She won a seat on the W arrensburg Central Boar d of Board of Education, defeating Patrick Powers of W arrensburg by a vote of 338 to 213. CONTINUED ON PAGE 14

Charity begins with a free gift Campaign reform is a must
’ll never understand the art of fundraising or the skill of some individuals to successfully solicit donations. Take the many non-profit organizations that give you something for a specified donation amount—like a public T.V. station giving you a gift of a Michael Bernard Beckwith motivational DVD for your money pledge. Many years ago I donated a few dollars to a small, Catholic school in New Mexico. It was doing God’s work by helping provide an education and moral training to young Native American members of the church. I was happy to mail a check for a few dollars to show my support. I hoped my few bucks would at least cover the costs of the mailing appeal (targeted at me) with a little extra for the kids. In the coming months I received more mailings from the school: Pens, notepads, calendars, lapel pins, plastic glow-in-thedark crosses, prayer cards, personalized return address labels, and feathered medicine wheel wind chimes. Aside from the fact that all of this stuff was manufactured in China, not by the school children, I wondered why it was necessary to send me “free gifts” in the first place? Included with these free gifts were words of thanks and appeals to send more money. Of course I have no problem sending the school a few dollars a few times a year to help with its good works, but now I have a top desk drawer at home stuffed with “free gifts.” I have been handing out Pueblo notepads and wind chimes to friends while I place the prayer cards and the plastic glow-in-the-dark crosses in a small basket at the entrance of a local church. The local church, recognizing the same bounty of “free gifts” received by its parishioners donating to various church charities—yes, even my favorite Indian school—has a basket for churchgoers in which to clean out their desk drawers. In the little basket you’ll find unblessed rosaries, holy cards with pictures of saints, mini prayer books and yes, even a few of those plastic glow-in-the-dark crosses. Why is it that fundraisers feel folks won’t donate money if they don’t receive
something in return? Shouldn’t charity be a one-way street? Maybe charity does involve a little selfishness now and then—like the fact that giving something to those in need can make the giver feel good, even useful. But if giving is predicated only by what the giver receives, then I think we’ve missed the point. I don’t fault the Indian school for mailing me trinket wind chimes and ultra-thin notepads, but I do wonder why its fundraisers spend the school’s hard-to-find money for such manipulative trinkets? I know somewhere scientific data exists that shows that people are more likely to donate money to a non-profit organization or cause if they get something in return. But I’d like to believe that, perhaps naively, this just isn’t so—that people like me actually donate money or volunteer time for the simple joy of giving and sharing personal bounty with others. Even the idea that some donations to charities are tax deductible appears to turn the entire process into something like a tawdry business transaction. Perhaps this kind of reciprocity was always the foundation of charitable giving? Psychologists Anthony Pratkanis and Elliot Aronson, in their book titled “The Age of Propaganda: Everyday Use and Abuse of Persuasion,” write that “the norm of reciprocity is successful as a persuasion device because it directs our thoughts and carries its own motivation to act on those thoughts. We are directed to think ‘How can I repay my obligation?’ as opposed to ‘Is this a good deal?’ Our primary motivation is to avoid the uneasy feeling that comes from transgressing the norm.” So my obligation is to repay the receipt of notepads and glow-in-the-dark crosses? Admitting that Pratkanis and Aronson are likely correct in their assessment of the underlying motivations of reciprocity, it still doesn’t scratch the surface of why I personally feel good about sending a small Indian school in New Mexico a few dollars more.

•100 Years Ago – Oct. 1911• Update - infanticide at Mineville In the 30 years this column has been r unning, the story that has received the most attention ever was in the May 7 and 14, 201 1 editions of the Adirondack Journal. It told of the headless bodies of two babies, girls about seven months old and thought to be twins, who were found hidden May 5, 1911. The two babies wer e discover ed near a stump by several boys playing ball at the mouth of the abandoned Old Bed mine at Mineville which had been deserted for many years. A boy whose last name was Sharr ow said that the bodies were carefully and neatly sewed up in a cloth sack. Dr. R.T. Saville, who lived close by, was of the opinion that the children had been dead for about thr ee weeks befor e they wer e found. Their heads could not be located although a thor ough sear ch was made in the area wher e the bodies wer e found. An inquest was held by Coroner Marshall and no verdict was r eturned. Police sear ched desperately in an ef fort to solve these heinous murders and a vague reference in the newspaper was made that ther e was suspicion that pointed str ongly to a woman as the guilty person and that they believed that the mystery would soon be solved. I could find no further reference to the case in later issues of the Warrensburgh News. I enlisted the help of Barbara Whitfor d at the Richards Library who is skilled at computer research. She found no information in other Adirondack newspapers that the case had ever been solved, but she uncovere d additional interesting pieces to the puzzle. Within a short time after the discovery of the decapitated Mineville girls, the bodies of two other infant childr en wer e found in Northern New York, one in a suitcase near Plattsburgh which had evidently been
thrown fr om a train and another near Port Henry, less than a week old, that had been cast up on the shore of Lake Champlain. No clues were ever found to help solve these inhuman crimes and to bring the perpetrator to justice. It is an unsolved case lost in the mists of time, not unlike that of Jack the Ripper, with all the people involved dead and gone and many untold secr ets buried along with them. I’d like to hear from anyone that has any further information.
Old Bed mine comes alive
An inter esting side story to the mur ders involves the spooky Old Bed mine, a dark and dangerous place. It was just a little over four years after the bodies were found there that the old open pit mine came alive at 3 a.m. on a T uesday in September 1915. Because no one was around at that time in the morning probably saved a lot of lives as the earth shook and the entir e west bank and a portion of the south side, comprising many thousands of tons of r ock and dirt slid of f into the bottom of the mine. Through this great tremor, the Port Henry Iron Ore Company’s stone hoisting house on the south side of the mine sagged at least six inches on one end and was on the ver ge of sinking into the mine. The building used by Witherbee, Sherman & Co. for making concrete blocks had slid within a few feet of the yawning opening and was in danger of destruction. The highway along the south side of the mine was carried away and railway tracks were twisted and moved which would later have to be replaced. Cracks appear ed in the earth near the mine and small slides began to occur. When the big cave-in originally happened the four inmates of the mine hospital, located near the mine, wer e greatly frightened and wer e removed to another building, but the hospital did r emain standing. All the horses and
wagons in the company barn wer e taken to a place of safety and it was believed that the barn would have to be later moved to secure new site. Another new large crack appeared on the surface and bystanders had no doubt that the worst was yet to come. It is her e that the story closes. Now, about 100 years later , that crack in time and space is closed, leaving us wondering at the secrets that were lost there.
Carrie Doring rests in peace
In the July 9 issue of theAdirondack Journal, I wr ote about the death of Carrie Doring, the much-beloved servant of Mrs. John L. Russell, whose summer home in Warrensburgh, built by her husband after 1866, was Bonnie Brae Villa. It was located behind the present day U.S. Post Of fice until it burned March 13, 1980. The barn, which once housed John L. Russell’s magnificent show horses, is still standing. Before Captain John L. Russell bought it after he came back from the Civil W ar, it was a small farm house owned by J.R. Berry and Russell r ebuilt it into a Queen Anne style mansion, the new kitchen ar ea being the original str ucture. Starting in 1934 the house was r enamed “Chalet Swiss” when it was owned by Hilda and Willie Muller. The Warrensburgh News once described the house as “Bonnie Brae, with its impr essive backgr ound of mountains, tr ees, massive lawn, curving driveway , bell tower , fountain and carriage and car port, sporting five fir eplaces, r ound windows, elegant barns and expansive gr ounds, the Bonnie Brae was a study in local historical architecture.” It was a dark day in W arrensburgh history when 60 or so fir efighters fr om thr ee companies battled the blaze which razed the building at 203 Main Str eet, noted for its large bell tower marked with the letter “R.” for Russell. I was there when that bell tower crashed to the

Letters to the Editor Bentley is the man for Horicon
Adirondack Journal - 7 ground in a mass of flames. Miss Doring, 70, who died of heart tr ouble, was buried on the Russell lot in the W arrensburgh Cemetery. In the July 9 article, I wrote that she did not have a gravestone, because there was none listed in a grave inventory. About a month ago, however, I indeed found her grave on the corner of the Russell lot at the cemetery under a neat little stone simply engraved “Carrie.” Later, I r eceived a letter , fr om Jane Gale who suffered a bad fall and a badly sprained wrist, and now lives in a nursing home in Cohoes. The family originally lived in Troy. I recognized her name as I had seen it many times conducting r esearch on the Russell family. She is the gr eat-granddaughter of John and Mary Russell, and the granddaughter of their daughter, Mary RussellArchibald and the daughter of Mary Louise Archibald Gale. I have Jane’s birth announcement in my Russell scrapbook. The heading says, “A Little Gale “ and states that she was born Sept. 28, 1926 to Mrs. Alfred Warren Gale at the Brady Maternity Hospital in Troy. Jane Gale wrote that When she was a child, her grandmother Mary Russell Archibald who lived in New York City visited her parents in T roy during July , and the thr ee of them would drive up to W arrensburgh to put flowers on the graves, including Carrie’s. After placing flowers for the family , Jane Gale’s grandmother would say , “now let’s put flowers on Carrie’s grave.” Jane Gale’s mother, John L. Russell’s granddaughter, often shar ed her r ecollections of visiting and talking with Carrie in the kitchen when she visited her grandparents. I am honor ed to have hear d fr om Jane Gale, a member of a gr eat family whose ancestors are buried in our local cemetery. Carrie Doring was a domestic servant for the Russell family for 33 years — and she is now listed in the cemetery roster at the Richards Library, as I did it myself.

Prospect Mt. open until Oct. 23 LAKE GEORGE — Prospect Mountain Veterans Memorial Parkway will remain open through Sunday, Oct. 23, according to the NewYork State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC). “Due to the warm weather and the extended foliage season it makes sense to allow people to enjoy the sights and activities the mountain is known for,” said DEC Regional Director Betsy Lowe. The 5.5-mile parkway has thr ee separate overlooks — The Narrows, Lake Geor ge and Eagle’s Eye — fr om which to enjoy the scenery of the Adirondack Mountains and Lake Geor ge. A shuttle runs from the parking lot at the end of the parkway to the 2,030-foot summit of Prospect Mountain. A self-guided nature trail, the remains of the world’s largest cable railroad and picnic facilities can also be enjoyed by visitors. A 1.5mile hiking trail connects the V illage of Lake George to the summit of the mountain. The parkway was scheduled to close Oct. 16. Due to continued warm weather, the amount of colorful foliage re maining on trees and the request of tourism officials the parkway will be open for an additional weekend. Access to the Prospect Mountain Veterans Memorial Parkway costs $10 for a car, $4 for a motorcycle and $50 for a commercial bus.

After many years of research in the U.S. and using his linguistic skills in Russia, he completed his book WOLVES IN RUSSIA and is now working on a second book on the same topic. Restoration of large populations of wolves, with its harsh toll on western communities, agriculture, and wildlife (especially the elk population), is a prized goal of radical environmentalists’ plan to return the Adirondack region and other eastern areas to uninhabited pristine nature. ELIZABETH NICKSON, writer and international journalist, who lives on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia, will deliver the Morning Address. As restrictions, expenses and delays mounted when she was forced to subdivide her 30-acre forest, she started asking questions about where these ideas originated, and what their effects have been in places not quite as glamorous and trivial as Salt Spring Island.

Pug Party prevails despite dreary forecasts By Thom Randall email@example.com CHESTERTOWN — Considering the activity last weekend at Dynamite Hill, pug owners apparently adore their canine pets. Many dozens of pug owners and enthusiasts from all over northeastern U.S. ignored dismal weather forecasts and turned out for the 12th annual Halloween Pug Parade & Party held Sunday, Oct. 16 at Dynamite Hill. Those attending not only participated in various casual contests and dre ssed their pet pugs up in costumes for a parade, but they spent time socializing, swapping tales and tips about their beloved diminutive dogs. The event, which dr ew several hundr ed people and their pets, included vendors of pug paraphernalia and meetups between breeders and prospective pug owners. Darla, a black pug owned by the Dolin family of New Jersey, was one of those pugs who was obtained two years ago at the event. The family has attended for four straight years for vacations with their pugs. Darla was dressed as an Indian, as was her human char ge Leah Dolin, 1 1. Her par ents, Ann and Chuck Dolin, were dressed as cowboys, as was their second pug, Biscuit. Last year, Darla — garbed as a Spanish Senorita, won a “Prettiest Pug” award. A year earlier, Biscuit won “Most Handsome,” in a surfer dude getup. This year , he was outfitted in chaps, a cowboy hat, and a holster complete with pistols and bullets. Another year, Leah was costumed as Little Bo Peep, and Biscuit was covered with cotton balls to pose as her lost sheep, Ann Dolin said. “We’re alr eady discussing plans for next year,” she said, noting the Pug Party was
well worth the 470-mile r ound trip fr om their home in New Jersey. “We just wouldn’t miss this,” she said, noting that pugs enjoy socializing with their own breed. Local r esident Julie Mof fit and daughter Ariel echoed the point. They and their pug Angel were dressed as fortune tellers. “I absolutely love this event — you get to meet people from all over,” Moffit said. “It’s not often I get to take my dog out to visit with other pugs.” Nearby was Claudia Minor, 10, along with her Boston T errier “Coco,” both dr essed as Geisha girls in tur quoise cer emonial r obes. Coco was sporting a traditional black Geisha wig. Claudia and her mother Erin Miner have been attending for four years, Miner said. “It’s a great event that we look forward to every year,” she said. “The dogs absolutely have fun here.” Kelli Dougan of Brant Lake watched several pugs prance by. Her pug was dressed as “Pugtastic Pirate,” complete with a swor d, buccaneer hat and bag of gold. “It’s so nice to see community spirit like this,” she said. Between announcing various fanciful contests to the cr owd, event coor dinator Pam Morin expr essed thanks to the Brant Lake and Chester town employees for their help setting up. She also noted that Eric & Eric construction donated the tents. Vendors at the Pug Party were conducting a brisk business on Sunday . A long line formed at the Pug Cafe, which was raising money to bankroll North Warren high School Scholarships.

Horicon classmates convene after decades apart By Thom Randall firstname.lastname@example.org BRANT LAKE — The Horicon High School Class of 1970 r ecently held their first-ever reunion — the 41st anniversary of the class’s graduation — at Witherbee’s Carriage House Restaurant in Schroon Lake. Twelve of the original graduates and their spouses and guests attended, and the classmates, many of whom hadn’t seen each other for decades, spent hours r eminiscing and hearing about each others’ experiences, class member and r eunion organizer Gail Hawkins of Greeneville Tennessee said. “It was inter esting what people have done with their lives,” she said. “Everyone had a great time reminiscing and catching up — we all were in good spirits, and it was great fun.” Hawkins launched the r eunion early this year when she and her husband Jim were living in Germany — he retired this year from the U.S. Air For ce — and she started looking up classmates of Facebook. When the Hawkins’ r eturned to their farm in T ennessee in June, she and other classmates began organizing and

Recently, the Warren County Boar d of Supervisors decided to pr oceed with the features that state and federal grants ar e now available to bankroll, while planning additional complimentary features — like a pr oposed stone entrance building and a raised pedestrian bridge over W est Brook Road — that can be accomplished when mor e grant money becomes available. The Open House will mark the 18th visit that the design team, including architects and planners from Elan Design of Saratoga, have made to Lake George to conduct interviews and con-
duct r esearch. The purpose of this open house is for the project planners to r eceive feedback fr om this final public meeting to refine the project. “This has been a gr eat community effort, and we have hear d fr om so many people,” Lake Geor ge V illage Mayor Robert Blais said this week. “This is the time when all of the input will take real form that the community can see.” The park has a primary purpose of naturally purifying stormwater before it reaches Lake Geor ge, but a portion of the acreage is to be used to host festivals and community events.

Burghers defeat Catholic Central with long drives By Thom Randall firstname.lastname@example.org WARRENSBURG — Tough goal-line stands, a consistent of fensive attack and a big dose of “can do” attitude pr opelled the Warrensburg Football team to a 36-6 victory Saturday, Oct. 15 as the 201 1 season was nearing its end. The Burghers have one more game this year: homecoming against Bishop Gibbons. Three times, Catholic Central dr ove the ball down within W arrensburg’s 10-yar d line, but the Burghers’ steely goal line stands stopped their offense short. Meanwhile, the Bur ghers’ potent of fense tallied a touchdown on every drive, except
for one. Contr olling the ball thr ough four quarters, Warrensburg held a scoring advantage the entire game. Midway through the third quarter however, Catholic Central r ecovered a Bur gher fumble, and three plays later, took it into the end zone for their only score. Burgher Coach Mike Leonbr uno cr edited his players’ positive attitude, stemming from their win two weeks earlier over ar chrival Lake George. “We’re very confident right now — the boys are playing really well,” he said. “We’re not making as many mistakes, and the players are doing all the simple things right.” Leonbruno said the Burghers are now executing plays properly, after many weeks of
practice. “Our coaches can now tell them what to do — and they do it,” he said. “They’r e believing in the coaching staf f, and we’r e believing in them.” Racking up the yar ds on of fense wer e Burgher running back Kalvin Duell with 124 yards, joining the season’s scoring standout Lucas Nelson, who added 89 gr ound yar ds Saturday. Each had two touchdowns. Burgher r eceiver Hunter added another touchdown with a cr owd-pleasing 55-yar d reception in the second quarter fr om quarterback Malachai Prosser, who contributed a touchdown of his own and gained 26 yar ds running. The ball was distributed well among a
group of running backs, all of whom crashed through the Catholic Central defense to gain vital yardage. Joining Nelson and Duell wer e Jer emy Barber with nine carries for 78 yar ds, Nick Nedelcu with two runs for 32 yards, Andrew Fish with one r un for 14 yar ds, and Colt Ovitt — who contributed a strong defensive effort — r unning for thr ee yar ds in two plays. In next Saturday’s homecoming game, the offense is likely to be an interesting show, as Malachai Pr osser, the team’s of fensive sparkplug, is scheduled to be sidelined, and a substitute quarterback — not chosen as of Tuesday — will be calling the plays.
