The effects of flooding on local fishing are a mixed bag, some say Special to Denton Publications PLATTSBURGH — The recent flooding that has impacted the region has had many eyes on homeowners recovering from the devastation. However, the historic event has also impacted the environment for fish, though it could be to the benefit of anglers. Chris Kinney-Hermis, an outdoor enthusiast and fishing department associate at Gander Mountain, shared mixed emotions on the flooding. “The fishing is good,” he enthused. “I caught 18 small mouth yesterday.”

Although fishing conditions are preferable, Kinney-Hermis noted the prevalence is mostly due to the season, rather than the flooding. “Fishing has definitely picked up, mostly due to the warmer weather,” he said. However, the recent flooding will impact the fish themselves, and moderate fishing practices. “The biggest thing that’s going to happen because of the flood is the topography of the bottom of the lake is going to change dramatically ... the fish have more habitat to hang out in with all the flooding,” explained Kinney-Hermis.

For anglers, this means re-learning fishing locations. “Everyone is going to have to re-fish where they’ve been before,” said KinneyHermis. Increased sedimentary deposits also affects the type and prevalence of fish, he noted. “That’s a good thing; it’s also going to change the habitat for the fish and make it better for some,” said Kinney-Hermis, adding current fishing conditions are record-worthy. “These are the glory days of fishing in Plattsburgh. Two weeks ago, my friend caught the biggest sucker that I’ve ever seen in my entire life.” Despite the prime conditions, for some, the flooding has discouraged fishing. “Sometimes our sales don’t represent that 100 percent, because the weather gets people down, and the police have parts of downtown blocked off,” Kinney-Hermis admit-

ted, though stressing “the fishing itself is great.” Despite flooding, Plattsburgh and Lake Champlain, have been increasingly sought out by anglers, and hosting tournaments. This is evidenced by Lake Champlain International’s upcoming fundraiser — the 30th Annual Father ’s Day Derby slated for June 18-20 — which is the biggest event the organization has throughout the year. Eric LaMontagne, an employee for the nonprofit hosting the event, noted that it will not be affected by flooding conditions. “We have no reason to believe that the lake levels over the past few weeks will diminish the quality of the fishing,” said LaMontagne. “As we stand, we have every intention of proceeding as planned with the event. It’s full steam ahead.” (Editor ’s Note: The Rotary International Fishing Classic, however, has been canceled due to the flooding. Details are on page 18.)

Comprehensive plan moving forward Public discussion slated for June 6

By Jeremiah S. Papineau jeremiah@denpubs.com

SARANAC — Development of the town’s comprehensive plan and revitalization strategy is nearing completion. The Town of Saranac Advisory Committee — an ad hoc committee formed from community members and town representatives — is in the process of finalizing the plans but will first hold a community workshop Monday, June 6, at Saranac Town Hall, 3662 State Route 3. The purpose of the workshop will be for residents to hear ideas developed for the town’s proposed May 24, 2011comprehensive plan and revitalization strategy and to provide

input. Councilman Gerald W. Delaney said the committee has been working for the past eight months to develop the plans, which include “a profile of the community as it exists today, a broad vision and set of goals for the future as well as specific actions for the future.” “We followed what community members at our first meeting gave us and where conversations led us and what actions were requested of the town board,” said Delaney. “We’ve had a number of meetings since then and, in those meetings, discussed many aspects.” The plan, said Delaney, addresses issues such as economic revitalization, recreation, community character, improvements to the State Route 3 corridor, housing, infrastructure and the provi-

sion of community services. Further, the plan — if enacted — will serve as a guide for the town in making future decisions about development of the town. “Some of the things we’ve discussed include land uses,” said Delaney. “Not so much zoning, but looking at ways to reestablish a farming community and doing things to support the logging industry.” The proposed comprehensive plan is something long overdue, said Delaney. “We’re really updating a document that’s about 35 years old,” Delaney said of the town’s current comprehensive plan. The public is encouraged to attend the June 6 meeting, which will begin at 6:30 p.m. This will be the final community workshop for residents to provide input before the

proposed plans are brought before the town council for adoption. The council is anticipated to review the plans at their regularly scheduled board meeting in July. “The way residents can best serve the project is by coming in open-minded, listening and commenting,” said Delaney. “People have spent a lot of time working on this project ... this has ended up to be a well-discussed, well-thought out plan steered by the residents.” For more information about the comprehensive plan and revitalization strategy of the June 6 meeting, contact Delaney at 569-7800, project coordinator Melissa McManus at 297-6753 or Andrew Labruzzo from the state Department of State Division of Coastal Resources at 4732460.

likelihood of a burn getting out of control is by limiting its size. “It is best to keep a burn size to a controllable area — 3 to 4 feet around — and add material to keep impact minimal and controlled,” he said. “If the fire gets out of hand, don’t hesitate to call for your local fire department.” Even before striking the match to start a burn, Kostyk said it’s important to notify your local fire department of your plan. “Proper notification of county fire dispatch is a must ... a call can help prevent the possible dispatch of a fire agency to a controlled burn,” said Kostyk.

North Countryman Editorial

Richards should be held accountable for his actions A t first, we wanted Mark Richards booted off the Johnsburg Central School Board of Education for interrupting the free election process and tearing down write-in candidates’ campaign fliers in downtown Johnsburg prior to the May 17 vote. Now, after a public apology, we’d settle for some community service, to show kids that his actions were wrong. Maybe they can learn from his mistake. After all, Richards is no upstart in North Creek. He’s an established community leader, having served on the school board for 11 years. Furthermore, he is a teacher at the Wells Central School. Kids look up to him. As an elected school official, Richards is supposed to look out for the best interest of kids in Johnsburg. Ironically, that was his main excuse for tearing down the campaign fliers; he wanted to prevent the Citizens Budget Committee candidates from

being elected because he said their membership on the school board would be detrimental to the district and the education of its children. Richards’ passion was understandable, but his actions were inexcusable. He did an injustice to all Johnsburg citizens, especially the kids. Perhaps he could have channeled his passion into a more positive, productive and legal manner, such as holding a rally for his fellow board members on the ballot. Fundamentally, when Richards tore down the fliers, he was committing an act of vandalism. The state penal code calls it criminal mischief in the fourth degree, a misdemeanor. Those candidates — Anthony Moro, Carmine Bellotti and David Braley — could have called the police and complained, possibly leading to an arrest. Instead, they took the high road. At the same time, Richards was preventing voters from making their own decisions during the election process. While not running himself, he was trying to make sure the three school board members on the ballot — Erwin Morris, Thomas Ordway and Tara Sears — were re-elected (and they were). These are the kinds of anti-democracy tactics we see in totalitarian regimes,

Thanks for help Junior Girl Scout Troop 4262 would like to give a very special thank you to those who helped during the troop’s recent electronics waste drive. Thanks to Jim Cayea from J&R Salvage on the Angelville Road in Mooers for generously volunteering a truck and big trailer, Normand Jolicoeur from Champlain who also supplied an enclosed trailer to haul our e-waste, Marty McCarthy from Champlain who donated his time and pick-up for our cause and Howard Lamberton of Mooers Forks for letting us use the parking lot. When asked, they did not hesitate with their generous reply. We could not have done it without them, the dads, and everyone else who gave their time and hard work to make this such a success!

not America. It goes against all we are taught in school about right and wrong, freedom and the American way. Richards did not breach an ethical code, according to the school superintendent, although we believe his actions were unethical. And he clearly violated the district’s mission statement: “The mission of Johnsburg Central School is to ensure that all students are given the opportunity to learn in a positive school environment designed to promote academic excellence and to meet individual needs. To fulfill this mission the JCS staff will work together with the community to help students become responsible, independent, lifetime learners.” Those last few words resonate with us. And we’re left to wonder how Richards can dedicate some of his time to ensure that students learn to become “responsible, independent, lifetime learners,” other than say, “Listen to what I say, not what I do.” We accept the apology Richards made during the May 23 school board meeting. And we agree with the board president that Richards regrets his error and there is no reason to dismiss him from the school board … but on one condition. Richards needs to show district students

why his actions were wrong. Moreover, he should teach them that illegal and unethical actions, such as his, have consequences. The lesson here should not be “apologize and all will be forgiven.” That’s not how it works in the real world. Richards should be sentenced, either by the board or voluntarily, to perform community service. There should be some kind of punishment involved, and it should help others at the same time. Above all, the sentence should include direct contact with students — perhaps a school assembly — with an apology directly to the kids, an explanation of actions and regrets, and a civics lesson on the election process and criminal justice. For maximum effect, it could end with state police officers cuffing Richards and leading him off the stage and then transporting him to the site of his community service — picking up trash along Main Street.

Student’s trip to China a learning experience By Patrick Lonergan

Special to Denton Publications

I

t is said that travel broadens the mind. For myself and several other students, parents and teachers who went on the Beijing, China, trip over spring break from school, this statement certainly proved to be true. One of the first things I noticed about Beijing was the lower than anticipated level of security. You might think that in a communist country the security would be “in your face” or even intimidating. The Beijing airport, however, was not much different than an airport here in the states. The security level looked only slightly more advanced because of thermal imaging cameras, but did seem to run more smoothly than our own system. I was particularly surprised when our group was able to take pictures in Tiananmen Square, the largest public open space in the world, a place where 10 years ago, it would be illegal to do so. At one point in time, it was illegal for a United States citizen to even own Chinese money, let alone even to go to that country. Now many of our imported goods come from China and it really is remarkable to see how much that country has opened up. Another thing that seemed to be a constant theme in Beijing was the clash of modern society with ancient structures, such as the Great Wall and the Temple of Heaven. Next to one section of the Great Wall we visited (over 2000 years old) was a huge sign sponsoring the last summer Olympics. This is one thing I thought the town of Ticonderoga and the city of Beijing could relate to, granted their history is a couple thousand years older than ours. The people of Beijing, China struggle to preserve their history even while their city becomes more and more modern. On the trip, our group was able to visit a school called the Beijing Qianmen Foreign Language School (foreign language for them being English, of course), where we were able to talk to Chinese students. Any-

one who has ever looked at education rankings among different countries, knows that American student test scores on average fall far below that of Chinese students. The other thing that is a positive in China is that teachers are seen as heroes. Teachers are never disrespected where as in some of our nation’s schools, teachers are often being sworn at, harassed and even threatened. As you all know, teachers here are also much more likely to be laid off because of our economic system. So it is interesting how our schools differ. One particular aspect of the Chinese school system, however, I found especially unnerving is that they have no, or very little, special education programs. As stated before, I did not feel endangered or threatened while I was in Beijing, China; in fact I felt safer there than in any other city I have ever been. China still holds a one child policy, but the sort of sexism that evolved because of favoring males over females, is starting to fade away. “I have a little girl and my husband and I both love her very much.,” I remember our tour guide, nicknamed “Sunny,” saying to us. For many, China may not feel like a place where they would want to spend their vacation. Yet right now, it is cheaper to go to China than to a place like Italy or Greece, for example, and you would not be disappointed. The American perspective of China is generally negative. Americans like to come up with horror stories to fear or not to visit China. China does have many gray aspects to its countries history, but really are they that much different than some of our own countries dark history? In China education is a privilege, not a right; child offenders are killed and lifestyles are built around tradition and folklore. Whether or not you find these facts to be positive or negative, depends on your opinion, but there is one thing for certain, and I know this may sound cliché but, I think we can really learn from each other.

How to choose and apply your mulch

Healthier cinnamon rolls

ne of the best ways a gardener can increase their success while also decreasing the amount of time spent watering and weeding is through the application of mulch. When applied correctly, mulch prevents water loss from the soil by evaporation, reduces weed growth, prevents weed germination, keeps the soil cooler, prevents soil splashing which in turn prevents soil-borne diseases, and improves soil structure. Mulch can be applied at any time of the year to flower beds, trees, and shrubs. Wood or bark chips are often the mulch of choice for these areas. Shredded wood or bark is attractive and slow to decompose. Some, such as cedar, also deter insects. When applying mulch to the landscape, I always layer either corrugated cardboard or several sheets of newspaper between the soil and the mulch. This helps to choke out weeds, but has the advantage of decomposing over time which allows for my perennials and shrubs to spread. Vegetable garden mulches should be applied after the soil has warmed in the spring. The minimum soil temperature most cool season plants require is 55 degrees F. Warm season crops, such as tomatoes and peppers prefer soil temperatures in the 70s. Mulches insulate the soil. If applied too early, the soil will take longer to warm. Soil temperatures can be more important in determining seed germination and plant growth than air temperatures. If applied after the soil

has warmed, the insulating effect of mulches will maintain a uniform soil temperature, buffer the vegetable’s roots from extreme heat and cool periods. While many people use wood chips to mulch their perennial beds, shrub beds, and trees, it is not the best choice for vegetable gardens. While they do provide good weed control, wood chips have two disadvantages in the vegetable garden. Wood chips take more than one season to break down and during the decomposition process they rob soil of nitrogen. The most common vegetable garden mulches include hay and straw, leaves, and grass clippings. Most gardeners apply a two inch layer of mulch in their gardens. Applying a thinner layer of mulch can actually encourage weed growth. The mulch should be spread evenly and should not apply mulch directly over an area that has just been seeded since mulch can prevent seeds from germinating or suffocate newly germinated seeds. In addition the mulch should be kept 2-3 inches away from vegetables, the trunks of trees, and the base of perennials and shrubs. This will prevent decay caused by wet mulch and insect infestations.

Local woman planning half-marathon in memory of her father Robert ‘Chip’ Hamilton to be honored, pulmonary fibrosis education to be offered by October event By Jeremiah S. Papineau jeremiah@denpubs.com

PERU — When Ruth Hamilton LaClair ’s father, Robert “Chip” Hamilton, passed away, she knew she wanted to do something to remember him. Considering she has always had a passion for running and her father was very supportive of her hobby, she felt it only made sense to put together an event that would combine her love for running with the love for her father. That’s how the first annual Octoberfest Half-Marathon was born. “I’m an avid runner, so essentially I thought of a way to honor my father with something I enjoyed doing,” said LaClair. “And, we discovered there isn’t really much around here in the fall. So, we decided to put together our own half-marathon.” The event was originally intended to be held in time for Fathers Day as a way to honor LaClair ’s father and his recovery from a lung transplant he underwent in October. However, Hamilton suffered complications from the procedure, leading the event to be pushed back. When he passed away in Jan-

uary, the event took a new focus — honoring LaClair ’s father and raising awareness of pulmonary fibrosis, the condition which claimed his life at the age of 64. “Pulmonary fibrosis a lung disease where the lungs themselves become hard and can’t absorb oxygen and distribute it the way they should,” explained LaClair. “And, a lot of people have it but it gets misdiagnosed. That’s why we’re doing this. We hope we can get the word out about it and find a cure.” Though the half-marathon won’t be held until the fall, LaClair is getting the word out early to encourage people to sign up for the inaugural event. “We really want this to be a success so it will honor him the way he deserves,” said LaClair, adding all proceeds from the event will benefit the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation. The first annual Octoberfest HalfMarathon will be held Saturday, Oct. 15, starting at the Peru Volunteer Fire Department on Bear Swamp Road at 9 a.m. The 13.1-mile will take runners throughout Peru’s apple country, ending back at the fire department where awards will be given to the top three finishers of the overall race for men and women. Awards will also be given to the top men and women finishers in the following age groups: 19 and under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69 and 70 plus. All finishers will receive a medal for participation.

The late Robert “Chip” Hamilton and his wife, Patricia, are seen in this photo at last year’s City of Plattsburgh Half-Marathon with their daughter, Ruth Hamilton LaClair, and her husband, David LaClair. Hamilton’s daughter is organizing a half-marathon in her father’s memory, set for this October. Photo submitted

Registration is now open and required prior to the event. Registration will close Thursday, Sept. 1, or when the number of participants reaches 500, whichever comes

first. For more information or to register, visit www.runoctoberfest.com or e-mail runoctoberfest@yahoo.com.

Milfoil war on Chateaugay lakes in jeopardy Foundation seeks continued funding from municipalities

By Jeremiah S. Papineau jeremiah@denpubs.com

DANNEMORA — The town of Dannemora may not be able to continue making good on a pledge to help rid the Chateaugay lakes of a longtime environmental problem. Mary McLean Johnson, president of the Chateaugay Lake Foundation, approached the Dannemora Town Board at its May 25 meeting about restoring funding in the town budget for the foundation. The town has provided $2,500 to the foundation per year for the past three years to assist with removal of Eurasian water milfoil — a nonnative invasive aquatic plant known for clogging boat motors and degrading water quality — from Upper Chateaugay Lake and Lower Chateaugay Lake and the connecting waterway between the two bodies known as “The Narrows.” However, the town will be unable to make its commitment to the foundation given the town’s current financial status, said Town Supervisor Americo “Ves” Pivetta. “There’s no money, so we took it out of the budget,” said Pivetta, who cited the recent closure of the Lyon Mountain Correctional Facility as one of the chief economic concerns for the town.

Tax cap needs plan for mandate relief, officials say By Jeremiah S. Papineau jeremiah@denpubs.com

PLATTSBURGH — The support for both sides of the property tax cap argument are being made known by local officials. The North Country Chamber of Commerce issued a statement last week welcoming the announcement by Gov. Andrew Cuomo and legislative leaders of an agreement on a new property tax cap for the state. In the statement, chamber of commerce president Garry Douglas called the legislation — which will cap property tax increases for local governments and school districts at 2 percent or the rate of inflation, whichever is less — “a remarkable advance for homeowners and for job creation in the North Country and across the state.” “It’s a firm cap that will have a very real impact in terms of controlling spending and taxes going

forward,” stated Douglas. “As the governor recently pointed out in Lake Placid, property taxes have become the biggest impediment to growth and prosperity in New York. We thank the governor for his extraordinary leadership, and the legislature for listening to their constituents.” Douglas further stated the chamber of commerce and its allies across the state will now turn their attention to the need for “meaningful state mandate relief” as a follow-up to the property tax cap. However, not all are convinced the property tax cap is in the best interest of taxpayers as proposed and that mandate relief must be decided upon before legislation is agreed upon by the Assembly and the Senate. County administrator Michael Zurlo expressed his concern with the legislation during a regular meeting of the county legislature May 25, calling it “a very emotional issue.” The tax cap, said

Zurlo, must include “meaningful mandate relief” in order to be successful. “Mandate relief is not a part of this program,” said Zurlo, referring to the most recent version of the cap proposed. “Supporters of the program indicate that this tax cap will lead to mandate relief. I certainly hope that’s the case.” The majority of expenditures that are borne by local governments, said Zurlo, are ones mandated by the state. In addition with limited revenues and “less than stellar sales tax receipts” in the last three years, a property tax cap without mandate relief will cost services and jobs, the county administrator warned. “When revenues go down and expenses increase, that’s an equation that does not balance,” said Zurlo. “And, to get that to balance, there’s going to be services within this county that are no longer going to be affordable.” The New York State Associa-

BEEKMANTOWN — Emergency medical technicians from the Beekmantown Volunteer Fire Department and EMT of CVPH were recently honored for saving the life of 4-year-old Aiden Fournier. Fournier stopped breathing the night of March 19. Emergency responders answered the call which resulted in Fournier being transported to CVPH Medical Center and eventually Albany Medical Center. Fournier ’s condition was reportedly due to a combination bacterial pneumonia and human metapneumo virus.

tion of Counties has called on state leaders to assume the $2 billion county share of Medicaid for the 57 counties outside New York City, which is a stance Zurlo said he wholeheartedly supports. “If the state took away our largest mandate — Medicaid — we could not only cap your taxes, we could reduce them in Clinton County by 60 percent,” Zurlo continued, adding the majority of states in the union have already done so. “In fact, only nine of a myriad of state mandates consume 112 percent of the county tax levy.” Under a property tax cap, Zurlo said the legislature would work “very hard” throughout its budget process to balance the burden on taxpayers with the services provided by the county. “But, the services we provide, I can tell you now, are going to be affected and the people who provide those services are going to be affected,” said Zurlo.

June 4, 2011

Each year, we celebrate June Dairy Month to honor America’s dairy farm families and the wholesome, nutritious milk they produce. The North Country has a long and proud dairy farming heritage. Dairy farming is the number one agricultural business in Northern New York. The fertile Champlain and St. Lawrence valleys and temperate climate are ideal for growing forages like alfalfa and grass that make up the majority of a dairy cow’s diet. Dairy farmers work hard every day to bring you fresh, great tasting, wholesome milk products. Almost all dairies in Clinton, Essex and Franklin County are familyowned, and are active members of their communities. Farm families take pride in feeding their neighbors and maintaining natural resources. Farmers recognize the importance of preserving the land where they live and work, protecting the air and water they share with the community, and providing the best care for their cows–the lifeblood of their business.

The North Country has an amazing diversity of dairy farms–from very large, modern dairies with over a thousand cows to small, grass-based organic dairies that have taken a fresh look at simpler practices of the past. Regardless, most dairy farmers, like other business owners, are modernizing and improving their efficiency in order to continue to support their families and provide high-quality and affordable dairy products.

Now more than ever, we need to support and appreciate the local farmers that continue to work the land. Farmers are suffering from increasing costs of feed, fuel and transportation–all necessary to produce milk. Regardless of the adversities, they continue to keep our local landscapes scenic, support our local economy and maintain the rural quality of life that we all enjoy in Northern New York. - Peter Hagar, Agriculture Educator, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Clinton County

Rotary International Fishing Classic canceled High waters, debris on Lake Champlain avert annual fishing event PLATTSBURGH — For the first time in 26 years, the Rotary Club of Plattsburgh has had to cancel its annual Rotary International Fishing Classic, which was scheduled for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, June 3 - 5, 2011. Rotary Fishing Classic chair Bonnie Black said the Rotary club called off the annual

fishing tourney due to the dangerous high water level and large objects floating or submerged on Lake Champlain. “This spring’s unprecedented high lake level coupled with debris throughout the Lake Champlain basin is a dangerous situation,” said Black. “The Rotary club has decided it would be better to call off the tournament than risk harm to any anglers who would be participating in the tourney this year.” The Plattsburgh Rotary Club will be crediting anyone whose charge card was processed, mailing a refund to those who

paid in cash at their outlets or whose checks have already cleared the bank and returning any unprocessed checks via mail. Rotarians will be meeting with all registration outlets to assure all funds are processed through the Plattsburgh Rotary Club and then returned to potential anglers. Black said she hopes anglers will return for next year ’s annual Rotary International Fishing Classic, which will be held June 1-2, 2012. For more information, call the Rotary Fishline toll-free 1-877-519-7942 or e-mail info@plattsburghrotary.org.

Plattsburgh earns Section VII team golf title, Ried rallies to make states By Keith Lobdell

keith@denpubs.com SARANAC INN — After 35 holes, nothing had been decided between the top two golfers in Section VII in 2011. AuSable Valley’s John Hickey and Saranac Lake’s Michael Phelan stepped up to the 18th tee tied, entering the final hole at the Saranac Inn Golf and Country Club. Both went shot-for-shot down the fairway and toward the green, where Hickey took the advantage with a close approach, while Phelan was left with a long putt. “I looked at the putt from three angles and had a great read on it,” Phelan said. “It was the longest read that I had all day.” In Phelan’s own words, “I had a little too much speed on it, and it didn’t drop.” That left Hickey with a short putt for the win. “My heart was racing,” Hickey said about the moments before he drained his only putt on the 18th hole, capturing the 2011 individual title by one stroke with a two-day total of 151. “My goal was to try and get inside of him with each shot,” Hickey said of the final hole. “I left it a little short on the green, but it is better on the 18th to be short than long.” Phelan trailed by six strokes after the first day of team play, which was won by Plattsburgh, who beat the Red Storm by eight strokes, 317-325. Phelan, who opened play with an 80, fired the low round of the tournament with an even-par 72, at one point being two-under par through 14 holes. “He gave me a run for my money,” Hickey said. “He played an awesome round and he put the pressure on me.” “I came out to play my own game and not worry about what others were doing,” Phelan said. “I knew that if I played my game, I could get back into contention.” Hickey and Phelan (152) will represent Section VII at the NYSPHSAA golf championships this weekend, along with Plattsburgh’s Ethan Votraw (158), Northeastern Clinton’s Nolan Reid (158), Saranac Lake’s Patt McHugh (159), Elizabethtown-Lewis’

(and MVAC top golfer) Tyler White (160), Plattsburgh’s Connor Benoit (162), Plattsburgh’s Gus Rietsema (163) and Beekmantown’s MacCullen Cope (166). Saranac Lake golfer Matt Clark pared the opening playoff hole to earn the alternate spot on the Section VII team over Plattsburgh’s Lucas Wood. For White, not many thought that he would fare well after carding an 11 on the opening hole of day two, but the Lion golfer

fired a 70 in the remaining 17 holes to finish sixth. “Leaving the first hole, my only thought was that I was going to hole out on my next shot,” White, who birdied the par-three third, said. “I couldn’t do any worse than I had just done on that hole, so I guess that it got me going.” For Votraw and McHugh, this will be the fourth time that they have represented their section at the states, while McHugh being a

former sectional champion. “It feels pretty good to be going back,” McHugh said. “I played well and didn’t take any big numbers here.” “I am really happy to go back,” Votraw said. “I am playing pretty consistently right now. I am a little weak in the short game, but I will work on that through the week.” Hickey and Phelan return to the state tournament for the third time, while Rietsema will return for the second time.

Plattsburgh High’s Ethan Votraw advanced to his fourth state tournament with a 158.

Bugs and bats

I

t has finally happened. After a half century of tromping and paddling throughout the vast recesses of the Adirondacks, I was finally forced to throw in the towel. I felt like a battered boxer, but I probably looked more like a puffy, cranberry muffin. It happened just last weekend, while I was fishing on the small ponds near Lake Clear. With a blizzard of buzzing of mosquitoes in hot pursuit, I was actually chased from the woods. Never before have I experienced bugs so thick, so ravenous and in such abundance. The buzzing was incessant and there was no escape. I was forced to give up. Mind you, I was prepared, sporting a full arsenal of bug dopes, sprays and other concoctions. I wore long pants, which were tucked into tall, rubber boots and my head net was covered by the tight collar of a turtleneck shirt. I had taken proper precautions to insure that no patch of skin was available, beyond the fingers I had cut from cotton gloves to allow me to fish. I sprayed on plenty of bug dope, swatted when I could and even considered drinking a bit at the height of the battle. I knew whiskey wouldn’t help, but I figured it couldn’t hurt either as I already had a buzz going on. After absorbing as much torment as one could possibly bear, I decided to call it a day. With the cloud of mosquitoes in hot pursuit, I stashed my

canoe along the shoreline and turned tail for the trailhead, about a twenty-minute hike. A buzzing grey cloud accompanied me on the frenetic foray that followed. Mosquitoes filled the car as I quickly slid in through a small crack in the door. Although fully encapsulated by glass and metal, I was still under fire. There were nearly as many mosquitoes on the inside of the windshield as there were on the outside. With a lingering scent of Adirondack Aftershave, (Old Woodsman) tantalizing my nostrils, I hightailed it for home. When I returned to retrieve the canoe, early the following morning, the woods were eerily quiet. It was cool and damp, and very few bugs were in the air. Since I was dressed accordingly, I figured taking a few quick trolls across the pond would be in order. I made a few passes, without a tap. But as soon as the sun was fully in the sky, I remembered why I came. Quickly, I packed up and paddled to shore, shouldered the canoe and beat a path to the car, before the full squadron could assemble. I’ve battled the flying nuisances of the Adirondacks for many years, including black flies, No-See-Ums, deer flies and horse flies and an assortment of bees and wasps. I’ve never been forced to back down, until now, and I wonder why? A number of factors may be at work. I’m older now, but obviously not much wiser, or I wouldn’t still be subjecting myself to such

abuse. I may no longer be thick-skinned, simply thick headed. However, I believe the already abundant rains, combined with the winter ’s significant snow pack and the accompanying flooding, has served to raise the threshold. Certainly, the availability of breeding grounds has been increased, with lakes, streams and rivers all overflowing their banks to create vernal pools of stagnant water that are ideal for mosquitoes. I also wonder if the region may already be beginning to see the effects of White Nose Syndrome, (WNS) a mysterious disease responsible for a significant decline in bat populations throughout the Northeast. It has since spread to seventeen states and four Canadian provinces. Bats are a primary predator of night-flying insects and they devour billions of them every night. Some species, including the Little Brown Bat, eat 500 to 1,000 mosquitoes per hour. Current research indicates the cumulative population decline of little brown bats in New York state is now estimated at nearly 95 percent. They have nearly been eradicated. Scientist claim that the extinction of some species "is possible." The removal of such a sizable population of insect predators from may be result in an explosion of flies, beetles, moths and mosquitoes. Such a significant decline in bat populations will likely trigger a ripple effect throughout the food chain. Insects will be the overall winners, but other species that feed on bats such as hawks, owls, raccoons and skunks will suffer. Already, scientists have observed negative disruptions in the ecosystem, as bats affected by WNS are forced to leave the caves earlier in the spring, to search for food. Such was the case last spring, when bats were observed flying erratically at midday, near Chapel Pond in St. Hu-

Adirondack Outdoors • North Countryman - 25

The Little Brown Bat, pictured above, can eat 500 to 1,000 mosquitos per hour. Unfortunately, the bat has all but been eradicated from New York because of a fungus that attacks the bats during their winter hybernation in caves. The outbreak is known as white-nose syndrome.

berts. The hunger weakened bats fell as easy prey to the returning peregrine falcons, and the resident ravens. As usual, the plight of bats, and other such species, is of little concern to most until such time as it begins to affect our pocketbooks. However, that time may soon arrive as a recent study published in Science estimates that insect-eating bats provide a significant pest-control service, saving the U.S. agricultural industry at least $3 billion a year. For now, all we have to worry about is being chased from the woods; but possibly, when insecticides are necessary to ensure the delivery of our fresh produce, we will begin to pay attention.
