‘I got blown up but I still stayed’ Mayfield’s Jack Thompson heads home on leave By HEATHER NELLIS For the Express

MAYFIELD — Mayfield native Jack Thompson, a first acting sergeant in the U.S. THOMPSON Army, will be coming home from Texas base Fort Hood today (Oct.1) for a one-month leave. “I haven’t been home in 16 or 17 months,” said Thompson, who has been active for 39 months, including two deployments to Iraq. “My contract was supposed to be up [this past] July, but [the Army]

has got me on stop-loss.” The stop-loss policy is an involuntary extension of a service member’s active duty service under the enlistment contract in order to retain them beyond their initial end of term of service date. “It doesn’t really bother me,” Thompson said in reference to the contract extension. “Of course I would love to go home, but I don’t mind being here. I’m used to it. The waiting and not knowing what’s going to happen is the worst part.” Thompson is hoping that he will be permanently released in about six to eight months, not only because his contract is up, but also because he has sustained several injuries during his time of service.

Suspect facing additional charges BROADALBIN — The man accused of robbing a Broadalbin bank earlier this month is now facing drug charges. Francis DiCarlo, III, of 30 N. Main St., was charged this week with a criminal possession of a controlled substance. He's already facing a first-degree robbery charge from the bank heist. DICARLO Karl Meybaum, a senior investigator for the New York State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation in Fonda, said the 24-year-old DiCarlo had "a small quantity of heroin and a hypodermic instrument" when he was arrested Sept. 12 in Amsterdam. DiCarlo had reportedly stolen about $1,700 from the Citizens Bank in Broadalbin, of which less than $20 was found, according to Meybaum. For the theft of money from the bank, DiCarlo could receive 5 to 25 years in prison, according to Fulton County District Attorney Louise Sira. Sira said prosecutors will present their case to a grand jury next month. She said DiCarlo will go on trial for the robbery and drug possession charges at the same time. — STEPHEN HEUSER J

Leonard L. and Suzanne (Glover) Crawford celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary with a big surprise party at Eagle Mills in Broadalbin, Aug. 30. The party was given by their five children: Leonard Crawford, Jr., Connie Erickson, Arienne Jones, Lisa Nelson and Sgt. Lindsey Crawford. Many classmates and friends (85) came from out of state from Florida, Tennessee and Massachusetts. Many more arrived from a dozen cities in New York. A large wedding cake and money tree were among their many gifts. The highlight of the party was the renewing of Leonard and Suzanne’s marriage vows with their nephew, Keith Bartholoma, officiating. All but one of the original wedding party was in attendance. A lovely scene of the waterwheel on the pond at Eagle Mills was in the background. Music was enjoyed throughout the day while the children amused themselves on the Eagle Mills’ play area which included an old wooden train to sin, go carts to ride and a bouncy bounce.

NORTHVILLE—Adirondack Architectural Heritage (AARCH) hosted a tour of Northville’s Downtown Saturday, Sept. 20. The tour began at 10 a.m. and ended around 3 p.m. Tour spokesperson Ellen Ryan, AARCH’s community outreach director, and Northville’s Town Historian Gail Cramer, guided the group of about 15 participants through the streets of Northville. Selected residents welcomed the heritage tour into their historic homes to see up close and personal the fine details and history. While Ellen Ryan educated the group on the various ar-

chitectural styles found in Northville, Town Historian Gail Cramer filled in the local history and stories behind the homes and their owners. According to Ryan, the architecture found and the years the homes came to be are important to history because they show migration patterns of people who traveled from various places, and where they settled down. The tour began just outside the Northville Northampton Museum after it’s dedication as a Town of Northampton Historical Landmark.

The group then walked to the site of the first home in the present day Village of Northville, built by Samuel Olmstead in 1788. From there tour observed the Van Arnam Family farm house an it’s simplified Greek revival architecture, which was more suited for a farm house. Other styles of architecture were pointed out on the walking tour, and the group was invited into four historic homes. The Conover House on First Street was built in 1910 is an example of a colonial revival. The homes original woodwork, lighting fixtures and antique decor were classic of their time. The next home tour was the George N. Brown House built in 1878. This home boasted of fine woodworking and intricate hardwood parquet floors. The Hubble chimney, a tall, stately monument of the once Hubble Glove Factory which burned in 1918, was visited and there was a discussion about the swifts that return every May 6 on original owner Ray Hubble’s birthday. The Hubble home was next on the tour. Ray Hubble’s home is currently owned by

Robert Whittaker and houses his appraisal business. Whittaker spoke to the group of the homes history standing by a fireplace with detailed tile work and carved wood craftsmanship. High ceilings with intricate detail were a characteristic of the home. The final stop on the tour brought the group to the Inn at the Bridge. Known historically as the Willard House, built in 1903, the home is an example of Queen Anne style architecture. The Inn at the Bridge is a current bed and breakfast with the amenities of the homes prominent past. Much of the village’s varied historic architecture remains and illustrates this community’s rich heritage. The Northville Historical Society meets on the first Wednesday of every month, where further information can be obtained. Adirondack Architectural Heritage (AARCH) is the private, non-profit, historic preservation organization for the Adirondack Park region. This tour was one of over 50 events in its annual series highlighting the region’s vast architectural legacy.

Northville village board OKs new curfew By HEATHER NELLIS For the Express

NORTHVILLE — During a meeting of the village board on Tuesday, Sept 16., officials unanimously voted “yes” to all issues moved, most notably to a proposed resolution approving an 11 p.m. curfew for minors and an opposition to map amendments requested by the Adirondack Park Agency. The curfew strictly prohibits any minor presence in all “public areas of the village of Northville at night to reduce juvenile crime and vandalism to protect the children and minors of the village,” according to newly added Chapter 80 of Local Law No. 1 of 2008. The lone cry of protest came from Northville local Terry Horner, the only resident to attend the meeting to express his concern with the curfew. “In the past 20 years, I have never had a bad experience with the youth here, even

during Halloween,” he commented. “I would hate to see another ‘big brother ’ law come down when we don’t really need it.” “We had a lot of problems last summer with vandalism and underage drinking,” said Mayor James Groff in response. “We’ve seen breakins at the Grand Union, the liquor store, and vandalism at the park. ... I don’t like being a surrogate parent. ... and it takes up a lot of our time.” Trustee Norman Richardson took note of the lack of opposition to the curfew, stating that officials “didn’t get any input from the neighbors, and if nobody says ‘no,’ then they are in favor.” “We do have a lot of good kids here, so I don’t see it affecting many of them,” said Trustee Jennifer ConklingDonovan. “It’s just to ensure that those few bad apples don’t do anything we could have prevented.” Another notable issue of the evening was a map amendment presented by the

APA that called to amend the Official Adirondack Park Land Use and Development Plan Map. According to a letter from Matthew S. Kendall, senior natural resource planner for the APA, certain “areas that are under the jurisdiction of the Hudson River-Black River Regulating District around Great Sacandaga Reservoir are owned by the State of New York but are incorrectly classified as private lands on the map.” Trustee William Gritsavage called to send a response “strongly opposing” to the “untimely letter” that was dated Aug. 27, and had requested preliminary comments by Sept. 10. Compliance with the APA’s amendments could mean that, “anyone could walk up on someone’s property and have a picnic without needing your permission or respecting your permit,” he said. Gritsavage’s motion was seconded and unanimously passed. According to the letter, the APA would expect approximately 3,259 acres of the Sacandaga Lake be handed over to the state.

Monday, Gary Mitchell, the director and choreographer, had called and requested that I be cast for the musical instead. It all worked out, which I am very grateful for.” Brown is currently performing in the show eight times a week. “We have Mondays and Tuesdays off, and we do two shows on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays,” said Brown. “I prepare myself for each show with some time at the gym and a skinny vanilla latte from Starbucks.” “Kyle has wanted to be on stage since he was a little boy,” said his mother Sheri Brown. “When he was 3 years old, he used to watch Peter Pan, and he knew every dance and every song by heart. He got his first real role when he was in fourth gradethe lead role in Pinocchio. He’s been doing this ever since.” By high school, Brown was so driven to be a performer that he applied and was accepted to performing arts high school Walnut Hill in Boston. “His time in Boston was instrumental to his acceptance to Cincinnati,” said Sheri. “We don’t have that kind of preparation around here. He’s

ments to Iraq, he has fallen off of a six-story building and been hit by a roadside bomb. The fall left him with a severely fractured tailbone that has led to chronic back pain, and the bomb caused him to lose some of his hearing. “I got blown up, but I still stayed,” Thompson said of his injuries. “I just have to grin and bear it. I have people who are depending on me, and my soldiers come first.” Aside from relaxing and spending time with his friends and family, including 11-year old daughter Sierra Ann, Thompson is looking forward to “squashing misconceptions about Iraq” when he comes home. “People always compile everything that happens in months over there into a week,” he said. “I want to change that.” J

worked very hard and done it all on his own.” Brown’s mom is “very proud” of her son, and has traveled often to see him perform. “I saw him in a lot of his Pittsburgh shows, and I went down to the city with my daughter and her husband to watch him in his first Broadway show. It was amazing. He’s really talented and I don’t just say that because he’s my son.” Sheri is currently organizing a bus trip to the Palace Theater for Oct. 12. The bus has room for 55 people, and she has already sold approximately 30 tickets. “We originally planned the trip for sometime in November, but there is a possibility that Kyle may get cast in a touring chorus line,” Sheri said. “It’s a lead role, and not that he doesn’t appreciate his role in ‘Legally Blonde,’ this one would be more active. We moved the bus trip so we were sure we could see him on Broadway.” No matter what role he is playing, Brown adds a personal touch to each character he portrays. “I feel like I bring something similar to every role — a piece of me.” J

tention on monitoring heavily traveled routes and intersections, increasing visibility of marked patrol units and enforcing highway safety laws. Lenahan said as a result of the funding awarded to the sheriff ’s department, there were 18 arrests and 145 uniform traffic tickets issued for the enforcement of 33 separate traffic safety laws during a total of 416 hours logged by deputies. The report indicated nine arrests for Operating with a Suspended Registration, six arrests for Operating with a Suspended Drivers License and three arrests for Driving While Intoxicated. Among the five most fre-

quent safety violations enforced by deputies included uninspected motor vehicle, operating while unlawfully using a cell phone, passing a red light, passing a stop sign, and traveling in excess of posted speed limits. From April 1, 2007 through September 15, 2007 the department investigated 30 motor vehicle accidents involving property damage, 21 involving personal injuries and one involving a fatality. During that time period for 2008, the department investigated 26 motor vehicle accidents involving property damage, nine involving personal injuries and no fatalities were recorded. J

on his casting. “My school also set me up really well [after graduation]. They set up a BROWN showcase for the graduates in New York City with a bunch of casting directors and agents.” It was here that Brown was signed on by the DGRW talent Agency in New York. After graduation, he performed in the Beverly, Mass. production “The Producers,” and then headed to Pittsburgh to perform in the city’s Civic Light Opera. “I enjoyed my time on those projects, but [Legally Blonde] is more exciting, because, come on, it’s Broadway!” said Brown. “But my role in ‘The Producers’ is similar to the role I’m playing now. They’re both pretty flamboyant and out there, so it was good practice.” “Legally Blonde: The Musical” was Brown’s first Broadway audition. “When I came back from Pittsburgh, it was a Friday, and my agent called and said I had an audition on Sunday for the Legally Blonde Tour,” said Brown. “By that

Halloween around the Great Sacandaga By L.L. DECKER For the Express

The October series, for the next five weeks, will feature folklore and historical stories from Mayfield, Northville, Broadalbin, Fish House, Conklinville, Jackson Summit, Edinburg, and Batchellerville. Starting the series with grave stones and symbolisms. Over the centuries, grave stones have been constructed from a variety of different materials. Wood, although abundant, didn’t weather well. Slate, used in the 1700’s, usually shows little or no weathering. Headstones from the 1800's that were made of sandstone are usually in very bad shape. Since around 1900 most headstones have been made from granite not easily eroded in time. Godfrey Shew was the first settler along the Sacandaga River at Fish House in 1771. The whereabouts of his remains are unknown. A story in references is found that he may have been scalped by Indians. The reference notes conflicting dates. Shew’s date of death was years after the fighting of the Revolutionary War ended so this could be doubtful. In the Northville South Main Street Cemetery is the grave of Samuel Olmstead, first settler in 1788. Olmsteads stone is the first stone on the left as you walk through iron gates. Next to him are also graves of his wife and children. Impressive monuments with symbolisms are found at this cemetery. Clarkville Cemetery in Edinburg is the final resting place of Samuel Downing one of the last Revolutionary War pensioners who died in 1867 at 105 years old. Downing was born in New Hampshire. At age sixteen Downing enlisted in the army and was sent with other enlisted to guard baggage wagons. He also participated in the campaign that resulted in the surrender of Burgoyne at the Battle of Saratoga. Downing took much interest the Civil War and frequently expressed a wish to have strength enough to assist the government. He would have been 99 years old then. Three of Downings grandsons served in the Union Army. The Clarkville Cemetery contains many grave stones with wonderful symbolisms.

When land was cleared and leveled for Northville’s Prospect Hill cemetery, Stephen Acker was hired for the job. A notable builder and who lived in Northville, Acker built the stone abutments under the first steel Northville bridge in 1882, painted the 80 foot Presbyterian church spire (which was removed in later years), and erected Hubbell’s chimney. In references it is written that after Acker had finished clearing and leveling the land he had made a joke of someone probably getting killed trying to be the first one “in” the newly made resting place. Shortly thereafter Acker was killed in a freak accident involving a pipe wrench which fell on his head and was the first to be interred at Prospect Hill Cemetery in 1883. Also in Northville in 1905 there was a granite works company operated by James A. Cole. Horse-drawn wagons transported granite from a quarry in Hope to Northville by to make grave stones. In Mayfield in the Riceville cemetery are the

grave stones of Oliver Rice who built the first and only clothiers mill in the area. A memorial stone was set at the roadsides edge of the cemetery for Revolutionary War Captain Solomon Woodworth and Sergeant John Dunham. Other members of the Woodworth family are buried there. Symbolism on gravestones convey messages when words might not be adequate. Here are a few of the more common symbols and their generally accepted meanings: anchor—hope (“Hope is the anchor of the soul ”), arrows or darts—mortality, birds— the soul, handshake-farewell to earthly existence, ivy— memory and fidelity, lamp— truth; knowledge, picks and shovels—mortality, skeletons—mortality, skull

(winged)—the flight of the soul from the mortal body, sun rising—renewed life, sun setting—eternal death, sword—martyrdom; courage, wheat—time; the divine harvest (often used to denote old age), willow—grief Grave stone art can be preserved by a process known as rubbing. Pellon fabric is wrapped around the stone and fasted with masking tape. Then rubbing wax is applied in an even pressure rubbing in

one direction until the area is covered. Then the fabric is removed and cut to size. One of the greatest advantages of a headstone rubbing is that it can reveal intricate details on a headstone that are nearly invisible to the naked eye. Various rubbings have revealed ornamental patterns, dates and lettering after the process is completed. Previous history at J

Brandon Bush hitting his stride for B-PCS By PAUL ANTONELLI For the Express

BROADALBIN — It took a while for Brandon Bush to learn how to use his new Taylor Made RAC TD steel shaft irons, but once the BroadalbinPerth senior worked out some of the difficulties of hitting with forged irons, his golf game soared to new heights. He began to hit draws, fades and can now hit an approach shot into the green with controlling spin. Of course, his scores have plummeted as well. Bush fired two rounds of even-par 32 recently at Holland Meadows putting the 5-foot-11 ballstriker in solid contention to make a run at a sectional title. Johnstown’s Andy Rathbun is the only golfer to ever break par at the course. “The greens there are really small so you have to play British Open-like golf,” Bush said. “You bump everything and let it roll to the green.” Bush has been a varsity golfer since the eighth grade and has been the team’s No. 1 player for the past three seasons. He upgraded his game

B-PCS senior Brandon Bush will play in the Section II Class B tournament Thursday.

over the summer, playing at famed TBC Sawgrass — site of the Players Championship. He played from the back tees and at 7,405 yards and found the course to be a monumental test. Yet he was able to par the 424yard Par 4 10th hole and the difficult 462-yard, Par 4, 18th hole. He finished the round with an 85. “Playing that course made me a better golfer,” said Bush, who can drive a golf ball close to 300 yards.

“You play that course and you can’t help but think of all the greats who have played there.” Bush, a two-time Foothills Council All-Star, is gearing up for the Section II Class B Tournament, Oct. 2 at Saratoga State Spa Park. The top 14 advance to the Section II Tournament slated to take place a week later at Orchard Creek in Altamont. The top eight there will advance to the state championship to be held next spring.

B-P golf coach Eric Sengenberger has been with Bush every step of the way. “Brandon has steadily improved in his 5 years on the varsity,” Sengenberger said. “He can play a wide variety of shots, and has good touch around the greens. Over the past year, he has practiced and played with greater focus and purpose — he’d like to play in college and pursue a career in the golf business — and he’s taken a leadership role on a very young team.” Bush is also a member of the B-P basketball team and may shift to point guard following the graduation of leading scorer Dan Schulz. But Sengenberger feels Bush has a bright future on the links. Bush currently holds a 37.8 stroke average this fall. “I think the real key to his play this year is that his genuine confidence has caught up to his physical talent,” Sengenberger said “There’s a big difference between thinking you can play well under pressure, and knowing you can. Once you know you can, you develop a calmness that makes it even easier — that’s where Brandon is heading now.” J

This time of year offers great fishing Some of you are still heavily into the fishing scene and that’s understandable since this time of year offers some of the very best fishing potential we’ve seen since last May. The statewide bass season closes on November 30 but just about everything else you might want to fish for in Great Sacandaga Lake remains open throughout the ice fishing season. The walleye and northern pike seasons don’t close until March 15 and even trout may be taken year-round in the lake, though there are some restrictions on where you can fish for trout between March 16 and the opening of the walleye season on the first Saturday in May, but those restrictions apply to streams entering the lake, not the lake itself. These restrictions are in place to provide a measure of protection for walleyes which may enter these streams to spawn in March and April. You can get details on those restrictions on page 57 in the 2006-2008 Freshwater Fishing Regulations booklet you received when you bought your new licenses. The hunting seasons have also arrived and there are already loads of opportunities to spend some quality time afield. For example, the statewide squirrel, crow and early goose seasons opened on September 1. The early goose season has since closed, on September 25 to be exact, but the other seasons remain. Also, the ruffed grouse season in the northern zone opened on September 20. For big game hunters, the Early Bear season opened in the northern zone on September 13 and the northern zone big game bowhunting season opened on


Great Sacandaga Lake

September 27. There are a number of season openings today, including: fall turkeys in the northern and southern zones; varying hare (snowshoe rabbit) in the northern zone; cottontail rabbit in the northern, southern and western zones; ruffed grouse (partridge) in the southern & western zones; pheasant in the eastern half of New York State; and the statewide coyote hunting season also opened today. Today your new 2008-2009 hunting, fishing and Trapping licenses also went into effect. Opening later this month are the statewide woodcock season on October 6; the northern zone muzzleloader big game season on October 11; the northern zone regular big game season on October 18; and the southern zone bowhunting season, also on October 18. Back on the subject of woodcock, they are considered migratory but you don’t need a federal migratory bird stamp to hunt them. However, you do need a Harvest Information Program (HIP) number before going out after ‘timberdoodles.’ You can get a number very easily and quickly by going to DEC’s website at: or by calling 1-888-4275447, toll-free. The entire process takes about five minutes and that number will be good for a year. Just remember to record that HIP number on your license. Hunting migratory birds without that required HIP number is tantamount to hunting without a license. Next, don’t forget that the

annual fund raising dinner of the Foothills Friends of the NRA takes place this evening, beginning at 6 pm, at the Johnstown Holiday Inn on Route 30A. PHEASANT STOCKING With the pheasant season opening today, here’s where you’ll need to go to find the birds released recently by the Department of Environmental Conservation. In Fulton County birds

were released in the Ephratah area on Route 140 west of the village of Ephratah; and on Route 67 near the Ephratah Rod & Gun Club. In Saratoga County, State birds were released in Greenfield in the Daketown State Forest; and in Montgomery County they were released at several locations including Canajoharie on Seeber’s Lane; Clinton Road north and east of Nestle Road intersection; Old Sharon Road between Mapletown and Tubbs Road; north of Clinton Road and east of Route 163; and Maring Road near Route 89. In the Canajoharie/Minden area they were released on Nestle Road and in Palatine they were re-

leased on McKinley Road near Oswegatchie. Remember that some of these birds were released on private land that’s open to hunting but with the permission of the landowner. When in doubt, ask for permission first. THE DUES ARE DUE Here’s a reminder that annual dues for 2009 for the Fish House Fish & Game Club must be paid by the end of October. The club meets the first Tuesday of every month and current and prospective members are encourages to attend the next regular monthly meeting which will be held on Tuesday, October 7. J
