Hiya Crimp. It's unfortunate that things are so remarkably polarized along the ridge. From my view the source of the polarization is the conduct of Mohonk Preserve management vis-a-vis their neighbors.
So while you may have $4 in your jar, multiple Mohonk neighbors I have spoken with, people who previously intended to give cash and or significant pieces of land to the MP, have sworn they will never consider such gifts again.
And these are pieces of land MP really wants too.
