County treasurer to head national group TICONDEROGA Ñ Essex County Treasurer Michael Diskin of Ticonderoga attended the annual meeting of the National Association of County Collectors, Treasurers and Finance Officers in Fort Worth, Texas, on July 17 and 18. While attending the annual meeting, he was elected to serve until July 2014 as president of NACCTFO. As part of his duties as President of NACCTFO, Diskin will be traveling around the United States over the Michael Diskin next 12 months visiting various State Associations of County Collectors, County Treasurers, and County Finance Officers to talk about NACCTFO and the benefits that NACCTFO can provide for its members. While in Fort Worth, Diskin also attended professional certification course work in public policy administration provided by the University of Missouri - Saint Louis which provides NACCTFO with a professional certification program for county treasurers, tax collectors, and finance officers. Diskin has previously attained the highest level of certification, the Chancellor’s Certificate in Public Administration as a Finance Master, having now attended over 245 hours of training. The courses, offered through a partnership between the Public Policy Administration program at the University of Missouri St. Louis and NACCTFO, provide an opportunity for NACCTFO members to continuously improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their offices. “The certificate program provides the public servants who oversee taxpayer dollars the opportunity to learn and share best

practices,Ó said Deborah Balser, director and associate professor of the public policy administration program at UMSL. Ò In today’s economy, this kind of ongoing professional development is vital. The fact that Michael Diskin has attained the highest level of certification is a significant accomplishment and indicates his commitment to ongoing education in the field. The course work covered development of electronic payment systems, techniques for collecting overdue taxes, and a discussion of the ramifications of the mortgage crisis. Participating in the classes illustrates Diskin’s commitment to keeping Essex County on the cutting edge

of fiscal stewardship.” Diskin has served as Essex County Treasurer since 1995 and has previously received the President’s Award in 2002 and the Outstanding Finance Official of the Year Award in 2006 from the New York State County Treasurers and Finance Officers Association.

Scout project provides affordable food

Ti youth market to close Saturday By Fred Herbst TICONDEROGA Ñ Affordable, fresh produce has been available in Ticonderoga this summer thanks to a Ticonderoga Girl Scout. Becky Barber, an ambassador scout, became concerned about the affordability of fresh food earlier this year and developed a plan to address the issue as part of her scout Gold Award project. The Gold Award is the highest award in Girl Scouts. Barber started a community garden this spring at the Ticonderoga First United Methodist Church, asking younger scouts and other children to assist her. The fruits of their labor has been sold at a Ò Creating Healthy Places/Youth Farmers MarketÓ held each summer in conjunction with the Ticonderoga Farmers Market. Ò I decided I wanted to address the need for a farmers market where affordable fresh fruit and vegetables can be purchased,Ó Barber said. Ò The issue is educating youth, families and the com-

munity on making healthy food choices and supporting the local produces and the farmers market.Ó Barber feels most families in the community are on a limited budget and can’t afford to purchase healthy items, thus making poor food choices. Ò This community garden adds more variety to the local farmers market and is more affordable for those who can’t afford to purchase fresh produce,Ó she said. The youth market will be open for the final time this summer Saturday, Aug. 17, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Besides providing affordable, fresh fruits and vegetables, the project has been an educational tool for local youth. Ò While helping in the garden they have learned to plant vegetables, how to market their produce and how to make healthy food choices,Ó Barber said of her young assistants. Ò The purpose of this project is to get area youth involved in the planting and running of the market to help educate them on where food begins and how it ends up on the table. These youth have learned the necessary planting skills, how to maintain a garden and how to sell the produce at the local market. In addition to these life skills, the youth have learned about healthy eating habits.Ó

August 17, 2013 To make her project a reality, Barber worked with Matt Courtright, executive director of the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce; Meg Parker, Essex County Public Health/ Creating Healthy Places coordinator; local farmer Doug Nadeau and the Ticonderoga First United Methodist Church. Ò I would like to thank Betty Rettig for donating some green beans to sell at the market,” Barber said. “Betty’s green beans were also grown in the Community Garden at the Methodist Church. Doug Nadeau of Nadeau’s Farm for his donation of time and plants. Meg Parker from Essex County Public Health for the donation of seeds, being a mentor, and helping out at the market each week in distributing information on healthy habits, healthy recipes and for the donation of the tent, banners, table clothes. Matt Courtright for being a mentor, helping with publicity of this project and for the donation of a table, paper, and pens needed for the operation of the market. Frances Malaney for donating baskets for use at the market.Ó Pictured above: Becky Barber, an ambassador scout, became concerned about the affordability of fresh food earlier this year and developed a plan to address the issue as part of her scout Gold Award project.

Area residents asked to help with project SILVER BAY Ñ Local residents are being asked to participate in a project chronicling life in the Adirondacks a century ago. The J.S. Wooley Project is an effort to collect information and photos from Wooley, a famed photographer in the region at the turn of the 20th Century. A meeting on the project was held Aug. 14, at the Silver Bay YMCA auditorium. “We’re reaching out to people in the community,” explained Richard Timberlake, one of the project leaders. Ò So many people in the area know about J.S. Wooley and his work that we’re seeking they help. They may have information we can use.Ó Timberlake hopes to schedule a similar meeting in Ticonderoga this fall. The project will create of book, video, traveling exhibit and website detailing Wooley’s work around Lake George. Jesse Sumner Wooley (1867-1943) was a Ballston Spa photographer who documented the area surrounding Lake George. “Wooley’s artistic vision combined with the changing science of photography fueled his innovative and entrepreneurial spirit, resulting in thousands of photographs of local, national and international people, places and events,Ó according to Brookside Museum in Ballston Spa, which is sponsoring the project. Ò Wooley embraced the technological changes in photography as they emerged, and produced thousands of photographs that he shared with his community. Ò The J.S. Wooley Project unveils newly discovered images that showcase an emerging America, whose people valued travel, lei-

sure and wealth,Ó the museum claims. Timberlake, himself a photographer, said Wooley photos are common throughout the region. Some are on exhibit at Fort Ticonderoga. “We’ve had meetings in Saratoga, Silver Bay and at the Crandall Library (Glens Falls),” Timberlake said. “We’re slowly working our way around the lake.Ó Timberlake, who helped open the Downtown Gallery in Ticonderoga, has spent time at Glenburnie the past 10 years. After obtaining skills for darkroom work at Ohio State University and Columbus College of Art and Design, he pursued a variety of activities and working in many aspects of photography and print. In 2004, he founded Timberlake Photos. In 2011 a friend told Timberlake about hundreds of Wooley negatives found in Bolton. “There must have been 700-800 negatives and they didn’t know what to do with them,Ó Timberlake recalled. Ò I have a darkroom and was able to help.Ó Philip Terrie, emeritus professor of American Culture Studies and Environmental Studies at Bowling Green State University, is assisting Timberlake in leading the project. Formerly assistant curator at the Adirondack Museum, he is author of Ò Contested Terrain: A New History of Nature and People in the Adiron-

dacksÓ and Ò Forever Wild: A History of Wilderness in the Adirondacks,Ó both published by Syracuse University Press. “Brookside cares for thousands of Wooley’s images and negatives – all reflecting the artistic talent of a man who was using cutting edge technology during his time,Ó said Joy Houle, Brookside’s executive director. “Another private collection of Wooley photographs focusing on the Adirondacks was recently discovered, and that has prompted the launch of the J.S. Wooley Project.Ó

Get serious about road repair Money is the major problem


hen driving over roads in the Adirondacks, drivers and passengers routinely cringe when driving over potholes or veering around ruts in the road. While such road conditions may provide an entertaining obstacle course for some Ò road warriors,Ó the deteriorated roads not only are a threat to public safety in triggering crashes, but they cause considerable damage to vehicles which boost repair and maintenance costs substantially for us all. Younger drivers may take the prevailing road conditions for granted. But those of us who’ve been around for a while remember how decades ago, roadways were substantially smoother across the state. We remember how crossing state lines meant an abrupt change from cruising on smooth black asphalt surfaces, to driving on rutted bumpy roadways of Pennsylvania, New Jersey or Massachusetts. This scenario has changed dramatically. Faced with repeated financial shortfalls since the onset of the recession, New York State and its counties and towns slashed spending on roadway repair, and the results are evident in the road conditions here. The problems with lack of road maintenance, however, go back further than 2008. Years ago, a top state Department of Transportation official gave a presentation to Warren County supervisors, warning about how lack of funding for repair of the state’s roads was at near-crisis status, requiring billions of dollars more each year to restore roads to their historical condition. Putting off needed minor repairs and resurfacing, he said, caused serious deterioration to occur that required far more expensive road reconstruction. He cited studies concluding that it costs seven times as much money to repair a road in bad condition than it does to maintain a road in adequate status. His warning was on target. An independent study showed that although New York had once had roadway conditions that far outshined the neighboring states of New Jersey and Connecticut, all three states had sunk to the bottom ranking nationally in recent years. The New York Times reported that New York ranked 43rd among the 50 states, Connecticut ranked 44th and New Jersey was the absolute last at number 50. The study was based on measuring excessive vibration. At the time, it was reported that transportation officials calculated that poor road conditions cost U.S. motorists about $68 billion per

year in extra repair and maintenance costs, or as much as $800 to $1,000 extra annually per driver in regions with the most neglected roadways. In 2009, the American Society of Civil Engineers assigned a near-failing grade of Ò DÓ to the nations roadways. Studies conducted since then have showed that despite billions of dollars in federal stimulus funding being spent on roadway repair, prevailing conditions have actually declined. For several years now, Warren County Public Works Superintendent Jeff Tennyson has voiced this same warning, about how procrastination on roadway repair costs taxpayers far more than paying a modest sum extra each year for responsible road upkeep. Several weeks ago, he repeated his warning, noting the continued deterioration of county roadways. He said he could easily prepare a list of roads requiring repair that was four pages long. County supervisors responded by endorsing repair of three roadways, which we applaud, but their commitment to road repair should be far greater. There’s some relief on the horizon, we hear, to the lack of state funding for road repair. Earlier this year, the New York State Association of Counties called for a substantial increase in funding for roads and bridge repair and reconstruction statewide, noting that existing funding levels were only at about threequarters the level needed to maintain current conditions. The state legislature responded by boosting the state’s Consolidated Highway Improvement Program (CHIPS) by $75 million for each of the next two years. While this increase should be applauded, it will take far more than this sum to stem ongoing roadway deterioration, particularly in light of decreases in federal funding and the end of the stimulus infrastructure grants. Counties and towns also need to step up and authorize road repair and maintenance projects that are needed to keep our roads in good condition. Poor roads not only cost drivers a lot in vehicle repair Ñ which is in itself far more costly year by year but they also crucial to the area’s economic vitality. They directly impact businesses’ financial health, job creation and retention and quality of life in general. But most important, poor road conditions can cause accidents which involve injury and deaths, particularly to motorcyclists. Ñ

Letters to the Editor

Thanks for article

Sad day for justice

To the Times of Ti:

To the Times of Ti:

Thanks so much for publishing the article regarding the grave of Isaac Morse III recently located on Baldwin Road. The property, now owned by Bill and Bob O’Conner, was once the farm of Issac Morse (born in Worcester, Mass.)and the “first American” to own the property. In the 1890s the farm was owned by A.J. Cook who maintained the cemetery and the small fence around it. Andrew Jackson Cook was the son of Sophia Morse (daughter of Isaac) who married William Cook (son of Samuel Cook) in 1813. The cemetery could be seen by travelers along Baldwin Road who were going to the Rogers Rock Hotel. Others buried there are: Elizabeth (Eliza) Smith Morse Ò his concubineÓ died Sept. 17, 1824, at the age of 63; Allice (sometimes spelled Alice) Morse, his daughter, who died Feb. 22/23 1825 at the age of 28; and sons, Lyman B. Morse ,who died June 8, 1826 at age 23, and Zadock P. Morse, who died Jan. 30, 1829, at age 38. At one time, the property owned by Issac Cook, probably included the old Homelands Property; the land now comprising the Rogers Rock Club and all lands in between (including the Baldwin Dock property and all of Heart Bay!). Not to mention all the land on the west side of Baldwin Road. It must have been a sizable piece of property. Isaac was a distant relative of mine (fifth cousin six times removed) and I never knew of the existence of the cemetery until you published the article. He was also fifth cousin three times removed of Horace A. Moses. Thanks again for the article. William J. Bryan Arlington, Vt.

Fire victims grateful To the Times of Ti: Our family moved into this area from New York City in 2006. The response we have received to the burning of our house on Monday, Aug. 5, has been quite a contrast to what we’re used to in the city where tragedy and loss are so common place that the usual reaction is to step over the bodies. I am deeply moved to express my gratitude for God’s love as communicated through the care and concern of the people who have so generously opened up their hearts and pockets to support our family in this time of tribulation. I can only give a few examples of the blessings we’ve received. The Red Cross has provided housing and emergency funds. A complete stranger left his trailer for us to store whatever we could salvage from the charred remains of our home. The Ticonderoga Fire Department did a heroic job in stemming the blaze. Thank God no one was hurt, not even our pet guinea pig. Churches have stepped up to provide much needed financial help and resources for us to get back on our feet. Our landlord as usual has been gracious and understanding. Silver Bay Conference Center is now providing my son and I with a temporary place to stay. In many ways, we’re better off than we were before our house burned down. The list of people who have been supportive has clearly demonstrated the promises of the Bible. 2 Chronicles 7:14 states: Ò If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and seek My face and pray and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.Ó One friend told me Ò their response is an indication of who you are.” I think it’s more of an indication of who God is. We have heard from heaven through the groundswell of angels he has sent to us. It has shown us there is so much more good than bad in small town life. Thank you for your care and concern. I just hope and pray that I can pay it forward when given the opportunity. Vince Gerardi and family Ticonderoga

Aug. 8, 2013 was a sad day for justice and for a well revered family of Crown Point. Society was not served well when Judge Richard B. Meyer handed down the maximum sentence allowed under the plea agreement reached in the People v. David R. Lang case. Background, for anyone not familiar with the tragic consequences of a drunken afternoon on a family farm in June 2012: David R. Lang shot and killed his brother Russell, at the residence they shared on the family farm on Lake Road in Crown Point. Both David and Russell were lifelong Crown Point residents. This horrific incident was David’s first criminal offense of any type. Family and friends have always contended that this was an alcohol-fueled tragic accident. They obviously knew first hand, the love and destructive enabling that existed between their brothers. Jury selection was to begin on July 8, 2013. But on June 5, David was brought to the court, unbeknownst to any in his family. Judge Meyer started the hearing by stating his wishes to have David Lang’s trial to begin in a week’s time because another case on his docket had been cleared. David Lang’s Public Defender, Brandon Boutelle, protested the one week notice, citing evidentiary items were still being gathered and expert testimony, on David’s blood alcohol level at the time of the shooting incident, were still not in. After a barrage of questioning by Judge Meyer, as to wether he would even allow such an expert to appear in his courtroom, a recess was called. Within the short recess, out of public eyes, a plea agreement was reached. No call was made or attempted to contact the victim’s family. Because that family was also Dave’s family. On the afternoon of Aug. 8, sentencing began with the theatrics of a district attorney on the verge of her third electoral bid. Her lust for winning overshadowed any compassion or decency towards the surviving family. She construed a soliloquy of how events transpired on that fateful day in June 2012. But DA Sprague’s timeline of events was riddled with suppositions that did not come out at trial (there was none) or acknowledged in any plea deal. With all of David’s family and friend in attendance, sitting behind him, DA. Sprague mocked letters sent to the court pleading for leniency. The court had received numerous letters from David (and Russell’s) family, friends, community and beyond. Sprague made reference that lacking in all of these correspondences was compassion for the deceased of the two brothers. She stated that all concern in the letters was for David and not Russell. She mocked one letter that included references to other examples of alcohol-infused family tragedies that had received leniency. I find DA Sprague’s comments appalling and completely insensitive to this much respected and private family. Judge Meyer obviously agreed with the DA in sentencing David to the maximum 15 years in state prison with 5 years probation following. Dave will be 91 years old by then. The surviving family’s wishes for leniency was first mocked then ignored. Society at large will not be a better or safer place with David locked up. Public Defender Boutelle stated that senior citizens locked up in prisons share an exorbitant amount of the money spent on prisoners due to their failing health and old age. David spent an entire 70 years in Crown Point, without any criminal history. He is a friend to many. His severe alcohol addiction (coinciding with Russell’s) led to this family tragedy. Can’t we as a community have compassion on this well respected family? In a compassionate society, that could think out of the box, in extraordinary circumstances, such as these, could surely could come up with a way to serve the public good. I am struck with a vision that David could have been rehabilitated with alcohol treatment and confinement to his own property. Home confinement, coupled with alcohol and movement ankle bracelets, could have been an out-of-the-box punishment rather then what amounts to a life sentence in a state penitentiary, with the most hardened and violent live-long offenders. Taxpayers would not have had the burden of paying for David’s end of life care and needs. When might thoughtfulness come into play instead of the Draconian incarceration of a first-time senior citizen offender? Why shouldn’t the victim’s family be kept apprised by the DA, of any court appearances and plea deals, even when they are similarly related to the defendant? Why shouldn’t their feelings be considered when rendering comments and sentence upon the defendant? So in going forward, can we assume that DA Sprague, when faced with a similar case, involving a tragedy within one family, that she will disregard and even mock the surviving kin? In her mission statement it reads: Ò The DA and her staff realize that all victims deserve to be treated with compassion and respect.Ó That is not what I witnessed in the courtroom.

Schroon celebration a success To the Times of Ti: To all the people who had so generously helped with the Fourth of July festivities, please accept my sincere apologies for getting this letter out so late. Time has just flown by and here it is almost the middle of August. People retire to relax and enjoy life but it seems we are busier than we were when we were working. Anyway, I would like to extend my sincere thanks to all the people that helped to make the Fourth of July in Schroon Lake the success that it was. The Lord cooperated, as he has for the last four years that I have been doing the day’s festivities and parade. He gave us beautiful weather, a blue bird day, my husband would call it. All the vendors in the park had a very successful day and the music all day long was wonderful. Thank you to all of the people involved with all of that. I know that children and

adults alike had a great time all day long and then the parade at 6 p.m. was also great. Again, the weather was great, a little hot but OK. We were lucky enough to have six bands in the parade this year and everyone loves the music. It was one of the largest parades we have had and I have received so much positive feedback about the whole parade and the whole days events. I would also like to thank Mike Marnell, town supervisor, and the town board for making arrangements for the barge for the fireworks so that we did not have to put up the fencing this year, I also received positive feedback about that from the community plus the vendors. Thank you to The Word of Life and The Seagle Colony, they out did themselves this year with the wonderful concert Ò on the beach again this yearÓ yea! That concert makes me cry every year, it boosts my thanks for the freedom we are able to enjoy, thanks to all the men and women who serve in our armed forces at home and abroad. There are so many people that I need to thank but this letter is already way too long but they all know who they are. I would especially like to thank Jon and Deirdre Schrader for all their help. I could not have accomplished all of this without their help. Deirdre does all the computer work and The Word of Life prints the programs (thank you), Deirdre and Jon also does the line up of the parade with a few helpers and that is no easy task. And I could not forget to thank my husband John, again without his help, I could not have accomplished all of this. I hold the title of chairwoman, but so many people behind the scene is my support system and my helpers. And most of all, I would like to thank you, the community, all the people who donate to the Fourth of July fund, without your donations none of this could be accomplished. The Schroon Lake Fourth of July festivities and parade is funded strictly by donations and each year you have become more generous and more people are donating. So thank you, thank you, thank you! Donations come in from all over the country, literally. I look forward to another successful year in 2014. Thank all of you again and may God bless all of you and may God bless America and our continued freedom. Kate Huston, chairwoman Schroon Lake Fourth of July

Family thankful To the Times of Ti: We are so thankful for all who participated in the Ò Sweets For Henry” fundraiser. We can’t thank the faculty, staff and students of Crown Point Central who organized this event enough for their efforts and support. They all made us proud to be graduates of CPCS. It is simple acts of kindness that we have been continually blessed throughout the time we spent in the hospital with our son. We had lots of ups and downs, but with the support of so many we were able to worry about fewer things. Most importantly, we want to thank everyone for their prayers. It is God’s promise that gave us strength each and every single day. Henry Ñ who was born 10 weeks premature, weighing 2 pounds, 13 ounces Ñ is truly a gift from God and we are lucky to see him get better with each day. Thank you all again and we are truly grateful to all who have helped us care for our son. After a 72-day stay at Fletcher Allen we are now home enjoying all the special moments of being new parents! We hope in time that we can thank you all personally. Brian, Catherine and Henry Pelkey Bloomingdale

Ti firefighters busy To the Times of Ti: As expected with the summer season in full swing July was our busiest month this year. It started off somberly and our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to the family of William Wallace who tragically drowned in Lake George. We responded to a total of 28 incidents throughout the month that included nine motor vehicle accidents, four commercial fire alarms, three power lines down along with 11 other miscellaneous emergencies. Our membership totaled 180.4 man hours for all emergencies. In addition to responding to the emergencies we also conducted five weekly training drills that totaled 190 man hours. We also participated in the Best Fourth in the North parade, stood by for the fireworks and assisted with traffic control after the fireworks. We also had an information booth set up during Streetfest. We strongly encourage anyone who rents a house or apartment to obtain renters insurance. It is very economical and a must for everyone. A common misconception is that the apartment owner has insurance and while this may be true it only covers the building and the owners personal property, not any renters. The house or apartment building owner can only insure what they own so therefore renters need to insure their personal property. Anyone interested in information about the fire department or about becoming a member can stop by the firehouse any Tuesday and Thursday nights at 7 or contact any member. Matt Watts, First Assistant Chief Ticonderoga Fire Department

Hague Fire Department gets landscaping HAGUE — DeFranco Landscaping’s crew donated their time recently to clean-up the shrub beds around the Hague fire house. DeFranco’s crew perform annual spring and summer maintenance consisting of weeding the beds, pruning the perennial shrubs and flowers, edging and mulching the beds. David DeFranco donated the initial landscape installation back in 2000 when the new fire house was constructed. The Hague Fire Department placed a plaque on the building recognizing their contribution. DeFranco has provided pro-bona landscaping services for the Hague Volunteer Fire Department’s fire house annually ever since. Ò It is the least that we can do for the Hague Fire Department and its members who donate so much of their time to the community,Ó DeFranco said. Ò These volunteers have full-time jobs and still find time in their busy schedules to sacrifice their time and service to keep our community safe. The entire community relies on these individuals.Ó

DeFranco is a former Hague Central School and Ticonderoga Middle School science teacher who started DeFranco Landscaping, Inc. in 1984, a full-service professional landscaping company that is located in Hague. The company specializes in servicing properties along the Lake George shoreline and surrounding Adirondack region. DeFranco Landscaping was the recipient of the 2010 Frank Leonbruno Memorial Lake Stewardship Award from the Lake George Watershed Coalition for use of native plants in their landscape design. Their landscape designs have even been featured in such books as Ò GARDENS-Adirondack StyleÓ by Janet Loughrey. Pictured at right: Randy West of DeFranco Landscaping applies mulch to shrub beds.

Moriah criminals sentenced ELIZABETHTOWN Ñ A woman who admitted stealing from a Moriah business will serve six months in the Essex County Jail.

Meagan M. Whitman, 29, of Mineville was also sentenced by Judge Richard Meyer in Essex County Court to five years of probation for the conviction of felony fourth-degree grand larceny. She confessed to stealing $33,000 from Bryant’s Lumber between August 2008 and March 2010 while employed there as a bookkeeper. Whitman paid $31,000 in restitution at the time of sentencing, with the remaining money to be delivered within 12 months. She was also ordered to provide a DNA sample while in jail, plus pay a $50 DNA database fee and a $300 surcharge. Meyer also issued an eight-year stay-away order of protection on behalf of Charles and Colleen Bryant and their business. Whitman had pleaded guilty in March. A charge of misdemeanor first-degree falsifying business records was merged as part of a plea agreement. Whitman was already in jail, her release on her own recognizance having been revoked at a previous hearing in May. She was given credit for time served and returned to the jail to continue serving her sentence.

Port Henry fire sentencing Joseph P. King, 44, of Port Henry was sentenced to 4 to 12 years in state prison, plus one year each on the five misdemeanors, with the sentences to be served concurrently by Judge Richard Meyer in Essex County Court.

August 17, 2013 King had earlier pleaded guilty to felony third-degree arson and several misdemeanor charges as part of a plea agreement. He set a fire Jan. 1, 2012, that caused $1 million in damage to downtown Port Henry. The misdemeanors include criminal mischief, obstructing firefighting operations, aggravated driving while intoxicated and two counts of reckless endangerment. Police said King had a 0.19 blood-alcohol-content reading, more than twice the legal limit of 0.08. Meyer fined King $1,000 each on the misdemeanors, plus $15,000 restitution, which the judge said is the maximum allowed by statute in this case. King was assessed $1,500 and $300 surcharges, along with a $50 state DNA database fee. King was a former employee of Mountain Lake Services who had been fired three years before the Jan. 1, 2012, fires for smoking marijuana on the job, officials said. He drove into downtown Port Henry just before midnight that day and set several fires around the village. As firefighters arrived to battle the Main Street blaze, King drove his compact car through fire lines at Main and Broad streets, running over hoses and ladders and brushing several firefighters, almost hitting others. He was apprehended by Essex County Sheriff’s Department deputies and state police after he turned his car around on Broad Street near Moriah Central School and tried to drive back for another pass.

North Hudson business seeks help to keep signage

FAIR SPECIALS! Come see us at the Come see us at the Washington County Fair! Greenwich, NY • 8/19/13 - 8/25/13 Located By The Pulling Track

By Keith Lobdell ELIZABETHTOWN Ñ Doreen Ossenkops of North Hudson believes that businesses in the Adirondack Park are being discriminated against. That is what she told members of the Essex County Board of Supervisors when she addressed them Aug. 5 to voice concern about being told to remove signage for her business, the Adirondack Buffalo Company, from near the exit ramp off Exit 29 of the Adirondack Northway (I-87). Ossenkops told the board that she had previously taken the signs down under a previous state Department of Transportation order but put them back up after her state representative told her it was okay. Ò (Sen.) Betty Little told us that a law had been passed and because we were a local farm, that we were able to put the signs back up,Ó Ossenkops said. “Then we received notification to take down our signs or we would be fined $100,000 per day and we would be charged with the removal and disposal of them.Ó Ossenkops said the signage has made a big difference for her business. Ò Since the signs went back up, our business has gone up dramatically,Ó she said. Ò I feel business people in the Adirondack Park are being discriminated against. No other part of the state has to deal with this. It is not only a hardship for us but for all of the businesses in the Adirondacks that cannot have signs up to let people know how to get there.Ó Ossenkops said the state gave her an extension until Labor Day to remove the signs, but in her mind, more needs to be done. Ò We did get an extension, which will help us with the summer month but will not help us in the fall, which is normally a busy time for us,Ó she said. Ò I want to put in my two cents for the businesses not only in Essex County but throughout the Adirondack Park that we feel we are being discriminated against.Ó The county board agreed with Ossenkops, passing a resolution, Ò urging New York State to amend transportation law to allow signage on exit and entrance ramps on the Adirondack Northway within the Adirondack Park.Ó

Crown Point man sentenced to 15 years By Katherine Clark ELIZABETHTOWN Ñ Family members of David Lang cried and called out Ò I love you DaveÓ to him as he was removed from

the court room on Aug. 8 after the 71-year-old was sentenced to 15 years in prison with five years post supervision for killing his brother. Lang pleaded guilty to the charge of first-degree manslaughter. In June he had reached a plea agreement in Essex County Court that lowered the charge from the original charge of second degree murder. As part of his plea agreement, Judge Richard B. Meyer agreed to a sentence of no less than 10 years and no more than 15 years with five years of probation. During sentencing, Essex County District Attorney Kristy Sprague asked for the maximum allowable sentence to be imposed. Ò David Lang decided to pick up that gun and kill Russell, and Russell didn’t die immediately. Not one point did the defendant go over to him or try to offer support, medically or emotionally. He placed a very cold, lack of emotion 911 call. At no time did he show any remorse through the recording that I listened to,Ó said Sprague. Members of Lang’s family had written several letters to the court on behalf of David, asking for the minimum sentence of 10 years. Ò What is also throughout these letters missing is Russell. Russell seems to be the forgotten person here. Ò Poor David this, Poor David thatÓ At no point do we hear any remorse or any mourning of Russell,” said Sprague. “So I’m here to be that voice for Russell Lang.Ó Lang’s attorney, Chief public defender Brandon Boutelle, argued that Lang had lived 70 years with a clean criminal record and his family was reaching out to the court to grant them the comfort of his company. Ò From these letters you get a sense of the mentality of this family, it is very hard for that generation to express emotion,Ó said Boutelle. Ò They still see they have David and are holding onto some hope of his company before his final days.” Boutelle said it is evident from the brother’s life-long cohabita-


August 17, 2013 tion that David had compassion for Russell. Stating that due to David’s bad back, Russell stepped in and helped with the farm work and David financially supported Russell through his Social Security checks. “They filled wholes in eachothers lives,” said Boutelle. David Lang decided to speak on his own behalf before the sentence was handed down. “I am not a perfect man, I’m truly sorry, I’ve always loved my brother,Ó said Lang, then he said thank you. Meyer said there was no basis for the court to show anymore mercy to Lang than has already been shown, given the reduced charge. Meyer said if not for the plea agreement he felt a punishment of 40 to 60 percent higher was called for and felt 15 years was the appropriate sentence. Meyer said at no point during the trial did he see or read evidence that this was a crime of passion. He had to also send a message to anyone out there, whether they be elderly or 20 years old there will be consequences if they decide to fire a gun at someone. The Crown Point man admitted to shooting and killing his brother, Russell Lang, in the head on June 19, 2012, following an argument at the farmhouse they shared at 325 Lake Road in Crown Point. Russell, 63, was found in the driveway and was taken to Moses-Ludington Hospital in Ticonderoga in critical condition. He was transferred to Fletcher Allen Health Care in Burlington, where he died on June 20. Following the sentence, friend of the family Thomas Tendy called the sentence a Ò disgraceÓ and left the court room. Tendy said he felt David had been Ò railroadedÓ during the court proceedings. Sprague released a statement following the court ruling that said, Ò This was a tough case from the brother taking the life of another. This family has been devastated and now they basically have lost their other brother. This was a senseless and horrific act and although this sentence cannot begin to heal this family, it will insure that the public is safe and the defendant is held accountable for what he did.Ó

Have we lost our senses? A clover patch that was mowed to allow sun in. Photo by Rich Redman

Summer food plots


he other day I saw some young turkeys out in a field feeding on grasshoppers and other bugs. The young birds were foraging for the protein and energy they need to grow. Like Bear says, bugs are good! Deer are starting to feed on the slowly changing color of green to red apples. Apples are loaded with sugars, which are excellent energy sources for putting on the pounds. Food is the primary concern of all animals. InBy Rich Redman stinctively they know that they need to gain as much weight as possible to make it through another winter. Putting on weight for animals may be hard, for me, keeping it off is the problem. I need to work out like Arnold Schwarzenegger to keep the weight off, but that is another tale to tell. Protein, carbohydrates, fats and minerals are all needed to increase weight and to have energy to make it through a long cold night, especially up here in the North Country. If you live near a farm, corn, soybeans, alfalfa, clovers and tree crops like apples and acorns and tree browse will supply much of what an animal needs. Grasses, clovers and weeds that are mature with a seed head supply food to the seed eating birds. In the woods it’s another story. Quality food is scarce, especially in an unmanaged forest, like Blue Line State Land. In unmanaged lands, shade covers the ground in many places and prevents plants like raspberries, and other food plants from growing. Nature takes it course on unmanaged land. Many private forest owners nowadays want to do more than just let nature take its course. They want to supplement the food supply on their property by cutting openings where the sun reaches the ground to stimulate the growth of berries, and other plants that ground feeding animals prefer. Another option is to plant a food plot of clover, brassicas, rye, chicory, and alfalfa if you have the right pH. With the heat of the summer over, and the fall rains coming, it’s time to get that food plot in the ground. Old headers and log roads work great for food plots. First, you plow or rake all the logging trash to the downhill side so the trash won’t stop you from mowing the site. Keep it clean. Try to keep some of the smaller organic material so the soil mix holds more water. A York rake works well for this. Add compost to hold moisture and add slow release nutrients. Make sure you have a soil test so you put on what the plant needs, not what you think it needs. Once you have the soil test completed, find a nice mix of the type of forage you want to plant. There are numerous internet sites with all kinds of different food plot information you may want to try. Once again check the label on the bag so you follow what the company recommends for that particular planting. A hand spreader or small spinner applies the seed evenly. You can also use it for fertilizer and lime if it’s a small plot. Fertilize and lime for quality, our soils are not especially rich up here. Get the planting in as soon as possible, so it has enough time to establish a sound rooting system and build up energy to make it through the winter, just like the animals. Plant the clovers in the wetter spots and chicory is OK in the dryer sites. Try a variety of plantings; don’t put all your eggs in one basket as the saying goes. Variety is the spice of life, and insures that you have a crop in case one fails. Don’t mix all the seed together and try a shotgun mix, not good! Brassicas stay separate, clover and chicory can go together. Clover alone is a great food plot. Follow the recommendations on the seed bag. If you planted a food plot in spring, take a look at it and see if the grasses are getting ahead of the clovers. Clover needs sun and you need to clip, mow or weed whack the grasses to allow the sun to penetrate the clover patch. I was working with a guy and we mowed his grass clover mix a few weeks ago. The clovers are doing well. I repeat, fertilize and lime for quality, our soils are not especially rich up here. If you want a long term food plot, try planting some apple trees and other fruit trees along with berry bushes that will supply energy to your wildlife. Crab apples, wild apples, wild raisin, blueberries, dogwoods, oaks and beech will supply fruit and nuts to your critters. If you plant trees, make sure you have a large root ball with plenty of compost so the plant handles the transplanting shock. I like to plant just before a good soaking rain and cool temperatures. Spring transplants are best, but fall ones work if you do it carefully. For grouse, aspen buds are the prime food source. If you have large popple or aspen in your wood lot, cut them down in the winter when the roots have all the energy stored. Create a large clear area so the new growth of root suckers gets plenty of sun. Young thick stands of aspen intermixed with apple and other fruit trees provides some great habitat. It will take 10 years to get a young stand thick for birds, but wildlife management is not quick and easy. Like a fine wild apple hard cider, it takes time and planning to do it right. Planting a food plot is something everyone should try in their field or woodlot. It will provide additional food for the animals and provide you an enjoyable time in the field or woods. Catlins feed supply in Ticonderoga and Bob Duprey’s in Chazy can get you just about anything you may need. Many other stores like Tractor Supply, Gander Mountain, Seedway in Vermont and the Whitetail Institute can supply you with a quality food plot mix. I prefer to buy from my local guys and so should you. Keep the money close to home! Whether you hunt, shoot with a camera, or just like to observe the fruits of your labor and the animals enjoying those fruits, it doesn’t matter to me. Plant a food plot, sit back and dig on life.



Banner Pines provide evidence of prevailing winds, which typically come from the west. As a result, elongated limbs can typically be found pointing to the east.


ong before such technological advancements as electronic Global Positioning Systems, or even the magnetic compass, travelers knew how to rely upon simple observations of natural patterns to assist them in orienting their travels and to help predict the weather. Travelers understood the natural weather signs and were accustomed to learning the lay of the land in order to avoid being caught off-guard by the elements. Regular observation allowed them to become attuned to the waters, sky, air, as well as the behavior of animals, birds, insects and even the trees. Unfortunately, in recent times humans have increasingly lost touch with the natural world. The vast majority of humans can no longer be considered natural travelers. Increasingly, modern man has grown out of touch with his natural surroundings. It should come as no surprise, as we have lost the need to use our senses. We cover up from head to toe with a hat on our head and socks and shoes muffling our feet. We plug an iPod into our ears, and set a pair of dark sunglasses on our nose. As travelers, we have effectively shuttered our natural senses, and as a result we often fail to recognize all that is happening in our surroundings. Our hearing is dampened, as is our touch, feel, vision and balance. Of course, we are masked and overpowered by the acceptable amount of deodorant, after shave, perfume, shampoo, mouthwash and scented soap we use to disguise our own. After clearing, cleaning, masking and eliminating any of the natural scents and senses that may have been accumulated, we continue to cover-up any exposed skin that might offer us a natural hint of what is to come. Is it any surprise that modern day society has become so totally disconnected from the natural world? At one time, it was a unique combination of natural observation and orientation that made it possible for humans to reliably predict the weather, and to accurately determine their correct direction of travel. It was a perspective that was typically based on an intuitive knowledge of the local landscape, as well as regular observations of weather, animals and other natural signs. In the Adirondack region, natural clues of orientation are abundant for those who know how to read them. Most of the lakes are oriented south to north, as a result of scouring that occurred as the glaciers retreated. The local mountain-tops also sport the same long, gouge lines that were etched by the scraping of rocks under the retreating glaciers. They were carved in a similar north/south orientation as a result of the glacial retreat. If the lands and the waters fail to provide proper opportunities, there are still many other natural features available on the natural compass. The sun still rises in the east, and continues to set in the west, due to the natural counterclockwise rotation of the earth. The moon also rises in the east. This rotation is responsible for delivering the majority of our wind and weather patterns from the west. The prevailing wind tends to tip the tops of our tall white pines toward an easterly direction. These trees are known as banner pines. Another well established natural directional sign is moss, which typically grows thickest on the shaded, north side of a tree. However, moss can be found on any side of a tree depending on the shade provided by other surrounding

trees. Wind or storm damage can also twist the trunk of a tree after moss has been established. Despite such anomalies, moss typically grows thickest on the north side of a tree because it is shaded and gets the least direct sunshine. It is the same reason snow stays longer and is often deeper on the north facing slopes. North facing slopes are usually colder and shadier during the fall, winter and spring when the sun is predominantly shining on the southern slopes. However, it is important to recognize that natural methods of direction aren’t infallible. Always look for more than one indicator when ascertaining a direction. If the sun, plants and wind all indicate the same thing, then chances are they can’t all be wrong!

Weather or Not

Similar to determining the proper orientation by observing natural indicators, many travelers have also forgotten how to predict the weather by observing the natural signs. Well before such modern tools as AccuWeather radar and satellite monitoring systems first evolved, travelers depended primarily on natural observations to predict the expected weather patterns. Fortunately, many still do. I’m very fortunate in this regard, as I happen to be very sensitive to air pressure. My ears begin to pop whenever a low pressure system approaches. However, I’ve also learned how to recognize many other natural signs that foretell foul weather, for which a campfire always provides a welcome aid. While sitting around a fire in the evening, it is easy to spot a ‘ring around the moon,’ which is usually a sure sign of rain, or snow depending on the season. Known as a corona, the ring is the result of a refraction of the moon’s light in ice crystals at a very high altitude. It typically indicates low pressure and foul weather are on the way. A sure sign that a low pressure system has arrived is often found closer to a fire ring, and it is more evident than looking for a ring around the moon. Typically, low pressure systems are accompanied by damp and musty scents, which cause smoke from a fire to hang close to the ground. This occurs because the heavy, moisture-laden smoke particles fail to disperse into the woods as easily as lighter, dry ones do. Humid air also carries scents far better than dry air. It is interesting to note that bog plants also release more oils as humidity climbs, which explains the old saying: “When a ditch or pond offends the nose, it’s time to look out for rain or stormy blows.Ó Joe Hackett is a guide and sportsman residing in Ray Brook.
