NC Ministry holds annual Gala
LAKE GEORGE — Whether hosting a gambling casino would boost local prosperity in Warren County or detract from the local quality of life was debated with passion Monday as about 240 area residents spoke their minds at a public forum held at Fort William Henry Conference Center. The session, sponsored by the Lake George Village Board started with presentations from Attorney Michael Garry of Albany, and Robert Sturges, an attorney who has served as an executive of Nevada Gold Casinos, decades after he was a deputy Attorney General in New Jersey that fought organized crime involved in casino operations. Sturges talked of substantial positive economic benefits of municipalities hosting casinos, while Garry detailed the status of the legislation and court challenges that are likely to accompany New York State’s venture into hosting up to nine casinos. Sturges said that a casino in Warren County would dramatically increase tourism, and that event planners preferred to host business conventions

NC Ministry Gala banquet raises record sum for charity By Thom Randall
email@example.com QUEENSBURY — A capacity crowd attending North Country Ministry’s annual gala banquet Friday April 26 participated in unraveling a fictional mystery — the “kidnapping” of famed area auctioneer Martin Seelye — as a record amount of money was raised for the charitable agency. The banquet was held at Hiland Park Country Club. A meandering wealth of “evidence” — including a ransom note with words cut from a magazine, a glue gun, map and key — led the audience from one witness or suspect to another, all gala attendees. Concluding the madcap tale, Seelye showed up with his wrists and mouth duct-taped, as evidence indicated that noted area philanthropist and cardiologist Dr. James Morrissey was the prime suspect. Morrissey pulled a fistful of dollars from a black doctor’s bag, all but admitting he had bound Seelye up in a plot to stash money away to build a halfway house for former SUNY Adirondack presidents.

During North Country Ministry’s gala banquet April 26, Dr. James Morrissey (right) was identified as a prime ‘suspect’ in the conclusion of a fictional kidnapping mystery, as he opened his doctor’s bag and pulled out a fistful of cash at the prompting of plot narrator Bob Myers (left). The drama prompted plenty of laughs from the capacity crowd at the banquet.

With the various gala patrons involved in the plot — and peppering their performances with humorous ad-libs, the drama provided plenty of laughs for 45 minutes or so as attendees finished their meals. The dinner-theater mystery was written by and emceed by Bob Myers, who operates Adirondack FlatLine Players along with Lynn Gorham. North Country Ministry Board member Anne Smoczynski, who co-chaired the gala with Charleen Bivona, said Saturday that due to the generosity of the gala sponsors and various donors, the event raised a record mount of money for charity. “It’s really moving to see so many people and businesses step forward like this,” she said. North Country Ministry is the leading outreach agency in northern Warren County, known for helping connect people with job and housing opportunities, as well as providing advocacy work, vital emergency aid and help in parenting and child-care issues for hundreds of families per month over a 650-square-mile area. “Despite challenging economic times, the donations raised through the gala surpassed last year’s $36,000 and we’re very excited,” Smoczynski said. “This is due to the generosity of hundreds of people — our sponsors, underwriters, auction donors, gala participants and the many volunteers who’ve worked hard to make this happen.” Major underwriters and sponsors include National Grid, the law firm of Stafford, Carr & McNally, James and Kay Morrissey, Trustco Bank and Barton International, as well as Cronin’s Golf Resort, Community Bank, Behan Communications, Glens Falls National Bank, Brian Landenberger of Schroon River Animal Hospital, Steve and Sandi Parisi, the Law Firm of John B. Pohl, and the accounting firm of Marvin & Co. — plus media sponsors Reginal Radio Group and Denton publications. Smoczynski said that the gala banquet sold out, leaving several dozen people on a waiting list. This response, she said, was a record for North County Ministry, which has been serving urgent needs in the North Country since 1992.

where casinos were located. He continued that casinos routinely employ 2,000 people and generate $300 million annually — as well as generate about 1,800 additional jobs in the community and another $150 million in spin-off economic activity locally. “A casino would be a huge magnet for visitors, and everyone would benefit,” he said. Sturges predicted that a casino would boost the fortunes of nearby businesses, citing surveys that show casino visitors routinely eat or shop outside the casino complex. After the presentation, a number of residents objected to the village leaders not offering a balance of professional opinion on the issue, as they were hosting two advocates for casinos, yet no one speaking about the potential negative aspects of hosting gambling. “We’re being sold a bill of goods — there are no anti-casino representatives here,” Zach Richards said, looking at the village board. Resident Bonnie Colomb challenged Sturges’ optimism over hosting a casino. “You are throwing around grandiose figures,” she said. “Transforming Lake George from a family-friendly resort to a gambling destination is repugnant.” Criticizing Village Mayor Robert Blais and Town Supervisor Dennis Dickinson for their comments of apparent support for a casino published in the Lake George Mirror, Colomb offered some advice. “The leaders of this community have to find out different ways to solve the problems of growth and economic success that
is so needed — we are a different, quaint village that has a ton of history that could be parlayed into a strong future.” Lake George Steamboat Co. owner Bill Dow offered an opposing view, citing how hosting riverboat gambling in Mississippi gave thousands of people jobs, pulling them out of poverty, while providing vital support for local schools. He criticized Warren County officials for not yet lobbying the state for a casino. “Saratoga County leaders are behind hosting a casino 100 percent, but our county fellas have done zero,” he said, noting that a casino in Saratoga Springs — considered a likely site — would offer no benefits for Warren County residents. “If we don’t speak up for this, it is damn short-sighted of us.” Lake George store owner Patty Kirkpatrick also expressed support for a casino, in part because it would boost property values, which she said had been stagnant for longer than a decade. “I strongly urge our county supervisors to get on the ‘casino train’ for the vitality of Lake George,” she said.

SUNY Adirondack Business Professor Chandler Atkins also expressed support, noting it was a trend that Lake George residents shouldn’t ignore in the face of local youth moving away due to more prosperous career prospects elsewhere. “We are exporting our students,” he said. “But if we support this, our tourism industry could grow amazingly.” John Carr, owner of Adirondack Pub & Brewery, said he recognized the potential economic benefits, but he personally didn’t like gambling — and had reservations about Lake George hosting a casino. Although a casino would likely provide year-round employment, perhaps for 1,000 or so people in town who now live below poverty level, there might be negative offsetting factors, he said, citing that multi-national corporations might be the only entities reaping the substantial benefits that some people predict. We have to investigate this,” Carr said. “A lot of research needs to be done.”

Adirondack Journal Editorial
Not the time for petty politics Common sense, political convenience
f you want the type of finger-pointing and sabre-rattling that often comes with state and federal government, then look no further than the small Essex County town of Elizabethtown. Over the past year-and-a-half, a constant battle between the current administration and members of the ousted old guard have exchanged a firestorm of accusations and inuendo at board meetings, through letters to the editor and other avenues. In the most recent exchange, former town board member Ken Fenimore requested, through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIL), the endof-year financial records of the town from current supervisor Margaret Bartley. Bartley and the town complied with the request and sent Fenimore the documents. One critical mistake was made, however. The financial information was handed over with account numbers to the town’s reserves listed for all to see. The bank statements were then posted at the Elizabethtown Post Office along with remarks criticizing the town board. Fenimore later admitted to posting the information. A post office employee removed the documents, only to find them re-posted the next day. This is the most recent example of a battle between the old regime and the new blood that has been taking place since the 2011 election, when Bartley edged Merrihew, 254-238, for the position of supervisor. Merrihew was gracious in defeat, but some supporters were not, including a handful of party faithful who went so far as to blame this newspaper for the loss. Since that time, banter has gone back and forth over several topics with each side having a cadrer of supporters. Topics have included the legality of town meetings under the Open Meetings Law; the handling of the Otis Bridge removal; a land deal between the county and Bartley along with her husband, Harry Gough; the management of the town’s sewer project; the budget process and the handling of the town’s finances. There should always be room to seek answers from political officials and bring “sunlight” to government proceedings. We, the people, have the right to know what our elected officials are doing with our tax dollars and how they are leading our towns, counties, states and country. Disagreement can occur, as people have differing opinions, leadership styles, backgrounds and trains of thought. When disputes arise, leaders should then come together and solve the problems with debate and compromise, one not being effective without the other. Look no further than the recently signed
contract between the Essex County employees union, CSEA, and the county, where both sides openly admitted that they did not get everything they wanted, but came to a compromise with the best interest of all involved. In this case, however, the battle lines that have been drawn have seldom been solely about only the issues. The tone of letters and statements from both camps has increasingly turned personal, sarcastic and even a little hateful toward one another. The monthly call-and-response that is playing out on local editorial pages has devolved into a “are too, are not,” name-calling, playground war of words. While some of the participants in this dance have maintained the high road, others exited that path and the time has come for this senseless squabble to end. What is playing out is the type of politics that we find unacceptable in Washington and in Albany, with people unwilling to lose themselves in the greater good and instead placing more emphasis on the letter that follows their last names. People engaged in government need to be less concerned with party politics and more concerned with the politics of the people. That’s when work gets done, when people work together and set aside their personal agenda for the common good. That doesn’t happen under a Hatfield vs. McCoy clash for power. Local politics is for many of our youth their first experience with public service and presents them with their first impression on how to conduct ones self in public. It’s important to learn how to express your views and how to cooperate with those of different views. Public servants must learn to work together for the good of the people they serve. Petty and vindictive battles like Elizabethtown is experiencing only serve to create further discord within the community rather than pride in the performance of the community uniting despite differences. At the same time, there is one thing we will never do and that is stifle the debate by refusing to publish letters from Mrs. Bartley or Mr. Fenimore, as some have suggested. Letters to the editor are one of the few places where people can have an open conversation on the issues of the day and not hide behind a screenname or anonymous post. Whether you agree or disagree with the opinion, people who write letters are more likely to do one thing than those who hide behind anonymity — think before pressing send. We’d just like to see the time wasted on these personal vendettas spent instead on the greater good of the people of Elizabethtown. —Denton Editorial Board

Turning Back the Pages By Jean Hadden 100 Years Ago - May 1913 Shirt Co. forms alliance
The Empire Shirt Company of Warrensburgh has formed a big business deal with one of the largest collar manufacturing concerns in Troy which provides for the sale of the entire output of the local factory, with its present capacity doubled. The Troy concern, which manufacturers collars and cuffs exclusively, has 25 salesmen on the road covering the entire region and each one of these men will carry a complete line of the Empire Shirt Company’s samples. This will positively assure a ready market for all the goods that can possibly be made here. The factory will be greatly enlarged and when the fall business begins, there will be a great demand for operators. This means much to Warrensburgh. With plenty of work for everyone, the old days of prosperity will return. The empty houses, of which there are at present not a few, will be filled and property values will rise again. Town businessmen in all lines of trade will share in the benefits of the upcoming boom. Families in surrounding towns who desire steady work need not hesitate to come to Warrensburgh in the fall as they will indeed find a good life here.
Henry Crandall’s will contested
The late Henry Crandall died about two months ago, leaving his entire estate, estimated at $1 million, in trust for the city of Glens Falls. Most of the estate is real property, part of which is a park of several thousand acres. Several persons who claim to be heirs of the late Mr. Crandall have taken steps to contest the aged philanthropist’s will. The heirs are Harvey S. Crandall of Lake George, Henry Crandall Durkee, Anna Wickes and Anna M. Lawlor. They maintain that the will is not the last will and is therefore invalid.
Will Rogers becomes a father
World famous salty comedian and actor Will
Rogers, now touring the country after successfully appearing on Broadway vaudeville stage, has become a father for the second time. His wife Bettie Blake gave birth to Mary Amelia Rogers on May 18, 1913 at her mother’s home in Rogers, Ark. (Note - Cowboy philosopher William Penn Adair Rogers, one of the best known performers in the country, was famous for his saying, “I never met a man that I didn’t like.” He often made political jokes about what he read in the newspapers. He took his first airplane ride in 1915 and later died on Aug. 15, 1935 when he was 55 years old at Point Barrow, Alaska, in a plane crash with aviator Wiley Post.)
Death in the news
William O. Terry, 41, lessee and landlord of the Bolton House, died Sunday evening after only two hours illness of cerebral hemorrhage. He was apparently in good health until around 7 p.m. when he complained of severe pains in his head. Two physicians were called who could afford no relief. Rev. Father Livingstone was called from Lake George to administer the last sacraments of the Catholic church. George Streeter, 45, proprietor of the Phoenix Hotel at Hague, died Saturday evening after an illness extending over several years. He leaves a widow, one sister and three brothers, Eugene, Scott and Robert Streeter. Miss Jane Nichols, 75, a lifelong resident of Lake George, was found dead in bed at her home Monday afternoon on Canada street. She had been ill for more than a year. Three brothers, Sidney, Melvin and Henry Nichols and three sisters, Lorene, Eliza and Eve Nichols, survive her. George Morrison, infant son of Eugene Morrison of Schroon Avenue, Warrensburgh, died Tuesday night of German measles. The child was practically recovered when the disease attacked the brain and quickly caused death. Mrs. Nelson Alger died March 31, 1913 at her home on Horicon Avenue, Warrensburgh, after a short illness of pleurisy. She is survived by her husband and one daughter, Florence Alger.

Over the fence
I’ve discovered that May 5 is National Hoagie Day, which is amusing — but why not take the opportunity to make several of these sandwiches and have a picnic with the family? Perhaps even bring your fishing poles with you, and maybe you will be lucky enough to catch a few fish from an Adirondack waterway. A family on High St. has lost their feline companion — a medium-sized black and white cat that was last seen on April 12. The creature answers to “Amis” or “Moo.” If you have seen him or know of someone who has, call 623-3987. Warren County Bicentennial pins are available for purchase. To obtain one, contact Cheryl Kenyon at 623-9718 or Sally Feihel at 623- 4889 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The commemorative pins are reasonably priced at $5 each, and pay tribute to our county’s legacy.

Historic affair remembered
John W. Millington, a native of Chestertown but now a resident of Portland, Oregon, who served two terms of enlistment in the Union Army during the Civil War and was a member of the party that pursued and captured John Wilkes Booth, 27, near Bowling Green, Va. after his assassination of President Abraham Lincoln, has written a graphic description of his part in the historic affair containing many little known details. Millington was born in 1843 and enlisted in Company E, 93rd N.Y. Volunteer Infantry in 1861. A copy of the story is in the possession of the writer’s brother, Robert Millington of Warrensburgh. John Millington related that before Booth died of gunshot wounds on April 26, 1865, the prisoner told others to tell his mother that what he did was “for the good of the country.”
Lively auction brings crowd
One of the largest auction sales ever held in Glens Falls or vicinity was held April 30, 1913 at the Griffing & Leland stable which lasted all that day. According to auctioneer Frasier, he was forced to continue the sale one day longer. A large number of buyers were present from out-of-town and many good bargains were secured. The sales totaled $5,000 the first day and at least $20,000 worth of stock remained. Two matched pairs of coach horses were sold out-of-town and a handsome pair of gray horses were sold to the Lake Placid Club for $495. W.M. Stone of Saratoga secured a handsome

Benefit set for fire victim
On Friday May 17 the Thurman Station Association will host a benefit for Claudia Jean Wheeler of Wolf Pond Stables, who suffered substantial losses due to a fire. The blaze demolished a shed that housed her chickens, a great deal of equipment, tools, kids’ bikes, and the costly generator needed to power her home. The benefit will be conducted at the Thurman Town Hall and will feature coffee and food-to-go for sale. Proceeds are to benefit Claudia and her family.

pair of gray cobs for $470. Two demi-coaches were sold, one to city liveryman Charles W. Seeley, and another to Mr. Pattridge of Schuylerville. Many buyers who traveled long distances could expect to secure excellent bargains. Mayor Griffing is to retire after 30 years in business and he has stated that everything will be sold and the business will pass out of existence.
Putting his mouth over the spout of a steaming tea kittle, the 5-year-old son of Charles Harrington of Harrington Hill, Warrensburgh received burns in his mouth and throat which it is feared will cause his death. Little Robert Moses, son of Frank Moses of Chester, is ill with scarlet fever and the house has been placed under quarantine. Several cases of German measles have also been reported there. In North Thurman, the heavy wind that blew the last week of March 1913 blew down a barn on Henry Moon’s place. The structure was 30 by 60 feet and the timbers were all broken up and the structure was ruined. George Jenks of Landon Hill, Chester delivered a barrel of maple syrup at Riverside Station, April 12, 1913, to be shipped to a customer in Rutland, Vt. Fred R.

Whitewater Derby, Adventure Fest set for this weekend By Andy Flynn email@example.com
NORTH CREEK â€” Itâ€™s time to celebrate the 56th Annual Hudson River Whitewater Derby and 4th Annual Adirondack Adventure Festival May 3-5. New this year for the Whitewater Derby is the NotSo-Wild-Downriver Race on Saturday, May 4. Whitewater Derby organizer Kate Nightingale suggested that the race is a good race for Scout groups, college outing groups, and paddling clubs or for old-time racers who still canoe but have no interest in running the slalom or Sundayâ€™s race. The race fees are $20 for Slalom & Downriver, $15 for Novice Slalom, $10 for an additional Slalom race $10, and $10 for the new race. The Adirondack Adventure Festival â€” Friday-Sunday, May 3-5 â€” is a weekend full of outdoor fun, entertainment, and family adventures around the Gore Mountain region. This family-oriented event was created to increase the number of people visiting North Creek for the White-
water Derby and offer other non-sports activities for paddlersâ€™ families while they are in town.

North Country Ministry receives large donation NORTH CREEK â€” A donation of $78,000 has been given to North Country Ministry in honor of Father Paul Cox of Cleverdale. Father Cox was most recently former pastor of St. Maryâ€™s Church of Glens Falls and Scared Heart of Lake George and is currently Sacramental Minister at St. Ceciliaâ€™s of Warrensburg. The gift was given by Tim McDonald of Manchester, Mass., whose family was impacted by the friendship and kindness of Father Cox when he was a young priest at St. Vincent de Paul parish in Albany. McDonaldâ€™s sisters, Patty Rossi and Karen McLaughlin, wrote that both and he and Father Cox are humble men who donâ€™t seek recognition but both felt this story might create an awareness and opportunity for others to pay it forward in a way they know will help others in need. Father Cox and his Lake George parish were founding supporters of North Country Ministry, which began in 1992 in Warren County and have continued to lend their support to this day. It is McDonaldâ€™s hope that there are many other people who were helped by Father Coxâ€™s compassion and are now in a position to honor him with a gift to North Country Ministry. The organization is planning to expand the Warrensburg building and create a larger food pantry and Babyâ€™s Place Program. This donation will be used for emergency services and to contribute to this expansion. There are currently a hundred volunteers who help in a variety of ways to serve nearly one thousand people a month in an area over 650 square miles.

In the years before thee Civil War (1861-65), Ann Reeves Jarvis of West Virginia helped start “Mothers’ Day Work Clubs” to teach local women how to properly care for their children. These clubs later became a unifying force in a region of the country still divided over the Civil War. In 1868 Jarvis organized “Mothers’ Friendship Day,” at which

Letters to the Editor School employee expenses need to be cut To the voters of the Lake George School District: We are nearing the May 21 vote on the 2013-14 budget and all-important election of four candidates to the school board to represent you the parents, students, and taxpayers. What did the senior members of the board do for the No. 1 priority, the students, after the last budget passed? They voted to give the teachers a four year contract with raises of 2.28 percent, 2.81 percent and 2.9 percent plus their salary step increases which average 2.5 percent each year (with some exceptions — there is no step increase in year 2013-14). Like our Senators and Congressman, they have a spending problem — always asking for more money. Just recently, the district had $147,000 in state aid reinstated. Could that money along with some additional reserve fund money which is now in excess of $800,000 (your money) have lowered the tax increase to zero? All this, as the taxes increase enrollment declines. I wonder how many more students we will lose next year? Since the year 200809 we have seen a steady decline in enrollment, 140 less students. The cost for district employee health insurance for a less-expensive family PPO plan was $22,045 annually plus Medicare costs. The figures for 2013-2014 costs are not yet available. Also, the cost to the district for dental insurance is between $592 and $1,485 annually per employee. Under the Obama Health Care Act, who do you think will pay the 40 percent tax on any plan which costs more than $18,000? Most eligible district employees can retire after 10 years of service with health insurance for life with only a minor contribution

North Warren - Celebrating our Past, Present & Future
Mott Phelps was one of the “mountain folk” who’s family have been in the Adirondacks for many generations. His grandfather, Orren
Phelps, moved from Vermont and eventually settled in Keene. He became a guide in the High Peaks and was known as “Old Mountain Phelps”.
One of the smaller mountains around Mt. Marcy was named Phelps Mountain after him. Mott Phelps was a carpenter like his father before him. Together with his father, Bishop and his brother, Frost, they ran the Phelps Sawmill in Pottersville. After the Pottersville fire in 1918, Mott got it in his head that there had to be a better way to fight fires so he invented “The
Phelps Pump”. He and his brother mounted a 50 gallon tank to hold water on large wagon wheels strong enough to hold the weight and attached the Phelps pump to it. The Phelps pump was used for years and similar pumps were used all over the country. When the Pottersville Volunteer Fire Department was formed in 1948, Mott and Phelps were elected Honorary Members. Mott Phelps will be one of several citizens to be recognized during the North Warren Celebration on August 24th.

As a member of the school district’s Community Relations Committee and a voice at board meetings, I have talked with newer board members and some candidates and it is refreshing to hear their proactive thoughts and ideas to move the district toward greater excellence. They want more student opportuni-
ties while watching out for the taxpayers. With your help, we have applied the brakes to the runaway budget increases, but we need some fresh thinking on the board. I urge you to take this unique opportunity and carefully consider who you vote for. Philip Ostrom Lake George JOAN A. BURNS MAR 28, 2013 Burial for Joan A.

Millington honored for achievement at NWCS CHESTERTOWN — Krista Millington, a senior at North Warren Central School, was recently recognized as local Student of the Month by the Chestertown Rotary Club. Daughter of Donna and William Millington of Chestertown, Krista is known for her diligent dedication to academics, her sports accomplishments and her community involvement, school Guidance Director Mike Therio said. “An appreciation for life and for those around her is evident in Krista’s interaction with others,” he said. “She is an individual who consistently places the needs of others before hers.” Krista has served as a key player on the award-winning Varsity field hockey team throughout high school, Therio said. She also is a contributing member of the Varsity softball team. Her participation in extra-curricular activities include active membership in the North Warren Students Against Destructive Decisions, and she has served on both Prom and Yearbook committees. Krista is also a member of the North Warren Natural Helpers team. Through this program, she and other students reach out to troubled youth. Krista’s involvement with community life is extensive. She serves as a eucharistic minister in her church and helps with community dinners and charity fundraising. In her free time, Krista enjoys outdoor activities including hiking and camping. Her appreciation of the outdoors provides her with opportunities to spend quality time with friends and family, Therio said. Her various work experiences, whether babysitting, employment at an ice cream store, or for her father’s construction business, have taught Krista personal responsibility as well as leadership skills, Therio continued. “Krista has proven herself to be a dependable and capable worker and is always a pleasure to interact with,” he said. “Krista’s caring personality and interest in others will serve her well in her pursuit of a career in criminal psychology this Fall.”

10 a.m. to about 4:30 p.m., a supplementary “Taste of the Adirondacks” event followed from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. — in which a chef from Lake Placid cooked up delicacies for legislators to sample — supplied with food from the North Country, including produce obtained through Adirondack Harvest. Adirondack Local Government Review Board CEO Fred Monroe of Chestertown said Adirondack Day really shifted into high gear as soon as the beer and food was available “Adirondack Day was very well received,” he said. “It highlighted a lot of good things happening up here.” Representatives from various participating Adirondack organizations had the opportunity to accomplish some lobbying work during the expo, Davis said, noting that among the objectives were support for family farmers, promotion of self-sustaining local economies and strengthening Adirondack communities. “People from the Adirondacks got a lot of ideas across, and groups shared their missions,” she said. State Sen. Betty Little, who arranged for the expo, said she was pleasantly surprised with the robust turnout among her peers. “It was really exciting,” she said. “We’ve since heard a lot of good reactions.”

Adirondack Challenge website launched By Andy Flynn
firstname.lastname@example.org ELIZABETHTOWN — Empire State Development officials this past week launched a webpage for Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Adirondack Challenge whitewater rafting event on the I Love NY website. The launch was made on the same day — Monday, April 29 — the governor officially announced that the Adirondack Challenge would be held on July 21 in the town of Indian Lake, Hamilton County. The News Enterprise and Adirondack Journal were the first to report on the date and place on their websites April 24 after acquiring a tentative agenda for the event. The governor made his remarks on Susan Arbetter’s radio show, “The Capitol Pressroom,” on WBFO. He didn’t reveal any specifics. The I Love NY website — http://iloveny.com/Summer/ Themes/ADK-Challenge.aspx — calls the 2013 Adirondack Challenge “a celebration of New York’s beautiful Adirondacks region, culminating in a day of water races, food, music and more!” It outlines the following components: •Invitational whitewater race •Internationally competitive flatwater race •Race-day festival with music, food, demos, displays, kids activities and more •Lead-up calendar of fun events across the region More details are promised “soon.” Cuomo proposed the Challenge, a national whitewater competition, on Jan. 9 during his annual State of the State address. However, since the speech, no details have been made publicly available. The idea came from a rafting trip Cuomo took on the Indian and Hudson rivers in September 2012.

Farm programs and federal school lunch mandates have to date favored massive farming operations at the expense of local farmers, Whalen added. “This bill has provisions to encourage beneficial farm-to-school initiatives,” she “Allowing schools access to federal funding for purchasing local products is a tremendous plus, as it supports the local economy and gets healthy locally-grown foods into our schools.” Justine Denison, a farmer from Schaghticoke who raises produce for a large CSA network, sells directly at various farmers markets plus wholesales vegetables to grocers, said she was happy about the provisions in the new bill. “I’m excited and grateful,” she said. “We really appreciate how the legislators respect what we do.”
Whalen said that more needs to be done to aid the smallest farm operations, which now face hefty insurance costs and permitting fees. She noted that an enterprise she was involved in, Adirondack Farm-to-Pantry Initiative, had difficulties last year obtaining adequate liability insurance. Smaller dairy farms are suffering the most, she said, noting that many in upstate rural New York have gone bankrupt. “It’s very difficult now for farmers to make a decent living,” she said. “I’d like to see measures like this go a lot further in the future.” Among Whalen’s suggestions were that health insurers, who now offer cash incentives to their clients for signing up for gym memberships, extend similar payouts to clients participating in workplace CSAs which deliver nutri-

tablish grants to improve farm profitability and sustainability — and increase the consumption and affordability of fruits and vegetables in low-income communities. Teresa Whalen of Warrensburg, who has been working for several years to connect Adirondack residents and schools with local farmers and their products, said she was excited about the various initiatives contained in the farm bill. “This bill has a lot of merit — it’s wonderful,” she said minutes after she talked with Gillibrand about Adirondack farm sustainability initiatives and praised the Senator for her endorsement of the Local Farms bill. This new measure helps alleviate problems now threatening the survival of small farms, said Whalen, who is affiliated with Adirondack Harvest, based in Essex County. Also, Whalen is promoting the Workplace CSA Farm Share Program, which is operated by Juniper Hill Farm of Wadhams.

She continued that the measure would promote sustainable agriculture, expand access to credit and markets for area farmers, and increase access to local, affordable fresh produce. The farm bill as now drafted would: • allow SNAP benefits (formerly food stamps) to be redeemed at farms and Community Supported Agriculture operations; • employ mobile technology for redeeming SNAP benefits at local food markets; • provide $20 million in incentives for families on public assistance to buy fresh fruits and vegetables; • allow small school districts to use federal money to purchase fresh local produce; • double the money now allocated to develop community food projects; • ensure that lenders provide credit to qualifying smaller local farms; • extend insurance programs to address needs of smaller diversified farms that can’t now NORTH RIVER — The North River United Methodist get coverage to meet their Church located on 194 Thirteenth Lake Road will be hostneeds; ing a community potluck dinner at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, • provide for enhanced inMay 24.
