Town’s prospects are bright, leader says By Thom Randall

APA attempting to enact a ‘buzz kill?’ By Jon Alexander RAY BROOK — Although not entirely opposed to all proposed Adirondack Park Agency restrictions to the size, height and uses of boathouses inside the Blue Line, local officials say they’re worried that the new regulations represent another example of the agency seeking to inappropriately expand its jurisdiction. Historically exempt from APA oversight, boathouses have typically been defined and regulated by local municipalities. But with the APA’s new proposal to exert control, local officials see the move as an erosion of local authority. Adirondack Local Government Review Board Executive Director Fred Monroe, said Jan. 6 the APA has ramped up their efforts to increase the scope of its oversight. “It seems to us they are trying to expand jurisdiction in a unique way,” Monroe said. Despite his concerns over ever-increasing government control, Monroe said that some of the proposed regulations — like limiting the footprint of boathouses to 900 square feet and eliminating plumbing — do make some environmental sense. But when it comes to a provision in the regulations that would eliminate secondstory decks above boathouses — a common summertime party spot for revelers and sunbathers — Monroe wonders if the agency just wants to enact a “buzz kill,” or merely spoil people’s enjoyable times. “There should be no fun had in the Adirondacks, so they are going to police it,” Monroe said. “The fun police.” In efforts to remake the image of the park and cultivate an annual base of monied tourists, local chambers of commerce, regional tourism development organizations and governments have focused recently on creating a “familyfriendly” ambiance and tame visitor ’s experience in the Park, some observers have said. Last spring, the Adirondack North

WARRENSBURG — Despite the tough prevailing times, the town government’s leader offered an upbeat vision of Warrensburg’s future as he pledged to contain taxes during a State of the Town speech he delivered Jan. 4. “We have just finished one of the most challenging times for local government — The economy is in a recession, the State is near bankruptcy and Warren County has cash flow problems,” he said, noting that the town board was able to drop the town tax rate by 17 cents per thousand. “Our number one priority for 2010 is to stay within budget while continuing to move the Town forward.” Geraghty said that 2009 was a year of considerable progress, with new attractions opening locally,

Paterson blasts political status quo in annual speech By Jon Alexander ALBANY — Gov. David Paterson attacked runaway spending, monied lobbyists and political corruption in his State of the State address Jan. 6, and the state legislators in the audience gave his speech perhaps the most unenthusiastic reception in recent history. With the backdrop of an election year, high profile corruption charges against a former legislative leader and skyrocketing projected budget deficits, Paterson launched his first volley of the New Year at legislators. Albany insiders are calling Paterson’s speech antagonistic posturing and an attempt to boost his sagging poll numbers by attack-

ing the equally unpopular legislative houses. Legislators gave a notably cool reception to his speech, which included strong new ethics reform and a warning that he wouldn’t write checks for state aid if the state was spending money they didn’t have.

WARRENSBURG — Two students at Warrensburg Central School have recently been recognized both for their academic work and their contribution to the school community, school officials said this week. Warrensburg High School Senior Morgan Harris, daughter of George and Lucy Harris of Warrensburg, was nominated for the award by Harris’ Advanced Placement English Teacher, Karen VanDusen, who praised her abilities and activities at the school. “Morgan is an extremely talented young lady,” VanDusen said. “She is not only a gifted writer, but also a talented artist.” VanDusen noted that Harris painted scenery for last year ’s play, 42nd Street, helped create the PRIDE wall at the high school, and adorned the walls of the Elementary nurse’s office and the Head Start classroom with her artwork. “Morgan’s art work is a gift that will be with us long after she has graduated,” VanDusen said. Fourth grader Mariah Nissen, the

daughter of Michael and Jennifer Nissen of Warrensburg, was nominated by her homeroom teacher, Carolyn Cyr, for the recent award. “Mariah is a truly self-motivated learner,” Cyr said. “In class, she is attentive and determined to do her best

work.” Cyr said Mariah’s interest in learning extends well beyond completing assignments given in class. “Mariah also contributes so much to the class with her science reports,” Cyr said. “Her interest in learning sets a fine example in my classroom.”

headlined by the resurrection of Hickory Hill Ski Center and the Warrensburg Historical Museum. He said the town board would be working to help businesses relocate and succeed in Warrensburg. “We will continue to evaluate economic development opportunities for the community,” he said, noting the board is seeking to expand the hamlet as far north as the Rte. 8—Rte. 9 intersection to accommodate development. “The Warrensburgh Museum of Local History reopened this summer and will serve generations to come,” he said. “Attendance will continue to grow once people find out what a treasure we have in the Museum and the efforts of the Historical Society and its members — Thanks go to all those dedicated people.” Other positive developments in 2009, he said, included installing flashing speed limit signs on Library Ave. and completing sidewalks along Elm St. He noted the town was awarded $38,919.20 in grant money to replace sidewalks around the local elementary school, and engineering was completed for the Woolen Mill Bridge on Milton Ave., which is scheduled to be replaced this year. Geraghty said that work has progressed on the town’s Master Plan, which is intended to enhance quality of life for residents. A $60,000 state grant was received to help move this project along, and additional input from the public will be appreciated, he said. Also underway is a project to replace the Tot-Lot playground at the recreation field,

Geraghty said, noting that a matching $62,500 grant was received from the state with the Town contributing in-kind services and materials. “Our goal is to have a modern, safe environment for the children to play,” he said. The town has applied for grants to bankroll several projects in town, including state-ordered sewer plant disinfection and expansion, sewer main extension along Library Ave., and to rebuild the historic Floyd Bennett Memorial Bandstand. He said the town is seeking to rectify high copper content in the drinking water, which may be a matter of aging pipes in individual households, rather than in the town water system. The town has launched a study with state authorities to determine the source of the high copper levels, and to determine potential corrosion treatments, he said. Geraghty said that in several weeks, town employees will begin training in the use of the computer equipment associated with water meters, which are likely to be in use for metering by summer. “If the Town Board approves, we’ll seek out grant funds for a new source of water,” adding that the board may decide to sell some town Water District property on Alden Ave. Geraghty noted that despite state aid cutbacks, the town Highway crews will continue to work on road projects and pave roads. “We did finish the year with a fund balance,” noting the town will be saving money up for new highway equipment. “I will continue to work in the best interests of all the Taxpayers, keep Warrensburg moving forward and work with the Town Board to meet all goals,” he said.

Warrensburg Town Court report Jan. 6 — Justice Richard Nissen presiding • The case of Danielle Prosser, 32 of Warrensburg was heard in court, concerning a Misdemeanor charge of seconddegree Reckless Endangerment based on an Oct. 22 incident. Police said she followed a victim in her vehicle, flashing her lights on high beam, blaring her horn and yelling threats out her window. Her case was adjourned to Jan. 20. • Daniel Wood, 21, of Athol in court due to failure to pay a $100 fine on a conviction of Disorderly Conduct. He told judge Nissen he was unemployed and there was no way he could pay the fine, so Nissen sent him to Warren County jail for 10 days in lieu of the fine. Wood is also facing a separate charge, a Misdemeanor of Unlawfully Dealing with a Child — relating to another incident. Police said he provided an alcoholic beverage to someone under 21. This latter case was was adjourned to Jan. 20. • Alvin Millington, 19, of Johnsburg, received an Adjournment in Contemplation of Dismissal on a charge of sec-

At the meeting, Alexander was sworn in, as was new town board member Bryan Rounds — who was elected in November. Also sworn in were Town Justice Mindy Fisk and Town Supervisor Kevin Geraghty, both entering another term. Named as official newspapers were the Adirondack Journal, which has news-gathering operations based in town, and the Post-Star, based in Glens Falls. The Adirondack Journal also received the “official newspaper” designation from the town of Lake George at their recent organizational meeting for 2010. Kim Monthony was named to serve on the Warren County Youth Board. It was noted that the Warrensburg town board members cut their own pay by 16 percent and froze the pay of other town officials, in light of reducing economic hardship to taxpayers. The salary to serve on town council was reduced from $5,300 to $4,444 per year. Plus,planned 3.5 percent raises were scuttled for the town Highway Superintendent, two town justices, the Town Supervisor and the Town Clerk. The town Water Superintendent and Public Works chief, Rick Galusha, voluntarily gave up his planned 3.5 percent raise. These salary cutbacks save a total of $10,000 annually.

WARRENSBURG — The Warrensburgh Historical Society is seeking former workers who were employed in the town’s once numerous mills and factories. The Society is planning to host an informal gathering of those workers, family members and the general public, for a reminiscence of times past. The event will be held at 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 24 at the Warrensburgh Museum of Local History on Main St. Warrensburg has a rich history of manufacturing, at its peak employing well over 1,000 men and women in water-powered factories and mills that lined the Schroon River. The jobs are gone, but some of those workers can still remember the hard work and long hours, but also the pride they felt in the product, whether it was a fine shirt or huge rolls of paper, Museum Director Steve Parisi said. There was also camaraderie among the workers, often with multiple generations of the same families working side by side, he said. As one of them quipped, the Warrensburgh Historical Society is finally “putting its priorities in order” while there is still people to remember those days, mostly a half-century or more ago, when the wheels and gears were turning and the noon whistle meant something other than a reminder to check your watch, Parisi said. Younger members of the community are invited to eavesdrop on their conversations, he said. The event’s format will be open to allow the participants to follow their own recollections. Questions from the audience will be encouraged. Mother nature was generous to Warrensburg, Parisi said, providing a 70foot drop in the Schroon River ’s elevation in the three-mile stretch of the river that bisects the town. The first mills

Town court officer should carry a gun, state says Town board considering the concept By Thom Randall WARRENSBURG — Town officials are seeking to replace an existing unarmed town court officer with someone who is certified to carry a gun for courtroom duty — and the proposal has sparked controversy. State Court System officers inspected the court premises and evaluated court operations in March 2009, and they recommended the presence of a trained, armed court officer. The state officers also suggested a dozen of other changes, including searching all who enter the premises with a magnetometer and x-ray screening devices, building a secure holding room for prisoners, and providing an armed escort for the court clerk in her trips to make bank deposits. Warrensburg Town Justices Richard Nissen and Mindy Fisk forwarded the recommendations to the town board, supporting particularly the concept of an armed officer, town officials said. Town Supervisor Kevin Geraghty said at a Jan. 4 town board meeting that the town was seeking to hire a new officer with a law en-

forcement background who was certified to carry a gun. He and board members cited two retired police officers that were seeking the court officer post. “Our two magistrates asked for an armed officer, he said, “and we need to take direction from them.” Al Smith, the current court officer — an Army veteran —said he’d like to retain his job as court officer, and that to do so, he would obtain the certification that the town board might require for carrying a gun. Town Court routinely convenes once per week for several hours. The position pays $2,500 per year. “As the incumbent, I should be given the first opportunity for the position,” he said, noting he is a retired U.S. master sergeant with 32 years tenure in the service, which includes 9 years in the military police. “I’ve been on duty for two and a half years, and I’d like to remain.” But the board talked primarily about hiring others seeking the job — retired patrol officers. Smith noted that none of the other town courts in the county had armed officers, and questioned why Warrensburg needed one. Local resident John Peluso, another Army veteran, said having an armed officer might decrease safety by boosting chances of a violent confrontation.


85 Hudson Street Warrensburg, NY


“If your court officer carries a gun, you are looking for big problems,” he said, adding that defendants could grab guns from an unwary officer and start shooting innocent people. And in the small courtroom, use of a gun by either the court officer or a suspect would be dangerous, with bullets ricocheting off the walls and ceiling, Peluso added. But Joe Barlow, Town Board member through Dec. 31, said he and fellow councilman Austin Markey met with the two justices, and they requested the armed officer. “The judges indicated they did not feel secure,” he said. Town officials cited an incident in 2009 in which a defendant was appearing before Justice Mindy Fisk, and the subject said he was through discussing his case and was exiting the courtroom, and Fisk asked Smith to detain him, but he declined. Efforts to contact Fisk were unsuccessful, but Justice Richard Nissen said he would not offer any comment beyond saying that he and Fisk supported the findings of the state inspection, at least those that were financially feasible to the town. Smith said Monday that he did not restrain the suspect from leaving the court because his written job description empowered him to only use verbal intervention, and that using physical force might pose a liability problem. If his job description were expanded to include physical force and carrying a weapon, he’d be glad to comply, he said. Smith said at the Jan. 4 meeting that the town board needed to specify the court officer ’s duties in writing to protect him and the

Al Smith Warrensburg Court Officer government from legal liability. Town board members agreed that the town needed to further define the court officer ’s duties, and the issue was referred to lawyer Mark Schachner, counsel for the town. Geraghty said Monday that whether to hire an armed guard with a law enforcement background was on hold until the board heard back from Schachner.

Town considering skateboard park site at municipal complex ‘Boarders’ ask council for facility





By Thom Randall LAKE GEORGE — Local teenagers seeking construction of a municipal skateboard park took their campaign Monday night to the Lake George Town Board. The skateboarders sat through a lengthy town board meeting, witnessing 90 minutes or so of the board’s occasionally contentious debate with members of the public, but the youths apparently won some new allies on the town board. The council members, by the conclusion of the meeting, agreed to evaluate the teens’ favored potential location for the proposed skateboard park. Group spokesman Tim Goutos said the group could raise money needed for construction of the park, but was seeking the town to dedicate land for the facility. “We need a flat spot that can be fenced in,” he said. We came here to show there is a need for a park.” Several other skateboarders, including Frankie Cavone and Cameron Aust spoke about how a skate park could not only provide recreational opportunities for local youth, but boost tourism by providing visitor another recreational attraction. Lake George Town Board members pledged to look at a location suggested by Lake George Mayor Robert Blais, a 50feet by 80-feet plot beside the Village Hall owned by the town government. Town Board members pledged to evaluate the proposal of the skateboarders, members of the local ACT For Youth teen organization and representing also the Communities that Care group. In a recent meeting including the two groups, it was estimated that $8,300 or so has been raised for the park’s construction, including a contribution of $5,000 in 2009 from the village government. Another $6,000 has been pledged to the effort, and fundraisers are being planned the youth said. Town officials have said one reason to construct a skate park has been to keep skateboarders off the streets, primarily for the teens’ own safety.

Town board members including Scott Wood asked the teens if the park were built beside the village hall, whether they’d discontinue skating down Old Post Road, the steep access road to the municipal complex. Other sites proposed Monday were the Lake George Recreation Center, Gaslight Village festival space and in Queensbury beside the municipal Gurney Lane pool and park. Lake George resident Patricia Dow spoke on behalf of the skateboarder ’s request. “This is a healthy activity for kids, and our community would do well to support them,” she said. “I ask that politics be set aside and that the town and village cooperate to find a suitable place.” She said the park would not only benefit local youth but boost tourism. “It’s important to honor the effort these youth are demonstrating — being part of our community and being good citizens,” she said.

ruman C. Brown and Matilda M. Taber, both of Warrensburgh, were married at the Methodist Episcopal Church at 4 o’clock Sunday. Although no friends or relatives were invited, about 30 people showed up at the church to witness the happy event. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Joel Hall of Sandy Hill (Hudson Falls). It is a fact that 50 years ago in Bolton at his first church, Rev. Hall performed the bridegroom’s first wedding ceremony and he was happy to be on hand to start him on his second matrimonial voyage. (Note…This wedding it is a link that connects the entire length of Warrensburgh’s history, from its humble beginnings to the present day. The following paragraphs will explain why. In three years, or 2013, Warrensburgh will celebrate its 200th anniversary of being a town. It was, however, 27 years before the big day, Feb. 12, 1813, that the first settler, William Bond arrived in 1786 to take up residence here. Two years later, in 1788, Caleb Brown was born in this frontier town that was than no more than a wide spot on the Indian trail that led to Canada. Caleb Brown eventually became the father of bridegroom Truman C. Brown. Truman’s first wife was Augusta French, born in 1839 and they had two children, Ella Brown and Milon Brown. They lived on Dickinson Hill, four miles from Warrensburgh. Augusta resided there on the farm for 42 years before she died at age 62 in 1902 of a severe attack of the grippe complicated by heart disease. Living in Warrensburgh today are direct descendants of this couple whose family made their mark on the town. Art Brown, who ran his shoe store next door to the bandstand for nearly 60 years is a descendent of Milon Brown who was once Warrensburgh road commissioner. George Hayes, who today lives on the old Wilsey farm near his mother, Louise Hayes, off upper Hudson St., is the great-great grandson of Truman Brown. George’s great-grandmother was Ella Brown Carpenter. There is another interesting connection. Truman Brown had a brother, Nathaniel Brown and four sisters. One of the girls, Sarah Brown married Miles Thomas, a school teacher from Bolton. After he became a successful Warrensburgh merchant, in 1873 he built a house for his bride which is today the Warrensburg Senior Citizens Center and Chamber of Commerce building on Main St. “From its pain-wracked tenement of clay Death released the soul” of this lady in 1911 when she died in that house. Miles and Sarah Thomas were the great-grandparents of state Assemblyman Harry Reoux, who lived, on the corner of Main and Hackensack streets until he died in 1968. Truman C. Brown is buried in the Warrensburg Cemetery beside his first wife, Augusta French. He died in 1928. Thus is our tale of 222 years of Warrensburg history. Time is

Bone-chilling tragedy Clayton Jackson of South Glens Falls and Brooklyn residents Thomas McTiernan and James Doherty met with a great tragedy in Utica. Doherty was killed instantly when the trio was hit by a light train engine. Jackson’s legs were cut off and he regained consciousness about 15 minutes after the accident and seeing that his legs had been amputated, he removed his shoe laces and bound his legs to stop the flow of blood. He saw that one of his companions had been killed and the other unconscious, whereupon he rolled over and over to a switchman’s shanty, nearly a third of a mile distant. From there he and McTiernan were rushed to a hospital. McTiernan died the next day but Jackson is expected to recover.

For more than half a century they raised a large family of sons and daughters in Horicon. She was buried in St. Cecilia’s Cemetery, Warrensburgh. James A. Lamb, 73, of Bolton died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Thomas Duell. He was the brother of Charles Lamb who lives at the old soldier’s home. Burial was in the Warrensburgh Cemetery. Horace Stewart, 77, died Dec. 29, 1909 at his home in Bolton Landing of a paralytic stroke. He was born in Bolton and for over 40 years was proprietor of the Stewart House there. Burial was in the Huddle Cemetery. During a blinding snowstorm, the Rev. W.I. Pond, one of the oldest retired Methodist preachers in the country, was killed th morning of Jan. 24, 1910 by a Hudson Valley trolley car at Baker’s Crossing, eight miles from Saratoga Spa.

Thanks to those helping the needy To the editor: The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle bells have stopped ringing, but their impact will resound throughout the year, thanks to the generosity of so many people and groups in the region. There are many to thank – our donors, our bellringer groups and individuals, the stores that welcomed the kettles, the media that informed the community of the need and, very importantly, our local coordinators and volunteers. Funds raised are used to help local families and children. As the Salvation Army field representative for the smaller communities in Eastern New York, I have spoken with many people and groups who are determined to help our struggling families during these tough economic times. No family or individual should be forced to make a choice between paying for heat or food and buying medicine. We thank you for making it possible for us to help those in need. May God bless you throughout the New Year! Major Clyde Jones Salvation Army

Preserve historic Warrensburg! To the editor: We are so blessed to live in such a beautiful area with two beautiful rivers running through our town, lovely mountains including Hickory Hill for skiing, Cronin’s Golf Course for recreation, and some quaint Victorian homes lining our Main Street. However, the possibility of Stewart’s moving to Stewart Farrar and Main St. will forever change the whole character of the town and its appeal. This action will scar this beautiful and quaint town. Keeping Stewart’s at its present location and incorporating it with the Potter ’s Diner property is the perfect solution, and I urge Stewart’s, Dr. Rugge, and Jack Toney to think of the good of the town and the community and do the right thing. Please, let’s preserve historic Warrensburg. Donna Westcott Warrensburg

To the editor: I’d like to add some information to the Journal’s coverage of the new Stewart’s store that is proposed for property currently owned by Hudson Headwaters Health Network. As most Warrensburg residents know, Hudson Headwaters has been a vital part of this community for more than 30 years. We have expanded our health center in the old A&P building several times, opened a new clinical services building in what was formerly Engle’s Department Store, and we use the former Charlie’s Shoe Store as the training center for our entire staff. These medical facilities, all on Main Street, log more than 50,000 patient visits each year. Clearly, what happens in Warrensburg is extremely important to us. We are committed to this community, and we employ many people who live here. Recently, our Board decided to sell property on Main Street about a 1/4-mile north of the health center. Frankly, we can’t imagine finding a more responsible, community-oriented company than Stewart’s to purchase this land. While the zoning allows for many types of commercial activity at this site, we strongly desire a buyer who will value our neighbors and our community. Stewart’s fits this bill. They will be proposing an Adirondack style store, and will work with the community and their new neighbors in developing the site. The funds from the sale of this property will go directly toward improving the Warrensburg Health Center. The sale will help us to expand and improve our health care services, including women’s care, pediatrics, behavioral health and the storage and retrieval of patient records. The people of Warrensburg will not only gain an expanded health center, they will also realize a substantial addition to the tax rolls, with Stewart’s investing more than $1 million dollars in the site. While Hudson Headwaters contributes to town taxes through a special payment, the amount we pay on this property is a fraction of what Stewart’s can be expected to contribute. Our Board of Directors, which includes three Warrensburg residents, considers this a win-win situation. To complete the sale to Stewart’s, we will ask the Town Board to amend the zoning for the back part of the lot, where the old post office building now sits. That part of the property currently allows for office development, but a zoning modification is needed for Stewart’s. The front part of the site, where the gas pumps will be, is already properly zoned. Hudson Headwaters needs to move forward to divest itself of this land. The proceeds will help us to improve health care services and the sale will increase town tax rolls. We look forward to a positive response from the Town Board. John Rugge, M.D. Founder, CEO Warrensburg Health Center Hudson Headwaters Health Network

New leader named at North Warren Chamber CHESTERTOWN — The North Warren Chamber of Commerce now has a new president — a woman experienced in motivating and organizing business leaders for positive change in their communities. The change in leadership occurred recently at an annual meeting of the Chamber, a leading organization in Northern Warren County. Barbara Thomas, who relocated to the Adirondacks from Virginia, previously served as an active member of the Board of Directors of a chamber that served over 800 businesses. Also, Thomas twice received the award for Small Business Person of the Year and help to develop yearly plans for that chamber. Her new responsibilities for the North Warren Chamber include general oversight of the organization, membership goals, and direction of programs and committees, as well as planning new endeavors. Originally from Oswego, Thomas is currently a Mary Kay Beauty consultant, and has been a member of the North Warren Chamber for three years. Greg Beckler, outgoing president after eight years of dedicated service to area business development, will continue as proprietor of Stone Bridge & Caves Park, a local area attraction in Pottersville owned by his family for generations. Greg is also president of the Warren County Council of Chambers. Under his direction, the North Warren Chamber moved to a larger building, membership increased significantly and yearly events such as Summerfest and the Pug Parade & Hal-

loween Party became areawide weekend attractions, according to community leaders. Barbara Thomas plans to continue these events, as well as expand on his successes, she said this week. “We have a great dynamic working for us in this area,” she said. “Local residents as well as tourists enjoy taking part in the events we organize, and we are located in an area that has great natural resources for outdoor activities. This is a great place to live and I enjoy working with Barbara Thomas the people here.” The leadership changes in the local Chamber include Thomas Johansen assuming the role of Vice President for a one-year term. One new board member, Kim Olden, will serve for a period of three years. Continuing in their existing roles at the Chamber are Patti Stetson, Treasurer, and Trish Heckman, Board Secretary and Office Manager.

During the week, plus, between Christmas and Jan. 4 did anyone in their travels throughout the town see any children out playing in the snow, building snowmen, or riding down hill, or even out walking or sliding on the ice? Twenty years ago our children would have been spending much of their vacation time outside, and my column would have included a notice to drivers to be cautious and drive with care, with so many out playing during their school vacation. Now the kids have disappeared. They all seem to have Play-Stations, Game-Boys, computers, a television in every room, etc. and never seem to be outside playing. Instead of skating or sledding, they’re likely to be inside updating their Facebook page, sending text messages to friends or playing some Internet-based game — if their not busy with their X-Box console. We have the antidote! We know how children can get a taste of real life. Here’s the concept: The Thurman Youth Commission would like to have children call about some fun activities in which they’d be interested. Let Maria know at 623-9961. She may need your help in getting them started, and your children will likely be able to help organize some real fun, too!

Chamber, Sagamore help with heating bills

BOLTON LANDING — There are rumors circulating that restaurants in the Bolton area are not open this winter season. That is not true, although some have gone to a weekend schedule. The majority are up and running and preparing the same delicious food you have come to enjoy during the summer months. Enjoying a meal at one of our local restaurants is the perfect remedy for a case of cabin fever! Considering the recent cold weather we’ve been experiencing, it looks like Lake George will be ready for the upcoming Bolton Classic Ice Fishing Derby scheduled for Feb. 20. The event is sponsored by the Bolton Landing Chamber of Commerce and the Kiwanis Club of Glens Falls. Call Karl Klein 743-1116 for entry forms and information.

Personal notes Snowbirds Pete and JoAnn Smith reported this week that their weather was 32 degrees in Naples, Fla. They know it is hard for us to sympathize, but when they are used to wearing flip-flops, the frigid weather has forced them to dress creatively. Fortunately for their dog Oliver, in packing for their excursion south, they included one heavy sweatshirt that they share in order to take him for walks. The weather also forced Nancy Rhodes to the treadmill instead of enjoying her daily walks along the beach and streets of Marco Island.

Speaking of the cold weather, the Bolton Landing Chamber of Commerce is pleased to be able to help some residents pay their heating bills this winter through the “Heat Our Neighbor” program. The Sagamore Resort generously donated $5,000 just as they did last year. Along with donations made mostly by the business community, the Chamber will be able to help at least 20 families this winter. Feel free to call me at 644-3880 with your information about events in Bolton Landing, as well as news tips and updates on family members.

Artists begin work on Chrissy’s Chairs In case you haven’t heard, area artists are already getting busy designing, embellishing and painting Adirondack chairs for the 2010 installment of the ever-popular Chrissy’s Chairs auction event. Many of the same artists are participating, but there are a few new faces that will add a lot of interest to the mix this year. The auction isn’t until Aug. 21, but you will be seeing the decorative chairs throughout town all summer long. This year the event’s organizers will also be raffling off a chair — so everyone can have a chance at going home with a unique piece of art. Last year, through the widespread participation in the auction by area visitors and residents, Chrissy’s Fund was able to raise and donate $13,000 to High Peaks Hospice.

Bolton Library news BOLTON LANDING — The monthly meeting of Bolton Free Library Board of Trustees will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 27, at which time the trustees will likely review the results of this week’s election. The library offers free Scrabble every Friday at 1 p.m. Library officials are also considering offering a game night or afternoon, and residents are asked to call the library director at 644-2233 to express their interest. The Library Book Club meets regularly, and new participants are welcome. Contact the library for details, and see upcoming issues of the Adirondack Journal for library news.

Boathouse From page 1 Country Association released a state survey that found that the majority of tourists in the Adirondacks are wealthy babyboomers, looking for a plush yet superficially rustic experience. Meanwhile, the agency has apparently ramped up its efforts to remake or create rules and regulations, many of which are intended to eliminate or reduce man-made objects from view. Since 2005, the APA has created or significantly updated about 10 new regulations, often reinterpreting the State Land Master Plan or the APA Act in the process. Local officials blame the increase in APA effectiveness on the recent loss of GOP control in the state Senate and a subsequent influence of green groups at the agency. Even agency officials admit that the last several years has been a time of relatively active regulatory review and reform. In recent months, the agency has expanded shoreline setback rules to include formerly grandfathered structures, while attempting to narrow the definition of hunting and fishing cabins. This latter initiative was unsuccessful APA Chairman Curt Stiles said that it is time for agency reform — for the good of the state and local populations. He said this week that the changes enacted since 2008 under his tenure are meant to clear up an immense amount of ambiguity in the nearly 40year-old regulations. The agency currently has three legislative initiatives waiting for state Assembly sponsorship, two of which have garnered general support from local governments. They are the first APA legislative initiatives in 20 years. As for the newest set of proposed regulations, he argues that the package stems from “good science” and seeks to only limit the damage to inpark waterways. “What we are trying to protect over the long term in the Adirondacks is water quality,” Stiles said. “Disturbances of the riparian buffer is what you are trying to avoid.” Numerous studies have cited vegetative clearing as a sure-fire means of increasing a lake’s nutrient load and causing its de-oxygenation, which threatens wildlife. Stiles noted that the limitations on height and footprint suggested by the agency are based on a park-wide survey of local municipal laws, which vary widely from town-to town. And when it comes to party decks, it’s all about appropriate classification. “The point is a simple one and it’s not a ‘no-party’ rule,” Stiles said, noting that in existing shoreline setback rules, a deck is restricted to 100 square feet. “Why does it make sense to be able to build a 1,000 square foot deck, tenfeet off of the water, and call it a boat house?” The agency is currently holding public hearings throughout the park regarding the boathouse regulations. Regulators and pro-tourism organizations consider the changes necessary steps to ensuring a viable Adirondack economy. And although the proposed boathouse rules are not prompting the ferocious dissent that has followed previous regulatory reforms, for local officials, they stand as just another sign of the times — ever increasing government 67072 intervention.

State From page 1 allowed amount of campaign contributions. It would also abolish the current ethics oversight committee composed of legislators and create an independent commission with oversight jurisdiction over elected officials. Imposing term limits on legislators would require an amendment to the State Constitution, an action that the governor said he intends to pursue. Paterson argued that lobbyists are driving decisions in Albany by throwing money at legislators and essentially robbing the public of fair and open representation. And he didn’t hesitate to take a shot or two at special interests, many of whom were in attendance. “The monied interest, many of them here today as guests, have got to understand that their days of influence in this Capitol are numbered. They have routinely demanded special treatment without any regard for others,” he said. “The reality is, that there is no moral high ground in trampling on other to get there and there is nothing lower than engaging in the currency of influence to the detriment of other New Yorkers that don’t have the same representation.” Local officials have repeatedly alleged that green groups wield far too much influence over the Adirondack Park Agency. Late last month, former

Bowl-A-Thons to Benefit Alzheimer’s group LAKE GEORGE — Area residents will be able to have fun bowling and help support the area programs and services of the Alzheimer ’s Association at two Bowl-AThon events. The fundraiser events will take place on Saturday and Sunday Jan. 30-31, Lake George Bowl, Canada Street, Lake George Village.

GOP Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno was convicted of two counts of corruption after using his staff and influence to the benefit of political backers. If adopted, Paterson’s ethics reform package would strip elected officials convicted of felonies while in office of their pensions. Paterson’s proposed ethics reform proposals closely mirror the wants of minority Republicans, some of whom have been touring the state promoting a state Constitutional convention and calling for similar reforms. Democratic legislative leaders have said they intend to fight some of the ethics reforms, particularly term limits. Paterson’s scathing criticism of the legislature didn’t end with ethical violations. Paterson blasted representatives for forcing his hand over the last months, and falling short in adequately closing a $3.2 billion budget deficit. In 2010-2011 the state Office of the Budget is predicting a deficit of between $7 billion and $9 billion. And he reminded legislators that he is more than willing to do it alone if he must. “The governor will exercise authority to prevent this state from going into default,” he said. “You have left me with no choice, so whether be it by veto or delayed spending, I will not write bad checks and I will not mortgage our children’s futures.” Paterson has been blasted by the education lobby and

school administrators for withholding 10 percent of aid payments in mid-December. His agenda includes a 4 percent cap on state spending increases and the creation of the Excelsior Program, a replacement for the defunct and often-abused Empire Program. The Excelsior Program would provide tax incentives and startup cash for businesses in the clean energy and high tech sectors. The Governor ’s Office estimates that the program could create as many as 50,000 jobs over the next decade. Taking yet another play from the GOP handbook, Paterson called for state agency consolidation and mandate relief for local governments. In 2009-2010, New York will spend around $43 billion on Medicaid, most of which is in reimbursement to the counties for mandated programs. Governor ’s Office spokesman Morgan Hook said Wednesday that Paterson is considering slashing Medicaid funds and school aid in an attempt to balance the upcoming budget. But Go.O.P. state Sen. Betty Little said if Paterson wants to point fingers at who is responsible for the current budget meltdown, he should scrutinize his own prior actions. “Last year ’s budget was a killer that raised taxes by a record amount. I voted against it, and it is good to hear others who voted for it recognize their error, but it won’t be enough to hold the line on taxes this year,” Lit-


tle said. When it comes to ethics reform, Little and Paterson are more closely aligned. “Cleaning up Albany with an ethics bill that has teeth would restore some confidence in this institution,”

Little said. “Clear lines need to be drawn, there needs to be more accountability and transparency, and when an elected official violates the public trust the penalty has to be real and serve as a deterrent.”

Senate Republicans are calling Paterson a hypocrite and citing that he promised last year to hold the line on taxes, but followed that pledge with an executive budget featuring numerous tax hikes and new fees.

heights. “Next year will be very good,” he said. “We’re really in a two-year deal here.” Junior Travis Monroe and Junior Bryan Beckler scored four points each. Aiken and Seeley hit one three-pointer each. With the win, North Warren is 1-5 in the league and 3-6 overall. Fort Edward is 3-3 in the league.

Warrensburg 48 Salem Central 35 WARRENSBURG — Junior John Joseph rose to the occasion Friday, working in tandem with Senior standout Brendan Frye in scoring 10 points apiece to power the Burghers to a 48-35 win over Salem.

North Warren 34 Fort Edward 26 CHESTERTOWN — This season’s North Warren Boys Basketball team, having lost all five starters from 2008-09, has a considerable challenge in the ever-tough Adirondack League. After playing hard during the early-season stretch against the top teams in the league — like Argyle, Lake George and Corinth — they’ve apparently learned a lot. Friday, the squad made a statement — they’re a force to contend with. With a cheering Cougar fans backing them up on their home hardwood Jan. 8, they defeated Fort Edward 34-26 in a combative defensive showdown that gave North Warren their first league win of the 2009-10 year. And this was against a hard-playing, athletic Forts squad that has a respectable 4-4 record. In the game, key Cougar players played tough. Instead of losing the ball, they forced turnovers. Instead of giving up one rebound after another, they grabbed more than their share — 14 turnovers in all — to secure the victory, Coach Jason Humiston said. “Our guards — and all our players — did a nice job taking care of the ball,” he said. “Our whole team played a nice defensive game.” “This was a long time coming,” Humiston said. “Our players were a nervous at the beginning of the season, but they played with more confidence Friday — they played a little looser, they’re settling in.” Junior Joe Aiken and Sophomore Kristian Seeley each scored seven points for the win, and Senior Jeff Bennett and Sophomore Benn Frasier scored six each in the balanced team effort. Frasier and Junior Travis Monroe tallied seven rebounds each for the Cougars, Humiston said. “These guys did a nice job playing a big game for us on boards,” he said. “Our players are starting to find their role and get the idea of what we want them to do — play tough defensive and score once in a while.” Kristian Seeley, Jeff Bennett and Bryan Beckler played well at guard, Humiston said, noting that his players applied pressure on the press, which led to some easy baskets. “It was a total effort,” he said. “We didn’t shoot the lights out, but defense was the key.” Humiston said he can’t wait until next season, when the team, heavy with Juniors and Sophomores, reaches new

LAKE GEORGE — Warrior Matt McGowan led all scorers with 22 points and teammate Forward Alex Hladik, a former North Warren star, contributed 19 points in Lake George’s steamrolling of Whitehall Jan. 8. Lake George’s stingy defense contained the Whitehall offense. Railroader Richard Tisi led Whitehall with seven points. Assisting in the tenacious Warrior campaign — which included a 28-8 third quarter, were J.D. Jenkins with 9 points, Jeff Maldonado and Matt Stover with seven each, and Aaron Chambers with six. Lake George also won the Junior Varsity game.

Bolton 37, Chazy 15 CHAZY — In an aggressive defensive battle Friday between two MVAC league opponents, Bolton came out on top with a 37-15 win. Senior Dom Pfau scored 15 points in the win, and his offensive show included five three-pointers. Sophomore Mitchell Jordan showed his athleticism, tallying 11 points and 10 rebounds. The Bolton Eagles had a runaway 17-4 quarter that accounted for the tilted final tally. With the win, Bolton is 4-2 in the league and 6-4 overall.

Argyle 54, Lake George 47 ARGYLE — Hot shooting by unbeaten Argyle and an outof-tune Warrior effort led to an uncharacteristic 54-47 loss for Lake George in an Adirondack League basketball game Jan. 6. The tenacious Argyle squad fought back in the second half, after trailing the first two stanzas 29-21. Matt McGowan led the Warriors with 18 points, while Alex Hladik scored 15.

Hartford 40, North Warren 35 CHESTERTOWN — North Warren played aggressively, fighting back with in the closing minutes of the game, but couldn’t quite catch up to the Tanagers in this Jan. 6 league contest. North Warren scored 14 points in the fourth stanza in the dedicated effort. With the Hartford defense shutting down inside play, Cougar Jeff Bennett hit a record five three-pointers in his 18point scoring campaign. Aiding him was Bryan Beckler with seven points and Kristian Seeley with four.

Warrensburg 57, Whitehall 53 WARRENSBURG — A trio of Burghers cooperated in a scoring show to eke out a win Jan. 6 over an energized Whitehall. Leading by one point at the half, Warrensburg fought tough and prompted a heavy dose of adrenaline to fuel the home crowd. Senior Brendan Frye led the Burghers offensive show with 21 points, and Junior Ryan Belden contributed 14. Junior Mike Curtis put in a solid game with 11. Whitehall played one of their finest games of the season, sinking three 3-point goals in the third — but the Burghers prevailed. An element of their victory was shutting down Whitehall’s inside game. Railroader Richard Tisi led all players with 22 points which included six threepointers.

ELIZABETHTOWN — Dom Pfau scored a gamehigh 19 points and Mitchell Jordan added 15, to propel Bolton to a solid win Jan. 6. His offensive show — no surprise here — included three three-pointers. With the win, Bolton improved to 3-2 in the MVAC league. The Eagles Junior Varsity win was also appreciated by Bolton fans.

Girls Varsity Basketball Warrensburg Guard Jaci O’Brien dribbles towards the Burgher basket, backed up by teammate Isabella Szabo (right) during a game Dec. 22 against Corinth. O’Brien hit a three-pointer during the game — won by the Tomahawks. The Burghers got back on track Dec. 30 with a win a decisive over Johnsburg. In that game, Holly Gheen scored a career-high 14 points and Szabo tallied eight points and six steals. Eighth Grader Brittany DeCrescente, just elevated from Junior Varsity, scored six points in the offensive show.

Warrensburg 51 Fort Edward 33 SALEM — Warrensburg Girls Varsity Basketball Coach Scott Smith, mentoring a team that’s struggling this season, decided this week to shake up his lineup. Not change for change’s sake, but to put the opponent off balance. Smith put four guards onto the floor in a starting lineup against Salem. The result of this quad-squad attack was a record setting victory, as the team defeated the Generals 51-33. In the process, Burgher Point Guard Jaci O’Brien was freed up to shoot rather than routinely driving the ball down the hardwood. The result was stellar for the Burghers, as O’Brien tallied a career-high 23 points, Smith said Monday. “With four good ball-handlers on the court, the guard duties weren’t entirely on Jaci’s shoulders,” he said. “Finally she drove to the basket a lot, playing the way she’s capable of.” Particularly satisfying was how the Burghers turned back a Salem comeback in the fourth quarter, enlarging a slim five-point lead into a final 18-point gap. “We were able to break it back open,” Smith said. “We put pressure on Salem, forcing turnovers which led to some layups,” he said. “Also, we took some trips to the foul line, which were important for us.” Backing up O’Brien was fellow Sophomore Guard Isabella Szabo, who grabbed six rebounds for the second game in a row. Contributing to the effort was Casey Duell and Brittany DeCrescente, an eighth-grader elevated from Junior Varsity just before Christmas. She recorded nine points and 10 steals.

Whitehall 49 Lake George 27 WHITEHALL — The standout Railroader athlete Brittany St. Clair scored 19 points and commanded an equal number of rebounds to power Whitehall to a 49-27 league victory Jan. 8 over Lake George. Brittany Baker led Lake George with nine points. With the frustrating loss, the talented Lake George squad retreated to 4-2 in the Adirondack League.

North Warren 41 Fort Edward 38 FORT EDWARD — Faced with a 12-22 first-half deficit, North Warren girls proved their true grit, as they took charge and outscored Fort Edward 29-16 in the second half to secure the victory over the Forts Jan. 8. The Forts fought back in the closing minutes with an offensive surge that included two three-pointers to cut the North Warren lead to one, but the Cougars hit a shot with just several seconds left to close out the game. Lindsey Meade led the Cougars with nine points and teammates Kelsey Hamblin, Katherine Andonucci and Kiera Warner each had eight in the balanced effort, North Warren Athletic Director Jason Humiston said. “Our girls are much more dedicated than in the past, and our coaching staff of P.J. Hogan and Larry Warner are doing a great job building an outstanding program,” he said, noting they’ve recruited the girls to play club ball off-season. “The players are now executing on the floor and making good decisions,” he said. “Their basketball IQ is higher now, and this is not only a tribute to them, but their parents, considering how much traveling is involved.” The North Warren girls’ team improves to 4-5 overall with the win, their best in years.

Bolton 40, Wells 29 BOLTON LANDING — Bolton teammates Danielle St. Amour and Dominique Jean Servelli combined unrelenting offense and tenacious defense in defeating Wells, 40-29 in a Mountain and Valley basketball matchup Jan 6. St. Amour scored a game-high 19 points with 17 rebounds and Servelli contributed 13 points with 12 rebounds.

Adirondack bucks: Walking themselves to death?

But I paid for our park with my taxes how can you charge a fee to use it?

Currently, the Trail Supporter patch, available with a $5 donation, is one of the only methods for non-anglers, hunters or trappers to contribute to the Conservation Fund. The Habitat Stamp pin is a token of appreciation that is provided to individuals that make a voluntary $5 contribution to DEC to preserve wildlife habitat across NY state.


he concept of charging an entrance toll, a user fee or a parking permit to utilize public lands, such as those encompassed within the 6.5 million acres Adirondack Park is an issue that always stirs people’s emotions. However if the quality of the experience declines due to misuse and abuse of the woods and waters, lack of conservation law enforcement, wilderness protections and other similar matters, we will all pay in the end. On busy summer weekends there may be up to 100 rafts, each holding 8 to 10 people, riding a dam released bubble through the public waters of the Hudson River gorge. At a cost of around $75 to $85 per person, the 17-mile run from Indian Lake to North River provides nearly a dozen whitewater outfitters with a steady, three season income. Incorporated into each outfitter’s rate structure is a town imposed user fee for each paddler in the raft. Annually, these user fees contribute over $75,000 to the town of Indian Lake, a sizable chunk of change for a small town budget. The regularly scheduled water releases from Lake Abanakee have enabled outfitters to reliably offer rafting adventures throughout the summer and into the fall. And while the ride is exciting, it’s a far more family friendly experience than springtime runs when the raging Class V-VI river is filled with snowmelt and chunks of ice. To the paddlers, the user fees go unnoticed. Guests leave happy after a thrilling, 17-mile wilderness adventure, the hotels and bars are full, the restaurants are busy and local taxes are relatively stable. A similar process plays out on the Sacandaga River near Lake Luzerne, where a regularly scheduled dam release provides whitewater enthusiasts with a similar, watery bubble of opportunity all summer long. However, user fees collected for the use of the Sac’s public waters are deposited into the bank account of National Grid, a British consortium that now owns the former Niagara Mohawk Power Company dam. Is it fair to charge paddlers a fee for the use of a public river? Would it be any different than collecting money from hikers utilizing trails in the Forest Preserve or from paddlers utilizing local streams and ponds? The very notion goes against principles of our national culture. It violates our inherent right of a sense of adventure, the freedom to roam at will and the ingrained, pioneer spirit that seems to dwell in the very core of most outdoor travelers. Such is the conundrum currently facing many state and national agencies charged with the responsibility of managing our nation’s wild lands. In future years, the value of our wild lands will surely increase due to both the financial and climate changes that lie ahead. While officials interested in implementing user fees on public park lands may be questioned about the fairness of charging fees for taxpayer-supported operations, collecting a fee for the cost of a so-called "free" service has its advantages. "The issue of the fairness of user fees was answered in the parks and recreation industry 15 years ago," explained Ken Conway, a Park Director in Cameron County, Texas. "Users of parks are willing to pay a reasonable fee for a quality service. The whole recreation industry nationwide has really em-

braced user fees as a way to make sure there's support in the budget from year to year." Camping and RV sites on South Padre Island generated over $1.6 million in revenue for Cameron County, Texas last year. It has been estimated that one out of every five US travelers will choose an outdoor vacation this year. But, it is a fact that over 100 million people live within a day’s drive of the Adirondack Park. Do the math! If just a $10 fee was collected from only the estimated 200,000 visitors that visit the Eastern High Peaks annually, the state could collect an easy $2 million. Think of the income that New York state could generate with the registration of mountain bikes, as it is done in popular destinations such as Moab and Red Rock. Or even canoes. Of course, for anyone purchasing a hunting, trapping or fishing license, such registrations would be included. Registrations could be purchased through a special unit of the motor vehicles office. Purchases could be accomplished instantly via the current DECALS computer licensing system. User fees are currently being collected for the use of state parklands in nearly a dozen states including California, Texas, Wisconsin, Colorado, Oregon, Arizona, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and New Hampshire. Could New York be next? Many people don’t realize it, but New York is already there! For several years, New York State has collected user fees, through the Department of Motor Vehicles. ATV and snowmobile registrations include fees dedicated to the development of off-road trails. Sadly, the money has been paid, but development of the trails is still lagging. If user fees were to be collected from all user groups, including hikers, bikers, paddlers. climbers and skiers, the proceeds would have return to the trails and bridges, put in sites and accessible waters. In 2006, the DEC instituted a voluntary user fee for hikers with its Trail Supporter patch. All monies raised from sales of the $5 patch are dedicated to the Conservation Fund's Outdoor Recreation, Trail Maintenance, and Development Account to help maintain and enhance non-motorized trails throughout New York State. The first year of the program, the DEC sold 482 items with $2,320 revenue. In 2009, only 131 of the voluntary Trail Supporter Patches sold for a total of $655. Trails Supporter Patches are available for purchase for a $5 donation at all outlets where sporting licenses are sold and they are also sold and on DEC's website. In a comparable effort focused on hunters and anglers, DEC sales of a $5 habitat stamp, dedicated to the protection and enhancement of fish and wildlife habitat, garnished over $4,000 through voluntary contributions. A lapel pin comes with the donation. I usually purchase both items, along with my annual Sportsman’s license. At a cost of nearly $90, the annual license is a bargain. It lets me take home a fair quantity of locally raised, free range, all organic, fish, game, fowl and other all natural collectibles such as fresh berries, wild mushrooms and an assortment of other woodland table fare. Programs such as the Trail Supporter Pass and Habitat Stamp allow users to exhibit their contribution. The development of similar patches for paddlers, rock climbers, backcountry skiers and snowshoers would allow other user groups could provide the opportunity for everyone to contribute and be represented. Such an effort would also go a long way toward reducing the alienation and fragmentation of various user groups. I have found that most sportsmen and women, are also avid hikers and paddlers, skiers and snowshoers. In actuality, it appears that members of the various user groups often have more commonalities than they have differences. We all share a common bond in our desire to enjoy our respective activities, even if some of the pursuits are limited by the season. The annual invasion of the ‘leaf peepers’ is one example of a user group traveling the woodlands of the Adirondacks seeking something other than fish or game for their efforts. Birders, who venture north to view the massive flights of snow geese along Lake Champlain are yet another growing user group. There are many more. Next week, I will investigate various concepts of implementing user fees. Reader comments and suggestions are most welcome. Joe Hackett is a guide and sportsman residing in Ray Brook.

o dominant bucks “rut themselves to death” in their quest to locate and breed does during the mating season here in the Adirondacks? I discussed that question the other day with Jim Westover of Westport, himself a longtime avid hunter. Jim said he recently saw a show on one of the outdoor channels that focused on our deer herd in the Adirondacks. The premise of the show was that our bucks rarely live past age 4 or 5 and a half or reach their true potential because they are forced to wander great distances to find does to breed — at times traveling upward of 15 miles a day. “They basically said our bucks walk themselves to death because we don’t have the number of deer per square mile that there are in other parts of the country,” Jim said. “They said it takes something like nine deer per square mile to keep a buck from roaming.” The video, he said, showed large dominant bucks heading into the winter months completely emaciated from the rut, only to succumb to the elements or predators because they lacked the fat reserves needed to make it through the winter. I asked Ed Reed, senior wildlife biologist with the DEC in Raybrook, his take on the findings of the show. He said while some of the claims sound plausible, other data may have been sensationalized. “For instance, how did they determine that a buck needs nine does per square mile to be ‘content,’” Reed asked. “Some recent research shows that bucks actually breed with only three to five does each year, and that younger bucks do a significant amount of breeding.” Reed said a 5-and-a-half-year-old buck is considered old anywhere in the northern U.S. and said the Adirondacks may have an even higher percentage of older deer than other areas because they have so many areas to escape hunters. “We check very few old bucks at meat lockers each year, but do check some older than 5 and a half every year. I checked a 10-and-a-half-year-old buck a few years ago that had a decent 10-point rack but looked to be in pretty poor body condition,” he said. Nevertheless, Reed said some of the assertions made during the show sound plausible. For example, it is well documented that bucks lose body condition during the rut — at times losing 20 percent of their body weight — and must rebuild fat reserves following the rut to increase their chance of survival. An early onset of severe winter weather can make putting those reserves on even more difficult, he noted. But, Reed said the harsh weather and poor nutrition here plays as big a part in bucks, and does for that matter, dying at a young age as the rut. And, Reed said, DEC staff rarely find a dead buck in the deer yards during their annual spring dead deer surveys. “Our whitetails have been dealing with the rigors of breeding and harsh winters for many thousands of years, so I think they have evolved a solid strategy for survival,” he said. “Evolution favors the strategy that leads to the perpetuation of the species, not necessarily the longevity of individuals.”
