Rachael Ray fans line-up for tickets PAGE 3 BOLTON LANDING

By Thom Randall THURMAN „ Despite persistent frigid weather which has continued to curb the traditional March flow of sap in Adirondack ñ sugarbushes,î Thurman Maple Days attracted robust crowds over the past two weekends. Fragrant steam emanated from sugar houses boiling down sap to make maple syrup this last weekend, while visitors tasted samples of the brew and shopped for maple products. Hosts at the seven sites on the tour through Thurman witnessed familiar faces in the crowd „ those who have made the trek an annual rite „ as well as dozens of newcomers. Those returning to Nettle Meadow farm to visit goats CONTINUED ON PAGE 14

DEKALB JUNCTION „ On June 28, 1985, Joe Gilbert graduated from high school in Ogdensburg, a small city in St. Lawrence County.

ThatÍ s the country I wanted to serveƒ and I did.î After 24 years, Gilbert returned to the North Country and touched down to a changed landscape. Manufacturing jobs had left the region and factories were closed. Family-owned dairy farms faced tough times and several of GilbertÍ s family members,

including his uncles, were out of work. ñ It wasnÍ t the North Country I left,î he said. Gilbert, 47, said the country is in a prolonged state of decline, a direct result of what he views as a sharp tack away from its founding principles as laid out in the Constitution in 1787.

Rachael Ray fans wait for hours to get tickets By Allison Squires LAKE GEORGE — Hours before dawn Saturday, the first people seeking tickets to the annual Rachael Ray cooking show arrived at Lake George High School under dark skies to assure theyÍ d be at the front of the line. The much-desired tickets for the 12th annual show didn’t go on sale until 9 a.m., but the first woman in the line, Marsha Bartels of Hadley, said she felt the four-and-a-half-hour wait was worth it. ñ My family said to me, ï YouÍ re crazy!Í î said Bartels, a Lake George alumnus. ñ But I said, ï Why not?î Bartels arrived at 4:30 a.m. to be the first to buy her limit of six tickets. “I’ve been going for five years,” she said. “It’s an excellent show.î Bartels was the first in line at 7:30 a.m. when the front doors to the high school were opened. About 70 people were already in line behind her, which continued to grow until the sale began 90 minutes later. By 8:15 a.m., the line for tickets stretched all the way down the main hallway of the school „ dozens of people had waited for hours to get the best seats possible in the auditorium, which accommodates 530 people. Most of those in line bought their maximum number of six tickets, buying them for friends to save them a long wait. Three days later, 80 tickets remain. Pam Morin, treasurer of the Lake George Alumni Association, said she expects to sell out every ticket, as in years past. Proceeds go towards scholarships for Lake George graduates entering their second year of college. Due to their fundraising efforts, the Lake George Alumni Association is annually able to donate about ten $1,000 scholarships through this program.

In addition, the Alumni Association also donates money to the school for educational equipment and supplies. In the past, they have bought books and other materials for the elementary school library, and theyÍ ve purchased digital ñ Smart Boardsî for classrooms. Also, the group annually grants two $500 awards at graduation ceremonies. This yearÍ s Lake George Rachael Ray Cooking Show begins at 7 p.m. April 11 and is renowned in the region for being entertaining as well as offering people an opportunity to meet with Ray, who graduated from Lake George High School in 1986. The show features a cooking demonstration by Ray, who an-

nually answers questions throughout the show, sharing her observations and quips on human behavior, her family and living under the bright lights of national television. Afterwards she will be posing with fans for fast photographs and signing copies of her new cookbook. Everyone attending is to receive copies of the recipes prepared during the show. Meanwhile, recipes featured the nightÍ s show will be cooked up by Chef Deric Buck of the Bay Meadows Golf Club and BogeyÍ s Pub & Grill for show patrons to sample. Dessert will be provided by the Lake George Baking Company. Before the show, patrons may purchase copies of RachaelÍ s cookbooks, and are encouraged to bring items of dog, cat or people food for the benefit of the “Purrs and Paws” rescue shelter, the SPCA, and the Lake George and Lake Luzerne food pantries. Donations count as an entry into a drawing for a special door prize. The Lake George Alumni Association and Lake George High School extends thanks to all the volunteers assisting with the event. The Alumni Association meets six times a year to focus on the needs of current Lake George students, the school, and Lake George alumni. The groupÍ s annual banquet will be held Oct. 12, and will feature the 50th reunion of the Class of 1964. Wall of Honor recognition, and Community Service and Educator awards will be presented at the event. Nominations for these honors may be sent to P.O. Box 575, Lake George, NY, 12845. As of Tuesday March 25, several dozen tickets were still available to the local Rachael Ray show. To purchase one or several, contact the Lake George High School office at 668-5452 ext. 1021.

Lake George Rotary Club accepting grant requests

LAKE GEORGE „ The Rotary Club of Lake George invites nonprofit organizations in the Lake George School District or throughout Warren County to apply for a grant funded by proceeds of the clubÍ s annual Americade motorcycle raffle. Rotary Club President Mike Craft said this week the Rotarians look forward to matching or surpassing last yearÍ s grants. In 2013, the club awarded 12 organizations $500 to $2,000, and Craft said the group plans to award at least this amount this year.

The Rotarians aim to support organizations that directly aid people in need, Craft said. To raise the funds for grants, the Rotary Club holds a raffle in June during the Americade festival. The winner gets to choose either a Honda Gold Wing, a Harley Classic or $20,000. Working alongside the 20 members of the club, each grant recipient is required to help sell raffle tickets throughout Americade week. The ticket sales fund the grants. Since 2002, the Rotary Club of Lake George has awarded 122 grants totalling more than

$175,000 to about 40 local nonprofit organizations. The grants funded such initiatives as providing equipment for Camp ChingachgookÍ s sailing program for people with disabilities, paying toward repairs to the Lake George Fire Dept. marine rescue boat, providing new bookshelves for the Caldwell Lake George Library, and producing a new brochure for the Lake George Land Conservancy. Any qualifying nonprofit organization interested in submitting a grant proposal should contact Nancy Jefts at or 494-8000 for the guidelines. All grant

proposals must be received by May 1. Rotarians develop community service projects that address many of todayÍ s most critical issues, such as children at risk, poverty and hunger, the environment, illiteracy, and violence. They also support programs for youth, educational opportunities and international exchanges for students, teachers, and other professionals, and vocational and career development. The Lake George Rotary Club meets weekly and new members are welcomed. For details on the club, see:

Fundraiser set for man and wife both fighting leukemia By Thom Randall LAKE GEORGE „ Area residents will be getting their hair cut and styled, their fingernails painted and their backs massaged this weekend „ to raise money for a local man and wife who are both battling leukemia. The event features a number of beauticians and a massage therapist who are donating their time and talents to raise money to help defray the ongoing medical expenses of Randy and Jacqueline Tyner, according to Tina Cacckello of TinaÍ s Hair Affair. The fundraiser is to be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday March 30 at 2199B Rte. 9 in Lake George, the location of TinaÍ s Hair Affair and Lake George Massage Therapy. ñ One hundred percent of the proceeds of this

event will go to the expenses the Tyners are now facing,î Cacckello said. ñ WeÍ re attempting to raise awareness about this familyÍ s needs.î Joyce Azukas of Lake George Massage said the Tyners are her neighbors on Skara Brae Drive. ñ Jackie and Randy Tyner are like the perfect couple,î she said, noting that Jacqueline is back home now after undergoing a stem-cell replacement operation in Boston. ñ The whole block is pitching in to lend support.î ñ The Tyners are incredible people,î she continued, noting that JacquelineÍ s health insurance will only be in force for a limited time, but their family is facing substantial medical bills already „ and that Randy, a teacher for 25 years in the Glens Falls School District, lost his job not long ago. Jacqueline is a social worker at Jackson

Heights Elementary School, and she also serves as a clinical social worker for Hudson Headquaters Health Network. She was diagnosed in August with chronic myelogenous leukemia. Their story of their medical challenges and their courage has been detailed in published reports and postings on the ñ R&J Support Fundî Facebook page and a CaringBridge website page. Randy Tyner has been searching for jobs, but he has recently been spending his time providing vital care for Jacqueline. Without health insurance, one of the therapeutic drugs Jacqueline is taking is estimated to cost $12,000 per year, and another is expected to reach nearly $40,000 annually. ñ ItÍ s heartbreaking to see these things happen to people, particularly when theyÍ re so young,î According to reports, although Randy has his own considerable health challenges with fight-

ing T-cell large granular lymphocytic leukemia, heÍ s been focusing on Jacqueline, as well as other patients facing health crises.

Tickets on sale now for homegrown musical ‘Four Play’ GLENS FALLS „ A musical penned and produced by a Queensbury couple „ thatÍ s enjoyed rave reviews at its initial readings „ will be premiering April 3 through 6 at the Charles Wood Theater. Rick Wilson, a local mortgage broker wrote the script „ and his wife Nancy is producing the show „ which features professional Equity actors. A reading of the musicalÍ s script last year in Glens Falls sparked prompted considerable enthusiasm about its prospects, and after the show was fully developed, it is ready to go on tour, according to publicist Kate Austin-Avon. The musical is now booked in four venues in New York for 14 shows, with an expectation that it will extend its tour nationally. Actors are now in Glens Falls rehearsing the show. Austin-Avon describes the show as ñ a laugh-yourself-silly true-to-life musical about friendship, menÍ s health, and aging. The musical begins with four male students arriving at college, full of youthful doubts and fears, Austin Avon said. ñ They become friends and pledge a future of golf and fun,î she said, noting that the plot resembles playwright Rick WilsonÍ s personal experiences at Siena College „ where the show is to be staged June 7, one stop on its initial tour. In a recent interview, Wilson talked about what led him to authoring the show. “About five years ago, my wife and I and two other couples attended a showing of ñ Menopause: The Musicalî and two of us guys were mocked mercilessly by both the women onstage

and in the audience,î he said. ñ I left theater laughing, and I said to myself, ï ThereÍ s got to be a male response to this „ how the stages in life men go through could be presented in humorous way.Í So about three years ago, I started writing it. Since then, itÍ s evolved, and itÍ s amazing how itÍ s come to life.î Part of the evolution for this musical which depicts the four menÍ s friendship over 40 years, Wilson continued, was to add a sole female character. ñ We wrote in a part for a female to show how shallow men really are,î he quipped. Nancy Wilson added her thoughts. ñ The showÍ s premise is that these four guys get together every year to play golf, and as they age, they discuss their concerns,î she said. ñ ItÍ s clever, itÍ s fresh, itÍ s a very sweet story about the friendship between aging baby boomers.î Starring in the play are actors Bill Carmichael, Richard Koons, Chuck Muckle, Barry Pratt and Melissa Bayern. The show is directed by Avery Babson with musical direction by John Benware and Equity Stage Manager Sara Friedman.

Bolton Central eyes new athletic field By Thom Randall BOLTON LANDING „ Local students may have an additional sports field by fall if negotiations are successful between Bolton Central school officials and the owner of a nearby plot of land, according to Superintendent of Schools Ray Ciccarelli. The owner of the land „ a plot of 7 to 8 acres off Horicon Avenue „ made a preliminary proposal recently to a school board member for the sale or lease of the land to Bolton Central, he said. The plot of land, level and predominantly clear, is across Horicon Avenue and down the street a short distance from the school, he said. Ciccerelli said the offer came as a surprise to the board, which has been pursuing efforts for more than a decade to obtain more land for sports and physical education purposes. ñ This individual proposed an option the board of education never anticipated, and it came along at an opportune time,î he said. Ciccarelli said he wasnÍ t authorized to release the name of the land owner, a local contractor. If negotiations are successful in obtaining the land at a reasonable cost, Ciccarelli said, the land will provide adequate room to more appropriately accommodate sports and physical education programs. Also, it will avoid an annual conversion of the existing sports field north of the school from a soccer field to a baseball field. It could also host community events as well as provide room for future campus expansion if needed, Ciccarelli added. The existing sports field, along Lake Shore Drive, was upgraded last year in a project that

included installing new drainage pipes to keep it from becoming swampy at times and to prevent it from heaving in frigid winter weather. The project, which cost about $300,000, also included levelling the surface, adding topsoil and planting sod. The school board voted unanimously at a recent meeting to suspend plans to convert this field for the 2014 baseball season while it explores the option of acquiring the land off Horicon Avenue. In the meantime, baseball and softball games will be played either at Camp Echo Lake in Warrensburg, or on opposing teams’ home fields. From 2004 to 2007, the Bolton Central School Board had advanced several proposals to acquire land and develop sports fields, but the initiatives didnÍ t become reality. In 2004, Bolton CentralÍ s school board proposed to purchase a plot of land a considerable distance from the school campus, and develop it into sports fields at a cost of almost $2 million. School District voters rejected the plan. Ciccarelli said that the school boardÍ s facilities committee, comprised of Carl Schoder, Kathy Pfau, and Thomas Herrick, will be making the primary evaluation of whether to pursue acquiring the Horicon Avenue field. He added that he and the board had no intention of exceeding the state property tax cap in purchasing and developing a new field. ñ WeÍ re interested if itÍ s a reasonable, prudent possibility and we come to an agreement that works well for both the school community and the landowner,î he said. ñ This option looks like it would absolutely be a solution to a longstanding problem. The school board will be investigating this to see if itÍ s viable.î

Just recently, StewartÍ s Foundation made a generous donation in the amount of $750, which committee members said this week was very much appreciated. StewartÍ s, which has a convenience store located in Bolton Landing, has supported the efforts of the Health Committee for many years „ assisting the group in helping the children of Bolton. ñ We are extremely grateful for the money and continued support,î a member of the Health Committee said this week. ñ It is through the generosity of BoltonÍ s businesses and individuals that makes our community a caring, wonderful place to live.î

North Country reps need to Why should we do this? be mindful of our needs B


hey may very well have had a point. Last Friday, local teachers and parents stood outside the Glens Falls and Plattsburgh offices of New York State Sen. Elizabeth “Betty” Little to protest a pair of key issues when it comes to education funding within the state. The first issue is easy enough: Why would anyone in the North Country care about funding for charter schools? Those who have come out in support of passing funding to the publicly paid for, but independently run, academies that, according to the state Department of Education, ñ create and sustain excellent educational options for New York State families on behalf of the Board of Regents through high quality charter school authorizing, fair and transparent oversight of all charter schools, and the dissemination of innovative school designs and practices.î Sounds great, but the closest charter school for North Country students is located in Troy or Albany, a one-plus hour drive for our southern-most readers and almost three hours for those by the Canadian border. So there are no charter schools in the district that Little represents, which makes it very easy to understand why teachers and parents are upset with Little voting in favor of bills that would shift funding away from public schools and toward charter institutions. Sen. Little, you represent a district that has no charter schools and therefore should be mindful of the needs of your constituents. Little has been a champion for business rights within the Adirondack Park. She has brought millions in grant funding to towns in desperate need of infrastructure repairs and was on the front lines of Tropical Storm Irene relief. All these things she was praised for, but many families watching their taxes go up and their quality of education go down as teachers lose their jobs are losing their patience when they hear about the glory of charter schools they have no chance of sending their children to. This leads to another issue, one Little has said recently she is trying to help eliminate: the Gap Elimination Adjustment. Under Former Gov. David Paterson, the GEA was used to balance a state budget that was out of control according to Albany lawmakers. It continued under Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who swore the budget would get better. Guess what, it has, as Cuomo touts a budget surplus that will be realized in the next two years. Congratulations! The GEA worked and now we can go back to business as usual. Ehh, not so fast. Both Cuomo and the legislature are dragging their feet on this one, wanting to keep the money that should be going to local public schools away or moving it into charter schools. What does this mean for local schools? Elizabethtown-Lewis Superintendent Scott Osborne said his school has cut all that they can without affecting the quality of education provided to students and the fund balance will shortly dry up. He almost drops to his knees whenever he talks about the desperate need to restore the GEA. Minerva Central School has already started to look at consolidation of high school services with Johnsburg because of the strain put on them by a state budget that gives them less money yet asks them not to raise more than the two percent tax cap. In Glens Falls, the district is looking to fill a gap that is over $3 million while knowing money that is supposed to come to them is being held captive by lawmakers, including herself. We all know people in the North Country feel, at times, their voice is not heard in Albany. Little has been someone who has helped overcome that stigma, and local families are asking for that help again. That is why they are protesting at her offices, because they feel she can affect change for them. So, to all of our local officials at the state level, keep in mind the needs of local students and schools this budget season, help to eliminate the GEA and keep money coming to our school children and not urban charter schools. „

Turning Back the Pages By Jean Hadden

•100 years ago — Feb. 1914• Grain burglars apprehended at last

A tip from an angry woman recently put the sheriff’s office at Lake George on the trail of burglars who for a year are alleged to have been stealing grain and provisions from the store-house of Selleck & Cole near the Delaware and Hudson station at the village. Quick action by Sheriff Bolton and his ever alert deputy, Under Sheriff Mac R. Smith, resulted in the arrest of William Gifford, Lewis and Delbert Combs, Clarence Ross and Rob Roy Lockhart, of Lake George and Gordon Persons of Thurman, who were arraigned before Justice Morris Stanton and held to await the action of the Grand Jury on charges of burglary and larceny. Clarence Ross, whose sister is the wife of William Gifford, was arrested a few days ago for drunkenness. Mrs. Gifford, who does not live with her husband, believed Gifford had caused her brotherÍ s arrest and suspected that the operations of the gang might have become known. Angry at her husband, she approached Under Sheriff Smith and told him that if Gifford had been talking she would give some information about him. She then stated that Gifford and others had been stealing goods from the Selleck & Cole storehouse. Warrants were sworn out for the miscreants and they were rounded up and lodged in the county jail. Search warrants were also secured and at LockhartÍ s place about 3,000 pounds of grain alleged to have been stolen from the storehouse was found. At the boarding place of one of the Combs men, a barrel of flour was found which the boarding mistress stated had come from the Selleck & Cole storehouse. It was ascertained in various places that the men had been selling flour for $2 a barrel and that they had also been selling grain for almost nothing, compared to its actual value. Lockhart, Gifford and Persons are married men and have families. Persons at one time was employed by Selleck & Cole. The value of the goods stolen is estimated at more than $1,000.

Prisoner begs for mercy

William Gifford was recently placed in the Lake George jail on suspicion of heading up a gang which purloined stolen grain from a Lake George storehouse. He is a brother of Whitman Gifford, who a short time ago cut his own throat in the county jail while awaiting the action of the Grand Jury on a charge of stealing a horse. Whitman Gifford died two days later in the Glens Falls Hospital. William Gifford, on being committed to the Warren County Jail, begged Under Sheriff Smith to confine him to another part of the jail than that in which his brother so recently committed his rash act. (Note: The strange story of Whitman Gifford, 40, of Hague, who had been confined in the Lake George Jail until he decided to end it all with a straight razor, was told in this column

in the Nov. 23, 2013 and Jan. 11, 2014 Adirondack Journal. Gifford had stolen a horse from Charles Belden of Horicon while Belden was in jail awaiting trial on a charge of bigamy. After cutting the horseÍ s tail and mane off and trying unsuccessfully to use black paint to cover over the horseÍ s distinctive spots, Gifford headed for the woods with a posse in hot pursuit.)

Fine old man retires

Capt. Lee Harris, 82, of East Lake George, a veteran steamboat man of the Queen of American Lakes is now retired. He has many reminiscences of the old days on Lake George when he was a prominent figure as a steamboat captain and guide for many prominent visitors of that time. Capt. Harris, who does not look his age, is a fine example of the value of right living. He has a sturdy body, an honest heart and a kind and genial disposition and is a remarkably fine specimen of a well-preserved octogenarian. Almost the first steam yacht that plied the waters of Lake George, the Owl, was commanded by Capt. Harris who ran the boat for excursion parties in connection with the Fort William HenryÍ s boat livery. At that time there were only three or four power boats on the lake where there are now something like 700. (Note: The first Fort William Henry Hotel opened in 1855 at the head of Lake George for the enjoyment of rich and affluent guests. Steamers took passengers on daily excursions down the lake and frequent dances and balls were arranged by the management of the lavish old hotel. It burned in 1908 and was immediately rebuilt. It was a golden age.)

Store owner to retire

Richard P. Smith, who has for many years conducted a general store at South Horicon and is the leading citizen of that community, has sold his store building and stock of goods and his handsome residence nearby to Fred H. Duell and on June 1, 1914 will retire from business and remove to Pottersville, where he will make his future home. Dick Smith has been a long-time resident of Horicon and his departure from the town will be regretted by everyone.

The mayor of Bakers Mills

Charles Baker, Mayor of Bakers Mills, is somewhat of a legend in this up-country community, being practically ñ the whole thingî in business and social affairs, a deputy sheriff, horseman and automobile enthusiast. Big and good-natured, witty and a good mixer, he is naturally popular wherever he is known, which is about everywhere in this vicinity.

Coming back home to rest

Attorney Samuel M. West, of Glens Falls, died Saturday at his home at 12 Marion Avenue, of heart failure following pleurisy. The deceased was a veteran of the Civil War and a former resident of Warrensburgh. The body was brought to Warrensburgh to be buried in the village cemetery.

Letters to the Editor

Mrs. William Mosher, 37, of Hudson Falls, died March 10, 1914 of pleuro-pneumonia. She was formerly Miss Anna Needham, daughter of the late Thomas Needham of Thurman and Warrensburgh.

Going home to God

Mrs. Foster Tripp died March 19, 1914. Rachael Tripp was deeply religious and her life was a development of right thinking and doing, which made her character distinctively noble and her household and family duties successful, achieved only as with all humanity „ by self-denial. Internment is in the Landon Hill Cemetery.

The Ides of March

On March 15, 44 B.C., known as the ñ Ides of March,î Roman statesman and general Julius Caesar was stabbed to death in the senate house by a gang of his ñ friends,î the principal assassin being Marcus Junius Brutus, who later committed suicide. This winter seems to want to go away and than abruptly turns to come back to bite us once again. Now in late March we still have plenty of snow and have ran out of places to put it. It continues cold. Farmers are preparing for sugaring but the forecast is bleak. Owing to heavy snow storms, the appropriations voted in Chestertown as payment for clearing roads has been exhausted. Endless snow shoveling has caused kidney trouble among many and aching backs are common. Several wagons are now seen about the village and sleighing has practically ended. Joseph Drake of Chestertown has sold his horse and sleigh to Olney Vanderwerker for $150. (Note: ñ We know that spring is coming, when we see the bird of blue and hear his song in the orchard, a melody old, yet new.î „ written in 1914 by 16 year old Lucille H. Quarry.)

News roundabout

David P. Strang, proprietor of the Rockwell Hotel at Luzerne, filed a petition of bankruptcy in the U.S. court. He owes 56 creditors $17,638 and has $301 in assets. (Note: The Rockwell Hotel, built in 1820, which could accommodate 100 guests by 1874, was rebuilt again after a fire in 1907. It burned again in 1917 but was not rebuilt a second time.) A colt owned by Foster Tripp of Chestertown, stabled with Ray Jenks of Valley Farm, died recently of wounds self-inflicted while suffering from colic. A son was born on March 19, 1914 to Mrs. G.H. Brickwedel of Schroon Lake. Mr. Brickwedel is manager of the Leland House in that place for L.W. and J.A. Emerson of Warrensburgh. The newly wedded pair, Mr. and Mrs. Lionel Hitchcock of Bakers Mills, attended religious services March 20, 1914 at Martin HitchcockÍ s house. Readers are welcome to contact Adirondack Journal correspondent Jean Hadden at or 623-2210.

News Briefs

All opinions on climate change should be heard To the Editor: Stephen DannaÍ s comments regarding the Feb. 21 Op-Ed in the Post-Star by Charles Krauthammer are astounding. He asserts that the media should ñ not allow the science of climate change to be compromised by opinion pieces of misinformed, scientifically illiterate writers.î I would like to remind Mr. Danna that we do not live in a third-world country run by a dictator who controls the media „ this is America. We can debate the so called ñ scienceî of climate change freely. His assertions are far more dangerous than climate change will ever be to our planet. John Nelson Pottersville

Seeking historical information To the Adirondaxk Journal: In 1917 the 80-acre Ross Lake, appeared for the first time. It was near Sodom, N.Y. in the Town of Johnsburg. Ellsworth Ross, with financial help from his brother, Hosea, built the large dam with laid up stone slabs and cobble fill in 1916. The Ross brothers were establishing a “resort” for fishing and hunting. A news article at the time called it the ñ New Adirondack Gem.î The Ross Family originally settled in that place a few years after the Revolutionary War. Some of the other male names in the family were: Samuel Ross, Hiram, Willard, Taylor, and William. I am gathering information and pictures about the Ross Farm, the project of building the dam and artificial lake and what happened after the lake was created, including some of the tragedies within the members of the Ross Family. If anyone can help this project with information, pictures or letters related to any of this, please call me, I live in Glens Falls. I am a member of the large family that in recent years have owned the lake, now called Windover Lake, and adjacent property. My phone number is 518793-6922, and my name is Herb Hudnut. Call anytime and leave a message if I am not available. I have great respect for what the Ross Family accomplished. Sharing historical information would be a pleasure. Herb Hudnut, Glens Falls

Breakfast serves up socializing as well as sustenance

CHESTERTOWN „ A dozen or so teachers of North Warren Central School found themselves in a role quite different than their routine on Saturday March 15, as they circulated between tables in the school cafeteria serving pancakes, sausage, juice and coffee to students and their parents „ as well as others in the area community. The event, which provided as much socializing as nutrition, was the seventh annual Community Pancake Breakfast sponsored by the North Warren Teachers Association. Not only did the parents and public get to meet up with many North Warren teachers and staffers, but they had the opportunity to meet the new Superintendent of Schools, Margaret ñ Pegî Brady, who joined the district just months ago. Brady sat down and talked about the school and curriculum topics with various parents as they ate their breakfast. Assisting with this yearÍ s event were North

Warren faculty and staff members Jessica Birkholz, Kat Bauer, Cathy Casler, Erica Leonard, Jule Marinelli, Stacy Cooper, Deanne Peters, Judy Benway, Eric Bott, Jeff Dibble, Mike Therio, Sue Therio, Debra Varsames, Rick Mahlstedt, Jen Lail and Josh Gifford. Also assisting were Holley Bedell, Tammy Harvey, Cheryl Erikson, Tom Harvey, Jean Kubaryk, Ellen Davis and Lori Korniak. The event included attendees bringing nonperishable food to be given to the local food pantry. By the morningÍ s end, an impressive array of food piled up in the hallway.

WCS community dinner a success

The free Community Spaghetti Dinner held at Warrensburg Elementary School surpassed expectations, with a heavy turnout „ and local citizens enjoying socializing as well as sharing conversations with their childrenÍ s teachers. A total of 210 people were served at the event. Parents lined up with their children in the hallway outside the cafeteria and were served by faculty and staff at the school. Elementary school faculty members worked at the event, exemplifying volunteerism in action, while enhancing the bond between the school staff and community residents. various members of the faculty and staff of Warrensburg Central donated the food and supplies Among the instructors greeting the students and their family members was Sixth Grade teacher Dave Beck, who served desserts and beverages, and clearing plates when necessary. The idea for the dinner was generated by the Elementary School School Improvement Team team, which decided to sponsor an enjoyable event for the community to thank the community-at-large for continuing support of the school, according to WCS Elementary Principal Amy Langworthy. She added that this time of year a community dinner would be particularly appreciated. The members of this SITE team thought a spaghetti dinner would be a good time of year for such an event.

Employees of Aramark, the company that manages the cafeteria operation, assisted with the cooking. Rita Lang attended this event with her two young children, and she said with a spontaneous smile that she had a great time „ and she particularly enjoyed the experience eating in the school cafeteria with her children, Francesca, 8 and Louis, 6. ñ It was fun socializing with teachers, parents and grandparents of students „ and people IÍ d only see under other circumstances.

Property rights group to celebrate 20th anniversary By Thom Randall STONY CREEK „ A locally based organization that crusades for Constitutional principles nationally is celebrating its 20th anniversary celebration soon. The Property Rights Foundation of America, operating out of Stony Creek, will observe its two decades in existence with a dinner Tuesday evening, April 8 at The Century House in Latham. The public is invited to attend. The dinner, which begins at 6 p.m., is pre-

ceded by a social hour at 5 p.m. Guest speaker is William Perry Pendley, President of Mountain States Legal Foundation. He is scheduled to give the address ñ Defending Freedom in an Anti-Constitutional Era.î PendleyÍ s Foundation, based in suburban Denver, Col. recently won a court victory in defending private oil, gas and mineral extraction rights in the Allegheny National Forest from non-jurisdictional federal regulation. Also, In February PendleyÍ s foundation launched a lawsuit by Mountain States Legal Foundation against Gov. Cuomo on behalf of

a coalition of 70,000 landowners who are waiting nearly six years for the Governor to release final regulations to permit landowners to use their land for energy production from the deep Marcellus Shale. In March, the U.S. Supreme Court court ruled in favor of the Mountain States Legal Foundation in its mission to assure that a Wyoming private property owner received just compensation when the government didnÍ t recognize his property rights when an abandoned rail line was converted into a biking and pedestrian trail. Carol LaGrasse of Stony Creek, president of

adding a whiskey distillery. The project is expected to take approximately 5 years and $5 million to complete. Carr said said expects his brewing and bottling capacities to triple and produce 35,000 barrels of beer a year, He also plans to increase his staff size three-fold, adding a variety of positions.

PRFA said her foundation was pleased to host Pendley at her groupÍ s anniversary dinner. ñ WeÍ ll be giving William Pendley a heroÍ s welcome,î she said. The PRFA has played a leading role in Adirondack and New York property rights issues, as well as nationwide. Advance reservations to the anniversary dinner are $25, payable to the Property Rights Foundation of America, P.O. Box 75, Stony Creek, NY 12878. For details or reservations, contact LaGrasse at 696-5748 or The Century House is located at 997 New Loudon Road, Rte. 9, in Latham.

Lake George Mayor Robert Blais said he was pleased to hear about the development, which would be a year-round attraction, provide vital jobs and be an aesthetically pleasing addition to the village. ñ Mr. CarrÍ s brewery and his labels publicize Lake George all throughout the Northeast,î Blais said. ñ This is exactly the type of development we need in our community.î One of the most exciting aspects of the expansion, Blais added, will be the High Peaks Distillery that will produce whiskey and rye under the brand name Cloudsplitter. The distillery is something Carr has been planning for more than eight years. In recent years, heÍ s collaborated with other distilleries, sharing resources to help plan the project. Carr said he believes the distillery will be a popular attraction. ñ Governor Cuomo and the Commissioner of the State Liquor Authority Jeanique Greene have aided us in changing laws that previously didnÍ t allow breweries to include distilleries,î said Carr. ñ If youÍ re making beer, youÍ re about halfway to making malt whiskey.î The distillery will be built behind a glass wall facing Route 9, allowing people passing by to witness the distilling process in progress. Plans call for tours to be conducted of both the distillery and the brewery. The facility is to include a tasting room and a retail outlet and produce approximately 5,000 cases of spirits a year. Carr said his development plans call for providing space for catered events, whether itÍ s a wedding rehearsal dinner, an anniversary celebration, or a public Oktoberfest event „ which CarrÍ s pub now hosts each fall. ñ With the potential to accommodate 300 people, we expect the space to be used for concerts, rehearsal dinners and even Oktoberfest.î The brewery not only makes beer, but it also manufactures a variety of cane-sugar sodas. Plans call for expanding the breweryÍ s entire line of products to boost the national and international interest it already has generated. ñ Lake George is a beautiful place as any,î said Carr, ñ It makes sense to expand on a locally made product.î OTB will continue to operate at the location until it secures a new location, Carr said.

and sheep and sample their gourmet cheese were impressed with the restoration of the historic barn „ although none took home any of the free kittens offered for adoption by the enterpriseÍ s animal sanctuary, Nettle Meadow co-owner Sheila Flanagan said. Irv West of Peru Llama Farm welcomed a family showing up for llama kisses for the third year. MartinÍ s Lumber also welcomed guests from prior years, crediting the annual offering of snickerdoodles which Wini Martin and her grandson Miles had baked. Also considered a draw were the beading demonstrations and Gary MartinÍ s blacksmith forge. Traveling farthest to attend maple days was the Perry family, Floridians on vacation in New York City who learned of Thurman Maple Days through the Warren County Tourism website. Wini Martin presented the Perrys with a ceremonial wooden ñ Key to Thurmanî in recognition of their long trek. Randy Galusha of Toad Hill Maple Farm reported a large number of visitors, perhaps setting a record. ñ Despite setbacks of continuing cold weather and being shorthanded, we managed to have one of our best weekends ever,î Galusha said. ñ Our attendance and sales were both great.î Thurman Maple DaysÍ free activities continue from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday March 29 and Sunday March 30, with pancake breakfasts served at Valley Road Maple Farm from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m daily.

From page 1 ñ ItÍ s the governmentÍ s job to defend our rights and theyÍ re acting well beyond their original scope. Federal agencies are being used as a weapon against the people,î he said, citing the recent IRS and NSA scandals. ñ Something was off-track and needed to be righted „ and that’s why I’m running for office.”


Gilbert, who demonstrated an easygoing air and showcased little of the fiery rhetoric that has been a hallmark of the Tea Party movement to which he is aligned, said the federal government should limit themselves to the 18 enumerated powers listed in the Constitution. ñ Just because something needs or should be done, doesnÍ t mean it needs to be done by bureaucrats „ it can be handled by state or local governments,î he said. ñ There are four levels of government between from where IÍ m sitting and the federal level. Ninety-five percent of governance should come from people you can walk down the street to talk to.î Gilbert, a father of two young children, cited the controversial education initiative Common Core as an example of government overreach. ñ The federal government should not be involved in education „ the Department of Education, which isnÍ t in the Constitution, sucks up millions of dollars just running itself. Every single one of those dollars come from the states and their policies are derived from special interest groups imposing what they hope will become national standards.î Gilbert said he didnÍ t want his four year-old son Ethan, named for his cousin Ethan Allen, the war hero who helped capture the Fort Ticonderoga from the British in 1775, to be subjected to federal mandates, including President ObamaÍ s proposals to standardize early education for pre-schoolers and the First LadyÍ s push for a healthier citizenry. ñ I think I can handle what my daughter can eat for lunch,î he said, referring to Mackenzie, who is six.


Gilbert said while he considers himself a conservationist and doesnÍ t want to see the environment degraded more than anyone else „ he commented on the beauty of the pond on his 131 acres and the turkeys and deer clambering around it „ the White House, he said, is burning the candle at both ends when it comes to charting the nationÍ s energy policies. On one hand, he said, you have green advocates who are against any form of fossil fuel. ñ ItÍ s on their agenda to push green energy systems that are not economically viable,î he said. ñ The federal government pumps taxpayer money into them and they fail, like Solyndra,î he said, citing the thin-film solar cell manufacturer that received a halfbillion dollar loan guarantee by the Department of Energy before going bankrupt and shutting down in 2011 because it was unable to compete against more traditional solar cell technology.

Gilbert said the federal government makes existing energy sources „ like coal, for example „ so expensive through excessive taxation, it makes the green systems more attractive. But those systems exist solely on government subsidies from the EPA, he said, and prices rise when coal plants are closed as a result before the total energy supply is then diminished. ñ IÍ m all for green energy once it becomes viable,î he said. ñ But let the free market innovate first and when they get on the same playing field as fossil fuels, then it’s time to rock and roll.”


Gilbert said thereÍ s only a few things the federal government can really do to create jobs. First, he said, is reaching the state of energy independence. As the districtÍ s representative, Gilbert said heÍ d approve permits and projects like the Keystone Pipeline that would lower energy prices. ñ This would make everything cheaper and increase the amount of disposable income, something that would spur economic activity „ a rising tide lifts all boats,î he said, echoing ReaganÍ s trickle-down theory. Another way to encourage job creation, he said, would be to facilitate more economic activity with Canada through increased trade. Gilbert said the country’s fiscal policies, namely the high levels of corporate tax, discourage investment and he would advocate for strong incentives to bring investment back to American shores by eliminating corporate income taxes for companies who decide to move their operations from overseas back to their native turf. ñ Our corporate income tax is the highest in the world and we wonder why companies are leaving,î he said. ñ The overall answer is to get the government out of the market. If you unleash America’s entrepreneurial spirit, it’ll open the floodgates to creating wealth and economic expansion. But the government itself cannot create jobs.î Gilbert said Americans have been conditioned to depend too much on political promises. ñ We need to be more self-reliant,î he said. ñ The American dream is still out there „ we just have to go for it. DonÍ t wait for a politician to deliver it to you.î


Gilbert is the only candidate in the race who has served in the military. His resume describes a quarter-century of service, including a stint as a Battalion Intelligence Staff Officer with the 10th Mountain Division at Fort Drum in the late-1990s and as a Commander in the 203rd Military Intelligence BattalionÍ s C-Company, a unit that was assigned as the reconnaissance unit in support of the Iraq Survey Group in the search for WMDs in Iraq. ñ I conducted over 200 intelligence raids and recon missions throughout Iraq and we captured over 500 tons of enemy weapons and other materiel of military significance,” he said. “It was the largest repatriation of enemy weapons since World War II.î Gilbert said he is a strong advocate of national defense and disagrees with Defense Secretary Chuck HagelÍ s proposal last

Adirondack Journal - 15 month to slim down the countryÍ s armed forces. ñ I come from a long proud family that was found in every conflict that America has ever been involved in.” Citing Al-QaedaÍ s continued territorial creep, the meddling of Iran in Syria and Iraq, the current situation in Ukraine and Russia and ChinaÍ s rise as a global competitor, one that has been increasingly assertive in seeking to secure natural resources and global mineral rights, Gilbert said now is not the time to downsize and ñ project weaknessî across the world. ñ The rapid deployment forces at Fort Drum are only found in a few places in the army,î he said. ñ Only two other divisions can do what the 10th does and we need to maintain a rapid, vibrant military across all of our branches.î ñ The world is still a very dangerous place and threats are more viable today than ever.î


“I will not be satisfied with anything short of a full repeal,” said Gilbert on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Gilbert said Obamacare is a ñ job killerî and a ñ trumped-up response to a pre-fabricated crisisî that will cost 2.3 million fulltime jobs by the time of its full implementation in 2020 and will eventually lead to rationed healthcare. ñ ItÍ s driving up costs,î he said. ñ The government is paying people to buy insurance and paying people to sell it.î The candidate said there are free market answers to healthcare, including tort reform that would reduce the threat of frivolous lawsuits that drive up costs.

Guns, Constitutional rights

ñ The Second Amendment is no more important than the rest of them,î said Gilbert before ticking off a list of the pro-gun organizations to which he belongs. “You’ll find no stronger advocate than I am.î Gilbert said the Second Amendment was put in place so the public can defend the others, from the first — protection of speech, religion and the press — to the fifth, which lays out legal protections, including the right to due process. ñ The government canÍ t take those rights away because they didnÍ t give them to us,î said Gilbert, returning to a frequent talking point during the half-hour long interview. ñ All of those rights and powers are limited: we are the sovereign masters of government „ ï we the peopleÍ impose those limits on the government that very clearly establish the relationship between the government and its citizens.î Gilbert said course correction for the country will not be a quick process. “We have to first to stop the decline, then we can think about recovery. But the government is not royalty and we are not serfs „ and thatÍ s what my campaign is about,î he said. Gilbert is slated to face challengers Matt Doheny and Elise Stefanik for the Republican nomination on June 24. On the Democratic side, filmmaker Aaron Woolf and Steven Burke, a Macomb town board member in St. Lawrence County, are running for their partyÍ s nomination. Glens Falls-based baker Matt Funciello and anti-cancer activist Don Hassig are vying for the Green PartyÍ s support.
