By Seth Lang ELIZABETHTOWN Ñ Officials throughout the region are using more sand and salt on area roads this winter. An unusual number of ice storms and temperature fluctuations have many local highway departments exhausting their supplies at a rapid pace. Ò The ice storms weÕ ve had this year have demanded a significant more amount of sand and salt than normal snow storms,Ó said Westport Highway Superintendent Dennis Westover. Ò WeÕ ve already used what we did all of last year and thereÕ s still a lot of winter left.Ó The town of Moriah is facing a similar plight, according to Moriah Highway Superintendent Jamie Wilson. Ò WeÕ ve depleted most of our reserve, and still have not received a salt order we placed before Christmas,Ó Wilson said. According to the Essex County Department of Public Works Supervisor Anthony LaVigne, the cost of transportation to the county is compounding the problem. Ò Essex County has the highest cost of transportation because itÕ s the furthest distance from any of the sources,Ó LaVigne said. Ò If, in fact, there is a demand for more supply we can purchase it from a privately contracted company and there would be no additional cost because our bid is done on an annual basis,Ó LaVigne said. LaVigne pointed out that the county tries to keep at least a 30 percent reserve at all times, maintaining 9,000 10,000 yards for an estimated annual use of 6,000 yards. CONTINUED ON PAGE 4

Local Business effected by APA Classification By Seth Lang NEWCOMB Ñ For local business owners Ruth and Dave Olbert the recent classification given by the Adirondack Park Agency (APA) on the Essex Chain of Lakes came as fairly pleasing news. The Olberts own Cloud-Splitter Outfitters, which offers year-round cabin and outdoor equipment rentals and access to unspoiled wilderness on the Hudson River. Ò More access means more people and

weÕ re looking into ways to expand,Ó said Dave Olbert. Ò The biggest obstacle right now is financing our expansion.“ The 6,955 acre tract of land known as the Essex Chain of Lakes, southwest of Newcomb is named for its eight lakes and ponds. It was acquired by the state and recently classified by the Adirondack Park Agency as primitive. Under the primitive classification motorboats will not be permitted. First and Pine lakes will remain open to floatplanes and access points will be strategically located in

Wild Forest, to ensure easy access to all. The agency rejected a DEC proposal to allow planes to land on the largest in the chain, Third Lake. Motor vehicles will not have access in this primitive area, but disabled people will be allowed to drive to Fifth Lake along a short Wild Forest corridor. Most local officials were hoping the chain would be classified “Wild Forest”, which would have opened access to motor vehicles, floatplanes, motorboats and snowmobiles. CONTINUED ON PAGE 4

Minerva Volunteer Fire Department & Rescue Squad completes an active year By Mike Corey













MINERVA Ñ The year 2013 proved to be yet another very busy one for the Minerva Volunteer Fire Department & Rescue Squad, which is staffed by an extremely dedicated group of community volunteers. Whether responding to someone having chest pain/difficulty breathing at 3 in the morning, quickly heading out to a chimney fire, standing-by with the ambulance for a community event, or responding to a motor vehicle accident with personal injuries, department personnel do what they do best: use their emergency medical and firefighting skills to help CONTINUED ON PAGE 4

Minerva citizens participate in the shot heard around New York State By Mike Corey MINERVA Ñ Shots were heard at the Cuzzacrea home at the end of John Brannon Road in Olmstedville at noon on Saturday, Jan. 11. It was a coordinated effort, and it happened in various locations throughout New York State. One shot was fired at noon by six gun-owners at the CuzzacreasÕ in a symbolic effort to protest the NYS SAFE Act, which was passed by the state legislature and signed into law on Jan. 15, 2013. More participants were expected, but miserable weather that day kept people away from John Brannon Road. Sponsored by the Springville Field and Stream Club of Springfield, NY, all sportsmanÕ s clubs and interested individuals were urged to spread the word about Ò The Shot Heard Around New York State.Ó Both Pat and Steve Cuzzacrea are very passionate about what the SAFE (Secure Ammunition & Firearms Enforcement) Act means to them as hunters and defenders of the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Pat summarized it this way: Ò ItÕ s not really about the hunting Ð itÕ s all about our second amendment rights.Ó Carol Frasier, a Minerva resident and gun owner, was upset about the new law. According to her: Ò TheyÕ re trying to take our guns away from usÓ . Steve Cuzzacrea is unhappy with how the law was proposed and passed in the first place. Ò Cuomo pushed the law through in the middle of the night without the proper procedures,Ó he said.

On Jan. 15, 2013, Gov. Andrew Cuomo used a Ò message of necessityÓ to waive the usual three-day period for passing legislation; Steve, and others, believe this effort was improper. According to the information found on the Springville Field and Stream Club Facebook

page, Ò All gun owners, hunters, and shooters will fire in a legal, safe mannerÓ as part of the effort, and thatÕ s what occurred at the CuzzacreasÕ that day. Both Steve and Pat attended the anti-SAFE Act rally at the New York State capitol on Jan. 19, 2013. They said

that 14,000 people concerned about Second Amendment rights attended that rally with them. The CuzzacreasÕ maintain very strong feelings about these rights and will continue to support the repeal of the New York State SAFE Act.

DEC, Camp Santanoni to host open house winter weekends By Seth Lang NEWCOMB Ñ Great Camp Santanoni is offering three Ò Open HouseÓ weekends this winter. Starting Jan. 18-20, and continuing on Feb. 15-17 and March 15-17, cross-country skiers and snowshoers can take advantage of short interpretive tours with AARCH (Adirondack Architectural Heritage) staff at the Main Lodge. This access provides visitors a wonderful 9.8-mile round trip through the great Adirondack outdoors. Ò The trip lends itself to a variety of skill levelsÓ said Susan Arena, AARCH program director. Ò On these weekends guests donÕ t have to worry about skiing the trail alone as there are always a number of people around.Ó Guests will also have rare winter access to both the gate lodge and main lodge. The ArtistÕ s Studio, a stone building near the main lodge on the shores of Newcomb Lake, will be open as a warming shelter for guests. Coffee, tea and hot chocolate will be available and the public is asked to bring their own cups. Also, the Adirondack Interpretive Center will provide snowshoes to lend to visitors at the Gate Lodge. The event will be hosted by DEC, AARCH and SUNY ESF as well as the town of Newcomb. Located off Route 28N in Newcomb (Essex County), Great Camp Santanoni, dates back to 1892. It is the only great camp entirely in public ownership and is a National Historic Landmark. The camp is known for some of the finest examples of local Adirondack craftsmanship and architectural detail. In its prime, the estate included more than 40 buildings in three complexes and encompassed 12,900 acres. A gatehouse at the campÕ s entrance, a farm complex, and the main camp on Newcomb Lake,

4.7 miles from the gatehouse. The massive main camp, a 15,000 square foot structure with 5,000 square feet of porches, includes 24 rooms, seven bathrooms and nine fireplaces. The main hall provides views of Newcomb Lake and surrounds a massive fieldstone fireplace open on both ends. The intricate interior trim includes birch bark wallpaper, cedar twig molding and split-log wainscoting that all remains today. Ò The nicest part about skiing into the trail is being able to get out of the elements and warm up before the trek back,Ó said Joe Hackett, Adirondack guide. Ò ItÕ s a steady, comfortable climb in and about a one-half mile decline to the main camp.Ó Guests who have never experienced Santanoni are in for a real treat; those that have will enjoy the familiar serenity of winter at the great camp. The buildings will be open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Reservations are not required. In addition to the popular 9.8-mile round trip from the Gate Lodge to the Main Lodge, cross-country skiers and snowshoers are encouraged to take the half mile-trail that connects Camp Santanoni to the nearby Adirondack Interpretive Center Õ s 3.6-mile trail system. The Center Õ s buildings will be open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on all three days of the Winter Weekends in January and February and on the Saturday and Sunday of the March Winter Weekend. Ò ESF is excited to partner with DEC, town of Newcomb and AARCH to help expand how Great Camp Santanoni is used,Ó said Paul Hai of SUNY ESFÕ s Northern Forest Institute, which manages the Adirondack Interpretive Center. Ò Newcomb is a fantastic town, rich with history, recreation and educational opportunities. Collaborations like this grow our town while increasing visitorsÕ and residentsÕ appreciation

and understanding of the Adirondacks. We are looking forward to working together on more programs and creative ideas in Newcomb.Ó While people may visit Camp Santanoni 365 days a year, the buildings are not typically open to the public during the winter months. Additional open house weekends may be considered based on the popularity and success of these three weekend events. Ò We are delighted to be part of these winter open house weekends again and look forward to welcoming skiers and snowshoers there at a very beautiful and peaceful time of year,Ó said Steven Engelhart, Executive Director of AARCH. Ò Last year, over eight days, we had more than 300 people make the ten mile round-trip outing into Santanoni and we thoroughly enjoyed providing a place to warm up and interpreting the campÕ s rich history and architecture to them.Ó

How to get there:

Northbound: From Adirondack Northway (I-87), Exit 26 at Pottersville; West on 29 (Olmstedville Road) through Olmsteadville to 28N; Northwest on 28N to Newcomb. Southbound: From Adirondack Northway (I-87), Exit 29 at North Hudson/ Newcomb; (Blue Ridge Road) West on 28N to Newcomb.

Worship service scheduled

NORTH CREEK Ñ MountainView Community Church invites the public to a special worship service at the Tannery Pond Community Center in North Creek on Sunday, Jan. 19 at 11 a.m. Coffee and snacks will be available at 10:30 a.m. and after the service. Kids ages 3 thru 6th grade will have a blast worshiping with Vertical KIDZ. The church also has a nursery for kids 2 and under. All are invited to the service.

Gore Mtn Seniors to meet

JOHNSBURG Ñ The Gore Mountain Seniors will hold their January meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 22 at noon at the North Creek Meal Site. The menu is cheeseburger deluxe with lettuce and tomato, roast potato, baked beans and mandarin oranges. Call 251-2711 early reserve a place. At this meeting we will vote on and install officers for 2014 and discuss activity planning.

Hamilton County is also having a problem with transportation. Ò WeÕ ve had a problem with our contractor getting salt, but havenÕ t heard anything from the Department of Transportation (DOT) in regards to a shortage of any kind,Ó said Hamilton County Highway Superintendent Tracy Eldridge. Deputy Highway Superintendent of Operations in Warren County Todd Beadnell also mentioned delivery issues in their county. Ò We received a call from the town of Ticonderoga stating theyÕ re having delivery issues with salt,Ó said Beadnell. Ò The county supply is all set, however, we have enough reserve.Ó Like Westport, officials in the Clinton County town of Peru said they also have used an exorbitant amount of sand and salt. Peru Highway Superintendent Michael Farrell said his town has already used more salt and sand than they did all of last year.

APA classification

Ruth and Dave Olbert

Continued from page 1 Environmentalists, on the other hand, tried to make a case for “Wilderness” classification, restricting the land to foot traffic alone. Within the recent classification, The APA established a wild forest corridor to allow snowmobile passage from Indian Lake to Newcomb. The corridor is about one-tenth of a mile wide and six miles long. According to outdoor author, Phil Brown, Ò Depending on where the snowmobile trail goes, it could be split in two. In which case, the smaller chunk would become the Pine Lake

Primitive Area.Ó Ò WeÕ re really hoping the snowmobile access works out as it would attract more winter business,Ó said Dave Olbert. Part of their expansion ideas would include a garage with snowmobile rentals offering guided day trips on the local trails. Ò We have repeat customers that come and stay with us year after year because of our unique location, we hope this new access will help our business grow,Ó he said.

your friends and neighbors in times of need. Many of the department members act as both firefighters and EMS providers, having undergone cross-training opportunities when they come up; 10 volunteers are both squad and firefighter members. All Minerva department volunteers work extremely hard to make sure that the department does what it needs to do to protect the community, whether out front or in the background as officers, board members, committee members, lawnmowers, or show shovelers. The rescue squad had a total of 154 calls (no misses) in 2013, which was two calls less than the banner year of 2012. The Minerva squadÕ s new ambulance was used well and carefully throughout the year. All drivers go through a training process whereby they learn through practical means how to handle radio transmissions as well as how to drive a large vehicle in often harrowing weather conditions during fire and medical emergencies. The rescue squad is composed of volunteers from nearby communities as well as the Town of Minerva. The roster includes 28 people, including EMTs, drivers, aides, and junior members (ages 14 Ð 17). Of the EMTs, 14 are EMT-Basics, three are advanced EMT-Critical Care, and one is an advanced EMT-Paramedic. The squad also has one Certified First Responder (also a junior member). All members are needed to participate as much as they can; sometimes itÕ s hard to make the time, but whatever time folks can donate whether on the schedule or not, their support is appreciated. Whether emergency medical technician or driv-

er or other supporter, the volunteers are the heart and soul of the rescue squad. A number of members among the roster deserve a mention - those with 20 or more calls to which they responded include: Karen Wright (85), Mike Corey (74), Cameron Dubay (64), Greg Wright (56), Keith Dubay (31), Ricale Howe (31), Zach Boucher (30), Debbie Palmatier (26), Simon Gardner (24), Hayley Killon (24), and Patty Warrington (23). Thank you for your contributions of time and energy to your community. Although the rescue squad was out with numerous calls in 2013, there were also 34 fire calls, with none of these calls missed, either. This is impressive, given the limited numbers of volunteers that are available. The fire company recently gained a new firefighter, Brandon Dunbar, who just completed a 90-hour Firefighter One class. The Minerva Volunteer Fire Department & Rescue Squad, Inc. (MVFD&RS), is always on the lookout for new volunteers and supporters. Those with an interest in helping the department as a firefighter, driver, aide, support person or emergency health care provider, should contact a member to find out more about how to help. You can check on-line at to download an application and find out more about what the MVFD&RS is all about. The department has a great mix of folks who work on an impressive diversity of activities to keep everything running smoothly Ð take the time to check it out because Minerva is your community Ð please volunteer!

Ò WeÕ re using a heavier salt mixture due to the icy weather but donÕ t foresee a shortage unless the ice storms persist. We have a salt shed with plenty of reserve,Ó he said. He also stated that he placed an order for salt and received it the next day. Highway officials in another town in Clinton County also said theyÕ ve used much more in supplies than the last few years. Town of Plattsburgh Highway Superintendent Jim Woods said so far this year theyÕ ve used 623 loads of salt/sand mix to date. That compares to 479 loads in all of last year and 211 the year before. Ò Our crew has 90 hours overtime per man to date this year, which is up from last yearÕ s 50 hours per man. These ice storms have caused problems with ice build up on our back roads. However, we have plenty of reserve on hand and donÕ t foresee any problems unless winter drags on much longer than usual,Ó Woods said. Through the entire region one thing remains constant; the icy weather has caused an increase in usage on supplies, and if the weather continues, towns could be scraping the bottom of the barrel to keep their roads safe.

Tobacco customers should be 21 or older


hereÕ s still time to make a pair of important New YearÕ s health resolutions. Smokers should make every effort to quit. Society should make every attempt to prevent people from starting to smoke Ñ including raising the minimum age to purchase tobacco from 18 to 21. WeÕ ve known the dangers of smoking for years, but a milestone this month should serve to remind us smoking kills. It was 50 years ago this month a landmark U.S. Surgeon GeneralÕ s report that linked smoking with bad health was issued. It was the first time Americans were told directly smoking kills. The government has updated the report 32 times in the five decades since. Those reports, along with the work of doctors and other health professionals, have made an impact. In 1965, 42 percent of the population smoked. Today, 19 percent of Americans do, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The CDC claims government anti-smoking efforts have saved 8 million lives. ThatÕ s wonderful progress, but work remains to be done. An estimated 43.8 million Americans still smoke and experts claim the decline in smoking has plateaued. People arenÕ t quitting anymore. Smoking remains the No. 1 cause of preventable death in the United States. It kills more people than obesity, substance abuse, infectious disease, firearms and traffic accidents, according to the CDC. About 443,000 Americans die from smoking-related illnesses every year, according to the U.S. Department of Health. Americans know smoking kills. ItÕ s becoming more and more socially unacceptable. ItÕ s expensive. ItÕ s banned in most public places. Yet millions continue to do it. Why? A combination of psychological and biological factors are to blame, according to scientists. Ò The chemicals in cigarettes work on the structures deep within a smokerÕ s brain, literally rewiring it so the habit becomes deeply ingrained,Ó Jed Rose, the director of the Duke Center for Smoking Cessation in North Carolina, said in a recent CNN report. Ò Every move a smoker makes: the lighting of the cigarette, the inhaling, all the feelings and sensations of it, the whole package becomes highly addictive.Ó Most smokers believe its easy to quit Ñ before they actually try to stop, according to scientists. Ò Ultimately, they will lose their capacity to make a free choice to smoke,Ó Rose said. Ò Then 30 years later, thatÕ s when we typically see them in our program desperately trying to quit, because now they canÕ t go a single day without (a cigarette).Ó The World Health Organization has termed tobacco a Ò gradual killer.Ó It notes many young people start to smoke believing they can stop before suffering ill effects. While itÕ s never too late to quit, quitting is often much tougher than simply recognizing the problem. Avoiding cigarettes all together is the best way to steer clear of tobacco-related addiction and illness. That means keeping them away from children and young people, which is the reason many are calling for an increase in the legal age to 21 to purchase cigarettes. New York City had already taken that action. Some New York counties Ñ Nassau and Suffolk on Long Island Ñ have raised the legal age for purchasing cigarettes to 19. New York State should follow their lead. If not, local governments should. While tobacco advertising has been banned on television and the dangers of cigarettes have become well known, temptation remains. Several studies show tobacco marketing and advertising works and increases the likelihood that youth will start smoking. In 2011, cigarette companies spent $8.37 billion on ads and promotional expenses in the United States alone, according to the CDC. That breaks down to about $23 million a day or $27 for every American per year. Tobacco use is an issue everyone should care about Ñ smokers and non-smokers. ItÕ s expensive for everyone. Smoking cost the United States more than $193 billion a year, according to the CDC, including $97 billion in lost productivity and $96 billion in direct health care expenditures. ThatÕ s an average of $4,260 per adult smoker. ItÕ s a price we all pay. Ñ

JOHNSBURG LIBRARY NEWS The Town of Johnsburg Library is hosting a series of programs this spring

The pair of commercial buildings on the far right of this photo is Pereau’s Garage (left) and auto showroom (right) as seen from across Tannery Pond circa 1933. The current day Town Hall and library were developed out of the building on the right. The garage was torn down to make room for a parking area. The private residence at the far left still stands. Courtesy of Johnsburg Historical Society As North Creek developed into a bustling hamlet in the 19th and 20th centuries due to the successes of the tanneries, timber industry, the railroad, and tourism, several entrepreneurs saw the need for automobile garages. Louis Pereau and his sons Claude and Charles operated PereauÕ s Garage and an auto showroom on this location. The garage was an agent for Ford, Overland, Maxwell, and Studebaker cars and trucks and stood to the left of this building. Before being converted into the present day Town Hall, this building was the auto showroom and sold HallÕ s Quality Ice Cream. On the property to the right is where Claude PereauÕ s home stood before its conversion to a parking lot. A later photograph taken in the 1940s shows a simple building on that same property in which George Sanders operated his Quick Lunch stand offering home cooking and refreshments. By the 1950Õ s the auto showroom building was in poor shape. For a short time between its use as the showroom and the Town Hall, it functioned as a jail space. The building was converted into Town Hall between the late 1950s and 1960s. The back of the building became the front section of the library in 1996, with an addition completed in 1999.

commercial about Ò the touch and feel of cotton, the fabric of our livesÓ brought to mind patchwork quilts and how our lives are a patchwork created by our many diverse experiences. Years ago women made quilts from their old dresses and their childrenÕ s clothing. When they gathered with friends to stitch quilts, they must have remembered the times when they wore the clothes. In that way their experiences remained fresh over the years. A glance at a particular patch would bring to mind a special occasion. Some quilts are sewn with simple squares. Others are structured with a specific, repeated pattern, while crazy quilts are made up of oddly shaped and colorful pieces fitted together. Nowadays few of us make quilts, and those who do probably purchase contrasting calico at the fabric store. In our busy modern world we fail to be introspective, to study the fabric of our lives, to see if there are repeated patterns. Is our life quilt a simple and straight forward design, or is it one of those crazy quilts? Perhaps this New Year is the time to take stock.

Doing it outdoors, with Hope and a Prayer


ccasionally, in my zealous effort to promote getting kids outside, IÕ ve often neglected a pressing need to do the same for adults. While I canÕ t advocate Ô tossing the old folks out in the snowÕ as I have with kids, I do believe thereÕ s a real need for programming that would help to connect, or reconnect people of all generations to the treasures and pleasures of the outdoor life. Some sort of program with mountain mentors, if you will. The situation was brought to my attention when a reader commented on a recent column I had written titled, Ò Toss the Kids into the Snow.Ó He remarked,Ò This was a great article. Virtually all that you said (about kids) would work for getting adults involved in any activity, winter or otherwise. So often when people try to teach family or friends (about the outdoors) they forget how long it took them to get Ò goodÓ . Ò They wish for the newbie to be up to their level in a couple of hours, or half a day, max. Too many have been turned away from activities because of that expectation.Ó Although I truly enjoy getting children outdoors, it doubles the pleasure whenever a program involves getting out with adults, especially seniors. And it is truly unfortunate that we tend to set our expectations so high when it comes to taking greenhorn adults into the outdoors. We all started as rookies in the wilderness, there wasnÕ t any spring training. The woods can be just as threatening to an inexperienced eighty year old as they are for an enthusiastic eight or nine year old. For nature neophytes, the wilderness can be just as intimidating as Time Square would be for an experienced woodsman. ItÕ s always difficult to be comfortable when you’ re out of both your element, and your zone. IÕ ve discovered the easiest and most enjoyable method for introducing newcomers to the woods is to treat them all the same, big, little or somewhere in between. The big woods are only intimidating for those who donÕ t know how to enjoy them, and that is a problem thatÕ s easily overcome. All it really takes is some time, patience, a bit of wildwood wisdom mixed with the company of at least one

competent outdoors traveler who is willing to share his or her experience with others. IÕ ve discovered that getting out with seniors is really no different than playing with a bunch kids. The woods and waters, fresh air and sunshine bring out the same lively enjoyment and enthusiasm. We often forget todayÕ s seniors grew up during an era when the majority of recreational activities were conducted outdoors. Such outings helped to keep them young, and we should never forget the true purpose of recreation is to re-create. As a child, I learned about the outdoors while playing with friends; but I learned much more from their parents and grandparents. I was reminded of this fact when I recently discovered a dusty old box on a shelf in the basement of my parentÕ s house in Elizabethtown. Inside the wooden box was an old birch bark scroll with handwriting scrawled across it. It had been written by Geoff Carleton, a wellknown ornithologist who often allowed me to tag along on his regular birding trips into the High Peaks. As I unrolled the scroll, the delicate bark cracked and split, but the writing was still legible. It read, Prayer Of The Woods I am the heat of your hearth on a cold winter night, the friendly shade screening you from the summer sun, and my fruits are refreshing draughts quenching your thirst as you journey on. I am the beam that holds your house, the board of your table, the bed on which you lie, and the timber that builds your boat. I am the handle of your hoe, the door of your homestead, the wood of your cradle, and the shell of your coffin. I am the bread of kindness and the flower of beauty. All who pass by this way, listen to my prayer: Harm me not. IÕ ve read various versions of this poem over the years, but none of them ever carried the impact it had that day. The scroll had secreted away a long time ago and hidden with it, were some of the most precious memories of my youth. Joe Hackett is a guide and sportsman residing in Ray Brook.
