Village urges state to purchase Berry Pond tract By Thom Randall
email@example.com LAKE GEORGE — The trustees of Lake George Village approved a resolution Monday urging the state Department of Environmental Conservation to purchase the Berry Pond tract from the Lake George Land Conservancy for inclusion in the state Forest Preserve.
The village’s resolution endorses the use of state Environmental Protection Funds for the acquisition. The resolution cites that such a purchase expands recreational opportunities for local citizens and visitors, and the purchase protects the water of Lake George since the tract drains into the West Brook Conservation Park, which is being developed into an environmental park designed to pu-

WARRENSBURG — A local woman who’s dedicated most all of her adult life to community service has been named “Citizen of the Year” for 2011 by the Warrensburg Chamber of Commerce. Since 1984, Whalen has been involved in various projects in the town of Warrensburg, concentrating on beautification, historic preservation, lifestyle sustainability and enriching the local fabric of life, Chamber official Sandi Parisi said
Monday. “Warrensburg is her heart,” she said. “It’s just amazing the time she’s devoted to the town through the years.” Whalen will be honored at a Citizen of the Year dinner set for June 17 at Grace's Restaurant in Warrensburg. Starting her volunteer work in 1987 with the relatively new Warrensburgh Beautification Committee, Whalen launched various landscaping efforts around town. See WHALEN, page 4

WARRENSBURG — While the Lake George Central School 2011-12 budget was crushed 389-911 Tuesday by local voters, the spending plans of three other northern Warren County school districts — North Warren, Warrensburg and Bolton — passed handily, and superintendents of the latter three district expressed thanks to voters for recognizing the cost-cutting and scrutiny that school officials invested in the financial plans. Lake George’s budget was the only one in Warren County to be rejected, and its projected tax levy increase of 3.98 percent, was the largest percent increase in the area.

ATHOL — The backroads and byways of rural Thurman were far busier than normal last weekend as the town’s community sale drew hundreds of shoppers to browse through collectibles, antiques and household goods stashed in barns, on porches and spread out on local lawns. The Thurman Townwide Sale, a staple attraction in the region since 1996, was held May 13-14. Sunday’s installment was all but drowned out by rain, but the earlier two days made up for the slack-off, event coordinator Perky Granger said. “It was wet and cold, but we had tons and tons of traffic — there were cars trailing in and out of my place back-to-back all day Saturday, she said, noting that shoppers at her sale hailed from such locations as Elizabethtown, Kingston, Greenwich, Granville, Massena, Vermont and Florida.

The event raised about $1,000 — but this feat is eclipsed by another purpose of the event, she said. “The important thing is that kids are getting active and the adults are too,” she said. “It’s great for the community.”

WA R R E N S B U R G — Dozens of enthusiastic runners and fitness buffs ran through the hamlet Saturday as they participated in the second annual Burgher Dash footrace. The event is held to raise money for the development of the Warrensburg Elementary School playground. Although the number of runners fell a little short of last year, event officials said that they were pleased with the turnout, considering another major event — the Prospect Mountain Road Race — was being held the same day. “We were happy with the numbers and the enthusiasm of the runners,” event organizer Anne Downes said. “And it didn’t rain.” She said that a lot of Warrensburg Central School alumni either competed or helped organize this year ’s race, which included a number of young elementary school students trotting over the 5k course through the town.

Warrensburg Chamber loses its top officers By Thom Randall
firstname.lastname@example.org WARRENSBURG — The local Chamber of Commerce is now seeking new members for its board of directors after the recent departure of five board members, including the agency’s two top officials. Cheryl Kenyon of Thurman, who served as the Chamber ’s president since January 2010, resigned from her post — and from the board — on May 5. Contacted Monday, Kenyon said she had resigned because of increased duties at the Adirondack Gold Maple Farm which she and her husband own and operate. “I just couldn’t keep up with all the Cham-
Whalen from page 1 In 1989, she founded Christmas in Warrensburgh, a weekend event early in December that includes a variety of holiday activities for all ages and musical performances. The event, now a treasured local tradition, draws hundreds annually to various venues and retail shops in town. In 1998, she launched the Warrensburg Riverfront Farmers’ Market, which has grown from one vendor selling vegetables off his tailgate to a weekly venue that includes 15 vendors of produce, flowers, organic meats, baked goods crafts and specialty goods.
ber work,” she said. “It was too much for me and I decided to resign.” The Warrensburg Chamber also recently lost its vice president — Karyn Ryan — who would ordinarily step into the vacant presidency, according to Chamber board member Sandi Parisi. Ryan, manager of the Warrensburg Branch of TD Banknorth, resigned from her Chamber posts May 5 because she had recently been transferred to head up the Lake George branch of the bank, Parisi said. That’s not all the resignations endured by the Warrensburg Chamber. Shawn Dempsey, general manager of Hickory Hill ski center, resigned from his position as Chamber board member in April
The market, which at times features acoustic music performances, is held in the Warrensburgh Mills Historic District Park, which she helped create with other members of Warrensburgh Beautification, including Kaena Loo. Neglected for decades as a townowned parcel, the Warrensburgh Mills Park now features a gazebo, parking areas, landscaping, rest room and utilities due to the tireless lobbying of Whalen and her associates. This wasn’t the only town park she and helped launch or upgrade. She and others from Warrensburgh Beautification Inc. worked on developing seven town parks along the Schroon River, and obtained state grants for four of them.
because his job duties include far more traveling than before, Parisi added. That’s in addition to the resignation in April of board member Todd Trulli of George Henry’s tavern in Warrensburg due to family and business responsibilities, Parisi said. These resignations followed the death in March of Board member Barry Nichinson of Wevertown, just months after he joined the board. Parisi said the chamber was not going to elect a new president or vice president until November, but the group was now seeking additional members for their board of directors, which includes their executive officers. The remaining board members are now scanning their membership directory, think-
Her work started with the development of the Cal Engle Park at the Warrensburg Health Center. Now a landscaped site with a memorial, a bench and trees, the park was once merely an asphalt lot. Through the years, she also has brainstormed and conducted various beautification efforts at town facilities. Last year, she and others worked on landscaping the town hall plot. Her most influential work, however, may be in historic preservation, observers have said. She led a lengthy, successful effort to have areas of town designated as historic districts on the National Registers of Historic Places, and on the state register as well. In addition, she has actively
ing about who they might recruit to join the panel, she said. In the meantime, the Warrensburg Chamber ’s 2011 events will be proceeding as planned, she said. Chamber board member Lynn Smith of AlLynn’s Butterfly Inn Bed & Breakfast, will be in charge of overseeing the World’s Largest Garage Sale event, set for early October. Smith, who for years served as the Chamber President, rejoined the agency in January after a one-year hiatus. The Chamber ’s Arts & Crafts Show, set for July, will also be conducted as planned, Parisi said. “It’s business as normal for the Chamber,” she said.
campaigned to protect and preserve area historic resources in town, and to retain local quality of life in the face of encroaching development. Her community involvement goes further. For 15 years, she’s served as chairwoman of the Warrensburg cancer crusade. Also, she’s devoted many hours to the development of two townwide master plans. In addition, she’s been an active member of the board of directors of Adirondack Harvest, which promotes sustainable agriculture in the Adirondacks. Parisi said Whalen’s devotion to Warrensburg was evident to all when in the early 2000s she moved to Schenectady for several years,
yet she commuted to Warrensburg often to continue her work for Warrensburg beautification, historic preservation, the holiday event and the farmers’ market. “This award is way overdue,” Parisi said. “I couldn’t be happier.” Reservations can be made for the Citizen of the Year dinner on June 17 by calling the Warrensburg Chamber of Commerce at 6232161. Seating is limited. Whalen said Monday she was surprised and pleased by the Citizen of the Year designation. “I am very honored,” she said, noting that she had recently reviewed the long list of community standouts who had received the award in the past. “I guess I now join very illustrious company.”

Construction workers install a hydrodynamic separator under state Rte. 9N, a catchbasin that removes silt and debris from stormwater before it flows into English Brook. As this waterway has exhibited high levels of pollutants and it flows into Lake George, the catchbasin installation is part of an effort of the Lake George Association to protect the lakewater quality and prevent sand deltas from encroaching further into the lake.

Group seeks local sustainability
New owners at local art gallery A grand opening and artisans reception are scheduled for 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, May 29 at the new Bolton Gallery & Arts Center. Owners Bob and Carol Kafin have opened up in the old Lakeshore Gallery space at 4985 Lakeshore Drive. The new enterprise is a retail shop that sells handcrafted items and features works by regional artisans. On display are jewelry, blown and fused glass, pottery and other ceramics, woodcarvings and accessories and wearable art. Bob Kafin is one of the original founders of the Lower Adirondack Regional Arts Council, and Carol was an owner of the former Crazy Quilt shop in Glens Falls. The Kafins have owned a condominium at The Sagamore since 1987. "We are very excited in being able to bring a new business to Bolton," Carol said. "We look forward to serving local residents and summer visitors by providing them with high quality, very nicely made items from artisans who work in their own workshops and studios. We also will be scheduling demonstrations and exhibitions where our customers can meet our artisans in person and see how they ply their crafts.” For more information visit www.boltongallery.com.
A local volunteer group named Transition Bolton Landing held their first public event May 6 at Bolton Landing’s Conservation Club. Twenty-five concerned citizens shared a pot luck dinner and watched “The Power of Community,” a documentary detailing Cuba’s transition to a lower energy lifestyle following the break-up of their energy supplier, the USSR, in 1990. The film focused on agricultural, transportation-related, and social changes that were made to slash Cuba's dependence on fossil fuels. An enthusiastic discussion followed the screening, with ideas shared that were applicable to the circumstances in northern Warren County. Some of the topics explored were establishing community gardens, a project now well underway and spearheaded by Jane Caldwell, and a farmers market — being researched and planned by Eva Bird and Cobber Pratt. Proposed were such initiatives as online community bulletin boards detailing ride-sharing, produce-swaps, and labor exchanges; as well as senior outreach efforts and boosting re-use and recycling opportunities. Transition Bolton Landing is a volunteer group concerned with local solutions to reduce energy use and build strong community bonds. Localizing necessities and economics is one way to ensure resilience in the face of fossil fuel uncertainties and ever increasing energy costs, according to Bill Campbell, one of the groups organizers. For details or to get involved, contact Campbell at 744-0341 or at: email@example.com

This decision has many people — including Saranac Lake Mayor Clyde Rabideau — up in arms, even suggesting that the move is related to the village’s plan to eliminate funding to the chamber gradually over the next three years. In this case, the Saranac Lake Area Chamber of Commerce is wrong. Yes, the word “Area” is in the title, but the emphasis is on “Saranac Lake.” The home page of its website says “Welcome to Saranac Lake.” Should it add, “But don’t come for dinner — Go to Lake Placid instead”? On the chamber ’s website, 21 of the 30 listings for “Restaurant, food and beverage members” have a Saranac Lake address. Two have a Lake Placid address, and one of those is McDonald’s. That’s two-thirds of the sites listed by the chamber. Were all 21 of them booked for June 8? The chamber defends its decision. Argument No. 1: Chamber officials have said Lake Placid is okay because the dinner has been held outside of Saranac Lake in the past, using Hohmeyer's Lodge on Lake Clear as an example. However, Hohmeyer ’s is in the Saranac Lake area, not in the middle of the village of Lake Placid. Argument No. 2: Chamber officials have said Lake Placid is okay because the Golden Arrow Lakeside Resort is a member. Using this logic, why not have the dinner at another member business, the Akwesasne Mohawk Casino? That probably has the most to offer chamber members and has about as much to do with the Saranac Lake brand as the village of Lake Placid. Get the point? It’s perception. Hohmeyer ’s is “perceived” as a Saranac Lake area business. The Golden Arrow is perceived as a Lake Placid business, and, despite hosting a Saranac Lake Area Chamber of Commerce annual dinner
there, it will not be viewed any other way. Also, while the chamber will not admit to it, the perception is that this move has everything to do with their recent clashes with the village. It’s the whole “looks like a duck ...” theory. Even if the chamber ’s intentions are pure, recent events suggest otherwise. This is not a move we would expect from a chamber of commerce that is run by some of the area’s top professionals, including the board of directors. This is a move that wreaks of bitterness and anger toward the village and, in part, the nonmember businesses within the village. In terms of the venom between the chamber and the village, neither is innocent. Saranac Lake Village Board members should think long and hard about any decision that takes funds away from an organization that promotes the municipality. In fact, the village of Saranac Lake, out of any of the other funding entities, should be the one that contributes the most to the Saranac Lake Area Chamber of Commerce. We don’t buy the “double taxation” excuse offered by the village board, even though they’ve targeted other organizations. It’s perception. Eliminating the chamber ’s funding seems just as mean spirited as moving the chamber ’s annual meeting to Lake Placid. And now the mayor has created his own chamber-like program to promote local businesses, Saranac Lake Inc. These two entities should be able to work together to promote the village and region and realize that the Saranac Lake area does not include the heart of Lake Placid. Both sides need to come to the table, sit down, and do the right thing for the businesses and residents of Saranac Lake — we can recommend 21 restaurants. For now, we’ll settle for one step in the right direction; return the annual dinner to the Saranac Lake area.

Mercury causing Alzheimer’s To the Adirondack Journal: The guest viewpoint printed recently in the Adirondack Journal and authored by the Adirondack Mountain Club contains a claim about mercury pollution that is not realistic. The group claims that the cumulative amount of existing mercury pollution will be greatly changed by reducing the emissions from the nation’s coal-fired power plants. But coal has been used for many decades in cement plants, large ships, older trains, and to heat buildings. For many years, these uses have included no pollution controls. The environmental damage has been done a long time ago and may take decades for a significant change. Mercury pollution slowly migrates into the oceans. Mercury is a basic element and does not decompose, but it migrates through seafood or fish used for food for humans or animals. The recently proposed standards for reduction of power plant emissions is a step in the right direction. The air pollution of other nations circulates around the planet and will also come here. Overall, the reduction from the U.S. coal-fired utility plants will not make much of a worldwide change. The Ravena, NY cement plant has recently been in the news. It has a permit to release into the air no more than 176 pounds of mercury per year. It is esti-
mated that one-quarter of this plant’s mercury pollution comes from their coal. Tests have shown that other cement plants to release higher amounts of mercury pollution into the air. It is my opinion, based on many news releases and reports, that a long low-level mercury poisoning is the cause of Alzheimer ’s disease. This is explained further at www.gvernmentscams.blogspot.com. Included in this information are steps that individuals can take to prevent Alzheimer ’s by reducing their own mercury poisoning. Robert Greene Warrensburg
Need objective evaluations To the Adirondack Journal: Educational initiatives call for keeping the good teachers and laying off the weaker ones regardless of how long they’ve been teaching. Now, the big questions arise —who is going to determine who are the good teachers? What criteria will be used to make these decisions? Will these decisions be based on personal conflicts, politics, nepotism, etc.? Will old “Mrs. X” be let go because she had the temerity to reprimand an offspring of an influential board member? In view of the sliding economy, will those in power be tempted to lay off a teacher who has served many years, in
favor of hiring a replacement at the low end of the salary scale? Evaluation, merit pay and tenure are really not new topics of concern. Boards of education and teachers unions have struggled with these topics for years. At one time, the New York State Teachers Association proposed a Professional Practices Act to give a professional status to the teaching profession, in which they would police their own ranks in a manner similar to the legal and medical professions. At another time, there was a call for a system of merit pay to compensate the most competent teachers. Unfortunately, no one could come up with a satisfactory, foolproof system of evaluation. There may still be a few old-timers out there who remember in the dark days of the depression years that some districts went so far as to lay off female teachers who were married since their husbands already had jobs. Do we really want to see “shooting from the hip” attempts to solve our present problems? Today’s challenge is to come up with methods to impartially evaluate teachers and administrators. If and when this is accomplished, we would then be in a position to terminate the non-performers. Robert Savarie Olmstedville

•100 Years Ago – May, 1911• Bloody cure for melancholy Driven to desperation by extreme nervousness and suffering from melancholy induced by a long period of ill health, Mrs. John A. Manning of Brooklyn attempted to commit suicide May 31, 1911 in her room at the Warren House in Warrensburgh by cutting her throat with her husband’s razor. She succeeded in making an ugly wound in the left side of her throat when her husband was awakened by her movements and wrested the keen-edged weapon from her grasp. Dr. Griffin was summoned and sewed up the gash which was about three inches long but not deep. Mr. Manning stated that his wife underwent a serious operation in a New York hospital about five years ago and has since been in poor health. She resolved to seek health among the mountains here and about a month ago she came to stay at Henry Cameron’s boarding house in Thurman. She failed to improve and telegraphed her husband to join her and he came at once to Glens Falls and than made the trip to Warrensburgh on the trolley. They decided to stay for a few days at the Warren House where she appeared to improve. Mrs. Manning could give no explanation for her actions except to say she was temporarily insane. (Note: The Warren House hotel stood on the lot just south of the former Potter ’s Diner.)
Man wracked with sorrow The Rev. Thomas O. Grieves, pastor of the First Baptist Church of Greenwich and well known in the Warrensburgh locality, ran down with his automobile 8-year-old Mary Maginn Saturday night May 13, 1911 and inflicted injuries which resulted in her death at the hospital later that night. The incident occurred in Saratoga Springs. Pastor Grieves’ automobile is a powerful touring car.
Rev. Grieves was running up Broadway about 9 o’clock p.m. and made a sharp turn into a side street driving his machine directly into the throngs of people passing along the crosswalk. The child was walking with her mother who was struck first and thrown to one side and badly shaken up. The automobile passed over the little girl fracturing her skull and jaw. The clergyman carried the little victim to the hospital in his automobile and than drove to police headquarters where he gave himself up. He was arraigned before Justice Andrus on a charge of manslaughter in the second degree. He pleaded not guilty and was released on a bail of $5,000 to await the grand jury which will meet May 22, 1911. (Note: Rev. Grieves was grief-stricken and so upset after the accident that he vowed he would sell everything he owned and turn the entire proceeds over to the bereaved parents of little Mary Maginn in an effort to comfort them. He sold his automobile, which he refused to ever ride in again after the accident and he placed on the market a cottage on the campgrounds at Riverside which he owned. He steadfastly maintained that the accident was not the result of his alleged carelessness. No indictment was made by the Grand Jury and the child’s parents stated that they had no desire to press charges.)
Earthmoving project For a considerable number of years a frequent subject for argument in uptown Warrensburgh sitting places where men congregate has been whether or not it would be a wise plan to cut off the top of the hill which extends from the News office to the residence of Postmaster Robert Murray on Elm Street and deposit the dirt on School Street in front of the high school building where it would effect a great improvement by raising the level of the street above the pond of water which accumulates there in extremely wet weather such as we have not had with-
in the memory of older inhabitants in their teens. The “No’s” were beaten but not conquered, for they still insist that the project calls for an outlay of the town’s highway funds which could be used in many other more favorable ways. The powers that be have instructed George Washington Farrar, Town Superintendent of Highways, to go ahead with the work and the improvement is under way. (Note: the Warrensburgh News office in 1911 was on Elm Street, south of the bandstand. Apparently the mound of dirt was moved, considering that the area now exhibits merely a gentle slope. School St. is today called Stewart Farrar Avenue.)
Buried treasure While fighting a fire on the Warrensburgh fairgrounds recently, Fred Hayes was turning up the turf near the base of a tree and brought to light a hammer, saw and doublebit axe, the handles of which were entirely rotted away. They had evidently been secreted there at least 25 years ago, but by whom is a mystery.
Adirondack bear tales Arthur Brailly of Newcomb, while fishing at Chain Lakes, captured a big bear. He caught some fish and laid them on the bank and when he went to get them they were gone. Bear tracks, which could be plainly seen, gave him a clue to the identity of the thief. The next day he set up a trap and placed some more fish near it and in a short time Mr. Bruin was his prisoner and Mr. Brailly found him crying pitifully over his plight.
News near and far • The state Senate has passed the Sullivan bill which prohibits the possession of revolvers in the hands of unauthorized persons. It makes it a felony to have a weapon of this kind in one’s possession and a misdemeanor to have one in the house without a permit.

Who wouldn’t be willing to trade $29 for $1,000 if we are talking real money savings on products people buy everyday? Maybe $4 off Zyrtec, $3 off a 12-piece meal at KFC, $1 off Energizer Batteries, or 50 cents off granola bars or yogurt. In getting manufacturers to reduce the funds people are likely to spend anyway, we free up those dollars to be spent elsewhere in our local economy while helping local families stretch their budgets. The program works simply like this ... When you purchase a voluntary subscription to one of our free papers for $29, you’ll be enrolled in this exclusive online program. Every time you log in the membership, it allows you to select up $20 worth of locally redeemable coupons from hundreds of coupons listed in 21 categories, on items you want to buy. You can log in up to five times within a 30day period and select $1,000 total within the year ’s membership.

• Alfred Bornefeld, a Saratoga Springs jeweler, found $140 in bills neatly tucked away in a corner of a mattress which he purchased at an auction sale at the dismantling of Canfield’s famous gambling house in that place. It was surmised that the money was placed there in the mattress many years ago by one of the dealers in the clubhouse. • In other Saratoga news, “Maude S.,” the famous trotter owned by the late George S. Stearns, was shot to death as provided for in Stearns’ will. She was 35 years old and blind. • A large pavilion at Glen Lake owned by Frank Greenburger of Glens Falls burned May 23, 1911. The fire was discovered about 8:30 p.m. and raged so fiercely that the building was reduced to ashes in about an hour. Only the piano was saved and the origin of the blaze is unknown. • Another Glen Lake hotel property, part of which was destroyed by fire last winter, has been purchased by M.J. Dolan Jr., and Sterling F. Higley of Glens Falls who will make necessary improvements to reopen the hotel by June 1, 1911.
News roundabout • The third week of May was hot, hot, hot — and many people pined for the comfort of the good old wintertime. The thermometer registered 90 degrees. It is said that the sweet corn planted a week ago is now two inches high. • In Johnsburgh, Mrs. Louisa Ross is ill with rheumatism and Mrs. Abram Ross has the measles. Mrs. George Ross has them also. George Greene has been very ill with pneumonia. • In Bakers Mills, Ellis Dunkley is ill with paralysis. The children of John and William Millington are ill with the measles. In Garnet, the two-months old son of Fred Washburn was found dead in bed on May 5, 1911 and Dr. Brush pronounced the cause to be heart failure. • In North Thurman, Wilbur Barton lost his black mare and suckling colt valued at $200. The colt was found dead on the barn floor and the mare died soon after.

And remember, these are real manufacturers’ coupons that will never be rejected and always doubled at stores that provide that service. Now, I know I sound a bit like Ron Popeil, but this program makes sense, puts dollars back into our local economy and assists us in delivering your community newspaper to your mailbox each week. Coupons may not be for everyone, but given the current state of the economy and the prospects for at least the next few years, I have to believe many could find the program very helpful. Ingenuity, as they say, is the mother of invention. So as our homegrown North Country company works hard to keep bringing you relevant news, we hope this program will allow us to produce a better product for you, the consumer. Furthermore, we hope to be better positioned to meet our mission of community service while continuing to support our local economy.

WOL to celebrate Memorial Day Controversial figure speaking
By Jon Hochschartner email@example.com
POTTERSVILLE — Word of Life (WOL) will be hosting a Memorial Day celebration May 30 featuring Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Jerry Boykin, former United States Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence, and Sgt. Gary B. Beikirch, a recipient of the Medal of Honor. More than 1,200 people are expected to attend. Paul Bubar, assistant to the director of WOL, said the organization had made a “big thing” of Memorial Day for years. “It’s going to be a real foot-stomping, flag-waving, red-white-and-blue hoorah,” Bubar said. “It will be about God and country.” Boykin is a controversial figure, who has painted the War on Terror in Biblical terms, and was ultimately fired from his job in the Bush administration for saying of a Muslim warlord, “I knew that my God was bigger than his. I knew that my God was a real God and his was an idol.” Since then, he’s said Obama’s healthcare law lays the groundwork for an organization which he compared to that of the Nazi brownshirts, “a constabulary force that will control the population in America.” Bubar said he was unsure what
Sgt. Gary B. Beikirch
Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Jerry Boykin
Boykin would be discussing, but he guessed Boykin would be talking about his military history, including his role as a founding member of Delta Force, and the recent killing of Osama bin Laden. “We didn’t bring (Boykin) in because he was controversial,” Bubar said. “We brought him in because he was an American hero.” Beikirch received the Medal of Honor for his actions in the Vietnam war. His citation states that while defending Camp Dak Seang, he risked his life providing medical assistance to his fellow soldiers and moved them to safety. He continued to do so until he collapsed from injuries of his own. Bubar said Beikirch is allotted about
10 minutes in the program, during which time he’s expected to recap his story. Boykin will have his book, “Never Surrender: A Soldier ’s Journey to the Crossroads of Faith and Freedom,” on sale and will be available for book signings following the event. “Memorial Day and the Fourth of July are two great celebratory holidays in America,” Bubar said. “It’s a time to show our patriotism and love for our country and our love for God. Because God gave us our great country and the freedom we enjoy.” Admission is free, and the public is invited. For more information, call (518) 494-6000.
Paterson addresses Paul Smith’s grads By Chris Morris
PAUL SMITHS — Former New York Gov. David Paterson was in the Adirondacks over the weekend, where he addressed graduates of Paul Smith’s College on May 15. Speaking along the shores of Lower St. Regis Lake, Paterson told graduates to take chances and stick to their convictions. “Throughout the centuries there have been men and women who took first steps down new roads armed with nothing but they’re own vision,” he said. “The great leaders, the thinkers, the artists, the scientists, the inventors — stood alone against the societies of their time. Every new thought was opposed, every new invention was denounced. But these people who had an unbarred vision went ahead – they fought, the suffered, and the paid, but they won.” Paterson, who rose to New York’s highest office after the resignation of Eliot Spitzer, broke into politics in 1985 when he was
elected as a state Senator representing Harlem. At 31, he was the youngest lawmaker in Albany at the time and eventually took the helm as Senate Minority Leader. Sunday’s speech had all the makings of a classic commencement address — Paterson aimed to inspire, amuse, and educate. But he was also careful to temper the enthusiasm with advice for a group of young adults preparing to enter a tough economy. “This is a very difficult time and you will endure a lot of hardships that your predecessors and that’s why it is so important that your family, your friends, those who taught you, those who came to observe today, that we all let it be known that we are behind you,” Paterson said. “Because we’re looking to you to reverse some of the poor judgment that put us in this position now.” In all, 245 students received their degree during Sunday’s ceremony, the 64th commencement for Paul Smith’s College.
DEC partnerships getting stronger, but work still remains By Chris Morris
firstname.lastname@example.org As Albany tightens its belt, the state Department of Environmental Conservation has faced some of the deepest cuts, losing key staff and dollars that funded things like campgrounds and hatcheries. State officials say partnerships with environmental groups and local governments are helping to ease the crunch. But as some critics note, those partnerships can't erase the need for more dollars. Betsy Lowe is director of DEC Region 5, headquartered in Ray Brook. She said the environmental agency is stretched-thin financially, after deep cuts at the hands of former Gov. David Paterson and current Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Speaking during a partnership recognition ceremony last month, Lowe said energetic volunteer organizations and savvy municipal leadership have made up for some of those shortfalls. "These partnerships that we have help us meet our objectives in many different ways, especially with the state economy the way it is and us having to do more and more with very limited resources," she said. "We have to be creative on a daily basis when it comes to accomplishing all that we need to do to take care of what makes our area so special." Forest Ranger Captain John Streiff points to volunteer search and rescue groups that contribute critical boots on the ground. "The search and rescue community is so well organized – and the rangers can't do it alone," he said. "They're not being paid
and they're using their own mileage, but they're out there for us. They are a good, educated group of people who help us find lost and missing persons so we can rescue them." Some of the partnerships touted by DEC are still a little awkward. At the ceremony last month, Lowe honored Indian Lake Supervisor Barry Hutchins, who worked with the DEC to reopen roads along the Moose River Plains Wild Forest. The 83,000-acre area is immensely popular among campers, anglers, and hunters, and it nearly closed last year due to the state's fiscal crisis. The effort was successful, but Hutchins said there was plenty of controversy as municipalities, green groups, and regulatory agencies were forced to sit at the same table. "As everybody knows, DEC, as a regulatory agency, isn't always looked at very fondly and the trust isn't always there," he said. Hutchins said hard times are forcing state and local agencies to work together and he says he hopes more trust will follow. "I want to make sure that people know that we aren't a family yet – we're still working on it," he said. "But we are acting like a family, because when times get tough, families naturally draw together. Times are tough, so we need to continue to work in that vein. Not necessarily become a family, because as you look around, there's a few people that, if you could choose your family, you wouldn't want them in there." But critics say these partnerships aren't
enough. They want the Cuomo administration to use the state Conservation fund to pay for more DEC programs and stewardship. Jason Kemper is chairman of the Conservation Fund Advisory Board. He says sportsmen and sportswomen agreed to modest fee increases for licenses several years ago as a means to combat reduced services – but it hasn't happened. "At the same time, the state economy collapsed and the governor started putting restrictions on spending," he said. "We were sort of caught under this general state umbrella where we couldn't fill positions, we couldn't allow travel, we couldn't allow overtime – and yet we're one of the only interest groups that pays our own way. We put all this money in the banks, paid for our services a year ahead of time, but still got caught under this big state umbrella." Kemper says the fund – which is financed through hunting, trapping, and fishing license fees – now totals about $20 million. But the state Division of Budget won't release it for use on stewardship programs. "We have 11 vacant hatchery positions right now, we didn't take eggs in Raquette Lake last fall – there are a lot of things out there that we could be doing if DOB would allocate that money to DEC," he said. In a letter sent April 26, North Country Assembly members Janet Duprey and Teresa Sayward asked the Cuomo administration for an explanation of what they described as the "misuse" of conservation funds.

Regional Roundup - Adirondack Journal - 9
News of the Week
Grishkot was dedicated to bringing joy to others
any citizens of the region were touched with a deep sense of sadness and nostalgia this week following the death Wednesday, May 11 of Walter Grishkot, 85, the co-founder of the Adirondack Balloon Festival, now in its 39th year. While he was best known for his tireless promotion of the festival, he also served as a photographer and publicist for Warren County Tourism Department in the 1970s. He also was a contributor of photographs to news wire services. He was also a savvy promoter, whether it was arranging a golf driving contest on the frozen surface of Lake George — recorded by Ripley’s Believe It or Not — or helping publicize the National Christmas Tree grown here in Warren County and transported to Washington, D.C. The Adirondack Balloon Festival, however, is what he’ll always be remembered for. It was in 1982 — the year I arrived in
Warrensburg to report and edit local news — that I first met Walt. I was at my sitting behind my desk in the Warrensburg-Lake George News office which was where Jack Toney’s Sunoco gas station now is located. I was furiously stabbing my typewriter keys, writing a story to meet a looming deadline. Grishkot burst through the door carrying a big gold trunk, and he threw the lid open, pulled out balloon-festival props, posters and photos, and began a lengthy, feverish promotional pitch. While I only had minutes to finish the story I couldn’t resist his vibrant, visceral enthusiasm. Also, I just couldn’t get a word in edgewise to tell him I was under tremendous pressure to finish up the week’s issue.
Year after year since then, I’ve experienced his incredible passion for the balloon festival, and every new event or feature connected with it. I also saw him at various festivals, happy that people of all ages, particularly children, were entranced by the huge balloons with their myriad colors, the spectacle of their inflation and silent flight. By Thom Randall His boundless enthusiasm was based, I believe, in his drive to bring joy to others, to help them fully experience the many wonders of life. We’ll all miss him a lot, and we all have fond memories — and may the balloon festival continue to prosper as a memorial to his character and spirit.

Paddlefest returns to Old Forge Scheduled May 20-22
By Jon Hochschartner email@example.com
WEBB — The 13th annual Adirondack Paddlefest will be held at Route 28 on May 20-22. Hosted by the local Mountainman Outdoor Supply Company, the event is expected to draw thousands of people. Admission is $5 per day with children 12 and under free. “It’s now one of the biggest on-water canoe and kayak expos in the country,” said Bill Reynolds, marketing director of MOSC. Attendees will be given the chance to try out more than 20 brands, which include hundreds of models, of boats at the event, Reynolds said. There will be a number of free educational activities, including lectures and paddling demonstrations. Additionally there will be classes that will require a small entrance fee. Prior to the creation of the event, individual boat companies would pick separate days to demo their products,
Reynolds said. The founder of MOSC, John Nemjo, had the idea of scheduling them all in one weekend. So Adirondack Paddlefest was born. Mike Farmer, the tourism director in the town of Webb, said there was a 60 to 70 percent occupancy rate in local lodging the weekend of the event. “We don’t fill the town, but we almost fill it,” Farmer said. He estimated Adirondack Paddlefest attracts 3,000 to 3,500 people. Farmer partially attributed its success to a lack of competing events. “It’s a kick-off for summer before everything gets into full swing,” Farmer said. Reynolds said regional flooding would have no effect on the event. Classes include Tandem Canoe Paddling, Basic Kayak Strokes, Kid’s Kayak, Intro to Whitewater Kayaking, Women’s Approach to Paddling, Understanding Boat Control, Paddle Making Class. All classes cost $20, except for Kid’s Kayak, which costs $15, and Paddle Making, which costs $100. For a full list of times, please visit http://www.mountainmanoutdoors.com.
Man videotaped women in restroom By Chris Morris
firstname.lastname@example.org ELIZABETHTOWN — An Essex County man faces a felony charge after police learned that he was videotaping a woman in a restroom. Lewis-based state police arrested 25year-old Daniel T. LaMere Jr. of Elizabethtown on May 8 and charged him with unlawful surveillance, a class-E felony. According to police, an investigation was launched after a woman filed a complaint Daniel T. claiming that someone was videotaping her LaMere Jr. in the restroom at the High Peaks Rest Area, located in the Essex County town of North Hudson off Interstate-87, the Adirondack Northway. The investigation led to LaMere’s arrest. Police say he was working as an employee of a company contracted by the state to maintain the High Peaks Rest Area. LaMere was ticketed and released to appear in North Hudson Town Court on May 17. Meanwhile, the New York State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation, in conjunction with the New York State Police Computer Crimes Unit, is continuing its investigation into the incident. Officials encourage anyone with information about such unlawful surveillance to contact police at 873-2750. Troopers say the preliminary investigation has revealed that a number of similar incidents have occurred between midJanuary and May 8. Additional charges against LaMere are pending as the investigation continues.

School budgets from page 1 The $20.5 million in proposed expenditures represented a 2.63 percent increase in spending over the 2010-11 year. In recently published letters to the editor and a flyer circulated throughout the town before the vote, this increase was criticized in light of the school’s falling enrollment. The Lake George Central School Board now must decide whether to put another proposal before the voters or adopt a contingency budget. Efforts to reach Lake George School officials were unsuccessful Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. In the Warrensburg School District, the 2011-12 budget passed by a vote of 379 to 327, with a proposition to create a capital reserve fund of $600,000 for school facility repairs passing 389 to 194. The 2011-2012 budget calls for total spending of $19 million and $7,987,307 to be raised by taxes, which
is an increase of $150,896 over last year — despite a decrease in total expenditures of nearly $500,000. Minutes after the tally, WCS Superintendent Tim Lawson was all smiles about the results which concluded a protracted budget-crafting process that started last year. “We’re thankful for those who turned out in support of the budget and proposition,” he said. “This vote enables us to maintain the curriculum and programs that we’ve come to expect.” In Tuesday’s vote, Incumbent school board member Linda Baker Marcella, known for her budget-trimming tendencies, defeated challenger Terri Leguire by a vote of 418 to 300. “My goal now is to get everyone together in the community and decide what we want to do with the issues now facing the school,” she said, after sharing greetings with Leguire following the vote. In Bolton, the vote was 220 to 91 in favor of the 2011-12 budget that calls for $8,367,260 in appropriations, an in-
crease of $33,138, or 0.4 percent. The proposed spending plan increases the tax levy by 0.32 percent. Bolton Central Superintendent Ray Ciccarelli was also happy with the vote results. “We’re very pleased the community continues to support our school,” he said. “During these challenging times, we're happy the budget was supported in such a positive way — with over 70 percent voting for it.” In the North Warren School District, the vote was 317 to 148 in favor of the budget that calls for spending $1,383,967 — a decrease of 1.13 percent over the prior year, and an anticipated tax levy increase of 2.27 percent. North warren Superintendent of Schools Joseph Murphy said he and the board were pleased with the vote of support. “On behalf of the staff and students of North Warren, we appreciate the support for continuing the academic and extracurricular programs for all children of the district,” he said.
GLENS FALLS — This year, the Lake George Community Band will offer two performances of its annual Armed Forces Day Concert, scheduled for this weekend at the Charles Wood Theater, 207 Glen St. The first performance is set for Saturday, May 21 at 8 p.m., followed by a matinee concert Sunday, May 22 at 2:30 p.m. Band officials decided to add a matinee performance this year due to sold-out performances in prior years. Entitled “An American Portrait,” the concert observes of the nation’s 150th year anniversary of the U.S. Civil War, as it also pays tribute to all members of the U.S. military through the years. Band publicist Dale Perry said the concert honors the past and present achievements of members of the armed forces, particularly local service men and women. The salute, which includes those serving in reserve forces, is a way of recognizing the personal sacrifices they made to defend the U.S. and maintain international security, he said. Veterans are encouraged to attend the concert — which provides an opportunity for area citizens to express their gratitude, Perry said. The band is conducted by Raymond E. Durkee. The concert features a variety of patriotic and contemporary music including Copeland's “Lincoln Portrait,” and Lowden’s “Armed Forces Salute.” The Lake George Community Band, which features 60 members, is sponsored in part by the Charles R. Wood Foundation, and the village and town of Lake George. For details, see: www.lakegeorgecommunityband.com The band performs regularly on Thursday nights during the summer in Lake George Village’s Shepard Park. It hosts a Community Band Festival in mid-July each year featuring community bands from the northeastern U.S. and Canada. Tickets for all seats for the Armed Forces Day Concert are $12 and are available online at www.woodtheater.org, at the theater box office or by calling 874-0800.

Girlfriends Getaway, with doubled attendance, prompts rave reviews By Michelle Maskaly Special to the Journal
BOLTON LANDING — It was three days of inspiration, adventure and friendship for the almost 200 women who attended the Girlfriends Getaway this weekend. The event, sponsored by the Bolton Landing Chamber of Commerce, was held Friday, May 13 through Sunday, May 15 at The Sagamore Resort. The attendance was about double the number at last year ’s debut edition. Keynote speakers Marcie Frasier, of YNN News, and Benita Zahn, of WNYT News Channel 13, both delivered powerful talks on the importance of listening to one’s inner strength and the need to take care of yourself not just physically, but also mentally and emotionally. “How long do we hang onto things that don't nurture us, or feed us?” Zahn asked. "Every morning take a little look — What's in your heart that's not allowing you to bring something else or someone else in?” For the second year since
it was founded, the event drew women of all ages and backgrounds from across the Northeast to Bolton, where they could participate in a variety of fitness classes, like Zumba, and learn how to tap into their inner voice with workshops like meditation. But it wasn’t all a matter of attending serious seminars. The women had plenty of time just to relax and take a little time to have fun with their friends, as well as meet new ones. Many were treated to makeovers during cocktail hour — and then Saturday, they enjoyed a fashion show featuring some of the most popular women's, men's and children's outfits to be seen this summer. Each night local restaurants were filled with attendees taking advantage of the special meals offered. Many of the women stayed well into the night talking, sharing laughs and listening to live music. Girlfriends Getaway organizer Wauneata Waller said she was pleased with this year's event and the
positive energy the women brought to the town even when Mother Nature threw them a “curve ball” of intermittent rain. She said she heard plenty of rave reviews and feedback about the presenters, the workshops, the luncheon, the fashion show and no one complained about the weather. "My real reward came when I visited the downtown businesses Saturday evening and I kept running into our ‘girlfriends’ while they were shopping, dining and taking photos,” she said. “They had smiles on their faces the entire weekend.” Waller credited the event’s success to the participation of local businesses and individuals — in the fashion show, by donating coupons and items for the welcome bags, extending business hours, offering refreshments, and providing services like kayaking, paddleboarding and hiking. “This is a real community effort,” she said. Michelle Maskaly is a multimedia journalist and social media freelancer.
Attendees at the Girlfriends Getaway held this weekend at The Sagamore Resort in Bolton enjoyed socializing with friends and making new ones as well as attending wellness, health and lifestyle workshops and taking in a fashion show. Attendance at the event was about 200, approximately double last year’s number. Photo provided

Town plan: Housing, hamlet upgrades
Berry Pond Tract
By Paul Gilchrist
The Conservancy borrowed money from the Open Space institute for the purchase. Because the state has since balked on buying the land, the Conservancy is now short of money to repay the loan, which is coming due in January, village officials said. Recently, Nancy Williams of the Lake George Land Conservancy told Lake George municipal officials in a letter that the faltering economy had apparently delayed the state’s purchase. The Berry Pond tract sprawls over forested upland portions of the towns of Warrensburg and Lake Luzerne, as well as Lake George. The Town of Lake George, at a special meeting several weeks ago, approved a similar resolution supporting the DEC’s timely purchase of the Berry Pond tract. In other actions Monday, the Lake George Village Board: • Authorized Mayor Robert Blais to sign a contract with Clark Patterson Lee engineering firm to oversee the West Brook Conservation park development. Blais noted that former Warren County Public Works Superintendent Bill Lamy of Warrensburg had been hired by the firm to oversee the project on behalf of the village and county. • Approved a $449,863 contract with Elan Planning of Saratoga Springs to design the West Brook park, oversee public hearings on the initiative, and draft bid specifications for the project. The contract with Elan and Clark Patterson Lee is contingent on state funding of $2.5 million coming through as expected. • Approved hiring Elan Planning to design the West Brook Park’s 2.5-acre festival space in the West Brook park — a project of Lake George Village and the county — at an expense of $13,500. The village’s share of this sum is $5,130.
Special to the Adirondack Journal WA R R E N S B U R G — A n outline for the future of the Town of Warrensburg has been drafted and about 35 people attended its recent public debut on May 16. Warrensburg’s new proposed comprehensive plan was unveiled in a meeting held at the Warrensburg Elementary School. A local committee appointed by the town and facilitated for over a year by Élan Planning and Design, a firm from Saratoga Springs, has prepared a 50-page document outlining the vision, goals, and recommendations proposed to update the town’s previous master plan completed in 1987. Concerns addressed by the plan including economic development balancing year-round business and tourism, Main Street revitalization, waterfront enhancement, open space and environment, affordable housing, infrastructure and governance, recreation, and cultural improvement of the hamlet. A sampling of recommendations from the draft plan includes expanding broadband access, promoting home businesses, establishing both an economic development committee and a conservation advisory council, creating an historic preservation board, regulating architectural design, exploring alternative energy production, and supporting the library’s operations. Comments and questions from the audience were entertained. One resident noted the need to consider planning in the context of Adirondack Park Agency rules so as to reduce complications for new projects. Another remarked that there are many diseased and dead trees on properties around town that should be removed to prevent spread of infection to other trees. The plan expresses increased municipal support for Richards Library. A letter in response from library officials circulated monday cited that boosted support for its expenses will enable the library to both to increase its services and complete the expansion of its facilities for the community. Disappointment was expressed by some in the audience that members of the Town Board did not attend the meeting. Town resident Ruth Fruda commented that the town needs to expand its tax base, but needs to preserve and enhance its heritage. She said that in pursuing this objective, the town needs to balance smart development with maintaining historic buildings, particularly along Main St. She noted that many people seek to reside in towns that have a rich historic character, and with thousands of well-paid workers and professionals expected to be employed soon at Global Foundries in Malta — just 40 minutes or so away from Warrensburg — the town leaders should be marketing Warrensburg’s attributes. She observed that her son Richard and several friends commute daily to Albany, and many others would do so if they knew

about Warrensburg’s ambiance. “We need to market Warrensburg as a great place to live — we have wonderful natural resources. so much to offer, particularly y families, considering our recreation and outstanding schools,” she said. She added that the town needs middle-income housing, both for families and seniors. The array of stores and services available here
downtown within walking distance, is particularly appealing to seniors, she said. Committee member Steve Parisi said Tuesday that housing needs both development and improvement in the core hamlet to make the town center more vital. “It’s of primary interest to expand the tax base to lower all residents’ share of the taxes, and make it more desirable to move into town,” he said.

The Comprehensive Plan committee will meet May 31 to make further revisions. After that the next step is to evaluate zoning regulations, which should conform to the plan.

‘Lake Steward’ program to boost efforts LAKE GEORGE — A program conducted on Lake George which curbs the spread of nuisance plants and creatures will significantly expand over last year ’s level, thanks to new funding. Trained student “Lake Stewards,” posted at several Lake George boat launches throughout the summer, inspect incoming boats for invasive species, remove suspicious specimens, and educate boaters about the threats of such plants and animals and how to prevent their spread. The Commission’s marine patrol is contacted whenever stewards encounter a boat being launched that has obvious signs of invasive species and its pilot refuses inspection. Since 2008, the Lake George Association has managed training, supervision and reporting for the Lake Steward Program. The additional funding of $35,000 provided this year by the Lake George Park Commission bankrolls maximum coverage for peak periods and for the launches that receive the highest traffic. The estimated program costs for 2011 are $67,000, and $25,000 will be funded through the Lake Champlain Basin program and the LGA providing the remainder from its Helen V. Froehlich Foundation grant awards.
In 2010, Lake stewards were posted at four launches around Lake George: Norowal Marina, Mossy Point, Hague Town Beach and Rogers Rock. In 2011, two additional launches will be added. Days and hours of coverage will also increase; the goal is to provide seven days per week coverage during the busiest times of the season, LGA official Emily DeBolt said. Twelve hour per day coverage is the goal for Mossy Point and Norowal, while other sites will receive eight hours per day. Mossy Point and Norowal were chosen for increased coverage due to the high volume of their traffic. “The Lake George Lake Steward Program is critical to protecting the water quality of Lake George,” said Bruce Young, chair of the Lake George Park Commission. LGA’s Lake Steward program supervisor Emily DeBolt said that while dozens of different aquatic invasive species reside nearby, only four are now found in Lake George. “We aim to keep it that way,” she said. In addition to inspection, lake stewards collect extensive data about lake users and invasive species spread. This information sheds light on the pathways of invasive species, and helps to
identify target areas for early detection and control, she said. A report for the public is prepared annually. The program is closely coordinated with similar programs. Lake George, Lake Champlain, and the Adirondack Watershed Institute collaborate on training, printed materials, and data collection as members of a regional partnership, the Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program. In 2010, local Lake Stewards inspected 2,538 boats, and educated boaters about the threats of Eurasian watermilfoil, zebra mussels, curly-leaf pondweed, and the Lake’s most recent invader, the Asian clam. Thirty-six samples of Eurasian watermilfoil were removed during the season. Nine samples of curly-leaf pondweed were found, three samples of zebra mussels, and five of water chestnut, an invasive that is not currently found in Lake George. The 2010 Lake Steward Program was funded by the Bolton Local Development Corp., the towns of Hague and Ticonderoga, the Lake George Park Commission, the Helen V. Froehlich Foundation, and the state Department of State. The program was conceived by the Invasive Species Task Force of the Lake George Watershed Coalition.
Thurman sale from page 1 The 60 registered sellers in Thurman were joined by dozens of others throughout town, she continued. The wide variety of goods offered at the various sale sites included a Victorian commode, wooden Radio Flyer wagons, jewelry, garden seedlings and perennials, vintage Tupperware, NASCAR items, camping gear, boats, tractors, and trucks as well as the routine yard sale items. One resident even had a For Sale sign on a small pony, Granger said. “There were miles of smiles and bags of bargains,” she said. Driving over Thurman’s winding roads offered opportunities to discover town residents eager to delve into conversations with browsers, she said. Family antiques and collectibles were likely to spark tales about the town’s rich history or experiences growing up in the lower Adirondacks, Granger said. One of those friendly residents was Ruth Near on
Dartmouth Road. She sat at her family home with Mary Cranker at her side, greeting people and tossing out gems of philosophy as the two sold linens, glassware, scenic photography, household goods and handmade items including catnip toys. “Ruth is one of Thurman’s official ambassadors,” Granger said. “People come back here every year just to see Ruth and Mary.” Over the sale weekend, Realtors hosted many open houses, a new feature of the event. Most of those cruising through Thurman last weekend, however, were primarily focusing on the yard sales. Also, the Thurman ambulance squad opened its doors on Saturday to meet the public, offer hot dogs and hamburgers plus provide rest rooms and free blood pressure checks. Granger noted that this year, people seemed to know where they were going, thanks to the Information Highway. She said that unlike prior years, a large number of visitors had downloaded maps of sale sites posted on the town website.

emorial Day weekend, harbinger of the spring season, arrives at a time when there are typically copious amounts of mud and flying insects in the Adirondacks. The addition of thousands of tourists for the long weekend makes it difficult at times, to decide which is element is the most intrusive. However,tourists usually stick around for less than a week, while blackflies last for months. Like the return of swallows to Capistrano, the appearance of the first black flies in the Adirondacks is the most reliable indicator that spring has finally arrived in the great North Woods. This year ’s significant snowpack, combined with the recent wet weather, promises a heavy year for the "little black devils". Few creatures stir up a comparable degree of fear, dread and outright anger among local inhabitants. We’ll tolerate skunks, black bears and even those damn, Canada geese, without so much as a passing glance. However,we will all curse black flies in unison. We’ll swat them. We’ll pray and we'll spray. We'll hid inside and still we'll be inundated and chewed alive. Outside, there is no escape from these annoying insects They infiltrate our clothing and actually bite a hole in our skin. Their saliva contains an anticoagulant to insure a steady flow of blood, and as it wears off; the bite begins to itch, to offer further irritation to the already abused victim. Historically, visitors to the region feared the airborne pests and a wide variety of efforts have been implemented to fend off the dreaded ‘teeth with wings’. Woodsman often kept a smudge pot with a potent mix of natural and unnatural ingredients smoldering over a small fire. Guides guarded their secret bug smudge recipes with a secrecy that was usually afforded only to a brook trout pond, or a

special, deer run. In later years, aerial applicator sprayed a variety of insecticides in attempts to control the miserable insects. The most commonly used aerial insecticide, Dibrom 13, was mixed with kerosene as a carrying agent and applied in a fine mist. This toxic mix was deemed nearly as dangerous to humans as to the flies. Dibrom targeted only adult flies, and the continued hatches required repeated applications. It was an unhealthy and expensive process. In the Adirondacks, the ban on aerial applications of pesticides took affect in the 1980’s. Since that time, Bti, (Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis), is the only pesticide the NYSDEC allows for the control of biting insects on State Forest Preserve lands. It is extremely specific in targeting black fly larvae, and non-persistent in the environment. Despite the ongoing efforts to stem the annual invasion of ‘flying teeth’, blackflies continue to inflict pain, especially on small children, and adults with above average sensitivity to the bites. I’ve witnessed unsuspecting victims with eyes swollen shut from black fly bites, and I’ve seen children sickened by prolonged exposure to these insects. Victims often have the appearance of a giant cranberry muffin, albeit with legs and arms. In an effort to guard against such injuries, a wide variety of repellants have been developed. The most effective often have high concentrations of DEET, (N,Ndiethyltoluamide). Unfortunately, concerns remain about the safety of using this chemical on humans. DEET may cause allergic reactions in
Adirondack Museum to open on May 27 BLUE MOUNTAIN LAKE — The Adirondack Museum will open for the 54th season on Friday, May 27. This season, the museum opens two new exhibits sure to wow visitors, and also introduces a host of fantastic family activities and special events. The Adirondack Museum’s two new exhibits — “The Adirondack World of A.F. Tait” and “Night Vision: The Wildlife Photography of Hobart V. Roberts” — showcase two very different, yet complimentary, visions of the region. “The Adirondack World of A.F. Tait” features paintings and prints depicting life in the Adirondack woods-images of hunters, sportsmen, guides, and settlers, that include a wealth of historical detail. Arthur Fitzwilliam Tait was the classic artist of Adirondack sport. From the objects Tait worked with to Currier and Ives prints and finished oil paintings, the exhibit showcases Tait’s artistic vision and skill and highlights the region's beauty and character. “Night Vision: The Wildlife Photography of Hobart V. Roberts” focuses on the work of one of the nation’s most recognized amateur wildlife photographers in the first decades of the 20th century. The “Night Vision” exhibit features approximately 35 original large-format photographs of Adirondack wildlife. Roberts’ cameras, equipment, colored lithographic prints, hand-colored transparencies, published works, and his many awards will also be exhibited. Roberts’ Adirondack wildlife photographs represent an important breakthrough in science and the technology of photography. His work has been published in Audubon Magazine, Country Life, Modern Photography, and The National Geographic Magazine. The Adirondack Museum has planned a full schedule of family activities, hands-on experiences, special events, lectures and field trips to delight and engage visitors of all ages. Programming for families in 2011 has expanded to include an Artist in Residence program, and a collaborative canvas where visitors can help paint an Adirondack landscape. The museum is open May 27 through Oct. 17 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., seven days a week, including holidays. All paid admissions are valid for a second visit within a oneweek period. For information, visit www.adirondackmuseum.org.

children, and the higher the concentration, the greater the risk. However, studies reveal concentrations of just 30 percent DEET can be just as effective and much safer, than 100 percent concentrations. There are numerous natural, insect repellents on the market, which contain ingredients such as citronella oil, pennyroyal, camphor, eucalyptus,lemon juice and spearmint. Even Avon's Skin-So-Soft seems to work, but only if it is very liberally applied. Over the years, I’ve used a variety of natural products including Green Ban, Z'off, Naturapel, Bug-B-Gone and BuzzAway. Some work, most don't. However, the most effective I've found is "Ole Time" Woodsman Fly Dope, which is also DEET free. Ole Time Woodsman has the added benefit of keeping people and small dogs at bay. Conveniently, the notso-fragrant scent will also assure you a private seat at local restaurants, one that is far removed from the crowd. Repellents are only as effective as the applicator. A similarly conscientious effort to cover all exposed areas, will usually be just as effective, yet I have yet to find a repellent to keep black flies out of the hair, ears or nose. The most effective method is to cover up. Light clothing is best; with calf-high tube socks to tuck in pant legs and a light turtleneck to cover the neck portion of a
head net. Headnets have become an essential piece of armor. Nets allow you to breathe, talk and listen, without a buzzing in your nose, ears or eye. Wearing a baseball hat under the headnet helps keep the netting away from your face, and adds to the comfort level. When they are particularly thick, I wear light silk or cotton gardening gloves to cover my hands and tuck pant legs into my socks. Bug jackets, with elastic cuffs and full hoods offer a good alternative, however, they are not as durable as regular clothing and will not stand up to mountain scrambles or crashing through a spruce thicket. Remember, black flies cannot fly in winds of 10 mph or more, so this is a good season to be on the water or atop a windy mountain summit. Anglers should also note that while people don't like bugs, trout most certainly do. And finally, it is important to realize the blackflies have a short lifespan, and they are only around for about a month. Upon their departure, it’s only the mosquitoes, deer flies, horse flies and the no-see-ums we have left to fear. Joe Hackett is a guide and sportsman residing in Ray Brook.
