Actually a third man with area ties was honored by the organization, too. Rich Templeton, CEO of Texas Instruments, is a Union College graduate ~1987:

As I recall, Steve Schonwetter was a terrific runner in high school at Linton High. Seems to me he was the fastest schoolboy miler in the nation one year in the late 1960s, with a time of ~4:10. Anyone remember?

To my mind the only valid reason to have water restrictions in place is to conserve water when there's a threat of depleting it. Having a set of standing water restrictions in a town like Niskayuna makes no sense to me, because there's no water shortage. The town lies along the shores of a big river, after all. If sediment in the pipes is being disturbed then the town should budget for changing filters more often (or whatever may be needed) to maintain water quality in times of heavy flow. And before town officials complain about the cost needed to do that, let me remind them of the plowing/salt savings they enjoyed as a result of last winter's light snowfall. People live in suburbs like Niskayuna, in part, to enjoy greenery.

Hurting an economic engine in the name of . . .economic development. Yeah, that makes sense.

This is an apt metaphor for what's going on in our country, don't you think?
