New party forms in wake of court rulings
From The Daily Mail
CATSKILL - Republicans have set up a new political party to get Linda Overbaugh elected to one of the four seats for Greene County Legislature District No. 1. Overbaugh, Karen Deyo, Keith Valentine, and Joseph Izzo are setting up The Have A Voice Party and need 188 registered voters' signatures to get on the ballot. They have set up party headquarters at 347 Main St., Catskill, the Day & Holt building, and registered voters will stop by. This all comes after the wrong Linda Overbaugh (there are two in Catskill) was listed on petitions for the Republican ticket, Democrats challenged the petition, and a judge excluded Overbaugh from the GOP line.

Hudson dredging resumes -- slowly
From Albany Times-Union
General Electric resumed its clean-up of PCB's in the Hudson River, after high levels of the chemical in the river prompted a four-day shutdown. The story says, "The unsafe PCB levels were found about 20 miles upriver from drinking water intakes used by the towns of Waterford and Halfmoon. Neither town has used the intakes since dredging began; both are using water purchased from Troy. Despite the PCB spikes upriver, chemical levels at the intakes have remained well within the safety standard."
