Part 1 - The Letter List

Explanation of list: The following letters, pages 1 - 121 of a package of comment letters received from the APA, were the basis of the study that I did, which was published as "'Untouched' Lake Shore - The Adirondack Park Agency's Reply to a Freedom of Information Request Chronicles the Coordinated Opposition to a Single Log House."

Item A (Covering letter of reply to LaGrasse FOIL request): Mitchell Goroski, Senior Attorney, APA, to Carol W. LaGrasse, September 7, 2001. (This letter incorrectly states, "...I enclose copies of 121 letters." Actually enclosed were copies of letters totaling 121 pages.)

Item B (Follow-up letter): Brian M. Ford, Records Access Officer, APA, to Carol W. LaGrasse, September 19, 2001, stating that 121 pages were attached previously.

Note:
A supplement to the above letters was sent on September 21, 2001 with a cover letter by APA Senior Attorney Mitchell Goroski, noting that it was a "supplement to my September 7 transmittal of 121 letters." (This was an incorrect total for the number of previously submitted letters. The total of "121" applies to pages of letters attached previously, not the number of letters.) He noted that he enclosed 6 more letters. However, my study was already finished and these were not included in the study. In any case, these letters were not applicable because they were written after the August APA meeting when the Commissioners voted to go to public hearing, which was the cutoff point of my study.
(The first letter attached on September 21 was from Bernard Ruf, who had already written, and the next from John Nelson. Next was William D. Hutchens' cover letter, enclosing a joint letter from Jim Washburn and Donna Maloney Washburn, and another from R.E. Field, both of these letters from earlier letter writers. The next two were the requests for party status from the Residents Committee to Protect the Adirondacks and The Adirondack Council. Finally, there was another letter from Henry Kinosian.) - CWL
