A scenic area is home to an ugly fight

Outside Looking In By Perry White

I have received a number of emails requesting that I write a column on the brouhaha surrounding the Thousand Islands regional application for designation as a Scenic Area of Statewide Significance — a process that has taken the fitting name SASS. It has a lot of people fired up, both those who see the designation as the best way to preserve the scenic wonderland that is the Thousand Islands, and those who view it as yet more meddling in local affairs by that old bogeyman, the State.

Note: This commentary by Perry White has been posted twice on the Watertown Daily Times website, each with different titles and comments. Title links to each below
