Freight and local wine

This Week INDIAN LAKE

By Thom Randall thom@denpubs.com

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 Ñ or 5,000 carloads Ñ 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.

Paul Smith’s Woodsmen to demonstrate logging skills SARANAC LAKE Ñ While carnivals in the tamer, less hardy parts of the country tend to feature innocuous demonstrations like baton twirling and juggling, North County folks are cut from a sturdier cloth and prefer to take their festivities with a flash of blue steel and glimpse of danger. Ò Some schools have basketball or football,Ó said Brett McLeod, an associate professor of forestry at Paul SmithÕ s College. Ò This is what we have.Ó McLeod is referring to the schoolÕ s woodsman team, the intercollegiate sport

that pulls together skills like axe throwing, wood splitting and crosscut sawing with a competitive spin. The Paul SmithÕ s College Woodsmen will demonstrate these, among other skills in two hour-long exhibitions, one on each Saturday of the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival at 11 a.m. in Riverside Park. Ò ItÕ s a lot like rodeo in that itÕ s one of the few sports that came out of the work that men did,Ó said McLeod. Ò ThereÕ s a practical purpose to it Ñ how fast could you cut a tree down and roll a log, for example Ñ that

comes right out of the logging camps.Ó As loggers grew more adept at lightningquick piecework, said McLeod, these skills gradually evolved into a competitive slate. Paul SmithÕ s has had a team since 1947 and according to the schoolÕ s website, they lay claim to having the longest winning streak in the history of intercollegiate lumberjack sports, winning the Super Bowl of lumberjacking, known as the Spring Meet, from 1957-1966.

INDIAN LAKE Ñ JanuaryÕ s Indian Lake Central School District Board of Education meeting hosted a contingent of presenters across a broad range of topics.

Boces Program

First on the agenda were a number of visitors from Boces headed by Jim Dexter, Boces District Superintendent. The objective of the visit was to further enrich the partnership between Boces and ILCSD and

to provide an overview of the types of programming that are currently being availed by ILCSD students. As part of the presentation, two students were present to provide an overview of their respective Boces programs in welding and health care. The students took part in a question and answer presentation that provided not only an overview of their activities in the two programs, but the motives of the individual students in selecting the program of interest and how the program is expected to play a role in their individual career goals. Both students closed their presentations with solid plans for continued education in their chosen Boces areas of interest and ultimately a career in the selected fields.

Paris Trip

Next, Jane Hinckley, ILCSD French teacher took the Board through a power point overview of the trip to Paris, France which she organized and was attended by a number of students, teachers, parents and even some Board of Education members. The presentation used pictures taken by ILCSD Art Teacher, Lauren Arsenault, who also attended the trip. Through the pictures and explanatory slides, the major highlights of the trip were covered. The conclusion was that the students taking part in the trip found it to be a valuable and memorable learning experience and one that CONTINUED ON PAGE 3

Indian Lake Ice Fishing Derby is a Big Success

By Bill Quinlivan

Starscape planned as part of Indian Lake SnoCade

INDIAN LAKE Ñ It will be night of stars on Tuesday, Feb. 18, at the Indian Lake Ski Hill, when SnoCadeª Starscape takes place, as part of the expanded Indian Lake Winterfest. Indian Lake is known for its dark skies, which makes for a perfect atmosphere to view the universe. The location includes the warming hut (complete with the very important restrooms) and food service courtesy of Grizzly Grill. First the stars highlighting the night will be the youth hockey program on display. The blades will be flashing around the the ice rink as pucks singe the goal like comets. After the skating program, free skating will open to all (skates can be rented at PineÕ s Country Store). The celestial viewing begins at 7:30 p.m., when the lights are low and the skies begin to dazzle Jamie Thomas, star king, will organize the observing. Binoculars will be available, but feel free to bring your own optical. SnoCade has scheduled a viewing of the Moons of Jupiter on the night. Also, every 27 nights it is cloudy in Indian Lake, In the event of cloudy skies, he will have a slide show.

INDIAN LAKE Ñ It has become a tradition and a big attraction to the Town of Indian Lake. On Saturday, Jan. 18, the Indian Lake/ Blue Mountain Fish and Game Association, Inc. sponsored the ninth annual Ice Fishing Derby on Lake Adirondack. One couldnÕ t ask for better conditions. The ice was 14 inches thick with a small amount of snow cover and no slush. The temperature was 8 drgrees at 5 a.m., but by early afternoon it had risen into the low 30Õ s and it was sunny with calm winds until late in the day. But it wasnÕ t just the weather that brought out the maximum allowable crowd of 200 participants. It was the fishing and the prizes. “Ice fishing people are hardy,” remarked Ernie Pollman, spokesman for the derby. “Our first year of doing the derby in 2005, at 5 a.m. it was -22 degrees and we still had a crowd.Ó The fishing started at 7 a.m. and the derby continued until 3 p.m. Five cash prizes were given per hour for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd largest pike and for the 1st and 2nd largest perch. In addition, there were cash prizes for the dayÕ s largest pike and perch and there were 10 Ò doorÓ prizes drawn at noon on the day of the derby with the largest of these being a Jiffy LP power ice auger. Twenty-one volunteers helped the derby be a success on the day of the event. The largest pike caught was 7 pounds 4 ounces, and 29 3/4-inches in length. This prize winner was caught by Kenneth Schirmer of Fishkill, N.Y. The largest perch weighed 8 ounces and measured 10 1/4-inches and was caught by Ray Baker of Porter Corners, NY. All in all, the derby brought a lot of fishermen to the Town of Indian Lake and a lot of joy to all who participated and helped make it a success once again. So many are looking forward to next years 10th anniversary.

Kenneth Schirmer of Fishkill, N.Y. displays the day’s winning Pike which he caught during the Indian Lake Ice Fishing Derby. The Pike weighed 7 lbs., 8 oz. and measured 29 ¾” in length.

ILCS

Harris to deliver to the Board a more specific presentation of logistics and associated funding needs for consideration in the current budgeting process.

Continued from page 1 provided education that could not have been gained in 6 days of classroom time. Certainties were given by the Board that future student trips to Paris will be on the horizon based on the educational value imparted to the students attending this past trip.

Principal’s Report

Principal, Dave Snide, opened his report by updating the Board that the students are currently in the period for Midterms, Finals, Regents and Regents Competency Tests. Mr. Snide also mentioned his thanks to the local Rotary Club and to Rotarian, Mr. Ernie Pollman for the presentation of dictionaries to the members of the 3rd grade class. Mr. Snide made the following announcements of upcoming events during his report: • High School Academic Fair will be on Friday, Feb. 14 • ILCS Senior Night is scheduled for Feb. 14 vs. Old Forge • LLCS Senior Night is scheduled for Jan. 24 vs. Lake Placid • Basketball Sectionals will be Feb. 17 through March 1; Regionals March 3-8 and NYSPHSAA Championships March 14-16.

Pellet Boiler and related projects

David Dungate of Bioengineering Project Partners (BPP) was on hand to provide both general and specific information about the wood pellet boiler lease-financing project. ILCSD is participating as a recipient of a pellet boiler on an energy performance contract lease financing arrangement with BPP by way of a grant awarded through the efforts of Mr. Dungate and BPP. Other participants along with the district are the Olympic Training Center, Paul SmithÕ s College, North Country Community College and the North Country School. The energy performance contract with BPP guarantees savings on heating costs for the school vs. its current annual heating costs. Mr. Dungate explained that this allows the school to benefit from the wood pellet boiler technology, cap its heating costs over an 18-year basis and eventually own the pellet boiler at the end of the 18-year lease. It also helps to feed a green, alternative energy demand that can be expected to establish and expand an Adirondack Community wood pellet industry and help keep monies that currently flow out of the community for fossil fuel use while helping to grow jobs and green energy industry in the Adirondacks. Because of the need to coordinate the specific installation of the pellet boiler technology into the current heating plant and equipment resources of the school and assess associated opportunities to streamline the existing heating plants and their efficiency, Mike Harris from Bernier Carr and Associates was on hand. Mr. Harris was asked to work closely with Mr. Dungate throughout the project and to additionally assess any additional funding necessary to address the removal of one and upgrading the efficiency of another existing oil-fired boiler as back up to the pellet system. Regarding funding needs, Mr. Harris is to also consider the remaining asbestos abatement as well as the still unresolved acquisition and installation of a generator. The Board is expecting Mr. Dungate and Mr.

Railway

Continued from page 1 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: www.sncsnowtrain.com.

Superintendent’s Report

As part of his report, Mr. Mark Brand announced that the revised Annual Professional Performance Review plan was submitted to NYSED for review. In addition he announced that ILCSD would host a True North Superintendent and Board Member meeting on Wednesday Jan. 29 at 7 p.m. Mr. Brand made a special point of mentioning that the district is being contacted by agencies interested in sending international students to ILCSD for the 2014 /15 school year. Brand emphasized that the program has been very successful over this school year and that the two students currently enrolled have been ideal. He went on to explain that the only limiting factor faced by the program and the benefits it holds to the district and its students is the need for host families. With that in mind, ILCSD will be holding an orientation meeting for potential host families on Feb. 4 at 7 p.m. in the school cafeteria. Anyone interested in becoming a host family is invited to attend. The next regular scheduled meeting of the ILCSD Board of Education will be on Feb. 11 at 7 p.m. in the school cafeteria.

Woodsmen

Continued from page 1 The demonstrations at the Winter Carnival will include speed cutting, said McLeod, who is the teamÕ s head coach, but an emphasis will be placed on traditional lumberjack sports like speed-chopping, sawing, axe throwing, speed climbing and log rolling. One of the most popular and dangerous sports is the underhand chop, said McLeod. It simulates the days when a felled tree had to be cut into manageable links with saws. “Stand on top of the trunk, walk down it and fling the axe between your feet,Ó advised McLeod. Ò Then cut, spin around and cut the backside.Ó McLeodÕ s team might go through a 10-inch log in 20 seconds using racing axes, a specialized piece of equipment. Axe throwing has always been a crowd favorite at the Winter Carnival. Ò ItÕ s like lumberjack darts,Ó said McLeod. The Paul SmithÕ s team is coed, consisting of about 20 men and 10 women. Most of come in without experience, said team captain and Forestry Club chief Garrett Gregorek. Ò WeÕ ll have two teams of six competing against each other as a little skit,Ó said Gregorek on SaturdayÕ s event schedule. Also on deck is something Gregorek, a fourth-year student and Brandon, Vt. native calls, Ò the hare chair,Ó a playful act designed to cross the teamÕ s brand of chainsaw prowess as well as entertain and delight the crowd. Ò I have fun doing it and itÕ s something I really like doing,Ó he said. Ò ItÕ s good to get people out and get them involved.Ó Ò ItÕ s a mix of speed and precision skills but also family-friendly,Ó added McLeod. Ò ItÕ s all about having a good time.Ó

Long Lake resident to give presentation LONG LAKE Ñ To help you beat the winter blues, TAUNY is offering two afternoon presentations in February that will warm you up with talk of greenery and outdoor life. The public is welcome to both programs, which begin at 1:30 p.m. Afternoon refreshments will be served following the presentations. On Thursday, Feb. 6, Hallie Bond will present Ò Mountain Greenery,Ó a look back at how earlier generations of North Country residents tended indoor gardens, and what houseplants were popular in earlier times. On Thursday, Feb. 27, the focus will move to the farm as Loretta Lepkowski presents Ò Celebrating Family Farms of the Tug Hill Region.Ó An artist based in Lowville, Lepkowski has created a traveling exhibit of paintings of people and scenes on Tug Hill Farms.

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 Right: Saratoga & North Creek Railway representatives Justin Gonyo and Sue Wilder display a prototype of the railway’s private-brand wine, which Gonyo said would be available to rail passengers as soon as this summer.

Common Core the wrong choice

T

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

Letters to the Editor

Disheartened by editorial To the News Enterprise: 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.

Personhood for Chimps?

R

ecently filed lawsuits, in three New York counties, have the potential to interrupt a variety of biomedical research programs. These lawsuits, having the goal of establishing “legal personhood” for chimpanzees, were filed by a group called the Non-human Rights Project (NhRP) on behalf of four chimps, two of which were confined in a research facility. From the perspective of one who has long been impressed by the cognitive abilities of the higher primates, dolphins and whales, there is definite merit in considering treating these intelligent animals more humanely. In 1977 I had the good fortune to meet Jane Goodall and talked at length with her about her field research on free-living chimps in Africa. She especially impressed me with her strong arguments against any confinement of these creatures by humans. In this vein some have even argued that keeping such highly evolved animals confined against their will for human purposes is tantamount to slavery. Meanwhile PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has been campaigning for many years to have research with live animals banned altogether. While an older organization, the Animals Legal Defense Fund (ALDF) has grown more prominent in recent years with chapters in many law schools, indicative of the increased attention being given to the legal issues surrounding our

River Ramblings

F

By Evelyne Greene

or winter newcomers to the Upper Hudson, and you who have not read or understood my many attempts to explain this before: That brilliant white stuff that sometimes fills the Hudson from Thurman to The Glen is not snow, and has nothing to do with it. It is Ò frazil iceÓ (pronounced like frazzle), which is made of tiny, round, very thin disks of clear ice). Frazil forms in turbulent rivers (and the ocean and sometimes lakes) when the air is below about 18 degrees F. The river water itself has to be a fraction of a degree below 32 F (super-cooled). The nucleus of each frazil crystal is an ice crystal, often from the freezing of tiny drops from bursting bubbles. The frazil disks try to put out “dendrites” (like snowflakes) but they keep breaking off in the rough water, creating unending nuclei. When the tons of frazil floating down the river hang up on gravel islands or get clogged in a curve, a floating cover of loose frazil can form across the river. The inexorable frazil coming down the river gets pulled under the cover by the current, where it collects and builds Ò hanging damsÓ , which eventually block the current. The river water is slowed down by the blockages. When it moves at less than two miles an hour, it collects on the surface. The hanging dams cause the water level in the river to rise, loosening and spreading out the frazil cover until the edges are above the sloping cobble shores. (You can hear crackling of the frozen-over pools of water on the edge as they are cracked by the rising water.) The pressure from the still collecting frazil and the loosening of the former cover cause the hanging dams to give way, lowering the water level quite quickly and leaving huge frazil banks on the shores. Any questions?? I still have lots, too! The frigid cold weather was great for frazil-making, of course. The river frazil backed up to just below The Glen. Then the warm rain raised the water level quickly and opened up a channel through the frazil from

Notes from the Planet Earth By Wes Dingman treatment of non-human animals. But considered from the perspective of one who has used a variety of captive animals in biomedical research, I can certainly understand the dismay of those whose productive research using chimpanzees may end if these cases are decided in favor of the chimps. In response to these recent lawsuits, members of the National Association of Biomedical Research are gearing up to challenge any laws constraining primate research which is often carried out for the purpose of either learning more about brain physiology or developing vaccines for ultimate use in treating humans for difficult-to-treat infectious diseases. The approach being taken by the NhRP is based on a 1772 English case of an escaped slave who was caught, imprisoned, and then released by the chief justice of the Court of the KingÕ s Bench under the common law writ of habeas corpus. This case ultimately led to the abolition of slavery in England. The emerThe Glen almost to Thurman. This cold snap (starting Jan. 27) is again filling up the channel. Maybe the frazil will last till spring this time. (It always used to stay in place all winter.) If you can find a safe place to park where the frazil is collecting at the upper end of the clogged river, it is fascinating to watch how this kind of ice acts. It is loosely cohesive, like wet sand, and big sections of it hang together, sliding against adjoining sections, instantly raising white ridges on both sections. You can hear the rubbing of the billions of tiny crystals. After a really cold night, there can be great jumbled masses of frazil chunks which have been raised up above the water level because of the shoving and recoagulating that goes on all night, and finally frozen in place. And there will be absolutely smooth-sided masses where one section slid against another, then froze when the water level went down. Caution: Wear a down jacket, snowpants, insulated boots, the whole nine yards if you want to spend any time watching. A really warm coat with hood can work too. Google Ò Saratoga woods and waterwaysÓ on Jan. 25 for some cool pictures of one thing frazil does when it gets squeezed together just a little. As the chunks and banks of frazil are very porous, like snowbanks, when they get wet from rain or from being in water again, they disintegrate quickly. In the spring it is fun to watch the spectacular white vertical banks calve off like a glacier, leaving the bank still vertical.

Frazil ice, as you see here in a recent picture of the Hudson River, forms in turbulent rivers (and the ocean and sometimes lakes) when the air is below about 18 degrees F. The river water itself has to be a fraction of a degree below 32 F (super-cooled). Photo by Jacqueline Donnelly

No to Big Oil To the News Enterprise: As a consumer I have to be skeptical of Big Oil and what will happen once the Keystone Pipe Line is finished and oil is flowing to the gulf. Big Oil is saying the oil from the pipeline will not be exported but used in the states. This is another misleading statement as they plan to export more of Ò our crude oil productsÓ once the pipeline is complete. This will keep us paying higher prices for gas and diesel. The United States is producing more crude oil than any other country in the world and we are paying for it. Other oil producing nations such as Venezuela, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and a host of others are discounting the price of gas for their people and U.S. oil producers are raising our prices. For example in Venezuela gas is 19 cents per gallon and in Iran they pay 42 cents. We subsidize our Big Oil to the tune of 4 billion tax dollars a year and cut workers off unemployment. I would love to see the Keystone Pipeline completed after environmental concerns are addressed, but I would also like to see prices at the pump drop as they do for the OPEC Countries and others. Egypt, which receives $2.2 billion a year in foreign aid from the United States, gives its people discounted gas at $1.21 per gallon. One doesnÕ t have to be a Republican, Democrat, Conservative or Liberal to understand Ò We the peopleÓ are being taken advantage of by Big Oil and Washington! Keystone Pipeline yes with reservation, continue to subsidize Big Oil no! Gary P. Guido Ticonderoga gence of this current effort to advance the rights of chimpanzees has coincided with a recent action by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) which has, at the urging of the Institute of Medicine (IOM), elected to phase out most of the chimp research being done in its facilities. The NIH currently houses some 360 research chimps and is gearing up to send all but about 50 of them to a sanctuary such as Chimp Haven (www.chimphaven.org) in Louisiana where such animals can live freely Ò in retirementÓ while being well supplied with food and veterinary care. Also in keeping with this action, the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service has recently issued a proposed rule that would list captive chimpanzees as an endangered species. As with the very controversial 2012 decision by the U. S. Supreme Court granting Ò personhoodÓ to corporations which has prompted a number of national organizations to begin campaigning vigorously for its reversal, I expect that our courts will be hearing many interesting arguments from both sides of this issue. I also suspect that any decisions that limit live animal research significantly will be difficult to make universal (as have efforts to stop whaling) and, for better or worse, result in some animal research being moved Ò offshore.Ó

DEC makes call to dismantle Marcy Dam By Seth Lang

seth@denpubs.com NORTH ELBA Ñ The State Department of Environmental Conservation has decided to dismantle Marcy Dam, which was severely damaged by Tropical Storm Irene in August 2011. Marcy Dam, a wooden dam on the Marcy Brook located in the Adirondack High Peaks in the town of North Elba, New York, built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930Õ s, impounds Marcy Dam Pond. The dam is accessible by hiking the 2.1 miles from Adirondack Loj, and serves as a favorite first spot to take a break for hikers, snowshoers and skiers alike on their way to the high peaks. With breathtaking views of Mt. Colden and Avalanche Pass, lean-toÕ s at the site are open to campers and trails extend to some of the most popular Adirondack High Peaks, including Mt. Marcy. In August 2011, floodwaters from Irene washed away the damÕ s gate and footbridge, draining the pond. In June 2012, crews with the Adirondack Mountain Club (AMC) built a wooden footbridge constructed of logs 250 feet below Marcy Dam, allowing people to cross the brook to get to ad-

jacent trails. The AMC claims this new bridge will be much more resistant to high water. Since then, the fate of the dam has sparked controversy throughout the region. Many desperately wanted the dam to be replaced as it was one of the most visited and photographed places in all of the Adirondacks. Another option considered was to allow the dam to fail on its own, however, a catastrophic failure would result in ecological damage from the release of the silt behind the dam and possibly result in injury or death of people. Instead, the DEC opted for a more ecological solution in dismantling the dam over the next 5 years. DEC Spokesman David Winchell said the decision was made due to a number of factors including, cost, safety and the fact that the dam is located in a wilderness area. The dam is currently permitted as a low hazard dam. DEC dam safety regulations require that any modifications to a permitted dam include bringing the dam into full compliance with the dam safety regulations and the cost to repair or rebuild Marcy Dam to bring it into full compliance is prohibitive, Winchell said.

Ò The benefits provided by the dam are almost wholly aesthetic. It provides no practical or environmental benefit. The ponded water upstream of the dam is mostly filled with sediment and does not provide habitat for fish. The dam prevents the movement of fish upstream,Ó Winchell said. The DEC asks that visitors recognize the important principles of wilderness management, including, allowing rivers and streams to flow unfettered and to minimize human made structures. The dam will be removed by DEC staff in stages over a five year period to allow the vegetation to grow on the exposed sediment behind the dam and thereby anchor the sediment and minimize the amount of sediment carried down Marcy Brook. When asked what affect the removal of the dam will have on wildlife in the area, AMC Executive Director Neil Woodworth said he believed there would be very little impact. Ò ThereÕ s still a flow of water and a viable trout brook below the dam and that wonÕ t change,Ó Woodworth said. Irene also destroyed the Duck Hole Dam, located in the High Peaks, also an iconic spot in the Adirondacks that the DEC decided not to replace.
