Saranac Lake gears up for Carnival By Pete DeMola email@example.com
SARANAC LAKE Ñ For residents of this former logging town, some traditions never die Ñ theyÕ re just frozen in Flower Lake and thawed out each year for the east coastÕ s longest-running winter carnival. For 10 days, this small village seven miles from Lake Placid will host a constellation of over 100 events spread across the frigid landscape, including three sets of fireworks, parades, musical performances and demonstrations from a wide variety of local organizations, from woodsmen to women tossing custom-designed frying pans.
While it may be easy for newcomers to lump the carnival in with the flotilla of oneoff wintertime events that dot the North Country, the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival
has a long and storied history speckled with a cast of colorful characters and quirky traditions. Ò People tended to make their own fun, like stage sets for festivities,Ó said Harrietstown Historian Mary Hotaling on the roots of late-nineteenth century community events. Ò It was the way that people tended to entertain themselves.Ó The first record of a wintertime gathering in Saranac Lake was a blurb in the Feb. 25, 1897 edition of the Essex County Republican that mentioned a, Ò fancy dress gathering,Ó held by a group called the Pontiac Club. About 100 people attended, dressed in masquerade-type attire, to watch a hockey match. Little else is known and it wasnÕ t until the following year that the events morphed into a singular carnival that included a boys-only Ò prize fancy skating contest,Ó an exhibition by visiting professional figure skaters from Utica, a “hocking
match,Ó and the Ò grand illuminating and storming of the ice fortress.Ó Festivalgoers would pretend to storm the fortress like a castle, said Andy Flynn, former Denton Publications Asssistant Managing Editor who currently works for the Lake Placid News, whoÕ s become something of an expert on the history of the carnival. Ò Different groups would storm in from different angles,Ó said Flynn, author of Ò Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Memories,Ó describing an activity that was in fashion at the time. Flynn said the carnivalÕ s modern-day fireworks that draw upwards of 10,000 spectators still contain echoes of wartime displays. The crowd watches the opening fireworks from behind, he said. And during the closing, the public is assembled in the middle of the action. CONTINUED ON PAGE 10

Bill Owens not seeking re-election in 21st Congressional District Jay Supervisor, BOS Chair Randy Douglas ‘would not rule out,’ run at seat
Who’s in, who’s out, who might for New York 21st By Keith Lobdell
firstname.lastname@example.org ELIZABETHTOWN Ñ The announcement last week that Congressman Bill Owens would not be seeking re-election in November has both Republicans and Democrats moving around the deck chairs to seek out their top candidates for what may be a wide-open contest. The status of the race has been changing daily as candidates either opt in or out. With Democrats still looking to regroup after the Owens, who lives in Plattsburgh, announcement, some Republicans have put their names into the race, while others have backed out. Currently, the biggest name in the race is Republican Elise Stefanik, a Willsboro resident who has received backing from former NY-21 candidate Doug Hoffman of Lake Placid as well as Former state Sen. Raymond Meier and 2012 Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan, whom she worked for on the campaign trail. Ò I worked for President George W. Bush in the Domestic Policy Council and the office of the Chief of Staff,Ó Stefanik said in a September interview with the Valley News. 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 Also announced as candidates for the GOP are Joseph M. Gilbert of DeKalb Junction and Michael F. Ring of Adams Center. Taking her name out of contention was State Sen. Betty Little of Queensbury, who said in a Jan. 21 press release that she, Ò will run for reelection to the New York State Senate as I had planned.Ó On the fence is former Congressional candidate Matt Doheny of Watertown, who has said he is considering another run for the position.

At current, no Democrats have thrown their hat into the ring to replace their political peer in Owens. Addie Russell, a state assemblywoman from the 116th District, announced Jan. 17 that she would not seek the position. Essex County Board of Supervisors Chairman Randy Douglas of Jay has stated that he would not rule out running for the position. Many thought he would be the Democratic

candidate when Teresa Sayward retired from the state assembly before the 2012 election, but he declined. Former Essex County Democratic Committee Chair Stuart Brody, who lives in the town of Essex, has also expressed interest, along with Jon Cardinal, Lee Kindlon of Albany, former Congressman Scott Murphy of Glens Falls, and John Sullivan of Saratoga Springs.
WASHINGTON D.C. Ñ With little fanfare, Representative Bill Owens’ (D-NY 21) office issued a press release Tuesday announcing that he will not be seeking re-election for the Assembly seat he currently holds. In the brief release, Owens thanked family and friends, and expresses his desire to Ò undertake new endeavors,Ó and to spend more time with his family. Ò After careful thought and consideration, I have decided not to seek re-election for the 21st Congressional District in November,Ó the release quotes Owens as saying. Ò It has truly been a privilege to serve, and I plan on continuing to work for a brighter future for the region.Ó Owens said he will serve out the remainder of his term focusing on the same issues, including the passage of a Farm Bill, that he has been working on since being elected in November of 2009. There is no word if Owens is planning on endorsing any candidate to run for the 21st Congressional District seat in November. Three Republicans, Joseph Gilbert of St. Lawrence County, Michael Ring of Jefferson County, and Elise Stefanik of Essex County have already announced their intent to run for OwensÕ seat. No Democrats have announced the intention to run yet, but Randy Douglas (D), Jay Supervisor and Essex County Board of Supervisors Chairman, said he would have to discuss the matter with his family and staff, but would not rule out the possibility of running. Ò Politics aside, Bill has been an excellent Congressman,Ó said state Assemblywoman Janet Duprey. Ò On a personal level IÕ m going to miss him. I wish him the very best going forward.Ó Ò I want to thank Congressman Owens for his service representing this district. I think regardless of which side of the isle youÕ re on, he should be commended for being an advocate on behalf of New York 21,Ó Stefanik said.

Proposal spells three strikes against region
hile we applaud Gov. Andrew CuomoÕ s ongoing efforts to revitalize and open up the North Country through a series of forward-looking proposals and policies, weÕ re skeptical about the trial balloon he floated at the state of the state Address on Tuesday, Jan. 8 that will, if enacted by state lawmakers, suspend driverÕ s licenses for life for motorists found guilty of driving while intoxicated three times in their lifetime. DonÕ t get us wrong: WeÕ re not advocating reckless behavior and our hearts are with those who have lost loved ones as a result of impaired motorists, but we feel such an upgrade to the already-severe state DWI laws would be needlessly punitive, urban-centered and would hog tie the courts and strip them of the autonomy required to adjudicate cases based on extenuating and local circumstances. Punitive. WeÕ d like to think that a clear line of demarcation between youthful indiscretion and lifetime stupidity is drawn after a pair of alcohol-related brushes with the law. WeÕ ve all done ridiculous things in our youth and none of us are the same people that we were a decade ago, much less 25 years ago. Under a Three Strikes law, otherwise law-abiding citizens who made two mistakes during their adolescence Ñ a time when the frontal lobe, the part of the brain that controls decision-making isnÕ t yet fully matured Ñ can have their lives irrevocably remain in pieces a half-century later. Revoking someoneÕ s license later in life after just one more lapse of judgement, say driving a short distance down an unpopulated stretch of rural road while just a sliver over the .08 BAC limit, would be counterproductive and serve no real purpose other than to strip people of their livelihoods Ñ especially if theyÕ re self-employed rural residents who depend on their vehicles to provide for their families. Taking away a personÕ s right to self-determination would only add to the stateÕ s bloated welfare ranks and cripple a population that needs a life preserver Ñ not an anchor. Urban. The governorÕ s proposal sees its roots based in bills put forth to their respective chambers in 2012 by Martin Golden, the state senator and former cop from Brooklyn who sponsored the SAFE Act, and state assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis, a Republican who represents parts of Brooklyn and Staten Island. Both lawmakers represent heavily urban districts that provide a robust blend of highly developed public and private transportation networks, including subway and bus lines, livery and private car services, pedicabs and even rickshaws, that fan out through densely-packed urban neighborhoods that for many residents, offer most, if not all, of their day-to-day needs and are easily navigated by foot or bike should one choose to do so. The North Country, on the other hand, is rural, remote and provides no such networks despite covering an area larger than the state of Rhode Island, making vehicular transport a must, not only for work and rec-
reation, but also for social engagement. A Three Strikes amendment would not only disproportionately affect the wide swath of the state who depend on their vehicle for their daily needs, but would also preemptively punish them for their choice of residence and would drastically limit their recreational choices. It also would kneecap small businesses that depend on alcohol sales to stay afloat and impact healthy social interaction as residents choose to stay put over the risk of venturing out to a local establishment to fend off the long, gloomy winters that have more in common with the classic 1980 Stanley Kubrick film The Shining than the romantic glitz and glamor of the New York metropolitan area where friends, family and fun are just a subway stop away. Hogtied. Stripping local authorities from discretion in handing down sentences is further evidence of an overreaching state apparatus, one that fails to take into account extenuating circumstances, namely those of a local nature. How would the law affect, say, emergency personnel and first responders called away from their homes to assist an elderly resident? How about a sportsman, one who had no intention of going anywhere after an outdoors tipple, speeding a wounded buddy to a medical facility after a potentially fatal interaction with our gorgeous-yet-deadly natural landscape? Or any other circumstance derived from this breathtaking, yet underserved, section of the state? And like with other mandatory minimum sentences Ñ including the federally-imposed requirements imposed upon courts in the mid-1980s to combat the countryÕ s growing crack epidemic that are now starting to be rolled back based on a quarter-century of accrued data Ñ a Three Strikes proposal would put the wrong sort of people out to pasture for too long and would bog down a justice system thatÕ s already mired in superfluous cases. Instead of reducing local judgesÕ autonomy, we should be increasing their discretion and letting them make decisions that represent the best interests of the communities in which they serve Ñ not edicts imposed by faraway strongholds of power that have only the most basic cultural and geographical understanding of the communities which they aim to protect. Again, while weÕ re appreciative of the stateÕ s renewed interest in the North Country and look forward to strengthening the bond with our friends to the south, this proposal spells three strikes against the region and we canÕ t help but feel as if other, more progressive and locally-based efforts can be undertaken to combat the scourge of drunk and impaired driving thus ensuring safe roads, healthy social networks and long-term economic sustainability for the region. ThatÕ s something we can get behind, no seat belt required. Ñ

Adirondack Council mixed on State of State
ELIZABETHTOWN Ñ The Adirondack Council, an environmental advocacy organization with offices in Elizabethtown, today expressed concern with Gov. Andrew CuomoÕ s State of the State address, saying it liked the parts about improving rural infrastructure and tourism but didnÕ t hear much about investments in the quality of the stateÕ s environment. Ò The Adirondack Council is pleased that Governor Cuomo has devoted so much time and energy to Adirondack issues over the past year,Ó said William C. Janeway, Executive Director. Ò We hope that his enthusiasm translates into additional funding in his upcoming State Budget. The parkÕ s environment needs better care. Its 130 small communities need growth that is compatible with environmental protection. We look forward to a state budget that will stand as proof of his commitment to the environment, because we didnÕ t hear much about those issues today.Ó Janeway pointed out that the Cuomo administration had added funding to the Environmental Protection Fund. Ò We are pleased that the Governor mentioned the Environmental Protection Fund and took credit for adding money to it last session, for the first time in many years,Ó he said. Ò But more than 100 organizations will be calling on the Governor to increase the EPF to $200 million this year. Janeway also urged caution with regulatory reforms. Ò As for the Governor Õ s plans for regulatory reform, we caution him to seek reforms that will not damage the Adirondack ParkÕ s clean waters, clean air and open spaces,Ó he said. Ò Those are not just environmental con-

cerns, but economic ones. We need to keep the park forever wild for everyone.Ó In reference to the Governor Õ s plan to invite major political leaders to the Finger Lakes for the 2014 Bassmaster Classic, Janeway said he wanted to see a similar event inside the Blue Line. Ò With or without the Governor, we hope there will be a 2014 Adirondack Challenge this summer that brings additional attention to the parkÕ s new public lands and waters -as well as bringing new business to the surrounding, gateway communities.Ó Finally, Janeway said the organization would be watching carefully the Governor Õ s plan for highway improvements just north of the Adirondack Park. An elevated interstate highway between Watertown and Plattsburgh could isolate the Adirondack Park from wildlife migration pathways to Canada and the Great Lakes. In the Legislative Session ahead, Janeway said the Adirondack Council will be seeking: •An Environmental Protection Fund (EPF) of $200 million or more (a $47-million increase over 2013); •Improvements to the Adirondack Park Agency Act and updates of the agencyÕ s 40-year-old rules for private land development; •Transformational improvements to invasive species controls; •Measures to address greenhouses gas emissions, as well as the impact of climate change on the parkÕ s ecology and rural communities; and, •Laws or regulations that keep all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) off of the Adirondack Forest Preserve.
Saranac Lake High graduate Tim Burke, right, will be competing in his third Winter Olympic Games in Sochi. At the 2006 Games in Torino, Italy, Burke finished 35th in the sprint and ninth as a member of the relay team that included Lake PlacidÕ s Lowell Bailey. He returned to the Olympics four years later in Vancouver, Canada, to finish 18th in the mass start and helped the U.S. relay team, again along with Bailey, to a 13th place finish. He has finished second three times in World Cup Competition, earning a silver medal at the 2013 World Championships in the individual race. He has also finished third twice. Other personal bests at the World Championships include a ninth place finish in the sprint (2008), 10th place in the pursuit (2008), 24th in the mass start (2007) and a sixth place finish in relay (2011). Burke held the top world ranking during part of the 2009-10 World Cup season.

At the Torino, Italy Games in 2006, Bailey finished 27th in the individual event and ninth in the relay event along with teammate Tim Burke of Saranac Lake. Bailey and Burke joined again at the 2010 Vancouver, Canada Games for a 13th place finish in the relay along with a 36th place finish in both the sprint and pursuit events. His best World Cup results have come over the past two seasons, with a pair of fifth place finishes in the 2011-12 season in the sprint and a seventh place finish in the sprint in 2012-13. Bailey twice finished as the runner-up in the NCAA championships as a Catamount. When he is not skiing, Bailey is on the stage as a mandolin player for Big Slyde.
State to fund improvements for sidewalks in Saranac Lake, Plattsburgh By Keith Lobdell
firstname.lastname@example.org ALBANY Ñ Projects targeted to improve infrastructure will receive state funding in Clinton and Franklin counties. Gov. Andrew Cuomo last week announced $67 million in funding for bicycle, pedestrian and multi-use enhancement projects throughout the state of New York. Three North Country projects received funding, including $761,600 to the Village of Saranac Lake and $1,626,000 to the City of Plattsburgh. Ò We are modernizing New York StateÕ s transportation system while making it safer,Ó Cuomo said. Ò We will continue to upgrade New
YorkÕ s infrastructure to expand tourism and economic development while improving our communities.Ó Funding for the projects is coming from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and are administered by NYSDOT. The funds cover 80 percent of the cost of each project, with the remaining 20 percent coming from the project sponsor. The projects are required to address a number of concerns, including providing facilities for bicycles and pedestrians; scenic or historic highway programs; landscaping and other beautification initiatives; preservation of abandoned railway corridors, including their conversion and use as pedestrian and bicycle trails; and environmental mitigation to address water
pollution due to highway runoff or reducing vehicle-caused wildlife mortality. In Saranac Lake, the funding will go toward improvements to sidewalk conditions along Lake Flower Avenue (NYS Route 86)through a series of projects aimed a improving the condition of the infrastructure. The work, which is expected to start in the new construction season, is part of an overall plan to upgrade conditions along the state highway. Plattsburgh will use its funding to implement phase two of the Saranac River Trail Project. Currently, the Saranac River Trail runs from the Saranac Street Bridge to George Angell Drive near Plattsburgh High School. With the funding, the city plans to run the trail across the Saranac Street Bridge, around the NYSEG
site, across a new pedestrian signature bridge at Durkee Street, then along the street to City Hall and MacDonough Park. They will also connect the Stafford Middle School to the trail with an extension along the Saranac River behind the police station and across Pine Street. Overall, plans are for the trail to provide a connection from Lake Champlain in the east to the town of Saranac, spanning a distance of over 20 miles. Ò The Saranac River Trail does more than provide alternative options for transportation,Ó Mayor Jim Calnon said. Ò It improves our quality of life here in Plattsburgh and encourages tourism and economic development opportunities in the downtown business district and across the region.Ó

Ò Lake Placid and the region has such a unique place in Olympic History and we are looking forward in helping to advance the legacy of winter sports here.Ó Hannaford will be the exclusive retailer of the Empire State Winter Games pin, which will be on sale for $4.99 at local stores within the chain.

Continued from page 1 Ò We have run three times over the past four years in Tupper Lake and they have a great setup there. We are hoping for a good car turnout and the town really goes all out for us while we are there.Ó Burnham said there needs to be 12 inches of ice on the lake in order to conduct the races which should not be a problem given the current ice conditions and anticipated cold snap in the days leading up to the event. Still, conditions are monitored throughout the day. Ò We will plow the track out to begin but we will also change the track depending on how well the ice is holding,Ó Burnham said. Early heat races are timed, with most races having a 20 minute clock. Ò We use that time to determine how many laps to make the heat races,Ó Burnham said. Ò Then we will run laps for the rest of the races with the longest race at the end of the day as the feature event.Ó AMEC opened their season last weekend on Caroga Lake with six races held. Burnham said that there can be as many as 10 races in a weekend depending upon turnout. After Tupper Lake, the racing season continued with stops at Warners Lake in Berne and at
the Lake George Winter Carnival. Burnham said spectators and competitors should always call ahead or check in before going to an event. Due to weather and ice thickness, locations of events can change at the last minute. According to AMEC, race day will consist of registration for all competitors and workers, a short practice session to allow all racers to become familiar with the track layout, and a series of races consisting of varying classes of cars racing against one another. The day concludes with a Finale Race. The first race will consist of Street Legal Unstudded class racers in a 20 minute sprint race, street driven entries with minimal preparation to compete. The next 20 minute heat race consists of four cylinder, front wheel drive cars with up to two liter engines. The other set of heat races will consist of the All Wheel Drive [AWD], C Class [GTO], B Class [Modified] and A Class [Super Modified] cars. The Class A Super Modifieds are the fastest cars competing and are usually custom built tube chassis cars with very extensive modifications to both the suspensions and the engine. Open Class follows, designed for the second driver of any of the normal class racers, with two more Street Legal class races and then the Finale Race.

Continued from page 1 Ò ItÕ s an immersive experience and two of the carnivalÕ s biggest highlights,Ó he said.
Despite itÕ s storied history, the carnival hasnÕ t beckoned residents out into the frost every year. There were gaps from the 1920s until the mid-1950s when the town fell silent due to both World War II and what historical documents provided by Historic Saranac Lake, a local non-profit, refer to as “a lack of proper leadership.Ó However, it was resurrected in the winter of 1947-48 and has been held annually ever since. The Ice Palace, which wasnÕ t constructed for a 34-year period between 1920 and 1954, has also been a mainstay since the time when the carnivalÕ s parade consisted of sleek convertibles with tail light fins humming down a snowpacked Ampersand Avenue. While the first ice palace constructed in North America was in Montreal in 1883, Saranac Lake may hold the honor of hosting the first palace that was illuminated with electricity. No one seems to know if it was the oldest usage of Ò colored electric lightsÓ and surprisingly enough, historical records donÕ t indicate casualties from the then-uncommon usage of threading blocks of ice with electrical currents. The fireworks display is still referred to “storming” and the fireworks display goes up and over the palace, which is now constructed by an all-volunteer committee as opposed to the architects, many of whom came to the village for tuberculosis cures, overseeing the earlier construction efforts: Boldface names like William L. Coultier, a New Yorker who designed many of the Adirondack Great Camps and local attractions (including Park StreetÕ s Ò The PorcupineÓ and Camp Eagle Island) and his contemporary William G. Distin, have now given way to names like Dean Baker, Jeff Branch and Robin Johnson, the area residents who head the building committee
www.valleynewsadk.com that is informally known as the Ice Palace Workers 101, or IPW 101. Ò Modern equipment is used for the heavy lifting,Ó said event spokeswoman Colleen OÕ Neill, Ò but traditional manual methods are also practiced, including the usage of antique hand saws and ice tongs.Ó Another manual process which is critical to the construction, said OÕ Neill, is making slush, a mixture of water and snow. The slush forms the mortar which holds the Ice Palace together. IPW 101 workers then fill buckets with water, pound in snow, carry it to the palace walls and apply the slush. Construction of this yearÕ s palace started on the morning Friday, Jan. 17 and will continue until the events officially begin on Friday, Jan. 31. Other contemporary additions to the carnival include buttons Ñ local cartoonist Garry Trudeau has been designing them regularly since 1981, most of them based on his popular Doonesbury comic strip Ñ and themes, with this yearÕ s tackling a Celtic aesthetic, joining the fray in 1964.
Kings and queens
On a broader level, the event that Parade magazine ranked among North AmericaÕ s Ò coolest winter festivalsÓ is a peoplepowered effort organized by the all-volunteer Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Committee, a group of local citizens. It wasnÕ t always this way. The committee was formed only within living memory as a way to foster a sense of civic pride, said OÕ Neill. Ò They can be as diverse as organizing a major community event or as seemingly minor as shoveling a neighborÕ s sidewalk,Ó she said. Ò The assembly is seeking people who help others independently, not necessarily people who are in professions that help or care for others.Ó This extends to the selection of a royal court that was once restricted to television personalities, celebrities with ties to the area and winners of contests like the Ms. Rheingold Canadian Beer Queen, said Michelle Tucker, curator for the Curator for Saranac Lake Library Adirondack Research Room. In 1947, Queen Jean Keating was crowned by famed local her-
January 25, 2014 mit Noah John Rondeau, who become something of a novelty, appearing again in 1950 and even coronated as Archbishop in 1951. Last yearÕ s king was Lee Foster and the queen was Cherie Racette. Reflecting the modern era’s increased sense of transparency, the public is now asked to nominate their peers. Most have a longstanding history of volunteering in the community, said OÕ Neill. Past kings and queens chime at a meeting at a Ò secret location” (with voting done by “secret ballot”) and the winners are announced towards the kickoff date. After their coronation Ñ this yearÕ s will be held on Friday, Jan. 31 with a reception feast on Tuesday, Feb. 4 Ñ the court will attend key events dressed in royal garb and receive a warm reception from the peasantry. Ò When you see them walking around, people cheer,Ó said OÕ Neill.
‘Only gets better’
As it enters its third century of attracting throngs to the area, the carnival continues to be a boon for the local economy. The Saranac Lake Chamber of Commerce said that the village sees a fairly large increase from its members as compared to the rest of the winter. Ò Lodging properties are hustling and bustling and weÕ re seeing a spike for both weekends,Ó said Chamber chief Katy Van Anden. The event, she said, has been given a boost from being rated second in the country by National Geographic, right behind Anchorage, Ak. Ò WeÕ ll see economic stimulus until the end of February when the ice palace comes down,Ó said Van Andren, noting that the chamber receives calls throughout the end of winter from people asking if they can still catch a glimpse of the renewed history that is recycled back into Flower lake year after year. But before the lake reclaims the castle, weÕ ve got 10 days of events that are still being fleshed out. “We have lots on the schedule and more coming daily,Ó said OÕ Neill. Ò And it will only get better.Ó

Winter Carnival unveils new website
SARANAC LAKE Ñ The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Committee recently launched the new website for the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival. The website address is saranaclakewintercarnival.com. The website address remains the same, but the website underwent a complete redesign by Adworkshop in Lake Placid. The new website includes a photo gallery, sporting event listing and other detailed information about Winter Carnival. Ò We wanted a high-quality website, and we got one thanks to the talented team at Adworkshop,Ó said Andy Flynn, who worked with Caroleigh Meserole on the Winter Carnival CommitteeÕ s website team to build content for the site. Ò The website is our window to the world, and itÕ s important to present Saranac Lake in a professional manner while promoting this internationally recognized event.Ó The improved layout and user-friendly features are easily viewed on multiple devices and screen sizes. The website provides a modern visual experience and utilizes color schemes from the new Winter Carnival logo with tones of blue and white. Ò The team worked tirelessly to bring the website to fruition, and to ensure that it represents the true spirit and traditions of the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival,Ó said Eric Foster, chairman for the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Committee. Ò Without their hard work, creativity and dedication, it would not be possible. The committee is also appreciative of those who contributed toward funding the website; our Winter Carnival sponsors and other donors.Ó Generous donations of money and time for the website were also given by Natalie Leduc, Adworkshop, Hungry Bear Publishing and others. Winter Carnival attendees are encouraged to check the website for the latest schedule updates for events, which features a convenient schedule summary encompassing all of the festivities during this 10-day celebration. Construction of the Winter Carnival Ice Palace began on Jan. 17. Construction involves harvesting ice from Lake Flower, transporting it to the shore and assembling it according to a blueprint. The palace was designed with a Celtic theme to coincide with the 2014 Saranac Lake Winter Carnival theme Ò Celtic Carnival.Ó Construction on the palace will continue until the start of the carnival on Jan. 31. The Ice Palace is built by volunteers, organized by a group informally known as the Ice Palace Workers 101 (IPW 101). The public is welcome to volunteer and roles are assigned based on comfort level, skill and ability. The construction of the Ice Palace is a community effort by those dedicated to keeping this time-honored tradition alive. Volunteers are subject to very cold temperatures and inclement weather conditions, all while handling ice and snow. Despite these harsh conditions, camaraderie is evident and a sense of pride is felt among the volunteers who contribute to continuing the legacy of the Ice Palace. Modern equipment is used for the heavy lifting, but traditional manual methods are practiced as well, including antique hand saws and ice tongs. Another manual process which is critical to the construction is making slush, a mixture of water and snow. The slush forms the mortar which holds the Ice Palace together.

TUPPER LAKE — At first glance, the waters of the expansive lake that lends its name to this village in southwest Franklin County are as tranquil as ever. Beneath the icy surface, however, a dispute over how tourism funds should be allocated is causing waves. Franklin County Legislator and Tupper Lake Mayor Paul Maroun (R) wants the county to help pay to print recreational tourist maps for the Tupper Lake Chamber of Commerce and requested $8,000 to do so. But he was stymied at the year’s final county board meeting, an emergency session held on Dec. 31, when Chairman Billy Jones (D-Chateaugay) nixed the proposal, arguing that Maroun needs to go through the newly formed Franklin County Tourism Advisory Committee, or TAC, to receive his funds. TAC was created last year to take over tourismrelated policy from the Franklin County Industrial Development Agency (FCIDA), a public agency that provides financial assistance to local businesses, in deciding how the countyÕ s annual tourism funds would be spent. Maroun argued Franklin CountyÕ s 2013 Budget allowed $75,000 for tourism-related activities. He said $25,000 went to Essex County’s Regional Office of Sustainable Tourism (ROOST) to promote Saranac Lake and $25,000 went to the Cornell Cooperative Extension to develop agritourism. Some of the remaining $25,000, argued Maroun, should therefore go to Tupper Lake to print tourism guides.
Maroun initially asked for $16,000 in mid-2013 of the remaining $25,000 to promote the Tupper Lake region, but he withdrew the request as long as his area was given future consideration for funding. He later arrived at a figure of $8,000 based on the guides that Lake Placid and Saranac Lake assembled to promote their activities and attractions, which is why he was asking for the same. Ò IÕ m not sure what the $16,000 request was for,Ó said Jones. Ò There was not an additional $25,000 available. I have no idea where that figure came from.Ó Jones said the seven-member board couldnÕ t approve MarounÕ s request because all tourism-related costs should first go through TAC for approval. TAC’s members are appointed by the county legislators. Ò IÕ m not against the tour guide or anything having to do with Tupper Lake,Ó he said. Ò We set up TAC and Tupper Lake has some good representation on it. But if itÕ s tourism-related, then it goes through that committee like other members.Ó Jones said that, Ò he doesnÕ t feel that way,Ó when it comes to the Maroun argument that since TAC was created after legislators had awarded $50,000 to the other agencies, his $8,000 request is up to the legislators Ñ not TAC. Ò We had an agreement,Ó said Maroun. Ò I donÕ t know what funds heÕ s referring to,Ó said Jones. Ò There was never another line-item for $25,000 funds. But there was some carry-over from the FCIDA accounts, but that will go directly in TAC. IÕ ve talked to TAC members about it, and if Tupper Lake wants some resources, then they should go through them.Ó Maroun agrees that the disputed funds originally came from carry-over funds that werenÕ t spent over the years that was turned over the county, the original appropriating authority back in 2012.
Ò At the time, there was some $40,000,Ó he said, referring to the carry-over funds. Ò After we knew that things would be divided differently with TAC, the $40,000 was appropriated and I thought it was only fair that Tupper Lake could get some of that money. But this was discussed before TAC was even created [in March 2013] and the board members reached a tentative agreement Ñ thatÕ s the crux of my argument and my people got shortchanged.Ó According to Fawn Tetro, a tourism administrator employed part-time by the county, MarounÕ s request hasn’t officially reached TAC. Ò TheyÕ re certainly welcome to call and put it on the agenda,Ó she said. When asked about this specific issue, TAC carefully hedged on a timeframe for making a decision. Ò As a member of TAC, weÕ ve been informed that that account is there and that we have been told that we need to decide as a group how to allocate it,Ó said Franklin County Events Coordinator and TAC board member Michele Clement. According to Clement, thereÕ s some argument as if the carry-over funds in question rolled over to TAC or if itÕ s the hands of the legislature. Ò As a member of TAC, weÕ re currently devising a plan to accolate that funding.Ó Ò The buck stops with the county legislature,Ó countered Maroun. Ò WeÕ re the funding authority. If weÕ re afraid to approach TAC with how we think it should be done, weÕ re not doing our job and itÕ s a disservice to the taxpayers.Ó The issue wasnÕ t addressed at the most recent county board meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 14. Tupper Lake is currently selling ad space to local merchants to fund the guides. Ò WeÕ re going to print them whether or not TAC comes through with the money,Ó said Maroun.
