Vandals sought in W-burg

This Week REGION

By Thom Randall

WARRENSBURG Ñ Vandalism erupted last weekend in Warrensburg, and town officials have responded that they will take whatever action necessary to stamp it out. On the night of June 13, several picnic tables which were set out to accommodate townspeople attending an upcoming town concert at the municipal recreation field were overturned and partially ripped apart. Town Supervisor Kevin Geraghty said June 17 said that the incident was reported to the police, patrols have been stepped up, and town board has pledged to prosecute and bring to court anyone who damages town property. “Whoever can’t treat public property with respect is going to face consequences,” he said. Ò Any vandals will be pulled into court — We’re not fooling around.” Geraghty said he and the board have asked citizens living near the town recreation fields to monitor nighttime activities, and that the town court officer, Dave Cavanaugh, is now patrolling at night. Other town employees have pledged to watch for suspicious activities, Geraghty added. CONTINUED ON PAGE 4

Firefighters’ parade, convention and carnival this week













By Thom Randall

QUEENSBURY Ñ Featuring a flourish of pomp and pageantry, the Hudson Valley Volunteer Firemen’s Association convention and parade return to the town of Queensbury this week. Thousands of volunteer firefighters from throughout eastern New York are expected to

participate in the four-day convention, based at the West Glens Falls Fire Station No. 1 on Luzerne Road at Veterans Road. The focal point of the weekend activities is the hours-long full-dress parade beginning at 1 p.m. Saturday June 21, as well as a Mardi Gras parade the prior evening at 7 p.m. The parades annually draw many thousands of spectators. A carnival is to be held Wednesday June 18 through Saturday

June 21 in conjunction with the convention and parades. Saturday’s full-dress parade features at least 112 marching units, including firefighters in uniforms — some quite formal, others elaborate. The procession also features dozens of acclaimed marching bands as well as antique fire equipment. CONTINUED ON PAGE 11

The NYS DEC held a swift water training for Region 5 Forest Rangers June 12. Photo provided

Bruce Lomnitzer, a forest ranger from Indian Lake and Hudson River Gorge, who was at the training, is enthusiastic about his job. “My personal opinion is that I’m on everybody else’s vacation,” Lomnitzer said. “I get to go rafting, white water kayaking, mountain biking [and] ATVing. I’m on the helicopter crew, so I do hoist operations and everything like that. I also do caving. I’ve got one of the nicest and most pristine caves in Hamilton County, Eagle Cave. [It’s a] beautiful cave, but it’s a little technical. It keeps me busy.” Lomnitzer said the main motivation behind the training was to get rangers used to inflatable kayaks, which had been nicknamed “duckies”

and were quite versatile. “They blow up pretty quickly,” Lomnitzer said. “They’re a good summer level rescue boat, especially if you don’t have a kayaking roll. Because if you fall over, you just get out of it, clammer back on it and keep on going down.” Lomnitzer said the degree to which particular forest rangers are familiar with boating is mostly a result of the geography of where they’re stationed. “The nice thing about a forest ranger is what you do is that you move into your area,” Lomnitzer said. “You find out what really needs to be done there, and you become pretty much the expert of that. I moved to Indian Lake in 2000. By 2001, I started boating, and

Montcalm Mile

it‘s pretty much dominated my life.” Lomnitzer said he and his fellow trainees were gaining from the experience. “No matter what, as soon as you get someone into an inflatable kayak, even on the flat water they’re starting to learn,” Lomnitzer said. “They’re starting to learn their general paddle strokes. They’re learning what the water can do. And they’re learning that the inflatable kayaks are actually very stable.” Glen Bronson, a forest ranger from Clinton County, said the training was mostly a refresher course for him. “We’ve done this before,” Bronson said. “It gets us back in the water, get used to the feel of things. We’re doing rescue training as well as search training.”

HADLEY Ñ The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation held a swift water training for approximately 20 forest rangers, who make up about half of Region 5’s force, June 12 on the Sacandaga River in Hadley. Ò It was for rangers to hone their skills, if you will, for rescuing individuals who might fall out of rafts or even drowning victims from the shore,” Region 5 Forest Ranger Captain John Streiff said. “We’ve had some new transfers that have come in from other parts of the state who might not be as familiar with swift water rescue here in the Adirondacks. But with the thousands of miles and hundreds of ponds and lakes that we have in the Adirondacks, it’s very important for forest rangers to keep up their skills in swift water rescue.” Streiff said the trainees’ existing skills ranged from proficient to expert, in which “everyone has a basic level of swift water awareness at least,” Streiff said. “And we have some technicians among us.” The training focused on paddling techniques, self rescue, swimming in swift water and the use of throw bags. Throw bags are Ò something that every ranger carries and many emergency responders,” Streiff said. “That’s nothing but a rope and a bag that you can throw out into the water when you can’t reach someone to effect the rescue.”

Teens from afar ready to fix up homes of local elderly, disabled By Thom Randall WARRENSBURG - Hundreds of teenagers from across the nation involved in the YouthWorks Christian mission outreach will be sprucing up homes and other buildings in northern Warren County this summer, and the organization is now seeking projects to undertake. Also, YouthWorks will be conducting a day camp from June 30 through July 31 for children ages 4 through 12. Camp sessions Ñ featuring Bible stories, crafts and games — are to be held from 12:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays at Holy Cross Church on Main St. in Warrensburg. Children from all over northern Warren County are welcome. The nationwide Christian organization YouthWorks, based in Minneapolis, will be sending about 60 teenagers each week over the summer for seven one-week mission trips as an outreach to help out those in need as well as provide recreational and spiritual enrichment opportunities, according to YouthWorks site coordinator Luke Rice. The first mission group arrived Monday June 15, and their initial project was to clean up campsites and accomplish landscaping work at Jesus is Lord campground in Diamond Point. The teens, from all over the nation, will be tackling some light fix-up, yard work and painting projects, while they experience the culture of the region, Rice said. Elderly homeowners, or those of modest means or special needs, are encouraged to call YouthWorks’ staffer Austin Morrow at (502) 593-5673 with potential projects. The visiting teenagers will be spending nights in two local churches — the boys in Holy Cross and the girls at First United Methodist Church in Warrensburg. The youths will be spending their days working, with time off for recreational pursuits, Rice said. Some of the teens will be working on the home improvement projects, and others will be working at the Kids Club day camp under adult supervision, plus probably visiting residents of various nursing homes and adult care centers. Plans call for many of them to work on painting at The Priory Retreat House in Chestertown and Gore Mountain Ski Center as well as tend-

ing to a community garden at the Gore Ski Bowl nearby. Other potential projects include working with Warrensburg Beautification on some landscaping of town parks and gardens, and yard work for North County Ministry’s outreach center, Morrow said. The southern Adirondacks YouthWorks mission is one of 75 or so destinations across the nation for this outreach program, Rice said. YouthWorks have been conducting missions based out of Warrensburg since 2007, brightening the lives of area residents. YouthWorks teens

have mended fences, repaired sagging porches, cleaned up overgrown yards, weeded gardens, and painted dozens of houses, inside and out. Their work has been accomplished primarily in the towns of Warrensburg, Johnsburg, Chester, Stony Creek and Bolton, Rice said. “We’re happy to be back in Warrensburg — people here have been very hospitable, friendly and open,” he said. “We’re looking forward to serving local communities.” Rice said that YouthWorks is holding a community cookout at 6 p.m. each Thursday

through July, and all area residents are invited to share food and fellowship with the YouthWorks volunteers. “All are welcome to join us,” he said. Warrensburg Town Supervisor Kevin Geraghty said he was grateful, on behalf of area residents, for Youthworks’ efforts. “We’re very pleased these teenagers come into town and help folks,” he said. “It demonstrates fortitude on their part Ñ they do a good job and it’s a great program.”

Warrensburg Volunteer Fire Company history to be on display WARRNESBURG Ñ The Warrensburgh Museum of Local History is preparing its major summer/fall 2014 exhibit, opening Sunday, June 29, at 1 p.m. with a reception, and will remain through Columbus Day. The exhibit tells the stories of the Warrensburg Volunteer Fire Company, Warrensburg Emergency Medical Service, and local policing efforts, including the role Warrensburg citizens played as Warren County sheriffs. Since Warrensburg’s early settlement in the late 18th century, as in any frontier community, the safety and protection of its settlers was a concern but little could be done about it. Destructive fires, whether of home, barn or commercial building, were all too common. With illnesses and accidents, availability and distances to doctors meant that home remedies were heavily relied upon. And self-protection was the order of the day when it came to criminal activity. As the population grew during the nineteenth century more doctors moved to town. A county sheriff’s department was created. Distance and slow transportation limited their effectiveness. Effective fire protection was very slow to develop. More than one hundred years passed before Warrensburg created, and financed, an organization that was chartered to respond to the call of “FIRE!” The exhibit was developed by the Warrensburgh Historical Society, with the support of the Warrensburg Fire Company, Warrensburg EMS and the Warren County Sheriff’s Department, plus resources of the Warrensburgh Museum and Historical Society collections. The Museum, located at 3754 Main Street (VFW Building), is operated by the Warrensburgh Historical Society for the Town of Warrensburg. Parking and entrance are at the rear of the building. Admission is always free. The museum is fully accessible. Hours are Wednesdays, noon to 4 p.m., Saturdays 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Sundays 1 to 3 p.m. Visit the Society’s website at or call 623-2207 for more information.


Continued from page 1 “I’m fed up with the vandalism,” he said. “We’re taking this very seriously.” Vandalism had emerged in Warrensburg in 2006 with a group of young teenagers who titled themselves “the chaos crew” caused considerable damage to public and private property, as well as disruptive late-night partying in the former Grand Union parking lot. These incidences prompted tough enforcement of a town curfew of 10 p.m. on weeknights and 11 p.m. on weekends Ñ as well as formation of a neighborhood posse. This neighborhood patrol, along with arrests, was credited with driving the group out of town, and halting the prevailing lawlessness. Deputy Supervisor John Alexander and five other local citizens were among those patrolling the streets of Warrensburg nightly, typically from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m. He and the others have been credited for quelling the vandalism problems which had spiralled into damage totalling tens of thousands of dollars. Alexander said this week that he was again committed to curbing unruly behavior in town. “This vandalism is discouraging, because the town board is trying to provide enjoyable recreational and social opportunities,” he said. “Board members and other citizens are trying to make Warrensburg a better place.” Geraghty offered similar thoughts. “We work very hard to give the residents and children good facilities, and to have these items damaged and destroyed will not be tolerated,” he said. “Our taxpayers and the town board will not accept this behavior.” He said that citizens witnessing suspicious activity should dial 911 to report it.

Wbg. board takes action to shore up giant Garage Sale vendor revenue By Thom Randall WARRENSBURG Ñ With the Warrensburg Chamber of commerce experiencing ever-greater competition from local property owners renting out their yards to vendors during the town’s annual World’s Largest Garage Sale, the town board decided this month to take action to keep the renowned event solvent and well-organized. The Chamber of Commerce is losing spaces every year and cost of running the Garage Sale is increasing, Chamber officials reported at the town board’s June 11 meeting. The board responded by raising the rate from $20 to $50 for the Individual Peddlers Permits that vendors situated on private yards must purchase. A portion of the the proceeds from the permits are to go to the Chamber to offset expenses. These IPP permits are required on Main Street lots where the Chamber pays for garbage collection and for the rental of some of the Port-A-Johns. Town Supervisor Kevin Geraghty said the town will strictly enforce the law that vendors must obtain permits. Hundreds of local residents rent spaces on their property during the sale, and the practice has grown due to the flexibility in the space sizes and because the Chamber doesn’t allow sales to occur on their spaces until Saturday and many vendors are seeking to sell goods to the bargain hunters who annually arrive as early as Wednesday. Geraghty announced at the meeting that the Town is applying for a Transportation Alternatives grant to continue work on building and improving sidewalks and bicycle routes as well as rehabilitating Main Street and other roadways in town. The Board thanked town employee Patty Monahan for her efforts in writing the grant applications.

Improvements pending for town parks

It was noted the Town received more

funding from the state’s Creating Healthy Places to Live, Work & Play program — to purchase benches, trash cans, picnic tables and drinking fountains for the town recreation field off Library Avenue and Marcus Bruce Park. The grant also pays for many directional signs directing visitors to these town amenities. The board thanked Kathy Varney, coordinator of the program on behalf of Glens Falls Hospital, for working with the town staff to obtain the grant. In other business, the town board: • approved a resolution supporting the Warren County Planning Department’s grant application to bankroll a new town sewer line down Horicon Ave. (Schroon River Road) from Countryside Adult Home to Main Street. • heard that construction and rehabilitation of sidewalks along James St. would likely begin this fall. The board discussed the pending work accomplished along Elm, James and Sanford streets as well as Ashe Drive and Woodward Avenue. • voted to revise the municipal water rate for apartments to $97.50 per year and $1.95 per thousand gallons of water in excess of 20,000 gallons. • approved an occupancy tax grant of $946.00 to the Warrensburg Historical Society for advertising expenses. • appointed Danielle Robichaud to the town planning board. Alternates on the board are still being sought. Those interested in serving in the post are urged to call the town supervisor’s office at 6239511. • heard that quotes for asbestos and lead abatement for the Floyd Bennett Bandstand were received. Work is to begin on this aspect of the project to rehabilitate the bandstand, the premier town landmark, after approval is received from the Department of State. The agency awarded a substantial grant toward the project. • heard that quotes are being sought for sludge removal equipment for the municipal sewer plant. It was noted that the sand filter recently installed at the plant was operating efficiently and a second

one would be added soon. • reviewed the success of the Warrensburg Bike Rally held recently at the Warren County Fairgrounds. The Warrensburg Chamber of Commerce and Warrensburg Business Alliance staffed a booth at the rally promoting Warrensburg businesses. Geraghty expressed appreciation to d Zibro for his work in developing and running the motorcycle trade show, which had record attendance. • passed a resolution supporting a grant application — on behalf of the Warrensburgh Historical Society and Warrensburgh Beautification — for a feasibility study on rehabilitating the town Senior Citizens Building on Main Street. The building needs various repairs and upgrades, and heating it has become prohibitively expensive in recent years. Town leaders have discussed giving the property to one or both the organizations — but by state law, the property would have to be put out for competitive bid and sold at a fair market price. • approved giving $500 to the Warrensburg Volunteer Fire Co. for fireworks at the annual Smoke Eaters’ Jamboree to be held July 25 and 26. • were informed that $15,000 in state grant funds has been received for studying the possibility of expanding the town sewer system. • accepted the resignation of Eileen Frasier from the Board of Assessment Review. Geraghty noted that Frasier has been a valued member of the board and will be missed. The town is now seeking applications to fill the post, and applicants are asked to call the town supervisors office at 623-9511. • heard that the town’s high bid of $25,000 was accepted on a foreclosed residential property at 13 King St. next to the Town Highway Garage. A closing on the transaction is to occur soon. Geraghty said the property would likely be used to improve access to the highway garage. • adopted a new town procurement policy. Geraghty said a “best value” option would be discussed at next town board meeting, set for July 9.

Owens talks jobs as he tours Lincoln Logs, Stephenson Lumber By Thom Randall CHESTERTOWN Ñ Larry Stephenson, CEO of Lincoln Logs and Stephenson Lumber, sat in a conference room at his firms’ Chestertown headquarters, discussing with U.S. Rep. Bill Owens the various challenges of conducting a business in the lower Adirondacks. Owens was visiting Lincoln Logs recently, gathering information on the various concerns facing entrepreneurs in his 21st Congressional District. After a tour of the Lincoln Logs mill and one of Stephenson’s three stores, Owens and Larry Stephenson talked about workforce readiness, foreign trade development, and the how the high cost of fuel inhibits product transportation. Ò I have a lot of pride in keeping businesses active and employees at work in the Adirondacks,” Stephenson said. “It’s always been a goal of mine.” Stephenson Lumber has three stores, including one in Speculator and the other in Indian Lake Ñ both in Hamilton County. Stephenson owns and operates Riverside Truss as well as The Original Lincoln Logs — which designs and manufactures log homes and panelized construction materials for commercial and residential use. Riverside Truss builds roof truss systems for homes and businesses throughout the Northeast, Stephenson noted. Ò I love bringing outside money into the Adirondacks,” he said, prompting Owens to say he understood how vital that was to the area’s rural economy. Stephenson mentioned his concern that many qualified potential employees in Hamilton County were leaving the area with the belief they could get a better job elsewhere. Asking about Internet access in the commu-

nities where Stephenson’s stores and mills are located, Owens noted that the growing workat-home initiatives nationwide could potentially reverse that trend. Stephenson responded that in Speculator, Internet access was limited, and might not be enhanced for at least several years. Owens noted that in a visit earlier in the morning to the Darrin Freshwater Institute on Lake George, he had heard that lack of broadband was curtailing the transmission of data obtained in the Jefferson Project, a world-class research project into the lake’s ecosystem. The project is a joint venture of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and IBM. Stephenson also noted that the fact that Indian Lake now has no supermarket, which is prompting local residents to travel many miles to buy groceries. The hamlet’s only supermarket closed down five years ago, accelerating the

loss of population, he said. Owens suggested that the community consider “crowd funding” over the Internet to raise donations to re-establish a local grocery store. He observed that Saranac Lake recently launched a general store through community funding. Owens also proposed that communities in the Adirondacks recruit people in various professions suitable for working at home. Owens observed that the Federal government is rapidly developing its own remotely based workforce. After the conference, Owens said many of

the concerns raised in the meeting with Lincoln Logs and Stephenson Lumber officials were shared with many industries in other rural areas. “We need to keep working on these issues,” he said. “It’s a matter of survival for communities in the Adirondacks.” Noting that there were presently 3,000 unfilled jobs in his 21st Congressional District, Owens added that workforce training is an issue Ñ workers have to upgrade their skills to meet the needs of the 21st Century jobs. Operation of computer-controlled machine tools and conducting tasks with automated equipment are examples of good-paying jobs that are going unfilled, he said. High schools, trade schools and community colleges need to develop more programs preparing workers with high-technology skills, he said. Owens, who is retiring from Congress in December, said he envisions himself in upcoming years continuing his efforts to boost regional economic development, probably in a volunteer role. Just last week, Owens held a forum at SUNY Adirondack for business and industry executives to share ideas on boosting exports.

Adirondack Journal Editorial


Communication is the key

he San Antonio Spurs just showed every basketball fan in America that when a team comes together, they can do something spe-

cial. The Spurs did not have the marquee name player (that honor went to the Miami Heat and LeBron James, arguably the greatest player of this generation) or an inflated payroll. They had a mixture of players from different backgrounds who came together to make each other better. On the court, the team worked together. The only way this could have been accomplished is through practice, patience and communication. On a playing field or court, communication can come in verbal forms, such as calling a play or helping teammates to know their responsibilities, or in physical forms like raising an eyebrow to tell a teammate to cut to the basket or pointing to where the pass will be delivered. No matter what, communication is vital to a successful team. In the North Country, some teams and schools are facing the stress of declining enrollments equaling a lack in the number of youth needed to play middle and high school sports, especially among the schools in Section VII/Class D, which holds the lowest enrollment numbers in the region. Several schools have already consolidated athletic programs, creating the Minerva/Newcomb Mountaineers and Indian Lake/Long Lake Orange. Others have combined for individual sports, best exemplified by the Emus track and field team, a combination of Elizabethtown-Lewis, Keene, Moriah and Westport. Of late, we have reported that ELCS and Westport have started to talk about more merged sports programs. This spring, the two schools combined their modified (typically students in grades 7-9) baseball and softball programs, with one team playing games in Elizabethtown and the other in Westport. Now, the schools are looking to do the same with the modified girls and varsity boys (typically grades 10-12) soccer programs. Willsboro has just completed its fourth season of not fielding a varsity baseball team. Furthermore it was not even able to field a modified or junior varsity program (which can take students from all eligible grades depending on a physical for younger athletes), signifying what may be the unfortunate end to an entire spring sports program where a once proud ball tradition stood. This also would not be Westport’s first time down the merged team road for a sport other than track, as they combined with Keene for the two-year boys spring sports era known as “Beagle-ball.” For these schools or any others looking at the need to merge sports or, let’s be honest, even academic reasons, communication is going to be the key. In Schroon Lake, Athletic Director Lee Silvernail

June 21, 2014

invited the community to a public forum on the future of Wildcat athletics which took place June 17. Schroon Lake has already been affected. This spring, the school was without a modified baseball program, which meant students in seventh grade who are barred from advancing to the varsity level by the state had no chance to play organized baseball Ñ too young for varsity and too old for little league. Silvernail is giving the community the chance to shape the future of how they want their sports programs to be handled, whether it be through combined gender teams, merged teams, or only fielding a varsity or modified squad, depending on numbers. We commend Silvernail and Schroon Lake for taking this initiative. This is the way we hope all school districts approaching this topic would communicate with their parents and students as they head down a very sensitive road, no matter what the outcome of the public hearing and any further planning. If you are a school district or districts looking to merge teams and you are not having similar forums and hearings, we would strongly suggest you do so. For many of our small town communities, high school sports is something to rally behind. It designates us as Eagles, or Lions, or Eagles, or Blue Bombers, or Eagles, or Warriors, or Eagles (yes, we have noticed there’s four teams locally with the same nickname). All over the area, signs have popped up at the edge of town indicating their school team won the Section VII title or made it to a state championship game. People hold on to these memories made through sports and may see the combining of two teams as cheapening those sacred reflections. They may also feel bringing two schools together will lessen their child’s chance of participating in high school sports since it has been ages since anyone in a Class D school has heard the word “cut,” without looking at the possibility that a merge could actually lead to an increased opportunity through the addition of a junior varsity program, giving an option of three viable teams instead of two which are somewhere between fledgling and nonexistent. This is a situation where no matter what a school or schools decide to do, someone is going to be upset that their school nickname is going away or that their kid can’t play school sports because there was not enough interest to field a team and no one wanted to merge. In the world of high school sports, this may very well be a no-win situation. But, one thing can lessen the impact of any and all decisions made and bring communities closer together as they face these new North Country realities, and that is communication. Ñ

Question of the Week: Do you believe there is a drug problem in the North Country?


Yes, I think there is a drug problem in Clinton County. However, I think our law enforcement is excellent at responding to the situation. However, the most alarming “product of choice” today is meth. Ñ


I’m worried about heroin because it’s definitely a problem in Vermont, and it’s probably been spilling over. Heroin is the one I’d be nervous about. It’s so cheap.

Leigh Carter-Simonette




Is there a drug problem? Of course there is. It’s been a big, potent problem for many years. The drugs have changed — they’re more available then they were 40 years ago.

Bill Localio




Yes, I think there is. I hear a lot about it. It’s scary I talk to my daughter about it. My son travels back and forth from the city to Ticonderoga and it worries me.

andy Urban




Yes! There have been two overdoses right here in town. I was a police officer in the 50’s in CT. and we didn’t have those problems. There were no drugs.

Turning Back the Pages By Jean Hadden One Hundred Years Ago – June, 1914 Tragedy strikes yet one more time

Deep mystery surrounds the fate of Frank and Myron Spaulding, father and son, who started in a row boat Sunday morning for a day’s fishing on Lake George. The boat was found floating bottom upward in the lake on Monday, June 8, 1914, near the shore opposite Adirondack Camp, north of Hague. It was empty and was nearly cut in two, a rip starting within a few inches of the gunwale and extending below the water line. It had evidently been struck by the sharp prow of a motor boat, but when it was occupied or after it had capsized it was impossible to tell. No trace of the missing men has yet been found and they have without a doubt been drowned. Physicians claim the bodies would never be recovered if they went down where the boat was found as the water there is at least 250 feet deep. A diligent search has been made but not the slightest clue has yet been developed. Sheriff Richard J. Bolton, who conducts the Trout House, at Hague, took charge of the search and has made every effort to clear up the mystery, but without avail. He went to Ticonderoga and interviewed the owner of a fast boat which was on Lake George late Saturday afternoon and which many people believed might have been the one which struck the Spaulding boat. The Ticonderoga man furnished a complete alibi by accounting for his whereabouts at all hours after the Messrs. Spaulding were last seen and no scratches or marks were found on his boat. Frank Spaulding was about fifty-two years of age and father of Frank Spaulding Jr., who was accidentally shot and killed on Sept. 2, 1913 by young Wellington S. Morse of New York. Myron Spaulding, 23, was unmarried. When the father and son did not return home as it grew dark on Sunday evening, Mrs. Spaulding sent out an alarm and the wrecked boat was found shortly after daylight the next morning. A brisk wind blew across the lake on Sunday night and it is impossible to tell how far the boat might have drifted. (Note – This current 1914 tale is just part of a tragic stream of events that went on and on. In this column in the Sept. 21, 2013 Adirondack Journal was the story of Wellington S. Morse carelessly shooting Frank Spaulding Jr., 15, in Johnsburgh, with a shotgun and the boy bleeding to death, from his left leg on his way to the hospital. In the March 8, 2014 issue was the story of a Lake George jury acquitting Morse of second-degree manslaughter after which he left with his mother, Hattie M. Morse for her home in New York City. On March 11, 1914, Mrs. Morse’s boyfriend, John H. Price, 35, shot and dangerously wounded her after she had spurned his advances, grappled with her son, Wellington Morse and then ended his own life with a bullet in his right temple. Now we have the story of the apparent drowning death of Frank Sr., and his son, Myron Spaulding who was present in 1913 at his brother’s shooting. I received an E-mail from Brenda Ross, of Hudson Falls, who said that Frank Jr., was the brother of her grandmother, Bertha Spaulding Robbins and that the drowning victims are buried in Hague Cemetery and she thinks that Frank Jr., is there also.)

Miss-step in the dark

o’clock. He was called by one of the office employees as usual Saturday night and said he would be in the office within a few minutes. In passing through the dark hallway to descend the stairs it is believed that he stumbled and losing his footing, plunged to the bottom of the stairs where he was found unconscious by another employee. He was injured internally, several ribs were fractured and one of his shoulder blades was broken. The injured man was taken to the Glens Falls Hospital by automobile but little could be done for him. He was about forty years old.

Emerson causes indignation

Residents of Schroon Lake village are up in arms over the action of Senator James A. Emerson, of Warrensburgh, proprietor of the Leland House, who, incensed at the delay of the village board in removing a band stand which he claimed obscured the entrance to his hotel, took matters in his own hands and with a crew of helpers from Warrensburgh, tore down the offending structure. The band stand was built twenty-three years ago, but of late had fallen into disuse. In answer to the senator’s demand that it be removed, a meeting of the village board was called to consider the matter, but a quorum failing to appear, action was deferred until the next regular meeting, two weeks later. Although before its destruction, residents of the village had no particular love for the band stand, the senator’s tactics caused a reversion of feeling in many and in consequence “indignation meetings” are of daily occurrence with the end not yet in sight. (Note – It was only a short time later, Nov. 1, 1914, that Senator Emerson’s Leland House was destroyed by fire. The three-story frame building, erected by W.G. Leland, was forty-three years old.)

Spirited dash to death

William Morrison, 51, after a short but spirited dash to catch the southbound Hudson Valley trolley car leaving Warrensburgh, Saturday morning, June 20, 1914 at 7 o’clock, was stricken with heart disease just as he was about to step into the car in front of the Grand Army House and fell unconscious to the ground. He was carried into the hotel where he died a few minutes later without regaining consciousness. Mr. Morrison had been employed at the Fort William Henry Hotel, Lake George, for some time and went to his work every morning on the 7 o’clock car. Saturday morning he was a little late in getting way from his home on Horicon Avenue and when he saw the car coming down Main Street, he made a dash to catch it and panting from his exertion, grasped the hand rail and was placing his foot on the lower step when he collapsed. He was carried into the Grand Army House by postmaster Robert Murray and Jay Griffin who placed him on a coach in the parlor. There, after a few gasps, he died. He leaves a widow and one daughter, Miss Maude Morrison. He is survived by his sister, Miss Minnie Morrison and three brothers, Charles, Eugene and Wesley Morrison. Internment was in the Warrensburgh Cemetery. (Note – The Grand Army House was later the Warren Inn and currently it is a new building, George Henry’s.)

Boy meets hard ground

William Lincoln, of New York, night clerk at the Fort William Henry Hotel, Lake George, fell head foremost down two flights of stairs in a cottage adjoining the hotel about 9:40 o’clock Saturday night, June 13, 1914 and sustained injuries which caused his death soon after in the Glens Falls Hospital. Lincoln roomed in the cottage and went on duty nights at 10

The two Johns, Hastings and Straight, a pair of live-wire youngsters, were racing on their bicycles on the sidewalk in front of Pasko’s Block one evening recently and were hitting up a pretty good pace when young Hastings’ rear wheel struck the curbing and he was hurled to the walk with considerable violence. One arm was severely injured. (Note – Pasko’s Block

was just south of today’s Floyd Bennett bandstand, named for Alexander and his son, Emerald Pasko.)

News roundabout

E.C. “Kid” Manzer, H.C. Smith, Lewis E. Crandall, Andrew Wescott and Marshall F. Burt went by auto to Botheration Pond, in North River country, on a fishing trip and returned home with forty pounds of speckled trout. There was a family reunion at the home of E.J. Hewitt, in East Thurman on May 31, 1914. All of the family was present, three daughters and their husbands, three sons and their wives and seventeen grandchildren, each son having a son. Frank Allen, whose house in Bakers Mills was burned to the ground recently, has moved into the Dennis Waddell farm house. Allen’s son, George and wife, with a young child, were living with their father and they saved a little clothing and a few household effects. Mrs. Ernest Wood, of Bolton Landing, has recently received a letter from her son, Percy Wood, who is a soldier in the United States Army and is now stationed with his regiment at Vera Cruz, Mexico. He sent a picture of his company and says that he is very pleased with army life.

Grim reaper strikes victim

Byron Merrill, of Bolton, residing in the northern part of town in the locality known as Padan Aram, died from the effects of injuries sustained when he was kicked by a horse. He was driving home alone from Horicon when the accident occurred and was found unconscious in the road and taken home by a passer-by. He leaves a widow and two small children. He was the son of Edward Merrill, the brother of Marlow Merrill and the nephew of Maroni and Nephi Merrill. Internment was in the Bolton Cemetery.

Remembers Napoleon

Probably the only person now living who has a clear personal recollection of the great Napoleon Bonaparte is M. Pierre Schamel-Roy, of Neuilly, France, who in August of this year will be 106 years old. M. Schamel-Roy, as a boy of 12, saw the fallen emperor in exile at St. Helena, where he was taken to visit his father, who was a faithful follower and servant of Napoleon until the latter’s death. (Note – After being defeated at the 1815 battle of Waterloo, Napoleon died in 1821 at St. Helena.)

News far and near

King Alfonso and Queen Victoria of Spain recently entertained Theodore Roosevelt at luncheon at their summer palace, La Granja, forty miles from Madrid. King Alfonzo and Mr. Roosevelt first met at the funeral of King Edward VII in London. A son was born to Mrs. Leslie Tripp, Monday, June 8, 1914 at home on the Cunningham farm adjoining the Woolen Mill tract in Warrensburgh. (Note – The former Cunningham Retreat, today on the north corner of Library Avenue and Milton Avenue, has been renovated into apartments.) Mrs. Harry Floyd, of Adirondack, welcomed a 9 pound baby daughter on June 9, 1914 to the family home. R.E. Valentine, of Friends Lake, has moved into his new cottage.

Viewpoint By Evie Russell


eren’t we the lucky ones now 50 years later to be able to find some old hand written letters from friends, relatives or even state officials? In rural communities, telephone and electric lights were not available before about 1945. Children were schooled in one room schools and started at age 7 in first grade where they first learned to print the ABC’s and their numbers from one to 10. By the

third grade, they were given a penmanship booklet and were soon learning to write instead of printing. We had story books to study, which were written out instead of printed....and our teacher was patient until we got everything nearly perfect and understood. By our fifth or sixth grades, we were writing neatly and only printing if it was required. Now some 50 or 60 years as we sort through boxes of stored toys and papers, we come across some very precious memories. There were letters from near and far away

with old stamps of 2 and 3 cents and even a one and a half cent stamp. Hand written notes or long letters full of news from friends and relatives were read, bringing back fond memories from the 1940s to the 1980s when people started using computers. I came across a very special one of a kind of happy memory from about 1947 mailed from Thurman to West Halifax, Vt. It came rolled up in a brown store paper, and when I opened it very carefully, I found a rolled up letter written on white birch bark. It was from one of my special aunts (Mabel Lil-

libridge) who was always so thoughtful and has been kept all these years through many family moves. It is still in good condition. Other letters from aunts, grandmoms, cousins, etc. brings back precious memories that brings it all back fresh in your mind. Now, very few still write letters, so the new generation (when so much is shredded) won’t have things to look back on. See why folks refer back to these early years being in the good old days?

p.m., and Skeeter Creek on Saturday also at 8 p.m. The convention, includes a firematics trade show and a seminar on arson detection as well as association business meetings and election of officers. The convention ends with fireworks at 9 p.m. Saturday. Parade & convention may return to Lake George For decades, the HVVFA convention and parade were held in Lake George Village with robust participation and parades five hours long. In 2002, the HVVFA parade in Lake George featured firefighters from New York City fire companies whose members perished in the Sept. 11 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center, and the event drew international attention. Mellan and Hill said the annual convention and parade are likely to return to Lake George Village, as a multi-year contract is now being negotiated with Lake George officials. Hill said the contract would probably be approved by the HVVFA officers at this week’s convention. Mellan said that both Queensbury and Lake George are popular destinations with the Hudson Valley firefighters and their family members. “Our members thoroughly enjoys their visits up there because there’s so much for people to do, whether it’s the attractions in Lake George or the outlet malls in Queensbury.”


Bill VanNess, Third Assistant Chief of West Glens Falls Fire Co., said the parade will be almost four hours long. “We extend a warm welcome to all the dedicated volunteer firefighters from eastern New York State as well as area citizens,” he said. VanNess serves on the Queensbury Town Board. The Mardi Gras Parade is a more informal and festive affair. This annual procession has a new theme: Ò Traditions run deep,” reflecting the fact that this year’s convention is the firefighters association’s 125th annual convention, HVVFA President Joseph Mellan said. A resident of Glen Spey NY, Mellan is the deputy fire coordinator for Sullivan County. The HVVFA has about 500 member fire companies, representing as many as 40,000 volunteer firefighters in the 16 counties that border the Hudson River — stretching from the border of New York City north through Essex County, according to George Hill, the association’s financial secretary. The route for Saturday’s parade begins at the West Glens Falls Fire Station No. 2 on Luzerne Road at Van Dusen Road, and proceeds east on Luzerne Road to the West Glens Falls station No. 1 at the intersection of Luzerne and Veterans roads.

Adirondack Journal - 15

Athol-Thurman By Amber Herrmann

Who is doing what in the outdoors?


cross t h e n a tion, there are a wide variety of outdoor recreational options that remain available for a majority of the year as long as the weather remains fair, the beaches stay open and the rivers continue to flow. Traditional consumptive activities such as hunting and fishing are regulated by predetermined seasons which are typically based on the biological cycles of the fish and game. Traditional, nonconsumptive activities such as birding and wildlife watching are also dependent on the season, which are also based on mating cycles and migratory patterns. The variety of outdoor recreational options remain as diverse as the vast national landscape, and while seasonal disparities often effect the availability of such pursuits as skiing, hunting, fishing, and a host of water-based activities; there are usually enough options to keep outdoor enthusiasts busy whether in the field, forest or on the water. The most recent Outdoor Foundation Outdoor Participation Report, which was released in 2013 indicates that nearly half of the US population regularly took advantage of the outdoors during the previous year. Although the overall participation rates remained roughly the same as previous industry reports, the number of participants involved in outdoor recreation activities proved to be the largest percentage ever recorded in the history of the report with nearly 142 million people getting out to enjoy the outdoors annually. In the Adirondack region, where winter sports rule, there are an abundance of non-winter sports as well. Traditional consumptive pursuits such as hunting and fishing are complimented by non-consumptive activities birdwatching, paddlesports, mountain biking, trail running and more. The list of available activities is seemingly endless, and adventurers continue to develop new and exciting outdoor opportunities, at almost every turn. In 2012, American travelers took full advantage of the diversity and accessibility of our national infrastructure. In fact, nearly half, about 49.4 percent of all Americans reported they participated in some form of outdoor recreation last year. That equates to 141.9 million Americans. The study reveals that while participation among children and young adults remained steady, participation among adolescents dropped. Overall participation by this demographic group was dragged down by dramatically low participation among adolescent girls. This demographic group has steadily declined over the past ten years, which I expect has something to do with the burgeoning electronic entertainment that is omnipresent online and cellular. Outdoor participation rates declined among adolescent girls. With just over half of adolescent girls participating in outdoor recreation. The participation rate was the lowest recorded since the report began in 2006. Although the overall percentage of outdoor participants remains about the same as it was in 2011, the total number of participants grew by about 800,000, due to population growth. Although over 13 million Americans began participating in outdoor activities during 2012, another 12 million stopped, resulting in a net gain of only one million total outdoor participants. The number of total outdoor outings increased, reaching an all-time high, as Americans participated in over 12.4 billion outdoor excursions which signals a significant increase from the 11.5 billion excursions reported in the previous study. Possibly the fastest growing outdoor pursuit was Adventure Racing which experienced the highest rate of growth over the five year period. Adventure Racing may be responsible for a notable increase in the overall outdoor participation rate among adolescent boys ages 13 to 17 which has added three-percentage points in the past two years. The study reveals that for youth who do not participate in outdoor recreation as young adults, the lack of time is a bigger barrier than a lack of interest. The report also concluded that Introducing outdoor recreation and physical activities to youth early in life has a lasting effect, and the earlier the better. Among adults who are currently regular outdoor participants, 75 percent had physical education and 42 percent enjoyed outdoor activities in elementary school.

Among females ages 16 to 20, indoor fitness is still the preferred physical activity, and it remains their most popular form of activity throughout life. SUP is by far the fastest growing outdoor activity in the country, and it continues to enjoy vast participation nationwide. SUP, which is short for or stand up paddleboardingalso enjoyed the highest percentage rate of first time participants with over 56 percent of participants trying it for the first time. Overall percentages for Most popular top five outdoor pursuits based on participation rate for Americans ages 6+ include: 1. Running, Jogging and Trail Running 19 percent of Americans, 53.2 million participants 2. Freshwater, Saltwater and Fly Fishing with 16 percent of Americans, 46.0 million participants 3. Road Biking, Mountain Biking and BMX with 15 percent of Americans, 42.3 million participants 4. Car, Backyard and RV Camping with 13 percent of Americans, 38.0 million participants 5. Hiking with 12 percent of Americans, 34.5 million participants Most importantly for the Adirondack regional economy is a recent report which details annual expenditures according to their dedicated outdoor pursuits. According to the report, the list of activities accounts for annual spending directly related to the activities. 1. Camping: $143 Billion 2. Water Sports: $86 Billion 3. Bicycling: $81 Billion 4. Trail Sports: $81 Billion 5. Off-Roading: $66 Billion 6. Snow Sports: $53 Billion 7. Motorcycling: $43 Billion 8. Fishing: $35 Billion 9. Wildlife Viewing: $33 Billion 10. Hunting: $23 Billion What does the report indicate for the Adirondack region in terms of future economic development opportunities? It appears to illustrate that the region is on track to attract a new breed of outdoor travelers if the recent demographics are considered. It should be obvious to most that local trailheads are now busier than ever, as are the region’s lakes and rivers. With upcoming national races and rallies ranging from the Ironman USA event in Lake Placid to the annual Americade Motorcycle Rally in Lake George, the Adirondack region is a well established destination with a long history for accommodating traditional outdoor pursuits and current day adventures. The region is ideally suited to accommodate nine out of the top ten most financially significant outdoor pursuits, with only limited resources dedicated to motorized ‘off -roading’, due to restrictions inherent in the ‘Forever Wild’ amendment which prohibits motorized use 0n most Forest Preserve lands. The region’s renowned winter sports resources are considered to be world class, as evidenced by regular World Cups events, and the burgeoning interest in backcountry skiing. The region has a solid reputation among enthusiasts of the top four pursuits on the list due to a century old tradition for accommodating campers and water sports enthusiasts, especially paddlers. Currently, the North Country is particularly well situated to take advantage of a growing interest in mountain biking. Trail networks for mountain bikers have been expanded in many communities and the trend is likely to enhanced if the Rails to Trails effort is ever peacefully resolved. It was an abundance of fish, fur, feathers and forests that historically stoked the region’s economy by drawing anglers and artists, birders and photographers, hunters and anglers, climbers and campers to the Adirondack region; and the Adirondack region remains one of the very few destinations capable of accommodating all 0f the top ten most popular outdoor activities in a single location.

Hello sunshine

As a native Floridian, I am one who anticipates the arrival of summer heat after what

seem to be long winter months. With much pleasure, the lady with the Florida blood can finally announce that summer will be arriving shortly! Although sunshine and warmth have already engulfed the sky, June 20 marks the official beginning of the season. Many tourists are heading this way to partake in numerous Adirondack activities that will include kayaking, canoeing, hiking mountains and trails, swimming, fresh-water fishing, and much more. Local residents have even begun to enjoy these activities as well. One activity some participate in is geocaching. If you are looking for a free, family friendly activity, this is one I would highly recommend. Not only does this activity allow one the opportunity to explore the great outdoors, it also permits for an educational experience. To begin, all you need is a GPS; handheld works best, pen, and some small trading items that should not include anything edible or liquid. Waterproof items work well such as bouncy balls, bookmarks, small toys, etc. Now to the interesting part…To find a geocache, you will need to make a basic, free account on making a username for yourself. Remember this as you will need this each time you cache. Second, you will need to type in an addressÑ For example; type in ‘Thurman, NY 12885’or ‘Thurman, NY 12810’ and many geocaches in the area will be made available for preview. You will see on the page how far away from the location you typed in, the geocache is. However, the location is ‘as the crow flies’ which means it may feel more like half of a mile than a tenth due to rugged ground or hills and curves. No worries though, the find of a cache is well worth the smile. Next, click the title of the geocache. This will bring you to a webpage that will give you a description of what the cache looks like, the size of the container, and the coordinates to find such. You will now need to plug in those coordinated to your GPS and get out and search for it! There are many other tips and guidelines to offer for this activity, but it is suggested that to learn more, you visit the website mentioned previously for more information. There one may find videos and helpful tips that explain the idea and creativity of geocaching. Some call it treasure-hunting, some say it is Ô looking for Tupperware in the woods’, but I say it is just plain ol’ fun! However, whatever activity you decide to participate in this summer-- enjoy yourself, take full advantage of this beautiful warm weather, stay hydrated, and use sunscreen and bug spray as much as possible to ensure a more enjoyable experience.

A personal note

After attending the annual Woods Walk with family, I left very enlightened. Gary and Bill, the narrators of the event were very informative and taught a lot about medicinal qualities of each tree and plant we encountered. It was nice to see many locals there and visit with them. I especially appreciated Sally Fiehel selling her ‘suds’ to benefit Skyler Castro; which by the way, smell delightful! If you missed out on this activity this year, do not miss out next year! I feel more prepared for the sicknesses lying ahead. Who knew one could use so many different varieties of nature to soothe an ailment? One remark Gary made concerning a broken bottle and old canister left in the woods was “There’s a story behind this. I left these items here as a reminder. Someone was here before us and someone will be here after us.” That stuck with me and made me think to remember not only how I treat nature but those around me as we are all leaving a legacy of some form. If you would like more information on upcoming events, please pick up a brochure at the Thurman 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 ‘Thurman Happenings’, 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@, my phone number is 623-4552, and you can contact me through Facebook as well. If you have any ‘Thurman Happenings’ you would like to see mentioned, as well as a birthday or anniversary, please do not hesitate to contact me through these means. Have a pleasant weekend and enjoy the sunshine!
