ACR in the NYT
February 9, 2012 - Jessica Collier
It looks like pretty much all of Tupper Lake has already linked to it from Facebook already, but the New York Times is running a story today that's a pretty good broad overview of the ACR story up to this point.
It seems pretty even-handed, which is nice. Sometimes downstate publications seem to lean too heavily on the PR they're spoon-fed from environmental groups that have a big presence in Albany.
What did you think of the story? Do you have any problems with how it was told?
Richard Brummel, the activist who was protesting outside during the January APA meeting sessions, was concerned because he didn't think the rest of the state knew enough about the project, and if they did, they would be upset that the APA approved it. Should there have been more of this kind of state-wide press before the APA decision was made?
How much of a say should the rest of the state have in planning projects for the Adirondacks? I know many readers of this blog think that it should be entirely up to the local government entities and get upset with people from out of the area "meddling," but it IS a state park. How do you find the right balance? Do we have it now?
