Recreation sites receive state funds By Keith Lobdell

ALBANY „ Several local recreation sites will be receiving funding to support outdoor recreation improvement projects over the summer, according to the office of Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Cuomo announced projects will continue to improve recreation areas located on public lands, including campgrounds, day use areas, trails and boat launches. The Second Pond Boat Launch site in Franklin County will receive $1.4 million for a boat launch and parking area reconstruction project, while the Upper Saranac Lake Boat Launch will be part of a $450,000 reconstruction project for the launch.

The Lake Colby Environmental Education Camp is receiving $200,000 for the construction of a First Aid cabin, while the Valcour Island Primitive Area is receiving $350,000 for rehabilitation work on the lighthouse roof and Camp Cayuga-Scaroon Campground will receive $250,000 for the development of primitive camping areas. Also awarded was $450,00 to the Putnam Pond Campground for repaving of roads and $200,000 to the Peru Dock Boat Launch for erosion repairs as well as a ramp extension. ñ Improving the infrastructure of New YorkÍ s outdoor recreation hot spots will help spur economic development and job creation, boost tourism and strengthen regional economies,î Cuomo said in a release. ñ This funding,

an important component of our New York Works program, will help upgrade and expand recreation prospects across the state and allow even more visitors to take advantage of the tremendous natural resources New York has to offer.î Among the projects are those which will facilitate public access to the former Finch lands along the Hudson River between Newcomb and Indian Lake this summer and into the Essex Chain of Lakes this fall. These facilities include designated parking areas, signs and kiosks that will assist visitors to these historic lands. These projects will make it easier for residents and tourists to access the 7,200 acres of Forest Preserve lands that will be open to the public for the first time in 100 years.

The annual Independence Day celebration, parade and fireworks will start with parade lineup at 4:30 p.m. on Cummins Road on Wednesday, July 4. The parade starts at 5 p.m. and turns left onto Main Street and ends at High Peaks Resort, with review booths at Select SothebyÍ s International Realty and at MidÍ s Park on Main Street.

Heritage Day set in Lk. Placid LAKE PLACID „ The Lake Placid-North Elba Historical SocietyÍ s annual Heritage Day will be held on Saturday July 13, at The History Museum, 242 Station Street, in Lake Placid. As part of that event former Adirondack Museum curator and local expert Ted Comstock will be available from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. to provide an appraisal of antiques and collectibles and perhaps “fill in the blanks” for those unsure of the age and origin of their objects. Cost for the appraisals will be $5 per item, with three items for $12. Ted Comstock generously donates his time and expertise for this event, so 100 percent of the proceeds benefit operations at The History Museum. The last time this was done over 50 objects were appraised, ranging from a childrenÍ s miniature tea set to a late 19th century solo canoe. Items that can be appraised include furniture, china, glass and RW KHU KRP H G FRU FDP S LW HP V VX FK DV SDFNbaskets, fishing tackle and snowshoes; photographs, books, prints and paintings. Please, no

stamps, coins, or jewelry. ñ The last Antique Appraisal Day was a great eventî , said Nancy Lynch, a member of the Lake Placid-North Elba Historical Society. ñ All proceeds from the event support operation of the museum, and it was fascinating to observe the expertise and knowledge of Ted Comstock in providing the appraisals.î In addition to antique appraisals Heritage Day will include music, book sale, childrenÍ s activities, a bake sale, and great values in the silent auction. It will also be an opportunity for community members to see the new exhibit, ñ Developing our History, Finding our Family: The Stedman and Moses Collection of Historic Photographs,î and join or renew a membership in the Lake Placid-North Elba Historical Society.

ANN, ACT ask what you want to be when you grow up? TUPPER LAKE „ What do you want to be when you grow up? ItÍ s a question generally reserved for school-aged children, but on June 12, the Adirondack Nonprofit Network and ACT challenged nonprofit organizations to think about the future at a workshop called ñ What Do You Want to Be When You Grow Up: Creating a Sustainable, Successful Organization,î held at The Wild Center. The workshop was organized by ACT and ANN as part of a broader effort to lend support to nonprofits across the North Country. Cali Brooks, ACTÍ s executive director, explained that many community-based groups are struggling to sustain the services and programs they provide. ñ Our local nonprofits play a vital role in the quality of life in our communities,î Brooks said. ñ This seminar is designed to help strengthen leadership of staff and board members, the relevance and impact of the organizationsÍ work, and resilience in their ability to survive difficult economic times.î The workshop was facilitated by Andy Robinson, a Vermont-based consultant who works with nonprofits and grassroots groups across the country. ñ ThereÍ s feedback from these groups that they want to think more about sustainability and how they make their organizations last over the long-run,î Robinson said. More than 40 organizations participated in the workshop. Attendees included board

members and staff. Aviva Gold is executive director of GardenShare, a Canton-based nonprofit that

ñ WeÍ re very excited to have Chris on board,î said Cali Brooks, ACTÍ s executive director.ñ His background in journalism and communications, coupled with his passion for the broader Adirondack community, will be a great addition to our organization.î Born and raised in Saranac Lake, Morris returned to the Adirondacks seven years ago to pursue a career in journalism.

Bridge in Jay. One lucky person could even take home a brand new canoe (or head to Hornbeck Boats to pick out one that is fit to their body and needs). The canoe raffle winner’s name will be drawn and announced at the picnic. All proceeds of the Ride benefit the Ausable River AssociationÍ s work to protect and restore the valued resources of the Ausable River for their benefit to the ecosystem and human communities. This yearÍ s ride is in memory of Carol Rupprecht, a dedicated steward of the Ausable River. ñ WeÍ re so lucky to get to live and play in this beautiful river valley spanning high mountains and river lowlands,î said AsRA Director, Corrie Miller. ñ This Ride is a chance to honor all that the River provides FO HDQ Z DW HUH[ FHSW LRQ DOUHFUHDW LRQ DORSSRUW X Q LW LHV a healthy ecosystem, an aesthetic beauty unrivaled, and the strong ties between our valley communities.î

WILMINGTON „ The buzz is building for the Ausable River AssociationÍ s second annual Ride for the River coming up soon on Sunday, July 21.

rector, Carlene Doan, and a board member, Carol Pynchon, participated in the workshop. ñ We were all struck by how helpful it was to be in a room with other nonprofit organizations, even though they are so different than ours,î Gold said. ñ It was great to learn that others share similar challenges to our own. Andy offered great tools for keeping our organization on mission and in focus. Our board member who attended has always been a fantastic, engaged board member with an understanding of the importance of board involvement in fundraising. But she came away from the workshop with incredible new energy for fundraising in part because she better understood a specific role she could play in that process.î Donna Beal is executive director of Mercy Care for the Adirondacks, based in Lake Placid. ñ Mercy Care for the Adirondacks is a relatively new organization,î she said. ñ The Board of Directors is focused on executing its strategic plan, which is designed to sustain and advance Mercy CareÍ s mission to enhance the fullness of life of elders living in our community.

Valley News 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 regionÍ 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 areaÍ 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 townÍ 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 areaÍ s history. „

Letters to the Editor

More on 2nd Amendment To the Valley News: For the last two months Mr Mauer and I have been having an exchange about the meaning of the Second Amendment. In his most recent letter of May 18, replying to my letter of May 4, Mr. Mauer completely misinterprets my observation that the Second Amendment refers to a ñ well regulated militia,î and not, as Mr. Mauer phrased it, to a ñ well trained militia.î He states that I ñ insist that the word ï regulatedÍ somehow has nothing to do with training of the militia . . .ñ I wrote no such thing. The point I tried to make was that, to the courts and historians, the term ñ regulatedî refers to government regulated militias not to private militias. More important, however, are two other claims that Mr. Mauer makes: first, that the Second Amendment’s phrase “shall not be infringedî states an absolute prohibition on gun control; and second, that the Second Amendment provides for the right of revolution. As to the Second Amendment creating an absolute prohibition on gun control, the U.S. Supreme Court nixed that idea in 2008: ñ [L]ike most rights, the Second Amendment right is not unlimited. It is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose . . .î Thus, the Second Amendment, like every component of the Bill of Rights, encounters limits. Lower federal and state courts are in the process of determining what those limits are. Since 2008 federal and state courts have upheld a wide variety of gun control laws. Even more important than Mr. MauerÍ s claim that the language of the Second Amendment creates an absolute prohibition on gun control measures, is his second claim that ñ the overarching purposeî of the Second Amendment is to protect the right of ñ the Peopleî to initiate a revolution via private militias armed with the same military-grade weapons that the U.S. military and National Guardsmen can physically ñ keep and bear.î (Letter of April 6) But what scholars of American history and the Second Amendment have concluded is that the framers had in mind ñ a universal militia, raised and disciplined by the state.î As Mr. Mauer correctly believes, they were animated by fear of the federal government. But the framers did not sanction private militias. In addition, to being disciplined and trained by the states, the American citizens who were part of such a state-created militia were considered to be homogenous and committed to the common good. How does Mr. Mauer conceive of ñ the Peopleî ? If he conceives of ñ the Peopleî as all Americans (or overwhelming majority of them) bound together by common values, a shared view of the common good, and shared perceptions of what it is about our governments (state and national) that is tyrannical enough to

justify armed revolution, I maintain this is a mirage. But this is probably not what Mr, Mauer has in mind. His letters seem to echo the views of militia movements on the Second Amendment right of revolution. Not surprisingly, they do not clearly answer the question of who are ñ the Peopleî claiming a right to revolution. Motivated by particular views held by some people they assume their members are ñ the People.î ñ Throughout AmericaÍ s history groups of citizens have resisted the government in the name of an abstraction called the People. On inspection, however, that abstraction always turns out to be a subset of the citizenry, united by class, language, or political viewpoint.î (Professor David Miller) George Washington stated the issue very clearly. Invoking the Militia Law of 1792 President Washington led 13,000 troops against those who took up arms against the fledgling new U.S. government in the Whiskey Rebellion of 1794. ñ ...if the laws are to be so trampled upon with impunity, and a to dictate to the majority, there is an end put at one stroke to republican government...for some other man or society may dislike another law and oppose it with equal propriety until all laws are prostrate, and everyone will carve for himself.î Polls indicate that 85-90% of Americans and 81% of gun owners favor universal background checks. Suppose Congress someday passes a gun control measure that requires background checks on those who seek to buy guns from unlicensed dealers on-line and at gun shows. Just who are ñ the Peopleî here in terms of the Second Amendment? Would it be a majority of members of Congress voting in accord with an overwhelming majority of Americans, or a minority of gun rights absolutists who would regard such a law as tyrannical? I share with Mr. Mauer profound unhappiness with how dysfunctional our contemporary federal government is, and with many of our laws and judicial decisions. I even think some gun control measures may be unwise and unenforceable and that NYÍ s Safe Act may be unconstitutionally vague. There are legitimate interests on both sides of the gun control issue. But if a group of gun rights absolutists are unable to appreciate the public safety concerns of gun control measures and were to actually resort to violence against the government with military-grade weapons the predictable result would be disastrous, including the tragic deaths of rebellious militiamen.

Support non-profits To the Valley News: The Adirondack Nonprofit Network, a project of ACT, the community foundation of the Adirondacks, recently hosted its annual two-day member retreat at the Blue Mountain Center and a workshop, ñ What Do You Want to Be When You Grow Up: Cre-

ating a Sustainable, Successful Organization,î at The Wild Center. More than 30 nonprofits participated in both events. ANN’s mission is to support and connect nonprofits in their efforts to improve the quality of life in the Adirondacks. Thirtythree organizations serving health care, arts, mental health, public media, environment, education, economic development, civic, and cultural organizations gather annually to work as teams on a variety of topics. The retreat once again solidified the important role nonprofits play in enhancing and improving the quality of life in the Adirondacks. The workshop, meanwhile, offered advice on how nonprofits can strengthen leadership among staff and board members. It also got participants thinking about the relevance and impact of their organizationÍ s work, and their resilience and ability to survive a difficult economic climate. Nonprofit organizations, like government and the private sector, must think creatively in order to continue delivering critical services to the Adirondack region; ANN allows organizations to share ideas and collaborate to accomplish this goal. By working together, nonprofits become stronger and more sustainable, and everyone benefits. Thank you to all of the supporters who make the work of the region’s nonprofits possible.

To the LPCS Class of ‘63 To the Valley News: Greetings classmates and graduates of the class of ï 63. 50 years. Wow! When we stood on that graduation stage so long ago, whom among us thought this time would come so quickly. But here we are. But we have a lot we didnÍ t have then............gray hair, wrinkles, reading glasses, aches and pains. big bellies, sagging butts.......... Medicare. Yes, well.... we earned it all didnÍ t we. I told my Dad one day that I was feeling old having a daughter that was 38. He said, ñ How do you think I feel having a daughter on Medicareî . ItÍ s true.... but we also have our wonderful children, grandchildren and all the things that have come with the lives we built for ourselves. We have grown, aged, matured and I think we can say we are better than we were 50 years ago. See LETTERS, Page 8

Wilson’s Appliance to host grand opening of Placid store By Keith Lobdell LAKE PLACID „ WilsonÍ s Appliance Centers has expanded into Lake Placid, and they are planning to celebrate. The new Lake Placid WilsonÍ s Appliance store, located at 6193 Sentinel Road (the corner of Routes 73 and 86, next to the stoplight at the top of Mill Hill), will host a grand opening event Saturday, June 29, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. “We will have raffles for a high-efficiency washer and four Red Sox tickets along with giveaways to the first 100 customers,” Nate Wilson said. ñ There will be manufacturing reps on site, a free barbecue lunch, deep discounts and very aggressive pricing.î Wilson said he has been pleased with the flow of customers coming into the store through word of mouth, as the site has been opened for about three weeks prior to the grand opening event. He added that the company decided to put a store in Lake Placid based on business that they had been seeing at the Plattsburgh location.

ñ For us as a business, Lake Placid has been a market that has been growing constantly,î Wilson said. ñ We thought that there was a lot of opportunity here that we were missing, and we are here to capture a lot of that.î Wilson said that the store would give residents in the Tri-Lakes who are WilsonÍ s customers a closer location to shop or get service, while attracting a new base of customers. ñ There is the opportunity now to attract the business of some of the seasonal residents who are not as familiar or aware of the Plattsburgh market,î he said. WilsonÍ s Appliance in Lake Placid will sell major household appliances along with televisions and electronics. They also have a parts and services department on site. ñ It is a full parts department with a fully stocked inventory and the knowledgeable staff that you need to go with that,î Wilson said. Store hours are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays. The store is closed on Sundays. To contact the WilsonÍ s Appliance Lake Placid store, call 523-8101.

Continued from page 5 Whether we stayed in this beautiful town or traveled far, Lake Placid and our school were wonderful places to begin our journey and instrumental in giving us the foundation we needed to go off into the world and build our lives. Did we know what we wanted then? Some maybe, most probably not. But we found our way partly because of that foundation that was provided. We knew we came from a special place, didnÍ t we. So off we went out into the world. I donÍ t think they had a clue what the world they were sending us into was about to become, nor did we. Our sedate, innocent, Leave it to Beaver, kind of left-over from the 50s world was about to get a lot more exciting. . JFK, MLK, RFK, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Viet Nam, Kent State, Woodstock, the moon, the Muppets, wine skins, civil rights, womenÍ s rights, gay rights, voting rights, hippies, yuppies, dead heads, folkies, LSD, white rabbits, peppermint DODUP FORFNV P DFUDP -RKQ ' HQ YHU 0 UV 5 RELQ VRQ DQ G -HVX V freaks.....groovy.... and I think thatÍ s just the 60s. As Gus said to Woodrow, ñ ItÍ s been quite a party, ainÍ t it.î Can you think of a better time to be young? And damn....... wasnÍ t our music the best!! EVER!! ItÍ s all part of who we are and our story. We each have personal story that parallels the story of our generation. I would love to be with you to listen to your stories. I know you all have wonderful tales to tell. (Jack alone could take a week) And then, of course, to talk about the memories that we already share. WerenÍ t we lucky to go to a small school where we could actually know each other? Where individually we were valued... not just a number, a face lost in the crowd. And not just by our peers, but by the faculty and staff, some of whom I think actually loved us. I went through the yearbook photos that I sent just remembering each one of you, and, of course those who are no longer with us, one in particular. And I looked at each of you and remembered your laugh, the color of your eyes, your jokes, sometimes tears......each one of you with an individual memory. In my mind, of course, you look just like that yearbook picture. I

There is no lack of opera

To the Valley News: Dear Mr. Alexander, I was surprised to see your publicationÍ s reference to the lack of opera in the Adirondacks, not because of the authorÍ s lack of information, but because the piece got by your usually sharp editors. It seemed especially strange because of Seagle Music ColonyÍ s presence in the Adirondacks for nearly 100 years. The Colony is known throughout the United States for its superb training of young artists. Perhaps it is better known in other parts of the country than it is 30 miles to the north in Elizabethtown. This summer I will entertain a mother and daughter coming from Westchester County to see Kurt WeillÍ s Street Scene. I also have two friends coming up from Saratoga Springs to see the matinee performance. And two intense opera buffs are coming from Croton-on-Hudson to see TchaikovskyÍ s Eugene Onegin. It will be Seatle Music Colony’s first production in Russian. The lack of knowledge about SMCÍ s efforts to bring opera to regional school children is especially troubling. Last fall the childrenÍ s opera Little Red Riding Hood was staged through a BOCES program in 12 schools in the Adirondacks and Champlain Valley. This fall Three Little Pigs will be staged in North Warren, Schroon Lake, North Creek, Minerva, Ticonderoga, Crown Point, Putnam, Warrensburg, Port Henry, Keene Valley, Willsboro, Ausable Forks and other schools. Four operatically-trained singers will stage the opera, invite questions and chat with the students. The plot centers around two boy pigs who are sloppy about building their houses, while the girl pig goes to the library to research the technology of huff-proof, puff-proof building construction. Her house of course survives, and the brothers have to agree that going to the library to read books is a pretty good idea. Ann Breen Metcalfe Schroon Lake

hosted. Approximately 120 bikers from various clubs enjoyed a late-morning ride starting at North End Harley Davidson in Plattsburgh. This yearÍ s event was dedicated to North Country resident, David Pearce, who is presently battling Lou GehrigÍ s disease. I wish to take a moment to extend my deepest gratitude to numerous North Country businesses as well as businesses from the East to the West Coasts, family, friends and community members for their generous monetary contributions or donations to the silent auction. Further gratitude is extended to Northline Utilities, the Law Offices of William T. Meconi and Dr. Mahmoud for their monetary donations toward the purchase of food. Special thanks extended to Keith Lobdell (Valley News), Jeff Meyers (Press Republican) and Deanna Santor (Lake Placid News) for media coverage. Much thanks and appreciation to Joe LaBombard and Crystal Hart for the generous donation of their D.J. services. Pepsi, LoremanÍ s Screen Printing and Plattsburgh Distributors played a significant role in making the day’s event a huge success. In conclusion, a heartfelt thanks and appreciation is always extended to the Mountain Riders Motorcycle Club in making the Annual A.L.S. Fundraiser once again a success. North End Harley Davidson was a welcoming host venue for the bikers to maker their departure. This year, the New York State Police (Troop B/Plattsburgh) assisted by providing safety to the motorcyclist while making their departure. ItÍ s an honor to thank them in memory of Retired Police Officers Lawrence (Larry) Bliss and John Dwyer, who lost their lives to A.L.S. Again, thank you and God Bless. Kelly C.

Take advantage of all June has to offer

Small streams filled with wild brook trout are the answer to an angler’s dreams. There are very few places in the Northeast where such wonderful angling conditions exist; and most anglers don’t even realize they can be found just down the road.


une has always been a great month for outdoor travelers, and especially for kids. It is a month that has delivered freedom from the daily drudgery of schoolwork, as it ushers the exhilaration that arrives with the prospect of a long summerÍ s vacation. June of 2013 has also been a unique month, bringing with it a total of five complete weekends, rather than the usual four. In fact, most students only toiled for a total of 20 days during the month of June, 2013, compared to an average of 23 or 24 days in a typical month of school. For the seniors, June of ï 13 signaled the end of their high school career. In addition to breaking loose from the educational calaboose, the month of June also delivers the opening day of Bass season, and a weekend of free fishing on any public waters in New York state. The free fishing weekend arrives Saturday, June 2930. It provides an ideal opportunity for Mom, Dad or a friendly Uncle to get the kids outside and introduce them to an entertainment system that does not require batteries or an electrical outlet. A fishing pole is the best X-Box Detox tool ever invented. With a big fish on the end of a fishing rod, most kids realize it is safe to leave the electronic entertainment at home. Any child who grows up in the Adirondacks without the proper equipment and the knowledge of how to enjoy the local woods and waters is at a severe disadvantage. Likewise, any parent who fails to provide a child with the proper equipment and the knowledge of where and how to use it, is guilty of recreational neglect. In many of our local communities, there are precious few recreational opportunities for our youth. There are very few safe or appropriate ñ hangouts.î For many years, every local town had a small diner that a served as a gathering place. There were also movie theaters, snack bars and other such places. Sadly, the current generation has few of the traditional hangouts left. In many towns, the only business with the lights on after 8 p.m. is the local Stewarts Shop. Fortunately, Stewarts Shops also sell gas, so teenagers can still get around in their cars. But with the lack of a familiar hangout, many have no place to go. I speak from experience when I say there is nothing more dangerous than a bored teenager. If they canÍ t find trouble, trouble will find them. It is a natural instinct, and it is evident in all wild species, not just human teenagers or juveniles as they are referred to in the animal kingdom. Juveniles, whether they are raccoons, eagles, bears or Billy who lives just down the street, are unpredictable. In most cases, their brains are not fully developed, even if their bodies apparently have. Similar to their distant cousins in the animal kingdom, human adolescents are highly susceptible to dangerous, pack behavior. Their brains are not capable of recognizing or comprehending risks. And yet the troubles can be equally dangerous for either species. In the wild, just as at home, juveniles often exhibit a tendency to wander, and explore, and trouble is usually just a short distance away. Whether the trouble comes from an immature bear marauding through a campground, or a couple of young geese wandering off from the flock, the potential for trouble is as omnipresent as a young man in a fast car zooming down a country road in the dark of night. Parents wlll do their best to keep their kids safe. Cautious does will hide their fawns in the tall ferns, while they wander off looking for food, just as a mother goose will tend to a tidy flock, as they travel in a straight

line behind her, and her mate. Bear cubs can be just as adventuresome, until their mother cuffs one of them upside of the head. Immediately, they learn to pay attention to mom. If human motherÍ s had such resolve, there would be far less trouble in modern society. I never cease to marvel at the awkward aeronautics of fledgling birds. Flying is one of the activities where it surely pays to pay attention to mom. It is often a feathered equivalent of watching a teenager walk face first into a closed door without even attempting to open it. The entertainment isnÍ t always pretty to watch, especially when it involves prey. I once witnessed a raccoon devour a nest full of young robins, despite the motherÍ s best effort to ward it off. It was heart rendering to hear her calls, and to watch as the raccoon climbed down the tree to scavenge the lone bird that had escaped the initial attack. All the frantic mother bird could do was watch the danger from a safe distance, and scold the raccoon. The parallels to a human family in distress were eerily similar, and equally disturbing.

Whether for bass or trout, it is the time to get out

Anglers looking to get out this weekend will find a variety of water conditions, ranging from high to very high. The recent rains have kept most local waters running at spring levels or above. Currently, the Saranac Lakes are at spring levels, forcing many lakeside residents to wear hip boots to get to their docks. I spent the weekend fishing on the lakes, and on the small streams and beaver dam ponds. The big lakes offered up plenty of bass and a few pike, while the beaver dams were equally productive with brook trout devouring flies as fast as I could cast them. Smallmouth bass were all over the Gary Yamamoto Senkos we tossed on the rocky shoals, and pike were willing to chase buzz baits or surface lures with an equal lack of abandon. On the small streams, brook trout were hesitant to take dry flies on the sunny days, but they quickly turned on during the low light of dusk. In one particularly productive outing, I managed to take over a dozen scrappy brookies in consecutive casts. I will admit that I was using a nymph as a dropper below a Ausable Wulff dry fly. Often, I was able to take two small brookies on a single cast, especially if the first fish took the dry fly. A fish in distress will always attract other fish, and the sight of a big nymph bouncing around behind a stressed fish is obviously too good to resist. The little, 9 to 12-inch wild brookies usually arenÍ t difficult to land. However, when you’re battling two of them on a single line at the end of a six foot, three weight flyrod, they are a challenging quarry. Add into the mix a few squadrons of deer flies, a cloud of punkies and some very unhappy alder spiders, and youÍ ve got a real interesting mix of both prey and predators. I was often unsure of my true role, but I was simply having too much fun to be concerned. Joe Hackett is a guide and sportsman residing in Ray Brook. Contact him at

Booze cruising! E

nergy concerns, Middle East conflicts and home-grown independence are all reasons why our nation needs to develop an energy policy that works for the people, the environment and for long term sustainability. Alcohol-based fuels and vegetable fuels are both made from plants. Vegetable oils are being treated and made into bio-diesel. French fry cars! Corn is being processed into alcohol then denatured to make it into a non-drinkable alcohol based fuel. Denaturing is simply adding some hydrocarbon based fuels, like gasoline to alcohol making By Rich Redman it a fuel and non-drinkable alcoholic liquor. The gasoline you buy at the pump today is a mix of 10 percent ethanol and 90 percent gasoline. Using corn as a fuel is good for the midwest farmer, but is hurting the eastern and western dairy farmers who use grain in their feed rations. The cost of corn has risen and it eventually affects food prices. Increased corn prices, along with the western drought have increased beef and pork prices. Food should be for feeding people and animals, not fuel. Switchgrass is an option that many energy scientists are looking at. Once the enzyme is found that can break down the switchgrass and convert sugars to alcohol, grass may be the fuel source instead of corn. Prairie land could be planted to switchgrass and harvested for fuel use. The benefits would be long term perennial grasses planted instead of rotational crops, so carbon would be tied up, erosion reduced and overall fuel and energy used on the farm for crop production reduced. Corn could once again be used for food, hopefully reducing dairy farm feed costs. Switchgrass is also an excellent pheasant cover grass if managed for wildlife habitat. Cutting the grass after the birdÍ s nesting period allows a new brood of birds to survive. Tall grass habitat is also made by simply not mowing some areas like along ditches, roads, stream corridors, and keeping conservation reserve fields for wildlife. Now midwest farmers would have two sources of income once again; grass for fuel and pheasant hunting which brings in millions to areas like South Dakota. When the prairie grass was plowed in and turned to corn ground, much of the birdÍ s habitat was lost. This would be a win-win for both the farmer and the pheasants. On another side of the ethanol front is how to extinguish it when it burns.



Transporting ethanol

There is a concern from fire departments, hazmat teams, and local officials on ethanol transports going through our area almost daily. Railroad traffic in our area has increased due to shipments of ethanol from Canada to Albany. Numerous unit trains are running up and down the shoreline of Lake Champlain daily. A unit train is one that is made up entirely of one type of rail car carrying usually one type of product. In our case, itÍ s a unit train with 100 cars, each holding about 29,000 gallons of ethanol, or 2.9 million gallons of ethanol per train. Almost pure ethanol before it makes it to the fuel depots for remixing is 98 percent ethanol and 2 percent gasoline. This is a polar solvent, meaning it mixes with water. A prime example is a scotch and water cocktail served with ice, enjoyed on the back porch occasionally. Hydrocarbons separate from water and float. Alcohol mixes with water and that is a serious problem when trying to extinguish an ethanol fire. Fire departments will have a very hard time supplying enough water to dilute the ethanol volume involved in a train accident to reduce its flammability. A small leak is possible to dilute, but a car load is the problem. To extinguish an ethanol fire, you need to blanket the fire with AR-AFFF foam, which stands for Alcohol Resistant-Aqueous Film Forming Foam. Alcohol resistant foam doesnÍ t break up in a foam blanket like regular foam. The bubbles in regular foam blankets will slowly dissolve and allow vapors to escape which could possibly reignite. And that is not cool when you are standing near a pool of ethanol! Alcohol resistant foam is about $38 per gallon and a large fire could easily use more than 1,000 gallons, so the cost of extinguishing an ethanol fire may be out of reach for many fire departments and county hazmat teams. The other solution and possible outcome is to let it burn in place and protect the perimeter and surroundings. In the words of Dirty Harry: ñ A man must know his limitations.î At a recent Essex County ethanol fire training program in Willsboro, fire companies trained in the use of AR-AFFF foam. Teaching firefighters how to apply foam so there is an uninterrupted blanket to cool the fire, and eventually provide a layer of foam over the fuel to hold down the vapors so they wonÍ t reignite was the mission of the instructors. They did a superb job. Fire companies from Willsboro, Westport, Moriah, Port Henry, Essex, Lewis, Elizabethtown and elsewhere attended this training sponsored by the Essex County Emergency Services and the NYS Fire Academy. Many of us were mixed with firefighters from other companies so we would get to work with folks outside of our own department. I worked with a great crew from Lewis. As the saying goes, we train for the worst and hope for the best. We are trying to be prepared because there is a lot of denatured booze, cruising through our neighborhoods!
