Jazz fest musicians inspire audience




By Thom Randall LAKE GEORGE — Wunderkind Jazz Saxophonist and singer Grace Kelly , 19, stepped of fstage Satur day, Sept. 17 after an encor e that evoked tears of joy in some spectators’ eyes at the Lake George Jazz Weekend. Within minutes, dozens of people stood in line for autographs from a woman who as a 12-year -old girl wowed her first jazz audience with her musical innovation. Kelly’s soaring impr ovisation and musical interplay with her talented band member, tr umpeter Jason Palmer, has since pr opelled her to play twice each at the Newport Jazz Festival and the Montr eal Jazz Festival, in Paris, Vienna, and in Lincoln Center with W ynton Marsalis for Pr esident Obama’s inauguration. Saturday night, she was in Shepard Park in Lake George, with her music and commentary charming one of the largest audiences ever at the jazz festival, which in its 28th year has become one of the leading venues in the Northeast to hear the finest jazz musicians alive — in an intimate setting.

When All Else Fails, You Need to Have a Plan


The date of Oct. 3 at 4:30 p.m. was set for own T Clerk Donna Combs to present the proposed 2012 town budget to the Town Board. Town Supervisor Kevin Geraghty noted that the town has filed an af fidavit with the state Supr eme Court citing the town’s expenditures of $247,370 as its share of the multi-million-dollar envir onmental cleanup of the former W arrensburg Board & Paper plant, off state Rte. 418 on the Schroon River. For decades in the early 1900s, the plant manufactur ed cardboard. A business developer r eceived grant money to develop it in the early 1980s, but he never put people back to work as he promised state and federal authorities. Thereafter, the plant and the plant and extensive machinery sat idle and became unusable. In the 1990s, the state Department of Environmental Conservation launched a joint effort with the town to demolish the building and clean up pollution at the plant site, primarily oil and solvents that had leaked into the gr ound. It has now been certified as a clean site. This week, Geraghty said the town was seeking to develop a riverside town park at the plant site, or sell it to a r eal estate developer as a site for condominiums. No action was taken on a pr oposal to r eplace a corr oded aluminum plaque on the exterior fr ont of the town hall. Town boar d member John Alexander pr oposed that a cast bronze plaque be crafted, at a cost of $2,200, to r eplace the original plaque, which would be given to the town museum. The money would come fr om an endowment left by the Emerson family for the town hall’s upkeep Citing budgetary concerns, councilman Austin Markey said the idea should be shelved in favor of earmarking the money for potential facility repairs.

Bolton Spelling Bee

The Bolton Community Spelling Bee, which generated so much enthusiasm last year at its debut, is back as an annual event. The 2011 edition is set for Sunday, Nov . 6 at Bolton Central School, and teams are now being r ecruited to participate. More than 200 people attended the event last year , and even more are expected this year. Registrations will be limited to 10 teams of 3 to 5 players each, similar to last year. In 2010, members of the Adirondack Phantoms hockey team participated, alongside teams representing various area businesses and organizations. Participants grappled with fifth-grade level wor ds — generating plenty of hilarity — as they raised money for the library. The pr oceeds pr ovided much-needed cash to help fund the library’s budget which has been strained by recent cutbacks in government subsidies. To register a team, set up a sponsorship or donate a prize, call Megan at 644-2233 for details.

Trustee of the Year

The Bolton Fr ee Library

Thrift Shop hours



has announced that one of its own was honor ed as “Trustee of the Year” by the Southern Adir ondack Library System. The awar d was pr esented to Hal Heusner at SALS’ recent annual meeting, held at the Holiday Inn of Saratoga Springs. Heusner has been a trustee of the Bolton Library since 2007. He also served the Library as pr esident of the board until January 2011. His dedication, spirit and unwavering support for the Library was r ecognized and applauded by his fellow trustees and library dir ectors at a meeting that award ed i nnovation a nd p rogressive planning throughout the SALS Library community, Librarian Megan Baker said. Heusner was pr esident during a period of cir culation gr owth and incr eased community involvement. He pr esided over the boar d when the library introduced its Cabin Fever Party and its Community Spelling Bee. The Cabin Fever Party afforded the community the opportunity to get together , in the dead of winter , to share a meal, listen to music and party as a group. In addition to giving adults the opportunity to test their spelling mettle, the Spelling Bee pr ovided first class entertainment and considerable comedy to the friends and neighbors who attended. This latter pr ogram was under consideration as Pr ogram of the Year by the SALS committee. SALS of ficials hailed Heusner for program development, helping devise new fundraising pr ograms, conducting needed r epairs despite a tight budget, and for helping acquir e a sculptur e by internationally famous artist David Smith. “Heusner is tireless in his determination to make the Bolton Free Library the best it can be,” a library spokesperson said this week.

Adirondack Journal Editorial


The answer is not foreign workers


ews last week that Vermont has long had a standing policy of “looking the other way” when it comes to migrant workers residing in this country illegally has disturbed many around the region. The announcement was made Sept. 15 by Gov. Peter Shumlin after two Mexican laborers were pulled over by Vermont state troopers, detained and later turned over to U.S. Border Patrol Agents. The troopers were following the law, but Shumlin made it clear that he wants his state to be able to interpret the law as it sees fit — meaning not turn over undocumented workers to the federal government for deportation. “We have always had a policy in Vermont where we kind of look the other way as much as we can,” the governor told reporters. “I just want to make sure that’s what we’re doing.” “We know the federal government wants to send them home. And we don’t,” he said. Comments from readers have ranged from those sympathetic to the workers and the farmers who often have difficulty filling badly needed minimum wage positions, to utter outrage against a governor who would support jobs for illegals over jobs for his own state’s unemployed. There is certainly merit in both arguments, but from our perspective it appears Shumlin was simply being honest. Right or wrong, the fact is migrant workers do make up a significant number of employees in places where American citizens just don’t want to work for the paycheck offered — like dairy farms. Like meat processing plants. And, politicians have been turning their backs to it for decades. Shumlin was just manning up and telling it like it is: It’s going on all over the country. While Shumlin’s honesty is refreshing, his methodology is anything but. First, he is advocating for breaking the law, not changing it. Regardless of his personal beliefs, Shumlin can’t take an oath to uphold the laws of his state in one breath and then tell state troopers to look the other way in another. At the same time, workers in this country who are not citizens — who do no possess a valid social security card and identification — bring their own host of problems with them. From crushing impacts on our health care

system to the inability to hold them accountable for taxes to skewing our census, the fact is problems arise when we factor migrant workers into the population. That cannot be denied, wether you believe they belong here or not. Therefore, Shumlin should be working to change the system, not figuring out ways to circumvent it. Finally, there is the argument that migrant workers take jobs away from citizens of this country. If that is truly not the case, then we have a much deeper problem. With nearly one in 10 Americans without a job and workers needed in jobs being taken by those who do not reside here legally, than we have both a welfare system and work ethic that need changing. This country was built on hard work by the unentitled; it is time we go back to that way of thinking. There is something very wrong with a society that pays its people not to work. A solution to both our unemployment problem and our illegal immigrant problem would be to put our unemployed U.S. citizens in the jobs held by, as Shumlin put it, “guest workers” from outside the country. Make it a condition of collecting an unemployment check each week that a citizen spend a certain number of hours working at a farm or other industry in need. Potential employers could be added to a list which could be distributed to those collecting unemployment. Workers could then prove they’ve put their time in before the next check would be handed over. The system would save places like dairy farms in overhead — putting people to work that the government is already paying to be unemployed — while teaching life skills to those who would otherwise be sitting home collecting from the government. At last count, nearly 40,000 people in Vermont and 1.3 million in New York were out of work. If Gov. Shumlin’s solution to the unemployment problem is to give the jobs we do have to those illegally in our country, then his plan is seriously flawed.

Letter to the Editor Taking statues off grave is heartless To the Adirondack Journal: My youngest daughter Lisa Marie DiBartolomeo Favar o was killed on June 27, 2011 due do an automobile accident. It was alleged that state T rooper Richar d Mancini veer ed from the path of an oncoming vehicle and cr ossed lanes to hit my daughter ’s car, coming from the opposite direction. She is buried in St. Cecilia’s cemetery in Warrensburg. Before Labor Day, I placed three beautiful cherub statues and solar lights to go along with flowers on her grave. These items lasted only thre e days before they were stolen. Someone had the nerve to decimate her grave by taking her belongings. She’s too young to be ther e. But to have someone steal these items is so heartless. Some people say that “it’s just kids,” but it’s illegal vandalism that is hurtful. I hate to think that as these vandals become adults, this is what Warrensburg has to look forward to. If your child came home with cher ub statues and solar lights, wouldn’t you ask, “Where did you get these?” I hope there are some parents who will ask this question. Her life was stolen fr om her, now the decorations on her grave were also stolen — why? Alice DiBartolomeo Warrensburg

GRAVE VANDALISM — Alic e DiBar tolomeo of Warrensburg arr anges flowers Sept. 12 on the grave of her daughter, Lisa Favaro, who was killed June 27 in an automobile crash. DiBartolomeo is upset because statues and solar lights have been stolen from Lisa’s grave, as well as from the burial plot of DiBartolomeo’s departed husband Anthony. Local funeral director John Alexander said st ealing items from graves was reprehensible. “It’s very unfortunate that some people ha ve no respect,” he said, noting that all local citiz ens must be vig ilant and r eport any unusual activity in the town’s cemeteries.

Among those participating in the Warren County Senior Banquet held several months ago were (left to right): Senior of the Year Fred Hoenigmann of Chester, Town of Chester Board Member Edna Wells, Warren County Office for the Aging Director Christy Sabo, Chestertown Mealsite Director Linda Lewis, and Warren County “Outstanding Contributor” Maureen Mihalic of Diamond Point, who has been involved in the Warren County Council of Seniors and has volunteered for a variety of tasks countywide Photo by Thom Randall

Meals on Wheels from page 1 shared her thoughts about Hoenigmann, who is r etiring in a few weeks after 25 years of faithful service as a Meals-on-Wheels driver for the W arren County Office for the Aging. “Fred is just wonderful — he’s very caring and inter ested in how I’m getting along,” she said. “I know I can confide in him and tell him how I’m feeling.” After maneuvering his compact Subaru up several r emote one-lane roads with several dozen hot lunches packed in a cooler on his back seat, Hoenigmann drove up a narrow lane, dodging deep potholes and driving over asphalt seemingly older than he is. He stepped into the house of his next client, Gertrude Beswick, 93. She was sunning herself —wrapped in a wool blanket — on a scr eened-in porch, enjoying the sunshine and a view of the valley below. “You ar e hiding fr om me today ,” Hoenigmann joked. They then traded quips about each other ’s age. “You’re fortunate you can see and hear well at your age,” Beswick said. “And it’s r emarkable you ar e a good driver.” “Keep well and stay out of the hospital,“ he advised her. Several minutes later , he pr oved Beswick’s compliment was accurate, as he drove his car up a steep, narrow driveway full of ruts. It was his fourth stop on his weekly cir cuit of 13 stops spanning 32 miles. Hoenigmann then climbed a wooden stairway to a trailer per ched on a hill. Stepping inside, Hoenigmann

was greeted with a smile by Anita Weber, 89, who was br eathing oxygen through plastic tubes. Her medicines were meticulously arranged on a coffee table in between her per ch on the sofa and her television. “So you are back from the hospital,” he said. “Welcome home.” “I was ther e for two weeks, for my breathing,” she replied, before the two shared some political opinions. Minutes later, he delivered a meal to Howard Wallace of Pottersville. For last week’s delivery, Hoenigmann had found no one home, but walked into Wallace’s home and placed the meal in his r efrigerator. This week, W allace was home. The two share d a hug when Wallace announced he was celebrating his own 89th birthday. “Stay healthy and make it to 100,” Hoenigmann advised Wallace. One stop later in Pottersville, he was at the home of Sawn V anselow. She told him this would be her last week for meal deliveries, as she was moving to Countryside home in W arrensburg for the winter. “Am I going to lose you?” he asked with a furrowed brow. After his stops in Pottersville, Hoenigmann explained why he was finally retiring. He said it is now dif ficult, at the age of 89, for him to deal with the challenges of driving and walking up to houses in winter weather. Dozens of times over the years, he’s had to walk up slippery or snow-covered driveways to deliver the meals, and at his age, he decided, it’s time to give it up. “Winter is r eally r ough,” he said. “The roads are icy, and in the past, I’ve had to walk over driveways with snow up to my knees.” Chester Mealsite Dir ector Linda

Lewis said Monday that Hoenigmann will be missed. “He’s always ther e when I need him,” she said, noting he was punctual, dependable, and br ought cheer to so many people. “He not only delivers the meals, he visits the mealsite, eats lunch, and chats with people — he always has a smile on his face.” She added that Hoenigmann has reached out to his elderly clients in other ways beyond meals, including helping them move to a new address. Christie Sabo Director of the county Office for the Aging, said Hoenigmann of fered vital cheer and conversation to people who might not see another soul all day. “Fred’s developed a personal r elationship with the people on his oute,” r she said, noting that he has attended funerals of his clients who have passed away. She added that he was most deserving of the r egional Senior of the Year award that he received several months ago at a ceremony in Lake George. At that event, Hoenigmann talked about how fortunate he was to have emigrated to the U.S. from Yugoslavia and Austria, and established a car eer as an ir on worker. After r etiring and moving to Chester , Hoenigmann was a soccer coach for the local youth commission. “He said his volunteer service was his way of giving back to his community and our nation,” she said. “It’s er ally inspiring.” As he finished his r ounds Monday, Hoenigmann said he hopes someone else will step forward soon and fill his shoes as a volunteer. “In several years, maybe someone can deliver meals to me,” he said.

FEMA recovery center opens in Lake Luzerne

Office at Town Hall serves all of Warren County By Thom Randall LAKE LUZERNE — More than 20 experts in disaster assistance — r epresenting well over a dozen federal and state agencies — are now on duty in the new Disaster Recovery Center at the Lake Luzerne Town Hall to aid local individuals and businesses, in W arren County and surr ounding areas, recover from Tropical Storm Irene. Through mid-October, they’ll be there seven days per week, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. But on Satur day Aug. 17, the second day the center was open, these disaster aid personnel were staring at the walls and chatting with each other . Not one person had yet showed up at the center to request help. Despite the lack of public turnout, Federal Emer gency Management Agency spokesman Peter Lembessis said that he expects some traf fic soon at the disaster aid center. “Maybe they don’t r eally know we’r e all here yet,” he said, noting that the center will be open probably into October. “People may not yet know the extent of their losses.” Looking at the various agency personnel read books or gaze into space, Lembessis said he was pleased with the extensive outreach the state was offering, as well as his federal colleagues. “I’m very impr essed with the state,” he said, “The range of services they’ve assigned to staff this center is outstanding.” Not only is FEMA offering grants of up to $30,000 for individuals to r eimburse damages to their primary homes, but they are offering additional sums up to $200,000 in low-interest loans for rebuilding. Also, the state is of fering weatherization grants to moderate-income families whose

homes have suffered damage from hurricanes Ir ene and Lee. Qualifying families of modest income displaced by these storms are also eligible for low-income housing. The f ederal S mall B usiness Administration, agency representatives explained, is offering low-inter est loans to enable homeowners to r ebuild after suf fering str ucture, real estate and personal pr operty losses. Renters who wer e flooded out can r eceive these loans toreimburse their personal property losses. Also, commercial property owners can receive loans up to $2 million to r ecover and

rebuild, they said. The Red Cross was also manning a table at the Luzerne Disaster Recovery Center. They were r eady to of fer food, clothing, shelter and other temporary assistance. Ed Bartos of the state Department of Health was on hand to of fer advice on the dangers of mold, spilled fuel, and health hazards r outinely r elated to flooding. He was r eady to help people decide if their homes were indeed habitable. The Department of Labor was on hand to speed up unemployment claims based on job losses due to the storms.

Tropical Storm Irene is gone, but floods reoccur By Thom Randall LAKE GEORGE — Flooded out of her home weeks ago, homeowner Eileen Wells thought she could concentrate on cleaning up and reconstructing when Tropical Storm Irene subsided. Her plans were premature, it turns out. Monday, Sept. 12 while some local property owners were still recovering fr om Ir ene’s destr uction, a new flash flood occurr ed in Lake Geor ge, causing mor e damage to her home at 13 Bradley Street. A localized, mid-afternoon rain storm dumped about an inch of rain in portions of Warrensburg and Lake George within an hour, and water again gushed into her basement. English Br ook, plus a stormwater ditch that drains rainwater from the Northway sent water onto W ells’ pr operty and flooded her basement — again. A half-dozen other properties on Lake View Circle and Deer Run Road also experienced flooding Sept. 12. Last week, an insuranc e ad juster — viewing W ells’ destr oyed furnace, soggy joists and muck-filled ductwork — had estimated the cost to repair damages would total about $100,000. Wells aired her problems with the Lake George Town Board just hours after the latest flooding, asking that the town take action to protect her property and others.

Eileen Wells “I am beside myself,” she said. “Those stre ams have to be fixed.” Town Supervisor Frank McCoy said that town off icials would be consulting this week with Soil and W ater Conservation District Manager Dave Wick on what could be done to resolve the flooding problems, and that local contractor Daniel Ellsworth, who’s already contracted to dredge local streams, might be able to carve a deeper channel and build a berm that would pr otect her home from flooding yet again, town officials said.

Representatives fr om the state Department of Motor V ehicles wer e r eady to help people obtain substitute drivers’ licenses, vehicle registrations and car titles that might have washed away . They also wer e pr epared, with a remote computer terminal, to take in license plates from vehicles that were submerged and now are junk. The state Office of Temporary & Disability Assistance was on hand to help people apply for food stamps that wer e lost in the flood, or replace benefit verification letters. The Warren County Social Services Department personnel wer e also on hand to help people with foodstamps, temporary assistance, or to assist with their medical home care needs. “We’ll be her e seven days a week to help whomever we can,” said Colleen Mosher. Dozens of area homeowners and business owners suffered millions of dollars worth of damage due to T ropical Storm Ir ene, which roared thr ough the eastern Adirondacks Aug. 28, dumping up to 8 inches of rain that swelled dozens of creeks that became raging rivers, r ipping o ut b ridges a nd h ighways, pushing houses off their foundations, flooding homes and businesses. High winds of the storm felled trees that sliced through homes, crushed vehicles and sank boats. Looking at idle workers Satur day in disaster outr each center , Lembessis said he hopes citizens with storm losses eventually show up. “People up her e just grab a hammer and fix things up — they may think it’s too much of a hassle to file for aid, but all it takes is a visit and a phone call,” he said. Lembessis ur ged all with storm losses to call FEMA first at (800) 621-3362 to r egister and get a case number befor e they come to the center in person. Then, they can get expert help, he said. “We want people’s houses to be safe, sanitary and livable,” he said. “This is what we’re providing.”

Plans unveiled for major supermarket in Warrensburg

By Thom Randall WARRENSBURG — Two developers are competing to launch a major discount gr ocery store soon in or near Warrensburg, and one of them presented initial plans Tuesday Sept. 20 to town officials. Devin Dalpos of Laker Development Group unveiled plans to the W arrensburg Planning Boar d for a 30,000- to 35,000square-foot supermarket to be developed on about 25 acres behind the town’s post office on Main Street. He said he has been negotiating with two major grocery chains to site stores there, but he declined to name them. The development would stretch back into the woods at the foot of Hackensack Mountain, adjacent to Oscar ’s Smoke House. Dalpos said that his firm would be pr esenting mor e compr ehensive plans to the board as soon as this next week, and that, if approved, pr eliminary constr uction work could begin before winter arrives. “This a very exciting plan,” town Councilman Bryan Rounds said, noting that a supermarket at that site would stimulate new development in the Warrensburg hamlet, boost traffic at all local businesses, plus pro d owners of deteriorating r etail pr operties to upgrade. Dalpos and town of ficials said the supermarket would draw people fr om all over northern Warren County as well as Hamilton County and southern Essex County. The Laker Development of Saratoga Springs isn’t the only firm that’s proceeding on supermarket plans locally. Vanguard-Fine Real Estate is moving forward with plans for a compact mall containing a major supermarket acr oss fr om McDonald’s Restaurant of f Pr osser Road. This hillside plot, near I-87 Northway Exit 23, is in the town of Lake Geor ge, although visitors identify it as belonging to Warrensburg. Barry Feinman of V anguard Fine said Monday that he is intending to pre sent plans Oct. 4 to the Lake Geor ge Planning Boar d. Local officials say that Feinman is developing a site for Price Chopper, and he is meeting with the state Department of T r ansportation soon to discuss traffic issues. “We’re looking forward to bringing a major supermarket to an underserved ar ea,” Feinman said. Feinman’s plans call for a 40,000-squar efoot supermarket, plus a bank and several other retail stores adjacent.

Both developers said this week, however, that the W arrensburg ar ea can only pr ofitably support one local major supermarket. Feinman said his site is the better of the two because it is closer to the Northway exit. Dalpos said Monday his site of fers tax income to Warrensburg, it will boost traffic to other hamlet businesses, and it’s within convenient walking distance to many local shops. “The attractiveness of this site is that it’s in the town of W arrensburg,” he said. “It means adding to local tax er venue and it will be a lar ge draw , pulling people thr ough town so local enterprises can captur e their business.” Warrensburg town officials said, however, that whichever development plan gets in place first would likely win out. “A supermarket is coming to W arrensburg,” town Supervisor Kevin Geraghty

said. “And now the race is on.” Town of ficials said the site in the hamlet didn’t necessitate appr oval fr om Adirondack Park Agency and other state panels, and sewer and water infrastr ucture was already in place. The Prosser Road site would necessitate negotiating sewer and water service with W arrensburg, and per haps the Lake George Town Board setting up a sewer district — time-consuming processes. Dalpos said his gr oup “contr ols” par cels of land northwest and southeast of the main plot behind the post of fice, per haps for future development for stores. He said he has an option to pur chase the Kreinheder ’s Antiques property, as well as a home on Hackensack Avenue directly at the junction of Hackensack and King Street. Dalpos said theoretically plans might call for developing a side entrance to the supermarket complex through that parcel, allow-

ing r esidents of the King’s Addition neighborhood easy access. The Laker Development plans call for two two-way entrances that straddle the post office and connect to Main Stre et. A parking lot for 165 to 200 cars would sit behind the post office and in front of the store. Warrensburg Planning Board member Alice Farrell urged Dalpos to allow appr opriate space on driveways for access by lar ge recreational vehicles and tr ucks towing boats, as well as taking pr ecautions to pr event er osion, considering r ecent storm washouts. She also urged Dalpos to make the buildings architecturally attractive. “We’re concerned to have this development well done, and not be a victim as our town has been in the past,” she said. “If your plans ar e eye-catching, pleasing and welldesigned, they’ll be welcome with this board.”

Cancer patient to run in Adirondack Marathon Adk Distance Festival this weekend By Fred Herbst SCHROON LAKE — A cancer patient will be among the runners in the Adirondack Distance Festival this weekend in Schroon Lake. Noirin Lucas of New York City will toe the starting line for the half marathon Sunday. Lucas ran the race last fall to celebrate her victory over the breast cancer, which doctors had told her was in remission. “Last fall a r unner friend suggested I try a race — the Adirondack Half-Marathon,” Lucas wr ote in the July issue of Runner ’s World magazine. “He thought it would be a good first long race because it has a small field. In all my years of running, I had never needed the goal of a race to get out and moving. thought that starting-line tension and finish line prints were overrated, and really don't like crowds. But I had been trying to do something adventur ous every summer since I had finished chemo two years earlier , and this fit the bill. “It turned out to be exhilarating,” she wr ote. “We ran around Schroon Lake, ending at a beach. Loved the people I met along the hilly course, the scenery, the massage and dip in the lake at the end, and being able to say I'dun r 13.1 miles. Plus, I got a big kick out of the announcer saying, ‘And all the way from New York City, Noirin Lucas,’ as I crossed the finish line in 2:04.” Lucas’ excited was short-lived. “At the end of December, I learned that my breast cancer had pr obably metasta-sized,” she wr ote. “The shock was particularly intense because I’d seen my oncologist just thr ee months before and ther e had been no warning signs. Fr om the high of feeling as fit as I ever had at the beginning of the month, I’d been handed a death sentence.” But Lucas has not let her illness place her on the sidelines. She will be running in Schroon Lake this weekend. More than 1,200 runners are expected to toe the line in the half marathon, marathon and marathon relay Sunday, Sept. 25, in Schroon Lake. The marathon and half marathon ar e part of the Adirondack Distance Festival. The distance festival also includes 5 and 10-kilometer road races in Chestertown Saturday, Sept. 24.

A cancer patient will be among the runners in the Adirondack Distance Festival this w eekend in S chroon Lake. Noirin L ucas of New York City will toe the starting line for the half marathon Sunday. About 1,600 runner are expected for the two-day event. Past races have attracted r unners fr om Japan, United Kingdom, Egypt, Alaska, California, Or egon and a host of other locales. The marathon has been recommended by Runner’s World magazine as one of “Eight Great Events to Kick Off the Fall Racing Season.” The race was also listed in the book Fr om Fairbanks to Boston, 50 Gr eat U.S. Marathons as one of the top 50 races in the country. Prevention Magazine listed the Schroon race as one of the best “walker -friendly” events in the country. The marathon, 26 miles, 385 yar ds, will start at 9 a.m. on Main Street in Schroon Lake. The single loop course circumnavigates Schroon Lake over challenging for est roads with lakeside views until it finishes back at the Schr oon Lake town beach. There is also a two-person marathon relay that gets under way at 9 a.m. People who wish to walk the marathon course can get started at 7 a.m. The course will remain open until 3 p.m. For the first time, this year the marathon will of fer “pace bears,” experienced runners who will help guide other competitors through the course at a specific pace.

Only two marathons in the New England Region of fer pacer services to their participants. “Pace bear” pr ofiles are available online at www “Pace bears” are available beginning at the 3:30 finishing goal and in 15 minute incr ements all the way thr ough the 4:45 pace. “Their experiences and inter ests are varied and you will be assur ed of many inter esting conversations along the way,” said Bob Singley of the marathon committee. “Ther e is no r egistration necessary. You may join your pr eferred bear at the start –each will be carrying a finish time sign— or along the way. If you have been too optimistic and discover you ar e unable to keep up with your pr eferred bear, you may dr op down to a mor e relaxed bear. Or if you ar e tired of going alone, you are welcome to join a group at any time.” The marathoners have company over the second half of the course as the half marathoners will toe the starting line in Adirondack at 10 a.m. to race to the finish in Schr oon Lake 13.1 miles later. Marathon weekend begins on Satur day, Sept. 25, at 9:30 a.m. with 5 and 10-kilometer r uns thr ough the str eets of Chestertown. The races begin and end at the Chester Municipal Center. Individual racers as well as teams can r egister on Friday, Sept. 23, from 7 to 9 p.m. or Saturday morning from 7 to 8:30 a.m. at the municipal center. Also participating will be about 500 volunteers, who will man aid stations along the courses and work the finish are a. Packet pick up for marathon and half marathon racers will be Saturday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Schr oon Lake Central School. There will be a running expo at the same time. There will be a pasta dinner, open to runners and others, that night at 5:30 at Word of Life. Tickets are available at the expo and at the door. The marathon course r ecords ar e held by David Herr of Canaan, Vt., and Simone Stoeppler of Germany . Herr ran 2 hours, 35 minutes, 38 seconds in 2009, while Stoeppler ran 3:04:08 in 2004. The hand cyclist r ecord belongs to Bill Schwarz, who rolled to a 1:45:32 mark in 2008. The half marathon r ecords belong to Eric Blake, who ran 1:10:43 in 2004, and Annette Acuff, who was clocked in 1:23:13 in 2007.

‘Moonglow’ balloon event returns to Lake George On one night a year , Lake George hosts a colorful nighttime display of a halfdozen hot-air balloons, glowing in all their dazzling

colors — illuminated fr om the interior with the pro pane jets used to inflate them for flight. The event is the Lake George M oonglow, s et t his year for 8 p.m. Satur day, Sept. 24, during the weekend of the Adirondack Balloon Festival, held nearby in Glens Falls and Queensbury.

Todd M onahan’s S unKiss Ballooning will again tether five balloons on Beach Road for a spectacular illumination and a premier photo opportunity for spectators, Lake Geor ge V illage Mayor Robert Blais said. Also featur ed in the village this weekend is the Lakeside Arts & Crafts Festi-

val, which starts both Saturday and Sunday at 10 a.m. Live music by Jackson Strong’s Ser geant Cherry Band, a new local gro up, will be featured each day in Blais Park. Saturday night, following the illumination, a fireworks show will light up the sky. It has been bankr olled by

Shoreline Cr uises, Lake George Steamboat Co. and Fort William Henry Resort. All events can be viewed from shor e or boat. Special cruises are to be offered, and views a re e xceptional f rom the Fort’s terrace pool. Special parking will be permitted at the former Gaslight Village site.

Jazz Weekend from page 1 As Kelly signed her last autograph of the afternoon Satur day, she said the jazz fest spectators grasped her band’s improvisation. “The audience was open to everything musically,” she said. “When Jason and I, wer e in our musical dialogue, people were really with us in the journey — and this builds energy.” Later, after the Don Byr on New Gospel Quintet ended the day’s concerts, his group gathered in a backstage dressing r oom. As Byr on hugged fellow jazz musicians from both Europe and Manhattan who’d come to Lake George for the concerts, the quintet’s singer D.K. Dyson talked about the rapport she enjoyed with the audience. Minutes earlier , she had electrified jazz fans with her soaring, funky gospel phrases that accompanied Byron’s fr eewheeling tonal explorations on clarinet and saxophone. “The cr owd was just pr ecious,” she said, dabbing makeup on her face. “They wer e r eal listeners, taking everything in. W ith patience, they let our songs develop. In Europe it’s common, but in America, that’s rare.” The synergy continued Sunday, Sept. 18. T he C harles C ornell Q uartet w as well r eceived. A r ecent graduate of Hartford High School, Cornell has captured r egional attention as a pr odigy

on the jazz piano. Sunday , his cool, cerebral style and easygoing lyricism won him new fans. He was followed by the group Apex, featuring the saxophones of Rudr esh Mahanthappa & Bunky Green. Mahanthappa’s playing reflected his technical prowess in playing the shifting scales and semi-tones of Indian classical m usic o n s axophone, f using his musical heritage with contemporary jazz strains. Set off the counterpoint of jazz veteran Bunky Gr een, the duo demonstrated how they’ve explored new jazz

territory and been hailed by Jazz T i mes for their gr oundbreaking collaboration. The weekend’s performances ended with the Kyle Eastwood Band, featuring bassist-composer Kyle Eastwood of California, son of actor Clint Eastwood. His band shined in their lyrical, reflective ballads as well as their uptempo selections — demonstrating Eastwood’s ability in penning memorable melodies. His compositions for film include pieces for “Mystic River,” “Million Dollar Baby,” “Gran Torino,” and “Invictus.”

Budgeting for a home improvement project Home improvement projects have become de rigueur for today's homeowners. Be it a kitchen remodel or the ever popular man cave pr oject, home impr ovement projects remain a goal for many homeowners. As enticing as a home impr ovement pr oject might be, no project can be successful until a budget has been established. The right budget will keep homeowners from going deep into debt when impr oving their homes, ensuring that, upon the pr oject's completion, they can fully enjoy their revamped castles without the specter of significant debt hanging ominously over their heads. Before beginning a home impr ovement pr oject, homeowners can take the following things into consideration. •Personal finances: It sounds simple, but homeowners must examine their finances before starting a home improvement project. Just because a bank will loan out money for a project doesn't mean the project is affordable. Homeowners should compar e their monthly expenses with their incomes, and then determine what's left that might be able to go towar d a pr oject. Monthly expenses include everything from groceries to mortgage payments. When the comparison between monthly expenses and monthly income has been made, homeowners can get a grasp of just what they can and cannot afford. •Credit score: Many homeowners finance home improvement projects with loans from the bank. Particularly in the current economy when banks are being forced to tighten lending r equirements, securing such loans isn't easy . Homeowners with significant credit card debt should eliminate such debt before beginning a pr oject. Doing so serves multiple purposes. First and for emost, eliminating outstanding debt will free up more money to allocate toward the project. Eliminating debt will also make loan applicants more


Concerned About Energy Costs? attractive to pr ospective cr editors, incr easing their chances of securing a loan and a lower inter est rate. •The project’s priority: Budgeting a home impr ovement project also involves being honest as to just how necessary the pr oject is. For example, a man cave might be a dr eam pr oject, but should it be a priority over other things around the house? If wear and tear is taking its toll on the r oof, for instance, the money going toward the man cave should probably be allocated to r eplacing the r oof instead. If a pr oject is low on the priority list but high on the want list, r e-examine those pr ojects higher up on the priority list to determine if they are more deserving of immediate attention and funds than vanity pr ojects. •Overrun costs: Not every home impr ovement pr oject will come in at or under budget. Many , in fact, go over budget due to a host of factors. Homeowners should not be caught of f guar d when a pr oject goes over budget. Instead, plan for the project to go over budget and expect such fr ustration. Allocate extra money in the original budget for overr un costs. This will r educe str ess and fr ustration, and if the pr oject comes in under budget, then there's extra money when the project is completed.

Burghers’ offense shines against Railroaders

Whitehall 58, W’burg 44 By Thom Randall WARRENSBURG — Maybe it was the home-game pr omotional signs scatter ed around town that paid off. Perhaps it was the tough conditioning, or maybe the coaches’ pep talks after the first two losses of the 201 1 season. But on Saturday, Sept. 17, the Warrensburg football team took on unbeaten Whitehall and gave them their toughest game of their 2011 season with an of fensive attack that demonstrated their true potential and energized their fans. If it wer en’t for the Railr oaders’ Josh Hoaglund — regional 2010 Offensive Player of the Year — who was racked up 307 yards running and was responsible for five touchdowns, Warrensburg would have prevailed. Whitehall won the game 58 to 44, but they were playing catchup to W arrensburg through most of the game. The Bur ghers racked up a 14-0 lead early in the first quarter behind successive touchdowns by Jere my Barber and Lucas Nelson — enjoying a lead of 14-0 for a spell — befor e the Railr oaders answered with a goal. This contest against the Bur ghers was quite a jolt for Whitehall, which beat the aggressive Lake Geor ge team 30-0 last week and Salem 20-0 the week before. Warrensburg head coach Mike Leonbruno said Satur day’s game showed the spirit in his players he’s been looking for. “Every time we got the ball, we had a good drive — it was a very exciting game,” he said. “Our team played with passion; they played tough; it was good.” Leonbruno said the coaches have been expecting such a breakout.

of the season included too many mistakes, including fumbles, miscues and players out of position or not executing game plans. Saturday was different. “This week we played a lot smarter ,” he said. The beefy offensive line held back the storied Whitehall defenders, allowing Bur gher quarterback Malachai Pr osser the time he

needed to make plays, including a 68-yar d toss to Lucas Nelson. The Bur gher line also opened up holes for their r unning backs to gain yar dage they needed to r un up the score. Lucas Nelson gained 166 yards and scored two touchdowns to lead the offensive show, Matt Boodman rushed for 149 yards and two goals, and Jer emy Barber added 106 yar ds

and a touchdown. The Bur ghers, however , now need to tweak their game plan to curb other teams’ scoring efforts, Leonbruno said. “On Saturday we opened a lot of eyes,” he said. “But we now have to figure out our defense so we stop other teams fro m scoring so many points.”

Veteran Salem football squad defeats Burghers

Sept. 10 home opener By Thom Randall

WARRENSBURG — The Burghers’ first home game of the football season Sept. 10 was a disappointment for local fans, as visiting Salem showcased their

deep-running offense, cruising to a 266 Class D victory. Totalling 400 yar ds gained on the ground, the seasoned Salem squad had three players tally more than 100 yards. Bright aspects for the Bur ghers included 63 yar ds of yar dage in r uns by Lucas Nelson, and 64 yards rushing by Jeremy Barber, who scored the Burgher

touchdown. Although their of fensive game plan was shifted for 2011 to feature ground yardage, the Bur ghers achieved their best success in the air . Quarterback Nolan Maltbie completed five of eight passes for 54 yar ds, aided by Lucas Nelson with one completion for one attempt for 10 yar ds, and Connor Scott with similar success with an 1 1-yard gain. On the receiving end were Shea Irish with four catches for 60 yar ds, Hunter Werner with two for 20, and T yler Wilcox with a r eception for a 2-yar d gain. However, Burgher coach Mike Leonbruno said that the Bur ghers need to work further on skills and concentrate on following the plays. “We beat ourselves with a lot of fumbles and penalties that really hurt,” he said, praising the abilities of the veteran Salem players. “W e need to have guys do their jobs and accomplish what they’ve been coached to do.” The players need to adopt a new mindset, looking beyond the past losses and embrace a winning attitude, he said. “We have to be mentally tougher to win some games,” he said. “The players have to r eally believe they can win.”

Young Burghers winning games as they learn football CORINTH — The players on Warrensburg Youth Football have been working hard this year learning skills of the game, and in the first two weeks of the 201 1 season, their dedication has paid off, coaches reported this week. The players’ commitment to football was demonstrated Saturday, Sept. 17, when the 5th and 6th grade football squad scored a commanding 30-16 victory away against ever -tough Corinth. Behind the blocking of Will Schwartz, Robert Shepler, Cole Lanfear, Mike Clickner and Hunter Mosher, the team’s running backs gained substantial yardage and scored the touchdowns that defeated the aggr essive and physical Corinth team. The players’ of fense wasn’t limited to the gr ound. They also completed a good number of passes, including thr ee successful conversions, which added a total of six points to the score. The Bur ghers gaining on the gr ound wer e Gr eg Shambo with thr ee touchdowns and John Kelly with another . Dan Monthony and Jacob Johnson tallied over 200 yard s rushing. Gaining yar dage both on the gr ound and catching passes from quarterbacks Evan MacDuff and Garry Ross were Mike Baker, Jacob Johnson and Brandon Bailey. Burgher Coach Gary Baker said the victory was about his team playing tough, traditional football. “We just kept pounding the ball the old-fashioned way until we eventually wore down the Corinth defense and something broke open for a score,” he said.

Holding Corinth to 16 points — six of which were scored in the game’s final moments — was considered a big feat as Corinth has been a stro ng, well-coached team for years, Baker said. “They set the bar to where we want our program to be, so this victory is very sweet for our kids,” he said. “My heart will be broke when they’re off to high school.” Accomplishing anywhere from 8 to 22 tackles each in the Corinth matchup were Burghers Brandon Bailey, Mike Baker, Dan Monthony, Will Schwartz, Greg Shambo and Robert Shepler. The next game for the 5th and 6th W arrensburg Squad is at home Satur day, Sept. 24 against Glens Falls at 9:30 a.m. and 3rd and 4th away in Fort Edward on Sunday at 10 a.m.

Younger Burghers defeated

Despite a str ong ef fort by the W arrensburg 3r d and 4th grade football squad against Corinth Saturday, Sept. 17, the team came up short with the 6-25 loss. The game, however, had its high points, which included a 33-yard touchdown run by Jesse Griffin. The Bur ghers’ solid ef fort included 16 tackles by Danny Kelly, and 13 tackles by Jackson Corriveau and Thomas Moore, Coach Brian Winchell observed. Their next game is at 10 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 25 at 10 a.m.

Burghers derail Railroaders

The 5th and 6th grade W arrensburg Youth Football team

combined solid r unning with aggr essive defense to defeat Whitehall Sept. 10 in a night game away under the lights. Leading the offensive charge for the Burghers was running Back John Kelly, who scored four touchdowns. Dan Monthony and Greg Shambo accumulated 250 yards on the ground as well, aided by solid blocking. The entir e team also shut down Whitehall with a very strong defense, in which nearly every Bur gher tallied fr om five to 20 tackles. “In a game wher e injuries wer e occurring almost every play, our kids seemed to get stronger — on both sides of the ball — as the game went on, Burg her Coach Gary Baker said. “Offensively, our line opened up huge holes and our backs ran the complex plays to perfection,” he said. Baker added he was pr oud of his players, particularly their commitment to practice regularly through August. “They ar e tr uly a special gr oup of kids,” he said. “Fr om offense to defense, for the full four quarters, these kids played har d — everyone deserves the cr edit for this huge win.”

Mini-Burghers prevail in opener

The Warrensburg 3rd and 4th grade football opened their season Satur day, Sept. 10 with a har d-fought 12-6 victory over Whitehall. The campaign included two touchdowns by Jackson Corriveau, strong running by Danny Kelly, and aggressive defense by the entir e team, particularly Hunter McKenna and Thomas Moore.

Cedar, the Gladiator


Autumn on the Rise C

ooler weather has already jump-started the fall foliage season, prior to the arrival of the autumn equinox, which occurs on Sept. 23. As daylight hours continue to diminish with each passing day, we can expect the usual cool, crisp air and heavy valley fog of early fall mornings. Although recent flooding has adversely affected the prime fall tourist season, the NYSDEC has been working in cooperation with trail crews from the ADK, to get the trails reopened. In this regard, common sense trumped the policies that banned the use of motorized equipment in wilderness areas. Fortunately, the restrictions have been temporarily loosened. In order to restore some semblance of order to the backwoods, and open the trails, Forest Rangers and trail crews will now be allowed to utilize chainsaws, rather than being limited to the use of handsaws or axes, in their efforts. The DEC still urges travelers to be aware that even though some trails were not officially closed, they may still have bridges missing or wash outs. River crossings may continue to be hazardous for some time. Routes may also have areas of blowdown, eroded sections or flooded areas. Close attention is required, as many trails have been rerouted to bypass damaged sections and eroded drainages can be mistaken for trails. Details regarding current trail conditions and closures may be found on the High Peaks Trail Information web page:

Celebration of the sporting seasons

The Sportsmen’s High Holy Days have arrived, and the traditional changing of the forest guard has already begun. Over the course of the next few weeks, sportsmen will begin taking to the woods again, for their high season. Outdoor fashion will shift from GoreTex and lycra to green woolies and a buffalo plaid jacket. Beat up, old pickup trucks will start cropping up along the backroads again, and “Didja get yours yet?” will serve as a formal greeting, whether at the post office, the doctors office, or at church. Many local hunting camps have already been humming with activity, as work parties struggle to tidy up matters in response to the recent storm damage. Trails will be cleared, road ruts repaired, and leaky roofs patched and plugged, as mattresses are aired out and mouse traps reset prior to the Regular Big Game Season which begins Oct. 22. The annual hunting season was jumpstarted last week, as Early Bear Season began on Sept. 17. Bird hunters began working the fields and forests seeking ruffed grouse when their new season on Sept. 20. This season, the DEC is asking archery hunters to maintain a Bowhunter Sighting Log by keeping a diary of their bowhunting activity and the number of animals observed. The data will be utilized to help DEC track deer and other wildlife populations. Bowhunters, much as turkey hunters, spend a majority of their time in a stand, or a blind while hunting during the early morning or late afternoon hours. Experienced hunters know that it is easier to detect movement, from a stationary position. As a result, they are more likely to observe wildlife, than hunters who utilize more traditional methods such as deer drives, or still hunting. If you are interested, please e-mail and include "Bowhunter Sighting Log" in the subject line. Please provide your name, address, hunter ID (back tag number), a list of the counties where you hunt, and whether you have participated in New York's bowhunter log in any previous year. Grouse hunters are again encouraged to participate in the Grouse Hunters Diary Cooperator Program, which assists the DEC in assessing and managing grouse hunting opportunities statewide. Call the local DEC office for further information and registration materials. On Oct. 1, the fall season begins for both wild turkey and pheasant in the northern zone, as well as for woodcock. Woodcock hunters must again register with the Harvest Information Program in order to hunt this migratory species.

A Surge of Salmon

Angling opportunities will also pick up considerably in the coming weeks, particularly on the local lakes and ponds. Brook and brown trout have already begun pooling up on the streams, and similar activity is just a few

short weeks away on the ponds. When I spoke with NYSDEC Region 5, Fisheries Biologist Rich Preall earlier this week, he was still in the process of assessing the damage to local waterways from the recent storms. He explained, “The small streams, like Johns Brook in Keene Valley, and Gulf Brook in Keene really got hit hard. They were scoured and it may be years before they’ll be able to support trout again.” “The rivers has changed too, there are new pools and new riffles. After completing numerous flyover inspections, the Army Corps of Engineers reported numerous debris dams along the Ausable, that will need to be removed.” However, Preall also had some positive news, as well. “The fish ladder at Willsboro is already open, and we expect a big run of salmon on the Boquet River this year! We’ve already passed fifteen fish upriver, and there are a lot of fish below the falls. There were outstanding reports from the lake this summer, with anglers taking salmon up to six pound and in good numbers. We’ve also had a lot of cooperation from the various agencies, which have allowed us to continue with our scheduled lamprey control efforts. Fortunately, they’ve waived restrictions on the stocking periods.” DEC has scheduled lamprey control efforts for Thursday, Sept. 22, on the lower sections of the Boquet River.

ummer drawing to a close gives me a warm fuzzy feeling for a whole host of reasons. The cool bugless evenings. The changing colors. The impending hunting seasons. The way it feels to go commando in a pair of woolies. Last but not least, I love this time of year for the annual ritual of nasty, filthy, vile, godawful, disease riddled, toothy varmints taking up residence for the winter months in the eves of my home. Like sand through the hourglass, these are the days of my life. At least in the fall. And I hate it. I’ve set traps. I’ve covered openings with thick wire a trout worm couldn’t wiggle through. I’ve eaten a bunch of venison and washed it down with lots of cheap beer. In hindsight, I’m not sure how that helped, but it sure kept the neighbors at arm’s length. It didn’t seem to bother the varmints, though. Nope, fact was I needed a better plan. So, while finishing off my last Milwaukee’s Best, it hit me: I’d arm my humble abode with the meanest varmint assassin I could find — the Chuck Norris of the cat world. The type of feline that picks its teeth with piano wire, drinks from a broken mason jar and sharpens its claws with pool chalk. The kind that can take a punch from George Foreman — or at least one of his handy fat-reducing grills. The kind that can bury its own poo on a marble floor. You get the idea. There was one slight fault in my infallible plan, though. When it came time to choose my attack cat, I let the girlfriend go in my stead. She came home from the shelter with not one, but two cats, because, as she put it, “I couldn’t break up sisters.” (This is the part in the story where I stick my finger down my throat.) “Aren’t they cute,” she said, opening her outstretched hand and unveiling two tiny orange balls of fluff with eyes the size of quarters. “Nooooooooohhhhhhhhhh,” I screamed over my plate of venison, jumping to my feet and nearly knocking over my Pabst Blue Ribbon. “I didn’t want cute,” I screamed, hands on my hips, staring down at the quarter-sized eyes attached to the pieces of orange fluff in the outstretched hand. “Blink, blink” went the eyes. “I wanted a killing machine,” I blurted through venison and beer spittle. “These are not mouse assassins.” “These are not cats that could take a punch.” “Blink, blink” went the eyes. “These are not ... they are ... well, I guess they are kind of cute.” Fast forward to last evening. I’m on the couch, feet up in my lounge loafers, eating venison and watching my Yankees duke it out with Seattle, a fat, lazy orange cat on either side, slumbering away. “Plop” the first disease riddled varmint of the season showed its nasty, filthy, vile, godawful, toothy little face, landing smack in the middle of my hardwood floor. “Brfff, rffff .... mrfff,” I said, choking on a piece of venison. “Mouse,” I finally blurted out slapping at the cats with my free hand. “Fire mission, fire mission,” I yelled, reverting for a second to my days as an Army gunner. I stood back, not wanting to get tangled up in what was sure to be an epic battle, the likes of which had not been played out since Russell Crowe fought those tigers in the movie “Gladiator.” But the cats never moved. “Blink, blink” went their eyes. “Whyyyyyyyyyyy,” I wailed, arms stretched toward the ceiling, like Nancy Kerrigan after getting whacked in the shin at that practice session during the 1994 U.S. Figure Skating Championships. Then, just when I thought all was lost, a black head emerged from beneath a pink blanket. Like a tiny super hero, my dachshund Cedar shot off the recliner, skidded across the floor and flipped the hapless rodent in the air, snatching it in her surprisingly powerful weiner dog jaws. Turning to the cats, shoestring-like tail hanging from her mouth, Don’t let the cute, innocent look fool Cedar sat and waited for you — this dog is a Gladiator! the sign from the Colosseum crowd. Much to the chagrin of the mouse, two furry legs shot out and slowly turned paws down. But Cedar, the Gladiator, just turned and sauntered away with her prey, not giving the spectators the satisfaction. “That’s my dog,” I thought to myself, resuming my seat at the throne and taking a long swig of my Genny Cream Ale.

On a personal note

Have you noticed how few times folks have had to mow their lawns lately with so much rain? The little tots are asking if bears, deer , woodchucks and foxes can swim. Of course, they are also asking when they can go outside to play . Gripes have come in even without power off and a short time without phone service. Note that the Adirondack Journal’s Internet version is now revamped and has a lot more features, including up-dodate weather, late-breaking news and regional stories. I hear our editor is now making a special ef fort to get news posted on the Internet as soon as it happens. Now, all we need is high-capacity Internet service in Thurman that’s reliable and inexpensive! The O ct. 1 8 school board vote for t he s eat v acated b y James Carrion will be coming up at the elementary school very soon. Diane Angell of Bowen Hill Road has decided to run for the vacant seat on the school boar d. She has one child in the school system. Starting Oct. 1, the fall and winter landfill hours will be Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sundays fr om noon to 4:30 p.m. For information on the Thurman cemeteries or to get burial plots, contact the town supervisor at 623-9649. The cemetery committee no longer exists, and all the paperwork and information is at the town hall.

You will be doing them a favor by perhaps saving a life, so call the anonymous line at 761-9800.
