New Genealogy Section

This week Issues takes our readers to the Bartlett Cemetery and The Sisson Cemetery. We have also updated our Joshua Palmerton genealogy and added a partial genealogy of Smith Bartlett.

Last week Issues took our readers to the Clear Creek Friends Cemetery, where we found a corn field planted on what has been noted as the burial ground of "more than 300 area residents." We have located a second cemetery lying amidst debris and ruin. This, the Allbee Cemetery cemetery will be the focus of next week's genealogical profile.

We, at Issues have learned that New York is the most populous of the six states (including, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, New Jersey, and Wyoming) in which cemeteries are required to be operated only on a non-profit basis. New York State's historical not for profit cemetery structure "for the mutual benefit of plot owners therein" is based upon the following aims:

  1. to protect the well-being of its citizens;
  2. to promote the public welfare;
  3. to prevent cemeteries from falling into disrepair and dilapidation; and
  4. to prevent cemeteries from becoming a burden upon the community. "for the mutual benefit of plot owners therein." Not-for-Profit Corporation Law (N-PCL) 1501.

Utilizing this information, Issues will be making an appeal to the local town board at an upcoming meeting, August 5, 2002, in hopes of rectifying the disregard to local cemeteries. We shall also continue to research in hopes of learning of the Town ancestors who are buried beneath the corn field and/or rubble. We shall continuously keep our readers informed of our progress

Issues, due to the diligence of our readers and supporters, has made a great leap in The Site Fights. We missed the Dome by one point, but never fret, we'll just start at the bottom and work our way up! So, if you're feeling the urge please drop in and give us a vote.

Issues Was Named Fighter of The Month!!!!

Collins Center Water Update

Issues is continuing research in the area of whether or not our local water supply is the source of the contaminent that is making our residents ill. This coming week, two local residents have agreed to be tested for lead poisoning in regards to their health problems. An EPA testing of the area water supply indicated the following:

  1. Water District #1 & #2 serves 1300 individuals sited in 2001 for a repeat violation of coliform in the water
  2. Water District #3 serving 760 individuals in 2001 sited for a repeat violation of coliform in the water
  3. Water District #4 serving 73 individuals, no violations
  4. Collins Correctional Facility has been sited for excess TTHM contaminant levels since 1994

We shall continue to monitor and study this topic. This article will be continued during the week

 

E-Petitions

In the meantime, Issues felt the necessity to address the topic of e-petitions.Yet another e-petition is circulating the Internet. While Issues realizes that many sign and continue to relay these petitions, we felt it was time to take a look at what actually happens to the petitions, as well as a bit of information regarding the present petition and some "TRUE" stories to make our readers think....Continued
