Lost and Found: Mid July Edition

From good samaritan Jim Bohleber:

"I was out fishing last night (Thursday) when I came upon this kayak. It is a Pelican Trailblazer 100. It was floating about 300 or 400 yards offshore, approx. opposite The Landings, or Tamaracbeach. (northwest area of lake) If anybody thinks it is theirs, they can call me at 631-987-8780. They should be able to give me details on the life vest that was in the bow area".

The Future of Frontier Town

The creator of the video above puts forth some rather provocative ideas about the future of the space occupied by the crumbling remains of North Hudson's Frontier Town. July 28 is the deadline the State of New York is accepting applications for ideas and proposals to redevelop this area, hoping for a spark that will ignite an economic jump start for jobs and the overall economy of North Hudson and surrounding area, including Schroon. An equestrian center, camping sites, horse and snowmobile trials have been proposed. Schroon's Paradox Brewrery has already announced plans to move to the site. What are your thoughts about how this area should be developed? Tell us in comments.
