“Waynestock” lends a helping hand to others By Lindsay Yandon NORTH CREEK — In response to the success of last years “Waynstock,” Wayne Bukovinsky is seeking to give back to the community that came to his aid by sponsoring a second annual “Waynestock” on Saturday, Aug. 15 at the Ski Bowl Pavilion. After recovering from a near fatal motorcycle accident last April, Bukovinsky founded a non-profit organization called the North Country Hardship Fund. His NPO seeks to raise money for families who have been monetarily burdened by an unexpected medical emergency such as his. All proceeds generated from this years “Waynestock” will go to the North Country Hardship Fund and be distributed to local families in need of assistance. Following in the path of last years event, there will be auctions, raffles, bake sales, entertainment and opportunities for donations to be made to the cause. “Our goal is to keep these families afloat,” said Tim Ellifritz, contributing member of North Country Hardship Fund and friend of Bukovinsky. Last year, the benefit was able to raise into five figures, and this year those involved hope to see the same success. The event is open to the public at no charge.

“A Jolly Good Time”: Maxam's on Garnet Lake By Candace O’Connor Printed with permission from the Oct. 2008 edition of Adirondack Life. This piece is part of the Johnsburg Historical Society exhibit at TPCC "As Time Goes By" - opening on Aug. 29. "A jolly good time awaits you at Maxam's," promised a 1930s-era brochure with photos of a comfortable resort on Garnet Lake. For some 60 years, until it burned in a spectacular 1968 fire, Maxam's attracted a loyal clientele, drawn by the excellent food, beautiful setting and reasonable rates. Its owners for much of this time were Floyd and Bernice Maxam with the help of her son Jack and daughter Dorothy Maxam Mosher. Today, both Maxam children have summer homes along the lake, where there are still a few

Camp Che-Na-Wah brings song and dance to Tri-Lakes Nursing Home

The Camp Che-Na-Wah girls along with Ruth Wortman met individually with residents of Tri-Lakes Nursing Home following the presentation. By Lindsay Yandon NORTH CREEK — Ruth Wortman, director emeritus of camps Baco and Che-Na-Wah in Minerva, accompanied 47 campers to Tri-

Lakes Nursing home in North Creek on Tuesday, Aug. 4 where they entertained residents with presentations of song and dance. Che-Na-Wah girls ranging in age from 8-16 performed selections originally prepared for their week-

ly camp shows. From classic Broadway song and dance to contemporary pop, the girls aimed to bring some joy and excitement to the residents of Tri-Lakes. Campers who visited brought with them a host of backgrounds,

some visiting from New York City and others from Europe. “We feel it’s important for the campers to experience the community as well as realize that they

Local runners fare well in Race the Train By Thom Randall WARRENSBURG — While runners in North Creek’s annual Race the Train event ran to surpass their own goals, the race itself Saturday set a record with the largest number of participants ever, officials said. A total of 315 runners registered for the 2009 event, versus 268 enrolled last summer, event organizer Ann Arsenault said. “For a long time, 300 has been our goal, and this year we beat it and we’re thrilled,” she said, noting the record attendance was unexpected as the event was held on the same day as a wellknown footrace in Saratoga Springs. Sunny skies and relatively cool, dry air contributed to a picture-perfect day for running, Arsenault said. Another record was set too, with the youngest-ever racer, Anthony Parillo of Ballston Spa, finishing the race with an admirable 1:19:55 time. Most of the youth, however, participated in Race the Train’s non-competitive Family Fun Run, which had 54 participants. The race was open to children up to the age of 10, Arsenault said. “It was fun to see excitement of little ones, with expressions of joy on their faces, receiving medals,” she said.

Suzanne was the fastest local female racer in the competition, which had 315 entrants. Spectators, a group 117 strong, rode the train and watched the competitive runners along their route. The runners who beat the train received a medal with a

Maxam’s From page 1 traces of the Maxam lodge complex. The history of Maxam's dates to around 1900, when Floyd's father, Frank Maxam, began shopping for real estate. Garnet Lake, then known as Mill Creek Pond, was a thoroughfare for logs shooting down from Lizard Pond to the Hudson River. Frank had worked as a logger, and in one camp he had met a cook, Alma Suprenant. Alma and Frank married, and as their family grew to six children, they searched for a place to settle. Around 1905, Frank found 89 acres on Mill Creek Pond, where the pair opened a rustic hotel. Meanwhile, someone — perhaps Alma Maxam or postmistress Eda Russell — rechristened Mill Creek Pond as "Garnet Lake." In 1923, a young schoolteacher from Staten Island, Bernice Journeay, came to vacation in the Adirondacks with friends. At a dance at Maxam's, Bernice met 25-year-old Floyd, the oldest son of Frank and Alma, who was instantly smitten. When the dance was over, he walked her back to her boardinghouse, stood on the porch and kissed her. "Or maybe she kissed him, but anyway he fell backward into the rose bushes," said Dorothy Mosher. After their marriage, Floyd and Bernice moved to the New York area, but Floyd missed the mountains. In 1925, they returned to Garnet Lake, bought Maxam's and had their children, Jack and Dorothy. Each spring, their rental season began with a sprucing-up of all the buildings. From the 4th of July until Labor Day, families and singles arrived in waves. In the 1930s, adults paid $21 a week, all meals included. For a small charge, guides led hiking, fishing and hunting expeditions. To ensure successful fishing for his guests, Floyd dug a 15-acre pond out back, stocked it with trout and hired a corncob pipe-smoking guard, Hattie Russell. At all hours, the kitchen crackled with activity. A series of talented cooks — Annette Cameron, Bea Pasco, and Mary Leigh — arrived in the wee hours to begin work. Behind the scenes, life was far from relaxing for family and staff. "It was a lot of hard work from the time we were kids," says Jack Maxam, now of Stony Creek. "I would just sit down to a meal and I'd hear: 'Jack, somebody wants a boat.'" Even in the winter they had to fill the two ice houses that supplied their ice boxes all summer. During World War II, Maxam's closed temporarily because of gas and food rationing. Then, in January 1946, Floyd Maxam was found dead in his car a few miles from home. Coming back late at night, he had gotten stuck in a snowdrift, stayed in the running car for warmth and died of

JHS Quilt Appraised at $1,575 JOHNSBURG — At a recent program sponsored by the Town of Johnsburg Library, quilt expert Kathryn R. Greenwold examined a quilt belonging to the Johnsburg Historical Society (JHS) and appraised it at $1,575.

It was created and designed by the artist Virginia Juergensen who lived in the Town of Johnsburg. This quilt will be raffled off by JHS on Aug. 29 at Tannery Pond Community Center to raise funds to support its work of collecting and preserving data about the history of the Town of Johnsburg.

carbon monoxide poisoning. Could they carry on without him? Bernice placed ads to announce that Maxam's was back in business, and customers flocked there once again. That summer, Governor Thomas Dewey's bodyguard was a guest, and he had to call the governor's mansion every day on Maxam's only phone: an old crank model in the kitchen. The children eavesdropped, and so did curious neighbors on the lake party line. Midway through that summer, heavy rains came. "My mother sent us out back to the trout pond, to see how it was doing," says Dorothy Mosher. "It was gone. The rain had washed out the earthen dam and dislodged the huge iron wheel that held it in place. All the fish were gone, too, released into the lake. Some nice trout were caught in Garnet Lake after that day." Soon the Maxam family began to change as Jack left for the Korean War, and Dorothy got married. Bernice decided to close the boardinghouse, convert the bungalows to cottages and rent to a few summer visitors. In 1964, nearly 70, she sold much of her property to Elizabeth Filkins of Riparius. Four years later, a fire broke out in the largely vacant buildings, and one by one they went up in flames as the old, dry timber caught fire. Today, a few fire-scarred trees are still visible near the beach. Now the one-time Maxam property has been split into 10 parcels, seven owned by non-family members. But fond memories of Maxam's linger. "It just had a homey atmosphere, that's all," says Mary Leigh.

Serendipity Spinners at the Adirondack Museum

Loon Lake Live! concludes successful concert series SARANAC LAKE — Loon Lake Live! will present the fourth and last set of free summer chamber music concerts in its thirteenth anniversary season on Aug. 15, 16, and 17. Saturday at 10:30 am, the group will present a “Family Fun” concert for children and their caregivers at the Saranac Lake Free Library. Music for strings, guitar and oboe will be featured in concerts at the Loon Lake Jewish Community Center at 7:30 pm on Sunday and at the historic Saranac Laboratory, 89 Church Street, at 7:30 pm on Monday. Although Loon Lake Live! programing is primarily comprised of string instruments, week two featured a French horn and the upcoming week will include Meliset Abreu on guitar and Miriam Kapner on oboe. Abreu has been described by Soundboard Magazine as “confident, daring and amazingly accurate.” She performs extensively as a soloist and chamber musician and teaches privately. A recent Kapner performance was described by the New York Times as “a sensitive exploration of the oboe’s singing character and its technical armory.” She has performed in Germany, Israel and Hawaii and with many orchestras throughout the eastern United States. The string performers this week will include three of the founding members of Loon LakeLive!, Lori Lax and Catherine Beeson (violas) and Sara Fierer (cello). Lax was first stand violist in the American Symphony Orchestra under Leopold Stokowski and a teacher at the Manhattan School of Music. She is currently on the staff of several summer chamber music festivals. Fierer plays with the Boulder (Colorado) Philharmonic and teaches at the Denver Waldorf School and in her large private studio. Beeson is currently Assistant Principal viola with the Colorado Symphony and performs with the Lenape Chamber Ensemble, Santa Fe ProMusica chamber orchestra and Extasis tango octet. Joining Lax, Fierer and Beeson in the string department will be Aaron Packard (violin) who received music degrees from at Oberlin Conservatory and SUNY Stony Brook. He is a resident of the Berkshire Mountains, spending his time as a caretaker, bookseller and music maker. “This year has been fabulously successful, with warm, appreciative audiences,” said Catherine Beeson, Artistic Director of Loon Lake Live! “We have enjoyed presenting innovative programming that is accessible to the entire community, delivered in a welcoming and educational environment.” Loon Lake Live! presents many of the classic and much-beloved composers of the past, but also regularly features compositions by living and lesser know composers. According to Beeson, the group is particularly proud of their “Family Fun” series, held on Saturday mornings at the Saranac Lake Free Library and devoted to “sharing classical music to stimulate and nurture the next generation.” Private contributions provide much of the support for the free concerts, with many relatively small donations. This year the group is also receiving funding from Stewart’s Shops and the New York State Council for the Arts.

BLUE MOUNTAIN LAKE— The Serendipity Spinners hail from the central and eastern Adirondacks and will bespinning wool at the Adirondack Museum through Aug. 17. The group has been spinning together for nearly twenty years and their member list has grown with the passage of time. Members of the Serendipity Spinners will demonstrate their skills in the Mark W. Potter Education Center from 10 am to 4 pm and is included in the price of general admission. The group will process wool from sheep and alpacas. "Processing" includes scouring or washing the fleece, picking and carding the wool, and finally spinning and plying the yarn. Weaving will also be demonstrated. The group uses both hand cards and a drum carder; their spinning wheels are primarily Ashfords. They will spin with drop-spindles as well, and will encourage visitors to take a turn. Some of the women will knit throughout the week. Examples of knitting, dyeing, felting, and weaving will be displayed. Wool processing is part of a summer-long series of craft and trade demonstrations at the Adirondack Museum. To see a complete listing, visit the museum's web site

Editors, you are indeed the valve to our reservoir of local history to be shared with the public. In advance our best wishes to Lindsay Yandon, and our thanks. This week we also wish to announce with deep appreciation the receipt of a grant of $750.00 from the Community Fund of the Gore Mountain Region at the Adirondack Community Trust.

Sincere thanks to Denton Pubs, Johnsburg Historical Society

Readers Poll Do you think this summer ’s rain has had more of an adverse effect on local businesses than the current economic downturn has?

To the News Enterprise: North Creek’s Race the Train event, held Aug. 1 for the eighth year, continued its tradition as a great success and a fine example of a community coming together for a worthy cause. Its success is primarily due to the 100-plus volunteers that tirelessly turn out to help year after year. All proceeds benefit the Johnsburg chapter of Dollars for Scholars to provide monetary awards for our local students attending college. Fifty-five local and regional businesses continued their generosity and made this day possible. Special thanks go to our major Race the Train sponsors: Alexander Funeral Home, Alpine Lodge, Barton Mines, Black Mt. Ski Lodge and Motel, Braley and Noxon Hardware, Community Bank, Copperfield Resort, Creative Stage Lighting, Friends Lake Inn, Garnet Hill Lodge, Martin, Harding, and Mazzotti, National Grid, North Country Imports, North Creek Woodworking, OP Frederick’s Restaurant, Regional Radio, Stewarts Shops, TC Murphy Lumber Co.,the Town of Johnsburg, Upper Hudson River Railroad, Upstate Insurance, The Chronicle, The Post-Star, and the North Creek News Enterprise of Denton Publications. Last but not least, we want to thank our hosts, John and Jerry Riegel of the Upper Hudson River Railroad and the dedicated committee heads, many of whom have worked on the race since it began eight years ago: Larry Blackhurst, treasurer; Bob Sherwood, safety; Candace Lomax and Wendy Sargent, raffle; Shelly Fuller, mailings and volunteers; Robin Jay, student volunteer coordinator; Sam Allison, finish line; Heather Butler, split timing; Stan Williford and Debbie Bedard, refreshments; Sarah Liebelt, water stops; Dan Olden, results; Cliff Welz, train coordinator; Tracy Watson, Fun Run Director; Dave Harrington, E.

Adventures on Fish Ponds


certain acquaintance says that, “If you don’t get wet, you don’t have no fun.” I had a lot of fun on Sunday, Aug. 2. I was on the trail to Fish Ponds south of Baker’s Mills by 8 a.m. knowing it was probably going to rain by afternoon. I had my “Blackjack” 12.5 pound canoe over one shoulder, a too heavy back-pack on my back, holey “cross-trainers” on my feet, and a net shirt on (the deer flies banging at the window while I was still in the car were scary—how do they know you are in there?). On the trail I slowly opened the hiker’s register, wondering

if the deer mouse was still living there in a leaf nest. Yup, with a squeaky family. Right away I had to wade through water in the trail (you can’t bushwhack easily carrying a ten foot boat). I was so glad I had dried my shoes overnight. This early wetting made the rest of the trip easier as I didn’t try to dance around puddles. The trail was open hardwoods, with many big white ash, which need to be appreciated before the Emerald Ash Borer gets them. There is a major effort to contain this very destructive insect in western New York but there is very little hope of doing this. It will kill all the ashes of many species if it gets loose. Those big purple hanging things have attractant in them. Seven percent of our forests are ash, though it must be higher along this trail. By 9 a.m. I was on the water of Upper Fish Pond. The point of the trip was to check the status of the beaver dams between the two Fish Ponds in preparation for a possible through trip by boat to Cod Pond, about eight miles south. The water was high because of many small dams, often possible to get over while sitting in the boat, the others not usually too much of a problem either. It still took an hour to go the half-mile before I was on Lower Fish Pond partly because of taking time to look at the flowers (all natives, a rare and wonderful situation these days) and to figure out what the small dark duck was. This involved taking off my life-vest and the put-on-backwards net shirt (duh) so I could use my binoculars effectively. She obliged by swimming back and forth, chirring agitatedly the while because her young were in the sedges calling to her. I managed to get a really good look at her before she flew back to them. White-eye ring, solid jet-black bill, raised feathers on top of head, but back at the house nothing fit the bill (is that where that came from?). The bill on a ring-necked duck is supposed to have a white ring, but it had to be that. They are

Rail repair is very welcome news! To the News Enterprise: Apparently you scooped the Post-Star and The Chronicle with your story about the railroad track repairs — Congratulations! If I read the article correctly, it indicates that the repairs cost around $12,500 rather than the $130,000 reported by other papers...That is fantastic! Positive news is indeed good news! Many accolades go to those in leadership who sought to come up with an affordable, viable solution rather than opting to let the railroad tracks go and stay in disrepair, or worse yet, turn the right-of-way into another hiker or bike path. I’m probably in the minority here, but I am very pleased to see that the railroad tracks were repaired so the Upper Hudson Railroad can re-start their runs to 1,000 Acres Ranch and hopefully beyond. In 2007, my father and I took the “40 Miler” which ran from North Creek to the Saratoga County line and back. It was a very pleasurable ride with some great scenery along the Hudson River. I’m glad we did it as the UHRR doesn’t offer this ride anymore — however it generated good memories, and we still talk about it. Although the railroad has been getting a lot of negative press lately, mainly in the aforementioned newspapers, I think this area definitely needs a tourist railroad. I’m glad that the UHRR is here, hopefully to stay and wish them every success! Gregory Klingler Queensbury always a treat as they are not very common. The lower pond had the same pH as Upper but it was loaded with buttonbush, usually thought of as a higher pH indicator. Sometimes plants have a mind of their own. There was one tiny peaty island covered with bog plants— rose pogonia, pitcher plant, cranberry, bog buckbean, sedge. Most of the rest of the watercourse was lined and filled with typical marsh plants, including swamp rose, verbena, steeplebush, meadowsweet, swamp milkweed, one spectacular white water lily, and big areas of yellow water lily, mostly beheaded by beavers. The fog against the ridges was lovely, the sounds only those of the birds that belong there, including the “Hic, three beers” of the three olive-sided flycatchers, good to see as they are declining most places. Not even small planes disturbed the wildness (they had more sense). The only man-made object I saw from the water was a huge right-side-up aluminum scow which I am pleased to report does not leak--it was full of water. Fishermen, bring a bucket. As the next few dams were small and the sitting kind, I just kept going. About a mile down the outlet I would have had to stand up to get over a slightly bigger dam and the stream narrowed, so I stopped and ate lunch at 10:30 a.m. and saw the first sprinkles on the water. Luckily, it didn’t rain hard until I got off the water on the upper pond at the campsite. Small boats fill up quickly. But, I was thoroughly soaked before too long, the rain pounding noisily on the carbon fiber of the canoe. (I’ll have to complain to the maker.) By the end I was carrying an extra ten pounds of water soaked into everything. I had intended to just check out the first pond outlet but one easy dam leads to another. It felt like an “adventure”, though as I always had my life vest on and the weather was warm, I wasn’t really in any danger. But it was almost too much “fun”.

Farm Town addiction


here’s a new love in my life. Actually, it is more like an addiction. Oh, it’s not anything like drugs, alcohol, sex, pornography or gambling. I am addicted to an online computer game called Farm Town. I can understand how someone living in a city apartment might become enamored with the idea of having a farm and growing crops, having animals, trees, flowers, etc. But I actually live in the country in a 100+ year old white farm house, although I’m not growing anything (unless you count some onions, two rhubarb plants, and three old apple trees). The way Farm Town operates is much like the real world with goals that are similar to those of today’s society. The object is to rise up the ladder of success and be rewarded with a better title or job description. As the player reaches ever higher levels, she is able to purchase different crops, animals, more land, and eventually she can get a small house, a barn and silo.

Points are earned by planting and harvesting. This doesn’t sound like a terrible addiction, but the problem arises from always wanting more – a bigger white house, a pond, a river, a mansion. Farm Town is an escape from reality. The big difference between it and real-life farming is that the game affords almost instant gratification. Grapes take only four hours to ripen, potatoes one day and pumpkins three days. Unlike reality, the farmer has no worries about the weather, how cold it is, or whether plants will get enough sunshine. There are no potato bugs in Farm Town, the work is not back breaking and you don’t even have to get your hands dirty. It’s all done with the click of a mouse. One similarity to real life is that my farm requires constant attention. With all those crops ripening so quickly, it is necessary to constantly harvest, plow and reseed. There are days when my virtual farm is well tended, and my virtual flowers are watered, while my real life property is ignored. I can spend a great deal of time on my virtual farm, visiting my virtual neighbors, and moving my outbuildings, fences, trees and flowers from one spot to another. I’m going to quit cold turkey – just as soon as I get a big white house with a creek flowing on the other side of my dirt road. I think I’ll call it Mill Creek.

Do Stores Lose When Couponers Win?


f you're a regular reader of my column by now you know that I love paying as little as possible for my groceries. Getting many things for free is great for the household budget, and it's fun, too. Yet, as you start to see your weekly grocery bill dropping by a third or even by half you may start to wonder, "Is my store losing money because I use coupons?" You'll be happy to know that your store doesn't lose a dime when you use coupons. In fact, they make more money when you use coupons to save. The next time you're clipping coupons, read the fine print on one. The text reads, "Manufacturer will reimburse retailer the face value of this coupon plus $0.08 handling fee." Did you catch that? Not only does the store get back the coupon's entire worth, it also will receive from the product manufacturer a payment of 8 cents per coupon redeemed. Now, 8 cents may not seem like a lot, but if I take 20 coupons to the store this week, the store will make an extra $1.60 during my shopping trip. I save money and the store makes more money. It's a win-win. In one of my coupon classes recently, someone asked me if the store still makes money when a shopper uses a coupon to get an item for free. Yes, it does. Here's a great example. This week, my grocery store is having a "dollar sale" in which items are on sale for $1 each. Pairing $1 coupons with a $1 sale is one of the easiest and best ways to get grocery items for free. So, I had five $1 coupons during this sale and I bought five $1 items with them. Even though I got those five products for free my store will still get the $5 cost of those items reimbursed to them, plus 8 cents for each coupon I've used. I went home with five free products and my store will receive $5.40 from my coupons. Rest assured, even though you're taking home free things, your store is still being paid for them ... just not by you. Why do manufacturers offer coupons that will many times give shoppers their items for free? Manufacturers want shoppers to try their products. They work hard marketing a brand and enticing shoppers to try it. They hope that by offering a coupon you'll try their product, realize

that you can't live without it, and continue to buy it on numerous occasions in the future. They're trying to build brand loyalty and product awareness. You also may wonder if the manufacturers themselves lose money when people use coupons. Manufacturers do, indeed, reimBy Jill Cataldo burse stores for each coupon that shoppers use. However, coupons are part of their larger business plans. Manufacturers spend millions to establish a new brand or continue cementing loyalty to an old one. They often need to make shoppers aware of varieties of existing products or seasonal items, and they're willing to pay a certain amount of money in the form of coupons as part of these important marketing strategies. Of the hundreds of thousands of coupon inserts that arrive in newspapers each week all over the country, the number of coupons that are actually cut out and redeemed at the stores by shoppers is around 6 percent. That's it. About 94 percent of all coupons are thrown in the trash. Reading that statistic always makes me cringe. All that "cash" being tossed away? It makes me shudder to think about all of the free goods that many people pitch into the recycle bin each week. If they only knew how many things they could get for free with those coupons. Who doesn't want to get things for free? Almost everybody does. Coupons make it very easy to get items for free. Next week, I'll tell you another easy way to get free groceries with coupons.

Supervisors ponder personnel expenses By Matt Bosley ELIZABETHTOWN — Essex County supervisors are leaving the door open for two tentative salaried positions in the midst of strict limitations on county hiring. A policy instituted by Essex County Manager Daniel Palmer requires county department heads to seek resolutions from the board of supervisors before including a request for new paid positions in their 2010 budget proposals. The policy is designed to limit spending on personnel, one of the largest portions of the county’s budget. Transportation coordinator Nancy Dougal brought a request to the Essex County Human Services committee Aug. 10 for the creation of a new account clerk position in the county’s transportation department. The position is necessary, she said, because the transportation department plans to start billing New York State directly for rides provided to Medicare patients for medical purposes. Currently the billing is done through the Department of Social Services where Dougal said the paperwork ends up changing hands several times. Committee members were generally unenthusiastic about the proposal, questioning why it was necessary to add a position for a task that was already being done. “This could very well be a case where hiring an accounting clerk is going to save money,” said Wilmington Supervisor Randy Preston, “but it’s a little cloudy at this point.” The resolution to consider the added position passed, but many committee members expressed hesitation with the idea of ultimately including it in the 2010 budget. In the Economic Development Committee, a similar discussion arose regarding a proposal to retain Barbara Brassard as Empire Zone coordinator amidst an anticipated loss

of state funding for administration of the program in 2010. Currently, Essex County budgets $40,000 with another $23,000 coming from the state. Committee members mulled a resolution that would add $10,000 in county funds to the program to offset that $23,000 disappearing. Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafava explained that despite loss of state funding, a coordinator is still required to help participating businesses renew their eligibility for Empire Zone benefits, which may include tax breaks or utility discounts. There are reportedly as many as 82 businesses utilizing the program in Essex County, and some may be eligible for benefits for the next 14 years. Scozzafava chairs the Empire Zone Board of Directors, and said that their plan was to expand Brassard’s job duties to make up for the marketing and promotion of the program that she would no longer need to do. “We felt the position was important enough to all the 18 communities to be included in the 2010 budget,” Scozzafava said. Other supervisors, such as Preston and Robert Dedrick of Ticonderoga, opposed the move, suggesting that Jody Olcott and Carol Calabrese, the co-executives of the Essex County Industrial Development Agency, could take on the workload of keeping the program intact for participating businesses. “I don’t see how we can continue to absorb this cost as a county,” said Preston. “I know it’s a sensitive issue because somebody could be losing their job, but somewhere somebody’s got to draw the line.” Minerva Supervisor Michael McSweeney and North Elba Supervisor Roby Politi each argued that spending more to keep Brassard should be avoided if possible, especially since the state funding for the position was ending. Randy Douglas, supervisor of Jay, joined Scozzafava in support of the resolution, arguing keeping Brassard in the position was worth the extra expense because of her ability to assist local businesses. Other supervisors noted how many such businesses asked to keep her. While she and Calabrese would be able to meet the requirements for maintaining Empire Zone benefits, Olcott said, they wouldn’t be able to offer the same level of assistance to businesses as Brassard, and that the IDA would still require about $20,000 a year in funding from the county for Empire Zone administration if Brassard’s position were terminated. Committee members ultimately voted down the resolution 3-4, opting not to support the $10,000 increase.

Governor seeking to streamline bureaucracy, ease regulations to boost economic development By Jonathan Alexander ALBANY — An executive order signed by Gov. David Paterson Friday has environmental and labor groups fretting, but has gaining substantial support from those backing economic development. Paterson’s mandate is expected to initiate sweeping reform across the 110 state agencies by stripping power from regulatory boards and commissioners, and handing it over to five hand-picked insiders of Paterson’s administration —with an eye on economic development. The order requires a review of each regulatory agency ,within the sprawling state government bureaucracy, by the newly formed Regulatory Review Reform Committee. The order states that the committee will conduct a review of regulations and paperwork for each state agency and that those procedures that are deemed outdated, unbalanced, unwise or unduly burdensome to business development will be eliminated. In response, environment, labor and consumer advocacy organizations across the state have called emergency meetings to discuss the potential consequences of the order and the best methods of combating the fallout. Sierra Club Atlantic Chapter representative Roger Downs said Tuesday the Sierra Club is “absolutely opposed” to the order. Downs said that the regulations currently in place are meant to preserve and improve public health and well-being — and the order will do no good in the long term. “We have a structure in place to review regulations and this is just a gift to business,” he said. Downs said he is worried that regulations which mandate reduced greenhouse gas emissions and labor-friendly employment practices may be at risk. Meanwhile, the new measure has prompted several government watchdog organizations to question how open such a close-knit review committee will be. But governor’s office spokesman Morgan Hook said Tuesday that such concerns are unfounded. He said Paterson supports many regulations and environmental groups have nothing to worry about. ”There are regulations that are necessary and are there for a reason,” he said. “Those regulations aren’t going anywhere.” The regulatory review committee is composed of five senior members of Paterson’s cabinet. His secretary Lawrence Schwartz, who regularly refers to himself the governor’s enforcer, will chair it. The first round of the committees review process will delve into the inner functions of the Department of Environmental Conservation, the Department of Health, the Department of State, the Department of Taxation & Finance and the State Liquor Authority. Hook said New York State has a stigma that has been driving businesses away for years, and this measure is the Governor’s attempt to change that. ”We’re hoping to make changes to the more outdated and burdensome regulations that have no place in a 21st century economy,” he said.

have a lot to give back,” said Wortman. Following the show and a brief session that gave the Tri-Lakes residents an opportunity to interact personally with the campers, the Che-Na-Wah troupe continued their outing by experiencing the the sights and sounds of North Creek at the train depot and Tannery Pond Community Center. “There is so much you can do in the world while still having fun and we hope to bring a little bit of joy to those we come into contact with,” said Wortman. Each and every performer voluntarily showcased her talent with aim to not only entertain, but to also bring joy. “It was so great to go to the nursing home and bring some happiness to others. I felt so honored that I was able to help brighten someone else’s day,” said Che-Na-Wah camper Alexandra Popkin.

Camp Che-Na-Wah was established in 1923 as a family-run endeavor and the Wortman family has had the privilege to own and operate the camp for over 50 years. Along with her husband Melvin, Wortman has been involved with Camps Baco and Che-Na-Wah since 1948 and have been directors since1954. They strive to provide a traditional summer camp to a host of children from around the world in the backdrop of the Adirondack park. This years presentation at Tri-Lakes marks the 15th year that Wortman and CheNa-Wah campers have visited the nursing home with such programs.

RAQUETTE LAKE — Great Camp Sagamore will be host to several well known public figures from Friday, Aug. 21 to Saturday Aug 22. Steve Hayes, actor and comedian will join with folk pop musician Catie Curtis to bring a taste of nationallyrenowned and award-winning talent to the local arena. Hayes will perform his one-man, knock down, laugh-out -loud comedy entitled Hollywood Reunion at 8 pm on Friday. The performance is a hilarious investigation of a man's obsession with the classic screen divas and sirens of the 1940s and '50s. “The belly laughs alone are worth the price of admission,” says Steve Hayes won Outstanding Actor at the International New York Fringe Theatre Festival in 2006 and is most wellknown for his role in Trick with Tori Spelling and Christian Campbell, which was nominated for Best Picture at the 1999 Sundance Film Festival. As a comedian, Steve is a nine-time nominee and three time winner of the Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs MAC Award for Outstanding Comedian and Characterization. He is also the recipient of the Backstage Bistro Award for Comedy Performer of the Year. He is a six time recipient of the ASCAP Popular Music Award and most recently he was seen playing the role of “God” in the hysterical Off-Broadway hit The Big Gay Musical (2009). Recently he has taught comedy at The Cabaret Convention at Yale University and served as a professor of theatre arts at Cazenovia College. He currently resides in New York City. The lawn at Great Camp Sagamore will come alive on Saturday at 7 pm with Curtis’ musical styling. With her intoxicating brand of folk pop music, smart and enduring lyrics and engaging personality, Curtis has created a dedicated following that has grown steadily over the course of her 15year career. With 9 albums, the latest called Sweet Life and recognition that includes a 2006 International Songwriting Competition Grand Prize, Curtis has proven that she's the real deal: a musician with the kind of raw talent and artistic maturity that makes her a force to be reckoned with, albeit a sweet force. There's never been anything remotely jaded about Catie Curtis. From the first time she picked up a guitar -- an instrument given to her gratis by a neighbor who asked only that she promise to learn to play it -- the native of rural southern Maine has used music as a sort of sonic superglue to bring people together. The option to stay at Great Camp Sagamore, the historic vacation estate of the Vanderbilt family for this entire arts and music weekend is available. Visit or call 518.352.7715 for information on this and other events of the weekend.

Adirondack Park: Older and poorer, but still beautiful


ealthy, productive land and water resources, wildlife habitat, parks and open space, culturally and historically significant landscapes, and available and accessible recreation lands are fundamental to the American way of life and our future prosperity,” notes a recent report by the private, bipartisan Outdoor Resources Review Group. “At stake now and for future generations is the health of our people, our economy, our communities, and the lands and waters on which we depend, in short, our quality of life.” This wide-ranging review, sponsored by the Outdoor Resources Review Group, looked at how Americans engage with and value the nation’s land and water resources and its outdoor recreation assets. A summary of the report calls for a comprehensive overhaul of programs and policies to safeguard these resources for future generations and to meet the needs of a growing population. “The American environmental movement has focused so much on preserving nature that it has neglected to do enough to preserve a constituency for nature. It’s important not only to save forests, but also to promote camping, hiking, bouldering and whitewater rafting so that people care about saving those forests,” wrote Nicholas Kristof of The New York Times. The protection of wilderness lands presents a unique paradox. Wilderness lands, which are defined as “untrammeled by man” will only be preserved if people use them. In the eyes of many, if the land isn’t utilized, it holds no value and thus, there is no need to protect it. “Will baby boomers constitute the last generation of Americans to share an intimate, familial attachment to the land and water?” Richard Louv asked in his book Last Child in the Woods. This growing detachment of youth from the natural world is part of a national trend. This detachment is evident in the Adirondacks as well. If our youth do not use and enjoy the local woods and waters, they will see no need to protect them. What will happen when the next generation takes over? In the park, “environmental advocacy” can be considered an industry due to the wide range of preservation/protection groups and organizations based in the park. The Adirondack Nature Conservancy in Keene Valley and The Adirondack Council in Elizabethtown are both considered major employers in their respective communities. The Saranac Lake based, Adirondack Wildlife Conservation Society employs six full-time and 10 part-time staffers. The Adirondack Mountain Cub has a multi-million dollar economic impact in the park, with a substantial payroll in Lake George where it is headquartered and at Adirondac Loj on Heart Lake near Lake Placid. The national trend of a growing detachment of youth from the outdoors is further exasperated in the Adirondacks due to an out-migration of area youth that was detailed in the recently released, Adirondack Park Regional Assessment Report. The report, which examined the “state of community,” profiling the 103 municipalities that comprise the Adirondack Park. The report detailed a significant decline in the number of young people living in the park. The park will be a special place for our children only of they have the opportunity to enjoy it. If youth of the region do not possess the skills and resources to utilize the park’s natural resources, they are strangers in their own land. Rural areas across the country suffer from the same situation which has been labeled as a ‘brain drain’ or ‘bright flight.’ It’s a situation that occurs when many of the best and the brightest students leave town for college and never look back. As the ‘wired generation’ continues to tighten their bonds to the virtual world, our children will likely spend less time in the local world of forests and streams. If they don’t use the land for pleasure and recreation, they may not develop the strong bonds to the land that their parents or grandparents possessed. As a result, the land will not have a hold on them and it will be easier for them to leave.

Welcome to Old Fogeyville According to statistics, the Adirondack population is aging at a pace that is three times the national average. The town of Newcomb has the highest median age (51.4 years) in the park. The report estimated that by 2020, only the west coast of Florida will exceed the Adirondacks as the oldest region in America. In the park-residents are on average five years older than residents of the state and communities inside the BlueLine have experienced an increase in median age of nearly nine years between 1980 and 2000. The median age of residents has risen by only three years in the rest of the state. The report detailed a notable decline in residents under the age of 10 and a growing exodus of residents between the ages of 20 and 35. Students in grades K-12 represent only 13.5 percent of the park’s population, as compared to 18 percent nationally. School enrollments in the park have decreased by 329 students annually throughout the current decade, which is equivalent to the loss of one average size Adirondack school district every 19 months. During this timeframe, the park has also seen a significant in-migration of residents between the ages of 35 and 65. In the 10 year period, the report projects that there has been a loss of more than 7,000 residents between the ages of 0 and 34 and an increase of more than 13,500 residents who are 35 and older. These factors, coupled with the aging babyboomer population, indicate a continued aging trend. School districts are experiencing a decrease in new students due to this out migration of young families. A steady in-migration of semiretired and retired persons will not be enough to offset these loses. Although some Adirondack counties have experienced population growth in recent years, the majority of the growth in the region is occurring on the periphery of the park and beyond. Other disturbing statistics reveal that household incomes in the park are lower than those in most of New York State. Approximately 40 percent of the homes are owned by people whose primary residence is outside of the Blue Line. The Adirondack Park has also experienced a major job losses in the traditional forest products industry, while other extraction industries such as mining have all but disappeared. The corrections industry has made up for some of the population and industrial losses. Today, one out of every 26 people that are considered year round, park residents living in the Adirondacks resides in a correctional facility. Correctional facilities now account for over 5,100 park “residents.” Public sector employment, on the federal, state, county or municipal level is responsible for one out of every three jobs in the park. These employment and diminishing population trends will likely continue unless a clean industry can settle into the park an offer viable employment. Until that time, seasonally dependent positions in the service industry will have to fill the void, but they are unlikely to reverse the ongoing brain drain. Next week, I will explore some creative options for retaining our youth and stemming the ongoing ‘bright flight.’ Joe Hackett is a guide and sportsman residing in Ray Brook. Contact him at

nyone who missed the June 26 edition of New York Outdoor News is probably unaware of the controversy surrounding the chairman of the APA board, Curt Stiles, and his decision to open a locked gate to gain access this spring to a public camping area at Lake Lila. The gate was closed for early season maintenance, but Stiles and three others, not wanting to hoof it the 5plus miles to Lake Lila, decided to first summon the aid of a state forest ranger to open the gate and then, when one could not be found, root around for a hidden key. They conveniently located one under a rock by the gate — as the story goes, left there by a property owner, and Stiles proceeded to drive down the dirt road. The road is a public easement through private property that winds into picturesque Lake Lila — part of the Whitney Preserve purchased by the state a decade ago. The group was later found by a forest ranger, and while no tickets were issued, many are calling the move hypocritical by a man who has consistently come out in favor of restricting motorized access to public lands in the Adirondack Park. New York Outdoor News Editor Steve Piatt is one such person. Piatt blasted Stiles in a June 26 editorial — even going so far as comparing his hypocrisy with that of former governor and attorney general Eliot Spitzer. Piatt pointed out Stiles was the lone Adirondack Park resident on the APA board who voted against continued float plane access to Lows Lake. He said many speculate Stiles didn’t “find” a key to the gate, but rather was provided one by someone at the state. “But beyond that, consider: a guy who plays a lead role in deciding who goes where and how within remote areas of the park, who has time and time again taken firm stances against motorized access, ‘finds’ a key to a gate, helps himself and then drives into an area which at the time — the gate is opened later in the year — was closed to motorized access,” Piatt wrote. “This is a guy who should be taking the parking spot furthest away from any trailhead, who should be following park regulations to a T and, when in doubt, erring on the side of caution.” I have to agree strongly with Piatt’s sentiment — the difference is, Spitzer took responsibility for his actions — Stiles has done no such thing. No apology. No admission of wrongdoing whatsoever. It is no wonder the division between the Adirondack Park Agency and Adirondack residents exists, when you have people in power positions at the APA believing they are entitled to something the rest of us are not. I have left my vehicle at many a locked gate and walked — with my kids for that matter — to a lake or pond whose access had been cut off due to poor road conditions. I like to think our forest rangers have a pretty solid reason for doing this, like the road could pose a hazard to those unaware of its condition. When a gate is locked, the road is closed to motorized access. Period. Would you drive around a barricaded road which had been closed because of an accident or natural disaster not knowing of the peril that may lay ahead? Apparently, Mr. Stiles would. And, those who work with him would no doubt defend his honor, which is exactly what happened here. When asked if Stiles had broken any law, the APA and DEC determined he had not, because the road he accessed was a private road on which the state holds a conservation easement. Interestingly, there are a number of similar easements held by the state where gates block access during certain times of the year. Perkins Clearing in Arietta is one such location that comes to mind. Does this determination by the DEC mean the general public has the right to drive under or around that gate when it is closed for road maintenance? Dangerous precedent, if you ask me. So, next time you encounter a locked gate accessing a state conservation easement, leave no rock overturned in your quest to get through. I’m going to go out on a limb here, however, and say when law enforcement approaches you, the outcome will be a shade different than what Mr. Stiles experienced.

By Jonathan Alexander

RAY BROOK — The Adirondack Park Agency is now at work revising three proposed legislative bills in the hope they will gain support in the state Assembly and be introduced in the state Senate during its fall session. The bills were first proposed by the agency during the summer session, and failed to gain Assembly sponsorship after local representatives weren’t comfortable with them. Local Assemblywoman Teresa Sayward said this week that the bills just weren’t in the shape legislators wanted and revisions would be required to garner Assembly sponsorship. “We just thought it would be best to move them as a package instead of in pieces,” she said. The Affordable Housing Bill and the Municipal Planning Fund bills gained the support of local governments in principal, but minor revisions were apparently required to gain overall approval. APA spokesman Keith McKeever says the agency is making substantive changes based on the recommendations of local government officials. “We are hoping we will get a sponsor in the Assembly and the bills in the Senate will be moved,” he said.

The Affordable Housing Bill would allow four structures to be built in low- and moderate-intensity zones that under existing APA regulations would only accommodate one — as long as the property is relatively close to a “town center.” An early version of the Bill cited that APA approval of such development would hinge on the structures sharing a single septic system. But Local officials argued that the shared septic system would be highly cost prohibitive, and the APA subsequently axed the requirement, and reduced the required distance from navigable waters from 1/4 mile to a tenth of a mile. The revised bill gained state Senate sponsorship from powerful downstate Democrat Carl Kruger. “Now under this new bill, due to provisions made with local government and AATV, if the site has adequate soils for individual septic we will no longer require a shared septic system,” McKeever said. “It will be more of a

case-by-case and site-by-site determination.” The Municipal Planning Fund Bill would raise funds for local communities to conduct planning studies and bankroll creation of local comprehensive and master plans. But a sticking point occurred when funding was to be dependent on fees for permits applications on minor projects like the construction of a one-family home. But listening to objections raised by local residents, the APA changed their proposed bill, calling for funding to be supplied by permit fees linked to more substantial projects, McKeever said. Another concern for local officials is a provision in the third proposed bill – which deals APA operations – that would eliminate the some of the public hearings now required during a building application and review process. APA officials said the bill would streamline the way the agency does business and allow agency staff to

give each project its due diligence. The Agency Reform Bill would increase the amount of time the agency has to review a project from 60 to 90 days. Local officials have seen the first proposal as a way the agency can make it easier to bypass local concerns, and the latter measure as causing additional delay to proposed developments.. The first two bills are linked with issues that are top concerns of local government officials — who say residents are suffering under a burden of unfunded state mandates, and that the second-home market is raising housing costs to exorbitant levels unattainable to park residents. Sayward said this week the APA Reform Bill still needs more work. “There has always been a bone of contention in the Adirondacks among the local people that their voices aren’t heard,” she said.
