thom@denpubs.com LAKE GEORGE — Choking back tears, Lake George Mayor Blais spoke to 35 or so village employees about Sewer Plant Superintendent Reggie Burlingame and his dedication during decades of work for the village. The gathering was to rededicate the road to the sewer plant as “Burlingame Boulevard” in his honor. “Through thick or thin, day or night, he was there for us,” Blais said of Burlingame as village Superintendent of Public Works Dave Harrington unveiled the new road sign. “His first priority was always to protect the lake and the interests of local citizens.” Burlingame reacted to Blais’ words with a broad smile and sparkling eyes. “It’s so great to work with the village trustees and all the employees,” he said. “They know they live in the most beautiful place in New York state.” Burlingame presided over the sewer plant during the

Warrensburg now seeks solar power By Thom Randall thom@denpubs.com WARRENSBURG — Inspired by neighboring Town of Chester ’s commitment to harness the energy of the

sun, Warrensburg town government is now pursuing solar power to energize their various facilities. Kevin Geraghty said this week that he was meeting soon with various solar engineering firms to first determine the town of Warrensburg’s energy

needs and then devise applicable solarpower solutions. He said that the town’s sewer lagoon off Rte. 418 was a top priority for a solar installation. Also to be evaluated for solar power will be the town hall and Senior Center — both on Main St.,

The new bridge was hailed by many as not only a convenience but a boost to local enterprises on River St.

Business changes

A look at 2011 events

WCS Dance Marathon Warrensburg High School held its first Dance Marathon Jan. 19, and it was a fun evening as well as raising $7,500 for various charities, including the North Country Hardship Fund, High Peaks Hospice, Cindy’s Comfort Camp, Mito Hope & Help, and the Ben Osborne Memorial Fund. On Jan. 14 this coming year, the second annual dance marathon will take place. The committee is now selecting recipients as requests are received. To make a cash donation, readers may send checks to the school.

Warrensburg School District pressures The Warrensburg Central School District faced a financial squeeze, as substantial state aid reductions prompted budget cuts locally. Ini-

tially, at risk were several critical instructional positions serving students with special needs, as well as Junior Varsity sports and the summer school program. For the first time since the new school was built more than 15 years ago, school board members and local citizens talked about consolidating all the local schools on one campus. Most of the cuts were scuttled, but the budget squeeze continues for 2012. This year also brought us the surprise resignation of school board member James Carrion, prompting a special election in October, with Diane Angell of Thurman defeating Patrick Powers for the seat. Out of about 4,000 registered voters, only 551 turned out to cast ballots.

Milton Ave. Bridge The new Milton Avenue Bridge, a vital link between Western Warrensburg and Thurman was opened to the public in mid-July. The sturdy steel-truss bridge, designed to resemble historic spans, carries two lanes across the Schroon River rather than one as did its predecessor — the Woolen Mill bridge, erected in the late 1800s. The former span was closed down in April 1998 due to safety concerns.

Concluding a lengthy, passionate debate over whether the store would intrude into a historic neighborhood, a modern spacious Stewart’s Shop convenience store opened on Stewart Farrar Avenue, relocated from lower Main St. The company’s plans to build their new store prompted competing Cumberland Farms to rebuild their own shop, one block south on Main St., nearly doubling its size in the process. New Way Lunch opened a new short-order restaurant on Main St. in Warrensburg next to the former Stewart's. They bought the historic Potter ’s Diner and totally renovated it as a new outlet for their signature entree, hot dogs smothered in meat sauce and onions. From the first day forward, the eatery has enjoyed substantial popularity. Also opening this year was Rebecca’s Florist & Country Store on lower Main St., featuring her imaginative creations in home decor. The landmark local salon Heidi’s Clip Joint moved downstreet into a spacious new shop, and DeeDee Ackley Roach and Ruth Kenyon — formerly with Heidi’s — opened up the Cutting Crew in the Clip Joint’s longtime location downtown. The Smoke Shop opened where Posies flower shop

Events enjoy success Chilly weather and intermittent rain didn’t deter crowds from attending the annual World’s Largest Garage Sale the first weekend in October. Vendors who sold soup, chili and hot chocolate did quite well, and the 250 or so other concessions fared well too, as did the homeowners through town who held yard and garage sales. Later in October, the second annual Cancer Sucks Walk held by the Nemec family and friends to honor the late George Nemec netted $3,500 in donations to the Cancer Center at Glens Falls Hospital. On Oct. 8, an event titled “Historical Hauntings — Ghosts of Warrensburg Tour” was conducted by Maria Ligon and Sally Feihel, who talked of suspected paranormal activity at various local sites. Destinations for the well-attended tour of buildings included the Warrensburgh Museum of Local History, Grace’s Restaurant, Emerson House Bed and Breakfast and the Warrensburg Senior Center.

progress in town as well as ending the perk of free health insurance for town board members who served for 10 years or more. Markey and Ackley can be assured that Warrensburg residents appreciate their service through many years. The new council members will be sworn in at 6 p.m. Jan. 3 during the town’s annual organizational meeting.

and the Warrensburg Fruit market used to operate on Main St. In recent weeks, Sarah Monroe opened a cafe/bicycle shop and a beauty salon at 3897 Main St. in the former Maltbie Chrysler building on upper Main St. The latter is named Groom Salon, and the other dual enterprise, called Grind ‘N Gears, offers organic gourmet coffee and sandwiches with healthy ingredients. The continuing development of new stores offers good news for the community, as the trend indicates that local commerce is on the upswing. Earlier this year, a development group unveiled plans to host a supermarket just south of Oscar ’s Smoke House, but apparently these plans are in limbo as plans have advanced to locate a new Price Chopper just south of Warrensburg at Northway Exit 23. These plans have local officials worried about the fate of Grand Union, which has been a busy commercial focus in town. Warrensburg officials are concerned about the effect on the local economy if Grand Union were to depart, leaving an empty shopette.

held at Grace’s Restaurant was on Oct. 23 when the local landmark hosted the Warrensburg Historical Society’s annual Dinner with the Dead event, featuring local actors portraying citizens prominent in the town’s history. Several of the many attending expressed sorrow over the news that Grace's Restaurant was closing, likely not for just the season, but permanently. This historic estate, in a bygone era a home to a one of the community’s notables, is now up for sale. The Warrensburg Museum of Local History had a banner year with record attendance — and the most extensive roster of exhibits ever. Supplementing the museum’s display of ongoing artifacts and photos, the special exhibits included local stock car racing, local sports and recreation, local doll collections, and a selection of handmade quilts.

Train stations decorated to greet visitors RIPARIUS — Local youth and adults collaborated with the Saratoga & North Creek Railway recently to decorate train stations with festive lights to greet the visitors riding the snow trains which begin their runs Friday, Dec. 30. The effort was part of the First Wilderness Heritage Corridor Project coordinated by Pam Morin of the Warren County Planning Department. With the help of citizens along the “rail trail,” each station or platform is decorated in different themes. The Hadley and Riparius platforms are decorated in a manner that expresses “Thank You” to U.S. soldiers serving overseas, Morin said this week. At the historic Riparius Station, the Town of Chester Parks and Recreation crew led by John West installed holiday lights that outline the building’s roof. The lights are complemented by 20 red-ribboned wreaths. The lights, wreaths and a Christmas tree from Pereau’s Tree Farm on Starbuck Hill in Chestertown were donated by individuals

and businesses of the North Warren Chamber of Commerce. Decorating the tree were members of Boy Scout Troop 30 in Chestertown. The scouts were assisted by American Legion Post 964 official Joe Slattery, of Chestertown, who is a troop volunteer. Scouts that took part in the decorating include Will Jennings, Jacob Smit, Dylan Baker, Joey Foley, Trey Redmond and Ethan Fiorino. The “Welcome Home Soldier” theme is meant to be a gesture of appreciation for service men and women who have served and to those who are still active, Morin said. The names of soldiers from the North Warren area who’ve served in Iraq and Afghanistan were inscribed on tree ornaments and placed on a tree at the Riparius station. Anyone wishing to place additional ornaments bearing other soldiers’ names may do so, Morin said. The North Country Ski and Snow Train continues through March. More train information is available at www.sncrr.com.

Snowmobilers get new privilege in Lake George By Thom Randall thom@denpubs.com LAKE GEORGE — In the interest of boosting tourism in downtown Lake George, the village board recently voted to allow public snowmobile parking during the winter months on the former Gaslight Village property — the festival area of the West Brook Environmental Park. At the board’s special meeting held Dec. 19, Mayor Robert Blais said that last winter a considerable number of snowmobiles had been parking at various places substantial distances from downtown, and allowing parking in the festival area would encourage sled riders to patronize village businesses. The parking approval includes allowing snowmobile trailers. Blais said that representatives of area snowmobile clubs had reported that the outlying sled parking areas were routinely full. Also, the board approved reimbursement of the Warren County Department of Public Works for materials and labor for improvements to the north parcel of the West Brook lands for a parking lot. Plus, they voted to authorize Elan Planning and Design of Saratoga Springs to prepare grant applications relating to the festival space. The board voted to turn over historic photographs, posters, and leaflets found during the demolition of Gaslight Village buildings to the Warren County Historical Society — with the assurance that the local historians have first privileges to the materials. Blais said the county Historical Society is planning a dis-

Family Fun Night

On a personal note Many callers ask me to put in a big Thank You to the folks who helped out with the Thurman Christmas Basket program, baking food items, as well as assembling and delivering the lovely Christmas baskets of food and gifts that many local families received on Dec. 8 — thank you all! Visiting at Paula and Russ Hubert’s home on Combs Road Home for a festive family gathering over the Christmas holidays were their daughter and family, Holly, Lee and their children Emma and Matt of Orchard Park, N.Y. Happy Birthday wishes go out Dec. 31 to Darrin Springer and Nancy Simkins; on Jan. 1 to Bonnie Cameron, Clarence Roberts and Mark Kuklinski Jr.; to Sam Millington and Brigid Kelly on Jan. 2; to Holly Haskell and Marjorie Rocker on Jan. 4, and to Stuart Baker and Bonnie Monroe on Jan. 6. A Happy Anniversary wish goes out to Georgia and Ricky Kenyon on Jan. 1. Happy New Year everyone, and thanks for the cards. I only sent to the friends who have moved far away but I do wish you all only the best for the holidays. Get Well wishes go out to: Jim Desourdy, Cliff Dureau, Ronnie Dibble, June Germain, and to all others who are feeling poorly over the holidays.

Over the fence Christmas Carolers from Thurman Baptist Church went out once again on Dec. 18 and sang at the Tri-County Nursing Home in North Creek. They have indeed brought joy to many folks in the holiday season throughout the community. Submit your name if you seek to become a member of the Thurman Planning Board, a volunteer for the town Youth Commissions to plan activities, a driver for the Meals on Wheels program. Call the town hall at 623-9649 for instructions on who to get in touch with. This contact number is also good for anyone who would like to start a Welcome Wagon program or to help neighbors when they are in need. To become a volunteer with the all-important Thurman Emergency Squad, call 623-9014. When we used to mention that we had lived in Thurman — or were going to our camp or to climb Crane Mountain — people from Manhattan all the way to Lake George used to ask the same question, “Where is Thurman? I’ve never heard of it.” But now everyone seems to have heard of us from newspapers, the Internet, television, and through word of mouth. So although we are now renowned one way or another, we are still not on many state road maps! There is a food pantry at the Town Hall so don’t let your family go hungry.

Families from the community with children age 5 to 11 years old are invited to a free evening of activities at the Glen Street YMCA on Friday, Jan. 6 from 7 to 9 p.m. There will be crafts, games, an open gym and swimming. Teen Night is also planned for safe and fun activities on a Saturday night for students in grades 6 through 8 — at least 11 years old and younger than 15. The free event, including a variety of activities including swimming, is to be held Saturday Jan. 7 from 7:30 to 10 p.m.

Historical society The John Thurman Historical Society will not hold meetings in January, February and March. This break should give everyone time to remember some things that went on in yester year and to write some notes down for the future issues of “The Quarterly,” a periodical publication of the Society. Many of townfolks’ memories are very valuable as to the history of our town. How did you dress when you had to walk a mile to school? What were the songs you sang every morning in grammar school? What did you play when you were alone? Did you play with marbles, by coloring, or playing a pump organ?

Town Hall News The town garbage truck will still be in operation for the full month of January — then watch this column for further notice concerning potential garbage pickup which is to end soon. The town’s organizational meeting is to be held Tuesday, Jan. 3 at 6 p.m. All are invited to attend the town highway workers’ luncheon on Thursday, Dec. 29 at 11:30 a.m. to show our appreciation to the town employees who have worked so hard to keep at least a path open during the disastrous flooding of the summer season. Those attending are asked to bring a dish to pass. To give town employees a day off for the New Year ’s holiday, town offices will be closed on Monday, Jan. 2. The construction and demolition portion of the landfill will be closed from Dec. 31 to May 1.

incoming town administration, which represents a new majority on the town board — Supervisor-elect Dennis Dickinson and board members Marisa Muratori and Dan Hurley. Muratori, who served several terms on the village board, was present for the village board meeting. Blais said the village board might likewise be routinely sending a village trustee to the town board meetings to boost inter-municipal communication and cooperation. He noted that to start off 2012 in this spirit, a joint townvillage board meeting would be held in early January. In other business, the board approved allowing the Lake George Music Festival to use the Shepard Park Amphitheater for a free orchestral concert on Aug. 23 — a presentation, complete with fireworks, that wraps up their weeklong series of classical chamber music concerts in village churches. The board also approved an agreement to work with the Lake George Park Commission on a project that is intended to solve a stormwater buildup problem on Sewell Street. Additionally, the trustees approved the induction of three new firefighters into the Lake George Fire Department: Matthew Oswald, Dennis Mitchell, and Kenneth Miller. The approval is pending satisfactory physical examinations. Also, Blais announced that the Special Olympics NY Polar Plunge held Nov. 19 at Shepard Park raised $72,000 for the organization. A proposed local law regulating LED and digital signs was tabled so trustees could review and evaluate the opinions of experts on the law’s provisions including square footage restrictions.

Plea deal for county official By Thom Randall thom@denpubs.com QUEENSBURY — Embattled Warren County Social Services Commissioner Sheila Weaver, accused of illegally applying for welfare benefits for her boyfriend, will be paid her $79,184 salary through May — despite the fact she hasn't been working in her county post since she was arrested Aug. 5. The stipend is part of a plea deal that calls for her to resign Jan. 18 and eventually be cleared of all criminal charges if she stays out of trouble. The Warren County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously Thursday Dec. 22 to approve the plea deal. She had been charged with Official Misconduct, two felony counts of second-degree Forgery, and two counts of second-degree Offering a False Instrument for Filing. Just days after her arrest on these charges, she filed a discrimination complaint with the state Human Rights Division, accusing the county of discriminating against her because of her claimed Native American heritage. The plea agreement approved Dec. 22 calls for her to abandon this complaint and bars her from any other legal action against the county concerning her employment – in exchange for an Adjournment in Contemplation of Dismissal on the criminal charges. Franklin County District Attorney Derek Champagne, who is prosecuting the criminal charges against Weaver, said this week he had offered the six-month adjournment because the case was weak. In the plea deal, Weaver admitted under oath Dec. 19 that she had violated the county Department of Social Services policy and Code of Ethics by acting as Michael Hester's representative on his application for public assistance while she was serving as commissioner. County Board of Supervisors Chairman Dan Stec said he was anticipating public criticism of the deal. By the week’s end, there were various critical comments posted on the Internet.

I know people are frustrated we've been paying someone to not work,” Stec said. “But a settlement like this removes the uncertainty — We're trying to do the best we can to represent the interests of the citizens of our county.” Stec said that without the settlement agreement, the county could lose the case and face financial liability. He said the extensive provisions of the plea deal, including the extension of her pay through May, were partially due to the state's legal protections granted to commissioners. By this summer, Weaver will have been paid about $59,000 in salary while she was not working for the county. He said that the legal process, which included hearings on her conduct, had to be followed. “There is a process in place for government to act, and that process takes time,” he said. Stec added that the situation with Weaver demonstrated the need for a more thorough vetting process in hiring county commissioners. The allegations against Weaver and her arrest came as a shock to county leaders because Weaver had played a key role in rooting out fraudulent welfare applications, instituted new standards for employees, and worked to slash costs and consolidate the bureaucracy of the Social Services Department. In doing so, she irritated many of the department employees. Kevin Conine, the investigator she and county District Attorney Kate Hogan put in place to root out welfare fraud, arrested Weaver on Aug. 5. Weaver has been Commissioner of Social Services for 2 & 1/2 years. At the time of Weaver ’s arrest, former Deputy Commissioner Suzanne Wheeler was named acting Commissioner of Social Services, and she remains today in that post. County Supervisors have yet to name Weaver ’s permanent replacement, but many assume that it will be Wheeler. County Attorney Martin Auffredou said Dec. 22 the plea deal made sense under the circumstances.

Adirondack Journal Editorial

Let 2012 be about ‘hope’ F

December 31, 2011

www.adirondackjournal.com

or our New Year ’s Eve edition, we’d rather focus less on the term “resolution” and more on the term “hope” when looking ahead to 2012. First of all, we hope politicians can work together more to accomplish the greater good, not just in this area but throughout the country. This statement probably caused you to do a spit-take with your hot chocolate or beverage of choice, but hear us out. In Essex County, the supervisors did just that, approving a budget that was rich in compromise. At the end of the process, each of the 18 town administrators came away with something that they liked about the budget, but also came away from the table frustrated. A lot of times, their frustration came from different sides of the same coin. Some were frustrated the tax levy increase did not meet the state’s 2 percent cap, and others were upset the levy was too low. Some were upset that 10 positions had to be cut right after the holidays, and others were upset there were not more layoffs. There were no temporary Band-Aid fixes until the political winds shift. It was compromise. Congressman Bill Owens recently said he feels 2012 is going to be a terrible year in Washington, D.C. and nothing will get done because it is an election year with both sides of the aisle looking to blame each other. We all know that is the truth. But are we just going to take it? If that truly is the motivation of our politicians, then the message needs to be sent that we want someone in office who is looking out for us, not their personal party interests. With the upcoming election, we also hope that people will go to the polls and make an informed decision. Don’t just roll with the “what’s happening right now” mentality and look at candidates for local, state and federal positions, including president, as a whole. Each candidate will have pros and cons.

What the informed voter does is weigh those options in total and then decide who they feel best represents their interests in government. It seems that people want to have an “American Idol” conclusion to the presidential race, bringing a candidate up just to find out how fast they can chop them down. It has been done with each of the front-runners in the Republican Party (obviously not on the Democratic side because they have the incumbent, but it would be if the field were open). When a candidate is shown to have weakness, it is almost as if that candidate has been “voted off” as a presidential hopeful. The sound bite has become more important than the platform, and that should not be the case. Our next hope is for a safe and happy year ahead. While 2011 had many shining moments, it was also a year when the region saw massive spring flooding, only to be followed by a tropical storm that battered the region and left many properties and lives damaged. Some, including Essex County Board of Supervisors Chairman Randall “Randy” Douglas, are concerned that a new year could bring more problems, and we hope that is not the case. Our final hope is that the steps taken by the North Country Regional Economic Development Council and the state will start to turn the economy around. For a region that does not have a lot of trust in the name, the honeymoon period between it and Gov. Andrew Cuomo has appeared to extend throughout his first year in office. Cuomo has shown a concern for all parts of the state and has built trust with North Country delegates, which is something we hope will continue into the next year. Happy New Year.

•100 Years Ago – Jan. 1912• Adirondack manhunt for murderer

Edward Donato, the missing Italian farmhand who is wanted for the murder of the Morner family near Rensselaer last month, is believed to be making his way through the Adirondacks to Canada. An Italian, whose description is similar to the description of Donato, left the Utica train at Tupper Lake Dec. 28, 1911 and was seen to leave the town on foot taking the road leading over Mt. Steward which is seldom traveled in the winter. He is described by those who have seen him as having “a hunted look.” The Utica police were notified and some officers arrived and took the trail. It is believed that the man may stop at Mineville where there are about 150 Italians employed at the Sherman foundry and that place is being closely watched.

Seer predicts bad times ahead The coming of a new year brings changes of more or less importance with the social, political and financial world. According to a Paris fortune teller, we are in for a tough time during 1912. This “pythoness” declares that “a hard winter is ahead, a sullen spring -time, a heavy summer and a bitter fall.” Also “nations will be upheaved, a great European war is to be fought, the high cost of living is to go higher, Paris will probably topple in ruins, babies will not have enough milk and Kaiser Wilhelm of Germany will lose his crown. We’re not going to worry about it! (Note…Looking back at history, this female soothsayer was not far wrong. In 1912 the world was on the verge of disaster, just as we are today. World War I, “the great war,” started when on June 28, 1914 Archduke Francis Ferdinand, the heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, was gunned down and killed. It was an ugly war with the use of poison gas which continued on until 1918 when Kaiser Wilheim II, who had ruled Germany since 1888, did indeed

lose his crown when he suffered enforced abdication. History seems to just repeat itself — same story, just different names and places. Warrensburgh News Editor John Tubbs was right when he wrote that it did no good to worry about it.)

Hurried man chokes on food, dies Robert W. Johnson, head butcher for John Anderson Jr. at Newcomb, choked to death the afternoon of Jan. 4, 1912 while eating dinner at the Adirondack Hotel in North Creek. He was hurrying to catch a stage, which was waiting for him, when a piece of meat became lodged in his throat. The unfortunate man was hurried to the porch and every effort was made to remove the obstruction, but his suffering could not be relieved and in a few moments he fell lifeless. The deceased was 60 and was a son of the late Col. William R. Johnson of Saratoga Springs. Burial was in the family plot at the Saratoga Greenridge Cemetery.

Festive party set for Queen Village The first dance of 1912 at the Music Hall in Warrensburgh is announced for the evening of Jan. 3, 1912. “Jack” Curley will be in attendance with his two able assistant music-makers and a program of the latest hits to be rendered “Curley style.” The admission will be 75 cents for the fellows but the girls can get by with a quarter. Dancers who are foolish enough to stay away will miss a really good time! (Note: When you drive west on Adirondack Avenue toward Main St., roll down your window, listen carefully and you will be still be able to hear the echo of that distant music!)

Gala weddings held locally Miss Genevieve Marion Bibby, daughter of Robert Bibby of North Creek and Harry Suprenant, son of Modeste Suprenant of Olmstedville, were married Dec. 26, 1911 at high noon at the home of the bride by the Rev. Bert S. Van Vlett of the Chester Baptist Church.

The couple will return from their wedding trip in two weeks to take up residence at North Creek. In other news, Walter Foote of Aiden Lair and Miss Rose Goodspeed, oldest daughter of George Goodspeed of North Chester, were married at the Baptist parsonage in Minerva on the evening of Dec. 29, 1911 by the Rev. F.M. Bar. They were attended by Howard Foote and Mrs. Leonard Savoy of Aiden Lair, brother and sister of the groom. A pretty wedding took place at the home of James Varnum at high noon, Dec. 30, 1911 when their daughter was given in marriage to Luther G. Hammond of Lake George. Some time after Jan. 1, 1912, they will be at home at 153 Bay St., Glens Falls. Schuyler Gill of Stony Creek and Miss Lucy Bruno of Caldwell were married Dec. 31, 1911 by the Rev. C.H. Mead at the home of the bridegroom’s father, Chester Gill in Stony Creek. They were attended by Chester Gill, brother of the bridegroom and Miss Clara C. Madison. The couple will take up housekeeping in Stony Creek.

Business changes hands On Jan. 1, 1912, Russell & Co., will take over the tea jobbing business of John B. Brown, for years a prominent figure in the trade. His partner, Mr. Sloan and many of the new employees will continue with the new connection. John B. Brown is married to Miss Alice Faxon, daughter of the late Charles H. Faxon of Chestertown. Mr. Brown, who has large banking and railroad interests, will now spend more time at his country home in Chestertown.

Warrensburgh news briefs There was not a single death in the town of Warrensburgh in Dec., 1911. The population of the town increased by one citizen as there was one birth reported. There were several marriages. The windstorm which swept over this lo-

Firewood stashed by county will go to needy By Thom Randall thom@denpubs.com QUEENSBURY — Firewood that Warren County had stockpiled to help low income homeowners heat their homes — but ended up decaying — will now be donated to a local charity to distribute to those in need. On Dec. 22, the Warren County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to give the wood to North Country Ministry, whose founder Brother James Poluszny heard of the county's firewood stash and volunteered to take it off the county's hands, county Administrator Paul Dusek said. "He volunteered to pick up the wood, take on the responsibility, accept it as is, and be completely responsible to distribute it," Dusek said. "It has become a winwin situation – the wood actually gets to people in need, as was the purpose of the program, yet there's no liability to the county.” Others noted that firewood — which can vary in quality and burning characteristics — could have posed

Date

cality the night of Dec. 28, 1911 was one of the most violent known here in many a year. It raged all night with unabated fury, but no serious damage was reported. The next day the roads were muddy and than froze and made it so slippery that it was hard to get around. Snow finally came on Dec. 31, 1911, followed by sleet in the evening which put the roads in good condition for driving with light sleighs and cutters. Chicken were selling for $1 per head at Christmas and were all snapped up for that price. Richard Combs has sold his farm at Cat’s Corners to Nelson Combs. (Note: Cat’s or Katz’s Corners is in Warrensburgh, just this side of the Thurman Bridge.) While rolling logs at A.C. Emerson & Company’s mill on the afternoon of Jan. 9, 1912, Thomas Woodward slipped and fell, breaking one of the bones in his left forearm. Dr. Griffin was called to reduce the fracture. Michael O’Brien of Hudson Falls has announced the engagement of his daughter, Helen C. O’Brien to Scott B. Smith of Warrensburgh. (Note: For many years Scott B. Smith was a well-known and respected insurance man in Warrensburgh,) The mica mine in Darrowsville, North Warrensburgh is turning out a fine grade of mineral. Roscoe Stone is employed in John G. Hunt’s hardware store. (Note: The store was in the north end of today’s Marco Polo Pizza shop.) Craig Wood of New York City is entertaining Hart Joseph, Milon N. Eldridge. Berry W. Woodward, J.P. Gabel and E.C. Austin at the Viele Pond Club. (Note: This club was on the top of Harrington Hill.) Thought for the day: The Warrensburgh News started publication Jan. 30, 1878 to become the second oldest newspaper in Warren County. The Glens Falls Messenger, a weekly paper very similar began first when it started publication in 1855. Now, of course, the Adirondack Journal incorporates the Warrensburgh News, as it has since the mid-1990s. Readers are welcome to contact Adirondack Journal correspondent Jean Hadden at jhadden1@nycap.rr.com or 623-2210.

L.G. School budget forum slated LAKE GEORGE —The Lake George Central School District is hosting a budget forum from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 9 in the high school cafeteria. The event is designed to give area residents a chance to discuss their ideas on how the district can meet the fiscal challenges of the future. The format will be similar to the recent Community Conversation in which residents were randomly assigned to tables. This time, however, residents will have a chance to speak directly with administrators and board of education members who will be seated at those tables. At the forum, residents will also receive preliminary figures on the 2012-13 school budget. Patrick Dee, Superintendent of Lake George Central School District, urged all stakeholders to attend the forum as the property tax levy cap and dwindling state aid will greatly impact the programs the school will be able to offer in the future, he said. “Of course, we don’t want to have to cut programs because we want to maintain a quality education,” Dee said. “However, the district is facing obstacles that it has never faced before. That is why I urge all residents to take part in this important discussion.” Details are available by calling the District Superintendent’s office at 668-5456 ext. 1207.

Sympathy for Stony Creek family

Deepest sympathy goes out to the family of Jim Bormann, who passed away Dec. 21, 2011. Jim was a wonderful man who will truly be missed in the community.

Due to demand, builders today are constantly learning about the new and advanced technologies for home construction. Owner-clients want to be assured of living in the healthiest, most durable, least wasteful house possible — and therefore, building a home from the ground up is the best opportunity to get it right. "In addition to fixtures and materials, be sure to ask for the most advanced construction methods," says Todd Blyth at Nudura, a leading name in building system technology. "For example, more and more builders, on request, are discarding the traditional wood-framing method — now seen as inefficient and wasteful — in favour of concrete walls."

This advanced technology consists of pre-assembled, interlocking forms delivered to the construction site. The specialized panels consist of two, stay-in-place forms of Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) connected with a hinged, folding web. The forms are stacked, reinforced, and then filled with concrete, creating a solid monolithic wall. "The benefits are extensive," Blyth explains. "Architects are inspired by new design possibilities; builders cut their construction

time in half; and the homeowner (or commercial building owner) can feel satisfied for cutting back on an enormous amount of wood." As importantly, the quality of life continues long after construction is completed, he continued. As time goes on within "the most technologically advanced walls", your energy bills could drop by as much as 70 percent. "This type of concrete building envelope delivers twice the effi-

ciency compared to stick frame walls —and with no wood rot and mould it delivers none of the related toxicity. Concrete walls are up to three times more sound resistant; up to four times more fire resistant; nine times stronger; and far more resistant to thermal bridging where outside cold seeps in to cause uncomfortable cold spots, drafts, and mustiness." Floor and ceiling construction is now far advanced too.

wrestlers,” she said. Victoria Oehler said his fitness instruction has been helpful: “He taught us to lift straight,” she said. “He encourages us to do our best.” Robin Winslow Mahler said West is not the first male student to join the Warrensburgh High School cheerleading squad. She said Jason Bell, a WCS senior during the mid-2000s, was perhaps the first ever to be a Burgher cheerleader. She said he was an accomplished breakdancer, and had the ability to run across walls, seemingly defying gravity. West also has airborne talents, perhaps more conventional. He is able to kick his feet out to his sides, high and wide, and touch his toes — a traditional cheerleading routine. It was this talent, the girls said, that got him involved in the squad to begin with. Last year, Wood had just gotten out of a drama session, rehearsing for the school's production of “Little Shop of Horrors.” He passed by the cheerleaders in the high school, and uttered a wisecrack of their jumping abilities. He chided them that he could jump higher and with more precision than any of them. Challenged by the cheerleaders to sur-

pass their attempts, he jumped high off the floor and executed a professional toe-touch routine on the spot. Makala Hill recalled that she watched his jaw-dropping feat.

“I told him, you have to join us — then we literally forced him to.” Not long afterwards, he was practicing and performing routines for them at the Varsity games. Among his feats he executes

for the crowd the cheerleaders said, are various flips. As might be expected, Wood has received a little flak for his non-traditional role. “At first, I got a little of the 'gay' crap here and there,” Wood said. The girls on the squad have defended his choice to take on a role traditionally reserved for girls, at least in locals' eyes. Cheerleader Nequia Langabeer said the cheerleaders watch his back and squash any discriminatory or derogatory comments. “I tell them, ‘If you have a problem with Seth on the squad, you have a problem with the whole team,’” she said. Wood said he appreciates the support. “At this point, most of the squad would go flippin' out and stand up for me if someone said anything,” he said, adding that he plans to go out for cheerleading again in college. The relationship between Wood and the other cheerleaders is apparently mutual. Cheerleading coach Robin Mahler said Wood is viewed as a “big brother” by the girls. Langabeer said the squad wouldn't be the same without the male influence Seth Wood provides. “He's very athletic and helpful for the team – I feel safe with him around,” she said. “He does a lot for the team, and we respect him for it.”

era that sewer treatment became ever more technical and highly regulated, Blais said, noting that Burlingame was in charge when many upgrades were installed to keep ahead of regulations. He also was in charge and responded with diligence, Blais said, during the 2009 sewer leak incident, which prompted system enhancements surpassing state standards. Harrington said Burlingame worked well with others in carrying out tasks, including planning for the installation of $1.56 million of denitrification equipment at the plant that will both increase capacity and boost quality of the plant outflows. This project is scheduled to be completed next October. “You couldn’t have asked for a better guy to work with,” Harrington said. “He knew everything about wastewater treatment, and he always made me look good.” Burlingame started out 22 years ago as foreman of the sewer plant, and in the late 1990s was promoted to Chief Wastewater Operator. About 18 months ago, Burlingame semi-retired, shifting to part-time work in the position. The move was prompted by his diagnosis of throat cancer. Family members say the cancer was in remission, but now it has returned. Burlingame’s full-time replacement, Tim Shudt, is now on the job, and Burlingame is teaching him what he needs to know to continue smooth operation of the sewer plant, Harrington said. Burlingame said he was happy with the recognition of his years of work.

Longtime Lake George Village Sewer Plant Superintendent Reggie Burlingame (second from right) poses with family members in front of a road sign that was unveiled Dec. 23. The village re-dedicated the road leading to the sewer plant as Burlingame Boulevard, honoring Burlingame's 22 years of service. Among the 40 or so village employees and family members attending the ceremony were (left to right) Reggie's daughter Tiffini Burlingame, his wife Elly Burlingame, Reggie Burlingame, and his mother-in-law Shirley Sipos. Photo by Thom Randall

“Lake George has been really great to me,” he said. Reggie’s wife, Elly Burlingame, said she deeply appreciated the road re-dedication in the name of her husband.

A COLLECTION OF STORIES & PHOTOGRAPHS

Reflections, photos and stories of the former historic 1929 Lake Champlain Bridge, to its destruction in late December of 2009 — and finally its rebirth as the new, modern structure that exists today.

Lillian J. Reed, 92 LAKE GEORGE — Lillian J. Reed, 92, formerly of Bakers Crossing Road, died Dec. 20, 2011 at Westmount Health Facility in Queensbury. Born June 8, 1919 in Thurman, she was the daughter of the late Leon and Flora (Reynolds) Cameron. Funeral services were conducted Dec. 24 at the Alexander-Baker Funeral Home, Warrensburg. Calling hours were held prior to the funeral service.

Myron J. LaVarnway, 69 WARRENSBURG — Myron J. LaVarnway, 69, a resident of Phoenix and former resident of Warrensburg, died Dec. 20, 2011 at his home after being stricken. He was born Jan. 12, 1942 in Saranac, the son of the Lewis and Theresa Seney LaVarnway. Calling hours were held Dec. 27 at Northville Funeral Service, Northville, where a funeral service was held immediately afterward.

Mary Ann Gangsaa, 65 WARRENSBURG — Mary Ann Gangsaa, 65, formerly of Brooklyn, died Dec. 19, 2011 at her home surrounded by her loving family following a courageous battle with cancer. Born March 30, 1946, she was the daughter of the late Michael and Mary Eleanor (Quinn) Huber. Calling hours were held Dec. 21 at the Alexander-Baker Funeral Home, Warrensburg. A Mass of Christian Burial was celebrated Dec. 22 at St. Cecilia’s Roman Catholic Church, Warrensburg. Rite of Committal followed in St. Cecilia’s Cemetery, Warrensburg.

Martha Schoelermann Freiberger, 90 LAKE GEORGE — Martha Schoelermann Freiberger, 90, of Prospect Heights, Lake George, died Dec. 19, 2011 at Indian River Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Granville. Born Jan. 6, 1921 in Brooklyn to German immigrant parents, Martha grew up in Rockville Center Long Island. Calling hours were held Dec. 23 at Maynard D. Baker Funeral Home, Queensbury, followed by a memorial service at the funeral home. Burial will be at Pine View Cemetery at the convenience of the family.

Warrensburg solar from page 1 the town highway garage on King St., and the Warrensburg Health Center at Main and Richards Avenue, he said. “Several firms are interested in working with us,” Geraghty said. “We’re going to consider where solar will work, and to install solar facilities wherever we can.” Two weeks ago, the town of Chester began its conversion to solar power, as one set of solar panels went online at the town landfill. Other solar arrays are to go online soon at the Chester municipal center, town garage, Dynamite Hill recreation center and the town-owned Chester-Horicon Health Center. Chester ’s solar conversion project is a public-private partnership — with about $500,000 worth of solar panels, regulators and associated equipment designed, installed and bankrolled by a team of private firms. The installation is leased to Chester and governed by a 10-year contract that guarantees a savings of 10 to 25 percent on electricity costs, below standard

Kevin Geraghty rates paid from power off the grid. Town of Chester officials have said they like the idea of the lease contract’s guaranteed savings while private firms take on the responsibility and risk associated with maintenance, changing market rates and equipment obsolescence. Geraghty said the Warrensburg town board is presently keeping its options open on the decision of whether to favor leasing or purchasing equipment, which might offer more lucrative savings for taxpayers. “We will see what the engineers and solar companies have to offer,” he said.

WARRENSBURG — An intriguing trio of enterprises, owned and operated by a local woman, has opened under one roof in Warrensburg. Sarah Morgan, 31, has opened a cafe/bicycle shop and a beauty salon at 3897 Main St. in the former Maltbie Chrysler building. The first two enterprises are jointly titled Grind ‘N Gears, and the third, Groom Salon. The cafe serves robust coffee and espresso brewed from custom-roasted and ground organic beans — for about the same price other outlets offer tame, watereddown drinks. Grind ‘n Gears also offers creative sandwiches and salads with nutritious fresh and natural ingredients — organic and locally grown when feasible, Morgan said. With the emphasis on good health for all, the cafe also offers gluten-free, low sodium and vegetarian options. The eatery — featuring free wi-fi so patrons can check email or surf the internet — is open for breakfast and lunch, Morgan said. Breakfast favorites include gluten-free waffles and fresh bagels, she said. “The cafe is geared towards people looking for an affordable, healthy, fast breakfast, lunch, or hot drink, or a place to just relax,” she said. On the way in the door, there’s a lineup of new bicycles for sale, harking to the shop’s name. While some may question the combination of bicycles and a coffee cafe, it’s a new trend in Arizona and California, Morgan said. “It’s a West Coast concept that I’m bringing to the eastern U.S.,” Morgan said. Morgan said she’s launched the enterprise in the memory of her late fiance, with whom she owned and operated a bicycle shop from 2006 to 2009 in Dobbs Ferry NY. “I want to carry forward Ricky’s dream,” she said. “He’d be ecstatic with Grind ‘n Gears — he loved the Adirondacks.” While a variety of bicycles are now available for purchase, the repair and maintenance services will be offered beginning in spring, Morgan said.

ber, offers creative styles, perms and coloring. The front area of the spacious salon has a contemporary, bold appearance, which she said is “man friendly.” Separate coloring and shampoo areas have a more conventional look, she said. “The Salon has a classy city feel, while maintaining the modest Adirondack pricing,” she said. Morgan worked as a hairdresser in Pleasantville, Westchester County, and while there she studied hair cutting and color under master hair colorists — and took regular seminars in Soho. Morgan added that her salon offers a full scale of hair products for men and women, along with aromatherapy. Her salon is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays. Appointments can be scheduled for other hours too. The salon’s phone number is 504-8061.

Grind ‘n Gears can be reached at 504-8060. Morgan said she’s excited to return to Warrensburg and offer these new services to her friends and neighbors, old and new. “I hope my businesses supply a great place for people to embrace their overall health and well being,’ she said.

CHESTERTOWN — The pre-season predictions of area sports fans have proven true so far this year. North Warren High School, with its limited enrollment, is continuing its recent trend of beating the odds in girls basketball. The Cougars have cruised through 2011 with an admirable 4-1 record as of this week — a considerable feat for routinely playing schools twice their size. With a third of their season now history, the team is on a solid course toward repeating or surpassing their 2010-11 achievement of securing second place in the Adirondack League Western Division. Coach P.J. Hogan said the reason for their early-season success this year is team chemistry and court vision — as well as the players’ athleticism and drive. “The girls know where they should be on the court, they’re finding the open player, making the open pass, and working well together,” Hogan said. Another reason for their success is surely that the core team members have been playing AAU basketball together off-season for three years. To start off 2011-12, the Cougars defeated Bolton 55 to 27 on Dec. 6, then lost to the

on Dec. 13, Salem 52 to 34 on Dec. 16, and on Dec. 20, defeated Corinth 47 to 32. Hogan said his team’s recent success against the Tomahawks was due to steely defense. “We pressed a bit, got turnovers early, and forced them into some tough shots,” he said. “We also had very balanced scoring with four players in double figures. They’d key on one of our players, and our girls would make that extra pass to another teammate who’d score.” Seniors Kiera Warner, Cassie Maday and Margo Broderick have been leading the scoring parade this year. Against Corinth, these three plus Junior Amber Frasier all scored in double figures. Hogan extends the credit for the season’s success to each one of the Cougar ’s nine players, noting they’ve all played vital roles in the 4-1 record. “We’ve experienced a very balanced effort involving all the girls, particularly getting a lot of leadership out of the seniors,” he said. “Everyone is playing hard — in games and practice.” Hogan noted that both his team and the storied Lake George squad are both 4-1 at this point, adding that he is anticipating that his team will achieve the success of the 201011 squad — if not surpassing their record. “At this point, we’re playing one game at a time,” he said.

Pictured here is one of the big, wild hogs that was recently taken in Peru. The hogs feed primarily at night. The cinderblock provides some perspective on the size of the animal. Brian Thew, one of the hog hunters explained, “The meat is unbelievable, it is really lean. DEC tested it for disease, and it was deemed safe, so we had a big, pig roast!”

Big pigs in the Adirondacks

O

n Jan. 14, 2010, I was in Albany to attend a Roundtable Meeting with the NYSDEC, to discuss a wide range of sportsman’s concerns and

issues. Representatives from over 40 different sportsmen’s organizations and conservation councils including NYS Bass, Trout Unlimited, Ducks Unlimited, Pheasants Forever, NYS Houndsmen, National Shooting Sports Foundation, Safari Club International and others were in attendance. At the meeting, DEC administrators covered a variety of issues such as license fees, the distribution of Conservation Fund monies, agency staffing concerns, special projects, hatchery rehabilitation projects, law enforcement initiatives, DEC Conservation Camp programs, Archery in the Schools, the importance of mentoring programs and much more. However, the most alarming topic concerned the spread of a dangerous, new invasive species in New York, the feral swine. At the time, wild hogs had already been discovered in over 16 New York counties, primarily in the southern tier. Although the origins of the swine in the Southern Tier were undetermined, they were known to have destroyed agricultural crops, ravaged the mast crop, killed fawns and endangered many species of birds, particularly ground nesters such as wild turkeys. DEC biologists implored attendees to enlist the fellow sportsmen in the effort to control the hogs, before their populations became unmanageable, as they already are, in many other states. In many southern states, feral swine have taken over, and displaced many native species. The porkers are believed to have descended from wild boar stock, and their physical appearance is closer to wild boar than to domestic pigs. There is nothing cute about them. Populations can multiply quickly, as they can produce a litter every 4 months, with anywhere from 10 to 15 piglets. Wherever they have become established, feral swine have caused incredible environmental impacts, by damaging crops, destroying native plants, reducing forest regeneration and competing with native species for food and territory. Ten years ago, the loss and damage to agriculture from feral swine was estimated to be greater than $800 million in the US. In addition, feral swine have been known to prey on lambs, goat kids, and calves in Texas and Australia. In other states feral swine have been known to spread disease to livestock. Feral Hogs can now be found in every state in the country, and populations are at epidemic proportions in Texas, Florida, California and Hawaii. Recently, in efforts to control the invasives, the state of Texas took the extraordinary measure of allowing hunters to shoot feral hogs from helicopters.

damage! They eat the seed corn, pumpkins, apples, and they root up everything. We’ve lost over $20,000, and it’s not covered by our insurance.” DEC wildlife biologists estimate there are about 30 wild pigs in a territory of about two to three square miles near Bear Swamp Road in Peru. “Fortunately, we got nuisance permits from the DEC, so that hunters can help us get rid of them.” Mr. Rulf continued, “DEC has already trapped three, and three have been shot. A couple have also been hit by cars.” According to Brian Thew of Morrisonville, blood tests indicate the big pigs are 100 percent Russian Boar. Thew is one of several hunters, who have been attempting to help eradicate the hogs. “We were hunting them every night, and we worked them hard!” he explained, “But they are fast and smart! There are already three generations, with small 15-20pound pigs, 150-170-pound hogs and we’ve seen one older boar that had to be over 400 pounds.” Currently, DEC is continuing their efforts to trap the pigs, and hunters hope to be in the fields as often as possible. In the ongoing battle, permitted hunters are allowed to bait the pigs, and to utilize lights, as well as laser scopes to hunt them. Because feral hogs have such destructive potential, the DEC will usually provide hunters with permits to kill the wild pigs on the spot. DEC's goal is to eradicate feral swine from the state's landscape. In New York, people with a small game license may shoot and keep feral swine at any time and in any number. All other hunting laws and firearms regulations are still in effect when shooting feral swine. The DEC asks those who see the animals to report their sightings through email to fwwildlf@gw.dec.state.ny.us or by phone to the nearest regional wildlife office. Region 5's headquarters in Ray Brook can be reached at 897-1200. Joe Hackett is a guide and sportsman residing in Ray Brook. Contact him at brookside18@adelphia.net.

Deer take down by 10 percent in northern zone W

hile some really nice antlers hit the forest floor this hunting season, I think the universal theme coming from Adirondack hunting camps was that less deer were being seen. I know that was our experience at my camp. The preliminary deer take numbers in the northern zone seem to follow that trend, according to senior wildlife biologist Ed Reed. Reed said the number of deer reported to the DEC this season was down about 10 percent in the northern zone. Conversely, the deer take in the southern zone was up about 10 percent, he said. “So, overall, I think the statewide total will be about the same as last year,” Reed said. Hunters harvested just over 230,000 deer in the 2010 hunting season, an increase of about 3 percent over 2009. The 2010 deer take included approximately 123,100 antlerless deer and just under 107,000 bucks. Deer harvests in the northern zone in 2010 were very comparable to 2009, with adult buck take at approximately 16,100 and antlerless take approximately 12,500. In the southern zone, excluding Long Island, adult buck take in 2010 was approximately 89,900 while antlerless take was approximately 108,600. If the numbers hold true to Reed’s prediction, the deer take in the northern zone will decline from 28,600 deer in 2010 to 25,740 in 2011, with about 1,600 less bucks taken. Total deer take in the southern zone will rise from 198,500 in 2010 to 218,350 in 2011. Deer harvest data is gathered from two main sources, harvest reports called in by successful hunters, and DEC staff ’s examination of harvested deer at check stations and meat processors. Biologists are well aware that even though it is required, still only about 45 percent of successful hunters report their take, and this is taken into consideration in the final tally. Considering all variables, the DEC maintains its statewide harvest numbers are statistically accurate to within ±2 percent. Final numbers on the 2011 deer tally will not be made available to the public until February, Reed said. Reed attributed the lackluster deer take in the northern zone to a handful of factors, including milder than average fall temperatures combined with ample feed, keeping deer movement to a minimum. He also said the region has experienced larger than normal snow totals in four of the last five winters, inhibiting deer travel and making it difficult for them to reach food sources, increasing winter mortality. “Fawns are the first to go, because of their size and lack of fat reserve compared to adult deer,” Reed said. “We haven’t witnessed any really large die-offs, but a few deer here and there starts to add up in the northern zone.” The 2010 and previous year ’s deer harvest by county, town, and wildlife management unit are available at www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/42232.html on the DEC website. John Gereau is managing editor of Denton Publications and an avid outdoorsman. He can be reached at johng@denpubs.com

And this little piggy goes….. Despite introduction into the southern tier, there were few concerns that wild swine would invade the Adirondacks. It had been attempted before, in 1902, when Russian boar were introduced to a large hunting preserve near Tupper Lake, along with elk, Sitka deer and other exotic species. Although the initial stock was contained within a 1,000 acre game fence, wild boar has never been able to establish a permanent population in the North Country. However, it appears they are trying to, according to Bob Rulf, the owner of Rulf ’s Orchards on the Bear Swamp Road in Peru. “We first noticed them about three years ago,” Mr. Rulf recently explained. “I’m very upset, they cause a lot of

This feral swine, weighing about 40 pounds, was shot in Peru by Shoby Finle of Beekmantown.

Brothers Mike and Jim West shot these two mature Adirondack bucks within 20 minutes of each other while hunting in Newcomb Nov. 23.
