Sales tax hike would shift tax burden to non-residents, supervisors say By Thom Randall QUEENSBURY — The proposed Warren County sales tax increase from 7 to 8 percent will stave off pending double-digit county property tax hikes and would mean lower net taxes for most residents while shifting much of the burden to tourists and transients, eight county supervisors said Monday. The supervisors held an unprecedented press conference to detail how $7.6 million has been cut from the budget in recent months, which includes eliminating more than 50 coun-

ty jobs — but the county still faces a deficit of $3.9 million or so, and has nearly depleted financial reserves. These reserve funds, normally used to stabilize taxes or meet short-term obligations, were spent prior to last year on keeping taxes artificially low while county expenses increased, county Board of Supervisors Fred Monroe said. The depleted reserves, among the lowest for the state’s counties, put Warren County in financial jeopardy, necessitating borrowing — and incurring this debt at a higher rate due to a newly-reduced bond rating, Monroe said.


To rebuild the reserves, avoid double-digit county property tax increases for many county residents, a boost in sales tax is the best available solution, Monroe said. Increasing the sales tax by 1 percent will provide about $14 million in extra revenue, with about $6 million of this sum shouldered by tourists, secondhome owners or transients — resulting in a lower total tax burden for county residents, he said. “We believe this is the best solution for residents and reducing overall taxes,” he said.

RAY BROOK — After three legislative bills dealing with the Adirondack Park Agency failed to garner state Assembly sponsorship earlier this year, Agency Chairman Curt Stiles is now seeking input from local governments and environmentalists on re-drafting the APA Act. And with the potential rewriting of the agency’s legal foundation, representatives from various groups are outlining what they would like to see changed in the APA. If adopted by state legislators, amendments to the APA Act could drastically alter the mode and operation of the agency and its authority over private lands in the Park. These stakeholders apparently have long lists of aspects they would like to see changed. Adirondack Council spokesman John Sheehan said Monday that his environmental group would like to see more teeth put into APA enforcement. Unlike most land-use authorities, APA enforcement personnel typically cannot issue tickets for obvious violations. Instead, costly and lengthy hearings result when enforcers report infractions. The Council would like to have APA enforcers empowered to issue tickets or stop work orders on-site similar to other municipal zoning officers. Of primary interest to the Council is a provision in the affordable housing bill that would institute an agency subdivision permit fee. Most zoning regulating agencies charge fees for the permit process. The APA currently doesn’t charge a review fee and the permitting costs are now shouldered by state taxpayers. The housing bill is one of the three APA-related bills now stalled in the state Legislature. But if the bill did pass, such a fee would be instituted for largescale subdivisions. “Especially for big projects, which take years in review, some kind of modest fee seems reasonable,” Sheehan said. “Otherwise the people of the State of New York are subsidizing the cost.” In early October, Stiles issued a request for input from local governments regarding changes to the APA Act. In response, the Adirondack Local Government Review Board and the Adirondack Association of Towns and Villages drafted a 16-page response, detailing numerous historical gripes that have long split local officials and the APA. In November, Stiles drafted a letter to every town supervisor in the park, asking for input. “When we talk about regulatory reform, we are talking about the act itself, the regulations which interpret the act and the State Land Master Plan,” Stiles said. “I would look at attacking them in that order.”

CHESTERTOWN — Clutching an awards citation, North Warren 7th grader Alyssa Jensen sipped a cup of punch during a reception at her school’s annual Patriot’s Pen/Voice of Democracy awards ceremony. Minutes earlier, she had won a top award and $250 for her essay on how veterans and servicemen deserve recognition. “This competition has been a good way to show veterans how much we care,” she said. “They don’t get as much appreciation these days as they deserve.” But Thursday, they did receive plenty of recognition, as a dozen or so members of V.F.W. No. 5513 shared the auditorium stage of North Warren Central School with a group of students who were awarded for their patriotic essays. Alyssa, top winner in the Patriot’s Pen contest for sixth through eighth graders, read her essay to the audience. Students and other citizens can honor veterans, she said, by flying the American flag, participating in parades, visiting memorials, even reciting the Pledge of Allegiance proudly, she said. Also, honoring veterans can be expressed by visiting them and taking care of them when needed, she said. But honoring veterans can be accomplished in other, less apparent ways, Alyssa said. Students working hard in school to get a good education, in order to make wise voting decisions and serving our communities is also a way of honoring veterans, she said. “The veterans must know that their devotion and sacrifice will be forever remembered in the hearts of their grateful countrymen,” she said. The 2009 Patriot’s Pen contest was a joint academic assignment in the 7th and 8th grade Social Studies classroom of Jean Kubaryk and the English classes of Candy Fischer, plus the sixth grade class of Mary Matrose. In addition to Alyssa, awarded for their Patriot’s Pen essays were: Grant Cooper, Second Place; Daniel Hill, Third Place, Sofia Robbins and Jacob Dunkley, tie for fourth, and Meghan Eagan and Khadeeja Stewart, tie for sixth. A Teachers’ Choice Award went to Dan Wilson. The Voice of Democracy competition, sponsored by the National Broadcasters Association in conjunction with the V.F.W., calls for senior high school students to prepare and record a spoken essay on patriotism — this year ’s assignment focused on heroism. In this division, Melissa Frederick won First Place, followed by Sarah Fuller, 2nd; Ashley Maresca, third; and Edward Jay, fourth. Frederick’s essay extended the concept of heroism beyond veterans and service men and women, exploring the selfless dedication of those in human-service agencies — particularly volunteers — working to alleviate poverty, hunger, abuse and oppression. “It doesn’t matter how we harness our inner hero, as long as we all take our inherent goodness and use it for the betterment of the world around us,” she concluded in her narration. Paul Mazur, Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs at Adirondack Community College was the ceremony’s guest speaker. Once a Political Science and Russian Language professor, he advised the students that writing a compelling essay not only required a persuasive argument, but comprehensive research.

V.F.W. Chaplain Ron Roberts, in his ceremonial invocation, recognized soldiers on duty overseas and urged all to remember former North Warren student Jeremiah Monroe, who was killed in action this summer in Afghanistan. The veterans onstage were presented with a special gift of a letter of sentiment and a depiction of a patriotic star, both crafted by student Joseph Allen. The letter called for all to remember the veterans, particularly at Christmas time. Kubaryk said she was enjoyed the competition, because of the students had the opportunity to meet and get to know the veterans. “The students, by investing their time and energy, are giving a gift to the veterans,” she said. “Also, I appreciate the strong community support.”

character as well, school Guidance Counselor Michael Therio said. “Jeff has very specific goals, aspirations and the drive and ability to achieve them,” Therio said, noting his achievements in academics, music, athletics and community service. Jeff has been an integral component of the Cross Country, Basketball and Baseball teams for four

years, Therio said. An accomplished saxophone player, he’s been involved in North Warren Jazz Band, Senior Band and Marching Band throughout senior high school. Jeff has earned high marks performing in regional saxophone competition, and has played in the All-County Jazz Band during his Sophomore and Junior Years. Also, Jeff displayed other aspects of his musical talent when he played a lead role in last year ’s school musical “Anything Goes.” Jeff has also taken a college level course related to Organization of American States. His academic achievements earned him status as lead regional delegate to the group’s national convention in Washington DC this fall. As a Junior, Jeff also participated in Rotary Youth Leadership Awards training program. A leader among his peers, Jeff has also served as Class President and Treasurer for each year during his high school experience. He has

served as Student Council Treasurer, and as a member of Students Against Destructive Decisions. Jeff has also served as a vital team member of the Envirothon, Quiz Bowl and Rube Goldberg competitions. Jeff ’s hobbies include astronomy which has been not only his passion, but it serves as a focus of his future plans along with Science. He’s a founder of the Adirondack Skywatchers, an astronomy club in which he is active. An avid hiker, Jeff has climbed seven of the Adirondack high peaks in the past three years. Despite a busy schedule, Jeff has still found time to assist other students with Science tutoring and working part time as a greenskeeper on a local golf course. “With his leadership, his many talents, and dedication to goals, Jeff is an exceptional representative for the North Warren,” Therio said.

Christmas in Warrensburg graced with snow, robust crowd, festive atmosphere WARRENSBURG — This year ’s Christmas in Warrensburgh event not only offered a wide range of traditional activities for children and families, but it was blessed with a little extra magic besides, event organizer Teresa Whalen said as it concluded. “With a snowfall beginning early Saturday afternoon, it gave the event that traditional holiday ambiance of a White Christmas,” she said mentioning the activity at the tree lighting ceremony at Bennett Memorial Bandstand. “Kids were very excited, running around in the snow having fun throwing snowballs while people were singing carols.” Dozens of children enjoyed making gingerbread houses, ornaments and crafts including winter toys at the town hall, converted for a day into “Toyland.”. Some children focused on fashioning Origami cre-

ations, including wildlife and miniature boats, while others weaved birch bark into fish, or created watercolor paintings or decorated bookmarks — all was under the tutelage of North Country artisans. Dressed as an elf, Skye Gregson, daughter of Barry Gregson of Schroon Lake’s Adirondack Rustic Gallery,

fashioned wooden toys for children to play with. Outside, children took carriage rides around the town hall in a downsized rig pulled by miniature horses. Several unusual white reindeer were on site in pens, for children’s enjoyment and edification — included were educational signs on their pen describing

the creatures habits and habitat. While the churches around town hosted bazaars and food sales, Riverside Gallery and Miller Art & Frame hosted craft demonstrations including rug hooking, spinning, weaving and porcupine quill work. Saturday night’s concert at St. Cecilia Catholic Church, the Adirondack Recorder band performed a lengthy concert, featuring several musicians and vocalists from New York City, and the presentation was well received by a large crowd, Whalen said. “It was an incredible concert, and it ended with the crowd prompting an encore,” she said. The group played a selection that was representative of the era when Samuel de Champlain discovered Lake Champlain 400 years ago, Whalen said. At the tree lighting ceremony, Town Councilman John Alexander showed up

soon after finishing his routine five-mile walk through town — and snow was adorning his coat. He greeted the 60 or so people showing up for the ceremony, and talked about how a lot was going on in town and how Warrensburg was fortunate to have a tra-

ditional celebration imbued with family values. Monday, he recalled the varied activities spurring a sense of excitement around the community. “You could feel the electricity in town,” he said. “There was quite a festive atmosphere.”

•100 Years Ago – December, 1909• Motorcar exhaust: a remedy? About five inches of snow fell Nov. 25, 1909. The next day it rained all day than it turned off cold and froze a very hard crust. Sleighs and wagons are both in use at present. December started in with genuine winter weather and on the first day of the month it was one degree below zero. Days are shortening at the rate of two minutes every day. (Compare this with our contemporary 50 degree December days!)

Wild time in the old town Charles Baker, proprietor of the Chestertown-Warrensburgh stage line, was on a trip Nov. 27, 1909 when a trace unhooked on the downgrade near Charley Taber ’s place, just outside of Warrensburgh. One frightened horse of the team of grays made a lunge slipping the neck yoke from the sleigh tongue. The team started into a run down Main Street, having broken loose from the sleighs. Baker was dragged from the front seat over the dashboard and he landed heavily on his head in the hard crust of the snow. His chin and the left side of his face was badly scratched and bruised. The team continued on a wild pace at a breakneck clip until they ran into a tree near Second S. One of the horses was knocked off his feet but was not badly injured. Baker was stunned by his fall, but soon recovered his equipoise and walked back to the village to attend to the repair work. There were no passengers in the stage at the time of the accident and it is lucky that in their wild flight, the team did not collide with any other rigs on the street.

Inflation good for farmers Compared with 15 years ago, the man behind the plow can be happy considering the goodly increase in the cost of foodstuffs, a good share of which lands in his pocket. In 1895 the farmer sold his potatoes for 45 cents a bushel which is about the same as it is now but that year potatoes were scarce and in 1909 there is a bumper crop. Straw was worth $6 a ton and this year it is worth twice that amount. Wool was worth 8 to 15 cents a pound and now it is worth 25 to 30 cents per pound depending upon the quality. Hides were two and a half to three and a half cents a pound and now they are worth seven cents. There has been a great increase in the cost of meat carcasses. Farmers now pay more for the grain they feed their cows but milk and butter have greatly increased in price to the joy of the farmer but to the distress of the homemaker.

Warrensburg Town Court report Dec. 2 — Justice Mindy Fisk presiding • In a plea bargain, Timothy Randall, 61, of Warrensburg received a plea bargain on his Misdemeanor charges of Public Lewdness and Endangering the Welfare of a Child. He pled Guilt to one violation of second-degree Harassment and Judge Fisk imposed a $100 fine with a $125 surcharge, and he issued a six-month order of protection barring Timothy Randall from having contact with a 13-year-old girl. He was charged Sept 18 after witnesses alleged that at a King St. home he pulled down his pants and started to masturbate in front of the girl.

Students visit Silver Bay in mentor program This fall, students in eighth and ninth grade participated in two separate field trips in coordination with the BCS Mentor Program. The teacher student mentor program is an opportunity for an additional layer of student support to be provided at Bolton Central School. These trips were designed to encourage camaraderie, respect, and teamwork among each class and their assigned Mentors. October provided the eighth grade with a chance to visit Silver Bay. Students were involved in a day of events, which included rock climbing and kayaking. Involved in overseeing the activities were their teachers John Gaddy, Jennifer Trowbridge, Laurie Blanchard, Jessica Foy, Lori.Humiston, Nicole Williams and Steve Showers.

Basics of chemistry portrayed to students Chemist John Fisher recently demonstrated the phenomenon of “phase change” Nov. 13 for second- and third- graders. Students took part in activities that included water changing from a solid into a liquid and into a gas and back again. They also learned about changes for dry ice and liquid nitrogen. Among many demonstrations, Fisher showed the young students how the air in a balloon can change to a liquid, then to a solid and then back to a gas to reinflate a balloon.

Town advertisements prompt split vote The town board held a short business meeting Nov. 17 and issues were discussed such as a filling up the skating rink in the youth pavilion with water to make ice, if weather permits.

Personal news Birthday wishes go out this next week to Frank Gallup, Suzie Baker, and Roland Hennesy on Dec. 12, to Loretta Tillema on Dec. 14, to Freda West on Dec. 15, Amanda Baker, Brian Angel and Tom Palleschi on Dec. 16, to Bob Baker Jr. on Dec. 17 and to Adorna Wright and Milton Kennedy on Dec. 18. An anniversary wish is out to Ginny and Joe Mosher on Dec. 17. Little Nicky LaPradd of Massena recently spent a long weekend with his grandparents, Theresa & Jeff Grants on South Johnsburg Rd. He is the son of Jaleen and Anthony LaPradd. What if the “season to be jolly” lasted all year long? Where would we put all the frowns? I’m still angry about the new burn barrel law, those newspapers and small empty food item boxes sure add up. Is it really all of Thurman’s barrels that pollute the world or maybe would it be space ships, planes, rockets, jets, diesel trucks, autos, furnaces, factories, etc. Why was all this “bad air atmosphere” not noticed when everyone in Thurman burnt papers, had only wood stoves, had sugar houses and yet lived to be in their 90s or nearly that?

First reported local lucky hunter An eight-point dressed buck, 184 pounds, was backed up in a truck to my doorstep so that I could see for myself how lucky this hunter was on Nov. 30. Jim and Dot Mosher, hunting partners as well as husband and wife, got this deer while hunting in Thurman. Jim is now 75 years young and has been hunting since he was a boy. Back in 1950 he got the biggest deer -- over 200 pounds. In 1997 he took first place in Chestertown with a ninepointer with a muzzleloader, and again in 2004 took first place in Nemec’s Sport Shop competition with a fourpointer. He says he did not accomplish all of this without his hunting partner ’s help. This year he entered his catch in Nemec’s contest. Dot Mosher was a kindergarten teacher for many years in Warrensburg school but enjoys the outdoor outings with her husband, a deputy sheriff for many years. They are reportedly enjoying their retirement.

Correction on election tally A vote tally for Charles Bills was incorrectly printed in the Nov. 28 edition of the Journal. Bills had 207 votes for town council. As reported, Bills will retain his seat.

Park From page 1 According to Review Board director Fred Monroe, the overarching issue for local governments is a lack of influence at the agency. Created by the APA Act in 1973 to monitor the APA, the smaller review board has little sway in the selection of APA commissioners or influence over issues of concern. Monroe argues that allowing local governments to select or nominate individuals for vacant APA Board of Commissioners seats is a fair and reasonable request and would go a long way in balancing the needs of the state

with those of the local population. “If you have adequate representation, then you feel like your interests are protected,” Monroe said. Three APA Commissioners are former board members of the Adirondack Council, while two come from local government. Unlike non-profit green groups, lawsuits against the agency aren’t often allowed per state precedent. “Environmental groups and clubs do have the power to sue the APA and DEC to seek judicial review of their administrative actions,” Monroe wrote in his list of proposed changes. “APA and DEC actions and policies appear to frequently be made in response to those judi-

cial review lawsuits. Local government officials are democratically elected to represent the concerns of their constituents. When they bring lawsuits seeking judicial review of APA actions they are met with arguments by the state Attorney General that they lack standing to sue.” Monroe argues that the local government’s lack of power to sue over agency decisions skews the balance between the needs of municipalities and those of environmentalists. But for Stiles, there is one driving problem with the Act as it currently stands: the vague terminology regarding shoreline setbacks. Stiles said that the waterfront setback language must be clarified and in many cases

strengthened to further protect Adirondack water bodies. Last week, a nine-county lawsuit seeking to nullify recently adopted APA shoreline setbacks, was largely defeated in state Supreme Court. Monroe and many other local officials had argued new setback policies had inappropriately extended the APA power to restrict land use — and should have been a matter for state Law rather than the APA act. While environmentalists have argued that the unspoiled beauty of the Park needs to be preserved, local officials have countered that preservation is suffocating economic development.

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there. The children were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads. And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap, Had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap. When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter, I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter. Away to the window I flew like a flash, Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash. The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below. When, what to my wondering eyes should appear, But a miniature sleigh, and eight tinny reindeer. With a little old driver, so lively and quick, I knew in a moment it must be St Nick. More rapid than eagles his coursers they came, And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name! “Now Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen! On, Comet! On, Cupid! on, on Donner and Blitzen! To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!

Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!” As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly, When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky. So up to the house-top the coursers they flew, With the sleigh full of Toys, and St Nicholas too. And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof The prancing and pawing of each little hoof. As I drew in my head, and was turning around, Down the chimney St Nicholas came with a bound.

He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot, And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot. A bundle of Toys he had flung on his back, And he looked like a peddler, just opening his pack. His eyes-how they twinkled! his dimples how merry! His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry! His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow, And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow. The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth, And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath. He had a broad face and a little round belly, That shook when he laughed, like a bowlful of jelly! He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf, And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself! A wink of his eye and a twist of his head, Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread. He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work, And filled all the stockings, then turned with a jerk. And laying his finger aside of his nose, And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose! He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle, And away they all flew like the down of a thistle. But I heard him exclaim, ‘ere he drove out of sight, “Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!”

Cookies and Milk for Santa

For most of us, the holidays are comprised of Christmas holiday celebrations and traditions. Many family traditions are handed down from generation to generation. Newer traditions are adopted when families merge. This makes for some very interesting holidays indeed! Some traditions are simple to carry out, however, others require quite a bit of effort.

In the weeks leading up to Christmas, homes are usually filled with mouth-watering aromas from baking holiday goodies. From cakes, candies to cookies, many of these treats are packaged in baskets or cookie tins for holiday gifts. Since we always bake weeks before the holidays, we always store many of these goodies in the freezer so they don’t go stale. When Christmas nears, we have an assembly line to put together our treat packages and add a Christmas card and bow on top.

It doesn’t matter if there is a fireplace in the house or not. Every child hangs a Christmas stocking out for Santa and his elves to fill up with goodies and candy canes. The bigger the stocking the better. This is usually the first thing checked on Christmas morning when the children wake up, full of anticipation.

Remember this? Santa must be very full by the time he’s done delivering Christmas gifts. Children around the world leave cookies and milk for Santa, hoping they’ll wake up to find crumbs and an empty glass. On farms, they often leave hay out for Santa’s reindeer!

Christmas Decorations Without a doubt, one of the most important holiday customs in the United States is the family Christmas tree. Year after year, trees are adorned with treasured ornaments and are carefully stored once the season is over. The ornaments alone often bring back happy childhood memories and are handed down once that child grows up. Most houses are all decked out with garland, mistletoe, and wreaths. Some families go all out and put up Christmas lights outdoors. What a treat! It’s these decorations that families come to love and make for a very festive atmosphere.

Who doesn’t look forward to a party? Parties are the usual Christmas Tradition, whether it’s with work associates or family members. It’s a time for family and friends to get together, exchange gifts, and celebrate the holiday season. Often, these parties are for decorating the tree and decking the halls, while making plans for Christmas Day. Don’t forget to help with the food preparations to ease some pressure off of the host.

Football Games

Gifts Gift-giving is one of the most classic Christmas traditions ever and the merchants know it. This is the most profitable season for any store and you’ll find decorations and gifts in these stores as early as August. Don’t start shopping too early or you’ll probably end up spending too much.

Do you have any sports fanatics in your family? Then you probably know that football games are a crucial part of the holidays. The men are usually glued to the TV while the women are preparing or cleaning up after the meal. This may not be a desirable situation, but often it is inevitable.

Christmas Cards


This custom is becoming less popular, however, companies still find it good for business. With the cost of cards and postage, lists are becoming very limited. Since the holidays are so busy, many people don’t take the time anymore to send out Christmas cards. It’s a real treat to receive a Christmas card so if you’re considering stopping the tradition altogether, just send them to very close friends and family and keep the custom alive.

Love them or hate them, fruitcakes are here to stay. Avoid the urge to recycle and do not give away a fruitcake from the previous year. The recipient may actually be someone who eats it. Imagine their surprise when they discover it’s stale and as hard as a brick.

Renowned horse statue resurfaces in Stony Creek By Thom Randall STONY CREEK — For nearly four decades, it was a landmark near Middle Hope, New York. When it vanished, local residents were puzzled, and amateur detectives tried to determine its whereabouts. But recently, it appeared as a new roadside curiosity in Stony Creek. This looming white statue of a rearing stallion has now been erected in front of Wolf Pond Stables. Claudia Wheeler-Anthoine, owner of the stables, said the arrival of the rearing stallion statue was a surprise. She said the large statue, crafted by an artist in North Carolina, was a gift of original owner of the stallion, Linda Manzo and her daughter Lori Leemans. Claudia has been giving lessons for years to Manzo’s granddaughters Ashley and Emily Leemans, and she has been boarding the family’s horses. The two girls had also been in Claudia’s 4-H group. For almost 40 years, the stallion statue, over 9 feet tall, stood in Linda Manzo’s front yard, on state Rte. 9W near rural Middle Hope, a hamlet in the Town of Newburgh. Two generations of residents have considered the horse a landmark. Reporter Michael Randall of the Times-Herald Record of Middletown, NY wrote several weeks ago that the stallion’s move north will now “make it harder for folks around here to help out-oftown visitors navigate through the Town of Newburgh.” Claudia said she has not only fielded phone calls from curious people seeking in-

formation about the stallion, but a fair number of drivers are now stopping in front of her property and taking a look at the statue. “The stallion has its own following and fame,” she said. Lori Leemans, owner of the Stony Creek Family Campground, said that she and her mother had been thinking about the most appropriate destination for the stallion statue after her mother decided to sell her home and move to Warrensburg recently. Instead of installing the horse at the campground, they decided to surprise Claudia Wheeler-Anthoine with a gift. Linda Manzo had decided to relocate to the Adirondacks following the 1999 death of her husband Mike, at the age of 59, due to Alzheimer ’s disease, their daughter said. “My dad wanted to retire in the Adirondacks and he loved that horse, so we’re happy our family is reunited in the Adirondacks and that horse is up here with us.” Moving the horse created a minor phenomenon, as people driving up the Northway slowed down to take a look at the looming horse, with its head sticking out the back of a pickup tailgate, Leemans said. While in Newburgh, the stallion was a traditional target of local teenagers, who in annual pranks painted certain of the statue’s body parts varied colors for holidays -- red for Christmas, green for St. Patrick’s Day, pink for Easter and blue for the onset of winter, Claudia said. While the pranks are now history, Claudia says she indeed will decorate the horse for Christmas -- with a wreath. “He’s magnificent, even though right now he may need a paint job,” she said. “He’ll be here for a long time -- he’s not going anywhere.”

PICK UP YOUR COPY OF THE PARALLEL PROBLEMS — Warren County native Kathryn LaMartina, now a Water Resource Manager for the South Florida Water Management District, visited relatives recently in Lake George — and she expressed interest in the local battle against the lakeweed milfoil in Lake George and Brant Lake. Shown here viewing Lake George, she remarked on how nuisance species are also affecting waterways in Florida, although the infestations there — toxic algae to Burmese Pythons — are far different than the milfoil or Zebra Mussels encountered in the North Country. She said she was impressed that local and regional agencies and individuals were taking the problems of nuisance species seriously, and taking action before the infestations dominate vast areas of the lakeshore and displace existing biota, or plant and animal life in the lake.

Burghers prevail in clutch overtime battle Bolton’s 11 three-pointers a highlight By Thom Randall BOLTON LANDING — A barrage of three pointers, key clutch plays and one-sided foul problems defined a boys basketball game Monday that was decided twice in a final moment — bringing fans and coaches to their feet. Trailing in both regulation with just seconds on the clock — and then in overtime with milliseconds remaining, Warrensburg fought back and managed to win by one point over the Bolton Eagles in a 67-66 basketball game that launched the 2009 season for both teams. While at times Warrensburg was winning by as many as 10 to 12 points, Bolton fought back through the contest by sinking a total of 11 three-pointers which gave them the lead in both regulation, then in overtime with seconds to go. In regulation play, Bolton’s torrent of threes put them ahead by a comfortable margin while only seconds remained. “It looked very grim at this point,” Burgher Coach Rich Schloss said after the game. Down 6 points with 6 seconds left, Burgher Junior Mike Curtis then sank a three-pointer, Bolton answered back with a basket, the Burghers fouled on purpose and retrieved the ball, and Burgher Senior Brendan Frye hit a second three — then Frye made two foul shots with a mere 1.1 seconds on the clock to send the game into a four-minute overtime. While the lead changed hands in this four-minute extra session, Bolton was again on top as the final seconds counted down. Eagle senior Dom Pfau drove to the basket but was fouled, and his shot put Bolton up by one point with 9.8 seconds to go. Burgher Senior Mike Perrone shot a jumper from the corner but it was long, teammate Ryan Belden rebounded then threw up a Hail Mary under the basket — it came up short — but junior John Joseph rebounded it, tipping it in as the buzzer sounded. Frye with 33 points and Pfau with 27 points led the offen-

sive show, highlighted by Bolton’s three-point shots which frustrated the Burghers defense, Coach Schloss said. “It was unbelievable,” he said. “Whenever we were up 8, 10 or 12 points, they’d throw three-pointers on us. We went into a tight 2-3 zone then lightened up into a 1-2-3 to fight it, but they still shot them,” he said. “We were in their face, but they still hit their threes.” Eagle Coach Dave Montero said his team enjoyed their long-distance firepower. “The threes kept us in the game,” he said. Fouls, however, may have shut them out. Bolton committed four fouls in the game’s opening minutes, and had several players in foul trouble early on. At the end of the first quarter, Montero switched to a zone defense, helping contain the flurry of fouls. But by the end of regulation, Bolton lost two starters, plus a third during overtime. Warrensburg, however, had no foulouts, although two starters finished with four infractions. Backing up Frye’s blistering offense were Belden with 11 points, Joseph with 10, Curtis with 7, Sophomore Hunter Werner with 4 and Senior Ben Nicols with 2. For Bolton, Pfau was assisted by Senior Matt Peterson with 11, Freshman Bill Smith with 10, Junior Tyler Calzada with 8, and Sophomore Mitchell Jordan, Junior Matt Smith and Senior Dan Brown with 3 and Junior Caleb Kneeshaw, 1. Burgher Coach Rich Schloss complimented Bolton’s aggressive play and blistering offense. “Bolton has a really good squad,” he said. “They’ll do very well this year.” Normally stingy with compliments, Schloss added that he was proud of his own squad’s two last-second, come-frombehind scrambles which showed their tenacity. “Our team just never gave up — our players could have quit but we fought back and won,” he said, adding praise for Hunter Werner, who off the bench hit two critical shots. “And Brendan Frye really ‘lit it up’ with 33 points — it was fun, but we have a lot of work to do for the season.” Bolton has a full schedule ahead, with a matchup against Crown Point Friday, Westport on Monday and Lake Placid on Tuesday, Montero said. “Warrensburg’s a tough team with their experienced re-

turning Seniors,” he said adding praise for the Burghers. “They’ll be contending for the championship in the Adirondack League West Division.”

Burghers launch season Fourth grader tallies victories in go-kart racing with decisive win WARRENSBURG — Breaking away from a disappointing 2008 record, the Burgher Girls basketball team made a statement Dec. 1 when they defeated Johnsburg 39-26. Trailing 11-10 at the end of the first quarter, Burgher Coach Scott Smith and his crew made some adjustments, and then held Johnsburg to only 15 points over the next three quarter “I’m very pleased with my team’s defensive effort,” Smith said. For the game, senior Kaitlyn May scored 16 points plus grabbed 11 rebounds — both the best of her career, Smith said. “Kaitlyn had a very good second half, scoring 12 points,” he said. “It’s nice to see her step up this way.” Playing off the bench, sophomore Burgher Tessa Acuna proved her potential by sinking four points and tallying nine rebounds, Smith said. “It was a very good team effort, with seven of our 10 players scoring,” he said. Seniors Kate Taddeo and Holly Gheen each scored six points, followed by Kayce Duell with four, Isabella Szabo with two points and Ashlie Morehouse with one. “I’m very happy with the contributions from everyone on the team,” Smith said. “However, we still need to work on taking care of the ball, and it looks like we’re improving every day.” For Johnsburg, Kelsey Williford led her team with 12 points and Keri Cleveland tallied 10 points. Smith said the team’s 2009 debut against Johnsburg got the Burgher ’s season off to a good start. “Hopefully this is a sign of good things to come,” he said.

WARRENSBURG — Last spring, fifth-grader Lane Saville, 11, of Warrensburg set a goal for himself. “For my first year of racing I want to be track champ,” he said this week, recalling a pledge he had made in April to himself and his parents, Kirsten and Kelly Saville. Driving his go-kart April through October — never missing a Saturday night race — Lane drove his way to a championship — Rookie Junior 1 Class — at Turkey Trot Raceway on a clay eighth-mile racetrack in Argyle, where he also was awarded Most Improved Driver. Lane also traveled with his family to Caroga Creek Raceway for a four-week fall series where he finished fourth. He

also drove five asphalt races at other sites. Lane said he has already set a new goal for himself in 2010. “It will be my first full year of racing asphalt, and I want an asphalt championship,”he said this week. The best thing about racing, Lane said, is twofold. “It’s great going fast, and I get to spend time with my family,” he said. Lane and his parents Kelly and Kirsten expressed thanks to Lane’s crew chief, Uncle Kerry Saville for his work in getting his kart race-ready each week. Special thanks also go to Lane’s friend Rick Davis Sr. of Arlington, Vt. for support, to Sargen Racing of Green-

field for weighing his kart, to Killer Grafix of Milton for body graphics, and to Powder Works of Johnsburg for chassis powder coating. Thanks also go to his sponsors, which include local firms: Lambert Excavation, Adventure Racing, Warrensburg Car Care, NAPA of Warrensburg, Oscar ’s Smoke House, Braley & Noxon Hardware, Nemec’s Sports Shop, Dragon Lee Restaurant, Empty Pockets Farm, and Adirondack Barbell. Besides motorsports, the other interests of Lane — a fifth-grader at Warrensburg Elementary— include fishing, video games, riding a quad ATV and playing in the school band.

SATURDAY December 12, 2009

2009 season grinds to a halt The snow arrives ... finally! E arly in the week, the region finally received the first significant snowfall of the season. Of course, the snow didn't arrive until after the hunting season had ended. This year ’s season proved to be one of the warmest and snow-free hunting seasons on record. Without snow cover for tracking, the odds of seeing deer fall firmly on the side of the whitetail. It was a long season and I'm glad it's over. Now, I hope to focus my attention on those plump, ruffed grouse that were so evident when I had a deer rifle in my hand. For the sake of the local economy, I hope the current snowstorm is significant enough to jump start the ski season. If not, it appears that there’s more on the way. It’s amazing the different scene that a few inches of fresh snow can produce. A carpet of snow can instantly obliterate the accumulated debris of a season, with a fresh, clean, white scene.

Cougars in the news North Country Public Radio (NCPR) recently aired a two part series on mountain lions in the North Country. The program revealed a growing number of mountain lion sightings that have been reported across the region. The NCPR report also detailed an alleged mountain lion attack on horses that occurred this summer in St. Lawrence County this past summer. I have visited the topic of mountain lions in previous articles and I continue to receive numerous emails, letters and phone calls regarding such sightings. Although I have never witnessed a lion, I firmly believe what others have reported, including my own siblings. Known as a Ghost cat, Catamount, Puma, Painter, Panther, Mountain lion or Cougar, the nation's largest cat was at one time distributed across the North American continent from southern Canada to the tip of South America. However, there has been no solid evidence of its existence in the Adirondacks since the last bounty was paid in the late 1880’s. Oddly, the last cougar in New York was taken in St. Lawrence County, where the towns of Degrasse, Russell and Canton remain a hot bed of most recent sightings.

Current cougar knowledge Most outdoor travelers recognize and understand the restorative aspects of nature. It’s a fact that is evident when one witnesses how rapidly a field returns to forest. Nature works quickly. Consider the fact that moose have repatriated the park with a viable breeding population in less than 30 years and accomplished the feat without any human intervention. They came back on their own when the time, and the land, was ripe. Beaver, considered extinct at the turn of the century, were restocked in the Adirondacks beginning in the early 1900’s. By the early 1920’s, beaver were so plentiful that the state was forced to reopen a trapping season on the animal. Currently, the park’s beaver population is considerable. In fact, wildlife biologists believe it was the beaver that actually brought back the moose, through the creation of new wetland habitat. In the west, mountain lion populations have already started to boom, with states like Montana, Wyoming, and Colorado declaring the cats completely recovered. Officials believe that changes in habitat are responsible for cougar returning to Northwest Kansas, Minnesota, Michigan, South Carolina, Tennessee and Iowa. A population of nearly 500 cats is believed to inhabit southern Ontario’s Algonquin Park. There have also been sightings reported in Vermont, New Brunswick, Quebec, Maine and Massachusetts. Some believe that the slow reappearance of the animals in the east could be the movements of these large ranging cats. Increased protection of wild lands and reduced human hunting pressure may have helped cougar and other predators by protecting the animals and the prey they eat. “Nationwide, there's obviously a wildlife population expansion that's occurring,” explained an official with the Kansas Department of Wildlife, “In the prairie and Midwest, predators like black bears, wolves, and bobcats are beginning to return to spots where they haven't been seen in years. While most news about the environment may be of doom and gloom, I think the cougar is a real wildlife success story.”

someone would eventually discover a roadkilled cat. Others chalk the sightings up to a case of mistaken identity or released cats. The released cat theory is highly credible. The United States has a huge, underground market for exotic cats, such as African lions, tigers and even mountain lions. While cute at a young age, these cats become increasingly aggressive and dominant. Even after owners have them declawed, they are still dangerous animals. Tired of the liabilities of owning a dangerous cat, and no longer able to afford the 8-10 pounds of meat the cats require daily, it’s understandable that an owner can come to release a pet into the wild. The most farfetched, yet commonly reported mountain lion story is the theory that the state, with the knowledge and/or assistance of various environmental groups, has been secretly releasing mountain lions and/or wolves across the park for many years. How, why or with what funds the groups have accomplished such a secret feat has never been fully explained to me. In the story, the ‘Men in Black’ now wear green and never tell anybody what they’re up to. Witnesses claim that “state officials,” (usually a local Environmental Conservation Officer) secretly take a microchip out of the dead cat and swear the witnesses to silence. If this is the case, we better bundle our children and lock the door whenever they come by in that spaceship with flashing lights. Released animals, never having fended for themselves in the wild, often show little fear of humans. In fact, some believe they will gravitate toward humans looking for food. Possibly, this explains why there seem to be a number of cougar sitings in one location for about a month, then the cats are never again seen. It would be very difficult for a declawed cat to obtain food or to defend itself from dogs. Without claws, a cat couldn’t climb a tree to escape a pack of dogs or coyotes. This may also explain why no one ever finds the remains of cats. As a rule, coyotes generally don’t leave much behind. Despite numerous pockets of wild, remote lands, wildlife officials do not believe that a viable, self-sustaining population of mountain lions exists in the park. Most experts agree that the released pet theory explains the majority of such sightings. However, nature is rarely reliable, it remains in a state of flux. The likelihood of cougars traveling a wildlife corridor from Ontario’s Algonquin Park across the St. Lawrence River into New York, as some have suggested, is quite feasible. However, I still can’t understand how such a cat could travel unseen from the St. Lawrence River to Willsboro or Minerva, Newcomb or McKeever, Thurman or Thendara or any of the two dozen other locations that I’ve relieved reports from.

s you read this we’ll be closing the curtains on another northern zone hunting season. This time of year is always a tad deflating. Cleaning out the fridge at camp. Making ice fishing plans with lifetime hunting chums that rarely materialize. If only hunting season lasted all year ... the world would be a happier place. Except for the deer, of course. Oh, and the hunting camp widows. At least the newly wed ones who still miss you when you’re gone. For my crew this season will be marked by a number of great memories — culminating in one of the largest deer we’ve taken in years. Nevertheless, like most camps, we saw a lot less deer this season, especially does. I’ve heard the same almost universally across the board. Crews that traditionally put a baker ’s dozen on the meat pole hung maybe half that this year. Interestingly, though, state wildlife officials are predicting that the overall take will be up slightly higher than last year. Senior Wildlife Biologist Ed Reed told me that, in spite of the anecdotal evidence, the “reported take to date is actually a little ahead of last year.” “We won’t know how this translates into a calculated take until after the season when we can determine the reporting take,” he said. Reed did say hunters also told him they believe the deer herd seemed smaller this year, and said his personal experience in the woods also followed that trend. But, he made a good point in that the weather definitely didn’t make life easy on us. “The weather was horrible for deer hunting most of the season with no snow cover and warm temperatures. The deer just weren’t moving much, especially during the daylight hours, although I did see quite a bit of buck sign in the woods. Our deer check efforts at meat cutters seemed to be low early in the season, but the past couple of weeks have picked up considerably,” Reed said. A look at local buck contests shows a similar trend, with a majority of the bucks weighed in the past couple weeks, though most are reporting less deer overall. The weather gods did smile on us the final weekend, and most had at least a day with tracking snow — even in the valleys. I know a handful of local camps took advantage. The Euba Mills Outlaws in New Russia, for example, more than doubled their season-long take in one weekend, and, word is some guy from E-town named Rabbit broke a long buckless lull with a big-tined eight. Good stuff. John Gereau is managing editor of Denton Publications and an avid outdoorsmen. He can be reached at

Cougars in the East Despite such facts, New York state wildlife biologists do not believe that there is a cougar comeback occurring in the state. They cite a lack of physical evidence such as scat, hair, DNA or a carcass. With the growing popularity of ‘Trail Cameras,’ there’s a strong likelihood that somebody would eventually capture a photo of a cat. Likewise, the train of thought goes, if cougars are often being witnessed along the roadways,

Gary Varmette of Crown Point submitted this photograph of a spike horn piebald deer he shot in Saratoga County on the opening day of the southern zone season, Nov. 21. The deer was approximately 70 percent white with patches of brown and grey. Pictured with Varmette is his cousin, Larry Beemis.

Bill Kohen, of Elizabethtown, shot this massive 8-pointer on the last day of the 2009 northern zone season. The buck weighed 182 pounds after being run ragged chasing does and sparring with other bucks for dominance.
