Town Fumes Over Smoky Situation By John Howard


handful of brush removal fires on N.Y. Route 233 cast a blanket of thick, gray smoke over the Village and onto neighboring properties. Residents voiced their frustrations to local authorities to no avail, thanks to an exemption in the State’s open burning laws. Burning began on Wednesday, April 9, on a plot of land on the east side of Route 233, approximately 1/2 miles from the College St. intersection. Brush was gathered into large piles and ignited in an effort to clear the field. Moisture from rain and the winter months slowed down the process, giving off heavy smoke that remained through the end of the day Thursday. Environmental Conservation Officer Ricardo Grisolini, Clinton Fire Department Chief Bill Huther, Town Supervisor Bob Meelan and Kirkland Police Chief Dan English all confirmed that they received several calls regarding the flames. Police responded to the scene, but found no violation. “We’re deferring to the DEC,” said English, who, as of midday Wednesday, noted that their station had already received a dozen calls about the fires. “Everybody that called, we advised them that the farmer was burning and that was the extent of our involvement.” While it is illegal for most residents to burn any materials from March 16 through May 14, due to an increased risk of wildfires, an exemption in the

open burning laws allows farmers to burn what is classified as organic “agricultural waste.” DEC representative Stephen Litwhiler confirmed that the property, owned by Edward Gallagher of Deansboro, was protected.

“We did investigate and told him [Gallagher] that he can’t leave the fire unattended,” said Litwhiler, “and it has to be out within 24 hours.” By Friday, the effects of the

Clinton Cuts JV and Varsity Softball Programs

Player waits for her turn at batting practice during modified softball practice. By John Howard


wo weeks into the season, the Clinton School District has cut JV and varsity softball programs, blaming low turnout for the decision. Superintendent of Schools Matthew Reilly spoke briefly about the topic during last week’s Board of Education

meeting. “It seems that they [the girls] were more drawn to some of the other sports offerings,” he said. “We didn’t have the numbers.” According to CCS Athletic Director Doug Fiore, the School waited until the last possible minute to make the call and made every possible effort to keep both teams alive. “It’s not one answer,” said Fiore, who has been with the School since 2007. “Lacrosse and track numbers

are good, so that did affect softball. A lot of the kids who played [previously] decided not to come back out this year.” Fiore also attributed the low numbers to declining enrollment, preoccupation with college preparation and the season’s competing sports in other leagues, like AAU basketball. When practices started, there were as many as 11 players on the field. That number soon dwindled to five. With a bare minimum of fielders for a team at nine, and preferably at least a dozen, administrators had no choice but to cut both programs. The decision comes as a shock to an organization that is known for its consistency and competitiveness. Clinton varsity softball made it to Sectionals the past two seasons. The School’s other sports offerings for girls in the spring are limited to lacrosse and track and field. None of the girls who originally signed up for softball moved over to the varsity lacrosse team. It’s unclear if any joined the track program. Robin Penoyer was originally slated to coach the girls varsity team. She has since been moved down to modified. The absence of a youth softball program, Penoyer said, has a lot to do with the weak turnout for the higher level teams. “Kids want to play softball,” said Penoyer, who once played at the Division I level in the sport at the University of Minnesota, “they just need a place to play.” With girls getting their start primarily in youth baseball programs

Jeter Coming to Clinton By Staff


ews spread like wildfire following an announcement last week that baseball mogul Derek Jeter would be coming to Hamilton College. The Yankees star will journey to Clinton this December to serve as a guest in the College’s Great Names Series. Jeter, who is proceeded in the series by Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, announced earlier this year that he would retire after 20 years with the New York team. Prior to his lengthy stretch as a star shortstop with the Yankees, with whom he currently captains, Jeter never played for another major league club. His career as been dotted with sponsorships, World Series championships, constant media attention, as well as an abundance of awards, including five Gold Glove Awards, five Silver Slugger Awards and 2009’s Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year. There is a selflessness about Jeter. Underneath his towering public persona, the major leaguer makes a point to use his celebrity and athletic prowess for the betterment of the community. His Turn 2 Foundation has awarded more than $19 million to youth programs. Launched in 1996, the The Great Names Series aims to connect Hamilton students, professors, staff and the community with renowned individuals. The event is free and open to the public. In addition to Clinton and Jeter, the series has seen a number of highly recognizable names, including Condoleezza Rice, Jon Stewart, B.B. King and Rudy Giuliani. Jeter’s appearance will consist of a moderated question-and-answer discussion. The event will begin Wednesday, Dec. 10, at 7:30 p.m. in the Margaret Bundy Scott Field House. For editorial, see “In Defense of Jeter” on page 3.

Publisher’s Note Spring is in the Air While out around the Village, we’ve heard many times over that it’s been “the longest” winter in recent memory. We arrived here in late December and can certainly attest that it’s been the longest one we’ve had in a while. Though we previously spent nearly five years in Rochester, upon arriving back from Los Angeles, I struggled a lot with the cold, the short daylight hours and the inability to easily, and comfortably, take a walk to wherever I needed, or wanted to go. After living for so long in a place that was perpetually summer, I anticipated it to be refreshing to be somewhere with real seasons—leaves changing, snow falling, it all sounds better when you don’t have it. But if we’re being honest, I am especially joyous that the area is finally thawing out. As I was reminded this weekend, I can walk to the Green or other places, too, I just have to wait for spring to show its face. Though as I write this there’s a raging wind and rain storm happening, I’ll be the first to admit I took a break or two (or three) from working this weekend to just stand in our driveway and marvel that I didn’t need three layers to be there. And I know I wasn’t alone in doing so. Aside from our cats, who were often caught lying in sun patches filtering in through the windows, this past weekend it appeared as though everyone in the Village was out stretching their legs. On College Street you were bound to see a lot of walkers, joggers and bike riders enjoying the sunshine. Long lines formed at local, outdoor establishments such as Bonomo’s (see page 4), as the community sought out cool tasty

treats at the first hint of warm weather. The shops, such as Krizia Martin (see page 8), are displaying their spring and summer merchandise and area churches are prepping for upcoming Easter events (see page 4). Each season marks a number of changes, and for me, in Los Angeles, some of those changes were easy to miss (it can simply never feel like Christmas there for an east coast gal). The spring marks a change in not only the weather and shrubbery (see garden tips on page 3), but also signals the change of what sports are happening at the school— the varsity baseball team is spending spring break training and playing games in Florida (see Sports, page 16)—and what classes the KAC is holding (see The Calendar, page 4). Flowers are starting to poke through the top layer of soil, yellow lawns are turning green. There’s people out and about. If you see us, please say hello! We’d love to hear what you’re up to. To boil it down, all I’m really asking is, next time you’re out, take a look at how the whole Village is transforming this spring. Because you know what? It is refreshing.

Village Hack: One Hour of Bicks Have a thought? Share it on our

TIP LINE Leave The Clinton Courier a message at: 760-4856

Whenever I can, I try to tune in to WHCL, Hamilton College’s radio station. It reminds me of my days on WITR, at RIT. Late one night, I happened upon a hiphop show. I later learned its called “One Hour of Bicks.” DJ Alex Bicks takes listeners on a ride, carefully crafting an hour programming through line by connecting themes and backstories in very

serious, but brief mic breaks. The music is what you might expect a spring breaker or Urban Outfitter shopper to listen to, but this is no Top 40s radio. There’s something very captivating about how Bicks works to connect with the rap artists, whom I’m only assuming after a brief Facebook search have had vastly different upbringings than his own. His thoughtfulness comes through modestly, yet triumphantly. There’s a lot of heart here. -John Howard, Executive Editor

The Clinton Scene Plank Roads Conclusions

gravel, stone, and cinders, in addition to planks. On December 1, 1877, the Utica and Waterville Plank Road dissolved, although one source cited it as 1856. The toll gates were thrown open for good. Again the roads became horrible for freight and coaches as the mud and muck replaced the former smoother planks, now unmaintained. The Seneca Plank Road lasted from 1849 to 1852, and the Utica and Waterville Central Plank Road operated 1847 to 1876, ending plank roads in the town of Kirkland. This continued until the “good roads movement” of the early 1900s. Macadam and concrete roads around here began in the early 20th century. One of the first concrete roads was Route 26 between Oriskany Falls and Rome built during the World War I era. It took a long time to improve permanently on the terrible road conditions with which travelers had to cope. As a result, new technologies allowed new ways to travel such as the street trolley which will be in the next installment on transportation.

In Defense of Jeter By Kaitlin McCabe, Editor-in-Chief of The Spectator

The above photo is from the February 2000 Clinton Historical Society Newsletter prepared by Phil Munson. Note the dotted line which is the plank road and the four toll houses. By Richard L. Williams, Town and Village Historian


he last three installments have gone over early paths, turnpikes, canals and plank roads in regards to the general framework of how settlers got around for commerce and pleasure. This final installment covers the accounts of plank roads which went through Clinton and Kirkland between 1848 and 1877. Remember, the Town of Kirkland was formed in April 1827 and with that came the positions of commissioners of roads and pathmasters, which were official town jobs. In the first minutes of the new Town Board meeting in May 1827, three men were appointed road commissioners, and 51 were appointed as pathmasters. It could be assumed that the pathmasters each were responsible for a part of a road probably near their homes, although the exact job description is missing. Likewise, it is probable that these pathmasters recruited neighbors to work on the roads and it is possible the town provided some money for materials. In the first Kirkland budget created in 1827, $30.00 was used to support roads and bridges and was to be raised by a tax. Plank roads gave locals a brief spell with a smoother surface as compared to the former dirt and gravel roads. The Utica Morning Herald reported in October 1848 that rainy weather had caused ordinary roads to be obstructed by the mud, but on the plank roads the passage is as smooth and rapid as in midsummer. The Utica and Waterville Plank Road did pay a 9 percent dividend in 1851, but repairs were a constant drain on the income. Three, and later four, toll keepers were paid $125.00 per year to collect the fees. Many folks evaded the toll booths by driving around them or using alternate routes. Plank roads advocates stressed how farmers could take their produce to

cities year round in all weather. Also property values were said to increase in the Utica area by 15 percent and the population by 25 percent. In 1848 the Madison Observer remarked that all plank roads in operation in this State are doing a prosperous and profitable business. This was a short-lived prosperity. Between 1855 and 1875, the plank roads were declining across the state due to canal competition and high maintenance costs as the wood wore out or rotted. Further contributing to the problems plank roads faced, was the beginning of the local railroad era. While Utica had railroads in the late 1830s, it was not until 1866 when the iron rails reached Clinton from New Hartford on the Utica, Clinton, and Binghamton Railroad. Beginning in 1866 passenger trains took Clinton folks to Utica or New York City, and farmers could receive freight and ship produce. A major item shipped was Pennsylvania coal, which now could come by rail replacing the seasonal Chenango canal. The Utica and Waterville Plank Road officially opened in November 1848 after construction began in the spring of 1848. The firm had four toll houses and gates, and in 1851 collected $18,000. However, by 1854 many planks were broken into pieces, some planks were loose, and sections were out of repair. Horses took a beating, too. In 1853 The Clinton Courier reported a whiffletree broke loose and fell on the horse’s heels which frightened him and dumped the passenger into a ditch. While existing records are sparse after 1855, the plank road through here stayed in business despite many problems. In 1861 the company paid a 2 percent dividend, but the end was in sight as railroads boomed. After the 1860 period the firm repaired the plank road by using


ince its establishment in 1996, the Sacerdote Great Names Series has brought national and international leaders in government, business, science and the arts to the Hamilton College campus. Its underlying mission aims to provide members of both the Hamilton and local community with unique opportunities to interact with some of the world’s most renowned individuals through lectures and ad hoc question-and-answer periods in addition to, in many cases, intimate classroom discussions. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton graced the Hill, speaking of policy and personal interests, in the series’ latest installment in 2013. Her visit inevitably set a high precedent for future speakers. Last week, the long-anticipated name of the 2014 Great Names speaker was officially released to the public: Derek Jeter, the renowned captain and shortstop of the New York Yankees. Jeter, who will retire after the current season, will speak on the Hill on Wednesday, Dec. 10. Though there is no doubt that the announcement generated excitement on campus for all its members, whether they are diehard Yanks fans or not, the selection of Jeter for Great Names has left many questioning what the athlete could speak of other than baseball. While the community clearly recognizes the household name for his strong reputation as an unmatched leader on and off the ball field, while gaining the respect of teammates and opponents alike, it neglects his commitment to inspiring the nation’s youth to make positive life choices. Derek Jeter may in essence be the face of baseball, but his greatness extends beyond the limits of the game. No doubt, the acclaimed athlete will motivate attendees with his lessons about leading a team and working towards fulfilling personal goals. Yet, the most important lesson that one of the most heavily marketed athletes and youth advocates of this generation can teach the Hamilton community is that the pride one gains from giving back to the community is just as powerful as that cultivated by

personal achievement. Take Jeter’s Turn 2 Foundation. Since 1996, the community service organization has awarded more than $19 million in grants to create and support programs that promote healthy lifestyles for adolescents. By fostering academic excellence, leadership development and positive behaviors, Turn 2 encourages young adults to fight peer pressure to make reckless decisions, such as drinking and taking drugs. Or, consider Jeter’s inspiring book, “The Life You Imagine,” which combines his personal experiences to provide readers with the ten lessons that have guided him throughout his life on and off the field. These efforts are neither self-promoting ventures to boost appeal and increase his salary nor insincere acts of charity to gain national recognition and accolades. They are compassionate, unpretentious ways through which the professional athlete ensures that younger generations have the same or better chance to fulfill their goals as he did. So, to perplexed members of the community unable to dissociate Jeter from baseball, the icon is a unique selection for Great Name but not an insubstantial one. His experiences fulfilling his dream of being a skillful, determined athlete to reaching his ultimate goal of becoming an active leader in the greater national community will surely enlighten and entertain all of the Hamilton community, not just fan’s of America’s pastime. There is much to learn from Jeter beyond the realm of achieving athletic excellence and fame, and I can say for myself as well as my peers on the Hill that his visit is eagerly awaited.

Gardening Tips for the Thaw By Ruth Meier, member of the Clinton Gardening Club and Master Gardener


pring is here…at least that’s what the calendar says. Apparently, Mother Nature does not agree this year. Many people claim spring as their favorite season, with flowers starting to bloom and colors returning to our gardens after winter’s absence. But hold on. Winter has not given up yet. So please, have patience and go slow until the last frost and the warming of the soil. I have tried to start my own garden cleanup and find the soil is still wet, full of debris from all our storms and bad weather. I also found what I thought was a big rock in the garden (which my granddaughter and I were planning on using for a garden edge) but it turned out to be a huge, solid piece of ICE. So patience is the first rule for this April. But you can continue to test your soil, clean and oil garden tools, start seeds indoors, visit garden centers and shows, order summer bulbs and keep garden records. Don’t pull off winter mulch until the warm weather arrives. Prune trees and shrubs and clean debris. Good luck, enjoy spring and happy gardening.

SOFTBALL (Continued from page 1) like Little League, Penoyer said she is stuck teaching players basic softball skills at higher levels. “Both [baseball and softball] are great games, but they’re different,” said Penoyer. This is the first time that the High School has not hosted a varsity team in the sport since 2007. A lack of upper class athletes that year caused the administration to rethink their strategy and instead compete a JV team. Generally, a varsity and modified team are all the School can accomodate. Penoyer hopes a focus on fundamentals with younger players will help bolster the program. In addition to working with a large group of enthusiastic modified players, she is considering starting her own Amateur Softball Association league in the community. “The group I’m working with now, it’s refreshing,” she said. “Getting them to think like a softball player is one thing, and the other is just giving them the skills and inspiring them to continue to play.”

Clinton Pool to Screen Outdoor Movies This Summer By Staff


he Jack Boynton Community Pool will host movie screenings this summer as part of its effort to transform the Village landmark into a summer recreation destination. Films, which are scheduled to begin in August, will be projected onto a screen on the fence around the Pool’s perimeter. Moviegoers will sit on the lawn outside of the fenced-in area on Norton Avenue. The Pool is working with the Kirkland Town Library to bring the community this and other special events. During the screenings, the Pool’s concession stand will remain open for business. “We’re going to try and offer an activity every day,” said Laura Stoll, the Pool Board’s secretary. The idea is to make the Pool “a place where kids and parents can go in the summer and have something to do.” Activities slated to fill the schedule

are organized games, crafts, story time and yoga. Food trucks will flock to the scene on a weekly basis. Mouthwatering aromas will fill the air every Friday thanks to Gypsy Girl Pizza, The Grapevine and Fiesta MexiCali. Visitors will be welcome to take their meals to go or bring them poolside to dine on the picnic tables there. Regular swimming lessons and water aerobics will also continue to be offered. With the Pool nearing its 60th anniversary, the Board has big hopes to make this season a turning point in the community facility’s legacy. “Every year it’s a question of if the Pool is going to open,” said Stoll, “and that’s not at all a question this year. We’re open, we’re ready to go, we’re really excited to make this the best year ever.” The Pool is scheduled to open June

ost people have heard the “six degrees of separation” theory. As defined on the website, http://, “six degrees of separation is the theory that anyone on the planet can be connected to any other person on the planet through a chain of acquaintances that has no more than five intermediaries. The theory was first proposed in 1929 by the Hungarian writer Frigyes Karinthy in a short story called ‘Chains.’” “Six Degrees of Separation” is also the title for a 1993 American film adaptation of the Pulitzer Prizenominated play by John Guare. The game “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon,” which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, is played by linking other actors to Bacon in six steps or fewer via the movies they have in common. You can actually do a Google search for an actor’s “Bacon number.” You can use books to prove this theory. Browsing our new non-fiction titles, you can link a coal town with a paperclip in six steps: 1) “The Little Bookstore of Big Stone Gap: A Memoir of Friendship, Community, and the Uncommon Pleasure of a Good Book” by Wendy Welch relates the story of how she and her husband left their “highoctane jobs for a simpler life in an Appalachian coal town.” They pursue their dream of owning a bookstore, but they have no experience, the economy is declining, the town has no industry and the ebook arrives. As the book jacket reads, “they succeeded in establishing more than a thriving business—they built a community.” 2) Our first link is through the word “little”: “little bookstore” is connected to “The Little Paris Kitchen: 120 Simple but Classic French Recipes” by Rachel Khoo. Khoo gives readers a modern approach to Cordon Bleu cookery. Cooks of all levels will be inspired to try their hand at French cuisine. She “demystifies French cooking with 120 enticing recipes for simple, classic, and fresh French dishes, from gouter (snacks) to elegant desserts. More than 100 breathtaking photos from celebrated photographer David Loftus shine a spotlight on the

delicious food and the City of Light.” (book summary) 3) The next link is Paris. “Paris in Love” is described by Elizabeth Gilbert, the author of “Eat, Pray, Love” as “a beautiful and delightful tasting menu of a book: the kids, the plump little dog, the Italian husband. Reading this memoir was like wandering through a Parisian patisserie in a dream.” Eloisa James (a.k.a. Mary Bly), a Shakespeare professor at Fordham University and the author of “Paris in Love,” chronicles her sabbatical year spent with her family in Paris. 4) “Love” is the next link. Howard Zehr is the author and photographer of “Pickups: A Love Story. Pickup Trucks, Their Owners, Their Stories.” The summary on the book jacket begins, “this book takes you straight inside that mystical bond between a man and his truck, a woman and her truck. Zehr has captured these passionate connections in striking images and stories, told in the voices of the trucks’ owners.” You can enjoy reading the stories pickup owners share about their relationships with their trucks, or you can just browse the photos of pickup trucks—vintage, junkers, hot rods, work trucks or show trucks. 5) The next link is Owners. “Your Dog: The Owner’s Manual. Hundreds of Secrets, Surprises, and Solutions for Raising a Happy Healthy Dog.” Dr. Marty Becker, veterinary contributor for “Good Morning America” and “The Dr. Oz Show” covers everything canine in this book, which is divided into four parts: Fresh Starts and New Beginnings; Home Care to Keep Pets Healthy and Safe; The Social Animal: Teaching Good Behavior; and In Sickness and in Health. There are chapters on finding a good veterinarian and special care for aging dogs. 6) The final link is— “Secret.” Annie Jacobsen, author of the bestseller “Area 51,” gives readers a look at “one of America’s most strategic, and disturbing, government programs” in “Operation Paperclip: The Secret Intelligence Program that Brought Nazi Scientists to America.” These scientists, many of whom were accused of war crimes and stood trial at Nuremberg, also were directly responsible for major advances in rocketry, medical treatments, and the U.S. Space program. Jacobsen poses the question, “Was Operation Paperclip a moral outrage, or did it help America win the Cold War?” Come browse the shelves at the library and see what “six degree” connections you can make.

Benchmark Brand Returns to Krizia Martin Windows

Racks of Lilly Pulitzer clothing fill Krizia Martin. The brand is back in the store for the first time in seven years. By John Howard


new shipment of Lilly Pulitzer summer merchandise is on display at Krizia Martin. It’s the first time the brand has appeared on the Village shop’s shelves since its creator brought it to the store seven years ago. “Chrissy loved the brand,” said Corrine Gates, who co-owns and operates the store with Gail Welch in honor of their late sister, Christin Martin. “The biggest satisfaction is seeing how happy customers are.” Certain fashion brands like Lilly Pulitzer, which is known for its bright, floral patterns and resort appeal, come with strict guidelines for the stores that carry them. At a time when Christin was dealing with a leukemia diagnosis, Lilly Pulitzer’s procedural demand yielded no other choice but to drop the line.

Since then, some changes have happened, including looser brand regulations and a broadening approach to reach the college crowd. Gates credits her two part time Hamilton College employees as some of her “best advertising.” “They really liked the idea that we were in a college town,” said Gates. “They’re very selective. There’s no question about it.” Christin, a board-certified hydrogeologist by trade, had always dreamed of owning a boutique-style store with a Nantucket feel. When she finally got her store on West Park Row, she wanted to provide brands that “you can’t find in the malls.” And she had some regulations of her own. “Everything that leaves here is wrapped in tissue paper with a

Above: Corrine Gates adjusts a dress on display in Krizia Martin’s window. Krizia Martin sticker on it,” said Gates. “We try to carry on all those traditions like that.” Customer service remains at the forefront of the Krizia Matin mission today. For some of their loyal shoppers, the staff will even let them take items home for trial runs. If they don’t like it, they can take it back—another nod to Christin’s efforts. “She knew her customers,” said Gates. “She knew how she wanted to be treated.” Gates and Welch, who currently lives on the West Coast and works with vendors there, purchased the business from Christin’s husband, Kevin, following her death in December of 2008. They were determined to keep the store going and eventually pass it on to Christin’s daughters, Zoe, 16, and Caroline, 13. Maintaining the legacy has been hard work. The store has six parttime employees, and on top of running her video production company, Video Vision, Gates is there seven days a week. Her husband, Tom Neuman, handles the accounting and heavy lifting.

Krizia Martin’s attention to excellence has paid off with loyalty from the brands. Other than their location, the closest Lilly Pulitzer retailer to Clinton is Saratoga. Barbour, another exclusive brand carried by the store, has been holding their line’s availability in Saratoga with the hopes that Krizia Martin opens a location there in the future. A similar allegiance has developed with repeating customers over the years, especially with families from the College. “Having all the brands the College students love, we have a good amount of students as regular customers, as well as their parents,” said Gates. “They come to us for advice on where to get their car fixed, where to eat, what to do in the area when their parents or friends come for the weekend. … We form some great personal relationships with the students and their families.” Krizia Martin is located at 20 West Park Row in Clinton. The store is open Tuesday-Friday 11:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. and Saturday 10:00 a.m.–6:00 p.m.

We take our vehicles in for preventive maintenance, but many business owners get so busy running their businesses, there is little or no time left for a financial and operational review or strategic planning. Take some time this spring to evaluate every area of your business.

beauty salon owner was having budgetary financial issues. Although she had been in business for some time, she found that her current sales were not keeping up with all of her expenses. She was struggling to keep her business afloat. She is not alone. Many small businesses find themselves in the same situation. There are resources to help, but many small businesses don’t know what they are or how to access them. A business owner will try and do it all on his/her own—but that’s a big mistake. The president has a cabinet of subject-matter-experts that he trusts to advise him in running the country. Small businesses also need to surround themselves with people that can help them make sound business decisions. President Obama once said, “Small businesses are the engines

made. According to Entrepreneur magazine, small businesses represent more than 99.7 percent of all employers in the country. Seven out of 10 new employer firms survive at least 2 years, half at least 5 years, a third at least 10 years and a quarter stay in business 15 years or more, according to the Forbes website. Small businesses must be proactive to secure their sustainability for the long term. The beauty salon owner took the time to analyze her income and expenses and was able to make some important changes in the way she does business. She is now using an Excel summary worksheet to be able to enter her daily sales total and see at a glance the amount she can take as owner’s draw for that day as well as the amount to set aside for taxes.

Page 10 WEDNESDAY, APRIL 16, 2014 THE CLINTON COURIER said she was not given any warning that the piles would be ignited. “He could’ve been more considerate,” Warfel said on Thursday. “Right now, in my house, all I can smell is smoke. … He didn’t make any kind of contact.” After watching her brother’s house burn to the ground last year, the close flames struck a particularly sinister chord for Warfel. Others echoed her anxiety. “We could see the flames at times,” said Philip Collmer of Sanford Avenue. “You could see the smoke. Anyone that didn’t know what was going on

would think that someone’s house was on fire.” Gallagher said that with the waste burned down, it can now be easily hauled off the property. He sees the process as an investment in the land, which will eventually be used for planting and harvesting. “I know people that, when we’re done with it, will appreciate that the land is being used for crops and is not being developed,” said Gallagher. “If it caused a day or two of discomfort… a lot of things are going to turn out for the good.”

Beautiful & Practical...

Piles of brush smoulder throughout the day on April 9, on Route 233. SMOKE (Continued from page 1) smoke had dissipated. The fires were sporadically left unattended throughout the burning process. According to neighbors, this included a stretch during Wednesday night. “There were concerns that he wasn’t monitoring his stuff,” said Supervisor Meelan, “but at the time [that officers responded to the scene] he was.” Gallagher, who unsuccessfully attempted to burn the brush earlier this year, spoke with The Courier on the phone. He admitted that there was barbed wire and garbage in the piles that were burned, but maintained he did everything he could to follow the State’s regulations. “I contacted Oneida County Solid Waste Management, the DEC, and I called the Village and the Fire Department,” said Gallagher. “So, I’m not quite sure what else I was supposed to do. I don’t control which way the wind is blowing.” That wind, which wiped as high 20 miles per hour last Wednesday, cast a haze and the scent of a bonfire over

the surrounding area. In the Village, the School might have gotten hit the worst. According to Superintendent of Schools Matthew Reilly, measures were taken to protect the students. Children were pulled off the playground and univents in classrooms were temporarily closed off to prevent smoke from entering the building. “We recognized that the smoke can be an irritant,” said Reilly. “We wanted to ensure that no one had any respiratory issues.” Reilly admitted that it was “an unfortunate” situation, but understood it was not Gallagher’s intent to cause harm. Some neighbors were less patient with their reactions. Katie Warfel, whose house is closest to the burn site,

JV Baseball

By John Howard


oys varsity baseball has seen an enthusiastic start to their season, ousting multiple teams by double digit numbers. The team faced off against Adirondack on Friday to a hard-fought match but ended up coming away with a 4–2 victory. Much to the dismay of the Clinton crowd, senior Andrew Taft, a key hitter for the team, was intentionally walked every time he got to the plate on Friday. That, on top of eight walks and four hit batters helped attribute to the low scoring game. “Nobody really got a chance to swing the bat,” said Clinton head coach Tom Pfisterer. “And we didn’t hit with men on, that’s why we didn’t score the runs.”

Clinton was down their leadoff batter, Alex Dobrzenski, a senior, who had left early for a trip to Florida. The team will spend this week playing a series of games at Disney’s Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, Fla. At the time of publishing the team had won one and lost one of their games on the trip. They beat Caledonia 8–4 on April 14 and lost to T.C. Williams 3–6 on April 15. Despite the setbacks on Friday’s game, the team looked strong on defense, quenching any rally Adirondack attempted before it even got going. Ian Foxton, a senior, who pitched five solid innings, had 2 hits, including a triple. Lenny Otriz, a senior, also had

two hits. Meanwhile, a secondary competition was in the works. Brothers Reuben Hernandez, a junior at Clinton, and Elliot Hernandez, a senior at Adirondack, played on the same field but wore different uniforms. The sibling rivalry was complemented with plenty of sportsmanship. The game ended on a double play prompted by Jon Hardy, a junior, who finished the game on the mound. With a 3–0 record out of the gate, Pfisterer has high hopes for the team, which saw its first ever State final appearance last season. “We made a hell of a run last year,” said Pfisterer, “and we want to duplicate it this year.”

JV Baseball Still Finding Footing



V Baseball has started their season with three losses, but remains positive for the remainder of the spring. The team fell to Sauquoit Valley, Canastota and VVS, this past week. All games, other than the VVS

match, were played at home. “We’re 0–3,” said head coach Dominic Timpano, who moved up from modified two years ago. “We haven’t really come together yet, but we’re getting better. … It’s early.” Timpano hopes to turn the

losing trend around by encouraging “responsibility and discipline” within the roster and for the team to “come to play” at every game. Despite the record, the team’s morale is high. Positivity comes naturally from the bench.
