Officials pursue ski museum in North Creek
Chestertown’s Santa, Mrs. Clause to retire
By Thom Randall email@example.com NORTH CREEK Ñ An effort is underway to establish a New York State ski industry museum in North Creek, state Sen. Betty Little revealed at the Warren County Supervisors meeting held Friday Dec. 20. With its rich history of winter sports, North Creek would be ideal for a ski museum that could serve as a regional attraction and draw people from across the state Ñ which would benefit local commerce, she and Johnsburg Supervisor Ron Vanselow said. She said discussions have occurred regarding the concept, and a local committee is forming to develop and promote a plan for such a venue. Vanselow is a member of the group. North Creek would be the ideal site for a state ski museum because the community hosted the first ski patrol, ski trails and ski train in New York State, Little said. Ò This could be a great attraction for North Creek, she CONTINUED ON PAGE 14

Skiers glide down a slope at Gore Mountain Ski Center in Johnsburg. Because the North Creek/Johnsburg area hosts two of the most historic skiing venues in the state and the U.S., local leaders are considering establishing a New York State skiing museum in North Creek, which is envisioned to boost tourism year-round.
Projects progressing in Warrensburg By Thom Randall firstname.lastname@example.org WARRENSBURG — The first phase of a solar generation project planned by local municipal government has received approval from the Adirondack Park Agency, town Supervisor Kevin Geraghty announced at the Dec. 11 monthly town board meeting.
Plans call for dozens of solar panels to be erected at the town sewer treatment plant off state Rte 418. Present plans call for the panels, set up along the state highway, to generate a total of 50,000 watts. The town, however, may be seeking an increase in the power output to 100,000 watts after the New York State Energy Research & Development Authority doubled its maximum energy output restriction for
installations, eligible for grants and credits, at non-profit entities. A permit was required from the APA because of the proximity of the panels to the Schroon River, which is situated not far away on the other side of state Rte. 418. Warrensburg is seeking to install more solar arrays at other town properties in

Tri-Lakes Alliance plans new events By Thom Randall email@example.com CHESTERTOWN Ñ Plans have been aired to launch new events in northern Warren County and to pursue new initiatives that draw more visitors into the rural hamlets to boost the prospects of local businesses.
The concepts and events under development were dicussed at a Dec. 13 meeting of the Tri-Lakes Business Alliance, which has experienced remarkable success to date in boosting the upcounty economy and spurring the social and cultural activity in Chestertown, Pottersville and Brant Lake. Among the new ideas aired were to expand existing holiday celebrations held in Chestertown as well as promoting New Years Eve celebrations at restau-
rants and taverns in northern Warren County this next week. Members of the Tri-Lakes Business Alliance have proposed to increase family-oriented activities at the combined Taste of the Tri-Lakes fest and the Chestertown Memory Tree Lighting ceremony, which was CONTINUED ON PAGE 13

Hickory Ski Center opens - first time in years By Thom Randall
firstname.lastname@example.org WARRENSBURG Ñ Due to recent snowstorms and cold weather, Hickory Ski Center opened last weekend for a one-day initial skiing session Ñ and itÕ s not only one of its earliest openings in decades, but it’s the first time the classic skiing venue has been open for three years. Hickory was open Saturday, Dec. 21 for a special bonus day of pre-Christmas skiing, which featured free lift tickets for children age 12 and under with the purchase of an adult lift ticket, a mere $25 each. Area ski enthusiasts said this week they are hopeful Hickory would be open again this weekend and continue to be open for the 201314 ski season, as the National Weather Service twas forecasting that prevailing cold weather would continue. The lower mountain, served by the T-bar and
the Poma-1 life were operating on Dec. 21, and these slopes featured an 8-inch to 10-inch base of natural snow. Hickory owner Bill Van Pelt said Dec. 20 that ski patrol personnel will continue to evaluate snow conditions and make a determination whether skiing at the historic ski center Ñ favored by traditionalists from all over the U.S. Ñ will occur during upcoming weekends. For current information on conditions at Hickory, see: www.hickoryskicenter.com. For many years, Hickory has become a favored destination for skiers seeking a vintage skiing experience. Hickory has earned a reputation for among skiing purists with its spectacular vistas, natural snow, challenging slopes and winding trails.

NW students create holiday cards, help typhoon victims By Thom Randall
email@example.com CHESTERTOWN Ñ Concerned about the severe hardships that Philippine families were experiencing in the wake of the devastating typhoon, a classroom of North Warren Elementary students launched a fundraiser to help out. In doing so, they combined creativity with their charity Ñ they created holiday designs that were transformed into holiday greeting cards that they sold to peers, family, and neighbors. Through the project, the Fourth Grade students taught by Poul Carstensen raised $350 for the American Red Cross relief effort to help Philippine families in dire need of medical care, food, water and clothing. Meanwhile, the children expressed their artistic talents. Before Thanksgiving, the fourth graders created drawings of various holiday scenes and Carstensen computerized the images and produced notecards bearing the studentsÕ artistry. Through the process, Carstensen demonstrated to the students the functions of publishing software. Ò Their artwork was fresh, original and spontaneous,Ó Carstensen said, noting the children created the artwork on their own time. Ò IÕ m in awe of what they came up with.Ó The holiday notecards, in full color and printed on quality paper stock, were sold by the students at $10 per package to their peers, teachers, and North Warren staff members. Student Katelyn Turano was the top salesperson in the effort, Carstensen said. This isn’t the first year Carstensen’s students have conducted the fundraiser. In past years, his pupils have raised money for the local food pantry, the ASPCA, and for the United Nations International ChildrenÕ s Relief Fund Ñ which the students chose after hearing of the poverty, hunger and lack of medical care plaguing third world countries. They also have conducted fundraisers to benefit tsunami victims in Japan, and Jamaican citizens with urgent needs. This recent effort demonstrated the young studentsÕ concern for people facing overwhelming circumstances, Carstensen said. Ò Not only is their artistry is top notch, they really bought into the idea of helping others,Ó he said. Ò And I was very humbled by the response we got from the community.Ó
Selling holiday cards bearing their classmates’ original art in a recent fundraiser to help Philippine typhoon victims were North Warren fourth graders (front, left to right): John Mesch, Thomas Conway, Olivia Slater, Andrew Beadnell, Brayden Olden, Chloe Castro, (rear): Amelia Hilton, Isabella Swartz, Nicole Buckman, Katelyn Turano, Aleya Williamson, Alana Thacker, Isabella Lewis, and Jacquelyn Rundall.
Chestertown’s Santa & Mrs. Claus to retire firstname.lastname@example.org CHESTERTOWN Ñ For decades, the Chestertown Rotary Club has brightened the holidays for children in northern Warren County by hosting a visit in Chestertown by Santa Claus. Year after year the famed holiday figure has arrived bearing gifts, good cheer and behavior advice. By next year, however, children who have gazed into SantaÕ s face and shared their Christmas wishes may notice some subtle changes in his appearance, because Jerry Meader, the man behind the familiar face for more than 15 years, has announced his retirement. This yearÕ s visit, held Dec. 7, hosted 200 children, a number of whom would have otherwise had a bleak holiday without the visit which includes RotaryÕ s traditional generous gift presentations. The event also annually features live holiday music, refreshments, and horse-drawn wagon rides. This year, the Friends of the Chester Library gave out books to the children attending. It was in the mid-1990Õ s that Jerry Meader agreed to serve as Santa and he started his lengthy tenure portraying the gener-

ous, insightful character. In recent years, Elna Meader has joined her husband, as Mrs. Claus, in greeting the children. Chestertown publicist Shep Peck said that the members of his organization deeply appreciated Jerry and Elna Meader for their many years of service to the children of northern Warren County. Ò They will be a tough act to follow,Ó he said. Efforts to reach the Meaders were unsuccessful this week Ñ and Peck said he wasnÕ t surprised that Santa was preoccupied, considering the demands on his during the holiday season. Pictured at right: Posing for a photo during Santa’s recent visit to Chestertown — an event sponsored by the local Rotary Club — are (left to right): elf Jim Fregoe of the Chestertown Rotary, Jerry Meader as Santa, Elna Meader as Mrs. Claus and elf Noelle McCrum from the Friends of the Chester Library.

623-2967 - email@example.com The holiday break from school is extra-long this year, due to Christmas falling a Wednesday. The school vacation is a record 16 days off, and if you are like many parents or caregivers you are most likely at your witsÕ end right about now.

The requirement for a prize is being active for 30 minutes per day for 12 of the 16 days of vacation. If you didnÕ t receive a copy of this in your childÕ s book bag give me a call or email me and IÕ d be happy to send a copy to you.

DEC rangers conduct rescues in wilds around Lake George LAKE GEORGE Ñ Forest rangers assigned to the Lake George area were busy in October and November conducting rescues Ñ including two rock-climbers stuck on a high cliff, according to Department of Environmental Conservation Region 5 officials. On Oct. 13 at about 6:30 p.m., the caretaker at Rogers Rock Campground was told by a camper of two climbers stuck on the face of Rogers Rock in the Town of Hague. The climbers had equipment malfunction and were unable to move up or down. Nine DEC Forest Rangers gathered at the summit of Rogers Rock to rescue Cedric Bien, 28, and Susannah Gue, 27, of New York City, who were stranded approximately 250 feet from the bottom of the 650-feet high main slab of Rogers Slide. A rope system was deployed and a Forest Ranger was lowered 450 feet down the face of the cliff to the climbers. They explained that were descending the cliff when their top rope became snagged, preventing them from moving farther. The climbers had yelled to a passing boater who sought assistance from the campground. The Forest Ranger attached Bien and Gue to the lines of his rope system and the three were lowered to the base of the cliff. The two climbers were returned to their campsite at Rogers Rock Campground after midnight. On Nov. 16 at 12:42 p.m., DEC received a call reporting a lost hunter in the Pharoah Lake Wilderness Area in the town of Horicon. Edmund Haynes, 70, of Hudson Falls had a medical issue that required him to be found quickly. Six DEC Forest Rangers responded to the scene. At 3:15 p.m., Haynes was located and walked to the trailhead, where Emergency Medical responders treated and released him. On Oct. 3, at 7:20 p.m., authorities received a 911 call reporting reporting two hikers, one of whom was injured, that needed assistance. Louise McNutt, 53, and Marissa Pond, 20, both of Loudonville were hiking on Buck Mountain towards Pilot Knob in the town of Fort Ann. Pond had injured her ankle earlier so they werenÕ t moving fast, rangers reported. It was getting dark and neither of them had a flashlight. Two DEC Forest Rangers responded to Pilot Knob with an ATV. The two women were located 1.5 miles from the trailhead.

Credit protection advice offered for Target customers BUFFALO Ð The Better Business Bureau of upstate New York offered advice this for Target customers concerned that their credit or debit cards may have been compromised by the retailerÕ s recent data breach. Warren Clark, president of the agency, said this week that Target customers will not be liable for any fraudulent charges on their account, and some simple actions can make sure their cards are protected from crime. Target is working with banks and credit card issuers to alert them to which numbers were stolen, he said. The cardholders that may have had their card data Ñ including security codes Ñ exposed to criminals were those bank cards and credit cards used in Target stores between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15. Ò You can expect to hear from your bank if your card information is identified as having been compromised,” he said, noting that customers should call the customer service phone number on their card if they have questions. The Better Business Bureau offers the following advice for those who shopped at Target with a credit or debit card during the dates in question: • Monitor your credit card statements carefully — scrutinize online; donÕ t wait for a paper statement. • Sign up for the free credit monitoring service that Target announced to protect potential victims of the data breach. • If you see a fraudulent charge, report it to your bank or cred-
it card issuer immediately so the charge can be reversed and a new card issued. • Keep receipts in case you need to prove which charges you authorized and which ones you did not. For those who shopped at Target with a debit card: • Do all of the above, but also scrutinize your account, as debit cards do not have the same protections as credit cards and debit transactions withdraw funds directly from your bank account. Contact your bank for more information, or if you want to preemptively request a new debit card or put a security block on your account. • Consider a fraud alert with all three credit reporting agencies – The credit reporting agencies are required by law to flag your credit report for 90 days if you file a fraud alert. Then if someone tries to open a new account using your information you should be contacted for verification. • Sign up for free credit report monitoring that’s offered, but make sure itÕ s legitimate. If Target offers a free monitoring program, take advantage of it. • Keep monitoring your account: For those who have been exposed to a breach of data, itÕ s important to continue to examine account statements for two or more years. Unless there is clear proof that the data never fell into criminal hands, there is still a point of concern for the exposed consumer. Smart criminals understand that the data is Ò hotÓ for a year or so. ItÕ s not unusual
equipment is no longer compatible with current technology and the municipal frequencies specified by state authorities. • A resolution was adopted to accept a transfer of a strip of land about 12 feet wide and 190 feet long beside the site of Hudson Headwater Health NetworkÕ s Warrensburg Health Center now under development. The strip is beside the Tucker building and allows access to the pharmacy drive-through window at the complex. Accepting the land is subject to a permissive referendum. • Councilwoman Linda Marcella reported about the recent activities of the Warrensburg Economic Develpment Committee which she chairs, noting that results of a community survey focusing on the future of Solar panels behind the Town of Chester Municipal Center soak up sun and generate electricity to power the town had been compiled by the complex — with the excess power being fed into the regional power grid.

future phases of the project, with an expectation of saving taxpayer dollars on utility costs while curbing the townÕ s carbon footprint. Under a proposed agreement with a private firm, the solar arrays Ñ which cost tens of thousands of dollars Ñ will not cost taxpayers anything up front, but will be paid off over time through receiving a portion of the savings that accrue on utility costs. In an agreement with a private enterprise, the town is guaranteed savings of 10 percent to 25 percent of its electricity expenses over the life of the contract, proposed to be 10 years.
Walkway denied, Chamber concern raised
In other business at the Dec. 11 meeting: • The town board heard from Supervisor Geraghty that the state Department of Transportation has denied the townÕ s request for a crosswalk to be established on Richards Avenue. The walkway would have connected the new Warrensburg Health Center now being developed with an employee parking lot across the road where the former Econo-Quick Car Wash was once located. The state agency cited that there would not be enough pedestrian traffic across Richards Avenue to warrant the crosswalk. • A letter was read from resident Anna Busser, citing concerns about how the Warrensburg Chamber of Commerce has refused to accept non-commercial entities or individuals as members. Busser, a member of the Greater Warrensburg Business Alliance, has been actively advocating a sustainable local economy. Busser and the Alliance conducted the recent Buy Local Warrensburg campaign that was a resounding success. Geraghty expressed concern that the Chamber was apparently not inclusive as it could be in its membership policies. Ò Considering that the Chamber receives public funding, we need to find out what’s going on and resolve this,” he said. • Local resident James S. Hull, a former Warrensburg Fire Chief, was re-appointed to the town Board of Assessment Review, with a term beginning Oct. 1, 2013 and expiring Sept. 30, 2018. Robert F. Kladis was appointed as a post of Temporary/ Alternate member of the same board for a one-year term beginning Oct. 1, 2013. • The town’s annual organizational meeting was set for 7 p.m. Thursday Jan. 2, which features the swearing-in of new or reelected town officials. A town board meeting was also scheduled for 4:30 p.m. Monday Dec. 30 to pay the final 2013 warrants and to conduct vital year-end business. • A motion was approved to hire David F. Barrass of Corinth to provide surveying services at a cost of $1,800 in connection with the grant-funded project to rehabilitate the Floyd Bennett Memorial Bandstand, the townÕ s most prominent symbol. • The board voted to sell outdated radio equipment used by the townÕ s highway, water and sewer departments, because the
Town exploring sewer plant upgrades
At the Dec. 11 meeting, Supervisor Geraghty announced that the Town of Warrensburg received a state grant award of $24,000 for an engineering study and report to evaluate potential upgrades to the town sewer plant to boost its capacity. Although in the plant was nearing its capacity some time ago, recent upgrades have increased its potential output. Additionally, the mandated installation of water meters in town has cut water consumption by 30 percent or more, which has slashed wastewater flow into the plant due to local residents conserving their water use. The board, however, intends to explore options to increase the plantÕ s capacity to accommodate potential commercial development within the water district. One such recent example has been the townÕ s contract to sell water and sewage services to the new Price Chopper plaza, now under construction just across the Schroon River in the town of Lake George, Geraghty said. Ò We want to evaluate our wastewater plant operation and determine how we can enhance and improve it,Ó he said, citing the various advances in WarrensburgÕ s infrastructure that have been
for crooks to wait to delay use of stolen data. For all credit card holders: • Beware of scammers who will likely use this highly public event to purport to be from Target, your bank or your credit card issuer, telling you that your card was compromised and suggesting actions to “fix” the problem. • Check before you click — “phishing” emails may attempt to fool you into providing your credit card information or ask you to click on a link or open an attachment, which can download malware designed to steal your identity. DonÕ t click on any email links or attachments unless you are absolutely certain the sender is authentic. • Contact any affected financial companies – If your bank accounts, credit card accounts, or investment accounts are affected, immediately contact the companies and request that the account be closed and a new one opened. Many advertisements claim to offer Ò free credit reports,Ó or Ò free credit monitoring.Ó Often, the service is free only if you sign up for another paid service. The best way to check your report is through AnnualCreditReport.com, a service sponsored by the three nationwide credit reporting agencies Ð Experian, Equifax and Transunion. The service is available online or by calling (877) 322-8228, and it allows consumers to get a free report from each agency once a year.
water meters. WeÕ ve experienced substantial progress this year in community, whether it has been the reconstruction of Main St., Hudson St., James St., Sanford St. or Woodward Avenue,Ó Geraghty continued. Ò And 2014 is another busy year for the townspeople, with the construction of the Warrensburg Health Center and the Price Chopper plaza off Prosser Road.Ó

Finally, the state smiles on the Adirondacks
or many years, it seemed those of us living in Northern New York could not catch a break. ItÕ s hard enough when we leave the area and people ask us where we are from. The response, Ò Northern New York,Ó is always followed by, Ò Albany?Ó Ò Syracuse?Ó Ò Buffalo?Ó Ò ?Ó Seriously, there actually was a national television reporter who would refer to Weschester County as Northern New York. It felt lawmakers saw the state in the same light. Millions and billions of dollars would flow like honey to everywhere but here, the Adirondacks. The rest of the state would evolve while the Adirondacks remained sheltered to all but a select few. Fortunately, one of those select few now wears the mantle of Governor, Andrew Cuomo. Since his election just over three years ago, the state funding pipeline has been expanded to include the North Country and the Adirondacks. The most recent example is the North Country Economic Development Council receiving $81.3 million in state funding to help with projects that will drive the economy of the region. Saranac Lake, which has been an Adirondack playground for Cuomo, received a generous share of the funding, with $5 million for the renovation of the Hotel Saranac and $2 million for the construction of a new resort and waterfront restaurant at the former Lake Flower Hotel. Bionique Testing Laboratories received $650,000 for expansion at its Lake Clear facility, adding 10,000 square feet for laboratories, storage and conference rooms; and the Pendragon Theatre in Saranac Lake received $3,360 for the hiring of a seasonal intern. Mayor Clyde Rabideau said Cuomo spoke highly of the area: Ò He really grew to love the area, knows what we are about and knows what we need.Ó It wasnÕ t just Saranac Lake. In Tupper Lake, the Wild Center received $250,000 to support Phase 2 of its Wild Walk. A pair of North Country movie theaters in Indian Lake and Au Sable Forks received funding necessary to make the transition to digital projection technology in order to stay in business. The Adirondack North Country Association received $59,200 for the Adirondack Regional Arts Trail. Towns and municipalities received funding for infrastruc-
ture projects and green energy alternatives. Two days later, the towns of Indian Lake, Long Lake, Minerva, Newcomb and North Hudson celebrated the land classification decisions made by the Adirondack Park Agency which would allow for snowmobile and hiking trail connectivity between the five towns and chances for economic growth. Cuomo was also at the forefront of this movement, bringing parties on the government, conservation and environmental sides of the issue to the table to come up with a land classification that would be acceptable to all sides. The state also showed strong support for the passage of Propositions 4 and 5, which both benefit the economy of the Adirondack Park. These are the most recent examples, but the biggest may still be the GovernorÕ s reaction to the North Country following Tropical Storm Irene. Cuomo was in the North Country two days after the storm cut its way through our region, devastating towns, destroying homes and uprooting families. His message remained constant: Ò We will rebuild better than before.Ó Since, the Cuomo administration has helped to fill the gap for the North Country, securing funding to rebuild both the Keene and Upper Jay Fire Houses and covering the remaining 25 percent in funding for FEMA property buyouts. We can sit here and hope that if it were any other governor, things would have been the same. But, we never saw David Patterson or Eliot Spitzer in the North Country. George Pataki, now an Essex resident, was the last governor before Cuomo to come to the area with any frequency, but not like this. Not all of his decisions have found favor here. The SAFE Act is a real bone of contention with a majority of North Country residents, many of whom are dependent upon or are themselves sportsmen. Local political leaders are split on the tax levy cap. Conservative groups find his push for equal marriage rights upsetting. However, with Andrew Cuomo in office, the state has often smiled upon the people of the North Country and the Adirondacks. As he prepares for what will most likely be a re-election bid as whispers of higher office float around him, we can only hope it remains this way for a long time to come.

Turning Back the Pages By Jean Hadden
•100 years ago —Dec. 1913- Jan. 1914• Old Glens Falls recalled
Now as we are about to enter the brand new year of 1914, it is good to look back and recall how far we have come since this areaÕ s primitive days of backbreaking labor and hardship that our forefathers endured. The bucolic area which was selected for Glens Falls is on the north bank of the Hudson River near the extreme southeast corner of the county. Originally, in the early days, the settlement was called the Ò Four Corners.Ó In old books it was given the name of Ò Glenville.Ó Later the name of Ò Pearlville,Ó or Ò Pearl VillageÓ was attached to it but that name never caught on. Eventually the name became Ò WingÕ s Falls,Ó in honor of prominent pioneer, land owner and tavern keeper Abraham Wing. After the Revolutionary War, however, affluent newcomer John Glen Jr., so the story goes, engaged in a card game with Wing and won the title of the village from him and henceforth it was called, Ò Glens Falls.Ó Another old story concerning the name change stated that around 1788, for the price of a banquet, Wing agreed to transfer to Glen the name of the hamlet. Wing was supervisor of the Queensbury area from 1766 to 1778 and died in 1795. In 1808 a post office was installed and “Glens Falls” was the official name adopted. John A. Ferris was the first postmaster and the post office was in a small corner of his store at the southeast corner of Warren and Glen Streets. In 1827 he bought one of the sawmills at Glens Falls. He took over as president of the Board of Trustees upon the death of Abraham Wing and was very active in village affairs. He died Sept. 8, 1840 and was buried in Kingsbury.
Drawing up plans
Moses Harris Jr., drew up a map of the area called, Ò Map of Pearl Village,Ó which was used as a basis for all deeds of that period. Early on, the original settlers saw the vast possibilities of land around the water power of the mighty Hudson River and the village began to grow
from that area they called, Ò Under the Hill,Ó which at that time was the principal part of Glens Falls. It extended from the canal bridge to the river. Located there was Reuben PutnamÕ s (Ò Rube PutÕ sÒ ) trip hammer and edge tool factory. WilliamsÕ Woolen Mill, Hyman J. CoolÕ s Cabinet and Chair Factory, GardnerÕ s Ark Mill, ArmsÕ Grist Mill, George PutÕ s (Putnam) Wagon Shop, EasterbrookÕ s Store and SpencerÕ s Tavern. Since the 1830Õ s, there were black marble mills on both sides of the river and the polished slabs were used for ornamental work, dwellings and public buildings. The rest of the village was called Ò on top of the hillÓ and the stores and dwellings were mostly located there. Modern plank sidewalks were not built until 1851 on Glen St.. In 1828 Glens Falls had not more than 300 or 400 inhabitants but it was a lively and busy place. The village was incorporated on April 12, 1839 when an act was passed by the State Legislature and signed by Gov. William H. Seward. By 1840 the population had grown to 1,289 persons, but that figure is misleading as it also included Queensbury as Glens Falls did not become a separate place until 1908.
The future remembers the past
Now, in 1913, there are still many old people around that remember the Ò good old daysÓ of Glens FallsÕ formative years. At this time one of the few old buildings left standing from those early days is that of the wagon shop building occupied by the LaSalle carriage business with its gable roof and a style of architecture that was popular 80 or more years earlier, really the last standing landmark of old Glens Falls. On the east side of the road leading up the hill elderly people remember a deep ravine, covered with a heavy growth of pine, hemlock and spruce trees, leaving but a narrow path for a walk and east of the road as far as the junction of what are now Warren and Canal streets were woods of cedar and yellow pine. Ò On top of the hillÓ from Elm St. to the mountain and north to Lake George were dense woods of yellow pine and here and there an opening. The streets in those days were called roads and were cared for by the town. If local citizens wanted to use these areas for their pleasure, no complaint was made.
In the early days Glens Falls was supplied with Ò tavernsÓ but had no saloons. Saloons had dining rooms which taverns did not. Liquor was sold by the glass at the taverns and by the pint or measure at stores. There were five stores on top of Glen Street hill at that time - three general stores and two drug stores. Prominent citizen Lyman Arms died in 1826 and John and Cyrus Burnham came to Glens Falls in 1832 and Orlin Mead and Lewis Numan later arrived. E.H. Rosekrans, Daniel H. Cowles and Jonathan W. Freeman came a year or two after that. Hazzard Green was constable. Ò LinkÓ (Orange) Ferris was judge of the county and a member of Congress. Ò DoddÓ (George) Spencer was a graduate of Union College and author of books of great merit Calvin Robbins was a blacksmith, In 1835 he built a brick shop with living quarters upstairs on the west side of Glen Street hill, a few feet south of the retaining wall and the building is still standing. Around 1830 John L. Kenworthy and his two sisters came to work in the cotton mill in South Glens Falls. Jones Ordway came and his first employment was chopping wood for 50 cents a cord. The pluck and industry that Ordway displayed were the foundation stones of his later great wealth. George G. Sickles and family arrived from New York City representing the owners of the Glens Falls CompanyÕ s property later owned by Finch & Pruyn. Daniel Sickles was a member of Congress, minister to Spain, Sheriff of New York County, a noted Major General in the Civil War and a resident of Glens Falls from 1831 to 1834. Today, in 1913, he is 93 years old and has a good memory for days gone by in his old home town.
An old landmark
The Threehouse tavern was a favorite hostelry. As early as 1832 this establishment had a sitting room named Ò the Bear GardenÓ and in the evening the room was never without a quorum of gentlemen who never knew when it was time for them to go home to their beds. To remedy this detriment to their health and welfare and send them on their way, the village employed a Ò bell ringerÓ whose business it was to ring the bell of the Presbyterian Church
at nine oÕ clock in the evening as a warning to the Ò bearsÓ that it was high time to say Ò good nightÓ and start out for home. May was the opening month for baseball. All citizens, old and young, participated. The game was played in the street in front of ThreehouseÕ s tavern in the area at the middle of Glen St. later known as Ò Fountain Square.Ó (Note: not far from the corner of Park St., the Ò ketcherÓ stood where the fountain would stand in the middle of the street in later years Ñ in modern years, the traffic circle downtown.) The field was south, the goals were marked by stones, placed about 30 feet apart in a circle extending back to the Ò ketcher.Ó The umpire, with a stick and knife in hand, recorded the Ò insÓ made, and when the game was concluded the defeated party paid the wager in egg cider, which was drank sitting on the ground. No complaints were made because the streets were occupied as the merchants would both play in the game and Ò tend store.Ó Any customer had to wait until the end of the game to be waited upon by the merchant.
Travelers arrived by stagecoach
Visitors headed for Lake George came by stage from Saratoga, stopping at the tavern for dinner. When the stage reached its destination, it was immediately surrounded by bright youngsters, eager to show the visitors (for a fee) the caverns, the Ò catamount on the rockÓ and the Ò big treeÓ on the opposite bank of the river where Hawkeye shot the Indian, as related by the novelist, James Fenimore Cooper in his book, The Last of the Mohicans. The very spot where he planted his foot to take aim at the unfortunate Indian was minutely described so that the visitor, for a six-pence of ready money would know it all. In the years to come, many of the businessmen acquired great wealth as the opportunities for advancement for a ambitious man in this virgin area were numerous. This is actually only the beginning of the story because as the 20th entury stretches before us, Glens Falls can surely look forward to even a bigger and better future.

Letters to the Editor
It’s tough for wage earners to survive
Elder care a key issue To the Editor:
To the Editor: An Athol man who recently wrote a letter-to-the-editor asked, Ò Is it better to have someone working and earning their own way, or is it better to have them dependent on the government for their income?Ó and cited some fantastical statistic with no source. No one would disagree itÕ s better to have someone working and earning his or her own way. But no one with any real-world experience would deny that sometimes bad things happen to hard-working people, especially in a country that lavishes huge welfare subsidies on big corporations but begrudges miniscule ones ($4 per day for SNAP recipients) to people who work for a living but have no good-old-boy connections. The letter that appeared immediately below the Athol manÕ s letter in the area daily illustrates this perfectly. A Glens Falls man noted General ElectricÕ s betrayal of its hardworking employees in Fort Edward. The soon-to-be unemployed from GE are men and women whoÕ ve spent their whole lives working hard and contributing to the system. The man from Athol might begrudge these working people a small part of the unemployment or SNAP benefits they’ve spent years or decades paying into, but I donÕ t. A quarter of all workers Ñ and the majority of those working at fast-food restaurants Ñ receive some sort of public assistance because of the scandalously low minimum wage. All are people who work. Fifty years ago, a person could have a job for life, live comfortably on those wages and retire on a generous pension. Maybe thatÕ s still true in utopia Athol. But in most of America, millions work hard and still canÕ t make ends meet. The American dream is being betrayed, and some have the audacity to blame those suffering most from that betrayal. If the percentage of people receiving public assistance is indeed as high as the man from Athol claims, this is why. Brian Farenell Glens Falls
Our communities are experiencing a growing percentage of older residents who are becoming increasingly savvy when it comes to health care decisions. As we all age, we will seek out a mix of traditional and new services to help support the lifestyle we choose. Recognizing this, the state is directing resources to identify and create the new services necessary to balance the segment of our health care system that has become overly reliant on providing elder care in an institutional setting. Traditionally our region and others have turned to nursing home care for people who are perceived as no longer able to live on their own, or arenÕ t quite ready to go home after hospitalization following surgery or a major health event. The care provided in our nursing homes is second to none, however, as people remain healthier and live longer, the traditional nursing home is no longer viewed as the preferred setting. Recently, Gov. Andrew Cuomo and state Health Commissioner Dr. Nirav Shah announced a $7.1 million grant award through the Vital Access/Safety Net Provider Program (VAP) to the Blue Line Group. The Blue Line Group is a partnership of the only four non-public, not-for-profit nursing homes in the 6-million acre Adirondack Park: Adirondack Tri-County in North Creek, Heritage Commons in Ticonderoga, Mercy Living Center in Tupper Lake and Uihlein Living Center in Lake Placid. Eight months ago, The Blue Line Group embarked on a journey to serve as a convener of new ideas and partnerships that will address and resolve the well documented challenges threatening the viability of long term care services in our region. In the short-term, the Vital Access Provider funds secured by Blue Line Group will help address the fiscal distress its nursing homes have endured following years of Medicaid reimbursements that fell short of the actual cost of care. By providing financial stability, Blue Line Group partners will be better positioned to proactively focus on long-term solutions by aligning business strategies and care coordination to meet the changing health care needs of our region. These long term solutions will identify innovative economies of scale, centralized purchasing, new services for seniors and other models of care to serve a diverse and growing segment of the population. The Adirondack region is expected to see a 23 percent increase in persons aged 65 and older between 2010 and 2020, a rate that is 15 percent greater than Upstate New York as a whole. According to a 2009 regional assessment, if current population trends continue in the next twenty years, the Adirondacks will rival FloridaÕ s west coast with the oldest population in America.
This growing group does not see themselves as purely needing the services of a skilled long term care setting, but rather services that facilitate wellness to return home or an environment with supportive living services. These services may include, but are not limited to adult day care, licensed home care, physical rehabilitation or nutritional counseling. The Blue Line Group was formed on the fundamental premise our regionÕ s nursing homes face a shared set of challenges that can be overcome by working together. The ultimate goal is to ensure those who choose to live a long and full life in the Adirondacks have access to a mix of traditional and new community based alternatives delivered by a financially stable system and well-trained workforce. We are grateful to Gov. Cuomo and Commissioner Dr. Shah for showing their support and recognizing we need to proactively position our collective organizations to meet the health care needs of our community.

WCS wrestlers capture crown in Granville tourney GRANVILLE Ñ Warrensburg High School wrestlers defeated 15 other teams from 15 other schools to win the championship of Granville High SchoolÕ s 2013 Ken Harrison Memorial Lions Wrestling Tournament held Dec. 21. Warrensburg wrestling coach Mark Trapasso said he was pleased with the achievement Ñ He said his 2013-14 team was surpassing local wrestling fansÕ early-season expectations. Ò We wrestled well Ñ We won the matches we were supposed to win,Ó he said. Ò The wrestlers have a real nice chemistry going on this year Ñ theyÕ re working hard.Ó Warrensburg didnÕ t just win the tournament, they crushed the opposition. The team won with 201 points, 61 points more than the runner-up, Bellows Falls-Hartford. Trapasso said that the Granville tournament included some outstanding individual wrestlers, including several Vermont state champions. Nine teams from Vermont and seven from New York State competed in the day-long tournament in which wrestlers competed in up to five matches. Competing in the tournament were Cambridge, South Glens Falls, Whitehall-Fort Ann, Averill Park, LaSalle, Granville and Warrensburg from New York, and Middlebury, Bellows FallsHartford, Burr & Burton, Harwood-Rutland, Mill River, Milton, Otter Valley, Vergennes, and Fair Haven from Vermont. Burgher wrestlers winning first place championships were Austin West at 120 pounds, Nick Nedelcu at 126, Denver Berry at 132 and Dan Ackley at 195. Placing second in the tournament were Dan Monthony at 106 pounds, Lane Oehler at 145, and Blake Vaisey at 285. Wil Yarmowich at 152 pounds lost his first match, but won the next four to place third — a difficult feat, considering that the champions wrestle only three to four matches. Trevor Baker placed fourth in the 170-pound weight class. In the finals, Austin West pinned Jason Ashline of Whitehall in a mere 46 seconds with a quick leg-attack takedown, Trapasso said. Ò West is wrestling tough against everybody at this point,Ó he said. Nick Nedelcu won a tough close-scoring final match as the concluding seconds were ticking off by pinning Matt DeVille of South Glens Falls in 5 minutes, 20 seconds. Two other Burgher wrestlers won their first tournaments of their respective careers: Denver Berry and Dan Ackley. With 30 seconds in his final match left and with his competitor on top, Berry fought back and scored an escape for a 1-0 decision over Joe Toth of Averill Park. Only 40 seconds into his finals match, Ackley pinned Aaron Borkowski of Rutland by whipping him to the mat with a headlock, Trapasso said. Ò Recently, Ackley is letting his athleticism take over,Ó Trapasso said. “The tournament win was a good confidence builder.” Dan Monthony won his preliminary matches but was pinned

in finals by South Glens Falls’ Anthony Sgorrano who is reputed to be quite talented. Lane Oehler lost by technical fall in the finals to 2013 Vermont State Champion Nolan Viens Bellows Falls. Blake Vaisey was pinned in the finals by Dwayne Nadeau of Granville. Team results were as follows: first place- Warrensburg, 201 points, second- Bellows Falls-Hartford, 140 points; third- Averill Park, 135 points; fourth- Granville, 119 points; fifth- South Glens Falls, 118&1/2 points; sixth- Whitehall-Fort Ann, 104; seventh: Middlebury, 99; eighth- Mill River, 68; ninth- Vergennes, 67; 10th- La Salle, 55; 11th- Rutland, 50&1/2; 12th- Otter Valley, 41; 13th- Cambridge, 26; 14th- Milton, 17; 15th- Fair Haven, 13; and 16th- Burr & Burton, 12. Trapasso said his team was emboldened by their tournament win. He said the wrestlers are looking forward to the remainder of the season Ñ despite the fact the area wrestling league is quite tough, evidenced by the Lake George/Hadley-Luzerne team winning the Glens Falls tournament recently by 100 points and Salem putting eight wrestlers into the finals of the recent Hudson Falls tournament. Trapasso said the Burghers were energized by the Granville tournament victory. Ò WeÕ re thrilled,Ó he said. Ò WeÕ ll be bringing the trophy into the wrestling room Monday for a five-minute gloat session — then itÕ s back to business. WeÕ re continuing to pursue the challenge of getting better every week.Ó Next up for the Burghers is the Schenectady County Duals Meet on Saturday Dec. 28 at Niskayuna High School, featuring six teams: Mohonasen, Schenectady, Niskayuna, Duanesburg, Fonda-Fultonville and Warrensburg.

highly successful this year. At a meeting of the Alliance held Dec. 13, it was suggested that the group organize a Christmas parade and townwide caroling Ñ plus offer holiday-themed shows and movies in the Carol Theatre to accompany the existing popular activities. Cindy Mead of the Alliance said the concepts discussed were promising. Ò All ideas will be given thorough consideration,Ó she said. The 2013 Taste of the Tri-Lakes, held Dec. 3 in conjunction with the Chestertown Rotary ClubÕ s Memory Tree lighting event, was a great success, area entrepreneurs reported. The event’s sampling of fine specialty dishes provided by area restaurants netted $1,029 for the Alliance. Appreciation was expressed to all the restaurants who participated, the Scout troops, the Chestertown Rotary, Circle B Ranch for providing horse-drawn wagon rides, to Stone Bridge & Caves for providing sÕ mores and thanks also to the various musical groups who entertained. The event had a robust turnout, with a crowd sharing memories of people important in their lives as well as caroling, while others sampled gourmet food. The local Rotary Club donated $300 to the Alliance to boost their extensive lineup of community events they have launched with remarkable success during the last 18 months or so.
Plans advance for new local craft festival
The concept of holding a craft festival in Chestertown the day after Thanksgiving beginning in 2014 has gained some traction. Fred Holman of the Art in Chestertown Gallery and the North Country Arts Center will be heading a committee Ñ along with Jesika Beckler, Linda Muench and Mary Jane Dower Ñ to organize the craft show and sale. Initial plans call for local crafters Ñ including several who were vendors in the Chestertown Farmers Market Ñ to be set up throughout town and in various establishments demonstrating their talents and selling their wares. Anyone seeking information on this holiday craft market may contact Fred at 803-4034.
Outhouse racers, get ready!
The Brant Lake Winter Carnival, which was incredibly popular in its debut edition last year, is scheduled for Saturday Feb. 8. It has been noted that the Carnival’s outhouse races in its first year had more entrants and lively action than its famed counterpart in Lake George had in its second decade. Taverns, businesses, clubs and families are urged to prepare their outhouses now, well in advance of the winter carnival. This yearÕ s event requires pre-registration so the Alliance can plan a race schedule in advance. Horicon Fire Department members have been invited to play snowshoe softball again Ñ as they did in 2013, with the firefighters competing against the North Warren High School softball team. Other groups interested are urged to contact an Alliance member if they too seek to participate. Community groups and businesses are also urged to develop plans for either floats or marching units for the 2014 North Warren St. PatrickÕ s Day Parade, scheduled for March 8 in Ches-
Participants in the 2013 Brant Lake Winter Carnival try their hand at the sport of curling. In its debut year, the Winter Carnival featured outhouse races, snowshoe softball, broomball and flag hockey competition, snow-sculpting, Frisbee golf, an ice-fishing tournament, ice bowling and an expo of vintage snowmobiles. Remarkably popular in its debut year, plans are proceeding for the 2014 edition, set for Feb. 8. Organized by the Tri-Lakes Business Alliance, the event attracted more than 400 people.

tertown. Another upcoming local event is the Northern Warren Trailblazers Snowmobile Poker Run, set for Feb. 2. It was noted that the fourth annual Bob Ò WimpyÓ Whitford Ice Fishing Tournament is to be held from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 25 on Brant Lake. The cost of the tournament is $20, and proceeds go towards a scholarship in WhitfordÕ s name. For details, contact Keith Wilkinson at 588-5136.
promotion committee that also has parallel aims. Area attractions, eateries and lodging accommodations are collaborating on drafting itineraries and group packages to draw visitors to northern Warren County to our area and the many attractions and activities, including Stone Bridge & Caves, the Railroads on Parade model train expo, plus golf, fishing, boating, and horseback riding.
Also discussed was the ongoing effort to erect informational signs on state Rtes. 8 and 9, as local business leaders in northern Warren County have said better signage is needed to direct motorists on the Northway to available local services. It was decided to recruit more support for additional informational signs. Don Butler, a founder of the Alliance, volunteered to seek the support of the Greater Warrensburg Business Alliance and the North Creek alliance, while Barb Thomas will be seeking to convince the area chambers of commerce to get involved.
It was noted that Natural Stone Bridge & Caves of Pottersville is holding a free Community Day on Saturday, Jan. 4, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. During this event, residents of Warren and Essex counties are welcome to explore their 12+miles of groomed trails at no charge. Bonfires and the hospitality of
Signs sought to boost local commerce
Community Day at Stone Bridge & Caves
the Beckler Family should make this an enjoyable day, Alliance members noted. Stone Bridge has snowshoes to rent for $5 for those that need them.
Master Plan sought to boost commerce
Another topic of discussion at the Alliance meeting was the ongoing effort to encourage more businesses to open up and flourish in downtown Chestertown. Alliance members suggested that a town Master Plan would be helpful in this regard, and a consensus was reached to lobby the town board to develop a Master Plan and pursue other business-friendly measures. The next meeting of the Tri-Lakes Business Alliance is set for 9 a.m. Friday, Dec. 27 at the Panther Mountain Inn.
Alliance to promote group tours
It was noted at the meeting that the Town of Chester is now seeking volunteers to serve on the Chestertown Recreation Strategy Advisory Group. Greg Beckler will volunteer as a representative from the Tri-Lakes Business Alliance as the group shares objectives with the new committee. Also, Beckler is heading up the AllianceÕ s group tour

14 - Adirondack Journal
Toss the kids into the snow!
s a youngster growing up in the Adirondacks, I learned early on how to enjoy the winter and itÕ s many offerings, which ranged from snowball fights to snow forts, sledding, snowshoeing, skiing and skating I learned to embrace the winter at a young age, and how to take advantage of the recreational opportunities it offers. In fact, until recently, IÕ d nearly forgotten about the many evenings spent atop the town hill tossing snowballs at passing cars. My memory was jogged just the other night, when a group of hooligans peppered my car with snowballs as I drove past the former scene of my crimes. Adirondack winters can be the most extensive of all seasons, with snow storms typically arriving by October and the last of the snowpack hanging around until early May. If a person doesnÕ t know how to enjoy winter sports activities, it can become the cruelest of all the seasons, and up north, there is simply no way to avoid it. In fact, it is a key component the Adirondack culture. Most local kids know how to jump start a car by the age of 10 and by then, theyÕ ve already been shoveling sidewalks for at least ta couple of years. Around here, thereÕ s more money to be made shoveling snow than in mowing lawns. Over the years, IÕ ve had the opportunity to introduce many guests to the joys of winter travel; but my greatest pleasure was derived in the process of introducing my own children to the joys of the season. They ski, skate, play hockey and both spent time with the luge and bobsled.
IÕ ve often been asked whatÕ s the most appropriate age to start a child on skis, snowshoes or skates. My standard response is, Ò As soon as itÕ s comfortable for both you and the kids!Ó Comfortable is the key word. Kids are high energy and can be easily entertained with minimum equipment and minimal instruction. However, the main focus is having fun for everyone involved. Skis, skates or snowshoes are really winterÕ s toys. Sleds are a helpful tool for when the kids get tired. Kids have a lower center of gravity, and if they fall the donÕ t have far to go. In fact, most kids like to fall in the snow, provided they are dressed properly. My children have been on skis and skates from an early age. They began with boot binding skis, the type which allowed them to wear warm winter boots. They first learned how to slide, shuffle, fall and get up on the living room carpet. Skiing is comfortable indoors as itÕ s warm, thereÕ s no deep powder, no cold mittens, no runny noses and it really generates great enthusiasm for getting outdoors. When they finally advance to real snow, it’s important to remember they have short attention spans and mostly, they just want to have fun. DonÕ t exceed their tolerance level, and try to stop while they still want more. Be sure to pay attention to the weather and donÕ t attempt outings in bitter cold or windy conditions. Be sure to dress kids accordingly and keep the lessons to a minimum. It is helpful to have a hill nearby, but not too steep. Even if they canÕ t kick and glide; they will want the skis to slide. Strive to make the experience exciting and entertaining for them, and be sure to quit before they are bored or get too cold, and always keep a sled handy, just in case! ItÕ s has to be fun, or itÕ s done. Keep some hot chocolate handy. If you want to instill a child with the desire to pursue the activity, whether skiing, snowshoeing or skating; be certain it is on their terms. Make their winter outings exciting and adventurous, and set simple yet achievable goals with a reward in mind. We took a lot of home videos which are much easier to accomplish today than they were 15 or 20 years ago. Videos are great fun for them to watch their progress on TV, and itÕ s easier for parents to point out helpful techniques. Kids will strive to succeed if their parents are enthusiastic and involved. Always quit the activity while you are ahead, and leave them
December 28, 2013 wanting more, rather than wishing they could quit. Keep in mind that whatever the activity, it needs be for their satisfaction not yours! A ski lesson that degenerates into a snowball fight is still good fun; even if it signals the end of the lesson. I believe that skating is best accomplished first in an arena and similar to alpine skiing; it helps to have professional instruction. It is always better to have children learn these skills along with someone their own age and ability. Positive reinforcement brings better results than negatives, so be sure to encourage rather than criticize. You can lead by example, but just go at a slower pace. Nordic skiing and snowshoeing lessons can easily be handled by most parents. For either activity, I find it best to set groomed tracks appropriate to the width of the childÕ s stride. Ski or snowshoe tracks that are comfortable for an adult may be too wide for a small child to straddle and can cause them to be off balance. As children progress in skill, endurance and enthusiasm, it will soon be time to graduate from the backyard to a local nordic ski center. Be sure to upgrade their equipment appropriately since nothing hampers their development more than a pair of ski boots or skates that are too tight or skis that are too small. When a child attains the skills necessary to enjoy the winter environment, their opportunities for positive recreational experiences are virtually unlimited. Parents and children will develop commonality and a set of shared skills that will result in an indelible recreational bond. According to recent reports, there are currently more people enjoying winter sports today than ever before. This is likely due to the advances in clothing, the availability of lighter and easier to use equipment, and a progressive and proactive winter sports industry. It is important to realize that studies indicate the majority of lifelong skiers began skiing by the time they were in the 4th grade. The research didnÕ t stop with just winter sports. Further studies indicate the majority of lifelong outdoor travelers were initiated to outdoor sports at a similarly early age, typically by their father, an Uncle or a close family friend. The lack of structured entertainment centers such as movie theaters, social centers or YMCAÕ s in most Adirondack communities, should not be considered a negative factor; especially if parents and community leaders make the effort to provide similarly enjoyable positive recreational opportunities. The community of Tupper Lake has long been a leader in this regard, with their continuing volunteer efforts to reopen Big Tupper Ski Area, and to develop a new, outdoor municipal skating rink. These new developments follow the successful effort to upgrade their local movie theater and bring it into the digital age. There is more to be done, but itÕ s obvious the community is well on the way. Joe Hackett is a guide and sportsman residing in Ray Brook. Contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.

said. Ò And New York State hosts more ski areas than any other state in the nation.Ó Vanselow said that Dr. Dan OÕ Keefe, who has written two books on the history of skiing in North Creek, has been behind the idea of establishing a ski museum in the remote, commerce-challenged hamlet. “Over the years, there have been so many ‘firsts’ in the ski industry occurring in North Creek Ñ and we can build on that,Ó Vanselow said, adding that perhaps Little could obtain some state funds to bankroll the project. The ski museum could draw visitors to North Creek and provide a substantial boost to North Creek businesses, he said. Ò A state ski industry museum could give train passengers who arrive in town something extra to do when they get here,Ó he said, noting that only about half of the passengers traveling on the Saratoga-North Creek Railway during the winter come to North Creek to ski Ñ and the existing businesses have been Ò strugglingÓ to provide rail patrons with activities. Ò The ski museum could be a major attraction,Ó he said. Vanselow continued that the museum could be constructed on town-owned property near the railway depot, in the town Riverfront Park area or be housed in an existing building. Ò The committee would be working to integrate it into the streetscape,Ó he said. A group of local community and business leaders Ñ plus some area politicians Ñ are to meet Jan. 6 to discuss the concept, Vanselow said. A time and location for the meeting are yet to be determined.

Winter feeding deer, do it right and legal!
unting season is nearly over and Whitetail Deer populations have been reduced to DEC biologistÕ s standards, meeting habitat and carrying capacities in wildlife management units. Hunting is just one of the necessary components of wildlife management. With winter setting in early this year, habitat is critical for the remaining wildlife. Shelter is important to protect animals from the elements, but more importantly FOOD becomes the primary concern. Just like a wood stove needs to be fed wood to produce heat, an animal or human needs carbohydrates to produce enough energy to make it through a cold night, let alone a long winter. Long, cold, windy winters, take a toll on wildlife. Starvation is By Rich Redman no way of living! Spring, summer and fall foods are easy to get and plentiful. The winter foods are critical for wildlife to make it through to another year. So with the winter winds starting to blow, the thermometer dropping to zero and snow levels starting to climb, what can we do to help our wildlife survive this winter? Think WINTER food! So how do you supply quality winter food? Many folks will say you canÕ t feed deer in the winter, itÕ s against the law. Yes, you are right; you canÕ t bring in bags of corn, grain, carrots or apples to supplement natural food sources. But you can grow winter feed and leave it for wildlife! If you hunt on farmland, work with the farm owner. Buy them some bags of corn or other crop seeds to plant in field corners or wet spots so they can leave the un-harvested crops for wildlife. Deer will paw through the snow for corn, turnips, pumpkins, and other crops left after harvest. Help the farm owner seed cover crops, ditches and woods roads with a quick rye cover to provide some winter food. Farmers feed all of us, so we need to help them feed wildlife! Growing and leaving un-harvested winter food is not illegal, but bringing in supplemental feed like corn, apples and sweet feed grain mixes are. New York State DEC Environmental Law reads as follows; Part 189 of Title 6 of the Codes, Rules and Regulations of the State of New York was last amended on July 28, 2010. Part of this rule restricts the feeding of deer and moose. In New York, it is illegal to feed deer and moose by putting out any material that attracts them to feed. There are five exceptions to the rule: 1. Agricultural crops including wildlife food plots. 2. Distribution of food to livestock.
3. Distribution of food to captive deer and elk. 4. Cutting of trees and brush. 5. Scientific research, wildlife damage abatement, and wildlife population reduction programs, but only under a permit issued by DEC. Chronic Wasting Not only the Deer benefit from your wildlife Disease is the big management program. culprit that fueled Photo by Rich Redman the no deer feeding law. Cutting of trees and brush for wildlife habitat improvement is not illegal, but actually encouraged. Forest and wildlife management are synonymous! The chain saw is the tool of choice when it comes to wildlife management. By opening up areas around apple trees, pruning off dead and dying branches and adding some fertilizer in the spring, you can take an old dying, sunlight starved apple and turn it into a healthy apple producing wildlife feeding machine! The branches left can be used to build brush piles for rabbits and the young tender stems will be nipped by deer when feeding. You wonÕ t be wasting anything. Sunlight hitting the ground around the apple trees in spring will stimulate new grass and forb growth that wildlife can feed on. Create openings in the woodlot for browse to grow in. Loggers know, the sound of a chainsaw is like a dinner bell to a deer. When trees are harvested for saw logs, the tops are left in the woods, supplying browse for deer and grouse. As a small forest owner what you can do is to start managing your woodlot. Any disturbed areas along woods roads or ditches should be seeded down to a grass or legume mix. Check with your local seed dealers, there are some really neat wildlife seed mixes that provide soil protection and dynamite wildlife food plots, including plants for pollinator species. Wildlife management if done with forethought is multi-tasking at its finest! If winter deer feeding is your goal, take a look at the following chart and try to manage your vegetation for the foods that deer prefer. Winter Deer Foods Chart taken from NYS DEC Website Winter Food Chart The following is a partial listing of tree and shrub species that are eaten by deer in the winter, arranged in order of quality and preference. This listing is based on thousands of observations in deer wintering areas over many years from all parts of New York State. Preferred or Best Liked: Cedar, white or arborvitae Yew Apple Sassafras Mountain maple Maples* Wintergreen Witch hobble
December 28, 2013 Flowering dogwood Basswood Second Choice Elderberry Mountain ash Highbush blueberry Silky dogwood Honeysuckle Cucumber tree Wild raisin Readily Eaten White ash Oaks* Yellow birch American chestnut Witch hazel Choke cherry Black walnut Lowbush blueberry Black ash Wild grape Leatherwood Starvation or Poor Food Scotch pine** White pine** Beech Mountain laurel** Gray birch Musclewood (Blue beech) Spruces Black locust Red cedar Raspberry and blackberry Pin cherry Tamarack Buckthorn
Alternate leaved dogwood Staghorn sumac Red berried elder Highbush cranberry Willow* Red osier dogwood Nannyberry Hemlock Arbutus Sugar maple Black birch Hickory Black cherry Spicebush Elm Shadbush, Winterberry Butternut Hazelnut Bush honeysuckle
Pitch pine** Red pine** Aspen or poplar Rhododendron** Paper birch Ironwood (Hop hornbeam) Alder Grey-stemmed dogwood Balsam** Sweet fern Sheep laurel Gooseberry (current)* Hawthorn
*There is considerable difference in palatability and preference of the different species of this genus. Cutting out firewood along with general forest management practices will maintain a healthy woodlot, provide wildlife habitat, income and supply a renewable source of energy for heating your home or shop. Thinning out both the woods and the wildlife will provide fuel for both our stove and our bodies, fuel that is naturally grown and harvested from our lands. With sound forest and wildlife management practices you not only supply feed for deer, but you do it the right and legal way. So grab that saw and get to work! Wildlife needs us, as much as we need them! Rich Redman is a retired District Conservationist for the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service and an avid outdoorsman.

Gov. Cuomo – Support New York’s Family Caregivers. Right now, New York State fails to provide adequate support to the millions of family caregivers that allow seniors to live independently in their homes. Without the help of these unpaid caregivers, many seniors would likely be placed in costly, taxpayer-funded institutions like nursing homes. But by providing training and support, we can give family caregivers the resources they need to help seniors live where they want—at home. Our seniors deserve better than being forced from their homes and into institutions that cost taxpayers a bundle.
Call 1-888-374-2742 to urge Governor Cuomo to provide support for caregivers in next year’s state budget.
