NEWCOMB — Now that the papers are signed for the $30 million state easement on 89,000 acres of former Finch, Pruyn land in the central Adirondacks, Hamilton and Essex County tourism officials are hoping the new snowmobile trail that cuts through the easement, from Newcomb to Indian Lake, will boost winter business. The 14-mile trail, known to snowmobilers as Trail 538, is now open along logging roads on lands owned by ATP Timberland Invest, which recently signed the landmark deal with New York state. The Newcomb Snowmobile Club is grooming the northern half of the trail, and the Indian Lake Snowarriors club is grooming the southern half.

At long last ...

Gore Mountain Interconnect has arrived By Lindsay Yandon NORTH CREEK — A crowd gathered at Ski Bowl Park in North Creek as a ribbon was cut to mark the opening of the Hudson chairlift and introduced the completed interconnect be-

tween Gore Mountain and the historic Ski Bowl last Saturday, Jan. 26. The redeveloped terrain on Little Gore Mountain, which now features snowmaking and trails for all ability levels, is now open for skiers and snowboarders, which provides access to the rest of Gore Mountain's multi-

Adirondack Review Board objects to state purchase of woodlands By Chris Morris ADIRONDACKS — The Adirondack Local Government Review Board unanimously passed a resolution Jan. 26 opposing the pending state purchase of some 75,000 acres of Adirondack land from a conservation group. The state is expected to soon purchase more than 65,000 acres of former Finch Pruyn timberlands and about 15,000 acres of land in the Follensby Pond area from the Adirondack Chapter of the Nature Conservancy. The Review Board’s resolution urges the state Adirondack Park Agency to comply with the State Land Master Plan by recommending against the state Department of Environmental Conservation’s

potential purchase of what review board officials call highly productive timberland. Review Board Executive Director Fred Monroe said Gov. Andrew Cuomo should commission a study on the economic and social impacts of further state land acquisitions inside the Blue Line. Monroe added that the state’s current fiscal crisis is a good argument against purchasing more land. “We know the state is experiencing horrible budget problems — there are plans to cut back on Medicaid, welfare, education — and we just paid $30 million out of the taxpayers’ pocket to purchase a conservation easement on the remaining Finch lands,” he said. “That happened on the same day that Gov. Cuomo reaffirmed layoffs for 900 state employees — and there’s now talk about laying off another 15,000.”

Pilot pre-k program a success in Johnsburg

JOHNSBURG — When 1:30 p.m. rolls around at Johnsburg Central School (JCS), Darlene Urbonowicz’s prekindergarten students often don’t want to go home, she said. Especially last Thursday — sledding day. JCS’s pre-kindergarten program is in its first year at JCS and was started after the Cheerful Crickets pre-school program at Tannery Pond Community Center ended last year.

The program at JCS enrolls 15 students and hired Urbonowicz as the full-time teacher this year. She brings 31 years of teaching experience to the new classroom, including 18 at JCS and 10 at the kindergarten level. The students begin their day at 9 a.m. and move through academic classes, lunch, art, music, library and gym all in their own classroom. Those close to the program feel that it has done nothing but add to the positive education environment at JCS. “The students are better prepared to move forward,” said Urbonowicz. She acknowledged how academics are becoming increasingly difficult at the younger levels. “The core curriculum in kindergarten classes is changing and academics are becoming harder. Students are now reading and writing in kindergarten,” said Urbonowicz. “Prekindergarten provides them with a good foundation to succeed.” She hopes that parents become as involved in the early learning as possible and welcomes them to join the classroom at any time. “I have seen first-hand the great opportunity this has created for the children of this community,” said Jeremy Williams of JCS’s Parent Teacher Student Association. His daughter Caroline was a student at Cheerful Crickets and now attends the pre-kindergarten program at JCS. The JCS program eases the stress of the transition between pre-kindergarten and kindergarten by welcoming students everyday as well as following the existing JCS programs, according to Urbonowicz. “I hope it’s here to stay,” she said. JCS superintendent Mike Markwica is encouraged by the success the program has had in its first year. “Our first year is going great,” he said. “We have learned a lot to make the program better in coming years.” Extensive research was done before starting the pilot program to anticipate the size of the class, evaluate costs, etc. and Markwica feels that research was accurate. “We are satisfied with the numbers and our original predictions have proved correct,” he said. “Our future kindergarten classes will be stronger because of this program.” Controversy surrounded the the pre-kindergarten program at JCS in its formative stages as many felt that it was too costly and would present a strain on the school’s budget. Markwica feels that those concerns have been deemed incorrect, according to the success of the program. “It is well worth the cost and it shows in the progress of our students,” he said.

From page 1 Adirondacks,” said Sen. Elizabeth Little, R-Queensbury. “This is an incredible moment on an incredible day.” The new trails follow the profile of the same terrain North Creek’s earliest skiers traveled. The Hudson chair lifeline was once home to a 1946 t-bar. When Little asked the surrounding crowd to raise a hand if they had skied the original Little Gore, the majority of hands shot into the air. “This is a historic preservation project,” said ORDA chairman Joe Martens. “The Town of Johnsburg pushed very hard for this project and made clear just how important this was to the town.” Little also praised the interconnect as a means to support the economic development of the village of North Creek. “What this will do for the hamlet of North Creek will involve them in the whole ski experience,” she said. “We will be a destination. It goes to show that persistence pays off.” As Emily Stanton, Gore Mountain marketing director, welcomed the many skiers and riders who waited to be the first to try the new lift she commended the Hudson chairlift as, “the starting point of an elevation of 3600 feet and a new starting point for the region.” “It is the people of Gore that make this special,” she said. “I wish I had a bottle of champagne right now.” Skiers and snowboarders can now park at the Ski Bowl and have access to all of Gore Mountain. The connection brings Gore the title of being the sixth largest ski resort in the east and is a result of years of planning, beginning with the formative ideas of past Johnsburg supervisor Bill Thomas. Current supervisor, Sterling Goodspeed, remembers when people didn’t know there was a village at the base of Gore Mountain. “The world just found our village at the base of the mountain,” he said.

Sleds From page 1 Snowmobiling has long been a popular sport in the Essex County town of Newcomb, and it’s been a source of income for some small businesses, like the Newcomb House Bar & Grill and Aunt Polly's Bed & Breakfast. But Newcomb has traditionally been seen as a “dead end” by the snowmobiling community, a destination, yes, but on the way to nowhere. Two main factors added to this perception: No gas pump in town and no through-trails for snowmobiles. This winter, that's all changed, and Newcomb is poised to become a haven for snowmobiling. The Northwoods Diner and General Store in Newcomb recently opened a gas pump — the first one in town in almost a decade — and the new snowmobile trail from Newcomb to the Hamilton County town of Indian Lake is now open. This is being seen as a perfect recipe for economic opportunity in Newcomb, now that sledders can drive from the town of Long Lake to Newcomb to Indian Lake and destinations south. It creates a long-distance loop for snowmobiles traveling from Inlet and Old Forge, known widely as the “Snowmobile Capital of the East.” The new trail has only been open less than a month, and early snow wasn’t optimal for a smooth-riding base. Yet there has been some interest in Trail 538. Alexandra Roalsvig, director of the Long Lake Tourism


Department, recently spoke to some snowmobilers who were gassing up at the local Stewart's Shop, and she liked what she heard. “They came to Long Lake because they knew they could get to Indian Lake from Long Lake,” Roalsvig said. “By hooking up with Indian Lake, we're getting a whole new audience.” There are more than 100 miles of free, groomed trails in the town of Long Lake, home to the Moonlighters Snowmobile Club. There are no permit fees, which could draw sledders from other areas, such as the towns of Old Forge and Inlet, where permits are required on the hundreds of groomed trails there. And connecting to Indian Lake can draw long-distance sledders from as far away as Speculator. Indian Lake Chamber of Commerce President Nancy Harding, co-owner of Marty's Chili Nights restaurant in Indian Lake, said she hopes the new trail will attract more snowmobilers to her town. “It should be a help in the long run,” Harding said, adding that the chamber has already received some inquiries about Trail 538. Any town with restaurants and lodging has an opportunity to draw the snowmobiling crowd, especially those who want to travel long distance. Long Lake and Indian Lake are ready, but Newcomb today only offers a couple of choices in the winter. Newcomb Supervisor George Canon said he hopes that will change with time and that Trail 538 will spark some economic development in town. There is even talk about extending snowmobile trails to Minerva and North Hudson. When the Nature Conservancy announced the $30 million easement purchase in a press release on Dec. 30, 2010, officials said the agreement — which limits development, allows for the harvest of timber, and opens up the land to outdoor recreation — “supports timber industry jobs, boosts the state’s recreation and tourism economy and, at the same time, preserves 89,000 forested acres concentrated in the geographic heart of the Adirondacks.” In the release, tourism officials beamed with excitement over the possibilities for increased tourism traffic. One after the other, they lined up to offer their take on the purchase. Jim McKenna, executive director of the Lake Placid-based Adirondack Regional Office of Sustainable Tourism said, “The Adirondacks are repeatedly picked by AAA as New York’s number one destination for leaf peeping … Many of the lands protected by this agreement are the very places people travel here to see in all of their autumn splendor — helping to increase economic activity to our communities.” Dave Perkins, executive director of the New York State Snowmobilers’ Association said, “Snowmobiling generates $800 million in spending per year in New York state. If you look at a statewide map of the trail system, there’s a hole in Essex County, which means we’ve been missing out on a share of that money as a result. The trails we can now use

because of this conservation easement are helping to fill that gap in a big way.” Barry Hutchens, Indian Lake town supervisor said, “Indian Lake has been paying to lease snowmobile trails on an annual basis … Now, with the uncertainty associated with year-to-year leasing erased, we see these trails as permanent and valuable assets that can help our struggling winter economy and our town budget appropriations.” Canon added, “This easement is a step toward making Newcomb a central hub for snowmobiling and winter recreation. It’s pretty great to get some real economic benefit from it.” Canon, Roalsvig and Harding all believe that their towns can become snowmobile hubs thanks to Trail 538. But will it make an economic impact this year? They all say it’s too early to tell.

More chairlift woes at Whiteface Mountain

Review Board From page 1

By Chris Morris

LAKE PLACID — Skiers at Whiteface Mountain were left stranded on chairlifts twice over the weekend and into this week. Officials with the state Olympic Regional Development Authority say the Lookout Mountain chairlift experienced a malfunction at about 11 a.m. Sunday. That incident left skiers hanging in the air for some 45 minutes. ORDA spokesman Jon Lundin told news outlets the malfunction was caused by a faulty communications wire. Additionally, the Summit chairlift began experiencing problems at about 11 a.m. Saturday, due to a reported problem with weighting along the lift cables. That forced Whiteface crews to shutdown the lift through Monday. No injuries were reported following the malfunctions. In December, a ski patrol member was injured following a lift malfunction that left 76 people in the air for nearly two hours. Last week, an ORDA employee was seriously injured while performing maintenance on a lift at Kids Kampus.

Monroe said now is not the time for government to spend more than $40 million, claiming that such a purchase would put North Country residents out of work. “We know that’s what is going to happen, when you take that working forest and make it a non-working forest,” he said. “There just doesn’t seem to be a good reason for that. It’s been well-protected for generations and managed by Finch before there even was a forest preserve.” But Nature Conservancy spokeswoman Connie Prickett said her agency has been working on the Finch project since 2007 and has included local governments and town boards every step of the way in the decision-making process. Prickett also notes that the overall plan for the Finch lands was presented as an integrated package. She says various easement and fee components boost a variety of economic and recreational opportunities. Nature Conservancy Executive Director Mike Carr described the Review Board resolution as “unfortunate,” noting that his agency has worked hard with each municipality involved with the Finch project, first with the easement sale and then with the fee purchase. “We think this will be a big blast to the tourism and recreation economy in a lot of these towns,” he said. For his part, Monroe says members of the review board have met with Gov. Cuomo’s environmental secretary regarding last week’s resolution.\ Monroe says that if the new governor is serious about getting New York’s fiscal house in order, he should consider calling for an in-depth study into the purchase of land in the Adirondacks. Newly-elected Review Board Chairman Gerald Delaney of Saranac Lake said the state should consider the economic and cultural impacts of their preservation purchases. “The state should buy only truly unique pieces of land like the high peaks and sensitive areas like swamp land,” he said. They should leave the working forests alone before we lose our heritage, jobs and economy.” Journal Editor Thom Randall contributed to this report.

Events remind us that respect is key to tolerance S

everal events have hit home with me recently, causing me pause and to reflect about the true meaning and impact they have, not only on my life, but the lives of all who share this small world we all call home. Perhaps like you, I pull from life experiences to draw perspective on current events. I thought back to my childhood upbringing. I was taught to respect the differences of others and to be tolerant of those around me, for they also had “rights,” In the early 1960s, my family moved from western Pennsylvania to the deep south, in Texas. Two situations crossed my mind. For those of you who may not have been around back then, the nation was dealing with severe racial issues and African Americans in our society had not yet achieved true equality. I recall after school I would hang around and help the African American janitor empty waste paper cans and sweep the floors. Our neighborhood wasn’t racially diverse, but I had no preconceived notions about such things. I must have been in second grade or so and no one was paying me or forcing me by way of punishment to be there. We came from very different backgrounds, but I recall enjoying his company. He was a nice man and we laughed and talked about the events of our day. Of course, I was pretty much oblivious to the racial issues, except for some cautioning by my parents. I didn’t know or care about the racial events swirling around. He accepted me

That seems to be the good thing about our area. Whether you know the person, or the family or someone who knows either, show that you care with a kind word to everyone.

and I him. About the same time I recall a school yard bully. He was about a year or two older than I, and for a period, every time he would see me, he would grab me by the shoulders and throw me to the ground. And I wasn’t the only one who suffered this ritual fate. I didn’t know him, nor did I ever have a run-in with him before this started, but being larger and tougher in appearance than me at the time, I had no choice but to brush myself off and try my best to steer clear of him on the playground at recess. Then one day he approached me, and as I prepared to bite the dust, he stopped, apologized and asked if we could be friends. At the time it seemed like a great alternative to not being friends. As we palled around, I discovered we had many differences and oddly enough he was an atheist going to a Catholic school. On occasion, the kid would eat dog or cat food. Gainesburgers had recently been introduced and I recall he considered them a delicacy. Despite his encouragement, there was no way I was putting that stuff to my lips. We would talk about religious beliefs, and while we never swayed each other, it never seemed to matter to either of us. I later learned more about the difficult life and poverty his family experienced. As we fast forward to 2011, I can’t help but wonder why we can’t accept the differences among us and be more tolerant of each other. As a young child, I was able to accept people for who they were with no strings attached. But more and more these days people seem to be confusing freedoms with an entitlement to control. We hear stuff like, “I’m entitled to have whatever I want and anyone who stands in the way of my choices will just have to change their ways because this is MY America and anything that I find opposed to MY Way of Life must be wrong!” The Bill of Rights guarantees us certain freedoms, among them the right to assemble, to speak freely, to respect the establishment and practice of religion, to be secure in our homes and to not unduly deny the rights of others. But these laws designed to protect the freedoms of all are being used by a few who find some actions or activities offensive to their beliefs. In Essex County government, some find a short prayer before the session offensive. In Tupper Lake, despite strong community support, we see environmental groups

blocking needed economic development proposed by the Adirondack Club. Last year, we saw some of the same groups behind blocking the development on the Lewis Family Farm in Essex. There are many things going on all around us that some find offensive and yet others find very acceptable and that’s OK. We can and will have differences. It is those differences that make us strong and unique. But there are big differences between offending actions and seeking to control everything you see, hear and want. You might be offended by hearing a prayer. So come to the meeting a few minutes late or close your eyes and listen to your iPod… you’ll survive the experience. You might be offended that in this tiny hamlet of Tupper Lake a resort club and homes will be built, people will have jobs, storefronts will be a filled, and money will again flow through this once prominent community improving the quality of life for those who make this area their home… you’ll survive if they build it, while many may not survive if it doesn’t get built. Last week I attended the Bullying Discussion hosted by MAPP. The discussion focused on bullying in our schools. We heard about local statistics, watched a video that featured a number of children around the country who have been bullied because of simple and meaningless differences. Some have even been driven to commit suicide. Like my friend in grade school or the elderly janitor who taught me much about people, I didn’t have to agree with their beliefs or the things they did to accept them. Skin color, religious or political beliefs, mode of dress, color of your hair, where you choose to live or other life style choices ... there are plenty of days I shake my head at the actions of others who think and act differently than I, but, in the end, so long as they are doing no personal harm to anyone, I can respect their right to share this small world and enjoy the control, over their life choices, that I have the right to expect in my own life choices.

In response to easment purchase To the News Enterprise: Last week, you printed an article that was critical of the state’s recent purchase of a conservation easement on about 89,000 of land and water in the Adirondack Park from the Nature Conservancy. The writer overlooked some important facts. The state spent $30 million from the Environmental Protection Fund to buy development rights and recreational rights on these former Finch, Pruyn & Co. lands. But the deal was even better for the economy than for the environment. The money was spread across 27 Adirondack towns, where new snowmobile trails, hiking trails and fishing access will be opened to the public for the first time in 130 years. That’s a $1.1 million average investment in each town’s tourism. The deal had the support of all 27 Adirondack town supervisors, every one of whom knew the details and negotiated specific benefits for his/her community. For example, North Hudson, Newcomb, Long Lake, Minerva and Indian Lake will share a brand new trail network as part of 75 additional miles of snowmobile trails that can be wider and more easily groomed than trails on public Forest Preserve. Other towns asked for and received access via float plane to remote lakes. In addition, the Nature Conservancy made sure the former Finch papermill in Glens Falls was guaranteed a supply of pulp timber from these lands for at least the next 20 years. At the same time, the state’s easement purchase prevented the loss of timber industry jobs that would have come if these lands were subdivided and purchased for other purposes. Once something like that happens, the opportunity to harvest the trees for paper and wood products is gone forever – on some of the park’s most productive timberlands. Some people might be surprised to learn that the work of landsaving organizations such as The Nature Conservancy, Open Space Institute, Conservation Fund, and others, is what has saved the timber industry in the Adirondacks. All of the park’s major timber companies fled the Northeast in the past 25 years, selling their lands and closing their mills. This includes Champion International, International Paper, Diamond International, Domtar Industries, Finch, Lyons Falls Pulp & Paper, and a host of others. Together, they owned more than one million acres of private forests in the Adirondack Park. It all went on the market. If those companies had sold their lands to developers, no one would be talking about putting public trails on them. We would all be watching the new owners build fences and put up posted signs. We would be wondering what might happen to those forests we know and love. Instead, more than two dozen Adirondack towns took matters into their own hands and forged a deal that would benefit everyone. This is a reason to celebrate, not secondguess. John F. Sheehan Albany

Thoughts on high cost To the News Enterprise: Local residents are increasingly upset with the high cost and wasteful practices that Johnsburg Central School authorities have fostered over the years. Teachers, who play the most important role in educating our children, now work in a less than efficient environment, taxpayers are saddled by decades of burdensome property taxes and above all, JCS student’s performance and future careers suffer from poor and undemanding educational culture. The report prepared by the Johnsburg Citizens Budget Committee (JCS-CBC)and submitted to the school board last Oct. illustrates the shortcomings of school management. Since that time school authorities have done their best to bury the report. On Jan. 19, the Center for American Progress published a major study entitled (Return on Educational Investment: A district by district evaluation of educational productivity). The result of this study supports the key findings of the JCS-CBC Report. It rates the Johnsburg Central School District among the most expensive and among the lowest achievement in terms of educational performance of all school districts it evaluated in NYS. (Ratings were generated after adjusting for factors such as transportation, cost of living and student needs like special education, free or reduced meals, etc. the full report and district-bydistrict comparisons are available at http// As the public becomes more aware of high costs and wasteful practices, JCS authorities must respond more seriously and more responsibly than they have so far.

News of the Week Tupper officer slept in car TUPPER LAKE — Tupper Lake Police Chief Tom Fee told the Village Board of Trustees earlier this month that he caught one of his officers sleeping on the job while he was supposed to be on patrol.

New retail complex planned for Chester By Thom Randall CHESTER — An ambitious retail development is planned for Northway Exit 25, and area officials say it might boost tourist and commercial activity in Chestertown and Brant Lake. John Behan, a community planner and architectural designer from Chestertown and Saratoga Springs, is planning to build a two-story retail center, called Chestertown Gateway, next to the Exit 25 southbound offramp. The the L-shaped building is intended for a convenience store and gas station, plus a restaurant and shops to sell Adirondack foods and crafts. The development, set on a two-acre parcel at the intersection of I-87 Northway and state Rte. 8, has received siteplan approval from the town of Chester Planning Board. Behan said this week that if he and his wife Cynthia line up some additional investors in the project, Chestertown Gateway could be open for business as soon as summer 2012. “We want to offer something really nice and different to prompt travelers to get off the highway — someplace nice and pleasant,” Behan said. “We see a need for a unique place for businesses that’s affordable, accommodating both local folks and travelers.” He said Chestertown Gateway would offer both travelers’ necessities and locally created products that would support various area businesses, whether it’s Adirondack furniture and décor items, locally-grown or processed foods, or quality mountain crafts. Chestertown Gateway, he added, would add up to dozens of new jobs and bring in revenue from travelers who would not otherwise be visiting and spending money in Chester. The building would feature Adirondack-style architectural cues, including styling details that would be reflected in the canopy overhanging four gasoline pumps. Initial renderings show a building with multiple dormers, a deck and a historic, semi-rustic appearance. Behan added that his development was likely to boost business in downtown Chestertown by drawing mo-

Chestertown Gateway, a proposed commercial complex just off I-87 southbound at Exit 25, has been approved. Its developer and designer, John Behan of Chester and Saratoga, is now seeking additional backers. A summer 2012 opening is envisioned for the development, which is to include a convenience store and perhaps a restaurant and shops with local products. torists off the Northway — and many of them would likely venture down Rte. 8 to explore the hamlet, which has experienced a drastic decline in tourist traffic over the past several decades. “It will be a pleasant place offering unique things, and will supplement what’s now available,” he said. Town of Chester Supervisor Fred Monroe agreed that the development, as proposed with local crafts and foods, would be good for commerce in town. “The traveling public loves places like that — it sounds like an idea that would attract people and draw them into downtown and help all local businesses,” Monroe said. Behan said the project was likely to cost between $1 million and $2 million

to build, and would have 10,000 square feet of space. Both the upper story and lower story would be on ground level, as the site is sloped, he said. John Behan, the Principal of Behan Planning & Design, has been helping local citizens in their efforts to beautify and revitalize the Chestertown hamlet. Mary Jane Dower, chair of the Chestertown Main Street Enhancement Committee, said that Behan’s Chestertown Gateway would help boost downtown commerce, as well as enterprises across Chester and Horicon. “This development sounds wonderful — it’s a big start in helping revitalize Chestertown,” she said. “Any way to get visitors to go downtown will be great.”

Gillibrand tries to halt congressional raises By Chris Morris WASHINGTON, D.C. — New York’s junior senator introduced legislation this week aimed at halting congressional pay raises. Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand’s bill would prohibit automatic raises for members of Congress. 12 of her colleagues in the Senate are cosponsoring the legislation. The bill mirrors a similar one introduced last year by Senator Russ Fein-

gold, a Democrat from Wisconsin. According to Gillibrand, the legislation would end the annual cost-of-living adjustment provided to members of the Senate and the House of Representatives. “Hardworking, middle class workers are never guaranteed an annual pay raise, and neither should their leaders in Congress,” Gillibrand said in a prepared statement. In 2010 and 2011, individual bills eliminated the pay raise temporarily. Gillibrand’s legislation would permanently end the practice.

Authorities: couple abused welfare system QUEENSBURY — Daniel B. Saville, 58, and Lisa M. Ireland, 46, were charged last week with the theft of more than $175,000 in public assistance benefits over more than five years, according to the Warren County Daniel B. Lisa M. Sheriff’s Office. Saville Ireland The woman collected rent subsidies to live at 946 West Mountain Road in Queensbury, which she rented from Saville, but actually lived with him at his Lupine Lane residence, police said. Ireland was arraigned Jan. 27 on one count of second-degree Welfare Fraud, 15 counts of second-degree Criminal Possession of a Forged Instrument and 24 counts of first-degree Offering a False Instrument. The following day, Saville was arraigned on one count of thirddegree Grand Larceny, one count of third-degree Welfare Fraud, and six counts of first-degree Offering a False Instrument.

ACC hopes the program will grow by next fall.


Scaroon Manor to once again offer camping Disabled access features touted By Thom Randall CHESTER — The state campground named for the historic resort Scaroon Manor will be open to public camping beginning this summer, a state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) employee recently told Adirondack officials. The sprawling former luxury resort on the shores of Schroon Lake is being upgraded with new facilities to convert it from a state day-use destination to accommodate overnight camping — with 62 campsites. June 24 is the target date for the opening of the upgraded facilities. On Jan. 26, DEC Region 5 Operations Director Jim McEnaney told members of the Adirondack Park Local Government Review Board that his agency has made a range of changes that include making the

Scaroon Manor Campground and Day Use Area one of the most accommodating facilities of its kind to those with mobility disabilities. Scaroon Manor’s rest rooms, showers, beaches, docks and buildings will all have unobstructed access, McEnaney said. Even some trails on the 241-acre campground will be paved, he added. “We’re excited about the project and what it will offer campers,” he said, noting it will offer the most barrier-free access of any facility of its kind across the state, if not the nation. “It will be a beautiful facility.” Review Board Executive Director Fred Monroe welcomed the announcement. “This is very good news, and it will be a boost to the economy in northern Warren County,” he said. During 2011, half of the campsites will be available to the first campers who arrive onsite. The other half will be offered only by prior reservations.

Scaroon Manor was a grand, exclusive resort that dates back to the 1880s. It closed in 1962 and was purchased i8n 1967 by the state, which had many of the buildings burned down, while some cabins were moved to Pottersville. Remains of a 500seat amphitheater, where vaudeville shows and world-class shows were presented, remains on the property. Scaroon Manor was chosen as the setting for the classic movie “Marjorie Morningstar,” which starred Gene Kelly and Natalie Wood. McEnaney also announced that the state plans in upcoming years to develop a milelong nature trail to connect the Scaroon Manor Campground with primitive hikein state campsites, to be built at nearby Camp Cayuga. Campers may reserve a campsite by contacting Reserve America online at or by phone at 1-800-456-CAMP (1-800-456-2267).

Where’s the trail?


was still a teenager, when I began working for the recently created, NYS Department of Environmental Conservation in the spring of 1974. My first assignment was as a laborer with a Trail Crew tmaintaining the hiking trail to the summit of Hurricane Mountain, near Elizabethtown. The Fire Tower Observer was our supervisor, and he had a real bad attitude with the new agency, which he called the blankety-blank, “Department of Eternal Consternation”. He regularly complained that the new agency, which replaced the venerable, old Conservation Department, was composed of “more fools than tools”, especially since we went through equipment faster than the department could afford to replace it. Trail work was a muddy, buggy and backbreaking endeavor. We were particularly hard on the equipment after my fellow laborers learned if they broke the handles off enough shovels, our efforts would be relegated to trimming bushes and whipping weeds; rather than moving boulders and installing water bars along the steep trail. At the time I was an avid hiker, often climbing in the High Peaks with Geoff Carleton, a well-known birder from Elizabethtown. For me, the trail work was entertaining, with a mix of hard work and the pleasure of being in the woods. But when the camping season opened in late June of 1974, I was fortunate to transfer to Lincoln Pond State Campground, where I began a five-summer stint as a Lifeguard. Although I actually enjoyed the trail work and the mountaintop vistas, the view on the beach was much better for a teenager. In 1974, the department’s hiking literature indicated that there were a total of over 2000 miles of marked hiking trails within the Adirondack Park. In 1980, Essex County tourism brochures touted the same 2000-mile tally. In 1990, I Love New York tourism still maintained that there were

t appears the recent cold snap froze more than the water pipes in my home ... area lakes are buttoned up as well, like a fine Italian dress shirt. The lower end of Lake Champlain and nearly all its bays are now fishable, as is the majority of Lake George. The smaller lakes are well frozen, though some are difficult to navigate because of snow and slush. Popular fishing destinations like Lake Eaton, Long Lake, Raquette Lake, Indian Lake, Blue Mountain Lake, Eagle Lake, Paradox Lake, Brant Lake and Schroon Lake also hold fishable ice. As a result, a handful of ice fishing tournaments loom in the region, including those in Tupper Lake, Saranac Lake, Schroon Lake, Hague and Pilot Knob.

The Northern Challenge — Feb. 5 TUPPER LAKE — Hundreds of fisherman from throughout the Northeast are expected to converge on Lake Simond this weekend for the Northern Challenge Ice Fishing Derby sponsored by the Tupper Lake Rod and Gun Club and the Adirondack Regional Federal Credit Union. The only thing larger than the turnout for this great derby are the prizes, which range from two new four-wheelers to hourly cash awards of $800 for fish that are caught. Entrants are encouraged to pre-register on Friday, Feb. 4 from noon until 10 p.m. at the Tupper Lake Rod and Gun Club located on Lake Simond Road, or anglers can register the day of the derby starting at 3 a.m. through the end of the day. Fishing will take place during this catch-and-release tournament from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m. and prizes will be dolled out at 4 p.m. For more information, contact organizer Dave McMahon at 359-9715.

Organizers YMCA Camp Chingachgook and have this year partnered with the Northeast Ice Fishing Tour to add a competitive panfish derby to the event. As in the past, prizes will still be awarded to children and adults for heaviest fish in the categories of perch, pike, lake trout and salmon during the two-day tourney, but the event has been expanded to include the first annual panfish tournament. This is a total weight tournament open to those entering a total of 10 panfish, which can include any combination of perch, bluegill, sunfish or crappie. The contest is open from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and

2000 miles of maintained trails. Even though nearly forty years have passed since I first discovered the total trail mileage tally, (in which time NY state has since added an additional one million acres of land to the Forest Preserve), the same figure of 2000 miles of trails, is still accepted as fact today. In a publication published by the National Outdoor Leadership School, authors Bruce Hampton and David Cole explained that our nation’s trails are declining in total, “In the 1930s, our national forests had 132,000 miles of trails; today there are fewer than 100,000 miles…. Today, although our national forest backcountry has 25 percent fewer trails, the public's use of trails has grown steadily. For every person hiking a trail in 1960, more than three people now leave their bootprints .” I wondered if a similar situation was occurring in the Adirondacks, so I posed the question to Tony Goodwin, of Keene Valley. Goodwin is the Executive Director of both the Adirondack Trail Improvement Society (ATIS) and the Jackrabbit Ski Trail. A well known authority on Adirondack hiking trails, he is responsible for maintaining 115 miles of ATIS trails in and around Keene Valley, and for the 33 miles of the Jackrabbit Ski Trail. Goodwin explained, “It has not shrunk that significantly in the Adirondacks. I think you find out the total if you add up the mileage from the Adirondack Mountain Club Guidebooks. There may not be a lot of new trails, but there have not been many lost.” I wondered, how could it be? So, my first call went out to the Adirondack Mountain Club, (ADK) an organization that was formed in 1922 to promote hiking and outdoor travel. From the beginning, ADK has been responsible for the design and construction of the majority of trails in the

The entry fee is again just $15 for the two-day event with kids under 16 and seniors over 65 fishing for free. Cash and prizes will be awarded to the top six in the categories of lake trout, salmon, perch and northern pike. Organizer Steve Ramant said prizes include a Strikemaster gas auger, Perch a Clam Kenai ice-shelters, and Vexilar Cold-Snap parka and bib sets. New this year will be a clinic offered to area youth and novice anglers by Strikemaster pro angler Shawn Hayes.

A hiker enjoys the view from Ampersand Mountain, which overlooks the Saranac Lakes. The trail to the summit of Ampersand was established by Surveyor Verplank Colvin in the 1800's. Adirondacks. Today, ADK proudly continues this legacy. Currently, the organization has a professional trail crew to maintain state trails under a service contract with DEC. Additionally, various ADK Chapters provide numerous volunteer trail crews who are responsible for designing new trails and maintaining the older ones. And, ADK Guidebooks are considered the definitive source of information on hiking trails in the park. However, even they could not provide a current net total of the trail mileage in the park. Neil Woodworth, ADK’s Executive Director explained, “It is difficult to provide an accurate number, possibly the (DEC's) Unit Management Plans could shed some light on it. Rather than creating new trails, we are rerouting old trails or providing new connector trails for recently acquired lands.” Woodworth mentioned projects such as new trails to the summits of Lyon Mountain and Mt. Adams near Tahawus, as examples of ADK’s redesigned trails. These routes now incorporate a series of switchbacks to combat trail erosion, and lessen the pitch of the climb. These are new trails, but the cumulative affect has very little change in the overall total mileage. It seems that we are not loosing trails, however we aren’t gaining any either. Next week, I hope to have a more complete answer to the perplexing question of how the addition of over a million acres into the Adirondack Forest Preserve, has not changed the trail mileage in more than 40 years?
