State Land Master Plan amendment to specify uses for state-owned railroad lines and railroad beds By Kim Dedam STA FF W RITER

RAY BROOK | Adirondack Park Agency commissioners took a first look at proposed changes to the definition, management and use of Adirondack Park State Land “Travel Corridors.” They did not weigh in last week on the proposed State Land Master Plan (SLMP) amendment, but they did open discussion to public hearing and review. APA Deputy Director Kathy Regan outlined six options clarifying land-use and regulation of a Travel Corridor. » APA Cont. on pg. 11

County ponders higher age to buy smokes Essex County is considering restricting tobacco sales By Lohr McKinstry STA FF W RITER

ELIZABETHTOWN | The Essex County Board of Supervisors moved forward Monday on a local law that would raise the purchase age in the county for tobacco from 18 to 21. After an hour of discussion that included how much businesses would lose from reduced cigarette sales to restricting a person rights, the board’s Human Services Committee voted 6-3 to go to public hearing on the proposed ordinance. The hearing was set for 9 a.m. on Monday, April 9 in the Old County Courthouse at Elizabethtown. Essex County Public Health Director Linda Beers asked the committee to move forward on the law. She said it was part of the Adirondack Health Institutes’s regional Tobacco 21 effort to discourage youths from becoming addicted to tobacco use. Beers said studies show 96 percent of smokers start before

the age of 21. She said estimates are that about 145 county residents die from smoking-related diseases annually. The statewide minimum tobacco purchase age is 18, but counties can raise it by local law. “By moving this legislation it is our hope it removes the pipeline to younger children,” Beers said. “My dad was addicted at the age of 16, suffered a massive heart attack at the age of 44. He was chronically ill. “It was completely due to his excessive smoking as a young person.” She said Tobacco 21 can remove the possibility of addicting another generation. Elizabethtown-Lewis Central School senior Lee Turner, a member of the anti-tobacco group Reality Check, addressed the board. “I have asthma from being exposed to second-hand smoke as a kid,” Turner said. “The first time I was ever offered a cigarette was when I was 13 years old. I said no, but a lot of kids my age did not say no. There are kids in my class addicted to tobacco, 17, 18 and some 19 year olds.” She said some students in her school give tobacco to younger children. » Smoking Cont. on pg. 5

Keene Valley library wins major grant awards Secure the Future capital projects receive $25,000 from Cloudsplitter; Pilcrow awards $800 for children’s book collection By Kim Dedam STA FF W RITER

KEENE VALLEY | The Keene Valley Library Association has won two major grant awards. A Secure the Future capital campaign contribution of $25,000 came from the Cloudsplitter Foundation. And an $800 grant from the Pilcrow Foundation will help the library add new, hardcover children’s books to their

permanent collection.


With two-thirds of their goal in place, Secure the Future looks to raise $1.5 million to renovate the historic library. The association has thus far raised $1.2 million, which includes over $857,000 from individual contributions and more than $300,000 from state grant and private foundations. In announcing grant awards this month, the library’s Volunteer Grants Coordinator Olivia Dwyer said the capital campaign will transform the library facility. “While preserving the architectural heritage of the 1896 building, renovations will modernize aging infrastructure to ensure energy efficiency and structural integrity. An update to the children’s reading room has been completed; new meeting areas, study areas, upgraded; technology and a makers’ space will be completed in 2018.” The Keene Valley Library serves as a community hub for Keene’s residents and visitors, hosting more than 200 events

518-597-3444 annually, Dwyer said. According to Library Association Director Karen Glass, the generous donation from Cloudsplitter Foundation adds momentum to the capital campaign homestretch. “The Cloudsplitter Foundation’s contribution gives us tremendous momentum to reach our fundraising goal and secure the library’s future,” Glass said in a news release. “Their support to our project and others throughout the Adirondacks is vital to building successful, sustainable communities.” At the Cloudsplitter Foundation, Director Chenille Palyswiat highlighted the library’s important function in community. “From sharing books, to history, to cups of tea, the Keene Valley Library isn’t just a library; it’s an epicenter for the community,” she said. “Cloudsplitter sees a lot of value in that, and is pleased to partner with Keene Valley Library at this very exciting time for them.”







The facility is also the designated library for Keene Central School and serves its 177 students grades Kindergarten through 12. In that role, Dwyer said, the library provides childhood literacy programs for all ages, from infants and toddlers to pre-Kindergarten groups. “The Pilcrow Foundation grant allows us to refresh and expand our children’s collection with new books on our shelves,” Glass said of the Pilcrow gift, one of 35 rural public library grants made in 20 states last year. “We know that reading to and with children every day and providing them with frequent opportunities to read on their own are important activities for literacy development,” Pilcrow Foundation Director Karen Timmermans said in announcing the award. “Literacy is the greatest gift we can give to our children; the public library is where we can start.” ■


Founded in 2013, the Pilcrow Foundation provides new hardcover children’s books to rural public libraries across the United States. The Cloudsplitter Foundation works to improve the physical and cultural environment in the Adirondack Mountains. And in 2016, the foundation distributed $1,188,721 to organizations working throughout the region. The Keene Valley Library Association was established in 1885.

Congress race enters new phase as candidates seek signatures Seven Democrats now circulating petitions to gain ballot access By Pete DeMola EDITOR

ELIZABETHTOWN | After months of forums, fundraisers, meet and greets and rubber chicken dinners, the race for New York’s 21st Congressional District has entered a new phase with measurable, concrete benchmarks. Petitioning for signatures began March 6. Democrats seeking to unseat Rep. Elise Stefanik (RWillsboro) now have five weeks to obtain 1,250 signatures to make the ballot. Failure to collect enough valid signatures will send the hopefuls packing — at least as Democrats. Candidates took to the streets last week. Emily Martz went door-to-door in Wilton, Saratoga County. Just one year ago, Martz was leading grassroots protests against the Trump administration in Saranac Lake. Now that discontent has evolved into a full-fledged campaign operation. “It’s not just frustration, but standing for something, and understanding that the country is in a tough spot,” Martz said. The candidate has been beating down the pavement for 14 months, and called the petition process “a natural progression.” “I have literally worn a hole in the bottom of my sole from being on the sidewalk,” Martz said. David Mastrianni launched his effort in Corinth in Saratoga. “It’s a fascinating thing,” said Mastrianni, a Saratoga oncologist. “I have never done petitioning before. I’m really enjoying it, and have met a lot of interesting people.” He marveled that for a country where disliking politicians is somewhat of a national pastime, folks sure are friendly to

the candidates themselves.


Seven Democrats are angling for the party’s nomination. If more than one makes the ballot, a primary election will be held June 26. Patrick Nelson personally canvassed neighborhoods in his hometown of Stillwater in Saratoga County last Tuesday. “For me to put on pair of sneakers and go door to door, I’m a happy guy,” he said. The candidate is a familiar sight. Nelson sits on the Saratoga Democratic Party Committee and petitions for local candidates every two years, as well as for state and federal representatives. Nelson ran for local office in 2015 and has worked on the campaigns of the past two Democratic nominees, including serving as Mike Derrick’s field director in 2016. “It’s exciting,” said Nelson, who has modeled his volunteer-driven campaign after that of U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont. “It’s good we have something really important to have our volunteers do.” Tedra Cobb started at the southern end of the district and had worked her way up to Jefferson County by the end of the week. “We have a plethora of volunteers on the street pounding the pavement,” said Cobb. “That’s the mission in March.” For Cobb, the process is the culmination of all her efforts since declaring her candidacy last July. Asking for voter support is something that comes naturally to the former St. Lawrence County lawmaker. “I’m the only one who has ever been elected before, so getting petitions for me is the democratic process — it’s exciting,” Cobb said. Katie Wilson, who spent the day in Cumberland Head, called the beginning of the process a “reality check.” “Yesterday, there was that moment of reality where we were knocking on doors, shaking hands and discussing issues they care about,” Wilson said. “It was a breath of fresh air outside echo chambers, Democratic committees and Indivisible groups.” Voters are generally welcoming, she said, with many in-

One even gave her a package of hand warmers. “A lot of people just want to be heard,” Wilson said. “They want someone to listen to stories and needs and trust that someone cares.” Wilson secured the endorsement of the Working Families Party last week, a left-leaning party with 41,000 registered voters statewide. Clinching their support will allow for the deployment of additional resources in the field to gather signatures for both parties, “and otherwise provide assistance in strategy and field work,” Wilson said.


The five-week sprint comes when the race has no clear frontrunner seeking to emerge from the scrum. Until now, Don Boyajian has touted himself as the leading candidate based on his fundraising strength, bringing in $353,478 raised since declaring his candidacy last August. » NY21 Cont. on pg. 7

School hosts annual science fair By Keith Lobdell STA FF W RITER

KEENE VALLEY | Students at Keene Central School put

their minds to work March 8 at the seventh annual Super Scientific Science Slam, with numerous experiments and tests taking place by students and on display for the community. “K-12 students enthusiastically presented science projects and demonstrations to their peers, families, community members and volunteer judges,” coordinator Jen Kazmierczak said. “The grand finale of the evening is a favorite, which includes the fourth grade “Edible Car Challenge” and the fifth grade Egg Drop.” Kazmierczak said in addition to interactive student projects, community organizations set up displays and hands on activities for all ages, including the Ausable River Association, Adirondack Mountain Club, The Adirondack Nature Conservancy, The Wild Center, Adirondack Watershed Institute and the Keene Valley Fire Department. Elly Smith and Jaidalena Bujold examined a dogfish for their science project. “It is exciting and interesting to dissect and learn different types of things about them,” said Smith. “It’s for Marine Biology and we are learning about different species and right now we are learning about coral reefs,” said Bujold. “It is interesting to find out these things.” “I’m working on purified water and spontaneous freezing,” said Brenna DeWalt on her experiment. “Since there is no purities because they are chemically removed, it should freeze up to -40 degrees. If it is below 32 degrees and it is shaken, or you drop something into it, it will spontaneously freeze.

Cora Johnson based her project on a subject she would like to learn more about in the future. “I’m interested in planes and want to learn how to fly,” she said. “The aerodynamics on the wings is very interesting and has a couple of different principles on how they work.” ■ — Jill Lobdell contributed to this story

» Fire Cont. from pg. 1 By Kim Dedam STA FF W RITER

KEENE VALLEY| Fire tore through a community centerpiece here on Sunday. The Valley Grocery was destroyed in a blaze that started in a back utility area, according to officials. The call to emergency dispatch was made by neighbors who live across the street. Alarms were raised around 3 p.m., Keene Valley Hose and Ladder Co. Chief Rusty Hall said. Fire equipment and first responders reached the grocery store in under three minutes. But even driving from his home, approaching the fire at 1815 Route 73, Hall said smoke was billowing up over the singlestory, gabled building. “I live a mile south of the hamlet, and on the way, I immediately informed dispatch that we had heavy black smoke visible,” Hall said. The grocery store is closed on Sundays. No one was in the building at the time fire broke out. Owners Bruce and Carol Reed also live in Keene Valley. The blaze tore through the ceiling and was pushed deep into the roofing structure, Hall said. “It started in the back, right-hand corner where the coolers and compressors were. It was caught between a tin ceiling and a metal roof. We hit it with our deck guns.”

Smoke was so thick that making entry proved too dangerous. Essex County Emergency Services Director Don Jaquish said the firefighting attack focused on the area of origin and containment to keep the fire from spreading to nearby homes and businesses. In the heart of Keene Valley’s hamlet, stores, restaurants, homes and workshops are built close together on short, narrow streets. “It was a hard one,” said Jaquish said. “The grocery is very close to neighboring buildings. They did very well containing the fire,” he said of the first response. “The building south of the grocery was very close.” Flames did reach out from under the eaves as firefighters fought to put the fire out. “There were times when you couldn’t see across (Route) 73 at first,” the fire chief said of conditions. “You don’t want to commit people inside a grocery store. It’s like a maze with all the aisles and shelving, it can be very confusing. You just have to be careful,” Jaquish said. “A couple of times entry was considered, but it wasn’t safe to be in the building,” Hall said. Fire traveling unseen inside the roof structure meant personnel couldn’t get on top to vent it either. Lake Placid Volunteer Fire Department assisted with its aerial truck to douse flames from above. “When we couldn’t put somebody on the roof, they came down from Lake Placid,” Hall said.

» Smoking Cont. from pg. 1 Supervisor Stephen McNally (D-Minerva) said he was concerned by revenue loss to stores in his town, and thought 21 year olds would just give tobacco to 18 year olds. “They’ll just drive to Warren County purchase cigarettes,” he said. “These are kids signing up to fight in Iraq.” Beers said it’s a regional approach, so Warren County may also pass a local law. “Twenty-one-year-olds do not hang out with

The grocery was an old vehicle service station at one time. State Police and fire personnel closed the stretch of Route 73 through Keene Valley for several hours on Sunday afternoon. A total of 14 first response, fire and emergency services agencies in Essex County assisted Keene Valley Fire, Jaquish said. Volunteer fire departments with equipment and personnel included Keene, Lake Placid, Elizabethtown, Westport’s Air One, Essex County Emergency Services, county fire investigators along with support from Jay, Upper Jay, AuSable Forks and Keeseville. “At least seven fire departments were here to assist, most of them were doing the tanker shuttle,” Hall said. “We had some portable ponds in the front parking lot for water in addition to the hydrants.” Keene Valley had equipment back in their station a few blocks away by about 9 p.m. on Sunday. No one was injured in fighting the fire.

Thoughts from Behind the Pressline

Feeling anxious?

Another interesting article came to our attention recently published in the New York Times. By Dan Alexander Farhad Manjoo’s • PUBLISHER • “For Two Months, I Got My News From Print Newspapers. Here’s What I Learned” recounted his experiences. You can read it at ny times. com/2018/03/07/technology/twomonths-news-newspapers.html. For those of us born when broadcast was in its infancy, and Al Gore had not yet created the internet, the flow of news was such that one had time to process it and focus on the important aspects of daily living. Today we are so plugged into news and events received through many venues, each with a slanted perspective and presented in a glorified mode that we are made to believe the earth is shaking and the sky is about to fall. Add to that the urgency to get it out first and worry if it’s accurate later, creates much of this false information that once out in the public arena is never completely corrected, adding to a narrative that encourages speculation, hyperbole and paranoia. After nearly two months of his selfimposed break from the digital news flow, Mr. Manjoo realized “that the digitization of news is ruining how we collectively process information. Technology allows us to burrow into echo chambers, exacerbating misinformation and polarization and softening up society for propaganda. With artificial intelligence making audio and video as easy to fake as text, we’re entering a hall-of-mirrors dystopia, what some are calling an information apocalypse.” After his experiment, Mr. Manjoo offered three pieces of advice for the intake of news: Get news, not too quickly and avoid social media. He notes real life is slow and it takes time for professionals to figure out exactly what happened. On social networks, people don’t just post stories, they post their take on the story, underscoring how it proves their position to be right. Perhaps the most important takeaway from the experiment and one Mr. Manjoo never realized before was, “I’m embarrassed about how much free time I have — in two months, I managed to read half a dozen books, took up pottery and (I think) became a more attentive husband and father.” Current events are important, but they should only affect a portion of our daily lives and should never be so consuming that we ignore the people and things in our lives that have far greater importance in making us who we are. We each only have one life to live and the herd mentality should never be our guiding light. ■

From the Editorial Board

Candidate’s apathy poses interesting question: Should reporters vote? Democratic congressional candidate Dylan Ratigan has never voted in his life. It’s an issue that has quickly defined his nascent campaign. The first-time candidate readily admitted his lack of civic engagement to reporters ahead of his campaign rollout last month, and acknowledged his apathy will be a cudgel with which his opponents will use to bash him. He’s not wrong. Ratigan, 45, has taken heat from his opponents, local residents, newspaper editorial boards and reporters alike, at least one of whom seemed incredulous at his bombastic press conference in Saranac Lake last month and grilled him accordingly. Ratigan has copped to his apathy. “I was wrong in my belief that I could express my point of view relative to the political activity of this economy through journalism and through business,” said Ratigan, a former cable news host and financial reporter. “I was sorely mistaken.” We’re as high-minded as the next person when it comes to expressing your constitutional rights, and have repeatedly pleaded with readers to go to the polls in state, local and federal elections. But Ratigan brings up a valid point: What he appeared to be trying to say,


Setting record straight on ambulance usage

To the Editor: I’ve been told there’s a petition circulating around town requesting that Johnsburg Emergency Squad members never use the ambulance for personal use, even if just going to the store. As president of the squad, I think it’s most important that our crews are ready to respond immediately at all times of the day. That’s why I request they take the ambulance if they go to the store or out to breakfast in town: if a call comes over, they don’t have to go back to the building to get one. I estimate the ambulance makes this mile and a half trip to North Creek about 2 to 4 times a week at a total cost to the town in diesel of about $50 a year. Our full-time paramedics stay in the building for 36 straight hours. Though they try to bring enough supplies for the duration, sometimes they run out. They receive no health benefits

perhaps inelegantly, is that he viewed his contribution to society through the prism of his reporting gig as wholly adequate. All news reporters see themselves as warriors chasing some type of noble truth, and many of them find meaning in furthering some type of change, whether speaking truth to injustice or correcting some type of societal wrong. On the other hand, we must balance this with being neutral, and shouldn’t be pushing an agenda. To admit doing so — even when manning a desk at a left-leaning cable news station like the MSNBC — is an admission that networks are somewhat biased. That bias, of course, is a chief tool used to undermine support in the media daily, most maddeningly, when partisans dismiss reporting as fake or fraudulent simply due to a source they may find illegitimate. So in a way, while Ratigan has somewhat hemmed himself in, his admission brings up another point that should also be considered: Should political reporters make their political preferences public? And further, should they even vote in the races they cover? Much ink has been spilled on the subject with writers opining on every conceivable

Adirondack PILOT debate missing one critical detail

angle over the years. Obviously the decision to vote is an extremely personal and complex one, and asking anyone to justify that rationale publicly is asking them to strip back and expose a deeply intimate and personal set of values. But Ratigan is now no longer a private citizen, but rather a political candidate seeking your support. It’s fair to pose those questions to Ratigan, but the broader context should not be lost. Voting is a sacred duty, so is covering the news objectively. After all, we’re supposed to be the gatekeepers. Objectivity is the chief pillar underpinning our jobs. But we also believe it is possible to balance professional responsibilities with our civic ones. Voter disenfranchisement has been endlessly dissected since a shock upset swept the current occupant of the White House into office in 2016. Perhaps a candidate who has willingly sat out the process has more to offer the public discussion than we think. Ratigan shouldn’t be given a pass, but his admission isn’t a deal-breaker, either. ■ —The Editorial Board

said that the state must budget the necessary funds to pay taxes on its forest lands in the Adirondacks. Adirondack communities can’t afford the PILOT. Many have state lands that compose over 50 percent to as much as over 90 percent of their tax base. The Adirondack Association of Towns and Villages, when I was its very fi rst chairman in 1993-1994, proposed amending the Real Property Tax Law Section 532 dealing with the taxation of certain state lands. Our resolution called for the addition of a new subsection, which would read as follows: “No law repealing subsection (A) hereof shall be effective unless enacted by the state legislature at two successive regular sessions by a two-thirds majority vote of the senate and assembly.” Subsection A of Sect. 532 reads: “All wild or forest lands owned by the state within the Forest Preserve.” The resolution also supported the amendment of Article VII of the state constitution to provide an additional Section 20. “The state budget shall include

the amount necessary to pay the real property taxes on wild or forest lands owned by the state within the Forest Preserve.” I call upon every taxing entity within the Adirondack Park to pass resolutions in support of this much needed amendment to our state’s RPTL along with Section 20 to the state’s constitution Article VII. Moving swiftly might get the amendment to the state’s constitution on the ballot this fall. Adirondack elected officials reach out to each of their own state assembly members and state senators as well. Dean D. Lefebvre, Tupper Lake ■

Ratigan touted “tremendous response” to his campaign from groups throughout the district. “The truth is the political system isn’t working for people, and it resonates universally because it’s so obvious,” Ratigan said. “People respond to hearing the truth in an inspiring way.”

But others willingly volunteered the size of their operations: Martz’s campaign gathered 200 signatures last Tuesday, and their effort consists of 90 trained canvassers alone. “We have overall upwards of 250 campaign volunteers,” Martz said. “I would say this has been a tangible and visible representation of what our campaign is all about.” Nelson said he’s got a team of 80 volunteers currently carrying petitions, with others pledging to sign up to help later in the process. Cobb touted 200 carriers and 500 total volunteers. Wilson estimated between 50 to 60 volunteers augmented by “three to five” paid staffers. “Five-hundred have signed up one way or another,” she said. Mastrianni estimated “3 or 4” staffers working the streets at any given day out of 20 total volunteers altogether. Dylan Ratigan declined to disclose precise numbers. “It’s not meaningful in my case,” Ratigan said. “The numbers are changing so quickly every day.” Ratigan said he was ready to roll with petitions last Tuesday, just two weeks after formally entering the race. The latest candidate joined the fray a full year after Nelson, and about eight months after Boyajian, Cobb, Wilson and Martz. The Saranac Lake native bristled at the use of the phrase “playing catch-up,” arguing it implies an issue or a problem. “The work is where the fun is,” Ratigan said. “Now the grind of petitions is underway because of the late arrival. It’s a lot of work in a short amount of time to accomplish that organization.” » Letters Cont. from pg. 6 Evidently a reader took exception to the fact that people are happy with the congresswoman’s performance to date. There are 435 members in the U.S. House. The senior members exert more influence in the creation of legislation. While Rep. Stefanik is early in only her fourth year in Congress, she already has provided substantial impetus on key bills effecting North Country residents. The recent multi-year funding for North Country health centers is a perfect example of the type of legislation the congresswoman has influenced. More funding for environmental issues effecting residents from the St. Lawrence River, thru the Adirondack Park and even to Saratoga are again bills the congresswoman

Observers of the district’s politics said candidates are faced with numerous obstacles. The weather has been unforgiving the first week, canceling a Boyajian event in Glens Falls, for instance. Others braved the elements. “When we petitioned for Bernie, it was January and February and this was certainly better,” Nelson said. The shoulder season is when many residents leave town, while the rural nature of the district itself can present a challenge. The size of the field may also make garnering enough signatures a challenge, and since the district’s Democratic committees have pledged to remain neutral ahead of a possible primary, candidates don’t have the extra firepower of institutional support.

mittees are getting signatures for the ballot.” Only registered Democrats can sign the petitions. New York’s 21st Congressional District has 117,562 registered Democrats as of last November, according to the state Board of Elections. That means at least 7.5 percent of registered voters will each have to sign for individual candidates in order for all seven to make the ballot. Voters may not sign for multiple candidates. “So if you sign and witness for one (candidate), you can’t sign and witness for another,” Barrett said. As a general rule of thumb, Barrett said campaigns should double the 1,250 goal in order to account for routine errors — including duplicate signatures and other unintended mistakes that can see names being voided. It’s up to the campaigns to police themselves, Barrett said. Candidates have until April 12 to circulate petitions. As an attorney with the biggest war chest, Boyajian is perhaps best poised to mount a serious legal challenge to knock out his opponents during the post-circulation challenge process.

Mastrianni admitted the numbers can be daunting. “I certainly have a newfound appreciation for people who do this regularly and for the organization it takes,” he said. “I give them a lot of credit.” Nelson said training new volunteers is an exercise in itself that helps democracy in the long run, creating the next generation of leadership. “It’s my hope the people volunteering for the campaign and working for us now will become committee members and run for local office and state and county office,” he said.

Our featured pet this week is LOUIS, a Chocolate Labrador Retriever-mix who was found lying in a mud puddle barely alive. Thankfully, between our wonderful veterinarians and caring staff, as well as Louis’s amazing fighting spirit, he is now healthy, happy, and ready to go to a forever home. Louis does have diabetes, a chronic health condition, but with careful monitoring we think it may be brought under control. This older gentleman is partially blind and takes a little longer to get around than some of the younger pups, but he has so many good qualities, you will not be able to resist his big brown eyes. Louis is loving, kind, sweet and exceptionally gentle, always wagging his tail and happy to meet everyone on his path. He is a happy, silly boy with a zest for life that brightens the day of everyone he encounters. We know that with the care needs that accompany his diabetes and his senior age of 10 years, it will take a special someone to come forward and accept this big chocolate boy in their life — but we have seen it time and time again that our special needs pets often are some of the most rewarding companions. Please consider adopting Louis or maybe even sponsor our very special Lab! ■

Paying out of pocket for Lyme disease treatment

To the Editor: Please help pass the word. Lyme disease, rocky mountain spotted fever and malaria are all here in this area. I was diagnosed with Lyme disease in your hospital, Elizabethtown Community Hospital, in July 2017. I feel I’m still fighting for my life. Last October, I was forced to see an unconventional doctor in Delmar. They diagnosed me also with the Rocky Mountain spotted fever and walking pneumonia. They

feel I have had these for 12-13 years. Please get checked if you have these symptoms: 1. Rigidity 2. Painful joints 3. Shortness of breath 4. Other symptoms, such as weakness, tiredness, etc. I tried to get help from several doctors over the years. Their reply was always, “I don’t think so.” At present, I’m being treated by an unconventional doctor in Delmar. This means I pay out of pocket. Insurance has not paid for any of my office calls yet. It’s in appeals. Please get the word out to the medical professionals, politicians and the public that this is real. I don’t want anyone else to have to go through this. Phillis Washburn, Redford ■

An exhibit featuring the work of mixed-media artist Daesha Devon Harris opened at the Courthouse Gallery in Lake George on March 10. A Saratoga Springs native, Harris’ work combines imagery often sourced from her hometown with historical and biographical information about her subjects. “Through my artwork I strive to promote a sincere understanding of the contemporary and historic contributions of people of color with insight, compassion and protectiveness,” the artist said in a statement. “I endeavor to capture the ‘life’ that continues to evolve amidst struggle and success. And with ardent respect for a profound past, I challenge the viewer to consider the complexity of issues facing communities of color.” The exhibit will be on display through April 14.

The Roaring 20’s come to life at Westport Central Drama Club to perform “The Boy Friend” next weekend By Keith Lobdell STA FF W RITER

WESTPORT | Along the banks of the French Riviera, a young heiress is seeking to find a boyfriend in the 1920’s. To find out the answers in this musical spoof on comedies of the Roaring 20’s, head to Westport Central School March 23-25 for the WCS Drama Club performance of “The Boy Friend,” with music, book and lyrics from Sandy Wilson. The play is again directed by drama club advisor Diana McGuigan, whose been working with the cast for the several weeks in preparing for the show and is looking forward to presenting something that may be new to the audience. Senior Malynda Lobdell plays the girl at the middle of the plot, Polly Brown. “I would call this a British Hallmark play,” Lobdell said. “It’s very cheesy — but very lovely — and there are a lot of catchy songs. Everything has been blocked and worked on

The cast and crew of Westport Drama Club’s production of “The Boy Friend.” Photo by Keith Lobdell and I think it is going well.” Senior Lizzie Stephens plays the French maid.

“I have had the chance to have a relationship with the younger members of the cast as well as the older girls,” she said. “It has been hard to balance with everyone’s schedule, but I think it is going well and we are going to progress from here on.” Senior Taylor Gough also felt the cast was improving with each practice. “It has been a lot of fun singing and goofing around with Lawrence (Lobdell),” said Gough. “I think as we get closer to the show you will really start to see us buckle down and deliver a fun show.” Junior Will Napper is in his second drama club production, while eighth grader Wren VanDeusen is in her third. “I play an older English gentleman who is very flirty with the younger ladies,” said Napper. “Everyone has been working hard to learn the singing and dancing.” “It has been really fun to work with all these people,” said VanDeusen. “I get to play a very stubborn and head strong character in Fay.” Performances are at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, March 23-24, with a Sunday afternoon show at 2 p.m. March 25. Admission for the show is $9 for adults and $5 for students and seniors. ■ CLIENT UVMHN

» APA Cont. from pg. 1 Alternative 1 is a no-action version. Alternative 6 is the option preferred by APA land-use planners, she said. In Alternative 6, APA’s definition of Travel Corridor would allow both railroad and railtrail use on the Remsen-Lake Placid Travel Corridor and on any or all state-owned railroad corridors in the Adirondack Park. “This alternative would also allow for a rail-with-trail” use, Regan said. It proposes to add new terminology to the SLMP, including “rail-trail,” “trail without rails,” “rail bed,” and “road bed,” items that had not previously been part of formal Travel Corridor definition. Alternative 6 also identifies land-use protection measures for water quality, including guidelines for restrooms on Travel Corridors, which might include pit-potties and port-o-potties. The preferred alternative would maintain bridges and culverts on Travel Corridors as conforming structures, along with boardwalks, fencing, railings and observation decks. The Travel Corridors, which include state highways’ right-of-way, are often heavily traveled areas, Regan said. Bike racks would be allowed in Travel Corridor Alternative 6, but must be made of natural materials, such as wood, Regan said. Travel Corridors with rails would be managed for operation of rail cars, rail bikes and snowmobiles. And trails may parallel the existing tracks in this proposed clarification, the deputy director said. Travel Corridors without rails, she added, would allow biking, hiking, cross-country skiing and other non-motorized travel, plus snowmobile use in winter. Amendment Alternative 6 also formalizes Travel Corridor review process. “In order to take the rails out, there needs to be a Unit Management Plan,” Regan said. Initial -- but not comprehensive -- APA mapping research estimates some 800 miles



In 1974, according to DEC, the RemsenLake Placid railroad corridor was purchased by the state. And in 1979, Regan said, the definition of Travel Corridor was modified to include the 119-mile Remsen-Lake Placid line. “The interesting thing to note is that most changes made in 1979 ... included modifications to the highway criteria,” Regan said. “They sort of threw in the railroad and didn’t put in any guidelines.”

In addition to Alternative One, which takes no action, and preferred Alternative 6, APA amendment options propose either more broad-based action or language specific only to the Remsen-Lake Placid Travel Corridor. In short: Alternative 2 suggests reclassifying a portion of the Remsen-Lake Placid Travel Corridor. Alternative 3 would establish a wholly new classification category which would allow for conversion of a former rail corridor to a rail-trail and then place all or a section of the Remsen-Lake Placid Travel Corridor into this new land-use category. Alternative 4: Would revise the Travel Corridor definition and guidelines to allow a rail-trail on any former railroad corridor owned by the State or on any future railroad corridors yet to be acquired by the State. Alternative 5: Suggests revising Travel Corridor definition and use to allow a railtrail only on the 34-mile, Tupper Lake to Lake Placid portion of the Remsen-Lake Placid railroad line. To review all six proposed Travel Corridor clarifications, download the Draft Environmental Impact Statement at: apa. A final Environmental Impact Statement will include APA’s written response to public comments. ■


Regan presented a brief history of how Travel Corridor was defined by state land mapping in the first place. It was included in 1972 State Land Master Plan (SLMP_ documents as a land-use classification for highways, she said.

APA’s SLMP proposed amendment this year looks to clarify use and definition, albeit 40 years later. In 1996, the Remsen-Lake Placid Travel Corridor UMP was written with extensive public input via DEC and identified as a 119mile continuous asset. The UMP allowed upgrades to sections of the railroad track for use by scenic excursion trains. A 2008 amendment to Remsen-Lake Placid UMP allowed for management of vegetation along the railroad right-of-way, APA’s deputy director said. Then the highly contentious 2016 amendment to the UMP divided the corridor into two sections, allowing conversion of 34 miles on the northern end to a multi-use trail. DEC, the state Department of Transportation and APA plan halted scenic railroad use between Saranac Lake and Lake Placid. Discontinuing use of the railroad line in 2017 also pushed away a new rail-bike business that ran between Saranac Lake and Lake Clear. No trains or rail-bikes ran along the line last year, and the Adirondack Railroad Preservation Society sued the state. The need for more precise definition of Travel Corridor comes in part in response to that lawsuit. A court decision handed down by Judge Robert G. Main Jr. in Franklin County Supreme Court last September said converting part of the 119-mile Travel Corridor to a trail constitutes “a reclassification

beyond the authority of the 2016 UMP.” Among other legal concerns, Main said a UMP process cannot be used to revise the State Land Master Plan. He halted removal of the rails. “The rationalization by respondents (state agencies) that a multi-recreational use trail is qualified for continuation as a Travel Corridor is not based in reason,” the judge said last fall. “It defies common sense. The Court rejects this contention as irrational and, hence, arbitrary and capricious.” Regan said DEC and APA recognized need to clarify the meaning and use of “Travel Corridor” with an amendment to the State Land Master Plan. Travel Corridor lands encompass some 1,078 miles of State and Interstate Highways, plus the 119-mile Remsen-Lake Placid Travel Corridor inside the Adirondack Park boundary. The proposed amendment, if adopted, would apply to “any future acquisition of railroad corridors with existing rails” inside the Blue Line. ■

Athlete of the Month Tate Frantz



NYSEF February Athlete of the Month is Tate Frantz of Lake Placid. Tate is a 12 year old ski jumper and Nordic combined athlete who attends Lake Placid Central School. Tate started jumping “at 8 years old with NYSEF and was motivated to get involved after my older brother, Kai, began jumping.” Tate recently won the U16 Ski Jumping National Championships in Anchorage, Alaska (at age 12)! Also in Alaska, Tate competed in the team jumping competition which was “a cool event to work together with other Eastern athletes.” Tate and his team won the U16 Team Jumping Competition.



MARCH 23 - 2LI, 2018


Tateʼs coach, Colin Delaney said, “Tate is extremely coachable and always thinking of ways of going outside the box in training.” Colin added, “the fear of jumping can be an obstacle…Tate got over this fear earlier than his peers and continues to build confidence while making positive improvements.” Some of Tateʼs rituals before major competitions are “wearing the same under suit and socks and trying to have peanut butter.” Tate is eager to “finish off the season strong and have fun.”



In the off season, Tate mountain bikes, bakes cookies, runs and plays soccer. Way to go, Tate!

For many high schools around the area, we are down to 15 weeks of school before the end of the year. For some, they are getting down to the last 15 weeks of high school. By Keith Lobdell That was me 24 years ago, count• COLUMNIST • ing down the days until I was “free.” I thought because I wasn’t immediately going to college, I would get to live the sweet life — or so I thought. Now I am looking at this situation through different eyes as a father of a senior student for the first of what (hopefully) will be three times, and it has been a different experience. Unlike myself, my daughter will be heading to college in August, committing to Southern Virginia University. So I have been able to experience the visits and talks with staff and auditioning for different programs within the college. I have also had the chance to watch her go through the decision process and the application process, something I never really did. In the end, it was a choice she made and we as parents are proud of. I am also getting to see the scholarship process, basically writing essay after essay to grab as much cash as possible. That part is also intriguing, mainly because I am the one now getting the bill so now hoping the wheel of fortune turns our way. Besides all that, however, it is a matter of getting prepared for a new chapter in life. My parents will tell you I had no fear of going out on my own. The most homesick I honestly ever felt is when I heard the song they played after Plattsburgh State scored a hockey goal. Not that I didn’t miss people or places — I just never dealt with homesickness in Sacramento or in Utah. Now, however, I am on the other side of the equation. The side that will feel something missing each time the National Anthem is sung. The one that will miss long trips and just talking. In short, the one who will wake up one morning in late August and realize there is someone is missing from the house, but knowing it is for all the right reasons. It will be interesting, emotional and new for all of us, but we are all looking forward to what we hope will be an amazing future. ■

series in five games (137.60) and Tanner Forbes 52nd with a score of 135 in one game. “I felt at home here,” Forbes said of playing with the varsity team. “I had some of my best games this year when I was moved up.” “When we looked back at the crowd and saw the crowd cheering for us, it was the best single moment of our careers,” Light said. “I just remember we were looking around and coach (Mark) Lacey was going through the numbers. Then he just looked at our crowd, threw both his hands up and screamed.” “They started handing us the championship shirts and my thought was, are you sure about this,” Thomas said. “It was so surreal.” For individual games, Atkins had the second highest for the day with a 235, while Thomas had a 221. “It still has not sunk in,” Miller said. “These kids worked very hard and they deserve this. It was great to have the school recognize them and their accomplishment.” Miller said he was appreciative of the work coach Lacey did, along with the support of the parents and families of the students. He said they were also thankful to North Bowl Lanes, which became their new home after Riverside closed. “I could not have done this without all of them,” he said. While the first boy’s team to capture a bowling state title, the Patriots join the 1986 Beekmantown girl’s squad as state champions. They are also the third state champion of the 2017-18 school year, joining the Chazy boy’s soccer team and Lake Placid boy’s Nordic ski team. ■

The AuSable Valley Patriots brought the NYSPHSAA Division II boy’s bowling title home with them to Clintonville, winning the title by 35 pins. It is the school’s first state title in any sport.


SYRACUSE | Heading into the final frame of the NYSPHSAA Division II championships March 10, the members of the AuSable Valley boy’s team said to each other something they said throughout the season. “Let’s do this.” That was exactly what they did, as anchor Tyler Atkins finished his 10th with three strikes and the Patriots claimed the first state championship for Section VII boy’s bowling and first state title every for AVCS. “It was different coming into school,” said Troy McDonald on March 12. “Everyone we walked by was smiling at us and saying congratulations.” “It was weird even at the hotel after the meet,” Atkins said. “When we got to the hotel, no one really knew us and we didn’t know them. When I went back to the hotel, all the other bowlers were coming up and remarking they saw us on the championship team. It was surreal.” The Patriots rolled a 5,025 over six games at the OnCenter in Syracuse, finishing 35 points above second place Lansingburgh of the Albany area. “Tyler (Atkins) won us the title by striking out,” Ryan Thomas said. “Their anchor bowler had a strike coming into the 10th and threw a strike on the first ball. His second ball left a spare, though, and Tyler pulled us through.” Coach Jeff Miller said from the time the team got to the OnCenter to practice, they worked very well together. “It was all them,” Miller said. “I saw how they were making adjustments in practice and also watching the other teams. Their thought was this was a brand new facility and no one had ever played there before, so they were going in on equal footing.” “The second we got there, we knew things were going to be different,” Tyler Light said. “It was a new and different place and we felt good just coming in.” “We made some major adjustments during the practice round and everything we were doing worked,” Thomas said. “These were not small changes either.” In the first three games, the Patriots opened with the lead after a 871 in the first game. The team then shot 863 and 804 for a total of 2,538, 74 pins ahead against then second place team Nanuet. “I was nervous at that point,” Logan Martineau said after the first three games. “It is different when you are bowling with the lead because you know more what you need to do.” Martineau said he gave the final thought before the start of the second series. “I looked at the seniors and said, you’re leaving here state champions,” he said. The Patriots rolled games of 824-837-826 in the second half, while Lansingburgh climbed their way out of seventh place with games of 926 and 890 to finish in second. Ryan Thomas was the top bowler in Division II, leading the Patriots with a 1,146 series over six games, an average of 191. Tyler Atkins placed second overall, averaging 188.17 per game with a total pin count of 1,128. Troy McDonald place 10th with a 1,021 (170.17), while Tyler Light was 27th with an 906 series (151), Logan Martineau 36th with a 688

Annual ‘Run for Health’ set for March 24 By Keith Lobdell STA FF W RITER

ELIZABETHTOWN | Whether you are a finely-tuned athlete, weekend warrior, casual walker or just a fan, everyone is welcome to come and be a part of the 38-year tradition known as the Doc Lopez Run for Health. The annual race will take place Saturday, March 24, with races including the half-marathon, 5K run and one-mile walk. “We are taking registrations for racers all the way up until the start,” said University of Vermont Health Network Elizabethtown Community Hospital’s Jane Hooper. “We are looking for anyone in the community to come out and race, volunteer or cheer on the runners because it can be very lonely between Keene Valley and Elizabethtown.” According to Hooper, the Doc Lopez Run for Health is an exciting race, with some serious terrain. There is a flat start to the race, a significant two-mile hill and then a gradual downhill for the final nine miles. “This race is likely one of the toughest, especially considering that it’s early in the race season,” she said. “The runners really deserve that medal at the end.” “Like the hospital itself, this long-standing event promotes health, physical activity and community participation.
