Adirondack Hardware to hold energy expo in Keeseville By Katherine Clark katherine@denpubs.com KEESEVILLE — In preparation for the winter weather, Adirondack Hardware will hold their 12th annual Energy Expo at their Keeseville location on 1698 Front Street. The expo will be held on Friday, Aug. 24, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and again on Saturday, Aug. 25, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Visitors will be able to see a variety of different heating systems on live demos and others on display. Sales representatives will be on site to help shoppers with choosing the right product for the needs of their home. Roger Long, Jr., of Adirondack Hardware said the event was started by his father in 2001 as gas prices started escalating. “When energy costs were starting to rise we wanted to help anyway possible to show our customers how to save money,” Long said. “We started to look for products that were less expensive for customers to heat their homes with.” The August expo will give anyone who may be due for an upgraded heating system a chance to explore their buying options while the weather is mild. “We’re trying to get people to think ahead,” Long said. “It’s usually in late November, December or January when people look to replace heating systems because they’ve failed or aren’t working properly. This way people can avoid the panic of trying to find an alternative source of heat.” By holding the event in August, Long said it also gives the service members of the hardware store an opportunity to help the customers find the right unit, do a site visit to size out the home properly and set an install date. “It can take four-to-six weeks depending on how long it takes to determine the

Customers will be able to see a variety of different models such as kerosene, fuel oil, natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas, wood, and wood pellet heating systems. Adirondack Hardware carries a variety of carriers such as Napoleon, Rinnai and

Enviro. Long said the brands the expo will preview have been used and sold at the store for years. “We feel very confident in the products we carry,” Long said. Members of the community are invited to the event to ask questions and explore their heating options before the first win-

Viewpoint

Railway’s extension offers multiple benefits

I

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

Cuts made at food pantry

GUESTVIEWPOINT

Chilson chief proud of response

To the Times of Ti:

To the Times of Ti:

The Ticonderoga Food Pantry volunteers have just received word of a severe reduction in available items we can offer to those who visit the pantry. We are now being required to pay full price for many items we used to receive at a reduced price, which helped to stretch our funds to enable us to offer a more generous basket of food. This cut back was totally unexpected and will impact our work in a drastic way! We are saddened that we must pass this reduction in quantity on to those who visit our pantry, be we have no choice at this time. We always try very hard to use all funds and donations carefully to benefit the folks we serve in Ticonderoga and Putnam, to attain our goal of offering good nutritious food, and we will continue to do so to the best of our ability, given the new restrictions we are faced with. We regret this inconvenience to those we serve and ask for their understanding on the matter; this is out of our control and we sincerely wish these cut backs could be avoided but that is not to be. As a reminder: The pantry is open from 11 a.m. to noon Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Please be prepared with proof of residency. Margaret H. Beuerlein Food Pantry Director Ticonderoga

Everyone’s participation in this event is a great tribute to Brian’s memory, and we thank you all for your ongoing support. The event would not be the success it is without the help of all who volunteer their time before and during the tournament. We’d like to thank this year ’s volunteers: Steve and Carrie Popp, Kathy Wagstaff, Anna, Jim and Mike Mayhood, Julie Ida, Jo Mydlarz, the Russos, the McGrath family, Michelle Giordano, Rick Carpenter, the Bradfords, the Castillo families, Deanna Colburn, Kate LaVigne, and Baron, Jared Hammond, Michael Schmidtt.

As chief of Chilson Volunteer Fire Department I want to publicly thank the members of our department for their roles in saving the life of the truck driver whose rig went off Route 74 and into Eagle Lake in the early morning hours of Tuesday, Aug. 7. And as incident commander at the scene of the accident, I also want to thank all the members of the Ticonderoga Volunteer Fire Company and Schroon Lake Volunteer Fire Department who responded to the mutual aid call, and the members of the Ticonderoga Emergency Squad, all of whom took an active and essential part in the rescue. In fact, “mutual aid” is almost too mild a term to describe what happened that morning – all the responders on scene swung into action smoothly and effectively, working as one unit. This was especially true of the five men who went into the water to accomplish a difficult and dangerous extraction under near-impossible conditions. Cody Duval and Seth Hunsdon of Chilson VFD, and Eugene Alteri, Kyle Stonitsch and Matthew Watts of Ticonderoga VFD, worked smoothly together as a team, their years of training, practice and experience paying off in another life saved. Ticonderoga Police Chief Mark Johns and his officers secured the scene in their usual professional manner. And none of our efforts might even have been possible without the quick-thinking response of off-duty State Department of Environmental Conservation Officer Steve Stubing, who found the submerged truck and driver, called the accident in, stayed to reassure the driver, and then took emergency steps to contain oil that had spilled into the lake. All of these brave and selfless volunteers are citizens in the finest sense of the word, and I am proud to serve alongside them. Steve Hunsdon, Chief Chilson Volunteer Fire Department

Resist gay scout leaders To the Times of Ti: A big hurray for the article “One Nation under God” by Dan Alexander. We need more people like him. As a 42-year scoutmaster of Boy Scout Troop 71 of Ticonderoga, it distresses me to see them attacked by the Civil Liberties Union for refusing to let Gays be leaders in Boy Scouts of America. I urge every scout leader and parent to resist to the fullest extent of your ability and let national headquarters in Texas know of your resistance. Their address is Boy Scouts of America, 1325 West Walnut Hill Lane, P.O. Box152079, Irving, Texas 75105-2079. You might mention in your protest that a Ticonderoga, NY Zip 12883 resident donated a million dollars to Boy Scouts of America. I have a letter stating the money was to be used for operational expenses of national. I hate to think it might have to be used to fight a law suit, when the giver meant it to benefit the youth of America. P.S. Scoutmaster Dr. Mark Moss informed me that his Troop 72 will be spending a week at Camp Wakponimee some time this month, the beautiful scout camp at West Fort Ann, which is now owned by Twin Rivers Council of Albany. We wish them a very exciting and successful week. Charles “Gusher” Smith Ticonderoga

Professional health care To the Times of Ti: I would like to give a huge thank you to the medical profession here in Ti. My 6 year old granddaughter came up from South Carolina to visit with her family. She encountered an incident that required her to go to the ER at Moses Ludington. Her diagnosis lead to the need of an out patent operation ASAP. From the ER, we went to the heath center to get a referral to a surgeon. The quick thinking of the professional whom we saw knew of a surgeon that was in at the hospital here. We were seen by the surgeon and he took my granddaughter in right then and there. The surgery was short and we were home all in a matter of four hours. My family would like to extend a heart felt gratitude to Dr. Amanda Abrams, Lisa, the secretary at the health care facility, PA Jim Gabler, Dr. Harold Kirkpatrick, anesthesiologist Dave, nurse Kelly Billow and someone who paid for our item from the cafeteria. My granddaughter is autistic and was handled with the gentlest hands and kindest hearts. Everything went smoothly. Though our facilities are small, they do not compromise care. Sometimes the best things do come in small packages. Bunnie Fuller Ticonderoga

At the PRIDE Annual Membership Meeting on June 12 at Emerald’s Restaurant, Executive Director Sharon Reynolds recognizes outgoing President Doug Feick for his 6 years of service. Board Director, Bonnie Davis was also recognized at the event for her over 20 years of service with PRIDE.

The system needs the overhaul

Y

ou may believe government handouts are a poor way to solve anything. Although I used to feel that that was an ill-formed belief, I have listened, and I agree that it contributes more and more to big government inefficiency, causing government debt and/or higher taxes, often placing the burden on small businesses that can least afford it. But, now I have found myself relying on unemployment insurance (until it ran out), and now food stamps! Not in my wildest dreams! I am very qualified for at least ¾ of the hundreds of positions I have applied for. There is only one plausible explanation for why I have not received a first level of interest from more than a few. The way our system is set up, an older person will cost a business in with increased insurance premiums, because older persons tend to have more medical claims, and often more expensive ones. Ageism is against the law and immoral, but the SYSTEM we have trumps common decency and for many shreds the share of “pursuit of life, liberty, and justice” that our constitution boldly declares should be inalienable to all. It is not possible to change one subsystem among the many contained in an overall system, without first changing the overall system to accommodate and support the changes to the smaller part(s). Until we demand appropriate change across the board from congress, instead of henpecking at those who are at the bottom of the ladder, we are going nowhere. Jesus could have been saved by the many, if they had only opened their eyes to see what was really there in front of them. Instead they sealed His fate by crucifixion, by identifying Him as the bad guy! The sick irony of that ought not to be lost on us today. Don Austin, PhD Elizabethtown

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 my.democrats.org/page/s/contact-the-democrats and Republicans to gop.com/contact-us/. 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 dan@denpubs.com.

Corn maze to open at Fort Ticonderoga By Fred Herbst fred@denpubs.com TICONDEROGA — Confused? Not sure where you’re going? The “Heroic Maze” may be for you. Fort Ticonderoga has opened its second annual corn maze to the public. “Fort Ticonderoga developed the ‘Heroic Maze’ with a professional maze design company from Utah that used computer technology to translate intricate designs onto the landscape, creating a fun and exciting quest,” said Beth Hill, Fort Ti executive director. “The maze is divided into phases allowing two levels of difficulty and the chance to gain confidence in the smaller maze before tackling the main maze.” The six-acre corn maze is located near the King’s Garden. It has more than two miles of trails. The average journey will take from 20 minutes for the first phase to up to an hour for the main maze, Hill said. New this year is the “Archeology Quest,” a scavenger hunt in the corn maze. “Hidden in the maze are eight stations each representing an artifact,” Hill explained. “Players are given a ‘Quest Card’ to collect a stamp from each station. It takes perseverance and skill to find all the objects. Great fun for all ages. “Along with daily visitors to the ‘Heroic Maze,’ school field trip groups and other group tours will have the fun opportunity to learn about Fort Ticonderoga’s dramatic story while building teamwork skills as part of this interactive, interdisciplinary quest,” Hill said. In September and October the “Heroic Maze” will be open for group visits on Thursdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Registration is required. In late October the maze will be open after dark for “Flashlight Nights.”

“Conquer the maze guided by only your flashlight and question stations found along the pathways,” Hill said. Tickets will be available for Oct. 19, 20, 26, and 27. Advanced ticket purchase is encouraged. “The agricultural history at Fort Ticonderoga dates to 1756 when the French built the garrison gardens below the walls of the fort,” Hill said. “Today the formal display King’s Garden, along with educational Discovery Gardens, protected battlefields, sustainable modern farming practices and the corn maze continue this legacy. “All proceeds from Fort Ticonderoga has opened its second annual corn maze to the public.

Surveys being conducted door-to-door in Ti Solicitations worry town officials By Fred Herbst fred@denpubs.com TICONDEROGA — Ticonderoga is conducting a door-to-door income survey as part of its water project, while warning residents not to be confused by solicitations. The town has hired Liz Tedford to canvas the community in hopes of completing an income survey that is key to grant funding for the $13.8 million project. Confidential income surveys were sent to water customers in October. Officials had hoped to complete the survey work last fall, but to date only about 60 percent of the surveys have been returned. To be eligible for the grant funding, 65 percent of the surveys must be completed. “I know some people don’t like providing this information,” Supervisor Deb Malaney said, “but it’s entirely confidential. The surveys are numbered, there are no names, and they go directly to the IDA (Essex County Industrial Development Agency) in Elizabethtown. No one here will see them. “We need those surveys in order to save the

community money,” she said. Tedford will have identification when she visits homes and is working at the direction of the town board. That is not the case with HomeServe USA Repair Management Corp. It is a Miami, Fla.-based company that sells insurance to cover home repairs. It has an office in Albany. The firm recently sent letters to many Ticonderoga residents warning of costly water service repairs and offering financial protection at a cost of $64.08 a year. It asks residents to sign up for the coverage and submit credit card payment. Tonya Thompson, Ticonderoga town clerk, said many local people have contacted her office believing HomeServe USA is somehow related to the town and the ongoing water project. Ti Supervisor Deb Malaney urged residents to be careful in dealing with the company. Ticonderoga has no connection to HomeServe USA, she stressed. “This is extremely misleading,” Malaney said. Thompson has contacted the Ticonderoga Police Department and the state Attorney General’s office to investigate HomeServe USA’s actions in Ticonderoga.

Ticonderoga officials hope to drill test wells this month, another key step in a $13.8 million water project for the community. Engineers have identified possible groundwater sites and town officials are presently negotiating with property owners for use of the land. Test wells will be drilled to determine whether the locations have the capacity to meet local demand. “We’ve identified the sites, now it’s a question of how much water is there,” trustee Jeff Cook said. “Our engineers are confident they will find plenty of water.” In 2009 the state Department of Health ordered Ti to replace or cover the Gooseneck reservoir, which was created in 1931. The town developed a plan to replace the reservoir with tanks, but an inspection discovered problems with the Gooseneck dam and with transmission lines. Gooseneck was designed to serve the entire town, but over time demand exceeded Gooseneck’s capacity. In 1965 a Lake George water supply was developed for emergency use. Eventually Lake George water became necessary to meet daily demand. During a recent inspection the state also found problems at the Baldwin Road filtration

plant that handles Lake George water. At the urging of state officials, Ticonderoga then began considering an upgrade of the entire water system, utilizing groundwater sources. Preliminary engineering studies have identified five possible aquifers in Ticonderoga that could be water sources. Malaney said the project is on schedule to be completed in 2015. Construction is expected to begin in 2013. “The state is giving us two years,” Malaney said. “It’s a tight schedule, but we’re OK.” The estimated $13.8 million price tag is actually a bargain. The state Department of Health has ordered Ticonderoga to either replace Gooseneck or cover it. Covering the reservoir carries an estimated cost of $31 million. The state has also ordered repairs to the Lake George water system that could cost another $12-24 million. Ticonderoga has been declared a hardship case by the state, which makes it eligible for a no-interest loan to cover the project. That’s good news, but local officials are hoping for grant money with the help of residents who complete the confidential income surveys. Information on the project is available on the town website at www.townofticonderoga.com

She noted the store considered the community about six years ago but decided against coming at that time. Peebles lists its brands as Adidas, Sun River, U.S. Polo Assn, Elizabeth ArdenChaps, Hannah, New Balance, nautica, Levi’s, Company8, Dockers, Specialty Girl,Calvin Klein, Lee, Carter's, j.h. collectibles, Estee Lauder, Graphite, Wihul Park, naturalizer, Nike, South Pole, Clinique, Skechers, easyspirit, VanHeusen, Ruby Rd., Union Bay, Chaus, alfred dunner, Clark’s, BareTraps, Champion and Gloria Vanderbilt. An average store size is 18,350 selling square feet. In fiscal year 2010 the company had sales of approximately $1.5 billion. It has approximately 13,000 employees. “The company believes that it has developed a unique retailing concept and niche in these markets by offering a broad range of nationally recognized brand name merchandise with a high level of customer service in convenient locations,” according to the Stage Stores website. The company generally locates in areas with a population of 20-30,000 within a 10-mile radius, 20-30 miles away from a competitor department store and near a national discount retail store. The Ticonderoga area is on the low side of Stage’s population target, but its well removed from other department stores and has Wal-Mart located about a quarter mile from the former Grand Union building in Ticonderoga.

Families Must Make Safety a Priority While Hiking “Excellent Health Care Close To Home” www.AMCCares.org 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.

Schroon Lake man to go to national convention By Katherine Clark katherine@denpubs.com SCHROON — Former Town Board Councilman Mark Whitney will be attending the democratic national convention. Whitney, who said he is proud he has been voting since he was 18 years old, said he is excited to go to the convention as a designated voter and “take it all in.” Whitney submitted an application for consideration earlier this year. “When I sent my name in I wasn’t sure how the selection worked and I was happy when they looked more carefully at my resume and invited me to go,” Whitney said. Whitney will join Minerva Town Supervisor Sue Montgomery Corey for the week- long trip on Sept. 3. Whitney is an area volunteer fire fighter, a warden of the Adirondack Mission, and serves as vice district governor of the Lions Clubs. Whitney will be a designated voter at the convention and said he looks forward to participating in dialogue and listening to speakers. The Democratic National Convention will be taking place in Charlotte, N.C. Sept. 3-6. The Minerva supervisor and chair of the Essex County Democratic Committee will be headed to the national convention in September.

Moriah from page 1 bandstand. George’s Restaurant will serve food at Moriahstock and the Moriah Chamber of Commerce will sell “Moriahstock 2012” T-shirts for $10. The chamber will also hold a 50/50 raffle to benefit the Moriah Labor Day celebration. “We invite everyone to come to Port Henry and enjoy an afternoon of music and fun, Aug. 25,” Garrison said. The free event is part of an ongoing revitalization effort organized by the Moriah Community and Economic Development (EDGe) group along with pH7 and the Moriah Chamber of Commerce with the support of the town of Moriah and the village of Port Henry. The concert is expected to last six hours. Moriahstock is the brainchild of John Deflice. “John thought it would be a great showcase for local artist to display their talents on stage for the benefit of their community,” Garrison said. “It’ll be a casual, fun afternoon gathering for the entire family. Attendees are encouraged to visit local eateries and/or bring a picnic lunch to enjoy along with the music.” The Moriah Community and Economic Development (EDGe) group was formed at Garrison’s urging after he was elected to the town board three years ago. Adirondack Community Action Programs Executive Director Alan Jones has been elected president of “This is just one of many projects that have come from the formation of the Moriah Comthe New York State Community Action Agency Board.

Mineville-Witherbee postmaster retires Armstrong’s retirement is part of a retirementincentive program offered by the postal service. The Albany postal district had 92 postmasters retired July 31. Combined they had 2,700 years of experience. “That’s a lot of knowledge walking out the door in our district,” Armstrong said. “But it was the right time for me. I hit 60 years old last month (June). It’s time to do something else.” Replacing Armstrong is Leah King of Willsboro as officer-in-charge. She’s been working with Armstrong the past two months to learn the ropes

Jack Armstrong has retired after 26 years as postmaster in Mineville and Witherbee. He’s being replaced by Leah King of Willsboro.

By Fred Herbst fred@denpubs.com MINEVILLE — When Jack Armstrong woke up Aug. 1, he had one thought. “I’m going to do what I want to do,” he said, “not what I have to do.” Aug. 1 marked the first day of retirement for Armstrong after more than 35 years with the U.S. Postal Service, the last 26 as postmaster in Mineville and Witherbee. “I’ll miss the customers and my co-workers,” Armstrong said of retirement. “They’ve made the last 35 years seem like three; they’ve been great. “But I’m looking forward to taking it easy,” he added. “I’m going to take some time and figure out exactly what I want to do. I know I want to get back into golfing. I used to play four or five times a week, but since I became postmaster I really haven’t been able to play. I’ve decided I’m buying new irons.” Being postmaster has been a consuming job. “Since becoming postmaster I’ve probably worked 16 years of Saturdays,” Armstrong said. “I don’t think I’ve ever had a long weekend.” But he’s not complaining. “The postal service has provided well for my family and I feel fortunate to have had this job,” Armstrong said. “It (the Mineville-Witherbee post office) is less than a mile from my house. Not many people (in the postal service) have been able

at the Mineville-Witherbee Post Office. “I’m a little nervous,” she admitted. “Jack’s been great and everyone is really nice.” To mark his final day of work July 31, Armstrong bought lunch for his present and former co-workers. “I decided to splurge a little bit to say thank you,” Armstrong said. “It’s been a great team. All the offices work together and help out. I’ve always prided myself on office team work. I’ve never asked anyone to do something I won’t do myself. It’s time to say thank you.”

Ruth Rumney Carson “Mine are the landscapes of the heart”

to stay in their hometown. “To be in the same community where my mother and father taught a combined 78 years is special,” he said. Armstrong almost became a teacher, like his parents. He earned a degree in elementary education from SUNY-Plattsburgh in 1975. Unable to find a full-time teaching job, he was a substitute teacher and did odd jobs before joining the postal service April 9, 1977. He became the Mineville postmaster in March 1986. When the Mineville post office closed because of structural issues, he moved to the Witherbee post office. In 1996 a new post office was constructed to serve both Mineville and Witherbee. The consolidation of post offices was controversial at the time. Both communities feared they would lose their identity without a post office. In a compromise move, the postal service built the new facility between the two communities and allowed each to keep their zip code. “A lot of people were upset that there wasn’t going to be a post office in Mineville and one in Witherbee,” Armstrong recalled. “But I remember that first day we opened (the new facility). There were some older men who had worked together in the mines, but hadn’t seen each other in years. They met at the post office and stood outside talking for a long time. I remember thinking, ‘This is going to work out just fine.’”

Thank you to all who have shown so much kindness and support in our time of great loss, and to those who were there in spirit. She will be remembered both for the beauty of her paintings and for the love she showed to family and friends.

Gadget and Gizmos Everything the Bass fisherman thinks he needs:

Displaced, but still tied to the land

I

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.

T

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.

Racers challenge train for the 10th time By McKenna Kelly newsenterprise@denpubs.com NORTH CREEK — In all, 349 runners turned out on Saturday, Aug. 4 Race the Train’s 10th year. Of those, 69 managed to best the train it its 8.4-mile ride from Riparius to North Creek. Most of the racers and their families were at the North Creek train station by 8 am. Despite the early hour, the mass of people gathered outside the station was buzzing with life. Everyone started boarding either the train or buses around 8:15, for an 8:30 departure to Riparius. It was a bit of a late start, due to mechanical issues with the train, but once it got started everything ran smoothly for the duration of the event. Participation this year was at an all-time high. Long-time Race the Train volunteer and former town Supervisor Bill Thomas was surprised by the turn out. He attributed it to Race the Train’s one year hiatus, saying it gave the event a “heightened sense of anticipation.” The race couldn’t happen last year due to complications with the new rail road. Johnsburg Dollars for Scholars treasurer Larry Blackhurst was also quite pleased with this year ’s record numbers. “It’s just a mass of people,” Blackhurst said. “It’s really cool.” The race proper started at 9:15 am. The runners got little bit of a head start as spectators board the train for its return trip. The seats were filled with the racers’ families – parents, siblings, children, and friends all showed up to support their loved ones. The train stopped about 2/3 of the way through

the course so spectators could cheer the racers on and then again a few minutes before arriving back in North Creek at 10:20 am. The race staff weren’t the only people who were pleased with the event. All of the racers seemed to enjoy themselves as well. Many praised the uniqueness of racing against a train, loved the scenery, and thought the race itself was extremely well organized. “It’s really well run,” said Dee Jacobs, who

both beat the train and placed first in the 60+ age category. This was her first year participating. Jacobs enjoyed the fact that the race has a defined goal, and was pleased with the dirt track. Racers were also surprised by the water stations set up along the course. This year ’s race featured a competition for the best water station, so many of the volunteers running them decorated and dressed up in costume. Several racers commented on how in-

spiring the displays were. There was only one criticism; the difficultly of the track. Many racers found the many hills along the way especially challenging. “The hills didn’t end!” said first time racer Fiona Recchia. Recchia missed beating the train by mere seconds. Despite the hills, she says she’d definitely participate again. This seemed to be consensus among all the racers. The track may be difficult, but the experience as a whole was amazing.
