This the most poorly thought-out and downright dangerous talk I’ve ever read. One cannot simply secede from New York State legally and steal land owned by the people of New York. The irony of that...

I think perhaps read the post directly preceding I was responding to. It directly talks about raising funds and supporting a militia to secede from NY? It's not clear. Either way it would be seen...

I hate to say this, but even the mention of this is bordering on treason.

Second, it would never happen. The Adirondacks don't have resources. Any resistance could be starved out within a year....

Perhaps one other idea I have as well from the state level would be to provide (extremely) low interest loans or grants for housing to those who work in the park.

This then becomes less...

It varies all over, but many places I've researched are not this way wrt to tax rates.

Either way, I think some are missing the point that raising taxes or should I say, perhaps equalizing taxes...

Right - it's the expense of the depth and then the coil, which as I was looking was pretty high. And of course the unit itself.

I was mentioning battery (home) as a backup to grid in the event...

Not sure if I'm going to bother to go back and fix my images, but I visited here again today and leaves were out.

I was able to get a bit more information here - the trees that I thought were...

Yeah, your area has the incentives - I think it's because you don't have any NG resources there. The issue is similar in the Adirondacks but I'm not sure if the wells are going to be as easy to...

Fuel oil is a concern. We need to get off that stuff although I’m sure a number of people in the region are invested in this and the alternatives are not cheap.

I found it interesting that...

Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to villainize these people, only promote that the towns and counties have some control over this, and can and should exercise this. If the state steps in it's...

I bet they'd catch a few at Tony Harper's too.


I really just posted to harass TCD. But we all know it's fun to stay at the YMCA (https://youtu.be/CS9OO0S5w2k).

I think the current issue is quite the opposite- it’s people from downstate who have immense purchasing power relative to those who must “serve” them in the Adirondacks. It’s rampant capitalism. ...

All the more reason for the towns to try to control it - taxes are very low in the Adirondacks compared to the rest of the state.

I still advocate the Robin Hood method as the best...

I've honestly never had UC - but there's a running gag (amongst other NYers) at how terrible it is.

Government subsidized housing? Hmmm... that sounds like communism to me. Not exactly what I was expecting to hear from TCD ;)


The hardcore free market supporter would say let it be. ...

What are the trees doing?

In western NY we've already had the red maples blossom and wilt - Silver maples are just starting to flower and cherries are starting to pop their leaves.

I thought it was my computer at first and tried to flush it out, but it happens on my phone as well (iPhone). It's definitely something with this webpage.

There wasn't much undergrowth at all yet - perhaps I was a bit early, I plan to check again in a couple weeks.

Beech bark disease is definitely present, but not overly so. ...
