Stager named New York Professor of the year PAUL SMITHS Ñ Paul SmithÕ s College Prof. Curt Stager has been named the 2013 New York Professor of the Year by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education. Stager was selected from more than 350 top professors in the United States. Stager, a professor of natural science, has taught at Paul SmithÕ s since 1987. In addition to his dedication to undergraduate education, his paleoecology research has helped illuminate ancient climate conditions, and how the lessons of the past can be applied today; his 2011 book on the subject, Ò Deep Future: The Next 100,000 Years of Life on Earth,Ó received wide acclaim. Ò ItÕ s such an honor to be recognized by CASE with these other faculty members,Ó said Stager, who received the award in Washington, D.C., on Thursday. Ò IÕ m fortunate to be able to do work I love, in a place I love, with students who are really eager to learn Ð you canÕ t beat that combination.Ó John W. Mills, president of Paul SmithÕ s College, said StagerÕ s honor is well deserved.

Ò When Paul SmithÕ s talks about giving students a chance to learn side-by-side with faculty members who truly care about their success, nobody embodies that more than Curt Stager,Ó Mills said. Ò He has taken students across the globe to help him conduct research that in many cases they wouldnÕ t be Curt Stager conducting until graduate school. WeÕ re very proud to have him at Paul SmithÕ s.Ó This year, a state Professor of the Year was recognized in 36 states. CASE and the Carnegie Foundation have been

partners in offering the U.S. Professors of the Year awards program since 1981. Additional support for the program is received from Phi Beta Kappa, which sponsors an evening congressional reception, the Professional and Organizational Development (POD) Network in Higher Education and other higher education associations. To determine the winners, CASE assembled two preliminary panels of judges to select finalists. The Carnegie Foundation then convened the third and final panel, which selected four national winners. CASE and Carnegie select state winners from top entries resulting from the judging process. Stager was selected from faculty members nominated by colleges and universities throughout the country. The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching is an independent policy and research center that supports needed transformations in American education through tighter connections between teaching practice, evidence of student learning, the communication and use of this evidence, and structured opportunities to build knowledge.

Hamlets 3 unviels proposals for several area downtowns By Shawn Ryan RAY BROOK Ñ A meeting was held recently at the Adirondack Park Agency headquarters in Raybrook to unviel proposals for the ongoing Hamlets 3 project. Hamlets 3 is an initiative which looks at potential growth solutions for five hamlets in the Adirondack Park. It is funded by a DEC Smart Growth planning grant. The hamlets being considered are Caroga, in Fulton County in the Mohawk Valley, Indian Lake, Blue Mountain Lake and Long Lake in Hamilton County, and AuSable Forks in Essex County. Ò What weÕ re doing is looking at some of the positive development potential within the Adirondack Park map,Ó said Roger Trancik of Urban Design Consultants. Ò Our aim is really to get something done. To turn it into bricks and mortar.Ó Hamlets 3 has been in the works for five years, and follows the Hamlets 1 and Hamlets 2 projects, which took place in the mid 1980s. Representatives from all the hamlets except AuSable were present at the meeting. The development strategies put forth by Trancik are suggested solutions for issues peculiar to each hamlet, and each of the five proposals are markedly different. Public meetings were held recently in each hamlet, where several possibilities were discussed, and the resulting suggestions represent the consensus of those present at the meetings. It is now up to the individual hamlets to decide whether to pursue the Hamlets 3 proposals, and up to them as well to finance the projects. Ò ItÕ s now up to the communities to make the

commitments if they want to move forward,Ó said Dave Winchell, Citizen Participation Specialist with the Department of Environmental Conservation. In AuSable Forks, the Hamlets 3 proposal focused on establishing a new multi-generational housing development on property above the Ausable River flood plane. Several sites were considered, with a site off Rolling Mill Hill finally being chosen. Mention was made that AuSable is in line for funding assistance from New York Rising money, announced recently by Gov. Andrew Cuomo. It is the only hamlet of the five with an already available revenue source. In Hamilton County, proposals for the Ò Hamilton TrioÓ of hamlets were varied. The proposal for Indian Lake focused on refurbishing the core intersection area of Routes 28 and 30, and establishing a Ò Market GreenÓ area with adjacent housing clusters and fresh food marketplaces. The plan involved removing several old buildings in that area, among them the old Grand Union supermarket. Ò It would create a whole new vision or impression of that intersection,Ó said Trancik. In Blue Mountain Lake the plan was to add a large Adirondack-styled hotel across the road from the Adirondack Museum in order to add jobs to the community, and extend the tourist season. The belief is that bringing a large hotel into the area will also increase the possibility of more restaurants and businesses coming to Blue Mountain Lake. The proposal for Long Lake focused on the Jennings Pond area, and involved building a Ò Circularnodal waterfront park,Ó with walkways and Adirondack styled gazebos around the park. As part of the proposed project the town of Long Lake would

The open discussion that followed focused on the issue of how to pay for the proposals. Joining the three Hamilton County hamlets together in any funding projects was discussed as the most logical idea for initiating the projects. Trancik stressed that having a document like a

Juggling Your Budget? Advertise Small, Get Big Results! Call 518-873-6368

By Keith Lobdell E L I Z A B E T H TOWN Ñ Members of the Essex County Board of Supervisors put the wheels in motion to override New York StateÕ s two percent tax levy cap during a special meeting Nov. 18. Supervisors voted 15-2 in favor of introducing a local law to override the cap which would still need to go through a public hearing and a second vote of the county board where it would need to receive a 60 percent majority vote in order to receive passage. Supervisors Sharon Boisen (Essex) and Randy Preston (Wilmington) voted against the resolution. Minerva Supervisor Sue Montgomery-Corey, who was not in the chamber for the vote, said she would have voted in favor of the resolution. Ò At this juncture, this is to get the measure into the pipeline,Ó County Attorney Dan Manning said about the introductory resolution. Ò The resolution would have to be passed by a 60 percent majority vote before you pass your budget. Even if you pass the local law, that does not mandate that you have to be over the cap with your budget. There will also be a public hearing.Ó Board chairman and Jay Supervisor Randy Douglas said the hearing would either take place along with the public hearing on the

tentative Essex County Budget Nov. 25 or before the Dec. 2 regular board meeting. The tentative 2014 county budget, submitted Nov. 15 by County Manager Dan Palmer, called for a 15.16 percent increase to the tax levy from $16,461,016 in 2013 to $18,955,771 proposed for 2014. Palmer said the 2014 budget was the first step in a five year plan to bring Essex County back to having a balanced budget. Ò Last year we tried to develop a three year plan to get us back to where we would no longer have to use fund balance and get us back to a balanced budget,Ó Palmer said. Ò This year, we looked at a five year plan where we would be back to a balanced budget by 2018. The other option was to make it a one year plan where you would have a 33 percent increase and then be back to a balanced budget. After discussion, it was determined that a compromise should be reached and that is why we filed the budget with a 15 percent tax levy increase. The larger the increase in the first year of an recovery plan, the larger the benefits you receive at the end of the plan.Ó Palmer said that the plan would call for a 10 percent increase to the levy in year two, eight percent in year three, five percent in year four and two percent in year five. Ò It is just a matter of how

you spread this increase out to the taxpayers, if you do it over three years or over five years,Ó Palmer said. Ò This will still be below the tax rate that was in place in 2004. We have still not exceeded that under the plan that was presented.Ó Palmer also suggested to board members that any cuts made from the tentative plan needed to be ones that would last. Ò If you are going to make an adjustment to the budget, then it should be a permanent adjustment,Ó Palmer said. Ò If you are going to take something out that is not permanent, then you are going to have issues in coming years.Ó The 2014 tentative budget calls for $94,917,464 in spending, a .09 percent drop from $95,000,115 in 2013. Revenues are expected to increase from $71,689,099 in 2013 to $72,938,431, leaving an expected shortfall of $21,979,033. Palmer said that the county would use $3,023,262 of appropriated fund balance to bring the levy number down to $18,955,771. Ò Our next budget is almost the same as the budget that you had last year,Ó Palmer said. Ò The Horace Nye sale and sales tax increases are helping to hold down the budget numbers over the next few years.Ó The board has until Dec. 20 to make final changes to the tentative spending plan.

A tale of two bridges


he winter months are fast approaching with all of their roadway dangers Ñ s now, slush, black ice and generally unsafe driving conditions. In the town of Elizabethtown, especially at the end of Lincoln Pond Road, the elements have always made for a challenging commute into the county seat. Now, that commute will be made a little more challenging. The New York State Department of Transportation announced this week that the bridge at the base of the intersection of Lincoln Pond Road and Route 9N will be bottle-necked to one lane, watched over by a three way traffic signal system. The lights will be placed at an intersection that, in the best of conditions, is one of the trickiest in Essex County. On the one side, you have a sharp slope coming down from Lincoln Pond Road, with several sharp and winding curves with varying elevations, making it hard to see if there is a car stopped in front of you until you are almost on top of it. On the other side, you have a pair of severely sharp turns coming in from Westport and I-87, again allowing for limited visibility even if drivers are operating their vehicles at a safe speed. The intersection is one of the busiest in the county. Many of the countyÕ s 500 employees come from towns like Westport, Moriah, Crown Point and Ticonderoga, using the two roads as their way into and from work. Anyone that has driven into Elizabethtown between 7:30 and 7:50 a.m. knows how long the wait currently is at the blinking light at the intersection of 9 and 9N. Now, the wait will be compounded at the new lights, where cars from three different directions will have to wait their turn. With all of this, the key words for drivers are going to have to be patience and safety. Drivers are going to have to have patience with each other and with the lights, which will be programmed based on traffic patterns throughout the day. Drivers are also going to have to make sure that they mind their speed and keep their eyes on the road ahead of them. While everyone who drives into Elizabethtown knows the patterns and what to expect, all of those patterns are now going to change and every driver must exercise caution to make sure they keep everyone else safe. This means slow down, keep you eyes off your phone or mirror, and be mindful of the weather conditions. For the DOT, they are going to have to take every precaution to make sure the intersection is safe. After all, one of the reasons there is not a full traffic light in Elizabethtown is because of the downhill grade coming from the county government center. At this new light, you will now have two downhill grades that are more acute funneling into the same junction. Reduced speed limits will need to be posted well ahead of the intersections along with signage and mobile billboards alerting drivers to the changes. These signs are going to have to stick around for a while, too, because once everyone gets used to the changes, it will be summer and all the summer traffic will return without a knowledge of the new traffic pattern. The fact of the matter is that the bridge has been red flagged by the DOT and has to be replaced because it has gotten to the point it can no longer withstand a proper traffic load. Given the importance of the intersection to central Essex County as well as the government center, we would hope that the Board of Supervisors would ask for a more expeditious ending to this matter. In Wadhams, bridge replacement work began in early spring this year and just recently concluded. While that was an inconvenience to many, it was not the main lifeline for a majority of workers in the region. It was also not the only way to get from one major town to another, as motorists could use the Lake Shore Road from Westport or County Route 12 from Elizabethtown to reach the towns of Essex and Willsboro in near identical times to traveling through Wadhams. In this case, commuters would have to commute through Westport, thus increasing traffic on their roads, and use one of several alternative routes in order to avoid the potential congestion or safety issues. We trust that the DOT and whoever is contracted to do the work on the bridge will do an outstanding job that will benefit the residents of the county for years to come, but while we stress patience for motorists when it comes to this latest North Country roadway inconvenience, we also must ask, canÕ t you speed it up a little? After all, it took just 18 months to replace the 2,200-foot span over Lake Champlain in Crown Point. You could easily throw a paperweight underhand in a brisk headwind the full length of the small bridge over the Boquet here in Elizabethtown. It would seem that it could be replaced in less than a year. Ñ Denton Publications Editorial Board

Red Riding Hood heads up the prosecution with Evil Stepmother of Cinderella fame serving as the defense attorney. With the trial being overseen by the Fairy Godmother, a slew of the Wicked Witch’s alleged victims testify against her. Although she may have “wicked” in her name, council for the witch drums up plenty of witnesses to defend the Wicked Witch’s good character. The Trial of the Wicked Witch is a fresh, sassy take on many classic fairytales making the audience rediscover the stories they thought they knew.

6 - Valley News • TL

Paying proper respects To the Valley News: Last week I was informed of the passing of Bob Purdy. Bob was a longtime family friend and confidante. I was appalled when I read the article in the Press Republican the day after his death which opened with numerous irrelevant items from BobÕ s distant past, including innuendo and misleading news stories from decades ago that were no longer newsworthy. ÒD onÕ t speak ill of the dead,Ó is an ancient code of common respect given to the departed. Though the Press Republican countered many calls and emails of complaint it got from the public by saying that the article, Òw as not a eulogy,Ó 24 hours after oneÕ s death is a tasteless time-frame for accusations against a man who was cleared of any charges. Though the article mentioned BobÕ s public service as Keene supervisor, the article did not mention how much time and energy Bob gave to the Town of Keene as a resident, such as the many times he drove the ambulance or fought fires, or the years that he would make sure everyone in his small town had Thanksgiving dinner or Christmas presents. So many people knew these stories of his many kind acts that it would have been easy for the paper to learn of them and instead write a true human interest story. Bob was a man with a heart of gold. The Town of Keene is a very special place and last weekÕ s mean-spirited article will not knock down the communityÕ s spirit. Keene went right to work re- building hours after Tropical Strom Irene without knowing what government aid they would receive, because like Bob, those in the North Country look out for those in need. That is his legacy. The Purdy family will go on as Bob leaves behind a strong family and countless friends who will not let his memory be tarnished. Andrew Quinn Lake Placid

Rail trail thoughts To the Valley News: As someone who is an avid bicycle rider, cross country skier and hiker I want to weigh in on the discussion about the possible conversion of the existing railroad corridor to a multiuse recreational trail. Regarding cycling, there are two basic types of cyclists; those who are road bikers and those who are off road or mountain bikers. Mountain bikers like a trail system that has lots of changing terrain and challenging twists and turns. The trail surface should be dirt and mud is accepted as part of the pleasure of the rides. Road bikers on the other hand most prefer paved surfaces and are looking for Òl oopÓ trails or for through routes that can be used for commuting or for long distance travel. Both groups enjoy having good parking and or amenities near the trails they want to use. My wife and I have done extensive riding in many parts of the

November 23, 2013 US and elsewhere and have experienced many forms of bike trails. Rail to trail conversions like the Warren County trail in the Glens Falls Lake George area and the Cape Cod Rail Trail are examples of excellent systems. Both are paved, both are in areas where there is a large recreational population and multiple access points. They both also have some interesting terrain along the route as they do not stick just to prior rail routes. On the other hand, the NYS Erie Canal Trail, the C&O Canal Trail and Le PetitÕ Nord Rail Trail in the Montreal area are unpaved and incredibly flat trails. We have ridden sections of both of these canal trails and became bored after just 15 miles and sought out nearby roads to complete our rides. The PetitÕ Nord Trail was even more discouraging. Every few miles we had to dismount and work our way around downed trees or other obstructions due to limited maintenance. A flat rail trail near Red Wing Minnesota that is paved is better but even that one is most enjoyable when used as a loop using roads for the return trip. My point here is that if we convert the local rail corridor to a trail to be used for biking, it will need to be paved to make it enjoyable and useful. It is too flat for mountain bikers to enjoy and too long for road bikers to want to use unless paved so it can be ridden at a decent pace. From a hiking or cross country ski perspective, a similar argument is true. The loop trails we have such as HenryÕ s Woods and the traditional Adirondack trails are more interesting because they have variable terrain and offer a round trip as opposed to an out and back trip that the rail trail offers. As a consequence, while discussing the advantages of conversion to a recreational trail sound good, the reality is that this is not a likely big draw with one exception. It will be a great match for the snow mobile enthusiasts. Removing the rails will make this corridor more snow mobile friendly and will provide a great throughway for them. On the rail side, the problem is that we are not looking at how to use this corridor in the 21st century. The best use is not for an engine pulling a few cars whether passenger or freight. A corridor like this needs multiple trips per day for smaller numbers of users. In Europe, they have developed very successful rail routes serving small and rural communities like ours by using single self propelled cars on the tracks. Having such service between the towns along the whole route from Utica to Lake Placid could indeed serve a real purpose. I look at some of the bigger issues we face down the road such as perhaps the need to combine the schools in Tupper Lake, Saranac Lake and Lake Placid into a single district. Using a well timed rail service between these three communities could allow for speedy and efficient transport of students between the communities. We should protect the rail corridor but at the same time we do need to consider a side by side trail, especially between Saranac Lake and Lake Placid and near each other communities along the route but donÕ t expect an economic boon by replacing the rails with a single multi use trail. David G. Welch Lake Placid

Support hospice services To the Valley News: November is National Hospice and Palliative Care Month. Many people facing life-limiting illness focus on thoughts of loss and separation. Awareness of this critical need allows us to remind your readers that hospice and palliative care are truly about living. Over the past 40 years the number of hospice programs in the US has grown from 1,500 to more than 5,000. High Peaks Hospice and Palliative Care is a resource in our community that provides comfort, dignity and respect for people at a time of need. Professional medical staff, social workers, chaplains, and trained volunteers work with patients and families to tailor expert medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support according to their preferences. Hospice works with a patientÕ s personal physician to bring continuity of care to the highest level. Other support services help with managing lifeÕ s practical tasks as well as complicated issues related to their situation. Hospice can help to resolve conflict, to deal with financial issues and submit medical bills, and to face the burden of grief. Staff and volunteers assume these responsibilities so that patients and their families can live the fullest life possible. Hospice care providers accept lifeÕ s challenges. They are committed to increasing their skills and understanding in order to enhance the care they provide to each person they are privileged to serve. Hospice care is covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most insurance plans. Care is provided wherever the person lives: in their home or at an extended care facility. Care is available to people of all ages, with any life-limiting illness, regardless of their ability to pay. If you or a loved one is facing a life-limiting illness, learning more about hospice and palliative care could be much more than you think. Meg Wood Executive Director High Peaks Hospice and Palliative Care

Thankful for dinner support To the Valley News: We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who came to our first Chicken-n-Biscuit Dinner at the Holy Name Center, Au Sable Forks, on Election Day. Special thanks to our surprise visitor, the New York State health inspector (all was well). We are appreciative of all who were able to come and enjoyed the food and fellowship. The response was greater than we anticipated and we apologize for the inconvenience to those we were not able to serve. We will double our quantities for next year and hope you will give us the opportunity to serve you our wonderful dinner on November 4, 2014. May the coming holy seasons bring all of you GodÕ s Blessings. In ChristÕ s service, Fr. Kris Lauzon Pastor

Full power, full moon


first took notice of the full power of a Full Moon during my two year stint working as a Residence Hall Director at Plattsburgh State. Invariably, I was the one who always pulled the short straw and ended up as the Director on Duty during a full moon weekend. In the course of my first two tours of duty scouting the campus for trouble, I encountered more drunken students, accidental injuries and similar instances of nonconforming behaviors than I experienced for the remainder of the school year. And mind you, Plattsburgh State was a really notorious party school during the 1970Õ s and Ô 80Õ s. Exhibitions of bad behavior and misconduct were the rule, rather than an anomaly. The Residence Hall staff always worked closely with the Campus Police to lower the level of disobedience. However, we quickly learned where the term Ô lunacyÕ comes from, as we witnessed the normally sane students run amuck like lunatics for two full nights of near full lunar exposure. On weekends with a forecast of a full moon, the Director of Residence Life regularly issued Moonlight Madness alerts to warn of bad behavior. Janitorial staffers often used their personal days on Mondays, following a full moon event. There was usually just too much of a mess for them to deal with. By now, readers of this column are probably wondering what any of this ancient history has to do with a current outdoor column. Well, the point of this background story is to illustrate the power moon phases affect all animals, even humans. Last weekend, many whitetail hunters came to realize this power, as the Rutting Moon came to pass. This moon phase, is often confused with the Hunter Õ s Moon which occurred on Sept. 19 this year. The Rutting Moon, which occurred on Sunday, Nov. 17 is the single, most important date in a deer hunter Õ s year, as it signals the peak of the rut, the whitetails mating season. By the time you read these words, the rut will have already peaked, and the bucks will still be looking for love in all the wrong places. As evidenced by the behavior of college students I witnessed in the 1970Õ s, all animals are affected by the pull of the moon. Animal House wasnÕ t a documentary film, but it wasnÕ t all fiction either. Fortunately for deer hunters, evidence has well established that a majority of whitetail does will be in peak estrus through the end of the week. This is also a timeframe when bucks get weak in the knees, after chasing down all the does they can find. It is also a time when hunters get weak in the knees after putting in some long cold days on the stand, waiting for their buck to stroll by. Over the past weekend, it was evident that deer were on the move. We had over a half dozen sightings, with just two shorts days in camp. If the weather cooperates, (read snow and cold), I expect there will be a lot of deer taken this weekend.

Whitetails 101: The Learning Curve

My first trip into hunting camp came at the ripe old age of 11, which is considered rather late by most Adirondack standards. On my first trip, I was a guest at the Niambi Hunting Club, which was located near North Creek. My own children first went to hunting camp when they

were still too young to walk all the way. My packbasket always got heavier as the closer I got to camp, with the girls curled up among the hunting clothes, food and other essentials. I made up for my late start by asking questions, and listening to a lot of experienced hunters. Although I am far from an experienced hunter, I do recognize some of the best advice IÕ ve learned in my quest to improve my odds of harvesting a buck. Unfortunately, there is not one, single solution to the puzzle. Rather, it is comparable to a long series of steps that must be taken in order to reach the top of the hill. Shooting skills are just the beginning. Scent control probably ranks second. Learn to monitor the wind regularly. A pocket full of puffball mushrooms is very useful in this regard. A major key to the process begins by observing deer, which is very difficult to do if you donÕ t know where to find them. When you do find deer, which are often out in the fields during the late summer, take the time to study their shapes. Note the flat back, the four posts of legs, the flicker of white from the tail. Other obvious tell tail signatures are the black dot of a nose, the black sheen of a hoof, the square shape of a full body or the point of an ear. You need to get really good at recognizing just the parts and pieces of a deer, before youÕ ll ever have a chance to see a whole one. They have an amazing ability to blend into the natural cover and simply disappear. It may seem to be difficult, but finding and recognizing deer are the easy part of the puzzle. The really tough part is controlling your emotions, and the accompanying adrenaline. Buck fever isnÕ t a joke, as most hunters have experienced a bout or two of the malady. It begins with the shakes and ends with deep breathing and alot of Ò what ifÕ s.Ó In between is usually a bit of hell. It often begins with the first sighting, and grows as the target gets nearer. On average, a hunter has less than seven seconds from first sight to final shot. ThatÕ s about the length of time it took you to read this paragraph. In that timeframe, a hunter must confirm the deer is actually a buck, and small horns are often difficult to see when theyÕ re hidden by large ears. It is an almost impossible feat to accomplish when the background is all brown, and especially when it includes beech whips. This must be accomplished as your breathing becomes difficult and your knees grow weak. On my first experience hunting with a bow, I could hardly move when a deer appeared directly below my stand. I was frozen like a teenager awaiting a kiss on the first date. I didnÕ t know what to do, as my heart was nearly pounding out of my chest. But I remembered the advice of a friend. DonÕ t look at the whole deer, focus on one point of aim and be sure to follow through and watch the deer Õ s reaction. Often the reaction will provide an indication of your aim. Mark the line it runs in your mind. One of the most common mistakes a beginner makes is

TL • Valley News - 7

Former Elizabethtown resident, Fred Myers sent along these photos of some of the trophy whitetail deer he has been raising on a large private ranch in Texas. Even though the whitetails were still in velvet when the photos were taken, the size of the headgear is truly amazing. Fred and his brother Tom continue to spend their time on the hunt whenever time permits. It is easy to understand the reason why. to rush things after a shot. It is only natural to want to hurry over and see if you hit it. Fight the urge. One old timer advised me to pack a pipe full of tobacco immediately after you shoot, and donÕ t go looking for the deer until youÕ ve finished it. If you missed, youÕ ll be calmed down. If you hit it, the deer will likely have run a ways and died. Never pressure a deer thatÕ s been hit, they can run a long ways on adrenaline, and itÕ s always a long drag home. Leave your hat, or some other item as a marker on the location where your took the shot. It will help you to find where the deer was when it was hit. A hunter Õ s best weapons are patience, persistence and perseverance. It is a mindset that becomes a mantra. It is a learned behavior that is only achieved through confidence. It is not fun to go back out on a cold miserable day when the wind is whipping snow into your eyes and the only thing you can see is your own breath. Be on your watch in the dark, and exit the woods after the sun has set.ThatÕ s what flashlights are made for and itÕ s what real hunters are made of.

DEC rids Adirondack pond of non-native fish to restore fishery LONG LAKE Ñ The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) recently completed a major effort to eradicate non-native fish from Lower Sargent Pond in Hamilton County, DEC Regional Director Robert Stegemann announced today. The pond will be stocked with fish next year to reestablish the high quality, naturally reproducing native brook trout fishery that had existed there before its population was depleted due to the presence of the non-native fish. Ò Native brook trout populations have been significantly reduced in the Adirondacks and other areas throughout the east, but we are committed to restoring these populations in local waters,Ó said Director Stegemann. Ò This tremendous coordinated effort will ensure the continued existence of a natural aquatic community and provide a high quality wilderness fishing experience for anglers.” Providing a high quality wilderness fishing experience on Lower Sargent Pond promotes Gov. CuomoÕ s Ò NY Open for Hunting and Fishing Initiative,Ó which has improved recreational activities for in-state and out-of-state sportsmen and sportswomen, and boosted tourism opportunities throughout the state. This initiative includes the streamlining of hunting and fishing

licensing along with reduced license fees, improved access for fishing at various sites across the state and increased regional hunting and recreational opportunities. The eradication of non-native fish, followed by restocking with native brook trout is a key component of DECÕ s Brook Trout Restoration Program. DEC is a partner in the Eastern Brook Trout Joint Venture (http://easternbrooktrout. org/), which is working to protect, restore and enhance brook trout populations and habitats across their native range. For decades Lower Sargent Pond was considered a high quality fishery, which sustained a natural reproducing brook trout population. It was one of the most popular fly-in fishing destinations in the Adirondacks, and many anglers would walk the two miles into the pond to fish for brook trout. As the abundance of largemouth bass increased in the pond, the brook trout population severely declined. In 2012, no young brook trout were present; only large, older brook trout that had been hatched before the bass population had grown. The decline in the brook trout population was not due to overfishing. The primary causes were illegal fish stocking and use of bait fish.

The eradication of non-native fish from a water body is known as a Ò reclamation.Ó The reclamation procedure is used to return the water to a historic natural aquatic community, provide higher quality fishing opportunities and, where possible, to reintroduce endangered fish species such as round whitefish. The reclamation of the 131-acre Lower Sargent Pond is the largest reclamation in New York State in several decades. A considerable amount of resources and a extensive coordination were needed to complete the reclamation over a five-day period. The effort included the participation of dozens of DEC staff from various regions and programs, and assistance from the State Police Aviation Unit for helicopter transport of personnel, equipment and supplies. There were 37 trips by helicopter during the project, but many workers still had to walk two miles to and from the nearest road carrying equipment and supplies. Non-native fish, such as bass, yellow perch and golden shiner, negatively impact the native fish communities and ecosystems of Adirondack waters. Non-native fish prey on the eggs and young of native fish. They out compete brook trout and other native fish by consuming large quantities of zooplankton (very small

Taste of the North Country brings out local flavors and fun in Plattsburgh By Katherine Clark PLATTSBURGH Ñ The Taste of the North Country was savored at the North Country Chamber of CommerceÕ s annual fundraiser Nov. 7. Ò It was bigger than ever, just great food, great people and a chance for people to learn about different area businesses and their services and products,Ó said Jody Parks, Executive Vice President of North Country Chamber of Commerce. The festivities brought more than 800 people and about 24 vendors out for a night of food tasting combined with silent and live auctions at the 16th annual event. Ò This is one of our biggest annual fundraisers,Ó Parks said. Ò The money we raise helps us provide services to local businesses and helps keep the cost of membership down.Ó Between the roughly 800 tickets sold and the more than 350 live and silent auction items, Parks said the Chamber raised about $25,000. The event featured food and drink from numerous chamber businesses and vendors. The auctions featured a variety of items including: gift cards, services such as oil changes and spa treatments, furniture, advertising packages, travel and stay at local resorts, gift baskets, clothing, and more. Attendees were invited to take a tasting tour around the room to try desserts, entrees, drinks and more from area businesses. Restaurants and food providers in attendance included:

aquatic animals) and other prey food that the native fish feed upon. It is illegal to move fish from one water body to another without a permit from DEC. The possession or use of fish as bait is prohibited in Lower Sargent Pond and many other trout ponds in the Adirondacks to prevent the introductions of non-native fishes. Adirondack heritage strain Little Tupper brook trout will be stocked in the pond next year. It is projected that in the next three to five years, Lower Sargent Pond will once again be a high quality wilderness brook trout fishing destination. Brook trout thrive on a diet of insects and other invertebrates, and grow to a large size in ponds that do not have minnows as forage. The current state record brook trout is a 6 pound fish caught in an Adirondack wilderness pond that contains no other fish species. Minnows can become abundant in a pond or lake and compete with brook trout for food Ð decreasing the brook trout population.

VN-11/23-12/28/20136TC-53997 ----------------------------PUBLIC NOTICE IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER The Village of Keeseville Has Levels of Haloacetic Acids (HAAs) Above

Drinking Water Standards Our water system has violated a drinking water standard. Although this is not an emergency, as our consumers, you have a right to know what happened, what you should do, and what we are doing to correct this situation. We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants. The violation is a result of water samples collected in 2012 and 2013. The average concentration of those samples exceeds the maximum contaminant level (MCL) for Total Haloacetic Acids. The MCL for Total Haloacetic Acids is 60 mcg/l (micrograms per liter). The average concentration of the Total Haloacetic Acids taken from October 2012 through September 2013 was 72.9 mcg/l. What should I do? If you have specific health concerns, consult your doctor. You may also wish to use

an alternative water supply as your primary drinking water source (e.g. bottled water certified by NYS DOH). What does this mean? This is not an immediate risk. If it had been, you would have been notified immediately. Haloacetic acids are a group of chemical that includes mono-, di-, and trichloroacetic acids and mono- and dibromoacetic acids. Haloacetic acids are formed in drinking water during treatment by chlorine, which reacts with certain acids that are in naturally-occurring organic material (e.g., decomposing vegetation such as tree leaves, algae or other aquatic plants) in surface water sources such as rivers and lakes. The amount of haloacetic acids in drinking water can change from day to day, depending on the temperature, the amount of organic material in the water, the amount of chlorine added, and a variety

of other factors. Drinking water is disinfected by public water suppliers to kill bacteria and viruses that could cause serious illnesses. Chlorine is the most commonly used disinfectant in in New York State. For this reason, disinfection of drinking water by chlorination is beneficial to public health. Some studies of people who drank chlorinated drinking water for 20 to 30 years show that long term exposure to disinfection by-products (possibly including haloacetic acids) is associated with an increased risk for certain types of cancer. However, how long and how frequently people actually drank the water as well as how much haloacetic acids the water contained is not known for certain. Therefore, we do not know for sure if the observed increased risk for cancer is due to haloacetic acids, other disinfection by-prod-

ucts, or some other factor. The individual haloacetic acids, dichloroacetic acid and trichloroacetic acid, cause cancer in laboratory animals exposed to high levels over their lifetimes. Dichloroacetic acid and trichloroacetic acid are also known to cause other effects in laboratory animals after high levels of exposure, primarily on the liver, kidney and nervous system and on their ability to bear healthy offspring. Chemicals that cause effects in animals after high levels of exposure may pose a risk to humans exposed to similar or lower levels over long periods of time. What happened? What is being done? We are working with a consulting engineer and the New York State Department of Health to evaluate the water supply and researching options to correct the problem. For more information, please contact the

Village Office at 8349059. VN-11/23/2013-1TC54000 ----------------------------LEGAL NOTICE Notice of the Willsboro Fire Commissioners election to be held on December 10, 2013.
