NY funds to boost railroad corridor projects



Dance marathon set at school PAGE 4

By Andy Flynn

IN GLENS FALLS NORTH CREEK — Projects along the First Wilderness Heritage Corridor — from Saratoga Springs to North Creek — will get a financial boost this year after receiving a grant from the New York State Regional Economic Development Council initiative. This latest round of funding will help Warren County planners bolster their marketing efforts along the Hudson River and former Delaware & Hudson Railway corridor by investing in infrastructure projects in local communities. “What we’re trying to do is just showcase a way of life,” said Wayne LaMothe, director of the Warren County Department of Planning and Community Development, which is in charge of promoting the 62-mile corridor to the traveling public.

LG trustees to consider high-rise plan which is expected to recommend changes to the present zoning ordinances to allow taller buildings along the west side of Canada Street — as well as the construction of parking garages. The meeting is to include a presentation by Elan Planning of Saratoga Springs, consultant to the village for the tentative proposed zoning changes. The trustees will be discussing the

proposals — and if they endorse the changes, they’ll be setting a series of public hearings on the ordinance amendments. The temporary Zoning Committee was appointed by the village Board of Trustees this past year after developer Dave Kenny proposed a five-story hotel on Canada Street, which sparked controversy.

Stec’s son Peter led the Pledge of Allegiance, voicing it without hesitation. Stec’s wife Hilary, his parents George and Elsie Stec stood beside him as he was sworn in — a ceremony that was concluded with lengthy applause.

This year marks Warren County’s Bicentennial and big things are brewing in North Warren. Within the towns of Chester, and Horicon the communities of Chestertown, Brant Lake, Pottersville, Adirondack, Darrowsville, Igerna, Starbuckville and Riparius are banding together to celebrate our 200th birthday. The Bicentennial committees that make up “Team North Warren” are using this opportunity to give our little slice of the Adirondacks it’s own brand. We call it “Growing Together”. As North Warren residents, we are working together on this project and “growing together” in our communities. And as we grow, our local businesses and opportunities grow as well.

Instead of just one day of celebration, we are showcasing our area throughout the year. Every week starting in January and continuing throughout the winter and summer months up to the Bicentennial celebration in August, We’ll be sharing stories celebrating our past, present and future. In weekly articles in this newspaper we’ll tell you about interesting people, places and things that help make up this place we call home. There will also be articles about the happenings of the past that are highly interesting accounts of events gone by. You can’t fully appreciate the present and future without knowing our past. There will be a lot to look forward to reading about over the next several months.


The finale will be the biggest celebration this area’s seen in recent history on Saturday August 24th. There will be a huge parade followed by a day of music, exhibits, games for the kids and plenty of food. The day ends with a spectacular fireworks display over the skies of Pottersville.

WCS Marathon Dance to involve community By Thom Randall WARRENSBURG — For two years, local students have annually held a night-long celebration of life, music, and outreach to others known as the Warrensburg High School Marathon Dance. The annual event follows the tradition of the South Glens Falls High School Marathon Dance that's raised $3.15 million for various charities in its 35+ years of existence. This past year, South Glens Falls students rocked the house as they filled their gym and raised $395,352 from sponsors throughout the region. The Marathon Dance of Warrensburg High, with the school’s smaller enrollment and remote location, is held on an entirely different scale — yet the enthusiasm of students and community members is unsurpassed. The Warrensburg’s 2013 Marathon Dance, in which students raise money through sponsorships, is set for noon until midnight Saturday, Jan. 12 in the high school gymnasium. The event features a raffle of gift baskets, gift certificates and such offerings as golf and ski packages. The public is welcome to come to the marathon event from noon to 8 a.m. and re-

view the array of raffle packages on display in the high school cafeteria. The drawing for the raffle items will be held at 8 p.m., but it is not necessary to be present to win. The dance is open to students in grades six through 12 who sign up in advance. Sixth graders must have a permission slip, and an adult must accompany them at the event. Students from other schools may attend — as guests of WCS students — as long as they have a permission slip from a school authority and a parent. To participate, students in grades seven through 12 must have $50 in sponsorships or donations. For sixth graders, the amount is $25, Event advisor Marlene DeLongis said, acknowledging that although many people are facing economic stresses, the Warrensburg marathon attendees will be meeting the challenge of fundraising. “We know times are tough, but it’s important to continue because there are a lot of people who need help, including those with medical issues,” she said. “We’ve asked the kids to be creative in their fundraising.” The top fundraisers among the students will win prizes. All those participating receive a WCS Marathon Dance T-shirt, designed by a team of high school art students. Andy Pratt of Bolton, noted for how he inspires a crowd, will be returning as deejay for this year's marathon. Students will be

High-rise plan from page 1 Since the high-rise hotel proposal surfaced, village Mayor Robert Blais has suggested that changes were appropriate to boost the local commercial scene. He observed that over the past three years, the village’s assessed valuation has declined and several commercial buildings were vacant this season. With the village only hosting one major development project in the last ten years, he and the trustees sought to determine village zoning could be changed to sparking lo-

encouraged to participate in air-band competitions, relays and games. The youths will also have the opportunity to take amusing self-portraits in a concession provided by Saratoga Photobooth. The charities to receive help this year — whether they are organizations or individuals — hadn’t been chosen as of Jan. 1. A committee of students will be making that decision by the end of this week, DeLongis said. About 110 students, most from Warrensburg High, have signed up for the event, DeLongis said, remarking that the students and adults planning the event are impressed already with the generosity of area businesses, who have donated cash as well as goods and services for the auctions and raffles. DeLongis said the marathon dance offered vital life-lessons to the students. "It’s a good opportunity for our kids kids to learn about giving back and doing good things for their community,” she said.

Fundraisers set to boost WCS Marathon Dance WARRENSBURG — Local students will be getting their hair shorn in public and others will be watching a movie this weekend to boost receipts of the annual Warrensburg High School Marathon Dance.

cal prosperity in upcoming years. Many people, however, have objected to the idea of tall hotels or other buildings in the center of the village, noting structures that high would block lake views for many residents; prevent sunlight from shining on the village’s main thoroughfare; and permanently change the character of the resort town. The current zoning law doesn’t accommodate parking garages, and limits the height of buildings to three stories and 40 feet. The committee is expected to recommend allowing five- or six-story buildings on the west side of Canada St. from McGillis Avenue to Mountain Drive and four-

Stylists from Heidiʼs Clip joint of Warrensburg will be holding a Cut-a-Thon from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, Jan. 4 in the high school gymnasium lobby to benefit the charities supported by the Marathon Dance . The price is $10 per haircut, and proceeds go to the charity recipients. Meanwhile, Family Movie night — “Ice Age: Continental Drift” is to be held simultaneously in the Elementary School to benefit the cause. Thereʼs a $5 fee which includes a hot dog and drink — Parents must accompany the youngsters. These two events cap off various fundraising efforts held over several months by the two schools. Anyone in the community who wishes to make a monetary donation to the marathon can mail a check to Warrensburg Central School, Attn: Darlene Gordon, 103 Schroon River Road, Warrensburg, NY 12885. Marathon organizers are also looking for donations of bottled water and snacks or baked goods for the marathon dancers. Donations can be dropped off at the main office at the high school prior to the marathon, or at the cafeteria by noon on Jan. 12, the day of the event. Anyone seeking to donate a gift basket for the marathon dance raffle should contact Donna Engle at 623-3453. Those with questions are encouraged to contact Marlene DeLongis at 6234917.

story buildings on the west side of Canada St. from McGillis Avenue south to Mohican St. The committee did not reach unanimity in its determining its recommendations, however. Several of the committee members, as well as the many citizens, have suggested that tall buildings be limited to the perimeter of the village, or outside the village boundaries, in the town of Lake George. A three-dimensional interactive depiction of the effect of the proposed village zoning changes is available on the village’s website:

Donate to ‘Heat Our Neighbor’ To help local families facing hardship in paying their home heating bills, the Bolton Landing Chamber of Commerce has sponsored the “Heat our Neighbor” program for the last seven years. Realizing that energy costs have soared, Chamber officers have concentrated on raising money for the fund. This week they said they deeply appreciate to those that contributed this year to the fund that helps Bolton households pay their home energy expenses.

Adirondack Journal Editorial

Welcome 2013! W

ith the Mayan Calendar ending on Dec. 21, 2012, for some, the idea we would all still be here for the year 2013 was unthinkable. But if you are reading this, then it is proof we made it. So happy 2013 — everyone deserves a pat on the back for making it through a very interesting year. We witnessed our federal politicians maneuvering to avoid the fiscal cliff following a heated election that nearly divided the country, countless fatalities to senseless murder-suicides that no one will ever be able to make sense of; the voice behind the iconic red friend Elmo being denounced as a sex offender, and people are still facing a very uncertain economy. Now that the champagne and sparkling grape juice have gone flat, the midnight resolutions have been broken or kept it is time for a fresh start. Even without the drop of an extravagant ball in Times Square people can still mark the beginning of a new phase, or the end of a bad habit to improve their lives. According to a study by, the typical new years resolutions include: • Drink less alcohol • Eat healthy food • Get a better education • Get a better job • Get fit • Lose weight • Manage debt • Manage stress • Quit smoking • Reduce, reuse, and recycle • Save money • Take a trip • Volunteer to help others As the cliche goes, every journey begins with a single step. Accomplishing goals and regaining happiness and fulfillment in your life can be achieved in the same way. To loose those extra pounds get out and start a new morning routine of walking to

the coffee shop. To drink or smoke less the steps to breaking the habits and addictions can be deep rooted and tricky. Find what works for you. Find a way to take your mind off of it and talk to people who have gone through it before. Chances are you aren’t the first to have troubles, so it is alright to ask for help. Our social habits and associations, as much as our eating, drinking, and exercise patterns, can be just as much an anchor against progress. If the friends you have surrounded yourself with for years seem to be standing still while you try to move forward it’s okay to separate yourself from them. In life, not everything and everyone we attach ourselves to should be permanent attachments. Don’t be afraid to go to new places and don’t be afraid to learn new things. The symbolism behind the new year is in the title: new. Human beings are forever growing and you need to create a life for yourself to facilitate growth. Looking back again there were many positives to 2012. Nationally our president was elected to serve a second term, the US teams and athletes won 104 metals during the Summer Olympics in London. Regionally an Elizabethtown youth, Connor Marvin, who suffered from a rare inherited heart condition, received a heart transplant and a new chance at life. While there is no Mayan calendar extending into 2013, the year is sure to bring plenty of positives — just as it is sure to unfortunately have its negatives.

What does $6 billion buy?


he financial results are now in from the recent 2012 federal election. We've just participated in the most expensive election in U.S. history. Over $6 billion was spent by federal campaigns, super PACs, political nonprofits and the party committees. Here is the split out of how the money was spent according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Presidential Candidates.... $1,377,000,000 House Candidates............. $1,010,000,000 Senate Candidates............ $720,000,000 Party Committees............... $1,800,000,000 Outside Groups................... $1,210,000,000 What troubles me is how so much money can be spent competing for these prized positions and yet once in office so little of the people’s business ever seems to be accomplished. Because of our early production deadlines for the New Years holiday I’m drafting this column five days before we are scheduled to go over the fiscal cliff. I can only hope that when you read this column the cliff has been somehow avoided, be it a last minute agreement or perhaps they get it done with a few hours to spare. Unfortunately I’m not optimistic they will get a deal done. They know what needs to be done but neither side is willing to give any ground and it appears both think the cliff will provide them cover from their constituents. Prior to the Christmas holiday congressional Republicans were calling out the President and Democratically controlled Senate for not putting forth a plan to avoid the cliff. Now that the President has returned from Hawaii and the US Senate has been reconvened by Sen. Harry Reid they are dishing it back out to the Republicans who will not return until the weekend. Wouldn’t you think these masterful campaigners who’ve raised so much money and command so much power

could do more than play childish games trying to show each other up and some Dan Alexander how in their Thoughts from self cenBehind the Pressline tered approach think that we buy these foolish antics? Well, the sad reality is most of us fall into lock step behind our party affiliation. We let them play these games instead of demanding greater accountability. In a recent Reuters Poll 27 percent of those polled blame Republicans, 16 percent blamed the President, 6 percent blame the Democrats and only 31 percent blame the whole bunch for the fiscal cliff debacle. With numbers like that is it any wonder our national elected officials have found it easy to play politics instead of solving problems? They have us exactly where they want us. We give them everything they want. We treat them like royalty. We are so gracious when they bring home our tax dollars and act as if it’s manna from heaven. As a nation we should be so overwhelmingly outraged that we find our nation in this position. When it’s their election or re-election at stake these folks demonstrate they know how to get down to business and work tirelessly. When it is the people’s business or needs, they somehow can’t get out of each others way. We have no one to blame but the person in the mirror and until we refuse to put any money into their re-elections nothing will really change. If we want real change let’s make the funds spent in the 2016 election the least expensive election in U.S. history. Dan Alexander is owner and publisher of Denton Publications. He may be reached at

Steep tax hike •100 Years Ago - January, 1913• Powder flares up, injures clerk

Lewis G. Hamilton, a clerk in the John G. Hunt’s Hardware store in Warrensburgh, was a victim of a New Year ’s flare-up Jan. 1, 1913 which nearly put him out of business. In sweeping up the store in the morning, he cleaned up a small quantity of powder which had been spilled when a sale was made earlier and taking up a dust pan with the sweepings, he threw the contents on the ash pile back of the store. Later, he had occasion to burn some loose papers and he touched a lighted match to a scrap of paper which came in contact with the powder. There was a blinding flash and a sheet of flame leaped up into the young man’s face burning him severely. He was taken at once to Dr. Goodman’s office where his wounds were dressed. The burns were exceedingly painful but it is believed that they will not leave a scar. His eyes were not injured. (Note: Hunt’s store was in the north end of the Main St. building that today houses Marco Polo’s Pizza.)

Sad waste of life Silas McCasland, a young man who had just reached his majority, was convicted at Plattsburgh of manslaughter in the second degree for killing Charles Facto in a drunken brawl at Bedford on Aug. 3, 1912. He was given an indefinite sentence in the Elmira Reformatory. McCasland is said to be suffering from incipient tuberculosis and it was deemed inadvisable to sentence him to the regular prison, which by reason of the close confinement would have been equivalent to a death sentence.

Crazy weather prevails Friday Jan. 3, 1913 was a day of remarkable weather. In the afternoon there was an electrical storm of summertime proportions. The thunder was heavy and the lightning sharp. At 4 o’clock this subsided and the sun

came out warming the atmosphere to almost spring like heat. Than came a wind, starting with a breeze and increasing into a gale which swept along at the rate of 50 miles per hour and did considerable damage in various parts of the town. (No: It must have been on a day like this in 1606 that Shakespeare wrote, “So foul and fair a day I have not seen.”) A snow storm came on Tuesday Jan. 7, 1913 followed by sleet and a freeze-up which made fairly good sleighing and most of the wheeled vehicles have been laid up for the winter. On Jan. 8, 1913 the Chester stage made its first trip of the season on runners. (Note: My late mother-in-law, Ida Mae Hadden, who was born in 1877, used to tell me about what winters in Warrensburgh were like in the old days when automobiles and bicycles were “put up” during the snow season. If a person needed to go some where, they usually walked. Ida walked to the Woolen Mill and later to the Shirt Factory to work for 50 years. People, especially single ladies, used to move in with relatives or sometimes board in other people’s homes because of the work and expense of heat. There must have been quite a smoke cloud hanging over the town in the winter of 1913 where in nearly every house they were either burning wood or coal.)

Johnsburgh’s First Pond renamed The Chatiemac Lake Club, at their regular meeting in Glens Falls, decided to ask the State Conservation Commission to change the name of First Pond in the town of Johnsburgh to Chatiemac Lake, as it is now known locally. The club owns a large tract of land about the lake and maintains a fine clubhouse there and fishing grounds. It is their custom to place 5,000 fingerling trout in the lake each year.

Bed tax grants to be allocated The Thurman Occupancy Tax Committee met Dec. 21 to discuss appropriations of money for various events proposed by groups and individuals who submitted budgets and grant requests. The committee’s recommendations are passed onto the town board, which determines grant amounts. The Town of Thurman received $30,000 in 2013 occupancy tax receipts, which is used to promote tourism. The committee proposed allocating $20,000 of the bed tax receipts as follows: Thurman Summer Concert Series, $11,640; Thurman Bicentennial Celebration, $5,620; Publicity, $2,200; other related expenses, $540; leaving $10,000 for Events such as Maple Days, Jack Wax Party, Thurman Fall Farm Tour, Town Wide Sale, Christmas Bazaar, and a new event to be named Wilderness Corridor Showcase.

Thurman’s roots run deep Several months ago I reported on the founding of Thurman, which according to Warren County Historical Society was the original name of the town. Between 1813 and 1853 it in fact was named Athol. In 1813 Warren County was established and the name came from Revolutionary War patriot and hero of the Battle at Bunker Hill, General Joseph Warren. In 1799 the Town of Bolton and Chester were formed from Thurman, and 1805 the Town of Johnsburg was formed also from Thurman. In 1810 the Town of Lake George (known as Caldwell until 1963) was formed from three neighboring towns, Bolton, Thurman and Queensbury. In 1819 the first building housing the Court house, jail and clerk’s office was constructed with Lake George as the county seat.

Townfolk to celebrate heritage Those interested in being part of history in the making will not want to miss Thurman’s festivities on June 15 celebrating Warren County’s Bicentennial. That event is to include a parade, a barbecue and fireworks. Anyone interested in creating a float or participating in the parade should contact town supervisor Evelyn Wood at the town hall at: 623-9649.

Over the fence Town residents should be aware that the winter months routinely bring inclement weather conditions — and that during storms, Meals on Wheels does not transport hot meals. So, perhaps our readers, when heavy snowstorms hit us, could drop by their neighbors, and prepare them a warm cup of tea, or bring them a dish of soup or sandwich from

husband was also seriously ill with the same disease and he died the night of Jan. 8, 1913. Norman Bennett was 78 years old and a veteran of the Civil War. Mrs. Bennett, who was Jane Gregory before marriage, was a native of the town of Horicon and her body was taken there for burial. The couple is survived by a son, Charles L. Bennett and two daughters, Mrs. Charles Washburn and Mrs. Richard Dutcher. Funeral arrangements for Mr. Bennett have not yet been completed.

Gone from Thurman Susan Kenyon, wife of Isaac P. Trotter, died Dec. 28, 1912 at her home in Cresco, Iowa. The deceased was born in Thurman Dec. 1, 1836 and her early life was spent in that town where she married John Farmham, who was a Union soldier and died in the Civil War. Later on, Mrs. Farmham was a resident of Wevertown where she made her home with her sister, Mrs. C.W. Noble. In Nov. 1872 she was married to Mr. Trotter and went to live in Cresco where she remained until her death. She was the sister of Henry B. Kenyon and Nathaniel Kenyon. The deceased was a woman of rare virtues and ability and was highly respected by all who knew her.

Working in the woods Lumbermen in Athol have their logs and pulp wood all cut and skidded and are now waiting for the snow to come. Gailon Swanson of Knowelhurst, while at work rolling hemlock logs for Wilbur Perkins at West Stony Creek, got caught under a log on the skid way and had one leg broken below the knee. One bone was broken twice and the other once. He was attended by Dr. Thompson. Kenneth Duell of Horicon fell on the ice and cut his head quite badly. Caleb Duell, John Pratt and Stephen Baker went to The Glen to work in the lumber woods. Lyman Wood of West Stony Creek has a large force of men working on his lumber job on the J. Cabel place near Harrisburgh.

home. January often delivers below-zero temperatures; so residents should make sure they plug in their heat tape, or make sure their pipes are adequately insulated — or just leave the cold water faucet dripping to ensure you are not stuck with frozen pipes.

Apply for tax relief! Applications for the state School Tax Relief (STAR) program are now available at the Thurman Town Hall. The deadline for completed applications is March 1. This program provides homeowners with two types of partial exemptions from school property taxes: Basic STAR is available for owner-occupied, primary residences where the resident owner and spouse’s income is less than $500,000, it exempts the first $30,000 of the full value of a home from school taxes. Enhanced STAR provides an increased benefit for the primary residences of citizens 65 and older with qualifying incomes, and exempts the first $63,300 of the full value of a home from school taxes. This exemption level was raised this year from $62,200. STAR exemptions apply only to school district taxes. They don't apply to property taxes for other jurisdictions, such as counties, towns.

The Warrensburg PTSA is seeking donations to build a new playground at the Warrensburg Elementary School. The current K-3 playground is in serious need of reconstruction, as it does not meet federal requirements for children with mobility issues. The playground equipment is quite pricey, but provide vital exercise to youngsters still building their motor skills. Members of the PTSA have been visiting businesses seeking donations in the form of cash, merchandise or gift certificates. The gift certificates or items will be auctioned off

Ralph M. Brown, Tax Collector, will be collecting taxes at various locations around Warrensburgh this month. The tax burden will be higher this year and a total of $18,736.37 must be taken in order to balance the books, according to Supervisor Milton N. Eldridge. Last year the town showed a deficit of $304 and $350 must be raised by taxation to pay the yearly salary of the road commissioner whose rate this year has been raised to $468. (Note: According to the 1910 census, there were 2,385 citizens in Warrensburgh to share this tax increase.)

Little newcomers On Christmas Eve 1912, the stork presented Mrs. Arthur Cleveland with a ten-pound baby boy. That same night, the stork brought Mrs. Arthur Duell of Diamond Point a seven-pound son. A fine boy arrived Dec. 27, 1912 at the home of Dennis Bump of North River. The busy stork left a baby boy at the Trout Lake, Bolton home of George Tubbs. A son was born Dec. 29, 1912 to Mrs. Frank Clute in Stony Creek. (Note: “The stork” must have had only boys left to give out at the end of his 1912 inventory.)

Sweet and sour notes W.M. Marvin of Elizabethtown has been presented with a gold medal valued at $25 for having driven his Maxwell automobile 50,000 miles. The medal was awarded by the Albany Maxwell car dealers. The going rate for school teachers has been currently raised to $30 a month. A gasoline engine has been installed in Lee Hall’s excelsior mill in Stony Creek. William H. Morrise and Marion Daney, both of Igerna, were united recently in marriage at Pottersville. Harry Higgins of Igerna is ill with the grip and tonsillitis. Mrs. George Rhodes fell on the icy sidewalk and sprained her wrist. Mrs. Warren Bennett is ill with quinsy. Its going to be a long, cold winter. Readers are welcome to contact Adirondack Journal correspondent Jean Hadden at or 623-2210.

at a spaghetti dinner to occur Feb. 9. The community’s support of the PTSA is greatly appreciated. To become a member of the PTSA, visit the elementary school and pick up an application form. Adult membership is still just $7 and student membership is only $4.

School lunches to change Beginning Jan. 2, Warrensburg schools new cafeteria management will be serving new options for their student lunches. Aramark Corporation will be serving hot meals which will consist of various items such as macaroni and cheese to pancakes and scrambled eggs at the elementary school, and Penne Pasta with meat sauce to chicken patty sandwiches or Baja salad at the high school.

Thurmanites’ special days Celebrating birthdays this week are Bonnie Monroe, Stuart Baker and Earle Dibble on Jan. 6; Mark Rogers, Jimmy McGowan and Jenny Hill on Jan. 7; Gail Needham, Jean Rumble, Lorrie Smith, Chip Ligon and Matt Kennedy on Jan. 10; and Hial Hall IV, Lonna Sonley, Jacob Siletti and Makailyn Ward on Jan. 11.

On a personal note Irv West would like to thank the volunteers for the beautiful Christmas basket they delivered to his household. During a difficult time, such a welcome gesture brings that more cheer and is even more appreciated, he said. A second benefit of the basket delivery, he said was that the volunteer visited with his llamas. This time of year they do not have many visitors, West continued. If anyone would like to stop by and say hello to the wooly llamas, give Irv a call at 623-3987. “Critter Llama” he said, is especially enamored of kids, and kisses them all — so he suggests visitors bring a camera. Call 623-3987 to assure that Irv will be at home. Also, when our readers are ready to discard Christmas trees, think of this alternative: if the tree has not been sprayed, does not have tinsel, and is a Hemlock variety, feel free to drop it off at the base of Irv's driveway. The llamas love Hemlock — and the variety is a natural de-wormer, Irv said.

working diligently on behalf of his constituents. “You have my solemn oath that I will work hard, I will be honest, I will be plain speaking, and I will do the best that I can for all of the state of New York,” he said. “We’re facing difficult times, and we need to make sure we all work together on important issues — and if they’re not important, we must set them aside.” Stec continued that he was going to concentrate on advocating decisions that yield positive results for local citizens. “We’re going to roll up our sleeves and get this state moving down a better path,” he said. Stec said he was “floored” by the turnout of friends, family and community leaders throughout his 114th Assembly District, which includes all of Warren and Essex counties and portions of Saratoga and Washington counties. Among the community leaders in the audience was Glens Falls Economic Development Director Ed Bartholomew, who’s known Stec for decades. He said that Stec would serve the citizens of the lower Adirondacks quite well. “Dan will fight unnecessary regulations and mandates, he’ll strike a balance between urban and rural concerns, and he’ll be able to develop a consensus on issues due to his leadership abilities — and this is partic-

ularly important when he’s dealing with interests all over the state,” Bartholomew said. “He will be a great advocate for the region.” Essex County Sheriff Richard Cutting offered similar thoughts. “I’m impressed with Dan Stec’s dedication and commitment,” he said. “He knows the area, the people, and what we need in the Adirondacks — he’ll represent us tremendously.” Pondering his new position, Stec said he had not imagined 20 years ago that he’d be a state Assemblyman — but when the position opened up 10 years ago, he decided to seek the post. Although he bowed out of the race in 1992 and supported Teresa Sayward at the time, he has since had his sights set on the position. Stec’s mother, Elsie said that Dan, from an early age, would work hard to accomplish his goals. “He’s always done what he’s set out to do,” she said, referring not only to his career, but going off to college a year early, or achievements in high school sports — whether it was heaving a shot put for the track team or being an effective team player in football. Stec’s father, George Stec, said Dan would be effective in his new role. “Dan understands the word ‘compromise’ in achieving his goals,” he said. Until Tuesday, Dan Stec served as Queensbury supervisor for nine years. He was a town councilman for four years beforehand.

WARRENSBURG — The recent snowstorm delivered a foot of powder to Hickory Ski Center, but it wasn’t quite enough to get the slopes ready for skiers and boarders. The 1-foot-deep, newly fallen snow will be packed down with rollers—15-foot-long barrels that measure 3 feet in diameter—which will keep skiers from digging into the snow cover and hitting dirt. But Hickory doesn’t have snowmaking machines, so operators will have to wait for nature to provide a deep enough top layer before all 18 trails are ready to ride. “If we can pick up a minimum of another 6 inches, that would get us up and operating on most of the mountain,” Greco said. “The exception is the upper mountain, which would need another 14-16 inches to get open.” The upper mountain’s trails are more rugged and, according to Greco, “legendary” among Northeast skiers for their steepness. Unlike trails lower on the mountain, the upper slopes are also less manicured, which means skiers have to contend with an array of features, including large rocks, twists, turns and cliff drops. There’s still something for everyone,

will take you down to the base with great scenic views.” Hickory Ski Center opened in 1943 and is unique in that it is a “throwback” ski area, meaning it has changed little in the last 70 years. It also means there are no condos dotting the mountain, there is only one lodge, meals are cheap and all of the lifts are surface lifts, which means skiers never leave the ground. There are two Poma lifts, one T-bar and one handle tow to service the 5 miles of skiing. To keep costs down, Hickory only has three paid employees, two full-time and one part-time, and depends heavily on volunteers to do everything from cutting new trails in the off season to cleaning bathrooms when the center is open. “People can come here and spend less than $100 on their entire family and get lift tickets and a meal,” Greco said. “The hardcore skiers also know about us, and know where to look at the top of the mountain.” Greco said that, even if Hickory doesn’t get the extra snow it needs, there is still talk of opening the first weekend in January. If that happens the handle tow, which serves a beginner ’s trail called Bunny Hop, will operate at a discounted lift rate. To find out more, visit or call (518) 623-5754.

experience for somebody and through word of mouth and promotions, other people will come here.”

Railroad corridor from page 1


Cuomo announced that $738 million will be released for economic development projects throughout the state via the Regional Economic Development Councils. And Warren County is on tap to receive $308,000 for implementation of the First Wilderness Heritage Corridor Action Plan. Project components include: design of a new train station in the village of Corinth; restoration of the historic bandstand in the town of Warrensburg; and design of a new waterfront park on a 3.5-acre former Brownfield site in the town of Warrensburg. Established in 1999 as a way to boost tourism, the First Wilderness Heritage Corridor was designed to highlight the attractions, events, outdoor activities and businesses along the railroad corridor between Saratoga Springs and North Creek. The railway spans two counties — Saratoga and Warren — and follows the Hudson River north as it did when it first opened as Thomas Durant’s Adirondack Railroad in 1871. “We looked at what was common to all the communities that share the rail corridor,” LaMothe said. “The rail line — and the river — was the pathway into the Adirondacks. And the Adirondack Park was the first area in the country that was officially set aside as wilderness by a legislative action. Hence, we came up with the name the First Wilderness Heritage Corridor.” The First Wilderness Heritage Corridor Action Plan is a revitalization plan under the aegis of the New York State Department of State’s Local Waterfront Revitalization Program. It includes the Warren County towns of Johnsburg, Thurman, Stony Creek, Warrensburg, and Lake Luzerne and the Saratoga County towns of Hadley and Corinth. When it’s fully implemented, LaMothe said the goal is to extend the corridor another 30 miles north of North Creek to the Tahawus mine in the Essex County town of Newcomb.

Before promoting the corridor, the region must give travelers good reasons to get off the train in communities. “That’s why we’re looking at building the infrastructure — the better sidewalks, the better signage, hiking trails, the things the public sector can do that makes a community more inviting,” LaMothe said. In 2013, revitalizing the infrastructure in communities along the corridor will continue to keep LaMothe and his staff busy. “At last count, I believe I have 21 projects going on in the corridor from Corinth up to North Creek,” LaMothe said. “Enclosing train stations, designing new sites at the train station complex in Corinth. We’ve got a multitude of projects both big and small throughout the corridor.” There are two streetscape projects that will be seeing some progress this year: in Chestertown and North Creek. “We would hope to see construction begin in the spring, and we would like to do the design work over the winter,” LaMothe said of the North Creek streetscape project. During an interview in early December, LaMothe said he was still waiting to get the contract approved by the New York State Department of State’s Local Waterfront Revitalization Program. The town of Johnsburg is ready to enter into a design contract with the LA Group, and the state has to approve the document.

Two-pronged approach There are two aspects of implementing the First Wilderness experience. First planners have to answer the question, “What can people do when they come here?” “Those activities are more community driven — events, skiing, recreational opportunities, business opportunities, etc.,” LaMothe said. Then there is the physical side — the infrastructure — such as improving streetscapes and train stations. LaMothe approaches the project with one goal in mind: enhancing the economic opportunities by creating a corridorwide tourism experience. “When it all comes down to it, it’s an economic development activity,” LaMothe said. “There’s no other reason for it. It is to enhance what the community has A) for itself and B) for the tourists that come here. Hopefully it’s a quality

Promotion In order to be successful, the corridor needs to be promoted a whole, according to LaMothe. “The way for this to work is each town has to complement each other and not compete,” LaMothe said. “If everybody did the same thing, there’s only so many that come here, and if everybody had a golf course or everybody had a ski hill, there wouldn't be enough business for everybody.” Tourism promotion is designed on a regional approach by looking at the strengths of each community and designing day trips or vacations based on those activities. For example, Stony Creek golf course on the rail line; Hickory Ski Center in Warrensburg offers a different experience than Gore Mountain; North Creek has a vibrant downtown, crosscountry skiing at Garnet Hill Lodge, downhill skiing at Gore, and whitewater rafting on the Hudson River; and the Lake Luzerne-Hadley region has horseback riding at the old dude ranches. While the former tourist train — the Upper Hudson River Railroad (1999-2010) — offered excursions between North Creek and Riparius, it never had the connection to Saratoga Springs. And that helped burst the bubble of early optimism in the southern end of the First Wilderness Heritage Corridor, according to LaMothe. Since Iowa Pacific Holdings opened the Saratoga & North Creek Railway in July 2011,

January 5, 2013 things have been much different. “What Iowa Pacific has brought to the table is they have capital to invest, they are railroad people, they know how to run a railroad, and they know how to market and promote,” LaMothe said. “Now Iowa Pacific comes in, we have the connection to Saratoga, and all of a sudden in the other communities along the corridor it's, ‘OK, something is finally going to happen.’” Warren County set up a website to help promote the corridor — — and assigned the promotional duties to a staffer in the Planning Department, Pam Morin. She is trying to be the central nervous system for promoting the corridor and connecting all the different entities, and it’s a challenging job. But LaMothe said businesses and communities can help with promotion if they have an effective communication plan. “If people don’t go through the chamber or they don’t go through some regional entity, we don’t know about it and so we can’t put it on the First Wilderness Corridor site, and we can’t work with them to help promote it,” LaMothe said. “Cross promotion is the way we’re going to survive here.”

20 years of planning Countless hours of planning and millions of taxpayer dollars have gone into revitalizing the First Wilderness Heritage Corridor. And it’s been 20 years in the making. “The genesis of all this started in 1992 with the North Creek Action Plan,” LaMothe said. “And from that, a vision came out of North Creek. And in that action plan was one line that said, ‘If the rail line ever becomes available, the town or county should consider purchasing it.’” The Johnsburg Town Board adopted the North Creek plan in 1993, when the Canadian Pacific (CP) Railway still owned the old Delaware & Hudson Railway. That was the same year CP deeded the North Creek train station to the North Creek Railway Depot Preservation Association. In 1995, Warren County purchased the 40-mile right-of-way for the former Adirondack Branch of the D&H, extending from the town of Corinth in Saratoga County to North Creek. In 1997, LaMothe was at a planning conference where they talked about the National Heritage Rivers Program. “And we said that’s a concept that we can fit here,” LaMothe said. That led to a planning study for the First Wilderness Heritage Corridor in 1999 and state funds to further the corridor ’s infrastructure development. “That little North Creek Action Plan has grown,” LaMothe said. “It was a good investment.” In 2011, the Saratoga & North Creek Railway signed a lease agreement with Warren County for the right-of-way and now offers passenger service from Saratoga Springs to North Creek. In 2013, the company plans to begin freight service along the tracks from the old Tahawus titanium mine and the Barton Garnet Mine.
