NO GOOD NEWS FROM THE NORTH

BY GEORGE

 

DAMIAN HAS PACKED UP AND LEFT

  MAN LEAVES STATE FOR NEW HAMPSHIRE AFTER LOSING CENTURY OLD FAMILY HOME AT COUNTY AUCTION,   (ALSO 27 OTHER PROPERTIES OWNED BY PERMANENT RESIDENTS OF WASHINGTON COUNTY)  THE  OWNER SAID, “I NEED TO LET IT GO”  I TRIED TO COME UP WITH THE MONEY BY BUDGETING,  BORROWING AND PLEADING,  BUT THIS WAS NOT THE FIRST TIME  I’D HAD PROBLEMS PAYING THE TAXES,  IN THE PAST I HAD MANAGED TO KEEP MY HOME, BUT THIS TIME IT WAS NOT TO BE..

  THE TOTAL REALIZED FROM THE SALE OF 28 HOMES AND LOTS WAS $394,288. FOR THE COUNTY.  THAT’S LESS THAN $ 15,000 A FAMILY TO RID OUR STATE OF LONG TIME  PERMANENT  RESIDENTS.

 

CLOSED

BRIDGE TO VERMONT MAY CAUSE EXODUS    

   CITIZENS OF NORTHERN NEW YORK ARE SIMPLY FURIOUS,  ASKING, “WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO OUR TAX DOLLARS???……..”   WE HAVE BEEN PAYING EXORBITANT  PROPERTY TAXES FOR TOO LONG,  AND NOW ,  TOO LATE,  WE LEARN THAT OUR STATE HAS NEGLECTED TO KEEP  OUR ONLY COMMUTER ROUTE TO VERMONT  UNDER CAREFUL INSPECTION. 

    FOR A HUGE PORTION OF OUR NORTHERN  NEW YORK  POPULATION, THE ONLY MEANS OF INCOME IS  WORKING IN VERMONT  THESE PEOPLE ARE NOW CONSIDERING  MOVING TO VERMONT ,  ( AFTER ALL, A  3 TO 4 HOUR COMMUTE, WHEN YOU HAVE CHILDREN IN NEW YORK,  AND DAY CARE TO TAKE THEM TO ETC, IS A BIT EXCESSIVE)

SOME OF THESE PEOPLE HAVE ALREADY RENTED APARTMENTS OVER THE BORDER, (THESE ARE THE ONES WHO DON’T HAVE CHILDREN AND ARE ABLE TO STAY AWAY FOR LONG PERIODS)

DONT NEGLECT THIS  IMPORTANT FACT,  MOST OF OUR HOSPITALS AND HEALTH FACILITIES ARE LOCATED IN VERMONT.

   SO  NOW…………..  IF A GOOD WIND IS BLOWING  FROM  THE NORTHEAST,  THAT’S WHERE THE  ICE FISHERMEN BETTER BE CHOPPING THEIR HOLES, BEING  AT-READY TO MOVE THEIR SHANTIES SHOULD THE WIND SHIFT………

   ADIRONDACKERS ARE RESOURCEFUL PEOPLE, BUT WE CAN’T  LIVE OFF THE LAND ANYMORE, WE HAVE TAXES TO PAY…………………

   QUESTIONS WE HAVE ??

     HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?  ARE WE NORTHERNERS A NON EXISTENT PART OF OUR STATE?

     MORE IMPORTANT,   WHERE ARE THE JOBS FOR THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE HERE??

 

UPDATE  (GLENS FALLS POST STAR, 10/9/09)

BRIDGE DEMOLITION SHOULD START BEFORE THE END OF THIS YEAR   (THAT’S JUST A QUICK 50 DAYS AWAY)  

HAS THE STATE EVER WORKED SO FAST?   WHY SUCH SPEED?     ACCORDING TO STANLEY GEE,   ACTING COMMISIONER OF THE NEW YORK STATE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION, IF REPAIRS WERE ATTEMPTED, THE SEVERITY OF DETERIORATION TO THE PIERS WOULD ENDANGER THE CONTRACTORS AND ENGINEERS.       OHMIGOD **  WHAT ABOUT ALL THE CITIZENS THAT HAVE BEEN RISKING THEIR LIVES TO GET TO WORK EACH DAY…………..  IF THE BRIDGE  IS IN DANGER OF FALLING DOWN AT ANY MOMENT,  JUST HOW DID IT GET SO BAD SINCE THE LAST INSPECTION ??

THE ADIRONDACKERS WANT ANSWERS…………

 

SPEAKING OF ADIRONDACKERS,  HERE’S AN INTERESTING OBSERVATION.

  ACCORDING TO LARRY MILLER,  (A RESEARCHER WITH THE HISTORY CHANNEL)   WHILE TRYING TO LOCATE  WORLD WAR I I  SOLDIERS FROM 1943 WHO DIED IN NORTH AFRICA,    (GOING FROM A PUBLISHED LIST OF DECEASED FROM NEW YORK AND NEW JERSEY)   HE DECIDED THAT THE FASTEST AND SUREST WAY TO LOCATE RELATIVES OF A DECEASED SOLDIER, WOULD BE TO  ” LOOK FOR SOMEONE IN THE ADIRONDACKS ,  JUST ON THE THEORY THAT  PEOPLE  WHO LIVE IN THE ADIRONDACKS DON’T MOVE AROUND VERY MUCH”

   WELL, THEY’RE MOVING NOW ………………….
