Artist exchange program ends with exhibit By Katherine Clark


Gruesome Playground Injuries to make debut. PAGE 4

SARANAC LAKE Ñ An artistic journey, crossing over the Mexican-American border and nestling into the Adirondack Mountains, will arrive as a new exhibit at BluSeed Studios. The show Ò Paper Migration” brings the viewer from the petrified cliff off the shores of Mazatlan, Mexico to the High Peaks. The show will hold itÕ s opening reception on Friday Aug. 2, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the studio at 24 Cedar Road. The exhibit, a Cross-Border Exploration of art, culture and community, has been an international collaborative exchange between 14 artists from BluSeed Studios and a cooperative of artists in Mazatlan. Artists from Mazatlan, who will be staying in the community for the show as well as conducting classes at BluSeed, will bring their craft to the studio. BluSeed artists will display individual works both in-

spired by their trip and work that shows their individual styles. In May, artists from BluSeed traveled to Mexico and in exchange several artists have come to Saranac Lake. Seven North Country artists participated in the international exchange, including Jen Kretser, John LaFalce, Katherine Levin-Lau, Larry Poole, Peter Seward, Carol Vossler, and Karen Davidson. Mazatlan, Mexico Artists include: Elina Chauvet, Dory Perdomo Median, David Robb, Nan Robb, Glen Rogers, Lucila Santiago, Rafael Avila Tirado, and JosŽ Carlos Flores Zazueta. During their trips, BluSeed Artistic Director, Carol Vossler said the artists learned about the different cultures through art exhibitions, workshops, public lectures and street performance. The artists from both sides of the border lived amongst the local residents working with community organizations and sharing an

aesthetic that diverges from the typical Ò North CountryÓ or Ò Mexican StyleÓ art. Ò One night we took our pulp to the main market place and people there made a community art piece by throwing the different colored pulp at a canvas,Ó said Vossler. Ò We also made our paper on the beaches putting pulp onto our screens. It was really beautiful and felt like a different world surrounded by these magnificent petrified cliffs making paper in the ocean.Ó The exhibit will be an exchange of the professional print making created by the Mazatlan visiting artists hanging alongside the art of the North Country artists with works inspired by their trip. During the May visit to Mexico, the artists participated in paper making and printmaking workshops with Mexican CONTINUED ON PAGE 11

ELIZABETHTOWN Ñ The North Country SPCA held its grand opening Saturday, July 20 and welcomed the public to their new state-of-the-art facility located at 7700 state Route 9N. The opening celebration comes months after the animals at the shelter officially made the move from the former shelter in Westport to the new facility. That move occurred in November. For more than six years, NCSPCA board members and community members worked to raise more than $1 million for the new shelter modeled after the SPCA headquarters in New York City.

Rainy weather hurting farmers By Kasidi Armstrong

LAKE PLACID Ñ The significant amount of rainfall throughout the North Country this spring and early summer has had a negative impact on many of the farmers in the region. The almost constant rain has stunted crops and has already caused a hay shortage. Vermont recently broke the record for the highest rainfall in two consecutive months Ñ May and June Ñ with a total CONTINUED ON PAGE 11

The American Marten, a happy-go-lucky round-eared, bushy-tailed, slender weasel, is often confused with its cousin, the Pine Marten, because it likes to party among the pines. Its rich, silky fur varies in color from pale yellow to nearly black. By 1892, when the Adirondack Park was created, trapping had nearly erased the marten from the Northeast. New York’s now-healthy population rebounded from a feisty isolated group that survived in the northern Adirondack Park. Martens give weasels a good name: they dine happily on rodents, bugs, amphibians, and reptiles. Another great reason we’re so...

Peter Craig hones his passion for chess By Keith Lobdell SARANAC LAKE Ñ Peter Craig can remember playing the game of chess with his father at a young age. Ò I would play a few games with my dad and I would lose, so I would lose interest and walk away,Ó Craig said. Now entering his senior year at Keene Central School, Craig leaves the chess table with something other than frustration. He now leaves with trophies. As well as tying for first place in both the under 1710 section of the New York State Open tournament at Lake George and under 1810 section at Vermont Resort Open, Craig earned more than his share of team points to help his under 1400 rated team Saranac Village Chess Knights team win first place in Parsippany, N.J. in February. Ò It was pretty tough competition,Ó Craig said. Ò The individual events were both five rounds long, and I was able to win four out of five rounds.” His father, David, introduced Peter to the game of chess on a board that he had made in the eighth grade. Ò I had the feeling that he was going to be a bright kind,Ó David said. Ò I wanted to help stimulate his mind with things like chess.Ó

The father and son duo played many games together at home before hearing about the Chess Knights, a club of enthusiasts who meet on Wednesday nights from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Saranac Village at Will Rogers in Saranac Lake. Ò It was this club that got us thinking about tournaments,Ó David said. What it also did was give Peter a chance to meet new players and see new styles, which helped him develop his chess game. Ò I was able to focus more on the game, and I wanted to become a better player,Ó he said. Ò You can take something from a loss. It was good for my play to see how other people would make their plays and then use that to develop my play.Ó Peter said that he enjoys meeting new players in tournaments and through the club, and continues to play with his new friends long after the competitions end. Ò He does a lot of playing online with the people he meets,Ó David said. Ò I think that this has helped him socially with all of

the different people he has been able to meet.Ó Ò The game itself is fun, and it is fun to meet all these people who play,Ó Peter said. Ò I met a particle physicist from New Jersey once.Ó The result? Ò I beat him.Ó Peter said he hopes to continue playing in tournaments and events and working to improve his ranking on a regional and national level. Ò I just want to keep rising, keep my rating going up and become a better player,Ó he said. Ò The game has taught me how to use my time wisely and not to underestimate people. I tend to be an aggressive player and sometimes I will forget that while I am attacking, I have to defend myself as well.Ó For more information on the Saranac Lake Chess Knights, call 891-7117. Admission is free and materials are provided, as well as refreshments.

Thoughts on Cuomo’s dog-and-pony show


etÕ s be clear Ñ we are grateful to Gov. Andrew Cuomo for establishing the Adirondack Challenge Festival. Local towns and counties couldnÕ t afford to buy that much publicity for our tourism-dependent region. For a weekend, the Adirondack Park was in New YorkÕ s limelight, and it felt great. It felt even better for the governor, who was able to award himself the Adirondack ChallengeÕ s top prize for winning the whitewater rafting races on Sunday, July 21 on the Indian River. The Senate came in second. The Assembly third. Come on! Did they let him win? Did he have a head start? Were State Police scuba divers holding back the other rafts? We know he had a strong team and a top-notch rafting guide in Bone Bayse of Beaver Brook Outfitters. But still ... the governor wins his own challenge? Sounds fishy. We’ll never know the whole truth (the governor’s office isn’t always forthcoming with such information). On face value, it looked like the Adirondack Challenge was one big dog-and-pony show for the governorÕ s ego. But weÕ re OK with that. Maybe Cuomo deserved the win, maybe he didnÕ t. It doesnÕ t matter. For the amount of positive national exposure Cuomo gave the Adirondack Park, he can have a dozen first-place paddles. And if he ever makes it to the White House, heÕ ll remember the good times he had in the Adirondack Park. Maybe heÕ ll set up a summer White House here like Calvin Coolidge did in 1926 at White Pine Camp in Paul Smiths. That would be great exposure, too. New York governors have come and gone, and most have just ignored the Adirondack Park. Gov. George Pataki was a strong advocate; heck, he even bought property here in Essex. And, like Pataki, Cuomo genuinely likes spending time in the Adirondacks. He vacations here with his family, sneaking away from Albany many times without the expectation of a headline or a photo opportunity. That, in itself, is the best testimonial. Yet Cuomo, with deep roots in New York City politics, brings something else to the table that other Adirondack-loving governors have not Ñ the understanding of how to draw attention to this region Ñ get people involved, especially from the downstate movers and shakers

in business and politics. Throw them in a whitewater raft knowing theyÕ ll enjoy the natural beauty, camaraderie of a paddling team, the spirit of competitiveness and fun, and give them a cold Adirondack beer at the end of the day. Show them a good time, and make some memories. ThatÕ s what people will remember the most when it comes time to make decisions about this special place in northern New York. And itÕ s those memories that will generate positive word-of-mouth advertising and lead to an increase in tourism. We only hoped the governor would let New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg win the second Adirondack Challenge whitewater rafting race down the Indian River on Monday, July 22. This way, he would have bragged about it for years, adding even more word-of-mouth value to the experience. Instead, the governorÕ s competitiveness overpowered his political savvy. Everyone has their weakness. Cuomo just had to win the second race, too. The rumblings of criticism about the thousands of people who didnÕ t show up to the Adirondack Challenge Festival in Indian Lake this past weekend are unfair, especially since there was a good crowd of locals and tourists in town. Expectations may have been too high. We think some people lost sight of the real purpose of the Adirondack Challenge. It wasnÕ t to attract tourists for one weekend; it was to attract tourists for many weekends in the future. Thanks to the free publicity and the I Love NY advertising campaign for the Adirondack Region, we hope to see thousands more tourists from New York City, Long Island and Westchester County visit these mountains in the months and years ahead, instead of heading to Vermont, New Hampshire or Maine for their vacations. All in all, the governorÕ s publicity stunt was well worth the time and money, and we thank him for all the attention. We must also thank the dozens of volunteers and organizers who hosted the town-wide festival in Indian Lake for their time, hard work and hospitality. They were somewhat overshadowed by the governor, but they played one of the most important roles over the weekend. They showed the visitors a good time, as they always do, with a smile and a Ò Come back again soon.Ó Ñ

Gruesome Playground Injuries, a new play by the critically acclaimed young writer, Rajiv Joseph, will be showing July 25, 26, 27, 28 and Aug 1, 2, 3, 4 at the Recovery Lounge on Route 9N on the Ausable River in Upper Jay. The play is an emotional roller coaster that begins when Doug and Kayleen meet, wounded, at age 8 in a parochial school infirmary. Through a series of non-linear vignettes that bounce over 3 decades, this unconventional story illustrates how complicated, jagged, and sublime the curse of love can be. With local actors Olivia Zeis and Martin Deslauriers, this production, staged by Recovery Lounge Artistic Director Scott Renderer, will leave you smarting from its sharp humor and even sharper insights. All shows begin at 8 p.m. Tickets are $18 or $10 for students. Reservations are required.

Kids need to be allowed to fail sometimes


any things about being a kid today have changed since I was a kid. Parents and teachers no longer employ physical punishments such as hitting with a hand, ruler or object like a belt. So too is gone ear twisting, hair pulling or the other many expressions of physical punishment that were meted out years ago. When I was a kid, we didnÕ t sit at the table and participate with adults in conversation the way kids do now and many things were held back from us then as certain topics were taboo. These changes, for the most part are probably positive, one change that is not so positive is the enormous pressure kids are under to be successful at everything every time. Growing up there were guys that could take apart anything mechanical and fix it and got positive feedback for what were legitimate skills. Others were already working jobs on farms or in stores and were known as hard workers. Some were good athletes which put a spotlight on them and others were good students and were prized for those skills. There were very few or more likely none, who were outstanding at everything they attempted. IÕ m not sure that was even an expectation in my younger years. Now, every student or young person must do well at almost everything. There are many well-known examples of people who were failures early on but who later enjoyed outstanding success in their lives. Michael Jordon wasnÕ t always the greatest basketball player in the world; Abraham Lincoln lost so many elections that he wasnÕ t even able to be elected dog catcher in his home town and the musical genius Mozart was not seen as any kind of genius initially. In her book The New Psychology of Success, Professor Carol Dweck explains that Ò failure is an important part of learning.Ó Dweck found that there are two possible outcomes from failure, one is that children can become so affected that they become afraid to make further attempts fearing failure or they can realize that failure is part of learning and that these experiences are very valuable. Dweck found that adults around children can heavily affect how they handle success or failure. For example, Dweck warned that parents who frequently tell their kids how smart they are may foster a “fixed mindset and it can backfire.” Children become strongly invested in intelligence as part of their core identity and when they fail they can become very insecure about their abilities. Ò The self-esteem movement almost brained-washed everyone into believing that we can hand our children self-esteem on a platter by telling them theyÕ re great, theyÕ re smart, theyÕ re talented and gifted. It just doesnÕ t work that way. Actually, those statements often make children more fragile.Ó Rather parents should praise children for problem solving skills for the way they approach a difficulty in their lives. Children need praise for effort and the willingness to persist in the face of difficult challenges. Praise for these behaviors can result

TL • Valley News - 5

in a “growth mindset, not a fixed mindset.Ó A child who persists with a tough task even if they are failing in the moment can build self-esteem on their own while theyÕ re learning new ways of thinking. Dweck suggests that, Ò process praiseÓ of children between the ages of 1 and three can predict their mindset and desire for challenge five years later. Dweck also encouraged parents that Ò this kind of mindset can be By Scot Hurlburt encouraged at any age.Ó A fixed mindset undoubtedly limits intellectual growth because the fear of failure embedded in this mindset will discourage intellectual risk taking. Heaps of unearned probably won’t make you a resilient and confident person. For hovering parents, this might be especially good research to consult. Encouraging children to begin to think about the processes associated with problem-solving seems like good, common sense. Talking to children about keeping their fears about failure in check by understanding that they are growing and developing every day and will experience many failures and successes along the way also seems like good common sense. Remember, all kids count. Reach the writer at

Stand your ground? To the Valley News: Why didnÕ t Ò Stand your groundÓ apply to Trayvon Martin? Trayvon was a 17-year-old teenager, not an adult. Trayvon was unarmed, he was terrified with only his fists to protect him. Zimmerman did not fear for his life, he had a gun. Because of ZimmermanÕ s anger over past circumstances he shot and killed an unarmed teenager. Zimmerman, the aggressor, acting as a vigilanty. He was not a law officer. If the jury had not had their hands tied with only the facts they were allowed to use, Zimmerman would have been given a different verdict. He would be serving time for first degree murder!

A new favorite, the supervisor’s milking contest, will be part of the opening ceremonies at the 165th Essex County Fair Wednesday, July 31.

Essex County to celebrate 165 years of the fair By Keith Lobdell WESTPORT Ñ It is one of the oldest continuously-running agricultural and county fairs in the country. The Essex County Fair will celebrate its 165th birthday starting Wednesday, July 31. The fair, held annually at the county fairgrounds in Westport every year since the Civil War, will open on July 31 and continue through Sunday, Aug. 4, featuring a brand new midway and several new activities and shows for all ages. The fair has hired East Coast Midways out of Clinton, ME, to serve as the rides provider this year. Rides will be open every day of the fair starting at noon, with the exception of opening day when they will open once ride inspection has been completed. Ò We are excited to have this group come in and we plan on having a midway that is bigger and better,Ó fair board secretary Bertha Rand said. Ò Along with rides, they will be bringing games and vendors.Ó Returning this year will be hypnotist Michael Blaine, who will be performing at 3 and 7 p.m. on July 31. “We were the first fair that he ever performed at,” Rand said. “He has just grown from there and now he is known across the United States. Even though he has a very tight schedule, he agreed to return to do these shows on Wednesday.Ó On Thursday, Aug. 1, the first ever Essex County Fair Beauty Pageant will be held at 6 p.m. Organized by Angel Face Pageants, the event is for boys and girls in several age divisions. To learn more, visit Other new events include the Haulin’ Junk figure 8 competition Aug. 2 and the Chris Higbee Band Sunday, Aug. 4. Ò He is one of these guys who comes down into the audience and gets involved with them,Ó Rand said. Ò He plays a kind of country music that we thought people would like and that is what attracted us to him.Ó There will be a daily bicycle drawing at 5:30 p.m. throughout the fair for a pair of bikes each day, along with the drawing for the fair’s $5,000 raffle prize on Sunday, Aug. 4, at 4 p.m. There are also several new ground shows at the fair, including Animal Tales and the Barnyard Cackle review. The fair will host its opening ceremonies July 31 at the new cattle show ring, where the fair will honor Kathy Peck with this year’s dedication. There will be the official ribbon cutting to open the fair, along with the second year of the milking contest between members of the Essex County Board of Supervisors, which has already been a topic of conversation at the Elizabethtown meetings. Ò A year ago I was really embarrassed,Ó Westport Supervisor and fair board member Dan Connell said at last monthÕ s DPW Committee meeting. Ò Mr. Marnell beat me in the milking contest and I really want to challenge him because I would like my title back. I held that for 10 years.Ó Ò I will accept that challenge, but I want one thing clear that DanÕ s up here in farm country and I donÕ t want him soliciting these barns and checking these (cows) out,Ó Marnell replied.

Gibson Brothers, James King share favorite songs at Grey Fox

New mandolin players settling in

been about a year, a year and a half since we did it in the studio.Ó Adjusting to life on the road with Eric and Leigh Gibson has been a natural process for Brock, who spent his childhood touring with his own musical family. Ò I already feel like a brother. I feel like a Gibson,Ó Brock said. Ò IÕ ve known the guys since the Õ 90s when they were in the infant stage of their career, and itÕ s great to see them blossom into such a wonderful group with great business minds. TheyÕ ve, along the way, acquired the know-how to stay in business, and IÕ m glad to be a part of it and be part of the team.Ó Since late June, the Gibson Brothers and the James King Band both acquired new mandolin players. Brock, who signed on June 19, met David Watson Jr. of the James King Band informally for the first time backstage between the bandsÕ sets. Watson, playing his eighth show with King in a few weeks, was so fresh that Chance Leadbetter was still listed as mandolin player on the James King BandÕ s website during Grey Fox. Watson is a 20-year-old from West Union, W. Va., and his introduction to bluegrass began at the age of 9, while he was playing the electric guitar. Ò My grandma told me about this jam session going on, but she said I had to bring my acoustic guitar,Ó Watson said in the Grey Fox hospitality tent. Ò And I wondered, Ô What the heck? Why?Õ So I did, and it turned out to be bluegrass. So that’s the first time I played bluegrass, and I’ve

By Andy Flynn OAK HILL Ñ Was it coincidence or fate that brought James King and the Gibson Brothers together July 19 at the Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival, sharing a stage and possibly a recording this coming winter? These back-to-back International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Emerging Artists of the Year Ñ the James King Band in 1997 and the Gibson Brothers in 1998 Ñ presented an evening workshop, Ò Our Favorite Songs,Ó under the Creekside Stage tent after their afternoon sets on the High Meadow Stage. It was classic North meets South, with the Gibson Brothers hailing from New York and James King from Virginia. Ò I want to hear some of that wonderful brother harmony,Ó King said on stage, standing with his guitar between Eric and Leigh Gibson. Ò Basically what youÕ re witnessing tonight for the first time, and I hope not the last time, you’re witnessing a Gibson Brothers-James King sandwich.Ó In all, King and the Gibson Brothers band Ð Eric and Leigh, Mike Barber on bass, Clayton Campbell on fiddle, and Jesse Brock on mandolin Ð played 10 of their favorite songs: Ò Why DonÕ t You Tell Me So,Ó Ò I Just Think IÕ ll Go

Away,Ó Ò Dig a Hole in the Meadow,Ó Ò Crazy Heart,Ó Ò More and More,Ó Ò In the Shadows of My Mind,Ó Ò LoveÕ s Gonna Live Here Again,Ó Ò Ring the Bell,Ó Ò How Mountain Girls Can Love,Ó and Ñ for the encore Ñ Ò Think of What YouÕ ve Done.Ó Ò IÕ ve never done that song before,Ó King said after playing Ò Dig a Hole in the Meadow.Ó Ò IÕ m learning all kinds of new things ... AinÕ t it fun to pick with somebody you never picked with before?Ó This may have been their first time on stage together, but it may not be the last. Ò I suggest that me and the Gibson Brothers go in the studio and record a song this winter,Ó King said. Ò It would be fun.Ó It may also be fun for their fans, of which they have many. And their awards are piling up, too. James King is the 2013 Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America (SPBGMA) Male Vocalist of the Year (traditional), and the Gibson Brothers are the 2012 IBMA Entertainers of the Year. In another twist of fate, the mandolin player who was performing with King on the Creekside Stage Ñ Jesse Brock Ñ also played on the James King BandÕ s upcoming Rounder release Ñ Ò Three Chords and the Truth.Ó Ò Ken Irwin of Rounder Records gave me a call and said they were putting this project together and asked if I was interested in being a part of it,Ó Brock said after the Ò Favorite SongsÓ performance. Ò I said, Ô Sure.Õ That was a no-brainer for me. I love JamesÕ s music, and itÕ s

Little. Pat Tivnan, NCSPCA board member, said volunteers worked around the clock in the final days leading up to the opening to cut timber for the fencing surrounding the parking lot. Ò We are so grateful for all the help everyone has given us,Ó Tivnan said. A play yard and training area was also constructed in the days prior to the opening day celebrations. Margie Reuther, NCSPCA board member, said it was a very emotional experience for her and her family as the new facility named for her mother, Frances Miller Shelter, was opened for the community and animals to enjoy. Ò This is an incredible day for us all and also a great day for the community, this is just as much your shelter as itÕ s any ones,Ó said Executive Director of the NCSPCA Jessica Hartley. Little said the facility is a shining example for other community shelters. Ò People who are going to build a shelter will be looking because this is a prime example of how to do something and do it well and do it right,Ó Little said. The 3,200-square-foot building was designed by ARQ Architects, who were in charge of the renovation of the SPCA headquarters in New York City. The New York City shelter is being used as a national model for its ventilation, lighting, for being nearly sound proof, its energy efficiency and for providing a stress-free environment for animals. The shelter also features a sophisticated ventilation system, which keeps it at a comfortable temperature and prevents illnesses like parvo, a highly contagious virus for dogs, from spreading from one animal to another. Ò Something like this doesnÕ t happen easily but it sure is worth

the effort and they say good things take time and take energy and take a lot of wonderful generous people to make it possible,Ó Little said. Ò Many, many animals are going to be here and hopefully not for long and they all thank you for what a difference and such a place for them to be in until they go to a good home.Ó Little said the new shelter is a much more pleasant and comfortable facility to visit when people are considering adopting an animal. Prospective adoptive parents can see that animals are in better shape and a better mood because of the environment in which they live. Ò I think the adoptions will probably take place a lot faster than they have in the past,Ó Little said. Ò Thank you to everyone. IÕ m just honored to be here and proud to represent all of you and those who did participate. This is a prime example of something else the North Country can do better than anyone else.Ó For more information about the shelter or to find out how to adopt an animal call 873-5000.

been doing it ever since.Ó A few years later, Watson began playing mandolin, filling in for several bands and had been touring with a country band the past year before James King hired him. Ò I emailed him and sent him some recordings I had,Ó Watson said. Ò He liked what he heard, I guess, and he had me down to his house to meet him. He decided to hire me on board.Ó Being the youngest and newest member of the band, adjustments have to be made, and thereÕ s always something to learn. Ò I guess the biggest thing IÕ m learning right now is how to travel and work the maps and drive all night,Ó Watson said. Ò We got here just a few hours before we played with no sleep, and weÕ re not going to be sleeping this night, either, except a little bit on the van, I guess.Ó As for learning the music, Watson spent some quality time with KingÕ s many recordings. “I had about five days to learn 30 songs, so I spent a lot of hours memorizing the choruses and getting the harmony down,Ó Watson said. Ò But it just takes a lot of practice playing along with CDs and the metronome.Ó On July 20, the James King Band flew out to the West Coast for a 10-day tour of northern California and Washington state. On the same day, the Gibson Brothers flew out to Ohio for a performance. Once the festival season is behind them, perhaps theyÕ ll meet in the studio for that recording King suggested.

Exhibit of tapestries to open SARANAC LAKE Ñ Ò Local + Color,Ó an exhibit of new tapestries by Donna Foley, will open at the Adirondack Artists Guild on Friday, Aug. 2, with a reception from 5-7 p.m. The show will run until Sept. 2. Foley writes, Ò Two key elements in my work as a tapestry weaver have been the lustrous wool I get from my sheep and the natural dyes I use for the coloring of this wool. Natural dyes or vegetal dyes are the colorants that have been used for thousands of years. It has only been in the last 130 years or so that synthetic dyes made in laboratories from coal tar and other petroleum products have come to the scene. Previous to this, plants, and in some cases insects or mollusks, have been the principal sourceof dyes. In this new exhibit of work, I have revisited my love of collecting local plants from woods, fields and bogs and combined their soft muted colors with the traditional bright colors from such natural dyes as indigo, madder root and cochineal.Ó The Adirondack Artists Guild is a cooperative retail artgallery representing a diverse group of regional artists residing and working in the Tri-Lakes area of the Adirondack Park. The gallery is located at 52 Main St., Saranac Lake, 891-2615.

Adirondack Challenge Fest hits region Cuomo launches By Bill Quinlivan new ad campaign

INDIAN LAKE Ñ Gov. Andrew CuomoÕ s extended weekend in northern Hamilton County for the first-ever Adirondack Challenge Festival was fruitful for him and for the region. The governorÕ s team took away the two top whitewater rafting prizes Sunday and Monday, July 21 and 22, and the stateÕ s media was focused on the Adirondack Park the entire time, something Cuomo intended as a boost to local tourism. The governor was accompanied by a large contingent of politicians (state, county and local), executive aides, rafting professionals and press, all supported by a cadre of volunteers from Indian Lake. This all started with a mention by Cuomo in JanuaryÕ s State of the State address. As many had hoped, Indian Lake became the selected venue, being billed as the stateÕ s Ò Whitewater Capital.Ó For several weeks, the town of Indian Lake pulled together all its government and community resources in preparation for the event. This effort was driven by a number of motives, not the least of which was community pride and a desire to showcase the town to the visiting dignitaries, press and public in the best possible light, while enjoying the fruits of the eventÕ s ability to increase recognition and tourism within the town. A few saw the event as the Ò magic bulletÓ that would go a long way to solving many of the townÕ s perceived shortcomings, but most were more realistic and longer-term in their thinking. During his address at the July 21 award ceremony held at the Gore Mountain ski center in North Creek after the river run, Cuomo defined his objective. Ò I want to get the word out about the Adirondacks,Ó Cuomo said. Ò People just donÕ t know what we haveÉ all we have to do is show them … you can’t find this any where else on the globe.” And, the governor put his back into accomplishing this objective. The Ò raceÓ ran a mere 3-mile section of the Indian River and was not expected to take much more than 25 minutes. All along the route, cameras were flashing and videos were recording the beauty of the scenery and the fun being had by all participants along the way. Footage of the area surrounding Indian Lake was taken from the air. It was a well-oiled publicity machine being focused on the whitewater and paddling opportunities that exist in this beautiful and pristine part of the Adirondack Region of New York state.

On Monday morning, CBS Morning News was giving the event, the Adirondacks and the governor national broadcast coverage that included a mention of the town of Indian Lake. State Sen. Betty Little was very pleased with CuomoÕ s efforts. “I will be the first to admit that when I first heard of the idea, I thought that the governor was joking, but it was no joke,Ó Little said. Ò The governor follows through on what he says he will do.Ó Little went on to describe the governor as the No. 1 fan of the Adirondacks. Ò He understands the need for help to turn the Adirondacks around,Ó Little said. Ò What do you think this level of publicity would cost? It just does not get any better than this.Ó Hamilton County Board of Supervisors Chairman Bill Farber showed the governor around Indian Lake over the weekend, accompanying him to the Indian Lake Volunteer Fire Department barbecue on Saturday, July 20. During the award ceremony at Gore on July 21, Farber called for more Adirondack Challenges in the future with activities such as mountain biking and fishing. “We need to find more opportunities to link our counties together,Ó Farber said. Regarding a spirit of cooperation that leads to the success of the region and all its parts, Farber noted that the Adirondack Challenge was held in three counties: rafts launched in Indian Lake in Hamilton County, the rafts pulled out of the Indian River in Minerva in Essex County, and the award ceremonies in North Creek in Warren County. During his closing remarks July 21, Cuomo also touched on a theme of cooperation and pulling together when discussing the well-known economic needs of the counties and small towns of the Adirondack region. Ó For good times or bad times, nobody comes together like the people in this state,Ó Cuomo said. Like the dam opening on Abanakee Lake, the Adirondack Challenge was seen by many as providing a Ò bubbleÓ of sorts. In all likelihood, this event, if joined with other similar efforts on the part of state and county governments, will increase tourism and possibly have an effect on improving the economy and adding jobs in the long term. It is certainly true that efforts at levels above the individual towns may provide the bubble of water to float upon, but the real Adirondack challenge is up to communities and groups of communities to learn how best to take advantage of the bubble by cooperating and pulling together in guiding the boat that is the Adirondacks.

By Shawn Ryan ELIZABETHTOWN Ñ Coinciding with the inaugural “Adirondack Challenge,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office has launched a new television advertisement prominently featuring the Adirondack region as a destination for outdoor tourist activities. The ad is part of a $60 million campaign launched in May, aimed at growing New York state industry, creating jobs and attracting tourists to the state. Ò With more than 2,000 miles of hiking trails, 3,000 lakes and ponds and stunning natural wonders, the Adirondacks and North Country make for the perfect summer escape,Ó Cuomo said in a press release. The ad features Adirondack guides from different disciplines singing the praises of the Adirondacks while participating in the activities they love. The ad opens with shots of whitewater rafters and hikers, along with a view of a picturesque Adirondack lake, while an announcer declares: Ò This summer, New YorkÕ s Adirondacks and North Country are back and open for business.Ó The initiative is aimed at helping the region continue to recover from Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee two years ago. Ò I think itÕ s a tremendous initiative,Ó said Greg Borzilleri, owner of Mirror Lake Boat Rentals in Lake Placid. A clip of Borzilleri paddling a stand-up-paddleboard on Mirror Lake appears in the ad. Ò To native New Yorkers, my message is simple: Ô thereÕ s no reason to leave the state this summerÕ and to everyone else looking for the perfect summer getaway, I say, Ô come experience the Adirondacks and North Country,Õ Ó Cuomo continued in the release.

The road going past the most important camp building, the outhouse! Photo by Rich Redman

Light at the end of the tunnel


he last few years before I retired, I would see a bunch of guys at my morning coffee stop and I would mention I had two years to go, and then the countdown was to one year, with retirement in sight. Some of the guys would say: Ò you wonÕ t be happy retired, youÕ ll get bored, thereÕ s nothing to do.Ó Since I retired, my feet have been in high gear doing anything and everything. I am so busy I donÕ t have time to get bored. Besides my wildlife, conservation and grazing management consulting business, I am working on my 50-acre woodlot, fixing up the roads, installing an outhouse, repairing an old log cabin, and trying to manage the woodlot that was cut off about five years ago. Managing a woodlot is an adventure. You need to be part By Rich Redman forester, part road builder and part wildlife management artist. One other skill needed is not being afraid of hard physical work, especially on hot steamy days, like we have had lately. With all the talk about diabetes and health problems these days I think we need to get more people off their butts. They need to start cutting and chopping down trees, splitting and stacking firewood. That is one sure way to burn off that extra energy, get in better shape, and have fuel to warm your cabin in the winter. ThatÕ s my prescription for day! Hard physical work and lots of water cleans the body, and the mind! You will have no trouble sleeping either; guaranteed! I have been hauling gravel to the property to get my main haul and access road usable so I can get to the cabin and prepare for the upcoming hunting season. My pickup, dump trailer and small 30 HP New Holland tractor, are doing the work. The loads are not large using the dump trailer, but they are getting the job done. One by one, potholes and spongy spots on the old road are slowly being repaired and restored for vehicle use. Culverts will be replaced where the old ones were damaged by the previous logging operation. The cabin will be ready, firewood cut and the main road in good shape by fall. Once I get the roads completed, itÕ s time to start the woodlot management aspect of forest ownership. I have a background in soils, conservation and forestry, so I will do my own timber cruise and management plan, but I am also bringing in a few friends who are foresters and/or sawmill operators by profession to give me some advice, and hopefully some tips on markets and timber values. You learn more by shutting up and listening than by yacking away constantly. As I have mentioned previously, a man must know his limitations. The woodlot has hemlock, white cedar, red maple, white pine, balsam fir, some sugar maple and other species. I should be able to supply a farm or two with cedar fence posts, and have the larger diameter ones milled out for boards. First comes grading and shaping the skidder haul roads, then the salvage work, cleaning up downed trees that were left behind, or blown over by the storms and thinning as I go. My goal is to be able to drive around all the roads on my tractor to harvest firewood and forest products so I can offset the taxes and recover fuel costs and other associated costs of forest management. I will be managing on a tree by tree basis, where I will evaluate what will be cut and what will be left based on future use. The few sugar maples I have will be managed for maple sugar production in the future. I will open up around them by thinning and doing improvement cuts so they branch out and develop a full spreading crown. They may not make good saw logs but the added branching will produce maple sap for sugar production in the future. Existing openings will be managed for early successional habitat and browse for deer. Wild apple trees will be planted and in time crab apples will provide grouse some chow. The timber species will be managed for saw logs as much as possible. Managing a woodlot is no different than grandma weeding out her garden. You take out the inferior species, the poor quality and allow the strong and healthy to survive. I will cull out or weed out my forest garden and let the strong healthy trees grow and thin out inferior and crowded species for timber, firewood, pulp for the paper mill or fence posts. Some culled softwood will be used for outdoor wood stoves to heat homes. This piece of property is no jewel. It needs lots of work and in time it will be something. As long as our hearts are pumping blood and our lungs take in cool forest air, my wife Diane and I will manage the property with the future in mind. We may not see the benefits of a deer eating those apples or grouse feeding on crabs, but our kids and grandkids will. I may be compost by the time all those young trees get to maturity, but those two young boys will soon be young men and they will have a sweet spot to hunt, a forest to manage and an opportunity. Now is the time to start teaching them and make sure they do things right. The main access road is almost done. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, so working on the forest management aspect comes next, and that is the fun part. Managing your woodlot is like working in your garden, it can supply you food, an income and keep you healthy in body and mind. Remember to do things safely, get the proper chainsaw safety and felling training before you run a saw. An injury can easily ruin your day. You donÕ t want to let the saw cull you out of lifeÕ s existence!

From page 1 of 18.6 inches. Plattsburgh and the surrounding towns saw an average of 10-20 inches in the same time frame. In some areas of upstate New York, the rainfall has measured more than 25 inches, according to the National Weather Service. In comparison, the statewide average annual rainfall is around 36 inches, or 3 inches per month. That water has saturated fields, ruining crops and making it impossible to harvest hay. Melissa Monty-Provost at Country Dreams Farm in Plattsburgh said she’s been worried about the plants in her fields. “They were flooded, stunted and the water was stagnate. We had to re-plant in some areas,Ó she explained. Ò But with this beautiful sun weÕ re starting to see some growth.Ó Monty-Provost said they have been concerned about blight, a fungus that grows on plants that withers leaves and turns them brown. Provost explained that she gets daily emails from Cornell University of where the blight is in this region, and itÕ s getting closer. Tina Huestis of Huestis Farm in Ticonderoga is afraid the soggy weather will affect pollination and honey production Ñ her farmÕ s main source of income. Ò Bees donÕ t like heat and rain, and arenÕ t pollinating,Ó Huestis said. With such a short growing season, Huestis believes her farm will be producing less produce and honey this year. Malone farmer Tim Armstrong said the excessive moisture has negatively impacted farmers throughout the region, especially those in lower-lying areas. He believes the problem will raise the cost of feed, meat and produce. “I went to check the fields a couple of days ago on my four wheeler, I should have brought a boat,Ó Armstrong said. Ò Some places with higher ground, the corn has already been cut. But everywhere else the plants are starting to yellow. Farmers with low- lying fields are seriously worried now. I’ll be lucky if I can cut in mid-August. If it stops raining.Ó Ò Some people canÕ t get to where they need to cut without tearing up the fields. If we can’t get corn or hay, then we can’t feed our cattle,Ó continued Armstrong. Ò We sometimes have to choose if getting some corn is worth tearing up the fields.” The decision is usually a hard one. Farmers often must choose to let the growing corn over-ripen so they wonÕ t brutally damage their corn fields. Armstrong said local farmers are already feeling the pinch. Ò The price for hay is already high. If I canÕ t get at least one good cut of hay, then IÕ ll have to sell my cows. I wonÕ t be able to feed them over the winter. But itÕ s not just me, itÕ s everyone. They all are starting to take note of what animals they might have to sell.Ó Now with the muggy summer heat, farmers will have to work double time to keep their dairy cows cool enough to still be able to milk, using fans and other means of cooling. This will, in turn, drive up milk prices with the other meat and produce items, hurting the consumers as well as the farmer, Armstrong said. Anita Deming, a Master Gardener with Cornell Cooperative Extension in Westport, said farmers are just now able to cut

hay for the first time this season. Normally, farmers are able to get three or four cuttings in per season, but there simply is not enough growing time left to allow that type of harvest this year. Ò I think weÕ ll be lucky to get two cuttings in this year,Ó Deming said. Ò Farmers just havenÕ t been able to get their equipment out.Ó To make matters worse, much of the hay that is currently being cut is over-mature, meaning it has lost most of its nutrients. It may be able to sustain some animals like horses and beef cattle, but is not high enough in nutrients to keep dairy cows producing at optimum levels. The situation is creating the perfect storm to drive up the cost of beef and dairy, Deming said. Vegetable farmers are fairing a bit better, especially those with greenhouses Ñ like Monty-Provost at Country Dreams Farm Ñ that are able to control the climate. But others, especially organic growers, are dealing with a number of problems from the high amount of moisture, including fungus, mold and bacteria. Ò We are calling it the year of the fungus,Ó Deming said. Deming said the U.S. Department of Agriculture has yet to declare a disaster here, but that could certainly change if the forecast pattern returns to rain. “Farming is a difficult thing,” Deming said. “You are working in a natural system that is always weather dependent.Ó While many crops are well behind for this time of year, farmers do have products available. The best thing consumers can do at this point, Deming said, is patronize local farmerÕ s markets and buy local. To find one, visit www.adirondackharvest. com.

artists, gallery talks, group exhibition, demonstrations and plein-air painting. Ò On our last trip three years ago we focused our attention on print-making, these artists are very mature in their talents with printmaking and people will see that at the show,Ó said Davidson. Ò We focused primarily on paper making this time as it is a craft that is not being exercised there or in any studio around there.Ó The artists immersed themselves in the culture of the area, living side-by-side with the artists. Ò We didnÕ t experience Mazatlan as a tourist might, we were living as our hosts did,Ó said Poole. Ò We were in a different culture and different setting, it was so enriching.Ó Of the artists who traveled to Mexico, several veteran adventurers took the trip as well as new travelers, Poole, Davidson, and Kretzer. Vossler, said the experience will come out through the various art work. Ò When we were down there we didnÕ t have to be stuck in the norm of printmaking, we expanded to teach the art form to another culture,Ó said Vossler. Ò Paper making is such a basic process for all artists, weÕ ve really been trying to promote our paper making so we brought something different from us to them.Ó For more information about the show or to participate in a class at BluSeed call the studio at 891-3799 or go to
