Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.
JOURNAL NEWS SEPT. 1ST ARTICLE ON THE TOUGHMAN, HIGHLIGHTS ONLY. SOLUTION DEMANDED FOR CROTON TRIATHLON
--Locals demand traffic solution; Toughman's Dr. Izzo declined to comment.
--This year's potential traffic nightmare already has local residents
pumping fists instead of iron. They've taken their concerns before the
village board — but to no avail.
--Mayor Wiegman says: “My position is because those decisions are out of our hand, we need to
work with the race as best we can so that our police department knows
what the detours are and how to direct people,” Wiegman said. (EDITOR'S NOTE; Mayor's 2010 and 2011 proclamations are here http://bit.ly/1VdjMnq - we are "truly blessed" to have The Toughman; it's "the capstone" to our Bike Week, our village "enthusiastically embraces" nature, self improvement etc. that is embodied in the Toughman etc. Also note, Mayor Wiegman has also publicly touted the alleged economic benefits to Croton in multiple forums.)
--“This is a dangerous, disruptive event,” (Dick) Nagle said. “It disrupts lives of so many people who are not involved in the race.”

AND A HANDY GUIDE TO GETTING AROUND ON 9/13 WITH THANKS TO DICK NAGLE http://everythingcroton.blogspot.com/2015/08/toughman-update-2015-guide-to.html
FYI: SEPT. 2014 MR. NAGLE'S COMMENT AT BOARD MEETING - What I fail to
understand is how our Mayor and Board of Trustees could so easily be
taken in by Dr. Izzo’s claims that this event is somehow good for
Croton. I see absolutely no benefit in it at all for the citizens and
businesses of our village. http://www.everythingcroton.blogspot.com/2014/09/dick-nagles-92-statement-b4-board-on.html
ALSO PLS. NOTE: According to the 7/23 through 7/29/15 edition of THE GAZETTE, the board of trustees continued
to "reaffirm" their belief that hosting this event is positive for the
village economically and for its image.
