Group to push town for sewer initiative



A tribute to Mr. Burlingame

By Cindy Mead


CHESTERTOWN — Business leaders in town are planning to urge town board members to apply for grant money to bankroll a sewer system. Don Butler, a founding member of the Tri-lakes Business Alliance, reported at the group’s meeting Feb. 10 that he’d met with the state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) officials regarding a small-scale sewer system for downtown Chestertown, and they’d assured him that grant money is available for such a project. Alliance members attending the group’s Feb. 10 meeting decided to send a letter to the Chester Town Board requesting them to have a municipal engineer draw up plans so when the grant money becomes available, Chester can be toward the top of the list for funding. Butler reported that DEC officials indicated it was feasible for two or three smaller sewer systems to be

Town concerned over groundwater drainage
















By Thom Randall LAKE GEORGE — Town officials expressed frustrations Feb. 13 about groundwater draining off state land into town sanitary sewer pipes and being treated at the village sewer




plant at the expense of town taxpayers. Their concerns were aired as the town heard from new town board member Dan Hurley about ongoing efforts to slip-line the town’s sewer pipes to reduce infiltration. Town Code Enforcement Officer Rob Hickey said that despite objec-

tions aired years ago, clean groundwater was continuing to flow from drain pipes under state-owned Battlefield Park and being dumped into the town’s Caldwell Sewer District transmission line. Hickey said that town officials took action in July 2010 to cap off the lines that illegally drained and

4 - Adirondack Journal from page 1 Old-timers in town have said the drainage pipes were likely installed by the state Department of Environmental Conservation when the agency created Battlefield Park from former swamp land. The pipes were constructed to drain off underground sources of water that fed the swamp, they’ve speculated. But in 2010, the state denied knowledge or ownership of the pipes. For years, town and village officials have been concerned the village sewer system has been overburdened. In 2010, videos taken by a robotic camera inside water pipes confirmed that stormwater flow was a primary culprit for massive inflows. It was discovered that the pipes under Battlefield Park were delivering a considerable flow — thousands of gallons daily — of clean stormwater into the town’s main transmission line. For many years, it has been illegal to pump stormwater into the municipal sewer system, which is reserved by law for septic sewage. The town pays for a share of the village sewer treatment plant’s operation, based on the gallonage it delivers to the plant. Hurley said that the town taxpayers might be soon shouldering higher costs for sewage treatment, because the village was cutting back on groundwater infiltration in its pipes, effectively boosting the town’s percentage of the flow of water treated.

“The costs to the town may go up because the village has tightened up their lines,” he said, after noting that slip-lining of the town’s sewer pipes is likely to cost $30 to $50 per foot. Hearing of the groundwater inflows off Battlefield Park, Dickinson said he would be meeting with state Department of Conservation officials to discuss the matter. On a related issue, Dickinson said he and other town officials were meeting with engineers and reviewing sanitary regulations. “We are making serious progress,” he said, noting that ordinance changes would be ready for a public hearing in several months.

Sign regulations discussed In other issues discussed by the board, councilwoman Marisa Muratori noted that although the town years ago had adopted the Lake George Park Commission’s sign regulations, the town had “never enforced them,” she said. “We should take inventory of what’s out there, review the codes and perhaps update them,” Muratori said, calling for enforcement on limitations of size, illumination, height, and other criteria. The board set a meeting for 4 p.m. Tuesday Feb. 28 to review the topic.

Sister City donation approved Also, the board appropriated $1,000 to wards costs of the “Sister City” program that Warren County and Glens Falls operate in

conjunction with Saga City, Japan. Dickinson noted that the county cut its funding from $5,000 annually to $1,000, and that Queensbury, Luzerne and Lake George were going to make up most of the difference. Muratori said the program was valuable. “It’s a major program with a great deal of cultural significance,” she said. Dickinson said the Sister City group had been a conduit for about $30,000 in local donations toward earthquake and tsunami relief in Japan.

Solar power by fall 2012? Later, Muratori noted that town officials had made progress on investigating solar power. She said she and others had met with various solar firms, and one had proposed generating far more electricity than needed to power town facilities. She said that one enterprise had suggested installing 15 acres of solar panels to provide a considerable amount of energy, feeding it back to the grid for use by the public. She said that such a “solar farm” could be erected atop the landfill. “Such a solar farm would provide sustainable energy for our community,” she said, predicting that agreements to convert to solar panel could be reached in four to six months. In other business, the town board: • voted to borrow up to $40,000 to acquire a grinder mechanism for wastewater treatment. • approved a course through the town for a Ragnar Relay Race event to be held Sept.

28 through 29 — a challenging overnight footrace that is to extend from Saratoga Springs to Lake Placid. • voted to reinstate the residency requirement for the town Comptroller post. The issue is subject to a public hearing at 7 p.m. March 12. • approved the new revised town employee handbook. • set $7.50 per hour as the rate at which town employees can redeem unused sick time. • heard from Dickinson that up to $300,000 might be available in grant funding for sewer improvements. The town is now considering forming a sewer district to accommodate the proposed Price Chopper store near Northway Exit 23 as well as the sewer discharges from McDonald’s Restaurant, Exit 23 Mobil and Super 8 Motel, all located nearby. • discussed using the Lake George Fire Department’s personnel van to transport seniors to Glens Falls and gambling trips to Vermont. Town board members noted that using a trolley, as is customary, wasn’t costefficient, considering that often there are only two to three passengers. • proposed that Bert Weber be appointed to represent the town to the Warren County Safe & Quality Cycling Citizens Advisory Committee. • heard a proposal by Muratori that the town transfer station boost its recycling — as well as offer compost, wood chips to residents and an “educational experience” for local citizens.

Infrastructure key to healthy communities Whitney Houston: A tragic ending to a shining star


s they say in the lottery, you have to pay in order to play. This is also true when it comes to maintaining the infrastructure of a municipality. In order to make it attractive to potential businesses, investors and residents, you have to pay. Recently, the town of Elizabethtown held a public forum on the creation of its sewer system. Supervisor Margaret “Maggie” Bartley has stated that she feels a municipal wastewater facility is needed in order to bring new businesses to the area, using the examples of a car wash or a laundry mat. According to the information given at the meeting, a new sewer system would come with a price tag of around $364 annually for a typical one-family home located in the new district. We believe that improving the infrastructure of a community is crucial in attracting business and residents, and we applaud voters of the proposed sewer district for having the forward thinking to approve this project when it went to vote in July 2010. Elizabethtown is a town that many commute to for work at the county offices or school, and would be an ideal place for a car wash or laundry mat, along with an expanded offering of other services, like food and recreation. It’s like the phrase from Field of Dreams, “If you build it, they will come.” And if they come, the $364 is going to go down as an increase of system users and an increase of tax base will lessen the burden on everyone. We urge residents to approve easements on their properties to help make the $9.5 million system a reality. Along with the development of infrastructure, there is also the price that comes to keep infrastructure maintained. You can either be proactive about it or wait to pay the piper. In Westport, the town is paying for numerous infractions at the town highway garage, which was described by town supervisor Daniel Connell as a facility that is obsolete even if it is brought into compliance with state regulations. Town officials are also looking to renovate their current home, known as the WADA Building, and members of the fire department continue to work in what they describe as an obso-

lete building. Voters balked at a proposed multi-use facility last summer, and the trickle of violations at these run down, obsolete facilties will cost thousands in repairs and fines. This tidal wave of expenses is already starting to be felt. Instead of being proactive when it came to the chance to update infrastructure, the voters of the town chose instead to delay the inevitable in the hopes that a cheaper alternative could be found. The lack of forward thinking by these voters is now going to cost even more in the long run, while community needs remain unmet. We are urging Elizabethtown voters to not make the same mistake. A highly functioning infrastructure also helps with the image of a town and the self esteem of its residents. People can take pride in the fact that they have resources that work and provide an avenue for improvement, instead of always hearing about Department of Environmental Conservation Consent Orders that come with lofty fines. At the same time, there are also cases in which too much infrastructure was put in place, and redundancy exists. For example, Keeseville is considering dissolving its village government and merging it with the towns of Chesterfield and Ausable. If such a consolidation can save taxpayers the cost of occupying a village hall or village highway garage, than it is certainly worth exploring. That savings can then be reinvested in the remaining infrastructure, ensuring the two towns do not find themselves in a situation like Westport. Ultimately it is up to town leaders to have the foresight to offer plans that will benefit the community in the most cost effective way to taxpayers for years to come. That’s what is on the drawing table in Elizabethtown. Without it, our municipalities will continue to dwindle in numbers as businesses evaporate forcing residents to seek employment elsewhere.

This editorial is the collaborative opinion of a board comprised of Thom Randall, Fred Herbst, Lou Varricchio, Keith Lobdell, Stephen Bartlett, Andy Flynn and John Gereau. Comments may be directed to

•100 Years Ago – Feb. 1912•

Winter drags forward Yesterday was St. Valentine’s Day and now the sun is getting higher every day and daylight is superseding electric lights and oil lamps to an appreciable extent. However, no robins have been reported here and the groundhog has gone back into his lair for another six weeks. We are having nice spring weather here now and if it continues many days longer, the sleighing will be gone. However, to be on the safe side we might as well keep our coal bins well-filled for the present time. Lake George froze over this year in 1912. Previously in 1910 and 1911 the winters were mild and the lake didn’t freeze completely. (Note: 100 years later, in 2010 the lake again did not freeze, but in 2011 it did freeze over and this year, in 2012 it has not even come close.)

Boy meets violent death Howard Mead, 20, of Fort Edward, employed as a brakeman on the D&H passenger train running between Glens Falls and Fort Edward, was fatally injured Feb. 21, 1912 at noon when a freight train from Glens Falls collided with the passenger train that was standing in front of the Fort Edward Depot awaiting the arrival of the southbound train from Whitehall. Young Mead was caught between the tender and the engine where he was at work and was badly crushed receiving internal injuries and his right leg was severed from his body below the knee. The boy was carried to a grocery store nearby where he was attended by two physicians, but nothing could be done for him. He died at 1:15 p.m. This is the most serious train wreck in eight years since engineer John Howe was killed near the cement works.

Opinion - Adirondack Journal - 7

Fire at Lake George

Big turnout for pastor’s talk

A storehouse owned by the Schermerhorn Construction Co. of Lake George, located near the Russell switch in that village, was destroyed by fire at about 2:30 o’clock the morning of Feb. 25, 1912. Building materials of various kinds were stored in the building and all were destroyed. The fire is believed to have caught from a spark from a pipe or a cigarette. The loss, partly covered by insurance, will reach $5,000. The company will at once commence the erection of a concrete building to replace the burned structure.

The Rev. Richard Abbott, pastor of the Warrensburgh Presbyterian Church, gave a historical talk at the Richards Library the afternoon of Feb. 13, 1912 about Abraham Lincoln. Nearly 100 people attended. Mr. Abbott is a deep thinker and a speaker of unusual ability. His mind is stored with a wealth of material and it is a pleasure to listen to him. He was one of the boys of 1861 who responded to Lincoln’s call for volunteers at the beginning of the bloody Civil War.

Statewide news The talk at the Warrensburgh barber shops and around the potbelly stove down at the feed and grain store is all about daredevil Frederick R. Law who, on Feb. 2, 1912, safely parachuted from the torch of the Statue of Liberty in New York city, in a stunt filmed by Pathe News. In other news, the number of farmers who own autos in New York State in 1911 more than doubled previous records and advance orders now on hand at the different factories indicate that 1912 sales will excel those of last year.

Minister has narrow escape While holding the ladder for a workman who was chopping ice from the roof of the Methodist parsonage on Feb. 22, 1912 in Warrensburgh, the Rev. H.F. Titus was struck in the forehead by a big icicle about four feet long and over six inches in diameter. Fortunately the blow was a glancing one and Mr. Titus escaped with a slight cut and a big headache. He was able to address the congregation on Sunday morning. Had the icicle struck him squarely, it would likely have fractured his skull.

Horse ice racing on Lake George

Winter horse racing on the ice started Feb. 1, 1912 with ideal winter weather at Supervisor R.J. Bolton’s hostelry in Hague. Mr. Bolton’s horse, “Miss Bolton” took first money, a $75 purse. A large crowd of horse racing enthusiasts assembled at the head of Lake George Feb. 12, 1912 to witness the matinee ice races held over the lake’s kite-shaped course under the auspices of the Lake George Driving Association. Officials have arranged to have a three-day meet which will take place the last three days of this month. A number of excellent purses will be offered. Two races took place for purses of $50 each. A town race was held for a prize of ten bushels of oats and five bushels for second place. James Dougray’s “Putnam Jack” of Glens Falls took first money in the first race but in the third heat, James Wilson’s steed, “John O” nosed “Putnam Jack” out at the wire. Considerable local interest is taken in these races and large crowds gather for each event.

Thurman bids fond farewell The Rev. Edwin .H. Hovey, who accepted a call from the Baptist Church at Hagadorn Mills, began his duties there this year on Jan. 7, 1912. Pastor Hovey and his wife, Mary Hadden Frost were given a purse at the

Kenyontown Baptist Church containing over $7 in cash. Mrs. Hovey has rented the former land of her late husband, Miles Frost to David Frost. Rev. Hovey, well loved by his parishioners, preached his last sad farewell sermon on Sunday morning, Dec. 31, 1911 in Thurman.

News roundabout Warrensburgh gained four in population during the month of January, 1912, there having been six births and only two deaths. A large number of Warrensburgh people were in the audience that witnessed the comic opera, “The Spring Maid” on Feb. 12, 1912 at the Empire Theatre, Glens Falls. (Note: The renovated Empire Theatre building is still standing today on South St.) All Adirondack game protectors have been instructed to enforce the Forest, Fish and Game laws relating to hounds running at large in the woods.) Charles Haskin of French Mountain has just completed chopping up a giant tree from which he says he cut out ten and a half cords of wood and his neighbors bear witness. (Note: is south of Lake George Village several miles.) Mrs. B.S. Gurney gave a birthday party for her little son, Walter Gurney and a few of his little playmates were invited. (Note: It was Walter ’s brother, Ben Gurney who designed Warrensburgh’s Floyd Bennett bandstand as a gift to the home town he loved.) It was just 52 years ago, Feb. 27, 1860 that Mathew Brady photographed presidential aspirant Abraham Lincoln just before his most influential speech at Cooper Union in New York. (Note: In the hamlet of Wevertown, a historical sign was erected Nov. 10, 2011 near the community center that commemorates his Johnsburg birthplace. Mathew Brady was of course, the famed Civil War photographer. The picture of Lincoln on the U.S. $5 bill was taken by Mathew Brady.

Letters to the Editor Comments on publisher’s column Dear Mr. Alexander, After reading your piece on the first ammendment, which I agree with, a glaring reality was staring me in the face. Your whole essay discusses government actions that are grossly illegal and unconstitutional. You seam to stick to your argument, while ignoring these abuses to our Constitution, abuses that suggest to the reader the fact that the first ammendment might not even be in effect any more than the other ammendments. That being the case, then what is the point? The health care law is unconstitutional because it violates the 10th ammendment. So instead of discussing which parts of it are unfair, why not some outrage that it was passed at all and assaults our Bill of Rights? Congress has passed legislation that neutralizes every ammendment except the first. Their daly activities in Washington make a mockery of our constitution. You don't mention that mandates are not laws and therefore have no power under law. Or that it is unlawful for Congress to delegate their responsibility of passing laws to any other body. You mention freedoms we have come to take for granted. Most of them no longer exist, and will remain lost to us until and unless we insist that Congress follow the constitution literally. When you take something for granted, it is not noticed when it is no longer there. The Constitution does not provide for health care and should not. I had far better health care 40 years ago than I do now BECAUSE of government intrusion at the bequest of drug and insurance companies and it will be worse, and rationed, under Obamacare. The point you make in your essay is valid but it is a wart on the elephant of Constitutional abuse. If you truly wish to protect the first ammendment, (and you can't save one unless you save them all) then you need to familiarize yourself with the document that bestows those rights we take for granted. When your working knowledge of the Constitution is such that any time government tries to bypass it, you immediately lash out in your opinion column to its defense, then your paper becomes the type of PRESS that was granted freedom in the first ammendment, the very press Jefferson and Madison had in mind. Remember, if we lose our Constitution, and we are closer to that happening than you think, then we have no recourse to the governmental abuse and unfairness your essay talks about. I do not think they would boldly declare it null and void, but it might quietly be moved from the National Archives to the Smithsonian. Think about it. Jeff MacMakin Putnam

There’s another Internet choice To the Adirondack Journal: Regarding the Feb. 4 editorial about broadband access in the Adirondacks, you probably have already heard this but there is another option. I am sending this from Paradox Lake via Verizon Wireless. Using an iphone hotspot along with a wireless booster equipped with a roof antenna we are getting 1 mb/sec download speeds. Previously we only had dial up access.

Expanding cell service in the Adirondacks might be the answer. To Verizon and others there may be a business case to provide both voice and data by expanding their coverage. I know the APA wouldn't care for this but the time has come to allow these necessary services. Jim Hartnett Paradox

Richards Library needs boost in public funding To the Adirondack Journal: Through the 1990s, Richards Library was able to operate on investment earnings from its endowment. The stock market debacles of the past dozen years, however, had disastrous results for the endowment, the same as for other institutions and individuals, necessitating that the library tap its endowment principal to make up for budget shortfalls during the past decade. Richards Library serves an area of 6,000 people, and receives $27,900 in public funding (less than $4.75 per capita, compared to the state-recommended level of $20), and almost all of that comes from the 4,000 people of Warrensburg. The 2012 budget is $81,000. Here are public funding data from three other association (private) libraries in the region that serve populations similar in size to that of Richards Library. The data is from the Southern Adirondack Library System Statistical Summary. • Corinth: $83,000 public funding (2/3 school district, 1/3 municipal), $13.87/capita; • Stillwater: $127,400 (100% municipal), $20/capita; • Greenwich: $84,000 total (36% school district, 64% municipal); $17.20/ capita. Besides those three libraries in Saratoga and Washington counties, every library in Warren County receives at least triple the level of public funding that Richards Library does. The library trustees have proposed a levy to spread the operating cost over the entire area served by Richards Library, not just upon Warrensburg, adding 50% more people to contribute. This is the most equitable way to fund the library’s operations. While state law provides that the school district will collect the levy, this is not a school tax and is unrelated to the school budget. Paul Gilchrist Warrensburg

Drugs are no substitute for treatment To the Adirondack Journal: It is always good to read editorials, like yours, that encourage public awareness of mental health. For too long, our nation has suffered the stigma of mental illness, along with all of its misconceptions. Having “been there” for struggling youth for so many years, I am aware of another aspect of this problem that needs airing. With our youth, psychoactive drugs are being used more and more in a custodial way: To sedate the teen because it is much cheaper than providing therapy. Here are just a few of the alarming statistics that I cite in my recent book:

• On average, 11 million prescriptions for antidepressants for adolescents alone are written every year in the United States. • A Columbia University study recently found a doubling of the rate of prescribing anti-psychotic drugs for 2- to 5year-olds from 2000 to 2007. • The number of prescriptions for mood stabilizers, written for children in the U.S., increased six-fold between 1993 to 2002, from 201,000 to 1.2 million. • Anti-psychotics were the biggest revenue-making drugs of any class, exceeding $14.7 billion per year. Why is this happening? Aside from the financial savings of prescribing drugs rather than providing therapy, the drug industry is the second most profitable business in the world. For one drug, Seroquel — a commonly employed mood stabilizer for adolescents— the company reaped a net profit of $1.7 billion in one year. And here is a partial list of documented side effects from that drug: Suicidal thoughts and actions, depression, new or worse depression, anxiety, agitation, panic attacks, insomnia, irritability, aggressive acts, acting on dangerous impulses, unusual changes in behavior or mood, drowsiness, involuntary muscle spasms, increased liver enzymes, difficulty swallowing, weight gain, sudden drop in blood pressure, dizziness — And this is for a mood stabilizer! There are circumstances when employing psychotropic medication is warranted, but, whenever possible, it should be for the shortest period of time possible. To utilize drugs in the way we do with our youth is to prostitute ourselves to the drug companies, and enslave our children in the name of fiscal expediency. It is immoral! Irv West Thurman

Editorial information not correct To the Adirondack Journal: I must respond to your last Viewpoint editorial because you make some strong statements which are simply not correct. Plan B is emergency contraception and is not an abortion pill. Plan B is the same hormone included in many birth control pills and does not induce abortions. As stated by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, "Emergency contraceptive pills will not cause an abortion. Emergency contraception is not the same as the abortion pill. There is no time when the emergency contraceptive pills available in the United States would end a pregnancy once it has started." Furthermore, it is not affected by the Affordable Care Act because women do not need a prescription from a doctor to buy it. It is already available over the counter from the pharmacy for women 18 years and older. It will remain available over the counter at the pharmacy regardless of this act. I believe it's important for every American to have access to quality health care and the facts. Lynne Macco, M.D. Elizabethtown

A tribute to Reggie Burlingame, until recently Lake George Village’s sewage treatment plant operator, was posted in Shepard Park shortly after his death Saturday, Jan. 28.

Lake George officials recall Reggie Burlingame’s attributes, abilities By Thom Randall LAKE GEORGE — Following the recent death of long-time Lake George Village Sewer Plant Superintendent Reggie Burlingame, local officials voiced fond recollections of not only his professional expertise, but his character. Burlingame, 61, died Jan. 28 at home — with his wife Elly by his side — after fighting throat cancer for about 18 months. Village Mayor Robert Blais said that Burlingame had not only operated the plant with expertise, but he did so with a sense of profound dedication. “Employees like Reggie come along very seldom — he took as much interest in protecting Lake George as he did in his responsibility in operating the wastewater treatment plant,” Blais said. Burlingame won three professional awards, one of them major. About a decade ago, he was named New York State Wastewater Plant Operator of the Year. Last spring, he was honored by the New York Rural Water Association as their "2011 Friend of Rural Water,” Blais said. “Reggie was well known around the state,” he said. Burlingame’s dedication to his work was exemplified by one of his last outings, Blais said, noting that just three days before Burlingame’s death, he rolled into sewer plant in his wheelchair to make sure that everything was running well. Town Clerk Darlene Gunther also praised

Burlingame’s attributes. “He was simply the best,” she said. “We’ll all miss him badly.” Village Public Works Superintendent Dave Harrington praised Burlingame’s knowledge of the plant operations, plus his ability to work well with others in carrying out major projects. “Reggie was certainly one of a kind,” he said. “We've missed him a lot at the plant this past month.” In late December, Blais held a ceremony in which the road to the sewer plant was rededicated as “Burlingame Boulevard” in his honor. Blais said Reggie brightened the lives of people he encountered, day after day, with his vibrant sense of humor and ever-present smile. “Reggie was fun to be around,” Blais said. “Because of his outgoing, positive personality, he was a very valuable member of our community and our village family, and all of us will miss him greatly.” Burlingame was born June 5, 1950 in Syracuse, the son of Anson R. Burlingame of Alabama and the late Glenna Burlingame. Burlingame enjoyed traveling with his wife, tending to his garden, watching NASCAR and golfing with friends. Calling hours were held Feb. 2 at the Regan & Denny Funeral Home in Queensbury, where the funeral services were held the following day, .with Burlingame’s brother-inlaw, Larry Deming, officiating. A reception followed at the Burlingame house in Queensbury.

Warrensburg Town Court

Warrensburg woman accused of scratching man, assault charged

Feb. 1 — Judge Bryan Winslow presiding

• Julie A. Norton, 38, of River St. in Warrensburg was arraigned on a charge of third-degree Assault, based on an incident at about 11 p.m. Jan. 11 at a residence on River St. in Warrensburg. Police said Norton got into a dispute with a man and scratched his face and neck. Judge Bryan Winslow granted the man an order of protection barring Norton from contacting him. Norton's case was adjourned to Feb. 15. • In a plea bargain, Tammy J. Douros, 40, of Saranac Lake was convicted of Driving While Ability Impaired, rather than her original charge of Misdemeanor DWI. She was granted a Conditional Discharge and assessed fines and surcharges of $760. She was ordered to attend a Victims' Impact Panel session and her license was suspended for 90 days. • Randall S. Waddle, 28, of Indian Lake pled Guilty to third-degree Facilitating Unlicensed Operation, a reduction of an original charged of Aggravated Unlicensed Operation, a Misdemeanor, based on a Jan. 20 offense. In the plea deal, his speeding violation was reduced to Parking on Pavement. • Paul E. Levitsky, 32, of Forest Lake Road, Chester, received an Adjournment in Contemplation of Dismissal on a charge of second-degree Harassment based on an incident at 6:20 p.m. Nov. 15. A woman reported that Levitsky drove his vehicle toward hers, stopped, then squealed his tires as he took off. • The case of landlord Carol Meyer against tenants Joe and Ricci Castro was adjourned to Feb. 15. Meyer contends that the Castros owe $1,520 in late rent payments, for their apartment on Fourth Ave. in Warrensburg. • Permission was granted to landlord Robert Burnham to evict Deborah Sanderson, from her apartment on River St. in Warrensburg. Sanderson did not show up for court. Although the eviction was granted, a judgement for the money owed was denied because the eviction notice wasn’t served on Sanderson personally. Sanderson owes $2,175, which is three months' rent. • The cases of Victor Aitkin, Ed Bennett, Tracey Cameron, Jeremy Taylor were adjourned to Feb. 15. The case of Corey Bennett, Richard Fox, and Lynnette Post were adjourned to Feb. 29. The case of Nicholas Doerfler was adjourned to March 28. 29700

Winter Carnival from page 1 from noon to 2 p.m Sunday in Battlefield Park. One feature that’s only several years old but has won over the hearts and warmed the souls of Carnival-goers is Saturday afternoon’s bonfire on the beach, complete with acoustic guitar ballads by Richie Ortiz. The event includes marshmallow roasting and the opportunity for both young and old to make their own s’mores at no charge. The bonfire, which begins at 4 p.m., is followed by a colorful array of fireworks at 6:30 p.m. Spectators are likely to see a number of colorful giant kites floating over the lake, as several members of the New York Kite Enthusiasts Club are expected to attend. Kite-flyers say enjoy practicing their sport over Lake George because there seems to be a constant brisk breeze over the lake, and the stark white ice serves as a pristine backdrop for the kites’ vibrant colors. Also brightening the skies will be colorful hot air balloons, conducting liftoffs and a “Moonglow” light-up at dusk Saturday on the West Brook Park property. Other events not depending on the roar of vehicle engines include a series of ice-diving demonstrations both Saturday and Sunday by the Rich Moran Scuba Center. Saturday at noon, area eateries will put their culinary skills to the test in a chowder

cook-off. Also featured this weekend are two scavenger hunts, one for children and another for adults. The contests include challenges prompting participants to discover details of public landmarks around the village. Registration for the event can be accomplished at any time through the weekend, for adult competitors, at Duffy’s Tavern on Amherst St.; or for child contestants, at the Winter Carnival souvenir stand at Shepard Park beach.

Sewer initiative from page 1 installed in a town, as opposed to a full-scale system. Alliance members agreed that Butler will be presenting a letter to the Town Board to get such a project moving forward. It was reported that members of the Alliance met with Chester Supervisor Fred Monroe, who said he’d speak to state Sen. Betty Little and the state Department of Transportation regarding reducing speed limits on the roads that serve as the town entrances. The Alliance’s Farmers Market initiative is also progressing, as permission is now being sought to hold a market on the front lawn of the Chester Town Hall from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Wednesday from June 20 to October 10. Requests for start-up funding were to be aired before the town board

Those that do crave the robust roar of exhaust can participate in the ATV Poker Run on Saturday or take a monster truck ride. Registration for the poker run is at Duffy’s Tavern from 9 to 11 a.m., and the rides on the nine-feet-tall custom truck are available Saturday and Sunday at West Brook Park. This week, the monster truck rides appeared to be a popular thrill for the youngsters and a welcome curiosity for adults. The tavern competition, in which employees and patrons of taverns put their waitstaff

Feb. 14. Also, letters are to be sent to local businesses, inviting them to donate towards advertising, insurance and signs for the market. It was announced that a Snow Cross event is to be held March 10 and 11 at Green Mansions , weather permitting. People from the entire northeast are expected to attend these snowmobile race events. It was noted that currently over 100 snowmobile enthusiasts hav committed to race at the Snow Cross. Reportedly, Ron Walker is working with the North Warren and Warrensburg chambers of commerce to publicize the event. Tom Hill, president of the Northern Warren Trailblazers Snowmobile Club, explained to Alliance members that the area snowmobile trail system is not conducive to ATV travel during the summer months as a majority of the trails are on National Grid property or state land, neither which allow ATVs on their property.

skills to the test, was popular with spectators, whether it was balancing a champagne glass on a tray across a course or a relay with an egg, it evoked smiles in the audience. The Mario’s Restaurant team tied with Sunkiss Ballooning for top honors. Shepard’s Cove employees dominated in a horseshoes competition. Cold, brisk winds over the weekend kept the crowds away except for about 1,700 hardy folks. The stiff winds raised whitecaps on the open waters of Lake George and broke up ice that was forming in the South Basin, and might have supported vehicles by next weekend — now a dubious prospect, Nichols said. “Mother Nature played a trick on us,” she said, noting that the weekends cold temperatures could have been helpful during the week to set up ice. The temperatures in the teens didn’t scare off about 20 brave polar swimmers who dashed into the frigid waters on Saturday, prompting gasps in the crowd. Nichols said the cold weather prompted families to take refuge indoors at King Neptune’s where children’s games and zumba sessions were offered. The eatery was packed with people, she said. “While their children played games, parents got to warm up,” Nichols said. This weekend’s weather, with temperatures well above freezing, is likely to bring out large crowds, as is traditional for this traditional winter festival, now more than half a century old.

Also, it was announced that the Alliance is moving ahead on their Wine-Tasting event, as several local venues have offered to host it. Representatives of the North Warren Chamber of Commerce said that Summerfest will be held the weekend of July 7, and the volunteers are needed. Those interested should contact the Chamber. Pam Morin, the guest speaker for the Alliance meeting, said that she’s available to help coordinate various events in conjunction with the First Wilderness Heritage Corridor program. The effort, she said, was an important element in the long-term success of the Saratoga-North Creek Railway, as well as boosting tourism in the area. The next meeting of the Alliance is to be held at 9 a.m. Feb. 24 in the Panther Mountain Inn. Notes of Alliance meetings can be seen at:

Scouts building an eagle’s Scouts learning to be pioneers nest in the Adirondack region in Warrensburg Troop 100 By Phillip Sherotov GLENS FALLS — It’s heartening to watch the continued success of the Boy Scouts in our area. At a time when many young boys often spend the majority of their time talking and texting on their cell phones, surfing the Internet on their computers, or playing video games, there’s just something reassuring about seeing boys participating and achieving in the scouts. Membership has increased consistently over the past two years in the region, and by the end of 2012 there will be over 1,000 youths in the program according to Patrick Ryan, Unit Service Executive of the Twin Rivers Council. In our region alone, a total of 45 boys earned the status of Eagle Scout over the past year. Ryan confirmed that our district is ahead of the national average. The programs and activities offered through the Boy Scouts provide opportunities for young people that they may not be able to find elsewhere. Community-based learning helps young people learn a number of important skills and dispositions that will give them the confidence to be leaders in their communities. In addition to the increased membership and number of boys earning the rank of Eagle Scout, there were other noteworthy events this year. The Transportation Museum in Plattsburgh put on a district Pinewood Derby for the scouts. A successful Cub Scout camp was held at Camp Bedford, a 150-acre camp owned by the Twin Rivers Council. The Scouting for Food drive provided much needed relief to local communities during the holiday season. Scouts also contributed to hurricane disaster aid this past summer, sandbagging and providing support to those in need.

Looking ahead, the Boy Scouts will be hosting the Tri-District Camporee at Macomb State Park in Plattsburgh along with the Scouts Canada as well as two Cub Scout summer camps. Scott Hayden, the council regional director, has said that he hopes to expand and promote the apprenticeship style work site program “Exploring” which allows scouts to gain practical experience in a number of areas. They also plan to start several new units in the area to increase membership opportunities for young people throughout the region. When asked if there was a moment over the past year that really captured the importance of the scouts, Ryan said, “the smile on a scout’s face when they receive their first rank advancement.” WARRENSBURG — Troop 100 scouts have been busy mastering a range of outdoor and survival skills. With 10 active members, they make up in ability and enthusiasm what they may lack in numbers. Dennis Beers recently achieved the rank of Eagle Scout — a goal he had set last year. Dedicated to community service, they participated in the Memorial Day Parade and American Legion Flag Retirement Ceremony, in addition to helping the elderly with a variety of tasks like yard work. They are very visible in their community and always seek to help. Ray Hensler, Scoutmaster, said the troop

is currently working hard on first-aid and disaster drill response. He feels that his troop’s commitment and enthusiasm comes from the fact that he allows the boys to decide on the activities they want to do. Having the troop members take responsibility for setting up the agenda allows them to develop leadership skills and increases their engagement. For Hensler, part of the value of scouting is that boys learn to be self-reliant while also practicing essential social skills, like teamwork. It was this past fall, while the troop was doing an extended hike down a logging trail that he witnessed just how accomplished his scouts had become. During the hike, scouts had to demonstrate a number of survival and outdoor skills including identify plants, animals, and trees, as well as lighting a fire with just flint and steel. He was deeply impressed by how well they did. “They got that fire going in a matter of seconds,” he said. In April, Hensler will be collaborating with John West, owner of Crossroads, a general store in Chestertown, to provide demonstrations on fishing for his scouts. In March, the troop will learn pioneering skills as they face and learn how to solve the problems that pioneers had to face. This kind of activity is a way for boys to learn problem solving skills and provide them with a real world perspective on the pioneer experience. “It’s a great way to make history come alive,” Hensler said. Also, in partnership with the Sons of the American Legion in Warrensburg, an organization that many of his scouts already belong to, he plans to continue to participate in community events. Working with this organization, Troop 100 will participate in the Fourth of July, Memorial Day, and Veterans Day celebrations.

Lake George scouts in Troop 13 dedicated to their community

Chestertown Scouts in Troop 30 are above-average achievers

By Phillip Sherotov

By Phillip Sherotov

CHESTERTOWN — Joe Klewicki, Scoutmaster for Troop 30, is proud of what his scouts have achieved this past year. The troop has been on a number of exciting trips, participated in community service projects, had two members receive the rank of Eagle Scout, and a total of ten scouts increase their rankings. In September, Tim Hanaburgh became the fourth member of his family to become an Eagle Scout. One of his younger brothers just joined and is already off to a great start. Just this past Tuesday Jacob Hill became the second member of Troop 30 to earn the rank of Eagle Scout. On average, only two out of every hundred scouts achieve this sta-

LAKE GEORGE — Troop 13 has strong ties to the community. Many members from the Pack 20 Cub Scouts continue on into the Boy Scouts. There’s a real sense of keeping the tradition alive and participating in the community. Right now there are 24 registered members, including two who just crossed over from Cub Scouts. Pat Smith notes that the Bay-Ridge Fire Department has been “an outstanding friend to the scouting program” as one of many examples of community support for the scouts. The troop is active in outreach programs. Over the course of the year, they adopt a family for Christmas, conduct a large food drive in the fall, help out during the Lake George Marathon, and participate in many school and community functions, such as cleanups and dinners. While there has been a change in leadership with Grant Gentner taking on the role of Scoutmaster with the assistance of Phil Buttling and Dr. Colin Glascock, the troop has maintained its tradition of community service and individual achievement. Ryan Markwood, Cole Gailor, and Michael Gusek have all earned Eagle Scout status this year. Part of what helps make a scout troop work is getting members involved early. “We encourage the boys to get a good head start on advancement while they are young,” Smith said. In elementary school, they set up tables with parent volunteers to talk to young boys about the scouting. They also try to choose meeting times and venues that are convenient for young people, especially with the increasing demands of school and athletics. Scout leaders want make membership as ac-

tus. In addition, four new members will be joining Troop 30 this month, bringing their active membership up to 19 scouts. Troop 30 is also active in their community. One of the projects Hill undertook as part of earning his Eagle Scout rank was to refurbish and rebuild the sign for the local American Legion in Chestertown. He also put in a sod driveway for them. The troop helps direct traffic during the annual Pug Parade — a popular event where pug owners from all over the state bring their dogs to compete in a Halloween costume competition. Klewicki has said that part of the appeal of his troop is that they are active. They do 10 outings a year plus summer camp. This past summer was the second time that they had run their own independent summer camp for themselves. In December, they took a trip to the Boston Heritage Trail. Some highlights from this trip included scouts visiting the church that signaled Paul Revere to warn people that the British were coming. They also visited the U.S.S. Constitution — the oldest warship of the U.S. Navy. The great thing about these kinds of trips is that they provide scouts with adventure and education. In addition to running their third consecutive independent summer camp in 2012, Troop 30 have some exciting and challenging trips planned. In May, they will be taking on the Cape Cod bicycle trail and whale watching. In August, they will be going on a high adventure trip which will include hiking and 50 miles of canoeing.

cessible as possible. All of these efforts tend to result in scouts who are deeply committed to their troop and their community. Smith said that a recent event “spoke volumes about the type of kids that these Boy Scouts are.” There was a tragic death at the Bay-Ridge Fire Department in Queensbury, which serves as the meeting place for Troop 13. The family of the deceased decided to meet at the firehouse after the services. Since there was a lot to do in terms of cleaning up and preparation, Gentner sent out a last-minute email asking any troop member who was available to help. The response was overwhelming. Just about every member responded, and the troop had the firehouse in great shape in no time at all.

No. Warren topples Lake George for a rare Divisional championship By Thom Randall CHESTERTOWN — Somewhere in the high school coaches’ file cabinets, there’s a yellowed, aging certificate that touts a league championship for the North Warren Girls’ Basketball team. As of Tuesday, North Warren Athletic Director Jason Humiston couldn't find it. The last time the school’s girls basketball team won a League or Divisional Championship, Humiston was either a toddler, or he hadn’t been born yet. For a generation or more, North Warren High School, with the smallest enrollment in the Adirondack League, has had its challenges, going up against moneyed schools with strong athletic programs and a deep pool of athletes from which to select a team. Last week, the Cougars girls basketball team pulled off a major accomplishment, one that’s not been seen in far longer than a generation. They’ve secured first place in the Western Division of the Adirondack League. North Warren upset the traditional powerhouse Lake George Feb. 7 in an epic defensive battle that ended with a stunning lastseconds comeback by the Cougars to clinch the 37-35 overtime win. With about 3 seconds left in regulation play, North Warren Junior Amber Frasier hit a 3-point shot to tie the score and force an overtime. She then hit another three-pointer

midway in overtime, helping North Warren achieve the victory. She was also the top scorer for the game, with 12 points. Wednesday, she talked about that first fateful shot under pressure, when she picked up a loose ball in center court, turned around and aimed for the basket. “My team did not want to lose, and I just did what I had to do — and the ball just went in,” Frasier said. “I felt relieved, the crowd was cheering, my team was yelling — I felt we had a chance now to accomplish what hadn’t been done in....well, forever.” Humiston, a no-nonsense guy who’s generally reserved with his praise, complimented the players for their teamwork and tough defensive play. With Lake George keying in on standout North Warren player Kiera Warner, Lake George dis-

Boys Basketball Corinth 59, Bolton 56 CORINTH — Corinth claimed the home win in overtime after they gained ground for the end-game tie in a 16-10 third quarter Feb. 8. Bolton's Billy Smith led game scoring with 30 points, including three three-pointers. Mitchell jordon followed with 16 points, including a three. Lake George 50, North Warren 41 CHESTERTOWN — The Warriors led by 9 at halftime Feb. 8, and though the Cougars closed the gap a bit with a 12-8 third quarter, Lake George's 15-11 fourth secured the away win. Warrior Joel Wincowski led game scoring with 16 points. Teammate Aaron Chambers also hit double-digits with 10. North Warren's Ethan Schenke led team scoring with 11 points including two threepointers. Kristian Seeley tallied 9 including a three. Hadley-Luzerne 58, Warrensburg 34 LAKE LUZERNE — After a 7-6 first quarter, Hadley-Luzerne turned up the heat,

rupted the Cougars’ normal game, but the team fought hard and persevered against much taller opponents, Humiston said. “They were real physical on Kiera — they upset our rhythm, but we just boxed out and worked hard,” he said. Her aggressive play meant Warner had to sit out much of the third quarter. But she was put back into play for the end of regulation and overtime, during which she maintained the pressure on the Warriors, Humiston said. “Kiera did a nice aggressive job for us — without fouling,” he said. “She played smart.” While Warner was benched, the other players stepped up and filled the void well. Frasier credited the team spirit. “We support each other, and it’s what we really need to win,” she said. “We’re not only a team, but

racking up a distant lead by final buzzer Feb. 8. Burgher Hunter Werner led team scoring with 10. Tyler Williams tallied 8, and Justin McKinney added 7. Lake George 65, Bolton 25 LAKE GEORGE — The Warriors kept Bolton to single-digit scoring in all quarters Feb. 10, leading with a 20-8 first and closing out with a 16-3 fourth. Lake George's Joel Wincowski scored 14 including a three-pointer. Ethan Wincowski added 14. Bolton's Mitchell Jordon led his team with 10, followed closely by Billy Smith's 9. Smith sank two three-pointers. North Warren 41, Warrensburg 35 WARRENSBURG — After a close first half, the Cougars maintained a short lead in quarters three and four to take the away win Feb. 10. Nick Sapienza led North Warren with 14 including a trio of three-pointers. Ethan Schenke tallied 8 with a three. The top-scoring Burgher was Tyler Williams with 11. Justin Baird added 8 in-

we’re like a family.” Coach Hogan praised two other players for their key roles in the victory. “Cassie Maday hit some big shots for us — she played smart — and Margo Broderick played well inside,” he said. Although the victory over Lake George for the Division title is a rare and consequential accomplishment for North Warren, fans and school officials aren’t surprised. This team is the product of a program that has dedicated, inspired coaches and has high expectations for its players, regardless of the school’s small size. Junior Varsity Girls Basketball Coach Larry Warner and Varsity coach P.J. Hogan have the girls practicing on weekends and offseason. They all play AAU ball, summer league, and many of them

cluding both of the team's threes. Fort Ann 56, North Warren 55 CHESTERTOWN — The Cougars closed the fourth quarter leading by 7, but their visitors chipped away until they took the win in the fourth Feb. 13. North Warren's Nick Sapienza led his team with 19 points including four threepointers. Benn Frasier tallied 11. Whitehall 60, Warrensburg 58 WHITEHALL — A tight game Feb. 13 went to the home team in the fourth quarter. Warrensburg's Tyler Williams led team scoring with 15 points. Justin Baird tallied 11, and Tyler Wilcox added 10. Salem 56, Bolton 48 SALEM — Salem's strong mid-game was enough to offset Bolton's 20-13 fourth quarter to secure a home win Feb. 13. Billy Smith led Bolton scoring with 23 points including the team's only three-pointer. Mitchell Jordon followed with 15.

Girls basketball North Warren 51, Warrensburg 23 CHESTERTOWN — The Cougars started their scoring surge with a 16-3 second quarter on their way to a decisive home win Feb. 10. Kiera Warner led North Warren with 16 in-

attend the Skidmore basketball camps to keep their skills sharp. Humiston praised the team for their commitment and the coaches for their ability to inspire the players. “Larry Warner and P.J. Hogan, are doing a tremendous job — they put in a lot of hours and have the players working really hard,” Humiston said. “Now they’re all reaping the rewards.” Frasier talked about such consequences of the countless hours of practice. “We’ve worked so hard on and off the floor,” she said. “Now the feeling is amazing — the Division title is such an accomplishment.” Hogan deferred any credit to others. ”It’s all due to the girls and their hard work, and to Larry Warner for his program with all those AAU tournaments — and the girls’ parents for driving them all over the place,” he said. North Warren followed up their upset victory with a 51-23 win over Warrensburg. Kiera Warner scored 16 points — including two threepointers — and tallied 13 rebounds to lead her team to victory. Cassie Maday had 13 points and five steals. The Cougars were scheduled to play the Adirondack League Championship at 7 p.m. Tuesday Feb. 14 at SUNY Adirondack, versus Fort Edward, who beat Argyle 38-34 in an Adirondack League Eastern Division playoff game held Feb. 11.

Burgher Isabella Szabo led her squad and game scoring with 21 points, sinking five three-pointers in the effort.

ALBANY — Starting Feb. 2, the New York state government began requiring boards to give the public access to their records scheduled for discussion at meetings. Those packets members of the town board, school board or any public board have with them during the meeting, which are listed on the agenda, must now be made available for the public to review before or during the meetings. “Members of the public have on many occasions complained that they cannot fully understand discussions among members of public bodies, even though the discussions occur in public,” states the New York Department of State Committee on Open Government. “For example, a board member might refer to the second paragraph of page 3 of a record without disclosing its content prior to the meeting. Although the public has the right to be present, the ability to understand or contribute to the decision-making process may be minimal and frustrating.” This change to the Open Meetings Law was made so “those interested in the work of public bodies should have the ability, within reasonable limitations, to see the pick-up by calling Jackie Nelson at 504-4334.

records scheduled to be discussed during open meetings prior to the meetings.” The change to the law centers around two types of records: 1) those that are required to be made available pursuant to the Freedom of Information Law (FOIL); 2) and proposed resolutions, law, rules, regulations, policies or amendments thereto. When these records are scheduled to be discussed, they must be made available to the public “to the extent practicable, either prior to or at the meeting.” In order to comply with the amendment, copies of records must be made available to the public prior to or at the meeting for a reasonable fee or by posting them online prior to the meeting. The Committee on Open Government also defines which boards are required to put this material on their websites: “If the agency in which a public body functions (i.e., a state department, a county, city, town, village or school district) ‘maintains a regularly and routinely updated website and utilizes a high speed internet connection,’ the records described above that are scheduled to be discussed in public ‘shall be posted on the website to the extent practicable as determined by the agency…’ The state recommends that agencies put their materials online to save costs associated with requests made under FOIL.
