Mayor reveals plan for Gaslight festival space Name sought for event venue By Thom Randall LAKE GEORGE — As Warren County and local officials negotiated the buyout of the town of Lake George’s interest in the Gaslight Village/West Brook Environmental Park project, it was agreed the village government would take over management of the 2.5-acre festival space which is now to be devoid of the Cavalcade of Cars building. In the negotiations, mayor Robert M. Blais proposed the village oversee the park maintenance and promote its use for events, an idea which was accepted by the county. Last week, the county approved in concept a plan which would double the village’s 19 percent stake to 38 percent in the West Brook Park and festival space after it took over the town government’s 19 percent share. For years, the village has utilized its parks, parking lots and streets to accommodate a variety of events and promote

Whether bargain hunters were seeking afghans, antiques, old Star Wars figurines, Obama trading cards or specialty tools, everything imaginable was available last weekend at Warrensburg’s World’s Largest Garage Sale, which attracted the largest crowd in recent years.

CHESTERTOWN — For nearly 60 years, Annis Holmes operated a yarn shop in Chestertown, not only selling knitting goods, but offering lessons and nurturing the craft in northern Warren County. Several months ago, Holmes, now 92 years old, retired from the business. As of a few weeks ago, however, Joanne Paulson bought the inventory of Holmes’ store, and launched her own shop. The business, named Chester Yarn Boutique, will have a grand opening this Saturday, Oct. 9, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Paulson said. “The legacy of Annis Holmes is really nice,” she said, “and I’m very happy to carry on the tradition.” The event will include refreshments, door prizes and a spinning demonstration at 1 p.m. The store is located at 5797 State Route 8 in the former Poore House Restaurant building. The entrance is in the rear of the structure. The Chester Yarn Boutique offers a wide variety of yarns now, expanded to include the natural and specialty yarns, including llama yarn, and alpaca wool. Yarn brands offered include Berroco, Cascade, Knitting Fever, Ella Rae, and locally spun specialty wools. The shop also features notions and knitting publications, including a selection of books authored by Holmes. Classes are likely to be a

options, and how they work with the state EPIC prescription program. For lunch, attendees will be bringing their own sandwiches — desserts and beverages will be provided.

Children’s Hospital fundraiser next weekend

Boards jointly mull boosted cooperation A joint meeting was held recently between the Warrensburg Central School Board of Education and the Warrensburg and Thurman town boards. They met Sept. 26, to air issues and find ways to share services to save taxpayers money. After offering each other many accolades of the good things they have done, the various board members proceeded to discuss issues that need work. Austin Markey conveyed to the boards the business community and homeowners of Warrensburg think they are over-assessed. Markey also commented the town’s legal fees have lately increased five-fold in defending challenges to the assessments, and the town officials asked the school to help pay to defend the cases, as 67 percent of the tax income saved would go to the school district. School officials responded they once helped out with the legal expenses, but the practice was abandoned several years ago during budget cutbacks, a time when assessment challenges happened to be rare. Warrensburg Town Supervisor Geraghty of Warrensburg commented, “Residents are fighting for every dollar they can keep in their pockets.” Geraghty said the average cost of litigation ranges from $2,000 to $10,000. School board president John MicGlire remarked the school board fought long and hard to keep this year’s budget down. With the decrease in state aid schools are receiving, it will be even more difficult to keep the 2011 budget in line with this year’s, he said. School board vice president Dean Moore read off a list of school board goals for 2010-2011: that every single student will graduate; for the school and the community to partner to promote high expectations through a rigorous and relevant curriculum integrating 21st century skills; for all members of the school community to promote a safe and supportive environment; for high expectations and standards to be maintained for all students; for staff to incorporate technology in their instruction; and for all students to read on or above grade level. As the meeting was about to adjourn, Warrensburg resident Tom Drane spoke up and sought to propose a way the school and town could combine services. Although rebuffed at first by MicGlire who said the meeting was not open for public comment, Drane persisted and was allowed to speak on one issue, sharing the bus garage. He said the town government needs more space to store vehicles and it was expected constructing a pole-barn building would cost the town $1 million to $1.5 million . School board member James Carrion responded that since the school is now leasing busses, some of them could stay parked outside. Supervisor Geraghty and supervisor Lawson agreed to sit down in the next few weeks and discuss the probability of the boards combining use of the school’s bus garage.

Medicare, EPIC health plans to be explained A health insurance sales representative will be making a presentation soon to area seniors to explain government-sponsored health-care reimbursement programs. The Warrensburg Fifty-Plus Club will host its monthly luncheon at noon Oct. 14, and will host Casey Bates of Blue Shield of Northeastern New York. She is expected to speak about Medicare, Medicare Advantage, and Medicare supplemental programs and

At this event, the class of 1961 will be celebrating its 50th reunion.

Flag retirement ceremony approaching The American Legion Post 446 will be holding a flag cremation ceremony Oct. 23, at the Post headquarters at 215 River St. A receptacle for torn or worn flags is at the Post for all to retire of their flags.

Congratulations from their daughters, Dawn Galusha-Hoctor of Salisbury, Md. and Cynthia Perkins of Chestertown and also much love from grand-daughter Katherine Moehringer.

Comprehensive Plan moves forward The Warrensburg Comprehensive Plan committee has been meeting with the planning firm Elan Associates for two years to produce a comprehensive plan for Warrensburg. After many monthly meetings the committee is close to finalizing the plan. One of the major objectives mentioned in the plan’s draft is increased sharing of facilities by Warrensburg Central School and the town. Although townspeople would ideally like to see a community center built, budget restraints mean maximizing the use of existing local buildings makes sense. At a recent meeting of the committee, it was suggested school facilities be available for groups and organizations to meet, for funerals or weddings and community events. The school has a policy, however, that their facilities cannot be used for individual or group profit. It was mentioned at the meeting a person or persons is needed to coordinate the use of various facilities in town and maintain a community calendar. Such facilities include various churches, Richards Library, the Masonic Hall, the town senior center, Emerson Town Hall, as well as the school’s gymnasium, cafeteria and classrooms. Sharing of recreation facilities between the town and the school now takes place with the regular use of the recreation fields Committee members also noted signage for access to the town hiking trails is needed, including identifying trails up Hackensack Mountain. Other concerns aired include development of an enhanced town-wide recycling program. The next meeting of the town Comprehensive Plan committee is set for Oct. 26, at the elementary school.

Garlic Festival Friday at farmers’ market Don’t forget to check out the Garlic Festival this Friday at Warrensburgh Riverfront Farmers Market. Many varieties of locally grown garlic are to be available Oct. 8, in the market’s weekly session from 3 to 6 p.m. The event includes cooking contests with prizes.

Police: diner attack leads to arrest Warrensburg Town Court report Sept. 22 — Judge Mindy Fisk presiding • The case of Andrea Gillingham, 33, of Burdick Avenue, Warrensburg, was adjourned to Oct. 13. She is accused of third-degree assault based on an incident occurring about 1:30 p.m. Sept. 12. According to a witness, Gillingham, a cook at Bill’s Diner, threw items out of the diner ’s refrigerator onto the floor, and a female co-worker told her to stop. Gillingham then pushed the woman against a hot cook stove and sink, then grabbed her and put her into a headlock, according to the witness. Police said Gillingham’s mother then pulled her off the victim. An order of protection was issued barring Gillingham from having contact with the woman. • A case against Amanda L. Planty, 21, of Warrensburg, was adjourned to Sept. 29. She is accused of resisting arrest in an incident Sept. 17, on Elm Street. Police said she pushed and spit at a police officer who was attempting to arrest her for aggravated harassment, a misdemeanor, for contacting Theresa Gailab on Facebook and leaving a message for her after being prohibited from contacting her, police said. • The case of John Robert Richardson, 27, of Burke Drive, Queensbury was also adjourned. He is accused of the misdemeanor charge of aggravated harassment based on a Sept. 14 incident. Police said he called a woman’s cell phone, a man answered and he threatened to burn his house down and that he was “dead.” He is also facing a similar charge based on posting a message Sept. 13 on Facebook in which he made a mortal threat and threatened to slap a woman, police said. • The case of William Szabo, 46, was adjourned to Oct. 6. He is accused of aggravated harassment based on an incident Sept. 17. Police said that within 90 minutes on that day, Szabo called a former girlfriend eight times and sent five text messages. An order of protection was issued barring him from contacting her. • Judge Mindy Fisk issued a six-month adjournment in contemplation of dismissal in the case of William J. Diamond, 42, of South Glens Falls. He had faced the misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct for a May 9 incident. That day, he played loud music and yelled obscenities out the open window of his former Main Street, Warrensburg residence, police said, despite being told by officers to quiet down and clean up his language. • The cases of Fahri Colak, Philip Deloria, Claude Kuzmiak, Wayne Kennedy Jr., John Peluso were adjourned to Oct. 6. The cases of Jeremy Barber, Pauline Buckley, Bridget Giernacky and Tyrone Tanko were adjourned to Oct. 20. The case of Laurie Kennedy was adjourned to Oct. 13. • An arrest warrant was issued for Kolby B. Semon, 25,

of Pine Street. He is facing charges of second-degree menacing. Police said at about 11 p.m. Aug. 30, he pointed an air soft pistol at a person who perceived the pistol to be a real firearm.

Sept. 15 — Judge Richard Nissen presiding • In a plea bargain, Joseph Giustino, 26, of Forest Lake Road, Warrensburg, pleaded guilty to possession of a hypodermic instrument, based on a March 4 incident. He was sentenced to a fine and surcharge totalling $405. The plea was settling a variety of charges based on a search of Giustino’s bedroom March 4 by his father Robert, who found drug scales and a hypodermic instrument and 6 “decks” of heroin in his bedroom and a baby food jar containing one gram of marijuana in his closet, according to police. Originally, he was charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, use of drug paraphernalia, possession of a hypodermic instrument and possession of marijuana in this case. Giustino was also arrested in July on a charge of possession of a hypodermic instrument and aggravated unlicensed operation based on a July traffic stop, for which he received a conditional discharge, but was later charged with violating the discharge. On Sept. 15, the charge of violation of conditional discharge was withdrawn by Judge Nissen, but $990 in fines and surcharges based on that court decision are still due. • The case of Amanda Planty, 21, of Sanford Street, Warrensburg, was adjourned to Sept. 29. She is facing misdemeanor charges of resisting arrest, harassment, and disorderly conduct. Police said that on Aug. 30, Planty was standing in the parking lot of the Warrensburg Commons apartment complex, and she yelled an obscenity at a county sheriff ’s patrol officer — with several children standing in the area. When he sought to arrest her for disorderly conduct, she fought back and slapped him in the face, leading to the other two charges. • The case of Kolby B. Semon, 25, of Pine Street, Corinth was adjourned to Sept. 22. He is facing charges of seconddegree menacing. Police said that at about 11 p.m. Aug. 30 he pointed an air soft pistol at a person who perceived the pistol to be a real firearm. • The case of Arie Kaplan of Montreal was adjourned to Sept. 29. She is facing a misdemeanor charge of third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, based on a traffic stop 10:53 a.m. Aug. 20, on the Northway.

•100 Years Ago – October, 1910•

road tracks at the crossing near the Thomson switch, just above The Glen, Oct. 1, 1910, just as the morning train came along.

Old well swallows child, rescue a success An abandoned well containing about five feet of water, caught a child in its clutches, and the child nearly escaped death Oct. 3 1910. The well was loosely covered with boards under the spreading branches of a heavily laden apple tree on the premises of George T. Lockwood adjoining The Warrensburgh News building, and it formed a trap. On her way to school just before 9 o’clock, Janet Straight, 8, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W.H. Straight, was seized with apple hunger and stopped to gather some from the tempting tree while her companion Muriel Harrison kept on walking to school. No one else was in sight when the rotted boards over the well upon which the child was standing suddenly gave way and she dropped like a plummet more than 20 feet to the bottom of the well with two apples in each hand. She was able to keep her head above the ice-cold water and being weighted down, she removed her heavy astrakhan coat. Her sturdy cries were not heard and she threw the apples up and out of the well hoping that they would be seen. Michael O’Connor of the Adirondack Hotel (now Rite Aid property) sauntered over the street to the Lockwood property for a chat with Patrick Haley who was working in his garden and as he passed the well, heard the child’s cries. He ran back to the hotel for a rope and a big crowd quickly gathered. Janet placed the slip-noose around her waist and was drawn to the surface no worse for wear after her icy bath. (Note…The Straight family lived in the house across the street from the stone building just north of Grace’s Restaurant. The Warrensburgh News was located in the now-vacant lot south of the same restaurant that was than the summer home of Dr. Cyrus S. Merrill and family.)

Both horses were struck and one was instantly killed while the other was thrown 32 feet and was so badly injured that it was expected to die. The horses were valued at $400. Mr. Hewitt and his son, Daniel who accompanied him, were not injured.

He was a veteran of the Civil War and participated in many of the big battles. At Spottsylvania he was severely wounded. After lying on the field of battle all night he was found in the morning shot to pieces with just a tiny spark of life apparent. For many weary weeks he fought bravely for his life and eventually won. Seven weeks ago he had a stroke of paralysis and was barely conscious near the end of his days. The funeral was held at St. Cecilia’s Church.

Man didn’t seek doctor’s advice

Young lady mourned

Alfred Tucker, 38, a well-known resident of Stony Creek, dropped dead Sept. 8, 1910 of heart disease near his home. Mr. Tucker suffered two or three attacks of heart trouble, and in one of them, last March he fell senseless down stairs all the way to the bottom where he was revived by his wife with considerable difficulty. He was advised to seek medical aid but refused to do so. He leaves a widow, a nine-year-old daughter and a 19-yearold step-daughter.

Miss Sarah Hill, 17, daughter of Seneca Hill, died at her home at Friends Lake Sept. 19, 1910 after a few hours illness. A rupture of a blood vessel was the cause of her death. Besides her parents, she leaves two brothers and two sisters. She was a very popular young lady and had many friends who mourn her untimely death. Burial was in the Chestertown Cemetery.

Sent home to die George Nichols, 41, died at his home in Chestertown on Sunday morning, Sept. 25, 1909 after an illness of three months with kidney troubles. He was in the Albany Hospital for treatment but he was finally told that his case was hopeless and he was sent home. Survived by a widow and two sons, Royal and Edgar Nichols, he was buried in the Chestertown Cemetery.

David Bean deceased An old and highly respected resident of Warrensburgh, David W. Bean, 69, died Sept. 22, 1909 at the home of his only child, Charles W. Bean. Born in Clintonville in early 1841, he became a resident of Chestertown for a number of years and 25 years ago he came to Warrensburgh and engaged in the jewelry business here. A genial likable man, children especially loved him and will mourn his death. Largest Garage Sale. It is a great service that they perform — being ready in a emergency to assist people in need. My concern, however, is that they are driving ATVs and UTVs on public highways, disregarding the rules that apply to everyone else. They are in traffic without helmets. I stopped a local county sheriff ’s officer and was told that they have some “special arrangement” with the town that allows them to break the law. But in the event of an accident, there is no way that any arrangement will pay the medical expenses or funeral arrangements for someone injured. Everyone is a teacher to our youngsters, and this action is teaching the wrong lesson. At best, it is demonstrating that adults can break the law and creating a double standard to live by. It seems that such obvious hypocrisy is unconscionable. No wonder the young are confused. Tom Lewis Warrensburg

Return the grave items To the editor: I read in the journal I received today about others who have had items stolen that were placed on graves at the Warrensburg cemetery. My daughter Randi Evans passed away on July 25. I spent a week driving around to different stores to find just the right decorations for my daughter ’s grave. Randi loved holidays and celebrating. She was a child at heart. This is the only thing I can do for my daughter now. Within a few days of me lovingly placing the items at my daughter ’s grave, someone stole everything. This was my first time placing anything. I couldn't believe it! What has happened to mankind? Randi was the most honest, innocent, loving soul you could ever meet. Why did you do this to my sweet angel? Do you know how much I love my daughter? Do you know how much this hurt me and the rest of our family? Please return the items! Thank you.

Buzzard discrimination Lorenzo Tripp of Riverbank recently shot near his home a turkey buzzard that had a wingspan of 6 feet. The bird was chasing a chicken when Tripp brought it down with a charge of shot from his reliable old gun. It is seldom that these birds are seen in the north and Tripp, a veteran of the late unpleasantness (Civil War), says he has never seen one since he was in Virginia in 1862. They are carrion birds and are much despised by many as a common nuisance in southern and western states. (Note…I dearly love to see a flock of five or six turkey buzzards perched in the trees in my dooryard. After they have checked the place out, they all leave together on cue looking like magnificent gliders with their huge wingspans as they sail across the Schroon River. I can’t imagine how anyone could hate such a beautiful creature or to kill one.) Readers are welcome to contact Adirondack Journal correspondent Jean Hadden at or 623-2210

DEC From page 1 Reacting to the news, State Assemblywoman Teresa Sayward, R-Willsboro, said DEC is already understaffed and further cuts could cripple the regulatory agency. ”We’re seeing right now that roads will be closed that typically wouldn’t be closed to our hunters. We have so many issues with DEC as it is,” she said. “We just can’t suffer one more cut.” Jessica Bassett, spokeswoman for the Office of the Budget, offered a conservative estimate of potential layoffs. “That can be layoffs, it can be attrition, it can be regular retirements that happen between now and the end of the year,” she said. “But layoffs are one way to get that 87 reduction.” The position eliminations will only boost the loss of 272 DEC employees recently shed as a result of the recent state retirement incentive program. Tuesday was the last day of work for those who accepted the buyout. The additional forced layoffs and position eliminations have been initiated because the response to the retirement incentive package fell short of state officials’ expectations. Bassett said state agency commissioners were just notified of the further reductions this week. She added the local impacts of the cuts to DEC are still unknown. “The agencies just got their targets on Monday and Tuesday so agencies and the budget division are working together on how to make those reductions,” she said. There’s also some confusion about how the workforce reductions will impact the Adirondack Park Agency. Bassett said the plan will require the elimination of another three positions at the agency. These cuts would be on top of the cuts already made during last spring’s state budgeting process that forced the closure of the APA-run visitor interpretive centers. She said the APA workforce would be reduced to 56 employees. Regardless of the exact number of eliminations — especially at DEC—the cuts have local leaders and environmentalists concerned. Besides her protest over the DEC cuts, Sayward said she doesn’t think the elimination of another three APA jobs is appropriate either. “I hear from people all the time, the difficulty of getting answers and the turn-around time at the Adirondack Park Agency,” she said. “I would only guess that with fewer employees, it’s only going to get worse.” Adirondack Council executive director Brian Houseal said he was also concerned. “We have no idea how it’s going to impact the Forest Preserve,” he said. Assuming the budget office’s figures prove accurate, the total workforce reduction will reduce DEC’s statewide ranks to 2,926 employees. The Civil Service Employees Association has already filed a suit against Paterson because of the layoffs. Paterson argues he had no choice but to layoff state employees, because the employee unions would not accept concessions in order to achieve the $250 million workforce savings he was seeking. The state remains in a current-year multi-billion dollar budget deficit. The reduction of another 2,000 employees equates to about 1 percent of the state workforce.

Sale’s 23 tons of trash underscore the weekend’s success By Thom Randall WARRENSBURG — In the wake of the tens of thousands of shoppers annually visiting the World’s Largest Garage Sale, there’s traditionally been tens of thousands of pounds of trash left behind each year. This year was one of the larger hauls — which testifies to the Sale’s success and substantial crowds, estimated at anywhere from 75,000 to 150,000 people. This year, there were 181 steel trash barrels set out, and when the Sale concluded, they were stuffed with trash. Most all of the drums, emptied several times during the weekend, were surrounded by hulking cardboard boxes and giant trash bags filled with additional refuse, including discarded items, food waste, and packing material. Wally Ross of Warrensburg — assisted by Chris Nemec, Robbie Sweet, Lennie Baker — worked through Sunday night to clean up the littered lots, stuff-strewn sidewalks and streets, in addition to emptying the barrels. The haul amounted to 64 dump-truck loads, or 16 percent more rubbish than last year ’s 55 dump truck loads.. That volume amounts to 23.4 tons, or about 3.4 tons more than last year. Ross reported Tuesday that the haul, unlike in past years, did not include much discarded merchandise including glassware, plates mirrors and some jewelry and household goods with value, as was left behind in prior years. Some said Tuesday the 2010 vendors were less apt to throw leftover wares away due to the economy, while others cited folks scavenging for anything of value. Ross said his crew did not pick up a refrigerator or baby car seats like in recent years, but they did haul away a bed, a sink and two dressers. The volume was the best in several years, but not as high as the record haul a half-dozen years ago, when the trash amounted to 92 dump-truck loads over the weekend. “We had a very large crowd this year,” Ross said. “Saturday was unbelievable — we took away 26 loads Saturday alone, and it was hard to maneuver through the streets.” Ross said the backups were frustrating. “The traffic was terrible-- you couldn’t go anywhere,” he added. But for Cheryl Kenyon, president of the Warrensburg Chamber of Commerce which sponsors the sale, Wally’s hardships were an inspiring, welcome aspect of the great Sale’s unexpected success. “The vendors had a phenomenal weekend,” she said. “We even know that some of them pulled out of town Sunday morning, because they already sold out of their goods.”


Sale From page 1 sales activity at the great townwide garage sale, but it created a critical problem for Brennan. Their van had skidded and sunk in the mud up on the hillside at Oscar’s Meat’s, and nearly flipped onto its side, but a local tow truck operator righted their rig. While Brennan’s crew were working at warp speed to set up notions, dozens of other venders were racing the clock to prepare displays of their wares in the streets that even hosted a few browsers before dawn. In only a few hours, the streets were swamped with people from near and far, concentrating on bargain shopping at the hundreds of commercial concessions, and as many as 1,000 private garage sales that saw steady crowds all weekend. The sales stretched south to Lake George and north toward Chestertown. By late morning, traffic was backed up out of Warrensburg to the Northway, and crowds jammed the sidewalks, street shoulders and yards. While many were lured to the area by the sale’s reputation and had no idea what to expect, Jeff and Bonnie French of North Bangor, near Minerva, were well-prepared. Veterans of the great garage sale, Jeff French had 10 years ago welded up a long industrial-strength cart he could pile with his new-found treasures, push for miles, and make it back to his camper. He made it specifically to haul away bargains at the sale, and he’s used it every year this decade. Saturday, his homemade steel cart was brimming with a drill press, a bike for his grandson, a stereo, a car booster seat and dozens of household items as he pushed it down Hudson Street. “Believe me, we’ve only just started shopping,” he said. Down on Main Street, Bonnie and Robin Dexter and Kim Allen carried their sale spoils in a factory-made cart, stuffed with a folding stool, a knock-off designer pocketbook, towels, blankets and socks, books and necklaces, a few stuffed animals and a Red Sox wastebasket. They’d already eaten the fudge they bought from the “Fudge Lady” a half-mile north in town. “This is our vacation spot — we come here every year,” Robin Dexter said on behalf of the trio, which stayed the weekend nights at the Surfside Motel in Lake George, but spent their days at the garage sale. Upstreet, the Fudge Lady, Rosalie Lyon and her husband Kurt of Jack’s Reef, said business was robust as Kurt dished out samples of dozens of flavors of homemade fudge. They ought to know, as this is their 10th year at the sale. “We’ve seen fewer Jersey people this year, but it’s a really good crowd,” Kurt Lyon said. By early afternoon Friday, they’d sold 500 pounds or so. They sold a few ounces of their confection to Warrens-

burg town board member John Alexander, who stopped by for a treat. A few hours earlier, he had flown his plane over Warrensburg to assess the crowd. “From the skies, it was mob scene — it was just unbelievable,” he said, noting the persistent rain Thursday and Friday delayed the shopping frenzy that was unleashed with Saturday’s sun. Walking past Alexander was Stephen Erickson of Averill Park. He was carrying an electric guitar in a case for his son, also named Stephen, who was walking beside him. They had not only found the guitar at a rock-bottom price, but they picked up an “Electric Project Lab,” a handcrafted rubber-band gun, a few videos, and a real hand grenade. In recent years, the two found a cannonball and a musket for their collection of authentic military items, plus some collectible Star Wars weapons. Every year, the young Erickson loads up on Pokemon cards, the elder Erickson said. A few blocks south, Shari Quinn of Portsmouth Va. was selling magnetic bookmarks as she has for many years. She reported sales were far better than last year, although some shoppers were likely to be conservative with their money. “We look forward to this every year — I enjoy seeing all the people,” she said. Upstreet, a crowd of people were examining a vast display of handmade jewelry items, crafted by Linda O’Neill of Warrensburg, featuring natural gemstones and rocks. At times on Saturday, she had a long line of people waiting in line to pay for rings, necklaces, pendants and other items. “We’ve been swamped,” she said. “We’ve had very good crowds here this year.” On Sunday afternoon, when cold weather set in, she sat by a raditor set up by her husband David, who was in the late 1970s, the first woodstove manufacturer-dealer situated in Warrensburg in modern times. He and his employee John Saye were in the adjacent spot demonstrating O’Neill’s auto-feed coal furnace some say operates at far lower cost than other furnaces. Streetside, it was delivering a blast of warm air into his wife’s jewelry tent. “My husband takes good care of me,” Linda O’Neill said. A few hours later, Michael Brennan and his crew were taking down their tents that covered two large plots downtown, and an equal-size space uptown at Oscar’s. “Saturday was a monster,” Brennan said, noting that term was a superlative used by professional vendors to describe lucrative, crowded “shows.” “It was just unbelievable,” his assistant Blake Wilson added as they packed up to go to the Covered Bridge Festival, scheduled for this weekend in Indiana. Wilson looked at the dozens and dozens of empty bins that had been stuffed with merchandise. “We made a lot of money,” he said.

Home rentals, light industry mulled for village

SATURDAY October 9, 2010

Creativity Conference returns to Lake George

By Thom Randall

Registration deadline Oct. 8 LAKE GEORGE — As more and more homes in the village are being bought up to be converted into short-term rental properties, the village town board has decided to draft a law that would allow such a practice in particular zones in the village. The short term rentals, which mayor Robert M. Blais said has raised concern among some residents, will be prohibited in Single Family Residential zones, but allowed in areas with more inclusive use regulations, including Residential Mixed-Use, Commercial Mixed-Use, and Commercial Resort zones. Also, the board has decided to allow for light industrial operations to be sited in the village in Commercial Resort zones, or with limitations in Commercial Mixed-Use areas. On Oct. 4, the board set a public hearing on these two issues. The hearing is set for 7 p.m. Oct. 18, when a proposal on the dissolution of the village will again be considered. Now, short-term rentals of homes in not formally allowable in the village, as any land-use not specified in the village code book is technically prohibited, village clerk-treasurer Darlene Gunther said. The idea of allowing light industrial activity was raised last week when John Carr of the Adirondack Pub & Brewery said he’d like to start a modest beer bottling operation in the former laundromat directly behind a restaurant he owns, Moose Tooth Grill on Canada Street.

LAKE GEORGE — “Creativity: Let It Be Life,” is the second conference presented by the Creativity Coaching Association for artists, entrepreneurs, creativity coaches and all who seek to enhance their creative abilities and expand their influence. The conference is open to everyone, especially those who are ready to embrace their creative nature, according to Beverly Down, a creativity coach based in Lake George who is organizing the event. “Bring your curiosity, your questions and your creativity,” she said. “This will be a weekend of engaging speakers, workshops and activities that will allow participants to meet, grow and network with other creative types.” Down said the conference is not geared solely for the artis-

tic or those currently working in a creative field. “We’re encouraging everyone from entrepreneurs to students and would-be creators to attend because creativity is built into your DNA …whether you recognize it or not.” The conference, to be held Oct. 15-17, at Fort William Henry, includes accommodations, meals, an art show, creativity resource room, a scenic fall boat ride, and live entertainment by Rich Ortiz. Down said a special day pass is being offered for New York residents Saturday, Oct. 16. For $69, participants will get a choice of two workshops, a luncheon buffet, afternoon refreshments, plus access to the art show and networking events. The reservation deadline is Oct. 8. To register, visit and activate the 2010 conference link.

new ones. Annually, Americade, Adirondack Nationals Car Show, Eastern States Tow Truck Show, Lake George Area boat dealers, three craft shows and several music festivals are among those that regularly use village properties. Blais told county supervisors he anticipates revenues from renting the festival space will initially cover the county’s and village’s cost of maintaining the park, estimated to be about $33,000 annually. Town officials endorsed a

buyout of their share of the project for $210,000 because they have estimated the project will not generate revenue to meet expenses after the main selling point of the space, the Cavalcade of Cars building, is torn down and replaced with 18 grassy parking spaces. Tourism experts publicly said they were enthusiastic about marketing the festival space, which is now to be a field. Privately, they said marketing an event venue on the space would generate more revenue and bring more economic activity into the village. Blais said the village board will devise plans to market the space with the help of Michael Consuelo of the Lake George Regional Convention and Visitors Bureau. Elvis Festivals; an Oktoberfest; cars, trucks, and trailer shows; a circus; and

music festivals should all be interested in using the space. Blais said initial plans may call for leaving the concrete floor of the Cavalcade of Cars in place, while erecting lighting and appropriate “Welcome” signage and a marquee. But Peter Bauer of The Fund for Lake George said last week the pad and its footing would be entirely removed. The final agreement, however, which covers such details, had yet to be signed as of Tuesday. A rest room building, constructed with grant funding, should be able to service both the park and festival space, Blais said. A new entrance off Beach Road will also be constructed to encourage pedestrians to visit the site. Blais said he envisions the village will retrofit its exist-

ing portable stage to accommodate musical groups on the festival space as well. Users will be charged based on what similar open spaces charge as well as for utilizing additional services such as electricity, staging, security, garbage collection, etc. The village also anticipates using the space to park vehicles during their fireworks shows, holiday weekends and other special events. “I believe the location near our beautiful lake, along with the name recognition of Lake George and our variety of accommodations, will encourage new events to use the space,” the mayor said. Blais said he is also seeking to choose an appropriate name for the festival space, and he encourages citizens to submit suggestions to village officials.

InBrief Don’t leave children unattended at library WARRENSBURG — Richards Library is now reaffirming the fact that young children should not be dropped off at the library without supervision. A problem with unattended children has persisted during school-day afternoons. The library welcomes those who study, read, use the computer, do research and use the facilities wisely, but does not have the staff on hand to perform daycare, baby-sitting duties or operate a “latchkey” center for pre-teens or teenagers.The library is not responsible for the welfare of children who are left unattended. Parents are strongly urged to accompany their children, especially youngsters, on their visits. This includes the library outside property as well. The staff is not licensed to perform child care. In situations where it is necessary to reach a parent or responsible adult and no one is available, the police will be called for the safety of the child. Copies of the policy referring to state Social Service Law, for dealing with unruly students are available at the library.

FORT ANN — In the rolling farm fields just outside Fort Ann is a newly built state of the art equestrian facility nestled in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains. Appropriately named, Adirondack Foothills Equine recently welcomed a new barn manager and unveiled a lesson program. Owner George Thomas will publicly welcome barn manager Jeff Vroman at the barn’s open house scheduled for Oct. 9 - 10. Located at 116 County Route 17A in Comstock, the open house will feature demonstrations, wagon rides, mini lessons, tours, a gymkhana on Saturday at 6 p.m., a tack auction by JP North and a ranch sorting event Sunday at 1 p.m. Everyone at Adirondack Foothills Equine is excited to welcome Vroman to the barn, according to Thomas. “He brings experience in overall management in the daily care and health of boarder and lesson horses as well as business knowledge in the operations of running a successful facility,” he said. Vroman is a Warrensburg native and has returned home after spending time in North Carolina and Ohio. Before Adirondack

Foothills, he ran Oxford Farms and River Hallow Farm, both in Ohio. “I am very excited to be back home with my family and to work at a new equestrian facility,” he said. “I hope I can work with the owners, instructors and trainers to develop a solid program.” The open house will also provide patrons with an opportunity to sign up for lessons with one of Adirondack Foothills’ instructors or trainers. English and western discipline lessons at beginner through advanced levels are offered on one of the horses in Adirondack Foothills’ lesson herd or on private horses. Adults and children alike are welcome to sign up and learn to improve their riding no matter what level they will begin at. Sign up for two hour-long lessons at $30 apiece at the open house and receive one free. Contact Vroman at 538-0202 to set up a lesson or for mor information on lessons and training. Aside from lessons and training, Adirondack Foothills Equine also offers boarding, trail riding, events and clinics on its 270 acres of land. The property boasts a 70 foot by 134 foot indoor riding arena as well as outdoor arenas and round pens. “We hope that people from all over the North Country feel welcome to stop by the open house and take a look at what we have to offer,” said Thomas.

N AT I O N A L breast cancer awareness M O NT H

These sponsors proudly support National Breast Cancer Awareness Month:

About Breast Cancer... Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in the United States, aside from skin cancer. According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), an estimated 192,370 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed among women in the United States this year.Today, there are about 2.5 million breast cancer survivors living in the United States. If you’re worried about developing breast cancer, or if you know someone who has been diagnosed with the disease, one way to deal with your concerns is to get as much information as possible. In this section you’ll find important background information about what breast cancer is and how it develops.

Signs and Symptoms Although widespread use of screening mammograms has increased the number of breast cancers found before they cause any symptoms, some breast cancers are not found by mammograms, either because the test was not done or because even under ideal conditions mammograms do not find every breast cancer. The most common sign of breast cancer is a new lump or mass. A mass that is painless, hard, and has irregular edges is more likely to be cancerous, but breast cancers can be tender, soft, or rounded. For this reason, it is important that any new mass, lump, or breast change is checked by a health care professional with experience in diagnosing breast diseases.

Other possible signs of breast cancer include: • swelling of all or part of a breast (even if no distinct lump is felt) • skin irritation or dimpling • breast or nipple pain • nipple retraction (turning inward) • redness, scaliness, or thickening of the nipple or breast skin • a nipple discharge other than breast milk Sometimes a breast cancer can spread to underarm lymph nodes and cause a lump or swelling there, even before the original tumor in the breast tissue is large enough to be felt. Swollen lymph nodes should also be reported to your doctor

The importance of finding breast cancer early Most doctors feel that early detection tests for breast cancer save many thousands of lives each year, and that many more lives could be saved if even more women and their health care providers took advantage of these tests. Following the American Cancer Society’s guidelines for the early detection of breast cancer improves the chances that breast cancer can be diagnosed at an early stage and treated successfully.

To schedule your mammogram at The Breast Center at Glens Falls Hospital, please call (518) 926-5333. To schedule your mammogram at The Greenwich Regional Medical Center, please call (518) 926-4945.

These sponsors proudly support National Breast Cancer Awareness Month:

Breast Cancer Q & A Provided by National Breast Cancer Awareness Month Q: What is cancer? A: Cancer is a disease that occurs when cells become abnormal and divide without control or order. Each organ in the body is made up of various kinds of cells. Cells normally divide in an orderly way to produce more cells only when they are needed. This process helps keep the body healthy. If cells divide when new cells are not needed, they form too much tissue. This extra tissue, called a tumor, can be benign or malignant. Benign tumors are not cancer. Eighty percent of all breast tumors are benign. They can usually be removed, and, in most cases, they don’t come back. Most important, the cells in benign tumors do not invade other tissues and do not spread to other parts of the body. Benign breast tumors are not life-threatening. Malignant tumors are cancer. The cancer cells grow and divide out of control, invading and damaging nearby tissues and organs. Cancer cells can also break away from the original tumor and enter the bloodstream or lymphatic system. This is how breast cancer spreads and forms secondary tumors in other parts of the body. This spread of cancer is called metastasis. Q: What is breast cancer? A: Breast cancer is cancer that forms in tissues of the breast, usually the ducts (tubes that carry milk to the nipple) and lobules (glands that make milk). It occurs in both men and women, although male breast cancer is rare. Q: How common is breast cancer in the United States?

A: Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, aside from skin cancer.

chemotherapy aims to destroy the cancer cells that may have spread throughout the body.

Q: What is advanced breast cancer?

Newer experimental treatments include biologically targeted therapies which currently, are only available through clinical trials. A patient and his/her physician will choose the treatment that is right for him/her, based on the location and extent of the cancer, patient’s age and preferences, and the risks and benefits of each treatment.

A: Breast cancer is considered advanced when it has spread from its original site to distant areas of the body. Physicians will look at a number of factors to determine the stage of breast cancer, including tumor size, lymph node involvement, and whether the cancer has spread to other areas of the body. Once the stage of the disease is determined, there are two different ways advanced breast cancer can be classified: locally advanced or metastatic. Q: What is locally advanced breast cancer? A: The term locally advanced breast cancer indicates that the cancer is large (greater than 2 inches) or may have spread to other nearby tissue, such as underarm lymph nodes. Locally advanced breast cancer is considered Stage III, and if it is operable, it is referred to as Stage IIIA. Q: What is metastatic breast cancer? A: The term metastatic breast cancer indicates that the cancer has spread from the breast to other parts of the body such as bone, lung, liver, or brain.

Treatmentsf or Breast Cancer Q: What are the treatments for breast cancer? A: The basic treatment choices for breast cancer are surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, and hormonal therapy, which may or may not be included in the treatment regimen, depending on hormonal involvement in the growth of the tumor. Local treatments such as breast surgery and radiation therapy are focused on the breast itself to remove or destroy the cancer cells confined to the breast. Systemic treatment such as

Surgery may be performed to remove the cancerous tumor, and may also be performed to allow for diagnostic testing of tumort issue. Radiation therapy uses penetrating beams of high-energy waves or streams of particles to kill and hinder the growth of cancer cells. In metastatic disease, radiation is most commonly used to treat symptoms in breast cancer that has spread to the bone. Chemotherapy may be used if it is believed the breast cancer will not respond to hormonal treatment. Chemotherapy is the use of drugs that target and destroy rapidly dividing cells, including cancer cells. It is frequently used in metastatic breast cancer and used in locally advanced breast cancer to shrink the tumor and make it operable. Hormonal therapy can be used to slow the growth, spread, and recurrence of breast cancer. If the cancer is found to be of the type that may be sensitive to estrogen, hormonal treatment may be able to keep estrogen from helping the cancer cells to grow and divide. The presence of estrogen receptors (a message-carrying protein that may stimulate tumor growth) in the cancerous tumor is the best way to predict a woman’s response to hormonalt reatment.

RiskF actors for Breast Cancer Age, individual and family medical history, reproductive history, genetic alterations, race, economic status, environmental exposures to pollutants, and lifestyle habits are all examples of the factors that can be evaluated. Having one or two of these risk factors doesn’t mean a woman will develop breast cancer. But knowing her personal risk factor profile and understanding what it means will help her and her doctor plan a course of action that may reduce her chances of developing the disease or, at least, to detect it in its earliest, most treatable stages.

The most common risk factors: Sex. The highest risk factor for breast cancer is being female; the disease is about 100 times more common among women. Age. The risk of breast cancer increases as a woman grows older. The risk is especially high for women age 60 and older. PersonalH istory. Women who have had breast cancer and women with a history of breast disease (not cancer, but a condition that may predispose them to cancer) may develop it again. FamilyH istory. The risk of developing breast cancer increases for a woman whose mother, sister, daughter, or two or more close relatives have had the disease. The Breast Cancer Genes. Some individuals, both women and men, may be born with an “alteration” (or change) in one of two genes that are important for regulating breast cell growth. Individuals who inherit an alteration in the BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene are at an “inherited” higher risk for breast cancer. They also may pass this alteration on to their children. It is very rare. Women with a family history of breast cancer are encouraged to speak to a genetics counselor to determine the pros and cons of genetic testing.

Having an early menarche (first period or menstrual bleeding). Women who begin menstruating before age 12 are at increased risk of developing breast cancer.

Eat fresh fruits and vegetables. In addition to their fiber content, fruits and vegetables have antioxidant properties and micronutrients that may help prevent some cancers.

Having a first pregnancy after age 25 or 35. Althoughe arly pregnancies may help lower the chances of getting breast cancer, particularly before the age of 25, these same hormonal changes after age 35 may contribute to the incidence of breast cancer.

Limita lcohol. Evidence suggests that a small increase in risk exists for women who average two or more drinks per day (beer, wine, and distilled liquor).

Having no children. Women who experience continuous menstrual cycles until menopause are at a higher than average risk. Use of Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT). Based on the Women’s Health Initiative Study (2002), women do appear to have an increased risk of breast cancer while they are on HRT and a short time thereafter, compared to those who have never used postmenopausal HRT. Use of Oral Contraceptives (OCs) and Breast Cancer. Current or former use of OCs among women ages 35 to 64 did not significantly increase the risk of breast cancer.

Other risk factors - and lifestyle choices to avoid them

Staya ctive. The U.S. Surgeon General has recently reported that you can help prevent many health problems by engaging in a moderate amount of physical activity (such as taking a brisk, 30-minute walk) on most days of the week. Strive to maintain the body weight recommended by a health professional, since excess fat may stimulate estrogen production. Don’ts moke. Although smoking doesn’t cause breast cancer, it can increase the chance of blood clots, heart disease, and other cancers that may spread to the breast.

Early Detection Plan Beginning at age 20: Performing breast self-exams and looking for any signs of change. Age 20 to 39: Scheduling clinical breast exams every three years.

Day-to-day choices involve factors such as poor diet, insufficient physical activity, alcohol use, and smoking. Besides possibly reducing breast cancer risk, lifestyle improvements represent smart steps for a healthier life, since they can help prevent heart disease, diabetes, and many other chronic, lifethreateningc onditions. Decrease your daily fat intake - especially saturated or hydrogenatedf ats. Eat leaner meats and limit red meat. Reducing your fat intake helps prevent other health problems such as heart disease and stroke and may reduce your chance of developing breast and colon cancers. Increase fiber in your diet. Fiber is found in whole grains, vegetables, and fruits. This type of diet is beneficial for your heart and can help prevent other cancers such as colon cancer.

By the age of 40: Having a baseline mammogram and annual clinical breast exams. Ages 40 to 49: Having a mammogram every one to two years depending on previous findings. Ages 50 and older: Having a mammogram every year.

Area G.O.P. split on Paladino candidacy ALBANY — While some North Country Republicans are actively backing the gubernatorial candidacy of Carl Paladino, others are distancing themselves from him. Paladino’s blunt campaign style — focused on steamrolling anyone or anything standing in his way — is gaining momentum with a fed-up electorate. Backed by prevailing anti-establishment sentiments and Tea Party ground forces, Paladino’s anger-driven campaign and divisive rhetoric are forcing Republican officials and incumbents to make an uncomfortable decision. The choice is either to keep Paladino at arm’s length or actively support a man who has called Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver a Nazi and accused Gov. David A. Paterson of continued drug use. Assemblywoman Teresa Sayward, R-Willsboro is taking a wait-and-see approach with the Paladino’s candidacy. Sayward said while she would never work against Paladino’s bid, she’s keeping him at arm’s length — especially considering his very conservative stances on social issues like abortion. “God knows all we want to do is to live our lives and for government to stay out of it and if Carl can take some of that back, all the better,” she said. “Do I have concerns? Yes. We’ve come too far with some of the social issues to back up to a point where it will take another generation to get us back to where we were.” Paladino has also promised to take a baseball bat to the ever-dysfunctional state capitol. Republican state Sen. Elizabeth O’C Little, R-Queensbury, said she has yet to meet Paladino. She said he’s riding a wave of voter negativity about the dysfunction of state govern-

“People are pretty sick about what’s been going on down there and there’s a lot of people willing to find out if that will work or not.” Last week, Paladino got into an epic throw-down with New York Post Albany editor Fred Dicker, when the antagonistic journalist pushed him on an accusation he’s made about Cuomo. Paladino claimed post photographers had been stalking his illegitimate 10-year-old daughter — an assertion Dicker denies. Paladino’s candidacy also poses questions for the future of New York’s Republican Party. Once a centrist organization of Rockefeller moderates, now Tea Party activists and divisive social issues are fracturing the party. And the centrist and unopposed Sayward has noticed. “I’m awfully glad I don’t have competition this year because I think that if there was any year that ‘throw the bums out’ was the mantra, it’s this year,” she said. Many political observers are wondering if a rightist GOP can even stay afloat in ever-blue New York State. The GOP has even lost its foothold on upstate Congressional districts that were once Republican strongholds. And for Sayward, it may be time for something new. “We know that in life, the answer lives in the middle. You can’t just have this butting of heads all of the time — you just can’t,” Sayward said. “You can have different ideas, but at the end of the day — if there’s an issue that’s important statewide — there has to be compromise.” Sayward said a centrist third party could draw moderates from members of both parties that continually march toward the political extremes. She notes it could potentially prompt more of one of the hardest things to come by in Albany — compromise.

ment. Little added Paladino has to get specific. “Cutting 20 percent of government sounds like a good idea, but how would you do it? Would it be in aid to schools that would cause property taxes to go up? We need to talk about those things,” she said. She argued the mudslinging coming from the Paladino camp isn’t going to fix the rampant dysfunction in Albany. “You have to be willing to work and form partnership and really negotiate to get things done,” Little said. “Right now, we are seeing a lot of negativity in the campaign, which I think needs to be transformed into positive ideas.” Sayward isn’t sure Paladino’s fire-and-brimstone approach will actually accomplish much in Albany. “You really do believe with all of your heart that you can go to Albany and make change happen immediately,” she said. “But that just doesn’t happen. New York is a huge state, it’s diverse in culture and class. What’s important in New York and Buffalo isn’t often important in the North Country.” The Essex County Republican Committee, like most in the state, backed Rick Lazio for governor. The party didn’t even let Paladino speak last spring at its state convention. But the county’s GOP cchairman Ron Jackson said Paladino’s style has hit on something with frustrated voters. Jackson said he will work hard to see Paladino defeat front-runner and Democratic heir-apparent Andrew Cuomo. “I don’t know Carl very well but he sure is intriguing,” Jackson said. “He’s a strange person in a lot of ways.” Several recent polls have shown Cuomo’s once-insurmountable lead dwindle under the barrage of insults and accusations thrown by the Paladino camp. Polls have Cuomo’s lead down to less than 20 percentage points. Jackson said it may be Paladino’s bizarre behavior that is winning over a general-public inundated with slick and polished politicos.

Gibson: Scrap U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security By Chris Morris SARANAC LAKE — Congressional candidate Chris Gibson — Republican challenger to Democratic U. S. Rep. Scott Murphy in New York’s 20th Congressional District — says he’ll make the tough decisions in order to get a handle on the nation’s spiraling deficit. Appearing on WNBZ radio’s North Country Today program recently, Gibson said he would work to eliminate the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, an agency which is budgeted to spend $54.7 billion in 2011. According to Gibson, the U.S. took the wrong route following the Sept. 11 attacks. Rather than adding another agency, the government should have concentrated on enhancing communications between existing agencies, he said. The various agencies had a substantial amount of intelligence information on the impending attacks that should have been vetted and shared to prevent them. “What we should have done is consolidated — we should have streamlined our organizations,” he said. “I believe we should have declared war on our enemy and gone after al Qaeda. What we did instead was typical, but not helpful. Our response after Sept. 11 was to grow the size of government.” He said creation of the Department of Homeland Security added a substantial number of sixfigure salaries and more bureaucracy rather than addressing the core problem, which was streamlining intelligence gathering and enhancing interagency communication. Gibson said those additional executives also received benefits and pensions the U.S. couldn’t afford. Also, the Bush administration spent billions of dollars constructing facilities to house Homeland Security units — more money Gibson said

shouldn’t have been spent. “We should have created a joint inter-agency task force among the agencies we had already — and gone after our enemy,” he said. “We won World War II without the Department of Homeland Security. We’re never going to have enough money to harden every port, every bridge, and every key building — although some of that needs to occur. Gibson said the U.S. should concentrate on more decisive military action. “What we need to do is recognize the fact that al Qaeda declared war on us — we didn’t declare war on them,” he explained. “We need to take precision action against them — we don’t need more big government.” Gibson said his observations are backed up by 24 years of active military service. Over the course of his 24-year Army career, which included four combat tours in Iraq, Gibson rose to the rank of Colonel. Gibson’s stance in terms of making cuts to the federal budget is in sharp contrast to his fellow Republicans running in New York’s 23rd Congressional District — Saranac Lake accountant Doug Hoffman and Watertown businessman Matt Doheny. During a recent debate, Hoffman and Doheny said they would cut into the deficit by eliminating Congressional earmarks. But those earmarks make up a negligible chunk of the nation’s spending. Defense, Medicaid and Medicare, and Social Security account for at least 60 percent of federal expenditures. Gibson explained politicians need to start by thinking big and make the painful cuts, however unpopular they may be. “We have to do it,” he said. “What we need now is leadership. This is the first time since 1974 we have no budget — we’ve got no budget, because our leaders in Washington D.C. don’t want to

stand behind the hard choices that are necessary to move forward.” In his tour through the North Country, Gibson also said he would be seeking answers to the shortage of doctors in the Adirondacks region, a problem he said is likely to worsen without decisive action. The federal government’s caps on payments to general practitioners, soaring patient loads, and excessive awards in medical lawsuits are all contributing factors, he said. Gibson supports repealing Obama’s health-care bill but pursuing initiatives to reduce medical costs. Gibson is running a close race with Murphy. The most recent poll numbers, offered up by a conservative organization, show Murphy with a slim five percentage point lead over the Kinderhook Republican.

Benefit dinner to help Angell family WARRENSBURG — A benefit spaghetti dinner has been scheduled to raise money for cancer victim Brian Angell of Thurman. The event is set for Saturday, Oct. 16, from 4 to 7:30 p.m. at the Warrensburg Masonic Lodge on Main Street. The event includes a silent auction, a basket raffle and more. Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for seniors and children. Those younger than 5 are admitted free. For information or to donate cash or to contribute items for the raffles or silent auction, call Terri Leguire at 623-9778 Celie Hughes at 696-4904, or Krista Gangsaa at 504-4239. Angell was diagnosed with a rare form of colon cancer in May. He had emergency surgery, and is now undergoing chemotherapy treatment, which has been causing some complications. After surgery recovery and before starting chemotherapy, Angell helped lead a local work mission this summer to improve housing of the underprivileged in Charlotte N.C. participate.

Crossbow legislation falls woefully short Give the elderly and physically-challenged the ability to use a crossbow during archery season


t’s official — crossbows will be allowed during next year ’s regular and muzzleloader season, as well as during a special late season in the Southern Zone. I know what most of you are thinking .... “so, what?” I must concur — like I’m going to leave my Browning in the rack in favor of a device that tosses a bolt 2,700 feet per second slower. Granted it is a baby step toward allowing crossbow enthusiasts the right to practice their craft in the Empire State. But, for me, the legislation falls woefully short of its original intent because it doesn’t allow those with physical limitations to hunt during the regular archery season with a crossbow. I have a unique insight on this subject — I am one such person. My left hand remains partially-paralyzed after a negligent hunter sent a shotgun slug tearing through my neck in 1993. Since that time, I’ve struggled to regain my ability to practice the sport I love. As I was recovering, one of the first questions I had of the physical therapists was “How am I ever going to bowhunt again?” They had very few answers. We tried all sort of adaptive devices — metal forms that would hold my wrist straight. We tried velcro wraps to hold my hand to the bow. Nothing worked. Then, in 1995, a man named Jerry Goff came up with a device that could hold a bow at full draw, and New York passed legislation allowing such devices. The device, called a Draw Loc, worked fabulously for me. I was bowhunting again — and I’ve since taken a number of deer with my adapted bow. But, it does have limitations. Fortunately for me I do have some use of my left hand, allowing me to at least grasp the bow. Others, like amputees, are not as lucky. It also is awkward to hold a bow at full draw all the time. It gets very tiring, even from a sitting position, and

some people simply do not have the arm or shoulder strength to do so or even hoist a bow. So, why block these individuals from filling their bow tag by using a crossbow? The use of crossbows is now allowed in some capacity in all but two states — and 18 states have provisions allowing physically-challenged hunters to use them during regular archery seasons. Many provinces in Canada are the same. In fact, I leave in just a few short week’s to hunt in Manitoba, where I am allowed to use a crossbow with my handicapped archer permit. Some bowhunter groups — such as New York Bowhunters Inc. — have lobbied hard against the use of crossbows, even among the physically-challenged, arguing that there use would open the flood gates on applications from people perfectly capable of using a traditional bow. That’s like saying we shouldn’t issue handicapped parking passes to people in wheelchairs because able-bodied people may abuse the right. Why punish the disabled simply to control permit abuse? It seems to me this could be controlled through strict screening during the permitting process itself.

Bowhunter groups also argue that the use of crossbows would fill the woods with hunters during archery season — a time they have historically enjoyed to themselves. But, the statistics don’t seem to support the argument. In nearby Pennsylvania, for example, where crossbows have been allowed since 2009 for anyone possessing an archery license, the number of hunters has remained unchanged. Granted bowhunters harvested a few more deer with crossbows — most likely because of their accuracy — but is that such a bad thing? I’d dare say less deer were wounded, and tags are issued to be filled. And, let’s face it, unless you hunt with a traditional recurve — there is little that remains “primitive” about today’s compounds. My compound bow, for example, because of its power stroke (the distance the bow string travels from full draw to rest position) is actually much faster than my crossbow. It’s quieter, and I get better groups at 40 yards with it than I do my crossbow. I’ll be the first to admit it usually is my weapon of choice during the archery season. I chose the crossbow for Manitoba, however, because it is easier to shoot given my physical limitations — especially in cold weather when my hand basically becomes a useless appendage at the end of my left arm with little to no mobility. I’m not sure how anyone could in good conscience tell someone with a similar physical limitation they cannot bowhunt, with or without a crossbow — all in the name of somehow preserving the “purity of the sport.” John Gereau is managing editor of Denton Publications and a proud member of the Physically Challenged Bowhunters of America.

More moose on the loose in New York

Back to the altar...


s I pulled on the oars of the guideboat, I could feel the vibrations of his shivering in the hull. The gray day dawned cool and overcast, offering a stark contrast to the attendant foliage, which was bright, warm and embracing. Visibility across the water was limited and we could barely discern the far shoreline. But we knew where to go. Every autumn, we venture there, traveling through the woods, over several carries and across a few ponds. The closer we get, the less we speak. Our conversation is stunted by the prospect of finding large, aggressive brook trout on the prowl. My friend wasn’t shivering from the cold; rather he was shaking with anticipation. Crossing the flat, black waters, we began to hear the slaps coming from a small bay on the far shore. It sounded as if a beaver was sounding a warning, yet the sounds were too scattered and frequent. We entered the bay and headed directly to ‘The Altar.’ It is a secluded place where only a few lucky brook trout anglers gather to pray every October. It is distinguished by a large tangle of brush and downed trees that attract female brookies. The thick cover offers a safe place for a nest, where the gentle flow of a small inlet provides the cool, oxygenated waters necessary for incubation of eggs. The brook trout spawn occurs in several stages. The female brookies are the first to arrive, scouting the location for a good nesting site. Eventually, they’ll settle for a location that features a combination of good cover from predators, an escape route to deep water and access to a fresh, cold flow.

SATURDAY October 9, 2010

A brace of fresh brookies are readied for the grill. After the females establish nests, roving pods of male brookies will enter the bay searching for ripe females. It is at this stage of the spawn that the males will display the most aggression. The brookies will chase after each other, and just about anything else that gets in their way. When the various pods of male brook trout encounter one another, all hell breaks loose as they display territorial aggression. This is where the slapping noises comes from, as some fish actually burst out of the water in a display of strength. Anglers fortunate enough to be on the water at such times, are usually in for a treat. It is an occasion that comes around only once a year. It is a time that is marked by cool mornings, brilliant foliage, heavy fog and the sound of geese on the wing. It is a time that signals the transition from fishing season to hunting season. It comes at a time when the days grow shorter, the weather turns colder and the tourists are few. Although the recent rains will likely bring salmon into the rivers to spawn while bass, pike and walleye will begin feeding heavily for the long winter ahead; for many anglers the close of trout season on October 15 will signal the conclusion of fishing season and the beginning of hunting season. The fishing rods they retire in autumn won’t be revisited until thick ice envelopes the local lakes. In the months between, sportsmen and women will remain active outdoors, and a lucky few will still be dreaming of next October and the ones that got away.

A recent news release from the Department of Environmental Conservation indicates that New York State’s moose population has experienced a significant increase in recent years. DEC wildlife biologists estimate that the state’s moose herd of about five hundred animals just three years ago has expanded to about eight hundred. The good news is that moose have been making an incredible comeback, but the bad news is that motorists have more to worry about. In 2009, the state saw 10 collisions between moose and vehicles. Fortunately, there were no human fatalities. However, motorists should remain cautious, as this time of year is also the fall rutting season for moose. They are most active often are on the move at dawn and dusk, when visibility is poor. DEC offers the following advice to motorists: Use extreme caution when driving at dawn or dusk, especially during September and October. Reduce your speed, stay alert and watch the roadsides. Slow down when approaching moose standing near the roadside, as they may bolt at the last minute when a car comes closer, often running into the road. Moose may travel in pairs or small groups, so if a moose is spotted crossing the road, be alert for others that may follow. Make sure all vehicle occupants wear seatbelts and children are properly restrained in child safety seats. Use flashers or a headlight signal to warn other drivers when moose are spotted near the road. Motorcyclists should be especially alert for moose. If a moose does run in front of your vehicle, brake firmly but do not swerve. If a moose is hit and killed by a vehicle, the motorist should not remove the animal unless a permit is obtained from the investigating officer at the scene of the accident. While it offers little consolation for a wrecked vehicle, a single moose can provide over of 500 pounds of low cholesterol, low fat, all organic meat. Enjoy the fall foliage and drive careful.

SATURDAY October 9, 2010


Cougar soccer team aiming to achieve lofty goals By Thom Randall CHESTERTOWN — The North Warren Boys Soccer team has a tradition of beating the odds — achieving goals beyond expectations — and the reason goes beyond athletic skill and school pride. It’s based on relentless practice and shared objectives of the players. Their legacy is exemplified by the 2007 team, which swept the Adirondack League and took their school to the Sectional finals. The Cougar 2010 soccer team has been cruising through the first half of their season, staying among the top teams in their league despite the obstacle of a low school enrollment. At their practices, the team demonstrates how they maintain their edge — they take the conditioning and drills seriously, and listen carefully and respond to Coach Jason Humiston’s directions. They should. Humiston knows how to win. He played soccer in both high school at Argyle and at the University of South Carolina. While at high school —Humiston graduated in 1993 — he would score 30 goals per season, and in his senior year, he was the scoring leader in the region. Humiston, who approaches athletics like a combat lieutenant, has high expectations from his players.

He works them hard. His drills and conditioning sessions are intense. When he wants to make a point on field play, he puts down his clip board and charges around the field, slamming the ball around players, and the team members respect it. Humiston, however, defers credit to his players. The 2010 squad is heavy with seniors who’ve been playing Varsity for two or three years. “We’re solid in every position, we’ve got good team speed, and the players are finding the net more this year,” he said. As of Wednesday, the Cougars were 5-2-1 overall, having won some critical games against some larger schools with a deep talent pool. For much of the season, North Warren team has been sitting at or near the top of the Western Division of the Adirondack League, a testament to the players’ hard work and focus. Key players include lead scorer Joe Aiken, who performs well under pressure; Greg Dower, who’s stepped up this year into the limelight in scoring, plus Thom Pereau and

Bryan Beckler who have made some critical goals and assists lately. Then there’s the strong Benn Frasier, a vital element of the backfield backfield who’s stepped up with aggressive play this year anchoring the defense, and the athletic, talented goalie Kristian Seeley who’s been keeping opponent’s scores low. The 2010 team has been focusing on short passing control and attacking the wings with speed to catch opponents offguard, Humiston said, adding that the players have set high expectations for themselves. “We came into this season expecting to win all our games,” Humiston said. “We want first place this year, and that’s our goal.” With the considerable talent and strong programs in the Adirondack League, that goal presents a formidable challenge, he said. “We have a team that can beat anybody on a good day, but in order to beat the ‘big dogs,’ we have to play better,” he said. “We have our work cut out for us.”

Volleyball action

Warriors’ determination, savvy game plan earn them league leadership Among the Warrior scoring leaders were Erin Blunt with four kills and three aces, Chelsea Sipowicz with eight digs and Courtney Casey with 15 assists and two aces. Munzenmaier had four kills in her arsenal, and Kelly Flaherty had five. However, Lake George can’t rest on its accomplishments. As there’s no lacking of suspense in the Adirondack League, these two teams meet again Oct. 26.

Corinth 3, Warrensburg 0 WARRENSBURG -- Tomahawk Mary-Margaret Gallup recorded 21 points, three aces and two kills to lead her team in defeating Warrensburg 3-0 in an Adirondack League matchup Sept. 30. Corinth won the games 25-20, 25-15, and 25-18. Cheyenne Palmateer led the Burghers with seven digs, four kills and three points; Bobbilee Webster contributed eight points, while Emily Morehouse had five digs and four points.

Lake George 3, Warrensburg 0 WARRENSBURG -- Warrior Volleyball standout Courtney Casey scored 14 points, seven aces, 15 assists and two digs

as Lake George defeated Warrensburg Sept. 29. The Warriors, unbeaten in league play, won with game scores of 25-13, 25-8, and 25-8. Katy Munzenmaier scored with 14 points, four aces, two digs and one kill, aided by Kelly Flaherty with eight points, two aces and five kills, and Chelsea Sipowicz with six points, two aces and three digs. Showing that the Burghers weren’t going to fold under pressure exerted by the league’s top team, Cheyenne Palmateer captured eight points, five digs and two assists; Kirsten Morehouse tallied eight assists and three points; Autumn Smith had two aces, four points and three digs; and Laiken Ovitt contributed four digs and one assist.

Lake George 3, Glens Falls 0 LAKE GEORGE -- The Warriors proved why they are atop the Adirondack League Sept. 27 when they defeated the far larger Glens Falls by a comfortable margin. Warrior Courtney Casey stepped up to score 11 points, 16 assists and three digs in the victory. The game scores were 25-15, 25-10, 25-22. Teammate Katy Munzenmaier contributed 17 points, seven aces, two kills and two digs. Kelly Flaherty had 13 points, three aces, five kills and one dig; Hayley Humiston contributed three points, four kills and one dig.

Lake George 3, Argyle 2 LAKE GEORGE — Playing with a resolute spirit, the Lake George Warriors prevailed Oct. 1 in a key matchup between the two top volleyball teams in the Adirondack League. Demonstrating the depth of their determination, the Warriors defeated top-ranked Argyle 25-22, 25-20, and 25-21 in a home-court matchup that determined Lake George now owns the top position in the league. Launching unanswered powerful serves and avoiding the Scots’ top players with clever shot placement both made the difference in the Warrior ’s victory. Warrior Katy Munzenmaier's six aces paced the team in serving. Those two Argyle standouts, middle-hitters Shelby Graham and Ashley Ellis, saw a considerable number of shots bypass them to their teammates as Lake George followed their astute game plan. Regardless of the ball placement, Graham finished nonetheless with eight kills and three blocks, and Ellis finished with seven blocks and six kills. With veteran coach Cathy Stanilka tweaking positions, her backup players kept the ball off the Warrior floor under the pressure of Graham and Ellis with their powerful kills and blocks. Part of the plan apparently was to vary the position of the ball setting, moving it away from the middle duo. The Scots fought back effectively, tying the score several times. But Lake George’s plan coupled with their determination made the vital difference as Lake George answered the Scots’ persistent challenges.

Football action Granville 18, Lake George 12 LAKE GEORGE — An inspired Granville football team, pumped up and focusing on the prospect of defeating conference leaders Lake George, pulled out a victory Oct. 1 over the storied Warrior squad in a Class C matchup. Granville played in a manner that Lake George has earned a reputation — with focus: that every block, every tackle makes a difference, and this game is the only one that counts. Granville Senior back Codi Scribner ran 35 times for 163 yards and two touchdowns for his team. Although Granville has recently been plagued with turnovers, they kept their hands on the ball Friday, committing one while prompting three from Lake George. One final interception of Warrior quarterback Willy Blunt, within the Granville 5-yard line with 1:15 or so remaining in the game, secured the victory for the Horde. The Warriors had their own successful goal-line stands earlier with two successful shut-downs of Granville offensive drives inside the 20-yard line. The game had its high points for Lake George, whether it was Blunt’s 41-yard touchdown pass to tie the game in the first quarter, or a persistent drive that ended with his touchdown run. In the effort, Blunt rant 16 times for 96 yards, and Liucci tallied eight carries for 57 yards and six receptions for 58 yards gained. Marty Zivica snagged an interception and Matt McGowan received four passes for 61 yards. Despite the loss, Lake George is still 3-2 overall, and is one of four teams with a good shot for the playoffs.

Boys Soccer Bolton 0, Fort Ann 0, 2 OT FORT ANN — The Bolton boys soccer team rallied Monday Oct. 5 to quell the formidable offensive power of their unbeaten Fort Ann rivals in a 0-0 double overtime tie. Bolton's defense, including Todd Markham, Jake Nittmann and Kyle Vilmar, were credited with matching Fort Ann’s defensive expertise in the game. Eagle Goalie Mitchell Jordon had 11 saves. This game represented Jordon’s third shutout. Fort Ann out-booted Bolton with 16 shots on goal to Bolton’s 6. The Cardinals also dominated 51 in corner kicks. As of Tuesday, Bolton’s 2010 record was 3-4-1, and Fort Ann’s was 7-0-1.

Lake George 2, Bolton 1 BOLTON LANDING — In a hard-fought contest that came down to the wire, the Bolton Boys Soccer team again proved they could slug it out with the very best, although it ended up in a 2-1 loss for the Eagles in a matchup Sept. 30 versus the unbeaten Lake George. Lake George, however, sealed the game when they demonstrated how effectively they can choreograph their offense: three of their players combined for a goal during the first overtime. The game's lone goal, scored by a David Bruno on an assist by Erik Jones, allowed Lake George to remain unbeaten in the Adirondack League. Bolton, however, showed their offensive potential by tallying an 8-3 advantage on shots on goal. Warrior Goalie Ryan Moll secured the win for the Warriors with his 8 saves.

North Warren 2 Argyle 1 ARGYLE -- Joe Aiken scored the winning goal toward the end of the game to secure the victory for his teammates as North Warren's notched a 2-1 Adirondack League soccer victory Sept. 29 over Argyle.

Bolton 6, Salem 0 BOLTON LANDING -- Billy Smith scored a hat trick all in the second half and Todd Markham netted two goals in the first stanza to power Bolton to a 6-0 shutout win over Salem Sept. 27. The Eagles defensive lineup of Nathan Breault, Caleb Kneeshaw and Dustin French combined with goalie Mitchell Gordon showed the Eagle fans what they could accomplish at the expense of their foes.
