When asked by the of ficer why he was traveling so fast, Owens r eportedly answer ed, “I am just trying to make it home.” According to Magers, the matter was “an isolated incident.” “The Congr essman acknowledges that he was going too fast, has learned his lesson and pledges not to let it happen again,” Magers wrote in a statement to the media. Owens sent his attorney to Colton Town Court on his behalf May 25 with a r equest to dismiss the six points on his driver ’s license as a r esult of the charge.

P L AT T S B U R G H — T h e State University of New York at Plattsbur gh awar ded diplomas to mor e than 900 students during the college’s spring commencement exercises May 21. The morning and afternoon cer emonies wer e opportunities for students like Christine Pawlowicz, a childhood and special education major fr om Goshen, to address the crowd, reflecting on their time spent at the university. The r eceipt of a diploma was something Pawlowicz referred to as “the carr ot that’s be en dangled i n fr ont of our faces for the past several years” and a representation of “everything it has taken to get to this point.” “It represents what classes we’ve taken, the late nights we spent studying and r esearching, and the worse of intellect and art we have produced,” said Pawlowicz, who addressed the morning cer emony. “Let us collect carrots if we come to them, and not spend

Board of education asks state to overturn annual budget vote One machine posted previous year’s ballot

By Jon Hochschartner

BEEKMANTOWN — The Beekmantown Central School District board of education voted unanimously at a special meeting May 23 to ask New York State Education Commissioner John B. King Jr. to overturn the budget vote, accor ding to district

clerk Joanne Menard. At the May 17 election, 383 people (26 per cent) voted on a machine displaying the school budget of the pr evious year, district treasurer Eric Bell said. The 2011-12 budget passed 746 to 730, representing a 16 vote difference. Whereas the curr ent pr oposed budget is $38,721,107, the voting machine in question displayed last year’s budget of $37,458,259, accor ding to Bell. There is, roughly, a $1.26 million difference between the two figures. This led some district residents, in-

Speaker says it’s never too late to go to college By Jeremiah S. P apineau PLATTSBURGH — When Gary Peacock looked across the audience at this year ’s Clinton Community College graduation, it was a place he didn’t imagine he’d be many years ago, let along being there as class valedictorian.

cluding former school boar d pr esident Holly Sims, to call for a revote. “I think it’s absolutely necessary , because taxpayers voted on a number that is not accurate,” Sims said. While she was unsure, she believed such an action would cost thousands of d ollars. S ims s aid t here w ere t oo many people involved in the vote to pick out one as dir ectly r esponsible for the ballot error. “I think they just for got to change it,” she said. Still, she said, while school district

The Morrisonville man addressed the more than 300 graduating students, their friends and families May 20, speaking about his pursuit of a college degr ee nearly 40 years after graduating fr om Chateaugay Central School. Peacock, who graduated with his associate’s degree in humanities and social sciences, recalled how he “criss-crossed the country several times” before his first attempt at attending college in 1973. “I r egistered a t a S onoma S tate U niversity in northern California, and on the way to my first class, I had second thoughts,” said Peacock. “I turned ar ound and walked away from academia for almost 40 years. I just wasn’t ready.” It wasn’t until after 50,000 miles of hitchhiking across North America and Europe, that Pea-

superintendent Scott A. Amo was not directly in charge of running the vote, he was in charge of the school district, and so ultimately it was his responsibility. Additionally, t he M ay 2 3 m eeting was not advertised in a major media outlet, in violation of the law , Sims said.

Even after having traveled far on his own path outside the world of academia, Peacock said he still questioned whether or not he should have attended college. Those questions persisted in his head, until he finally enrolled at Clinton Community College in 2009. Even then, Peacock said he was “fully pr epared to walk away again.” But, he didn’t. The reason? Peacock attributed it to mathematics professor Angela Barnaby, who challenged him and his fellow classmates. “You made me want to come back,” Peacock


allegations of electioneering in school, accor ding to Sims. These included r eports of school employees wearing “Vote Yes” buttons in school, and a teacher who brought roughly 60 students, who were over the age of 18, to the vote. Sims said she had eceived r a campaign flier , fr om the Beekmantown Teacher ’s Association posted at the junior prom, from an upset parent. (Editor’s Note: Superintendent Scott A.

said, addressing Barnaby. He further thanked history pr ofessor Tom Mandeville, who “truly inspired me.” “Everyday after school I would tell her about one of the gr eat historical characters you brought to life,” Peacock said. The ability for anyone considering pursuing a college education even after the “traditional” college age is one everyone has, said Peacock. It’s also an adventure he said worth having. “Criss-crossing the country and exploring Europe are adventures that are challenging and rewarding, but always seems to end rather quickly,” said Peacock. “I have come to r ealize that life long learning is an adventure that does not end. Each day is filled with challenges and rewards.”

PERU — It’s nearly 40 years later than he had originally planned, but Arthur Hart has r eceived his high school diploma. The West Chazy man and North Country native was recently afforded the opportunity to receive his diploma through “Operation Recognition,” a pr ogram thr ough the New York State Division of Veterans Affairs. “I had never hear d of it,” Hart said of the pr ogram, adding he was informed about it r ecently by a counselor with Veterans Affairs. The pr ogram is designed to honor people like Hart, who left their pursuit of a high school education to fight in the Armed Forces. In

Hart’s case, the year was 1973. It was a turbulent time for the nation when many young men were being drafted to fight in the V ietnam War. He was only 17 years old when he decided to voluntarily join the U.S. Navy, a year after his br others Ed and James enlisted. “I had a draft car d, but I wanted to [enlist],” said Hart. Hart soon found himself attending boot camp in Great Lakes, Ill. Upon completion of his training, Hart was shipped to Baltimore, Md., where he joined his brother aboar d the U.S.S. Charleston LKA-113, an amphibious cargo ship based in Norfolk, Va. Though Hart never saw any combat time, he does reSee HART, continued on page 19

Patriot Flight: an important organization for our veterans


or many World War II veterans, visiting the National W orld War I I M emorial i n Washington, D.C. is high on their bucket list. And thanks to an or ganization called Patriot Flight, Inc. — based in New York’s capital region — some northern New York veterans have been able to cross this trip off their list. Opening in 2004, the memorial honors the 16 million U.S. men and women who served in the military , and the roughly 400,000 Americans who died during World War II. It is located between Constitution and Independence Avenues. And that’s a gr eat tidbit to know, for those who have the time and money to travel to our nation’s capital, but many aging World War II vets ar e on fixed incomes and can’t af ford the trip.

mobility, in wheelchairs, and have special health care needs, such as oxygen, that make the trip difficult. Enter Patriot Flight. This volunteer group flies World War II veterans from upstate New York to see the National World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. for free. Inspired by a pr ogram in Springfield, Ohio — Honor Flight Network, Inc. — Patriot Flight began transporting vets to the nation’s capital in 2008, joining mor e than 100 other gr oups throughout the U.S. affiliated with the Honor Flight Network, which was founded in 2005. In New York, ther e are similar groups in Long Island, Rochester and Buf falo. Plus, ther e is another gr oup — Leatherstocking Honor Flight — that flies out ofAlbany. One local veteran — Kenneth Coonrod, of Willsboro — made the trip April 23. Coonrod enlisted in the U.S. Navy in December 1944 and served in the Pacific Theater, in places like Guam and Okinawa, until 1946. “It was far above what I ever expected it to be,” Coonro d said of the memo-

rial and the Patriot Flight trip. No Patriot Flight trips ar e currently scheduled. As funding becomes available through donations, they schedule more tours. When there is a trip, it only takes one day. The 15-hour tour starts at 6 a.m. in Latham. Vets fly a Southwest plane from A lbany International A irport to Baltimore, where they hop on a bus and ride to W ashington, D.C. for the day . After dinner, they r e-trace their steps and make it back to Albany by 9 p.m. Special n eeds, s uch as w heelchairs, can be met.About 30 percent of the veterans who have taken trips so far have required wheelchairs, and the deluxe motorcoaches ar e equipped with wheelchair lifts. World War II veterans who are terminally ill are given special priority. Those who r equire oxygen must make arrangements ahead of time, as oxygen tanks are not allowed on flights. Patriot Flight is an important organization at an important time, and it is one with a limited life span, given the current mission of pr oviding “our r e-

maining World War II veterans the chance to personally view the memorial that was built to recognize their sacrifice to our nation.” We ask people to consider donating to Patriot Flight but not to wait too long. At an average age of 85, mor e than 1,200 W orld War II veterans ar e dying every day. Patriot Flight calls its mission “urgent,” and our time to say thank-you is quickly running out. For some veterans, the National World War II Memorial is the last thing they’d like to see befor e they die. Please, help make their dr eams come true. For applications, donation forms and more information, call Patriot Flight at (518) 459-2857 ext. 331 or visit online at Learn mor e about Honor Flight at This editorial is the collaborative opinion of a board comprised of Thom Randall, Fred Herbst, Lou Varricchio, Keith Lobdell, Jeremiah Papineau, Andy Flynn and John Gereau.

Adirondack Park Agency trying to tip the scales of justice


his just seems plain wrong to me! Fr om a very young age, we’ve been taught to r espect authority. This land of the fr ee we all treasure so dearly was built on the concept of a judicial system that pr ovided equality and fairness and was blind to the rich and powerful and governmental overreach. It’s a simple concept that is known and understood worldwide. Then why is Sandy Lewis being treated so unfairly? After pr oving in court and thr ough appeal that the Lewis Family Farm in Essex was well within its right to constr uct housing for its workers, New York State now seeks to have the final chapter of this case r emoved fr om the r ecord, as though it never took place.

Don’t mess with us! When a child continues to steal and the only punishment is to give the item back to its rightful owner , if the owner can prove it was theirs to begin with, what lesson is learned? So long as you can get away with it, why not take everything you want anytime you want? The lesson learned is simple. Keep doing it until someone puts a stop to it and there is a level of punishment commensurate with the act. Government must be held to the highest standar d possible given its unlimited resources and when proven wrong, r epeatedly, should face some sort of restrictions or censorship. They have no skin in the contest, and with nothing to lose, it only serves to empower them all the mor e. Gov. Andrew Cuomo says he wants to improve ethics at the state government level. This is the perfect time for the Governor to send a clear message that those of us living in the Adirondack Park have rights, too! As citizens, we all owe a great deal

of gratitude to Sandy and Barbara Lewis for standing up to the APA and the State of New York. V ery few among us would have or could have taken the actions they did, and that’s what’s at the r oot of this issue. The APA knows they can have their way , interpret the r ules any way they see fit, and the average citizen has little choice but to cave in to their demands or risk losing everything. It’s time for the APA and the state to admit they wer e wrong and let effects of their actions r emain on the record for all to know that they ar e not invincible. They must learn to deal with the average citizen in a fair , equitable way and not as the big bully they have proven to be time and time again.

Each year, on May 31, W orld Health Or ganization (WHO) celebrates W orld No Tobacco Day to highlight the risk associated with tobacco use and to advocate for policies to r educe tobacco consumption worldwide. According to the Campaign for T obacco Free Kids, almost half of childr en regularly breathe air polluted by tobacco smoke. Over 40 percent of children have at least one smoking parent. In 2004, children accounted for 28 percent of the deaths attributable to second hand smoke. There are more than 4,000 chemicals in cigarettes, of which at least 250 are known to be harmful and more than 50 are known to cause cancer . Each year in NYS, over 25,000 adults die due to smoking r elated diseases. We do not want another generation to suf fer the ef fects of tobacco use. Exposur e to in stor e tobacco marketing is a primary cause of youth smoking. T o protect our kids, we must r educe youth exposure to tobacco marketing. In support of World No Tobacco Day, local youth from the NYS Tobacco Control Program’s Reality Check will host a call to action rally at 3:45 p.m. in Trinity Park, Plattsburgh, NY. The focus will be “We’ve Seen Enough.” Come see what the youth have to say about tobacco marketing. Tobacco use is one of the biggest public health thr eats the world has ever faced. Join us as our youth stand up against the fight for tobacco on May 31, 2011. Jill Rock Peru Dana Isabella Plattsburgh

Annual budgets pass in all Clinton County school districts

By Jeremiah S. Papineau

School budgets thr oughout Clinton County were approved by voters during the annual vote held May 17. The br eakdown for the ‘burgh readership ar ea is as follows:

BEEKMANTOWN The $38,721,107 annual budget proposed for the Beekmantown Central School District was narr owly appr oved by voters 746 to 730.

the ‘burgh

Superintendent Scott A. Amo said given the controversy over r eductions in funding for various departments and employees, he wasn’t surprised the vote was as close as it was. “I think budgeting for many schools in New York state is suspect to the loss of state aid and r evenue,” said Amo. “I was expecting this to be a close vote but I am pleased the vote did pass. As I’ve said before, it presents a balance for quality programming that’s sensitive to the local taxpayers.” Board of education member

Leonard King was re-elected to a five-year term with 954 votes. Michael Hall r eceived one write-in vote. Voters also appr oved a proposition to pur chase one 66-passenger bus and one seven-passenger vehicle by a vote of 219 to 13. The cost of the vehicles is not to exceed $134,000.

PLATTSBURGH The proposed budget for the Plattsburgh City School District — amounting to $38,399,039 — was appr oved 554 to 429. The passing of the budget

was something Superintendent James “Jake” Short called “bittersweet.” “On one side, the community supports a budget with key components and instr uctional programming in mind, which I think is a good message about education in our community and appreciation out ther e for a str ong school,” said Short. “On the other side, in or der to get [the budget appr oved] there were significant decreases and r eductions and some difficult decisions. W e did what we needed to do though, to get business done and take

May 28 - June 3, 2011

care of our students.” “I don’t want people to think this was easy ,” added Short. “We’ll now begin to roll up our sleeves and work our tails of f to make this work.” Clayton Morris was re-elected to a five-year term on the board of education with 566 votes, while David Stone was elected to another five-year term with 704 votes.

PERU The pr oposed $41,586,451 budget for the Per u Central School District was appr oved 589 to 350.

“Peru Central is very grateful for voter appr oval of the 2011-2012 expenditur es plan,” said Superintendent A. Paul Scott. “This month’s voter support, particularly during a challenging economic climate, is very much appr eciated by Peru Central School District.” A five-year term on the board of education went to Brian Post with 261 votes. Post beat out competitors Mark Lukens, Linda Mor gan and Stephen St. Onge, who had 143, 218 and 199 votes, respectively.

Wet weather brings garden diseases May’s Workout of the Month


t seems that our weather is seldom ideal for the garden. Sometimes, it is too hot and dry . And other times, like this spring, the weather is too cool and wet. Cool wet weather brings a whole host of issues in the garden. Many people in the ar ea cannot even get into their gar dens because the soil is so wet or even under water! Cool, wet weather is ideal for the spr ead of gar den diseases. Many funguses thrive in weather conditions similar to what we have been experiencing. Unfortunately, once a leaf or part of a plant is infected ther e is no way to cur e the plant. You can only keep the fungal disease fr om spreading. Therefore, prevention is the best step against fungal diseases in the garden. Fungi are reduced by growing plants in sunny locations with good air circ ulation and by reducing water contact on leaf surfaces. Diseases can be pr evented by r emoving and destr oying affected leaves that fall to the gr ound and by watering at the base rather than over head. Pruning the lower leaves, to pr event soil fr om being able to splash onto the leaves, is another way to pr event fungal disease fr om infecting roses, shrubs, and tomato plants. If disease pr essure is sever e, ther e ar e both

conventional (man-made) and organic (naturally derived) fungicide that can be used. It is important to remember that these products only pr event fungal infection and do not cur e them. Most of the organic products have to be purchased, just like the conventional pr oducts, with one exception. A 10 percent milk solution — 10 parts water to one part milk — has been proven to be an eff ective preventative against powdery mildew. Also r emember that no matter what type of fungicide you use, r ead the label car efully and follow its instructions. Always think about your safety first! Finally, the easiest way to prevent fungal disease in the garden is to purchase disease resistant plants. Many plants ar e naturally r esistant to certain diseases and others have been bre d to be resistant. You can find resistant roses, phlox, tomatoes, peppers, and pumpkins for example. Having a plant that is resistant to fungus is the easiest way to prevent garden diseases! Anne Lenox Barlow is a professional horticulturist who enjoys gardening with her family in Plattsburgh. She also chr onicles her gardening experiences at her blog www She can be r eached at a.lenox.barlow@

New ‘military timeline’ to be hosted this weekend in Beekmantown By Jeremiah S. Papineau

association’s annual timeline event. “There was still a gre at amount of interest in a timeline in the ar ea and people wer e very disappointed with the cancellation,” said Hewson. “In an eff ort to prevent the area from losing a gr eat community activity and learning opportunity, John Dodge and I decided to put together an event that would provide the same opportunities for folks in the area.” The two began collaborating with the Clinton County Historical Association and town of Beekmantown officials to prepare an event to be held at the T own of

BEEKMANTOWN — When the Battle of Plattsburgh Association decided not to host its annual Plattsburgh Military Timeline, Matt Hewson and friend John Dodge decided to do something. The nonprofit organization announced earlier this year that the pending sale of the Old Stone Barracks pr operty led to an understanding the property would no longer be available on which to h ost h istorical r eenactments, resulting in a cancellation of the

Beekmantown Recreation Park on Spellman Road. “Once the idea started rolling people really jumped on boar d,” said Hewson. The planning that has gone into the event has taken several months, said Hewson. The result is the first annual Clinton County Military T imeline — an event he feels will pr ovide attendees with a “smorgasbord of history.” “Visitors will be able to talk with reenactors and view demonstrations from time periods ranging f rom t he Fr ench a nd I ndian War all the way to World War II,” said Hewson.

The event will feature regularly scheduled firing demonstrations that will showcase the pr ogression and innovation ofAmerican martial arms and several smaller demonstrations that will focus on more specific time periods. One such smaller demonstration will be the "Trench Gun Derby,” which will span the time periods of the Spanish American War and W orld War II, demonstrating “the awe-inspiring fir epower of the 1897 T rench Gun,” said Hewson. A W orld W ar II bazooka demonstration and simulated gas attack drill ar e also

among the events in the day expected to be highlights for spectators, he added. “This event is sur e to be a crowd favorite and is something folks should try to see,” Hewson said of the timeline. The free event will be one that Hewson emphasized is all about interaction. “The reenactors will be in their areas r eady to talk with visitors about their time periods, units, and history . The entir e experience for visitors will be an educational one but, above all, a fun one,” said Hewson. The Clinton County Military

Timeline will be held this Memorial Day W eekend — Satur day, May 28, and Sunday , May 29 — opening to the public both days at 9 a.m. Firing demonstrations will be held at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Sunday. The event will end for the day at 5 p.m. Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday. “We hope we will have good weather but if we don't I hope people will come down anyway and have some fun in the rain with history,” said Hewson. “We will be there rain or shine and we hope our visitors will be, too.”

KEESEVILLE — A new museum offers a look into the role that the North Country played in helping slaves escape to freedom. The North Star Under ground Railroad Museum, next to Ausable Chasm, of ficially opened its doors to the public on May 21, with the public getting a first look at the interactive features and displays. “This is beyond our expectations,” North Country Underground Railroad Historical Society Pr esident Dan Papson said. “This is the biggest, little museum in New York State.” “It is a very interactive exhibition,” V ice Pr esident Frank Kinnelly said. “Y ou can watch the movies that we have. And a lot of the exhibits have doors that you can open to learn more.” The museum houses several rooms, which include a look at the women of the Underground Railroad movement, a movie detailing the story of a slave who found freedom in Bloomingdale, and the

role that chur ches played in the Underground Railr oad movement in the area. The museum was funded through several grants which were gained thr ough a collective effort of the historical society and the town of Chesterfield. Papson said that they have also worked closely with Ausable Chasm to bring the museum to er ality. “What is amazing about this is we have a government agency , a private business and a not-for profit agency working together ,” he said. “None of this could have been done with out the help of each other. I think that this is a pioneering situation that other organizations will start to copy because this is a win-win-win situation.” The North Star Under ground Railroad Museum is open on Tuesdays through Sundays from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., and will also be open on Monday holidays, including Memorial Day. The museum will be open thr ough Columbus Day. For more information, call 8345180.

Chief economic developer stops in North Country By Dan Alexander PLATTSBURGH — Gov. Andrew E. Cuomo’s chief economic developer, Ken Adams, paid a visit to Plattsburgh May 17 to stump for the governor’s “People First Campaign.” During his visit last week, Adams noted getting New York State’s budget passed on time this year was a major step in the right direction, setting the state on the path for fiscal responsibility. Adams stressed it’s important for the state to build trust and credibility with the business community for them to have faith to invest in its economy. “Despite those saying the sky would fall, the budget passed closing a $10 billion deficit. The state needed to make the statement that it can’t continue to live beyond its means,” said Adams.

Martinez awaits sentencing for sexually abusing toddler, other charges By Jeremiah S. Papineau

PLATTSBURGH —A Saranac man is awaiting federal and state sentencing on charges related to the sexual abuse and assault. Aaron Martinez, 26, pleaded guilty in Clinton County Court May 16 to three counts of first-degr ee sexual abuse, two counts of pr edatory sexual assault against a child, and o ne c ount of en dangering the welfare of a child. Martinez, r epresented by his defense counsel, Allan Cruikshank, appear ed befor e the Hon. Patrick McGill. During Martinez’s appearance, the People of the State of NewYork were represented by Clinton County Assistant District Attorney Domenica Padula, who motioned to

dismiss 21 counts of the 27 count state indictment. Accor ding to documents fr om the Clinton County District Attorney’s Office, the dismissed counts pertained to portions of the state indictment that alleged vi deotaping of child pornography . Those counts wer e dismissed because the defendant pleaded guilty to the pr oduction of child pornography pursuant to a federal in dictment i n f ederal c ourt e arlier this month. Martinez pleaded guilty as charged to the six remaining counts of the state indictment that charged him with sexual acts against a child. According to Padula, the victim was

Chazy earns top seed in playoffs by ousting Beagles in MVAC’s By Keith Lobdell

Chazy Westport/Keene KEENE V ALLEY — The Chazy Eagles took advantage of the br eaks and eliminated several Westport/Keene Beagles from the basepaths as they claimed a birth in the Mountain and V alley Athletic Confer ence championship game, as well as the top seed in the Section VII/Class D playoffs. The Eagles scored a 7-3 win over the Beagles May 23 in the MV AC Division I v . II playoff game. “I thought that we were very good defensively,” head coach Brian Nor cross said after the game. “Nathan Reynolds (winning pitcher with 5.1 innings, two earned r uns) pitched well and when the game was tight, Ricky Osier (who earned a save with 1.1 innings and three strikeouts) came in and shut the door.” Kyle Bissonette scor ed the first two r uns of the game for the Eagles, scoring on a wild pitch after r eaching on an err or in the first, and then scoring on a thr owing error in the third, which also scored Kaleb Snide. The Eagles opened the game up in the sixth, when John T regan scor ed on a Kyle McCarthy squeeze bunt, Michael R yba scored on a Craig Botten single, and Botten scored on a Bissonette single. “Craig had a big RBI hit for us in the sixth inning,” Norcross said. Osier scored the final r un of the game on a wild pitch in the seventh. As well as scoring ru ns, the Eagles defense

Chazy second baseman Kyle Bissonette tags out Westport/Keene baserunner David Quaglietta during the MVAC Division I v. II playoff game May 23. The Eagles caught Quaglietta twice on steal attempts, two of the five baserunners they eliminated in the game. Photo by Keith Lobdell prevented runs from scoring, as they picked off five Beagle runners off the bases. “Kyle McCarthy made some great throws for us at catcher,” Norcross said. “Our pitchers all hold r unners well and get the ball to the plate quick.” “Every time that we got something going, something would happen and they would make a play ,” W estport/Keene co-head coach Don Markwica said. “W e shot ourselves in the foot. W e didn’t play sound baseball and Chazy is a team that will make you pay for that.” The lone Beagles rally came in the sixth in-

ning, when James Bell, Max V an W ie and Ethan Markwica all scored on scoring plays made by Markwica (single), Alex Fr um (bases loaded walk) and Kevin Russell (bases loaded walk). Osier then came on in re lief for the Eagles, striking out thr ee of the final five batter while giving up a hit to Bell in the seventh. After the game, Norcross said that he felt his team was where they needed to be at the start of sectionals. “We have some depth at pitching that will help us out and I feel we ar e playing some good baseball,” he said.

No cats, no dogs T

he Gr eat North W oods continue to become a little less wild, following another announcement fr om the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. In Mar ch 201 1, the agency r emoved federal protection for the eastern cougar , after extensive r eviews r evealed no evidence of an existing br eeding population in the eastern United States. Researchers believe the Eastern cougar subspecies has been extinct since a trapper in Somerset County , Maine, killed the last confirmed eastern mountain lion in 1938. More r ecently, on May 5, 201 1, the Fish and W ildlife Service proposed a new rule to eliminate federal pr otection for wolves throughout the central and eastern U.S. According to the USFWS pr oposal, the special r egulation for the Eastern Distinct Population Segment (DPS) was based on r esearch indicating the gray wolf is no longer consider ed a native species in the northeast. The agency now r ecognizes the eastern wolf (Canis lycaon) as the only wolf native to the northeast, and the agency

will evaluate it “for possible pr otection under the Act in the near future.” The special regulation for the Eastern Distinct Population Segment (DPS) applies to wolves in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshir e, and Maine. The persecution of wolves by human is the primary reason for the decline of wolves across North America, Humans are the largest single cause of wolf mortality and the only cause that can significantly af fect wolf populations at recovery levels. Studies indicate that wolves r equire remote wild ar eas, with a wide range of prey animals. In the northeast, whitetail deer have historically filled this r ole. However, in a study conducted in Minnesota, r esearchers determined that road density also plays a significant role in the ability of wolves to establish a presence. The study discover ed that wolves require a r oad density that does not exceed .9 miles of highway per square mile of land, the current road density of the Adirondack Park. Road density is not an indicator of potential road kill, rather it is an indication of the ease at which humans can access wolf habitat to harass, trap or shoot them. Research indicates that wolves were primarily extirpated fr om the northeastern United States by 1900. However, there have been a number of

credible observations of wolves r eported in the Northeast thr oughout the 20th century. According to various reports, a single female wolf was killed in western Maine in 1993, and in 1996 a second wolf was trapped and killed in central Maine. Another wolf-like caned was mistaken for a coyote and killed in 1997 in northern Vermont, and in 2001, a coyote hunter shot and killed a male wolf (85 lb.) in Day, NY. In early 2002, an appar ent wolf (64 lb.) was killed by a trapper in southeastern Quebec, less than 20 miles from the New Hampshire border, and in October 2006, a male wolf (91lb.) was shot in southern Quebec, near a location wher e a wolf pack had been established. These incidents, along with similar observations and physical evidence of large, unidentified ‘dogs’ in the northeast over recent years, has led some to believe wolves may actually be dispersing into the northeastern United States from habitat in southern Canada. Many of these unidentified ‘dogs’ have exhibited characteristics consistent with an animal that ranges in size somewhere between the eastern coyote and the gray wolf. Although it r emains uncertain at this time, incr easingly the scientific evidence suggests the historic wolf of the Northeast was more closely related to the r ed wolf than to the gray wolf. According to reports, a recent Geographic Information System analysis that evaluated the potential for wolf dispersal fr om southern Quebec and Ontario into the northeastern United States found that suf ficient suitable wolf habitat is available in theAdiron-

On May 5, 2011, the Fish and Wildlife Service proposed a new rule to eliminate federal protection for wolves throughout the central and eastern U.S. dack Park region of New York and in Maine and northern New Hampshire. Although there remain a number of potential dispersal corridors connecting existing wolf populations north of border with the expansive wolf habitat in Maine, New Hampshir e and New York, ther e ar e also significant physical barriers to such a dispersal, including the St. Lawrence River, several four lane highways, rail lines, and dense human developments that may prohibit the movement of a suf ficient number of wolves fr om Canada into Maine. A study on the feasibility of wolf reintroduction in the Adirondacks, conducted in 1999, revealed the habitat was suitable for sustaining a small population of gray wolves. However, due to the park’s fragmented natur e, and the lack of wild corridors linking occupied wolf areas to the north; it was determined that wolves would not be able to establish a viable, breeding population without

periodic human intervention. The study concluded that ecological conditions dictated against the successful reintroduction of gray wolves. Yet, stories and r eports of wolves persist and continue to circulate. Despite evidence to the contrary , we want to believe them. We want to believe ther e ar e still wolves and cougars out there; we want our woods to remain dangerous and mysterious. In some manner , this belief makes us brave, str ong and daring. If ther e are still wild animals stalking the local woods, our for est forays ar e no longer just a simple walk in the park; they become an adventur e. W e all need the excitement.
