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 ...

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 ...

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. Gambling can be a fun activity for adults, when done responsibly. We are writing this letter because we are concerned with youth and “problem gambling” and feel we have information for parents that can be helpful. It’s important to first understand what gambling is. Webster’s Dictionary defines gambling as, “to stake or ...

Our opinion

It’s well past time to let the cat out of the bag. Or, in the seemingly never-ending case of the exotic animals in Mayfield, it’s time for their owner to wave the white flag and move on.

He has fought — tooth and nail — a pack of neighborhood complaints and a litter of legal challenges, all in an attempt to keep th ...

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, ...
