Still standing in the rain

Members of “Concerned Citizens of Orleans County,” including Adolf Genter of Albion, again picketed along Main Street on Wednesday during the Orleans County Legislature meeting. About 20-25 people stood in support of keeping The Villages of Orleans as a county-owned nursing home. The Legislature in February voted to transfer ownership of the facility to a local development corporation, which is working to find a buyer for the 120-bed facility on Route 31 in Albion. Concerned Citizens have since picketed outside the Legislature meetings the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month, and each meeting time has featured nasty weather, either freezing cold or a downpour.
