QUEENSBURY — Warren County Supervisors voted Friday to approve a 2010 budget that calls for raising $36.3 million in property taxes, reflecting a 6.1 percent increase overall from 2009. This increase, however, is substantially higher for tax rates in individual towns — property owners will shoulder county tax hikes between 5 percent and 24 percent for 2010. In Warrensburg, the county tax rate will be increasing from $3.15 to $3.52 per thousand in assessed valuation, an 11.7 percent hike. In Lake George outside the village, the increase will be 19.6 percent, according to figures supplied Friday by county administrators. Inside Lake George Village, the increase is 9 percent. In Chester, the increase is 5 percent. But in Johnsburg, the increase in tax rate from 2009 to 2010 is far higher: property owners in this upcounty town opening their tax bills in late January will see an increase in county taxes of 23.5 percent. In Queensbury, the increase is 20 percent; in Bolton, 11.6 percent; in Thurman, 9.7 percent; in Glens Falls, 7 percent; in Horicon, 5 percent; in Stony Creek, 8 percent; in Hague, 11.6 percent, and in Lake Luzerne, 12.7 percent. The budget approval occurred Friday soon after the county Supervisors voted against a proposed temporary sales tax hike from 7 to 8 percent, which would have kept the increase at zero. Voting against the budget were county supervisors Fred Monroe of Chester, Kathleen Simmes of Bolton, Ralph Bentley of Horicon, Red Pitkin of Thurman, Frank Thomas of Stony Creek, Sterling Goodspeed of Johnsburg, Ralph Bentley of Horicon, Dan Belden of Hague, Gene Merlino of Lake Luzerne, and Glens Falls Supervisors Daniel Girard and Joseph Sheehan. Several of the supervisors opposing the budget said they could not support a budget that boosted the burden on property owners while leaving the county facing $8 million in additional debt in January. Many of the supervisors who voted “No” had supported a sales tax increase as a way that tourists could help reduce property taxes and build up depleted county cash reserves.

SATURDAY December 26, 2009

Group hopes to boost environmental efforts in LG LAKE GEORGE — The village government’s “Go Green” committee held their first meeting last week, and Mayor Robert Blais challenged the group to work toward the municipality becoming a model for other small communities across the state. The village’s goal, he said, will be to save energy, protect the environment and become a climate-resilient community. Blais thanked all the members for volunteering to serve and expressed appreciation to committee chairman David Harrington, the Village’s Superintendent of Public Works, for his environmentally-sensitive efforts to date. Trustee John Earl reviewed the work already accomplished by the Village, including the recent purchase of their first hybrid vehicle — another hybrid acquisition is planned for 2010. A total of 4,436 incandescent bulbs have been replaced with LEDs in the holiday lights resulting in a utility savings of 80 percent, Blais noted. The village has requested National Grid to begin replac-

Warrensburg Town Court report Dec. 16 — Justice Mindy Fisk presiding • Vincent J. Rathbun, 40, of Lake George, appeared in court on Felony charges of second-degree Attempted Assault and Aggravated Unlicensed Operation of a Motor Vehicle, as well as the misdemeanors of Driving While Intoxicated, first-degree Aggravated Unlicensed Operation, Resisting Arrest, plus a violation of fourth degree Criminal Mischief, and the infractions of Refusing a Breath Test and consuming Alcohol in a Motor Vehicle. When a patrol officer arrested him Dec. 11 for suspected Driving While Intoxicated and was driving him towards police headquarters, Rathbun kicked at the rear window, then kicked the legs of a patrol officer who stopped and exited the car and attempted to restrain him Judge Richard Nissen arraigned Rathbun Dec. 12, and set the bail at $500 cash. Fox is now free after raising bail. His case was adjourned to Jan. 13, so he can obtain the services of an attorney. Earlier this month, Rathbun was in court on another Misdemeanor charge of Driving While Intoxicated and Aggravated DWI. • John Peluso III, 28, of Warrensburg, was arraigned on a charge of Petit Larceny. He is accused of cashing a check for $794.44 belonging to The Fireplace Co.

Police said they apprehended Hahn on River St. with one hydrocodone pill, two cans of Miller beer and a bottle of Evan Williams Whiskey. • Maigan Richardson, 21, of Gansevoort pled Guilty to a charge of Facilitating Unlicensed Operation, a violation — a reduction from her original Misdemeanor charge of third-degree Aggravated Unlicensed Operation based on an arrest Oct. 10.

full tin of this salve was 25 cents and if he sold enough he could get himself a bicycle. I well recall how his little eyes lit up when he could make a sale. He was so good that when one lady told hin she’d buy one, but she didn’t have the quarter that day, his response was “That’s okay, I’ll run home and get my quarter so that you can pay for it.” Don’t you wish there were car salesman like that today?

Over the fence No doubt, Winter has arrived


erry Christmas everyone, and if we’re still buried under all this snow that fell Dec. 9 and 13, I hope Santa did find all of our readers. Thurman residents were expecting only a few inches of snow on Wednesday, but it kept snowing and we received 14 to 15 inches, before turning to a tiny bit of hail with freezing rain, making it heavy and hard to plow. On top of that, several days later it’s been very cold, as low as about 15 below zero at times.

Appreciation to those who put others first And now with 2009 about to end, we would like to get a few Thank You’s out. Thanks to the highway crews for keeping our roads in decent shape, especially in winter storms. Thank You to our girls who faithfully bring the mail rural -delivery mail every day — we all appreciate what you do. Thank You also to the man who delivers our daily newspapers and rarely misses a day. We also want to thank all the workers who seem to get to work through all kinds of weather to keep stores and offices open. And a big special thanks to all of our compassionate and caring people who give so much of their time doing volunteer work — and to good neighbors who look out for each other, and for all who think of others who may need help, then try to act on it. Thanks to you all and may the new year of 2010 be an exceptionally good one for you and all your family members!

Good Samaritans prevail in the mountains Many families were indeed surprised and happy when they received a Christmas turkey. We want to thank the unknown donor who anonymously gave 40 turkeys to townfolks. Also many called and wanted a big thank you in to the folks who made up the lovely Christmas baskets. The baskets were delivered on Dec. 11 and were full of goodies and very nicely decorated — Thank you all.

Generous door-to-door salesman recalled Back in the 1940s our family had a little boy living next door, about age 5, and he was going around the few homes situated in the area trying to sell Cloverine salve. Each

The town assessors have some advice to assure you get the benefits and tax breaks you deserve. Folks should hold onto their income statement from Social Security, which may have already arrived in the mail. Seniors are advised to bring it and other proof of income into the town hall for a consultation over qualifying for enhanced STAR benefits, which provides relief from school property taxes. For the enhanced STAR rebates, growth in IRA accounts doesn’t count except for the interest paid, according to Assessor Susan Baker, who has been praised for her help to seniors to maximize tax savings for townspeople. For details, call 623-4593. Shovel out your mailboxes for your mail delivery; and if you expect a delivery of fuel or propane shovel a small path. As you do this remember the Golden Rule. However, U.S. postal service policy calls for all mailboxes to be shoveled out to assure delivery. There is an open benefit account for the Don Vopleus family set up at TD Bank, any location. As of mid-December he is still a patient at Albany Medical Center. Don had a tree fall on him and was very seriously injured. As of mid-December, there are still phone line problems at the town hall. Those of you calling, don’t give up, just keep trying to get through, town officials have said.

Thurman events and activities The Thurman Baptist Church will have special service to welcome in the new year on Dec. 31 starting at 6 p.m. until about 10 p.m. There will be refreshments for all. The senior bus will run on Monday Dec. 28, a few days later than normal because of the Christmas holiday. Anyone age 60 or over is welcome to this free service of a trip to Glens Falls for shopping or appointments. Call Laura by Saturday at 623-9281 to reserve a seat.

Haskell appeal rejected, felony conviction upheld THURMAN — Former Thurman Supervisor John Haskell has lost an appeal challenging his December 2008 felony conviction of Defrauding the Government in connection with a land deal he engineered in 2008. In a decision handed down Dec. 17, a panel of judges serving in the Appellate Division of state Supreme Court rejected Haskell’s contention that there was not sufficient evidence to convict him of the charge. The court upheld the Warren County Supreme Court’s decision a year ago reflecting that Haskell bought a landlocked parcel of property and then improperly convinced the Thurman Town Board to convey him right-of-way access across adjacent town-owned land. The judges decided that the prosecutors presented “ample evidence” to the jury showing that Haskell engaged in a “systematic ongoing course of conduct with the intent to obtain a right-of-way from the town by fraudulent pretenses or representations.” The judges declared that the prosecutor in the 2008 trial provided plenty of evidence for the jury to make its conclusions, including that Haskell “improperly procured a rightof-way over Town property for another member of the pub-

lic.” The decision also cites the evidence of the private unrecorded meeting Haskell held with members of the Town Board in which he discussed his plans to request a right-ofway over Town property, followed by his “false and misleading statements at the public Town Board meeting,” the appeals decision reads. The evidence also included Haskell’s “uncommon procedure for requesting a right-of-way, his request to change the minutes of the Town Board meeting, and his filing of a deed with the Warren County Clerk that was not in conformity with what the Town Board had approved,” the appellate panel’s decision read. The court noted that the evidence provided to the jury included Haskell’s testimony that he insisted that the sale of the property close by the end of the year, inferring, the decision reads, that Haskell wanted to ensure that he obtained the right-of-way prior to the January 2006 installation of new Town Board members, at least one of whom was a political adversary. The judges also determined that the value of the fraudulent actions, or the value of the right of way, was in excess of $1,000, considering that the land was initially worth $27,500, but sold to Haskell for $20,000 when the right-ofway problem surfaced. Also, the former owner ’s title insur-

ance company paid him $7,000 in compensation for not actually having the right-of-way. Haskell, a six-term supervisor and a Republican, was automatically barred from office after the felony conviction. He was succeeded by Lawrence “Red” Pitkin, a political independent who is a log home builder that formerly served on the local school board. Haskell was sentenced about a year ago to two months in Warren County Jail, five years on probation and $2,500 in fines. Haskell spent four days behind bars in January before the sentence was stayed for his appeal. It was unclear Thursday when Haskell might begin serving his time behind bars.

•100 Years Ago – December, 1909• Downtown is dressed for the holidays


he Christmas windows of Warrensburgh’s stores have never looked handsomer. The holiday business at the post-office is on in earnest. The sundog on Dec. 11, 1909, was a rare spectacle, as unsubstantial as a rainbow. Beginning with slight flurries and increasing as the day wore on, the storm on Monday, Dec. 13, 1909 was one of the old fashioned kind, welcomed by the merchants. Eighteen inches of snow fell. Severe storms are, however, promised for the yuletide holidays. Fred Harrington, the ice man, has begun harvesting ice 12 inches thick from Bond’s Pond (Echo Lake.) Preparations are being made for the usual winter horseracing on the ice which has been delayed by the lateness of the cold weather this year.

Baker distributes gifts Robert Baker, following the custom of many merchants, is presenting calendars to his customers. Baker is an enthusiastic amateur photographer and has prepared his own pictures of Warrensburgh for every month of the year. (Note…what a wonderful collector ’s item! Does anyone have one of these calendars in their attic? Call me!)

Sailor reminisces Captain Richmond Pearson Hobson, 38, a forceful speaker late of the United States Navy, the famous hero of the Spanish-American War and the one who bottled up the Spanish fleet by the sinking of the Merrimac in the harbor of Santiago, Cuba, will speak on Dec. 3, 1909 at the Presbyterian Church in Glens Falls. Adults, 50 cents, children, twenty-five cents. (Note…this war, fought in 1898, brought about the United States’ acquisition of Puerto Rico and the Philippines. Marcus Denison Russell, 32, of Warrensburgh, a soldier in Teddy Roosevelt’s Rough Riders, was the second man to die, June 24, 1898, in the Spanish American War. He is buried in the Warrensburgh Cemetery.)

Hot bricks drop on victims One of the worst fires that Sandy Hill (Hudson Falls) has experienced destroyed the Delaware and Hudson freight depot, Dec. 17, 1909 and during the blaze 12 firemen and spectators were injured by the unexpected toppling of the walls and the dropping of the roof which extended over the platform. The hot bricks caused great suffering to those who were pinned beneath the debris. The building will be replaced.

Warren County justice James Roberts of Warrensburgh, was arrested by Deputy Sheriff Stone for non-support of his family. He was given a suspended sentence for six months after being reprimand-

Axe co. waste, greed and nepotism To the editor: I am pleased the proposal to raise Warren County’s sales tax rate from 7 to 8 percent has been rescinded. Warren County elected supervisors got greedy and taxpayers are paying for it along with current and former county employees.

ed by the judge. Jerome Jenkins of Warrensburgh, the horseman, was arrested by Deputy Sheriff Stone for public intoxication and was sentenced to four months in the county jail. Mac Smith of Warrensburgh, son of Sheriff-elect Thomas J. Smith, has been appointed undersheriff and jailer in Lake George at a salary of $600 per year.

Landowners oppose Chester right-of-way County Judge Jenkins will hold a special term of court in the surrogate’s chambers of the Colvin building, Glens Falls on Dec. 16, 1909, to hear an application by the Board of Supervisors for a right-of-way for the construction of the North Creek-County Line Road, No. 736. The property is located in the Town of Chester and is owned by Cornelius Collins, Robert Bibbey and Myron Fletcher, all of whom strongly oppose the application.

The Burhans Lodge, in Warrensburgh at the Elm St. entrance to the estate, occupied by Mrs. Charles F. Burhans’ mother, Mrs. Jennie Somerville, is undergoing extensive repairs and improvements to the interior, including new plumbing, paint and paper. (Note: this pink stucco house on Pine Tree Lane is, I am told, now owned by Casey Potter. Charles Burhans also owned the property where the Warrensburgh Fire Co. building is today. The Burhans’ estate, built of local stone, has been gone since the early 1960’s.)

Newspaper columnist dead David M. Dunlap, 77 one of the best-known residents of Warren County and father of Loran R. Dunlap, clerk of the Board of Supervisors, died at 8 o’clock a.m. Dec. 4, 1909 at his home in Stony Creek. Death resulted from a recent shock of paralysis. He was born in Crown Point, June 22, 1832 and at the close of the Civil War went to Stony Creek where he engaged in the farming and lumbering business and later in the mercantile business. For 25 years he was a contributor to the Warrensburgh News columns and took pride in chronicling happenings of interest in his town. His widow is the former Ruth Murray and besides their son Loran, they had two daughters. David Dunlap was buried in the Warrensburgh Cemetery. (Note: Dunlap was proprietor of the old Stony Creek Inn from 1877 to 1879. Dunlap’s store, post office and DunlapRiddell telephone exchange building was on the Harrisburgh Road, Creek Center. David and Ruth’s son, Loran Raleigh Dunlap died suddenly of heart failure in Nov. 1916. Ten years later, Oct. 30, 1926 the Dunlap homestead and store building burned to the ground.)

I am sensitive to the people who are close to the edge financially, especially those with families and hope relief comes in some form for those who have been unfairly impacted the most. However, I also feel that our current leadership, including many in your primary readership area – county supervisors Monroe, Bentley, Goodspeed, Geraghty, Merlino, along with others got us into this terrible financial situation and they should bail us out. With double-digit spending increases for their own communities, it forces them to do what they have been resisting: CUT SPENDING. As you mentioned, I proposed an efficiency study be done to compare Warren County with other counties statewide. Why are our elected officials reluctant to do an efficiency study if they are interested in lowering Warren County expenses? In addition, I believe it is double dipping for our county supervisors to be paid salary stipends, health insurance, and mileage reimbursements for what is part-time work. They are already paid a salary for their full time positions in their respective communities. How many people do you know get health insurance for part time work. Also, family of elected officials should not be employed at the county and it should at least be disclosed. I hope incoming supervisors from Glens Falls, Lake George and Bolton push for an efficiency study to compare our county expenses to other counties. Businesses do benchmarking all the time. Our supervisors should do the same to lighten the load for taxpayers. We want fewer services, not more. PS – I applaud your paper for keeping editorial opinions separate from your articles. It shows you are objective and listen to all points of view.

Hattie Judd dead Miss Hattie Judd, 56, died Sunday morning, Dec. 5, 1909 of acute glomerulonephritis (nephritis or inflammation of the kidneys) after an illness of several weeks. She is survived by her brother, James Judd and the two have always lived at the old homestead in Warrensburgh and their life together is said to have been very happy. Hattie Judd was buried in the Warrensburgh Cemetery. (Note…the old Judd farmhouse on the mountain overlooking the Judd Bridge is today owned by the family of the late Warrensburg Councilman Austin Perry who ran a horse farm there. At one time it was owned by Howard Hull, the town’s milk dealer. A portion of the house, first mentioned in local history in 1789, is one of the oldest structures in Warrensburg. It was once the home of the town’s first supervisor, James L. Thurman.)

To the editor: I want to take this moment to commend the administration, faculty, employees and students of the Warrensburg Central Junior-Senior High School on receiving a bronze medal from the U.S. News & World Report magazine as a top school in the nation.

The output of the Portland Cement Co. in Glens Falls, has doubled in the last three years. The state Court of Appeals has upheld a law that prohibits the sale of liquor within 200 feet of a church or schoolhouse, unless the hotel or saloon was established prior to March 23, 1896. Mrs. Lillian Ordway, of Indian Lake, has been granted an absolute divorce from Leon Ordway by Judge Houghton of Saratoga and she will resume her maiden name of Hall. She has custody of their three-year-old son. In Johnsburgh Corners, the Rowland Graphite Co. has suspended work in the mine for the winter. E. Hewitt is having his dwelling place plastered and Elmer Russell is doing the work. Charley Armstrong is putting new roofs on his farm buildings. Winter is here and the boys are putting in full time with their handsleds. Henry Barber, the little son of Truman Barber, broke his leg while coasting on the crust. Some girls riding down hill in Johnsburgh ran against Mrs. George Green, who was returning home from church, knocking her down and hurting her quite badly. John Coulter of North River is selling sleighs and has a new lot coming from the factory. Charley Baker ’s grist mill in Bakers Mills will close for the winter on Jan. 1, 1910. George Twiss of The Glen, son of Mrs. Joseph Bruno, had a severe attack of appendicitis. Nora, youngest daughter of C. Bruno of Hill View (Diamond Point), is very ill with diphtheria and Dr. Bean of Lake George is looking into the advisability of closing the school for a while. Charles E. Wheeler of Warrensburgh has been very ill with pneumonia at his home on King St. Delbert Tucker of Stony Creek was called to Glens Falls Hospital due to the serious condition of his son, Dewey who was operated upon twice for appendicitis.

More than 21,000 public schools in 48 states were analyzed to find the very best high schools in the country. With over 1,000 schools eligible to be considered, New York garnered 23 gold, 30 silver & 69 bronze medals. Warrensburg Junior Senior High School was the only school in Warren County and one of only 69 schools in New York State that were awarded a Bronze Medal. It was through the hard work, dedication and commitment of teachers, students, staff and administration that our school district received this prestigious recognition. The ability to succeed can only be achieved through a strong educational system as evident in the district. As a parent of school-age children, I want to extend to you my deepest appreciation for a job well done. James Carrion Member, Board of Education Warrensburg Central School District Warrensburg

Thanks for your tuneful caroling! To the editor: We want to thank the carolers who stopped by our Lake Avenue home Saturday evening Dec. 29 to sing Christmas carols. Their singing was harmonious and much appreciated. As Warrensburg residents know, we light our front porch with decorations for the enjoyment of young and old alike. Hopefully this puts a smile on a few faces and adds to Christmas cheer in Warrensburg. Thanks again, carolers — great job! Happy Holidays to all. Mary Ellen and Jerry Reed Warrensburg

BOLTON LANDING — A gala sendoff party held recently to honor the town of Bolton’s chief executive was a popular and appreciated event, attendees and organizers reported this week. The festive affair was held as a tribute to Town Supervisor Kathleen Simmes, who is stepping down from her post as of Dec. 31. She announced the move months ago, citing that she wanted to spend more time with her family. But this week, Simmes told the Adirondack Journal that her retirement from local politics might be temporary — that she might run in 2011 for a seat on the Bolton Town Board. “The commitment of time is incredible for the supervisor post, with the extensive job between the town and county,” she said. “But If I could serve on the town council, I’d love to do that.” The party was held Dec. 5 at the Bolton Conservation Park, — a facility for which Simmes launched a redevelopment plan. The event, included a pot luck dinner, entertainment, and plenty of socializing. Simmes said she was happy that a capacity crowd of 80 showed up, had a good time, and and wished her well. “It was wonderful, and I was absolutely thrilled,” she said. Serving as deejay was Charlie Giknis of Absolute Sound. Simmes reflected this week on her thoughts about retirement from the supervisor post, thoughts that were prompted by talking with the well-wishers. Elected Bolton Town Supervisor in 2007, Simmes has served one two-year term in the post. Beforehand, she served as Town Clerk from Aug. 1979 through 2007. “Over these years as Supervisor and Town Clerk, I’ve seen generations of Bolton residents come and go — it’s kind of sad — and I’ve witnessed many other changes in town as well,” she said. “But I’m so grateful to have had the job.” At the party, one of the town board members presented

Simmes’ relatives attending the event included her daughter Lori, son David, her husband Harry, and their grandchildren, D.J., age 17, and Johnathan, 12. Also attending was Bolton resident Nellie Wurzbach, age 101, and Supreme Court Judge David Krogmann of Glens Falls, who long ago served as town attorney, Simmes said. “I am really happy everyone turned out,” she said.

Most recent budget cuts merely theoretical In a marathon six-hour session Tuesday, the supervisors cut about $700,000 in appropriations out of the budget and added about $400,000 in revenue. This latter bonus was merely a revision of an earlier projection of revenue from electricity generated at the county-owned trash burn plant. Other last-round "savings" in the 2010 budget were theoretical. No jobs were cut in this last round, and few expenses were actually trimmed except an an across-the-board reduction of 10 percent to the county’s budgeted $1.26 million in overtime. Supervisors including Red Pitkin of Thurman

warned Friday that many of the budget cuts may be an illusion, as the county department heads have made many cuts now, but will likely be returning mid-year 2010 to seek extra money shifted to fund their operations when they run out of cash. He also warned about over-optimistic speculation on revenues. "These cuts look good on paper, but I am concerned about the quality of our decisions,” Pitkin said.

Public safety to be compromised? Budget Officer Kevin Geraghty warned that county department heads would be told that they couldn’t come back in mid-2010 for supplementary appropriations or more overtime money. But Monroe, Chairman of the Board of Supervisors, said such a dictate would be next to impossible — that the county has an obligation

to provide vital services. Overtime in the Sheriff ’s Office and Public Works department would likely be paid regardless of the supervisors’ dictate of a 10 percent reduction, he said. “If a burglar breaks into someone’s house, or we have more snow than we’ve allotted for, our county employees must and will respond,” he said. “If heavy rains wash out a highway like they did with county Rte. 11 in Bolton, it’s a matter of public safety, and we’ll have to pay for it.” Public Works Commissioner William Lamy said that regardless of cuts this year of hundreds of thousands of dollars to his operations — and DPW job cuts of nearly a dozen — the county’s roads will remain as safe as they have in the past. This year, the county highway crews will have one person manning each snow plow, rather than a wingman onboard, as tradi-

tional. Other decreases stemmed from a recent demand to department heads to cut an additional 3 percent from their budgets to avoid layoffs — and the executives responded with $385,000 or so in new appropriation cuts. Also, the county supervisors cut their own pay by 5 percent.

Two executives cut their own annual pay Budget reductions earlier this year include hundreds of thousands of dollars slashed from county support to Warren County Cooperative Extension. It was announced Friday that Extension Director James Seeley has volunteered to take a 20 percent pay cut to keep vital programs intact for those of moderate income. The income tax preparation service that Extension offered last year might have to be

scrapped, Supervisor Dan Girard said. Seeley's pay concession follows the voluntary pay cut by county Information Technology Director Robert Metthe, who offered to cut his pay voluntarily by 20 percent to save a job of one of his employees. The county’s last round of cuts, ready for approval today, includes eliminating the job of accomplished planner Laura Moore, a resident of Warrensburg. The reduced budget also includes savings generated by the PBA union, representing the county sheriff's deputies delaying the deputies’ 3.5 pay raise for six months. Other unions, including the CSEA, have not cooperated, and supervisors have said privately that such lack of consideration of taxpayers will have repercussions when their contracts expire. A move to sell one of the sheriff's boat patrol boats

was scrapped Friday after Queensbury Supervisor William VanNess reported that such an action may force the county to repay the $60,000 purchase cost although the boat is only worth about $10,000 now. Monroe says, noting that Medicaid costs have increased about $1 million annually in recent years, and there's no end in sight. A resolution objecting to the everincreasing costs was forwarded to the county Legislative Committee. He has also decried the ever-increasing costs shifted from the state to the counties, particularly those prompted by the $3 billion state budget gap. New announcements are made nearly weekly by state leaders of additional costs for mandated programs being shifted to counties, he said. County officials said Friday that January’s tax bills may be mailed a little late because of problems determining the exact impact of salary and expense cuts in the budget.

one of several supervisors who changed their vote, said he did so because of the public sentiment against the hike. The vote came after a passionate, testy debate Friday between opponents and supporters of the hike, who said that the county needed the additional $12 million to $16 million in annual revenue to rebuild the county’s depleted financial reserves and decrease county property taxes. Warren County Board of Supervisors Chairman Fred Monroe contended that temporarily increasing sales tax — a discretionary tax which would be shared by tourists — was far preferable than boosting unavoidable property taxes, which he said would be forcing people out of their homes and crimping businesses. He said that foreclosures and late property tax payments had multiplied in the last several years, and a property tax hike was not only an additional burden to citizens, but it would decrease county revenues. “Property tax is killing our county residents, and these tax increases don't make sense,” Monroe said. He predicted that up to $4 million in county property tax revenue would be in jeopardy in 2010 after the 6.1 percent property tax hike is imposed in January. Most of the support for the sales tax increase over boosted property taxes came from upcounty supervisors, whose constituents would be facing disproportionately high county property tax increases. In Johnsburg, the 2010 county tax hike of 6.1 percent would translate to a 23.4 percent tax increase, where 20 percent of households are now under the poverty level, Johnsburg Supervisor Sterling Goodspeed said. “This is going to be devastating, and people are going to lose their homes,” he said. “We are turning away from an opportunity to control our taxes — We are making a terrible mistake.” Voting against rescinding the sales tax hike request were Goodspeed, Monroe, Bolton Supervisor Kathleen Simmes, Ralph Bentley of Horicon, Dan Belden of Hague, Red Pitkin of Thurman, Frank Thomas of Stony Creek, Gene Merlino of Lake Luzerne, and Glens Falls supervisors Daniel Girard and Joseph Sheehan. Warrensburg Supervisor Kevin Geraghty voted for the measure. Lake George Supervisor Lou Tessier, who has supported the sales tax hike in the past, was not present at Friday’s meeting due to the death of a relative. An alternative initiative calling for an increase of 0.5 percent in the sales tax rate, supported by Thurman Supervisor Red Pitkin and many other supervisors, failed in a subsequent vote.

You can’t eat the antlers I

was a just a young chap barely knee high to a duck when I first was extended the privilege of accompanying a deer hunt with my father and uncles. True to form my uncle Eddie dropped a stunning 10pointer on the second drive and we began the ritualistic trip over the river and through the woods to grandmother ’s house where we hung our deer for aging. Along the way, as I recall, we made a quick stop for some road Pepsi’s and a group of looky-loos wandered over to admire the slammer rack that peaked over the side of the pickup bed. “Nice deer,” one of them exclaimed, then turned and congratulated my uncle.


Ed spun and without skipping a beat said: “Don’t congratulate me, congratulate the deer — he grew em’.” Interestingly, in this age of record-book keeping, antler restrictions, selective harvest and land management depicted on popular television shows, I think some have lost sight of one simple fact: Deer are tasty. Our forefathers hunted not for the trophy rack or bragging rights but rather to put nutritious, high-protein food on the table. Most would roll over in their grave to see Michael Waddell let a 140 class walk by because it wasn’t a “management buck.” I have a real problem with trophy hunters — I have no qualms saying it. I find it disheartening that some place more value on the trophy than the meat. In my mind, if you aren’t in it for the latter it gives true hunters a bad name. It also is not always what’s best for the herd as a whole. Shooting an animal to put the antlers on the wall is no different than cutting them off in the woods and leaving the meat to rot. Aged traditions of crews butchering their own deer and dividing the meat have in some cases been replaced with dropping the deer at the taxidermist and piling the leather-like meat in the freezer bottom till its gangrene. I remember a recent conversation between a longtime hunting chum and one such hunter who was boasting about letting an 8-pointer walk by because it wasn’t worthy of the wall. “Guess you didn’t need the meat,” he said. Amen to that. Don’t get me wrong — I begrudge no one a trophy set of antlers and have taken tremendous pride in dropping several sets of my own.

My cousin, Lieutenant Dan, poses with a young spike he filled the freezer with this season, lending credence to my theory that it’s not always about the rack. But that, in my mind, should be the icing on the cake, not what defines the hunt. And no one should be apologetic for filling the freezer — as long as they do it legally and need or enjoy the meat. I was reminded of this the other day when my cousin Danny entered a small spike horn he shot this season in a “monster rack” competition at a popular local radio station. He entered it not because it had a chance of winning, but because he shot it after his young son Hudson spied the small buck and pointed it out to his Dad. It was Hudson’s first time hunting and he is now hooked for life, my cousin said. “Besides,” Danny said, “You don’t eat the antlers ... they just help stir the stew.” Priceless.

Bolton 50, Minerva-Newcomb 16 BOLTON LANDING — Junior sensation Matt Smith recorded 18 points and 13 rebounds as Bolton dominated Minerva-Newcomb Dec. 17 in this Mountain & Valley Athletic Conference game. Bolton Seniors Dom Pfau and Matt Peterson contributed with nine apiece, Sophomore Mitchell Jordan tallied seven points, and Freshman Bill Smith added six in this balanced effort. While Minerva-Newcomb put up a good fight in the first quarter, the Eagles shut them down 23-2 in the next two stanzas for their second win of the season. Bolton bolstered their reputation of long-shot prowess, with Peterson hitting 3 three-pointers and Pfau adding two.

Lake George 62, North Warren 19

During a recent matchup with Bolton, Warrensburg basketball Senior standout Brendan Frye is cornered by Eagle defenders. This week, Frye hit a fade-away jumpshot in the last two seconds of overtime to propel his team to a 51-49 victory over Hartford.

Boys Varsity Basketball Warrensburg 51, Hartford 49, OT HARTFORD — The explosive, elusive Brandon Frye, backed up by talented teammates, secured another key win Dec. 18 against Hartford as he turned a tie overtime game into a Warrensburg victory. Burgher fans were on their feet as Frye charged up court and hit a fade-away jump shot with 2 seconds left in the extra stanza. Frye led the Burghers with 19 points, a record for the game, and John Joseph contributed 12 points. Also scoring for the Burghers were Ryan Belden with seven points, Mike Curtis with six and Mike Perrone, five. For Hartford, Trevor Holcomb had 12 points. The Tanagers were aggressive offensively, and they were sharp-shooters outside, hitting 5 three-point shots.

Fort Ann 53, North Warren 48 FORT ANN — A runaway third-quarter scoring streak of 19 points for Fort Ann overturned a solid North Warren lead in this Adirondack League 48-53 loss Dec. 18 for the Cougars. Robert Sprague of the Cardinals grabbed 13 rebounds and scored 20 points in Fort Ann's win Dec. 18 over the Cougars. Sprague’s teammate Derek Durkee, with 15 points, was also a force to contend with in this heartbreaker. The Cougars regrouped in the fourth quarter to contain the Cardinals and outscored them, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the damage in the previous stanza. For the game, Junior Bryan Beckler led North Warren with 20 points. Senior Jeff Bennett, a guard, contributed 14 points, while Junior Joe Aiken and Sophomore Kristian Seeley both added 6 and Frasier chipped in with 2. North Warren put up a good outside effort hitting 3 three-pointers — two by Bennett and one by Aiken. While North Warren is now 0-3 in the League, they’re nearly even overall at 2-3.

Lake George 50, Salem 39 SALEM — In their matchup Dec. 18 against Salem, Lake George took a commanding lead early — tallying 33-10 by the half — and the Generals couldn’t recover despite General standout Austin Eastman’s athletic shooting, aggressive rebounding and stingy defense. Eastman’s virtual oneman show resulted in a triple-double. Warrior Junior Center Matt McGowan led the Warriors’ effort with a game-high 20 points. Senior Guard Kyle Burden contributed 11 including one three-pointer, and the versatile Junior Alex Hladik tallied 9 — including two more shots from downtown. Jenkins added 5 and Kosz and Chambers combined for another 5 wrapping up this Warrior win. Eastman led Salem with 18 points, 14 rebounds and 10 blocks. Lake George remains unbeaten in the Adirondack League at 3-0, fulfilling fans’ expectations that they will be among the top in the League’s Western Division.

LAKE GEORGE — Lake George’s height, depth and aggressive defense contained North Warren in this Warrior Adirondack League victory Dec. 16. Junior Center Matt McGowan tallied 16 points and 12 rebounds to lead Lake George, with teammate Junior Alex Hladik adding 14 points and Senior Kris Kosz scoring 10. With the Warriors controlling the inside and focusing on the Cougar upperclassmen, Sophomore Guard Kristian Seeley stepped up and led North Warren with seven points. His offensive effort was aided by Junior Forward Joe Aiken with six points, Junior Forward Travis Monroe with three, Sophomore Forward Benn Frasier with two and Senior Guard Jeff Bennett with one. Lake George’s victory was aided by Junior Point Guard Jeff Maldonado contributing 8 points, Senior Forward Cameron Dorman and Junior Forward J.D. Jenkins with 4 points, Junior Forward Matt Stover adding 3, Sophomore Aaron Chambers with two, and Junior Center Corey Yorks chipping in off the bench with one. Shooting from afar were Maldonado with 2 three-pointers and Hladik with one for the Warriors, and Seeley with one for the upcounty Cougars.

Bolton 58, Lake Placid 32 BOLTON LANDING — Savvy teamwork and a balanced scoring effort featuring underclass hotshots resulted in a decisive non-league victory Dec. 1`5 for Bolton over Lake Placid. While Lake Placid concentrated on containing Bolton standout Senior Dom Pfau, his 6’4” teammate Junior Matthew Smith was unleashed to score 12 points, aided by Junior Tyler Calzada and Sophomore Mitchell Jordan with 9 each. Jordan, 6’1”, also brought down 13 rebounds in the campaign. Junior Andy Smith scored 7, followed by Senior Matt Peterson with 6, and Sophomore Todd Markham 5, Freshman Bill Smith and Dom Pfau 4 each, and Junior Caleb Kneeshaw, 2 . Logan Stephenson led Lake Placid with 12 points.

Junior Caroline Murphy tallying seven points, seven rebounds and seven steals, demonstrated how balanced, aggressive play worked well for the Warriors, now 3-0 in the Adirondack League. Also contributing in the effort were Juniors Brittany Baker with 7 points; Nicole Bureau adding 6; Jenna Bechard, 4; Courtney Mastrodomenico, 4; Kelly Flaherty, 3; Lauren Pennock, 2; and Sophomores Amanda Chambers, 3, and Chelsea Sipowicz, 2. Patricia Russo scored a team-high nine points for the Generals. Lake George won the Junior Varsity matchup.

Elizabethtown 36, Bolton 33 BOLTON — The mid-section of this game, frustrating to the home-standing Eagles primarily for its 16 unforced turnovers, led to a slim loss for Bolton. Not all was glum in the effort, however, as Senior Danielle

Determined Cougar squad defeats Fort Ann By Thom Randall CHESTERTOWN — With two starters fouled out and several absent, a depleted North Warren Girls Basketball squad pulled off an improbable 41-35 victory Dec. 18 against Fort Ann. A last-minute offensive surge spearheaded by North Warren sophomore Kiera Warner made the crucial difference in the Adirondack League win. With 45 seconds remaining and the score tied, the pressure was intense for the five eligible Cougar players that remained, North Warren coach P.J. Hogan said Monday. “Our players demonstrated good resiliency and team-

work to come back and win the game even though we were so short-handed,” he said. Knowing that her talented senior teammates Kat Andonucci and Sarah Erikson were sidelined for fouls, Warner made the offensive moves that won the League matchup. With the score knotted, Hogan called a timeout and set up a jumpshot for Warner from the wing, and her throw drove through the net. Fort Ann took their turn, but missed their shot, and Warner then rebounded the ball. Warner then dribbled the ball the length of the court, eluding her opponents, and completed a layup that sealed the game, Hogan said. “The girls really pulled together,” he said. Warner tallied 10 steals with her 12 points, and Kat An-

donucci demonstrated her athleticism by sinking 13 points and grabbing 12 rebounds. Assisting them were sophomore Cassie Maday with 7 points — including one three-pointer, junior Morgan Tennyson with 5 and senior Kelsey Hamblin with 4. The Cougar roster was depleted because senior Laura Fahey wasn’t competing due to an injury, and juniors Jessica May and Lindsey Meade were on family trips. For Fort Ann, Breanna Moore tallied 20 points. With the victory, North Warren is now 2-3 overall. Next up is North Warren’s annual Christmas tournament Dec. 29 and 30, featuring Johnsburg, Schroon Lake and Warrensburg.

WCS Wrestlers capture 2nd in Granville mass tourney By Thom Randall WARRENSBURG — The Warrensburg varsity wrestling team faced off against 13 other wrestling teams Saturday in the annual Granville tournament, and they pleased their fans by taking second place overall despite a wealth of talent enrolled in the mass meet. Four in the squad were named champions in their weight class and four others placed in the tourney. Named champion at 96 pounds was seventh-grade sensation Aiden Szabo who now has a formidable 9-2 lifetime Varsity record. Freshman Beecher Baker, son of the former Mr. Plattsburgh contestant, lived up to his family name and took home a trophy as champion at 103 pounds. Beecher has now won nine matches in a row after losing the first four of the season. Also awarded First Place were Donovan Santisteban at 119 and Kendall Converse at 189. While Santisteban is now resuming his winning ways of earlier seasons, Converse has emerged just this year as a tough contender after beefing up in the weight room and sharpening his knowledge of moves. The talented Cole Tennant took second in the tourney at 152; followed by two third-place winners, Logan Winter at 130 pounds and Jeremy Barber at 171. Tony Auricchio, a newcomer who is now showing his developing talent, came in fourth overall at 285 pounds. Coming up this week is a highlight in the local wrestling calendar: Senior Day — the last home match of the year. The matchup, against Hoosick Falls, is set for 10 a.m. Dec. 31.

Burghers defeat Schuylerville With a strong showing from heavyweights, the Warrensburg Varsity wrestling team beat Schuylerville 37-27 in a nonleague matchup Dec. 15. Jeremy Barber, Kendall Converse and Chris Turner all pinned their

Schuylerville opponents in the effort. Converse and Barber showed fans some aggressive action as they took down their opponents in only a half-minute. Schuylerville Senior Sarah Anderson, who has received national acclaim for her talent, would have wrestled Warrensburg standout Abby Roth at 112 pounds, but she was sidelined recently due to a shoulder injury. Jon Vaisey, who moved up from 103 pounds for the match, filled in for Roth, but lost. As of Monday, Roth was expected to be in the lineup

for Wednesday’s match and the New Year ’s Eve meet against Hoosick Falls. Coach Mark Trapasso said Monday that the performance of his heavyweights against Schuylerville, which secured the win for the Burghers, was up to his expectations. “They’re just doing their job and getting better all the time,” he said. 103 - Beecher Baker (W) won by forfeit. 112 - S. Anderson (S) pinned Jon Vaisey, :55. 119 - Donovan Santisteban (W) decisioned J. Anderson,
