Village dissolution options to be weighed LAKE GEORGE — The proposal to eliminate one level of local municipal government will again be presented to the public. Village of Lake George officials have scheduled a public informational meeting Tuesday, July 27, to present the results of the study of village dissolution that the board commissioned. Funded with a grant from the state Department of State, under the Shared Municipal Services Program, the study was conducted by Fairweather Consulting, and concluded last year. The task was directed by a local steering committee

Mayor: New law may ease problem of congested docks LAKE GEORGE — The Village of Lake George will no longer be permitting overnight parking of boats at their public docks on Beach Road. The Village Board unanimously enacted a law at their last meeting prohibiting vessels from mooring at the docks between \midnight and 8 a.m. daily. The Village operates six public docks on the southern end of the lake. Each dock is 90 feet long and can accommodate up to 36 boats, 28 feet and under. Complaints from boaters wishing to access the docks but finding them continuously occupied, particularly on weekends and special events, have led to the new regulations. “The purpose of our public docks are no different than our metered street parking,” Mayor Blais said. “We wish to allow users

We Finance! Anyone

the maximum opportunity to visit our village, shop, and browse. But some large vessels, particularly those with overnight cabins that take two or three spaces, have stayed at the docks for two or three days and block other users. We are not a marina but seek to turnover as many users as possible, increasing their availability.” Trustees and residents at the meeting related to the necessity to adopt such a law, remarking that unfortunately a few spoil it for many by abusing former privileges. The Village charges $2 per hour for the docks for any size boat. Village officials will issue warnings throughout the initial first days of the law’s enactment, with full enforcement after permanent signage is installed.


Competitors in the annual Adirondack Distance Run held Sunday race down Canada Street in Lake George village toward the finish line 10 miles away in Bolton. Winning the race was Thomas Williams, 22, of Queensbury, with a time of 53:52. Top female racer was Emily Bryans, 42, of Schenectady with a time of 1:02:46. Local finishers included Jordan Ricker,16, of Pottersville with a time of 1:06:06; Scott Wright, 40, of Lake George at 1:15:12; Jennifer Metivier, 39, of Lake George at 1:16:37; Will McGivney, 48, of Diamond Point at 1:16:41; Todd Waldron, 36, of Chestertown at 1:17:20, Evan Collins, 13, of Bolton Landing at 1:21:09; Michael West, 34, of Warrensburg at 1:21:10; Christina Gow, 36, of Lake George at 1:22:04; Carla Burhoe, 44, of Diamond Point at 1:24:41; Mark Schachner, 55, of Lake George at 1:25:57; and James Ross, 20, of Lake George at 1:27:05.

Youth football program slates fundraiser The Warrensburg Youth Football Club is sponsoring a bottle drive July 24 from 9 a.m. to noon at Direct Deposit redemption center on Main Street. The drive will support the various activities of the youth football teams and keep the cost of participating in football low for the young athletes. Those who seek to donate their bottles and cannot get them to Direct Deposit, call Kim Ross at 623-2932 and someone will pick them up.

Smoke Eaters Jamboree coming up The 48th annual Smoke Eaters Jamboree will be held July 23 and 24 at the Warrensburg Town Recreation Field. The event, a long-standing tradition in the North County, includes a midway, rides and entertainment for children and betting games for adults. Headlining the event on Saturday evening is the ever-popular rock band the Refrigerators, known throughout the region for their high-energy performances. The day also features a barbecue at 5 p.m. As always, an outstanding fireworks display will close the event at 9 p.m. Friday, the traditional auction of new and used goods and vehicles, with Jim Galusha as auctioneer, will be held at 6 p.m. Friday admission is $3, with children under 12 free of charge. Saturday admission is $5. All money raised from this event goes back into the community for the many functions that the Warrensburg Volunteer Fire Co. sponsors, including their local scholarships, sponsorship of the baseball and football teams, and underwriting the annual senior citizen Thanksgiving dinner. Fire company president Kevin Geraghty notes that most other emergency response organizations solicit donations from each household in their service area, but they do not. "We have the longest standing fundraising effort in the area, since 1963, and we need your support to keep it going,” Geraghty said. Those who would like to donate an item toward the auction, call 623-9766 and leave a message. Hopefully the weather will co operate this year and make this a banner year for the annual fundraiser.

I recently read an article asking everyone to wear the color red on Fridays to express support for our troops, and I think it is a good idea. I hear that some unions advocate wearing a certain color on particular days to promote solidarity. Wearing red on Fridays will tell your fellow Americans that you support our troops fighting for our freedom. and that you are proud to be an American.

Community honors John Cooper for patriotism, service WARRENSBURG — David Cooper, Stephanie Brown and Jayne Cupp, children of the late John Cooper, together unfurled an American flag, moments before they raised it on a shiny, new flagpole at American Legion Post 446. About 70 friends and relatives of John Cooper, veterans, and townspeople gathered for the ceremony Sunday to dedicate the newly-installed flagpole to World War II veteran John Cooper, well-known in the region for his patriotism and community service. The crowd outside the Legion hall squinted in the hot afternoon sun as they saluted the flag. “As long as this flagpole stands and this Legion Post continues, John will always be remembered,” Legion official Gene Pierce said. Brown and Cupp dabbed tears from their eyes. “John Cooper was a dedicated, patriotic person, and this Post was his first love besides his family,” Post Commander Carson Parker said. Cooper volunteered hours of his time to manning coin drops, recruiting new members and coordinating Post activities including the Boys State program, Parker said. Also, for years Cooper organized the town’s Memorial Day parade on behalf of the Legion post, Parker said. His patriotic volunteer work included searching out graves of veterans throughout the region and getting them properly marked and decorated with flags, Legion officials said. His decades of patriotic volunteer work earned him the status of being chosen as the first Grand Marshall in recent history of Warrensburg’s Memorial Day Parade, David Cooper said. His work extended beyond the Legion-related activities, however. For many years, Cooper raised and lowered American flags at the Warrensburg Town Hall, the Floyd

Bennett Bandstand and the town cemetery. Cooper ’s dedication to the community included taking action when the fire company’s alert siren sounded to unlock the doors and bays at the firehouse so the firefighters could save precious seconds in responding to an emergency call, his children said. Also, Cooper would even make sure the headlights of the responding firefighters’ vehicles were turned off. Also, he served for about 20 years as the Warrensburg Central School crossing guard at Elm Street and Library Avenue, regardless of weather conditions. David Cooper noted that his father was hit by a vehicle twice, but never was a child hurt at the crosswalk he guarded. Army veteran Bill Lamy of Warrensburg recalled how John Cooper was a school bus driver that earned the respect of his young passengers. “John Cooper was a special man, and he had an impact on the community on many fronts,” Lamy said. John Cooper served a tour of duty in World War II, primarily in Germany and France. After an honorable discharge, he returned to northern Warren County to work at Green Mansions in northern Warrensburg as a groundskeeper and maintenance worker. David Cooper ended up following his father ’s footsteps in the military, serving in Operation Desert Shield and Desert Storm in the mideast. As the dedication ceremony concluded, Jayne Cupp said she felt honored to be John Cooper ’s daughter. “The American Legion was like his family — he was always the first to volunteer,” she said. “I’m very proud of what he accomplished. The flagpole and its foundation and surrounding garden were constructed by local Legionnaires Ray Hensler, Gene Pierce and others. For Sunday’s ceremony, a photo of Cooper as Memorial Day Grand Marshal and a rife and set of soldier ’s boots were set at its base.

Jeff Tennyson, recently chosen as Warren County’s new Superintendent of Public Works and John Cooper ’s great nephew, said he also was proud of Cooper ’s community service. Tennyson served as an officer in the U.S. Army. “John was always an inspiration,” he said.

“Considering the recent developments in the mideast, the support of veterans organizations is more important than ever,” he said. “We draw inspiration from the past generation of soldiers and what they’ve been through.”

Gallery From page 1 paintings for sale — and browsers are welcome, Holman said. “The purpose of this gallery is to get art back in the North Country and to get more activity in town,” Holman said, noting that the Arts Center, a non-profit organization, was launched in Warrensburg in 1971, after which it was moved to Glens Falls. Mary Jane Dower, chairwoman of the Chestertown Main Street Enhancement Committee, welcomed the news Monday of the gallery’s opening. She and several dozen other local residents have been taking action this year in revitalizing downtown Chestertown. “This is fantastic — just wonderful,” she said. “This is just what we need — maybe it will give the revitalization effort a needed boost.” Barbara Thomas, President of the North Warren Chamber of Commerce also hailed the new enterprise. “I’m excited — This represents the way Chestertown needs to go,’ she said. “There are a lot of talented artists in the area, and it’s a great addition to Main Street.” Holman said that the Gallery, “Art in Chestertown,” will not only feature local artwork, but it will likely be staffed with an artist at work, so visitors can see artwork evolve before their eyes. Preceding the Grand Opening will be a “Plein-air” PaintOut event on Saturday and Sunday July 10 and 11, with various artists in Chestertown, rain or shine, at work outdoors depicting streetscapes, landscapes and other subjects. Holman said if the weather is good, a dozen or more artists are likely to participate. The public is invited to observe the artists at work, and oil painters, watercolorists, pastel artists and others are invited to participate. Sign-in is at 9 a.m. either day at the new gallery at the Old Harness Shop, on Main St. across from the Church St. intersection, Holman said. Artists seeking to participate or those seeking to volunteer are welcome to contact Holman for details at: or 8034034. Works created will go on display for summer at the gallery. For years, the Harness Shop was a store featuring artwork, gifts and fine crafts, but most recently the building was collection center for used goods on behalf of The Priory retreat. This “Art in Chestertown” gallery is the first outlet for the North Country Arts Center that is dedicated entirely to art display and sales. Currently, the NCAC-sponsored displays are accommodated in the Glens Falls City Hall gallery, the Glens Falls Post Office, and the lobby of The Glen at Highland Meadows in Queensbury. Barbara Wilson of the Friends of Chester Library expressed enthusiasm about the gallery venture, noting that Tom Hughes of Lazy River Garden Center in Warrensburg deserved appreciation for the donation of flowers which decorate the front of the new gallery, which will be open through Sept. 4. Holman said the idea of establishing the gallery in Chestertown was propelled by a concern that not much was happening downtown as far as public display of art, with the exception of the Town of Chester Library. The idea of launching the gallery in downtown Chestertown has been met with enthusiasm from artists around the region, as well as local officials and residents, Holman said. “Everyone is excited about this,” he said. “This is a winwin situation that may lead to something more.”

One Hundred Years Ago - July 1910


lueberries are said to be plentiful on Cat Mountain near Riverbank. Nearly everyone in Hague has whooping cough. Sunday, July 24, 1910, it was 96 degrees in the shade. Everyone is haying. The crop on the old ground and new seeding is good but on old dry meadows the three last dry summers and the white grubs have destroyed nearly all the grass roots. Oats are a good crop. A goodly number of Bakers Mills townspeople went on Monday, July 25, 1910 to make a haying bee to cut the hay for Etson Hitchcock who is ill with rheumatism. Some of the women went along to do the cooking.

Girl dead, man flees Jennie LaFountain, who was shot on the Boulevard in Glens Falls on the evening of June 12, 1910 by Frank Ciliberto, an Italian, died Friday evening, July 22, 1910 in the Glens Falls Hospital. The child, she was only 16 years old, was taken to the hospital on the night of the shooting and at first she began to improve, but a week before her death, however, she took a turn for the worse and failed to rally. Ciliberto disappeared completely and no trace of him has since been found, although Sheriff Smith, his deputies and the police force of Glens Falls have worked faithfully to find a trace of the murderer. The funeral was held Monday, July 25, 1910 from St. Alphonsus Church, Glens Falls. Sheriff Smith doubled the reward from $250 to $500, having secured the consent of the Board of Supervisors, and hundreds of circulars containing Ciliberto’s photograph have been circulated.

Gone in the blink of an eye George H. Taylor of Luzerne, 56, was instantly killed on Friday morning, July 22, 1910, by a large gear weighing seven tons falling on his body while he was at work in the pulp mill at Hadley. The accident occurred about 10 o’clock when the repair gang was fixing the shafting in the large gear wheels. William Hughes and Harmon Taylor, the only witnesses to the tragedy, state the blocking under the gear gave away which allowed the big wheel to fall about eight inches striking Mr. Taylor, who laid on his back underneath the machinery, on his chest and causing instantaneous death.

SATURDAY July 10, 2010

It took quite a while to get the body out from under the heavy load of iron. The deceased was born in Derby, England and came to America when he was but two years old and settled in Luzerne. He had been working at the mill for the past twenty years. He is survived by a widow, one son and five daughters. The bereavement in his close knit family is hard for them to bear.

begin in a few days. The structure will be of brick with brown stone trimmings and will be ready for occupancy by the last of September 1910. C.W. Sanderspree of Fort Edward and A.J. Dubee, of Glens Falls are the contractors. A.E. Prescott has purchased the building opposite the Adirondack Hotel (now Rite Aid) in Warrensburgh, in which the bank has been located since April 1, 1910 and will later fix it over for a jewelry store.

New car turns into giant fireball

Wedding bells

H.W. Mundy, of Chestertown, had bad luck on Friday, July 8, 1910 when he was on an automobile trip from Albany back to his home. He had purchased a new Peerless limousine in Albany and was taking it home where he planned to open a garage. About a mile this side of Saratoga, one of the rear tires blew out. Winding the wheel with rope in order to save the rim, he proceeded on his journey intending to get a new tire in Glens Falls, but he failed to reach there. Everything was running along smoothly when he noticed a flame shooting out from beneath the car. Fearing an explosion, he immediately brought the machine to a stop and jumped out, having just enough time to secure his suit case before the rear of the automobile was enveloped in flames. The machine now lies a total wreck about a mile and a half this side of Wilton. The fire started, it is believed, from a leak in the gasoline pipe next to the carburetor. It is fully covered by insurance to the extent of $1,600.

George B. Hall, of Indian Lake, and Miss Carrie Smith, of Warrensburgh, were married at the home of the groom’s brother, C.J. Hall on River Street, Warrensburgh, by the Rev. E.J. Guernsey, pastor of the Methodist Episcopal Church. They left town on the trolley car for a wedding trip down the Hudson River. Mr. Hall is a prominent lumberman.

Ghostly apparition Hon. George R. Stevens, proprietor of the Stevens House, Lake Placid, a hunter of note, saw three wolves in the Saranac River country where he had been fishing recently. The last wolf killing on record in the Adirondack region was at Brandeth Lake in 1893. Three years ago (1907) reliable men reported wolves seen in the town of Peru, Clinton County. (Note, although wolves do not technically exist in the Adirondacks, they are still occasionally reported even in our time.)

Remember the Golden Rule? T

he political upheaval occurring this week in Thurman is deeply unfortunate, and it’s not just that the town’s public image suffers when some residents delve into mud-slinging, false accusations, backstabbing and gossip-mongering. The distressing aspect is the outcome — that three honest, upright, dedicated community servants are leaving their positions — one ousted by the town board, and two top officials abruptly resigning. Thurman Supervisor Red Pitkin confirmed his resignation this week, after a contentious town board meeting last Tuesday that included angry, accusatory discussion over how a youth recreation director ’s job position was handled. This was after a seven-month series of skirmishes between the board and some townspeople over whether the Thurman Emergency Squad, which the town supports, should have prudent financial management, accurate bookkeeping and stop enriching its treasury while burden-

ing taxpayers. The town government has been withholding their annual payment of $33,000 to the squad pending receipt of a financial statement from the agency detailing their annual expenses and accumulated surplus. Squad officials countered that their surplus money is needed for upcoming additional expenses so the squad can appropriately provide services the townspeople expect. Also at issue has been the squad’s low response record. During the first three months of 2010, the squad had responded to three emergency calls out of 24 in its service territory — a ratio that improved dramatically soon after it was made public. Also, there was the issue of the squad’s ever-changing financial figures and a lengthy delay on an audit requested by the town board. Then, after an audit was received months late, it seemed incomplete and further information was needed on the present expenses and balance. The last straw, apparently, was that the squad announced they’d hired an attorney to represent them in settling the dispute. In response, the town board decided to have their own legal representation to negotiate their positions. But such an action means that taxpayer money would fund strategic fighting amongst neighbors, rather than compassion, cooperation and generosity that one would expect in a small rural town. The discord and stress from these and other incidents prompted Pitkin’s resignation, he said Monday. So Lawrence “Red” Pitkin, known for providing thoughtful, objective insight into crucial issues at the county level — and saving area taxpayers a lot of money — is stepping down from public service. For months, Pitkin has served with distinction. He has been a strong advocate of open, honest government in both in the conduct of town and county business. He’s also successfully navigated his way through some contentious issues during his 18 months in office. Appointed to his post in December 2008, he established a policy of accountability. The town needed it. There was a surplus of more than $800,000 that wasn’t accounted for — paid for by taxpayers, contrary to state law. Town officials didn’t even know that certain bank accounts even existed. In town meetings, he’s encouraged free expression of public opinion, whether it’s gripes, rants, accusations, constructive suggestions for change — or even praise. He and board member James Ligon have spearheaded an effort to put the finances of the town back on track. They’ve taken strides to fully computerize and modernize town record-keeping, while boosting accountability in town government. He and Ligon have led an effort to bring broadband to town and thus boost local business enterprises as well as residents’ connection to the outside world. They’ve also sought to improve various governmental procedures and boost the town infrastructure. Ligon also quit this week, soon after being accused of a bogus conflict of interest because his wife worked on the youth commission board, a position that has no pay. Ligon is known for dedicating long hours delving into local issues and prudent municipal finance. He’ll be missed because he was an honest man with integrity —

one who wouldn’t bend the truth for political gain. Then there’s his wife, Maria Ligon, who’s worked many hours tirelessly for no pay working to create new programs for local youth. After accusations were directed at her over her acBy Thom Randall tions in seeking to replace the youth recreation director, she was voted off the youth commission Tuesday by the town board. This is a shameful development, one that will hurt the youth of the town. She had developed new programs for local youth and expanded others. Her work has meant a record number of children have been attending various events like the Thurman Children’s Christmas Party, complete with community tree-trimming, a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus, gifts, caroling, and crafts and more. Or the town Halloween party, complete with contests and games, plus the Easter party with an egg hunt — featuring about 600 eggs — which included all generations decorating eggs together, as well as contests. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. She arranged a full slate of activities in July for the town’s youth — far beyond merely kickball, but programs on Adirondack Mammals, orienteering, the wilderness, and productive gardening. Such programming takes imagination, and the ability to recruit others for volunteer work, and follow-through on arranging all the details. She’s also silently donated a fair sum of her own money into these programs. Asked Monday about her accomplishments, she deferred the credit to the volunteers that worked with her. So we have three talented, dedicated officials leaving public service in Thurman. Much like a half-dozen others who have in recent years been hounded out of office by back-stabbers. If several other honest upright people step forward to serve the town, will they put up with being smeared and unjustly vilified? Does it mean that for town officials to achieve success in politics, they need to be two-faced and engage in shifty, underhanded behavior? Do they have to make deals with unscrupulous people? Do they have to cut political deals to keep the back-stabbers and loudmouths at bay? Only Thurman residents can make the difference — by merely following the Golden Rule. We need to show kindness and consideration to each other — and put others first in our lives, as has been preached for millenniums. People need to exert more self control over what they say — to be more thoughtful of whether the statements are true or not, and how they will effect others’ others encouraging the positive elements of others’ personalities. We need more people acting like Jean Reynolds — she knew how to bring out the best in others — and less like they’re appearing on the Jerry Springer show.

little shakin’ goin’ on—oh, yeah! The North Country earthquake that gave us a little wake up call a bit before 2 p.m. was felt and heard in our area on June 23. I thought I was imagining things when one end of the house “rumbled” but when I saw the vases on the window sill had fallen and stepping outside saw my full fuel tank leaning against the house, and a crack across the small sidewalk, I knew something was happening. I later learned that the fuel tank weighed over a ton and one end had been shifted so that one side leaned again the outside wall and vibrated. I can’t end this story for you as the fuel barrel has to be pumped, and then it has to be reset (the tank). Did anyone else get shook?

Thurman officials submit resignations By Thom Randall THURMAN — The two top officials in local government have submitted their resignations after a recent contentious town board meeting, and the political landscape in Thurman is likely to shift soon. Thurman Supervisor Lawrence “Red” Pitkin resigned last week, citing a health issue related to stress prompted by political upheaval, and Deputy SuperviLawrence ‘Red’ sor James Ligon submitted Pitkin his resignation, effective immediately, soon after the June 29 Thurman Board meeting. Pitkin’s resignation is effective July 31. Warren County Republican Elections Commissioner Mary Beth Casey said Tuesday that both positions — the supervisor post and one town board position — will be on the ballot in November ’s general election. In the meantime, the remaining members — four through July 31 — can choose an interim supervisor and appoint a temporary board member. Through that date, Pitkin is fully empowered to help make that choice. After Aug. 1, the three remaining board members, Charlie Bills, Al Vasak and Leon Galusha, would have to cast a unanimous vote on the temporary positions. Citizens interested in the town board position may pick up and circulate petitions immediately so their names can appear on the September Primary election ballot, but for the Supervisor post, it’s a different matter, she said. With Pitkin’s resignation effective July 31, the time is past for Republican or Democrat petitions to be circulated for the supervisor post. However, those interested in the post may seek such support as an Independent candidate. The major parties can meet and submit names for their endorsed choices, however.

Emergency squad could use help


or check on the Thurman website if you have a computer, or stop by or call the Town Hall at 623-9649. For the July meetings; the Fiscal has been changed to Monday, July 19, 6:30 p.m. Leaving the Regular Monthly meeting on Tuesday, July 20, with the time changed to 6:30 p.m. The Vacation Bible School at the Thurman Baptist Church on South Johnsburg Road is scheduled to be held Monday, July 19 through Friday, July 23, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Pastor Bert and Carol Kuehner of Canada will be the special guess for the week. This is a special week and is open to all ages. Because its summer and folks may be on vacation, you can check before you plan on attending. The Quilting Club is to meet at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, July 12, at the town hall. Call Myra at 623-2633 to confirm. The Occupancy Tax Committee is to meet on Friday, July 16, at 10 a.m. at the Glen Lodge. Call Jim to confirm at 6239961.

There will be fresh garden veggies, eggs, maple products and everything except snow. Stop by and say hello. One gripe came in with the opinion that after all of these impromptu special meetings at the town level, that it certainly looks like some folks do not want to see our community getting a helping hand in sickness and emergencies? And a question came in asking where their money would go if they sent in a donation to the emergency squad? My suggestion: call 623-9649 at the town hall for these answers or attend the town board meeting on Tuesday, July 20, at 6:30 p.m. Late incoming gripes were about cemeteries— only four are being mowed and cared for (Thurman has over 20).

SATURDAY July 10, 2010

Lecture on artist Schwarzburg at Marcella Sembrick Museum BOLTON LANDING – Artist, professor, and philosopher Peter Schwarzburg was considered by many to be one of the greatest intellects of the 20th century who excelled in philosophy, science, teaching, and not least of all, landscape painting. The late Schwarzburg created about 100 paintings of Lake George (1945-2002) at the estate of Marcella Sembrich. Neil A. Chassman, a professor and longtime friend of the artist will deliver the lecture “The Intersection of the Art of Peter Schwarzburg and the Estate of Marcella Sembrich” at the museum, 4800 Lake Shore Drive, on Wednesday, July 14. The cost is $5. Chassman’s talk will include a visual journey through the works Schwarzburg painted from scenic Sembrich Point, facing the Sagamore Hotel, which he says combine distinctly American and European traditions with a striking freshness and a powerful, sensitive individuality. Schwarzburg was a New York City resident but had spent summers in Bolton Landing since childhood. Chassman grew up in New York City and has traveled, taught, and lectured throughout the U.S. and abroad. He was chairman, Department of Art History, Southern Methodist University; chairman, Department of Art and Art History, Western Illinois University; and Visiting Senior Professor, Brisbane College, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. Chassman met the artist back in 1959 when he was a student and Schwarzburg was teaching at The New School in Man-

hattan. “He was teaching phenomology and existentialism in the fields of psychology and philosophy,” recalled Chassman. “Peter was so brilliant that in order to be his student you needed to be able to handle his intelligence, which was not easy because he thought in leaps and bounds.” Though his first love was painting, Chassman said he never taught it because “he wanted to keep his creative expression separate from his teaching.” Still, Schwarzburg went on to teach some of the greats in the art world, including the sculptor Joel Shapiro, Tad Day, Simon Gaon, Ronald Denota, Richard Rash and Myron Heise. “He mentored New York City’s most famous artists,” said Chassman, who teaches Chinese language and culture at the Woodstock Day School. “They all bowed down to him. Artists, philosophers, and musicians considered him the grand master.” Chassman said that though Schwarzburg and Marcella Sembrich never met, he derived great inspiration from painting at her estate and from her music. “He knew as much about classical music as anyone I knew in my life. Peter was a true renaissance man. His paintings were one of the three strongest elements of his character: his art, intellect, and humanity. Peter was very generous with his time and with people when they needed it.” So profound was Schwarzburg’s in-

Pitkin From page 7 Both of the county Election Commissioners, Casey and Democrat Bill Monfort, said this simultaneous resignation of two town board members was unprecedented. “In my 30 years here, I’ve never seen this happen,” Montfort said Tuesday. Thurman Supervisor Red Pitkin confirmed his resignation Sunday, and said he wouldn’t likely revoke it. The June 29 town board meeting — that included angry, accusatory discussion over how a youth recreation director ’s job position was handled — was apparently the last straw for Pitkin, who had been considering stepping down for weeks. For months, he’d been involved in skirmishes between the board and the officials of the Thurman Emergency Squad, which the town supports, contending the agency should have prudent financial management, accurate bookkeeping and not build up an excess surplus in their treasury. The town government has been withhold-

fluence on his student, and later, friend, Chassman wrote the book, “Pure Genius: The Art and Mind of Peter Schwarzburg,” in 2005. Following his lecture, Chassman will sign copies of the book, which will be for sale at the museum. A reception will be held at the newly-opened Silverwood Gallery in the Huddle, just south of Bolton Landing, where several of Mr. Schwarzburg's Lake George paintings will be on display. The Marcella Sembrich Memorial Association, Inc., a not-for-profit organization founded in 1940, dedicates its existence and purpose to honor the life and career of internationally renowned soprano, Marcella Sembrich. The MSMA maintains Sembrich’s former teaching studio as a museum displaying Sembrich’s personal effects that reflect on her daily life of teaching and her career. The MSMA also carries on the fine tradition of music through a summer concert series presenting renowned international musicians in concert at the studio. Media Sponsor for the museum’s 2010 season is The Lake George Mirror. Programming is sponsored in part by Warren County, the Town of Bolton, Bolton Recreation Commission, and Stewart’s Holiday Match. For more information about the Marcella Sembrich Memorial Association, the Opera Museum or for a calendar of the MSMA's 2008 summer program, visit , or contact the MSMA at 644-2431 (office) or 644-9839 (museum).

ing their annual payment of $33,000 to the squad pending receipt of a comprehensive, accurate financial statement. The squad recently informed the town board they’d hired an attorney to represent them in settling the dispute. In response, the town board decided to have their own legal representation to negotiate their positions. Pitkin said spending such money on lawyers was a waste of taxpayers’ cash. The discord and stress from these and other incidents prompted Pitkin’s resignation, he said Monday. “I don’t see taking back my resignation,” he said. “This has to do with the ongoing town issues — I’m tired of fighting insane battles over little crazy things.” Pitkin said he was tired of witnessing false accusations and back-stabbing in local politics, and he didn’t want to join the fray. “Too many people like to instigate things and speak in half-truths,” he said. Maintaining his integrity, he said, was most important at this point. “I’m a better man than a politician,” he said.

Local Marina and Watersports School to Host Watersports Demo Day


Schroon Lake Marina and the Inverted Wakeboard and Waterski School are hosting a demo day along with a celebration for the opening of the newly improved watersports store, Hydrotherapy, located at Schroon Lake Marina in Schroon Lake, NY on Sunday July 18th. The demo day will be from 10am-5pm and include sales on watersports equipment, accessories, and apparel. Riders can demo gear by going for a ride on the Inverted Wakeboard and Waterski School’s Supra ski boat. There will be a “Wakeboarding Unleashed” gaming competition on X-Box, prizes, raffles, and food. Schroon Lake Marina, formerly Maypine Marine, is celebrating their fifth year of business after being purchased by Richard Stolen, owner of the nearby Loon Lake Marina in Chestertown, NY. Marina General Manager Craig Kennedy owns and operates the Inverted Wakeboard and Waterski School, also on Loon Lake in Chestertown. His love of wakeboarding drove him to start his own school to spread his excitement for watersports. Craig and Rich hope to give another boost to the watersports that they love so much by selling high quality HO skis, Liquid Force wakeboards, and Supra ski boats. Owner Rich Stolen said “it would be great to have everyone come and see all the new equipment and really learn how these sports are evolving.” This led to the idea of hosting a demo day along with the introduction of a new watersports store called Hydrotherapy to showcase wakeboards, skis, tubes, accessories, and apparel. Marina Manager Craig Kennedy stated: “I really want to see more kids out here as excited about these sports as I am. I’m hoping that by having the Inverted School boat here we can generate some more interest, teach everybody something new, show them our love for inboard boats, and of course have a great time.” Schroon Lake Marina is a full service marina that offers not only watersports equipment but also a full service repair shop, marine accessories, boat sales, dock sales, boat rentals, seasonal dock space, and gas right on the water.

Youth can now bounce at Lake George Forum

From page 1

LAKE GEORGE — Traditionally the venue for ice skating and trade shows, the Lake George Forum is now featuring bounce houses for the entertainment of children, Forum officials said this week. Youth can get some fun exercise in air-conditioned comfort with the addition of bounce houses, rides and activities for all ages, they said. Such activities are available at The Forum every day of the week beginning at 11 a.m. and until 7 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, until 9 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and until 6 p.m. Sundays. Entrance charge is $6 hourly, or a $10 day pass. Group rates are available, as are discounted birthday specials. For details, call 668-2200 or

behind curtains, voters will be handed ballots, and they‘ll be blackening in oval circles that are adjacent to their chosen candidates’ names. They will be making such a selection while sitting at a table with a Ushaped piece of cardboard providing some degree of privacy. Voters will then take their ballot to a central voting machine, push a button and feed the ballot into a slot, when it will either be accepted or rejected, based on the readability of the markings, and the legitimacy of the choices. “This will be easier than anyone anticipated,” county Republican Election Commissioner Mary Beth Casey said Monday as she prepared to train about two dozen election inspectors at the county Municipal Center on operation of the new machines. The new devices, however, are not easy on the taxpayers’ wallets. Although purchase of the 70 ballot scanners and 22 computerized ballot marking devices for the visually impaired cost the county about $900,000 including the software, 95 percent of the sum was refunded by the federal government. But because of the machines, the county Board of elections’ annual budget has now increased about $150,000 from now on. The hiked expenses are primarily because the ballots must be custom-printed for each election, and the federally-required number to be on hand for an election means as many as 126,000 ballots must be prepared and purchased by the county at a cost of 57 cents each, or a total of $71,820 per election. The additional expenses of temperature-controlled storage, transportation, testing and securing of the machines and conducting newly

SATURDAY July 10, 2010 required audits means that far more will always be spent on voting with the computerized scanners than with the prior lever-operated technology. Any voter within Warren Co. is invited to attend any of the voter outreach sessions which include machine demonstrations. The ballot marking device voting system, as well as the scanner machines are also available for demonstration purposes at the Board of Election’s office every day during business hours. “This is the first change in voting systems in about 100 years — We want our public to make this transition as smoothly as possible and we feel that education is the best method to accomplish this goal,” Casey said. Voter Outreach Sessions and machine demonstrations: • Saturday July 10, from 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Lake Luzerne Town Hall, 539 Lake Ave., Lake Luzerne. • Saturday July 17, from 11:30 a.m-2 p.m. at the Lake George Town Hall, Upper Level, at 20 Old Post Road., Lake George. • Saturday July 24, from 11:30 a.m.-2p.m. at the Warrensburg Town Hall at 3797 Main St. Warrensburg. • Saturday July 31, from 11:30-2 p.m. at the Wevertown Community Center, 2370 State Route 28 Wevertown, NY ( Town of Johnsburg). • Saturday Aug. 7 from 11:30 a.m.2p.m. at the Thurman Town Hall at 311 Athol Rd, Athol. • Saturday Aug. 21 from 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Horicon Community Center, 6604 State Route 8, Brant Lake. • Saturday Aug. 28 from 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Hague Community Center, 9793 Graphite Mt.

Dissolution From page 1 comprised of Town and Village residents, chaired by Village Trustee John Root. A final report, containing three possible options, was presented and accepted by the Village Board in July 2009. The report contained a summary of present Village services, assets, debts and possible disposition of them if the public indeed voted to dissolve the municipality. The initial two public hearings, that were lightly attended, raised many concerns and additional questions from Village and Town residents. All three options presented in the study forecast a reduction in Village taxes of between 19 percent and 30 percent while town taxes outside the village were estimated to increase from 9 percent to 40 percent. While local officials have said they couldn’t support a plan that forecast a tax increase, the sticking point is how to distribute assets — about $12 million — and village debt, estimated last year at $3 million. Fairweather recommended the formation of districts to directly assign costs for services to those who receive them — like street lighting — and to assign the debt only to the village residents who incurred it. Much of the impact of dissolution upon the two separate communities would depend upon a plan, agreed upon by Town and Village officials, prior to a vote. Trustee John Root and Trustee Raymond Perry, both who served on the steering committee, voice opinions at a recent meeting that agreements between the Town and Village boards is unlikely due to the complexity of the issues and the relative size of the Village’s assets, revenues and debt. Without a guaranteed plan to offer Village residents, the Village board of trustees appeared split recently on whether the matter should be placed on the ballot at the Village’s March 2011 general election. Only village residents are allowed to vote on the matter according to State law, and the Village would cease to exist one and half years following an affirmative vote. Two previous studies conducted in 1972 and 1988 resulted in no vote. Village Mayor Robert Blais said this week that the July 27 hearing will be held to gauge the interest of the village residents in holding such a vote and it is likely to answer some additional questions and concerns. “We have a very wellknown and successful corporation,” the mayor said referring to the village municipality. “Our stockholders are our taxpayers and residents that have become used to certain services and a quality of life — We need to find out how they feel about the future and how they wish their Board of Trustees to proceed from here.”

Last cast for a cherished outdoor writer


he woods were a bit stiller, the waters a bit calmer and the wildlife just a bit quieter across the North Country this past weekend, as news spread that the Press Republican’s long-time, outdoor writer, Dennis Aprill, had died unexpectedly Saturday, July 3 from a form of pancreatic cancer. Anglers and guides, paddlers and hikers, birders, hunters and fellow outdoor writers were saddened with the news. Aprill first began his popular, award winning "Outdoor Perspective" column in the Sunday issue of the Press Republican Sept. 9, 1990. He continued to regularly produce a full page of outdoor news for the Sunday issue, for more than 20 years, without missing a single week. His columns offered a little bit of something for all audiences. Whether it was big game hunting, bird watching, wild flowers or flyfishing, Aprill managed to collect something to entertain and enlighten his readers every Sunday for more than 1,000 weeks in a row. He never missed a beat. It is a feat that is difficult to fathom, especially considering the fact that most of the outdoor writers I know are incredible procrastinators. Most writers prefer to be in the field or on the water, rather than sitting around writing about the same. However, Aprill, with seeming ease and recognized excellence, managed to do both. At the same time, he also worked full-time as a professor of journalism at Plattsburgh State and managed to raise a fine family. Always an excellent source of information about the outdoors, Aprill worked hard to bring together many of the region’s finest fishing authorities to author chapters of his book, Good Fishing in the Adirondacks. He updated and released a second edition of the book this past spring. He had also authored several hiking guidebooks including Paths Less Traveled, Short Treks in the Adirondacks and Beyond

and had co-authored a field guide, Mammals of the Adirondacks. Although Aprill’s "Outdoor Perspective" column in the Sunday, Press Republican was read far and wide, he also contributed regularly to numerous national and regional magazines including Vermont Outdoors, Adirondack Life, Sports Afield and the NYS Conservationist. As a writer, Aprill's work was highly regarded and he regularly earned awards from the NYS Outdoor Writers Association, the New England Outdoor Writers Association and the Outdoor Writers Association of America. He was honored as well by the state Department of Environmental Conservation Earth Day Media Partnership, and in 1999, the Woodmen of the World named him their Conservationist of the Year. In 2009, Aprill was inducted into the NYS Outdoorsman Hall of Fame, joining the ranks of such local notables as Bob Brown of Saranac Lake, the late Nellie Staves of Tupper Lake, Bill Wellman of Plattsburgh and the late, Francis Betters of Wilmington, who also was a regular contributor to Aprill’s outdoor page. In recent months, Aprill’s page also featured stories written by a number of fine writers including Elizabeth Lee of Westport and Dan Ladd from Fort Ann. Aprill also continued to feature regular weekly columns written by the late, great Francis Betters. Betters’ writings, about flyfishing the Ausable River, are as timely today as when he first wrote them. The fly hatches he studied and the fly patterns he created are still “spot on accurate.” Aprill presented outdoor news in a manner that allowed it to be easily digested by all users. He also provided a role model for families by regularly involving his children in his outdoor adventures. He was both a sportsman’s advocate and an environmentalist, a feat accomplished by

walking a line that is far more difficult to travel when walking and talking within the Blueline. He is survived by his wife, Kathy; son, Colin and daughter, Karalyn. Services for Dennis Aprill will be held on Thursday, July 8 at the Brown Funeral Home in Plattsburgh. Calling hours will begin at 6 pm followed by a Celebratory Observance in Dennis' memory beginning at 7:30 pm.

Caldwell church has lengthy, influential history Church is celebrating 200th anniversary Caldwell Presbyterian Church of Lake George has a long and remarkable history — and this summer, the congregation is observing the 200th anniversary of its founding. Sunday July 11, Caldwell parishioners will be holding a community celebration, with a worship service at 10 a.m. followed by a reception at 11:15 a.m. The church is located at 71 Montcalm St. Caldwell Presbyterian was founded in 1810 by James Caldwell. He was an entrepreneur, regional grocer, merchant, land investor and founding father of the village of Caldwell — the forerunner of the present municipality of Lake George. Caldwell laid the cornerstone and oversaw the construction of the first church building, located on Canada St. overlooking Artillery Cove, where in 1757 French Army General Louis-Joseph de Montcalm landed his troops for the siege of Fort William Henry. At the dedication ceremony in 1810, Caldwell proclaimed, “This shall be called a Presbyterian Church but it shall be open to all evangelical denominations.” Caldwell’s open attitude extended to the church’s ministerial staff, considering that its first Presbyterian preacher to serve the church regularly was the Rev. Anthony Paul, a Mohican Indian. This inclusive attitude exists to this day, church members have said. Caldwell was fairly isolated in the early 1800s, and there were only about 500 inhabitants by 1820. The first recorded church meeting was held in 1814, although the church was not officially sanctioned by the regional Presbytery, based in Troy. The Caldwell church’s Sunday school, however, was operated with zeal by Laura Baldwn, who in 1830 was instrumental in not only inspiring a religious revival, but she joined other parishioners in aligning with the temperance movement — their spiritual fervor led to reorganization of the church and formal recognition by the regional Presbytery. The present building on Montcalm St. was constructed in 1855 and 1856 on land donated by heirs of James Caldwell. Then in 1893, an addition — which now houses the “Coffee Room” — was built. In 1957, the middle room, offices and bathrooms were added to the original building. The following year, the Christian Education wing was added, and in 1978, the preschool addition was built. Through its 200 years, Caldwell Church has been influential in local education and culture. The first library in Lake George was organized as part of the Caldwell church, and it remained such a center of public information until the present library was completed. Also, the area’s first Kindergarten was held at Caldwell Presbyterian, until the program was taken over by the Lake George Board of Education. In more recent years, the church’s preschool program has continued to assist youngsters in their readiness for formal education.

Although the negative economic effects of the Civil War stressed the church’s finances, and an 1866 tornado damaged the church steeple, the reunification of two factions of the Presbyterian Church in 1869 prompted financial gifts from summer visitors to relieve the hardship. Due to the new financial footing, the church was able to hire its first full-time pastor, Rev. James Lamb, in 1870. As Caldwell Presbyterian’s centennial approached, an addition was constructed, the sanctuary was refurbished, and the free public library was established. Church membership grew from an average of about 30 to 100 or so. This strength in membership and finances allowed the church to support local missions at French Mountain and Bay Road. To this day, the church has maintained its spiritual dedication, inclusiveness and welcoming spirit that has deep roots in its founding 200 years ago. — based on a history of Caldwell Presbyterian by Jeff Brozyna.
