[i]Editor's Note: This story turns my stomach. Here's a "soft-spoken" twit using the power/money of government to invade every square inch of a rural county in its death throes. For what purpose? Not to help rebuild the economy for the rural people living in Montgomery County. This twit will use satellite maps in tandem with the local NGO and governments to cherry pick the prime land in this rural county as part of a Centralized Planning Enviro Dream.
I guess "trespass" is no longer an act anyone cares about anymore. Otherwise, why is no one so much as questioning what's going on in this county? The same is happening in Maine and every other state. I guess "private property" isn't anything anymore except an old phrase.
Read this whole piece, please. I very much wish I was a lawyer with the knowlege to go after these grave robbers.[/i]
Working to put county on the map

ALBANY -- John Davis is working with Mohawk Hudson Land Conservancy to create computer-generated maps showing the state of the land in the 410 square miles of Montgomery County.
The maps will help the land conservancy decide how to best acquire or otherwise protect the county's most valuable, unique/meaningful ecosystems....
Like many upstate counties, Montgomery County's population has been ebbing, down nearly 6% since 1990.
Just the right time to consider what land needs protection, Davis said.
