Saratoga-North Creek Railway’s new initiatives freight and local wine - praised by county supervisors By Thom Randall NORTH CREEK Ñ Poised to delve into freight service, the Saratoga-North Creek Railway is simultaneously adding a distinctive new twist to its passenger excursions, an executive of the railway announced this week. The railway will soon be offering its own brand of private-label wine to its passengers, railroad general superintendent Justin Gonyo told Warren County supervisors Jan. 27. Passengers on Saratoga-North Creek trains will soon be able to purchase several varieties of regional wine in collectible custom bottles bearing the railwayÕ s logo and deep blue color scheme, he said. To be produced by Fossil Stone Vineyards of Greenfield, the wine represents not only a new promotional initiative, but an effort to Ò buy localÓ wherever possible, Gonyo said. He added that progress is being made in lining up arrangements for hauling freight over the railroad from Tahawus through North Creek and Saratoga to downstate destinations including Long Island. Negotiations have been productive with subcontractor in the movement of freight, he said. Ò WeÕ ll soon be ready to present proposals to our prospective customers,Ó Gonyo said. Ò 2014 is shaping up to be quite the year for us.Ó In late November, Gonyo announced that the railway was negotiating freight contracts with nine different companies with the idea of moving stone and gravel products downstate. He estimated the railway would be moving 500,000 tons of aggregate the first year — or 5,000 carloads — and 1.5 million tons in the following two years. He noted that the Tahawus stone products might be used to rebuild the runways of JFK International Airport. Gonyo said Monday that in preparation of the new freight traffic, the railway was replacing 16,000 railroad ties from North Creek to Stony Creek and 8,000 ties between North Creek and Tahawus. He also said that his firm’s executives were pleased with the passenger traffic so far this winter. He said that 26,520 passengers participated in the railwayÕ s Polar Express themed excursions, a slight decrease from last year. Ò It was a very good crowd,Ó he said. Also, Gonyo said that 283 passengers had ridden the railwayÕ s Snow Train service so far this year, an increase of nine passengers from January 2013. Representing the railway, Sue Wilder of Hadley said that the firm was boosting its cooperative marketing efforts with various hotels, motels, attractions and restaurants to boost commerce in

North Creek. She also noted that a special train excursion honoring area Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts will occur Saturday Feb. 8, with themed onboard activities and an afternoon of free tubing at the North Creek Ski Bowl. The participants are to board at the Hadley-Luzerne train station. For details, call (877) 726-7245 or see: Gonyo noted that for all the railwayÕ s trips, passengers can get on a scheduled train at any of their train stations along the route, by informing a railway representative when reservations are made. Warren County Parks & Recreation Director Paul Butler reported that extensive upgrades to the Thurman Rail stationÕ s

new interior were being completed. Ò The work will absolutely be done by spring,Ó he said. This summer, the railway is undertaking a variety of initiatives to boost ridership. Planned are day trips between Thurman and North Creek aimed primarily at Lake George visitors as well as slashed prices for short trips between local stations. Also slated are general discounts for seniors, youth, students and families. Bolton Town Supervisor Ron Conover, who chairs the countyÕ s Public Works Committee, hailed GonyoÕ s news. Ò ItÕ s a pleasure to see these initiatives,Ó Conover said. Ò ItÕ s impressive to see how far this has come Ñ Ô Great job!Ó

Village to hold meeting to discuss public parking

LAKE GEORGE Ñ The Village of Lake George Board of Trustees will hold a public informational meeting Jan. 30 to discuss their search for additional public parking in the village and the sale of an abandoned street to a private developer. Over the past year Village officials have been investigating locations that were available for their use with private landowners. Two years ago the Village opened a new lot on Ottawa Street owned by David Kenny. The lot was extremely successful with revenues exceeding $90,000. Those spaces will be lost as construction of the new Marriott hotel begins in 2014.

The Village Board authorized three independent appraisals of Parrott Street, the Woodbine Hotel property as well as a smaller vacant lot on McGillis Avenue. Parrott Street runs from Ottawa Street to the rear of the new hotel and has been declared surplus by the Village Board. The Woodbine Hotel property is owned by the Quirk family and located on Dieskau Street. It presently has several older buildings on it as well as a large storm main that needs replacement. The property has been valued at $550,000 and would hold 125-150 vehicles for public parking.

The vacant lot on McGillis has been valued at $80,000 and also has a large stormwater drain that must be moved by the Village if it remains in private use. The Village plans for this lot is to construct a storage garage and small office for their seasonal Peace Officers. The lot would be landscaped and the building built to blend in with the neighborhood. The public meeting will be held on Thursday, Jan. 30 at the Village Hall at 6 p.m. Anyone who cannot attend the meeting and has questions may call Mayor Blais at the Village Hall.

Common Core the wrong choice


he adoption of the Common Core learning standards in New York State has created a lucrative opportunity for educational publishers like Pearson Education, while leaving our children behind. As states and schools rush to buy products aligned to the new standards, our children suffer because of a callous disregard for their educational needs. Core-aligned tests are diminishing our childrenÕ s creativity and enthusiasm to learn while handcuffing our teachers to specific, developmentally inappropriate standards and curricular materials. Our kids donÕ t all develop according to a specific map; they learn by interaction through experiences that are unique to each child. They canÕ t be force-fed. Our teachers are seeing a notable shift in math instruction. For example, asking an 8-year-old a math related multiple-choice question like Ò Which is a related subtraction sentence?Ó hardly seems like something a third grade student would understand. English instructors have noticed a more heavy emphasis on non-fiction texts with new standards. A Ò LexileÓ score is one of the methods used to gauge reading difficulty within the common core standards. These scores are based on how difficult texts are to read; actual content and in-depth meaning play second fiddle. The complexity of meaning in both classic literature and high-interest young adult novels has been disregarded. Educators and parents in New York State are taking a stand against the common core and New York State Education Commissioner John King for good reason. NYSUT (New York State United Teachers) union, with 600,000 members, recently passed a resolution to remove King and withdraw support for the Common Core State Standardized testing. At the same time, our governorÕ s silence on this issue is beyond disappointing. So far, the testing has proved to be nothing but offensive and ineffective to parents, students and educators alike throughout the state. In recent months, the NYS common core website linked children to a sex quiz site, while Mr. King brushed off accusations from concerned parents and judged the common coreÕ s popularity on the number of Ò hitsÓ on the NY webpage. The current Common Core standards are limited to English and math, but will expand to all subjects in the coming years. Instead of rolling these standards in one grade level at a time over several years, as other states have done, New York State has implemented them

for every math and English student from third to eighth grade at once. Along with the standards and the assessments, teachers are now subjected to modules Ñ scripted 10-week units that they are to follow in order to stay aligned to the core. Teacher artistry and creativity has been decimated, and although the commissioner may claim that the modules are not mandated, that local control of curriculum still exists, a closer look says otherwise: up to 25 percent of a grade 3-8 Math or ELA teacherÕ s annual evaluation is based on the grade-level state assessment, and the message at area common core trainings is that questions on the assessments will be structured like those on the modules. This is clearly a back-door mandate, and New York State teachers and students are at risk of becoming generic. Despite thousands of teacher layoffs in an era when state education aid has been drastically reduced, NYS is hiring Ò common core coachesÓ to come into our schools to help with the transition. Common Core can be traced back to the 2009 stimulus bill, which gave $4.35 billion to the Federal Department of Education. This created the Ò Race to the TopÓ competition between states. In order to qualify for funding, states needed to adopt Common Core. Participating states would then be exempt from many of the difficult provisions of the “No Child Left BehindÓ program. To date, Common Core has been adopted by 45 states and the District of Columbia, but many are already jumping ship, with opposition developing in the states of Utah, California, Indiana, and Missouri among others. The Common Core is further marred by the large corporations reaping the profits of its implementation. Pearson education executives believed the Common Core work performed by their nonprofit arm could later be sold by their for-profit organization and generate “tens of millions of dollarsÓ for the company. They have since agreed to pay $7.5 million to avoid prosecution by the Attorney General of New York state for blurring the lines between its not for profit and for profit company. We shouldnÕ t educate our kids because of the mere marketability of an educational reform, or by diluting individual choice by directing children where to go and what to learn. Stealing our educatorÕ s creative talents in exchange for a cookie cutter education for our children is just plain unacceptable. Ñ

Turning Back the Pages By Jean Hadden

• One Hundred Years Ago, February, 1914 •

Severe earthquake garners fear

Ò The Logan Fault,Ó which geologists tell us is a split in the lower rock stratum of the earth extending along the Atlantic seaboard from Canada to Florida, made another slip, Tuesday, Feb. 10, 1914 which at 1:34 p.m. caused a severe earthquake shock extending from Montreal to Washington, D.C. and as far west as St. Louis. It continued from 20 to 30 seconds and while it lasted the earth quivered like a big ball of jelly, with a terrifying tremor which spread consternation wherever it was felt. Many people believed that the end of the world had arrived. In Warrensburgh the shock was felt in its full severity. For the first 2 or 3 seconds it was the general impression that there had been a heavy explosion somewhere nearby. As the tremors continued, it became evident to all that it was something more than a mere local disturbance and it was first thought that buildings might fall and people rushed frantically from their homes out into the open. In several Warrensburgh homes dishes were shaken from tables and pictures swayed on the walls and the vibration made things jingle but no major damage was reported and local people lived in dread that another shock would occur. In the past earthquakes were much more common than they have been in recent years.

The earth rocks in Corinth

Four tons of dynamite stored near the Corinth plant of the International Paper Company exploded at 1:10 oÕ clock Monday morning, Feb. 16, 1914 and jarred the town more violently than the earthquake did last week. Many windows were broken and people rushed out from their homes in terror. The explosion was caused by a fire of unknown origin in the building where the dynamite was stored.

Tribute for a good church lady

At the recent annual meeting of the vestry of the parish of the Holy Cross Episcopal church in Warrensburgh, the subject was broached of the parish electing a memorial to Miss Almira N. Lobdell, who during her life time was one of the most faithful and generous communicants of the church and who by the terms of her will, after her death became, in perpetuity, a benefactor of the parish. After some lengthy discussion, the proposed memorial took the form of two electric light standards to be placed at the entrance gate of the church, on condition that the cost of one of these standards be defrayed by the parish at large and one standard has been generously provided for. The amount that it will be necessary to receive from the parish will be about $100, which will provide also for the installation of

the standard. (Note - These beautiful ornamental lights, adorning the steps from the public sidewalk to the church property path, have survived for one hundred years with Miss LobdellÕ s name proudly engraved upon them.)

Gala marriage celebration

Thomas OÕ Connor of Warrensburgh and Miss Sadie Lahey, of Minerva, were married Jan. 14, 1914 at St. JosephÕ s Church in Olmstedville by the brideÕ s pastor, the Rev. Father Kenney. The pretty little church was beautifully decorated with evergreen, tastefully arranged as a labor of love by the girlÕ s devoted friends. Miss Emma Welch, of Minerva, was the brideÕ s maid and the groom was attended by his nephew, John OÕ Connor of Warrensburgh. After the wedding the happy couple and their wedding party attendants were conveyed to the brideÕ s home by sleigh where a reception was held. They later left for Washington on their wedding tour. Thomas OÕ Connor, 40, son of Philip OÕ Connor, is junior proprietor of the Ò New Adirondack HotelÓ and is a member of the firm of O’Connor Brothers, owners of the hotel. (Note - The Adirondack Hotel was born in 1825 and after yet another of the hotel’s many fires, brothers Michael and Thomas O’Connor leased and took over management of the Ò New Adirondack HotelÓ on May 1, 1899, purchased it in 1904 and stayed for 23 years. The big old OÕ Connor family home was located on Main Street where the First National Bank is located today. In 1939 new owner Albert Emerson re-named the hotel Ò The Colonial ArmsÓ and after even more fires and many more owners, in November, 1994 it was torn down. Rite Aid Pharmacy is located there today.)

Adirondack Hotel -1902 -

An article in the Feb. 27, 1902 Warrensburgh News stated, Ò It looked like old town meeting times in front of the Adirondack Hotel Monday afternoon, when the public sale of Israel MeadÕ s cow took place to satisfy an unpaid school tax of $9.44 and costs. The chorus of bids was not loud or excited and the animal was finally “knocked down” to James Palmer, Mr. Mead’s son-in-law for nineteen dollars.Ó Ò Owing to the illness of Collector Alfred Stone, Constable Jerry Moynehan had the proceedings in charge.Ó (Note - Reminiscing about old days at the Adirondack Hotel, when it was leased by the OÕ Connor brothers, I found this little glimpse of its past included in a scrapbook owned by the late, great, Warrensburgh historian, Stewart Farrar.)

Man kept in storage

Hague relatives of Ray Ackerman, who died from smallpox on the battleship Ohio recently, will get the body of the young sailor after a lengthy correspondence with government officials. They have been notified that the body will be shipped from Charleston to Hague at the expiration of one year from the date of his death.

Died too soon

Mrs. Lee Bruno died suddenly of acute indigestion, Jan. 28, 1914 at her home in North Creek. She was in her usual good health the day before but awakened early Wednesday morning with severe pain and died before a physician reached her. She is survived by her husband and a brother, Oliver Hulett of North Creek. Much sympathy is felt for Mr. Bruno who had just completed building a new house and was about to move into it, an event to which he and his wife had long looked forward.

Caught red handed

Four Bolton fisherman while angling for pickerel through the ice in Northwest Bay, on Lake George, were caught red-handed by Game Protector D.N. Bump of Lake George and arrested for violation of the game law in fishing out of season. They were given a hearing before Justice Tabor of Bolton Landing. Oscar Belden was discharged as there was not sufficient evidence to hold him. Charles Belden and Byron Fraizier paid the fines imposed upon them and Hyram Fraizier, lacking sufficient funds to settle was committed to the County Jail at Lake George for 11 days.

News near and far

A cold winter is always followed by a late spring. Sleighing hereabouts is good. Thermometers recorded zero Sunday night, Feb. 8, 1914 and on Monday night it was 2 degrees below zero. All the ice houses in Warrensburgh are filled. Hosea Barber fell on the ice at Bolton Landing and hurt his eye.

Thanks rescuers To the Adirondack Journal: We would like to thank the Warrensburg Volunteer Fire Department, Warrensburg Rescue, the EMTÕ s and the North Warren Rescue Squad who aided us after a very serious vehicle accident on Jan. 14. We want to thank especially Justin Hull who kept John still for 20 - 30 minutes while they cut his seat belt from around his neck. Also want to thank the Emmitt Clark family who were able to contact the rescue squads. Kimberly Clark was our angel during this horrific situation as she got Linda out of the vehicle and stayed with John until his extraction. We want to thank the Glens Falls hospital saff, Nurses, and Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA’s) that helped to make John as comfortable as possible during this ordeal. A special thank you to Nancy Pratt as his ombudsman who fought like hell with our insurance company. Also Catherine Fisher at Glens Falls Hospital, the staff at the Adirondack Tri-County Nursing and Rehabilitation Center for all their efforts and patience while recovering at the center.

I was deeply disheartened to read your editorial on the proposed three strikes legislation. LetÕ s step back for a minute and look at the true intention of this proposal: to attempt to hinder driving under the influence and potentially save lives. Driving a car is a privilege and not a right, and with that privilege there is an understanding that there are rules to be followed. In New York state it is illegal to operate a vehicle when under the influence of alcohol with a BAC of .08 or higher. A driver who chooses to drink, drive, and is subsequently pulled over must accept the consequences. For this to happen three times before the possibility of permanently revoking their license is more than generous on the part of New York state. It is a proven fact that consuming alcohol, even one drink, directly impacts the functions of the frontal lobe, impairing judgement, reaction time, and problem solving abilities. To condone a driver who drinks and then drives Ò a short distance down an unpopulated stretch of rural road while just a sliver over the .08 BAC limitÓ is irresponsible and reprehensible. That one instance could result in the loss of life. Many in this North Country community may remember the two young camp counselors who were killed by a drunk driver on such a rural road. Because of someone elseÕ s choice, their young lives were taken and ripped away from their families, who were then left with a lifetime of grief and sorrow. This driver, by the way, was a repeat offender. It is simple. If you choose to drink, donÕ t drive. Have a designated driver. Find a ride. And if this is not a possibility, stay at home. I think that those who have driven under the influence and have hurt or killed someone as a result would give the same advice. We must place the lives and livelihood of the residents of our communities above the hardships and inconveniences of individuals who have had the chance to make a change, yet continue to choose to endanger the lives of others by repeated drinking and driving. Sarah Thomas, Warrensburg


A news brief that appeared on page 8 of last weekÕ s edition of the Adirondack Journal contained an error. The news brief should have said volunteers were needed to man the Main Desk of the Brant Lake Winter Carnival on Feb. 8, not the Lake George Winter Carnival. To volunteer or for more information on the carnival contact Cindy Mead at or call 494-3016.

Another side to minimum wage debate To the Adirondack Journal: There are, no doubt, many valid reasons to want to raise the minimum wage for working families. But it might make sense to look a little more deeply at the issue, in order to avoid the unintended consequences that have plagued so much recent legislative caprice and posturing in our state and in our nation. Working families are already aided by the Earned Income Tax Credit, which constitutes a de facto raise in the minimum wage, not to mention all the other forms of public assistance that have proliferated while the minimum wage has allegedly failed to keep pace. More worthy of consideration in the debate is that of the 3 percent of the workforce that works for minimum wage, 60 percent earn an increase in the first year. The word “earn” is an important one, which society should not lose as a concept for entrylevel workers. But the most significant fact, totally omitted by all parties in this dialogue, is that of these entry-level workers, the majority are students or others, working seasonally and/or part time, who are claimed as dependents from middle income households. I operate a resort and over the years have provided a great number of high school students with their very first work experience. Kids are allowed to begin work when they are 14. Many of them know very little about how to work, when they begin legal employment, and need to be taught a great deal. Although IÕ ve never actually started anyone at the bare minimum-wage level, explaining to them that I donÕ t want them to begin work with a minimum wage attitude, I have to say that a lot of kids are just not worth much when they start out. An employer can spend a lot of time getting them shaped up. In some cases, itÕ s a fairly charitable endeavor. I wonder, as the minimum wage is raised, how many people like myself, who have taught these teenagers how to be productive, will be able to continue to afford to do so. And if we donÕ t, then who will? Another government program? Something to instill a government work ethic in young people, who will no longer need to earn their increases? Jon Voorhees Indian Lake

Puppy socialization group forming

WARRENSBURG Ñ Irv West, a Thurman resident, was given a gift of a new puppy. He plans to train it to be a therapy dog, working primarily with troubled teens in crisis. As with any puppy, socialization at an early age is critical. So Irv is planning to initiate a puppy socialization group in the Warrensburg area. Meetings would be weekly for about half an hour, and there would be no charge to participate. Participation would be limited to 6 dogs, on a first come basis. A secondary benefit is that owners would learn how to solve pet-related problems from the success of other participants. Anyone interested in participating, or would like more information, should contact West at 623-3987 (any time between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.).

Warriors having another standout season By Seth Lang LAKE GEORGE Ñ The Lake George Warriors boyÕ s basketball teamsÕ championship season last year is a tough act to follow.

Nevertheless, thereÕ s no doubt the Warriors are hungry again this year as their 10-1 record shows. Ò WeÕ re playing well,Ó said Warriors Athletic Director Mark Bleibtrey. Leading the team again this year is junior point guard Joel Wincowski, averaging nearly 30 points per game.

The 2013-14 Lake George Varsity Boys Basketball team includes: (front, left to right): Jeff Naftaly, Tyler Brown, Andrew Zibro, Matt Bureau, Duncan Mularz, (rear): Dylan Smith, Colby Cracco, Gabe Sallstrom, Andrew McGowan, Joel Wincowski and Kyle Jones. Photo by Thom Randall

Ò It takes a team to achieve great things, it starts with Joel as he makes everyone around him better,Ó said Bleibtrey. After losing seven players to graduation last year it looks like the team is one again starting to build the kind of chemistry it takes to succeed in the Adirondack League. Finding such continuity in such a short time with a group of young men is no easy task. Lack of enrollment coupled with such a variety of other things to do makes it hard for schools to develop competitive rosters today. Head Coach Dave Jones said, Ò as clichŽ as it sounds, weÕ re taking one game at a time, thatÕ s just how we do things.Ó Jones also said itÕ s about more than winning. Ò WeÕ re together almost every day for a three to four month period and I hope the kids can take something away from this experience beyond winning,Ó Jones said. One of the keys to the Warriors success is their defensive intensity which lends itself to the fast pace tempo they thrive in. TheyÕ d much rather get a turn over or defensive rebound and fast break with numbers on their side than play five on five. One thing is for sure; starting with the coach, right through their bench, this team is hungry again this year.

Groundhog Day is Sunday, Feb. 2 and tradition has had it that if the critter doesnÕ t see his shadow there will be an early spring. While I do enjoy our winters here in the Adirondacks, I for one am praying that he wonÕ t see it. While doing some research on the above mentioned topic I came across some interesting fun facts about groundhogs. Did you know that a groundhog whistles when scared or that a groundhogÕ s teeth never stop growing? It was also discovered that the tradition of stringing popcorn and cranberries on Christmas trees was to feed the birds through the hard months of winter. This will be an activity I do with my young son during the Presidents week break this February. Fireworks on Gore Mountain the evening of Sunday, Jan. 19 caused a mild stir here in Thurman. Folks were asking one another questions on the Town facebook page, Thurman Happenings, asking who could hear the rumbling thunder-like noise. It was all settled when one resident listened to where the noise was coming from and deduced it was from the north. He logically thought of Gore Mountain and upon googling the facility found they were indeed setting off the noise makers.

hosted in Albany in 1995 and Saratoga in 2003 and proves good for the local economy. On a conservative scale the club estimates the event will bring about $700,000 to region but has the potential to bring in more than a million dollars to local businesses. Lake George Mayor Rober Blais said heÕ s very happy to see the event in Lake George. Ò Lake George thrives on large groups coming to the village anytime of the year. This classic automobile show will expose hundreds of auto enthusiasts to our area. Similar to the Americade Rally or Adirondack Nationals, folks return with their families year around.Ó Between 250 - 500 cars are expected to be present throughout the week of events. They usually range from 1920Õ s and 30Õ s classics to high-end modern day vehicles. Ò Some of these cars havenÕ t seen a drop of

rain,Ó said Roglieri. He believes Lake George will provide great access for many Canadians that usually make the event as well as several local collectors in the immediate area. Local seminars as well as bus charters to Camp Sagamore, The Adirondack Museum, Natural Stone Bridge and caves, lunch at the Copperfield Inn, Lake George cruises and many other activities will be available to those that attend. The club, founded in 1958, provides activities and services for enthusiasts of all Cadillacs, from the single cylinder models to the exotic V-16Õ s. Membership is open to persons anywhere in the world and ownership of a Cadillac is not required. To highlight the week, the last day of events, Saturday, July 12, there will be an awards banquet based on the top cars judged on a 200-point system. For more information on the event visit

each outhouse and the race will tentatively begin around 2:30 p.m. Saturday. Froggy 100.3 will be broadcasting live from the event. Another new attraction offered is the vintage snowmobile display competition. The competition is expected to draw a lot of vintage snowmobile owners out to show off their sleds and compete. The festivities will kick off with snowshoe softball around 11 a.m. Fireworks are scheduled for dusk, with music by the Stony Creek Band that evening and food and activities will be held all day long. Ò Adirondackers arenÕ t afraid to spend a day out in the cold, they just need something to do and this event fits the bill for all ages,” said Mede. Anyone interested in registering a vintage snowmobile, softball or broom ball team or an out house ($25 registration fee) please call or email Cindy Mead at or call 494-3016.

Curling demonstrations by the Lake Placid Curling Club will be held during the Brant Lake Winter Carnival.
