To the editor:
The pseudo-environmental groups opposed to the Adirondack Club and Resort continue to sink to new lows. They have had eight years to gather facts and present their case, both to the Adirondack Park Agency and the public from which they solicit their funding. As one who has given thousands to real environmental groups such as Greenpeace, I find their tactics dishonest.
They should have done more than a cursory one-day, if that, inspection by their "expert" witness regarding environmental concerns on the property. Intellectual honesty from them is sorely lacking. They expect and demand the ACR to torpedo its own project - ridiculous. They believe they have a right to design the project - arrogant and pompous. And what of the testimony they produced to derail the ACR? The busy state boat dock in Tupper? Folks, I've been to many busy boat docks in numerous states and waterways, and if they had done any research or observation at all and not relied on dubious testimony from an unexpert witness, they would logically have concluded this is not a busy boat dock.
They are simply not to be believed, and their true motives for attempting to squash this development, which has the potential to help so many, remains in question. The environmental case against the ACR presented by them has been pathetic, and they have no one to blame but themselves for this.
