Fighting Spirits moving to N.H.


‘Happy Hour’ book to debut

By Katherine Clark LAKE GEORGE Ñ After a successful first season in New YorkÕ s Adirondack Mountains, the Lake George Fighting Spirits Junior ÒA Ó hockey team will begin its second season representing a new town in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Fighting Spirits Team Manager Rod Simmons said he and his wife, Lisa, are excited for the new opportunities the Waterville Valley, N.H. location will afford the athletes. ÒI tÕ s an unbelievable opportunity for our athletes,Ó Rod said. ÒI tÕ s conducive to everything we try to promote for them. There is a large hockey culture there, and we will be in a central location for area colleges to send recruits.Ó The Simmonses found the venue while scouting for a new home for the Spirits over the past few weeks. They were considering several new locations, including Massena and Saranac Lake. ÒW e picked a place that has the most to offer our athletes in housing and educational opportunities,Ó R od said. Rod was looking in areas CONTINUED ON PAGE 14

Photo by Thom Randall LAKE GEORGE — With flourishes of pageantry and pride, nearly 200 people formally celebrated Warren CountyÕ s bicentennial in a ceremony June 12. The event, featuring a staged meeting of the Warren County Board of Supervisors, was held in the municipalityÕ s historic headquarters, the Old County Court-

house in Lake George. To begin the session, Warren County supervisors were ceremoniously marched into the courthouse, led by French & Indian War re-enactors, a county American Legion color guard, and a bagpiper. Conducting the meeting was Warren County Board of Supervisors Chairman Kevin Geraghty, who welcomed the audience that filled the well-preserved brick courthouse. Outside, dozens watched the proceedings on closed-circuit television.

‘Happy Hour’ book release June 26 By Thom Randall WARRENSBURG Ñ While most people think of hiking and canoeing as recreation in the Adirondacks, thereÕ s another aspect that a local duo has explored. Sisters Kim and Pam Ladd have spent years visiting and evaluating taverns in the Adirondack Park, and theyÕ ve published an account of their adventures in the book Ò Happy Hour in the High Peaks.Ó The volume is to debut Wednesday, June 26 at Basil & Wicks Restaurant & Bar with a Meet the Authors party, and all are invited. The tavern is located at 3195 state Rte. 28 just south of North Creek. The Ladds launched the idea for the book while the two were on a vacation several years ago, then refined the concept while sharing drinks and conversation on Pam LaddÕ s deck at her house in Warrensburg, Thurman resident Kim Ladd said. Their enterprise grew into a blog and a regular column on the Adirondack Almanack website Ñ writings that reveal the LaddsÕ observations, laced with humor, of the social side of the Adirondacks. The Ladds toured about 120 taverns over two and a half years, and theyÕ ve chosen 46 of the bars Ñ a sly nod to the famed 46 high peaks of the Adirondacks — to profile in their book. Their choice of their top hotspots was based primarily on the friendliness of the staff and customers, Pam Ladd said. Ò We asked ourselves the question, Ô Is this

someplace people could come into and feel comfortable?Õ Ó she said. The volume also includes 46 recipes for drinks that either the two have concocted, or they are the signature drinks of venues they visited. The book is accompanied by a Ò Happy Hour PassportÓ Ñ available on the LaddsÕ companion website Ñ which readers can present to the bartenders at the 46 chosen venues for drink discounts, Kim Ladd said. Ò Our readers can get a stamped validation of their Passport at each of the 46 taverns, and it serves as a great conversation starter,Ó she said. The Happy Hour in the High Peaks website also features an array of High Peaks Happy Hour accessories, including hats and T-shirts, she added. One of their favorite taverns was T.R.Õ s Lounge at the Holiday Inn at Lake George, Kim Ladd said. Ò The bartenders here introduce the hotel guests to local people, so everyone feels comfortable,Ó she said. Kim Ladd added that their research for the book yielded a lot of memorable experiences, ranging from an impromptu marriage proposal to discovering remote towns. “Our experiences made us really appreciate the whole Adirondack Park Ñ we went to places we wouldnÕ t have otherwise visited,Ó she said. Pam Ladd shared the enthusiasm. Ò WeÕ ve made some real solid friends through this,Ó she added.

‘Dot & Johnstock’ fundraiser this weekend at Stony Creek Inn By Thom Randall STONY CREEK Ñ The annual charity fundraiser held by Dot Bartell and John Fickel, long-time proprietors of the Stony Creek Inn, is set for 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday June 22. The fest features live music, dancing, food, raffles, an auction and various other activities. The event, affectionately named “Dot & Johnstock,” reflects a sense of community among the Adirondack-area musicians and artists. The fest also celebrates the rural alternative culture that has flourished in the hills since the late 1970s — and has been a mainstay at the Stony Creek Inn over the decades that Bartell and Fickel have operated the inn. The fundraiser was launched by friends of Bartell and Fickel in 2008 when both were facing cancer treatments, and the event was immensely successful. Since then, the duo have continued the fest as an annual fundraiser for various charities Ñ and over these years, that same outpouring of generosity has benefited AmandaÕ s House, CindyÕ s Retreat, and Southern Adirondack Musicians Fund, Bartell said. The latter two are the recipients of the proceeds from this yearÕ s event.

Musicians and bands from the region are to be performing all day long. Also featured at the event is an extensive silent auction with goods and services from area businesses and a selection of works created by area artists. CindyÕ s Retreats offers programs and getaways for people enduring cancer treatments, and the MusiciansÕ Fund provides emergency relief to musicians with limited resources, helping them get through difficult times, Dot Bartell said. Ò Each year, everybodyÕ s been very generous Ñ not only those attending but others sending in money and contributing items and services for the raffles and the auction,” she said. Bartell added that the event serves as a reunion of cancer survivors and their family members, as well as those receiving grants from the musiciansÕ fund. Ò Besides being a lot of fun, itÕ s an opportunity for people to get out from under that web of cancer and talk freely about their experiences,” Bartell said. A local man who restores vehicles will be offering rides in his rare 1925 Stearns-Knight Coupe, and the $5 per-passenger fee will be donated to the charities, Bartell said. Ò Harry will be giving rides around the block Ñ a Stony Creek block Ñ three miles long,Ó she quipped. Bartell also noted that Ò Dot & JohnstockÓ T-shirts, donated by

local resident Kathy Garrow, will be available for purchase. CindyÕ s Retreat, developed by the late Cindy Ginsburg, provides emotional and spiritual healing for women and men, living with and beyond cancer, with weekend programs at Silver Bay and Roaring Brook Ranch of Lake George. Donations from those not attending are welcome. Make checks out to CindyÕ s Retreat or the Southern Adirondack Musicians Fund and mail to: Stony Creek Inn, P.O. Box 184, Stony Creek, NY 12878. Receipts will be provided for documenting tax deductions. Total proceeds of the event will be shared equally among the two charities, Bartell said. For further information, contact Bartell at 696-2394 or Garrow at 696-4563 or: Ô BackbeatÕ follows at the Inn The fun doesnÕ t end Saturday at the Stony Creek Inn. On Sunday June 23, the band Backbeat will be featured beginning at 6:30 p.m., along with the Inn’s Mexican Menu which is traditionally offered Sunday nights. Backbeat features saxophonist Al Vatalaro, formerly of the acclaimed Ernie Williams band, Bartell said. “These guys burn up the dance floor with their classic rock ‘n roll from the 1960s and 1950s,Ó she said.

Former Finch land classification public hearings begin By McKenna Kelly NEWCOMB Ñ Representatives of the Adirondack Park Agency (APA) held their third public hearing on the classification of former Finch Pruyn lands on Monday, June 17, in the Newcomb Central School auditorium. They presented seven different classification options, which the audience was allowed to give feedback on over the course of the evening. The areas in question, which New York state recently purchased, are located within the towns of Minerva, Newcomb, and Indian Lake. They include the Essex Chain Lakes (17,320 acres), the Indian River (925 acres), OK Slip Falls (2,780 acres), and Open Space Conservancy Tract (160 acres). The surrounding areas of the Vanderwhacker Mountain Wild Forest, Blue Mountain Wild Forest, and Hudson Gorge Primitive Area are also up for reclassification. APA officials were clear they has no classification preference, and is relying heavily on public opinion in forming its decision. There are seven classifications possible for Adirondack land; Wilderness, Primitive, Canoe, Wild Forest, State Administrative, Historic, and Intensive Use. Of those seven, only the first four are being considered. Exact definitions of each are available in the Adirondack State Land Master Plan, which is available for free on the APAÕ s

website. For the sake of brevity, the differences between the four are how much influence man as already had on the land, and what uses of the land are most appropriate for its conservation. Wilderness is the most restrictive classification, and Intensive Use is the most liberal. Under all plans, the Hudson Gorge Primitive Area will be reclassified as Wilderness. Alternative 1A would designate most of the land as Wilderness, with a small portion of Wild Forest on the western side of the Essex Chain Lakes and Indian River tracts. Alternative 1B would designate all the land as Wilderness. Alternative 2 designates most of the land as Primitive, with some Wilderness and Wild Forest areas. Alternative 3A would incorporate Wild Forest, Canoe, and Wilderness areas. Alternative 3B is similar, but with significantly less Wilderness. Alternative 4A splits the land between Wilderness and Wild Forest. Alternative 4B does the same, but with an added Special Management classification that could restrict access to the Wild Forest slightly more than would be normal. There were 49 volunteer speakers at the hearing. An overwhelming majority of them favored a Wild Forest classification for most of the lands in question. The buzzwords for the evening were Ò survivalÓ and Ò access.Ó Many

were worried about the economic viability of the area and felt that Wild Forests, which provide the most recreational options, would bring an influx of tourists and summer residents to the surrounding towns. Newcomb Town Supervisor George Canon expressed hope that his town could become a “major destination and economic benefit” if the state went that route. Randy Douglas, chairman of the Essex County Board of Supervisors, advocated for a Wild Forest accessible to the Ò young, disabled, and young at heart.Ó Wild Forests allow motorized vehicles and mountain bikes under certain circumstances, while Primitive, Canoe, and Wilderness areas either forbid or severely restrict them. With a network of roads already in place in the former Finch Pruyn land, many saw no reason why they should not be utilized further. This would make accessibility easier for people of all ages and ability types. The elderly, disabled, and others with limited mobility would find it impossible to enjoy the land if it had a

Some former Finch lands now open to public ALBANY — Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo June 12 announced that for the first time in 100 years, the public can now access for recreational purposes the Hudson and Cedar Rivers within the new lands recently added to the Forest Preserve. Parking areas, public motor vehicle access, a hiking route to the Cedar River and waterway access sites for non-motorized watercraft are designated and available for public use on these newly acquired public lands in the towns of Newcomb and Minerva in Essex County and Indian Lake in Hamilton County. “The addition of these 7,200 acres to the state’s extensive Forest Preserve will help drive tourism in the Adirondacks region,Ó Cuomo said. Ò Starting today, this land along the Hudson and Cedar Rivers, which has been closed to the public for the past century, will open for New Yorkers to enjoy this summer and fall.Ó Signs and kiosks located at both the Boat Launch in Newcomb and on the newly acquired properties provide information about the lands and the premier paddling and fishing opportunities now open to the public along the Hudson and Cedar Rivers. A map depicting the lands that are currently open to the public; the location of parking areas, public motor vehicle access and hiking routes and waterway access sites is posted on signs and information kiosks and is available on DECÕ s website at George Canon, Supervisor Town of Newcomb, said, Ò We are looking forward to the many visitors who will come to the area to enjoy this new recreational opportunity and the economic benefits they will bring to our community.” The public access currently provided through the Interim Access Plan is temporary, allowing the public to enjoy the lands this summer and fall prior to the final classification of the lands by the Adirondack Park Agency. The Interim Access Plan does not in any way influence or predict the result of classification process. Public access and recreational opportunities have been outlined in an Interim Access Plan for the Hudson and Cedar Rivers and surrounding lands, available on the DEC website. “This is the first step in providing public access to these lands, which may bring additional tourism revenues to our community and the region,Ó said Brian Wells, Supervisor of the town of Indian Lake. Ò Future public access will be determined by the land classification and the unit management plan. I encourage all to participate in the public review process, provide comment and attend one of the APA classification meetings, such as the one scheduled in Indian Lake on June 25.Ó The APA has proposed seven possible land classifications for the Essex Chain Tract and surrounding lands. The proposed land classifications and the schedule for public comment may be found on the APA web site: Public access facilities outlined in the interim plan have been established where existing areas are cleared and infrastructure is already in place. Recreation users will need to follow existing paths to carry around rapids when traveling down the Hudson River and camping is allowed more than 150 feet from any road, trail, spring, stream, pond or other body of water. Marked trails, camping sites and portages will be designated and constructed once DEC, in consultation with APA, completes a Stewardship Plan later this summer. This Stewardship Plan will identify the location for a new trail for the public to safely access OK Slip Falls, designated camping sites along the Hudson and Cedar Rivers, and the official locations of portages around challenging stretches of the Hudson River for paddlers.

Rafting trips to go through town

By Lynn Smith

Free disposal days at landfill

The Warrensburg Town Board voted June 12 to designate two days to dispose of large items such as furniture, tires, stoves, refrigerators, and other similar things at the landfill. Saturday June 29 and Sunday June 30 are the free disposal days for these items, usually accepted at set fees. Normal rates prevail for normal household trash. This town cleanup day is for Warrensburg residents only Ñ drivers’ licenses will be examined for compliance with the residency requirement.

but moving waters that people of all skill levels can enjoy, especially in the upper portion. The river also contains numerous rapids and shallow rocky areas. Depending on water levels, the rapids are mostly rated Class 1, 2 or 2+. Under the certain water levels a few of the rapids may rate Class 3, such as Long Rapids and Ord Falls. During low water conditions a considerable amount of portaging, dragging and lining of kayaks and canoes will be required especially in the lower portion of the river. Less adventurous paddlers can take advantage of a long stretch of flat water above and below 28N, and the Blackwell Stillwater section above and below the Iron Bridge Landing, which also provides access to the lower Goodnow River. Trips shorter than the 12 miles can be taken by paddling from Harris Lake to the Iron Bridge Landing or from the Iron Bridge Landing to the Indian River Landing. Inexperienced paddlers should make use of the flatwater sections, carry around all rapids or hire a guide to lead their trip. The flatwater sections also provide for good fishing opportunities for smallmouth bass, northern pike and panfish. In the stretch just south of Route 28N anglers may find walleye and an occasional largemouth bass. The Hudson River between the Cedar River and the Indian River also contains brown and rainbow trout. The Town of Newcomb Boat Launch on the Harris Lake

(Beach) Road is the best location to launch canoes, kayaks and rafts. Parking is available at this location and in the nearby parking lot at the Town of Newcomb Beach. Information about the available access, including maps, is provided on a kiosk at the boat launch. The public can drive to a parking area located approximately 0.9 mile from the Iron Bridge Landing. Paddlers need to carry their canoes and kayaks between the parking area and the landing on the river. Information about the available access, including maps, is provided on a kiosk at the parking area. The Iron Bridge parking area can be reached by taking the Goodnow Road, off Route 28N in Newcomb, approximately 5.5 miles south to the southeast corner of Goodnow Flow. Turn left on to the access road and the parking area is two miles away at the end of the access road. DEC recommends that only high clearance pickups and SUVs use the roadway at this time. Another parking area is located at the end of the Chain Lakes Road, approximately three miles north of Route 28 in Indian Lake. The public can walk the 0.8 mile on the roadway between the gate at the parking areas and the landing above the confluence of the Hudson and Indian Rivers. Information about the available access, including maps, is provided on a kiosk at the parking area.

Cedar River

The Cedar River, Pine Lake, Mud Pond, Clear Pond, Corner Pond and the surrounding lands can all be accessed from the same parking area at the

The Sacandaga Outdoor Center of Hadley is likely to soon offer rafting trips down the Schroon River through downtown Warrensburg, according to information released at the June town board meeting. The trips are to begin at the townÕ s Swan St. well property, along the river. John Duncan, owner of the Sacandaga Outdoor enterprise, said he hopes to begin these trips as soon as late June or early July Ñ pending acquisition of insurance coverage.

Scout Lance Bedell honored

At their June 12 meeting, the Warrensburg Town Board honored local teenager Lance Bedell for achieving his Eagle Scout status. He was recognized by town Supervisor Kevin Geraghty as well as Deputy Supervisor John Alexander, who earned the Eagle Scout distinction decades ago. As his major Eagle Scout project, Bedell constructed an access ramp at the Warrensburg American Legion Hall. The upgrade now allows veterans with mobility restrictions to easily enter

Adirondack Journal - 5 the hall. The project also included rebuilding a roof over the entrance. The work, accomplished by Bedell, his fellow scouts, parents and their friends, has been praised by Legion and scout officials.

Business Alliance, fire co. funded

The Town Board granted the newly formed Warrensburg Business Alliance $552 from town occupancy tax receipts to advertise their Ò Taste of WarrensburgÓ event that was held June 19. Also, the Warrensburg Volunteer Fire Co. was awarded $500 towards fireworks displays to occur at the group’s annual Smoke EatersÕ Jamboree, scheduled for late July.

end of the Chain Lakes Road. It is a 3.5-mile walk from the parking area along a road to the Cedar River landing. Paddlers can enjoy the flatwater section of the Cedar River above and below the landing. The rapids above and below the flatwater section and the lack of carries prevents paddlers from accessing the upper reaches of the Cedar River and the Hudson River from the landing. Paddlers can also enjoy the four ponds on the forest preserve lands south of the Cedar River. Anglers can fish the Cedar River for brook and brown trout. Anglers can also fish for native lake trout and stocked rainbow trout on Clear Pond or stocked brook trout and panfish on Pine Lake. Float planes previously restricted to landing on the western portion of Pine Lake can now land anywhere on the lake. Additional information on the recreational opportunities on these and other nearby forest preserve and conservation easement lands can be found on the DEC Eastern Adirondacks Trail Information web page at http://www.dec. The Essex Chain Lakes Tract and the Indian River Tract are part of the former Finch, Pruyn & Co. lands purchased by state from The Nature Conservancy (TNC).

Adirondack Journal Editorial

Graduation advice from the staff here at Denton Publications

From reporter Katherine Clark: Ò Right now is a time of endless possibilities. Which can seem liberating or crushing. Looking back it is hard to imagine that my classmates and I at 18 and younger were capable of making the decisions that determined the course of our entire lives. Our lives went in different directions based on the colleges we attended, the majors we picked and changed or the jobs we were hired into. At the time that I graduated high school I knew exactly what I wanted to do with my life but I really had no idea how I would get there. Everyone told me journalism is a dying field that will have little to no jobs by the time I graduated. The fact that I was able to start writing professionally within a year of graduating college and stay within the Adirondack Park still amazes me. My best advice to graduating seniors is to keep your mentors close, stay true to your passions, choose friends who will be a true support to your goals in life and career and not an anchor against the current of your success, and be open to taking paths you might not have planned to take.Ó From Assistant Managing Editor Andy Flynn: Ò Do what you love. ItÕ s not always easy in this world, with bills and the need for health insurance. Sometimes a higher-paying job can take you on a side trip of sorts, but always strive for finding that happy place. Life is too short.Ó From Valley News Editor Keith Lobdell: Ò I am going to take a pair of statements I have heard from the former NFL player, coach and current football analyst Herm Edwards. The first is, ‘nothing good EVER happens after 2 a.m.’ Be young, have fun, but know your limitations. The second is, Ô donÕ t press send!Õ Think before you blog, tweet, post, message, whatever. Once you press send, you can hit delete as quickly as possible, but what you just sent is out there forever. Make sure that nothing in your youth ever comes back to haunt you in the real world.Ó From Publisher Dan Alexander: “Many attitudes regarding careers and work-life expectations have changed since I left high school in the early 1970s, but if I had one piece of advice to offer it would be this. Dedication to the job youÕ ve accepted and recognizing the job is not about you itÕ s about the goals of the organization you work for. By putting your organization first you’ll never have to worry about career advancements, your talents will be sought out by others as recognition of your efforts. No task is too small to put your name on and a positive giving attitude will still take you farther then a self centered Ô WhatÕ s-in-it-for-meÕ approach ever will.Ó From Times of Ti Editor Fred Herbst: Ò Graduates, thereÕ s bad news and good news on your commencement. The bad news is you are no where near as special, talented or gifted as people are telling you today. In fact, you Ñ like the rest of us Ñ are pretty ordinary. The goods news is that ordinary people accomplish extraordinary things every day. They raise families. They build communities. They educate others. They defend our country. The list of extraordinary accomplishments by ordinary people is endless. They do it through hard work, sacrifice and commitment. No less is expected of you.” From Managing Editor John Gereau: Ò One of the best graduation speeches I have had the privilege of hearing was delivered in 2012 by actor Salman Kahn to the graduating class at MIT. In summary, Kahn told the graduates to live life like it was their second time through it Ñ like a genie magically appeared before them at age 70 and allowed them to travel back to age 18 and do it all over again, affording the opportunity to change the parts they later regretted. As you travel along the rocky road of life, keep that advice in mind. How would you treat those you love and what life altering decisions would you make if it were your second chance to do so? Lastly, treat your parents and your knees kindly. You will miss them both when they are gone.Ó

Turning Back the Pages By Jean Hadden 100 Years Ago - June 1913 Boy evades trampling

Riding down WarrensburghÕ s Main Street on his bicycle at a rapid gate and looking backward over his shoulder, John Straight, 8, shot directly between Fred RaymondÕ s team of spirited horses standing in front of McGannÕ s Store. The horses did not take kindly to the intrusion and began dancing frantically, their steel-shod hoofs making a tattoo on the brick pavement that sounded like a bunch of firecrackers going off, which many people believed was the cause of the racket. With the horses dancing over him and all around him it may be considered to be a miracle that the boy was not killed, but he fortunately escaped the feet of the animals and the wagon passed over him without touching him. He came out of the mix-up with only a small cut on his face by the side of his left eye and a few bumps on his head. He was taken to his nearby home where Dr. Griffin attended and patched him up. JohnÕ s bicycle was smashed to atoms. Mr. Raymond was sitting in his wagon when the collision occurred and had the reins in his hands. With considerable difficulty he brought the frightened horses under control and stopped them near HammondÕ s Drug Store. (Note: John Straight lived in the Ò Wills Block,Ò the stone house just north of the Merrill-Magee House and he later went on, as I recall, to owning the town taxi service. Hammond’s store was directly across Main St. from todayÕ s Marco PoloÕ s Pizza.)

Male suffragette commits suicide

A determined male suffragette, waving a flag of suffragette colors and brandishing a revolver, committed suicide by flinging himself in front of August BelmontÕ s four- year-old horse Tracery during the race at Ascot, England for the valuable Ascot Gold Cup and deprived the American sportsman a good chance of capturing the trophy. The man was trampled to death on the spot but the horse and rider, who both fell to the ground, were unscathed.

The king and queen of England with their entire entourage were present at the races. (Note: Suffragettes, followers of Emmeline Pankhurst, were members of an early 20th century movement in the UK and USA to secure rights for women to vote Ñ and their demonstrations were often violent.)

Verdict of ‘Not Guilty’

The case of Leonard Frazier of Horicon came up for trial June 18, 1913. Frazier was accused of shooting at F.G. Thomas, a game protector whose home is in Ticonderoga. The shooting took place last fall in the Town of Horicon. There has been much local interest in this case. Thomas was trailing Frazier and his two companions, Samuel Girard and Fred Kingsley, believing that they were hounding deer. Girard and Kingsley were indicted on the same charge and their cases are being tried separately. The next day at Warren County Court in Lake George, the defendant Leonard Frazier proved an alibi and was found Not Guilty. The charges against Girard and Kingsley were dismissed by Judge Raley.

The good life

Arthur Lewis Tubbs of Philadelphia, formerly of Warrensburgh and Glens Falls, will sail from New York Wednesday, July 1, 1913 on the Cunard Line steamer Carpathia, for a two-month tour of Europe, accompanied by a small party of friends. They will visit Italy, Switzerland, Holland, Germany, France and England. On Aug. 30, 1913 they will sail from Liverpool on the Mauretania to return home by Sept. 5, 1913 to New York. (Note: Arthur Lewis Tubbs, born in Glens Falls, was the youngest brother of Warrensburgh News editor, John Livingston Tubbs. He became established as Music and Dramatic Critic on the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin and wrote poetry for leading magazines of the era. He also wrote plays, dramas of rural life, many of which were performed at the Music Hall in Warrensburgh.)

Help sought to build playground

The Warrensburg Elementary School playground redevelopment project is nearing its goal, with construction now about six weeks away. Warrensburg Central School PTSA members and officials have coordinated the project to plan and raise funds for the playground, which is to be constructed with local volunteers from Friday Aug. 2 through Sunday Aug. 4. Work on the venue, which is to be ADA-compliant, is to begin at 8 a.m. on those days. PTSA officials are now seeking volunteers to donate their time and talent or to provide refreshments. Those seeking to help out are asked to contact PTSA Treasurer Adrienne Bell at 260-6834 as soon as possible. Encouraging local parents and others to volunteer, Adrienne Bell said that it is not difficult, regardless of prior experience, for people to help build playgrounds. The equipment for the Warrensburg Elementary playground is to be provided as a kit, with step-by-step instructions. She has assured PTSA members that this is the third one she has helped construct.

Graduation caution voiced

Warrensburg Central School will hold graduation ceremonies at 7 p.m. June 21 for the Class of 2013, and hundreds of students and their friends are expected to be celebrating over the weekend. Graduation is routinely followed by parties, so parents and other adults are urged to do what they can to keep our area youth safe. Those who hear of an underage drinking party, do the right thing and call the Anonymous Tip Line at 761-9800.

Local culture expo successful

This last weekendÕ s Thurman Station Wilderness Heritage Corridor Showcase Preview, an exposition of local rural culture, was considered a substantial success. The full Wilderness Heritage expo is to be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday July 27, and will feature about 40 businesses, organizations and artisans from the towns surrounding the Thurman Station Ñ Stony Creek, Warrensburg and Thurman. The event is to showcase the wide variety of goods, services and entertainment that characterize the region. Dan Berggren and Ed Lowman will be performing original Adirondack folk music, fine food is to be provided by Willows Bistro of Warrensburg as well as the beloved Stony Creek Inn. Various artisans will be on hand, selling or demonstrating their work Ñ including wool spinning by the Serendipity Spinners, plus silver jewelry and stained-glass stepping stones on sale. Authors will be at the event for book-signing. Local farms are also to be represented with products including eggs, poultry, goat cheese, vegetables and maple items. Nearby, Adirondack Ambiance gallery Ñ which features

by the Rev. Thomas J. Hunter at the Baptist parsonage the morning of June 14, 1913. They were attended by Miss Maude Griffin and Henry Griffin, cousins of the groom. The happy couple left on the 8 oÕ clock trolley for a wedding trip.

Flies weren’t the culprits

The Bluebottle Stable fly, charged by Rockefeller Institute investigators with responsibility for infantile paralysis, has been exonerated by scientists of the California State University at Berkeley on the strength of experiments with 17 monkeys. Not a single one showed systems of infantile or any other kind of paralysis.

Young con artists stymied

The Board of Health has decided to pay no more bounties for the killing of flies. It has become known to them that numerous small boys have discovered that they could breed flies in great numbers by cooping them up while young and they have been collecting large bounties each week.

Deaths in the news

Wilson S. Smead, 71, prominent Luzerne postmaster, was found dead June 8, 1913 in his bed at home. A veteran of the Civil War, he was appointed postmaster by President Roosevelt in 1904. He is survived by two sons, Walter and Clifford Smead. John G. Harris, 69, a native of Warrensburgh, who left here about 50 years ago and made his home in Johnstown where he engaged in glove making, died June 8, 1913 after a yearÕ s illness from a complication of diseases. Two black bears died at the hands of Clark Hayes the other day and the larger of them weighed 400 pounds while the little one weighed about 100 pounds. The big one was tough and did not give up his life or the little oneÕ s life easily as he bared his teeth and flashed his claws and gave Hayes considerable trouble. The bears were caught in traps on the ridge and could not get away when they were shot and killed.

Puzzling weather

A severe frost visited this locality the night

paintings, carved wood sculpture and rustic furniture by Anne and Al Rohe Ñ will be hosting several other artisans on their lawn. One memorable way to experience this expo is to arrive at the event via a vintage railroad car. An area chamber of commerce is booking transportation for a limited number of passengers aboard the Saratoga & North Creek Railway on July 27, leaving the Saratoga train station at 10 a.m. and returning at 3:18 p.m.. The special ticket price includes lunch vouchers and a raffle ticket. Advance registration with prepayment is required. For details, call Perky at 623-9305.

Pets are safest at home

June 21 is the official first day of summer, which routinely means very warm weather. Readers are asked to remember that leaving pets in vehicles is extremely dangerous. Nationwide, veterinary hospitals see an increase in heat-related illness as soon as the prevailing temperatures climb over 85. Even leaving the windows cracked open for air will not prevent temperatures inside oneÕ s car from climbing to dangerous levels for your pet. With the windows barely open, a car or truck will still heat up to 120 degrees or so. Your canine companions are indeed more comfortable at home. What might be considered a quick trip into a store can inadvertently turn into 15 minutes, long enough for an animal to suffer. Darker colored and flat faced dogs, such a Pekingese, are more susceptible to heat stroke or dehydration, both of which can be fatal. Do your pet a favor Ñ instead of bringing them with you on an errand, leave them at home and bring them back a special treat!

Activities and events in the hills

The county-sponsored senior bus service to Glens Falls runs on the second and fourth Friday of every month. The next senior bus will run Friday June 28 and is free to those age 60 and over. Those who wish to go should call Laura in advance at 623-9281. The Thurman Quilting Group holds their meetings from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. every Monday at the town hall. People are urged to bring their knitting, sewing, or quilting projects and make some new friends. For details, contact Myra at 623-2633. Thurman Baptist Church will once again be holding their Vacation Bible School during the last week of June Ñ thatÕ s Monday June 24 through Friday June 28 from 6:30 to 8 p.m., and all ages are invited to attend.

Over the fence

The Thurman Youth Commission is seeking additional members to help coordinate activities and parties for the youth in our community. To apply for the board, send a letter to: Town Clerk, Thurman Town Hall, P.O. Box 29, Athol, NY 12810. Warren County Bicentennial pins are available for purchase. To buy one of these attractive items Ñ reasonably priced at $5 — contact Cheryl at 623-9718 or Sally at or: 623-4889.

On a personal note

Friends and family are invited to attend David MillingtonÕ s 63rd birthday bash from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday June 29 at the Sodom Scout Hall. Those attending are asked to bring a covered

of June 8, 1913. Also, public-spirited citizens view with much alarm the destructive attack of hordes of forest tent caterpillars upon WarrensburghÕ s shade trees. Most gardens are being replanted again because of Ò too much frost and too many worms.Ó Last year prime hay was selling for $28 a ton and now the price is $20. (Note - Just 22 days after the heavy frost, July 1, 1913 was the hottest day in the prior two years. The Warrensburgh News thermometer registered 93 degrees but in other parts of the village it soared to 100. Back in July 1911, the hot spell only rose to 96 degrees. )

Area news in brief

North Creek Photographer L.E. Atherton has established a studio in a tent at Chestertown which will be open Sunday and Monday of each week during the season. He takes superior photographs and does developing and printing for amateurs. Harry Bierman, a native of Russia, and 14 other alien residents of Warren County have filed applications for U.S. citizenship. Bierman is associated with the Warrensburgh tailoring firm of Katz & Bierman. Miss Huldah Eldridge was given a linen shower recently at the home of her sister, Mrs. Grant Turner. Miss Eldridge is soon to marry William McElroy of Warrensburgh. A lawn party held Friday evening, June 6, 1913, did well on the lawn of the Johnsburgh Methodist Church and netted $11.50.

Lake George water quality grant awarded

LAKE GEORGE — The Lake George Water Quality Awareness Committees sponsored by The Fund for Lake George have been awarded a Federal Emergency Management Agency grant of $30,000. The committees are now being established with a mission of protecting the health of the lake Ñ as a source of drinking water and as the lifeblood of the local economy. The initiative received the maximum grant amount. Five committees been established and more are being formed. The groups, comprised of Lake George residents who share concern over declining lake health, will be coordinating actions basin-wide to protect the lake. Linking area citizens and reaching out to neighbors through an interactive website, the committee members are to be resolving direct threats to drinking water quality from septic systems, fertilizer and pesticide use, unmanaged stormwater runoff, and more. “This grant allows us to expand our activities with many more communities committed to protecting our drinking water and irreplaceable natural resources,Ó said Dana Seguljic, Diamond Point Water Quality Awareness Committee Chair. Lisa Adamson, founding member of the Assembly Point water quality action committee, introduced The Fund for Lake George to the FEMA opportunity. More information is available by contacting The Fund for Lake George.

Joseph Warren.

Farmers’ market from page 1

Town leaders and local entrepreneurs have credited the market for prompting a revitalizing downtown, which until last year was full of shuttered storefronts. Since the market was launched by the TriLakes Business Alliance, summer and earlyfall traffic has increased downtown during midweek, and a several new businesses have sprouted — while existing enterprises have lengthened their hours. Local residents have also praised the market for creating a new opportunity for full- and part-time residents to get together and socialize. The 2013 edition of the farmers market features 28 vendors, a record number for the venue, Alliance publicist Cindy Mead said. Ò With our many new vendors, the Chestertown Farmers’ Market offers an expanded array of fruits, vegetables and gourmet foods as well as handcrafted wares,Ó she said. Ò Without a doubt, thereÕ s an outstanding shopping and social experience for everyone.” Vendors offering food products include: vegetables, cut flowers, sandwiches and drinks from Main Street Ice Cream Parlor & Farm of Chestertown; berries from Blue Fly Butter Berry Farm of Chestertown; maple syrup and other products from Byrd Pond Maple of Chestertown and Adirondack Gold Maple Farm of Thurman; baked goods, fresh crepes, jams, paninis, soups, salsa and granola from DickinsonÕ s Delights of Argyle; baked goods and herbs from the J.

Bolton Bulletin By Wauneata Waller 644-3880

Local farmers’ market is back

The Bolton FarmersÕ market kicks off its third season Friday June 28 in great style. To be held 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Fridays through summer at Blessed Sacrament Church on Goodwin Avenue (off Main St. behind the local bank), the market features local fresh produce along with meats, fish, wine, gourmet foods, cheese, breads and baked goods, waffles, plus naturally grown meat.

All businesses and non-profits are encouraged to drop off flyers and brochures. Local organizations and businesses can contact the Bolton Chamber of Commerce Ñ sponsor of the market Ñ or market manager Penelope Jewell Ñ to reserve a free spot for promotional materials.

Bolton EMS seeking volunteers

Although Bolton Emergency Medical Services is always in need of trained emergency medical technicians, the agency also needs drivers, administrative help, equipment maintenance assistance, as well as help stocking medical supplies. Help from both full-time and part-year residents is appreciated. Assistance from BoltonÕ s fair-weather residents is welcome because summer is the agencyÕ s busiest time of the year when extra help is vital and immensely appreciated. Bolton EMS officials said this week they strive to provide local communities with the highest level of emergency medical care and transportation over 24 hours, seven days per week. Until a few years ago, Bolton EMS was able to provide expert services utilizing only volunteers who were full-time residents. But with a declining volunteer membership and the prevailing

June 22, 2013

demands on peopleÕ s time, particularly in the summer months, the organization began to hire Paramedics, Critical Care technicians and EMT staffers from out-of-town. Routinely, Bolton ambulances now respond staffed with either a volunteer or paid crew or a combination of the two. However, because so many other North Country communitybased ambulance services are also lacking volunteers, the agencies are all competing for the limited number of advanced medical technicians available. Also, it is increasingly difficult to find staff or volunteers to crew an ambulance 24/7, agency officers say. Bolton EMS Operations Administrator Earl Mikoloski talked recently of the pressures on agency personnel and finances. Ò Reluctantly in May 2012, when our increasing payroll burden surpassed the level of financial support the Town of Bolton was able to commit, we found it necessary to begin billing for emergency medical services,Ó he said. Even with this additional income, financial stresses continue, he added. Bolton EMS, like so many other smaller rural ambulance corps, doesnÕ t have enough ambulance calls a year to be self-sustaining on medical service billing alone. Mikoloski noted that increasing costs of personnel, fuel, ambulance fuel and maintenance, utilities, medical supplies and equipment — as well as the expense of mandated oversight by an agency medical director Ñ continue to stress the agencyÕ s budget. Area residents who can help out by volunteering their time in virtually any capacity are urged to contact Mikoloski at 644-9283 or:

Lake Geo. Hike-A-Thon slated

In celebration of its 25th anniversary, the Lake George Land Conservancy is hosting a Hike-A-Thon on Friday July 5, the first of its kind for Lake George. The lake-wide event will involve various parks and preserves in six towns and is expected to engage hundreds of participants of all ages. The Hike-A-Thon will feature nine simultaneous hikes and events at eight locations around Lake George, plus eight different hikes and one gathering at PeggyÕ s Point, a park in Hague. Participation is free and open to the public. Everyone who preregisters will receive an event t-shirt and participation certificate. To document the occasion, aerial photographs will be taken by renowned photographer Carl Heilman, from a helicopter flown by Bruce Mowery of North Country Heli-Flite. Sarah Hoffman of the Conservancy said the Hike-a-Thon, despite its scope, has been fun to organize. “We’re excited to get 400,

maybe 500 people from all around the region to come together as one community, for the love of Lake George,Ó she said. Each hike or gathering is scheduled to match the helicopterÕ s flight path from Bolton to Ticonderoga on the lake’s west side, then down the east shoreline to Lake George Village and back up to Bolton on the west. Starting times for the hikes are detailed at: LGLC’s trails vary in length and difficulty to suit most ages and abilities. For those who prefer a less intense activity, a garden party is planned for Peggy’s Point, a flat and accessible waterfront park in Hague. Flowers will be available there to plant. For details or to register for the event, see: or call 644-9673. Donations are accepted but not required to participate. Bus trip to attend Yankees game The Bolton Town Recreation Department has planned a bus trip downstate for area residents to see the New York Yankees compete against the Minnesota Twins on Saturday July 13. The bus departs the Bolton Town Hall parking lot at 7:15 a.m. and returns at 9 p.m. Travel is on an air-conditioned bus with restrooms and video screens. Participants may bring a cooler and two small bottles of water (no glass) per person into the stadium. The game begins at 1:05 p.m. and the group will be seated in the grandstand. The cost is $60 per person, no refunds. Sign up in advance at the town hall Mondays through Fridays 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The town Recreation Department has scheduled a wide variety of activities this summer, detailed on calendars that were sent to local households. Details are also available at: The town-sponsored six-week summer camp sessions can still accept several more children Ñ applications and information are available online.

that were more Òh ockey oriented.Ó “With Saranac Lake’s proximity to Lake Placid, Massena has a lot of hockey fans and New Hampshire offers the young athletes visibility to area colleges,Ó R od said. The Fighting Spirits played at the Lake George Forum. Ralph Macchio Sr., the ForumÕ s owner since 2009 and father of ÒK arate KidÓ actor Ralph Macchio Jr., said four and a half years of having an ice rink and a year hosting the Fighting Spirits has been a great experience, but he wants to diversify the facility’s programs. That means removing the ice rink and continuing to host various community events, said Tony Kypreos, spokesman for Macchio. ÒM r. Macchio felt the ice rink was not conducive to the Lake George area and hopes by not being limited because of the ice rink he can he can bring in more programs, music shows, and keep doing Elvis Fest and Americade and other productions he has always done,Ó K ypreos said. The hockey team played its first season at the Forum and was the leader in the state in their division of the Northern States Hockey League.

All athletes will be required to take at least one class the Plymouth State College in Plymouth, N.H., just south of Waterville Valley. “We finished our season with a 37-4 record, but we also base the success of our season on college placement and having our athletes ready to transition right into college hockey,Ó R od said. Five former Spirits athletes will go on to play hockey at a higher level Ñ the University of Southern Maine, Elmira, SUNY Canton, and the University of Canton club hockey team. The 15 returning team members will travel from their homes in South Glens Falls, Massena, Ontario, Texas, New Jersey, North Carolina, Maine, Nova Scotia, Washington, and as far away as Switzerland.

Bicentennial from page 1

Crocitto introduced Lake George Mayor Robert Blais, noting he was the longest-serving mayor in New York State. “We need to preserve Warren County for the next 200 years,Ó Blais said, noting that area citizens should be stewards of the regionÕ s environment on behalf of future generations. Ò For 200 years, Warren County, and all of our lakes in Warren County, and particularly Lake George, is synonymous with fun, recreation, history, pleasure and pristine quality.Ó Lake George Town Board member Marisa Muratori recounted a brief history of Warren County since the French & Indian War, as well as a historical account of the Old County Courthouse, and how it was saved from impending destruction. Ò We do love our very rich history here in Warren County, where momentous nation-building events took place and great inventions of science and the arts were inspired,Ó she said. Ò We care for our heritage,Ó she continued, noting the buildingÕ s preservation. Ò The evolution of this building demonstrates that as a collective, a democracy, with effort and intent, the best of our values can prevail.Ó North Warren High School Student Christiaan Van Nispen read an award-winning patriotic essay he penned. His speech drew a parallel between our democracy and human anatomy Ñ how various bodily elements work together symbiotically for a greater purpose. He said the U.S. Constitution was the backbone of the government, and U.S. citizens provided the pulse of the democracy. Ò We the people must keep our government in check to maintain our nationÕ s homeostasis, Ò he said. The eventÕ s featured speaker, state Historian Robert Weible, said that there was no better place in the U.S. than Warren County to study history. Ò You have an important story to tell here, not only local history, but state and national history as well,Ó he said. Ò If you truly feel this history and take pride in it, you can change the future.Ó Glens Falls actor Wesley Ecker portrayed Lake George settler James Cadwell Ñ speaking about the life of the historical figure, a successful merchant, importer and manufacturer in both Warren County, who once owned and operated the nation’s largest manufacturing complex in the Albany area. Ecker, posing as Caldwell, recounted his role in developing commerce in the region, as well as speaking of details of his personal life. The Warren County Bicentennial plaque was unveiled by Geraghty and Joan Sady, Clerk of the county Board of Supervisors. The plaques are to be presented to each of the countyÕ s municipalities. Bolton Supervisor Ron Conover commented on the gravity of the celebration. Ò This has been one of the major events in our countyÕ s history,Ó he said. County Administrator Paul Dusek added his thoughts. Ò ItÕ s quite a privilege to be county administrator during this time period,Ó he said. The ceremony concluded by four French & Indian War re-enactors firing musket shots into the sky above Lake George.
