NORTH CREEK — Opposition to Johnsburg Central School District's proposed 2012-13 budget became vocal this week, shortly after the school board approved the document. The board also rejected a proposal by community members that would force it to show and discuss all union contract agreements before they are ratified. A pair of community members, Tony Moro and David Braley, both of whom have run failed campaigns for board seats, cited studies that they say show the district is overpaying for underperforming education. Several more residents at the Monday, April 16 board meeting voiced support for the district, saying it is turning out strong students despite repeated layoffs and budget cuts, including those for the coming year. The 2012-13 budget, which calls for a 1.61 percent decrease in spending over the current year's plan, would total $9,697,932. The levy would rise 0.61 percent compared to the current year, the maximum allowed by the state-mandated property tax ceiling formula. A public hearing on the spending plan is scheduled for May 7, and voters have their final say on the budget May 15. The budget process had moved through weeks of

Resident urges J’burg Town Board to be more transparent By Mike Mender email@example.com JOHNSBURG — The Johnsburg Town Board meeting was only minutes old Tuesday when controversy erupted over the board’s decision to immediately go into executive session to interview a candidate for an open position on the planning board. Resident Bob Nessle told the board that according to Robert Freeman, executive director of the New York State Committee on Open Government, the board had the option of conducting the interview in executive session or in public.
Nessle urged the board, in the interest of transparency, to conduct the meeting in public, reasoning that decisions rendered by the planning board have an impact not just on the town board but on everyone who lives in the town. “The public has a right to hear this interview,” Nessle said. Town Supervisor Ron Vanselow told Nessle that the board had always conducted similar interviews in executive session, but that he would defer to the board as to whether that practice would continue. Councilman Arnold Stevens proceeded to make a motion to go into executive

session. A passionate discussion ensued with Nessle continuing to urge the board to interview the candidate in public. Vanselow countered that the board had always viewed these interviews as a form of personnel action and therefore, they should be kept confidential. Councilman Eugene Arsenault said that he had no problem with conducting future interviews for planning board candidates in public but that he’d feel more comfortable with an opinion from the town attorney before he’d agree to it. The town attorney wasn’t present at Tuesday’s meeting and Arsenault seconded Stevens’ motion that the meeting adjourn to executive session. Arsenault assured Nessle that if the town attorney didn’t object, he’d support public interviews in the future. Vanselow called the motion and the board voted unanimously to adjourn to executive session. Vanselow cleared the room and members of the public milled about outdoors as the board spent 20 minutes interviewing Curtis Richards for a vacant spot on the Johnsburg Planning Board. Later in the evening, after the board adjourned from executive session and resumed the regular meeting, members unanimously voted to appoint Richards to the planning board.

• Transfer station: In other news, after listening to Kathleen Suozzo of Cedarwood Engineering explain
the process for awarding a bid for the reconstruction of the town’s transfer station that was destroyed by fire last summer, the board awarded the project to AB Construction of Amsterdam, NY, at a low bid of $77,308. Suozzo said that once the bid was awarded, the company would need four to eight weeks lead time before construction would begin. Cherie Ferguson, Vanselow’s administrative assistant, explained that all but the engineering fees and project oversight costs would be covered by the town’s insurance policy. Councilman Arsenault wondered why all the costs wouldn’t be covered. Ferguson explained that she’d asked numerous times about the other costs and each time was told they wouldn’t be covered. “Ask again,” Arsenault said. • Wevertown fire district: Vanselow updated the board on other pending issues including the situation with the town’s volunteer fire coverage. Vanselow said he thought he had an agreement Saturday among chiefs from Johnsburg, North Creek and Riverside to redraw the fire district boundaries to absorb the area comprised by the former Wevertown fire district. Unfortunately, Vanselow said, he got a call Monday from the North Creek chief indicating that the North Creek fire commissioners would need to approve any changes to the North Creek Fire District boundaries, a development that post-
poned finalizing the realignment. “But we’re getting close,” he added. • Streetscape project: A bid for the North Creek streetscape project should be ready to be awarded soon, Vanselow said. Warren County Office of Planning and Community Development Deputy Director Wayne LaMothe is “crunching the numbers,” Vanselow said and should have a recommendation soon. • Ski Bowl Park: Kelly Nessle, the town’s point person on the Ski Bowl Park Grant Project, updated the board on the project status. The grant is in its fifth and final year. Nessle told the board that the town had six months to complete the project before the grant runs out. If the town doesn’t use the grant money and finish the project, Nessle told the board, it would severely hamper future efforts by the town to get grants, not only from the state but from the Federal government and other entities. Nessle asked the board to commit that funding for the remainder of the project would be available. Vanselow said the board likely wasn’t prepared to make a decision regarding funding on the spot and suggested that the board commit a substantial portion of its May 1 meeting to a discussion of the project. That would allow the public an opportunity to weigh in and give the board time to be better prepared to discuss the issue.

Information Bulletin #2 on the May 15th Board Election and Budget Vote Last week we looked at a few of the things the JCS Board failed to do that needed to be done. This week we list some things it permitted that it should have prevented. 1. The Board has PERMITTED staff numbers and compensation levels to grow over the years as student enrollment steadily declined. Since staffing accounts for 75-80% of school costs, JCS taxpayers have been unfairly burdened by this policy. 2. The Board has PERMITTED needless growth of physical plant by approving construction despite declining student numbers. Taxpayers had to pay for the capital costs and interest, plus increased operating expense to cover upkeep, fuel, power, cleaning, etc. required to maintain this space. 3. The Board has PERMITTED other schools to respond more decisively to recession challenges. For example, Post Star recently praised Ticonderoga School unions for agreeing to a 2012-13 salary freeze; and Hudson Falls, facing its first tax levy increase in 5 years, is considering spending cuts that would eliminate 11 positions. The JCS Board suffers from inertia. It thinks the same thoughts and does the same things it has done in the past, acting only when Albany pokes them. It has repeatedly approved annual budgets in which recurring (and growing) costs outpaced continuing revenues. This won’t do. Voters need to help the Board act more responsibly with our taxpayer money.

News Enterprise Editorial
Synthetic pot: The fight is not over
Defining our traditional core values
roubling news reports began late last year, describing the dangers linked with the use of synthetic marijuana or herbal incense products sold over-the-counter. Whether it was teens suffering severe health problems such as seizures, blackouts and kidney failure or exhibiting psychotic episodes or violent behavior, the use of the chemical-laced plant substances sold as “Posh,” “Wicked X” or “K2” prompted grave concerns among law enforcement officials, medical professionals and emergency responders. We applaud the administration of Gov. Andrew Cuomo for imposing a ban two weeks ago to halt the sale of synthetic marijuana products, which officials say are highly addictive and a pose a severe health hazard. The immediate ban was a measure enacted through the state Health Department, because Cuomo and other state officials sought to protect the state’s citizens as soon as possible — by bypassing the lengthy process of getting such laws approved in the state legislature. Cuomo and Health Commissioner Nirav Shah deserve credit for taking such fast action. We also support U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer ’s campaign to criminalize the substances nationally. We in the Adirondacks, however, can be particularly proud that our county leaders, law enforcement officials and community activists have been leading the way on banning these dangerous substances. In February, a group called Bringing Essex County Strengths Together — which included Elizabethtownarea students and youth advocates — met with area leaders, local politicians and law enforcement officials to warn them about the dangers associated with synthetic marijuana. The meeting resulted in a campaign to urge area stores to voluntarily stop selling the substances. Key adult leaders in this effort were Essex County Community Resources Director Michael Mascarenas, Elizabethtown Social Center Director Arin Burdo, and Mac MacDevitt, community prevention coordinator of the Substance Abuse Prevention Team of Essex County. In addition, credit goes to Essex County District Attorney Kristy
Sprague and county Sheriff Richard Cutting, who demonstrated leadership in calling for a ban. In Warren County, credit goes to Lake George citizen activist Joanne Gavin for urging the local town board to enact a ban, and not wait for federal and state authorities to take action. Within days of Gavin’s plea, Warren County District Attorney Kate Hogan and local state Trooper James West urged county supervisors to criminalize the sale, use or possession of the substances. These supervisors, serving on the county Criminal Justice committee, endorsed a law that had been drafted by county Attorney Martin Auffredou and county Administrator Paul Dusek. The law is to come before the full Board of Supervisors this next week, and it is expected to receive unanimous support. We applaud their swift response. Kudos also go to Hogan and county Sheriff Bud York and his staff. Drugs remain the No. 1 destructive force tearing apart families as well as prompting criminal behavior, including violent crimes. There’s not only a high cost to society in deaths, injuries, mental health costs and crime, but the taxpayers pay exorbitant amounts to incarcerate, prosecute and rehabilitate the offenders. It is vitally important to understand, however, that although we have apparently won an initial round in ridding our region of synthetic marijuana, the fight is far from over. Although selling the substances is now subject to a civil penalty, possessing it or using it isn’t yet illegal, law enforcement officials have warned. People can merely cross state lines to obtain it. More comprehensive legislation is needed to criminalize its distribution, sale, possession and use. We strongly urge our counties to adopt such legislation as soon as possible, and we implore our state and national politicians to follow suit and not waste time in ridding our society of such harmful and toxic substances. This editorial is the collaborative opinion of a board comprised of Thom Randall, Fred Herbst, Keith Lobdell, Stephen Bartlett, Andy Flynn and John Gereau.

Secrets from beyond the peephole
From the Archives
By Sharalee Falzerano
pstairs at the Johnsburg Historical Society in the Wevertown Community Center, formerly the Odd Fellows Hall, where I have volunteered since 2003, there is a door with an elaborate peephole. It guards the entrance to the grand meeting room of the Independent Order of the Odd Fellows. I have a particular history with this sort of opening to a protected space. As a child, I built a fort with the cover of a top-loading washing machine as a lookout hatch. I would pop my head out to ward off intruders before they could enter. This door and 2-inch peephole with an elaborate wood cover now swing open to reveal a treasure trove of artifacts that offers access to the world of oldfashioned Adirondack medicine. Beginning May 17, a selection of these fascinating objects will be part of the exhibition “The Country Doctor” at the Owens House Gallery of the Depot Museum. Recently I have spent hours going through the collection of doctors’ bags, instruments in fine leather cases, cases holding syringes and multi-colored bottles, an instrument sterilizer and a scary-looking Coolidge portable X-ray machine from the 1920s, that I’m sure I saw in an old Frankenstein movie. And all the time I have been breathing in
Odd Fellows Hall, now the Wevetown Community Center the aura that hangs thick in the Odd Fellows meeting room. The construction of the Odd Fellows Hall in 1913 came at a time when the organization was quite prominent in American small-town life. As I have come to understand, their membership grew to 3.4 million members by 1915, surpassing even that of the Masonic Order among benevolent fraternal organizations. The organization’s imperative to “visit the sick, relieve the distressed, bury the dead and educate the orphan" articulated ideals of cultivation of high moral standards and aiding humanity. The Odd Fellows extended fraternity — at least partway — to women through the auxiliary organization, the Daughters of Rebekah. Like Masons, Odd Fellows pursued selfimprovement and spiritual advancement through the achievement of higher levels of status or “Degrees,” conferred in elaborate rituals full of drama and replete with symbols and costumes. In Johnsburg, these rites were conducted in the meeting room. Members would enter not from the front of the building but from the rear, where they climbed the back stairs and waited to be viewed through the peephole before being admitted.
Part of my archival work at the Johnsburg Historical Society, beyond the pleasures of looking at old objects and documents, involves sorting them into boxes, and entering information about them into the computer. These mundane activities make the objects accessible, so they can tell the stories that they want to tell. Often working alone in the former meeting room, I have the option, when I need a break, of going back through the peephole. On the other side, I snoop around in the store room of objects waiting patiently. Despite the dust and flies, I love this room. Here I am a detective and a time traveler. I wedge myself into dusty corners so I can snoop. Mixed with all of the other fascinating artifacts, the medical artifacts are beautiful, intriguing and maybe a little creepy: shiny surgical instruments, bedpans, an examination table, and lots of machines with gauges. For years I have wanted to pull this stuff out and recreate a doctor ’s office and that’s just what I’m going to do. Through my research, I have learned so much about the good doctors who served the folks of Johnsburg over the last two centuries. For example, Dr. Godfrey
Martine, (1839-1906) born in Troy, was a surgeon during the Civil War, practiced in Johnsburg and Glens Falls and was elected to the state legislature in 1869. He wrote numerous medical papers published in the “Journal of the American Medical Association” and was a life member of the American Peace Society. Following the opening of the 30-mile Adirondack Railroad from Saratoga to North Creek in 1871, the boom in local tourism led Martine in 1874 to give financial backing to his brother-in-law John G. Holland of North Creek who opened the Blue Mountain Lake Hotel. The “Vermont Medical Monthly” reported on his death in August 1907: after making a professional call, he attempted to hail an electric trolley car and while standing too close was struck and killed. It was reported that 1,000 people attended his funeral in Glens Falls. You can see from these snippets the richness and color of our regional history. Please join the Johnsburg Historical Society and The Depot Museum for the opening of the exhibition “Country Doctors” on May 17th at 5 p.m. at the Owens House Gallery, 5 Railroad Place, North Creek. A group of contemporary photographs will be part of the exhibition, the work of our very own country doctor, Daniel Way, M.D. Landscape photographs taken along the routes followed to house calls are mixed with portraits of his patients. Their images and stories reveal the emotional spectrum: humor, sorrow, wonder, and stress.

Letters to the Editor Response to health care letter To the News Enterprise: I want to comment on Bob O'Brien's letter in the April 7 edition of the News Enterprise. In the present political climate, truth is often a casualty in discussions of political issues. For example, conservative commentators, news organizations, and political candidates have been very active in spreading misinformation about the Affordable Health Care Act. Here are some facts. First, the insurance is from private insurance companies, not the federal government. Second, if you currently have health insurance and are happy with it, there is no man-
date that you change. Third, employers are required to enroll all new full-time employees in the company's health care insurance, not some government plan. In Massachusetts, the health care law signed by Gov. George Romney has features similar to the federal law. During the period the law has been in effect, the percentage of businesses providing insurance has increased. The Affordable Health Care Act has already had positive effects, including the addition of 2.5 million adult children to their parents' insurance (up to age 26), and elimination of prior conditions as a reason for denial of coverage. It may come as a surprise, but this coun-
try has a single-payer government health care system run by the Veterans' Administration. It has all the characteristics of the often vilified "socialized medicine." The hospitals are owned by the government, the staff is hired by and paid by the government, and there is no choice of doctor. And the whole enterprise is funded by our taxes. I have not heard any outcry from conservatives to do away with this system. Accurate information on the Affordable Health Care Act, including the complete text, is available on the Internet. I encourage all citizens to become better informed on health care, as well as other current political issues. David Carson Long Lake

Hester's History (cont.) As Hazel Hitchcock became old enough, she used to come to my mother and father's home very much. She loved to be with my twin sister and I. We loved to have her. We used to take her to school with us and place a board from one seat to the other so she could sit with us both. and a board or something from one desk to the other so Hazel could put her book on the (if I remember right). Hazel and Merton (Hitchcock) were at our home for a long time as much as in their own home (I think). Merton later as a young man married a school teacher; Queena Cooper, who used to teach at Dist. No. 7, after I had left school. He is at present, Feb. 6, 1981, living at North Creek, I believe. I see him once in awhile. His wife is still alive. One child died young. One or two are yet living, I believe. Hazel married Burlin Bowman. She died quite young, leaving one daughter, Hilda. At this writing there are only a few still living that were children when I was a child. I can think of only a few who were alive when I was a child. I believe Charles Reese is yet alive, and Kate Harrington and Billy Lackey. Helene Shaw Newton who was very long at the time her mother lived in our home with her mother, brother and baby sister, Mary. Helene could d, "Two Little Hands," when she was 5 or 6 years old; the first time I ever heard it. Enjoy each and every day.

Celebrate Local Talent to benefit scholarship fund April 28 Concert to feature local musicians
By Andy Flynn
firstname.lastname@example.org NORTH CREEK — When Heather Osowiecki graduated from the Johnsburg Central School in 2007, she was glad to have a scholarship to study at the Crane School of Music in Potsdam. “That really meant a lot to be recognized in that way,” Osowiecki said. “It means the world to someone and encourages students to know there’s support out there.” Now it’s her time to help. Osowiecki, who lives in North Creek, will use her mezzosoprano voice to perform during the Celebrate Local Talent Concert starting at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 28 at the Tannery Pond Community Center in North Creek. The event will benefit the new Upper Hudson Musical Arts scholarship, offered annually to a high school senior in the region who will be studying music, either as a performer or an educator. Osowiecki did both at Crane. Actually, she studied vocal performance, music education and music business. “Having three majors put me a little behind schedule, but it was definitely worth it,” Osowiecki said. She spent an extra semester at the Crane School of Music, graduating in December 2011. Now she is the marketing manager at Opera Saratoga, commuting more than a hour to get to work each day in Saratoga Springs. She uses the music business and music education training during her day job, and on the side she is singing with Albany Pro Musica, a choral group based at the state capital. Osowiecki won’t reveal her song choices for April 28, deciding instead to surprise her audience. But she does love to sing French and German art songs. “That will definitely be reflected in my performance,” Osowiecki said. Living in North Creek, Osowiecki finds it beneficial to have Upper Hudson Musical Arts sponsor world-class mu-
sical performances at the Tannery Pond Community Center. “It’s so important to have a variety of musical exposure in the Adirondacks,” said Osowiecki, who took advantage of every musical opportunity Johnsburg Central had to offer, including band, chorus and the school musical, which she was the student director of during her junior year. This will be the first Celebrate Local Talent Concert for Upper Hudson Musical Arts. All six acts are volunteering their time and will perform for about 20 minutes each. A reception will be held after the concert. The five other acts will be: classical guitarist Sten Isachsen; the violin duo of Devin Camp and Ryan McDonnell; singer/songwriter Katy Cole; classical pianist Don Preuninger; and the Tony Jenkins Jazz Trip, featuring Frank Conti on sax, Tony Jenkins on guitar, Greg Brown on string bass and Eric Hamell on drums. Having local talent was important to organizers because they wanted to inspire school children to go into a musical profession, according to concert co-organizer and former Johnsburg Central music teacher Denise Conti. “We felt we’d like them to see local students who are successful,” Conti said. Conti was the vocal teacher for two of the concert’s artists — Heather Osowiecki and Katy Cole — and remembers seeing Brant Lake native Sten Isachsen perform at the Wevertown Community Center when he was a student. Conti’s husband, Frank, is the former Johnsburg Central band teacher and will be performing during the Celebrate Local Talent Concert. “We’re hoping we’ll be able to fund a scholarship for the next three years with this concert,” Denise Conti said. Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for students. For advance tickets, contact Denise Conti at 251-3911 or Alan Chandler at 623-9843. Forms for the Upper Hudson Musical Arts scholarship have been sent to guidance counselors at seven schools in the region: Johnsburg, Minerva, Newcomb, Long Lake, Indian Lake, Warrensburg and North Warren.
Indian Lake Chamber to host adventure sports tour INDIAN LAKE — The Indian Lake Chamber is taking Adventure to a new level with the Adventure Sports Tour (AST) on May 3, beginning at 5:09 p.m. The AST is the first minitour of Indian Lake Businesses with many more to come.

While it might be too cool to enjoy the built in swimming pool, this rest stop for the weary is a photo opportunity extraordinaire. After visiting with the Eichler family it will be on to The Lake Store. The Lake Store is an oasis in the center of the Adirondacks with all your grocery shopping needs and tourist items, along with all of your taste delights requirements - i.e. ice cream.

On both days, Saturday and Sunday, there will be a spinning wheel exhibit and demonstration, fly-fishing demonstrations, games for children under 13 years old, and the North Creek Depot Museum will be open.

Newcomb teen arrested for taking lewd photos of woman
JCS meeting from page 1
By Katherine Clark
out notice. The loudest response to Moro and Braley came from others in the audience who cited contradicting school-performance studies and the experience of their own children in the district. Jeremy Williams said, "My two girls come home with math homework that just blows my wife and me away. My kindergarten daughter is learning 'capacities,'" the math concept of how much something can hold. Other audience members said
Moro and Braley were insulting teachers, most of whom are neighbors. Some asked if the pair believed that faculty and staff were working to hurt students, but neither replied. After the meeting, Moro said that drastic funding cuts to businesses results in stronger, more innovative companies, and that the same will be true for Johnsburg. "This isn't a lousy school," Moro said. It just needs to stop spending so much money.

NEWCOMB — New York State Police arrested a Newcomb teenager at 2:45 p.m. Thursday, April 12 for allegedly taking nude photos of girl without her permission and sending them to others online. Bryce Brown, 17, was charged with second-degree unlawful surveillance, a Class E felony. The arrest stems from an incident on Sept. 8, 2011. Brown had allegedly been taking photos of a 20-year-old girl without her knowledge in a bathroom with his iPod and sent them by email to classmates, according to State Police investigator Steve Ansari. Shortly after the incident, the woman heard rumors that there
were nude pictures of her on the Internet and reported it to the police. The woman said she did not consent to having the photos taken or uploaded online. After the incident was reported, Ansari said Brown had left the area and went to Salt Lake City, Utah. On April 12, the police department received a tip Brown had returned to the area and picked him up. Brown was arraigned in Newcomb Town Court and remanded to the Essex County Jail in Lewis in lieu of $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 bond. A Class E Felony could carry a penalty of probation or up to 16 months to four years in prison, according to Essex County Assistant District Attorney Michael T. Langey.

public meetings smoothly, with few critical comments from audience members. That quiet was broken April 14, with a political ad in the News Enterprise announcing Moro's latest bid for a board seat. In the ad, he accuses the board and administration of hiding financial information, including where union dues go, and analysis of poor student performance. It also alleges faculty members inflate their pensions inappropriately by taking on extra duties in the years just prior to retirement. Moro and Braley picked up these themes at the board meeting. District Superintendent Mike Markwica and board President Bill Conner refuted the allegations and discussed how student test scores have been hurt by state mandates that have changed repeatedly with-
