County VETS HONORED AT departments WHITEFACE DEDICATION still concerned Annual event popular with locals and tourists alike over taxi program By Kim Dedam STA FF W RITER

ELIZABETHTOWN | County agencies are wondering aloud how patients and clients can be transported following a sting that took down Medicaid-funded taxi agencies last month. “We have no clue if the new drivers the state has put in place are any different than the old drivers,” said Department of Social Services Director Mike Mascarenas. “It would be great if our drivers were preferred, but the state treats our drivers just like any other taxi service.” » Taxi Cont. on pg. 9

Elizabethtown native sails in Arctic for navy submarine mission ELCS grad Joseph Dedam traversed treacherous 7,000 miles in training exercise

ELIZABETHTOWN | A 2014 Elizabethtown-Lewis Central High School graduate and Elizabethtown native recently took part in a unique Navy mission at the top of the world aboard one of the world’s most advanced nuclear powered fast attack submarines, USS Hartford (SSN 768). Navy Fireman Joseph S. Dedam is a machinist’s mate serving aboard one of 40 Los Angeles-class submarines in the U.S. Navy. Hartford is one of two U.S. submarines that participated in the Navy’s biennial Ice Exercise (ICEX) above the Arctic Circle. The ICEX is designed to give submariners an opportunity to train and maintain readiness in the unique, ice covered waters of the Arctic Ocean. As a machinist’s mate, Dedam is a mechanic that specializes in both weapons and force protection. He also assists in driving the submarine. “I really enjoy the ports in foreign countries and the uncanny ability to deal with stress that a submarine tour gives you,”Dedam said. The Hartford sailors who participated in ICEX transited 7,000 miles through icebergs and frigid water to reach the exercise location in the Beaufort Sea. Navigating Arctic waters is no easy feat because of constant salinity and cold water changes, and the ice above makes surfacing a complicated task. During the five week ICEX, participants conducted multiple Arctic transits, surfaced near the North Pole, collected scientific data and learned from multiple training evolutions. The sailors practiced key skills and tested new Navy technology, tactics and procedures (TTPs) that will ensure that, not only Hartford can operate in the Arctic, but that other submarines and TTP developers in the force learn from their experience and feedback.

During the exercise, Dedam had the opportunity to be a primary planesman during ice ops. Hartford, with a crew of 142 sailors, is 360 feet long and weighs approximately 6,900 tons. A nuclear powered propulsion system helps push the submarine through the water at nearly 30 mph. Attack submarines are designed to hunt down and destroy enemy submarines and surface ships; strike targets ashore with cruise missiles; carry and deliver Navy SEALs; carry out intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions and engage in mine warfare. Dedam’s proudest accomplishment was the opportunity to be a primary planesman during ice ops.

Submariners are some of the most highly trained and skilled people in the Navy. The training is highly technical and each crew has to be able to operate, maintain and repair every system or piece of equipment on board. Regardless of their specialty, everyone also has to learn how everything on the ship works and how to respond in emergencies to become “qualified in submarines” and earn the right to wear the coveted gold or silver dolphins on their uniform. When asked why he joined the military, Dedam said, “To get a chance to see more of the world, have the Navy pay for school and serve my country for at least one term.” Dedam’s hobbies include playing music and snowboarding. His goal is to pursue a career in law enforcement. ■

» Dedication Cont. from pg. 1 “It has become a tradition to, each year in June, hold a Memorial Service here, weather permitting,” Essex County American Legion Adjutant Newman Tryon said in remarks at the highway complex rededication on Sunday. With an invocation met by Melissa Hodgson’s soaring rendition of the Star Spangled Banner, the tribute was renewed by the county legion. Elizabethtown and Lewis American Legion members formed the core of color guard and gun salute brigades. “Help us to remember, with reverence, the valor and devotion of our departed comrades,” Tryon said as a crowd of veterans and tourists gathered. “Not only those whose bodies consecrate our country’s soil, but also those who sleep beyond the seas, and others whose resting places will not be known until that last day... teach us to honor them by ever cherishing the ideals for which they fought.” Tryon recalled the efforts, then and now, that built the mountain memorial. In 1929, work began after years of organization and planning. It was to be a construction crew primarily of veterans with an eternal flame placed at the top. Not all of the plans were fulfilled. But the road was formally dedicated in 1935 by then President Franklin D. Roosevelt to veterans of World War I. The masonry of the mountaintop castle, its stone summit stairway and the elevator were designed and built to with a pinnacle viewing hut atop Whiteface. The elevator makes it accessible to nearly everyone. In 1952, the Essex County American Legion voted to make the highway a memorial to vet-

erans of all wars, Tryon said of the history.


Wilmington Supervisor Randy Preston said investment in renovations and restoration through recent years helped preserve this treasure. “We’re very thankful to Gov. Andrew Cuomo for repairs to the highway and to the elevator,” Preston said at the ceremony. “It means a lot to these vets here today. I want to welcome everyone here today, and I especially want to thank you veterans who showed up.” After decades of traffic and very little upkeep,

Shortly after the rededication to veterans of all wars at Whiteface Veterans Memorial Highway, a streak of rainbow clouds, also called a “fire rainbow,” appeared above the mountain castle. A rare phenomenon, it is caused by sunlight refracting through ice crystals of high, thin clouds in the atmosphere. Photos by Kim Dedam Assemblyman Dan Stec (R-Queensbury) Preston worked tenaciously alongside regional tourism and state agency leaders in 2012 to also spoke at the rededication on Sunday and draw attention to immense disrepair. In 2013, Gov. Andrew Cuomo allocated $12 million of New York Works funding to resurface the roadway and masonry of the highway’s drainage systems. Restoration of the road was completed in 2015.

expressed the importance of upkeep here. A U.S. Navy veteran, Stec said the castle at Whiteface, at the top of the highway, was a fitting place to remember and thank veterans. “If you’re going to name something and show respect for veterans, you’ve got to take care of it.” The work at the castle is not done, Preston pointed out. Several cracks in mortar are evident on several fascades. And steel manufacturing of parts of the elevator is still a work in progress. “It’s all stainless steel,” Preston said of the mechanical structures that are being built now. Work on the new elevator is slated to be complete by fall 2019, Preston said. ■ — This story has been abridged for print. To read this story in its entirety, visit

Eva Silverling Eaton

Robert K. Baafi II, Hudson D. Jahaly and Olivia G. Jahaly; and many nephews and nieces. She grew up in Brooklyn and attended Pratt Institute, receiving her Bachelor of Science in 1944, while working her way through school, including at the 1939 World’s Fair in New York. In 1947, Eva completed her Master of Science from Cornell University. Her thesis was considered an early case for the impact of sugars on diet. It was at Cornell where she met the love of her life, Ham. Their first date was taking a row boat on Cayuga Lake where Ham reported Eve did all the rowing. They married in 1946. She followed her husband to the University of Connecticut but because of nepotism rules, she was unable to be employed there. She attended Willimantic State Teachers College (now Eastern Connecticut State University) to become a certified teacher. After having three children and completing her course work, Eva began her twenty-two year career as an elementary school teacher in the Town of Mansfield, retiring in 1981. A devoted mother, her reach went beyond her family. She was dedicated to her church and was a Girl Scout leader for two decades. When she retired, she wrote that her life had been touched by more than 500 students. Those students were in turn touched by her dedication and passion for teaching. In her retirement years, she spent her summers with Ham and

her family on Lake Champlain in Willsboro. During this time, she continued her commitment to the First Church of Christ, Mansfield and in the summers the Willsboro Congregational Church, where she baked the communion bread. Eva cared for many friends during their illness and senior years and cared for Ham as he battled Parkinson’s disease and loss of vision. Some parishioners said she was an angel on earth because of her kindness, caring and generosity. She loved cooking for family gatherings and neighbors. A favorite pastime was knitting prayer shawls for the sick and dying and baby sweaters for care packages. For the last two and one-half years she was served by a great care team at the Mansfield Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation. Her family is forever grateful for their professional and loving care. A memorial service will be held Wednesday, July 25 at 3 p.m. at the First Church of Christ in Mansfield Center located at the intersection of Connecticut routes 195 and 89.

bords were annually anticipated events, always bringing her family together around the table. She had a further passion for gardening. As she spent many hours working on her window boxes and garden beds in Keene, her horticulture skills came to life. June had a deep appreciation for music, especially classical and operatic compositions. She loved reading, cats, nurses, her Swedish heritage, her evening Scotch and her grandchildren. She was smart, witty and had a wicked sense of humor, something she proudly never lost. June leaves behind two children, Karen Evans and Larry Evans and eight grandchildren, Gregory Kohn, Jocelyn Evans, Matthew Evans, Kierstin Kohn, Kiera Evans, Max Kohn, Addie Evans, and Jesse Evans, and her first great-grandchild Eliza. She also leaves behind her son-inlaw Russ Kohn and good friend Sarah Kohn (Russ’ Mom), her precious cat Annie, along with many others who loved her.

KEENE | June Astrid Evans, age 90, passed away on April 29, 2018 in Hopewell Junction. June was born on February 1, 1928 in Brooklyn to LeRoy and Inez (Fagergren) Madison. She married Leonard (Lenny) Evans on May 30, 1948 and resided in Franklin Square until settling permanently into their beloved home in Keene in 1990. June moved to The Fountains at Millbrook in 2010. Her family would like to thank everyone at The Fountains for their care and patience while she was a resident. June worked at Adelphi University as assistant to the dean of the school of nursing, also obtaining a B.A. degree, most likely with a perfect 4.0 average. She was a member of the prestigious Oratorio Society and sang multiple times at Carnegie Hall. June loved the Adirondacks. Two weeks every summer were dedicated to camping at Rollins Pond. Apparently contagious, her love for the Adirondacks created a cherished place for the entire family. June was an excellent cook and loved spending time in the kitchen; her hospitality and her Swedish meatballs will be remembered by all that came to her door. Any holiday was an excuse to cook, gather the family and celebrate. June’s Thanksgiving dinners and Christmas Eve smörgås-

Thoughts from Behind the Pressline

A deceptive master plan A thought crossed my mind the other day after listening to the many condemnations of President Trump. By Dan Alexander Just think about the • PUBLISHER • extreme reactions we’ve seen since becoming president. Calls for impeachment, negative press coverage from nearly every corner, late night humorists begging for a good old recession and entertainers cheering profanity-laced insults. Now to the other end of the spectrum with historic accomplishments in regulation rollbacks and unemployment lows, a booming economy, and packed town hall meetings, while ISIS and beheadings have all but vanished. Call me nuts, but something doesn’t add up. Presidential politics have always been a polite slight-of-the-hand facade, mixed with lots of spin, pomp and circumstance. Consider this for just a minute: What if there is just too much pessimism highlighting his supposed erratic behavior from this once highly acclaimed, successful entrepreneur? Going through the traditional presidential motions in recent times hasn’t done much for the country. No one fears us. We’ve become a paper tiger with a do-nothing Congress and red lines that mean little from the chief executive’s office. The current White House resident gets little to no credit for the many accomplishments done in record time, and no one wants to talk about his approval record now on par with Presidents Reagan and Obama at the same point in their presidencies. As crazy as it sounds, what if all this hoopla is a well-choreographed, covert strategy? Heck, even if it isn’t a well-designed plan, it does seem to be working to perfection. The U.S is no longer seen as an accommodating rich uncle. World leaders seem a little disoriented. Our trade imbalance, immigration and a multitude of other international issues could be resolved when we are not so easy to read, and he doesn’t back down from political heat or poor publicity. An unpredictable, name calling, counter punching, tweeting businessman with no political experience just had his first sit down with the Hermit Kingdom chairman, which in itself was never even a remote possibility a mere few months ago when “Little Rocket Man” was lobbing nukes over Japan and threatening to send them our way. Who knows, our neighbors to the north might just be in on the whole crazy scheme, playing their part at last weekend’s G-7 event. Maybe someday they’ll let us in on the plan, but for now, so long as we keep moving the agenda forward, let’s play along. Perceived mayhem might be a far better persuader than artificial saber rattling. ■

The Sun Editorial

County erred in snubbing Tobacco 21 Essex County lawmakers narrowly snuffed out raising the legal age to purchase tobacco products in the county from 18 to 21 years old last week. Lawmakers opposed to the measure cited open enforcement questions and the economic impact on retailers, particularly those near the Warren County line. We recognize the merits of those arguments. But lawmakers ultimately decided to endorse a decision that will be deleterious for their constituents in the long run. Smoking kills people and drives up health care costs. The Essex County Board of Supervisors owns that now. Tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable death and disease in the U.S., killing a half-million Americans every year, including 28,000 New Yorkers. From an economic standpoint, the habit costs $170 billion in health care expenditures nationwide, with direct and indirect losses to the U.S. economy

totaling $330 billion. Here in New York state, tobacco-related health care costs total $10.4 billion, according to the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids. Medicaid, which covers one-third of state residents, picks up $6.62 billion of those costs. How can lawmakers claim to be fiscally conservative when they had a choice to curb a habit that will ultimately drive up costs for their constituents? Costs to treat conditions like diabetes and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease will boomerang back to local taxpayers, who will be required to foot the tab. The share shouldered by state taxpayers will likely rise as the White House and Republican-controlled Congress continues to chip away at Obamacare, leading to sustained marketplace destabilization and rising health care costs. Local lawmaker obstinance comes when

U.S. has spending priorities mixed up

To the Editor: I sit here watching and reading about the many billions of our tax dollars that flow to the illegal alien and drug problem involving the Mexican border, the unknown millions Gov. Andy Cuomo’s Medicaid taxi service has allowed to be stolen, billions for state environmental causes, and I think perhaps this is why we have so little to help American senior citizens survive. In 2016, the federal government gave Mexico $160 million in foreign aid, this year $87 million. We’ve sent cash for many years. Why are we borrowing money (deficit spending) for a country that does nothing to protect our common border from the influx of illegal aliens and drugs? Obama sent $1.7 billion in cash to terror sponsoring Iran in the middle of the night. Where did it come from and who authorized it? I fear we’ve only seen the tip of the iceberg regarding Andy’s Medicaid taxi fraud scheme and free college plan which will likely include illegal aliens. Recently our family spent five months seeking financial assistance to help support a brave 94 year old female American World War 2 veteran. Despite numerous referrals to various agencies, many hours of meetings and phone calls with these agencies, we came away with very little help. While all expressed a goal of helping the elderly remain in their homes rather than nursing homes, few assured anything. Hospice care and dementia programs were the exceptions and helped. Between the cost of maintaining the various agencies, the cost to absorb illegal aliens and drugs, and the cost of waste and

the Tobacco 21 movement is gaining steam across the state, with Ulster County joining Orange, Westchester, Albany and New York City as localities that have already raised the minimum age of purchase. All school districts in Essex County have also passed measures of support. Seventy-five percent of adults nationwide support raising the age, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, including 70 percent of smokers themselves. Ninety-five percent of smokers begin before the age of 21, so raising the age to stop the habit before it starts is a no brainer. All of this puts the Essex County lawmakers who voted against this measure squarely outside of the mainstream on this issue. Clinton and Warren counties haven’t yet voted on the measure. Let’s hope they err on the side of reason unlike their Essex County counterparts. — The Sun Editorial Board ■

Loss of Emerald’s felt in community

To the Editor: Ticonderoga has lost its best restaurant with the fire at the Ti Country Club! Emerald’s was, in our opinion, the best restaurant in the Ticonderoga area. Unfortunately, a fire destroyed the club building and Emerald’s, which was over the Pro Shop. Our prayers go to the four people who were injured in the explosion and subsequent fire. Thank God no lives were lost, and the patrons escaped without harm. Emerald’s will be missed by us and many friends who shared our views about the food and service. We have heard the Country Club will be rebuilt and hopefully Emerald’s will be part of the effort. Our hearts go out the workers who will suffer a loss of wages and hopefully they will gain employment until the restaurant can be rebuilt. Ticonderoga is a place of history and the Country Club is on grounds that were once a Native American village. During the French and Indian War, Lord Howe and his English soldiers fought to protect Ti from harm. During the American Revolution, Ticonderoga was made famous for supplying the cannons George Washington needed in Boston. Henry Knox, a young officer, and his men moved the cannons from Fort Ticonderoga to Boston some 300 miles in 56 days. The Americans had the high ground and fired on the British who got to their ships and sailed away. This was the first victory of our revolutionary army. We owe them thanks not only for saving our country but for putting Ticonderoga on the map. Emerald’s Restaurant has also put Ti on the map with its great menu, food and service. Just as the phoenix, Emerald’s will rise from the ashes and we will once again enjoy its hospitality. Gary Philip Guido, Ticonderoga ■ » Letters Cont. on pg. 7

Silver Bay resident calls for safety measures on hazardous road

To the Editor: Recently I returned to Silver Bay for the summer season. I am compelled to comment on a problem that has plagued Silver Bay Road for many years and is getting worse and worse. I refer to the speeding on the section of road where I live, north of the Silver Bay Inn on Oneida Bay. With the current construction of the new dining hall, traffic on the road has increased noticeably including passenger vehicles bringing workers to the site, light trucks and even large delivery trucks. Very few obey the posted 25 miles per hour speed limit. The U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration, prescribes the width of a rural, local road to be between 18 and 24 feet. The width of Silver Bay Road in front of my home is 14 feet, ostensibly making it a one lane road. The road is dangerously narrow, heavily traveled, particularly as of late, and soon to be fi lled with walkers both from this neighborhood and from the Silver Bay Inn. Especially hazardous is the blind curve in front of the Penfield Cottage. Whoever has jurisdiction over this road needs to assess the problem and consider remedies, such as reducing the speed limit, or better yet installing a series of speed bumps, or I fear a serious accident looms on the horizon. Richard H. MacDowell, Silver Bay ■ » Flowers Cont. from pg. 1 By Kim Dedam STA FF W RITER

LEWIS | Flowers and memorial boxes are missing from several cemeteries here. Tributes of flowers and memorial planters have been stolen from the Congregational Church graveyard and also from gravesites in the Deerhead Cemetery, according to town officials. “It started right before Mother’s Day when a couple of hanging planters on a grave were stolen,” Town of Lewis Supervisor Jim Monty told the Sun. “Flowers were also taken off gravesites, and two cement planter boxes were removed as well.” The cement planter boxes were each nearly two feet long. “We did report this to the sheriff ’s depart-

ment,” Monty said. The investigation is ongoing, but residents here are disgusted that anyone would remove remembrances placed lovingly at any family member’s final resting place. The historic graveyard at Deerhead, a hamlet north of town, is off of Route 9. “Someone dug up a rose bush right in front of a headstone,” Monty said. “And some flowers were also removed from graves at Deerhead.” Both graveyards are managed by the Town of Lewis, mowed and cared for throughout the year. Initial reports were called in to Town Councilwoman Lanita Canavan, who chairs the Cemetery Committee. Reports from upset family members were also made to the town office, reporting the stolen grave flowers. “From what family told me,” Canavan said via social media, “it was a yellow rose bush

A concrete planter and a fuchsia were stolen from the Lewis Cemetery from two different lots.” Monty said the thefts appear to be random and focused on flowers. No gravestones have been defaced.

“It’s just horrible. When the people call, what do you tell them? We are looking for information about who has done this,” Monty said. The most recent theft occurred in the first week of June. Monty said he has heard reports of similar thefts of flowers from the Reber Cemetery as well. “As far as I’m concerned, they’re desecrating hallowed ground,” Monty told The Sun. The town and Monty have reached out to community for help in finding the alleged thieves. In a recent public Facebook post, Monty said the town will seek restitution and community service once the perpetrators are found. “This saddens me to think someone would stoop that low. I want to personally apologize to the families that have had items stolen. I also ask that if you see something please let me know, if you know anything please, please let me know.” The investigation is ongoing. ■

Lyme disease is growing, but you can protect yourself By Dr. Thomas H. Scott GUEST COLUMNIST

As the seasons and days change from cold to warm, New Englanders are eager to get outside and enjoy the mountains, beaches, lakes and camping that makes up our well-rounded landscape. Unfortunately, another season has begun as well — tick season. Although the last thing anyone wants to think about when finally getting outside to enjoy the summer weather is menacing ticks, it’s important to educate yourself and your loved ones about tick prevention and treatment. Ticks are more active in spring, summer and fall but can be around any time the temperature is above freezing. Each year thousands of cases of Lyme disease are reported in each of the three northern New England states. As a matter of fact, Vermont and Maine have the highest rates of Lyme disease compared with any other state, while New Hampshire ranks in the top ten. Typical symptoms of Lyme disease include a rash, fever, joint pain and fatigue. Lyme disease is caused by the bacteria Borrelia burgdorferi when it is transmitted to humans through the bite from an infected deer tick. This can occur from the bite of an adult or baby (nymph) deer tick.

Due to its small size, the deer tick can often be missed during a tick check. However, if you do find one, check to see if there is a circular black spot, known as the shield, above the mouthparts. The shield does not change as the tick engorges and is one of the key factors in identifying the deer tick. The nymph deer tick is very small, about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. As the nymph’s mature into adult ticks, they are still small measuring about a fifth of an inch. Before heading outdoors to enjoy the weather, take steps to protect yourself from these small but harmful parasites. If possible, wear long pants and tuck them into your shoes, which makes it harder for the ticks to find their way onto your skin. Spray your pant legs and shoes with Permethrin or another tick spray to keep them away. Using a tick spray such as YAYA Organic Tick Ban or Deet on any exposed skin will help prevent them from attaching. After coming inside from the outdoors, check yourself and others, such as children, dogs and elders, for ticks. Our furry friends tend to be tick highways at no fault of their own. Removing ticks before they become attached is always the best way to prevent Lyme disease. If a tick does become embedded there are many ways to try and remove them. Here are the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC)

recommendations: • Use fine-tipped tweezers to grasp the tick as close to the skin’s surface as possible. • Pull upward with steady, even pressure. Don’t twist or jerk the tick; this can cause the mouthparts to break off and remain in the skin. If this happens, remove the mouth-parts with tweezers. If you are unable to remove the mouth easily with clean tweezers, leave it alone and let the skin heal. • After removing the tick, thoroughly clean the bite area and your hands with rubbing alcohol or soap and water. • Never crush a tick with your fingers. Dispose of a live tick by putting it in alcohol, placing it in a sealed bag/container, wrapping it tightly in tape or flushing it down the toilet. It’s important to perform regular checks and promptly remove attached ticks. If you’ve been bitten, closely monitor your health for possible signs and symptoms of Lyme disease. Antibiotics are available and most effective when begun early. If you experience Lyme disease symptoms, seek evaluation by a healthcare professional skilled in tick bite management and the treatment and prevention of Lyme disease. ■ — Dr. Thomas H. Scott is chief medical officer at ClearChoiceMD Urgent Care in New London, New Hampshire.

» Van Ho Cont. from pg. 5 “It is expected that evening skiing will be available from Tuesday through Saturday likely until 8 or 9 p.m., possibly to 10 p.m. on some nights.” Sensitive to light pollution against otherwise dark wilderness, ORDA is proposing lights mounted on trees where possible “at a height ranging between 15 and 30 feet. “Fixtures will generally face downward and be fitted with shields,” the UMP draft says. ORDA and DEC said the wooded areas affected by these improvements would be primarily on conservation easement lands owned by the Town of North Elba: New Ski Trails impact 9 acres; Alpine Coaster, less than 2 acres; new buildings, about one-half acre -- for a total wooded area impact on 11.5 acres. Tree cutting is proposed on less than 1 percent of the Mt. Van Ho Intensive Use Area, “and falls within the capacity of the resource to absorb the impact,” ORDA says. No rare, threatened or endangered plant species would

be affected. ORDA spokesman Jon Lundin said construction would begin when the UMP is approved, likely at the end of this summer. “There is a target launch date of Columbus Day Weekend 2018,” Lundin said. Olympic Sports Complex improvements would be paid for with capital monies appropriated to ORDA by the state. “Improvements will begin as soon as the UMP in approved and all permits are obtained. ORDA staff and design professionals are currently working on timeline and phasing,” Lundin said. ORDA says improvements to the sports facility will generate added tourism revenue and allow the venue to continue to grow as a host for world class winter sporting events. The unit management plan was last updated in 1999. The UMP is open for public comment through June 27. A final version has to be approved by the Adirondack Park Agency. ■


Public comment on proposed changes to the Mount Van Hoevenberg Unit Management Plan are being accepted through June 27. Written comments regarding impacts to state lands can be mailed to Kathy Regan, APA Deputy Director for Planning, P.O. Box 99, Ray Brook, NY 12977.

Wilmington Historical Society fundraiser planned Event slated for Saturday

WILMINGTON | The Wilmington Historical Society will host three events on Saturday to raise funds for their new building. The Wilmington Whiteface Heritage Celebration is slated for Saturday, June 16 from 11 a.m. to 5p.m. at Festival Field located at 2 Cunningham Lane in Wilmington. The event will follow the second annual Whiskey Run which begins at 9:30 a.m. The third event is a Speakeasy Soiree at Pourman’s Tap House from 8p.m. to 11p.m. Battle of Plattsburgh re-enactors and encampment, including demonstrations, marches and musket and cannon fire, will provide much of the colorful activity for the day. Music, food, heritage crafters and artisans offering unique products for sale, traditional folk art demonstrations, displays and craft

whiskey and beer tastings will be on tap. Food will be provided by Papa Duke’s BBQ and Green Goddess Foods. Local popular fiddler, Don Perkins, will be performing from 1 p.m. - 3 p.m. At 12:30 p.m. the re-enactors will lead a procession from Festival Field to the Pleasant View Cemetery for a special memorial ceremony at the graveside of Cpl. Stephen Partridge, one of the first heroes of the Battle of Plattsburgh. Author Col. David Fitz-Enz will be on hand to sign books, four of which relate to the War of 1812. Many of the activities of the Heritage Celebration focus on the area’s historically recurrent theme of whiskey. In its early days, the part of Jay that is now Wilmington had the reputation of providing good rye whiskey to the American troops as part of their daily rations during the Battle of Plattsburgh in the War of 1812.

About 100 years later, being a small, quiet northern village close to the Canadian border, Wilmington became a safe haven for bootleggers and rum runners transporting illicit spirits across the border during the Prohibition Era. Even to this day, Wilmington is home to the oldest whiskey barrel cooperage in the northeast, US Barrel. “We wanted to expand upon last year’s successful Whiskey Run and include more of our local history as an active sensory experience to connect people to their past,” said WHS President Karen Peters. Distillers will be on hand to offer tastings and an opportunity to purchase their products include Gristmill Distillers of Keene, Springbrook Hollow Farm Distillery of Queensbury, Murray’s Fools of Altona, Mountain Spirit Distilling of Plattsburgh, Albany Distilling of Albany. Blue Line Brewery of Saranac Lake and Valcour Brewery of Plattsburgh will offer tastings and sales of their craft brews.

Artisans and crafters will provide a unique shopping experience with their handcrafted items for sale ranging from rustic furniture to crocheted and knitted items to deer antler art. Visitors will be able to see how barrels are made, watch a blacksmith at his craft, learn about fly-tying, view 19th century quilting and see how to make Adirondack pack baskets and porcupine jewelry. Bucksberry Farm will be on hand to sell early greens and vegetables. Other special foods such as honey and maple syrup will be for sale. Attendees will be able to participate in raffles and purchase a commemorative beer glass with a coupon inside for a free beer at Pourman’s Tap House (limit 100). Sid Ward will sell his distinctive cutting boards, all proceeds to benefit the Wilmington Historical Society. For more info, contact Wilmington Historical Society at or ■

» Taxi Cont. from pg. 1 The fervor from the county has come since 10 medical taxi providers across the eastern Adirondacks have been implicated on federal conspiracy charges related to a sweeping Medicaid fraud scheme. Mental Health Director Terri Morse said she is concerned that while the department expands services, the people who need to use them will be left high and dry. “We will have psychiatric services at the county which we have been down on since November,” Morse said. “The Mental Health Association use to do a fair amount of transportation for patients to the services they needed. When they stopped doing that, it left a real hole for how those people were trying to get where they need to go.” In April, Morse reported 459 residents used the services provided by the mental health department. Morse said they saw a huge shift and increase in people using programs through the Medicaid taxi program and fears patient health will be impacted with the recent arrests and concerns over the program. “Mental health needs to put a satellite service in every community or we are going to have to figure out as a county how we are going to provide those transportation services to the people,” she said. “So we do have a problem in Essex County regarding this transportation and if it gets taken away then we are going to be in serious trouble.” “I firmly believe that mental health for anyone who wants it is extremely important,” said board Chairman Randy Preston. “With all that is going on in this country, mental health could be the answer,”

of a credit card skimmer on a gas pump in Keeseville recently and how he plans to keep looking for other tampering with gas pumping systems. “They found that the people who are putting these skimmers in place look for pumps that have recently been calibrated,” said Taylor. “We are going to retrace our steps to be absolutely safe.” Taylor said the County received word of a violated seal that was fixed. “It’s an annual inspection unless there is a complaint,” said Taylor on the usual procedures for inspections of the 324 gas dispensers in the county. Taylor said there has not been another skimmer found in Essex County, but a digital skimmer, which takes the message from a credit card and digitally transfers the information to a cellular device, was found in Sullivan County. “It was identical to the one I had found,” he said.


Prior to the committee meetings, the Board of Supervisors held a special meeting to extend the mortgage tax for the county, which imposes a tax of 25-cents per $100 on each remaining major fraction thereof on principal debt incurred by a mortgage on real property situate within the county until Dec. 31, 2021. The motion extends the current mortgage tax for the county, which has to be renewed every three years, much like the sales tax and occupancy tax via home rule. “This is nothing new,” said Chesterfield Supervisor Gerald Morrow. “This is just an extension of what we already do.” ■

Morse also said the Mental Health Department would be providing a case management worker at the Essex County Jail for one day each week. “If they need to be connected to other services the person will set up an appointment and we will make sure they make the appointment,” Morse said. The funding will come through a state grant and will only serve inmates from Essex County. Morse said she hopes to increase the service to a pair of days per week next year.

Our spectacular solar system By Brielle Laundree GR A DE 5

Have you ever wondered how planets were made, and what it is about them that scientists want to find out? I find planets very fascinating. Like how Saturn has more than 60 moons. One of them is Mimas. It has a huge crater on the side most likely caused by a space object and it almost split in half ! So cool! Unlike Saturn, Earth has only one moon and was formed about 4,600 million years ago. I always thought that Mercury was the hottest planet because it is the closest planet to the sun but it’s actually Venus because of its extremely thick atmosphere. Imagine having 3,000 feet of water pressure on you, that is the amount of pressure on Venus. When we’re on Earth and we see Jupiter it doesn’t look so big and when we are on Earth, Earth feels huge. You can fit 1,321 earths in Jupiter. Jupiter has 63 moons and none of Jupiter’s moons are the same! I know this seems short but 1 day on earth is 10 hours on Jupiter! What I found to be the most interesting thing about Jupiter is that one of its moons, Ganymede, is the largest moon in the solar system! It is so big that it is larger than both Mercury and Pluto.

Besides Earth, Mars is the only planet that has had a rover or a human on it. So far NASA has not managed to put a human on any other planet besides Earth but they are working on it. I love all planets but my favorite would have to be Uranus because its summer lasts, wait for it…21 years!!! But don’t get too excited, its winter also lasts 21 years. The

rings on Uranus are so faint that scientists have to use special telescopes just to see them. If you were to take a closer look to see them, you would see that Uranus’s rings are horizontal. It almost looks like it was hit by something and turned on its side. Uranus is made from gases. A gas called methane makes it look blue. Uranus can sometimes be seen from Earth. It looks like

The Dream Emoticons :-p vs. Em jis Fictional Story By Scott LaMountain GR A DE 6

It was the bottom of the ninth inning in one of the biggest baseball games of the season and I was up to bat. Jack was on third base and Benny was on first. The first pitch came, “Strike one!” shouts the umpire. “You gotta focus,” I say to my-self. Coach tells me to bunt because the game is tied with Jack on third and he’s fast but I ignore Coach. The next pitch is way over my head, “Ball one!” the umpire says. Then another pitch comes, I tell myself this is mine! Uh, but it was a curve ball and I missed it. “Strike two!” the umpire exclaims. Now I have to be careful or I could lose the game for us. The next pitch looks like a strike but it misses as the umpire says, “Ball two!” Okay, there are now two balls and two strikes, a 2-2 count. All I can think of at this moment is that I have a chance to make history and bring our team to the Little League World Series. Now I’m nervous! The next pitch is a ball so it’s a full count, three balls and two strikes. I step out of the batter’s box and take a deep breath. My coach tells me, “Just take a deep breath and relax.” I do and then square up to home plate, it’s game time! The next pitch comes, I hit it and it’s a base hit! Jack scores from third base and we win the game! This feels like a dream, all of my team-mates run to me at first base and are cheering my name. “We are going to the Little League World Series!” says Jack. After all of the excitement, I look out at the field and my teammates still celebrating and say to myself, “Man this is the best day of my life.” ■

Click. Click. Click. That’s the sound of you texting. Most people now have some type of mobile phone and usually use emojis to save time instead of writing whole sentences. You may think that emojis are just little silly faces on a screen, but emojis have a lot of history. For example, emojis were originated from emoticons. Emojis and emoticons are very different though. Emoticons are expressions using numbers and letters and punctuation marks on the keyboard. The very first emoticons were the happy face :-) and the sad face :-( and were invented by Scott Fahlman in 1982. Because of the limits on the computer and key-board many emoticons have to be read sideways. Emojis are faces, objects, and symbols. I bet you did not know that the word emoji is a combination of the Japanese words for picture (e) and character (moji), so it actually means picture character. The emoji was invented in the 1990s by Shigetaka Kurita because of the Japanese obsession with images and was first intended to attract Japanese users. “Everything was shown by text. Even the weather forecast was displayed

as ‘fine’. When I saw it, I found it difficult to understand. Japanese TV weather forecasts always included pictures or symbols to describe the weather – for example, a picture of sun meant ‘sunny’. I’d rather see a picture of the sun, instead of a text saying ‘fine’,” said Kurita in an interview ex-plaining how he came up with emojis in the first place. He and his team came up with the first 176 emojis. The first emoji they made was the heart. Apple was the first company to popularize emojis globally. In 2007, Apple wanted to try and get into the tough Japanese market so they decided to include emojis into their first iPhone. For the North Americans, the emoji keyboard was actually hidden inside the phone, hoping that North American users wouldn’t find it. Those plans didn’t work out because of determined tech-savvy people. From that point on the use of emojis spread like wildfire. What does the father of the emoticon think of this emoji craze? Scott Fahlman was quoted in the UK’s Independent saying, “I think they are ugly, and they ruin the challenge of trying to come up with a clever way to express emotions using standard keyboard characters. But perhaps that’s just because I invented the other kind.” ■

a really faint star. Uranus has at least 27 moons, including Herschel, Titania, Ariel, and Umbriel. Planets are so interesting that I could go on and on and on and on about them, but, unfortunately, I have to go. Maybe you will become an astronaut and explore the solar system someday. You never know. ■

Have you ever wondered how it would be to run prek? Well the pre-k teacher Ms. Begor enjoys it a lot. Her favorite part is the kids and the people she works with. She loves kids so she decided this job would be perfect for her! Believe it or not, when Ms. Begor was only in kindergarten, she already knew she wanted to teach pre-K. Every job has its downside, even teaching kids. Her least favorite part is if a kid is sick. She hates seeing kids not feeling their best. Even though Ms. Begor has been teaching for a long time, she had another job before this. She worked at Peru school as a teacher. Ms. Begor is glad that they started pre-k when they did because it gave her a chance to get used to the school. “I think having prek is a great idea because it gives young kids a chance to see a real school,” she ex-

plained. Have you ever wondered why they started the pre-k group? For a long time they didn’t have one, so they finally decided to start one. Mr. Hulbert says it keeps the kindergarteners focused and I agree. The kindergarteners are more focused than they were before. They have been considering starting a pre-k group for a while now. I know this because the retired teacher, Ms. Rock was the first person to think of the idea about the pre-k group. You’re probably wondering how many teachers there are and what are their names. I have the answer. There is one teacher, Ms. Begor and two teacher aids. The kids are four years old and they eat the same lunch as us. The kids start school at 8:45 a.m. and end at 2:45 p.m. ■

Protecting Through Educating By Kylee Bresett GR A DE 6

In September, I visited the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge in Wilmington, N.Y. with the Keeseville Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts. The goal of the Wildlife Refuge and Rehabilitation Center is to protect wildlife and educate the public. We were excited to learn about the animals, but also to see them in action. When we arrived, we walked into the main building. Immediately, we saw an owl and a turtle in their cages. A crow was sitting on an employee’s head. Even more impressive than that was the back wall of glass. If you looked out, you could see the wolves in their habitat. While we waited for the wolf talk to begin, we went outside and ran around the cages with the wolves. At 10:00, Steve Hall

aka “Wolf Man,” gave a talk about the wolves. He told us how he and his wife Wendy, purchased this dream property along the West Branch near the Ausable River in the early 2000s. A few years later, they were able to operate as a rehabilitation center. During the talk, Steve introduced us to a wolf named Zeebie and explained how wolves are very much like dogs. Zeebie was a full bred wolf whose parents were ac-tors. Wolves, like Zeebie, are called “keystone predators.” This means they are a dominant predator that allows the prey population to explode. Every dog in the world evolved from wolves. The Timber wolf is a canine native to the wilderness. The Arctic wolf is a subspecies of a grey wolf. Steve told us

Grey wolves from the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge. fascinating things about wolves. The best part, though, was when he told us to howl because that’s when the wolves started howling with us. From there, we walked a nice trail to see the other animals they rescued like raptors, porcupines, possums, rabbits, vultures, and foxes. While the people help the animals, the animals also help

by being there to educate the people. One of the things they are educating us on is to never abuse animals. You should never hurt an animal. Animals are just like people and would you abuse a person? People can help the Wildlife Refuge by being aware that these animals need help and to do something about it like through

a fundraiser. That would mean so much to the people, like Steve, that have worked so hard to help the animals. Steve helps all the animals at the refuge, but mainly the wolves. Stop by to see the Wildlife Refuge and see for yourself what great things this family is doing and the incredible connection they have with the animals. ■

Duffield earns triple all state at track

By Keith Lobdell SPORTS EDITOR

SYRACUSE | Cameron Duffield earned a pair of New York State Division II all state awards with his finished at the NYSPHSAA state track and field championships at Cicero-North High School in Syracuse June 8-9. Duffield, one of the top ranked hurdlers in the state heading into the meet, was able to reach the podium in both the 110 and 400 hurdles events. Duffield placed third in each of the races, while teammate Luke Maye finished fifth in the 400 hurdles, giving Section VII a pair of all-state runners in the event.

» Pig-N-Swig Cont. from pg. 1 “I see you made it to round two,” said one. And the next saw the number of animals increase to three. “Hey fellas, there’s the big bad wolf,” said one. In recent years, the sequence of the annual event has been incorporated into the design — like the two pigs taking aim at an eight-ball

Duffield earned his third all state award as a member of the Saranac 4-by-400 team as he joined Griffin Williams, Kaye, Marcus Baisi and himself placed fifth. Baisi placed seventh in both the 100 and 400 races, finishing just off the state podium. Seton Catholic’s Caleb Moore finished his high school running career by placing sixth and earning an all state nod in the 3,200 Division II race. Other results for boys included Dade Cox of Beekmantown placing 17th in the 200; Saranac placing 11th in the 4-by-100; Joe Gonzalez-Lyons of PHS placing 16th in the long jump and 14th in the triple jump; Sean Lincoln of Saranac Lake placing 11th

in the shot put; Tim Varnao of PHS placing 11th in the discus; Andrew LePage 11th in the 1,600; EKMW 14th in the 4-by-800; and Dzihad Cecunjanin placing 40th in the high jump. In the girls events, Saranac’s Rachael Woodruff was the top finisher, placing seventh in the 3,000 in Division II and 19th overall. Woodruff also joined with teammates Elise LePage, Heather Dutko and Rebeckah Hilpl to break the Section VII record in the 4-by800 to finish 9th in division and 22nd overall. The record was a 26 year-old mark that was set by Peru in 1992. The quartet shaved 16 seconds off of their season’s best time to beat the record by five seconds.

In other events, Alyssa Waters of Beekmantown finished 15th and 13th in the 100 and 200, respectively, while Edina Cecunjanin of Saranac Lake placed 14th in the 400; Grace Clark of Saranac Lake placed 11th in the 100 hurdles; Madison Grimone of Saranac Lake placing 14th in the 400 hurdles; Beekmantown placing 14th in the 4-by-100; Saranac placing 14th in the 4-by-400; Sue Sivikamuran of PHS 18th in the long jump; Ella Messner of Peru 17th in the triple jump; Kat Furman on Saranac 10th in the shot put; Maddie Hoeth of Saranac 10th in the discus; Sierra Stacy of Ticonderoga 14th in the 1,500; and Meg McDonald competing in the high jump event for the Sentinels, but unable to hit the qualifying mark. ■

Each creation is good-natured and whimsical. “The idea takes more time than actual sketch sometimes,” said Arnold. Once Arnold dashes out the design, he sends them to Loreman’s Printing for printing. “(Thom) does an excellent job bringing

my designs to life and putting them on the shirt,” Arnold said. A decade into the event, the shirts have now become collector’s items. David Gload, chairman of the Pig & Swing Committee and past Elks exalted ruler, immediately recalled the sixth installment as a favorite, which depicts a six-pack of beer called “Hog Rider’s Ale: The Cadillac of Classic Beers.”

“The wording on the six-pack and the name of the ale — everything blends together,” Gload said. “Speedy’s artwork really good on that one.” Arnold is keeping his lips sealed on this year’s shirt. To see this year’s design, just follow him to the Pig ‘N’ Swig. Keeseville Elks Lodge 10th Annual Pig ‘N’ Swig: Sunday, June 17. For more information and registration info, call 518-834-2072. ■
