By Jeremiah S. Papineau REDFORD — When Whitey and Flo Keese lost their summer camp home on Cold Brook Road to an electrical fire Christmas Day, friends of the longtime local musicians wanted to do something to help. Earl Southmayd of Black Brook and Florence Collins of Cadyville decided to organize a benefit in the Keeses’ honor, to help recoup the family’s losses. “I came up with the idea because Whitey Keese has done more benefits for everybody in this North Country than anybody,” said Southmayd. “If somebody ever had a problem, he See WHITEY AND FLO, page 7

Cardiovascular disease is the single greatest cause of death in the United States each year causing more than 2,406 deaths per day - that’s nearly one cardiac death every two minutes! For over 40 years, Congress has designated February as American Heart Month. Please join the battle this year to recognize and fight heart disease in your work place, home and community. You can make a difference. Learn how to reduce these deaths through prevention, education and emergency response training.




GOOD NEWS: HEART ATTACKS ARE ALMOST ENTIRELY PREVENTABLE. 75% of American adults already show traces of dangerous fat in their arteries that contribute to cardiac arrest. To protect yourself from heart disease follow these guidelines: • Maintain a healthy balanced diet. • Exercise regularly for at least 20 minutes, 3 times a week. • Avoid preventable risk factors such as stress, smoking and high blood pressure.

EARLY DETECTION SAVES LIVES. Half of all heart attack victims wait more than two hours before seeking help. If symptoms are recognized and treated sooner, fatality rates drop drastically. If you or someone you know has chest discomfort for more than two minutes, call emergency medical services immediately. The following symptoms are warning signs of cardiac arrest: • Pain or discomfort centered in the chest area, which may radiate to left arm, neck, back or jaw. • Sweating and shortness of breath • Nausea or vomiting • Dizziness or fainting • Palpitations or rapid heart beats

he is not to be approached, authorities said. Those with any information about Pavone or his whereabouts are asked to contact authorities at 563-3761 or call 9-1-1. “Call us and we’ll check it out,” said Smith. (Editor’s Note: As this story went to press Wednesday, police were still searching for Pavone. The latest information on this story can be found on our Web site,


SECOND COUNTS! IMMEDIATE RESPONSE IS CRITICAL. 95% of people who suffer sudden cardiac arrest die before reaching the hospital. Knowing what to do before help arrives can mean the difference between life and death. Administering cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) within 4 minutes greatly reduces the risk of brain damage. Furthermore, automated external defibrillation (AED) within 5 minutes increases chances of survival by 40%. AEDs are accurate, easy to operate and now commonly found in our work places and communities. Whether you take a First Aid, CPR, and/ or AED course, your time will be well spent. You will leave these courses with the knowledge and skills to make a significant difference in someone’s life.

ADKYP continues their commitment to the community Third annual economic forum, soup kitchen volunteering among activities planned By Jeremiah S. Papineau PLATTSBURGH — The Adirondack Young Professionals want to keep young professionals in our region. The nonprofit organization, known as ADKYP, has entered its third year in existence, with its continued mission to create networking opportunities for young professionals in the North Country. Keri L. Mack, president of the ADKYP board of directors, said much has been done in the community since the organization was formed in 2007, then under the name of “hYPe.” And, though the organization changed its name to better identify with the region it represents, its vision has remained the same. “The focus is to create opportunities for young professionals to socialize, network and serve,” said Mack. “Our hopes are that people will connect with us when they move in to the area and we’ll be able to connect them to other young professionals in their field or with social activities that they’re interested in, so they will want to stay and work here.” That’s a challenge not uncommon in communities across the country, said Mack. Nevertheless, it’s important to the ADKYP to continue coming up with new ways to prevent the loss

of young, talented individuals. “It’s important to our workforce and it’s important to the entire United States,” said Mack. “In order to do that, with this generation, you have to provide professional opportunities and you have to provide ways of socialization.” The ADKYP has hosted several networking events since it was established, giving young professionals opportunities to meet one other and discuss common interests. However, the events haven’t only been about socializing. “Whenever we host a networking event, we connect it to fundraising for an organization,” said Mack. “We’ve done events for the Adirondack Humane Society, Red Cross, STOP Domestic Violence, the local food shelf and many others.” Why is it so important to ADKYP members to do this? “We want to help the communities where we work. And, that’s a way we can give back to the community,” said Mack. The other way is for the group to host events like one planned for Tuesday, Feb. 16 — an economic forum to be hosted at Olive Ridley’s on Court Street. The forum — which is the third of its kind hosted by the group — features a panel comprised of community leaders who will

answer questions of young professionals related to economic concerns and the like, said Mack. “There will be a chance to ask questions on a variety of issues — job creation, up and coming jobs, arts and culture ... various topics important to young professionals,” she said. The public forum will be held from 5-7 p.m. and be moderated by Paul Sands, general manager of WPTZ Newschannel 5. The event is also one Mack hopes will encourage people to join the ADKYP and potentially serve on its board of directors. “This is an opportunity to be involved in your community,” said Mack. For more information about the Adirondack Young Professionals, contact Mack at 561-4295 or via e-mail at The organization also has a Facebook page which is easily found by searching for ADKYP. The group’s Web site,, is currently under construction.

What’s Internet neutrality? Does it affect me? I


Adirondack Humane Society

nternet neutrality is the concept of advocating no restrictions on Internet content, communication or devices. Many users think neutrality exists now, and for the most part it does, but efforts to restrict use are clearly in play. One Internet service provider, Comcast, intentionally slowed Internet traffic based on the peer-to-peer (P2P) protocol which is a legitimate file transfer protocol. However, it is also the protocol of choice among copyright content pirates. Comcast throttled the user ’s download when the P2P protocol was detected because, in Comcast’s eyes, the user was downloading pirated content. The problem with that approach is a user downloading a legitimate copy of Fedora Core 12, a Linux operating system, via P2P would also be slowed as Comcast had no way of knowing if the P2P file pieces were legal or illegal content. Other companies have discriminated further against customers by deep packet inspection techniques which fine tunes the route Comcast took but allows the ISP to know the exact content in order to drive the decision to block the download or not.

Consumer rights advocates are not thrilled with the idea believing that if a subscriber pays for Internet access that nobody, including the ISP, has the right to censor the data traffic. Service providers think they have every right to control traffic on their network. They argue that a few users can account for a high amount of throughput affecting everyone’s Internet experience so controlling the few is good business for all. The FCC is not impressed with any access control effort. Having the most control over Internet neutrality, the FCC has written regulations that prevent ISPs from undertaking By Ron Poland any type of Internet traffic gate keeping. The rules that will be voted on later this year can be found on

ew York State has recognized that an unprecedented number of older drivers are on the road. Approximately one in every seven drivers now is age 65 or older. As the baby boomers arrive at the threshold of retirement, the percentage of older drivers will continue to grow. By 2029, approximately one in four drivers will be age 65 or older. To respond to this trend, the Commissioner of Motor Vehicles had created the Office for the Older Driver. This Department is to serve as a clearinghouse of information for mature drivers and their families. The office has created a Web site with driving tips, links to often-used forms and publications, what to look for in a vehicle, and evaluating the driver. The office is also working on other projects across the State, including promoting the “Car Fit” Program in conjunction with AAA, the AARP and the American Occupational Therapy Association. Car Fit seeks to help drivers to make vehicle adjustments so that they are as safe and comfortable in their vehicles as possible. The new Web site for NYSDMV Office for the Older Driver is Among the many on-line offerings, they provide the fol-

lowing suggestions for older drivers: • Always wear your seat belt. • Look for vehicles that enter the highway from curbs, driveways and businesses. • Be alert for parked cars, pedestrians and cyclists. • Check for traffic behind you. Turn your head and neck and look over your shoulder before you turn or change traffic lanes. • Do not expect that you will be given the right of way, even if you know it ought to be given to you. • Make sure that it is safe to pass or change traffic lanes before you do. • Try not to drive at dusk or dawn when you cannot see as well

Multi-stacking to magnify those savings


n previous columns, I’ve discussed coupon stacking at great length. It’s one of the easiest ways not only to reduce the cost of items we’re buying but also to get items for free. Many stores allow shoppers to stack one store coupon and one manufacturer coupon together, which gives us an even deeper discount on the same item. Just a few days ago I purchased a $2.50 tube of toothpaste. I used a $1.50 manufacturer coupon for the toothpaste and I added to it a $1 store-issued coupon for the same toothpaste. With a total of $2.50 in coupon value, the toothpaste was free! And free is, of course, my favorite price to pay. Store coupons are offered in different formats, so it’s important to note which kinds your stores offer. Do some research. Many stores print their store coupons in a weekly flyer. Others offer printable coupons on the store’s Web site. Still others offer store coupons electronically. These electronic coupons can be loaded to your shoppers’ card and stacked with manufacturer coupons for additional savings. Now, when we combine coupon stacking with other deals running at the store at the same time, our savings increase even more. What’s better than stacking? Multi-stacking! When we multi-stack at the store, we use both store and manufacturer coupons and take advantage of additional moneyback deals involved. These additional deals typically offer instant savings at the register or a money-back coupon (commonly called a Catalina) that prints at the register for savings on a subsequent shopping trip. Here’s an example. One of my stores recently advertised a sale offering a Catalina coupon good for $5 off your next shopping trip if you purchased any two items in the flyer. When I see an advertisement like this, I immediately look for the items that are going to be the best deals — typically, the items for which I already have both store and manufacturer coupons. During this particular sale, the store had triple-packs of

baby wipes on sale for $5.99. Buying two items in the promotion will earn me a $5 coupon for my next shopping trip. To keep track of my savings, I always figure that $5 savings into my current shopping trip. I may pay that $5 out-of-pocket at the register to buy these items today but I get it right back in the form of a Catalina good for $5 off my next shopping trip. So, buying two packages of wipes costs $11.98 but I’ll get $5 of that back at checkout. That essentially brings the cost of the two packages of wipes down to $6.98 for 2 packages. To bring the price down further, we’re goBy Jill Cataldo ing to stack coupons here, too! I had a manufacturer coupon for $2 off 2 packages of wipes. The wipes were also on my electronic store coupons for $1.50 off each package. So, stacking these coupons together yields another $5 in savings. After coupons, I paid $6.98 for the two triple-packs of baby wipes and I received the $5 Catalina coupon at the register. Since I got $5 of my original $6.98 back, the end cost of these two items was just $1.98! Triple-packs of baby wipes at less than a dollar a package? That’s a great price … made possible by multi-stacking! Consider that each triple-pack started out at $5.99 before all of these discounts were put together. Any time I see sales at the supermarket that involve money-back promotions, I always look for both store and manufacturer coupons to help reduce the final price I pay even further. In the weeks ahead, I’ll show you more examples of multi-stacking and explain how to make the most out of these promotions.

Red Cross supporters Baby, it’s cold outside ... but not for plants help Haiti relief effort I T

he North Country has responded with open hearts – as of January 28, 2010 the North Country Chapter American Red Cross has collected $27,148.74 for the Haiti Relief effort. To date, the American Red Cross has spent or committed more than $67 million to meet the most urgent needs of the earthquake survivors. During the critical phase of the relief operation, the American Red Cross is focusing on three areas through its emergency responders and nonprofit partners: 1. Sending food to those in need including 3 million prepackaged meals and funding for the World Food Program efforts that will enable them to feed up to 1 million people for a month. 2. Providing clean drinking water, including 3.5 million liters distributed to date in nearly 70 settlements. Each day the Red Cross is distributing enough water for 100,000 people. 3. Distributing shelter items to thousands of people, including blankets, tarps, sleeping mats and tents. This is an enormous relief effort operation now, but we also know it will be a massive long- term recovery effort and the Red Cross will be there throughout. This is the largest single-country personnel deployment in global Red Cross history. It is clear that what took minutes to destroy will take many years and the collective support from governments and relief agencies across the world to help mend. Our North Country dollars are apart of all the American Red Cross relief efforts in Haiti.

f I had to guess what most people have been thinking about recently, it would be the extremely frigid temperatures we have been experiencing. But, what about your outdoor plants? What do they do to get through the cold? A plant’s ability to survive freezing temperatures depends on that plant’s ability to acclimate to the cold. Certain environmental stimuli such as short-days and low temperatures in the fall trigger changes in the plant that allow the plant to survive the cold. One of the first changes the plant undergoes is going dormant. Then when below-freezing temperatures set in, the plant takes water out of its cells. The area between the plant cells freeze, protecting individual cells from damage. While we know this, what we don’t know is why certain plants can tolerate the cold more than others. Therefore, when purchasing plants it is best to determine what USDA plant hardiness zone you live in (either 3 or 4 around here) and only landscape with plant that can survive winters where you live. Even if you only use plants that are hardy to this area, it also helps to know about the most common types of winter injury and how to manage these injuries. Desiccation occurs when plant material dries out and is seen more often in evergreens because they keep their needles

year-round. This injury causes needles and leaves to look discolored or burned. Desiccation occurs when water leaves the plant faster than it can be taken up. Strong winds are one reason plants may lose water. Sunny weather is another. Because our soils freeze during the winter, it is difficult for plants to take up water that is lost during the winter months. Properly watering your plants is one of the best ways to prevent desiccation from occurring. If autumn rains have been insufficient, give your plants a deep soaking to the entire root system just before the ground freezes. Water your evergreens if we have a warm spell and the ground unfreezes. This is especially important in February and March as the sunlight becomes more direct. Mulching helps maintain uniform soil moisture around the roots and helps decrease the chances of desiccation. Homeowners can also protect small evergreens by making windbreaks out of burlap or canvas. These reduce the force of the wind and shade the plant. Avoid using plastic as a wrap. Too much heat builds up in the plastic. Anne Lenox Barlow is the horticulture educator with Cornell Cooperative Extension in Clinton County.

My journey to the half-marathon

By Martha Breyette

(Editors Note: Martha Breyette of Saranac is on a 14-week goal to get in shape to compete in the inaugural City of Plattsburgh Half Marathon, Sunday, April 18. Breyette will share her trials and tribulations in this newspaper through a weekly journal entry.)

Week Three


eek 3 was a learning week for me ... First, I ran 4.5 miles, so, that was really exciting. I am seeing definite improvement in my confidence. I have had so much support and encouragement from my family, friends, and co-workers. It is amazing! My mom has been calling me every day to see how I am doing and let me know she is always in my corner. I am starting to see some physical changes as I continue to lose a couple of pounds each week. I did have a couple of obstacles this week. First, I don’t think I was eating quite enough carbohydrates as I was feeling pretty sluggish a couple of days. So, Mary, my coach, helped show me some “good carbohydrate” options that I like to eat. Secondly, I started getting light-headed and dizzy. Come to find out, I think I was drinking too much water — if you can believe it. I always thought water was good, but too much of anything has an effect. My problem was I was drinking plenty of water but on top of it I was drinking a sizable amount of Gatorade as well and not counting this in my daily intake of fluids. Now that I have changed these practices, I am feeling much better and stronger. I have another big goal this weekend — I am supposed to run 5 miles, so, let’s see how I get through that. For those of you still wondering if you can change your lifestyle, I would say pick one thing — be it diet, exercise or whatever — and stick to it. Make yourself a priority and you will feel rewarded for it in the end.

SATURDAY February 6, 2010

Good government cannot exist in a vacuum L ast summer, First Lady Michelle Obama was criticized for having hired an “unprecedented number of staffers” to “cater to her every whim and to satisfy her every request in the midst of the Great Recession.” An e-mail campaign followed that included information stating that with 22 staffers with combined annual salaries of $1.6 million, the First Lady had amassed an army of employees greater than any before her. The e-mail claimed that prior first ladies had nowhere near as many employees, saying Jackie Kennedy, Rosalynn Carter and Laura Bush had just one while even Hillary Clinton had only three. The truth, of course, lay somewhere in between. When contacted by the national media, Katie McCormick Lelyveld, Michelle Obama’s press secretary, actually put the first lady’s office staff at 24. That may indeed be the largest of any first lady to date. But other assertions were way off. Hillary Clinton actually had 19 staffers answering directly to her, while Laura Bush wasn’t far behind with 18 and $1.4 million in annual salaries. In this instance the media did its job. Disclosure not only gave Americans the facts to form their own conclusions but also dispelled the hearsay that all too often runs rampant in politics. As common as this is at the federal level, it is perhaps even more so on the local level. It is for this reason that I want to publicly commend our Essex County Board of Supervisors for tackling the sensitive issue of its own hiring practices by forming an ethics committee subject to public scrutiny. Have there been instances in which relatives have received preferential treatment in obtaining a job at the county? Personally, I don’t believe so. I know many hard working county employees I’d be proud to work alongside in the private sector. I honestly don’t believe anyone was handed a job simply because of their last name. I believe County Manager Dan Palmer when he says —

like any private sector employer — that a department head would want to choose the most qualified, hardest working person for the job. After all, you’re only as good as the individuals you surround yourself with. But do I believe the public has a right to know when a department head hires a direct relative or that of a county supervisor? Definitely. Unlike the private sector, county government is answerable to the taxpayer. To make informed decisions about elected officials and the policies they put in place, the public needs to know these facts. More so, they have the right to know. If for nothing else than, as in the case of Obama, to dispel the vicious rumors that propagate when government exists in a vacuum. Good government is open government, and it should be the job of not only the media but the public as a whole to demand that. Following the article we published a few weeks ago reporting that Sandy Lewis addressed the county board urging full disclosure with the county’s hiring practices, we were criticized on a number of fronts. We were criticized for singling out people. We were criticized for not having the facts straight when the article first broke — for sensationalizing a non-issue in the interest of “selling papers.” (My personal favorite, considering our papers are free.) Valid arguments, although ones I would dispute. The facts in this case were anything but easy to acquire, and they remain not fully disclosed to this day. Nevertheless, Lewis and the subsequent media coverage at least started a dialogue — one that has led to greater transparency. Call it the journalist in me — but I can’t see the downside to that.

Birthright was always there to do a benefit for them. I thought it was time somebody did something for him.” “They’re always willing and able to help anyone else,” said Collins. While the camp has traditionally been the home of an annual music-filled campout hosted by the Keeses every August, it was most recently the home of the Keeses’ daughter, Wanda McIntyre, and their two granddaughters, Breanna and Nicole. Southmayd said that made the fire especially heartbreaking. “It’s just a shame,” said Southmayd. The benefit, planned for next Sunday, Feb. 14, aims to raise money for the Keese and McIntyre families. The event, to be held at the Assumption of

Mary School on Clinton Street from 1-5 p.m., will consist of a spaghetti dinner. The cost will be $10 per dinner, with take-outs available. Entertainment will be a big part of the event, said Collins, with music to be provided by the Saranac Fiddlers, Happy Time Ramblers and the Donnie Perkins Family Band. “We just want people to come up and listen to the music, eat and enjoy themselves,” said Collins. Raffles and 50/50 drawings will also be held hourly, she said, and door prizes will be awarded. For more information about the benefit or how to help the Keese and McIntyre families, contact Southmayd at 643-8418 or Collins at 293-7031.

From page 1 Students who participated were required to practice math facts for 10 minutes a day in the company of a parent, guardian, childcare provider or even an older sibling. The students then had to collect pledges of donations to the food shelf based on the amount of time they practiced things such as counting objects, reviewing flash cards, and even playing board games where math is involved. “We’ve decided to go that route, but because we always need to work with an educational angle besides, of course, the lesson of helping others,” said Ott. “So, we decided to come up with the idea of children processing their math facts in earning sponsorships for those.” Ott said while past efforts have focused on raising money for initiatives like the “Chelsea Rainbow Fund Project,” an effort in 2005 to raise money for children of the North Country with cancer, the school has wanted to continue to do projects that don’t involve raising actual dollars. “Last year ’s worked out well that way,” said Ott, referring to 2009’s “Project Helping Hands,” which instead of money, “collected” volunteers to help various nonprofit organizations in the area. “We thought it was a really good idea,” Ott said of this year ’s project, “and we’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback from our community about the project. The response was pretty darn good.” Pretty darn good, indeed. The students sur-

passed their goal by nearly 500 items, said Ott. “When we had our culminating assembly, we had 3,019 items boxed and ready to go, with a total of 3,475 pledged,” said Ott, who gave students an extra week to bring in any extra donations. Fifth-grader Victoria Bruno said she enjoyed participating in the project because she knows the donations will greatly assist the food shelf. “I think it was the best project yet because we helped a lot of people,” said Bruno. “It felt really good to work together.” “It felt really good to help other people because we did it all together,” agreed fifth-grader Grace Thew. “We’re very lucky and fortunate to have all this food.” Sophia Stevens, another fifth-grade student, said a project like this helps students such as herself understand each person can make a difference. “I think it’s good to get us involved at a young age, because when we get older, we can help even more,” said Stevens. “It’s such a lot of fun to see the kids get it,” Ott said of the concept of helping others. “Our whole point is to help our neighbors in the North Country. And, it’s important to know the lessons learned this year are as valid and as important as they were 14 years ago.” “None of us could have done this singlehanded,” he added. “Everybody who participated in this helped prove our concept that together, we can.”

New life being breathed into local ice arena By Sarah L. Cronk PLATTSBURGH — For the last eight years, the Lake City Stars Arena on Sharron Avenue has been owned and operated by Thomas Dowhan of Vermont. Recently however, two community-oriented guys have taken over. The newly renamed Ameri-Can North Sports Center, co-owned by Jamie Reidy and Craig Worley, has the potential to be a “family place.” “We see the potential here,” explained Worley. “We just want to make it better for the community. The youth especially. Make it a family place once again.” After officially taking ownership of the building in late-December, Worley and Reidy set out to fix up the ice arena, which is opened yearround. “Their refrigeration was in rough shape, the zamboni was in rough shape,” recalled Worley. “The building in general was just dirty and not in good shape.” After receiving a loan from NBT Bank, of who Worley said saw “the potential and they believe in the building, too,” changes began to take shape at the center. “We’ve put in a lot of carpet. we’ve put in a new scorers booth,” Worley explained, adding new lights over the ice are also being added. “We’ve just done an awful lot of work.” Currently the arena is the homeice for Beekmantown Central School, Saranac Central School, Plattsburgh Youth Hockey Road Runners, the Plattsburgh Junior Cardinals, and a men’s league.

“It’s a year-round facility, so we want to be kind of the place that everybody wants to come to play hockey,” explained Worley. “We want to offer any of the teams, people, a clean environment.” However, hockey players won’t be the only people benefitting from what the arena has to offer. According to Worley, public skating and stick & puck games are currently being added to the calendar of events. “Everyone has to wear a helmet,” he explained of stick & puck. “You

can go out with a stick and we put the nets out and some people dress as goalies so you can kind of fool around.” Worley sees the stick & puck as time for people to have pick-up games that children and adults can enjoy. Rockin’ Skates is another idea Worley and Reidy hope to see in the near-future. “It’s kind of the premise of rollerskating, but it’s ice skating,” Worley explained. “You go out on the ice and we’ll turn the lights off and

put in colored lights and a disco ball and music.” Worley plans to advertise Rockin’ Skates as a place to go that will be drug- and alcohol-free. Other programs the co-owners hope to promote will be hockey schools during the summer months. Reidy, who previously skated for the Plattsburgh State Cardinal Hockey Team and on the national championship team in the 80s, followed by playing a stint in the minors. “He’s got a lot of ties to NHL

players,” Worley explained. “People at that are still involved with junior hockey, right up through professional hockey.” Using his connections, Reidy plans to bring in Jerry Dineen, a coach for the New York Rangers, who also used to play on the Cardinal Hockey Team, to help with the hockey school. “[Hockey] used to be much bigger,” Worley explained. “When I was growing up, every town had a team.” Now, Worley has found with the expense of equipment and ice time, the number of people involved in the sport in recent years has lulled. “The numbers are coming back and more parents seem to be getting involved,” he said. With parents becoming more involved, Worley has not forgotten them when planning out the additions to the building. The center now has two new flatscreen televisions, which will air sports programs for parents to keep an eye on sports scores while waiting for their children. “There’s sports on all the time,” laughed Worley. “You don’t have to miss a game.” The new additions to the arena all add up to a place for children, and adults to have fun. Which is why birthday parties are also offered. The parties are $15 per child, with a minimum of 10 children required. “That also includes pizza, soda and a place to do your thing,” said Worley. For more information about the arena, including how to book a birthday party and calendar of events, visit or call 5617672.

Deer take numbers to be released this month S

tate environmental officials should be releasing deer harvest figures for 2009 any day now, but indications are that northern zone totals could be down by as much as 20 percent. DEC Wildlife Biologist Ed Reed said he’s been told by Albany staff to expect deer take results “in early February.” If the indications ring true, the overall northern zone take could be in the neighborhood of 27,000-29,000 deer, down from 33,938 in 2008 and 31,797 in 2007. Nevertheless, the DEC believes statewide totals will remain fairly flat from 2008, or slightly below the 222,979 deer taken during the 2008 season. That compares to 219,141 taken in 2007, and 189,108 in 2006. The highest total came in 2002 when hunters took 308,216 deer, 128,292 of which were bucks. Reed attributed the poor northern zone take to difficult weather conditions, saying the deer simply weren’t moving as much during daylight hours. From my personal experience, that certainly was the case, although some areas that got hit hardest by harsh conditions last winter seemed to have less deer this season than usual. Near my home in Westport, however, the deer are out in force. I counted 37 merrily feeding away in one field a few evenings ago. It doesn’t appear as if last winter had much of an affect on the herd there.

Silver Bullet Meanwhile, Dick Johndrow, AKA “Silver Bullet,” sent me a photo of a massive 20-pointer he scored for a 41-year-old hunter from Long Island. Johndrow serves as measurer chairman for the New York State Big Buck Club. The 20-pointer, taken with a bow on Oct. 26, 2009 by Bjorn Holubar, scored a net Boone & Crockett 202 and 5/8 inches, making it the number two non-typical buck killed with a bow in the state.

The deer weighed 210 pounds, had 10 nontypical points including a unique drop tine and had an inside spread of 20 and 3/8 inches. The deer was dropped at 43 yards with a Bowtech Mighty Mite Bow and a 100-grain Muzzy broadhead. Bjorn, according to Johndrow, hunted a total of 60 days last fall.
