WARRENSBURG —Facing a large, solemn crowd gathered at the Warrensburg Cemetery, Memorial Day Parade Marshal Bill Lamy stepped to the microphone and talked about the service men and women who gave their lives in the name of freedom. “It is most difficult to adequately express the thanks that we all owe the courageous men and women who have died so that we may be free,” he said. Our nation’s great military heroes are also indebted to these front-line soldiers, he said, including 27 from Warrensburg who gave their lives in the line of duty. “The key to their success was based on the sacrifices made by the 27 soldiers from our town and the sons and

HORICON — With balmy weather prevailing, nearly 300 people gathered Sunday in the hamlet of Adirondack, joining the family of Jeremiah Monroe — who was killed eight months ago in Afghanistan — to dedicate a park in his name. V.F.W. Post 5513 Commander Ron Robert introduced post Chaplain Lou Russo who gave the opening prayer in the ceremony to dedicate the Jeremiah Monroe Veterans Memorial Park. Along with Boy Scout Troop 30 members, Robert led the Pledge of Allegiance and welcomed the many people present to the dedication ceremony for the new memorial. About a year ago the Adirondack Honor Roll was erected in memory of World War II veterans. Now with the new

Second showdown set for Stewart’s store

From page 1

WARRENSBURG — For many weeks, the issue of whether or not Stewart’s should be allowed to construct a new convenience store with eight gas pumps on Stewart Farrar Ave. has been debated. Citizens have aired their conflicting views with passion. Some say the relocation is an encroachment into an historic residential district and poses pedestrian safety hazards; others say it’s a progressive, business-friendly change. Next Tuesday at 7 p.m., the issue will go before the Warrensburg Town Planning Board for a formal public hearing. Their decision may result in the uptown neighborhood’s character changing permanently. Stewart’s Shops plans to build the 2,568-square-feet convenience store — about the size of its existing one on lower Main St. — in the middle of the plot that extends from main to Elm Streets off Stewart Farrar Ave. The town board made a controversial decision about two months ago approving a zoning change of a segment of the lot facing Elm Street, from Professional Multi-family to Hamlet Commercial, to allow stores. Opponents of the relocation said the convenience store would be more compatible in Stewart’s present location downtown, which is fully commercial, rather than encroaching into an historic district that includes homes on the National Register of Historic Places, and Richards Library, a stone structure steeped in history. Other concerns have been traffic snarls, reduced property values, and safety of school children who regularly walk to school nearby. Noted local entrepreneur Mike Morey of Champlain Stone has suggested the plot be developed into a town park instead of used for a busy convenience store. Town officials have cited their fears that if denied their favored Stewart Farrar site, Stewart’s might relocate their store across the town line, reducing the local tax base.

daughters of every small community across our country who gave the ultimate sacrifice in the quest for freedom and peace,” he said. The nature of this sacrifice becomes very clear when we we personally know a soldier who was killed while on duty, Lamy said, recalling particularly Fred Flynn and Clark Barlow, young Warrensburg men who were killed in Vietnam. “They left home as boys to serve our country, under the stress of combat they much too quickly grew to be men, and they left this life much too young,” he said. Lamy said he, as a 10-year-old boy, looked up to Clark Barlow who at the time was a successful high school wrestler. “Clark was a star athlete with a chiseled body,” Lamy recalled. “He went to Vietnam and returned home to the sound of Taps,” Lamy said. “I played baseball and soccer with Freddy Flynn — he was the life of his class and Warrensburg High in the mid-1960s — his smile and laugh were contagious.” Lamy noted Flynn died in October 1968. “It’s been 42 years, but Fred’s family and friends still remember when he returned home to the sound of Taps.” For Lamy’s 20-plus years as Parade Marshal, he said that on each Memorial Day, he has experienced poignant thoughts of the soldiers who’ve sacrificed their lives. “For over 20 years, I’ve entered this cemetery with a lump in my throat and my eyes watering,” he said. Local American Legion Post 446 Commander Carson Parker, emcee for the ceremony, solemnly recited a list of those veterans from the Warrensburg-Thurman area who died during the past year. Those that Parker memorialized were: Raymond Needham, Clifford Parsons, John Flynn, Doug Potter, Thomas Ryan, Raymond Koch, Hulbert Frazier, Bryon Paynter Sr., Joseph Ryan, Cliff Belden, Lloyd Dingman Jr., Howard Combs, Robert “Toby” Hastings, Richard Lang, Robert Decker, John Cooper, Harold Moon, Mary Harris, and John Roob. Parker also paid tribute to Memorial Day Parade Grand Marshal Art Brown, 92, who served in the U.S. Army during World War II. In this year ’s parade, he had ridden in the procession in Jack Toney’s 1980 Thunderbird convertible alongside his wife Vera, a long-time teacher at Warrensburg Elementary. Recalling Art Brown’s shoe repair shop on Main St., Parker said “There you’d sure get good service, and a good visit as well,” recalling Brown’s propensity to philosophize. Richard Leonard, Pastor of the Warrensburg Free Methodist Church, offered the ceremonial invocation, advising that citizens should honor those who sacrificed their lives by leading honorable lives themselves.

A contingent of local Boy Scouts in full dress, led by their color guard, offered the Pledge of Allegiance. Participating in placing a ceremonial wreath at the war memorial were Kirsten Rogers, Robbie Hall, Sharon LaGoy and Mary Kenyon — all members of local veterans organizations. Following the playing of Taps, veterans discharging their guns in a salute were Ray Hensler, John Cronkite, Alex Greenmier and Ricky Fish. The crowd, which numbered in the hundreds, held hands for a vocal rendition of God Bless America sung in classic operatic style by Jim Corriveau, vocal director at Warrensburg High School. The parade included firefighters from Warrensburg in their full formal dress, bearing chromed axes. Members of Emergency Medical squads from Warrensburg and Thurman were included in the procession, along with firefighters from Thurman, and sports teams and scouts from both communities.

Riverfront Farmers Market opening a success

F

riday, the Warrensburgh Riverfront Farmers’ Market opened for its 2010 season, and the event was well-attended. People drove from a wide region to browse and purchase the produce and other offerings grown and crafted in Warrensburg, Thurman and the Adirondacks. Every Friday until mid-October, the market will be open from 3 to 6 p.m. The market is held in the town park on the southwestern bank of the Schroon River across from Curtis Lumber on Rte. 418, or River Street.

Several new vendors this year include Crown Point Bread Co. offering their artisan breads and pastries, Aaron and Minnie Nason of Stony Creek with their organic produce, and Sugarloaf Farm with their aged raw-milk cheese. Market organizer Teresa Whalen said that she was pleased with the attendance and the new offerings. “It was a picture-perfect day and everyone enjoyed the experience,” she said.

Special days in Thurman

Observations on small-town life sought

W

hat makes a small community like Thurman so very special? Answer this question and write it up for the John Thurman Historical Society publication, The Quarterly. Society members want others to hear your opinions on the attributes and advantages of growing up here, and the details of what makes small-town life more rewarding than living in a city or village. Only a few words or more from some of our readers will help the historical society in preparing an article. Whether it’s merely the opportunity to see a turtle acrossing the highway, or hear the many woodland birds singing, or listening to the chorus of toads in the spring, all your observations will be appreciated. Send your thoughts to 168 Garnet Lake Road, Warrensburg, NY, 12885.

Community sale drew many from afar Thurman’s Townwide Sale on May 14 through 16 saw many visitors and shoppers coming in from several states and far-away towns. People were very happy to find such a variety of sale items and commented on how friendly the residents were. Many here who set up sales were very pleased with the results, and were glad that they had been included on the maps. The Sale committee expresses thanks everyone who stepped in to help.

Donations intercepted by town government? A reader called in a question this week: If someone sends in a donation to a specific local organization, like the fire compan,. the emergency squad, the town sale committee, or even the cemetery fund, who gets the contribution? Too many rumors are floating around that insinuate that the town is holding all funds. The next town board meeting is on Tuesday June 15, this would be the place to get your concerns out in the open. (Editor’s Note: If money is sent in to an independent organization -- and all these groups have charters independent of town government, then it is the agency that administers the donations, not the town. The town government, however, has withheld its traditional payment to the Thurman Emergency Medical Services pending its full financial disclosures.)

Library Battlefield tour and cruise this weekend

T

he Bolton Free Library is sponsoring a guided walking tour of the battlefield at the Saratoga National Park and a cruise on the tour boat “Caldwell Belle” through Lock 5 on the Champlain Canal down the Hudson River, reviewing the battlefield from the river. The tour, on Saturday June 5, will be led by 18th century

always, there will be free admission to the event. The market will have vegetables, eggs, baked goods and crafts for sale as they do each Wednesday through summer.

Over the fence A gripe was called in this week, warning fellow Thurmanites who have intentions to be good neighbors but may trust too much. The caller reported that a man stopped by a local home and asked for a bit of gas because he had run out on his way to town, and the good neighbor “loaned” what little he had. The man said he was going to bring some back — but that was two weeks ago. The tax collector position will listed be on the November ballot, which is the only position open in Thurman. Those who wish to run for this office can start on June 8 gathering signatures on petitions. Call 761-6459 for details.

Attention teens and new neighbors Teenagers who will celebrate their 18th birthday by Election Day in November should call for a voter registration form to fill out and have it ready to mail before Nov. 1. Also, any newcomers to Thurman will want to register here to vote. Those seeking to register or report an address change should call 761-6459 to make arrangements to fill our a form, available from the Warren County Board of Elections.

Registration for summer recreation program All children who plan on attending Thurman’s summer recreation program, which begins July 6, can pre-register June 28 at the town youth building. Program directors and teen assistants will be attending a Red Cross CPR course on June 27. For details, call 6239649.

Activities, events set in Thurman The board of directors of the Thurman Emergency Squad will be meeting at 7 p.m. Sunday June 6 in the squad building on High St. Those with questions may call 6239649 or 623-9014.

In "The Hat," the audience will meet Joshua as a boy and as an adult and see how he comes to realize that there is something which is never lost but gained, when folks learn to give what they love away. Shively’s program has been appreciated by churches and groups from Maine to Florida with great acclaim, church officials said. The storytelling will be accompanied by two videos.

Tennis racquets sought for local youth The Bolton Town Recreation Department is seeking tennis racquets for the free youth tennis lessons offered during the summer.

LAKE GEORGE • ADIRONDACK JOURNAL - 5

Americade is back with new offerings By Thom Randall thom@denpubs.com LAKE GEORGE — Tens of thousands of motorcyclists will be rolling into the region this week to enjoy the varied activities of Americade, considered the world’s premier touring motorcycle rally. Whether it’s browsing for bike accessories, examining manufacturers’ prototypes, test-driving new models, taking a guided two-wheeled tour into the mountains, or socializing with long-time Americade buddies, motorcyclists will be undoubtedly enjoying the six-day event that is now legendary after several decades of success. This year ’s edition of the world’s largest and most renowned rally of its kind, features a full slate of events, new vendors and a new motorcycle brand represented, event founder Bill Dutcher said. “Once again, we’re going to give these two-wheeled visitors the best time of their lives,” he said. Activities include workshops, demo rides, cruises, excursions, entertainment, concerts, contests, scavenger hunts, equipment clinics — you name it. One main focus of Americade is its TourExpo trade show, the world’s largest marketplace for touring, sport-touring, cruiser products & services. It will again be housed in part at the Lake George Forum — which has reopened for 2010 —

For more information, a schedule of events and tickets, visit LakeGeorgeElvisFest.com, or call 681-7452, event promoter Jason Sherry said. “We’re really excited to be back at the Lake George Forum, and we know everyone will have a fabulous time,” he said.

as well as the Million Dollar Beach parking lot. New this year is a lineup of themed cruises, representing a Hawaiian Luau, the King of Rock, the Country Hoedown boat or a Mardi Gras cruise complete with a zydeco band. They all include themed music, costumes and entertainment, Americade officials said. New sponsored activities include horseback riding, whitewater rafting and hot-air ballooning, Dutcher said. Also new is the participation of Royal Enfield Motorcycles, a fabled brand from Great Britain. Dutcher said Americade has seen almost as many advance reservations this year as in the past, despite the recent economic turbulence. He said his staff has been promoting and marketing more aggressively than ever to keep the attendance robust. He said the gate will depend on the weather. “We’re hoping for weather as good as last year,” he said, noting that Americade Week 2009 was the best weather of the season. “We know we have a tough act to live up to.”

Caldwell Church to host Americade breakfast LAKE GEORGE — Caldwell Presbyterian Church is again hosting its 13th annual series of Big Breakfasts during Americade Week. The breakfasts will be held from 6:30 am to 10 a.m. daily from Wednesday June 9 through Saturday June 12 at the church, located at 71 Montcalm St. The menu includes scrambled eggs, sausage and bacon, pancakes, English muffins, bagels, juice, coffee or tea. Cost for the breakfast is $6.50. For details, call the church office at 668-2613 or 668-4245.

Man drowns in Lake George after canoe capsizes LAKE GEORGE — An Albany man drowned Monday not far from shore in Lake George when a canoe he was paddling was capsized by the wake of a passing powerboat, police said. Stephen T. Canaday, 49, was pulled up from the lakebottom at about 2:40 p.m. not far from shore near Sun Castle Resort, and efforts to resuscitate him were unsuccessful, authorities said. He apparently died after being transported to Glens Falls Hospital, they said. The resort is north of Lake George Village off state Rte. 9N. Canaday and Steven Zaccari, 42, Latham, had just left Tea Island and paddled about 35 feet from shore when their 15foot canoe was capsized, according to a preliminary investigation conducted by the Warren County Sheriff ’s Office. Zaccari swam to shore when he realized Canaday had not, and he immediately returned to the area where their canoe had overturned, the law officers concluded. Zaccari located Canaday on the lake bottom in about 12 feet of water, police said. He was able to summon occupants of a passing motorboat, and they called 911. Lake George Park Commission Sergeant Cindy Dalappa was first on the scene, and she pull Canaday up from the lake bottom, police said. She was assisted in loading Canaday onto her vessel by responding boaters, law officers, and fire and rescue personnel. Attempts at resuscitation were made at the scene and during transport to the Glens Falls Hospital by Lake George Emergency Medical Responders. Canaday was later pronounced dead at Glens Falls Hospital. Canaday and Zaccari were not wearing life preservers when their canoe capsized, but they did have them aboard, police said. Investigation into the incident is continuing, authorities said.

•100 Years Ago – June, 1910• Heavy rains affect farming, electric service

W

e have had heavy rains for several days and the brooks and ponds are all full to overflowing. What garden crops aren’t drowned are doing well. “The hay crop from the old meadows will be light in spite of the rains,“ says Lewis Thomson, of Warrensburgh, one of the largest individual holders of farm properties in northern New York. We are sure, however, to have water to run the electric lights all this season. During the recent heavy thunderstorms, one of the Warrensburgh Electric Company’s transformers on River Street burned out at about 11 p.m., leaving the town in the dark.

Great balls of fire In a thunderstorm June 15, 1910, lightening struck Seth Alden’s house (now the store house at the bottom of Alden Avenue once owned by editor Robert Hall), tore off a curtain in one of the rooms, then the bolt zig-zagged down cellar and out through the kitchen, where Seth and Julia Burke Alden were both severely shocked. (Note: This indoor phenomenon is called “ball lightening.” Back in colonial times, it was thought to be the manifestation of the Devil.) Another bolt burned out the fuses in the motive power at the Woolen Mill (now 18 Milton Avenue lot) and destroyed two of the electric light company’s transformers, one near James Stewart’s residence (which long ago stood in what is now Lizzie Keays’ parking lot) and the other in front of R.D. Baker ’s store in Lewisville (River Street).

Woolen Mill thrives D.W. Hayes, purchasing agent for E.W. Edwards & Sons department store at Syracuse, was in Warrensburgh recently on business, principally to purchase 4,000 pairs of men’s wool pants from the Woolen Mill. Manager Milton N. Eldridge and sales agent E.C. Austin entertained Mr. Hayes at the Viele Pond Clubhouse June 21, 1910. Berry W. Woodward and Byron Harrington were also members of the party.

(The Woolen Mill was on the lot on Milton Ave. where Tioga Construction Co. now has their equipment stored in preparation of building a new Woolen Mill bridge. The Viele Pond Club was a camp located on the summit of Harrington Hill.)

Fishing trip ends in disaster Mrs. James H. Wilsey, who with her husband conducts the Pinegrove farmhouse, eight miles north of Warrensburgh, and her guest, Mrs. Fred G. Stewart of Philadelphia, decided to go fishing in Tripp Pond adjoining the Wilsey farm. The ladies put out in the Wilsey row boat and 20 feet from shore they attempted to change places in the boat. The boat overturned and threw both of them into about 11 feet of water. Their cries for help brought Mr. Stewart and John Tennyson running from the Wilsey barn on the main road and they had to go around to the end of the pond to get the Tennyson boat to put out in. There were no oars to be found and they ripped off a seat to make a paddle. Mrs. Wilsey had gone down twice but managed to cling to the overturned boat. Mrs. Stewart was still in the water and was towed ashore by the rescuers. The ladies feel very fortunate to have escaped drowning.

Lady found badly injured Mrs. George W. Howland of Ketchum’s Corners fell down stairs while carrying a lighted lamp. The breaking of the chimney nearly severed her ear and she was rendered unconscious. The fire burned itself out after a time. The woman is suffering from shock and loss of blood. She was found an hour after the accident by the neighbors.

Uninvited Guest A fine deer was seen near the residence of J.Q. Adams in Knowelhurst (near Stony Creek) one morning recently. They get more shy as soon as the hunters get after them. (Note…Recently, around sunset I drove into my dooryard on Milton Avenue and found a deer grazing on my lawn. We looked wearily at each other for five minutes and

denpubs@denpubs.com WARRENSBURG — The state Department of Environmental Conservation issued a report recently highlighting the impact of New York’s fiscal woes on the agency’s day-to-day operations. According to information issued by DEC Region 5 spokesman David Winchell, the state’s budget shortfall is limiting the agency’s ability to conduct road maintenance in the Adirondack Forest Preserve. Additionally, fiscal problems have delayed construction of recreational facilities on easement lands and have

prevented the hiring of assistant forest rangers this summer. The report also notes a number of roads will remain temporarily closed due to the inability to maintain and patrol them. Dozens of roads are currently closed to public motor vehicle access. Many area roadways are gated due to muddy conditions and will remain closed until maintenance can be conducted. The roads are still open for non-motorized recreational use. The release notes that ongoing parking lot, road, trail, and public facility projects have been suspended pending further funding.

Deaths in the news Clayton L. Everts, 41, of Warrensburgh, died Saturday morning, May 21, 1910 of a complication of diseases. He leaves a widow, a brother, Watson Everts of Athol and a sister, Mrs. Fred J. Hayes of Warrensburgh. Theodore F. Dingman, 30, the son of Bradford Dingman, died Friday, May 27, 1910 in Glens Falls where he moved only two months ago from Warrensburgh. He leaves a widow. Burial was in the Warrensburgh Cemetery in a heavy downpour of rain. Henry Middleton, 84, died June 4, 1910 at his home in Olmstedville. He is survived by a widow and six daughters. Mrs. Harriet Pratt, 52, of Horicon Avenue, died June 14, 1910 of diabetes at her home in Warrensburgh. In Knowelhurst, Mrs. Charles Swanson has put up a fine granite monument for her husband in the Van Auken Cemetery. Schuyler Glassbrook has also put up a fine one for his father, Alexander Glassbrook in the Glassbrook Cemetery.

Corrections Because of computer difficulties there were mistakes in the May 22, column. Sisters, Mrs. F.R. Saville and Daisy Langworthy, of Warrensburg, were in Downey, Ca. on May 8, 1910, at the deathbed of their aunt, Alma Bennett. North Country legend “Uncle Mart Moody” was stricken with paralysis at Big Moose Lake. It was Seneca Ray Stoddard, of Glens Falls, not Moody, who was getting ready to publish his 40 edition of his Adirondack Guide, “The Adirondack Illustrated.” A while back I wrote that Emerald and Pearl Pasco were the children of Alexander Pasco. Actually, Pearl was Emerald’s daughter. Thanks go to the readers who called. Readers are welcome to contact Adirondack Journal correspondent Jean Hadden at jhadden1@nycap.rr.com or 623-2210

Process of reviewing Stewart’s plan is flawed!

Budget woes crimps Adk. road maintenance By Chris Morris

SATURDAY June 5, 2010

Rugge: We’re committed to Warrensburg’s future To the editor: While many of my Warrensburg patients have expressed support for Hudson Headwaters’ plan to sell property to Stewart’s, I have also heard and understand the concerns of others. Hudson Headwaters’ goal in selling this property is twofold. First, we hope to raise money for improvements to the Warrensburg Health Center. Second, we hope to convey the property to a responsible party, which we believe Stewart’s to be. Hudson Headwaters’ ownership of the land on Stewart Farrar dates back 20 years when we acquired the former U.S. Post Office building; later we bought the adjacent lot that borders Main Street. Our plan was to build a second health facility in Warrensburg as we seemed to be landlocked at the Health Center and were pressed for space. Our ideas for the future changed when we were able to secure and renovate Engle’s Department Store which now houses House Calls Pharmacy and our dental center. Then came the conversion of Charlie’s shoe store into our Network training center. I’m glad to say these moves caused no controversy at all! Everyone at Hudson Headwaters is proud of the partnership we have with this community. With Warrensburg’s support, the health center and the whole Network have grown and grown. Forty-five thousand annual patient visits and 125 employees in Warrensburg alone represent a great start, but there is still more need and we want to meet it. We want the Warrensburg Health Center to continue to grow as the hub and referral center for our entire North Country service area. The sale of our property to Stewart’s will help make this possible. Without question, there are people who passionately believe that the move by Stewart’s would hurt the look of downtown and create too much traffic for this location. I count many of them as my patients and my friends. Others — who are also my patients and my friends — think new business would be good for the town and its tax base. I for one look forward to seeing the proceeds from a nowempty lot make the Warrensburg Health Center an even bigger success. Most of all, however, I want any health center expansion to be part of a strong future for the community. John Rugge, M.D. Founder HHHN and Warrensburg/Chester health centers

To the editor: After careful study of documents relating to the environmental review process for the rezoning of the plot at Stewart Farrar Ave. between Elm and Main streets and relocation of Stewart’s there, one has to conclude that so many errors have been made that the review has been fatally flawed, must already be null and void, and will have to go back to square one. Hudson Headwaters Health Network submitted their rezoning request last January using the wrong environmental assessment form. Stewart’s submitted their application in February. Despite advice from the town attorney that the two actions must be combined for review because they are in the historic district, the town board proceeded to handle them as separate actions throughout the review process. The rezoning petition, by itself, was referred to the town and county planning boards for their March meetings. Both of those boards stated explicitly that they were dealing only with the rezoning. The town board in February scheduled and rescheduled a public hearing, both times solely for the rezoning facet of the issue. At that hearing, held on March 16, the town attorney told the board that the hearing was for the zoning change. The supervisor asked the public to “keep your topic to the zone change.” Following an environmental review (SEQR) at that meeting, the town board issued a “negative declaration” for the rezoning only, i.e., they determined there were no significant adverse environmental impacts. The attorney reminded them again that this was only for the rezoning. In May, Stewart’s proposal was submitted separately to the Warren County planning board. All this separating (segmentation) of the two parts of the overall action violates the rules of the State Environmental Quality Review Act. The town’s review of HHHN’s rezoning application was conducted by filling out Stewart’s construction application, not an application by HHHN. Site plan review of Stewart’s application by the planning board has been scheduled for June 8, but Stewart’s application has not yet gone through the state environmental review process (SEQR), and that must be done prior to site plan review, and by the same board that did it for the rezoning, and at the same time. It can’t be segmented at different times between different boards. Paul Weick Warrensburg (Editor’s Note: Contacted to verify this letter, Paul added a few points — that several of the entries on the rezoning SEQR were either incorrect or blank, including whether large amounts of gasoline would be stored in-ground at the site. He also said the DOT traffic study cited by the town boards was cursory, and didn’t take into account that traffic patterns would likely change dramatically once the store was launched and the Milton St. bridge is reopened. He predicted that if the store is approved, after the bridge is reopened a high volume of commuters would be cutting through the residential, historic Elm. St./Library Ave. neighborhood to get to Stewart’s for a morning fill-up and their morning coffee on their way to work.)

ADIRONDACK JOURNAL - 7

Co-op pledges to cut fuel bills for members WARRENSBURG — A new cooperative purchasing operation based in the Capital District has now expanded into the Warrensburg-Lake George region. Galway Co-op is now seeking customers in northern Warren County, and they are pledging the lowest possible prices for propane, trash removal and by later this year, heating fuel. Co-op founder Michael Casadei cited instances in which Co-op members routinely purchase propane at 20 to 25 percent off prevailing prices, and in some cases, 70 to 75 percent lower. “The bottom line is, with our membership we have a twomillion-gallon buying power per year for propane, so we can offer a significantly lower price,” he said. Homeowners and businesses join for an annual administrative fee of $35, then get the advantage of buying fuel at the lowest possible mark-up from wholesale prices, he said. Galway Co-op prices aren’t illusory promotional prices that jump upward after an initial period, he said. Also, the Co-op has low, competitive rates for service, he said. In addition, the co-op offers protection against prices that jump without reason, he said, citing propane providers in the area that boost prices to whatever they think they can get out of particular customers — a practice that has been in-

vestigated by area news organizations, Casadei said. “Propane prices can be all over the board,” he said. “Propane providers can charge whatever they want whenever they want, and they don’t have to give you a reason why.” In contrast, Galway Co-op publicizes the prevailing wholesale and retail prices of propane to keep their customers properly informed about price fluctuations, he said. The co-op also offers to their members a 30 percent discount off list price for trash removal through County Waste in the firm’s service territory. Casadei is now negotiating a partnership with a fuel oil supplier for delivery of heating fuel at discount rates. Also, he is looking towards offering discount electricity, food and other essential services through cooperative buying. The Galway Co-op was founded by Casadei and a group of neighbors in Galway who sought to boost their buying power. The co-op grew from an initial 16 members and when they told their friends and co-workers, the co-op grew dramatically. It now has nearly 3,000 members, Casadei said. Cutting fuel costs is not the only benefits provided by Galway Co-op. The group donates 10 percent of its profit to charities, and this has amounted to many thousands of dollars to community-service groups, including money to

groups that combat illnesses and conditions like breast cancer and autism, and towards local emergency service groups, like fire companies. “This is a win-win situation,” Casadei said. “People are going to be saving a lot of money while charities benefit.” In northern Warren County, Casadei plans initially to donate money to local food pantries, considering that need for such basics has grown so much in the last 18 months, he said. That sum might be as much as $5,000, based on propane sales projections, he said. “This is simply a matter of giving back to our customers’ communities,” he said. Galway Co-op members are offered a variety of other discounts for services, and details are on the co-op’s website at: fuels4less.com. There, people can examine an added benefit to members, which is a bonus of up to $75 credit for customers who refer new propane customers. This credit can mount up, Casadei said, noting that one pizzeria in the region hasn’t used their credits to pay for propane costs for more than two years. Information on the referral program — offered through Galway Co-op’s propane partner Ferrellgas — is on the www.fuels4less.com website.

Monroe

duty. Chris Gibson, Retired Army Colonel and Brigade Commander of the 82nd Airborne,aid that there’s a special place called “Valhalla” where heroes go to rest, and Jeremiah is already there and that we should celebrate what he lived for. “Jeremiah laid down his life so we may live free," he said. Town of Chester Supervisor and Warren County Chairman Fred Monroe said it was fitting to dedicate the memorial on Memorial Day weekend to honor Jeremiah Monroe and remember the sacrifices of other U.S. service personnel. “We owe them all a debt that we cannot repay,” he said. Supervisor Bentley thanked all the veterans attending for their service to our country and for making this a special day for the dedication of the memorial park. Besides the local V.F.W. Post 5513 and American Legion Post 964 members, other officials of regional veterans groups attended. These representatives included: Donald Essenter, Commander of the Hudson-Mohawk Counties Council of V.F.W.; Warren County Commander Joe Cattablaine; and Dawn Grant, 4th District President of the American Legion Auxiliary for Warren County. Gold Star Mother Maryellen Jackowski, of Chestertown also attended. Her son was killed many years ago in the conflict in Beirut. American Legion Post 964 Commander Joanne Ellsworth said during the ceremony she visited the Jeremiah Monroe Memorial Park Saturday night for some inspiration. She said that the brook adjacent to the park and beautiful night provided a sense of serenity, in contrast to the solemn patriotic pageantry and receptive crowd on Sunday. She said that the park should be appreciated for all it stands for. Horicon resident Lindsay Meade, a Junior at North Warren High, sang “Proud to Be An American” to a very appreciative audience after which Lou Russo gave the closing prayer. The joint efforts of the V.F.W. Post 5513 and American Legion Post 964 in presenting the dedication ceremony, along with the true Adirondack small-town spirit, proved once again the slogan emblazoned on the ceremony program, as well as engraved in the hearts of North Country residents: “We Shall Never Forget Our Veterans’ Sacrifices.”

From page 1 park, all veterans are honored, particularly those who sacrificed their lives defending their nation, Robert said. "This is now a memorial for all veterans of all wars and especially for those who didn’t come home," he said. The family of Jeremiah Monroe joined Roberts for the unveiling of the memorial plaque honoring Jeremiah, who was an Army private. Red carnations, donated by Becky’s Bloomers, were presented to the family members — who approached the memorial plaque, imbedded in a boulder. Each of Jeremiah’s relatives bore a red carnation, as the memorial was unveiled from underneath a black drape. Horicon Supervisor Ralph Bentley observed about how Horicon, like other towns in the North Country, has a strong sense of community, and how the park provides an appropriate, serene place for people to gather, reflect on soldiers’ sacrifices, and recall those who have passed on. Bentley introduced U.S. Rep. Scott Murphy (D-Glens Falls) who related that soon after taking office last year a good friend of his lost a sister in the conflict. He accompanied the family to Dover Air Force Base when her body was brought back stateside. He said he then realized the enormity of his responsibilities as a Congressman to make the right decisions in behalf of all the people. He presented a flag that had flown over the Capital to Delores Monroe, Jeremiah’s mother. “Jeremiah will always be in our minds and our hearts,” Murphy said. State Senator Betty Little remarked on the special significance of Memorial Day, as it gathers all veterans and citizens in honoring the soldiers who did not return from battle. She said that this beautiful memorial will help Jeremiah’s family and all of us. She also has a son serving on an aircraft carrier and she prays each day that she will remain a Blue Star mother, not a Gold Star mother, a designation for one who has lost a son or daughter in the line of

Local students win photo-art competition CHESTERTOWN — Five North Warren High School students were among the winners in a regional fine-art photographic competition held by the Lake Placid Institute for the Arts and Humanities. The contest, which includes an exhibition of the winning entries, follows a theme of "24 Hours — a Photographic Interpretation of Life in the Adirondacks." This year's entries were judged by New York City-based curator Kate Menconeri, who has organized over 100 exhibitions and curated dozens of shows for the Center of Photography at Woodstock, and most recently, Bard College. The winners will receive personalized feedback on their work from Ms. Menconeri. Winning student photographers from North Warren Central School were Victoria Baker, Maggie Atkinson, Dillon Engleman, Chelsey Crossman and Cody Higgins. Other participating schools with winning student entries include Saratoga Springs High School, Bethlehem Central, Saranac High, Corinth Central, Northwood High, Lowville Academy and Lowville Central. An opening reception for the exhibition will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday May 28 at the North Elba-Lake Placid Historical Museum, located at the old Lake Placid train station. The exhibition will remain there through June 27. The exhibit then moves July 6 to the Adirondack Lakes Center of Arts in Blue Mountain Lake, where it will remain through August 21, and close that day with a reception from 4 to 6 p.m. The winning images will also be viewable on the online photo gallery at www.lakeplacidinstitute.org after Tuesday, June 1. "I was impressed by the quality of everyone's work," Menconeri said, noting that capturing new perspectives is common when traveling afar, but a challenge with familiar surroundings.”It is most amazing and profound when one captures something unexpected in their own backyard — This is what stood out the most in the work submitted.”

Yoga, hiking highlight Bolton’s debut ‘Girlfriends Getaway’ By Michelle Maskaly Special to Adirondack Journal denpubs@denpubs.com WARRENSBURG — It was a weekend filled with fun, fitness, fashion and friendship for the dozens of women from at least three states and Canada who recently attended the first Girlfriends Getaway in Bolton Landing at The Sagamore Resort. The weekend kicked off May 14 with a meet-and-greet cocktail party on The Sagamore’s new Overlook Terrace. Attendees enjoyed a panoramic view of Lake George from the third floor of the resort while “noshing” on a spread of appetizers and sipping cocktails, all while networking, dancing and getting to know their newfound friends. Mats and towels lined the floor of a packed conference room Saturday morning, as many of the 96 women started the jam-packed day of events with an hour-long yoga class. The weekend’s sessions were geared to empowering women to live their life to the fullest and staying mentally and physically active. The workshops included a presentation on creating one’s own garden sanctuary, a kayak lesson, a fashion show, a hiking trip and cooking

demonstration by Sagamore Executive Chef Adam Savage. A session on the new Crystalline Consciousness Technique sought to boost the group's energy field to a harmonic, coherent state. “The weather was perfect and the women not only left with knowledge to help improve the quality of their lives but they also formed new friendships,” said Wauneata Waller, Girlfriends Getaway organizer. The event’s keynote speaker was Channel 9 News YNN’s health and fitness reporter Marci Fraser, who kept the group engaged in a conversation about the importance of staying in shape, and the tools they need to make it happen. Throughout the weekend, the women participated in a town-wide scavenger hunt and were treated to specially priced meals at participating restaurants. “I was overwhelmed by all the positive feedback and the anticipation of next year's Girlfriends Getaway,” Waller said. “I am grateful to all the shops, businesses and restaurants that participated in this weekends event.” Michelle Maskaly is a multimedia journalist and social media freelancer.

Bike Week 2010 has lineup of events By Thom Randall thom@denpubs.com WARRENSBURG — This next week, more motorcyclists than ever may congregate along Main St. in uptown Warrensburg for the event now known as Warrensburg Bike Week. Over the last eight years, more and more motorcyclists have been gathering during the first two weeks of June to browse and buy the offerings of dozens of vendors of motorcycle-related goods and services. This year, there may be a record number in Warrensburg, predicted Don Bagwell, organizer of Bike Week. This event, which began as a spillover from Americade —the nationally-known touring motorcycle rally — has finally come into its own, with its official name, events and entertainment, a website, 50 vendors, several benefit rides, and dozens of sponsors in the community. Bagwell, a retailer of military goods, said that thousands more bikers may be in Warrensburg this year, as thousands may stop off on their way as they travel from afar to the famed Laconia Motorcycle Week rally. On Saturday June 5 at 1 p.m., a Bike Week kickoff concert will be held at Floyd Bennett Bandstand in uptown Warrensburg. The concert features the group Chained Lightning. Also this Saturday is a charity ride, with proceeds to benefit recovering thyroid cancer patient Tammy Benoit of Warrensburg. Registration is at Ashe’s Hotel from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. On Sunday June 6, The Warrensburg Elementary playground committee is hosting a breakfast from 8 a.m. until noon in the

School cafeteria. At 9:15 a.m., a “blessing of the bikes” will be held at the Warrensburg Health Center parking lot in downtown Warrensburg. Holy Cross Episcopal Pastor John Cornelius will preside. Daily from June 5 through 12 area log home companies will be sponsoring charity runs to benefit North Country Ministry, which aids those in financial distress. Through the whole week, Warrensburg Bike Week will be conducting a Poker Draw to benefit North Country Ministry. Registration is at the Ministry's outreach center on upper Main St. There’s a $500 first prize for the biker that completes his lineup of destinations faster than anyone else. Friday June 11 from noon to 1 p.m. in the QVN Motors parking lot — the center of vendor activity — will be a performance of Rick Redington & the Luv, a band from Vermont that plays original roots music. Saturday June 12, a trio of motorcycle riders, the Flaming Pumpkins, will be hosting a benefit ride for North Country Ministry, starting at CB Spirits & Restaurant on River St. Registration is from 9:30 to 11 a.m. Bagwell said Tuesday that he expects bikers from Canada, Europe and all over the world to be coming here. “In Warrensburg, we have toll-free shopping, and no wristbands to buy,” he said. “Visitors love the Adirondacks, for the weather, the roads, the sights, the whole experience — and we want you here in this town.” Bagwell said visitors and local residents should get out and enjoy the events over the week. “It will be a blast,” he said.

Veterans from Chester, Horicon and surrounding towns march down Valley Farm Rd. Saturday as they participate in the annual Northern Warren County Memorial Day ceremony, hosted this year in Pottersville. This tribute to departed soldiers who sacrificed their lives for their nation is annually characterized by patriotism and reverence locally. Photo by Joe/Barbara Slattery

Adirondack forest fires: A clear and present danger

W

ith less than one tenth of an inch of rain fallen over the region in the past month, the dangers of a major forest fire are readily apparent. Currently, with no rain on the horizon, the Adirondack forests remain a tinderbox. On the morning of Memorial Day, it appeared that fire had finally arrived, as a smoky haze covered the region and obscured the distant mountaintops. Fortunately for the Adirondacks, the smoke and haze were delivered on winds hailing from Quebec, where 52 fires had already burned more than a quarter million acres. According to news reports, the majority of the fires were burning near La Tuque, Quebec, about 150 miles northwest of Montreal. It isn’t the first time Canadian fires have affected our

weather. In 2002, smoke from fires in the Lac St. Jean region of Quebec darkened the sky over Ottawa and Montreal and the smoky haze was evident as far south as Washington, D.C. The history of forest fires in the Adirondacks is significant, and stretches back a century to the most devastating fires that occurred around the turn of the 20th century, when the fires of 1903 and 1908 consumed nearly a million acres of forested lands. The Adirondack’s primary fire seasons have always been the spring and fall of the year, when there is an abundance of dry leaves, tinder and winds to fan a fire. I can recall several instances of fighting fires as a teenager, when the pay was meager but the food was always good. It always seemed that youngsters got the worse part of the job and were rarely assigned to the front lines. Typically, we were used for “mop up detail,” which required raking over a burned area to check for coals or an underground fire. We discovered the hot spots by checking for heat with a bare hand, which always brought blisters. We would then dig up the forest duff, spray it with water from an Indian Tank strapped on our back and move on. Firefighting has not advanced much since the 1970’s, as the same methods are applied today. In 1903, a 72-day drought brought on forest fires that scorched more than 600,000 acres of Adirondack lands, centered near Lake Placid. At the time, fires also burned in Schroon Lake, Lake George, Olmstedville, Newcomb, Ausable Forks, Saranac Lake and Clintonville.

SATURDAY June 5, 2010 The NY Times reported at the time, an estimate of ground burned at more than 1,000,000 acres, or about one-fifth of the entire territory. The fires were so consuming that cinders were reported falling as far away as Albany, 150 miles to the south. Smoke from the fires eventually reached Washington, D.C. Five years later, in 1908, the Adirondacks experienced the most devastating fires to date as the blazes burned almost continuously for nearly four months across the Park. By September 1908, both New York City and Quebec City to the north were blanketed in clouds of smoke from fires in Hamilton, Herkimer, St. Lawrence, Franklin, and Essex counties. The smoke was reportedly so thick, that ships were forced to use foghorns in NY Harbor. By the end of the month, fires had consumed lands from Lake Lila east to Sabbatis and all the way to Horseshoe Station near Tupper Lake. Other fires burned from the vast Bay Pond Park of William Rockefeller all the way to Saranac Lake village, consuming over 150,000 acres of forested land. The great fires of ’08 resulted in new laws to detect and prevent forest fires, that were enacted in 1909. To protect the forests, locomotives could only burn oil from April 15 through Oct. 31 to prevent the sparks that were responsible for so many fires. Loggers were required by law to limb everything left behind and new systems of fire surveillance included the construction of fire towers and state regulated fire patrolmen. The new legislation also provided the governor with the power to close both public and private forests during times of high fire danger. Despite such efforts, by 1910, nearly one-third of the northern forests had been cut over or consumed by fire. Today less than 10 percent of the Adirondack forest is considered old growth.
