TUPPER LAKE - Signs protesting a challenge to the state Adirondack Park Agency's decision on the Adirondack Club and Resort have gone missing.
Stuart Nichols, a member of the group called Committee of Real Adirondack People, or CRAP, said there were signs posted at each entrance to Tupper Lake, but the ones on the entrance from Saranac Lake on state Route 3-30 went missing Tuesday.
The signs read "Justice for Tupper Lake" and "Shame on Protect (the Adirondacks) & the Sierra Club," two of the parties challenging the APA's decision.
A group calling itself Committee of Real Adirondack People set up these signs at entrances to Tupper Lake, protesting a lawsuit environmentalists filed against state approval of the Adirondack Club and Resort, a 700-unit development centered on the Big Tupper Ski Area.
Nichols went to Plattsburgh in the morning and, when he came back, saw that the signs on the way in were gone. He went for a drive afterward to see if the ones at the Piercefield and Long Lake entrances were still in place. They were; the Saranac Lake-ward signs were the only ones missing.
Nichols said he believes they were stolen, but he couldn't say that for sure. He noted that the signs on the way to Saranac Lake are in the most secluded spot, so they would be the easiest to steal without being noticed.
