Massive flooding rocks Clinton County

Lake Champlain presents major problems for homeowners By Jeremiah S. Papineau

POINT AU ROCHE — As the water levels on Lake Champlain began to rise steadily over the last thr ee weeks, Alice T. Sample was watching them. “It was very gradual in the beginning, but in this last week, it has been rising

sometimes 6 inches a day ,” said Sample. “It’s r eally come up tremendously.” As Sample stood on her back por ch looking out at the lake April 28, it was a view of the water much closer than should would have liked. “Normally, you’d see this beautiful r etaining wall,” Sample said, motioning to her back yard. “It’s about 75

feet out, but you can’t see it now.” The r etaining wall? Under water . The gr een grass and plants that Sample cares for on a regular basis? Gone. It’s the highest Sample said she’s seen the lake rise in a long time. “Craig [Sample’s husband] said the water ’s the highest it’s ever been since

1869,” she said. Sample’s husband was tracking the cr est levels on Lake Champlain thr ough the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and received word that day the lake over the 102.10 ft r ecord. That r ecord was confirmed when it was r eported the water level reached 102.50 ft. “The highest we have

ever seen was the 101.88 back in 1993,” said Sample. When that happened, it resulted in she and her husband deciding to have their house raised 40 inches with a new foundation cr eated beneath it. “This morning, we had ducks swimming up to the first step on our deck, investigating to see if ther e was any food. Right down ther e

Mor e importantly, she has concerns about it affecting her home septic system and well. “That’s what we’re really worried about. If that happens, we’ll have to leave. We can’t live her e without those,” said Sample, adding she and her husband have already begun to make arrangements to evacuate.

CHAMPLAIN — The junior class at Northeastern Clinton Central School is trying something a little new for their prom this year — they’re going on a boat. And, not just any boat, the Spirit of Ethan Allen III. “One of our students had an uncle who had a wedding aboar d the Spirit of Ethan Allen III, and suggested we hold the prom on the boat this year,” said faculty advisor Karen Bouvier. “And, as advisor, it was my job to look into it.” What Bouvier found was the cost of r enting the Spirit of Ethan Allen III, was comparable to r enting their traditional venue, the Rainbow Wedding and Banquet Hall in Altona. “It wasn’t anything against them, it was just something that was suggested and the kids voted

overwhelmingly for it,” said Bouvier. Bianca Grimshaw, a member of the junior class in favor of the sea-faring pr om, said she’s looking forwar d to this Satur day, May 7, when the prom will be held on the lake. “I’m excited. I think it will be fun. It’s something different that hasn’t been done befor e,” said Grimshaw, who added it could be the start of a tradition for the school. Principal Stephen E. Gratto said he’s not sure if that’ll be the case, but he’s also looking forwar d to the students having a fun time aboard the Spirit of Ethan Allen III. “I don’t know if it’ll be a tradition or not, but I certainly applaud the junior class for taking the initiative and pursuing an idea that hasn’t been pursued,” said Gratto. The recent flooding in the

region thr ew a potential monkey wr ench into the works for the pr om as students wer e going to be picked up by the boat at Wilcox Dock. However , dangerously high waters resulted in that not being an option, said Bouvier. “The school is now going to bus the students to

Burlington and bus them back,” she said. That will be an added benefit for students taking advantage of an after -prom party at the school, since they won’t have to drive from Plattsbur gh following the prom, added Bouvier. “So, it was kind of a blessing in disguise,” she said.

SARANAC — The Saranac United Methodist Chur ch and its parsonage ar e both in need of a little work. And, it’s work to the tune several thousand dollars. Larry Lake, pastor of the Saranac United Methodist Chur ch, said the chur ch leader-

ship has been working since last fall to raise enough money to complete r enovations to both the church and the parsonage, located off State Route 3 in the town of Saranac. The buildings, said Lake, date back to the early 1900s, and ar e in need of general r epairs. A section of the church’s roof was replaced last fall as part of the largest repairs needed by the two buildings, the pastor added. “We’ve already spent over $10,000 repairing section of the roof,” said Lake. “There See CHURCH, continued on page 16

ealth car e in America consumes over 18 per cent of our gr oss national product (GDP), yet it is one of the most fragmented industries in this country. It still functions as a cottage industry. This leads to confusion, inefficiency and decreased quality of care. Let’s follow a hypothetical patient through the system to try to understand this fragmentation. The situation: Alice, 45, is married and the mother of two children, aged 5 and 9. She and her husband each have health insurance through their jobs. Other than to have her two children, Alice David G. Welch, M.D. has never been in Thoughts from the hospital. Her Behind the Stethoscope mother is diabetic; her father , 67, died last year of colon cancer; and her sister, 51, has just been diagnosed with br east cancer. “Doc Jones” is their family physician. Alice has an OB GYN physician she used during her two pr egnancies. The kids go to Dr. Young, a pediatrician. Because of her sister's breast cancer, Alice decides she needs to have a checkup herself. See DR. WELCH, page 7

ow that Warren County has attracted a railr oad company to operate train service — fr eight hauling and tourist excursions — along its tracks through the Upper Hudson V alley, it’s time to find a solution for the rail line between Lake Placid and Tupper Lake. The choices? 1) Invest in the railr oad by fixing and maintaining 34 miles of tracks, extending the tourist train from Lake Placid to Tupper Lake. 2) Tear up the tracks and build a multiuse recreational trail fr om Lake Placid to Tupper Lake. 3) Do nothing. Right now, nothing is being done. That would be okay if a compr ehensive study, detailing the projected costs and economic impacts of — 1) investing in the tracks versus 2) investing in a recreation trail — needed to be compiled. But we’re past that stage. A study, commissioned by, was completed over the winter by Camoin Associates and Barton & Loguidice. Now it’s time for the state of New York to make a decision, as it is the state Department of Transportation that owns the rail line. Our opinion: If New York state doesn’t sign a railr oad contract with a private company — of fering fr eight hauling and tourist excursions — by next spring, the tracks should be torn up, and a multi-use recreational trail should be built fr om Lake Placid to T upper Lake. That would offer mor e r ecreational options for r esidents and the traveling public at a better price for the user. The Adirondack Scenic Railr oad (ASR) currently operates tourist excursions out of Utica, Thendara, and between the Saranac Lake and Lake Placid train stations on a seasonal basis. T rains use the tracks to transport r olling stock between Thendara and Lake Placid in the spring and fall, yet most of the line is unused during the warm months. In the winter, when the snow is deep enough, snowmobiles use the corridor , yet the season for good snow coverage is r elatively short. For most of the year , it is wasted space, and taxpayers foot the bill for maintenance. A group of Tupper Lakers — Next Stop! Tupper Lake — wants the ASR to extend its tourist train service from Saranac Lake to Tupper Lake. In the Tupper Lake Junction a few years ago, local volunteers r e-

built a replica of the old train station. T u pper Lake is r eady for the train, and it seems the train is r eady for Tupper Lake. But the tracks are not ready; they need an expensive overhaul. Let’s weigh the costs and benefits.

Rail line Construction cost: $10.6 million Annual maintenance: $45,000 Net new regional spending: $758,000 Permanent jobs created: 13 User cost to the public: A r ound-trip ticket fr om Lake Placid to Saranac Lake currently costs $19 per adult, and tickets to Tupper Lake may be more expensive.

Recreation trail (permanent) Construction cost: $14.6 million Annual maintenance: $51,000 Net new regional spending: $1.2 million Permanent jobs created: 20 User cost to the public: It would be free for the public to use. It’s simply not worth the taxpayer dollars to renovate and maintain a tourist excursion train fr om Lake Placid to T upper Lake unless a private rail company — not a not-for -profit gr oup of railfans such as the Adirondack Scenic Railroad — invests in the rail line, like Iowa Pacific Holdings, Inc. is doing in Warren County. The newly named Saratoga and North Creek Railway will soon r e-open to freight, and Iowa Pacific has agreed to operate tourist excursions from North Creek, including ski trains in the winter . The company will pay for track r epairs up to $50,000, insurance and taxes. And the county will receive at least $82,000 during the first year. Adirondack Scenic Railr oad of ficials and local politicians have been lobbying for freight service to the Tri-Lakes for several years, unsuccessfully, and no contract has been signed. It’s time to move forward. Get a contract now , or tear up the tracks.

Recalling the hours after Japan’s devastation By Josh Pray

Special to Denton Publications (Editor’s Note: The following is an account of the recent earthquake that hit Japan and the tsunami that followed told from the point of view of Josh Pray, a former Keeseville resident living in Hawaii at the time.) The massive earthquake that str uck recently in Japan and ensuing tsunami affected not only the citizens and axis of the world, but also str uck closely to my own trivial life. When a farm boy from the mountains of the North Country hears the words ‘tsunami’ and ‘Japan’ in the same sentence, they seem foreign and almost trifling. ‘Ice Storm’ sounds scary. ‘Nor ’Easter ’ is enough to send shivers up my spine. But those wor ds do not send people r unning for the hills. They do not activate air-raid sirens. They do not destroy lives. I learned very quickly the tr oubles of the Pan-Pacific world thr ough a first-hand experience with the warmer side of Mother Natur e’s fury. It was late, around 9 p.m. HST, and I was finishing up my work in the garage of my sister‘s house on Marine Corps Base Hawaii in Kaneohe Bay . Just puttering ar ound, sanding and sweeping, when I heard a voice from behind. It was friendly, but with a touch of alarm. “Hey! Yo!” I turned to see the owner of the voice. It was a marine, not much older than myself, dr essed in desert fatigues with a phone to his ear . I went back to my work. “Hey, man. Did you hear about the earthquake? In Japan?” Naturally, that caught my attention. “No. What happened.” “Huge earthquake over ther e. Ther e was a tsunami watch that has been upgraded to a tsunami warning. Sirens are about to go off any minute.” Quickly I ran inside to warn my family and help gather the essentials for a quick getaway . My sister, mother, nephew and I would leave the shores of Windward Oahu and head toward the

center of the island to my apartment in Mililani. There, we would be safe fr om even a 200-foot wave. Without trying to panic, we loaded the vehicle with some bedtime storybooks, stuf fed animals and a sleepy two-year-old. On the road, no music was playing, only overly-tir ed deejays called in on their day of f to repeat information over and over again while trying to soothe a distraught island. Being on a marine base, we r eceived the warning much before the civilian sector, and we beat the ush r to get to higher gr ound. Below us on the str eets, we could see the growing lines of traffic heading toward the freeway. People ran with giants rolls of toilet paper under their arms like crazed football players or cases of water on their heads like Extr eme Charm School students. I could only imagine my own town would be the sight of much confusion and chaos. Once in Mililani, we dr opped my sister and her son of f in the apartment so he could go quickly back to bed. My mother and I ran to alW Mart to stock up on necessities in case the entir e island wer e to be decimated by morning. The waves were supposed to hit around 3:00 AM. I felt like Old Mother Hubbar d in the stor e. All the shelves wer e bar e. Br ead was gone. Canned goods were being bought like hot cakes. Chips and soda wer e worth fighting over . Water was as good as gold. I bought the gr oceries while my mother waited 45 minutes to fill the car up with gas. The whole time I was standing in line, which was now extending in to the Gr eeting Card aisle, I could only imagine what the morning would bring. I had seen pictur es of other tsunamis. Cars in the water and boats on land. Palm trees lying crossways like they were just too tired to stand anymore. I imagined pandemonium, but was happy that we would be safe wher e we were. Luckily the phone lines wer e not yet jammed so my family knew I was safe for the time being at least.All I could think of was Haiti 2010, Indonesia 2004, and about all the plate tectonic lessons I endured in Earth Science class.

There was an air of calm panic. People walked quickly but remained cordial and even friendly. I saw hand shakes and high fives fr om people who either had not seen each other in a while or expected to not see each other again. There was no pushing or shoving, but I have never seen so much mer chandise moved at 1 1:00 PM. If you were dropped in the middle of the situation, you would only have to take one look at the shopping carts to know something big was happening. When I woke the next morning, I saw I had a few dozen missed phone calls and text messages. Bad news travel fast, I suppose. I hoped for the best, but was prepared for the worst. Luckily, Oahu r eceived the best. No loss of life or pr operty and we wer e given the “all clear” message fr om the governor himself before noon.

This will go on for six months, and then they will repeat the mammogram and sonogram. Fast forward one year. Alice has completed the chemotherapy for her breast lesion, and she has continued tr eatment for her diabetes and had a second colonoscopy. At that colonoscopy, another suspicious polyp was r emoved and she is now back in the of fice of Dr . Butte to discuss her thir d colonoscopy. He feels that the thir d polyp is abnormal enough that he wants to do a partial colon re-section and schedules her for that surgery.

What could have been a devastating experience turned out to be no more than a dry run for me. I felt silly after I looked at my usually bare fridge, now chock full of milk, water, meats and candy bars. I could not help but think and laugh at how much Wal-Mart must have profited from such panic. So, no, North Country . I cannot warm your heart with harrowing tales of conquering insurmountable odds. There was no dramatic music to be played in that scene of my life story. I won no medals for bravery or her oism. I was just a North Country bumpkin out of his element and scared stiff by a warning. I would like to tell you I saved lives and made death back down after I gave it a steely look and beat my chest. I ran, bought Hershey’s chocolate bars and fell asleep.

thought she was in good health and wound up with visit to half a dozen providers, thr ee hospitals two imaging centers and thr ee labs. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Fragmentation issues her e and problems ar e many but very r eal in our system. The first issue is that ther e was no one place wher e her data was kept. Every time she saw a new pr ovider, hospital or facility, she went thr ough the whole r egistration pr ocess again and again. Second, only Dr. Blood took a thorough history and r ealized the family history of diabetes and cancer. Third, ther e was poor or limited communication between the providers. The lack of a common database for medical information on patients like Alice is one of the biggest failings in U.S. health care. It is made worse because providers collectively do not do

a good job of sharing patient information. Over the years, ther e have been many attempts to place the burden of coordination of car e on the primary care physician. What happens is they become a recipient of information but do not do a good job of sharing that information with all of the other consultants. Too often, as in this scenario, Dr. Jones did not have nor share information with all the other providers in her care. For the patient, the fr ustration is that every new pr ovider becomes a need to repeat the whole story all over again and often r esults in r epeated and unnecessary testing. It can also er sult in missing important clues as in her case of family disease. David G. Welch, M.D. lives in Lake Placid.

Mulling over that perfect mulch


andscape mulches ar e used to pr otect soil, conserve moistur e, moderate soil temperatur e, and limit weed gr owth, as well as beautify and unify landscape plantings. Most mulches ar e mixtures of shredded wood and bark r esidues fr om lumber and paper mills, arboricultural and land-clearing operations, and wooden pallet disposal or r ecycling facilities. Like other or ganic matter , wood and bark decompose over time. The primary or ganisms involved with their decomposition ar e bacteria and fungi. Bacteria are microscopic organisms that are not visible in the mulch. Fungi also may be microscopic, but many develop visible reproductive structures. The fungi involved in the decomposition of landscape mulches ar e natural components of the envir onment. The most fr equent types of fungi found in wood mulches include various mushrooms, slime molds, bir d’s nest fungus, and artillery fungus. These fungi are not harmful to landscape plants and no known health hazards ar e associated with them unless they are eaten. They can be foundApril through October, usually following rainy weather. Bird’s nest fungus has a fr uiting str ucture that looks like a miniature bird’s nest with tiny

eggs. The eggs are actually the fungi’s spor es. This fungus is harmless and does not have to be removed. Another harmless mulch fungus is the slime mold. These are the fungi that appear during damp conditions that look like the neighbor ’s dog brought up last night’s dinner onto your mulch. While this fungus may look disgusting, it feeds of f of bacteria in the mulch and is harmless. The one fungus you will want to r emove is artillery fungus. These r esemble tiny cups with one black egg. The “egg” is the spores. Eventually, the fungus shoots this sticky spore “egg” into the air. If the spore mass lands on siding or a car , the sticky black mass is almost impossible to remove. If you happen to remove it, it leaves a brown mark. If you are having issues with artillery fungus, it is best to replace the wood mulch with an inor ganic mulch, such a rubber or stone. Otherwise, you will have to keep an eye out for the fruiting, or sporing, structures and try to remove them prior to them releasing their spores.

Relieving stress with exercise


es, it’s true, exercise does a body good, but it is also true that virtually any kind of exercise can reduce stress as well. Exercise improves your overall health and sense of well-being. Some of the dir ect str ess reducing benefits you will see from exercising will be: Increased Endorphin Production — Endorphins are the feel-good neur otransmitters pr oduced by the brain. Often referred to as a “runner ’s high,” other forms of exer cise such as a hike or playing soccer can contribute to the same feeling. Exercise can be meditative — I often get this feeling after swimming laps in the pool. You are “in the moment” focusing on your form and br eathing, ther efore not giving into mindless thoughts and distractions fr om your day’s str esses. Your tensions will slowly dissipate leaving you with a clearer mind and more positive outlook. Exercise can help to impro ve your mood — Regular exer cise can incr ease confidence and lower symptoms associated with mild depr ession and anxiety . This can ease your levels of stress and give you

a sense of contr ol over your body and life.

How do I get started?

First, you’ll want to consult your doctor . Remember to gradually build up your pr ogram; you’ll be more likely to stick to it if you don’t over do it in the beginning. Do what you love. Exercise should be fun and you are more likely to continue to do something that you enjoy rather than dread. Pick a time and stick to it. Consider it like an appointment to yourself, your health, and your well-being. Schedule it in if you have to. Set some goals and strive to achieve them. Find a friend to help keep each other motivated, and change up your routine often to keep your body guessing and to keep things exciting. If you need help getting started with an exercise program, feel free to contact me.

News of the Week Sheriff warns about mail scams ELIZABETHTOWN — Sheriff Richar d Cutting is again warning the public against recent e-mails and now, regular mail advising of a significant inheritance. Recently, the Essex County Sherif f’s Of fice r eceived a complaint concerning mail r eceived advising of a multimillion dollar Eur opean inheritance. The writer claims to be an attorney r epresenting an estate worth millions. He further states that he is unable to track any living relatives of the deceased and as the recipient has the same last name, he would like to present this person as the rightful heir. This piece of mail went to an unoccupied addr ess and was only sent by last name and first initial and had a Portuguese postmark. Inquiries as to the bank holding these funds and the credentials of the alleged attorney were fruitless. Again, be careful of any information you may shar e. As always, “if it looks too good to be true, it probably is.”

County, state work to respond to needs List continues to grow as towns find more flooding problems on roadways

By Keith Lobdell ELIZABETHTOWN — Local lawmakers r ushed to pr ovide funding May 2 as the list of problems from last week’s flooding continued to grow. The Essex County Board of Supervisors approved a resolution authorizing the use of up to $2.5 million fro m the unappropriated fund balance to help pay for r epairs to r oadways and infrastr ucture thr oughout the county during its regular monthly meeting. “According to the lists that I have r eceived, we ar e currently looking at about $2.2 million in damages,” County Manager Daniel Palmer said. “W e would use the money to fund projects as they came down the road.” Palmer said that the ideal situation would be that the funds would eventually be r eplenished through federal relief funding. “If we end up with the federal funding, then we can epay r

the fund balance,” Palmer said. “If we do not receive FEMA funding, then we ar e going to have to look at a long-term bond situation.” “We feel that this is the way that we need to go right now ,” County Chairman Randy Douglas said. “Everybody is working hard to get the numbers concerning the amount needed for repairs.” The funding was immediately put to use, as County DPW Superintendent Anthony J. LaVigne asked for permission to start the r econstruction process of the Br oad Street and Titus Road bridges in the town of Moriah. “We have enter ed into an emer gency contract with Kubricky Construction for Broad Street in Moriah,” LaVigne said. “We continue to complete assessments and ar e going out to do road and bridge inspections.” LaVigne added that he did not feel that all the damages were known. “The damages ar e widespr ead thr oughout the county ,” LaVigne said. “I do anticipate more damages coming to light as time goes on.” “Various towns got hit more than others,” New York State DOT resident engineer Mike Fayette said. “We are more formally working with the towns by the order of the Governor (Andrew Cuomo). We are willing to provide the equipment and the people to the towns.”

Flooding renews calls for Rte. 22 raising ‘Rock cuts’ flooded out, hampering route to Crown Point bridge

By Keith Lobdell ELIZABETHTOWN — Moriah Supervisor Thomas Scozzafava said that there was already enough hardship with the flooding that took place last week before April 29. That was when the section of NewYork State Route 9N/22 known as the “rock cuts” between Crown Point and the village of Port Henry was closed down to traff ic due to the rising waters on Lake Champlain, now at its highest levels in recorded history. The roadway in the main r oute of transportation in eastern Essex County, and also is the main r oute used to get to the ferry crossing and bridge construction at Crown Point. Now, with very few roadways open to vehicles, Scozzafava renewed calls to raise the roadway along the rock cuts. “When it closes, it causes a har dship,” Scozzafava said

during the May 2 meeting of the Essex County Board of Supervisors. “The cars and tru cks are then re-routed on to town roads that cannot handle the traf fic — they wer e not designed to. The state needs to raise the road.” New York State DOT r esidential engineer Mike Fayette agreed with Scozzafava’s assessment. “When we have to close that r oad, it does cr eate havoc,” Fayette said. Scozzafava asked for a r esolution to implor e the state to raise the road through the rock cuts, which was unanimously passed by the board of supervisors. Along with Scozzafava’s r equest, the boar d also entertained and passed a r esolution by boar d chair and Jay Supervisor Randy Douglas for r epairs to be done on the drainage system in Au Sable Forks. “There ar e some serious drainage concerns along Main Street near the Hollywood Theater and other buildings, which is a state road,” Douglas said. The county is currently under a State of Emergency order from the state and awaiting to see if it will be declared as a federal disaster area.

Flooding From page 2 in youths by providing them with free books — had another concern as water crept up. She motioned to several inches of water covering the brick pavers in fr ont of her house leading up to her front porch and how the water was beginning to kiss the edge of the garage. “That’s wher e I stor e the books,” she said. “We had to get those out of there or they could have been r uined ... This is just unbelievable.” Down the r oad in Dickson Point, Donald W. Turner was dealing with headaches of his own. That same day, he was also trudging through several inches of water in his fr ont yard. The water had risen fast overnight, breaching the shoreline and sweeping across his property and across the end of the dead end road where his home rests. The high water was something he was bracing for , but had no idea would come up so fast. “Last night was a pleasant evening. We sat out and had a drink ...ther e was a little bit of standing water, but nothing like this,” said Turner as he stood in his driveway with water nearly to the top of his rubber boots. “My wife woke up this morning around 2 a.m. to the sound of the sump pump r unning continuously. It

sounded like running water. So, I got up and went down to the basement where there’s an old chimney that has an ash vent and water was just gushing in through that.” “We’re completely filled up under the house at this point,” he added. The massive flooding was what Turner considered the worst welcoming present as he and his wife, Kerrie, had just arrived at Dickson Point the previous afternoon. The couple have owned their house ther e for seven years, using it as a vacation home. It was only r ecently they r etired, made the decision to make the Dickson Point pr operty their permanent r esidence and sold their home in Buffalo. “So, this is a nice welcome,” said Turner as he tried to find some semblance of levity in the situation and let out a chuckle. The days following got worse for people like the Turners and the Samples and those along the banks of the several rivers and tributaries throughout the r egion. Several r oads were closed off due to high water with crews still combating the pro blem earlier this week. (Editor’s Note: We have more coverage of the flooding, including updates on our website, ON THE COVER: Alice T. Sample walks through flood waters in her fr ont yard from Lake Champlain.

Church From page 5 was significant r otting in the wood fr om leaks we wer e unawar e of. W e’re now in the pr ocess of r epairing and r enovating other sections of the church and just maintaining the buildings like we normally do.” Renovations planned for the buildings include painting the exterior of the churc h and r eplacing the r oof to an addition on the church. The chur ch leadership would also like to remove slate from another section of the roof and restore it before placing it back onto the aging structure. “Perhaps ther e ar e cheaper ways to do it, but we don’t want to put plastic siding on the church,” said Lake, referring to the painting of the chur ch. “We want to keep the buildings as original as possible.” That’s because ther e’s a sense of pride in the community for the building, er gardless if people attend services there or not, said Lake. “It has significant meaning to people because it’s the only chur ch in the village now,” said Lake, referring to the area now that was once an incorporated village. Though the church leadership is looking to raise $50,000, the remaining work to repair and restore the church is estimated at $40,000. Already, the chur ch has raised $10,000 since last fall when its r eserve

fund was depleted entir ely to cover the cost of roof repairs. “We try to keep monies aside that don’t come out of our operating budget,” explained Lake. “Every year , something needs to be done and we need to have the money to do it.” In addition to restoring the money in the reserve fund, a little more than $4,000 has been received to help cover the cost of future repairs and r enovations. The money, said Lake, has come in mainly in the form of donations. “We’ve had gr eat support fr om our membership” said Lake, who noted only 220 members are in the church’s congregation. “It r eally didn’t take long for us to



May 7, 2011 build back up our reserve fund.” However, the r oad ahead is one Lake said will likely take longer. “We know it may come along slow,” he said, “but I have faith in our community . They don’t hesitate to help one another.” Lake hopes the support fr om the community will continue as the chur ch r eadies itself to host a performance by Beartracks, an acoustic music trio consisting of Junior Barber, Tom Venne and Julie Venne Hogan. The concert, scheduled for Saturday, May 21, will begin at 7 p.m. The $10 cost of admission will benefit the Saranac United Methodist Chur ch Renovation Fund.

26 - North Countryman • Adirondack Outdoors/Death Notices

Wobblin’ all weekend L

ike most of the other anxious Adirondack anglers, I spent most of the past week on the open water , or searching for it. Although my success was limited, due primarily to feeding fish rather than a lack of ef fort, it certainly was good to be back in the saddle again. Obviously, I wasn’t the only one. On a day trip through the St. Regis Canoe Area covering over nine bodies of water , I counted 27 boats. As is often the case in the first few days after ice out, the fishing was rather spotty , with hot action on one pond and nothing on the next. However, the most consistent action I observed was the persistent and consistent action of the anglers. In nearly every instance, the boats were always in motion, with long lines tr olling behind them. If you ask most br ook tr out anglers what they’ve been up to, the common reply, “Just wobblin’ away the time.” Some may confuse the r esponse to indicate a weekend of heavy drinking, followed by a woozy trip home. However, fellow anglers will r eadily understand, since a Lake Clear Wabbler is possibly the most popular method for fishing brook trout. Although commonly pr onounced with an “o”, as in wobbler, the proper pronunciation for the de-

trolling or casting, is to determine the pr oper speed by trolling next the boat. At proper speed, the r od tip will have a slight and steady cadence and the spoon will or tate only 180 degrees or less. When casting, it is important to retrieve line by lifting the rod, and picking up the slack line with the r eel. With this method, it is easy to detect a strike and avoid twisting the line. I use the same method of r etrieve to check my bait after a strike. The easiest way to r uin a day is to reel a wabbler directly. Even the best snap swivel will not prevent line from becoming severely twisted. Line damaged in this manner will literally explode of f the reel when the bail is opened and in an instant, it will be a bird’s nest of monofilament. In traditional style, I row a guideboat to maintain a consistent trolling speed. Generally, I’ll run the wabbler about 75 feet back. I use a bungee cor d stretched across the gunnels to hold my rod within easy reach. With a hard strike, the cord can actually set the hook. When trolling with a rod in hand, I fight the instinct to set the hook on the first strike and allow the fish to get the bait. On rar e occasions, br ookies have been foul hooked when they hit the wabbler and embed a fly in their tail. They put up quite a battle coming to the net backwards. Lake Clear wabblers are also effective for rainbows, lakers, salmon and even for bass or pike. Essentially, wabblers are an attractor, but due to the natural cupping of the spoon; they also impart a regular darting action that most fish can’t resist.
