Ear to the Ground

The word is circulating that city attorney Cheryl Roberts, who resigned her position with the law firm of Rapport Meyers last August, has now resigned her position with the City of Hudson. This information will very likely be confirmed or refuted tomorrow night when we see who is sitting to the left of Council president Don Moore on the dais at the Common Council meeting, which begins at 7 p.m.

  1. My prediction: attorney Carl Whitbeck to the rescue. Who else?

    To prepare for this eventuality, people must drive up Mt. Merino tomorrow and have a look from the first curve into the nearly clear-cut forest down to the tidal marsh.

    Gigantic oaks and old hemlocks are now lying out across the marsh, and only to improve the view from a house that's not even built yet (presumably Mr. Whitbecks' next house).

    The NYS Department of Environmental Conservation couldn't care less. They're calling the slaughter "silviculture," which by their own definition it isn't:

    "clear-cutting and the harvesting of timber as a one-time, non-recurring practice, is not considered an exempt silvicultural activity under 40 CFR 122.27 ..."

    Please go have a look, and then welcome the new boss who's WORSE than the old boss.

    God help us; we're out of the frying pan and into the fire.
