Pitched Preservation Battle to Save New York’s Valley Forge
By Michael Boyajian
There is a scene in a Sherlock Holmes story where Holmes turns to Watson as their train passes through a country village and says this is where the real crimes take place. That might be the story of the scenic Hudson Valley Town of Fishkill where preservationists under the direction of Mara Farrell and the Friends of the Fishkill Supply Depot ( http://www.fishkillsupplydepot.org/ ) along with the likes of Senator Chuck Schumer are engaged in a pitched battle to save New York’s Valley Forge from the back hoes of commercial developers.
Like most of their Democratic Senate colleagues, New York Sens. Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand avoided town halls in favor of what they say are more representative events.

What's Super Bowl Sunday like for a candidate with an election in 2 days? For Craig Johnson (D-WFP), running in the Feb 6 special election for an open NY State Senate seat means you find a way to keep campaigning all day long.Starting this morning, Johnson launched the "Moving New York Forward - 33 Stops in 33 Hours" tour. He's campaigning in every one of the 33 villages in the Seventh District from this morning until the election starts, hitting morning bagel stops and popular lunch hour spots and attending religious services and Super Bowl parties.
Governor Eliot Spitzer and U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer will campaign with Craig Johnson at different stops during the day. Here's the Johnson campaign's Sunday Schedule:
Chuck Schumer, whose new book's zany authenticity has helped win it better reviews than the usual unreadable political tomes, has also got a bit of attention for his reliance on an imaginary family, the Baileys of Massapequa, Long Island, to shape his views on policy.
