Drop-off recent act of animal neglect By Jeremiah S. Papineau jeremiah@denpubs.com

Round and round we go The 154th annual Redford Picnic, held at the Church of the Assumption in Redford Aug. 16, attracted people from across the area with entertainment, food, games of chance and one of the event’s most popular attractions, the Redford Carousel. The carousel, which is believed to the oldest in North America, dating back to the 1890s, has been a long-standing feature of the picnic since it was donated to the Church of Assumption in 1910. The ride came complete with musical accompaniment by town resident Phil Rice, not pictured, on the calliope. Photo by Jeremiah S. Papineau

PERU — Whatever the reason, the number of animals being abandoned is growing. According Elmore SPCA manager Kelly Allen, the shelter has seen an increase in the number of abandoned animals it has taken in, with it’s most recent case being a young dog affectionately nicknamed “Pinky.” The dog was dropped off in a pasture not far from the Arthur Road shelter Aug. 11, housed in a wire crate with no identification and left in the pouring rain. “The thing about this case is, the little girl is very well taken care of, and obviously spoiled,” said Allen. “Everything

Allen said her main concern is finding out what the animal’s name is, her age and whether

Softball tournament to benefit memorial scholarship fund American Legion Post 1619 to host event in memory of Stephanie Heath, Courtney Alexander Sept. 5 and 6 By Sarah L. Cronk sarah@denpubs.com WEST PLATTSBURGH — Ever since a car accident claimed the lives of Saranac teens Stephanie Heath and Courtney Alexander March 31, the community has joined to to help their families in any way possible. Bill LeBeau, neighbor and friend of Jill Heath, Stephanie’s mother, is no exception. “At the time it happened, [Heath] was so overwhelmed with people and I kind of just sat back and I mentioned to her, anything I can do, I would try to do for her,” LeBeau explained. Now, five months later, LeBeau has worked with Heath and Cindy Alexander, Courtney’s mother, to put together an Old School Softball Tournament, to be held at the American Legion Post 1619, Saturday, Sept. 5, and Sunday, Sept. 6. Currently, LeBeau is looking for softball teams to sign up for the tournament, which

is a $150 entry fee. All proceeds from the tournament will be matched by the American Legion. “It’s all going to go into the girls’ scholarship fund,” said Heath. The Stephanie and Courtney Memorial Scholarship Fund was established to help a Saranac Senior High School senior who is looking to become a nurse, and does not have a full scholarship to attend college. Alexander explained both of the girls had planned on becoming nurses and were already accepted into the program at Clinton Community College. Both Alexander and Heath felt a scholarship fund was appropriate, because their daughters were always the first to step up and help someone in need. “When the girls passed away, there were three families that didn’t have enough money to buy announcements for their graduation,” recalled Heath. “Cindy and I donated

Battle of Plattsburgh plans unveiled for this September By Jeremiah S. Papineau jeremiah@denpubs.com

Drawn to history Plattsburgh City Mayor Donald M. Kasprzak poses with winners of the Battle of Plattsburgh Poster Contest during a press conference at City Hall Aug. 18. The winner of the contest was Kelsey Hulbert of Plattsburgh, center. She was joined, from left, by second place winner Jacob Mossey of Altona and third place winner Danilo Nocher of Peru. Their entries were chosen from among 300 submitted from students across Clinton and Essex counties. Hulbert’s entry will be featured on the official 2009 Battle of Plattsburgh pin, which will be sold as both a souvenir and as an item that will give its wearer admission to the week’s events.

PLATTSBURGH — As September draws closer, so does the annual commemoration of the Battle of Plattsburgh. During a press conference held at City Hall Aug. 18, Battle of Plattsburgh Commemoration Committee co-chairpersons Gary VanCour and Christopher “Kit” Booth announced plans for the upcoming event, to be held Monday, Sept. 7, through Sunday, Sept. 13. The committee has put together a host of historical reenactments, musical performances and other family-oriented activities for what will be its 12th annual event, said VanCour. Most people already identify the weeklong event as a historical commemoration, VanCour said. However, the week has also come to be know for its entertainment and for being a cultural event. “We specifically call it a commemoration and not a celebration or festival because we like to bring attention to the sacrifices that were made on all sides,” said Vancour. “We have, yes, a historic event, but we also have a musical event and we want people to take advantage of that.” “I’d say that there’s something there for everybody,” he added. The annual cost of the event is approximately $90,000, said Booth, and is largely possible due to the generosity of 30-40 major sponsors, some of which include Key Bank,

NBT Bank, Eagle’s Nest Veterinary Hospital, Northern Insuring and the Plattsburgh Noon Rotary Club. Sales of buttons which give people access to all Battle of Plattsburgh events have also helped continue the event, Booth noted “Those are all significant amounts of money but every penny we get helps as well,” said Booth. “It boggles my mind that how generous this community is over and over and over again.” This year, the Battle of Plattsburgh Commemoration Committee also received $5,550 through a Lake Champlain Basin Program Quadricentennial grant, which Booth and Vancour both acknowledged as helping significantly. “That’s probably a one-time thing, but we’re very appreciative of that,” said Booth. The Battle of Plattsburgh will tie in with this year ’s Hudson-Fulton-Champlain Quadricentennial, which, in part, celebrates French explorer Samuel de Champlain’s exploration of the region. The most prominent tie, said VanCour, will be the theme of the commemoration’s annual parade, which will be called “The French Connection.” Grand marshals of this year ’s parade will be Celine R. Paquette, Champlain, co-chair of the Hudson-Fulton-Champlain Quadricentennial Commission, and Claude Vachon, a Quebec representative of the Parliament of Canada. More details about the Battle of Plattsburgh Commemoration are available on-line at www.battleofplattsburgh.org, including a full schedule of events.

Run for Jon returning to Forrence Orchards PERU — The 19th annual Run for Jon race will be held Saturday, Aug. 29, at 5 p.m. at Forrence Orchards, Mannix Road. Registration for the event will be held from 3:30-4:45 p.m. The event will have a 2.5-mile cross-country race through the orchard, a one-mile cross-country walk, and a special fun run for kids. The event raises money for the families of local children with serious medical problems and to honor the memory of Jon Evans. More than $4,000 was raised in 2008, which saw more than 200 participants. This year, the races will be scored electronically. A test run was done last year and the software was found successful. The software, RunScore, was donated by its author Alan Jones of Binghamton. It is used in hundreds of races across the country and provides other functions such as e-mail lists, snail mail lists, and has numerous sorting options for the race results. It has been used in such events as high school cross-country meets to large road races with hundreds of runners and many divisions For more information, visit www.runforjon.com or e-mail runforjoninfo@gmail.com.

Benefit Sunday for Morrisonville woman diagnosed with advanced breast cancer By Jeremiah S. Papineau jeremiah@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — Debbie Thornton has been friends with René Arnold for nearly 20 years and would do anything for her. When the Morrisonville woman was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer earlier this year, Thornton was by her friend’s side, offering to help in any way she could. “René would do the same for anyone else. She’s just a kind-hearted, giving person,” Thornton said. As a single mother of two teenage sons, Arnold has been doing her best to keep her spirits up, particularly for her boys, Thornton said. “She’s been handling this as best she can. I don’t know if I could be as strong as she is,” said Thornton. “She’s giving it her all.” “René’s a special person and it’s terrible for her to have to go through this at 46 years old — it’s not good at any age,” she added. Kathleen Rushford, who works with Arnold at the Wyeth Pharmaceuticals research facility in Chazy, said she and

her fellow co-workers have felt a void without Arnold since she’s been out of work because of her illness. “We all miss her,” said Rushford. As a sign of their support, Rushford has joined with Thornton and some of Arnold’s other friends and co-workers to hold a benefit this Sunday, Aug. 23, in her honor. The benefit, which will assist Arnold with her medical expenses, will be held at Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 125, 116 Boynton Ave., beginning at 12 p.m. As word spread of the benefit and Arnold’s condition, many people have offered their support as well, said Rushford. Employees from the Wyeth Pharmaceuticals facility in Rouses Point and the Clinton County Sheriff ’s Department in Plattsburgh — both where Arnold previously worked — have also shown their support by making contributions toward the benefit, said Rushford. In addition, local businesses from the Morrisonville-Plattsburgh area and Arnold’s hometown of Tupper Lake have contributed toward the event. “Everyone has been really great,” Rushford said. “I really hope this benefit goes well for her. She deserves

that.” “She’d be the first one doing this for someone else,” said Thornton. “Seeing how many people really do care for her would really boost her morale.” The cost of the spaghetti dinner will be $10 per person and include salad, garlic bread and a dessert. The desserts are being made by employees at the Wyeth facilities in Chazy and Rouses Point and friends of Arnold. “We really want to thank all of them,” she said. Michigans will also be served, with those purchasing a dinner to receive a ticket to vote in a michigan sauce contest. The winner of the contest will have a donation made in their name to benefit Arnold. The event will also include a 50-50 drawing, raffles and auctions, all which will also benefit Arnold. Entertainment will be provided by the band Heartland Express and DJ service Lisa and Company. Those unable to attend the benefit and who would still like to make a contribution toward Arnold’s medical expenses, may do so by sending donations to her at 9 Grace St., Morrisonville, N.Y. 12962.

he most important part of any computer is the data, period. The data could be a work document, Excel spreadsheet, a group of pictures or even an application that’s hard to get your hands on. If deemed important enough, users should take the time to back it up. Backing up data can be accomplished automatically or manually, today we look at two automatic options. The first option uses a flash drive. These small, easy-touse devices have been around long enough to render floppy drives obsolete. Microsoft users have access to a nice application called the Microsoft USB Flash Drive Manager. This application will help you automatically backup and restore data to and from a flash drive. The functionality built into it allows users to make an already easy-to-use device even easier. Go to microsoft.com and search for it by name. The installation file is called “UFDSetupWizard.msi” and it is a small program at 670KB. The second option is for people who work on more than one PC and would like automatic synchronization of files/folders between the computers. Syncing a file on one PC to another is what provides the redundancy of data. The option relies on a Web service called Microsoft Live Sync and it works on both Apple and Windows computers. The service requires a Windows Live account, which is free

Protect your eyes from harmful UV radiation

M

Crystal

SATURDAY August 22, 2009

ost people are aware UV radiation can burn our skin, but may not realize exposure to UV radiation can harm the eyes or other components of solar radiation can also affect vision. According to the American Optometric Association, there are three types of UV radiation: UV-C is absorbed by the ozone layer and does not present any threat; UV-A and UVB radiation can have adverse long- and short-term effects on the eyes and vision. Research has shown exposure to small amounts of UV radiation over a period of many years increases the chance of developing a cataract and may cause damage to the retina, a nerve-rich lining of the eye used for seeing. Additionally, chronic exposure to shorter wavelength visible light (i.e. blue and violet light) may also be harmful to the retina. The longer the eyes are exposed to solar radiation, the greater the risk of developing such conditions as cataracts or macular degeneration later in life. It is not known how much exposure to solar radiation will cause damage. The AOA recommends wearing quality sunglasses that offer UV protection and wearing a hat or cap with a wide brim whenever you spend time outdoors.

To provide adequate protection for your eyes, sunglasses should block out 99 to 100 percent of both UV-A and UV-B radiation; screen out 75 to 90 percent of visible light; be perfectly matched in color and free of distortion and imperfection; and have lenses that are gray for proper color recognition. Don’t forget protection for children and teenagers. Wrap around frames can provide additional protection from the harmful solar radiation. Also, be sure to see your doctor of optometry at least every two years for a comprehensive eye examination.

Twice the fun with double-coupon days

L

ast week, I mentioned pairing dollar coupons with dollar sales at the grocery store are one of my favorite ways to get items for free. Another easy way? Double-coupon days. Coupon “doubling” occurs when a store matches a coupon’s face value and passes the added bonus savings on to you, the shopper. Here’s how it works. When you go to the checkout and hand the cashier a 50-cent coupon during double-coupon days, the cashier scans it and the cash register automatically doubles the value of that coupon to $1. You receive a dollar savings on one item with one 50-cent coupon. Grocery stores handle double-coupon promotions differently. Some stores double coupons up to a certain amount every day. Others offer double-coupon promotions on certain days of the week or certain weeks of the month. Still others offer double coupons on some days and triple coupons on others. During a triple-coupon promotion, a 50-cent coupon is worth $1.50. These sales are definitely worth checking out because stores that double coupons make it very easy for shoppers to get groceries for free or at big discounts. However, in my experience, many stores have specific rules for the ways they double coupons. You’ll want to refer to your store’s coupon policy to determine exactly how your store handles these promotions. Visit the store’s Web site for the information or ask for a copy of the guidelines next time you’re shopping. For example, one national grocery store chain will double all coupons worth up to 55 cents every day of the week. Another national chain doubles coupons up to $2 each, but they only run this promotion for one week each month. Some stores will double Internet coupons, others won’t. It’s important to find out exactly how your store handles doubles so you aren’t disappointed at the checkout. Let’s go back to our example from last week, the “dollar sale” at the grocery store. Our store has many items on sale for $1, including cans of soup, toothbrushes and bags of frozen vegetables. Our store also doubles coupons up to $1 in value. How can we get things for free? Well, any coupon with a value of 50 cents will automatically be doubled to $1. I have a 50-cent coupon for the soup, a 55-cent coupon for the tooth-

brush and a 75-cent coupon for the vegetables. With those three coupons doubling in value, I’ll be taking home a can of soup, a toothbrush, and a bag of frozen veggies all free. It’s important to note, too, coupons typically do not double over the value of the item. This is different from the way some stores handle “overage,” which is when your coupon’s value exceeds the By Jill Cataldo cost of the item you’re buying. At many stores, using a $1 coupon on an item that is on sale for 75 cents will not only give you that item for free, it will also take an extra quarter off your total purchase. This is the overage value that was left over after your $1 coupon paid for your 75-cent item. However, when a store offers double coupons, they’re matching the coupon’s value out of their own pocket. So, using a $2 coupon on a $3.79 bottle of spray cleaner will get you the cleaner for free, as the coupon doubles up to $4, but it will not give you that extra 21 cents in overage. However, you’ll be taking items home for free, and who doesn’t love that? Now, don’t fret if you no stores double coupons in your area. Coupon doubling tends to be a regional phenomenon. Here in the Chicago area, none of our grocery stores double coupons, ever! The closest stores that do are 45 minutes from where I live. (And yes, I take “coupon field trips” to them on occasion.) But I do the bulk of my weekly shopping in a store that does not double coupons, and I still manage to cut my bill by half or better with coupons each week.

MORRISONVILLE — At 17 years old, country singer Keeghan Nolan is a rising star. Nolan, who lives in Fairfield, Vt. has been singing across the country, from Vermont to Florida to Tennessee, and most recently, right here in our backyard. Recently, Nolan performed at the Eagle Country 97.5 Battle of the Bands at the Lincoln Inn in Essex Junction, Vt. “It was a great experience and we had so much fun and all the band were great,” said Nolan. Winning first place, she not only received a paid contract at Lincoln Inn, but the chance to be the opening act for David Allan Coe at the Champlain Valley Motorcycle Rally held at the Clinton County Fairgrounds, Aug. 8. “It’s so exciting,” said Nolan before she went on stage. “I’m so happy to be here. I’ve got a great band behind me and we’re going to have a good time.” Singing has been a part of Nolan’s life from a young age, and she finally took to performing for a live audience at the age of 12. “I’ve always loved entertaining and just singing and being around music,” Nolan said. “When I was 3, I actually started singing but I had stage fright ... so I didn’t get on stage.” Five years ago, the opportunity to perform in a talent show arose and Nolan approached her music teacher for advice about singing on stage. She performed “Crazy” by Patsy Cline, which stunned her teacher. “She just sat there and cried,” Nolan

recalled. “She didn’t know that I even had an interest in singing.” Now, Nolan has a full schedule of performing and writing her own songs, four of which she performed at the motorcycle rally. “Some of my music is kind of rocky,

but I love all kinds of country — new, old.” For the future, Nolan just wants to keep doing what she’s doing. “Definitely just do what I love, and singing is what I love. I can’t imagine doing anything else.”

Mosaic mural unveiled after year-long effort By Sarah L. Cronk sarah@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — It’s been a year in the making. On Aug. 12, an estimated 200 people stood outside the Clinton County Government Center waiting to see what a black drape on the building’s brick wall would reveal. It took 1,000 students, the Clinton County Legislators, the Clinton County historian Anastasia Pratt, and the work of three dedicated women to produce a historic mosaic mural that is expected to last for hundreds of years. Retired teacher Sandra Morse and artists Sue Young and Bucky Seiden spent the last year working with seventh-graders in the nine schools in the county to create the 36-foot long mural which merged history and art in the classroom. “This project was done as part of the Quadricentennial celebration and it will stand as

a visible rendering of the history of Clinton County,” said Legislator James R. Langley Jr., R-Area 7, during his speech before the unveiling of the mural, “from the pre-colonial times through the late 19th century.” “I was fortunate to have this opportunity to visit Peru Central School to see for myself, not only the amount of time and energy dedicated to the mosaic, but also the amount of pride and enthusiasm these students have for the project,” Langley added. “It is truly remarkable.” Legislator Harry McManus, D-Area 1, also spoke before the unveiling of the project titled, “Clinton County History Through the Eyes of its Children,” stating the county is a part of Samuel de Champlain’s legacy. “In the 16th century, Samuel de Champlain’s dream for a new world and a new humanity was where people from different cultures could live together in peace and harmony,”

said McManus. “It was rooted in the Renaissance and inspired the Enlightenment period in our history. Clinton County is part of that legacy.” “Our Quadricentennial purpose was to celebrate its history and heritage, but we also wanted the project to be lasting and visible,” McManus added. “This mosaic had all the parameters, an addition that will welcome generations of Clinton County residents to their government center.” Following his speech, McManus called on eight students who were part of the project to come forth and help bring down the drape that covered the mural. Soon after it was revealed, the crowd merged forward to get a closer look at the mosaic, with many students searching to find their own tiles. “Everyone we talked to ... was just amazed at how it came out,” said Morse. “Because most people had not see any of it before it was unveiled, which was good.” “The students that were there, I think, were thrilled to see how their tiles were put in the whole design,” added Morse. Since the unveiling, Morse has been to the mural twice.

Run for Jon 2009

Don’t Look Back

Saturday, August 29th at 5 PM at Forrence Orchards, Mannix Road, Peru, NY

The Run for Jon is an annual race held in Peru, NY to raise money for the families of local children with serious medical problems and honor the memory of Jon Evans. In 2008 over 200 participants helped raise over $4,000. In 1990, 13 year-old Jon Evans was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. Soon after his diagnosis, two long time friends of the Evans family, Mark Elmore and Scott Woodward, organized the first Run for Jon to raise money to help pay for expenses. Just two weeks before the 2nd Run, Jon passed away. Every year since then, family and friends have held the Run for Jon to raise money for the families of local children with serious medical problems.

State employees raise nearly $200k for nonprofits PLATTSBURGH — The annual State Employees Federated Appeal conducted among state employees in Clinton, Essex, Franklin and Hamilton counties has concluded, raising $197,054.50. The appeal allows state employees to centrally donate to any of hundreds of local, state, national and international nonprofit agencies approved through a local regulating committee and the state Office of General Services in Albany. This year ’s appeal was considered “highly successful” at raising much needed funds for local services, as well as statewide, national and international charities. John C. Bernardi, executive director of the United Way of Clinton and Essex Counties Inc. and local SEFA coordinator, had high praise for Wayne Rabideau of the Altona Correctional Facility and a member of the PEF union, who acts as a loaned executive to the campaign.

“The local SEFA committee, comprised of representatives from state agencies, is an extraordinary team of people who make it all happen,” said Bernardi, “but it is the generosity and compassion of state employees throughout the region that is most impressive.” Four employees at the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora were recently given the Governors Award for outstanding service during the fall 2007 SEFA Campaign. Mary Vann, Cheryl Constanty, Maxine Brooks and David Jenkins worked tirelessly to coordinate the effort which raised $31,575 among Clinton Correctional Facility employees. “While we are proud of our team, it is clearly the large group of employees who deserve the credit,” said Vann, who serves as assistant deputy superintendent of programs.

Tangles celebrates anniversary

Researching history Muriel Normand, right, of Windham, NH and a member of the American-Canadian Genealogical Society in Manchester, NH, was researching the French history of Northern NY during the Caravane des Arts held at the PARC Oval Aug. 1. Donald Campagna of Morrisonville, left, a researcher of his family’s French heritage assisted Normand in her endeavor.

A year has passed since Jon Gerry, left, and Bob Whittington opened Tangles Hair Salon on Cogan Street in Plattsburgh. To celebrate, the salon offered various specials Aug. 13. “It’s been great. The community’s been very supportive of us,” Gerry stated of the first year. “Hopefully, we’ll keep getting busier and busier and expand more and more.”

Drop-off From page 1 or not she is spayed or up-to-date on her vaccinations. “I’d hate to do it again if she already had them,” she said. Abandoning an animal is a criminal offense punishable by law, however, Allen said there could be leniency in the case of Pinky’s owners. “If they would just come forward with an apology, and her information, and the typical drop off fee which is $45, I would forgive the charges,” said Allen. Pinky is just the latest case of animal drop-offs seen by the shelter, said Allen. About four weeks ago, a cat and nine kittens were also dropped off in a pasture owned by Allen not

far from the shelter. Animal abandonment is only one form of animal cruelty Allen has seen as both a shelter manager and animal control officer. Recently, she assisted state police with extracting five dogs from a home where the owners had traveled out-ofstate, leaving the animals in a “very unsanitary environment.” “And, the owners feel they did nothing wrong,” Allen said. While Allen is still looking for more information about the small dog, according to SPCA Board of Directors secretary Carol M. Solari-Ruscoe, Pinky has already managed to melt

the hearts of people who have visited the shelter or heard her story. “There are already a number of applications to adopt her,” said Solari-Ruscoe. “Pinky was obviously well-taken care of, so we can’t understand why her human companions just didn’t come into the shelter and surrender her instead of abandoning her in a horse pasture. “This ‘practice’ of just dumping pets is shocking and totally distressful for the animal,” she added. Anyone with information about Pinky may contact Elmore SPCA at 643-2451.

CLINTON TODAY - 15

A park in trouble I

n my last column, I summarized data from the recently released, Adirondack Park Regional Assessment Report. The document researched issues concerning local communities, residents and the economic state of the region. The report detailed a number of disturbing trends that should be of great concern to all Adirondack residents or any others who care about the park. The Adirondack Park has often been touted as a model for conservation and preservation where “man and nature coexist, side by side, in a sustainable fashion.” If population trends continue at the current rate, however, the model will soon be obsolete. It may remain a park, but there will be far fewer people and little or no sustainable economy. While there is no denying the fact that the Adirondacks remain a unique and beautiful place, the statistics reveal a rather seedy side that is hidden in the underbelly of the park. According to the report, the Adirondack population is aging at a pace roughly three times the national average. Smaller communities that form the core of the park are atrophying. Second home owners and seasonal residents now constitute a majority in these communities. Some Hamilton County communities have been described as “dark towns,” because there isn’t a single light shining from a window in the winter. Villages have been shuttered for the winter when the majority of residents are second home owners. “Inside the park” residents are on average five years older than residents of the state and communities inside the Blue Line have experienced an increase in median age of nearly nine years while the median age of out of the park residents has risen by only three years in the same timeframe. Of greatest concern is a notable decline in residents under the age of 10 and a growing exodus of residents between the ages of 20 and 35 (the child bearing years). Students in grades K-12 represent only 13.5 percent of the park’s population, as compared to 18 percent nationally. School enrollments in the park have decreased by 329 students annually throughout the current decade, which is equivalent to the loss of one average size Adirondack school district every 19 months. Schools are the epicenter of a community. When a community can no longer afford a school system, it is the societal equivalent of heart failure. A community without children will not survive. Schools define a place. They are the thread that holds the social fabric of a community together. Schools are the society’s center, a place for alumni to return and families to meet. Its the place were sports, theatre, concerts and other events happen. Dr. Russell Rider, a community physician based in Long Lake explained, “Our population is going to further contract. The peo-

ple having children now are the school teachers, they’re usually younger than most. But, what happens when there aren’t enough children to support a school?” When consolidation forces rival schools to form as a unit, it further dilutes a community’s spirit and independence. It is difficult to accept former opponents as teammates, especially when you’ve grown up listening to stories about the rivalries. Adirondackers, as a rule are a very independent lot, they are proud of their hometowns and want them to remain the same. Unfortunately, for many reasons, the reality of the situation points in the opposite direction. There is no denying the fact that the Adirondacks have become a state sponsored (one out of every three jobs in the park is with the government) and a state created playground. Many of the region’s most exclusive resorts cater primarily, as they often tout, to the “wealthiest one percent of the world.” While the region may be within a days drive of over 120 million visitors, it is also accessible in less than one hour ’s journey via private jet. The region may not have many contractors employed in the construction of affordable housing for local residents, but there is still a huge demand for workers to construct private hangars at local airports or build lavish lakefront camps. Historians labeled the period from the late 1880’s through the early 1900’s as the “Hey Days of the Adirondacks.” It was a time when towns grew, commerce prospered and grand hotels created a bubble of economic activity. While numerous Adirondack style “Great Camps” sprouted up across the park during the Hey Days, there have been more, modern day “Great Camps” built in the TriLakes region over the last decade, than there were historically existing in total across the entire park. The current lull in the building industry, due primarily to the economic condition of our country, has forced many local contractors to seek work elsewhere. Many local roofers, masons and carpenters are now working on the road outside the Blue Line. The same workers were previously busy all season building new camps. Ironically, in some instances, the state of the national economy was negatively influenced by the very bankers and investment brokers whose camps these guys built. Is it any wonder that our local communities are hemorrhaging their youth? What is left for kids to do? What do they have to look forward to? Are there any truly viable opportunities for sustainable, year-round employment? And what do we have to offer to the youth of the park in terms of positive opportunities for entertainment? Where are their hangouts if there isn’t a local diner, bowling alley, movie theatre, private gym or a place to swim?

It would be wonderful if all of the park’s resident youth enjoyed outdoor activities, but we know that isn’t the case. Some individuals are made for that life, many are not. With such a glaring lack of opportunities for positive recreational outlets, it’s no wonder that the allure of negative recreational outlets has become so enticing. Last summer, I ran into a group of teenagers along a remote stretch of the Schroon River, near the salmon weir in North Hudson. There were a few tents set up and a couple of pickup trucks. I asked the group what was the draw that brought them into the woods? Why were they visiting such a lonely, out of the way location? I was hoping their answer would be because they wanted to enjoy the deep woods, the rushing waters or experience the solitude of wilderness. I imagined they had come to fish, to swim and to sit around the campfire. Unfortunately, they told me the truth! “We come out here to get away from everyone, not because we like it here, there’s just no other place to hangout and have a

beer!” explained one teen. “Since we can’t legally drink until we’re 21, we’ve got to hide. And that’s why there’s always trash left behind. We don’t want to be caught with a bunch of empties in the truck on the way home.” There was no talk about the beauty of the pristine wilderness, no conversation about loons, brook trout or soaring mountain peaks. The conversation centered on the lack of entertainment. Sure, they could always hunt or fish or hike or bike, but we must remember that teens will be teens. “If we had a local hangout, it would be real cool,” explained a red-haired fellow. “But, we’d still have to come back here to drink our beer.” It’s a sad statement on the state of the park when the main draw of wilderness for our youth, is a place to sneak a beer. What does it say about our future?

There are individuals who watch for notices of foreclosure actions in order to unfairly profit from a homeowner's distress. You should be extremely careful about any such promises and any suggestions that you pay them a fee or sign over your deed. State law requires anyone offering such services for profit to enter into a contract which fully describes the services they will perform and fees they will charge, and which prohibits them from taking any money from you until they have completed all such promised services. § 1303 NOTICE NOTICE YOU ARE IN DANGER OF LOSING YOUR HOME If you do not respond to this summons and complaint by serving a copy of the answer on the attorney for the mortgage company who filed this foreclosure proceeding against you and filing the answer with the court, a default judgment may be entered and you can lose your home. Speak to an attorney or go to the court where your case is pending for further information on how to answer the summons and protect your property. Sending a payment to your mortgage company will not stop this foreclosure action. YOU MUST RESPOND BY SERVING A COPY OF THE ANSWER ON
