    I have now been able to access the responses sent to dec re their plan to remove debar pond lodge and replace it with day use pavilion. It seems that most responses are saying that people want the existing properties to remain which I am also in favor of. I believe in conjunction with town of Duane,county , state and non profit group homeward bound and finally general public we can find a way to save this lovely place as it should be. Don’t tear this down!!

    Do we as Americans march across the country removing all statues, monuments, buildings that make up history? Does political correctness rule our entire lives and history? Keep the lodge intact. it is part of the Adirondack history.
