World-class train display planned for Pottersville

Veteran talks about the grim realities of war

This intricate depiction of a generic small city in the Hudson Valley is to be included in Clarke Dunham’s proposed model train center in Pottersville, which some say will attract nationwide attention and draw many thousands of visitors to northern Warren County. By Thom Randall POTTERSVILLE — A world-class, million-dollar exhibit of model trains complete with lavish layouts is planned for development in Pottersville, and area officials say may have a significant impact on tourism in Northern Warren County. “Railroads on Parade,” a project of the internationally acclaimed set designer Clarke Dunham, is on its way to become a reality in Pottersville, Dunham said.

By Thom Randall WARRENSBURG — Five state grants totalling $473,040 earmarked for water quality improvement projects in Warren County have been approved, and county officials greeted the news with enthusiasm. The grant awards include funds for two waterway improvement projects in the Lake George basin and one to boost the fish population in the Schroon River in Warrensburg, Dave Wick of Warren County Soil & Water Conservation District said. Wick’s agency developed the grants and applied for the funds on behalf of local municipalities. Bankrolled by the state Environmental Protection Fund,

SATURDAY November 20, 2010

NWCS youth learn subtleties of ATV safety limit, not wearing a helmet, and riding an ATV on a paved, public roadway. The students had some hands-on experience to figuratively drive their lessons home — most of them rode ATVs on the school’s former baseball field in a second session. Students who chose to ride selected one of the two ATVs, either a 90cc which is recommended for this age group or a 250cc model which is sized for larger teens. Cooperative Extension leaders explained many students who are taller or heavier at this age, or 12 to 14 years old, actually create a safety hazard by riding the smaller class ATVs that are generally recommended for them. Students were asked first to perform basic starting and stopping techniques, and then to navigate a short set of cones. A portion of the pupils traversed a simulated trail, two ATVs at a time. Also reviewed was the importance of maintaining distance between the ATVs and looking through turns or corners to avoid traffic or obstacles. Those seeking information about ATV safety for youth or about the 4-H programs are welcome to call Warren County Cornell Cooperative Extension at 623-3291.

North Warren Middle School students gather for a photo after a an ATV safety session conducted in late October by Warren County Cooperative Extension. Among those learning safety aspects were students (seated in front, left to right): Travis McConnell, Darren Granger, Matthew Simpson, Nick Monroe, (standing in back): Jimmy Porter, Phil Cooper, Gabby Needham, Ellie Underwood, Alex Hoffman, Mike Terry, Nick Sapienza, Brandon Prosser, and Rikki Wicks.

CHESTERTOWN — Several dozen North Warren Middle School students learned recently safe operation of all-terrain vehicles isn’t limited to limiting the speed and staying alert, but it involves choices before a rider even gets onto one of the machines. During the last week of October, the seventh and eighth grade students of North Warren Central participated in a 4-H all-terrain vehicle safety program conducted by Warren County Cooperative Extension staff. The focus of the program’s two sessions was to educate youth regarding safety practices, sound decision-making, and taking responsibility when using an ATV. Through the program, the students learned that safe operation can depend on a rider choosing an ATV of appropriate size and power to match their stature, Extension agent John Bowe said. The program was delivered in two sessions. The first session was a classroom session where youth read a news article about a student their age who suffered permanent brain damage after crashing an ATV while riding down a paved, residential road. The students correctly identified what state laws the youth would have broken if the accident occurred in Chestertown — breaking the speed

Soon after he first came to the Adirondacks, Rugge established the Chestertown Health Center when he was alarmed that primary care physicians were discontinuing their practices in region. His mission to bring quality, affordable care to Adirondack residents led to the founding of Warrensburg Health Center, and then 10 more in a chain that’s known as Hudson Headwaters Health Network. The chain gained national attention as a model solution to the rural health care crisis in America. During the 1990s, Rugge served as a health care consultant to the administration of President Bill Clinton. Despite Rugge’s substantial influence statewide and nationally — and his responsibilities as chief administrator of the sprawling network — Rugge has continued to see a roster of patients, which observers say demonstrates his personal commitment to others’ wellbeing. By offering inexpensive but expert health care, Hudson Headwaters has provided many jobs while improving the lives of area residents, community leaders


WARRENSBURG — Dr. John Rugge, CEO and founder of Hudson Headwaters Health Network, has been honored with the “Power to Change the World Award” by the Family Medical Education Coalition. The award was presented to Rugge on Oct. 31 at the Coalition’s 2010 northeast regional meeting in Hershey, Pa. In announcing the award, a Coalition representative praised Rugge for his continuing efforts to make health care more efficient, affordable and available, particularly in rural areas. “Dr. Rugge is a guide and a leader. He is committed to his profession, to the people in his region, to his family and to his patients,” the representative said in a prepared statement. “He has led by his own example and has truly demonstrated the power to change.“ The FMEC announcement further stated that Rugge has gained a reputation as a visionary and was invited to participate on several policy advisory panels over the years. Rugge has served as chair of Governor Mario Cuomo’s Health Care Advisory Board. He was also a member of Levitt’s Medicaid Commission which attempted to modernize Medicaid. Rugge is the only primary care physician currently serving the State Hospital Review and Planning Council which is now part of the Public Health Council. Rugge practiced medicine in the Adirondack for 36 years after graduating from Yale Medical School.

WCS approves $1.3 million energy-saving project

Students planning marathon dance By Thom Randall WARRENSBURG — Students at Warrensburg High School are now helping launch a fundraiser modeled after the immensely successful South Glens Falls Marathon Dance that’s raised millions of dollars for various charities. A core group of 10 adults and 12 students, primarily from the WCS junior class, have been meeting regularly to sponsor a charity dance to be held Jan. 15, for students in grades 7 through 12. Expectations are circulating about 400 to 500 students from both Warrensburg High and neighboring schools will participate. Some of the proceeds of the dance will go towards helping out various families in need, perhaps those with a family member enduring a life-threatening illness, according to Terri Leguire, one of the adults planning the marathon. The South Glens Falls Marathon Dance, thriving since the 1970s, raised $283,407 in 2010 alone for charity, about $23,000 more than in 2009. Unlike this marathon, which extends over two days, the Warrensburg marathon dance will likely be limited to 12 hours, extending from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. The event organizers have already contracted with a Vermont radio station to provide the deejays for the event, to be held in the Warrensburg High School gymnasium. Like the South Glens Falls marathon, an evening segment of the event will include hosting the public for staged events, awards, and bidding on gift baskets, Leguire said. ”It will be pretty cool if this can become an annual tradition,” she said. “We want to get the hype up about the event and make it happen.” High School principal Doug Duell said he was looking forward to the marathon dance plans to become reality. I think it’s a great opportunity for kids to be a part of something special,” he said. “Doing something for the good of others is a noble quality.”

SATURDAY November 20, 2010

By Lynn Smith WARRENSBURG — In a split vote of 4 to 2, the Warrensburg Board of Education approved a $1.3 million project Nov. 8 to install new energy management systems at its elementary and high schools. The installations are expected to maximize the efficiency of the buildings’ heating, lighting and ventilation systems. The upgrades are expected to save the school district at least $83,000 per year in utility expenses at present day costs, Superintendent of School Tim Lawson said. The project is to be financed for 10 years, and the loan payments to the Power Authority will be approximately $157,000 per year — which represents an interest rate of less than 1 percent. During the life of the loan, state aid of $120,000 is expected to refund all but $37,000 annually in the debt service cost. The net savings to the district is expected to be about $46,000 per year, or $460,000 over the span of the loan, if utility costs don’t increase. The project involves replacement of standard lights to high-efficiency fluorescent lights and installation of a new computer-controlled heating and ventilation management system in the elementary and high school buildings. At both those buildings, the existing computerized systems, installed in the mid 1990s, are now non-functional, Lawson said. The systems are now manually controlled. Steve Harrington of the Power Authority told board mem-

bers 80 other school districts statewide, including Ballston Spa and Albany, have implemented the systems and are saving money annually. School board president John MicGlire, who voted for the proposal, expressed concern whether the annual state aid anticipated to offset capital costs would indeed continue for the full 10 years, considering recent years’ cuts in state school funding. School Board members Richlene Morey and Linda Marcella-Baker voted against the $1.3 million project. Board member Jim Carrion was absent.

Hunting program prompts liability questions The hunter safety program conducted recently by Department of Environmental Conservation, originally planned to occur on school grounds, was held at the Stony Creek Gun Club. In discussing issues related to liability concerns, board members agreed to review the district’s policies in January concerning hosting programs on school premises not related to the district’s core functions. Board members have grappled with questions over whether the liability insurance plans provide appropriate coverage. In other business, Elementary principal Amy Langworthy announced Exit 23 Exxon Mobil station donated $750 towards the elementary playground fund. The board is scheduled to meet again at 7 p.m. Nov. 22.

Norma Hastings to be honored in Stony Creek VFW Veterans’ Day dinner a success The Veterans’ Day Dinner sponsored by the Warrensburg VFW Men’s Auxiliary was a sellout success, with the men running out of chicken and biscuits only 52 minutes after the people started pouring in the doors. This turnout of veterans, with people occupying every seat in the VFW hall, caught the Auxiliary by surprise, since the attendance more than doubled from the previous year, according to Men’s Auxiliary official Eddie Bates. “The VFW hall was filled to capacity,” Bates said. “Everybody enjoyed socializing.” Warrensburgh Museum of Local History director Steve Parisi noted more than 40 people from the dinner event came upstairs to experience the museum’s new Veterans Appreciation Room which includes soldier Joe Aiken's diary depicting the action on the front lines in World War I. Aiken is the grandfather of well-known local residents Jim, Tom and Bill Davis. The attendance was far more than Parisi expected, he said. Last year, about 35 people attended the Veterans Day dinner, and this year, more than 100 showed up, but only 82 dinners could be served, Bates added. “Next year, we’re going to double up on everything,” he said. “We extend sincere congratulations to to all those who made the dinner a success.”

•100 Years Ago – November, 1910• Worker killed instantly by blast Literally cooked to death was the fate of Peter Christian, night superintendent of the sulphite mill of the International Paper Company at Fort Edward at 4 o’clock a.m. Nov. 13, 1910. The yoke plate of the pulp digester blew out and Christian was standing close to the apparatus. The hot mass of sulphite flew out completely covering Christian’s body and badly burning Frank Lindsay and George Ferguson. Christian was killed instantly by the hot sulphite while Lindsay struggled to get away from the hot mass, but was frightfully burned. He was attended by Dr. Wilde and taken to the Glens Falls Hospital. Ferguson was badly burned also but will recover.

Earthly goods destroyed In Johnsburgh Corners at an early hour on Sunday morning, a cry of fire was heard and the dwelling house occupied by Isaac Monthany was in flames.

The structure was owned by Charles Armstrong.

Look out below Delbert E. Pasco, 50, fell from the porch roof of James H. Sturdevan’s tenant house Nov. 12, 1910 onto the street leading to the electric light station in Warrensburg. He broke both bones of his left leg about three inches above the ankle. Pasco had the contract of putting a tin roof on the porch and had two men on the job. He went up to inspect their work and there was some snow on the tin, making it slippery and when he slipped to the edge and knowing that he

was going to fall, he jumped 20 feet to the ground, twisting his left leg. Suffering severe pain, he was later attended at his home by Dr. Goodman and Dr. Griffin. (Note: James Sturdevan owned the bakery in Warrensburgh where the Riverside Gallery is now located on Elm Street. Electric Avenue, the street to the former electric light station once owned and operated by John G. Smith, is directly behind it. Delbert Pasco’s big white house was on Commercial Avenue, next door to Pasco’s Hardware store, now Curtis Lumber.)

Broken leg felt no pain Harlon Harrington, a grizzled old veteran of the Civil War, broke his leg Nov. 11, 1910, but it was a wooden one which took the place of the leg that was cut off by surgeons in a field hospital on a southern battlefield of the war. Van Jones, the Horicon Avenue blacksmith performed an operation on the wooden substitute and Mr. Harrington is stumping along in Warrensburgh as cheerful as ever.

Wasted time in the schoolroom? A new law has been passed that a parent whose child between the age of eight and 14 years that does not attend school as required by state law may be arrested and for the first offense fined up to $5 or jailed for five days. Each subsequent offense carries a fine of $50 or imprisonment of up to 30 days. (Note: In the early 1900s, many parents believed that school for their children was a total waste of time and it was better for them to be working to help keep food on the family table. The age limit was later raised to 16 years although many girls were already married before that age. Many factories, mercantile establishments, restaurants and farms in the U.S. were raided by police to look for children as young as eight years illegally working.)

Vote recount demanded It was reported Nov. 16, 1910 that M.J. Callanan of Keeseville, Democratic candidate for state senator against James A. Emerson of Warrensburgh, has taken steps to secure a recount and claims that Emerson did not receive the majority he claimed.

SATURDAY November 20, 2010

(Note: James Emerson was well known for his honesty and integrity. The official tally on election day said he had won the election by a margin of 618 votes.)

Indications of married bliss New national statistics show that only one married woman in 100 reaches the age of 60 years. A Pennsylvania man has bought a wife for $75. This is just another instance of the high cost of living. In the olden days a few pounds of tobacco was the regular price. Ad appearing in the local newspaper: ”To whom it may concern; Whereas my wife, Bertha Harrington has left my bed and board without just cause or provocation, I refuse to pay any bills she may contract. Nov. 9, 1910, Henry J. Harrington, Knowelhurst.

Fate of historic home not due to transaction with Grand Union To the editor: A recent letter by Judd Smith in the Post-Star disparaged myself and my family, asking why I opposed the new Stewart’s since, he asserted, the Grand Union bought from my family the property where they built their store, demolishing the big historic house that was there. The Grand Union leased the vacant lot where Subway is now and built a new store there in 1954. My folks did not own the property or have anything to do with it. The cellar excavation went beyond the property line and cut under my family’s three-unit motel, nearly causing it to fall into the hole and making it unusable for the summer. A lawsuit was necessary to reach a settlement for financial damages.When the store was finished, the structure included a false façade extending to the north for no other purpose than to hide the motel so tourists wouldn’t be able to see it from the road and motel guests would have to look at the back of a brick wall. My folks sold the King house in 1967 to the owner of the movie theater downtown, who operated it until 1976 when, to quote from an article in the Warrensburgh Historical Society Quarterly, “The house fell victim to one of those mysterious mid-winter fires in March 1976 and had to be burned the rest of the way by the fire department.” In August 1978 the property was leased to the Grand Union, which built the current store and leased out the adjacent spaces. Incidentally, a few years ago, the large old house on the north corner of Third Avenue and Main — also a rental property of same ownership as above — burned down.

Tina’s Hair Affair focuses on Teams ready for 2010 Polar Plunge new techniques, services LAKE GEORGE — Nearly 40 teams and more than 200 people from Albany to Glens Falls are signed up for the fourth annual Lake George Polar Plunge for Special Olympics. The participants have raised more than $20,000 in advance for the organization’s New York chapter. The dip into the cold waters, one of a dozen happening around the state, will take place at noon Saturday Nov. 20 at Shepard’s Cove. Registration starts at 9 a.m. There will be several events during the morning, including a Zumba warm-up. There will also be a Pre-Plunge Warm-Up Party Friday Nov. 19 at Shepard’s Cove Restaurant that will include a variety of raffles. Plunge organizers are looking for more teams and individuals. Toward that end, Kaila Horton, of Special Olympics New York said that the Warren and Washington counties Victim Impact Panel will give a $250 scholarship to the top high school and top college student among the fund-raisers. In addition, the top-ranked high school and college team will each receive a plaque and a prize. One of the student plungers will also have their name drawn at random for a $250 airline voucher. Three teams have accounted for $8,000 of the $20,000. Max's Buddies, headed by Lisa Jackoski, is in third place among teams by raising almost $1,800. Jackoski’s son Max is a Special Olympian and attends Lake George High School. She had 20 people on the team.

The structure has been totally renovated, and offers more space inside as well as ample parking for customers — a welcome change from her former spot on Montcalm Street. Cacckello said the new space offers a perfect setting for the expansion of her services, which now includes Keratin treatments which give hair remarkably smooth and supple texture, she said. Certified in the Keratin technique, Cacckello has recently taught other stylists in the treatment as they participated in an international beauty show in Providence, R.I.

Spelling Bee raises funds for Bolton Free Library By Thom Randall

Chamber of Commerce, Bolton Fire Department, Heritage Village, Katz Spell, and McDonald Real Estate Professionals, and The judges collected $150 in bribes. The evening’s Master of Ceremonies Jeff Strief offered entertaining narration, backed up by the antics of Dame Edna, or Sally Defty. Judging the event were Ron Conover, Opie Sherman, and Betty Spinelli. Time Keepers were Hal Heusner and Carole Newell. Baker said she was pleased with the event and its outcome. She and library trustee Laureen “Emma” Calautti developed the bee after successful similar fundraisers in other communities in New England. “We’ve been trying to come up with unique ways of raising money, and this certainly fit the bill,” she said. “The money we raised definitely helps balance our budget.” BOLTON LANDING — The first-ever Bolton Community Spelling Bee, a fundraiser for Bolton Free Library held Sunday was a solid success, and it is likely to become an annual event, Librarian Megan Baker said. Spectators broke into spells of spontaneous laughter watching adults grapple with fifth-grade-level spelling words as high-schoolers coached them and members of the audience buying Lifelines or bribes to bail out their favored teams, Baker said. The audience numbered about 150, and $1,650 was raised for the library — much-needed cash to help fund the library’s budget which has been strained by recent cutbacks in government subsidies, Baker said. “The turnout was tremendous, and we’ll definitely do it next year,” Baker said Sunday night, hours after the event. Students circulated in the audience selling Lifelines and bribes, while the 10 teams sought to outdo one another. Baker said she personally bought two lifelines for the spelling team of Adirondack Phantoms hockey players who were struggling with a number of words. The winning team was Lakeside’s Martini Girls, a group of employees and customers of Lakeside Lodge & Grill in Bolton. These team members were dressed up in feather boas, gaudy earrings, and they wore spectacles shaped like martini glasses. Best Team Spirit Award went to TD Banknorth’s Money Talks team, which prompted an array of generous bribes for the judges, cash that boosted the benefit’s bottom line. They also brought with them currency frozen in a block of ice, presented to the audience as “Cold Hard Cash.” The team members were creative in choosing names for themselves, including No Non Cents, Legal Tender, and Loose Change, Baker said.

A member of the Faces By Ferdinand Team prepares to spell a word as she accepts the microphone from Bolton High School student Marissa Parrotta during the first-ever Bolton Community Spelling Bee held Sunday. The event raised about $1,600 for the Bolton Library, and about 150 spectators enjoyed the antics of the spellers and the game-show features of the competition. Photo by John Lustyik

Best Costumes honor was awarded to Faces by Ferdinand, because the team members were dressed up with bumblebee costumes, complete with yellow and black striped face makeup. The winning word that stymied the competition and handed the Lakeside team first place was “Ankh” the Egyptian hieroglyph for "eternal life." Beside the teams mentioned, competing were the Hula Honeys from Blessed Sacrement Church, the Bolton

Trains From page 1 Well-known as the creator of train exhibits across the country, Dunham is acquiring the former Great Northern Auto Parts outlet in Pottersville, and he plans to set up four major, intricate model train displays that feature detailed, realistic, lighted model cityscapes and automated operation of dozens of trains. Dunham is the creator of the famed Citicorp train display in New York City as well as extensive model train layouts in Cincinnati, Chicago, Omaha and Williamsburg, Va. that have been viewed by more than 5 million people. The Cincinnati display is a national attraction that exceeds 7,000 square feet. Steve Parisi, director of the Warrensburgh Museum of Local History, has seen Dunham’s displays in Manhattan and Cincinnati. The latter layout is housed in the city’s former train station that was restored to its original grandeur. “Clarke Dunham’s work is just brilliant — it portrays the role trolleys and trains played in the cities’ development,” Parisi said. “This will draw people from across the nation — particularly with train lovers. It will put Pottersville on the map.” Dunham said he will be formally acquiring the Great Northern in January, and the target date for opening the train museum will be July 1. He now has a lease agreement in place for the property. In a business plan that has spurred considerable investment in his Railroads on Parade enterprise, Dunham said his train exposition will spur development of other cultural projects in downtown Pottersville, which in recent decades experienced the closure of a number of businesses. Town of Chester Supervisor Fred Monroe said Dunham has a “great plan,” and he is well-qualified to make his enterprise a reality, considering his proven track record as a Tony-nominee Broadway set designer — and the fact that Dunham’s existing layouts elsewhere have attracted millions of visitors. “I think this is super — Dunham’s enterprise has the potential for a huge economic impact not only for the town of Chester, but for all of northern Warren County,” Monroe said. “We’re going to be doing everything we can to help make it happen.” Dunham said his Railroad on Parade will likely have a dramatic impact on Pottersville, predicting it will prompt the development of galleries and a museum of local history. His four layouts to be housed in the Pottersville exposition is to include a replica of the Hell Gate Bridge in New York City stretching over a replica of the Pottersville hamlet. This 90-foot display includes a towering curved railway mountain trestle spanned by three looming bridges and features trains traveling at three levels. The second display is a 750-square foot exhibit of miniature model railroads depicting New York City and Hudson River Valley scenes housed in a replica of a Victorian train station, complete with 30 automated trains traversing the exhibit at different levels. The third display depicts the 1939 World’s Fair, complete with the event’s original Railroads on Parade diorama with its “dancing locomotives.” The fourth display, titled Park Avenue, features New York City’s subway system with trains running under Park Avenue — featuring a Manhattan cityscape complete with a traffic jam — to Grand Central Station. Dunham’s plans call for the front of the existing Pottersville building and its interior front lobby to be fashioned after a Victorian train station. The lobby is to include a retail shop featuring train memorabilia, model railroad kits, and souvenirs including engineer ’s hats as well as Adirondack-themed items. Dunham has developed a marketing plan that includes reaching out to Adirondack tourists as well as train enthusiasts nationally. He proposes teaming up with other regional destinations, accommodations, and tour operators to set up package deals that have proven successful for other area venues. Dunham said his plans have been well received by investors, townspeople and noted train enthusiasts. “The enthusiasm for Railroads on Parade is amazing,” he said. “The way people have come together for this project is absolutely outstanding.” One of those on board is North Warren Chamber of Commerce president Barbara Thomas. “Clarke Dunham’s plan blows everybody away — this would be so awesome,” she said. “It’s so fortunate we have someone with his credentials right here in our back yard.” Dunham and Parisi both said Railroads on Parade would dovetail well with Iowa Pacific’s recent proposal to ramp up the Warren County’s railroad into a full operation with dome cars, ski trains and tourist excursions. “Everybody up here has been struggling for years, and its amazing things are now turning around so quickly,” Dunham said. Now, Dunham already has a modest train diorama set up in the railway’s terminal, the Depot Museum in North Creek. Dunham said he was eager to get his new Pottersville train exposition off the ground. “There would have to be some kind of earthquake for this not to happen,” he said.


High-schoolers hear that adversity builds character QUEENSBURY — A total of 167 teen-aged and pre-teen students from 24 area schools convened at a Leadership Conference held Nov. 3 at the Great Escape Lodge. Hosted by the Washington-Saratoga-Warren-Hamilton-Essex BOCES, the event showcased Saratoga Springs author and motivational speaker Jay Rifenbary who spoke about how to attain success by overcoming the challenges in life. Rifenbary, the author of “No Excuses,” advised the students to achieve their full potential by directing their own lives and embracing their misfortunes. He urged them to reflect on their losses as a way to become a better person at home and at school. After lunch, David Ashdown, coordinator for instructional technology integration programs, spoke to students about cyber-safety and gaining awareness of the impact and consequences online explorations. The students were selected to attend the event by their teachers and guidance counselors. They came from the 31 districts that comprise the regional BOCES as well as students from BOCES' Alternative High School, F. Donald Myers Education Center and the Southern Adirondack Education Center.

the five grants were the most any entity in the entire state received through this round of funding allocated through the state Water Conservation program, Wick said. “We are pretty thrilled,” Wick said, noting in the last round of funding through the program, Warren County received three awards totaling $350,000 — and those funded projects are now underway. “Our office thanks DEC for their confidence in our program and the many partners we work with to get conservation projects in the ground.” One of the grants, for $54,500, is to improve fish habitat in a two- to three-mile stretch of the Schroon River north of the County Home Bridge by placing boulders, installing woody structures and placing roots and brush into the waterway to make it conducive to nurturing fish. Constructing such underwater habitat in a barren, sandy stretch of the river connects two outstanding stretches of habitat and will likely boost fish populations as much as sevenfold for a considerable distance, Wick said. He noted the plan has the support of the independent group Trout Unlimited.Wick noted that as a result of several flooding events, including the County Route 11 washout of 2005, the Schroon River received thousands of tons of sand that obliterated a substantial portion of fish habitat which this project seeks to re-create. Another grant award of $186,850 was granted to fund a project to curb stormwater runoff flowing down English Brook into Lake George and reduce sedimentation. Sediment flowing in this stormwater during recent years has been deposited in a massive delta — measuring about 70,000 cubic yards — that now extends far into the lake and degrades recreation, navigation and the fishery, officials say. The project includes work to build sediment retention devices to prevent more sand and other solids from running from Hubbell Reservoir down English Brook. The money also is to fund research to identify prime areas to remove unwanted sediment, Wick said, noting hundreds of tons of sand and pollutants are now running down the waterway into the lake. The third award of $149,200 is to replace ag-

ing stream culverts in the Lake George watershed, to allow fish to regain their native pathways to spawning grounds which have in recent decades been blocked by the culverts’ configuration. The culverts, due to be replaced anyway due to their condition, have waterfalls at their outlets that brook trout can’t traverse. Most of this grant underwrites cooperative work with local town highway departments to replace existing, failing stream culverts with larger ones embedded into the waterways, allowing fish to easily pass through to upstream spawning grounds, Wick said. The towns will get these new culverts at no charge — infrastructure they’d otherwise have to pay for, Wick said. “We’ll now be able to upgrade these culverts with new ones at no charge to the towns, while restoring fish habitat existing many years ago,” he said. A fourth grant of $78,000 is to curb stormwater runoff in Glens Falls, and the fifth is for $4,500 to fund educational outreach programs to boost public awareness for water quality issues. Wick credited Bill Lupo of the state Department of Environmental Conservation for advocating for the grants, noting Lupo has “a strong commitment to protecting water quality.” He added the projects would likely be underway in 2012. Wick said he was taken aback with the news that Warren County received all five grants they asked for, while other entities across the state received merely a fraction of their requests or none at all. “I was shocked we got them all, because there was a lot of competition for this money,” he said. Walt Lender of the Lake George Association praised the work of Wick’s agency as well as other partner groups in an e-mail containing seven exclamation points. “Five for five!! — and at that level of funding in these tight times!! Absolutely AMAZING! Congratulations!!” it read. Warren County Administrator Paul Dusek also responded with praise and thanks. “Nice work and congratulations to Dave and Warren County Soil & Water District representatives and staff. I join in thanking DEC representatives for their support and confidence,” he said.

Veterans From page 1 chopper could respond, the 20-year-old was dead. Hundreds of Peluso’s peers died that day. The Scouts stared into the distance as Peluso concluded his thoughts. “We must never forget the sacrifice of all our soldiers,” he said. A rifle team of Ray Hensler Sr., Blanca Pierce, John Blydenburgh and Eugene Pierce fired their guns in a salute to those soldiers who died for their nation. In addressing the citizens, veterans, local firefighters and Scouts gathered for the service, Warrensburg Town Supervisor Kevin Geraghty spoke of his uncle Ennis, who was one of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. A warrant officer in the Marines, Ennis served in two wars, and was killed in the invasion of Iwo Jima in 1945. Kevin Geraghty added his uncle was buried in the family plot in town. Geraghty also recalled his uncle Bill who was on the U.S.S. De Haven destroyer when it was bombed and sank due to Japanese fire. Geraghty’s uncle survived, after spending hours in the frigid ocean in February. Geraghty’s father Elihu and uncle Randy also served in conflicts. In a prayer during the ceremony, American Legion 446 Auxiliary Chaplain Fran Poltanis urged all to work toward resolving conflict, rather than suffer the violence of wars. “Touch the soul of people in every land to form a brotherhood so their differences might be resolved,” she said. Legion Commander Carson Parker also called for efforts to resolve conflict. “We shall go forward together in a unity of purpose for the common good, in tolerance for those of different faiths and creeds,” he said as flags waved under bright skies.

Bob Lavergne catches up to ol’ ‘split ear’


ob Lavergne’s crew had seen the buck the day before and knew it carried some significant bone, but none had considered it was the buck of local legend known as “split ear.” Deer often wander into town to yard during the long winter months in Indian Lake, and folks here had seen the deer return year after year. In fact, a local taxidermist had recovered a matching set of sheds from the buck and mounted them on another cape — the impressive non-typical rack scored close to 190. But Lavergne was hunting in a stretch of property by the Cedar River, miles from town. No one in the crew expected the big non-typical to make an appearance. That, however, was about to change. It was the morning of Saturday, Nov. 6, and Lavergne decided to split from the crew who were making drives and still hunt his way along the side of a ridge where the crew had seen the deer the day before. Minutes later he caught movement along the ridge and pulled his 30-06 to his shoulder. “I wasn’t really concentrating on the rack, I knew it had good antler, but I was more worried about making an accurate shot,” Lavergne said. When he pulled the trigger, the deer “dropped from the scope,” he said. Upon approaching the deer, Lavergne said he was amazed at the sheer mass and tines — 21 in all. Then, he noticed the identifiable split in the deer ’s ear, and knew he had shot the big non-typical so many had pursued in the past. Sightings around town put the deer at more than 10 years old — an extreme age for a whitetail in the Adirondacks. The buck weighed just 178 pounds, making the rack, which stands a full 20-inches off the deer ’s skull, look out of character with the body. Lavergne, 44, is having the buck mounted and will have it scored once the drying period passes. Richard Johndrow, measurer chairman of the New York State Big Buck Club, studied photographs of the deer and estimated its net score in the 160 range.

Johndrow said the largest non-typical ever taken in New Yorks was the Homer Boylan rack taken in 1939 and it scored just over 244. The second largest was taken in St. Lawrence County by Ken Locy which net scored just over 225. There are 38 non-typical racks, he said, netting over 190 in the state. The 38th largest was taken by Frank Dagles in Bolton Landing in 1961 — a 15-pointer netting just over 190. Nevertheless, Johndrow lauded Lavergne for taking such a massive trophy in the northern Adirondacks. “It’s truly a dream of a lifetime to see a big racked buck that you can get a crack at,” he said.

Pennsylvania game warden killed Anyone who believes enforcing the law among men carrying high powered rifles is easy or lacks danger should take heed of the news regarding a Pennsylvania game warden who was gunned down in the line of duty by a poacher last week. Wildlife officer David Grove, 31, was David Grove killed in what state police called “a ferocious exchange of gunfire” after pulling over Christopher Lynn Johnson, 27, at approximately 10:30 p.m. Nov. 11. Police said Grove was conducting a routine poaching investigation in an area just south of the Gettysburg Battlefield when he witnessed Johnson, and a passenger, Ryan Laumann, using a spotlight to poach deer. According to police reports, Grove pulled over Johnson’s pickup truck, called for backup and called in Johnson’s license plate before ordering both men from the vehicle. Grove partially handcuffed Johnson, but as he was trying to secure his free hand, a gunfight between the two took place in which Johnson allegedly shot Grove four times with a .45-caliber handgun. One shot was a fatal head wound.

The next great war


ast week, I had the opportunity to attend a pair of local events focused on climate change. In Tupper Lake, The Wild Center hosted the second annual, Youth Climate Summit, an event that drew students from a wide range of high schools and colleges from across the Adirondacks and New York state to tackle the issue of climate change. On Friday, I joined an interesting consortium of concerned individuals at the Whiteface Mountain Ski Area for Wintergreen: A conversation about the future of winter recreation, sports and culture in the Adirondacks. A highlight at both events was the participation of a delegation visiting from Finland. The Finns, similar to Adirondackers, are a culture that comes from a land of ice and snow. As such, the Finns are experiencing many of the same issues that we must confront, including the economics of retaining their winter pleasures. Ted Blazer, CEO of the Olympic Regional Development Authority in Lake Placid, detailed the energy costs involved in making snow for the ski centers and for keeping ice on the refrigerated bobsled track, which has become essentially a “track in a tube”, shielded from the sun. The Finns have developed a similar “winter respite” so that the country’s population will be able to enjoy Nordic skiing, even when Mother Nature can no longer cooperate. Mikko Myllykoski, a director at The Finnish Science Center at Heureka, captured the audience with a presentation about the resort of Vuokatti, home to the longest ski-tunnel in Europe, which operates throughout the year. Thousands of skiers use its 1,210-meter route for training and pleasure. Although there remain a fair number of global warming skeptics out there, any doubters are welcome to visit me in hunting camp, where t-shirts and cotton pants have replaced the long johns and Malone woolies of the past. It appears Adirondack hunters will experience another complete deer

North River resident Bob Lavergne stands with the 21-point buck he shot Nov. 6 in Indian Lake. During the exchange, Grove did return fire and wounded Johnson in the hip. Johnson was later taken into custody at a nearby hunting camp. At a Nov. 12 news conference, Commissioner of Pennsylvania State Police Col. Frank Polowski described the shooting as “a ferocious exchange of gunfire.” Reporters at the shooting scene noted what looked like “multiple bullet holes in the door, mirror and running board of Grove’s truck.” The District Attorney in Adams County where Johnson is being prosecuted has said he will seek the death penalty in the case, which is allowed under Pennsylvania law for anyone who intentionally kills an offi-

cer in the line of duty. Johnson does have a criminal record. In 2002, he had a felony conviction for burglary in Adams County, Pa., and also pleaded guilty to endangering the welfare of a child. His felony conviction prohibited him from legally possessing a firearm. While such fatalities among game protectors are rare, the case reinforces the dangers these men and women face every day, often going into hostile environments many miles off the road with very little backup.

season, without a decent week of tracking snow. The decade of 1998-2007 was the warmest on record, and according to data the warming trend over the last 50 years is nearly twice that for the last 100 years. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, “warming of the climate system is unequivocal, as is now evident from observations of increases in global average air and ocean temperatures, widespread melting of snow and ice, and rising global average sea level.” While there are certainly a number of valid arguments regarding the causes of climate change, there is no denying the fact that global warming is occurring. For those who would claim otherwise, dual memberships with the Flat Earth Society are still available. The Youth Summit was inspiring, intriguing and innovative. The level of enthusiasm was incredible, especially when considering the issues that the current generation will be facing. At the gathering, I first spoke with Zac Berger from Lake Placid, who was instrumental in organizing last year’s inaugural event. The enthusiasm and ideas that were generated by the initial event were a concern of his. He explained, “We want to overcome some of the apathy that we faced in regard to our proposed actions such as composting and school gardens, recycling and energy saving measures.” “But, I believe the Youth Climate Summit is just the beginning of change and that if we accept the challenge as an opportunity; there is so much more that we can achieve.” I left the Summit with the knowledge that the next generation is willing to step up to the plate to confront what will

likely be the greatest challenge we have ever faced. My grandparents fought in the Great War (WWI) and my father and Uncles all served in the War to End all Wars (WWII). I came of age during Vietnam and lived through the end of the Cold War. However, the current generation will be the ones that will be sent to battle in the Climate War. It will be a struggle like none that we have ever faced, since the enemy resides comfortably in the luxury of modern day society. The battle will require simple steps, known by such terms as reusing and recycling, alterative energy and carbon reduction. These battle terms are far removed from such infamous names as Iwo Jima, Midway or Verdun; but they are no less important in the conflict. As a rule, American society is largely reactive. We have become too comfortable and complacent, as evidenced by the current financial troubles. If there is any hope of facing down the most looming threat that modern day society has ever faced, it will be in the hands of the next generation. From what I have seen and heard in recent days, it appears to be in good hands.

New Game Reporting Schedule A new NYSDEC regulation, that came into effect on Wednesday, Nov. 17, will extend the game harvest reporting deadline from 48 hours to 7 days. The new regs will allow successful deer, bear or turkey hunters up to a week to report their harvest to the DEC. Hunters can file the reports through the agency’s online reporting system or by calling 1-866-GAME-RPT (1-866426-3778). It is expected that the change will give hunters more flexibility for hunters in reporting their take. Harvest reports provide the important information that wildlife biologists need to gauge the populations of many game species. By helping the mangers, hunters are helping themselves.
