425,000 Page Views!

Time to celebrate.....
The Holland Blog went online for the first time at 13:30 hours on Saturday February 14, 2009. Today, at 21.51 hours, the Holland Blog was viewed 425,000 times (page views or hits). Back on January 30, 2011, I reported 400,000 hits. Shortly after that, I realized that the counter I included in the PERL script was counting in discriminatorily, the counter counted also hits from spammers and web-crawlers. I then disabled the counter. The 425,000 is the number from Google Analytics and shows actual hits from individual computers.
As always, I would like to share an interesting YouTube video with the readers of the Holland Blog to celebrate this special occasion. The video is about an encounter between a well-to-do kid and a few of NYPD's finest:

Police Chief and Selectboard no longer recognize volunteer Patrol of Reservoir.

Good afternoon,
I hope this note finds you well.
I have news, which although we may not like, does communicate the town’s position with respect the Volunteer Boat Patrol (formerly Harbormaster).
To the point, the town does not recognize, nor support, a volunteer patrol of the reservoir. The Police Chief will not allow the appointment of a citizen appointee, as has been done in the past. The Board of Selectmen concurs with the Chief, as follows.
The Police Department has designated a reserve officer whose duty it will be to patrol the reservoir, providing law enforcement and public awareness information. Therefore, there is no longer the need for a volunteer patrol, especially with the liabilities exposed in today’s litigious society.
This is a departure from the past and our expectations. I ask for your patience as we move forward with this new role within the Police Department. If so moved, you may express your concerns in one of a few ways. You may contact me via phone or e-mail, the Board of Selectmen, the Chief of Police, or the Lake Oversight Committee.
Please continue to be the caring and vigilant neighbors that you are. For those of you who have volunteered, thank you for your service and your willingness to serve. Certainly, the reservoir has been safer because of you.
Cheers!
Jim (President of the Hamilton Reservoir Association)

Nancy Curving falsely accused of selling drugs.

Back on June 21, 2011, an anonymous individual commenting under the pseudonym “the pushed upon” left a libelous comment on this Blog accusing Nancy Curving of soliciting drugs. While I can see the need to publish anonymously on issues involving town officials for fear of retaliation, (they all just hate me for being exposed and criticized), I can’t justify any longer anonymous comments directed towards private individuals of our community.
The commenter “the pushed upon” is a coward and will hopefully be found and held responsible in the realm of an ongoing libel suit in Superior Court. I, Peter Frei, as the owner of the Holland Blog, personally offer my deepest apologies to Nancy Curving for the emotional distress these false accusations by the anonymous commenter “the pushed upon” must have caused her and her family. To avoid such anonymous unjustified attacks towards individuals of our community, I will delete any and all anonymous comments accusing any private individuals of our community of wrong doing in the future.

Frustrated

Hi Peter, I am a resident of Holland and prefer not to use my name. If you need to use, Jane. I am hoping that you might be able to post this message on your blog, as this week has been a nightmare. If you want to change some of the wording around please do. Sunday morning my husband and a neighbor walked down our street and cut up branches, that they could safely cut. They also tried to help one of the guys on another street near our house cut up trees that were blocking him in. The guy they tried to help was plowing and they asked him to come and plow our end of the road and he did NOT! So much for neighborly help. And the town or tree company or someone, guarded trees and wires that were down (the wires still are) but did not do anything to the trees until Wednesday evening. And the town never came down our road to plow. not that it matters much now.  Holland has so many private, tucked away roads and I would think that the Holland police would do drive bys and wellness checks, but as far as I know, at least on my street, no one has come by. Thank you Peter!
