Perseverance pays off for Cromie: Knee injury slows down but doesn’t stop Mayfield cross country skier

By ADAM SHINDER For the Express A knee injury kept Mayfield High School junior Emily Cromie from reaching her biggest goals during the winter nordic ski season, but the way she finished her campaign was a more than adequate consolation prize. Cromie’s primary goal entering the winter was to qualify for the junior national championships in cross country skiing, but a knee injury at midseason cost her three weeks of competition and forced her to miss several national qualifying events.  ...

B-P prepping for upcoming Myrtle Beach trip

By ADAM SHINDER For the Express TOWN OF BROADALBIN -- In at least one way, the outdoor portion of the Broadalbin-Perth Patriots' baseball practice Monday afternoon resembled a classic neighborhood pickup game.

Yet, wit ...

Conservation council president seeking input by Dick Nelson

I don't know if its the reasonably priced entry fee or the prize structure that draws ice fishermen to the Fuel N' Food ice fishing events, but whatever it is, the Mayfield convenience store has found the formula for success. Last month, more than 1,700 ice anglers signed up for the sixth annual Walleye Challenged and just this past weekend more than 1,400 participated in FNF's 17th annual Weekend-Long Ice Fishing Contest. Granted, many of the participants are from Fulton and Montgomery counties ...

Abolish the APA Act To the editor: The Adirondack Park Agency Act (APA Act) 1973, authorizing the Adirondack Park Agency (APA) to mandate how the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) shall manage Forest Preserve state land in the Adirondack Park, violates Article XVI of the State Constitution, and is therefore illegal legislation. Law adopted into the Constitution in 1895, specifically authorizes only the DEC to make all rules and regulations for public use of the Forest Preserve. The ...

Why is state ignoring Fulton County? Dear Editor: On Thursday, December 11, Governor Cuomo announced the latest 2014 grant awards from New York State's Regional Economic Development Councils, including 62 projects in the Mohawk Valley Region.
