Johnsburg Central students ring the bell for the Salvation Army

County leaders approve 2010 budget

By Lindsay Yandon INDIAN LAKE — In November, Indian Lake Central School (ILCS) students traveled to France and learned from within a foreign culture. The seven day trip was sponsored by the ILCS French Club. Alternating each year, students in Indian Lake have the opportunity to travel to Paris, France or Québec City, Canada. These trips are open to all students in grades 9-12 even if they are not currently enrolled in a French class. Nineteen students made the trip to France this year. They were Jessica Bain, James Benton, Abigail Darling, Hank Evatt, Amanda Forsell, Karisa Giessen, Emma Gray, Morgan Hinckley, Sydney Hinckley, Allison LaPrairie, Zakari LeBlanc, Megan Miller, Zachary Mitchell, Allison Pine, Colleen Pine, Merrill Pine, Jenna Roblee, Vinnie Smith and Chelsea Walters.

QUEENSBURY — Warren County Supervisors voted Friday to approve a 2010 budget that calls for raising $36.3 million in property taxes, reflecting a 6.1 percent increase overall from 2009. This increase, however, is substantially higher for tax rates in individual towns — property owners will shoulder county tax hikes between 5 percent and 24 percent for 2010. In Warrensburg, the county tax rate will be increasing from $3.15 to $3.52 per thousand in assessed valuation, an 11.7 percent hike. In Lake George outside the village, the increase will be 19.6 percent, according to figures supplied Friday by county administrators. Inside Lake George Village, the increase is 9 percent. In Chester, the increase is 5 percent. But in Johnsburg, the increase in tax rate from 2009 to 2010 is far higher: property owners in this upcounty town opening their tax bills in late January will see an increase in county taxes of 23.5 percent. In Queensbury, the increase

Newcomb seeks a revival: Turns to The Chazen Companies By Lindsay Yandon NEWCOMB — The town of Newcomb is in the final stages of reviewing a comprehensive plan developed by the Chazen Companies of Glens Falls. The plan will soon be presented to the Town Board for approval and acceptance. The Chazen Companies are a multi-disciplinary company with technical expertise in engineering, surveying, environmental, planning, and landscape architecture. They were appointed to the job by a committee of the town board in the summer of 2008. A comprehensive plan is a policy guide that sets forth directions for the future of a community in the form of both long and short term goals. It is a blueprint to help guide them through the future and establish a cohesive vision for progress. The document itself will serve as a guide to land use, economic development, natural resource protection and much more. In 1977, recognizing the lack of economic development in Newcomb, a similar plan

was adopted by the town board and updated in 1990, but was not executed successfully. “The town board has to look at our goals from a policy perspective and work with the finances. I think the current board will do

that well,” said committee member Bob Lilly. The document has been revised by Essex County and the Adirondack Park Agency and the final comprehensive plan will be presented to the town board in general ses-

sion on Jan. 12. The Chazen Companies have presented drafts of the plan in several public hearings over the past few months in order to amend the document according to public opinion. “We made many changes based on the feedback from those hearings,” said Lilly. “We hoped that the public's’ comments would be visionary, thoughtful and respectful and they were.” Stew Messinger of the Chazen Companies led the public hearings and presented the documents to citizens. “There is opportunity for development here,” he said. “I could easily see 500-600 new homes being built here if this plan is conducted successfully.” Messinger cited the positives of living in Newcomb. He listed the beauty, the low taxes, the strong school system and the opportunity for industry in National Lead and forestry among other things. Newcomb was crippled by the closing of the National Lead mine about 30 years ago. Hundreds of people moved away from the town and the hemorrhage continued in the

Local volunteers give back North River United Methodist Church joins the North Country Outreach Center to deliver holiday cheer By Lindsay Yandon NORTH RIVER — Members of the North River United Methodist Church lent a helping hand to the North Country Outreach Center as they assembled plates of cookies that were included in the Christmas baskets distributed by the Outreach. “There was a significant increase in the number of families requesting baskets this year,” said Anita Abrams of the Outreach Center. “Caring people from surrounding communities have been extremely generous in their donations of food, money and cookies this year.”

Requests were so abundant this year that the Outreach Center had to request aid from community members. Residents from all surrounding areas baked additional cookies and delivered them to North River United Methodist Church for the occasion. The cookies were included in the Christmas baskets sponsored by the Johnsburg Food Pantry. They were distributed to 125 qualified families throughout the Johnsburg area on Dec. 22. The baskets, which included a turkey or ham and all the fixings for a Christmas Dinner were assembled by boys scouts, 4-H members, home schoolers and multiple other volunteers. The pantry serves approximately 175 families (almost 500 individuals) each

month. Families have the opportunity to pick up food two times per month at the pantry, which is staffed entirely by volunteers. The outreach center also spearheaded a recent toy giveaway, which made it possible for approximately 150 children to wake up with toys under their Christmas tree. The toy giveaway was lead by Mary Sullivan and her crew of volunteers. “We've seen an increase in need locally as the economy has become more and more problematic,” said Abrams. “It brought tears to my eyes to see how lovingly our community members share with each other. It makes me feel so proud to be a part of this community.”

Perry’s work ranges from an 8 ft. panoramic image of Lake George to an 8x10 image of a lone leaf on a mountain trail. "Being a nature photographer has given me the opportunity to go and see many places and to hopefully bring back images to share that will bring a smile to ones face and a sense of peace in a very busy world. I hope my Images bring alive the spirit of the wilderness and the beauty of our surroundings,” he said. An artist’s reception has been scheduled for Perry on Jan. 16 from 5-7 pm. The reception is free and open to the public and will be followed by a film, “Frozen River”, sponsored by Our Town Theater Group.

NORTH CREEK — The Adirondack Museum would like to give locals the opportunity to begin the New Year with an afternoon of engaging tunes and tales. Join the staff of the Adirondack Museum for "Working for the Man: Songs and Stories of Adirondack Lumberjacks and Miners." The special program will be held at the Tannery Pond Community Center in North Creek on Sunday, Jan. 10 at 3:30 pm. There will be no charge for museum members and children of elementary school age or younger. The fee for non-members is $5. The historic work of loggers and miners was framed by dangerous conditions, back breaking work, long hours, and low pay. Although daily life was hard and often heartbreaking, it was also filled with music, laughter, stories, and strong community ties. "Working for the Man" will feature musician Lee Knight singing traditional ballads of logging, mining, and rural life. Museum Educator Christine Campeau will join Knight to share historic photographs, artifacts from museum collections, and stories of work, family, and life in Adirondack logging and mining communities. Born in the Adirondacks, Lee Knight now lives in Cashiers, North Carolina. He is a singer, storyteller, song collector, and teacher of folklore, folk life, and folk music. He performs regularly at concerts, folk festivals, and summer camps, where he tells stories, sings ballads, and calls dances. He has appeared with Pete Seeger, Jean Ritchie, Bill Monroe, Alan Lomax, and many others. He will play traditional hand-made instruments. Following the program, Lee Knight will perform at the Copperfield Inn from 4:30 - 6 pm. Christine Campeau, the Adirondack Museum's School Program Manager and Museum Educator, is known throughout

By Lindsay Yandon NORTH CREEK — On Dec. 16 the North Country Outreach Center celebrated at their annual volunteer Christmas party held at the Outreach Center. The Outreach Center uses this party as an opportunity to thank the volunteers that offer their time and services to the Outreach Center throughout the year. “Without these volunteers, we would not be able to do what we do,” said Outreach Center board president Judy Brown. Highlighted at the party was the annual volunteer raffle. The Outreach Center collected gifts from local businesses to raffle off to their volunteers. Local businesses who contributed this year included Gore Mountain, Sara Pearsall, Garnet Studio, Lizzie Keays, the Copperfield and the Grist Mill. “This year ’s prizes were beautiful and well-deserved by our volunteers,” said contributor Susan Murante. 2009 raffle winners are as follows: • Elizabeth Canaan won a Gore Mountain ski pass. • Louisa Preston won a Marcy Dam print from local artist Sara Pearsall. • Charlotte Needham won a Garnet Studio gift certificate. • Kathleen Donnelly won a Lizzie Keays gift certificate • Cindy Morse won a Copperfield gift certificate. • Lisa Thomas won a Grist Mill gift certificate.

Seymour was joined by chaperone Shelley Fuller, who is a teaching assistant at JCS and parent of member Colleen Fuller. The student group treated shoppers with a helping hand and the sounds of some of their favorite Christmas carols. As members of the NHS, they are dedicated to upholding its core values of scholarship, character, leadership, service and citizenship. JCS students are required to have at least two volunteer hours a month and this project served as their hours. They all, however, willingly attended.

Indian Lake shines bright

Paris From page 1 the Louvre to the Eiffel Tower to the Champs-Élysées and many more in-between stops at French supermarkets and rides aboard a Bateau Mouche on the Seine river. One of the most unique parts of the trip occurred when each of the students spent their evenings in pairs with a French family in the suburbs of Paris - Lisses, Bondoufle and Courcouronnes. “The students always struggle the first night with communication in French with their French families,” said chaperone Hinckley. The students, however, generally responded very well to the families, according to Hinckley. They went out of their way to try new foods and take advantage of being immersed a totally foreign culture. “All of the students enjoyed their family experience,” she said. When asked about their favorite parts of the trip, students excitedly replied: “shopping;” “the Eiffel Tower;” “the King's palace;” “Notre Dame;” “Montmartre;” “eating new foods” and “the French families.” This year ’s group was the largest to make the trip to France and marked Indian Lake’s third year in Paris. They plan to continue the trips abroad on the current rotation plan. “We hope that every ILCS student has the opportunity to go on each trip if they'd like,” said Hinckley. These trips are not paid for by funds raised, instead each student saves their own funds — most starting a year in ad-

December snow opens new trail system APA sponsors routes for skis and snow shoes


By Lindsay Yandon NEWCOMB — The late snow delayed the premiere of the new ski and snow shoe routes at the Adirondack Park Agency’s Visitor Interpretive Centers (VIC) at Paul Smiths and Newcomb.

TOPS comes to Newcomb Minerva maintains an average 2% increase in taxes By Lindsay Yandon MINERVA — Supervisor Mike McSweeney has kept the tax increase in the town of Minerva to an average 2 percent per year over his four year term. Taxpayers will see a 2.17 percent increase under the 2010 budget. The total tax levy included in the new budget is $1,400,310 with. Due in part to an effort to conserve funds, no major projects have been included in the recently accepted budget. Minerva, however, endured a relatively smooth budget process this year despite the state-wide financial struggles. “I think local towns will start to see the real effects of the current financial situation in the 2011 budget process,” said McSweeney. “We were pretty fortunate this year.” Many accomplishments, however, have been recently completed, according the McSweeney. A new furnace was installed at the town hall, highway equipment improvements were made, town transportation upgrades were made, a water project was completed, and improvements at the town beach were finished. Minerva is in the process of welcoming a cell tower to the town and reclassifying the Minerva Dam. Currently, the dam is classified as class C, which means that if it were to break, serious loss and even death could result. “That’s just not the case here in Minerva,” said McSweeney. They plan to reclassify the dam to either a class A or B.

Messinger also acknowledged the aging population, the harsh weather and the lack of convenient services available as things to improve upon. “But it’s all workable,” he said. The Chazen Companies defined four major benchmarks for the town of Newcomb. One is to redevelop their job market, two is to improve the appearance of the town, three is to create infrastructure and lastly to become a tourism destination through marketing and branding. Specifically, Messinger presented creative ideas to attract both businesses and people to the area. He also accepted public comments and ideas, which included establishing an emphasis on the arts and creating a horseback riding trail system. “This is a big picture plan designed to develop sustainability through analysis,” said Messinger. “The people in the town of Newcomb are enthused and have a lot of energy to invest in this project.” Newcomb’s comprehensive plan can be found on their website at

Lottery tickets aren’t for kids

To the News Enterprise: Many parents, grandparents, friends and family members feel that it’s acceptable to buy lottery and scratch off tickets for youth as a gift or a stocking stuffer. When family members buy lottery tickets or gambling related gifts for youth, they are sending the message that gambling is a safe form of recreation and lottery tickets are intended for youth – when in fact, this is not the case. In New York State, it is illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to purchase and/or redeem any form of lottery ticket. This is the law for a reason. The younger a child is introduced to gambling, the more likely they are to develop a gambling addiction.

Why coupon’s fine print may be your friend


ast week, we discussed how to handle confused cashiers who may try to incorrectly limit our coupon usage in one way or another. The key to eliminating most cashier confusion is to familiarize yourself with the store’s coupon policy, which states all of the store’s rules for accepting coupons. And while it’s true that most cashiers are familiar with what kinds and types of coupons the store will accept, there are also times when a cashier may mistakenly inform you that the store cannot take your coupons. In my coupon classes, I’ve taught over 6,000 people to Super-Coupon, and so I’ve heard more than my share of stories of cashier confusion. One common theme has to do with interpreting the fine print on a coupon. If you pick up any manufacturer coupon, either from the newspaper or one printed from the Internet, chances are it contains the wording “Limit one coupon per purchase.” Seems innocent enough, right? But these five little words can often be the source of cashier confusion. To understand why, consider this distinction. Each item we buy is a purchase. Each group of items that we take to the checkout lane and pay for at the same time, as a group, is a transaction. So, when a coupon’s fine print states, “Limit one coupon per purchase,” what it effectively means is “Limit one coupon per item purchased.” (In fact, many coupons now contain this updated wording, which makes the meaning much clearer.) So, if a coupon is limited to “one per purchase,” it simply means that we can use one coupon per item purchased. If I purchase 15 items, I can use 15 coupons – one for each item I’m buying (and I often do!) But cashier confusion frequently arises when a shopper uses several like coupons to buy several like items. For example, if I’m buying two bottles of juice and I have two $1 juice coupons, occasionally a cashier may say, “I don’t

think you can use both of these coupons, because they’re one per purchase.” The easiest response? With a smile, ask, “How many bottles am I purchasing?” If you’re purchasing two, you can use a coupon on each. If you’re purchasing three, you could use three coupons, and so on. In this case, the cashier is confusing the “per purchase” wording with the “per transaction” wording. By Jill Cataldo Coupons that state, “Limit one coupon per transaction” are typically store-issued coupons. This wording is commonly seen on coupons like “$5 off a $50 purchase” or a store’s coupon for a deeply discounted item. Stores use the “one per transaction” wording to limit your purchase in some way. In the case of coupons offering money off your purchase, the store simply doesn’t want you to use multiples of that coupon in the same transaction. Or, they may be offering you a coupon for a special loss leader, like a dozen eggs for 49 cents, but they only want to allow you to purchase one of that item per transaction. Knowing the difference between a purchase and a transaction can help you alleviate one of the most common sources of cashier confusion.

County leaders withdraw sales tax hike plan



By Thom Randall WARRENSBURG — In a reversal of a decision made just several weeks ago, Warren County supervisors voted Friday to back off their campaign to raise the sales tax rate from 7 percent to 8 percent. Also, they approved a 2010 budget that calls for an increase in county property taxes of 6.1 percent — with 2010 tax increases in various towns ranging from 5 percent to 24 percent. The supervisors’ vote came eight days after the public expressed their dismay over the proposed sales tax hike at an informal public hearing, when all but one speaker voiced strong objections to the measure. The vote was to withdraw a request to the state legislature to pass a home rule law enabling the sales tax increase. County Budget Officer Kevin Geraghty, one of several supervisors who changed their vote, said he did so because of the public sentiment against the hike. The vote came after a passionate, testy debate Friday between opponents and supporters of the hike, who said that the county needed the additional $12 million to $16 million in annual revenue to rebuild the county’s depleted financial reserves and decrease county property taxes. Warren County Board of Supervisors Chairman Fred Monroe contended that temporarily increasing sales tax — a discretionary tax which would be shared by tourists — was far preferable than boosting unavoidable property taxes, which he said would be forcing people out of their homes and crimping businesses. He said that foreclosures and late property tax payments had multiplied in the last several years, and a property tax hike was not only an additional burden to citizens, but it would decrease county revenues. “Property tax is killing our county residents, and these tax increases don't make sense,” Monroe said. He predicted that up to $4 million in

county property tax revenue would be in jeopardy in 2010 after the 6.1 percent property tax hike is imposed in January. Most of the support for the sales tax increase over boosted property taxes came from upcounty supervisors, whose constituents would be facing disproportionately high county property tax increases. In Johnsburg, the 2010 county tax hike of 6.1 percent would translate to a 23.4 percent tax increase, where 20 percent of households are now under the poverty level, Johnsburg Supervisor Sterling Goodspeed said. “This is going to be devastating, and people are going to lose their homes,” he said. “We are turning away from an opportunity to control our taxes — We are making a terrible mistake.”

Voting against rescinding the sales tax hike request were Goodspeed, Monroe, Bolton Supervisor Kathleen Simmes, Ralph Bentley of Horicon, Dan Belden of Hague, Red Pitkin of Thurman, Frank Thomas of Stony Creek, Gene Merlino of Lake Luzerne, and Glens Falls supervisors Daniel Girard and Joseph Sheehan. Warrensburg Supervisor Kevin Geraghty voted for the measure. Lake George Supervisor Lou Tessier, who has supported the sales tax hike in the past, was not present at Friday’s meeting due to the death of a relative. An alternative initiative calling for an increase of 0.5 percent in the sales tax rate, supported by Thurman Supervisor Red Pitkin and many other supervisors, failed in a subsequent vote.

Douglas, Politi to lead Essex supervisors Adirondack Council pushes for fewer, taller cell towers By Matt Bosley

ELIZABETHTOWN — Two supervisors’ bids for leadership positions on the Essex County Board of Supervisors will apparently become reality as their competitors have decided to drop out of the race. The term of current board chairwoman Cathy Moses expires Jan. 1, and the board will convene to elect a new leader at the annual organizational meeting on Jan. 4. Essex Supervisor Ron Jackson, currently the vice chairman, would have been next in line for the position, but failed to win re-election for 2010. Two names had emerged as likely candidates for the new board chair: Moriah Supervisor Thomas Scozzafava, a Republican, and Democratic Jay Supervisor Randy Douglas. As of Jan. 1, Republicans will hold a 10 to five edge over Democrats on the 18member board. But Scozzafava withdrew his name from consideration Dec. 8 after failing to gain the support of most of his fellow Republicans. Westport Supervisor Dan Connell was running for vice chair along with Scozzafava. Much of Scozzafava’s sup-

Randy Douglas

Roby Politi

port was reportedly from board Democrats. “I knew that I would probably be a long shot when I decided to seek the seat,” Scozzafava said Dec. 7. “I am not good at biting my tongue, so it may be best if I wasn’t seated in that chair.” In 2002, Scozzafava unsuccessfully challenged Teresa Sayward for the 113th District state Assembly seat, but did however manage to pull the support of several prominent county Republicans. Chair of the county finance committee, Scozzafava has publicly butted heads with Republican County Manager Dan Palmer. He also fervently supported District Attorney Julie Garcia in her failed re-election bid against GOP nominee Kristy Sprague, a divisive issue among Republicans.

According to Republican St. Armand Supervisor Joyce Morency, the vast majority of GOP support has been behind Douglas. “I think it somewhat boils down to the recent election and Tom’s support of Garcia,” Morency said. In his run for chair of the board, Douglas teamed up with Republican North Elba Supervisor Roby Politi, who was elected in 2007 after running as an independent. Politi is the candidate for vice chair. “It’s crucial that party lines work together to reach goals that will benefit Essex County constituents,” said Douglas. Douglas said he and Politi waited until after the count of absentee and military ballots had been finalized to announce their intention to run.

They did so out of respect for Jackson, who lost a close race to challenger Sharon Boisen. Politi, formerly the mayor of Lake Placid, was recently re-elected to his second term as supervisor. He has renewed his call for the sale of the county-owned Horace Nye Nursing Home – a $4 million annual expense. Douglas was recently appointed to the executive committee of the New York State Association of Counties. He is chair of the county transportation sub-committee and was highly involved in the rerouting of the county public transportation system following the closure of the Champlain Bridge. The Douglas family has a long history of holding elected office in Jay. Douglas’ father, Thomas A. Douglas, served as Jay supervisor from 1972-80 and from 19982000. His grandfather, Arthur J. Douglas, served as Jay supervisor from 1966-72. All were Democrats. “Six years ago I was not prepared to be chairman of this board,” said Douglas, “but I am now ready and able to serve the people of Essex County to the best of my ability.” WNBZ reporter Jon Alexander contributed to this report

Johnsburg tax bills expected to be delayed

Lanphear participates in international study

JOHNSBURG — Town of Johnsburg Town Clerk/Tax Collector, William Rawson, reports that due to the lateness of the Warren County Budget being passed that he is not expecting to receive the tax bills and amounts from Warren County earlier than December 31. As a result, the Town of Johnsburg tax bills are not expected to be mailed by Jan. 1, as is normally the case. Due to the work which must be done with the bills prior to mailing; it is anticipated that the tax bills for the Town of Johnsburg will probably not be able to be mailed to the property owners before Jan. 8. If the public has any questions they may contact the Town Clerk/Collector at 251-3011 ext. 28.

By Jonathan Alexander RAY BROOK — The regional green group the Adirondack Council is lobbying the Adirondack Park Agency to require more widespread co-location of cell carrier arrays on projects inside of the Blue Line. In a letter to APA Environmental Program Specialist George “Skip” Outcalt, council Legislative Director Scott Lorey compelled the agency to require cell carriers to share a tower instead of building separate towers on the same parcel. “Companies should be encouraged or mandated to seek colocation when a nearby tower is available,” Lorey writes. “This can be accomplished by re-examining the ‘towers policy’ and fixing some of the obvious flaws that are apparent now that the policy has been practically applied for over seven years.” According to APA spokesman Keith McKeever, since 2008, the APA has approved around 15 new-build cell tower projects in the wake of the deaths of several snowbound motorists on I-87. In contrast, 25 co-locations have been permitted by the agency in the same time period. The agency is currently considering a T-Mobile project in the town of Inlet that would allow a tower to be constructed a stone’s throw away from an already-constructed Verizon Tower. The APA recently approved a cell project in North Hudson that will allow two towers on the same parcel near the Northway. “One suggestion that the Council has made before, is to require that the applicant show its attempts to co-locate on existing structures within a reasonable distance of its site and explain in detail why no option other than a new tower is feasible,” Lorey said. “It appears that telecommunications companies, for the most part, are not sharing space on each others’ towers, as was expected.” Last fall, regional executives from the four major cell phone carriers told agency commissioners that sharing space doesn’t make good business sense as they are, after all, competing entities. They also argued that the use of varying cellular technologies requires differing tower citing. The APA typically strives to keep the elevation of cell towers as low as possible to limit the impact on the park’s aesthetic character. But for the council, taller towers are more desirable than several at the same location. “Even a slightly taller tower will have less environmental impact, that having to construct a second tower,” Lorey said. “Depending on locations, a second tower may require additional tree cutting, road building and utilities to be installed.” APA staff and cell carrier executives have said that in order for co-location to be effective, towers would have to be significantly taller to accommodate multiple cellular arrays. According to cell carrier officials, the average cost of construction of out-park towers is $57,000, while in the park the cost nearly doubles to $104,000.

SATURDAY December 26, 2009

From page 1 is 20 percent; in Bolton, 11.6 percent; in Thurman, 9.7 percent; in Glens Falls, 7 percent; in Horicon, 5 percent; in Stony Creek, 8 percent; in Hague, 11.6 percent, and in Lake Luzerne, 12.7 percent. The budget approval occurred Friday soon after the county Supervisors voted against a proposed temporary sales tax hike from 7 to 8 percent, which would have kept the increase at zero. Voting against the budget were county supervisors Fred Monroe of Chester, Kathleen Simmes of Bolton, Ralph Bentley of Horicon, Red Pitkin of Thurman, Frank Thomas of Stony Creek, Sterling Goodspeed of Johnsburg, Ralph Bentley of Horicon, Dan Belden of Hague, Gene Merlino of Lake Luzerne, and Glens Falls Supervisors Daniel Girard and Joseph Sheehan. Several of the supervisors opposing the budget said they could not support a budget that boosted the burden on property owners while leaving the county facing $8 million in additional debt in January. Many of the supervisors who voted “No” had supported a sales tax increase as a way that tourists could help reduce property taxes and build up depleted county cash reserves.

Most recent budget cuts merely theoretical

Public safety to be compromised? Budget Officer Kevin Geraghty warned that county department heads would be told that they couldn’t come back in mid-2010 for supplementary appropriations or more overtime money. But Monroe, Chairman of the Board of Supervisors, said such a dictate would be next to impossible — that the county has an obligation to provide vital services. Overtime in the Sheriff’s Office and Public Works department would likely be paid regardless of the supervisors’ dictate of a 10 percent reduction, he said. “If a burglar breaks into someone’s house, or we have more snow than we’ve allotted for, our county employees must and will respond,” he said. “If heavy rains wash out a highway like they did with county Rte. 11 in Bolton, it’s a matter of public safety, and we’ll have to pay for it.” Public Works Commissioner William Lamy said that regardless of cuts this year of hundreds of thousands of dollars to his operations — and DPW job cuts of nearly a dozen — the county’s roads will remain as safe as they have in the past. This year, the county highway crews will have one person manning each snow plow, rather than a wingman onboard, as traditional. Other decreases stemmed from a recent demand to department heads to cut an additional 3 percent from their budgets to avoid layoffs — and the executives responded with $385,000 or so in new appropriation cuts. Also, the county supervisors cut their own pay by 5 percent.

In a marathon six-hour session Tuesday, the supervisors cut about $700,000 in appropriations out of the budget and added about $400,000 in revenue. This latter bonus was merely a revision of an earlier projection of revenue from electricity generated at the county-owned trash burn plant. Other last-round "savings" in the 2010 budget were theoretical. No jobs were cut in this last round, and few expenses were actually trimmed except an an across-the-board reduction of 10 percent to the county’s budgeted $1.26 million in overtime. Supervisors including Red Pitkin of Thurman warned Friday that many of the budget cuts may be an illusion, as the county department heads have made many cuts now, but will likely be returning mid-year 2010 to seek extra money shifted to fund their operations when they run out of cash. He also warned about over-optimistic speculation on revenues. "These cuts look good on paper, but I am concerned about the quality of our decisions,” Pitkin said.

Budget reductions earlier this year include hundreds of thousands of dollars slashed from county support to Warren County Cooperative Extension. It was announced Friday that Extension Director James Seeley has volunteered to take a 20 percent pay cut to keep vital programs intact for those of moderate income. The income tax preparation service that Extension offered last year might have to be scrapped, Supervisor Dan Girard said. Seeley's pay concession follows the voluntary pay cut by county Information Technology Director Robert Metthe, who offered to cut his pay voluntarily by 20 percent to save a job of one of his employees. The county’s last round of cuts, ready for approval today, includes eliminating the job of accomplished planner Laura Moore, a resident of Warrensburg. The reduced budget also includes savings generated by the PBA union, representing the county sheriff's deputies delaying the deputies’ 3.5 pay raise for six months. Other unions, including the CSEA, have not cooperated, and supervisors have said privately that such lack of consideration of taxpayers will have repercussions when their contracts expire. A move to sell one of the sheriff's boat patrol boats was scrapped Friday after Queensbury Supervisor William VanNess reported that such an action may force the county to repay the $60,000 purchase cost although the boat is only worth about $10,000 now. Monroe says, noting that Medicaid costs have increased about $1 million annually in recent years, and there's no end in sight. A resolution objecting to the ever-increasing costs was forwarded to the county Legislative Committee. He has also decried the ever-increasing costs shifted from the state to the counties, particularly those prompted by the $3 billion state budget gap. New announcements are made nearly weekly by state leaders of additional costs for mandated programs being shifted to counties, he said. County officials said Friday that January’s tax bills may be mailed a little late because of problems determining the exact impact of salary and expense cuts in the budget.

Orange boys squeak out the win against rival Johnsburg By Lindsay Yandon

Both the boys and girls for the Mountaineers fell short in some league tests this week and the boys also fell to non-league rival Bolton Landing.

End in sight for regular season By Tom Henecker


irst, a little housekeeping: Apologies to Willie Mack, who didn’t get mentioned as tying the best record last week at 14-2. This week for Willie, not so good. Many of you have been having trouble getting through our robot-seeking Web site protection, which prevents you from submitting your picks online. Technical master and fellow picker, Dan Alexander Jr., suggests that you “toss your cookies.” Yes, I said it. Apparently if you delete cookies, you can get enter the code and all will be right with the world. Otherwise, just e-mail your picks. How ‘bout them Giants?! It was so nice to watch a good, old-fashioned beat-down Monday night. It’s just a real shame the Cowgirls got lucky in New Orleans. Raise your hand if you thought the Saints would win once that Dallas kick doinked off the goal post… We’ve got two weeks left in the regular season, which is when we traditionally end our little contest. While Andrew Sponable led the week at 13-3, Matthew Aldous continued his roll with a 12-4 record for a four-game lead over Troy Galusha, who quietly made his way up to second place in the standings. Should make for an exciting finish. Another must-win for the Giants this week, and they’ll get it done. Big Blue needs to win the next two and have either Green Bay or Dallas drop one to get into the playoffs. It’s quite possible the Deadskins take revenge out on the Cowgirls this weekend, but it’s more likely to come down the the big NFC East showdown – Philly at Dallas – in Week 17 for the Cowgirls’ season to end. Sunday’s game of the week, however, will be Baltimore at Pittsburgh. I believe the Ravens will win this one, but I’m picking the Steelers for no apparent reason. Have a safe and happy holiday, make your picks before the first game of the week online at, and GO BIG BLUE!!!

Johnsburg tops Mountaineers, Kayla Williford steps up for sister By Lindsay Yandon

JOHNSBURG — In what was promised to be a competitive game between league rivals Minerva/Newcomb and Johnsburg, the Jaguars handed the Mountaineers a severe 34-15 loss Dec. 16. Several games ago at home, the Mountaineers only lost to the Jaguars by three points. This week, however, they faced a new team fueled to win despite the lose of starting senior point guard Kelsey Williford. She suffered an ankle injury in the first few minutes of a contest against Bolton last Monday. Despite the game’s relative low score, the Jaguars came away from the first huddle with strong defense and a press that baffled the Mountaineers. Johnsburg head coach Frank Dower pulled junior varsity players Kayla Williford and Rachel Dunkley up for the game. Kayla Williford, kept her head on the varsity level and filled the shoes of her sister to lead the team at point guard. She finished the contest with five points. Keri Cleveland and Mikayla Glode did

most of the scoring for Johnsburg and had strong all-around games. Cleveland collected 12 points, seven rebounds and five steals, while Glode had 10 points from down low, eight rebounds and four steals. Deidra Palmatier ’s six points led the Mountaineers and was followed by Charli Egli’s four. Egli collected 14 steals mostly on break aways, but struggled to capitalize on the opportunities. The first half ’s play was quick and both teams hit the locker room with the score at 13-8. Johnsburg, however, returned from half-time and dominated the scoreboard on a 21-7 run. This win puts their record at 3-5 overall. “Our defense was great and our press worked like we planned it to,” Dower said. Kelsey Williford is expected to return to the floor for the next scheduled game, he said.

Pictured at right: Johnsburg’s Cassandra Prouty heads down the court on a breakaway during their match-up against Minerva/Newcomb on Dec. 16. The Mountaineers fell to the Jaguars 34-15.

You can’t eat the antlers I

was a just a young chap barely knee high to a duck when I first was extended the privilege of accompanying a deer hunt with my father and uncles. True to form my uncle Eddie dropped a stunning 10pointer on the second drive and we began the ritualistic trip over the river and through the woods to grandmother ’s house where we hung our deer for aging. Along the way, as I recall, we made a quick stop for some road Pepsi’s and a group of looky-loos wandered

over to admire the slammer rack that peaked over the side of the pickup bed. “Nice deer,” one of them exclaimed, then turned and congratulated my uncle. Ed spun and without skipping a beat said: “Don’t congratulate me, congratulate the deer — he grew em’.” Interestingly, in this age of record-book keeping, antler restrictions, selective harvest and land management depicted on popular television shows, I think some have lost sight of one simple fact: Deer are tasty. Our forefathers hunted not for the trophy rack or bragging rights but rather to put nutritious, high-protein food on the table. Most would roll over in their grave to see Michael Waddell let a 140 class walk by because it wasn’t a

On Dec. 20, 2009 first ice for ice fishing in Newcomb, Christmas came early for the Helms boys (Kalab, Jacab, Kagan) when this 38-inch Northern Pike was caught (with a little help from Dad, John Helms).

My cousin, Lieutenant Dan, poses with a young spike he filled the freezer with this season, lending credence to my theory that it’s not always about the rack. “management buck.” I have a real problem with trophy hunters — I have no qualms saying it. I find it disheartening that some place more value on the trophy than the meat. In my mind, if you aren’t in it for the latter it gives true hunters a bad name. It also is not always what’s best for the herd as a whole. Shooting an animal to put the antlers on the wall is no different than cutting them off in the woods and leaving the meat to rot. Aged traditions of crews butchering their own deer and dividing the meat have in some cases been replaced with dropping the deer at the taxidermist and piling the leather-like meat in the freezer bottom till its gangrene. I remember a recent conversation between a longtime hunting chum and one such hunter who was boasting about letting an 8-pointer walk by because it wasn’t worthy of the wall. “Guess you didn’t need the meat,” he said. Amen to that. Don’t get me wrong — I begrudge no one a trophy set of antlers and have taken tremendous pride in dropping several sets of my own. But that, in my mind, should be the icing on the cake, not what defines the hunt. And no one should be apologetic for filling the freezer — as long as they do it legally and need or enjoy the meat. I was reminded of this the other day when my cousin Danny entered a small spike horn he shot this season in a “monster rack” competition at a popular local radio station. He entered it not because it had a chance of winning, but because he shot it after his young son Hudson spied the small buck and pointed it out to his Dad. It was Hudson’s first time hunting and he is now hooked for life, my cousin said. “Besides,” Danny said, “You don’t eat the antlers ... they just help stir the stew.” Priceless.
