COUNTRY DANCE PARTY

This Week RECORDER CONCERT

By Shaun Kittle

Four Winds Recorder Consort to perform locally.

shaun@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH „ Most progressive ideas begin with a lot of discussions, followed by a lot of planning. And then, if they have the momentum, those ideas begin to take on a life of their own. In Plattsburgh, the newest product of that momentum„ First Friday„ will take to the streets downtown the weekend of June 7 and 8, and itÍ s shaping up to be a huge event. On the surface, First Friday will pack downtown full of performances, discounts and activities. Beneath that surface, proponents say it will increase tourism, benefit businesses, CONTINUED ON PAGE 14

Girl Scouts planning ‘Girl’s Weekend’ By Katherine Clark

katherine@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH „ Girl Scouts will be coming together for a day of bonding and meeting new scouts during an event titled ñ Girls Just Want to Have Funî on June 8 at Camp Tapawingo. The fun day will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and include a variety of common Girl Scout activities for the veteran members and for girls who have never participated to see what the Girl Scouts are all about. ñ This is a chance for a full day of the Girl Scout experience,î said Cindy Tucker, Northern Regional Manager for Strategic Partnerships. ñE very girl is different and we have a lot of different things to do.î The troops will do icebreakers to get everyone aquainted when they arrive. The games will include the Hula Hoop pass where players line up holding hands. If it is a very large group, the girls will divide into teams and pass the hula hoop by going through it and passing it to the next person. They will also do ñC hange Up,î where girls pick a subject and girls with things in common go to the center of the circle.

Museum Days offers excellent opportunity for learning By Claire Durham

shaun@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH—Since the first Museum Day was held in 2008, the all-day event has grown in both popularity and size. It all started when Bob Parks, President and Publisher of the Press-Republican, suggested his idea of a day to showcase the regionÍ s many museums. ñ I volunteered to contact other museums and see if we could do something as a group.î The original members of Museum Day were the Battle of Plattsburgh Museum, Champlain Valley Transportation Museum, Kent DeLord House Museum, Clinton County Historical Association and the North Country Historical Association Museum. As Museum Day became more popular each year, it began to move beyond Plattsburgh and became Museum Days in 2012 so an entire weekend could be dedicated to the free event. The sixth annual Museum Days, to be held Saturday, June 1 and Sunday, June 2, will include 24 museums, galleries and wineries throughout the North Country. Participating museums and galleries will be RSHQ IURP DP S P HDFK GD\ DQG Z LOO suspend admission fees. John Krueger, Executive Director of the KentDelord House Museum, has seen a lot of young families come because of the free admission. One year he dressed up as Henry DeLord and Frank Hall, the first and last occupants of the house near the Samuel de Champlain monument, and greeted visitors. ñ ItÍ s (Museum Days) a really good thing and the best example of historical parts in the area pulling together for the greater community,î

Krueger said. The Adirondack Coast Cultural Alliance, a committee formed from Museum Days that meets monthly to create brochures and coordinate activities, came up with one of the new attractions last year: a passport. Visitors can pick one up at any of the museums and then receive a stamp upon visiting the museums featured in the passport. Once the passport is filled with stamps, they can turn it in for a chance to win prizes at the end of the summer. Melissa Peck, Director of the Clinton County Historical Association, has seen big increases in visitors. ñ Museum Days is a big opening event telling people to come to the museums,î Peck said. Many of the museums offer different activities geared toward children. Since 2010, the CCHA has held an archaeological dig called ñ History of Mysteriesî for young enthusiasts. At the Champlain Valley Transportation Museum, kids have sat in a Homeland Security helicopter and the SheriffÍ s Department has given demonstrations on how to properly install a car seat. ñ The Clarkson Robotics Team came and did demonstrations,î Lisa LaFountain, Director of the CVTM, added. Helen Nerska, President of the CCHA and Manager of North Star Underground Railroad Museum, said they had received more than 5,000 visitors in 2012, up from about 4,000 in 2011.

Gioiosa’s Wine a nd S pirits, Inc.

The original GioiosaÍ s opened on Marion Street in Plattsburgh in 1949. When the Skyway Plaza was built in the early 1980s, GioiosaÍ s switched locations to be closer to the Airforce base, which was booming at the time. Latour is the fifth owner, and has made expansions to the store twice. It is now the second largest liquor store in Plattsburgh, next to the Wine and Liquor Warehouse on Smithfield Blvd. The first expansion came shortly after O’Brien Video closed. ñ The original store was tiny,î Latour said. ñ Barney, the guy I bought it from, had a picture of his mom on the wall. There were wooden shelves, a hand-painted wooden GioiosaÍ s sign and big curtains in the window.î ñ People have always felt very comfortable coming in here. They feel at home.î

shaun@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH „ GioiosaÍ s Wine and Spirits, Inc. has expanded once again. Rick Latour, who has owned GioiosaÍ s for 11 years, said the expansion will allow for many changes, including reduced prices and a greater selection of products. With more available space, Latour said he can now order more bottles of liquor at a time, which lowers his per-bottle cost. ñ Being able to buy deeper allows me to be more competitive,î Latour said. ñ I keep my pricing as low as I can to get the customers here.î More space also gave Latour room to try a new system for arranging his large wine selection. ñ When we had the wine on the other side, I did what everybody else did and broke it up by country,î Latour said. ñ But then somebody would come in and ask if I could show them a nice pinot noir. Ok. I have California pinot noirs, I have Australian pinot noirs. I have all these things, so IÍ d be walking them all around the store.î

Latour now has the wines grouped according to type„ varieties like merlot, sauvignon blanc, malbec, chardonnay and pinot noir each have their own section. Each type of wine is further divided into regions„ all Australian merlots, for example, are grouped together in the merlot section„ and those bottles are arranged according to price. The only exception to LatourÍ s wine layout is New York wines, which all share their own shelf. Latour added that the new layout should make the store more consumer-friendly, a characteristic he also expects from his staff. ñ When I hire people, every one of them knows they are to engage the customer when they come through the door,î Latour said. Also new to GioiosaÍ s is a selection of pre-made mixed drinks, which look like box wine bladders, minus the box. ñ WeÍ re also starting a section of the store for organics,î Latour said. ñ WeÍ ll have an end cap for anybody that wants either organic or sustainably farmed wines.î Latour is excited for his storeÍ s new offerings, but the business itself is anything but new.

the North Country including members from Reber, Elizabethtown, Plattsburgh, Chazy, and even across continental borders from Hemingford, Quebec. The group sings primarily barbershop quartet music. Sabourin said she hopes the Singsation program will bring in women of all ages including younger students on summer break from school through retired women. ñ Most adults might say ï I just couldnÍ t do it, I donÍ t sing,Í but they should know you donÍ t have to know music you just have to love to sing and want to sing with us,î said Sabourin. ñ I have a background in music and I became involved through a friend. It was definitely something new and different for me and it was somewhat of a challenge because I was used to singing a different way.î Barbershop singers and a capella music is primarily a male genre of music. Sabourin said itÍ s very fun for the women to get into their roles in the chorus. ñ ItÍ s very lively and sometimes I feel like IÍ m an actress and playing a part, we put on the flashy clothes and makeup,î said Sabourin.î IÍ m normally a jeans kind of girl so this has been fun.î There are four groups the singers are divided into; the leads which are normally soprano singers, tenor singers, baritone and base singers. Sabourin said when all four sounds come together it creates a beautiful sound. ñ There are a lot of goose bump moments when you not only hear the music but you feel the music,î said Sabourin. For anyone interested in participating in the Sweet Adelines they can attend the Singsation meeting on June 5 at 6:30 p.m. For more information about the group go to their website at champlainvalleychorus.org or call 563-6151.

North Countryman Editorial

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 RegentÍ 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. WeÍ 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 ï Adopt-Your- Theatre last week. Town DayÍ 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 schoolÍ 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. „

Style and Substance: Use your words!

Dear style & substance: Twice this week I have heard someone say, ï use your wordsÍ . I always think of it as a sarcastic remark, but does it actually have some value? Your first reaction to use your words as a sarcastic comment is fraught with emotion. We feel that sarcasm has no place in healthy relationships. That being said; our interpretation is two-fold. First, weÍ d like to say that asking another to ï use your wordsÍ has some value, but possibly using a different expression would open the door to better communication. For example, another interpretation that we have is more like, ï consider the words you are choosing and the effect that they are havingÍ . This term is most often used in situations of intense emotion, so trying to diffuse the intensity before real conversation begins will also set the stage for better communication and resolution. Very often instead of articulating emotion, we act first and deal with the fallout later. This most likely means that our frustration has gotten the best of us and we are impulsively behaving without thinking. It is a good time to perform a version of ï stop, drop and rollÍ in order to ultimately communicate with grace and truth. The power of emotion can steamroll over reason and respect, so stop long enough for reason to reenter the picture.

Always remember that the only way to expect people to ñ use their wordsî is to demonstrate your commitment to responsible and respectful communication yourself! FREE ADVICE NIGHTS: Wednesdays and First Fridays from 5:30 to 7 pm at the Champlain Wine Company email us your questions at yourstyleandsubstance@gmail.com or visit our website at www.yourstyleandsubstance.com and check out our blog at borderlessnorth.org

Swearing or yelling unnecessarily is demeaning to the listener as well as the speaker. (Almost always, swearing and yelling are unnecessary.) No real good comes from this type of interaction. We may feel better in the very short term; however, after emotion subsides, we often feel much worse. This may be a time when someone says something to the effect of ñ use your wordsî , as they are trying to head off the train wreck.

A BBQ to benefit the Elmore SPCA By Shaun Kittle

shaun@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH „ The Elmore SPCAÍ s fourth annual fundraising barbecue is Saturday, June 1 this year. The event will include food, live music and a silent auction, all to raise money for the Elmore SPCA. ñ All of the money goes toward general operating funds and What: Fourth annual barbecue to the daily care of the benefit the Elmore SPCA cats and dogs we Where: American Legion, 20 Quarry have at the shelter,î Road, Plattsburgh. said Kendra Maroon, : KHQ 6 DW X UGD\ -X QH IURP Board of Directors 7 p.m. member for the ElCost: $10 more SPCA. For more information, visit elmoreThe non-profit spca.org shelter adopted out about 300 cats and just as many dogs in 2012, and the costs of caring for those animals adds up. Each animal that comes to the shelter has to be bathed and given a check-up, which includes a heart worm test and rabies vaccination. They must also be spayed or neutered, a process whose cost is determined by weight. For larger canines, it can cost up to $150. A trainer also comes in to work with and help socialize the animals. “We do everything we can to make sure they find a forever home and never end up in a shelter again,î Maroon said. The shelter charges an adoption fee, which is also on a sliding scale relative to the animalÍ s size, but that fee rarely covers the costs of the pre-adoption care.

Mehr brings ‘Fort Apache’ home By Keith Lobdell

keith@denpubs.com WHALLONSBURG „ Scenes from Westport, Port Henry and Lake Placid came across the screen during the final night of the Champlain Valley Film SocietyÍ s winter season. The scenes were part of the movie, ñ Fort Apache,î which was directed by Westport native Addison Mehr as part of his senior project at NYU. “It was great to be able to shoot the film here where I grew up,î Mehr said to a packed house at the Whallonsburg Grange May 25. ñ Thank you all for coming out to see this.î “It is definitely a local boy made good story,” David Reuther said. ñ This is a great turnout for this movie.î Mehr introduced the movie and held a question and answer session following the 15-plus minute film. “It started out to be a short film that we wanted to be around 15 minutes. It was never supposed to be a feature,î he said. During the film, people in the audience would whisper to each other as they saw familiar site like the Stevenson Road Railroad crossing, Camp Dudley Road, Main Street and the Horse racing announcers stand in Westport; storefronts in Port Henry and the Palace Theatre in Lake Placid. Many local names were also listed in the credits to the movie, including a number of people who were in attendance for what Mehr called, ñ the Adirondack premiere.î ñ Well, that was a weird experience, wasnÍ t it?î Mehr said after the credits ended. ñ This is such a unique story and something that I could relate to, you know, the small town boy troubles.î Mehr said that the movie took seven days of shooting, followed by editing and putting together the final cut. ñ I wouldnÍ t want to change anything about this because there is something very magical about it,î Mehr said. ñ A bunch of people came together to put something like this together in a short amount of time.î

Dupree has first Airborne win

PLATTSBURGH „ Andy Lindeman shot underneath Patrick Dupree exiting turn two with eight laps remaining in the Ernie’s Tools DIRTcar Modified 30-lap feature and sped off to a four car-length victory in the DawsonÍ s Auto Body No. 3 at Airborne Speedway on May 18. Kris Vernold held off Todd Stone for third. Jessey Mueller was 5th, followed closely by Leon Gonyo, Pierre Berthiaume and Andy Heywood. After two early yellows – the first for last week’s winner George Foley, who had electrical problems - Dupree and Lindeman broke away from the pack as the race stayed under green. Vernold moved into third early when Foley shut down and he was never passed. Stone used both the high side and the bottom to come up through the field after starting 18. Mueller spent most of the race as the last car in a four-car pack with Gonyo, Berthiaume and Heywood, then got by all three. Chris Cayea and Adam Bartemy completed the top ten. Richie Turner of Milton, VT came out on top of the Renegade feature after race leaders Don Franklin and Lance Rabtoy tangled with seven laps to go. Robert Gordon of Milton, VT was the runner-up. Jason McClatchie of Plattsburgh was third. Chris Sousie of Plattsburgh held off Nick Heywood to secure his first J&S Steel Sportsman Modified win. Heywood closed within striking distance of Sousie with seven laps to go, but was unable to pass him. Travis Bruno finished third. Sousie gained the lead on lap 15 when leaders Keith Pelkey and Mike Phinney collided and swerved off the track into the backstretch barrier. Dale O’Neil of Mooers won the Mini Modified feature.

First Friday From page 1

encourage pride within the community and support artists and musicians who want to perform here. Some of the details still need to be worked out, but the rapidity in which itÍ s come together has surprised even the most dedicated of the eventÍ s organizers„ it has gone from an idea to an event in a few months. As the name implies, Plattsburgh’s first First Friday will take place on Friday, June 7. In the evening, participating businesses will feature entertainment, and 10 percent discount coupons will be available at yetto-be-determined locations downtown. Future First Fridays will coincide with events at locations including the Strand Theater, the North Country Cultural Center for the Arts and ROTA Gallery, with coupons also available at those locations. ñ We feel that once the Strand becomes more operational and more connected as an organization, itÍ s going to have a great economic impact, and we want to start that off right by working with the businesses,î said Janine Scherline, Executive Director of the NCCCA. Dr. Colin Read, chair of the SUNY Plattsburgh Department of

www.northcountryman.com

June 1, 2013

Finance and Economics and owner of the Champlain Wine Company, has been a driving force behind encouraging First Friday discussions, and said that eight businesses signed up within 24 hours of receiving an email he sent. It is a number he hopes to see grow to 20 in the next two weeks. ñ As others see the success in this, I think theyÍ ll want to be on board, too,î Read said. ñ We get a 4 percent cut of all the sales tax, and about a quarter of that goes to the city. So about 1 percent of any revenue generated comes back to the city. The idea is that this is really good for the city coffers, and eventually the city can help pay for some of the infrastructure to sustain this.î ñ WeÍ re not talking about more spending, weÍ re talking about spending as an investment to generate tax revenue offset.î But, since most business owners said business is already booming Friday and Saturday nights, the First Friday idea had to be expanded„ to Saturday afternoon. And thatÍ s where the 10-percent discount coupons come in. On Saturday, following the Plattsburgh FarmersÍ and CraftersÍ Market at 2 p.m., the discount coupons can be redeemed at any of the participating businesses. To further encourage people to stay downtown, Tim McCormick, a board member with the Adirondack Young Professionals, has been making connections with musicians, who have all volunteered to perform throughout the afternoon.

So far, McCormick said former American Idol contestant Benjamin Bright, pianist Jay Lesage, and members of Lucid have all agreed to bring their talents to various locations downtown. The Lumber Jills will also be on-hand, and the Imaginarium ChildrenÍ s Museum has shown interest in doing something, too, McCormick said. If the eventÍ s coordinators have their way, First Fridays will transform Plattsburgh into a go-to destination where visitors support downtown businesses while enjoying outdoor performances from any number of sidewalk buskers. With so many individuals and entities involved, it is difficult to pinpoint who started First Friday, and the truth is, it came from several different places. Some business owners in the area having been passing similar ideas around for years. Talk about re-stoking the now defunct Plattsburgh Downtown Association came to the floor during an open-to-the-public Adirondack Young Professionals meeting held at Olive RidleyÍ s in April. Meanwhile, the North Country Cultural Center for the Arts board was busy developing its own ñ Downtown Neighborhood Network,î which is becoming one of the centerpieces of the event. ñ Our staff had been brainstorming different ways to get people downtown, going to the different shops and restaurants, and probably coming in here to see some art as well,î explained Emily Owens, Education Coordinator at the NCCCA. ñ Our idea was that if everybody did something„ and it doesnÍ t have to be huge„ on the same night, all together, it would make one larger event.î The NCCCA recently developed a sign-up pamphlet for businesses that want to get involved with the network. For a $12 membership fee, business owners can sign up and agree to be open the first Friday of every month through September. They must also agree to offer either an activity, like music or a family program, or a special discount that evening. In exchange, the NCCCA will feature all businesses in the network on their exhibition programs, playbills and website for one year. Participating businesses also receive a subscription to NCCCAÍ s newsletter and e-newsletter. “It seems like there have been four or five groups thinking along these lines all along,î Scherline said. Vision 2 Action has also been talking about bringing downtown to life using buskers and businesses. ñ Part of the V2A goal is that, whatever we do here helps us strengthen regionally,î said Devi Momot, chairperson of V2A. ñ If we have an impact here, itÍ s going to help the town, itÍ s going to help Malone, itÍ s going to help Saranac Lake. Rather than competing with our neighboring communities, letÍ s energize and strengthen each other.î Momot added that creating that kind of synergy is part of what V2A is all about, and that events like First Friday can give communities like Plattsburgh a sense of identity. And the best way to make it successful, she said, is to get involved. ñ ItÍ s easy to say ï Somebody needs to do this.Í The truth is, that somebody could be you.î To get involved, contact Vision 2 Action through their website, ncvision2action.org, or their Facebook page at facebook.com/ vision2action?fref=ts. Businesses interested in getting involved in the Downtown Neighborhood Network can contact the North Country Cultural Center for the Arts at 563-1604. Buskers, businesses and others whoÍ d like to learn more can email Colin Read at readcl@gmail.com

Cow pie, cut me a slice

I

meled the participants with a driving rain. Many in the crowd joked about awarding winter Saranac 6Í 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. ñ I drove up late last night and slept in my car,î he explained. ñ 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!î 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.î 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. ñ It was cold up there,î they explained, ñ 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!î 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 donÍ t learn to appreciate and take advantage our natural surroundings, there really isnÍ t a lot of entertainment available in the Adirondacks, especially for our youth.

t wasnÍ 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 shouldnÍ 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, î farmers should not be farming here.î 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 plantÍ 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 itÍ s not just a biological waste product; itÍ 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 donÍ t let it wash away. I read an old quote somewhere: ñ A wise man doesnÍ t kick a fresh cow pie.î I think that still holds true today! ItÍ s Memorial Day week, and I want to say ñ welcome homeî 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 6Í ers campaign is a community-based effort that is intended to attract hikers to a few of the ï lower peaksÍ of the Adirondacks. The idea is the brainchild of Saranac Lake Mayor Clyde Rabideau, who understands the importance of promoting the regionÍ s natural attractions. The campaign provides a climbing standard that is readily available and achievable by the average person. It is a ï minor leagueÍ version of the well established Adirondack 46Í ers. Rather than attempting to tackle all 46 of the Adirondack High Peaks, the Saranac 6Í 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 6Í 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 campaignÍ s inaugural launch, who explained: ñ We plan on taking it at an easy pace, climbing just two peaks a day.î Her daughter was obviously excited at the prospect, and she offered: ñ We can see four of the mountains from our house.î ñ ThatÍ s great,î I replied. ñ But the view is much better when you can see your house from the top of the mountains.î While the Saranac 6Í er Campaign will certainly serve to attract ï ultra-hikersÍ 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 6Í 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 6Í ers will complete all six peaks during the winter season, and Family 6Í 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 6Í 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-
