The National Weather Service in Albany has issued a

* Urban and Small Stream Flood Advisory for Poor Drainage Areas for... Northeastern Saratoga County in east central New York... Eastern Warren County in east central New York... Washington County in east central New York...

* Until 315 AM EDT.

* At 123 AM EDT, Doppler radar and automated rain gauges indicated heavy rain. This will cause urban and small stream flooding. Overflowing poor drainage areas will cause minor flooding in the advisory area. Up to 1 inch of rain has fallen. Some locations that will experience flooding include... Saratoga Springs, Glens Falls, Hudson Falls, Warrensburg, Whitehall, Salem, Lake George Village, Fort Edward, Corinth, Granville, Hartford, Hague, Comstock, Bolton Landing, Glens Falls North, West Glens Falls, Huletts Landing, Lake Luzerne Campground, Lake Luzerne-Hadley and Chestertown. Additional rainfall of 1 inch is expected over the area. This additional rain will result in ponding of water on roadways and poor drainage flooding of low lying areas. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS... A Flood Advisory means river or stream flows are elevated, or ponding of water in urban or other areas is occurring or is imminent. Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the dangers of flooding. In hilly terrain there are hundreds of low water crossings which are potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do not attempt to cross flooded roads. Find an alternate route. &&

The Vermont Press Association has issued a news release condemning protesters collecting copies of Seven Days and torching them during a march on the Church Street Marketplace in Burlington, Vermont, last Thursday night. We have reprinted it on our website.

"The VPA noted there is a certain irony that the protesters are using the last two freedoms under the five freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment – the right to assemble and the right to petition government for grievances.

"'Yet at the same time they failed to acknowledge two freedoms ahead of those in the First Amendment – the right to a free press and free speech,' VPA president Lisa Loomis said.

“'We are encouraging the protesters to become involved in civic engagement – yes, civic engagement – and that requires communication.'”
