RAY BROOK Ñ The Adirondack Park Agency (APA) will hold a series of public hearings to solicit public comments for state land classification alternatives for former Finch Pruyn lands in the Central Adirondacks. These lands, containing some of the most important recreational and environmental assets in the Adirondack Park, will be opened to public use for the first time in more than 150 years. The classification proposals involve lands in the towns of Minerva and Newcomb, Essex County and the town of Indian Lake, Hamilton County. Detailed maps and the draft environmental impact statement describing the proposed action are available at the Adirondack Park Agency offices and on the APAÕ s website at The APA will hold public hearings throughout the Park and State to present alternative proposals and accept public comment. The APA will accept written public comment until July 19. APA Chairwoman Leilani Ulrich strongly encourages the public to participate in the public comment process. She stated, Ò The Adirondack Park Agency is proud to hold these public hearings on such a magnificent package of State land. Under Governor CuomoÕ s leadership this historic acquisition and classification process will ensure protection for astounding natural resources such as OK Slip Falls and will make the communities of the central part of the CONTINUED ON PAGE 9

Remembering North Creek veterans By Phil Sherotov NORTH CREEK Ñ During the Memorial Day ceremony here Monday, May 27, American Legion Post 629 Commander Terry Waterston and Pastor Terry Mosholder, who heads the Schroon Lake Community Church and will soon lead the North Creek United Methodist Church, spoke of the importance of remembering both the sacrifices of veterans and the

needs of those who are returning home. Waterston, who joined the Marine Corps in 1954, opened by noting, Ò Well, it’s not raining or snowing and even more importantly there are no blackflies.” She spoke about how it is our duty to keep the “memory in Memorial Day.” She said that while we are enjoying the parades and other celebrations, we should remember the veterans whose sacrifices. Ò As we cherish the men and women who came before, we are reminded to do everything within our power to support

our active and retired soldiers, sailors, air men, Marines, and Coast Guard men,” she added. “Good Morning, North Creek!” Mosholder exclaimed as he took the podium. A Vietnam combat veteran who served in the Marine Corps, he graduated from Pittsburgh University in 1987 and Wesley Theological Seminary in 1991. After being ordained in the Presbyterian Church in 1991, he has served in churches in New CONTINUED ON PAGE 8

APA sets hearings for former Finch land

ELIZABETHTOWN Ñ The Newcomb and Minerva school districts are sharing more than sports teams this spring; theyÕ re sharing the pain caused by defeated school budgets. The 2013-14 budgets for the other True North school districts Ñ Indian Lake, Long Lake and Johnsburg — were approved by voters on May 21. In Newcomb, the School Board set up a series of town hall meetings to get public input before decid-

ing how to trim the budget and tax levy, according to School Superintendent Skip Hults. “We really do believe in the voice of the community,” Hults said. The first public meeting was held on Thursday, May 23, with the second scheduled for Thursday, May 30 at 7 p.m. and the third on Monday, June 3 at 7 p.m., all at the school. The public hearing is expected to take place on Tuesday, June 11. In addition, Newcomb school officials are sending out a survey to residents to find out their priorities. On May 21, the Newcomb Central School District placed a 2013-14 budget on the ballot that included a

24.8 percent increase in the tax levy, well above the 6.94 percent increase allowed by the state. A 60 percent supermajority is needed among the electorate for school budgets that exceed the tax levy limit allowable by the state. Before the vote, Hults recognized the sizable increase in the tax levy but said it was necessary in order to keep programs in place. “We have worked so diligently to build a growing, vibrant school district, and if we were to do anything less, we would totally destroy what we’ve been CONTINUED ON PAGE 8

The flower portraits on display at TPCC are the result of an unexpected obsession with close-up photos of flowers as they emerged in spring and summer of 2008. They were taken without any particular purpose, but in 2009 they somehow became the object of a book project: “Adirondack Wildflower Portraits.” As the title implies, it is not intended as a field guide, but a set of photos showing the beauty of a wide range of flowers, including very small flowers that normally go unnoticed. The book does provide some innovative guide features, such as displaying them in the order in which they appear during the season, and including a color swatch for each flower. Several of these portraits have appeared in the Adirondack Explorer. The talk Curt will be giving on June 20 will include a slideshow of flower photos, and also will include remarks about how he took the photos and also some about the origins of flower geometries.

Great Camp Sagamore to host Theater Weekend at the end of summer


INDIAN LAKE — Tourism officials in Hamilton County last week began preparing for the July 21 Adirondack Challenge whitewater races and festival, originally pitched by Gov. Andrew Cuomo in his State of the State address and now being promoted through the I Love New York campaign. A week after video crews were taping a television commercial for the Adirondack Challenge in North River, officials from the town of Indian Lake, Indian Lake Chamber of Commerce and Hamilton County were rallying support from the community Thursday, May 23 at the Indian Lake Theater. A few dozen people showed up to hear about this event, which will be based in the town of Indian Lake. “We’re thrilled to have this opportunity,” Indian Lake Chamber of Commerce Board President Christine Pouch said in a phone interview on May 24. “This is great. It’s going to put Indian Lake on the map. This is the first of hopefully many Adirondack Challenges. WeÕ re looking forward to creating a wonderful opportunity for all these people from downstate that might not know what the Adirondacks are all about.” Hamilton County Board of Supervisors Chairman Bill Farber and Hamilton County Economic Development and Tourism Director Ann Melious were at the meeting, which was hosted by town and chamber officials. Hamilton County Tourism is organizing the festivities in Byron Park. The Indian Lake town and chamber are organizing the communitywide festival that will accompany the paddling event, similar to what they do for the Great Adirondack Moose Festival each September. The festivities will stretch from the Indian Lake Central School down State Route 28 to Byron Park on Lake Adirondack. “There will be a pretty large focus on fly fishing and a demonstration near Lake Adirondack,” Pouch said. “We’re going to have music in town, and there’s going to be some barbecues by the fire department and the American Legion and food vendors in town.” There will be artisan food vendors on the school lawn with an emphasis on products made in New York state. The festivities will start on Friday, July 19 and last through Sunday, July 21, the day of the Adirondack Challenge. The I Love New York website will be promoting events in the Central Adirondacks from July 12 to July 21 on the Adirondack Challenge webpage. “So if the town of Long Lake has an event during those days, they can submit information to Ann Melious, and she will get it posted on the I Love New York website,” Pouch said. “And then I Love New York will turn around and promote that and Tweet it, social media, the whole nine yards. So that will give us

Leviathan steam engine to make debut in NY

NORTH CREEK Ñ With the clanging of its brass bell and the billowy puffs of steam from its prominent stack, the Leviathan No. 63 Steam Engine will make its debut in New York state as it is hosted exclusively by the Saratoga & North Creek Railway (SNCRR) on Sept. 7-8 and 14-15th. The SNCRR, based in North Creek, is a division of Iowa Pacific Holdings of Chicago and has secured a special arrangement with the Leviathan’s owner David Kloke and the Historic Railroad Equipment Association of Illinois to bring this historic, full-sized standard gauge replica steam engine east for the first time. The Leviathan No. 63 is a model of the original locomotive built by the Schenectady Locomotive Works in 1868, one of four originally commissioned by the Central Pacific Railroad. Kloke and his team have spent thousands of man hours over 10 years to build the Leviathan, faithful to every detail. Railroad buffs of all ages will relish the attention to historic detail from its five-foot diameter cherry red driving wheels to its 88,000 pounds of rolling iron and steel. Spokespeople from Iowa Pacific expect nation-

s it really coming spring? This weekend did not prove to be the fact. Bitter cold, windy and rainy. The heat sure felt wonderful. So many plan for this weekend. Hope you all still were able to enjoy some of it. Despite the weather, there were many sales in the area. Hope all did great. Plan again soon. Monday turned out to be a great day for the parades. Several from the area traveled to Tennessee for the death of Frank Conlon. Family gathered together to talk about the good times. Sorry to hear about the death of K. Douglas Bennett and Lee Ann Rafferty. Also the death of Fred Kinnarney. Betty Monroe has been moved from the Glens Falls Hospital to The Orchards in Granville. Dauphin Conlon was so happy to receive many awards at his school, North Warren, last week. LetÕ s pray for the staff at the different schools that they can keep their jobs with talks of so many cuts. Agnes Straight and daughter, Shelly, traveled to Maine to be there for AgnesÕ grandson EarlÕ s graduation and to hear him preach on Sunday. It was great to see several cars at the Mearns house and that Tom Oesher and family went to their vacation home again so soon.

Notes from Planet Earth By Wes Dingman It’s About Time!

Alan Alda (the actor who performed in the TV series M.A.S.H.) recently established the Center for Communicating Science (CCS) with the goal of encouraging those who do science or teach science to improve their skills communicating science in stimulating and informative ways to youngsters. In conjunction with this he began (in 2012) a competition inviting scientists, science teachers, & students of science to answer an 11-year-oldÕ s challenging science question. Last year (2102) the question to answer was “What is a Flame?” Since then the competition has become known as the Ò Flame Challenge and this year the question for the competition was “What is Time?” The competition can be entered in two ways - either with a 300 word essay or a 6 minute video. The entries are then judged by 11-year-old children in schools around the country in two stages: first they pick the three best entries in each category (essay or video) out of the hundreds that are submitted from all over the world. Next, other groups of 11-year-olds pick the one they believe the best of the three finalists (in each category). Intrigued by the challenge, I elected to enter the competition with an essay. I improved upon my initial draft by getting young relatives and local 5th Grade Science students to critique my early drafts (a process strongly encouraged by the CCS). My entry was as follows: Ò Time is not like a bird or a peanut butter sandwich because we canÕ t hear, smell, taste, or touch time. And we canÕ t collect time in a cage. We canÕ t really see time either, although by using a clock we measure time in seconds, minutes and hours. Before clocks were invented our ancestors measured time by constructing a calendar and then counted sunrises, or full moons. But even without a clock we are usually aware that time goes on. We are able to do that because our brain allows us to remember things such as whether an event occurred before or after some other event. Without this ability to remember we would be unable to experience time, as happens when we are unconscious under anesthesia. Ò You might think that a minute would be the same amount of time everywhere, but it is not. The brilliant scientist Albert Einstein realized that space and time behave in strange ways. For example, he predicted that a clock travelling fast runs slower that a clock at rest. This has proven true and predicts that if you stayed on Earth and your twin sister took a fast trip in a spaceship you would grow older faster than she did while she was gone! Einstein also correctly predicted that a clock will run more slowly when itÕ s near the ground than when it was high above Earth. “But humans invented the word ‘time’ many centuries before we knew of these weird and surprising discoveries of Einstein. My guess is that the word ‘time’ was invented to express our awareness that both ourselves and the world around are always changing. “However, we’re still not sure when time began. Might you be one of those who help us decide that question?” IÕ m pleased to report that, although I did not win, thanks to our local students my entry was one of the three finalists. The entries of the other finalists can be viewed on CCSÕ s website: The Flame Challenge. Questions or suggestions from readers are welcomed; contact me at

Question of the Month

Could you tell about a place where you’ve had a lot of fun? Minerva Central School Mrs. Williford Kindergarten Ò I went to the toy store. I bought Skylanders.” (Hayden Taylor) Ò I went to a place where they crashed cars. It was really loud and fun. I got to get ice cream.” (Michael Stephens) Ò I had fun at the fun place! They call it the Fun Place because it’s really fun!” (James Fish) Ò I had fun at the school carnival. I bounced on the bouncy house and put the balls in the hoop.” (Caitlin Wamsley) Ò I went to the water park. I won a Pokemon price!” (Thomas Ball) Ò I went to the Bronx Zoo. I saw all the animals.” (Katelin McNally) Ò I had fun at Gore Mountain because I went skiing there.” (Alex Mather) Minerva Central School Miss. Gereau Grade 5 Ò There are lots of places that are fun like the Great Escape, Funspot or my MemaÕ s house. My favorite spot is my MemaÕ s because we can go four-wheeling and can stay over night there and then I can get ice cream and watch a lot of movies at night.” (Audrey

Fish) Ò I had fun at the Skate Park. I went there with my older sister. It was a lot of fun watching my sister and her friends doing tricks. I was on a scooter and my sister was on a bike. Then when we got home a 2 in the afternoon we went swimming with my older brother and sister. ItÕ s a lot of fun when I spend time with them

because they’re fun and I love them.” (Vince Charbonneau) “I have had a lot of fun in a lot of places, but the place where I have the most fun is the water amusement park. I am allowed to bring two friends and I usually bring Kaity and Alex. We go on a lot of fun rides, our favorites are raging rivers and the wave pool. We also love the round

up, the tilt-a-whirl, scrambler, silver back gorilla and all the rides except the Ferris wheels. We especially like the bumper cars.” (Jasmine Jenks)

Community service helps build character P L

ocal students have been learning a lot in the classroom during the 2012-13 school year and are preparing for their finals and RegentÕ s examinations as we speak. What we would like to draw attention to, though, is the learning that has been done at several schools this year that has had nothing to do with core curriculum or state testing. We’d like to recognize those schools that have place a value on not only the education that takes place inside school walls but also outside of those walls. Last week, Westport Central School students, under the direction of the student council, teachers Westport 8th graders Noah Hart and Ronald Adam Facteau and Cheryl Phillips, and support “Hoss” Logan help spruce up outside the Depot from the administration, held an ‘Adopt-Your- Theatre last week. Town Day’ event throughout the community. Photo by Keith Lobdell Students went to several locations in Westport, cleaning up streets, parks, trails, and buildings in a morning of service to the community that supports them. Each class was given an assignment at locations throughout the town and worked throughout the morning to help clean up their community. While not traditional classroom learning, students did get a lesson from their day in the community. Most of the kids were smiling as they served, with one saying that they had more fun working than they did during the field day events held afterward. The lesson is that serving the community you live in is always rewarding, something that you can take pride in not only as an individual but as a collective. Phillips and Facteau said that the day was created as part of the schoolÕ s focus on character education, especially when it comes to community service. More and more, schools are implementing a community service aspect to the curriculum of the district, asking students to give a certain number of hours working in the community and giving their time to others. The students at Westport Central School worked together to make their town a better place, and they should be commended as a group for what they did. Earlier this year, students at Willsboro Central School held a school-wide food drive for the local pantry. Once all the food was collected, the entire school formed a human chain from the entrance of the school to the entrance of the food pantry, handing donations one at a time between each other and working as one to show their support for the community. While these are two examples of school-wide service projects, there are many others that take place throughout the school year. Students in the Elizabethtown-Lewis Art Club painted murals at the Horace Nye Nursing Home and the Elizabethtown-Lewis Emergency Squad. The Schroon Lake National Honor Society hosts community blood drives and Ticonderoga students shop to support the local food pantry. All of these examples take learning outside of the classroom and into the real world, where perhaps the biggest lessons that young adults will need as they progress toward community citizens can take place. In order for a community to function, everyone should play a part. What schools are now doing is providing students not only with the tools to be a productive member of society when it comes to book learning, but also when it comes to character development. Giving students the building blocks of being strong citizens is vital in a world where reliance on each other is needed. We have seen how communities locally and nationally have rallied around each other in times of crisis or need, and giving students the chance to learn and grow through service to one other and the community ensures that the tradition of being there for others will continue well into the future.

Cow pie, cut me a slice


meled the participants with a driving rain. Many in the crowd joked about awarding winter Saranac 6Õ er status to all finishers. I listened as George Grzyb, an ultra hiker from downstate, complained the event was not going to begin until 8 a.m. “I drove up late last night and slept in my car,” he explained. Ò I thought it would start at daybreak! I just want to get it over with before last call at the Lake Placid Pub and Brewery, so I can enjoy a few pints of Ubu Ale!” Grzyb finished in 12th place. Another hiker, Matt Hicks was huddled inside to avoid the rain, but he was ready to hit the trail. Hicks hails from Poughkeepsie and is a NYS licensed guide, as well as an accomplished trail runner. He had recently completed a 50 Mile trail run in the Catskills. When asked to predict a time frame for the first event finishers, Hicks estimated it would take about 14.5 hours, due to the rain. He eventually completed the event in eighth place. The inaugural Ultra Saranac Sixer was Lake Placid resident Loring Porter, who rang the bell after tackling the required six local peaks in a time of just 10 hours, 22 minutes. Porter is an accomplished trail athlete who has tackled the Adirondack 46, the 111 Peaks (tallest mountains in the NorthEast), as well as Appalachian Trail, the Continental Divide and the Pacific Crest Trail. He explained: “When I first heard about the Saranac Sixer, I thought it was just silly, those little peaks! Then I thought about it and realized it was going to be hard to do 31 miles all in one go. The water and the rain really made it much tougher. I was the first one on McKenzie and there was a lot of snow up there.” It was nearly 40 minutes later before the next ultra finishers returned, and they were a pair of sisters, Bethany and Mallory Garretson from Cherry Valley near the Catskills. Bethany, who works in Saranac Lake, was joined by her sister for the event. They finished in 11 hours and 10 minutes. Covered in mud and shivering against the cold wind, the two sisters celebrated their accomplishment with friends and family. Ò It was cold up there,” they explained, “And there was a lot of snow, and running water on the trails. We we forced to forde several streams. It was a lot tougher than we expected!” I expect the Saranac Sixer program will continue to draw hikers to the smaller peaks, which will certainly benefit the regional tourism based economy. However, I hope the effort will also provide an incentive for local residents to get out and enjoy their surroundings. It will be interesting to see if the accomplishment of becoming a Saranac Sixer is embraced by local youth. Whether it requires climbing a High Peak or tackling a few of the low peaks, paddling the big lake or just a small pond; any opportunity to get outside is worth the effort. If we don’t learn to appreciate and take advantage our natural surroundings, there really isnÕ t a lot of entertainment available in the Adirondacks, especially for our youth.

t wasnÕ t that long ago when manure was thought of as a waste product. Recommendations were to dump it over the bank and use commercial fertilizer for crops. Many loads of manure got dumped into streams, so it would wash away. Out of sight, out of mind! Manure may be a biological waste from an animal, but it shouldnÕ t be discarded in a poop-like manner. Cow manure will supply your soil with organic matter, phosphorus, nitrogen and potassium. Manure conBy Rich Redman tains organic matter that is nutrient rich and readily decomposes to release those nutrients over time. One cow averages about 20 tons of manure per year. An application rate of 20 tons of manure per acre is realistic and will provide your soils with many nutrients. Soil, manure or leaf tissue tests will confirm what you need and how much to apply for the crops being grown. The organic matter fraction will improve the cation exchange capacity and possibly the pH of the soil. It has been shown where soils that received manure actually had better tilth and increased pore space. The type of barn and animal housing makes a difference in manure types. Solid manures come from bedded pack, tie stalls and stanchion barns, where chocolate milkshake consistency manure comes from free stall barns. Cattle on pasture use the direct deposit method. They give the cow pie back to the pasture where they just harvested some grass, a fair exchange I believe. How the manure is stored will also make a difference in the amount of nutrients lost or saved. If manure is stored in an earthen pit, concrete tank or large big blue steel tank, the manure is stored without oxygen and will go anaerobic. A crust will form over the top of the manure and the nutrients such as nitrogen will be less likely to volatilize and go into the atmosphere. Fresh liquid manure that is applied to fields should be plowed into the soil as soon as possible. This will help prevent nutrient loss to the atmosphere and from runoff if applied during a rain. The downfall of liquid manure is that along with the loss of nitrogen to the air when spread, there is manure like perfume that fills your senses. To some of us, it is the smell of farmers making a living. To others it is a vile smell and they say, ”farmers should not be farming here.” Those folks think their food just magically appears at the store all along thinking: who needs farmers anyway? Most of us know better. Composting manure allows oxygen into the mixture. Aerobic microbe activity reduces the volume of manure due to the breakdown of the organic portion of the manure and the bedding. There is also the loss of moisture through evaporation or leaching during the compost process. Composting manure concentrates the organics and nutrients. Compost should also be incorporated into the soil so you conserve nutrients. Compost is stable, and when applied to the land releases nutrients over time. Composted manure is also food for earthworms and other soil critters. Earthworms are a sign of a healthy soil that has the right amount of oxygen, organic matter, nutrients and moisture. Earthworms improve drainage and the oxygen levels in soil by their burrowing. An added benefit is that the worm casts are rich in nutrients. Did you know that at one time there were wildlife biologists stating that manure should be spread at the upper edges of wetlands on moist soil so it would promote earthworm habitat. Yes, along managed wetlands so there would be a large population of worms for woodcock to eat. Food for the woodcock! I think that is an idea worth pondering. Too many nutrients are a problem, but so is the lack of nutrients. Wildlife management is about habitat, and food is vital to habitat creation. Plants, whether vegetables and fruits for human use, or food plots for wildlife all require nutrients to live. During a plant’s growth, the roots absorb nutrients and the plant grows. The growth requires lots of nutrients that come from the soil. When they are harvested, there is a loss of nutrients to the soil. You are depleting the bank account so to speak. You need to feed the soil once again to complete the cycle. The earth giveth and the earth taketh away! This means manure is actually a food for your soil, not a waste product. Those cow pies are really culinary delights for earthworms and soil microbes that are a great benefit to your soil structure, organic matter content and moisture holding capacity. With proper soil and manure management, your soil health will improve. Healthy soils, healthy food, healthy cows, healthy people and a healthy farm economy! The next time you are walking your pasture kicking cow pies, remember itÕ s not just a biological waste product; itÕ s a three course meal along with a dessert for your soil, delivered fresh from the factory. Those bovines are part of the recycling process. They get feed from the plants that get their food from the soil. So order a slice of that cow pie for your plants, worms and microbes to eat, and donÕ t let it wash away. I read an old quote somewhere: Ò A wise man doesnÕ t kick a fresh cow pie.” I think that still holds true today! It’s Memorial Day week, and I want to say “welcome home” to all the Nam vets that never got the welcome home they deserved.

During the Memorial Day weekend, there were more snowflakes than blackflies in the air, after a late spring snowstorm deposited nearly three feet of fresh snow on Whiteface Mountain and the surrounding High Peaks.

The Saranac 6’ers H

eavy rains, strong winds, floods and more than three feet of fresh snow combined to usher in a most memorial, Memorial Day weekend in the Adirondacks. Although the long, holiday weekend has traditionally ushered in the beginning of the tourist season, the foul weather greatly diminished the crowds of hikers, bikers, paddlers and anglers that are typically found out and about. However, there was one major exception to the foul weather rule and it occurred in the village of Saranac Lake where nearly 100 hiking enthusiasts gathered in anticipation of becoming the first wave of Saranac Sixers. The Saranac 6Õ ers campaign is a community-based effort that is intended to attract hikers to a few of the ‘lower peaks’ of the Adirondacks. The idea is the brainchild of Saranac Lake Mayor Clyde Rabideau, who understands the importance of promoting the regionÕ s natural attractions. The campaign provides a climbing standard that is readily available and achievable by the average person. It is a ‘minor league’ version of the well established Adirondack 46’ers. Rather than attempting to tackle all 46 of the Adirondack High Peaks, the Saranac 6Õ ers campaign requires participants to climb just six local peaks, all of which are within easy striking distance of the community. The six peaks include McKenzie Mountain at 3,861 feet, which requires the longest hike of more than a 10-mile round trip. Ampersand Mountain at 3,261 feet is the next tallest, followed by Scarface Mountain at 3,088 feet elevation, and Haystack at 2,874. St. Regis Mountain in Pauls Smiths stands at 2,865 feet and Mt. Baker, in the village of Saranac Lake is the smallest at 2,452 feet. It also features the shortest hike of only an 1.8 mile round trip. In addition to the many hardcore hikers who took to the trails to set the standard, the Saranac 6Õ er Challenge has attracted a lot of local interest as well. I spoke with mother and daughter, Chrissie and Adrian Hayden of Saranac Lake on the morning of the campaignÕ s inaugural launch, who explained: Ò We plan on taking it at an easy pace, climbing just two peaks a day.” Her daughter was obviously excited at the prospect, and she offered: Ò We can see four of the mountains from our house.” “That’s great,” I replied. “But the view is much better when you can see your house from the top of the mountains.” While the Saranac 6’er Campaign will certainly serve to attract ‘ultra-hikers’ who are interested in speed and endurance, I expect the campaign will also prompt many local residents to get out and enjoy some of the surrounding summits that they have long enjoyed from a distance. After climbing all of the six peaks, hikers can register for Saranac 6Õ er status on the honor system. They will then be eligible to submit the dates to the village of Saranac Lake to receive an official Saranac Sixers number, a vest patch and a bumper sticker. Participants can attempt a variety of achievements with a Sixer finishing up all six peaks, and an Ultra 6’ers completing all six peaks in a 24-hour time span. Winter 6Õ ers will complete all six peaks during the winter season, and Family 6Õ ers will do it all as a family. I was in Saranac Lake last Saturday on a cold, wet and windy morning to see how many of the one hundred or so pre-registered 6Õ er participants would show up. The wind was whipping the rain sideways as the first few hikers staggered toward the sign-up station. The temperatures continued to drop and so did the rain, as weather conditions worsened throughout the day. By noon, snow had capped the nearby peaks and high winds pum-

The vote was 144 yes and 177 no. School Superintendent Tim Farrell sounded discouraged when reporting the defeat to the News Enterprise on the phone the night of May 21. School Board members discussed the situation during a special meeting on May 23. Their goal was to decide on a tax levy amount and start making cuts based on a new spending plan.

Ò Scripture tells us there is no greater love than laying down one’s own life to save someone else’s,” he said.

Does one life, one sacrifice make a difference? I asked myself these

questions,” he said. “It was only when I took the focus off of his death and put it on his gift, his sacrifice, that I realized that my friend wasnÕ t just one small wave in the ocean, he was a part of the whole ocean, and that every wave makes a difference, just like each life Ñ each sacrifice — makes a difference,” Mosholder said. While he was reflecting on some way to illustrate part of what he wanted to share with the audience, Mosholder said he remembered a unique feature of the B-17 and B-29 Bombers used in WWII. As the planes approach their target, the pilots would flip a switch and turn over control of the plane to the bombardier who would make the necessary adjustments before dropping their ordinance. Once this was accomplished, the bombardier would shout, “Bombs away!” signaling to the pilot that the mission was complete and that

it was now the pilotÕ s turn to take back control of the plane and return them safely home. Civilians, like the pilots, entrust our serviceman and women with the responsibility of defending our freedom and security. Our servicemen and women, like the bombardiers, take responsibility for completing the mission. Moshholder said that once our men and women in uniform complete their mission, it is our collective responsibility to ensure that they come home safely, just as it is the pilotÕ s responsibility to bring the bombardier home once he hears “Bombs away!” Ò We need to make sure that our veterans return to the dignity of a home, of employment, and of the health benefits they were promised when they signed on for the mission,” he concluded. After the ceremonial laying of the wreath, Waterston

paid tribute to Legionnaires who had passed away since last year by announcing each memberÕ s name followed by ringing the memorial bell: Ed Lapell, Jim Morwood, Burke “Punk” Swain, K. Douglas Bennett and Gordon Persons. Many groups participated in the parade and service. The Johnsburg Central School (JCS) Marching Band along with the flag corps were led by Boy Scout Troop 36, the Cub Scouts, and Girl Scout Brownies from the school to the memorial. Carolyn Bischoff sang the national anthem. Jonathan DeLappa directed the band; Mary Leach, the flag corps. The Rev. Ron Allen, Legion Post chaplain, gave the invocation and benediction. JCS Marching Band members, Jonathan Sears and Montana Berg performed “Taps.” After the service, people were invited to gather at the North Creek Volunteer Fire Company, where refreshments were provided.

APA hearings from page 1

Adirondack Park an unmatchable draw for outdoor enthusiasts.” Ò DEC looks forward to reviewing the public’s views on the proposed classification of the Essex Chain, Indian River and OK Slip Falls,” Department of Environmental Conservation Commissioner Joe Martens said. Ò Both APA and DEC rely on public participation to help identify issues and approaches to the responsible management of these precious lands. DECÕ s recommendations were made only after soliciting extensive input from local governments, the sporting community and conservation organizations. We want to

make sure that we get it right when it comes to protecting the resources and providing access to all New Yorkers to the largest addition to the Forest Preserve in more than a century. I applaud the APA for its diligence in holding these hearings and providing the public with a wide range of alternatives to consider and a full opportunity to provide their views.” The purpose of the public hearing process is to afford an opportunity for public comment on the broad range of classification alternatives before the Agency. Any person may present an oral or written statement in regard to the proposed alternatives. Staff will be available to answer questions prior to each of the hearings.

Public hearings will be held on the following dates at the listed times and locations: •Wednesday, June 12: 6 p.m., APA Headquarters, Ray Brook (to be webcast live and archived on APA website) •Monday, June 17: 1 p.m., Minerva Central School, 1466 County Route 29, Olmstedvi lle •Monday, June 17: 7 p.m., Newcomb Central School, 5535 State Route 28N, Newcomb •Tuesday, June 25: 6 p.m., Indian Lake Central School, 6345 NYS Route 30, Indian Lake, NY •Monday, July 1: 7 p.m., The Harley School, 1981 Clover Street, Rochester •Tuesday, July 2: 1 p.m., NYSDEC, 625 Broadway, Albany

These unique and adventurous opportunities will attract more visitors to Indian Lake, Blue Mountain Lake, Long Lake, Newcomb and Minerva. Tourists will utilize these communities for accommodations, supplies and guiding services. •The Essex Chain of Lakes and Hudson River: With 11 lakes and ponds interconnected or within portaging distance of each other, the Essex Chain will provide an outstanding canoe route and a much anticipated paddling experience. A long history of fish stocking that includes brook trout and landlocked salmon will ensure outstanding fishing. A five-mile stretch of the Hudson River runs along the east side of the Essex Chain parcel, completing an uninterrupted, “forever wild” stretch. The Essex Chain tract provides a premier opportunity for hunting, day rafting, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, overnight river trips, and camping. •Indian River Tract, Towns of Indian Lake and Minerva,

News Enterprise - 9 Hamilton and Essex Counties: One of the most exciting and popular whitewater rafting experiences in the Adirondacks starts on the Indian River and continues for nearly 15 miles down the Hudson River Gorge. The addition of this 940-acre tract to the Forest Preserve will preserve this wild experience for future generations. The tract is critical to enhancing rafting operations that draw over 25,000 people annually to this region. It is also a key tract in promoting new recreational opportunities by providing long-awaited access and take-out points that will make the upper Hudson River to the north a viable option for paddlers wishing to experience calmer waters but avoid the class III/ IV rapids of the Hudson River Gorge. •OK Slip Falls, Town of Indian Lake, Hamilton County: OK Slip Falls is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the Adirondack Park and part of a 2,800-acre property

that will soon be made available to the public for outdoor recreational pursuits. The tract contains 2.1 miles of the Hudson River, the Blue Ledges, the Hudson River Gorge, as well as Carter, Blue Ledge and Pug Hole Ponds. This area is home to more rare and significant mosses and liverworts than any other site in the Adirondack Park. This parcel is located within the Hudson River Gorge Primitive Area which is proposed for reclassification to a Wilderness Area. The meeting facilities are wheelchair accessible. Please provide any requests for specific accommodations to Keith McKeever at 891-4050. The mission of the Adirondack Park Agency is to protect the public and private resources of the Adirondack Park through the exercise of the powers and duties of the Agency as provided by law. For more information, call the APA at (518) 891-4050 or visit
