Horicon Day set for Sat.




By Thom Randall BRANT LAKE — An annual community festival that’s won over the hearts of area citizens is returning this Saturday Aug. 4 with more crafts, games, displays, music, fireworks and food than ever, organizers said this week. Last year ’s event was immensely popular, with crowds enjoying its wide variety of attractions. Citizens have credited the Horicon Day festival with restoring community spirit to its high levels decades ago. To be held beginning at noon at the Horicon Community Center off Rte. 8 and the nearby firehall, Horicon day features vendors, crafts, a car and boat show, displays by civic groups demonstrations by crafters, live entertainment, a community softball competition, and children’s activities and games. Activities for youth include a rock climbing wall, a pie eating contest, a greased watermelon contest, and a three-legged race — in addition to face painting and a bounce house.

By Thom Randall LAKE GEORGE — A proposal to build an eight-story hotel in downtown Lake George is now under consideration by the Lake George Village Zoning Board of Appeals.

The hotel, envisioned as 86 feet tall, is to be a full-service enterprise with banquet facilities. It is proposed for the plot on Canada St. north of Amherst St. that now hosts Giuseppe's Pizzeria and Restaurant. Proposing the development is Dave Kenny, who owns Marine Village across the street from Giuseppe’s, as

well as the Inn at Erlowest. He also developed the Adirondack Outlet Mall just south of Lake George. The hotel is to feature 114 guest rooms —most of them suites. The application for a variance from the Zoning Board cites that the hotel would boost local commerce. “(The hotel) would be beneficial to

LAKE GEORGE — A brand-new patrol boat is now enforcing laws on Lake George — thanks to New York State’s generosity, Warren County Sheriff Bud York told county supervisors Monday July 30.

P7 P11

P14 P16-19

Received from the state several weeks ago, the boat was put into official service Monday. It’s arrival represented perfect timing in terms of protecting public safety, York said. The boat was first dispatched in Bolton for the annual boating rendezvous known as Log Bay Day, which is a meetup employees of

lakeside accommodations, restaurants and other businesses. In recent years, the alcohol-fueled party at Log Bay, which attracts more than 1,000 young adults, has resulted in more than a few injuries and arrests. Several weeks ago, the county Sheriff ’s office was given a new 24foot Boston Whaler patrol boat by

the state office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, with a purpose of supporting patrols on Lake George, York said. He estimated that the craft, which has two 200-horsepower engines, was worth $100,000. The craft has replaced a patrol boat that was at the end of its useful CONTINUED ON PAGE 5

Jamboree successful, attracts crowd despite Facebook rumor WARRENSBURG — A robust crowd attended the annual Smoke Eaters’ Jamboree — despite a rumor that circulated on Facebook that the fundraiser for the local fire company was rained out on Saturday evening. Warrensburg Volunteer Fire Co. President Kevin Geraghty said Monday July 30 he was pleased with the turnout for the annual carnival-like event that celebrated its 50th anniversary this year. “Friday we had good attendance, but Saturday, we were a little disappointed,” he said, noting that firefighters received calls inquiring about a false message on Facebook that the event was cancelled. “We didn’t have a drop of rain, despite the weather predictions.”

Geraghty said he would be contacting the Warren County Sheriff ’s Department to obtain advice on the feasibility of suing the rumor perpetrator for lost revenue. “I don’t know anything about Facebook, but I plan on taking action against whoever did this,” he said. “We don’t ever cancel the Jamboree due to rain.” Geraghty said the turnout was very light early Saturday evening, although the crowd did swell later that night to about 1,300. Attendance on Friday’s installment of the Jamboree, which featured an auction of donated goods, was about 1,000, he said. Bids were generous on the new and used merchandise and services, he said. Jim Galusha of Thurman served as auctioneer, like he has for at least three decades. Local businesses and individuals donated such items as a truckload of split firewood, three pallets of architectural stone, an array

of furniture, a new premium bicycle, as well as tools and miscellaneous household goods. The auction lasted four hours, Geraghty said, noting that the auction yielded substantial revenue, despite no boats or trucks up for bid as in other years. “We did well without any big-ticket items,” Geraghty said. While the adults were busy Friday evening with the auction, children enjoyed the carnival rides, two clowns, and the midway games — as well as merely socializing. Dozens of youths, ranging from youngsters to teens, also participated in two events brought back for the 50th anniversary — a pie eating contest and a three-legged sack race, both of which prompted plenty of smiles. Geraghty said that overall, the 50th installment of the town’s premier summer fes-

Pie-eating contest tival went well. “On Saturday, the crowd enjoyed the fireworks and the music by the AudioStars — they sounded good,” he said. “And as in years past, we had generous support from the community.”

L.G. skate park donations sought Area residents and visitors are asked to help out the Lake George Skateboard Park with a donation. In the planning process for five years, the skate park is designed and expected to be constructed as soon as next spring. Several of the youth who as high-schoolers launched the crusade for the park’s development have now graduated high school, but they are still working in raising funds to get the park constructed. To raise money and awareness for the proposed park, skateboarding demonstrations will be held Aug. 4, 8, 25 and 29 at Blais Park off Beach Road, near the Canada St. intersection. Donations for the skateboard park may be sent to Lake George Village Hall, PO Box 791 Lake George N.Y. 12845. Make checks payable to: Committee for a

Year-Round Recreation Center, and in the check’s memo field, write “skate park.”

Horicon Day from page 1

Warren County’s new marine patrol boat, donated by the state, features high-technology equipment including side-scan sonar, radar, GPS and electronic navigation. Able to detect bodies and large items underwater, the sophisticated sonar will aid in investigations conducted by the county Sheriff’s office, officials said this week. Photo provided

from page 1 life due to excess mileage on its engines, the sheriff said. York said that the new boat is equipped with the latest technology including side-scan sonar, radar, GPS and electronic navigation. Able to detect bodies and other items underwater, the side-scan sonar is likely to be useful in investigations, York said. Already, state Parks and Recreation is providing half of the county’s annual cost of providing the boat patrol, which consists of two officers on duty — six are trained and qualified — as well as two boats. One smaller third boat is assigned to patrol the lakes in northern Warren County. This boat is rotated between Brant Lake, Loon Lake and

Schroon Lake. “The state wants to see the lakes patrolled,” he said. York said the new Boston Whaler patrol boat was on a permanent loan to the county to use as long as it’s needed, but must be returned to the state when the county takes it out of service. York said his department appreciated the gift. “We needed to buy one, but I like ‘free’ better,” he said, noting the state gave him only five days to decide whether to take it — not enough time to garner official approval from county supervisors. “I didn’t want to turn it down.” Supervisors serving on the county Public Safety Committee endorsed York’s acceptance of the gifts. For log Bay Day, the county Sheriff ’s office dispatched its two patrol boats,

and the state Police, Department of Environmental Conservation and the Lake George Park Commission and the Washington County Sheriffs Office all ramped up their law enforcement for the event, with additional personnel assigned to patrol in boats, on foot along the shoreline as well as setting set up a sobriety checkpoint or two on a nearby roadway.

Drug testing not the answer One Nation under God


here is just something about a person kicked back on a couch, stoned out of his mind, giggling away at Seinfeld reruns while stuffing his face with taxpayer-funded Cheetos that makes your blood boil. If you are living off the government, your full-time occupation should be getting off the public dime, not doing bong hits with the baby sleeping in the next room. So, it’s pretty easy to get behind the Warren County supervisors’ efforts to require citizens relying on public assistance to submit to random drug testing. It’s easy to agree with Horicon Supervisor Ralph Bentley’s point that workers in the public and private sectors already must submit to these tests to keep their jobs. It’s easy to agree that people collecting taxpayer-subsidized benefits be required to do the same. And, it’s easy to concur with Bentley that people on public assistance who are misusing public money to get high instead of put food on the table should lose the privilege. All of that sounds completely reasonable and an effort worth getting behind. The reason we cannot back this idea, however, is because we don’t believe Bentley or a majority of the Warren County Board of Supervisors is looking at the big picture. Here’s the underlying question: Just who are the “freeloaders,” as Bentley put it, that the supervisors are targeting? Are they people who take advantage of the most popular benefit programs such as Medicaid, unemployment and food stamps? That only scratches the surface of the benefits offered under the gargantuan umbrella labeled “public assistance.” At last count, there were more than 1,800 so called “entitlement” programs at the federal level. And that’s just the federal level. According to an analysis of 2010 Census data by George Mason University, more than one in three Americans lived in households last year that received Medicaid, food stamps or some other means-based government assistance. When Social Security, Medicare and unemployment benefits are factored in, nearly half of the nation lives in a household that receives some kind of public assistance. That’s more than 155 million Americans.

Are we going to drug test half of all Americans? Figuring a conservative rate of $20 per test and randomly testing all 155 million people twice a year, the cost for testing alone would be over $3 billion. Not to mention the cost of administering the program. So it begs the question: Where do we draw the line on who to test? If Uncle Sam is going to require testing of those on Medicaid, Medicare, Food Stamps, unemployment and Social Security, would you also require testing of people who use programs such as Women, Infants and Children (WIC), housing assistance or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families? That is 14 percent of the population in those three programs alone. How about college students who receive Pell grants? How about those who get veteran’s or disability benefits? How about those who receive tax credits or farmers who receive agricultural assistance? How about kids who receive free and reduced school lunches or seniors who receive heating assistance? Where does it end? I doubt even the supervisors themselves would be immune from testing if all those variables were factored in — certainly not if we were to include their extended families. So, while the concept of testing welfare recipients to determine if taxpayer subsidies are being used as they were intended is a commendable one, the idea of drug and alcohol testing anyone who takes advantage of a public assistance program is not. And, as we see it, you can’t segregate one group over another. The Constitution doesn’t allow it. Perhaps a more laudable goal to get behind would be a nation of less entitlement. Unfortunately, drug and alcohol testing would have a negligible impact on that goal at best, while costing taxpayers billions of dollars. This editorial is the collaborative opinion of a board comprised of Thom Randall, Fred Herbst, Shaun Kittle, Keith Lobdell, Stephen Bartlett, Andy Flynn, and John Gereau. Comments should be directed to


o other country in the world enjoys the freedoms and the prosperity that we do in the United States. The grand experiment, launched so many years ago, was to create a country free from tyranny with each person free to pursue life, liberty and happiness under the self-evident truth that all are created equal and endowed by their creator with unalienable rights. The concept that we are “One nation under God” continues to be challenged by groups offended by the concept that so many hold dear. One such group is the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF). This group has skillfully used the freedoms we enjoy to create an educational, watchdog organization that is made up of “free-thinkers,” agnostics and atheists that aim to keep church and state separate through what they claim is “persuasion and education.” Recently it forced the leaders in the city of Steubenville, Ohio with the threat of a lawsuit aimed at changing their official logo because it included a silhouette of a cross from the Franciscan University Chapel. Despite the fact that the Franciscan School is one of the leading employers in the area and one of the most recognized entities in the city, the fact that they are religiously based apparently means that their contribution to the community should not be recognized. Organizations like FFRF are now taking advantage of cash strapped communities and governments who fear lawsuits while struggling with ever-shrinking budgets. Most recently, and without discussion, Essex County Board of Supervisors Chairman Randy Douglas decided to abandon the practice of prayer before the board’s monthly meetings after reading a newspaper editorial suggesting that prayer had no place in government. The editorial was responding to recent discussions in Washington County over the wording of the prayer offered by their official chaplain, causing the New York Civil Liberties Union to threaten suit. In this case, without NYCLU even asking, chairman Douglas led the retreat to abandon prayer, instead of investigating other modifications so as to make it acceptable. When you look at the sacrifices made by

the early citizens of this country, and those throughout the ages who fought and died for Dan Alexander these freeThoughts from doms, I have to Behind the Pressline wonder how they would have reacted to the threat of a lawsuit? The King of England, with his world-powerful army and navy, didn’t cause our early leaders to back down from what they believed to be truth, right and just, but today all it takes is a small minority armed with a few lawyers and constitutional interpretations to end longstanding traditions. We need leaders who lead the charge, not the retreat. Make no mistake about it, respect for a supreme being is woven into the fabric of our country and is worth preserving in our government institutions as well as our private lives. What is the first thing we turn to when tragedy strikes as it did recently in Colorado or following 911? It’s our faith and hope that there is more to life than just this world we inhabit for a short time. There must be room in this country and its government for all forms of religious and spiritual beliefs: Christian, Hindu, Judaism, Buddhist, Jehovah’s Witness, Muslim, Mormons, Scientologists, Pagans, Atheists and many, many others. We should be able to agree that we each have strong feelings for our beliefs but we must respect each other ’s right to honor those beliefs as each sees fit, without hindering or overtly offending the other. I understand and agree with the Establishment Clause that prohibits our government from establishing an official religion or showing preference among religions or between religion and non-religion. The Free Exercise Clause prohibits the government from burdening an individual’s ability to exercise his or her religious beliefs if the burden does not arise from neutral law of general applicability but instead infringes upon a particular set CONTINUED ON PAGE 7

•192 Years Ago – Aug. 1820•

Man comes back from the dead Mr. Bradley Treadwell, aged 31 years, who manifested great composure and resignation to the will of Heaven, died Aug. 19, 1820 in Weston, Conn. after an illness of five days. The circumstances of his death are truly extraordinary. On the morning of the 19th he gave the parting hand to all present. When all supposed him to be dead, the neighbors were sent for to lay him out. About four hours after the suspension of life, when they were proceeding to lay him out, he was observed to have a small motion in his breast, which surprised the bystanders and soon increased signs of life began to appear. When one present spoke to him he attempted to answer by making a faint noise which again terribly surprised them. He than suddenly as from a sleep, arose in his bed, and sat up. The first words he uttered were, “I have seen glorious things since I have been gone.” — which was about four hours. “It appears to me that I have been gone four or five days. I have seen the New-Jerusalem, with all its habitable beauties, and heard the sweet music of angels. I have seen and drank of the waters of life, which have cured me. My conductor told me I must return for a small space, and tell my friends and neighbors to prepare to meet me in that happy place.” He continued to comfort and exhort all present, the remainder of his time with great earnestness, which was about four or five hours. He also said, “I saw and heard the weeping of my friends, from beyond the mountains and heard the echo and re-echo and was told by my conductor to tell them not to mourn for me, but for themselves.” He continued in this state ‘til he expired and sweet-

ly fell asleep in Jesus. The above and foregoing was communicated to Seth Hall, the subscriber, by a person who was present at the time, and whose veracity may be relied on, along with many other unexceptionable witnesses.

Bondservant escapes Five Dollars Reward: Ran away from the subscriber, on the first of May, an indented boy named Simeon Smith, aged 14 years. Wearing a black coat, hat and striped pantaloons when he went away. Said boy is of a middling size, darkish complexion, black eyes and dark colored hair. All persons are forbid harboring or trusting said boy under penalty of the law. Whoever will give information to the subscriber, where said boy may be found, shall receive the above reward. Laban Pratt, Shrewsbury, Vt. August 30, 1820. (Note: In the early years of the U.S., many immigrants served a period of indented labor in order to pay off the cost of their boat ride here. A common practice in the 17th and 18th centuries, over half of immigrants and their children of that era worked off an average of three years’ servitude. Their indenture was oft times similar to slavery.)

100 Years Ago, July-Aug. 1820

Big people in a small world A baby boy in the family of Paul Bres, who lives on a farm near Ottawa, Canada, is 26 months old and weighs 127 pounds. He is believed to be the biggest child in the world for his age. This giant baby has a chest measurement of 40 inches. His parents are normal in physique. (Note…In England, on May 31, 1820, “Mr. Bradley,” the Yorkshire giant died. He measured nine feet in length and three feet across his shoulders. Many cultures believe that giants were the first race

Glens Falls builds new street Ground was broken July 8, 1912 at the rear of the Byrne property next to the YMCA on Glen St. for a new business block to be erected by Byron Lapham, president of the Glens Falls National Bank and Charles A. Hovey, who recently purchased the property. A new street, 20 feet in width will run along the lot next to the YMCA. The dirt being excavated will be used to grade the premises of Mr. Lapham on Maple Street. In other news, the Christian Scientists of Glens Falls have built a new $10,000 church. The cornerstone was laid Oct. 18, 1911 by Virgil O. Strickler, a lawyer of Boston.

Thomson family news Mr. and Mrs. Lewis Thomson entertained a party of Mrs. Thomson’s relatives this past summer at their palatial home on Upper Main St., Warrensburg in honor of their 30th wedding anniversary. They were married May 16, 1882 in Queensbury, in the home of the bride, Miss Phebe Sisson. The officiating clergyman, Rev. Robinson is now dead as is also more than half of the guests who witnessed the original ceremony. The destroying angel has been merciful as no deaths have occurred among Phebe Thomson’s nine brothers and sisters. Her 84-year-old mother was present at the gathering but the brothers and sisters are widely scattered in various states and were unable to be present at the festive occasion. (Note: The Lewis Thomson mansion, built in 1906, is today Cornerstone Victorian, the bed and breakfast establishment of Doug and Louise Goettsche.)

The Thurman Fall Farm Tour is seeking crafters, artisans, knitters, jewelry makers and vendors of all kinds. On Columbus Day weekend, Oct. 6 & 7, a craft and vendor show will be set up outside The Glen Lodge as part of the Thurman Fall Farm Tour. Contact Aimee Azaert at The Glen Lodge at 494-4984 for an application, or download one from the Farm Tour page at The fee for space is $25 for both days. Both the Thurman Station Association and the John Thurman Historical Society are always seeking new members. The John Thurman Historical Society is now planning for its annual community calendar, which is published in November. These calendars would make lovely holiday gifts. The theme for the 2013 issue will relate to the past 200 years in Thurman, in honor of the 2013 Warren County bicentennial. Residents of Thurman who wish to share old photos of people and places that represent 20 decades of life in this part of the county, are urged to contact Joan Harris at 6232007 or Perky Granger at 623-9305. Photos will be scanned and the originals returned to their owners. This is a way to honor our ancestors and our past.

A donation of $1 per date is requested. Those dates also will be included in the widely-distributed 2013 town brochures that will be sent to Warren County Tourism. For details, contact Perky at 6239305 or In case an emergency situation arises are you ready? An emergency supply kit could include lots of water for all family members and pets, food, plenty of non-perishable food, at least a three-day supply per person of non-perishable food, infant formula and diapers, pet food, a battery-powered or hand-crank radio, flashlights and extra batteries, a first-aid kit, a whistle to signal for help, plus disposable moist towelettes, garbage bags and plastic ties for personal sanitation. Supplies may also include a wrench or pliers to turn off utilities, a manual can opener, local maps, a cell phone with chargers, inverter or solar charger. For details, see:

Drought affecting local farmers Thurman and surrounding areas have been affected by drought this summer. Many farmers have been irrigating, a thing that is often unheard of in our area. Between this and the recent insurgence of locusts that have descended upon us, several farmers large and small alike have been concerned about their crops. The severe weather that arrived July 26 alleviated the drought, but only temporarily. At what price did we get this relief? Is Thurman going to receive another slap in the face from Mother Nature? I certainly hope not.

Thoughts on back to school There are only five weeks until school resumes. The first day of school at Warrensburg Central is Tuesday Sept. 5. Have you been continuing your children’s education this summer, or just having a lot of fun with them? There’s still time to get them ready for school by reading to them or having them read to you, working on math facts, spelling or grammar. One of my personal favorites is “word of the day.” I have a son entering kindergarten this fall, so over a week we discuss what a certain word means. Also, we can teach our children science by describing how nutrients feed one’s vegetable garden. Stop in to your local pharmacy and grab some PH strips, mix some soil and water and test the PH of the soil your veg-

Chester, after a short illness. The deceased was a French chef of great ability and in the 1870s and 1880s he was employed in various summer hotels at Lake George, commanding a large salary. For the past 20 years or more he had been chef at the Chester House and the dishes he prepared have made that hotel famous for its table. He was probably about 70 years old. (Note: The Chester House was on the north corner of Chester ’s main street and Thierot Avenue. I remember Carl Turner when he lived on Turner Road just off the west side of the Starbuckville Dam and I believe that he was Louis Tournier ’s son.)

News roundabout A hollow walking stick which holds a pint of whatever brand of liquor the owner fancies is the current craze. These sticks are extremely popular in some of the no-license dry communities in this area. Mrs. Benton lost 45 chickens on her place in Chestertown on July 21, 1912, which was evidently the prey of some animal. The next day she set a trap and caught a big fat raccoon in it. Edwin H. Floyd is building a barber shop across the street from Charles Bump’s in Adirondack. L.M. Carpenter has improved his barn there by building underground stables. C.H. Russell has rebuilt his wheelwright shop into an automobile garage in Pottersville. John Hitchcock is cutting his mother ’s hay on her village lot in Bakers Mills. He reports a good crop. Terry’s Hotel and garage in North Caldwell, two miles south of Waynesburg, has been open since last fall and caters to automobile parties as a specialty. They stock a choice selection of wines and liquors. William Terry is the proprietor. Readers are welcome to contact Adirondack Journal correspondent Jean Hadden at or 623-2210.

Alexander from page 6 of beliefs. But the common denominator to nearly all religious belief is the belief in a Supreme Being. We use different names when we refer to this “Being” and have established unique customs, but the belief in something larger and more universal than our own immediate environment is what this country stands to protect, not diminish. There is room for non-believers, but their rights should also not infringe on the vast majority in this country who do practice their faith in an outward manner. In turn our government officials should not have to hide their beliefs, nor should communities be restrained when demonstrating pride in their faithbased community members and the symbols they use to represent that faith. In my opinion, a country with no faith basis, made up of non-believers, is just as intolerable as a country endorsing a single religious faith. This country’s diversity and melting pot has served us well through the centuries. Our courts need to quit attacking religion and slowly chipping away its importance in our society. Newspaper editors that call for no prayer should stay focused on the First Amendment and the freedom of speech and freedom of the press because once our religious freedoms are legislated away restrictions on those other cherished freedoms won’t be far behind. As for Mr. Douglas in Essex County, N.Y., why not consider a moment of reflection prior to board meetings, encouraging the members to consider the issues they are about to undertake and look for wisdom and guidance from a source of their own choosing? We frequently ask for God to bless America both in song and prayer. I hope those blessings continue to provide our leaders, our courts and all Americans with the wisdom to accept and tolerate our differences while growing our love and respect for the country we all call home.

BOLTON LANDING — Lizzie Borden, the notorious figure in American folklore, is to be portrayed by actress Ellen Barry in a presentation 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 4 at The Sembrich in Bolton. Did Lizzie Borden kill her tightfisted father and stepmother? While the issue has been debated for many decades, this next week The Sembrich audience decides, exactly 120 years after the murder occurred. The infamous axe-murders of Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Borden on Aug. 4, 1892 rocked the blue-collar town of Fall River, Mass. and made headlines that splashed across New England newspapers, launching speculation about the guilt or innocence of their spinster daughter/step-daughter Lizzie — a question that persists to this day. The Sembrich presents Ellen Barry in the one-woman offBroadway play “Lizzie Borden at Eight O’Clock,” directed by Ken Tigar, and written by Mitch Giannunzio, who will be in attendance. The audience will gather in the intimate Sembrich studio to become characters in the play — Fall River

August 4, 2012

townspeople who have, rightly or wrongly, judged Lizzie’s role in the crime and must now reassess their opinions—if they can. Reviewer Di Jayawicrkrema describes the play: “Lizzie Borden strides onto the minimal stage in an ankle-length black dress…and restages her trial to prove why she couldn’t have done it…while unwittingly providing several reasons why she could have.” In other reviews, the production is said to be “a nuanced, quietly captivating production … Ellen Barry's Lizzie is at once a sympathetic figure and a cold, unhinged woman who does seem capable of murder—and who reminds us of what we in turn might be capable of ...” Guests are invited to come early for a pre-performance talk at 6 p.m.: “Lizzie Borden: the Opera, an introduction to Jack Beeson’s American opera classic.” Tickets for the evening are $25. For more information, see:, or call: 644-2431.

The drawing is to be

held Sunday Sept. 2 in Rogers Memorial Park. You do not need to be present to win. For details, or to purchase tickets, contact the church at: 644-9613.

Volunteers sought for Lake George cleanup day LAKE GEORGE — Area residents are now being recruited to volunteer to help clean up the shoreline and waters of Lake George in a community event titled Keep the Queen Clean Day, set for Saturday, Aug. 4. The event is sponsored by the Lake George Waterkeeper . Waterkeeper employee Kathy Bozony said that her agency is committed to keeping the lake clean of litter, and local citizens are encouraged to join the effort. Litter in Lake George and around its beautiful shoreline is unsightly and a pollution threat to the lake and its water quality,” she said in a prepared statement. Litter has been seen not only on the lake’s surface, shoreline and surface, but on the lake-bottom, particularly on a “litter trail” that follows the north-south boat traffic corridor. The Aug. 4 Keep the Queen Clean effort will include work in all of the towns within the Lake George watershed. Signed up already are members of area water quality committees and the lake George Island Campers Association, volunteer groups, and many individuals. The Lake George Island Campers Association is committed to help clean up the islands in the lake. Special litter bags and designated locations for free dropoff will be provided for the litter and debris collected, but

citizens may utilize their own disposal methods, Bozony said. Volunteers will be wading, snorkeling and scuba diving to retriever litter, while other volunteers can assist from the shoreline by collecting and bagging trash that’s located. Mesh bags will be provided to scuba divers and snorkelers. Cleanup along the shore, streams and public places will also be undertaken, Bozony said.

Surrender of Fort to be observed LAKE GEORGE – Fort William Henry is to hold a ceremony Thursday, Aug. 9 to commemorate the 255th anniversary of the surrender of the fort. The free event will take place in the fort at noon. Fort William Henry was built by the British during the French and Indian War (1754-1763) as an outpost to secure its colonies’ northern border against the French. In 1757, French forces serving under Marquis de Montcalm moved south from their base at Fort Carillon (Ticonderoga) and lay siege to the fort. After six days of fighting, during which the fort’s cannons and mortar burst from overuse — and facing little chance of reinforcements from

“All levels of participation are welcome,” she said, adding that shoreline neighbors can work with each other to identify appropriate tasks. “We’d like to see everyone join us with this cleanup, as each individual’s effort will make a difference — Lake George needs our help.” For details or to register, see: or call: 668-5913.

Fort Edward — Lt. Col. Monro was forced to surrender to Montcalm. After the garrison abandoned the fort and began their march to Fort Edward, the columns were attacked by the Native American allies of the French. This event was the basis for James Fenimore Cooper ’s classic novel, “The Last of the Mohicans.” During the Aug. 9 commemoration, there will be a reading of the surrender terms, a wreath laying ceremony at the grave of the unknowns, and a musket-volley salute. Dan Donahue, Fort William Henry’s lead guide and interpreter will serve as master of ceremonies. Actors of The Last of the Mohicans Outdoor Drama will be participating in the ceremony. Fort William Henry & Museum is located at 48 Canada St. Call 964-6626.

village,” the application reads. It adds that the development represents progressive planning because the eight-story configuration reduces sprawl by having a limited footprint while accommodating many visi-

tors. The application noted that the hotel would offer easy access to nearby amenities. The zoning variance is a governmental requirement because the village’s existing regulations limit a hotel’s height, without special permission, to three stories. A variance would also be required from the Adirondack Park Agency. Guests at the hotel would use a large parking lot that Kenny already owns. Located behind Giuseppe’s, the lot is now operated in a joint temporary agreement, between Kenny and the Village, as a municipal lot. The site plan and conceptual development drawings were prepared by Rucinski Hall Architecture of Saratoga Springs. The plans were submitted to the Zoning Board of Appeals, which is scheduled to review the application at a public hearing Sept. 5. The addition of a 114room hotel to the downtown

Americader wins $20k in Rotary Club raffle By Thom Randall LAKE GEORGE — A long-time attendee of the Americade motorcycle rally has won the jackpot of $20,000 in an annual raffle conducted by the Lake George Rotary Club. Held for 10 consecutive years during the Americade rally to raise funds for local not-for-profit groups, the raffle sported a new a new feature this year: winner ’s choice of a Honda Gold Wing, a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, or $20,000 in cash. L.J. Bolling, 65, of Philadelphia, a motorcycling enthusiast who said he doesn’t gamble much at all, held the winning ticket. Bolling claimed the $20,000 in cash since he already owned a 2009 Kawasaki Vulcan Voyager. Bolling described his win Monday July 30 in a phone interview. “When I do gamble, I spend just $5 or so maximum, but for this raffle, I bought $40 worth of tickets,” he said, noting that at Americade 2011, he saw a lot of people claim raffle prizes, and it looked like fun — so at the 2012 rally he bought a wad of tickets. “It was pretty exciting to win the top prize this year.” Bolling recently retired from work as a draftsman and an electrical testing troubleshooter. A Marine Corps veteran who served in Viet Nam, Bolling

is on disability from wounds received in combat there. Just several weeks ago, he spent most of his winnings buying a new Hyundai Sonata, Bolling said. “I’m still numb over the win,” he said. Rotary publicist Joanne Gavin noted that more than $13,000 in profits from the 2012 raffle were distributed in grants to 14 local charitable and civic groups, to aid their community outreach efforts. The 2012 grant recipients were: the Association for the Hearing Impaired, Caldwell-Lake George Library, Caritas, House of Grace, the Lake George Land Conservancy, Glens Falls Literacy New York, Mito Hope & Help, North Country Ministry, North Country Wild Care, Operation Santa Claus, Project Life Saver, Under the Woods Foundation, the Warren County Historical Society, Lake George Women in Need, and the Rotary International Foundation. Over 235 volunteers from local service organizations worked throughout Americade week selling over 4,500 raffle tickets, she said. “The Lake George Rotary Club of Lake George thanks all the volunteers, Rotary members, and Americade founder Bill Dutcher along with the Americade crew for their tireless efforts to assist us in helping our local communities in the spirit of “service above self,’” she said. The Rotary Club meets at 6:15 every Monday night at the Lake George Holiday Inn. For details, contact the club’s secretary at or 636-4310.

Lake George Dinner Theatre Bear Cupboard now open boosts local charity ‘Love List’ charms audience LAKE GEORGE — A performance last week of a romantic comedy will be aiding the work of an agency in helping families of northern Warren County facing hardships. July 27, the Lake George Dinner Theatre hosted a benefit showing of The Love List to raise money for North Country Ministry. The Dinner Theatre hosted about 50 people affiliated with the agency at the dinner performance of the play, and has pledged to donate nearly $500 to the organization. Before the show, Dinner Theatre Producer Terry Rabine told the audience that 2012 is the theater ’s second year of hosting a benefit for the agency, and that he hopes that other organizations will partner with him in the future with an objective of aiding other vital human service efforts. “We’re very proud and grateful that we’re able to reach out to the community and help organizations like North Country Ministry in their mission,” he said. North Country Ministry director Jill Harrington said the donation was much appreciated, as the agency serves about 1,000 individuals and families each month with emergency services, clothing, furniture and other necessities. “We both appreciate and enjoy our evenings at the Lake George Dinner The-

atre. It gives us an opportunity to raise needed funds, socialize with our membership and enjoy the dinner and show,” she said. Through October, the Lake George Dinner Theatre is presenting Norm Foster ’s comedy The Love List in nightly dinner shows Wednesday through Saturday, plus matinees Tuesday through Thursday until November. Foster ’s play follows Bill and Leon who fill out a matchmaking list of the ten qualities they desire in a female companion. When a woman possessing all of the qualities on the list appears at Bill’s door and seems to know his deepest secrets, the men are off on a hysterical mission to figure out who she is. Rabine said that so far this summer, audiences have received the show with enthusiasm. “Our audiences have been debating during intermission whether the mystery woman was real or not. That’s a response that we didn’t expect and we’re having a ball keeping them in the dark until the play’s conclusion,” he said. Tickets for The Love List are available e at: or the LGDT box office at 668-5762 ext. 411. Those who wish to contribute to North Country Ministry may call the agency at (518) 251- 4460.

QUEENSBURY — Bear Cupboard home furnishings store, for years a landmark business in Warrensburg, has reopened in Queensbury with an expanded inventory and new services. Now situated at 730 Upper Glen St. across from New Way Lunch, the enterprise is owned and operated by Kelly Irish. The store, formerly concentrating on rustic Adirondack furnishings, was operated in Warrensburg from 1998 until the economy collapsed in 2007. Irish reopened Bear Cupboard this April with expanded lines of furniture, lamps and accessories in a wide range of styles, including traditional country, Early American and contemporary in addition to the Adirondack motif, she said. Bear Cupboard offers a wide selection of sofas, chairs, coffee and end tables, as well as wall décor. "We're getting quite a following now, and it's not just for the rustic theme," she said. "If a customer has something in mind that we don't have, I can locate what they desire and order it." The store's inventory includes a lot of one-of-a-kind items crafted by local artisans, including birchbark home accessories by John Greco, downsized decorative wooden canoes by Kei-

Bel Canto singers to perform BOLTON LANDING -- The Bel Canto Institute Singers will present “A Night in Florence” at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 9, in The Sembrich, 4800 Lakeshore Drive, Bolton Landing. Each summer a select group of singers is invited for four weeks of intensive vocal training at the Bel Canto Institute in Florence, Italy under the guidance of Institute founder Jane Klaviter. The singers chosen for Bel Canto’s 2012 program — Jenette Luna, mezzo soprano; Brett Pardue, baritone; Nicole Hodgins, soprano and Veronica Santoro, soprano — will transport the audience to Florence in a performance that celebrates the beauty of the voice with a program of songs and arias from the land that gave birth to opera.Tickets to the performance are $20 each.

To the Adirondack Journal: The Chestertown Farmers Market has been a huge success and we thank all the vendors and customers who have helped make this happen. However, five of our signs advertising the market have been stolen over the past two weeks — two around Loon Lake and THREE around Brant Lake. We find this very discouraging as we are a not-for-profit group and many volunteers have donated their time and energy to make

this a success and bring people into downtown Chestertown. These likable “tomato” signs cost us $10 a piece and we would be glad to sell you one if you'd like a souvenir — as we can’t imagine anyone local not wanting to help us promote the area — but please stop stealing them as it costs us valuable time and money to replace them each week. Thank you in advance and we hope to see you at the Market! Cindy Mead, President Chestertown Farmers Market
