At the conclusion of their commencement ceremonies June 21, Warrensburg High School graduates throw their ceremonial caps into the air and celebrate the arrival of a new phase in their lives. Photo by Kim Ladd/Lifescapes Photography WARRENSBURG — During Warrensburg High School’s commencement ceremonies June 21, the school’s 51 graduating seniors exhibited enthusiasm about delving into a new phase in their lives — and their attitude was refected in the brevity of the speeches delivered by the Class of 2013’s top students.

In her one-minute speech, Valedictorian Shelby Burkhardt spoke of how she and her classmates appreciated support through the years from teachers, friends and family. “Dream big, because you can — and well, why not,” she said. “It is time for us to venture out and push ourselves to our fullest potential.” Salutatorian Justine Monthony spoke of how her eclectic class had lately pulled together as a community, under the mentor-

ship of parents, step-parents, grandparents, guardians, adoptive parents, siblings and teachers. “Everyone in this audience is responsible in some way for the achievement of this class,” she said. Despite the brevity of the student’s speeches, however, the adults stepping up to the lectern offered plenty of advice. CONTINUED ON PAGE 27

turned her down, she recalled June 22 moments before the group’s graduation ceremonies. But Tom Walker, a teaching aide at the school, took on the job, she added. During the ceremony, Walker told the soon-to-be graduates that he had been fearful of the duties as advisor for the group of strong-willed, outspoken in-

dividuals — ninth-graders at the time. “I was terrified,” he said. But Walker’s tenure in the post proved to be a positive one — a profound learning experience not only for the students but for him, he continued. CONTINUED ON PAGE 29

BOLTON — In celebration of its 25th anniversary, the Lake George Land Conservancy is hosting a Hike-A-Thon on July 5, the first of its kind for Lake George. The Hike-A-Thon will feature nine simultaneous hikes and events at eight locations around Lake George and engage hundreds of participants of all ages. Participation is free. Everyone who pre-registers will receive an event T-shirt. To document the event, aerial photographs will be taken. Copies of the photos will be made available for purchase. Each hike or gathering is scheduled to match the helicopter’s flight path, from Bolton to Ticonderoga on the west side, then down the east coast to Lake George and back up to Bolton on the west. For details on each hike, see: The trails vary in length and difficulty. For those who are unable to hike or would like a less-intensive activity, a garden party is planned for Peggy’s Point, an accessible waterfront park in Hague.

Adirondack Journal Editorial


Celebrating the rich Free Community Newspaper history of our region T


arren County, as well as the entire Adirondacks, is blessed with pristine waterways, looming mountains, and lush woodlands. For hundreds of years, these natural attributes have attracted people to put down roots here — at first the Native Americans, followed by colonial settlers, and now, those who seek challenge, inspiration or tranquility in nature. The Adirondack region’s rich resources and strategic natural location prompted battles between British and colonial Americans against the French and their Native American allies, with the domination of the entire Hudson Valley in balance. The area played a key role in American history. Settlers of this fertile, productive land were industrious, devising ways to develop the natural resources as they carved out a living for their families in this wild territory. In 1783, the lower Adirondacks region was named Washington County, the first county in the new nation to be named to honor the Revolutionary War hero George Washington. Thirty years later, Warren County was carved out of the regional municipality — officially founded March 12, 1813. The new entity was named after Revolutionary War hero General Joseph Warren, a physician and American patriot who served as president of the Massachusetts Provincial Congress. Joseph Warren, fighting alongside footsoldiers despite his rank, died in the Battle of Bunker Hill at age 34. In the decades that followed, more and more people were attracted to the region for its remarkable attributes. The resourcefulness and resilience of these homesteaders was remarkable, as they dealt with challenges that nearly defy our comprehension today. Entrepreneurs utilized the area’s vast natural resources — harnessing waterpower, harvesting timber, and mining minerals — founding industries that were formative in shaping the new nation. Over the next 200 years, the area produced innovators in the arts and sciences and visionary leaders in politics and industry — who exerted substantial impact on society. This year, area residents have been celebrating the bicentennial of Warren County. At 6 p.m. March 12, church bells rang out around the county in honor of the 200th anniversary. This next week, the town of Warrensburg will be hosting a festive event on July 4 to observe both the county and the town’s bicentennial. On June 12, county leaders gathered in the old County Courthouse in Lake George, holding a ceremonial meeting that celebrated the rich, influential history of Warren County. Through these events, we are not only hailing the political demarcation of our county, but paying tribute to the ingenuity, vision and resourcefulness of all those who shaped our region during those 200 years. The staff of Denton Publications, committed to our vital role in area communities, congratulate those who have planned these events — municipal historians and volunteers throughout the county — all of whom were vital in celebrating the attributes of people who were formative in our area’s history. „

Turning Back the Pages By Jean Hadden 100 Years Ago - June-July, 1913 Madness attack prompts death

Mrs. Truman Waters of Chestertown, at 11 o’clock a.m. July 2, 1913, while temperately insane, shot herself three times with a 38-calibre revolver inflicting wounds which caused her death at 7 o’clock the next morning in Glens Falls Hospital, where she was taken after the shooting. Mrs. Waters was alone in her apartment over the I.L. Prouty grain store and her husband was in the store below when the shooting occurred. Of the three shots fired one entered the body just below the heart, the second penetrated the abdomen and the third lodged in one of the woman’s arms. Mr. Waters, who is just recovering from a long and severe illness, had been gone from the rooms only a short time when he heard the shots. Rushing up stairs he found his wife lying in a pool of blood on the bedroom floor. She was still conscious and was suffering severely from the pain of her wounds. Dr. E.L. Stafford and Dr. George Bibby came to her aid and she was taken to the hospital in Frank Parker’s automobile stage. Mrs. Waters, 45, has for a number of years been afflicted with periodical attacks of insanity. There has been several suicides in her family, her grandmother having drowned herself and an uncle ending his life by cutting his throat. About three years ago Mrs. Waters left her home at about 9 p.m. and after an all-night search by her husband and many citizens of Chestertown, was found near French Mountain, having walked the entire distance. She is only survived by her husband, having had no children.

Joy over catch nearly kills doctor

Dr. George Vanderpool, an Albany dentist, experienced a narrow escape from being drowned in Lake George near Elizabeth Island in Kattskill Bay, when he plunged his foot through the bottom of his rowboat in the excite-

ment of hauling a large pickerel into the craft. Water rushed into the boat and the doctor and another Albanian worked the oars hard to reach the shore. When within a few feet of the island, Allen Liddell of Glens Falls, went to the rescue and took the physician out of the boat. The other occupant then pumped the oars harder and succeeded in reaching shore before the boat sank.

Man found guilty of stabbing wife

The trial of George — a Glens Falls man facing a charge of first-degree assault in the stabbing of his wife, Lizzie, last fall in Glens Falls — began June 17, 1913 in Lake George. The accused pleaded innocent and attempted to establish an alibi, but was unsuccessful. The jury brought in a verdict of Guilty. Judge Raley imposed a sentence of not more than six years and two months nor less than four years at hard labor in Clinton Prison. (Note: This story was detailed in this column in the Dec. 29, 2012 Adirondack Journal. George became enraged when Lizzie, his wife of 21 years, objected to his beating their 18-year-old daughter and he stabbed his wife six times while they argued in the street. He then fled and hid at his mother’s house in Fort Edward.)

One fatal step

Monty H. Gibson, formerly a resident of Hudson Falls and well known as a contractor, died the afternoon of July 28, 1913 at Glens Falls Hospital from injuries he sustained June 6 when he fell from the ground floor to the basement of the garage which he was building for the Adirondack Motor Co.

Wedding bells

William McElroy and Miss Huldah Eldridge were married June 24, 1913 at the home of the bride’s parents at Indian Lake. They are staying for the present time at the home of the groom’s father, J.H. McElroy on Horicon Avenue, Warrensburgh. The marriage of Miss Gabrielle Heffron — daughter of John Heffron, formerly of Warrensburgh, now of 265 Glen Street, Glens Falls and

Quilters aid little tornado victims

The Thurman Quilting group members express their thanks to Betty Billow for her recent donation of fabric — which was shared among the group members. Betty acquired the fabric from her father Bob Mosher Sr. who recently passed away. Bob was an exceptional quilter, and Betty knew the members of the group would make good use of the fabric. The group found a fitting use for this fabric. A few days after the tornado hit Oklahoma, Fons & Porter, a quilting supplies company, asked quilters to make lap robes, baby quilts and pillow cases for children of Moore who had endured the violent tornado and were in need of bedclothes to cuddle up in and feel safe. Thurmanite Carol Rounds saw this mention of the Quilts for Kids project on the company’s website, and she passed on the information to the other club members, and they decided to join the cause and craft the requested items. On June 16 the women of the Thurman Quilt Club brought the quilts they made and readied them to ship off to the “Quilts for Kids” headquarters in Pennsylvania. Our Hats off to all you amazing Thurmanites! The Thurman Quilting group holds their meetings every Monday from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Thurman Town Hall, and people are welcome to join in. Bring your knitting, sewing, or quilting projects and make some new friends. For more information, contact Myra at 623-2633.

Fireworks featured at concert

Summer starts off with a bang — and a glorious aerial display — July 1 with the Monday Night Concert in the Park and fireworks, free to all. The concert starts at 7 p.m. rain or shine under cover at Veterans’ Memorial Field, and the fireworks are to occur at dusk. This and many other fun events will happen every Monday in July and August. Featured for the July 1 concert are Hoddy Ovitt & the Warren County Ramblers. So put on your dancing shoes, and come on by to join your friends and neighbors! Accompanying the concert is an informal market featuring items from local artisans, gardeners and vendors. Light refreshments will be served by local groups. Thurman residents interested in selling at the Monday Night Market should know that set up time for the Market will be 6:30 p.m. Call the Thurman own Hall between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. at 623-9649 to reserve an 8’ x 8’ space.

Over the fence

As the warmer months approach, please remember to check in on our senior neighbors to make sure they are staying well hydrated — that is, drinking enough water. I received a call this week from a reader who was dis-heartened by the logging that took place alongside Crazy Creek. This reader is concerned with the erosion and drying up of the creek due to the amount of trees that were removed. The reader also

Hugh S. Lavery, son of Samuel Lavery, a prominent young lawyer — took place June 25, 1913 at St. Mary’s Church, Glens Falls. William Wallace of Warrensburgh, and Miss Winifred Bly, a former resident, were married the afternoon of June 28, 1913 at Schroon Lake where the bride has lived for some time with her mother, Mrs. Etta Bly. The young couple will camp during the summer on the shore of Schroon Lake. Walter H. Pasco, son of Delbert Pasco, and Miss Elizabeth Herrick, daughter of Halsey Herrick, were married by the Rev. G.H. Purdy at the Church of the Holy Cross, in Warrensburgh, the morning of July 3, 1913 at 7:30 a.m. They left soon after on their honeymoon for an automobile trip through the Adirondacks. (Note - Elizabeth Herrick was the first wife of Walter Pasco. After she died, he married Helen Brennon.)

Music Hall comedy presented

The King Amusement Co. will present “Sis Perkins,” a comedy in four acts at Music Hall, Warrensburgh on Monday evening, June 30, 1913. The play is a story of honesty, virtue, love and friendship. Two hours of solid fun! Tickets are 35 cents, 25 cents and 15 cents for children.

Set for the season

Louise Homer, the popular New York Opera singer, known to the public as “Madame Homer,” has leased the summer home of Mrs. Mary F. Paine, on the Bolton Road for the summer season. The Paine house is located on the property adjoining the Shepard home. (Note: Louise Dilworth Beatty was married to composer Sidney Homer and she was called ñ the greatest contralto the Metropolitan Opera ever had.”)

Chester House’s summer guests

The popularity of the Chester House, with its old mahogany and well-kept antiques under the direction of Proprietor Harry S. Downs, is attested to by the arrival of dozens of autos each day, most of which are filled with tourists who linger in the neat little village of Chestertown. In the cool of the evening the front porch is well

Adk. Museum: a memorable visit

One of the most beautiful and pleasurable times of the year is here now, and as you know, it doesn’t last very long! An interesting and fulfilling activity for your family is visiting Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake. The Adirondack Museum currently has a special exhibit titled “Great Wilderness, Great Expectations” with notable paintings on display. The exhibit, which continues through Oct. 13, features works from the museum’s permanent collection showing the Adirondack landscape over more than two centuries. It highlights rarely or never-before seen artists’ sketchbooks, plus stunning examples of Adirondack photography, including rare large-format 19th century albumen prints by Seneca Ray Stoddard. Also featured are some new acquisitions including a painting by William Trost Richards and photographs by Nathan Farb. Since the early 1800s, images of the Adirondack landscape have helped shape the American relationship to wilderness and nature. This exhibit will feature more than 50 works — some never shown before — from the Adirondack Museum’s permanent collection and explore the many ways the region was portrayed by artists, photographers and writers from the 19th century to the present era. The museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. from late May to mid-October. So pack a lunch and the kids into the car and continue their education — just because school is out for the summer doesn’t mean the learning stops!

Richards Library now open again

Richards Library is open once again after a brief break for construction of the new wing. The Library’s public computers are not up yet, but will be soon. Those who have books on hold, may stop in and pick them up. The Library is open 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays.

Pet charity seeks donations, help

The Pumpkin Fund has a mission is to assist responsible pet owners with unexpected large veterinary bills — and during the last month, rescue efforts. The organization’s veterinarian bills have thus increased recently, straining their finances. So The Pumpkin Fund is now seeking donations and any and

filled with permanent summer guests. In other news, Mr. and Mrs. C. Albert Jacob of West End Avenue, New York City, have opened their well-appointed summer house on Loon Lake known as “Bonnie Belle Farm” which is always filled with guests. D.J. Murphy opened his new hotel on Friends Lake, Sunday, June 15, 1913 and started out the season with 20 boarders.

News roundabout

The much-needed rain came Sunday night, June 15, 1913, with thunder and lightening. It settled the dust, which was quite a relief. In comparison, the summer of 1912 was very cold and wet. The first baseball game of the season was played on the home grounds Saturday afternoon, June 14, 1913 when our Warrensburgh boys easily won from the “Indians” of Indian Lake. When the game was done, the score was 27 to 11 in favor of the home team. A son was born July 3, 1913 to Mrs. William Hastings, at their home on Horicon Avenue, Warrensburgh. W.W. Pasco of North Thurman traded his iron gray mare with Noble Armstrong of Johnsburgh for a pair of matched gray horses. L.M. Carpenter of Adirondack has purchased a span of black horses from Scott Pritchard of Pottersville. A valuable horse owned by the Galusha brothers of Johnsburgh broke a leg and had to be killed. Charles Henry Thomson, 56, a former resident of Chestertown, died June 18, 1913 at his home in Glens Falls. Arthur Wells spent Sunday with his folks in Igerna. Roland Smith is sawing wood for the people of Wevertown with a power saw run by a gasoline engine. Horace Hack has finished plastering his new house in Johnsburgh. Beaver board is rapidly coming into use as a substitute for lathe and plaster in covering house walls and ceilings.

Bolton Central grads bask in community’s pride By Thom Randall BOLTON LANDING — Following a decades-long tradition in local commencement exercises, the 23 Bolton High School graduates walked one-by-one from the stage into the audience and gave their respective parents a long-stemmed rose, embraced them, and posed for photos. This gesture, practiced for as long as anyone can remember, not only exemplifies the strong bond not only between the students and their parents, but between the students, the school faculty and staff — and members of the community as well. The audience included not only the students’ relatives and friends, but local residents who attend graduation ceremonies annually to give the students a memorable send-off for the new chapter in their lives. This audience, packing the BCS auditorium, chattered and applauded at photos, projected onto a screen, of the graduates as youngsters — in a video presentation that tracked most all of them, frolicking together at Koala-T Preschool then evolving through each grade of the primary, middle and high school phases.

BCS teachers praised

Salutatorian Emma LeMaire spoke of this shared community bond as well as the students’ experiences together through the years. “When I moved here in fifth grade, I thought this school was so strange because of its (small) size and how everyone seemed to be so close,” she said. “But over the years I have grown to love it for that very reason. We get to have an experience that students from other schools don’t have — we have the opportunity to get close to our teachers and really know their personalities.” LeMaire talked of Math and Physics teacher Steven Beuerman and his continuing encouragement; History teacher Paul Weick and his trivia games; English teacher Michael Leone and his student skits; Science Instructor John Gaddy and his subject knowledge; and Art Teacher Aimee Sawyer and her patience. “This school has truly proven to be a special place,” she said.

BCS students ‘too cool for school’

With humor, Valedictorian William Smith talked about the

class of 2013’s character and diversity. “We have always been ‘too cool for school,’” he said, mentioning the group’s diversity. He added that Gaddy advised students to travel and experience different cultures. Expressing the strong local community bond, Smith talked about the late Tracy French, mother of classmate Dustin, and how she had been a good friend to many and would be proud of the graduates. “Tracy has been an unbelievable influence on my life — She is truly one of the nicest human beings I’ve ever known,” he said. Smith’s reflections about French, who died in 2012 at age 46, prompted substantial applause. The Class of 2013 was soon facing big changes, continued Smith, who is headed for University of Central Florida this

fall to study Business. “We will be meeting new people, learning new ways of life and be exposed to many different ways of thinking and expression,” he said. “Whatever the adjustments that need to be made, we are indeed all ready for them due to the mentoring of our loved ones.” Student Hunter Brown, who is attending SUNY Adirondack this fall, led the Pledge of Allegiance. The seniors sang “Don’t Stop Believing,” penned by rock group Journey. The video presentation included tweets of advice from the graduates to each other, like “You are only limited by your mindset,” and “Never give up on your dreams.” BCS Superintendent Ray Ciccarelli, whose son Carl was among the graduates, offered advice to the Class of 2013. “Success is not defined by a single event, but preceded by a lot of hard work — the continuation of the things you’ve been doing here at Bolton Central day-to-day,” he said.

Lake George graduates hail their community By Thom Randall LAKE GEORGE — Waiting to lead a procession of faculty members into the gymnasium for commencement ceremonies, Lake George Superintendent of Schools Patrick Dee looked down the hallway at the seniors garbed in satin graduation robes. “The Class of 2013 is a very cohesive, hard-working, high-performing group of students, and we’ll miss them,” he said. Not only was the class academically outstanding and community oriented, he said, but several of the class members were on the team that proved their character and determination in winning the Class C championship in basketball. Also, a team of Lake George students, including several seniors, won a national award from the Future Business Leaders of America, he said. “We are all so proud of their accomplishments,” he said. Soon after, top honors students at Lake George offered their thoughts during the ceremony. Mason Gentner and Amber Ruther, in their speeches, focused on the future. “The challenges we’ll face after today will determine our character and prosperity,” Gentner said. “Have the confidence to think for yourself and the audacity to express your ideas no matter how original. Don’t be afraid to take risks and question methods.” Ruther said that her fellow graduates could apply the problem solving skills they acquired in school to solve society’s prevailing problems including violence, corruption and poverty. “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world,” she said, quoting Margaret Mead. “We can take our time and talents to mold the world as we choose — all it takes is dedication.” Aftab Bhatti and Hahnah Saroff spoke on the topic “Transitions.” Bhatti said one’s route through life was achieved one small step at a time. “Like a staircase, use your past to help you get to the future,” he said. Saroff said her life in the past 17 years had revolved around Lake George Central. “I spent more time at school than in my own house,” she said. “The last four years laid the foundations that will enable us to make the most of our lives, establishing ourselves as thinking, competent, influential members of society,” she said. Mackenzie Baertschi and Emma Underwood spoke about the school community and area citizens. As an athlete, she recalled the support from not only the faculty and staff, but from the citizens of Lake George, as well as surrounding communities. “What better town is there to live in?” she asked. Class Vice President Tyler Prime presented a gift to Vicky Greene. “She’s always been a great source of guidance and knowledge — and she’s been a great friend,” he said. He recalled the campaign to win the state boys basketball championship. “The basketball team’s season touched the whole county and brought us all together,” he said. As he offered advice to the graduates, Dee also referred to entire class as well as the determined season-long effort of the boys basketball team that concluded in the New York State Class C championship. “Find your passion, and give it your best effort,” he said. “Success comes to those who never quit — and this is a group of stu-




dents who never quit!” Senior Robert Leombruno announced that the class charitable gift would go to Double H Hole in the Woods Ranch. “There are those who will never experience the feeling of walking on this stage and receiving a diploma,” he said, referring to the Ranch’s young campers who face life-threatening illnesses. Principal Fran Cocozza, who annually offers a surprise presentation at graduation ceremonies, employed his five children to exemplify stages of develop-

ment, based on the Sound of Music theme song, “Do-Re-Mi.” At prior ceremonies, Cocozza plunged from a gym wall, sang a rap song with a student and had a group of Lake Georgians, from age five through senior years, offer the graduates advice. In concluding his presentation, Cocozza borrowed a theme from the Sound of Music. “Wherever you go and whatever you do, never forget where you’ve been,” he said. “Remember your roots, past, community and school.”

Senate confirms appointments for APA, ORDA By Andy Flynn

Work continues on Dean Farm trail By Andy Flynn STONY CREEK — Town employees recently began their second season of construction on the 1.3-mile wheelchair-accessible trail at the Dean Homestead Museum. Just south of Thurman, the town of Stony Creek is located along the 62-mile First Wilderness Heritage Corridor – featuring the Hudson River and Saratoga & North Creek Railway. Warren County planners have been helping Corridor communities with infrastructure projects in the hopes of attracting tourists along the rail line. One project is the Dean Homestead trail system. “The train runs along the river through town here,” said Stony Creek Town Supervisor Frank Thomas. “We just need to link our center here with the train, and that’s part of the First Wilderness Heritage Corridor. And hopefully when it’s all done there will be enough attractions, so it will really be something for people to come to and anticipate being here.” In the 1990s, about 10 acres of the old Dean farm on the west side of Murray Road (the creek side) was deeded to the Stony Creek Historical Association for a museum, and 217 acres on the east side of the road was deeded to the SUNY-ESF Foundation. Officially called the Francis Dean Farm Heritage Trails, town

leaders have been working on the trail system since 2008. Thanks to an application filed by Warren County in 2010, the town secured state grant money for the project — a 50-50 matching grant, with the town and state each contributing $220,000. Phase 1 is the establishment of a 1.3-mile wheelchair trail around the museum. Construction began on Phase 1 of the project in 2012 and is continuing this summer. The ADA-compliant trail system, located on the Stony Creek side of the Murray Road, should be completed by the fall. The wheelchair-accessible trail leads visitors through open meadows and woodlands and ends at an overlook on Stony Creek. The town recently hired a graphic designer to create a collection of 11 interpretive signs describing the flora and fauna of the property, and they should be complete by the end of the year. “I guess I would have to give credit to the Department of Environmental Conservation for that,” Thomas said. “Part of this money that the town is spending on these signs was an environmental betterment project in which the town and the department came to an agreement as part of a settlement for a fuel tank violation. They were willing to do something like that. We had to pay the fine anyway.” Phase 2 will feature about 4 miles of trails on the east side of Murray Road and should begin in 2014.



The Senate confirmation of ORDA appointments spelled good news for North Creek, home of the ORDA-operated Gore Mountain Ski Center. Robert Francis Flacke, who has been serving as the Warren County representative on the ORDA Board, was reappointed. And Jill Ruhm Broderick, owner of Broderick Real Estate in North Creek, was appointed to the Board for the first time. In addition, J. Patrick Barrett will continue serving as ORDA Chair. He is chairman and CEO of CARPAT Investments, a private investment company. Previously, he was chairman and CEO of Avis.

ALBANY — Gov. Andrew Cuomo last week announced the New York Senate’s confirmation of his appointments to a number of state agencies and authorities, including the Adirondack Park Agency and Olympic Regional Development Authority. On June 19, he announced that Leilani Crafts Ulrich will serve a second term as the APA chairwoman. Ulrich, of Old Forge, was first appointed to the APA Board in 2004. She chaired the Board’s Regulatory Programs and Park Ecology committees before being nominated as the Agency’s first chairwoman by Gov. Cuomo in November of 2011. Ulrich is a dedicated advocate for environmental issues, having previously studied responses to climate change, energy conservation and forestry management practices. She is a past Board member of the Adirondack Community Housing Trust and served on the NYS delegation to the four-state Northern Forest Center’s Sustainable Economies Initiative. On June 20, Cuomo announced Senate confirmation of four other APA commissioners. The terms of William Thomas, of North Creek, and Arthur Lussi, of Lake Placid, were renewed. And the APA will welcome two new commissioners: Daniel Wilt, a businessman from Lake Pleasant, who will replace Frank Mezzano, of Speculator; and Karen Feldman, a lawyer from Hudson who will replace Cecil Wray, of New York City, for an out-of-park seat.

Bicentennial events this week

French & Indian War re-enactors, Legionnaires and a bagpiper lead Warren County officials into the Old County Courthouse in Lake George for the signature celebration of the county’s Bicentennial held June 12 in Lake George Village, where local government matters were conducted for about 150 years. More bicentennial events will be held throughout the county this summer, including a few next week. A few towns will be dressing up their Independence Day events with a bicentennial flare. The town of Warrensburg — which is also celebrating its own bicentennial in 2013 — will be hosting a July 4 party with a parade, music, vendors, games and more starting at 11 a.m. The town of Johnsburg is highlighting the bicentennial during its Independence Day celebration on Saturday, July 6 with a parade down Main Street in North Creek starting at 11 a.m. and a festival at the Ski Bowl Park starting at noon. And the town of Chester will mark the bicentennial on July 6 with its annual Summerfest event starting at noon in Chestertown. Photo by Thom Randall

WCS graduation from page 1

Lawson: ‘Ditch those illusions’

School Superintendent Tim Lawson, delivering his last graduation speech at WCS before he retires in December, offered his light-hearted observations: “Life is not fair, get used to it;”.....”The world won’t care about your self esteem” (but people will value your accomplishments); ...”You will not make $40,000 per year right out of high school” (the executive job must be earned); “... If you think your teachers were tough wait until you get a boss;” ... “Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity;” ...and: “If you mess up, it’s not you parents’ fault — so don’t whine about your mistakes, learn from them.” He also urged them to take responsibility, over their lifetimes, for their own continued intellectual, professional and civic growth. “Think of a high school diploma as a “license for learning, to be renewed continuously,” he said.

D.A. Hogan offers her advice

Keynote speaker Kate Hogan, Warren County District Attorney, said that through the first 18 years or so of their lives, the soon-to-be graduates had parents, teachers and the state telling them what to do. “Now, you’ll be making the choices,” she said, offered suggestions for how they could experience fulfilling lives: • Keep an open mind about people, issues, ideas and interests; • Work hard and follow your passion; •Be kind and maintain a positive attitude — the way you treat people matters; and •Never compromise your integrity. “It’s your beginning, your choices, your direction, your effort — Make the most of it,” Hogan said. High Honor student Beecher Baker also talked about the transition into adult life, with graduates becoming independent, selfsufficient and responsible. “After tonight, the decisions in our lives are solely up to us,”

Sale, reading at Creekers’ library

Every Saturday morning through the summer, the library will be holding its book and bake sale from 9 a.m. until noon at the old Methodist church next door to the library. The Stony Creek Library’s summer reading program for children begins Tuesday, July 9 from 1-2 p.m. This year’s program, “Dig into Reading,” will offer children adventures in rockhounding. Participants will be reading about studying, finding, classifying and polishing rocks they find in Stony Creek. Top summer readers will also receive prizes. This program is partially supported by a state library grant.

Community church service

The Stony Creek Community Church holds worship services weekly at 10 a.m. Sundays in the Stony Creek firehouse, 42 Harrisburg Road. Free breakfasts are served after the services. Bible Study & Prayer Sessions are held Wednesdays at 6 p.m. For details on church programs, call Pastor Tony Lomenzo at 696-6375.

July 4 fest set for Stony Creek

The Town of Stony Creek is hosting a Fourth of July Celebra-

he said. “This may seem daunting; but to me knowing that the direction of my life lies in my hands, is very liberating.” The school chorus and Seniors involved in the school’s 2013 musical “Grease” sang “We Go Together” from the production. The school’s choruses and Mastersingers, directed by James Corriveau, sang a medley as a prelude to the ceremony as well as a selection midway through the event. Following tradition, Corriveau offered a coda of ragtime on the piano as the last graduate exited the gym.

Duell: unplug and embrace reality

Principal Doug Duell noted how technologically savvy the graduates were, with the many new ways to access and share information resulting from the “electronic tsunami” taking place in society. However, Duell advised that in order to achieve true fulfilment, it was necessary to balance real life with the virtual world. He urged the students to engage in face-to-face connections, rather than merely rely on Facebook updates, texting and tweeting. “After all, you have been given a real life to live,” he said, noting how Warrensburg’s bicentennial in 2013 serves as a reminder that community life was vibrant for centuries before the technology age. “Our community continues to enjoy the kind of civic motivation that is not found in a screen,” he said, calling for the seniors to contribute positively to their community. “Be an innovator and a problem solver — think with other people instead of just ‘Googling’ it,” he added. ‘Be with real people to investigate ‘greener’ ways, more equitable ways — human ways.” Duell also urged them to be selfless and caring, and attend to the needs of others. “Strive to create stable and vibrant communities through volunteerism,” he said. These real connections are what make life meaningful and fulfilling, Duell concluded. “May we know when to pull out the ear buds or look up from our iPhones and hold on to what is real,” he said. “Be sure that you make it a great life — because the choice is always yours.” tion picnic from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the town park and pavilion off Harrisburg Road. Music is to be provided by the band Roadhouse. Food and children’s activities are to be offered for local folks. There’s no charge to participate. Bring a lawn chair and come and join your fellow residents of Stony Creek and celebrate Independence Day. Earlier in the week on Tuesday July 2, there’s a free concert in the park at 7 p.m. featuring the incredible Randy Rollman and friends.

WCKM, WCQL win top awards

BOLTON LANDING — Two Queensbury-based radio stations have earned three awards from the New York State Broadcasters Association. The honor was granted June 24 at the association’s annual banquet held at The Sagamore Hotel in Bolton Landing. Competing against stations across the state, WCKM-FM was judged to have the most outstanding public service campaign — for cancer services — and most outstanding sportscast, awarded for their (High School Sports Scoreboard. WCQL-FM won for most Outstanding Radio Commercial for new student housing at SUNY Adirondack. Broadcaster of the Year award honors went to Seth Meyers of Saturday Night Live. Congressman Peter King was named New Yorker of the Year for his work on the Superstorm Sandy relief effort.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Our government is corrupt

To the Editor: Thank God we live in a republic with a constitution which is the envy of the world — with its 27 amendments, the first 10 to protect the people. Today our republic is in decline with the most corrupt administration in our history. We have lost respect around the world. Consider the corrupt U.S. Homeland Security headed up by Secretary Jane Napolitano. Her agency released over 3,000 murderers, rapists and common criminals. Also, the U.S. Department of Justice, with its widespread corruption under Attorney General Eric Holder. You can’t believe anything he says — he was held in contempt of Congress. And the State Department — there’s corruption under Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, with lies and deceit concerning the Benghazi terrorist attack. Four Americans died — “What difference does it make, said Clinton. Then there’s the Internal Revenue Service corruption — and all its head honchos. The agency has the dubious honor of being an American terrorist organization. The U.S. Department of Labor — another corrupt organization run by labor unions. There’s no balance in their decisions — Corporations leave our country. All the adminstration’s department heads have caught the Hillary Clinton disease — “Can’t Remember, Don’t know, Don’t recall.” Remember, in a court of law in Arkansas, Hillary Clinton couldn’t remember her own name. Common sense tells me they are all a corrupt bunch of liars. No one has been held responsible for these crimes against the American people. No one fired, no one goes to prison. Some are promoted, others are on paid leave. If you or I committed these crimes we would spend time in jail. The First Amendment with Freedom of Religion, Speech and the Press, are under attack, especially the press. The Second Amendment, with the right to bear arms, is under attack. Tyrants control the press and disarm the people. President Truman said it like it is. If you were an S.O.B., he said so. Truman, who had a high school education and was a soldier and Congressman, said “The buck stops here on my desk.” I like to say it like Truman. Obama can’t find his desk, but he can find his golf clubs. I voted for Truman. Thomas Paine said the duty of a patriot is to protect his country from its government. Good advice 200 years ago, and it’s good advice today. Hugh Sonner Sr., Corinth

Sharing a light-hearted moment prior to graduation ceremonies June 22 are North Warren seniors (left to right): Emily Moore, Mackenzie Meyer, Laura Tennyson, and Clarissa Deffenbach.

North Warren 11th graders (from left): Savannah Howe, Hannah Tomaszewski and Alessandra Pratt talk with school counselor Mike Terrio about their future plans prior to graduating Saturday June 22 with the Class of 2013. The three said they sought to graduate a year early — after completing all required credits — so they could delve into their respective studies and careers.

North Warren grads from page 1

“Mentoring you through high school proved to be magical,” he said in his speech that exceeded 20 minutes. In his presentation, Walker advised the students to step out of their comfort zone, serve others, never give up, and not to quit acquiring knowledge. “Wisdom is knowing what you don’t know,” he said. “Every destination is but a doorway to another.”

Three students graduate early

This class, labeled as “different” by school authorities, indisputably earned the title in the commencement rites, as three juniors graduated with the group — Alessandra Pratt, Hannah Tomaszewski, and Savannah Howe — after each one had earned enough credits to do so. Savannah, an equestrian who is headed for SUNY Cobleskill and plans to become a farrier, talked of why she wanted to exit North Warren early. “I wanted to get a head start in life and ‘go for it,’” she said. Hannah also revealed her motive. She’s off to Austin’s School of Spa Technology in Albany this fall. “Why not get ahead and move forward,” she said. Alessandra is headed for Clarkson University this fall, enrolled in their Early Admissions program for outstanding high

schoolers who’ve completed 11th grade. She plans to major in biomedical engineering. “I want to help people in some way,” she said, noting that she would enjoy helping create new vaccines or aid in developing cures for illnesses or designing new prosthetics. “I want to be part of a team that improves peoples’ lives — and give them new hope.”

Van Nispen seeks medical career

Also pursuing studies in the medical field is North Warren Valedictorian Christiaan van Nispen, enrolled in George Washington University. His goal is to be a physician practicing emergency medicine. In his speech, van Nispen urged his classmates not to sit back and let things happen to them, but to go out — putting any fear aside — and make them happen. “Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work,” he said, quoting Thomas Edison. “Seize the day!” Several members of the Class of 2013, he said, were already doing so. Three students had completed the advanced New Visions Health Career program in 2013. Another had worked as an intern in the Warren County District Attorney’s office. Yet another student, a star athlete, had been named a top delegate in the Model of American States program and was now ready to pursue studies in International Relations. “I encourage all of you, regardless of your home life, or aca-

demic history to this point, or any other condition, to work hard,” he said. “‘Happen’ to the world.”

Family ties are most important

Van Nispen cautioned his classmates, however, to balance their career aspirations with a fulfilling family life — which he said was more important than anything else. “Your family is the one thing that will never desert you,” he said. The Valedictorian also urged them to live their lives with integrity and to resist peer pressure. “Live your life honestly, live within your means, and do not follow someone else’s path,” he said. “Make a difference, make no excuses, and do not forget the people that you meet along the way.”

Blaze your own trail in life

Salutatorian Ryan Olson challenged his classmates to pursue their passions. He said that his 10 years of being a dancer — working to perfect his technique — had helped develop his mental and physical strength. He noted the diversity of interests among his fellow graduates, and urged them to likewise follow their individual dreams. “Everyone in the Class of 2013 is unique, different and has the ability to challenge all stereotypes and social norms like I did — and everyone here can make a difference in the world,” he said. “Go for it — with anything you do — never settle,” he said.
