firstname.lastname@example.org PLATTSBURGH — Emotions flooded Teresa Sayward as she watched her son Glenn marry his longtime partner Ben. As the veteran Assemblywoman announces her retirement, she said her most significant moment as a lawmaker was supporting gay marriage in New York state. The move drew criticism, especially from some of her Republican colleagues, but she said it was the right thing to do and changed many lives.

Lake commissioners move on inspections By Thom Randall email@example.com BOLTON LANDING — The pending plan to inspect boats for invasive species and decontaminate them if nec-
essary moved ahead this week, as Lake George Park Commission members unveiled how they’d likely certify and seal clean boats — and discussed their efforts to line up funding and boost public education. At a meeting in Bolton Landing
March 2, members of the Park Commission’s Invasive Species Committee showed representatives of environmental groups a wire and plastic seal that would bind a boat to a trailer, certifying that it was inspected and clean of invasive species.

What’s this Three-Bar Dinner?

The meal gives diners opportunity to assemble their meal from a salad bar, a baked potato bar and an ice cream sundae bar. Servings from one bar are $5, from two bars, $8, and from three, only $10. For details, call 623-9334.
‘Soul Surfer’ movie to screen Two movies have been scheduled for screening at Warrensburg Free Methodist Church on River St.
On Saturday March 17, at 6:45 pm., the family-oriented inspirational movie “Soul Surfer” will be presented at 6:45 p.m. Refreshments are to follow. Contact Pastor Nancy for information 744-8609, or call the church at 623-3023 and leave a message. The next Movie Night at Warrensburg Free Methodist is set for April 6, Good Friday. The film, to be shown at 6:30 p.m., is "The Passion of the Christ." The movie depicts the final 12 hours of Jesus’ life, with flashbacks of Jesus as a child and as a young man with his mother, giving the Sermon on the Mount, teaching the Twelve Apostles, and at the Last Supper. The dialogue is entirely in reconstructed Aramaic and Latin with vernacular subtitles. (Editor ’s note: Directed by Mel Gibson, this 2004 film was a resounding commercial success but was also controversial, with some critics claiming that the extreme violence in the movie obscures its message.) This movie is for mature audiences only. At the same time that “Passion” is on the screen, the movie "Toy Story 3" will also be shown to accommodate younger children. Refreshments to follow. for details, call the pastor. As for other events, the church’s Easter egg hunt will be held from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 7 for children age 2 through 10 or 11.

March 10, 2012
Evelyn Wood of Thurman now a candidate for Sayward’s Assembly post firstname.lastname@example.org THURMAN — Town of Thurman Supervisor Evelyn Wood announced this week that she’s a candidate for the state Assembly post to be vacated this December by Teresa Sayward (R-Willsboro). Wood joins several other area politicians that have expressed interest in running to represent the 113th Assembly District. Wood, 34, was elected Thurman Supervisor in Nov. 2010 and took office immediately — because her predecessor resigned midterm. The following November, she was unopposed in her re-election to the two-year post. Wood said Sunday she was approached several months ago by people outside Warren County asking her if she’d run, and she was reached again Friday by these citizens about launching a candidacy. She then contacted Warren County Republican Chairman Mike Grasso about running, and said she’d be interested in an interview with county G.O.P. Committee members. She has since sent a letter to the committee, formally asking the committee for their endorsement. As Wood said that since most of Sayward’s 113th Assembly district is within the Adirondacks, her candidacy was a good fit. Wood said that if elected, she’d be an effective legislator. Since she has lived in Thurman since birth, she was fully aware of the issues that Adirondackers face, she said. “As a lifelong resident of the Adirondacks, I’m well aware of the major issues facing our constituents,” she said, noting that she serves on the board of directors of the Adirondack Association of Towns and Villages. Wood said that Internet access, jobs, economic development and bolstering forest-related employment were the top issues that she’d be lobbying for. She said that in dealing with the issues of her first two years, she gained valuable experience that she’d put to use if elected to the Assembly. She said her experience in managing her town government’s response to the devastating storms of 2011 was at the top of that list.
Last Memorial Day weekend’s flash floods resulted in an estimated $7 million of damage in road and bridge washouts — representing about 10 times the town’s entire annual budget. Regional officials praised Wood’s response to the widespread devastation. She said that this experience working with FEMA officials would be particularly useful, as many towns in the Adirondacks had experienced destruction in 2011 storms. “I’ve worked well with Albany and Washington, and I’ve developed a really good contact list — people I can get a hold of to get things done that need to be accomplished,” she said. She said that her experience as Chairman of the Warren County Planning and Community Development Committee offered her experience that would be useful in working to boost the economy in the Adirondacks. She said that expanding Internet broadband access in the park was a key factor in spurring economic development. For the past several months, Wood has been working to establish a public-private partnership to broadcast broadband signals throughout Thurman via the new“white space” technology. She’s already spent many hours in negotiations with optic cable providers, grant sources and technology gurus to accomplish the goal of getting all Thurman households connected. She said that providing Internet access was a vital issue for most all of the rural towns in the 113th district. “To retain the younger families in the Adirondacks, attract more residents and develop jobs, it’s very important to have Internet access,” she said. Meeting the needs of farmers and pursuing the interests of the logging industry are also key objectives of hers, if she’s elected. “I want to help farms not only stay viable, but grow,” she said. “And we’ve been losing logging jobs due to state land purchases and other factors, and I want to turn this situation around.” At home, she and her husband Andrew Hall and her parents nurture a fair-sized plot vegetables, a small number of farm animals as well as two children — Catherine, 7, and Mable, 2. Although when campaigning in 2010,
some political observers were wary of her youth and lack of experience, soon after she was elected, she proved her ability to wield clout — whether it was slashing a town budget, negotiating a contract with the local ambulance squad, or responding to the devastating flash floods. Wood has achieved a reputation of getting things done, applying her strong will to overcome distractions and squelch opposition. She’s used her gavel at town meetings freely, preventing issues from getting sidetracked.
She said her goal-oriented attitude would be put to good use in Albany, if she were elected. She said she’d present a strong voice for local government, including small rural towns. “Local government is struggling, and we need Albany to help us out,” she said. “I’ve got the proven ability to look at both sides of an issue and work with others to find a middle path and make it work,” she said. “This is more important than ever.”
Boat inspections from page 1 Boats coming out of Lake George could receive such a seal, and if left unbroken, boats could be reintroduced to the lake without re-inspection. Committee members said the idea, based on procedures employed at Lake Tahoe, would minimize inconvenience to boaters in the pending boat inspection and decontamination program. It also would allow marinas to pull boats out of Lake George and store them at shoreline sites or a considerable distance without re-inspection and certification. Representatives of the Park Commission have been meeting with state Department of Environmental Commission officials to lobby for establishing a trial boat inspection and vessel disinfection program within several months at Norowal Marina. Last week, members of the Invasives Committee met with DEC Region 5 Director Robert Stegemann. DEC officials have expressed concerns about the impact on anglers, Commission members said March 2. While the trial program features voluntary compliance, a proposed law would eventually require all boats, before they are launched on Lake George, to be thoroughly inspected — and if deemed necessary — sent to a vessel-washing station to be decontaminated. The Park Commission has asked state officials for $300,000 to implement the plan. Already, Gov. Cuomo’s proposed state budget has earmarked $100,000 for controlling invasive species in Lake George. Invasive Committee members said that individuals’ kayaks and canoes wouldn’t likely be included in the inspection program, because a voluntary Lake Steward inspection program conducted last summer by the Lake George Association indicated that kayaks and canoes weren’t carrying invasives. They said they’d be tweaking the law to make it as convenient as possible for anglers, lakeshore homeowners. “We’ll be relying on a person’s decency

to make sure their boats are clean,” Committee member John Pettica said. Lake George Association Executive Director Walt Lender said the Park Commission was making worthwhile progress. “This is a very good direction to be going in,’ he said. “It’s good to be exploring ways to get control over boats’ points of entry into the lake.” The trial program would establish a voluntary inspection site at Norowal Marina in Bolton Landing, and boats found carrying invasive species would be decontaminated at a nearby washing station. Invasive committee member Joe Stanek said that Norowal was a good site, because over the Fourth of July weekend last year, 325 boats were inspected in the voluntary Lake Steward program. Among those, 25 boats were determined likely to carry invasive species. He said that in the trial program, boaters would not be charged a fee, although a $30 fee has been estimated for the proposed mandatory program. “This is a common-sense approach,” he said. “If a person’s boat is clean, drained and dry, they’ll be able to launch.” Invasives committee members said Friday they are in the process of selecting a boat-washing station, and it’s is likely to cost $41,0000 or so. Eventually, a halfdozen inspection and decontamination stations could be set up around the lake adjacent to launch sites, if the plan is fully implemented after the trial program concludes. Invasives Committee member Joe Stanek said the inspection and decontamination program was vital to not only protecting the lake’s purity, but avoiding costs of dealing with invasive species contamination. Stanek said that officials overseeing Lake Tahoe, which is similar to Lake George, estimate that economic losses to Tahoe-area citizens were estimated to far exceed $20 million annually if invasives were left unchecked. That figure includes decreases in property values, recreational use, losses in tourism, impact on water supply and increased boat maintenance, he said.

County leader ready to take on Assembly seat
Teresa Sayward from page 1
By Thom Randall
email@example.com QUEENSBURY — One of the most prominent local politicians in the area has all but declared he’s a candidate for the state Assembly seat to be vacated Dec. 31 by Teresa Sayward. Warren County Board of Supervisors Chairman Dan Stec of Queensbury said he’s giving serious consideration to running for the post representing citizens of the 113th Assembly District, which at this point includes Essex County, Warren County and portions of Hamilton County. “I’m definitely interested, and I know I’m qualified,” he said in an interview Tuesday March 6, five days after Sayward announced she would retire and pursue a new course in her life. Stec joins several other area politicians that have expressed interest in the post: town of Thurman Supervisor Evelyn Wood, Essex County Board of Supervisors Chairman Randy Douglas, former Glens Falls Mayor Bob Regan and Moriah Supervisor Thomas Scozzafava. Some politicians have traditionally advocated for geographical balance between Essex and Warren counties in state legislative representation — and state Sen. Betty Little is from Queensbury. This potential doubled-up representation from the suburban town of Queensbury — and taking the seat away from rural Essex County — doesn’t faze Stec. “We owe it to our taxpayers and constituents to find the best candidate possible to represent the region, regardless of where the person comes from,” he said March 6. Stec said that his approach to governance — fiscal conservatism while providing vital social services — would be embraced throughout the district. He said that as chairman of the Warren County Finance Committee, he helped craft two budgets that reflected the two lowest tax levy increases in 20 years, despite escalating health, retirement, fuel and personnel costs. The budgetcrafting was accomplished while building back the county’s financial reserves, which were seriously depleted — and not using fund balances to make the figures look good, he said. “ We’re committed to making sure we are providing services the public wants, while getting the most value for the taxpayers’ money,” he said. His fiscal conservatism has a deeper history, he said. For nine years during his tenure as town of Queensbury supervisor, the municipality had no local property tax. Also, his administration returned $10 million in surplus back to the property owners, he said. When first taking office as town supervisor in 2004, he was the youngest supervisor to be in charge of Queensbury since H.Russell Harris, who was in power from 1946 through 1958. Stec served as town councilman for four years prior to his tenure as supervisor. It was in 2002, as town board member, that he first sought the Assembly seat when Betty Little left the post open and ran for the state Senate. At the time, seasoned politicians advised him to gain some experience, Stec said, adding that he deferred to Sayward in her successful candidacy.
Dan Stec Now, with some silver hair in his sideburns, he’s achieved the political experience that was slim a decade ago. Now, he’s one of the longest-tenured supervisors of his town in recent history, he said. “I'm about as experienced as you can get,” he said with a chuckle. Among his accomplishments, he said, was his oversight of the $15.3-million project reconstructing the Northway Exit 18 corridor which provides a drastically improved gateway to Glens Falls, he said. The complex project, which involved various agencies at all levels of government, took 10 years to accomplish. Stec also said he was ready for the media scrutiny that accompanies an Assembly seat, noting that for 10 years, Queensbury town board meetings have been televised locally on TV8. “People want to be comfortable with their candidate, and the public has seen me perform on my job,” he said. “Because of this television exposure, I’m amazed at how many people know me.” Regardless of where the regional Assembly candidate hails from, he or she must be well-versed in Adirondack issues, political observers have said. Stec said Tuesday he possesses such credentials. He observed that he’s now into his second term leading Warren County, which has 94 percent of its land mass inside the Adirondack Park boundaries. Also, he’s been regularly attending meetings of the Intercounty Legislative Committee of the Adirondacks, a group he chaired for a year. The panel debates various initiatives and issues that concern all the 102 towns and villages in the Adirondacks. Also, Queensbury — although its considered suburban — has half its land mass within the Park’s “blue line,” Stec said. In addition, he took on and accomplished a personal challenge to climb all the high peaks in the Adirondacks, not only as a way of keeping fit, but to fully appreciate the region’s character, he said. “Last year, my pastime has been hiking in Essex County, and now that I’m a ‘46er,’ I’m very familiar with the rugged beauty of the county as well as familiarizing myself with the challenges it faces because of its ‘rural-ness,’” he said.

“This has been truly the best experience I have ever had in my life,” Sayward said in Plattsburgh at the Legislative Breakfast Friday, March 2, a day after announcing her retirement. “It hasn’t always been easy, but it has been rewarding. “We have done so many things, but the most significant thing I ever did was to become the first Republican to sign for the same-sex marriage bill.” Sayward, 67, served a decade as Willsboro Town Supervisor before being elected to the 113th Assembly District in 2002. The district covers Hamilton and Warren counties, most of Essex County and part of Saratoga County. She spoke with family recently, including her husband Kenneth, with whom she celebrated a 50th wedding anniversary, and decided it was the right time for her to retire. She will step down at the end of the year. “Teresa, you are leaving us wanting more,” said North Country Chamber of Commerce President Garry Douglas. Assemblywoman Janet Duprey, R-Peru, of the 114th Assembly District, called it a bittersweet day and a huge loss for the North Country. She said she and Sayward have been friends since they were teenagers. Duprey also supported the same-sex marriage bill. “She is one of the most respected members of the Assembly by both parties that sit in those chambers,” Duprey said. State Sen. Betty Little, R-Queensbury, said she began admiring Sayward’s career when the latter was a supervisor in Willsboro. “She is a tremendous representative of the issues of this constituency,” Little said. “I think she is going to be a tremendous advocate for the North Country in a different way.” Sayward is not going away. The Adirondack Park still needs a strong voice, she said. “If we don’t come together for a single purpose, we won’t be successful in anything we do,” Sayward said. “There is a lot of power when people come together.” Sayward has been extremely pleased with Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration. The most important thing, she said, is to work in a non-partisan way to push New York forward. “I knew when I took this job I would know when it was time to leave,” Sayward said. “Thank you all very much for making this ride I had a very pleasant and wonderful experience.”

Let the Year of the Girl begin
March 10, 2012
irl Scouts around the world are celebrating the official centennial of their organization Monday, March 12 in what is being touted as the “Year of the Girl.” It was 100 years ago when Juliett Gordon Low founded the first Girl Scout troop in Savannah, Ga. Since then, more than 50 million American girls have developed leadership potential in their troops. Once a Girl Scout, always a Girl Scout. The organization has created a family of friends — a sisterhood — that transcends time. And if you’re a Girl Scout, you’re in good company. Here are some famous Americans in the Girl Scout family: •musicians Taylor Swift, Sheryl Crow and Mariah Carey; •actresses Dakota Fanning, Lucille Ball (“I Love Lucy”), Lynda Carter (“Wonder Woman”) Susan Lucci (“All My Children”) and Mary Tyler Moore; •television personality Martha Stewart; •television anchorwoman Barbara Walters; •syndicated newspaper columnist Ann Landers; •tennis star Venus Williams; •professional race car driver Danica Patrick; •figure skating Olympic gold medalists Peggy Fleming and Dorothy Hamill; •Sandra Day O'Connor, the first female member of the U.S. Supreme Court; •and former first ladies Laura Bush, Nancy Reagan and Hillary Clinton, who is currently the U.S. Secretary of State. Clinton’s daughter, Chelsea, was also a Girl Scout. Girl Scouts, you are the future leaders of our country in all corners of society, including government, business, education, health, science, sports, media and the arts. Those who are not familiar with Girl Scouts simply know them for their cookies. But Girl Scouts know better. It’s about camaraderie, teamwork, leadership, strength of mind, body and spirit ... and fun. Former Girl Scouts at Denton Publications were eager to share some fond memories of their scouting days, from the 1960s through the 1980s. They remember community service projects, field trips, camping, canoeing and hiking. They learned a lot, and they highly recommend the Girl Scouts to any girl. Joining the Girl Scouts is a great way to get away from the house — with 21st century distractions like television, video
games, computers and cell phone texting — and into new environments with a wide variety of experiences. It shows girls that there’s more to life than simply going to school and going home. There’s a world out there to explore, and the Girl Scouts can show you the way. For those not familiar with Girl Scouts, here is a quick primer. Like in Boy Scouts, there are different groups based on age: •Girl Scout Daisy, grades K-1 •Girl Scout Brownie, grades 2-3 •Girl Scout Junior, grades 4-5 •Girl Scout Cadette, grades 6-8 •Girl Scout Senior, grades 9-10 •Girl Scout Ambassador, grades 11-12 The mission is to “build girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.” The motto is “Be prepared.” The slogan, which has been used for 100 years, is “Do a good turn daily.” Girl Scout Promise: On my honor, I will try: To serve God* and my country, To help people at all times, And to live by the Girl Scout Law. And don’t forget that adults can join as leaders and co-leaders. While there are currently 2.3 million American girls in Girl Scouts, there are more than 880,000 adults in leadership roles. The 100th anniversary celebrations are now starting, and there is a variety of activities planned. For example, many local troops are taking part in a nationwide Girl Scouts’ 100th Anniversary Take Action Project called Girl Scouts Forever Green, which is designed to reduce the number of discarded single-use plastic bottles and bags. There are parties, camps and fun runs. The local council — Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York — serves more than 12,000 girls in 15 counties. For more information, visit online at gsneny.org. It’s worth visiting the website, if only to take advantage of the Cookie Locator to find a Girl Scout cookie booth near you.

•100 Years Ago - April 1912• Teacher denounces racy music At a recent school conference, Miss Eleanor Smith aimed a blow at the music sung at our Sunday School. She made an onslaught on such pieces in vogue as “Bringing in the Sheaves,” “Will there be any Stars in my Crown?,” “I want to be an Angel,” “Hold the Fort” and many other favorites in Sunday School singing which she firmly denounces as “ragtime music.”
Gallup found dead in the snow Orville Gallup, 68, a Thurman farmer and veteran of the Civil War, was found dead th morning of March 22, 1912 by the roadside near his home between Thurman Station and Athol by George W. Lucia of Warrensburgh who was driving on his way to Athol. The body was lying in a ditch partly covered by snow and Mr. Lucia at first thought it was an overcoat which had been lost by some traveler. Stopping to investigate, however, he was horrified to find the coat covered the lifeless body of a man. Lucia informed Supervisor Charles H. Baker of his horrible find and Mr. Baker identified the body as that of Orville Gallup. The remains were left where they were until Coroner C.A. Prescott arrived to view them. His opinion was that there was nothing to indicate foul play and death was due to heart failure and exposure. Orville Gallup, who lived with his son, Delbert Gallup, had been missing from his home two days earlier, which was common as he often stayed away for days at a time. In the company of Truman H. Smith, father and son has stopped at Shannahan’s Saloon at Cat’s Corners and had remained there for quite some time. Smith said that when he had left them they were both intoxicated and were engaged in a quarrel which resulted in the old man leaving the house and he could later not be located even after one of his rubbers was found in the road. A search was begun but was abandoned because of darkness and a heavy fall of snow. The old man was well thought of in Thurman and his sad death has caused much sorrow. Besides his son he is survived by one daughter, Mrs. Charles Combs of Athol. The bearers were Watson Everts, Truman H. Smith, Thomas S. Coyle and Clarence

Brown. Burial was made in the Baker Cemetery, Thurman. (Note: ”Cat’s Corners” was on the corner of the Thurman Road and Hickory Hill Road near the east end of the Thurman Bridge.)
Old Toll House takes fire The building formerly used as a toll house on the Warrensburgh-Chestertown Road caught fire the morning of March 26, 1912 Situated about three miles north of Warrensburgh, it was saved by destruction only by the most strenuous efforts on the part of every able-bodied person in the neighborhood, women as well as men. the building is owned by William H. Faxon of Chestertown and now occupied by Carmi Wright. The chimney burned out and set fire to the roof and the flames made rapid progress. Amid shouts and screams, a bucket brigade was quickly formed. The water supply was insufficient and pails were filled with snow which were dumped where they would do the most good. All the household furniture was removed from the building and in the excitement many breakable items were damaged by rough handling while feather beds, pillows and other things were carefully carried to a place of safety. Men with axes chopped holes in the roof in order to get at the heart of the fire and some of the partitions were chopped open. It was a long and hard struggle but determined firefighters won and saved the building which was damaged to the extent of $400 which was covered by insurance. There was no insurance of Mr. Wright’s furniture but most of the broken articles can be repaired. He says he is grateful to his neighbors for their assistance. (Note: This property would be today on the south corner of state Rte. 9 and Rte. 28.)
War souvenir found Peter Bridge of Essex is proudly exhibiting a piece of lead which he carried in the back part of his head for nearly half a century. He was a veteran of the Civil War and during one of the battles he was wounded in the head. The injury never properly healed and in the intervening years it frequently occasioned him much trouble and pain. Recently there came from the wound a portion of a bullet which he has kept as a souvenir
of his part in the great rebellion.
Local girl graduates in Troy Miss Alice M. Hadden, daughter of Fred O. Hadden of Warrensburgh, graduated March 19, 1912 at the head of her class at the commencement exercises of the training school for nurses of the Samaritan Hospital in Troy. She received the first scholarship prize of $50 in gold and was the second Warrensburgh girl to win this prize having also been won a few years earlier by Cordelia Combs. Frederick Hadden and his wife, Harriet Jane Prosser Hadden attended the graduating exercises. Miss Hadden will practice her profession in Troy. (Note: My late mother-in-law, Ida Robinson Hadden once told me that Alice Hadden cared tenderly for her ailing father, Fred Hadden until he died two years later in 1914. The Hadden homestead was the second house up the hill on the left on Ridge St., once known as Hadden Hill, which was later the home of postal worker Francis Thayer. Alice died, unmarried, in 1925 when she was only 41 years old and her mother followed five years later. They are all buried in the back of the old east side of the Warrensburgh Cemetery.)
Shack to be built for workers Contractor Joseph M. Walker is having a big shack built on the Chester Road to house the gang of Italians to be employed on his state road contract this season. Frank Burgess, Mr. Walker ’s superintendent, is in charge of the work. The men will arrive soon and work will start April 10, 1912. Rucco Fava, who is to take the place of Tony, the efficient gang boss of last season has recently been in Warrensburgh to look things over.
Torn down and chopped up The Burhans barns and the surrounding fence on the Burhans estate are being town down and the site will be occupied by a modern garage. G.E. Farrar is in charge of the work. (Note: The Burhans estate was on Pine Tree Lane, directly up the hill behind the present day Warrensburg Town Hall. Historian Sarah Farrar says that these barns mentioned were on Elm St., across the roadway from the firehouse which was built on land once owned by Charles Burhans.) In other news, Jay Pasco of South Johns-
burgh, with the aid of William Cameron of Athol, recently cut on Cyrus D. Baker ’s place in Thurman a giant maple tree which made 13 markets of logs. It was hauled to the landing at The Glen by Baker ’s team. On Orlando Beede’s job at Keene Valley, a load of pulp wood containing 13 cords was drawn seven miles by one team. This is reported to hold the record for this area.
News roundabout This March has been one of the worst we have seen in a number of years. Records show that this has been the coldest winter since 1854. Most everyone has a cold now and are wishing for warm weather. Levi Morehouse of Sodom is feeling feeble but he thinks he will feel better when warm weather arrives. A great many people are hopefully getting ready for sugar making. If all is true about the old groundhog we had better light a lantern another year so he can see his shadow or we might feel we are living in the North Pole. Albert Turner of Starbuckville recently shot one of the largest otters that has ever been killed in this area. It weighed 44 pounds and measured 41 inches. (Note: The road going north up the river from the Starbuckville Dam on the west side of the river is called “Turner Road.”) Edwin Glazier, 72, an old and highly respected citizen of Horicon died at his home, Feb. 14, 1912, near the village after an illness of only a few days of pneumonia. His wife proceeded him to the better land by a year. William F. Benham, for many years a noted Adirondack guide, died at Saranac Lake. Readers are welcome to contact Adirondack Journal correspondent Jean Hadden at firstname.lastname@example.org or 623-2210.
Clarification and corrections: Editing of the March 3 edition of this column resulted in a factual error. Allison Mark Langworthy’s granddaughter is indeed Allison Apple, but he is also the father of Linda Apple, who still lives in town on Hudson St. with her husband Thomas Apple and several of their children. Also: the mention of controversy linked to a politician holding both a town office and a school district office simultaneously referred to Bernard A. Clinton in March 1912, who was removed from office because of the dual roles. No public controversy has erupted that we know of concerning Linda Marcella Baker ’s present roles on both the town board and the Warrensburg school board.
Letters to the Editor Dumping on others’ property is offensive To the Adirondack Journal: There was a truckload of mattresses and furniture dumped in the middle of the night — then set on fire — on the property of an elderly woman on Buyce Road. This is not being a good neighbor — and it is dangerous. The owner of this property does not deserve this — she has been gracious to different sport groups. You will be found out. You are being watched! Come and clean up your mess, including all the beer bottles. And if you have a problem with your garbage, contact the Thurman Town Board or leave it on their lawn. Joan Harris Thurman
Controlling invasive species is vital To the Adirondack Journal: The Lake George Park Commission has been investigating ways to prevent aquatic invasive species entering Lake George over the last few years. Several western states have instituted mandatory boat inspections in order to prevent invasive species from entering their lakes. Lake Tahoe, which is similar to Lake George, estimates the economic impact to their area would be $22.4 million per year if the invasives were left unchecked. This analysis encompasses reduction in property values, recreational use, tourism loss, water supply impact and increased boat maintenance. Last year, the management efforts to eradicate Asian clams, Eurasian Watermilfoil, Curly-Leaf Pondweed, etc. in Lake George approached $1 million. In January, the full Park Commission voted to continue holding public invasive species prevention meetings every two weeks. Attendees include the general public, municipalities, environmental groups, DEC and marina owners. The short term objective is to implement a pilot boat washing program for vessels which are not "clean, drained and dry." This pilot boat washing program will be located in one site and will clean those vessels that are not "clean drained or dry." Other launch sites will operate as they did in 2011. The pilot program will leverage the experiences from those lakes that have already implemented the inspection and vessel-washing process. We are also developing public information programs to convey the need for all lake users to be good stewards to help us all in the prevention of the spread of invasive species. Our goal is to partner with marinas and other launch sites to prevent infestation. There are plenty of lakes that are now infested that wish they instituted a boat inspection process at all their launches. In 2011, the trained boat inspectors in the Lake George Association’s lake steward program ex-
panded their coverage hours at the six launch sites; they examined 8,593 vessels and removed 87 invasive species that otherwise would have infested the lake. Lake George village and town boards, along with other towns whose properties have been directly affected, have voted to support mandatory inspections. The Park Commission will include an information flyer with the boat registrations describing the pilot inspection process to inform boat owners of any changes. It is our goal, through public education and boat inspections, to prevent infestation in Lake George. We all need to help in this goal, and I thank you for your editorial recognition of the problems we are attempting to manage.

Religion and schooling should be separate To the Adirondack Journal: I don't feel that it's right to foist anyone’s religion on others. Children should be able to get an education without their beliefs being questioned or discriminated against. They shouldn't have to endure others' beliefs being forced upon them. Public schools are just that, public. People of many differing beliefs go there. It's an equal opportunity place to receive an education. It's not a public school's place, right, or business to teach such things. However, there are certain codes of conduct and universal laws that can be taught which are a part of most religions but aren't necessarily religious in nature. Common sense should also be encouraged. There seems to be a shortage of that. Moral direction, I feel, should be taught by a child's parents or guardians, family members and religious groups, not by public schools. It's prejudiced to suggest or imply that one religious tenets are fit to be taught — and not that of another's. It’s also wrong to single-out, demonize and degrade a religion such as the allegations circulating over Harry Potter. That's discrimination and bigotry. Such accusations imply a "mine is better than yours" attitude which is quite destructive, especially given humankind’s history. As for the Harry Potter controversy, that’s a potential slippery slope. A giant Pandora's Box. What's next? Alice In Wonderland because some people might foolishly think that, upon reading it, kids might get the sudden urge to cut people's heads off due to what is said by the Queen of Hearts? How about Willy Wonka? Will he be accused of promoting gluttony because he is a successful candy maker? Will there be calls for the candy to be banned in stores?
Children should be encouraged to read, not discouraged by having the very books that got them interested in reading in the first place snatched away from them due to discrimination, bigotry and hypocrisy. Lauralee S. Allen Warrensburg
Maxam: Based on my accomplishments, Chester board should reinstate me To the Adirondack Journal: After repeatedly lauding my job performance, the Chester Town Board terminated me recently as town Animal Control Officer. In the three months I was ACO, I brought in 62 new dog licenses and 15 delinquents were reinstated, a 15 percent increase in licensing, generating over $500 in new revenues which reimbursed the taxpayers for one-third of my salary. During this period, the town constructed an animal shelter which gained commendation from the state. We started with a concrete pad in an overgrown area and crafted it into a one-story, insulated building. I obtained professional kennels through Craigslist, buying an eight-kennel setup for $500, kennels which cost at least $2,500 new. Assisted by the state Department of Agriculture and Markets, I fully equipped the shelter and ACO to meet state standards. I completed training in animal law, rabies and dog bites, received certification in micro-chipping and parasite counseling and was enrolled in a certificate course in nuisance wildlife control. I wrote and published articles on dog licensing, leash law, rabies and dog bites, dangerous dogs and breed control. I wrote and designed a pamphlet on pet owners’ responsibilities. I registered the shelter in Purina Pets for People campaign to receive free food and in Purina’s disaster aid program. I applied to Purina’s Pets for Seniors Program so seniors could adopt companion animals with Purina reimbursing adoption costs. I answered numerous calls, was available 24-7, rescued cats and dogs alike and took steps pursuant to the law to protect innocent animals. For all of this, I was paid about $1,500. Unfortunately, the Chester Town Board failed to allow me to perform the duties I was empowered to do. I am the most qualified resident for ACO. I should be reinstated to the position and allowed to perform the duties as authorized by law. June Maxam Chestertown

Bands ‘N Beans rocks Roaring Brook Ranch By Thom Randall
Winners of the Bands 'N Beans chili contest pose for a photo Sunday, March 4 at Roaring Brook Ranch in Lake George. The annual event attracted more than 1,000 people to hear eight bands on two stages as well as sample 35 different varieties of chili offered by area restaurants. Photo by Thom Randall
River to Northville in Fulton County. Winning third in the popular vote was Vic’s Tavern of Northville. The President’s Award went to Upriver Cafe of Lake Luzerne, and the Hot Stuff award went to Marketplace Steakhouse of Bolton Landing. Garry said the “reach” of the event has been expanding during its 21 years in existence. New competitors this year included Garnet Hill Lodge in North River, Holiday Inn of Lake George, Marketplace Steakhouse, Pete’s Ahh of North Creek, Pub on 9 of Bolton, and Ranchero’s Steakhouse of South Glens Falls, Garry said. “New restaurants breathe new life into the cook-off every year,” he said. But Bands & Beans would be a huge event
Their version of chili, which featured rare meats, earned first place in the votes cast by attendees. It included smoked buffalo meat, and wild boar sausage, and had a topping of shredded cheddar imported from Ireland. Down the lineup of tables,Brett Lang was dishing up two versions of chili for the two restaurants he co-owns: green chili for Pablo’s Burrito Cantina and classic red chili for Christie’s of the Lake, both of Lake George. “This is an amazing event — great bands, super people,” he said. “There’s not another event in the North Country like this.” Jeff Garry of Roaring Brook noted the event has a regional draw, and this year attracted cook-off competitors from North

LAKE GEORGE — Nursing their bottles of beer, Bryan Rounds and Mike Lawler of Warrensburg stood and watched hundreds of people crammed into a dance floor at Roaring Brook Ranch gyrate to the music of the rock band Groove Therapy. “This is an adult theme party,” Rounds quipped. “This is the biggest thing that happens around here all year long.” “It’s a mellow crowd — no fights like in the bars,” Lawler replied. “Nothing’s better than this,” Rounds continued. “Hot chili and short skirts.” About 1,000 people attended Sunday’s Bands ‘N Beans party — a fundraiser for the Lake George Arts Project that combines a chili cook-off with five hours of continuous music from eight bands on two stages. Approaching Rounds and Lawler from behind, Connie Maxam and Joanna Lent of Frederick’s Restaurant threw their arms around the two men, drawing them into a group hug. “We won! We won second place!” Maxam said of their chili concoction. “And it’s our first year!” Frederick’s chili was an unusual creation among the 35 presented at the party, as it was layered — varied flavors at different depths, Lent said. “It’s a recipe your mom would cook,” she said in a tone of modesty. Dishing out “Wazzu Fusion Chili” beside Maxam and Lent in the lineup of 35 featured restaurants were Michael Cirelli and Felipe DeJesus of Giovanna’s Restaurant of the Georgian Resort in Lake George.
with or without chili — it’s all about the socializing and music, Garry said. “It’s energetic, enthusiastic, and the incredible crowd annually gives an uplifting start to Spring,” Garry said. Near the conclusion of the party on Sunday, Arts Project Director John Strong was sitting in the musician’s lounge staring off into space, chilling out after a long day setting up audio equipment and arranging all the details. He said the event raised $20,000 to go towards his organization’s arts and music programming for 2012 in Lake George. “Years ago we’d get 50 phone calls or more right before the event. This year, the phone didn’t ring, and we thought ‘Omigod, is anyone coming?’ — And here we have 1,000 or more people packing the place. People are now sharing the news via social media and texting.” Shawna Hart, 27, of Glens Falls was one of those who texted “Let’s Go!” to her friend Theresa Zielonko of Queensbury. For years, Hart — a waitress and bartender at Lake George Holiday Inn — had covered for her co-workers on the first Sunday in March so they could attend Bands ‘N Beans. This year, she arranged the day off, Hart said. “I love this — it’s a gathering where everyone is in such a great mood,” Hart said, relaxing for a few moments, away from the shoulder-to-shoulder crowd letting loose on the dance floor. “There are so many bands, and I’m amazed at the number of people here,” Zielonko replied. “Plus I’m a big chili fan.” Hart added her thoughts. “This is like going to a big concert or something,” she said. “It’s the music and unbelievable atmosphere.”

Warren County Girl Scouts celebrate 100 years LAKE GEORGE — As the Girl Scouts celebrate 100 years in 2012 — making this the “Year of the Girl” — the local troops are still feeling the effects of the recent restructuring of the Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York. Juliett Gordon Low founded the first Girl Scout troop in Savannah, Ga. on March 12, 1912. Since then, more than 50 million American girls have developed leadership potential in their Girl Scout troops. Girl Scouts are organized by grade level: •Daisies (grades K-1) •Brownies (grades 2-3) •Juniors (grades 4-5) •Cadettes (grades 6-8) •Seniors (grades 9-10) •Ambassadors (grades 11-12) The regional council serves more than 12,000 girls in 15 counties. In the upper Warren County towns, the restructuring has centralized the troops into two service units, one for Northern Warren County (towns of Johnsburg, Minerva and Chester) and one for Central Warren County (towns of Lake George, Warrensburg, Thurman, Bolton and Lake Luzerne). So instead of having a service unit for each town, there is a service unit coordinator for each region: Sarah Williams, of North Creek, for Northern Warren County; and Erin O’Neill, of Lake George, for Central Warren County.
Girl Scouts from Troop 3426 made pies.
The Central Warren County service unit has more than 10 troops, and the town of Chester has about five troops. Adirondack Journal staff contacted both service unit coordinators in the readership area and several of the troop leaders to talk about local Girl Scouts celebrating the 100th anniversary of their organization. There are a number of ways Girl Scout troops are celebrating the 100th anniversary. Some from the regional council — Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York — are going to Jam Camp at the Washington County Fairgrounds in June. Some are taking part in the Girl Run April 29 in Troy. And others are adopting activities that promote the nationwide Girl Scouts’ 100th Anniversary Take Action Project called Girl Scouts Forever Green, which is designed to reduce the number of discarded single-use plastic bottles and bags. Troop 3449, Lake George Erin O'Neill is the leader of Troop 3449 in Lake George with seven Girl Scout Seniors, one in grade 8 and six in grade 9. Her girls have helped out with community service projects such as volunteering for the Haunted Trail at Up Yonda Farm in Bolton in the fall. They are currently working on projects for their Gold Award. “That's really consuming their time right now,” O’Neill said, adding that they are learning about community issues, talking to people and researching. As for fun, they plan to attend Jam Camp, a 100-year celebration June 1-3 at the Washington County Fairgrounds. The girls are currently designing and making T-shirts for the camp. And they just started to talk about what other 100th anniversary activities they would like to do. One idea is to send gift to soldiers overseas. “We will be celebrating, but I'm not sure what we will do yet,” O’Neill said. The girls are also fond of taking field trips to restaurants. “My girls like to eat,” O’Neill said. “It
Girl Scouts from Troop 3173 on a cruise seems like we're always eating.” Troop 3173, Lake George Marybeth Tenne and Stephanie Meglino are the co-leaders of Troop 3173 in Lake George with five Girl Scout Ambassadors, all in grade 12. All five girls have earned their Gold Awards. And last June, they took a cruise to Nassau in the Bahamas. “These kids live the Girl Scout law, and they take that to heart in their everyday lives,” Tenne said. Troop 3173 will be attending Jam Camp in June. To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouts, members will be participating in a number of activities around town, including fashions shows and parties. They are planning a trip to New York City, where they want to see some Broadway plays and shop. Although her Girl Scouts will be graduating this year, Tenne said she will probably be active in Girl Scouts in the future. This is her 12th year with these seniors, who started Girl Scouts in first grade. At one point, there were 26 of them. This is a year of transition for the girls, as
they are wrapping up their high school careers by applying for college, waiting for acceptance letters, and making plans for their future beyond high school. They are busy with many extracurricular activities. “It's hard to fit Girl Scouts in their lives,” Tenne said. The teens are busy with Girl Scout activities they need to learn at their age. For example, they recently did their tax returns together. Troop 3204, Bolton Tammie DeLorenzo and Melanie Persons are the co-leaders of Troop 3204 in Bolton with 12 Girl Scout Ambassadors, all in grade 12. And eight of them have been in Girl Scouts together since they were Daisies in kindergarten. The girls have volunteered at the Haunted Trail at Up Yonda Farm; helped clean the American Legion post; and took part in the Veterans Day flag retirement ceremony. Every year, the troops in Bolton put out American flags on veterans' graves in the local cemetery for Memorial Day.

COOKIE SALE MARCH 10 WARRENSBURG — Troop 3426 is having a Girl Scout cookie booth sale at the Warrensburg Stewart's from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, March 10. Troop members will be attending Jam Camp to help celebrate the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouts, and they are planning a senior trip to Lake Placid. “They are really focused on trying to get a senior trip planned before they go on their separate ways,” DeLorenzo said. After this year, DeLorenzo said she will still be active in Girl Scouts since she and her co-leader both have sixth-grade daughters in Girl Scouts. The other Girl Scout troops in Bolton include: Troop 3131, with eight Girl Scout Cadettes, led by Deanna Roessler and Karyn Connery; and Troop 3448, with five Girl Scout Brownies, led by Amanda Brilyea. Troop 3426, Warrensburg Patty Miller, Linda Morgan, Erika Santisteban are the co-leaders of Troop 3426 in Warrensburg with nine Girl Scout Cadettes. The girls have raised money at the Christmas in Warrensburg by selling homemade ornaments and homemade candies. They also donated a portion to the Pumpkin Fund,

They have visited Countryside Adult Home and played games, painted nails, and read books with the residents. And they have participated in Food Drives and Apple Bakes. The scouts are planning on camping in a cabin in Lake Luzerne in March and celebrating Girl Scout Thinking Day by learning about many countries through crafts, games and foods. They may be visiting the Bronx Zoo this spring, and they will celebrate the Girl Scouts 100th birthday at Jam Camp. Troop 3146, Warrensburg Ann Chapman, Debbie Hensler are the coleaders of Troop 3146 in Warrensburg with three Girl Scout Ambassadors, all in grade 12. Three girls had three winning entries at 2011 North Country Festival of Trees, crafted angels for the Warrensburg Town Christmas Tree, donated a basket for a fundraiser for a sick boy, completed badge work for College 101 & On My Own Interest Projects, and they began family tree/genealogy books. They plan to bridge to Adult Girl Scouts, attend the 2012 Jam Camp, renew their First Aid/CPR certification, and travel to New York City to attend a Broadway show. Troop 3207, Warrensburg Jonelle Bacon is the leader of Troop 3207 in Warrensburg with 17 Girl Scout Daisies. The girls are currently earning their petals, and they helped make over 250 valentines for area veterans and are making decorations for bulletin boards for the Glens Falls Hospital. They’re hoping to use their cookie profits to take a trip to the Bronx Zoo. Troop 3730, Warrensburg Sheri Norton and Terry Barrett are the co-

They recently learned snowshoeing at Pack Forest and volunteered at and raised funds for Purrs and Paws Cat Shelter in Lake George. The girls are deciding on Bronze Award projects and will be attending Jam Camp in June.

There are 78 scouts in the service unit. She said that many troops in the area, including her own in North Creek, will be celebrating the 100th anniversary of Girls Scouts in a variety of ways. In the town of Chester, Williams said there are several troops: Troop 3132, Girl Scout Juniors, led by Brenda Lewis, Virginia Brown, and

www.adirondackjournal.com On the evening of Friday Feb. 24, a dose of freezing rain, hail, snow and rain hit our area, making most of the roads quite slippery. Minutes later, it got windy and the precipitation turned to snow. On Saturday morning, we ended up with our first big snowstorm so far, with 5 to 6 inches. This was followed up with the storm Thursday and Friday which dumped more than a foot of snow on us. Thanks for your many phone calls on various issues in town. We love to hear your opinions. The question has been raised whether this column gets printed exactly as I've written it, and the answer is that despite my protests, the editors of the newspaper continue to change my phrases, so bear with me. For decades, I have been writing this column, and I need to get serious about finding someone to get prepared to take over when I retire. Give me a call if you'd like to inform others in the community about what's happening in town. We'd like to hear from you!
On a personal note Celebrating birthdays this week are Hans Wenker and Alexandria Werner on March 10; Calvin Varnum, Paul Siletti and Pauline Germain on March 11; Bob Venton Sr. and Killian Baker on March 13; Gregg Sadow, Georgia Kenyon and Renee Walker on March 14; Tom Sesselman on March 15; and Paula Hubert on March 16. Get well wishes go out to Jeff Grants, Don Haskell, Cliff Dureau and Earl E. Dibble. Deepest Sympathy goes out to the family of Robert Florance of Bowen Hill Road. Florance, who was active in the community for many years, died March 1. Valerie Smarro of Williamsport Ind. Has been back home for a while visiting her mother, Bert Wilde on River Road. They spent time visiting many family members and friends in the area while Val was here. Sympathy from the community goes out to the family of Betsy Whitefield who passed away Feb. 21 at her home.
Local veterinarian service mulled Town supervisor Evelyn Wood is inquiring how many Thurman residents might be interested in having a veterinarian come to their hoe and check out their animals. A veterinarian cooperative service might be provided for both the smaller animals – pigs, sheep and goats – as well as the larger ones – horses and cows. Call the Thurman Town Hall at 623-9649 and tell a town official how may animals you might like to have examined, so Wood can gauge the need for a veterinarian service.
Town is now hiring A driver is now being sought for the Meals on Wheels program, and the post involves a 10-hour week. Also, a position is still open for a janitor to clean the town hall. For either of these positions, send a letter expressing interest or call a town official at 623-9649 or stop by the town hall and obtain an application from the town Supervisor's secretary, who is now located upstairs.

Maple Days from page 1 to ThurmanInfo@aol.com. Thurman Maple Days are scheduled to repeat over the following two weekends. On Saturday, March 10, all are welcome to attend Thurman’s famous Jack Wax Maple Party, which includes a buffet of home-cooked food, topped off with maple syrup ladled onto fresh snow — the taffy-like treat that’s been cherished in the North Country for many generations. The party begins at 4 p.m. and continues until all are served. Hod Ovitt and the Warren County Ramblers will entertain with rollicking mountain music during the meal. Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for children ages 6 to 11, and free for those 5 and under. Tickets are available at the door. This event has been a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society for 53 years or more. For details or directions, call 623-9649 or 623-4050 the day of the event, or see: www.PersisGranger.com/ThurmanMapleDays.htm. Although the weather this winter has been quite warm, maple production seems like it will be very good this year, due to continued freezing at night, coupled with temperatures rising above 32 degrees daily, maple producers are reporting. Randy Galusha of Toad Hill Maple Farm said this week that the sap is flowing well and the sugar content is good. “We are all ready to go, and expecting a big turnout for Maple Days,” he said.

firstname.lastname@example.org LAKE GEORGE — This Saturday, local folks will be getting some exercise combined with a dose of environmental education — as well as some friendly competition, socializing and family-oriented fun. All ages are invited to the Winter WarmUp event set for 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. March 10 at the Lake George Recreation Center, off Transfer Road in Lake George. Last year ’s event hosted several dozen people, and was such a success that the activities have been expanded this year, according to Sarah Hoffman of the Lake George Land Conservancy, which is hosting the festivities. The family event features guided snowshoe hikes through the woodsy trails nearby. The excursions are to be led by the staff of Up Yonda Farm environmental education center, and snowshoes will be on hand. In case snow has melted, treks will be taken without snowshoes.

‘Winter Warm-Up’ fest set for Saturday the Adirondacks is set for 11 a.m.. Another DEC representative will be on site during the morning talking about invasive forest pests and control strategies. Throughout the Warm-Up, there will be nature craft-making, a treasure hunt in the woods, sledding and snowman building — if weather conditions permit. Lunch is next, served from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The meal features crock pots of hot savory soup, donated by local restaurants and volunteers. Beginning at noon, broomball will resume, with teens and adults involved in the sport. Through most of the day’s events, there will be coffee and hot chocolate available. The Warm-Up is to include a bonfire, complete with makings for s’mores — and a storyteller. Door prizes to be awarded include a bottle of wine, a case of craft-brewed ale from Adirondack Pub & Brewery, a gift certificate to fish307.com sport shop, plus Lake George Land Conservancy giveaways. The event is to be held regardless of weather conditions. Tents will be employed if there’s light rain, Hoffman said. “It’s a fun outing, and an opportunity for families to come out and enjoy a variety of activities,” she said, noting the event is likely to familiarize many families with the scenic site, which provides good access to trail systems. Registrations are not required, but are appreciated. For details, see the Conservancy's website or call 644-9673.
