Big turnout for GSLFF fishing contest by Dick Nelson

It’s hard to say if there were more people inside Northville’s Sport Island Pub last Saturday or outside on the pub’s dining deck. There was even a crowd of people sunning themselves on the beach taking full advantage of the official start of summer. Whatever it was, a good many of them eventually found their way over to the Great Sacandaga Lake Fisheries Federation’s measuring tent to watch participants bring in their catch during the groups 23rd Annual Summer Fishing Co ...

Black bass are back on the hook by Dick Nelson

I don’t know if the third Saturday in June was chosen as the opening of the black bass fishing season because of the proximity to the official start of summer or because spawning largemouth and smallmouth bass are generally off the nest, but whatever the reason the season is now open across the state. There is little doubt that when the bass fishing season opened Saturday thousands of bass fishermen were sitting on the edge of their swivel seats, casting everything from shiners and nightcr ...

Letters to the Editor - 06/13/2014

Library not run efficiently To the editor: I feel compelled to respond to Marilyn Sargent’s inaccurate statements regarding my recent letter to the editor. Asserting that I am a “flatlander” may invoke some sort of class warfare satisfaction for Ms. Sargent, but the fact is I am a Northville school district taxpayer (which she is not) and I am concerned. I simply question whether the tax dollars supporting the library are being spent wisely. Whether she agrees with me or not, ...

Letter to the Editor - 05/16/2014

Fix the runaway budget problem To the editor: Tax funded institutions are micro-socialistic entities and like socialistic nations who create supporters that are either privileged by or dependent on the system to protect it. This support is not deterred by logic, reality or necessity it just wants the system to go on and those on the inside reap the personal benefits of it. They do not reflect the trials and tribulations that the rest of the population has to deal with on a daily basis. This is ...

Letter to the Editor - 05/09/2014

Looking at the library budget To the editor: I would like to respond to the informative letters to the editor by Mark Collins which appeared in the Sacandaga Express entitled “School spending is out of control” and “Getting our money's worth.” If Mr. Collins thinks that “school spending is out of control” then he should look very closely at the budget being proposed by the board of trustees of the Northville Public Library. The budget is on the ballot of the ...
