WDT: Ithaca Schools Turn Off Faucet After Lead Found

         You know we are just told to accept what's in the water as an article of faith. The professionals have it under control. But we are hearing more and more stories about things we drink that are not so good.
        Time to call Neil Katzman and see about one of his water filter systems.

Ithaca libs are so much smarter than other people that a little lead induced brain damage would still leave them better than us.

In the COW lead sampling is done at various locations, In the Northside where the water mains are older and smaller lead could be more of an issue, In homes where there is galvanized service line there is usually a lead "gooseneck" connected to the water main, The Feds mandated no lead in solder, or brass fittings, but nothing was said about the older service lines to homes, want less lead install Pex's plumbing.............

That would explain the mayor they elected and the rest of their politics too.

Does make you wonder about our water?

Something else that makes you wonder; is the talk about paranormal activity at the old mercy hospital location. I've read some interesting accounts on R&R recently.

One person said they saw a nun pushing a person in a wheelchair down the sidewalk, but then disappeared in the rear view mirror. Another states that workers heard the sounds of babies crying in the old maternity ward area while they were clearing the building out.

When you think about how many people must have died at that location over the many years it makes you wonder. It also makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up.

Very true. But then, that's not hard to do.

6:17, be aware, they couldn't be what they are without Daddy's money. It's easy to be a lib when others are paying the bill.
