Hickory Ski Center redevelopment plans under way

Bucking the prevailing trend, county mortgage tax receipts are increasing

By Thom Randall

By Thom Randall

WARRENSBURG — Hickory Ski Center, historically an attraction for winter sports enthusiasts but closed since 2005, is likely to reopen as soon as this winter. William Van Pelt, a businessman from Texas, is investing enough money to refurbish the ski center and offer new amenities expected in a modern resort, Warrensburg Supervisor Kevin Geraghty said this week. The ski center — considered a throwback to the classic days of skiing with no snowmaking, no grooming and no modern chairlifts — will be extensively renovated with grooming, and plenty of new features and offerings, Geraghty said. “We’re pleased the Hickory Hill will now have an infusion of cash to refurbish it and make it viable again,” he said. It’s an important attraction not only for Warrensburg, but for all of Warren County.” Geraghty said Van Pelt was considering investing in snowmaking equipment, which would allow for a longer skiing season, in addition to extensive upgrades to the lodge and

QUEENSBURY — After slump in revenue occurring during the recent economic upheaval, Warren County mortgage tax receipts are now rebounding, and are now running above last year ’s level. The county’s portion of its 1.25 percent mortgage tax is $509,439 for June, compared with $398,363 for June 2008, a hefty increase over last year, according to figures supplied by County Clerk Pamela Vogel. If this upswing in revenue occurring over the past several months continues its clear trend over the rest of 2009, the county may beat the budgeted revenues of $3.4 million for her department, Vogel said this week. Vogel cautioned, however, that a portion of the increase is due to the mortgage tax being boosted last year from 1 percent to 1.25 percent. But

Teens from afar are busy fixing up area homes, parks and church buildings By Thom Randall WARRENSBURG — Liz Sebald stepped out of her Main St. home Monday and looked at about 20 teens from across the nation busily painting her house. Her husband Jerry, getting on in years, hadn’t been able to accomplish the task himself, she said.

”This is an answer to our prayers,” she said, watching some of the teens from YouthWorks mission scrape paint, while others applied a thick, fresh coat.

WARRENSBURG — The state Department of Environmental Conservation’s regional office in Warrensburg has won statewide attention after being certified as a “green” building, DEC Commissioner Pete Grannis announced Monday. The U.S. Green Building Council gave the building a Gold rating for its energy efficiency and environmental capability in accord with national building standards, Grannis said. “This is the first DEC building to be so awarded, and the first building in the Adirondack Park to receive a Gold rating,” Grannis said. “Utilizing buildings meeting these standards demonstrates DEC's commitment to conserve, improve and protect our environment, combat climate change, and

build a sustainable future for generations to come.” Located just north of the center of town off Golf Course Road, the DEC offices were renovated and expanded in 2005 to become more functional, more energy efficient and environmentally friendly, DEC spokesman David Winchell said. “The idea was to make the building more sustainable, reduce its carbon footprint and energy use, and provide for alternative vehicles,” he said. About 8,000 square feet of office space and meeting rooms were added onto the original building which first opened in 1963. The original portion of the building was renovated, boosting the efficiency of heating, cooling and lighting.

An energy analysis indicated that the building is about 30 percent more energy efficient than conventional construction, while providing better interior and exterior lighting, and more efficient air distribution. There are also triple-glazed windows, extra insulation in the walls and roof, waterless urinals in the men’s rooms, automated lighting controls throughout, and all stormwater is retained on site. DEC also provides alternative-fuel vehicles for staff field work, electric vehicle recharging stations and a bicycle rack for employee and visitor use. Statewide, DEC now operates more than 500 alternative-fuel, light-duty vehicles.

Stamping Concrete Since 1981 Custom stamped concrete has many residential applications. Driveways, patios, pool decks, walkways and basement floors take on the appearance of slate, cobblestone or fieldstone, yet is stronger and more durable than conventional concrete. Custom stamped concrete fills the same construction needs as regular concrete. Architecturally designed custom stamped concrete is several times stronger than brick pavers and other paving systems. Unlike brick pavers, stamped concrete is nonporous when finished - making it waterproof, stain and weather resistant. With custom stamped concrete you avoid the problems encountered with hand-layed products. You no longer have to worry about unleveling due to frost or vegetation growing between individual bricks.

Abenaki Native Americans, basketmakers, have long history in Lake George By Christopher Roy & David Benedict Special to the Adirondack Journal This article focuses on the Norman Johnson family, one of the last Abenaki families selling baskets to tourists at Lake George. Members of the Johnson clan and related Abenaki families, who accomplished much to contribute to the development of Lake George, are still living in the area, according to authors and anthropologists Christopher Roy and David Benedict. LAKE GEORGE — Of the 100,000 or more visitors who visit Lake George annually, there are but few who know of the existence of a family of full-blooded Native Americans in the village. But over many decades, many knew Norman Johnson not from his background, but as the man who sold sweet-grass baskets and birch-bark canoes. On September 8, 1912, the New York Times published a substantial article entitled “Basketmaking Indians of Lake George” focusing on the last Abenaki family making a living from the basket trade in the Lake George area – the family of Norman and Angeline Sarah (Otodoson) Johnson. The article noted how little tourists knew about the Johnsons, despite the estimate that “one out of every ten” had likely encountered Norman Johnson as a basket- and canoe-seller. The Times article observed, “Further than that they would not know, unless, perchance, they had casually dropped into the little one-story structure that serves as a store for the sale of baskets and birch-bark souvenirs and as the Summer home for the family of Johnson, who are nine in number.” Many visitors were likely unaware of the family’s history – that the “old lady is a full-blooded but exiled member of a still-existing tribe of Indians.” The Times correspondent detailed the experience of purchasing a basket from the Johnson family. The sides and counters of the salesroom were “piled ceiling-high with baskets that give forth the fragrant aroma of sweet grass somewhat less pleasing now, perhaps, because of the intermingling of the odors of the last cooked meal that was prepared behind a pair of half-closed curtains, multicolored and of intricate design....A boy, or perhaps a girl, with characteristic high cheekbones and jet black hair, is behind the counter to sell the goods. After making change for the customer, a word is passed about the weather.” Norman Johnson was “tall and slender, with high cheekbones

Members of the Johnson family — Abenaki Indians crafting and selling baskets and canoes for many years in Lake George — are shown in front of their shop in the village. Members of the Watso family, Indians also prominent in Lake George, will be joined by Abenaki friends and relatives Saturday for an event at the Adirondack Museum at Blue Mountain Lake. The Watso ancestors include Sabael Benedict, an Abenaki man familiar to early settlers and explorers of the region, and Louis Watso, the patriarch of Lake George’s historical Abenaki community. and hair that has a tendency to curl up at the ends as it falls in black and gray shocks over his shoulders,” the Times said. He had little to say to the writer apart from comments on the weather or the wares which he peddled. Angeline Sarah Johnson sat in the corner of the shop making baskets. She wore a “faded black hat” and “a pair of heavyrimmed glasses.” She carried on conversations in broken English while weaving baskets, sometimes complaining that answering questions interfered with her work, the Times said. As the author spoke primarily with Angeline Johnson, her story dominates the account in the Times. She gave her age as approximately 60 years and noted that she had no record of the year of her birth. According to the registers of Saint-Pierre-de-Sorel, a parish in central Quebec, she was born September 25, 1847. Angeline told a story of coming to Lake George with her parents, Louis-Lazare Otôdoson–Gansha Tutteson and Marguerite Shaouigonet) to make their living there and at Saratoga. According to Times citing Angeline Johnson, “After six years of success and happiness the elder Tutteson learned that he and

his family had been exiled from the tribe of Abenakis, for according to Canada’s Indian Act, any tribe member who is absent from his home more than five years is disowned and his property forfeited. The banishment from the tribe was at first keenly felt by the Tutteson family, but they decided to pass the remainder of their days at Lake George,” the Times said. Nevertheless, Angeline Johnson engaged lawyers to restore her family’s property and standing within the Abenaki community, and that of her husband, as well. The article indicated that he was “exiled from the tribe” subsequent to their marriage, but his particular situation likely owed more to a much longer history of off-reserve living as he was born and raised in New York, as well as to his white father. For decades, the Indian Act legislated that aboriginal women who married white men lost their legal status as Indians, and that their children would also be considered non-native in the eyes of the law. Continuing efforts by some members of the Johnson family to secure their rights have yet to bear fruit. One family member recently applied to Indian and Northern Affairs Canada for status but her application was unsuccessful given ongoing gender discrimination in the law and the lack of a birth certificate for Norman Johnson. More distant relatives in New York and Canada have been unable to secure their rights for similar reasons. Of particular consternation to many of them has been that despite the fact that they meet the exclusionary criteria of Canada’s Indian Act, and despite overwhelming documentary evidence, including INAC’s own records, they lack a birth or baptismal record which is the only type of documentation which Indian and Northern Affairs Canada accepts. And they lack recourse in the United States, for here they are considered by the government Canadian Indians no matter their families’ histories of continued residence in this country, histories which predate the country’s very existence. Christopher Roy is an anthropologist conducting research on various Abenaki-related topics throughout the Northeast. David Benedict is an Abenaki family historian and descendant of Sabael Benedict’s son Elijah. They are actively seeking more information about Adirondack Abenaki history – feel free to contact them at or Roy will be speaking more about "Abenaki History in the Adirondacks” at the Adirondack Museum’s upcoming Abenaki Day celebration on July 11, and at a lecture entitled "Searching for Sabattis, and Other Tales of Adirondack Abenaki Adventure” 7:30 p.m. July 20 at the Adirondack Museum.

‘Floating Classroom’ buoyed by grants LAKE GEORGE — The Lake George Association’s educational Floating Classroom program has recently been awarded two grants totalling $16,000. The Claneil Foundation awarded the LGA a grant of $14,000, which will help cover some of the cost the LGA assumed in purchasing their new Floating Classroom boat, a 40’ catamaran named the “Rosalia Anna Ashby.” This new vessel is the key piece in getting the LGA’s high-profile program back out on the waters of Lake George, LGA Executive Director Walt Lender said this week. International Paper Foundation in Ticonderoga awarded the LGA a grant of $2,760 for the purchase of new water samplers. The LGA was able to acquire enough of these educational tools to cover a full-sized class trip. These grants were augmented by several private donations, Lender said. “We are truly grateful for these grant awards,” Lender said. “The donors’ generosi-

ty is a real testament to the value of the Floating Classroom in instilling a sense of stewardship in our next generation.” The award-winning Floating Classroom is central to the mission of the LGA, and a core element of its educational program. The program provides an enlightening experience to over 1,000 area school children annually, teaching them about the Lake George ecosystem. Although targeted for middle school students in Grades 6-8, the program has expanded and adapted to take out high school and elementary classes. The field trips, both on land and water, provide students with an overview of lake geology and an understanding of how a watershed works and how land-based activities affect water quality. The LGA is a not-for-profit organization committed to improving the beauty and quality of the Lake George Basin.

One of the vessels used in the Lake George Association’s ‘Floating Classroom’ program takes students for an educational session out on the waters of Lake George.

•50 Years Ago – July, 1959•

County Municipal Center plans move ahead

Popular governor eyeing presidency The Rockefeller-for-President movement, although not yet of sufficient size to be called a boom, has picked up steam. Many Warrensburg voters believe that if he seeks the Republican nomination he can win it. He is very popular in this area because of his support of the Adirondack Northway. The New York governor has a habit of getting what he wants. (Note: Rockefeller failed to get the nomination in 1960 and failed again two more times after that. He finally served as Vice-President from 1974 to 1977 under President Gerald Ford.)

Fire destroys Northeastern Products mill The plant of the Northeastern Products Corp., at North Warrensburg, was destroyed by fire Saturday June 27, 1959. The fire, believed to have been started by spontaneous ignition in the onestory frame structure, spread rapidly despite the efforts of volunteer firemen from Warrensburg, Chestertown and Lake George. The firemen were able to save the Robert J. Sweet sawmill and lumber yard nearby. A truck was driven out of the burning building, but little other equipment was saved. The company manufactures sweeping compound and is owned by Roger Muller and Eugene Schiavi.

New business venture Speed Wash, America’s newest laundry sensation, opened its doors June 29, 1959 at 11 Richards Ave. in Warrensburg Owned by Ed and Ann Hunter, Speed Wash offers a battery of coin-operated automatic washers and giant capacity wrinkle free dryers, as well as coin changers, soap vendors, folding tables and chairs for customer convenience. It takes only a quarter to run the washing machine and a dime to use the dryer. (Note: This is now the Warrensburg Laundry, now owned by David and Chuck Mineo. The Hunters retired decades ago to Florida.)

A referendum to move the county seat from Lake George and Glens Falls to the county property on Route 9, four miles north of Glens Falls, will be on the ballot in the November election. If the voters give their approval, a new building will be erected to house the county jail. The county offices, at present, are scattered in buildings in Lake George county center (now the Old Courthouse) and in the Colvin building and South and Broad streets in Glens Falls. The county jail in Lake George is under threat of formal condemnation and because of this a proposal has been made by the Board of Supervisors to build a county municipal center on Route 9 for about $3.7 million.

Swashbuckling pirate in Lake George Commercial artist Jack Bender has for five years been creating in plastic heroic-sized figures for various Adirondack attractions. His latest creation is the 20-foot statue of a swashbuckling pirate, standing on a treasure chest, for Jolly Roger restaurant on Canada St., Lake George. Binder has created more than a dozen larger-than-life statues in the Adirondacks. It all started when Paul Lukaris wanted an eightfoot ape for the entrance of Animal Land. Than Jack made the 12foot Viking for Norge Village on Bolton Rd., followed by Gainsborough’s Blue Boy. He used sawdust, plaster of paris, wood pulp, plastic and some metal for his durable, weather-proof creations. Jack Binder became a refugee from New York City’s Madison Ave. when he brought his large family to an old farm in Stony Creek in 1943 and he has lived in this area ever since. “I may not make as good a living as I could on Madison Ave., but I have more fun,” says Jack. His friends call him “Jack the Giant Maker.” (Note: At one time, in the mid-50s, Jack rented from Merv Hadden the house on Elm St. now known as the Grant Eldridge house, the former caretaker’s cottage for the Isham estate, now called The Pillars.)

Charles B. Wheeler, son of Franklin Wheeler of Warrensburg, who graduated from the Warrensburg Central in1959 will attend the New York Institute of Photography starting Sept. 21, 1959. James J.

Double the Savings, Double the Fun I

've mentioned before that dollar sales paired with dollar coupons are one of my favorite ways to get free items at the grocery store. Another easy way is through double-coupon promotions. Double-coupon promotions are exciting! Many stores will match a coupon's face value and pass the savings on to you, the shopper. Some stores double coupons every day, while others run special double coupon promotions certain days of the week or times of the year. In some cases, stores may even offer triplecoupon days. Regardless of how your stores handle double coupons, they are a great way to save even more money and get items for free. Here's how coupon doubling works. If you have a 50-cent coupon, the cashier will scan it at the register and give you $1 off

your item. Coupon doubling becomes even more fun when the doubled value equals the value of the item you're buying. Let's say you are buying a 2-liter bottle of soda that was on sale for a dollar. With a 50-cent coupon doubled to $1, your bottle of soda is free! The store matches the coupon's value of 50 cents and you pay nothing. So what happens if your doubled coupon value exceeds the cost of the item? During a recent double-coupon sale at a major retailer I purchased a $3.50 bottle of shampoo. I had a $2 coupon; the store doubled the coupon's value to $4. Now, as I've mentioned in a previous column, many stores do allow what couponers call overage, when the value of a coupon exceeds the cost of an item. In the case of overage, the extra value is applied to the rest of your total. However, stores that double coupons typically do not give overage. In this instance, the $2 coupon would double to a $4 value, but since the item is $3.50, the store will "adjust down" the value to match the cost of the item, making it free. It's important to check your store's policy on doubling coupons, too. Policies on coupon doubling vary by store and retail chain. Some stores may double all coupons up to 50 cents or $1. Other stores may double coupons up to $2. Some stores will not double printable Internet coupons. Ask your store for a copy of its coupon policy, either at the store's service counter or online via the store's Web site. What if your store doesn't double coupons? Don't worry. You can still be a Super-Couponer even without double coupon pro-

motions. I have noticed that double coupons tend to be a regional phenomenon. In many markets, grocery stores may not offer double coupons at all. This is the case where I live, in the suburbs of Chicago, where major grocery stores simply don't offer double coupons. In By Jill Cataldo fact, to find grocery stores that offer double coupons I travel 40 minutes away from the city, so I rarely get to take part in these promotions. I shop every week at a store that does not offer coupon doubling, and I still do very well at cutting my grocery bill significantly. At least one major retailer has started offering double-coupon promotions nationwide during certain times of the year. They're definitely worth watching for! With the current state of the economy, I would guess we'll see other retailers taking part in similar promotions in the weeks and months ahead.

Police say teen torched neighbor’s home

Lake George man dead after motorcycle crash

BRANT LAKE — A teenager from New Jersey who police say started a fire on a neighbor ’s porch at a local campground while the home was occupied, has been arrested on a felony arson charge. Sunday the Warren County Sheriff's Office arrested Andrew K. Kildea, 17 of Saddle Brook, New Jersey on a felony charge of second-degree Arson. Andrew Kildea Over the Fourth of July weekend, Kildea was staying with his family at the Hidden Pond Campground in Brant Lake. Kildea was familiar with the area because he and his family have been vacationing in Brant Lake for more than 10 years, police said. During the early morning hours Sunday, Kildea unlawfully entered a neighbor ’s porch and started a fire, police said. As the fire grew, it traveled up the exterior wall of a camper and created flames and heavy smoke. The detectors inside the trailer sounded and as a result, the occupants were able to get out and extinguish the fire, police said. Kildea was familiar with the owners of the camper and knew family members were inside at the time he set the fire, police said. Kildea is a Junior Firefighter with the Saddle Brook Fire Department in Saddle Brook, New Jersey, authorities said. Kildea was arraigned in the Horicon Town Court. Bail was set at $10,000 cash bail. The teen was sent to Warren County Jail but he subsequently posted bail and was freed. Kildea is scheduled to return to Horicon Town Court later this month. The case was investigated by Investigator Edward Affinito and Officer Peter DiFiore of the Warren County Sheriff's Office.

Take a kid fishing, before it’s too late! Tips and techniques for young anglers

When it comes to fishing, quantity is more important to children than quality. When introcuding children to the sport, it's best to target 'easy to catch' species such as perch, sunfish or rock bass rather than the more selective species.


still remember the day I got my first fishing pole. It was a white Shakespeare WonderRod with a closed faced Zebco 202 reel. Unlike the bike I rode at the time, my first fishing rod was not a “hand me down” item. It was a birthday present and it was brand new. I spent as much time practice casting in the backyard as I did on the river. Currently, according to the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation, there are more than 50 million active anglers in the United States. The vast majority of active anglers claim they learned to fish because “someone” once took the time to introduce them to the sport. Typically, it was a father, uncle or grandfather that provided this introduction. However, in recent years there have been some dramatic shifts in American society. Today, nearly 50 percent of American

children are raised in a single parent family. In 2008, our society passed another threshold as more children were born to an unwed mother than to wedded couples. Nearly 67 percent of all anglers claim that “Dad” took them on their first fishing trip. If “Dad” has a diminishing role in introducing new anglers today, and others don’t step in to fill the void, how will the sport of angling be passed to future generations? The gift of fishing is still something special and those who don’t fish may never know what they have missed, unless those of us who fish take the opportunity to share it.

Fishing with children: Do it now Recreational boating and fishing rank high among America’s favorite sporting activities. More people fish than play golf and tennis combined. The surest way to ensure longevity of the sport is by increased public awareness. Children that become committed anglers quickly develop an awareness and appreciation of the need for protecting, conserving and restoring America’s aquatic natural resources. Today’s children will be the the next generation of American anglers, or not. With the vast angling resources available across the Adirondacks, parents and educators, it would be negligent to deny children the necessary knowledge and skills to effectively utilize such resources. As a parent, I’d prefer that my child was out wading on a local stream than hanging out on a street corner.

There are a few key points that parents should be aware of when venturing out with children on an angling adventure. You don’t need a boat full of fancy gear. Often, it’s much easier to fish from shore. Always be positive and enthusiastic; make fishing a fun and enjoyable activity. Let the kids gain competency by practice casting on the lawn at home. Provide a target such as an apple basket to improve accuracy. Watch the weather and insure that outings are short, exciting and productive. Pick a place that is easy to get to, comfortable, and safe. Bring along plenty of snacks, lunch, water, sunscreen, insect repellent, swimsuits, towels and first aid basics. Make the trip comfortable for everyone and above all have patience with snagged lines, lost tackle and missed fish. Praise them often, you will accomplish more with positive feedback than a reprimand. Target species most likely for success such as perch, sunnies or rock bass and use live bait such as worms, minnows or grasshoppers. They don’t have to catch the largest fish in the pond, but due to a shorter attention span, they must have activity. The key point is to fish where action is assured to avoid boredom. Keep it simple and use reliable equipment that is intended for novices. A short rod with a push button, spin casting reel is much easier to use than a long rod with an open face spinning reel. For smaller children, drill a hole in the handle of the rod and attach a lanyard. Tie the lanyard to the boat or a belt buckle in case they drop the rod. Often kids will release the whole rod when letting go of the ‘push button’ on the reel. This simple tip may save you from “fishing for a rod.” Crimp the barb on all hooks. This makes it much easier to release the fish, a kid or a parent. Protect the children and make certain

that they always wear sunglasses when anyone has a rod in hand. A barbless hook can easily be removed from a finger or a foot, but not from an eyeball. Spread anglers out. Make certain they are at least 10 feet apart and watch for others before casting. Use a bobber if possible, it will provide a visual clue to signal a bite. It also gives kids something to watch to stay attentive. Leave your rod at home since the trip is all about a kid’s fishing adventure. If possible, bring along someone their age to share the adventure with. Look for water bugs, turtles, frogs, beavers or loons. Let them play with minnows or worms. Let them experience nature. Most of all, fishing should be fun, not a chore. Take a camera along. After the trip, get prints in the kid’s hands as soon as possible, so they can share the adventure with others. Encourage them to write a short story to accompany the photos, it can provide helpful feedback for future trips. Show respect for the environment and the water. Teach water safety and in a boat, make certain everyone wears a PFD (lead by example). Make each outing an adventure. Involve children in the planning for the day, look over maps, draw up a list and let them assist in the decision making process. It should be their special time! A big part of the fun is in the preparation. Let them help with the tackle, digging worms or catching grasshoppers. Most of all, strive to depart before the fish do, always leave them wanting more.

The program, which begins at 7:30 p.m., includes varied and virtuosic repertoire, ranging from Baroque toccatas to contemporary tangos. A native of Poland, Lidia Kaminska has performed extensively in the U.S. and Europe. Philadelphia Magazine claims she “transforms the accordion into a massive force — more pipe organ than squeezebox — and burns through classical repertoire with virtuosic speed and technique, causing jaws to drop.” Kaminska’s program at the Sembrich includes a portion of “Four Seasons” by Vivaldi, sonatas by Scarlatti, and a Toccata and Fugue by J.S. Bach. An etude by Paganini, a prelude by Chopin, and a work by Khachaturian rounds out the program along with Spanish-flavored pieces by Zolotariev and Albeniz and a set of tangos by Piazzolla. “We’re always mindful of Marcella

Sembrich’s own roots in Eastern Europe, and we welcome the opportunity to feature Polish performers,” said Richard Wargo, Sembrich artistic director. “People have commented on Lidia’s fine musicianship and mastery of her instrument as well as her entertaining, engaging manner.” Lidia Kaminska began playing the accordion at the age of eight; by 11 she was competing in international competitions, and a year later gave solo performances in Holland, Austria and Germany. Kaminska has been presented in Carnegie’s Zankel Hall and at Lincoln Center. Seating at the Sembrich studio museum is limited. For reservations, call 644-2431. The ticket price of $20 includes a lakeside reception following the performance with opportunity to meet the artist. Her recent recording, on sale at the concert, is part of her personal mission to change the perception of the accordion from a folk medium suited to parlor entertainment to a classical instrument at home in the concert hall.

Acclaimed classical Accordionist Lidia Kaminska, to perform Saturday at the Sembrich Museum in Bolton Landing Saturday, is on a mission to change the impression of the accordion as an instrument primarily for parlor entertainment — to one that is suited for the concert Hall. Kaminska has performed at LIncoln Center as well as in the Carnegie complex.

‘Carmenella’ opera staged at Bolton school BOLTON LANDING — The Marcella Sembrich Studios is hosting a free children's opera, featuring music and humor to delight its audience, Sembrich representatives said this week. The organization is sponsoring a one-time performance of “Carmenella” by the Seagle Colony 10 a.m. Friday July 17 at Bolton Central School. Admission to the 30-minute opera is free, thanks to funding from the Stewart’s Shops and local occupancy tax funding. Combining the music of George Bizet’s “Carmen” with the story of “Cinderella,” audiences both young and old will delight in a tale that is both touching and amusing, Sembrich representatives said.. With a twist on the original, this story is set in Spain where Cinderella attends a bullfight instead of a ball and earns the ardor of a handsome prince toreador. Along the way, she overcomes personal hardship to rediscover the lasting values of optimism, good works and self-confidence. Founded in 1915 in Schroon Lake, the Seagle Music Colony is one of the oldest summer singer-training programs in the U.S. The Colony focuses on developing gifted singers while presenting quality opera and musical theatre performances to the public. Now in its 94th season, the balance of the Seagle Music Colony season includes performances of “Hotel Casablanca,” “Cinderella,” and “Candide.” After Friday’s Carmenella show, children will be encouraged to come forward and meet the performers, so they can ask questions, and get a closer look at costumes, make-up and scenery. In addition, cut-outs of well-known storybook characters such as Hansel and Gretel, Little Red Riding Hood and the Three Little Pigs will be on hand to allow parents and grandparents to photograph the children. Congratulations to Athol resident Joan Gordon who has made the Dean’s List at Adirondack Community College this last semester, and to the two graduates from the local community, Jonelle Bacon and Josh Keeler. Sympathy from the community is out to the family of Josephine Castro who passed away Tuesday June 23. Father ’s Day weekend was a delightful time at Billy Neville’s Mud Street home. His two sons, Shawn and Jason and his 10-year-old granddaughter Amber all came up for a visit from New Jersey. They enjoyed a day at Lake George going out on a boat and doing some fishing -guess who caught the biggest fish? Good catch, Amber! Zina McDonald is home from Florida at her home on Glen Athol Road. Welcome back, Zina! Did you see the cute little beetle going through the neighborhood on four wheels? There’s a frog trying to push it too. Jim and Norma Galusha of Charlie Olds Road express their thanks to everyone for the many acts of kindness shown during Jim’s hospital stay. Thanks for all the cards, the prayers and the phone messages. Jim has been home and is on the mend this last week in June. We all wish you a speedy recovery. Playful 8-week-old kitten “Stripes” is ready to go to a good home. To see if the cat is still available, call 623-2580.

St. James Episcopal Church — a landmark since the Civil War era Historical Museum. According to the church archives, Episcopalians attending that first meeting assumed that the parish would be named St. Luke’s — because Tuttle was a well-known New York City priest and rector of St. Luke’s parish — but Tuttle had just minutes earlier experienced an inspiration leading to another name, the story goes. On his way to that first service, rowing from Rockledge to the courthouse, he had been struck by the beauty of the scenery, and had recalled a passage from the Epistle of James: “Every good and perfect gift comes down from above, from the Father of Lights.” The legend goes that he asked for the congregation to be named after the passage’s author, St. James. This first meeting of the organized congregation was reenacted in 2005, in a 150th anniversary celebration, during which Charles Tuttle III portrayed his great-grandfather Isaac’s arrival at the courthouse by rowboat. According to church archives, a variety of furnishings in the church reflect the rich history of the building. The altar was built at the old county work farm, which is now the Great Meadow State Prison in Comstock. The organ was manufactured by Ernest M. Skinner & Co., the masterful firm that built the finest instruments of its day, including the organ at St. John the Divine Cathedral in Manhattan. St. James’ Skinner organ is one of the four smallest Skinner organs ever built, according to church records. The cross over the altar was designed and carved by Bob Voyeau, and was given in member of the grandson of the Rev. Isaac Tuttle, Charles Tuttle II.

LAKE GEORGE — For 142 years, the stone sanctuary of St. James Episcopal has stood in Lake George, offering a place for people to enjoy a spiritual retreat from the resort village’s hustle and bustle. This building has been a landmark in Lake George since the civil war era. Back in 1866 when the nation had just emerged from devastating political upheaval, the original 1855 wooden St. James Episcopal Church was “blown down by a mighty wind,” according to reports of the day. When workmen of the time determined that the high, heavy steeple directly atop the roof might have led to the church’s collapse, church officials decided to build the church of stone and set the tower on the ground beside the church for solid support — in the manner of the English countryside churches. Behind the church is Tuttle Hall, built in 1910 with complimentary English architecture. Over the ensuing years, Tuttle Hall has been well-used by the community for school classrooms, voting, high school dances, and at one time housed the only basketball court in the village. More recently, it has served as a youth center and as an American Youth Hostel, in addition to hosting parish activities. The St. James congregation has its roots in the first continuous Episcopal worship services, a gathering of Lake George family and friends at the home of the church’s founding pastor, Rev. Isaac Tuttle. Gathering on the porch of his home Rockledge, beginning in 1852, their meditations and worship meetings became popular enough that they were moved tin August 1855 to the Old County Courthouse — now the Lake George

Descendants of Abenakis, prominent locally, to be at Adirondack Museum event

Thurman-area vintage quilts sought

LAKE GEORGE — Members of the Watso family — who have deep roots in Lake George — will be joined by Abenaki friends and relatives for an event Saturday July 11 at the Adirondack Museum at Blue Mountain Lake. This “Abenaki Day' event will be held during regular museum hours, from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Like many Abenaki families, the Watso family has deep roots in the Adirondacks. Their ancestors include Sabael Benedict, an Abenaki man familiar to early settlers and explorers of the region, and Louis Watso, the patriarch of Lake George’s historical Abenaki community. Descendants of these two men lived and continue to live throughout the region, some as full-time residents and others moving back and forth between Lake George, Saratoga Springs, Albany, and the Odanak reserve in Quebec. Abenaki Day will feature a number of demonstrations of traditional Abenaki arts from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., including sweet grass and black ash basket-making by Barbara Ann Watso, bead work with Priscilla Watso, pounded black ash splint making with John Watso and Martin Gill, and traditional wood carving by Denise Watso. Réjean Obomsawin will share traditional Abenaki legends that have been passed down by the elders at 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., and Jacques T. Watso will offer traditional Abenaki singing and drumming at 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Joining the Abenaki presenters will be anthropologist Christopher Roy, who will discuss Abenaki History in the Adirondacks at 12:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. Additionally, several local Abenaki artisans will display their work throughout the day.

Open house, dedication at Starbuckville Dam SCHROON LAKE — The Schroon Lake Park Commissioners will be holding a public open house at the Starbuckville Dam on Sat. July 11 at 10 a,m.. The dam is located off Valentine Rd. south of E. Schroon River Rd. The event includes a dedication of Koch Park, a municipal park next to the dam.

Fix up From page 1 the Sebald house. “Most people might think this work is a hassle, but many people working together make work light,” he said. “And the conversations with friends while we work make it really enjoyable.” The teens participating in these week-long sessions of Christian mission outreach are volunteering their time sprucing up homes, churches and public facilities in the region, as well as reserving several hours per day for recreational pursuits. Also, the group is now conducting a day camp Aug. 5 for children ages 4 to 11, to be held from noon to 3 p.m. weekdays at the Bakers Mills Wesleyan Church off state Rte. 8. Children from all over northern Warren County are welcome to attend. Abby Mueller of Orange County Ca. said she was really enjoying her work helping lead the day camp, which includes reading, singing, crafts, and storytelling. This is her second mission trip, but her first in the Adirondacks, she said. “These kids really appreciate our attention,” she said. “It feels really good to make them so happy.” The YouthWorks group is being housed in the parish house at Holy Cross Episcopal Church in Warrensburg, spending their days at their worksites. So far, the teen volunteers have worked at a variety of locations, cleaning up and installing barbecue grills at the North Creek Ski Bowl, and working at Whitewater Manor assisted living home in North Creek, mowing the lawn, and accomplishing other yard work, while entertaining residents, according to YouthWorks crew leader Mark Strickland. Later this week, the youth will be visiting seniors at the TriCounty Nursing Home in North Creek, he said. At Camp Triumph in northern Warren County, the teens have been renovating the site so it can be reopened, Strickland said. There, the volunteers are weeding, mowing, painting the house and barn, he said. The teen crews have also been at the Johnsburg town baseball fields off Peaceful Valley Road, cleaning up and painting — plus fixing up the dugouts as well as the concession stand, Strickland said. At the Baker ’s Mills Wes-

leyan Church, one crew accomplished considerable renovations, including extensive exterior painting and fixups. Later this month, crews will be helping prepare the Warren County fairgrounds off Schroon River Rd. for the upcoming county Youth Fair, he said. Major corporations as well as local enterprises have donated the materials and equipment for the renovation work, he said. YouthWorks is a nationwide Christian organization based in Minneapolis, and northern Warren County is one of 70 destinations across the nation for this outreach program. The YouthWorks teens have been working with locally based North Country Ministry on lining up projects to undertake. The teens painted the barn and spruced up their food pantry, Strickland said. “It’s been a great opportunity to come out and serve,” Strickland said.


Hickory From page 1 other facilities. The ski center, known with fondness as “Hickory Hill,” might offer mountain biking activities during the summer months, Geraghty said. “They have great plans, and this is not only important to visitors, but for local residents,” he said. William Van Pelt of Houston confirmed his Hickory Hill redevelopment plans Monday. Among the upgrades, he said, was a digital system that would automatically detect the paid passes skiiers bought in advance over the Internet, thus allowing them to get out of their car and get on the lift without waiting in line at a ticket window. The computerized system would also greet people by name as they board lifts, voicing the accumulated distance of their day’s downhill adventures. The lodge would also be extensively renovated with an eye on customer comfort and convenience, he said. Wi-Fi Internet will be among the new offerings. Three employees are now at the center working full time on renovations, he said. Van Pelt said he grew up in Saratoga Springs, and his friends, who are expert skiiers and enjoy ski vacations in Utah, talk with fondness about Hickory and the challenging experience it offers. The Website also has a fondness for Hickory Hill, calling it a gem of an attraction for skiing purists, although it has been closed to the public for several years. Skiernet has rated it among New York State’s “Top Ten” ski centers. Hickory Hill’s summit is 1,900 feet, and its longest run is 10,560 feet. Skiernet notes that at Hickory Hill, there are virtually no crowds, it’s low cost, and there’s “no posturing.” “With a mix of narrow trails, open areas and glades, Hick-

ory is skiing in the 1950s,” the Website says. Skiernet advises skiers, if there’s a good snowfall, to bypass the popular Whiteface or Gore resorts and head for Hickory Hill. “This is a ski area every purist should visit as often as possible,” the Website says. “Trail approaches to vistas of Schroon River and the distant Hoffman and Pharaoh wilderness areas make for some truly spectacular skiing.” And spectacular skiing is what prompted Van Pelt to work with the Hickory board of directors to redevelop the ski center, which is likely to have many of the upgrades ready by this coming winter, he said. Skiiers are welcome to submit their suggestions for the center ’s redevelopment, plus comments and memories to Van Pelt via email at, he said. “Generations and generations of skiiers have enjoyed Hickory’s challenging slopes and its atmosphere,” he said. “Hickory has a strong family connection, and if we can rebuild that, it will continue to be a unique attraction.”

Tax From page 1 even allowing for that change in rates, the mortgage tax revenues are increasing at an accelerating rate, and June’s receipts are showing they are continuing upward. The mortgage tax is paid to the county clerk when a property owner records a mortgage at the time of a property sale or re-financing. County Budget Officer Kevin Geraghty said he was pleased by the increase, and was hoping it would continue so it might make a dent in the county’s projected $2.3 million shortfall for 2010. “We’ll be more than pleased if we hit our revenue targets,” he said. “This is really positive news.”
