Interesting that McCarthy doesn't address the misconduct and maladministration claims. They can dodge it in the press ,but not in NYS Supreme Court. If I was John Scherer or Mark Kazmierczak, I'd be more than a little nervous knowing I was going to have to testify in front of a SC judge on this matter.

The airport already accepts private jets, as cited in the Paisley issue, or anyone who looks skyward during track season knows. So if things remain the same, the problem still exists. And trees grow, as will the problem if not dealt with.

Global warming. I mean global climate change.

I have no issue with this position, and I'm not sure if this column is supposed to represent "opinion" or "reporting". But since the article lists the author as a "Gazette Reporter", it would have been nice to include some other facts, like recent polling showing 71% of respondents are against the name change, down from 89% in 1992. That doesn't make them right, but it does make MacAdam wrong when he states the "groundswell of support" to change the name. The fact is, less than 1 in 4 polled want the name changed. Sure, it is popular to pile on the "Off with Dan Snyder's Billionaire Head" bandwagon, but this is a lazy article that has been written a hundred times. If you want to read something interesting, check out Hayley Munguia's excellent reporting on the 2,128 other teams that use Indian nicknames. Hayley takes the same position, but bothers to do a little balanced reporting to back up the article's position. I am boycotting the use of the Redskins name, as well as lazy, "me too" reporters like Mike MacAdams.

I don't see how tight labor markets in VT and MN would be attractive to businesses. The opposite, if anything.

What about the Gazette poll that showed 80% didn't agree with the NYRA decision? Does that not reflect local opinion either?

This is a state problem, not a Global Foundries problem. Yes, they are the primary user of the roads, although not the only user as Sauaville claims. We use the athletic fields in their all the time.

Yes, they fought their assessment, but a) that has nothing to do with this infrastructure issue and b) who is to say that the towns' initial assessments were fair? At the end of the day, what other businesses in Malta pay for the roads to support their existence? Is Hannaford going to pay for the new traffic circle at Exit 11? Of course not.

Malta better not screw this up. In a state with little going for it economically, we need those 6,700 jobs. If you want to look at trees, there is a 6 million acre park a half hour to your north.

Just what we need; a less efficient way to burn fossil fuels. Meh...
