Canoe, Kayak Challenge on tap

Goodspeed to town: Recreate at the beach.
By John Grybos firstname.lastname@example.org NEWCOMB — The North Country Challenge, a nearly 10 mile canoe and kayak race around Lake Harris, returns for its ninth year Saturday, Aug. 20. The race attracts serious kayakers, said Joanna Donk, who's one of three members of the race committee, with medals awar ded to first, second and third places. About 35 boats show up each year , Donk said. The race takes place on flat water, and the r ocks along the circuit ar e well-known. If the water's fairly low they can be easily seen, making for a smooth race course. When Donk and the other organizers arrive at the town beach on the morning of the race, there are always a couple eager racers waiting with their craft on their roof racks. The ones who show up to compete for the win ar e a highlight for Donk. The boats they compete in ar e “beautiful pieces of craftsmanship,” long, long boats that get them ar ound the race in a little less than an hour-and-a-half.

Moose Fest to highlight calling contest By John Grybos email@example.com INDIAN LAKE — Barks, bellows and grunts. Moos and moans. With a range like that, contestants at the town's first-ever moose-calling imitation competition have their work cut out for them.
Slated for Satur day, Sept. 24 from 2 to 4 p.m., the calling contest is the big new event at the Gr eat Adirondack Moose Festival, said Brenda Valentine, one of the event organizers. “It's a hoot,” she said. It's actually mor e like a foghorn, said Ed Kanze, an author and natur e guide who'll judge the competi-
tion. The low ululations make the sound travel, especially helpful when the beasts navigate foggy autumn forests. He's joked that the grand prize for the best moose mime will be enticing one of the animals out of the fore st. Though it 's s illy t o t hink i t might happen, he said, it's CONTINUED ON PAGE 10

BAKERS MILLS — A pig roast and Harley ride fundraiser will celebrate its fourth year Aug. 20 at J & J's Foxx Lair Tavern. The event is held in memory of Chris Hitchcock, a local logger who was killed in a motorcycle accident in 2007. Registration begins at 11 a.m. A disc jockey starts the music at 3:30 p.m., continuing until the Steven L. Smith Band plays at 10:30 p.m. The pig is served at 5 p.m., with a donation of $10 asked from diners. Biker games are played, said Gretchen Kirby, Hitchcock's aunt and an event organizer. A highlight is the Weiner Game. Two posts have a beam cr ossing them, with a string tied in the middle of the horizontal beam. Dangling from the string is a hot dog or sausage dipped in mustard. The object is for a rider to drive their motorc ycle through the posts, while their passenger tries to catch the food with his or her mouth. There will be door prizes and 50/50 raffles for a hammock and two quilts handmade by Hitchcock's mother. The money raised funds a scholarship for vocational education in fields of conservation and heavy equipment. Proceeds also go to a loggers' hardship fund that helps loggers and their families through tough times. The scholarship is administered through the Warren County BOCES. Interested students write essays that ar e reviewed by Hitchcock's family, who choose the student they feel is most deserving.

Supervisor: Beach open for recreation By John Grybos
firstname.lastname@example.org NORTH CREEK — Though the water is closed to swimming, the town beach is still open for re creation, said Supervisor Sterling Goodspeed at the town meeting Aug. 16. Chamber of Commerce President Dave Bulmer asked if activities like kayaking lessons were still possible, and Goodspeed said, “Yes now, and yes in the future.” The town has no intention of letting the pond become an overgrown swamp, said Goodspeed. The ar ea can and should be made aesthetically pleasing, as it's an important part of the first impression made on visitors coming in along Route 28. If nicely landscaped and stocked with fish, the pond can offer a usable and attractive r ec ar ea, even without swim-
ming, said Goodspeed. “We can design it to be beautiful, we can design it to get a bunch of use,” he said. The vote to begin pr ocedures for closing wasn't a vote against the beach, he said, but a vote not to spend more taxpayer money on maintaining the pond as a swimming site. In an economic climate with government bodies tightening their pursestrings, it's dif ficult to justify the annual expense of keeping the beach open when it er gularly fails clarity tests by August and is closed by the Department of Health, he said. Addressing an audience concern, Goodspeed said that this closure doesn't mean the pond can never again be used for swimming. I t c ould b e r eopened i n t he f uture, i f c ircumstances warrant.

Senators call for creative economic planning By George Earl
email@example.com LONG LAKE — During a joint visit in Hamilton County late last week, U.S. Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand spoke with community members and business leaders a bout t he e conomic f uture of the North Country. The two lawmakers hosted a r oundtable discussion at the Long Lake Central School. The general tone of the forum in Long Lake was upbeat, but ur gent. Like other rural regions affected by the recession, the Adir ondacks are feeling the pinch as federal and state dollars become scarcer. The senators offered some advice for getting local economies on track – and their message was “get cr eative.” Garry Douglas is the executive director for the North Country Chamber of Commerce. He was among a small group that took part in an informal discussion with the senators. Douglas said that improving passenger rail service is crucial to the economic future of the park. “As we talk mor e in this nation about the need to green our transportation systems, we need to start preparing now to create alternate transportation modes,” he said. Douglas explained that refurbishing the Adir ondack Scenic Railroad would help ensur e “that the Adirondacks don’t become, as they virtually are already, 100-percent dependent on oil driven tr ucks and cars winding in and out of the

That’s not sustainable going forward.” Douglas said the Adirondack Scenic Railroad, which extends fr om Utica to Lake Placid, is the last railr oad that extends into the Central Adirondacks. Douglas said he’s working on a creative way to improve it; he’s calling on the United States Army. “The department of the Army has a railr oad battalion that needs training missions,” he said. “And they will s elect p rojects a round the country and come in and rehab and upgrade rail lines. There has been an active conversation going on with them to explore the opportunity and find out if they might have an interest, and they do.” Schumer said he and Gillibrand would do what the could to help gr ease the wheels, including appealing to Secr etary of the Army
John McHugh, a North Country native. “The railroad thing seems very exciting. John McHugh always tries to help the North Country ,” Schumer said. “We worked closely together when he was in Congress and now Kirsten has taken his place on the armed services committee so we’ll have a good chance.” But they acknowledged that it’s getting tougher to secure money for local projects. That’s because of a Congressional moratorium on earmarks, the spending provisions that politicians traditionally tack on to federal bills for pet projects in their home states. Congr ess approved the moratorium earlier this year , but Schumer and Gillibrand came out against the ban. Schumer said during the meeting in Long Lake that a complete ban on earmarks was the wrong approach.
“What an earmark is, is it allows us to designate money,” Schumer said. “W e know mor e about what the North Country needs than some bur eaucrat in W ashington.” The ban on earmarks means funding for local projects like expanding access to broadband and wireless Internet have been put on hold. And now lawmakers are appealing directly to state agencies to try to secure funding for projects. During the discussion in Long Lake, several other “creative” ideas wer e floated by the senators, including volunteer -based strategies for extending broadband access to the homes of school-aged children. In addition to being cr eative, many of the ideas that were discussed at the forum emphasized volunteerism and entrepreneurship, rather than reliance on government.

News Enterprise Editorial
Lowe’s closure a reality check: We need leadership, confidence Soul searching needed L
ust two years ago Ticonderoga leaders envisioned a vibrant commercial district at its “Four Corners.” The area surrounding the intersection of Routes 9N and 74 already had Wal-mart attracting thousands of shoppers. Lowe’s and Dunkin’ Donuts had just opened. Rite Aid, wanting to be where the action is, moved from its downtown location to the “Four Corners.” Plans were being discussed to bring national hotel and restaurant chains along with several smaller retailers to the area. To prepare for the economic boom, the town extended infrastructure in the area. New York State modified Route 9N to handle the expected increase in traffic. Ticonderoga seemed poised to make an economic leap. Today, those dreams have been dashed. Dunkin’ Donuts closed just a few months after opening and now sits empty. Plans for the hotel and restaurant collapsed. This week Lowe’s unexpectedly closed, leaving 86 people unemployed and a 124,000 square feet building empty. Wal-mart remains and — like it or not — is the community’s retail engine. When Wal-mart expressed interest in Ticonderoga more than a decade ago, a common debate took place. Are “big box” stores good for communities? With the loss of Lowe’s, that debate has been renewed without an answer. Lowe’s failed, leaving behind a huge warehouse-type building that could sit vacant for years. Wal-mart has succeeded, providing jobs, area shoppers goods and local government taxes. Where does Ticonderoga go from here? No one can accuse local leaders of being disengaged. The community has the Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership, Ticonderoga Revitalization Alliance, Ti Economic Development Committee, PRIDE and the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce all working to improve the local economy. And it has plans. There’s the Quality Destination Plan, the National Main Street Trust plan and plans to construct a replica
18th Century sawmill to serve as a tourist draw and economic hub. Ticonderoga is not alone. Communities throughout the North Country are struggling to improve their economies. Almost all have similar local groups working on the issue. And there have been state programs, like the now-defunct Empire State Development Zones, that were supposed to spur economic development. Offering tax breaks, loans and other incentives, the EDZ program was supposed to bring major manufacturers and jobs to the North Country. To take full advantage of the program Essex County beefed up its Industrial Development Agency and communities constructed industrial parks awaiting companies. Today, those parks in Ticonderoga, Moriah, Schroon Lake and Keeseville sit mostly empty. Walking along Main Street in Port Henry recently, Tom Scozzafava could only shake his head. “I’m frustrated,” the Moriah supervisor admitted. “Our economy is worse now than when the (iron) mines closed in 1972. Look at the businesses that have closed in the last three years. Port Henry’s main street doesn’t have a single business on its east side. “What do we have to do? Why can’t we attract business here,” Scozzafava asked. “What do we need to do? I don’t have the answer, but I know we need to do a lot of soul searching.” The loss of Lowe’s is a blow the area economy, but perhaps it’s also an opportunity to do that “soul searching.” What type of economic development does a community want? What type is needed? What type is realistic? Those and many other questions need to be answered, especially before local communities roll out the red carpet for another big box retailer.

GUESTVIEWPOINT Rural communities take care of their
t's encouraging to see that New York state is decentralizing into regions. That's because as our founding forefathers knew, people who experience the result of their own decisions are better qualified to make sensible choices. By contrast, we as a nation and as a state have been suffering much like a person going into shock; the fingers and toes turn blue because the little oxygenated blood is reserved for the heart and lungs. Even the brain may be deprived of what it needs to function coherently, causing a blackout. We, the “fingers” and “toes” can and must adapt to the situation in a way that works, which is not by sacrificing our identity. Having recently come from a more heavily populated area, I've noticed more than a few positive things about the people here. You tend to be more connected to family and relatives. When Old River Road in North Creek was evacuated due to flooding, nobody needed public emergency shelters; all the evacuees stayed with family and friends. People who rely on public services are so few and far between that the agency for which I work, providing home care for elderly clients, is hard-pressed to find enough work for me close to Minerva where my son and I live. Back where we used to live, people are much quicker to expect public help, and the officials tended to practice less sense. That's part of why we moved up here. Those of us who had to work low-paying jobs to be there for our families suffered needlessly at the hands of authorities who didn't know the harm their ignorance caused. Trailers could only be placed in trailer parks. Officials wouldn't let us have porches big enough to comfortably hold a
picnic table. Deer carcasses by the road were much more common they are here due to hunting own than restrictions. And although we couldn't pay decent wages to the experienced cops who kept drifting to other towns willing to pay them what they were worth, we could somehow “afford” the huge, fancy high school my youngest graduated from before we moved north to freedom. While we still lived back there, I did manage to teach the concept of personal responsibility to my sons by taking them on hikes in the woods. Whatever they thought was important enough to bring, they had to carry until we got back home. Similarly, each region has different priorities and needs the freedom to decide, in this time of limited resources, which are worth carrying and how to take them. But as we all learned too well in the wake of 9/11/01, sometimes we just plain need help. It's wise to consider that our neighbors to the south could be stricken. Like a man who wakes up to find his house on fire, they may find that their “fingers” and “toes” are absolutely essential as they seek their own safety and that of their loved ones. It's a good thing that we live in a place where friendly folks volunteer help and advice, whether your concern is dealing with a rabid dog literally in your back yard, or perhaps slaughtering a chicken. Up here, people don't just throw out foods they can't eat when they change diets, they give it to someone else like a friend from church did for us (to the tune of at least three weeks worth of groceries!). We live, and need to live, in a Good Samaritan community where people see a need and fulfill it, rather than shun getting their hands dirty to help a stranger in need. Deborah McIlrath
uly 2011 will be remembered as a very hot and humid month when even the nighttime temperatures remained high. With such warm temperatures and below normal rainfall, it became necessary to water lawns and gardens to keep them from burning or drying up.
Space program benefits U.S. To the News Enterprise: In her article in the Athol-Thurman section, in the August 6, 201 1 issue of the Adirondack Journal, Evie Russell made the following comment: “Now that the U.S. space pr ogram has come to an end, it will save our nation billions of dollars. At this point, I wonder whether this extra money will go towar d paying off national debt, or will it go to another country? For some of us, discontinuing the space pr ogram came none too soon. The old timers used to say , “If we wer e meant to go to Mars, Jupiter, we would have been born there!” Another “old timers” saying was, “If we were meant to drive cars, we would have been born with wheels.”Aren’t you glad this closed minded thinking didn’t prevail? Please tell the 7,000 workers at the Cape or the 6,000 in Houston who just got their layoff notices that this program was a waste of money. Also include the workers in the surrounding service industry, fast-food, groceries, hotels, firemen, police and the teachers who will now lose their jobs because of the lack of customers as the workers move from the Cape area and Houston. Remember, this money was not just thrown into space, there to burn up or float around for ever, it was used to pur chase equipment and to pay workers here on earth. Thereby increasing the tax money sent to the Feds for them to waste on stimulus pr ograms that don’t stimulate, or war on poverty programs which have failed completely to r educe poverty. Also, ther e is no “extra” money . In fact, one of the r easons the space pr ogram was stopped is because this government has spent all the “extra” money so we ar e now $14 trillion in debt without enough to keep the program going. Some spin-offs of the space pr ogram are: computer technology, air quality monitor , virtual r eality, str uctural analysis for automobile design, consumer/home r ecreation, enriched baby food, water purification system, scratch resistant lenses.

Correction On page six of the July 30 edition of the News Enterprise, a photo of Ken Bitten was incorrectly identified as Bill McKibben.
The average high temperature was 83.4 degrees, and the average low was 58.5 degrees giving us an average of 70.9 degrees, 2.3 degrees above normal and the 7th warmest on record. The warmest July average was 72 degrees recorded in both 1987 and 1988. The coolest July was 65.1 degrees recorded in 1992. Any year when the average July temperature here is above 70 degrees can be considered to be a hot one. There have been only eight years in the last 30 when July has averaged above 70 degrees. Nights here in the area are usually cool, but July 21 the temperature here in Riparius at 11 p.m. was 82 degrees, a bad night for
sleeping. There were five days above 90 degrees compared to an average of 2.6 days. The highest temperature, 94 degrees, was recorded on the 21st and the lowest, 53 degrees, was recorded on the 15th and 16th. Rainfall for the month was 2.37 inches, 0.6 inches below normal and not nearly enough to satisfy lawns and gardens. The greatest amount, 0.78 inches, fell on the 18th with measurable precipitation falling on only eight days. The river reached its highest level, 4.43 feet, on the 18th and its lowest level, 2.70 feet, on the 1st.

Jesus just wants money To the News Enterprise: Hello, people. It’s me, the voice on hockey history, Hawkeye. People, here is a piece that will show to all why people should not go to church on Sundays or even pray to a false god. People, why go to chur ch or even pray to something that does not even exist, because people for years have put his prayers or a glorified book of pain first. People, the chur ch today has glorified a fake person who calls himself god is a joke and a con artist. People, when you get wronged in life others tell you to go to church or to pray , but the only person who is real and not a fake is the devil. People, in today’s community the chur ch has lied to its followers and others who have bought into a fake person who does not care about honest people. God causes people pain and suf fering and drives people over the edge into madness. Be warned, god does not exist because he was cr eated to raise money for these con artists. People, do not go to chur ch because it’s a waste of time, and it’s a money pit. Christopher "Hawkeye" Bennett Olmstedville

Community support is vital to continued success in our efforts to serve the children of Johnsburg. Our lar gest fund raiser , Race the T rain, was not able to take place this year due to the change in the railr oad provider. We are planning the r eturn of Race the T rain next summer in partnership with Iowa Pacific Railroad. Johnsburg Dollars for Scholars organizers
Gov. spending is important discussion To the News Enterprise: Thanks for your r ecent viewpoint in the July 30 issue. I agre e with your comments especially about Congress giving up personal-
ly and the scare tactics used to get what they want. I would like to add two other points. First of all, Social Security isn't an entitlement program, but many politicians choose to refer to it as such. This money was a for ced contribution under the guise of a r etirement pr ogram. I myself have contributed since I first started working at the age of 16. I have not stopped working since. I am now 60. For 25 years my wife and I were self-employed and wer e both contributing 15 percent of our gr oss income (and we wer e always at the top of the cap) to Social Security. I am suggesting that the ceiling be r emoved and all Americans pay the same percentage into the system. W e will then have more than enough money for Social Security and be able to lower the per centage rate we pay in. The second point is no one is addr essing how much we spend on our military budget. The politicians have convinced us, again with the use of scare tactics, that we need to spend 698 trillion dollars a year accord ing to Wikipedia, et al. I think this should be put on the bargaining table like everything else. Not everyone in this country wants to be involved in all of the wars we ar e now involved in. In fact, this is why some people voted for Obama. He said he was going to bring the tr oops home fr om iraq when he was campaigning, instead we have expanded the countries our tr oops ar e fighting in. This country has become the military for the world. We spend more on our military than the next 17 countries listed combined and six times as much as China, our near est competitor. Military spending has become big business and many of our elected of ficials are invested in it. Remember the famous words of Eisenhower's farewell address; beware the unchecked power of the militaryindustrial complex. Our elected of ficials seem to think they don't have to answer to anyone. Keep it coming Mr. Alexander, and thanks for giving the average citizen a place to make their thoughts and concerns public. God knows we have no where else when it comes to the media.

Minerva VFD, rescue prepares for emergencies By Mike Corey
email@example.com MINERVA — A violent thunderstorm has just passed through town. Trees and power lines are down on Healy Road and the Minerva Volunteer Fire Department & Rescue Squad has been dispatched to the scene because of burning tr ees and arcing lines. National Grid has been notified. It’s learned that a bunch of kids have been camping and partying near Healy Road. Upon the fire department’s arrival on the scene, it’s discovered that several kids have various injuries, some serious. Minerva Emergency Medical Services has been dispatched, and additional ambulances arrive following a call for mutual aid. It’s discover ed that thr ee campers have wander ed away into the woods and are now lost. A canine search and rescue unit has been contacted and arrives at the scene. One of the lost campers has a fractur ed arm, badly sprained ankle, and possible neck injury. The Minerva Town Supervisor begins the intense process of coordinating the complicated effort to handle this emergency. Did all this happen in Minerva on Sunday , July 17, at around 1 p.m.? It did indeed, but it was a drill, not the real deal. W ith extensive planning and plenty of participation from many people in the ar ea, the Minerva Emer gency Preparedness Committee held a drill that covered an emergency that could have occurr ed in the T own. The or ganizers used the established Incident Command System to respond quickly and effectively to a potential serious emergency. A total of 37 people participated in this emer gency pr eparedness effort that afternoon. There were partygoers, emergency shelter attendants, a worried mother, firefighters, EMTs
and other medical personnel, lost campers, a parking coordinator, command post personnel, canine rescue coordinators, Cash the dog, phone monitors, and vehicle drivers. In short, it was a concerted effort that worked well. Ther e were a few glitches, but identifying these later will make an actual emergency (or drill) progress more smoothly. “We wer e r eally pleased with the drill,”Town Supervisor Sue Montgomery Cor ey said. “ It’s t he f irst t ime in a long time a town drill like this was attempted, and we really had plenty of participants. We’ll put what we learned to good use in a re al emergency.” Following the drill, a potluck dinner was available at the Minerva Town Hall for all participants.

Creek train station to Riparius, with W illiam Bickham, of College Park, Pa., according to Mark Frost’s May 2, 1985 article about the 1967 trip in The Chr onicle. Ethel Kennedy raced in the Derby with mountaineer James Whittaker and capsized several times along the 7.5-mile trip. The best time of the May 7, 1967 Derby race was 1:03:15, by kayaker Emil Mascheck, of Toronto. Robert Kennedy finished in 1:11:29, taking third place in his class. Hauthaway finished in 1:04:24, the fourth best time of the day , in his oneman kayak. Hauthaway died at his home on Oct. 22, 2002 at the age of 77, according to his obituary. Robert Kennedy died from an assassin’s bullet on June 6, 1968 in Los Angeles. A U.S. senator r epresenting New York from 1965 to 1968, he helped pass the Senate’s version of the Wild and Scenic Rivers bill in August 1967. He was on the Senate Interior Committee at the time. The vote was 84-0. The senator never saw President Lyndon B. Johnson sign the bill on Oct. 2, 1968; the U.S. House of Repr esentatives didn’t pass its version until Sept. 12, 1968. The Wild and Scenic Rivers Act of 1968 instituted a National Wild and Scenic Rivers System to help pr otect the environment. These rivers can be found in 39 states and in Puerto Rico, and they ar e divided into three categories: wild, scenic and recreational. There is only one New York state river in the Na-Leave A Message70003 tional Wild and Scenic Rivers System, and it is not the Hudson River. In 1978, 73.4 miles of the Delawar e River along the New York-Pennsylvania border wer e added to the System and are now protected as the Upper Delawar e Scenic and Recr eational River, according to the National Park Service.

Prime was the agent who sold Binger ’s kayak to the museum, according to the artifact’s accession file. Binger, in another kayak, made the trip down the Hudson with Prime and Robert Kennedy. His detailed account of the trip was published as a sidebar to Prime’s article in the Autumn 1967 issue of American WHITE WATER. It is written in log format and explains that ther e were about 60 people in the party, which was divided into four groups. Binger was in Gr oup 3. The trip leader and or ganizer of the expedition was Bob Harrigan, a former national canoe champion from Washington, D.C. Ethel Kennedy and several children piled into a raft and were in Group 4 with members of the pr ess. (The media cover ed the trip fr om all angles: on the river, on the shore and in a helicopter.) “1045 hrs.: We’re off. The day is sparkling, warm and beautiful,” Binger wrote. “I am a bit nervous, as I always am before going down the gor ge, but console myself with the knowledge that the water level is low, and that the Senator undoubtedly has worse butterflies than I do, or should have.” The party stopped at 1 p.m. for lunch at the O.K. Slip. “1410 hrs.: Harris Rift upsets Senator R.F . Kennedy, D., N.Y. No wonder; it’s rough! Rubber raft pins his kayak to a rock during rescue operation. Nothing serious. On we go.” At 1830 hrs., Robert Kennedy invited Binger and other guests to cocktails at the Garnet Hill Lodge. “Martinis galore, dancing. No politics. Lots of heart...we all love each other, and exit happy, tired, exhilarated, in direction of the fleshpots of North Creek.” That’s how Binger ended his log of the Hudson River Gorge trip. Underneath his final words in American WHITE WATER is an advertisement for Hauthaway Kayaks, 640 Boston Post Road, Weston, Mass., specializing in touring, slalom and downriver models, as well as kayak accessories. Bart Hauthaway, of Hauthaway Kayaks, designed, built and sold kayaks from his residence in Weston. He also made Adirondack-style pack canoes, according to the Jan./Feb. 2000 issue of Paddler magazine. In 1967, Hauthaway was the executive secr etary of the American Whitewater Affiliation, which published American WHITE WATER. A world-class slalom kayaker, he provided photographs of kayaking competitions to the magazine. In 1972, he coached the U.S. Olympic kayak team. Hauthaway played a major r ole in the story of the Kennedy kayak; he constructed it in 1965 for David Binger. The kayak is 13 feet, 2 inches long, 26 inches at its widest point, and weighs 32 pounds. Hauthaway first used this model in the 1965 world championships, according to Boats and Boating in theAdirondacks, written by Adirondack Museum Curator Hallie Bond. It is significant because it is one of the first all-fiber glass kayaks. Kayak builders had long struggled with ways to connect fiberglass hulls to fiberglass decks, choosing instead to attach cloth decks to the fiberglass hulls. “Hauthaway solved the problem in the deck of this kayak by fastening it to the hull with pop rivets,” Bond wrote. Robert Kennedy never used the Hauthaway kayak in the Hudson River White W ater Derby. On Sunday , May 7, he raced down the river in a separate boat, fr om the North

Plenty of visitors take advantage of New York state’s wilderness and mix business with pleasure during working vacations in the Adirondacks. Yet, when it comes to the annual Hudson River White W ater Derby, you’ll find mor e pleasure than business in North Creek, North River and Riparius. In May 1967, U.S. Sen. Robert Francis Kennedy , D-NY, traveled to the North Cr eek region to take part in the 10th Annual White Water Derby and sample the wilder side of the upper Hudson River. He and his wife, Ethel, and most of his children stayed at the Garnet Hill Lodge in North River for the weekend of May 6-7.

At the Studios time, he was supporting a river conservation bill in the U.S. Congress (the W ild and Scenic Rivers Act) and headed north to the Adirondacks to check out the wildest sections of the Hudson River for himself. His visit would also help publicize the pr oposed legislation; the popular Hudson River White Water Derby was a perfect stage for northcreekdepotmuseum.com Kennedy’s political views on the environment.

Sporty’s to host steak roast MINERVA — Looking for some excellent summer enjoyment while contributing to a great cause? Sporty’s Ir on Duke Saloon, State Route 28N, Minerva, is hosting its annual Steak Roast Satur day, Aug. 20, 3 to 4 p.m. On the menu are steak, potatoes, corn, cole slaw, chowder and apple pie. A DJ will be ther e to spin tunes and a bagpiper will also provide great music. The dinner donation is $20 apiece — proceeds will go to the Minerva Volunteer Fire
Department & Rescue Squad for the purchase of a “Snowbulance.” It’s designed to transport patients fr om the woods who ar e injured or sick, whether in snowy conditions or not. Anyone who enjoys being outside in the Adirondacks — hikers, cross-country skiers, hunters, snowmobilers, snowshoers, ice fishermen and -women — would benefit from the availability of this Snowbulance in the instance of a medical emergency.
Indian Lake from page 1 not completely impossible. Mating season for these massive mammals, which can reach 1,200 pounds and six feet at the shoulder, is ramping up along with the festival. Males are the loudest, said Kanze, and at their most creative when luring potential mates. He's busy with homework studying the noises, and he doesn't think that the moose's calls are too low for human females to imitate. “We'll make sure we have gender fairness in the event,” he said. His criteria for judging will include accuracy, but spirit is important, too. The winner will be someone who takes the contest seriously enough to sound like a moose and is enthusiastic enough to make the proceedings enjoyable. “I'd like this to be fun, I'd like there to be an element of comedy,” Kanze said. The festival, in its second year , will r un Sept 24 and 25, fr om 9 a.m. to 5 p.m each day . Valentine said the first year set the bar high. “We were overwhelmed with tourists coming into the area to possibly see a moose,” she said. They did have at least one moose sighting last year, said Valentine, and they ask people to log sightings with the organizers. The event is put on by the Indian Lake Chamber of Commer ce, with the goal of raising funds for the organization and bringing people in to the town. The moose is a charismatic animal, said Kanze. Everybody loves the moose, wants to learn about it, wants to see it, he said. Kanze said Indian Lake is a gr eat destination. Though he's traveled the world, Indian Lake ranks highly as a favorite spot. He grew up downstate in Westchester County, but he's descended from early Hamilton County settlers. As a child, he spent a week every year around Indian Lake, and the area holds fond boyhood memories for him. He said he's honor ed to be invited to judge the competition, and being part of the town's festivities is meaningful and joyful.

The skinny on the state’s proposed plan to manage white-tailed deer
or those who have not kept up, the state is in the process of formulating a plan that biologists hope will help them better manage the white-tailed deer herd here, and new rules and season dates will most likely emerge as a result — some as early as next year. What does that mean to you? Well, that depends on your preferred hunting method and where you like to pursue deer. First and foremost, despite what you may have heard about the plan, I’m guessing there’s nothing in it that’s going to prompt you to sprint to the pickup and tear up your hunting license in protest. There is a ton of misinformation and rumors circulating about the plan, and the state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is asking all hunters to learn the facts before forming an opinion. So, for those who have not curled up in an easy chair with the 57-page document, I am going to do my best to simplify its contents and explain how the changes might affect you. Then, if you are upset about a particular part of the plan, at least you can make an informed response to the DEC.
Doe permits Biologists would like to switch to an across-theboard doe permit system instead of allowing a deer of either sex or antlerless only to be taken during bow and muzzleloader seasons. That means a hunter with the appropriate tags would still be allowed two bucks — one during regular season and one during primitive arms — but would need to obtain a deer management permit to take a doe during bow, muzzleloader or regular season, anywhere in the state. I spoke at length to state Wildlife Biologist Jeremy Hurst, who was instrumental in compiling the new plan and the recommendations in it. He said it is very difficult for biologists to have “scale control” when hunters are allowed to take does with both bow and muzzleloader tags every year. “In some cases, that’s not what’s best for deer management,” Hurst said. Instead, biologists would like to be able to issue doe permits based on the health of the herd each year — giving out more where needed and less where the herd is struggling from factors like winter kill. That would keep the number of deer more level from one year to the next based on what an area can support, Hurst said. The flip side to that, Hurst acknowledged, is that not as many deer management permits would be issued in areas with low deer densities, like the Adirondacks. “The reality is, in low population densities, we can’t afford much antlerless harvest,” he said. “If we had a year where we saw a big swing in deer or hunter numbers, the impact on the herd could be scary. It would take many years to rebound.” At the same time, it would open an opportunity for rifle hunters to take a doe anywhere in the state with a deer management permit for that area.
Antler restrictions Another area that is sure to spark some conversation in hunting camp is with regard to antler restrictions. The state proposes increasing the hunting area where antler restrictions are in place. Restrictions were put in place in 2006 in Wildlife Management Units (WMUs) 3C, 3H, 3J, and 3K. In these units, bucks taken have to have at least one antler with three or more points which are at least 1 inch long, including brow tines. The goal is to increase the opportunity to harvest 2-plus-year-old bucks with greater antler growth. The proposal on the table is to increase those restrictions to include WMUs 3A, 4G, 4O, 4P, 4R, 4S, and 4W, in counties like Schoharie, Greene, Delaware and Ulster, around and south of Albany.
Youth The plan quotes some startling statistics about dwindling hunter numbers, so in response, the DEC seems focused on getting more kids afield, and has proposed a special three-day firearms season Columbus Day weekend. The DEC is also advocating to lower the legal age to hunt big game to 12, some-
thing 46 other states have already done. Hurst said officials contemplated allowing youth out in late September, prior to bow season, but that plan didn’t coincide with the license year, which renews Oct. 1.
Season dates To appease bowhunters who will have to share the forest with youth gun hunters for three days, the DEC is proposing lengthening the bow season to the north and south. Under the plan, bow would open Sept. 27 to the north and Oct. 1 to the south. The northern season would run through muzzleloader, which would open a week later on Oct. 20. Regular season to the north would then start Oct. 27 and run through Dec. 9, and a week of late muzzleloader after that. The southern bow season would run Oct. 1-Nov. 16 when regular season would kick in, which would wrap up Dec. 9 and muzzleloader would follow Dec. 10-18. A proposal to mix in a four-day early muzzleloader season from Oct. 9-12 in the southern zone has stirred much controversy, as rumors have circulated that it is in the works for most or all of the southern zone. But Hurst said that’s not the case. Instead, the concept is to leave the option open for a muzzleloader season in areas with very high deer populations. Only then would a WMU be open to the early muzzleloader hunt, he said.
Crossbows, Setbacks and penalties DEC has taken more than 2,000 comments dating back to 2009 on this plan, and a majority of New Yorkers support the use of crossbows for all seasons, especially for those with physical disabilities, so DEC officials are endorsing them for use in the plan. The state is also proposing reducing the setback required for using longbows and crossbows around structures from the current 500 feet to 150. And, lastly, DEC is proposing an increase in fines and civil penalties for violators. The current penalty structure hasn’t changed since 1996, and many sportsmen’s groups support bigger penalties for those who illegally take wildlife.
What’s Next? According to Hurst, some of these proposals are more likely to be seen before others. The DEC is allowed to establish some rules on its own, like antler restrictions and season dates, while others take new laws in Albany. Recommendations like the minimum hunting age, increasing penalties and the use of crossbows, for example, take legislative approval, and will therefore take more time to put in place, as will a change to an across-the-board doe permit system in the northern zone. “Some of these are really just a concept, so lets not jump the gun,” Hurst cautioned. “There is no way, for example, that the Deer Management Permit system would come into play next year.”
How to comment For those who have not spoken up, the public comment period on the plan ended July 28, but Hurst said it will be several months before the plan is finalized and his office is not ignoring the opinion of those who are still submitting comments. Comments may be submitted in writing to DEC Deer Management Plan, NYSDEC, 625 Broadway, Albany, NY 12233-4754 or by email to email@example.com. Hurst can also be contacted directly at 402-8867.

onday, Aug. 15, 2011 has come and gone, and for the vast majority of outdoor travelers, the day passed by nearly unnoticed. Yet, for a tiny fraction of the millions of outdoor enthusiasts who visit the Adirondacks annually, Monday was an important date. It signaled the first day that licenses for the annual big game hunting season went on sale. It was a day that caused these enthusiasts to look back to the past, and to dream forward to the future. Although the day dawned cloudy, cool and drizzly, it provided nothing but sunshine and warm thoughts in the eyes of most sportsmen. It was a day that stirred up fond memories of past adventures, which mixed easily with anxious anticipation for future pursuits. Regardless of age and experience, the day is always a celebration of youth and the annual adventures that serve to keep us all young. I thought about this, as I hiked into the woods to my hunting camp on a rainy, Monday afternoon. It is only a short journey to the small cabin, which of- Pictured is the old Wildcliff Lodge on Cranberry Lake. fers just few comforts The place is an orig inal log cabin, that was f ormerly beyond a simple wood- used to house lumberjacks. It used to attract a lot of stove, and a couple of deer hunters, and a fair share of brook trout anglers. Photo by Joe Hackett soft bunks. Despite such rustic austerity, the camp provides an adequate retreat. Although it isn’t located far from the din of civilization, it still provides an adequate escape. Like most camps, it allows me to retreat from the typical cares and concerns of the day, and to slow my pace, and escape the race. Camps come in all shapes and sizes, but the buildings don't much matter. The physical location is more important than the size or number of structures. A rough camp can be just as comfortable as a Great Camp, since camp is simply a state of mind, and a place in time. What truly matters is the company we keep, and the commitment to return to camp year after year. The real lure of a camp is the unique draw that continues to bring us back to the woods and waters, from one generation to next. What is done in camp today has changed very little, from what was done over 100 years ago. It is still intended to offer a respite from the civilized world, and to provide us with a place to hunt deer, swap lies, mess about with boats, catch some fish, eat hearty food, laugh, have a drink, play some cards, smoke cheap cigars, and enjoy the company of old friends. Although camps are often defined by their physical location, there is a much more potent, spiritual sense of camp. Upon returning to camp, we are transformed, we are relaxed and subdued. Time slows, worries begin to diminish, appointments are forgotten, good times are remembered and everyday concerns begin to seem just a little less important. Our worries center on the berries that need to be picked, the fish that must be caught, or that big old buck that always disappears over the far hill, on the evening before opening day. Fortunately, in camp, it always seems such troublesome concerns can be put off for just another day. While traveling in the Five Ponds Wilderness a few weeks ago, I took the opportunity to revisit the old Wildcliff Lodge, located on the far, southern shore of Cranberry Lake. The property has long since been sold, and it now appears to be abandoned, with roofs sagging, and the buildings in various states of collapse. But for many years, the remote log lodge was owned and operated by proprietors, Vern and Barbara Peterson. It offered a bar and restaurant, where travelers could always find a warm woodstove and a cold beer, or a home cooked meal, and a kind word. Generations of hunters and anglers considered it to be their own “camp,” and I was most fortunate to number myself among them. Despite its current dilapidated condition, I was transported back in time from the very moment I set foot on the shoreline. Faded business cards still festooned the bulletin board outside on the front porch, and the place still carried the scent of wood smoke, mothballs and wet woolies, despite its many obvious points of ventilation. It was a camp that I once shared with old friends, many of whom have long since departed. However, as I stepped onto the long, wooden porch, and gently pushed open the front door, their laughter returned. The warmth of their smiles mixed easily with faded memories of the times we had shared, and for one brief moment, I was back to camp. I carried these memories as I traveled into Spectacle Pond, Olmstead Pond, Simmons Pond and beyond to the old, Slant Rock Camp located high on the hillside near Curtis Pond. I hope to return one day and share in the laughter again. It sure was good to visit the old haunts! Joe Hackett is a guide and sportsman residing in Ray Brook. Contact him at email@example.com
