LPCA set for summer season

LAKE PLACID — The New York State Department of Transportation recently advised motorists that construction on a project to make slope repairs this month along Route 73 in the vicinity of Cascade Lakes between Lake Placid and Keene, Essex County, has been postponed. Work was to occur between Lower Cascade Lake to near Bobsled Run Road, and was to include one full weekend closure of Route 73. The work has been postponed after the discovery of a fiber-optic cable line in an unexpected location. The work has not yet been rescheduled. Since the work requires lane closures for 21 consecutive days, work is not expected to begin before Memorial Day to avoid impacting that holiday weekend. For up-to-date travel information, call 511 or visit

Craft beer night to benefi t Lit Vols LAKE PLACID — Tap into a night of craft beer on May 18, at the beautiful Heaven Hill Farm in Lake Placid. The fun begins at 3 p.m. with live music from Colleen Blanchard and a lot of great raffle items. We will also highlight some of our students’ masterpieces.

‘Adk. Kids’ to release book on carousel By Katherine Clark

SARANAC LAKE — The black fly on the Adirondack Carousel has gone missing in the newest book in the “Adirondack Kids” series. The who-done-it book, “The Carousel Case, the Bicycle Race & The Blackfly Bad Guy,” will be released at a joint one-year anniversary party of the Carousel’s opening on May 25. The father-son authors of the series, Justin and Gary VanRiper, will be signing copies of their 13th book at the Carousel, 2 Depot St., from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. In honor of the Carousel’s one-year anniversary, the Carousel will be open for free to riders from 10 a.m. to noon. The VanRipers — of Camden, just west of Boonville — said they knew about 10 years ago they wanted to write about the

Carousel. “We kept up with the progress of the project, and when we heard it would finally be opening we were ready to start writing,” Gary said. “Our mission and the Carousel’s mission are similar. We aim to fuse art, entertainment and education with our stories like they encourage education of the animals in the Adirondacks.” Gary said one of the first Carousel creatures that was shown to the public was Bug-Eye the black fly that was carved by Walt Reuss and Rich Kraft and painted by Meg Bernstein. “After 13 books about the Adirondacks, how could you not write a book about a black fly?” Gary said. “There is a sort of romance to a carousel in general with fun flashes of color, kids and family and especially a carousel with animals indigenous to the Adirondacks. It just sort of screamed ‘write a book about this to us.’”

In their previous books, the VanRipers have based many of their stories in the Fulton Chain of Lakes area (Old Forge, Inlet, etc.). The black fly also gave them a connection to Saranac Lake and to the Black Fly Challenge, an annual 40-mile mountain bike race between Indian Lake and Inlet.

Father-son project

Gary said the book series began more than 13 years ago as a way to engage Justin in reading and writing. “We started off not even considering it would be a book let alone a series. We just started writing about our adventures our camp on the Fulton Lakes,” Gary said. Later Gary was asked to read at a Parents as Reading Partners event at Justin’s school, and they both decided to read CONTINUED ON PAGE 2

Three named distinguished volunteers in Lake Placid LAKE PLACID — National Volunteer Week will be celebrated in North Elba May 12 Through May 18, and the Town of North Elba as well as The Village of Lake Placid have both proclaimed the week to be North Elba and Lake Placid Volunteer Week, when the Distinguished Volunteers of the Year will be honored. The Lake Placid North Elba National Volunteer Week committee is pleased to announce the selection of both Adult and Youth Distinguished Volunteers of the Year 2013. Judy Shea, of Lake Placid, is the 2013 adult volunteer honoree. The two youth volunteer honorees, Aaron Barney and Joan O’Leary, are both seniors at Lake Placid Central School. Shea’s very long list of volunteer contributions to the community goes back decades. Everyone in North Elba must certainly have experienced the tenacity of Judy Shea as she gets her job done, no matter the cause. By far, Judy’s largest concentration of volunteer time must unarguably go to the Lake Placid Volunteer Ambulance Service where she has served for more than 20 years on the PR, Fundraising and Finance Committees. She is an EMT with nine years at both basic and intermediate levels, is currently the Deputy Secretary, having led fundraising of over $270,000 for the building fund and has chaired the ice

Continued from page 1 their stories instead of someone else‘s book. “After I finished reading, we got a lot of compliments. People seemed to like the story and then someone came up and asked when would the book be coming out and it gave us the idea to write more,” Gary said. At their first signing, Gary said he and Justin were excited to sell more than 100 books and then within a few months their book sold over 2,000 copies. “I knew when we sold 2,000 books with no real

out benefit contest each Spring for all of its 22 years. Outside the Ambulance Service, Judy has given thousands of hours of time in support of many, many community efforts, including the North Elba Appearance Committee for over 10 years, the Lake Placid Tree Board for 10 years, the July 4th parade organizer for many years, the Lake Placid Center for the Arts, Lake Placid Sinfonietta, Garden Club of Lake Placid, St. Eustace Church, ORDA Advisory Group, and Village Cleanup. In addition, Judy has volunteered tirelessly at nearly every major and minor sporting event since the 1970’s, including the 1980 Olympic Winter Games. She was also a member of the Nordic Ski Patrol at Mt. Van Hoevenberg for 10 years, helped start up and organize TriLakes Lacrosse, and officiates for Lake Placid Summit Lacrosse girls division. If she didn’t already have enough, this year Judy worked diligently to start a new Lake Placid promotional event, Sweeten Up Lake Placid, to tie in with New York State Maple Producers Maple Weekends. Judy is always around promoting a cause. Lake Placid and North Elba are truly lucky to have her supporting these many diverse causes and events. Aaron Barney is a senior at Lake Placid High School. Aaron has logged well over 400

publicity, and a regional book at that, how unusual this story was and that people were really interested,” Gary said. “We said we’ll write the books as long as people want them, and every year it seems the enthusiasm grows.” The VanRipers published their first book in 2001, when Justin was only 11 years old. Now at age 23 and a college graduate, Justin and his dad still write one book every year. The main characters have gone on adventures around the 6-million-acre Adirondack Park to include adventures on the North Creek railroad for book four,

“The Great Train Robbery,” to Lake Champlain for book nine, “The Legend of the Lake Monster,” and to Ticonderoga in book 11 with “The Fall of Fort Ticonderoga.” The series has also included the illustrations of Gary’s wife, Carol VanRiper, since book four. “It’s really a family project now,” Gary said.

Connecting with words Gary said he hopes that the books he and his son write are for students at the fourth-grade reading level

hours a year of volunteer time to the Lake Placid Volunteer Ambulance Service for the past two years. He is currently pursuing a medical career through the Health Occupation program at BOCES. Aaron has achieved both his Emergency Medical Technician and Certified Nursing Assistant certifications, the latter requiring many hours of volunteer time at Uihlein Living Center. Aaron serves on the membership and communications committees at the Ambulance Service and also volunteers time at Lake Placid Volunteer Fire Department in addition to volunteering at Town sporting events. Aaron’s nomination stated his “dedication to LPVAS and LPVFD is most incredible for a teenager and his service hours are amazing”. Joan O’Leary is also a senior at Lake Placid High School and will attend the University of San Diego this fall as a drama major. Joan O’Leary is an extremely focused, creative young woman who has written, organized, and directed several musicals at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts for the benefit of the children in our area: “Long Live,” “The Rotten Apple,” “It Seams Like a Mystery,” and “Odd Jobs and a Little Food Poisoning.” She also has volunteered at two Key Club blood drives at Lake Placid Central School,

the annual Relay for Life, Lake Placid Village Clean up with Key Club and National Honor Society, and she ran the sound booth for the LPCS production of “Anne of Green Gables.” Joan currently has 807 hours of community service. Joan has volunteered and held leadership positions at Lake Placid High School. She is currently the editor of the Blue Bomber Times and Vice President of National Honor Society. Through her musicals, she has provided many of the children in our area with a positive experience in drama. Joan invites all interested children to participate. This opportunity gives children an outlet to learn how to express themselves on stage, and she enjoys “watching them shine” (Joan’s comments written on her Community Service Learning Verification Form). The committee invites all to help honor and celebrate the three Distinguished Volunteers of the Year on Saturday May 18. Join in at Peacock Park at 3:30 p.m. as a tree is planted in celebration of all local volunteers. The tree planting will be followed immediately with a reception from 4 to 6 p.m. at The Lake Placid Center for the Arts to celebrate the contributions of the 2013 Distinguished Volunteers of the Year. Everyone in the community is invited and welcome to attend both events.

and up. “The characters are essentially frozen in time. We try to keep their adventures believable for children at that age group while sometimes inserting words that will challenge their vocabulary,” Gary said. Through the books he said he has received feedback saying the local fictitious adventures have been “gateways for reluctant readers.” “I’ve read that there are two ages where children are vulnerable to giving up on reading,” Gary said. “That’s fourth grade and ninth grade. We played catch with words in ways that most fathers and sons played baseball. It’s really important for parents to make reading with their kids part of their routine.” Copies of their new book will be available at the Adirondack Carousel for the first time on May 25. Gary said he and Justin are already starting research on their next book based at an old theme park, the Land of Makebelieve, in Upper Jay.

‘Imagining’ theme for Lake Placid Sinfonietta summer season LAKE PLACID — “Imagining” is the theme of the Lake Placid Sinfonietta’s 2013 summer season which runs from July 3 to Aug. 11. “I’m thrilled to bring music that sparks imagination and simultaneously reflects the composer ’s initial concept” said Music Director Ron Spigelman. “You can expect tremendous performances this summer and be truly amazed at the talent we will have on stage. We’ve got Lake Placid debuts for some of the world’s top soloists and are thrilled to welcome back two showstoppers from last season!” The core of the summer ’s program is the six concert Symphony Series at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts which starts July 7 and continues on consecutive Sunday evenings through Aug. 11. Spigelman says, “ All performances are at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday evenings, with the exception of July 28, which has been moved to 8 p.m. to accommodate Ironman race-day traffic. Tickets to these performances are now available at the LPCA box office (523-2512). Tickets are available to each concert individually, but the Lake Placid Sinfonietta continues to offer Symphony Series tickets in a series package of all six or any four concerts of your choice. Purchasing tickets in a series offers the comfort of having the same seating at each performance, a guarantee of renewal seating the following year, eliminates frequent trips to the box office, and can be purchased at a discount if you are a current Lake Placid Sinfonietta member (donor.). Prices for tickets are the same as last sea-

son. A six-concert series can be purchased at a discount of $110 if you are a Lake Placid Sinfonietta member and the member-discounted price a four-concert package is only $77. The non-discounted ticket packages are $132/$88 respectively. All single tickets are priced at $22. As an incentive to enthusiasts who may be considering a subscription for the first time, the orchestra is pleased to announce that last summer ’s BOGO incentive will be continued in 2013 and a Buy-OneGet-One-Free offer will be extended to the first 46 new full series subscriptions. (New subscribers are those who have not have purchased a series within the last five years.) All seating is reserved, including as-available complementary seating for students 18 and under. For information and questions on ticket purchases, please call the Lake Placid Center for the Arts box office which can be reached at 523-2512. This summer ’s Symphony Series begins on July 7 when “Adirondack Health’s It’s D’Amore” brings the world of opera to the Lake Placid stage with arias and orchestral music from Donizetti’s “L’elisir d’amore,” Mozart’s “Magic Flute,” Lukas Foss’s “Jumping Frog of Calaveras County,” along with a taste of musical theater with Lloyd Webber ’s “All I Ask of You” from “Phantom of the Opera”. Singers will be bass-baritone George Cordes, a veteran of six seasons with New York City Opera, and multiple Live from Lincoln Center broadcasts, and soprano Natalie Polito who has been seen on stages across the country from the Santa Fe Opera to Ver-

mont’s Green Mountain Opera Festival. On July 14, “Debutante” will include Beethoven’s First Symphony, Britten’s Sinfonietta No.1, and pianist Di Wu making her Lake Placid debut with Chopin’s “Concerto No.1”. A 2009 Van Cliburn Competition finalist, Ms. Wu has been a featured soloist with orchestras around the world from Philadelphia to Shanghai and is described as playing with “fire and authority” by the Washington Post. “Basquing in Spanish Glory” on July 21 will showcase emerging classical guitar protégé Celil Refik Kaya in Rodrigo’s “Concierto di Aranjuez.” This young talent has just won the JoAnn Falletta International Guitar Concerto Competition and will appear in Lake Placid on his way to a doctoral program at the University of Texas in the Fall. On July 28 Music Director Ron Spigelman is exploring a program he’s calling “Deconstructed” in which each selection will use a different configuration of instruments. The evening will feature the return of exceptional pianist Navah Perlman performing Mozart’s “Concerto 21” as well as the “Piano Quartet in Eb,” and the orchestra featured in additional works by Ibert and Gounod. The Lake Placid Sinfonietta is pleased to have the sponsorship of the Victor Herbert Foundation for “American Dreams” on Aug. 4 which feature concertmaster Daniel Szasz in a virtuosic piece by African American composer William Grant Still, and flutist Anne Lindblom Harrow in the elegant “Poem for Flute and Orchestra” by Charles

Griffes. Mr. Szasz is also the Concertmaster of the Alabama Symphony and a frequent soloist with orchestras around the world, and Ms. Harrow is the former principal flute of the Florida West Coast Symphony and a professor at the Eastman School of Music. This concert of music by American composers will also feature selections by Aaron Copland and Elliot Carter. The final concert of the season on Aug. 11 will feature the first Lake Placid appearance by internationally known Cellist Amit Peled, who the New York Times described as having “a glowing tone and seductive timbre.” Mr. Peled has an extensive solo career, has released three CDs on the Centaur Records label, and has been featured multiple times on radio including NPR’s “Performance Today.” Each of these concerts will include a complementary post-concert meet the artist reception, and the opportunity to hear these musicians perform in the small, intimate theater that the Lake Placid Arts Center offers. Additional information about the programs and biographies of the artists and orchestra musicians can be found on the Lake Placid Sinfonietta website, LakePlacidSinfonietta. org.

Northern Lights will accept student in this program for the school year beginning in the Fall 2013. Northern Lights School’s experiential-based curriculum provides its preschoolers with a strong foundation for future academic and life success. Its parents recognize the value of this approach, especially for the innovation economy of the future. “The innovation economy of the future will require individuals who are creative thinkers and problem solvers,” Dr. Liz Leadbetter, who will have students in the program, said. “This is the skill set that will be valuable and will give my children a competitive advantage as they enter the workforce as adults. Northern Light’s program provides this solid foundation that will allow my kids to be productive citizens in the global and innovative economy of tomorrow.” “I am very excited that Northern Lights will participate in the District’s UPK program,” parent Tam Ly said. “Its experientialbased programming is what our community needs and will benefit its students tremendously as they later enter the district’s strong educational programs.”

Letters to the Editor

Flagging respect

To the Valley News: Now that Sheriff Cutting has opened the topic of respect for the American flag (Valley News May 4), I feel compelled to further the conversation with my own humble observations. In America, each of us has the privilege to express our patriotic fervor in the proud display of our flag. However, it is a privilege that comes with responsibilities. We may proudly fly our flag all day, but when evening descends, unless she is properly illuminated, Old Glory must be lowered and folded; and she must not be allowed to languish sadly in the rain or snow; and when she has served her time and become tattered and faded, she should be given proper and respectful burial or burning. These are some of the rules of the ritual of display of the American flag I learned years ago in Boy Scouts. As for those who choose to display the flag whipping in the wind from their speeding car or truck, I suggest when she separates from her standard that the patriot behind the wheel take time to stop and rescue her from the abuse and grime of the open road. To those citizens who find these responsibilities too daunting or cumbersome I suggest you channel your patriotism into something more abstract, such as the freedom to speak your mind, a privilege we have in America; a privilege also fraught with responsibilities. Robert Segall Upper Jay

Thanks for help

To the Valley News: The Board of Directors and Staff of the United Way of the Adirondack Region, Inc., SUNY Plattsburgh Project H.E.L.P and the Adirondack Coast Visitors Bureau would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to the 561 volunteers and all those who donated over 1250 food items on the Day of Caring. At one point we had more project then volunteers to complete them so a special thanks go out to those volunteers who step-up on the day so every project could be completed. This year there were over 75 projects completed through-out Clinton, Essex and Franklin Counties with volunteers logging over 1350 hours in one day. The communities’ willingness to get involved and to assist with these projects was instrumental to the overall success. It is the opportunity to work with community minded people like all the volunteers that makes our work at the United Way so enjoyable. Local people working to help local people…..That’s the United Way. Kathy Snow Director of Development United Way of the Adirondack Region, Inc. Plattsburgh

Can’t have both

To the Valley News: Steve Erman’s “It Needn’t be Rails vs Trails” says if the current Corridor Management Plan were to be “fully implemented”, it would “satisfy a very wide range of interests.” Not hardly. The Management Plan clearly states that there cannot be a trail parallel to the rail bed for much of its length. And from what I know of the adjacent terrain, there is no possibility for a parallel route both flat enough for bicycling and wide enough for frequent snowmobile traffic. Mr. Erman says that according to the Management Plan, the DEC and the DOT are responsible for looking for alternate routes - to include easements across private land where necessary. Nice way to pass the buck. From my knowledge of the land on either side of the corridor, I seriously doubt whether any such routes exist. If there indeed are such routes, to date neither the Adirondack North Country Association (ANCA) nor the Adirondack Scenic Railroad have, with one exception offered even the slightest hint of where these alternate routes might go. That one exception vaguely mentioned a new trail between Inlet and Raquette Lake - locations that are nowhere near the Corridor and cannot be connected to the Corridor. Mr. Erman also fails to mention that their funding application is for a whopping $15.2 million. If approved, this will bring the total NYS funding for this project to over $50 million. The $15 million will only produce a 30-35 mph railroad that will take six hours to travel from Utica to Lake Placid. If that same train stops to drop off and pick up recreationists at remote locations, the trip will be a lot longer. ANCA has promoted their funding application to local elected boards as “rail with trail”; but since the “trail” part does not appear to be possible, the overall premise of their application has little or no credibility. That leaves us with just the “rail” service that few would use - it being even slower than the 19th Century-speed passenger service abandoned over 50 years ago. Keeping the rails in place, however, precludes the creation of a recreational trail that will be unlike any other trail in the Adirondacks. Based on the experience with other rail trails, this unique recreational opportunity will actually help the economy by attracting many new visitors to the area. Tony Goodwin Keene


To the Valley News: Around here these days it seems there are a couple of different groups heading in different directions on the same railroad track. Think about that for a second! What does that mean? Well if it happened to be two different actual trains then I think it would be easy enough to understand each scenario. One very specific outcome if they are traveling away from each other. If traveling towards each other, total catastrophe. The question that enters my mind is this. With two groups or at least two opposing objectives wanting to travel the same corridor, could a reverse scenario occur? If railroad advocates and alternative use advocates are traveling (striving) to move completely apart or away from each other, could catastrophe be the result? Personally I believe it is becoming just that, a catastrophe! This issue, debate and the prospects, proposals, ideas and re-evaluations have now been taking place for over 35 years! I have heard some very good points brought up on each sides of this issue. I make no claims that I understand many of the complexities involved with this issue. But I am concerned that the debate might

become so entrenched, on the right and on the left, that viable options do not get considered and the corridor wastes away from old age and lack of up keep. Oh, and let’s not consider the amount of tax dollars already spent. Unlike real trains, these groups or stanch ideals traveling apart could become catastrophic and at a minimum have already been very detrimental. Why, because at odds and in opposition they are stalemating progress of what can be very good, viable economic ventures for the local communities, the Adirondack region and the State of New York. Is all or nothing the right approach? I have heard some say remove the rails so snowmobilers can have better use in the winter time. I have heard the proposal for rail freight and rail passenger service to be restored along the entire corridor. I have heard the continuing push for scenic rail service. I believe it is time to nail something down! I applaud and encourage ideas and activism on any side of the fence. These days I am pretty sure public activism is about the only way to make most government types get anything done. But remember if the public is too evenly divided the politicians will sit safely on the fence. Scott Grady Lake Placid

Again with 2nd Amendment

To the Valley News: In her letter to the editor on May 4, Monique Weston begins by quoting the Second Amendment to the US Constitution. She then proceeds to insist that the word “regulated” somehow has nothing to do with the training of the militia, but instead she invokes the power of the courts and argues that it has to do with government management of the militia. Regardless of what the courts may say, and even though they may have the authority to say so, this cannot be the correct interpretation, else the second half of the amendment, “the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed” would not be the logical conclusion. Instead, the logical conclusion would be something like “the right of the government to keep an armed force for deployment in times of emergency, shall not be infringed.” No, the word “regulated” cannot refer to government management of the militia,

and the word “militia” cannot refer to today’s State Militia simply on the basis that it is the same word, or that some prior ruling has been cited. If the Second Amendment is to be considered as a whole, the militia is meant to be comprised of the people and be managed by the people, without government interference. Although the courts have the authority to interpret the law, they are not by virtue of their position always right. They as individuals are swayed by their personal convictions and are as likely to err as any of the rest of us. After further consideration, however, I will agree with Ms. Weston that the word “trained” is not a proper substitute for the word “regulated.” Training is only part of being “well regulated.” An individual may be well trained in the use of his firearm, and many well-trained individuals may come together as militia with intent to maintain or regain the security of their free state. But they need to be organized. They need to be drilled and disciplined. They need to learn how to function as a cohesive unit. In short they need effective leadership. It is both training and leadership that enables the militia to be characterized as “well regulated”. The Second Amendment is only one of ten that are known as the Bill of Rights. Each of these amendments speaks to the empowerment and protection of the people from the government, and to the limitation of the government’s power and authority over the people. It is ludicrous to insist that the Second Amendment is somehow different, that it is intended to subject the people to additional government “regulation.” The Second Amendment is only “maddeningly ambiguous” to those who refuse to accept the possibility that it means exactly what it says, as it is written in plain English. Nevertheless, we are bound to abide by the courts’ decisions, that is, until they lose sight of the meaning of “shall not be infringed.” The people may one day decide when this has happened. This is not a threat. It is a sad prediction, based on the historical events that led to the creation of this nation. I hope I am wrong but I see an ember smoldering. The courts would be wise not to fan it into flame. Don Mauer Piercefield

Farmers markets: shop while Truth or consequences supporting the community B


t’s that time of year again. Time to enjoy life without layers, time to enjoy the extended days and time to enjoy the bounty of our local farmers’ harvests. And in the North Country, it’s easy to do all three. Last Saturday, many farmers markets throughout the region, including the Plattsburgh Farmers and Crafters Market, opened for the season. They will continue to spring up like wildflowers, and the ones that didn’t open last week will be opening soon enough, with the final stragglers ready for business by the end of June. It’s true that many fruits and vegetables won’t be ready until later in the season, but a visit to a farmers market this time of year will reveal more than fresh produce. Beneath the bustling pavilion at the Plattsburgh farmers market, the vendors proudly stand by their wares, products like candles, jewelry, soaps, art, honey, wine, Adirondack chairs and wildflower teas. Their products might not have been harvested in the same way an apple is plucked from a tree, but they were all crafted locally, by people many consider to be family, friends or neighbors. This time of year there is a sparse selection of straight-from-the-ground edibles available, too, such as some of the hardier leafy greens and a few plants harvested from our local forests, like wild leeks and wild ginger. As summer continues, the variety of veggies will only increase as crops reach their peak, and the best part is, their yield is not only delicious—it’s affordable. We have written about the benefits of buying local before, and that sentiment is still as important now as it was in the past. But farmers markets aren’t entirely self-serving. Sure, the farmers and crafters benefit from an increase in sales, and why shouldn’t they? They are providing us with healthy food grown in a sustainable manner at a low cost, but the function of these markets also serves the consumer, and the community. Take a trip to downtown Plattsburgh this Saturday and see for yourself. There is a feeling of intimacy there, a connection as the buyer speaks to the producer first hand and learns about how the product came to be. The smooth

surface of that black walnut bowl wasn’t mass produced in a factory somewhere overseas, it was made by hand from a tree that was destined for a wood chipper. The grapes used to make that wine are cold-hardy, much like the citizens of our region. There is a woman living in the town of Keene who makes soaps, bath salts and bug balms, and she will tell you all about how her concoctions can relieve stress, tension, and insect bites. Through those interactions, farmers markets begin to take on a greater purpose and become a community gathering space where relationships, and trust, are formed between the consumer and the producer. Try speaking to one of the many farmers present and ask him or her questions. Some will offer advice on gardening, and others can tell you about their Community Supported Agriculture program, where consumers can purchase a share of the farm and receive a bounty of goods each week. In many cases, it’s like purchasing your vegetables for the year all at once. Some CSA’s offer meat, maple syrup, honey, milk and cheeses, too. And for those who need assistance, most local farmers markets accept food stamps and WIC coupons. But the benefits of farmers markets don’t end at the pavilion. Since visitors to the Plattsburgh Farmers and Crafters Market are already downtown, many of them will grab a bite to eat or explore some of Plattsburgh’s many fine businesses while they are there. The draw of the market also draws people to those places, and in the process it neatly ties together many of the things most Plattsburgh residents desire— a thriving downtown built upon a high quality of life, high quality local products, and a strong sense of community. The Plattsburgh Farmers and Crafters Market is held every Saturday, from 9 a.m.–2 p.m., at the Farmers Market Pavilion, located by Bridge, Durkee and Broad streets downtown.

The author with an Ausable River brown trout.

Fly fi shing prairie guys


hey say the early bird gets the worm. It should read: “The early riser gets the bird,” and hopefully that bird’s a turkey, but for me, I think the “bird” is all I’m getting, so to speak! Gobblers have not been in my play book so far this year. So far! Not one to get into a state of despair, I have altered hunting strategies and tactics. I temporarily hung up the old Remington Model 11, 12-gauge shotgun By Rich Redman I borrowed, and armed myself with an Orvis Access 6 weight fly rod. Yes, Orvis is expensive, but I have connections in all the right places, at least the right places that I think count as the right places. Thank you G.J.! Orvis is a local company headquartered in Manchester Vt, so if I have a problem, I can go right to the source, and don’t have to deal with catalogs and sending stuff back. I have no patience for all that. Remington is also a local company for now. The governor’s so-called Safe Act may drive them out of New York. That would be a loss of more than 1,000 well-paying jobs, not so safe for the workers, and a stab in the back to the local Mohawk Valley communities. Texas is very interested in having them relocate to their area. Anyway, I’ll go back to gobblers when the rain quits. At least that’s my thinking at the moment. I like to hunt after a rain, when the birds are out foraging. With the warm weather and lack of spring rains, the stream temperatures are getting near perfect; the mid to upper 50’s or low 60’s. The fish are getting active and will soon be rising to mayfly, caddis and stonefly hatches. The action is starting on the Ausable River near Wilmington now. Yes, the fish are taking some flies on the Ausable River right now. Jerry Bottcher of the Hungry Trout Inn told me: “When the apple tree out front blooms, it’s time for the dry flies.” His apple tree is just starting to bloom, along with the shadbush and hobblebush! So I guess we have at least three vegetative indicators of when dry fly fishing starts! The Hendrickson (Ephemerella) hatch should be starting later this week. Not being one to wait, I tried my luck at a nice pool. Initially I started with a red bodied bead head nymph and started dredging the pool. I took a 9-inch brook trout (Salvelinus fontinalis) on that. After an hour or so, around 3 p.m., and after trying a few flies that I thought would bring a strike, I changed tactics. No fish were rising and taking dries, but I like to throw a curve ball out once in a while and see what happens. The way I figure it, if a steak sandwich with gravy and mashed potatoes floats by, why bother with bologna. The fish took the dry fly as it was swept downstream and started to swing. By that time the dry was getting wet, so the fish may have thought it was a mayfly starting to emerge from its nymphal shuck. I caught the fish, a beautiful 14-inch brown trout (Salmo trutta). The trout took one of my hand-tied dry flies; my own creation. I carefully released it after we both posed for a photo op of course. While I was fishing I met three guys from Calgary Canada who were staying in Lake Placid for a veterinary medicine conference. They rented some waders and tackle from Tom Conway at the Two Fly Shop in Wilmington. They had an assortment of flies and were out whipping the water. One fellow never fly fished before so I worked with him, gave him a couple of my special home grown flies and let him whip away. He was the one who took the photo of me with the fish. Fly fishing folks swap or share flies with other fly guys. Worm guys don’t. Being from the flat prairie country of Canada, they were impressed with the beauty of the Adirondacks. I was up in the Canadian prairies so I know what the terrain is like. Canadian wheat and flat paprika colored plains. There are miles and miles of flat, to gently rolling wheat fields and prairie. Prairie is French for grassland. Those fly fishing prairie guys hope to return to our mountains someday. Many people don’t realize the economic importance hunting and fishing brings to our area. This is a marvelous area and we need to promote more fishing and hunting opportunities. Habitat management, whether it involves the forest, fields or streams is important, and the only place we can do that is on private land. State forest lands within the Adirondack Park are off limits for management, based on the State Constitution. This is very controversial even among the foresters and wildlife biologists who work for the state of New York. There should be a land classification of “Managed Forest” so wildlife management can be done to help with early successional diversity on state lands. Its Mother’s Day week, so take your Mother fishing, buy her a steak sandwich with mashed potatoes and lots of gravy and enjoy life! Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms out there.



The still waters of an Adirondack pond can be transformed into frothing waves and pounding surf within a moment’s notice. Extremes of weather often complement the extreme beauty of this land.

A year’s worth of weather, in a week


t certainly has been an interesting week to be in the woods. I spent a few days fishing, on both the ponds and the rivers and the remainder of my time was devoted to arranging details for an LL Bean photo shoot. The Bean photo shoot crew encountered an interesting mix of Adirondack weather patterns. There was brilliant sunshine, calm waters and 75 degree temperatures on one day, and the next day delivered raging winds, horizontal snow and whitecaps that were so heavy the crew was almost washed off the docks. The group’s photographer, who hails from California, claimed he had suffered through a four season’s worth of extreme weather in less than a week’s time. And then there were the black flies! “Nobody warned us about the black flies,” he complained. “We wore these silly nets which only served to trap them closer to your scalp. One bite and you’d bleed forever, and it would itch like crazy.” “And then there was the weather!” he sighed. “We had a year’s worth of extremes in just seven days, with sun and heat one day followed by horizontal rain and 20 degrees the next.” “I’ve never seen anything like it. It went from summer to winter in less than 24 hours! I was watching this storm come across the lake, and it looked like rain. But then I saw it was snow, and then, the whole place went white instantly. I was not happy.” “Welcome to the Adirondacks,” I offered, “a land of extremes.” Despite a wealth of welts, plenty of frozen fingers and a

mess of wind tossed hair, the crew actually managed to make it through the entire week, all alive and frostbite free, and they got enough good shots to produce their entire fall catalog. Even though there were propane heaters blowing hot air on the set the whole time, hair stylists were reduced to using blow dryers to keep their fingers nimble. After putting up with models, props, locations, stylists and more than a few unhappy hair dressers, I couldn’t wait to get back on the water for a few days of fishing. Even though I had to deal with hordes of savage black flies, raging winds, driving snow, thick fog, and gale force winds that pelted us with sleet and hail, it was great to be on the water again. Over the weekend, I set off with an old guest on Lake Placid in a search for lake trout, and we managed to find a few cooperative specimens. However, with water temperatures hovering around 58 degrees, the lakers were rather disagreeable, and we only managed to pull one in the boat, before gently releasing it. However, our luck soon changed after we retreated to a small, stream where the brookies were anxious to feed. They attacked just about anything we tossed their way, and we tossed a lot of flies. The weekend of angling adventures was finally complete after we spent a few hours flycasting cork poppers to big bass that were cruising the shallow shorelines of a small, private lake. The largemouth proved to be voracious, healthy and just itching for a fight. I think they would’ve hit an old boot, if we could have figured a way to tie it one on! On the return trip back to the lodge, we stumbled upon a small tributary stream that was chuck full of large pods of marsh marigolds. The striking yellow flowers, with green leaves stood in stark contrast with the black waters of the tiny stream. Nearby, we found fiddlehead ferns that were as yet unfurled, and specimens of both painted and purple trilliums. Wildflowers, wild weather and wild fish, what more can be a finer find for on a spring day in the Park? Joe Hackett is a guide and sportsman residing in Ray Brook. Contact him at

Amateur radio operators prepare for fi eld day SARANAC LAKE — Field Day 2013 is a chance to get out for fun radio-activities on June 22-23, with many events throughout the state of New York. Field Day by the American Radio Relay League (ARRL). who facilitates field organization, affiliated clubs and EmCom-groups has become synonymous with Public Service and Emergency Communications. Amateur Radio Operators more commonly known as “Ham Operators” will setup to operate and communicate with fellow “Hams” all around America and Canada. A field operation means just that, under less than desirable conditions and environments, they will often put up make shift shelter, antennas and radio stations for communication on emergency power. They will use generators and battery power to send exchanges/messages in many modes, not done by any other entity or organization. “I have witnessed some of the most ingenious electronics and forms of communications by these Amateurs which are often some the most dedicated professional communicators and communication organizers in an Emergency,” said Thomas Dick, NNY ARRL Section Manager. “If you don’t believe me just ask the Emergency Coordinators during a Public Service event where amateur radio volunteers were there helping, which they do for so many events all across America when communication organization is needed under less than sustainable circumstances by any other means. When the power goes down, When cell phones get jammed up, When the internet crashes or the computers won’t work, ham radio gets through often enough our NTS Traffic system just works.” Dick said that field days will give those interested in radios a look at what can be done with them. “You will be amazed at what you see and hear and may want to ask how you can become a Licensed Amateur,” he said. “What a wonderful privilege it is to be an US. Amateur Radio Operator, truly an expression of our Freedom. Yes, you can enrich your family by understanding communications and enable youngsters to learn how radio-waves/frequencies affects most technologies we use today and help our communities in times of need.” You can get a list of the nearest Field Day Club Sites by going to A map of local clubs can be found at

Registration open for Warrior run in Tupper Lake in August

TUPPER LAKE — Registration is now open for the 2nd Annual Tupperpalooza Warrior Run. Scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 3, at Big Tupper Ski Area, The Tupperpalooza Warrior Run is a challenging 3.5 mile race made up of a mix of intense obstacles, treacherous mountain terrain and lots of mud. Participants can compete individually or as a team of four. With nearly 200 athletes participating in the very successful 2012 inaugural run, the 2013 Tupperpalooza Warrior Run is guaranteed not to disappoint. The race committee is already at work planning a longer and tougher course with new obstacles and most definitely more mud. There will also

be a children’s course for children 13 and under. “Obstacle races are really growing in popularity” said Tupper Lake Events Coordinator, Michelle Clement. “It’s exciting to be able to grow a race that is not only a great experience for the athletes, but is also an event that draws a strong visitor base to the Tupper Lake community.” Also new this year, the race will feature ChronoTrack timing provided by ChronoTrack provides timing solutions for many of the largest races in the country. All Tupperpalooza Warrior Run participants will receive timing chips at registration. This will not only provide extremely accurate race results, but will also allow for less congestion on

the race course as athletes start in race waves. “We can now keep track of just how tough our warriors really are,” says Clement. The Warrior Run is presented by the Tupper Lake Chamber of Commerce and is the official kick-off of “Tupperpalooza,” a week long festival in TupperLake celebrating the spirit of the Adirondack summer.

dance sets by Michael Praetorius and Tielman Susato. The Four Winds will also join together with NAVE on several numbers at key points in the program. A climactic moment will be Jacob Handl’s “Alleluia” for double choir, where both ensembles perform antiphonally. “Madrigals, Motets, and Merriment” offers a choice sampling of short vocal and instrumental works that express the full range of human emotions.
