SPRING CLEANING

Adk. Express getting a facelift

This Week JOHNSBURG

By Keith Lobdell keith@denpubs.com CHESTERTOWN Ñ The Adirondack Express will look very different when skiers return to Gore Mountain. New York State Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced state funding for a project to replace the current Adirondack Express, the oldest high-speed lift in North America, with a new Adirondack Express II, which will be a high-speed detachable quad. Ò This is a landmark improvement for Gore that will give customers a very comfortable ride out of our primary base area,Ó Emily Stanton of Gore said. Ò It will be similar to our Burnt Ridge High Speed Quad to give people a reference.Ó The Adirondack Express II project is enabled in part by increased investments in New York State Olympic Regional Development Authority (ORDA) facilities that were included as part of CuomoÕ s 2014-15 budget. The new unloading zone near the mid-mountain Saddle Lodge will be lowered and restructured to provide an easier egress to the slopes. Ò The lifts have been ordered and the work is starting now,Ó Stanton said. Ò From this lift you will be able to access the rest of the mountain. This is a massive place to move people around and this new lift will help us do that more effectively.Ó The Adirondack Express II will have a capacity of 2,400 people per hour, 300 more than the previous lift. Padded chairs and eight fewer towers will make for a comfortable ride and the lift can operate 38 percent faster than its predecessor.

Minerva takes out the trash on clean up day By Mike Corey denpubs@denpubs.com MINERVA Ñ Sure, the weather was a bit chilly and dampish, but that did not stop a crowd of close to 50 citizens from Minerva and nearby towns who were bent on picking up roadside trash in an effort to make the Town look neater. Seeing assorted roadside trash items as one travels the highways and byways of any town detracts from the scenery, no question. The Minerva-sponsored Clean Up Day,

April 26, was a great way to get folks up and out to make the community a nicer place to be. Beginning around 9 a.m., participants stopped by the Minerva Town Hall to pick up their plastic bags and sign up for their stretch of roadway. Betty LeMay, who has been an important part of the clean-up day festivities for many years, thoughtfully kept track of these stretches and the groups or individuals who walked them. This reporter was assigned a section of

Chestertown sisters to raise funds with ‘no tags’ By Keith Lobdell keith@denpubs.com

JOHNSBURG

State Route 28N, running from Ridge Road to the Northwoods Club Road. For close to three hours our team of pickers (including MCS student/Taiwanese son Kevin Hsiao) walked along the ditches and shoulders of 28N, picking up bottles, cans, assorted plastic things, paper products and lots of packaging trash. Also found was a beat-up 16-pound bowling ball. They bagged up trash and left the bags on the roadside to be picked up later by Town of Minerva employees.

ously and helping us out with donations,Ó Hannah said. Ò I have never done something like this before.Ó Ò Hannah has been asking to do something like this for a while, and Natalie has been helping her out the whole time,Ó said Danielle Armstrong, the girlsÕ mother.

Local DEC and conservation districts collaborate with high schools Warren County Soil And Water Hosts 21st annual Envirothon By Mauranda Stahl-Sorensen mauranda@denpubs.com

WARRENSBURG Ñ The 21st annual Warren County Enviorthon took place April 23 at the Warren County Fish Hatchery. High school students from Johnsburg, North Warren, Warrensburg, Glens Falls, Lake George and Hadley-Lake Luzerene participated in five environmental science-based stations. They included aquatics, soil classification, forestry, local agriculture and wildlife. Representing each school were three teams composing of five members each. Teams spent a designated amount of time at each activity with environmental and conservation experts from the Department of Environmental Conservation, Lake George Association, Cornell Cooperative Extension and Warresburg Fish Hatchery. Ò ItÕ s a great opportunity for these kids to network with these professionals,Ó said Dean Moore, event coordinator. Ò They can ask questions and get contacts to help out in the future.Ó Ethan Frasier, a senior from North Warren,

cited the Envirothon as a contributor to his love for science. Ò I was accepted to Paul SmithsÕ and I want to be a DEC officer locally or travel, I haven’t decided yet,Ó Frasier said. Senior Whitney Markwica attended the Envirothon all four years of her high school experience. In 2013, Markwica went on with her team to the New York State Envirothon headed by teacher John Burns. Ò Our presentation was on rotational grazing,Ó said Markwica. Ò The EnvirothonÕ s bring science to real life for students.Ó At the events denouement, students took a short test to check their knowledge on the information of the daysÕ activities. The top three teams were Lake George Team I with a total of 356 points, North Warren Team I with a total of 370 points and Glens Falls team I with a total of 391 points. Taking home the 2014 title for Lake George were seniors Noah Duell, Drew Cuprood and Nate Plocharczyz along with juniors Mayr Sawyer and Jackie Hogan. Pattye Nicolls, Glens Falls earth science and astronomy teacher will be their coach as the team moves on to represent Warren County at the New York State Envirothon slated for May 21 and 22 at SUNY Morrisonville.

NORTH CREEK Ñ The Adirondack TriCounty Nursing Home will again host the local farmer Õ s market. During the North Creek Business Alliance Meeting April 24, market secretary Emily Stanton said she would, Ò anticipate,Ó the market returning to the nursing home in 2014, where it was held last summer. Ò The board voted to move to the nursing home and it seemed to be good for the

market and it was something positive for the residents at the home,Ó Stanton said. The market had previously been stationed at Railroad Place. Stanton said visibility was a key to the move. Ò At the nursing home we get people who are coming through on Route 28 and we have more exposure,Ó Stanton said. Ò It was certainly a nice environment by the river, but it was felt the market needed to grow in both customers and vendors.Ó Stanton said once the Main Street project is completed, the group would look to return to a location near the river. The farmer Õ s market will be held on Thursdays from 3 to 6 p.m. starting in June and running through October.

NORTH CREEK Ñ The Warren County SheriffÕ s Office is investigating a fatal logging accident that occurred at a private residence located on North Church Lane in the Town of Queensbury. The incident was reported to the SheriffÕ s Office, on Wednesday, April 23, at 1:09 p.m. Keven C. Bullard, 41, owner of Bullard Contracting, and a co-worker were cutting down a Birch tree located in the front yard of the residence on North Church Lane. Bullard ascended the tree that was approximately 50 feet in height before cutting a six foot section of the tree. As that section of tree was being lowered, the entire tree fell to the ground in a northwest direction. Bullard clung to the tree as it fell, and landed on a blacktop area of a driveway. Bullard was transported to Glens Falls Hospital by West Glens Falls Emergency Squad for treatment, and later transferred to Albany Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 3:48 p.m. An autopsy conducted on April 24, at the Albany Medical Center revealed the cause of death to be massive internal injuries due to blunt force trauma. The preliminary investigation by the SheriffÕ s Office and a representative of Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) revealed that the tree had insufficient root structure to support the added/redistributed weight at the top of the tree. QUEENSBURY Ñ On April 14, at approximately 4 p.m., the Warren County Sheriffs Office stopped a 2004 Kia operating southbound on SR 9 near the Municipal Center because the vehicleÕ s brake lights were not functioning. The operator, 37 year old Jennifer A. Chandler of Schenectady, was subsequently ticketed for Inadequate/Insufficient Brake Lamps, Operating with a Suspended Registration, Unlicensed Operator (she had a permit only), Operating without Insurance and having a Backseat Passenger age 4-7 with No/ Improper Restraint. Chandler Õ s five-year old daughter was lying down, napping across the back seat and there was no child restraint seat in the vehicle. The plates were removed and the vehicle towed.

The Chandler Õ s were also found to be the protected parties in an active Stay Away Order of Protection, protecting them from the male passenger, 44 year old Joseph L. Powell of Jamaica. Powell was arrested and charged with Criminal Contempt for violating the OOP. The Criminal Contempt charge was upgraded to a felony due to Powell having a prior Criminal Contempt charge within the preceding five years. Both Chandler and Powell were arraigned in Queensbury Town Court. Chandler was released to reappear on the traffic tickets at a later date. Powell was remanded without bail due to him having two prior felony convictions. The case was handled by Patrol Officers Greg Dunn and Josh Lopez. LAKE GEORGE Ñ The Warren County SheriffÕ s Office received a report of a motor vehicle accident on Goggins Road in the Town of Lake George. The vehicle a 2005 Saab four door sedan failed to negotiate a curve, exited the roadway, and overturned. The driver, Thomas J. Quaresima, 30, of Queensbury was taken to Glens Falls Hospital by Lake George Emergency Sqaud to be treated. It was determined that Quaresima was intoxicated and a blood sample was taken to determine his blood alcohol content. He was charged with Felony driving while intoxicated because of a previous DWI conviction in November of 2005. He was also charged with the traffic violation of failure to keep right. He was released pending prosecution in Lake George Town Court. The SheriffÕ s Office was assisted at the scene by Lake George Fire Department. QUEENSBURY Ñ On April 11, at approximately 11:55 p.m., the Warren County SheriffÕ s Office received a complaint of an erratic operator in the Town of Queensbury.

For Sale: Act III

ou may have seen yellow signs dotting the landscape. Those are auction notices for the abandoned houses and empty lots seized by Essex County for failure to pay taxes. By the time you read this, the county will have had a tax auction on April 30, the first since 2008, in an attempt to put these properties back into private hands. Officials are optimistic that the 130-some-odd properties and parcels will be placed back on the tax rolls, thus generating much-needed income for cash-strapped municipalities and relieving towns of the liabilities and stigmas that are associated with these painful reminders of rural blight. We hope the properties sell, preferably to young people, business owners and other forward-looking folks who will be net assets to these communities, from Moriah to Wilmington. The county is ailing on just about every metric Ñ its problems are well-documented and we neednÕ t revisit them here Ñ and most of these towns desperately need the income to sustain even the most basic services. But while weÕ d love to join in on the optimism, weÕ re alarmed at what we perceive to be a lack of contingency planning for what happens if these parcels, which range from the downright dreadful to the merely rustic on the march towards rehabilitation, fail to find buyers. Local officials just don’t have a Plan B. Moreover, they assume that in the event these properties are sold and placed back on the tax rolls, which are already stagnant as a result of the state-mandated cap, then weÕ ll all live happily ever after and we can turn our attention to other things. We donÕ t feel that way. In the event that the bottom drops out of this auction, and we have good reason to be feeling pessimistic after the steady drumbeat of rotten news all winter, itÕ s worth exploring additional options to ensure public discussion continues after the auctioneerÕ s gavel rises and falls. Look outward. Know what an EB-5 is? We do. ItÕ s a federal immigration program that fast tracks the visa process for foreign investors in regional centers that are designated by the feds as areas to promote rural economic growth. Among other criteria, applicants must pledge to invest at least $1 million in something called Òt argeted employment areas.” Those are defined as rural areas experiencing unemployment of at least 150 percent of the national average rate, among other factors. Guess what the North Country has?

May 3, 2014

Clean air, open land and a targeted employment area. Guess what Mainland China doesnÕ t have? None of the above. Eighty percent of these EB-5 visas are awarded to Chinese nationals seeking investment opportunities in more favorable climes. This might be worth exploring for something as large as, say, the former Frontier Town lot in North Hudson thatÕ s been moldering into the ground for the better part of two decades, the neglect of which is a slap in the face to American ingenuity. Build on trends. The farm-to-fork movement that emphasizes regionally-grown products to promote health and sustainability is a growing trend that reflects America’s desire for food products that arenÕ t manufactured in industrial complexes off the New Jersey Turnpike. Essex County is in a prime position to take advantage of this new phase in public consciousness with pockets of rich farmland and access to shipping routes that can zip fresh products, from veggies to syrup to microbrews, to eager regional buyers. A dependence on tourism shouldnÕ t be the regionÕ s permanent Hail Mary pass when it comes to economic development and it might not be a bad idea to look past the short term gain of putting some of these mid-sized houses back on the tax rolls Ñ or selling off empty parcels for residential development Ñ in favor of a longer agricultural game with these trends in mind. Repurpose. We havenÕ t studied the dynamics of each structure in the auction and are unfamiliar with the status of each building. For those that are sturdy and sound and not teeming with nefarious Mad Max-type characters that would necessitate hitting the auto-destruct button, the county would do well to immediately put some of them to use, if not only temporarily and in trial programs. Zoning is a crapshoot in the North Country and it doesnÕ t seem entirely unfeasible that with the right amount of tax breaks, grant searching and community incentives, some of these properties Ñ or even empty parcels Ñ can be repurposed for short-term uses that can benefit the community, from teen recreational centers to wi-fi hotspots for seasonal residents, as officials map out a long-term roadmap for the future. If Act I for these structures was their birth, and Act II was their prolonged period of decline and neglect, we hope that Act III will be by characterized by lawmakers working together, political differences aside, to ensure each vacant lot and empty structure wonÕ t equate to missed possibilities, but rather untapped opportunities.

Letters to the Editor

Make a stance

To the News Enterprise: I read with interest your editorial on fracking in New York. The state has taken a cautious approach to this form of energy extraction, unlike other states which are now having to put in place laws and regulations to protect the water table and affected communities. You are correct that the identity of toxic fracking fluids is not subject to disclosure under The Safe Water Drinking Act. This secrecy was put in place largely at the behest of former Vice President Dick Cheney. You encourage the development of wind power as a clean alternative to carbon and toxin-based forms of energy. Please remember roof top and community solar, completely clean and decentralized energy infrastructures. There are state and federal incentives in place for these, but more could be done to speed their development. Current incentives in New York cut the upfront investment by about two-thirds. The remaining costs are generally recouped in 8-10 years through savings. You misuse the word Ò antidoteÓ in the editorial; I believe that you meant to use Ò anecdoteÓ instead. Also, Ò Anwar, Alaska,Ó should read Ò ANWAR or The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.Ó You end the editorial, with a tone of essentially wondering what Governor Cuomo will decide regarding fracking in New York. Given the strong content of your overall message, a forceful recommendation to limit or ban fracking in New York, would be more effective. David Thomas-Train Keene Valley

Fracking ‘anitdotes’

To the News Enterprise: Two things - first, please look up the two similar-sounding words Ò antidoteÓ and Ò anecdoteÓ and then check to see which one was employed in at least four places in this editorial. I found the article otherwise well-thought-out and well-written, but this jarring clinker sharply disappointed. Second, is it possible that fracking could be made safer to the point of acceptability by imposing rules on the industry? Just to start with, as you noted they were exempted from the Clean Water rules with which every other entity must comply. This has helped make their product appear less expensive than it really is, and confuses us when we try to value it. The destructive results of rule removal also must whip up opposition to the industry. Could frackers become decent trusted fellow citizens with proper oversight? Could they be made to produce a truly valuable product, and not a morass of enviro horror? Anecdotally, it would seem that even greatly expanded alternative energy sources cannot bear the burden of our energy demands. I just donÕ t hear a lot about any possibility of reforming the fracking industry (though granted that would almost certainly raise their costs, perhaps astronomically) and I donÕ t know enough about the science. I wonder if it would make an interesting further article, or if itÕ s a dead end. Thanks for keeping attention trained on the subject. Marianne Hines Hague

Fracking can help

To the News Enterprise: The paperÕ s opposition to fracking, like its support of Greenism generally, is ignorant and destructive of the wellbeing of citizens of the North Country. Fracking, like every other form of resource development today, is managed in such a way as to minimize environmental damage and maximize benefits. Greens, overwhelmingly upper middle class, are opposed to development, but most of the North CountryÕ s residents want to see prosperity return to the area, and fracking is a great way to do it, as Texas and North Dakota show. Remember climate scientist Richard LindzenÕ s declaration: It would appear that the privileged members of the global society regard as dogma that the rest of humanity is a blight on the planet, and all efforts should be devoted to preventing their economic improvement and development. Jigs (John) Gardner, Westport

Bad anecdote

To News Enterprise: IÕ m not sure there are any antidotes for the dangerous practice of injecting a mix of toxic chemicals in shale strata as part of the hydraulic fracturing process in deep oil and gas well production. However your editorial (4/26/14) is an anecdote I will take to my grave. Robert Nessle Johnsburg

Ramblings By Evelyn Greene

W

hat a great day in the woods Ñ after ice and snow and before bugs! IÕ ve been following newly flagged DEC trails, though brand new to me and just about everyone else, wild forest preserve. What a rare treat Ñ to not be afraid of getting lost, yet not have worn out trails and trash along the way Ñ except for the awful pink ribbons, half of which have broken off in the winter winds. Today were the first blooming native flowers I’ve seen — leatherwood with its drooping yellow flowers signaling where there is marble underfoot; tiny bright yellow violets with shiny scalloped leaves that will explode in size when the tree leaves start shading them; and spring beauty Ñ delicate pink-striped delicate wonders. How can they poke their heads up so quickly after the nasty winter we had? A few other flower leaves are showing but that was all. But what a delight to see them, up high on the slope where the sun gets in through the leafless trees. Ruby-crowned kinglets I think are singing, though it seems early. I saw two gorgeous pileated woodpeckers, one of which made the biggest pile of woodchips I have ever seen. I watched a woodpecker drumming very fast, a hairy though I thought downies were the fast drummers. Two brown creepers were chasing each other but still starting at the bottom of the trees and climbing up before heading to the bottom again. The big trees stand out this time of year in all their elegance and I went through lots of old forest preserve where they have been able to grow in peace for at least 100 years. Big bigtooth poplar, white ash, white birch, red and sugar maple, hemlock in a swamp. And one magnificent white pine with its feet in the swamp, four feet in diameter. The top had the scraggly look of a really old pine. This was the only white pine on the whole trip today, which seemed odd. Though this was essentially bushwhacking, the 800 foot climb was easy walking with few windfalls, no mud but some wet areas easy to avoid, the hobblebush with no leaves so not a tripping problem, and because I took lots of notes and had to listen to birds sometimes, I had plenty of excuses to catch my breath. Good boots, two perfect walking sticks, layered clothes to remove as I got warmÑw hat fun! A couple days ago for the first time ever I watched a male ruffed grouse displaying his finery. His tail was spread like a turkeyÕ s, wings hanging and spread, and his huge black Òr uffÓ around his neck was standing up. He strutted very slowly and pompously, shaking his head every few seconds to set the ruff ruffling! He climbed the bank in the same dignified fashion, turned and walked parallel to the road for a bit before turning abruptly and running away but with his feathers still spread. No other birds were in sight, so who was he displaying for? My car? You can google Òd isplaying ruffed grouseÓ f or a video of this ridiculous showing off. A week ago a lone hooded merganser was in ColeÕ s Pond on River Rd., snapping his incredibly white crest up and down and making short dives, seemingly for the benefit of a pair of mallards. This did not make sense either. You can often see the red crested hen merganser with a flock of ducklings trailing behind for a few seconds on backwoods beaver ponds, before she hides then in the marsh or snags. The male would be a handicap so he gets to hang out with the guys the rest of the summer. The wood frogs are about finished croaking, now that their vernal pools are not being cooled by melting ice. How can cold-blooded creatures operate at that temperature? The invisible peepers are starting their incredible screeching. If you sneak up on them and wait until they start again, your head will feel as if it is exploding. I have not seen the big, shiny, yellow and black spotted salamanders since years ago when a few were killed in the road, but they are probably out there under the leaf litter waiting for a warm rain at night to tell them to go to the vernal pools. Hurrah for spring!

Minerva town board meets, talks about vandalism issues By Mike Corey

denpubs@denpubs.com MINERVA Ñ The April 24 meeting of the Minerva Town Board had a full agenda, including two presentations to start the meeting, which was attended by 16 audience members. The first guest, Elizabethtown Community Hospital (ECH) representative Rod Boula, gave to the Board an update of the hospitalÕ s new activities. He stated that ECH had recently opened up its 5th health center, located in Au sable Forks. He also mentioned that ECH has hired on a new nurse practitioner and added a new physician; the hospital now has five fulltime physicians on staff. In addition, ECH has expanded its pulmonary treatment program, which now has eight patients utilizing this service. Andrew Lewis of Aquatic Invasive Manage-

ment (based in Au Sable Forks) spoke to the Board about its ongoing efforts to control Eurasian water milfoil in Minerva Lake. Aquatic Invasive Management (AIM) has been working with the Town of Minerva since 2007 to control the spread of this invasive species of aquatic plant in the lake, a tough assignment given the aggressive nature of this plant. AIM utilizes a very basic but effective handpulling method using divers to remove these plants, which can quickly spread throughout a shallow lake where waters are clear and sunlight reaches the bottom. Lewis handed out a chart which showed how the quantity of milfoil plants pulled from the lake reached a high in 2008, dropped to a minimum in 2011, and rose again in 2013. This invasive species, once it is established in a water body, is extremely difficult to eliminate completely. The best that can happen is a controlling effort whereby the

plant is maintained at a low level where it is less likely to cause problems. Lewis proposed that AIM spend three weeks of intensive work in Minerva Lake this coming summer spread out over three different periods of plant growth: June, July, and August or early September. The Board indicated that it would consider this plan, which would cost the Town $22,227. Supervisor Steve McNally introduced a resolution that recommended the hiring of staff for the Minerva Summer Youth Program, which will run from July 7 to Aug. 15 this year. The youth program has been in place since 1950 Ð itÕ s a day camp program based at Minerva Lake that is available to kids both within the Town and out of town. McNally announced that there would be a small increase in tuition for kids who are not residents of the Minerva School District. The public comment portion of the agenda

A bowling ball was a winner in a tough contest for weirdest trash item, a competition that included a very useable football, tennis balls and various deer carcasses. A very enthusiastic but chilly crowd of folks enjoyed their time under the pavilion as well as out on the roadways. A group of Cub Scouts from North Creek also helped out; and a number of students from Minerva Central School also participated.

was dominated by discussion of the vandalism that has recently been plaguing the Town. Acts of arson, theft and vandalism involving townowned properties have been an issue, and citizens present at the meeting made sure that the board was aware of it. McNally acknowledged that the problems have had a negative effect on businesses in town and stated that he had spoken with some of the people that he thought might be involved concerning the negative impacts their actions are having. Councilman LaBar said that folks in the community need to keep their, Ò eyes and ears open,Ó and that the community needs to watch out for and report problems. Highway Superintendent McGinn stated that he thought the damage that has been done has gone past the point of being fun, that the vandalism has gone overboard, and that, Ò when you scare people, itÕ s almost like terrorism.Ó

He was burned on over 60 percent of his body and he was given less than a 10 percent chance of survival. He was awarded the Purple Heart for wounds received on that day. Since his retirement, Lt. Col. Birdwell founded Face The Fire Ministries, Inc. The organization was established to assist burn survivors and wounded servicemen and women and their families.

Essex Co. votes for wine, beer tent for August fair By Pete DeMola pete@denpubs.com ELIZABETHTOWN Ñ Cheers! Ganbei! Na Zdorovie! SantŽ ! No matter how you say it, the language of booze is universal and Essex County lawmakers hope that doing away with the longstanding ban on alcohol at the Essex County Fairgrounds in Westport will translate into one absolute truth: cold hard cash. On Monday, April 21, a majority of the board of supervisors voted to kick a resolution by Westport Supervisor Dan Connell up the legislative food chain. Connell said he envisions the fairgrounds as a place where microbreweries and vineyards can display their wares to a public eager to partake in a rapidly-growing industry. Ò WeÕ ve already got a commitment from the High Peaks Distillery,Ó said Connell. Ò This could be a huge income generator.Ó Lawmakers welcomed the proposal but urged caution: Ò This is great and good for business,Ó said Mike Marnell, the Schroon Lake supervisor who opposed past efforts at allowing alcohol at the venue. Ò IÕ ve changed my mind,

but letÕ s keep up support of programs to curb alcoholism.Ó Ò It has to be a controlled environment,Ó said Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafava. Ò We donÕ t want a bunch of drunks, people coming to get hammered, but rather to taste the spirits.Ó North Elba Supervisor Roby Politi said he always saw past efforts by the board to deny the county-owned fairgrounds the right to serve libations as a mistake and cited a clean track record in Lake Placid as proof that alcohol can be served with responsibility. Ò There are so many microbreweries and this is a great way to show their product in a controlled environment Ñ itÕ s business and I donÕ t know why anyone would say no to that,Ó he said. Ò TheyÕ re still going to drink in the parking lot,Ó added Essex Supervisor Ed Gardner. Ò Better to do it in a controlled environment.Ó A final decision will be handed down at the full board meeting next month. For more on this story, visit us online at denpubs. com.

Growing young again

I

nstead of wasting time waiting for the ponds to open up; I decided to travel home to Elizabethtown for the weekend to visit a few of the old fishing holes from my younger

days. Although I tend to spend a majority of my time fishing the ponds; I’ve always been a river walker. I enjoy the flows more than flat waters, as the scent of a stream is ever changing and it is addictive. On the ponds, you can pretty much see it all from one location. The waters are flat or choppy, or somewhere in between; but there is not much variation. Sure, there are fluctuations in foliage, down trees, steep banks and other natural factors that give different ponds their character; but for the most part, a pond is a pond, what you see is what you get. But on the river, and especially on the small streams, the scene is always in motion, ever flowing, and wandering along. There is life everywhere, in the trees on the riverbanks, in the air, and under the river rocks where the crayfish hide. And it seems you

can never capture it all, just a glimpse and itÕ s gone. In the dark, hemlock forested reaches of the rivers, the waters take on an ominous odor that scents the air, and the land. It is a primordial scent that always transports me back to my younger days. The waters, darkened by the shade, provide safe safe sanctuary for the trout, even in mid stream. Their quick darting movements are difficult to decipher, unless a shaft of sun captures their shadow. Often they would hide, invisible among the long logs, the tangled roots and the rubble of the riverbank. I tried to entice them to venture forth and sip a dry fly from the surface, but the brookies were skittish, and the waters were cold. These waters were the playgrounds of my youth, they were the only waters within walking or biking distance of town. So too, were the surrounding hills, Little Buck, Wood Hill, Raven, and Cobble Hill. IÕ ve climbed them all numerous times, and I still canÕ t get enough. And as I stared at them from the valley floor, I couldn’t resist the urge to visit them again. Since the trout werenÕ t cooperating; I decided to take some time away from the grind in order to tackle a few of the smaller hills, and to let the trout settle a bit. I had come home to chase some trout, and in the process, to recover some of the excitement of of my youth. I climbed the

hills again, and I looked down on my old small town. I hiked the ridges, and visited our old campsites. I climbed the cliffs and discovered a few more mountaintop antennas. (ItÕ s always surprising to see just how far some folks will go to get television reception, not to mention the cost of stringing half a mile of antenna wire up the side of a cliff.) Elizabethtown has remained pretty much the same as it was in my youth, just like many of the small, non-touristy Adirondack towns. It really hasnÕ t changed much over the years. There are a few more buildings, fewer families, and a surprising number of new homes situated on the hillsides surrounding the Pleasant Valley. The mountains havenÕ t moved much. Giant of the Valley still looms to the south west, and Hurricane still sports itÕ s Fire tower, as proud as ever. I walk the sidewalks and still know most of the folks I meet; even though IÕ ve been gone and many years removed. One evening, I ran into a former classmate at the local Grand Union. We hadnÕ t seen each other for many years, and he reminded me this year would be our 40th class reunion. Ò Forty years?Ó , I asked incredulously. Ò Are you sure?Ó I started running the numbers through my mind, and sure enough, he was right! Ò Damn,Ó I mumbled under my breath, Ò So many trout, and so little time left.Ó I thought about his remark as I waked back to the house. It was a very difficult pill to swallow. Ò Another place, another town,Ó I muttered to no one in particular. Ò NowÕ s not the time to dwell on such matters. There are still trout to be found, and plenty of ground I need to pound. I need not worry about it at all right now.Ó The following morning I caught my first brook trout of the new season. It fell for a dry fly that I had skittered under an overhanging stream bank, in my old back yard. I was not surprised in the least. The little brook has always produced trout, even though it winds itÕ s way right through the middle of town. It is rarely fished, and often overlooked by anglers seeking bigger waters and larger fish I was just as excited at the age of 58, as I was at the age of 8 and an hour later I still had a silly smirk on my face. Any fish taken on the fly is a trophy, and if you want more, sometimes it pays to wish for a little less. And while I may never be able to truly go home again, it sure is nice to shed the restrictions of age, and walk in the footprints of my youth every once in a while. Next year, IÕ ll be back. Though IÕ ll be another year older, IÕ ll fish as if I’m still nine years old and I’ll drift a fly right by that overhung bank again! I can wait.

Long live the queen

S

tudying the lives of the social insects, like most ants and many bees, has long been of interest to many insect biologists because they are among the few groups of animals that live in very large colonies, not unlike the way we humans live in urban areas. Attempting to understand whatÕ s going on within colonies of social ants, which may contain hundreds or even thousands of individuals, most of which look exactly alike, would seem impossible. Yet we know that there must be sufficient order and meaning to the behavior of each of these ants to allow the colony to flourish and breed new members to both carry on the work of the colony and spawn the creation of new colonies in the area. Recently, three researchers from two institutions in Switzerland have devised a method that begins to provide us with some answers to whatÕ s going on in such colonies. They established experimental ant colonies using a fouryear-old queen they collected after a mating

flight. Remarkably the queens of the species they used, a close relative of our carpenter ants, have a life span of up to 26 years. The life span of the worker ants was found to be considerably less than that of the queen, being in the range of 8-12 months. They determined the age of all worker ants that were placed within their experimental colony by color-coding each worker beginning 60 weeks before the experiment started. Then, a month before the start of the experiment they marked each worker ant with a distinct barcode and they used between 120 and 200 worker ants per experiment. The nest chamber, the queenÕ s home, was kept in the dark and connected by a tunnel to the foraging chamber that was exposed to light and dark cycles mimicking day and night, as would be the case if the nest existed in nature. The food

for the colony was scattered in this latter chamber. Both chambers were filmed from above using infrared light. In this way they recorded the position and orientation of each individual twice per second. Their goal was to learn the frequency and type of contact engaged in by each ant over a period of 41 days. A pair of ants was presumed to have made contact if the front end of one ant was found to be located within a shape representing the second ant. In this way they hoped to decipher the manner in which information was distributed among the various worker groups. What they learned from over nine million recorded interactions was that the worker ants segregated into three groups: One they labeled the Òn ursesÓ because they spent most of their time tending to the queen, her eggs, and her lar-

val offspring. This group comprised roughly 40 percent of the colony. The second group, about 28 percent of the colony, was the Òc leanersÓ because they seemed to frequent the rubbish pile. While the third group, about 30 percent of the colony, was labeled the Òf oragersÓ because they spent more of their time foraging for food. The Òc leanersÓ group was formed only sporadically from members of the two other groups. ÒN ursesÓ and Òf oragersÓ primarily interacted with members of their own group and secondarily with members of the Òc leaners.Ó Furthermore, when the researchers followed any particular ant they learned that a worker ant generally moves through each of these groups as it ages. That is, they are Òn ursesÓ when they are young, Òc leanersÓ when middle-aged, and Òf oragersÓ when they are older and, because they spent much time away from the nest, more at risk of injury or death. This is reminiscent of what weÕ ve learned about primitive human hunter-gatherer tribes wherein the roles played by individuals within the tribe may change as they age.
