This site, though it has nice information for me to check out what's going on at home.....has got to be the WORST formatted site I have ever seen.

Seriously, take some basic website classes and learn how to organize your content better.

Thanks Chris for your kind advice. Don't seem to have much time for classes though as this is a 16 hour a day, 7 day a week, 365 days a year job to try to keep up with the news for my readers. Took a look at your facebook page thinking I might learn something there, but I didn't. Anyway thanks for the advice, we are always open to suggestions from our readers.

You know this PF&BC hatchery site is a complete embarrassment to them. This isn’t the firs time that the police has been involved up there with this crew. I sure hope the powers that be finally see what is REALLY going on over there and get rid of that superintendent. If he can’t control what is going on over there he shouldn’t be managing it. There is NO excuse for what has happened there. He is responsible for it. I mean come on he has what 3 maybe 4 employees. I can’t say that they are good ones either. Feel like I am taking my life in my own hands when I stop now with the kids. Every time I am over there they are out of uniform. The facility is always a bit of a mess and it seems that the workers are just running amuck over there. They don’t even offer to do tours anymore. Probably because none of them are capable of it. Hell, I even heard that someone was raising some sort or birds or something like that over there behind the facility. It is a wonder that this place can even operate. Time for a change. If anyone else has seen this kind of crap going on over there please write a letter to the commissioner or even Marty Causer now that he is overseeing the PB&BC. This facility used to be a nice place to visit on occasion and take the children. Not anymore and it is a REAL shame. I'll be penning a letter here in the next day or two.

Pretty sure that the facility was also cited for releasing too much pollution into the creek over there and it boiled down to a procedural problem or lack of oversight by their manager over there. I am pretty sure it was more than once as well. I agree with the poster above. There needs to be some accountability there. I do visit fairly often and it does seem like the facility is suffering.

Chris, Im surprised your comments even got posted, I compare this site to what it must be like to get your comments published in Communist China or North Korea,
Too bad you cant even make a comment without being attacked by
a bunch of half/wits.

Being state employees,(if they are) then they should loose their jobs no questions. why are we paying for shit like this. And all the money for a fishing license What is this. Wonder if the fish wardens are like this too.

Anonymous said...

That’s right the fishermen are paying for this bullshit that is going on. The truth of the matter is that this has been going on there a VERY long time. That should be testament to who is running the place. That person is responsible. What a bunch of goons. So much for the good ole boy network over there. Looks like it is crumbling. They should all go away and the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission should start all over. Someone needs to call them on this. I see the same crap go on over there all the time. This is so sad seeing that we put money into that place every year. They owe it to us to make sure that our hatchery is running tip top and good order and in control. They have nothing to offer the public over there anymore. Like the other posters said above, it USED to be a nice place that you could visit while it was open and sometimes you would even get a nice tour out of it to see the hatchlings, etc. I remember going there as a kid. Those guys used to be proud of what they are doing and took care of the place. Now it is just being run as someone’s personal fiefdom with their own agenda and forget about the rest of us. Running it right into the ground

Hey Chris...GET A REAL LIFE!!! It's pathetic to know that you're only happiness comes from your own misery.

On FB the other day I saw a dad kneeling next to his kid, saying, "If you can't say something nice to someone, make sure you give them a scathingly sarcastic response" or something to that effect. Good one Jim!
People don't seem to understand this is a PRIVATE (non-public) website that is the personal property of its owners. The owners can post what they want, when they want, how they want, with no fear of any kind of ANYTHING if they do or don't (of course, libel, slander, etc rules apply).
So more power to you Jim, and the critical guy can go to some other site if he doesn't like what you post. I, myself sometimes don't get published what I posted in here, but at least I understand why (because sometimes I just like to stir the pot or see how riled I can get some people).
People, if you want to see everything you try and post or don't like what IS posted, go **** yourselves!!!!! Start your own blog and have at 'er, but don't cry like a little girl about what you see on here for God's sake!!!

i can say that Mr. Schoonover did take time and give myself and my 2 children a tour of this facility in a very professional manner and showed the children the hatchlings and explained the process at the hatchery to them he did a very good job and was very respectful and used very profesional ethics while talking with my children i will give him a 2 thumbs up ANYTIME very respectfull with the public entering the facility

I think you do a wonderful job on your site and it is very informative on the news. Much more than comes from the Potter Leader-Enterprise. If it offends SOME people than they shouldn't read it. Keep up the fantastic work.

Jim,

Touche"!

Good response to Mr Taylor, and a good site here as well.

Kathy said...

Dear Jim,
You keep me very well informed, and I appreciate your hard work. When I get the Coudersport and Westfield newspapers, I have already read most of the news on your site. The only negative I can think of is that it would be better if folks who post would use a name instead of "anonymous." Even though I disagree with Chris, at least he did use his name.

WTF are we talking about this website for on this comment string anyways??? Good fricking greif Charlie Brown. If you kids want to throw stones at one another please do it else where!!!

Anonymous said...

I agree with the commenter on the Dan Schoonover stuff. Seems like he is the only one that even cares over there. The other??? One is waiting on retiring and could give 3 shits less and the other hooligans need to be gotten rid of. They are useless, unprofessional, and are just sponging off of the PA fishermen for their salaries.

Anonymous said...

I have stopped there with my children and NO ONE I repeat NO ONE gave to shits about showing anything to the kids. That does include Mr Schoonover. So it must be just an angry bunch over there and they all need to be replaced! Yep I said it fire them all and replace them with people that really care what goes on. I pay for my fishing license every year weather I go or not. I don't want to pay for people fighting on the job or anything that happens over there. Time to wake up and make some much needed change.

Umm did you read comment #1?

Anonymous said...

I've been there many times and honestly those guys don't get paid to give tours yet every one of those "hooligans" that have had to see their budgets get cut every year (so that they no longer maintain their facility like they used to with no new equipment, do the same work with less workers) and yet every one of them are more than happy to show me and any visitor that I have EVER had around the facility with nothing but kindness and professionalism. These men have to scrape fish crap literally 365 days a year in all weather so that you can criticize them about not being jonny on the spot waiting for you at the door? Really? Step into their boots for a day and I'd bet you would get an education and not be so entitled and without sin yourself. By the way, I saw the birds... they were for the public's pleasure by adding some more wildlife for the public to see, but, they don't care about the public, right? As far as the boss goes... you realize these are state jobs right? So the only actual power to handle it like the old days is in the hands of people downstate. You try and be a boss with your hands tied and have a couple of people on staff that hate each other. I know the boss and he embodies decency. YOU DO BETTER, rather than take potshots about something you haven't a clue about. One would think that in a county that is starved for jobs, let alone jobs that encourage kids to do something decent with their families like fishing, that the community would back our local institution and said jobs. But alas it's so easy to point fingers and do nothing constructive...

11:40pm,

I know more about it and situations like this than you think I do.

You must be one of the good old boys there. Here is the problem if you are having trouble deducing what is really wrong there. Regardless of what they are paid to do, and I realize it is less than flattering work and the PF&BC is struggling financially and they may not have the newest of equipment to work with, this kind of bull squat should NEVER happen. If I am to understand what you are saying you claim that the Superintendant is not at fault for ANY of this? So are you telling me that a manager is only effective when all things are good? Hell I’ll bet any GOOD manager will tell you that it is not all peaches and cream all the time. CLEARLY there is a huge PROBLEM over there and something has to change. Making a place great to work for doesn’t always include having the best of equipment and people historically have not gotten along or else we wouldn’t have had World Wars but a GOOD manager is able to keep a lid on things and be on top of things. Not let them fester and explode or let the work place suffer. They all get paid to work and a manager gets paid to manage through good times and the bad. The real shame is that there will probably be no accountability placed at the level that it should be placed and things will continue to decline on the PA Fishemens dime. Wouldn’t surprise me at all if the PF&BC does nothing to improve it and someday it will just be shut down.

Really? Because what will surprise me is if the two involved in their personal war against one another will actually, for once - be held responsible for their actions..................or if like COUNTLESS times in the past - will just use their families contacts and relationships to skirt through yet another disiplinary action taken against them.

This website would be much more appropriate for the public if there wasn't so much biased negative comment towards one another. One simple smart remark leads to full on war, quite frankly I'm very displeased with how small minded people can be. Jim I would absolutly love to see an unbiased article of online bullying, isn't that what they are learning in elementary school? This Blog is wonderful for keeping the public informed but sadly I've been seeing it used to verbally beat down others. Isn't there something more you could possibly do to change the attitude of this Blog site? Not only adults read this, but kids read these articles as well, is this how you want to represent your website?

Lighten up Francis.... I agree completely with the first comment. It is a great site to find news that has just happened but a night mare to find anything more than a day old. Take it as I'm sure it was meant... a helpful comment to make the product better.
