Plattsburgh City Beach set to open June 30 PLATTSBURGH — The City of Plattsbur gh Recr eation Department plans to open Plattsbur gh City Beach to the public Thursday, June 30. The beach was opened for swimming lessons offered by the town and city r ecreation departments June 27, with more than two dozen childre n attending. The overall opening of the beach is later this year , due to water levels for Lake C hamplain o nly r ecently r eceding t o l ess th an 1 00 feet, according to Steve Peters, superintendent of the city recreation department. For the past several weeks, all entrances to the beach have been closed, with the parking lot submerged, as well as many portions of the Heritage T r ail. The lake was, at one time, above the sea wall and flooding areas up to and around the Crete Memorial Civic Center. “Our staff and crews from the Public Works Department

have done an incr edible job in a short amount of time cleaning up debris and r epairing er oded ar eas,” said Peters. “I am confident we can provide a great beach for the community this summer.” Due to the flooding, the swimming are a has been moved from its original spot in front of the vendor building to an area near the new bathhouse and the Heritage T rail. As the summer progresses and the water continues to recede, the swim ar ea will migrate back towar d its original location. Plattsburgh City Beach is located at 4 Beach Road and will be open daily from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., weather permitting, through Monday, Sept. 5. Entrance is free for city and town residents and $5 per day for all others.

Graduates told failure will be part of life How it’s handled will determine futures, valedictorian says

The Plattsbur gh State Fieldhouse was filled June 23 with nearly 100 graduating members of the Class of 201 1, their friends and families as selected keynote speakers addr essed the school’s annual commencement exercises. Valedictorian Elaina SanchezFreeman, in her address to her fellow graduates, divulged a secr et that her aunt once told her.

ELLENBURG DEPOT — The past has brought the graduating students at Northern Adirondack Central School to where they are today. That was the message delivered at the school’s annual commencement exercises June 24 by valedictorian Stephen W itkiewicz, who called graduation a time not only to look toward the futur e, but also one to contemplate the past and the memories shared. “We can all r emember our first day of kindergarten. Butterflies filled our stomachs

as we nervously left mommy and daddy behind and entered the world of school, one that would occupy most of the rest of our lives — until tonight,” said Witkiewicz. The young friends he would play hide and seek with and sit next to on the bus would one day become the close friends he knows today, said W itkiewicz. And, even though high school included the inevitable “drama,” he said, that is something that won’t matter in the future. “In 20 years, all the good times we shar ed will be much more important than any stupid he said-she said drama that seems like the end See NAC, continued on page 11

S

ame-sex marriage has long been a matter of debate and whether you like it or not, in the State of New York, it’s now legal. What doesn’t sit well with us is not whether or not gay couples can now enter the legal state of matrimony . It’s the bigoted comments of Clinton County Legislator Sam Trombley r eportedly made during last week’s Clinton County Legislature meeting. During last week’s meeting, Trombley was quoted as saying, "I'm surprised the health department has not come out against this because we are going to have an HIV epidemic if this passes," referring to same-sex marriage legislation. An HIV epidemic because a man can marry another man and a woman can marry another woman? W ow. Mr . T rombley, how ridiculous is that? Apparently, very, because the following day Trombley r eportedly stood behind his

comments saying “This is my opinion, and if people do not agree, that's just the way it is." Don’t get us wr ong — we’r e all for fr eedom of speech afforded by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. It’s what gives us the right as journalists to do what we do. And, for those who have for gotten, her e’s how the First Amendment reads: “Congress shall make no law especting r an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exer cise ther eof; or abridging the fr eedom of speech, or of the pre ss; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” Freedom of speech may be a right, but for Pete’s sake, exer cise a little intelligence if you’re going to open your mouth. W ill the cases of HIV pr oportionally incr ease with the number of gay marriages? No. Why? It’s simple. Even if HIV was solely spr ead by homosexual intercourse, a little piece of paper saying two men or two women may be together

until death do they part, will have no effect. Gay men and women will still have sex just as they have since the beginning of time. The right to now marry won’t change that. And, since when has being monogamous with a partner — any partner — incr eased the likelihood of transmitting sexual diseases like HIV? Whether you’r e in favor of gay marriage or not, or even for or against homosexuality in general, the flat out discrimination of any section of the population — especially from the perspective of a publically-elected of ficial in a public for um wher e that person is representing har d-working taxpayers — is just that: discrimination. Mr. Trombley, if you’re against homosexuality, that’s your prerogative. But, when you publically degrade people you’ve sworn an oath to represent — yes, we’re sure there’s at least a few people in your jurisdiction who are gay — then you’ve done nothing but a disservice to them and shoved your foot square into your mouth. Plain and simple.

Ignorance at the county level (This is a letter submitted addr essed to Clinton County Legislator Sam Trombley after his r ecent comments on same-sex marriage causing a potential HIV epidemic.) Dear Mr. Trombley: Your comments r egarding the r elationship between gay marriage and its potential to fuel an AIDS epidemic are an embarrassment to your constituency and to elected officials, both locally, state and nationwide. Your ignorance poses a larger threat to the health of the collective citizens of Clinton County than does any sexually-transmitted disease, and your presence as chair of the Clinton County's Human Services Committee is offensive and you should be removed immediately. Hopefully, your peers at the Clinton County Legislative Of fice will publicly repudiate your comments regardless of their personal views on the issue of gay marriage. Please seek some basic HIV -related education befor e you further humiliate yourself with your ignorant public comments. Patrick O'Flaherty

Would legalizing gay marriage necessarily risk incr easing the spread of AIDS? Remember, it’s promiscuity that spreads AIDS, not sexual orientation. Heterosexuals get HIV too and, even to them, it can be spr ead by sexual contact. The right to marry the person he or she loved most, whether opposite or same gender , would pr ovide an incentive to keep that marriage, in order not to lose that eternally treasured state. Pre-maritally, for congenital heter osexuals, as for congenital gays or lesbians, promiscuity is about equally high. It’s after marriage that

When we asked people on our Facebook pages what they thought about T rombley's comments, responses included “Ignorance is the only wor d that comes to mind;” “He doesn't even know when to hold his tongue. That is a life skill two year olds have;” and “Sounds like it may be time for a new county legislator.” Whether you agr ee with that last statement (and there are people on our own staff who would debate that suggestion), we have some words of advice for Mr. Trombley. Sam, when it comes to stating your opinion, we’re behind you 100 per cent. When it comes to presenting your opinion as fact yet based on zero scientific evidence or common sense, you’re on your own.

This editorial is the collaborative opinion of a board comprised of Thom Randall, Fred Herbst, Lou V arricchio, Keith Lobdell, Jeremiah Papineau, Andy Flynn and John Gereau. Comments may be dir ected to denpubs@denpubs.com.

monogamous behavior incr eases, strongly protected by legal status that guarantees such rights as hospital visits, and shar ed property ownership (with inheritability), and by the sanction that religion can give it. Without the universal right to marry for tr ue love (without first appealing for the state's appr oval of one's desir ed partner ’s gender), and its r ecognition thr oughout the state, how can we know that pr omiscuity, and with it AIDS, wouldn’t drop just as much for homosexually oriented people? If increasing monogamy then, why wouldn’t legalized gay marriage decrease, not increase, the spread of AIDS? In NY State, when gays couldn’t legally marry , the pre-marital state was all they had; now, by July 24, a new chance emerges. David E. Manwell Beekmantown

ciety with the same open arms that we pr ofess to celebrate on the 4th. Something so offensive to many of us as burning the American flag, is a freedom we must all be willing to accept and defend. Let’s face it we all want control over our lives, actions and pr operty. While your elected of ficials legislate what freedoms we can exercise and what we are not free to do, it’s our culture , over time, that resolves these inequities within our bor ders and seeks to provide a level playing field, but it does take time for these changes to take root. Look back at how blacks were once treated or Japanese Americans during World War II. By today’s standar ds many may be appalled by those actions, but had you lived through that period first hand, you might have a different perspective. So when you’re celebrating this July 4th or watching a magnificent fireworks display remember this, freedom is as much about your personal fr eedoms as it is about tolerance, understanding and r espect for others who also long to be free. Life is so short and fleeting is it worth fighting and str essing out today over something that in a few short years may end up being consider ed common place? Let’s make certain the battles we wage are in the defense of fre edom and not just the opposition to change. Dan Alexander is publisher and owner of Denton Publications.

his weekend we will be celebrating our nation’s independence. Independence Day r ecognizes the home of the brave and land of the fre e on the birthday of the United States of America and the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. It’s a day of picnics, parades, a night of concerts and fireworks, and a reason to fly the American flag. But what does “independence” really mean to each of us today? Is it just an extra long holiday weekend full of fun and fir eworks or do we take time to appreciate the sacrifices of our forefathers remembering their bravery , service and commitment to fight for and expand fr eedoms for all Americans? The freedoms we enjoy today continue to be r eaffirmed and r enewed throughout our 235 year history thr ough wars, civil strife, and political victories. Our nation continues to evolve and r edefine the word “independence,” but like most things in this country there always seems to be more than one side to its definition. Is “independence,” merely the fact that we control our own bor ders and ar e not governed by a for eign nation or is “independence” more about the freedoms provided by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights through our society and cultur e her e in America?

Handling the pesky Japanese beetles

L

ast week, I wr ote about two common beetle pests that plague our gar den. My main focus of the article was rose chafers. This week I’ll focus on the other pest — Japanese beetles. Like their name implies, the beetles are from Japan and wer e accidentally intr oduced ar ound 1912 in a shipment of iris. In their native country, the beetles ar e controlled by natural predators and diseases, not pr esent in the U.S. The adult Japanese beetles are easy to identify with their bright, metallic green head and shiny copper -colored back. They ar e oval-shaped and about 15 millimeters long and 10 millimeters wide. The adult beetles appear in early July and can usually be seen munching the leaves of many shrubs and trees through mid-August. Leaves that have been eaten by Japanese beetles ar e skeletonized, which give them a lacy appearance. The larvae are fat, white grubs found in the soil in the fall and spring. The gr ubs feed on the r oots of grass plants and can cause extensive damage to lawns. While the adults are clumsy fliers, they can travel up to two miles in searc h of their favorite plants - which include raspberries, r oses, grapes, ornamental maples, beans, apples, pears, and many other fruit trees. Like rose chafers, Japanese beetles ar e difficult to control with sprays. No insecticide can be used

on a plant in flower as this kills the pollinating insects such as bees. Some r eport that catnip, chives, garlic, and tansy are natural repellents, as ar e the r emains of dead beetles. These methods do have limited effectiveness. One of the most effective control methods is to handpick the beetles. While this sounds like a daunting task, handpicking can be quite simple. The beetles tend to dro p off of the plant’s branches when disturbed. You can catch several beetles at the same time by filling a pan with soapy water, holding it under the plant and gently shaking the plant. The beetles simply fall off into the water . The soap br eaks the water tension, allowing the beetles to dr own. But, do wait a few hours befor e dumping out the pan of drowning beetles to make sure they have all died. One control method to avoid is the beetle traps sold in many stores. Research performed by many universities has shown that the pher omone traps attract more beetles to a property than they catch. In essence, you are sending the beetles a message to come eat in your yard. If you have a large property (several acres in size) you can use the traps to draw the beetles away from your gardens.

How to start a walking group

I

t is no secret that walking is a great form of exer cise. Some people love to go at it alone, but if you’d like to have some company, why not start a walking gr oup? Not only will you be doing something good for yourself, those that join you will also r eap rewards fr om possible weight loss, incr eased cardiovascular health, improved mood and more. Aside fr om the health benefits, walking in a group can offer you safety, socialization, accountability , friendship, and motivation. To get a walking gr oup started, just start spr eading the wor d. T alk it up amongst your friends, family , coworkers, and neighbors. You may be pleasantly surprised at the response. Once you’ve recruited your walking buddies, host a kickof f meeting to gather everyone’s contact information. An email list is a gr eat way to stay in contact and send out friendly r eminders. You should discuss when and where to meet, distances and routes to be walked, speed of walk, and what to do in case of bad weather.

Once your gr oup is established you may want to find ways to maintain and boost motivation. Y ou could name your gr oup and create a logo for T shirts, enter charity events, or set gr oup goals. You can even start a little challenge within your gr oup. In my corporate wellness pr ograms, I incorporate a walking challenge where everyone wears a pedometer . Whoever takes the most steps during a given week wins a prize. You could do something similar or just have everyone in the group add up the amount of time they have individually spent walking during the week and see who comes out on top. So, while walking is gr eat for your health, it is also a gr eat way to build friendships and inspir e others, so get out ther e, get moving, and enjoy this nice weather while it lasts!

Cancer can be beaten says Relay for Life speaker Riley Cushing By Jeremiah S. Papineau jeremiah@denpubs.com

MORRISONVILLE — When Riley Cushing was diagnosed with leukemia thr ee years ago, it was something that he never saw coming. The Mooers teenager looked out at the crowd at this year’s Relay for Life June 17, as he shared his personal story of battling cancer. Cushing said he would never forget the day “everything changed for me.” “I was in school and I had this stomachache, so I went to the nurse and she called my mom,” said Riley. Riley said his mother came to get him and take him to the doctor ’s office, where it was believed he had an appendicitis. Doctors performed a series of tests before referring him to the hospital. “Something was not quite right,” said Riley. Riley and his family went home to await the test results. Eventually, they received a call asking them to bring Riley back to the hospital for even more tests. It was a lot of waiting, said Riley. “Finally, doctors came and told me my spleen was enlarged and my blood platelet count was 11,000, which was danger ously low,” said Riley. “All this meant nothing to me. I just knew my stomach hurt.” Eventually, d octors s poke w ith R iley’s

Clinton County

Same-sex marriage remarks spark controversy

By Jeremiah S. Papineau jeremiah@denpubs.com

PLATTSBURGH — The local community is still in shock and awe of comments r eportedly made by Clinton County Legislator Samuel J. T rombley, Area2, at a Clinton County Legislature meeting last week. According to the Press-Republican, the 74-year -old Republican r epresentative fr om Ellenburg made comments during the June 22 meeting that wer e published in the daily newspaper the following day. When the issue of the state appr oving same-sex marriage legislation was br ought up during the

meeting, Trombley was said to have made his position on the matter known, being quoted as saying, “I’m surprised the health department has not come out against this because we ar e going to have an HIV epidemic if this passes ... [The health department is] always complaining about tobacco and smoking, I’m surprised they didn’t say anything about this.” The comments, which Trombley confirmed he made in the June 24 edition of the Press-Republican, were made just days before same-sex marriage was legalized by the New York State Legislature and Governor Andrew M. Cuomo. Several attempts wer e made

by Denton Publications to reach Trombley for comment, though Trombley did not r eturn phone calls as of T uesday afternoon. Clinton County Legislatur e Chairman James R. Langley Jr ., Area-7, also declined comment on the matter. Regardless, Trombley’s comments sparked a fir estorm of controversy in the community , with comments on both the Press-Republican website and Facebook pages for Denton Publications in response to the legislator ’s position. Carrie Clark of Plattsbur gh wrote on the Facebook page for the ‘burgh, stating “Ignorance is the only wor d that comes to mind,” r eferring to T rombley’s

comments. Brian Rascoe Baker , also of Plattsbur gh, wr ote “What’s even mor e horrifying than Mr. Trombley’s putrid public comment is the fact that ther e are people out ther e who will buy into his paranoid, homophobic theories.” Others, like Mike Kelly of Plattsburgh, have encouraged residents to attend the next regularly scheduled meeting of the legislature, to voice their opinion for or against T rombley’s public comments. The legislature will next meet Wednesday, July 13, beginning at 7 p.m. Meetings are held on the second floor of the Clinton County Government Center , 137 Margaret St.

Essex County

Occupancy tax passes through hearing stage By Keith Lobdell

keith@denpubs.com

ELIZABETHTOWN — The path has been cleared for the Essex County Boar d of Supervisors to continue a 3 percent occupancy tax for three more years. Only one member of the public commented during the June 27 public hearing on the topic, which was tagged as pr oposed Local Law No. 2 of 2011. The tax took ef fect Jan. 1, 2000 and was continued in 2002, 2005 and 2008. Margaret Bartley of the Elizabethtown Chamber of Commer ce commented on the proposed local law , asking if mor e money from the occupancy tax could be funneled back to local chambers. “While we realize that Lake Placid generates much of the bed tax money, the ability of the Lake Placid Chamber to pr omote businesses in other towns, such as ours, is limited,” Bartley said. “Having our website or an occasional public event listed on their website, has little ef fect on our businesses and is a poor return for the money our lodg-

ing owners collect.As you prepare to extend the bed tax, I’d like you to consider giving $1,000 of bed tax money back to each town that collects the tax.” County vice-chairman and North Elba Supervisor Roby Politi said that the county did not handle the occupancy tax money and that the Visitor ’s Bureau was responsible for that. “The money goes directly to the visitor ’s bureau for the distribution of the funds,” Politi said. “ Bartley said that she would get in touch with the Regional Of fice on Sustainable Tourism (ROOST), to which pr esident Jim McKenna said she would be welcomed. “We should talk, because we do have pro grams in place,” McKenna said. Moriah Supervisor T om Scozzafava said that he was pleased with how the money was used. “I think that the money is well-distributed for the marketing of the entire county,” he said. “Mor e goes to places like Lake Placid because that is the spark plug for the county in terms of tourism.” Chesterfield Supervisor Gerald Morr ow

said that other counties are now duplicating what has happened in Essex County. “Other counties that said that they would never have a bed tax are now following our lead because they see how well it works,” Morrow said. Schroon Supervisor Cathy Moses added that the occupancy tax also lifts a weight off the county taxpayers. “This takes this money off the taxpayers,” Moses said. “This is a huge bill that is no longer paid through the budget.” Following the public hearing, the supervisors held the monthly ways and means committee meeting, wher e several r esolutions were passed to the full board, including the use of county transportation as free shuttles for the Champlain Bridge cer emonies in the fall, a resolution of appreciation to the DEC and Joe Martens for his assistance in allowing municipal br ush burning, and a resolution to investigate the possibility of adding information to the county tax bills about the amount of tax dollars that are used specifically for state-mandated costs.

Students bond as they begin next chapter in life By Jeremiah S. Papineau jeremiah@denpubs.com

CHAZY — The lessons learned in their time at Chazy Central Rural School will be ones members of the Class of 2011 will carry with them thr oughout the r est of their lives, said senior Astrid Kempainen. That was the message Kempainen gave during the school’s 93r d annual commencement exercises June 23 as she served as this year ’s featured student speaker. Kempainen addressed the audience, reflecting on the time she and her peers spent at CCRS and their successes along the way . Though graduation is what Kempainen considered her class’ “final goodbye,” she noted it was “not a melancholy day.” “It is a day of celebration, a day of successes, a day of r ecognizing not just our class as a whole, but also of individual feats and accomplishments,” she said. “Whether going off to college, entering the workforce, or joining the military, everyone has something to be proud of.” What Kempainen said she was particularly proud of was how each of the 43 students in her school’s graduating class was able to stand out by being their own person, yet still get along well with their classmates. “There ar e so many dif ferent types of people in our class with a vast array of interests, hobbies, activities, music, entertainment, and ways of dr ess,” said Kempainen. “We have always been able to get along. Despite obvious dif ferences, when put in a gr oup with people who wer e not our friends, we wer e able to have a good time with whatever we wer e accomplishing.” However, getting to that point took

complish a lot, because everyone wanted to contribute and wanted to have a voice in making decisions. This new r ealization is wonderful, but at the same time, extremely frustrating. Why couldn’t we have figured this out befor e? Why did we wait until our senior year to r ealize how much better it is to interact with everyone?” The r ealization has also been bittersweet, said Kempainen, as it has come at a time when she and many of her classmates will continue on their paths, but in separate directions. That hit her most when the school celebrated Class Day , and Kempainen realized it was one of the last times she would be with all the members of her class. The thought left her in tears, she said. “However, having this str ong emotion showed how much you all mean to me and how much you have made my high school career an enjoyable one,” she said as she looked out at her classmates. Though the futur e holds uncertainty , there is mor e to look forrar d to than be afraid of, Kempainen said. “I am sure there will be plenty of horrible days, and days filled with tears, but I firmly believe that they will be overshadowed by the good moments with new memories that we will hold very close,” she said. “It has been said that, every accomplishment starts with the decision to try. It is the will to practice and work hard that brings people further than natural talent. I have seen the effort that every one of you put in our senior projects, and I know that if that same passion and willpower is applied to life, everyone will go far.”

If he wasn’t sur e what to do, he asked for help. This confidence to not be embarrassed by asking questions gained him much respect in the eyes of his pr ofessors.” “If you ar e embarrassed to ask for help, don’t be.

High school memories by the numbers By Jeremiah S. Papineau jeremiah@denpubs.com

PLATTSBURGH — When it came to thinking about her time spent at Saranac Central School, it was a matter of counting the minutes for Kayla Brooks. Brooks, who served as valedictorian of this year ’s senior class, addressed her 140 fellow graduates during the school’s annual commencement exercises June 24 at the Plattsburgh State Fieldhouse, breaking their time spent in high school down into some serious numbers. During the past four years, Br ooks’ class was r equired to attend 720 days of school, which she br oke down into 17,280 minutes between class periods, 6,480 periods of class amounting to 259,200 minutes of class time. “Some of you slept thr ough

some or most of that. Some of you watched the clock for quite a few of those 259,000 minutes. Some of you may have actually learned something, which is pr obably a positive thing,” said Brooks. “The r eason I’ve decided to tell you these things isn’t because I wanted you to listen to me rambling off numbers and facts, but because the past four years ar e four years I don’t think we should let ourselves forget,” she added, noting the time they’ve spent in high school is a bittersweet memory. When reflecting on moving onto their next chapter in life, Br ooks said she was r eminded of the old adage“When one door closes, another one opens.” That saying, she said, is one she doesn’t totally agree with. “If we allow ourselves to shut this door completely, we won’t be able to learn from our experiences for the future,” said Brooks. And, when it comes to the future, the possibilities ar e endless, said Brooks. Though some may say high school can be the best time of one’s life, Br ooks feels the best is yet to come. “While high school was awesome, I’d like to think ther e are bigger things for all of us,” she said. During her speech, Br ooks also

credited those along the way who have helped mold her and her fellow students into the young men and women they are today. “I do want to thank our families for giving us each a house to go home to, our friends for giving us shoulders to lean on, and to the faculty and administrators of our school for making each year enjoyable or bearable,” said Br ooks. “The past years would not have been the same without your amazing guidance, dedication and friendship.” Salutatorian Maur een Pellerin shared a similar vision in her speech, noting how the days of their times spent at Saranac Central, dating back to kinder garten, and the people in their lives have prepared them for this moment and for the future. “Since the first day of kindergarten we have been learning, growing, and changing. Even in those early school days of r ecess, show and tell, and nap time, we were r eally learning valuable life lessons,” said Pellerin. “As we start the next chapter in our lives, in a way, it is similar to that first day of kindergarten when we were placed in a completely dif ferent environment — unsur e of what to do, or who to be. But now we have

a strong foundation given to us by our par ents, teachers, and friends that will hold us up as we embark on the rest of our journey.” As Pellerin and her peers move on, embarking on a life after high school, now is the time for each of them to gr ow and blossom, she said, leaving their mark upon the world. “New adventur es and endless possibilities await us, but as we

continue on our journey we need to remember that the learning doesn’t stop here, and we must continue to build upon this foundation started on that very first day of kindergarten,” she said. “As we leave Saranac High School and go out into the world, we must not forget our roots and we must remember it is always best to hold hands and stick together.”

Speaker

Fadden, a North Country native, is a widely-published illustrator and professional artist credited for having “strong roots in the oral history of his Mohawk heritage.” Fadden’s father , John, and mother, Eva, worked as teachers and artists, and his grandfather, the late Ray Fadden, founded the Six Nations Indian Museum in Onchiota. Most r ecently, Fadden illustrated “When the Shadbush Blooms,” a children’s book written by Carla Messinger and Susan Katz, and contributed images for the Discovery Channel pr ogram “How The W est Was Lost: Always The

However, it wasn’t until this past May when the center was first used for a public presentation, then by Don Papson, founding president of the North Country Underground Railroad Historical Association. Papson gave a discussion titled "Noadiah Moore: Freedom's Herald,” which focused on the life of local abolitionist Noadiah Moore. “It went very well,” Paquette said of Papson’s presentation. “We had close to 50 people. Ther e wer e a lot of people inter ested because Noadiah Moore was a Champlainer.” Paquette hopes that enthusiasm will continue as the center welcomes its second special guest Thursday, July 7. Mohawk artist and storyteller David Fadden will be the featured speaker next Thursday as part of a fr ee series on Native American writers presented by the Adirondack Center for Writing at Paul Smith’s College. “I don’t kn ow Dave Fadden . .. it’s somethin g where Paul Smith’s contacted us to use the venue,” said Paquette. “I’m glad the building is being used, though. I’d like to see more of it.” “I hope we have a good turnout,” she added.

Adirondack Outdoors • North Countryman - 19

A wilder side of the Adirondacks

T

he Fourth of July is considered the beginning of the Adirondack tourist season. Although tourism is the re gion’s primary industry , many local r esidents rank the annual onslaught of nature seekers and leaf peepers, somewher e just below the winter ’s first heavy snow, and slightly above spring’s bug season. While these observations ar e of fered in jest, there are certain truths evidenced, especially when roads are clogged with cars traveling at a snail’s pace, or if a favorite swimming hole is filled with unfamiliar faces. Such happenings happen, and when they do, I’m inclined to grin and bear it. After all, I’m beholden to tourist’s inter ests, and it may well be the only viable industry left in the park. But when the overload becomes too much, I escape to the solitude of a few, safe retreats. Some of my favorite escapes can be found along the untracked trails and secluded ponds of the Cranberry Lake region. Other such retreats can be realized along remote stretches of the Raquette River, especially in the sections downriver from Tupper Lake. However, there are wild and remote lands much closer to home. In fact, some may be
