In answer to my own question, nope, it looks like they are owned by a Greek Company.

Prop 5 allows a mining company to dig into 200 acres of a forest preserve. The acres added to the preserve are supposed to make up for that. They conveniently forget to mention this. Does that mining company have ties to the Ogden Co, owners of the P-J?

As a frequent visitor to the ADK, I know the Raquette Lake area well. I will certainly support this proposal as that beautiful area is a result of several actions like what is being described.

Yes CREDENCE and Jesus Christ wants us to sin no more. Your babble is about what. The topic is The Adirondack Park subtopic two ballot questions for voters. Not your politics. Just so you know government is us if we have poor government it's up to us to fix it. It is not someone or some nebulous thing out somewhere, government is instituted among us. Government is to serve us, it is not anathema to us. Breathe, breathe, breathe deeply! get that O2.

Well, there ya go; that's why these types are "politicians" They spend their time on the insignificant and useless (I'm sure this WILL cost money!) If a politician touches ANYTHING it costs us money (you KNOW this to be true). What we want is REDUCED spending and MUCH lower taxes,\. When these clowns create jobs, those jobs come from the sucker taxpayers. NO gain there; in fact it is a loss. Politicians....STAY HOME; we will pay you to stay OUT OF SESSION! That alone will save countless billions. Stay Home !!!

We travel regularly to the Adirondacks and subscribe to several Adirondack-related publications. I have read about the Raquette Lake title issue and how it has been a costly and frustrating one for everyone. I also recently read an article on Prop 5 which went into some detail about the deal. The author's conclusion (the author is an well-known adirondack photographer) was that this is a win-win arrangement for both business and the local economy and for environmental concerns. I agree with the senators and will vote "yes" to help our economically struggling neighbors to the north.
