‘East Lake George’ village idea defeated in heavy vote turnout
Bolton’s folk music fest offers solid lineup of songwriters
By Thom Randall firstname.lastname@example.org QUEENSBURY — The proposition to create a new village, “East Lake George,” was defeated by a wide margin Aug. 26, with voters in the proposed new municipality rejecting it 189 to 370. The turnout of more than 564 voters — amongst about 750 property owners eligible to cast ballots — was considered very heavy by local officials. After helping count the paper ballots one by one, Queensbury supervisor Dan Stec sported a smile. He had opposed creating the village, which would have taken away both some lakefront property tax revenue from the town of Queensbury and authority over the municipal functions in the lakeside hamlets in North Queensbury. “Both sides of the issue aggressively put their positions

Village adds fireworks for Labor Day weekend LAKE GEORGE — The village government has planned a gala fireworks show Saturday, Sept. 4, to celebrate Labor Day weekend. The weekly shows, financed by the village of Lake George, ended last Thursday. Each week during the summer season, thousands of tourists and residents alike are drawn to the southern end of the lake to enjoy the 15-minute display. This summer, the largest crowds in recent years have been hosted by the village for these shows, officials have said. The aerial displays are designed by Alonzo Fireworks Co.; of Mechanicville. On Aug. 21, the vvillage conducted a survey of more than 750 spectators and nearly 90 percent were from outside Warren County, village officials said. The boat count in the lake exceeded 80 and the crowd was estimated at more than 5,000. This week’s show, added recently to the schedule, is being sponsored by the Lake George Steamboat Co., the Fort William Henry Corp., Surfside Resort, Shoreline Cruises, Village Mall and Captain Dick’s Crab Shack.

Problems with foreign workers’ housing, employment prompt forum LAKE GEORGE — Problems with housing and employment experienced by foreign workers with jobs in and around Lake George has prompted the village government to plan a forum next spring. The forum is to be held in conjunction with the International Educational Exchange, an agency in Maine that arranges temporary work visas. Representatives from the U.S. Department of State, state Department of Labor and the Social Security Administration are expected to participate in the forum, according to a press release issued by village Mayor Robert Blais. Set for May 3, the meeting
is anticipated to cover a variety of topics related to employment, accommodations, fair and timely pay, and other issues related to foreign students working in a variety of positions in various resort areas. For years, recurring problems have been experienced in Lake George with substandard housing and poor living conditions experienced by many workers. A village-sponsored agency intended to prevent and correct such problems was closed down last year after a decade of certifying housing for foreign workers was safe, adequate and reasonably priced. The agency, “Connections,” also han-
dled pay disputes and a wide variety of employment-related issues. Since this “Connections” agency closed down, dozens of problems have again been reported. Similar forums held in Myrtle Beach, Cape Cod, Virginia Beach and Ocean City, Md. have proven to be extremely useful, Blais said. Two years ago, the state Department of Labor hosted a seminar on employment regulations pertaining to foreign students that was attended by more than 50 employers, according to the mayor. “The benefits of having a number of foreign students willing to work in our area
from early spring to Columbus Day are extremely important,” Blais said. “All employers and owners of accommodations, big and small should take interest in this opportunity and plan to attend.”

From page 1 out there, and now we have a clear decision made by a tremendous turnout,” Stec said. “Creating a new village would have added a layer of government and it made a lot of people nervous. For now, this chapter is closed.” Paul Ryan, a Fort Ann resident and vice chairman of a village incorporation committee, wasn’t smiling after the vote count, which ended shortly after 10 p.m. Ryan and others have fought for more than five years for lower lakefront property taxes. Ryan has argued the small 4.5 mile area that would have incorporated small lakefront hamlets of the towns of Queensbury and Fort Ann paid 45 percent of Fort Ann’s budget and 24 percent of Queensbury’s — an unfair proportion. “As a group, we will stay vigilant,” Ryan said. “The town now knows we’ll stick up for ourselves and not blindly follow something that’s illegal.” Controversy over high assessments and high taxes weren’t the only issues pitting many of the lakefront residents against town officials. Queensbury and Fort Ann had both disputed the village incorporation petitions in three legal challenges — but they
SATURDAY September 4, 2010
were upheld in court. There were also disputes over who could vote in the special election — caused in part by state officials who had issued evolving opinions. At first, local officials presumed only property owners registered to vote locally were eligible. Several days ago, the state broadened that guideline to include most of the property owners, and Judge Robert Muller was present Thursday at the poll site — the North Queensbury firehouse — to review eligibility of prospective voters. Those seeking Muller ’s review hadn’t registered to vote by the Aug. 19 deadline, but now with the state’s subsequent broadening of voter criteria, thought they’d qualify. On Aug. 26, Muller approved the voting eligibility of 31 local residents who weren’t registered locally, after examining their proof of local property ownership. Stec said after the vote Queensbury government hadn’t been trying to take away the voice of the residents of the local lakefront hamlets, including Assembly Point and Cleverdale. Stec blamed the state for citing vague incorporation petition requirements, contradictory voting eligibility rules and the high lakefront assessments. “This was not shenanigans on our behalf,” he said of the town’s legal challenges. ”All we were doing was trying to follow the state’s rules.”
But Ryan said there had been a lot of needless miscommunication. After the vote, he said the vote itself had been a valuable experience for all. “Getting to this point was a big step,” he said. “Just the fact we’re having a vote here is a victory for us.” Stec said although opposing the village, the Queensbury board was sensitive to the concerns the lakefront hamlet residents had raised. “We know as a board there Queensbury town supervisor are issues we have to work Dan Stec and town clerk Darleen Dougher stack and count on,” he said. The vote required two sep- ballots Aug. 26 during tabulaarate affirmative tallies from tion of the vote on whether to Queensbury and Fort Ann establish a new village incorresidents, but the proposal porating lakefront hamlets of was defeated by both sets of Queensbury and Fort Ann into voters. In Fort Ann, the a new village. The proposal proposition was downed by a was defeated 189 to 370. 54-93 vote; among Queensbury residents, the proposition was defeated 135 to 277, plus five blank or voided ballots.

•100 Years Ago – Sept. & Aug., 1910• Home to die in his mother’s arms J. Stewart Russell, 37, of Troy, died Aug. 28, 1910 in Warrensburgh at the summer home of his mother, Mrs. John L. (Mary) Russell, after an illness of only 48 hours. He had arrived in town at the conclusion of his summer vacation in seemingly good health and fine spirits, but suffered a sudden attack of acute Bright’s (kidney) disease which proved fatal in only a few hours. Russell, a graduate of Williams College, had studied law in the office of King & King in Troy and in 1898 was admitted to the bar. At the time of his death he was a partner in the firm of Jones & Russell. Burial was in the family plot in the Warrensburgh Cemetery near his brother, Marcus D. Russell, 32, who in 1898 was the second soldier to die in the Spanish American War with Teddy Roosevelt’s Rough Riders, in Cuba. A large delegation from Troy made a trip to the funeral in a chartered railroad car. The group was served dinner at the Grand Army House (now the site of John Henry’s tavern). (Note: Captain John Luce Russell, a native of Warrensburgh, in 1865 built the Bonnie Brae Villa, a grand mansion, around a small standing house at the base of the mountain, behind what is today the Warrensburgh Post Office. It burned in 1980 under suspicious circumstances.)
Toddler has brush with death Some strychnine tablets, prescribed for Mrs. William McLaren of Lewisville (River St.) nearly caused the death of the woman’s little granddaughter, Irene, the one-year-old baby of Walter McLaren. The baby was taking a nap and the tablets were lying on a dresser near her bed and she was later found playing with them thinking they were candy. She was taken with convulsions. Three doctors were called and Dr. Griffin arrived first
Scouts’ expedition included helping injured cyclist The Boy Scouts of Troop 30 based in Chestertown apparently combined fun with a valuable learning experience as they planned and conducted an extended camping expedition recently at Lake Eaton State Park in the town of Long Lake. Passing up on the traditional Scout camping trip to Camp Wakpominee this year, they instead planned their own fiveday excursion. The boys, ranging in ages from 11 to 15, conducted their own programs, cooked their own food, and bicycled, canoed, hiked, and worked on their scouting skills. They were rewarded by the sound of loons at night and an escort of a bald eagle as they paddled. The scouts reported the high point of the trip was when they flew on float planes based at Heim’s Aero Service of Long Lake. Their camping excursion included an unexpected en-

with an emetic and stomach pump to dislodge the deadly dose. Dr. Goodman and Dr. Cunningham arrived soon after and a hard battle was fought to save the baby’s life. She was later sent to convalesce at her grandmother ’s home on Harrington Hill. Irene is the granddaughter of Alfred C. Stone.
Runaway at Riverside A team of horses owned by Charles Russell of Pottersville was left standing at Riverside on the night of Sept. 5, 1910, while Russell was assisting in loading a trunk into his wagon at Joseph LaPrairie’s. He had released the reins when the horses started suddenly, ran through an orchard on to the railway, thence up the track and finally landed over an embankment. The wagon was smashed and one of the horses had a leg broken in two places and had to be shot. All who know Mr. Russell regret the loss he has suffered.
Post Office robbed Burglars entered the Post Office on Maple Street in Corinth early on Sept. 13, 1910, blew open the safe with nitroglycerin and after securing about $300 worth of stamps and $100 in cash, they went down the main highway about a mile, stopped at the farm of Henry Clothier and helped themselves to his horse and wagon. Then they continued down the road and left the outfit just outside the village of Saratoga Springs, where it was found at daylight. It is believed that the thieves boarded a train and are now hundreds of miles away.

They assisted a young camper who had a serious bike accident near their campsites — the scouts from North Warren summoned an ambulance and administered first aid to the boy while they waited for it to arrive. The parents of the young cyclist thanked the scouts for their quick action in helping their son. The boys earned 19 merit badges during the camping trip. Among those attending were Jacob Hill, Christian VanNispen, David Richards, Matthew Moffit, Will Jennings, Justin Harpp, Trevor Stile, Andy Hanaburgh, Jacob Smit, Nick Hitchcock, and Matt Smith, along with Scoutmaster John Belline, Committee chairman Arnou Van Nispen, Chris Stiles Jerry Smit, and Joe Klewicki.

St. Cecilia’s teens seek to inspire other groups Last week an article in my column announced the youth of St. Cecilia’s Church was looking for work projects to help others in need. The response has been overwhelming, and at this time they can not take any more requests — the group has enough jobs to keep them busy for many months. Phyllis Welsh, the youth director at St. Cecilia’s, told me their teens would be happy to help another church get a group started to accomplish these other community-service projects that have been suggested.

Schumer seeks boost for state parks By Jon Alexander
vides the best “bang for the buck.” “Here in New York, we have the best state park system in the country — It’s well known,” he said. “And to close them made no sense.” He observed tourism is one of the largest industries in New York State and it accounts for 700,000 jobs and $40 billion in annual economic impact statewide. Schumer is also championing a $10 million bill that would create competitive matching grants for nationwide tourism-related infrastructure and marketing initiatives. He said the existence of state parks are vital in assuring the health of rural tourism-based economies — especially in the Adirondacks where large-scale industry isn’t allowed. Schumer offered his observations during his visits to the Lake Placid Beach House, the Wild Center and the Adirondack Museum, Aug. 27. During the visits, he touted the Travel Regional Partnership Act. Schumer is seeking to insert the parks funding proposal into the oil liability legislation that will seek repayment from British Petroleum for the cleanup costs after this year ’s spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
firstname.lastname@example.org LAKE GEORGE — U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer stated Aug. 27, he is lobbying for the release $900 million in federal oil drilling royalties to fund state parks throughout the nation. Earlier this year, Gov. David A. Paterson proposed shutting down dozens of state parks in order to save $11 million as the state grappled with a $9 billion deficit. Although the state lawmakers restored the disputed funding on the eve of Memorial Day weekend, Schumer said future state budget deficit projections look increasingly bad. “The New York state budget next year looks as if it’s in worse shape than this year,” he said. For years, the federal government has been accumulating the oil royalties, which are tagged for clean air and water initiative, Schumer said. About $400 million of the royalty fund is specifically designated for parks. Schumer continued by saying he believes funding public parks in states with floundering finances pro-

Essex County Jail on a charge of second-degree murder. On Aug. 10, state police unearthed the bones at 76 Wilson Road in Olmstedville, where the Collard trailer stood decades ago. Thomas Collard, 62,was charged with murder 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 nor 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. After June Collard’s disappearance in 1980, Thomas Collard told authorities he believed she had left town with another man. She was 30 years old at the time of her disappearance — under suspicious circumstances — which left several of her children motherless. (Valley News Editor Matt Bosley contributed to this report.)
Jared Howe, 14, of Pottersville waits for the starting signal before taking off for a few laps in the annual WCKM Charity GoCart Race held Aug. 18 at Adventure Racing in Queensbury. Jared captured first-place in the youth division. The charity event was raising money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and Jared and his mother Nicole Howe, as they have two relatives with the condition, sought to compete to demonstrate their support towards a cure. The two raced wearing ‘Team Noah’ T-shirts in honor of Noah Gath of Schroon Lake, Jared’s younger cousin. Incidentally, Nicole claims that she taught Jared how to navigate go-kart courses with championship expertise.

Youth football mass scrimmage set for Saturday
Warrensburg and Salem players compete during the 2009 Combine event. This year’s edition will be held Sunday at the Warrensburg Town recreation field, and will feature a punt, pass and kick contest.
WARRENSBURG — The Northern Adirondack Youth Football League will be holding its annual “Combine” event Sunday, Sept. 5, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Warrensburg Town Recreation Field on Sanford Street. The public is welcome to watch the action at this free event, a mass rotating scrimmage amongst seven teams. The Combine kicks off the league’s season and is a chance for all the teams to play together and put their athletic skills to the test. Players from Corinth, Fort Edward, Glens Falls, Lake George, Ticonderoga, Warrensburg and Whitehall will be participating. There are two divisions of tackle football, one squad fielding
players from 3rd and 4th grades and another with 5th and 6th grade players. The teams will be competing weekly this fall beginning Sept. 11. Each year the Combine event is hosted by one of the league’s teams. This gives that team’s program a chance to raise money by selling food and merchan-
dise at the event. Immediately after the scrimmages, there will be a punt, pass and kick competition for league members. Trophies will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each event for both of the divisions.

Other publications are far easier on the eyes.

Interim Thurman Supervisor Al Vasak watches Thurman Emergency Medical Services President Jim Desourdy sign a contract Aug. 17 with the town of Thurman for 2010 services. The contract had been held up since late last year, due to an ongoing dispute over the ambulance squad bookkeeping practices, their accumulated fund balance and their former low response rate to emergency calls. Squad officials had argued that their finances were straight, but town officials wanted more proof — a dispute that was a factor in the resignation of the town Supervisor and a board member. The signature on the contract approved $33,468 for the squad, payment for a full year’s services minus a sum spent on attorney's fees in negotiating the dispute. Photo by Thom Randall

Plane From page 1 Baker, a former town supervisor of Warrensburg, said 40 remote lakes were once open to seaplanes prior to 1972, when the State Land Master Plan was implemented, banning the use of motorized vehicles — including seaplanes — on lands classified as Wilderness, Primitive, or Canoe. “The DEC and Adirondack Park Agency have said, ‘you able-bodied people can still walk in and enjoy those lakes,’ but the only means the disabled had, they took that away from them,” said Baker. “That’s discrimination.” All six plaintiffs in the case are classified as qualified disabled persons under the ADA, the suit says, and all have served in the military. Baker said the suit was filed mainly with disabled veterans in mind, including those returning from recent service in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Music From page 1 following for her thoughtful compositions which have primarily folk roots, but include an edge of country and jazz influence. On stage at noon is Dan Berggren, an acclaimed Adirondack troubadour who sings about life growing up in the rural Adirondacks. His keen observations, depicting life’s substance, are known to resonate with his audience. Scheduled at both 1 and 5 p.m. is Saratoga Faire, a group whose expertise spans Celtic, folk, Cajun and Elizabethan music as

“Our veterans deserve a lot more than they’re getting,” Baker continued. “There shouldn’t be a square foot of the United States off limits to these special people, but they’ve done it.” The lawsuit names APA chairman Curt Stiles, DEC commissioner Pete Grannis, and Gov. David A. Paterson as defendants. It seeks an injunction against state regulation of aircraft operations within the Adirondack Park and seeks payment of legal fees. Controversy surrounding the use of float planes on Adirondack lakes was evident in recent discussions within the DEC and APA regarding the Wilderness classification of Lows Lake, a man-made reservoir 10 miles southwest of Tupper Lake. In April 2009, after two years of debate between preservationist groups, seaplane operators, and officials from the DEC and APA, the two agencies agreed to phase out float planes from the lake after 2011, claiming their use violated the Master Plan. The decision was made over the objections of many area residents and local officials.
Baker said Lows Lake is not among the 40 on his list, however, and the lawsuit makes no mention of Lows Lake. DEC spokeswoman Maureen Wren said the agency would not comment on the pending litigation. APA spokesman Keith McKeever also declined comment.
well as Old Songs from rural America — from high-energy instrumentals to introspective ballads. At 2 p.m. is Peggy Lynn, well-known in the region for her heartfelt songs focusing on social justice. At 4 p.m., Berggren and Lynn will team up for a set of duets. Event organizer Cindy Farbaniec said year after year, the event has grown as more and more residents and visitors have become acquainted with it. “What is more beautiful than sitting in a park and looking out over the lake and seeing the mountains beyond, while listening to folk music,” she said. “The festival provides
just a beautiful day — it’s always a marvelous conclusion to summer.” She noted with the recreational opportunities provided at the scenic park, children can have fun, while adults concentrate on the music. Adults can also enjoy the offerings of Bolton’s annual Arts & Crafts Festival, which is held simultaneously at the northern, streetside end of the park. The event is scheduled rain or shine. The bad-weather venue is the Bolton Town Hall, which has good acoustics, she said, adding why the folk music presented is perfect for the lovely setting. “It’s the lyrical songs about the simple things in life that often hold the most meaning,” she said, noting particularly Berggren’s glimpses of life in the Adirondacks. “ I can’t leave a Berggren concert without experiencing singing in my soul.“
Service You Want & Deserve. Walk In
‘Reasonable modifications’ New revisions to the ADA that became effective July 23, could be a key element in the access lawsuit. The amendments require state and local government programs to “make reasonable modifications in their policies” to allow access to individuals with disabilities through the use of “other power-driven mobility devices,” including those powered by a fuel-driven engine, so long as such modifications do not violate “legitimate safety requirements” or pose a “substantial risk of serious harm” to natural or cultural resources in the immediate area. The plaintiffs are being represented by attorney Matt Norfolk of Lake Placid. “We just want to be able to have our day
in court to say, ‘What are the impacts of float planes compared with what’s already being allowed?’” Norfolk said. Allowing people with disabilities the use of float planes to access the remote lakes and surrounding regions would not “fundamentally alter” the way wilderness lands are currently being utilized, Norfolk said, claiming state agencies allow the unnecessary use of helicopters and other motorized vehicles to transport supplies and researchers into some remote wilderness areas. The complaint also claims the re-utilization of float planes will have less of an impact than “the tens of thousands of hikers and campers that annually continue to devastate those lands already classified as Wilderness.” “The only thing that the preservationists and the Park Agency have complained about is the noise of a seaplane taking off,” Baker said, noting the planes make very little noise when landing. “It’s just 60 to 90 seconds of noise when the plane takes off, and then it’s gone.”

WARRENSBURG Burgher soccer team ready for breakout season WARRENSBURG — Warrensburg High School’s boys soccer program is now under construction, and sports observers have solid prospects for the upcoming season. Only five years old, the Burgher varsity soccer team competes in the aggressive, skilled Adirondack League. Despite losing the majority of the games since their inauguration, the team is now poised to make their mark. Each year, more students have joined the squad, and this year’s crew has the largest number of experienced seniors ever — only a few graduated in 2009. In 2009, despite finishing with only a 1-15 record, the team proved their potential. That one win was an early-season game against the experienced, talented North Warren squad, which has enjoyed considerable success despite the school’s modest size. The two teams’ next mutual matchup was lost by a shot made within the final 11 seconds — and several other games in 2009 were excruciatingly close. This year, there’s a group of veteran players on the Burgher team who’ve been sharpening their skills and gaining experience through five long years. Leading the returnees are top offensive threat Ryan “Bigfoot” Belden, and Sean Young, a fast player with a strong shot, as well as Jeff Bentham, Justin Baird, David Goucher, Dan Cobb, Masyn Morey, and two standouts with experience as goalie, Dan Cobb and Aaron Seeley. Two others represent a threat to opponents — Chris Robinson, who coach Brian Lemery said is a “hard-nosed” defensive player

that can shut down other teams’ top threats; and Tyler McKinney, who has a remarkable surprise in store for other Adirondack League teams. In tossing the ball into play, McKinney often accomplishes an acrobatic “flip-throw” which resembles a handspring that launches the ball, and the feat can put opponents off-balance. The deep roster of Burgher seniors means they’ll likely be very competitive, particularly considering most of their opponents in the league have experienced substantial losses this year due to graduation.
“We’re hoping to take advantage of other teams losing top players,” Lemery said. “We’ll be seeking out a few more wins this year.” Aiding this momentum will be the robust enthusiasm the team has been exhibiting in practice, Lemery said, noting they play with confidence despite the program’s prior season records. “Our kids really enjoy the sport, and they know they’ve got nothing to lose,” he said, noting the roster’s considerable depth. “Our seniors know it’s now or never, and they want to go out on a high note,” he said.

WARRENSBURG Burghers to toughen up mentally for 2010 WARRENSBURG — Six years ago, the Warrensburg football team soared past expectations and fought all the way to the state championship semifinals, a first-ever for the school. Since then, the football program has endured some frustrating seasons, despite a lot of talented athletes on their roster. Last year ’s record was a disappointing 2-7 tally for a team that had a lot of potential. During the past two years, the team was notorious for its brilliant plays and drives, stymied by some unexpected turnover and shortfall. The team’s actions routinely whipsawed Burgher fans’ emotions from ecstasy to agony in a matter of seconds. “Our prior teams had a lot of good stuff, but they’d blow games, and they made a ton of mistakes — they’d fall apart when things started going bad,” coach Mike Leonbruno said. “This year, we’re trying to toughen up mentally — We’ll be pushing the players to their limits, past where they think can’t go any farther.” Indeed, the 2010 year might usher in a comeback for the Burghers, considering the players’ varied talents and the enthusiasm among the players, WCS coaches said. “This season’s players are positive, committed, and they want to work,” Leonbruno said. “But everybody’s new, and we’re waiting to see what we’ve got.” Among the likely standouts will be junior Jeremy Barber, a fullback/linebacker who’s the Burghers’ main attacker and has been named a team captain, Leonbruno said. “Jeremy’s a strong kid, a mood-setter,” he said. There’s Ike Curtis, an experienced senior quarterback and defensive back; junior Lucas Nelson, a running back, receiver and safety; and junior Hunter Werner, a talented receiver and outside linebacker. Whether this talented offense will have time to make their plays is a concern, however, as the offensive line is all new, except one returning player, Adam Langworthy. Leonbruno said he’d be looking to Langworthy for leadership — to men-

tor the rookies that will be blocking and protecting the backfield. Apparently part of the strategy in toughening up the defense is the move of Mark Trapasso from Special Teams coach to Defensive Coach. Trapasso’s known for setting high standards for the hard-working, successful Burgher wrestling team. Leonbruno said they’d be rebuilding the team’s defense around the Burgher linebackers: Jeremy Barber, Calvin Du-
ell, Zack Baer, Hunter Werner, Nolan Maltbie and Charlie Giknis. Baer, Barber, and Giknis are experienced wrestlers, the coach said, noting his confidence in them. “This is the best attitude team since I’ve been here,” said three-year coach Leonbruno, who is a star player for the semi-pro Glens Falls Greenjackets, and is considered one of the top quarterbacks in the NAFL.

NORTH WARREN Cougars seek to recapture the glory Another asset of the 2010 team, is the players are multitalented, Humiston said. “Our team has a lot of interchangeability,” he said. “Most all of them can play in a lot of different positions, and we have quite a few ‘team players.’” Taking a break from barking orders to soccer players on the practice field, Humiston talked of the season’s prospects. “We look pretty good,” he said. “We’ll be decent — We can compete every night, and we’ll be looking to do some damage in Sectionals.”

CHESTERTOWN — John Remington and Jeff Lemelson, teammates on North Warren’s championship 2007 soccer team, recently stood on the sidelines and watched their 2010 counterparts practice. “Stay with it, Joe,” Lemelson yelled. “You’ve got to push players to get them to perform,” Remington explained. In recent years, the North Warren soccer team has performed remarkably well, despite the school’s small enrollment — then in 2009, the team fell short of their goals. But this year, having lost only two 2009 seniors to gradu-
ation, the Cougars have a majority of their battle-scarred players back. Among the standout returnees is top scorer Garth Griffen, a center-midfielder and striker; and Kristian Seeley, a junior who’s been playing varsity for three years. Also, there’s Benn Frasier, who is both big and strong. Coach Jason Humiston, responsible for building North Warren’s outstanding soccer program, said he’ll be counting on Frasier for leadership this year. “We have a lot of seniors ready to step up,” he said. “Also, we are solid on defense,” he said.

NORTH WARREN With experience and depth, NWCS Field Hockey prompts high hopes CHESTERTOWN — The North Warren field hockey team is in the middle of a revival, and local sports enthusiasts expect that trend to continue this year. As North Warren field hockey coach Lynn Lewis surveyed her players on the field, she commented that prospects are quite good for this new team. Lewis has no less than 27 players enrolled in the program this fall, which means North Warren will have a junior varsity team as well as its varsity squad this year. And that’s a healthy number for a school with as small an enrollment as North Warren. Not having a separate JV team last year, however, offered a big advantage for this year ’s varsity team. A large group of players, regardless of age, received a great deal of experience in the aggressive, fast-paced varsity play, Lewis said. “All season long, we rotated the younger girls in, and they got valuable playing time,” she said. So despite losing the talented group of 2009 players that included Sarah Erikson,
Laura Fahey, Jenna Remington, Kelsey Hamblin and Rachel Kenney — most all of whom were Adirondack League All Star honorable mention winners — the new 2010 team should compete at least as well, Lewis said. Leading the new lineup are Kiera Warner, a top scorer from last year, Margo Broderick on defense and Annie Bennett at midfield. Lewis said she was going to pay a lot of attention to improving the offense, because scoring was relatively weak in 2009, despite all the
talent. “Our big thing this year will be to work on scoring goals,” she said. The offense will be boosted by the team’s chemistry, which is developing well in pre-season practice, she said. “The girls get along well on and off the field — they know each other well,” she said. “We’ll have a pretty strong team this year!” Assistant coach Lori Lewis, her sister, agreed. ”We’ve got high hopes,” she said.

BOLTON LANDING Bolton soccer team determined to reclaim 2009’s top honors big hurdle to overcome,” he said. “The kids need to develop very quickly if we’re going to be competitive in the league.” Roca’s discomfort over the season’s prospects may subside in the coming weeks, considering the players’ collective attributes. “This is one of the hardest-working teams I’ve ever had,” Roca said. “Their work in practice is phenomenal. They witnessed success last year, and they want to follow in the steps of the seniors who graduated — they want to share the same experience, and they know it takes a lot of work.”

BOLTON LANDING — While the Bolton soccer teams always enjoyed a measure of success, the 2009 team — under the helm of coach Francesco Roca — reached new heights for the school. Although it was their first season playing against teams in the well-established and highly competitive Adirondack League, the 2009 Bolton boys soccer team fought all the way to Section II Class D finals, where they lost in overtime to Northville. In the process, 2009 Bolton soccer standout Harry Caldwell, the area’s leading scorer, was named Most Valuable

Last year as a rookie, Vreudge scored the two — and only — goals in a win against Bolton, which ended up going to the Sectional finals. “Mason is really shifty and he has a big foot,” White said. “He was great as a freshman, but he’s now bigger and stronger.” White also has high expectations for his center midfielders, cophomore Carson Lambert and senior Pete Valenti. Lambert has one year of experience, and White said he’s a good passer who takes decent shots. Valenti, who played all over the field last year, has an exceptional shot and slick passing, White said. “Carson and Pete work together well,” he said. Tending the goal will be

Ryan Moll, a junior, whose 6’4” height and athleticism should allow him to retrieve opponents shots, White said. “Ryan can boot the ball and he’s pretty aggressive,” he said. “We’ll be working on developing his hands.” The defense will include Gavin Garry, who moved from the inside to a role as central defender. White said he’s looking for Garry to mentor the younger players. Four of the younger players are apparently going to be starters, and they’re pushing the older players to do their best, White said. “There are no bad feelings about the younger guys starting,” he said. “The
chemistry on the team is big this year, and everyone’s getting along.” The group really enjoys the sport, works hard in practice, and 18 Warrior players attended the weeklong soccer camp at St. Lawrence University in July. Brian Stoya, a Lake George sophomore, was awarded most improved player — exemplifying the Warriors’ work ethic. “This is perhaps the most focused group I’ve ever had,” White said. “I’m excited about the team — it’s a fun group to be around.”

LAKE GEORGE — For years, the Lake George soccer team has been a dominant force in the Adirondack League. Two years ago, the squad careened through the season on a 19-game winning streak, obliterating several school records on their way to a Class CC Section II title. Last year was a frustrating season for veteran coach Blake White. Despite a good roster of returning talent, the team played hard and smart, but often couldn’t snag the goals that were within reach. In many games they outshot their opponents by a wide margin, but lost the matchups. This team, however, won the Western Division of the Adirondack League, and tallied a 10-9 record overall. The graduation of the 2009 seniors meant the loss of goalie Cameron Dorman and 12 other talented players, White said. For 2010, a mere three veteran players are returning — one junior and two sophomores, he said. “We’ve got a whole new crew,” White said. “But after two nights of practice, it looks like we definitely have

LAKE GEORGE Loaded with talent, Warrior soccer team is seeking another championship the sport, he said. “The girls have been playing together for so long — they enjoy being around one another — they’re very close as a team,” he said, noting their work ethic. “The players arrive to practice 25 minutes early with their cleats on — They’re a very motivated group.” The team has remarkable depth for 2010, considering its wealth of veterans, including All-Star talent. “Our players are very versatile, and our depth is huge,” Gordon said. “We can pull anyone off the bench and not lose a beat on the field.” Their dedication to soccer has prompted them to play sport whenever they can off-season — indoor or outdoor, pickup ball or travel-team, he said. The entire team attended soccer camp this summer, which both honed their skills and boosted that team chemistry. “We’ve got a very motivated group, and we are looking to be competitive,” Gordon said.

LAKE GEORGE — Girls soccer teams in the Adirondack League this year had better prepare for a tough opponent in Lake George. Not only do they have an enviable championship tradition, but their 2009 team, which won the Adirondack League crown, happens to be returning all their starters, coach Joel Gordon said. The team prevailed for their third successive year in the Adirondack League, which is becoming more and more competitive, Gordon said. “Winning the league, 2009 was a good year, but we suffered our first loss in the league which gets better every year,” he said. The team had a 10-6-1 record, which attests to their tough nonleague schedule that helps the girls hone their skills. The returning starters happen to be sophomores, which speaks of the youth of the team. They’re augmented by three experienced seniors.

WARRENSBURG Burghers strive to uphold local tradition al, sectional and Adirondack League championships. In 2001, the team fought all the way to the State Championship finals; and two years ago, they won the Adirondack League and Class C Section II championships. That’s not all. This past year, one of the team’s stars, Abby Roth, received a scholarship to play Division I field hockey, a relatively rare accomplishment regionally. Part of the annual tradition is for the team to adopt a nickname that captures their character. Last year’s squad was called “Bad to the Bone,” and this year’s is “Hurricane,” which not only represents the level of energy the group seeks to approach in their play, but also speaks of this year’s “clean sweep” of the substantially new squad. Gone are a core group that were on the stellar prior squads — Juliette Needham, The 2010 Warrensburg varsity field hockey team includes senior players (left to right): Bianca Fuller, Hayley Corriea, Holly Kayce Duell, Molly-Kate Webster, Kelsey Schomacher, Camie Eppedico, Kelsey Williams, Gheen, Taylor and Whitney Galusha, Lindsay Wood,and Katelyn Kuklinski.

Bump said the 2010 squad, which has already demonstrated considerable improvement during the first several days of practice, appears to have the determination to live up to the Burgher legacy. “If the players all discover their strengths and weaknesses and work on them, they can achieve any goal they seek,” she said. “They have an opportunity for a dream season.” During a recent practic, Bump yelled instructions to the players as they set off for a half-mile run in the early morning fog. “Pair off and talk as you run — find out three things you didn’t know before about your partner,” she said. Bump watched them disappear into the grey mist, and said the players were developing team chemistry. “If they play like their chattering now, we’ll go far this year,” she said.

In rebuilding stage, WCS Volleyball revival eyed WARRENSBURG — Warrensburg High School Volleyball coach Stephanie Gordon stood at the side of the gymnasium, watching her players run dozens of laps from one baseline to another. “Ladies, push it now, you can go faster than that,” she yelled as the perspiring players forced themselves to finish the drill. Gordon said Thursday she’s on a mission to resurrect the volleyball program which has been at the bottom of the league for years now, and make it competitive. In the mid-1990s, the Warrensburg volleyball team was for several years a top contender for the Adirondack League title, then it fell into a prolonged slump. Several months ago, the volleyball program was almost scrapped in school district budget cuts. The 2009 team lost all its matches, but the 0-12 or so record doesn’t discourage Gordon. “They are just numbers,” she said noting her 2009 team had some glory moments. “We won some awesome individual games last year, and we’re working now on improving the program.” Gordon is determined to see the program thrive — and this year, she said, there’s a core group of players that can spark a turnaround. Setter Chanel Barboza, middle hitters Kirsten Morehouse and Ashlee Leary and outside hitter Candace Riddle will be keeping the play competitive, she said. “These players have a lot of dedication and teamwork,” she said. During the past two years, the team has been performing a series of drills that have boosted their ball-handling instincts and sharpened their basic skills and form, according to assistant coach Jessica Ryan, who recently played college volleyball at Mount St.

NORTH WARREN North Warren runners may set new school records this season State championship meet, and Cassie Maday went to the states year before last — also as a freshman — although an injury prevented her from competing in 2009. Also on the team are sophomore Mallory Wolf, a 2007 league All-Star, and senior Tori Mardis, who is equally talented, McCann said. “This is the best girls team we’ve ever had, and we’ve had some great ones over the years,” McCann said. The boys squad, although smaller with seven runners, also has substantial potential. In past years, boys team has logged its share of successes, winning consecutive Adirondack League championships from 2005 through 2007, and a Sectional title in 2007. That latter year, the girls came in second in the league. This year has equal prospects, considering the talent on the team. There’s senior Alex Underwood, who McCann said has an excellent chance at the state meet, and classmate John Gordon, who also has top potential, considering his six years’ running experience. Newcomers on the boys team who look promising include Joe Strauss and Ian Underwood, McCann said. “The teams are loaded with talent, and each runner has an opportunity to rise to the top,” he said, while the runners took off in a sprint in front of their school. “I can’t say who the top five on either team will be this season,” McCann said with a smile. “We’ve got some real talent, and we’re looking for a breakout year.”

CHESTERTOWN — North Warren High School’s crosscountry program is remarkable, considering their accomplishments despite the school’s small enrollment. Their cross-country runners have racked up one title after another over the years, and 2010 will likely follow suit. Coach Bernie McCann said his runners might not only live
up to the legend, but may surpass accomplishments of the past. Last year, the North Warren girls squad won the Adirondack League, and this year, their lineup of 11 runners is stronger than ever, McCann noted. Sophomore Megan Erikson qualified last year — as a freshman — for the New York

BOLTON LANDING Bolton girls seeking to fulfill their potential all-around player,” Morency said of the two team captains. “I’ll be leading heavily on them.” These two aren’t the only assets of the team. In 2009, the squad lost only three Seniors to graduation, so there’s a solid core of returning players with plenty of experience. This group includes Taylor Grover, who is a four-year starter. On defense, Rosie Denne, a Junior, will be serving the team for the third year as starting goalkeeper. Morency said the team includes an outstanding eighth grader, Olivia Seamans, who worked hard to earn a spot on Varsity. “The sky’s the limit for Olivia,” Morency said. “She works very hard, and she’ll get out of it what she puts into it.” Morency cautioned that the team has a lot of work ahead to prevail in the Adirondack League, which is getting more competitive year by year. “We’re playing schools that are much bigger, so a lot will depend on how much effort and commitment the girls put into this season,” he said, praising their work ethic. “So far, it looks like we should have a productive season.”

BOLTON LANDING — Success is a tradition for the Bolton Central Girls Soccer team. Between 2006 and 2008, the team dominated the Mountain and Valley Athletic Conference’s Division II. Last year, their first season in the Adirondack League, they lost two talented players — one of them was Elizabeth Parker, sidelined by a knee injury. But despite these obstacles, the
2009 team managed to place second in the league, tallying a 5-5-3 record. This year, Parker is back, and new Bolton girls soccer coach Patrick Morency has high expectations for Parker and fellow Senior Charlotte Caldwell in leading the team to new accomplishments. “Charlotte is an experienced defender, and Liz is a great

LAKE GEORGE — For decades, the Warriors have been successful with their aggressive smack-down, no-holdsbarred brand of football. Two years ago, they took their game to new heights, clobbering one opponent after another to tally an undefeated season. They shattered school records in the process. Last year, after a promising 5-1 start, injuries took their toll. Caleb “Monster” Meroski, the record-setting running back, chipped his ankle, and the season ended short of a Sectional title. In June, a group of talented seniors graduated. Meroski is
now running like a locomotive for Alfred University. But Jack Clark, Kyle and Lee McCabe are back. So is Willy Blunt, who moved into quarterback position last year as a freshman, surprising a lot of people with his prowess. Coach Jeff Bennett said he expects a solid year from Blunt. “Willy’s comfortable back there this year, and he’s excited to play,” Bennett said. That’s not all Bennett and his crew have lined up for the 2010 season. There’s Matt McGowan at wide receiver, who not only possesses the 6’6” height to let Blunt throw some lofty shots
above the reach of defenders, but he’s got good hands — look at his record as a Warrior basketball standout. “McGowan’s a real specimen on the field,” Bennett said, predicting more airborne plays this year. “He’s definitely a weapon.” And the “Meroski factor” is now likely to be fulfilled by senior Alex Liucci, tailback and linebacker. Liucci ought to know how to run, dodge and blast through opponents like Meroski did — Liucci blocked for him routinely all last year, mowing down the guys who tried to get close. Blunt will also likely be handing the ball off to Connell McCabe and Marty Zivica, who play tailback as Meroski did. The offense may be experienced and athletic, but the 2010 squad’s defense may be the dominant element in their success. “Our defense is pretty much all back this year, and as a unit, they look good,” Bennett said. “We’ve got good meat on the front line.” The beef, he said, is represented by Jack Clark, Lee McCabe and Kyle Bachem. “They’re all very strong,” Bennett said, adding that his team looks balanced with the players exhibiting a variety of talents — as well as enthusiasm. “Our guys work hard, they don’t miss practices — they’re dedicated,” he said. “We’ve got experienced players in key areas, giving us good leadership, and we’re happy with the chemistry.”

Lake George hockey team is moving forward with enthusiasm, commitment Hillary Clark, a tough, strong defender. “Jenna and Hillary will be running the team for me, so they’ve got a lot on their shoulders,” Barrows said, noting that Bechard, who teaches at a field hockey camp, is being moved to the center-midfielder position. “So far, they’ve done a great job of team building, running practices, and getting the girls pumped up for the season.” Carissa Root, a standout athlete, is returning to the forward line. Carrie Stewart, who’s taking over for veteran goal-tender Chelsea Oberowski, is working hard on honing her abilities, Barrows said. Jessica DeNooyer, a returning Junior, shows promise on the forward line, and Jessica Stein, a Senior newcomer, is training for defense, the coach said. Senior Carly Beecher should be good asset on defense, she continued. All are working hard to improve their game play, Barrows said. “With eight Seniors graduating, it’s a rebuilding year,” she said. “We definitely have a lot of new players now concentrating on skill development.” Barrows said she was impressed about how the players have shown such commitment to field hockey, particularly after the school board months ago proposed scrapping the program in a budget-cutting effort. The players have been turning out in force, and attended extra practices as well, Barrows said. “The girls are willing to put in extra time, they’re trying to build as a team, and we’ll see what the season brings,” she said. “They’re here to play, and I’m very happy about what’s ahead.”

LAKE GEORGE — Fresh off a turnaround year, the Lake George Field Hockey Team is now eyeing another successful season, the squad’s coaches said this week. The 2009 season was full of aggressive play, and highlights included beating the storied Warrensburg team twice, although the Burghers revenged the loss in Sectional play, recalled former Lake George coach Heather Usher, who this season is tending a baby at home. Her 2009 team tallied an 8-7-4 record, just two games behind Johnsburg, Adirondack
League champions. For 2010, Tonya Barrows takes over for Usher, and she shares similar enthusiasm about the team’s prospects. Although the team lost eight Seniors including standouts Katelyn Callahan, Taylor Dawson and goalie Chelsea Oberowski, some heavy-hitters are returning to the squad, Barrows said. Returning talent includes forward Jenna Bechard, considered a strong leader who scored a lot of goals in 2009; and

LAKE GEORGE Lake George Volleyball team seeking to add to their legacy Stanilka, Lake George’s volleyball coach for 35 seasons, said her 2010 team was working hard and had solid skills. “Our players are enthusiastic, they love the sport, they work well together,” she said. “They want to uphold the Lake George tradition.” Among those leading the charge are seniors Katy Munzenmaier, Erin Blunt, Kaylie Potter, and Kelly Flaherty, alongside juniors Amanda Chambers and Chelsea Sipowicz — all of whom have significant experience. Three other juniors will also be key in the 2010 campaign, Stanilka said. “We’re young, but we have strong potential,” she said, noting the team was advancing, step by step. “We’re taking one day at a time — Rome wasn’t built in a day”

LAKE GEORGE — There are simply not enough superlatives to describe the Lake George Volleyball program, which has dominated the region nearly every year for the last quarter-century and is recognized as among the top in New York State. In 2009, the varsity volleyball team won the Adirondack League and was runner-up in Section II — and that was an “off year” that other schools would doubtlessly covet. In 2008 the volleyball team racked up league, sectional and regional championships and ended up in the State Championship Final Four. During the past 20 years, the team has won the Section II championship 16 consecutive years. And the few years the team didn’t win, they were a top contender.
The Warrior teams have fought all the way to the state tournament 12 times since 1990 alone, and won the title in 2001. Considering the Warrior volleyball tradition, the 2010 squad has a formidable standard to work toward. Coach Cathy Stanilka said her team lost five talented seniors this year — Chelsea Scott Sara Anderson, Tess Bannon, Julia Hall, and Rachel Pliscofsky, all of whom had helped propel their team in 2009 to the state tourney Final Four. Despite this deficit, she said, the 2010 team is working hard in rebuilding the chemistry with an eye on yet another successful season. Recently, during their daily 150-minute practice sessions, the 2009 players were executing drills with energy and precision.

Lake George runners have heart as well as talent his prospects this year,” he said. The bright outlook prevails for the Lake George Girls CrossCountry team as well. Returning to the squad for 2010 is twotime Adirondack League individual champion Kacey O’Brien, a Senior. In 2009, she finished in Sectionals just a few places short of qualifying for the state championship meet. O’Brien, a co-captain along with Courtney Mastrodomenico, will be leading their squad, Smith said. “Hopefully we’ll have a very strong year for O’Brien and the other Seniors to finish out their careers,” Smith said. On the boys team, Sophomore Dan Jardine shows promise, Coach Smith said. Senior Corey Tomko, a team captain, has demonstrated both tremendous improvement and extraordinary leadership skills, Smith said. Although the team annually snags headlines, one of the guiding philosophies of the lake George Cross-Country program is that achieving one’s own individual goals is as highly valued as winning the glory titles, Smith said. The team welcomes runners of all shapes and sizes, and some are championship material, and others have a goal of finishing a race. All are encouraged and mentored to do their best, regardless of their physical profile or innate potential, Smith said. “We seek to have all perform well,” Smith said, praising the veteran team members for mentoring the less experienced and younger runners. The team has both girls and boys representing each high school grade, 7 through 12. Underwood, Tomko, O’Brien, Mastrodomenico and the other veterans look after the younger set, Smith said. “They’re all very encouraging to all runners, regardless of their ability,” Smith said. “We have a family atmosphere.”

LAKE GEORGE — In only two years at the helm, Lake George Cross-Country Coach Scott Smith has established a remarkable legacy of winning. In 2008, the girls team won the Adirondack League Championship and Section II title, and in 2009, the boys squad won the crown. This year, the tradition is bound to continue. Although Steve Petramale — a top runner in the state —
graduated in 2009, his outstanding teammate Willy Underwood returns for another season. Last year, Underwood secured second place in the Adirondack League championships, then finished third in the Sectional competition, but proved the depth of his talent weeks later by placing fifth in the state championship tourney, Smith said. “Willy beat the best in the area, and we’re very excited about

SATURDAY September 4, 2010
Go easy on ol’ Uncle Ted Making a difference: one person at a time
Earl Patric enjoys the view of Indian Pass from the waters of Henderson Lake in Tahawus
very now and again, we have the opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life. While such events may seem minor at the time, they can have a cumulative effect when they occur more often. Rarely do such occasions occur intentionally, we can’t actually seek them out. Rather, they come through some odd twist of fate or circumstance when it’s the right thing to do at the right time. In recent weeks, I’ve enjoyed three such opportunities. They weren’t lifechanging occurrences, but each proved to be a great day to be out. The first occurred in Ray Brook in my backyard, as I fished with an old high school friend and his son. I don’t know what I enjoyed more, the friendly banter, the competitiveness between father and son or the simple pleasures of watching two grown men be kids again, if only for an afternoon. Our day concluded far too soon and as they departed with a batch of fresh brook trout destined for the frying pan. I was left with the knowledge that it had been another day well spent, in the outdoors. Another opportunity came when a friend in Newcomb asked if I could arrange a guide for Earl Patric, a former biologist at the Huntington Wildlife Forest who was returning for the annual SUNYESF/Adirondack Ecological Center Reunion with his wife Jeanne and daughter Elizabeth. Mr. Patric, who worked and lived at Huntington Forest from 1952-1966,
wanted to visit Henderson Lake in Tahawus. The lake, privately held for over a century, is now open to the public. Unfortunately, I was not available to guide Mr. Patric, nor was I able to arrange for another guide. However, after Elizabeth assured me that she was competent and confident at the oars, I dropped off a large, comfortable rowing canoe on Henderson Lake. She took over the expedition. Mr. Patric described the trip in this note, “During the mid 1950s I was engaged as Biologist at the Huntington Wildlife Forest near Newcomb N.Y. At about the same time Mr. Roger Thompson was named Forester for the large forest property owned by the National Lead Company in nearby Tahawus. I was very anxious to develop a strong working relationship with Roger and the Company. On one of my visits to Tahawus, Roger showed me the Masten House, and we launched a boat on Lake Henderson. The stunning view of Wallface Mt. frowning over the lake was deeply impressed into my memory. A few days ago our oldest daughter Liz engaged a local guide who arranged for Liz, my wife Jeanne and me to return to this awesome spot some 50 plus years later. It hasn't changed much, and remains one of the great wilderness scenes in the Adirondack Mountains.” I again recognized that outdoor recreation amplifies the re-creation factor. Earl and Jeanne Patric now
live in Elgin, Ontario in the summer and the Florida Keys in the winter. Soon after, I received another unusual request from a lady interested in a trip that would allow her elderly mother to finally see a loon. Hailing from Mississippi, her mother had never witnessed a loon and her daughter wanted to share the experience with her. After agreeing on the date, I spent the next few weeks keeping track of loons on the local lakes and ponds. Loons, which are quite territorial, can often be reliably found on their familiar waters. However, as many birdwatchers will attest, the reliability of locating loons on such reliable waters is not always reliable. The day of the outing dawned hot and sunny, not ideal conditions to spend an afternoon in an open boat, searching for loons. Fortunately, loons are usually found on the Saranac Lakes, where I dock my canopied pontoon boat. We began the afternoon by docking at a soft ice cream stand, in the village of Saranac Lake. Soft ice cream made the hot day much more bearable. On a small bay on Oseetah Lake, we were greeted by a pair of loons and promptly entertained by a haunting cry as a male loon danced across the surface. A female loon kept a watchful eye, as we drifted
by. We watched the loons for almost a half hour, listening to their calls and light moans. At nearby Kiwassa Lake, we found another male loon chasing fish. Again, the loon offered vocalizations, which alerted a female and her young, and we kept our distance. The mother loon appeared to be teaching the young birds to fish. Watching through binoculars, we could see they were successful. In the span of just a few hours, I was able to connect a mother and daughter with an experience that they had talked about for years. The day ended as it began, with mother and daughter at the ice cream stand, laughing about the day. It was easy to see the child inside both of them.

or those of you who have yet to hear, Ted Nugent, the 61-yearold rock icon turned hunting show host, was recently in the news for violating nearly a dozen game laws while taping an episode of his show “Spirit of the Wild” in California. Nugent reportedly hunted over an attractant called “C’Mere Deer,” which California does not allow. He also took a spikehorn with his bow in an area with antler restrictions. The episode of Nugent shooting the young buck aired on the Outdoor Channel in February, and California game wardens viewing the show were quick to notice Nugent’s violations. He was originally facing 11 charges, but agreed to a deal with Yuba County prosecutors this month under which he pleaded no contest to two misdemeanors and agreed to a $1,750 fine. While some may chastise Nugent — who has long championed ethical hunting practices — for not knowing local laws, I would hope the majority can look past this err in judgement. Ted Nugent has been a positive force among sportsmen and gun activists for decades, fighting for rights the antis claw at every day. His unselfish ways with our military, the disabled and our nation’s youth are well documented — a fact he should be commended for. In this age of broken promises and double talk, Nugent isn’t afraid to speak his mind at the risk of being politically incorrect. He says the things the majority of us are thinking but are afraid to put in print and has sent many a bunny hugger scurrying down the hole from which they emerged. For this, I think ol’ Uncle Ted deserves a “C’mere Deer” salute. Moreover, I would hope folks consider the circumstances surrounding Ted’s case before passing judgement. While I know neither Ted or I would ever advocate breaking game laws, I think many game wardens would readily admit there is plenty of ambiguity and grey area in some. I have never understood, for example, why it is legal to hunt over a food plot or on the edge of a cornfield or apple orchard but not near an attractant made of these very same materials. I’ve watched from a treestand as deer crunched away on freshly fallen apples, but rake those same apples into a pile and you’re breaking the law. I mean, what if you mow your food plot and the deer are browsing on the clippings you dumped over the bank? I suppose that would be illegal, too. Or, what if you cut down an oak tree laden with acorns. Could that be construed as feeding the deer? Seems like a lot of subjectivity there. Some states define products like “C’Mere Deer,” “Deer Cane” and “Acorn Rage” as attractants, and they are therefore legal to use, while others — like New York — classify them as feed. In New York, it is illegal to feed deer in any way, except, of course, if it is the aforementioned food plot, corn field or apple orchard. But lures and calls that trick a deer into looking for love and airborne scents, like the “Buck Bomb” scented fogger — also marketed by Acorn Rage — are perfectly legal. Confused yet? Perhaps I can help. According to state lawmakers, if it is an attractant that might “entice a deer to feed” you’d better leave it on the shelf at Gander Mountain. Call me crazy, but I might argue that a can firing acorn flavored scent at 100 mph into the air could “entice a deer to feed.” Meanwhile, poor old Uncle Ted is being ridiculed for using a product in California he uses all the time in his home state of Texas, where it doesn’t exactly seem to be decimating the deer herd. Go figure. I’ve got one thing to say to you, Ted: I bet the backstraps were worth the $1,750.
