Postal Service Renews Huletts Post Office Lease

April 2nd, 2018 · Comments Off

The Huletts Landing Post Office.

I’m happy to report that the U.S. Postal Service has renewed the lease for the Huletts Post Office for an additional 5 years, through 2023. So thank you to all those who purchase stamps and postage there. The Postal Service recognized the benefit it brings to the community and actually renewed the lease early.

As I document in my book, Huletts Landing on Lake George, the first application for a Post Office was made in 1874 and is the first historical document where the area is designated as Huletts Landing. While the actual Post Office building has occupied different locations since it first arrived, it is an added benefit to the community and its central location makes it convenient for everyone.

Please keep buying your stamps and postage in Huletts.

Happy Easter!

April 1st, 2018 · Comments Off

Noli me tangere (Do not touch me) c. 1630 Jan Brueghel the Younger (Jan Brueghel the Younger [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons) (Click image to see larger view.)

This scene by Jan Brueghel the Younger, depicts Christ and Mary Magdalene on Easter Sunday. This Latin expression means “don’t touch me” or “don’t hold me back”. Lamenting over Christ’s death, Mary Magdalene sees him before her without knowing it’s him: she thinks he’s the gardener. Jesus says to her: “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?” Supposing him to be the gardener, she said to him: “Sir, if you have carried Him away, tell me where you have laid Him, and I will take Him away.” In this episode, Jesus prevents Mary Magdalene from touching him: he must first ascend to Heaven. Then Mary Magdalene says to the disciples: “I have seen the Lord and this is what he said.”

Wishing you much much happiness and joy as the world celebrates Easter today.

Champlain Power Express Hopes to Lay Power Line Through Dresden

March 5th, 2018 · Comments Off

The Champlain Power Express is a project you will hear about over the next few months as the developers hope to run an underground electricity transmission line 333 miles from a substation in Canada to a substation in Queens New York, with the goal of supplying additional power to New York City.

The project has been years in the works, starting in 2009. The proposed route would take the line underground through Dresden along state Route 22. It would only carry electricity that would be generated almost exclusively in hydroelectric plants in Canada. It would not carry gas, fuel oil or other hazardous materials.

The proposed route would take the planned transmission line underground through Dresden to Whitehall near the South Bay bridge.

The project would bring additional tax revenue to the Town of Dresden, Washington county and the Whitehall school district because the transmission line becomes a taxable asset when it is placed in the ground. More details coming soon.

Bascue Pilots 4-Man Bobsled to Top Ten Olympic Finish

February 25th, 2018 · Comments Off

Congratulations to Codie Bascue, who piloted the top American sled to a ninth-place finish in the 4-man bobsled.

From NBC’s coverage:

Bascue led the top American sled with two solid runs on the second day of competition. Top U.S. pilot Steve Holcomb, who won gold in 2010 and double bronze in 2014, passed away in 2017, and Bascue filled in valiantly. He couldn’t put together a medal run, but still piloted his sled to a top-10 finish.
