HADLEY Ñ The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation held a swift water training for approximately 20 forest rangers, who make up about half of Region 5Õ s force, June 12 on the Sacandaga River in Hadley. Ò It was for rangers to hone their skills, if you will, for rescuing individuals who might fall out of rafts or even drowning victims from the shore,Ó Region 5 Forest Ranger Captain John Streiff said. Ò WeÕ ve had some new transfers that have come in from other parts of the state who might not be as familiar with swift water rescue here in the Adirondacks. But with the thousands of miles and hundreds of ponds and lakes that we have in the Adirondacks, itÕ s very important for forest rangers to keep up their skills in swift CONTINUED ON PAGE 8

SARANAC LAKE Ñ The North Country Community College Athletic Department announced June 12 that it will add womenÕ s lacrosse and womenÕ s volleyball programs to its sports offerings beginning the fall 2015 semester. The teams will be participating as NJCAA Division III programs, which will allow North Country to compete against other Region III programs. They will compete in the Mountain Valley Conference and the Region III Athletics portion of the NJCAA. Ò Our department is very excited to offer these new programs,Ó Saints Athletic Director Chad LaDue said. Ò I believe they will enhance our studentsÕ experience while increasing our number of student athletes.Ó NCCC President Steve Tyrell said he was excited to watch these new programs take off. Ò North Country Community College is committed to providing strong athletic programs not only for the camaraderie, leadership values and core school pride it builds for the players, students, faculty and staff of North Country, but for our local communities as well,Ó Tyrell said. LaDue said the new offerings would potentially boost NCCCÕ s enrollment. “We’re definitely looking to increase our student body and one of the ways is through athletics,Ó LaDue said. Ò I took a look at what sports would fit our region and our institution and decided that having one in the fall and one in the spring, womenÕ s lacrosse and CONTINUED ON PAGE 8

Schoch inducted into Outdoorsmen Hall of Fame By Jon Hochschartner

RAY BROOK Ñ Dr. Nina Schoch was recently inducted into the New York State Outdoorsmen Hall of Fame. The New York State Outdoorsmen Hall of Fame is an organization dedicated to honoring the sportsmen and women who have made significant contributions to conservation or preserving the heritage of outdoor sports. Dr. Schoch was recognized for her extensive research and outreach efforts focusing on the Adirondack Common Loon population. Since 1999, Dr. Schoch has coordinated many scientific studies and conservation programs to increase our understanding of, as well as public awareness about, factors threatening Adirondack loons and their habitats. Ò I am extremely honored to receive this recognition by the New York State Outdoorsmen Hall of Fame,Ó Dr. Schoch said. Ò It is quite a thrill to know the many years we have devoted to loon conservation are appreciated by the residents and sportsmen of New York. I am also very grateful to my many collaborators and supporters who have enabled us to conduct our loon conservation efforts.Ó Dr. Schoch and her field staff are currently monitoring more than 200 color-banded loons throughout the Adirondack Park to learn about the impact of mercury pollution on the reproductive success of Adirondack loons. Other research projects include using cameras to determine factors that affect loon nesting success and geolocators to learn about the migration patterns of Adirondack loons. John Sheehan of the Adirondack Council was enthusiastic about Dr. SchochÕ s induction. Ò ThatÕ s great news and very well deserved,Ó Sheehan said. Ò Nina has been a pioneer in monitoring and improving the health of loons throughout the park. She has done most of the basic research into loon health, mercury contamination and migratory patterns.Ó Sheehan said Dr. Schoch has not only improved understanding of what hurts loons, but has also made good recommendations to the state about how to protect them. Ò Loons are very important to the park as part of the environment and a healthy ecosystem,Ó Sheehan said. Ò But theyÕ re also important to tourism. People love loons. They come here to see them. And theyÕ re really the symbol of the Adirondack wilderness.Ó Dr. Schoch has also been instrumental in developing many educational and outreach programs, including such school curricula as Science on the Fly!, and the Loon Center’s fishing line recycling program to address the increasing threat of fishing line entanglement experienced by Adirondack loons. Dr. Schoch will again be heading the Adirondack Loon Celebration this coming

Dr. Nina Schoch was recently inducted into the New York State Outdoorsmen Hall of Fame. Outdoor writer Joe Hackett presented her with the plaque on a Ray Brook Pond. Columbus Day weekend, which will be a day of unique loonrelated events for the whole family to enjoy! The mission of Biodiversity Research Institute is to assess emerging threats to wildlife and ecosystems through collaborative research, and to use scientific findings to advance environmental awareness and inform decision makers. BRIÕ s Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation is dedicated to improving the overall health of the environment, especially air and water quality, through collaborative research and outreach focusing on the natural history of the common loon and conservation issues affecting loon populations and their aquatic habitats. To learn more about Dr. Schoch and loon conservation in the Adirondacks, contact BRIÕ s Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation at or (888) 749-5666 x 145, visit and, or like BRIÔ s Adirondack Center for Loon Conservation on Facebook at www. to keep updated about BRIÕ s loon research and outreach efforts in the Adirondack Park and elsewhere in North America.

Opinion Valley News Editorial


Communication is the key he San Antonio Spurs just showed every basketball fan in America that when a team comes together, they can do something

special. The Spurs did not have the marquee name player (that honor went to the Miami Heat and LeBron James, arguably the greatest player of this generation) or an inflated payroll. They had a mixture of players from different backgrounds who came together to make each other better. On the court, the team worked together. The only way this could have been accomplished is through practice, patience and communication. On a playing field or court, communication can come in verbal forms, such as calling a play or helping teammates to know their responsibilities, or in physical forms like raising an eyebrow to tell a teammate to cut to the basket or pointing to where the pass will be delivered. No matter what, communication is vital to a successful team. In the North Country, some teams and schools are facing the stress of declining enrollments equaling a lack in the number of youth needed to play middle and high school sports, especially among the schools in Section VII/Class D, which holds the lowest enrollment numbers in the region. Several schools have already consolidated athletic programs, creating the Minerva/Newcomb Mountaineers and Indian Lake/Long Lake Orange. Others have combined for individual sports, best exemplified by the Emus track and field team, a combination of Elizabethtown-Lewis, Keene, Moriah and Westport. Of late, we have reported that ELCS and Westport have started to talk about more merged sports programs. This spring, the two schools combined their modified (typically students in grades 7-9) baseball and softball programs, with one team playing games in Elizabethtown and the other in Westport. Now, the schools are looking to do the same with the modified girls and varsity boys (typically grades 10-12) soccer programs. Willsboro has just completed its fourth season of not fielding a varsity baseball team. Furthermore it was not even able to field a modified or junior varsity program (which can take students from all eligible grades depending on a physical for younger athletes), signifying what may be the unfortunate end to an entire spring sports program where a once proud ball tradition stood. This also would not be Westport’s first time down the merged team road for a sport other than track, as they combined with Keene for the two-year boys spring sports era known as Ò Beagle-ball.Ó For these schools or any others looking at the need to merge sports or, letÕ s be honest, even academic reasons, communication is going to be the key. In Schroon Lake, Athletic Director Lee Silvernail

invited the community to a public forum on the future of Wildcat athletics which took place June 17. Schroon Lake has already been affected. This spring, the school was without a modified baseball program, which meant students in seventh grade who are barred from advancing to the varsity level by the state had no chance to play organized baseball Ñ too young for varsity and too old for little league. Silvernail is giving the community the chance to shape the future of how they want their sports programs to be handled, whether it be through combined gender teams, merged teams, or only fielding a varsity or modified squad, depending on numbers. We commend Silvernail and Schroon Lake for taking this initiative. This is the way we hope all school districts approaching this topic would communicate with their parents and students as they head down a very sensitive road, no matter what the outcome of the public hearing and any further planning. If you are a school district or districts looking to merge teams and you are not having similar forums and hearings, we would strongly suggest you do so. For many of our small town communities, high school sports is something to rally behind. It designates us as Eagles, or Lions, or Eagles, or Blue Bombers, or Eagles, or Warriors, or Eagles (yes, we have noticed thereÕ s four teams locally with the same nickname). All over the area, signs have popped up at the edge of town indicating their school team won the Section VII title or made it to a state championship game. People hold on to these memories made through sports and may see the combining of two teams as cheapening those sacred reflections. They may also feel bringing two schools together will lessen their childÕ s chance of participating in high school sports since it has been ages since anyone in a Class D school has heard the word Ò cut,Ó without looking at the possibility that a merge could actually lead to an increased opportunity through the addition of a junior varsity program, giving an option of three viable teams instead of two which are somewhere between fledgling and nonexistent. This is a situation where no matter what a school or schools decide to do, someone is going to be upset that their school nickname is going away or that their kid canÕ t play school sports because there was not enough interest to field a team and no one wanted to merge. In the world of high school sports, this may very well be a no-win situation. But, one thing can lessen the impact of any and all decisions made and bring communities closer together as they face these new North Country realities, and that is communication. ÑD

Question of the Week: Do you believe there is a drug problem in the North Country?


Yes, I think there is a drug problem in Clinton County. However, I think our law enforcement is excellent at responding to the situation. However, the most alarming Ò product of choiceÓ today is meth.



Leigh Carter-Simonette



IÕ m worried about heroin because itÕ s definitely a problem in Vermont, and itÕ s probably been spilling over. Heroin is the one IÕ d be nervous about. ItÕ s so cheap.



Bill Localio JAY


Is there a drug problem? Of course there is. ItÕ s been a big, potent problem for many years. The drugs have changed Ñ theyÕ re more available then they were 40 years ago.




Yes, I think there is. I hear a lot about it. ItÕ s scary I talk to my daughter about it. My son travels back and forth from the city to Ticonderoga and it worries me.

andy Urban





Yes! There have been two overdoses right here in town. I was a police officer in the 50’s in CT. and we didnÕ t have those problems. There were no drugs.

Kite Fest a hit

To the Editor: East Branch Friends of the Arts would like to thank all the wonderful friends, neighbors and visitors who came out on Fathers Day to fly kites and have fun in nature’s stadium at Marcy Field. This yearÕ s theme was Ò Harmony.Ó Special thanks go to the talented vocalists who entertained us throughout the day led by our own Emcee Bob Andrews. A mixed chorale sang four sets of rounds and campfire songs and a men’s ensemble did a beautiful rendition of Balm in Gilead that can be heard on EBFAÕ s Facebook page. We also want to thank the students from Keene Central School who sold kites at a brisk pace until they ran out and Rob Hastings and his Rivermede Farm crew for their hard work running a very busy food and beverage concession all day long. Not to mention Town Supervisor Bill Ferebee and his team who have helped us plan this event from the very start and the New York Kite Enthusiasts (NYKE) members who come each year with their spectacular kites, banners, bols, bubble machine and, for the first time this year, air cannon that launched candy into the air to the great delight of kids of all ages! Kite Fest 2014 was made possible, in part, by the Essex County Arts Council CAP Grant supported by the Essex County Board of Supervisors. Leslie Shipps, Keene Valley

Free helmets given away

To the Editor: Safe Kids Adirondack held its 4th annual FittinÕ Ur Noggin (F.U.N.) Ride on Friday, May 30. In one day, cyclists and volunteers traveled to five schools in Clinton County and fitted 488 children with a free bicycle helmet. In addition, SUNY Plattsburgh Campus Police Officer Robert Light visited each of the five schools to teach children how to ride their bicycle safely. It was a fast-paced yet rewarding day to give helmets to kids, knowing that many had none. There were many partners and volunteers that made this event a success this year and have helped to keep our children safe. Participating schools were Northern Adirondack Elementary, Mooers Elementary, Rouses Point Elementary, Chazy Central and Cumberland Head Elementary. We are so grateful to our sponsors: the David Reuter Free Helmet Fund, Wal-Mart, Pfizer Rouses Point, Plattsburgh Lions Club, Mountain View Pediatrics, Casella Waste Systems, Plattsburgh Rotary Club, Woodmen of the World Chapter 462, Safe Kids Worldwide, LaBarge Agency, Mr. & Mrs. Robert Light, Champlain/Rouses Point Rotary Club, Rouses Point Parent Support Group and Woodmen of the World Chapter 1016. Volunteer helmet fitters and riders for the day kept everything moving quickly and on schedule. They included Bob Light, Mitch Carriere, Michelle Senecal, Molly Flynn, Karen Prevo, Chris Carpenter, Jonathan Martin, Rich Kozak, John Nichols, Elaine Reynolds and Anthony Pilcher. We would also like to extend a thank you to the school parents and volunteers who helped fit helmets. We are so proud to be able to offer this event and owe a huge thank you to everyone who made it possible. Through outreach and education, we are saving lives and keeping kids safe. Kerry Haley and Martha Passino Co-Coordinators Safe Kids Adirondack

Smoke-and-mirrors To the Editor: Mr. FenimoreÕ s obsessive attacks on Margaret Bartley are in part a smoke-and-mirrors tactic to deflect attention from his and his brother-in-lawÕ s less-than-stellar records. Where is an honest-to-goodness fact finder when you really need one? An entity that is not vindictive and does not have an ax to grind? Answer: the NYS Comptroller’s Office. Go to localgov/ to find the truth and, unfortunately, the scathing report that revealed the shenanigans that went on during Mr. FenimoreÔ s tenure on the Elizabethtown Town Board. And where was this tenacious watchdog then? Was he simply asleep at the switch, or did he encourage and condone the voodoo accounting practices that this report exposed? For instance, why were there discrepancies between the bank statement and general ledger balances ranging from $260 to $140,260? ThatÕ s right, $140,260! Why were four of seven expenditure accounts that the Comptroller reviewed over-expended? Why did capital project balances vary significantly between accounting records, bank balances and the TownÕ s annual report? Financial reports provided to the Board by Mr. FenimoreÕ s brother-in-law did not accurately reflect actual financial activity which limited the Board’s ability to make informed financial decisions. Why, instead of transferring appropriations from accounts where funding provided in the budget was not needed into accounts that were in danger of being over expended, they inappropriately transferred expenditures from over-expended accounts to accounts with appropriations remaining in order to keep expenditures in individual accounts under the budgeted figures? Why were internal controls over the TownÕ s fuel inventory and usage not appropriately designed to adequately safeguard the TownÕ s fuel? And, these Ò discrepencies,Ó unfortunately, are only the tip of the iceberg. But, have you noticed? We havenÕ t heard a peep out of Mr. Fenimore regarding any of these activities, and I would wager a bet you wonÔ t. It took a good part of Ms. Bartley’s first term in office, with the assistance of her clerk and an outside financial expert, to unscramble and straighten out the mess that was the Town’s financial records. So until Mr. Fenimore does some explaining as to the ComptrollerÕ s charges, and until he is able to get his facts straight, he is fooling no one with his hypocritical and meanspirited stone throwing at Ms. Bartley. Evelyn Hatch, Former Elizabethtown Town Board and Planning Board Member

Editorial hits the mark To the Editor: Mr. Alexander, in his passionate request for Mr. Rove to Ò please butt outÓ of the 21st Congressional District race, expresses what many Americans think about the involvement of super PACÕ s in our political system. My only hope is that as we approach the November election, he expresses the same outrage when and if the Koch brothers move in with their Ò ruthless attacksÓ against Aaron Wolf, the Democratic candidate. WeÕ ll be watching. Susan Forrest, North River

Piano by Nature

To the Editor: I want to thank everyone who contributed in making the weekend Piano By Nature fundraising event a success. It really does take a village to make things happen- and in our case, people from several Ô villagesÕ ! IÕ d like to especially thank our wonderful and supportive audiences, The Crary Foundation, Jim Kinley, Mary Bell, Liz Rapalee, The Meter Maids (Carole Harsh, Cherie LaDuke, Jennifer Scofield and Carla Brassard), The Kiwanis Club (and particularly Ô rain-manÕ Kevin Hall and his crew of tent setter-uppers), Peggy Staats, Dan Linder, the Piano by Nature board (Nancy Fink, Carole Harsh, Barbara Lewis, Kevin Cooper, David Lartaud, Rob DeMuro, William Pfaff, and Jennifer Moore), ErnieÕ s, Essex County Printing- Lori Hall, the Valley News (Keith Lobdell and Pete De-

Mola), Press-Republican (Suzanne Moore, Robin Caudell), Lake Champlain Weekly, Bejamin Pomerance, Willex, Helen DeChant, Colin Wells, Kathy Recchia, and everyone who has helped us to get the word out about our concerts all season long.

Wilmington improving To the Editor: In recent years, Wilmington has been developing its recreational assets to make our community more attractive for residents, visitors and businesses. Our town parks have seen improvements ranging from new beach facilities and kayak rentals to a world-class mountain biking skills track to state-of-the-art skateboard ramps. State forest preserve lands around our community have new snowmobile trails, top-notch mountain biking trails and scenic hiking trails. The Ausable River continues to be one of our most valuable recreational assets. This time of year, seeing anglers with their fly-rods around town is as common as seeing snowboarders and skiers in winter. The town just co-hosted with Team Placid Planet a cycling event that draws people from the Northeast and Canada, and is gearing up for the fourth annual Wilmington Whiteface Bike Fest Weekend, June 20-22. The weekend will include a Ò jump jamÓ with the Krushers BMX Stunt Team, a party at the beach with live music and local vendors, and two grueling racesÑ the infamous uphill pedal to the castle on Whiteface Mountain, and the 100-kilometer mountain biking odyssey to Elizabethtown and back. (The latter is tough enough to qualify some finishers for ColoradoÕ s gritty Leadville 100 bike race.) One of the newest improvements around town is the installation of signs to help people find our recreational gems, thanks in large part to grants through New York Department of State and the Essex County Public Health Creating Healthy Places program. Also thanks to an Essex County grant, we will offer a new mountain biking shuttle service this year, dropping riders off at the start of the locally named Ò Poor ManÕ s Downhill,Ó a 3-mile, 1,200-foot descent, screamer of a ride that follows a state snowmobile trail. There is more work to do and while we face many of the same challenges as other rural areas, the momentum is positive and the town is grateful for state and county grant funds, the support of the Whiteface Region Visitor’s Bureau, Regional Office of Sustainable Tourism, ORDA and Whiteface Mountain, NYSDEC, Barkeater Trails Alliance (BETA), citizen volunteers, as well as others helping to promote WilmingtonÕ s recreational assets. WeÕ re looking forward to a busy summer! Randy Preston Supervisor, Town of Wilmington

“Red” opened at Pendragon

LAKE PLACID Ñ Ò REDÓ opened at Pendragon Theatre on June 12 with much success. Our own Burdette Parks has the lead role as abstract painter Mark Rothko. The 2 man show also stars Tyler Nye and takes place in RothkoÕ s New York studio in the late 50Õ s.

In addition to being a sponsor of the production of this 2010 Tony Award Winner, Adirondack Artists Guild members have assembled an exhibit entitled Ò Adirondack Interpretations of REDÓ in the theater lobby. With a couple exceptions, most of our members do not work as abstractly as Rothko did, but we all found ways to focus on the color red and pull some abstract concepts into our work. The play has additional performances June 14, 20-23 & 26-28, July 2, 3 & 5. To make reservations: 518-8911854; $22 ahead, $25 at the door. Our exhibit will have a reception on Friday June 20 from 5 7. Please join us and yes - there is a performance of Ò REDÓ that evening too.

water rescue.Ó Streiff said the trainees’ existing skills ranged from proficient to expert, in which Ò everyone has a basic level of swift water awareness at least,Ó Streiff said. Ò And we have some technicians among us.Ó The training focused on paddling techniques, self rescue, swimming in swift water and the use of throw bags. Throw bags are Ò something that every ranger carries and many emergency responders,Ó Streiff said. Ò ThatÕ s nothing but a rope and a bag that you can throw out into the water when you canÕ t reach someone to effect the rescue.Ó Bruce Lomnitzer, a forest ranger from Indian Lake and Hudson River Gorge, who was at the training, is enthusiastic about his job. Ò My personal opinion is that IÕ m on everybody elseÕ s vacation,Ó Lomnitzer said. Ò I get to go rafting, white water kayaking, mountain biking [and] ATVing. IÕ m on the helicopter crew, so I do hoist operations and everything like that. I also do caving. IÕ ve got one of the nicest and most pristine caves in Hamilton County, Eagle Cave. [ItÕ s a] beautiful cave, but itÕ s a little technical. It keeps me busy.Ó Lomnitzer said the main motivation behind the training was to get rangers used to inflatable kayaks, which had

been nicknamed Ò duckiesÓ and were quite versatile. Ò They blow up pretty quickly,Ó Lomnitzer said. Ò TheyÕ re a good summer level rescue boat, especially if you donÕ t have a kayaking roll. Because if you fall over, you just get out of it, clammer back on it and keep on going down.Ó Lomnitzer said the degree to which particular forest rangers are familiar with boating is mostly a result of the geography of where theyÕ re stationed. Ò The nice thing about a forest ranger is what you do is that you move into your area,” Lomnitzer said. “You find out what really needs to be done there, and you become pretty much the expert of that. I moved to Indian Lake in 2000. By 2001, I started boating, and itÔ s pretty much dominated my life.Ó Lomnitzer said he his fellow trainees were gaining from the experience. Ò No matter what, as soon as you get someone into an inflatable kayak, even on the flat water they’re starting to learn,Ó Lomnitzer said. Ò TheyÕ re starting to learn their general paddle strokes. TheyÕ re learning what the water can do. And they’re learning that the inflatable kayaks are actually very stable.Ó Glen Bronson, a forest ranger from Clinton County, said the training was mostly a refresher course for him. Ò WeÕ ve done this before,Ó Bronson said. Ò It gets us back in the water, get used to the feel of things. WeÕ re doing rescue training as well as search training.Ó
