Good week of practice for B-P following exciting win

By MICHAEL KELLY For the Express BROADALBIN -- A miraculous play handed the Broadalbin-Perth football team a memorable Week 1 victory against Cohoes, but the Patriots know this week's set of practices are critical.

Wildfires rare in New York’s forests by Dick Nelson

Wind, rain and fire are probably the three most devastating elements people have to deal with, regardless of what part of the globe in which they live. And, when it comes to wildfires, the devastation can go way beyond the loss of thousands of acres of forest land, especially when it spreads out of control and starts burning up residential areas. It happens much too frequently in Arizona, California, Oregon and other western and northwestern states. What surprises me, is that it doesn't happen j ...

Time to remove exotic animals

After years of doing battle with the town of Mayfield in New York State courts, and losing every step of the way, it’s time for the town to enforce its cease and desist order against exotic animal business owner Steve Salton. Mr. Salton has kept at least three full-grown tigers and two leopards in a back yard enclosure in an R-1 residential district for several years and charged money to exhibit them. In June 2011, Mayfield town code enforcement officer Michael Stewart notified Salton that ...

Talk to your kids about gambling To the editor: Before you read this article it is only fair to state that we are neither for nor against gambling.

As has been documented on numerous occasions in the past three years, Mayfield resident Steven Salton keeps three tigers and two leopards at his Route 30 home. He has fought — tooth and nail — a pack of neighborhood complaints and a litter of legal challenges, all in an attempt to keep th ...
