    Dear Ms. Ormsbee et. al: Thank you for sharing all the coverage! I am dismayed, as are the Adirondack Council and PROTECT! the Adirondacks, with the Adirondack Park Agency and, as you put it, their “land-use plans.” Land-use, i.e., development, seems to be all the agency is about these days. Also, I got a flyer from the Adirondack Foundation, which I have supported in the past, with a picture on the front of a clearing in a forest, with trees cleared for some sort of human development. I am all for helping with the housing shortage, but not clearing trees in the forest! And, of course, there is the failure of the DEC and APA to abide by the high-court decision against clearing trails for snowmobiles; and refusing to study lake-boat capacity. All ‘to hell in a hand-basket’!

    Best regards, Seymour

    P.S., having taken a flight tour over the Little Big Horn while working for the Northern Cheyenne, I love the name of the joint “Custard’s Last Stand”!

    I am a geologist and environmental analyst and environmental educator (BS, AAS, EINS, CALS). I DON’T KNOW WHY YOU ARE NOT CALLING THE ADIRONDACKS THE ADIRONDACK DOME! RISING FOR 120 MILLION YEARS FROM A MAGMATIC HOTSPOT! THE ANORTHOSITE ON MT. MARCY AND WHITEFACE IS IDENTICAL TO THE LITHOLOGY OF HIGHLANDS OF THE MOON AND ARE 1.5 BILLION YEARS OLD!
