ATHOL — The Thurman ambulance squad, struggling for survival since recently losing its annual subsidy from the town board, is now on the verge of dissolving, the agency’s top officer said Tuesday Jan. 29. Thurman Emergency Medical Services President Jean Coulard said the squad’s board of directors had been polled Monday night and five of the seven had agreed to liquidate assets to pay remaining bills, quit operating, and shut down their agency. A formal meeting was scheduled to take place Tuesday night to formalize the decision, she said. “I’m getting the paperwork together now to dissolve the corporation,” Coulard said mid-Tuesday, noting that the financial support from the town had been vital to the agency’s ability to operate. “For all intents and purposes, we’re closed — There’s no money left,” she said. “It’s very sad that the

Wrestling tourney this Saturday in Warrensburg Schools participating in this tournament are: Albany Academy, Berne-Knox-Westerlo, Cambridge, Duanesburg, Fort Ann, Green Tech, Maple Hill, Rensselaer, Salem, Schoharie, Waterford, Whitehall, and Warrensburg. Although athletes are competing for individual titles, the favored schools for top team scores are: Duanesburg, Salem and defending champ Berne-Knox-Westerlo, according to area coaches. Wrestlers from Warrensburg High School expected to be top contenders include Nick Nedelcu, Denver Berry, and Trevor Baker, although in years past some “dark horse” local contenders have accomplished upset victories. The team from Whitehall High features returning Section II champions Al Aubin and John Diekel. Salem High is armed with returning champions Luke Fronhofer, Carter Merecki, And Tyler Morris. Admission for the Warrensburg tournament is $6, a fee set by Section II officials. Trapasso said that high school wrestlers from all over the region have competed all year with the goal of participating in this tournament. “Everyone wrestles for this moment, and this is how athletes get to the Glens Falls Civic Center,” he said. The top four wrestlers in each weight class in Saturday’s Class 3 tournament in Warrensburg will earn a berth in the Section II tournament scheduled for Feb. 8 and Feb. 9 at the civic center. The Section II champions will be invited to compete in the New York State high school wrestling tournament to be held Feb. 22 and Feb. 23 at the Times Union Center.

By Thom Randall WARRENSBURG — Area sports fans will be witnessing talented athletes from five counties contend for championship titles here Saturday, Feb. 2 as Warrensburg High School hosts the Section II Division 2 Class 3 Wrestling Tournament. The wrestlers will be representing 13 schools from a region stretching from Duanesburg to Cambridge and from Westerlo to Whitehall. Dozens of wrestlers will be competing in this annual competition, formerly known as the Section II Class D Tournament, Warrensburg High School Wrestling Coach Mark Trapasso said. “Having Warrensburg chosen to host this regional tournament is a tremendous honor,” he said. “We urge all area sports fans to attend and show their support of the top area wrestlers and our local wrestling program.” Warrensburg hosted the tournament in 2011. Trapasso said Warrensburg was chosen as the site for 2013 due to solid fan support in the past and the ample size of the gymnasium — which can accommodate three wrestling matches ongoing simultaneously while four large bleachers are extended. The dedicated and efficient work of volunteers, he said, has also prompted Warrensburg to be chosen. Volunteers help set up the equipment, staff the concessions, and accomplish an array of other tasks, Trapasso said. “We have volunteers who know how to run a tournament, and we’ve proven we can draw people in, fill the stands — and we’re located right off the Northway.”

This free performance is the second installment of the Stony Creek Library Winter Concert Series. Winner of the prestigious "New Folk" competition at the Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas, Jerling has been praised as a "songwriter's songwriter." He composes in styles influenced by a wealth of American music, folk idiom fans have noted. Boston Globe critic Scott Alarik has said Michael Jerling of Saratoga is now getting the attention he has long deserved. “With a subtle but encyclopedic command of American styles and rhythms, a captivating melodic sense and incisive, clever lyrics, he is as supple a song craftsman as any riding the folk boards today, Alarik said.

Memories of Walt Grishkot shared at L.G. Winter Carnival gala By Thom Randall LAKE GEORGE — As dozens of revelers partied Friday, Jan. 25 at Fort William Henry Resort during the Lake George Winter Carnival Gala dinner-dance, Joan Grishkot joined several friends to reminisce about festivals of years past. The event was dedicated to Joan and her late husband Walter Grishkot for their years of dedicated work organizing and publicizing the Winter Carnival as well as other events and attractions in Warren County. Joan Grishkot joined long-time carnival organizers Hal Halliday and Nancy Nichols and area writer-reporter Maury Thompson, author of a biography of her husband, to share memories. Walt Grishkot died in May 2011 at the age of 85. Accompanied by a lot of laughs, the four recalled Walter ’s many publicity stunts and staged events to promote the Lake George Winter Carnival — or Grishkot’s signature event, the Adirondack Balloon Festival. Halliday recounted how Grishkot arranged for two Army tanks to roll down Beach Road in a mock race during one early Lake George Winter Carnival. “They were only crawling at one-half miles per hour, but we got national news coverage out of it,” he said. Joan Grishkot recalled how her husband teamed up with Glens Falls clothing store owner Jerry Solomon — later to become the area’s U.S. Congressional representative — to stage a fashion show. The conclusion, Nichols said with a hearty laugh, featured a suave model in a full-length mink coat suddenly exposing herself to the audience, showing off a risque gold lame bathing suit and a lot of flesh. Hearing the tale, Halliday rolled his eyes. “Walter was always on the edge,” he said, recalling how Grishkot, for a balloon festival stunt, had the world’s largest hibachi grill built to boost publicity. “You never knew what Walt was coming

up with next,” Halliday said. Thompson, who was guest speaker at the Gala, talked about how in 1992 Grishkot organized a presidential raft race between candidates on Lake George, and held a tribute to U.S. soldiers named “Operation Thank You” — a ticker-tape parade down Canada Street that featured the winner of a General Norman Schwarzkopf look-alike contest. Thompson also mentioned Grishkot’s quirkier ideas — including staging a world’s longest golf-ball drive on the surface of Lake George that was listed in the 1974 edition of

Ripley’s Believe It or Not. Thompson noted that whether Grishkot was arranging stunts or coaxing animals to pose for eye-arresting publicity photos, he was incomparable — larger than life. Halliday, Nichols, Thompson and Joan Grishkot shared tales — about how Grishkot would circulate at tables at Nichols’ restaurant, urging them to purchase anything on the menu with his personal money-back guarantee — then exit the restaurant soon afterwards. They laughed, recalling how he’d tell one person after another that they were getting the very first Balloon Festival pin of the newly minted edition. Grishkot’s most notable achievement was co-founding the Adirondack Balloon Festival in Queensbury, but his heart was always grounded in Lake George, they recalled, noting he initiated Lake George’s “Moonglow” hot-air balloon spinoff event.

“Walt Grishkot lived and breathed Lake George,” Halliday said. Thompson recalled how Grishkot, worried about how a liquid lake might curb attendance at the 1975 Winter Carnival, hired Chief Swift Eagle and his son Powhatan to conduct an “ice dance” in an effort to persuade Mother Nature to freeze the water — and it did solidify two days later, while attracting huge crowds due to the resulting publicity. Listening to their conversation, the four took delight in a man who was a showman, huckster, and savvy promoter — who ultimately embraced life with irrepressible excitement and wonder. “Walt Grishkot did for Lake George what Walt Disney did for Anaheim, California,” Halliday said. “He loved being an ambassador for the region,” Joan Grishkot responded.

High Peaks Hospice helps people cope with death and dying Hospice care isn’t about giving up, it’s about making a decision—a decision that can define how the final days of a person’s life will be lived. “The misconception is that hospice care is about dying or about giving up, and it’s not,” said Ingrid Roemischer, Development and Outreach Coordinator of High Peaks Hospice. “The patient is who we take care of. It’s still their life, it’s still their choice.” When a doctor gives someone six months or less to live, they often have the option of staying in a hospital and receiving treatment. Hospice caregivers, like those who work and volunteer for High Peaks Hospice, can offer the patient, and the patient’s family, other options. “A lot of people want to be home their last days, and we help them do that,” Roemischer said, adding: “It’s care, it’s not a cure.” What Roemischer means is that the purpose of hospice is to offer support and to make a person’s last days as comfortable as possible. High Peaks Hospice staff members become as involved as the family, and the patient, would like them to be, and will come to a person’s home, nursing home or hospital. Staff can visit daily, or weekly, depending on a patient’s wishes, and can perform tasks that range from simple conversation to helping take care of the patient. It’s what Roemischer refers to as the circle of care. In the center is the patient, and then the primary caregiver and the patient’s family. Around that is hospice, and then the doctor. The bulls-eye is always the patient, the focal point of all factions of hospice care, and everyone with a diagnosis of six months or less to live is eligible. “We do not turn people away based on age, gender, race, religion, or ability to pay,” Roemischer said. It’s true that hospice focuses on the needs

of the patient, but they are also there for the needs of the patient’s family. “End of life can be very stressful for everyone involved,” Roemischer said. “Sometimes, the family just needs to get away for a few hours.” High Peaks Hospice has served more than 5,600 patients and their families in Franklin, Essex and Warren counties since it was founded in 1986. Even though hospice care is covered by Medicare, Medicaid, and most health management organizations and private insurance companies, some expenses, like bereavement and mileage reimbursement, are largely funded by donations and community support. High Peaks Hospice also relies heavily upon volunteers like Frank Montbriand, who discovered hospice about five years ago. Montbriand took care of his mother for two-and-a-half years in Hague with his sister and her husband. After his family contacted High Peaks Hospice to assist in taking care of his mother toward the end of her life, he immediately began to see the value in hospice care. “If you go through that kind of experience you realize how physically, mentally and spiritually exhausting it can be,” Montbriand said. Montbriand’s mother died of old age in Feb. 2006, the day after her 95th birthday. He became a hospice volunteer six months later and has now worked with about 30 patients. The work has helped Montbriand understand that death is a natural part of life, and that it doesn’t necessarily have to be seen as a bad thing. “A lot of people, when they get to the point where they can’t interact well with people, when they can’t remember situations and when they can’t take care of themselves, they’re ready to go,” Montbriand said. “I think as a society we need to honor that.” Part of honoring that is accepting that, as people’s bodies begin to shut down, giving them comfort is paramount to improving

their quality of life during their final days. “We have this human desire to feed and nurture people when they are sick, but sometimes the body just doesn’t want food anymore,” Montbriand said. ““The quality of life issue becomes dominant. What I want for them is a peaceful death and as much family support as possible.” The nature of Montbriand’s volunteerism means he often gets to know people who are close to death, and there are emotions involved in that which can be difficult to cope with. Understanding the process of death helps him get through it, as does allowing for time to grieve. “You don’t really know about dying until you get there,” Montbriand said. “We’re here to go through the mourning process, too.” Jane Turlouw is also a volunteer for High Peaks Hospice, but she specializes in bereavement—helping family and friends of the deceased go through the mourning process.

After taking a post graduate class called children and death, Turlouw found she was interested in the topic and went back to school to get a graduate degree in counseling. She has been a part of hospice care ever since. For many grieving is a personal process, one that Turlouw approaches by only being as involved as the people need her to be. A part of that is letting them know that the pain they’re feeling is normal. “You help people grieve by listening to their story—letting them vent, letting them talk, letting them relive the experience time and time again,” Turlouw said. “It’s helping them normalize their new life, their life without this partner.” Turlouw worked in hospice in New Jersey for 20 years, and volunteered for High Peaks Hospice after moving to the area.

Adirondack Journal Editorial

Early voting warrants more consideration


he members of the New York State Legislature recently drew the ire of many residents by rushing to pass a bill, a mistake that should not be repeated when it comes to the topic of early voting. Members of both parties are looking at an early voting bill (Assembly Bill No. 689 and Senate Bill 1461), which would allow residents of New York state to vote as early as 14 days before the General Election in November and seven days before a primary election. Something probably should be done to curb the trend of low voter turnout. We have to look no further than the village of Keeseville, which held a vote Jan. 22 that in large part determined the future of the municipality. In the end, village residents voted to dissolve their municipality by a total of 268 votes in favor of dissolution to 176 against. The residents spoke — or did they? In total, 444 votes were cast in the matter, which can be seen as good voter turnout. However, there are 955 registered voters in the village and roughly 1,800 residents. There was not even a 50-percent turnout in a village vote that meant residents would never get to have another village vote. We feel that this is a shame, that so few people cared about the fact that their way of life will certainly change. Whether it is for the better or for the worse is a debate that will still be had, but change it will, and only 46 percent of the registered voters in the town took the five minutes out of their lives to make their voices heard on one of the most important votes in the history of the village (made even more so because of the outcome). So, while we commend those who took to the polls, the majority of Keeseville residents should be ashamed of their apathy, expecially if their vote could have changed the outcome. The turnout for the General Election statewide in 2012 was also 46 percent, a number which ranked New York as having the third lowest voter turnout in the nation. So something is wrong and needs to be changed, and we can agree with that. Lawmakers are saying that they want this to be enacted for this election season, which begins with primaries in September and the General Election Nov. 5. In a way, it sounds a lot like the legislative push on gun violence: here’s the problem, lets fix it now, here’s an idea, passed. On this one, the legislature needs to take a deep breath and listen to the foot soldiers, the ones who have been put in charge of the matter at the county level. In Essex County, Democratic Commissioner to the Board of Elections Robert PelldeChame basically called out lawmakers for what would be yet another unfunded state mandate, making counties spend more money on poll workers that would have to be set up in one of at least five early voting polling sites spread throughout the county. Additional mileage would also have to be paid. To make matters worse, bringing early voting to the state this year would give counties an unfunded mandate that they are not even prepared for, with counties already having spending plans for the year in place and, in the case of Essex County, having very little wiggle room to fund a new mandate from the state. So please, lawmakers, on this one, take a step back, look at all of the issues that come with this decision, and not just the ones that would lead to quick passage of these bills. You’ve already done that once this year, and it didn’t work out very well for you. —Denton Publications Editorial Board

Politically correct or bust?


t’s a term we hear bantered about in so many of the everyday things we think and do. The term is called “politically correct,” and it has become far more than just trying to keep in step with modern society. Being politically correct seems to be invading all parts of our society. Nobody wants to be politically incorrect because we’ve been told it’s wrong and we’re wrong if we’re not acting, speaking or even thinking correctly with the “mainstream” of political wisdom. When did our political system start dictating our attitude, our way of thinking, speaking, acting or just being ourselves? Is our political system now in complete control of how Americans must live in this the land of the free? In a culture that at one time prided itself on individualism, are we now being herded down a path of “get in step or else?” There is a lot of talk these days about the First and Second Amendment Rights in the U.S. Constitution. Is it really politicians who now dictate how we must live in order to be correctly in line with their version American society? Have they changed us from constituents to subjects? Somehow I fear we’ve allowed them to divide us into two schools of thought and labeled us Red and Blue. But why, with over 300 million people in the country, can’t we have various opinions? Are our political parties a reflection of the voters, or have the political parties divided us? And who is prospering the most from political correctness? As an example, growing up I did not come from a gun-oriented family. We had no guns, so I don’t have a strong bias toward the issue of gun ownership one way or another. On the issue of outlawing certain guns from law-abiding citizens because of the actions of a few unstable people doesn’t make sense any more than removing prayer from government property and educational institutions because a small minority claims to be offended. That doesn’t mean I favor the senseless killing of innocent lives any more than I favor the right to force anyone to worship only my God. Growing up, my parents and teachers taught me to think for myself. They were happy to provide guidance, but I was never encouraged to do anything but rea-

son out my own thought process and reach a conclusion of my own. Common Dan Alexander sense, basic Thoughts from logic, Behind the Pressline learning how to do my own research and recognizing right from wrong was all I needed to guide me to a position. Once that position was reached, others might try to persuade me. As an individual, you were respected for developing a position, and for either standing by it or being persuaded to alter that position if you were shown where your information or logic was flawed. Sadly political correctness is most recently from the Marxism culture dating back to World War I and World War II. If we compare the basic principles of political correctness with other cultures through the ages, the parallels are obvious. It’s a path we should not celebrate but try hard to avoid. So why are we so quick to give our government so much control, and why are these laws and rulings being handed down without much public debate? With so much information available today, we can’t claim to be uniformed. Are we just distracted and preoccupied, or are we being asked to let down our guard and allow others to think for us while being discouraged from independent thinking? When you consider the state of our economy, the ongoing stalemate taking place in halls of government coupled with the extravagances blooming in Washington, and the condition of radical states around the world, one has to wonder if we are still a fiercely independent nation, one that is ever evolving, one that was the envy of the world. We should not take lightly any changes to the rights we have been given by our forefathers, regardless of the implied intention of the changes. Dan Alexander is publisher of Denton Publications.

100 Years Ago - February 1913 Bad luck revisited Mrs. Susan Woodward, 75, while walking in Warrensburgh on Mountain Avenue in Warrensburgh, on Jan. 29, 1913, in company with Elizabeth Crandall, fell on the ice and striking with great force on her left hand broke both bones of her arm in the wrist joint. This is the second time that the member has been broken in nearly the same place. The other wrist was also previously broken near the joint. Mrs. Crandall assisted her to the home of her son, J.H. Woodward on upper Main St. where she resides. Two years before, while suffering an attack of vertigo, Mrs. Woodward fell down a steep flight of stairs at the Woodward residence and sustained injuries from which she has never fully recovered. Last August, 1912, she had yet another severe fall from the piazza of her son’s house. She is enduring her current suffering from her latest injury with great fortitude.

Fell head first William Austin, while driving Orson R. Wilsey’s team on King St., Warrensburgh was seized by an attack of vertigo and fell unconscious from the wagon into the street. Otto Fish saw him fall and ran to his assistance. Austin was carried to his home and remained there unconscious for quite some time.

Illness and trouble abound Charles Payne of Indian Lake suffered a stroke of paralysis and high school teacher Julia Cross has the grippe. Wilbur Perkins of West Stony Creek is suffering severely from a lame back. Connie Baker of Fort Ann is staying in North Thurman. About two weeks ago he had two of his fingers cut off and two others severely mangled in a corn-husking machine. Kenneth Duell of Horicon fell on the ice and cut his head quite badly. Mrs. Alfred Duell of Bolton Landing is ill with pleurisy. George Daggett of Bolton lost a pig Jan.

27, 1913. The animal was taken sick and died in less than an hour. Peter Baker of South Horicon also lost a fine pig, a serious loss to his family.

Married and settled down Robert C. Wood, a former Warrensburgh boy better known as Cassius, has completed two terms of service in the U.S. Army, seven years altogether, and received an honorable discharge at Fort Sheridan, Ill., near Chicago. Cass married during his last enlistment and is now working as a railroad fireman in Chicago.

Mild winter continues Navigation records enduring for 80 years have been broken on the Hudson River. Trips of the river boats from Albany to New York marked the 288th day of the season that navigation was possible and broke the record of 30 years. The trip later taken on Jan. 13, 1913 shattered the 80-year record and the boats are still running. Last year the closing date was Jan. 3, 1912. (Note; Local people, feeling leery, were hoping that when the snow would eventually come, it would not all come all at once in a blizzard as it did on Feb. 20, 1908 when 12 inches of snow fell accompanied by damaging high winds.) Never in the memory of our oldest residents, nor has records been found, to show that Lake George ever remained open for the entire month of January and now into February before this current year. (Note: in 2012, the lake didn’t freeze over for the entire winter, which was the first time in recent history for such an occurrence.) Walter E. Harris of Lake George, accompanied by his dog, “Duffy,” made a remarkable trip the length of Lake George to Baldwin in his Naptha motorboat, Jan. 26, 1913 and after a cigar and chat with George Loomis, made the return home.

Fort William Henry Hotel Under the new management of Albert Thieriot, the Fort William Henry Hotel, owned by the Delaware and Hudson railroad company, is assured of the brightest possible future. Mr. Thieriot was for many years in charge of Delmonico’s restaurant in

New York City and he is considered to be the top man in his profession as he is skilled in providing for the wants of the fastidious public. (Note: Albert Thieriot lived in Chestertown, in a house still standing on what is today Thieriot Avenue, with his wife, Phebe Watson, a native of Warrensburgh. Her father, Godfrey T. Watson, owned a grocery store in the building that now houses the Alexander-Baker funeral home. A wellloved man of indomitable energy, Thieriot served for many years as executor and trustee of the Rosa Delmonico estate. He died of the after-effects of pneumonia in 1915 at home in Chestertown.)

No ice fishing on Lake George Fishing through the ice on Lake George, known as “Old Horicon” by locals, is a thing of the past under the state’s new uniform fish and game law. The law prohibits fishing through the ice for brook, rainbow, red, spotted and brown trout which were planted there years ago by the former culturist A.N. Cheney where they are continuing to thrive. Heretofore an exception has been made in favor of those who wanted to fish for perch, of which the lake once boasted some of the finest in the country and hundreds of pounds were taken out each winter and they always found a ready market. Complaint was made by the cottagers that this form of winter fishing so cleaned up the lake that it was impossible to get a mess of yellow perch during several seasons past, although they were formerly one of the most plentiful of summer fishes. (Note: Because he was besieged with complaints about this new law from area residents, state Sen. James A. Emerson of Warrensburgh used his considerable influence in Albany to pressure the state conservation officer to rescind this new law for the winter of 1913, both in Lake George and Schroon Lake and to not allow Game Protector Burnett to prosecute or “molest” and person who indulged in this sort of fishing.) This law would have forced the Fort William Henry Hotel to stop advertising “comfortable” ice fishing for their guests as

Groundhog folklore is fun Groundhog Day is celebrated on Feb. 2 — and many people in the region, young and old, enjoy the quirky tradition. According to folklore, if it is cloudy when a groundhog emerges from its burrow on this day, then spring will come early. If it is sunny, the groundhog will supposedly see its shadow and retreat back into its burrow, and the winter weather will continue for six more weeks. This logic has confused me for years, If one “sees” their shadow it means it’s sunny out, therefore we would be having warmer weather than usual for February. And, if no shadow is seen then it would be overcast and hence having seasonal weather for February. However, sunny conditions generally indicate clear weather in winter, which routinely is accompanied by colder temperatures. Annually, thousands of people show up at “Gobblers Knob” in Punxsutawney, Pa. to see whether Punxsutawney Phil could see his shadow. Also, each year the topic of groundhog prognostication is a top internet inquiry, according to search engine data. According to the StormFax Weather Almanac and records kept since 1887, Punxsutawney Phil's weather predictions have been correct 39 percent of the time. The U.S. National Climatic Data Center asserts that the statistics gathered for years show Punxsutawney Phil has no predictive skill. Well, we up here in Thurman don’t hold it against the groundhogs.

Woolly bears and Edith Bills A better way to predict the winter in Thurman has historically been the prevailing colorations of the woolly bear caterpillar. Old-timers in Thurman remember that for years, Adirondack Journal columnist Edith Bills annually measured the black and brown bands on the creature to predict how rough the upcoming winter would be. If the woolly bear caterpillar has a big brown stripe in the middle and smaller black stripes on each end, winter will be mild. But if the creatures tend to have a small brown stripe in the middle and bigger black stripes on the ends, winter will be harsh, according to prevailing folklore. While science indicates that the width of these bands is related to the age of the caterpillar, old-timers remember well that Edith Bills’ predictions were most likely to prove accurate!

I’ve observed that Gov. Andrew Cuomo recently proposed to expand solar energy in the state by investing $150 million more annually into solar initiatives over the next 10 years. Let’s hope a good amount of the money goes towards assisting rural upstate residents become energy self-sufficient! The Town of Thurman has decided to name the celebration of Warren County Bicentennial as Thurman Old Home Days to be held June 14 and 15. Thurman’s celebration of the Warren County Bicentennial will feature such activities as a town-sponsored parade, children’s games, live music and entertainment, a military encampment and fireworks. Anyone interested in creating a float or participating in the parade should contact Evelyn Wood at 623-9649. Jim Desourdy will take your orange bags of trash to the transfer station for only $5 per week, and only charges for the week he picks up. To contact Jim, call 623-4254.

Your memories, artifacts sought The John Thurman Historical Society is now seeking your stories about bygone days in our rural town. Any topic you would like to write about is fine, according to the Society representatives. One topic already being pursued by several local residents deals with ice jams, floods and bridges. If you have memories or pictures of this topic, the Quarterly staff would like you to phone or email to let them know. Also, the Society members are gathering reminiscences of old sayings local residents heard in their youth

the hotel had made plans to set up many fishing huts with heaters, tip-ups and holes in the ice and so far this season they have not yet done so because of the unusual winter weather which has caused only six inches of ice to form on the lake. The ice races on Lake George have been postponed until Feb. 18, 1913.

News roundabout According to the almanac there will be five eclipses this year, three of the sun and two of the moon. On Jan. 11, 1913 the first sedan-type automobile, a Hudson, went on display at the 13th Annual Auto Show in New York City. On Feb. 25, 1913 an amendment was ratified authorizing income tax. It will take effect March 1, 1913. The new American rage for young and old is the insertion of a prize in a Cracker Jack box for the first time. “Babe” Ruth, the up-and-coming young baseball player, celebrated his 18th birthday on Feb. 6, 1913 and is looking forward to good things to come his way. (George Herman Ruth, known as the most famous player in baseball history, was signed up the next year by the minor-league Baltimore Orioles. He died in 1948.) James Shannahan is seriously ill at his home on the Thurman Road known at “Cat’s Corners.” (Note: This area, directly on the east end of the Thurman Bridge, is sometimes also called “Katz’s Corners and many wonder about the name’s origin. Call me at 623-2210 if you have any information.) F.W. Hall, who has associated with Edson Granger in the Warrensburgh Automobile Garage on lower Main St., has moved his family here from Granville and is occupying Walter Pasco’s tenant house adjoining the Baptist Church on the corner of Main St. and Mountain Avenue. Supervisor Fred Rogers of North Creek has just butchered a pig that weighed 650 pounds dressed. Will Harris of Athol shot a silver gray fox. A hand-powered clothes washing machine is on sale for $4.98 at Bickley Brothers store at 172 Glen St. in Glens Falls. Readers are welcome to contact Adirondack Journal correspondent Jean Hadden at or 623-2210.

Family fun featured as Brant Lake Winter Carnival debuts Feb. 9

The Pebloe Hotel

By Thom Randall

At the turn of the twentieth century, the Pebloe Hotel was one of Brant Lake’s predominant resorts. In 1903 Philetus Smith bought the Homer Davis property on the shore of Brant Lake. He then purchased a hotel located at the Tannery and moved it to the new lot, naming it The Pebloe Hotel. In 1905, an ad in the New York Tribune stated- “The Pebloe on Brant Lake - new, modern and up to date, in the fishing and hunting country”. The downstate guests arrived by train to Riparius and then by horse and carriage to the hotel. At the time, the Pebloe accommodated more than 200 people with some staying the entire summer. The hotel was eventually bought by Dell and Ann Pasco. In 1964, In less than an hour, the hotel was burned by 5 local fire companies during a mutual aid drill. The land was cleared to make way for new cottages. An association named Chippewa was formed, named after Native Americans who had camped at Brant Lake.

Letters to the Editor

Agrees with gun control editorial To the Adirondack Journal: Excellent editorial regarding the new gun laws that were rammed through. The governor is first and foremost a politician with his sights on the White House (as if the current president isn't liberal enough). These laws are nothing more than a publicity stunt and will not accomplish the stated goal of reducing gun violence. After all, DWI, rape, theft, etc. are all illegal and that doesn't seem to matter to those intent on breaking the law. Kudos to Dan Stec and Betty Little for voting against this. John Kearney Lake George

Casinos in L. G. would transform village To the Adirondack Journal: Here’s my new Lake George proposal: Two new casinos will open in Lake George. Competition is always a good thing. One will be at Roaring Brook Ranch and other will be at the top of Prospect Mountain. The two will be connected by a monorail that will also connect to downtown Lake George, formally known as the Village. The west side of Canada Street will now be home to numerous "speak easy" establishments, sort of on the line of New Orleans. The sidewalks are wide enough to handle to flow of drunken patrons — so the local zoning steering committee will not need to worry about promoting foot traffic. All brothels will be behind

the six- and eight-story buildings on the west side of the street. Amber lighting will indicate a house of ill repute. The amber lighting will give an Adirondack feel unlike the bright red lights in most red-light districts. Also, nice curtains must be on the windows, as to not go against the mayor ’s request for boarding up vacant-looking storefronts. Also, all former, current and future elected officials will be entitled to a 24.6% discount at theses establishments — It’s always good to throw in a little pork in these deals. The festival area at the new West Brook Park will now become two parking garages. One will be for families and the other will be for the rest of the people. All "working girls" are to be off the street while students are being dropped off or picked up at school. Fishnet stockings are against the law during daylight hours — on not only women but men. These are ideas I got when I went to Hamburg, Germany. These restrictions reportedly work well there. Lake George’s downtown courthouse will once again become a real courthouse because we will need it with all the crime that accompanies casinos. Also, one of the nearby hotels will be converted into a jail. Some of the existing hotels will be converted into lowincome housing for workers at the two casinos. These must be close to the local schools, because we won't be able to afford to bus all of the migrant workers‘ kids to school. The local Zoning Board, Planning Board and Code Enforcement Agency for both the Village and Town of Lake George will be combined to save taxpayers money. Since both have proven to be useless, after a year they will disband. A better system known as The Wizard will be implemented. You will go before him, and he will decide. We will need a Wizard, but most cur-

rently elected officials are qualified to serve in the role. In year or two, a new Walmart will open in town. This may be connected to the monorail, but we are not sure at this time. Todd Fellegy Lake George

‘New World Order’ a threat to gun rights To the Adirondack Journal: With all the hype, outright lies about guns and gun control, there’s not one word uttered about why the government wants guns removed from the hands of law-abiding citizens. It’s not about stopping crime or making little Johnnys and Suzies safer in the gun-free school killing zones. No, it’s called “The New World Order.” But armed citizens cannot be enslaved by the United Nations “New World Order.” Think about what happens when the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights are banned. Have you ever read Hitler ’s 1938 gun control act and the U.S. 1968 gun control act? Almost identical, word-for-word! Look at the millions of disarmed citizens butchered worldwide — which, for your information, is still going on. Those that beat their weapons into plows, will plow for those that don’t.

To the Adirondack Journal: It has been said that you can't fight "city hall," Well, we tried, and we lost. In fact the entire community of Thurman has lost. They have lost their right to protection by their local government. Money, power, and control have been put before the safety of the residents — and this by the County Safety Officer (also known as the Thurman Town Supervisor). For at least two years now, the squad has been pleading with the Town of Thurman for financial aid. Many residents have come forth with cash donations, probably more than some could afford. They have tried to help. Many have gone to the Town Board meetings to plead with the Board to find a way to keep the local squad. But they found their concern fell on deaf ears. It appeared obvious that the Town Board had no desire to help the squad. Many viable suggestions were put forth, only to be ignored. At one such meeting the squad President asked what would the town do for its residents if the squad closed. The response from the Town Supervisor was “....We will have other options to explore." When questioned as to what those other options were, there was no response; just a blank stare. Well, we have discovered what those "options" are. And unfortunately I refuse to jeopardize myself and the squad by relaying that information. Consequently, the squad will officially close its doors in the very near future. We are in the process of filing all necessary papers with the various state and local entities. Once all of these have been approved we will officially close. At this time the entire squad wishes to thank all who have supported us throughout these trying times. We are aware that many gave much, and we are

eternally grateful. It is a very sad day for all. We have been honored to be there for you in your time of need. And thankful for your being there in our time of need. May God bless you all. Respectfully and sadly — for the entire squad, Jean F. Coulard, President, Thurman EMS, Inc.

financial troubles, but he hadn’t heard they were shutting down. “I wish they could have made a go of it, but they don’t have enough runs to break even,” he said. “It’s too bad.” Farrell and LaFlure said that with the equipment, training and staffing necessary for a modern ambulance squad to provide the advanced life support services people expect, agencies that have few calls are bound to have financial troubles. Thurman EMS responds to about 100 calls per year, and Warrensburg EMS responds to approximately 1,100. Farrell noted that in Thurman, the service has been traditionally provided at no cost to the residents, which crimps finances. Farrell said that without subsidy, the amount received from billing patients would hardly pay for the gasoline to send ambulances out — let alone paid qualified staffing. Thurman Supervisor Evelyn Russell said Tuesday afternoon that she hadn’t heard that Thurman EMS was pursuing plans to dissolve. “It’s admirable that the Thurman squad has done as well as they have for years,” she said. “But with all the state requirements, it’s difficult for a squad to get by anymore.” She said the board’s decision to withdraw support had been difficult. “We wholeheartedly support having EMS services in town — Public safety is of paramount importance, and we have nothing but respect for the squad members — but the financial times are tight. We couldn’t afford what they were asking.” Thurman EMS officers had recently requested operating subsidy from the town, at various times, representing sums ranging from $30,000 to $115,000 annually. Wood said the town taxpayers were already burdened with hefty employee retirement increases which pushed the town budget to the maximum under the tax cap — without any subsidy to the squad. In mid-November, the squad asked

squad is falling by the wayside,” she said. “We’ve done what we can — and the town board’s been so unresponsive — but you can’t fight city hall.” Coulard said that Thurman EMS would likely stop operating entirely in a matter of days. She said that in the meantime, ambulance calls would be answered only if a qualified volunteer staff member was in the station or nearby. For much of Tuesday, the station was unmanned. “If a driver and an EMT is there we’ll respond — it will be hit-and-miss — but 70 to 80 percent of the time, we’re not now staffed to respond,” she said. “Warrensburg EMS will have to pick up our calls — it’s a sad situation, considering the extra time it takes them to get up here.” Robert Farrell, the Board of Directors Chairman of Warrensburg Emergency Medical Services, said officials of his agency have been talking with Thurman squad officers recently about the possibility of acquiring the assets of the Thurman squad — their relatively new ambulance, EMS equipment and their squad building on High St. Theoretically, the Warrensburg squad could set up a satellite station in Thurman and keep it manned around the clock, he said. But such a scenario would most likely require a financial stipend from the town, considering the low number of calls in Thurman and the expenses involved in staffing the station and paying for the required extensive training. Also, he noted that the townspeople were used to a free service. “If the town board didn’t want to give us anything, it would crimp our ability to answer calls up there,” Farrell said. “We’re short of money as it is.” Tuesday, Jan. 29, Warren County Director of Emergency Services Brian LaFlure said he knew of Thurman EMS’

Three to four computerized machines and supplies of 19 ballots styles would have to be available in quantity at all five locations, which would have to be staffed with 20 inspectors total. Once any sealed ballot package of 50 were opened, the remainder of the ballots in the package would have to be destroyed. Such state mandates already in place cost the county taxpayers $110,000 or more per year — without the additional early voting. Each station would have to be equipped with a specialized ballot marking device to accommodate those with physical challenges, with an inspector trained to instruct others in their use, she continued. “Heaven knows where we’d get the election inspectors we’d need,” she said. The mandates to daily pre-test, prepare and secure the machines would also be burdensome, she said, noting that it might be impossible to meet the security requirements without transporting the machines daily to and from the county Municipal Center. Casey said the early voting, if enacted, would cost local taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars per election.

for $75,000 from the town, banking on raising $40,000 to $50,00 in donations from the town’s 350 or so households. Wood had said the $75,000 sum would represent a 20 percent tax increase, which taxpayers couldn’t afford. In 2012, the town allocated $27,315 towards the EMS agency’s operations, and the prior year, the sum was $33,468. In various town board meetings, quite a few citizens have requested passionately for public support for Thurman EMS, citing how its quick response times were vital to public safety. Ambulances from Warrensburg can take 10 to 20 minutes longer to arrive than the local squad. Others are concerned about rising taxes. Coulard estimated that Thurman EMS’ squad building — appraised several years ago at $300,000, might be worth about $200,000 now. The agency’s ambulance, she added, was just recently paid off. She said it was worth $78,000. “Our building was built by squad members’ labor about 12 years ago for about $57,000,” she said. Coulard continued that in the squad’s dissolution, its assets would be substantially greater than its liabilities. Farrell said that the Warrensburg squad has interest in acquiring the building, because it would be key to providing an efficient satellite location for their operations. Warrensburg EMS also could use Thurman’s ambulance, he added, because Warrensburg EMS has an urgent need for another — they now have one ambulance in top shape, one in marginal condition and one unusable. “If we take on the building, we’d have to have support from the town — but less than would be necessary for a full independent service,” Farrell said. “At the moment, we’re ready to do what we can to protect public safety in Thurman. But we can’t keep doing this for an extended time without financial support.”

Casey said she supported the concept of early voting — because it encourages more people to vote — but it should be accomplished through the existing system in place for absentee voting. The absentee regulations — now providing only for those out-of-the area, physically challenged, or in jail — would have to be expanded to include those merely seeking to vote at their convenience. She said the absentee system works well, features tight security and was inexpensive. She noted that the county handled 3,500 absentee ballots this last election. Casey said that expanding voting opportunities made the most sense in New York City, where only 46 percent voter turnout occurred this past election. Warren County voters tallied a 70 percent turnout, she said. In response to Casey’s pleas, the county supervisors voted unanimously to draft a resolution and send it to state legislators and Gov. Cuomo. Queensbury at-large Supervisor Bill Mason said the early voting proposal was ineffective and impractical. “This is yet another unfunded mandate that may be jammed down our throats,” he said. In Essex County, the county’s two elections commissioners made a similar plea Jan. 14 to supervisors attending the Public Safety Committee meeting.

Outhouse races

Winter Carnival from page 1 The thick ice will serve as a sturdy platform for the North East Snow X series Carnival Cup race that will debut on Feb. 9 and 10. The races will be like the X Games for snowmobiles. Race will begin off West Brook Road at the former Gaslight Village site. Registration will begin at 9 a.m. The infamous outhouse races attracted a large following at last year ’s festivities with the attraction drawing the cameras from the Discovery Channel. Cameras were following the story of a local man creating the faux-outhouse creations to be pulled across the ice. Nichols said this year will be no different, with many people flocking to the ice to see what outdoor concoctions people will race this year. Those interested in participating in the outhouse run can register at Duffy’s Tavern or by calling 668-5323. The various other ice-top events and races on Feb. 16 and 17 will be the New York State AMA sanctioned Motorcycle and ATV Ice Race Championship and the ATV Poker/Scavenger hunt and kite flying on the ice. Car races on the ice are scheduled for the Carnival’s final weekend, Feb. 23 and 24. New this year, there will be a doggy talent contest, “Your Dog’s Got Talent!” Nichols said that the competition is open to any special canine friend with a talent to share. The competitions will be held every weekend day at 2:30 p.m. at Shephard Park. During all of the weekends, there will be helicopter rides with tethered hot-air balloon rides. Tubby Tubes Giant Tubing slide will be open at Shephard Park. Children’s activities will be held both Saturday and Sunday. The snowmobile water skip will be held a 2:30 p.m. every weekend day. A full schedule of events can be found at
