Gibson says he’ll fight for Thurman flood relief funds

Americade’s appeal: escape, friendship, tours By Thom Randall

By Thom Randall THURMAN — On a local jaunt Tuesday, June 7 to a bridge washed out by the recent extensive flooding, U.S. Rep. Chris Gibson pledged to lobby federal officials for money to repair the widespread damage throughout Thurman and northern Warren County. Thurman Town Supervisor Evelyn Wood, hosting the tour, estimated the damage to local roads and bridges from the widespread flooding over Memorial Day weekend to cost $7 million. That sum is than 10 times the sum of the town’s annual operating budget. “If we have to pay for this damage, our town will face bankruptcy,” she said. “It’s imperative we get federal and state help.” Standing on the remains of bridge on Combs Road that was washed out, Gibson said he was hopeful that federal assistance would be approved. He said he was lobbying hard to get the damage occurring in late May in upstate New York — including Warren County — to See GIBSON, page 5

Dave Wright, 72 and Myra Lincoln, 68 of Gorham, N.Y. pulled into Fort William Henry Resort Monday for opening festivities of Americade touring motorcycle rally on Wright’s hand-built trike, a full 15 feet long, turned a lot of heads with it’s boxy, industrial look and its Chevy 350 engine, which boasts 5700 cubic centimeters of raw power. The custom ride may not be able to accomplish ‘wheelies’ as it weighs more than a ton, but it will indeed do impressive ‘burnouts,’ Wright said.

LAKE GEORGE — John and Patti Hevern of Pittsford, N.Y. stood in a long line of motorcycle enthusiasts that snaked through hallways at the Lake George Holiday Inn, waiting to register for Americade 2011. The annual touring motorcycle rally, considered the largest of its kind in the world, began checking in pre-registered participants Monday, June 6. The parking lot behind the Holiday Inn was a sea of motorcycles, and registrants had to wait up to an hour to get to the check-in tables due to the crowd. But regardless of the wait, nearly all of the cyclists exhibited smiles, including the Heverns, who were chatting with others in line. “Nine years ago, we specifically planned our wedding so Americade would be our honeymoon,” Patti “P.J.” Hevern said. “That’s how much this Americade ‘family’ means to us,” she said.

Beach pole-vault event likely for Lake George By Thom Randall LAKE GEORGE – While the village of Lake George has seen an intriguing variety of events over the years, a new one is likely to occur this summer on the shores of the lake — beach pole vaulting. Within a month, athletes of both genders will likely be hurtling themselves through the air — as high as 17 feet — and tumbling onto a popular beach, while hundreds of spectators cheer them on. A duo of track coaches are seeking to bring a public pole vaulting competition to Shepard Park beach this summer, and village board members endorsed the concept at a special meeting May 26. The competition would offer a visual spectacle for crowds on the beach and nearby pier at

Shepard Park, event organizer Dennis Hogan said Monday. “It will offer thrills for spectators, both visitors and locals,” said Hogan, a former track coach at Ballston Spa High School. He and Don Peretta, a pole vault coach at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, are organizing the competition. Both were in Lake George recently, talking to Mayor Blais about the competition, walking over Shepard Park Beach, reviewing how much room they might need. Hogan said he owns a platform pole-vault setup with a cushioned fall zone. He said all that needs to be accomplished to make the polevault event a reality in Lake George is sanctioning by USA Track and Field authorities for insurance purposes, and official approval by the Lake George Village Board.

He said experienced pole vaulters from around the U.S. have expressed interest in participating, and up to 125 competitors — would be involved. Lake George Chamber of Commerce Interim president Michael Consuelo said this week that the event is expected to include Olympic hopefuls, and seasoned college athletes, as well as top high school pole vaulters. Hogan said the event would likely also include an open class. Hogan said the closest outdoor pole-vaulting competition open to all competitors is now held in New Jersey, and an event in upstate New York hosted by Lake George would be a popular attraction for both competitors and athletes. “There are a whole group of athletes that will be so excited to come to Lake George,” he said. See POLE VAULT, page 5

Beach pole vaulting, which offers thrills for spectators, is now in the planning stages t o occur on a Saturday in July. The one -day competitive event would likely feature c ollege and high school athlet es as w ell as Olympic hopefuls.

Community garden

The Warrensburg Community Garden will soon become a reality, and it’s time for gardeners to reserve their plots.

June 11, 2011 The garden will be located at the Warrensburg Chamber of Commerce/Senior Center on Main St. A grant was awarded to Warrensburg for the design and planning of the garden area, through the assistance of Cornell Cooperative Extension. The town is responsible for the preparation of the garden, which features raised beds. These plots will be available for town residents to plant vegetables for personal home use. With healthy eating and lifestyles being stressed in the schools and by medical authorities, Warrensburg residents can heed the advice and take advantage of a great opportunity to pursue the art of gardening in a neighborly atmosphere.

Marcella to run for Warrensburg Town Board By Thom Randall WARRENSBURG — Linda Baker Marcella, who in May was re-elected to the Warrensburg Central School Board, has announced her intent to run for a seat on the Warrensburg Town Board. Marcella said this week she is running because she is concerned about the future of Warrensburg and the local school district. Objectives of her candidacy include the expansion of the tax base as a means of tax reduction, preservation of property rights, fair and equal treatment of

all residents, and less government instead of more. She said that while she’s wary of over-restrictive preservationist land use rules, and she prefers “sculptured development” that would maintain the character of the town but yet find areas that would be conducive to commercial or industrial development by providing easy access as well as water and sewer utilities, and establishing a friendly approval process for local housing and commercial developers. She indicated that an expansion of the hamlet would make it easier for the town to work with developers and ap-

prove projects. Marcella currently owns Adirondack Real Estate LLC and operates Spruce Mountain Farm, both located in Warrensburg. She noted that her decades of experience in negotiating commercial real estate transactions would be useful in promoting the development of Warrensburg. Marcella said this week she perceived no conflict connected with serving on both boards simultaneously, and that such an arrangement would serve taxpayers well, boosting communication between the school district and town government.

Dot & Johnstock fundraiser set for June 18 By Thom Randall STONY CREEK — The annual fundraiser held by Dot Bartell and John Fickel, long-time proprietors of the Stony Creek Inn, is set for 1 to 5 p.m. June 18.

Also featured at the event is an extensive silent auction with goods

flourished in the hills since the late 1970s — and has been a mainstay at the Stony Creek Inn since Bartell and Fickel have operated the inn. The fundraiser was launched by friends of Bartell and Fickel in 2008 when both were facing cancer treatments. Since then the duo have continued the event as an annual fundraiser for various charities, Bartell said. “The original Dot & Johnstock raised funds and hope for myself and my husband

Bolton’s prom, with James Bond theme, termed a success BOLTON — Bolton High School’s Class of 2012 held its prom this year at the Fort William Henry Hotel, and it featured a James Bond-inspired theme, “Tomorrow Never Dies.” The prom, as well as various pre- and post-prom activities, were termed as highly successful by event organizers, who thanked various volunteers and donors for their support. Under clear skies May 21, prom attendees gathered at the newly renovated Bolton town dock at Roger ’s Park for their grand march down the red carpet before boarding The Morgan, a replica of a 19th century touring boat. The use of the Morgan was donated by The Sagamore Resort. The Morgan transported students to the Steel Pier in Lake George, where they walked to Fort William Henry Hotel for hors d’oeuvres, a buffet dinner, and dancing until 11 p.m. Students were then bused back to the school for a postprom party, which lasted until 3 a.m. Maintaining the James Bond theme, the party was entitled “Casino Royale.” Entertainment One provided three rides: an obstacle course, a 22-foot double slide and a bungee run. There were also sumo suits for students to don and try sumo wrestling. The Bolton Volunteer Fire Co. lent the students their casino tables, which were put to use with rousing games of chance. The lobby in the gym was transformed

Bungee run and sumo suit competitions were held through the night, until the party ended at 3 p.m. The winners of those tournaments went home with the bigger prizes of the night. Also, random drawings were held for prizes including concert tickets to SPAC, a biplane ride through the high peaks, a parasail ride, kayak lessons, and much more. A pre-prom assembly May 20 featured guest speaker Larry Waimon, a retired police officer who crusades for traffic safety. He spoke to the students about the dangers of driving while under the influence, phoning and texting while driving, and other potentially destructive decisions. Melanie Persons, Parent Teacher Organization president, expressed thanks to the businesses and individuals who supported

the prom events, as well as Junior Class parents for their donation of themed baskets; the Bolton Volunteer Fire Co. for donating both cash and their Casino tables, the group’s Ladies Auxiliary for cash and hosting a brunch fundraiser; to The Sagamore Resort for providing the Morgan; to the ship’s personnel: Craig Clesceri and his crew; to Dave’s Market, Neuffer ’s Deli and to Frederick’s Restaurant for donating food; to the dozens of area businesses that donated prizes and gifts; to the Bolton Central staff including Ray Ciccarelli and Damian Switzer for their support, to chaperones Janell Egloff, Denise and Steve Clark; and to students who worked the casino tables: Brandon Dague, Ashley Truax, Kristy Schupp and Grace Cady.

BOLTON LANDING — Students at Bolton Central Schools are learning about Adirondack history and what it was like many years ago to live in the mountains, through an outreach program offered by the Adirondack Museum. Both high school and elementary students at Bolton Central are involved. The elementary students are learning about daily life

during the olden days in the Adirondacks, while the high schoolers are concentrating about more comprehensive aspects of the area’s history. On May 16, the youngest elementary students, in kindergarten and Pre-K classes, experienced a classroom presentation about farm life and the machines that were used to assist the farmer. This presentation, by Adirondack Museum Educator Jessica Rubin, followed up an earlier visit that

Pole vault from page 1 Hogan said that he was looking ahead to summer 2012 and beyond for repeat pole-vaulting events in Lake George, predicting that up 350 athletes would be participating in future years. Hogan and Consuelo said that for each athlete attending, three to seven others would be coming to Lake George, probably staying the weekend — which


means revenue for local businesses as well as Warren County. “As a unique and different new event, this is the type of thing we are looking for,” Consuelo said. Lake George Mayor Robert Blais also expressed enthusiasm for the event. “We hope the plans go through, and we anticipate that it will be a welcome addition to our summer events here,” he said.

Adirondack Journal - 5 to make Small Business Administration funds available to families in Thurman and northern Warren County whose properties suffered flood damage. Such money would come in the form of loans and competitive grants, based on need, he said. On May 28, virtually every road in Thurman experienced washouts due to persistent heavy rains, and several bridges were swept away. The flooding stranded 100 families or so, plus many properties were damaged, particularly driveways. Access to all but 12 to 15 families has since been restored, with town

Gibson noted that just days ago, the U.S. House of Representatives had passed a bill adding $800 million towards storm relief. “Clearly, there is need for relief here in Thurman,” he said. Gibson said he would be lobbying with the Obama administration

of Thurman and Warren County highway employees working long hours to restore at least one lane of traffic on local roadways. The Town Board has set a special meeting for 6 p.m. June 9 to discuss how to pay for road repairs. Gibson praised these highway employees and Supervisor Wood for their fast response and long hours of work. He also praised area residents for their efforts in assisting each other in the calamity. “I’m impressed with the leadership at the town and county level, and how neighbors reached out to help neighbors,” he said.

Unions should make concessions; gov’s should stop threatening layoffs


he ongoing power struggle between the New York state governor’s office and state workers’ unions must stop if we’re ever going to have a stable state workforce. In the past few years, the governors — David Paterson in 2009 and 2010 and now Andrew Cuomo — have threatened to lay off thousands of state workers in order to make up for multi-billion-dollar shortfalls in the state budgets. This year, with the budget actually passed on time, Gov. Cuomo has built a $450 million savings in the approved 2011-12 spending plan based on union concessions. It’s a brilliant move on his part and provides leverage with union contract negotiations. The governor will either get the concessions he wants or lay off about 9,800 state workers in order to achieve the self-imposed mandate to cut $450 million. Cuomo and Paterson have each met strong opposition by the powerful public employee unions, including Council 82, CSEA and PEF. Paterson and the unions came to an agreement in 2009, after several months of wrangling, in which the governor finally pledged not to lay off state workers. It was a welcome reprieve for employees. But it didn’t last long. Just before leaving office at the end of 2010, Paterson once again threatened layoffs. And now Cuomo has picked up that ball and is running with it, all the way to the end zone and $450 million in savings. But who is right? It’s a tough call. Overall, we’d rather see the unions make concessions and prevent layoffs. The sooner, the better. Unfortunately, members of Council 82 — a union representing SUNY police and uniformed DEC personnel — recently rejected a contract that called for a wage freeze and other givebacks. We hope other unions don’t follow suit. These unions traditionally act as though they can have their cake and eat it, too: keeping jobs while not making concessions. But we’re not sure Cuomo will capitulate as easily as Paterson did in 2009. The unions have run into a stone wall this time, and if they push the governor too hard, he’ll just start cutting jobs. “The clock is ticking” he recently told reporters. New York can’t afford to lose jobs. And our North Country communities — many of which rely on state employment — can’t afford more unemployment. The economy will suffer. More importantly, our family members and neighbors who work in these public positions will suffer.

It is often the low men on the totem pole that fall victim in these situations — with salaries that least impact tax dollars and a work ethic that surpasses their superiors. That just drives more of our young from the region. The bottom line is New York’s governors need to learn the consequences of their actions. They wield the layoff ax too easily during these contract negotiations, and they are causing more harm than is necessary. Who suffers? State workers, their families, and all citizens served by our state agencies. When the governor threatens layoffs, he puts in motion an agency-by-agency assessment of departments and divisions, listing them by priority. Sometimes, certain staff positions are targeted for potential layoffs. Yet nobody really knows who will be cut in the end, if anybody. So, logically, people get emotional. They start protecting themselves by seeking other employment “just in case.” Morale suffers tremendously through the entire state workforce. And, no matter how hard managers try to keep their employees on task, production suffers. It’s downright depressing. Sometimes people leave state jobs “just in case” and their positions are eliminated. And who wins? Certainly not taxpayers. As sure as tax time comes around every April, governors keep threatening layoffs. While the annual wave of job insecurity has undoubtedly weeded out some of the less productive state workers, it has also taken its toll on the majority of loyal, hardworking ones. We agree with Sen. Betty Little, R-Queensbury, that layoffs should be a last resort. Little’s spokesman, Dan MacEntee, recently spoke with this editorial board and told us that the senator hopes New York’s public unions can work successfully with the governor to help the state meet its budgetary goals during these tough economic times. We urge the union leaders and members to approve contracts that help save the state $450 million. And, we ask Gov. Cuomo, and all those who are elected governor in the future, to stop using the harmful negotiation tactic of threatening layoffs.

GUESTVIEWPOINT Tax cap doesn’t go far enough


n their desperate quest for something— anything—that might alleviate the property tax crisis, taxpayers are being led to believe Albany's proposed property tax cap is the answer to their prayers. Unfortunately, in a single-minded push for the cap, the current administration has discouraged debate and simply ignored many of the New Yorkers most overwhelmed by property taxes. They are the several hundred thousand residents already paying unsustainable, doubledigit percentages of their income in property tax. Those residents will get no relief from the cap. If you can’t afford your taxes today, you’re unlikely to find them more affordable when they keep rising each year, as the cap provides. Moreover, the cap’s proponents generally avoid explaining that the “tax cap” only caps the increase in tax levy -- not your tax bill. A two percent cap on the tax levy can translate into a double-digit increase in your individual bill in a given year, due to individual assessment changes, reapportionment of the tax levy, etc. Only the property tax relief measure known as a circuit breaker can help our most overburdened middle-class residents. Sometimes described as an “individual cap,” it effectively limits the net amount of household income most residents would have to pay in total property tax on their home by allowing a state income tax credit for part of the property tax paid over a designated percentage of income, usually in the six to nine percent range. Renters, who pay taxes indirectly through the landlord, may also qualify. Bipartisan legislation we support (S912,

Letters to the Editor

Denton Publications, Inc.

We’re more than a newspaper, We’re a community service.

A5542) would initially cover families with household incomes up to $100,000 ($250,000 when fully phased in) and is urgent to save homes and to help stem the middle-class flight from our state. Legislation just introduced (S4171, A7673) provides a responsible blueprint for state funding of the circuit breaker in our austere fiscal environment. While a circuit breaker does not reduce spending, it will not lead to higher local budgets as STAR is thought to have done. That’s because of the way the circuit breaker benefit is structured and because the credit would cover only 70 percent of the property tax paid above the income percentage. The beneficiary’s 30 percent “co-pay” would ensure continued vigilance against budget creep. Proponents of the tax cap argue that the cap will limit spending. That may happen, depending largely on local situations. The limit may end up as a help or a hindrance, depending on your point of view and the impact on services you may need or want. But whatever merit one perceives in a cap, it is misleading to portray it as “property tax relief” when it will only increase property taxes. More and more New Yorkers are expressing concern over the drawbacks and limitations of a cap, especially without mandate relief and a circuit breaker. Albany should broaden the dialogue in the remaining days of the legislative session and enact a more comprehensive solution to the property tax crisis.

Thank you for the excellent coverage you recently provided for the tree planting ceremony in honor of Courtney Mae Swinton, who ended her life a little more than a year ago. Sadly, our local daily newspaper chose to not cover the event. The statistics about teen suicide are alarming. But statistics, by their very nature, are cold and unfeeling. At this moment, there are many youth who are stressed and in pain, and who are contemplating suicide to relieve that pain. Many are not aware of other options available to them. As we reach out to these youth with hotlines, crisis counselors, and memorial ceremonies for the community, it is no less important that we also introspect about what we might unwittingly be doing to cause or increase their pain. Are we, as parents, really listening to our children, or do we lecture them instead? Are we too accepting of the schools eliminating the primary means of stress reduction for our kids — art, music and sports — in the name of budget cuts? Shouldn’t we be more politically ac-

tive, demanding that tax loopholes for the wealthy corporations be dropped, farm subsidies for McDonald’s and Kentucky Fried Chicken (neither have a farm) be eliminated, government policies that have resulted in 5 percent of the population holding 95 percent of the money in this country be changed — all so that there will be enough money for our schools and less poverty, which is a major stressor on parents and their children? Are we so accepting of our children being given psychotropic medication when they are often mis-diagnosed with emotional disorders? More than ever, we need to advocate for our children, both in their education and in the health care they receive. Let that be Courtney Mae’s legacy. May no teen ever again be labeled ADHD because they can’t “sit still” for hours at a time in class without an energy-releasing break. May we start asking — no, demanding — that authorities find out why my friend’s long-term detention home for boys (a facility that houses and educates youth who are court-mandated to be there because of truancy, aggression, depression), scored 90 percent on the regents — higher than most of our “normal population” schools. Courtney Mae is not, by any measure, the only child we have lost to the pressures we place on our youth. It is a

sign of strength — of psychic stability — for adults to be able to search their souls, and advocate for change. For those who are not sure how to fight these battles, contact me at: or call 636-9653. And for any young person who wants to talk to a caring and non-judgmental person, I am here for you, day or night. We are all in this together and, as a group, we have the power to elicit change. We owe at least that to our kids. It really does “take a village to raise a child.” Irv West Thurman

It’s our duty to participate in local government To the Adirondack Journal: In the bygone year of 1940 Broadway was awakening to the musical “Pal Joey.” In one part of the score, lyricist Lorenz Hart penned the words “bewitched, bothered, and bewildered.” The Town of Lake George is now experiencing an off-Broadway rebirth of Hart’s sentiments. Town Supervisor Frank McCoy is “mistaken, frazzled and confused.”(These are his words, not mine.) See LOCAL GOVERNMENT, page 7

June 11, 2011

•100 Years Ago - June 1911• Big game in town The North Creek High School baseball team is coming to Warrensburgh Saturday, June 10, 1911 to hand a “goose egg” to our local Maplewood team. They depend mostly upon their clever left-handed twirler, Stone, to deliver the said egg. Once already this season Stone struck out 22 men in onetwo-three order. He hopes to repeat the performance here in our town but the Maplewood boys say, “Nay, nay, not for us.” Stewart “Tootie“ Farrar is pitching the ball and his support is right behind him.

Eternal rest ends suffering

From its pain-racked tenement of clay, death released the soul of Mrs. Sarah Thomas on June 6, 1911. The grim reaper, so universally dreaded, was welcomed by the weary sufferer who was well-prepared and longed for the eternal rest which the Master she had faithfully served has promised his servants. Mrs. Thomas was taken ill in February of this year and has been constantly been getting worse, never leaving her bed, suffering from pleurisy and other complications. (Note: Whenever I enter the Warrensburg Senior Citizen Center house I always feel the presence of this lady for whom the house was built in 1871 by her loving husband, Miles Thomas.) Sarah Brown was born in Bolton, April 12, 1829 and was the daughter of Caleb Brown,

who was born in Warrensburgh in 1788 and died in 1876. His wife died at the age of 89. Sarah Brown was married on July 15, 1849 to Miles Thomas, a former Bolton school teacher who later became a prominent Warrensburgh merchant. They had two sons, Albert H. and Charles A. Thomas. Charles, age 32 years, died Dec. 31, 1885 and his son, Harry Thomas, age 23 years, died in 1900. Charles’ widow, Ella Fuller went on to marry local banker, Lewis W. Emerson. Miles Thomas died Aug. 14, 1886 and Sarah went on living in her beloved home with her son, Albert and his family until her painful death. Her funeral was held in this historic house June 9, 1911, the day she was taken to the Warrensburgh cemetery. She was the great-grandmother of state Assemblyman Harry A. Reoux of Warrensburgh.

Prominent couple married

The beautiful home of Mrs. C. Fred Wheeler on Fourth Avenue was the scene of the first brilliant Warrensburgh wedding of the season on June 7, 1911. In the presence of a happy gathering of relatives, Miss Adele Wheeler became the bride of Bertram Elwood Murray, one of Warrensburgh’s most popular young men. They were married in a room made gay with many flowers in front of the big bay window. Mrs. Robert L. Carter played the wedding march and pretty little Caroline Wheeler was the flower girl. The Rev. W.S. Warren of the Baptist Church conducted the ceremony. Miss Wheeler wore a handsome gown of ivory Duchess lace. She carried a bouquet of white

roses and lilies of the valley. Murray is the Warren County superintendent of highways and the son of Warrensburgh Postmaster Robert Murray. After their honeymoon, the happy couple will live on Fourth Avenue.

Civil War veterans gather

Captain M. N. Dickinson of Warrensburgh left June 7, 1911 for Niagara Falls to attend the state encampment of the Grand Army of the Republic. The captain has been present at every annual state encampment since 1885. (Note: The remarkable life and times of Captain Myron Nelson Dickinson, born in 1829, was detailed in this column in April 2, 2011.)

Death in the news

Mary Ronan, 43, wife of Timothy Murphy of Wevertown, died at her home June 3, 1911. She is survived by her husband, two daughters, Annie and Helen and two sons, Francis and James. She was buried in the Catholic cemetery in North Creek. Professor W.H.S. Hanks, 80, one of the oldest teachers of Warren County schools, a former resident of Stony Creek, Thurman and Warrensburgh, in that order, died June 5, 1911 in Corinth. He taught 56 terms of school in this county. He was a veteran of the Civil War.

Man buys new Buick

W.P. Harris of Lake George has bought a brand new four-passenger Buick automobile.

(Note: The love of my life, outside of Warrensburgh history, has always been turn-ofthe-century automobiles. It was my good fortune to marry an automobile dealer who had that same passion and sold many of them over the 47 years while in business.) A four-passenger 1911 McLaughlin-Buick touring car with a bonnet on the back end to put up when it rained was a young boy’s dream and a horse’s nightmare. It had 18 to 22 horse power and held 10.5 gallons of Imperial gasoline. There were two speeds forward and one in reverse. The price was $1,275 which included an oil tail lamp, oil side lamps and gas head lamps. A cheaper model, without all the extras, sold for $1,135. It was a working man’s automobile. Around the same time, the Honorable Lewis W. Emerson of Warrensburgh purchased a new 1911, seven passenger, 50 horsepower Welch-Betroit automobile, a “machine” befitting a wealthy banker.

News roundabout

At noon June 7, 1911, the long-hoped-for and much-needed rain was pouring from the clouds and feeding the thirsty earth. The new automobile stage is expected to arrive in Newcomb this month with George Shaw as chauffeur. Herbert Morehouse of Warrensburgh has a good Ford runabout in good repair which he will sell cheap for cash. The Starbuck brothers have two fresh cows, six and eight years old, in good condition for sale in Chestertown. Dr. Lee Somerville of North Creek has 500 bushels of buck wheat seed for sale for 75 cents a bushel. Readers are welcome to contact Adirondack Journal correspondent Jean Hadden at or 623-2210.

McCoy, Kissane to run for Lake George supervisor post Tim Kissane throws hat in ring LAKE GEORGE — Tim Kissane, a local motel owner and sports coach, has announced his candidacy for the position of Lake George supervisor. Kissane, owner of the Fran Cove motel and assistant basketball coach at Lake George High School, said that if elected, his top objectives would be seeking consolidation of municipal services and keeping taxes down. Kissane and his wife Linda have owned Fran Cove since 2000. They owned the Blue Moon Motel from 1984 to 1999. In addition, Kissane’s background includes work as an insurance broker, for Travelers and for the Lawrence Group of Schenectady.

He said his business experience would be helpful in managing the town’s finances and operations. Kissane is an Albany native, but he has lived about three decades in Lake George. “After 28 years here, I have a good feel for the town,” he said. Kissane said he supports controlled growth in the town. “Development needs to be accomplished an orderly, ecologically sensitive manner that protects the lake,” he said. He said he is now involved about learning more about local issues. “I just want to get into the democratic process,” he said. He’ll be facing current Supervisor Frank McCoy in the September primary.

Under Construction

Frank McCoy seeks re-election LAKE GEORGE — Lake George Town Supervisor Frank McCoy recently announced his intention to seek re-election for a twoyear term. In declaring his candidacy, McCoy cited his achievements during his first term as supervisor, noting that he and the board had maintained an open government, had actively sought input on issues from town citizens, and worked hard to establish fiscal responsibility. McCoy said his accomplishments included the fact that he lowered taxes in his first term of office and launched an effort to build up the town’s surplus. Other accomplishments, he said, include saving the taxpayers $211,000 on the West

Brook/Gaslight Village project by exiting the municipal partnership that underwrites the project’s expenses. He also noted that he worked hard along with other area officials to obtain fee concessions from the state Department of Environmental Conservation — to keep the Americade motorcycle rally in Lake George for another five years. Additional achievements McCoy cited include being the first community in the Lake George watershed to pass a ban on the use of phosphorus fertilizer; and enacting the Sex Offender Law to protect out-of-town guests staying at local accommodations from potential predators. If re-elected, McCoy said he hopes to build on his accomplishments, minimize taxes and boost the quality of life locally.

Citizen of the Year: Whalen to be honored for achievements By Thom Randall WARRENSBURG — More than a quarter-century ago, a local woman had a dream for Warrensburg, a town steeped in historic architecture, but was at that time

moving into the future with only a handful of people treasuring the past. Teresa Whalen envisioned the town of Warrensburg as embracing values and the ambiance of a more gracious age, reflecting traditional values of community and warm bond between neighbors. Then rather than merely

talking about her aims, she worked tirelessly to accomplish them. Since 1984, Whalen has been deeply involved in various projects in Warrensburg, concentrating on beautification, historic preservation, lifestyle sustainability and enriching the local fabric of life. This year, for her vision,

persistence and accomplishments, she’s been named “Citizen of the Year” for 2011 by the Warrensburg Chamber of Commerce. Whalen will be honored at a congratulatory 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. 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 — reflecting the activities of bygone years. During the first few years, skeptics thought it would flounder. But despite various challenges, she worked year after year to make it not only survive, but flourish. The event, now a treasured local tradition, draws hundreds annually to various venues and retail shops in town. In 1998, she and other members of Warrensburg Beautification 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 local produce, flowers, organic meats, baked goods crafts and specialty goods.

Skeptics also though this wouldn’t survive its first few years. But it’s enjoying its 14th season, after developing into a vibrant popular market with a gazebo, landscaping, rest room and hundreds of visitors weekly. This is not all. Whalen and other Warrensburgh Beautification stalwarts worked on developing seven town parks along the Schroon River, and obtained state grants for four of them. 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. Whalen’s most influential work, however, may have been in historic preserva-

tion. 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 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. Our congratulations to Teresa Whalen for all her accomplishments through the years, — for embracing history and enriching the fabric of life here, as well as having a vital role in creating new Warrensburg traditions that will be treasured for generations to come.

Around the Region

Tourist trains to run by July By John Grybos NORTH CREEK — Passenger train service, including sightseeing excursions with dome cars, are expected to be operational by July 1 on the Warren County railway — with three trains running daily between North Creek and Saratoga Springs. Sarah Munley, director of marketing for Iowa Pacific Holdings LLC, the new operator of the county railroad, delivered this news at a gathering June 1 of area business and tourism representatives. Munley said this open forum, held at the Copperfield Inn, was to seek marketing advice from local business owners and residents for Iowa Pacific Holdings’ inaugural year running the railway, which is expected to include freight runs and ski trips. “This all came together a little hastily,” Munley said, adding that Iowa Pacific is still trying to catch up on advertising for the summer season. The contract between Warren County and Iowa Pacific was signed in April, several months later than both the company and area officials had anticipated. Munley presented schedules and outlined the equipment to be used. The trains will include two dome cars that hold 72 passengers each, equipped with dining tables and offer tableside food service in upcoming years. Other coach cars will resemble standard Amtrak passenger cars, with food available but no seat-side service. Hoped-for dinner service will not be a part of this year ’s plans, Munley said. Other rail lines operated by Iowa Pacific offer the option, and the company has declared plans to introduce regular dining excursions. The railway will offer three lines operating Thursday through Monday through rural Warren County along the Hudson River; they are titled the Hudson, the Merganser and the New York Express. The Hudson will run from North Creek to Saratoga Springs. The Merganser will run from North Creek to Hadley in the afternoon. The New York Express will make the North Creek to Saratoga Springs run in the early morning and late evening. Fares will be $19 for an all-day adult coach pass, and $40 for an all-day adult dome pass. Officials and community members from Hamilton and Warren counties filled most of the available seating in the Copperfield’s ballroom. Kate Johnson, tourism director for Warren County, said she wants to get information about the railroad out as quickly as possible while the tourism

North Creek train station season is ramping up. Tanya Brand, Johnson’s assistant, said the railway is a great attraction for bus tours that appeal to older adventurers. “Seniors love rails and sails,” Brand said, noting that train travel is a great attraction for people who don’t do much walking but enjoy sightseeing. Cliff Welz, who was operations manager for the county railway through December, said his company had invested a lot of money into the railroad’s operation over 12 years, but its importance to the community can’t just be measured in revenue. “I don’t think there’s any excursion railroad in the U.S. that makes money,” Welz said. “It’s more a labor of love.” Welz, and dozens of other area tourism officials, say the tourist railroad is an attraction that draws in tourists who spend money at area restaurants, stores, and lodging enterprises , important revenue for business owners, residents and local government. Munley said tourists will be taking trips oriented initially on sightseeing, with ski trains, dining trips and special rail events being introduced later. Crucial to the expanded services will be connections between the SaratogaNorth Creek railway with Amtrak service in Saratoga Springs, Rensselaer, New York City and Vermont. These four connections have been detailed in Iowa Pacific’s proposals for the railway, endorsed enthusiastically this year by county supervisors. Helen Miner from the Depot Museum said she has a daughter in North Carolina who can’t wait to visit by train. Miner also said she’s excited by the prospect of visiting Manhattan on the

rail, and hopes that Manhattanites will be just as excited to reach North Creek without having to get behind the wheel of a car. Munley said Iowa Pacific is looking into providing a way for outdoor adventurers to bring their larger gear, like bikes and kayaks, on board for excursions into the mountains. Iowa Pacific will be cross-promoting the Saratoga-North Creek service on other scenic rail lines in the U.S. Munley said, and they’ll be making consignment tickets available through area stores. Also, Iowa Pacific is developing a website that Munley said would crosspromote local businesses while helping potential train passengers plan a trip. Warren County’s contract with Iowa Pacific guarantees local taxpayers an income of $81,958 to $190,000 — six percent of the rail line's gross revenues — depending on the success of the rail service. In the agreement, Iowa Pacific Holdings pledges to operate at least 100 round-trip passenger trains from May to October, and a minimum of 30 ski trains and at least 50 dining excursions. Perky Granger, an events planner and publicist in Thurman, said she and others in Thurman are devising ways to cross-promote and incorporate train service with events in her town, like the Fall Farm Tour. “We are impressed with the new folks and their expanded schedule,” she said. “It will be a whole new experience for the communities and for the passengers who ride.” (Adirondack Journal Editor Thom Randall contributed to this report.)

County treasurer to retire, son endorsed for post By Jon Hochschartner & John Grybos

QUEENSBURY — Local high school business teacher Michael O’Keefe gained the endorsement this week in his candidacy for Warren County treasurer from the county Democratic Committee. O’Keefe is the son of present Warren County Treasurer Frank O’Keefe, who has announced his intent to retire at the year ’s end following 12 years in the post. Frank has said he fully supports his son’s candidacy for the four-year position. Dennis Tarantino, Michael’s campaign manager, said Michael O’Keefe has the qualifications and character to tackle the treasurer ’s job. “He’s got the intelligence,” Tarantino said. “He’s got the ability to learn the position.” The younger O’Keefe has spent the past 15 years teaching business courses at Fort Edward High School. He holds a Bachelor ’s degree from SUNY Geneseo in Business Management and a Master ’s Degree in teaching. While he has never held elected office, Michael said he has held the position of president of the Glen Lake Protective Association, a volunteer organization of about 200 members. That experience has helped prepare him for an elected post, he said. If elected, Michael said he would resign his teaching position. “There’s not enough time in the daylight hours to do both (jobs),” he said.

Tarantino said Michael has learned a lot relevant to the position on his own, but acknowledged he will need some on the job training as well, most likely with guidance from his father. The endorsement of the Warren County Democratic Committee was recommended by the Queensbury Democratic Committee, which also endorsed him. The Warren County treasurer, while not a policy maker, handles $35 million annually and manages an office of 11 people, according to Tarantino. The position paid $88,417. in 2011. The elder O’Keefe said the office had seen gains under his three-term leadership. He said he as responsible for investing more county money, rather than leaving it idle, to boost revenue for the county. Also, he has regularly provided financial statements and cash flow reports to county leaders and the public, unlike his predecessors. Frank said he helped implement a county-wide occupancy tax, which he said has brought in $21 million since its introduction. These accomplishments represent the type of track record he anticipates will continue under his son’s leadership, Frank said. In the coming days, Michael O’Keefe will be making many public appearances, meeting with business associations and hearing voters' concerns, Tarantino said. “I want him to meet people wherever he can,” Tarantino said. “We’re just getting off the ground. We’ve got a long time between now and election day.” A call to Warren County Republican Committee Chairman Michael Grasso was not returned by press time.

18 - Adirondack Journal from page 1 Since that year, the Heverns have developed deep friendships with the other Americaders, and they take interstate trips over the summer months nearly every year with about 20 Americaders from five other states, John Hevern said. “We wait for this rally all year,” he said.

Rally is an escape from routine

Behind the Heverns in line, Jeff and Sharon from Utica, riders in that city’s Revelation Riders, a Christian Motorcycle Association chapter, chatted with other waiting bikers. Staying nights in a Warrensburg campground, it was their fourth year to attend the rally, Sharon said. “Americade is how we spend our vacation — and it means no children for a week, no one to answer to,” she said. Jeff said he was looking forward to the various demonstration rides, with manufacturers offering rides on motorcycle brands he’d ordinarily never get his hands on. “Also, Americade is incredible because of the sight of so many bikes in one area — it’s just amazing, so beautiful,” he said.

Two Harley bikers were converted A few steps nearer to the registration table — about a half hour away — were longtime friends Ken Biles and Jeff Bettinger of

East Brunswick, N.J. The two were garbed in black leather and headwraps. For years, they’d been members of a local Harley riders’ group, but they got bored with taking short trips from one bar to another merely to drink, and they sought more adventure, Bettinger said. “At Americade, it’s all about riding, and everybody’s so friendly,” he said. “The staff is always asking how you are doing.” Staff volunteer Ray Vaillancourt of Delta, Ohio, waved Bettinger and Biles forward, and asked them how they were doing. The two took a few steps closer to the registration tables. Vaillancourt was wearing a double-billed baseball cap covered with Americade pins, representing all 29 years of the rally’s history. He’s volunteered every year since 1983. “It’s how I get away from my wife for a week,” he explained. “I plan to come here every year for the rest of my life.”

Bikers: ‘It’s all about the touring’

Tim and Kathy Leary, of Batavia, were 40 yards back in a dim hallway, moving forward a few feet every several minutes. They’ve attended Americade for the last 12 years, Tim Leary said. “Coming to Americade means once a year, we get to ride through these beautiful mountains,” he said. “And we’re not at work” chimed in Kathy, an office manager at an auto dealership. At the front of the line registering were

In a search, police found 4 Hydrocodone pills loose in his pocket, and .7 grams of marijuana in a Baggie in his possession, authorities said. • Thomas P.

John Tachuk of Salem, Mass. and Paul “Payo” Odierno of nearby Billerica. The two, both 67 years old, have been vacationing at Americade for 11 years, with a group of up to 16 of their friends, depending on the year, Odierno said. “It’s an incredible adrenaline rush of seeing all the bikes together in the village,” he said. Tachuk echoed the point. “It’s like Disney World for motorcyclists,” he said, noting that this year, he was taking a half-dozen mini-tours. “Also, people here are happy — they’re in vacation mode.”

More women riders at rally

Outside in the parking lot among hundreds of bikers, Kathy Starkey threw a leg over her Kawasaki Vulcan 1500 and her friend Barbara Smith mounted her Honda VTX 1300. The two, from central Massachusetts, are among the growing number of female bikers that attend Americade. Although women riding big, heavy cruising V-twin motorcycles is a fast-growing trend, Starkey’s been riding since 1971, when she owned a Triumph Bonneville 650 with an extended front end. She first got interested in motorcycles when her thenboyfriend was a Harley rider, she said.


Starkey said Americade meant finding the best and most vendors of motorcycle accessories and services in one place. The two have been attending for years, regardless of the weather. She pointed out various custom-painted vignettes of wolves and dream-catchers on her gas tank, side covers and fenders, praising the artists and intricate detail. “You can get anything you want done to your bike at Americade,” she said. “But more than that, it’s a beautiful place to ride, and the camaraderie is great — everybody’s family here, it doesn’t matter who you are or what you ride.” The two fired up their engines, emitting dual throbbing deep exhaust notes.

Leaving spouse at home

Directing traffic as Starkey and Smith rode past, volunteer Andy Dechard of Boonville, N.Y. said that when her retired, he decided to volunteer for the rally, so he’d never miss another. “This is better than any vacation, bar none,” he said, admitting he was skipping his 43rd wedding anniversary celebration with his wife, Colleen, who was back home. “This week is her vacation away from me,” he quipped.
