Schumer, Owens seek to aid local breweries By Keith Lobdell

NY Rising could bring $6m or more to region

LAKE PLACID Ñ Small breweries throughout the nation may get the extra boost that they need thanks to new legislation sponsored by a pair of New York politicians. Sen. Charles Schumer and Rep. Bill Owens were in Lake Placid Friday, Sept. 6, touring the Lake Placid Pub and Brewery and talking about the Small Breweries Act. Ò Our craft brewing industry is one of the fastest growing industries in Upstate New York,Ó Schumer said. Ò They are often accompanied by restaurants that increase tourism and increase revenue. I want to help them and I have been working on this bill for a while.Ó The Small Breweries Act would cut the excise tax in half for the first 60,000 barrels of beer produced by small breweries from $7 a barrel to $3.50.

Au SABLE FORKS Ñ M embers of the Upper Jay Volunteer Fire Department thought they were attending a press conference on the creation of a NY Rising committee to oversee work in the Jay and Keene area. That was before Gov. Andrew Cuomo gave them the news they had been waiting over two years to hear, at the end of his Sept. 4 press conference at the

Jay Community Center. ÒT he Upper Jay Fire Department is about $1.5 million short of their goal to rebuild the firehouse and they have been looking hard for the additional funding,Ó Cuomo said. ÒT he state wants to be helpful in rebuilding the Upper Jay firehouse so, when we leave here today, Upper Jay will no longer be $1.5 million short.Ó ÒW e are very excited,Ó Upper Jay VFD Commissioner Chris Garrow said.

ÒT he whole department fought hard as a group to get to this point and this funding is a huge relief for us.Ó The total cost of the new fire station project is $2,783,441, which includes the purchase of new land, demolition of the old facility and construction of the new building. The town of Jay was able to secure $1,286,765 to pay for the project with funding from insurance, municipal CONTINUED ON PAGE 16

Westport’s Connell returns to county after battling rare illness By Keith Lobdell ELIZABETHTOWN Ñ Dan Connell returned to his seat at the Essex County Board of Supervisors Sept. 9, just over a month after facing a serious illness that he canÕ t remember. Ò The doctors believe that I contracted a virus that caused my auto immune system to interact with itself and eventually caused a blockage to the memory cells,Ó Connell said in his first public comments since being diagnosed with the malady. Ò I have approximately four weeks that I have no memory of.Ó Connell said that he has been working with his doctors during the path to recovery from a disease he said, “less than 20 people in the world have been diagnosed with.Ó Ò I have undergone intense medical treatment for this condition,Ó he said. Ò Last Wednesday, I was told by my neurologist that there were no more signs of my auto immune system operating incorrectly and except for

the fact that I would not have any memory of the four weeks when my memory cells were blocked, I can expect a full recovery.Ó That point was further made when Schroon Supervisor Michael Marnell offered Connell a blue ribbon for beating him in the annual cow milking contest at the Essex County Fair. Ò I honestly donÕ t remember what happened,Ó Connell said. Connell also used his time to thank the board and those who offered support during his treatment. Ò I would like to thank all of you for your phone calls, cards, prayers and concerns,Ó he said. Ò I canÕ t begin to tell you how much those have meant to me while dealing with the condition I just experienced. Ò I would like to thank all of you, the staff at the county and my town staff and colleagues and my family and friends for the incredible support I have been given as I went through this experience,Ó Connell concluded. Ò It has made me realize how incredibly supportive everyone is when that support is needed.Ó

his Saturday evening, the film society will show a documentary on the giant screen at the Whallonsburg Grange called Ò Brooklyn Castle,Ó about a group of kids from a poor inner-city school who become champions at the game of chess. The movie starts at 8 p.m., costs $5 for adults and if IÕ m not mistaken, popcorn and other refreshments will be available. On Sunday, the Grange hosts folk singers Anne Hills and Priscilla Herdman. Tickets are $12 at the door and the show starts at 7 p.m. They will be backed by guitarist Max Cohen. Shirley LaForest, Essex town historian, gives an illustrated lecture at the Wadhams Free Library on Wednesday, Sept. 18. Her talk is titled Ò Back Home in Wadhams 1812,Ó and is about life hereabouts during the War of 1812. It begins at 7:30 p.m., although I would suggest you get there much earlier because Ms. LaForest always draws overflow crowds. A new business has recently opened in town called the Grange Co-Packer Cooperative and based in the commercial kitchen at the Whallonsburg Grange. They take local fruits and vegetables and

create value-added products like frozen soup, ketchup and jellies and jams. Co-packer is short for contract packer, which is an entity with the knowledge and insurance to produce and label foods for sale on behalf of others. Check out their very comprehensive web site, complete with photos taken in beautiful Reber, at For you sports nuts, the Green Bay Packers got their name from the packing industry in Wisconsin, in this case meat packing. This summer IÕ ve seen exactly one monarch butterfly. Usually they’re everywhere, but this year they are largely absent, for as yet unknown reasons. Monarchs migrate from Mexico to spots all over the eastern U.S. taking several generations to reach our area. No one butterfly makes the whole trip, and they only lay eggs in milkweed plants. Habitat destruction in Mexico and climate change negatively affecting milkweeds may be responsible for their dramatic decline, although butterfly population swings are common. Finally, IÕ d like to wish a very happy retirement to Jim Morgan, EssexÕ s hard-working and cheerful highway superintendent.

New regulations should bring faster election night results By Keith Lobdell ELIZABETHTOWN Ñ The Essex County Board of Elections is promising faster results to their web site, even if it is not the way some supervisors were hoping for. Commissioners Allison McGahay and Mark Whitney spoke with members of the Essex County Public Safety Committee Sept. 9 about new polling rules put in place by the state. Ò The Governor passed the Election Modernization Act which essentially requires us to use

memory cards,Ó McGahay said. Ò They should be back to the office from the polling places within half an hour to 45 minutes. We will be able to upload them immediately and you will automatically have your vote totals that will be immediately uploaded to the website and you will have your vote totals up by 11 p.m.Ó McGahay said that the state does not want results to be called in from the polling places to the Board of Elections but has made the process of tabulating the results easier with the modernization act. Ò You will still have to manually refresh your web page, but the results will be there earlier,Ó

she said. Ò Why canÕ t that happen,Ó Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafava said. Ò ItÕ s coming from your inspectors and they are unofficial.” Whitney said while they would not be telephoning numbers in, there would be electronic printouts of the results at each of the polling places. “At the poll site, that will generate the first report, tear that off and post it at each location,Ó he said. Board chairman and Jay Supervisor Randy Douglas said that all he wanted was access to the results.

Ò If those numbers will be available at each polling site for the public to see, then that works for me,Ó Douglas said. Ò We used to put one person at a polling site and another person at the other site and then add them all together. I know that they have rules and regulations and I am glad that you two are working together to try and make things work well for everybody.Ó Ò It is our goal this year to be quicker,Ó McGahay said. Ò This is the year you are going to see the fastest, most accurate election results broken down by district that you are ever going to get.Ó

Four day work week discussed at county By Keith Lobdell ELIZABETHTOWN Ñ The Department of Social Services is looking to continue a summer policy into the winter. Department Director John OÕ Neill spoke to members of the Human Services Committee during its Sept. 9 meeting about offering department employees a four day work week. Ò ItÕ s probably half of our department that takes advantage of that,Ó OÕ Neill said about the current policy of allowing employees to work four day weeks during the summer. Ò So far in talking with employees and customers, this has not cre-

ated any hardships that impact our employees or impact our customers.Ó Currently, the Department of Public Works allows for four day work weeks throughout the year. Ò This is a little bit different than the four day work week in the DPW,Ó County Manager Dan Palmer said. Ò In this case, the office remains open all five days and it is just a matter of scheduling different employees to work at different times during the week.Ó Palmer echoed the remarks by OÕ Neill that there had been no complaints with the summer policy in place. Ò I have not gotten any complaints or issues from the public or from anybody else saying they could not get service because

there was not enough staff on during the summer months,Ó Palmer said. Ò It comes down to whether or not this board wanted to approve it.Ó Ò My concern would be that if we allowed one department and then every department would want to do it,Ó Wilmington Supervisor Randy Preston said. “It does not change the five days, it just changes who would be staffing the office during the five days,” Palmer responded, saying that the ultimate decision would come down to each department head. Ò In my department, I probably would not allow it because we are just too small,” Palmer said. “It would just come down to each department head and what they would want to do.Ó

Museum founder remembered with music and readings music. An initiative by SUNY Plattsburgh to digitize the entire Porter song collection has been an important contribution to the project. Vagabonding is presented in partnership with Traditional Arts in Upstate New York (TAUNY) in Canton who is spearheading the Songs to Keep project to bring this rich and long-forgotten collection of Adirondack/North Country music to light to showcase and raise awareness of the folk music of New YorkÕ s Adirondack North Country. The songs are seeing new life through a collaborative effort that includes a CD of songs from the collection recorded by contemporary artists, a song book with music, lyrics, and historical information, and a Mountain

the people of the Adirondacks. Marjorie Lansing Porter was one of the founders of the Adirondack History Center in 1955. She served as historian for both Clinton County and Essex County and was a writer and editor for the Essex County Republican and other northern New York newspapers. In her work as historian, she traveled across the region collecting stories and songs using a SoundScriber portable recorder. The songs, recorded in the 1940s and 1950s and considered by Marjorie as “fine to keep,” ranged from British and Irish ballads to native New York songs of lumber camps and iron mines.

Reform necessary for Adirondack economic success


he classification debate over the Essex Chain Lakes and other newly acquired Forest Preserve is necessary and important; however, a more focused debate over balancing economic development and land preservation in the Adirondack Park is lacking and sorely needed. We hope this latest debate leads to reform in the way the state manages economic development in the Adirondack Park. This is a unique place, and it deserves a unique management approach. The 40-year-old model simply isn’t working. Classification — a job for the Adirondack Park Agency (APA) — is only the first possible step in redefining economic development and its relation to the Forest Preserve. Then comes the unit management plan, a job for the state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC). ThatÕ s where the real reform should be focused. From the state of New YorkÕ s perspective, the APA should classify the newly Essex Chain Lakes tract wilderness. After all, whatÕ s the point of having Forest Preserve if youÕ re not going to preserve its natural resources to the most pristine state possible? From the local perspective, the APA should classify the Essex Chain Lakes wild forest. After all, what the point of having a park if youÕ re not going to open it up to as many users as possible? Such is the dilemma the APA has been facing over the past several months. The APA should side with home rule. Small communities such as Newcomb, Minerva, Indian Lake, Long Lake and North Hudson need an economic boost if theyÕ re going to survive. With tourism alone, Newcomb will never become the boom town it was when the National Lead mine was in full operation. But thatÕ s not the point. People in Newcomb just want to be able to stay there and make a living. And thatÕ s not too much to ask. The future of the Adirondack Park is in the hands of the state government, especially as it buys new land for the Forest Preserve and classifies it for specific uses. We’re now at a critical point where a decision needs to be made about classifying the Essex Chain Lakes tract. If the Essex Chain Lakes becomes wild forest Ñ opening the land up to a myriad of uses, such as mountain biking, motor boating and snowmobiling — it would increase the traffic in communities near the property. So will wilderness, but there would most likely be fewer tourists with the limited access. Still, without infrastructure additions Ñ such as beds and restaurants Ñ those communities would not be able to take advantage of this new opportunity no matter

the classification. A wild forest classification will not be the magic bullet for economic development in the central Adirondacks. It will not solve the communities’ problems or create as many jobs as people say it will. But it may help. When you donÕ t have much, every little bit helps. So why do communities continue to age and decline economically in the Adirondack Park while the state continues to buy new land? ItÕ s not because of those purchases; they are assets to the state. ItÕ s because of the way the state manages and regulates land Ñ public and private Ñ inside the Adirondack Park. Take the Essex Chain Lakes, for example. Eight APA commissioners and designees from three other state agencies Ñ DEC, Department of State, and Empire State Development Ñ make the decision of how to classify Forest Preserve. What happens next? The DEC takes the lead on a unit management plan, with help from the APA, and the DOS and ESD go home to Albany. Why? WeÕ ve said it before, and weÕ ll say it again Ñ ESD and DOS should be part of the unit management planning process, not in a way that takes the DEC away from its primary state land management role, but in a way that creates economic opportunities in the communities that are impacted by the Forest Preserve. In this case, ESD and DOS should be working to find ways to boost economic development in the five towns surrounding the Essex Chain Lakes. If Gov. Cuomo really wants to make economic changes here in the Adirondack Park, heÕ ll direct ESD and DOS to stay and work with those communities after classification, whether itÕ s wilderness or wild forest. ThatÕ s a simple way to make reform. DonÕ t let them go home. Give them a more active role in managing the Park, not just sitting on the APA board. And they should be part of every unit management planning process, whether itÕ s a new acquisition or not. As we continue to define the Adirondack Park and move forward with this grand experiment, letÕ s learn from past mistakes and make changes accordingly. New York has failed to link communities and Forest Preserve in a way that best creates an atmosphere for sustainable economic development. Entrepreneurs with deep pockets arenÕ t waiting in the wings to swoop down into tiny towns such as Newcomb and build restaurants and hotels for the tourists who use the state land. Yet thatÕ s exactly whatÕ s needed. The Adirondack Park needs an economic management plan. And that can only happen if the governor gives other state agencies, such as ESD and DOS, the task.

Thanks for help To the Valley News: We would like to thank everyone that helped in our search for our lost Shepard, Ruger. The people in our community we live in are the best and we are proud to call this home. Thanks again to you all. Lou and Sarah Pastore Elizabethtown

‘Stile’ differences To the Valley News: Regarding the story Ò Essex has stileÓ in the Aug. 31, 2103 edition, we would like to make the following points: 1. Contrary to the caption under the photo in Sue MarkhamÕ s story, the stile was not erected on family property. The stile was placed over a fence separating our property (the old Essex School) and the adjacent Hickory Hill property. No part of the immediate area is public property or accessible from public property. 2. We have confirmed with our neighbor that no permission was ever requested by or granted to anyone to either enter or to erect anything on either property. We discovered the stile after being alerted that several vehicles had recently driven across our lawn. As this is private property we trust that in the future our rights and privacy will be respected. The former Essex school house has been in our family for more than 40 years, and we have made considerable efforts to preserve it and the grounds. We have always welcomed any visitor (usually former students) who knocked on our door and asked to take a look around. The Sharp Family Essex

Event a success To the Valley News: Literacy Volunteers of Essex/Franklin Counties would like to acknowledge and thank Kristin Kimball, author of The Dirty Life, for presenting at our Annual August Author Address on Aug. 25 at Camp Dudley in Westport. Whether you knew anything about farming or not, KimballÕ s passion and energy for farming were contagious! She spoke on the profound joy and various challenges that come with establishing and operating a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm. She shared photos, answered questions, and made herself available afterwards to sign books and share farming techniques with one of LVÕ s international student from Bosnia. The audience hung on every word while she read aloud a piece from her much anticipated sequel. Literacy Volunteers would also like to thank all the volunteers and individuals who provided refreshments. A special thanks to Fred Guffy and Matt Storey of Camp Dudley for allowing the use of its unique and beautiful facility. Thank you, Maria Burke Literacy Volunteers Essex/Franklin Counties

Moriahstock a success To the Valley News: Moriahstock 2013 was a great success. We had a great summer day to enjoy PAC entertainment wrestling.

Heritage Day a success To the Valley News: The Penfield Board of Trustees would like to extend our thanks to all who made our 50th Heritage Day a success this past Aug 18. We wish to extend our gratitude to the members and pastors of the First Congregational Church and United Methodist Church for organizing a wonderful ecumenical service. Although our group of vendors and demonstrators was small. thank you to all who attended especially our weaving demonstrator, Joyce Barry. The live music was fantastic. Thank you to the musicians who so generously shared their talents with us. Thank you to those folks on the corn, potato and chicken cooking crews, without you we would not have had such a delicious meal. To those who generously provided baked beans or dessert, you are all fabulous cooks. To all of our volunteers who assisted in the museum, museum gift shop, dessert shack and under the pavilion serving chicken dinners, thank you. We couldnÕ t do it without you. We extend our thanks to DebroÕ s on the Way CafŽ and GunnisonÕ s Lakeshore Orchards for assisting with our chicken barbecue. Thank you to everyone who came and enjoyed Penfield Homestead Museum for the first time or the 50th time. The board of trustees wishes to acknowledge the efforts of Kevin Gadway, Kever Gadway, Dave Hall, Bill Hunsdon, Fred Hunsdon, Peanut Ingleston, Dick Newell, Art Spring, Carl Ross and Riznick Construction, volunteers from the Crown Point Highway Department and Crown Point Telephone for the new utilities (water, power, and communications) in our outdoor venues, dessert shack, BBQ pit and pavilion. At this time, board of trustees would like to acknowledge all of our individual and family members and all those who use Penfield Pond for recreation. Our business members include BryantÕ s Lumber, Inc., Crown Point Telephone Corporation, Gunnison Lakeshore Orchards, Harland Funeral Home, International Paper Company, Mineville Oil Co., Inc., and Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union. We also wish to acknowledge the support of the following sustaining members Ð Art and Anne Cohn, Peter and Mary Gload, Daniel McNamara, Peggy V. Porter and Nancy L. Richmond. During the past 12 months we have received grants or substantial financial support from Daughters of the American Revolution, Ticonderoga Chapter, The Gabriel Fund, White Church III and The Sandy Hill Foundation. A note on the 50th Heritage Day - the first Heritage Day was put on to raise monies so the museum could open the next year. We hope to have a real 50th anniversary celebration next year featuring a special postmark, special lectures, special publications and much more. A member of PHM has inspired us, during this 50th anniversary celebration, to honor all past and present board members. The board of trustees received a request to honor a particular past board member but we found it impossible to honor just one. All have contributed to what Penfield Homestead Museum is today. It is our goal to review all of our past minutes and record all board member names and years of service. We will then display the names on two plaques Ð one for those deceased and one for those living. We will invite all past and present trustees to attend our 2014 pancake breakfast for the unveiling of these two plaques. To that end, the current board would appreciate any help with the names of early board members, especially those of the 1960s and 1970s. Please send us a letter or postcard with the name of the Trustee and years on the board.

Back to School Days… Penfield Homestead Museum has had a great first 50 years and we hope that you will continue to support us. We hope you will join us for Applefolkfest on Oct. 13 to celebrate fall in the Adirondacks. Thank you to all who support this museum and our efforts to Ò Welcome Everyone to the History of Crown Point.Ó Kama Ingleston Penfield Homestead Board of Trustees

Lake regulations clear To the Valley News: The article in the Sept. 7 issue (Times of Ti) about anglers being ticketed is full of half-truths and innuendos. At best, it might have been appropriate for your editorial page. It should not have run as a news article. It was published way too late to do anything but to rehash the flimsy excuses expressed by the guilty parties and their apologists, one of whom apparently is your reporter Shawn Ryan. It does not matter when the LGPC (Lake George Park Commission) technicians arrived at Mossey Point, nor does it matter when the anglers or the tournament organizers were advised that the two anglers would be ticketed, nor does it matter when, whether or if they were asked to wash their boats. The simple fact is that it has always been illegal to introduce invasive species into the waters of Lake George, and it is the responsibility of every boat owner to verify that neither his boat nor his trailer carry any invasives before launching, The Lake George Park Commission Ò Rules and Regulations, part 646-1.6 (h) are perfectly clear: Ò No person shall launch a vessel into or remove a vessel from the waters of the park without inspecting the vessel and its trailer, if any, to ensure the detection of marine growth, including macrophytes (weeds), or any other hull contamination, and removing said growth and disposing of it so as to ensure that it is not discharged into the waters of the park.Ó Inspection by LGPC staff is provided to help boat owners comply with this law. Neither the lack of the presence of LGPC staff nor the timing of their actions changes the requirement for individuals to inspect and clean their own boats before launching. Your reporter goes on to cloud the issue by reporting that Dave Wick stated that no new invasives were found in the water around the launch site that day. This twists Dave WickÕ s statement to imply that the burden of proof of a violation falls to the LGPC staff to find and recover as evidence, the actual, particular, single invasive plant or animal that came off of each of the offending boats. The evidence of invasives on the trailers, that no one denies had been in and out of Lake George that morning, is adequate proof of the violation. Apparently the other tournament participants realized their responsibility for the future quality of the waters of Lake George and launched only clean boats. Let’s hope that it is 100 percent in the future so that Lake George continues to be free of invasives for all, including fishermen, to enjoy. Kenneth Engler Hague

ow, with Labor Day behind us and the first splashes of tree color developing, children in the North Country will be returning to school. For some it will be their first time at school. Many will have been to their community school, but only to visit with mom and Dad but never left at school without them. I can remember my first day of school quite clearly. By Scot Hurlburt I had to get up early and I had to take a shower and I had to put on new clothes and shoes that pinched my heel as they were not worn in yet to a more comfortable fit. The step from the road up to the first step of the bus was big and then getting up on to the seat was a struggle. There I sat, my feet not touching the floor. I had several siblings on the bus so it was not as scary as it might have otherwise been. As I struggled from by bouncy seat, my sister took my hand and brought me to my classroom and told me that she would come see me later. It seems almost impossible to believe, but one of my greatest difficulties that first day was keeping my pants up. Though my belt was cinched up to the last hole, there just was not very much of me back then and I noticed that other little boys were also struggling. The bigness of everything left a strong impression, the tall ceilings, the tall people, the tall water fountains and the tall buildings. Many people that I have encountered over the years do remember their first day of school no matter what their perception of the experience might have been. There is no question what an endelible impression that first day of school makes. It goes without saying that these first school impressions may have long lasting impact, good or bad. Many students will be returning students and many will look forward to getting back to school including playing sports, being with friends all day and seeing their teachers. For some, the idea of returning to school may provoke apprehension our outright fear. Often, these will be students that, for one reason or another do not fit in very well. They are too heavy, too thin, too short, too tall, too smart, not smart enough or a multitude of other reasons that may somehow set the student apart. Would anyone today believe that wearing glasses could be a reason to be picked on? Today being picked on or bullied at school is much more complex than it used to be in my opinion. School should be a safe place where there is an intentional effort by the school to keep all students safe. Students should be safe from danger, safe from bullying and safe from emotional hurts. All area schools that I am aware of have anti-bullying programs and do everything they can to make sure that students are safe. School should be the one place in the community where there is justice and equality without regard to where you come from, where you live, who your family is or how big your house is. I believe that many area schools do provide a school culture that is just and I can think of many successful students who did not come from wealthy homes or had connected or important families. As parents one of the best things that you can do is to actually go to your childrenÕ s school. Make your own observation of the school culture, speak up when you see things that you really like or do not like. In all likelihood, you will not be alone, other parents will be seeing the same things. Attending school functions or being supportive of your community school lets your children know that you care about their school and that while everything may not be perfect, nothing is, you are part of their school community. Your presence and involvement will punctuate just how important school is. Remember, all kids count. Reach the writer at

Paul Smith’s hunting policy not changing for SAFE Act By Shawn Ryan PAUL SMITHÕ SÑ Not all colleges are interpreting provisions of New YorkÕ s new SAFE Act the same way. It was recently reported that Syracuse University, which owns the 2,500-acre Pack Forest Demonstration Area in Warrensburg, and the 2,800-acre Dubuar Memorial Forest adjacent to SUNY college of Environmental Science and ForestryÕ s (ESF) Ranger School in Wanakena, will no longer allow people to hunt the property with firearms. This is because a provision in the New York State Penal Law, section 265.01 a, now makes it a

class E felony to possess a firearm “ or upon a building or grounds, used for educational purposes, of any school, college, or university, except the forestry lands, wherever located, owned and maintained by the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY ESF).Ó Formerly possession of a firearm on school property was a class A Misdemeanor. While there is clearly an exemption for SUNY ESF land, and the land in question is maintained by the ESF, the land itself is owned by Syracuse University. After consulting with their counsel, officials of Syracuse University decided that since they were the ultimate owners of the property, the exception did not apply to them. Officials at Paul Smith’s College interpret the law differently. Ò ThereÕ s nothing in the SAFE Act that prevents a college from allowing a student to store a firearm on a campus,” said Phil Fiacco, Director of Campus Safety at Paul SmithÕ s. Ò The law preventing students from having firearms on a campus has been there for a while, that

wasnÕ t new with the SAFE Act. It doesnÕ t allow a student or anybody to bring a firearm onto a college campus without the permission of the administration of the college.Ó Paul SmithÕ s has long allowed students to bring firearms to campus in the fall semester, for the purpose of hunting. Firearms are turned in to campus security, and students pick up the firearm when they are ready to hunt, returning it at the conclusion of their hunt. Fiacco estimates that the college has between 150 and 200 firearms in its armory. And while students are barred from actually hunting on campus, they are allowed to hunt on much of the colleges extensive forest land. When they register their firearms, they are given a map of lands which are being utilized for educational activities, and lands which arenÕ t. They are allowed to hunt the latter. “Because Paul Smith’s College has 14,000 acres of land, we have a hunting map, and students are allowed to utilize certain areas, certain college properties, to hunt,Ó Fiacco said. Ò That has been the policy, and it wonÕ t change

Cuomo to sheriffs running for office: enforce all the laws, including SAFE Act Au SABLE FORKS Ñ Gov. Andrew Cuomo said he

wants the law enforced no matter personal opinion.

In a recent trip to Au Sable Forks Sept. 4, Cuomo responded to a question posed concerning those running for sheriff in numerous counties who were stating that, as part of their platform, they would not seek to enforce the statutes mandated under the SAFE Act, a set of regulations Gov. Andrew Cuomo

passed in January restricting firearms in the state. Ò ItÕ s not really up to law enforcement to pick and choose what laws they donÕ t like,Ó Cuomo said. Ò Their job is to enforce the laws, all of the laws whether they agree with them or not.Ó Cuomo said that he knew what it was like to enforce laws that he did not see as popular or necessary. Ò When I was working as the Attorney General, there were a lot of laws that I had mixed emotions about but it was my duty to enforce all of the laws,Ó he said.

40 Days of Life event to be held

PLATTSBURGH Ñ An event organizers call a, Ò peaceful, prayerful, effective,” 40 Days for Life campaign will kick off with a Sept. 24 rally. “We truly hope that this fall’s 40 Days for Life campaign will mark the beginning of the end of abortion in Plattsburgh,Ó said Nancy Belzile, who coordinates the local 40 Days for Life effort. “The pro-life community will join together for our area’s 40 Days for Life kickoff event at Newman Center, SUNY Plattsburgh on Sept. 24, at 7 p.m.Ó Plattsburgh is one of the many cities conducting simultaneous 40 Days for Life campaigns from Sept. 25 through Nov. 3. Ò We start this effort by drawing members of the community together to share the vision of 40 Days for Life and to pray for GodÕ s blessings on this effort. It is time to focus attention on the harm abortion has done to our city,Ó said Belzile. Belzile said that as part of the effort, there will be prayer sessions planned near the Plattsburgh Panned Parenthood building. “This rally will begin 40 days of prayer and fasting, with special attention to prayer in the public right-of-way outside the abortion facility at Planned Parenthood of the North Country, 66 Brinkerhoff Street, Plattsburgh, as well as various types of community outreach,Ó said Belzile. All prayer vigil participants are asked to sign a statement of peace, pledging to conduct themselves in a Christ-like manner at all times. For information about the Plattsburgh campaign, visit

at all with the SAFE Act.Ó New York State Police Senior Investigator Chris Keniston said the wording of the Penal law section hasnÕ t changed under the Safe Act, just the grade of crime. He said it has long been illegal to possess a firearm on a college campuses, but he said there are exceptions in the law. The first exception is if the administration has granted written permission to an individual to possess a firearm on school property. The second is that the possession has to be in an area not used for educational purposes. Paul Smith’s, he says, is legal in allowing firearms on certain college owned lands. “If it’s just land that they own and it isn’t being used for educational purposes, and they have written permission, they are okay,Ó says Keniston. He said that he was unfamiliar with the specific property owned by Syracuse University, and couldnÕ t comment on their case. Hunters on those parcels are still allowed to utilize the property to bowhunt.

Fall events slated by ORDA

WILMINGTON Ñ Some of us may be turning our attention to the upcoming winter season, but donÕ t forget about autumn. The temperatures are ideal for all types of activities and the fall foliage is breathtaking. Plus, as an added bonus, the autumn season is also festival time, a time where residents, visitors and families can get together and celebrate the summer past and look ahead to winter. The 22nd annual Whiteface Mountain Oktoberfest, Oct. 5-6, will draw thousands of visitors to the Olympic mountain, in Wilmington as they celebrate the Bavarian culture with authentic music, dancing, food and of course beer. But itÕ s not all about eating and drinking, as there will be rides for kids and adults, craft vendors and discounted trips on the Cloudsplitter Gondola to the summit of Little Whiteface. Families will also be able to enjoy a drive up the mountain’s Veterans’ Memorial Highway, where even more breathtaking views from New York’s fifth high peak await. Saturday’s hours are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., while the Oktoberfest continues Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $16 for adults and $10 for juniors and seniors. The fall festivals continue the following weekend, Oct. 12-13, when the Olympic Jumping Complex plays host to the Flaming Leaves Festival and the Olympic Center welcomes back the second annual Lake Placid Brewfest. The annual Flaming Leaves Festival is from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days and admission is $16 for adults and $10 for juniors and seniors. Two-day passes are also available, $27 for adults and $16 for juniors and seniors, while the Olympic Sites Passport will also be honored for admission. From the Olympic Jumping Complex SaturdayÕ s, Oct. 12, festival fun moves to the Olympic CenterÕ s 1932 rink and the Lake Placid Brewfest, from 3 to 7 p.m. Open to everyone 21 years and older, the brewfest features 20-plus micro-brew companies from around the country. For more information about both festivals and ORDAÕ s Olympic venues, visit

ley said. Ò His presence among us is a wonderful reminder of the close communion that exists between the Successor of St. Peter and the Diocese of Ogdensburg. It is a great privilege to welcome him to northern New York State.Ó LaValley said that they are expecting about 2,000 Catholics from across the Diocese of Ogdensburg to attend. To help celebrate the event, Father Scott Seymour, pastor in Morrisonville and Treadwells Mill, is organizing a diocesan choir of 300 voices to lead music for the lit-

urgy. Ò This is a solemn Mass marking the Year of Faith and the New Evangelization,Ó Bishop LaValley said. Ò This celebration will be a significant event in the life and history of our diocese.Ó In order to help as many people come to hear from the Apostolic Nuncio as possible, the diocese will be arranging bus transportation to Lake Placid from communities across the diocese. Registration may be made through parishes.

Continued from page 1 Ò This is going to be a real shot in the arm for our small breweries in Upstate New York,Ó Schumer said. Ò Cutting the excise tax in half could mean about $200,000 in savings on those first 60,000 barrels at its current production, it could mean about $21,000 in the pocket of the Lake Placid Brewery, which will be put back into the brewery allowing them to create jobs and expand the brewery.Ó “The fact the they are growing and creating more jobs is everything that Chuck and I like to see in our communities,Ó Owens said. Ò It impacts our entire economy in the North Country.Ó Ò Not only does this provide for an industry but it provides for more excitement in coming to the area,Ó Jim McKenna of the Regional Office of Sustainable Tourism said. “This will allow us to continue to reflect the success of the industry,Ó Lake Placid Brewery owner Chris Ericson said. Ò I think that this is a really tangible thing for a company like ours.Ó The Lake Placid Brewery currently makes around 1,500 barrels of beer at their Lake Placid site and 6,000 barrels at their distribution company in Utica. Ò Twenty years ago, I got an at home brewing kit as a graduation present,Ó Ericson said. Ò Now I am standing on a deck looking over Mirror Lake with a congressman and a senator talking about the success of my brewing company.Ó

Willsboro resident Elise Stefanik to run for Congress

Sat & Sun

September 14 & 15

By Keith Lobdell WILLSBORO Ñ A small businesswoman who resides in Willsboro is one of the first challengers to throw her name into the race for Bill OwensÕ Congressional seat. Elise Stefanik has formally filed paperwork to become a candidate for the 21st District. Stefanik currently works in sales, marketing, and management in her familyÕ s business, Premium Plywood Products, Inc. Ò I have been very frustrated with the lack of leadership in Washington,Ó Stefanik said about her decision to run for Congress. Ò I have seen first-hand how hard my parents had to work to get a small business off the ground and I think we need representatives who have strong leadership and fight to create jobs and help grow small businesses in the North Country.Ó Having been interested in politics since high school, Stefanik was a member of the Harvard University Institute of Politics. After graduation, she experienced Washington at the highest levels from 2006 through 2009. Ò I worked for President George W. Bush in the Domestic Policy Council and the office of the Chief of Staff,Ó she said. Ò I thought it was the privilege of my life to see the decision making process at the highest level.Ó Stefanik added she learned a lot from her time in the West Wing about what she felt was proper leadership. Ò In the meetings with the Chief of Staff, everyone had a seat at the table and every opinion mattered,Ó she said. Ò That is not how all White Houses are run.Ó Most recently, she served as Director of debate preparation for 2012 Vice Presidential nominee Rep. Paul Ryan. Stefanik said that she has already been on the trail, visiting many towns within the 21st Congressional District, which includes Clinton, Franklin, St. Lawrence, Jefferson, Lewis, Hamilton, Essex, Warren, Washington and Fulton counties as well as parts of Herkimer and Saratoga counties.

10am to 5 pm

Elise Stefanik Ò I have spent a lot of time traveling the district and the number one priority from the people I have spoken to is passing policies that create jobs and that promote growth here,” Stefanik said. Ò Older people are leaving the state and taking small businesses with them and younger people are leaving because of the lack of jobs. That is why I am focusing my race on talking to voters and running the best campaign that I can.Ó In her travels, Stefanik said that there were two main issues that came up. “The first is tax reform, and I will work to bring about a more flat and fair tax system,” she said. Ò The other thing that I hear a lot about is Obamacare. A lot of people are certainly concerned over the next two years. There is concern by employers about cost and employees that are afraid their hours will get cut.Ó Stefanik will be challenging incumbent Bill Owens of Plattsburgh, who said he is not focused on the 2014 campaign season as of yet. Ò I am certainly not surprised that there will be a challenge,Ó Owens said. Ò I know of at least two others that have expressed an interest. A lot can still happen over the next six to eight months but right now, I’m just focused on doing my job.”

ELIZABETHTOWN-LEWIS LIONS Lady Lions enter 2013 season as the defending VII champ ELIZABETHTOWN — The defending Section VII/Class D champions will have several new faces in the 2013 lineup. The Elizabethtown-Lewis girls varsity soccer team lost seven starters to graduation from its 2012 championship squad. One thing the team did not lose, though, was coach Steve Denton, who after hinting at retirement decided to return for another season on the sidelines. “After winning our first title in 25 years, we will have a very young and inexperienced team,Ó Denton said. Ò I hope the girls will improve with each game with the leadership of our five-year starters in midfielder Caitie Decker and defender Lily Whalen. Sophomore Emma Disogra will be taking over in the goalie position and Juniors Jazmin Barnes and Sage Allott are returning starters in the midfield.” Lily Whalen, Caitie Decker, Savanna Graves and Angel Barnes are all seniors on the roster and are joined by juniors Sage Allott and Jazmin Barnes.

Lady Warriors seek improvement WILLSBORO Ñ The Willsboro girls varsity soccer team will look to use the 2013 Northern Soccer League Division II regular season as a proving ground in preparation for sectionals. Ò Hopefully, we can be competitive in every game throughout the season,Ó coach Mike Douglas said. Ò We play a very tough schedule, but that will help us get better prepared for sectionals. I want our team to get better with each practice and each game so we will be playing our best soccer around sectionals.Ó Douglas said that he has been impressed with the work ethic of the team early in the season. Ò Our overall team speed is better than is has been the past couple of years,Ó he said. Ò Hopefully, we can use that to our advantage. I would like to see continued improvement with possessing the ball and finding open players on our team rather than just kicking the ball. We are headed in the right direction, and the girls are making a conscious effort to improve upon this.Ó Douglas added that there are several players that will be vital to the Lady Warriors this season. Ò Stephanie Blanchard will be returning to start in the net for us, her third year as a varsity goalie,Ó he said. Ò Bridget Moran has a motor that does not stop. We will feed off her energy in the center of the field and look to her for leadership. Gabi Yeager has worked extremely hard to become one of our best players. We will

look to her for a little bit of everything. Amanda Henrichs has really good speed and is very aggressive. She has an opportunity to be a very dangerous attacking player for us.Ó The Lady Warriors roster includes seniors Kathryn Belzile, Taylor Crowningshield, Bridget Moran, Tiffani Tromblee (pictured left) and Gabi Yeager; juniors Stephanie Blanchard, Rachael Burt, Amanda Henrichs, Andrea OÕ Hara, Kelsey Sloper and Tory Wade; sophomores Taylor Bigelow and Jillian Dean; and freshman Trina Bigelow.

Rachel Knapp

CLINTONVILLE Ñ While the AuSable Valley girls varsity soccer team will be unable to defend their Section VII/Class C title because of their move up to Class B, their goal remains the same. Ò We anticipate that we will be in the running for the Class B championship and our goal is to return to intersectional play,Ó head coach Bruce Bourgeois said. Ò The level of skill by all three lines enables us to shoot with accuracy from further out and keep the pressure on our opponents to pin them on their half of the field.” The Patriots return several starters from the championship team and have depth in all three thirds of the field. Ò We expect to have a very good year on the backs of our outstanding defenders Logan Snow, Priscilla Coats, Alyssa Baughn and Tiffany Evens; and our hard hitting front of Meghan Strong, Taylor Saltus and Mollie Mashtare,Ó Bourgeois said. Ò But our true strength lies in our midfield centered by Rachel Knapp and supported by Madison Rondeau and Vanessa Garrow. Bryce Douglass is very capable in net.Ó Bourgeois said that the Patriots will look to play an up-tempo game and look to control possession. The Lady Patriots roster includes seniors Alyssa Baughn, Bryce Douglass, Ashlee Estes, Tiffany Evens, Rachel Knapp, Mollie Mashtare, Taylor Saltus and Logan Snow; juniors Priscilla Coats,

Keene girls seek top of Div. III KEENE VALLEY Ñ The Keene varsity girls soccer team is looking to improve on its 2012 season with a run at the Northern Soccer League Division III title this year. Ò The Keene girls soccer team is positioned to build off of last yearÕ s strong season,Ó new head coach Brittany Purdy said. Ò Eleven players are returning for the 2013 season and will be joined by 11 new faces. They will have strength in numbers and will be using that to their advantage on the outside midfield positions.” Purdy said that the team will have to look to replace several strong defenders but should be able to shore up the back third of the field. Ò The team lost strong defensive leaders last year to graduation and players relocating but will continue to have the leadership of their senior goalie, Tucker Geiger,Ó she said. Ò Naomi Peduzzi and Elaina Smith look to take over the defense while KeeneÕ s leading scorer, Hanna Whitney, will be back to control the midfield.” The Beavers will also look for contributions from three international students. Ò Sara Francino Gagliandi, one of KeeneÕ s exchange students from Brazil, will be stepping into the striker position,Ó Purdy said. Ò Fie Tims, from Denmark, and Clara Garcia Sanz, from Spain, are also joining the ranks this season.” The roster includes seniors Tucker Geiger, Kari LeClair, Katie Waltner and Sara Francio Gagliandi; juniors Naomi Peduzzi, Taylor Geiger, Kaley Garno Potter and Fie Tims; sophomores Grace Struges, Vanessa Heald, Amanda Bruha, Madison Gifford, Ciarra Ashe, Liza Amirault and Clara Garcia Sanz; freshmen Hanna Whitney (pictured), Elaina Smith, Bailey VanNess, Heather Abbott and Daria Venner; and eighth graders Elly Smith and Cori-Anne Stoner.

Runners hope to compete CLINTONVILLE Ñ The AuSable Valley boys and girls varsity cross country teams will look to compete in the CVAC. While having less than ideal numbers for the 2013 season, the Patriots will be fielding enough runners to compete in team events for both the boys and girls. Ò We have two rather small teams this year at AVCS,Ó head coach Raune Anne Hamilton said. Ò What we lack in number, we gain in character. These kids are so kind, polite, responsible and a pleasure to work with. We are excited to have the numbers (just barely) for a full boys and girls team this year.Ó The boys team includes senior Josh Ducharme; juniors Brandon Ruocco and Justin Cook; sophomores Aaron Turetsky and Lucas Finnegan; and freshmen Austin Smith, Micheal Guynup, Troy Straight, Alex Wilson and Casey Spear. Ò Half of our boys team will be running at the varsity level for the first time this year,” Hamilton said. The girls team will include juniors Rachel Ford (pictured), Emily Patenaude and Jessica Malskis along with sophomores Madison Hall, Ashley Guynup and Kaylee Dukett along with freshman Lydia Russom. Hamilton will be assisted by Danielle North.

Sports Patriots rally falls short against Chiefs in season opener

By Keith Lobdell SARANAC Ñ While the AuSable Valley varsity football team was able to make a furious comeback in the second quarter to tie their Sept. 7 game against Saranac, the Chiefs used a strong second half to score a 42-28 victory in the opening week of Section VII football. Ò We had a good mix of plays and we were clicking on all cylinders in the second quarter,Ó head coach Heith Ford said about the second 12 minutes of play where his team scored 20 points to enter half-

time tied with the Chiefs at 20-20. Ò We lost that toward the end.Ó After Saranac scored the first seven points of the game, the Patriots responded with a 12 play, 60 yard drive that culminated with a John Goodnough bootleg score off a play fake to back Dillon Savage. After trouble on the ensuing snap, the Patriots were behind 7-6. On the Chiefs next possession, Savage broke through the offensive line on the first play from scrimmage, scooped up a fumbled snap and returned it 20 yards for a touchdown to give the Patriots a 12-7 lead.

The Chief responded with the next two scores before Savage scored on a two yard touchdown run, following it up with a two-point conversion run to tie the game at 20-20. The Chiefs then outscored the Patriots 22-8 in the final 24 minutes, with AuSable’s lone score coming on another Goodnough bootleg run of six yards. Ò We had some key penalties and we did not have an answer for John Maye in the second half,Ó Ford said. Ò That was the difference.Ó Goodnough in his varsity debut was 3-10 passing for 112 yards while throwing a pair of interceptions, He also ran the ball 15 times for 45

yards and two scores. Savage ran the ball 20 times for 100 yards and the one score while adding a defensive touchdown. Jacob Ashline combined for 29 yards rushing and 44 yards receiving, while Chasm Perkett caught one ball for 54 yards. Connor Kennedy added one reception for 14 yards. The Patriots will open their home schedule Friday, Sept. 13, hosting the Plattsburgh High Hornets at 7:30 p.m. Ò We will lick our wounds and put together a plan that works as well as this one and hopefully leave with a better score,Ó Ford said.
