Cold consequences Record cold freezes pipes, foils furnaces, strands motorists By Thom Randall

By Thom Randall

LAKE GEORGE — Ambulances based in the town of Thurman will soon roll again. The local government voted Jan. 24 to sign a contract with the local emergency squad. The pending agreement ends a year-long squabble between the town board and the the independent Thurman Emergency Medical Services Inc. Up through this week, the town had not contracted for emergency response services with the squad, citing the agency’s inability to provide Advanced Life Support expertise, shifting service costs, sporadic low response rate, uncertain finances, and a lack of cooperation from EMS officials. The Thurman squad has not responded to calls since Jan. 1 because of the lack of town board support — Warrensburg EMS has been handling calls voluntarily. But as of Monday, the conflict

WARRENSBURG — The evening of Jan. 23, frigid Arctic air gripped the region, and area residents were dealing with an element of North Country life they hadn’t fully experienced for years. Glens Falls recorded recordcold temperatures of minus 30 degrees — the lowest since 1945, meteorologists said — and elsewhere across northern Warren County, the mercury in thermometers fell out of sight. No need to tell Logan Tyler of Stony Creek about it. He started out the early morning in his home’s crawlspace thawing out frozen pipes as his thermometer read 27 degrees below zero. Neighbors in Thurman claimed it was as frigid as 40 below. After arriving at his job at Viele Automotive in Warrensburg, Tyler dispatched the firm’s employees for about a dozen calls for jumpstarts due to car batteries that couldn’t turn over engines mired in molasses-like oil. Others with

Warrensburg eyes generating its own power Stec, Gibson: ‘Explore nuclear energy’ By Thom Randall

The Warrensburg Hydropower dam and plant, on the Schroon River in Warrensburg, have been generating 2.9 megawatts of power, about enough energy for 3,000 households, since 1988. Preliminary research has begun to assess opportunities to locate other hydropower facilities along the Schroon River in town. Photo by Thom Randall

WARRENSBURG — While U.S. Rep. Chris Gibson is talking about the potential of constructing a nuclear power plant in the region, some local officials are exploring the idea of hosting a power plant that some citizens say has less environmental drawbacks: a hydropower generation plant. On the urging of Town Supervisor Kevin Geraghty and town board members including Austin Markey, town As-

sessor Greg Klingler has been researching parcels of land along the Schroon River that might be suitable for situating a hydropower plant and dam. Klingler confirmed this week he has been examining sites along the river that have good water flow and could potentially host a hydropower plant. “We have all that water running by that years ago powered many mills in town,” he said. Klingler said he and other town officials have envisioned that with the assistance of grant money and low-interest loans, the town could develop a plant and sell the power

Power From page 1 produced back to the power grid to help offset property taxes. “It’s free and God-given energy, we just have to harness it,” Klingler said. Warrensburg already hosts one hydropower plant. It was built in 1988 on the Schroon River by an upstate New York enterprise. Since then, the plant has been steadily generating 2.9 megawatt-hours of energy, or enough for nearly 3,000 households, according to federal records. Located near the site of the former site of Warrensburg Board & Paper Co., the hydropower dam has backed up millions of gallons of water to form Queen Village Pond. Officials of the state Department of Environmental Conservation backed development of the plant and dam — although it radically changed the local landscape — because the newly-created pond offered good fish and wildlife habitat, they said. Klingler said hydropower plants might be able to be developed along the Schroon without altering the landscape. He said he envisioned a cascade-type installation, where several low-level dams in series could be built to tap into the river ’s power. Klingler said any installation would have to be discussed and reviewed for years by various panels and agencies before any construction could occur. “This could be a just pipe dream or perhaps a reality someday,” he said.

Nuclear power envisioned Development of hydropower is considered by many to be more environmentallyfriendly an idea than nuclear energy, which raises the spectre of the Chernobyl meltdown in the Ukraine. This 1986 disaster killed 50 people, forced an evacuation of 350,000, and is expected to cause a total of 4,000 premature deaths over time, and

spewed nuclear fallout across Europe. But with the increasing demands for energy, and the public fearing the consequences of global warming due to excess carbon dioxide production, nuclear energy’s lack of carbon emissions has prompted talk of developing more nuclear power plants. Gibson has said exploring construction of a nuclear power plant in the 20th Congressional district is among his top priorities — a development he has said would reap substantial economic benefits for the region. With that in mind, he is in the process of recruiting a task force, primarily legislators, to study energy solutions including nuclear power. Gibson has credited Warren County Board of Supervisors Chairman Dan Stec, a former candidate for the seat now held by Gibson, for the idea of pursuing the option of nuclear energy. Stec was once a nuclear engineer for the U.S. Navy. Stec said he’s a nuclear energy advocate. “There are no emissions, and a nuclear reactor can go decades without re-fueling,” he said, countering the concerns about the persistence of toxic nuclear waste. He added the fears over meltdowns or radioactive emissions were not based in reality, as nuclear energy technology has advanced substantially over the past several decades. “The Navy has operated hundreds of nuclear reactors over four decades without a serious incident,” he said, noting France and Great Britain are developing new nuclear power plants. “It can be done safely.” Stec said he also supported hydropower, wind and other environmentally-friendly methods of producing power. “When it comes to energy, we should develop all the technologies,” he said, noting that hydropower development might take less time than designing, permitting and gaining approval of a nuclear plant. “If we have the opportunity to harness hydropower in the Adirondacks, it certainly makes a lot of sense to me.”

Archeology dig returns to Fort William Henry Starbuck to lead excavation LAKE GEORGE — For the first time since 2000, SUNY Adirondack students will join others in an archeological dig at Fort William Henry in Lake George Village. The community college will host an Archeology Field School at the Fort from July 11 through August 19. The dig will be supervised by Dr. David Starbuck of Chestertown,

who has extensive experience in excavating military sites of the 18th century. The return to Fort William Henry will mark a new phase of research and public education which will focus upon the dumps east of the Fort, the remains of barracks buildings, and the prehistoric campsites that lie beneath the ruins of the French and Indian War fortress, Starbuck said this week.

“To come back to the Fort is very exciting,” he said. “This is one of the most important and memorable sites in the French and Indian War, and its a privilege to dig there.” Field schools from SUNY Adirondack first excavated at Fort William Henry between 1997 and 2000 and discovered burned log walls, military dumps, and Native American features both inside and outside the reconstructed fort. The site revealed a wealth of information about the daily lives of soldiers and officers, as well as the native peoples who preceded them. Construction of the timber fort began in 1755, marking the northernmost outpost of the British advance into the interior of North America. Fort William Henry was garrisoned by about 2,000 British Regulars, provincial soldiers and civilians, and the fort came under siege by the French in August of 1757. After the surrender of the fort’s garrison, the massacre that followed was one of the most famous events from the war that is still widely remembered today. The fort was the scene for much of the action in James Fenimore Cooper ’s novel Last of the Mohicans, and has become a popular tourist attraction. Starbuck has supervised digs at Fort William Henry, Fort George and Fort Edward, and students have unearthed artifacts that military historians and archeologists have characterized as important in depicting life in the 1700s. Two-week sessions of three credits each are being offered, and students may take a maximum of six credits. Classes will meet at Fort William Henry from July 11 through 22, July 25 through Aug. 5, and Aug. 8 through 19. Tuition for New York state residents is $142 per credit hour. Tuition for out-ofstate residents is $284 per credit hour. For details, call SUNY Adirondack at 743-2258.

The proposed place for the dam is known as the Spruce Mountain Riffs and there is a drop of about fifty feet which with the erection of a large dam will furnish enormous power for the operation of big mills. The river runs through a valley between towering mountains for several miles. A big lake will be created by backing up the flow of water between the mountains. The proposed site of the dam is about a mile from the Riverside railroad depot and between the towns of Chester and Johnsburgh. This will be a big boon for the north country as well as to give employment to a large number of men. (Note: As we all know, the dam was never built, and this stretch of the Hudson River, site of the annual Whitewater Derby, runs its natural course.)

Noted area surveyor Hiram Philo dies The familiar figure of Hiram Philo with his silk hat, which he wore on all occasions, will be seen no more on the streets of Glens Falls. He died Friday, Feb. 3, 1911 at the age of 87 years after a career of half a century as a surveyor, during which time he surveyed and laid out what is now nearly the entire city of Glens Falls. He was also the surveyor of the old school. He had no C.E. degree but he had practical mathematics under that silk hat and his computations were seldom questioned. Philo conducted a store in 1843-44 at the corner of Glen and Warren streets, Glens Falls and was coroner of Warren County in 1856 at the time of the burning of the John Jay craft on Lake George, when several lives were lost. (Note: The John Jay went out to ply the waters of Lake George in 1850 and was owned by John J. Harris. J. Gale was captain of the boat. In 1856 it took fire in her engine room off Friends Point and struggling to reach shore, struck a rock on Walton Isle and sank. Six lives were lost.) In 1857, Hiram Philo was appointed postmaster at Bolton. Twice he declined a nomination to the state Assembly to represent Warren County. Bolton on Lake George was his home for many years although he later passed his days at 329 Glen St. in Glens Falls where he died. (Note: Hiram Philo learned the civil engineering profession from his father and it was said that 90 per cent of the older deeds and title papers of property in Glens Falls were prepared by him or under his direction. In 1844 Hiram Phi-

Muscles of steel ready for work

This opulent house, which once stood at 46 Elm St. in Warrensburgh, was originally the home of Hart and Theresa Joseph. It was later owned by town Supervisor Frank Smith. It burned in June 1931, and Smith died in the fire. Photo courtesy Steve Parisi archives

lo married Miss Amy Coffin. She was 76 when she died in 1900. Six children survived them.)

Grand village home renovated The handsome home of Hart Joseph on Elm St., Warrensburgh has been undergoing an elaborate redecorating of the interior. The house is one of the finest residences of the village and its unique architecture affords excellent opportunities for carrying on the decorative scheme in beaver board, planned by the builder of the home, H.H. Hill. The finishing work was accomplished by J.F. Burt’s brush.) (Note: Hart Joseph was born in 1862 in Columbus, Ga. He later gave up his job as traveling salesman for the Wallamantic Linen Co. and went to work in 1890 for the Empire Shirt Co. in Warrensburgh. He married the boss’s daughter, Theresa Weinman and they lived for many years in the “handsome home” on Elm St. mentioned above. The house was later sold to Frank Smith who became Warrensburgh supervisor in 1926, a legend in his own time. He was still supervisor in June 1931 when the house burned down and Frank died in the fire. Jack Toney later built a ranch style home and a small house on the lot.)

Jingle bells to Lake George A party of school girls from Warrensburgh enjoyed a sleigh ride to Lake George Saturday Jan. 28, 1911, as the guests of liveryman John H. Pasco and returned home by trolley. The party consisted of Theresa Owens, Leona Sturdevan, Ethel Farrar, Kathleen Halpin, Marguerite Goodman, Alice Keays, Margery McCarthy and Helen Straight. They visited the county court house and were shown through the building by Sheriff T.J. Smith.

Deaths in the news Miss Martha A. McCarthy is dead at South Hartford as a result of excessive grief over the death of her brother, David McCarthy, which occurred a few days ago. Nigel Gleason, 5 weeks old, son of Harold Gleason, died of heart trouble at his home in upper Main St., Warrensburgh. He was buried in the Warrensburgh Cemetery. Jane E. Sheldon, 72, died Friday, Jan. 27, 1911 on River Street, Warrensburgh, at the home of her daughter, Mrs.

A team of horses belonging to Andrew Andrus of Johnsburgh, drew two loads recently, one weighing five tons and 960 pounds, the other five tons and 480 pounds. Considering that one horse is 25 years old and drew a full half of the load, these weighs are remarkable. In other horse news, there was a race on Friends Lake between horses owned by Arthur W. Perry, “Uncle Jim” Wilsey, Charley Mosher and George McCauley. As the horses were well-matched for speed there was a hot race for a good crowd to witness it.

News roundabout The thermometer registered 10 degrees below zero recently at Knowelhurst and 14 below at West Stony Creek. On Jan. 28, 1911 there was a severe blizzard accompanied by a fierce wind. Measles are getting a foothold in North Thurman. There is so much sickness that the schools are closed. Skating on Lake George at Hague is presently a popular sport. Several elk are wintering in Township 28 in the town of Newcomb and they are yarding with deer in a friendly manner. Too many of them are mistaken for deer and shot by hunters. The International Paper Co. has offered to settle for $250 the claim of Berlin Ovitt of Corinth, whose father met death while in the company’s employ. In North Thurman, George Baker has his fine two-yearold colt well broken to harness. James Bennett bought a fine span of three-year-old colts in Garnet. The Kenwell boys from New Jersey and Alabama were in Wevertown for the funeral of their mother, Mrs. Thomas Kenwell. The remains of Abigail Dingman, 85, of Corinth were brought to Stony Creek for burial. Undersheriff Mac R. Smith is making up a collection of photographs of the sheriffs who have served Warren county during the century from 1813 to 1911 to hang on the new sheriff ’s office walls. William Johnsten has started a general store and also a feed store in Bartonville, Horicon. Corn and meal are being retailed for $1.25 per 100 pounds, which is the lowest price in three years. E.A. Knight of Lake George has a used 1908 Ford roadster for sale. It is four cylinder, two passenger with all lamps and gas tank, speedometer, magneto, all good tires and the top is in good order. $250. An old diary tells of a snowstorm in March, 1804 in which four feet of snow fell on the level and some drifts were 10 feet high. It snowed from Friday morning until Sunday morning. It was impossible for children to walk home from school and the horses that were sent for them sunk to their necks. At one point during the storm nine inches fell in 45 minutes.

Why pay town sewer charge? To the editor: The recent bill and notice from the town of Warrensburg concerning the sewer district was very upsetting. My home on Fourth Ave. is connected to the sewer line but capped. I have a septic system in good working order and never needed to undertake the costly construction work to tap into the line. Now, however, whether I can use the service or not, I will be forced to pay $351 per year. This amounts to a sizable tax increase when our taxes are already onerous. I have spoken to Mr. Geraghty and Mr. Alexander, who are both fine gentlemen but both expressed that the town had “no choice.” Mr. Geraghty stated that there had been a public hearing announced in the Post-Star legal section but that no one came forward. But if the letter that came with the bill last week had come before the hearing, there might have been people attending with plenty to say. When a notice is only published in a section rarely read by the general public, it is easy to miss. In addition, even if someone saw a notice about a sewer district, few people, myself included, would even know what that means. If people saw something that said, “The town is proposing to take several hundred dollars from you to pay for something you don’t or can’t use,” I’m sure the turnout would be different. Furthermore, the hearing was called at 4 p.m. — a time anyone lucky enough to still have a job would find difficult. I know I am not the only one affected by this dismal economy, which is especially acute here in the Adirondacks. Three layoffs in 24 months have wiped out any reserves and forced me

to live on far less. Holding on to my house has become a challenge but to sell in this market would be very difficult. I am not the only one dealing with these issues and I am so grateful for what I have — but this sewer tax is almost the last straw. I urge respect and civility but if this affects anyone else, make your concerns known. Ironically, in urging us to vote for the present Town Board in the last election, a resident wrote: ”Just to let you know, Maynard and Brian’s platform changed last night when both claimed they will charge all Warrensburg taxpayers for the water and sewer district, whether you are using it or not. Vote for Kevin Geraghty, John Alexander and Joe Barlow to stop this from happening.” The more things change ... Kathleen O’Day Warrensburg

Kidney deal unconstitutional To the editor: The news of the imprisoned Gladys Scott’s intended “voluntary” kidney donation to her sister as a condition of parole from a Mississippi prison was shocking. Mississippi is part of the U.S.A., where the Eighth Amendment to the Constitution prohibits “cruel and unusual punishment.” Here, prisons are not facilities for mining raw materials for trafficking in human parts.

In the U.S., even in prison, where freedom of movement and behavior are constrained, a person has a right to her physical integrity. She cannot be influenced (coerced) to “voluntarily” donate an organ as a condition of release or for any other purpose. In the U.S., although an imprisoned person loses the property in the fruits of her labor, she retains a property in the fundamental sense in her own person, in her thoughts, religious convictions, and her body. James Madison, author of the “Takings” clause of the Bill of Rights, wrote: “A man has a property in his opinions and the free communication of them. He has a property of peculiar value in his religious opinions, and in the profession and practice dictated by them. He has a property very dear to him in the safety and liberty of his person.” Under protection of “liberty,” even in prison a person cannot be mistreated, endangered, or subject to injury. Americans take pride that an imprisoned person cannot be drugged for psychological manipulation, worked to death or to the point of becoming crippled, or starved. Certainly, a person cannot be constitutionally deprived of an organ as a condition for favorable treatment. And as a “volunteer”? How can a person possibly be a “volunteer” to accept a physically injurious condition upon which her imprisonment will be terminated? Even in prison, personal physical integrity is protected by the Bill of Rights of the U.S. Constitution. Carol W. LaGrasse President, Property Rights Foundation of America Stony Creek

EMS deal From page 1 was history, based on a new agreement approved unanimously by the town board. The deal designates Thurman EMS as the contracted response squad for the town, as it has been in the past. The agreement calls for Thurman EMS to provide Basic Life Support, with the understanding a local ambulance transporting a patient in critical condition will pick up an Advanced Life Support technician from the Warrensburg squad along the route to the hospital. Such an arrangement was routine for years until the squad had its ALS certification revoked last year due to manpower shortage. The new pending contract calls for a sixmonth trial period to see if the arrangement works out, Town Supervisor Evelyn Wood said. The contract is for a sum of $50,000, with $12,500 payable in quarters, with the first installment to be paid in February. The contract bears a performance guaran-

tee to resolve lingering concerns of the board, Wood said. The contract calls for the squad to respond to 80 percent of its Basic Life Support calls in order for the contract to extend beyond its trial period, she said. “The probationary period will make sure everything works out for both parties,” Wood said. “In agreeing to this contract, we’ve let bygones be bygones.” The Thurman emergency squad members met Jan. 23 and ratified the agreement. The vote was nearly unanimous, Thurman EMS president Jim DeSourdy said. “I’m very happy that we’re signing, and looking forward to putting all the problems in the past and working in good relations with the town board,” he said. “We are dedicated to helping the townspeople out.” The agreement also stipulates that the squad remain all-volunteer, and not charge for its services. “I’m very optimistic at this point,” Wood said. “Since I ran for office, I wanted to keep EMS services local all along. The board just wanted to make sure people are protected with adequate medical services, while we

stay within the budget and keep it affordable for the taxpayers.” Warrensburg EMS president Steve Emerson said he wasn’t at all disappointed his agency wasn’t confirmed as the designated ambulance squad at an annual payment of $50,000. “It’s outstanding they were able to salvage their hometown squad,” he said, referring to the talk circulating that Thurman EMS might disband. “This means faster care for patients no matter what,” Emerson added, noting Warrensburg EMT’s will still be responding to most calls, but Thurman personnel will likely get on scene faster, administering vital Basic Life Support. DeSourdy added his squad will be actively working towards reinstating their Advanced Life Support certification. Joyce Eddy said she and hundreds of other Thurman residents will be happy to know the new agreement was reached. She noted a petition signed by 222 Thurman residents was recently submitted to the town board calling for the local squad to provide serv-

Over The Fence We’ve heard that town board members and emergency

ices. Many townspeople had worried about the extra time required — as much as 15 or 20 minutes — for Warrensburg squad members to respond to calls, she said, particularly in the remote areas of Thurman. Eddy knows about how vital quick response is. Her great-grandson Dakota Beadnell was buried alive about two years ago when a sandbank collapsed near his home. Eddy credited not only the family dog for alerting the family members and pawing at the site he was buried, but she also said the Thurman squad’s quick response saved the boy’s life. “Dakota’s alive today because of the services they provided, after getting there so quickly,” she said of the Thurman volunteers. She added that a lot of Thurman residents are elderly and don’t drive, and they are susceptible to various medical crises. “Without quick response and transportation to the hospital, the elderly might just lay there and die,” she said.

squad members are ready to sign a contract to keep our local volunteers responding to medical emergencies. If this works out, everybody in the town will be better protected because they know and trust the squad members, and response times are likely to be a lot quicker than if an out-oftown agency handles the emergency calls. We are entering into “cabin fever” month: February. If you know of anyone alone through the long winter months, give them a call just to say Hello! And when you wake up on Wednesday morning look out your window and see if you can spot the groundhog, commonly known as Mr. Woodchuck, because it’s Groundhog Day on Feb. 2. Also, Valentine’s Day is due to arrive on Feb. 14. Don't forget to send a few extra cards to friends or neighbors who may be in nursing homes at this time. Why are Washington's and Lincoln's birthdays no longer put on the calendars? Lincoln’s is on Feb. 12 and Washington’s Feb. 22. In modern times, the two anniversaries are combined into Presidents' Day. I've been accused of having a “poison pen’ for my comments in the Jan. 15 issue of the Journal, so I've thrown out all my old pens and bought new ones! I apologize to anyone who was hurt over the wording of my column in this issue! But I sure would like to see Thurman go back to the days where neighbors cared about each other and their community and there was not all this bickering going on.

December Town Board meeting notes At the December Thurman town board meeting, the town Youth Commission sought permission to purchase a slush machine for the Summer Youth Program and to use at events held at the local train platform. Supervisor Wood said that purchasing one would have to be put out to bid. Councilman Vasak said that such a machine was expensive, and he wondered how long it would take to recoup its cost. Vasak said stated the town garbage truck was old and needed maintenance, and some of our garbage is left outside in yard in large amounts and said he needed documentation of which households were doing this. Vasak said the town food pantry gets extended use in November and the town may have to establish extended hours. Town Supervisor Evelyn Wood said a workshop will be held to discuss options for garbage pick up. She also is checking on fire alarms for the Town Highway Garage and we may have to establish a prohibition on ATVs on town roads. A Resolution to approve $8,250 in Occupancy Tax funding for 2011 summer concerts was approved by the board. Copies of the two-hour meeting are available at the town hall or online.

Cougars’ experience showcased in battle with Burghers By Thom Randall

Burghers to amplify the scoring advantage. “North Warren’s defensive intensity gave us some real problems,” Burgher Coach Scott Smith said, noting that his team played harder and smarter in the second half, but so did the Cougars. “Their aggressive play on our guards, particularly, gave us trouble.” Cougar Coach P.J. Hogan credited his team’s AAU play for their intensity. Seven of his players are active in the competitive off-season program. “We put a lot of pressure on the ball,” he said. “We attacked the basket tonight and scored in transition.” Some highlights include some clever last-second passes between Kiera Warner and Chantal Millington as they charged toward the basket in traffic. Highlights for Warrensburg included their own defensive scrappiness, and the Burghers’ refusal to give up despite a vast scoring deficit. Down 39-19, and with most all the starters on both teams on the bench, younger Burgher players stepped into the spotlight. Two late-game baskets in quick succession, by Montana

Maigan Baer and Montana Sheridan, boosted the Burgher final tally so it wasn’t an embarrassment. Kiera Warner lead the Cougars with 13 points and seven steals. Chantal Millington tallied 11 points, followed by Margo Broderick with six for points, Lindsay Meade with four points and 10 rebounds. Cassie Maday added three points and Alana Kilcullen chipped in two. For the Burghers, Ashlie Morehouse finished with 12 points, followed by Katelyn Kuklinski with four, Alexa Bryant with three. Smith said he’s hopeful his squad will rebound from the loss in an upcoming rematch. “North Warren is quick and athletic, but we’ll see what happens when we get ‘em on our home court,” he said.

Burgher Girls Basketball Coach Scott Smith offers his players advice on how to combat the Cougars’ aggressive defense during the second half of a showdown Jan. 19 against North Warren.

Fort Ann’s Kara White had 13 points and Kayla Bancroft had 11. CHESTERTOWN — Years of off-season basketball competition paid off Jan. 19 as the North Warren Cougars girls basketball team utilized swift passing, good court perception, and aggressive defense to overcome their counterparts from Warrensburg, a school nearly twice the enrollment. With a strong start, the Warrensburg squad fought successfully to maintain the lead for much of the first quarter. This push featured the solid play of Ashlie Morehouse, who accounted for all the Burgher field goals in the first half. An aggressive Cougar defense, however — including some stretches of full-court press in the following stanza — eroded the Burghers’ confidence and shut down their offense. Warrensburg recorded only one point in the second quarter when the Cougars added adrenaline to their attack. Cougars Kiera Warner and Chantal Millington combined for a productive offensive charge — while their entire team repeatedly swatted, stole and swiped the ball from the

Clinic pledges more victories for local teams By Thom Randall WARRENSBURG — With the swagger of a renegade star football player, an entity known as Bigger, Faster, Stronger has declared a guarantee — that Warrensburg and Lake George high schools will be winning more interscholastic athletic games next year. This guarantee accompanies an all-day clinic, to be held for Warrensburg and Lake George student athletes, set for Sunday Jan. 30 at Warrensburg High School. All students from Warrensburg and Lake

George are urged to attend. The clinic costs $10 beyond a core group which is hosted at no charge. Students should contact their coaches or Warrensburg High School athletic office to register. The clinic incorporates intensive instruction in weight-training techniques as well as motivational talks and strategies for success in athletics. For 28 years, the Bigger, Faster, Stronger organization has been boosting the fortunes of underperforming teams from high schools across the nation, Warrensburg High School teacher and football coach Mike Leonbruno said. “This BFS group helps underdog teams

come out on top,” he said of the organization, based in Salt lake City. Warrensburg High, after signing up for the BFS session, was guaranteed two more football wins, three more basketball wins per season, or 20 percent more overall victories for its athletic teams. Leonbruno as well as lake George Football coach Jeff Bennett and WCS wrestling coach Mark Trapasso, have all been certified as BFS trainers. Leonbruno apparently is one of the BFS group’s success stories. He first underwent BFS training at Queensbury High under the legendary coach John Irion. Leonbruno, quarterback of the team, led his squad in the

late 1990s to the state championship game for Queensbury’s division. Then as a semi-pro football quarterback with the Glens Falls Greenjackets of the North American Football League, Leonbruno took his team in 2010 to one game away from the national finals. He’s served as Warrensburg’s coach for three years. Leonbruno said that the BFS training may be just what Warrensburg athletes need, considering their teams’ lackluster season records in recent years. “I’m hoping we can be one of the BFS organization’s success stories,” he said. “We could use more wins.”

BOLTON LANDING — Johnsburg’s 2011 boys basketball season had been perfect until Jan. 21, when opponent Bolton Central pulled ahead in the final minute of the game and handed the Jaguars their first loss this year. Johnsburg is now 11-1 and Bolton improved to 6-4 after their slim, suspenseful victory over the Jaguars, a game that kept fans energized throughout the contest. The Jaguars led the entire game up through the final minute. Johnsburg enjoyed a 16-4 first quarter advantage, but the tide began to turn late in the second half and Bolton started firing on all cylinders and outshot the Jaguars 17-10 in the second half. “Tonight was a good test and we needed a game like this,” Johnsburg head coach Shawn Taylor said. “This was not a bad loss and it was the time in our season to take it.” The Jaguars have four big games remaining before they look to Sectionals, Taylor said. “I think this will wake us up,” he said. Bolton’s Billy Smith scored a critical long shot to score three of his team’s four total points in the fourth quarter. Johnsburg had a mere two points in the last stanza, a testimony to both teams’ steely defense. Smith finished with 12 total points to lead the Eagles. Mitchell Jordon chipped in with 10 points. Matthew Smith and Dustin French each finished with four points in the win. French also sunk the other three-pointer for Bolton. Taylor Ordway led Johnsburg with 12 points, three of which were three-pointers. Ben Richards put up eight points and Andrew Veldman had seven in the loss. Bolton head coach Steve Showers said he was pleased with the result of Friday’s close contest. “The boys showed a lot of heart tonight,” he said. “We played stellar defense in the second half and I hope we continue to improve on this.”

Chester’s new snowmaker keeps their slope white

Thanks to all who helped with the marathon dance

By Thom Randall

To the editor: Heartfelt thanks go out to the Warrensburg Central High School students, their parents, and school administrators for their recent dance marathon. Thanks also go to the many individuals and businesses in the area that donated cash, goods and services to make the charity event such a success. The North Country Hardship Fund was one of the non-profit organizations that the students picked to be a recipient to benefit from their efforts. The Hardship Fund helps those in crucial need in Warren, Washington, Essex, Hamilton and Saratoga counties. Once again I am blown away with the showing of support in the North Country. The future generation at Warrensburg Central School really got into the spirit of helping others, and their efforts will be touching a lot of lives. Sincere thanks so out to all who participated and the local businesses who donated. Plus, a big thanks to Chip Aldrich from After FX deejay service, who kept them jamming all night!

Then checking in with AAA Northway, Tyler discovered the agency’s phone lines were jammed for hours by callers — AAA told him they were backed up with as many as 300 calls for service, he said. Like other vehicle service enterprises, Barron Dingman of Warrensburg Car Care also reported his employees were responding to jump-starts and vehicles with gummed-up diesel fuel. Lake George Mayor Robert Blais in Lake George said the village Public Works department received a substantial number of calls complaining of no water — but most of the complaints were due to frozen water lines within their own homes. There were, however a few breaks in the village water lines due to shifting frost in pipes that had recently been dug up in road reconstruction projects, said the mayor who’s CHESTERTOWN — Move over, Gore Mountain, Killington and Jiminy Peak. The town of Chester is now producing snow for its skiers, with its own high-capacity, advanced snowmaking machine. The result is that this season, more skiers than ever are gliding down the town’s ski slope, Dynamite Hill. Best of all, residents and visitors alike can enjoy skiing through the winter without worrying about whether it snowed recently. Chester Supervisor Fred Monroe reported Tuesday that as many as 300 or 400 people are skiing down Dynamite Hill on an average busy weekend. “The machine is making a huge amount of snow,” Monroe said, noting the snow cover is up to eight feet thick at the hill’s base. “With snow on the slope, it’s really bringing people into town, plus it’s a great recreational op-

The town of Chester’s new snowmaker portunity for local children.” he said. Town employee Jason Monroe, Fred’s nephew, has been operating the machine, making sure the slope is covered with fresh snow. Much of his work is on his own time, Fred Monroe said. With the machine operating since December, Dynamite Hill was covered with snow during Christmas break when most other ski resorts and slopes were unsuitable for skiing, Fred Monroe said. The result was a good number of visitors coming to town and fun for local families, he said. The snowmaking machine was purchased in June for $14,860 with occu-

been in office for 40 years, a record across New York State. “I don’t remember seeing it this cold,” Blais said. “The change in temperature has been so drastic.” Pyrofax Energy service employees Jim Nash of Warrensburg and Frank Morehouse of Chestertown also dealt with the aftermath of the frigid air. Several of the company service vehicles wouldn’t start, but they got their own trucks moving so they could thaw out customers’ frozen regulators on LP gas tanks, repair overworked furnaces that quit, and thaw out a baseboard heating system in which the recirculating fluid was frozen solid despite anti-freeze. “We’ve really been busy this morning,” Nash said. Linda Walters in the Pyrofax office in Chestertown echoed the point. She said some customers — wary of high prevailing heating fuel prices —had let their outdoor fuel tanks get too low, and condensation in the tanks froze up, blocking the flow of fuel. “The cold temperatures are severe,” she warned, noting that Pyrofax employees were responding to many calls in which homeowners had procrastinated on furnace tune-ups, and their furnaces quit Sunday night under the additional stress.

pancy tax money, Monroe said. The used machine, built by Lenko Snow A.B., was last at work at the ski resort in Aspen Colo., according to Bill Van Zee, a Lenko representative based in Queensbury. He sells and leases snow machines all over the nation and internationally. Dynamite Hill, with about a 600-foot run and 60 feet in vertical drop, is where generations of local children first learned to ski, Monroe said. Monroe ought to know. In the mid-1960s, he was a ski instructor for the town at Dynamite Hill, and that’s where he, too, learned to ski. Monroe said the ski hill, complete with its new snowmaking equipment, offered valuable economic benefits for the Chester community. Many people who’ve been in town this winter — staying in motels and inns, eating in local restaurants — have reported they were attracted by Dynamite Hill and its ever-present blanket of snow, Monroe said.

Devin Scherer of Hometown Oil also said his service employees were helping customers with sluggish fuel in outdoor tanks, repairing furnaces that had quit outright, and refilling empty fuel tanks. One of the furnaces quitting under stress was a boiler at the town of Chester Municipal Center, town supervisor Fred Monroe reported. When he arrived at work Monday, the temperatures in the building had dropped as low as 50 degrees fahrenheit. Carol LaGrasse of Stony Creek said her house got about that cold Sunday night. Her home has no fuel tanks and no connections to electric lines, because she and her husband Peter live “off the grid.” Their home stays warm primarily through solar gain, or the sun’s energy warming their home. When temperatures drop into the teens, they may have to fire up their woodstove intermittently she said, but when it’s below zero, they need to keep the blaze going to keep it comfortable. LaGrasse said she was exhausted Sunday night, so she didn’t bother to get up occasionally during the night and throw chunks of wood on the fire — so the temperature in their house fell to 53 degrees or so by morning when outside it was 25 or 30 below zero. “I was tired and I decided not to feed the fire,” she said.

Plans ramp up for Cabin Fever event By Thom Randall BOLTON LANDING — A social event last year in Bolton in its debut was hailed as a phenomenal success as local folks reconnected with old friends and made new ones while enjoying gourmet food and dancing to live music and dancing. Called the Cabin Fever Cure-All, it was a free fundraiser for the Bolton Free Library that attracted 150 people to enjoy delectable offerings from seven local restaurants. This year, plans are forming to make it even more of a hit, primarily due to a venue change, Librarian Megan Baker said. “Our Cabin Fever event is a stress-reliever party with music, dancing and food,” she said of the community celebration, which is planned for Feb. 19, from 6 to 10 p.m. Instead of jamming into the Parish Hall of St. Sacrement Episcopal Church, attendees will be hosted in the Town of Bolton Highway Garage at 87 Finkle Rd. For those who might envision the garage as a lowly site for such a party, Baker noted the garage has lots of room and it’s wellheated, an idea that doubtlessly sounds good during a week the temperatures plunged below zero. On Jan. 19, a core group of volunteers gathered to plan the event. They confirmed an idea to have a tropical theme. “Both spirits and expectations are high for this year ’s event,” Baker said, noting that last year ’s edition raised $1,500 for the li-

brary. This year ’s goal is higher. For 2011, not only will restaurants prepare dishes with a tropical theme, but attendees will likely be recruited to dance the macarena and the limbo, she said. The decorations are also likely to reflect a South Pacific influence, she added. The party will include large cut-outs of tropically attired people that attendees can stick their heads in for photographs, Library Trustee Emma Calautti said. “We also hope to have a large sand dune and beach toys for the children, and adults, too, for those who want to show off their sand castle skills!” she said. Entertainment will be provided by Bill Campbell and the "Blue Moon" band. Volunteer chefs will also be bringing dishes of their homemade fare to share. The event includes raffles and 50-50 drawings. Donations will be accepted at the door. The more ambitious plans mean additional volunteer help is needed, according to an email Calautti issued this week. Volunteers are still needed for set up on the night prior to the event, and for clean-up the following morning. People are also needed to staff the donation table. But decor items reflecting the tropical theme are also being sought — such as beach towels, sand toys,travel posters, and sea shells. Those who can help with the above are urged to call Baker at 644-2233 or Calautti at 644-3128, or contact her at

Good and bad diet fads A

s anyone who’s ever attempted dieting knows, advice on weight loss comes from every corner. Friends might swear by the latest dieting trend while family members may be just as adamantly convinced the trend doesn’t have merit. So what’s true and what’s false? Simply put, combining a healthy diet with regular exercise is the best way to lose weight and keep that weight off. While most adults are fully aware of that fact, that doesn’t stop them from finding the latest fad and letting it dictate their eating habits for days or even weeks. For those about to diet, consider the following good and bad diet fads.

The Good • Portion control: Many diets emphasize the importance of portion control. Research has indicated it’s not just what we eat that causes weight gain, but how much we’re eating as well. In a study in the American Journal of Public Health, researchers found cookies are 700 percent bigger than the suggested USDA standards. And it’s not just cookies that are much bigger than recommended, as our servings of pasta (480 percent), muffins (333 percent) and bagels (195 percent) are much bigger than they should be. While not all diets that promote portion control are necessarily healthy, portion control on its own is a healthy way for everyone to approach their daily diet. • Lifestyle change: Individuals who want to lose weight

should look for dietary tips that promote a change in lifestyle and not just changes in diet. Look for diets that don’t have a timeline, promoting fast weight loss in “X” amount of weeks. A diet that promotes a longterm commitment to eating healthy foods while also encouraging daily exercise is one that’s likely going to be more successful and beneficial than one that promises significant weight loss in a short period of time.

The Bad • One food can do it all: Nearly every dieter has heard of a diet that promises you can eat all you want of a specific food and still lose weight so long as that’s all you’re eating. However, focusing on a specific food is certain to deprive dieters of nutrients they sorely need. Cutting out entire food groups means dieters won’t enjoy a balanced diet. Also, dieters will begin to crave the foods they’re not getting, which could lead to bingeing. Another side effect to one-food diets is that certain foods can cause some unenjoyable side effects, including dehydration or gastrointestinal problems. Look for balance in a diet, which should eliminate one-food diets from consideration. • Misguided vegetarianism: While vegetarianism isn’t bad, dieters often apply it incorrectly. When applied correctly, a vegetarian diet has been linked to all sorts of benefits, including lower rates of obesity and heart disease. However, dieters often mistakenly eat a vegetarian diet with a foundation

of cheese and pasta, which can actually cause weight gain. Carbohydrate-rich foods, while they might be vegetarian, will likely result in weight added as opposed to lost. When adopting a vegetarian diet, be sure to include whole grains and fruit and eat foods like nuts, beans or even tofu to ensure you’re getting enough protein. • Bye-bye, carbohydrates: Arguably no diet is more popular than the one that advocates eliminating carbohydrates. This is problematic, especially for those who want to combine their healthy diet with exercise. Carbohydrates are ideal foods for boosting energy, which dieters will need if they want to exercise regularly. Whole-grain breads, oatmeal and brown rice are all beneficial carbohydrate sources. For those desiring to eliminate some forms of carbs from their diets, eliminate white bread and white rice, as those are low in nutrients. When it comes to dieting, there are certainly plenty of options touting incredible weight loss in short periods of time. But dieters should always look for healthy ways to lose weight and keep it off, which often includes some combination of a well-balanced diet that promotes moderation.

Know the cholesterol content of your food


ndividuals are often told to monitor their cholesterol consumption. This can be difficult if people don’t know how much cholesterol their daily diet contains. People with heart problems or at risk for heart problems or those with high cholesterol will often be instructed by a doctor to make dietary changes to reduce cholesterol consumption. Generally the guideline is to take in 300 or fewer milligrams per day of dietary cholesterol. Cholesterol is only found in foods that come from animals. This means that fruits, vegetables and grains will not have any cholesterol, unless they are mixed with animal products, such as in baked or processed goods. To help people make smarter choices about foods and to learn the cholesterol content of many of their favorite choices, here’s a list of the cholesterol content of common menu items:

Training tips to avoid injury while working out a few workouts what works best for them. It’s good to push oneself, but don’t push too hard and increase the risk of injury. • Work with a trainer. Personal trainers can help beginners immensely. Trainers can teach beginners how to use machines and stretch properly and can answer any questions beginners commonly have. Trainers can be expensive, but many gyms offer one or two free personal training sessions to new members. Once those free sessions are finished, individuals can continue with the trainer or choose to go on their own. But if the free sessions are made available, beginners should take advantage of those sessions to help get their fitness routine off on the right foot. • Fewer repetitions, more sets. A common mistake when beginning an exercise regimen is to dive right in without really knowing the ins and outs of a routine. For example, many people load up on repetitions, feeling the more reps, the more ef-

fective a workout will be. However, beginners often find fewer reps but additional sets is more effective. So instead of doing four sets of 10 reps, do five sets of eight reps. This might seem too small to make a difference, but beginners often tire near the end of a set, and doing fewer reps per set can help them avoid fatigue and make the most of each repetition and set. • Stay hydrated. Drink water throughout an exercise regimen to remain hydrated. Maintaining proper fluid levels helps avoid cramping and dehydration, which can bring their own batch of painful side effects, including nausea and heart palpitations. For those who workout in the early morning, be sure to drink water before working out to overcome any dehydration that may have occurred while asleep. For those who workout after work, be sure to drink water throughout the day so the body is fully hydrated when the time comes to hit the gym.

Easing the Burn: Recognize Causes of Heartburn


ith exercise on the minds of many, it’s important to go over a few pointers to ensure the next trip to the gym does not end in injury. • Be careful of “no pain, no gain.” Many beginners feel their workout isn’t working if it’s not hurting. While mild pain is to be expected, it’s up to the individual to determine if the pain is indicative of something bigger. Swelling and extreme stiffness are not normal, and individuals should cease working out if either of those problems arise. For beginners, expect muscle soreness after the first couple of workouts. This can be painful, but it’s often a result of working muscles that have not been taxed in quite awhile. This pain should subside, and once the muscles grow accustomed to being worked, the pain, stiffness or soreness should no longer appear after a workout (this may take a workout or two for the muscles to get used to it). If the pain persists, do not continue to exercise through an injury. Any persistent pain should be discussed with a physician. • Know your limits. Beginners need to be especially aware of their exercise limits. Initially, they shouldn’t attempt to do exercises their bodies can’t handle. Lifting too much weight is common for beginners. Ideally, lift smaller amounts when beginning a workout to get the motion of the exercise down pat. As workouts progress, a person can then gradually add weight. Many fitness professionals feel adding 10 percent each week is a safe and effective approach, but individuals will know after


fter a big meal, many people experience a feeling of burning behind the breastbone that seems to extend all the way back up to the mouth. Although it feels like the heart and lungs are on fire, heartburn actually has nothing to do with the heart at all. Heartburn can be a symptom of GERD, or Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease. More than 60 million American adults experience acid reflux and heartburn at least once a month. Roughly 25 million adults suffer daily from heartburn and experience severe refluxes. When stomach acid rises and comes in contact with the esophagus, or the tube in the throat that connects the mouth to the stomach, it can cause irritation. This irritation creates a burning sensation. Sometimes a foul taste occurs in the mouth, and sometimes it can feel like food is at the back of the throat. Heartburn can be caused by a few different factors. • A person may eat a meal that simply causes stomach upset. Sometimes spicy foods or rich meals can be the culprit. • When the lower esophageal sphincter muscle (LES) is weakened or relaxed, it cannot do its job of keeping stomach acid inside of the stomach. • Pressure on the stomach, such as tight clothing or bending over, may result in acid reflux. • Stress can cause an over-abundance of stomach acid and a slowing down of the emptying of the stomach. • Eating large meals right before bedtime. Oftentimes, making dietary changes or modifica-

tions to habits can alleviate heartburn. Reducing the consumption of fatty, fried foods or foods that can weaken the LES may alleviate symptoms. Individuals who have very frequent heartburn and acid reflux may need to take medication to help their symptoms. Proton-pump inhibitors are a series of medications that reduce the production of gastric acid. There are other ways to alleviate symptoms. • Eat smaller meals and more slowly. • Don't eat large meals before bed. Wait at least three hours after eating to retire for the night.

The flu vaccine — Protection from the flu, peace of mind for you


s a parent, you do everything you can to protect your children. Buckle them up in the car. Watch them closely when they’re in the water. Teach them to look both ways when they cross the street. Warn them not to talk to strangers. How about making sure they get the flu

vaccine? The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend everyone 6 months and older get the flu vaccine every year. That includes children from tiny to teen. Getting the flu vaccine is the best way to prevent flu. For children younger than 5 years of age and those with chronic health

conditions, like asthma and diabetes, getting the flu vaccine is especially important to avoid serious flu complications like pneumonia, which can lead to hospitalization and even death. About 20,000 children younger than 5 years old are hospitalized each year from flu complications. Flu can also make some health conditions worse. Babies younger than 6 months are too young to get the flu vaccine, but they are at higher risk for complications and death from flu. Because of this, it is important that family members and other people that care for young infants get vaccinated to help ensure that they don’t transmit the infection to them. “It’s important that all family members and caregivers get the flu vaccine to ‘cocoon’ infants,” said Dr. Anne Schuchat, Assistant Surgeon General of the U.S. Public Health Service and CDC’s Director of the National Cent er for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases. The 2009 H1N1 flu (so named for the year the virus was identified) hit children particularly hard last year, and that virus is expected to be around again this year. The 2010-11 flu vaccine includes protection against the 2009 H1N1 flu virus, along with two seasonal flu viruses expected to circulate this season. There are two kinds of flu vaccine: the flu shot and a flu nasal spray vaccine. These vaccines cannot give you the flu because they are made from killed or weakened influenza viruses. Flu vaccines have an excellent safety record. Hundreds of millions of Americans have safely gotten flu vaccines

and most people generally do not experience any side effects after getting a flu vaccine. When side effects do occur, they are generally mild and include redness and soreness at the injection site for the flu shot, and occasionally sore throat, runny nose and rarely fever after the nasal spray vaccine. While these symptoms can be uncomfortable and inconvenient, these symptoms are mild and resolve quickly when compared to a bad case of the flu. “Parents who take their children to get the flu vaccine can rest a little easier knowing they are helping to protect their family against a potentially serious illness,” Schuchat said. “And of course, parents should be vaccinated, too.” Children should get the flu vaccine as soon as possible to ensure early protection for this flu season. Most children 6 months through 8 years who get the flu vaccine for the first time will need to get two doses of the vaccine, the second dose (booster dose) 4 weeks after the first. Healthy children ages 2 and older can get the nasal-spray vaccine instead of a flu shot. Talk to your child’s doctor or nurse if you’re not sure. Once vaccinated, the body needs two weeks to produce antibodies for protection against the flu. The vaccine does not provide protection against non-flu viruses that can cause colds and other respiratory illnesses. Check with your doctor, pharmacist, or local health clinic about getting you and your child vaccinated from flu. For more information about the dangers of flu and the benefits of the flu vaccine, talk to your doctor or nurse, visit

What to look for in an exercise facility W

hen a person decides to make a commitment to a healthier lifestyle, that decision is often accompanied by the decision to join a gym. Gyms can vary greatly. Some cater to specific activities, such as kick boxing or martial arts, while others are more general in scope, with weight training and cardiovascular equipment and access to personal trainers. Regardless of which type of facility an individual is hoping to join, certain external factors go a long way to dictating whether or not joining the gym will be a success. When looking for an exercise facility, the following items should be taken into consideration before signing an agreement. • Location: Even the most ardent of gym rats would say it helps a great deal to find a gym that’s conveniently located. If the gym is too far away or getting there requires sitting in heavy traffic, then men and women are much less likely to visit the gym as they would be to visit a gym that’s right down the street or easy to get to. When looking for an exercise facility, find one that’s either close to home or close to the office (preferably both if you work close to home). For those who work far away from home, the gym’s location should ideally be closer to home to promote working out on weekends when you won’t be anywhere near the office. • Fellow members: Certain gyms might prove intimidating or uncomfortable because of their existing members. While the members themselves might be warm and friendly, those new to working out might be intimidated if everyone else in the building looks like a professional bodybuilder. In addition, women sometimes feel more comfortable working out at an all-female gym. • Cost: The cost of gym membership is arguably the foremost consideration for many people when choosing a gym, especially since the economy remains largely unpredictable. When looking for an exercise facility, inquire about membership costs as well as any initiation fees you may incur or discounts you may be eligible for. Because of the struggling economy, many gyms have waived or are open to waiving sign-up or initiation costs, which can cost in the hundreds of dollars at some facilities. Also, when discussing cost with a facility employee, ask if there are family discounts or if memberships are reduced if fees are paid all at once instead of every month. For example, a gym might charge $600 annually ($50 per month), but give a 10 percent discount to any members who pay a year ’s worth of dues at sign-up. When discussing membership costs, keep in mind many gyms are open to negotiation,

but prospective members must initiate any such negotiations. • Membership rights: Many gyms boast different types of memberships. Some memberships are all-access and allow members to use the weight room, sauna, pool, etc. Other memberships might cost less but not offer as much access. For instance, a basic membership might offer access to the weight room and cardiovascular machines, but not to the pool or sauna. Choosing the right membership depends on the individual. For those who don’t swim and won’t enjoy a post-workout steam, then the basic membership can save money while still meeting all of the desired needs. For those who want all-access, the more expensive membership might be more up your alley. Whichever membership is the better fit, be sure the membership agreement lists your rights as a member before signing any paperwork. • Hours of operation: Some people prefer to workout before going to work, while others want to sleep in and exercise after a day at the office. Individuals should find a gym that fits their schedules and workout preferences. It’s also good to inquire about holiday hours of operation. A good gym won’t shut down entirely during a holiday, and instead stay open on at least a limited schedule. • Equipment: Even those new to working out should be able to tell if equipment is up-to-date or outdated. A gym with outdated equipment is best to avoid, as older equipment could increase risk of injury. A gym with the latest equipment is a gym that likely emphasizes giving its members the best possible environment in which to workout, and that’s important for all fitness enthusiasts, but especially those who are just beginning.

Encouraging Kids to Live a More Active Lifestyle U

nlike their parents, today's kids often forgo sandlot baseball or games of tag for much more sedentary fare like video games or surfing the Internet. While video games and Internet access aren't lacking in value, many parents would prefer their kids be more active. Though it can be difficult to get kids off the couch, there are ways parents can help their kids live and embrace a more active lifestyle, which can have benefits both now and down the road. • Make it a team effort. Parents who are concerned their kids aren't getting enough daily exercise should ask themselves if they're getting enough exercise themselves. Kids aren't the only ones who need daily exercise. A good way to encourage kids is to join them. Make daily physical activity a team effort. Kids don't have to join Mom and Dad at the gym. Instead, go for a nightly walk after dinner, or make time to play catch in the yard. Kids often take cues from their parents even if their parents aren't aware. Parents who exercise every day are much more likely to have kids who exercise every day as well. Set a positive example for kids and include them in your own fitness routine whenever the opportunity arises. • Minimize television time. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends older kids watch no more than two hours of television per day. But as any parent knows, most

kids average much more than two hours of television per day. To decrease that tube time, parents can take televisions out of their kids' bedrooms, instead putting televisions only in the common rooms which will also allow parents to more closely monitor what their kids are watching. • Encourage extracurricular activities. While parents might find it hard to believe, today's kids, even with all the video games and additional gadgets, still get bored. Boredom might be contributing to sedentary lifestyles. To combat boredom, parents should encourage extracurricular activities that get kids off the couch. Whether it's participating in team sports, joining the local or school theater program or even getting a job, parents should encourage kids to do more after school than come home and turn on the television or play video games. • Emphasize activity instead of exercise. Many adults associate exercise with going to the gym or running on the treadmill, both of which are tough to get excited about. Kids might be equally indifferent and less enthusiastic about exercise. Instead of emphasizing exercise, encourage kids to be active. Being active doesn't have to entail playing a sport or doing any calisthenics. Instead, an active lifestyle is one that's not spent idling the hours away lounging. Encourage kids to get outdoors and pursue interests other than video games or television shows.

How to Lose Weight After 50 F

ew people relish the steps needed to drop a few pounds. But losing weight when you are younger may be easier than it is for those 50 and older. That's because metabolic changes and habits may interfere with weight loss. As we age the body goes through different changes. For many, metabolism might just slow down. That means whatever is eaten could take longer to be digested and burned off. However, metabolism isn't directly linked to age It has to do more with muscle mass. It is well known that muscle burns fat. The more muscle a person has, generally the less fat there is and whatever fat is present is burned more quickly. As one ages, muscle mass may decrease. This contributes to metabolism changes, often resulting in more fat. There are different types of fat that can affect one's health. Visceral fat: This is the most dangerous fat that surrounds the internal organs. It can be hard to get rid of this fat without healthy eating and exercise.


Subcutaneous fat: This fat is directly underneath the skin. Although it can be unsightly and cause a person to be self-conscious, it isn't as dangerous medically and is the easier fat to remove with diet and exercise. To help ensure health and promote greater weight loss, here are some tips to employ. • Get walking: Walking is a low-impact cardiovascular exercise that is beneficial to most people. In addition to cardiovascular exercise, walking can help to reduce stress. • Eat smaller portions: As we age we may simply need less food to fill us up. Try scaling back on portions. • Do toning exercises: Muscle strengthening exercises can keep muscles strong, which can promote overall strength and better posture. It can also help to keep bones and joints aligned to reduce injury. • Make gradual changes: Sudden changes could be jarring to the body. Plus, they're harder to accept than gradual changes. A little change here and there is most effective.

Ode to a tiny green tree frog I

have a tiny green tree frog and it brings me luck. Laugh if you like, but it’s true. In fact, the tiny green tree frog of which I speak has had mystical powers since it was first bestowed upon me by my daughter at the tender age of three. I discovered the little plastic replica jammed between two seat cushions in my pickup, in between a candy wrapper and a wad of discarded Gummy Bears. “Sweetheart, you forgot your toy,” I said, holding out the dimesized frog to her as she disembarked her flowered car seat. She took it, turned it slowly in front of her face, then offered it back. “I want you to have it, Daddy,” she said sweetly, her long eyelashes batting away beneath a woolen winter cap like Cindy Lou Who from Dr. Suess’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas. If that sequence of events doesn’t bestow mystical power on an inanimate object, I’m not sure what will. So, I slipped the tattered tiny green tree frog into a front shirt pocket and plopped a kiss on my precious daughter ’s forehead. “I shall cherish it forever,” I told her, not fully compre-

hending the complete significance of the statement. From that moment forward, the luck emanating from that tiny green tree frog has been nothing short of miraculous. Because of its near supernatural abilities, however, I have saved the tiny green tree frog’s mystical power for only the specialist of occasions. Like hunting season. Oh, and brook trout season. And there was that one golf tournament with my Dad, but I am sworn to secrecy on that so as to uphold the sanctity of the match. Anyway ... the tiny green tree frog began proving its mystical amphibian powers the very first hunting season I carried it. The year was 2006, and I entered deer season with no more expectation than any other year. I had failed to consider, though, one serious ace in my corner. Or, more aptly, a shirtpocket hitchhiker in the form of a tiny green tree frog. As luck would have it, the season turned out to be my best ever, starting with a slammer 140-class 11-pointer I shot with my muzzlestuffer. I would put a lot more bucks on the carpet over the years with that tiny green tree frog in my shirtpocket, the most recent being the monster 8-pointer I shot in Manitoba this year. The frog brought similar luck on the ponds, affording me several four and even a few five-pound class brookies.

OUTDOORS • ADIRONDACK JOURNAL - 27 Afterward, it became tradition to photograph the tiny green tree frog with my trophy — perched atop fin, feather or fur, whichever happened to be the quarry of the day. Needless to say, my magic tree frog quickly became the envy This plastic tree frog, shown here perched of my chums at atop a deer antler, has been my good luck hunting camp. charm since my daughter gave it to me five So much so, years ago. they began trying to mimic the good luck charm, showing up at camp with assorted items of their own. There was Harold with his worn teddy bear from preschool. Mike and his collection of Star Wars bobble head figures. Then Bob showed up wearing his youngest son’s water wings. Oh how we chuckled. My ex-wife even reported a late-night prowler going through her curbside trash receptacle, hoping my daughter had discarded something lucky ... anything. A lollipop stick. A hair tie. A half eaten apple. Anything. All he got, though, was a backside full of rock salt. I knew teaching her to shoot would come in handy someday. Lucky for me, it was after we parted ways. But, back to the lucky frog. I’m not sure how the tiny green tree frog first landed in my daughter ’s possession. Perhaps it was once an enchanted galleon passed from generation to generation, originating in the time of powerful witchcraft and sorcery, of King Arthur and Camelot. Too much of a stretch, you think? Well, more likely it has something to do with the fact that I’ve carried it with me during almost every outdoor pursuit since my daughter gave it to me five years ago. I do know one thing, though. It definitely has more mystical power than those foolish water wings. John Gereau is managing editor of Denton Publications and an avid outdoorsman. He can be reached at

Ramblin’ on ice and snow


ast Monday morning, Saranac Lake again earned a mention in the national news for achieving a temperature of 36 degrees F below zero. Unfortunately, on that particular day, International Falls, Minnesota, at 37 degrees F below was the coldest spot in the country. Some folks didn’t understand, but having a reputation for being the Nation’s Icebox, holds a special honor among many communities located along the continental ice belt. “In Saranac Lake this morning, customers flocked to the local diner, and begged the waitress to spill scalding hot coffee on their laps!” Although Saranac Lake persistently ranks among the coldest spots in the nation, Old Forge actually has the record for attaining New York state’s biggest chill, where on Feb. 18, 1979, local thermometers registered a stunning 52 degrees F below zero. The Adirondacks have long been considered a land of extremes, where the winters are colder, the snow is deeper, and ice persists far longer than it does in other comparable locales. “There's one good thing about snow, it makes your lawn look as nice as your neighbor's…” Clyde Moore

Locals take a unique pride in their stubborn and unrelenting ability to bare the worst weather that winter can bring. Every local has a favorite “How cold is it” joke. Cold is our element and it blows with the winter's wind. “It’s so cold in Saranac Lake, cops tazer their donuts first, so they don’t chip a tooth.” While scientists have labeled our species homo sapiens, or ‘thinking man’, current day anthropologists suggest a better choice for the strange race inhabiting the Adirondacks may be homo glacialis, or ‘frozen man’. It may work, since on some days, it’s just too cold to think But cold weather does help at times, because we can tell from a great distance, whether our neighbors are still breathing. And, we can both see and hear our own breath. Those who have lived with the cold have learned to make due, and those that haven’t; have long since moved away. “The winter with its snow and ice is not an evil to be corrected. It is as it was designed and made to be…”Henry David Thoreau For many years, ice ranked second only to timber exports, in terms of the most valuable natural resource in the Adirondacks. Ice harvesting remained a viable profession well into the 20th century, until the advent of modern refrigeration. Ice has a way of preserving and persevering. Today, in nearly any mountain community, there’s often somebody who can show you the way to local ‘ice caves’, where winter ’s accumulation regularly lasts all year ‘round. In my youth, I often explored ice caves located at the base of Cobble Hill in Elizabethtown, where even in mid-summer; the cave’s floor remained covered with a thick black ice. The steady dripping from condensation often made the slanted cave entrances very slippery, due to a combination of slimy moss and gooey lichens.

Forest Oddities: A nondescript snowdrift atop an old stump was transformed into a bald eagle, when viewed from the proper angle. The natural world produces a variety of unique patterns and shapes, that await our discovery, such as the one pictured below, left, found by Marshall Fish, the late gunsmith from Westport. Fish claimed he found the stick that looks like a doe near the Boreas River in 1946. He had a huge collection of such finds, that included fungi, rocks, logs and even odd shaped buck racks. If you have a similar anomaly that you'd like to share, please send it to Joe Hackett, Box 424, Lake Placid 12946 or email it to: On more than one occasion, we were forced to exit these caves via a Chinese Ladder, clambering over each other ’s backs and shoulders in an effort to scramble to the surface. Ice caves can typically be found on the shaded, north sides of a mountain, where sun rarely visits and ice has compacted amidst a jumble of boulders, as it falls in great sheets from the sheer cliffs above. It is not uncommon to find ice caves in places like Indian Pass, the Lower Ausable Lake, the Cascades and Pitchoff. Ice Cave Mountain is located in the southern Adirondacks and the ice caves on Chimney Mountain in the Siamese Ponds Wilderness are very well known. In the Adirondacks, it is generally accepted that our summers are shorter, typically arriving by the Fourth of July 4th and departing by the end of the week. Often, folks don’t even realize there has been a change of season until the spectacular fall foliage arrives on July 6th. “It was so cold in Saranac Lake last

night, that people wondered why we didn’t just open a nearby hydrant and let the Ice Palace build itself,” volunteer palace builder. Locals have come to accept that on really cold mornings, it’s simply not safe to blink, or your eyes will freeze shut. For those who have lived many winters, and grew up with the cold, the weather is often warmed by the memories of skiing and skating, sliding and snow forts. Although fond memories often help to chase away the chill, sometimes, the cold wins. “I like these cold, gray winter days. Days like these let you savor a bad mood.” Calvin & Hobbes, “Some days even my lucky rocketship underpants won't help.” Embrace the chill, it’s the only sure way to warm the winter ’s atmosphere.

Local Government

New county leader reveals objectives Stec: Property tax relief a fundamental need By Thom Randall QUEENSBURY — Controlling government costs, seeking ways to cut bureaucracy and developing the county’s economy are now top priorities for county government, new Board of Supervisors Chairman Dan Stec said in a recent interview. Friday Jan. 21, the county Board of Supervisors took action on one of these top priorities. They voted unanimously to send a letter to state executives and legislators urging them to reduce costly mandates to local governments as they pursue a property tax cap. Stec said that capping property taxes while continuing to demand that local government provide a myriad of services was dysfunctional. “The state can’t continue to shift all the costs to counties then complain about property taxes and try to cap them,” he said, noting that 70 to 80 percent of the county budget was due to state-mandated programs. “This situation has got to come to an end.” Stec said that with a new governor and some new legislators now in office, the situation might change. “Hopefully, with a new set of eyes and ears now in Albany, it’s an opportunity to bring home the message that the state can’t fix its financial problems by passing them down to the counties.” Stec said that controlling costs to taxpayers and containing the scope of govern-

ment were two continuing goals of his. “We’re now on a much better path over the past two years, and we should continue the work we started under Fred Monroe’s leadership — finding all the ways we can of cutting costs — its extremely important in the prevailing economy. Monroe, who is town of Chester’s supervisor, was Stec’s predecessor leading the county. He, Stec and county Budget Officer Kevin Geraghty led a lengthy campaign over the last 18 months to balance the county’s budget by cutting waste and consolidating county job positions. The result was the lowest tax increase in more than a decade, although revenues have fallen dramatically. Also a top priority for the county in 2011 is choosing a new railroad operator and negotiating with the company to do all that’s feasible to develop freight and tourist traffic — both vital to job creation and economic development, Stec said. “We need to do all we can to attract people to come to our area to both work and play,” he said. The last two objectives Stec identified for the upcoming year are also about county infrastructure. The Exit 18/Main Street reconstruction project, under development for 15 years or so, may finally be completed this next year, and it’s likely to boost retail development in the area, Stec said. “This is a big project for both Queensbury and Glens Falls,” he said.

Dan Stec talks to the media shortly after taking office as the new Chairman of the Warren County Board of Supervisors. Stec recently identified his leading objectives to start off his reign. Photo by Thom Randall

The last objective Stec mentioned for the Board of Supervisors in the upcoming year is to oversee the management of the festival space in the West Brook Environmental Park. “We need to make sure we do all we can to maximize the use of the festival space at Gaslight Village,“ Stec said, noting the park development will be boosting tourism as well as providing vital environmental benefits. “The festival space will be a great asset in hosting various events.”

North Country representatives split on repeal vote Fast Fact: Three Democrats join GOP lawmakers in voting to repeal By Chris Morris QUEENSBURY — The U.S. House of Representatives passed a measure last week to repeal President Barack Obama's health care reform legislation, enacted in 2010 following a heated nationwide debate. The two congressmen representing northern New York were split on the vote, with one voting for repeal and the other voting in opposition. In New York's 20th Congressional District, Republican Chris Gibson said the massive health care bill harms small businesses and steps on personal freedoms. Speaking on the House floor before casting his vote, Gibson stressed that health care reform is necessary, but the current legislation does more harm than good. "Health care costs were 4.7 percent of the GDP in 1960 – they are over 17 percent today," he said. "We must drive down costs. But the bill passed last year is not the answer. We end up with higher costs, higher premiums, higher taxes, and more burdensome regulation – and more big government at a time when we should be consolidating."

Gibson says that repealing what he calls a costly piece of legislation isn't the end of the health care reform debate – noting that late last week a House resolution instructed four committees to begin work on replacing the bill. "Ultimately, I believe the fate of this repeal effort will hinge on the content and quality of the replacement bill," he said. U.S. Rep. Scott Gibson So far, Republicans are pushing a replacement bill that features insurance reform aimed at creating wider access to options and choices, medical liability reform, coverage for preexisting conditions and an assurance that coverage won't be dropped when an individual gets sick. Gibson said that approach to health care reform is "patient-centered." Democrat Bill Owens represents New York 23rd Congressional District and voted against the GOP repeal bill. He pointed to a recent poll by ABC News and the Washington Post that shows Americans are split on the bill, but most are against a full-on repeal of the legislation. Owens believes that the current effort to repeal last year's bill is counterproductive. But he doesn't argue that lawmakers need to parse through the legislation and make some necessary changes.

Local schools take a stand against bullying epidemic By Lindsay Yandon JOHNSBURG — Schools from across the region converged at Johnsburg Central School (JCS) earlier this month for a presentation by John Halligan, who lost his son to suicide after incessant bullying. Thirteen-year-old Ryan took his own life, Oct. 7, 2003 after being ridiculed and humiliated by peers at school and on-line. JCS introduced their Anti-BullyingCommittee (ABC) last year as a means to raise awareness about the bullying epidemic that is sweeping the nation and has shown up in local schools. Halligan’s presentation was one of the monthly events sponsored at JCS. Thomas Wilson, a sophomore at JCS, spearheaded the committee after admitting that, he too, is a victim of bullying. He believes that presentations like Halligan’s are starting to make a difference. “I will always remember the reactions that I saw after his talk,” he said. “Two girls were standing outside the gym in tears after hearing what he had to say.” ABC faculty member Julie Wolfe was also impressed with the student reaction to Halligan. “You could have heard a pin drop in the

gymnasium,” she said. “The students were so respectful and interested in what he was saying.” Students and faculty alike from Indian Lake, Long Lake, Bolton, Minerva and Newcomb Central Schools shared in Halligan’s presentation. “Mr. Halligan and his family will never be the same after losing Ryan,” said Noelle Short, teacher at Long Lake Central School. “Their bravery to share their story is evidence that something positive that can really make a difference can come from a tragic experience.” Jodie Seymour of Johnsburg Central School also spoke of the important roll that adults can play in fighting the bullying problem among young people. “Let us, the adults in their lives, be the models for tolerance and acceptance,” she said. Regardless of their grade level, gender or background experience with bullying, students wholeheartedly agreed that Halligan’s powerful words caught their attention, according to Short. “Halligan’s message is a reminder that our words do have consequences,” said Wolfe. In memory of his son, Halligan has spearheaded the Vermont Bully Prevention

In Essex County

News of the Week

Prayers to continue at county board By Jon Alexander ELIZABETHTOWN — The practice of praying before the monthly meeting of the full Essex County Board of Supervisors will continue. The regular – and markedly Christian – prayer sessions have been a tradition of the county board for decades. The practice has come under some recent criticism from a few local residents who argue it entangles a secular government with Christianity. Gesturing to a placard in the 150-year-old board chambers reading “In God We Trust,” county Chairman Randy Douglas said Jan. 18 the monthly prayer is ap-

Cathy Moses benedictions regularly accompany federal and state events, including the annual State of the State and State of the Union addresses. Earlier this month, Catholic and Jewish religious leaders offered prayers prior to Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s State of the State address.

Cuomo to GOP: Be ready for layoffs By Jonathan Alexander ALBANY — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo hosted a closed-door dinner with Senate Republicans Tuesday, warning them that his upcoming executive budget will include layoffs of state employees and significant spending cuts. State Sen. Betty Little's spokesman Dan MacEntee confirmed Thursday that the newly-elected Democrat promised a significant amount of state downsizing in order to combat a projected $11 billion deficit in the coming year. "The governor spoke at the dinner with Senate Republicans about this year's budget being very difficult and that layoffs will be necessary to close the budget deficit," MacEntee said. Though Cuomo didn't divulge exactly how many jobs may be targeted in his upcoming state executive draft budget, several sources within the administration have told re-

porters that between 10,000 and 15,000 jobs could be on the chopping block. If enacted, it would be the largest downsizing of state government since his father's massive cuts in the early 1990s. Cuomo has also indicated that he will be looking to slash the amount the state spends on Medicaid and aid to school districts as well. At around $54 billion annually, Medicaid is the largest state expense, while school aid ranks second among appropriations. Even with the exact number of jobs on the line unknown, union representatives, like Public Employee Federation President Ken Brynien, are already scrambling to respond to the news. "Any suggestion of reducing the state workforce by 10,000 to 15,000 would not only cripple the delivery of essential services, it would have a chilling effect on the state's economy and undermine the state's fragile recovery," he said.

Crown Point’s lone grocery store closes Owner says bridge closure cost him $50,000 By Fred Herbst CROWN POINT — Crown Point’s lone grocery store is closing. Crown Point Discount Grocery, a community fixture for eight years, will close Feb. 1 — for now. John Sullivan, who owns the store with his wife Marion, hopes to reopen in the future. “This doesn’t mean we’re going to disappear forever,” Sullivan said. “We have a store here in Crown Point that is all set up and ready to go. Maybe we’ll be back in the spring.” Sullivan blamed the store closing on

the poor national economy and the closure of the Champlain Bridge that eliminated most of his Vermont customers. “The bridge pulled $50,000 right out of my back pocket,” he said. “It has been devastating to our business. “The overall economy with the bridge was just too much,” Sullivan said. “We could have made it with the economy, but not with the bridge down.” The Champlain Bridge in Crown Point linked New York and Vermont. It was closed in October 2009 when engineers deemed it unsafe. The bridge, which served about 4,000 vehicles a day, has been replaced by a ferry while a new structure is being built. The new span is

scheduled to open this October. The store receives financial assistance from a state fund set up specifically for businesses hurt by the bridge closure. “You can get up to $10,000 a quarter,” Sullivan said of the state aid. “It doesn’t cover our loses and it doesn’t come fast enough.” The store originally had six full- and part-time workers, but was down to just two part-time employees, plus the Sullivans, for the last six months. The store, located at 2616 Main St., offered groceries, produce, a deli with lunch meats, subs and sandwiches and fresh doughnuts. The closing leaves the community with two convenience stores, Hap’s Market and Crown Point Mart and Cafe.

Adk Club and Resort project entering final approval stage APA will have 60 days to vote following hearing By Brian Mann TUPPER LAKE — After years of public review, town hall meetings, mediation sessions and negotiations, the Adirondack Club and Resort project is entering its final phase. An adjudicatory hearing will begin soon, possibly as early as next month, overseen by administrative law judge Daniel O’Connell. When that hearing is finished, the Adirondack Park Agency will have 60 days to vote on whether the 600-unit resort should be given a permit. But with the day of reckoning for the project drawing ever closer, some officials are expressing concern that the final vote will be rushed through – even though the project has been in the works for some seven years now. Cecil Wray sits on the state Adirondack Park Agency’s Board of Commis-

sioners. “I think it would be extremely unfortunate if when that time comes, we are put under any time pressure,” he said. “I really don’t want to see after four years of waiting to be told there is a time clock running and you have to fish or cut bait. Given the importance of this thing, I think we need plenty of time to consider whatever is finally put before us.” That concern was echoed by Commissioner Frank Mezzano, who recalled being buried with information at the last minute when voting on other large and complex projects. “The sheets of paper came in boxes, regular file big boxes that we had to somehow plow through,” he said. The APA’s deliberations will be complicated by the fact that commissioners have been instructed to limit the amount of information they’re gathering from the media about the Big Tupper resort – so that their decision will


be based on the official record produced by the hearing. They also can’t deliberate amongst themselves ahead of time. One more wrinkle is that many of the commissioners on the APA board weren’t around when this project was first introduced. Here’s board member Lani Ulrich: “The members at the table now are dramatically different now than the members who were here when this first came before us,” she said. The 60 day clock required under APA regulations for a final decision could be extended. But that could only happen with the consent of the developer, Michael Foxman, who’s seeking the permits. The discovery phase that led up to the adjudicatory hearing closed last Friday. The hearing itself could begin as early as next month. The testimony and the evidence offered into the record is expected to be highly technical and contentious.

Regulation prohibits feeding of black bears By Chris Morris Contributing Writer ADIRONDACKS — Officials with the state Department of Environmental Conservation announced this week a new regulation prohibiting the intentional or unintentional feeding of black bears. The regulation comes after an increase in the number of conflicts between bears and people statewide. Environmental experts note that the population of black bears in New York has been on the rise in recent years. That increased population has been accompanied by a growing number of interactions between bears and humans. DEC has long prohibited the intentional feeding of bears in proximity to certain locations. This new regulation outlaws the incidental feeding of bears statewide. When bears become problematic in a specific area, DEC can now require landowners to remove things like birdfeeders from their property. In general, DEC recommends that homeowners discontinue bird feeding activity in the spring, when bears begin emerging from their dens and natural food sources are lacking.

Budget to target school aid, prisons By Chris Morris Contributing Writer ALBANY — ANew York Post article published Jan. 24 says Gov. Andrew Cuomo's executive budget will feature substantial cuts to school and municipal aid. The Post's state editor, Fred Dicker, penned Monday's piece, which also predicts prison closures across the state and layoffs within the state Department of Correctional Services. According to Dicker, a source close to the budget preparations said the governor has – quote – "slashed aid to local governments and, more importantly, state school aid." Those same sources told the Post that prisons will be closed in Cuomo's budget – a move that will most certainly draw the ire of lawmakers from the North Country. Cuomo's much-anticipated executive budget is due Feb. 1.

House fire extinguished Sunday evening CHESTERTOWN — Flames fought the plummeting temperatures and Chestertown fire fighters saved a three-story home last from fire the evening of Jan. 23. The blaze resulted from a chimney fire that spread throughout the home, according to Chestertown Fire Chief Jack Crossman. Two residents were in the home when the fire stared, but were unharmed. Firefighters from Chestertown, Horicon and Pottersville, along with the North Warren Emergency Squad responded to the call, which was placed around 6 p.m.

Cocaine investigation lands an arrest QUEENSBURY — Following an investigation involving the illegal sale of crack cocaine in the Queensbury area, the Warren County Sheriff ’s Office Narcotics Enforcement Unit arrested Jeffery L. Carson Jr, 29, of Schenectady for Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the 3rd degree, a class B Felony. Carson was arrested in the Jeffery L. parking lot of the McDonalds restaurant Carson Jr. on Corinth Road in Queensbury. At the time of his arrest he was found in possession of approximately one ounce of crack cocaine and approximately $2,000. Carson was arraigned in the Queensbury Town Court and committed to the Warren County Correctional Facility in lieu of $100,000 cash or $200,000 bail bond. This case remains under investigation and additional arrests are expected.

Johnsburg to receive new ambulance JOHNSBURG — The Johnsburg Emergency Squad are the thankful recipients of a $118,750 federal grant, which they will use toward the purchase of a new ambulance. U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer announced the grant award this week as part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Assistance to Firefighters grant program. The grant will be matched by 5 percent from the squad's annual fundraising campaign, according to Kelly Nessle, Johnsburg EMS board member. The new ambulance will replace one that was purchased in 1998 and has accrued more than 145,000 miles, she said. Johnsburg’s call volume usually experiences a higher quantity in the winter months, due to ski injuries at Gore Mountain Ski Center, according to Sterling Goodspeed, Johnsburg supervisor. So, this award came at the perfect time.

‘Holiday Match’ raises $1.28 million SARATOGA SPRINGS — Knowing that their cash contributions through Stewart’s Shops would be doubled, the public responded over the past two months with a spirit of generosity, the convenience store reported this week. Stewart’s Shops’ annual Holiday Match program has set records in its 24th year of collecting donations for local children’s charities, Stewarts officials announced this week. Stewart’s customers contributed $640,000. Stewart’s Shops is matching that amount, with a total of $1.28 million to be distributed to local children’s charitable organizations, according to Stewart’s Foundation President Susan Dake. The Holiday Match program relies on customers making contributions from Thanksgiving through Christmas in the 328 Stewart’s Shops located upstate New York and in western Vermont. The money raised benefits children’s organizations directly within the communities where Stewart’s Shops are located. Children’s charities can still apply for funding from the Holiday Match Program.

Businesses urged to sign up soon for career fair QUEENSBURY — Businesses are now being advised to register for Job Discovery 2011, as the event’s initial sign-up deadline is approaching. This year ’s edition of the region’s premier job fair will be held March 17 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at SUNY Adirondack. Organizers are now registering local businesses to participate. The cost is $160 for those who register before Jan. 31, and $170 afterwards through Feb. 19. The fee includes a professional booth, advertising and more. Those interested are encouraged to register early because this event annually sells out. This is the 23rd annual edition of Job Discovery. The event will shift focus this year to providing information on careers and how to best prepare for them — as well as job offerings. Local businesses traditionally use this event to both help fill immediate openings

and network with potential candidates for future consideration, organizers said. Those jobs can be full-time or part-time, seasonal or year-round, temporary or permanent, they said. Training facilities to prepare individuals for future employment are also encouraged to register. This event attracts an average of more than 2,000 attendees each year. Individuals come to participate in job search and careerrelated workshops, have their resumes reviewed, discover job-search resources and services, and visit with over 60 exhibitors to discuss work opportunities and find out more about local employers. The event is free and open to all, whether a person is seeking employment, a job change, or exploring career opportunities.

DEC to close Region 5 dispatch station in Ray Brook By Chris Morris RAY BROOK — The state Department of Environmental Conservation aims to officially close down its dispatch office in Ray Brook by the beginning of next month. DEC spokeswoman Lori Severino said all seven dispatchers currently stationed in Ray Brook will be moved to the new Albany office over the course of the next six months. Four of those dispatchers will be gone by Feb. 1, Severino said. Plans have been in the works for several years to move DEC dispatch services to Albany, Severino added. She notes that officials have long expressed a desire for one centralized dispatch center. The Albany office opened in 2008. “As of Feb. 1, four of the employees from Ray Brook will

be moving to Albany, then there will be three left for the pilot portion of it — just to make sure everything runs smoothly,” Severino said. “The hope is that within the next six months, the last three dispatchers will be given the opportunity to move to Albany if they so choose. But the Ray Brook dispatch center will be closing.” Day-to-day operations at the DEC Region 5 offices in Ray Brook will not be affected by the closing of the dispatch center, Severino says. “The regional office will still be there,” she said. “People can still call Ray Brook during regular business hours. But the 24/7 dispatch operations will be all out of Albany, then they’ll radio out to whatever region they get calls from.” According to Severino, the state is looking to save money through the consolidation of dispatching services. She noted DEC will utilize Radio Over Internet Protocol

to manage dispatch calls. “Ray Brook was using an older system, so we won’t have to continue maintaining those old systems,” Severino said. “Everyone will be located out of the one unit and we won’t need staff in separate offices. It will save money.” DEC has suffered repeated cuts due to New York’s ongoing fiscal crisis. Severino said this is just one of many steps taken by DEC officials to cut costs and save money. DEC’s Region 5 serves Clinton, Franklin, Essex, Hamilton, Fulton, Saratoga, Warren and Washington counties with offices in Ray Brook, Northville and Warrensburg. Region 5 includes three-quarters of the Adirondack Park; over 2 million acres of Forest Preserve land; 395,706 acres of conservation easement lands; 60,380 acres of state forests lands; 856 miles of Wild, Scenic and Recreational Rivers; and 6,600 acres of wildlife management lands.

LOST & FOUND PLEASE HELP! My children’s hearts are broken. Our Sunshine has been missing since November 23, 2010, the same day that our dog Shady staggered into our home bleeding from the head and mouth, dying from wounds inflicted by a hollow shell bullet. Its is bad enough to loose a member of our family but to never find the body of the other is cruel. Please help us put Sunshine to rest humanely with closure for my children and I, and so we know, at least in death she has the dignity she rightfully deserves. Sunshine is a german shepard/golden retreiver mix. Her color is brindle and she has a bobbed tail. We hope and pray still a friendly dog. Please help us have a New Year miracle. If you know of her whereabouts, please call us at 802-349-3489. Last seen at Silver Hill Road, Witherbee on the morning of November 23rd.
