Storm passes, outages linger National Grid gets power back to tens of thousands ByLINE:  TIM BLYDENBURGH AND RICK KARLIN

As dusk and frigid temperatures descended on the region Saturday night, efforts to restore power to tens of thousands of people hit by a surprisingly powerful snow, wind and ice storm continued. National Grid, using a 1,200-worker force in eastern New York, hoped to have most customers back online overnight, though some places may not be back until later Sunday. The utility's map showed 21,000 without power at about 8 p.m. -- at one point 145,000 customers were affected. Saratoga and Warren counties were among the hardest hit. The utility said crews had removed downed trees, limbs, poles and other hazards since

early Friday morning. "This storm has been extremely damaging to our electricity system, especially in areas north of Saratoga," said Keith McAfee, National Grid's vice president of Electric Operations. "We continue to work closely with local officials to coordinate restoration efforts, and we're asking customers to remain aware of potential safety hazards such as damaged trees, particularly broken limbs that haven't yet fallen to the ground. We also ask that drivers use extreme caution as they approach work areas to ensure the safety of utility and other storm-response personnel." Temporary warming stations were set up Saturday in Warren County, among them the Townsend Elementary School, in Lake Luzerne. Forecasts call for lows down to zero into Sunday morning in some areas, though into

Whitney-owned painting sells for $3.1 Million ByLINE:  WENDY LIBERATORE

SARATOGA SPRINGS - The painting of a thoroughbred that hung for decades in Marylou Whitney's Kentucky living room has sold for $3.1 million. The large oil-on-canvas work was sold Jan. 31 as part of a Sotheby's auction of 19th-century European art. It was considered one of the finest examples of English artist Sir Alfred J. Munnings' output. Still, the sale price for "Mahmoud Being Saddled for the Derby," 1936 -- purchased in 1940 by Whitney's second

husband, Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney -- fell short of the $3.5 million the auction house hoped it would fetch. "All proceeds from Sotheby's sales will go to my greedy relative, Uncle Sam," Whitney's widower, John Hendrickson, said Monday. "I didn't want to sell anything, but I have to make business decisions." The painting is one of several items Hendrickson is selling to pay off the taxes on the estate of the late philanthropist and socialite, who died in July at age 93. The collection also includes another Munnings work, "My Horse

SARATOGA SPRINGS — City police are asking the community to beware of scammers posing as Saratoga Springs police. Police Lt. Robert Jillson said a scammer is calling people, identifying himself as a member of the department and telling the unsuspecting person that he or she has an outstanding arrest warrant. The scammer then tells the potential victim that they can make the warrant go away if he or she sends money. Complicating matters, Jillson said, is that the scammer has rigged its caller ID to match that of the Saratoga Springs Police Department. “It’s makes our job harder,” Jillson said. Jillson also said he believes this is the first time a scammer has used the department’s phone number. “We ask that when you may be in doubt with a call from SSPD, just ask to call the officer back at the police station,” an official warning from police states. “In cases where you receive a voicemail, the callback number for the officer should be our police department main number. If you are unsure of our number, search us on the internet and confirm our number.” Jillson said scammers often threaten to turn off power or suspend social security. Scammers also look to have victims pay them in gift cards. “Gift cards are not a method used by SSPD to take bail on a warrant or pay outstanding tickets and fines,” the public warning states. “But

it is a common way for scammers to make you a victim.” Jillson recommends that anyone who receives such acall should contact the police. The police also recommend that those searching for legitimate information on scams should look for websites that end in .org or .gov. — Wendy Liberatore

State IG: Two area contractors charged SARATOGA SPRINGS — Two Capital Region contractors are facing felony charges after allegedly failing to obtain workers’ compensation coverage for their construction workers. State Inspector General Letizia Tagliafierro said Thursday that Segundo Loja and Robert A. Lutz were arraigned in Saratoga Springs City Court on charges related to their failure to obtain coverage. Loga, an Albany resident and owner of NY Power Construction Corporation, allegedly submitted a certificate of insurance indicating his company had obtained both commercial general liability and workers’ compensation insurance coverage, as required by all entities with employees, she said. The inspector general confirmed with the carrier that his business, which had several workers, did not in fact carry insurance, she said. He was charged with falsifying business records, failure to secure compensation and fraudulent practices, all felonies. Lutz, a Ballston Spa man who owns Robert’s Roofing & Remodeling, was charged after he allegedly submitted a building permit application for a residential roofing job to the Saratoga Springs Building Department last July that claimed he had no employees. According to the IG’s office, multiple witnesses however

said they observed three people working on the job throughout the project, all of whom lacked coverage. He was charged with offering a false instrument for filing and fraudulent practices, both felonies, as well as failure to secure compensation, a misdemeanor.

Two charged in January burglary HOOSICK FALLS —Village police Thursday said they arrested Peters-burgh residents Zachary Deltoro, 26, and Natasha Michaels, 24, after an investigation into a Jan. 25 burglary. Michaels was charged with burglary, a felony, and petit larceny, a misdemeanor. Deltoro was charged with burglary, petit larceny and grand larceny, a felony. Chief Robert Ashe said the grand larceny charge was the result of a motor vehicle Deltoro took and sold without the owner’s permission, Ashe said. Both were arraigned and released pending their next date in Village Court. — Staff reports

Roots in Saratoga Springs' Fresh Market plaza said their Friday afternoon shutdown forced by the storm has done untold damage. "In our second year of business, we obviously can't afford to be closed right now and into the next two to three days," said Brandon Acres, Urban Roots owner, in a statement. "Everything we serve is fresh and we've lost all of our product. We are devastated by this loss of business and are now tasked with assessing the impact of lost sales, discarded products and lost wages for our employees."

mated, Seth Armitage, co-head of the 19th-century European art department at Sotheby's, said the auction house was pleased with the price. "(It's) the highest price achieved for PHOTOS COURTESY OF SOTHEBY'S the artist in the past decade, and the sixth top price for the artist ever at auc- "This necklace is tion," Armitage said. "It was a pleasure expected to fetch to have been entrusted with this mas- between $300,000 terwork from such a legendary figure and $500,000. as Marylou Whitney, whose passion left an indelible mark on the horse-racing world." The paintings were just two of Whitney's valuables expected to be sold by the high-end auction house. Next up will be four pieces of her jewelry, which are expected to go for a combined $1 million. The jewelry includes a 21.26-carat diamond ring, expected to attract between $250,000 and $350,000, and a necklace of natural pearls and diamonds that is expected to sell for between $300,000 and $500,000. Hendrickson will also sell a turquoise and diamond necklace, created around 1960, for between $15,000 and $20,000, and a 50-year-old necklace with emeralds, rubies, sapphires, and diamonds, which is expected to bring in between $75,000 and $100,000. Both necklaces were designed by David Webb, a New York jeweler to the stars who also made pieces for Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Elizabeth Taylor and Barbra Streisand. In addition to the jewelry, a Thomas Hart Benton painting owned by Whitney is headed to auction, though Sotheby's has yet to set a date. Hendrickson said a famous necklace that lost an emerald at Whitney's 1994 Canfield Casino gala will not be sold. The high-profile hunt for the jewel ended with its discovery the next day. Whitney rewarded the man who found it with a check for $5,000 and a day with her at the Saratoga Race Course. While some of her most precious gems will be sold at Sotheby's, the bulk of her jewelry, as well as her Jaguar sedan, are being sold this summer as a benefit for Saratoga Hospital, which will build a clinic at the race course's backstretch. The cost of the project is estimated to be around $1 million; Hendrickson has promised to pay the balance if the auction does not bring in enough to cover the price tag. Hendrickson said that he's building the clinic because improving the lives of backstretch workers was one of his wife's passions. For decades, Whitney hosted meals and activities for the workers who came into town for the summer's racing season. "In keeping with her philosophy, most of her belongings will go to a greater good," Hendrickson said.
