Rotary Club of Champlain-Rouses Point member Lisa Roberts looks over thank you letters from fifth-grade students the club sponsored to attend the Clinton Community College science project.

ROUSES POINT — Every Thursday morning, the Rotary Club of Champlain-Rouses Point meets at Sandy’s Deli in Rouses Point to discuss their next project. The club is part of a much larger entity, Rotary International, whose 1.2 million members make it the largest service organization in the world. Founded in 1905, Rotary International began for the purpose of “doing good in the world,” and has since raised more than $1 billion to combat polio and to promote health and education worldwide. Those numbers are a little smaller in the North Country, but the desire to help others is just as great. It began June 26, 1997 as a spinoff of the Plattsburgh Rotary. Several of the group’s eleven members have participated since the beginning. Lisa Roberts, former president of the Rotary Club of Champlain-Rouses Point, said that she got into Rotary when she started banking because her boss was a rotarian and wanted everyone to join.

And now, she’s happy to be a member. “After you see the good Rotary does, you want to be a part of it,” Roberts said. “You fall in love with it, you believe in the cause and you really don’t want to leave.” Allen Racine, Vice President and Northern Region Corporate Banking Manager of Glens Falls National Bank and Trust Company, said he joined the club about 4 years ago and has since become the club’s president. He echoed Roberts’ sentiment, and added that helping the community is integral to being a rotarian. To support the club’s many causes, each Rotary member must pay annual dues, most of which goes to Rotary International to support various international programs and objectives. That means money local clubs collect through fundraising efforts stays within the community. The largest fundraiser the group held raised $7000 for a new fire rescue trailer for the Champlain Fire Department in March 2008. They also raised money and built a pavilion,

Come get down with Zip City Blues at Irises By Shaun Kittle

shaun@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — It’s rare to find a band who plays with such integrity that their covers sound like originals. Zip City Blues is that kind of band. The group’s size is just about as varied as the eclectic batch of songs they play—sometimes their performances will feature a full ensemble with drums, horns, bass, guitar and harmonica, other times it’s an acoustic set with vocalist and harmonica player Jeff Rendinaro and lap steel guitarist Eric O’Hara. This weekend, both incarnations of Zip City Blues will perform at Irises in Plattsburgh, with a full band on Friday night and an acoustic set, called Zip City Unzipped, Saturday. “That’s kind of the explanation of who we are,” Rendinaro said. “Everybody in the band used to play a lot, everybody has a world of experience. Now, this is where we live and this is what we do on the weekend. It’s that laid-back. It’s that mellow.” And “a world of experience” is almost putting it lightly. Rendinaro was raised in a musical family, and has been singing since he can remember. He started playing guitar in grammar school and soon after picked up the harmonica. His first exposure to the blues was the Rolling Stones’ cover of the 1937 Robert Johnson song “Love in Vain.” The music stayed with him, and he began working his way back—to the people who influenced his favorite musicians. Now, Rendinaro’s influences come through in his music. Zip City Blues plays tunes from well-renowned greats like Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Cab Calloway and Hank Williams and occasionally, they even through in an original. He laughed and added that the band also plays some modern tunes, like those written by the Stones and Bob Dylan in the 1970s. Music has always been a part of Rendinaro’s life, and after moving back to Plattsburgh in the 1990s, he met O’Hara through another local musician, Tim Hartnett. There was an immediate connection between the two musicians, a connection spoken in notes and rhythms instead of words. Both were taught many of the same songs by their parents, and both were able to play them effortlessly. About 40 years ago, O’Hara realized that

a lot of the songs he listened to contained a common thread— pedal steel guitar and lap steel guitar. As is the case with Rendinaro, the music, and those instruments, have stayed with him. Now O’Hara lives in Connecticut, where he does studio work with original band Uncle Flatty, who he hopes to bring to Plattsburgh by the summer. In the meantime, he is excited to reunite with Zip City Blues, and is especially excited for Friday night. “It’s a blast playing with a full band, it just gives me a lot more space,” O’Hara said. “I’m raring and ready to go.” The rest of the band is ready to go, too, and

Mooers Fire Department to host Easter raffle MOOERS — Mooers Volunteer Fire Department will hold their second-annual Easter raffle on Saturday March 23, at 7 p.m. at the Mooers Fire Station, 2508 New York State Bicycle Route 11.

when they begin to play Irises will be filled with Chicago-style blues, some jazz and a little bit of swing. There is one catch, though—no one is quite sure who the bass player will be Friday night. If everything goes as planned, it will be Bill Blough, whose day job is playing bass for George Thorogood. Since Blough is currently on tour, he might not be able to make it, and Lloyd Peterson, who is now a regular with Zip City Blues, will perform. Rendinaro and company won’t be disappointed either way—Peterson might not be touring with George Thorogood, but he’s no slouch, either. Perhaps most notably, he has played with

Give the gift of laughs to your love for Valentine’s Day By Katherine Clark

katherine@denpubs.com ROUSES POINT — What will you bring your sweetie for Valentines Day? How about a night of comedy. “It’s a lot better than flowers that are going to die or lingerie she’ll throw out, no woman will slap their man in the face for buying comedy tickets,” Adirondack Comedy Club organizer Ray Wayman said. Pairing love and laughs for Valentines Day, the Adirondack Comedy Club will be hosting a Comedy Show on Friday Feb. 15, at the Rouses Point American Legion, 29 Pratt Street, sending the message “honey, we should have a laugh

together and I love you,” Wayman said. The comedy show will offer people in Rouses Point a chance to hear top comedians and enjoy a show close to home, Wayman said. The show will feature a range of acts. Headlining the show will be Phil Davidson, a Burlington, Vt. comedian who has performed at the Green Mountain Comedy Festival; Scott Chaplain, a New York City up and coming act that has performed at the New Jersey Comedy Fest and on Broadway; Mike Racine, a comedian from Montreal named as Best New Comic by Emerging Comics of New York Awards and was nominated for Time Out New York’s joke of the year, and comedy newcomer Wayman will perform and host the event. Wayman said the jokes will run free and not be entirely focused on love.

“It’s not necessarily a theme show, we picked the venue as a great place for men to bring their ladies to a show, have a drink and have a nice evening without having to go too far on Valentines Day,” Wayman said. “Singles should come out to, it won’t all be couples and you never know, love may spark!” The first 50 ladies at the event will be given a flower. Hors d’oeuvres will be served at 7 p.m. the show begins at 8 p.m. and a drink is included with price of admission. Tickets are $18 in advance for couples or $20 at the door. For singles tickets are $10 in advance or $12 at the door. Tickets can be purchased online at https://adirondackcomedyclub.ticketbud.com/rpvalentine or at the American Legion. For more information contact Wayman at 420-3625.

Jaki and Rob Roy from page 1 less than conventional travels. “We like to travel close to the ground, staying in hostels, couch surfing, hitch hiking, totally opposite of tourism,” Rob said. The Roy’s, who own Earthwood Building School in West Chazy, have been able to travel inexpensively around the world to places like Chili, New Zealand, Panama and Europe. During their more than 50 years of travels they have discovered how to truely immerse themselves in the culture of each country and meet new people. In their book they share simple workable travel strategies gleaned over the years that they have found create exceptional experiences. On one recent journey, Rob and Jaki were invited into a sacred Maori marae in the Cook Islands; witnessed an exploding volcano in Vanauatu; canoed and steamboated Australia’s Murray River; played cricket in a New South Wales goat field; hiked across Rarotonga, and snorkeled among self-illuminating jellyfish in New Zealand’s Poor Knights Islands. “I try to cultivate coincidences, by seeking out people who we share interests with and extending ourselves,” Rob said. “The key is to think outside your comfort zone.” The Roy’s say the all inclusive, resort style vacations create a barrier between the traveler and the locals. “You don’t get to see the country and you don’t realize what you are missing by traveling like that,” Rob said. The conventional method of travel can also create what Jaki calls the “ugly American.” “The ugly American describes people who leave America and want everything to be the same for them on vacation with the same comforts. The ugly American on vacation is louder, more demanding, boisterous, and brash,” Jaki said. “People want to reach out and learn about your life too, and share experiences, but it’s when we become brash it creates a barrier between us and them and it doesn’t create a good feeling.” The Roys said when going on vacation they make arrangements for their first day in an unfamiliar country. With the use of social media sites and websites like couchsurfer.com and other mediums they let the rest of the vacation play out as time passes. During their Feb. 21 presentation they will share their techniques for travel, and how to do as much as possible with the least amount of cash. Rob said thier least expensive trip was a five-week trip to Panama where they spent between $12 to $16 a night. “There is so much to do and see in Panama, the travel was cheap using busses and walking and we had a really great trip,” Rob said. Their lessons are for anyone with a basic level of fitness, willingness to depart from one’s comfort zone, have free time, and (a little bit) of money. The Roys book, “The coincidental traveler: an Adventure for budget-minded grown-ups” will be available for sale at the presentation and is also available at the Corner-Stone Bookshop on Margaret Street in Plattsburgh; Conroy’s Organics on Route 9 in West Chazy and on Amazon.com. Space at the Alice is limited and reservations are encouraged. To reserve a seat or to learn more about the event call 846-7336, or email director@minermuseum.org.

Gallant graduates basic training WEST CHAZY — Marine Corps Pvt. Nicholas C. Gallant, son of Sherry L. Gallant of West Chazy, N. Y. and Mark D. Gallant, of Franklin, Vt., earned the title of United States Marine after graduating from recruit training at Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island, S. C. For 13 weeks, Gallant stayed committed during some of the world's most demanding entry-level military training in order to be transformed from civilian to Marine instilled with pride, discipline and the core values of honor, courage and commitment. Training subjects included close-order drill, marksmanship with an M-16A4 rifle, physical fitness, martial arts, swimming, military history, customs and courtesies. One week prior to graduation, Gallant endured The Crucible, a 54-hour final test of recruits' minds and bodies. Upon completion, recruits are presented the Marine Corps emblem and called Marines for the first time. Gallant is a 2012 graduate of Bellows Free Academy of St. Albans, Vt.

here are dates with obvious significance. Feb. 19 is not one of them, but maybe it should be.

Feb. 19, 1945, U.S. Marines landed on the Japanese island of Iwo Jima. The small island, about 10 square miles, was vital to an anticipated American invasion of Japan that would end World War II. When U.S. Marines finally secured the island on March 16, they had 6,891 dead and more than 18,000 wounded. The casualty rate among Marines on Iwo Jima was a staggering 22 percent. All but 212 of the 22,000 Japanese defenders on the island died. Ray Tolar of Ticonderoga remembers Feb. 19. A Marine, he was there in 1945 and has made a point of marking the anniversary ever since. “On Memorial Day we raise the flag and salute,” Tolar said. “But we should do more. We should remember the sacrifices of Americans every day. “Mark Feb. 19 on your calendar and, if you will, give thought to this meager reminder,” he said. “A degree of sorrow will be felt in your heart as well as a tremendous sense of pride for being an American and what it stands for. Semper Fi. “For me this is a cause,” Tolar said. “It’s important to remember what freedom costs, to remember those who have died.” After three days of fighting Marines captured Mount Suribachi, the island’s highest point. There Marines raised an American flag, a moment that became famous thanks to a photo shown around the world. Many assumed the flag raising was a symbol of victory. It was really just the start. That was 68 years ago. In the years since American men and women have continued to sacrifice. We received a painful reminder of those sacrifices when Staff Sgt. Venne, age 29, of Port Henry was killed in Paktiya Province, Afghanistan, last November. Venne and others made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation. Other sacrifices are less apparent. Tom Bain of Putnam, who plans to retire from active Army service this June after 23 years, recently noted the sacrifices of his family. “The service to my country is not a solo event,” he said. “I have to give great credit to my wife of 20 years, Christine, and my children, Tommy and Caitlin. Without their support, a career in the military would not have been possible. I am eternally grateful for the support they gave me throughout the years and am sorry for the sacrifices and challenges they faced in my many absences.” A chief warrant officer, Bain has served around the world as a helicopter pilot. There are thousands of men and women like him — and families like his — serving our nation while asking so little in return. So, Feb. 19 let’s honor Ray Tolar ’s request. Let’s take a moment to think about the men, women and families, past and present, who have demonstrated the greatest ideal of our nation — the willingness to sacrifice for others. —Denton Publications Editorial Board

Stand up and speak out

I

am fortunate to be able to have and use this venue to voice my concerns about the direction of our country. Each week I hear from many of you. At times, I must admit I’m a little embarrassed by the acknowledgements and the degree of praise I receive. I think readers recognize I’m writing from the heart. It’s not so much how I put the words on paper, but perhaps the passion and belief behind what I try to convey. Like many of you, I’m concerned about the direction of our country, the attitude of our people and the things we see that are clearly not moving the nation in a positive direction. My goal here is to voice concern from a position that I hope the majority can agree needs attention. I also hope to encourage our leaders to put aside their party affiliation and hidden agendas designed to further divide the nation and stonewall needed legislation. I don’t consider myself a radical, a revolutionary or someone who sees a conspiracy behind every tree. There are simply subjects that I don’t see appearing in the national media, however, that should be covered and I’m concerned why they are ignored. I make these points because it reflects what I hear from many of you when you contact me. One of my concerns when I began writing this column a couple years ago was the fear of offending some readers or advertisers who ultimately pay the way for this free newspaper. I’m surprised at the number of you who express concern about speaking out and expressing their views either in letters to the editor, guest commentaries or comments on the web site. Fear of retribution is a major concern for many of you. The concern that in this land of free speech many have been silenced by fear, not of what others will think, but more so by what others may do, is an alarming trend. Respectful disagreement has taken a back seat in this day and age. One can easily see how outspoken individuals can be labeled “crackpots” or “nut cases” and the media and our politicians should take the blame for making citizens fearful about speaking out. Think for a moment, if you were given an opportunity to speak out respectfully about your primary concerns for the key issues facing this na-

Online

tion and you had the opportunity to do so less than 5 feet from the president, vice president, the first lady and many of our elected officials. I encourage you to watch the 27-minute

Thoughts from Behind the Pressline

video of Dr. Benjamin Carson, a John Hopkins pediatric neurosurgeon who dug his way out of the poorest of situations when he was young and gave a speech last week at the National Prayer Breakfast. Carson offered his concerns for the nation on subjects like the deficit, education, taxation, political correctness, partisan bickering and God all while the nation’s leaders looked on. The video can be viewed on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vyyHegP255g. In case you don’t have access to a computer, here is one of Carson’s many points: CARSON: “What we need to do is come up with something simple. And when I pick up my Bible, you know what I see? I see the fairest individual in the universe, God, and he's given us a system. It's called a tithe. We don't necessarily have to do 10 percent but it's the principle. He didn't say if your crops fail, don't give me any tithe or if you have a bumper crop, give me triple tithe. So there must be something inherently fair about proportionality. You make $10 billion, you put in a billion. You make $10 you put in one. Of course you've got to get rid of the loopholes. Some people say, 'Well that's not fair because it doesn't hurt the guy who made $10 billion as much as the guy who made 10.' Where does it say you've got to hurt the guy? He just put a billion dollars in the pot. We don't need to hurt him. It's that kind of thinking that has resulted in 602 banks in the Cayman Islands. That money needs to be back here building our infrastructure and creating jobs.”

e all have opportunities in life to “turn over a new leaf” and walking into A NEW LEAF florist is like a breath of fresh air, especially on a cold winter day! Kelly Owen, owner and designer, is friendly, approachable and creative; the perfect combination for customers needing floral and design advice. Being excited about what she does, she is up for the challenges that “affordable” beauty present. Open for the past year and a half, on Smithfield Boulevard, Kelly has accomplished quite a bit and gathered a strong customer base through her unique arrangements for funerals, weddings, home decorating and everyday beauty! If you are not sure about that perfect gift, Kelly highly recommends browsing and asking questions. Sitting down with customers and conversing about that gift or the event they are planning is a perfect starting point with Kelly. Through a well guided conversation, she can pinpoint the highlights of what someone is really looking for. Whether it be flowers to reflect the unique qualities of a loved one who has passed or for a wedding or other special event, Kelly can creatively honor that special person or occasion. Her fresh, silk and dried flowers range from standard to exotic and her bouquets and arrangements are unique and oh, so current. Very traditional times for flowers are weddings and funerals. Brides always have ideas from Pintrest, magazines, and bridal shows which can be adapted from an expensive idea into something that is within their budget. Kelly personalizes arrangements for a funeral by using color or an intended remembrance or impression. It is a perfect way for friends and family to show their love for that person, their compassion for the family, and to help them through the grief process. Never wanting to disappoint a customer, Kelly takes the time to listen to the subtleties of what her customers disclose and to

create something beautiful with the understanding that price is also of utmost importance! OUR RECOMMENDATION: Firstly, put A NEW LEAF on your schedule for a browse through! Secondly, add flowers to your everyday life…bring your own unique or sentimental container, a piece of fabric or a magazine picture to express what you are looking for. An empty (local) wine bottle is a great “vase” to use for buds or when cut, can be filled with an arrangement that has a wine label memory attached! Turn over a new leaf by making everyday a special occasion with fresh flowers on your desk at work, in your kitchen, or bedroom. It definitely turns ordinary into extraordinary!

Gun law not about stopping crime

Tobacco: A destructive product To the North Countryman: You can’t walk in to a store this time of year and not be bombarded with bright colors, large signs, and displays that impact your purchasing decisions. Holiday shopping is a marketing frenzy for many corporations. Yet all yearround, tobacco companies spend over a half-million dollars a day in New York State to market their addictive product. In 2012, the Surgeon General reported that tobacco marketing has a direct link to a teenager ’s tobacco use. In-store tobacco displays send messages to teens and children that distort the social acceptability and popularity of tobacco use. The average tobacco marketing display at a convenience store or pharmacy is 32 square feet. That’s equivalent to a area rug full of cigarette packages and tobacco marketing light behind the cash register. Tobacco Control Programs throughout New York State are working to educate the community about the policy options that help limit children’s exposure to tobacco marketing. To learn more about supporting NYS Tobacco Control Programs, visit www.tobaccofreenys.org . Nanette Postlethwait Tobacco Control Program Assistant Adirondack Tobacco Free Network

Flood insurance premiums going up To the North Countryman: Last summer, Congress enacted changes to the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) that will result in dramatically higher flood insurance costs for many policyholders. To account for the true costs of flood insurance, the bill phases in premiums that reflect the full flood risk of each insured building. Congress clearly wants to restore the fiscal soundness of the NFIP (which owed the U.S. Treasury $17 billion prior to Hurricane Sandy) and expects people who occupy floodplains to shoulder more of the costs. The legislation phases out insurance subsidies for several categories of buildings, including: second homes, business properties, new policies, and newly purchased property. Without these subsidies, insurance costs will be based on the elevation (or flood protection level) of the structure. The resulting rates can be quite high, particularly for buildings with basements. Other changes will affect rates for all flood insurance policies, which can rise by up to 20 percent per year. The bottom line is that premiums are going to rise significantly in future years. Unfortunately, Congress did not address the affordability of flood insurance, other than to authorize a study. The New York State Floodplain and Stormwater Managers Association (NYSFSMA) recognizes the need for NFIP reform, but is concerned about the impact this legislation will have on business districts and real estate markets in older floodplain communities. The Association will continue to advocate for additional reforms to the flood insurance program in order to achieve the multiple objectives of affordability, fairness, and fiscal soundness. David Hatin Region 5 Director, NYSFSMA

Excellent editorial on gun laws

To the North Countryman: With all the hype, outright lies about guns and gun control, not one word about why the government wants guns removed from the hands of law abiding citizens. It’s not about stopping crime on making little Jonnys and Suzies safer in the gun free school killing zones. No, it’s called “The new world order.” Armed citizens cannot be enslaved by the United Nations “New World Order.” Think about what happens when the constitution and the Bill of Rights is banned. Have you ever read Hitler ’s 1938 gun control act and the US of A’s 1968 gun control act? Almost word for word! Look at the millions of disarmed citizens butchered worldwide, which for your information is still going on. Those that beat their weapons into plows, will plow for those that don’t.

To the North Countryman: Excellent editorial regarding the new gun laws that were rammed through. The Governor is first and foremost a politician with his sights on The White House (as if the current President isn't liberal enough). These laws are nothing more than a publicity stunt and will not accomplish the stated goal of reducing gun violence. After all, DWI, Rape, Theft, etc. are all illegal and that doesn't seem to matter to those intent on breaking the law. Kudos to Dan Stec and Betty Little for voting against this.

shaun@denpubs.com Every once in a while a great white shark gets loose in the Champlain Center Mall in Plattsburgh and gracefully swims through the air, delighting unsuspecting observers. There is no danger present; the creature is merely a rare species of floating shark, an inhabitant of a toy store called Kidstructive Fun. Clearly, this isn’t your average toy store. There are no blinking lights, no buzzing noises and no video games to greet visitors. Instead there are items that inspire interaction, like puppets, instruments, science kits, puzzles, games and playsets whose

Its second outpost opened in Plattsburgh on May 23, 2012. Today, the toy store employs about 16 parttime employees. Raiche said she and her husband like to keep things as local as possible, so they try to offer products that are made in the Unit-

ed States. They also sell toys from Maple Landmark, a Vermont company that specializes in wooden toys. The couple has six children of their own, and used their experiences in raising them as a template for stocking the store. Each child is unique, Raiche said, and helping them discover what their passions are is an important part of being a parent. “We think about what’s going to peak their interest, what is going to make kids stop and say, ‘Now that’s what I’m into,’” Raiche said.

The looming storm

D

espite recent temperature variations that have kept local thermometers bouncing around like a pogo stick, the winter of 2012-13 has been rather blah. Snow cover has come and gone, and come back again. Snow depths have been adequate for skiing the backcountry and after a short spell of slushy conditions, ice cover has remained pretty consistent. Fortunately, the region was largely spared by the recent winter storm that ravaged the coast of New England, however, there is plenty of time left, in that regard. Prior to the turn of the millennium, the truly severe weather events hit the Adirondack region only about twice a century. A few of those record setting events included The Great Windfall of 1845, The Great Floods of 1858, The Blizzard of 1888, and The Big Blow of 1950. However, the frequency of intense weather events began to accelerate after a crippling blizzard struck the northeast in December of 1964. That event was followed soon after by another big storm that pounded the region in December of 1969. Those initial storms provided a forewarning of a frequency that was soon to follow, and soon in November of 1971, a massive Thanksgiving Snowstorm effectively crippled the entire state. The next monster storm to pound the northeast arrived in February of 1978, and yet another hard storm arrived on February 13,1980. Fortunately, the fierce February storm of 1980 delivered enough of the necessary white stuff for the snowless community of Lake Placid to host competitions during the XIII Winter Olympic Games. In following years, major snowstorms began pummeling the northeast with increased frequency, and a number of record set-

ting foul-weather events occurred over the next decade with blizzards in January 1983, October, 1987 and December 1992. In March of 1993, the first Superstorm arrived, and it was packing powerful, hurricane force winds. Labeled as the ‘Storm of the Century,’ the raging blizzard was responsible for over 30 deaths and left over 2.5 million people without power for weeks. The massive storm paralyzed the entire east coast with floods in the south, and blizzard conditions throughout the northeast, but after it finally ended, there was another long lull before any similarly wayward storms occurred. Nearly a decade had passed before the long drought was finally shattered by two powerful storms that pounded the northeast with a series of punishing, back to back Nor’easters over the Christmas 2002 and New Years 2003 holiday. The devastating, double whammy of the holiday season was soon followed by another major storm that struck the northeast in a span of less than two months. The powerful storm arrived on Presidents Day weekend, 2003, and it was the last of three devastating winter storms that rumbled through the region that season. After three major storms plowed through the Northeast in the winter of 2002-2003, the pace of major storms began to slow again. The next major storm to visit the Northeast was a Category 3, Winter Storm. With hurricane force winds and heavy snow, it battered the Northeast on Valentine’s Day, 2007 and shut down trains, planes and automobiles, and plunged millions of households into total darkness for days. The Valentine’s Day Disaster of 2007 was followed by The Great Ice Storm of ‘08, which encased the entire northeast in a thick layer of ice that toppled trees, telephone poles and transmission towers in late December. The storm produced a staggering mix of ice and heavy snow that crippled the entire region for more than two weeks in an area stretching from Montreal, Canada to Washington, DC. In recent years, the frequency of such fierce storms has steadily increased, and those storms have grown more powerful as evidenced by the destructive powers of Hurricane Floyd in 1999. Tropical Storm Irene ravaged the region’s roadways in 2011, and it will take many years for the local waterways to recover from the scouring caused by the resulting floods. Fortunately, the Adirondack region was largely spared from any extensive damage as the remnants of Hurricane Sandy blew through the area in October of 2012. However, we can expect to see more of the same according to a report issued by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The report explains that due to increasing moisture in the atmosphere, such severe weather events will become more frequent and more turbulent. Daily rainfall records collected from a variety of Adirondack weather stations over the past century reveal that "extreme rainfall events" of 2 inches of rain or more have become common in recent years. It is no surprise, for as the climate warms, more moisture is re-

leased into the atmosphere. And we all know, “What goes up, must eventually come down.” According to international climate scientists, climate change will result in more frequent droughts, heavier floods and more prolonged heat waves. Eventually, the experts predict, conditions may become so increasingly severe that some locations will only be “marginal as places to live.” Scientists expect climate change will have a variety of serious side effects in the Adirondacks, according to a recent study conducted by the NYS Energy Research and Development Authority. Projections indicate a rise of just 2 degrees in the average temperature will significantly reduce the costs associated with heating our homes. It sounds good to me! However, these changes may also require us to learn how to deal with 90 to 100 degree temperatures. And there will be other effects as well. Maple production will suffer, or possibly disappear all together. Cold water species such as brook trout may be threatened by competition with warm water species such as bass, perch or the introduction of invasive species. With the rise in temperature, air quality will be reduced, and there will be more pollen, and more allergies. Warming trends will disrupt many traditional Adirondack pursuits, and the threat of invasive species will increase. Outdoor enthusiasts will be among the first to experience the impact of climate change, which will affect many of their activities. Many long held, Adirondack sporting traditions will be affected. Ski seasons will be condensed, as will other winter activities such as snowmobiling, ice fishing, pond hockey, as well as the availability of tracking snow during the big game hunting season. It is expected the winter season will be condensed, and it will be wetter. Summers will become warmer, and longer in duration, and overall seasons will be less distinct. Precipitation will arrive mostly in the form of heavy storms, and rainfall will become less frequent. Summer droughts will become common, and they will last longer. It will be drier. Water levels will be diminished in the rivers and streams, and water temperatures will increase. Lake ice may no longer support activities such as ice fishing, ice sailing or even pond hockey. If ice cover does set up, it will be thinner and less consistent. Frogs will begin singing nearly a month earlier on average, and birds will arrive sooner. Seasons will be expedited, and far less defined. Already, there is evidence of local apple trees blooming over a week earlier than they did in the 1960’s. Projections indicate some wildlife populations, including whitetail deer will increase, as will the incidence of Lyme Disease. The traditional range of many habitats will shift, as oak and hickory begin to replace maple and beech. We may lose spruce and fir trees in the upper elevation, boreal forests. The shift will affect many of the birds and animals that depend on such habitats. The intricate web of life supported by the vast system of local boreal bogs will likely be endangered. Projections are dire, and the remedies are few. The world that we have known for generations is changing rapidly, as are many of the traditions that define our way of life.
