Public airs ideas for school cuts, programs




Veterans move memorial rock

By Thom Randall WA R R E N S B U R G — S u e Gerrain of Truesdale Hill sat at one of 10 tables in the W arrensburg High School cafeteria during a community forum held Monday, Nov. 28 on the future of education in the Warrensburg area. She listened to other local residents pr opose ideas, including how various enrichment and extracurricular programs cut in recent years should be reinstated — and that the quality education provided locally should be preserved. But she also heard talk of how the taxpayers deserved relief. Then she of fered a thought of her own. “For long-term educational p rojects, s chool di stricts should invest over time, bit by bit,” she said, noting that taxpayers would be happier with miniscule incr eases each year than be hit with a big tax increase every several years. The community for um was held in light of the state CONTINUED ON PAGE 16

Warrensburg mealsite may move to Countryside Home By Thom Randall WARRENSBURG — The Town of W arrensburg’s senior mealsite may be r elocated soon to the Countryside Adult Home o n S chroon R iver R oad d ue t o i nadequacies o f t he present site in the basement of the United Methodist Chur ch. The change is independent of the proposed closure of the upcounty satellite mealsite kitchens, an initiative which was recently postponed for at least four months. The planned change in the mealsite location is due primarily to dif ficulties of access to the basement site, W arren County Office for the Aging Director Christie Sabo said. Seniors now have to walk down a steep, narrow stairwell to get into the church basement, and county off icials are seeking to provide barrier-free access so people with mobility pr oblems can attend the daily lunchtime meals served there, she said. Also, i t i s d ifficult f or M eals o n W heels d rivers t o l ug heavy insulated containers packed with meals up the stairwell, Sabo said. The site has also aging equipment, minor mold gr owth problems in the kitchen. Ther e also has been a persistent problem with sewage backups, an issue which recently was abated with the installation of a grease trap. It was installed at the chur ch after sewage flowed out of a back r oom onto the floor of the dining area. Minor foul odors, however, still emanate from the plumbing. Sabo noted that the facility has passed state Health Department inspection, and the mold has been tested and poses no health hazard. About 100 meals ar e pr epared each weekday in the church’s kitchen for an average of 15 gathering at the site, plus for about 85 Meals on Wheels deliver ed to shut-ins in Warrensburg, Lake George and Thurman. The county now pays about $16,000 to $18,000 per year in rent to the church for the use of the kitchen and dining are a. The char ges include costs of keeping the equipment like freezers, coolers and commercial dishwasher in good working order as well as expenses related to utilities, snowplowing and trash removal, Sabo said. The Warrensburg mealsite is the most expensive satellite mealsite to operate among the eight in W arren County, she said. Cost of operation, including personnel costs, is $80,000 to $90,000 per year, Sabo estimated. About $30,000 of that expense is reimbursed by the state, she said. The move of the mealsite to Countryside is dependent on

whether any state aid to the adult home would be lost due to the shared use of the kitchen and dining facilities, county officials said. County Administrator Paul Dusek is now re searching that issue, Sabo said. Local mealsite personnel said the move to Countryside, in a rural setting 1.7 miles north of downtown, may cut down on attendance since four or five seniors per day now walk to the site for the meals. They said that the county had pr oposed months ago that a van would be pr ovided to transport seniors from downtown to Countryside in the mealsite wer e

moved there. Sabo said personnel of her agency have r esearched other potential sites, but Countryside was deemed the most viable. Mealsite cook Roberta Cassidy said that potential pr oblems in moving the mealsite to Countryside include sharing the kitchen facilities while the existing kitchen staf f ther e prepares lunch for about 45 r esidents. Storage space could also be an issue, she said. Sabo said the mealsite re location may occur as soon as January — i f t he m ove d oesn’t p rompt a l oss o f s tate a id t o Countryside.

Community Store re-defining The true meaning of the season image of small town America I


t a time when the holiday shopping season focuses squarely on big-box stores and online retailers, along comes the Community Store in Saranac Lake to capture our hearts and imaginations. The Ames department store in Saranac Lake closed in 2002, and no matter how hard small shop owners tried to collectively serve the “general store” needs of this community, more and more people began relying on the big-box destinations outside the Adirondack Park. When Walmart tried to build a supercenter here, village officials blocked the plan, forcing locals to make trips of 50 miles or more (one-way) to buy the most basic household items, such as underwear. It also gave the community a chance to create a department store for the masses, playing by home rule rather than corporate greed. We’re not naïve. We know Saranac Lakers will still buy goods online and take shopping trips to the closest Walmart or Target. But this Community Store has given Saranac Lake a booster shot of confidence. It has made Saranac Lake a shopping destination again. It has bought Saranac Lake 15 more minutes of fame. When the New York Times covered the Oct. 29 opening of the Community Store, its Business Section story was picked up by media outlets across the U.S. It captured the attention of The Early Show on CBS. It seems Saranac Lake is not only the coldest spot on the Weather Channel’s map of America; it is also one of the hottest retail destinations in the nation. “People want closer relationships with each other and with the companies with which they do business. They want a conversation. They want to be part of it all,” wrote columnist David L. Rawle on Nov. 15 for the Charleston Regional Business Journal. “That’s why the Saranac Lake Community Store came into being and will no doubt be successful.” Saranac Lake’s store — the first of its kind in New York state — was based on another community-owned department store, The Merc in Powell, Wyo. It’s only fitting that the Powell Tribune pick up on the New York Times story and compare the two communities and its “sister” stores.

“As it happens, Powell and Saranac Lake share more in common than a community-owned department store,” wrote the Tribune’s Tessa Schweigert on Nov. 17. “Both have a junior college. Both were named All-America Cities in the 1990s. Both have populations of fewer than 6,500 residents. Both have a rural flavor residents hope to keep alive.” called the Community Store “A triumph of main street can-do” on Nov. 14. Now Saranac Lake is gaining a reputation for fighting the Wall Street business mentality, and it is quickly becoming the poster child for communities that fought Walmart and won. Bloggers across the U.S. are relaying the New York Times report and asking readers what they think about Saranac Lake, its fight against Walmart and its decision to open a department store on its own terms. Comments on a recent blog posting at Glamour magazine’s website have been positive: “This is the coolest thing I’ve read in weeks.” “Capitalism at its best!” “Amazing! Good for them. Wish we could all do that.” Saranac Lake’s Community Store success has triggered a dialogue among small-town residents thinking about their own situations. Powell may have been Saranac Lake’s inspiration, but Saranac Lake is now poised to be an inspiration to many other American communities. And Community Store owners did this despite the recession, despite the failed actions of our federal government to stimulate the economy, and despite the big-box culture engrained in our society today. Now people from around the country will be visiting the Adirondack Park to see the Community Store and discover everything else this region has to offer. Saranac Lake has once again proven why it was named an All-America City in 1998.

Adirondack Journal - 7 vote upon the question of raising and appr opriating the sum of $2,618 for the expense of building said bridge.

•100 Years Ago – Dec. 1911• Tomfoolery proves fatal Frank Grif fin, 18, of Newcomb was accidentally shot by his 19-year -old chum Charles Murphy, near that place Nov . 30, 1911 and with his dying br eath absolved from all blame the friend who unwittingly inflicted the wound which he well knew would prove fatal. The young men wer e on their way home from Minerva wher e they had attended a dance Wednesday night. Early in the morning they stopped at Haven’s place, about half way between Minerva and Newcomb, to get something to eat. The place was in char ge of a young man named Geor ge W est, the Haven family having moved into the lumber woods for the season. The boys wer e given a lunch and while eating it were having considerable sport in a good-natured way . Finally young Grif fin stepped outside and stood in front of a window looking in. Murphy picked up a gun standing against the wall and holding it with one hand playfully pointed it at his chum and exclaimed, “Y our money or your life.” Murphy, who had no intention of firing it, was horrified when it went off. After the shot was fir ed, young Grif fin walked out to his cutter and than back into the house. Murphy did not know that Griffin had been hit until he saw him stagger . Murphy thought Griffin was fooling until he

fell to the floor. He asked the injured boy to forgive him and Griffin said, “There is nothing to for give,” he said. “I was as much to blame as you.” Arrangements were made to carry the boy home and he died along the way . Funeral arrangements wer e made fr om his late home. He was buried Dec. 3, 191 1 in the Newcomb village cemetery and ther e was a large attendance. Young Murphy, who has an excellent reputation, is heartbroken over the affair even though no one blames him. Relatives of the dead youth have tre ated Murphy with utmost consideration.

Man dies in motorcar crash

Jesse Smith, for two years employed as chauffeur by Senator James A. Emerson in Warrensburgh and well-known thr oughout this section, was killed in an automobile accident Dec. 1, 191 1 on the Saugerties Road near Rondout. Since leaving Warrensburgh about a year and a half ago, Smith had made his home in Glens Falls but had been working as a mechanician in various automobile factories and had worked in Rondout since Oct. 23, 191 1 at the Wyckoff, Church & Partridge Automobile factory. Jesse Smith was riding in a car which was being tested by Henry Amon when a shoe blew out which caused the machine to swerve fr om the r oadbed into the soft ground along side the highway. The car was brought to a stop by r unning into a stump

along side of the r oad. Smith either jumped or was thrown out of the car striking against a tr ee. Amon was only slightly injur ed. Smith was carried into the nearby residence of Mrs. Edwar d Legg and died just as they got him into the house. The funeral was held at the home of Smith’s mother at 244 Glen St., Glens Falls and the body was taken to Pottersville for burial. Smith leaves a widow who was formerly Miss Russell of Warrensburgh.

Conflagration at Stony Creek

The village of Stony Cr eek narr owly escaped being swept by fire early in the morning, Dec. 5, 1911 when a two-story building owned by J.E. V anderbilt and occupied by him as a dr ugstore, was burned to the ground. The fir e was discover ed about 2 a.m. by the night watchman at Halls’ Steam Mill, who saw flames issuing from the rear of the building. An alarm was given and the r esidents got out the hand engine with which they wer e able to save the surr ounding buildings. It was only with gre at effort, however, that the flames wer e pr evented fr om devouring the entir e village as the fir e had gained considerable headway when discovered. The entir e loss is estimated at $4,000 which is partially cover ed by insurance of $2,000. Mr . Vanderbilt, who came to Stony Creek about a year ago from New York City, bought the building from R.W. Clayton.

New bridge or not

A special town meeting will be held in Stony Creek Dec. 29, 1911 at Kenyon’s Hall, for a vote on whether or not the town shall construct a bridge over Stony Cr eek wher e the highway leading fr om Stony Cr eek station to Hadley intersects the cr eek and the

Danny Jackson of W arrensburgh was r esentenced to a term of four years in Auburn Prison and was taken there Nov. 30, 1911 by Deputy Sheriff George Hackett. Jackson was sentenced at the pr evious term of court for stealing a horse but was br ought back to be re-sentenced because of an error in the commitment. (Note: The detailed account of this unusual theft and subsequent chase by the sheriff ’s posse appear ed in this column in the April 9 Adirondack Journal.)

Calamities in Lewisville

Mrs. James Harris, 53, of Thurman dropped dead in Lewisville (River St., Warrensburgh) at about 3 p.m. Nov. 30, 1911 after she had stepped into a wagon to r eturn home fr om a shopping trip in this village. She had just finished shopping at J.F . Cameron’s stor e when the young son of David I. Combs, a r esident of Thurman, drove by and she hailed him and asked permission for a ride home. She hastened to overtake him and had bar ely seated herself in the wagon when she fell lifeless into the boy’s arms. She was quickly taken to the Wayside Hotel and Dr . C.B. Cunningham and Cor oner J.M. Grif fin wer e summoned. They pronounced death due to heart failure. Several times that day Mrs. Harris had mentioned that she did not feel well. Burial was in the W arrensburgh Cemetery . (Note: J. Freeman Camer on’s mer cantile establishment was approximately across from today’s Curtis Lumber store.) In other Lewisville news, W illiam Hall, while carrying two pails of boiling water at the Empir e Shirt Company’s laundry , slipped and fell on the floor, spilling the water over part of his body . One arm and one leg were severely burned. He is confined to his home in poor condition and Dr . C.B. Cun-

Letters to the Editor WARRENSBURG — The Warrensburg W restling Club r ecently made a donation to Richards Library, and the institution’s of ficials expr essed their appreciation this week. Throughout the year, the wrestling club is active in various fundraising endeavors for equipment they use as well as for local charities. The club’s fundraising efforts in recent years have helped not just individuals and community gr oups in need, but local taxpayers have reaped rewards. About thr ee years ago, the club paid $8,300 or so for new wrestling mats for Warrensburg Central School — a cost that would otherwise be borne by property owners in W arrensburg and Thurman. Wrestling club coach Lenny Baker , who has spearheaded the fundraising efforts, deferred credit this week to the many people in the community who donate to the wr estlers, as well as the others associat-

ed with the club that help raise the money. “This wr estling club could not exist without the generous support of the parents and people of the area,” he said, noting that alumni of the wr estling club give back to the community in many ways. “The wr estlers learn through their sport many life lessons that they carry into adulthood,” he said. The club has also sponsored the annual vintage snowmobile racing event

on Echo Lake, which has grown each year and draws hundr eds of people to the area each winter. Baker said this week that Richards library was a deserving r ecipient of the funds, considering not only their limited budget, but all they do for ar ea children and adults. “The library is a valuable r esource in our community and this is why the wrestling club has given them a yearly donation,” he said.

POTTERSVILLE — A prominent monument that for decades has served as a memorial to local veterans has been moved from a traffic island to a local park. The Veterans monument, er ected in 1948 by the Glendale VFW Post 5513 of Chestertown, was moved Nov. 3 fr om the intersection of Rte. 9 and the Olmstedville-Pottersville Road south to the Pottersville Park at the junction of state Rte. 9 and Valley Farm Road. The move was made not only to place the monument in a mor e pastoral and practical setting, but to accommodate potential r econfiguration of the uptown intersection, which has been planned for more than a year. Members of the VFW Post wer e on hand to witness the move, accomplished by the T own of Chester highway department employees and their equipment. The monument, in its inscription, memorializes W orld W ar II soldiers Edgar Armstrong, Charles Mur dock, Leon Neubuck, Charles Monr oe, and Nelson Johnson; Kor ean War soldiers Harry Linneman and Duane Barlow; and V ietnam V eteran “Ir on Duke” Willy Morrisey, memorialized with his own granite stone. Overseeing the monument relocation were VFW Commander T racy Evans, accompanied by post of ficers and members Harry Smith, Howar d Farmer, Ronald Robert, Rick Macewisz, Harry Br undage and Louis Russo. Accomplishing the work were Chester Superintendent of Highways Gary Clarke

and town highway employees, Howard Mead, Jason Monroe and Paul Hill. The work was with the help of W illiam J. Mueller & Sons towing firm, to which local veterans expressed their appreciation. The monument was set in its foundation Nov. 4 by employees of W arren County Department of Public Works. VFW of ficials noted that with the monument in its new location, the public will be able to more easily stop and view inscription commemorating local

veterans. The work was purposefully accomplished eight days before Veterans Day, when local veterans visited Chestertown, Adirondack and Pottersville and paid respects at the monuments in each municipality, honoring those who served in the U.S. military. Plans ar e now under way for a r ededication ceremony of the Pottersville monument to be held on Memorial Day 2012.

New book tells story of Lake Champlain Bridge ELIZABETHTOWN — Denton Publications and New Market Pr ess r ecently r eleased the 132-page “Lake Champlain Bridge Commemorative Book” to celebrate the new bridge connecting Cr own Point, N.Y . and Chimney Point, Vt. The book was r eleased on Nov. 4, just thr ee days befor e the span was opened to vehicular traf fic on Nov. 7 following an hour-long ribbon-cutting ceremony. “We felt an obligation to bridge the states of Vermont and New York, along with the counties ofAddison and Essex, by printing a book filled with the shared history of Chimney Point and Cr own Point,” said New Market Pr ess Publisher Edward Coats. “After all, it’s a commitment we make every week covering Lake Champlain community news in TheAddison Eagle, the T imes of Ti and six other weekly newspapers.” The 8.5-by-11-inch full-color glossy book includes 38 stories and mor e than 90 photographs and was pr oduced by staff at the companies’ New York and Vermont newsrooms. The collection of memories was designed to explore the history of the original 1929 bridge and the constr uction of the new one. “This book is a tribute to all those who worked night and day thr ough the frigid cold of our North Country winters and the blistering summer heat to r estore the Lake Champlain Bridge,” said Denton Publications Publisher Daniel Alexander. “None of us will ever cr oss this bridge without thinking of its importance to the people who live her e and have come to depend so heavily on the str ength of its existence.” The editorial of the “Lake Champlain Commemorative Book” honored Carl F. Peterson, editor of the Essex County News in Port Henry , N.Y., who wr ote an editorial in 1923 that eventually led to the construction of the 1929 bridge. There is also a copy of Peterson’s original editorial printed in the book so readers could see how it all started. Contributors to the book wer e: Renee Cumm, of Per u; Andy Flynn, of Saranac Lake; John Ger eau, of Westport; Fred Herbst, of Ticonderoga; Jon Hochschartner, of Lake Placid; Keith Lobdell, of Westport; Jeremiah Papineau, of Carthage; and Lou Varricchio, of Middlebury, Vt. Stories for the bridge book wer e organized in four categories: 1) old bridge, 2) bridge transition, 3) new bridge, and 4) historical resources from both sides of Lake Champlain. Old bridge: The history of the 1929 bridge is fully explored with timelines of its construction (1923-1929) and its lifespan (1929-2009); personal stories from people who had attended the Aug. 26, 1929 opening ceremony; a story about how the steamer Vermont III dictated the height of the span; and an investigative piece exploring why T i conderoga’s lobbying efforts to have the bridge built in that community fell short. There is also a story about the lake’s first bridge, built in 1776 between Fort T iconderoga, N.Y. and Mount Independence, Vt. Bridge transition: When the original Lake Champlain Bridge was closed on Oct. 16, 2009, r esidents and visitors were for ced to make a 100-mile commute ar ound the lake before a free 24-hour ferry was opened next to the bridge site on Feb. 1, 2010. Stories explor e the impact of the bridge’s closure to businesses, commuters, lake security and the ferry. There is also a story about blowing up the original bridge with explosives on Dec. 28, 2009. New bridge: Stories documenting the construction of the new Lake Champlain Bridge include interviews with the designer Ted Zoli and builders at Flatiron Construction; naming the new bridge; the impact the bridge construction had on tourism in Port Henry and Crown Point; and the historic journey of the bridge arc h, which was floated fro m Port Henry to Cr own Point on Aug. 26, 201 1, exactly 82 years after the first bridge opened. Historical resources: The book features resources on Lake Champlain history from the Crown Point State Historic Site, the Chimney Point State Historic Site, and the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum in Vergennes, Vt. The “Lake Champlain Bridge Commemorative Book” is $5.00 plus tax and shipping. Or der by phone at (518) 8736368 or online at www or www

They have remained in contact, and when Nicole moved back to the ar ea in 2009, they began their life together , while also supporting Nicole’s 5-year -old daughter , Vanessa. The bride’s parents also lost their house a couple years ago and are not able to assist with the wedding planning or payments. Miss Maines r emains out of work since 2009, pending a disability hearing to determine her status.” Donations fr om AWA members include, along with their values:  Sweet Basil, all food/beverage at cost; T otal Entertainment five-hour free reception (worth $1,300); Collignon Photography, wedding and reception shoot ($1,500); North Country Photoworks, engagement session ($300); Bigler pr oduc-

The total package value was about $7,650. AWA finishes with this statement: “This first annual prize promises to be a very special day in the lives of two people and their families. The AWA commands over 40 percent of the r egional market collectively among its membership and is home based in Glens Falls, at 206 Glen St.  AWA pr oduces the lar gest bridal shows in the r egion, and awards over $35,000 in fr ee wedding packages, prizes and giveaways from its vendors annually.”

board member Al Smith suggested that sports teams limit the miles they travel for interscholastic games. A district resident and parent named Sherryl decried the elimination of some advanced courses for the college-bound. In recent years, the Young Scholars and Odyssey of the Mind programs have been axed in budget cuts, she noted. “My concern is that my daughter has the absolute best opportunities,” she said. “We’ve cut quite a bit in the last few years, and I’d hate for these cuts to go any further .” Aineen Callahan, a WCS Fr eshman, said she was concerned about the cuts that eliminated home economics and guitar clubs, two of her interests. “I don’t see anything left we can cut,” she said. At another table, AnnMarie Richards and her daughter Lindsey Richar ds said they supported technology upgrades, and retaining or strengthening AP courses. In this gr oup, Irv West of Thurman suggested the school boost citizen volunteerism, as well as find ways to increase involvement of parents and other family members in their child’s education. Former high school librarian Elaine Cowin suggested that the school undertake energy audits and eliminate wasted ener gy in all its buildings. Imbalance in wintertime heating at the elementary school, she said, leads to windows being opened in some overheated classrooms. Parent Laura Weick said the school, in an ef fort to save ener gy, could turn of f many of their outside ar ea lights that are now lit all night long. At the other end of the table, Ruth Fr uda

suggested that the town and school district share services, equipment and facilities whenever possible. Tom Birdsall of Thurman suggested that the school could expand its of ferings by sharing specialized pr ograms and teachers with neighboring school districts. Sheila Mender of Warrensburg suggested that consolidating administrative services for school districts made sense. One superintendent and business manager could serve three or more school districts, she said. Paul Weick, a teacher at Bolton Central, said that WCS could intr oduce such enhancements as advanced online courses, like Bolton does, at a reasonable cost. “It’s a way to expand educational opportunities cost-effectively,” he said. He also suggested that some staf f development sessions could be eliminated. Fourth grade teacher Chris Brown, as well as Irv West, proposed that volunteers in the community devote time to r esearching and obtaining grants to fund programs or equipment at the school. Brown also said more activities ought to be developed for students beyond the classroom. Sullivan said that those planning for the school district’s future should not expect enrollment to fall any further, considering that thousands of new well-paid employees ar e expected to move into the r egion with the Global Foundries development in Malta. “Let’s not be short-sighted,” he said. John Palermo said he’d like to see some out-of-the box thinking on education. “We need mor e innovation and experimentation to impr ove educational methodology,” he said.

NORTH WARREN Cougar boys a versatile team By Thom Randall

By Thom Randall

North Warren Cougars

CHESTERTOWN — For years, the North Warren Boys Basketball Team had rosters of talented, dedicated athletes playing their hearts out against deep squads from schools twice their size or larger. Over recent decades, the program has produced several squads that accomplished the winning statistics that r eflected their har d work and talent. The 2007-2008 boys basketball squad was one of them. With their aggressive defense and har d-charging of fense, this gr oup pursued their dr eams and took their fans for a wild ride into the Section II Class D finals. This year’s group has the talent to achieve such a memorable season, coach Jason Humiston said. Regardless of the ultra-competitive Adirondack League, the 201 1-12 squad has the experience to take fans back to the glory days, he said. No less than six players with considerable experience ar e r eturning, and they've been practicing informally all summer as well as working out in the weight room. Also, the gr oup attended the Sain-

CHESTERTOWN — Sports gur us have said the Adirondack League western division in basketball is a wide-open race this year, and right in the r unning for division dominance will be the North W arren Cougars. The last several years, remarkably talented and dedicated female athletes have emerged at North Warren, compensating for the school’s small size. There’s a cor e group of these athletes r eturning to the girls basketball team, and they’ll doubtlessly be pr oviding a lot of thrills and memories for local fans. Seniors Kiera W arner, Cassie Maday , Chantal Millington, Margo Broderick, Jenna Monroe and Kierston W illiamson ar e all back and primed for action. These six ar e joined by Senior for eign exchange student Ana Deltor o, and Juniors Amber Frasier , Megan McDonough and Laura Tennyson — all promising players. Frasier, the Cougar JV point guard last year, will likely be a particularly valuable addition to the team. Warner and Maday ar e versatile, able to

WARRENSBURG Teamwork for Burgher boys By Thom Randall WARRENSBURG — During a recent practice session, W arrensburg boys basketball coach Steve Nolan glanced at members of his team lift w eights, while other pl ayers ran laps for an endurance drill. “It’s gr eat how much ener gy these guys are putting into their training,” he said. “They even like the intensity — I’m surprised.” Nolan, a second-year coach at W arrensburg High, is concentrating on building strength and endurance to give his team an edge in the extr emely competitive Adirondack league. Endurance will be needed in the transition game he plans on emphasizing this year. “The guys are working hard and adapting to the new system very well,” he continued. Last year was a disappointment, in part because two main forwar d players — R yan Belden and Hunter W erner, both 6’4” — were injured. This year, Werner ’s back, but the 2010-1 1 standout seniors — Mike Curtis, Nick Monroe, Aaron Seeley, John Joseph and Belden — are gone. There’s a lot of pr omising talent on the 2011-12 team, Nolan said, but the new leading players have yet to emerge. “Some guys have to realize their potential

as we get going in the season,” he said. “But the focus will be on team play, sharing of responsibility and unselfishness.” Each of Nolan’s 13 players — the longest roster in northern W arren County — have particular str engths, but Nolan said it’s their work as a whole squad that will light up the scoreboard. “We’re not going to be a success on talent alone — they have to have heart,” he said. Nolan declined to talk about particular players, noting that ther e’s no standout offensive player at this point, although several have the talent to step into that role. “At this point, we’r e developing chemistry while we figure out the best rotation,” he said. “We’re concentrating on the fundamentals of the game and we hope to be competitive each night.”

WARRENSBURG — Although the W arrensburg girls Varsity basketball team aren’t likely to be practicing with Duran Duran or the Thompson Twins playing on their boomboxes, the squad will likely be taking its fans back to the Burgher glory days of the 1980s. After years of fun, spirited play but disappointing outcomes on the scor eboard for Burgher g irls b asketball, t his i s l ikely t he year for a string of victories, reminiscent of the era of Lady Burgher dominance. The Burghers have no less than seven experienced seniors r eturning, joined by six athletic newcomers who have already made their mark in a Junior Varsity team that has dominated their opponents. That’s n ot a ll. I ncluded i n t he r eturning seniors ar e the 2010-1 1 squad’s thr ee top scorers: Isabella Szabo, Alexa Bryant, and five-eleven-plus Ashlie Morehouse. Morehouse was an 2010-11 All-West Team All-Star selection last season and Szabo led the team with 24 three pointers. And Senior Jaci O’Brien, out much of last season with an injury, is back for 201 1-12 with her years of experience as a playmaker. And the talented trio of Savannah Mosher, Montana Sheridan, and Zhane Santisteban will be called upon to bring Senior leadership to the team as well. Newcomers include Juniors Amy Toolen and Chiara Russo, Sophomores Mika Morehouse, Merissa Hayes, and Kerrigan Roth, and Freshman Karlee Duell bring great ath-

One element of the game the team needs to work on, is the aspect that’s plagued the Burghers for years — turnovers. “It’s no secret that we need to protect the ball,” Smith said. “We will need to work on limiting our turnovers if we ar e going to have a chance finish near the top of the W est Division,” Smith said.

Lake George Warriors LAKE GEORGE — Big changes ar e in store on the local har dwoods, as the Lake George Boys Basketball T eam faces a new season. Last year, a “dr eam team” held court — the fearsome trio of Matt McGowan, Alex Hladik and Matt Stover . Ranging fr om 6’4” to 6’7”, the thr ee took turns ripping apart opponents’ defense, sinking baskets fro m all directions. What can you say about losing a group of six talented, veteran seniors, three of whom could easily dunk the ball? This week a new era begins, coach Dave Jones said. “We’re r ebuilding — working har d in practice, focusing on the fundamentals,” he said. “We’re looking for new guys to step up and help us with the big loss to graduation we experienced.” Leading the gr oup will be Senior 6’2” guard Aaron Chambers, who started in about half of the 2010-11 games. “I’m looking to Chambers and the other Seniors for leadership this year,” Jones said. The other Seniors on the 201 1-12 team ar e: forward Ryan Moll and guar ds Pete Fisher,

‘War Eagles’ have promising future in wrestling By Thom Randall

Although the joint squad was founded only thr ee years ago, it has alr eady positioned itself among the established teams in the tri-county area, as well as producing talented athletes. This year, although only two Seniors ar e back, the team has no less than 40 wr estlers between the V arsity and Junior V arsity squads r epresenting Lake Geor ge and Hadley-Luzerne. “This year the Varsity is very, very young and we’ll have an okay team, but the solid participation bodes well for the futur e,” LaBombard said. “Inter est in wr estling is catching on, and the future is bright.” Among the standout W ar-Eagle wrestlers are Luzerne middleweight wr estlers Justin Cook and Zach Corlew, both Seniors. The talented Dan Jar dine of Lake Geor ge is back, heading up a gr oup of under class athletes that show plenty of promise for upcoming seasons. “Our team is practicing hard — their work ethic is great,” LaBombard said. “A few guys tick me off, but as a gro up, they are very ded-

BOLTON LANDING Bolton boys confident, strong By Thom Randall BOLTON LANDING — The Bolton Boys Basketball team will be venturing into a new competitive l andscape t his s eason, a s th ey will be will be battling for supremacy in the ever-tough Adirondack League. Last season, Bolton was competing primarily in the Mountain & Valley Athletic Conference, which is comprised of smaller, rural schools. Local sports observers are aware that the action in the Adirondack League is mor e physical, and r eferees tend to allow mor e contact. Bolton Coach Steve Showers is awar e of the changes his team faces. “Our guys will have to be ready for more banging ar ound,” he said. “W e’ll be going through a key adjustment period.” Showers said his squad is up for the challenge.

Bolton girls in transition By Thom Randall BOLTON LANDING — Last season, the Bolton Girls Basketball T eam played a hybrid schedule of primarily Section VII opponents but didn’t of ficially compete in a league. This year, Bolton’s basketball squads ar e officially members of the Adirondack League, and they will be facing Section II schools f ar l arger t han t he o nes i n S ection VII playing in the Mountain and Valley Athletic Conference. Just as challenging for the Eagle Girls Basketball Team will be the loss of thr ee outstanding players: Charlotte Caldwell, Alana Peterson, and D.J. Servelli, now point guard for the SUNY Adirondack Timberwolves. To say its a r ebuilding year is an understatement. The Bolton 2011-12 squad has no returning starters.

Burgher wrestlers will be achieving their goals Warrensburg Varsity 2011-12 Wrestling Schedule

By Thom Randall WARRENSBURG — This pr eseason, Burgher wrestling coach Mark Trapasso has seen a phenomenon rar e in the decades he’s been mentoring. There’s mor e than a few wr estling uniforms in the coaches’ office gathering dust, rather than soaking up sweat. Only 18 wrestlers turned out for the Varsity wrestling program this season rather than a number in the mid-20s. Last year , two or thr ee wr estlers were vying for each weight class. This year, most all of the wr estlers don’t have to. “This is a tough sport, and unfortunately we had some pr omising wrestlers stay on the sidelines this year,” he said.

The 2011-12 North Warren Varsity Boys Basketball Team includes (front, left to right): Justic e Parker, Zack Har t, Ethan S chenke, Nick Sapienza, Anthony Sapienza, (r ear): Coach Jason Humist on, Rober t French, Karl Brugger, Benn Frasier and Kristian Seeley. Photo by Nancy Frasier

The 2011-12 Warrensburg High School Wrestling Team includes (front, left to right): Jerico Converse, Lane Oehler, Desmon Allen, Will Yarmowich, (row 2): Austin West, Jon Vaisey, Nick Nedelcu, Denver Berry, J.T. Richards, (rear): Blake Vaisey, Rogers M cLaughlin, Dakota K imball, Lucas Nelson, Charlie Gik nis, and Jonathan Russell (Not pic tured): Beecher Baker, Andrew Fish and Trevor Baker. Photo by Thom Randall

Heading up the list of veterans this year are Class D Section II champions Lucas Nelson and Jon Vaisey. Exceptionally strong for his weight, Vaisey has a r eputation for using that strength to his advantage, muscling his opponents around on the mat. An accomplished, intelligent wrestler, Nelson knows the holds instinctively and how to combine them to his advantage, Trapasso said. “I’m looking for V aisey and Nelson to p rovide l eadership, t o i nspire t he other team members to put in as much effort into wr estling as they do,” he said. They ar e joined by Junior Beecher Baker and sophomores Nick Nedul-

cu and Denver Berry — all aggr essive wrestlers who enjoyed winning seasons last year, Trapasso said. Among those r ounding out those middle weight classes ar e Seniors Charlie Giknis and Andrew Fish, both with considerable experience and skills — as well as pr omising Sophomore W ill Yarmowich, who’s alr eady demonstrated his athleticism in his years on the squad. The combination of a roster of dedicated, skilled wr estlers, yet a limited lineup — r epresents a wild car d for a program that has routinely seen a good number of its athletes win championships, Trapasso said.

Nolan added that one particular focus this season will be on boosting defensive intensity. “Last year, we relied on a half-court offensive game,” he said. “This season, we’ve got to cr eate opportunities to score — make the easy baskets.” Win or lose, Nolan says his squad will be pr oviding plenty of action for the crowds that always turn out for the games, bearing witness that the town has been basketball-crazy for 74 years. “We hope to be entertaining every night, one way or another,” Nolan concluded.

Burgher girls

Bolton boys from page 22 “The idea of playing hard each game has been instilled into the players,” he said. “We have a solid nucleus of players returning.” That could be an understatement. Although Bolton lost a talented trio

from page 18 After several days of practice, Humiston said he was encouraged with what he witnessed. “The kids look skilled and they’re progressing each day,” he said. Last year’s campaign was a disappointment, and the team veterans are determined to move forward toward high goals, Humiston said. One of the highlights of this year is the return of Kristian Seeley, who tore his ACL last year and was benched for the 2010-11 season. He joins Senior veteran Benn Frasier , 6’4”, Karl Br ugger, 6’2” and Anthony Sapienza, 6’1” — and this quartet will undoubtedly be a powerful inside force. They are complemented in the backcourt by veteran ball handler Ethan Schenke, a Junior , along with thr ee versatile classmates draf ted fr om Junior V arsity — Justi ce Parker , Robert Fr ench and Zack Hart, as well as pr omising Fr eshman Nick Sapienza, who was on the 2010-1 1 team roster as a mere 8th grader. The depth of the squad and the versatility of the players will allow more options on the of fensive attack. Coach Humiston said that with the speed, ball-handling abilities and work ethic of the 201 1-12 squad, they’d be pursuing a new style of play. “We’ll be pushing the tempo more than in the past,” Humiston said. “Instead of letting things happen, we’r e going to make things happen.”

The 2011-12 North Warren Varsity Basketball Team includes (front): Amber Frasier, Chantal M illington, K iersten Williamson, Jenna M onroe, Cassie Maday, (rear): Megan McDonough, Kiera Warner, Margo Broderick, Laura Tennyson, Ana Deltoro and Coach P.J. Hogan.

from page 19 Smith noted that the competition in the Adirondack League was perennially tough. He’s also looking for some mor e strategic defensive play , noting that he’ll be looking for the players to trap the opponents mor e and for ce turnovers, game play the rookies have already shown skill in. Smith added that he’s looking for the defense to be aggressive enough to allow more leeway for the off ense to produce. “Hopefully our defense will be strong enough to keep us in the game,” he said. The players are likely to step up to the challenge, considering their work ethic.

of 2010-11 Seniors — Matt Smith, Caleb Kneeshaw and T yler Calzada — they have a lar ger gr oup of experienced players returning. “Our main goal this year is to improve every game,” he said, noting that his lineup will be anchor ed by Senior Mitchell Jordon and Juniors Billy Smith and Dustin Fr ench. Jor dan and Smith

Bolton girls from page 22 Bolton Central’s sports pr ograms have the r eputation of taking young, raw talent and crafting competitive teams. The team is 11 deep, and boasts five Seniors, Coach Luke Schweickert said this week. “We’ve got decent team speed and r esilient players,” he said. “Our strength lies in our youth.” Schweickert added that the team will be playing pre ssure defense and a transition game. “Seniors Megan Flynn and Rosie Denne will need to provide the scoring punch and leadership, while young players including Fr eshman Guar d Sarah Calzada and shooting

were starters in 2010-1 1. Smith has been a key player on V arsity since the eighth grade They’ll be backed up by Seniors Tim Flynn, CeeJay Lofland, Nathan Breault, Dominic Figueroa and Evan Malone, as well as Carl Ciccar elli, a Junior and Alex Maxam, a Sophomor e, Showers said.

guard Olivia Seamans set the tempo on defense,” he said. Seamans and Calzada are Freshmen. Local sports fans know that Sophomor e forwar d Olivia Clesceri is an excellent rebounder, while Molly Schoder and Kim Wright are both good perimeter defenders. Schweickert said he’d be looking to Madlyn W ilson, a Junior for leadership, as well as Seniors T o ri Persons, Marie DeLorenzo, Rosie Denne, Megan Flynn and Courtney Kincaid. Schweickert added that the team’s success could depend on the performance of the squad’s thr ee Sophomores, Kim Wright, Molly Schoder and Olivia Clesceri. With the younger players demonstrating a lot of talent, Schweickert pr edicted that two years fr om now, the team will enjoy a winning season.

Although the Cougars lack height, they excel in determination and energy. “These girls are an aggressive, experienced squad,” coach P.J. Hogan said this week. “I’m expecting a lot of steals fro m our girls, forcing critical turnovers.” Who can forget last year’s games, when the core group of veterans employ ed swift passing, good court per ception, and aggr essive defense to blast past many of their opponents? Or when they earned a berth in the quarterfinals of the Section II tournament, then losing by only six points to number-one seed Heatly? Without a doubt, this year will be memorable. The team’s experience isn’t just due to scholastic play. All but two on the team have been playing competitive AAU ball off-season to keep their skills sharp and instincts keen, Hogan said. “Having worked together so much, the players have good chemistry,” he said. “They anticipate each other ’s moves.” The players aren’t resting on their laurels, however — they are practicing har d to sharpen their skills further , Hogan said.
