comment thread as a vehicle toRead More spew your racist mentality. And for your information, food-borne illnesses come from agriculture, period. All around the world, including in the U.S. Lastly, your hatred for people of colour does not mean that you understand disease, at all. Good luck in life.

IThe new Mrs Green's in Tarrytown does not seem to be doing well. Should have been a Trader Joe's!
Bob Zahm March 29, 2014 at 12:14 am
@Bruce Apar - would certainly consider it if that was true, but having been here only for 12 years,Read More I'd never qualify.
Nora Mackenzie March 29, 2014 at 05:09 pm
I'm very sorry that Mrs. Green's did not consider expanding into Chappaqua when we really need aRead More grocery story, not a Walgreens. Yes, we can go into Mt. Kisco but they made a mess of the expansion in that store.
Shawn McDonald March 20, 2014 at 09:31 am
Just what we need, another chain outfit to help put the local, family-owned diners and bakeries outRead More of business.
rex merrins March 20, 2014 at 12:21 pm
its more like a cafe than a bakery I like rockland bakery. I LIKE the neighborhood bakeriesRead More rockland and even the bakeies in stop and shop and shop rite. Fairway dose not have a good bakery I dont even shop at the shops its very boring mall in comparison to Palisades Garden State Plaza and Bergen town center
Randy Sussman March 20, 2014 at 04:55 pm
I'll stick with Panera. Thanks though.

I no longer patronize restaurants that I went to each morning, Strawberry Place, for example. IRead More stopped using the Nyack library. I use the library in Nanuet or Piermont. The parking meter is costing Nyack business place a great deal of lost patronige
willie 6 March 18, 2014 at 11:06 am
Nyack Village seems to use parking revenue for Village expenses. until they figure out a way to beRead More accommodating to visitors ,they will continue to lose visitors. Beware of those RUDE NPA agents.

Has anyone looked at the sidewalks in front of these establishments on Main Street, especially theRead More eating and drinking venues. The streets are disgusting. Store owners need to be required to sweep/cleanup in front of their places at least three times a day: morning, noon, and evening. It appears that the sweeping is done only in the mornings when they open, if then. The accumulation of cigarette butts, burnt matches, cups, general litter, etc., is enough to cause a person to gag. Perhaps those establishments can start there. The sidewalks in the front of these stores rival the garbage you see on Manhattan streets. I always wonder how people can sit and eat in the sidewalk outdoor cafe setups with the litter and garbage under foot and within eye sight. 'Beautify Nyack' should begin with clean up Nyack first!

Paula Antolini March 13, 2014 at 01:14 pm
Sir....Perhaps emr did not mean that literally...but I did find that there is concern by utilityRead More companies about aging systems in older cities, "what to do about aging natural gas mains, many of them in difficult-to-access locations in older urban areas, which have deteriorated and are prone to leaking".....here's one NY example: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/energy/2014/03/140312-east-harlem-explosion-natural-gas-leaks-risk/
Theresa Flora March 11, 2014 at 02:25 pm
jo, we're very much outnumbered here in NY--by liberals and those looking for a handout. The cityRead More just elected de Blasio, and look what he's doing to charter schools. By the way, the powerful teachers union endorsed him. And I believe Cuomo will be re-elected. NY is a dysfunctional, overtaxed, nanny/welfare state, and sadly, I think the only solution is to get out. Leave the liberals with their mess.
brandie March 11, 2014 at 03:04 pm
Theresa as for Cuomo i think you may be wrong, he is in trouble and just doesn,t know it yet and theRead More only thing that will keep him is who the Republicans run against him. Astorino is not going to beat him and i do not know of any one else who could at this time.
Theresa Flora March 11, 2014 at 07:30 pm
Just like when no one thought Obama could get re-elected.

The problem with NYS is that it does not provide any incentives for local Planning or Zoning BoardsRead More to approve the very simple applications that come before them for approval or denial, or on the applications that are to set up, expand, or bring into the area a business of any kind. NYS is the most ANTI BUSINESS state you can live in, and I am not saying this to take any digs at the current Political Party that is in POWER, or at the economic goals that perhaps our current Governor is trying to achieve. NYS has been a very tough state to want to risk opening up a business in, whether you are that small shop keeper, or that business that can hire more than 50 people. NYS has always paid a blind eye and a deaf ear towards all request to help the small main street merchant wanting to either take a chance or survive. Never have I ever been exposed to a conversation held with a level of Government that is above both the local or County level, where when I got off the phone I felt like I could accomplish going forward with my dream to open up a business in NYS. NYS dead last for a reason! NYS JUST CAN"T AFFORD BEING DEAD LAST!

As a Small Business Owner in Westchester I'm disappointed ,as the 2 Parties bicker about who's faultRead More it is ..the problem get's worse by the day...the solution is in OUR HANDS !.. BUY LOCAL!,and whenever possible BUY AMERICAN !..As long as everyone longs for the Cheap Foreign crap, and flocks to the Big Box Discount Stores that deal in it,this country will never Recover..go ahead Shop online,give it to Amazon or whoever.. and you wonder why you can't find a Job? or the one you have doesn't pay what it used to..look into Income inequality..and maybe check out Robert Reich's documentary on the subject..We as Americans need to take responsibility for our Actions and the Consequences of those actions..We can't keep looking for SOMEONE ELSE OR THE GOVT to fix our Problems..Can't you see how Futile an Endeavor that is ? ..if this Country is to be Fixed it has to come from Mainstreet USA..not Congress or the White House, regardless of the governing Party whether they be Democrat, Republican,Independent ect..It was people in my area passing by my Store on their way to Walmart,Target, the Internet ect that made for a lousy Holiday Shopping Season,Not a republican or a Democrat.
