New York hopes gay marriages will boost tourism

Drama: ‘Last of the Mohicans.’ PAGE 12 IN CHESTERTOWN

By Andy Flynn ALBANY — Celebrate marriage equality. Plan your wedding in New York. That’s the message I Love New York officials are sending same-sex couples now that they can legally get married in the state, as of Sunday, July 24. And tourism officials in the Adirondack region say they are thrilled to have the extra attention. Empire State Development (ESD), which operates the I Love New York marketing program, launched a “Save the Date” campaign on July 15 to promote the Empire State as a tourism destination for same-sex weddings and honeymoons.

WCS cuts tax hike, budget woes remain By Thom Randall WARRENSBURG — Residents of the Warrensburg Central School District — who’d expected a tax increase this fall

— will now likely see no increase at all, because of a decision reached this week by school officials. The WCS school board voted Monday July 25 to use $150,000 in surplus money to eliminate a projected 1.92 percent tax increase in the tax levy for

the 2011-12 school year. The decision to give taxpayers some relief was made in a 4-2 vote. Voting for the reduction were board members Dean Moore, Linda Baker Marcella, John MicGlire, and Richelene Morey.

LONG LAKE — For decades, conflicting opinions have been aired about the future of the Adirondacks — whether more de-



velopment or less is better for the future of the region and its people. The debate has occasionally erupted into arguments and court fights between property rights advocates, local residents, politicians and environmentalists.

Five years ago, however, a summit meeting was held to discuss issues related to the future of the Adirondacks, to see how people espousing various opinions could work together for the good of all. Called the Common

Croquet tourney Museum quilt show Several quilts handmade locally will be featured in “Quilts from the Museum Collection,” an exhibit now at the Warrensburgh Museum of Local History. Selected from the dozens of quilted objects donated to the museum since its inception, the show covers several pattern types in a variety of materials and vintages. The show runs through Sept. 28. Represented are such designs as a log cabin — “barn raising” style, Star of Texas, Jacob’s Ladder, pinwheel, “Crazy Ann,” an early applique, and others. One on display is an intricate crazy quilt made in 1881 by Nellie Jane Alden at the age of 12. Like many quilts in the collection, this one was passed down through several generations of the family before

being donated to the museum. Early family names, such as Alden, Woodward, Hill, Guiles, Wood and Soper are represented in the show. Included is a quilt made by Warrensburg residents in 1976 in commemoration of the American Bicentennial. Each of 30 squares depicts a local landmark or theme. The show was curated by Rita Ferraro, with assistance from museum volunteers Liz Sebald and Jean Roush. Technical advice was provided by nationally known quilting expert Linda Denner. Operated for the Town of Warrensburg by the Warrensburgh Historical Society, the museum is open Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays from 1 to 4 p.m., plus the first Thursday of the month from 6 to 8 p.m.

The Warrensburgh Historical Society will host its 15th annual Sticky Wicket Croquet Games & Picnic on Sunday, Aug. 14 on the Warren County Fish Hatchery Grounds off Echo Lake Road. To occur from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., this year ’s event will be held in memory of the late Cal Engle, a pillar of Warrensburg for decades. The picnic is free. Attendees are invited to bring a dish to share. Barbecued chicken and beverages will be provided. Tournament entry fee is $5, and there’s a maximum of 32 participants — signup is to be held from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. All donations are to benefit the work of the Warrensburgh Historical Society. For details, call 623-2207 or see:

Camp Sagamore trip The Hadley Luzerne Historical Society has planned a bus trip Sept. 11 to the Great Camp Sagamore. The excursion includes a tour of the famed Adirondack landmark and a history cruise on the WW Durant on Raquette Lake. The boat trip includes a hot and cold buffet dinner cruise. The cost of the excursion is $68 per person.

Alumni banquet

The annual Warrensburg Central School Alumni Banquet is to be held Aug. 6 at Roaring Brook Ranch, and reservations should be made as soon as possible. Sponsored by the WCS Alumni Association, the event includes cocktails from 5 to 7 p.m., followed by dinner. Entrees include roast sirloin, Chicken Francese or baked stuffed filet of sole. This year, Marilyn Hastings Becker is to be honored as Alumnus of the Year. Marilyn graduated in the class of 1955 and went on to become a history teacher, a town councilwoman in Chalfont, Pa. and then moving up to mayor of the municipality, a post in which she has served

Clarification on truck , sewer rates WARRENSBURG — The town of Warrensburg’s 1988 Ford L-8000 dump truck will be auctioned off at the Smoke Eaters’ Jamboree for a minimum bid of $2,000. The entire revenue from the sale of the truck will go to the town government — not to the fire company. At their July meeting, the Town Board approved a reduction of the operation and maintenance portion of the sewer rate to $75.50 per year for residents who do not reside in Warrensburg for the full year. The debt service assessment for all households remains at $200 per year.

Jamboree to offer auction, games, rides, fireworks, rock ‘n’ roll By Thom Randall WA R R E N S B U R G — F o r nearly a half-century, an upcounty carnival-type event has been regarded as the highlight of the summer for children and adults alike. For 49 years, the Smoke Eaters’ Jamboree — a combination of a carnival and an old-time fair — has annually provided a super-sized serving of family fun. The two-day event combines carnival rides, a midway, an auction of donated goods, top-name musical entertainment, a savory barbecue, fireworks and games of chance. The event will be held this year Friday and Saturday evenings, July 29 and 30, at its traditional site, the Warrensburg Recreation Field on Library Ave. The renowned rock ‘n’ roll band The AudioStars is booked for Saturday beginning at 7 p.m., and they’re expected to draw a substantial crowd with their kinetic, energetic brand of classic

rock ‘n roll. For children, ventriloquist Bob Carroll will be on hand. The tasty, traditional firefighters’ chicken barbecue will also be featured on Saturday, starting at 5 p.m. As always, the day will end with an impressive fireworks display. The gates open at 6 p.m. Friday. While youth enjoy a variety of games and several clowns circulating on premises, adults can cast bids beginning at 6:30 p.m. in an auction of both new and used goods and services donated by area businesses and individuals. For decades at the Jamboree, Jim Galusha of Thurman has called the shots. The Jamboree’s continued success is because it offers such a wide variety of activities for people of all ages, according to Kevin Geraghty, President of the Warrensburg Fire Co. which conducts the Jamboree as its major fundraiser. Adults annually enjoy the fun of placing bets on the roulette-style money wheels, attempting to multi-

There’s an entrance donation of $3 on Friday and $5 on Saturday. Gates open at 5 p.m. on Saturday as the Warrensburg firefighters grill up their famous chicken barbecue.

Spahn suggests budget plan

Bolton resident and loyal Adirondack Journal reader Kathy Spahn suggests that National Grid’s budget plan makes sense considering how income can vary through the year for many area households. Those who are making extra money this summer should consider signing up for the budget plan which spreads out payments to a more level amount through the year. To enroll, call (800) 642-4272.

The free event takes place at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 1 at the Bolton Free Library, Route 9N, Bolton Landing. Mikulak’s film is an irreverent documentary of the rise and fall of Grammy-nominated polka music superstar Jan Lewan, whose defection from Poland to Pennsylvania led to fame, fortune and an international Polka Empire. But when Lewan's empire collapsed under a cloud of scandal, the polka world was stunned to learn of the greatest polka-related financial crime in history. “This entertaining film, part comic and part tragic, is an instance of fact being stranger than fiction,” Sembrich artistic director Richard Wargo said. “And we’re delighted that John Mikulak is able to join us for this screening to offer us a rare behind-the-scenes glimpse into the filming of this true-life story.” “One of the most important qualities when doing a documentary is tenacity,” says Mikulak. “You simply cannot waiver in your commitment to soldiering through and finishing your project.” The Aug. 1 screening is a continuation of The Sembrich’s Summer Film Series at the Bolton Free Library.

Adirondack Journal Editorial

APA at a crossroads C

hairman Curt Stiles’ decision to step down from his throne at the Adirondack Park Agency next month could be like cutting the head off the proverbial snake. From our perspective, the ex-Marine turned Adirondack Council leader then APA chair has done little to bridge the deep divide that exists over how the agency enforces environmental standards here. You’d have to go back to the late 1980s to find more malcontent with the APA than exists today. At that time, a commission appointed by then Gov. Mario Cuomo was proposing even harsher land use restrictions, but Cuomo eventually gave in to the will of the people. Now, another Cuomo has the same opportunity with the soon-to-be-vacant chairmanship. The question is, will the devil we get be worse than the devil we got? Adirondack Park Local Government Review Board Chairman Fred Monroe has his reservations. Often an outspoken critic of Stiles during his four-year tenure, Monroe now says Stiles spent the last several months working with the Review Board to change some of the Agency’s iron-fisted procedures, like how it doles out exorbitant fines, even in cases involving a relatively minor violation; or how it fines those who voluntarily step forward or those who inherit pre-existing problems. Stiles, to his credit, worked with the Review Board to draft new civil penalty guidelines that were adopted in April, Monroe pointed out. More recently, Monroe said his board was in talks with Stiles to alter the Agency’s procedures so the economic impact of a project is taken into consideration during the approval process. Currently, Agency staff is only concerned with environmental factors, essentially ignoring the human equation of how a project might better the standard of living here. Those talks will most likely stall when Stiles leaves on Aug. 12, Monroe fears. Monroe also pointed out that Stiles is at least an Adirondack Park resident — the governor is not bound to appoint the same to the seat. In fact, past chairs have been year-round residents from as far away as New York City — people chosen more for their polit-

ical connections then their interest in the region. A decision like that would only pour gas on the fire. While we are well aware that politics plays a part in these decisions, we believe the APA is at an important crossroads, and the governor could go a long way toward healing the mistrust by choosing the right individual for this position. First and foremost, Cuomo needs to clear the Agency of special interest groups. Just as a former leader of a pro-industry lobby group would most likely not be the best choice for APA chairman, neither is a former executive director of an environmental group. The point made last fall by the Review Board that the APA Board of Commissioners is “stacked with leaders of environmental advocacy groups” is a valid one. Adirondack people are not stupid. We see this infiltration as a systematic move to force a one-sided vision of land use in the Adirondacks, and the Agency’s interpretation of the APA Act under Stiles has been reflective of that. Until that changes, there will be no balance on the board and the Agency will continue to be viewed as biased and self serving. At the same time, the Agency — especially the chairman — needs to be accessible to the public. Disclosure and open media communication is key, something Stiles is not noted for. Love him or hate him, these are precisely the points Essex farm owner and former Wall Street executive Sandy Lewis has made all along, that the Agency is needed, just not this Agency with Stiles as the lone-star general.

•100 Years Ago – July/August 1911• Fire rages at Hill View farm Two buildings on Dr. Nordstrom’s place at Hill View (now Diamond Point), the barn and a house occupied by an employee were struck by lightning about 4 p.m. Aug. 6, 1911 and were destroyed by fire. The outbuildings adjoining were also considerably damaged. Both buildings were struck by the same bolt of lightening. The upper part of the barn, filled with dry hay, quickly ignited and burned with such rapidity that the men were barely able to remove six horses from the lower part of the building, leaving the costly wagons, harnesses and robes to be destroyed by the flames. Little was saved from the house and in a short time it was in ruins. The wind was blowing away from D. Nordstrom’s residence and it was uninjured and two outbuildings near the burning barn were saved only by great effort. The loss is estimated at $10,000 and a new house to replace the burned structure was started three days later.

Stoddard’s road map debuts

Seneca Ray Stoddard’s new road map of the Adirondacks for 1911 is finally out. It shows the territory on both sides of Lake Champlain extending west to Tupper and Long Lakes and from the Canada line to Saratoga on a scale of four miles to an inch with a smaller map of the Thousand Islands, the Mohawk Valley and the Hudson River to New York City. The map is in two colors, a tint with roads and trunk lines and notable hotels are shown in red. Topographically the map is truly excellent.

Circus was a booming success

People from the northern towns who were

going to Glens Falls on Aug. 9, 1911 to attend the Barnum and Bailey Circus, took the D. & H. to Thurman, came to Warrensburgh by stage and than traveled by trolley car to Glens Falls direct to the circus grounds. The Soper & Somerville stage line connected with all trains at Thurman Station. About 200 to 300 Warrensburgh people helped to make up the audience of 10,000 at the afternoon performance of the circus. Many others went down for the evening show when there were 8,000 people present. (Note: A description of this great event appeared in this column on July 23, 2011 in the Adirondack Journal.)

Society event in Chester

On July 26, 1911, Miss Laura Thurston, one of Chestertown’s fairest daughters, became the bride of Jesse F. Mills of Chaparra, Cuba. The wedding took place at the home of the bride’s mother, Mrs. A.C. Thurston in Chestertown and it was the crowning society event of the season. The bride was attired in a gown of white chiffon cloth with pearl trimmings and the only jewelry she wore was a stunning pearl necklace, the gift of the groom. She carried a shower bouquet of sweet peas and lilies of the valley. After the wedding luncheon, the happy pair departed on an automobile trip through the Adirondacks and later took up residence at Chaparra where Mr. Mills is connected with the largest sugar plantation in the entire world.

Death of local young men

Duncon Dow, 44, died July 30, 1911 at his home in Thurman after a week’s illness of typhoid fever. He leaves a widow and five children. Internment was in the Cameron Cemetery. Judson Fuller, 39, a well-known Adiron-

Adirondack Journal - 7

dack guide and sportsman, died of tuberculosis Aug. 2, 1911 at his home in Stony Creek. Besides his widow he is survived by two sons, Joseph and Solon and one daughter, Addie Fuller. Internment was in the Stony Creek Cemetery. Arthur E. Codner, 21, died Aug. 8, 1911 at the Comstock Hospital in Saratoga Springs where he was operated upon for appendicitis. He is survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. George Codner, a brother, Orville Codner and a sister, Beatrice Codner, all of West Stony Creek. He was buried in the Warrensburgh Cemetery.

Riverside revival meeting thrives

In nature’s temple, under the spreading branches of the magnificent shade trees of beautiful Riverside grove, on the bank of the sparkling Hudson River, amid surroundings especially favorable for religious meditation, the Riverside Grove Association held its annual religious camp meeting Aug. 16, 1911, under the auspices of the Troy Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church. The Rev. Thomas O. Grieves of Greenwich acted as musical director. (Note…In this column in the May 21, 2011 Adirondack Journal, was the sad story of eight-year-old Mary Maginn who was accidentally run over May 13, 1911 and killed by Rev. Grieves’ powerful touring car in Saratoga Springs. This good man was so grief stricken that he sold his car, his cottage at Riverside campgrounds and most of his belongings to raise $1,000 to give to Mary’s family who decided to not press charges.)

Lost, strayed

A lady’s purse containing a sum of money was lost Aug. 3 on Main Street, Warrensburgh, near the Burhans’ place (near the present-day town hall). Will the man who was seen picking it up please return it to the

owner, Miss Pearl Pasko and save himself some serious trouble? (Note: Miss Pasko lived in a house now long-gone, just north of the Glens Falls National Bank). Notice - Whereas my wife, Nellie, having left my bed and board without just cause or provocation, I hereby forbid any persons trusting or harboring her on my account as I shall pay no bills contracted by her after this date, July 27, 1911. Claude Potter, The Glen.

Letters to the Editor Thanks to those who shared their views To the Adirondack Journal: As those who have regularly attended Warrensburg Central School District budget presentations, there was “excess” money of about $332,000 in the school district’s unreserved fund balance. Over the past six months or so, there’s been a recurring debate — extending up through Monday — over

whether this money should be set aside for potential future shortfalls and to cover projected increased staff retirement costs, or to return the money to taxpayers as is prescribed by state law. Monday, the WCS Board of Education decided to use $150,000 of that sum to erase a projected 1.92 percent tax increase. A good number of residents of the school district apparently contacted school board members, letting them know how this excess money should be used. Those who expressed

Alexander from page 6 They love telling the press what happened behind closed doors from their perspective. Why can’t they let us judge for ourselves when we can read, see and hear the actual comments made. Our political leaders are playing chicken with our lives and our children’s futures, with each side trying to play the righteous party. In the end, when a deal is finally struck, they both smugly spin it as a major victory for their party and for the American people. In the end, I fear America will lose because their solution will not go far enough, nor be balanced enough to really solve the problem. The solution will likely be just enough to claim victory and put yet another Band-Aid over an addiction to taxes and spending.

their opinion to the board deserve our praise, because they offered their input and helped the board understand their positions. Many people think their opinion doesn’t count, but it truly does. This has been a good example of participation in public policy, and more of this type of interaction by community members is desirable, and not just when a crisis arises or hot topics dominate newspaper headlines. Sheila Mender Warrensburg

At this very moment, the political parties are raising funds, not to be applied to the debt but to pour dollars into their coffers to further their political agendas. Their visions for America are so one sided there is no place for the other viewpoint. As such they can’t see that America should be focused on solving the problem and not on widening the divide between us. Unless both parties come to the American people, when this issue is resolved, and admit that they were forced to cave in on some of their strongest demands in order to achieve passage, America will not have a solution to this crisis. Both parties will need to lose for America to win and I fear neither side will let that happen. Dan Alexander is publisher and owner of Denton Publications. He may be reached at

Thurman ‘Quarterly’ released

Pontoon cruises on Schroon Lake

THURMAN — The summer issue of the John Thurman Historical Society’s “Quarterly” publication was recently released. The Quarterly contains reminiscences by many local residents. Leila Fuller Wood, 90, recalls visiting the farm her grandparents, Edwin and Ella Purvee Langworthy, rented near what is now Potter Brook Road — a farm known then as the old Arthur Morrison place. The story is illustrated with a drawing by Mrs. Wood’s brother, Edwin Fuller. Also in the publication are memories of fiddler Ken Bonner contributed by Irene Hall, recollections by Carolyn Grotevant and Myrtle Buyce of visiting Thurman as a child, and a book review by local historian John Warren, as well as photos of the Memorial Day Weekend flooding in Thurman. Inserted in this latest issue is an invitation to help the John Thurman Historical Society raise funds by participating in their “Foodless Food Sale.” By contributing cash, rather than spending a morning baking, folks don’t consume empty calories; avoid sifting and stirring and bypass a hot oven in a steamy summer. Just send a check to P.O .Box 7, Athol, NY 12810. The “Quarterly” may be purchased for $4 at many local outlets: the Wevertown Country Store, and in Warrensburg at Richards Library, Nemec’s Sporting Goods, Glens Falls National Bank, Rebecca's Flowers and Willows Bistro. In Thurman, the Quarterly can be obtained at the town hall.

SCHROON LAKE — Narrated cruises aboard a pontoon boat on Schroon Lake are returning for 2011. The cruises are held each Tuesday and Thursday morning at 11 a.m. The excursions depart from the Word of Life Island dock just south of the village at Island Access Way. The cruised provide passengers with scenic views as well as a narrated tour focusing on the history of Schroon Lake area. Descriptions of former grand hotels and camps are included in the narration by Laura Donaldson from the Schroon Lake Chamber of Commerce. The pontoon boat is provided courtesy of Word of Life Fellowship. Donations for tickets are $8 per person. No children under age 6 are accommodated. Tickets for the cruise can be obtained in advance at the Schroon Lake Information Center on Main Street in Schroon Lake village. Pre-registration is urged due to limited seating. Tickets are sold on the boat for $10 if seating is available. For details, call the Chamber at 532-7675.

Ministry sets Summer Jackpot

WARRENSBURG — As a fundraiser to help area residents in need, North Country Ministry has launched its Summer Jackpot raffle. Tickets are $100 each, and only 200 tickets are to be sold. Prizes are $5,000. $3,000 and $2,000. If less than 200 tickets are sold, prizes will be distributed on a 5-3-2 ratio. The drawing is to occur Sunday, Sept. 18 at North Country Ministry’s golf tournament at Cronin’s Resort in Warrensburg. For details on the event, see the Town Talk column on page 2 in this issue. This is the 20th year that North Country Ministry has serving people of the rural upcounty region with financial assistance, advocacy, counseling, clothing, food, and emergency assistance.

Agency seeks clothing donations

WARRENSBURG — North Country Ministry which operates their Clothing Center and Baby’s Place in Warrensburg, is now seeking new or used children’s summer clothing. Those with clothing in good condition — to fit infants through teens — are urged to drop off the items at their headquarters on Main St. across from the Warrensburg Post Office. Due to a financial squeeze, North Country Ministry’s Clothing Center and Baby’s Place will be to establish a minimal charge for clothing beginning Aug. 1. Rising prices for heat, electric and the growing demand for financial assistance have all challenged the agency’s funding sources, a Ministry representative said this week. In response, the Ministry board members decided that one step to offset the deficit will be to introduce charges for clothing. From August forward, there will be $1 per bag charge for clothing. The agency will, however, provide clothing without cost to those in greatest need.

The cottage, just off I-87 Northway Exit 16, has been termed as one of the "BestKept Secrets in the Capital Region." The Cottage, located on Mt. McGregor near Wilton, is the dwelling where the celebrated general and our nation's 18th president spent his final days. The Grant Cottage is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesdays through Sundays, Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day. For details, see: or call: 584-4353.

Lake George Community Band Festival entertains the crowds

LAKE GEORGE — When hundreds of musicians convene and play their instruments, apparently a lot more occurs than the strains of pleasant music for all to enjoy. There’s camaraderie, generosity and good times, as well, considering the goings-on at the July 15-16 Lake George Community Band Festival. No less than 13 community bands from the Northeastern U.S. and Canada were featured at the event, which stretched over three days. Festival organizers said the audience may have set a record in it’s seventh year of existence. Attendees reminisced, renewed friendships, collaborated on various performances, and listened intently to each other ’s music — with some of the musicians savoring it for 12 hours on Saturday, an event official said. “It was amazing, just spectacular,” said Dale Perry, Vice President of the Lake George Community Band, which hosts the festival. “The members of the bands were ‘in synch’ for their performances, playing perfectly,” Perry said. The musicians at the event, although their individual bands need money, don’t seek donations although many in the audience would be willing to chip in — an anomaly in today’s world Perry said. Among the featured concerts— in addition to the host band’s selections — was a performance by the Sunglow Polka Band lead by John Herzog of Lake George. His group’s traditional music energized the crowd, Perry said. “The crowd just loved it,” he said. “For 2011, the festival was bigger and better than ever, and it went off without a hitch.”

Golf tourney dedicated to fallen local soldier set for Aug. 6 By Thom Randall CHESTERTOWN — Two years ago, Jeremiah Monroe of Brant Lake, a U.S. Army soldier, gave the ultimate sacrifice for his nation. Since then, local people have paid heartfelt tribute, in an unprecedented manner, back to Jeremiah Monroe for his service to the country and its citizens. Monroe was killed in September 2009 while on patrol in Kandahar, Afghanistan. He was the first soldier from the Brant Lake area to die on duty since World War II.

Although it has been nearly two years since hundreds of townspeople lined the streets to pay respects as 300 vehicles in Monroe’s funeral procession passed by, that special relationship between Jeremiah Monroe and the community is as strong as ever. Not only did dozens of area citizens gather last summer to dedicate a town park in Adirondack in his name, but many returned to pay tribute this year on Memorial Day as well, for a reverent but impassioned ceremony to again recognize Jeremiah’s service to his nation. But that’s not all. The Monroe family, along with others, have established the annual Jeremiah Monroe Memorial Golf Tournament. This year ’s tourney is set for Saturday, Aug. 6 at Green Mansions Golf Club in Chestertown. The proceeds of the event are contributed to the Wounded Warrior Project, a non-profit group that aids injured soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan — with therapy, counseling and prosthetics. Through the tournament, lives of other soldiers are healed and uplifted. No less than 88 local golfers signed up in 2010 for this living tribute to Jeremiah Monroe — a way they can bond with his memory, express appreciation for his service, while helping U.S. soldiers in need. This year, there were 112 golfers signed up as of July 25. Last year ’s event raised about $7,500 for the Wounded Warrior charity, said event organizer Rob Monroe, Jeremiah’s younger brother. He said that morning tee times are still available. There’s a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m. $80 per golfer includes cart, beverages and lunch. Those golfing in the afternoon are to

Sheriff’s budget squeezed by inmates, high fuel and overtime By Thom Randall QUEENSBURY — A rising number of inmates in jail, increased fuel prices and unexpected overtime are crimping the Warren County Sheriff ’s budget — but money seized from suspected drug dealers seizure revenue may ease the pain. Sheriff Bud York delivered the mixed news Monday, July 25 to members of the Warren County Board of Supervisors. An increasing population of local prisoners has been filling up the jail, reducing the number of beds available to rent out to other counties for their inmates — a service which brings in hundreds of thousands of dollars per year. Warren County had expected $725,000 for board inmates from afar, but the revenue may only be half that much, York said. To date this year, the county has a $100,000 shortfall in jail boarding revenue, he said. County jail administrator Michael Gates said that as of July 9, 175 of the 186 beds at

WCS budget from page 1 Board members Laura Danna and Beth Callahan noted No, and James Carrion was absent. Dissenting board members warned their peers that money needed to be saved to relieve upcoming budget pressures, including increasing retirement costs, building repairs and falling revenues. The vote followed a proposal from school administrators to earmark $225,000 in surplus funds to an employee retirement reserve fund, an initiative that was rejected. The $150,000 is a portion of a $332,000 sum that exceeds a state-mandated limit in surplus funds of 4 percent of a school district’s budget, School Business Administrator Cynthia Turcotte said Wednesday.

the jail were filled — dozens more than have historically occupied by local inmates. York said that the increase in local inmates represented a clear long-term trend. “You can’t plan on making these revenues forever,” he said, suggesting that county supervisors budget revenues of only $350,000 next year. York said that unexpected overtime from personnel filling in for injured officers in his department added to the budget shortfall. He said that overtime costs in the jail division alone were running $35,000 above the 2011 budget. In addition, high fuel prices are costing the county about $47,000 more to date this year than expected. The 2011 budget allocates $200,000 for fuel to operate vehicles. York noted, however, that his department is expecting $650,000 in seizure revenues involving drug cases in which the sheriff ’s department was involved. He cautioned, however, that the money could be used for particular expenses, like buying patrol cars, but couldn’t necessarily be spent to offset operating shortfalls. Administrators and school board members had sought to keep the surplus intact to cushion any shock from spiraling expenses and falling revenues, she said. Also, the local teachers’ union contract, which expired June 30, is still not settled, Turcotte said. If there’s no contract in place by September, teachers will get their automatic annual “step” raise which amounts to 1.87 percent on average, she said. Budget issues the school district is facing in 2011-12 include a boost in faculty and staff retirement costs of several hundred thousand dollars, hiked fuel costs that are likely to cost taxpayers $50,000 or so more, and a lack of federal stimulus funds which in 2010-11 provided $311,000 in cash to offset expenses, Turcotte said. “This is likely to make the budget tighter, and allow less flexibility in budgeting,” she said of the $150,000 taxpayer rebate.

‘Last of Mohicans’ drama debuts July 29 By Thom Randall LAKE GEORGE — The Last of the Mohicans Outdoor drama, envisioned to be a permanent local attraction, is opening Friday, July 29 for summer 2011. This year, the production has moved to Wild West Ranch off Rte. 9 and Bloody Pond Road from its previous venue in the historic Fort William Henry. In 2010, the production was greeted with successive sellout crowds. Last summer the audiences enjoyed an actionpacked presentation complete with cannon and musket fire, characters bearing fiery torches, Native American drumming and dancing, live horses, and special effects including pyrotechnics providing an illusion that the Fort itself was ablaze. This summer, the audience may have an even more gripping experience.

Luisa Craige-Sherman, a board member of the production team, said the new setting, complete with open fields, clumps of trees and rocky bluffs, added a compelling realism to the show. “The lighting, scenery and surroundings are superb,” she said. “Having it in the woodland setting at night, the context is so believable — it feels like you’re part of the story.” The drama, written by director/playwright Michael Dufault, is based on James Fenimore’s classic book by the same name. The novel was based on events of the French and Indian War, which included the bloody siege of Fort William Henry in 1757. Dufault has been working on writing the drama for the past eight years, lining up financing for the show, and seeking sponsors. He has been aiming to establish the show as a permanent tourist attraction, like Tecumseh has been in

Ohio since 1973, and how The Lost Colony has been a staple for visitors to North Carolina since 1937. Suzanne Baker, an actress from Averill Park who is playing the role of Mother Willow, a Huron tribe leader, said Wednesday July 25 she was thoroughly impressed with the production. She has appeared in over 30 community theater shows. “I’ve never been involved in such a professional, high class production, from the technicians and actors, to the wardrobe personnel and pyrotechnic experts,” she said. “The rehearsals have been exhausting yet exhilarating.” Performances are at 8 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays through Aug. 20. Seating begins 30 minutes before the show. Tickets are available at the box office or online at, or by calling 681-1574.

Decorating a screened-in porch A screened-in porch or a three-season room can be a welcome space that adds viable living area to a house. Oftentimes, these rooms serve as a bridge between the indoors and outside, and they can offer the creature comforts of any other room in the home. Just as they would a bedroom or family room, many homeowners prefer to decorate this area so it doesn't look like an extension of the backyard, instead showcasing the homeowner's personal style. Homeowners can add many accents to a screenedin porch. Keep in mind that because this three-season room will likely need to endure the weather, including moisture and sunlight, decorating should be planned accordingly. Turn a screened-in porch into a welcoming space with a few different ideas. Here are some things to consider. * Think about adding sheer curtains to create privacy and keep sun out on hot days. It is important to choose fabrics that are fade-resistant but also resistant to mold and mildew. Muslin or even mosquito netting in different shades can be draped to add some visual interest. * Look for outdoor furniture that is both comfortable and attractive. Wicker, wood and wrought-iron are popular materials for outdoor designs. There are also cushions crafted from weatherproof materials that can add a pop of color and comfort to the space. * Enhance the area with some wall art. Hang an anchor for a nautical theme, or some whimsical accessories to create a kitschy country feel. * Spruce up the lighting so it's not sterile outdoor flood lights. Install a ceiling fan to circulate the air and add some aesthetic appeal. Or consider hanging a chandelier made of materials that are impervious to the weather, like seashells or bamboo. * Just because you're adjacent to the yard doesn't mean you can't bring some plant life inside of the

screened room as well. Potted plants will soften the room and add color and a homey feeling to the space. Just be aware that outdoor plants have to be watered more frequently than indoor plants because of their tendency to dry out in the sun. * Define the entertaining space with a throw rug made from outdoor fabric. Essentially you can create a mini living room right outside. * Be sure there is an electrical outlet available on the porch so that you can plug in a radio or even a tabletop lamp if you enjoy reading in the twilight areas. An outlet can also make it possible to plug in a small fountain or water feature. The creature comforts of indoors can be extended to a three-season room or screened-in porch to provide another space in the home in which to entertain or relax.

Keep our local squad! People in Thurman speak out! We do not want to lose our local emergency squad! We understand that, as with any town, it is necessary to have a back-up squad — or two — to help out in emergencies. Also, to dissolve our own squad is going against town residents' wishes. Questions being called in include: •What happens if three or four calls for help are received at the same time? •Would the new squad answer the two in town first, or respond first for those Thurman residents who need help? •If the squad is dissolved, what happens to the Thurman squad building which was to be used as an emergency shelter in cases of weather-related disasters? How many residents would like to turn the clock back a few years before everything in the town was being canceled or deleted! The town board members are being asked to do the right thing for the residents! We are fortunate to have folks who are seldom ill and don’t need the attention that the board seems to think is needed to keep a squad in our town.

Election news

The deadline has passed for political candidates representing the Democratic and Republican parties to turn in their petitions for the upcoming 2011 elections, and they are unchallenged within their parties. However, there is still time to collect signatures and secure a position on the ballot as an independent candidate. These petitions are due at the Warren County Board of Elections between Aug. 16 and Aug. 23. Those local residents who are going to be out of the area at the time of the elec-

tion, remember to call the board of elections at 7616459 for an absentee ballot.

Activities and events

On Monday, Aug. 1 the Lustre Kings , an acclaimed retro-rock group, will be performing in a free concert at 7 p.m. in Veterans Memorial Park in Athol. People are urged to bring chairs. The Thurman V olunteer Fire Co. will hold a meeting at 7 p.m. Monday, Aug. 1 at the fire hall in Athol. It is open to the public. The new locally managed Gleaning free food distribution will occur at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 2. All residents are welcome. Bring a bag to take the food home. The John Thurman Historical Society meets at 7 p.m. Aug. 2 at the Thurman Town Hall. Jim Ligon will be speaking on covered bridges. All are welcome. Countryside Adult Home on Schroon River Road will be holding a family picnic Sept. 11. All family members, friends and former neighbors are invited to join residents of the home. A rabies clinic will be held at the Brant Lake Fire Hall from 10 a.m. to noon a.m. Saturday, Aug. 6. The Russell family reunion will be held from noon to 5 p.m. Aug. 13 at the Echo Lake park in Warrensburg. People are asked to bring a dish to pass for the picnic. Call 623-3843.

Over the fence

Free llama fertilizer is available for gardeners. Bring your own containers. Call 623-3987 for details. The drug and alcohol anonymous tip line to keep handy in case you see any illegal happenings is 7619800. A call could help a friend who might have become involved in something they can’t handle. I’m wondering about dispatch services in an incident that occurred recently in

Thurman. A pickup truck parked in a driveway burst into flames, and a passerby alerted the owner. The gentleman called 911 and was told by a dispatcher to call the local fire company. The man had to look up the number in a phone book. There seems to be something about this incident that doesn’t compute. Perhaps the 911 system was down, or the call was via a cell phone, in which instance it can be routed to a variety of places. Do you remember how nice it is to get a newsy letter through the mail from an old friend? This is certainly rare in the modern world. Thurman residents that have a business venture are urged to be a vendor at the Thurman Fall Farm T our event. Businesses and individuals are welcome to set up a table, show photographs, samples of products or craft works. Call 623-9595 or 623-9305 to participate.

Thurman - Adirondack Journal - 19

Tourism advertising money prompts controversy at town board meeting By Evie Russell THURMAN — A clash of opinions were aired at the June Thurman Town Board meeting between those who support spending tax money on advertising town events, and those who don’t. Town publicist Perky Granger requested that the town board consider authorizing more money this year to publicize the town events. Councilman Vasak challenged the advertising, saying it cost a lot of money and he couldn’t see how the town gained from it. Perky Granger responded that when many business owners are in financial stress when their sales are down, they routinely assume they should cut advertising and promotional expenses to save money, but they really should do the opposite — advertise and promote even more to increase their business. For years, Granger has sought to energize the local economy, which includes maple sugar and specialty food production operations, home-based crafts production, through organizing and promoting tourism. Local resident Dave Hyde, however, offered an opposing opinion. He said that more local residents don’t want more tourism than do want it. Thurman, without attractions or a Main Street, is not suited for tourism, he said, noting that the town offered a nice quiet place to live. Hyde’s comments prompted a loud round of applause. Granger, has noted, however, that bringing people into town, whether it’s the Thurman Maple Days, the Thurman Fall Farm Tour or the Townwide Sale in May, boosts local families’ finances and creates local jobs as well as contributing to a sustainable local lifestyle. She has worked for many years on promoting local events toward these goals. In conclusion, the Town Board voted down a motion to allocate $800 more for publicity from occupancy tax funds by a vote of 4 to 1. Councilman Leon Galusha cast the lone vote in support of the measure. At the July board meeting, however, the board voted to allocate $780 more for the Fall Farm Tour to cover liability insurance expenses related to using the Thurman Station train platform for vendors. Pam Morin, a publicist for various events for Warren County, gave a presentation regarding the First Wilderness Corridor pro-

gram and the train’s role in this historic tourism initiative. She requested that the town support efforts for arranging activities for visitors getting off the train at Thurman station. Also at the June meeting, the Town Board formally appointed Perky Granger, David Kenyon, Aimee and Doug Azaert to the town Occupancy Tax Committee. Delbert Chambers suggested that a noise ordinance be established in anticipation of more noise that could occur with increased tourism. In other business, Wood expressed thanks on behalf of the town to the Queensbury Ladies Auxiliary to V.F.W. Post 6196 for sending a donation of $100 to the town to help out the townspeople who have been enduring $7 million of flash-flood damage to roadways as well as their own properties. In voting unanimously for the donation, the Auxiliary members said they sought to help Thurman residents “whose lives have been turned upside down” by the flooding. Wood remarked that the new two-day festival Woodsmans’ Days is canceled for 2011, due to flood damage concerns, which have resulted in several projects being put on hold. Resident Carolyn Cyr asked if occupancy tax money could be spent on roads and Paula Hubert asked if it could be spent on the Harris House. Wood said she had looked into spending it on signs and beautification but that using it on the Harris House was a “gray area.” It was noted that Tonya Springer has resigned as court clerk for Thurman, and the issue of appointing her replacement was tabled. Resident Donna Knickerbocker was hired as cleaner for the town hall at the rate of $7.59 per hour for nine hours per week. She replaces Grace Flynn, who recently retired from the post. Also, Kathryn Schwartz was hired as Program Director for the summer youth program at $13 per hour, and Brandi Baker, Kim Schmidt, and Brandon Schwartz were hired as youth assistants to be paid minimum wage. Two resignations have recently occurred — one from the Youth Commission Board, and another from Thurman Beautification Committee. The Town Board also approved to modify the official time of the monthly town business meeting, from 7 p.m. to a new time — immediately following the town financial meeting which begins at 6:30 p.m. The next meeting will be Aug. 9.

Saratoga-North Creek Railway debuts service By John Grybos NORTH CREEK — The Saratoga-North Creek Railway ran its first public rides on Saturday, July 23. “It went fantastic,” said Shelley Spendiff, sales and marketing associate for the railroad line. They had more than 130 passengers over the weekend, with the Saratoga stop being the busiest. This is right in line with Iowa Pacific’s expectations, and they expect more people to ride as word-of-mouth spreads, said Sarah Munley, corporate sales and marketing director. “We had a lot of walk-ins at both train stations,” Spendiff said, referring to Saratoga and North Creek. General Manager Steve Torrico has emphasized the importance of the rail not only as a tourism destination, but a vital mode of travel into and out of the area. This railway, operated on tracks owned primarily by Warren County, links Warren County to Saratoga County via rail for the first time since 1956. Just as the company hoped, passengers are beginning to use the railroad as a passenger line. This weekend past weekend, two women from New York City took Amtrak to the Saratoga station, then transferred to the North Creek rail to visit family there, according to Spendiff.

The staff brought in from the western lines are now living in North Creek, Spendiff said, and the local office — a small, white building near the depot — will be Torrico’s base of operations. The meal offerings on board were popular. “We’re getting fabulous compliments; everybody’s raving about the food,” she said. Iowa Pacific delayed the launch of the railroad twice to accommodate repair and upgrades to the railroad’s infrastructure, but the railroad is meeting its full schedule with trains running on time. This long-awaited train service includes three round-trips per day: two from North Creek to the Saratoga Springs rail station on The Hudson Explorer and The New York Express; and one from North Creek to the Thurman station on The Merganser. The new passenger train service includes domed cars for panoramic scenic vistas, ski train trips, dining excursions and themed jaunts. The railway is operated for the county by Iowa Pacific Holdings, which runs railroads elsewhere in the U.S. and in England. The firm has committed to operate at least 100 round-trip passenger trains from May to October, a minimum of 30 ski trains and at least 50 dining excursions after they are established. For more information, visit online at or call (877) 726-7245.

Pole vaulters enjoy first-ever competition on L.G. beach By Thom Randall LAKE GEORGE — Joe Samaniuk of Clifton Park stood on the walkway beside Shepard Park Beach and watched fellow pole vaulter Jeff Farrington hurtle through the sky, flipping his body abruptly to barely clear a lofty bar before he plunged into an inflated mat on the shore of Lake George. “Very few events are this cool,” Samaniuk

Common ground from page 1 top choice for shared vision, according to Kate Fish, Executive Director of the Forum’s sponsoring agency, the Adirondack North Country Association. The forum again demonstrated that community leaders, year-round residents and local workers, land rights advocates, politicians and environmental advocates are able to reach consensus on common goals, Fish said Tuesday. “A really amazing thing happened, with consensus on both desirability and attainability of the ‘Sustainable Living’ scenario,” she said. “The experts were shocked about this level of consensus.” The attendees represented local, state and federal officials, small businesses, arts and culture groups, economic development and tourism advocates, environmentalists and non-profit organizations as well as unaffiliated citizens. The group reviewed six possible scenarios for the future of the Adirondack region. And of the six situations presented, one that emphasizes localized economies and thriving rural communities emerged as the undisputed top choice. Businessmen Dave Mason and Jim Herman, who worked together to bring affordable broadband to the Keene area, presented six scenarios, looking 20 years into the future. The concepts ranged from “Wild Park” — allowing the Park’s wilderness area to expand even further, to “Sustainable Liv-

Save the Date from page 1 “Save the Date” refers to July 24, “a date that will live in the storied history of New York’s civil rights movement.” State graphic designers even changed the red heart in the iconic “I Love NY” logo to a heart-shaped, six-color rainbow flag, which is the symbol for the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) community. “Every sector of New York’s travel and tourism industry will immediately benefit from the economic opportunities created by same-sex marriage. Our ‘Save the Date’ campaign will bring together couples and businesses to establish New York as a premier destination for same-sex weddings,” ESD President, CEO & Commissioner Kenneth Adams said in a prepared statement. “Starting July 24th, on the strength of its incredible travel destinations and the progressive leadership of Gov. Cuomo, New York will be well positioned to compete with neighboring states for critical tourism dollars to boost our economy.” To help same-sex couples plan their weddings, the I Love New York website now features a landing page with the basic legal details involved (“facts you need to know”), plus links to wedding and honeymoon deals and packages from hostelries in all 11 re-

said about Adirondack Aerial Assault competition as a crowd on a nearby slope cheered Farrington’s jump. “How many other sports events have this atmosphere?” Samaniuk continued, gesturing to the mountain view and a sailboat on Lake George. Adirondack Aerial Assault held Saturday, July 23 was a first-ever beach pole-vaulting event not only for Lake George, but for this region of upstate New York, said event coorganizer Don Paretta. He’s a pole vault coach at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. “The athletes absolutely loved it with the crowd so close to them — pole vaulters like to show off as it is,” he said with a smile. While Samaniuk and another Assault competitors were honing their vaulting skills to compete for the U.S. Olympic trials next year, Rob Smythe — a vaulter who competed for Paretta when he was a coach at Shenendehowa High School — was seeking to regain the skills he had as a teenager when he was state runner-up in the sport. “It’s nice to dust off the rust and see what I’ve still got,” Smythe said. “A lot of us like to have the opportunity to continue to jump.” Farrington, who was in Lake George camping for the weekend, was one of them. As he was having breakfast Saturday nearby at The Boardwalk, Farrington saw the vaulting bars being set up, and he walked

ing” to the creation of a single “Adirondack County.” Another focused on boosting tourism by mass marketing of Adirondack destinations and activities, as well items created in the Adirondacks. Another option, named the “Post-Big-Government” scenario, called for a future based on selfreliance and practicality driving local solutions. The Sustainable Life scenario envisions a renaissance in rural living transforming the Adirondack economy and allowing for steady population growth. Local food production is emphasized, as well as local energy production, green transportation, strong communities, full access to broadband telecommunications, arts and culture, and eco-tourism. Under this vision, living the sustainable life is a bigger draw than the pure wilderness experience. Now, Fish said, the Alliance will start figuring out how to make such a scenario a reality. Beginning in October, the group will be meeting in a series of five two-day workshops to discuss public policy changes, investment shifts, and creation of political and economic investments to prompt progress toward the shared goal, she said. The results will be shared at next year ’s Common Ground Alliance Forum. Among the political luminaries attending the Forum were state Sen. Betty Little; Steve Hunt, District Director for Congressman Bill Owens; and Dede Scozzafava, NYS Deputy Secretary of State for Local Government, and Roseanne Murphy, of the Empire State Development office.

over to see what was up. Within minutes, he’d borrowed vaulting shoes and a pole from event co-organizer Dennis Hogan, and he was jumping in the competition, Farrington recalled. “There’s nothing like this on the East Coast,” he said after sailing over the bar in an Open class event. Farrington injured himself in the warmups, but ended up recording his personal highest-ever jump anyway, Paretta said. “He gutted it out pretty good,” the coach said. Mandy Jenkins of Walkill, N.Y. watched Farrington and others catapult through the sky, minutes after she finished her own gravity-defying feats to the crowd’s gasps and cheers. Jenkins was state champion indoor

vaulter in 2002, then continued the sport at Mount St. Mary’s College in Maryland, achieving successive Northeast Conference champion titles. “This is an incredible place to vault,” she said looking at the crowd a few feet away. “There’s so much energy here.” Paretta offered a parallel thought. “Nobody in the crowd has ever seen anyone jump that high,” he said, noting that plans are already underway for next year ’s Aerial Assault at Lake George. “This was much more successful than we ever dreamed,” Paretta added, noting that while 45 vaulters competed Saturday, he and Hogan expect two to three times as many competitors in 2012.

gions of the state. See the page here: As of press time, only two properties in the Adirondack region were listed on the site: the High Peaks Resort and Mirror Lake Inn, both in Lake Placid. Yet, any hotel property may list their specials on the I Love New York website by contacting their county tourism office or I Love New York.

Tourism officials respond The Adirondack region relies heavily on tourism to drive its economic engine, and regional tourism officials are welcoming I Love New York’s latest marketing campaign. Michael Consuelo, acting executive director at the Lake George Regional Chamber of Commerce and Convention & Visitors Bureau, said his office was not directly informed about the state’s “Save the Date” campaign, but he embraces the opportunity to promote Warren County as a prime location for weddings and honeymoons regardless of the couples’ gender. “Lake George is a wonderful destination for all types of visitors,” Consuelo said. “We welcome everyone.” The Saranac Lake Area Chamber of Commerce was also not informed of the “Save the

Date” campaign, according to Executive Director Sylvie Nelson, but she said Saranac Lake is ready and willing to cater to samesex couples looking to get married and spend their honeymoons in the Adirondack Park. “As a destination, we’re a prime location for any kind of wedding,” Nelson said. “We are poised to help couples celebrate their new-found rights.” As an agency representing all regions of Essex County, the Regional Office of Sustainable Tourism (ROOST) in Lake Placid was well informed of I Love New York’s “Save the Date” campaign, according to ROOST Director of Communications Kim Rielly. Also home to the Lake Placid Convention & Visitors Bureau, ROOST is passing along wedding and honeymoon hotel specials to I Love New York to include on its website. Essex County business owners with specials should contact Carol Joannette at (518) 523-2445 x105 or by email at Rielly was impressed with Empire State Development’s push to draw same-sex tourists to New York. “We always appreciate I Love New York’s creativity to come up with new ways to showcase the state,” Rielly said. “The Adirondacks can only benefit from this campaign.”

News Briefs HHHN to Drop Aetna insurance

Police: Woman steals dog, flees

WARRENSBURG — Hudson Headwaters Health Network will no longer accept Aetna health insurance plans after Oct. 1 at its 13 health centers, HHHN officials announced this week After this date, patients at Hudson Headwaters with Aetna health insurance will be asked to pay from their own pocket. Medicare Advantage plans offered by Aetna will not be affected by this change. Hudson Headwaters’ patients who receive health insurance through work should check with their employers for options that may be available. These include switching health plans or arranging for Aetna to reimburse the patient directly. Hudson Headwaters founder John Rugge said his chain was ending its contractual relationship with Aetna because they were unwilling to reimburse health care services at the same rate paid by other major health insurers in the region. “Hudson Headwaters needs to receive payment that allows us to provide and maintain high quality care for our patients,” officials said. Patients can call the Hudson Headwaters’ patient support center, 761-0300, ext. 31400.

CHESTERTOWN — A local woman faces a variety of charges after she stole a dog from her daughter ’s home in Horicon, fled from police, involving them in a chase, then rammed a police car with her vehicle, according to the Warren County Sheriff ’s Office. Stephanie B. Wood, 57, of Chestertown was arrested July 25 and charged with second-degree reckless endangerment, seconddegree unlawful fleeing from law authorities, third-degree criminal mischief, criminal trespassing, petit larceny, speeding, and reckless driving, police said. Wood’s daughter called in a complaint of trespassing and stealing the dog, and Sheriff ’s officers responded to the home on Bean Road. Police located Wood on state Rte. 9 just north of the Rte. 28 intersection and halted her progress toward Warrensburg. Speaking with her beside the roadway, Wood fled in her vehicle and police pursued her 2002 Buick. Police were able to box her in on Main St., Warrensburg, and Wood rammed her car into one of the cruisers. Wood is set to reappear in Warrensburg Court and Horicon Town Court in August.

BOLTON LANDING — My father, Philip Brown, turned a young 100 years old on July 3. He has always maintained a childlike enjoyment and appreciation for life, although his 100 years has been anything but easy. I’d like to share a few excerpts from his life. •He was born on one of the hottest days on record in 1911 to a mother almost 50, fighting to survive his first few days of life. •When a toddler, his father deserted the family to follow a wealthy woman summering on Lake George. •At age 6, he truly became the man of the house when he survived the great flu epidemic of 1918, but he helped his mother bury his 17-year-old brother, young married sister and her baby girl. •He saw his mother adamantly refuse officials from taking him away from her (no adult male providing for them/no other public assistance in those days), and he cried when she gave him flour and water pancakes to take for his school lunch (he always added his mouth would water when others took out chocolate cake to eat). •He worked as a water boy for workers constructing the Sagamore Golf Course and went that extra distance and effort to get clean, clear and good cold water from a spring (instead of the close by water barrel with warm and stale water) and received an apple or orange as a tip. •He had to quit school in the eighth grade in order to support his mother (and shortly his grandmother) with finances for taxes and other necessities they couldn’t grow or raise. •Newly married in 1941, he paid off a $900 mortgage in one year and has never owned a single penny on it since. •He worked midnights at the Imperial factory in Glens Falls during WWII making napalm for the troops overseas, bearing conditions so hot that the workers passed out from the extreme heat and little, if any, protection from the chemicals being manufactured. Shortly before the end of the war, he was vomiting blood with other medical issues and the doctor told him to get out or he’d be dead in months. Of the five or six men he worked with at the factory, he was

the only one alive in a year ’s time; the doctor told him it was all the fresh air and sunshine from working in the garden and eating the vegetables. I can still hear the pride in his voice about that comment because he always loved his garden. •He rescued his Norwegian wolfhound from being drown in the middle of a pond at night by facing down a huge raccoon (perched on the dog’s head keep it submerged) with only his old long handled flashlight. He walloped it over the head and pulled the nearly drown dog to the shore and carried the large wet and limp body home and nursed it back to life. •He milked a cantankerous cow at the bottom of the pasture at nightfall when it didn’t come to the barn and then wrenched his ankle on a stone so badly he couldn’t walk, bringing the two pails of milk back to the house by crawling on his knees and placing one pail in front of him at a time. •He came to my rescue as a little girl after I had disturbed a nest of angry yellow jackets. My arms and legs were covered, and he used his bare hands to swipe them off me and carried me to the house to put on baking soda and water. •While working as caretaker on an estate, he fell two stories onto concrete and broke his back and yet walked to the ambulance. In his 50s at the time, he continued to work while he wore a back brace. •He used a scythe to cut brush while in his 70s. •While tilling the garden on his tractor in his 80s, even with failing eyesight, he would spot toads in the soil, stop the tractor, get off and put them out of harm’s way. My father may be small in stature, but the shadow his life has cast over the years is that of a giant, my hero. He has lived a life devoid of malice, greed, self-pity, cruelty, arrogance, or deceit. He has lived year after year, season after season, quietly, gently, proudly showing true strength, true virtue and greatness. During any serious discussion, he’d always add a bit of wisdom prefaced with ... “Mother always said ...” This one he told me a short while back: “Mother always said to do what’s right, even if it’s hard ... and in the end it will be all right.” I love you, Daddy. You embody the simplicity of the pureness of a soul. Thank you.
