Local battles invasive weed




Railroads on Parade benefit PAGE 3

By Thom Randall


WARRENSBURG — Local resident John Wulfken grabbed a branch off a bamboo-like dense shrub that had recently grown to be about 25 feet long at the town landfill. “This is nothing,” he said, looking at various six-foottall stands of Japanese Knotweed circling the landfill. “I can show you places that are really infested with this fast-growing weed.” John Wulfken talked Aug. 12 of how Japanese Knotweed is now spreading through the hamlet of Warrensburg, taking over back yards, vacant lots, and threatening property values as its roots grow horizontally underground, sending up dense shoots that quickly crowd out other plants. “People don’t understand what a threat this can be, and how hard it is to get rid of it,” Wulfken continued, observing that it often grows

showcased the accomplishments of 4H youth. The fair attracted all ages, with its displays and demonstrations of traditional skills, tools and crafts of bygone days, as well as the familiar youth fair talent show, horse show and youth produce and craft competitions. The fair was a first-ever collabora-

tion between the Warren County Historical Society and the 4-H program of Cornell Cooperative Extension.The day-long event featured a square dance, horseshoe competitions, 19th century games and story telling. There were 4-H exhibits and displays by Cornell Cooperative Extension in the county fairgrounds beside and in


Warrensburg leaders to fine-tune property upkeep law

Heritage Festival attracts all generations




WARRENSBURG — Local residents confronted the Warrensburg Town Board with their criticisms of the proposed town property maintenance law, and the panel agreed to reconsider some of the pending or-


P17 P20-22

dinance’s provisions. A workshop meeting to re-examine the ordinance has been set for 4 p.m. Wednesday Sept. 5, and the public is invited to attend and observe. Criticisms were aired that the property maintenance law might be too strict, be selectively enforced, or be a burden on some homeowners to

comply with. Town officials countered that the proposed law was primarily a tool to force cleanup of abandoned and foreclosed properties in town. Town Supervisor Kevin Geraghty said the law was also an effort to protect the property values of neighbors of unkempt properties. The proposed ordinance forces

property owners to mow their grass, remove dead limbs, trim their shrubs, repair unsound structures, and dispose of trash. Not only are structures required to be kept in good repair, but their overhangs, gutters and canopies must be painted to prevent weathering. Fences and retaining walls, CONTINUED ON PAGE 19

New restaurants in Chester, townwide sale proposed

We’re now seeing some new activity in downtown Chestertown, indicating there’s a revitalization occurring in local commerce. Hemlock Ledge Restaurant & Cafe is now open on Main St. where Anywhere’s Restaurant was located. Fish and steak dinners with fresh vegetables are available Monday through Saturday. In addition, craft beers and homemade soups offer a distinctive touch. All foods are cooked to order. Recent offerings included pork medallions in an apple raisin glaze, fresh salmon with a teriyaki-ginger glaze. Soups range from chicken tortilla, creamy crab, summer squash, to beer cheese soup. In addition, there are always freshly baked desserts. The restaurant has a lively bar scene, we hear, with occasional live music. Hemlock Ledge is open for lunch at 11:30 a.m. and dinner at 4:30 p.m. They can be reached at 494-4452. The Bullhouse Restaurant is now under development in the old Ice Cream Parlor building on Main St. The owners, Greg and Sharon Taylor, have started renovations after receiving health department permits.

We hear the restaurant will be a Texas-style steakhouse, and hopefully it be opening sometime this fall. Such redevelopment in downtown Chester has been eagerly awaited for years. A complaint or two has circulated about activity on the Chester Municipal Center lawn during the weekly Chestertown Farmer ’s Market, whether it was a child playing around the veterans’ monuments or vendors pulling up vehicles on the center ’s lawn. The Farmers’ Market, however, has been a great boon to local commerce, drawing more than 500 people to downtown Chestertown the past three weeks. Most people believe it has been very positive develop-

August 18, 2012

ment in our community, and see the current revival in the commercial scene in part due to entrepreneurs witnessing the crowds that the Farmers’ Market has brought into town. There will be a classic car cruise-in and Car Hop Aug. 24 at the Panther Mountain Inn starting at 6 p.m. with classic cars and their owners gathering in the Panther Inn’s parking lot and a cruise through town to occur around dusk. Music for the event starts at 9 p.m. Community banners are now up on poles beside roadways, giving our North Warren hamlets a promotional boost. Thanks to John West for getting all the ban-

ners up. Ron Walker of Green Mansions Golf Course has offered to have a Golf Tournament at Green Mansions to benefit the Tri-Lakes Business Alliance. Planning for an autumn tournament is now underway, and volunteers are needed to help organize this event. It has been suggested that the communities of Chestertown, Pottersville and Brant Lake hold townwide garage sales to correspond with the Warrensburg’s World’s Largest Garage Sale event, occurring the weekend of Sept. 29 and 30 this year. The North Warren Chamber of Commerce is looking into promoting this event,

but again, volunteers are needed to assist with organizing this. People proposing this idea note that many thousands of people are drawn to the area that weekend, and it makes sense for North Warren communities to draw on those visitors as well. An Oktoberfest could also be incorporated into the event if there is enough interest among area citizens. Note that the next meeting of the Tri-Lakes Business Alliance is to be held Friday Aug. 17 at the Panther Mountain Inn in downtown Chestertown. People interested in boosting commerce in the North Warren area are welcome to attend.

Fundraiser at Railroads on Parade attracts many and trolleys go through their paces on the five spectacular displays, which include intricate sets of Manhattan, Weehawken N.J. and the Adirondacks. A new setting depicts Prince Edward Island, including tiny lobsters and a blue heron. Dunham gave personal tours of the displays in the museum that has been hailed as a vibrant new attraction in northern Warren County. The event included hors d’oeuvres catered by The Inn On Gore Mountain. A raffle was won by Noelle McCrum of Chestertown,

and the prize was a trip for two on the North Creek & Saratoga Railway plus dinner for two at Trapper ’s Restaurant at The Copperfield in North Creek. Barbara Dunham said she decided to host the fundraiser because the Chester Library is so important to the North Warren communities. “The library has made a positive difference in my life,� she said, observing that when she and Clarke opened their studio in Pottersville five years ago, there was only a bookmobile that occasionally traveled through town. She noted

that the Chester Library offers a wealth of programs and materials, as well as a dedicated computer room. Elisabeth Raine, Chair of the Library’s endowment fund, noted that gifts and donations can be sent to: Town of Chester Library Endowment Fund, P.O. Box 451, Chestertown, NY, 12817.

Officials of the Warrensburg Chamber of Commerce — the sponsor of the annual Garage Sale — are now gearing up for another blockbuster event — if the weather is reasonable, of course. This year some vendors have offered to donate a percentage of their sales to the Chamber to donate to charity. The Chamber board of directors has voted to give such donated money this year to the Floyd Bennett Bandstand restoration fund. The historic bandstand is deteriorating, and since it is a monument of national significance, a community effort is now under way to raise $275,000 for its restoration. The Chamber invites all private property owners and businesses who rent space for Garage Sale weekend to set out a donations jar or on their sale counter and label it "Floyd Bennett Bandstand Restoration Fund." Incidentally, local citizen Alan Hall donated $1,000 to the fund, challenging others in town to do the same — and Town Board member John Alexander matched Hall’s donation. Let's make

Adirondack Journal Editorial


Railway’s extension offers multiple benefits


n 2010, Warren County Supervisors — frustrated with the lack of success of their existing railroad — solicited proposals nationwide for ideas to develop it with an eye of boosting the county’s tourism. That November, a top executive of Iowa Pacific Holdings appeared before the board and told of an ambitious plan to boost passenger traffic through aggressive advertising, negotiating passenger connections to Albany and New York City, providing gracious dome cars, and making a massive investment into the railroad’s infrastructure. A most important element of their plan — development of rail freight service into the Adirondacks — was then portrayed as a mere footnote. And despite wranglings with environmentalists, who dragged the railway through a long federal approval process, Iowa Pacific was successful in gaining access to the rails on the 30-mile Tahawus Line. They plan to haul tailings from National Lead Industries’ Tahawus mine and garnet products from Barton Mines in North River to markets downstate. After a track upgrade project was completed, the 6-mile rail line between North Creek and North River officially opened Aug. 8 for freight service. At the ribbon-cutting event, Iowa Pacific President Ed Ellis noted that the railway sold 60,000 tickets during its first year, and he predicted that the passenger traffic would be increasing by 20 to 25 percent in its second full year of operation. Saratoga & North Creek Railway officials have said they plan to partner with other rail carriers to bring the area’s bounty of minerals to market, and freight could begin moving within a year. We at Denton Publications laud Iowa Pacific executives for their vision, local supervisors for their lobbying effort, and our state and federal representatives for listening and responding. The benefits of resuming rail freight traffic into the southern Adirondacks go far beyond the cleanup of mine tailings and the 20 jobs that would initially be created. First, the railway’s extension bolsters the finances of the enterprise, helping it to flourish, which in turn boosts both passenger and freight traffic. Already, the several hundred extra

tourists riding the train to North Creek per day in the summer has meant a dozen or so new enterprises opening up in town, representing dozens of new jobs. Next, the railway’s extension represents a step toward a sustainable future for residents of the southern Adirondacks, which can be accomplished by tapping the natural resources of the region — primarily wood products and minerals, both of which are becoming ever more valuable. Not only would harvesting and transporting these raw materials to market create hundreds of local jobs, but small industries would likely spring up to create products that are in demand and multiply the economic benefits. Thirdly, rehabilitation of the railroad infrastructure provides opportunity for a vital, efficient passenger service to be extended into the Adirondacks, while fuel prices continue to rise. It’s not just a matter of boosting the tourist trade, which is now a mainstay for the rural Adirondacks, and is likely to grow substantially — it’s far more. Some area citizens, and Iowa Pacific executives, have talked of how, with government support, the railway could become an affordable, convenient venue-of-choice for those commuting to work in Albany. Affordable train service would allow a wide range of workers to pursue their urban employment while their families are raised in the Adirondacks, with its outstanding quality of life. Such developments would revitalize area communities, devastated in recent decades by the exodus of citizens who have moved away to find good-paying jobs. The cultural richness of life in the Adirondacks could reach new heights, as well. We commend all those who have taken steps to facilitate the railway’s development, and we support further actions toward providing a sustainable economy; affordable, ecological public transportation; and judicious economic development.

We must make an impact Since last week’s column I’ve heard from many readers representing both parties who agree something must be done to get our elected officials and their respective parties to work together to address the issues facing the nation and spend less time focused on campaign elections and catering to vocal minority groups. If ever our voices are to be heard it’s during the next two-and-a-half months when they see so much at stake when running for office. We can do more than hope they are open to voter input as this is the time when they have a need from us. Their need is a vote and our need is to give them specific direction and then hold them accountable. If our country were a household and the two political parties represented the responsible parents who make the decisions, and the voters represent the children of the household who depend on their parents to provide food, finances and a safe shelter, then clearly we have a very dysfunctional family unit. These two can’t agree on anything. It’s either time for a divorce or it’s time for the children to convince their parents to clean up their act and be the responsible adults they claim to be. We have allowed these parental figures far too much control over this relationship by sitting back and it’s time to let them know their behavior is no longer acceptable. At a time when we must either tell our children to not expect a better life then we enjoyed or start confronting those who run this country…well that choice of who to speak with seems very clear. So what can we do in the short time we have left in this election season? I think we start by testing our ability to influence those decision makers running for office and the parties they represent. I believe we start by demanding that they stop these endless and stupid attack ads. Do we care that either side sees the other side as useless, selfish, drunken, lying, goodfor-nothing bums, whores, killers or whatever else their sadistic ad people can conjure up? If we are ever going to influence a change we must demand that they tell us why they are qualified for the job and exactly what they plan to do, when they plan to do it and most importantly, how they will get the other side to go along with their plan, for without this component

nothing will happen and we expect to see results. If they are unable to meet this stanDan Alexander dard, why in hell Thoughts from would we want to Behind the Pressline put them in charge and waste our time and money? If we, as the electorate, can’t make something as basic as this request happen during this highly charged, contested season, then we, as members of this nation, are really nothing more than pawns and we will never really have any say in the direction or tone of this government. If those running for office can focus on giving us a clear choice between two competing ideas or plans rather than spending all of their — make that our — money and efforts designing marketing plans to tear down the other side they have only proven they are good at destroying people and ideas with lies and innuendo, while planting doubt, lack of trust and further dysfunction…and what kind of choice is that? The reality is they either don’t think we are smart enough to understand anything more than empty promises, or they know the slim minority of those who will ultimately decide the election are simple minded enough to believe their lies. We can no longer allow that small minority to set the agenda for our nation. Either way, if we don’t demand higher standards from them we will continue to get more of what we’ve been getting. Additionally, these new Super PACS that the candidates (wink-wink) have no control over are just another example of the disrespect they have for the American electorate. I believe the time has come to demand that they be accountable or it’s time for the “divorce.” What exactly do I mean by divorce? In any household where the adults are not responsible enough to provide the basic necessities, someone must step in and put things in order, be it a grandparent, family member or some other responsible adult. If the parties can’t put forward candidates with ideas and plans to move the nation forward then CONTINUED ON PAGE 7

•100 Years Ago – Aug. 1912• Lady refuses food, expires After a fast of 60 days, during which not a particle of food and only a small amount of water passed her lips, Mrs. Samuel B. Moses, 63, died the night of July 29, 1912 at 12:15 p.m. at her home on Alden Avenue where she lived quietly for many years with her husband, Capt. Samuel B. Moses, who survived her. The couple had two children in the early years of their married life, but they died in infancy. Paulina Moses, born April 20, 1849, was the daughter of the late Asahel Bennett and the sister of Alice Gates who survives her. The deceased had been an invalid for a number of years and she had been attended by Dr. Griffin. For several days in the latter part of May, Mrs. Moses abstained from food but broke her fast on May 30, 1912. Her stomach refused to perform its functions and rebelled against the food. Since that day she had persistently refused to take nourishment in any form. In spite of this, she retained her strength in a remarkable degree. During the early part of her abstinence she walked each day to her husband’s little shop near the house where she sat and watched him at his work. Later when she could no longer travel the short distance on her own, she insisted on being carried each day to her accustomed seat in the shop. This was kept up until three days before her death. Capt. Moses did everything in his power to get her to eat but his efforts were in vain. There were suspicions that Paulina Moses, always eccentric, was mentally deranged. She was a spotless housekeeper before her illness, “as neat as wax,” and almost never ventured beyond the bounds of her street. Paulina Moses is buried in the Warrensburgh Cemetery. (Note: The Moses home is on the east corner of River St. and Alden Avenue. Years later, the late Jim and Florence Gallup

lived there. Florence worked for several years in the Richards Library. Their son lives in the house today. Capt. Moses was a talented and unusual man with an outrageous sense of humor, who was famous for his wild and complex practical jokes. He was in charge of Warrensburgh parades and went to unheard of lengths to make them memorable. Because he had no live wild animals for his parades, he made his own reproductions in his workshop. Samuel Moses, 71, died Nov. 25, 1915 and lies beside his wife in the Warrensburgh Cemetery.)

Handsome, historic walking cane Dr. Charles B. Cunningham of Warrensburgh has recently become the owner of a handsome cane of historic value, presented to him by the executors of the estate of his late uncle, Mr. Cunningham of Plattsburgh. The cane is made of wood which was once a part of the hull of the Royal Savage, a British vessel that sank in Lake Champlain during the War of 1812. Several times attempts have been made to raise the vessel and it was on one of these occasions that a diver brought to the surface a piece of the hull from which the cane was made. The stick is of some dark wood resembling ebony. It is handsomely polished and is surmounted by a beautifully engraved gold head bearing an appropriate inscription. Mr. Cunningham was at that time prominent in city affairs and the cane was presented to him by the citizens of Plattsburgh as a testimonial of their esteem. Dr. Cunningham has another cane he prizes highly, a bamboo stick given to him in 1881 by his buddies at Dartmouth College. Almost the entire surface is covered with the names or nicknames of the givers, cut in with a pen knife. Many of these classmates have, of course, long since gone to their eternal home and their signatures now form their epitaphs.

Girl leaves family, relatives worry News has been received by local relatives that the 14-year-old daughter of Henry Lee, of Granville, who disappeared from her home the evening of May 25, 1912, has just been found in West Pawlet, Vt. She was last seen in a wagon with a strange man who took her away with him. She says she does not wish to return home. In other news, a traveling Italian vagrant came to the home of Joshua Reynolds in East Thurman the other day and refused to leave when told to do so. Neighbors were called to help get him to go away. Arthur W. Morehouse, formerly of Lake George, whose wife died this spring leaving him with four young children, and who has been staying for some time at Bakers Mills, came to Warrensburgh recently to remain for a stay at the home of Dudley Monroe.

Old Maids’ show opens The one-act comedy, “The Spinsters’ Convention,” under the auspices of the Warrensburgh Presbyterian Ladies’ Aid Society was presented July 26, 1912 at Music Hall. The players were arrayed in wondrous comical costumes and were cleverly made up to look as spinsters are supposed to look, but seldom do. Mrs. Charles F. Burhans played Josephine Jane Greene with much dignity. Their antics provoked frequent and hearty laughter. The hall was completely filled and the door receipts were about $110, most of which was profit. (Note: the Warrensburg Music Hall was next door north of today’s Rite Aid pharmacy.

Two steamers in trouble The new steamer Horicon, carrying about 700 passengers on a moonlight excursion on Lake George under the auspices of the Knights of Columbus, grazed a rock in the narrows and barely escaped a serious accident. As it was, one of the paddle wheels was considerably damaged, part of the wheel box

was carried away and the hull was scraped. The boat was enabled, however, to reach Lake George Village under its own steam. The next day it was sent to the Baldwin yard and will be out of commission for 10 days. The night of Aug. 10, 1912, the steamer Sagamore, with about 200 passengers aboard, ran on a sand bar opposite Hague village and was stranded for 36 hours. Word was sent to Lake George Village, and the steamer Horicon, which was docked there, was rushed to the scene with all possible speed. She pulled and tugged on the big boat for several hours to no avail, having moved the steamer only about three feet after breaking all her hawsers and anchor chains. She returned to Lake George and the next day she again took up the task with the result that the boat was freed from the sand. The Sagamore had no damages except a badly scraped hull and was able to resume her daily trips.

Children in need The New York State Charities Aid Association has placed an ad in local newspapers carrying on its work in placing homeless children, under 14 years of age, in homes where they will be received as members of the family. Over 40,000 children had to be placed in military-type institutions last year in the state. Young lives that start in an orphanage are forced to leave at 14 or 16 years of age and venture out into the world and fend for themselves with no one to turn to.

Local news It’s August now and summer is on its last legs. The weather is in fact autumn-like in its coolness and it seems like fall already. As of Aug. 5, 1912, there were 700 motorboats counted on Lake George. A band of gypsies, who have been camping in Wevertown, broke camp Aug. 12, 1912 and moved on. Will Smith went to Lake George July 30, 1912 with a large supply of peanuts and ice cream cones which he sold to the people there who came to see the circus. Contact Jean Hadden at or 623-2210.

Letters to the Editor Chester Town hall lawn should be reserved for veterans’ memorial To the Adirondack Journal: I have a suggestion for the organizers of the Chestertown Farmers’ Market. Wouldn’t it be better to hold the weekly Farmers‘ Market at the Chestertown’s Dynamite Hill Recreation area where the activity won’t create a traffic hazard? Also, market vendors’ vehicles are pulling onto the lawn of the Chester Municipal Center, and killing the new grass in front of the new Chester Veterans’ Memorial Plaza, which is being desecrated by the market! The front of the town hall is for the memory of the veterans, not junk sales and farmers’ markets. George Phillips Warrensburg

Accommodate the schoolhouse volunteers, find another site for Adirondack day camp To the Adirondack Journal: As a resident of the hamlet of Adirondack in the town of Horicon, I was at the meeting described in the July 28 Adirondack Journal, listening to the discussion of the use of the Adirondack Schoolhouse. I’d like to correct one incorrect statement — the enterprise known as Adirondack Arts & Science Day Camp is NOT paying rent for the use of the schoolhouse during the five-week tenure, according to a Town Board member and schoolhouse representative Jane Smith. I have no affiliation with either the schoolhouse, its activities or supporters, nor the Day Camp and its owners. At the meeting, a gentleman stated that the building would not be available for anyone’s use if these hardworking folks in Adirondack hadn’t contributed and volunteered their time, manual labors and personal donations to accomplish the improvements to this old building — not to mention raising the additional funds necessary to continue to complete upgrades to the buildings. They have earned the right that their needs to use the building should be a priority, and their opinions should be considered. To me, there is no disagreement that the five-week Day Camp program offered by the LaFountains to our children and grandkids is a wonderful opportunity and everyone would like the program to continue, specifically in Adirondack. I am Project Coordinator for the Horicon Historical Society’s 1881 Adirondack Museum. In that capacity for the past year, I’ve spent many, many back-breaking volunteer hours working on the restoration of this church into a museum — as well as fundraising to convert a local historic building that is sitting empty and deteriorating, turning it into a beautiful, useable, restored building. It is an asset in terms of education, tourism and entertainment that the public can utilize — as well as providing a future legacy to our children. Considering this, I can empathize with the schoolhouse folks at that meeting that they felt like they had no input regarding the use of the schoolhouse, and I understand their

feelings of exclusion. At the same time, I feel our youth and those who contribute to their growth is a vital concern and I am happy to know I live in a community willing to contribute to that. However, as a parent and grandparent, I would ask myself some questions about this building and whether I wanted my child there under those circumstances and what I can do to change what I am uncomfortable about. As a resident, I would like to see this discussion resolved so all concerned within our community feel we have come to a workable solution by June 2013. Also, I’d would like to know if there is lead in the paint of this old building or asbestos in the walls. I also thought we the people of Horicon had hired a “beautification employee” — so why are our children picking up dirty trash without gloves and being exposed to invasive species of plants? Also, there is presently no hot water at the schoolhouse. I also would be concerned about the long walk on the busy roads of Adirondack going to the beach. Certainly, the long walk is good for the children, but not on the narrow Adirondack hamlet roads. I would also ask what the requirements are to operate a day care center or camp. I believe this question was asked and Mr. LaFountain said their operation was an “Enrichment Program,” thereby bypassing applicable state requirements. My thoughts are that we need to come together as a community with the LaFountains to promote this opportunity and find a suitable location within Horicon for the day camp purpose. Perhaps, when a request affecting a large group comes before the Town Board, a second meeting for all involved could be held before a final commitment is made. Respectfully, Edna Trumble

Citizens need to focus on God’s Word To the Adirondack Journal: I have read several editorials lately by Adirondack Journal Publisher Dan Alexander that state he would like to see more cooperation between the nation’s political leaders. I am sure there are many who would applaud the same actions. However, I pause to reflect on both history and God’s Word. A century ago, President Garfield said, “Now, more than ever before, the people are responsible for the character of their Congress. If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt it is because people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislator — It will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not find us a great nation — it will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces.” In other words, the people are apathetic or lazy or do not hold any higher values than those we elect. Daniel Wester said, “I apprehend no danger to our country from a foreign foe — our destruction, should it come at all, will be from another quarter — from the inattention of

the people to the concerns of their government; from their carelessness and negligence.” America is immoral because America has rejected God just as his chosen people did. We have thrown God out of our education system and now anything other than God is promised. His Word tells of the results of our choices. It warns of our demise and his judgement. We are seeing the beginnings of it now world wide in floods, fires, famine, drought and wars, but we don’t recognize them because of lack of knowledge of his Word. Study the Bible and look to the sky for Christ’s return! Carl Thomas Stony Creek

Alexander from page 6 they should be dismantled and replaced. That will only happen if members of those parties step forward and make it known they have the will and power to do so by resigning from the party, refusing to vote or by getting involved, taking greater control and demanding true change. If the party has no base to play to it may force them to greater accountability. Send this column with your endorsement or draft a letter telling your party what you expect; Democrats to and Republicans to Tell them you’ve heard and seen enough. Tell them you demand they quit the attack ads and start putting forth a substantial message on why their candidates are qualified and exactly what they plan to do to put our nation back on track for the sake of future generations. Share the message with friends and family through personal contact, phone, mail, email or social media. Let your voices and wishes be heard with every candidate and party member you come in contact with. Make your presence felt at candidate nights and other political and social functions. If enough of us move to the middle before the election it just might make them nervous and get their attention. Our nation requires a serious effort and they better prove they are up to the task. At the recent Olympic Games in London our US Team proved if you work hard and set demanding goals you can be successful. Our political leaders need to elevate their game and if they won’t we must be willing to force a change. Our Olympic team refused to accept mediocrity, repeatedly exceeded previously set records, can we allow our country and our children to accept the fact that our best days are now behind us? It’s a very sad day if we do and shame on us for allowing it to happen during our watch. It will take hard work, sacrifice and every single person to turn around this dismal condition but it can be done if we have the resolve and desire to make good choices this fall. We all must do our part and it must start today. Dan Alexander is publisher and CEO of Denton Publications. He may be reached at

Mountain music

Golf tourney benefit

The Warren County Ramblers band, featuring Hoddy Ovitt, returns to Thurman playing bluegrass and traditional mountain music in a free outdoor concert Monday Aug. 20 in Veterans’ Memorial Field behind the town hall in Athol . They are a favorite in our region and their last concert in Thurman was very well attended. This group showcases the talents of Hoddy on guitar and six-string banjo; Johnny Mosher with lead vocals, mandolin, and guitar; Kenny Myers picking bass and Pete Bolster, guitar. Light refreshments are available. The concert series is presented by the Town of Thurman using Warren County occupancy tax money. The series continues on Mondays through August. At last week’s Concert in the Park, the band Aged in the Hills was featured, and they gave a spectacular performance. Darcy Schacher has a pitch-perfect voice — she reminded me of a contemporary Karen Carpenter, and her parents Cherry and George play wonderfully. Darcy leaves for college soon, and her parents speculate she will be extremely successful in whatever field of study or career she chooses to pursue — and I must agree.

ALBANY — Two bills sponsored by Senator Betty Little were signed into law by Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Aug. 1. The first allows municipalities and school districts in New York to jointly contract for goods and services with any other federal, state or local government agency. This cooperative purchasing, also known as piggybacking, allows municipalities and schools to secure products or services at a lower cost by joining a contract for a vendor that was used by another government agency. “This saves money and time, and its timing is obviously critical given the financial pressure local governments and schools are under,” Little said in a prepared statement. Various municipal associations advocatThank you for the hard work all of you have accomplished to bring our roadways back to good condition. Wini Martin and Perky Granger wish to remind all individuals, groups and businesses that plans are underway for the Thurman Fall Farm Tour, to be held Saturday Oct. 6 and Sunday, Oct. 7. Anyone who wishes to be involved, or is seeking information may call Wini at 623-9595 or email her at: m.

ed for the measure. The second law benefits micro-hydroelectric generation enterprises by expanding remote net metering for benefits for such entrepreneurs. The new law will allow farm operations, customers with land in agricultural production, or non-residential customers to apply credit received for power delivered to the electric grid to any of the customer's meters rather than only to a single, directly connected meter as long as the meters are located on the customers property within the same utility territory. “This provides parity for micro-hydro generators, encouraging investment in this technology which is good for business and the environment,” Little said. The New York Farm Bureau and Alliance for Clean Energy New York supported the measure. Both laws are effective immediately.

Bicentennial to feature our roots Preparations are under way for the Warren County Bicentennial in 2013 and Thurman is planning on featuring an event titled ‘Old Home Days.’ Not only will local citizens be planting black-eyed susans on their properties, but events showcasing our history are to be held both at the Town Hall and the Thurman Rail Station. Thurman was settled by John Thurman; hence the John Thurman Historical Society began in the 1960s. Originally the town was called Athol by early settlers, but when Warren County was established in 1813, much of the town was lost to the new town of Warrensburgh and the remain-

The Historical Society of the Town of Chester will host a presentation of Adirondack readings by The Our Town Theatre Group “Penny Readers” on August 22nd at 7 o’clock at the Town of Chester Municipal Center auditorium, which is located at 6307 State Route 9 in Chestertown- across the street from the Grand Union. The Our Town Theatre Group (OTTG) in 2010 formed “The Penny Readers” to bring poetry and stories more directly to the public. They have appeared often in our area, and their performances are for free! They don’t charge even a penny! Come and enjoy the first time reading of the tender, complex poems of Jeanne Robert Foster. Her poetry speaks directly about the people she knew, the life and places she loved as a young woman growing up in the Adirondacks of the 1800’s. Reading Foster’s poetry will be Bob Foley of Minerva, Brenda Foley of Minerva, Wendy Joy Hayes of Brant Lake, Jim Kries of Indian Lake, and Dennis Wilson of Chestertown. Together they will encompass the area as Foster herself did as she lived in many places in the southern Adirondacks when she was young, including Chestertown, N.Y. Enjoy this glimpse of the past. The third program of the season will be David Pitkin, a popular area presenter. He will be doing a program on Sept 26th about ghosts - in the Carol Theatre in town. This building has been authenticated as having spirits. So when you come, you may see folks you haven’t seen IN YEARS!! October 24th will be the final program for the season when George Wertime will monitor a program focusing on a tape of J. Phillip Sullivan talking about Chestertown when he was growing up here. The museum is located on the 2nd Floor of the Municipal Center – right across the hall from the Library. Come in and see what our forefathers used in their everyday lives. Also, visit the Sumy Gallery. Sumy chronicled life in the area for decades!! All programs are at 7PM in the Town’s Municipal Center across from the Grand Union (except September’s). Your presence is welcome, and all programs are free and open to the public.

Doheny tours Oscar’s Smoke House By Thom Randall WARRENSBURG — Dozens of customers crowding Oscar ’s Smoke House Friday Aug. 10 saw an unfamiliar sight while they were buying the landmark business’s renowned smoked meats — a man wearing a tie and business slacks behind the counter. It was Matt Doheny, Republican candidate for the new 21st Congressional District. Doheny was at the smokehouse Friday afternoon to take a tour of the operation and hear the concerns of Oscar ’s owner Jerry Quintal — as part of Doheny’s “50 Businesses in 50 Days” tour. Moving from one processing room to another, Doheny (R-Watertown) heard about how the three-generation business had achieved regional acclaim and national prominence. Loyal employees prepare top-quality meats according to exclusive family recipes, Quintal explained. The result is an Adirondack business that’s flourishing and growing, in an era and regional economy that has formidable challenges, Doheny noted. During the 45-minute tour, Doheny asked detailed questions about Oscar ’s operation, including processing techniques and equipment, as well as marketing and governmental regulations. Emerging from the enterprise’s processing areas, Doheny said he was impressed. “Oscar ’s has top-flight products, loyal customers and great advertising — and unmatched marketing with Rachael Ray as a good customer,” Doheny said. He added he was particularly moved by how Quintal kept his employees on the pay-

roll when the business was stricken from a devastating fire burned Oscar ’s to the ground in 2009 — and it was rebuilt from the ground up. “I came here to learn about the challenges Adirondack businesses face, and to understand Jerry’s concerns — so I can speak in Washington for him and other entrepreneurs in the North Country,” Doheny said. Doheny said that if elected, among his top priorities will be helping existing businesses grow and creating a business-friendly climate that will spawn new jobs. After hearing that Oscar ’s submits reports regularly to a half-dozen state and federal agencies, Doheny noted that streamlining government regulations is one of his primary objectives. Doheny’s tour this week included the Essex County Fair and Normandy Beach Resort, both in Westport, as well as Barton Mines in Johnsburg. Doheny’s proposed tourism and business oriented initiatives include reducing the state gas tax, maintaining the current minimum wage, and forming a broad-based tourism council that would boost coordination among various existing tourism agencies and organizations. In the new 21st Congressional District, Doheny is running against U.S. Rep. Bill Owens (D-Plattsburgh), and Green Party candidate Donald Hassig. After Doheny left Oscar ’s Friday to tour Hillman Trucking and Fort Edward Express of South Glens Falls, Quintal said he appreciated the candidate’s visit. “It was great that Matt took the time to tour our enterprise,” Quintal said. “He was really interested and curious about the details of our business.”

DOH cites town for youth program ‘violations’ By Thom Randall

LAKE GEORGE — The youth summer recreation program run by the Lake George Youth Commission was inspected Aug. 2 by the state Health Department and was cited for five violations, but town officials are questioning the charges. Town Supervisor Dennis Dickinson reported Monday Aug. 13 that the Health Department has classified the program — on the basis that it has at least five youngsters attending — as a “Children’s Camp,” which requires having a Medical Director on staff as well as an Aquatics Director to oversee the swimming sessions the program offers. The inspection report said that compliance and issuance of a Children’s Camp permit was mandatory for the program to continue operations. Town Board member Vinnie Crocitto said Monday that the town’s summer recreation program has been operated since at least the early 1970s without any serious incident, and is well staffed with counselors. Dickinson said this was the first time in 45 years the Health Department has conducted an inspection, so he was taken aback by the alleged violations. Crocitto said the Health Department’s classification of the program as a Children’s Camp might curtail swimming if not shut down the program, if left unchallenged. “We’re concerned this could curtail our program,” Crocitto said. The inspection report also said that a complete safety plan

was lacking. Besides having an qualified medical director on staff, the program must include obtaining and maintaining immunization and medical records on children attending, as well as keeping a medical log and providing for special medical and dietary needs. In addition, the program didn’t have a “buddy board” in use, nor employ a buddy system with safety practice routines performed, Dickinson said. The program is operated five days per week for six weeks during mid-summer. Based at the Lake George Central School bus garage, children play tennis, dodgeball and various ball games on adjacent recreation fields as well as pingpong in the garage, Crocitto said. Dickinson said the town was notified that the bus garage didn’t meet state requirements. He said the inspectors said it must have a ramp for access by “campers” with mobility challenges, and needed handicapped rest rooms to be constructed. The Commission was also cited for oil stains on the bus garage floor, he said. Dickinson questioned whether an Aquatics Director really needed to be hired. He noted that the swimming, which is offered from noon to 3 p.m. at Shepard Park Beach nearby, is conducted under the auspices of the lifeguards employed by the Village. Dickinson said Monday that he’s setting up a meeting between health department representatives, board members and various community members to see if the “Children’s Camp” classification could be changed, and reach an agreement with state officials to resolve the other issues.

Warren County leaders find catharsis in croquet By Paul Gilchrist WARRENSBURG — Six county supervisors took a short respite from the pressures of public policy and competed in a round of croquet at the Warren County Rural Heritage Festival held Saturday Aug. 11 on the county fairgrounds. Dubbed the “Supervisors Challenge,” the politicians were recruited by Warrensburgh Historical Society Croquetmaster Delbert Chambers to boost countywide involvement in the festival. Chambers was on the field to referee and resolve any rules dispute, which isn’t rare among politicians, but his judiciary talents weren't put to use. The Supervisors Challenge didn’t have any of the contentious aspects of politics, observers noted, and the players each had a fair-sized entourage offering support from the sidelines. The six players were a less than a third of the 20 county supervisors, so they didn’t represent a quorum, which would have squelched any talk about official business.

Dine Out

Art History program on Friday

The croquet contest was intended to boost the sport, introducing 21stcentury citizens people to the game that was very popular at the turn of the 20th century. It remained quite popular into the 1960s, then receded, but has recently experienced a resurgence, despite the advent of extreme sports. In the 1890s, croquet could be considered somewhat extreme, in that young ladies would be watched carefully by their chaperones to make sure they did not expose an ankle when playing in the company of young men. No chaperones were visible at the 2012 Festival, however. Participating in the contest were county supervisors Kevin Geraghty of Warrensburg, Evelyn Wood of Thurman, Frank Thomas of Stony Creek, Gene Merlino of Lake Luzerne, Ron Vanselow of Johnsburg, and David Strainer of Queensbury. With savvy tactics and accurate shots, Merlino won. After the game, he described the competition as “fierce.” “Host supervisor Kevin Geraghty really wanted to win, but I’m a person that doesn't like to come in second,” he said.

Families Must Make Safety a Priority While Hiking “Excellent Health Care Close To Home” for services and employment

Lake Placid • Saranac Lake Mercy Living Center • Uihlein Living Center

Hiking boots? Check. Water? Check. Safety guidelines? A must! Fall is a great time for the family to get out and go for a hike, the cooler temperatures and beautiful changing foliage beckons. While the preparations for a family hiking trip usually include a review of the necessary gear, parents should also review safety guidelines with their children, paying special attention to potential hazards specific to camping, hiking, outdoor recreation, and falls.

• Dress children in layers of clothing to help prevent heat-related illness and hypothermia. A child’s body temperature changes faster than an adult’s.

“Going camping or hiking can be wonderful activities for parents to do with their children, but it is essential to remember key safety guidelines as you’ll be leaving the daily environment your kids are used to,” says Kerry Haley, Safe Kids Adirondack co-coordinator. “A campfire is a serious responsibility because it’s the only situation where a family is purposely starting a fire outdoors and a long way from a pressurized water supply or the nearest fire engine.”

• Bring plenty of drinking water or sports drinks and high-energy snacks like the Caramel, Peanut Butter, Apple snack in the Kidsville Kitchen Recipe.

Keep these guidelines in mind while camping and hiking:

• Apply sunscreen rated SPF 15 or higher to your child’s exposed skin 15 to 30 minutes before going out, and reapply frequently. It is possible to get a sunburn in the Fall even in cloudy conditions.

• Keep matches and lighters out of the reach of children. • Always actively supervise children near a campfire or portable stove. Follow posted rules about campfires, and do not light fires in windy or excessively dry conditions.

Hey Kids, Come visit me, Mo the Monkey at Mo’s Pub & Grill

• Keep a bucket of water and a shovel near the fire at all times, and extinguish the fire completely before going to sleep or leaving the site. • Keep first aid supplies and emergency phone numbers handy, and know where the nearest phone is located. Cell phones might not work in remote areas.

• Let friends and relatives know where you are going and when you are coming home. • Never let children hike alone.

• Do not push kids to go on a longer or more strenuous hike than they can handle. Exhausted children are more likely to fall, wander off or otherwise get injured.

• Kids should wear hiking boots and clothing that offers protection from scrapes, bites and poisonous plants. Following the manufacturer’s instructions, apply insect repellent to a child’s clothing and exposed skin.

paid taxes. This proposed new measure calls for taking 50 percent of proceeds in excess of $100,00 from the 2012 tax sale to set up an environmental testing fund that will help determine the appropriate course for particular plots of land. In subsequent years, the percentage of proceeds of the tax sale to go towards the fund would be 25 percent. The initiative, promoted this week by county Treasurer Mike Swan, calls for the county to take temporary title — a relatively new provision under state law to help clean up brownfields — while environmental testing is performed. Depending on the test results, the county would then put the property up for public sale, or seek to have the state spearhead an environmental cleanup, Swan said. “No longer will we have properties just sitting out there,” Swan said to the supervisors at the committee meeting. Warren county now has three properties in limbo that are accruing ever-

By Thom Randall QUEENSBURY — Warren County leaders took an initial step Aug. 8 toward getting more abandoned properties back on the tax rolls. The county Finance Committee voted unanimously to set up a fund to provide for environmental testing of properties the county acquires through foreclosure proceedings to recoup unpaid property taxes. The fund is to be bankrolled with a portion of the proceeds from each annual tax sale. Over the past few decades, the county has not taken title to properties they acquire if there is any question of whether the property is contaminated with hazardous substances that might prompt authorities to mandate an expensive cleanup. Steering away from acquiring such properties has left the title of the properties in limbo, stalled potential site cleanup, and boosted the amount of un-

higher balances of unpaid taxes. One is the old gas station on state Rte. 8 in the hamlet of Johnsburg. Authorities have said that underground fuel tanks are present on the half-acre plot. With the property title in limbo, the plot’s owner hasn't paid taxes on it since 1989, Swan said. Another brownfield property now off the tax rolls is the former Hague town dump, which was sold in 1970 to an individual. The third is the site of a former machine shop and foundry next to the C.R. Bard plant off Bay Road in Queensbury. Supervisors praised the initiative, which is subject to approval by the full county Board of Supervisors at their meeting Friday Aug. 17. “This is a terrific proposal,” Bolton Supervisor Ron Conover said. Chester Supervisor Fred Monroe agreed. “Now, liens get so big on these distressed properties that the county never gets their money back — this measure will address that problem.”

Everything the Bass fisherman thinks he needs:

Displaced, but still tied to the land


n the past few weeks, I’ve been involved in a number of discussions regarding the recent state purchase of lands from the Adirondack Nature Conservancy. The purchase includes several large parcels of timberlands, and numerous hunting and fishing clubs that leased these lands. I know what it is like to lose a lease. I am reminded of the sentiment every time I return to Lows Lake and the Bog River Flow. As a young man, I traveled into the region frequently as a guest of the Grasse Pond Hunting and Fishing Club. After the state purchased the land, I continued to return, and although the old camp was gone, I still knew the land far better than most visitors. I knew where the springholes were, and where big brook trout could be found during the fall, or directly after ice out. Similarly, the former leaseholders of lands on the Bog River Flow, the vast Whitney Park or in nearby Robinwood had a unique knowledge of their own special areas. They knew where the deer were, and how to set up a drive and where to set out the watcher. Even after public access was eventually granted to these former private lands, no one knew the area as well as former lease holders and they returned often to take advantage of that knowledge. While many no longer had their own private camp, they still had an attachment to the land, and there was no cost for a lease. While there is still bitterness over the state purchases even after decades have passed, I now realize how selfish we were to think we owned the land. In reality, we only rented it for a short time. These lands will remain far beyond our brief stay on this earth, and fortunately, a large portion of them will now remain much as they were when they first were found, and likely far into the future. In a similar fashion, members of the many hunting, fishing and sportsmens clubs that leased lands on the Essex Chain of Lake, the Boreas Ponds, the Hudson River and other properties in southern Essex County will likely maintain a positive relationship with their former haunts. Even though The Nature Conservancy sold the lands to New York State, these former club members will still have the upper hand when it comes to knowing the lay of the land. Undoubtedly, in some cases there are third and possibly even fourth generations of former leaseholders, who love these lands as if they were their own. And there is no doubt they have treated them accordingly. There is and likely always will be, a conundrum of opinion over the development, or protection of wild lands, especially in rural areas. While the protection of park land in the middle of New York City is of obvious benefit to local residents, it is not such a clear chose in rural areas, such as the Adirondacks and Catskills, where park lands are much more prevalent. In the Northeast, the remaining wild lands feature a mix of both state and federally protected parkland, as well as managed timberlands and large private estates and other inholdings. Although large tracts of managed timberlands are located adjacent to designated wilderness lands, in both the Adirondacks and elsewhere, land designation is often an arbitrary label. Over the years, I’ve traveled through the wilderness and encountered crowds that resembled Times Square on New Years eve. Conversely, I’ve driven in motor vehicles through vast tracts of seemingly untracked territory on private lands that have been in the hands of the same families since the 1800’s. One particularly massive Adirondack property has been in private hands since 1848, and it remains as wild, or wilder today than it was when it was originally purchased. Developed lands are quite easy to find throughout the Northeast, however truly wild lands are almost impossible to find. Although the term ‘wilderness’ is often tossed around, there are many who would argue that there is no true wilderness left in the East. It is an argument that has some teeth, despite a few vast parcels. When wild lands are taken out of production, there will almost always be a loss of industry, raw materials and a variety of jobs associated with woodlands and extractive industries. Many of these positions have become family heirlooms that were handed down from father to son and beyond. There is an ongoing debate over the use of wild lands, and the best, and most productive economic benefit. Wilderness designation ensures the availability of other resources and values, such as scenic beauty, peace and quiet, and opportunities for solitude into the indefinite future. Those values, and their long-term protection, may attract or retain residents, vacationers and the businesses that serve them. Homes in close proximity to public recreational trails have a resale value that average about 20-25 percent higher than comparable properties that are not located close to a trail. Protected lands that provide public recreational opportunities increase the quality of life for local residents, as well as visitors. These lands increasingly provide opportunities for a sustainable future, and healthy lifestyles. Gold and silver are considered valuable because they are rare minerals. If the same vein of thought, it is obvious that wild lands are a similarly, rare commodity. Similar to veins of gold or silver, the likelihood of discovering a new vein of to-

tally wild lands is pretty slim, so it is wise to bank and protect what we currently have. Undeveloped land is a finite property, which continues to become increasingly rare especially in modern times. As a result, it becomes obvious that we must protect the limited supplies we already have, and continue our efforts to uncover more. Extraction industries last only as long as the resource is available. When all of the materials are gone, so are the jobs. However, wild lands not only retain their original value, their value will continue to increase in value as time goes on. Rivers and streams, lakes and ponds, mountains and valleys are a renewable resource, and the protection of wild lands is an investment in our future. I recognize that such a statement is considered blasphemy to many proponents of property rights, yet I have come to understand the reality of our legacy. If we don’t take care of our wild lands and promote efforts to secure more, who will. For more than two centuries, Americans have consumed and tamed the land at an alarming pace. It has been estimated that every day, nearly nine square miles of rural land are lost to development. In the United States, we gobble up land at an alarming rate, and we often neglect the little bits of land that we do manage to protect. If you don’t believe it, please experience if you will, the raging traffic pouring into and out of the Boston area, New York City or Washington DC on any given day. Or spend a few hours experiencing what it is like to be stuck in traffic on the Beltway on a hot Sunday afternoon. In the Adirondacks, many residents are blind to such realities. We complain when we are stuck in a slow moving line of cars, or behind a snowplow that is moving at a snail’s speed. But all that is required to grasp the reality of the situation is to take a drive beyond the borders of this wild bubble of parkland we call home. We are spoiled, and myopic to believe that protected lands are of less value than developed lands. These same lands are often at our very doorstep. The vast majority of these lands are utilized very lightly, and primarily just during the summer months. I like the fact that I can walk out my back door, and travel nearly 30 miles or more in any direction from my home. And since state park lands are free and open to the public, local residents have an opportunity to utilize them much more often than visitors, and in fact, we do. One of the most recent studies conducted to gauge the number of Forest Preserve users, reveals that local residents constitute the majority of users. Not only are local residents in the majority, we also utilize state lands more frequently than visitors from out of the area. While some still believe there are just too many restrictions governing the use of land in the Adirondack Park, there are some who believe the restrictions are not tough enough. With a free camping permit, I can legally establish a campsite on most state lands for up to two weeks in one location. If I set up a camp on Sept. 1, and renew the permit two weeks later to be used as a hunting camp, I can maintain the campsite for the duration of the big game hunting season, which runs into the first week of December. That’s roughly four months of camping on state land, and it is all rent free. Try to see how that goes over in Central Park.


here was a time years ago when fishing was simple. I’d grab a rod and reel and jump in the wooden homemade jonboat with my granddad, crank the 3 hp Johnson outboard and putter to our favorite fishing hole. We would drown a couple dozen minnows catching white bass, crappie or largemouth bass until dark and then putter back home. Life was good. Not today. Now it’s hook up By Howard Hammonds the 21-foot Ranger bass boat and trailer with the gas guzzling 250 horsepower Evinrude ETech motor, drop half a house payment at the gas pump filling it all up, pull it to some far away lake, buzz around at a casual 50-plus mph, all the time watching the screen of a state of the art Lowrance GPS with depth locator, 3-D imaging, contoured Navionics maps showing rock piles, ledges and points, looking for that magic fishing spot, hoping it holds the next 20-pound stringer of bass to load into a 25-gallon live well with fill pumps, automatic recirculating pumps, oxygen tank, and special aeration systems to keep the oxygen content at as high as possible. If it’s going to be a long day we can add ice and Rejuvenade that by the manufacture’s claim revitalizes our catch. I have a trolling motor with intuitibe programing that will follow a contoured depth break with the simple push of a button on the remote on my right wrist, so not a single one of those little green fish will get away. You won’t find the old paper bag with a baloney sandwich and coke on this boat. What you will find is 20 gallon built-in insulted cooler large enough to hold three days of electrolyte drinks, energy bars and various flavored waters along with enough baloney, mustard and gluten-free bread to feed myself and half of Wadhams. Of course, the old Mitchell 300 spinning reel taped to my 6-foot fiberglass rod has since been replaced by at least a dozen high modulus graphic rods with ceramic eyes matched with 10 ball bearing bait caster reels and another 6 or so 7-foot medium action spinning rods with high speed 8 ball bearing spinning reels. All cozily sit in a rod locker on board with fitted holders to protect the very expensive and sensitive cargo. Each rod has its own function: there are topwater rods, frog sticks, spinner-bait rods, worm rods I and II, flipping sticks and drop shot rods and on and on. If there is a type of lure there is a special type of rod. Then, there are several different types of fishing line from monofilament to Copolymer, to Braid to Fluorocarbon all in combinations of line strength from 8-pound for finesse fishing to 12-pound for crankbaiting to 20-pound for flipping. Are you confused yet? How about lures? It used to be just the classic Zara Spook invented by James Heddon over 100 years ago. Now it’s evolved to dozens of versions of topwater lures from Japan or China all with creative looks to resemble a real fish, with magic designs and colors. And after spending $15 to $25 for this very realistic lure we have to send it to “Buddy Bill” who charges another $15 to strip the factory color scheme and replace it with a special one –of- akind paint job that more resembles a minnow that bass are likely feeding on today. Since this column is about to end, I’ll save for another time the types of spinnerbaits, jerkbaits, chatterbaits, crankbaits, jigs and soft plastic baits that only the mind of a bass fisherman can dream up. All this…and we still have to explain to our wives that we do in fact need all this to catch a silly green fish with a big mouth. Somehow, I don’t think the loves of our lives believe us.

Invasive weed from page 1

John Wulfken of Warrensburg holds a branch of Japanese Knotweed, a plant that is aggressively taking over vacant plots, waterway corridors as well as back yards in the region. Wulfken has volunteered to spread the word around town about the threat of the plant and how it can be controlled. Photo by Thom Randall

where it’s illegal to plant or spread. Uprooted Japanese Knotweed in the U.K. must be burned or go to a licensed disposal facility. The species can be identified by its oval leaves and hollow stems with distinct nodes that resemble young bamboo plants. Stems may reach 12 feet tall each year, even after they are cut back to the ground. The flowers are compound vertical blossoms, cream or white, that appear in late


under driveways and breaks up asphalt. It’s also known to grow through cracks in concrete walls, ruining foundations. “Some banks won’t write mortgages for properties that have Japanese Knotweed present on site,” he said. After waging his own personal battle for three months with Japanese Knotweed in his own back yard as well as his neighbors’, Wulfken decided recently to turn his effort into a crusade that will help others identify the pernicious weed and take efforts toward controlling it. “I’d like to let others know what a threat this weed can be, how it spreads like crazy and how much damage it can cause,” he said. Wulfken contacted town officials and volunteered to conduct curbside inspections, inform homeowners who have the weed on their property, and distribute brochures door-to-door describing the weed’s threat — and detailing methods of controlling it. Warrensburg Town Supervisor Kevin Geraghty said at the Aug. 8 town meeting he’s happy to take Wulfken up on his offer. Town officials praised Wulfken for demonstrating good citizenship in investing time to protect people’s property values and eliminate a weed that can be a burden to homeowners. Japanese knotweed is considered one of the world’s most aggressive invasive species. Its ability to propagate from cuttings or plant parts have led to it being classified as “Controlled Waste” in Britain,

ter, substances that can be used near waterways, or the more common Rodeo —all of which are glyphosate preparations.

Plant has its positive aspects In the meantime, people can make Japanese Knotweed tea or cook the leaves, which are a good a source of resveratrol, which can reduce blood sugar levels, serves as an antiinflammatory agent, and boosts longevity in some vertebrates. Furthermore, it is believed to combat cancer, slow tumor growth and may be an antiaging compound. Also, some studies indicate it can dramatically reduce plaque deposits in brains, and may serve to slow or reverse Alzheimer ’s symptoms. However, Japanese Knotweed does spread like crazy and overpower native plants, Bozony warned, as she lauded the new momentum in Warrensburg to rein in the spread of the pervasive plant. “If this campaign is conducted as a community effort over several years, it will go a long way to keep Japanese Knotweed under control,” she said.

summer or early fall. Wulfken warned that getting rid of the plant is difficult, as if it’s cut down, it vigorously re-sprouts from its roots. The most effective method of control is by killing the entire plant, including the roots by using a specific herbicide application method just prior to its flowering stage, or about now — late summer. This method calls for injecting a small amount of herbicide into the hollow stems, so it flows down into the roots. Kathy Bozony, Natural Resource Specialist for the environmental group Fund for Lake George, explained the process to the members several weeks ago to the Northern Lake George Rotary Club. In her talk on Japanese Knotweed, she warned the Rotarians about how pervasive it now was in Bolton, Hague and Silver Bay, among other lakeside communities. The hypodermic-like device she described is manufactured by JK Injection Systems, and costs about $200. She recommended using the herbicide Habitat or Aquamas-

Rich Larkin was one of a half-dozen or so Warrensburg citizens who aired criticisms Aug. 8 at a town meeting about a proposed local property maintenance law town officials are considering. A follow-up workshop on the law is set for 4 p.m. Sept. 5. Photo by Thom Randall

Property upkeep law from page 1 steps, walkways and driveways also need to be kept in good repair. The law also prohibits accumulation of debris, and garbage cans with lids must be provided and used. The ordinance also prohibits placing food out for animals in a manner that allows pests, rodents or wild animals to be attracted to their property. Although resident Rich Larkin praised the board with their work to improve the town, he also spoke of the hardship some residents might face in complying with the pro-

posed law. “Senior citizens on a fixed income might not be able to rebuild their porch, for instance,” he said. “We all want to improve Warrensburg, but do we send our seniors down the road if they can’t afford to live here? It’s a slippery slope you are walking on.” Town resident Richelene Morey objected to how extensively the law was written. Board members responded that it was written with such provisions to prevent a variety of situations that degrade local quality of life and depress property values. She warned that although the present board might not intend to strictly enforce the law, a subsequent board might be over-aggressive in its enforcement. “You might not be here in several years — You need to tweak this law,” she said. Morey objected to how extensively the proposed law mandated snow cleanup. Geraghty later responded that this provision, which was partially duplicated in existing town law, would likely be scrapped. Larry Perna of River St. said property owners shouldn’t be forced to paint their houses. Geraghty responded that the proposed law didn’t require painting house siding. The proposed law, however, requires a “weatherproof coating,” like paint or varnish, of virtually anything affixed to a house. Geraghty and Deputy Supervisor John Alexander said this provision would be subject to further discussion. “We’re not going to be the paint police,” Alexander said. Some residents criticized the provision that lawns must be mowed, and grass must not exceed 10 inches in height. Town Board member Linda Marcella responded that long grass hosted rodents and ticks, posing a threat to public health. Perna noted that the grass on some town-owned properties was now over a foot tall. “Who’s going to tell the town to clean up their properties?” he asked. Geraghty responded later he appreciated the input, and that town officials would take care of such issues. Resident Tina Sackman said the board should be careful not to be too extensive in their prohibitions, as a mixture of lifestyles is what made Warrensburg interesting. “I came from a ‘Stepford Wives’ suburban neighborhood,” she said. “I love how people here have their own sense of style.” She said that she was concerned that after the town forces cleanup of 10 or so “atrocious” properties, town officials might go further and venture into dictating taste. The board members responded that this would not occur. Robert Greene noted he owned 100 acres, and a portion of it had frontage on Main St. The law, as written, would force the removal of limbs of trees back in his remote woods, far from the street and out of view, he said. Greene also objected to the prohibition of setting out feed for animals. Also, the law could be interpreted, as written, to prohibit keeping firewood on one’s property, or a refuse

Warrensburg residents to pay $500 if they don’t install water meters soon By Thom Randall WARRENSBURG — In recent months, Warrensburg water district residents have had notices delivered to their door, received phone calls and seen news articles urging them to call the town hall to get a new waters meter installed in their homes. Yet despite a looming deadline, most of the homeowners — 672 of the 1,112 residential water customers — have not yet complied. As of Sept. 1, those homeowners who don’t make an appointment to get a water meter installed will pay a flat $500 annual fee for their water instead of the present $195 rate. The Warrensburg Town Board set the $500 fee Wednesday Aug. 8 to prompt people to have a meter installed, because the town is converting to a system in which water customers are charged based on volume used rather than paying flat fees set by household population and other factors. If the water meter in one’s household is more than a year old, it most likely needs to be replaced, town officials

Church fair crafters needed LAKE GEORGE — Artisans and craft vendors are now being sought for the 4th annual Craft Fair at Sacred Heart Church, 50 Mohican St., Lake George.

said, observing that the lack of compliance with the water meter installation effort is probably due to confusion among district residents. The meter conversion effort follows an initiative started in the early 1990s to charge homeowners for the gallonage used. Although meters were installed over the last 18 years or so, a previous town administration put the effort on hold, and a flat charge remained in place. Those water meters now need to be upgraded to allow for modern billing methods, Warrensburg Town Clerk Donna Combs said. Town Supervisor Kevin Geraghty noted that the pending switchover to billing by volume means fair charges for all, while reducing costs for the water district, which then lowers charges to water customers. With the partial installation of meters, the town has already reduced the consumption of water by 30,000 gallons per day, which is now saving local taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars in pumping and purification costs as well as sewage treatment expenses. The district pumps about 300,000 gal-

lons of water per day out of its four wells. After the 673 remaining households are converted to water meters, this drastic reduction in water consumption is expected to increase, generating further savings for all residents and businesses in the water district, Geraghty said. Commercial properties have already complied with the mandate to have water meters installed, and that conversion effort is complete. The commercial water customers are now being billed by usage. The new billing system is set to start in September, with households to be billed $195 for the first 20,000 gallons, plus $1.95 for every 1,000 gallons over 20,000 gallons used, according to plans, Combs said. Water district superintendent Thomas Belden noted that the average water consumption per person in the U.S. is 100 gallons per day per person. The average customer of the Warrensburg Water district, residential and commercial combined, uses 88,592 gallons per year, according to figures provided by the town.,where vendor information and a contract can be found.

Adirondack Journal - 19 container in one’s house, he said. “This law infringes on our freedoms,” Green said. Geraghty later said he’d review the provisions with the town attorney to assure the ordinance wasn’t too strict. Board member Bryan Rounds said the law would be used to clean up the most offensive properties. He said that the county and state codes already have similar mandates, and a local law means would allow faster enforcement that was more responsive to local situations and circumstances. Alexander noted that some time ago, a property near his home posed a public health and safety hazard — and the neighbors circulated petitions — but they were stymied in their efforts to force a cleanup, in part due to lack of a local law. Marcella said the town had received many complaints on property conditions, including one plot where a homeowner piled garbage in their car and in an unkempt back yard that contained an abandoned vehicle — conditions that posed a health hazard for those living in homes nearby. “It’s a matter of reining in bad neighbors,“ she said. “People should have the right to protect their health and property values.”
