Court likely to be held at historic LG courthouse

JAMBOREE TIME

This Week ELIZABETHTOWN

IN WARRENSBURG

By Thom Randall thom@denpubs.com LAKE GEORGE — After a half-century layoff from official duty, the old Warren County Courthouse is likely to again hold county court sessions, Lake George Town Supervisor Dennis Dickinson revealed Monday July 23 at a rare joint meeting of the town and village boards. Such court proceedings may begin on a regular basis as soon as September, Dickinson said, noting that state officials have toured and inspected the building with an intent of resuming its historic use for Warren County court and state Supreme Court sessions as needed. Dickinson said that the town is now poised to refurbish the Victorian-style building. Such upgrades include increasing energy efficiency, boosting security and adding furnishings to meet state requirements. The looming brick building, now in use as a museum by the Lake George Historical Association, is situated at Canada and Amherst streets in Lake George. Dickinson said that state

Jamboree celebrates 50th anniversary By Thom Randall thom@denpubs.com WARRENSBURG — For two generations, the Smoke Eaters’ Jamboree is annually anticipated with enthusiasm by both children and adults in the North Country.

The Jamboree, a combination of a carnival and old-time country fair, is celebrating its 50th anniversary this weekend. The primary fundraiser for the Warrensburg Volunteer Fire Co., the fest features carnival rides, a midway, an auction, top-name entertainment, a barbecue, fireworks and games of chance.

The event will be held this year Friday July 27 and Saturday July 28 at the Warrensburg Recreation Field on Library Ave. The renowned rock ‘n roll band “The AudioStars” are booked again this year for Saturday beginning at 7 p.m., and they’re expected to draw a substantial crowd.

QUEENSBURY — Concerned that Warren County taxpayers may be supporting some local residents’ addictions, county supervisors voted Friday July 20 to ask the state Legislature to enact a law requiring drug

and alcohol testing for welfare recipients. The local resolution prompted debate at Friday’s county Board of Supervisors meeting, and four county supervisors – Dennis Dickinson of Lake George, Ron Vanselow of Johnsburg, Peter McDevitt of Glens Falls and Bill Mason of Queensbury, voted against it.

According to the county leaders’ request, all the state’s citizens relying on public assistance would be subject to random drug testing, and those testing positive would be denied benefits. Ralph Bentley of Horicon contended that taxpayer money paid to some welfare recipients freed up their personal funds to be spent on

drugs -- so in effect the county was supporting drug habits. Mandatory testing, he said, would be effective in preventing such expenditures. “All our highway employees have to go for random drug and alcohol testing, and if the test is positive, they’re fired and lose their license,” Bentley said. “Why shouldn’t free CONTINUED ON PAGE 16

Grocery name game: Grand Union stores to be named Tops, again By Katherine Clark

footprint,” said Frank Curci, Tops Markets president and CEO. “We are looking forward to having these stores and the surrounding communities become part of the Tops family.” Grand Union Markets LLC is an affiliate of C&S Wholesale Grocers, Inc., based in Keene, N.H. “We believe this transition makes excellent strategic sense for both organizations,” said Michael Newbold, EVP and Chief Administrative Officer for C&S Wholesale Grocers. “It allows Tops to strengthen its retail

network, while C&S will continue to focus on its core business of providing innovative supply and logistics solutions to its wholesale customers.  C&S very much appreciates its deep partnership with Tops and looks forward to the second decade of our relationship.”

Name game In 2001, the original Grand Union supermarket company sold 20 of its North Country stores to Tops during Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The 20 stores involved in the 2001 sale were: North Creek, Indian Lake, Ticonderoga, Port Henry, Willsboro, Tupper Lake, Lake Placid, Keeseville, two in Saranac Lake, Whitehall, Champlain, Elizabethtown, Au Sable Forks, Chestertown, Bolton Landing,

What's so special about the Adirondack Park? FUN FACT #4

Want to find water in the Adirondack Park? Walk downhill. The Adirondack Park contains so many lakes and ponds state officials only recently managed to identify and map all of them. The job required satellite technology and global position devices. In all, there are more than 11,000 lakes and ponds, ranging in size from less than one acre to the 132-mile-long Lake Champlain. While Champlain lies at 300 feet above sea level, there is a pond near the top of the mile-high Mount Marcy, called Lake Tear of the Clouds. The park’s lakes and ponds are the source for more than 2,000 miles of navigable rivers, fed by more than 30,000 miles of brooks and streams. Mt Jo and Heart Lake

ELIZABETHTOWN — The familiar chain of Grand Union supermarkets throughout the North Country that became Tops supermarkets in 2001 — only to revert back to Grand Union several years later — will once again be known as Tops. Tops Friendly Markets announced Thursday, July 19, it had entered into an agreement with Grand Union Markets LLC, to acquire 21 facilities located in upstate New York and Vermont, according to a release by the company. The Grand Unions purchased by Tops include stores in the following Adirondack locations: Elizabethtown, Au Sable Forks, two locations in Saranac Lake (Lake Flower Avenue and Church Street), Bolton Landing, Chestertown, Schroon Lake, Corinth, Warrensburg, North Creek, Northville and Peru. Tops has also purchased several Vermont locations including Hardwick, Northfield and Rutland. Tops officials said the local stores will still be called Grand Union until the transfer is complete, which is expected to happen this fall. The acquisition will bring the number of Tops stores to 153 and will expand Tops’ footprint further into areas of northern and eastern New York state and neighboring northern Vermont. “We are very excited about this growth opportunity for Tops, especially since these stores are a natural extension of our current

Schroon Lake, Warrensburg, Peru and Hamilton. Only 10 of these stores are part of the 2012 sale. While the announcement was made in February 2001, they made the transition to Tops on March 6, 2001. In 2005, Tops sold the following 12 stores to C&S Wholesale Grocers, which called them Grand Union Friendly Markets: Elizabethtown, Au Sable Forks, two in Saranac Lake, Bolton Landing, Chestertown, Schroon Lake, Warrensburg, North Creek, Peru, Corinth and Hamilton. Only 11 of these stores are part of the 2012 sale; faced with stiff competition from Price Chopper, the Hamilton Grand Union closed in 2009. Some stores, like the one in Tupper Lake, were sold (to Price Chopper), and others were simply closed, such as the one in Lake Placid. Tops announced in July 2005 that it was seeking buyers for 31 stores in New York, including the 20 North Country stores it bought from Grand Union in 2001. The sale was made in October 2005, and they made the transition to the 12 Grand Union stores on Feb. 13, 2006. During its latest transition, Tops plans to offer employment to the approximately 600 employees at all 21 stores without any interruption in service upon closing of the sale. The purchase is subject to customary closing conditions. Specific terms of the agreement were not disclosed. Tops Markets, LLC, is headquartered in Williamsville and operates 132 full-service supermarkets — 127 company-owned and five franchise locations. With more than 14,000 associates, Tops is a leading full-service grocery retailer in upstate New York and northern Pennsylvania.

Proposed airport land purchase irks Warren County politician By Thom Randall

thom@denpubs.com QUEENSBURY — Warren County leaders voted July 20 to apply for a $700,000 grant to buy land and easements east of the county airport’s secondary runway to meet Federal Aviation Administration mandates, but one local politician questioned the expenditure of taxpayer money. Queensbury supervisor-at-large Mark Westcott contended that such a sum shouldn’t be spent on accommodating a backup runway. “I’m supportive of keeping county airport in business, but I have serious reservations about the money,” he said. “The airport has operated successfully for decades without the purchase of land.” But county Public Works Superintendent Jeff Tennyson countered that for years, the county had been on notice from the FAA that it needed to eliminate hazards — mainly trees — near the runway. Tennyson said that if the county did not make progress in meeting the FAA mandates, the agency

could force the county to shorten the runway. The measure passed with all supervisors but Westcott voting for it. In other business, the county leaders: • Approved drafting a contract with Edward Zibro to lease the Warren County Fairgrounds in 2013 for the Warrensburg Bike Rally, with an option to return for five years — subject to annual endorsement by the county and town of Warrensburg. The rally is held before and during the annual Americade rally, generally the first week in June. Queensbury at-large supervisor David Strainer called for the contract to include specific dates for the rally rather than vague terms, so the agreement wouldn’t deter others from reserving the facilities. "The fairgrounds are a great asset, and they are totally underutilized,” he said. • Authorized an agreement with Washington County to provide backup emergency dispatch services in case of an outage. The Warren County supervisors decided to pursue the agreement after Verizon recently demanded $249,000 from the county for software

and hardware upgrades for their inhouse backup 911 system that Verizon engineered but said they’d no longer support without the upgrades. • Approved requesting an opinion from the state Attorney General on the status of lands in Chester and Horicon involved in the relocation of the Middleton Bridge. The state Department of Environmental Conservation has reportedly asked for a significant offset in state Forest Preserve land due to the pending bridge relocation. • Approved modification to an agreement with Lake George Village over sharing the revenue earned from the county-owned Beach Road parking lot – which until recently the village reaped all revenue and village leaders assumed they owned it. The revised agreement calls for the village to operate and collect the parking meter receipts from the lot and pay to the county 25 percent of the proceeds – after paying credit card fees. Beginning in 2013, the village additionally is to share 25 percent of the revenue from gleaned through special events, either in lease payments or other receipts.

Adirondack Journal Editorial

The difficulty in repealing ObamaCare

T

he process to repeal ObamaCare has been underway since the day it was signed in to law. So far, the results indicate that much must change before there is any actual repealing of ObamaCare. The reality of the situation is that the only hope of repealing ObamaCare is in the hands of the worst possible group: establishment D.C. politicians. Tomorrow, the House will vote again on repealing ObamaCare—which they have done successfully in this same session of Congress on January 19, 2011. There is no reason to think that the House GOP is doing anything more that putting on more theater of “attempting” to repeal ObamaCare. The fact is there are many more things that House Republicans could be doing to actually repeal or dilute the bill that they seem to have little stomach for actually doing. First, they could be voting to completely defund any action that is involved with implementing ObamaCare. Rep. Jim Jordan and Rep. Michele Bachmann are circulating a letter to their fellow members of Congress calling on them to vote to defund all actions implementing ObamaCare. As the letter states, “Since much of the implementation of ObamaCare is a function of the discretionary appropriations process, and since most of the citizens we represent believe that ObamaCare should never go into effect, we urge you not to bring to the House floor in the 112th Congress any legislation that provides or allows funds to implement ObamaCare through the Internal Revenue Service, the Department of Health and Human Services, or any other federal entity. We also urge you to take legislative steps necessary to immediately rescind all ObamaCare-implementation funds.” Second, they could be using the reconciliation process in the Senate to repeal ObamaCare. As former Bush administration official James Capretta wrote in 2011, “a reconciliation bill cannot be filibustered — and therefore can pass in the Senate with a simple majority, normally 51 votes, when all time for debate has expired.” Capretta goes further and lays out a realistic scenario:

“If, in the 2012 election, Republicans are able to maintain control of the House, pick up the majority in the Senate (a real possibility) but not a 60-vote supermajority, and win the White House (looking more possible by the day), the GOP would be in position to set in motion a reconciliation bill to repeal and replace Obamacare — and they wouldn’t need any Democratic cooperation to make it happen. The fact that leading Republican presidential candidates have now said that reconciliation is an option is a big deal, as it makes it very clear to all concerned that there is a clear path to victory for Obamacare opponents.” But the real problem in all of this is that we have to rely on politicians to handle the repeal of ObamaCare. The incentive structure for politicians is based upon receiving political donations and votes in the ballot box. Politicians make most (and I believe all) decisions based on those incentives. Therefore, if you want politicians to behave in such a way, such as to repeal ObamaCare, then you must provide them with the incentives to behave in certain ways. Unfortunately though, House Republican leadership publicly announced in the run-up to the 2010 midterm elections that they would “repeal and replace” ObamaCare if given the opportunity. The “replace” portion is where the real danger lies. The House GOP governing document the Pledge to America as well as many other Republicans in Congress who have publicly supported the politically popular provisions of ObamaCare such as allowing “kids” to stay on their parents’ insurance until they are 26 years old as well as guaranteeing insurance for those with pre-existing conditions, indicate that the Congressional GOP is in no hurry to completely dismantle ObamaCare. The latest effort by House Republicans to conduct another orchestrated “repeal” vote of ObamaCare does not indicate that Republicans really want to repeal it. If they are really serious this time, they need to prove it by actually defunding its implementation and forcing Obama and the Senate to explain to their constituents why they want to fund the law at all.

•100 Years Ago – July 1912•

Chester to build schoolhouse Town citizens have voted to build a new $7,000 schoolhouse in Chestertown. The vote was 38 to 12 at a special meeting held July 12, 1912 to purchase the old Baptist Church property for $1,000, sell the old school which adjoins the property and build a new school on the church lot. Some time ago the Baptist Church property, which had not been in use for some time, was sold to the late Charles H. Faxon and Milo Knapp by the Baptist Church Association and is now held by their heirs. The church is in poor condition, as is the school and cannot be expected to bring a very large sum. Both buildings will be sold to the highest bidder and must be removed at once by and at the expense of the purchaser. Work on the new school building will begin as soon as possible in order to have it in readiness for the opening of the fall term. The trustees, Dr. Erwin L. Stafford, W.A. Fosmer and Cyrus W. Kettenbach has given permission to borrow upon the credit of the district the sum of $8,000 from the Emerson Bank in Warrensburgh and to issue district bonds on Aug. 1, 1912 for that amount, 16 for $500 each.

Father suggests suicide Nathan Swartz, the slayer of Julia Conners, killed himself as his father, to whom he confessed, advised him to do. His father told him, “The only thing left for you is suicide. Here is some money, $1.25 for you to buy a pistol and shoot yourself or jump into the river.” Nathan ended his life with gas in a tenement house in New York City. At the time of his death he was on probation from prison where he had served a sentence for a crime against yet another girl. Nathan’s murderous attack on the Conners child, which he stabbed 41 times, stirred the whole nation. He left an open letter un-

addressed and unsigned. In part it said, “I am guilty and I am insane. It was caused by the beautiful makeup of women.”

Auto party escapes death A serious automobile accident occurred the morning of July 25, 1912 three miles north of Luzerne on the Lake George Road, at a point where the Porteous bridge spans a creek, when a party of five, A. Boquecash, owner of the car and Mrs. Boquecash, together with their daughter and Mr. and Mrs. St.Onge of Pittsfield, Mass., were thrown out of their machine. The driver lost control of the auto as it neared the bridge. The car ran up one of the protecting arms of the structure and turned completely over into the bridge. Had it gone into the creek the entire party would have been killed. All of the occupants were more or less injured and suffered greatly from the shock. One man was seriously injured and all were taken to the home of George Dunkley near the scene of the accident. A telephone call was sent to Luzerne for Dr. George Thompson and the badly damaged car was towed to Luzerne for repairs.

Mother bear suffers beating While on their way home recently from fighting a forest fire near the Upper Iron Works in Newcomb, Joseph Lamb, Fred Gregory and several others caught two baby bear cubs. The mother did not fancy the idea of having her young kidnapped and she put up a stiff fight, but was finally beaten off with clubs.

Adirondack weather One month it rains too much, another month it rains too little. One month it is too sunny, another month it is too cloudy. The winter is cold, the spring is raw, the summer is hot and the fall is wet. It is an abominable climate and not what it used to be. (Note: These are “the good old days” before global warming.)

Mountain music set for concert The Adirondack Mountain Bluegrass Band will be performing in an outdoor concert at 7 p.m. Monday July 30 in the park behind the Thurman Town Hall in Athol. The band members — Larry Blackhurst, Walt Kirby, Gary Sprung, Karen Sprung and Stephanie Svrcheck — blend guitar, banjo, bass, fiddle, mandolin and voices to perform traditional bluegrass and country tunes. Some members of the band formerly performed as “Don’t Quit Your Day Job,”and are known for their skillful instrumentation and close harmonies. Refreshments will available, and a playground is on site. Children must be accompanied by an adult while at the concert. Those attending are advised to bring a chair and wear layered clothing.

Over the fence I received a call from one of my readers this past weekend that touched me personally. Lance Chadwell expresses his thanks to area residents for their compassion and understanding while he cares for his elderly mother who is experiencing early-onset Alzheimer ’s. He also extends his apologies for the increased traffic on Combs Road due to his son’s graduation and his mother dropping in at all hours. My mother in-law has Alzheimer ’s as well, and I can understand the challenges one faces in not only caring for your own children, but for a parent as well. In our family my sister in-law and brother in-law care for Mom while raising their three children and working full-time jobs. I commend Lance and Doreen, Melissa and Jacques, and others who are coping with this situation. There are many ways you can get to know the town you live in. Thurman has a Town Historian — Joan Harris — and she enjoys helping residents and visitors learn from the past so they can enjoy the future that much more. Readers can email her at: thurmanhistorian@hotmail.com. Also, all are welcome to join the John Thurman Historical Society.

Events and activities in the hills The Thurman Quilting Group will be holding their meeting 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday July 30 in the town hall. All are welcome to bring their craft projects and pay a visit to their friends and neighbors. For details, contact Myra at 623-2633. The John Thurman Historical Society is to present a free program “Discovering Echoes of the Past” at 7 p.m. Tuesday Aug. 7 in the Thurman Town Hall. Caroline Andrulis, author of a book with a similar title, will talk about her experiences researching three centuries of Adirondack history. Refreshments will be available. For details, call 623-2007. Thurman Emergency Medical Services meets on the first Wednesday of every month at 6:30 p.m. at the squad building, 572 High St., and their next meeting is Aug. 1. If you

Roads, old and new Contractor Joseph H. Walker is making good progress on his state road contract between Warrensburgh and Chestertown, He now has a gang of men near Darrowsville. The first three miles are all finished so that autos can go very well now on the main line going over Spruce Mountain and making the distance about three miles less than by Friends Lake. In other road news, R.J. Brown, of Bolton, has been appointed by the State Civil Service Commission as temporary assistant in the history division, Department of Education. He will be assigned to the collection of data in reference to the original trails and military roads used during the French and Indian War, covering the territory between Albany and Crown Point.

Wild West show in town A feature with the Prairie Lillie and Nebraska Bill’s Wild West Show, billed to appear in Warrensburgh Aug. 1, 1912 and in North Creek the following day, is the trueto-life portrayal of the famous Mountain Massacre which calls forth the entire company of over 250 people and 300 horses. It is a spectacle well worth seeing. (Note: The Mountain Meadows Massacre is a little known and sad part of Mormon history. In 1857 Mormon pioneers from Cedar City, Utah disguised themselves as Indians and attacked the Fancher wagon train of emigrants which was heading along the Spanish Trail for California. Between 100 and 140 men, woman and children died. It was a black day in Mormon history. There has been a great deal of controversy over the matter and few facts are known about the reasoning behind the attack.)

Saintly lady dies Mrs. Thomas Needham, 77, a long-time resident of Warrensburgh, died July 19, 1912 of paralysis at South Johnsburgh. She is sur-

are interested in becoming a member, stop in and ask how you can help. The Thurman Connections Snowmobile Club holds their meetings generally on the last Friday of the month at their headquarters on Bear Pond Road, so the next meeting is July 27 at 7 p.m. For details — and to make sure of the meeting date and time, contact Doug Needham at 623-9234.

Over the fence The Gleaning Food Program is held on the first Monday of the month, and the next session is Aug. 6 at 1 p.m. Remember to bring your reusable cloth bags or plastic shopping bags to bring your goods home. Those who have extra time and would like to volunteer for an hour or more, contact the Town Hall at 623-9649. Two weeks ago, the Thurman Town Board approved a resolution to sign a contract with Warren County to buy vehicle fuel from them, and we hear this could mean a great savings to Thurman taxpayers. The board also approved a petty cash fund of $25 so the clerks at the town transfer station can make change when residents purchase garbage bags. This will make it easier for folks to obtain those bags on weekends when the Town Hall is closed. The petty cash fund will be accounted for every Tuesday, excluding holidays. The hot August weather is fast approaching, so please take the time to stop in and check on elderly neighbors. While you are there make sure they are well hydrating by getting them a glass of water.

Train buffs meet with rail manager The Thurman Station Association held an open meeting July 11 to explore the many opportunities the Railroad can bring to Thurman and surrounding communities. Many area residents attended, and Saratoga & North Creek Railroad Manager Steve Torrico was present. Torrico mentioned that Thurman Station is the only station on the line to have a “meet” where the train that gets to the meeting point first will divert itself to the siding, to facilitate the trains continuing northbound or southbound on the tracks. This occurs daily between 1:47 p.m. and 1:49 p.m. The passenger train ran through Thurman for the first time in 50 years on July 8, 2006. This was the VIP Train that ran from Thurman to North Creek, and it carried state legislators including Betty Little and Teresa Sayward. Originally, train service was supposed to be serving Thurman Station as far back as 1999, and support then for the train from local residents and surrounding communities was enormous. As the years passed with unanticipated delays, the momentum was stalled and many members of the Thurman Station Association parted. Members that stayed with the Association are Perky Granger, President; Cheryl Kenyon, Vice President; Sally Feihel, Secretary/Treasurer; plus members Sue Jennings, Winnie Martin, Dave Kenyon and Avis Russell. Since 18 months ago, train traffic has risen substantially after the county railroad operation was taken over by Iowa Pacific, the parent company of the Saratoga & North Creek Railway. Trains run daily to meet both the northbound and southbound Amtrak trains to and from New York City. Area business owners are undoubtedly pleased that negotiations are underway to possibly restore rail freight service, which has been dormant for decades. Plans are also underway to construct a four-sided build-

vived by four sons and three daughters, Clarence Needham, at whose home she died, LeRoy, William, Charles Needham and Nellie Corbett, Anna Mosher and Mrs. Wilbur Perkins. Elizabeth Harrison was born at Northrop, Linconshire County, England on Aug. 20, 1835 and was married to Thomas C. Needham Nov. 29, 1852 in the Church of England at Eckelsfield, Yorkshire County. She came to America with her husband the following year and on March 6, 1853 settled in Thurman. She became the mother of 11 children and she was a good wife and a loving mother, as well as a friend to everyone that came to her in sickness or trouble. Her ability as a nurse and midwife could not be excelled. She brought many little ones into the world and many eyes she closed in death. She will be missed.

News near and far The city treasurer of Newport, Oregon swallowed a whistle when a child and recently had it removed from his throat because sometimes it whistled of itself in his sleep and woke him up. Richard A. Hudnut and chauffeur of New York passed through Bakers Mills with his new automobile on his way to Fox Lair Camp. (Note…Richard Hudnut, owner of Fox Lair, was heir to the Hudnut cosmetic empire.) Rev. Richard Palmer and Mrs. Orletta Cilley, both of Warrensburgh, were married in Glens Falls the evening, of July 23, 1912 at the home of Frank Palmer on Ridge St. John Gamble died in Chestertown the morning of July 21, 1912 and his body was taken to New York by the Monday train. Chicken pox is the prevailing disease among children in Johnsburgh and some adults are catching it also. Harlon Mead’s house in Igerna burned to the ground July 20, 1912.

ing at Thurman’s current platform stop-off in Thurman. Work on the station will begin this fall with monies earmarked for building materials. One of the additions to the new station — besides being more aesthetically pleasing — will be a unisex restroom. The county-sponsored bus service to Glens Falls runs on the second and fourth Fridays of every month. It will run Friday Aug. 10 and is free to seniors age 60 and over. Those who wish to go, call Laura by Wednesday Aug 8 at 623-9281. The Thurman Fire Co. has asked that area residents be reminded that the county fire alert is now at the ‘High’ level. While there is no burn ban policy currently in effect, citizens are asked to use caution while enjoying campfires — and to have a garden hose handy. In case of an emergency, call 911.

On a personal note Sympathy goes out to the family of the late Brion Pasco, who passed away July 14 in Clarendon, Texas at the age of 58. Brion was the son of the late Hugh and Grace Pasco of Thurman. Celebrating a wedding anniversary on July 29 are Lanette and Jerry Baker. Celebrating birthdays this week are Bruce Beldon and Sierra Galusha on July 29; Cheryl Kenyon and Kendra Russell, July 30; Daniel Cameron and Scott Brown, July 31; Aaron Brown and Jordan Baker, Aug 1; Eddie Castro, Helise Hennessey and Barb Farrell, Aug 2; and John Smith III, Wendy Baird and Marilyn Williams on Aug 3.

Baker family reunion set MALTA – A two-year countdown is now underway for the sesquicentennial of the first Baker Family Reunion. Descendants of James and Ruth Post Baker will meet at Malta Town Park for the 148th Baker Family Reunion from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday Aug. 11, and planning will begin for the 150th reunion to be held in 2014. Baker cousins are asked to bring photos, videos, news of the family. The Baker Family Reunion is considered to be the oldest annual family reunion in the U.S. The first meeting was held on Feb. 10, 1865, when the 16 sons of James and Ruth Post Baker met at the Baker family homestead on Viall Avenue in Mechanicville. The sons continued the reunion each year, bringing their families and as the number of descendants grew, so did the reunions. All descendants of James and Ruth Post Baker, Baker relatives and friends of Bakers are warmly invited to join the reunion. Those who think they may be a “long lost Baker cousin" are urged to join the Baker reunion at the and the family historian Maria Carr will be on hand to help trace connections. Everyone attending is asked to bring a covered dish to share. Hot dogs, hamburgers and cold drinks will be provided. The meeting area is under a covered pavilion in Malta Town Park, adjacent to a children’s play area. For details, call Joe Cutshall-King at 692-9505; email bakerreunion@roadrunner.com; or visit the Baker Family Reunion page at: www.facebook.com/thebakerfamilyreunion).

New president for WCS school board By Lynn Smith

denpubs@denpubs.com WARRENSBURG — The two top policy-making positions in the Warrensburg Central School District feature new faces as a reconstituted school board voted recently to install officers. July 9, the Warrensburg school board held its organizational meeting for the 2012-2013 school year. Laura Danna took the helm the of President and Beth Callahan stepped into the role of Vice President. Douglas West and Paul Weick were sworn in as new board members by WCS District Clerk Cynthia Turcotte. They replaced long-term board members and fiscal conservatives Richelene Morey and Brian Lace. At the board meeting, Superintendent of Schools Tim Lawson reported that the district was facing a 12 percent increase for employees’ health insurance in the 2012-13 school year over the present year. The increase represents an additional cost of $249,000 increase for local taxpayers. Teachers are now contributing 10 percent of the cost of insurance premiums.

Laura Danna Also, the board agreed to transfer $100,000 to a capital reserve fund to pay for replacement of the high school’s leaky, deteriorating roof. A roof replacement project is expected to cost about $1 million, Lawson said. District Business Administrator Cynthia Turcotte said July 17 that the roof replacement fund has about $1.1 million in it already. Gail Lawson, wife of Tim Lawson, was appointed as Chief Information Officer. She is to be paid $3,396 for the 2012-2013 school year

for her duties, which include report data to the state. A la carte school lunches will increase by 10 cents to $1.60 for the upcoming school year. Tim Lawson reported that the school district faces a declining enrollment — he observed that 65 students graduated in 2012 and to date 50 are enrolled in the 2012-13 Kindergarten program. A total of 24 children are now enrolled in the preschool program and will divided into two sessions of 12 each. The retirement of Mike Curtis, Security Monitor and Greeter for the High School, was announced. The position was eliminated in the current rounds of budget cuts. He has served either as Security Monitor or Teacher ’s Assistant since 1998. Two other personnel changes were announced: the resignation of Junior Varsity Volleyball Coach Jessica Ryan, and the resignation of Mark Abbattisti as Golf Coach. Abbattisti is remaining in the district as a Special Education teacher — he resigned as coach due to increased academic duties, of

Big Apple circus presents awesome feats in artistic style By Will Randall

thom@denpubs.com LAKE GEORGE — As I walked into the giant circus tent in Charles Wood Park with my date, my expectations were high for the level of spectacle and entertainment because years ago, I was quite impressed when I saw the Big Apple Circus during one of its residencies in New York City. The Big Apple circus is offering several shows daily through Sunday July 29 Immediately, I noticed the fanciful huge Imagination Machine which would play a role in the show’s theme and clever story line. The artistry of the sets, props — even paintings on the walls — were remarkable and indicated the caliber of the show to come. Designer-directors Andre Barbe and Renaud Doucet created a set that merges science fiction with a colorful, child-friendly sense of wonder. This Imagination Machine connects to a helmet that channels dreams, and makes them come to life. Emerging from the device are an array of well-choreographed and marvelously costumed acts, including juggler Dmitry Chernov — considered one of the most accomplished jugglers in the world — in a spacey outfit tossing glow-in-the-dark balls. The machine also yielded the rope aerialist Anna Volodko who ascended, plunged and flipped with remarkable strength, skill, and grace — plus contortionist Melanie Chy who performed remarkable balancing feats. The Shandong Acrobatic Troupe performed truly amazing stunts, including a three-story, six- or seven-person human

pyramid jumping rope with perfect synchronicity — and they closed their performance by juggling each other. Also displaying truly incredible athleticism were the Flying Cortes trapeze artists, who accomplished gravity-defying feats with outstanding finesse and style. Incidentally, we hear their act includes the world’s youngest professional flying trapeze artist. The imagination machine provided a fun transition between the acts, which included the presentation of weird animals including a South American Capybara or an African porcupine; and the comedy and magic routines of Muriel Brugman and Scott Nelson, who mixed comic stunts with truly mesmerizing, seemingly impossible feats. Clowns, including Grandma, or Barry Lubin, involving the crowd in their routines, amplified the amusement. The seats were comfortable, the view of the action was unparalleled, and the tent was air conditioned, which provided a welcome respite from the heat and humidity outside the tent. The original music adding drama to the show was performed by a live band comprised of talented musicians. Overall, the show was exciting, recapturing the wonder that I had experienced when I saw the show in Manhattan as a child —not too many years ago. The circus is presenting shows at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. daily through Saturday, and at 11 a.m., 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. on Sunday, when the engagement in Lake George concludes. Tickets are available at the box office at Charles Wood Park, or by calling (800) 541-3750.

Johnsburg Library receives grant NORTH CREEK — The Town of Johnsburg Library received a "Books for Children" grant from the Libri Foundation for new childrens and young adult books. Books are on display and available for checkout. The Library has been very fortunate to receive this grant in the past and would like to thank the Friends of the Johnsburg Library for their share in matching this grant. The Friends raise funds through their annual book and bake sale which will be held July 27 from 7-9 p.m. and July 28 from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m.

Rope aerialist Anna Volodko ascended, plunged and flipped with outstanding suppleness, strength and grace as one of the many athletic and aesthetic acts presented during a performance of the Big Apple Circus last week. The circus is presenting shows at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. daily through Saturday, and at 11 a.m., 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are available at the box office at Charles Wood Park, or by calling (800) 541-3750. Photo by Bertrand Guay/Big Apple Circus

Controversy erupts over use of old Adirondack schoolhouse By Thom Randall thom@denpubs.com ADIRONDACK — The proprietors of a children’s summer day camp situated in a former local schoolhouse they are renting from the Horicon town government found themselves at odds recently with local volunteers who have been rehabilitating the structure as a community center. At the Horicon town board meeting held July 19, the day camp’s operators and the volunteers offered differing opinions about how the building should be used. The enterprise, known as Adirondack Arts & Science Day

Camp, offers educational enrichment opportunities for children from kindergarten age through grade seven. Al and Jess LaFountain operate the camp for five weeks during the summer. Last year, they operated their day camp in the pavilion behind the Horicon Town Hall in Brant Lake, which Al LaFountain said was problematical, because wind and rain would often blow through the structure and disrupt the children’s activities. The move to the old Adirondack hamlet schoolhouse, LaFountain said, improved student safety due to eliminating the need to cross Rte. 8 for trips to the beach, and the building in Adirondack now offered sanitary and convenient

The Warrensburg team of the Tri-County Middle League recently finished their 2012 season, achieving a 5-4 regular-season record as they headed into the playoffs July 23.

bathroom facilities. However, several volunteers who worked on rehabilitating the building said that the town’s rental of the schoolhouse to the couple for five prime summer weeks prevented use of the building for meetings of civic and social groups, as was originally intended. Michelle Montague, a parent of one of the students, said her child enjoyed the camp experiences immensely, and the enterprise should be allowed to fully use the facilities. “This camp is providing a safe, happy, enriching environment,” she said, noting that the children were learning civic responsibility and helping the town by cleaning up the local roadside. In an environmental project, the students had picking up and disposed of a considerable amount of trash. The children also helped remove invasive Japanese Knotweed from the park in the hamlet of Adirondack. Montague, as well as a town board member, said that the day camp offered the only local summer educational program in Horicon, and parents would otherwise have to send their children to Chestertown or beyond for the experiences the camp offered. “We want to keep our youth here,” she said. One of the volunteers, Vince Blando, said the purpose of the building had been bypassed by the board. “The schoolhouse was to be a community center, used by groups for short periods of time,” he said. Another volunteer, Jane Smith, noted the hundreds of hours invested by community members into the building, which was now being used primarily to host a private business. Others said that the school supplies and curriculum materials remaining in the building made it difficult for groups to meet without disturbing the ongoing school projects. A local resident suggested that the day camp proprietors store the materials over weekends, so other groups could meet and conveniently conduct their functions, which Jess LaFountain agreed to. “You call use, we’ll clean it out — we’re not here to make things difficult,” she said. “We’re providing something the local kids don’t otherwise have here.” Rebecca Hopper, parent of a student, praised the day camp program. “They teach respect, citizenship and a sense of community,” she said. “It’s an amazing program.” Tom Magee, chairman of the Gore Mountain Region Community Fund which awarded a grant for the schoolhouse’s renovation, spoke up after listening to the controversy on how the building should be best utilized. “I’m happy that I’ll be reporting to my group that the building and our funds are being used well,” he said.

conduct, plus five hunting violations including taking protected wildlife. The charges were based on a Jan. 6 incident, during which Fish attempted to slug a police officer in the face.

Small movie theaters seek grants to enter digital age By Keith Lobdell

keith@denpubs.com ELIZABETHTOWN — Small, local movie theaters are seeking funds that will keep them from becoming extinct. During the July 16 meeting of the Essex County Finance, Tax Reduction and Mandate Relief Committee, board chairman Randy Douglas of Jay asked supervisors to support a consolidated funding application on behalf of the Adirondack Film Society. “It affects all the small movie theaters in all our small towns like Schroon Lake, Au Sable Forks, Queensbury and Lake Placid,” Douglas said. “All the big movie corporations have given the movie theaters 12 to 18 months to convert all to digital. There will be no movies at these theaters without the conversion, so they are applying as a group.” Along with the theaters above, the grant also applies to the State Theater in Tupper Lake, the Indian Lake Theater and the Strand Theater in Plattsburgh. “It has a huge effect on Main Street America, on the small towns as we try and do things to improve our local downtowns,” Douglas added. “These are hubs in our com-

munities throughout the North Country.” Douglas said that the group was receiving help from Naj Wikoff, who is doing the application for the consolidated grant. “It’s not just about changing the projectors over to digital technology; you also have to modify the sound systems as well and really, you need to get better screens,” Wikoff said. “The point was really driven home during a discussion at the Lake Placid Film Festival when these local theaters came together.” “What we want to do is not only raise the money to help them survive but help them own these projectors outright to get them into a position where they have a better chance to succeed,” he said. “These people often have another job, and they should be able to make a living off of these theaters.” Douglas later said that he has already been working with local representatives to push for funding for these local theaters to make the conversion. “I have been in contact with all of our local representatives and federal senators on the matter,” Douglas said. “There were some that did not even know that this was going on.”

Glen concerns

Glen Drive-In owner Brett Gardner said that it would cost even more money two convert two outdoor projection systems. “We are looking at about 170,000 or more to make the change,” Gardner said. “That is just for the projectors. You are not even talking about the renovations to the projector rooms and air conditioning that will be needed, which will be another big cost.” Gardner said that he had also heard many concerns voiced about problems with the digital technology for drive-ins. “No drive-in wants to switch to digital,” he said. “This is being pushed down our throats.”

Strand-ed

The Strand Theater in Schroon Lake, which has one screen, is also part of the grant application. The theater is owned by Larry and Liz McNamara, and is one the host of the annual Christmas celebration, playing a movie for children. “All of the film companies have been sending out letters bout the changeover,” McNamara said. “It will cost us about $100,000 to do the one. We have talked about

what we are going to do, should we be a little, independent theater or should we just go ahead and shut down.” McNamara said that the grant is key for the theater to continue to offer films. “If we do not get the grant, then I don’t know what to do,” he said. “Nobody is happy about this unless you are one of the giant multiplexes that have a ton of money.”

Indian Lake Theater woes

Danielle Shaw, executive director of the Indian Lake Theater, said that getting the grant would ensure that a vein of the community can remain open. “We are a non-profit community theater and for us, we like to be seen as a community resource in general,” Shaw said. “We have a lot of activities here other than movies and if we were forced to close, it is not just closing the theater for movies but as a community gathering space.” Shaw added that she wanted to make sure that people knew what was happening with the small local theaters. “We need to band together and give people the idea of how these communities will be affected if the theaters close,” she said.

Businesses to receive state funding for flood repairs By Keith Lobdell

keith@denpubs.com ELIZABETHTOWN — Non-profits throughout the region will receive help from the state of New York in their continuing plight to recover from Tropical Storm Irene. The office of Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced the grants, which were awarded to small businesses and notfor-profits in the North Country through the Business Flood Recovery Grant Program, part of 584 eligible entities that sustained direct, flood-related damage as a result of Tropical Storm Irene or Tropical Storm Lee. Overall, the entities will receive a total of $7.9 million in assistance through the Business Flood Recovery Grant Program. Empire State Development (ESD), the agency administering the Business Flood Recovery Grant Program, will provide grants of up to $20,000 to the small businesses, farms, multiple dwellings, and notfor-profits that qualified for the program. “Helping our communities recover from the devastating floods has remained a top priority, and today, we have matched that commitment with critical funding to support their resurgence,” Cuomo said. “This grant program will help those who were hit hardest by the floods get the resources they need to rebuild.” “I’m pleased to join in making this announcement recognizing the need for continued state assistance and the importance of helping employers in our hardhit communities make progress and recover financially,” said Sen. Betty Little said. Businesses and entities that are receiving grants locally include: •M.T. Kissane Enterprises, Inc., Lake George (furniture and fixtures, real estate repair/replacement) •Pucker Ridge Farm, LLC, Warrensburg (real estate repair/replacement) •Sundowner of LG, NY, Inc., Lake George (real estate repair/replacement)

Courthouse from page 1 Supreme Court District 4 Administrative Judge Vito Caruso toured the old county courthouse about six weeks ago with an entourage of assistants including a security expert — and they examined the facility with an intent to restoring its historic use. “They were excited about it,” Dickinson said, adding that the court proceedings to be held in the old courthouse will likely be restricted to non-violent offenders. Monday July 23, the Lake George Town Board voted to spend $950 to have the courthouse’s floorspace plotted so the state can review it and set furnishings up to meet their requirements. For years, the three courtrooms at the Warren County Municipal Center have been overbooked, the existing facilities were deemed inadequate, and the state has been seeking a new site for court proceedings. The court sessions are to be held on a regular schedule, Dickinson said, but not in July or August when tourists are swarming in Lake George. Metal detectors are likely to be installed, plus the front entrance and bathrooms are to be rehabilitated so they accommodate those with mobility disabilities, he added. During Caruso’s visit, the judge offered to provide for the courtroom dozens of antique chairs that he had stored, Dickinson said, noting that the chairs would be similar in age to the court’s historic furnishings. The courthouse might get new twin-pane windows with wavy, antique-looking glass as well as curtains that fit in with the historic setting, he said. Floors may be redone, and chandeliers that were removed from the building in the early 1960s may be replaced, he added. The furnace now works well but may need updating, Dickinson added, noting that the building presently has no central air conditioning. Dickinson said that reusing the old court-

The old Warren County Courthouse, now in use as a historical museum in Lake George Village, is likely to again host court sessions, as the county Municipal Center’s court complex is overburdened, and has been deemed inadequate by state officials. Lake George Supervisor Dennis Dickinson said this week that the town will be upgrading and furnishing the structure to meet state requirements. Photo by Andy Flynn

Welfare recipients from page 1 loaders be subject to the same rules as people who work?” Glens Falls Ward 2 Supervisor Peter McDevitt, however, warned that if indeed enacted, the resolution could backfire and cost the taxpayers more than the savings reaped by discontinuing benefits to drug abusers. “We shouldn’t be supporting programs that run the risk of setting up costly state mandates,” he said. Vanselow said any such law needed Constitutional safeguards. He also said that revoking benefits, particularly

food stamps, would not just effect the adult recipients, but it would also cut off aid to their children, who faced true need. But Glens Falls Ward 5 supervisor Bill Kenny countered that other states had successfully enacted such mandatory testing. “If you can afford alcohol or illegal drugs, you don’t need public assistance,” Kenny said. Addressing a related issue, Board of Supervisors Chairman Dan Stec noted that 11 or 12 percent of the county residents depended on food stamps, and the local expense of administering the program was costly. He said the county

Lake George town-village meeting, the municipal leaders: • Pledged to work out equitable ownership of the Charles Wood Park, without committing to exact percentages allotted to the town, county or village. The town of Lake George has been seeking to buy back partial ownership of the park, and the eventual ratio of ownership by the county, village and town is still in dispute. Recently, the village has backed away from a plan allotting onethird ownership for each. • Agreed to move forward on transferring the ownership of the land — from the village to the town — that hosts the town trash transfer station. This issue has been unresolved for a half-dozen years. •Discussed building an addition on the village hall to host the town code enforcement office as well as the village’s. Such a physical consolidation would likely prompt discussion about merging both code enforcement departments, they said. • Agreed that the town will pay $17,000 toward the weekly concerts, fireworks and programs that the village coordinates and pays more than $80,000 for. • Committed to hold joint hearings on occupancy tax funding requests from event organizers. The coordinated hearing and single application process is likely to yield more equitable funding of events that boost tourism, they said. • Agreed that the town will contribute $10,000 toward the proposed Lake George Skateboard Park, set for development in the northwest corner of the Charles Wood Park. The village has contributed $20,000. • Discussed sharing costs of upgrades to its sewer plant totaling $900,000 or so. Last week the village voted to hire Chazen Engineering for $88,760 to devise a solution to its problem with excess nitrates in its effluent. The impact of this project -- as well as a proposed downtown hotel -- on the town's payments to the village for sewer treatment are likely to be discussed.

would be asking U.S. Rep. Chris Gibson to work toward developing a less expensive manner of operating the federal program. In other business, the county leaders: • Tabled a resolution urging Congress to repeal an existing public subsidy of free cell phone service to low-income citizens -- a cost now shouldered by wireless customers. They set it aside so the request could be reviewed by Gibson. • Authorized Lake George Village to seek out quotes for printing a brochure to market the Charles Wood Environmental Park’s festival space.

Jamboree from page 1

The gates open at 6 p.m. Friday. While youth enjoy the midway and various games, adults can cast bids beginning at 6:30 p.m. in an auction of new and used goods and services donated by area businesses and residents. For decades, Jim Galusha of Thurman has served as auctioneer. The Jamboree’s continued success is because it offers such a wide variety of activities for people of all ages, fire company President Kevin Geraghty said this week. The adults annually enjoy the fun of placing bets on the roulette-style money wheels, attempting to multiply their handfuls of cash, or they test their skill and luck at the blackjack tables. Children traditionally amuse themselves with carnival rides and a midway. There’s an entrance donation of $5 per person on Saturday and $3 on Friday. Saturday, gates open at 5 p.m. as the Warrensburg firefighters grill up their famous chicken barbecue. Appearing for the children — before the AudioStars start their show — will be Freckles the Clown and magician Merdwin the Mediocre. Saturday’s events include fireworks at dusk. Entertainment for youth this second night includes clowns Roscoe and Rowdy. In celebration of the Jamboree’s 50th, the firefighters are bringing back two traditional activities for children — the pie eating contest and a sack race. In another bow to tradition, two firefighters who staffed booths in the early days will be back on duty. George Sprague Jr., now in his 80s, will be serving up the first hot dog on Friday night, just as he did in 1963. Jud Smith, also one of the event’s founders, will be back — and perhaps be pressed into duty. Geraghty recalled that the first Jamboree featured the Doc Williams Country Show, featuring Doc’s wife Chickie, and the band’s blind accordionist Marian Martin. The West Virginia-based band was considered one of the most popular bands touring

Local youngster William Henderson reacts with glee as he watches the action at the 2011 Smoke Eaters’ Jamboree.

the country after World War II. They were joined onstage by Cy Flewelling and the Rhythm Rangers, a Glens Falls-based band who had played alongside Willie Nelson. Back then, the crowd would engage in round and square dancing, Geraghty said. “The music changed over the years as tastes evolved,” Geraghty said, noting that the Jamboree crowds now prefer rock ‘n roll. Some traditional events were abandoned due to liability restrictions. Early Jamborees included people attempting to climb up a tall greased pole to retrieve a few dollars. The auction features a wide variety of quality home furnishings and nick-nacks, Geraghty said. One item that’s bound to

prompt bids is a Tiffany crystal snow globe that contains a model of the Twin Towers and the Manhattan skyline. This gem is joined by such offerings as a load of topsoil, sealcoating and dinners out, Geraghty said. “The generous local businesses have continued to support us this year as they have for many years,” he said. “You name it, we’ve got it in the auction.” Major donors to the Jamboree include Warrensburg Car Care, Glens Falls National Bank, Alexander Funeral Home, Braley & Noxon Hardware, Camp Echo Lake, Jacobs & Toney Meats, Oscar ’s Smoke House, TD Bank, Warren Ford and McDonald’s Restaurant of Warrensburg, plus the local govern-

ment and the Warrensburg Chamber of Commerce. “Our 50th annual Jamboree will bring back a lot of good memories, particularly for the old-timers,” Geraghty said. “People of all ages will be coming out to have a good time, meet up with friends they haven’t seen for a while, and enjoy the music, games, and auction.” Geraghty added that the Jamboree offered unbeatable fun for a modest sum. “The Jamboree features an evening’s worth of fun at an affordable price,” he said. “Through the years, we’ve maintained quite a tradition.”

Railway offers free website listings for businesses By Andy Flynn

andy@denpubs.com NORTH CREEK — Business owners in every community along the Saratoga & North Creek Railway are able to list their establishments for free on the railway’s website. So far, though, only a few towns are taking advantage of this offering. Yet, it’s easy and it’s free advertising. “I call the form ‘plug and play,’” said Luisa Craige-Sherman, marketing and public relations manager for the Saratoga & North Creek Railway. “It is very easy, and if anyone has ever ordered anything online, or even responded to an online survey, they can do it.” Saratoga & North Creek Railway officials are encouraging people who operate businesses, attractions and other services to go to

their website — www.sncrr.com — and type in their information. Once on the home page, click on the button titled, “See all there is to do along the First Wilderness Heritage Corridor.” Then pick the community: •Saratoga Springs •Corinth •Hadley/Luzerne •Stony Creek •Thurman •Glen Hudson Campground •The Glen •Riparius/Riverside •North Creek Once a person clicks the community, listings can be made in six categories: •Lodging •Dining

•Shopping •Activities •Services •Winter activities Then click on “List my business here,” and fill out the form. People must include their name, email address, business name, phone number, location relative to the train depot and brief description (maximum of 75 characters). A website address is optional. So far, only a handful of communities have listings; however, North Creek is ahead of the rest with about 50 listings in all categories, except “winter activities.” Basic information may be uploaded, along with contact information. A website link can be made from the title of the business. Craige-Sherman recommends that businesses along the entire railway take advantage of this free opportunity. “We do a huge amount of media advertising far beyond the purse of most local businesses,” Craige-Sherman said. “Plus we tap into a niche of the railroad enthusiasts and senior and bus tours that most local businesses would never market to or have the resources to do.” Having a one-stop space for information on attractions and services on the railway’s website makes it easy for travelers to plan their

stays. “We are hoping that by showing so much to do that multi-day stays become more the norm,” Craige-Sherman said. “We are starting to see that build slowly. Hotels in North Creek who are doing train packages are starting to see this.” Officials at Iowa Pacific Holdings, the parent company of the Saratoga & North Creek Railway, decided early on to make these free listings available to local businesses. “It is a symbiotic relationship,” CraigeSherman said. “The more visitors see there is a reason to travel to North Creek or other stops along the route, the more passengers we have and the more customers businesses have. It’s win-win.” Changes to listings can be made within a few days. The listings are limited to towns along the railroad line and communities that the railway services by a shuttle, or businesses that provide shuttle service from the train station to their business. Events to be listed should be unique and held in towns along the railroad line. They should preferably be multi-day events. “More communities are looking into thinking this way if they want to tap the passengers on board,” Craige-Sherman said.
