Evelyn Wood seeks to take a different path
Evelyn Wood takes time off from her daily chores Friday to take her Arabian horse ‘Burner’ for a walk on her extended family’s 117-acre hillside farm off Elmer Wood Rd. in Thurman. Wood is running for Thurman Town Supervisor — the youngest candidate for the post in recent history. If elected, she’ll be the first woman to ever hold the office.
Young tourist Christopher Peterson, 6, gets buried Monday by his siblings (clockwise from left): Ann, 13, Tommy, 5, and John, 11 at Shepard Park Beach. The Peterson family, from Bethlehem Pa. are among the many thousands of visitors who have contributed to a robust tourist year in Lake George. Lake George officials have cited an 8 percent increase in sales tax for July in Warren County over last year. Lake George Town Supervisor Frank McCoy said Tuesday that local motels are not only full on the weekends, but on the weekdays too, a rarity in recent years.

By Thom Randall email@example.com THURMAN — Leading her Arabian horse “Burner” down a path on a hill where her family has lived for generations, Evelyn Wood offered her thoughts Friday about life in her beloved Thurman. “This is the best place to live and raise kids — I wouldn’t leave it,” she said. “My ancestors lived here, married here, worked and raised kids here — and they’re buried here.” Evelyn Wood, a 33-year-old mother of two youngsters, is the sole declared candidate to lead the Town of Thurman government — and she’s been visiting

Human bones dug up at site of accused killer’s former home DNA testing of remains under way By Thom Randall firstname.lastname@example.org MINERVA — State police investigators have dug up human remains at the former home site of Thomas A. Collard, who is accused of murdering his wife in 1980. State police are now awaiting results of an autopsy and DNA testing to see if the bones belong to June Collard who’s been missing since that year, state police authorities said. An autopsy was being conducted on the remains last week by the Albany Medical Center, and state police and prosecutors were awaiting the results, state Police Lt. Brent Davison said. “We are awaiting results, and as soon as we get them, we’ll be sending portions of the remains to a forensic identification center for DNA analysis,” he said. After six full days of digging at the site of the former home of Thomas Collard at 76 Wilson Road in Olmstedville, state police investigators unearthed bones the morning of Aug. 10 that were subsequently identified as human remains by an anthropologist, Davison said. State police have not yet revealed the number or type of bones, or exactly where they were dug up at the site. While police said femur bones or teeth would likely yield the best
DNA evidence, they declined to say whether they’d unearthed either type of specimen. A source close to the investigation said the bones were located behind where the Collard’s trailer once stood. Davison said a minimum of 12 state police investigators

Essex County District Attorney Kristy Sprague talks to reporters several weeks ago at the former homesite of accused killer Thomas A. Collard, where human remains were unearthed Aug. 10.
had been on home site since Aug. 4, searching for human remains, and the scene continued to be secured under 24-hour guard. Thomas Collard, 62, has been charged with second degree murder in the case, after he was questioned and arrested several weeks ago in Alabama. When questioned by state police investigators, Collard allegedly confessed to causing the death of June Collard, describing in detail how he had disposed of her body. Thomas Collard’s signed confession said June Collard had come to his home — they had been separated for some time — and after an argument, he punched her and she then fell through a door and hit her head against a hot water tank, authorities said. In his statement, Collard said he checked for signs of life, but found no pulse or breathing, and later dumped June’s body out a window into a hole that had been dug for a septic system, according to the confession, police said. Helping unearth the bones this last week were workers of of the Town of Minerva Highway Department, the state Department of Transportation and a few private contractors, including the Glenn Battease Excavating of Queensbury, officials said. The workers had dug up soil on the 1,200-squarefeet property where Thomas Collard lived at the time of June Collard’s disappearance in Nov. 1980. She was 30 years old at the time, and several of her children were left motherless. (Valley News Editor Matt Bosley contributed to this report.)

LAKE GEORGE • ADIRONDACK JOURNAL - 3
Village development moratorium left to expire By Thom Randall email@example.com LAKE GEORGE — A moratorium that effectively blocked development in Lake George Village will not be in force beginning this week, according to a decision reached Monday by the village board. The board decided to let their six-month moratorium on new sewer hook-ups expire Tuesday, citing the law was no longer needed. The town of Lake George had an identical moratorium in place — which also expired Tuesday — and the town board members will most likely not extend it, town supervisor Frank McCoy said Tuesday morning. The sewer hookup moratoriums were enacted in late winter, due to concern over the adequacy of the village sewer system — including the capacity of the sewer plant — which was reaching its maximum. The capacity of the village sewer plant, once pushed to the limit during summertime peak flows, is now adequate, village Mayor Robert Blais said. Blais said due to the town of Lake George’s recent discovery and capping of sewer line laterals under stateowned Battleground Park that carried clean groundwater and stormwater to the village sewer plant, the amount of water the plant processes daily has dropped substantially. Village Public Works
superintendent David Harrington said the sewage flow has decreased about 60,000 gallons per day. Blais said the village and town’s investigation into a pipe carrying sewage from state-owned Battleground Campground nearby, would continue. Even when the campground has been vacant, the pipes have carried a substantial flow of clear water, which Blais said indicates there is an illegal groundwater inflow into the pipes, or that the state is allowing their faucets to run illegally at the campground. Either way, the state must take responsibility and remedy the situation, he said, noting the state had previously denied responsibility for all the sewer pipes under Battleground Park. He said the state Department of Environmental Conservation has not responded to recent inquiries into the matter. McCoy said village and town officials were meeting with DEC officials Wednesday to discuss the sewer inflows. Blais said the village board, alongside the town, would continue to pursue investigations into illegal inflows of groundwater and stormwater, using a remote-controlled video camera designed to inspect sewer pipes. The sewer hookup moratorium was enacted in February, following concerns over not only the sewer plant capacity, but the sewer system’s integrity. A sewer break oc-
curred in July 2009 in front of Shepard Park beach that prompted the beach to be closed to the public while the beach was cleaned and renovated, and pipes were inspected for their durability, which was confirmed. The beach closure was extended for the rest of the summer due to continuing high levels of coliform bacteria, which village officials blamed on wildlife congregating on the beach, rather than the sewer spill, because after installing bird-repellent devices, the coliform counts dropped dramatically. Blais announced Monday routine coliform counts this summer show that the water at Shepard Park Beach is clean, well within state limits for bacteria. In other business Monday, the village board: • Approved the installation of six wooden bulletin boards around the village to hold tourism posters. The board members decided they would contain only information promoting Lake George, expressing concern about some materials circulating in the village offering discounts in Lake Placid. • Approved the erection of a large sign facing the lake that will promote the Lake George Jazz Weekend to boaters. The event sponsor, the Lake George Arts Project, has plans to have speakers this year direct the festival music toward the lake so boaters can enjoy the jazz performances. • Discussed options con-
cerning a hole in the Mannix yard at Helen Street near McGillis Street, which neighbors have said poses a safety hazard to children. Some time ago, the village installed a culvert running through various adjoining properties, but the Mannix property owners wouldn’t grant an easement, so the village left a gap on their property — between two culverts — that is about four feet deep and occasionally fills up with water. Blais said the owners refused to allow town employees on the property. • Discussed a proposal to build a landscaped median down the middle of state Route 9 at both the north and south ends of the village. Blais said many local residents want to see the green medians extend into the village to Mohican Street on the south side, and to the high school on the North side. Board members said they like the beautification concept, as long as vital parking spaces aren’t sacrificed. The town is applying for grant money and is working on the initiative with the state Department of Transportation. • Decided to advertise for a new chief operator for the village sewer plant. Reggie Burlingame is retiring, and George Knowles, who was selected as his replacement, is working part-time and can’t devote enough hours to become a certified plant engineer, Blais said, noting that Knowles is also due to retire soon. • Announced that a plan to
re-construct Beach Road and reconfigure the intersection at Canada Street into a pocket park will be presented to the public at 8:30 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 19, at the village hall. • Voiced concerns about “paper snaps,” or tissuewrapped pellets of gunpowder children have been buying and throwing on the village sidewalks to make a sharp noise. The debris from the items is quite difficult to clean up, board members said, and Blais suggested asking merchants to voluntarily cease selling them. • Praised village ClerkTreasurer Darlene Gunther for her arduous work preparing the village annual report. Mayor Blais also praised her for her financial management, noting that the village’s reserve funds had grown this year while the tax rate remained stable. “The village continues to be in excellent financial condition,” Blais said, praising Gunther for her expertise. • Heard from Blais that the village’s Thursday night fireworks shows are attracting record crowds, and the mayor has applied to the county bed-tax committee for a $25,000 subsidy for the aerial displays, because they draw visitors from a wide region. • Praised Public Works Superintendent Dave Harrington and his employees for keeping the town tidy and the infrastructure in good shape. Blais read a letter from a tourist citing how well the village was maintained.

Sex offender housing law approved for Lake George Village Law licenses and restricts motels, hotels By Thom Randall email@example.com LAKE GEORGE — The Village Board of Lake George passed a la Aug. 9 that limits the number of sex offenders that can live at once in a motel or hotel or boarding house to six, and requires the business to post a public notification that such individuals are staying on the premises. This law requires motels and hotels and rooming houses hosting sex offenders to obtain a license, costing $3,000 per year, from the town government. The law follows the towns of Warrensburg, Lake George, Queensbury and Lake Luzerne in passing such a law. The issue became a governmental concern months ago after a discovery that as many as 14 sex offenders were living simultaneously in the Best Inn motel in Queensbury, a situation that sparked public outcry. Area officials and citizens were concerned the traveling public should be aware of a potential threat to their security — particularly the safety of single females and children. These Warren County municipalities, one after another, passed the law earlier this year — with local officials citing the concern that sex offenders would be moving from the prohibited areas into their respective town. Those laws followed the legislation passed last year by the town of Colonie, a measure which has been criticized by the American Civil Liberties Union. While just months ago, village board members had expressed reservations about enacting such a law because it might prompt
expensive legal challenges, the board was silent as they passed the legislation. Accommodations hosting sex offenders have 30 days to obtain a license, or face a fine of $350. Mayor Robert Blais noted this spring very few village motels or hotels would likely qualify to house sex offenders anyway, due to other pre-existing laws that prevent them from living within set distances from churches, schools, parks and playgrounds which are scattered throughout the village.
Burned-out building to be razed In other business Monday, the Lake George Village Board approved a plan to demolish the burned-out shell of the former Mitchell Cohen dental office at 48 Amherst St. Although initially to be accomplished at taxpayer expense, the cost of the contracted demolition work would be recouped through a lien on the property, paid off when the land sells, Blais said. Cohen’s lawyer told Blais that Cohen has no money to pay for the demolition — Cohen’s insurance company is not paying for the fire claim, Blais said. He added the building needed to be razed, as vagrants have been seen occupying and exiting the building.
Parking patrol scolded for goofing off Blais announced that parking meter revenue has jumped in the past several weeks after he scolded the village crew of parking meter enforcers via a memo for their lackadaisical attitude. Blais said he recently noted the village’s six meter-minders and sev-
eral peace officers had written 2,400 tickets less this year than last year, and then he told them in a memo, “You must all be walking around with your eyes closed.” The warning came after Blais followed the meter-minders around and found them walking around in groups where no meters existed. Other board members said they’d seen the parking meter employees together lounging in village parks instead of individually patrolling the streets. The day after the warning, the number of tickets they wrote surged, Blais said.
Laws would limit picnic tables, displays The board tabled a law that would limit the number of tables and racks Lake George businesses could set out for designated sidewalk sale days, customarily during the village craft shows and on labor Day and Columbus Day weekends. A proposed law restricted the tables to one per business, but councilman Ray Perry said the number of tables should be according to the size of the storefront. Also, the law’s first draft called merchants to leave 5 feet of free space or more on sidewalks for pedestrians, and Perry suggested the law should allow 10 feet. The proposed law was tabled for redrafting as Perry proposed, and re-submission to another public hearing. The board also discussed a proposed companion law that allows the village planning board to determine what type of furnishings and lighting that restaurants, taverns and shops have outdoors, and prohibit the use of picnic tables. The law would also restrict the number of menu boards allowed. Blais said he’s received complaints about picnic tables being set outdoors in front of Canada Street businesses.
Smoking in parks to be discouraged The board enacted a change to the village property maintenance law, boosting fines from $100 to $200 flat fee to $250 for each day the violation exists. The village leaders also approved a NoSmoking mission statement and erection of “Smoke-Free Environment” signs to be placed in the village recreation center and Shepard Park to discourage smoking. Blais said a No Smoking policy was unenforceable under the law, but a mission statement for the village would be appropriate legally to back up the signage. “We need to alert the pubic that we support good health, and the use of tobacco products is a detriment to the health of our citizens,” he said.
Moonglow event to be revived Blais announced the state Department of Environmental Conservation has approved the use of Battleground Park for the village’s Moonglow event, set for 6-9 p.m. Sept. 25. Blais said he and councilman Perry are working to revive the traditional event after the former sponsors, the Adirondack Balloon Festival, gave it up several years ago. Blais noted the Moonglow event had been immensely popular, and drew many visitors to the village. This year ’s nighttime event would include five balloons, provided by SunKiss Ballooning, intermittently lit up internally. The event would be held concurrently with the International Antique & Classic Boat Regatta and a craft show event, organized by former village board member Marisa Muratori, complete with live musical entertainment.

This includes Maureen Sprague, Ed and Kathy Binder, Bertha LaVigne, Carson Parker,Virginia Pike, Arlene Ackley, Margery Parker and Ed and Alice Damp. The Alumni Association will meet at 7 p.m. Sept. 15 to critique this year ’s banquet and plan for 2011. The meeting is set for the Warrensburg High School library. Anyone who attended or graduated from WCS is welcome. Thanks go to the class of 1960 for joining the celebration and providing the entertainment. Also many thanks to the
Very few local citizens attended the Aug. 6 WCS school board meeting. I urge taxpayers to consider attending at least one board meeting for the 2010-2011 school year. After all, 70 percent of property owners’ taxes go towards operating the local school. Note the present teachers union contract will expire next June, and the contract negotiations will begin in September. If you have concerns about personnel expenditures of the school district, it is to your benefit to attend school board meetings and hear the progress of negotiations. The next school board meeting will be held Sept. 13.
Items needed for Basket Raffle The Warrensburg Chamber of Commerce is now seeking donations of goods and services for their annual gift basket raffle held in conjunction with the World’s Largest Garage Sale event in early October. Raffle Items and gift certificates are to be submitted, by local merchants, to the chamber no later than Sept. 27. Last year the chamber raffled off a basket full of about $500 worth of good and services during the weekend of the World’s Largest Garage Sale. The chamber holds the raffle to obtain visitors’ zip codes, to submit to Warren County for proof the event draws people from all over the nation. The list of zip codes helps justify the county’s support of the sale through occupancy tax contributions, money that goes to help support the sale. The raffle is free of charge to entrants, but requires an address. The chamber does not share this information with others, we’re told. Last year, a seasonal camper here won the basket. The family was very grateful to the chamber and said they appreciated the gift certificates to restaurants, markets and bed and breakfasts. Apparently they also really liked the Adirondack picture frame, and Adirondack socks. Businesses are asked to submit items and boost local commerce and help us make this an annual raffle. Be sure to attach your business card or rack card to be visible to participants. This is a great free advertising opportunity.
Talent sought for World’s Largest Sale stage Do you sing? Tell jokes or stories? Have a band? Would you like to perform Oct. 2 and 3 for the World’s Largest Garage Sale?

WARRENSBURG — Several pending retirements, approved Aug. 9 by the Warrensburg Central School Board are likely to accomplish two aims — benefit the retirees while offering savings to taxpayers, school officials said. The following retirement notices were accepted by the board: School District Treasurer Valerie Smith has opted to take the board’s offer of an early retirement, effective Aug. 7, based on an enhanced state-sponsored incentive. Retirements were also approved for business office secretary Hilda Vroman effective Aug. 31, head mechanic Dana Robichaud effective Aug. 27, and elementary teacher Trudi Egan effective July 15. The board also rescinded prior retirements for three teachers under the standard retirement arrangement and approved their retirement under the state option, for Robert Brown, Nancy Hill, Gerald Howe. The dual action allowed the three teachers to be credited with three additional years of service which boosts their retirement income, WCS superintendent of schools Tim Lawson said Monday. The positions of Valerie Smith and Hilda Vroman will be filled as administrative assistant positions and will be filled from Warren County’s civil service list of eligible applicants, he said. The salaries or Smith and Vroman’s replacements will be in the $30,000 range, a decrease of about half from the current $60,000 range. The teaching positions of Howe, Hill and Brown will not be filled, Lawson said, and their duties reassigned to other teachers. Egan’s teaching position will be replaced for the 2010-2011 school year. Jennifer Nissan and Janet Cousineau were both hired to fill elementary teacher assistant posts as of Sept. 1. Robichaud’s duties in supervising the school’s transportation will be reassigned within the bus garage staff, reaping a savings of 10,000 to $12,000, Lawson said. Total savings to the taxpayers on the personnel changes represent more than $80,000 in salaries, officials said.

burned with seven tons of hay. The next day, Aug. 15, 1910, hail, the size of large peas, fell on Bakers Mills and Sodom.
Restitution came too late After lying helpless for eight years with a broken back, Thomas Maloney, 49, died at the home of Mrs. Elizabeth Bowler in Glens Falls. Mr. Maloney was employed as a teamster by the Hudson River Water Power Co. during the construction of the company’s power house and dam at Spier Falls. He fell off his wagon and his back was broken. The company agreed to provide for him for the rest of his life, but after three years refused to continue to do so. A verdict of $10,000 he received last spring in state Supreme court against the company for the injuries is pending in the appellate division. He is survived by a widow, one son and three daughters.
Elevator crashed, bones smashed John Wright was painfully injured Aug. 16, 1910, in the Hadley mill by the falling of an elevator. Both ankles were dislocated and the right heel crushed. The injured man is now resting comfortably and his physician thinks he might fully recover. Wright has been employed at the mill for several years and is a valued employee.
Big storm leaves great damage The Rev. Stewart Fuller ’s barn and contents at Riverbank were burned during the thunderstorm the evening of Aug. 14, 1910. He had just put a new roof on the structure. Lightning struck Timothy Hurley’s house in Warrensburgh and in Senator Jim Emerson’s barn, knocked a horse over and killed Louis Albert Emerson’s dog, Jack up in the hay loft. Mrs. Adella Dodge’s house in Lewisville (River Street, Warrensburgh) was struck, also a tree in W.L. Smith’s door yard. A barn on the Simeon Hall farm in North Caldwell, owned by A.C. Emerson & Co., was burned with 20 tons of hay. A barn on the Stewart Fuller place in West Bolton was
DEC’s Lake George island trash cleanup is essential! To the editor: The Lake George Association is concerned about the decision made by the Department of Environmental Conservation to discontinue retrieving garbage from collection centers on the Lake George islands. We urge the DEC to reconsider this decision and ask local citizens who love Lake George to join us in finding a better solution. Expecting our natural resources to bear the burden of cost cutting is fiscally irresponsible. At the LGA, we believe that the cost of cleaning up this problem will be higher than preventing it from happening in the first place.

Lake George news Rapid progress has been made by contractor R.M. Booth in the construction of the new Fort William Henry Hotel, at the head of Lake George. Excavations have been completed and the laying of the concrete foundation walls is also accomplished. Contractor Booth intends to enclose the building before winter and will be able to do interior wood work during cold weather to be ready for occupancy next season. In another matter, about 100 Italians employed on the construction of the state road at Lake George, went on strike Aug. 17, 1910 because they claimed they had not been paid in six weeks. They returned to work the next day after a satisfactory explanation of the delay was made to them.
William Woodward dies at his home William F. Woodward, 63, died early Tuesday morning, Aug. 16, 1910 of brain fever. He had been a sufferer for weeks with what he supposed to be neuralgia and was unable to find relief. He was the son of Francis and Harriet Beswick Woodward and after the death of his father, who was killed by the attack of a furious bull, he owned and continued to live on the original Woodward homestead just north of the Warrensburgh-Chester toll gate. He was married in 1885 to Mrs. Melvina F. Shaw of Warrensburgh, who survives him. Woodward was employed as a carpenter and was engaged principally in moving buildings. (Note…The old Woodward homestead is still standing today in Pack Forest.)

deer. That kind of game will not be too tame after the hunting season starts. A.W. Lanfear of Warrensburgh is seeking a middle-aged woman to keep house for him on his small farm for reasonable wages. Mr. Collins of New York, who has a summer place, the Hermitage, at Brant Lake, lost a very valuable colt Aug. 20, 1910 of pneumonia. It was said to have been worth $10,000. Mr. Collins has a fortune invested in fine race horses. Clayton Weller of Riverbank lost one of his span of black colts. The animal had spinal meningitis. Jordan R. Waddell is building a new roof on his barn in Johnsburgh. Earl M. Waddell has gone to work at the William Waddell farm in Wevertown. Inez, the little daughter of Bert Bateman, broke her leg and Dr. J.L. Fuller of North Creek attended her. Clifford Johnson of Adirondack, who stepped on a nail and was confined to his house for a few days, is able to be out again. A son was born Aug. 15, 1910 in Johnsburgh to Mr. and Mrs. Howard Thomas. A daughter, Clara Matilda, was born Aug. 15, 1910 in Newcomb to Mr. and Mrs. Edward Morrisey. A son was born to Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Ingraham on Aug. 20, 1910 in North Thurman. The remains of Joseph LaRose, which were temporarily interred at North Creek, were brought to Johnsburgh Corners and placed beside his first wife who died in 1853. James F. Oliver, 66, died Aug. 8, 1910 at Schroon Lake. James W. Galusha, 65, of South Johnsburgh died Aug. 18, 1910. A widow and two sons, Clifford and Herbert, with whom he resided, survive. Mrs. Augustus Jones, of East Thurman, who fell while in the cellar of her home after a two-gallon crock of cream dropped and broke, thereby terribly cutting and bruising her face, is now much better.

Alternative solutions could result from a dialogue with lake users. The LGA has considerable experience on the lake and a deep understanding of boating, recreation and water quality. Given the opportunity to discuss the situation with the DEC, we could help find a solution that continues to protect Lake George and the water we use for drinking, swimming, fishing and boating. While the “carry in - carry out” policy is ideal in theory, trash finds its way into the lake regardless of policies. One isolated example: after Log Bay Day 2010, the LGA hauled away several large bags of trash. Even conscientious lake users need a convenient way to dispose of trash. It is considerably easier to empty trash at a central collection point than to clean up wind-blown garbage, especially when it has left an island and gone on to desecrate the lake. To allow trash to enter Lake George — after generations of exemplary stewardship by DEC staff — would indeed be shameful. C. Walter Lender Executive Director Lake George Association
New Stewart’s store belongs downtown To the editor: It’s important for everyone to understand that the opposition to relocating Stewart’s gas station onto the Stewart Farrar St. parcel owned by Hudson Headwaters Health Network has never been a risk to the finances of HHHN. Although HHHN’s chief has testified that he offered to donate the property to the town for a park — an offer that was rejected — HHHN has also testified it wants the money, reportedly $340,000, from the sale of the parcel in order to expand services. Regardless of this contradiction, it’s neither necessary nor desirable for the property to end up as a Stewart’s gas station in order for HHHN to get its money from the sale. Since last March there has been a very attractive proposal repeatedly made to Stewart’s, one that would result in Stewart’s owning and expanding onto the Potter ’s Diner lot, which was their first choice, while the Stewart Farrar St. parcel would convert to residential use harmonizing with the neighborhood. This would avoid all the severe problems of traffic congestion, pedestrian safety, runoff and groundwater pollution, parking, curb cuts, conflict with the town’s master plan, and incompatibility with the Historic District and character of the neighborhood that have been at issue. Without elaborating on the details of the proposed deal, Stewart’s, for their $340,000, would receive cash and property totaling more than $400,000, plus they would have a 10 percent larger area for their operations and would not have to build a new store — perhaps just refurbish the existing one. Their proposed store is actually smaller than the existing one. The proposed deal is one of good will; it’s generous and more than fair. It would be in everyone’s best interest if Stewart’s would accept the offer. Paul Gilchrist Diamond Point
From page 1 winter months, according to county Social Services director Sheila Weaver. The Open Door agency plans to purchase the former Glens Falls Home for women on Warren Street to provide shelter and meals to those in need. As soon as a month or two, Open Door may be acquiring the historic home, which has 26 bedrooms, director Bruce Hersey said. He noted higher-level sex offenders and arsonists will not be admitted to the shelter.
Shelter to require rules, chores for residents While housed in the motels and hotels in recent years, the homeless had televisions, and perhaps wi-fi, video games and even occasionally a swimming pool and other amenities. But at the Open Shelter they’re likely to have just a bed, clean sheets and meals, Hersey said. “There will be no electronic media or luxuries,” he said. More important, he said, those staying in the shelter will have structure to their lives, typically lacking in other places the homeless have been accommodated to date. The Open Door shelter is envisioned to include strict behavior rules, counseling, and help with job searches. With experienced Open Door management on site, shelter occupants will have direction and behavior boundaries, and will be expected to accomplish chores, Hersey said. Warren County Budget officer and Town of Warrensburg supervisor Kevin Geraghty said these changes were welcome. “Anytime we can get the homeless better facilities while saving taxpayers money, it’s a win-win situation for everybody,” he said. “The chores and house rules are a great idea to help the homeless structure their lives.” Hersey said the proposed shelter ’s program will include linking up their residents with the offerings of other human service agencies, to locate jobs, transportation and suitable homes, and to help solve clients’ issues, like substance abuse and personal financial management. “Each person in our shelter will have a case manager, and we’ll develop a plan for each one,“ he said. “We’ll tie people into programs whether it’s for substance abuse recovery or acquiring job skills or placements.” Weaver said she was happy about the Open Door initiative, championed by Glens Falls supervisor Bud Taylor. “It will definitely be a good collaboration,” she said. Hersey said the aim of the program would be to assist the homeless in becoming self-sufficient as soon as possible and leading productive lives. “We’ll be finding creative solutions to get the homeless jobs, to turn their lives around, and get them integrated back into the community.”

Events and activities in Thurman A family of Canadian geese have lately been strutting down Garnet Lake Road like they own it. The family started as two females and two males and they’ve been living at Pratt’s Pond. Each pair had about four offspring, and they’re now grown up and are stopping traffic, wandering on the local roads. They seem to stay together, so when you are traveling be very cautious over hills and around corners. Considering there are nine or more of these big birds leisurely strolling around our roads, be wary because at some point you may have to suddenly stop. Incidentally, a gripe was called in this week concerning motorists not stopping at the stop sign on the corner of River Road and Bowen Hill Road. Questions were called in asking if we have noise ordinances in our local towns. Another asked if Thurman will once again have a Code Enforcement Officer. You can call the Thurman Town Hall at 623-9649 for answers to these and other questions. Did anyone find any old pictures of Thurman barns or outbuildings that can be used in the John Thurman’s Historical Society 2011 calendar? Members of the group need them by Sept. 15. Call 623-9305 if you have items to be included. Loaning photographs for reproduction will be appreciated.
On a personal note The annual Wood family reunion will be held this Saturday, Aug. 21, at the home of Leila Wood, 536 Mud St., beginning at 12 p.m. Those attending are asked to bring a dish to pass. For details, call 623-4102. Val and Joe Samarra of Williamstown, Ind. were in the area visiting her mom Bert Wilde of River Road and also Joe’s parents in South Glens Falls. Note that we have a missing dog. A small black Labrador puppy has wandered away from a River Road home in Thurman, and its owners would like to locate him and return him to his happy home. Please call 623-2381 with any information on the puppy. Tonina and Mario Derosa and son Joseph of Astoria, and nephew Francesco Fortuna of Commack, Long Island spent a long weekend with her sister, Filomena Riviello on Garnet Lake Road. Charlotte Needham recently spent a week with her grandsons in Colchester, Vt. before returning to her Sky High Road home and ever more and larger garden vegetables to prepare for the winter months. Nancy and Terry Beadnell have had a very nice visitor for a while at their River Road home. Their grandson Brandon Beadnell, 7, son of Luke Beadnell, has enjoyed some of his summer vacation doing fun things with grandma and grandpa — going fishing and exploring — plus spending time with his dad. Brandon has had to return to Livermore, Maine to begin his school year. Jeff Grants is back at his South Johnsburg Road home after a recent kidney operation at the Glens Falls Hospital. He is recuperating, and doing a lot of “nothing” — so he says — as he is used to being very active. He expects to be back to speak at the Kenyon Town Methodist Church Sunday, Aug. 22, at 11 a.m. He also wants to thank everyone for the cards and prayers during this time.
Special days for Thurman residents Anniversaries celebrated this week are: Evelyn Wood and Andrew Hall, 10 years on Aug. 25, Jessie and Donovan Baker on Aug. 26, and Dick and Charlotte Needham on Aug. 27. A happy 18th year is wished to the Athol General Store and the Mannuci’s who opened their enterprise Aug. 22, 1992 on Mountain Road. Birthdays to remember this week are Joe Groff, Judy Shaw and Scott Mosher on Aug. 21, Tyler Springer on Aug. 22, Mel Groff on Aug. 24, Darlene Miner and Anne Rohe on Aug. 24,

Wood learned about public service early
From page 1
Despite her youth, Wood is not a newcomer to politics. Interested in the workings of government, she’s been attending town meetings regularly for more than a year. This interest in governance started many years ago. When her mother Diane Wood served on the town board, Evelyn routinely attended town board meetings, starting when she was in high school. Since former Town Supervisor Red Pitkin announced his resignation, Wood has been attending as many county legislative meetings as possible, she said. “I wanted to know all that was involved so if I’m elected I can make educated decisions and not be far behind the curve,” she said. People have observed that Wood is detail oriented. She said such a characteristic may help her lead government. “If you don’t pay attention to details, they can trip you up later,” she said. Wood said she is known for considering all aspects of issues in depth. “I believe you should look into all your options and weigh them carefully before you make decisions,” she said.
neighbors around town this last week with petitions for her candidacy. Wood decided to run following the resignation in July of the town’s Supervisor and Deputy Supervisor, after issues arose that sparked considerable controversy.

Wood seeks a new, collaborative approach Wood’s family’s lengthy history in town may give her a useful perspective in leading the town, unifying the various factions and tackling a variety of pressing issues, Wood said Friday. “I’m finding I have common ground with folks who’ve lived here forever, and those who are new to town as well,” she said. “When you are supervisor, you have to interact with all the folks, and not everybody’s going to agree with you all the time.” She added that if elected, she’s not going to take criticism personally. “At some point, a town supervisor will do something someone doesn’t like — you can’t make everyone happy all the time — but it’s all part of the job, she said. “I think I’ve got thick skin.”

If elected, she’ll be the first female supervisor to ever serve in the post, and certainly the youngest in recent history. “I was told I was nuts a couple of times,” she said, referring to her decision to run. “But experience is not necessarily tied to age.” Her youth, she said, might be an asset, allowing her to work more hours and with more diligence, and to devise and implement new, innovative approaches. So far, Wood has proven her persistence and work ethic as well as a fresh approach to her enterprises.

As the town’s Cemetery Superintendent, she’s led an effort to rehabilitate and restore the graveyards, and a lot has been accomplished. Folks have credited her for inspiring more people than ever to get involved in repairing and restoring headstones and cleaning up the cemeteries. Earlier this year, she and her cemetery committee held a first-ever gravestone restoration seminar featuring professional gravestone conservator Jonathan Appell. The event drew about two dozen people from a considerable distance, and fueled new enthusiasm for the local cemeteries and genealogy. This spring, Evelyn Wood launched a novel fundraiser to bankroll the event. For a donation, the cemetery committee set up a flock of pink plastic flamingos in a yard of a neighbor, who could return the favor to another friend or neighbor with another “flocking” — the committee members would move the flock, usually at night. The effort prompted a lot of fun as well as raising a record amount of contributions for the group. Folks around Thurman have suggested this kind of creative thinking would be an attribute in leading the town. Wood’s more routine qualifications for the Supervisor post include graduating from SUNY Plattsburgh with a Bachelor ’s Degree, and graduating from SUNY Adirondack with an Associate’s Degree in Humanities and Social Sciences. Also, she worked for a year or so operating a machine at SCA Tissue that made paper towels. Wood is a 1995 graduate of Warrensburg High School.
Wood seeks to lower taxes, involve citizens If elected, Wood said, her top priority would be the town budget, she said. “I want to make sure our finances are straight,” she said, noting that the town board has made considerable progress recently in this realm. Wood has served on the town’s Capital Planning Committee since March. The panel was commissioned to help decide what to do with about $500,000 of a surprise surplus of more than $800,000 that was discovered shortly after Pitkin took office. Wood said Friday she believes most all the $500,000 should be returned to taxpayers in the form of lowered taxes, so all the property owners of town can have full input in how the money might be spent, if it really needs to be. “It’s a good idea top start with a clean slate,” she said. Supervisor Red Pitkin resigned effective July 30, which meant petitions couldn’t be circulated only for independent candidacies, and not under the Republican or Democratic lines. The major parties will be meeting shortly after the Primary election to endorse candidates. Wood said she will likely be seeking the Republican nod, since she would like to represent that party.
Home and family continue to be important Between now and the Primary election this fall, she’ll undoubtedly be engaged in a Wood family tradition — tending to her garden and canning dozens of quarts of vegetables to provide her extended family savory food during the winter months, she said. She and her husband Andrew and other relatives, will be harvesting hundreds of bushels of potatoes, as well as corn, squash, peas, rhubarb, cucumbers and other vegetables they grow on their 3/4-acre garden plot, she said. Then she’ll be “putting up” or processing 100s of quarts of applesauce with her mother Diane, an annual routine. “We’re very family oriented up here,” she said.

By Jon Alexander email@example.com RAY BROOK — The Adirondack Park Agency is considering a proposal that could result in variance-seeking landowners rewarded for acts of environmental stewardship. During a recent discussion — that could someday lead to APA staff handling minor shoreline setback variance requests instead of the agency board — APA counsel John Banta said stewardship of shoreline vegetation should be a consideration during variance review. “There has never been a reward for stewardship,” Banta said. The controversial 2009 shoreline setback regulations bring the sideways, rearward or vertical expansion of pre-1973 structures under APA jurisdiction for the first time. APA chairman Curt Stiles wouldn’t call the stewardship consideration a trade-off or a compromise. Instead, he said it is an attempt for the agency to begin to look at the many “grey areas” that surround a specific variance request. “I don’t look at is as compromise. I look at it as an enlightened solution — it’s a better solution,” Stiles said. “The question is how do you meet the mutual objective? The applicant wants this. We want to protect the environment this way. There is something in-between sometimes that makes more sense.” Stiles added if the idea is implemented, the consideration given to vegetative stewardship could actually better serve the intent of shoreline setbacks. “Lots of times you look at variances as a binary decision: Yes or No,” he said. “What we believe, is that there is a time when you can create — with a variance — additional conditions that protect the environment further and compromise some of the standard perhaps, so it’s not so black-andwhite.” Researchers often blame vegetative clearing for increased levels of phosphorus and nitrogen in water bodies. The increased levels of the two compounds gives way to increased algae and reduced oxygen, dramatically reducing indigenous fish populations. Last year, local governments undertook an unsuccessful legal challenge of the new setback regulations. Of the nine counties that originally sued the APA for overstepping its statutory authority and expanding its own jurisdiction, four are now appealing the state court’s decision. Adirondack Local Government Review Board executive director Fred Monroe said he remains hopeful the appeal
will strike down the revised setback regulations. But he notes a streamlined process, including consideration of good property management, would be welcome. “I believe it’s non-jurisdictional because it has been for 35 years,” Monroe said. “But a simplified procedure with a trade-off versus the flow blown expensive hearings I think are reasonable to talk about.” Monroe and several commissioners said they would like to see statutory amendments that would allow the variance process to more closely mirror action taken by town zoning boards of appeal. Unlike the local process, commissioners are not directly involved in the public hearing process. APA officials tout the merits of the delegation of minor shoreline variance requests to staff as a means of streamlining the overall process and reducing the cost for both the agency and the applicant. Commissioners are expected to be presented with more detail of the proposal in September.
InBrief Chestertown’s Starbuck slated for history talk WILMINGTON — Chestertown resident and noted archeologist David Starbuck is scheduled to make a presentation soon in northern Essex County on his archeological digs in Lake George and Fort Edward for French and Indian War artifacts. The presentation, titled “Excavating the Past at Fort Edward and Fort William Henry, will be given at 7 p.m. Tuesday Aug. 24 at the federal Atmospheric Science Research Center ’s field station at 110 Marble Lane, off memorial Highway in Wilmington. His talk will detail the archaeological field schools Starbuck held for the past 20 years in conjunction with SUNY Adirondack, as well as excavated forts and encampments in Fort Edward and Lake George — home of the most extensive British encampments of the French and Indian War. Led by Starbuck, teams of experienced archeologists, volunteers and students have conducted excavations at Fort William Henry, Fort Edward, Rogers Island, the Lake George Battlefield Park and, most recently, at the site of a sutling house that sold supplies to the British army in the late 1750’s. Associate Professor of Anthropology at Plymouth State University, Starbuck has written and published many books and articles on the archaeology of the French and Indian War. University at Albany representatives said this week that Starbuck’s presentation will include some of the most exciting and unexpected discoveries of these archeological schools.

Former legislative leader sentenced for sex crimes ALBANY— Former Assemblyman George “Chris” Ortloff was was sentenced to more than 12 years in federal prison following his sentencing Aug. 12 in an Albany court for committing sex crimes. Once one of the most powerful Republican lawmakers in the North Country, Ortloff was arrested in 2008 after arranging what he believed was a sexual encounter with two pre-teen girls. The Lake Placid native and former state Assembly Assistant Minority Leader from 1986 to 2006 was caught in a sting at a Plattsburgh-area motel room in which he allegedly arranged a sexual encounter with two pre-teen girls Ortloff made the arrangements over the Internet with a woman whom Ortloff believed was the girls’ mother, although it was actually an undercover police investigator targeting pedophiles, authorities said. Also, prosecutors have cited evidence Ortloff had traded and possessed child pornography. Prior to his sentencing,
Ortloff claimed to be cured of his deviant behavior during his time to date behind bars, and he begged US district court Judge Thomas McAvoy for mercy. McAvoy characterized Ortloff ’s behavior as “unbelievable,” “painful,” and “scary.” In addition to a sentence of 12 and a half years, McAvoy fined Ortloff $50,000 and ordered he be monitored and supervised the remainder of his life. Several years ago, former governor George Pataki appointed the 20-year state Assembly veteran to a 19-person state parole board. Ortloff has also served as the chairman of the Clinton County Republican Committee, and at the time of his arrest, he sat on the board of trustees for the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake. Before his political career, he was a high-profile television anchor and author. Ortloff had worked for News Channel Five WPTZ as an anchor and served as chief of ceremonies and awards for the 1980 Olympic Games in Lake Placid.
Chris Ortloff While behind bars, Ortloff will continue to receive his state pension — totaling more than $3,000 per month. Ortloff ’s sentence was only slightly longer than the minimum mandated sentence of 12 years, authorities said, prompting some observers to question why he didn’t receive the maximum of 15 years. Law enforcement officials have said after his arrest, Ortloff cooperated with police, providing information that led to the arrest of two other alleged pedophiles.

Horicon Day draws large crowd, inspires community By Thom Randall firstname.lastname@example.org BRANT LAKE — Maureen Wilson and Bob Olson, members of the Horicon Day steering committee, sat writing Thank You notes Monday to those who contributed to the success of the event they helped launch. Held Saturday Aug. 7, it was the biggest, most ambitious community event held in Brant Lake for decades, and it drew a large crowd of people for family fun, Wilson said with a wide grin. “It was fantastic, over the top, more than any of us could possibly have dreamed for,” she said. “I am ecstatic!” Bob Olson offered similar thoughts. “It was successful beyond our wildest expectations,” he said, noting that there were steady crowds all day enjoying the games, car and boat show, food, vendors’ displays, exhibition softball game, fireworks and community booths. “All of the artisan exhibitors, 15 of them, said they were very happy with the crowds,” Olson added. he noted that various quilters and a woodworker were exhibitors, alongside Chuck Hilton with his vegetables and an educational booth sponsored by the Brant Lake Association. The latter booth, manned by Doug Paton and Dennis Doyle among others, taught about milfoil control. Hundreds of people enjoyed the fireworks show, Olson said. “Everybody agreed the fireworks were outstanding,” he said. “Horicon fire police directed traffic as swarms of peo-

ple left after the show.” He said there were long lines of people to get their hands on the Fire Company Ladies Auxiliary’s food. “Noticing they were running out of the hot dogs and hamburgers, they had to drive to Warrensburg to reload,” he said. Olson said the exhibition softball game between the North Warren High School players and a team of adults over 55 years old, provided an entertaining show for spectators. “The ‘Geriatric League’ provided spirited competition,” he said. ”We had two bleachers filled with spectators.” A classic boat and car exhibit, Olson said, was also popular. Matt Wood’s entry, an antique Model A Ford, won the trophy as most popular entry in the show, organized by Doug Wilson. Olson added the Girl and Boy scouts and Cub Scouts all had a good time, and the Horicon Fire Company reaped robust receipts in a coin drop they held. He said that a variety of games sponsored by Horicon Baptist Church, the Horicon Fire Company and the Girl Scouts kept families busy for hours with fun activities. Kevin Radford, pastor of Horicon Baptist, agreed. Games sponsored by the church included face painting, an obstacle course, a ball toss and mini-golf shot. The Girl Scouts held a coin toss and a greased-watermelon retrieval contest, North Warren students hosted a basketball toss, and the Friends of Horicon Library had duck-pond and monkeybridge games. “Every local community organization got behind the event to make it successful,” Radford said. “It was an incredible day — just amazing — and a huge success.” Maureen Wilson said she was thrilled about the outcome, plus she was intrigued to talk with many local people she’d never met before, as well as seeing people arriving from afar. “It was definitely biggest event around here in recent history,” she said.
Enjoying children’s activities including face-painting during Horicon Day, were Caleb and Cassidy Carpenter of Lake Luzerne, while others perused vendors’ wares or played children’s games — among the many offerings at the debut event held Aug. 7.

ADIRONDACK JOURNAL - 15
Geese go away, and don’t come back another day
espite rampant rumors that the state of New York had plans to implement a massive effort to reduce the state’s burgeoning population of Canada geese, the NYSDEC wants the public to know that there is no such plan. In an article in the New York Times, dated July 23, it was reported that the state intended to eliminate several hundred thousand geese, in an effort to bring the population under control. Information that was initially provided by the New York Times was later used by numerous media sources in follow-up articles, including one of my own. As a result, NYSDEC wildlife staffers have been forced to respond to a barrage of calls and e-mails about the false stories concerning efforts to eliminate Canada geese. In the village of Saranac Lake, there has been an ongoing battle to control Canada geese along the shorefront of Lake Flower for several years. A family of geese settled on the lake almost a decade ago, and over the years, their numbers continued to grow. The goose problem is most noticeable in and around the state boat launch in the center of the village, where the park’s extensive lawn has been regularly soiled with their droppings. It has been difficult to walk anywhere near the waterfront without steeping in goose poop, which is extremely slippery after a rain or in the morning dew. Numerous efforts to eradicate the geese have been attempted by both the village and the DEC, including a major goose roundup, netting and relocation campaign. The village also attempted to scare the birds away by placing life-size, wooden silhouettes of dogs along the shoreline. Neither of these methods had any affect on the geese or their droppings. The captured geese, which are known to imprint on a specific body of water, returned shortly after their capture and removal. And, they often could be found basking in the shadow of the large black, plywood silhouettes. Finally, after several years of struggling with the problem, the village has installed a simple strip of orange surveyor’s tape along the entire shoreline. The tape is strung between survey stakes, about a foot off the ground, and the previously mowed lawn is now left to grow about a foot high, in a small strip along
the shoreline. Following the installation of the tape, and the tall grass that grew up along the shoreline in just a few weeks, the boat launch and adjacent town park appears to be amazingly clear of goose poop. The grassy strip has become a proverbial ‘line in the sand.’ The geese simply won’t cross it. There are many other communities across the Adirondacks that may want to consider similar efforts. The cost is minimal and the public relations benefits are considerable with no trapping, no relocation and no shooting necessary to ensure that there is no goose poop underfoot.
A New Season Begins Although I am still stuck in the throes of a very productive fishing season, I’ve recently been getting an itch for the hunt. Two weeks ago, I went into hunting camp with a few friends, to buck up some firewood and take care of a few other items necessary for the upcoming season. While we got a lot of work done, the day ended early when the handle of the splitting maul broke, much to everyone’s relief. Our small cabin was relatively free of mice, and other pests, but it was nearly hidden by a huge field of overgrown ferns and berry bushes. In the past few weeks, I have put in several afternoons on the range, sharpening my skills with both bow and rifle. During this time-frame, I have also found a cool tint in the morning air. It’s probably just wishful thinking, but it is a tint just the same and it signals adventures to be had in the months to come. I’ve also been noticing that a few trees are beginning to turn, primarily along the lakeshore or high upon the peaks. Although it’s still far too soon to think about fall, it never hurts to dream
Although hunting season is a little over a month away, this nice bass taken by Owen Robinson of Philadelphia should serve as a reminder that fishing season is still very much in the present. and it’s always fun to prepare. The new season begins is less than six weeks. The realization comes with news that the 2010-2011 hunting, fishing, and trapping licenses and Deer Management Permits (DMPs) became available for purchase beginning Monday, Aug. 16. Licenses and permits can be purchased at any of the 1,500 license sales outlets statewide. Sporting licenses are also available via the internet at www.dec.ny.gov. Sporting licenses are valid beginning Oct. 1 through Sept. 30, 2011. Anglers should take note that the 2010 fishing license expires Sept. 30, a full two weeks before the close of trout season. Annually, the DEC issues 1.8 million sporting licenses annually through 1,500 license issuing agents. The department also coordinates a hunter education program with 3,300 volunteer hunter safety instructors providing nearly 40,000 certificates to students every year. Joe Hackett is a guide and sportsman residing in Ray Brook. Contact him at email@example.com.
