Stec now lone GOP Assembly candidate




By Tim Follos ELIZABETHTOWN — There will be no Republican Primary in the race for what will be the 114th Assembly District. Regan bowed out of the race for the race to represent the state’s 114th Assembly District seat last week, clearing the field for Queensbury supervisor Dan Stec. “Looking at the big picture in terms of how I would like to get involved with public service again, it just seemed that there would be better, more effective ways to do that than engaging in a drawn-out, months-long battle,” said former Glens Falls mayor Robert Regan. “It just seemed to make more sense to do it a different way.” Thurman Town Supervisor Evelyn Wood and Lake Placid accountant Doug Hoffman joined Stec and Regan in seeking the endorsements of the local Republican committees in the four counties that comprise the Assembly district: all of Warren and Essex counties and parts of northern Saratoga and northern CONTINUED ON PAGE 17

Beginning in 2013, those homeowners earning up to $24,000 in total income will become eligible for a 50 percent reduction in county taxes, and those earning from $24,001 to $32,400 may seek discounts of 45 percent to 50 percent, based on a sliding scale.

Local authors, music to spice up Richards Library bring book sale Proceeds to help support the library By Katherine Clark WARRENSBURG — The Richards Library will be holding their second annual book sale featuring readings from local authors and live music on Saturday, May 12. Proceeds from the event will help fund the library’s expansion project currently under way. Richards Library Director Sarah Farrar said it is a way for people to get a glimpse at the talent the area has to offer while supporting the library. “It was an idea we had last year to bring back the book sales after 15 years of not having them, with more entertainment,� Farrar said. During the first event in 2011, Farrar said rain hindered the festivities, but with four authors and the support of the community, the library was able to raise $500.

“I think we did well for the first time and we hope to go over that this year,� Farrar said. At the sale, people can buy used, donated or discarded books to help support the library, enjoy live music per-

WCS tax levy increase down to 1.6 percent thanks to state aid By Tim Follos WARRENSBURG — A few weeks ago Warrensburg taxpayers were looking at a 2.88 percent increase in their school tax levy. An influx of state aid, however, has allowed the Warrensburg Central School Board of Education to present voters with a 2012-13 spending plan that will increase taxes by 1.6 percent. The new, reduced tax levy falls well below the state mandated tax levy cap, which for Warrensburg Central is 2.89 percent. If approved by a majority of the voters May 15, the budget would result in residents of the Warrensburg school district with homes assessed at $150,000 seeing a $27.60 tax increase. Those numbers are based on this year ’s assessment and equalization

rates. To hold the tax increase to 1.6 percent, the district eliminated 12 jobs: those of two special education teachers, one elementary school teacher, a speech teacher, a family and consumer science teacher, and a technology teacher, as well as six support personnel. The assistant principal /athletic director position has been reduced to half-time. The teacher ’s association made no salary, step or health insurance concessions for the 2012-13 budget. Teachers at Warrensburg Central have been without a contract since June 30, 2011 and are currently in negotiations for a new contract. The school board and the teachers have reached a legal impasse in contract negotiations. When asked to explain what a legal impasse is, Superintendent Tim Lawson said it’s “a decision by either the board or the teacher ’s association — it was the board that

actually made that decision — when discussions don’t seem to be making any progress to call it an impasse. The New York State Public Employment Relations Board then assigns a mediator to meet no more than three times with the parties to facilitate an agreement. We’ve had one of those meetings so far.” When asked about the basis of the impasse, Lawson responded, “the board’s looking for concessions and the teachers were not in agreement with that and as a result we’re not making any progress.” Lawson and business administrator Cynthia Turcotte have agreed to another oneyear freeze in their salaries. “We’re not looking to make any cuts,” Turcotte said, “but being faced with the new tax levy limit and the elimination of the federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Fund, as well as rising health insurance premiums and escalating pension costs, we were faced with significant challenges and we had no choice but to make some of these reductions. They were all very difficult.” “We looked at everything and wanted to make sure that we would not be hurting programs and making sure that the students get the credits that they need. That was our emphasis. The administrators were not happy with any of the cuts, but they were pleased that we weren’t cutting any programs for the students,” the business administrator said. Turcotte said the cuts are making this a difficult, emotional time in the school district, but that it would not make sense to use the influx of state aid to keep a few teachers on board. “The next budget year is not going to be any easier than this year, and the cuts that we’ve made so far, if they’re not hurting programs, it’s best to keep the tax levy increase as low as possible. The money was not going to allow us to restore all the positions. All of those factors (rising health insurance and pension costs, etc.) will be in effect next year,” she said. “Cuts are never easy,” Lawson said. “It’s difficult because you’re affecting people. It’s

an unfortunate state of affairs, but in this economic climate, we’re not left with many options. We’ve done as much as we can with attrition and that just was not a possibility for us in this budget. We don’t have people that are eligible to retire.” Lawson said that the staffing cuts won’t eliminate programs, but noted, “there are obviously a couple of ways it hurts programs.” “In many cases it increases class size,” the superintendent said. “Also, from a scheduling standpoint, in order to offer the same electives, we will begin a multi-year sequence, as opposed to having them offered every single year.” Still, Lawson said he doesn’t “see that as that big of a detriment.” “Students just have to plan accordingly and the sequencing has to be appropriate as they pass through, but students can still graduate with the same electives, if they’re so inclined,” he said.

Upcoming events There will be a public budget presentation on April 20 in Thurman at 7 p.m., and a budget hearing on May 7 at 7p.m. in the Warrensburg school “cafetorium.” The League of Women Voters of Warren County will host a meet the School Board candidates forum following the May 7 budget hearing. Candidates Douglas West, W. Paul Weick, Richlene F. Morey and Brian Lace will address the public and answer questions. The four candidates are competing for two available seats on the board. Morey is currently on the board; Lace is a former member of the board. The vote on the 2012-13 spending plan will take place between 7 a.m and 8 p.m. on Tuesday, May 15 and will be held in the high school gymnasium. While the school district is not putting forth any propositions, Richards Library officials will be asking voters to approve a separate Library Levy to aid in the operation of the facility.

Adirondack Journal Editorial


Increase sensitivity to women’s issues


sat quietly in the dark, tears streaming down my face as her voice whispered in the blackness. Her grandfather sexually abused her since she was a little girl. Today, when peers talk about losing their virginity, she lies. But I was not mourning her, because, as she told her story for the first time, she took that giant leap from victim to acknowledged survivor. She was ready to live. A large crowd of mostly women, and some men, packed the second floor ballroom of Plattsburgh State’s Angell College Center for Take Back the Night. Take Back the Night is an international event, as people gather and take to the streets to raise awareness about violence against women, share stories, some for the first time, and heal and grow as survivors. Plattsburgh State students and their supporters were unable to hold the march in the streets this year. Plattsburgh’s Common Council approved it, but restricted it to the sidewalks, citing safety concerns and saying they never approved it for the streets in the past, although that is where it has taken place in the past, and with the assistance of local law enforcement. I believe the group should have been allowed to march in the streets. Women experience roughly 4.8 million intimate partner related physical assaults and rapes yearly, according to the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control. In 2006, 232,960 women in the United States were raped or sexually assaulted, according to the National Crime Victimization Survey. That’s more than 600 women daily. A survey conducted by the CDC in 2010 found that one in five women has been raped or has experienced an attempted rape, while one in six has been stalked and one in four has been beaten by their intimate partner. Besides the horrific examples of abuse, there is a glaring societal tragedy occurring in the North Country in terms of enabling and ignorance. Therapy Night Club and Sport Lounge hosted a Girls Gone Wild event last year, a clear example of the objectification of women and perverse glorification of a model of women too many young girls have damaged themselves physically and emotionally to mimic. Despite these realities, many in the North Country defended Girls Gone Wild and reverted to misogynistic cave-man like behavior, joking and commenting on the scantily clad women in ways some find acceptable, funny and harmless.

April 28, 2012

Meanwhile, a young woman walks down the street, minding her own business as a group of men cat-call and objectify her. That’s wrong for any woman to endure, but imagine if that woman had been victimized in the past and has difficulty walking by men, let alone ones who treat her like a meal. Or, while some so-called adults make light of Girls Gone Wild posters, a young woman has locked herself in the bathroom and is making herself vomit so she can lose weight and fit into a bikini the way the media says she should. Also sad is that city officials said last year’s police presence assisting Take Back the Night marchers was because the event coincided with Girls Gone Wild, which drew a big crowd. So I guess to garner support for a group working to save women’s lives you need to schedule alongside one that objectifies women. Take Back the Night is needed and should have been allowed in the streets, because the situation is dire. Plus, those who shared their tragic stories were healing, and what an uplifting way to do it, taking to the streets, declaring your strength and demanding your safety. I recall the first time I shared I had been sexually abused. How strong I would have felt to march in the streets beside survivors. Further reasons it is an important event and should be held in the streets were the insensitive and ignorant comments made by the public through media outlets in response to local news articles. They clearly speak from the privilege of never enduring such pain and brutalization. I recall one individual writing that Take Back the Night could be held in the streets as long as it didn’t make him late for dinner. It would do such individuals good to stop for such a march, get out of their vehicles, pay attention and take time out of their privileged days to listen to some stories of survivors. Another comment has been made that by not marching on the sidewalk, or possibly choosing another route, and opting instead to hold Take Back the Night inside, the women were basically cry babies and sore losers. I don’t know whether their decision was right or wrong. But I do know the men and women I saw that night were powerful and were not going to let men dictate how they held their celebration. They were bold and brilliant survivors living life on their terms. —Editor Stephen Bartlett

100 Years Ago - April 1912 Lake George’s latest victim Miss Grace Truesdale, 31, of Diamond Point on Lake George, was drowned at that place, Thursday afternoon, April 26, 1912 under circumstances that strongly indicate suicide. She had been in poor health since the death of her mother about a year ago and is said to have been subject to spells of despondency. She lived with her father, Marvin Truesdale in the post office building at Diamond Point. On Thursday afternoon, she left the house saying she was going for a walk and would visit a cousin who lived about a mile from her home. When she did not return in the evening the family became alarmed and telephoned to several of the neighbors but could find no trace of her. Fearing an accident, a searching party was organized and at 9 o’clock the young woman’s body was found by her brother, Fred E. Truesdale in the lake near a small dock a short distance from the old Truesdale homestead just above the Tremain place on the Bolton Road. The body was lying on the bottom in two feet of water. It is supposed that she wandered to her old home and going out on the dock either fell or stepped off into the water. Her relatives scout the idea of suicide. Besides her father and brother mentioned, she is survived by another brother, Charles Truesdale and three sisters.

Farm house burned A farm house owned by S.C. Herrick and occupied by Morgan Geering, about a mile and a half north of the old toll gate house on the Chester Road, caught fire from a defective chimney Friday afternoon, April 27, 1912 and was burned to the ground. Geering saved part of his household effects. The fire spread to the fields and ran rapidly through

the dry grass until it was extinguished by the men employed on the state road.

Murder trial scheduled Timothy Hill of Minerva, who has been in the Essex County jail at Elizabethtown since last August under indictment for having poisoned Mrs. Maurice Loveland, will be tried at a special term of Supreme Court to be convened at Elizabethtown on Monday, May 6, 1912. Justice H.T. Kellogg of Plattsburgh will preside. A panel of 100 jurors has been drawn for the trial. The defense lawyers have given no intimation of what their defense will be, but it is believed that they will endeavor to prove the woman committed suicide.(Note…The unusual case of the suspicious death of Anna Loveland, Timothy Hill’s live in girlfriend, was told in this column in the Feb. 11, 2012 issue of the Adirondack Journal.)

Watch for Sam up north Sam Brooks, the Northville merchant, has just returned from New York with a full line of up-to-date goods and will leave Northville April 27, 1912 for a trip up north. He intends to surprise the people with his new line of goods and the remarkable price he will ask for them. His horse drawn wagon will contain men’s clothing, dry goods, ladies’ shirt waists and furnishings.

Inmate fears bodily harm John Gross, a resident of Luzerne who ran away from the Warrensburgh County Home a short time ago, as he feared that the persons in charge would harm him, and who was later arrested in Glens Falls on a charge of vagrancy, has been adjudged insane and committed to the state hospital in Utica. Ernest S. Church, a young man residing near Lake George Village, has also been pronounced of unsound mind and was sent to the same institution.

Death in the news

Oldie: To have a good neighbor you also have to be a good neighbor. This also applies to the golden rule which has been passed down through the years, try it! I’m told that dump hours will not be changed this season. The C & D portion will be opened soon, but no date has been announced. Keep checking to see if there is still some llama fertilizer to use for your gardens. Call 623-3987, it’s free and all you have to do is bring your own containers. If you would like a vet co-op to check your animals at home call 623-9649 to arrange a time and date. On one of the busier days for all local EMS squads of course is the day that you too need help! Three local ambulances from three towns were all out on calls on April 10. But our local squad members managed to pull a miracle and got me to the hospital in our own ambulance. I want to thank Cindy B for making the call and a big thank you to Adam, Barb, Jean, and Ernie of the squad. Special thanks to my daughter for all their help. The Kenyontown Methodist church parishioners would like to thank the Martin Lumber Company for their assistance in helping with the big undertaking of taking down an extra big pine tree that had broken down in a wind storm and was in danger of doing damage to the church. Mr. Martin and his crew stepped up to help us out. It was very much appreciated.

now that the ice is finally out of the lakes. The log drive in charge of Jack Donahue started Monday morning, April 22, 1912 at the mouth of the Cedar River at North River. Two flocks of geese flew over West Stony Creek recently going toward Lake George. The first flock was a very large one which is called the double drag. They flew very low and could be easily shot by hunters. Charles E. Bennett will begin delivering ice on May 1, 1912 in Warrensburgh. William Morrison of Darrowsville is employed on the state road. Cleon Hall purchased Halsey Fuller ’s house and lot in Stony Creek. J.T. Lackey of Johnsburgh is building a new automobile garage and hen house. A bright baby girl was born to Mrs. William Hewitt in Garnet on Saturday, April 6, 1912. The family was originally from West Bolton and the mother is the daughter of Orlen Pratt of Warrensburgh. A son was born to Mrs. Abe Yandon of Newcomb in the Albany Hospital. A son was born to Mrs. John Ryan on April 10, 1912 in Bakers Mills. A daughter was born to Mrs. Robert Flansburgh, Friday morning, April 12, 1912 in Johnsburgh. Miss Lula E. Kenyon is home from Warrensburgh in April, 1912 to enjoy the Easter vacation with her parents, Sanford and Effie Kenyon. (Note…Sanford Allen Kenyon owned the Kenyontown Trading Post, an old and celebrated Thurman general store and emporium which he bought in 1908 from Clayton Pasco. I was devastated recently while reading a historical account of this establishment in a 2002 Thurman calendar that it was not mentioned that Mervin Hadden sold the place to the Murphy family in the late 1970’s before it burned down on Dec. 31, 1977. My day was ruined!) Thought for the day; A movement has been started to teach girls how to flirt so that they will be sure to get husbands. Flirting will nearly always get the husbands, but what girls really want is a single man. Readers are welcome to contact Adirondack Journal correspondent Jean Hadden at or 623-2210.

Remembering May Day Remember it’s May Day on the first when Boquets of wild May flowers were gathered in the woods, put in a tiny container and flung on a neighbors door! All grade school children in the small schools, with the teachers help at recess and lunch time were busy making little construction paper baskets or any kind of material to make a cone shaped basket with a handle. In the afternoon they were out at woodstove base; waiting for the flour and water paste to dry. We had to be careful not to break the handles as we had a lunch box to carry too! So after lessons were finished we all started up the dirt roads toward our homes. The May flowers only grew in one spot on our walk home, so we had to share them. Some of the baskets only got three or four but we were happy and excited. Next we would sneak up to a neighbors door, hang our baskets, knock loudly on the door, then run and hide and wait for the lady to find it. We did this at each house on our walk and even saved one for our mom. How we would laugh and giggle after the ladies pretended not to see us hiding. What a fun day was Thurman’s May Day. This old tradition was still alive in Thurman as of 2011!

Synthetic marijuana ban endorsed, now set for public vote By Thom Randall QUEENSBURY — Synthetic marijuana is likely to be banned soon in Warren County, since the county Board of Supervisors passed a resolution April 20 endorsing a local law prohibiting the substance. The vote set a public hearing on the proposed legislation for 10 a.m. May 18. County leaders have predicted it will be adopted on that date. The proposed county law would prohibit the possession, use, sale or distribution of synthetic marijuana or so-called herbal incense — and provide for criminal charges against those violating the law. Sold in stores under the trade names “Posh, “Wicked X,” and “K2,” the various synthetic marijuana substances — when ingested — are known to prompt violent, crim-

inal behavior as well as psychotic reactions, hallucinations, and thoughts of suicide. Although several weeks ago the state Health Department banned the sale of synthetic marijuana — which had until then been readily available — the possession and use of the substances continues to be legal. At the April 20 board of supervisors meeting, county District Attorney Kate Hogan praised the fast action of the county board for moving forward on banning synthetic marijuana. Last month, a board committee endorsed the proposed ban just minutes after she told the board of how destructive it has been in the lives of many citizens locally as well as nationally. She noted that the supervisors’ quick action may have helped prompt the state to move forward on their partial ban. “Warren County has shown more leadership than other counties on this issue,” she

said, noting that other municipalities’ leaders around the state are now contacting Warren County for advice on enacting similar measures. Hogan said that area school officials are now advocating for quick approval of a local law criminalizing the substances because more and more children are bringing it to school — a practice which threatens the health and welfare of children, she said. “There is tremendous concern among school officials,” she said. “They have no legal recourse to seize the substances.” Lake George citizen Joanne Gavin was also praised for her tireless campaign for a local ban, while awaiting a statewide or national ban, which may take months. Just five weeks ago, Gavin told the Lake George Town Board of the dangerous consequences of the substances, and she has been lobbying since for local laws to be passed.

When Gavin was publicly thanked at the April 20 meeting for her lobbying effort, she deferred the credit. “This is a real success story,” she said. In other business conducted at the meeting, the county board: •heard that the new Warren-Washington Counties Fire Training Center will be open and ready for use by April 27. Thurman Supervisor Evelyn Wood reported that the facility was finished on time, and the $400,000 in grant money — which would have been lost if the construction had been delayed even several weeks — was assured. “The grant has been saved, and we will soon have a very nice training facility,” she said. • unanimously approved a resolution requesting the state pass legislation that would allow the county to sell its See POSH BAN, page 18

STO NY CR EEK — Lo c a l residents of all ages worked side by side with community spirit on Saturday, April 14, as the Stony Creek Library’s “Dirty Dozen Garden Club” planted a community garden at the library. The club’s members, rang-

foot-tall sunflowers or newly appreciating a vegetable. “Last year, kids who said they hated peas came back this year wanting to plant peas,” she said. “And that’s what we want to see —real experience changing minds. Bartow quipped that a little mud in the library will be a small price to pay for the rewards to be gained through the gardening process. The Dirty Dozen Garden Club will continue to meet officially through May and unofficially through October. Bartow expressed thanks to the local Boy Scouts, library board members, volunteers, and for the sponsors of the program, the Town of Stony Creek Youth Program. She also expressed appreciation for a Stewart’s Shops Holiday Grant the library received for their program.

Chester Eagle Scout builds local landmark for veterans By Thom Randall

Reopening Thurs., May 10th!

CHESTERTOWN — Local Legionnaires gathered this week to thank a local Eagle Scout for spearheading a project that’s now providing the Legion headquarters in Chestertown with a new sign, flagpole, a parking lot and extensive landscaping. Jacob Hill, 16, a sophomore at North Warren High School, gathered monetary donations as well as labor and materials for a project that will for many years serve as a landmark in town, Legion Post 964 members said April 12. Legion Post 964 Commander Joanne Ellsworth said Jacob worked for months coordinating the project to replace a dilapidated sign. The effort included designing and constructing a new one with marble-topped granite pillars, plus moving a flagpole and installing lighting for flag illumination. The project also involved removing a tree, developing a new sod lawn and creating a new post parking lot — an subsequent idea of Hill's, Ellsworth said. The project included re-grading the front lawn to eliminate the depressions that would seasonally turn into mud-holes. Now, the lawn is a luxurious carpet of grass. “This project went far beyond beautification,” Ellsworth said, noting that Legion Post 964 shares the headquarters with local V.F.W. Post 5513. “This project makes all area veterans proud to say, 'This is our building.'” Hill said he tackled the two-year project — which has helped him earn Eagle Scout status — because of his respect for those who've served the nation. “I chose this project because I wanted to give back to the soldiers who protected everyone's liberty,” he said. In the project, which ended up with a $10,000 budget, he was aided by a considerable number of upcounty businesses and individuals as well as fellow Boy Scouts in Troop 30. The work was substantially complete this last November — by Veterans' Day. Hill earned his Eagle Scout rank in February, and he'll be formally recognized for the honor in a ceremony set for June 9. Deferring praise to others, Jacob said community members deserved credit for their generous contributions and willingness to get involved. Businesses contributing to the project included: T.C. Murphy Lumber, McCluskey's Hardware, Curtis Lumber, Champlain Stone, Buckman's Family Fuel, Peckham Materials, Panther Mountain Fitness, Crossroads Country Store, Najer Realty, Main St. Ice Cream Parlor, Saratoga Sod Farm, E-Z Marina & Storage, Klassic Stone, Lashway Unlimited, and TEC Protective Coverings. In addition to Jacob's fellow scouts, involved in the project were: Andrea Perry, Jason Monroe, Carol and Fred Monroe, John and Pam Ellsworth, Kevin and Heidi Feldt, Bill and Ann Galvin, Penny Redmond, Bella Boardway, Bonnie DuRoss, Howard Meade, Richard and Becky Otruba, Roger Bolton, Bill MacGlashlan, Eddie Thompson, Brad Hayes, Martin Cooper, Wayne Hayes, David Knickerbocker, Dave Bolton, Paul Breuer, Jim Speenburg, Joe Klewicki, Bob Walp, and Chris Stiles. Thanks also go to Jacob's parents Paul and Rebecca Hill, his grandparents Tom and Karen DuRose, and brother Ryan Hill, the Legionnaires said. Jacob Hill said he was proud of his work and he was particularly impressed that he’s seen drivers pull over in the evening and take a close look at the sign and flagpole. The Legion Post is located on Main St. next to the Town of Chester Municipal Center. ”I like that it’s right in town, and people will be appreciating the work for decades,” he said.

County Youth Fair to expand, include rural heritage festival WARRENSBURG — The Warren County Youth Fair, for years diminished in attendance and scope, is likely to reclaim some of its former glory by this summer. Under a new partnership between Cornell Cooperative Extension’s 4-H program and the Warren County Historical Society, plans are now moving ahead for a far larger festival than in recent history. In line with the planned expansion, the event — set for Saturday Aug. 11 — is to be re-titled as the Warren County Rural Heritage Festival & Youth Fair. The expanded fair is to not only include the annual youth fair talent show, horse show and youth produce and craft competitions — but also a variety of exhibits, demonstrations and vendors relating to the traditions of work and play in Warren County’s bygone years. Already lined up for the Heritage & Youth Fair are exhibits by the Washington Co. Fairground Museum, the Chapman Museum of Glens Falls, and demonstrations by the Merry Mohicans Squaredance Club and the Allies of Ongonquit. While the Fairground Museum will be welcoming people to operate old corn-


grinding apparatus and butter churns, the Chapman will be demonstrating Victorian games and toys. This first-time-ever partnership between Cooperative Extension and another organization to sponsor the event could double attendance and lead toward long-term revitalization of the county fair, Extension agent John Bowe said April 23. “With many new exhibitors and vendors and the added theme of local history, we’ll be offering an experience that’s fun and educational, while continuing to be very affordable,” he said. Plans also are underway for the fair to offer tethered horse rides, and living-history demonstrations of early Native American culture by the Allies of Ongonquit re-enactors. Also booked for the fair are the North Country Toastmasters Club with its members offering tall tales, and square dancing demonstrations and instruction — with all welcome to participate — by the Merry Mohicans club. Wool shearing and spinning demonstrations are also planned — as is a seminar on raising chickens, to be offered by Nemec’s Farm & Garden. Bowe added that animals may also be on exhibit. Of course, the various contests and

County Fair revival eyed Bowe added that such a partnership could bring the Warren County Youth Fair back to its glory days. In the 1980s, it was a two-day event featuring carnival rides, a midway, pony pull events, adult woodsmen’s competitions, and entertainment by prominent regional rock and country music bands. In those years, attendance could be as high as 10,000 over the weekend. In recent years, the event — now free of charge — has drawn merely 300 to 500 people total. Bowe said April 23 that this new partnership might blossom into a resumed effort to establish a county fair association to manage and operate the fair. For two years, talk has surfaced of privatizing the fair administration, but such efforts have stalled. Bowe added that Warren County’s plans to sell the fairgrounds to developer Richard Emerson of Warrensburg might benefit the fair ’s revival — although others have been wary of the move. Bowe said that Emerson would likely lend his expertise in marketing to promote the fair, as well as upgrading the buildings, which have deteriorated in recent years. Emerson has stated he intends to use the fairgrounds, which includes 25 acres and nine buildings, including barns and animal stalls, for staging events.

games of prior years, like the annual pie-eating contest, will also be featured. Plans also are underway to include farmers’ markets as well as antiques dealers, who will be encouraged to explain their artifacts and life in the olden days. A short presentation on the 2012 Heritage Festival and Youth Fair was presented to the Warren County Board of Supervisors at their April 20 meeting by members of the Warren County Historical Society, and the concept was well received. Also to be featured at the 2012 fair is a croquet tournament sponsored by the Warrensburgh Historical Society — and all county Supervisors were challenged, at the April 20 meeting, to compete in the tournament. Bowe said the historical society approached him in 2011, seeking information on holding a heritage festival on the countyowned fairgrounds last fall. Bowe said he advised them to partner with his agency to facilitate appropriate permits, and boost the prospects of both initiatives. Bowe praised the historical society members for their efforts to date. “They are working very hard, lining up vendors, demonstrators and educators,” he said.

Locals rally at Capitol to protest state mandates By Thom Randall ALBANY — Unfunded state mandates are forcing local government services to be eliminated and are prompting people and jobs to move out of state, area politicians warned at a rally held Saturday April 21 at the state Capitol. Nearly 100 people — including a dozen from Warren County — gathered on the Capitol steps to protest the burden of unfunded mandates that the state has imposed on its local municipalities. Two Queensbury supervisors, Dan Stec and Mark Westcott — who have campaigned extensively on the issue — were among the featured speakers at the rally. Westcott is an at-large supervisor from Queensbury, and Stec is head of the town government, as well as chairman of the county Board of Supervisors. Noting that state dictates are responsible for 90 percent of the county’s tax levy, Stec implored the protesters to lobby their legislators to outlaw or restrict unfunded mandates, as 27 other states have. Stec compared unfunded mandates to a frustrating hiking expedition — that local governments were being commanded to move faster, as more rocks were being put into their backpacks. “These mandates are killing the property taxpayers and the business climate,” Stec said. “Let’s pull these rocks out of our packs and leave them on the trail,” he said. Westcott said that with the tax cap, the ever-increasing mandates were forcing local governments — under the new 2 percent tax cap — to

slash vital services. “Unfunded mandates are growing at an unsustainable rate, and they are choking out local community programs,” he said. Town of Ballston Supervisor Patti Southworth noted that unfunded mandates passed down to Saratoga County cost the local taxpayers $61 million annually. “If the state paid for their own mandates, there would be no property tax at all in Saratoga County,” she said. It’s not only local governments that are being burdened, said John Blowers, a member of the Ballston Lake-Burnt Hills school board. He noted that by merely repealing a few key laws, school districts would have millions of dollars more annually to spend on providing a quality education. The most expensive and burdensome dictates, which should be repealed, he said, were: • The laws which restrict school boards in effective contract bargaining contracts with teachers’ unions and virtually guarantee teachers raises in perpetuity; • Laws that guarantee top wages for workers on school construction jobs, regardless of the local labor market; • Restrictions on purchasing of materials and equipment that artificially boost prices born by taxpayers; • State policies that dictate excess special education procedures and rules; and • The state’s Triborough Amendment, which guarantees teachers raises even while contracts are under protracted negotiation. Blowers said this last dictate alone costs his school district $550 per year, and adds a burden of about $93.5

Addressing a rally protesting unfunded mandates held Saturday April 12 at the state Capitol, Queensbury at-large Supervisor Mark Westcott says that such dictates are forcing local governments to abandon vital services.

million to property tax bills annually across the state. Rensselaer County Executive Kathleen Jimino said that unfunded mandates boost local taxes in the state so dramatically, they are 80 percent higher than the national average. She noted that in her county, money spent on the mandates spiraled 54 percent over the past five years, while local officials were forced to cut 11 percent from essential but non-mandated local services — which include paving roads, providing veterans’ medical transportation and senior meals.

Brian Telesh, a G.O.P official from Clifton Park, called for change via the voting booth. “Throw out the politicians that aren’t voting against mandates, and keep the ones who are fighting for fiscal sanity,” he said. Former Guilderland councilman and reformist Mark Grimm endorsed Telesh’s idea, urging citizens to recruit people untainted by politics to run for office and fight for fiscal sanity. “New Yorkers will be dealing with unfunded mandates from now until doomsday unless we recruit the

right new leaders,” he said. Saratoga County Clerk Kathy Marchione told the protesters how citizen outcry could make a difference. She noted that in fall 2009, when the state tried to impose a requirement that all motorists buy new license plates, 110,000 citizens signed an online petition, and the mandate was dropped. “Democracy still works,” she said. “People taking action makes a huge difference.” State Assemblyman Jim Tedisco (R-Glenville), agreed.

“The only way we’ll achieve change is through a grassroots effort,” he said. State Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin (R-Schaghticoke), who represents a substantial portion of the 108th district, called unfunded mandates the work of “dictators.” “There’s nothing more unAmerican than unfunded mandates,” he said. “It’s a cowardly way to govern, and it’s choking the life out of the nation’s greatest state.” The rally was held April 21 to coincide with the arrival of Tom Cavanagh, who is walking across New York State to protest unfunded mandates. Near the end of the protest rally, Cavanagh showed up, clad in a red, white and blue headwrap. He said that these mandates were boosting property taxes to the point that citizens had to choose whether to pay for food, medicine and utilities — or their everincreasing property taxes. “These mandates are bankrupting our communities, our counties, or towns — and the taxpayers who foot the bill,” he said, calling for people to urge their local school boards to pass resolutions in protest. Cavanagh, a citizen of Delaware County, started his 459-mile trek April 15 in Champlain, and plans to finish his trip in Long Island on May 2. Along his route, he stopped in Elizabethtown late last week to talk with Town Supervisor Margaret Barkley. The rally and trek were sponsored by the Upstate Conservative Coalition. Stec, a candidate for the 114th state Assembly District seat, and Westcott together were featured on a panel on unfunded mandate relief at the New York State Association of Counties conference held in January. More information may be found at Westcott’s website,

Dan Stec from page 1 Washington counties. The G.O.P. committees of these four counties have all endorsed Stec. He’s also won the endorsements of the Conservative Party committees of Warren and Essex counties as well as the nod from the state Independence Party. “The decision to seek the nomination in the committee process is one thing,” noted Regan. “The decision to go full-out with a primary is a whole other set of considerations. I had no desire to create any animosity in the party structure, which I think would have happened if I ran in the primary.” Regan, Wood and Hoffman have all endorsed Stec, as has the seat’s current occupant, Teresa Sayward, who is retiring. Regan said Stec is “very aggressive and very focused. That will serve someone well in any career.” “I think Dan’s very willing to get out and meet people,” Wood said. “Dan’s very personable. He’ll spend time talking to anybody he meets, getting to know them a little bit. It certainly is an asset to be able to do that. That will be an asset in Albany.” Stec, Wood and Regan appeared together at an event last week that stressed party uni-

ty and Wood’s and Regan’s endorsements of the presumptive nominee.

Stec said that Regan’s endorsement is significant.

“I do know him well,” Stec said. “There’s only one city in the district and he was the mayor of it for eight years — and he had a good term as mayor; he did a lot and he was aggressive — so, being the mayor of a significant municipality in the district it certainly means a lot.” Queensbury and Glens Falls are neighboring communities. “We have a lot of shared interests, and we have a lot of competing interests,” Stec said. “There’s always been some sort of issue or two between the city of Glens Falls and the town of Queensbury. It’s not as though we’ve always been in agreement.” There’s always been a healthy rivalry between Queensbury and Glens Falls, according to Stec, and there’s an interesting dynamic between the municipalities. Therefore, Stec and Regan haven’t always been on the same page of various issues. “It means that much more to me that he still respects me enough to give me a strong endorsement,” Stec said. No Democrats have announced an interest in competing for the seat. “Like I’ve said before, whether I have 10 opponents or no opponents, I have a district to travel to get to know, to get to know the people, to get to know the issues,” said Stec, the chairman of the Warren County Board of Supervisors. My game plan isn’t going to change.”

fare program, the change would far more than pay for itself. “We’ll be able to find $40,000 in the budget to help lowincome seniors,” he said. “This is not only the right thing to do, but it has relatively small impact, and it may pay for itself in other avoided costs.” All county supervisors except three — Matt Sokol and David Strainer of Queensbury and Evelyn Wood of Thurman — voted for the amended exemption change.


“It’s time to stop increasing taxes, stop all new capital spending, and reduce the size of government,” he said. Stec observed, however, that the estimated $40,000 tax shift at the $24,000 threshold would likely mean the average homeowner would have to pay merely $2 or so more annually to help out those with meager income. Stec also said that if the increased exemption kept just a few people in their homes rather than moving into Countryside Adult Home — or keep them from enrolling in a wel-

would shift the tax burden too radically. The prior threshold, in place since 2005, was $18,000, with a sliding scale of percentage discounts available to those earning up to $23,700 per year. Former Bolton Supervisor Deanne Rehm, longtime assessor for the town of Lake Luzerne, said the expansion of the exemption would likely spread to town and school district taxes — as other taxing authorities followed suit — amplifying the shift of taxes to others who also were financially stressed. She estimated that the higher threshold would prompt a $141,300 loss in county tax revenue that would shift to other taxpayers. “When you grant benefits, someone else has to pick up the bill,” she said. Supervisors listened to her point, and voted to support the amendment of Lake Luzerne Supervisor Gene Merlino to trim the qualification threshold to $24,000. Some county supervisors and several citizens questioned whether the expanded income threshold would allow wealthy retirees to qualify. Queensbury resident John Hodgkins warned that some wealthy people might cash in at the expense of those working hard, struggling to pay their bills. “The state’s senior tax exemption is not designed to help the truly needy,” he said, noting that seniors owning a $1 million home could qualify if they had no reportable income. “Their taxes would be shifted to the middle-aged and young families who are already facing financial stresses.” But in computing income for the exemption, state law mandates that all Social Security payments, investment income and dividends, earnings from rentals or businesses, income from trusts, estates, annuities, and pension plans be counted. The law also dictates that income from Workers’ Compensation, disability income is counted, as are IRA earnings and contributions, and a spouse’s earnings. Assets that produce no current income, however, are not factored in. Queensbury resident Sean Garvey suggested that instead of liberalizing exemptions for a few, county supervisors ought to concentrate on curbing tax increases.

Lake George Central School stays within tax cap By Tim Follos

LAKE GEORGE — The teachers at Lake George Central School have worked without a contract since their last one expired in June of 2011, but the framework of a new contract appears to finally be in place. “We’ve completed negotiations and we’re waiting for ratification from the teachers’ union as well as the board of education,” said Superintendent Patrick Dee. “Our teachers really stepped up to the plate. When we’re able to bring this contract forward, which should be in the next couple of weeks, the community will be very pleased with the concessions that the teachers have been willing to offer.” In other Lake George Central School news, the school board is set to put a budget before voters that includes a 1.32 percent tax levy increase. That falls within the state mandated tax cap of 2.21 percent for the district. As recently as early April, school officials were expecting a 1.98 percent tax levy increase, but an increase in state aid, an increase in the amount drawn from the school’s fund balance, and a voluntary staff concession have allowed Dee, Business Manager Kathleen DuBois and the board to lower that figure. “I went to each of the bargaining units that we have in the

Lake George park from page 1 the same terms they acquired it, and the idea was endorsed without objection. An amendment to the resolution was proposed by budget officer Kevin Geraghty and approved by the board, requiring that parking meter cash collected by Village employees be submitted to the county on a biweekly basis, so it can be regularly tallied and distributed. “We want to make sure those quarters don’t somehow disappear,” Geraghty said with a smile. Efforts to contact Lake George Mayor Robert Blais April 24 were unsuccessful , because he was on vacation.

district and asked if they would have an interest in making some concessions to help us lower our tax rate and that staff association willingly did so,” Dee said. The staff association represents secretaries, cafeteria staff and maintenance staff. “They wrote a memo of understanding that they would voluntarily double their health insurance premiums. They made those concessions to help out the district. It’s a striking demonstration of good faith and it shows that when times are hard the faculty and staff really pull together to help out our community,” said Dee. According to district Business Manager Kathleen DuBois, six district employees are retiring, and three will be laid off. Those positions include a high school math teacher, a remedial reading teacher in the elementary school, two special education teachers and two teacher’s assistants. Those jobs will not be filled. The staff cuts, combined with continued reductions in spending on supplies, a hold on classroom equipment purchases, the elimination of a custodian position and a bus run and driver cut $230,000 from the spending plan, DuBois said. Dee said that no programs would be cut despite the staff reductions. When asked if programs would inevitably be hurt by the staff cuts, Dee responded, “It’s going to be different. We’re going to need to look at how we do things and what we offer to students and when we offer things to students differently. It’s unfortunate that schools are being put

But calls to Lake George Village Trustee Ray Perry were answered. Reiterating discussion at recent village board meetings, Perry said Blais and the village trustees didn’t object to the town re-acquiring ownership of the park, but the county should sell a portion of its 62 percent ownership stake to the town, instead of the village relinquishing half of its 38 percent. “We don’t want to sell back any of our shares,” he said, noting that with town elections every two years, a new town board might want seek to reverse its decision for a second time, and that would likely threaten the stability and progress of the project. “We would welcome the town to become involved again, however, if they can acquire a part ownership from the county.”

fairgrounds off Schroon River Road in Warrensburg. The state generally requires that if municipalities sell park land, they must acquire a comparable new plot of land as a replacement park. Warren County has proposed to the state that it acquire the former Warrensburg Board & Paper Co. brownfield site on Queen Village Pond and develop it into a park to replace the fairgrounds. Last year, Warrensburg developer Richard Emerson submitted a bid of $61,500 for the fairgrounds, and he has expressed his intent to hold various public events at the site.

rensburg resident Martha Strodel warned the county board that such a sale to a private entity would mean the county’s prime site for outdoor events might not be available for such a use, particularly if it were subdivided for residences. Queensbury at-large supervisor David Strainer said Emerson had assured the county the fairgrounds would be retained substantially in its present status, and Emerson’s expertise at marketing events would mean boosted attendance. •approved resolutions to dissolve the county Human Resources department and combine its functions with the former county Civil Service office in forming the new county Department of Personnel.

• voted to buy five new police cruisers for the county Sheriff ’s Office. • approved a slate of raises, from almost $500 to $2,500 for 69 of the 130 non-union county employees, whose salaries have been frozen for three years. The salary hikes were granted following a study of the positions and their counterparts in the private sector. A planned $1,750 raise for county Sheriff Bud York was jettisoned minutes before the resolution was approved, because the county officials weren’t aware that boosting the salary of a public official would require passing a local law. In his post as county Sheriff, York is paid $93,280. He also receives a pension for his decades of work as an Investigator with the state Police.

in this position, but we are working diligently to make sure we’re not impacting our students’ ability to go out and be competitive when they leave Lake George.” Dee said that his school’s staff, administration and school board “came together this year under very, very difficult times under a contingency budget.” “We were extremely frugal in our spending throughout the course of the year, which enabled us to apply more fund balance toward the tax levy next year, and ultimately I believe our tax levy will be one of the lowest in the region,” the superintendent said. When asked for examples of that frugality, Dee pointed to reductions in staff development travel and noted that “our teachers’ purchasing for their classrooms was well under budget — they just weren’t purshasing items for their class; they did with what they had.” “We reduced a custodial position mid-year and the buildings and ground staff stepped up and took over the job without hiring. My administrative staff, including myself, have taken pay freezes the past two years. So, we’ve been very frugal to ensure that we’re doing what’s best for the community,” Dee said. Balloting this year will take place on May 15 from 10 a.m. - 8 p.m. at the Lake George Elementary School Gymnasium. A proposition to purchase a 66-passenger bus and a mini-van at a cost not to exceed $124,000 will also be on the ballot.
