Valley Viewpoints: The dominos are lining up

by Oswego County Legislator James Karasek

When I was a child, toys were a simpler past-time than they are today. We had a set of dominos that was kept in the lower desk drawer and every now and then I would get them out and stand them on end.  It was a simple task to push the first one and see them all fall.

It took practice and it took time to get them to stand up on end and yet make sure the spacing was correct. The actual time it took for them to fall was quick, but you had to have everything in place just right to make it work.

I later came to appreciate the “bones” for what they were, the dots become strategy and the slap of the game piece on the table was the” in your face” play that I felt sure was the winning move.

If you have followed the press as of late, Oswego County has entered a new era on a couple of fronts.

The first being that the team work of the DSS, the resources of our law enforcement officials on every level and a district attorney who is committed to engagement have “knocked down” several individuals that have committed public assistance fraud.
