New police headquarters christened

Birdsall in race for top Thurman post

Boost in law enforcement envisioned

By Thom Randall

By Thom Randall

THURMAN — As of this week, there are now two candidates who will be listed on the ballot in the November general election for Thurman supervisor. Long-time town assessor Thomas “Tuck” Birdsall, 63, filed paperwork Sept. 20 with the county board of elections to be the Republican candidate for the post. Birdsall’s action follows the decision recently reached by the Thurman Republican Committee to choose him as their candidate. The committee consists of two members: Birdsall and Ed Binder. Birdsall joins Evelyn Wood, 33, in the race for town supervisor. She decided in July to run for the post after former supervisor Red Pitkin resigned from the position. The timing of Pitkin’s resignation blocked a Republican primary race,

Supervisors vote to demolish Cavalcade, but McCoy says ‘No’ By Thom Randall LAKE GEORGE — After two years of debate and contentious public hearings, the Warren County Board of Supervisors voted Sept. 17 not to condone the renovation of the Cavalcade of Cars building by the town of Lake George, but to pursue demolition of the facility instead. However, Lake George supervisor Frank McCoy said Sept. 20 demolition wasn’t about to happen. County attorney Paul Dusek has said demolition of the building would need approval of all the municipal owners of the building and the surrounding West Brook park festival plot — Warren County, the village of Lake George

CHESTERTOWN — Retired police officer Jack Currie stood with a half-dozen other former state troopers gazing at a display of photographs depicting police work in olden days in the southern Adirondacks. He and other former troopers joined about 15 active state police, local and state officials, and dozens of community members for a ribbon-cutting ceremony Sept. 20, for the new state police substation in Chestertown. “In the old building, we had no interrogation rooms,” he recalled, as citizens took a walking tour of the expansive, 19-room new building. “We had to take suspects out of the substation into our patrol cars to question them.” About 19 police will be working out of the new 7,100-square-feet building — 13 state police joined by a half-dozen Warren County sheriff ’s office personnel. The new state police headquarters includes upcounty headquarters for the Warren County sheriff ’s office. State Police Troop G Commander Major William Sprague said his agency didn’t need all the room in this building, which was built to state’s ample specifications, so his agency decided to host the county sheriff ’s substation — perhaps a first for the state police. “This provides a model for cooperation elsewhere in the state,” he said.“It will work for the benefit of both agencies.” County Sheriff Bud York agreed, noting the rent-free arrangement will save local taxpayers as much as $12,000 per year, while boosting

Scholarship winners announced

Korinne Talham

Sarah Garcia

Lindsay Maresca

CHESTERTOWN —Three area high school graduates have been named recipients of a scholarship annually awarded by the Adirondack Marathon Distance Festival. Each June the marathon committee recognizes three area graduating seniors from North Warren Central School, Schroon Lake Central School, or Mountainside Bible Academy, with $1,500 scholarships. The Michael Terrio Memorial Scholarship was awarded to North Warren graduate Lindsay Maresca, who is attending Quinnipiac University. Maresca is the daughter of Mike and Rachel Maresca of Brant Lake. The Peter Gushee Memorial Scholarship was awarded to Schroon Lake Central graduate Sarah Garcia, currently attending SUNY Adirondack. Garcia is the daughter or Thomas and Amy Garcia of North Hudson. The Tom Williford Memo-

rial Scholarship was awarded to Schroon Lake Central graduate Korinne Talham, who is attending Herkimer Community College. Talham is the daughter of Clarke and Cindy Talham of Schroon Lake. The Adirondack Marathon Distance Festival,

now in its 14th year, features a full- and half-marathon and two-person marathon relay around Schroon Lake, a children’s “fun run” in Schroon Lake, plus 5-kilometer and 10-kilometer events in Chestertown to be held Sept. 25 and 26.

Cavalcade From page 1 and the town of Lake George. Dusek has said in the case of an impasse, a lawsuit might be undertaken to settle the matter. On Monday, McCoy declined to comment on such potential actions, but he instead said the town board members were now “considering their options.” He has said such options include the other two entities buying out the town’s interest in the West Brook environmental park. Talk surfaced Monday night among people close to negotiations between environmentalists and the municipalities that this was now under serious consideration.

Supervisors wary of future costs All county supervisors but five voted Friday for demolition. The five voting to renovate were those involved in county tourism efforts: Ron Conover of Bolton, Frank Thomas of Stony Creek, Ralph Bentley of Horicon, Gene Merlino of Lake Luzerne, and McCoy — who had championed the renovation of the building into a community and events center along with his predecessor Lou Tessier. All the Queensbury and Glens Falls supervisors voted for demolition and against rehabilitation of Cavalcade. They were joined by county supervisors Kevin Geraghty of Warrensburg, Sterling Goodspeed of Johnsburg, Dan Belden of Hague, and Fred Monroe of Chester, all of whom had once supported renovation. Minutes after the vote, McCoy passed out a statement that read, “The real losers are the business people of Lake George who will not have the opportunity to host and stage major events. This decision was driven by special interests at the cost of the greater good.” Board chairman Fred Monroe said he voted against rehabilitation because it was bound to be expensive, and the county taxpayers would be on the hook for the costs if the town of Lake George at some point didn’t shoulder the bill. “The county is in no position at this point to take any risk like this,” he said. Geraghty added his thoughts, saying, “If creating this event and conference space was such a good idea, private enterprise would have taken on this project years ago.” Goodspeed commented on why he voted for demolition stating, “For me, it was a matter of taking the course of which action is most protective of the taxpayers.”

New building concept presented McCoy had presented a new rendering Friday of an expansive, Adirondack-style building, far more elaborate than a drawing he presented to the county supervisors in late spring. The vote occurred after a meeting, nearly three hours long, in which people provided arguments on both sides of the issue. Primarily business people — other than two major venues — were represented as favoring of renovation,while individual citizens who showed up for the meeting were generally aligned with demolition. Joanne Gavin of the Lake George Citizens group held up a stack of petitions signed by more than 800 people in the county, calling for demolition of the building. Thirty people stood up in support of her plea. Bill Kenny, embattled chairman of the Gaslight Ad-Hoc Committee, who was commissioned to provide a recommendation to the full board, had the last word before the vote.

SATURDAY September 25, 2010

Once an ardent supporter of saving the venue, he distributed a 13-page, single-spaced statement arguing in favor of demolition — then he read each word. He said Cavalcade renovation is likely to be expensive to Lake George taxpayers. Citing the recent White Paper tourism report, he said anything less than a complete rebuild, or merely a fixer-upper rehabilitation job, might discourage tourism rather than boost it. Kenny argued an empty, grassy parking area would attract more tourism than a rehabilitated building. He contended the Cavalcade building had reached the end of its useful life, and the county should not turn its back on the grant money earmarked by the state for its demolition. “This project was initially envisioned as a park,” he said, arguing for grass rather than any building in the future. “Leaving this building standing will create a perpetual money shortfall,” he said, claiming Cavalcade would compete with existing businesses including Fort William Henry, the Lake George Forum and The Dome. “A plan to slap on a new exterior and then spend $50,000 on the inside will turn out to be a disaster — a shabby building that appeals to perhaps a few groups, but turns away the masses,” he said, citing a “final nightmare” of the town reneging on its agreement to pay all costs, and dumping the facility costs on the county taxpayers. In the end, that’s what convinced supervisors to line up against it. Privately, supervisors who had switched their votes during several weeks said after the town of Lake George submitted a bill for $23,000 for maintenance of the building, they were against renovation. These supervisors noted they had been assured by Tessier the Cavalcade project would never cost the county a dime, and they were now dubious about allowing Lake George to pursue rehabilitation.

Business community favors saving it Before the vote, developer Dave Kenny, owner of Inn at Erlowest plus two big lakeside motels and the Adirondack Outlet Mall, said the supervisors should retain the building for events, conventions and festivals rather than convert the asset into a grassy parking lot. He said the true annual cost of the building would be $126,000 per year — presumably shouldered by Lake George taxpayers. He suggested the county Department of Tourism could relocate there, or portions of it could be utilized as an environmental education facility. “The county supervisors have a fiduciary responsibility to explore other options rather than demolition,” he said. In the past, he has had pledges of $750,000 of cash from area business leaders to invest in the property. Luisa Craige-Sherman, leader of the Lake George Chamber of Commerce, had presented a lengthy argument in support of keeping Cavalcade. She produced a list of 54 businesses in Lake George that support rehabilitation of the structure, in contrast to four that were opposed. She noted a conference and events center would boost the shoulder season, and attract a variety of new events to the village. Adirondack Pub & Brewery owner John Carr also gave a lengthy presentation in favor of retaining Cavalcade. He said the building would boost the prospects of businesses throughout Lake George. He contended the building was an important asset, and would help retain 8,000 jobs, which represent workers in Warrensburg, Chestertown, Johnsburg, Bolton, and other towns in the county as well as Lake George. He said the building could bring in $1.2 million in extra business, based on 19 new events per year, drawing about 500 visitors each. He said the use of the building would generate $84,000 in sales and bed taxes, as well as

$40,000 in rental revenue in its early years. He noted Saratoga Springs and Lake Placid both have added to their event and convention space, and if Lake George doesn’t take this opportunity to add to its facilities, it will be falling behind its competition. On Monday night, the Lake George Village Board passed two resolutions: one affirming demolition, and another urging Lake George to join the other municipalities in approving removal of the building. Trustee Joe Mastrodomenico voted for the first one, but voted against the second, citing his belief that Cavalcade renovation was a promising idea, and the town board members would be taking their own course regardless of the trustees’ proclamation. Just hours earlier, representatives of environmental groups met with McCoy to prevent him from blocking demolition of the other structures on the entire jointly-owned West Brook Park plot, so the project of creating a stormwater-purifying wetlands park would not be stalled. Village Mayor Robert Blais said if the town didn’t agree soon to demolition, it could put millions of dollars of grant funding for the project in jeopardy.

Mayor urges citizens to buy locally LAKE GEORGE — Mayor Robert M. Blais urged Lake George Village residents to spend at least $25 locally Saturday, Sept. 25 in conjunction with a promotion to support Main Street businesses across New York State during this stubborn economic downturn. This “$25 on the 25th” campaign is being jointly sponsored by the New York State Conference of Mayors, the New York Press Association, and the state Economic Development Council. According to Blais, the campaign will give New Yorkers a concrete way to support struggling local merchants, and encourage citizens to shop locally. If successful, the campaign will be repeated. “Sept. 25 is the day to support and celebrate Main Street businesses that give the village so much of its charm and warmth,” said Blais. The NYPA has created print advertisements for the campaign, which will run in community newspapers around the state. The group has also designed banners for store windows to encourage as many local businesses as possible to create shopping incentives for the day. “New York’s independent businesses are the heart and soul of this state, and New York’s weekly newspapers are doing everything they can to stand behind our small businesses,” NYPA executive director Michelle Rea said, noting the cooperation occurring in the campaign between municipal officials, shop owners, and business association representatives.

The party Sept. 12 at Maranville’s was well attended despite the rainy weather and it also didn’t stop anyone from dancing to the music of the Stony Creek Band. It was a wonderful time with great friends and food. Congratulations, to Ed and Carol on their multiple anniversaries.

WHAT ’ S H APPENING Let us know what’s

A good year for pumpkins Bolton Landing resident and horticulture enthusiast Alice Coon has planted her own vegetable garden, and she said this week this year has been the best for vegetable production that she can remember. Although she has many hobbies and interests, she said having her own garden is her favorite. She usually doesn't plant pumpkins but this year she thought she would give it a try. The results were a great surprise to her. Most of the pumpkins have been spoken for, but if anyone wants some seeds to plant, she said she will have plenty. Alice offered some advice this week for gardeners. "Don't plant anything you can't carry out of your garden," she said with a smile. Some of her pumpkins were at least 50 pounds, requiring help moving them, we hear.

Volunteers needed for Halloween event The staff of Up Yonda Farm is pleased to announce that after a year off, the Haunted Trail and Barns will be back for 2010 at Up Yonda. Preparations are currently being made for the event, which will be held on Oct. 22 and 23, but it can't be done without the help of some dedicated volunteers. This year, help is needed for carving pumpkins, bak-

•100 Years Ago – September, 1910• ‘Monster’ derrick breaks man’s bones Daniel Ray, employed as a carpenter on the construction of the new Fort William Henry Hotel in Lake George Village, was seriously injured Sept. 23, 1910 when a cable attached to a monster derrick snapped. That several others were not hurt is considered remarkable as a dozen men were compelled to make a wild scramble to a place of safety. When the cable parted, the great iron rope swung through the air and as it fell, carried Ray to the ground with much violence. Ray’s left leg was broken above the knee and he was mightily cut, bruised and shaken. A warning was shouted but Ray was not able to get out of range in time.

Woman suffers fiery death Mrs. Robert Hamilton of Greenwich was fatally burned Sunday afternoon while making a fire. She used kerosene to start the blaze and the flames leaped to the can and to her clothing. She was frightfully burned and died Monday morning, Sept. 26, 1910 at about 1 p.m.. She is survived by her husband, two daughters and a son, Rev. Charles E. Hamilton, a Methodist minister at Hagaman, who was formerly stationed at Hill View (Diamond Point).

Boy shot, could prove fatal Carroll Day, the 12 year-old-son of A.W. Day of Greenwich who has been living with Bert Hall two miles from Warrensburgh, accidentally discharged a revolver Sept. 25, 1910. The ball lodged in his stomach and it is possible that he may die.

Souvenirs collected by tourists Workmen in the employ of C.J. Reardon of Glens Falls, who has the contract to build the state road through the village of Lake George, unearthed three more skeletons Sept. 24, 1910 in the road near the Fort William Henry Park, which are believed to be those of Indians. Nine skeletons have been unearthed in the vicinity during the last few years.

The bones found Saturday were given to an automobile party which happened along when they were found. In one skull was found two teeth in perfect condition. (Note…If anyone finds human bones and teeth packed away in their deceased grandmother ’s attic, they should not fear the worst but should consider this story when attempting to identify the remains.)

News from Stony Creek and vicinity Arthur Codner of Knowelhurst has bought a new thresher and separator and is threshing grain in this area. Dudley Austin and a party of seven killed a bear and an extra-fine buck weighing 230 pounds. John Gill drove one of his moving vans into Stony Creek Sept. 27, 1910 with Lemuel Dean’s household goods. Mr. Dean has bought F.L. Knowlton’s store and residence and expects to be doing business soon. (Note…The building on Harrisburgh Road was originally the home and business of C.H. Gill and later that of F.L. Knowlton who became postmaster in 1894 and in 1897 placed a street lamp in front of his store. In 1905 he installed a pump in his well to which he attached 70 feet of hose to lay the choking dust in the street. Lemuel Dean bought the building in 1910 and in 1914 he had a horse shed built near his store for to accommodate his customers. History moved slowly in Stony Creek in those days. In more modern times this much remodeled building was called Briner ’s store.)

Happenings in North Creek Brailey & Noxon are building an addition onto their store. In other news, Arthur Holcomb, while coasting down a hill on his bicycle, was headed off by an intoxicated man who pulled his horse across the sidewalk so that it threw young Holcomb from his wheel. The result was a broken bone in his left shoulder and Dr. Brush reduced the fracture.

LATHAM/BRANT LAKE – Paul B. Morrisseau, 60, of Latham and Brant Lake, died Wednesday, Sept. 15, 2010 at his home after a courageous battle with lung cancer. Born in Troy on May 1, 1950, he was the son of the late Leo P. and Mary C. Meehan Morrisseau. Paul was raised in Watervliet and graduated from St. Brigid’s School and Shaker High School class of 1968. He later graduated from Hudson Valley Community College in Troy with a degree in business.

Future uncertain for APAsponsored visitors centers By Jon Alexander LAKE GEORGE — The Paul Smiths Visitors Interpretive Center is set to close to the public in roughly three weeks — but if or when it will reopen remains a mystery. As part of statewide budget cuts, the Adirondack Park Agency is shedding its two interpretive centers — which have been operating for more than two decades. The Newcomb center will remain operating under the direction of SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry. But attempts to find an operator for the Paul Smiths facility haven’t gone so smoothly, APA Executive Director said this week. “We’re working through the steps and we’re hopeful,” she

Police From page 1 communication between state police officers and investigators, helping them jointly solve crimes as the officers share background information on suspects and compare notes on cases. “This will make it a lot easier to solve crimes,” he said. “This is definitely a win-win situation for all.” While the sheriff’s deputies work out of the south wing of the well-equipped building, the state police will in turn have access to the sheriff’s real-time fingerprint reading and identification apparatus which can provide suspects’ identities and past arrest records nearly instantaneously. State Assemblywoman Teresa Sayward, RWillsboro, remarked the new substation meant a great deal to northern Warren and southern Essex counties. “This new station demonstrates a commitment


said. “We know how much these facilities mean to the Adirondack Park and to the public.” Costing the state about $350,000 to operate this year, the Paul Smiths Visitor Interpretive Center will shut its doors to the public Oct. 10, but the center ’s trail system and bathrooms will remain open to the public for the time being. The state will officially close the Center on Dec. 31, Martino said. “We’re currently in negotiations with a number of parties in terms of reuse of the facility,” Martino said. “But our plans in response to the budget mandate will include closure of the facility effective Dec. 31.” Unless an operator is found, the popular center — which teaches about the local environment and has hosted a full schedule of public programs —will sit dormant after that date.

to coverage, cooperation and camaraderie,” she said. “Crime per capita in rural New York State is very high, and police presence in our Adirondack communities is very important.” State Sen. Elizabeth O’C Little, R-Queensbury, praised the idea of shared services, an idea she has championed for years to streamline government. “I can’t tell you how pleased I am about this inter-agency cooperation ... considering the ‘Us and Them’ in our lives just has to disappear,” said Little. She explained police agencies first requested this new substation 31 years ago. “As you know, things in government take time,” she said. Srgt. Ken Kipper Jr. of Albany, as well as many troopers to be stationed locally, noted how the substation would be particularly useful, with its spacious facilities, during a large-scale incident. The building is owned by Elizabeth and Christopher Walsh of Long Island, who own a second home in Chester.

The APA has been negotiating for months with potential operators, including the Adirondack Park Institute and Paul Smith’s College. The property on which the VIC sits is owned by the college and has been leased to the state for years. “We’re continuing to have discussions with the Adirondack Park Institute and working through steps in terms of the interests they have expressed,” Martino said. Paul Smith’s College spokesman Ken Aaron said Friday that talks between the interested parties continue and the college remains confident the issue can be resolved. “We continue to work with the state,” he said. “As far as I know, we’re working well and hope to have a resolution soon.” Over 20 years, about 500,000 people have passed through the two interpretive centers.

Christopher Walsh, who is an electrician in New York City, said he was pleased to host the law officers in the building he and his wife had built. He declined to reveal the price of the building, which is under a long-term lease to the state. While more than a dozen troopers and as many retired officers reviewed the station’s amenities, including a dispatch room, interrogation rooms, spacious storage areas, meeting rooms, kitchen, and a spacious locker room, others admired the lobby that includes a multi-tiered vaulted ceiling in the entranceway, stone pillars and brick facade. Looking at the computer and GPS equipment, the retired troopers recalled how advanced the new facilities were in comparison to the small substation nearby that was in use since 1956 until just a few weeks ago. Several decades ago, the old substation had no dial phones on site — to make a phone call, police had to signal the local phone operator by

He served in the Chester substation from 1969 to 1975, and was station commander at the time. In addition to Lustyik, retired state troopers attending the station dedication ceremony included Mike Kellaher, “Cos” Cocca, Jim Neumann, Jack Currie, Charles Redmond, “Cash” Phillips, Pete Bentley, and Lee Steele, among others. Sprague praised the former troopers for showing up for the ceremony. “We have several generations of state police here,” he said. “This is a great testament to how our former officers are still concerned about the welfare of the communities they served.”

Diverse groups say DEC’s fire tower idea a ‘cop out’ By Jon Alexander RAY BROOK — Groups on both sides of the contentious issue of whether or not to save historic Adirondack fire towers aren’t pleased with a plan proposed by Adirondack Park Agency staff that could see the structures remain standing for a while — at least until they decay further. Park Agency staff recently recommended APA commissioners adopt a plan that would allow the towers atop Hurricane and St. Regis mountains to stay where they sit — but the initiative also bans any future rehabilitation. The plan would all but doom the towers at some point as they would have to be removed once the 90-year-old structures become unsafe. Dan Plumley of Friends of the Forest Preserve said APA staffers are just ducking the issue. “For the most part, they are choosing to punt the question required by the state Land Master Plan to remove the towers, which has been on the table since 1973,” Plumley said. “They don’t want to go there, which is too bad. So they end up suggesting a middle-of-the-road decision that doesn’t get them to implement the requirements of the SLMP and doesn’t make those who want to restore the towers very happy.” Like many environmentalists, Plumley noted the towers are in direct conflict with the State Land Master Plan. The plan would create tiny quarter-acre Primitive areas around the base of each tower, he said. “If they allow dilapidated metal structures to be considered appropriate within a Wilderness area through spot zoning, how will they disallow the proposals for 400-foot wind towers on private land?” Plumley said. Primitive areas are typically a step toward the Wilderness designation and contemplate the removal of non-conforming structures. The proposal would allow the towers to stay where they now stand until they deteriorate so badly they pose a public hazard. And like Plumley, Stub Longware of the Friends of the Hurricane Mountain Fire Tower doesn’t think the APA proposal solves anything.

“I put it in writing that if they let the friends save it, I will personally see there is enough money to buy material only, no labor,” he said. The state Department of Environmental Conservation —which owns the towers — could remove the towers at any time regardless of the APA’s decision. An alternative proposal could see the postage stamp land designated as Historic instead of Primitive. Under this plan, rehabilitation and public access would be permitted with either public or private funds. Friends groups have already begun fundraising drives for tower rehabilitation. The two different proposals appeared to split the APA board. Commissioner Lani Ulrich would like to see the private pro-tower groups at least have the opportunity to raise the funds to fix the withering structures. “I think we have cut off the connection between the long-term families and residents of the park with their love of their state land,” she said. “They were very involved with the protection of that land and as we are kicking down these structures or letting them deteriorate and fall down, we’re not doing them any good.” Some commissioners, like Bill Valentino, worry the historic designation would saddle DEC with another funding burden while the agency continues to experience ever-dwindling budgets. “I think everyone would like to give the community an opportunity to give it a try. On the other hand, this is more than just putting pressure treated lumber,” he said. “What I think is going to happen is there really isn’t enough money to do this in this difficult time.” State regulators admit no engineering study has been performed to gauge the actual amount of work required to fix the towers. But DEC contends similar projects have run the state up to $50,000 per tower. The volume of public comment received by the state is heavily in favor of keeping the towers where they now stand. Commissioners are scheduled to address the fire tower issue further next month.

rial along with a slide show of her outstanding wildlife photography. The presentation begins at 6:30 p.m. and the suggested donation is $2 per person or $5 for a family. It is not the first time Morse has visited Westport offering her photography and expertise in identifying animals and the signs they leave behind. Chris Maron, executive director of the Conservation Partnership, said Morse visited nearly a decade ago and drew a large audience. “When she was here in 2001, we had an overflow audience of over 260 people who enjoyed seeing the furs and discovering ways to find signs of animal activity,” Maron said. “They especially liked her beautiful pictures and lis-

Off to the woods....


ccording to the calendar, autumn has officially arrived and it appears to be in full swing. Frost is on the ground, hillsides are sprouting color and long V’s of geese can be seen overhead. For many, the change can’t happen fast enough. On the ponds, brook trout are again on the take, as are bass on the lakes. A sweet mustiness of decay now scents the forest’s far reaches, while oyster mushrooms again adorn the fallen beeches. The return of autumn’s cooler weather is always a welcome event. It signals the gradual transition from tourist season to hunting season, as great camps close and deer camps open. It comes at a time when the faces on Main Street are mostly familiar again and piles of firewood begin to appear in front yards. Although 2010 is on track to be the warmest year ever in recorded history, Adirondack residents know what to expect. Storm windows will be installed, the chimney cleaned and doors will be protected from drafts. Before too long, snow will again cap the mountain peaks. Now is the time to enjoy a

season that offers the very best of the natural world. Autumn delivers a multitude of outdoor activities, cooler days, quieter woods and calmer waters. Most of all, it provides local residents with a realization that we have chosen the very best place in which to live.

Invasives invade the Park

I received the press release on Friday afternoon. It was an announcement that Department of Environmental Conservation had found spiny water fleas in Great Sacandaga Lake near Speculator. According to the release, our newest invader is “a native to Eurasia. It feeds on tiny crustaceans and plankton that are food for native fish and other species. Their tail spines get caught on fishing lines.” “Unfortunately, another invasive species has spread in Denton Publications, Inc. the waters of New York state,” We’re more than a newspaper, We’re a community service. said Steve Sanford, director of DEC’s Office of Invasive Species Coordination. “DEC and its many partners are do-

Buck contest to benefit local youth TICONDEROGA — There will be a Big Buck Contest to benefit the Riley Knight family. There is a $10 entry fee and hunters must sign up before hunting season. Bucks can be weighed in at the EMA Tuesday through Friday 2 p.m. to closing and at Mike’s Bait and Tackle on Dusty Lane in Ticonderoga Monday through Sunday, 4-9 p.m. For information, call Bobby Fuller at 503-5022.

ing our best to alert water-based recreationists to the presence of non-native invasive species in our waters and will continue to promote practices that minimize the spread of these non-natives.” Presently, the DEC is nearly impotent in terms of stopping the spread of invasive species. They simply do not have the tools, or the teeth, to combat this growing threat. Instead of protecting our lakes and rivers by law, as in “it is illegal to..,” the DEC’s current approach is to “suggest that to help prevent the spread DEC recommends the following steps…” New York currently does have a law to prevent a person from knowingly transporting Eurasian milfoil or water chestnuts. The law is under Sec. 11-0507. Liberation of fish, shellfish and wildlife. It states, “No person shall intentionally liberate zebra mussels into any waters of the state. No person shall buy, sell, or offer to buy or sell, or intentionally possess or transport zebra mussels except under a license or permit issued pursuant to section 11-0515. Zebra mussels, except those lawfully held pursuant to a license or permit, may be destroyed by any person at any time. Sec. 11-0509. Water chestnut. No person shall plant, transport, transplant or traffic in plants of the water chestnut or the seeds or nuts thereof nor in any manner cause the spread or growth of such plants.” However, there is no such law to prohibit Asian clams, spiny water fleas, or any of the other known threats. This oversight must be addressed. A recent incident illustrates the point. Jeff

Sann, a Water Steward with the Lake Placid Shoreowners Association, was working at the state boat launch on Lake Placid. While inspecting a boat on the trailer, Sann noticed clumps of zebra mussels, on the hull, the motor and the transom. The owners explained the boat had come from Saratoga Lake. With the owner's permission, Sann removed all the mussels he could, by hand and then suggested they power wash the boat at a local car wash. According to news reports, “they politely refused.” Unfortunately, lake stewards have no legal authority. Asian clams, Eurasian milfoil, Zebra Mussels, Didymo, spiny water fleas and water chestnuts have already invaded numerous Adirondack lakes. Lake Champlain currently has at least 48 known varieties of invasive species. In terms of economic benefits, our freshwater resources are the goose that lays the Golden Egg. It has been estimated that three quarters of all visitors to the Adirondacks are seeking freshwater recreation. Invasive species are a threat to our woods and waters, they threaten our way of life, our economic future and our cherished traditions. The combination of climate change and increased globalization will certainly accelerate the process. Voluntary compliance will not prevent the spread; it is a threat that must be confronted by law.

broke out a pair of SmartWool socks this morning, pulled on a flannel shirt and could see my breath as I strolled to check the mailbox. God, I love fall. I feel sorry for folks who live south of the MasonDixon Line. They may get to golf year-round, but I’ll take the changing colors, the feel of a woodstove on a crisp autumn day and the deer season opener over that any day. Speaking of deer season, early archery begins Monday with last year ’s tag. Monday is also my son, Harrison’s 10th birthday — and, as he keeps reminding me, “I’ll be old enough to hunt when I’m 10.” Unfortunately, the law says otherwise, even though Harrison would probably be a more competent hunter at 10 than many adults I know. Either way, I hope to immerse him as much as possible this year. Introducing a kid to the outdoors at a young age is hugely important — it is such a healthy alternative to the computer/video/television world with which they are inundated. Plus it might just give him an incentive not to move south following graduation.

Adirondack Balloon fest this weekend to the airport in time to beat the crowds. On Friday Sept. 24, the City of Glens Falls will host “Downtown Balloonfest” which includes a block party from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. with food and entertainment highlighted by a “candlestick moonglow” in which pilots ignite their burners, lighting up their massive balloons. More than 50 classic cars will be on hand, with live music by The Boothill Band and Bobby Dick and the Sundowners, followed by a fireworks show at 9:30 p.m. in Centennial Circle. The action at the airport includes an art show, concessions to benefit local charities, military aircraft on display, kites, a rock climbing wall for kids and church services on Sunday morning. Friday’s activities at the airport start with the launch of more than 90 balloons beginning at about 5 p.m. These afternoon flights are repeated on Saturday and Sunday. Both weekend days, morning multiple flights begin at about 6:30 a.m., preceded by breakfast served in an airport hangar, beginning at 5 a.m. Chasing balloons can be even more fun than watching them launch, and many spectators like the adventure of figuring out routes to drive in following their chosen rig. Often, spectators assist balloonists’ chase crews at touchdown time, helping fold up the massive balloons. Bring your camera because there are plenty of dramatic photo opportunities — but dogs are barred from the grounds. The festival concludes with Sunday’s late-afternoon launch, when balloons will be available for people to purchase rides.

Sure to be a hit with children at the Adirondack Balloon Festival are the seven specially-shaped craft including ‘Airhead Invader,’ flown by Fred Grotenhuis of Phillipsburg, N.J. By Thom Randall QUEENSBURY — Approaching 40 years old, the Adirondack Balloon Festival has traditionally been considered the premier event of its kind in the nation because it is so family-friendly. Spectators not only see dozens of colorful hot-air balloons take flight, but get close enough to help a pilot and crew launch theirs, which is unique among ballooning events.

This year’s event, set for Thursday Sept. 23 through Sunday Sept. 26, includes seven fancifully-shaped craft among the 100-plus balloons from across the U.S. and Canada scheduled to participate. The festival, with all activities free of charge, kicks off at 4 p.m. Thursday in Crandall Park in Glens Falls with a multiple balloon liftoff, followed by five more mass flights on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Floyd Bennett Memorial Airport in Queensbury. All flights are held

weather permitting. The specially shaped balloons include “Airhead Invader,” from Warren County, N.J. looking like a menacing space alien, and “Shroom with a View,” a cartoon mushroom flown by award-winning pilot Jeff Lansdown of the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee, who has piloted thousands of flights around the world. The airport liftoffs are so eagerly anticipated that they annually prompt people to get out of bed at 4 a.m. or earlier to get

Football action Lake George 3, Hadley-Luzerne 1 LAKE GEORGE — After being caught off-guard and losing a first game by 17 to 25, the Warriors focused their efforts and won the following three games to defeat HadleyLuzerne Sept. 15, in a 3-1 matchup.

Lake George 41, Stillwater 7 LAKE GEORGE — The Lake George football team ramped up their potent offensive attack Sept. 17 night to defeat Stillwater 41 to 7. Leading the offensive statistics for the Warriors was Marty Zivica and Matt McGowan. Zivica ran for 113 yards and three touchdowns against their Class C rival. McGowan caught two touchdown passes — the first was a 7-yarder in the first quarter, and the second was an 82-yard breakaway in the second quarter. Quarterback Willie Blunt completed six out of nine passes for 141 aerial yards and two touchdowns. The final touchdown for the Warriors, accomplished in the fourth quarter, was scored by Nate Fidd connecting with Alex Liucci for 14 yards. On defense, Zivica and Hunter Hamilton each hauled down a pair of interceptions. Lake George lived up to their aggressive reputation on the defensive line as quarterback sacks were tallied by Josh Borgh, Brad Hunt, Jack Clark and Corey Yorks. With the win, Lake George improves to 2-1.

Rensselaer 27 Warrensburg 7 WARRENSBURG — Although the Burghers fought tough in the first half to contain Rensselaer ’s defense and maintain a 76 halftime lead, the Rams unleashed an aerial attack in the second half to rebound for a 27-7 defeat. Rams quarterback Tim Foust racked up 197 aerial yards and three touchdowns for Rensselaer. Warrensburg took a 7-0 lead in the first quarter on Jeremy Barber ’s 3-yard run, followed by a successful extra-point kick by Charlie Giknis. Quarterback Mike Curtis led Warrensburg’s running game with 19 carries for 60 yards. He also was 6-for-19 passing for 100 yards. Hunter Werner hauled down three receptions for 78 yards. With the win, Rensselaer improved to 2-0 and Warrensburg dropped to 1-2.

Volleyball action Loudenville Christian 3, Lake George 1 LAKE GEORGE — The Warriors had trouble containing Loudenville Christian’s attack Sept. 20, leading to a 3-1 loss in varsity volleyball. The uncharacteristic defeat for the Warriors — their first of the 2010 season — nudged their season tally downward to 41. The game scores were 25-14, 23-25, 25-12 and 25-15. Lake George’s Courtney Casey showed her versatility in recording five points, 14 assists and 16 digs, and Katy Munzenmaier tallied six points, two kills, five digs and an ace. Kelly Flaherty added three points, one ace, four kills, five blocks and three digs; Erin Blunt had four points, one ace, four kills and eight digs; and Amanda Chambers had five points, one ace, four kills, one block, four assists and 14 digs.

Lake George 3, Corinth 0 CORINTH — Katie Munzenmaier tallied 16 points, six aces and three kills Sept. 17, in leading Lake George to their 3-0 win over Corinth.

Bolton 4, Hadley-Luzerne 2

SATURDAY September 25, 2010 team the winning margin in their victory over Salem Sept. 15. Dower was assisted by the talented Garth Griffen to take the successful shot. Kristian Seeley recorded six saves.

North Warren 2, Hadley Luzerne 1 LAKE LUZERNE — Bryan Beckler caught the HadleyLuzerne defenders off-guard by bouncing a soccer ball off his head into the goal three minutes into overtime to defeat the Eagles 2-1 Sept. 18. Garth Griffen set Beckler up for the winning play of the Adirondack League matchup. Setting the tempo for the game was Cougar Greg Dower who captured the first goal just 90 seconds into the game. Outstanding goalie Kristian Seeley recorded seven saves for North Warren.

Fort Ann 2, Bolton 1 BOLTON LANDING — Fort Ann prevailed after striking an overtime goal in a hard-fought contest Friday. Bolton’s point, scored by Billy Smith, was the first goal against Fort Ann all year. Mitchell Jordon tallied 12 saves in the loss.

North Warren 1, Corinth 1 CORINTH — After two overtime periods, North Warren and Corinth ended up locked in a 1-1 stalemate. The Tomahawks scored first in the second half off a corner kick, and North Warren’s Bryan Beckler answered back about 10 minutes later Kristian Seeley, had nine saves in the effort.

Lake George 2, Argyle 1

BOLTON LANDING — The Bolton girls soccer team showed their offensive abilities Sept. 16, as they outshot Hadley Luzerne by a margin of 32 to 6 on their way to a 4-2 victory. In the matchup, Taylor Grover scored two goals, and Liz Parker and Julie O’Donnell scored one a piece, while Olivia Seamans contributed two assists. The margin of Bolton’s victory would have been far wider, had it not been the effort of Eagles’ goalie Kristen Jones who made 23 saves.

LAKE GEORGE — Five minutes into the first overtime, Warrior Aaron Chambers scored on a head shot to secure a 21 soccer victory over Argyle Sept. 15. The game opened the Adirondack League matchups for Lake George’s 2010 season. Warriors’ Joe Farrell scored first, and Argyle answered back. Lake George goalie Ryan Moll tallied eight saves in the win.

Lake George 3, Salem 0

WARRENSBURG — Bolton goalie Mitchell Jordon scored on a penalty kick as the Eagles defeated Warrensburg 7-1 in a Sept. 15 matchup. The Burghers’ goal occurred when Jeffrey Bentham scored off one of Tyler McKinney’s signature acrobatic flip-throws. McKinney’s handspring flip that launches the ball is not only a crowd-pleaser, but it catches the Burghers’ opponents offguard. Bolton Outshot Warrensburg 14-2 in the effort. Burgher goalie Aaron Seeley tallied 8 saves.

SALEM — Emma Underwood, Jamie Jarett and Courtney Laczko scored goals as Lake George shut out Salem Sept. 16, by a margin of 3-0. The margin would have been considerably higher had the Generals’ goalie Brianna Thibeau had not accomplished 24 saves for her team. With the win, lake George advanced to 2-0 in the Adirondack league.

Lake George 1, Whitehall 0 WHITEHALL — Emma Feathers scored the game’s only goal Sept. 14, as Lake George edged Whitehall, 1-0. Feathers shook off a defender and kicked the score from about 20 feet away from the goal. Despite the low score, the game displayed Lake George’s efficient offense, as they outshot Whitehall 21-4. Had it not been for the efforts of Railroader goalie Katie Paddock and her 12 saves, the Warriors’ offensive fury would have been depicted in the score.

Boys Soccer North Warren 8, Warrensburg 1 CHESTERTOWN — North Warren combined an unrelenting offense and a stingy defense to defeat Warrensburg 8-1 Sept. 20. The victory meant their ssenior-laden team remained undefeated in the Adirondack league for 2010 with a 3-0 record. In the victory, Cougar Ethan Schenke had two goals and two assists, teammate Joe Aiken had two more goals and an assist, and Greg Dower also scored twice for North Warren. They were assisted by Chase Cortez with one goal and two assists, and Tyler Jensen with two assists. North Warren took 20 shots on goal to Warrensburg’s five. North Warren also enjoyed a 5-1 corner kick advantage. Tyler McKinney kicked the Burgher goal, and goalie Aaron Seeley tallied 10 saves.

Lake George 5, Corinth 0 LAKE GEORGE — The Warriors enjoyed a 1-0 halftime lead, but doubled their efforts in the second half and demonstrated their stamina by scoring four more to defeat Corinth Sept. 20, in a shutout win. Lake George’s depth was showcased, as five different players scored: Tom Devlin, Jackson Donnelly, Aaron Chambers, Mason Vruegde, and David Bruno — his first of the year. Lake George’s offensive onslaught included at least 35 shots on goal.

North Warren tennis team is on a roll CHESTERTOWN — The North Warren Girls Varsity Tennis team, having launched its sixth year with a group of veteran players, has tallied a 2010 season record of 2-1-1 as of Sept. 20. The tennis team has a strong lineup for 2010, with a large group of experienced players returning: seniors Abby Bruce and Alana Kilcullen; juniors Gabby Kenney, Jennifer Paris and Selena Primeau, and sophomore Abby Bradley. But they also have a not-so-secret weapon for 2010 in Laura Salonen, an exchange student from Finland. As of Monday, Salonen was the number one singles player for the Cougars, and she was 4-0 in singles play — not losing a set so far this season. Salonen has played tennis most of her life, playing nine months out of the year in her home country, Cougar coach Poul Carstensen said. “Laura is a quality player who is very strong with all aspects of her game,” he said, noting the tennis team may be gaining a new appreciation of the sport from a European standpoint. The Cougars also have three players drafted from the spring modified program: Lexi Pratt, Sierra Liebelt, and Danielle Primeau, who played co-ed modified tennis in the Adirondack League program, Carstensen said.

“This will be a great experience for them, and I am very happy with the way the have played tennis at the modified level,” Carstensen remarked. “They have worked hard over the last few years and have really improved all aspects of their game.” While Carstensen praised the players, area sports observers credit Carstensen for not only his expertise but his supportive, encouraging attitude that prompts the players to play their best — and enjoy every moment. The team’s stellar performance so far has occurred despite the loss of one of their most promising and talented players — Katie Staats, the Cougars’ top singles player for the last two years, who moved out of the school district. Staats had been with the program since it began six years ago, Carstensen said. The Cougars season opened Sept. 7, with a meet against South Glens Falls, and was the only loss the team incurred as of Monday, when the Cougars’ record stood at 2-1-1. Their second meet was against Hudson Falls, and the Cougars won it 6-1. The third was against Greenwich, which the North Warren team won 4-3. The girls tied Glens Falls Monday. This Thursday, Sept. 23, the team has a repeat match against South Glens Falls.

The 2010 North Warren girls tennis team includes (front, left to right): Jennifer Paris, Lexi Pratt, Abby Bradley, and Laura Salonen, (rear): Sierra Liebelt, Danielle Primeau, Coach Poul Carstensen, Alana Kilcullen, Gabby Kenney and Danielle Primeau.

Burgher soccer team celebrates second win in five years By Thom Randall SALEM — As the high school soccer game ended Friday, the Warrensburg players and their four or five fans on the sidelines broke into cheers. Burgher offensive standout Sean Young sprinted to the edge of the field and kissed his mother, while several of his teammates gave each other celebratory chest-bumps. Burgher Coach Brian Lemery’s father Chuck jogged to the bench and congratulated his son while he called his wife on his cell phone to share the good news. The Burgher Varsity soccer team, five years in existence, just won its second game ever, and its first this year. It was bound to happen. For years, a mob of Warrensburg Junior and Senior high schoolers were out on the soccer field in the fall sports season, kicking balls around, developing their skills and instincts. But in their scheduled games, they were competing against schools with well-established programs and winning traditions. Then late last year, a group of veterans who’d been playing together since they were young, scored an upset win over North Warren. Friday’s game against Salem, while unexpected, didn’t look like an upset. Warrensburg never trailed in the game. The Burghers kicked a first goal, and Salem answered. Ditto for another set, tying it up 2-2 at halftime. Brian Lemery gave his players a sermon during the break, telling them they’d only have one chance this season to beat any of the teams in the Adirondack’s East Division —

and it was their last opportunity for the Senior players to score a victory against Salem. “They came out on the field pumped up and scored three quick ones,” Lemery recalled Sunday. Salem, powered by the phenomenal Rolando Vigil, scored two more, but the Burghers held on for the remainder of the 15 minutes and secured the 5-4 win. In the win, Senior Burgher Sean Young scored his first hat trick. Seniors Ryan Belden and Tyler Mckinney aided with one apiece. Sophomore Jeff Bentham was a vital element with three assists. Salem’s large soccer field aided Warrensburg’s effort, as the Burghers like to get the ball wide, coach Lemery said. “Their field gave us a lot more

room to be able to run and tip the ball across to the other side,” he said. Warrensburg owns two companion statistics in the Adirondack League — one is remarkably good, and the other isn’t. As of Friday, the Burghers were leading the western division of the league in goals scored with 7, but they were also leading in goals against, at 14. Their high-scoring offense Friday was partially due to Lemery placing a third forward up front to overcome the opposing defense and create more attacking opportunities, he said. The Burgher defense this year is anchored by Aaron Seeley, who is a new goalie after being moved from fullback. A five-year veteran, Seeley is gaining confidence, Lemery said.

“Aaron is starting to get some confidence,” he said. “He really kept us in Friday’s game.” Another key element in the win against Salem was Sophomore Chris Robinson, Lemery said. The coach moved him from forward to defense to try to contain Salem’s sensational soccer player Rolando Vigil. “Robinson was on Vigil like glue, and he shut him down,” Lemery said. The next game scheduled for the Burghers is against Lake George, away. In the meantime, the Burgher soccer players have since been savoring the memories of the win, despite a tough loss Monday. “The kids were really psyched after the Salem game, Lemery said. “The energy level on the bus coming home was just insane.”
