To the Editor:
Shawn Ryan’s article about the NYCO land swap vote in the Sept. 21 issue is completely unbalanced. Everyone is entitled to her or his opinion but a newspaper should present both sides of an issue. There is no mention of the groups opposed to the constitutional amendment (Protect the Adirondacks and Adirondack Wild). Nor is Oak Hill discussed, NYCO’s other mine with an expected life of 16 years or more. It appears NYCO simply wants more land and more profit at the expense of “forever wild” forest.
No matter how you look at it, there will be another strip mine scarring the Jay Wilderness for many years if the amendment passes.
