Patch Wants to Hear Your Predicament

Our new column asks what's pestering you, seeks remedies

Patch has a new column, and it's aiming to resolve, settle and amend whatever is pestering you.

Or, at the very least, give you a place to vent.

What's Pestering Patch will take your complaints—and none are too small—and get to the bottom of them. Is there a on your street? Is the school bus swinging by your corner five minutes too late? See a funky item on your tax bill? Mouth off to Patch and we'll get to the bottom of it.

Each week, we'll post the issues that are perturbing readers. We'll also research and investigate each complaint, speaking with village officials, experts and others to track down some closure for you.

Have something to share? E-mail kevin@patch.com, or call (845) 313-7933.

Wendy's Current Top 5 Local Annoyances: 1- trying to make a left turn onto High Ave from Midland facing the direction of the hospital (i've waited thru 3 entire lights at times since there is no arrow and i don't want to be the jerk that cuts other drivers off) 2- the new muni meters 3- the difficulties for residents living in the center of town who wish to recycle 4- cyclists (or lack of room on the road for them) on dangerous roads such as 9W and Tweed Blvd. 5- early morning leaf blowers BONUS Annoyance: the 4 way stop at the top of High Ave & Polhemus that tooooo many drivers think is only a 3 way stop

This is perfect. I am really steamed that when my family offered my mother's portrait to the Nyack Hospital as a gift (she is the late, great Dr. Martha M. MacGuffie) they insisted that we create a capital building fund to raise money for the hospital. My mother gave 60+ years of her life to that hospital. She brought millions of dollars of business there, too. We have no money or legacy at her passing. She was a humanitarian who gave away everything she had. She is the Mother Theresa of our community and Nyack hospital thinks they are owed some kind of cash tribute just to commemorate a woman who showed other women what it was possible to do in one's life. I am beyond disgusted and hoping that other people will complain to the hospital.

I have another one. Why does the sidewalk on the east side of North Broadway not extend all the way to the entrance to Hook Mountain. It would be really nice, and a lot safer if it did.
