Blood drive to honor life cut short


By Keith Lobdell

POTTERSVILLE Ñ A life cut short just days after coming into the world has inspired a family to help others through organizing a blood drive. The third annual Verhonica Mueller Memorial Blood Drive will take place Saturday, June 14, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Pottersville Fire House on Valley Farm Road, located off of Northway Exit 26. Kelly Wolfe, who helps organize the event, said the family wanted to do something to honor her granddaughter. Ò (Verhonica) was born April 9 and passed away 21 days later of Neonatal Hemochromatosis, a rare gestational disease only 151 documented cases worldwide.Ó Wolfe said Verhonica received plasma everyday and numerous blood transfusions, which is why the idea of a blood drive became the fuel for the event. Ò Three months after she passed we decided we wanted to do something to help others,Ó Wolfe said. Ò If not for the blood products we wouldnÕ t have had the 21 days we did with Verhonica, so we contacted Jill Ballou of the American Red Cross and set up our first blood drive.” CONTINUED ON PAGE 2

Americaders: ‘We enjoy the scenery and warm welcome’













By Thom Randall

LAKE GEORGE Ñ Gazing at several of the hundreds of motorcycles passing by on Canada St. June 5, Ernie Moreira of Woonsocket R.I. brushed some pollen off his decked-out touring motorcycle Ñ as his wife Sandy opened up one of its baggage compartments to grab a jacket.

On the inside of the trunk lid was an array of pins the couple had collected over years of participating in various motorcycle rallies Ñ in Sturgis South Dakota, Laconia New Hampshire, Palm Beach Fla., and as far away as Freeport in the Bahamas. Ò We love it here at Americade,Ó Sandy said as she closed the trunk lid, noting that the week-long rally in Lake George was among their favorites.

The two had driven their fifth-wheel camper from Woonsocket to Lake George with their 2013 Harley Road Glide Ultra stowed in the camper Õ s built-in garage. Ò The scenery is absolutely beautiful, we love checking out all the other bikes, and the peoplewatching is fun,Ó she said. CONTINUED ON PAGE 3

Sunday’s music fest a fundraiser for transplant recipient Maggie Munoff

LAKE GEORGE Ñ Lake George High School alumnus Maggie Munoff has always wanted to produce a music festival, and now oneÕ s being held in her name. The concert, to be held this weekend, is a fundraiser to help the Munoff family offset their continuing expenses related to MaggieÕ s recent kidney transplant. Ò MaggieÕ s Music FestivalÓ is to be held from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday June 15 at Towers Hall, Fort William Henry. The venue is located at 48 Canada St. in Lake George. The benefit concert features five well-known bands: Capital Zen, the Jonathan Newell Band, Sobgoblin, Bobby Kendall and the Wonder Beards. Maggie Munoff, 27, a documentary filmmaker and videographer who grew up in the Lake George area and is now based in Brooklyn, had to give up her work temporarily due to the operation and her subsequent recovery. Her congenital kidney condition was diagnosed in high school, and her renal function declined for the next decade until it reached a critical point. Maggie is a 2005 graduate of Lake George High. Her mother, Isobel Munoff Ñ a retired school psychologist working in recent years at War-

rensburg Central Schools, donated one of her kidneys to Maggie. The dual operation occurred April 22, and both mother and daughter are doing well so far in their recovery, Isobel Munoff said June 10, noting her kidney was a perfect match. Ò Overall, MaggieÕ s feeling better as days go by,Ó Isobel Munoff said. Ò Her failing kidneys were taking their toll on her body and it will take time to recover.Ó Isobel Munoff said that day by day, her own strength is returning. Ò I feel pretty good now, and IÕ m really happy that my daughter has a chance to keep living her life and not have it interrupted by dialysis and poor health,Ó Munoff said. Frank Munoff, MaggieÕ s father, is a retired school teacher in Hudson Falls who is wellknown in the area as co-founder of Operation Santa Claus. Frank has brightened the lives of thousands of area children and their families through his efforts to provide them with holiday gifts. Already, dozens of people have responded with emotional and financial support to the family through several fundraisers Ñ but more is needed to meet expenses of recovery and return to normal life. To date, fundraisers have been held at MarioÕ s Restaurant in Lake George, Full Moon Bar and Restaurant on Glen Lake, and The Bullpen

Maggie Munoff, 27, a documentary filmmaker and videographer who grew up in Lake George and Queensbury, underwent a renal transplant several weeks ago, receiving a live kidney from her mother, Isobel Munoff. Both are recovering well, and a fundraiser concert to help the family meet their ongoing expenses is set for Sunday June 15 at Towers Hall, Fort William Henry in Lake George. The music fest features the Jonathan Newell Band from 2 p.m. to 2:45 p.m.; Capital Zen in an unplugged performance from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.; Bobby Kendall from 4:15 p.m. to 5:15 p.m.; Sobgoblin from 5:15- 6:15; and the Wonder Beards duo from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Courtesy photo

Continued from page 1 Along with the blood drive, the event also serves as an education forum on Neonatal Hemochromatosis (NH), a rare gestational condition in which iron accumulates in the liver and extrahepatic sites of the fetus in a distribution similar to that seen in hereditary hemochromatosis. Ò We not only want to draw attention to the blood drive but the horrible disease as well since many people have never heard of it,Ó Wolfe said.

tavern in Glens Falls. Isobel Munoff said she was deeply grateful and moved by the outpouring of emotional and financial support to date from area citizens. In recent days, she has been reading the cards and letters that she has received, with the intention of penning a reply to each one. Ò To read what people have written and donated brings tears to my eyes,Ó she said, choking back tears. Ò The support has been so incredible Ñ All the people you walk through life with, they are there for you, no matter how much time goes by.Ó She added that the expressions of support show how deeply people truly care about others, and it provides inspiration for her and Maggie as well as other family members. Ò People have been so generous, giving us Ô life supportÕ to get us through this, and weÕ re so grateful. People out of nowhere have been responding to our needs....itÕ s so unbelievable. Their support has given us so much strength to go through this whole thing Ñ knowing people were there for us, caring about us.Ó Those who wish to donate may do so by sending a check to MaggieÕ s Kidney Transplant Fund, TD Bank, 54 Quaker Road, Queensbury. Donations can also be made online by visiting and searching for MaggieÕ s Transplant Fund page.

Lake George boat inspection program lauded; lake invasive control efforts underway By Thom Randall BOLTON LANDING — In its first two weeks in force, the mandated invasive species inspection and decontamination program for boats launched on Lake George is working smoothly and is well accepted by the public, lake management officials said recently. Lake George Park Commission Executive Director Dave Wick told members of the commissionÕ s Aquatic Invasive Species Committee May 30 that boats have been launched on Lake George without substantial delays, boat owners have been cooperative, and night monitoring of public launch sites is now gearing up. Ò The response to the inspection and decontamination has been overwhelmingly positive so farÑ which is great,Ó Wick said. Ò People seem to believe fully in the program Ñ our employees are hearing very few objections.Ó The program started May 15, and the Memorial Day Weekend was the busiest so far this year for boat traffic at public launches, he said. Wick reported that in the first 15 days of the program, 1,482 boats had been inspected at six stations around the lake, and 39 boats had not met the standard of being clean, drained and dry Ñ and were decontaminated by thorough, high-pressure washing. More than a third of these boats were inspected during Memorial Day weekend. Lake George Association Executive Director agreed with Wick that the response to the inspection and decontamination program was favorable. Ò WeÕ ve heard good feedback from boat owners Ñ the program is being widely accepted by the public as a way to effectively protect the lake.Ó he said. Lender said that brochures and emails describing the program were being widely distributed, and memorandums of understanding on boat inspection were being signed with all launch owners, homeownersÕ associations and marinas on the shores of Lake George. Emails were sent to about 160,000 people courtesy of the Warren County Tourism Department, he said. Lender added that boat owners and anglers had originally opposed the program, claiming it would restrict lake access Ñ particularly during nighttime hours Ñ but the outcome proved otherwise.


Continued from page 1 Ernie Moreira agreed, noting they had both enjoyed their ride in several of AmericadeÕ s tours through Vermont and upstate New York. Ò You meet people from all over the country,Ó he said, adding that he appreciated AmericadeÕ s trade show, TourExpo, where he had just bought chromed engine parts for his Harley. Ò With so many vendors, thereÕ s so much different stuff Ñ We come with full wallets and leave with Ô em empty,Ó Ernie said with a grin. He glanced up the sidewalk, full of people, many of them deciding which restaurant to choose for an early supper. Others were darting in and out of shops. Ò WhatÕ s not to like about this?Ó he said. Strolling past was Scott Sumell, a village Peace Officer, walking his beat. Ò I love Americade Ñ itÕ s family-friendly,Ó he said, noting that the prior night there were no bar fights, no confrontation with drunks, and he had not even issued one ticket. Ò Bikers come here with very good attitudes and they have a good time.Ó Looking for a place to have dinner were Bruce Bennett and his partner Kerie Heller of Clifton

Ò Initial fears of hampered access have been alleviated,Ó he said. Ò People with clean boats are not being stopped from getting onto the lake.Ó Wick noted that a nighttime boat launch monitoring had been implemented in the last week of May. Working during nighttime and early morning hours, the Ò night stewardsÓ now on duty couldnÕ t stop a contaminated boat from launching, but they would be warning the boat owner, taking down license numbers, and reporting the violation to the lake George Park Commission, which has enforcement authority. Two of the stewards work at Rogers Rock in the town of Hague, and two are on duty at Mossy Point launch in the town of Ticonderoga, Wick said. During the summer, the night stewards will be working seven days per week, from 9 p.m. until 6 a.m. until the regular personnel with enforcement take over, Wick continued. The stewards

Park. BennettÕ s motorcycle was the same model and year as MoreiraÕ s. Ò This is the highlight of the season for us,Ó Bennett said. Ò We enjoy the camaraderie with the people who ride Ñ itÕ s like a brotherhood.Ó Bennett talked about the bond that motorcyclists share Ñ primarily due to their common two-wheeled experiences. Ò We like having a bike underneath us, enjoying the freedom of the open road,Ó he said. Ò ItÕ s a great way of life.Ó Ryan Nawrocki of Boston pulled up to the curb, dismounted her 800cc Suzuki Boulevard and took off her helmet. She commented about how female riders receive plenty of attention on big motorcycles. Ò You get a lot of looks especially when IÕ m riding by myself,Ó she said. Nawrocki attended five days of Americade with her husband and her brother-in-law Joe Nawrocki. Their motorcycle trip to Lake George Ñ and the Americade tours during the week — were Joe’s first experiences ever riding in a group. Ò IÕ m out of my element, but IÕ m having a great time on all the different rides in the country,Ó he said. Ò IÕ m meeting a lot of cool people.Ó He added that he particularly enjoyed hanging out around a fire every night at the cabin the three were renting.


Ò You canÕ t get any better than this,Ó he said. Lake George business owner Patty Kirkpatrick stepped out of her store, NinaÕ s Sweet Shop and looked at the crowded sidewalk. Ò These people bring so much to the community,Ó she said, noting AmericadersÕ friendly demeanor as well as the economic impact of their purchases, including the local sales tax and bed tax revenue. Ò Because of their business, I can pay the property taxes on my building,Ó she added. A half-block north on Canada Street, shop owner Doug Frost stood in front of his purple Harley Dyna Super Glide Sport, watching the crowd. Frost occasionally recognized motorcy-

are paid by The Fund for Lake George, the cost through the summer is expected to be $50,000 total. Wick also described the status of the ongoing efforts to curb invasive species already living in the lake. Infestation of the lake by Eurasian Milfoil, a pernicious lakeweed, continues to be an issue in Lake George Ñ but harvesting measures are working to keep the invasive species under control, Wick said. The lake has 203 known milfoil beds, and more than 180 are cleared each year, he added. Twenty-three of the sites host dense beds, and four milfoil beds have been recently identified, Wick said. One is as large as a football field. The two worst infestations are in Lake George Village and the other is in Harris Bay, he said. The sonar images produced by the Jefferson Project is producing extremely detailed computerized three-dimensional maps of the lake bottom that are helpful in identifying the size and extent of milfoil infestation, Wick said. Asian Clams continue to pose a challenge, Wick said. He noted that while the procedure of laying mats down on top of known clam beds yields a 96 percent kill rate, many of the beds grow back by the following season due to the undetected presence of tiny juvenile clams. The most extensive known infestations are in Lake George Village, Boon Bay, Log Bay Norowal Marina and Middleworth Bay. Infestations have been recently identified in Sandy Bay and at Cotton Point, he said. The Asian clam populationÕ s ability to rebound was dramatically demonstrated last year in English Brook delta, where the lakebottom was essentially free of clams in May 2013, but by August was covered with the tiny invasive mollusks, Wick said. He noted that the the Darrin Freshwater Institute is now conducting a survey of the lakebottom for clams. When Wick said it would take $4 million to launch a project to curb the clams, Invasive Species Committee member Dean Cook said he supported such aggressive control measures. Wick responded that efforts to abate clams would be most effective after more of the science of clam reproduction in the lake is understood Ñ and appropriate control measures are devised. He said such studies are now underway. Ò Determining how to break the breeding cycle is the endgame,Ó he said, noting each clam can breed 1,000 or more juveniles. clists and greeted them. Ò Lake George residents really do make every single biker feel welcome Ñ and theyÕ re from all different backgrounds,Ó he said. The warm welcome was a new experience for Tony Watkins of Camp Springs Maine Ñ it was his first time attending Americade. He and his wife Vicky brought along TonyÕ s uncle and wife, Kimberly and Rodney Walton, to enjoy a family getaway in Lake George. Ò The people here are really nice, and everybody seems to welcome us,Ó he said as the group walked down Sewell St. towards the village’s main drag. “We’re definitely coming back.Ó

Helpers Fund Food Pantry growth beneficial to community By Mauranda Stahl-Sorensen

CHESTERTOWN Ñ A little more than a year after The Helpers Fund assumed full responsibility for the Chestertown Food Pantry, growth has been seen. Ò We serve over 100 people a month,Ó said Amy Culver, pantry supervisor. Ò We can serve anyone in an emergency the first time and then we serve only those in the Pottersville and Chestertown areas.Ó According to Mary Jane Dower of The Helpers Fund, this total does not include those receiving only emergency services, unless the person returns for a second time. Ò No child in Chestertown should go to bed hungry,Ó said Chestertown Supervisor Fred Monroe in a statement. This notion has been the FundÕ s primary goal. Using the economic standards established by the U.S. Getting ready for a distribution are left, Mary Jane Dower; center, Amy Culver; supervisor of the pantry and right, Margaret Andrews, volunteer. Not pictured are Helen Devlin and The Fund’s co-chair Department of Agriculture for the poverty level and Jim Fregoe. Photo provided purchasing food from The Food Bank of Northeast

New York, the Fund has attempted to reach those in need and at the same time move toward a more healthy offering of foods. Ò We receive grants from the national food bank,Ó said Culver. Ò I would say though that we are 90 percent funded from local donations.Ó With economic uncertainty looming, the fund states that they feel the food pantry will continue to grow and new registrants will be added, sighting the cut in the foodstamp and HEAP programs as reasons for increased need among the most vulnerable populations. A drop in food applications is expected with the onset of summer and seasonal unemployment on the rise, but the long-range forecast appears currently to emphasize the need for the food shelf and its services. Both Mary Jane Dower and Jim Fregoe, co-chairs of The Funds Food Pantry Program, are looking for additional fundraising activities such as bottle drives or raffles. At present The Fund has their annual 5K walk against hunger fund raiser scheduled in September.

Warrensburg Elementary School students jump rope for hearts The American Heart Association Benefits By Mauranda Stahl-Sorensen

WARRENSBURG Ñ With the determination of the students and oversight from coach Anne Downs, Warrensburg elementary was able to donate $2,300 to the American Heart Association. Ò A lot of kids are really into this,Ó said Downs. Ò Sometimes they have heart disease in their family so itÕ s personal.Ó 2014 marks the 10th year the district has participated in this fundraiser. Over the course of those years WES has been able to furnish the American Heart Association with over $33,000

in donations. Ò We talk a lot about heart health,Ó said Downs. Ò The American Heart Association gives us curriculum packets to use with the children.Ó This year at WES, the gymnasium was set up with jump ropes, skip-its, basketball equipment and a rock wall. All students participated in the event with approximately 60 seeking sponsorship and donation monies. The children participated for a set amount of time and sponsors were able to donate in a range of $5 to $300 dollars. Ò It is so amazing this community gives so much,Ó said Downs. Ò With everything going on with Skyler and this too we are just proud.Ó Participating children recieved prizes for top donation earners including thank you gifts and toy ducks.

Bolton visitors center, Rogers park upgrades, approved by town board By Thom Randall BOLTON LANDING Ñ The Bolton Town Board voted June 3 to endorse a roster of upgrades to Rogers Park, including construction of a new visitors center. Approved was a conceptual site plan, calling for improvements to park lighting and stormwater drainage, as well as erection of a new park entryway and installation of a watering system for the park grounds. The site plans also feature potential expansion of the Bolton Historical Museum, which is situated on the edge of the park. Improvements to the parkÕ s north

dock are also included. The upgrades had been proposed by a 22-member citizens advisory committee, collaborating with the Bolton Chamber of Commerce and the local recreation commission and Bolton Historical Society. Conover said Tuesday June 10 he was pleased with the plans which prompted a unanimous vote from the board after a presentation by Tim Larson of The LA Group architectural and planning firm of Saratoga Springs. Conover noted that the project is envisioned to cost $850,000. A state grant of $350,000 would be matched with about as much money now in a town capital improvement fund dedicated to Rogers Park improvements. Since a balance

of $150,000 or so exists, some of the aspects of the project are likely to be delayed for a second phase, he said. The expansion of the town museum isnÕ t included in the project budget, Conover said, noting that the town is applying for a separate state grant to bankroll the construction. The grant is likely to be augmented by funds raised by the historical society, he said. Ò These upgrades will have no effect on the townÕ s operating budget,Ó he said, noting that money from various grants have been saved over several years for the project. Ò The Town Board has been very conscientious over the years saving for this,Ó Conover added.

Fatal Motorcycle accident during Americade By Mauranda Stahl-Sorensen

BOLTON Ñ A motorcyle accident in Bolton left one dead and two injured June 6. The initial report came at 1:20 p.m. on Route 9N just north of Padanarum Road on the border of Hague and Bolton, with Warren County SherriffÕ s department responding. The scene of the accident is known locally as the Ò SÓ curves on the descent of the south side of Tongue Mountain. This area is of particular danger to motorcyclists as the curves are sharp and only briefly marked.

The crash comes during the annual Amcericade Motorcycle rally based in Lake George where, post-rally, three other incidents have been noted in Hadly-Luzerne, Queensbury and Lake George. John Avellino of Clifton Park was pronounced dead at the scene following a collision with a utility van. Ò Mr. Avellino was riding with a group of motorcyclists but was slightly separated from the group,Ó said the Warren County SheriffÕ s department in a statement. Ò Mr. Avellino was operating a 2007 Yamaha 1300 southbound on Route 9N approximately 1.5 miles north of Padamarum Road when he left his lane of travel and entered the northbound lane of travel. He was struck by the GMC van op-

erated by Stephen Frank (Lake George).Ó Keith Van Veghten of Albany and passenger Mary Hoyle also of Albany were also riding at the back of the group and entered the debris field post accident causing a second, non fatal crash. Both parties were transported to Glens Falls hospital with non life-threatening injuries. Ò There is no indication at this time that alcohol or drugs were contributing factors in the crash,Ó said the SheriffÕ s Department. Ò No tickets have been issued at this point in the investigation.Ó With the Warren County SheriffÕ s Department the Bolton Landing Fire Department/rescue squad and the Hague Fire Department and Emergency Squad responded.

Work on the improvements could begin in Spring 2015, he said. The next step in the project is to prepare detailed designs for a visitors center and schematics for the other improvements. Some site work could be undertaken as early as this fall, when detailed plans are expected from The LA Group. Conover said that a new, accommodating visitors center would be appreciated by visitors and residents alike. Ò Bolton is very busy,Ó he said. Ò And the visitors center would be a gateway to our area, dispensing information on what we offer not only in Bolton but in the region, whether itÕ s activities on land or water Ñ or sites of historical interest.Ó

The VA: Dysfunction at its best


he VeteranÕ s Administration is again under fire, and rightly so, but their incompetence, which borders at many times on criminal malfeasance, goes much more deeply than wherever their current flash point issue happens to be. The most recent issue surrounding the VA, which has caused their director to step down amidst the turmoil, revolves around VA clinics falsifying records to show that veterans were seen within a certain amount of time, when in fact they hadnÕ t been seen within that time frame. Some veterans, it has been shown, have died while waiting to be seen. While the spectre of falsifying records is a new twist in the VAÕ s record of bureaucratic incompetence, their overall way of doing business is still just as bad. The VA has fairly simple marching orders: provide medical care and treatment for veterans once they leave the service. But the VA is a monolithic behemoth, which is nearly impossible for a individual soldier to make their way through on his or her own. Getting a foot in the door initially when a soldier leaves the service is the first stumbling point, but it shouldnÕ t be. A soldier might serve in the military for 20 years or longer. During this time their every move is documented; every deployment, every injury, every location theyÕ ve ever lived is recorded by the Department of Defense. So when they leave the service and apply to the VA that information is digitally transferred from the DOD to the VA, right? Wrong. The soldier has to apply to the VA, provide their own documentation for things like known injuries or medical conditions, then wait for the VA to review their records and accept them into the system. Why? It’s understood that a soldier who qualifies will be applying to the VA when they leave the service. Why canÕ t their records automatically follow them to the VA? According to Washington officials, it’s just not technologically possible to do. The government has invested millions of dollars trying to figure out a way to employ some fairly simple 1990s technology to track these records, but were apparently not able to figure that one out. So a soldier applies, and finally, eventually makes their way into the VA medical system most likely after months of waiting. When youÕ re accepted into the VA system you can go to any facility nationwide, wherever you happen to be, right? Wrong again. Consider a veteran in our area, who winters in the south. That veteran has to pick which VA facility they want to receive their treatment in,

north or south. Is this the case in the civilian system? Do you have to pick which hospital you will receive your care in? Of course not. If you typically receive treatment in Plattsburgh but are on vacation, a couple keystrokes at the hospital will bring up all your medical records and insurance information while you sit there. Why can’t the VA figure this technology out? Now what if the soldier is one of the thousands who came back from one of our decade long wars disabled in some way? Their medical and service records transfer directly to the branch of the VA that handles disabilities, right? Nope, wrong again. Why? Again, it appears that the government canÕ t figure out the technology to make this simple transfer of records possible. Ditto for the branches that handles veterans’ educational benefits, and cemetery benefits. You start back from scratch each time you come to a new command; prove who you are, where you served, prove that you qualify for these benefits. These should have all been locked in the day that veteran left the service. Now think about this...what is the government actually capable of when it comes to tracking records. Currently the NSA is able to track every phone call made, apparently anywhere in the world. They can read and store every email sent, and are even in the process of combing the internet with their facial recognition software, for reasons they are quite reluctant to discuss. So is the VA unable to transfer veteransÕ records because the technology doesnÕ t exist, or does the will to spend the money required to bring their Jurassic system into the twenty-first century simply not exist in Washington? Maybe instead of reading the emails of millions of lawabiding Americans or European allies, the NSA could and should be sharing their technology with the VA in order to build a system where veterans arenÕ t dying while waiting for their records to be processed; where snow-bird veterans arenÕ t forced to choose which VA facility will treat them, or prove a disability when they leave the service missing a limb or an eye. Our government simply doesnÕ t care enough about our veterans to pay to put in place technological systems that clearly have existed for years, if not decades. Perhaps the criminal malfeasance in Washington shouldnÕ t be placed just at the feet of the VA any more, but should fall to those of the President, Senate and Congress as well. Ñ

Turning Back the Pages By Jean Hadden

One Hundred Years Ago June, 1914 Rum, rousing and revelry

Introduced in our quiet village by feudists from neighboring towns, on Lower Main Street, Saturday afternoon and evening, May 30, 1914, was the scene of a bitter conflict between rival factions from the town of Bolton, who, gathering in Warrensburgh for the holiday, took advantage of the occasion to settle a feud of long standing. After bracing up their courage with frequent draughts of red liquor, each side allowed that they could lick their weights in catamounts and proceeded to get busy. For several hours, with occasional intervals to care for the wounded, the air was full of oaths and indecent language mingled with the sickening thud of fists landing full on human flesh and kicks brutally placed in such parts of the enemyÕ s anatomy as presented an opening. At one time a man lay prone and helpless on the brick pavement of the street while another kicked him in the face with a heavily shod foot. That serious injury was not sustained by some of the combatants was little short of miraculous. The trouble continued well into the night and people residing in the vicinity were thoroughly disgusted with the rum-rousing and revelry. Such visitors are not welcome in this usually quiet village and authorities should see that future visits of this kind are emphatically discouraged.

“Sherlock Holmes” visits Lake George

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the famous English novelist and creator of Sherlock Holmes, accompanied by Lady Doyle, H.L. Clarkson, of the Canadian Grand Trunk Railway and a few friends, arrived at the Fort William Henry Hotel, Lake George, Tuesday afternoon, June 2, 1914 and remained until the next morning of June 3, 1914 when they left by steamer for Fort Ticonderoga and from there to Montreal.

Bakers Mills mystery explored

Undertaker Willard Moston, of Wevertown, who had charge of the burial of William Merrill, of Bakers Mills, after he had been burned to death in his store at that place on April 8, 1913, has put a quietus on the suspicion of murder stirred up recently by the finding of a human foot some distance from the scene of the fire. Mr. Moston states that one foot was entirely burned off from Mr. Merrill at the time his body was taken from the ruins of the fire and the member was in all probability dug from the debris by a dog and carried to the spot where it was later found. (Note Ð This macabre tale of the human foot found in the woods near the burned out Merrill store in Bakers Mills was told in this column in the June 7, 2014 Adirondack Journal. Many believed at the time it was the foot of a bear and others believed that it was human evidence of murder.)

Colorado Waif

The Wild West comedy-drama, Ò A Colorado Waif,Ó in four acts, will be presented by the Corinth Dramatic Club on Tuesday, June 9, 1914 at Music Hall, Warensburgh, with the same cast of characters that has made the play such a success in other local areas. The play is brim full of clean fun with sufficient pathos to leaven it. The play, under the name of Ò Triss, a Child of the Rockies,Ó was presented in Warrensburgh some twenty years ago for the

benefit of the old G.A.R. Band, with Mrs. Louis E. Reoux, then Miss Adelia H. Thomas, in the title role. C.S. Woodward, in the role of Hank Jordan, made his debut on the local stage at that time and became one of our cleverest amateur actors. Other parts were taken by the late Charles H. Wallace and E.C. Beaupre. The entertainment will conclude with a dance for which EddyÕ s Orchestra will furnish music. (Note Ð Adelia Thomas Reoux was the granddaughter of Miles Thomas, who built the Senior CitizensÕ house in 1873 and the mother of Assemblyman Harry A. Reoux. She was married to banker Louis E. Reoux. Her wedding dress is in the possession of the Warrensburgh Museum of Local History.)

House on the move

The Pasko tenant house, recently purchased by Warrensburg tailor Abe Katz, is on its way up Main Street to its new location on Third Street, moving slowly on rollers under the supervision of Lindsey Ormsby, of Glens Falls who took the job after a local contractor abandoned the task. (Note Ð Abe KatzÕ s original tailor shop was on the north corner of Main Street and School Street, now present day Stewart Farrar Avenue.)

five sons and two daughters. Internment was in the village cemetery by the side of his wife who preceded him to the grave by only a few months. Adam Putnam, an old resident of Hague, died Sunday morning, May 31, 1914, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. John Shattuck at Silver Bay. Silas Wood, 66, a life long resident of Athol, died Saturday morning, June 6, 1914, after a long illness. He is survived by five daughters and four sons. Burial was in the Cameron Cemetery.

New frontier

Immigration figures show that the population of Canada increased during 1913 by the addition of 400,000 new settlers from the United States and Europe. Most of these have gone on farms in the provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. In local news, Stewart Farrar returned home to Warrrensburgh on Tuesday, June 9, 1914, from Montreal where he had been employed for some time in a shirt factory there.

History remembered

A burglar, Monday night, June 1, 1914, attempted to break into the Rev. S.C. FoxÕ s residence, Fairview Cottage, on Burdick Street, Warrensburgh. The building was unoccupied as Rev. Fox has been staying with his son since the death of his wife about two weeks ago. A neighbor heard the noise and went to investigate and the intruder was thus frightened away before he had affected an entrance.

It was just fifty years ago, May 31, 1864, that the village of Glens Falls burned in a speculator fire. The blaze began in the kitchen of Glens Falls Hotel and quickly spread to burn most all of the downtown area, destroying 112 buildings and houses, the aftermath leaving few 19th century buildings. Only three buildings in the central downtown business district were left standing after the fire. (Note – Glens Falls residents, ever aware of the danger of fire after that fateful day, had an engine house built the next year, in 1865, on Ridge Street, next to the present City Hall and another soon after on South Street, next to where the historic Madden Hotel was once located.)

Grand prize winner

Spring has arrived

A thief in the night

Ten year old Paul Gurney is now the proud and happy owner of the twenty dollar foot-power automobile which was on exhibition in Warrensburgh, in the show window of the Haskell Ð Hall Company, Inc., from April 15 to June 1, 1914 and was given as a prize for a contest during that period, votes being credited for Ò WhoppersÓ from Sunshine Biscuit wrappers. Paul went at the business of being a winner in a systematic manner and gathered in something like 400 votes. (Note Ð Paul Gurney was an amazing and talented man who loved his home town. In 1929 he drew up blueprints for a new Colonial style bandstand, the Floyd Bennett Memorial flagpole and the commemorative bronze plaque for its base. He died in 1979 and left money to the town in his will for the maintenance of the bandstand which had been left to deteriorate over the years. Paul was also a talented cartoonist.)

Bolton wedding celebrated

George W. Nelson and Miss Lucille Barber, both of Bolton, were married Tuesday afternoon, June 9, 1914 by the Rev. E.M. Parrott at St. James Episcopal Church, Lake George. Miss Jessie A. Barber, Miss Pauline Nelson and Miss Matilda Veach were witnesses. Miss Helen Weaver played the wedding march. The bridal party left for Bolton Landing about noon by automobile after the nuptial knot was tied and a reception was held at the home of the bridegroomÕ s parents where the happy couple will remain until fall at which time Mr. Nelson plans to build a house.

Death in the news

Nehemiah Floyd, 92, of Adirondack, died Sunday morning, May 31, 1914 of diseases incident to old age. He is survived by

Memorial Day was quietly observed in Warrensburgh. There were no public exercises, but the sacred duty of decorating the graves of the departed was faithfully performed by many citizens. The Warrensburgh Cadets marched to the cemetery at an early hour in the forenoon and placed floral tributes to mark the last resting place of their deceased comrades. Trout fishing is on now and several good catches of the speckled beauties have been reported We have been favored with a fine rain here and everything is fresh and green. The rain came just in time to save the crops. Weller Brothers, of Riverbank, have begun running their meat cart for the season and they have a quantity of young pigs as one of their sows recently gave birth to thirteen fine piglets. Clarence Potter has exchanged his Maxwell automobile with Edson Granger for a Saxon touring car. Eugene Wood, of Indian Lake, has a new Stanley Steamer in charge of Orvis Locke which makes two trips daily to Blue Mountain Lake, which is a great convenience. Mr. and Mrs. Joshua Reynolds, of East Thurman, are in bad shape, Mr. ReynoldsÕ mind being weak and Mrs. Reynolds being very feeble. Mr. and Mrs. Augustus Jones are also both in very poor health as not having recovered from the rigors of the hard past winter. The interior of the Gore Church, in Igerna, has been entirely renovated and the new paper, paint and varnish make a great improvement.

Letters to the Editor

High Peaks Hospice fundraiser To the Adirondack Journal: Twenty-eight years ago High Peaks Hospice was founded in Saranac Lake offering a more holistic and patient driven approach to end of life care. In the ensuing years more than 6,500 individuals and their loved ones have benefitted from the programs at High Peaks Hospice & Palliative Care. High Peaks HospiceÕ s ability to continue to serve those most vulnerable has always been made possible only through the generous financial support of the communities we serve. The most enduring Ð 22 years and counting - and successful fundraising effort continues to be High Peaks Hospice Radio Day. Radio Day has become a much anticipated event in the TriLakes communities each June. I would like to encourage you all to join us on Tuesday, June 3rd for this year Õ s High Peaks Hospice Radio Day. It promises, as always, to be a fun and exciting day of support and celebration. Local businesses have generously donated a wide variety of services, items Ð such as an Adirondack Chair Ð and gift certificates to area golf courses, restaurants and more, worth hundreds of dollars. These will be offered as incentives throughout the day for your pledges. This year Õ s big raffle item is an iPadAir. Please remember to tune in on June 3 between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. to radio stations 105.5, 102.1 or 106.3 FM, 1240 or 920 AM, Time Warner cable channel 2 and 22 or go to for a live stream. Why is Radio Day so important? Hospice receives no state or federal government funding. Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements were cut in 2013 due to the federal Sequestration while the cost of end of life care continues to increase due to more complex end of life issues. In addition, care is provided to anyone, regardless of their ability to pay, including the uninsured. Consequently we turn to the communities we serve to help bridge the ever widening gap. Ninety percent of us know when the final phase of their life has begun. Hospice is there to help. An individualÕ s final journey is not traveled alone Ð it affects their families, other loved ones and caregivers - all are part of the hospice Ò unit

of care.Ó By focusing on the physical, emotional as well as spiritual needs of all involved, hospice brings dignity, acceptance and peace not only to the patient but also to their loved ones. To accomplish this we are asking for your help. Your past financial support and enthusiasm has been instrumental to the success of Radio Day so please call 897-2443 on June 3 to make your 2014 pledge. Your pledge on Radio Day truly does make a difference. Your support of this year Õ s Radio Day will help us all live the way we want to live. Please make a difference by calling 897-2443 between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. on Tuesday, June 3. Remember, hospice is about living. Darsie Townsend Development Director High Peaks Hospice & Palliative Care

the 40 years since, only one year exceeded 70. Note that the last 40 years have had the highest temperatures; the previous 20 years ran cooler (recall the ice age scare circa 1970?). These data indicate negative relationship between strong tornados and climatic temperature, and also between strong tornados and atmospheric CO2. Ditto major hurricanes. One example of extreme weather is the blizzard of frightening reports, far more extreme than the underlying science theyÕ re supposedly summarizing. One made a big media splash just in time for April FoolÕ s Day, another in early May. These reports are controlled by political appointees, who far outnumber scientists in the all-night sessions that produce the final wording. Paul Gilchrist Diamond Point

Major storms down To the Adirondack Journal: GoreÕ s ClimateReality programs perpetrate predictions of increasing hurricanes, floods, violent storms, droughts, etc. and blame it on CO2. However, the IPCC reports Ò low confidenceÓ there has been or will be an increase in hurricanes or droughts, or that humans will contribute to any changes in these events in the foreseeable future! In other words: high confidence there hasnÕ t been and will not be increases in these events or human contribution to them. It seems strange to make predictions if they are of low confidence unless they can be used to scare people. Since 1910, the average number of major hurricanes striking the U.S. has been seven per decade. Each of the last five decades since 1960 has been below seven, averaging 5.6; the five previous decades averaged 8.4. ItÕ s similar for tornados. NOAA says Doppler radar, Ò has led to an increase in the number of reported weaker tornadosÉ This can create a misleading appearance of an increasing trend in tornado frequency.Ó NOAAÕ s data show a downward trend for EF3-EF5 tornados. In the 20 years 1954-1974, there were seven years with 70 or more strong tornados; in

Notice:CandidateEndorsements As we approach the upcoming election season we want to make an important distinction regarding candidate endorsements. With a free distribution in excess of 60,000 homes, our papers are inundated every election cycle with candidate endorsements. The only source of revenue our community publications receive to offset the cost of print, delivery and overhead is paid notices and advertisements. All candidate endorsements must now run either in the form of an advertisement or a paid endorsement notice and include the name of the individual making the endorsement. The paid endorsement notice can be purchased for $15 for up to 50 words, or .25 cents per word thereafter. A paid advertisement will be based on standard advertising rates taking into consideration size and frequency according to the current rate card at the open advertising rate.

Warrensburg’s renegade bike rally is growing By Thom Randall

he said, noting he started his enterprise after he made one for himself after surgery.

WARRENSBURG Ñ On the Warren County Fairgrounds May 30, Ed Zibro wheeled his golf cart around the aisles of the Warrensburg Bike Rally to talk with vendors at the annual event he co-founded in 2001. A man lurched toward him, extending his arm for a handshake. It was Kevin Roach of Daytona Beach, Fla., a vendor of motorcycle apparel. Ò I want to thank you Ñ the crowd here is unreal,Ó he said about attendance at whatÕ s been called the Ò renegadeÓ motorcycle rally which has become successful on the coattails of Americade. Ò People are just rolling in Ñ itÕ s been non-stop all day.Ó Driving past several of his 40 vendors, Zibro talked about the growth of the rally he cofounded with Gary Verhulst, a motorcycle tire vendor from Georgia. Ò We have vendors from the Florida Keys to California,Ó Zibro said. Ò ItÕ s turned out to be a home run.Ó Tens of thousands of motorcyclists attended the colossal Americade touring motorcycle rally in Lake George this past week, and many of them attended ZibroÕ s rival rally. Zibro said his vendors have doubled from 20 to 40 this year, and his attendance has multiplied by the same factor. Driving past vendors, Verhulst said his vendors were independent rather than affiliated with big corporations. Ò We have the little guys with the unique items,Ó he said, Among the vendors at the Warrensburg rally with unique wares ws Robert Ò Badger BobÓ Huddleson of Vista Ca. with his Ò Howling HelmetsÓ enterprise. Huddleson creates helmets

For well over a decade, Warrensburg has been welcoming motorcyclists drawn to the Lake George region for Americade which has been held in Lake George Village for 32 years. For 14 years, thousands of bikers have flocked to Warrensburg during Americade and for the several days preceding, eating in local restaurants and browsing through merchandise at local stores. With the move of the ZibroÕ s rally from uptown Main St. to the fairgrounds on Schroon River Road three years ago, the motorcycle traffic through the hamlet has decreased, but the Warrensburg Chamber of Commerce is seeking to keep up the momentum, chamber vice president Linda Marcella said Monday. For the first three days of the Warrensburg Bike Rally, she was strolling through the rally, welcoming bikes, and encouraging them to visit local businesses, many of whom are extending special deals to the bikers. Ò WeÕ re encouraging people to have a good time at the rally and come back into town and patronize our local merchants who support the bikers, she said, mentioning that the rally vendors pay a $125 transient merchant fee to the town, as well as sales tax, some of which is funneled back to local government. Kim and Pam Ladd of Thurman and Warrensburg were busy over the weekend manning the chamber booth, welcoming rally attendees to town. Marcella said that the early-June bike rally gives Warrensburg businesses a vital boost. Ò Ed Zibro and his partner are working very hard to not only make it successful, but to assure our local businesses are supported,Ó she said. Ò As long as we work together, we all win.Ó

Bikers boost commerce in W-burg

Taking a break from talking to browsers at the Warrensburg Bike Rally, vendor ‘Badger Bob’ Huddleson talks about the pelts, furs and animal heads he uses to create his eye-catching motorcycle helmets — one of which is owned by rock star Steven Tyler. Held simultaneously with the internationally-renowned Americade touring motorcycle rally, the Warrensburg show continues through June 8 at the Warren County Fairgrounds off Schroon River Road, Warrensburg Photo by Thom Randall

from overseas. Ò I have people all over the world collecting horns and pelts for my helmets,Ó Huddleston said. Ò I donÕ t ever want to be cookie-cutter in my work.Ó The next row over, Bob Parow of Sauquoit, NY was selling cans carved or cast to the shape of human leg bones. Ò These canes are so different Ñ they attract a lot of attention at shows all over the nation,Ó

Also celebrating birthdays this week are Sheila Pelekai on June 18 and Donald J. Carpenter on June 19.

Kathy Templeton has requested that special recognition extend to Cathy and Joe Mannuci of Athol Hardware & Variety located on Mountain Rd. As most know, Kathy has decided to pursue her bread business, Breads by Smith and work directly from home. In the middle of preparing orders, she ran out of propane and thankfully, the MannuciÕ s came quickly to her aid by opening their store so she could buy enough propane to complete her orders. IsnÕ t it wonderful to live in such a caring community? A thank you extends to the Mannuci family.

National Flag Day

Each year on June 14, many celebrate what is known as National Flag Day. On the contrary, others have or had no intention of celebrating this day as the origin or reason for this day was unknown to the individual. Although not a federal holiday, it is up to the PresidentÕ s discretion to publicly declare this observance. After research, I offer some helpful information as to why this day should be

personally recognized. The idea, originated by BJ Cigrand to specifically celebrate the flag, was adopted in 1885 on the 104th birthday of commemorating the adoption of The Stars and Stripes. As a result, in 1893, Colonel J. Granville Leach, a historian of the Pennsylvania Society of the Sons of the Revolution, allowed for a resolution that would instruct the display of the American flag for those in authority or private. Leach also suggested June 14 to be recognized as Ô Flag DayÕ . Two weeks following, the superintendent of public schools in Philadelphia, required that Flag Day be commemorated with patriotic song and exercises in all schools of the area. In continuance, other states and their officials also adopted the idea to celebrate the flag’s birthday by a display of the flag. Those states include New York and Illinois. On May 30, 1916, President Woodrow Wilson formally established Flag DayÑ the anniversary of the Flag Resolution of 1777 and on August 3, 1949, President Truman signed an Act of Congress that would truly designate June 14 as Ô National Flag DayÕ . Prior to this event, in 1914, a statement on behalf of the flag was given by Franklin K. Lane, Secretary of the Interior, and these words were included: Ô I am what you make me; nothing more. I swing before your eyes as a bright gleam of color, a symbol of yourself.Õ Whether you choose to observe Ô Flag DayÕ or not, may you be encouraged to think upon these words in remembrance to what our flag truly stands for.


If you would like more information on upcoming events, please pick up a brochure at the Town Hall. This brochure offers information of all events to be held in Thurman for this year. If you are technologically able, there is also a group on Facebook named Ô Thurman HappeningsÕ , where local residents post public and private events as well as information regarding local citizens to keep each other updated. My email is Mrs.Herrmann626@gmail. com, my phone number is 623-4552, and you can contact me through Facebook as well. If you have any Ô Thurman HappeningsÕ you would like to see mentioned, as well as a birthday or anniversary, please do not hesitate to contact me through these means.
