Bike Fest returns to Whiteface Mtn. Father’s Day weekend WILMINGTON — The fourth annual Bike Fest calls to cyclists to put the pedal to the mountain and enjoy a weekend of family fun and activities at Whiteface Mountain. The Wilmington Whiteface Bike Fest will begin on June 14 through June 16 for a weekend with a mix of uphill, downhill, road bike, mountain bike, serious competition and include an array of family fun activities and demonstrations to bring everyone to their pedals. The event was born after the success of another Whiteface bike program, the Uphill Race. Michelle Burns, Operations Manager for Whiteface Visitors Bureau, said they wanted to broaden the event to be more inclusive to not just athletes from outside the area but as a way to invite locals to enjoy the festivities. “We started small with the first event and we just kept adding to it as more and more people have come to be a part of it. This event is showing people that Wilmington is the biking capital of the Adirondacks,” said Burns. “We want the locals to come out see we have a lot for everyone to enjoy from small kids to the avid biker.” The weekend will begin with Jump Jams with stunts, jumps and tricks at the Wilmington Bike Park on Park Road, where there will be professional stunt performances by Elias Ingram and other pro pump track riders, Taylor WrightSanson will perform unicycle theatrics on the dirt course, and Sam Perkins will show off his mastery in bike acrobatics. “We want to show off some of our local talent and show kids how to have fun in their own backyards with their bikes riding around in the dirt,” said Burns. “It should be a really fun time for everyone to see it.” After the Jump Jams, the party moves to the Cloud Spin Lounge at the Whiteface Ski Centerwhere the festivities continue with the third annual welcome party that will include giveaways, live music with a DJ and the infamous “Best Calves of Wilmington Contest.” “Everyone in the room will be checked out for the contest. We have the most fun at that event and we give out an award for the party member with the best calves,” said Burns. The winner of the contest will have their name memorialized on a one of a kind trophy. The tro-

phy, made by Bike Fest committee member Bob Hockert pays homage to the movie a Christmas Story with a mannequin leg dressed in stockings under a lamp shade with a base made out of bike gears. “I don’t know what you would call it, its a really fun thing to see and I guess we can call it a trophy,” said Burns. On Saturday, June 15, the 12th Annual Whiteface Mountain Uphill Bike Race will begin at 8 a.m. This road race up the Whiteface Moun-

tain Veterans Memorial Highway is part of the BUMPS (Bike Up the Mountain Point) series. The series comprises of ten races on mountains of the Northeast, on courses of varying lengths and pitches. New this year will be a two-day open market Vendor Village on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the base of Whiteface Mountain. The vender village will be open to the public at no admission cost. An Air Bag Free Fall, which is set up at White

Face for athletes to improve freestyle and freeride skills by jumping to the air bag will be available for the visiting public to purchase passes for. The gondola will also be running for visitors to purchase boarding passes to ride to the top of the mountain. Races for Saturday will include the country races and group rides, poor man’s downhill, riders will be picked up by shuttle and driven to the trial that will lead riders down to the Wilmington Town Beach where a party awaits. “This event is no longer just about the bike races but has grown to be something more,” said Burns. “It’s really a place for everyone to come and enjoy, see athletes perform, walk around our vendor village to see some of our great local businesses and services and really for everyone to have fun.” Guests can wind down with a Beach Party starting at 5 p.m. with live music, food and fun. Infamous Adirondack based-band Lucid will perform for the party till 8 p.m. and food will be available from Liquids and Solids of Lake Placid and Propers Food Stand. On Sunday the 3rd Annual Wilmington/ Whiteface 100k Mountain Bike Race will take place with a shotgun start at 7 a.m. The 100k race is a qualifier for the Leadville Trail 100 mountain bike race. The WW100 both begins and ends at Whiteface Mountain, with a 69-mile long race that will take competitors up and down and twisting through jeep and gravel roads, backcountry trails and climbs that measure more than 750 meters each. All of this ends with a pair of 350-foot climbs at Whiteface ahead of the finish line. Burns said cyclists who may not be ready for the full WW100 can also compete in the newly-added 50K event, and a newly-established TEAM class which will consist of two-member teams each riding the 50K course. Registration is now available for the Wilmington Whiteface 100K. The entry fee is $70 for solo riders, $120 for two-person relay teams and $105 for a tandem bike. “There is no weekend like it, Bike Fest is truly something we offer for everyone,” said Burns. “It’s a great community event and we want to show people what a great community we have.” For more information about the weekend’s events, and to register contact the Whiteface Region Business & Tourism Center at 946-2255 or email:

Lake Placid lacrosse tournament set to celebrate 25 years

LAKE PLACID „ An event that started with seven teams 24 years ago in Lake Placid has evolved into the premiere lacrosse event in the nation as the annual Lake Placid Summit Lacrosse Tournament prepares for its next edition August 5-11. Contests will be held in boyÍ s and girlÍ s scholastic divisions, menÍ s and womenÍ s open divisions, and menÍ s Masters, Grand Masters and Super Grand Masters. Over 500 lacrosse games are planned on 12 fields all located a short distance from the two-time Winter Olympic village. With approximately 4,000 players and 1.5 additional visitors per player, an estimated 9,500 guests will create significant economic impact in Lake Placid over the seven days of the event. Two years ago with less in attendance, the Lake Placid Visitors Bureau and Regional Office of Sustainable Tourism estimated direct spending from the tournament at $3.6 million. Teams are coming to Lake Placid from New York, New England, the mid-Atlantic region, as well as Kansas, Florida, Colorado, Oregon and Canada. More than 15 college alumni groups, including Syracuse, Johns Hopkins, Cornell, George-

town, and Penn, will have teams playing in the tournament. Organizers report waiting lists of teams in virtually every division. ñ We are really excited about our 24th tournament and the addition of Samuel Adams to our prestigious group of sponsors, led by Warrior Lacrosse,î said George Leveille, the tournament founder and operator. ñ Looking back to 1990, we could never have envisioned the growth and popularity of the event that we have experienced over the years, and we are truly grateful to the greater Lake Placid community for their tremendous support of our business.î As tournament organizers unveil the 2013 Lake Placid Summit Lacrosse Tournament, Warrior Lacrosse returns as the major sponsor, but they have also confirmed a new sponsorship with Samuel Adams as the Official Beer of the Lake Placid Lacrosse Summit. The week-long competition has become Lake PlacidÍ s second largest event behind only the Ironman Triathlon, which will occur a week earlier.

Valley News Editorial

It’s June, and it’s itchy


pstate New YorkÍ s left hand has been itching for generations „ jobs pouring out of the state, leaving the economy a bust. Gov. Andrew Cuomo hopes to reverse that trend with his Tax-Free NY program „ switching the itch from the left to right hand, thus revitalizing the upstate economy by creating new jobs. Will it work? ItÍ s worth a shot. But the governor should be honest about the implications to reduced tax revenues. He says there wonÍ t be any, but weÍ re not sure about that. So the governorÍ s got this itch. He wants to develop tax-free business zones in upstate communities „ mainly around SUNY campuses. After all, 93 percent of New Yorkers live within 15 miles of a SUNY Campus, 97 percent within 20 miles. ñ If you took the North Country out ... that number would change dramatically,î Cuomo said during his May 29 Tax-Free NY announcement in Albany. ThatÍ s great news for creating jobs in Plattsburgh (SUNY Plattsburgh and Clinton Community College), Saranac Lake and Ticonderoga (North Country Community College). For many of our readers, however, it does nothing. WeÍ re not most New Yorkers. WeÍ re the 3 percent. Large expanses of the Adirondack Park contain communities more than 20 miles from a SUNY campus. With blackflies vastly outnumbering residents here in the sticks, the governor should also develop an economic development program for the 3 percent. Something more than buying private land, adding it to the state Forest Preserve and promising economic development in the wake of these multi-million-dollar land deals. Tourists who visit the wild lands „ mostly pork Í nÍ beaners who stay in tents and bring their own food „ have little impact on the local economy. They may buy bug dope at HossÍ s Country Corner in Long Lake, but thatÍ s not job creation. Luckily, the governor has made inroads in the Adirondack Park. He genuinely likes it here. HeÍ s setting up the Adirondack Challenge event in Indian Lake in July, promoting the Adirondack Park through I Love New York. WeÍ re wholeheartedly behind this event and thank him for his support and attention. But thatÍ s still not job creation. When the governor made his Tax-Free NY announcement, he said, ñ You canÍ t do more than this,î meaning the state canÍ t do more than

freeing businesses from all state taxes for a limited amount of time „ 10 years for sales, property, and business/corporate taxes. ñ You canÍ t go lower than zero.î And employees would be exempt from paying income taxes for five years. The goal is to set up tax-free communities that promote entrepreneurship and job creation. But we donÍ t like the time limit for the tax exemption. What happens after 10 years? Do the businesses close shop or simply move to a state thatÍ s tax-friendly more than 10 years? And while the stateÍ s budget director says there is ñ no costî to the state, meaning there is no out-of-pocket expense, there is most definitely a cost when you donÍ t collect taxes. WeÍ ve already seen what happens when revenue falls short of expectations. After the countryÍ s economic collapse and federal bailout of Wall Street firms in 2008, many financial institutions were paying a lot less in state taxes. And that reduction in tax revenue led to a budget deficit reaching $15 billion for the state. WeÍ re not saying these tax-free zones will result in a $15 billion budget shortfall, but there will most likely be some reduction. When thereÍ s a reduction in sales tax, government agencies that reap the benefit of those taxes need to make up for the shortfall: the state, counties and towns in some instances. What happens when businesses donÍ t pay property taxes? It means higher taxes for the other property owners. ShouldnÍ t the state be generating economic development that adds businesses to the tax rolls instead of taking them off? ThatÍ s why thereÍ s a stigma for having taxexempt properties in town ... no revenue. In this tax-cap era, this could make balancing budgets even harder for some communities and school districts. Many are already cutting jobs. Details, such as eligibility requirements, still need to be worked out for Tax-Free NY. How will the state measure the 1-mile radius around SUNY campuses? As the crow flies? So what does the State Legislature do with this ñ game changer,î as Cuomo calls it? ñ It can only be good,î he said. WeÍ re not totally convinced yet, but we donÍ t have any better ideas. WeÍ re asking our state legislators to ask the governor tough questions and get some honest answers before casting their votes on this program. DonÍ t get caught up in the hype and the promise of new jobs. There is a cost here. And please talk to your constituents before scratching Andrew CuomoÍ s latest itch. „ Denton Editorial Board

Music of Van Cliburn celebrated at LPCA Best Adirondack books LAKE PLACID „ A program celebrating the life of extraordinary musician Van Cliburn will be held on Sunday, June 30, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts and hosted by the Lake Placid Sinfonietta, the Lake Placid-North Elba Historical Society, the Adirondack Film Society and the Lake Placid Center for the Arts. The program will feature a film documentary of Van Cliburn by Emmy Award winning director Peter Rosen and narrated by Dan Rather, a National PBS News Hour feature from 2008, performance footage, and never-beforepublicly-shown home videos as well as commentary from Richard Rodzinski President Emeritus of the Van Cliburn Foundation, Film Director Rosen, and others with ties to this legendary pianist. Musicians and piano students as well as the general public will enjoy this evening to reflect on the life of Van Cliburn and hear personal perspectives about him from friends and associates. Cliburn was an American hero. He was hailed as one of the most persuasive ambassadors of American culture, as well as one of the greatest pianists in the history of music. With his historic 1958 victory at the first International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, at the

height of the Cold War, Van Cliburn tore down cultural barriers years ahead of glasnost and perestroika, transcending politics by demonstrating the universality of classical music. Returning home from Moscow, Cliburn received a ticker-tape parade in New York City, the only time a classical musician was ever honored with the highest tribute possible by the City of New York. Cliburn performed for every President of the United States since Harry Truman and for royalty and heads of state in Europe, Asia, and South America. He received Kennedy Center Honors and the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. In a 2004 Kremlin ceremony he received the Order of Friendship from President Vladimir Putin, and in 2003, President George W. Bush bestowed upon him the Presidential Medal of Freedom. President Barack Obama honored Mr. Cliburn with the National Medal of Arts in a ceremony at the White House in 2011. Cliburn also has a connection to Lake Placid and the history of the arts in the community. When the Center for Music and Dramatic Arts was established (now the Lake Placid Center for the Arts), Cliburn was called upon to select and be

the first to perform on the grand piano that remains in use at the Center today. ñ We are thrilled to be hosting this program collaboratively with area organizations and are honored to be Celebrating Van Cliburn as part of our arts programming at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts,î said James Lemons, Executive Director. ñ We are excited that a special program devoted exclusively to Van Cliburn will EH W KH HQ W UH W R RXU /DNH 3 ODFLG 6LQ fonietta summer season of wonderful classical music,î said Barbara Erickson, Board President. ñ The Lake Placid Sinfonietta is also pleased to present recent Van Cliburn competition finalist, Di Wu on July 14.î ñ There is a history side to all of this as we reflect on the life of this great performer and become inspired by what he accomplished. The Lake Placid-North Elba Historical Society is happy to be a part of this offering,î said Board President, Peter Roland. ñ I know the documentaries will be very illuminating and we are proud to help support this eveningÍ s program which ties into the Adirondack Film SocietyÍ s mission of hosting unique films in the Adirondacks,î said Board President John Huttlinger.

PAUL SMITHS — The Paul Smiths VIC Native Species Butterfly House, featuring butterflies and moths in all stages of development, is opening on June 15. The Butterfly House is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., seven days a week throughout the summer. After Labor Day, the Butterfly House is open on weekends and by appointment, weather permitting. Admission to the VIC Butterfly House is free. Visitors can view native butterflies up close and learn about the life stages and migratory patterns of these colorful insects. Butterfly House volunteers are available to point out the species of butterflies in the house that day, provide information on the insect’s life cycle, and identify specific plants that are favored by each species. Inside the Butterfly House, there are nectar plants for food and host plants for egg-laying and caterpillar feeding. There are also touch boxes and information handouts on butterflies and moths. Outside the Butterfly House is a garden designed to attract butterflies.

Historic Saranac Lake to unveil new exhibit, ‘A Life in Hats’ SARANAC LAKE „ The Saranac Laboratory on Church Street is awash in the colorful hats of local artist Ursula Trudeau. ñ I donÍ t have enough days in the year to wear all this stuff,î laughs Mrs. Trudeau, taking a seat surrounded by her hats. She has just brought in more of her collection and Historic Saranac Lake staff are scurrying around, preparing the hats for the exhibit opening on June 28. ñ Behind every hat there is a story, and thatÍ s the fun part,î explained Historic Saranac Lake Executive Director, Amy Catania. ñ This has been a wonderful opportunity for us to get to know Ursula better.î Catania thought of the idea for the exhibit during a presentation in the John Black Room last winter. ñ Ursula was there, wearing one of her amazing hats, and the idea just came to me,î she said. ñ I thought, wouldnÍ t it be great to see UrsulaÍ s hats in one place, in this lab that was founded by her husbandÍ s grandfather, and to learn some of the stories behind them?î Trudeau holds a special place in the community as a highly accomplished artist and a strong supporter of many local institutions.

She is well known for her lovely hats, many of which are works of art in their own right. She is the widow of Dr. Frank Trudeau, whose grandfather, Dr. E. L. Trudeau, founded the Saranac Laboratory for the study of tuberculosis in 1894. Ask Ursula why she is rarely seen without a hat and her answer is simple. ñ I am sensitive to the sun,î she explains. As she has traveled around the world she has collected an array of summer and winter hats, always with an artistÍ s eye for color and style. There are hats from China and Mexico, from designers in Montreal and New York, and from hatshops closer to home, like AltmanÍ s in Saranac Lake and Where did you get that Hat? in Lake Placid. Historic Saranac Lake is grateful for UrsulaÍ s willingness to participate in the exhibit. ñ Ursula has been very generous with her time,î said Historic Saranac Lake Program Manager Libby Clark. ñ She is an amazing storyteller and has a hysterical sense of humor. The whole project has been a lot of fun.î The public is invited to an opening reception from 5 to 7 p.m. on Friday, June 28, in the John Black Room of the Saranac Laboratory, 89 Church Street, Saranac Lake.

Cuomo touts Tax-Free NY during address at SUNY Plattsburgh

By Shaun Kittle PLATTSBURGH „ Gov. Andrew Cuomo visited Plattsburgh State University College on Thursday, May 30 to tout his new ñ Tax-Free NYî program. The stop was part of a statewide tour to promote the plan, which Cuomo hopes will be signed into law before the stateÍ s legislative session ends in three weeks. If enacted, the program would create a 10-year, tax-free zone on and around SUNY campuses in Upstate New York for new businesses and their employees. ñ Tax-free means just that,î Cuomo said. ñ No business taxes, no sales tax, no property tax, no franchise fees and no income tax.î The proposal would allow employees in the tax-free zones to avoid state income tax for five years, or up to 10 years for certain income eligible individuals. Eligible tax-free zones would include up to 200,000 square feet

thing„ they didnÍ t leave because they wanted to, they left because they had to. WeÍ re chasing people away.î Three million square feet of private university space, and 20 ñ strategically locatedî state owned properties, including closed prisons such as Lyon Mountain Correctional Facility in Dannemora and Camp Gabriels in Franklin County, are also included in the proposed plan. When combined, Cuomo said Tax-Free NY zones would encompass 120 million square feet, greater than the eligible commercial space in San Francisco and Philadelphia combined. Cuomo called the proposal a ñ game changer that could change the curve and trajectory of economies around New York state.î ñ You never solve a problem that you arenÍ t willing to admit,î Cuomo said. ñ The New York State economy has been suffering for 30 years. This is one of the worst states in the nation when it comes to high taxes, and that has been read as anti-business.î If passed, Cuomo said Tax-Free NY will encourage economic growth and increase enrollment in Upstate SUNY schools. Plattsburgh State President John Ettling agreed. ñ The entire SUNY system was formed and scattered across the state of New York in anticipation of their joining partnership with the private enterprise in their communities to promote economic development and train the workforce for the future,î Ettling said. ñ If this bill is enacted, weÍ ll be that much closer to seeing the realization of that half century old dream.î

Bamboo on the Boquet Y

ears ago there was a TV commercial about hamburgers with an old woman asking the question: ñ WhereÍ s the beef”? After numerous attempts at finding some trout on the Boquet River, many anglers are now asking the question: “Where’s the fish?” I met three different guys out fly fishing this past week, and they all have the same gripe: no fish, not even a rise. All of them found some choice spots with pools, runs and riffles, but no rising fish. These guys were seasoned veterans, not rookies! If I don’t catch fish, I figure it’s just another bad day. We all have them. Today was one of them. I caught every branch and leaf that was in and around the stream. Even if there was only one lone branch in the stream, with a small twig sticking out of the water, I caught it today. I even caught my dog. I was tying on By Rich Redman a new section of tippet when my dog walked by and got caught in the line. He pulled the rod out of my grasp. What a day. He was lucky! That dog was almost shark bait! I was holding a WWII era, vintage bamboo rod. It is a classic and I wanted to try my luck with it after 60 years of storage. I was trying to break it in, not break it in half. Bamboo rods are part of history and I had to have one just to try the laid back, slow motion of bamboo. ItÍ s a grandpa thing! Two of the guys I talked with said they were going out of state to fish again. They had just returned from Massachusetts, fishing and said it was great. They were from the Schroon Lake area and love the Adirondacks but are very frustrated with the stream fishing in this area. They were catching some The Boquet River beautiful fish in Massachusetts according to their stories. The guys were going back, a 4 to 5 hour drive they didnÍ t look forward to, but said it was worth it for the great fishing. The third fly fisherman from this area is so disgusted he said he was moving to Tennessee, leaving New York for good. This guy is a New York hunting and fishing guide. He said that between the lack of ruffed grouse habitat, the poor stream fishing, and now Gov. Cuomo’s SAFE ACT, he has had it. You canÍ t make a living being a guide if there is nothing to guide to. He asked me where I was fishing on the Boquet. I told him and he said he hasn’t caught a fish in that area in six years. This is the second time I have talked to someone about this one beautiful section. The same answer: no fish! Another thing we all noticed, the lack of fishermen along the stream. Maybe it’s because they are smarter than I am. If there’s no fish, then there’s no reason to fish. I guess when I leave home to go fish, I’ll just say I’m going water whipping instead! The truth hurts sometimes! No fishermen means, no local economic inputs. Isn’t that what tourism is supposed to be about, supporting local economies? Hunters and fishermen contribute millions to support habitat and fisheries management. License fees in this state, plus the taxes we pay on guns, ammunition and fishing equipment amount to millions. Local restaurants, gas stations, and motels all benefit from hunters and fishermen who travel in search of an adventure. As a retired conservationist and I mean a real conservationist „ one who believes in the wise use of natural resources, including wildlife and forest management „ I am disturbed at the lack of natural resource management in this area. Any trout biology book or wildlife management text will be filled with page after page about how to improve a fishery or wildlife habitat by cutting trees and allowing sun to reach the earth to provide energy to young plants. Streams need young shoots of willow and dogwoods growing along the banks to help solidify the stream banks and provide vegetation that will bend over with ice flows. Having shade trees is important for first order streams that support brook trout, but second order streams can have up to 50 percent grassy banks. Grassy areas that are managed and mowed every other year, supply grasshoppers and other terrestrial bugs to the water to feed fish during the summer months. Channel width and shape (geo-morphology), channel bottom materials (cobble and stone versus sand), stream temperature and stream vegetation are all pieces of the stream ecology puzzle and all need to be in place for a quality fishery. Wetlands that are managed and have drainage access to streams supply some needed nutrients. The sun allows periphyton, algae and diatoms to grow on the cobble rock in the stream bed. Algae and diatoms feed invertebrates. Periphytons have been called the pastures of the stream. They supply food for the macrophytes; the grazing invertebrates that in turn feed the fish. Mayfly nymphs, stoneflies and caddis all feed off the diatoms and other algae. In some cases they feed off each other. The fish feed off the invertebrates, nymphs, flies, worms and other bio-diversity of the stream bottom. Nutrients are as important as stream habitat structures. We need to look at all the factors and accept the fact that we need to do something about improving the streams and floodplains for the benefit of the communities along the streams. Private landowners need to do the work on their land and government needs to deal with transportation infrastructures. Roads, culverts and narrow bridges all effect stream flows, block fish passage or cause ice jamming. Wetlands and floodplains are the emergency overflow valves that collect water during storm events. When these areas are severed from the rest of the watershed by a road, the flood waters are forced downstream, increasing velocity and volume to cause damage to someone else. Over width streams lose the ability to carry sediment. They become shallow and allow anchor ice to buildup creating ice jams. There is a reason why the term FLOOD plain is used. Using geo-morphology engineering along with and stream restoration practices, we can correct the depth, width and flow of the stream to eliminate most of the sediment and ice jamming problems. Bridges and culverts need to be designed to allow greater flows and not restrict fish and invertebrate passage. Once many of the stream flow factors are done, many of the fisheries problems will be solved. Geomorphic engineering practices along with riparian vegetation management will improve the stream for the communities and the inhabitants of the stream. We can never stop the flooding, but we can help reduce many of the manmade contributions that accentuate the flooding problems. One group of dedicated trout enthusiasts is the Trout Unlimited folks. They are serious in their approach to stream management. They try to look at all the pieces of the stream morphology puzzle and then assist with the field work to improve the stream. The Rivermede project in Keene valley is one example of the excellent work they do. The East Branch of the Ausable River restoration project sets the baseline for future projects. If you are interested in trout, trout fishing, habitat restoration and floodplains like I am, this group is for you. I need to break in that bamboo rod on a beautiful trout. I hope it will be a New York fish, but Pennsylvania and Massachusetts are both prime for fly fishing right now! By the way, there is a serious movement to boycott buying hunting licenses this coming season as a way to let the governor know how upset hunters are with the SAFE ACT. When it comes to politics, money talks! There could be a lot of non – resident hunting and fishing licenses being bought by New Yorkers this coming hunting season!

Spring’s unpredictable wildlife


he spring seasonÍ s unpredictable weather has certainly provided some unique challenges for outdoor travelers with high temperatures in the 70Í s and 80Í s and lows dropping into the 30Í s, with snow, rain and heavy winds. Fortunately, the cool weather has helped to keep the blackflies at bay. And when it didn’t, at least you could hear them coming with the noise of thousands of black flies chattering their teeth in the cold. A much more common spring sound has been the faraway thump, thump, thump of a lawnmower attempting to start up far away in the forest. The noise is not actually mechanical by nature, it is natural in nature. And the fascinating element of the odd spring sound is the sound maker. The noise is the mating call of a male ruffed grouse, which is often referred to as a partridge. In order to amplify the sound the birds seek out a ï drumming tree,Í which is usually of a long, hollow tree laying on the ground. Drumming trees may be used by generations of birds, but contrary to the long accepted theory of drumming, the male grouse does not produce the drumming noise by thumping the tree with their wings. Rather, the male birds stand upright on the log and beat their wings furiously. So furiously in fact, that the tips of their wing feathers actually break the sound barrier. But instead of just cracking a whip, their feathers crack several whips to produce the rhythmic thumping that has become as signature a sound of spring as a loonÍ s lonesome wail or a pepperÍ s pestering peep. The effort also serves to ï buff them up,Í as they can lose more than 10 percent of their body weight due to the energy expended in drumming. In addition to attracting female birds, the maleÍ s powerful beats serve to ward off potential suitors from intruding on its territory, which may be as extensive as 6 to 8 acres or larger. While the male of the species is noisy and boisterous, female grouse are even more defensive of their territory. If the hen fails to lure an intruder away by feigning an injured wing at first, she will turn and confront a threat, no matter the size. I wonder at what point in the evolutionary process did members of the wild kingdom such as grouse, the killdeer and others, first learn to feign injury, to fake, and deceive as a matter of survival? I was once attacked by a female grouse defending her brood, while walking a woodland trail with a 16-foot guideboat on my shoulders. She stood in the trail, puffed up her chest, fanned her tail and refused to let me pass. When I attempted to go around her, she pecked me in the shin, and chased after me. I was the equivalent of an elephant to an infant, yet she refused to give way. She continued hissing and faking attacks until I hopped into the truck. For travelers who prefer not to go face to tail feathers with a mother grouse, there are better things to see and do this weekend.

Historic vehicles return to the Adirondack History Center

Possibly one of the finest events in the region will be hosted in Elizabethtown, as the Adirondack History Center again hosts the Antique &

Classic Car Show to celebrate the opening of their newest exhibit: The Human Face of theAdirondacks in the Civil War. The grand opening of the exhibit will be held in conjunction with the car show on Saturday June 8, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Collectors and enthusiasts from around the region will have a collection of some of the finest vintage and restored vehicles on display. There will be a lot of ï 50Í s, ï 60Í s and 70Í s muscle cars as well as roadsters, hot rods, vintage jeeps, and pickups. Local fire departments will also have antique fire trucks on display. The event will include, food, drink, prizes and a raffle for $1,000 in gas.

Dirty waters

A recent state record brook trout taken from Silver Lake by Rick Beauchamp, provides evidence of how quickly Adirondack waters have recovered from the blight of acid rain. Of course, ï Beau,Í as he is known to his friends, is such a capable angler he could probably catch trout in a bathtub. A little more than 30 years ago, Silver Lake, (located in the southern AdirondackÍ s Silver Lake Wilderness Area) was deemed too acidic to support fish life. At the time, nearly one quarter of the AdirondackÍ s fabled trout waters were considered acidified ‘dead lakes’ as a result of pollution from coal burning power plants and other industries in the midwest. Due to the efforts of several environmental groups including the Adirondack Council, the scourge of acid precipitation has been severely curtailed. Many ï deadÍ lakes have made miraculous recoveries. Nature takes care of its own, but in New York state it has had a lot of help from the fine folks at NYS DEC who worked with sportsmanÍ s groups to monitor the ponds, and restocked them with acid tolerant species such as the Temiscamie hybrid, a cross between a domestic brook trout and a wild Temiscamie (Canadianstrain) brook trout. It is incredible to think that 30 years later, once dead lakes are now producing brook trout in the five to six pound class.

Keep our waters clean

Even with such great success stories, there is much more to do. Although our local waters are far less acidic than they have been in more than 30 years, they still need help. Lead sinkers, soda cans, beer bottles and a host of similar trash can still be found on the edge or in the water of most local waters. In a recent survey, the top 10 items that were found in waterways include cigarette filters, food wrappers, plastic bottles, plastic bags, caps/lids, plastic cups/plates/utensils, straws/stirrers, beverage cans and paper bags. Fortunately, it appears there are now fewer Styrofoam worm containers left kicking around the local ponds and riverbanks. I expect this is the result of the introduction of biodegradable worm containers. Unfortunately, there are still some slovenly anglers who believe biodegradable means it is alright to toss the containers along the riverbank. A slob is a slob, regardless of whether their trash is biodegradable or not! Joe Hackett is a guide and sportsman residing in Ray Brook. Contact him at brookside18@adelphia. net.
