denpubs@denpubs.com MINERVA — With the raffle of a fully restored antique mack truck, Saturday, Jan. 9 marked the end of the 2009 fundraising at Sporty’s Iron Duke Saloon. The 1961 Model B Mack Truck raised $20,000 for Essex County Toys for Kids. This tax deductible charitable organization is also based at Sporty’s. The truck, seen parked in front of Sporty’s during this past summer and fall, was an anonymous donation from a private collection. The lucky winner was Michael A. Morrissey, who was among approximately 400 people who purchased raffle tickets. Morrissey owns a construction and excavation business in Fort Ann. The fundraising efforts at Sporty’s over the past year were especially successful. Four hundred needy children in eight school districts in Essex County benefitted from the donations of hats, coats, boots, new clothes and, of course,

JOHNSBURG — Working against cost cutting and strict state education regulation, local schools find themselves working hard to keep Home and Careers classes as a core part of their curriculums. At the recent conference in Lake Placid Celebrating the 100th anniversary of Family and Consumer Sciences, field professionals acknowledged the struggles they face. Some teachers voiced a concern that many communities don’t see the need for Home and Careers classes anymore — calling them useless or irrelevant. Local teachers and administrators see the challenges that face the subject, but do not hesitate to exclaim its benefits. “These are life-long skills,” said Glenn Lang, technology teacher at Minerva Central School. “They are valuable and teach kids how to deal with real-life issues.” Lang teaches the lone Home and Careers class at Minerva Central School, offered to seventh grade students. Johnsburg Central School boasts one of the strongest Home and Careers

Citizens question Vintage Snowsled Race featured at Long Lake Winter Carnival nepotism in Essex By Lindsay Yandon Co. gov’t hiring lindsay@denpubs.com

ELIZABETHTOWN — Inquiring minds want to know whether a last name helps or hinders a person’s chance of getting a job in Essex County government. Following intense scrutiny from a handful of residents, Essex County supervisors are considering the creation of an ethics committee, and they may begin requiring more disclosure of personal and family relationships between county leadership and candidates for county employment. Over the last few months, the hiring of several close relatives of County Manager Dan Palmer and his wife, Board of Supervisors Clerk

LONG LAKE — The Moonlighter's 9th annual Winter Carnival will kick-off on Jan. 16 in Long Lake and will feature the historic Northern New York Snowsled Races on Jennings Park Pond on Jan. 17. Long Lake has been void of their notorious 100miler snowmobile race for many years. Local racers, however, would not let the sport die in their tiny town. Gabe Farr —racer and employee of the New York State Electric and Gas Company — kept the sport alive and will take the course on Sunday on one of his vintage snowsleds. Farr has been racing vintage sleds for over 10 years and boasts a number of trophies to prove his dedication. He has built up an impressive fleet of snowmobiles for these races including a 1976 440 Liquid Cooled Mercury Sno Twister, a 1975 440 Free Air Mercury Sno Twister, a 1975 340 Free Air Mercury Sno Twister and a 1975 340 Fancooled Mercury Trail Twister. Recently, Farr returned from the World Championships in Eagle River, Wisconsin. He was joined by his father, Brian Farr and friend,

Johnsburg graduates Widlund Gallery features Johnsburg couple honored at SUNY Canton CANTON — President at SUNY Canton, Joseph L. Kennedy and the college's deans recently released the honor roll for the fall 2009 semester. Both David Gardinier and Tyler J. Morse of North Creek made Dean's List during their first semesters at Canton. Gardinier is an Engineering Science major and Morse is a Criminal Investigation major. Both graduated from Johnsburg Central School in 2009. “I'd like to congratulate each and every one of these scholars,” Kennedy said of all the students receiving honors. “Their hard work and dedication will transcend their time at SUNY Canton. Whether they decide to continue their education, seek employment, or start their own business, their commitment to education will benefit them for years to come.” To receive Dean's List, Gardinier and Morse received a semester GPA above 3.25.

North Country Outreach Center offers GED Program By Lindsay Yandon lindsay@denpubs.com NORTH CREEK — The North Country Outreach Center announced this week that they will soon offer General Education Development (GED) classes and an adult literacy program for community members. The new programs are scheduled to begin at the Outreach Center in North Creek on Thursday, Jan. 21 at 7 pm. The Outreach Center was once the host to a Board Of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) program that provided educational options for local residents. The program recently ended after only three years of service. “State funding cuts made it impossible for the program to continue on with the model that had worked so well for area students,” said programming director Andi McKee. “But the need is persistent and growing, and we were committed to finding a solution that would not rely on government funding.” The waiting list for a GED program at the Outreach Center has grow to over 20 students since the close of the BOCES program. Educational programs at the Outreach Center have been both popular and successful in the past, according to president Judy Brown. “Many factors had to come together to re-instate these popular adult education initiatives,” she said. “We are thrilled at the program we’ve been able to put together with the help of so many committed volunteers.” Rich Morse and Sue Allison will oversee the GED classes, which will rely on the participation of dedicated volunteers and will be independent of state funding. Brown is confident that the new model will meet the special requirements of North Country residents. Those interested in volunteering or enrolling should contact the Outreach Center at 251-3481.

Present “Islands of the Atlantic Ridge” photographs By Lindsay Yandon lindsay@denpubs.com NORTH CREEK — Linda Zila and Bob McDermott of Johnsburg have traveled across oceans and back armed with only their cameras. On Jan. 30, images from their trip will be displayed at the Widlund Gallery at Tannery Pond Community Center. Their photographs will be on display through March 2. The exhibit will contain more than 70 photographs from their voyage aboard the Lindblad/National Geographic Endeavour in 2008. They visited remote islands in the Atlantic Ocean and went from the waters of Antarctica along the Atlantic Ridge through temperate and tropic climes to their final destination in the Canary Islands. This journey was an epic wander permitting a glimpse into the past through literature and art, they said. Zila and McDermott spent days at sea without sight of land or other vessels, but were never void of photo opportunities. They delighted in the sightings of pods of whales or schools of dolphins. Zila and McDermott revealed that the islands were as isolated as the ship itself.

“There were no airports. Instead, those who needed to travel waited for Endeavour to fetch and deliver them to their destinations. Indeed, time slowed to a nineteenth century crawl,” said Zila. A retired educator, McDermott has traveled the globe all his life shooting slides for use in his social studies classes. “Ordinary picture taking soon grew into a photographic passion,” he said. He artfully records, with an eye for history, culture and a sense of place, the faces and landscapes he has encountered on his journeys in North America, Europe, Asia, and Africa. The couple met, married and moved to the North Country in 2002. Soon after, McDermott became committed to digital photography - opening the doors of new opportunity. He shoots with a Canon EOS 30D and uses a 17-85mm lens for most pictures, switching to a 70-300mm telephoto for distant objects and events. Zila is newer to world travel, having had most of her expeditions since marrying. A quick study, however, the retired medical writer is moved by what she discovers in her travels. She shoots with a Canon SX110 IS. On Friday, Feb. 5 from 5 - 7 p.m. there will be an artist reception, followed by the showing of a one-hour National Geographic video documenting he journey of Zila and McDermott. These events are free of charge and open to the public. For more gallery information, call 251-2421 or visit www.tpcca.org.

Long Lake students leave their mark on MDRM Industries Compete in logo design competition

InBrief The Adirondack Museum thanks supporters BLUE MOUNTAIN LAKE - The Adirondack Museum's "Working for the Man: Songs and Stories of Adirondack Lumberjacks and Miners" held at Tannery Pond Community Center on Jan. 10 was made possible through the generosity of Creative Stage Lighting Co., Inc., the Copperfield Inn, Jim and Carolyn Hutchins, Jane Castaneda, and the Glenn and Carol Pearsall Adirondack Foundation, "dedicated to improving the quality of life for year-round residents of the Adirondack Park.” The Adirondack Museum appreciates their support of this program.

By Lindsay Yandon lindsay@denpubs.com LONG LAKE — In a recent contest initiated by MDRM Industries, Long Lake art students competed to design a new logo for the company. MDRM Industries, Inc. is based in Long Lake and specializes in the fabrication of metal caissons for utility poles, transformers, etc. all around the country. MDRM is owned by Jackie and Michael Rivette. Michele Gannon, art teacher at Long Lake Central School was approached by MDRM as they sought a new logo design for their letterhead, business cards, trucks and to be featured on their Web site. Not pleased with the options they were provided by marketing firms, they offered an opportunity to Long Lake students to design logos and offer them up for selection by MDRM. Four students volunteered to participate in the competition including freshmen Meg Smith and Somnang Mor, sophomore Ratani Mor and senior Ben Black. They worked on their logos as an extra to their assigned worked. “The students worked outside of class and were not required to participate in the competition,” said Gannon. Gannon gave them sparse guidelines and set them loose on designing a simplistic, yet meaningful, logo design for MDRM. Smith was selected as the contest winner and her logo will now printed on MDRM materials. The selection committee was awed by her work. “She nailed it,” said MDRM president Michael Rivette. “With one simple drawing, she was able to show precisely what we do.” “Her design was outstanding in the way it captured the essence of the company in a very simplistic format,” said

Gannon. After receiving the contest submissions, MDRM decided to alter its guidelines slightly and include the designs of the three other participants on the Web site in some form. They were highly impressed by the creativity of the local students and were pleasantly surprised at how difficult it was to chose a winner. “We have always believed that Long Lake has some really talented students,” said MDRM President Michael Rivette. “What we are most excited about is that it means so much more that our students created our designs. With their creativity, they have gotten us to be creative in, hopefully, marketing our company in a unique way.”

‘Almost Maine’ to be performed in Indian Lake and Old Forge

JANUARY 17, 2010 REGISTRATION 11AM

From page 1 Johnny Walker as pit crew. “I rely on them to get me through the schedule and I couldn't’ do it without them,” Farr said. “It really is a team effort.” Snowmobile racing has been a tradition in the family since Farr was a child. “I hope to see my sun racing my sleds someday,” he said. Farr races between eight and 12 times a year on the Northern New York Circuit. He starts up his season on Jennings Park Pond as soon as the ice is thick enough. “My favorite place to sled is on the smaller tracks,” he said. “They may not be as fast, but do require more driver skill.” This year, Farr will sponsor local Ryan Kitchen on one of his sleds in the Long Lake races. This will be Kitchen’s first competitive start. The Vintage Snosled races are sponsored in part by the Long Lake Lions Club, who realized that the races once a staple in Long Lake are sorely missed. The races begin at noon and the public is encourages to attend. There is a $10 entrance fee.

County From page 1 Deborah Doyle-Palmer, have some residents wondering if nepotism is running rampant in Essex County. But county supervisors and department heads refuted the rumors and allegations of unfair hiring practices, calling the claims unfounded. At an organizational meeting of the county Board of Supervisors Jan. 4, Essex resident Sandy Lewis addressed the group and urged greater disclosure of the county's hiring process, particularly when family members of current employees are involved. Essex County Board of Supervisors Chairman Randy Douglas said he doesn’t believe any bias now taints hiring decisions, but said it may be time to list the many close relationships among county leadership and staff. “At this point we will do some study of it, but I don’t think it is running wild like everybody thinks it is,” Douglas said. Before taking the helm of the county, Douglas had chaired the Personnel Committee for five years. He noted that it may be time for the formation of a county Board of Supervisors ethics committee, which could oversee potential conflicts of interest and provide greater protection to the taxpayer. Supervisors typically only oversee the hiring of department heads, who in turn hire staff as long as the position already exists. County officials said department heads sometimes consult with the county manager and the personnel office before making a final decision. At least four members of the Doyle-Palmer family have been hired into various county departments. Most recently, Deborah Palmer’s sister-in-law, Patti Doyle, was hired by newly-elected District Attorney Kristy Sprague, and Deborah Palmer's brother, Patrick Doyle, was hired as a Department of Public Works mechanic only a few months prior. Patti Doyle’s daughter-in-law, Erica Fuller Doyle was hired in the Personnel Department and Palmer ’s sister-in-law, Shona, was hired to replace Patti Doyle as Deputy Republican Commissioner at the County Board of Elections. Deborah Palmer’s daughter, Brianne Weber, is employed in the County Clerk’s office under Joe Provancha, who is Dan Palmer’s cousin. When all the salaries are included, the Doyle-Palmer family grosses more than $250,000 a year of taxpayer money. But according to St. Armand Supervisor Joyce Morency, the lion’s share of this amount falls under the salaries of the county manager and the clerk of the board, both of whom have earned it, she said. Deborah Palmer earns more than $63,000 annually plus a longevity stipend of $1,680 while Dan Palmer draws a salary of about $95,000 as county manager plus another $18,000 for his position as Information Systems director. Morency noted that many county jobs require a civil service exam, and that the test scores can’t be affected by favoritism. “A lot of these jobs have those restrictions, but you can’t say that the person who scored the highest doesn’t deserve the job regardless if their brother or father works for the county or not,” Morency said. Morency called Palmer the most effective and fair County Manager she has seen in her 27 years on the board. But the Palmers aren’t the only officials with family members employed by county government. Others include Elizabethtown Supervisor Noel Merrihew’s daughter, Chelsea, who is employed in the County Clerk’s office, Wilmington Supervisor Randy Preston’s wife Wendy who works in the Office for the Aging, North Hudson Supervisor Robert Dobie’s sister-inlaw Sindy Brazee who is employed in the Board of Elections and Sheriff Henry Hommes’s son Scott Hommes who is employed in the county’s Department of Emergency Services. For their part, county officials are quick to note that Essex County is one of the largest employers in the region with 400 employees, and therefore some relatives working under the same roof is inevitable. Brushing off the allegations, Dan Palmer said Jan. 6 that he has been completely up front with the hirings of all of his relatives and has not imposed undue influence over the hiring process. To see video of Sandy Lewis’s presentation to the board go to www.denpubs.com and click on the headline that reads Citizens ask for full disclosure in Essex Co. government hiring.

Looking at supermarkets vs. supercenters

I

n my Super-Couponing classes, I’m often asked whether it’s easier just to shop at a supercenter, large grocery-discount store combinations that offer “every-day low prices,” or shop at a traditional, “more expensive” supermarket using coupons to achieve greater savings. If you’ve used coupons for any length of time, you know it’s possible to achieve much better savings at the supermarket by following the sales and matching them with coupons. The reason? Believe it or not, the “every-day low price” strategy is the culprit. Supercenters maintain low prices, avoiding the traditional cycle of sales and price cuts common at supermarket chains. At a supercenter, a $2.50 box of cereal will sell for $2.50 this week, next week and three weeks from now. Meanwhile, over at the supermarket, the price of the same brand of cereal is fluctuating from high to low. It may be $2.99 one week, $2.49 the next and $1.99 the next. Many shoppers find comfort and a sense of confidence in knowing what prices will be, week after week, at a supercenter. But the truth is price fluctuations make supermarkets the best places to shop for someone who’s trying to save even more money. As we’ve learned, making the most of the supermarket’s price cycle can be advantageous to shoppers. When the price of a certain cereal brand takes a dip to $1.99, it’s less expensive than the supercenter’s price. That’s when we move in and use our coupons to bring the price down even more. Sure, we could use the same coupon at the every-day low-price store. But when the sale price of the item at the supermarket drops below the everyday low price of the supercenter, we save even more buying the item at the supermarket. Recently, a new supercenter opened in my town. During its grand opening the store was abuzz with people lining up, excitedly waiting to take advantage of the low prices. I was curious to compare the new supercenter’s prices with those at other supermarkets in our area. I had just been to the supermarket the previous day and I had my receipt showing the sale prices (before my coupon savings) on 21 different items. As I strolled the aisles of the new store, I was shocked to see

the difference in prices on the same items I’d just purchased at the supermarket. What shocked me was how high they were. Of the 21 items on my receipt, 14 of the products’ “every-day” prices were significantly higher at the supercenter than the sale prices I’d paid one day earlier at the supermarket — in some cases, several dollars’ more on a single item. Six of the products I By Jill Cataldo purchased were more expensive at the supermarket, but we’re talking pennies more, not dollars — in many cases, the difference between $1.97 and $1.99. And while it’s true the regular prices of the supermarket sale items are often higher, smart shoppers aren’t paying those regular prices. We watch for sales and price drops, then move in and buy what we need when the price hits that low. Again, while I certainly could have used my coupons at the supercenter to buy the same products, I brought the supermarket’s lower prices down even more by using my coupons there. Low prices aren’t the only aspect of saving big, however. Supermarkets often offer additional promotions that can cut your grocery bill significantly. Next week, I’ll share the rest of this story and you’ll see how I took those groceries home from the supermarket for 69 percent less than I would have paid using the same coupons on the same items at the supercenter!

Betty’s Funny Farm expands with bed & breakfast By Mike Corey denpubs@denpubs.com MINERVA — Betty’s Funny Farm, a long-time fixture on 14th Rd. in Minerva, has recently expanded into a bed and breakfast. It now boasts the only one-bedroom bed & breakfast in the town of Minerva and boasts an upstairs bedroom suite complete with an adjacent sitting room and bathroom. A spiral staircase leads to the spacious area, which can accommodate one to four people. The Funny Farm opened in the 1990’s - with sheep, chickens, turkeys, dogs, cats and the occasional goats, it became a place to come for all kinds of local products. Betty’s offers fresh-fromthe-chicken eggs, hand-made wool products, maple syrup, quilts, pottery, jewelry, and much more.

Sporty’s From page 1 new toys during their toy drive. With the raffling of the restored truck, David Beale (Sporty) and his co-organizer Carl Russell of North Hudson can now expand the Toys for Kids program to the remaining three school districts in Essex County. Current participating districts include Elizabethtown, Keene, Lake Placid, Minerva, Newcomb, Schroon Lake, Westport, and Willsboro. The program started in a modest way four years ago by Beale Russell when 15 children

Betty LeMay, who has lived in Minerva for nearly 47 years and is a native of nearby Newcomb, said that business has been steady. “We are slightly out of the way, but we have been doing well since we opened on Thanksgiving weekend,” said Lemay. Howard the dog and Pete the cat greet visitors with a warm welcome upon arrival and never let them forget that they have arrived on a family farm. LeMay ran the Lemon Potpourri in downtown Olmstedville from 2000 until the summer of 2008, when the poor economy finally got the best of the business. Soon after, Betty pursued her Funny Farm. “I like doing what I do best - serving my guests,” said LeMay. For more information on the Funny Farm, visit www.bettysfunnyfarm com

benefitted from the donations. Today, a spacious and secure area has been established as a means to store all the donated items for the Toys for Kids program. Beale says that donations are accepted year-round, not just at Christmas time. Beale and Russell said they wished to thank everyone who purchased raffle tickets for the truck as well as all friends, customers, and businesses who supported the Toys for Kids program this past year. “Without the amazing support we’ve received this past year, this never would have happened,” said Beale. “We thrive on being more than a tavern – we are also a community center and museum!”

Earl Allen surprised his sister, Ona Dunkley, by stopping by to visit recently. To celebrate Amber Dasaro's birthday, she was taken to Red Lobster on Sunday evening. With her was Fabiann Conlon and Ryan and Keisha Sprague. Alonzo Conlon and sons, Aaron and Ian visited Earl Allen recently, then went to Ryan and Keisha's. His Mom, Kjerstia made supper for them and Dezore, Khaleah and Yanden. Jane Nevins thanks everyone for their calls and prayers for the couple of weeks that she was not out and about. Mr. and Mrs. Ed Craig and son from Cherry Valley area visited Earl Allen on Saturday.

Events There will be another sledding day on Jan. 23 at Camp Triumph. Everyone is invited and hope it will be a much warmer day than two weeks ago when the wind chill was way below zero. With the temperatures going up, it’s would be a good time to go for a walk on snowshoes or for a walk on a snowmobile trail. A lot of us do not get the exercise we need this time of year.

Happy Birthday to: Sarah Allen Lay Enjoy each and every day.

Alexander Funeral Home closed in North River To the News Enterprise: With the rather bleak economic forecast ahead of us, we have all had to make tough decisions to make our dollar stretch as far as possible. The staff at the Alexander Funeral Home, Inc. with branches in North River and Warrensburg are also feeling the pinch and must adjust our everyday operation to continue to offer affordable funeral services with the same caring and expert service you are accustomed to. With the public’s funeral needs evolving toward nontraditional services (i.e.-cremation without use of facilities), we have decided to close our North River branch. Throughout the last several years, we have noticed that the majority of our families are choosing alternate locations to hold their memorial services. Homes, churches, and community centers have become favorites and families are embracing these locations where they can also enjoy food and fellowship following the service. Most recently, my family rented the Tannery Pond Community Center in North Creek for my late father ’s memorial service. The community center was a cost effective, state of the art facility that met our needs to a tee. Continuing to serve our north-country families is of utmost importance to us. Feel free to call 251-2030 or stop in at our Warrensburg facility with any questions or concerns. Thank you for your understanding. John S. Alexander Alexander Funeral Home, Inc.

To the News Enterprise: As we enter a New Year, we are reminded that many in our community are less fortunate than we are. Families were forced to make decisions that have affected their livelihood. As one of many non-profits in the region who on a daily basis fill a need, we have to take stock in those who support our mission. I’d like to bring to your attention a generous gift made by one of our local financial institutions – Key Bank of the Capital Region. Earlier this month, Key Bank of the Capital Region made a gift of $2,500 to The American Red Cross Adirondack Saratoga Chapter. A $2,500 donation to the Red Cross simply equates to helping those in need and saving lives. A $2,500 donation will allow 24 families who were affected by a disaster to purchase shoes for their family. A $2,500 donation will allow us to provide disaster preparedness education to 10 school districts. A $2,500 donation will provide 5 families shelter after losing their home. We, as one of many other non-profit organizations in the community, applaud Key Bank’s long and generous relationship. Key Bank has allowed the American Red Cross to stay true to its mission to prevent, prepare, and respond to disasters. Thanks to Key Bank, we will be able to provide hope and assistance whenever called upon. We, as a community, as a region, as a state and as a nation have been affected by the recent financial events that have taken place around the world. It will take the collective efforts of both the non-profit and corporate sector to collectively turn this around. I have often said, “in times of great tragedy, the human spirit rises and neighbor helping neighbor becomes a way of life.” This gift from Key Bank to the American Red Cross Adirondack Saratoga Chapter is an example of the human spirit and neighbor helping neighbor.

Key Bank donates to the work of the Red Cross

To the News Enterprise: I write in response to the “Open letter to Senator Kirsten Gillibrand” by Anthony Moro that appeared in the Jan. 2 edition of the News Enterprise. Mr. Moro makes a number of interesting points regarding the current highly flawed Health Care Bill before Congress. Some of his points I agree with, such as the great necessity for tort reform to reduce the costs of malpractice insurance. And it is certainly true that the immensely negative and unconscionable influence that “moneyed special interests” have had on our politicians has severely crippled any efforts to give us real and meaningful reform. But, I believe there are some other important issues regarding health care reform in this country that he did not address. For starters, the present bill before congress is modeled in large measure on the one used in Massachusetts, which has already proved too costly and has failed to insure coverage for everyone. Private medical insurance companies (one of the more important “moneyed special interest” groups involved) have had a long go at providing our citizens with basic health insurance. In return, we have a country that suffers from a shorter average longevity, a higher infant mortality and more crowded emergency rooms than is experienced by other developed countries. And this poorer showing is at a cost (as a percentage of our GDP) much in excess of that born by our peers. Furthermore, we still have about 45 million people uninsured and many more under-insured (including veterans), something unknown in other developed countries with a singlepayer system. Not only are the administrative overhead costs of private insurers much greater than Medicare, for example, the additional administrative costs born by doctors and hospitals as a result of our multi-payer system are very financially burdensome and significantly raise the cost of our medical care. Yes, a single-payer system providing insurance for all our citizens is costly, but it would certainly be less costly for individuals and businesses than what we are all paying today for health care insurance. The relief from the timeconsuming hassle of struggling with our private insurers over whether or not our latest health care expense is covered or not would be most welcomed. Finally, it may be important to note that a single-payer system is not “socialized medicine” because the health care workers and hospitals remain private entrepreneurs and businesses (except, of course, for those operating within the VA system) and patients remain freely able to chose their physicians and hospitals. One does not have to consider basic health care as a right to be given to all to know that the health of all our citizens and workers is a vital part of our national security.

than it ever was. Family dinners may be a thing of the past and mothers no longer stay at home, but the skills are still relevant. “Home and Careers is more important than it was 20 years ago,” said Jeanette Harrington, Home and Careers teacher at Newcomb. Newcomb offers a 10week block schedule of Home and Careers classes to all elementary students and then makes electives available for high school students in areas of sewing, cooking, etiquette and others. The consensus among local educators is that lack of popularity is not a problem when it comes to Home and Careers classes. Many who want to see Home and Careers disappear tout that contemporary students are no longer interested in the skills taught by subject. Mary Jo Dickerson, su-

perintendent at Long Lake and certified Home and Careers instructor, said there is no shortage of interest among Long Lake students. They offer Home and Careers at the middle school level only. “My electives are the most requested in the school,” said Robin Strand, Home and Careers teacher at Indian Lake Central School. Indian Lake stresses the importance of the field and tries to do innovative and interesting things with it, according to David Snide, principal. “These classes are what keep students motivated and interested in school,” said Dickerson.

Many smaller programs use in-house teachers to teach Home and Careers instead of hiring a full-time instructor, much like Minerva does. A change in times, however, has made this field more important than ever, according to many local teachers. “Today, parents don't necessarily have the time to teach their children skills that were once taught at home,” said Skip Hults, superintendent at Newcomb Central School. “These skills must now be taught in schools.” Contrary to what critics say, Home and Careers may even be more important now

Workers needed to undertake census By Matt Bosley matt@denpubs.com GLENS FALLS — Unemployment rates remain high across the North Country and the nation as a whole, but a valuable government program may provide some temporary opportunities for those in need of a job. The 2010 United States Census is currently undertaking a nationwide recruiting effort for people to help with collecting population statistics. Mary Miller is assistant manager for recruiting at the local census office in Glens Falls, which is in charge of censustaking efforts in Clinton, Essex, Hamilton, Warren, Washington, and Fulton counties. “We are offering $13 an hour plus mileage,” said Miller, “and in these hard economic times, that is good money.” And that’s just where it starts, said George Demas, local census office manager in Glens Falls. There are positions available along a series of higher levels, each offering a higher rate of pay. Altogether, said Demas, the 2010 census will need to hire about 1,200 census-takers, also called enumerators, to seek out homes needed for the agency’s population count. “In order to work for the census, you have to take a test,” said Demas. The field test, which consists of 28 multiple choice questions dealing with basic language and math skills, will qualify prospective workers for the vast majority of available positions. A separate supervisors’ test is also available to qualify for some of the managerial positions. However, Demas encouraged all supervisor applicants to take the field test as well, since the Census office often looks to hire managers from inhouse. There is no need to pre-register for any of the tests, said Demas, and there’s no need for applicants to worry if they don’t perform well. “They can take the test again,” said Demas; “they can take it as many times as they want and the highest score counts.” Applicants who take either of the tests are added to a database that acts as a hiring pool for local census offices. Demas said hiring people from within the communities they canvas is a high priority. “We need local people to do that,” said Demas. “They’re more effective at that than the people who are not from that area because they know the streets and they know the neighborhood.” Another important skill is foreign language, he said, since some of the homes census-takers visit may not be Englishspeaking.

“Bilingual applicants are highly sought after,” he said. ‘We would go out of our way to hire a bilingual enumerator for that area.” Most census workers put in between 20 and 40 hours per week with very flexible schedules, said Demas, many choosing to work evenings and weekends when the houses they visit are more likely to be occupied. “They don’t go to every house,” said Demas. “They go to the houses that didn’t respond to the mail campaign.” Questionnaires are sent in March to all known homes and apartments across the country, explained Demas, and the majority are expected to respond by mail. “This year we have the shortest questionnaire in the history of the census,” said Demas, noting how the form has been shortened from years past to focus on just the most necessary information. “One of our main projects is to convince people of the value of being counted,” Demas said. Census information is primarily used in determining the population of an area for the purpose of determining representation in Congress and state legislatures. However, many institutions, both public and private, rely on the population data to determine the need for services in a given area. “Not only is it good for them to be a part of this information, Demas said, “but it benefits the community as well.” Though the aggregate information is widely distributed, Demas stressed that the Census does not allow specific information about individuals to be shared, even with other governmental agencies. “We will not give your personal information to the IRS, immigration, or the FBI,” Demas said. “We have the most secure database with the most accurate population data.” Still, for whatever reason, not every home responds to the questionnaire by mail. That’s why workers are needed to locate the homes and determine the status of residents. A list of local testing sites are available on the U.S. Census Web site, www.census2010.gov. Applicants can also call a toll-free number, 1-866-861-2010, to find out about upcoming tests in their area.

CEFLS Bookmobile looking for help ‘Fueling Literacy’ By Jeremiah S. Papineau jeremiah@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — The philosophy of those who operate the Clinton-EssexFranklin Library System has long been if you can’t bring people to the library, bring the library to the people. However, the nonprofit organization’s bookmobile, which serves the tri-county region, could one day run out of gas. CEFLS director Ewa Jankowska said the bookmobile travels thousands of miles each year, bringing books to more than 60 locations throughout Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties either not served by a local library or where difficult for residents to access one. Providing such a lofty service with limited government funding isn’t an easy task, said Jankowska. “We’re starting to get more and more in financial trouble because gas is getting more and more expensive,” she said. “So, we’ve been trying to find some kind of imaginative way to help offset those costs.” The library system thinks it’s found one way, said Jankowska. It’s begun the “Fueling Literacy” program, an idea originated by CEFLS board of trustees member Dr. Nancy J. Church. The program seeks sponsors of the bookmobile, primarily from the fuel service and automotive businesses throughout the North Country, to help with the approximately $120,000 annual cost of keeping the bookmobile in operation, said Jankowska. “We’ve been talking about doing this for a while,” she said. “And, at the end of last year, we started sending information to invite people to join in the program.” The program requests sponsorships at Diamond, Platinum, Gold, and Silver levels, with sponsors committing to donating 100, 75, 50 or 25 gallons of diesel fuel or gasoline, respectively, each month for one year. Sponsors may also contribute automotive repair or maintenance services at an equivalent value of each sponsorship level or make a financial contribution.

So far, the program is off to a slow start, said Jankowska, who attributes that partly to timing. “Maybe it was a little too late for people to donate in time for the fiscal year,” she said. Drawing donations from outside the Plattsburgh area could also be difficult for those who don’t understand how far the CEFLS Bookmobile reaches, she added. Though the CEFLS is based in Plattsburgh, Jankowska said it’s important people understand the bookmobile does service the tri-county region. “We go as far as Newcomb and Fort Covington in Franklin County and all across Essex County, too,” said Jankowska. “We are one of 23 library systems in the state, but we actually cover an area that’s the size of the State of Connecticut.” Since the bookmobile travels thousands of miles each year, Jankowska said it’s only a matter of time before the amount of money in the CEFLS budget isn’t enough to meet the cost of providing the service. “We never know how long we can function. Our funding is cut constantly by New York State,” said the director, adding the CEFLS is still awaiting funding for last year ’s budget. “It’s very scary.” Jankowska said she’s putting out a plea to the community, particularly businesses, to help keep the bookmobile on the road, fueling literacy. “It’s important we’re here to reach people who can’t get to a library,” she said. “This [fundraiser] is a wonderful opportunity for someone to participate in something very important for the community. If they’re interested in donating toward something very good and very worthwhile, this would be the thing.” Sponsor recognition packages are available at each level, added Jankowska, and donations are tax-deductible because of the organization’s 501(c)(3) nonprofit status. For more information, contact the CEFLS office at 563-5190 or visit their Web site at www.cefls.org.

The line only contained three seniors and two returning starters. The first quarter ended with a score of 7-10. The Mountaineers dealt well with the Bolton press and hustled for every gain. “With the way they hustled, they have nothing to be ashamed of,” said McGinn. Danielle St. Amour scored 15 points and Dominique Servelli added 11 in the win. Deidra Palmatier came off the bench to lead the Mountaineers with 12 points. The Bolton press started to work in their favor in the second half and a tired Mountaineers let a short lead slip from their grip. Point Guard Rebecca Bolton added eight points for the Mountaineers.

Adirondack bucks: Walking themselves to death?

But, I paid for our park with my taxes - how can you charge a fee to use it?

Currently, the Trail Supporter patch, available with a $5 donation, is one of the only methods for non-anglers, hunters or trappers to contribute to the Conservation Fund. The Habitat Stamp pin is a token of appreciation that is provided to individuals that make a voluntary $5 contribution to DEC to preserve wildlife habitat across NY state.

T

he concept of charging an entrance toll, a user fee or a parking permit to utilize public lands, such as those encompassed within the 6.5 million acres Adirondack Park is an issue that always stirs people’s emotions. However if the quality of the experience declines due to misuse and abuse of the woods and waters, lack of conservation law enforcement, wilderness protections and other similar matters, we will all pay in the end. On busy summer weekends there may be up to 100 rafts, each holding 8 to 10 people, riding a dam released bubble through the public waters of the Hudson River gorge. At a cost of around $75 to $85 per person, the 17-mile run from Indian Lake to North River provides nearly a dozen whitewater outfitters with a steady, three season income. Incorporated into each outfitter’s rate structure is a town imposed user fee for each paddler in the raft. Annually, these user fees contribute over $75,000 to the town of Indian Lake, a sizable chunk of change for a small town budget. The regularly scheduled water releases from Lake Abanakee have enabled outfitters to reliably offer rafting adventures throughout the summer and into the fall. And while the ride is exciting, it’s a far more family friendly experience than springtime runs when the raging Class V-VI river is filled with snowmelt and chunks of ice. To the paddlers, the user fees go unnoticed. Guests leave happy after a thrilling, 17-mile wilderness adventure, the hotels and bars are full, the restaurants are busy and local taxes are relatively stable. A similar process plays out on the Sacandaga River near Lake Luzerne, where a regularly scheduled dam release provides whitewater enthusiasts with a similar, watery bubble of opportunity all summer long. However, user fees collected for the use of the Sac’s public waters are deposited into the bank account of National Grid, a British consortium that now owns the former Niagara Mohawk Power Company dam. Is it fair to charge paddlers a fee for the use of a public river? Would it be any different than collecting money from hikers utilizing trails in the Forest Preserve or from paddlers utilizing local streams and ponds? The very notion goes against principles of our national culture. It violates our inherent right of a sense of adventure, the freedom to roam at will and the ingrained, pioneer spirit that seems to dwell in the very core of most outdoor travelers. Such is the conundrum currently facing many state and national agencies charged with the responsibility of managing our nation’s wild lands. In future years, the value of our wild lands will surely increase due to both the financial and climate changes that lie ahead. While officials interested in implementing user fees on public park lands may be questioned about the fairness of charging fees for taxpayer-supported operations, collecting a fee for the cost of a so-called "free" service has its advantages. "The issue of the fairness of user fees was answered in the parks and recreation industry 15 years ago," explained Ken Conway, a Park Director in Cameron County, Texas. "Users of parks are willing to pay a reasonable fee for a quality service. The whole recreation industry nationwide has really em-

braced user fees as a way to make sure there's support in the budget from year to year." Camping and RV sites on South Padre Island generated over $1.6 million in revenue for Cameron County, Texas last year. It has been estimated that one out of every five US travelers will choose an outdoor vacation this year. But, it is a fact that over 100 million people live within a day’s drive of the Adirondack Park. Do the math! If just a $10 fee was collected from only the estimated 200,000 visitors that visit the Eastern High Peaks annually, the state could collect an easy $2 million. Think of the income that New York state could generate with the registration of mountain bikes, as it is done in popular destinations such as Moab and Red Rock. Or even canoes. Of course, for anyone purchasing a hunting, trapping or fishing license, such registrations would be included. Registrations could be purchased through a special unit of the motor vehicles office. Purchases could be accomplished instantly via the current DECALS computer licensing system. User fees are currently being collected for the use of state parklands in nearly a dozen states including California, Texas, Wisconsin, Colorado, Oregon, Arizona, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and New Hampshire. Could New York be next? Many people don’t realize it, but New York is already there! For several years, New York State has collected user fees, through the Department of Motor Vehicles. ATV and snowmobile registrations include fees dedicated to the development of off-road trails. Sadly, the money has been paid, but development of the trails is still lagging. If user fees were to be collected from all user groups, including hikers, bikers, paddlers. climbers and skiers, the proceeds would have return to the trails and bridges, put in sites and accessible waters. In 2006, the DEC instituted a voluntary user fee for hikers with its Trail Supporter patch. All monies raised from sales of the $5 patch are dedicated to the Conservation Fund's Outdoor Recreation, Trail Maintenance, and Development Account to help maintain and enhance non-motorized trails throughout New York State. The first year of the program, the DEC sold 482 items with $2,320 revenue. In 2009, only 131 of the voluntary Trail Supporter Patches sold for a total of $655. Trails Supporter Patches are available for purchase for a $5 donation at all outlets where sporting licenses are sold and they are also sold and on DEC's website. In a comparable effort focused on hunters and anglers, DEC sales of a $5 habitat stamp, dedicated to the protection and enhancement of fish and wildlife habitat, garnished over $4,000 through voluntary contributions. A lapel pin comes with the donation. I usually purchase both items, along with my annual Sportsman’s license. At a cost of nearly $90, the annual license is a bargain. It lets me take home a fair quantity of locally raised, free range, all organic, fish, game, fowl and other all natural collectibles such as fresh berries, wild mushrooms and an assortment of other woodland table fare. Programs such as the Trail Supporter Pass and Habitat Stamp allow users to exhibit their contribution. The development of similar patches for paddlers, rock climbers, backcountry skiers and snowshoers would allow other user groups could provide the opportunity for everyone to contribute and be represented. Such an effort would also go a long way toward reducing the alienation and fragmentation of various user groups. I have found that most sportsmen and women, are also avid hikers and paddlers, skiers and snowshoers. In actuality, it appears that members of the various user groups often have more commonalities than they have differences. We all share a common bond in our desire to enjoy our respective activities, even if some of the pursuits are limited by the season. The annual invasion of the ‘leaf peepers’ is one example of a user group traveling the woodlands of the Adirondacks seeking something other than fish or game for their efforts. Birders, who venture north to view the massive flights of snow geese along Lake Champlain are yet another growing user group. There are many more. Next week, I will investigate various concepts of implementing user fees. Reader comments and suggestions are most welcome. Joe Hackett is a guide and sportsman residing in Ray Brook.

D

o dominant bucks “rut themselves to death” in their quest to locate and breed does during the mating season here in the Adirondacks? I discussed that question the other day with Jim Westover of Westport, himself a longtime avid hunter. Jim said he recently saw a show on one of the outdoor channels that focused on our deer herd in the Adirondacks. The premise of the show was that our bucks rarely live past age 4 or 5 and a half or reach their true potential because they are forced to wander great distances to find does to breed — at times traveling upward of 15 miles a day. “They basically said our bucks walk themselves to death because we don’t have the number of deer per square mile that there are in other parts of the country,” Jim said. “They said it takes something like nine deer per square mile to keep a buck from roaming.” The video, he said, showed large dominant bucks heading into the winter months completely emaciated from the rut, only to succumb to the elements or predators because they lacked the fat reserves needed to make it through the winter. I asked Ed Reed, senior wildlife biologist with the DEC in Raybrook, his take on the findings of the show. He said while some of the claims sound plausible, other data may have been sensationalized. “For instance, how did they determine that a buck needs nine does per square mile to be ‘content,’” Reed asked. “Some recent research shows that bucks actually breed with only three to five does each year, and that younger bucks do a significant amount of breeding.” Reed said a 5-and-a-half-year-old buck is considered old anywhere in the northern U.S. and said the Adirondacks may have an even higher percentage of older deer than other areas because they have so many areas to escape hunters. “We check very few old bucks at meat lockers each year, but do check some older than 5 and a half every year. I checked a 10-and-a-half-year-old buck a few years ago that had a decent 10-point rack but looked to be in pretty poor body condition,” he said. Nevertheless, Reed said some of the assertions made during the show sound plausible. For example, it is well documented that bucks lose body condition during the rut — at times losing 20 percent of their body weight — and must rebuild fat reserves following the rut to increase their chance of survival. An early onset of severe winter weather can make putting those reserves on even more difficult, he noted. But, Reed said the harsh weather and poor nutrition here plays as big a part in bucks, and does for that matter, dying at a young age as the rut. And, Reed said, DEC staff rarely find a dead buck in the deer yards during their annual spring dead deer surveys. “Our whitetails have been dealing with the rigors of breeding and harsh winters for many thousands of years, so I think they have evolved a solid strategy for survival,” he said. “Evolution favors the strategy that leads to the perpetuation of the species, not necessarily the longevity of individuals.”
