Nothing is new at the Marcy "Nanotech" site . . . just more finger pointing (away from our local leaders, of course) as an excuse why we've seen no results.
I've harped on EDGE's "too little too late actions" for years. The foolishness of EDGE's decision to shelve its wetlands permit application in 2002 was pointed out to local officials, but either they thought they knew better or they were told what to do. Now the lack of progress is somehow the Army Corps of Engineers' fault? This story comes conveniently on the heels of the story about the IBM packing plant . . . which suggested that we might not land that facility either. Tonight's story is nothing more than a transparent attempt to shift blame from the responsible parties.
The Army Corps of Engineers is being used as a scapegoat for another failure of local leadership.
