Village commits $1.6 million to water upgrades LAKE GEORGE — Village of Lake George officials have approved a resolution borrowing $1.6 million to improve the municipality’s water service to the residents of the town of Lake George. The Village’s water system services several areas outside the village. Slated to begin in the fall of 2010, the improvements will include the installation of two new water mains serving residents and businesses south of the village and on the east side of the lake as well. The new 16-inch mains will replace two 30year-old 12-inch mains that have been troublesome over the past several years, Village Mayor Robert Blais said. The large mains will increase the volume and pressure of water delivered to the east-side customers, particularly those at higher elevations., he said. The first phase of construction is to occur along Beach Road to the intersection of Route 9L and end near the American Legion Post. This will complete a loop towards the village line on state Rte. 9, increase fire flows and allow the state to install a fire sprinkler system at Million Dollar Beach. The second phase of the improvement project will include the installation of another new main from the Village line on Route 9 to Birch Avenue in the Town of Lake George. Both lines have experienced several water breaks over the past several years, particularly during the winter frost. For three years, Village officials have planned for those improvements and have built into the water rent increase the debt service, Blais said. They also have tried to coordinate the construction with the new work planned for Beach Road by Warren County which presently is slated to begin in spring 2011, Blais said. It is anticipated that all the work will be completed before spring 2011 and traffic will be maintained through the process. The system is being designed by Barton and Loguidice Engineers of Albany. Bids are expected to be opened in August and work slated to begin in October. Advertising the project for bid ahead of the road reconstruction project is expected to bring lower bids, boost opportunities for local contractors and minimize delays, Blais said.


Elvis fans, performers, descend on Lake George By Thom Randall

Rod Stewart impersonator Steve Bobbitt poses for a photo for fans while singing “Infatuation” during a Lake George Elvis Fest preview concert Thursday at Shepard Park. The three-day festival included performances by 66 Elvis tribute artists, as well as impersonators of Tom Jones, Buddy Holly, Johnny Cash and James Brown. Bobbitt charmed the Elvis fans Thursday with his gravelly voice, British mannerisms, and by prancing through the crowd. Photo by Thom Randall

By Thom Randall BOLTON LANDING — Wayne LaMothe, assistant director of Warren County Planning, has been through some hardship in recent years. In 2007, his wife Lisa was diagnosed with Mitochondrial Myopathy, a genetic, progressive condition that currently has no cure and can be terminal. Several years since then, she’s been undergoing treatment to re-

lieve the various debilitating symptoms, and the LaMothes have had to bankroll considerable expenses that health insurance companies wouldn’t cover. Then in 2009, county supervisors sought to eliminate his position until several county leaders pointed out to their peers that LaMothe had successfully brought many millions of dollars of grant money into the county over his 27 year tenure, to the benefit of taxpayers — besides being a productive, faithful employee.

LAKE GEORGE — Smiling to the raucous cheers from the audience, Elvis tribute artist Matt Joyce stepped off the stage June 3 in Shepard Park. Joyce’s performance, emulating Elvis’ signature snarling, his gritty voice, gyrating hip movements and fancy fifties’ footwork, drove the fans into a frenzy at the annual Lake George Elvis Festival's opening performance. The free preview concert drew an enthusiastic crowd of about 500. Joyce said the Elvis Festival lived up to its billing as the second-largest Elvis event outside of Memphis — and it did so with unmatched energy from the audience. “When the fans come here to Lake George for this weekend, they’re ready for it

But last week, he got a little lift from the stress he’s faced. LaMothe dropped into Stewart’s Shop convenience store in Lake George to buy gasoline, and bought a Take Five ticket via quick-pick method, as he does occasionally. Then in the May 28 drawing, his numbers won the jackpot of $46,251. On his home computer, LaMothe saw the results posted on the New York Lottery website, he said Tuesday.

E-mail hacked again, address changed I am again having problems in having my computer hacked. My email address book was invaded by a hacker, and letters were sent out to my correspondents claiming I was in London and needed money urgently to get home. I hope none of you responded to this scam. I wasn’t in London at all, and I haven’t been in a financial jam. Computers are quite a convenience, but when they are hacked like this, it’s a nightmare.

SATURDAY June 12, 2010


Village beefs up patrols for Americade week LAKE GEORGE — With the cooperation of the town of Lake George, village officials have decided to strengthen their police presence during the Americade week, Mayor Bob Blais said this week. Last year following the annual Americade rally, the village held a public meeting to discuss problems encountered with the large crowds, particularly on Friday and Saturday evenings. Several homeowners and business property owners spoke about the noise, disturbances and inconveniences associated with hosting the rally. Mayor Blais attributed the complaints to the large influx of non-Americaders that come to the village to party and be part of the rally itself. Traditionally the bars are filled to capacity and traffic congestion and parking create numerous problems for the local authorities. Several times in the past., Canada Street had to be blockaded by law enforcement to calm the large, rowdy crowds on open decks. All those attending the 2009 meeting agreed this was unacceptable and many suggestions were put forth, Blais said this week. “Knowing that the Sheriff ’s Office is stretched to the maximum and their budget has been trimmed as well, we decided to step up to the plate and invest in extra patrols for the weekend,” Mayor Blais said. Warren County Sheriff Bud York has agreed to dedicate one patrol to cover the village’s residential areas from Wednesday to Saturday. The Village has decided to also put

four officers on duty on Canada Street to assist the village’s Peace Officers on Friday and Saturday nights. These officers will be assigned to the residential areas of the Village during Americade week, as well as four additional foot patrolman in the business district. The additional cost for overtime will be approximately $4,000 and be shared by the Town and Village. The presence of extra deputies on Canada Street and in areas where residents have experienced problems in the past will help out some of the problems, Blais said. The deputies will augment all of the village’s eight Peace Officers, who will be on duty throughout the weekend, he said. “While the Americade Rally itself is a big economic boost for our businesses, the size and nature of the crowds on the weekend create many problems for our village,” the Mayor said. “This investment and cooperation of the Sheriff ’s Department should help to lessen some of the inconveniences of the past.”

•100 Years Ago – June, 1910• Crops stalled by weather, stagecoach rolling


rops are very late this season on account of the cold weather in May. Henry Ashe did, however, pick a mess of delicious green peas and dug early new potatoes from his garden. The city people are beginning to arrive. The stage auto between Pottersville and Riparius made its first trip this season on June 27 1910. Charlie Glassbrook of Chestertown has had his ChesterWarrensburgh stage painted and is in readiness for a brisk summer trade. He owns seven good stage horses.

Thurman desperado bushwhacked The notorious Alvin “Sam” Pasco of Thurman is in Glens Falls Hospital as the result of a bullet wound in his leg. He was shot early morning June 27, 1910 by someone in ambush behind a stone wall while walking along a road in that section of Thurman known as the Frost district. The shooting was evidently carefully planned. Pasco, who had been staying with Eugene Frost for the past three months, was in the habit of making an early morning trip from his boarding place to one of Frost’s lots where he was pasturing a yoke of steers and a couple of colts. At 5 o’clock a.m., Pasco was walking along one of the three roads that branch to the north above Ransom Wilsey’s place when a shot was fired and he fell to the ground, face downward. The bullet struck him in the right leg near the hip joint and came out near the groin. Pasco’s calls for help were heard by Myron Kenyon, living below Wilsey’s, who ran toward the distress calls when he met Pasco limping along. Edward Frost brought the wounded man to Warrensburgh and Dr. Griffin gave him temporary treatment after he had made a deposition before Justice Hodgson. Pasco walked from the doctor ’s office to board a trolly for Glens Falls to seek aid at the hospital. In his affirmed statement he said Ransom Wilsey shot him as he saw Wilsey walking toward his barn after the shooting with something in his hand, possibly a gun or a crowbar. Meanwhile, Ransom Wilsey, 63, later saying he knew nothing of all this, walked to Warrensburgh, intending to go to Glens Falls on the trolley and he was waiting on the Warren House porch (now Stewart’s Shop lot) when Sheriff T.J. Smith arrested him. Wilsey claimed to have no knowl-

edge of the shooting, saying that he had not fired a gun in 20 years and that he had no trouble with Pasco. Edward Potter, who heard the shot fired and Charles Baker, son of Eugene Baker, who stayed at Wilsey’s house the night before, were interviewed by the sheriff. The investigation will continue as soon as Pasco gets out of the hospital. Sam Pasco has been implicated in a lot of scrapes and has served time in the Albany Penitentiary and Dannemora Prison. He has a lot of enemies in the Thurman, Johnsburgh and Stony Creek area. (Note… Only five months earlier Lewis Olden had sworn out a warrant for Sam and had him charged with assault. Eight years later, after this incident, in April of 1918, he died from being shot in the back by a deputy sheriff when he was running from the law after he had shot and killed Orley Eldridge. Sam Pasco, whose legend lives on, is buried beneath a boulder in the Pasco Cemetery, Thurman.)

Benefactress restores history for all The west barracks at Fort Ticonderoga have been restored to appear as they did during theRevolutionary War and this June, 1910 the barracks will open as a museum. The barracks will contain the gun which was carried by Col. Ethan Allen when he demanded the surrender of the fort in 1775 “In the name of the great Jehovah and the Continental Congress.” There are also many other relics of the war on display. Mrs. Stephen H. Pell, in whose family has owned the property for many years, is bearing the expense of the restoration of the fort. Her summer home is on the property.

Recent deaths in the news Alfred L. Edwards, 74, of New York, died back in Feb. 23, 1910 at the home of Mrs. Ellen Gillingham in Athol. He was a lawyer and a man of exceptional literary ability, but he preferred to live a quiet life and therefore spent much of his time at the Gillingham farm house. Amelia D. Newcomb died April 21, 1910 of heart disease and dropsy at the home of Cynthia Haight, Hudson Street. She was the oldest resident in Warrensburgh, her age being 93 years and 21 days. She is survived by one daughter, Alma Bennett of Downey, Ca. (Note…Alma Bennett was the aunt of world famous avi-

ator Floyd Bennett. She died in California 17 days after her mother passed away.)

News around Warrensburgh Nelson DuFresne has sold his house and lot in Glens Falls and moved his family back to Warrensburgh. They are occupying David Rothschild’s house on King St. Mr. DuFresne is the superintendent of J.P. Baumann & Sons’ laundry at the local shirt factory in Warrensburgh. Fred R. Mixter is building a veranda with a bell gable on the east end of his residence on lower Main St., Warrensburgh. The roofed portico will be supported by iron pillars on rubble stone foundations, an attractive feature to the home. (Note: This is the stone building across from Warren Ford on Main St.) The spacious grounds surrounding Lewis Thomson’s new residence on upper Main St. are being graded under the superevision of R.J. Maloney of Glens Falls. (This residence is today the Cornerstone Victorian Bed and Breakfast.) W.E. Lawrence, a Glens Falls architect, was in town looking over the proposed new quarters of Warrensburgh Masonic Lodge in the Woodward block. The rooms will be handsomely appointed and modernly equipped. (Note: this brick building eventually burned and was later rebuilt.) Upon examination of complaints made by persons who have been bitten by a dog owned by Henry DeGrush, of lower Main Street, Justice Hodgson issued an order that the cross canine be killed.

Changing times One of the most flamboyant heros to ever grace the waters of Lake George was the Polish Count, Casimer S. Mankowski. He lived at Tallwoods in Bolton Landing. Speed boat racing was his greatest love and in 1913 he pushed his boat “Ankle Deep” up to an incredible 50 miles an hour. On May 22, 2010 during the Queen’s Boating Weekend on Lake George, the boat “Gun Smoke” reportedly reached a speed of 92 miles an hour. If the good count were alive today he would without a doubt already be making plans to break this record. Readers are welcome to contact Adirondack Journal correspondent Jean Hadden at or 623-2210

Bolton Central kindergartners marched in the recent Memorial Day Parade, dressed up as historical figures and carrying placards bearing their name. Roosevelt's Civilian Conservation Corps. Camp S-82, in the northeast corner of the Town of Bolton, housed as many as 200 men who spent their days planting trees, constructing trails and campsites, working on disease- eradication programs in the state's conifer forests, building erosion control devices along stream banks and along the shores of Lake George, and constructing buildings in parks and on the islands. Many CCC alumni married local women and spent their lives as active members of the Bolton Community. Author and historian Marty Podskoch will give a short Power Point presentation on the history, lore and legacy of the Conservation Corps camps in New York State. Marty is currently conducting research for a new book on the CCC in New York and Connecticut. For details on the reunion, contact Pat Babe of the Bolton Historical Museum at 644-9960, Megan Baker of the Bolton Free Library at 644 2233, or Ted Caldwell, Town Historian, at 644-2343.

Prevailing smoke worried local residents Smoke engulfed the region on May 31, and folks were calling neighbors trying to make sure everyone was okay. Many called 911 — and county emergency dispatchers said they received hundreds of calls on the smoke situation. The air was very cloudy and hazy. It’s hard to believe but all this smoke drifted down from forest fires in Quebec, Canada. News reports indicated early this week that the smoke might return to plague the eastern U.S., but apparently the weekend rain brought the 57 fires under control.

Oil firms need oversight To the editor: With the worst environmental disaster afoot in the Gulf, my heart tells me that this is an act that might well be considered terrorism. Personally, I do feel terrorized by the failings of the oversight which allowed that oil well to operate without all of the possible safety mechanisms in place. I call on our elected officials to stop playing patsy with the oil lobby and fund those clean-energyinitiatives that are out on the fringes of development — those ideas that the oil interests would like to see go away, and probably have paid for them to be thwarted. I ask my neighbors to sign the petition at to hold BP accountable financially for the mess; or the taxpayers will pay for their ineptitude. Kelly Baker Bolton Landing

Stony Creek pastor: Remember soldiers’ commitment to duty, love of family and nation By Carol LaGrasse STONY CREEK — In observance of their hometown’s traditional Memorial Day ceremonies, local citizens circled around a flag pole, a bed of colorful flowers, and four monuments commemorating the town’s history, heroes and veterans, Almost 100 residents and visitors listened solemnly as John Cronkhite of the William J. Varney American Legion Post of Lake Luzerne fired a salute of three rifle shots to close the ceeremonies held Monday at the Stony Creek town park. The reverent observance had begun with a parade, in which the Legion Post was the lead color guard. The beginning and closing of the memorial event exemplified the tight bond that makes possible much of community life in Adirondack small towns. A polite, appreciative round of applause followed the color guard’s procession, with Hugh Sonners bearing the flag. They were followed closely by the Stony Creek Volunteer Fire Company’s own color guard, with Dan Culver holding the flag aloft. A familiar Stony Creek face, John Mosher, with his wife Joann, could be seen driving inside the fire engine, with new member Dexter Baker at the helm of the company’s new ambulance. Joining them in the parade were personnel and vehicles from the Luzerne-Hadley Fire Department, the Thurman Volunteer Fire Company and the Thurman Emergency Squad. When the parade ended at the park, Stony Creek Town Supervisor Frank Thomas led the memorial observance. The message by Pastor Rex Fullam of the Knowlhurst Baptist Church, the only church remaining in Stony Creek, held the attention of all ages. Citing quotations from the Bible, Fullam called on the people to remember and emulate the love for family and country, and recall the sacrifice, the commitment to the cause of freedom, and the stalwart adherence to duty, even in the line of fire, of the men and women in the U.S. armed forces who died to preserve our way of life.

“It starts where we are,” pastor Fullam urged. “Let’s teach it, let’s practice it for the next generation.” Supervisor Thomas offered a brief inspiring message, fol-

lowed by the firing of the salute, the raising of the flag, and Taps. Afterwards, townsfolk conversed over hearty refreshments at the Stony Creek Town Hall.

SATURDAY June 12, 2010

Local history buffs named ‘Citizens of the Year’ by Warrensburg Chamber know what a glorious history Warrensburg has enjoyed for more than 200 years.” Without referring to a roster, Parisi mentioned a number of the local citizens who have invested considerable work in the revitalization process — Rosemary Maher, Rita Ferraro, Gary Ferraro, Peter Wood, Frank Bennett, John Hastings, Jackie Leonbruno, Paul Gilchrist, Barbara Whitford, Dana Wescott Mural, and Mary Lovendusky, Delbert Chambers and Bonnie Cleavland. Most all these people spent countless hours gathering, verifying and cataloguing thousands of artifacts, photographs, maps, quilts, postcards and books — putting some aside for restoration and preservation measures. Then, after considerable research, the volunteers helped design spaces and exhibits, and prepared narrative text and signage so people could best understand the context and significance of the artifacts. Then, the volunteers, primarily Historical Society members, constructed new exhibits. Parisi added that the town’s parks & recreation employees deserve credit for their work repairing and restoring the interior of the museum building. Wescott crafted the decorative trim on the Victorian porch setting in the museum, as well as building the children’s play table. Lovendusky, who restored the renowned

Historical Society members honored WARRENSBURG — For about six years, local history buffs have worked gathering artifacts — sorting, researching and and cataloguing them for posterity. Others have joined them in their work to re-invent the Warrensburgh Museum of Local History, constructing displays, exhibits and environments that will help generations to come fully comprehend day-to-day life in bygone days. Certainly, this is The refurbished museum was re- wonderful recognition opened last year to considerable acclaim, for the Historical Society but some visitors and the museum. might not have fully — Paul Gilchrist realized the many hours that went into the museum’s revival. But in recent weeks, because of a decision by the Warrensburg Chamber of Commerce, this work will not go unnoticed. The Chamber board of directors decided that the members of the Warrensburgh Historical Society should be named collective Citizens of the Year for their work, primarily on the museum, which the society officially took responsibility for in 2004. Historical Society President Paul Gilchrist said Tuesday the award was well-received by the society’s membership, now 216 strong. “Certainly, this is wonderful recognition for the Historical Society and the museum,” he said, adding it was appreciated that the Chamber of Commerce realized what society members have accomplished in the museum’s revitalization. Gilchrist said that dozens of people invested a lot of hours into refurbishing the museum. “Not long ago, the museum was a beehive of activity for a year or so, with 15 or more volunteers working at a time, several days per week, on renovating the facility,” he said. Museum Director Steve Parisi, and his wife Sandi Parisi, town historian, are among those who’ve invested thousands of hours into the work.

Parisi said Tuesday that it was very fitting that the Chamber bestowed the award on the members of the Warrensburgh Historical Society, as the Chambers’s very first Citizen of the Year award, in the late 1970s, was given to Isabel Cornell, founder of the museum. “The town has a wonderful history, and were pleased to be able to show it to both local people and tourists,” Parisi said, noting that the revitalized museum has sparked considerable enthusiasm from the many students — both highschool and elementary pupils — who have visited it this past year. “The work of the volunteers allows young people

Chamber From page 10 Bicentennial Mural on the side of the museum building, spend hundreds of hours painting the faux stonework of that Victorian porch. “It is gratifying that the hard work of all these people is being recognized,” Parisi said. Both Parisi and Gilchrist credited all the society members, and other townspeople, who have for years committed their support to preserving the town’s rich history. Warrensburg Chamber of Commerce President Cheryl Kenyon said the Historical Society had developed a substantial community asset in the Museum and deserved the recognition. “They’re doing a wonderful job,” she said, deferring credit for the Citizen of the Year decision to her board members, Dan West, Shawn Dempsey, Todd Trulli, Faith Buck, and Jo Piera.

Sheriffs’ group seeks donors for camp program QUEENSBURY — The New York State Sheriffs’ Association Institute began its annual Honorary Membership drive in Warren County this week, Sheriff Nathan "Bud" York has announced. The Institute, which is non-profit, provides training programs and services for all counties, when those programs and services would be otherwise unavailable or impractical. The Institute’s flagship program is the Sheriffs’ Summer Camp for children from families of limited income. The camp, in its 34th year, is located on Keuka Lake and 800 children from across the state attend each summer. The Institute pays the entire cost of the camp stay and transportation. Most children attending wouldn’t otherwise have an opportunity for vacation travel or a summer camp experience. The Sheriffs’ Camp program combines recreation and selfesteem development with activities designed to impart respect for laws and the men and women who enforce them. “In these difficult economic times we can not forget our youth who will not have the opportunity for a summer camp experience or a summer vacation,” Warren County Sheriff Bud York said in a prepared statement. Also, the Sheriffs’ Institute sponsors scholarships to Criminal Justice programs at state Community Colleges. Those interested in supporting the efforts of the Institute by becoming an Honorary Member should contact the Sheriff if they do not receive an invitation in the mail, or visit www.sheriffs to download an application.

Downtown Enhancement Committee moves forward toward goals Chester group to meet June 23 CHESTERTOWN — The Town of Chester Main Street Enhancement Committee will be holding an important meeting at 7 p.m. Wednesday June 23 at the Town Hall. The event includes a discussion of the comprehensive community survey now under development, plus a description and discussion of affordable housing. Jim Martin from the municipal architecture firm LA Group and Wayne LaMothe from Warren County Planning Department will be on hand to talk about the housing grant and the Main Street grants that have already been approved by the state. There will also be a discussion of the two new grants with implementation possibilities. The plan for Main Street will be formalized for presentation to the full Town Board on July 12. All downtown business owners and all Main Street Enhancement Committee members are urged to attend. For months, the Main Street Enhancement Committee has brainstormed plans to revitalize the downtown area.

In May, the group rallied in a major spruce-up of the American Legion Post No. 964 headquarters next to the Chester Municipal Center. This group of citizens has sought to reverse the recent trend of empty storefronts and neglected properties downtown . Initial objectives of the group are to repair sidewalks, install benches and trash receptacles, add up to 10 decorative streetlights, and plant trees. The effort is to be backed up by a $72,000 grant obtained recently through Warren County. Such improvements would boost the pedestrian experience and boost commerce and activity downtown, Committee leaders have said. Revitalization committee members said they would be trying to locate and apply for grants, whether it was for fixing up historic facades, or buying new furnaces for hard-to-heat commercial buildings with outdated heating equipment. High utility costs have been blamed for putting an unreasonable financial burden on shop owners, driving them out of business.

Warrensburg hosts first 7-on-7 football tournament Players boost skills in scrimmage By Thom Randall WARRENSBURG — Saturday, the town recreation fields off Library Avenue were busy with high school athletes — from as far away as Sydney, NY throwing footballs, and conducting defensive drills like lugging gridiron blocking sleds over a lengthy course. The action heralded Warrensburg High School’s first-ever Seven-on-Seven Football Scrimmage Tournament, an event intended to give a boost to football skills in the off-season and give coaches a close look at their developing team’s talent, coaches said Saturday. Involved in the rotating matchups were athletes from grades 8 through 11 who are likely to be serving on their respective school’s varsity team. The high schools participating in Warrensburg’s Seven-on-Seven event were: Corinth, Salem, Stillwater, Fort Edward, Hoosic Valley, Cambridge and Sidney Central — a school near Oneonta which is about two hours and 40 minutes away. Sydney Central Coach Jeff Matthews said his team was enthusiastic about attending, despite a five-hour round trip to participate. “To be able to get together with coaches and players that love football as much as we do, is a great opportunity,” he said., noting that he had “jumped” at the opportunity to participate after a similar scrimmage in Massachusetts was cancelled. “Also, this field is a great place to practice — with the mountains and beautiful scenery in the background.” For the offensive players’ practice, a seven-member squad would attempt to complete pass plays under the pressure of the opponent’s defense. Receivers catching the ball can run with it, but the forward progress is stopped when a defender touches the receiver. Off-season team practice with tackling is not permitted under high-school athletic rules. While their offensive counterparts were running pass plays, linemen were dragging blocking sleds or flipping gi-

ant loader tires across a nearby field. Others were running while lugging 50-pound bags of potatoes. Burgher Assistant Coach Rex Reynolds watched his squad of linemen lose a tug-of war battle against their counterparts from Stillwater, who averaged more than 250 pounds apiece. “This may inspire them to spend some time in the weight room,” Reynolds quipped.

Green groups’ money spent on lobbying decreases By Jon Alexander ALBANY — The amount of money spent by two Adirondack green groups on lobbying lawmakers in Albany dropped substantially last year, while the region’s largest environmental organization ticked up slightly. According to a report issued recently by the state Commission on Public Integrity, the Adirondack Council and the Adirondack Mountain Club both spent significantly less cash on state lobbying efforts in 2009 relative to 2008. But Council Spokesman John Sheehan said last week that it wasn’t a lack of issues or money that drove his organization’s decline in spending — it was instead the infamous sixweek state Senate coup in the summer of 2009. “It’s just a reflection that for a while there wasn’t much we could actually do because there was nobody to talk to,” Sheehan said. “The Assembly was doing a couple of things,

but we couldn’t expect to get two house support on anything so the whole place ground to a halt for about six weeks last summer.” In 2009, the Adirondack Council spent $18,134 – a 23 percent drop from 2008 – on its Albany lobbying efforts. It employs in-house staff instead of outside contractors, which is common among many other organizations. For only the second time since 1979, the total amount spent to lobby Albany lawmakers dropped in 2009, with special interests spending $167.8 million in the state Capital. This figure is a 3.5 percent drop from 2008, a fact the commission suggests may be related to the economy. However, Sheehan said that’s not the case at the Council. “It may have something to do with people being less able to afford lobbyists, but ours are staff members so it’s not like we have to sign a contract with a firm that will charge us an arm and a leg to do it,” Sheehan said. “These are individuals who are working for us on other issues if they aren’t lob-

bying.” The Adirondack Mountain Club also spent less in 2009, putting $55,614 toward its cause. This figure represents a 19 percent drop from 2008. Not surprisingly, the largest environmental organization in the region also expended the most lobbying dollars. The Nature Conservancy increased its spending 3 percent, topping off at $166,596. The vast majority, over $130,000, went toward compensating lobbying personnel, according to the report. The Nature Conservancy has been trying to finalize several Adirondack land deals with the state for years. The environmental lobbying effort, however, was dwarfed by other special interests. Health and Mental Health organizations topped the list of lobbying expenditures, spending $30.6 million in 2009, followed by the real estate and construction sector at $22.6 million.

An opening reception for the exhibition took place May 28 at the North Elba-Lake Placid Historical Museum.The exhibit moved 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., curator Menconeri said. "I was impressed by the quality of everyone's work," she 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.”

Gillibrand: halt bank fees for paper statements By Chris Morris WASHINGTON D.C. — While the U.S. Senate continues to draft legislation aimed at protecting taxpayers from banks and lenders, Sen.Kirsten Gillibrand is looking to protect North Country families from bank fees. In a statement released by Gillibrand’s office, the De-

mocratic senator noted that many banks nationwide are introducing fees for customers who don’t switch to paperless electronic billing. Gillibrand says this punishes approximately 2 million New York households that don’t have access to the Internet. In the North Country alone, an estimated 60,000 households aren’t hooked up to the web.

“Thousands of seniors and families in this area do not have adequate access to the Internet,” Gillibrand said. “Thousands more are simply not comfortable reviewing their finances electronically.” She adds New Yorkers shouldn’t be punished for wanting to receive bank statements in the mail. “My legislation will make sure that financial institutions cannot take advantage

of Seniors or struggling families by imposing more fees,” Gillibrand said. The amendment to the financial regulatory reform bill would empower the newly-created Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to prohibit banks from charging consumers fees for accessing paper statements.

By Jon Alexander ALBANY — Gov. David Paterson signed a bill into law recently that allows weapons producers with federal, state and local government contracts to possess and manufacture gun silencers. Upstate Republican Jim Seward called the legislation a job-creation bill. He hopes the lessening of the gun silencer restrictions will bring even more jobs to the Herkimer-based Remington Arms plant in his district. “There are close to 1,000 jobs at that plant and we hope to have more. The passage of this legislation will help in that effort,” Seward said. “It’s a jobs bill and we’re very pleased to see its passage.” Sponsored in the senate by Republican Dale Volker, the bill was unanimously adopted April 14 in the state’s upper house. Prior to the legislation’s passage, weapon manufacturers couldn’t possess, research, or develop gun silencers. The Remington plant is now capable of bidding on a U.S. Department of Defense contract that could be worth up to $250 million. State law still precludes private citizens from owning or possessing a silencer.

Budget crisis threatens fire towers APA to consider alternatives By Jon Alexander ALBANY — The state budget crisis could pose a threat to the fire towers atop Hurricane and St. Regis mountains, even as the Adirondack Park Agency considers ways to allow the historic structures to remain standing. The APA Board of Commissioners’ State Land Committee decided unanimously May 13 to move forward with public hearings regarding potential classification alternatives that could allow the towers to stay. But even if APA finds a solution to the problem in the coming months,the fire towers’ continued existence is anything but a sure bet — because the towers are the property of the state Department of Environmental Conservation, according to DEC Region 5 Chief Forester Tom Martin. “The department has the care, custody and control of the Forest Preserve and the facilities on it,” he said. “At one time there were 52 towers in the park and for management reasons the department removed a bunch of them. “ He said that despite the fact towers are allowed in certain classifications, DEC removed them anyway. Assuming the figures from Gov. David Paterson’s executive budget remain unchanged, DEC is poised to lose over 30 percent of its funding, compared to the 2009-10 budget.

Over the last two years, the DEC’s budget allocation for supplies and contracting has plummeted 70 percent. Both the Hurricane and St. Regis towers are in relative disrepair, and state officials estimate a single restoration could cost $50,000. Continued maintenance costs would also be a likely expense. And Martin said cost is surely an issue. “The biggest concern today are the budget issues and the long-term implications of the costs of these things,” he said. “We would certainly look to private groups and local governments to assist us with tower restoration as they have with towers throughout the park.” Various expenses associated with maintenance and repair are substantial, he said, noting that helicopters, employed to transport labor and supplies to the sites, cost $1,500 per hour to operate. Several of the remaining fire towers in the Adirondacks do have friends groups and some contribute money and labor to the cause, but DEC officials caution that over the longterm, the state ends up footing much of the bill. The three-pronged APA proposal, which is open for public comment, could see the footprints of the towers classified as either historic or primitive. Under the primitive designation, the towers would not be restored and would not allow public access, but would remain at their current location. However, if classified as historic, the state would carry a responsibility to restore and maintain the towers in working

condition to allow public access. The third option is no action at all, and would result in the removal of the towers in accordance with the state Land Master Plan. APA Commissioner Dick Booth said that given the slumping economy, he would like to see a fourth option that wouldn’t require the state to make a financial commitment. “We could put a postage stamp around a historic resource, recognize it’s there, the state would not commit resource to managing it,” Booth said. “It would become part of the Forest Preserve and eventually deteriorate back into the landscape.” DEC has removed towers that were in compliance with a SLMP designation, citing the prohibitive cost of restoration or maintenance. Over 85 percent of the public comment received this year by DEC, in written and oral form, expressed support of retaining the fire towers. Proponents of keeping the towers consider them an important part of the region’s cultural history. The opposition counters that they are in violation of the SLMP.

ADIRONDACK JOURNAL - 17 the ones that are left have higher survival rates.” The researchers also conceded that the practice of catch and release fishing might significantly reduce any negative impact of fishing off bass nests during the spawn.

Bassin’s biggest mistakes

Bass: Not really a thing of beauty


here is a famous quote attributed to an old Montana flyfishing guide which goes something like: “Trout don’t live in no ugly places.” While trout waters almost always seem to possess a high degree of water clarity, scenic beauty and cool temperatures, the opposite holds true for bass. Bass live and thrive in some of the ugliest waters known to man. When I think of bass waters, descriptive terms such as dark, murky, warm, weedy and nasty come to mind. After all, bass are a warm water species renowned for seeking structure. Structure is an accepted euphemism for “lots of crap in the water to get snagged on.” It’s bass crap, the old pilings, thick weeds, downed trees, roots and stumps, rocky shoals, cribbing or anything that has sunk to the bottom of a lake. Find it and you’ll likely find bass. Bass remain the most popular game fish in the country, pursued by the common man. They are also the most widely distributed fish species in the United States, which now shares the World Record for bass with Japan, of all places. Bass go hand in hand with Skoal, Budweiser and NASCAR. In fact, I’ve been told that bass fishermen are really just off-season snowmobilers that couldn’t get tickets to NASCAR. We’re not talking about speckled beauties or iridescent rainbows that fall prey to tiny flies cast on delicate leaders and fine tippets. We’re talking about hogs, big ol' bucket-mouthed, tackle bustin’ monsters with a bad attitude, dude! Bass are the type of fish that require a baitcasting reel

spooled with Razor Wire, attached to a rod so stiff it could be used for a pry bar in a pinch. Bass can be fished from shore with a simple minnow and a bobber or out of a sparkling bass boat that goes 75 mph and is decked out with a collection of angling gizmos that cost more than my house. In the Adirondacks, bass are possibly the most overlooked of all our angling resources. Bass inhabit more waters than trout, hey are easy to catch, great to fight and make a fine meal. They are simply a fun and entertaining species. Although bass season doesn’t officially open until the third Saturday in June, in New York, the species can now be taken year ‘round, on a catch and release basis. And while there have been claims that taking bass off their spawn beds harms the population, recent research proves otherwise. A University of Florida (UF) study, published in Transactions of the American Fisheries Society magazine, indicates otherwise. “We found that in most cases, spawning area closures won’t improve bass populations,” explained co-author Mike Allen, a fisheries professor with UF’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. “If you lose some nests,

Whether practicing catch and release or catch and eat, anglers should be aware of the most common mistakes of bass fishing. Possibly the most common error is an ill prepared fishing outfit. Anglers should check rod guides for nicks and abrasions, oil the reel and set the drag properly as bass are one of the most unforgiving of all freshwater game fish and consistently challenge both the angler ’s skill and the quality of their equipment. Always start the new season by respooling with fresh line, and check the line’s expiration date before purchasing it. Another common error is a lack of patience, casting and retrieving too fast. Remember, occasionally bass must to be coaxed into taking your bait, give them time. Give the lure or bait action. Bass are a major predator and must be induced to attack. If you aren’t getting strikes, change the retrieve, faster, slower, twitchy or steady, until you find out how they want it. Stay in the game! Don’t let a lull in the action break your concentration. Fish hard from the beginning to the end, and don’t take a break while you still have a rod in your hand. Fish like you mean it or go home! Set the hook slow, but set it hard! Most anglers don’t realize that bass do not strike a lure fished below the surface in the same manner they take a lure on the surface. Below the surface, bass will approach a lure or worm and inhale it. They accomplish this by flaring their gills and suck in the offering along with nearly two gallons of water. Bass don’t strike sub-surface; they inhale. Anglers using rubber soft baits should recognize this behavior and lower their rod tip on the first indication of a take. A brief pause before setting the hook will almost always result in a hook-up, while an instant set usually takes the bait out of their mouth.

From page 1 all, and they just grab you in,” said the entertainer from Conway, Arkansas who has a regular gig impersonating Elvis at a club in Memphis. One of those cheering Joyce was Donna Bardelli of Cohoes. She and her sister Connie and son John saved every spare dime and dollar for a full year so they could afford to come back for yet another year at the Lake George Elvis Festival. During several performances Thursday, Bardelli was gyrating in her motorized wheelchair which was adorned with stickers of The King and had an Elvis purse hanging from its left armrest. Bardelli admitted she’s an Elvis fan, having an extensive collection of Elvis 45s, LPs, as well as Elvis furniture, clothing, photos, paintings and memorabilia filling her home. She said the Lake George Elvis Festival was annually the highlight of the year for her and her relatives. “When you hear these guys perform, you can close your eyes and see Elvis right here with you,” she said. Concertgoer Pat Harrington did have Elvis right with her Thursday, like she has 24-7 for six years. Harrington showed another fan her tattoo of Elvis’ face in a crucifix emblazoned on her back, accompanied with lightning bolts surrounding the letters T.C.B., an acronym of “Taking Care of Business” — an emblem favored by the King. While she’s had the tattoo only six years, Harrington has a long-term relationship with Elvis. The youngest of nine children, she heard his music from the cradle. As a toddler and throughout her youth, she shared a bedroom with her eldest sister, a devoted Elvis fan. Since then, Harrington has collected Presley memorabilia including one of his famous scarves, and a karate patch. Harrington’s been attending the Lake George Elvis Festival since it was launched, she said. “I love this event — I just can’t let Elvis die,” she said. “He will always be in my heart, and these tribute artists here keep it real.” Harrington and Bardelli weren’t the only fans for whom Elvis worship was a family affair. Sisters Cindy Jenkins and Tammy LeClaire of Fort Ann brought four other family members to the festival, and they were gyrating to the beat of one artist after another at Thursday’s preview concert. Rod Stewart impersonator Steve Bobbitt of Peoria Illinois paid this group special attention as he

sang Stewart’s signature song “Stay With Me” to a crowd that was aghast at his striking similarity to the pop idol. Bobbitt shook outstretched hands, and crooned within inches of beaming women’s faces, and occasionally sat in several of their laps as he sang in a gravelly voice and pranced through the crowd. “These tribute artists love to perform, and they are very friendly — We love them,” LeClaire said after Bobbitt sang to her and her relatives. After his performance, Bobbitt talked about the exuberance of the fans at the Lake George event. Bobbitt is a full-time Rod Stewart impersonator, performing in Costa Rica, Seattle, Chicago and Vegas with his backup band. “Rod Stewart doesn’t have the most melodic voice, but he loves the people and I like to get the audience involved as he does,” Bobbitt said. “When I got the call to come to Lake George, I said ‘Yesssss’ — I love it here,” he added. “There’s such a connection with the audience — this is an awesome place.“ Apparently Elvis Festival owner Jason Sherry has figured out how to make a similar connection with his audience. Despite the economic uncertainties, this year ’s Festival appeared to be close to a record of 4,300 paid admissions set in 2008, according to Sherry., who said he was pleased with the results. “We’re really excited about this weekend,” he said. “It’s gonna be gangbusters.” Sherry has launched two other festivals, the New England Elvis Festival, and the upcoming debut Pocono Mountains Elvis Festival, both of which have robust attendance. Thursday’s free show was a preview of the weekend’s Lake George Elvis Festival at which 66 tribute artists sang a total of 1,600 Elvis songs, or 5,000 minutes of singing and gyrating, Festival talent director Terry Collins told the enthusiastic crowd. A total of $8,500 in prize money was claimed in the competition, in which the top winner, Rick Lenzi of Maryville, Tenn., won $1,000 and will go on to compete in the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist competition this August in Memphis. The competing tribute artists represented five continents, two Canadian provinces and 21 states in the U.S. from Tennessee to Maine to Texas. Traveling the farthest to compete was a performer from San Palo Brazil, one from Qatar in the Persian Gulf, and two from Australia.

Lake George Association celebrates 125th year, boosts outreach

LAKE GEORGE — A group that for generations has worked tirelessly to protect the purity of Lake George is not only celebrating a major milestone this year, it’s expanding their programs and educational outreach. The Lake George Association, the oldest lake association in the U.S., celebrates its 125th anniversary in 2010. Established in 1885 by concerned fishermen to protect water quality for healthy fish, LGA was a pioneer in environmental preservation and conservation. Now, the 5,000 members of the group work together to protect, conserve and improve the quality and beauty of the Lake George basin. In recent years, the non-profit LGA has been actively involved in both educational and lake-saving projects. The LGA Floating Classroom is a custom-built 40-foot catamaran that takes tourists, resort guests, residents and school children out on the lake for learning about ecology and waterway stewardship. Floating Classroom guests enjoy hands-on experiences testing the lake’s clarity. Public trips are scheduled for every Wednesday in July and August, leaving the dock at Shepard Park in Lake George Village. All are invited to participate in free hands-on water ecology programs at Bolton Landing’s Rogers Park Pavilion, the Lake George Recreation Center and at Shepard Park in Lake George. Free “Lake-Friendly Living” workshops are offered on Saturdays at the LGA offices in Lake George. Workshops on Landscaping with Native Plants, the Do’s and Don’ts of Aquatic Invasive Plants, Water Conservation, and Lawn Care and Pest Management will be offered this summer. Also, the LGA can custom-design presentations. Citizen scientists join the LGA each year to monitor wa-

ter quality, as well as loons, turtles, and zebra mussels. Volunteers will participate in clean-ups at Log Bay on July 27 and at West Brook on June 15. In cooperation with local community groups, the LGA coordinates major projects to stabilize eroding stream banks, divert and purify stormwater, enhance wetlands and reduce sand and salt deposition in waterways. LGA-hired lake stewards inspect boats for invasive plants during the summer season. In addition, the LGA helps landowners find lake-friendly solutions for erosion, stormwater, landscaping or septic problems, as well as helping plan environmentally conscious developments. The LGA was formed in 1885 during the height of the U.S. conservation movement, when natural resource preservation gained momentum on the heels of essays by Thoreau and Emerson, and speeches by Theodore Roosevelt. U.S. Congress was establishing national parks and New York State created the Adirondack Forest Preserve. America’s natural areas were becoming destinations for tourists, naturalists, and sportsmen. People were beginning to value the natural beauty of places like Lake George. LGA’s first project was to restock the lake with fish. Because the fishery’s health depended on water quality, the Association addressed basic sources of pollution. Their tasks included working with local farmers to curb the runoff from pigpens and livestock yards that were polluting the lake. Later, as more families developed lakeshore camps and depended on the lake for drinking water, the LGA provided sanitary inspectors to encourage replacement of outdoor privies and to cut down on septic pollution. In the 1940s, LGA leaders influenced the state legislature to undertake the first technical studies of the lake which were the basis for the landmark Lake George Law. In the 1960’s, the Association lobbied successfully for a ban on phosphate detergents, the first in the State. Later, the LGA fought for construction of community sewage treat-

ment plants, a program that continues to this day. During the last half-century, rampant development has threatened Lake George. When regulatory controls were in their infancy, the LGA supported municipal planning and local laws to protect water quality. LGA members began monitoring local review processes. Faced in the 1980s with many large subdivisions and condominium proposals, the LGA fought successfully for effective stormwater and wastewater facilities to be included in construction plans. Milfoil beds were first discovered in the mid-1980s, and within months, LGA produced a workshop on state-of-theart weed control techniques. And later when zebra mussels were discovered in the lake, the LGA responded by providing vital information to local officials and residents. The LGA continues to bring nuisance species experts and educational sessions to Lake George, and to provide solutions. During the 1990s, the LGA boosted their educational programs for both residents and visitors, and they delved into a variety of engineering projects, as well as helping develop long-range watershed management plans. The LGA’s efforts in boosting the lake’s purity continue today through an eight-member staff, a board of directors, membership support, and volunteers. The group’s public events celebrating their anniversary include a Gala on July 16 at Inn at Erlowest, their formal annual meeting Aug. 20 at the Lake George Club, and commemorative postage cancellations at area post offices between Aug. 20 and Sept. 20. Contact the LGA at 668-3558 or for details.

State collecting pesticides, other chemicals WARRENSBURG — The state Department of Environmental Conservation will soon launch its CleanSweepNY program to help enterprises and organizations properly dispose of unwanted pesticides and other chemicals. Collection events will be held locally in Essex and Washington counties in early May to allow business and farm owners an opportunity to safely get rid of chemicals. Pre-registration is required; April 16 the deadline. DEC Commissioner Peter Grannis said in a prepared statement that the collection program offers a responsible way to dispose of hazardous substances. “DEC and our partners have coordinated these CleanSweepNY collection events because it benefits the participants and also protects North Country communities by reducing environmental risks,” he said. CleanSweepNY is supported by Cornell Cooperative Extension, the Agricultural Container Recycling Council, NYS Green Industry, Soil and Water Conservation districts, the New York Farm Bureau and related grower associations. Officials say the collection effort is directed at professional pesticide applicators, agricultural operations and other facilities where significant amounts of pesticides and other chemicals are used. These facilities could include schools, businesses, and recreational facilities like golf courses and marinas.
