Page 3 Page 2 Page 6 APA allows extra public hearing By Jon Alexander RAY BROOK — Adirondack Park Agency officials have agreed to grant one final public hearing concerning the reclassification of 12,500 acres of recently acquired land surrounding Lows Lake – including the lakebed itself. Early this week, Harrietstown officials requested the ad- ditional hearing. Harrietstown Supervisor Larry Miller told WNBZ that local sportsman and outdoors clubs had contacted him, stating the three previous public hearings were either too far from the local area or held at a time when many couldn’t attend. “They felt it was too far for individuals in the Tri-Lakes area to go to and they felt there would be the possibility of a great number of individuals who would want to partici- pate,” he said. The previous public hearings were held earlier this month in Long Lake, Wanakena and Albany. Miller offered the Harrietstown Hall as a potential site for the additional hearing, but APA legal counsel John Banta said it will instead be held at the agency headquarters in Ray Brook. The hearing is scheduled for Monday, Aug. 10 at 6:30 See APA, page 5 New Memory Garden Brightens the Adirondack Tri-County Nursing Home By Laura Cormack Lindsay Yandon New editor hired to lead News Enterprise By Thom Randall NORTH CREEK — This coming week, there will be a new face at the North Creek News-Enterprise. Lindsay M. Yandon, 22, has been hired as the editor for the News Enterprise, a Denton Publications weekly that is the leading source of news for its circulation area. Denton Publications’ Managing Editor John Gereau said Yandon was chosen from a pool of talented candidates, and said she will undoubtedly steer vital community news into the pages of the News Enterprise. “Lindsay is a native of our region with a unique insight into the people and communities here and a talented young journalist,” Gereau said. “We are lucky to have her as the new editor of the News Enterprise." Yandon replaces Jonathan Alexander, who moved on several weeks ago to become assistant news director of WNBZ radio and Mountain Communications in Saranac Lake. A native of Newcomb, Yandon graduated valedictorian of her class at Newcomb Central. Yandon continued her studies at Houghton College, where she served as Editor-In-Chief of the college newspaper after serving as a reporter and editorial assistant for two years. She graduated with honors in 2008 with a degree in journalism, and then interned at the Hollywood Reporter film magazine’s New York City bureau. Also, she held a parttime job at the Carol Mann Agency, a boutique publishing enterprise in Manhattan. Additionally, she wrote several community news articles last summer for the North Creek News Enterprise. Late last year, Yandon joined the media relations staff of Houghton’s administration, where she worked for about nine months, writing news releases, helping develop marketing campaigns, and editing the school’s alumni magazine. Several months ago, she took a position at the Shoreline Restaurant in Lake George while seeking employment in journalism. See LINDSAY, page 3 NORTH CREEK — The Adirondack Tri-County Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in North Creek has become a bit more colorful lately, thanks to the recent addition of a memory garden. Memory gardens, gardens designed to memorialize residents of assisted living facilities, are popular in such facilities around the country, and the TriCounty nursing home put its resources together and reached out to the community so it too could enjoy the numerous benefits of these beautiful and functional gardens. According to David Lovelace, administrator of Tri-County, the nursing home has been looking for creative new ways to expand and continue to foster success as an assisted living facility in the Adirondack area. “Facilities of this kind offer similar care, so what is our differentiating factor?” Lovelace posed. “Why not create a space that lets people experience the tranquility that a garden can offer? Having a memory garden gives us a competitive advantage.” The garden currently includes a See GARDEN, page 7 Pictured above:: A memory garden has been installed at The Adirondack Tri-County Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in North Creek, both as a place of respite for residents and a location for therapy.
