Runners grieve for Boston victims By Thom Randall LAKE GEORGE Ñ Julie Alarcon dashed across the finish line of the Lake George Half Marathon, looking at the readout of 02:08:07 on the time clock for the 13-mile footrace which wound through the Lake George area Sunday, April 21 and ended at Fort William Henry. Alarcon, 60, of Windsor Vt. just recorded her personal-best time Ñ but the

race meant far more to her and others, she reflected as she paused and stretched her leg muscles. Ò I was channelling Boston,Ó she said, referring to how as she ran the course, she was focusing on honoring the Boston Marathon runners and family members injured in the bombing attack April 15 that killed three and left dozens critically wounded. The horrific act of terrorism had nearly ripped her life apart.

Indian Lake may host governor’s whitewater challenge By Andy Flynn NORTH CREEK Ñ With the Adirondack whitewater rafting season gaining momentum and the 56th Annual Hudson River Whitewater Derby on tap for May 4-5, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo may soon be making a long-awaited announcement about the Adirondack Challenge. And it looks as though the governor is considering the town of Indian Lake as the headquarters for the Challenge, according to a tentative schedule acquired by Denton Publications. Cuomo proposed the Adirondack Challenge, a national whitewater competition, on Jan. 9 during his annual State of the State address. However, since the speech, no details have been made publicly available, even though state employees have been meeting with local town and tourism officials and whitewater outfitters as late as last week. It had been anticipated by officials in North Creek and Indian Lake that the governor may choose to hold his marquee event on or near the Hudson River. The idea came from a multiple-day rafting trip he and some friends took on the Indian and Hudson rivers in September 2012 with guides at Beaver Brook Outfitters, based in Wevertown. In order to take the Hudson River trip, groups embark on the Indian River and take it to the Hudson River, then travel through the Hudson River Gorge and end at North River. Along the way, rafters pass by land that will soon be acquired by the state of New York from the Nature Conservancy as part of the Finch, Pruyn land deal — a 940-acre parcel at the confluence of the Indian and Hudson rivers and the 2,800-acre OK Slip Falls Tract. The governor announced April 23 that these tracts would be purchased within the next several weeks. Ò The most exciting and popular whitewater rafting experience in the Adirondacks starts on the Indian River and continues for nearly 15 miles down the Hudson River Gorge,Ó stated the gov-

ernorÕ s prepared release. The Adirondack Challenge would give the governor a chance to showcase these new Forest Preserve lands. The tentative itinerary for the Adirondack Challenge Festival sets Sunday, July 21 as the date and the town of Indian Lake as the place. However, nobody from the governor’s press office or Empire State Development, which runs the I Love New York program, could confirm or deny the information by press time. Even local outfitters and town officials are tight-lipped. Indian Lake Town Supervisor Brian Wells said he canÕ t say anything until the governor makes his announcement. Johnsburg Town Supervisor Ron Vanselow said he was out of the loop on the planning. Indian Lake Chamber of Commerce Board President Christine Pouch said she has not heard anything, as she just got back form vacation. Regional Office of Sustainable Tourism Executive Director Jim McKenna, based in Lake Placid, said he canÕ t say anything, as details are still being worked out and all plans are tentative at this point. And Gore Mountain Region Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Lisa Salamon said that while it looks as though Indian Lake in Hamilton County will be getting the Adirondack Challenge Festival, instead of the town of Johnsburg in Warren County, she and other business leaders in North River and North Creek will play a part in the event. Ò Since we have all the feet on the ground here, weÕ ll obviously be doing a couple of things,Ó Salamon said. Ò One, helping get the festival off the ground, especially with lodging and accommodations. If we’re going to have a big influx of people, obviously theyÕ re going to have to stay somewhere.Ó According to the tentative itinerary, the Adirondack Challenge would feature a whitewater race for the governor and other elected officials and invited guests. Then there will be an internationally competitive flatwater event and a festival with food and music. That would include an awards ceremony hosted by the governor. In 2013, the event would be branded the Adirondack Challenge Kickoff Festival.

Tri-Lakes Alliances’ wine social packs the house By Thom Randall CHESTERTOWN Ñ Officials of the Tri-Lakes Business Alliance said this week their wine-tasting fundraiser held April 16 at The Bullhouse restaurant was a substantial success Ñ not only due to the amiable socializing, but also because the event netted $1,489 for the organization. About 60 people filled The Bullhouse, enjoying the music of singer-songwriter Rich Ortiz in addition to savoring hors dÕ oeuvres while greeting friends, neighbors and fellow entrepreneurs.

Special appreciation was expressed at the groupÕ s April 19 meeting for Wayne Thomas of North Creek, who donated his 50-50 winnings of $205 at the wine-tasting party back to the Alliance. Thanks were also expressed to all attending and those who donated items for the raffles, including Art in Chester Gallery for a donated painting; to Sharon and Greg Taylor of Fern Lodge for their offering of several bottles of fine wine; to MacMillan Construction for a gift basket; and to Green Mansions for golf games. Special thanks were accorded to Bill Brannigan from Adirondack Moonshine for orga-

nizing the event and to Lonnie at The Bullhouse for the use of her restaurant. The eventÕ s proceeds will be used to help with advertising, signage, music for events, and perhaps firework displays. Also, it was noted that Brandon Himoff will be giving a presentation to the Adirondack Park Agency and gathered area upstate officials at the agencyÕ s Local Government Day conference April 24 and 25 at the Crowne Plaza in Lake Placid Ñ at the agencyÕ s request. Himoff will be explaining the goals and various achievements of the Tri-Lakes Business Alliance in boosting northern Warren CountyÕ s

The Bullhouse Restaurant in downtown Chestertown was packed April 16 with local people enjoying music, hors d’oeuvres and socializing at a wine-tasting party sponsored by the Tri-Lakes Business Alliance.

Adirondack Journal Editorial

The need for gaming in Life in a dangerous world the Adirondacks is large W I

n 1990, Colorado held a statewide referendum to legalize limited stakes gambling in three struggling mining towns that were on the verge of ceasing to exist. The towns of Black Hawk, Central City and Cripple Creek played a huge role in the boomtown gold rush of the mid-1800s, but when the gold ran dry these once bustling communities became ghost towns. Faced with a dwindling population, deteriorating infrastructure and disintegrating architecture, officials in the towns banded together to lobby for gaming in their commercial districts, and the idea was put before Colorado voters. The measure passed overwhelmingly, and investors began renovating historic structures for use as casinos. Beginning with opening day on October 1, 1991, gaming proved spectacularly successful in attracting new investment in amounts unheard of since the gold boom more than a century before. Today, the same argument of dwindling population and deteriorating infrastructure could be made for many Adirondack towns. Data released in 2009 by the Adirondack Park Regional Assessment Project (APRAP) clearly demonstrate that. Student enrollment in our schools is evaporating, leading to fewer opportunities for our kids and our year-round population is aging. Dilapidated empty storefronts line our Main Streets. Towns like Newcomb, Port Henry and Tupper Lake that once thrived from logging and mining now seem to be headed the way of Black Hawk, Central City and Cripple Creek. Casino gambling would without a doubt stop that trend, just as it did in Colorado, and would be a badly needed source of revenue for the state, hopefully leading to less reliance on things like the local property tax. In Colorado, gaming pumps more than $100 million into the stateÕ s economy each year. That money is used for everything from roads and transportation to infrastructure improvements to tourism promotion to historic preservation. ColoradoÕ s gaming industry also provides more than 27,000 direct and indirect jobs to its citizens and offers above-average wages Ñ

something as scarce in the Adirondacks as a 4-year-old car without rust. In addition, casino employees in Colorado receive competitive fringe benefits like tuition reimbursement, transportation and meals, retirement and pension plans, health and life insurance, and exceptional promotional opportunities. In other words, the very benefits our college graduates are leaving the area in search of. Certainly the argument can be made that casinos would forever alter the quality of life that makes the Adirondacks the special place it is. But through progressive planning Ñ like forcing casinos into commercial districts, limiting stakes and establishing set closing times Ñ casino gambling could be as good a fit here as it proved to be in Black Hawk, Central City and Cripple Creek. The casino building proposal in New York is expected to come to a head later this year when Gov. Andrew Cuomo divulges up to seven potential casino locations. The state legislature has already passed a constitutional amendment approving the new casinos. It must be passed again this year and then, like Colorado, must be approved in a statewide voter referendum before becoming law. Anticipating approval some towns, like Port Henry, North Hudson and Lake George, have already tossed their hats in the ring for consideration to become host to one of the new casinos. Potential locations such as Frontier Town, located at Exit 29 of the Northway in North Hudson; Roaring Brook Ranch off Exit 21 of the Northway in Lake George and the former LoweÕ s Home Improvement Center in downtown Ticonderoga have emerged. When it comes down to decision-making time, letÕ s hope the governor bases his decision on need rather than greed. If so — and there is no conflict with existing Native American casinos Ñ than no other region of the state would benefit more from a gaming operation than the Adirondacks. Ñ

Experiment begets explosion

Essex Co. man kills brother

Child torn from loving arms

Defendant judged insane

Washburn and Hickey of Indian Lake, in their chemical researches, have found that a mixture of air and hydrogen make a good explosive and recently gave a demonstration of the fact. Gretchen Houghton, who was studying biology nearby was the victim as flames flew in her direction setting her hair on fire and burning her face. Her eye was only slightly injured.

A crime was committed in Essex County, Jan. 19, 1913, when James Pattisen, a lumber jack of unsavory reputation, attacked and killed his brother, Thomas in a particularly flagitious manner. Dragging his sleeping brother from his bed, the murderer stabbed him twice, once in the arm and again in the left breast, the latter wound penetrating the heart and causing death.

In the chambers of Warren County Judge Raley in Glens Falls, a pathetic scene was enacted April 15, 2013 when two prominent people, Mr. and Mrs. Lewis Dickinson of Warrensburgh, were forced to part with their beloved granddaughter, Myrtle Burnham, 8, who they had given since her birth the only parental love she ever knew. The child, greatly against her will, was wrested from her grief-stricken dear ones and forced to go to Bellows Falls, Vt. with her legal parents, Mr. and Mrs. Walter S. Burnham who betrayed no interest in her welfare from the time she came into the world until last fall. Clinging to her weeping grandparents and sobbing as if her heart would break, the little one was virtually torn from the only friends she had and forced to go with strangers to a strange place. Despite her pleadings to be left with her grandparents, her parents remained stubborn. The child is frail and would listen to no inducements made by her father and mother. With tears streaming down their faces, the grandparents left the little girl, expressing fear that she would die of a broken heart. Deciding the petition for the custody of the child upon the Beaudoin case, which has attracted considerable attention, Judge Raley had no course but to give the child into the keep of her parents. Mrs. Burnham formerly lived in Glens Falls and Walter Burnham lived in Corinth. Six years ago they moved to Bellows Falls. Burnham is employed as a machinist and

Howard Monroe of Wevertown, who a few weeks ago was mixed up in a midnight fracas at the Griswold Tavern Ñ a roadhouse in the town of Moreau Ñ during which it was alleged he stabbed Thomas Luddy of Watervliet, has been declared of unsound mind and committed to the State Asylum for the Insane at Utica. Luddy was stabbed in different parts of his body five times leaving him in critical condition. He later recovered in the Glens Falls Hospital. Monroe has long been an erratic individual and for the past year his relatives claim that he has been showing pronounced signs of mental aberration. He at one time conducted a stage line between North Creek and Glens Falls which was discontinued about two years ago. He has since been engaged in horse trading and teaming. Monroe was confined in the Saratoga County jail at Ballston after the attack and was later released on $1,000 bail. His brother Harvey Monroe convinced Judge George S. Braley to declare him insane and to send him to Utica to prevent him from injuring or killing others.

Several bridges suffer damage

Warrensburgh Superintendent of Highways Henry Williams has been making temporary repairs to the Warrensburgh-Thurman bridge. The span has been closed since the recent flood when one of its supporting piers was damaged and so weakened it that it was deemed unsafe.

WCS Prom set for Inn at Erlowest

Proms are an iconic, integral part of the high school experience, and they likely emerged from the popularity of upper-class debutante balls in high society. With this in mind, it seems very fitting that the Warrensburg High School Junior Prom is to be held at the elegant Inn at Erlowest on the shores of Lake George on Saturday May 4. The Inn at Erlowest is a magnificent turn-of-the-century Queen Anne stone castle, which hosts parties with candlelight and crystal. It also is a well-appointed bed and breakfast that has an enviable reputation. The Erlowest castle was built in 1898 by Edward Shepard, a prominent attorney, author, humanitarian and politician from Brooklyn. In the Erlowest dining room, Shepard entertained such influential people as author Katrina Trask and her husband Spencer, a prominent banker, as well as humanitarian George Foster Peabody. In the 1960s, Charles R. Wood Ñ founder of Storytown and considered the godfather of all theme parks Ñ bought Erlowest and renamed it Sun Castle. Decades later, it was sold to developer Dave Kenny and his partners who have been dedicated to restoring it to its historic grandeur.

Benefit event set for Jean Wheeler

On Friday May 17 the Thurman Station Association will host a benefit sale for Claudia Jean Wheeler of Wolf Pond Stables, who suffered substantial losses in a fire which destroyed a shed that housed her chickens, as well as a great deal of equipment, tools, kidsÕ bikes, and the costly generator needed to power her home. Her losses reportedly arenÕ t covered by insurance. The event, which offers food-to-go and beverages, will be held at the Thurman Town Hall. Proceeds are to benefit Wheeler and her family.

It will cost $2,000 to fix it and the county will stand part of the expense. In other news, the bridge extending across the Hudson river between the towns of Fort Edward and Moreau was washed away April 16, 1913 as the structure was left in a weakened condition by recent flood waters. The damage will exceed $10,000. Another bridge across the river half a mile north of this one also went down during the flood. (Note- In the March 23 Adirondack Journal was the story of the Glens Falls - South Glens Falls bridge being washed away by the deluge.)

ing will be ready by Aug. 13, 1913.

In the fire at Bakers Mills last week in which William Merrill was burned to death in his store and residence building, the damage was estimated at $3,000, the building, household goods and stock of merchandise, with the barn in the rear, together with two tons of hay, three wagons and a cutter, being a total loss. There was $1,250 insurance on all the property. Mr. MerrillÕ s widow will leave Bakers Mills as soon as she can settle her affairs. (Note: This tragic story was told here in the April 20 Adirondack Journal. It was alleged that Merrill was walking around his store late at night with a kerosene lantern while he was intoxicated.)

Filomena plays the role of Veta, whose brother Elwood believes his best friend is a giant invisible rabbit named Harvey Ñ and Veta has had quite enough of living with the creature.

Death before its time

Miss Estelle Gallup, 28, eldest daughter of Herschel Gallup of Johnsburgh, died April 13, 1913 after a lingering illness of tuberculosis. During her whole illness Miss Gallup was very patient and kept up her courage until the Messenger of Death came to relieve her suffering. Her death was particularly sad as it is the third death in the family within a short time. She is survived by a brother and two sisters, Winifred and Belva Gallup of Johnsburgh. She was buried in the family plot in the Bates Cemetery, Johnsburgh. Every year we raise better cows, better horses, better trees and better flowers, why not better babies? Mothers with new babies should realize that a better baby is possible. County Superintendent of Highways Bertram E. Murray has purchased a five-passenger Overland automobile from Hall & Granger, proprietors of the Warrensburgh Automobile Garage. Dr. Allen Parker has purchased a Ford runabout for use in his practice. Claude C. Granger, a summer hotel man at Kattskill Bay, Lake George, has filed a petition of voluntary bankruptcy in the United States court in Utica. In it Granger made an affidavit that he owes money to 40 creditors and the only property he possesses is $1.43 in cash. John G. Smith is in the process of building a greenhouse on his Warrensburgh property at 63 Hudson St., adjunct to his beautiful new residence. Ò Comical Tom,Ó a negro minstrel performer, was billed to give a show at the North Thurman schoolhouse Saturday night, but for some reason he did not appear. A large crowd has gathered to see the show. Readers are welcome to contact Adirondack Journal correspondent Jean Hadden at or 623-2210.

This sounds like a great production that should not be missed. The story is considered a classic of the American theater, and this local production is directed by William Woodward. For tickets, contact the Wood Theater Box Office at 874-0800.

Let’s be stewards of the land

As I drive over Thurman roads, I look around at our surroundings and appreciate the incredible natural beauty of the landscape we all have chosen as our home. However, it seems to me that some people do not appropriately respect the beauty of our pastoral town. I am troubled by the amount of litter lining our roadways, and it occurred to me that if I took a garbage bag with me on my drive one day, I could make a substantial difference. What if we all did this Ñ just cleaning up our own roadway would make a considerable improvement!

Thurmanites’ special days

Celebrating anniversaries this week are John and Heidi Baker on April 27, Russ and Nereida Howe on April 28, and Jim and Becky Desourdy on May 2. Celebrating birthdays this week are Darrin Bolton on April 27, John Gereau, Shirley Jackson and Andrew Hall on April 29; George Baker and John Bederian on May 1; Dicky Germain and Jesse Arnold on May 2; plus Myrna Beldon, Katie Bederian and Nancy Kindred on May 3.

Millington celebrates milestone

Gretchen Millington would like to thank everyone who attended her 65th birthday celebration. Gretchen says it was an enjoyable time visiting with her family while dining at the Golden Corral. Three of her siblings attended as well as their spouses, also her daughter, son in-law, and two of her grandchildren, and one niece were among those joining in the celebration.

Curbside giveaway set for Lake George LAKE GEORGE Ñ Local citizens are warned that their residential landscape may look less than tidy this Saturday and Sunday Ñ but they shouldnÕ t worry, as itÕ s only temporary. This weekend, residents of the town are welcome to place their unwanted items at the curb for other citizens to adopt, town leaders said this week. The town of Lake George has designated Saturday April 27 and Sunday April 28 as Ò Free-to-All WeekendÓ during which town residents are encouraged to Ò free-cycleÓ items that are likely to be of use to others, Lake George Town Board member Marisa Muratori said. Ò The purpose of the event is an extension of the townÕ s initiatives to promote re-use, and to encourage the communityÕ s recycling efforts,Ó she said. Ò We encourage people to look at things in their house Ñ items that will be useful to someone else,Ó she continued. Ò This is intended to prevent things from going into the trash stream.Ó Mattresses, couches or upholstered items shouldnÕ t be put out by roadways, she said. Items may be put out on curbs beginning at 8 a.m. on Saturday. Also, residents must remove unclaimed items by the evening of Sunday April 28. This Free-to-All Weekend is the second occurring in Lake George. The first was held in October — and it was such a success that town residents urged officials to hold it twice per year rather than one as originally planned, Muratori said. Residents are also advised to consider participating in the Lake George Community Garage Sale, a separate initiative, on May 4 and 5. A $10 donation to the Lake George skateboard park includes a listing on the official garage sale map. Sign-up for the sale to benefit the skatepark is at the Lake George Village Hall. The deadline is April 30 to be listed on the map. To obtain information on the Free-To-All weekend, call the town hall at 668-5722. For details on the community garage sale, contact Carol Lee Labruzzo at 668-2038, or 588-4840; or via email:

Chester Gallery artists’ reception this weekend

Tannery Pond to host Rolling Roots Revue By Andy Flynn

CHESTERTOWN Ñ This weekend is the publicÕ s last opportunity to view the second exhibit of 3013 at the Art in Chestertown Gallery. The show, Ò Spring Awakening,Ó will be dismantled after the closing reception, to be held from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday April 27. The exhibit features 60 local and regional artists with a diverse exhibit of arts and crafts including paintings, drawings, photography, sculpture, fabric art, jewelry and pottery. Next up for the gallery is an exhibit of artwork by local high school juniors and seniors in the third annual Youth Visions Juried Art Show which starts Friday May 10. The gallery, located at 6378 state Rte. 9 in downtown Chestertown, is operated by the North Country Arts Center.

NORTH CREEK Ñ The Tannery Pond Community Center will present a performance by Wepecket IslandÕ s Rolling Roots Revue at 8 p.m. Friday, May 3. The Revue will feature Adirondack native Alex Smith, of Long Lake, who will join four other musicians Ñ Don Barry, Sherman Lee Dillon, Maria Fairchild and Ò RagtimeÓ Jack Radcliffe — playing blues guitar, fiddle tunes, oldtime songs, banjos and dulcimers. A lex Smith grew up in Long Lake. The son of a boatbuilder/writer/banjo player and a historian, Smith was immersed in folk tradition from a young age. Around the house, Pete Seeger and Bob Dylan were constantly present on the airwaves. Smith began writing and playing traditional folk songs at the age of 12 or 13, and has not stopped since. The community Smith grew up in is steeped in tradition, and also offers plenty of material for contemporary songs. The work of Adirondack folk legends Dan Berggren, Chris Shaw, and Peggy Lynn were extremely influential, as was Canadian artist Stan Rogers. It is the work of Rogers that Smith considers to be his greatest influence. His idea of promoting a sense of pride in the traditions of oneÕ s culture, while at the same time speaking about the issues presented to it in modern times, is the backbone of SmithÕ s music. The Rolling Roots Revue is a unique tour from Wepecket Island Records, based in New Bedford, Mass. The cost of the concert is $10 for adults, $5 for students and free for children under 12. For more information, call 251-2505.

Heritage tourism grants

GLENS FALLS Ñ An informational meeting to describe funding opportunities for heritage education and tourism projects in Warren County is set for 2 p.m. Monday, April 29 in Crandall Library. To be presented by the Champlain Valley National Heritage Partnership, the session is to describe criteria for the grants — available to non-profit groups and municipal entities Ñ as well as to detail the projects already funded by the organization.

Adirondack Journal - 9

Warrensburg Burghers wins two key baseball games WARRENSBURG Ñ The Burgher baseball team has earned two important early-season victories, spurring hopes in fans for their teamÕ s 2013 campaign. Wednesday April 17, Warrensburg beat North Warren 9-6 as young dual threat Shea Irish, a sophomore, pitched his first complete varsity game, featuring 11 strikeouts. Just a week earlier, Irish was two-for two with two runs and two RBIs in a 10-3 victory against the storied Lake George warriors, annually an Adirondack West Division leader. WarrensburgÕ s depth of talent was evident in the game against North Warren, as Beecher Baker tallied three for five and Wil Yarmowich contributed a double, a single and an RBI. Pitcher Justin Baird, another Burgher standout on both defense and offense, accounted for a double single and two RBIs. The Burghers’ offense took flight in the third inning, with six hits and six runs. But the gameÕ s drama wasnÕ t over. North Warren answered back in the fourth with five hits, scor-

ing four runs. In the fifth, Irish walked the first batter, then hung a high pitch over the plate and North Warren catcher Robert French slammed a two-run homer. But after two timeouts Ñ sharing conversations with coach Rex Reynolds — Irish got back into his groove and finished off the inning. Baird, Jeff Bentham and Beecher Baker then followed with hits, advancing the score to 8-6. Will Yarmowich added an insurance run in the top of the seventh inning. In the last several innings, Irish collected five of his 11 strikeouts, including all three outs in the 6th. A week earlier against Lake George, the Burghers capitalized on a blowout seven-run second inning to defeat the team thatÕ s been a dominant force in the league for decades. That inning started off with Burghers Justin Baird and Shea Irish receiving walks. Four of the next five batters then had hits Ñ Marcus Perrone and Joe Brunelle hit back-to-back RBI singles, then Pep Perrone and Wil Yarmowich followed with singles that also sent runners home. The scoreboard then tallied 5 runs.


Teammate Jeff Bentham and another batter got on base, and Shea Irish hit a 2-2 pitch up the middle for an RBI single. The inning ended as Warrior shortstop Connor McCoy, considered one of the best pitchers in the Adirondack League, made a diving catch for the third out. In the bottom half of second stanza, Lake GeorgeÕ s Cameron Scott hit a single, then Brandon Matthews followed it up with a two-run homer. Lake George pitching shut down the Burghers for the next two innings. In the fifth, the Burghers had the bases loaded with one out, and a hit pushed one additional run across the plate. Soon after Ñ with Lake George up at bat, Justin Baird hit a batter with an off-course pitch, that batter stole second, and was sent home by an RBI single hit by Matthews. Warrensburg scored two more runs in the top of the sixth, which ended their offense for the day. Baird struck out two and prompted a ground out in the latter half of the inning. In this contest, Marcus Perrone was 2 for 4 with two runs and an RBI. Joe Brunelle was 2 for 4 with one run and two RBIs. Coach Reynolds said he was pleased with his teamÕ s performance.

North Warren from page 1

nominating Committee, said Ellsworth was chosen for dedicating her energies not only to the children in her day care center, but towards many citizens of all ages in northern Warren County. Ellsworth reaches out to others through her many community activities, whether itÕ s collecting necessities to send to soldiers overseas, assisting veterans at home, or organizing patriotic local events, Repp said. Ò Joanne prepares our community children very well for the challenges of life Ñ and she does so much else in the community too,Ó she said. Railroads on Parade is a world-class model train museum that features award-winning layouts, with cityscapes crafted in intricate, realistic detail. The DunhamsÕ model train museum has been lauded as a major new development that is expected to boost tourism and bolster the local economy, as it attracts model train enthusiasts from around the nation to see its million-dollar layouts. Repp and others say that the DunhamsÕ commitment to locating and operating their model train enterprise in Pottersville represents a major investment and vote of confidence in Pottersville, which has in recent years has endured challenging economic circumstances. Several years ago, the Dunhams took a boxy empty building and transformed it into an inviting, ornately crafted landmark in town, Repp said. Ò TheyÕ ve done a beautiful job Ñ theyÕ ve put a lot into their enterprise,Ó Repp said. Dunham is the creator of the famed Citicorp train display in New York City as well as extensive model train layouts in Cincinnati, Chicago, Omaha and Williamsburg, Va. that have been viewed by more than 5 million people, and have been hailed as national attractions. The annual V.I.P. dinner which will be honoring Joanne Ellsworth and the Dunhams is set for Friday May 17 at Green Mansions Golf Club. Cocktails start at 5:30 p.m. and dinner follows about an hour

Barbara and Clarke Dunham’s passion for model trains and cityscapes as well as their remarkable talents in set design have lead to their worldclass model train layouts in top venues around the nation. Their enterprise, ‘Railroads on Parade’ museum in Pottersville, was named the 2013 Business of the Year in Northern Warren County — while Joanne Ellsworth, proprietor of a Chestertown daycare center and Commander of the local American Legion — was named VIP of the Year.

Conservation Park work day set

Andrew F. Jones

Andrew F. Jones was a local businessman who was a major source of employment in the Town of Horicon from the early 1900’s through the 1950’s. His businesses included dairy farming and milk delivery, strawberry gardens and was well known for his Maple Sugar Bush. In 1932 he tapped over 2,600 maple trees and the going rate for a gallon of maple syrup was a staggering $2.00! One of Andrew Jones lasting legacies has to be his masonry work. The house at the intersection of Palisades Road and Route 8 is a fine example. After adding an addition and stonework to an existing house, Jones and his wife owned and operated what became known as Stonehurst Hotel. In the mid 1940’s, Stonehurst was renamed Three Maples by George Culver, the new owner. Today locals and visitors know it as Stoneleigh. Another fine example of his masonry work is the Stone Barn located at the head of Brant Lake.

Volunteers are now being sought to help upgrade Bolton Conservation Park on a work day scheduled for 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday May 11. The existing gardens are to be expanded by 12 to 16 beds, gates will be replaced and fencing repaired. Also, new mulch needs to be applied to all paths. Volunteeers are asked to bring any chainsaws, clippers, shovels and rakes they have to get the job done. Outside work will include restoring and expanding trails Ñ including adding mulch and installing signs along pathways. Tools needed for this job include pointed shovels, post-hole diggers, sturdy rakes and ATVs with the capacity of hauling mulch to trail sites. Ted and Jane Caldwell will be grilling hamburgers and hot dogs Ñ and volunteers are welcome to bring any additional food. For details, call Ted or Jane at 644-2343.

A large group of runners from New YorkÕ s Capital Region, all dressed in purple, also had a mission in their run Sunday in the Lake George race Ñ a dual purpose, their organizers said. Members of Ò Team Gabby Gabs,Ó they were running to raise awareness about the Gabby Rocco Foundation, an organization that provides emotional support and financial aid to families who are grieving a child. Each of the runners had a photo attached to their sleeve to remember a departed loved one. They also wore patches honoring the Boston Marathon victims as well. The founders of the Gabby Rocco Foundation, Jean and Peter Rocco of Halfmoon, were among those in the footrace that included more than 300 finishers and hundreds more witnessing the event.

The Trout Where-Abouts Girls on grass T

he cold weather has kept the stream temperatures down so my trout fishing hasn’t been very good. Not one to waste any time though, IÕ m trying to cut and split some firewood to get ahead of the curve. Working out by my pasture, I get to see the slow changes in the green up of the vegetation. I see the brown dormant grasses slowly turning green, and young clover plants coming to life. As a grazing specialist, this gets me psyched up! I see the leaves of the grass plant reaching out and grabbing all that sunBy Rich Redman light; photosynthesis underway. For grazing farmers who raise beef and dairy cows, itÕ s a good sign. Soon grazing season will be here and the cows will be going out to pasture! The cows are happy. They get out of the barn and out on green grass. The farmer is even happier. The animals get to go outside, barn chores are reduced, manure is getting spread by the cows instead of the spreader and feed is not being hauled into the barn; freedom of a sort. Now it’s time for field chores! Over the last 25 years grazing management has taken hold in this area. Numerous dairy and beef operations have discovered rotational grazing management as a way to raise their animals. Rotational grazing is not just opening the barn door and letting the cows run rampant on a large pasture field and selecting what they want and leaving the rest. Rotational grazing is an organized system where animals are moved to a new small pasture, called a paddock on a daily basis. Grasses are grazed when they reach a height of about 8 inches and grazed down to about 4 inches in height. The 4 inches that are fed are of a high quality, and the remaining 4 inches of leaf, are long enough to allow the solar collecting leaves to capture the sunÕ s energy and turn it into chemical energy. This allows the plant to grow and thrive, in addition to storing energy in the roots. If the plant is grazed too low, the leaf is very small, and photosynthesis takes much longer. The growing point for the plant must start from the base of the plant and energy is taken from the roots robbing the plant of energy and increasing the time it takes to get the leaf growth back to 8 inches. The species of grasses growing in the pasture can actually be manipulated by grazing management. When you graze close to the ground, tight like horses do, this leads to more bluegrass, and less pasture tonnage production per acre. If you allow more time between grazing cycles and maintain a proper grazing height of 4 inches or more, you can have clover and orchard grass, and other species, which favor a longer rest period. With intensive management, overall pasture tonnage is increased meaning less pasture acres are needed. This means there could be more acreage available for other crops, like hay, annual crops such as corn or even grains. I would recommend having additional hay acres available. The finicky way the weather is acting now days, you may need the additional hay acres for grazing when things get dry, or to feed out to supplement the dry pasture times. Worst case would be that you have additional hay acres and that has never been a problem for a farmer. Having surplus hay for sale is always good! By moving dairy cows daily, the bovines get fresh actively growing grass and clovers in their diet. The high protein feed from pasture along with hay and grain fed in the barn makes a balanced ration that helps keep milk production costs down. Beef operations depending on the level of management intensity, may move the cows every day or up to every 2 or 3 days. The overall goal of rotational grazing management is to get quality feed to help the young growing animals gain about 2 lbs. per day if the pasture is managed properly. Quality feed gets quality animals, and animal products such as milk and meat. Other benefits to the farmer include: • Nutrient rich manure is spread directly on actively growing grass by the best possible means; direct deposit! This reduces labor costs. • Fuel costs associated with manure spreading and barn cleaning are reduced. • Electricity costs associated with barn and gutter cleaning are lessened. In many cases milk production increases depending on the quality of stored feed. In other cases milk production may drop, but overall profitability increases, depending on management. For the average Joe or Jane trying to make a living, there are numerous benefits. Some of these include reduced nutrient runoff and less soil erosion. The soil is protected by a permanent sod cover, and the stream banks get fenced out protecting aquatic areas. Wildlife habitat is also created and/or improved. Overall soil quality improves and carbon is stored due to the increasing organic matter buildup in the soils. The infiltration rate of the soil, due to improved soil structure is increased. So during a rainstorm there tends to be less runoff and more infiltration and water storage in the organic matter. The consumer benefits too! Grazing beef farms along with Community Supported Agriculture enterprises (CSAÕ s) are increasing in our area. This means the consumer has a choice of purchasing grass-fed beef and locally grown vegetables, fruits, jams, and other farm fresh, locally grown products. All of these products are available to you from a farm stand owned by a family farm in our community. As citizens and consumers, we should be encouraging our schools to buy local agricultural products so our kids get quality, locally grown foods. We need to teach our children about local agriculture and its importance in our area. Milk doesnÕ t just come from the store, and meat is from a beef cow, not the deli department. So the next time you are driving down the road and see some dairy cows on pasture grazing, remember they are Girls on Grass! They are making milk from quality feed gathered from the nutrients of the soil and the energy of the sun.




ost rivers and streams are still running high, with water temperatures about average for the season. Most of the ponds will have shed their ice cover by the weekend but water temperatures will only be in the mid 30Õ s. As water temperatures increase, fish should become more active. The smaller, shallower ponds will be producing first, although water temperatures will need to warm up some before the deeper ponds and lakes turn on. Lake trout and salmon will be the first fish to be active, while brook trout will take a bit longer. However, it will only take a change of a few degrees in water temperatures to turn them on. The annual smelt run appears to be on track following the Full Moon, which is set to occur on Friday, April 25. Following the full moon, trout and salmon will begin feeding actively in and around the inlets and tributaries of the lakes and ponds for the next week or so. Stocking trucks have not yet delivered many trout to areaÕ s streams and rivers, and in the smaller streams and mountain brooks, native brook trout are still in their winter mode. Trout will be slow to react to offerings, and likely sheltered among the rocks and under the overhanging trees. On the rivers, anglers will find the best action in the deeper pools or at the base of falls or dams, where air temperatures will have a greater effect on water temperatures. Think like a fish, and look around, be observant and see what’s going on. Are there flies in the air, or schools of minnows in the shallows? On the streams, seek out areas that provide both food and shelter, and you’ll find the fish. As a result of the floods, many local rivers and streams are still chocked with large accumulations of debris and logjams. These are excellent holding areas for trout, but be careful of your footing. Go where the people aren’t! Large fish are easily spooked, so try to maintain a low profile to avoid spooking the fish. Watch your shadows, and be careful of disturbing rocks or downed trees in or near the water. Fish will pick up on the vibrations and spook easily. If you do spook them, rest the pool and try again in about 20 minutes, fish have short memories. On the ponds, avoid banging or bouncing around in the boat/ canoe, minimize oar splash and be sure to wear your PFD; itÕ s now the law. Always cast to a pool from further away then you think is necessary, and try to be accurate. There is nothing more frustrating than getting hung up on the first cast and ruining a potentially productive area. When retrieving a fly or lure, vary the retrieve and change the speed and depth. Twitch the offering, to give it an erratic motion. If it isnÕ t working, change lures. Experiment, and figure out a way to trigger their strike response. Most of all, take your time, relax and have some fun, fishing is not supposed to be a chore. It is not intended to be a contest between anyone but the angler and the fish. And be sure to take a friend, or a kid along with you. Angling adventures are more enjoyable if they are shared, and the stories are more likely to be believable.

Erickson, Ò Exercise increases the amount of blood going to the brain,Ó which means, Ò that more of the important nutrients necessary for the brain to function are distributed.Ó Researchers discovered the more often participants walked, the more memory they retained, and those who most had about half as much risk of suffering memory problems as those who walked the least. Humans can expect to lose memory as they age. It is a normal function of aging. However, research has determined that increased exercise also helps improve the portions of the brain that support memory function. According to the researchers, the earlier you begin exercising, the better. Ò But itÕ s never too late!Ó according to researchers, Ò any amount of exercise you do will help.Ó It is interesting to note that the loss of short term memory has also been linked to stress and fatigue. It has been well established that time spent in nature, or even viewing natural scenes has a soothing and therapeutic affect on human. Our senses are exercised and enlivened in natural settings, where we can feel the breeze, smell the air and hear the wind and the water. The influences of flowing waters, air quality, mountains and other landscape features of our region contain a setting that is particularly restorative. Not only has it proven to be physically beneficial, it has also contributed to the spirit of our visitors. The region has long been recognized for its ability to help recharge the human battery, reduce fatigue and provide a greater mental clarity and physical vigor. Often, it takes only a simple walk in the woods to boost circulation and clear your senses. The fact that we are more alive and at ease in nature should come as no surprise, afterall human beings have spent 99 percent of their evolutionary time as hunter, gathers. As a nomadic society, we were indelibly linked to the land. It should come as no surprise that when we return to it, we are more natural and at ease. It is afterall, a key component of our heredity.

Go take a hike, just for the health of it

A recent study conducted at the University of Pittsburgh concludes that walking isnÕ t just good for your waistline, it actually has benefits that can help your memory, as well. Researchers followed nearly 300 participants for over a decade and concluded that walking six to nine miles a week may actually stop your brain from shrinking as you age. According to the studyÕ s author Kirk
