Ken Wiley opens show at Artists Guild By Katherine Clark

SARANAC LAKE Ñ Painter Ken Wiley, will invite visitors to share his journey during the past 50 years through his new exhibit Ò There & Here: Fifty Years.Ó The opening reception for the show of watercolor and acrylic paintings will be held Friday, Sept. 6 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Adirondack Artists Guild, 52 Main Street. The show, though titled as a culmination of the artistÕ s work over the past 50

years, will be a collection of recent works. “Every painting I do I see a flaw or a way I could have improved it,Ó Wiley said. Through his continued study of classical Renaissance and impressionist painters, Wiley has developed a style based on shadows and light, composition, a study of line, shape color, and texture. Ò By studying artists, we can emulate and reproduce the shapes in famous paintings but an artist can never recreate the color they put on the canvas,Ó Wiley said.

His exhibit, which will run through Sept. 29, will be a collection of his favorite subjects: architecture, portraiture, animals, flowers and most anything that catches his eye. Ò The subject matter isnÕ t what is important, for instance I donÕ t necessarily like flowers but I paint them because as an artist flowers are a source of immense color and pattern,Ó Wiley said. Ò There is no right or wrong when it comes to art and any decent work is an inspiration to me.Ó CONTINUED ON PAGE 3

ELIZABETHTOWN Ñ After years of lobbying the state, Essex County finally has a sales tax increase. Members of the county Board of Supervisors voted 17-0 during a special meeting Aug. 26 to increase their share of the sales tax from 3.75 percent to 4.00 percent. The increase brings the total sales tax figure to 8.0 percent with state and county combined. Westport Supervisor Dan Connell was unable to attend the meeting. The change will go into effect Dec. 1. Gov. Andrew Cuomo last week signed legislation allowing counties across the state to make the same increase to their sales tax, which County Manager Daniel Palmer said would reflect an added $2 million in revenue for Essex County. Ò I think that it is safe to say that this is something that is desperately needed,Ó Palmer said. “That figure represents about 12 percent of the tax levy that will now be raised through sales tax. It is the change you guys have been fighting for over the last four or five years.” Ò The amount that we will be taken in and the amount that equals on the tax levy is something that is important for people to know,Ó Elizabethtown Margaret Bartley said. The increase will put Essex County on par with neighbors Clinton and Franklin County, which were already imposing the 4 percent county sales tax (8 percent total with the state share) and will help the county make up for lost revenue from other state and federal funds.

Garden Club calander set to be exposed at ‘coming out’ party LAKE PLACID Ñ The Garden Club of Lake Placid extends an invitation to an exclusive, first edition preview party of its controversial calendar, Babes in Blooms. The second floor of NicolaÕ s Restaurant will be the site from 7-9 pm, Sunday night, Sept 1. The party will be the Adirondack version of a, Ò Coming Out Party,Ó a Hollywood opening combined with the Miss (or Mrs.) America Pageant. Proceeds from calendar sales will be used for the continued beautification of Lake Placid. As public gardens and plantings have expanded, the need for physical help and money has grown accordingly. Plant prices have also escalated. The Garden ClubÕ s sister organization, Lake Placid Community Beautification Association (LPCBA) founded by Conni Cross, has the ability to hire seasonal help for planting, maintaining, placing and removing our hanging baskets, barrels and many public gardens. This past season, however, the LPCBA had to cut back on some of its creations because of financial constraints. Except for printing, the calendar is an all-volunteer enterprise with models, photographers, venue and prop providers donating their time, talent and/or space. The cost of admission is the price of a calendar, $12.95. A promotional discount of “Two for $25,” will also be offered to alleviate Christmas, birthday or house present dilemmas. Models with sashes denoting month posed for and photographers with arm bands will circulate to sign their months if requested. All guests are assured of finding a model from their own decade as models range in age from 18 through 80. Jak Beardsworth, Marcy Doyle Miller, Karen Edgley and Jamie Rogers will be among celebrity bartenders to serve wine and beer at Happy Hour prices. Complimentary snacks will also be available.

Chris Irwin coming to Placid Adirondack Canoe Classic to benefit cooridor work LAKE PLACID Ñ Chris Irwin, best selling author of ÒH orses DonÕ t Lie,Ó and ÒD ancing with Your Dark Horse,Ó motivational speaker and CanadaÕ s internationally-renowned Òh orse whisperer,Ó will demonstrate his innovative work in The Lake Placid Dark Horse Challenge at Snowslip Farm in Lake Placid Sept. 19, at 6:30 p.m. In preparation for the evening event, a ÒS earch for the Ultimate Dark Horse,Ó will begin in August. Any horse in upstate New York and Vermont with extreme emotional and behavioral difficulties is eligible for nomination. In his seminars and workshops for corporate leadership, sports psychology, mentoring for disadvantaged youth, programs for first responders and military veterans suffering with PTSD, rehabilitation programs for prison inmates and even team-building workshops with nuclear physicists, IrwinÕ s timely and unique message is clear. Now a recognized clinician, trainer and coach of novice to Olympic-level equestrians, IrwinÕ s interests have evolved into strengthening the age-old bond between horses and humans into a path for personal empowerment that reaches beyond the borders of the equestrian world. The horse search criteria is horses from anywhere in upstate New York or Vermont Mature at least 2 years of age - any breed or gender Phys-

SARANAC LAKE Ñ One war canoe, three days, eight paddlers, 90 miles.

Also known as the 90-Miler, the race course goes from Old Forge to Saranac Lake and is the first 90 miles of the 740-mile Northern Forest Canoe Trail, the nationÕ s longest water trail. The fundraiser will support NFCTÕ s work in the 90-miler corridor (Old Forge to Saranac Lake). Donations will help the nonprofit organization deliver its core program areas in the region: Northern Forest Explorers, providing week-long paddling experiences for local 10-14 year olds giving them an opportunity to develop strength, confidence, and a kinship with their local lakes and rivers.; Trail Stewardship, establishing and caring for access, portage trails, and campsites; and Trail Towns, assisting local partners to benefit from the Trail.

White Pine Camp to host plein air camp


Continued from page 1 It is this study of colors that he hopes will inspire a reaction. Ò Painting is designed to hold and keep the eye,Ó Wiley said. Ò Color and itÕ s atmosphere hopefully cause an experience, it doesnÕ t have to be physical or a feeling.Ó Wiley began his artistic career with a question: should he study history or art? The Brooklyn/New Jersey born and raised artist made the choice to be an artist. Ò When it came down to it, I looked at history and knew I loved it but I didnÕ t know if I would become stale to me in 30 years, so I thought making art would still be new to me and challenging for me,Ó Wiley said. After graduating with his masters degree, Wiley took a job at the North Country Community College (NCCC) as one of the first faculty members. Ò When I came to interview for the position, the sun was shining and it was a clear day and of course there was snow everywhere, it looked so beautiful so I took the job and IÕ ve been here ever since,Ó Wiley said. At NCCC, Wiley taught an array of art courses, such as drawing, design, painting, photography, art appreciation, art history, sculpture courses and more. Ò One opportunity I had at the community college that I couldnÕ t have gotten if I had worked at, say, the university in Plattsburgh is I got to teach so many courses that at the time I had never studied, so I learned by figuring out how to illustrate the subjects to my students,Ó Wiley said. Ò I learned more in the first years of teaching than I ever had learning on my own for nine years of my craft.Ó Ò It was a different course all the time,Ó Wiley said. Ò So you never got tired of what you were doing.Ó One of the things Wiley said might surprise people who come to his show is that he is not an Ò Adirondack Artist.Ó His subject matter, though it often consists of Adirondack images like local homes, objects that one might find in any Adirondack home or an outdoor scene, is a mix of places he has traveled to. HeÕ s painted a market place in Tanzania; a night scene at a modern looking gas station which jumped out to him like a futuristic space station with an air of science fiction; portraits painted in an Andy Warhol style such as Ò Dance Master,Ó and most anything he sees that jumps out at him to be recreated. There is a signature style in both his acrylic and water color pieces. Wiley said his watercolor paintings are more

realistic in shapes and colors, but watercolors arenÕ t a medium for abstract work. He said working with acrylic paints offers more freedom with the brush strokes. Ò Ideally, the American Water Color society has said there has to be a transparency through the color and we canÕ t use opaque colors. White in the paintings should be the white of the paper,Ó Wiley said. Ò You can use acrylics to create more body, acrylics have their own techniques.Ó Through his explorations of art, his love of history, and his study for instructing art, Wiley has combined the three elements in his style reflective of artists from another time period. Ò I wish I was born in the Re-

naissance era when all of the great masterpieces were made, I canÕ t pin point my favorite but to me you get from all art a gamut,Ó Wiley said. Some of his favorite styles have been inspired by the work of Michael Angelo, Renaissance painter Pieter Brueghel, impressionist James Tissot, Pablo Picasso and Jackson Pollock. Ò Unfortunately my interest in artistic styles stops at the Ô 70Õ s, after that time period I feel the artists try to do something close to Ô anti-artÕ to be considered modern art,Ó Wiley said. Ò I would say I am a traditionalist.Ó For more information about Wiley or to see examples of his work go to

SARANAC LAKE Ñ White Pine Camp will be hosting a plein air painting workshop exploring methods of painting outdoors with pastelist Diane Leifheit and watercolor/oil painter Tim Fortune on Osgood Pond in Paul Smiths in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. The five-day painting workshop will take place Sept. 22-27, at the near peak of the Adirondack color season. Diane Leifheit and Tim Fortune will demonstrate methods of painting, provide instruction in composition and design, preparation for painting the landscape using pastel, oil and watercolor. Workshop artists will paint the landscape and participate in dayÕ s end critiques in the tradition of the great camp artists

and philosophers who ventured to the Adirondack lakes and mountains in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Artists and their non-painting partners may lodge in the well appointed rustic cabins and take advantage of painting early morning fall sunrises on the pond as well as explore the network of trails and buildings that lace through the property. The public is invited Thursday, Sept. 28, from 4 to 7 p.m. to a Meet-the-Artists Plein Air Artists Showcase Reception, which will feature a guided tour of the camp, and discussion of plein air painting. The lodge will feature the works of Leifheit and Fortune and the working artists.

Sales tax

sor Tom Scozzafava said. Ò I am sure none of us want to impose an additional tax, but this is a much more fair way to do so.Ó Ò I canÕ t ever remember personally saying that I would rather go to this restaurant and eat because it is only at 7.75 percent instead of 8,” Newcomb Supervisor George Canon said. Ò This is not something that Gov. Cuomo took lightly,Ó Board Chair and Jay Supervisor Randy Douglas said. Ò This is one that we felt that home rule was important. He reached out to truly understand what this meant to small communities like ours.Ó Douglas also thanked the local state representatives for helping to get the measure signed by Cuomo, including Sen. Betty Little, Assemblyman Dan Stec and former Assemblywoman Teresa Sayward. He also thanked Manning, Palmer and County Treasurer Michael Diskin for their involvement.

Continued from page 1 “Since 2008, the county has lost approximately $4.5 million in revenue sources from state and federal funds,Ó Palmer said. Ò Essex County is a tourism-driven county. We have over a million visitors that come in on an annual basis. This increase is an opportunity to collect more revenue from those visitors.Ó County Attorney Dan Manning said vendors in the county would be notified through mail of the change as well as through advertising. Ò This will give businesses enough time to switch over their machines,Ó he said. Some supervisors expressed their approval for the resolution before voting. Ò A tax is a tax, but this is certainly not as regressive as property tax is,Ó Moriah Supervi-

The death toll from 9/11 continues to rise


n Sept. 11, 2001, 2,606 people were killed when terrorists dive bombed the twin towers in New York City, both inside and outside the buildings. Another 266 died aboard the four hijacked airliners. But the real untold story is that a total of 4,252 people have actually perished as a result of the deadly attack Ñ and they are still dying today. In the years since that devastating day, at least 1,400 first responders have died as a direct result of illnesses caused by the toxic cloud that engulfed lower Manhattan for months after the attack. An estimated 19,000 are now sick or dying. Thats the dirty little secret that politicians donÕ t want to talk about, and very few people even know about. When the twin towers went down, uniformed first responders and civilians alike flocked to Ground Zero hoping to help in whatever way they could. State and Federal agencies, the National Guard and the Red Cross brought people in from around the country. The air, they were told, was safe. The head of the Environmental Protection Agency, Christine Todd Whitman herself, took to the airways to reassure people. Lower Manhattan had to re-open for business Ñ thatÕ s where the stock market is after all. Try to bring your old computer to the landfill and throw it away. You can’t. It’s against the law. Why? Because of all the chemicals and hazardous materials that are inside. Now picture the fact that every desk in every office in the twin towers had a computer on it, and they all burned in the fire after the towers fell, releasing toxic vapors that hung in the air for months. Plus there was cement dust, asbestos, and

burned plastic. But the air was safe to breath, responders were told. The first wave of illnesses and deaths following 9/11 were lung related. The second wave, which many experts warned about at the time, is cancer. Of the 19,000 sick responders, roughly 2,000 have a certified form of cancer. Many others have cancers that have not been officially recognized as being related to 9/11. And this doesnÕ t count an unknown number of people who fell ill or have died, but didnÕ t relate it to their time at Ground Zero. In 2010 Congress grudgingly passed the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act, setting up a Victims Compensation Fund for responders, but not until billions of dollars were slashed from the fund in order to overcome a Republican filibuster. October 3 is the deadline for registering with the Victims Compensation Fund. People who were at Ground Zero, whether they were first responders or civilian volunteers, are being urged to register with the program, even if they are not currently sick. Anyone who develops a 9/11-related illness on Oct. 4 who is not registered, will be entitled to nothing. Of the 19,000 people registered with the VictimÕ s Compensation Fund, 12,000 are not from the tri-state area. There are 435 congressional districts in the United States, and 430 of them have at least one registered 9/11 responder. This is a national problem, and one that is not going to go away no matter how much politicians wish to ignore it. Americans are still dying as a direct result of the 9/11 attacks, and more are likely to become sick as the years go by. ItÕ s not something we can afford to put in the rear view mirror and hope it goes away.

Guest viewpoint

There is a better plan for North Country Community College Welcome Center With reference to remarks made by Village of Saranac Lake Trustee Allie Pelletieri published in the Adirondack Daily Enterprise on July 13, 2012, who gave good reasons to oppose the proposed NCCC project. And an Adirondack Daily Enterprise 600 word editorial of July 25, 2012 Ð Ò College should explore options for welcome center.Ó Plus a letter to the editor from Joseph Blitt dated June 5 questioning a conflict of interest. Also a Press Republican article of Aug. 4, Ò Welcome Center Questioned,Ò Quotes from Franklin County Legislature Paul Maroun, who said, in part, about Rabideau Corporation, owned by Saranac Lake Mayor Clyde Rabideau Ð Ò Will it go out to bid?,Ó Ò It doesnÕ t look good, it doesnÕ t sound right, and it doesnÕ t smell right,Ó and Ò There may be something wrong with it É .Ó I agree with these four pieces and would like to offer a better idea for NCCC Welcome Center. The bottom line is the decisions should be narrowed down to using River Street Hall (a former grade school). I would like to propose that the Welcome Center be placed in your own River Street hall property. It is a natural. It has location, parking, 10,000 square feet of space, three stories, historic charm and an appropriate look for a treasured former school obviously being recycled to continue good works efficiently, with fiscal consideration. The building is in operation but needs some renovation which perhaps could be done in the present budget. It requires NO variances, NO new zoning, NO need for a new road, NO loss of tax base, NO purchase of two homes to demolish to make another entrance to the college from an already crowded street. The village board would be wise to reconsider this plan. It is not complete enough to be acted upon until more fundamental information and costs are provided. The many advantages are obvious. It is an excellent well-built building on a large lot with plenty of parking that is all paid for, which was a gift to the college. It is a good appropriate building well located, built with brick, on level land with high visibility from Lake Flower Avenue, and has good access to the campus on three streets. Students could easily and safely walk or drive to the main buildings. It has a large parking lot, restrooms, and much space. Through the years River Street Hall has served several purpos-

es and has an additional building, formerly used for classrooms at the rear. There are three floors and a basement which could accommodate and continue its present other uses for children, etc. This is a very substantial, dignified, three story brick building with excellent views of Lake Flower and mountains. Many improvements have been made such as new high efficiency windows, heavy duty electric power supply, a new stand by generator, two vehicle entrances, steel fire escape, three exits on main floor, several sidewalks to main campus, and relatively level. Iy has a perfect location for high visibility sign from Lake Flower Avenue at the corner of River Street. The present site of the college has many disadvantages. One of the reasons this site was originally chosen was the hospital board gave it to the college. A political decision, controlled largely by the Essex County Board of Supervisors and the Franklin County Legislature. The location was the choice of our two local counties and by Mr. Jim Loeb, the then owner of the Adirondack Daily Enterprise. I am very familiar with the NCCC site, which was the former general hospital. My qualifications for making these statements are: I am now 94 years old and perhaps the only living original founder of NCCC still around. The main campus is built on top of an enormous seven acre rock with shallow soil and very steep hills on all sides. Very difficult to work with. There is a 10 story difference in elevation between the library and athletes buildings. The steep, narrow Santanoni Avenue without sidewalks, a railroad, and 40 objecting native citizens were an enormous drawback. Because the cost for this project will be paid for with taxpayer dollars, the cost should be a matter of public record and the project should go out to bid. Any party involved with influence on the approval level would have an obvious conflict of interest and not be qualified to bid on the project. The public, Franklin County Legislators, Essex County Supervisors and College Board should be invited to drive over the proposed tortuous route and up Santanoni Avenue to make their own judgment before a final decision is made. Using the River Street Hall as a Welcome Center will satisfy virtually all the many questions and considerations that have been raised. The bottom line is the decision should be narrowed down to use River Street Hall. Will all of the participants join together and get this good plan done? It is past time for a Whistle Blower in Saranac Lake. Frank Casier Saranac Lake

Wild Character The Nicest, Most Generous Tree Ever The Northern White Cedar is amazing in its kindness and versatility: birds and small mammals feed on its seeds, and deer munch on it in the winter. An evergreen in the cypress family, it has fan-like branches, tiny cones, and leaves that are dark green on top and pale below. Cedar wood is light and strong and contains an aromatic chemical that is pleasant to people but shunned by insects. Ideal for a variety of construction purposes, including boats, fence posts and roof shingles, it can survive wet conditions and ground contact for years. This tree is flat out amazing. Another reason we’re so...

Rabies vaccination pellets to be dropped in area ELIZABETHTOWN Ñ Rabies is a virus that affects the central nervous system in mammals and is always fatal if left untreated. It is almost always transmitted through saliva when an infected animal bites an animal or person. Wildlife accounts for over 90 percent of all reported rabies cases each year in the US. Raccoons, bats, and skunks are responsible for most reported cases, but foxes, coyotes and other smaller mammals may also transmit the disease. The Wildlife Services (WS) program of the USDA is working to protect people and pets from the threat of rabies. WS is distributing an oral rabies vaccination (ORV) bait to vaccinate wildlife, and help stop the further spread of rabies. Oral rabies vaccine baits are coated with an attractant and packaged in small blister packs. The Plattsburgh project will cov-

er parts of New York, Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont and distribute 372,900 baits by fixed-wing aircraft and 4,680 by hand. The project started in mid-August. Anyone who finds oral rabies vaccine is asked to leave them alone. If contact occurs, wash with soap and water any skin or wounds that may have come into contact with ORV baits, especially if the bait was damaged. ORV will be labeled and include a phone number to access for questions or concerns. If your pet eats an ORV bait, donÕ t panic. It is not harmful for pets to consume ORV bait, though eating a large number of ORV baits may cause an upset stomach. Do not risk being bitten or being exposed to the vaccine by taking bait away from your pet. Check the area where the ORV bait was found and relocate any remaining baits to a wooded area.

If you have questions about ORV baits please call the USDA Wildlife Services at 1-888-574-6656. Essex and Clinton County Public Health Departments remind all residents to avoid contact with stray or wild animals and unknown cats and dogs. Always notify your doctor or your local Public Health Department if you are bitten by a pet or wild animal. Call the Essex County Public Health Department at 873-3500 (1888-270-7249 after hours) or Clinton County Public Health Department at 5654840 (561-3370 after hours) to report an animal bite or possible rabies contact. It is essential for pet owners to make sure their pets are up to date with their rabies vaccinations. Visit co.essex.ny/PublicHealth or for more information on rabies and rabies clinic schedules.

Ragnar foot race returning to Adirondacks Sept. 27-28 By Keith Lobdell WESTPORT Ñ A test of endurance and speed will again return to the Adirondacks this month. The Ragnar Relay Adirondacks will be run Sept. 27 and Sept. 28, bringing with it more than 2,000 runners to take on the 196.2-mile course that travels from Saratoga Springs and finishes at the Lake Placid Horse Show grounds. Ragnar holds nationwide overnight running relay races that range from 180 to 200 miles, broken up into 36 transfer stations and taking at least 30 hours to complete. Last year was the first time that Ragnar hosted an event in the Adirondacks, using it to replace their annual run in New York City and the surrounding region. The race will begin in Saratoga Springs and consist of 36 course legs which are run by a team of runners. There will be several exchanges along the way, including major transitions where runners can rest up. One will be set up at the

Essex County Fairgrounds in Westport from 10:30 p.m. Sept. 27 until 9:45 a.m. Sept. 28, providing hydration and first aid stations along with outdoor sleeping. Last year, runners also slept inside Floral Hall on the grounds. Another major exchange will be at the Ticonderoga Middle School from 4:45 p.m. Sept. 27 to 5:30 a.m. Sept. 28. The exchange will include hydration and first aid stations, outdoor sleeping and an indoor hangout area. There will also be fundraising going on to help support the Ticonderoga School clubs and teams. Lake George will host another exchange at Million Dollar Beach, which will be home to hydration and first aid stations, outdoor sleeping and concession sales. The station will be open from 11:30 a.m. Sept. 27 to midnight. Residents are welcome to stop by and see the event for themselves. Volunteers at that location will be instructed to keep teams quiet, and should any disturbance happen, they should contact Race Director Katie Seely at (801) 834-9531. For additional information on the race, visit ragnarrelay. com/race/adirdonacks.

New online STAR registration plan set

ELIZABETHTOWN Ñ The New York State Tax Department today unveiled an easy, fast and secure online STAR Registration platform for homeowners currently receiving the Basic STAR property tax exemption. The system will facilitate Governor CuomoÕ s 2013-14 Budget initiative to save New York taxpayers millions by eliminating inappropriate STAR property tax exemptions. The STAR Program provides 2.6 million homeowners with savings on their school property tax bills each year, but is only available for an individualÕ s or familyÕ s primary residence. The GovernorÕ s initiative follows a Tax Department investigation that showed some homeowners were receiving the exemption on more than one property. The Tax Department is mailing letters to all 2.6 million Basic STAR recipients. The letter includes registration instructions for the DepartmentÕ s online application. It also provides homeowners with a telephone number for registration or questions at 4572036. The deadline for completing the registration is Dec. 31. The registration applies only to Basic STAR recipients; senior

citizens receiving the Enhanced STAR exemption are not impacted. In order to continue receiving Enhanced STAR, seniors must continue to apply annually or participate in the Income Verification Program. The Basic STAR exemption is available for owner-occupied, primary residences where the combined income of resident owners and their spouses is $500,000 or less. Married couples with multiple residences are only eligible to receive one Basic STAR exemption. The average homeowner benefit as a result of Basic STAR is $700 annually. Statewide, total savings are nearly $1.9 billion each year. The Basic and Enhanced STAR exemptions are the only property tax exemptions reimbursed by New York State. The registration program will impact Basic STAR exemptions for 2014 and beyond; it does not impact 2013 exemptions. Homeowners will not have to re-register every year Ð based on the information provided in the registration process, the Tax Department will monitor homeownersÕ eligibility in future years.

Seduced by a Stream


ecently, I was seduced by a small stream that continually calls me back to its banks for a final embrace, and just one last cast. There is no doubt the natural siren has my number, and she knows exactly what I need. When I last visited, she provided me with a beautiful, sleek rainbow trout that was almost translucent in its all-natural, crimson and scarlet garb. Soon after the release, I was again contemplating an escape from the watery vixen, until my efforts were rewarded with another battle-worn veteran of the great piscatorial wars. Although the old, brown trout was barely a nudge beyond 13 inches, it waged a battle worthy of a specimen far larger than his actual measure. It possessed the punch of a heavyweight, and as it hunkered down in the swell of a small waterfall, it put up a fight far greater than his size would generally permit. I battled him back and forth on his own terms, and he used the familiar environment to his advantage again and again. Eventually, after untangling my line from various streamside entanglements, I brought him to the shore. Being careful not to mare his image in the handling, I gently twisted the hook upside down and shook him free. Stunned for a moment, he soon swam slowly away before coming to rest in the shade of an overhanging rock ledge, which is when I believe I discerned a sly grin overtaking his wide, hooked chin. I again attempted to depart the luxurious embrace of my steady and gentle streamside siren. In my mind, I had already shed my waders, and retired my vest to the riverbank. In reality, my flyline was still on the water, and as my fly was sucked into a small eddy, a strong whirlpool pulled it under the surface. Serendipity certainly has its moments, and this time it provided me with one of my own. As I reached down to pick up my rod, a beautiful brook trout slapped and skittered across the surface of the small, backwater pool. The fish took my fly subsurface, without even the thought of an attentive twitch on my part. The little brookie appeared to be intent on committing individual piscicide, until I gently landed and unleashed him. I held it up with my two fingers and admired it for the shear beauty of its markings, rather than for its diminutive stature, which was small, but feisty. Obviously, no one in his school bothered to teach the youngster about the necessary cautions required when chasing a false slab of fur and feathers thatÕ s often found swirling beneath a dark cloud of a watery debris. Although I only removed him from his watery lair for just a moment, he took off like a fish on a mission upon release. It was nearly four oÕ clock by my reckonings when the afternoon sun slowly slipped beyond the far treeline. Again, I went through the rites of a proper streamside retreat. I knew I needed to depart the caressing arms of the lonely stream, in order to escape her sweet babble. She had held me in her spell for far too long, and now it was time to retreat! Quickly, I repacked the small wicker creel, and restored numerous flies to my vest. My hiking boots were rebooted in an exchange with felt bottomed waders, and I was well on my way back to the truck when it struck me. My favorite flyrod remained cradled in the careful arms of a small bush on the bank of the stream, way back down in the gorge. I promptly deposited an armload of belongings in the back of the truck and hopped over the bank to return to the stream. Ò She simply wonÕ t let me leave,Ó I remarked to no one in particular, Ò Which is probably a good thing.Ó I grabbed my rod from the streamside and as I turned to head back up the hill, the sound of the slightest splash caught my ear. Then there was another, and then some more! At the head of the big pool, I could see small, silvery fish that were attempting to navigate their way over the tall falls. For a moment, I sat on a streamside boulder and simply stared. I was transfixed by the audacity of the diminutive salmon as they sought to answer an instinctive urge to complete an upstream migration completely driven by their genes. As tiny fry, the silvery marvels were stocked in the headwaters of the brook, and unbeknownst to them, there was no real need for them to return to breed. If they failed to complete their genetic mission, the DEC would still continue to stock many more of their kind. Obviously, nobody bothered to tell the salmon about the situation, and as a result, they continued to leap into the falls in contemplation of making it to the big show. I knew dinner was nearing the table at home and surely, I should go. IÕ d had my fun for the day, and I know a busmanÕ s holiday should never be overdone. But retreat as I may, my feet simply couldn’t move. I stood transfixed at the sight of salmon leaping into the air, despite being pounded back into the holding pool. Ò What the hell, IÕ ll take one last cast and then get out of here,Ó which I did. And as my line neared the falls, a slender, silver missile took the fly right out of the air. Carefully, I released it up above the falls. Without hesitation, I sent a second cast out and landed another salmon, and then another in rapid secession. With each release, I pitched a fish above the falls. They wanted the river, and the river wanted them. It was almost too easy, but I wanted to fulfill my duty. In a span of 10 minutes, I tossed more than two dozen salmon over the falls on the way to a migration they neither understood, nor had the capacity to complete. But at least they would get there! In a single afternoon, I attracted three varieties of trout and over three dozen salmon to the tip of my flies. No wonder I found myself caught in a siren’s grasp. If the erasable grin on my face offered an indication, it was well worth it! And being the dutiful deadbeat Dad who often fails to return on time for supper, I ate every bit of the burnt steak and endured the scorn of the cold corn waiting on the dining room table. Fortunately, my presence at dinner was neither expected, nor required. However, the lame excuse did serve as false alarm to help wrench me away from a sensuous, small stream and a multitude of energetic playmates that willingly attended to my every need.

Dam dilemma! T

hroughout the North Country, there are streams that have been used as power sources in the past. Logs were transported downstream in the early spring via the power of the moving water. This fluid power ran sawmills, grain grinding grist mills, and supplied hydraulic muscle to turn turbines for electric power. Water was used by many factories along the rivers for the manufacturing of various items like paper making. In the southern Adirondacks water was used in many of the tanning facilities like those in Amsterdam and Gloversville. The streams were a tool to be used and little thought was given to protect fisheries. Numerous chemicals and other pollutants were dumped into the streams, many changed with the color of the chemical being used that day. The fish had to fend for themselves. They either went up clear water tributaries to survive or downstream to lakes if they could get there. If they didnÕ t make it, they were sushi for the birds and mammals along the shoreline. Many of the old stone and wooden cribbed dams that were layed up in the early years of the Adirondacks are gone. Some still remain as dams for reservoirs for town water supplies, although surface water supplies are no longer allowed in New York, with the exception of New York City. NYC gets their water from open reservoirs in the Catskills. New York City gets away with a lot of things that the rest of us have to deal with. I guess we know where the voting power is for New York, donÕ t we! Many of the dams in the state are getting old, and becoming a threat to downstream residents. Repairs are expensive and engineering to ensure safety is costly, very costly now days. With the increases in high volume storm events like Hurricane Floyd, Irene and others, having a dam in a state of disrepair is a liability. No town can afford a lawsuit brought on by a dam that gives way. On the fisheries side of the story, tail water streams below dams are some of the most productive fisheries. Cold water discharged from the bottom of the dam supplies a continuous supply of cool water to the stream below. These dams release water at certain rates, so the stream doesn’t have great fluctuations in stream flow. This makes the stream ideal trout habitat. This nutrient rich, cold water makes a fabulous trout fishery. In New York, the East Branch of the Delaware River along the NY and Pennsylvania line gets water from the Pepacton Reservoir. This tail water stream is world famous for its trout fishing. The Pepacton Reservoir is one of the holding areas for the NYC water supply. Every fly fisherman has heard of the Frying Pan, the South Platte and the Arkansas in Colorado, or Lees Ferry on the Colorado River in Arizona. All of these are famous gold class tail water streams. The nutrient rich, cold water makes these streams, the Ò dream streamsÓ of many fly fishers. Folks like myself, travel all over the US to fish these waters. These streams draw in thousands of fisherman into the area where they purchase meals, hotels, fishing equipment, hire guides and just plain old spend money locally. Our own Ausable River is not a tail water stream, but it does bring in hundreds of fly fishermen to the area, where they spend their money. That is good for our local economy. There are also downsides to dams. One downside is that all dams are not bottom discharge dams. Many dams have the water released from the top of the dam, or over spillways. The problem then becomes warm water. The lake behind the dam heats up during the summer and that warm water is then discharged into the stream, affecting the trout fishery below. Much depends on the size of the impoundment and supply temperature of water to the stream above the lake. Large impoundments have a greater effect on the stream below. The plus side to this type of dam is that bugs that hatch on the lake get washed over the spillway and feed the fish below the dam. Trout are cold water species. When the water warms, they migrate into cold water spring seep pools, cooler water stream tributaries or out to a lake to get to their comfort zone. If they canÕ t migrate to colder water, they can die. Once again, sushi! A second problem is that the natural migration of aquatic organisms is stopped by dams. Whether it’s the fish, invertebrates, minnows or other stream critters, dams can stop their natural migration up or down stream. This results in a loss of diversity in the upstream reaches. The continuity of the stream habi-

tat must be maintained to keep a sound aquatic community. On the flip side, dams may prevent By Rich Redman the spread of invasive species into a river system, like lamprey eels. Brook trout, brown trout, rainbows (steelhead) and smallmouth bass all spawn in the streams at various times. Some spawn in spring and some in fall. They may migrate back to the lake or stay in the stream. Steelheads are rainbow trout that migrate back and forth from stream to lake. Cattaraugus Creek in western NY is known for its steelhead runs and smallmouth fishery. Dams can stop this natural occurrence from ever happening. There is talk of removing the dam in Springville NY to allow access to another 20 or more mile of habitat for trout and other fish. We have dams in our area that also limit fish passage. A third problem is that dams can allow ice to form and build up. In spring thaws, flooding can occur due to the ice jamming. Fast running water tends to be open, meaning itÕ s not frozen over, so ice jamming is less likely. Dams also stop the natural transport of sediment through the river system, which can increase erosion along stream banks. From a river restoration view point, the removal of some dams is a good thing. The effect on the river system depends on the location of the dam within the river. A dam at the top of the watershed doesnÕ t affect the river as much as one near the mouth of the stream. The closer to the mouth, the less likely there will be much fish and aquatic migration. Top discharge dams affect the water temperature for the fish below the dam, and can restrict fish and aquatic organism passage from their natural migration patterns. With fast moving waters ice formation is reduced and there is a greater probability of less flooding in the immediate area. Dam removal projects get very emotional for people, especially the ones who live right on the impoundment. People fear it will turn into a mud hole or swamp. But it really turns back into the original floodplain. Usually the vegetation takes over so fast along the old shoreline that the restoration process happens on its own. With foresight and planning, the old shoreline can also be planted with various grassesÕ to keep it open. Folks can then enjoy the new fast moving rapids and stream flow alongside a grassy bank that will supply fish with terrestrial bugs like grasshoppers, crickets and ants. You will get to see the river the way it was, not hidden under water. Dams were built by man and can be removed by man. Power dams that supply electricity for the country or reservoirs for human water supplies are important and we need them. Some dams in the west restrict salmon migration and have garnered considerable heated discussions among fisheries groups. We are not talking about the Hoover Dam or the pyramids or some historical site. We are talking about old stone and wood cribbed structures and dams that are in need of costly repairs. They are liabilities to the human residents downstream and to the aquatic residents in the stream. We have seen numerous flooding events in recent years and its time we take a real good look at all of our watersheds and make decisions that are good for the economy of our area and are long term solutions to flooding. This is where the whole dam dilemma comes into play. Removal of a dam changes the landscape for the people nearby, but in the long run it will reduce many of the problems associated with the dam. If the fisheries can be improved, ice jamming reduced and the river brought back to its natural state, then it gets my vote. An improved fishery can start drawing folks from other areas and states to our area. When they come here and spend money it is good for our economy. They can enjoy our local foods and fish, served up on a platter at a local restaurant or bar! Now we need some homegrown beer, wine and cider to go with that fish dinner.
