    Outstanding sleuthing and reporting by Gwen Craig on Learning from the 1996 environmental bond act. A small thing: the print edition’s outstanding aerial photo by Nancie Battaglia of lands and lakes at Whitney Park is captioned incorrectly. Plumley Pond is said to be in the foreground and Raquette Lake in the background. If that is Plumley Pond in the foreground then the background lake is Forked Lake, not Raquette Lake. Also, the portion of Whitney shown in this photo foreground remains private land. The 15000 acres acquired and classified the William C. Whitney Wilderness are north of this area at Little Tupper Lake.
