SARANAC LAKE | Saying that the timing was right and he wants to be able to chase his children around “as fast as I have to,” Olympic skier Andrew Weibrecht has called it a career. The Saranac Lake native said now was the right time to leave the sport as a professional. His daughters — the second is expected in June — are a main reason. » Weibrecht Cont. on pg. 12

Stefanik supports proposal to strengthen work requirements for food stamps GOP plan draws criticism from left By Pete DeMola EDITOR

WASHINGTON, D.C. | The House will vote on a bill this week that proposes implementing stricter work requirements on food stamp recipients. The proposed Farm Bill legislation tightens the requirements for applicants to enroll in job training pro-

grams in order to access food stamps. Formally known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, SNAP constitutes about 80 percent of the bill’s spending. The program currently contains some work requirements for able-bodied adults between the ages of 18 and 49 without young children. The proposed GOPpenned legislation would raise the age to 59 and would require recipients to work at least 20 hours per week. Recipients would alternately be required to enroll in vocational training

for the same amount of time, which would increase to 25 hours in 2026. The current $900 billion bill is scheduled to expire at the end of September. Republicans believe the work requirements will alleviate poverty and incentivize some 5 to 7 million beneficiaries to enter the workforce. But the measure, widely expected to be one of the last big policy fights before this year’s midterm elections, has Republicans and Democrats on track to clash.

STA FF W RITER

RAY BROOK | State land additions and changes to High Peaks Wilderness make it the largest single block of preserved land in New York state. Land use officials revealed plans to add trails, monitor impacts and expand recreational access throughout. The High Peaks would be redefined with Central and Outer High Peaks zones, incorporating the former Dix Wilderness via a new Casey Book Tract connection; Boreas Ponds Tract; MacIntyre Tracts and National Lead property into the Outer area. These newly added tracts unite with several smaller and reclassified parcels into a Wilderness unit of 275,460 acres. The entire High Peaks would be larger than Grand Teton National Park fee holdings of 272,751 acres and more than twice the total of the Appalachian Trail’s105,348 acres or Badlands National Park’s 110,658 acres. The revised Unit Management Plan (UMP) for High Peaks Wilderness presents significant additions for new trails, several relocated trails, backcountry ski routes, rock and ice climbing areas, camping sites, equestrian trails, plus wilderness handicapped-accessible lean-tos, canoe launch areas and tent sites, among many changes proposed. Planning by foresters at the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) looks to add trail infrastructure in three phases that evolve based on actual, observed use and impact gauged over the next several years.

CAMPSITES PLANNED

The first phase of DEC’s proposed management plan establishes three day-use areas, one each at Chapel Pond, Henderson Lake and at Boreas Ponds Dam. Boreas Ponds Dam is within Vanderwhacker UMP revisions, which are

integrated closely with High Peaks land-use. DEC plans to establish privies at each day use area. No motorized use would be permitted in Wilderness, but hand launch areas for paddlers are proposed at Chapel Pond, Henderson Lake and at Boreas Pond. All three would be accessible for people with disabilities. A universally accessible lean-to is planned for construction at Boreas Ponds on the site that once held the Finch, Pruyn & Co. corporate lodge. Twelve primitive campsites are planned to be phased in at Boreas, as use demands over time. Five would be primitive

Saranac Lake moving closer There's still time to making a name for itself North Country SPCA

Branding meeting held, statement announced By Keith Lobdell STA FF W RITER

SARANAC LAKE | After six months of research and compiling data, the Saranac Lake Brand Study Advisory panel gave residents a first look at where they hope to go in giving the town a centralized marketing approach last week. “We have been working on developing what we call our brand statement,” said Kelly Brunette, Saranac Lake Regional Marketing Manager for ROOST. “At this point, we are not at a logo or a tagline — we are looking at how we tell people about this community, and we have found out that Saranac Lake is so much more than even residents originally thought.” The brand statement was as follows: “Saranac Lake is a place that is authentically Adirondack and decidedly different. At first glance, it’s a historic village where the lakes and mountains are as accessible as they are beautiful. “A closer look reveals a downtown with an urban vibe where creative energy flows freely. Frequent events put art and music on display for travelers and residents alike, while

shops and cafes provide waypoints for people watching. “It’s all intertwined with waterways, forests and roads that roll past one scenic vista after another. This is a place where a glorious balance is struck: It’s a nature-lover’s paradise infused with bold ideas and quirky originality, all done in a way only Saranac Lake could pull off.” The study asked numerous questions of the 4,166 people — local residents, Adirondack residents, tourists who have visited Saranac Lake and tourists who have not — to complete a survey. One of the biggest key words they found was “beautiful,” along with “calm,” “relaxing,” “lake experience” and “unique activities.” They also found unanimous accolades for the area’s outdoor recreation. Burnette said the team still has work to do. “We are about halfway through the process,” she said. “It’s really important because Saranac Lake in 2018 is ready to embrace a brand that not only speaks to where we are now, but where we will be in 50 years.” Members of the Brand Study Advisor Panel include Carolyn Bonadaro, Jeremy Evans, Kathy Ford, Tim Fortune, Adam Harris, Howard Riley, Tracey Schrader, Matt Scollin, Rich Shapiro, Kareen Tyler and Katy VanAnden.

Event May 19 celebrates historic Adirondack airmail flight by Doc Goff in 1938 By Kim Dedam STA FF W RITER

KEENE| Airmail in the Adirondacks took off with a solo flight on a May afternoon 80 years ago. The bi-plane, a 1937 Aeroncaat piloted by Dr. Alphonso Goff, lifted its double wings from Marcy Field once the clouds cleared. It was one among 90 planes to fly airmail around the country on May 19, 1938, a Thursday. History tells that this day was set nationwide to celebrate the U.S. Postal Service’s 20th year of airmail delivery. Then U.S. Postmaster General James Farley, appointed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, had established National Airmail Week that year from May 15 to 21. “Although newspaper accounts of the time refer to this flight as the 20th anniversary of National Airmail Week, it was a first for the Adirondacks,” local historian Susan Doolittle of Keene Valley said in research notes. “According to the Record-Post, the bag of mail consisted of 800 letters brought from the neighboring post offices of Keene Valley, Lake Placid, AuSable Forks, Upper Jay, Jay, Elizabethtown and Lewis. “All were brought to Keene and put in one bag by Mr. Frank S. Russell, Postmaster from Keene, who dispatched and took the mail to the airport accompanied by Major Chamberlin.’” The Adirondack airmail flight event drew a crowd, among them were many area school children. “The Town of Keene was notable

for bringing its children to the airfield to witness this event. Children from the Keene school were driven to the airport in cars donated by Mrs. Hickey, Mrs. Hartson, Miss Estes and Hubert Nye. The Keene Valley school children arrived in school buses,” Doolittle said. “There were anxious moments in the morning for the large crowd gathered at the airport that day as the weather looked ‘very unfavorable.’ But the skies cleared and Dr. Goff was able to take off in his 1937 Aeroncaat at 12:57 p.m.” According to historic news reports, of the 90 pilots who participated nationwide six were women, Doolittle said. “Alma Harwood known as the Flying Grandma was New York’s female representative. Dr. Howard G. Case of Syracuse, was the only other Doctor among the New York pilots. One New York plane crashed in Lowville, but no one was injured. It completed the route later in the day.” The airmail celebration in 1938 featured several “races” to illustrate speed and efficiency proffered by airmail delivery. “Among the events organized to dramatize the flight was a race between four carrier pigeons and an Eastern Airlines flight from Washington D.C. to NYC. The pigeons landed one-half hour before the plane,” Doolittle said. “Livingston, Montana pitted a pony express of 12 horses against the plane in an 118 mile trip to Billings. It took

the horses 11 hours and 50 minutes, it took the plane 40 minutes.” While no pigeons or pony express are slated to race, a reenactment of Doc Goff’s historic flight is scheduled for the same date, May 19, 80 years hence. The commemorative gathering is also the inaugural launch of the Town of Keene Historical Society, a new organization welcoming new members young and old. The Airmail Celebration at Marcy Field on Saturday, May 19th to commemorate the first Adirondack airmail flight begins at 10:30 a.m. Local pilot Bob Rose will take off at approximately 11 a.m. in his 1949 Piper Clipper. “There will be an exhibit in the Holt House focusing on Marcy Field and its role in the life of the Town of Keene,” Doolittle said. “A table will be set up at the site where people can join the Town of Keene Historical Society and get their membership card stamped with a rubber stamp replica of the 1938 Cachet, developed by the Board of Trade. The Historical Society welcomes the loan of Marcy Field photographs and information on the Board of Trade for this event.” The Town of Keene Historical Society is sponsoring the event to honor Dr. A. R. Goff and to draw attention to Keene’s rich history. ■

STEFANIK SUPPORTS

According to the Congressional Budget Office, 1.2 million fewer people would receive benefits in 2028, two-thirds of whom would be parents with older children.

NOT LAZY

Critics of the reforms counter food stamp recipients are already working, and a tightened set of requirements further stigmatizes the poor. Stefanik is up for re-election this year and her stance has drawn sharp criticism from Katie Wilson, a small business owner from Keene who has branded herself as a working class alternative to the lawmaker. “People like Paul Ryan and Elise Stefanik don’t understand people who qualify for food stamps,” Wilson told The Sun. “They’re busy throwing multi-million dollar weddings and riding around in expensive vehicles.”

slow season, she said, and many people are often one paycheck away from turning to temporary assistance. “Laziness or unemployment doesn’t have anything to do with needing $5,000 worth of dental work, or your car suddenly breaking down and needing new tires in the winter,” Wilson said. “If we want to address poverty and a path out, we need to make sure people’s basic needs are met.” She also said the reforms were punitive because if people fail to meet the work requirements, they’ll be shut out of the program for a year, or three years for a second offense.

About 40,000 recipients in New York’s 21st Congressional District would be affected by the change. Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-Willsboro) supports the strengthened requirements.

Thoughts from Behind the Pressline

Watchdog or guard dog? The national media at one time in this nation’s history took great pride in being a watchdog for its By Dan Alexander citizens. • PUBLISHER • Their mission was to protect and inform. Personal preferences were instinctively and professionally put aside, and their focus was watchdogging governmental affairs on behalf of the American people. Nowadays, they seem to respond more like a guard dog who instead of guarding the property, responds more favorably to the diversionary story thrown to them by their party of choice. A good watchdog needs to understand and value what they are on watch to protect, and nothing can supersede that task. I saw a video recently of a young boy who had fallen off his bike and was knocked unconscious. Lying next to him was his pet dog. The dog was not a large nor imposing animal — just your average mongrel pet. The dog would not allow any passersby nor medical support staff get near the child. While he never bit anyone, he was overly protective, snapping and barking until the child regained consciousness. Despite the best intentions of those wishing to assist, the dog was laser-like in his single purpose, not wishing further harm to the child by keeping everyone at bay until the child let the dog know these people were there to help not hurt. Instinctively, the dog understood his role. His love for the child overshadowed everything else. Nothing mattered more to the dog, not even its own life, than the task of watching over the injured child. Sadly, both sides of our political system have manipulated the mainstream media, and it appears far too many in the media have lost focus on just who these are supposed to be protecting. Like the guard dog that chooses the juicy red T-bone diversion, they see their mission is to only feast on the juicy scandals or successes of one party over the other while placing their selected preferences over those of the nation. That process is a disservice to the nation and their profession as a whole. Perhaps in the future, this period will be looked upon and studied in schools of journalism as training for how not to conduct oneself nor the craft of good reporting. Until then, each of us must stand watch over what we choose to accept as the truth versus opinion. ■

From the Editorial Board

Diversity initiative much-needed Race is always been a third rail in American politics. So let’s talk about it. Amid the arrest of two black men at a Philadelphia Starbucks last month, the chain is engaged in deep soul-searching and will close over 8,000 stores for the day on May 29 to offer “racial-bias training” to employees. The flap is just the latest incident in the ongoing tension roiling the country stemming from ham-handed (and sometimes fatal) attempts to discriminate against people going about their everyday business. Despite being isolated, the North Country isn’t immune to national trends. Earlier this winter, a SUNY Plattsburgh student posted a racist message on social media, leading to protests and policy changes at the college. The fallout also led to pained community discussions in Keene, the hometown of the student who posted the message. As the aftermath rippled across the region, people of color shared their own stories of discrimination and discomfort in the North Country, which is overwhelmingly white — up to 90 percent in some communities. And at 43, the median age of Adirondack Park residents is eight years older than in the rest of the state, according to the 2014 Adirondack Park Regional Assessment. The same report reveals the Adirondacks is on track to become the oldest region in

the entire country if current trends continue. As the rest of the country becomes increasingly diverse, we have to question if this overall lack of diversity is putting us at a competitive disadvantage. There are arguments both for and against the role of cultural diversity in promoting economic development. By some metrics, diversity plays a key role in growth because areas friendly to different races, religions, cultures and lifestyles provide a fertile and welcome area to relocate. Alternatively, one could argue areas that are already diverse tend to attract similar populations because they’re already rich cultural environments. A new group called Adirondack Diversity Solutions aims to probe some of these questions. The organization, which grew out of the similarly named Adirondack Diversity Initiative, is calling on Gov. Andrew Cuomo to require all state employees and contractors to complete racial bias and inclusion training. They’ve also extended the invite to frontline tourism service professionals. While we usually balk at pledges, we think this is a great idea and support these efforts. Adirondack Diversity Solutions is correct when they acknowledge we tend to harbor unconscious biases whether we realize it or not. But even if unintended, they could mean everything to a person of color or another nationality — a stray glance, an action, a look.

Essex deserves praise for storm relief efforts

To the Editor: I’d like to commend and thank all the good Samaritans in Essex who looked out for and assisted neighbors during the power outage weekend. Special thanks go to Craig Jackson, fire chief, and his father Ron Jackson, town supervisor, for personally checking on many in the community to see if they needed assistance. Their concern and outreach are greatly appreciated. Many thanks to them and all who helped others this past weekend. Maureen Ecclesine, Essex ■

Thurman super responds to lawyer termination

To the Editor: Town board meetings are supposed to be for conducting town business. Thurman residents have expressed concern, disapproval and disgust over the 2018 Thurman Town Board meetings. They have approached me with questions regarding what can be done about the inappropriate actions of a particular board member whose behavior is having a negative effect on the town. They have also given suggestions and advice ranging from enforcing Roberts Rules of Order to removal of the board member from the meeting. When New York state made the rules and laws for town boards, they assumed people in town government would be reasonable, rational people that have respect for themselves, others and their town. Therefore there is no section in law that deals with how to handle

Something else. While perhaps benign, these signals could squash plans of those seeking to revisit, relocate or otherwise invest in the community. This isn’t a matter of building some type of liberal utopia, but seeks to answer an existential question facing the Adirondacks. Survival. We need to attract people to maintain school enrollment and fill workforce gaps. And we cannot do it without importing people. Adirondack Diversity Solutions has also called for business owners and not-for-profits to follow the state’s potential example by “executing both a workplace climate survey, along with developing a diversity and inclusion strategic plan that outlines how their organization will expand the reach of its mission, broaden its talent pool and appeal to new markets and communities.” On that, we disagree: While the intentions are good, it would ultimately act as an unfunded mandate on small businesses, as well as an unnecessary intrusion into the private sector. However, that doesn’t mean that small businesses can’t benefit from these initiatives somehow. Diversity is our nation’s biggest strength. We should embrace it — especially here in the North Country. — The Sun Editorial Board ■

inappropriate and irrational behavior of a board member. Moreover unreasonable people cannot be reasoned with and people who have no respect for themselves cannot be expected to show respect and consideration for others. For the time being, we (Thurman) have to live with what we’ve got. There is nothing that can be done to bring an out of control board member to order. Town law also deals with voting. Majority rules, period. On a five-member board, three votes is a majority. In recent months, three Thurman Town Board members have made unwise decisions. An example of one of their unsound decisions is the firing of the town attorney, appointed since 2009. The attorney legally could not and morally would not fulfill the unethical demands of Councilwoman Gail Seaman. Therefore she, along with Needham and Ackley, fired him. It is unfortunate, but it is their right to do so. For the time being, we have to live with whatever they decide. It is a sad time for Thurman but we will get through it. Cynthia R. Hyde, Thurman Supervisor ■

» Letters Cont. from pg. 6

While the public health benefits of raising the purchase age are clear, it still has ramifications for those under 21 who already smoke. Should this law take effect, there are a number of local organizations and agencies in Essex County with staff dedicated to providing tobacco cessation counseling, including Adirondack Health, Essex County Mental Health, Hudson Headwaters Health Network, Mental Health Association of Essex County, St. Joseph’s Rehabilitation Services, and UVM Elizabethtown Community Hospital.

If you or someone you know are among those who would be affected by this proposal, the North Country Health Heart Network wants you to know that there are programs and services to help you quit. Last year, the Institute of Medicine estimated that raising the age to 21 would reduce the number of smokers nationwide by 12 percent. Research by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows 90 percent of smokers started before turning 19. » Broadband Cont. from pg. 1 “A large amount of our tax dollars have gone to a program that has not achieved its advertised goals and we must find out why,” Ortt said. More than half of the locations in the third and final round of grant awards announced by Gov. Andrew Cuomo in Plattsburgh in January will be served by satellite. Hughes Network Systems, a Germantown, Maryland-based provider, received $15.4 million in state subsidies from the state Broadband Program Office (BPO) to offer service to nearly 76,000 addresses, including much of Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties. But Ortt believes satellite service doesn’t constitute coverage, and those who will actually receive broadband won’t receive it until 2020. The lawmaker also criticized the governor for taking what he said were premature victory laps across the state. “If you’ve been listening to the governor, you’d believe this program has been a massive success,” Ortt wrote in a letter to Sen. Terrence Murphy, the committee’s chairman. “Perhaps he’s misinformed — or perhaps he’s out of touch with upstate New York — but through conversations with countless constituents, telecommunications experts and local officials, one thing has become clear: this ‘mission accomplished’ attitude couldn’t be more wrong.”

BILLION DOLLAR EFFORT

Upon the program’s launch in 2015, 30 percent of New Yorkers lacked access to broadband. The state pledged $500 million in subsidies, and dispatched newly elected Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul to Lake Placid to make the announcement as her first official North Country appearance. When paired with $170 million from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and investments from telecommunications providers, total spending is expected to top $1 billion. Work continues around the state and the full $500 million commitment has not yet been disbursed. But all funds have been committed to projects after the final round of grant awards, which amounted to $225.5 million statewide. In addition to the probe request, Ortt has introduced legislation that would require yearly financial reports from the BPO documenting how any new funding is spent. This legislation would be retroactive, requiring a detailed report on what and where the initial $670 million was used. “The program has yet to meet its goal of connecting every New Yorker and it lacks the safeguards of detailed reporting, which would allow us to hold the (BPO) responsible for the initiative’s current status,” said Ortt. “The public has the right to know how and where their hard-earned tax dollars are being spent, and in the interest of accountability and transparency, this legislation would help do that.” The bill has been advanced to the Senate Finance Committee, where Ortt hopes the legislation will be voted on and moved to the floor in time to be passed before the end of the session in June.

SPECTRUM CLASH

Empire State Development (ESD), which oversees the BPO, has punched back against Ortt’s accusations. “While Sen. Ortt is no stranger to political grandstanding, he’s clearly unfamiliar with the facts re-

garding our broadband efforts,” said Jason Conwall, a spokesman for ESD. “The New NY Broadband Program is not only the largest and most ambitious of its kind in the country, but also one of the most transparent economic development initiatives you will find anywhere, with all projects prominently displayed on our website and a broadband availability map showing current coverage and commitments.” The potential probe complicates an already contentious broadband landscape in the Empire State. The state program runs parallel to expansion efforts by Spectrum, who agreed to expand broadband to 145,000 locations statewide by 2020, many of them in rural areas, as part of their merger agreement with Time Warner. But Spectrum, too, has been in the spotlight as the state Public Service Commission is attempting to force the provider to pay $1 million for falling behind their expansion agreement. It’s a clash that may escalate, as the governor’s office warned last week the provider’s ability to operate in New York City may be in jeopardy. “The governor believes it is essential that corporations doing business with the state uphold their commitments, and we will not tolerate abusive corporate practices or a failure to deliver service to the people,” said Dani Lever, press secretary, last week. “Large and powerful companies will be held to the same standard as all other businesses in New York,” Lever said. “The Spectrum franchise is not a matter of right, but is a license with legal obligations and if those are not fulfilled, that license should be revoked.” State Sen. Betty Little (R-Queensbury) agrees. “Spectrum needs to make good on their promise of connecting homes and do it faster than they have been,” Little told The Sun on Wednesday. “The public has a right to know where things stand and what the plan is for those areas that remain unserved. Conwall said Ortt appears to be conflating Charter’s build-out commitments and timeline with those for the New NY Broadband Program.” “Our goal has always been providing access by the end of 2018, while Charter’s deadline is 2020,” Conwall said. “As he is likely aware, most of the senator’s district is served by Charter. The state has not been satisfied with Charter’s buildout — to the extent that it recently fined the company and initiated an investigation. “While the state’s broadband initiative remains on track, we are also focused on ensuring Charter meets its commitments to New Yorkers.” The BPO and Spectrum have not made details on the expansion areas public, citing their proprietary nature. But numerous locations in Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties stand to be served. Spectrum says they are complying with both the merger and the New York City franchise agreements. “Charter is bringing more broadband to more people across New York state. We exceeded our last buildout commitment by thousands of homes and businesses,” Lara Pritchard, a Charter Spectrum spokeswoman, told The Sun on Wednesday. “We’ve also raised our speeds to deliver faster broadband statewide. We are in full compliance with our merger order and the New York City franchise, and we will fight these baseless actions vigorously.” ■ — This story has been abridged for print.

Guest viewpoint

Stable coyote packs benefit farms and communities By Carly Summers GUEST COLUMNIST

to prey on livestock. The more we can encourage our neighbors to respect coyote packs and resist shooting them, the easier it will be to establish and maintain peaceful cohabitation with coyotes. We really don’t have a choice. Killing coyotes doesn’t work. Not only this, peaceful coyotes in your midst who kill rodents have important benefits for your herd. Livestock herds suffer from the increased tick pressure resulting from predator eradication, just like we do. Coyotes keep rodent populations down around your farm, providing an irreplaceable service to you. Unlike predators, rodents also consume a surprising quantity of forage, competing for the food source of your herds. Knowing all this, perhaps now you are willing to give the coyotes a chance. But you are still worried and need to know what to do if one of the coyotes fleeing a destabilized territory desperately attacks your herd. First, remember that if you are lucky enough to have a stable pack around your farm, it will actually protect you from other coyotes. Yet another reason you should treasure your stable pack. Local farmers and coyote researchers also swear by guardian animals. Whether you choose llamas, alpacas, donkeys or guard dogs (Project Coyote has useful resources about this subject), guardian animals are highly effective at deterring predators of all sorts— even ravens that attack from above. Also important: make sure to check the health of your livestock frequently, taking care of sick and weak members and removing carcasses promptly. As you can imagine, sick and weak members, or carrion, can attract predators who otherwise would not approach healthy livestock. For those of you who love coyotes and happen to sneak them treats with the hope you can glimpse one in your yard: please resist the urge. Coyotes need to rely on wild prey and learn to avoid, not approach, humans. If a coyote is exploring too near your farm, try hazing: actively scaring the coyote away by shouting, waving your arms, and even throwing objects in its direction. Coyotes are keystone creatures in the ecosystem. We benefit just as much from them living in stable, healthy packs as does the rest of our environment. Hopefully this little ecology lesson will inspire you to envision coyotes in a new, positive light the next time you hear a pack singing. Interested in learning more about predator-farm and predator-community relations? Contact Carly at cfs82@cornell.edu ■

Coyotes help farms? Can this be true? What about the converse: killing coyotes hurts farms. Yes. Both true, albeit, perhaps surprising, statements. I think many of us get the impression that since coyote populations seem to be doing well, coyote shooting tournaments or occasional hunting can’t hurt the coyotes. However, killing coyotes does hurt farms. Here’s why: Coyotes live in socially-complex packs where members teach each other and play specific roles. Coyotes mate for life and are monogamous. When coyote packs are stable, coyotes hunt wild prey and teach their young to hunt wild prey. They settle into their territory and learn the patterns and habits of their wild prey, and their diet consists largely of rodents. They do not risk encounters on farms to kill livestock when their natural prey surrounds them in a familiar territory. Stable packs also defend their territory, ensuring that stray (unstable) coyotes stay away; this also helps limit the coyote population in your area, as stable packs naturally self-regulate to maintain lower populations that they can easily feed. When we shoot any member of the coyote pack, the pack is destabilized. This results in several outcomes that create problems for our farms (and neighborhoods where perhaps your small pet becomes an easy target for a hungry, afraid refugee). The coyote pack disperses, causing the territory to dissolve. Fearful, desperate coyotes will roam land unfamiliar to them where they do not have a grasp on the wild prey habitat. The coyotes, knowing the danger that exists in hunting livestock on farms, will nevertheless be driven by hunger to kill obvious prey, like sheep, as they cannot establish a stable territory in which to hunt wild prey. Ironically for us, but logical for the pack, as soon as we start shooting coyotes, they breed more and have larger litters. For now, living in the Adirondack Park where some coyote packs can find stable, unthreatened territories, we still have essential members of stable packs present to teach their young how to hunt wild prey and prefer it. However, it is of utmost importance that farmers understand the ecology of coyote behavior and how hunting coyotes drives them —Carly Summers serves as the ag educator at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Westport

DEC relocates parking at Lake Flower Boat Launch

Pontiac Bay clean-up underway, motorboat trailers and vehicles have to park across the street By Kim Dedam STA FF W RITER

SARANAC LAKE | Boaters pulling trailers will find parking accommodations have moved for access to Lake Flower boat launch. Designated spots are across the street at the former Nonna Fina restaurant. The state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) last week closed the spacious parking lot adjoining the downtown park as they begin cleanup of sludge in Pontiac Bay. The boat launch and ramp remain open. But the lot adjacent to Pontiac Bay is needed

for dewatering and transfer operations, equipment staging, and other activities related to superfund site cleanup in Lake Flower this summer and fall. Toxins found in Pontiac Bay lake bed soils are by-product of coal gasification processes used decades ago. The former village gas plant was located upriver, along Brandy Brook, which drains into the bay. DEC was initially planning to close the Lake Flower boat launch altogether this summer. “However, to make the disruption as minimal as possible, DEC is working to complete the project in one construction season, keep the boat launch open and provide alternate parking,” said DEC spokesman Dave Winchell. “The off-site parking lot is located at the former Nonna Fina’s restaurant. A limited number of parking spots have been designated for vehicles with boat trailers. “Only vehicles with boat trailers will be allowed to use the parking lot.”

ers, using the center lane for turns. The alternate parking area is about 500 feet from the launch with a pedestrian crosswalk for foot traffic. “A gravel footpath will be built between River Street and the boat ramp to give pedestrians access to the boat ramp,” Winchell said. Parking at the former Nonna Fina’s will be open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Overnight parking is prohibited. This arrangement is expected to continue from now through November, but will not disrupt Ice Palace construction next winter. In addition parking changes, DEC is recommending that paddlers and other boaters with car-top boats use nearby hand launch areas at Ampersand Bay, Lower Saranac Lake or Lake Colby. A fair amount of work activity will be ongoing at Pontiac Bay. “DEC encourages drivers and pedestrians to pay attention and follow the directions of flaggers and other workers at the boat launch site during work hours.” ■

PROJECT DETAILS

Engineering controls at DEC’s remediation project on Pontiac Bay include: Flagmen and other appropriate traffic control measures will be to control the flow of traffic on Route 86 and Lake Flower Avenue; Efforts to minimize odor, dust, and noise impacts, including but not limited to, loading trucks underneath a tent with an air filtration system; covering loads with tarps prior to leaving the site; and using odor control foam on the excavated sediment; Storm water management and erosion controls will be required to prevent runoff from the site and recontamination. For more info, visit dec.ny.gov/chemical/111997.html ■ In addition, DEC, vehicles must travel through the lot in one direction and park only in designated parking spots. Boaters will have to tie off their boats, then cross River Street to park vehicles with trail-

Au Sable Forks students give back to community Students spruce up community for second year By Keith Lobdell STA FF W RITER

AU SABLE FORKS | Very carefully, third graders were allowed to squeeze down on the nozzle as water started to spray onto each ambulance at the Au Sable Forks Volunteer Fire Department. The students were there as part of the second community spruce up day, helping to pick up trash, weed and wash the two ambulances along with a fire truck.

The third grade class wanted to help out the fire department as part of the community service day because the department helps the class by hosting their annual pancake breakfast. “The community shows up for us when we need them, so the school is working now to help the community in any way we can,” said teacher Daryl Johnson. Spruce up day organizer Kate Frederich said the community has helped out more this year and she hopes the project will continue to grow. Local help came from the Town of Jay, Town of Black Brook, Au Sable Forks EMS and Fire Department, Pray’s Family Farm, Flowering Meadow Nursery, Joy Walking Garden, Bill’s Excavating, Mountain Man Landscaping and Construction, Ward Lumber, Sam’s Club and Stewart’s, along with help

from the Spruce Up Day committee, faculty Additional projects included cleaning up school property, planting garden beds, cleaning up the Black Brook Town Hall, and town clean up.

“We wanted to do something that got the students involved in community service so we came up with the Spruce Up Day,” said AFES Principal Ginene Mason. “The kids did a great job.” ■

» Weibrecht Cont. from pg. 1 “You miss a lot at that age when you are traveling for seven, eight weeks at a time,” Weibrecht said. “Last December, I started thinking about it, but since I had put in the work I wanted to get through the Olympics. I wanted to wrap everything up the way I wanted it to be.” Weibrecht earned a bronze medal at the Vancouver Winter Olympics in 2010 before earning silver in the 2014 Sochi Olympics. “I didn’t accomplish everything I wanted, but it was a great experience and I leave the sport with no regrets,” he said. While no longer racing, Weibrecht said he would like to work with the youth in the sport through private lessons and through the New York Ski Education Foundation (NYSEF), where he got his start in the sport. “I started at NYSEF when I was five,” he said. “Diann Roffe had just won her gold

medal when I was there and that was a big influence. Having gotten that NYSEF support, I would like to come full circle with that and give back as much as I can.” Now retired, Weibrecht will head back to school at Dartmouth College, where he hopes to complete his Environmental Science degree starting in the fall. He will also be working more with the Mirror Lake Inn, which is the family business in Lake Placid, owned by parents, Ed and Lisa Weibrecht. He also hopes to follow another one of his passions. “I just started to work on getting my fishing, hiking, camping and water sports guiding licenses,” he said. Weibrecht added the one thing he will miss the least is the traveling. “Even from a young age, I hated leaving home to stay in a hotel room for seven-toeight weeks,” he said. “I love being here.” ■

You can be the world’s most eloquent speaker, having a mastery of the human language and complex words to be able to deliver and drive any subject home to an audience. But without feeling, you can lose people. By Keith Lobdell Last week, I watched as a speaker put • STA FF W RITER • passion into his words. By the end of the night, he did not just have everyone on the edge of their seats: he had them smiling, intently listening and, in some cases, furthering their commitment to change. This person is Richard Jensen. Jensen was at the Strand Theater in Plattsburgh last week to talk about his road from rock bottom. He was addicted to painkillers, opiates, hard drugs and more. He was in prison when he lost his mother and decided to turn his life around. He spoke about the time he had not only robbed from himself, but from his kids and family members. He spoke about working very hard to earn back the trust of his children to the point where they would call him daddy again. He talked about starting over from the absolute bottom until he got to where he is now. It was similar to four months ago when former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf came to SUNY Plattsburgh to talk about his battles with addiction. Both were put on by Substance Abuse Prevention and Recovery of Clinton County, and both were about not only overcoming the pitfalls, but trying to avoid them. Each presentation was well-received by audience members. But there was a big difference with Jensen, and that was not in the presentation. It came afterwards, when it was time for the Q&A portion of the program. One recovering addict would tell their story and ask what Jensen would or did do when facing the same or similar situations. Then another. And another. One asked about how she could keep her child out of a cycle that started with her parents and continued to here. It was the one thing she does not want to hand down to her child, and she was afraid it had already happened. Another was a high school girl asking not for herself, but how to help a friend get onto the recovery path instead of the addiction one. Each time, Jensen listened. He thanked each person and did his best to answer, at times not being afraid to say, “I don’t know the answer for you, but it’s something we need to have people talking about.” It was powerful, inspiring and uplifting to see all these people not only coming together, but healing together with no judgments or scorn being cast their way. Just talking it out, trying to do their best the only way they can. One day at a time, one hour at a time, one discussion at a time. Hopefully, we can all show the same empathy when needed. ■

Willsboro Central super search narrows Field to replace Stephen Broadwell is down to three candidates By Keith Lobdell STA FF W RITER

WILLSBORO | The Willsboro Central School Board of Education has narrowed the field of candidates being interviewed to replace Superintendent Stephen Broadwell next school year. Board of Education President Phylis Klein announced last week there are now three finalists for the job, down from a list of five issued a week prior. Current Peru Principal Matt Slattery, Beekmantown Principal Justin Gardner and Jefferson Central Superintendent Brian Corey each made the Willsboro short list and will now return for another round of interviews, which will be

Justin Gardner Matt Slattery conducted by the board and a stakeholders committee of faculty and residents from the school district. The meetings are scheduled to take place Wednesday, May 16. Slattery is the current 3-6 principal at Peru Elementary School, while Gardner serves as Beekmantown’s high school principal.

Brian Corey Corey is the superintendent at Jefferson Central School in Jefferson, Schoharie County, a district with an enrollment of about 225 kids, according to U.S. News. The board recently said it was hopeful they could have a successor named by the end of the month. Broadwell will retire effective July 1. ■

Essex County pitched on proposed health care consortium Coalition would negotiate with health care providers to lower costs By Keith Lobdell STA FF W RITER

ELIZABETHTOWN | A coalition of local mental health providers is coming together in an attempt to lower the price of health insurance while improving the quality of service. North Country Behavioral Healthcare Network Executive Director Barry Brogan presented the idea of the Independent Providers Association (IPA) program to members of the Essex County Human Services Committee on Monday. Brogan said the IPA would be a diverse group of providers partnering together to improve the health and wellness of local residents served through coordinated and primary care services. “There are requirements for getting into the IPA and staying in the IPA,” said Brogan. “The IPA would then go and work together and negotiate with the health care providers.” Brogan said the collaborative group would be able to lower costs for care while improving quality. “We do not want to just see that the patient had a visit,

but we want to see how productive was the visit and if it was done in a way where the outcomes are positive,” Brogan said. Essex County Attorney Dan Manning expressed concerns over the pitch, citing reservations over “socialized medicine.” “It seems like we are focusing more on costs more than care,” Manning said. “Is the care going to suffer because we want to meet certain measures?” “I would call it bringing health care to the local level and letting the local officials and local doctors,” Brogan responded. Other lawmakers also questioned the proposal. “It seems to me the insurance company is setting the judgment on the services,” said Essex Supervisor Ron Jackson. “If they think we don’t deserve coverage, they get to say so.” Brogan said that was not the case. “We are going to know the metric and be able to hold them accountable,” he said. “If we exceed the metric, then we can tell them we need our bonus.” Brogan said the group would include Citizens Advocates, Behavioral Health Services North, Champlain Valley Family Center, St. Joseph’s, United Helpers, Conifer Park, Warren/Washington AMH, Clinton County Mental Health, Essex County Mental Health, St. Lawrence County Mental Health, Community Connections, Lakeside House, MHA of Essex, Family’s First and North Country Freedom Homes. The program would be started thanks to a state grant of
