NY budget director details initiatives By Thom Randall GLENS FALLS Ñ In a rare visit to Warren County, state Budget Director Robert Megna told a gathering of civic leaders and citizens about how the newly-approved 2013-14 state budget accomplishes a wide array of goals. The new budget creates jobs, cuts taxes for middle-class families, boosts the minimum wage, reduces costs for businesses

and increases education funding to its highest level ever Ñ yet hikes overall spending less than 2 percent, Megna said. “Jobs are coming back, confidence is being restored, and as the Governor says, it is now a Ô new New York,Õ Ó Megna said. An audience of about 80 people from all over Warren County attended MegnaÕ s presentation, and nearly a dozen asked him questions about the spending plan. Megna noted that the last two budgets, crafted in compromise between Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the state legislature,

Remembering a local teacher


ATHOL Ñ Soon after a controversial decision was reached by the municipal leaders, an armed sheriffÕ s deputy escorted several thurman Town Board members from the town hall to their vehicles. The exit into the darkness followed several local residents jeering and muttering threats after a long-awaited vote was cast. Minutes earlier on Monday April 8, the Thurman Town Board approved a two year, $80,000 emergency services contract with the Warrensburg ambulance corps, rather than the local squad. Although all but a few members of the crowd expressed opposition to the pending contract, the board voted 3-2 to approve it Ñ with several board members citing the ability of Warrensburg Emergency Medical Services to provide Advanced Life Support at a cost to taxpayers less than the local independent squad which offers only Basic Life Support. The public hearing, twoand-a-half hours long, included residents shouting out accusations and pleas, with board members defending their

Warrensburg teacher recalled fondly in eulogies WARRENSBURG Ñ An English teacher renowned for her exacting standards who taught three generations of Warrensburg students Ñ and in later years dedicated her time to preserving the townÕ s history, was recalled fondly by townspeople participating in her funeral services. Jean Hinckley Frulla, who was born Sept. 23, 1927 in Proctor Vt. but adopted Warrensburg as her hometown, passed away Sunday March 31. Her funeral was held Friday April 5 at the United Methodist Church of Warrensburg. JeanÕ s husband of 53 years, town councilman Rino Frulla, passed away in 2006.

Warrensburg High School alumnus and former county Sheriff Larry Cleveland, in a eulogy peppered with good-spirited humor, recalled how Frulla had inspired students to pursue excellence, preparing them well for lifeÕ s challenges. Ò It was sheer terror when high school students learned they got Mrs. Frulla as a teacher,Ó he quipped, noting she required perfect grammar and syntax from her students in their writing assignments. Ò She was strict Ñ she wanted you to do things properly,Ó he added. Cleveland continued that compositions students turned in to her would be handed back to them covered with red-penned corrections, time after time, until they were finally resubmitted to her standards. Ò At graduation, I was still be correcting compositions that IÕ d first submitted in September,” he joked. “They had to be perfect.” Cleveland talked of how she worked with him repeatedly on his oral book reports, which helped him overcome his fears of speaking in front of others. Cleveland has since routinely been making public presentations in his career in law enforcement as well as instructing criminal justice and mortuary science courses, he said. Also, Frulla corrected ClevelandÕ s MasterÕ s Degree thesis, he added. Ò I know she profoundly effected me and I know she did with many others too,Ó he said, noting sheÕ d likely been a inspiration to thousands of students. Ò She was a person of boundless energy, a mentor and a leader,Ó he said. Teresa Whalen, a founder of Warrensburgh Beautification, noted that Frulla was dedicated to preserving WarrensburgÕ s historic buildings and promoting public appreciation for their architecture. Ò An outspoken advocate, Jean created fun, educational opportunities for our youth to embrace our past and appreciate our historic resources,Ó she said. Whalen said she provided valuable assistance, particularly in the 1980s and 1990s, in inventorying the townÕ s historic resources, and she worked over two decades to help get the Warrensburgh Mills Historic District officially named to the National Register of Historic Places. Ò Jean was the Susan B. Anthony for the cause of architectural preservation in our community,Ó Whalen said. In his remembrances, David Frulla, son of Jean and Rino, paid tribute for the community of Warrensburg, particularly those who reached out to the couple in their later years. Ò No one ever said no,Ó he remarked. Ò Mom, sorry I used a double negative,Ó he added with a smile. Jean Frulla taught high school English from 1949 to 1990 at Warrensburg High. She mentored student activities, including drama programs, the student newspaper, the National Honor Society chapter, and class trips. During her career, she was honored by the New York State

English Council Ñ chosen among thousands of teachers from elementary through college level Ñ as a Teacher of Excellence. Town Museum of History Director Steve Parisi also wrote this week in an email that Jean Frulla was a leader in the effort to preserve and appreciate local historic buildings. He observed she was a founding member of the Warrensburgh Historical Society, and had guided a class project in creating a video of the Emerson Sawmill, for generations a treasured landmark. He continued that Frulla also made the first and largest contribution towards professional restoration of the 1976 Bicentennial Mural on the exterior wall of the museum. Ò Jean Frulla set an example and left an indelible mark on historic preservation efforts in the town of Warrensburg,Ó Parisi wrote. United Methodist Pastor Stephen Andrews said Frulla had a positive effect on generations of students through her admirable values. Ò She led a wonderful life,Ó he said. Ò She has touched all of us in one way or another.Ó Cleveland offered a similar thought. Ò Her life is a living legacy Ñ we will not forget herÓ Alexander Funeral Home handled the arrangements.

North River Hobby Farm offers ‘haycations’ in restored camp NORTH RIVER Ñ The North River Hobby Farm will reopen in May for its second season, offering picnic foods, flowers, honey, local produce and Saturday night Ò farm to tableÓ dinner buffets. This year, the Hobby Farm is adding an additional amenity --- an opportunity to take a Ò farm holidayÓ in a restored family camp on the property. Sometimes called Ò haycations,Ó many small farms are inviting guests to take a break from the bustle of city life, and a chance to pack up the kids and enjoy a down-home night or two on the farm. Children can stay busy getting eggs from the chicken coop, watching the ducks paddle around the pond and climbing into the hay loft of the barn while grown-ups may enjoy picking their own peas, herbs and tomatoes from the garden and walking through the wildflowers admiring the gorgeous views of Gore Mountain. At the end of the day, visitors will sleep well in an authentic Adirondack camp built in 1910 by LeslieÕ s greatgrandparents which Leslie has restored Ò hands onÓ over the last four years. Ò Less than a hundred years ago, about half the population was involved with farming of some kind, and the rest of the folks who werenÕ t farmers had cousins or grandparents who were, and they took Sunday drives out to visit them. Today there are few places for non-farming folks to go home to,Ó says Clement. Urbanites who have an urge to embrace the country life can get out of the city, enjoy real food, see how food is grown and wake up to the sounds of farm life --- chickens and ducks, mules and a pony --- and at night see stars that arenÕ t dimmed by city lights. Participation in farm chores is not required, however, an extra hand is always welcome. In an increasingly mechanized world in which many people have lost touch with how their food is produced, or the region where it originated, Ò agritourismÓ offers tourists a chance to reconnect with the land, providing a Ò hands on experienceÓ with local foods. Agritourism activities include picking fruits, tasting wine, tending bees, milking cows and other educational pursuits while immersing visitors in the heritage of a particular culture and to discover local people who offer intimate knowledge of the history and traditions of their region. Visitors will stay in an authentic Adirondack camp known as Ò Bird CampÓ which was built in 1908 after LeslieÕ s great-aunt was sent from Port Washington, Long Island to North River where it was hoped that the young woman would recover from tuberculosis by breathing the fresh mountain air. (She did, in fact, recover and lived into her late 80s). Delighted with their daughterÕ s recovery, the Bird family built a small Ò shingle styleÓ camp using leaded glass windows from a demolished Guggenheim estate on Long Island, bringing these and other building materials all the way up by train. Traditionally, the women stayed all summer while the men traveled back and forth. Life was leisurely. Visiting, and having visitors, was an important

part of life. Cooking was done with a hand pump and wood cook stove. There are still a dozen 100-year-old apple trees planted by her great-grandfather. Bird Camp will delight anyone with an interest in architectural history. It retains the original leaded windows, porcelain kitchen sink, stone fireplace and wide pine floors, but for the first time in a hundred years there is reliable water, new electrical and plumbing. Leslie converted one of the three bedrooms to a bathroom, adding a glass vessel sink atop a beautiful hand-painted ladies dressing table, and during construction was delighted to find the words “Bird Camp” chalked on the back, verifying it to be original to the camp. The kitchen received hand-made painted cabinets from a wrecking yard in Massachusetts which were removed them from Bob VillaÕ s own home, new appliances and the original sink. In the living room, Wilshire oriental rugs original to the camp have been cleaned and repaired, beams added to strengthen for the weight of the new bathroom above and a glass front fireplace insert installed into the stone fireplace. The walls and ceilings had never been finished with plaster or drywall, and after wiring and insulating, Leslie spent two long winters cutting and hand-nailing narrow Ò beadboardÓ wainscotting which she discovered at Murphy Lumber. The beadboard was decades old and had a beautiful natural patina after aging outside under cover all those years. She finished the walls with amber shellac to pull out the gorgeous coloring of the wood. The cedar shingle siding on the south side had worn down to about a sixteenth of an inch after a hundred years of exposure to Adirondack winters. Clement pulled them all off, and nailed up new cedar shingles, going up ten feet high, then hiring friends to help complete it. “I tell folks that I built, painted or fixed everything under ten feet. Although I was a daredevil union carpenter in my twenties, I donÕ t go any higher than ten feet anymore!Ó Rosa rugosa shrub roses and perennial flower beds were tucked into place after siding completion. During another scouting expedition at a wrecking yard, Clement discovered a set of reproduction leaded glass casement windows similar to the ones brought to Bird Camp from Long Island in 1908. She bought them for use in partially enclosing the front porch which has suffered from a hundred years of snow and rain, and to complete a barn she built last summer. The bedrooms retain the original metal painted bedframes but with fresh new mattresses, feather duvet comforters and new sheets. There are numerous framed historic photographs which will fascinate anyone interested in North River history. Clement is in the process of nominating Bird Camp to the National Register of Historic Places. The North River Hobby Farm is located on an 8-acre parcel with panoramic views of Gore Mountain and a historic cemetery next door. The property is off Route 28 up 13th Lake Road to the top Cemetery Road, his-

The media: public watchdogs


hough many people read newspapers, not many people really think of what it means to be a journalist. Just in the same way people might not understand what a police officer or a doctor goes through on a daily basis itÕ s hard to imagine what a journalist goes through if you have never been in their shoes. As most reporters probably agree, they more often hear from the public when their work is disliked than hear from the silent majority who enjoyed their work. Like many professions it is a job that comes with a price. Not only does it include long, varying hours, the job can also can mean gagorders to work around. At the same time, reporters around the world are injured, in some cases kidnapped, killed and jailed for doing their job. In the midst of the trial of the Aurora Colorado theater shooter, James Holmes, which has the attention of the nation, a smaller case is being launched against a reporter who covered the shooting. The secondary trial is against a female reporter who is not being accused of any crime. New York-based Fox News reporter Jana Winters is being called upon by Colorado justices to reveal the names of confidential sources that released information that showed the accused mass-murderer had eluded to his psychiatrist at the University of Colorado that he was going to commit the crime. Winters could face up to six months in jail for not revealing the names of confidential sources which divulged information that Holmes sent a package to the psychiatrist that included a notebook Ò full of details about how he was going to kill people,Ó prior to the July 20 shooting, according to a source of WinterÕ s July 25 article. The article also reported the notebook contained illustrations of a massacre, including drawings of gun-wielding stick figures shooting other stick figures. The court believes it is information that could only have come from law enforcement or investigators in the case that were under orders not to talk about the drawings. HolmesÕ attorney claimed the leak compromised his clientÕ s ability to have a fair trial, though Holmes was ready to plead guilty to the crime if prosecutors promised to not go for the death penalty.

Winters is accused only of protecting the identity of confidential news sources while reporting an important development in a major national story. This information was then picked up by other media and became known to people across the country who were hungry to learn more about Holmes. Though the officers or whomever gave the information to Winters went against the orders of their profession or office to give the reporter this information, it is WinterÕ s responsibility as a journalist to remain faithful to the commitment she gave to keep their identity a secret. For members of the press integrity is easily lost by any one story or bad information given. If Winters had fabricated the information her job would undoubtably be taken away and she would have no future in media. Furthermore, the reporter is protected under Shield Laws, which are in place in 40 states, including New York and Colorado. Shield Laws are designed to protect reportersÕ privilege, or the right of news reporters to refuse to testify to information and/or sources of information obtained during the news gathering and dissemination process. As of Monday, April 8, a Colorado order for Winters to return to the state to sit before the grand jury was still in effect. A judge in New York has signed off on the order though Winters’ attorney is fighting it. As you sit here reading this, there are 60 countries involved in a some kind of active war around the world. Journalists risk their lives to be there and report the conflicts, so the rest of the world is made aware of the atrocities taking place. As of December 2012 the Committee to protect Journalists (CPJ) reported a record number of incarcerated journalists worldwide at 232. The CPJ also reported 70 cases of journalists killed in the line of duty worldwide in 2012. The media is a watchdog, an advocate, and a voice for the people. The case against Winters is one of many where a reporter must choose between their personal freedoms or protecting their journalistic integrity. Winters is saying she will choose the latter if need be. And she should be lauded for it. Ñ

Turning Back the Pages By Jean Hadden 100 Years Ago - January 1913 John Smith’s house lives on

John G. Smith will be remembered in Warrensburgh history as the man who first brought electricity to the Queen Village, close to the turn of the 20th century. In 1893 he started building his electric light plant on the shore of the Schroon River in the heart of town and by 1894 the first privileged few were able to partake in a luxury that their forefathers could never have imagined. Not too many years passed before he had an 800-light machine operating and messy kerosene lamps were regulated to the attic as the town luxuriated in the dawn of a new era. Incandescent lamps lighted Warrensburgh village streets. By comparison, it was 1910 before Bolton received electricity.

Modern day explorers

Delbert Chambers, a valued member of the present day Warrensburgh Historical Society, has been exploring the old riverside property off Electric Avenue where John G. Smith had his electric light plant. This property was originally the site of the B.P. Burhans leather tanning mill and today the land is owned by the Warrensburgh Historical Society. Chambers and I puzzled over a historical reference that says, Ò A new building was erected farther down the river and a flume several hundred feet long was constructed to convey water from the dam to the wheel pit in the new structure.Ó We donÕ t know where this was, and any information from readers will be appreciated.

Smith’s dream home endures

As I detailed last week, John G. Smith was determined to build an ideal home for his bride, and the dwelling, at 46 Hudson St., is now a grand, historic landmark. Present day resident Mike Lawler tells me that Walt Herman, a South Main St. store owner here in the late 1950Õ s, was once employed with

a crew of men building the house. The cellar walls were completed as early as Oct. 1909 by Norman Stone. In 1913 A.L. Mix, the village photographer, had a sign above his shop that read, Ò YouÕ ll see MixÕ s sign above the door, a pleasant, warm retreat, just opposite to John G. SmithÕ s, north side of Hudson Street.Ó Town resident Lenore Smith, related to the Smiths by marriage, told me that the house was originally filled with rare and beautiful furnishings. As reported in last weekÕ s column, among those to next live in the house were Jessie Smith, a relative of John G. Smith, and her husband storekeeper Charles Lavery. Years later, area hotelier Doug Burton purchased the house. Warrensburg businessman Donald Brooks Stone and his wife Grace were the next owners. I received many phone calls this week from readers and relatives who offered their recollections. Stone was involved in many business ventures. Warrensburg native Donald Putney said Don Stone built North Gateway Restaurant in North Warrensburg Ò from the ground upÓ after a previous enterprise existed there Ñ a small ice cream stand complete with Ò car hops.Ó He said that DonÕ s Ò truck stop,Ó which I said last week was located north of town in the 1950s. was actually located next to the Judd Bridge near where RebeccaÕ s Florist & Country Store now operates. Sandra LaFond, Don and Grace StoneÕ s daughter offered other details. After the Don StoneÕ s death, his wife Grace Baker Stone occupied the home through the 1980Õ s with the help of Thelma Plumbly and Mary Somerville. They called themselves, Ò The Golden Girls.Ó After moving away from the house, Grace Stone, 88, died Dec. 23, 2008 in Warrensburgh.

A Spaghetti Dinner in memory of Jamie Haskell and Rachael Daly is to be held April 19 at the Thurman Emergency Medical ServicesÕ squad building. The event starts at 6 p.m. Adult tickets are $7, children from 5 to 12 years of age are $3. Those under 5 years of age are fed free of charge. The squad will also be holding an auction at Thousand Acres Ranch on Mother’s Day, and squad officials asking for donations of items in good condition to be brought to the April 19 spaghetti dinner. The auction is slated to begin at 2 p.m. on May 12.

Activities and events in the hills

May Day is May 1 Ñ for generations in Thurman, handmade baskets are filled with paper flowers and left on a person’s doorstep to herald the coming of spring and express friendship. ItÕ s a great craft activity to accomplish with your children. When completed, drop place at your elderly neighborsÕ doorsteps on May 1. The Thurman Quilting Group holds their meetings every Monday from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the town hall. Bring your knitting, sewing, or quilting projects and make some new friends. For more information, contact Myra at 623-2633. Through the end of summer, the Sugar Loaf Seniors Group will be holding their meetings at 5:30 p.m. on the third Wednesday of the month. The sessions are held at the Thurman Town Hall, and the next meeting is to be held April 17. The senior bus service to Glens Falls sponsored by Warren County runs on the second and fourth Friday of every month. It next runs Friday April 26 and is free to seniors age 60 and over.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Thurman EMS will prevail!

To the Editor: Thurman EMS will not allow the events of the April 8th public hearing at the Town Hall deter their dedication and determination. The Company will remain solvent, satisfying their obligations and responding to emergency calls when there is a volunteer available. The squadÕ s problems with the Town of Thurman government started under Supervisor Red Pitkin, who walked out of office in the middle of his term. They have deteriorated since then, when Al Vasak took over at that time as Deputy Supervisor, and then Evelyn Wood was installed. All of this upheaval caused the squad to turn in its Advanced Life Support certification when the squad leaders of that era decided to dissolve, realizing it was futile to reason with the town leaders, and were poised to consolidate with Johnsburg Emergency Squad. When the situation became so exasperating in trying to work things out with the Town, the squad leaders of that time simply

St. for Chris and Eva Detmer as groundskeeper and handyman. Chris Detmers was a partner in Adirondack Studios, a nationally-renowned enterprise, once in Warrensburg but now in Argyle, that designs, builds and installs scenery and interactive environments. The Detmers extensively rehabilitated the carriage house at 46 Hudson. Jarrod said that Erica Ross Walker later lived in the second-floor apartment in the outbuilding.

Next in home: Sandler & Cooper

The next owners of the John G. Smith house were Raluca Sandler a local dentist and Gary Cooper, a real estate agent/broker and entrepreneur. Sandler, a Romanian immigrant, had visited Warrensburg in the mid-1980s, I hear, and was charmed by the town. She opened a dental office on Main Street, and her properties were always well-decorated with floral displays. She eventually started her own flower shop, Aloha Florist, next to her dental practice. Raluca married Cooper and in 2006 they bought the Smith house which had its own heated greenhouse and that renovated carriage house. Cooper and Sandler added a wrought iron fence to encircle the property, a pool, a circular brick drive and walkways, a fish pond and fountain in the front yard as well as extensive landscaping and lots of flowers. Two impressive iron, life-sized wolf statues stand on the side lawn.

Emigrating to America

Living with the Sandler-Cooper couple in the house was Viorica Dram Dinu, RalucaÕ s mother, a retired pharmacist. For several years, Mrs. Dinu had a little pastry shop, Ò LilyÕ s Place,Ó in The Pillars complex on Main Street. She was a fabulous cook and pastry chef. Ò LilyÓ was born in Bacau, Romania and became a pharmacist. She and her husband, Dr. Llie Dinu came to the U.S. in 1987 to be close to

Those who wish to go should call Laura by Wednesday April 24 at 623-9281. Plans are progressing well for Thurman Old Home Days Ñ a local celebration of Warren CountyÕ s bicentennial to be held June 15. Anyone interested in being part of history by creating a float or participating in the parade should contact town Supervisor Evelyn Wood at 623-9649. Incidentally, did you know that the only town in Warren County older than Thurman is Queensbury Ñ by a mere 30 years? Warrensburg Elementary School will be holding an academic awards assembly on April 19 in the gymnasium. The portion focusing on grades 3 and 4 starts at 8:30 a.m. and for grades 5 and 6, at 9:30 a.m.. Report Cards will be going home on April 19 from both Warrensburg Elementary and Warrensburg High schools. ItÕ s hard to believe, only one more marking period and summer recess begins.

Charlotte Wood’s 100th birthday

Charlotte Rumble Wood is celebrating her 100th birthday this weekend, and her family is holding an open house to honor her at the Echo Lake Lodge Saturday, April 13 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Ñ and all are welcome to attend. Charlotte Rumble Wood was born April 19, 1913 across from the Parrish homestead on Mud St.. Charlotte was raised in Johnsburg and she graduated from Johnsburg Central School in 1932.

On a personal note

Ilene BakerÕ s son Timmy prepared and presented his famous Easter Dinner for the whole family, and 33 people attended in all! Family members came from all over the state Ñ from Warrensburg, Chestertown, Bolton, Corinth, and Greenfield Center. Ilene says it was a beautiful dinner, and when they were finished the children cleared the table and did the dishes. The whole family chipped in afterwards and left her house just as clean as it was when they arrived, she said. walked away in disgust. As pointed out at the public hearing by a resident, the Town Board Ñ instead of supporting the squad and trying to help it get back on its feet Ñ has doggedly worked against the agency. Just when the squad was ready to receive the renewed ALS certification, the Town pulled its financial support, and the ALS Certification went down the tubes. The squad is here, however, and will stay here. We are starting off fresh with renewed resolve, and we will continue to serve the Thurman community in whatever way we can. Our heartfelt thanks go to Heidi Baker and her group for arranging the upcoming auction; to Jim DeSourdy for the Ò car washÓ events; to Becky DeSourdy for the upcoming spaghetti dinner; to Fred Witz for his financial help with the payroll fund and uniforms; to Mike Eddy and his company for repairs and maintenance to our squad building; and all the other residents who have stood strong behind us. We will always be there for you, and humbly accept with gratitude and love, your verbal and financial help. We look forward to 2014! Jean F Coulard, President, and all members of Thurman Emergency Services

their daughter and in 1990 they moved to Warrensburgh permanently. They became citizens of the U.S. in 1993 and Dr. Dinu passed away in 1997 after 46 years of marriage. Lily was a lovely woman who, like her daughter Raluca, loved flowers and was devoted to her family, friends (whom she also called Ò The Golden Girls,Ó ) and her beloved husky, Ò Zabar.Ó She has a son, Eng. Zaharia Dinu, who lives with his wife, Monica in Lake George. They have a daughter, Aileen Dinu. There is a street bearing the Dinu name near Echo Lake. Viorica Ò LilyÓ Dinu died Nov. 27, 2012 and is buried in the Warrensburgh Cemetery.

Ghost-hunter visits Smith house

David Pitkin was a well-known retired teacher, having taught for 36 years. He was born in 1939 in Corinth and lived most recently in Chestertown. He was a writer, historian and ghost researcher who published eight books on the topic of haunted houses. Pitkin enjoyed tales about ghosts, and he told me he believed in them. He told me he had in recent years been at the grand house at 46 Hudson, and he experienced a vision of a woman Ò perhaps smiling wanly,Ó peering at him from the round-top window at attic level. He wrote, Ò She seemed to deliberately pull a wide-brimmed hat down onto her head, as if to make a fashion statement of some kind.Ó He said she wore Ò trendy World War I style clothes.Ó David Pitkin died Feb. 13 in Chestertown. Old-time Chestertown writer and poet, Jeanne Robert Foster wrote in her poem, The Dancing Man, Ó You take a chance up here in the mountains moving into an old house Ñ Sometimes folks who lived there donÕ t want to leave it even though they arenÕ t on earth anymore.Ó Readers are welcome to contact Adirondack Journal correspondent Jean Hadden at jhadden1@nycap. or 623-2210.

Rabies clinics to be held

Warren County Public Health will be holding a rabies clinic on Saturday, April 13 at the Chestertown firehouse on state Rte. 8 from 10 a.m. until noon. Then on Saturday, April 20 the agency will be hosting a similar clinic from 10 a.m. until noon at the Lake George firehouse at Ottawa and Amherst streets. Pets must be three months of age to receive their first immunization, which will afford them protection for one year. The next shot, a booster, will offer protection for three years, and is required one year after the first shot was given. From then on, every three years a booster should be given to protect your pet. Both initial and booster shots will be given at all the countyÕ s clinics. A $10 donation is requested for each pet, but no one is turned away due to financial hardship. Bring dogs on leashes and cats or ferrets in carriers. For details, call Warren County Public Health at 761-6580.

Camp Association purchases 130 acres from Nature Conservancy KEENE VALLEY Ñ The Nature ConservancyÕ s Adirondack Chapter and Northern Frontier Camp April 8 announced a private land transaction in the town of Indian Lake. The camp, which has owned 38 acres in the center of the ConservancyÕ s 2,940-acre OK Slip Falls-Blue Ledge tract since 1993, purchased 130 adjoining acres from the TNC for $452,000. The remainder of the surrounding property, 2,800 acres, is scheduled to be transferred by the Conservancy to New York State at a later date. One hundred acres of the campÕ s newly acquired property, including all of OK Slip Pond, are protected by a conservation easement now held by The Nature Conservancy. The easement does not allow for public access. Northern Frontier retains the right to access its land via a private right-of-way over the ConservancyÕ s property.

Ò Our purchase of this property for addition to our existing ownership at OK Slip Pond will ensure Northern FrontierÕ s ability to continue its ministry safely and privately,Ó said Ralph Essery, Director of Northern Frontier Camp. Ò The Nature ConservancyÕ s eventual sale of the balance of the surrounding land to New York State will afford those members of the public who have long desired to see the lovely OK Slip Falls and Blue Ledge the opportunity to do so.Ó Ò Of all of the properties involved in the ConservancyÕ s initial 2007 purchase of 161,000 acres of former Finch lands, the OK Slip-Blue Ledge property was the only one with a private inholding in the center. The land sale to the camp in advance of transferring the rest of the property to public ownership makes sense for Northern Frontier from a business perspective and for the public from a recreational use perspective. Boundaries and uses will be more clearly delineated for everyone,Ó said Michael Carr, Executive Director of The Nature ConservancyÕ s Adirondack Chapter. Northern Frontier Camp, which offers summer camp programs for boys 8 Ð 16 years old and Father/Son programs for

fathers and sons ages 6 and up, has been in operation since 1946. Keeping 100 acres of its land in a predominately natural state enhances the campÕ s outdoor recreation curriculum and protects ecological values by prohibiting development. As part of this transaction, the camp granted a right of first offer to the Conservancy, which can be exercised in the future only if the camp decides to sell the property. A related subdivision permit to allow for two ownerships was approved by the Adirondack Park Agency in 2010. Of the 161,000 acres purchased by the Conservancy in 2007, 95,000 acres, now owned by timber companies, have already been protected by working forest conservation easements, keeping the properties available for sustainable timber harvest operations. Nearly 1,000 acres have been set aside for community purposes in three rural towns. As previously announced, a total of 65,000 acres will be transferred in stages from the Conservancy to New York State and made available for public access for the first time in more than a century. The 18,300-acre Chain LakesHudson River Tract in the towns of Minerva and Newcomb was the first to transfer, in December of 2012.

Nearing their 60th anniversary, Lawlers talk of togetherness By Thom Randall WARRENSBURG Ñ Mike and Helen Lawler, influential in the Warrensburg community for decades, reflected on their life together this week as their 60th wedding anniversary on April 11 approached. Helen Lawler first met Mike in a candy factory in 1952, where they both worked Ñ They were both 18, she said this week. Ò He interested me because he was off the boat from England and he talked really different,Ó she said. Mike had emigrated from Devon County, England, at the age of 15. With HelenÕ s boss away for several weeks, Mike Ñ only a teenager Ñ was elevated at the candy factory to his post overseeing the other workers who were busy making chocolate bunnies and candy eggs. Ò MikeÕ s boss was on vacation, and Mike thought heÕ d impress management by making us work twice as hard as his boss ever did,Ó Helen recalled. Ò So I quit the job,Ó she added with a laugh, noting that Mike got Ò paybackÓ for his over-

bearing approach. Ò We maintained our relationship, but he had to drive me to my new job,Ó she said. Mike and Helen were married about a year later Ñ on April 11, 1953 in the Presbyterian Church in Babylon, Long Island. Just days afterwards, Mike was drafted into the U.S. military. He served as a paratrooper in the U.S. army, a stint that ended about a year later when the Korean War ended. Mike returned to Long Island and started an auto body repair business. Within a few years, the Mike and Helen decided that Long Island was getting too populated, and they wanted to live elsewhere. Having honeymooned years earlier in Lake George, they scouted out Warren County and decided to settle in Warrensburg, Helen Lawler said. Ò We wanted to raise children where it wasnÕ t so crowded,Ó she said. Ò We found the people in Warrensburg to be very friendly, and thatÕ s where we decided to live.Ó While Helen raised their children, Mike was engaged in various enterprises. He owned various automotive businesses Ñ a body shop in a building on Main St. in between Miller An-

tiques and Warren Ford Ñ and during the 1970s and 1980s, auto parts stores both in what is now the Warrensburg Health Center building and in the old Niagara Mohawk building on Main St.. Mike also operated MikeÕ s Hideaway Lounge beginning in 1964 in Darrowsville off Rte. 9 between Warrensburg and Chestertown. In 1972, the Lawlers moved to a home on Horicon Avenue in Warrensburg, and Mike converted their garage into Schroon River Pub. Mike also was involved in various real estate transactions. He retired at age 72, and has been logging for the past 4 to 5 years. For 53 years, Mike was active in the Free & Accepted Masons organization, serving as a regional official in the group. In later years, the Lawlers acquired a second home in Kennebunkport Maine, where Mike pursued a dream Ñ he bought a lobster boat, repaired it, and has been actively trapping lobsters for about four years with a long-time

friend. Their commitment to Warrensburg, however, is solid Ñ as evidenced by their project to build a new home adjacent to their existing home on Orton Drive. The Lawlers are proud of their two sons Ñ Gary Lawler who is Chancellor at Penn State University at Hazleton, and Larry Lawler, who has pursued a career in auto body restoration Ñ as well as their grandchildren who range in age from 8 to 35. Ò WeÕ ve had a lot of good times, raising children, traveling Ñ itÕ s all been about family togetherness,Ó Helen Lawler said. When asked about the secret to their marital longevity, Mike Lawler spoke of cooperation. Ò It just takes working things out with a little compromise,Ó he said. Helen Lawler offered her own prescription. Ò Love, trust support and faith in God,Ó she said.

Thurman EMS from page 1

At a public hearing in Thurman on EMS services, Warrensburg Emergency Medical Services Operations Manager Steve Emerson reads a statement to the Thurman Town Board, questioning the Thurman squad’s finances and viability. After about 150 minutes of public remarks that followed — most all in support of funding the Thurman squad, the town board approved a two-year contract with Warrensburg EMS. Photo by Thom Randall

this town.Ó Thurman resident Sally Wallace suggested that the town should contract with Thurman EMS instead of Warrensburg EMS Ñ and the local squad could transport patients part-way, with Warrensburg’s ALS-certified squad providing Ò interceptÓ service, or taking over care en route to the hospital. Board member Gail Seaman responded that regional EMS officials were now calling ALS certified response rather to patients’ homes, rather than BLS-level service. Emerson noted that Warrensburg EMS was


pending decision. Town Supervisor Evelyn Wood cited how the Thurman squadÕ s lack of consistent response Ñ and recent shutdowns and reopenings Ñ had put their certification in jeopardy. She displayed emails in which Dr. Douglas Girling, medical director for all EMS squads in Warren County, raised questions about his further official endorsement of the Thurman squad, which is necessary for them to respond to calls. However, people in the audience described how over many years, Thurman residents had worked to form their squad, constructed their headquarters themselves, and responded to calls on a timely basis. Board members said they recognized the local volunteersÕ past work, but cited the everincreasing standards for emergency care, and how Warrensburg could fulfill those needs at a lower cost than Thurman Emergency Medical Services. They also noted that regional and state emergency medical officials have said a squad needs to service 600 or more calls per year to be a viable agency, but Thurman had only 89 in 2012. Warrensburg EMS Operations Manager Steve Emerson raised such concerns. Ò The income from billing such a low call volume is grossly insufficient,” he said. He continued that heÕ d examined Thurman EMS’ finances, and the squad would likely experience a shortfall of about $128,000 after another yearÕ s operation. If Thurman EMS actually achieved full ALS certification, their annual budgetary needs might swell to as much as $400,000, he predicted. Resident Susan Kline and many others expressed concern over allocating money for the Warrensburg-based agency, while bypassing the townÕ s local squad. Ò If we are gutted as a community Ñ if we lose our community identity Ñ thereÕ s nothing left,Ó she said. Lorrie Smith, one of the early volunteers in the Thurman squad, said Basic Life Support services provided vital first response, and should be funded by the town. Ò BLS service is very, very important,Ó she said. Ò I think itÕ s terrible whatÕ s happening to

now responding to two-thirds of the calls in Thurman. Thurman resident Patrick Eldridge noted how his wife had suffered a heart tumor and life-threatening blood clots, and Stony Creek EMS responded in 30 to 45 minutes, but the Warrensburg ALS crew arrived in a lengthy 30 to 45 minutes, he said. Ò The driver didnÕ t even know the quicker way back to Warrensburg,Ó he said. The board members were accused of not listening to the publicÕ s wishes. Wood replied that she had heard from many other residents who werenÕ t attending the meetings because they were uncomfortable to voice their opinions, considering the prevailing controversy. Resident Richard Bardi proposed a compromise, asking the town board to award a contract to the Thurman squad for two years while they reorganized and raised their standard of care. He predicted that the contract with Warrensburg could force the Thurman squad out of existence, and Warrensburg EMS, after becoming Ò a monopoly,Ó might escalate their rates. Ò With no competition, the town would have no choice to accept whatever they offer,Ó Bardi said. Board member Al Vasak responded that the town bankrolling the Thurman squad had its own risks, with the possibility of having to allocate more and more money, considering their financial stresses and uncertain future. Seaman added that the local squad would only be providing Basic Life Support, and ALS support would be an extra expense.

Resident Joyce Eddy questioned that she was paying plenty for fire service, was paying $187 more in taxes this year, plus $320 more per year for garbage collection after the town discontinued it last year to avoid a hefty tax increase. Ò People here wouldnÕ t mind paying $50 or $100 more to keep our local squad going,Ó she said. Resident Erin Beadnell offered her views. Ò Thurman residents need to stick together; we need to keep our jobs here and keep our community whole,Ó she said. Ò You are ripping this community apart.Ó Supervisor Wood said that contracting with Warrensburg EMS was a matter of getting the most expert reliable service at the lowest possible cost. Ò ItÕ s our obligation to make sure we spend tax dollars wisely Ñ and get the highest level of care at the best possible price,Ó she said. Ò Warrensburg has been providing reliable, consistent care for our people.Ó Vasak suggested that the public voluntarily contribute toward Thurman EMS rather than adding to the tax burden. Barbara Farrell called for the town to put the EMS contract up to public. vote. Wood responded that doing so would be contrary to state law. Resident Mike Eddy said that although Warrensburg EMS Ò does a super job,Ó sealing a deal with the agency would have its consequences. Ò If the board signs a contract with Warrensburg EMS, every town board member might better pack their bags and go to Warrensburg, because they have no Ô Thurman heart.Õ Ó

Tony Jordan to run for Washington County DA NORTH CREEK Ñ As Assemblyman Tony Jordan (R-Jackson) looks to trade in his Capitol seat in Albany for the district attorneyÕ s chair in Washington County, this North Creek native says the decision was bittersweet because he would have to leave private practice. That means resigning as municipal attorney for the village of Whitehall and the town of Johnsburg. Ò You can become very close to clients, but there are some that make it very painful to leave, and one would definitely be the town of Johnsburg,Ó Jordan said. Ò When you grow up in a small town and then come back and have a chance to represent them and help them through some really great projects, the notion of having to give that up does weigh on any decision you make.Ó Jordan Ñ who graduated from the Johnsburg Central School in 1982 Ñ announced recently that he is running for Washington County DA in the fall. He represented the 112th Assembly District for four years, starting in 2009, and that district included all 17 towns in Washington County, plus five in Saratoga and six in Rensselaer. After redistricting, he was bumped to the 113th Assembly District, which only includes eight towns in Washington County and seven in Saratoga. Ò The district changed, and when we looked at what weÕ re doing and why weÕ re doing it, Wendy and I quickly concluded that this isnÕ t what we were looking to do,Ó Jordan said. Ò WeÕ ll miss the people we met in Saratoga County. ItÕ s been an honor

Deepest sympathy

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of former Stony Creek councilman William Ò Wild BillÓ Liebl, 80, who passed away on April 2 at Glens Falls Hospital. Born Nov. 12, 1932, in Stony Creek, he was the son of the late Francis X. and Bella (Matuszak) Liebl. He was a 1951 graduate of Hadley-Luzerne High School. He served in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War. Upon his honorable discharge, he enlisted in the U. S. Army, attaining the rank of corporal. Liebl worked at International Paper Co. in Corinth for 35 years, retiring as a millwright in 1989. He was a cowboy at several area dude ranches and was caretaker of Livingston Lake Club. He was also a certi-

and Unity Lodge No. 22. Liebl was a member of Oriental Shriners of Troy, and was appointed as a state fire warden. His hobbies included hunting, fishing, horseback riding, snowmobiling and socializing. Survivors include one son, Joseph Liebl of Glens Falls; two daughters, Bernadette Gray and her husband, Kim, of Gansevoort, and Maureen Zinda and her husband, Larry, of Stony Creek; his beloved grandchildren, Justin and Jared Zinda, Courtney and Chan Gray; two brothers, Daniel Liebl and his wife Patricia, of Hadley, and George Liebl and his wife Jean of Swansea, Mass.; two sisters-in-law, Agnes Liebl of Greenfield Center, and Teresa Liebl of Swansea, Mass.; his close friend Barbara Brooks of Queensbury.

Friends called April 5 at Brewer Funeral Home in Lake Luzerne, after which Masons conducted services. In keeping with BillÕ s wishes, there were no funeral services. BillÕ s family expresses gratitude to Dr. Hoy and the staff of Glens Falls Hospital for the compassionate care provided. Contributions in BillÕ s memory may be directed to C.R. Wood Cancer Center, 102 Park St., Glens Falls, NY 12801 or to American Heart Association, 440 New Karner Road, Albany, NY 12205. To express condolences, see:

to represent the 112th and now the 113th, but really our love is Washington County.Ó Jordan said he will also miss working with the supervisor and Town Board in Johnsburg. Ò IÕ ve worked with some great leaders from the town of Johnsburg, starting with Bill Thomas, Sterling (Goodspeed) and now Ron (Vanselow),” Jordan said. “They’ve all put their own fingerprint on a town that has so much to offer and is doing such great things despite odds really stacked against them. And yet they continue to persevere.Ó Some business owners continue to be frustrated in North Creek, as they try to create prosperity in their small Adirondack community, and Jordan understands those feelings. Ò But when you compare where North Creek was and the town of Johnsburg was in the early 1980s to where it is today, itÕ s an amazing transformation,Ó Jordan said. Comparing a state Assembly seat in Albany to a county DAÕ s position, some of JordanÕ s colleagues have asked him why he decided to take a demotion. But Jordan Ñ always a small-town boy at heart Ñ doesnÕ t see this move as a step down. When explaining his decision, he spoke of his mother, who always emphasized the importance of community service. And a motherÕ s advice is how he ended up working at a private law practice Ñ Jordan & Kelly LLC Ñ in Greenwich. Jordan graduated from the Univer-

sity of Notre Dame in 1986, worked in Glens Falls in banking and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Law in 1995. “We had our first child, and I was visiting with my mother about the decisions we were trying to make and wanting our kids to know their grandparents in a very real and personal way,Ó Jordan said. Ò And my mother said, Ô Well the choice is kind of easy. You need to decide whether you want to make enough money to do Tony Jordan the things you like to do or live where you can do the things you like to do.Õ And that was really great advice for us, and as a result we chose to live next door to WendyÕ s parents in southern Washington County.Ó Once Jordan moved, he started a law practice and soon fell in love with Washington County. And being the county DA is a logical career move for him. Ò This really was the best way to have a very direct and real impact on the community where I live, where I work, where I raise my family, and really a community weÕ ve come to love,Ó Jordan said.

groups, sponsored local sports teams, and bankrolled various community groupsÕ projects as well as underwriting work on Richards Library. The fire company also holds various cherished community events, including the community Thanksgiving dinner and the

annual Smoke EatersÕ Jamboree, the premier annual carnival in northern Warren County. Geraghty joined fire company in August 1970 when he was 21 years old, the minimum age at that time. He was first named president in 1980, and he’s been serving in that post ever since, except for a two-year hiatus in the mid1980s. HeÕ s also served as secretary-treasurer of the Warrensburg Fire District since 1973. Ò Fire service is a passion of mine,Ó Geraghty said.

The Porter Estate

John K. Porter was born in 1819 and died in Waterfo rd in 1891. He was a graduat e of Union College. In 1864, the governor appointed him as a judge in the New York State Court of Appeals. He later headed the law firm of Porter, Lowery Soren and Stone. He was most well known for the prosecut ion and convictio n of Charles Guiteau, murdere r of President Ja mes A Garfield. Judge Porter lived on a 260 acre estate he developed in the ha mlet of Adirond ack. The property contained lakefront, pine forest, farmlan d and maple woods. Two windmills on Joe Hill, behind the local schoolhouse, were used to pu mp water into reservoirs for use on the estate. The spacious main house was built in the manner of the Victoria n 1880s to please his second wife. The front veranda comman ded a marvelou s view of Schroon Lake. Today the house, carriage barns and other building s have been torn down, and several parcels of the estate sold off. A stone-wa lled driveway that encircled the main house is still visible. The stone boathou se remains as an excellent exa mple of Adirond ack architect ure.

Geraghty started off his volunteer work with the Jamboree in 1970 cooking french fries in a food booth, but within several years moved into organizational roles. The weekend-long carnival event is the primary fundraiser for the fire company’s various substantial charitable efforts. Ò ItÕ s the one organization that IÕ ve really latched onto,Ó he said this week, deferring credit to others in the fire company who have also been involved in charity outreach. Geraghty noted that in running the Jamboree, he learned the ropes from Cal Engle, Dick Griffin, Buck Stone, George Sprague Jr. and Jim Monroe. Another popular community event, albeit newer, is the Warrensburg Community Thanksgiving Dinner, held at the town firehouse. The event, held primarily for area seniors, has grown remarkably over its seven-year history. The fire company has also held holiday-related events which have captured the imagination of the public Ñ and Geraghty has been a long-time supporter and organizer of them. The Warrensburg Halloween parade and visits to the local firehouse by Santa both have been beloved traditions in town since the early 1980s. GeraghtyÕ s other service Another community-service role for Geraghty has been his nine years on the Board of Directors of Hudson Headwaters Health Network, during a formative era in the organization, which has now grown into 15 health centers serving the Adirondack region. GeraghtyÕ s been Warrensburg Town Supervisor since January 2007, after serving as a town council member from 1980 to 1994. He became the Warren County Budget officer in 2007, and served in that role until Jan. 1 of this year, when he was named Chairman of the county Board of Supervisors. Geraghty has been credited, as county Budget Officer, for his role in slashing county expenses and downsizing government during difficult economic times. Geraghty worked for 32 years at the International Paper mill in Corinth for 32 years, working his way up to the post of production, scheduling and distribution manager. Besides his volunteer community work, the Chamber selected Geraghty for his 44 years of basketball scorekeeping Ñ nearly this full time-span for Warrensburg High School basketball games, and for nearly 25 years for the annual Section II basketball tournament, as well as scorekeeping for the New York State high school basketball championship playoffs since 1998. Geraghty said this week he started out in high school in the mid-1960s as a basketball team manager, enjoying the game strategy and record-keeping immensely. Ò Every year, win or lose, IÕ m there,Ó he said with a grin. Geraghty added that one of the highlights of his volunteer scoring career was his work at the Hometown Classic game between BYU and Vermont, featuring now-NBA star Jimmer Fredette. Geraghty said heÕ s enjoyed nearly every minute of his extensive community service Ñ as he deferred credit to others. Ò IÕ m pleased that people recognize what I and many others have accomplished for the town through the years,Ó he said. Ò But I donÕ t think I should be the only one in the limelight Ñ IÕ ve worked with a great bunch of people through the years Ñ many others that have made it all happen,Ó he said. Ò And when you work with good people, you enjoy what youÕ re doing.Ó Warrensburg Chamber president Lynn Smith said Geraghty deserved the honor. Ò KevinÕ s dedication to community service over four decades has been extensive and exemplary,Ó she said.

were kept stable and employee benefits were re-structured to save taxpayers a substantial sum. Ò We now have the lowest middle-class tax rates in 60 years,Ó he said, adding that families earning from $40,000 to $300,000 annually will be receiving a $350 rebate check this year. Ò In 2012, 4.4 million new Yorkers received a tax cut, and there will be more this year,Ó he continued. New budget to spur prosperity The new budget reflects $800 million in business tax cuts, he added. Small businesses, Megna said, will receive income tax exemptions totaling $141 million, and manufacturers will experience a 25 percent reduction Ñ a total of $120 million Ñ in tax cuts, in an effort to prompt corporations to retain and create high-wage jobs. The Cuomo administrationÕ s programs to boost employment have resulted in 300,000 new jobs since Jan. 2011, he said, adding he was floored by the data indicating that one-fifth of all new private-sector jobs in the U.S. during that time were created in New York State alone. Hiked minimum wage offset The stateÕ s pending hike in the minimum wage from $7.25 to $8.50 per hour, he said, wouldnÕ t burden businesses because the increased wages would be substantially offset by a tax credit for hiring teenage students at minimum wage Ñ credits that are predicted to total $163 million statewide. He observed that 48,000 workers in the Capital Region earn less than $9 per hour. He also said that through reform of unemployment insurance and workersÕ compensation, businesses in New York would save $1.2 billion, without decreasing benefits to workers. Boost for high-tech innovation He said that the budget provides for a program to prompt innovation in industry, particularly in high-technology fields through establishing Ò innovation hot spotsÓ in academic centers, launching 10 high-technology incubators and establishing tax incentives for business ventures that evolve out of the research and development projects. Ò WeÕ ll be working to keep young entrepreneurs with great ideas here in New York,Ó he said. Education a budget priority Boosting education is part of the plan to create new goodpaying jobs, Megna said, noting that the 1013-14 budget calls for increasing state investments in education by $936 million, a hike of 4.7 percent. The Capital Region alone would receive $47 million in additional state aid to education, he added. This aid includes $25 million for all-day pre-kindergarten, $20 million for extended learning time Ñ longer school days or school years; $11 million for rewarding high-performing teachers, and $4 million for early college programs in high schools. The state is to pay 100 percent of the cost of these initiatives, he said. Funding secure for developmentally disabled Area resident John Davidson expressed concern about the pending $90 million cut in funding of programs for New Yorkers with developmental disabilities. Megna replied that services and programs for these individuals would not be effected, because the budget cuts Ñ prompted by reductions of $1.1 billion in federal Medicaid reimbursement Ñ would be offset by cuts in service agency administrative expenses, prosecutions of fraud and elimination of overpayments. Ò The last thing we want to do is disrupt services for this population,Ó he said. Glens Falls Economic & Community Development Director Ed Bartholomew said

later he was pleased to hear MegnaÕ s commitment to the programs. Ò ItÕ s good to hear his intent not to reduce funding to the services for these individuals, and hear his pledge to monitor the situation.Ó Bartholomew said he hopes the Cuomo administration goes further in cutting costs for both businesses and residents Ñ particularly by eliminating the utility tax, which received cuts in this budget. Queensbury board member John Strough, responding to MegnaÕ s comments on utility reform, suggested that the governor look into allowing municipalities to own their streetlights rather than lease them from electric utility corporations Ñ such a move could allow installation of far more efficient lighting, saving taxpayers money while aiding the environment, he said. Megna complimented Strough on his idea. Bartholomew said he was pleased that Megna, credited by State Sen. Betty Little as a fiscal expert, personally visited Glens Falls to present the budget. Ò He really knows his stuff,Ó Bartholomew said. Little also praised his expertise. Ò Bob Megna really knows the issues inside and out,Ó she said. Ò ThereÕ s not a question you can ask that can stump him.Ó

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Hearing on EMS contract raised questions

To the Editor: I attended the April 8 public hearing, undecided on the efficacy of one EMS plan over another, and I remain undecided. I am chairperson of a committee strategizing the replacement, in NovemberÕ s election, of the current town supervisor. I am more interested in stating truth and that Ò Democracy, like

a precious jewel, shines most brilliantly in the light of an open government.Ó Sad to say, I saw restricted and edited forms of open governance at the public hearing. Opening the meeting was a lengthy, informative statement read by the operations manager of the Warrensburg EMS Ñ information no doubt already provided to the town board but

nonetheless important for the citizenry to hear. However, no such invitation nor courtesy was afforded to a representative of Thurman EMS, for the sake of balance. Ñ And yet the Board voted to sign the contract with WEMS. As each citizen spoke, they were asked to say whether they were Ò forÓ or Ò againstÓ the pending contract with WEMS. One would think the data would provide the Board with insight and guidance, but to my count 82 percent or 23 speakers were against the contract, 14 percent or four residents were for the contract and one speaker was undecided. Ñ And yet the Board voted to sign the contract with WEMS. The Supervisor stated that she Ò received tons of phone callsÓ regarding this issue, yet with the discussion being so important, she did not keep a log of the calls, to accurately account for the desires of the citizenry. ItÕ s important to note that three board members did not speak regarding receiving calls and one noted that he did not receive any calls. Ñ And yet the Board voted to sign the contract with WEMS. In answer to a question from the audience, a Board member admitted he received the final version of the contract with WEMS at the beginning of the meeting and said he was confused about the content, final version versus draft. This begs the questions: was he reviewing the contract while citizens were voicing the opinions he should have been listening to? Had he made up his mind before the citizenry spoke? Or is he just a really good multi-tasker? Ñ And yet he voted to sign the contract with WEMS. So goes ThurmanÕ s current version of open government. JD Lakatos Thurman

Thurman EMS— likely a tax burden

To the Editor: Thurman can not afford or support an E.M.S. organization. An emergency services official recently came to our town hall and told gathered Thurman citizens all that if any EMS squad has less than 600 runs per year it would go bankrupt, and our squad has less than 100 calls annually. Our EMS organization needs a projected $137,000 to operate over the next year. Thirteen percent of that projected budget was paid to two squad board members last year Ñ volunteers! The squadÕ s required Medical Director who is required to sign off on the squad’s certification had so many doubts about the Thurman EMS that he declined to sign. The state of New York has informed us that if we want a town-funded EMS squad, it will raise our tax bill about 24 percent this year. Also, after 10 years of operation, there is still not one squad member who is ALS qualified, although this is becoming ever more important in appropriately taking care of patients being transported. According to Thurman EMS accounting, $16,000 was spent on training last year and the organization is in default of $26,000 in back payroll taxes Ñ this information is from the squad leadership. I conclude that this organization is financially and organizationally poorly run Ñ an agency that I would not choose to support with my extremely hard-earned tax dollars. In conclusion, I can not support Thurman Emergency Services any longer. We would all like to have the Ò Cadillac plan,Ó but we cannot afford more than a Ò Cavalier plan.Ó We must live within our means or we all will become financially bankrupt. Andrew Templeton Athol

The little video that could...fix a road

A handsome heritage strain brook trout from Horn Lake is readied for release back to the water, in order to fight another day. Note the usual white outline on all of the fins, including the dorsal .

his coming weekend, IÕ ll be heading back down to Newcomb to attend the final offering in the “Got Game” lecture series. If the snow holds up, I may attempt to squeeze in one last ski trip of the season. However, if the weather turns warmer, I may just trade in my ski poles, and grab a fishing pole. There is still over a foot of ice on the ponds, and a dense snowpack in the hills, but it will all melt off quickly with a few sunny days, some heavy rains and a stiff wind. For those that must fish, many local lakes and pond are already showing plenty of open water around the inlets and outlets. AprilÕ s Full Moon, which is scheduled to arrive on the 25th, will prompt the annual smelt run. Even if the ice remains in command of the lakes and ponds, anglers will find opportunities around inlets and feeder streams as smelt and later suckers return to spawn in the streams. Currently Newcombites, Minervaphiles and Long Lakers are all celebrating the success of the locally produced video production that recently went viral, and well beyond the town limits. Eventually the video, which featured a serious spoof of the delapadated condition of the local highway infrastructure, made it all the way down the line to the not-so-hallowed halls of the government chambers in Albany. Although nearly 69,000 acres of local state land may soon be opening to the public, it appeared to many that State Route 28N was going to retain the title as: Ò The wildest ride in town.Ó But then came the video. Upon its arrival, politicians of all sorts took notice, and soon there were promises of an extensive and expensive project to complete a major refurbishment of Route 28N from Minerva to Long Lake. Readers can find the video at watch?v=tuv0_cP-0yU& For everyoneÕ s sake, I hope the politicians remain true to their word! The last Got Game event of the season will focus on game cooking, and it will be hosted by the fireside in the historic Huntington Lodge Trophy Room on Saturday, April 13 from 3 -5 p.m. Please register in advance at or for more information contact Paul Hai at or 518-582-4551 ext 104. The Ò Got Game CookingÓ is a timely topic, as many hunters

are currently getting to the bottom of the freezer, and struggling with how to prepare the last few cuts of venison left in their freezers. It is also a good time to learn some new recipes for cooking fresh brook trout, which will soon become a popular table fare in many local households, directly after ice out. The price of admission, (only $5) will get you a bowl of rabbit chili, venison stew, and a beer or other cold beverage. Participants are also encouraged to provide a game dish to share if they like. I plan to bring along a crock pot of cranberried venison, which has become one of my favorite ways to prepare the last few bags of meat in the freezer. After simmering in a crock pot for 16 hours, even the Ô chewy-newyÕ twitching muscles of a whitetail are as tender as a filet mignon. In addition to the venison dish, I hope to have a few snacks of Ò maple smoked trout,Ó if I can procure a few brookies in time. The beginning of trout season typically coincides with the annual sugaring season, and there is no better way to prepare fresh brookies than to soak them in a maple syrup brine, and smoke the fillets over the coals of a smoldering tag alder fire. Although a proper brine is very important, the process is never complete without an adequate supply of fresh cut tag alders. I soak the alder pieces overnight and place the small chunks directly on top of hardwood, charcoal briquettes. Do not let the alder pieces catch flame. This recipe calls for brook trout, however it works quite well with perch or any fish fillet, as well as turkey, venison, or other game. ItÕ s an old favorite for making Ò trout candy.Ó Keys to a good product are in the brine and in the choice of smoking wood. I prefer to use green, tag alder or apple, both species of which are readily available in the spring. One along the streams, the other when pruned in the local orchards. Soak the cut wood overnight to prevent it from catching fire in the smoker. Promptly remove any pieces that begin to flame For the brine mix: Based on 4-6 pounds of fish -adjust accordingly. • 2-4 gallons of water with 1-3 pounds of Kosher salt • Add 1 quart of pure maple syrup, or 1 cup brown sugar. • 1 1/2 cups of fresh squeezed lemon juice • 2 tablespoons of liquid/squeezed garlic; powder doesn’t dissolve well • 2 tablespoons of liquid/squeezed onion; powder doesn’t dissolve well • 1 tablespoon crushed black pepper • 4-6 large Bay leaves(whole) Bring the whole mix to a roaring boil and let it cool Ò completely” before adding fish fillets. Prepare fillets with skin intact, the thinner the fillets, the dryer the meat. Do not place fillets into brine mix until after it has cooled completely. Put the fillets in the mix and store in a refrigerator for 24 hours, covered. Remove fillets, and place on racks to let them air dry completely before smoking, usually 2-3 hours. Drying properly will allow the formation of a glaze that will serve to seal in moisture so the smoked fish will not be too dry. Smoke the fillets over a low heat, with no flames, according to weight. 1-1 1/2 lb = 30 minutes 1 1/2-3 lb = 1-1/2 hr. 3-5 lb = 2 1/2- 3 hr. Fillets will develop a nice bronze color and will be firm to the touch, but not dry. Do not overcook. Remove from heat and let cool on racks in open air. And try not to eat the entire batch at one sitting. Joe Hackett is a guide and sportsman residing in Ray Brook. Contact him at

Bobby Helms and Miles Jay, both from Tupper Lake caught this sucker while checking out Lake Champlain tributaries. They were hoping for trout, but Miles said, “this will do, its better than getting skunked.” Good news for the fish, they put it back into Putnam Creek. They enjoyed the sunny day and had a meal at a local restaurant, supporting a local business, which was good news for the local economy. Photo by Rich Redman

Clover food plots and frost seeding


s an old soils guy, my mind always wanders back to crops and dirt. I am always watching and observing the ground when the snow melts. IÕ m on the lookout for the crystals and small frozen chunks that mean the soils have started the freeze and thaw cycle. That means, itÕ s frost seeding time. Frost seeding is a lot like maple syrup making, you need frosty cold nights and warm By Rich Redman days to cause the soil particles to lift up, heave and then settle down. If you live in the Champlain Valley, and I mean down close to the lake where the snow is gone, it may be too late to frost seed. But then again, if it gets frosty one or more nights, you may have a chance, so stay with me for a while. Frost seeding is spinning on clover seed during the freeze cycle when the soils expand and heave at night, allowing the seeds to get into the ground. Once the soil warms up above 32 degrees and thaws, it recedes and covers the seed. For food plots, find a sunny spot with soils that are moist, not droughty or saturated. There is a very short time window when this happens and you need to be prepared or you miss the golden hour of frost seeding. To be successful you need to have existing sod chewed right down to the dirt with bare spots for the clovers to grow in, or have the food plot area disked or dragged in advance, so earth is exposed. You need seed to soil contact. If the seed is spread on the surface but sits up on other grasses, you lose! No ifs ands or buts! Ideally, you should have planned this last fall, like the grazing farmers do. They frost seed pastures very successfully. You would have lightly disked or dragged the area, had a soil test completed and had your seed and fertilizer all set to go. But we all know that sometimes we just shoot from the hip after reading an article by some whitetail group or grouse and turkey magazine and we just need to try it. So I am giving you the down and dirty, just get-r-done, quick method, with a tail light guarantee. The only thing you have to lose is some seed and time. The benefit to frost seeding is the seed is in place very early. The seed is in contact with the soil and ready for the early spring rains to start growth. Clovers work excellent if you do it right. The plan Ò BÓ option is the traditional planting method which is to wait until things dry out, then plow or disc a food plot site, then spread seed and rake it in and finally mulch it. Then wait for growth. But I know you have better things to do when things dry out - turkey hunting season and fly fishing of course. Someone out there thought I was going to say rake the yard and paint the house. Yea right! Okay, you have the seed in the ground (double the seeding rate for frost seeding around 10 pounds per acre), so now what? You need to manage it. Red clover lasts about two years, and white clover a few years longer with management. For clovers to grow, they need sun and fertilizer. Once things start growing, you need to watch for the young clover plants. They need sun. If there are competing plants, like grasses, you need to mow them to allow the sun to reach the clovers. Mow the competing plants, not the clovers by keeping the mower, brush cutter or whatever, up above the young plants. This is important even for grazers. The cows need to get into the pasture and chew down the grasses to let the clovers get sun. A few light applications of fertilizer will help get things growing. Clovers are legumes so they donÕ t need much nitrogen so a mix lean on Ò NÓ will work and it wonÕ t encourage grasses to grow. Periodic light applications of fertilizer and agricultural lime, and some wood ash should do the trick. Compost works great as well. Get a soil test if you can, so you can put on what the plant needs. For you do-it-yourselfers that are in a yank to get r done, never ask for help, and donÕ t need maps Ñ I say go for it. There is a trick to it. Sandy ground doesnÕ t heave like clay, so you may need to assist with some raking. You can scratch in the compost and seed with a rake during the thaw. Let the frost work it in during the cold night. This works for small plots. Very sandy soil is tricky due to low moisture. Sand dries easy and you can lose the plants if they dry out. Once again you have very little to lose and a lot to gain. If itÕ s done right youÕ ll have a great clover food plot for deer, grouse and turkeys.

Chamber recognizes Ackleys, Direct Deposit for beautification By Thom Randall WARRENSBURG Ñ About a year ago, brothers Lou and Dean Ackley took over a long-vacant Main St. storefront as a new location for their well-established Direct Deposit Redemption Center. A dingy, deteriorating building got a facelift and its parking lot some fresh pavement. But most of all, the premises was beautified with extensive floral displays, featuring bright colors and rich textures that change with the season. Direct Deposit, located near the entrance of the Warrensburg hamlet, immediately perked up the downtown scene. Town residents and public officials appreciated the dramatic upgrade. The business gained the reputation as one of the most attractive redemption centers in the state. This week, Lou and Dean Ackley received official recognition for their redevelopment and beautification efforts, as the Warrensburg Chamber of Commerce named Direct Deposit Business of the Year. The Ackleys will be presented with their award at a Chamber banquet set for Thursday May 23 at Lizzie Keays Restaurant on River St. in Warrensburg. Such floral displays aren’t new to Dean Ackley, as he formerly was groundskeeper for Warren County for a half-dozen years, tending floral gardens and landscaping for both the county Municipal Center and the county Fish Hatchery up through 2005. Dean Ackley said April 8 he enjoyed the landscaping and floral work. Ò We believe that making your business look attractive doesnÕ t cost much but it attracts customers and makes the town look better,Ó he said. Ò All it takes is imagination and a little work.Ó The landscaping initiatives arenÕ t the sole reason that Direct Deposit is being honored. Additionally, the Ackleys have reached out to community groups to assist them in their fundraising efforts. Sports teams, school organizations and charities have all benefitted from their coordinated efforts of channeling redemp-

tion donations to dozens of groups. These efforts by the Ackleys include collecting labels and box tops for the local schools, and pull-tabs for the Ronald McDonald House in Albany. Warrensburg Chamber president Lynn Smith praised the Ackleys for their efforts. Ò Their colorful displays serve as a wonderful welcome for

both residents and visitors coming into town Ñ and their charitable work helps so many people in the region,Ó she said. Lou Ackley said he appreciated the ChamberÕ s Business of the Year award. Ò ItÕ s quite an honor to be recognized like this by your peers,Ó he said. Ò WeÕ ll be keeping up our efforts.Ó
