The camp's press release leaves a lot to be desired. The camp opened without asking for a tax exemption. As a matter of fact the camp many times said that they wanted to be a good neighbor and would not ask for an exemption. They then started construction on the gym building, 25,000 sq. feet, without permits, without the inspections for footing connections, without the special inspections for steel construction, without complete engineered drawings. Then they allowed children to use the gym without the proper firewalls, without sprinklers and without a Certificate of Occupancy. They should not only pay taxes, but should be fined hundreds of thousands of dollars for such a blatant risk of children's lives.

The above debate is interesting to me because the action taken by the Schoharie County Board of Supervisors was not fully debated. It did not originate in a committee, as is normal, and it was not reviewed by our County Attorney. Schoharie Supervisor Gene Milone with an eloquent presentation stampeded a majority of the Board of Supervisors into approving this motion. Isn't this exactly what we are complaining about with the passage of the SAFE ACT? I could not violate our ethics laws or the oath of office that I took to "support the constitution of the United States, and the constitution of the State of New York, and that I will faithfully discharge the duties of the office of Supervisor" to vote for a motion that probably is only grandstanding, but if carried out amounts to civil disobedience. This is exactly how those of us who own firearms get labeled as "gun nuts". Furthermore, this kind of hysteria dilutes the message in the well thought out resolutions that I voted for that ask the State Legislature to revisit, fully debate and to refine the SAFE ACT so that it actually does add some increased level of insurance that the mentally unstable do not get anywhere near a gun.

When you take on the political bosses you expect to get hammered in kind and then some. In the same week the State took away some of my second amendment rights, Mr. Cherry declared that I have no first amendment right to comment on his actions by using the internet and should not be writing here according to him. Since I broke his rules he won't talk to me - so schoolyard. Yes, I am burdened with vitriol and also dismayed, but I am determined. I am not anonymous these words are written by my hand, Daniel Singletary member of the Schoharie County Board of Supervisors.
