DEC cuts off community’s lifeline By Jon Alexander email@example.com
WCS honored for student achievement By Thom Randall firstname.lastname@example.org
BEAVER RIVER — Scott Thompson knows a thing or two about ferrying people across the Stillwater Reservoir in Herkimer County. After all, he has done it his entire life, as did his father and grandfather, reaching back 60 years. For 50 years or more, his family’s ferry has been the only way to get people in or out of the hamlet of Beaver River. Beaver River residents have depended solely on the ferry to shuttle food, supplies, vehicles and equipment, as well as taking people to doctor ’s appointments, to go shopping, or even visit the outside world. No access road to the hamlet has existed since 1876, when the sole pathway was flooded by the state to create the reservoir. Rail service to the hamlet of Beaver River was discontinued in 1949. Now, the state Department of Environmental Conservation is seeking to prohibit the ferry service from operating, citing that it’s illegally using state property. But the action is likely to strand dozens of local residents, cutting them off from the rest of civilization. Friday, the Warren County Board of Supervisors approved an emergency measure objecting to DEC’s order, issued Nov. 30, that the ferry service be halted permanently. According to DEC Region 6 spokesman Steve Litwhiler, the Thompsons have been operating their business illegally for decades, using state forest preserve as mooring, loading and unloading areas. “This involves the private and commercial use of state land, that’s the issue,” Litwhiler said. The order, threatening legal action, demanded that all docks immediately removed from the state-owned boat launch. Private enterprise is not typically allowed on state land, especially forest preserve, Litwhiler said. The Thompson family has owned and operated the Norridgewock Lodge in Beaver River since the 1940s. Thompson said that the ferry service accounts for the bulk of his business, transporting not only people and cars, but also municipal trucks and basic supplies for the residents of the 120 seasonal camps in the town of Webb hamlet. “Beaver River has continued to grow and the public awareness about it has developed some,” he said. In an interview, Thompson described how his father started the ferry about 60 years ago. “They started a barge service, a wooden raft of sorts, that ran people in and out of Beaver River,” he said. “There was no facilities at Beaver River to unload a car or supplies, so they kind of floated things across.” Thompson said that if the ferry service is shut down, his entire business will go under. Litwhiler said that even in the early days, the Thompsons were in violation since almost all of the land around the reservoir has been designated Forest Preserve since the Preserve was created.
WARRENSBURG — Warrensburg High School student Karen VanDusen listened to 11th grade students in her Language Arts Class talk about a provocative Arthur Miller play they’d just read. One student after another debated whether the play’s ending was too melodramatic, or whether the heated, agony-stricken conversation between characters reflected real life. “This was interesting — it was different, not like you’d expect,” Sam Mosher of Thurman said. “Chris and Kate got what they wanted, they got closure,” student Xavier Bell of Warrensburg replied about the play’s ending, full of epiphanies and anguish. “Life doesn’t necessarily work that way, though,” answered Mosher. VanDusen pressed the students to explore the aspects of the characters that the dialogue revealed, and a 10-minute discussion ensued, with students offering observations about the play’s emotional underpinnings. Minutes later the students exited the room, and offered comments about VanDusen, who’s been teaching for 32 years, most all of the time at Warrensburg High. “Ms. Van Dusen asks a lot of questions —she makes you think a lot,” Xavier Bell said. “She encourages everybody to offer their thoughts.” “She’s a lot of fun, but at the same time, she has standards for us to go by,” Mosh-

Those honored were the best in preparing students for college and exceeding state benchmarks on exams. The four schools earned a Bronze medal in the study, the results of which were published in U.S. News’ Dec. 29 issue. The study and award weighed assessments of the performance of those from low-income households. In the Warrensburg School District, 37 percent of students are from low-income households. VanDusen said she and other WCS teachers are committed to teaching with the
assumption that all students want to learn and achieve as much as they can despite their background. “You have to tap into what is relevant to them in their lives and their background, and when you make that connection, they really learn with enthusiasm,” she said.

Stewart’s site plan changes, citizens question move email@example.com WARRENSBURG — Stewart’s Shoppes has decided to retain the old Hudson Headwaters billing office rather than demolish it, in a change of plans for relocating its local convenience store to Stewart Farrar Ave. — a proposal that’s stirred up controversy. Stewart’s executive Tom Lewis said that week that his firm believed that leaving the billing office in place, rather than replacing it, would be more compatible with townspeople’s wishes. Until recent years, the building for decades housed the Warrensburg Post Office. “Leaving the building will have less impact on chang-
ing the neighborhood,” he said. “People on Elm St. are now looking on the old post office, and that won’t change.” He said residents would likely prefer the existing view rather than the back of a Stewart’s store. “This new plan is the direction we’re headed right now,” he continued. This change by Stewart’s has apparently not quelled the controversy over the store’s relocation from lower Main St., however. A substantial number of residents have aligned against the store relocation, citing that the move would mean a commercial operation in a historic district, as well as causing traffic, safety, litter and noise problems

in a primarily residential neighborhood. A dozen or so townspeople opposed to the move attended the Jan. 13 Warrensburg Town Board meeting, but they kept silent as Supervisor Kevin Geraghty recognized their concerns. He noted that the town board hadn’t yet seen any plans, as none had yet been submitted to town officials. “I know you have concerns, but at this time we can’t answer your questions,” he said. Stewart’s has signed a purchase contract with Hudson Headwaters Health Network to buy a 1.2-acre parcel of land on Stewart Farrar Ave. stretching from Elm St. to Main Street, and HHHN is downsizing and moving its billing operations elsewhere. The development of the new plot requires a zoning change by the town board of a segment of the lot facing Elm Street, which is now zoned Professional Multifamily. This classification doesn’t allow stores. The remainder of the plot is zoned Hamlet Commercial, which

Stewart’s new plan for relocating their Warrensburg convenience store includes retaining the former Hudson Headwaters Health Network billing office (left). The construction of a new store at the site requires a zoning change, which is to be ultimately decided by the Warrensburg Town Board. does allow a retail operation. Geraghty said the rezoning issue would first come before the town planning board, which would likely render its recommendation for or against the proposal to the town board, which would then make the ultimate decision. As of Tuesday, the planning board had not received plans from Stewart’s officials, who’ve said they’d be building the new store with an Adirondack-style facade as they did with a replacement store in Lake George. After the Jan. 13 meeting, Warrensburgh Beautification Inc. founder Teresa Whalen said that a store with Adirondack-style features would be out of place in the neighborhood, lined with 19th-century Victorian homes. She said that the store would be more compatible in Stewart’s present location downtown, which is fully commercial, rather than encroaching into an historic
district that includes homes on the National Register of Historic Places, and Richards Library, a stone structure steeped in history. Years ago, Whalen unsuccessfully fought the demolition of the historic Cunningham house at Main and Stewart Farrar ordered by Hudson Headwaters, which replaced the classic Victorian home with a parking lot for their billing operation. She said that Warrensburg Beautification now supported the idea of building tastefully-designed senior citizen housing, with an historic flair, on the Hudson Headwaters site, rather than a Stewart's convenience store. “It’s the perfect location for senior housing with all kinds of services within walking distance,” she said. Whalen said that she’d like to see Stewart’s officials negotiate to buy the Potter ’s Diner property on Main St. adjacent to their existing store. Stewart’s original plan, announced last Spring,
called for constructing a new store on the two combined Main St. parcels and demolishing their old store there. Lewis has said that the price of the Potter ’s Diner property, listed for sale at $500,000, was far too steep for consideration. But a representative of the owners of the property said Wednesday that Stewart’s hadn’t yet made an offer, casual or formal, at any price whatsoever, and the owners would take a close look at any purchase proposal. Stewart’s present plan calls for shifting the new store to the middle of the plot on Stewart Farrar Ave., ditching an idea to construct some adjacent office space, and siting a fuel island diagonally at the intersection of Main and Stewart Farrar. Parking would include 30 or so spaces scattered on the perimeter of the lot, including spaces behind the present Hudson Headwaters billing office.

WARRENSBURG — Separation, divorce or a child-centered legal case is not a single event but a series of transitions that many families experience, experts say. The process is stressful and worsened when there is conflict between the parents, and children are often the innocent bystanders put in the middle of their parents’ conflict, psychologists and therapists have warned. Cornell Cooperative Extension of Warren County offers help through a program for parents dealing with a family breakups and restructuring. Their Parenting Apart program helps parents understand what their children are experiencing and how they can help them through the transition. Emphasis is placed on the parent-child relationship and focuses on what parents can do to promote a healthy adjustment for their children and protect them from the negative effects of parental conflict. The Parenting Apart program is certified by the New York State Unified Court System and classes are offered on a regular basis. The next scheduled Parenting Apart program is set for Feb. 3 and 10, from 6 to 9 p.m. in Queensbury.

WARRENSBURG — When Warrensburg resident Lorrie Persons Cleavland heard of the horrific devastation in Haiti due to the recent earthquake, she was deeply troubled like so many across the world. When the scope of the tragedy unfolded, she immediately sent off a monetary donation — via a text message on her cell phone — to do her part in relieving the suffering of so many Haitians. But as she pushed buttons spelling “HAITI90999” on her cell phone to send off the cyber-donation, she thought of how many people in the North Country, most all of whom have financial stresses, would like to do more than send a nominal amount of money. So as a member of the wired, computer-savvy generation, she logged into her Facebook page. There, she posted an appeal for all her friends — and she blasted them a Facebook message — asking them to send their excess clothing items to her to be shipped to Haiti. By Monday, she had dozens of responses, representing thousands of clothing items. Cleavland is a 1993 graduate of Warrensburg Central School.
“This is one more way we can help out a little more,” she said, noting her effort is called From Warrensburg With Love. Cleavland, who spent from 1993 to 2001 in the U.S. Army, said she plans on utilizing her military connections to get the clothes sent directly to the USS Comfort, which has gone to Haiti to provide an emergency on-ship clinic to treat thousands of the injured. The unexpected popularity of Cleavland’s local Haitian Lorrie Persons Cleavland relief effort has necessitated a collection point other than her home, she said. Clothing to be donated can be dropped off from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday Jan. 21 upstairs at River Street Plaza, she said. “I’m so overwhelmed and grateful for the public support of this local effort,” she said.

WCS school board begins budget process On Jan. 11, the Warrensburg School District's Budget committee began their process of debating and drafting a financial plan for a 2010-11 budget. The school board chose members of the Citizens Advisory Committee, which is empowered to help draft a budget. This year ’s advisory committee consists of: Elaine Cowin, Sheila Mender, Terry Leguire, Michael Currie and Diane Angel. At this panel’s first meeting, school officials said that with the drastic reductions in State Aid and the scheduled pay hikes for employees and increased expenses of their benefits, the school district’s tax levy was projected to increase 14.5 percent unless offsetting reductions are made. Cowin stated the Citizens Advisory Committee is the "sounding board for the community," and she was concerned over potential job cuts, and how $2.2 million dollars of the fund balance could perhaps be used to prevent it from happening. School superintendent Timothy Lawson stated that the lines of communication between the taxpayers and the board need to be open. Currie stated that he thinks the Citizens Advisory Committee has to represent a cross-section of the community, including taxpayers, advising the board to provide "affordable value" in education. Warrensburg School board member Dean Moore suggested that advisory committee members should gather input from the public on what direction the school board should
Corrections and clarifications: • Several corrections and clarifications need to be made due to editing in the Jan. 16 Adirondack Journal. • A photo caption in last week’s Adirondack Journal misidentified a Warrensburg basketball player. It was indeed Mike Curtis flying through the air in a 48-35 victory against Salem on Jan. 8. Curtis scored a three-pointer in the game. • A church was not identified correctly on page 3 of the issue. The photo of local parishioners taking down Christmas decorations was photographed in St. Cecilia’s Roman Catholic Church. • Warrensburg Town Supervisor voluntarily gave up a 1.9 percent pay increase which had been tentatively scheduled, while the other town officers were slated for a 3.5 increase, which was reduced to zero percent increase by the board.
www.adirondack-journal.com take. School board president John MicGlire suggested that citizens not only air criticisms of the budget, but to also provide solutions. School district taxpayers and citizens with questions or concerns are welcome to contact a member of the Citizens Advisory Committee, MicGlire and Moore said. The next budget meeting will be at 6 p.m. Monday Feb. 1 in the high school library.
WARRENSBURG • ADIRONDACK JOURNAL - 5 weekly collections to be sent to the relief efforts in Haiti, considering the devastation that has occurred due to the recent earthquake.

News of church, club and scouting activities, and school events are all welcome.)
Highway chief praised for surplus Warrensburg Town Supervisor Kevin Geraghty announced Jan. 13 that the town Highway Department has spent less than budgeted for the second year in a row, and there is now $50,000 or so extra in their account. The board voted Jan. 13 to transfer the extra money into an equipment account for future use. All other town departments have met their budget limitations, he said. Geraghty praised Superintendent of Highways Ed Pennock for his effective management of expenses, particularly considering that state revenues had decreased substantially. The new town Zoning Administrator & Code Enforcement Officer Christopher Belden was introduced to the citizens attending the meeting. As of Jan. 4, he replaced Matt Securo who resigned recently. Geraghty said that the removal of old play equipment at the town Tot-Lot had been completed, and construction will begin soon on the playground underwritten substantially by a state grant. He also announced that the town is consulting with state Department of Health, which is conducting a study of the corrosion occurring in the town’s water system that is apparently is leading to excess levels of copper. The town skating rink is ready for use now, Geraghty said. The board also scheduled a meeting for 4 p.m. Monday Jan. 25 to review insurance proposals.
North Country Ministry seeks clothing North Country Ministry’s outreach center and its “Baby’s Place” room are located at 3933 Main St. At this time they need girls clothing from Newborn size to 3T.

•100 Years Ago – January, 1910• Ice-cutting resumes as men return to work Ice cutting is in full swing again after the men were unable to work for four days on account of the recent big snow storm we had for two days last week — the snow fell in such quantities that it put a stop to log drawing as well as ice cutting for several days. Everyone was busy cutting out roads and drawing snow away. On Jan. 10, 1910 work began again as usual. Clark Leggett of Chestertown is again drawing logs. David Jones and Andrew Gates of Minerva have their ice houses filled already.

Vaillancourt was formerly with the Grand Trunk railroad but had the misfortune to have both his legs cut off in a railroad accident, yet he is able to get about the country with the aid of his dogs and his agreeable manner has made him many friends in his travels.
Ice racing features world-class horse The Lake George Driving Association has reorganized by electing O.C. Lucia president and Edward J. Worden secretary and treasurer. The horse racing committee consists of E.R. Ziebach, J.N. Hubbell, J.B. Wilson and M.J. Sullivan. A kite-shaped track will be laid on the lake as soon as weather conditions will permit. The first race will probably be between Gypsie Countess, a four-year-old pacing mare owned by Mrs J.C. Knoblauch of Bolton and J.B. Wilson’s John Henry for a purse of $100. Also expected to race are Frank Bryant’s Bell Ringer, M.B. Leland’s Dorothy Dix and George R. Russell’s Woodhaul. (Note: On the last day of January, Bell Ringer broke the world’s record for ice racing and also came in first in all three races, easily winning the purse of $100. A large and enthusiastic crowd of horsemen were on hand to cheer Bell Ringer on.)
Thief taken into custody John Burleigh, who for the past few months has been evading the county officials, was arrested Jan. 13, 1910 by Deputy Dougrety of Glens Falls and is lodged in the city lock-up. Burleigh is alleged to have stolen several hundred pounds of wool from the Warrensburgh Woolen Company (now 18 Milton Ave. location) last October, 1909. Shortly after the robbery had been discovered, Charles Preston of Glens Falls was arrested in connection with the crime. His
testimony implicated Burleigh as the guilty party, but upon police going to his residence, Burleigh was found to have left the city. Preston testified at the trial as having gone to Warrensburgh in company with Burleigh, ignorant of any criminal intentions. He was left to watch the horse and later drove Burleigh and several bags, not knowing what was in them, to Glens Falls, where the wool was disposed of. He was given $5. Preston was later given a suspended sentence by the court.
Victims of typhoid fever Frederick E. Russell, 30, of North Creek died Dec. 28, 1909 of Typhoid Pneumonia at the home of his father, Henry Russell. He leaves a widow. Miss Isabelle Frances Haley, 19, daughter of James Haley of Palmer and niece of Patrick Haley of Warrensburgh died at her home Jan. 11, 1910 after an illness of but a few weeks of Typhoid Fever. Victims of the disease have vastly grown in number this winter.
Horse kills farmer, family mourns John Lynch, a well-known farmer and lumberman of Minerva, while leading a pair of young horses to water Sunday afternoon, Jan. 9, 1910, was kicked in the stomach by one of the animals and died without regaining consciousness, just as the doctor arrived at his side. Besides a widow, he leaves eight children, five boys and three girls, to mourn his untimely loss.
Death in the news Mrs. Jerusha Eldridge, widow of Thomas Eldridge, died Jan. 5, 1910 at the Utica asylum. She was brought back to be buried in the Wevertown Cemetery. Warren Harrington, 75, a lifelong and highly esteemed resident of Warrensburgh, died Jan. 7, 1910. He is survived by a son, Byron Harrington and a daughter, Mrs. Warren Ellsworth. The funeral was at the Baptist Church. Miss Octavia Glassbrook, daughter of George Glassbrook of Warrensburgh died Jan. 8, 1910 of consumption at the home of her uncle, Charles Glassbrook in Chestertown. Mrs. Mary H. Loveland, widow of Daniel Loveland of Johnsburgh, died Jan. 10, 1910 at the home of her son, Hollis I. Loveland of The Glen. She is also survived by two daughters. Harvey Robins, an aged resident of Bakers Mills, formerly of Horicon, died Jan. 13, 1910 of heart disease and dropsy. He was a veteran of the Civil War and has lived in Bakers Mills for about three years. He is survived by a widow and one married daughter.

To the editor: I am writing to voice my husband James' and my strong support for the proposal for Stewart's to move to a better location on Route 9 — at the corner of Stewart Farrar Ave. — as described in this week's Adirondack Journal and referred to in a letter to the editor. I agree with the letter writer that Warrensburg should be careful about future development and retaining the town's character. The Stewart's proposal strikes me as being good for our future and appropriate for its Rte. 9 location. We should be pleased that Stewart's, a proven good neighbor, wants to expand its operation here with a flagship type store. It will certainly increase the property taxes collected for that parcel of land. Also, the sale of the property to Stewart's will give Hudson Headwaters funds to make much-needed improvements to the Warrensburg Health Center. My family uses the health center and I am proud to serve on its board. We are fortunate to have high-quality health care available locally, and it makes sense to support proposals that can improve our health center and keep Hudson Headwaters financially able. Finally, those of us who shop at Stewart's know that its current site can be difficult to enter and leave during peak traffic times, especially during seasons when so many people drive through our community. The parking area is tight. Initially, Stewart's tried to acquire the adjacent diner property for an expansion, but was effectively blocked when others purchased it. Stewart's is making an important business decision to expand its investment in Warrensburg, to provide better service for us and those who travel through this "Gateway to the Adirondacks." I hope that we keep the welcome mat out. Jeannie Cronin, Warrensburg

Ladies latest ‘freak of fashion’ Plain coarse chain stitching that looks very much like the kind children use to decorate their doll’s clothes, is the latest “freak” of fashion, not only for gowns but also for shirtwaists (blouses). Gowns are worked in the simple stitch in braid patterns and in colors. The sleeves are finished in leg of mutton style. (Note…A reader recently wrote to the daily paper that they objected to the overworked, annoying, now common slang word, “frickin’.” Back in the days of World War II, the really hip people managed to work the word “swell” into their every sentence, and in recent decades, “cool” or “sweet.”)
News roundabout In the spring of 1909 more than one million trees were purchased by private owners and approximately 1,000 acres were reforested. Tree planting is one of the best investments that can be made and more plans are being made for this coming year. Alfred C. Stone of Warrensburgh, who has served Warren County as deputy sheriff for the past 15 years and has made a good official, is now engaged in the peaceful pursuit of selling cigars for a Glens Falls manufacturer. A $2,000 pipe organ has been ordered by the Warrensburgh Methodist Episcopal Church from the Estey Organ Company of Brattleboro, Vt. and will be installed by March, 1910 to be in use at Easter time. Mrs. Archie Johnson of Adirondack had a baby boy on Dec. 17, 1909. Mrs. Edward Wilcox of Bolton Landing is also rejoicing over a fine baby boy. Blacksmith Will Barlow has rented Harvey Robbins’ shop in Adirondack. Charles Millington of Bakers Mills was brought home from Long Lake West with a broken leg.
National news: John Wilkes Booth in-law dies Agnes Booth Schoeffel, 63, the former actress and wife of John B. Schoeffel, the Boston theatrical manager, died at her home in Brookline, Mass. In 1867 Agnes Rookes married Junius Brutus Booth Jr., eldest son of Junius Brutus Booth and father of Edwin Booth. He died in 1883 and she later married Mr. Schoeffel. She was a successful actress and starred in many roles on Broadway. (Note…Out of respect for this great lady her obituary did not mention that she was the step-mother of John Wilkes Booth, who in 1865 assassinated President Abraham Lincoln at Ford’s Theatre. Edwin Booth, like his father, is considered to be one of the greatest Shakespearian actors of all time.)

parks along the Schroon River, the removal of junk cars from properties, the request to property owners to paint and upgrade their properties. I feel Stewart’s is an asset to our town, but the company should build a new store at their present location for the following reasons: traffic, safety, school buses — plus the many students who walk to school — and the fact that the area is not conducive to retail trade. Last year a pizza shop was proposed for Hudson St., and this year a Stewart’s for Stewart Farrar Ave. What is next before we get proper zoning for residential, professional, and commercial properties? This is not a win-win situation as stated by Hudson Headwaters. The employees of Hudson Headwaters will be relocating to Queensbury if they can afford the additional costs. Will Stewart’s replace these jobs at the same pay rate? Will they support local deli’s and restaurants for lunches? What will happen to the present Stewart’s — another eyesore in our town? A few years ago Hudson Headwaters put an ugly-looking addition to their Stewart Farrar Ave. building, and purchased a prime Main Street location that became a parking lot eyesore. Now they are shutting down their administrative office and moving those functions of town. Hopefully if they add space to the Main St. location, it will be done in good taste. Jerry Reed, Warrensburg
Let’s listen to our youth! To the editor: As someone who has worked with troubled youth for a very long time, I have seen the effect of adults devaluing what they have to say, choosing instead to lecture them on how much harder it was in "the old days." Our youth today are being subjected to an incredible amount of very competitive school work; drugs and alcohol are everywhere; so many — far too many — youngsters are being raised by one parent. They need support and encouragement, not lectures. So why am I writing now? Because you covered a story about youngsters who advocated for a skate park in Lake George, and offered to help make it a reality. I am simply wondering if, this time, they will be heard — really heard. Irv West, Thurman

OPINION • ADIRONDACK JOURNAL - 7
The iron is hot: Abolish the APA T
he year was 1771, and the American colonies united in their refusal to pay taxes imposed by an English Parliament in which they had no representation. It was this taxation without representation that ultimately laid the groundwork for the American Revolution and our independence as a nation. Flash forward to 1971 and the organization of the Adirondack Park Agency. Here was a tax-subsidized state agency with absolutely no representation from the people they were charged with regulating. Sound familiar? Call it regulation without representation. While the APA Act was later adopted requiring five park residents on the Board of Commissioners, the discontent created in 1971 remained. Today, it may be stronger than ever. Fueled by recent media reports of arbitrary enforcement, hypocritical acts, infiltration by environmental groups, jurisdictional disputes, proposed regulations on everything from boathouses to hunting cabins and astronomical fines threatened against those who disobey these edicts — many are saying enough is enough. The APA needs to be dismantled — and I’m not the only one saying so. The Glens Falls Post-Star made a similar case in a recent thought-provoking editorial, and Assemblywoman Teresa Sayward also just joined the campaign. “People you would never think would have considered it are now talking about it,” Sayward told me in a recent phone interview. “The APA has outlived its usefulness.” The original intent of the agency was not a bad one. The concept was to have a group that could provide tools to local governments so land-use planning was done with the environment in mind. Former chairman of the Adirondack Park Review Board Joe Rota said that without the APA Act, development would have run rampant in the 1970s. “In 1973, there was no planning or zoning in many Adirondack towns, the safeguards included in the act were needed,” he said. But, the Goliath the APA has become — with its strong-arm tactics and seemingly endless state resources — oversteps its motive. It may even be self-defeating in its purpose, because of the discontent and trepidation that exists. “The problem is in their interpretation of the act and then changing it through regulation. The act was only supposed to be modified by the state Legislature,” Rota said, noting stringent waterfront regulations the APA has enacted and a proposal to limit boathouse size. “It’s really just a harassment thing, it has nothing to do with protecting the environment,” Rota said. Indeed, with its $6.2 million annual budget and 72 positions, the agency seems to spend more energy chasing conforming landowners, enacting its own rogue regulations and fighting lengthy court battles than championing the environment. When the agency does decide to act, they take jurisdiction over an entire project instead of simply the portion that triggered the jurisdictional determination, then often force unrealistic standards all their own — standards they seemingly pull from the sky depending on who sits across the table. Black Brook Councilman Howard Aubin, a long-time outspoken critic of the APA and its tactics, believes the agency arbitrarily picks certain cases to pursue and then makes an example for all to see. “They try to scare others into complying with their wishes,” Aubin said. “All it does is create more contempt and anger.” Take, for example, the recent Lowe’s project in Ticonderoga. Although the project was being built in a hamlet with an approved APA land-use plan in place, the APA stepped in and took jurisdiction from town planners because a wetland half the size of a swimming pool existed on the 10-acre parcel and the building was a few feet too high. Instead of making sure the concerns of that tiny wetland were mitigated, the park crusaders opened the entire project to review, miring it in bureaucratic red tape and adding months to its completion and thousands of dollars in expense. The finding? Lowe’s sign was too big. Never mind the building is in the middle of the town’s business district with a Wal-Mart sign the size of a Greyhound bus next door, the APA said Lowe’s should only be al-
STAIRS GOT YOU DOWN? YOU NEED A STAIRLIFT!
lowed a sign smaller than a sheet of plywood. Common sense? It simply doesn’t exist in Raybrook. And oh, how they hate to lose. When the enforcement case between the agency and Essex farmer Sandy Lewis was settled last summer in his favor, the lead APA attorney on the case, Paul Van Cott, swapped malicious e-mails with Lewis. “Mr. Lewis, you are a sociopath,” wrote Van Cott. “Please shut up. Go out and get a shovel and work like a real person on your farm. Enjoy life and be a real farmer. You are very fortunate. Realize that and get a life.” “Go farm. Dig a hole, milk a cow. Enjoy the 1,000 acres of farmland on Lake Champlain that you have,” he wrote, going on to defend the APA's Nov. 9, 2009 settlement with LeRoy Douglas, the Silver Lake resort owner who recently had his APA enforcement case mysteriously dropped. “You won your case,” Van Cott told Lewis. “We respect the law. Go farm.” Van Cott was later “reassigned” from the agency’s enforcement division — but was never formally reprimanded, nor was his pay reduced. I’m not sure if someone in private business would have been afforded the same luxury. These examples only scratch the surface of the oppression inflicted by the park agency, stories I have covered as a journalist here for more than two decades. It is time we the Adirondack people take back our independence — remove the air of impropriety, withdraw the blank check for delivering justice and demand equal enforcement for all. We do that by disbanding the APA and passing its jurisdiction over private land to local governments. We then allow the state Department of Environmental Conservation to do what it is charged with under the state Constitution — protect the public lands in the Adirondacks. They are best suited to do so. And, contrary to the “regulation without representation” thinking that existed in 1971, it is time state lawmakers realize the Adirondack people have both the capability and aptitude to administer environmental regulations, free of the political and environmental bias that exists at the APA. We, after all, have the most to lose. The Adirondack Park Agency has, as Teresa Sayward so eloquently put it, outlived its usefulness.

Readers Poll Do you feel the Adirondack Park Agency should be abolished? Yes! This restrictive agency has not only throttled the local economies in the Adirondacks, but its employees and officials have wrongfully abused their powers or expanded their legislative authority. Enough of this needless harassment of local citizens! Our local planning boards and elected officials can make the necessary decisions on land use matters. No! For decades, the Adirondack Park Agency has protected the environment and the precious natural resources that are vital not only to sustaining the local economies, but for the world. Once development occurs, it can realistically never be reversed. Besides, the APA has become a lot more resident-friendly in recent years, and is far more responsive to public input.

Politics has hampered the county railroad To the editor: In Warren County, the tail wags the dog. It's kind of like a smaller version of the state. Most of the people live in the southeast corner and the political and economic power exists in southeast corner. A person who needs a job, for instance, can find a good one in the southeast corner or struggle elsewhere. Though some of us like to live by ourselves up in the woods, majority rule is the law of the land. So it came as a surprise to have Warren County years ago propose an economic development scheme — the county railroad — that would affect the whole western section of the county. And when the going got rough, it's not a surprise that the county leaders, amongst finger pointing and posturing, retreat to the southeast corner of the county leaving the western section of the county to pick up the pieces of broken dreams and fend for itself during already hard times and increasing county taxes. Unfortunately, that's politics. About ten years ago when I became a conductor on the Upper Hudson River Railroad I was instructed to tell the passengers that we'd be connected to Saratoga next year. I was told that there would be stations at The Glen, Thurman, Stony Creek, Hadley-Luzerne, Corinth and so on down the line that would make for a complete and successful economic engine to propel these towns to a prosperous future. All that Warren County would want in return, I was told, would be the increased sales tax revenues from those towns. The next year found no movement on the great plan but I was told to repeat the mantra "next year." The year after and subsequent years I became an apologist for the county and their lack of follow-through on the plan. Eventually a few things happened and bit-by-bit we made our way south, but not construction of stations. It was a hard sell and in response, from politicians of the southeast corner of the county, came the phrase "train to nowhere" as the railroad tried at least to recoup its operating expenses. The railroad has always had its detractors from the southeast corner of the county. It's been said that the train doesn't have any problems that could not be cured by sending it through Glens Falls, but it was not to be. Still, the railroad has been fun. In the video "America's Great Scenic Railway Journeys," we are the first railroad featured. Our customers call us the best ride on the Hudson River. We call ourselves "the friendliest railroad" and we mean it. Our safety record is excellent. Amtrak conductors are envious of our sound system. We are the favorite fundraiser for Saint Mary-Saint Alphonsus' school in Glens Falls with their "Santa's Christmas Ex-
press". I've also enjoyed meeting all the politicians we've hosted on the train. Betty Little attends with enthusiasm when we hold the charitable "Race the Train" event. Teresa Sayward and Kirsten Gillibrand are not strangers here either. My choice for honorary conductor is Gene Merlino. The n there’s Bill Thomas, a great friend and our new conductor. Of course, without Bill's effort we wouldn't be talking about a railroad. I love watching the river go by from the open car and asking him about the latest APA meeting. I was once a contractor doing stone masonry. Contracting is a tough contact sport with consequences. John and Jerry Riegel are two of the most tenacious contractors I've ever met. These guys have a lot of heart to be bidding to continue their UHRR as evidenced by the 78 other companies contacted who declined to bid . In view of the economy’s difficulties, Warren County recalcitrance and how much more is needed for success of the railroad, I would have run away screaming. John and Jerry are also principals in W.J. Riegel & Sons Rail Solutions, which completed rehabilitation last fall of the tracks from Corinth to Saratoga. Finally, after all these years, the rails are ready to take us to Saratoga. Is it too little, too late? I don't know. It would seem a waste of both a lot of money and a mountain of heroic effort if the long-awaited connection to Saratoga and the main line of America's rails were not to come to fruition now. In railroading, the real money is in freight. Barton's mines in North River is the largest garnet mine in the world. Could their desire to ship more economically and ecologically to their processing plant in New Jersey make the railroad more viable? Also, how about re-opening the mine in Tahawus where there's so much valuable titanium? Railroading is a tough business and the choices involved are a hard calculus. Are we up to it? Time will tell. Some indications are positive. This spring we had a washout just south of Riverside. The county DPW and Riegel Rail Solutions stepped up to handle it while the Board of Supervisors just debated. Clearly, the county has hired capable people who can solve problems they've never seen before. On a subsequent track inspection we met up with Tim Benway of Parks, Recreation and Railroad coming the other way doing his own inspection. Shaking hands with him that day, standing on fresh ballast felt real good. The UHRR is a for-profit corporation. We'll go anywhere we can any time we can at least make our expenses and hopefully make a buck. As we look forward toward an uncertain future, it's incumbent upon us to remember our past and whatever becomes of us, we owe gratitude to the people of Warren County. Thank you. It's been a great ride. Kent Gregson Head Conductor Upper Hudson River Railroad

During those years, Jim and Jeanie stayed up to date with rodeo activities and formed lasting relationships with local ranches and western organizations. Jim was a lifetime member of the Professional Rodeo Cowboy’s Association (PRCA). Jeanie was quite a rider in her own right. You can see many of their rodeo adventures in the framed pictures displayed throughout the store. One of the most memorable adventures was the Cavanagh’s trip to the White House. In 1983, they received an invitation to join President Ronald Reagan for a special rodeo performance in Landover, MD, followed by a western-style barbecue at the White House. Today, Jeanie carries on the day to day practice of running the store as a tribute to Jim’s loving memory. She has streamlined the product line to include a handsome selection of western hats, name brand boots (such as Justin, Durango and Ariat). Jeanie also carries a varied selection of belts, some styles being a favorite with golfers. Rafter J Western World also carries the George Strait line of Wrangler shirts. The product lines come in styles for men, women and children. For those who enjoy “bling”, Rafter J Western World is a proud retailer for Brighton and Montana Silversmith jewelry. But what about that Palomino on the roof? The horse is an homage to Jim’s horse of yesteryear, Pete. It has become a Warrensburg landmark in its own right!
For more information about Rafter J Western Store, please visit their retail store at 3705 Main Street, Warrensburg, NY (Exit 23 off I-87 to Rte. 9 North). Winter store hours (January, February and March) are Friday, Saturday and Sunday 10 am – 3 pm. 56271

Skateboard park moves closer to reality LAKE GEORGE — A public meeting will be held at the Lake George Central High School Monday, Feb. 1 at 7 p.m. to discuss the community’s plans to build a skateboard park. Plans to construct the park in Lake George Village began over a year ago, initiated by several young people in the community and their parents. The Lake George Village Board included funding in their 2009-2010 budget and several fundraisers were held to raise money for the project. Village officials have been working with four interested companies to construct a park and find a suitable location. Representatives of the American Ramp Company, builders of skateboard parks, are expected to attend the meeting and meet with the interested youths to assist in designing
the park, Village Mayor Robert Blais said this week. For details, contact Village Hall at 668-5771. Presently there are approximately seven to ten million skateboarders in the U.S., increasing at a rate of 8 to 10 percent annually, Blais said. There are over 300 skate parks operated by municipalities nationwide. Lake George Town officials have indicated their willingness to transfer a parcel of land to the village to construct a park adjacent to the Village Hall, relieving the town of responsibility for accidents and claims, Blais said. An insurance underwriter’s survey has revealed that skateboard injuries occur far less than other sports — two to five times less often — and are rarely serious or litigious, Blais said. A survey taken in Califor-
nia and Washington, two states with ,many municipal parks, have reported only two claims in 20 years of operation, he said. Properly designed and maintained, a skateboard park expands considerably the recreational opportunities for young adults, he said. Many parks have on-site supervision but many are self-policed by the users themselves, Blais said. “We see more and more skateboarders in our village all the time,” Blais said. “They use our parks, streets, benches, anywhere they can to skate. No different than any other sport, they deserve a safe, organized place to perform their sport and our planned park will be a good beginning for those who skateboard.”

WHAT ’ S H APPENING
Friday Jan. 22
geometry students. “Everything depends on these arcs being correct, so don’t screw up.” The arms of a half dozen students shot up in the air to offer the answer. Minutes later, out in the hallway, his 10th grade students talked about why they enjoy Hull’s class, and how he made complex problems so understandable. “He explains the concepts really well, and he knows his stuff,” Austin DeMarsh said. “Mr. Hull really explains it well and if you don’t ‘get it,’ he’ll take an hour or more to help you figure it out,” Jennifer Ehle said, noting Hull had a reputation of being patient but grading tough. 2008 Warrensburg graduate Emma Prendeville, a freshman at Skidmore college, said Friday in a phone interview that Hull’s teaching techniques were very effective. “When I got to college, I discovered that Mr. Hull got me exponentially more prepared than any other students at Skidmore,” she said. WCS graduate Ben Infantino, a doctor in his final year of residency at Albany Medical Center, also had Hull while in high school, but during the early 1990s. “Mr. Hull walks you through math equations and logical problems, breaking things down into simple terms,” he said, noting that sound logical deductions were now “very important” in his life as a doctor. Prendeville also talked about VanDusen’s ability to connect with people of all backgrounds. “She really challenges people on their personal level to do their best,” she said. “ She helps you assess your own goals, and then challenges you to break down your own boundaries in pursuing your goals — while recognizing each person’s particular circumstances.” Prendeville said VanDusen inspired students to accomplish more than they ever though was possible. “She gets you to realize what you are capable of and gets you to become your own person,” she said. Principal Doug Duell said VanDusen and Hull were representative of the skills and dedication of the entire WCS faculty. “Our teachers make the effort to go above and beyond what’s taught in the classroom,” Duell said. “So many of them spend prep periods and lunches helping students who are struggling — their commitment speaks volumes.” Duell said he was “thrilled” with the U.S. News national honor, and said it served as a validation of what the WCS staff accomplishes in both elementary and high schools. “I’m ecstatic and on Cloud Nine about the award — it’s a great honor,” he said. “The rigor of our curriculum is top notch, and so are our teachers.”
Last week, DEC representatives met with Thompson in an attempt to find a solution. Thompson said he is hoping to get a temporary easement for the upcoming season. He said that in the long run, he would like to see an amendment to the regional Unit Management Plan to allow the ferry service to continue from the present docking site, or from a substitute location. Jeff Bishop, a spokesman for state Sen. James Seward, said the state created the problem when flooding the reservoir and it should make some long-term accommodations for the ferry service. “We have to fix a situation which was created by the state, and end up with a positive outcome,” he said. Thompson agreed that the situation deserves accommodation by the state, particularly since they flooded the reservoir and isolated the community in the first place. “There are all kinds of private businesses on state land,” Thompson said. “A pro shop at a state-owned golf course is a private endeavor, and so is a cafeteria at a state-owned mountain.”

Uptempo game plan works for Cougars North Warren 42, Salem 34 CHESTERTOWN — Despite an offensive show by hot-shooting Salem opponent Austin Eastman and his team’s tight defense inside, North Warren combined smart shooting at critical times and a tough defense of their own to defeat the Generals 42-34 on Jan. 15. Cougar Coach Jason Humiston said his players were executing plays well after sharpening their skills. “We’re rebounding better, eliminating second and third chances for our opponents to take a shot,” he said. “Travis Monroe and Benn Frasier are both doing well on the boards now.” The Cougars double- and triple-teamed six-foot-seven Eastman inside, disrupting the Generals game plan. Cougar point guard Jeff Bennett provided an example of how well the Cougars played on both sides of the ball, as he scored 14 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. Salem had a rally in the third quarter putting them in reach of winning, but the Cougars hung on to their lead, demonstrating their offensive versatility. When the going got tough, Cougar players rose to the challenge. They set a lot of half-court traps, pressuring the General Guards to commit a lot of turnovers, Humiston said. “We pushed the tempo, and our game plan worked,” he said. When Salem pressured the Cougars inside, they responded by taking shots from downtown. Jeff Bennett hit two threepointers, and Joe Aiken and Bryan Beckler hit one each in the crowd-pleaser. Kristian Seeley and Bennett each hit foul shots with under a minute left to secure the victory. Assisting Bennett in the successful campaign were Monroe and Seeley with eight points each, Aiken and Beckler with five each and Frasier with two. Austin Eastman's game-high 22 points led Salem.
Lake George 62, Fort Ann 42 LAKE GEORGE — Rebounding from a bitter one-point loss to Corinth two days earlier, Matt McGowan hit 28 points Jan 15, propelling Lake George past tough contender Fort Ann in front of a home-court crowd. Lake George crushed Fort Ann 44-17, then gave their starters a rest as the game wound down, allowing the Cardinals to rally as they racked up 25 points in the final quarter. Aiding McGowan in the scoring spree were Junior Alex Hladik with 11 points, and Junior Jeff Maldonado, Sophomore Aaron Chambers and Junior J.D. Jenkins with six each — demonstrating the depth of the Warriors’ offensive power. Seniors Cameron Dorman and Chris Kosz also contributed two points, with Junior Erik Jones adding one. The Warriors’ aggressive inside defense forced Fort Ann to shoot from afar, and they did with success. The Cardinals hit nine three-pointers, including five by top Cardinal scorer Jim Shevy — who tallied 17 points and three by Robert Sprague, who totaled 16 points overall. With this game, Lake George was 6-2 in the Adirondack League and 7-3 overall. Fort Ann is 5-3 in the league. Adding to the good vibes in the Lake George gym Jan. 15 was the Warriors’ Junior Varsity victory.
SATURDAY January 23, 2010
Bolton Boys overcome obstacles in key victory Bolton 45, Schroon Lake 40 SCHROON LAKE — Bolton Coach Dave Montero was under a lot of stress Jan. 15 when he heard that his stellar, versatile Sophomore player Mitchell Jordan was sick at home with the flu and his team was facing a game against the athletic Schroon Lake squad on their cramped court. Mitchell represented some big shoes to fill, considering that two days earlier he scored 17 points and grabbed 19 rebounds against Keene. Montero decided to move Senior Matt Peterson down low and draft Junior Tyler Calzada from the bench. The game plan worked. Regardless of the challenges that forced a shift in their game play, Calzada and other Bolton players surpassed expectations, and the squad defeated Schroon Lake 45-40, Coach Dave Montero said Monday. “The kids are focused — they’re working hard, that’s all you can ask,” he said. “it was tough shooting in Schroon Lake’s ‘little box’ — there was no room to shoot from the side, but our players got the job done.” A strong hot-shooting start out of the gate established a winning margin for Bolton against Schroon Lake. Bolton’s 16-11 firstquarter lead provided Bolton with the momentum they needed for the victory. Both teams’ defenses were effective, reining in the goal tally. Schroon Lake’s flypaper 3-2 zone defense presented a challenge for the Eagles. But regardless of the tight defense, Senior Dom Pfau lived up to his reputation, successfully firing off a volley of shots, tallying 20

points to lead Bolton to the win. Eagle Freshman teammate Bill Smith had a solid game, contributing 13 points. Junior Matt Smith, Calzada and Peterson added four each in the Eagles’ balanced game-play. For the neighboring Schroon Lake Wildcats,
Brennan Bush tallied 17 points and 14 rebounds to lead Schroon Lake. Jesse Shaughnessy added 13 points in the solid effort by the Wildcats, which included three three-pointers. Bolton scored four from afar — three by Pfau and one by Bill Smith.
Montero said he was proud of his team’s defense, which has kept their opponents scoring at a minimum recently. With this key win, Bolton’s record improved to 8-4. Schroon Lake won the Junior Varsity matchup.
Argyle 66, Warrensburg 58 WARRENSBURG — The Burghers proved their talent when they played with all cylinders firing Jan. 15 and gave leagueleading Argyle a highly competitive game. However, the Burghers had trouble containing Argyle standout Matt Stevens, who scored 28 points in leading Argyle to their 66-58 win. In a game that was always within reach for the Burghers, the Scots’ hot outside shooting made the critical difference — they hit seven three-pointers. Brendan Frye led the Burghers with 22 points, including one three-pointer, and Mike Perrone contributed 18 including two long-shots. John Joseph added eight, and Ryan Belden scored four. Nick Monroe, Mike Curtis and Hunter Werner added two each in the balanced effort. Argyle remained undefeated in league play.
Corinth 43, Lake George 42 CORINTH — A last-second layup by Corinth’s Fred Jaeger in double-overtime thrilled the Tomahawk’s home-court crowd but disappointed the Lake George Warriors who were defeated 43-42 Jan. 13 in an Adirondack League boys basketball matchup. This stunning finish wasn’t the only drama in the evening. Corinth’s Kevin Tucker kept Corinth in the game, sinking key baskets in the final seconds both in regulation play and the first overtime. Key to Corinth’s success was shutting down league scoring Junior standout Matt McGowan to a mere eight points. While the Tomahawks were focusing on McGowan, however, hotshooting Junior Alex Hladik led Lake George with 17 points. He was aided by classmates Jeff Maldonado with 10 points, and Matt Stover with 3. Junior J.D. Jenkins and Sophomore Aaron Chambers added two each. With the loss, Lake George moved to 5-2 in the league.

SPORTS • ADIRONDACK JOURNAL - 15
Burghers fend off War-Eagles’ challenge
Warrensburg 39, North Warren 36 CHESTERTOWN — Warrensburg and North Warren locked horns in a back-and-forth basketball battle Jan. 13, but the Burghers pulled away in the last quarter to secure a win. Senior Brendan Frye’s elusive offensive moves resulted in 14 points to lead the Burghers in the Adirondack League victory. Junior Ryan Belden contributed 10 and Joseph added eight for Warrensburg. The Burghers opened the game with a 10-0 lead, and the Cougars answered back with a vengeance, outscoring the Burghers nearly twofold to end out the half 18-20. The Cougar rally lasted through the third quarter, during which they outscored the Burghers 13-8, leading by five points for a while. But the Burghers fought back in the fourth quarter in their own 11-5 rally to capture the win, despite a late three-point attempt by Cougar Junior Bryan Beckler which would have tied the game had it bounced off the rim through the net. Beckler led the Cougars with 14 points, followed by Senior Jeff Bennett with 13, Junior Joe Aiken with five, and Sophomore Benn Frasier with four. Aiding in the Burgher victory were Junior Mike Curtis with six points, and Senior Mike Perrone with one. With the win, Warrensburg improved to 5-2 in the league, the same as stellar rival Lake George. North Warren Coach Jason Humiston said he was pleased by the new skills his team members are now demonstrating. “The players aren’t scared of playing ball any more — they’re out there doing a great job and having fun.”
Bolton 46, Keene 39 BOLTON LANDING — The Bolton Central Boys Varsity Basketball team continued its winning ways, utilizing savvy playmaking, versatile offense and stingy defense to defeat Keene 46-39 Jan. 13. In a total team effort, Senior Dom Pfau scored 18 points — including three three-pointers — and Sophomore Mitchell Jordan added 17 points and pulled down 19 rebounds. Junior Matt Smith tallied six points, and Senior Matt Peterson scored three. Bolton established a solid lead in the third quarter, and turned back a resurgence by Keene in the fourth to secure the win.

Cougars show character down the stretch North Warren 40, Salem 35 SALEM — The North Warren Girls Basketball team demonstrated their determination under pressure as they fought off a late-game comeback by Salem and secured a victory Jan. 15. Senior Katherine Andonucci demonstrated her inside power for the Cougars, scoring 16 points in the win which was decided in the final minute. The Cougars’ stonewall defense inside forced outside shooting by the Generals, prompting Salem standout Patricia Russo to score a trio of three-pointers in her way to 10 points. Assisting Andonucci was Senior Kelsey Hamblin with seven points, Sophomore Kiera Warner and Junior Lindsey Meade with six each, Senior Laura Fahey with three and Sophomore Guard Chantal Millington with two. With the win, North Warren improves to 7-4 overall, and 4-4 in the Adirondack League, crushing pre-season predictions by sports writers. Showing the promise of future years’ Varsity teams, the North Warren Junior Varsity continued its string of wins by beating Salem before their elder counterparts took to the floor.
Lake George 53, Fort Ann 37 FORT ANN — The Lake George Warriors sank a flurry of shots in the third quarter to secure a key Adirondack League win Jan. 15 by defeating Fort Ann 53-37. Trailing by one point at halftime, a supercharged Warrior squad responded by scoring 23 points in the third stanza, compared to the Cardinals’ 10. Junior Caroline Murphy took charge for Lake George, scoring a game-high 19 points during the contest, which was more competitive than the final tally suggests. Senior Sara Anderson contributed to the winning effort, recording six points and 11 rebounds. Junior Brittany Baker tallied nine points, Junior Kelly Flaherty 6, Sophomore Amanda Chambers five, Junior Erin Blunt four, and Junior Courtney Mastrodomenico and Sophomore Chelsea Sipowicz, two.

LAKE GEORGE — In the final matchups of a key Adirondack League showdown Jan. 13 between rivals, Burgher Junior Heavyweight Tony Auricchio and his lightweight teammate Freshman Beecher Baker pinned their opponents, securing a 42-34 victory for a veteran Warrensburg squad over the relatively new but very successful Hadley-Luzerne/Lake George team.

Sophomore Jon Vaisey at 112 and Senior Cole Tennant at 152 also tallied pins for Warrensburg, which boosted the Burgher season record to 1-2 in the Adirondack League, and 5-13 overall.

ARGYLE — A balanced, furious scoring assault by Argyle buried Warrensburg in a 69-33 game Jan. 15. Four Argyle players recorded double figures in scoring, and eight lit up the scoreboard in the game held on the Scots’ home floor. Argyle standout Lexi McWhorter scored 17 points and had nine steals in their win. The Scots’ blistering offensive attack resulted in a 24-8 first quarter. Burgher standout eighth-grader Brittany DeCrescente scored 10 of her 12 game points in the second quarter, which was the team’s bright spot, as they outshot Argyle 13-9 in the period. However, the Scots regained their momentum, outscoring the Burghers 20-6 in the third stanza. Assisting DeCrescente were Senior Kaitlin May with six points, Sophomore Ashlie Morehouse and Junior Kate Kuklinski with four, and Senior Kate Taddeo with three and Sophomores Tessa Acuna and Isabella Szabo with two.

However the Cougars answered the challenge by putting up a winning basket and then kept possession of the ball to end the game. Burgher Coach Scott Smith said it was frustrating for his team. “We couldn’t get a critical rebound, then North Warren came up with a big basket at the end,” he said. Cougar Coach P.J. Hogan praised the Burghers and said he was happy with his team’s strengths. “Warrensburg put on a great rally but our players responded,” he said Tuesday. “They make great plays when they have to — they haven’t yet gotten rattled at critical times.” Assisting in the balanced team effort for the Cougars were Seniors Kelsey Hamblin with nine and Katherine Andonucci with eight, Sophomore Cassie Maday with six, and Senior Laura Fahey and Junior Lindsey Meade with two each.
