Scenic railroad Santa’s worth the wait in Chestertown may extend into Newcomb By Jon Alexander NORTH CREEK — Executives of the railroad company seeking to operate the Warren County railway in the southern Adirondacks confirmed it may also buy a 20-mile stretch of track extending into Hamilton and Essex counties. Iowa Pacific Holdings, seeking to be Warren County’s railroad operator, has pledged to operate ski trains connecting to the Capital Region, New York City and Vermont, as well as scenic train trips complete with dome cars and upscale dining excursions. Promising to establish regular freight service deep into the Adirondacks, the company has garnered the support of a significant portion of county supervisors. Iowa Pacific president Ed Ellis said if the company is granted the Warren County contract it will also seek to buy the privately held northern

Groups spar for Cuomo’s ear on Adirondack issues By Jon Alexander

Jacob Bolton of Horicon tells Santa his Christmas wishes Dec. 11 at the Town of Chester Municipal Center, while Mrs. Claus writes the boys’ remarks down in her holiday notebook.

ALBANY — With Andrew Cuomo moving into the Governor ’s mansion in less than a month, the battle for his heart and mind regarding Adirondack policy is heating up. This week, the president of Land and Liberty Foundation — a newly formed property rights advocacy organization — lambasted the region’s state regulatory agencies in a New York Post guest editorial. In the article, Karen Moreau asserts the Adirondack Park Agency and state Department of Environmental Conservation regulations are strangling the life out of Adirondack communities. Moreau also broadcast her message on a regional radio program. She said although the timing of the propertyrights onslaught wasn’t intended to correlate with the lead-up to Cuomo’s inauguration, her

Serious Personal Injury CHESTERTOWN — Rich Dwyer looked at his fellow Rotary Club members scurrying around the Chestertown Municipal Center last Saturday, readying for a visit by Santa. A line of far more than 100 children and family members stretched through the hallway and out the back door. “We’ve been doing this for the kids for nearly 40 years,” he mused. “I can remember when we had this event outside at the Dynamite Hill woodpile and it was 20 below, and the adults would be freezing and the kids were fine.”

Helping wrap presents, decorate and prepare refreshments were Jon and Lynne Hagaman, Glen Vogel, Bill Wildermuth, George Stannard, Bob Kelso, Ed Belanger, Ron Gill, and others. Dwyer looked at his watch and predicted the time of the jolly holiday man’s arrival. “Santa was about a half-hour late last year on the fire truck, and we told the kids it was the economy’s fault — he couldn’t afford oats for the reindeer and they were on strike,” he quipped. “But this year, we sent out Judge Jim McDermott to get Santa, and he’ll be on time, no question.” The hallway was now packed with

Behind Dwyer was a crew of Chestertown Rotary Club members firing up computerized printers to provide families with free photos of their children with Santa. Ready to go into acton taking pictures, printing them and assembling them in mats were Larry Hodgson, Bill Tierney, Jim Crawford, Artie Gangeri, John Grady and Shep Peck. Jim Fregoe was arranging hand-wrapped gifts the group would present to children — trucks, robots and computer games, Slinky toys, dolls and stuffed bears. The gifts were bought with about $1,300 from the Rotarian funds, Club treasurer Bruce Hodgson said. The cost of the morning’s event would total about $2,000, he added.

Gaslight demolition begins, officials hail progress LAKE GEORGE — Another benchmark in a 12-year effort to create an environmental park was reached this week as work began to demolish the Charley’s Saloon building on the former Gaslight Village plot. On Dec. 13, workers started dismantling the building, which was part of the former Gaslight Village amusement park, for decades a core attraction for Lake George. In a cooperative effort between the state government, environmental groups and local municipalities, the former Gaslight Village — targeted by developers for commercial buildings or condominium developers — was procured to create a park that will help stem pollution flowing into the lake as well as providing an environmental park. This week’s initial demolition effort is the first phase of clearing the site for creating the park and constructing a natural stormwater treatment system to benefit Lake George. Plans call for the 12.7-acre property straddling West Brook to be turned into an environmental park to include festival grounds and wetlands that filter out stormwater pollution. The park is envisioned to include as walking and bicycling trails, wildlife-filled marshes, and scenic overlooks. An accompanying 2.5-acre festival area is envisioned to host outdoor events and provide public parking. Jackson Demolition of Schenectady began tearing down the back wall of the saloon building after removing hazardous materials last week. Demolition will continue and is expected to be substantially complete this week. The structure sits on West Brook Environmental Park’s south parcel which will host wetlands with plants whose roots absorb and purify pollutants and waterways that are engineered to settle out sediments. The park will also include a variety of outdoor recreation, education and interpretation programs, according to Walt Lender of the Lake George Association. “We are excited and relieved that this first tangible phase of the project is now underway,” he said. “ Seeing these longabandoned buildings stand aside to make room for a project that will protect Lake George forever is a true sign of progress such that we have not seen before now.” Lender added he is hopeful the demolition will rally public support for the park project. “This is the most important lake protection project underway in the basin,” he said. “It is also one that brings with it the hope that we can truly restore an important wetland that was filled in generations ago, before we knew how critical wetlands are to the health of Lake George.” He added that future generations will be thankful for the “bold steps” that environmentalists took at this point in history to protect the lake.

On Dec. 13, a backhoe claws into the Charley’s Saloon building on the former Gaslight Village amusement park property where environmentalists and government entities are now jointly creating an environmental park that is expected to curb stormwater pollution. Peter Bauer of the Fund for Lake George said the wetlands restoration will correct the biggest single source of pollution to the lake while creating a park that will serve future generations well. “As the walls of Charley’s Saloon come tumbling down, we see through the rubble an exciting future for Lake George and its surrounding communities,” Bauer said, noting the project was a vital investment in the lake, the area’s most important environmental and economic resource. Lake George Mayor Robert Blais said he was pleased to see the restoration project begin. “After all the years of planning and deliberation, our goals are finally being realized,” Blais said. “We’re going to have a beautiful open space gateway to our community while we help to protect Lake George.” Fred Monroe, chairman of the Warren County Board of Supervisors, also said he was pleased to see the project under-

way, considering the lengthy process of negotiations over land use between various entities involved in the effort. Lighting fixtures, drainage pipes, and other items on the south parcel are to be removed along with the Saloon building. One small structure will also be removed on the north parcel in this phase of the project. Ground-breaking on the rough-grading of the site is expected to begin in January.

Retired pastor and wife lauded for dedicated service By Caroline Fuller Special to Adirondack Journal WARRENSBURG — It seemed like old times at Warrensburg Free Methodist Church on the morning of Dec. 5. Recently retired Pastor Richard Leonard was in the church narthex greeting people, hugging, and smiling. His wife Ruth was at the organ waiting to play a prelude accompanied with two flautists, Sheila Mender and Diane Duell — plus Pearl Taylor at the piano. I felt this must be a few weeks earlier, not today! Song Leader John Kindred led the service, until it was time for the morning’s guest speaker, Rev. Randy Phillips of Oneida, NY — Richard and Ruth’s son-in-law. Phillips conveyed anecdotes and thoughts about the Leonards and their remarkable character. Phillips offered a prayer thanking God, for the service of the Leonards and the foundation the Leonards built for the church through their years of leadership in Warrensburg. Following the service, Cliff Gates presented a plaque to the Leonards on behalf of the congregation, expressing thanks for their dedication, and the love and caring spirit towards the mission and members of the Warrensburg Free Methodist Church. In doing so, Phillips quoted First Corinthians: ”Faith, Hope and Love, and the greatest of these is love.” Richard and Ruth Leonard were also given a card containing donations collected from the church family. Also, it was announced that an engraved stone memorial will be created and set on the church lawn in recognition of the Leonards’ years of service and dedication. Richard Leonard then called retired Associate Pastor Tom Bogoshian to come forward. Bogoshian, loved also by the congregation, said: “We have a loving church — Continue to manifest this love, and we can thank the Lord for the leadership in this church instilling its growth in many ways.” Richard Leonard, known to be quick with

his wit, offered a comment with a grin. “I told him what to say,” he said. Then with a serious expression, he added, “This is a bittersweet moment for Ruth and me — we feel for you, pray for you.” He promised to return occasionally and preach. Then he pulled out a card and read its contents. “Old soldiers never die, they just fade away; old lawyers never die, they just lie; old preachers never die, they just run out of steam.” Dinner prepared by parishioners followed in the church’s Fellowship Hall, and a good time was enjoyed by those attending, about 120 people. We’ll always be thankful that the Leonards for being such a vital part of the Warrensburg Free Methodist Church.


Warrensburg Town Court report Dec. 1 — Judge Mindy Fisk presiding

Falsehood on job application at HHHN prompts arrest • The case of Melissa DiPasquale, 33, Main Street, Warrensburg was adjourned to Dec. 15. She is charged with fourth-degree grand larceny, a felony, and third-degree forgery, a misdemeanor, based on 2005 incidents. Police said DiPasquale stole $1,086 in unemployment benefits from the state of New York. According to a decision reached after her Nov. 29 arraignment by Lake Luzerne Justice Bruce Hayes, the risk of her flight is high, as she has a history of travel throughout the continental U.S. She was sent to Warren County jail for lack of $25,000 cash bail. Police said DiPasquale filled out a job application at the Hudson Headwaters Health Center and failed to disclose her criminal history. They said she signed the application, knowing it was false, due to her being a convict and being on probation. • The case of Carrie L. Rabideau, 38, Sewell Street, Lake George, was adjourned to Dec. 15. She is charged with unlawfully dealing with a child, a misdemeanor. Police said at 2:19 p.m. Nov. 20, Rabideau, a clerk at Cumberland Farms in Warrensburg, sold a 24-ounce can of Labatt Blue to a 19-yearold teenager without asking for identification. • The case of Meredith Sonley, 28, was adjourned to Dec. 15. She is charged with seconddegree harassment, based on an Oct. 22 incident. Police said at 3:05 p.m. that day on James Street, Sonley intentionally closed Keith Sonley’s left arm in her vehicle door.

• The case of Mario Cloutier, St.-Hubert, Quebec, was adjourned to Jan. 12. He is charged with third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, a misdemeanor, based on an Oct. 30 traffic stop in which he was recorded driving his Cadillac at 85 miles per hour in a 65 m.p.h. zone. • Brian T. MacDuff, 31, was arraigned on charges of firstdegree burglary, second-degree strangulation, and thirddegree assault, all felonies.Police said at about 11:30 p.m. Nov. 27, MacDuff entered in the bedroom of a female and strangled her, causing a laceration to her lip and bruises and swelling to the woman’s neck. He is also charged with thirddegree assault in the incident. He is also charged with fourth -degree criminal mischief related to another aspect of the case. Police said he took a cell phone out of the victim’s hand after she told him that she was going to call the police. MacDuff was sent to Warren County jail for lack of $50,000 cash bail. A full order of protection was issued in an effort to protect the victim. • Mariah L Balk, 20, 131 River St., Warrensburg, pleaded guilty to fourth degree criminal mischief in satisfaction of all charges against her. She had been charged with second-degree burglary, a felony, and several misdemeanors based on an incident from Oct. 15. Police said she unlawfully entered a River Street residence and took items belonging to a female including clothing, footwear, two iPods and a camera. Police said the victim saw

Mariah Balk brag on a Web site that she had stolen her property, that she would burn it, and there was nothing the victim could do about it. Balk was also charged with criminal mischief for cutting the victim’s $60 black stiletto boots into pieces, according to police. Balk was also charged with petit larceny and second-degree aggravated harassment — the latter for telling the victim to go kill herself, and if she didn’t commit suicide, Balk would kill her, or “make her disappear,” according to police. Having spent time in Warren County jail for lack of bail, Balk was sentenced to 30 days in Warren County jail minus the time she’d already served awaiting her court appearance. Also, she was ordered to pay a $205 surcharge. An order of protection was issued to shield the victim from contact with Balk. • Barry Johnson, State Route 8, Brant Lake, pleaded guilty to parking on pavement in satisfaction of a misdemeanor charge of third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation based on a Nov. 18 incident. He was sentenced to a $50 fine. • Landlord Glenda Duell was granted a judgement of $1,100 against Rebeccah Bradway, 2 Stacey St., based on nonpayment of two months rent. Eviction was also approved. • The cases of Delila Fish, Bridget Giernacky, Wayne Kennedy Jr., Wayne Kennedy Sr., John Peluso, and Tyrone Tako were adjourned to Dec. 15. The case of Burton Karson was adjourned to Jan. 12.

Town Board closes landfill on Mondays to save tax dollars In an effort to reduce local government expenses and contain taxes, the Warrensburg Town Board voted Dec. 9 to close the landfill on Mondays. Monday was chosen as the one day per week to close the town dump because it is the day with the least visitors, board members said. The new schedule will start Jan. 1 on a trial basis, Town Clerk Donna Combs said Tuesday.

Commercial water meters to be installed Water meters are to be installed in January for commercial enterprises. Any business in the Warrensburg hamlet that uses town water and does not have a water meter is urged to call Town Clerk Donna Combs at 623-4561. The town is in the process of converting to water meters so people and enterprises will pay for the water they use, rather than an arbitrary rate. Beginning at some point in 2011, billing for water will convert to a gallonage rate, beginning with commercial installations. Details of the local water ordinance are to be hammered out in January and February, town officials have said.

annual advertising costs and $1,653 towards conducting the Worlds Largest Garage Sale, which annually brings 50,000 to 100,000 visitors into Warren County. The Chamber also was granted a stipend of $12,000 Friday from county bed tax funds to promote the 2011 event. The Chamber had asked for $20,000 to promote the sale, but funds were limited — the county had applications for more than $800,000 but the county supervisors doled out $294,500, about the money they have budgeted to receive from the tax. The Warrensburg Town Board also decided to grant $144 of its share of the bed tax receipts to the Warrensburg Historical Society for advertising costs, and $3,160 to Warrensburgh Beautification for its ongoing efforts: $1,580 for various beautification and landscaping expenses, $730 towards summertime farmers’ market costs and $850 towards Christmas in Warrensburgh expenses.

Sewer district formally extended The Town Board voted unanimously Dec. 9 to extend the Warrensburg Sewer District to include Third and Fourth Avenues, Thomson St. and Library Avenue Extension. after a public hearing was held on the proposition. Town Supervisor Kevin Geraghty said pipes are already installed along Thompson Street, Sanford to Elm Street and up Raymond Lane. Residents along these streets will see sewer taxes now listed on their tax bills in February related to these district extensions. The board’s vote Dec. 9 to approve the extensions is subject to a permissive referendum, which allows anyone challenging the vote to circulate petitions against the action and submit them within 30 days to force a public vote.

Citizen sought for county Planning Board Geraghty announced that a vacancy now exists for a local representative on the Warren County Planning Board. Anyone interested in serving as the Town of Warrensburg's voice on the planning board should contact Geraghty at 623-9511.

Bicycling group seeks local representation A county-wide committee, advocating to develop bicycling trails and biking events, is seeking a representative from Warrensburg, Town Supervisor Geraghty announced at the Dec. 9 meeting. The group has met twice since its formation, and its goals include extending bicycle paths, particularly in the northern area of the county — an initiative Geraghty said he supports. Lloyd Mott of Queensbury is chairing this regional committee. Those who have ideas on extending or enhancing the bicycle paths or launching bike events in Warren County are urged to attend the group’s meetings or contact Mott at 796-2397. Those seeking to serve on the committee as Warrensburg’s representative, call Geraghty at 623-9511.

•100 Years Ago – December, 1910• Shattered glass, fear and broken bones Hudson Valley passenger car No. 52, which left Troy at 9:35 o’clock the night of Dec. 16, 1910, was telescoped in a collision with two freight cars at 11:15 near Thomson, not far from Schuylerville. Seven out of twelve passengers were injured. All three cars were destroyed by fire which started from the wood stove in the passenger car. Motorman William Birch had time only to shut off his power. He was unable to reverse and shouting a warning to the passengers who jumped from the passenger car. Except for the shock, he escaped injury but is suffering from nervous prostration. The impact, when the freight cars crashed into the passenger coach, was tremendous and the passengers were thrown from their seats and cut with flying glass. Limbs were broken. Glens Falls resident George Goodson suffered a broken arm and was taken to his home where he languished in considerable pain. (Note: James Nichols of Thomson sustained a broken arm and he later received $300 from the Hudson Valley Co.. Daniel Saivey sustained a broken leg and almost lost an ear. He was given $600, a large sum in those bygone days.)

tance was required. (Note: Lyman Stark mined for gold in the area directly across the street from the entrance road of today’s Warrensburg landfill. Stark lived in a shack there.)

Prominent citizen passes on William Aubrey, 60, died Dec. 8, 1910 of Bright’s Disease — a kidney ailment — at his home in Warrensburgh. He had been in poor health for some time and his illness was aggravated by injuries received last spring in an automobile accident when Hall’s machine in which he was a passenger, ran into a deer on the Long Lake-Newcomb road, overturned throwing the passengers out, caught fire and was destroyed. Aubrey moved to this place from Pottersville where he was a stone mason and a member of Glendale Lodge, F. and A.M. He is survived by seven children, Jennie, Ethel, Maud, William and Warren Aubrey as well as Mrs. Mabel McGovern and Mrs. Mary Bissell of Newcomb. Aubrey’s remains were escorted to a chartered Hudson Valley trolley car by members of the Warrensburgh Lodge F. and A.M. for a trip to his brother, Fred Aubrey’s house in Fort Edward where the funeral was conducted.

Widow proclaims warning to trespassers Nighttime drowning deemed a suicide Miss Fannie Bidwell, 62, of Glens Falls and formerly of Warrensburgh, committed suicide the night of Dec. 27, 1910 by drowning herself in water two feet deep in Brayton Pond near the home of her sister, Jane A. Turner with whom she lived. Her body was found by men cutting ice the next morning. Miss Bidwell was not considered to be in the best mental condition while she was living in Warrensburgh and her friends pronounced her “queer.” She was the sister of Mrs. Samuel Harrington of Warrensburgh.

Escorted out of town Jacob F. McConn, a roving individual who has been loitering in Warrensburgh for some time, was finally arrested by Constable Ovitt on Saturday, Dec. 17, 1910 on the charge of being a state tramp. He was taken before Judge Hodgson and sentenced to four months imprisonment in the Albany penitentiary. McConn claimed a residence at Spar, Florida and said he owned a large farm there and had $6,000 in cash. Unfortunately he didn’t have any of it with him. He has quartered himself with Lyman Stark for several days and when Stark invited him to leave he declined and Officer Ovitt’s assis-

Mary L. Russell, whose husband, John Luce Russell died April 8, 1909, has recently put an ad in the local newspaper concerning her summer home, Bonnie Brae Villa in Warrensburgh. She lives in Troy. The ad says, “To whom it may concern; All persons are hereby forbidden to trespass upon my property in the village of Warrensburgh under penalty of law. Persons so offending will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.” Orson R. Wilsey has bought all of the timber on Mrs. Russell’s mountain lot of 125 acres and will lumber it this winter. Expert woodsmen figure that he will clean up a net profit of $2,000 on the deal. He has temporarily abandoned his meat business this fall. (Note: Bonnie Brae Villa was at the foot of the mountain, just south of Quintal’s new present day meat store on Raymond Lane. It burned in 1980 under suspicious circumstances. Mrs. Russell’s timber was located on Hackensack Mountain.)

Marriages, near and far A quiet wedding took place Nov. 10, 1910 in Glens Falls when Miss Claribel McIntosh, daughter of George Tait, was united in marriage with William E. Burdett, Editor of the Glens Falls Times.

SATURDAY December 18, 2010

Miss Pearl Orton of Warrensburgh and Herbert Reynolds of St. Louis, Missouri, formerly of Warrensburgh, were married on Nov.14, 1910 in Chicago. They will reside in St. Louis. Miss May Mulligan, the daughter of John Mulligan of Bolton Landing, was married in Lake George to A.H. Thomas, a prosperous chemist from New York City. The bride wore a traveling costume of Wistaria broadcloth with a picture hat to march when they left for Norfolk, Virginia on their honeymoon where they will sojourn for a week. James T. Mills and Miss Pauline Skiff, both of Pottersville, were married Dec. 1, 1910 by the Rev. Mr. Brooks, pastor of the Methodist Episcopal Church.

News roundabout The churches of Warrensburgh are making plans for the annual Christmas observance and entertaining programs with gaily decorated Christmas trees will take place throughout the village. Local stores are all in their best holiday attire. The Schroon River froze over for the season Dec. 5, 1910. At Millis Market, River Street, Warrensburgh, stew beef is 5 cents, prime ribs are 12 cents and pork chops are 18 cents a pound. Kettle-rendered lard is made at the store and telephone orders are promptly delivered to any part of the village by horse and wagon. At B.B. Fowler & Co., Glens Falls, men’s heavy union suits of wool and cotton are on sale this week at $1.50, and women’s union suits, fleece lined, are 50 cents to a dollar. There is also a special sale on alcohol flagons in several sizes along with many other bountiful bargains. (Mr. Fowler is buried in Chestertown. He started his popular department store in 1869.) There are special Red Cross stamps for sale at the post office this month as the state charities procure the sinews of war for their fight against tuberculosis in the state. Lewis Putnam of North Caldwell lost a fine three-year-old colt valued at $175. He had driven the animal to the village and upon returning, put it in the barn and fed it. Twenty minutes later he heard the animal making considerable noise and found it struggling in agony on the floor. Death ensued quickly and the cause is a mystery. Margaret, widow of the late Asahel Hitchcock, died at age 86 years at the home of her son, Eben J. Hitchcock in Bakers Mills where she had been living for over a year. She was buried in the family plot at Bakers Mills. Readers are welcome to contact Adirondack Journal correspondent Jean Hadden at or 623-2210

Christmas spirit is alive in town To show our readers the Golden Rule is still being practiced locally we’ll share details about a local man who went out of his was to please a youngster. Nolan Templeton, 3, got tired at the Thurman Children’s Christmas Party Dec. 4 and was taken home by his parents Andy and Kathy. Meanwhile at the party, names were drawn for prizes. The Templetons were delighted and surprised when Bob Hitchcock came to their home on Dippikill Road to bring a gaily-dressed teddy bear and a movie for Nolan, as he was the winner of the drawing. The Templetons thank Bob and Becky Hitchcock for going out of their way to keep the Christmas spirit alive and for bringing such delight to a young child.

Youth enjoy town holiday celebration The children of Thurman received a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus Dec. 4 at the annual town Christmas party conducted by the Thurman Youth Commissions. A large crowd of local children and their family members enjoyed the crafts, raffles, treats and special gifts from Santa and his better half. Families particularly enjoyed the tree decorating and caroling that followed the party. Representatives of the youth commission express their thanks to all who helped with the party and those and donated the treats, refreshments and various materials.

Thurman officials snub their own ambulance squad By Thom Randall THURMAN — The town government has decided to drop its traditional contract with the local emergency squad and sign a deal with an agency located out of town. Emerging from behind closed doors at a special meeting Dec. 8, the Thurman Town Board announced that they’d decided to enter into a contract with the Warrensburg Emergency Medical Services for 2011 rather than the local agency. The decision concludes a year of controversy for the Thurman Emergency Medical Services, which had been holding onto surplus funds, yet submitting hiked budget requests to the town — meanwhile losing their Advanced Life Support certification. The group was seeking reinstatement of ALS capability in the last several months by proposing to boost its depleted personnel roster with paid staffing — an idea unpopular with town residents. Townspeople and the board had balked at the resulting proposed

Railroad From page 1 stretch of track that extends as far north as Tahawus. “We heard that it was available and we have a previous relationship with NL Industries, so I inquired and they offered it to us and we let Warren County know,” he said. Ellis said the company is interested in preserving the North Creek-Newcomb stretch for both freight opportunities and scenic excursions. The extension would allow Iowa Pacific to run its freight trains to the doorstep of Barton Mines in North River. The northern line has been unused for 20 years and is currently owned by a subsidiary of NL Industries — Kronos Worldwide. Iowa Pacific has already confirmed Kronos would sell the line and is currently negotiating a price. The rail line is currently leased by the Essex County Industrial Development Authority and off the tax rolls. IDA executive co-director Jody Olcott said she is currently unaware of any deal in the

contract price increases, and were concerned about the uncertainty of whether ALS would be available, Thurman Supervisor Evelyn Wood said after the meeting. “Our board had asked our local EMS to provide ALS service as it had in the past, and the EMS officials said they didn’t feel they could guarantee this,” she said. “It’s the feeling of the town board that we have to safeguard the interests of our citizens and look out for their safety.” She said the board had budgeted $50,000 for EMS services for 2011, and would have contracted with the local squad if they had guaranteed ALS at that price. “There were way too many uncertainties, if’s and maybe’s,” she said. Representatives of the Thurman agency said this week the future of their squad, its headquarters on High St., and its vehicles and equipment is now uncertain. After the announcement of the change in agencies was announced at the meeting Dec. 8, no one from the public spoke, which works. Warren County Board of Supervisors Chairman Fred Monroe said Iowa Pacific’s proposal — which includes commuter service to and from Corinth and Saratoga Springs plus connector service to the Capital Region, Manhattan and Vermont — is very attractive. The Warren County board just recently cut ties with its former sightseeing train operator, the Upper Hudson River Railroad. Ellis said he has been in contact with Barton Mines and the discussions about freight service have begun. “I can’t really say that we have a firm plan for it other than we believe it ought to be preserved. We have spoken with Barton Mine,” he said. “If we were going to load product, they would want to load it at their facility in North Creek, which is adjacent to the line.” Barton Mines spokesman Jim McAndrews confirmed talks between the two companies are under way. But he cautioned nothing concrete has been hammered out. Adirondack Journal’s Thom Randall contributed to this report.

ADIRONDACK JOURNAL - 9 surprised many because the issue of the contract with the squad had in the past prompted plenty of controversy. The squad has been under a cloud of controversy for about a year — including the revelation that the agency had a surplus of $46,000 but was seeking a hike in annual payments from the town, although the group responded to less than 15 percent of its calls during the first three months of 2010.

Cuomo From page 1 organization hopes it will help direct his agenda as it relates to the park. Her organization advocates for property rights and lends support to lawsuits challenging land-use regulations. “Obviously, from the tone of my op-ed, myself and others are hoping that Governor-elect Cuomo will take a very close look at what is happening in the Adirondacks,” Moreau said. Titled “Adirondack Blues,” the op-ed reiterates the claim the APA is under direct control of green groups and has instituted a “de facto ban” on development in the park. And she hopes the public campaign will get the governor-elect’s ear. “I do believe Cuomo is a serious and hard-working person and I have to assume he is paying very close attention to what is happening in the Adirondacks,” she said. “The Adirondacks are somewhat a reflection of a good portion of upstate New York — Although the Adirondacks — in comparison — frankly, is on life support.” She said she thinks change is needed within the regulatory agencies, particularly the APA. “New leadership is needed. The person has to be someone who cares about the individual who is standing before them, and frankly, gives as much deference to them as they would any environmental organization,” she said. “I know I’m not alone in my opinion that a number of environmental organizations have exerted a great degree of influence over the agency.” But Moreau’s assertions in the New York City media have come under some local scrutiny. On a North Country Public Radio news blog, Adirondack Bureau Chief Brian Mann blasts Moreau. “The silliest assertion made in Moreau’s commentary is that first one, the claim that development has been banned in the Park,” Mann writes. “Over the last decade, in-Park communities have seen a massive influx of private capital, investment and development to the tune of billions of dollars.” “Essays like this one, which are full of flat-out factual errors, unsupportable claims, and deceptive omissions don’t help the case for responsible reform,” Mann writes. Regional officials, like Hamilton County Board of Supervisors chairman Bill Farber, have also pitched ideas to grab Cuomo’s attention. Farber ’s concept would have local governments and green groups team up in a unified effort and lobby Albany for Adirondack

economic reform. Green groups are also scrambling to sway Cuomo’s opinions of Adirondack policy. Brian Houseal, executive director of the Adirondack Council, said his group was preparing letters to the Cuomo transition team. “Our big objectives are to reform governance and policies for the park so there is environmental protection, but also economic development,” he said. “And we need policies that will make government more cost-efficient.” For his part, Cuomo has pledged to slash the size of state government and continue Governor David A. Paterson’s review of state regulatory bodies. Cuomo’s transition team includes several members of the environmental community and state Senator Elizabeth O’C Little, R-Queensbury, a vocal APA critic.


Kane to conduct writing workshop WARRENSBURG — Jessica Kane of Brant Lake — author, playwright, artist spoken-word performer, and singer — will be conducting a writing workshop in January. The goal of the workshop is to complete a short essay or a short story, and then record it as an audio piece, Kane noted this week. The writing workshop will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on three consecutive Saturdays: Jan. 15, 22, and 29 at Willows Bistro in Warrensburg. The class sessions break for lunch from noon to 1 p.m. After these three sessions, once everyone's pieces are complete, we will arrange the recording sessions on a one-by-one basis.The fee for this course is $200, which includes the recording session. Class is limited to six participants. RSVP by December 15 at: or 4947018. Kane’s off-kilter humor is threaded through her work, whether it’s her nouveau-country singing, her idiosyncratic narratives and poetry, or her eccentric sculptures. Reviewers have praised her writing, noting that her keen observation transforms the mundane world into a compelling new light. Kane has been published in Prevention Magazine, Carbon 14 and El Petit Journal. In 2008, she wrote a series of weekly personality profiles for the Adirondack Journal.

Santa From page 1 children and their parents waiting with keen anticipation. Meanwhile, Wayne Williams and Scott and Ruth Joseph of Faith Bible Church, sang Christmas carols with their acoustic guitars accompanying the traditional melodies. Tammie LaGuerre stood halfway down the hallway, knowing it might by 45 minutes or so after Santa’s arrival that her children Makayla, 6, and Kiana, 5,would get a few minutes with him. “We’ve been coming here since my children were babies — they really look forward to it,” she said. Kelly Robbins, with her twins Tanner and Peyton, 6, was standing near the end of the line. She said it was worth the wait to see Santa, but they might be going upstairs in the meantime for cookie decorating in the town library, or take a hayride in a horse drawn wagon while the 100-orso other children shared their Christmas wishes with Santa. “We’ll be doing lots of things here, including joining in with the Youth Commission’s basketball sessions,’ she said. “I have a hard time keeping up with the kids.” First to place her children in Santa’s lap in Chestertown for 2010 was Brittany Bolton of Valentine Pond Road. After her children Jacob, Reagan Harley and Riley revealed their Christmas wishes to Santa and Mrs. Claus, Brittany Bolton gazed at the festive duo. “This has been a wonderful family tradition,” she said. “They’ll remember this their whole lifetime.”

Fear of the Forest A

lthough a majority of current day civilization has learned to appreciate the benefits of nature and the natural world, it wasn’t always the case. From the earliest of times, societies have sought protection from the dangers of the natural world through the telling of tales and legends that were intended to ingrain children with a basic fear of the woods. From Goldie Locks to Little Red Riding Hood to Sleepy Hollow’s Headless Horseman and continuing through such movies as Deliverance, the Blair Witch Project and The Village, mankind has conditioned children to fear the woods throughout the centuries. Admittedly, the woods can be a mysterious and foreboding place and at times, it is only natural to fear what we hear but can’t see, especially at night. However, our greatest fears are the noises that come from creatures unknown. Often, these are the creatures that rest comfortably in our collective imagination. In our mind’s eye, the forest conceals a host of wild animals, witches, demons, and a host of serial killers that lurk in the darkness, awaiting the innocent. This process plays on fears that already exist in most of us, it is also known as the boogieman complex. Increasingly, American parents have grown afraid of letting their children to play in the yard, bicycle to school or hike in the woods, even though such irrational fears are not supported by the evidence or statistics. For many, the woods are a wild place that is unbound by man-made rules or codes. Sadly, many people live in fear of these wild and untamed elements. The forest can conceal a variety of threats, both actual and imagined. Although it is a place where a man or child can become lost, never be found again, such incidents are a rarity. An unfounded fear of the forest is known as hylophobia and it affects far more people than most of us would ever expect. Nyctohylophobia is the much more common fear and foreboding of journeying in the woods at night. It is a sense that you are not alone and it is a fear that can be debilitating for some. It is an affliction that

extends far beyond the typical shivers and goose bumps that are expected after an evening of ghost stories around the campfire. It is understandable that we have a greater fear of the unknown, than of the things that are known to us. An overzealous imagination can create monsters far beyond any known to exist in the natural world, and as society continues to spiral into the depths of natural detachment; it is easy to understand the growing fear of the woods. We fear most, the things we least understand. While hylophobia is largely an unfounded fear, there are at least a few psychological afflictions with a rational basis in the Great North Woods. These maladies would have to include Agrizoophobia, a fear of wild animals and Entomophobia, a fear of insects. Anyone spending time in the Adirondacks during black fly season could easily justify becoming an Entomophobiac. Likewise, many local residents surely suffer from Chionophobia, at some point in their life. Around these parts, Chionophobia, an intense fear of snow is an understated reality, at almost anytime of the year. Time in the woods is better for the classroom Despite concerns over a growing fear of the woods, a recent study conducted for the Association of Fish & Wildlife Agencies offers ample evidence to alleviate such apprehensions. Researchers funded through a Multistate Conservation Grant of the Sport Fish and Wildlife Restoration Program, uncovered a wide range of benefits that can be attributed to spending time in the open air and learning outside.

The study suggests “a meaningful engagement with nature as a child has a direct correlation with involvement in environmental issues in the future, which should be of great interest as communities look for the next generation of environmental leaders.” Additional research reveals that “people who participate in outdoor activities tend to be happier than those who do not and that active living may lead to a healthier lifestyle, based on the Leisure Trends Index” while “spending time in the open air and learning outside has also proven to increase students’ ability to think creatively and improve problem-solving skills.” The study also found that “students who play and learn in outdoor settings perform better on tests, have higher grade point averages (GPAs), cause fewer classroom disruptions”. It also found considerable evidence that “outdoor adventure programs can impact positively on young people’s attitudes, beliefs and self-perceptions.” In general, the research indicates that among the benefits of outdoor education is an increase in self-concept domains such as independence, confidence, self-efficacy, and self-understanding. Additional benefits include “enhanced psychological well-being; an increased ability to overcome challenges; a positive impact on leadership competencies; enhanced decision-making skills, general problem solving competencies, academic achievement and academic self-concept. “

Time spent outdoors also resulted in “an increase in personality dimensions such as assertiveness, emotional stability, achievement motivation, internal focus of control, and maturity and reductions in aggression and neurosis. It was also shown to improve mental strength and interpersonal dimensions such as social competence, co-operation and interpersonal communication skills.” Regarding aspects of health, learning, and lifestyle, the study indicates that outdoor skills programs help to promote lifelong physical, emotional and spiritual well being. According to the report, “a growing body of studies suggests that contact with nature is as important to children as good nutrition and adequate sleep: time spent outdoors correlates with increased physical activity and fitness in children; exposure to green space reduces crime, increases general wellbeing and the ability to focus; children as young as five have shown a significant reduction in the symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) when they are engaged in outdoor activities in natural settings.” The positive benefits that the research reveals should offer ample evidence for students, and faculty to address professed fears of the forest.

Boys basketball

Lake George extends earlyseason run Lake George 72, Whitehall 31 WHITEHALL — Regardless of how early it may be in the 2010-11 basketball season, the word “undefeated” has a satisfying sound to it. Fans of the Lake George boys basketball team were savoring the term early this week as the 4-0 team headed into a showdown with Corinth, also undefeated at 3-0. The Warriors kept their unblemished season record continuing with a decisive victory over Whitehall Dec. 10. Matt McGowan led the charge with 26 points and teammate Alex Hladik tallied 15 in the contest. The middle two quarters were when the Warriors got into their groove, scoring 41 points to Whitehall’s seven. Contributing in the Lake George effort were Jeff Maldonado scoring three 3-pointers, Matt Stover also adding nine points, Aaron Chambers with five, Ryan Moll with four, and J.D. Jenkins and Erik Jones adding two each. Hladik and Chambers each recorded a three-pointer in the victory.

Bolton 45, Elizabethtown 16 BOLTON LANDING — The Bolton Eagles boys basketball team accomplished a scoring margin rarely seen in the region — containing their opponent Elizabethtown to a mere three points in the final two quarters, and only 16 points overall in the second half of the non-league game Dec. 13. Bolton’s aggressive defenders held Elizabethtown’s leading scorer, Hunter Mowery scoreless throughout the game. But that’s not all. Bolton’s offense was firing on all cylinders Monday as well, with four players scoring

eight points or more. Mitchell Jordon led his team with 11 points, followed by Matthew Smith with nine; Tyler Calzada and Billy Smith with eight, Dustin French with six and Tim Flynn with two. Calzada scored two 3pointers in the game.

Bolton 60, Wells 20 WELLS — Bolton’s steely defense contained Wells to a modest 20 points while their free-wheeling offense netted a solid 60 points for a decisive victory Dec. 11. Dustin French scored 11 points in the game and Billy Smith and Mitchell Jordon each contributed 10 to lead the charge for the Eagles. Caleb Kneeshaw and Tim Flynn scored seven points each and Calzada scored six, while Nathan Breault added three, and Matt Smith, Andy Smith and Carl Ciccarelli each chipped in with two. The Bolton Squad established their lead early, then intensified their advantage with a 19-1 third quarter. French, Kneeshaw and Flynn each scored a three-pointer. With the win, Bolton’s record advanced to 2-1 overall.

Hartford 51, North Warren 35 HARTFORD — The Hartford Boys basketball team combined a balanced offensive attack with stingy defense to defeat North Warren Dec. 10 in the Cougars’ first league game of the season. Phil Cassella led all players with 18 points for Hartford. Cougar senior guard/forward Bryan Beckler led the Cougars with 17 points, followed by sophomore guard Ethan Schenke with seven and eighth-grade sensation Nick Sapienza with five, and seniors Joe Aiken and Travis Monroe, and junior Benn Frasier with two apiece. Held to the outside for much of the play, Schenke and Beckler hit two 3-pointers apiece, and Sapienza hit one. Hartford’s 21-point scoring spree in the third quarter put the game out of reach for the Cougars. With the defeat, North Warren tallied 1-2 overall as of Dec. 13, and Hartford was 2-0 in the Adirondack League.

Argyle 66, Warrensburg 53 ARGYLE — Despite a 20-point fourthquarter scoring surge Dec. 10, Warrensburg couldn’t win back enough points late in a game against Argyle to prevent the Scots from winning by a score of 66 to 53. Joey Lufkin of the Scots combined 21 points, five steals and five assists to lead the Scots to the victory. Josh Horton added 16 points for Argyle, which experienced a 23point third quarter effort en route to the win. For the Burghers, an experienced senior threesome led the charge: John Joseph scored 15 points and Mike Curtis and Ryan Belden each added 13. Senior Nick Monroe contributed six and juniors Tyler Williams, Hunter Werner and Cory Chadwell each scored two. Curtis’ baskets included three 3-pointers, while Monroe and Joseph each contributed one long shot. With the loss, Warrensburg moved to 0-2 in the Adirondack League and 1-3 overall.

Lake George 79, North Warren 24 LAKE LUZERNE — Lake George’s balanced attack and depth of experienced players propelled them to a 79-24 blowout Dec. 7 over Hadley-Luzerne. Warrior Matt McGowan scored 20 points and J.D. Jenkins contributed 15 in the Adirondack League boys basketball game. Aaron Chambers contributed 12 points and Alex Hladik added 10 points in the 2010-11 league opener for both teams. Jeff Maldonado tallied seven points; Matt Stover, six; Erik Jones, five; and Ryan Moll, two, in the Warriors balanced offense. All scorers are seniors except for juniors Moll and Chambers — who proved himself as a formidable outside threat by sinking no less than four 3-pointers. Jones also hit one from outside. With the win, the Warriors remained undefeated at 3-0 overall.

CORINTH — Tough second-half defense by the Corinth boys basketball team sealed a 54-40 victory for their storied squad Dec. 7.

But it wasn’t only the Corinth defense. Kevin Tucker scored 10 of his 21 points in the second half to propel his squad to the win. Phil Giordano added 14 points and nine rebounds. Alex Robarge created some crucial turnovers with his six steals. Mike Curtis scored 15 points to lead the Burghers and Ryan Belden contributed 12. John Joseph tallied eight points, Tyler Williams scored three, and Hunter Werner accounted for two.

Girls basketball Corinth 51, Warrensburg 37 WARRENSBURG — Strong mid-game offense and a string of three-pointers by Corinth earned a victory for their girl’s basketball team over Warrensburg Dec. 13. Amy Fasulo scored 11 points to help secure Corinth’s unbeaten league record continue. Warrensburg kept the game competitive, however, containing Corinth 7-6 in the first quarter, but losing steam as the Tomahawks outscored the Burghers 33-19 during the next two stanzas. Isabella Szabo led Warrensburg with 10 points, followed by Alexa Bryant with nine, Ashlie Morehouse with eight, Katelyn Kuklinski with six, plus Savannah Mosher and Montana Sheridan with two. All are juniors except Kuklinski.

Argyle 68, Warrensburg 24 WARRENSBURG — Argyle’s productive offense overwhelmed Warrensburg in a girls basketball game Dec. 10. Jacquelyn Miller scored a game-high 29 points for the Scots, followed by Megan McWhorter and Erica Reynolds with 10 each. With the win, Argyle was 2-0 in the Adirondack League and Warrensburg was 01 in the league and 2-1 overall. Ashlie Morehouse, who scored 18 points in a game against Johnsburg a week earlier, was contained by Argyle defenders to eight points — but she still led the Burghers. Teammate Katelyn Kuklinski contributed seven points — including one 3-pointer. Alexa Bryant tallied five, and Isabella Szabo and Montana Sheridan added two points each. All are juniors except Kuklinski.

Hartford 50,

Burgher Vaisey tops all in duals tourney

North Warren 44 CHESTERTOWN — North Warren launched a furious effort to start their game as they charged out to a 13-4 lead over Hartford Dec. 10 and extended their advantage all the way through the third quarter, but the Tanagers adjusted their defense and fought back with relentless offense in the final stanza with a 22-point onslaught to win the game. Over the contest, Morgan Mercure scored a game-high 16 points and Kayla Casey hit two critical 3-pointers late in the game to seal the victory. Lindsey Meade led North Warren with 14 points. Kiera Warner added 11, Margo Broderick contributed nine, Chantal Millington tallied six, and Morgan Tennyson added four. North Warren won the junior varsity contest.

Lake George 57, Whitehall 25 LAKE GEORGE — The Lake George girls basketball team avenged a critical championship loss they incurred last year by burying rival Whitehall Dec. 10 by a convincing 57-25 score. Last year, the talented 2009-10 squad lost the Adirondack League Championship to Whitehall in a 47-43 heartbreaker, ending a six-year streak for Warriors in winning the crown. This game was a different matter. Lake George moved the ball around well and pressured the Railroaders to claim this critical victory. Kelly Flaherty’s 18 points led Lake George’s effort. Caroline Murphy tallied 11 points, Hahnah Saroff contributed eight, Amanda Chambers and Courtney Laczko each added seven and Gretchen Bechard chipped in two. Loren Martell scored nine points for Whitehall. With the win, Lake George remained unbeaten for the 2010-11 season at 2-0. The junior varsity also exacted some revenge on behalf of their elders, as they, too, won their contest.

Bolton 41, Spa Catholic 21 SARATOGA SPRINGS — The determined Bolton Eagles girls basketball team dominated play on both ends of the court and fought hard for ball control to defeat Saratoga Catholic Dec. 10

by a score of 41-21. Dominique-Jean Servelli sank 17 points and recorded eight steals in the game. Teammate Madlyn Wilson grabbed 12 rebounds, ripped off three steals, scored six points and contributed two assists; while Charlotte Caldwell tallied seven rebounds, nine points and two assists; and Tori Persons scored 9 points in this total team effort. That’s not all. Roselynn Denne sank four points, Molly Schoder scored two and Marie DeLorenzo chipped in one. With the win, Bolton improves to 25 overall. Bolton won the junior varsity contest by a score of 29-18.

Lake George 59, Hadley-Luzerne 23 LAKE GEORGE — The Warrior Girls Basketball team’s stellar conditioning paid off in a league opener Dec. 8 when they poured on points late in the game to defeat Hadley-Luzerne 59 to 23. Caroline Murphy outscored all players with 21 points accompanied by 11 rebounds to lead the charge. Teammate Brittany Baker scored 15 points, including three 3-pointers. The total team effort included Amanda Chambers tallying 11 points, Hahnah Saroff with four, and Courtney Laczko, Gretchen Bechard, Kelly Flaherty and Chelsea Sipowicz all scoring two each.

Courtney Backus scored nine points to lead the Eagles.

War-Eagle wrestlers claim third among 13 teams

GLENS FALLS — The Lake George/Hadley-Luzerne War-Eagle wrestlers took third place in the Glens Falls MatMania tournament Dec. 11 with a strong showing of their lineup against 12 other schools. The Corinth Tomahawks took home the championship trophy with a narrow margin over Niskayuna. The War-Eagles edged out host Glens Falls by 13 points to place third. Jack Clark won the tourney title at 285 pounds, while teammate Joe Plante took second at 130, and Zach Olson placed third at 135 and Jason Yard earned the same rank at 189 pounds. Placing fourth were Forest Kubricky at 112 and Daniel Jardine at 119 and Hunter Hamilton with an overtime win at 145 pounds.

DUANESBURG — Warrensburg’s wrestling sensation Jon Vaisey Warrensburg continued his stellar 2010-11 season Dec. 11 as he won the Most Outstanding Wrestler award at the Duanesburg Duals meet which included five teams. Vaisey, a powerful and explosive brawler, won the championship in his 103-pound weight class after pinning his competitors in a lightning-fast 32, 33 and 25 seconds respectively. Vaisey’s fourth matchup was a forfeit. This is Vaisey’s second tourney championship of 2010-11. The Warrensburg wrestling squad tallied 2-2 at the meet, beating Watervliet by a score of 48-32 and defeating far-larger Guilderland 39-31, but losing to Holland Patent 66-18 and host Duanesburg by a score of 55-19 in the day-long marathon of matchups.

Jimmer’s homecoming electrifies city By Keith Lobdell GLENS FALLS — It was a triumphant homecoming for Glens Falls’ very own sports superstar. Jimmer Fredette waved to the sellout crowd of 6,300 at the Glens Falls Civic Center during pre-game introductions and again when he was taken out of play with two minutes to go. Both times, the standing-room-only crowd answered with a standing ovation and a lengthy roar. Glens Falls Mayor Jack Diamond predicted the roof would blow off the building with the crowd’s reaction to Fredette. Yes, the noise and excitement the crowd generated was indeed that powerful during the game billed as Jimmer ’s Hometown Classic. The game had been created as a homecoming event for Fredette, the high-scoring senior on the undefeated Brigham Young University Cougars men’s basketball team — ranked 18th in the nation — which made the cross-country trip to play the University of Vermont Catamounts Dec. 8. During the long-awaited game, Fredette lived up to his legend. He sank his first three shots and scored BYU’s first seven points, and continued his stellar play to tally a game-high 26 points. “You do not know what to expect until it

happens,” said Fredette, who starred for Glens Falls High School before playing for BYU, smashing school records and being named a pre-season All-American. The 6’2” senior guard scored more than 2,400 points when he played for Glens Falls High.

“It was a great reception,” continued Fredette. “It didn’t hit me until I waved to the crowd and started to see all the familiar faces of people who I went to school with or played with around here. It was really nice.” Fredette perhaps received the biggest ova-

tion when he connected on a fast break, behind-the-back pass with Kyle Collinsworth in the second half. “I saw the play developing and I knew that Jackson [Emery] was on my right and the defense was pulling towards him. I had Kyle on my left and wanted to give the fans a little show. I was just hoping I made the pass because I know coach [Dave Rose] would not have been happy if I hadn’t.” While the play on the hardwoods thrilled the crowd, the Hometown Classic electrified the city of Glens Falls. Newspapers devoted special sections to the event. Fredette’s name was mentioned thousands of times in the news media in a matter of days. Even Celtics great Danny Ainge was in the crowd watching Fredette’s slinky moves. The city was packed on game day with revelers celebrating Fredette’s return to his roots. The event prompted community pride to an extent unprecedented in recent history, area officials said. People of all ages and walks of life talked about the event for days beforehand and after. Warren County Sheriff Bud York said the Hometown Classic was one of those once-ina-lifetime celebrations for thousands attending and the many others who were there in spirit. “I’ve never seen downtown Glens Falls so alive,” he said.
