    The names and the faces change, but the Albany line is always the same. Parade only certain “public interest groups” in front of these legislative dog and pony media shows to fit their narrative and agenda. Meanwhile, other Park user groups are marginalized and sent to the back of the bus.

    The comments of retired forest ranger Scott van Laer, found in Gwendolyn Craig’s companion piece of 2/2/22 about ranger staffing are spot-on. Scott righty concludes; “Add more rangers to adequately distribute the emergency work load and better protect the park and its users.”

    Let’s all hope that the Hochul administration will take Scott’s words of wisdom – and his experience – under advisement and make the improvements being called for from so many well informed sources.

    Modernizing the ranger force now is needed in order to prepare for multiple difficult challenges that lie ahead, and that need must not be postponed.
