POTSDAM — The North Countryman has been around since the 1920s, far before the invention of the Internet. However, with the hard work provided by the Northern New York Library Network, past editions may now be viewed on-line. The NNYLN provides the Northern New York Historical Newspapers Web site, news.nnlyn.net, which has Adobe PDF versions of 44 newspapers across seven upstate counties. Most recently, the March 1928 through March 1982 editions of the North Countryman were added.

Students learn importance of fire prevention, safety By Sarah L. Cronk sarah@denpubs.com WEST CHAZY — The Great Chicago Fire killed more than 250 people and left 100,000 homeless in early October 1871. During that same time, the Peshtigo Fire occurred in Wisconsin — known as the most devastating forest fire in American history. Nearly 40 years later, fire departments across the nation continue a tradition of informing the public of the importance of fire safety and prevention, on a regular basis. “So, today we do fire pre-

vention to be able to try and prevent any of that sort of stuff from happening,” explained fire instructor Mark Lafountain of the Beekmantown Fire Department. Lafountain worked alongside numerous other volunteers to bring fire prevention to Beekmantown Elementary School Oct. 11 during Fire Safety Week, which is held annually during the week the Great Chicago Fire occurred. “It’s taken Beekmantown, ...

One fire department alone can’t do the job.” Students from the school spent 15 minutes at six different stations which teach fire and life safety. “This is the first Fire Safety Day that I’ve been a part

CTC shows customers appreciation By Sarah L. Cronk sarah@denpubs.com CHAMPLAIN — Each year, as an independent phone company, Champlain Telephone Company hosts a Customer Appreciation Day, to become more familiar with their clientele. CTC, along with other independent phone companies throughout the state, pass around ideas that can benefit the companies and those they serve. “One of the ideas that started quite awhile ago, many years ago, was to hold an open house early in the fall, before it really gets cold,” explained vice president of CTC Greg MacConnell. This year, the event was held Oct. 1, although the cold weather had already emerged in the Northern Tier. But despite the damp and chilly weather, CTC customers still came out to take part in the open house, with a steady stream of people visiting their main office building at 1118 Main St., throughout the day. Events included free food, tours of the building, a bouncy house for children, and a blood drive. “We partner with [CVPH Medical

Center] ... and have a blood drive the same day,” explained MacConnell. “We thought it would just be a good opportunity to do it the same day, so if customers want to get in, they could.” Overall, MacConnell has found Customer Appreciation Day to be a benefit to both the clients and CTC. “It’s kind of different form a normal arms-length business where you provide a service, somebody sends out a check, and nobody ever knows anybody,” he explained. “It’s pretty intimate between the customers and the company. So, consequently, we have a Customer Appreciation Day; we usual-

ly get a pretty good turnout.” MacConnell has found many customers choose to come into the office to pay their bill, instead of dropping it in the mail. “So, consequently a lot of our customers have known our people for years and years and years,” he said. The open house gives the staff of CTC a chance to speak with their customers on a “different level,” said MacConnell. “Kind of get better acquainted with them, and them with us,” he said. “It’s good from a customer-relations standpoint.

Denton Publications adds 15 newspapers Combined circulation stands at 250,000 By John Gereau johng@denpubs.com Eagle Newspapers, based in Syracuse, and Spotlight Newspapers, based in Delmar, have been purchased by Community Media Group LLC — a new company formed by Denton Publications owner Daniel E. Alexander. The new partnership draws 15 free and paid community newspapers under the Denton umbrella, bringing the local company’s total number of publications to 25 with a combined circulation of 250,000, as well as a number of niche publications and Web sites. The total number of employees will increase from 75 to 140. While the purchase will open numerous advertising opportunities and create a network for sharing resources and improving content, Alexander stressed the papers will all retain their commitment to community journalism. “We plan to remain local, we believe in the community newspaper concept,” Alexander said. “At the same time, we recognize people do travel, and both advertisers and readers will

no doubt have an interest in the areas covered by these papers.” For example, Alexander said a local event like Race the Train which took place in North Creek in September can now receive publicity in a much greater portion of New York and Vermont, through the new partnership. “Our network is far reaching,” Alexander said. “I’ve been told that our publicity of these events definitely draws participants, which in turn brings money to our communities. This new relationship can only help with that.” The same opportunities exist for advertisers, Alexander said. Advertisers will soon have the ability to reach 250,000 homes throughout Vermont, northern and central New York, as well as the Capital District with just one buy — or they can target a single region. “The benefit over the metro dailies is we can zone for a specific region, or offer the entire area,” he said. “We see this as an opportunity for choice.” Both Eagle Newspapers and Spotlight Newspapers are strong organizations which have for years produced upscale community newspapers with numerous awards to their credit. Eagle publisher David B. Tyler Jr. and Spotlight publisher John A. McIntyre Jr. will remain at the helm of their respective groups and will be principals of Community Media Group LLC along with Alexander. Alexander has a similar principal ownership in New

Market Press Inc. and publisher Ed Coats, who publishes The Eagle, Rutland Tribune and The Messenger in Vermont. In New York, Denton publishes the Adirondack Journal, Times of Ti, News Enterprise, Valley News, Tri-Lakes Free Trader Today, Clinton County Free Trader Today and North Countryman. Eagle Newspapers has eight weekly publications in the Syracuse market. They are the Baldswinsville Messenger, Cazenovia Republican, Eagle Bulletin, Eagle Observer, Madison Eagle Skaneateles Press, Syracuse City Eagle and Star-Review. Spotlight Newspapers has seven publications in the Albany market including The Spotlight, Colonie Spotlight, Loudonville Spotlight, Niskayuna Spotlight, Rotterdam Spotlight, ScotiaGlenville Spotlight and The Spotlight — Saratoga County. Monthly publications include Capital District Parent Pages and Capital District Senior Spotlight. The publishers said the purchase is a win-win for all involved. “These newspapers have a strong foundation in the communities they serve, and we believe this new ownership arrangement will allow us to enhance the quality of the editorial product and create efficiencies that weren’t available to us previously,” Tyler said. “Dan Alexander has a long history of running community newspaper companies and his expertise as well as the technological and printing resources Denton Publica-

tions bring to the table makes this a win-win.” Community Media Group LLC will continue to

use the trade names Eagle Newspapers and Spotlight Newspapers and readers can expect the same commitment to community journalism they have become accustomed to over the years, McIntyre said. “This should be a pretty seamless transition for our readers, advertisers and employees,” McIntyre said. “We have a number of excellent journalists in our fold, and this transaction should allow for continued improvement of our community-based newspapers.” Denton Publications plant manager Tom Henecker said relationships like the one created between Eagle, Spotlight, New Market and Denton make sense given the current economic climate. “It’s a great thing that during these tough economic times we’re able to expand. It’s a testament to the forward-thinking owners and managers,” Henecker said. “There are a lot of years of newspaper experience

that have just joined forces. It’s the proverbial win-win situation; as our company grows and gets

stronger, so will our products, which will bring greater benefits to our readers and advertisers.” Michelle Rea, executive director of the New York Press Association, was integral in helping make the

purchase come to fruition, saying her primary goal is creating partnerships to ensure the long-term viability of community newspapers. Rea said she was approached by Tyler and McIntyre at the association’s spring meeting and informed of their intent to seek a buyer. Rea said Alexander ’s name immediately came to mind. “I don’t think anyone has more of a vested interest in maintaining the viability of community newspapers than NYPA,” Rea said. “Given the current economy, working relationships like this not only make sense, they are a necessity.”

Are third-party OS utilities second-rate?

vonne was one of three kittens abandoned by their mom, but rescued and brought to the shelter. She is waiting to be spayed and is up-todate with routine shots and house-trained. Blondi is a yellow labrador retriever mix with one blue eye and one brown. She is spayed, up-to-date with routine shots and heartworm negative.

ost software on a computer can be placed into one of three categories — operating systems, device drivers and applications. Nearly every computer has only one operating system with examples being Windows Vista, Mac OS X and Linux Ubuntu. Device drivers are software that controls a device, like a printer, for the operating system. Applications are programs that make us productive, entertain us or provide a service. Services come in the form of utility programs and are everything from hard drive defragmenters to firewalls. We usually aren’t productive or entertained by utilities, but they are absolutely essential to any Internet-connected PC. Last month, Bill Detwiler, a tech article writer and blogger, posted this blog question, “Do you recommend users run third-party OS utilities (registry cleaners, hard drive tools, etc.)?” His followers are mostly IT administrators and professionals who work closely with information technology so the posts he received were slanted from that angle. Surprisingly enough, many of the replies were emphatically “no” with the recommendation to stick with the built-in Windows utility. We often talk about third-party utilities in the classroom. When Bill blogged the question my first thought was yes, there is some fine third-party software that is thought to do

a better job than the built-in Windows equivalent. The first one that came to mind is the CCleaner program that goes far beyond the Windows Disk Cleanup utility. Another one is the Comodo firewall that always has great reviews and is considered by many to be an improvement over the Windows firewall. I think the answers from the IT professionals came mostly out of concern over By Ron Poland issues that third-party utilities may create on their networks or systems and not simply faulting the good stuff that is out there.

any times, persons with Alzheimer ’s disease will have excess energy, which can result in restlessness and wandering, according to www.caregiverslibrary.org. These behaviors can create difficulties for caregivers. Restlessness can involve fidgeting and an inability to stay interested in activities. Wandering can be very dangerous for seniors whose cognitive abilities are impaired, and can be a symptom of anxiety as well as dementia. It can also be a side effect of some prescription medications. If the person being cared for begins to exhibit signs of restlessness or is starting to wander they should be seen by a healthcare professional immediately. She may make recommendations as simple as eliminating caffeine, or may feel prescription medications, like anti-anxiety drugs, are the best course of action. Keep in mind there is no one perfect solution, and a variety of remedies may need to be explored. Here are some steps caregivers can take to help manage restlessness and wandering: • Make sure care receivers get regular exercise • Limit the number of naps they take • Serve a larger meal at mid-day, with the evening meal the smallest of the day • Examine wandering habits to determine a pattern • Explore different distractions for when wandering occur.

Have a plan in place in case the care receiver wanders away. The Vital Link packets available from the Office for the Aging suggest inclusion of a current photograph to help identify potential wanderers. Invest in Medic-Alert bracelets as well. Other tips include locking and bolting doors, and putting bells on doors as well for occasions when locking them is impractical. Also, make sure they are comfortable, and limit changes in the house. A consistent, familiar environment can go far in preventing restlessness and wandering. For more information contact the Caregiver Resource Center, BHSN 565-4543 or 565-4625.

Build coupon ‘library’ by saving weekly inserts

I

n previous columns, I've stressed the need to hold on to all of the coupon inserts we receive each week in the newspaper. The biggest mistake “casual” coupon users make is to cut out the coupons for the items they think they’ll buy and then toss the rest of the insert into the recycle bin. As you likely know by now, this is the biggest mistake people make with coupons. In tossing the insert you throw away coupons for items that will be free later. I know the skeptics in the crowd are thinking, “Free? Come on...” Yes! Absolutely free. Think about this. During the past few months, in my coupon inserts I’ve seen $1 coupons for toothpaste, $1 coupons for dish detergent and $1 coupons for frozen vegetables. If I didn’t save my inserts each week, I might have thrown away those coupons — and guess what? All of those items have gone on sale for a dollar. When an item goes on sale for a dollar and I use a dollar coupon, the item is free. If your grocery stores double coupons it’s even easier to get things for free, provided again that you’ve saved all of your coupons. During double coupon days, your 50-cent coupons are worth $1 toward those dollar sales! But one of the most important reasons to hold on to all of your coupon inserts is this: rarely do the coupons that we receive on Sunday line up with the best sales in the same week. Their real value comes as they get closer to their expiration dates. Why is this the case? Stores know which coupons are coming out in the newspaper each week, long before we actually get them. This is not secret information. In fact, many coupon Web sites print preview lists of the coupons that are coming soon. Armed with this knowledge, stores typically leave the items that will be featured in the coupons at a higher price, because they know the habits of most people that use coupons. Casual coupon users flip through the paper and cut the coupons for the things they plan to buy that week. And many people think, “I’d better use this coupon this week before I forget.” Does this sound like you? Then, you may be

saving a little money, but you’re not using your coupons in the most effective way. Here’s a great example. My grocery store recently had a full-page ad in the coupon inserts. The ad contained a $3 coupon for dog food. At the top of the page, the ad proudly proclaimed the dog food was on sale for $8.99 at my store this week. It said “Use this $3 coupon, and you’ll pay By Jill Cataldo just $5.99 a bag.” Now, I know from experience that $8.99 is not a very good sale price for that dog food at all. While it may be “on sale,” it’s not the rock-bottom, lowest price that I’ve seen the dog food sell for in past sales. So instead of falling for this common advertising tactic, I held onto that $3 coupon and didn’t use it the week that the store wanted me to. Four weeks later, guess what? The dog food went on sale for $3.99 a bag! That’s when I went in with my $3 coupon. I got my dog food for just 99 cents. If I’d purchased it the week I received the coupon, even with the coupon savings I would have paid $5.99 a bag. By waiting a few weeks, I saved $5. When you start to think about shopping this way for almost everything we buy the savings start to really add up! And that’s why we save all of our coupon inserts. So build a library of your coupon inserts. Keeping them all allows us to have many coupons on hand when those good sales come around.

The long history of houseplants Market Basket prices now down 3%

N

o one is exactly sure who brought the first plants indoors or why, but archaeologists have discovered artwork dating back thousands of years depicting houseplants in Egypt. The ancient Greeks and Romans were also known for their love of houseplants and often build atriums in their homes. In the 15th century, the popularity of houseplants escalated in Europe as Europeans began exploring the New World. Exotic plants were shipped back to kings, queens, and other upper class noblemen and women who had special houses known as organeries to house their palms, figs, citrus fruits, orchids, and many other tropical plants. We now call these structures greenhouses and conservatories. During the Victorian times, growing and caring for houseplants became a more common hobby. This is when many of the houseplants we know and love came into existence. During this time period, the houseplants were taken from their native landscape and shipped back to Europe. Many of the plants perished during shipping as they journeyed from the New World to England. In 1833, Dr. Nathaniel Ward created a glass case to help solve this problem. At that time, the case was

known as the Wardian Case. Today, we call it a terrarium. Here in America, houseplants became popular in the ‘50s and ‘60s. Before then, the lack of precise temperature control in most homes made the climate unsuitable. Two of the most popular houseplants of the time were Swedish ivy and philodendron. Almost every home seemed to have at least one. Their popularity increased in the ‘70s with the arrival of plant hangers and poles, and of course, that ‘70s mainstay, the macramé holder. Rubber plants also gained popularity, especially in offices and public spaces. By the 1990s, more exotic houseplants such as orchids enjoyed a new popularity as they became available in home centers and nurseries.

arket Basket prices were virtually unchanged in August at $93.79 compared with July's cost of $94, but are down 3 percent from last August's cost of $97.02. For the month, prices fell on produce and canned vegetables. Prices were stable in August on breads, cereals and grains, meats, dairy, drinks, frozen foods and miscellaneous items. For the year, prices are down in all categories, except drinks and canned goods. Produce prices for the year dropped on every product surveyed. White potatoes, which had been much more expensive all year, are now selling for $1 less for 10 pounds than this time last year. If you have a cool, dry place to store potatoes you might consider stocking up while the price is lower. Dairy prices were down on whole and skim milk, but higher for the month on large eggs. For the year, prices are still down, reflecting the lower prices received by dairy farmers for their product; whole milk prices are 25 percent lower than August 2008. There was a drop in the breads, cereals and grains category because of the decrease in the price for River rice for the month and year; rice prices seem to be recovering from the sharp increased due to high fuel costs and crop shortages in 2008.

In canned goods, store-brand diced tomatoes were down 18 percent for the year, following the trend of lower produce prices. Prices remain up on Star Kist tuna for the year. Prices continue their decline on store-brand oil for the year and Oreo cookie prices remain stable in the miscellaneous category. All drink prices were up as compared to this time last year: Budweiser beer, store-brand coffee, tea and cola.

Seasonal reminder The local harvest of all apple varieties is well underway. There will be local corn, tomatoes, snap beans and cucumbers until the first frost. September was the top month for grapes and the first good month of the pear season. The Market Basket is a monthly report based on a survey of 41 food items commonly purchased by consumers. The SUNY Plattsburgh Office of Institutional Research collects data for the report from four major supermarkets in the Plattsburgh area. The report is then compiled as a community service sponsored by the Technical Assistance Center and the SUNY Plattsburgh Office of Institutional Advancement.

Fort Montgomery Days successful The first-ever Fort Montgomery Days were held in Rouses Point Sept. 12-13. Our dear old fort was selected by the New York State Preservation League as one of the Seven to Save Sites for 2009. The league notified the Podd Family in the beginning of June that all seven sites were requested to have a heritage event on that September weekend. A committee was formed and worked many, many hours to bring the North Country a spectacular event. One of the first projects was readying the fort for visiting. The word was put out and many volunteers worked an unbelievable number of hours to cut brush and vines and weeds, clean the moat and the cover face and the top of the bastions, pick up trash, bricks, stones, etc. on the parade and along the tour route. Three months later, over 2,000 visitors were welcomed to the fort grounds and received tours, entertainment, re-enactments, food and the opportunity to meet Jim Millard and purchase an autographed copy of his newest book “Bastions on the Border.” This was a win-win event for Fort Montgomery and Rouses Point. A rousing cheer to all the volunteers (both for clean-up and event day), the vendors, the donors, the media for getting the word out and being there to cover this historic event, and all the visitors who came from near and far. A special thank you to Stephen and Victor Podd who supported the nomination to the Preservation League, opened up the fort to the public and funded the whole event! Check out www.historiclakes.org for a complete list of volunteers, vendors, donors and Fort Montgomery Days events.

United Way a great community asset The recent editorial on United Way calling it a heart of the region could not have been more accurate. It is truly one of the community’s greatest assets. I have been associated with the United Way organization for over ten years. I served on the board of Brown County United Way in Wisconsin prior to our move to the North Country three years ago. I am a firm believer that we have a responsibility to give back to the communities that have enabled us to be successful members of society. We also realize not everyone is as fortunate. The United Way of Clinton and Essex Counties are lucky to have a very dedicated and supportive staff along with a multitude of very caring and committed community volunteers. I chose years ago to become involved with United Way for several reasons. One, it is a very well run organization that manages its overhead (fixed costs) in a manner that makes even private enterprise envious. Second, I am a believer that government can not solve all the problems that exist in our local communities; it is simply not feasible. Third and most important is that the decisions are made by local volunteers who are closest to the problems and challenges that are faced by the community. I trust and have confidence that my charitable dollars are distributed in a fair and consistent manner because I know who makes those decisions.

A call for action To all people who are concerned about food quality and safety: The time for action is now. The agricultural industry is the largest industry in New York State. A significant portion of that is derived from the dairy industry. The dairy industry in our area represents more than just a food supply. It also represents a significant employment base and a major economic impact to all of our communities. Currently, our dairy industry is suffering greatly. Farmers are losing money at an unprecedented rate. If this continues without Gov. Paterson’s intervention, we will lose many, if not all, of our farms. This

will not only change a way of life in our area, but will destroy the local economy for many of our communities. An even greater price will be paid by all of us in terms of food quality and food safety. The time to act is now. A question often posed to me by consumers is, “what can we do?” The answer is simple: contact Gov. Paterson and demand that he protect our food source and food safety and provide the immediate financial relief to the dairy industry that has been requested of him. This relief will help stabilize pricing until the federal government can make long overdue adjustments to the manner in which farmers are compensated for their products. The second thing consumers can do is demand that the state and federal governments mandate that all food products are labeled with Country of Origin. This will help all of us make more intelligent buying decisions and better protect our families. If you have any questions or wish to learn more about how you can help, please feel free to contact me at 792-4546 or email me at saywart@assembly.state.ny.us. Assemblywoman Teresa R.

Atkinson Scrap Metal, Inc.

By Jeremiah S. Papineau jeremiah@denpubs.com CHAZY — Seventy-five years have gone by since the formation of the Chazy Volunteer Fire Department. Richard Carpentier, a firefighter and chairman of the board of commissioners for the Chazy Fire District, the governing body of the fire department, said the history dates back well before he joined the department in 1959. And, that history is well-documented, he said. “We’ve got just about all the minutes of every meeting held by the board of fire commissioners,” said Carpentier. “Some years are scarce, but we’ve pretty much got all of them.” The department’s history began when the Chazy Town Council held a special meeting to create the fire district June 30, 1934. In less than four months, the fire district’s board of commissioners held its first organizational meeting, Oct. 18, 1934. The order of business in the initial meetings of the board included deciding where the department would be housed and purchasing equipment to help firefighters in fulfilling their duties of serving the town, said Carpentier as he looked over historical documents during a recent open

house at the fire department. The department started with purchasing a fire engine and materials to construct a station on Church Street, with a portion of the costs being covered by the federal government through the National Industry Recovery Act. The fire department remained solely in the building for 50 years, said Carpentier, until it was decided there simply wasn’t enough room to house the department any longer. “We were cramped,” recalled Carpentier as he stood in the original 1934 building, which is today used to house nonessential equipment. “We had this building and we had another addition on there, another on the back. It was just really packed.” When the town highway department was moved to its current location on Miner Farm Road in 1984, the fire district purchased the former town garage and renovated the space. “We basically ended up with a new fire station,” said Carpentier. There have been thousands of calls responded to by firefighters and emergency medical personnel in the department over the years, said Carpentier. One of the first that comes to mind when thinking of the most devastating fires was the loss of the former Gordon Farm on Dunn Road. The fire destroyed an empty barn at the old dairy farm on the night of Halloween in 1980. “We got a call and went down there with the trucks and there was no fire, but we could see where somebody tried to start

one,” Carpentier recalled. “So, we just came back to the station.” Not long after, the department was called back to the scene, which was fully engulfed in flames, he said. “If I would’ve been smart, I would’ve stayed with a two-way radio or something when we were first called down there,” said Carpentier. “Then, I might have caught the person who set it. But, that’s just an afterthought.” The person responsible for setting the blaze was never caught, though the department had their suspicions who the person was, Carpentier said. And, no matter what the reason for being called, members of the department have been ready to respond, said Carpentier. The department’s roster, which is currently at nearly 40 members, is a testament to the support of the community, he said. “We just get personal satisfaction out of helping people in their time of need,” he said. “They’re there for us and we’re there for them.” Fire Chief Michael Cahoon agreed. “We’ve always had a lot of community support, whether it’s through our calendar drive, joining the department, or whatever,” said Cahoon. The reason is that people of the community know how valuable a service having a local fire department is, said Cahoon. “Whenever something goes wrong, everyone knows they can call 9-1-1 and we’re there,” said Cahoon.

Eagles soar over AuSable Valley

SATURDAY October 17, 2009

Chazy’s Kyle McCarthy (3) tries to shoot for a goal as AuSable Valley goalie T.J. Burl defends.

By Sarah L. Cronk sarah@denpubs.com CHAZY — Despite frigid temperatures and a slick field, the Chazy boys soccer team continued their winning streak at their home field, with a final score of 4-0 against AuSable Valley in a non-league contest Oct. 13. “I thought we possessed the ball pretty well,” said Chazy head coach Rob McAuliffe. “I thought the goals that we got were good goals and good finishes.” Tyler Bulriss, Brandon Laurin, Kaleb Snide, and Andrew Rabideau each scored for the Eagles, who outshot their CVAC opponents 14-5. However, AuSable Valley keeper T.J. Burl defended the goal well, saving six shots from the Eagles. Austin Santor collected two saves for the shutout. Overall, McAuliffe felt the team came prepared to play. “It was the seniors last game, and I think as long as we came here focused and defended well, that we should be able to pos-

sess the ball enough to generate some chances,” said McAuliffe, adding Kaleb Snide and Jordan Barriere played exceptionally well. Despite the loss, Patriots coach Bob Hamilton was proud of his team and felt the offense possessed the ball well. “Obviously Chazy’s a pretty decent club,” said Hamilton. “The haven’t lost a game. So they’re very good.” “I think if we had scored in the first half when we had the chance in front of the goal, it would have been a 1-1 game,” he added. “It would have been a great opportunity and [we] missed it. It just went downhill from there.” 1 2 Chazy 2 2—4 AuSable Valley 0 0 — 0 First half: 1, Ch, Bulriss (LaPierre), 5:14. 2, Ch, Laurin (McCarthy), 20:06.

State putting the kabosh on boats left in the woods I

f you can read this, you’re too close. That statement has absolutely nothing to do with this week’s column, but I just saw a bumper sticker printed with that timeless adage — a sticker I haven’t seen since high school. Come to think of it, this pickup could have been the same vintage as my high school days. Either way, guess I was too close. On a completely unrelated topic, did you hear the DEC passed a law which prohibits the storage of personal property on state lands? That means any boat left on a backwoods pond will be confiscated and become the property of the state. Owners can claim the boat, but not without incurring a penalty and paying for its removal. In the past, the law was worded to include only camping equipment, so boats and canoes left on ponds were exempt. That changed with the newest land use revision passed in May which makes it illegal to leave behind any “personal belongings.” DEC spokesman Dave Winchell posted the following announcement on the DEC Adirondack/Lake Champlain Fishing and Hunting Hotline: “Storage of Personal Belongings on State Land: Please be aware that the State Land Use Regulation was revised, effective May 2009, to prohibit the placing of structures or personal prop-

erty on state land without authorization from one gets under my skin. DEC.

Simple acts of kindness: Rebecca gets her answer

T

he snowball I have rolling with my columns about simple acts of kindness people show to one another continues to gain momentum. I continue to receive touching stories by mail, e-mail and on our Web site at www.denpubs.com. All have been heartwarming and inspirational, but one stood out above the rest this week. That’s because it was a letter from the woman who was the inspiration for my first column. In that column I spoke about how Rebecca Ives of Crown Point had submitted a letter to the editor about how she had been approached by a woman on a sweltering hot day this summer as she sat outside the post office in a van with her three children. The woman pressed a $50 bill into her hand and said, “Here is a little something for you to take your kids somewhere nice and cool today. I think God wanted me to bless you today.” Rebecca wanted the unidentified woman to know she and her three children did in fact take her up on the offer, and had a wonderful afternoon thanks to her act of kindness. Rebecca also wondered if the woman could afford the generous gesture. Well, Rebecca, here is your answer: Dear Rebecca, I am the woman who helped you that hot day at the post office, your letter to the editor moved me to tears and I want to respond to your question, “I wondered if she really could’ve afforded it.” I get $455 a month in Social Security, my husband $1,094. We will celebrate our 50th anniversary in March and in all those 49 plus years the Lord has blessed us and never failed to provide for all our needs. Last December, my sister gave me $50 to “do something special,” and it has sat in my wallet until the day I saw your car with the children in it at the post office. Many times I almost bought something with it, but I wanted it to be something really special, something that I would remember and would bring me pleasure. Nothing ever did, until that day. God spoke to my heart when I saw the children in your car on that very hot day. I knew you had your hands full, and the thought of being able to help you take them somewhere cool where they could have fun was overwhelming. I couldn’t wait to give it to you. The joy your letter brought me is by far the best “purchase” I could have made, so to answer your question, “could I afford it?” The answer is ... I couldn’t afford not to! May God bless you. The woman asked to remain anonymous.
