    I had trouble reading the 40 page PDF download. Here’s a link to the cached version. Announcement here:

    Also tripped over this little gem from a local politician writing October 2015: Misinformation in Fishkill

    The peasants were mighty displeased about the Watchtower land purchase being removed from the tax rolls. It became a political football at the time. Wonder how they’ll feel about it becoming a private waterfront $anctuary for “religious order” recreation?
