APA chairman willing to compromise, looking toward reform By Jon Alexander email@example.com RAY BROOK — Adirondack Park Agency Chairman Curt Stiles said this week he’s willing to consider some changes to the APA Act, including one that would doubtlessly delight many local leaders. In a commentary released Friday, Stiles wrote that moving enforcement hearings into local courts is a concept with merit. “The use of the local court system for enforcement cases is one idea which merits further discussion,” Stiles said. Local officials argue that the agency’s current role of assessing a landowner ’s compliance with APA regulations, then holding quasi-judicial hearings, determining guilt and imposing fines amounts to one board acting as judge, jury and executioner. Most violations never reach the enforcement phase, however, as landowners and agency staff are usually able to negotiate a resolution. According to the annual 2009 APA report, agency staff resolved about 550 cases, while only a handful moved into enforcement proceedings. In a recent state Supreme Court decision, Acting Justice Richard Meyer concluded that the APA Enforcement Committee and its

Former WCS athlete experiences outpouring of support after serious crash By Thom Randall firstname.lastname@example.org WARRENSBURG — Mason Hamilton, a local high school football star from the 1990s, experienced a lot of vocal support from the sidelines during his gridiron days. But now, the support is even more appreciated, widespread and heartfelt, considering the outreach of
friends and community members to Hamilton following his Feb. 6 snowmobile racing accident that shattered his spine and left him partially paralyzed, his parents said Monday. Hamilton, a 1998 graduate of Warrensburg Central School, was seriously injured when he flew off a snowmobile during a warmup lap in a race event on Echo Lake held by the

Warrensburg Elementary teacher Shari Raymond and her first grade students pose recently with the classroom equipment they obtained through the donations of individuals and businesses, including many local ones, through the Web site DonorsChoose.org. WARRENSBURG — A local elementary school teacher and her students are taking action to obtain some needed classroom equipment without an impact on taxpayers. First Grade teacher Shari Raymond and her first grade students have prompted the generosity of local businesses and individuals in obtaining a variety of items for educational use in their classroom. Raymond's class recently acquired a new camcorder which will be used to videotape students reading as well as theatrical projects in the school. In the past, Raymond and her students have obtained an egg incubator for science projects, two webcams to connect with penpals in a Warrensburg, Missouri first grade class, plus a wireless router, an industrial pencil sharpener, an LCD projector, and a projector cart. These fundraising projects saved the school district taxpayers $2,717.
Raymond and her students solicited donations through the website DonorsChoose.org where teachers submit proposals for items needed and people and businesses from virtually anywhere can make tax-deductible donations to fund projects that school districts are unable to bankroll. The Warrensburg first grade class received many generous donations from not only local citizens and businesses, but others located throughout the U.S. as well, Raymond said. At this point, Raymond now has a pending proposal for six Hewlett-Packard laptops to be used in a technology center in the classroom. Hewlett Packard Corp. has matched 50 percent of the total cost leaving $2,400 to be raised through donations. To review the proposal or to donate, visit www.donorsChoose.org/mrs.raymond.

Maple farms readying for visitors Thurman Maple Days are set for March 13 and 14, and sugar bush owners in the region are getting ready to open their sugar houses for tours. Mark and Cheryl Kenyon from Adirondack Gold Maple Farm said this week that she and her husband started to tap their trees a few days before the last storm. Mark goes out on snowshoes daily to check his lines that run from his trees to his processor. During Thurman’s Maple Weekend, Adirondack Gold Maple farm on Bear Pond Rd., Toad Hill Maple Farm on Old Charles Rd. and Valley Road Maple Farm on Valley Rd. will be open for tours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days and the following two weekends as well. Valley Road Maple Farm will again have their famous Pancake breakfast both days from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Each of the maple producers will have maple syrup, maple candy, maple cream, maple peanuts and more for sale. Martin Lumber on South Johnsburg Road will also be demonstrating how they make table tops, counter tops and other products made from the lumber of Maple trees that are no longer producing sap. Cheryl Kenyon said that some Maple trees produce sap for 150 years or longer. Martin Lumber will also have handmade jewelry for sale. Each maple farm produces their syrup in a different way I'm told, stay tuned to Town Talk as I will tour the three producers and see first hand how each maple producer processes it's syrup and candies. Adirondack Gold Maple Farm will also be showing a soap-making video by Sally Feihl of Adirondack Soap & Suds. Considering all these demonstrations and activities, gather the family and go out and visit the maple producers and experience a longstanding local tradition. Maple farms across the state will be joining Thurman during the statewide Maple Weekends March 20-21, and March 27-28. For details, google Thurman Maple Weekend or see: NYSMaple.Com
Church dinner a fundraiser for parsonage The Warrensburg First United Methodist Church at 3890 Main St. has scheduled a roast beef dinner on Saturday March 20, from 4:30-6:30 p.m. The cost of this meal is $9 per person, with children 5 and under eating for free. The meal will consist of Roast Beef with gravy, baked potatoes with sour cream, carrots, peas, homemade rolls with white or chocolate cake for dessert and beverages. The profits will be used to renovate the pastor ’s house. This is a great way to not only help a great cause but also have a great homemade meal without doing the cooking.
Special vote set for school bus leasing Remember to go the Warrensburg Elementary School gym on James St. from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. March 9 to vote on whether to lease three school buses. The special vote will be on a single proposition to lease three buses: one 66 passenger bus, one 48 passenger bus and one 36 passenger bus at an expected cost of $48,000. With this special vote, the board of education seeks to drastically reduce spiraling repair costs and to update the district’s fleet and reduce up-front bus purchase expenses to the district taxpayers. For safety considerations and to meet state regulations, timely replacement of aging school buses is necessary. For the 2010-1011 school year, three buses need to be replaced.Each of the three buses to be retired have logged over 100,000 miles and maintenance costs are escalating.

Board to tackle Stewart’s proposal March 16 On Thursday March 16, the Warrensburg Town Board will hold a public hearing regarding a proposed zone change from Office/Multi-Family to Retail/Commercial at the northeast corner of the intersection of Stewart Farrar Ave. and Elm St. The zoning change is to accommodate a proposed new Stewart's Shop convenience store. The board is empowered to make a decision on March 16 after the public hearing. Prior to this hearing, however the Town Planning Board will be meeting at 7 p.m. March 3 to formulate their recommendation they’ll be passing onto the Town Board. The board is empowered to make their decision on March 16 after hearing the public comment. Many of you have doubtlessly read many opinions expressed in the last several months by local residents in the Adirondack Journal and elsewhere. All have made their feelings known. I hope townspeople turn out in droves to help the town government make this decision, so it reflects the will of the public.

Town revitalization — what’s your opinion? I have driven through Chestertown and seen its many vacant storefronts, and I have read about the recent effort to plan revitalization of their downtown. But recently, while driving home through Warrensburg, I counted seven vacant storefronts on Main Street alone, and I hear that number will soon be eight. While talking to a local entrepreneur recently, we both remarked on how Warrensburg needs more businesses offering vital goods and services. A few we thought would make our town more attractive to new home owners are: a bakery, an apparel store, bookstore, upscale clothing boutiques, a delicatessen, a music store, pet shop, and on and on. Do you have any ideas how we as a town can attract new businesses to Warrensburg? I would welcome your comments and suggestions, I will keep your name anonymous if you wish. This is a hard time in our economy and now is the time to express your ideas. Remember it takes a community to build or rebuild a town. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 623-9744 and I will give you an address if you wish to mail me suggestions or I will write down your dictated response via phone conversation.
Keep your news coming!
Would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude for the kindness and sympathy shown to us at this most difficult time. The outpouring of support from the community, through acts of kindness, condolences and food donations were appreciated greatly. Although our hearts ache for Ben we have found great comfort by the strong showing of friendship and compassion extended to our family. A special thank you to Sister Linda Hogan, Parish Life Director, St. Cecilia’s Roman Catholic Church, Alexander Funeral Home, Grace’s Restaurant, George Henry’s for the thoughtfulness and detail put into honoring and celebrating Ben’s life.

ASSESSORS INSTALLED — The Warren County Assessors Association recently elected its officers for 2010-2011, and taking the oath of office were area assessors (left to right) Lauren Stack, Greg Klingler, Teri Ross, with New York State Assessors Association President Peggy Jenkins (right) conducting the ceremony. Teri Ross of Queensbury was sworn in as President of the Warren County group, Greg Klingler-of Warrensburg as Vice President, Susan Baker of Thurman and Secretary, and Lauren Stack of Glens Falls as Treasurer. In her premier speech to the group, Ross said she hoped to develop better community relations through the use of the Internet and the local press. With taxes on the increase and the economy down, she said, property assessments are often misunderstood.

SATURDAY March 6, 2010
Carnival concludes with high spirits despite ice, wet snow By Thom Randall email@example.com LAKE GEORGE — Warm weather created some problems for the fourth weekend of Lake George Winter Carnival, but as the month-long fest concluded Sunday, organizers said it was a highly successful year anyway. The car ice racing series was cancelled because of slush on the surface of Lake George that couldn’t effectively be removed, plus thawing of ice on the perimeter of the race course raised safety concerns, according to Kathi Kokalas of the Carnival Committee. “What can you do — we all have to contend with Mother nature,” she said. “We made the best of it and did what we could.” Sled dog races set for the weekend were cancelled on Saturday due to the mushy snow conditions that might injure the dogs’ feet, but weather improved and volunteers helped out so the races could be held Sunday, she said. The events were held by the New England Sled Dog Racing Club. Thomas Hahn, a sled dog club member from Williamstown, N.J. said he was impressed by how dozens of people helped spread fresh snow out over the impassable portions of the trail and helped however they could to keep the races on schedule. Hahn owns 34 Siberian Huskies, the traditional long-distance sled-dog breed. Hahn said the volunteers included Chamber of Commerce members, Village and Town employees, and Carnival committee members. “It was a real joint effort, and it was so
nice to see everybody enjoy the winter activities,” he said. “It worked out really good, and it was amazing to see the number of spectators interested in the sport.” Reportedly the sled dog group is coming back to Lake George next year because of the friendly reception the racers experienced. Kathi Kokalas said she was impressed by the number of Polar Plunge participants, with a lot of new participants at Shepard Park beach, willing to dash into the frigid water to the delight of the crowd. Several of the Plungers wore costumes, including Shelly Whiteman of Hague, who was garbed as an alligator. The winner of the grand raffle was Justin Warren of Bolton Landing, who won a 2010 Polaris 550 snowmobile. Also popular were the children’s activities — hosted at King Neptune’s lounge — which included a visit by the Sesame Street character Elmo, she said. The annual chili cook-off attracted a substantial crowd, Kokalas said. The winner of the contest was the Log Jam, with their black bean chili. Runner-up was The Village Blacksmith at Fort William Henry; and third was a tie between Mario’s Restaurant and Holiday Inn-Turf. Kokalas said her group had already begun to plan for next year ’s Carnival — the 50th anniversary of the fest. “Overall, we had a very successful year — the crowds seem to get bigger every year,” she said, noting that during 2009 and 2010, traditional activities were revived, and new participatory events were launched. “We’re starting now to make our 50th anniversary an exceptionally good year,” she added.
Polar Plungers dash out of the waters of Lake George Sunday onto Shepard Park Beach during the concluding events of this year’s Winter Carnival events. Organizers said this year’s activities many of them new or newly revived, drew large crowds.

The school is also looking for donations towards improving the playground. Checks for this purpose can be mailed in to the school, or dropped off at the school office.
Over the backyard fence Next week it will be time to start tomato and pepper seeds in the house to get ready for spring planting.

Isaacs and Morehouse welcome new child Gabrielle Isaacs and Alex Morehouse of North Creek are proud to announce the birth of a son born Thursday Jan. 28 at Glens Falls Hospital. At birth, he weighed 6 pounds, 14.5 ounces and was 20 inches long. The child has been named Evan Matthew. Proud grandparents are Sue Isaacs of Warrensburg, Jodi Blake of Warrensburg, and Steve Palmer of Glens Falls. Great grandparents are Larry and June Germain of Thurman.
Over the barnyard fence Are the robins back already? A local lady was shocked to see a flock of birds in Glens Falls that as she drove closer turned out to be robins on a particularly snow covered lawn. This was on Feb. 18 way way too early for birds to fly back from the south. However, our editor tells me he has had several flocks of hundreds of robins land in his yard over the past several weeks on their way north. These aren’t the only sign of spring we’ve experienced. There’s a neighbor up here who is trying to rush the season and he was out tapping maple trees on Feb. 19 and guess what? The sap was running — perhaps due to the near-40 degree days.
Thurmanites: Democrats, lay off Paterson We’re read the gossip, or comments on Tiger Woods and Gov. Paterson recently, so when do we get the lowdown on Andrew Cuomo or others running for offices? Can’t we have some clean politics, b3cause after all, how many of us haven’t got “bones” in our closets? A fair number of people up in Thurman think Paterson — who was the first Democrat ever in Albany to try to stop the unrestrained spending — was shafted politically by his fellow party members. Paterson was the first Democrat in Albany to warn about how extreme cutbacks in government were necessary, due to the collapse of Wall St. and the resulting plummeting state tax revenues. Maybe he got shafted because he was a fiscal conservative!

Bolton Central Social Studies teacher Paul Weick assists student Tyler Calzada get into costume as The Wiz for a rehearsal of the upcoming high school musical of the same name. Weick is director of the show, to be presented March 19 and 20. Directing the school musical again this year is secondary Social Studies teacher Paul Weick. Weick said he chose this show because of the memorable music in it, such as the popular "Ease on Down the
Road," and the humorous script. "The Wiz" is based on the novel The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz by L. Frank Baum and set to soul and jazz music.
Bolton senior citizens collecting goods for soldiers overseas BOLTON LANDING — Area citizens are encouraged to donate a variety of goods and non-perishable foods to be sent to National Guard soldiers stationed overseas. A collection receptacle for these donations has been placed in the entrance of Bolton Town hall by the Bolton Senior Citizens group, which is coordinating the local donation effort. Bolton’s donations will be added to the donations from other Warren County senior groups before being packaged for delivery. Pat and Bob Pratt are the Town of Bolton’s representatives to the Warren County Office of the Aging, and the Pratts and other representatives to the county agency will be bringing the donated supplies to its monthly meeting.
Guidelines for suggested donations are: personal hygiene products; flea collars and powder; small size cans — with pop-top lids — of food like tuna, beans and franks, pasta products and chili; plastic utensils and plates; greeting cards; paper and pens; paperback books; puzzle books, Frisbees and balls; flip-flop sandals; small flashlights and batteries; dried fruits and nuts; hard candy; instant drinks; energy and breakfast bars; and boxes of soup. A more complete list is taped to the underside of the donation receptacle lid in the town hall. No glass containers, chocolate or pork products will be accepted. The Pratts express thanks in advance for donations to the soldiers.

6 - ADIRONDACK JOURNAL • OPINION
•100 Years Ago – March, 1910• Hard winter, but better days coming
arch came in like a lamb. Six inches of snow fell on Feb. 23, 1910. It was light soft snow that fell which was followed by what the schoolboy characterized as “air in a hurry” and as it blew it picked up the fuzzy particles and whirled them into space. After frolicking about, tossed hither and yon, these flakes settled on cleared sidewalks or in the country on the roads which were broken open to traffic with such difficulty only a short time before. The ice jams that formed at North River have moved downstream. The amount of ice blockage that is left is still backing up a large amount of water, inundating the road in places between North River and North Creek. Many people from out of town drove to North River on Sunday to look at the great jam of ice and snow. Mrs. Arthur Cleveland, who has been staying with her mother Mrs. John Dunlap since the breaking up of the ice, has finally been able to return home now that the danger is past. The ice in the Schroon River is intact but honeycombed and is liable to go out at any time. The Warrensburgh Woolen Mill (now 18 Milton Ave. lot) is the only industry suffering because of present conditions. The ice has backed the water up into the mill’s tailrace and stopped the wheel and operations are suspended in consequence. Now that blessed March has arrived, the most reliable harbinger of spring is with us and we can now afford a little “sugar snow,” as the backbone of winter has been broken.
Signs that spring have finally arrived Spring is here, even if she is at times a little bit chilly. Log hauling was brought to a standstill by the thaw. In some places the water is three feet deep in the roads. Buds on pussywillows have even been found by genial Tom O’Connor of the Adirondack Hotel (now the location of Rite Aid). Long sprouts are starting to venture forth from the potatoes stored in his cellar. Many animals are suffering from cases of the epizootic. Our sleighing is about over and the farmers are preparing for sugar making. George Jenks of Chestertown tapped 75 trees on March 5, 1910 on Landon Hill. It is indeed rather early in the year but by the next day, some of his buckets were nearly full. The snow has settled rapidly under the warm sunshine of the past few spring-like days. A robin was seen March 4 at The Glen and one was also seen by Mrs. A.W. Baker in North Thurman.
Controversy brews over pond’s name Now that the battle is raging over whether the name of historic Sandy Hill should be changed to Hudson Falls, nothing could be more absurd than the local attempt to change the name of Bond’s Pond, Warrensburgh’s historic
little body of water, to Echo Lake. The latter appellation was supposed to be more euphonious than the former which was named for William Bond, the earliest settler of the town who moved here in 1786 on a tract of land near the pond. The name of Bond’s Pond should be preserved and respected accordingly. (Note…now that we have put up with the silly “new name” for 100 years, let’s get together and convince the Town Board to change the name back to how it rightfully belongs!)
State to acquire forest land Several local Warren County men in the charge of Dr. Henry W. Coffin of Glens Falls, an expert forester, have gone to the Fulton Chain region to measure timberland which is to be taken by the state for a forest preserve. The members of the party are Dr. Griffin, Frank Mullen, Thomas Minahan, L.D. Bull and Jerome Hubbell. The work will occupy about a year and during that time the men, who act in the nature of appraisers in condemnation proceedings, will take measurements over a tract of 11,000 acres owned by the St. Regis Pulp and Paper Co.
Civil War soldier dies Willard Locke, 66, over 40 years a resident and highly respected citizen of Indian Lake, died March 3, 1910 at the family home after a period of several months of suffering with cancer of the throat. He was the son of Willard Sr., and Maria Goodspeed Locke and was born at Johnsburgh on Dec. 2, 1844. He went with his parents to Indian Lake in 1855. He was later married to Miss Eliza Morrill of Lake Pleasant who survives him. They had two daughters, Nancy Ward and Edith King and three sons, Nathaniel, Robert and Ralph Locke, all of Indian Lake. Two sisters, Mary McCane and Ellen McCormick and three brothers, Joseph, Hosea and Marvin Locke survive him. The deceased served one year in the Civil War as he enlisted in 1864 in the 175th regiment, Co. D., N.Y. Vols. Thirty Masonic craftsmen marched from the church behind the casket to the cemetery in Indian Lake.
Aristocrat gone astray A beautiful Angora kitten, a blue-blooded aristocrat of the feline tribe, owned by Miss Maude Cunningham, a gift from her brother, Fred Cunningham, strayed away from the prestigious family home on Main S. and was last seen on Elm St., Warrensburgh. It is white with a black spot between its ears and the lady is very attached to her furry little pet who likes to wander. She is offering a reward of $3 for its return. (Note…Maude Cunningham was the last member of her family to live in the historic home on the corner of Main and Stewart Farrar streets that was torn down in the year 2000, angering many townspeople who were upset to see the beautiful well-preserved 1850 mansion destroyed.
SATURDAY March 6, 2010
Now, there’s a plan for a gas station and convenience store to take its place, which has again upset many. Maude Cunningham, 34 years old in 1910, raised the reward to $5 after two weeks of no response.)
New grocer in town Former Mechanicville resident J.P. Rigner, who recently purchased Charles E. Lavery’s general store at the foot of Osborne Hill, is now in charge of the business and is rapidly becoming acquainted with Mr. Lavery’s former customers. He is a gregarious man and a good mixer who will surely run a bustling business. Harry Streeter has been employed as delivery clerk and John Streeter is assisting in the store. (Note…The hill that ran from the fire department down to the Osborne Bridge was called Osborne Hill, Paddy Hill, Bakery Hill and Lavery Hill by some. The store was on the corner, directly across the street from Sturdivan’s Bakery, now Riverside Gallery, and was built around 1880 by Halsey Herrick.)
News roundabout The store of John McPhillips at The Glen was broken into Sunday night, March 13, 1910 and a large amount of dry goods together with about $10 in currency was taken. A nice deer fearlessly walked into the Henry Gilpatrick’s dooryard in Adirondack and than walked up the road as unconcerned as could be. In South Horicon, a little daughter, Rosamund Jessica Blow arrived March 6, 1910 at the home of the Harmon Blow family. Judson Russell cut his foot quite badly while cutting stove wood in the woods and Dr. Frazier dressed the wound. Carl Wheeler of West Bolton bought a span of horses of Mr. Moffitt of Pucker Street recently. Ludwick Wilsey is still drawing wood to Warrensburgh. Winifred Brewster, six months, the infant daughter of Edward Brewster of Warrensburgh, died of acute broncopneumonia. William Hayes has traded his residence property on Ridge St., Warrensburgh with Jesse Eldridge of Thurman for the William Welch farm there. In Warrensburgh, Lincoln Tucker has bought the residence property on South St., owned by the heirs of Fanny Bowen and has moved into the house. (Note… E. Lincoln Tucker was the husband of Warrensburg school teacher, Helen A. Bowen Tucker who was 100 years old in 1971 when she died.) In Chestertown, Fred Tripp is home after he has been driving team at Long Lake West on a lumber job all winter. Miss Mazella Aldrich is confined to her home with chicken pox. Miss Ella Hayes of Bolton is teaching at the Darrowsville School. Readers are welcome to contact Adirondack Journal correspondent Jean Hadden at email@example.com or 623-2210.

Thanks for the help!
To the editor: The day of Nov. 27, 2009 may have represented for me an Eagle crashing in flames when I endured my major car accident. However, I rose up from the ashes and got well, thanks to a lot of people: emergency responders with the Galway Fire & Rescue, the first responders to and witnesses of the accident, the Albany Medical Center staff, Minerva Rescue Squad members, and the nursing students from Excelsior College who helped out at Albany Med during my resulting operations and recovery. Heartfelt thanks also go to the staff at Glens Falls Hospital’s patient rehabilitation unit, Total Care Rehab, my parents, my siblings, and to my friends, neighbors and community for the many cards sent to me. Also, I deeply appreciate the moral support from my “Great Escape grandmothers,” and various community members, my sister, from Hot Mama, and other friends — and everyone else who helped me through my ordeal. Thanks a million! Kevin Bennett Olmstedville

Job Discovery features advice, information QUEENSBURY — The public is invited to explore work and career opportunities at the upcoming 22nd annual Job Discovery event, set for Thursday March 18 in the Adirondack Community College gym. The event, this year from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., features representatives of more than 60 employers, offering information and advice on careers in their respective organizations. One of the event organizers, Mike Irish of Warrensburg, said that Job Discovery now offers more than ever for job seekers, considering the recent upheaval in the economy. “This is a vital event because so many people are out of work and looking to make career changes,” he said. In the past, more than 2,000 people have attended the event, and participating employers that have presented at other job fairs have stated that this is the premier event of its kind — and that they use the contacts they’ve made at the fair for future hiring considerations. This year, Job Discovery features workshops designed to assist those looking for work, and resume advice from employers. The workshops are “Re-evaluate your Job Search – Making the Transition” from 9 a.m. to 9:45 a.m. and “Job Search Basics” from 11 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. The Job Fair is free and open to all. Featured opportunities presented by employers traditionally include full- and parttime jobs; year- round work as well as seasonal positions, Irish said.

Bands ’N Beans: more chili, more music at this year’s huge party By Thom Randall email@example.com LAKE GEORGE — The party that annually surpasses all others in the North Country may have eclipsed itself this year, said event organizer John Strong of the sponsoring Lake George Arts Project. The 19th annual Bands N’ Beans fest, set for Sunday March 7 from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m., may have more live entertainment and and likely a record number of restaurants participating in its signature chili contest, Strong said. “We have more music and more food — perhaps the most ever,” he said of the annual event, held at Roaring Brook Ranch off Rte. 9N. “We have some of the best chefs in the area participating, and they love to outdo each other with their recipes.” Top this off with a forecast of sunny, warm weather, and the landmark event may be jammed with people welcoming in spring, he said. The Lake George Arts Project’s festival of chili and homegrown music — a fundraiser for the organization — features hundreds of people jamming the
dance floor, gyrating to homegrown music while others are savoring chili concoctions prepared by dozens of restaurants and individuals. Restaurants take the chili competition very seriously, vying for bragging rights that will gain them renown. Annually, the music is as varied as the ingredients in the chili. While partyers have enjoyed chili spiked with venison, elk and ostrich — to name a few of the creative varieties — the music has been equally as diverse. The event will have acts performing on two stages simultaneously through the afternoon, with the more intimate venue hosting the acoustic offerings. This year ’s lineup encompasses folk, country, folk-rock, roots music, dance bands and straightforward rock-and roll. Featured performers include Chris Ballini, Phil Camp, Rich Ortiz, Tequila Mockingbirds, Folding Sky, Jim Gaudet and the Railroad Boys, Stony Creek Band, Alan Payette Band, Big Medicine and Chain Lightning. Whew. Headlining an extensive silent auction will be a Fender Strat electric gui-
tar donated by Ray Supply of Glens Falls. The silent auction includes a variety of items from local businesses, including dinners, clothes and accommodations. Annually raising almost $18,000 for the Arts Project, the event is the non-profit group’s largest fundraiser. Admission is $20, and tickets are available at the door. Each of the 1,000 or so expected attendees is able to vote for their favorite chili in both the restaurant and individual categories. For details, contact the Arts Project at 668-2616 or visit www.lakegeorgearts.org Strong said Tuesday he wasn’t quite sure how Bands N’ Beans became the premier party in the North Country. “With all this music, musicians and creative chili, it just has such a great vibe to it,” he said. “Also, the days are getting longer, and people are ready to break out.” Strong added that the event has continued to grow in size and reputation, attracting more people from greater distances. “The bar goes higher each year,” he said.
Spreading, serious epidemic is subject of film GLENS FALLS — An acute, progressive, debilitating affliction is spreading in the public undiagnosed, according to the documentary film Under Our Skin, which will be showing at 2:30 p.m. March 6 in Crandall Library. “This film sheds light on an epidemic that is in our homes, schools and community,” said film sponsor Christina Fisk, whose child is enduring the illness — Lyme Disease. The award-winning documentary, sponsored by the Adirondack Lyme Disease Foundation, presents a disturbing expose about how our medical system is failing to address one of the most serious epidemics of our time, Fisk said. People with chronic Lyme Disease are often mis-diagnosed as having chronic fatigue syndrome, lupus, fibromyalgia, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), multiple sclerosis, arthritis, or sometimes they receive no diagnosis, she said. The March 6 showing is offered at no charge. Members of the Lyme Disease Foundation will be available to answer questions after the film. Details are available online at www.adirondacklymediseasefoundation.com.

Andrew Brodie of Lake George uses a push-broom to remove nearly two feet of snow off a neighbor’s car.

Chairman, Commissioner Cecil Wray, had overstepped its legal bounds when it attempted to impose jurisdiction over the building rights of town of Essex farmer and former Wall Street executive Sandy Lewis. The agency is currently championing three legislative bills that would amend the APA act. Two of the bills – a community housing bill and a planning fund bill – have garnered support from local governments and officials. “As an administrative agency, the APA has an established role in the revisions and definitions of its rules and regulations,” Stiles said. A third bill meant to streamline the agency application review process has come under greater scrutiny, especially a provision that would remove the agency’s requirement for a public hearing during an application review. The three bills have gained Democratic support in the state Senate and have been sponsored by Senate Finance Committee Chairman Carl Kruger. No members of the Assembly have agreed to sponsor the legislation. Stiles said the agency remains dedicated to its core mission of preserving the beauty and environment of the Adirondacks, while also safeguarding the region’s economy and the needs of its people. “Our staff and Board remain committed to the legislative intent of the Agency’s mission and to the work that must be accomplished for the future of the Park economy and environment,” Stiles said. “Together we share in an important responsibility to the people of the Adirondack Park’s communities, seasonal residents, visitors and environment, as well as to the legacy of what the Adirondack Park will be now and in the future.”

Hamilton From page 1 outreach, Isaacson said Tuesday. Morgan was getting a lot of inquiries via Facebook about his brother’s condition, but because the way the social networking site is designed, it made sense and allowed more efficient access to launch a separate page devoted just to Mason and his recovery, Isaacson said. A day after the crash, Isaacson had the Facebook site up and running, and he and Morgan fine-tuned it, eventually turning it over to Mason to administrate as he got better. Friends with Mason since they were 5 years old, Nick said he wanted to create a convenient way all Mason’s many friends could stay in touch without clogging the hospital or Sunnyview’s visiting rooms. “You couldn’t ask for a better friend or man than Mason — he’d do anything for anybody,” Isaacson said Tuesday. “I wanted to set up a way people could show their support and love
so he could pull through.” He said the “We Support Mason Hamilton” Facebook page provided a way that hundreds could show support without putting an unintended burden on Mason and his recovery. “This is a way all of us could show mass support without everybody clamoring down there,” he said. “This is a guy we all love and care for, and hopefully the response — it’s heartwarming — will help him get better.” Shelly Hamilton said the response from the community through Facebook has surpassed all expectations. “I knew he had a lot of friends, but this is overwhelming,” she said. “Facebook was such a great idea — it’s like a giant electronic kiosk — the page took on a life of its own.” Mason’s friends are helping in other ways, too, Shelly Hamilton said. As Mason is employed in contracting, many of his friends are too — and now they’re helping out by retrofitting Mason’s home to make it barrier-free and accommodate a wheelchair, she said. “It’s absolutely amazing what they’re doing

for Mason,” she said. Others are supporting him in other ways — by raising money for his medical and recovery expenses by selling Mason-branded T-shirts or other items. Contractor and friend Craig House is selling T-shirts bearing Mason’s signature and racing number and emblazoned with the slogan “Strength — True Greatness Comes When You are Tested.” Kate Yarmowich Belden said Monday night she and others are planning a gala benefit event, tentatively set for later this year at Echo Lake Lodge, to help out Mason. Shelly said Mason was paralyzed from the hips down, but due to substantial abrasion of his spinal cord from the impact of hitting the ice when thrown from the snowmobile. She said doctors don’t know whether or when he’ll regain feeling and control in his legs again, but all are hopeful. She said the crash was a “freak accident” at a relatively low speed, noting that Mason is experienced in high-speed racing, and has en-
dured many crashes, including walking away from collisions at speeds up to 90 mph. Shelly said the caring support Mason is experiencing includes that from his employers, Donnelly Construction of Mechanicville. The firm is keeping Mason at work while he’s recovering in Sunnyview, by giving him construction estimating and bidding work on the computer. “His bosses are extremely supportive,” she said. Folks who want to send cards to Mason may contact him at Sunnyview Rehabilitation Hospital, 1270 Belmont Ave. Schenectady, NY 12308. Belden said the outpouring of caring for Mason was heartwarming — and very appropriate. “His friends really rallied,” she said. “He has an amazing support group now — and that shows a lot about his character — Mason is easy-going, fun-loving, has a positive attitude, he’s incredibly generous, and he’s pleasant to all those around him.”

Study: New Yorkers are smoking less but gaining weight By Chris Morris firstname.lastname@example.org ALBANY — A new study shows a dramatic drop-off in smoking rates among New Yorkers. Unfortunately, that’s not necessarily translating to better health overall for residents of the state. The study, released recently by the New England Journal of Medicine, also shows that obesity is on the rise. American Cancer Society spokesman Chuck Reed said this week that smoking is down 20 percent since 1994, but obesity rates are up a whopping 48 percent. That, Reed said, wipes out any gains made by the plunging tobacco rates The trends for tobacco use aren’t unique to New York. Nationally, the American Cancer Society has found that smoking is down over the last 15 years. Reed says a good percentage of Americans aren’t aware of the direct link between obesity and cancer. “One of the scary things that we found in this recent survey is that 50 percent of the people don’t know that there is direct correlation between obesity and cancer,” he said. According to Reed, if all U.S. adults became nonsmokers of a normal weight by 2020, the average life expectancy would increase by nearly four years. The point, Reed says, is that simply quitting smoking isn’t enough if you want to be healthier. “If you’re going quit smoking, which we encourage you
to do, take it one step further and also maintain a healthy body weight,” he said. “Because that way, you’re making positive lifestyle choices and you can live longer and you can enjoy your life more”.

WCS, BCS recognized for anti-tobacco efforts
Recognized for their efforts in curbing student tobacco use were area educators: (front, left to right): Warrensburg Central Superintendent Timothy Lawson, WCS Health teacher Darlene Gordon, Bolton Central counselor Denise Clark, Ellen Predmore of Ballston Spa, Laura Colombo of Granville, and Thomas Abraham and Andrew Cook of Hartford; (rear: WCS high school principal Doug Duell, BCS Principal Damian Switzer, BCS Counselor Michelle Borgh.
GLENS FALLS — On the eve of the recent annual Great American Smokeout, nearly 100 community leaders and educators gathered for the Southern Adirondack Tobacco-Free Partnership’s community recognition ceremony, held at the Charles R. Wood Theater in Glens Falls. Dozens of businesses, organizations, schools and municipalities from Warren, Saratoga and Washington counties were honored at the event for their efforts to promote community health and reduce the harm caused by tobacco use. Rachel Iverson, of the New York State Tobacco Control Program said that by working together and concentrating on the key effective strategies, lives would be saved. “By countering and undermining the tobacco companies’ criminal tactics, there will be one million fewer smokers in New York in two years — living healthier, happier, richer lives because of your hard work.” The schools honored for their work with the Tobacco-Free Healthy Schools Program included the Warrensburg Central School District and Bolton Central School District. Warrensburg Superintendent Tim Lawson, High School Principal Doug Duell and Health Teacher Darlene Gordon were on hand to accept the award for the school community. “It is rewarding for everyone in the community to focus on opportunities to protect kids from making unhealthy decisions regarding tobacco use,” Duell said. “This program helps our district's students develop an awareness regarding the dangers of tobacco.” Staff in attendance to accept the award for Bolton Central School included Principal Damian Switzer and School Counselors Michelle Borgh and Denise Clark. Principal Damian Switzer said the Tobacco-Free Healthy Schools Program has been useful. “It provides valuable resources to our school community that promote healthy choices for everyone,” he said The Tobacco-Free Healthy Schools Program helps schools statewide to establish and enforce effective tobacco-free policies in compliance with federal and state laws. The program provides schools with technical assistance to develop, communicate and enforce comprehensive tobaccofree school policies. The program in Warren and Washington Counties is implemented by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Saratoga County.

Kids spend more time in a virtual, instead of a natural world
lthough I passed the half-century mark a few years back, I still believe I was a kid during the modern era. Sure, I remember dialing only four numbers to call a friend, but the fact that I actually ‘dialed’ a phone, rather than pushed buttons, is likely a better indication of my current technological prowess. I guess what really dates me is that I watched the original moonwalk, 25 years before Michael Jackson performed it. I remember returning home after school in hopes of watching Gunsmoke or Superman on one of the only two television channels that had reception. My mother would have none of it and regularly booted us out of the house, “Be sure to be home by dark,” she would add before shuffling us along, “And have fun!” Out the door we’d go and head down the street to find something to do. Occasionally, we actually indulged in constructive recreation such as fishing, hiking, biking or BB gun wars. Depending upon the season, there were always a few ‘not so constructive’ options such as tossing apples, pumpkins or snowballs off the town hill. Sure, we knew right from wrong, but the risks of getting caught simply added to the excitement. Besides, in a small town, we recognized the locals and avoided pegging snowballs at a neighbor ’s car, but Lord help the poor trucker, who happened to be traveling along Route 9 in the early evening. In a single pass, his rig would appear as if he had plowed through the community’s gardens, which we had usually plundered for ammunition. Good or bad, such experiences defined my generation. For the most part, we did it all outdoors, in all seasons and in all types of weather. Our small acts of rural terrorism occasionally included a late night dip in a neighbor ’s swimming pool, which rarely caused any permanent damage. It was good, clean fun and it was always accomplished outdoors with little adult supervision. We shot bb guns, rode mini-bikes and actually stayed out after dark (without the protection of a cell phone) and lived to tell about it. Today’s kids are growing up in a far different world than I grew up in so many years ago. As can be expected, they are technically literate, since technology has always been a major focus of their lives. They're multi-taskers and are proficient at juggling sports, school and the constant communication demands of social interests. They use the Internet for entertainment via online videos, online games and virtual worlds or to download music and use social networking sites. Cell phones have made their communications immediate, whether texting messages to friends or visiting a website, it is accomplished instantly in the palm of the hand. Despite the convenience of such modern amenities, today’s kids have less freedom, due primarily to several generations of parents that had too much. They also have a huge, daily load of schoolwork and are under constant pressure to fulfill expectations to possess either a perfect resume by age 18, or have the SAT scores necessary to be
accepted by a college that guarantees their success. It was much easier being a kid in the day of Leave it to Beaver and Andy of Mayberry. With so many responsibilities, it’s a wonder that today’s kids have any time to play, yet the most disturbing news is that their play is far different than anything we could have possibly imagined. “This is a stunner,” explained Donald F. Roberts, a Stanford communications professor and an author of a study by the Kaiser Family Foundation, “In the second report, I remember writing a paragraph saying we’ve hit a ceiling on media use, since there just aren’t enough hours in the day to increase the time children spend on media. But now it’s up an hour.” Even while conducting the survey of more than 2,000 students in grades 3 to 12 from October 2008 to May 2009, media use was changing. “One of the hot topics today is Twitter, but when we first went into the field and began interviewing, Twitter didn’t exist,” a researcher explained. According to the study, the average American youngster now spends practically every waking minute, except for time in school, using a smart phone, computer, television or other electronic device. Those ages 8 to 18 spend more than seven and a half hours a day with such devices, compared with less than six and a half hours five years ago, when the study was last conducted. And that does not include the hour and a half that is spent texting, or the halfhour they talk on their cell phones. And since most are youngsters are multitasking and surfing the Internet while listening to music or texting while online, they manage to pack nearly 11 hours of combined media content into that seven and a half hours. The study’s findings shocked its authors, who had concluded in 2005 that use could not possibly grow further. It also confirmed the fears of many parents whose children are constantly tethered to these media devices. It found, moreover, that heavy media use is associated with several negatives, including behavior problems and lower grades. The recent study revealed that media consumption has grown far more in the last five years than it did from 1999 to 2004. The increase is believed to be due to sophisticated mobile ‘smart phone’ technology and portable, electronic devices such as iPods and video downloads which allow teens to access media in their pocket or beds. Youths now report spending more time listening to or watching media on their cell phones, or playing games, than talking on them. In less than a decade, cell phones have morphed from a communications tool to an entertainment device.
Adults that take the time to introduce their children to the ways of the woods and waters will be assured a willing companion for future adventures. Additionally, electronics are available to the kids 24/7, as one child explained, “At night, I can text or watch something on You Tube until I fall asleep. It lets me talk on the phone and watch a video at the same time, or listen to music while I send text messages. I also use it as an alarm clock since it has a really annoying, ring tone!” Growing up, we never thought our parents knew as much as they thought they did about what we were doing, but now technology has created a world where our own children are even further removed from parental oversight. They are virtually going to places we had never considered. As a result, it is imperative that parents provide today’s children with a grounded experience, on hard ground. It’s also much easier, and more fun, to wake up on the hard ground at a young age. Most of us didn’t simply wake up one day and decide that we were going to be outdoor enthusiasts. Something or someone typically provokes the decision and it usually began in childhood, which is the best time to expose people to outdoor fun. For the majority of outdoor travelers that I know, the process usually started as a kid while canoeing with a Boy or Girl Scout troop, attending Summer Camp, skiing with a family friend or learning how to hunt or fish from a favorite uncle. During the summer, camping trip provided opportunities to hike, explore and see wild animals and pick up insects with our hands. If our initial experience in the outdoors was pleasant and exciting, it eventually grew to become a regular habit as an adult. There has never been such a vital time to share our knowledge and skills. If the outdoor legacy is to live on, it is the responsibility of previous generations to insure the current generation has an opportunity to have their feet in a stream, a rod in their hands or their butt in a canoe. Together, we must make the forests and streams much more entertaining than virtual reality. Joe Hackett is a guide and sportsman residing in Ray Brook. Contact him at email@example.com.

Zany ‘Downhill Derby’ offers family fun Rescheduled to this weekend CHESTERTOWN — For 35 years, local residents have fashioned weird craft — anything from simple cardboard creations to complex or bizarre feats of engineering — to slide down the short snowy slope of Dynamite Hill Ski area.

This year ’s event, was rescheduled by its sponsor, the North Warren
Chamber of Commerce, to Saturday March 6, at the ski area on Rte. 8 in Chestertown. The sport of broomball, with its enthusiastic practitioners, will also capture spectators’ attention. Broomball registration will be at 9 a.m., with a start time on the ice at 9:30 a.m. Derby registration is at 11 a.m. and the downhill race begins at noon. Activities are open to the public. Chili and hot dogs will be available inside Dynamite Hill’s warming hut. For entry forms and details, call the Chamber office at 494-2722.
Education leaders criticize proposed state budget By Chris Morris firstname.lastname@example.org ALBANY — Not only has Gov. David Paterson proposed substantial cuts to public schools, but he has promoted deep financial cuts to the State University system — $90 million worth. In response, SUNY Chancellor Nancy Zimpher said recently that Paterson’s reductions carry major economic ramifications. “People will see a change in quality,” she said. “And we can’t afford that academically — To say these cuts don’t have a profound impact would be wrong.” Phillip Smith, president of United University Professions, testified before a joint legislative committee, stating that the SUNY system is already being forced to turn away thousands of qualified students. Smith said Paterson’s cuts would eliminate about a quarter of SUNY’s total operating budget. “Funding for SUNY, if this is allowed to go forward, would be 80 million dollars less than it was in 1990,” he said. “And yet we have 40,000 more students in our institution.” Paterson has acknowledged the cuts are deep – but he’s also reiterated that he will not budge. The Governor has repeatedly stated that if legislators refuse to make the tough decisions, he’ll do it for them. But Smith said the SUNY system is taking a disproportionate hit. According to his math, Paterson’s proposed cuts slash about $500 million from SUNY operations over the next two years. “This would be a 25 percent cut to the budgets of all agencies combined,” Smith said. “It just begs the question: why is public higher education being targeted in this manner?” Carol Brown, president of North Country Community College said that Paterson’s budget, if passed, would have a dramatic effect on the region. She said she was more optimistic than Smith, however. because of several other
proposals being discussed by the state legislature. Paterson has proposed to allow each individual SUNY school to set its own tuition and he also wants to let institutions enter into more public-private endeavors. Brown says that will also prompt colleges to become more fiscally creative. “With the proposed prison closures and the recent shuttering of Pfizer, allowing an institution like North Country to work closely with private industry is going to be important, moving forward,” she said. But Smith said allowing SUNY to set tuition on a school-by-school basis isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. He thinks it will force low-income students away from their schools of choice. “The feedback that I got was that there wasn’t a lot of support for the Governor ’s plan,” Smith said. “I think that there’s going to be some difficulty in getting this through. And for SUNY’s sake, I hope that’s the case.” Assemblywoman Janet Duprey agreed that reaction to Paterson’s SUNY tuition proposal has been mixed, but she thinks if the legislation is detailed correctly, it could work. “Many of the administrators are enthused about it,” she said. “There are some courses that are more expensive to operate and they could flex what they do and how many courses are offered and be able to increase their revenue accordingly so that those who are taking the less expensive courses are paying less.” Duprey acknowledged the concern that Paterson’s proposal will shut out some students from some schools; but she said nothing is set in stone yet. “We have to start thinking outside of the box,” Duprey said. “I think this is going to be a good discussion — If it hurts out colleges, we don’t want to do it; but funding is being cut so we’re all being forced to look at alternative ways to fund what we do.” Duprey will sit down with educators and lawmakers next week to discuss the details of Paterson’s cuts and the initiatives he’s offered to offset them.

CALENDAR • ADIRONDACK JOURNAL - Page 15
New credit card regulations limit costly surprises WASHINGTON D.C. — The new federal regulations restricting practices of credit card issuers became effective last week, and the result is the reduction of unexpected, punitive surcharges and accelerated payment deadlines. The Better Business Bureau released a summary this week of those changes, so credit card users can have the tools to better manage their accounts and save their hard-earned money, according to a representative of the organization. The Better Business Bureau urges cardholders to check their interest rate on unpaid balances for an increase, and look for any reduction in their credit limit, or a notice that their “no annual fee” card now carries an annual charge. Following are just a few of the new credit card regulations and consumer protections of the federal Credit Card Act: • Card issuers must give 45 days advance notice before changing cardholder ’s interest rates. Also, promotional rates must apply for at least six months and, unless disclosed up front, cardholders cannot have their rate increased during the first year they hold the card. • Cardholder Opt-Out: If there are changes made to the terms of the account, cardholders can choose to reject those changes, close their available credit line and have five years to pay off the balance under the original agreed terms. • Card issuers are no longer allowed to issue a credit card to anyone under 21 unless they can prove they have the means to repay the debt or if an adult over 21 co-signs on the account. Credit card companies can no longer offer free gifts as enticements on campuses. • Monthly statements must now be sent out at least 21 days prior to the due date. Also, card issuers can no longer set a payment deadline before 5 p.m. and cannot charge card holders if they pay online, over the phone or by mail. The no-fee phone rule does not apply to phone payments made the day before, day of, or anytime after the regular due date. • If the card holder has more than one interest rate for different services or accounts with the same lender, any payments over the minimum due must be applied to the account that is incurring the highest interest rate. • Over the Limit Opt-In: Card holders can no longer assume that charges made over their credit limit will be approved. Card holders must now activate the ability to exceed their credit limit, and subsequently may be charged an overlimit fee by the issuer. • Card issuers must disclose in bill statements how long it will take cardholders to pay off their bill if they only pay the minimum monthly payment, as well as how much the card holder would need to pay every month to pay off the balance in 36 months. • When calculating finance charges, card issuers can no longer employ two-cycle billing — a method that causes cardholders to pay interest on previously paid balances. While the new law is loaded with benefits for consumers, the BBB warns that the new legislation is limited. Credit card card issuers can still raise interest rates on future card purchases and there is no limit on how high those rates can go. Those who bills on time and in full each month will likely experience a reduction in benefits, the imposition of annual fees, and their credit lines cut. Business and corporate credit cards are not covered. Many card issuers will likely seek to make up some revenue lost by creating new fees for these cardholders. To learn more about the new consumer protections, Creditcards.com has details on the new federal Credit Card Act. For information on managing credit cards and debt, visit www.bbb.org.

Boys Varsity Basketball
Warriors’ cage season ends in Sectional quarterfinal Lake George 44, Maple Hill 63 CASTLETON — Predictions of tough battles ahead in the Section II tournament due to division realignment were proven accurate Monday night, as the talented Lake George boys basketball team was defeated Monday 63-44 by the larger Maple Hill high school in a Sectional quarterfinal. Hot-shooting Maple Hill established their presence in inside play on both ends of the court, and had strong performances from their full squad in the victory. Maple Hill’s defense frustrated the Warriors, who are accustomed to dishing out the athletic domination they endured Monday. The bright spot for the Warriors was the third quarter, when halftime defensive adjustments tilted the score in their favor, 19-15. But the 35-16 lead Maple Hill had already built up was too much In last Saturday’s Section VII Class D tournament playoff, Bolton’s Mitchell Jordan attempts to take for the Warriors to overcome. the ball away from Crown Point Center John Budwick as he drives downcourt.

In the Eagles’ effort, Sophomore Mitchell Jordan tallied six points, Senior Matt Peterson contributed five, Junior Matthew Smith scored four, Junior Tyler Calzada chipped in three, and Freshman Bill Smith added two. Pfau, Calzada and Peterson hit three-pointers. LAKE GEORGE -- The Lake George Boys basketball players bounced back from a 14-6 first-quarter deficit Feb. 24 to win a quarterfinal berth as they beat the scrappy Hoosic Valley 45-40 in the Section II tournament. The Warriors changed their defenses often, keeping Hoosic Valley off-guard in the win. The strategy, executed well by the Warrior players, contained their opponents top scorers. Lake George’s offense was balanced, with players distributing the ball well and getting shots as they needed to. Junior Alex Hladik led the Warriors with 12 points, followed by Juniors Matt McGowan and Jeff Maldonado with 10 apiece, Junior J.D. Jenkins with seven, Sophomore Aaron Chambers with five, and Junior Matt Stover with one. McGowan dominated the boards with 14 rebounds and Jenkins tallied seven. Hladik, Jenkins and Chambers each hit one three-pointer.

Warrensburg 40, Canajoharie 64 CANAJOHARIE -- The Warrensburg Boys Basketball squad’s season ended Feb. 26 with a 64-40 loss to highly ranked Canajoharie High in Sectional tournament action. Canajoharie’s Payton Stahler scored 25 points to lead the sixth-seeded Cougars in this Section II opener, and eight of his teammates scored during their balanced offensive attack. The Cougars amassed a 38-16 halftime lead, after which Warrensburg coaches made .adjustments — but the scoring gap was too wide to overcome. Senior Brendan Frye led Warrensburg with 16 points, Junior John Joseph contributed 12, Senior Dante Siletti stepped up with six points, Senior Mike Perrone tallied three, Junior Ryan Belden scored two, and Senior Jason Power hit a foul shot. The Burghers finished off their 2009-10 season with a 109 record.
Bolton 30, Crown Point 45 CROWN POINT — Bolton Boys Basketball team’s 2010 quest for a Section VII trophy ended Feb. 27 as they were defeated 45-30 by a determined Crown Point team, driven to set a record for its standout center.

LAKE GEORGE — The Lake George Girls Basketball squad showed their traditional determination and teamwork Feb. 27 as they defeated the tough and athletic Rensselaer team 64-57 in a critical Section II quarterfinal victory. Lake George had their hands full, as they were forced to defend a large swath of the court — Rensselaer, with a balanced offense, shoots well from virtually anywhere. This talent was demonstrated by their six three-pointers. But regardless of the Railroaders’ widespread attack, the Warriors were hot on offense and managed to keep the upper hand. Under pressure late in the game as Rensselaer fought back from a deficit to tie the score at 54, the Warriors dug deep and pulled ahead for good, Lake George Athletic Director Cathy Stanilka said. “It was a great game, reflecting total team effort,” she said. “We’re extremely proud of both of our basketball teams — they represent our school well.” The Warriors’ balanced offensive power and teamwork was demonstrated by the fact that four players tallied double figures. Junior Kelly Flaherty led with 17 points, followed by classmate Caroline Murphy with 15 points and 12 rebounds, and Senior Sara Anderson with 13 points and 16 rebounds. Sophomore Chelsea Sipowicz scored 11 points. Junior Brittany Baker tallied six points and Sophomore Amanda Chambers added two. Flaherty hit three three-pointers, and Baker and Sipowicz scored one apiece. The Rams were led by Venus Vasquez with 19 points and 16 rebounds. With the win, Lake George advanced to play Berne-Knox Wednesday at Scotia.
By Thom Randall email@example.com QUEENSBURY — The Lake George Girls Basketball team was edged out in an epic battle Feb. 17 against Whitehall for the Adirondack League Championship. The undefeated Railroaders forced Lake George into an uncharacteristic position as runners-up in the league. For six straight years, the Lake George girls have claimed the crown as their own. The Warriors 43-47 loss wasn’t due to a lack of talent, however, as the Warrior squad had plenty. Whitehall, however, fought as they have all year, with steely defense and a precise, effective offense that has established a 180 undefeated regular season. The Railroaders secured their victory in the game’s final minutes by shoring up their defense, which had been effectively challenged for more than two quarters by the Warriors, following the Railroader ’s early scoring burst that launched the game. After trailing by a substantial 6-15 margin at the end of the first quarter, Lake George closed the scoring gap to a mere three points in the fourth quarter. But in the final minutes of the game, the Railroaders concentrated on grabbing the rebounds and keeping control of the ball, leading to the win. Brittany St. Clair of Whitehall led all players with 21 points and 19 rebounds. For the Lake George Warriors, Brittany Baker was tops with 12 points, followed by Kelly Flaherty with 11, Caroline Murphy with nine, and Sara Anderson contributing seven and Chelsea Sipowicz with four.
