Please correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe:

The NY Assembly hasn’t been too keen on these new proposals that have been introduced by the NY Senate This would include the proposal to expand Level 1 Registration from 20 years to 30 years.

Article Says:
“Instead, a person must call the 800 number operated by the state to learn of low-risk offenders in their community. While the 800 number has proven to be useful to businesses and volunteer agencies seeking to screen employees,THE NUMBER IS NOT AVAILABLE OUTSIDE OF NORMAL BUSINESS HOURS and the caller must have extensive details such as the sex offender’s name and either the offender’s exact address, date of birth, social security number, or driver’s license number”

Isn’t the ideal of a business is to operate during business hours? Why would you need a law to allow a business like employers to access info outside of business hours?
If this proposal wasn’t actually true, I would be laughing

I actually would love the chance to have this:

“In addition to making it a felony for a sex offender to fail to appear at a risk level determination hearing,”


As I was trying to state on the phone. One of my worries for people moving here is their ability to find work. If a person has that under control, they need way less. Just the money to get here. I feel confident that $4000 would suffice. Maybe less if you can deal with living in a $500 truck camper and purchase your plane ticket months in advance. Driving is the cheapest way. If your vehicle won’t make the trip then I suggest selling it and buy when you get here. For the cost of ferrying a truck, you could buy a camper and truck here and save a grand. As long as you have money to put down, you can get a used truck on payments to a private individual. Before you dismiss my ideas, I would appreciate being able to communicate about the details of them.

Just figure all of the angles and work out what’s best for you and your family. Wish I could tell you where you could live cheaply so you could save money and get out of the stressful situation that you’re in. The more I look into slab city, the rougher it looks, don’t know if that’s safe.

As for “free” rent. Technically I am asking that people help with some of the cost of building their cabin that will stay on the property so maybe it’s not free. Also I would like those that can to help on my land for a couple of projects. I need to put in a driveway and of course the cabins but that’s it. It’s not required though.

I’ll be going to town twice a week starting this Thursday so if you’d like for me to call I can. It’s easier then because of better reception.


Who’s “this” California onlooker, you’re talking about?
