Located at 200 Consumer Square, the massive eatery will seat between 200 and 240 people, depending on the weather and the ability to utilize terrace seating.

Plattsburgh’s popular Maui North in new hands By Shawn Ryan PLATTSBURGH Ñ After 30 years, Maui North in downtown Plattsburgh is under new ownership. After looking for some time for a business opportunity, Plattsburgh natives Kimberly Rowe-Manion and Dennis Manion heard of the possibility of buying Maui North. Ò To make it in the North Country you need to either be a professional, or you need to own a business. WeÕ re both from small business families, so we started looking at different businesses, and this is the one that sort of stuck,Ó said Rowe-Manion. It helped that the couple are lifelong skiers, and Rowe-Manion was a ski instructor for three years. She is also formerly a competitive cyclists, on road, off road and on the track. With 30 years in business, and a fiercely loyal customer base, Rowe-Manion isn’t planning any major changes. Right now the couple are focusing on getting up to speed with running the business. “There’s a lot of turning wheels. You’re the HR person, you’re the financial person, youÕ re the buyer, youÕ re the janitor. We have awesome staff who help out with it,Ó she said. Along with being a store owner, and working at the Small Business Development Center at Plattsburgh State, Rowe-Manion is an active force with the grass-roots movement to rejuvenate downtown Plattsburgh in her spare time. She launched the North Country Marketing Alliance, to try and tap into the 3.2 million Canadians who cross the border, but typically keep their shopping to the Route 3 corridor. She is also is a proponent of the idea of Ò shop local, shop small,Ó encouraging local shoppers to consider the downtown businesses in their shopping plans. Along with these initiatives, she sees a need for the city to pursue a larger, anchor type business to attract traffic to downtown. “I think if Plattsburgh had an economic development office, even if it was part time, just to pursue the grants that are out there. ThereÕ s so much money out there,Ó she said. She hopes too to see the areaÕ s greatest asset, the waterfront, developed some day in a way that would attract business to the downtown. She thinks a small boutique-type hotel downtown would help attract foot traffic and spin off businesses like restaurants to the area. With several efforts to revitalize downtown Plattsburgh currently under way and showing positive results, there is a new energy downtown. New people are coming in and bringing new ideas with them. People like Rowe-Manion are quietly at the forefront of the effort.

Livingoods re-opens at former Crickets location in Peru By Shawn Ryan PERU Ñ Livingoods Restaurant is open for business, and work on an upcoming brew pub is pressing ahead rapidly. Since their soft opening last week, the restaurant has been packed with regulars of the former downtown business. Ò We were full with familiar faces Wednesday (Nov. 27) night. There are some people weÕ re not going to see as often, understandably so,Ó said co-owner Jess Ray. Ò WeÕ re hoping that, we know everybodyÕ s gonna come out here at least once. I hope the ones that come out here and see what we can offer now, and the vibe that weÕ re able to create here, will keep coming back.Ó Jess said that she and her husband Matt loved the time they spent in their downtown location, but the business needed to grow, and the space they were in simply wouldnÕ t allow for that

growth. They looked for another city location, but when the opportunity to move into the Bear Swamp Road location came up, it was a perfect fit for them. Ò We hit a ceiling where we were, and we really couldnÕ t do any more than what we did,Ó said Jess. Ò My husband likes to say if a business isnÕ t growing itÕ s dying.Ó The main place where they are planning on growing is to brew their own beer, and have a brew-pub along with the restaurant. Construction on the brewery will be starting this week, all the brewing equipment has been ordered, and Jess said they expect to be turning out beer in April. ItÕ s been a whirlwind of activity for the Rays since summer, closing one restaurant and opening another. Their new landlord closed on the building in July, and they were under renovation by August. Ò We do have an extremely dedicated and hard-working staff

here. I donÕ t know what we wouldÕ ve done; we did the move, we pulled it off within three to four weeks. The core group of our staff just stepped up, and we couldnÕ t have pulled it off without them. We just canÕ t thank them enough for helping us make it happen.Ó With more space, Livingoods can not only seat more people, but can now host parties as well. Shortly after opening they were booked through December for Christmas parties. For the Rays though, growing in size was only part of the reason they moved. The main reason was to open the brewery. Jess calls Matt an artist of the pallet, and says he has a special knack with beer. Ò He loves to cook, but heÕ s at his happiest when heÕ s wearing those brew boots and his Carhartts.Ó If all goes to plan, heÕ ll have the opportunity to don those boots by early spring.

Food pantries need our support


ocal food pantries Ñ and many of our neighbors Ñ need help. The holiday season is always a busy time for food pantries. The combination of yearend expenses, holiday pressures, the arrival of the heating season, the loss of seasonal jobs and other factors make for peak demand during December and January. While food pantries anticipate the increased demand, this holiday season brings never-beforeseen problems for food shelves. Cuts to the federal food stamp program took effect Nov. 1. Those cuts to the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, widely known as food stamps, began with the sunset of higher benefits that were part of the 2009 federal stimulus package meant to help Americans through the recession. Those cuts mean more people are relying on local food banks. Ò We really noticed a difference when SNAP was cut,Ó Margaret Beuerlein, director if the Ticonderoga Food Pantry, said. Ò A lot of people depend on food stamps.Ó Contrary to common belief, many of those relying on food stamps are working people. In fact, nearly 30 percent of the adults receiving SNAP benefits have jobs. Also, food stamps benefits aren’t exactly big money. The average monthly SNAP benefit per person is $133.85, Ñ less than $1.50 per person, per meal. Ò People are really struggling to make ends meet,Ó Beuerlein said. Ò WeÕ re seeing more and more people who have jobs, the working poor. The cost of living has gotten greater than many incomes in our area. People canÕ t live on minimum wage.Ó The Ti Food Pantry has served an average of 100 families a month in 2013, but in October that number jumped to 178. Beuerlein expects it to grow further. Ò ThatÕ s families,Ó she stressed. Ò That doesnÕ t count the children. I donÕ t know how many actual people are being served at the food pantry. I know itÕ s more than ever before.Ó TiconderogaÕ s food shelf is not alone. According to the Hunger Action Network of New York State, 81 percent of the stateÕ s emergency food programs reported an increase in the number of individuals served in 2012, roughly one third of who were children. Ò Currently, 1 in 6 residents of New York State struggle with food hardship,Ó said Sharon M. Smith, executive director of the Food Bank Association of New York State,. Ò And in light of the recent Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program cuts, many more New Yorkers will need to turn to emergency feeding providers such as food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters served by the eight regional food banks throughout New York State.Ó The demand on food pantries could continue to grow. Deeper cuts to SNAP over the next decade are possible as negotiations about the federal farm bill wear on in Washington. The federal program is administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The cuts to food stamps arenÕ t the only problem facing local food pantries. Food costs, including those to food pantries, are going up. The Moriah Food pantry, like most food shelves in the area, purchases food from the Northeast Regional Food Bank. Increased prices there mean less food for the Moriah food shelf. Sue Morse, director of the Moriah Food Pantry, said her agency is having trouble filling its shelves this holiday season. Ò IÕ m asking residents to donate non-perishable food items, hold food drives and make cash donations,Ó Morse said. Ò Moriah residents have always come through for the pantry in the past and we know we can count on their caring and generosity to help once again.Ó Gov. Andrew Cuomo has also recognized the problems facing food pantries. Ò With the combination of cuts to the federal SNAP program and an approaching winter season, it is more important than ever that New Yorkers support their local food bank,Ó Cuomo said. Ò New YorkÕ s food banks serve a variety of vulnerable populations across the state, including senior citizens, individuals with disabilities, and low income families Ñ many of whom have already been impacted by federal SNAP reductions. By purchasing a few extra items to donate when grocery shopping, we can all do our part to put food on the table of those in need this holiday season.Ó The good news is that North Country residents are a generous lot. Food drives are now planned in several communities. Help is on the way. LetÕ s hope everyone does their part. While food pantries are seldom in the news, they provide a crucial, year-round service. They deserve and need our support. Ñ

Style & Substance: Haunted by your first love

Dear style & substance, I feel haunted by my “first love”. Even though I broke up with him after 2 years, I can’t seem to find that sweet feeling with my new boyfriend. What is it about first love and can I ever get Ò thatÓ feeling again? First love is something to be reckoned with! So what is it about first love that you and we all seek to recreate? Prior to your first Ò fallÓ É romantic love had only been read of in books or seen in movies; so it is quite shattering to experience the emotional and physical aspects when we do fall in love. To take a healthy approach to this question; we believe that it is crucial to have experienced the unconditional love of family first and secondly, the love of self. These two loves are the foundation on which to build a mature love relationship. Part of first love, is that it helps to develop our self-love, especially if it happens during the teen and young adult years. It is during this intense, growing pain filled time that we are figuring out who we are and what is important to us in a relationship. If you have not experienced unconditional love and/or selflove (all is not lost), you can start with getting to know and accept yourself; physically, emotionally, spiritually and intellectually, all of your strengths and weaknesses. This can be a gentle process, if you reflect on it daily through awareness and acceptance. Continue to move toward unconditionally loving you for you. Arm yourself with a sense of humor and an assurance that most people, even the most confident, are working on and possibly struggling with self-love regularly. It is very personally a Ò meÓ process, not a Ò themÓ process. When seeking your next love, begin to change the focus of your question from Ò can I get that feeling again?Ó to Ò what do I need from a relationship to feel energized, loved and fulfilled?” Remind yourself of the qualities that first attracted you to your new boyfriend. In that process, also remind yourself of the reasons your “first love” and you are no longer together. Does your

The Burgh - 5 can return by clarifying what mature love is to you; welcoming openness and honesty and a willingness to connect. If you and your current boyfriend are to grow and have a life together; this mature and loving relationship should withstand the questions you ask and the answers you seek. Work toward “first love”….where there is enough caring to keep you strong and enough passion and play to keep and grow that sweet feeling of unforgettable love.

current relationship bring you closer to self- assurance or selfdoubt? What qualities can you not live with and not live without? Reflecting on your first love is remembering your capacity to feel 100 % alive and to truly connect with another person. Use it now as a touchstone to continue to develop your best self. First love is a brand new experience of na• ve passion and playfulness and therefore gut wrenching when over. Love has been defined by poets, celebrated in song, and survived and triumphed over by most human beings. Love, especially first love, is lustful and energetic, and driven by intense desire and need. Remember, first love does not always make sense, so it is hard to pinpoint the highlights. Feeling alive; young and carefree are choices that you can still make with the right Ò playmateÓ . What you have now may be something closer to true, enduring love and that is contentment. Contentment is not boredom, it is stability, it is commitment, and it is lasting. You may find that adding some different aspects to define this relationship is what it needs to really come alive for you. If you feel you are missing the passion of a “first love” know that the “sweet feeling”

Letters to the Editor

IP benefits region, Vermont To the Burgh:

I find it interesting that the Cornwall Vermont selectboard wants to stop the pipeline of natural gas from reaching International Paper in Ticonderoga! Vermonters “say they just don’t see how their local economy benefits much from a pipeline that primarily serves a company across the lake in New York.Ó I say their local economy benefits greatly from IP’s employment of Vermonters at the plant and those who haul pulpwood to the mill! There are also the purchases of the pulpwood from landowners in Vermont! The same people who would have us believe they are saving the environment by stopping the pipeline are adding to pollution by objecting to cleaner burning natural gas for the Ti plant! I have no problem with someone being against the use of fracking to obtain gas or oil, but using this as a reason to stop the pipeline is ludicrous. Vermont Gas, the company trying to build the pipeline, is not fracking for the gas in Vermont and the product is coming from another country that allows it! Is it possible that some of the diesel and gas fuel used in vehicles and farm equipment in Vermont comes from fracked oil that is trucked or brought in by rail? There is also the possibility that home heating oil may come from the same source! This pipeline could also eventually serve the people of Ticonderoga who now rely on heating oil and wood to keep them warm during the winters. Natural gas is a proven cleaner fuel that cuts greenhouse emissions, which in turn is environmentally safer. If IP closed the Ti plant Vermont would lose millions of dollars and its economy would suffer! The Cornwall selectboard in a letter to the governor of Vermont stated that the pipeline was “a convenient and calculated ploy to benefit International Paper and Vermont Gas.” No mention was made of the people of Ti or anyone else who may benefit. If the people of Vermont are objecting to any damage done to the landscape along the length of the pipeline this is a moot point. Once laid the disturbed land will be put back as it was as is evidenced in countless pipelines laid across the countryside. The remark made by Cornwall selectboard member Bruce Hiland, “that if the pipeline is built he wants Vermont Gas and IP to cut his community in on more of the economic benefits” tells the

real story! ItÕ s money not the environment thatÕ s at issue! In the interest of a cleaner environment I believe Vermont Gas should use the courts and use the right of eminent domain if needed to get this needed pipeline completed. Stopping a cleaner burning, cheaper fuel is not environmentally sane and shows a selfish side to CornwallÕ s objections! Gary P. Guido Ticonderoga

Thank you to those who serve To the Burgh:

As I finished the Thanksgiving meal, my wife and i prepared for our family, I couldnÕ t help noticing the empty plate that is placed on our table every year. This is to remember the members of our family who served in the armed forces of the Untied States of America both past and present. I thought about the men and women who are far away from their loved ones, with no possibility of personal contact other than an email and if they are lucky a phone call. I realized the only reason I was home safe and secure enjoying the bounty of our table was because of the sacrifices that were and are being made by Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and covert operatives around the world. With Christmas coming I know there are a lot of organizations around the country receiving donations from people. The vast majority of these organizations do some really great things for total strangers. If you have the means during these economically difficult times to donate anything, whether it be time or money, I would like to suggest two organizations. The American Legion and the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW). These two organizations support our troops and our veterans in a variety of ways. What could possibly be a better way of saying Ò thank youÓ for the freedoms we all enjoy today. Something as simple as a holiday card to a total stranger who is deployed is a great way of showing your appreciation. And it doesnÕ t cost much! In closing I wish I could shake the hand of every single person who served or is serving our country. I know thats not possible so all I can say is thank you and may god bless all of you. Harold Kelly Durham, New York

Summer camp donations To the Burgh:

Many of you have called my office to inquire about a mailing from the New York State SheriffÕ s Association requesting a donation. This mailing concerned the Summer Camp and had my signature. I want to assure you that the above information is completely correct and that by your donations, the New York State SheriffÕ s Association is able to operate a summer camp for children who may not otherwise be able to attend a camp. The camp is located on Keuka Lake in the Finger Lake region, is run by highly qualified staff along with Sheriff’s Office personnel and best of all, is 100 percent free to the children. This only happens by way of your more than generous support. More information can be obtained at the website While this camp operates for the entire state, I am happy to say that Essex County has been able to send 8 children per year and they have all come back with smiles beyond belief! In the same vein, the Association will be soon doing a mailing to businesses around the state also looking for support. I can assure you that I would not put my signature on anything that carries even a hint of impropriety but if you have any doubts about this or any other fund raising contacts, please call before you send any funds. Again, I thank you for your support for both myself and the children who have taken advantage of this tremendous opportunity. Richard Cutting Essex County Sheriff

Older and Wiser


s the Administrator of a senior citizen facility, it has been my privilege to be part of their lives every day. They have such a vast body of education and experience that it is an adventure to hear them recount their lives. Those that were ground breaking women, a woman that travelled to post-war Japan to open an American business and her counterparts in Japan said, Ò when is your boss coming,Ó expecting a man, one that never ended up arriving. Men who served in World War II in the Pacific Theatre or the European Theatre of operations reside at the facility. One elderly gentleman told me, Ò we all did our jobs and tried to stay alive.Ó Women whose husbands or brothers returned home from the war injured physically and or emotionally. One resident told how she was taking care of her brother who had been a prisoner of war in World War II and was in very poor shape when he returned home. She

told me that it took six months back home before he could sleep at night and any loud noise would send him running for cover. A few months after her brother returned, her husband arrived and he was even worse off. Though she faced an arduous task, she smiled as she recounted those days and you knew from her expression, that she knew that she had done something very important in restoring her brother and her husband to health. By Scot Hurlburt Many young people are unable to profit from the wisdom of older people either through separation through distance or their assumption that life was so different years ago that their advice might be irrelevant. For much of the existence of humans, they have relied heavily on the Ò eldersÓ or Ò wise peopleÓ among their own kind. In fact, we know that the accumulated wisdom of the elderly often spelled the difference between survival and death in manÕ s earliest times. The elders often helped teach the children, knew how to care for the sick and were the people that everyone turned to in a time of crisis. Psychologist Juan Pascual-Leone has coined the phrase Ò ultimate limit situations.Ó These situations are among

Kids Count

the most taxing and consequential like aging, failure, oppression, loss, crushing poverty and risking death in war. Great wisdom can be harvested from these situations and the elderly have experienced more of these dilemmas than most young people. Many of the elderly can remember the leans times associated with economic depressions and economic recessions. WouldnÕ t they know how to navigate the current economic downturns given their experience with them before? Perhaps I have a romantic myopia that idealizes the elderly among us. I grew up without elderly relatives after moving to America having had a large extended family before. To this day I can remember my Aunts and Uncles and their colorful personalities and their kindnesses to me. One of the greatest wisdoms that I have learned from the many older folks that I have known is to relax and to not Ò make mountains out of molehillsÓ all the time. I know quite a number of people who are truly stressed out. They are on tight schedules, have little time for themselves or their loved ones or to just relax and have fun. If you talk to an older person they will tell you to be Ò eager to come to work and eager to go home.Ó In other words separate your work life from your home life and Ò donÕ t sweat the small stuff.Ó I still believe that experience is one of the greatest teachers. Remember all kids count. Reach the writer at

“Mood and Memory Clinic” opens in Plattsburgh By Shawn Ryan PLATTSBURGH Ñ After opening and operating the AlzheimerÕ s Disease Assistance Center at Plattsburgh State University for over two decades, Dr. Taher Zandi is moving into private practice. Zandi has opened the Ò Mood and Memory Clinic,Ó at 110 West Bay Plaza in Plattsburgh. Ò I will continue providing care for Alzheimer patients, assessment and evaluations, thatÕ s basically what I do,Ó said Zandi. Ò I set them up for assessment and testing, and they come here, and I will do all of these things within one session so that people who are traveling donÕ t have to keep coming back and forth.Ó He works with physicians to develop treatment plans for patients, and is a consultant for CVPH as well. Zandi opened the Assessment Center at Plattsburgh State in 1988. In his 25 years in practice, he has seen the understanding and treatment of AlzheimerÕ s and dementia change radically. Patients who used to be placed under the one umbrella of AlzheimerÕ s are now seen as having different conditions, with different

causes and treatments. What he hopes to see as well in the future, is a shift in the publicÕ s perception of the elderly. Ò The way I try to look at it is there is a reason for these people to be around. I think that culturally they are extremely important to make sure that information is passed on from generation to generation. They are the holders of the past. They are the wisdom of our society,Ó Zandi said. Along with the AlzheimerÕ s or dementia patient, Zandi offers counseling services for family members and care givers as well. An especially hard time that Zandi helps families deal with is the decision of whether or not to put a loved on in assisted living or a nursing home. He sees exciting trends in research developing over the next 10 years. While he doesnÕ t think a cure for AlzheimerÕ s is around the corner, he says that doctors are developing a better understanding of how to slow the progression of the disease. Ò I think down the road the quality of life for people with dementia is going to improve,Ó he said. The Mood and Memory Clinic can be reached at 534-1582.

Suspect arrested in pair of city fires By Shawn Ryan PLATTSBURGH — Plattsburgh city police and fire department members, and members of the SUNY Plattsburgh police, were called to a car fire and a house fire, mere minutes apart in the early morning hours of Friday, Nov. 29. The first fire was reported at 3:52 a.m. It involved a vehicle parked at SUNY PlattsburghÕ s service compound on Sanborn Ave. The fire was investigated by SUNY Plattsburgh police, with the assistance of Plattsburgh City Police. While they were at the scene of that fire, city police were called to a second fire at 87 Lafayette Street, at 4:08 a.m. The second fire involved a residence. City police fought the fire with fire extin-

guishers until the Plattsburgh city fire department arrived and extinguished the fire, saving the residence. Both fires were determined to be suspicious in nature. Plattsburgh city police detectives were brought in to take over the investigation, along with SUNY police. After developing several leads, police arrested 17-year-old Bruce Bombard, of Halsey Court, Plattsburgh. According to a city police press release, Bombard was charged with Arson second degree, a B felony, arson third degree, a C felony, and two counts of criminal mischief second degree, which are D felonies. Bombard was arraigned in Plattsburgh City Court before Judge Mark Rogers on November 29. He was committed to the Clinton County Jail in lieu of $50,000 cash bail or $100,000 bond.

City Police look for missing man By Katherine Clark

PLATTSBURGH Ñ Plattsburgh City Police are searching for Joe Barcomb, 21, who has been missing since Nov. 23. According to BarcombÕ s father Wilfred Boudrieau, he last saw his son when he dropped him off at the Oak Street Halfway house on Saturday afternoon after a holiday dinner. Boudrieau said a friend later contacted the family to say Barcomb had checked himself out after being dropped off and didnÕ t return. When Barcomb still hadn’t been heard from, his family filed a missing persons report on Nov. 25. Boudrieau said his daughter had been contacted by a third party to say his son was fine and didn’t want to be found. Ò ItÕ s all hearsay and third party information, until I physically see Joe heÕ s still missing,Ó Boudrieau said. Sergeant Ken Parkinson said police are still trying Joe Barcomb to contact the friend to validate that Barcomb is okay. BarcombÕ s mother, Kelly Bibeau, said her son has gone off for days at a time before but had always let someone know where he was by calling or sending a message through Facebook. Ò HeÕ s always gotten a hold of someone, I just donÕ t know, he was a good kid but now I just want to say kid what are you doing?Ó Bibeau said. Ò ItÕ s unlike Joey to not call.Ó Boudrieau said even if Barcomb Ò doesnÕ t want to be foundÓ as stated by a third party to his daughter, he hopes his son would end their worrying. Ò Please come home,Ó Boudrieau said. Anyone with information about BarcombÕ s whereabouts should contact the Plattsburgh City Police at 563-3411 or at BibeauÕ s house at 566-8190.

Johnny Acorn



tÕ s happened again. IÕ ve received another annual Ô love letterÕ from a virulent member of the antihunting community who has taken me to task for promoting a Ò sickening blood sport.Ó I guess sheÕ s right. IÕ ll admit it, I have stepped over the line, just as VermontÕ s Governor Peter Shumlin did when he took a six point buck on the opening day of Vermont’s annual deer season. Reportedly, the governorÕ s buck weighed in at 186 pounds. I wish I could say the same, however my buck remains on the hoof and the season is nearly over. Humans canÕ t remove themselves from the natural way of things. By genetic design, we are to be predators, and try though we may, we simply canÕ t deny it. Did you ever wonder why little kids will try to throw a rock at a bird. They canÕ t explain why they do it or try to stop it. It just happens, I believe, because itÕ s part of our nature. I suppose I could always take up another sport, like basketball, or football, but it would probably be difficult to gather together enough 55-year-old athletes to play a game. Funny thing though, I know a lot of 50, 60 and 70-yearold hunters who continue to enjoy their sport. I can even name a few that continue to enjoy the hunt well into their 90Õ s. The challenge that hunting provides to humans is one of the finest ways to express our instinctual nature. There simply arenÕ t a lot of other active sports that provide such a wonderful opportunity for longevity. Hunting is a great source of exercise. It not only burns calories, it helps to keep you fit. Depending on the method, the weather and the amount of time spent afield, you can literally burn off thousands of calories in a dayÕ s hunt. IÕ ll drop 15 to 20 pounds during the average hunting season. Even sitting on watch, you burn calories shivering. Hunting is a life sport which is accomplished with the death of an animal. However, it doesnÕ t always work that way. Most hunters spend far more time hunting, than they do harvesting. On average, I spend nearly a monthÕ s time walking the woods during the hunting season. In 30 plus years of hunting, IÕ d guess IÕ ve spent less than 30 seconds of total shooting time combined. ItÕ s been estimated an adult white-tailed deer consumes approximately 5-7 lb of food per day. It would seem that it would require a lot of munching, but the deer never seem to stay still for very long. In fact, the average whitetail hunter has less than seven seconds total time from the first sight of a deer to the culmination of the hunting experience, which is about the time it takes a reader to finish the following paragraph. Within that seven second time frame, he must identify the deer has a set of antlers, target the vital zone and make sure there arenÕ t any other hunters in the background. This process is often achieved in a driving rain, or while battling a wind borne snow delivered in temperatures that reach to 20 below. ItÕ s all part of our game, and there arenÕ t any referees to call time out. But we wouldnÕ t want it any other way. No two hunting days are ever the same, because conditions constantly change, and whitetails react to those changes in different ways.


Don’t answer that phone The law has been on the books for years, and many hunters are aware that two-way radios canÕ t be used to give the location of a game animal for the purpose of taking such animal. However, the law also prohibits the use of any other Ò electronic communication device,Ó which includes that Ô damn cell phoneÕ which has likely spooked more than a few deer this year. And for those nimble-fingered hunters, who believe a text is not the same as a call, youÕ d be wrong. Tipping over a deer, which you only realized due to the tip in your ear is not considered a Ò fair chaseÕ Õ harvest. I know some will disagree with such a statement, but many years later as you recount that hunt, there will always be a lingering Ô what ifÕ when you stare at that big rack on the wall.

Fling that sling, and other common mistakes It happened many ears ago, but I remember it like it occurred yesterday. I was walking out of the woods with my deer rifle slung over my shoulder. I hadn’t really given up on the hunt, I was simply too lazy to carry the gun in my hands. As I made my way through a thick patch of small pines, I jumped a real Ò racker.Ó It was only a few feet away, but by the time my gun was unslung it was gone, disappeared into the thick cover. That is when I learned to always carry my gun. I believe slings have probably saved more deer than all of the out of whack sights and scopes combined. When hunting deer, be on the hunt all the time. Too often hunters are unprepared to take a shot as they enter or exit the woods, which is often the best time of day. DonÕ t be in a hurry to get to your vehicle or back to camp, take it slow and continue to hunt hard If you stay with the hunt and concentrate, it will dramatically improve your odds of getting a shot; rather than watching a white flag bounce off into the distant forest.

Game harvest reporting period extended Hunters now have 7 days to report their harvest of deer, bear or turkey. Successful hunters of deer, bear, and turkey are required to report their harvest through the DECÕ s online reporting system or by calling 1-866-GAME-RPT (1866-426-3778). The information you can provide will only make the hunting better In the past, hunters were required to report within 48 hours of their harvest. As a measure to increase flexibility for hunters to comply with the reporting requirement, particularly for hunters who hunt in remote areas that lack cell phone coverage or internet access or both, DEC has extended the reporting deadline to within 7 days of taking the animal. Ò The man who goes afoot, prepared to camp anywhere and in any weather, is the most independent fellow on earth. Ò Horace Kephart, Camping and Woodcraft, 1917 Joe Hackett is a guide and sportsman residing in Ray Brook. Contact him at

Tick tock Hunters, especially those traveling the woods and fields of the Champlain basin should take extra cautions to protect from ticks this season. IÕ ve already received more calls, letters and emails on this topic this year than at any other point in my career. Tuck pant legs into your socks or cinch them with a rubber band or wear high top rubber boots. Avoid sitting on the bare ground whenever possible, especially in grassy areas. Look for a log to sit on, or use a strap on seat that attaches to a tree. Take the time to shake out your hunting clothes when you return home, and be sure to inspect for ticks. DonÕ t take it lightly, Lyme disease is no joke, and it can easily be contracted around here.

Jason Morgan of Willsboro recently took this nice, 217 pound, 10 point buck while hunting with his relatives in the High Peaks Region. Now that’s a healthy lifestyle!

he acorns, beechnuts, berries and fruits of many of our trees and bushes are mature and ready for picking. All of these are really seeds; some just have fancier packaging, like the apples, pears and acorns. The bright colors help aid birds and other animals to see them. Along with the colors, the nutritious meal is the plantÕ s way of making sure the seeds get eaten or carried away for the survival of that plant species. Birds and animals eat the seeds and they get deposited elsewhere in the By Rich Redman droppings. Squirrels and chipmunks all collect seeds and bury them or hide them for winter food sources. This helps spread the seeds throughout the area, where many may grow into trees, if conditions are right. Its natureÕ s way to get seeds transported throughout the planet. In some cases the seeds can just sit idle and wait. They are dormant until there is a disturbance, which creates the right ecological atmosphere for them to grow in. A fire may burn off surface organic matter which exposes mineral soil; a medium where some species prefer. A wind storm can topple trees which expose the ground to sunlight, which activates those dormant seeds to start growing. This starts the ecological plant race to see who gets the sun and who gets shaded out and dies. Some seeds have built in Velcro so they stick to your dogÕ s hair or your coat and get carried to another site. I have a collection on one of my orange sweatshirts that seems to be a sticky seed magnet. I donÕ t have the patience to pick each seed off, so I wear the shirt and deal with it. Who cares? My existence doesnÕ t depend on fashion! These acorns, berries and other fruits and sticky things all contain the seeds for the next generation of plants. A plantÕ s goal is to grow and reproduce. NatureÕ s marketing campaign seems to work. Plants are everywhere. As a soul who likes to manage the woods and fields, I have carried pockets full of acorns, seeds and fruits home in my coats, pants and empty coffee cups for years. Now I carry zip lock bags to collect seeds in. The mud room and kitchen table all have seen my daily collections and have been used to sort out the numerous seeds collected that day. Maybe thatÕ s why my hunting score is low. I am spending my time observing trees, the forest, streams and wetlands and wandering through the woods, taking my gun for a walk, always wanting to know what is on the other side of that hill before me! Once I have my collection together, I plant the seeds in 4 by 8 nursery boxes to get them started. A mix of compost and sand works great for a seedbed. The following spring or summer, if they are large enough, I transplant them. I may need to wait a second year to allow them to get large enough and establish a sound root system, before moving them to their final home. I have collected walnuts, acorns for oak trees, high bush cranberry, winterberries, wild raisins and numerous other seeds to get my wildlife planting. Wild apples crushed and then the mess spread out in a planting box works great. In time small wild apple trees grow if you weed out the bed. I thought I was the only nut who collected nuts, but I found a similar character who shares the passion. Every once in a while you meet that someone who does something extra to give back to wildlife. Such a man lives in our area. He wishes to remain anonymous and I respect his desire for the lack of fame. I will call him Johnny Acorn! For 20 years now, this 83 year old, seasoned outdoorsman has collected five gallon buckets of oak acorns in the fall. Then while on hikes and hunting excursions throughout the Adirondacks, with his red and black checkered hunting coat pockets filled to the wool flaps, he would plant acorns in openings and isolated spots to help provide a source of wildlife food for the future. He has planted white and red oak acorns for two decades now and his offspring of oaks grow throughout the area. I took a tour with the man and he showed me his work of art; his PicassoÕ s of the smooth and woody bark tree world. Red, white and swamp oak plantings growing in thickets of pine and maple. With the memory of a young man, he was able to show me some of the first oaks that started from his acorn plantings. Many are now 3 or 4 inches in diameter at breast height; slow growers because of poor soils and because they were deliberately planted in the shade of white pines, hopefully protected from the mouths of hungry deer. This passion started when he saw the beech trees dying off years ago. He knew the wildlife needed the nuts for food, so he took on the chore of assisting Mother Nature. Sometimes he would transplant oak seedlings, but mostly just planted acorns. With a sharp stick in hand he would walk along and just poke a hole into the earth and drop in an acorn, step it in with his hunting boot and walk on. Survival was in the hands of Mother Earth and God now. The whitetails have had their share of JohnnyÕ s trees. We saw numerous ones that were browsed heavily, with a shape more like a bush than a tree. He has lost many to over browsing, but continued planting each and every year. Eventually some out grew the mouths of the deer and are now tall enough to survive. He told me: Ò plant as many as you can, wherever you can; the good ones are the ones that grow; nature will sort it all outÓ . As we drove home from the tour, he told me he wonÕ t be around long enough to see what happens to his trees. Over the years he has lost many, but many more oaks will survive to live long after Johnny Acorn is gone. This manÕ s oak tree legacy will remain. I will never forget where his trees are located. When my friend Johnny is gone, he now knows, I will take care of them for him and carry on the Johnny Acorn tradition.
