Second terms and three strikes Crown Point sets Memorial Day example I
emorial Day will be observed throughout the North Country, but this weekend belongs to the community of Crown Point. For 145 years it has been marking the occasion, every year since the end of the Civil War, each year a little bigger and better. It may be the longest continuous Memorial Day event in the nation. ThatÍ s the way it should be since Crown Point men played a prominent role in the founding of the Memorial Day holiday. Originally known as Decoration Day, Memorial Day began in the south after the Civil War. Inspired by the bravery displayed A colorguard marches in last year’s Crown Point Memorial Day pain the battle of Gettysburg, the rade. This year’s Memorial Day celebration will be held May 26 and 27. bloodiest fight in American hisPhoto by Nancy Frasier tory with nearly 55,000 causalities, southerners began to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers as a sign of respect and appreciation. The custom quickly spread to the north, where people were just as impressed with the gallantry shown at Gettysburg and throughout the Civil War. New York became the first state to officially recognize Memorial Day in 1873. Crown Point can and should take pride in its own contributions to freedom. Men from Crown Point were at Gettysburg„ a monument stands to their unit there. More than 100 men from Crown Point, an amazing number from a community of its size, formed Company H of the 5th New York Cavalry under the command of John Hammond (A monument to Hammond stands in Crown PointÍ s Forrestdale Cemetery.). The unit distinguished itself throughout the Civil War. Crown Point men also fought in Adirondack Regiment, 118th N.Y., seeing action in many of the Civil WarÍ s bloodiest battles. And those brave souls werenÍ t alone. Crown Point has contributed to each and every American conflict, sometimes making the ultimate sacrifice. This year’s Memorial Day celebration will be held May 26 and 27. Crown Point’s festivities will include an ecumenical church service, a parade, fireworks, amusement rides, entertainment and vendors. But itÍ s important to note the community understands the significance of Memorial Day. Each year’s observance is built around the town’s traditional ñ solemn cemetery tour.î The tour includes stops at each of the communityÍ s cemeteries, where Boy Scouts present the colors, ñ Tapsî is played, the school chorus sings and a speaker notes the importance of the place and people buried there. The tour concludes at the Veterans Monument in the town park at noon. This year’s Memorial Day in Crown Point carries added significance. Crown Point is celebrating the 225th year of its founding. Congratulations to Crown Point for 225 years of history and for 145 years of reminding us of the true meaning of Memorial Day. „ Denton Editorial Board

Baby bottle syndrome To the Times of Ti: As a dental hygienist who has worked in general practice for over 30 years, I sometimes take for granted the fact that dental hygiene education is always provided for patients at their regular checkups. In the past year, I have seen many young mothers as patients who become very upset to learn that their now 1 or 2 year old children have front teeth that are decayed and sometimes need to be removed. They are further dismayed to learn that this condition could have easily been prevented by not giving milk bottles at bedtime. Milk, though a great source of protein, is also a source of lactose, a sugar. When the baby sleeps with the milk in its mouth all night, the sugar acts to create decay as it pools around babyÍ s front teeth. We call this Baby Bottle Syndrome. IÍ ve been very surprised to learn that these young mothers were not warned of this condition by their pediatricians. Further, babies should not go to sleep with any sweetened liquid, including juice. A little prevention soon saves a lot of decay later. Debbie DeStefano Ticonderoga
The (Ticonderoga) town board was criticized at their May meeting for following something that our forefathers fought and died for, namely democracy! Government is to be established ñ by the people and for the people.î Has anyone ever heard the quote ñ by the planning board for the planning boardî or ñ by the APA and for the APAî ? Somewhere, I must have missed that in my American government class! Has anyone stopped to realize all the rights that have already been taken away from the people that bought their land with their hard earned money? Add to that, these people have paid taxes on those properties for years. Now, some of our planning board members are suggesting our town board backtrack on their commitment to the people and revisit a recently rejected more restrictive layer of regulations. What is wrong with someone having a small business, as long as they do not infringe on their neighbors? It seems that our planning board members are advocating a form of dictatorship by asking our town board to ignore the people! Please leave the people with what little landowner rights they have left! I believe we should hold the town board in the highest regards for allowing democracy to prevail the way that our nationÍ s forefathers intended. The people have spoken and there is absolutely no reason to revisit this dead issue! Some of the planning board members called the people that came to the last board meeting a mob! Many of those people will take issue with this reference. These residents voiced their opinion on the proposed zoning regulations and had every right to do so. No one was threatened, called names or bullied. Each person waited their scheduled turn to speak, with very few interruptions. There was some spontaneous applause which is normal. Thank you Ticonderoga town board for allowing democracy to work, listening to the people and rejecting the proposed zoning plan! Fred G. Hunsdon, Sr. Ticonderoga
FD to mark Memorial Day To the Times of Ti: As is usual the Hague Fire Department will make a big presence in the annual Hague Memorial Weekend celebration by participating in the parade and memorial services to follow at the town park and this followed by our usual chicken barbecue at our pavilion off Rte. 8. We will also aid in providing a safe environment for the community through the weekend. In April we held an open house to celebrate National Fire Safety Week, and if you didnÍ t make it you missed a free car wash, free massage and a free lunch. We introduced a new member S.J. Santaniello in April and he already has completed his emergency vehicle operation course. We do still continue to look to recruit new members, especially as drivers. Our fire/rescue boat is now in the water and ready for duty. We continue to request that all residences have their house numbers plainly displayed so that they can be seen from both directions. Have a safe start to the summer season. Joe McCranels Information Ofﬁcer Hague Volunteer Fire Department
Leave firewood at home To the Times of Ti: The Emerald Ash Borer is spreading vigorously and it is getting closer to Vermont. We want to save the ash trees because they are useful in many ways. First of all, the ash tree was one of the first trees in Vermont. As a matter of fact, the Abenaki Indian tribe believed they were created from the ash tree and people continue to make ash baskets today. Next ash trees are a good source of lumber, provide food and habitat for animals, make forests diverse, and they will live long, even through floods. The Emerald Ash Borer usually travels by firewood. This insect, which is small and emerald green makes a D-shaped hole in ash trees. Please keep your eye out for a D-shaped hole in ash trees. If you suspect an Emerald Ash Borer, please contact 1-866322-4512 or for more information check: www.emeraldashborer. info. It only takes one person to bring the Emerald Ash Borer to Vermont so please do not bring firewood to our state! Issy Hiller, Ava Fitts Woodstock, Vt.

This year there were over 75 projects completed through-out Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties with volunteers logging over 1350 hours in one day. The communitiesÍ willingness to get involved and to assist with these projects was instrumental to the overall success. It is the opportunity to work with community minded people like all the volunteers that makes our work at the United Way so enjoyable.

he Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce recently held a Business Roundtable with Chief Mark Johns from the Ticonderoga Police Department. While it was a small group I truly feel that the relationship between the chamber, the business community and the Ticonderoga Police Department is being strengthened. Matt Courtright Businesses and comTi Chamber Director munity members need to feel comfortable communicating openly with the police department on a regular basis. Chief Johns shared that this will allow the police department to serve Ticonderoga more effectively. The business roundtable was an opportunity for Ticonderoga businesses and organizations to meet with Chief Mark Johns. Participants were able to discuss concerns, issues, ideas and positive initiatives we can work together on. The business community is also encouraged to work directly together and share information. The business community should discuss common issues and concerns and share them with the chamber and the police department on a regular basis. We are looking at hosting a yearly roundtable with the police department to encourage and promote a positive relationship and ongoing communication between the business community and the Ticonderoga Police Department. Discussions were held on vandalism, theft, drug and substance abuse as well as other key areas of concerns. Chief Johns shared with us the proactive initiatives they are working on including cameras that have been placed in downtown Ticonderoga and plans to add additional. The Ticonderoga Police Department is also working closely with Ticonderoga schools on emergency plans and the Essex County Drug Task Force. The police department and Chief Johns are also looking at a variety of new initiatives to better serve the Ticonderoga area. Something I learned that can truly be beneficial to both businesses and residents within the community is the Safe Home/Business Submission. Business owners and residents can call the police department or fill out an online form on their website www.ticonderogapolice.org. This will inform the department that you will be out of town, the length of time you will be gone and the contact information to reach you. Lists of these submissions are kept at the police department so only the officers can view them. This will allow them to monitor these locations more closely when time allows and in the event of an emergency the police will be able to contact you directly. One of the issues Chief Johns shared is the lack of follow up from the department to complaints and concerns. Johns shared that this is an area he and his officers are working to improve to better serve the business community, residents and the town as a whole. I asked Chief Johns if there were tips to assist in keeping your business or home safe. I wanted to share a few of them with you. A full list of crime prevention tips is available at the Chamber office or from the Police Department. /LJ KWLWXS NHHS DOODUHDVXVHG E\ SDW URQVZ HOOOLJ KW ed to deter criminal activity. Keep your front windows and entrance ways lights on at night. Direct lighting on focused or vulnerable areas if possible. Not only will this assist in keeping your business or home safe but will create a welcoming atmosphere for visitors and community members when traveling through the area. 2. Greet people who enter your business. Personal contact can deter crimes and provide good customer service. Encourage employees to greet customers as they enter. One phrase shoplifters hate to hear and customers love to hear is ñ How can I help you?î 3. Share crime prevention tips with patrons. Post them in your store as well. Share concerns with fellow business community members and work together. 4. Develop a store policy and provide training for shoplifting incidents. 5. Use the three concepts of crime prevention through environmental design to deter criminalsÍ interest. These are natural surveillance, natural access control and territorial reinforcement. Deter vandalism and show pride in your community. Keep bushes and shrubs trimmed so that you can easily see trouble and use thorny plants and vines in certain areas. Look for dates and details to be announced on upcoming roundtables, seminars, ribbon cuttings/grand opening celebrations, events and much more.

Belva Blood looks forward to future By Fred Herbst
firstname.lastname@example.org TICONDEROGA Belva Blood will celebrate her 90th birthday May 31, but the Ticonderoga woman isnÍ t about to concede to age. ñ The best thing about turning 90 is that IÍ m still able to do pretty much everything,î Belva said. ñ I mow my own lawn, drive. I can even run up and down stairs.î She also enjoys baking pies and donuts. She spends a lot of time going to church and helping there. She recently started bowling with a church group. Belva is the fifth of six children. Her four older brothers are deceased, but her younger sister Myrtle „ age 87 „ is alive. Her husband, Dan, died at age 62. Belva has three children „ Bonnie, Bill and Betsy „ and eight grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. Other than childbirth, Belva has never been in a hospital and boasts of perfect health. ñ The worst thing is wondering how many more decades can you go on, but thereÍ s nothing really bad about living so long,î she said. “Sometimes I forget names, but I’ll remember them five minutes later. ThatÍ s more to do with having so many memories; I’m filled up with memories.”

Her future plans are to keep living each day and continuing the things she loves. Belva worked 35 seasons at Fort Ticonderoga, working until she was 87 years old. She had several different jobs at the fort, one of them cooking for Mr. & Mrs. Pell at the pavilion. ñ They were really nice people,î Belva recalled. Belva grew up in Hartford, N.Y., and Orwell, Vt. She eventually attended Ticonderoga High School while living in Orwell, rowing a boat across Lake Champlain to get to and from classes. She met her husband, Dan Blood, in Ticonderoga. They married during World War II, which started while she was finishing school. Bonnie was born during the war while Dan was in the military. When he got out of the service he became a mason and the family settled in Ticonderoga. In 1947 they bought the house where Belva still lives to this day. Pictured at right: Belva Blood will celebrate her 90th birthday May 31, but the Ticonderoga woman isn’t about to concede to age.

In acknowledgement and deep appreciation for all the staff of the Moses Ludington Adult Care and Heritage Commons Residential Healthcare Facilities. The families of Dorothy A. Hess want to publicly express the excellent care that was shown to my Mother during her six month stay at the Adult Care Facility. Under the direction of Maria and her staff, Mother, not only was loved, but had a wonderful time and was able to meet new friends. The high light of her stay was to enjoy her 96th Birthday and her daily favorite desert, Chocolate Ice Cream.

TICONDEROGA „ The former Mountain Time Furniture has splintered into a pair of new ventures in Ticonderoga. The furniture store and auction house, with locations in Ticonderoga and Port Henry, has undergone major changes. The result is the closing of the Port Henry auction and two new stores in Ticonderoga „ GraceÍ s Mattress Kingdom and Mountain Time ñ The PeopleÍ s Place.î ñ We want to be the anchors of downtown Ticonderoga,î said Rick Harker, who owns and operates the businesses with his wife, Michelle. ñ The biggest advantage of what weÍ re doing is that we have diversified and now offer many more items and activities to attract people. We want people to visit us and then go to Two Brothers (Meat Market), GeorgeÍ s Adirondack Furniture, the Burleigh Luncheonette and other businesses downtown.î Harker said 75 percent of his business involved mattresses, box springs and beds. So he decided to open GraceÍ s Mattress Kingdom at 89 Montcalm St. ItÍ s open Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. It can be reached at 585-6089. The store is named for the coupleÍ s daughter, Grace, age 8, who they maintain is the queen of the family. ñ We decided it was time to put our daughter to work as the youngest business owner in the Adirondacks,î Harker said. The Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce will host a ribbon cutting on Monday, June 3, at 10 a.m. at GraceÍ s Mattress Kingdom as part of its grand opening celebration. The ribbon cutting will be followed by a reception with light refreshments. The grand opening celebration will Be June 3-8. ñ We invite and encourage you to join the chamber, the town of Ticonderoga as well as other area organizations and community members as we celebrate with and support GraceÍ s Mattress Kingdom,î said Matthew Courtright, hamber executive director. ñ Rick and Michelle Harker are and have been dedicated business owners in the Ticonderoga area. We hope you will join them and the chamber at the ribbon cutting. Please show your support of a family who truly cares about Ticonderoga.î
Grace has set prices so low, the store may be forced out of business, her father joked. Mountain Time ñ The PeopleÍ s Placeî is located at 105 Montcalm St., the same location as the former furniture store. It offers used furniture and can order new furniture through catalogues for customers. It also purchases used furniture. The store is open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Saturday and can be reached at 585-6795. The merchandise at both stores is Americanmade and carries full warranties, Harker pointed out. Mountain Time ñ The PeopleÍ s Placeî is much more than a furniture store, though. It is now an auction house, handling consignment and estate auctions. Its first auction attracted 120 people. The storefront also maintains a table of free items. ñ We thought that would be fun,î Harker said of the free table. ñ Hopefully it attracts some people and they find something they like — like David Cassidy albums from four decades ago. And thereÍ s more. Mountain Time ñ The PeopleÍ s Placeî is also home to the Ticonderoga Assembly of God Church food distribution program. People in need are welcome to stop by the store for a free bag of groceries. ñ Anytime the store is open people can stop and get free groceries,î Harker said. ñ People can get one bag a week.

Ticonderoga group tours Grand Canyon Students, adults make western trek By Fred Herbst
email@example.com TICONDEROGA „ A group of Ticonderoga students and adults made a trip through the western U.S. during the schoolÍ s April break. While it was a vacation, there was little time to rest. ñ It was an adventure we will not soon forget,î said Maria Bagneschi, who led 26 people on the educational tour of southern California, Nevada and Arizona. The trek began with a Los Angeles tour, included the Hollywood Bowl, Madam TussaudÍ s Wax Museum, the Hollywood Walk of Fame and GraumanÍ s Chinese Theater, the Hollywood Sign and the Griffith Observatory. Easter Sunday was spent at Universal Studios. ñ Everyone loved the studio tour, the Transformers 3D ride and the Jurassic Park ride,î Bagneschi said. The Ticonderoga crew then went to Las Vegas, where they saw the Blue Man Group, before taking a river float trip from the base of the Hoover Dam down the Colorado River. They visited the Lowell Observatory and spent a full day at Grand Canyon National Park. There the group walked between four and seven miles along the south rim. The trip concluded with a stop to see the red rocks of Sedona, Ariz., en route to the final destination of Phoenix. Making the trip with Bagneschi were Michaela Baker, David Bevins, Jennee Darragh, Kaitlin Diskin, Mike Diskin, Naomi Forkas, Michael Graney, Jaelyn Granger, Jay Hebert, Julie Hebert, Dalton Huestis, Haley Kuhl, Lexi Moore, Eric Nielsen, Katie Palandrani, Tiffani Purkey, Dale Quesnel, Rachel Scuderi, Skyler Torrey, Ashley Trudeau, Nicole Trudeau, Shelby Turner, Michael Watts, Jesse Wilson and Josie Worley. The cost of the trip was paid by the travelers, who held a number of fund raising events. ñ The group appreciates the support they received from the community for all of their fund raisers, including the car wash, softball tournament, bottle drive, candle sale, wreath sale and spaghetti dinner,î Bagneschi said. ñ This trip would not have been possible without the support.î Bagneschi leads a Ticonderoga group on an excursion every other year. Past trips have taken students and adults to England, Italy and China.

Boston runners invited to Schroon By Fred Herbst
email@example.com SCHROON LAKE „ Organizers of the 17th annual Adirondack Distance Festival are reaching out to runners affected by the Boston Marathon bombing this spring. They are offering free entry into the Adirondack Marathon this fall for 50 runners who were prevented from finishing the Boston race. ñ While our hearts are with Boston and all of those who were impacted, in acknowledgement of all runners everywhere who feel confused, violated and betrayed by the recent Boston Marathon bombings, the Adirondack Marathon is offering 50 Boston marathoners who were prevented from finishing their race, free entry into this year’s Adirondack Marathon,” race officials said in a prepared statement. The Adirondack Marathon will take place on Sunday, Sept. 22 in Schroon Lake. ñ If you qualify or know someone who does, visit www.adirondackmarathon.org/boston to register,î the statement said. ñ Be prepared to enter your Boston bib number as well as the usual entry form information. Winners will be chosen by a lottery held on or about June 10. ñ While this in no way compensates for what happened in Boston, it is hoped that by participating in this friendliest of marathons, Boston entrants will have the opportunity to receive some manner of closure.î Two terrorist bombs exploded near the finish line of the 117th Boston Marathon April 15, killing three people and injuring more than 200. More than 5,600 of the 27,000 runners in the race were unable to finish because of the bombings. The Adirondack Distance Festival is nearing capacity in two events. The Adirondack Distance Festival includes a full marathon, a marathon relay, a half marathon, 10-kilometer race, 5-kilometer race and childrenÍ s race. The 2013 distance Festival will be Sept. 21-22. The marathon, marathon relay and half marathon will be contested Sunday, Sept. 22, with the other events Saturday, Sept. 21. The half marathon and marathon are nearing their limit, according to Bob Singley of the event committee. He believes the interest in the two races is the result of attention in a national running publication. Readers of ñ Competitor.comî have named the half marathon along Schroon Lake as the best in the Northeast. The marathon will again offer ñ Pace Bears,î who will lead
runners at their goal pace. “Pace Bear” groups will cross the finish line beginning at 3:30 and in 15 minute increments afterward through a 5:30 pace. The marathon course is a Boston qualifier, USATF certified course and is billed as “probably the most beautiful 26 miles and 385 yards you will ever run.î To register or for more information visit www.adirondackmarathon.org. More than 900 runners took part in the 2012 Adirondack Distance Festival Sept. 23. Stanley Larkin of Saint-basile-le-grand, Quebec, won the menÍ s marathon in 2 hours, 53 minutes, 24 seconds, while Meg Ray of New York City claimed the womenÍ s title in 3:18:54. In the handcycle race, Jeremy Shortsleeve of Jericho, Vt., won the race in 1:48:44. The marathon, 26 miles, 385 yards, circumnavigates Schroon Lake over challenging forest roads with lakeside views until it finishes back at the Schroon town beach. It had 239 finishers. The marathoners had company over the second half of the course as 511 half marathoners toed the starting line in Adirondack and raced to the finish in Schroon Lake 13.1 miles later. Michael Brady of Brooklyn won the menÍ s half marathon in 1:14:22. Melanie Staley of Saratoga Springs won the womenÍ s title in 1:27:00. There were also marathon relays „ one for two-person teams and another for four-person teams. The team of Ehntholt-Paquette won the two-person relay in 2:55:20. The team of Toelstedt, White, Cote and Cresci won the four-person relay in 3:12:45.

Lake Champlain Bridge recognized Local coaliton pleased with honor By Fred Herbst
email@example.com CROWN POINT „ The Lake Champlain Bridge has received national recognition. The American Council of Engineering Companies has presented HNTB Corp., the firm that designed the span, with its Grand Award. HNTB also was recognized by ACEC New York during its 46th annual Engineering Excellence Award Gala, receiving a Diamond Award for the Lake Champlain Bridge replacement project in the transportation category. Both the national and regional awards programs recognize engineering firms for projects that demonstrate a high degree of achievement, value and ingenuity. The Lake Champlain Bridge Coalition, a local grassroots group of business owners, concerned citizens and civic leaders from New York and Vermont focused on restoring travel and commerce along the Lake Champlain Bridge corridor, welcomed news of the awards.
ñ WeÍ re very pleased,î said Chris Stoddard of the coalition. ñ The awards bring greater attention to the bridge and the region. ThatÍ s always our goal.î The new bridge replaced the old Lake Champlain Bridge, which served the region eight decades. That span was immediately closed Oct. 16, 2009, when state transportation officials, without warning, declared it unsafe. The bridge served about 3,000 vehicles a day, meaning people who used the bridge daily to reach their jobs, health care facilities, grocery stores and other necessities were forced to take detours lasting up to four hours. The closing led to the closure of businesses on both sides of the lake and crippled tourism. A temporary ferry service was installed to link Crown Point and Addison, Vt. The bridge was demolished in December 2009 and construction started on a new bridge in June 2010. The new bridge opened Nov. 7, 2011. The new Network Tied Arch Bridge is a steel structure with an arch along the center span. The bridge’s design makes it significantly safer than the previous structure and will ensure at least a 75-year service life. Key bridge components are designed to be easily replaceable to reduce maintenance costs. Travel lanes are 11 feet wide, with five-foot shoulders that help accommodate larger trucks and farm vehicles, as well as provide ample room for bicyclists. Sidewalks are featured on both sides of the bridge.

Crown Point teacher leads Costa Rican tour Group to visit Europe in 2014 By Fred Herbst
firstname.lastname@example.org CROWN POINT „ A Crown Point teacher recently led a group of local students and adults on a tour of Costa Rica. Jayna Andersen led the nine-day Education First adventure. ñ I am so glad I took this trip,î Andersen said. ñ It was an experience of a lifetime and I am so glad I got to share with the people I did. I will go back to Costa Rica soon and anyone who is considering it shouldnÍ t hesitate to go. You will not regret it.î Making the trek with Andersen were Crown Point students Mara Vradenburg, Jaice Spring, Heather Ryan, Abigail Carpenter and Michael Enman; Moriah student Matt Rice; and adults Mary Ann Carpenter, JoAnn Gibbs and Ronnie Ryan. The trip began in the capital of San Jose leading to a visit of the Poas Volcano National Park. The following days included kayaking, hiking to La Fortuna Waterfall, horseback riding, zip lining, a hike through a cloud forest and planting trees. ñ The highlight for a lot of the travelers was a boat tour on the Tarcoles River in Carara National Park, which is the most densely populated river of crocodiles in the world,î Andersen said. ñ The tour guide got out of the boat and fed crocodiles just a few feet away from the boat. “On our way to the Pacific Coast we stopped to visit a local school,î she added. ñ The students at the school performed traditional dances for us and then we spent time playing soccer and touring their school. All our travelers loved this experience and most wanted to stay longer at the school. It was so nice for them to be able to interact with students from another culture even though there was a language barrier between them.î “The two days we spent on the Pacific Coast were a scorching 98 degrees but it was absolutely gorgeous and a true definition of paradise,î Andersen said. ñ We spent a whole day at Manuel Antonio National Park which is a protected beach. We had close interactions with lizards, monkeys and raccoons, who made off

showed interest in the activities we had planned and expressed concern for our opinions of their beautiful country.î Andersen is already planning her next adventure, a trip to Germany, Italy, Austria and Switzerland in 2014.

The one that got away...
Get the net...what net?
Hooking a fish is not the most difficult element of the angling equation. It is a task that most anyone can master. Landing a fish is a bit tougher. Netting a fish, now that part can be an art. Netting a fish can also be a very difficult task, especially without a net. “Don’t tell me you forget the net!”, my friend proclaimed as I furiously began to fumble through my pack. “Yeah, I did!”, I admitted as I labored to bring a big brook trout to the surface. I had been fighting with it for about five minutes, and I still hadn’t been able to get it to the surface. ñ What are you going to do?î , he asked. “Well, it’s too big to fit in my hat, and I can’t shoot it; so IÍ ll have to hand-land it.î Five hard fought minutes passed before I got a look at it, and it was huge.! It was a large, slab-sided brook and I was struggling to get it near the boat. Every time I got it close, it would dive for the depths and my drag would scream. My line was just a 4-pound test monofiliment, and Joe Hackett shows off the fat brookie he the trout appeared to be every ounce of that and maybe hand-landed. Below, Joe’s buddy John attempts to land an even bigger fish by hand. more. My arm tired from the fight, and I was forced to trade hands several times. Finally, the bruiser was slowing down and I got it to the surface. With the first look, my adrenaline kicked in and I worked hard to bring it alongside the boat. After a few more runs, it bellied up and I was able to gently grasp it by the gill plate, and toss it in the boat. My friend was laughing so hard the entire boat was shaking, or maybe it was just the rush of adrenaline after seeing the size of the fish I had just caught. Either way, I was happy, I had a meal to take home as in return for the long, hard portage, the swarms of blackflies, the muddy put-ins and all those long, steep hills. ItÍ s surprising how much pain can be forgotten in the brief euphoric moments that a trout is in hand. We laughed and joked about the catch, and as soon as we were rigged, my friend tossed a line over the side. Almost instantly, he was into another giant brookie. It took line off his reel in strong diving runs, and he fought back. He battled it, up and out of the water, down and all around. I spun the boat around several times to keep the fish away. My friend handled it well, and after a long, seesaw battle, he finally brought the brookie alongside the boat, By this time, we had attracted an audience and another boater offered a net. We looked at each other, and the net was refused. He had to hand land the bruiser. Gently, he cupped the big fish in his hands and tried to lift it in the boat. It was out of the water and almost in the boat when he dropped it back in the water. The fish sounded, stripping line off the reel in a steady ï zzz-zzzz,Í but the line held. Less than a minute later (which is an eternity in an anxious anglerÍ s mind) the big boy was again back on the surface, and I quickly swung the boat around to bring the fish up along broadside. Again, he brought the fish alongside the boat, and with his rod held high, he scooped it into the boat, launching it like a center hiking a football. The big brookie landed on top of our packs, which were nearly an equal distance from both of us. And as we each reached to grab it, the big fish slapped hard on the pack and launched itself over the side. My friend looked aimlessly at the water, and in the boat, his rod still in hand and a bewildered look in his eyes. We had a good laugh, and after a few more attempts we decided to pack out and head for home. Our fish story was complete, but a long journey lay ahead. And best of all, we had the photos to prove it.

isms. Organic matter also has a high cation exchange capacity (CEC). The cation exchange By Rich Redman capacity is what holds the nutrients to organic matter and soil particles so they can be used by the plants. Cations are positively charged and are the base elements like calcium, magnesium and potassium. When cations are deficient in soils, they become acidic. The pH (potential hydrogen) of a soil is the measure of acidity or alkalinity. A pH of 7 is neutral, below 7 is acidic or low in cations and above 7 is alkaline. Nutrients become more available to plants when the pH is around 6.3 to 6.8. That doesn’t mean you need to have your soil in that pH range. You need to know what the plants you want to grow prefer. Blueberries prefer a more acid soil and alfalfa likes a higher pH. Limestone is added to raise the pH. Limestone is composed of calcium; a cation. ThatÍ s why dairy farmers who grow alfalfa have the lime trucks spreading the white dust every once in a while. The white dust is ground up limestone rock, which is fine in texture so it reacts quickly. Limestone is high in calcium adding cations to the soil, so the pH is raised to meet the plant requirements. Anions are the negatively charged nutrients like nitrogen. They can be easily lost to the atmosphere or to leaching. Most of these elements come from the decomposition of organic material by soil microbes and are released in acidic solutions with water. Chemical fertilizer such as ammonium nitrate, or decaying grasses and clovers, release nitrogen to the soil for plant roots to take up in solution. So if you want to improve your garden you need to make sure you have the right pH and soil nutrients. The best way to find out what is in your soil and what is needed for your plants, is to get a soil test. Drainage and aeration are also important to growing plants. Too much water saturates the soil and doesnÍ t let oxygen in to break down organic matter to release nutrients. Too much natural drainage like gravel soils would have and plants may need irrigation during droughty periods. For small gardens drainage is usually not an issue, but for large farms, saturated soils can reduce crop production by tons per acre. Large commercial farm operations get the nutrients they need from commercial fertilizers, plowed down sod and animal manures. If you are striving for an organic approach, plowed down grasses and clovers add organic matter and allow the slow release of nutrients during the decomposition process. Compost is an excellent source of nutrients for organic production of vegetable and fruit crops. Animal manures and vegetative waste that are composted provide a slow release of nutrients to your plants and provide tilth. I must express a word of caution, about using fresh manure. When fresh manure is added to a garden it may cause a temporary loss of nitrogen. The soil microbes use the nitrogen for their growth. As they die off the nitrogen is released back to the soil. Fresh manure can also draw insects, so compost it first to help stabilize the nutrients and to kill off weed seeds. Cover crops are used by both commercial farmers and organic farms. Cover crops such as winter rye and wheat are planted while a crop is growing by aerial means or after a crop is harvested in the fall. The plants are allowed to grow throughout the fall until dormancy from winter. In spring growth begins again, and the soil nutrients are taken up by the roots of the growing plant, saving them from leaching away. The rye or wheat is then plowed or roto-tilled into the soil and allowed to start the decomposition process again. The nutrients are recycled in the soil by plant to soil and back to another plant. If you have ever walked a plowed field of clay and had those sticky clays cling to your boots making them heavy and hard to walk, you are what were called in the depression years, a clod hopper! So to all you clod hoppers out there who want to improve your garden: first, make sure drainage and aeration are good, get a soil test, adjust the pH for your crops, and then add fertilizer and organic matter. From one clod hopper to another, you now get to enjoy the independence of growing your own crops for food, just like the professional farmers do. Good eating to all!
nyone who has ever spent time on the water has heard the story about the big one that got away. And most anyone who spends much time fishing, has told a tale or two, sometime honestly, and surely a few that werenÍ t. In all of my years, watching the action from the tail end of the boat; IÍ ve witnessed plenty of odd scenes. I’ve watched fish break fishing lines, and pop the hooks off a lure. I’ve seen two fish landed on a single lure use, with one hanging on each of the treble hook. On several occasions, I’ve also seen a larger fish caught while reeling in a smaller fish. It happens more often than youÍ d think, especially with pike and largemouth bass. IÍ ve had salmon that were hooked leap clear out of the water, and land in the boat, and I had one fellow who jumped out of the boat, when there was a 32 inch pike thrashing around on the floor in front of him. Over the course of time, IÍ ve gotten to be pretty good with a landing net. IÍ ve scooped up many fishing, as well as small dogs, a few kids and at least a thousand or so fish. I also used a really long handled net to dredge the lake bottom after the waves had washed all our beer out to sea. And it actually worked! Whenever possible, I’ve attempted to let fish loose without using a net, and it’s usually an easy process, especially when using barbless hooks. I simply hold onto the shaft of the hook and turn it upside down, and usually the fish will fall right off. Occasionally, IÍ ll use a pair of forceps, or needle nose pliers to remove a hook. ItÍ s rarely a problem to extract a hook from bass, especially largemouth. IÍ ve caught bass that were large enough to allow me to stick my fist in their maw. I’ve also taken tiny little brookie fingerlings that were so delicate I dared not to touch them. I’d simply shake them off the barbless hook.

stopped to get my morning cup of hot black coffee. I always get coffee before I start out on a mission, whether itÍ s to get hay, hauling gravel for my woods road, or going fishing. In my early years, I was a professional, over the road, tractor-trailer driver out of western New York. Black coffee and cigarettes were a driver’s road companions! I gave up the butts. But, ñ they will have to pry my coffee cup from my cold dead hands if they want it.” I won’t give that up! While getting my brew, a friend asked: ñ When are you going to write about helping me get my garden to grow?î The thought of compost and planting crops has been rolling around in my mind lately, so here are some basics on earth management. Geomorphology is the study of the earthÍ s land formations. The glaciers formed during a cooling period and became the major land crafting tool in our area. The ice sheets and melting runoff, ground off mountain tops, and scoured out the valleys. As the earth warmed and the ice melted, large streams and lakes were formed. Streams carried soils and gravels and deposited them as the velocities slowed. Sediment in lakes settled to the bottom. As the ice disappeared, the rivers and lakes were reduced in size. Old shorelines and beaches, river outwash and gravel bars were formed. What we have now, are the remnants of that period. Clays were formed in our area when it was covered in water. The fine, crushed and ground rocks from the glaciers settled to the bottom of the lake and are now clays. Glacial streams and eskers left deposits of sands and gravels, just like you see in todayÍ s streambeds. Old beaches, and the banks and mouths of ancient streams are where many sand deposits are today. Moving water made the decision as to what was left behind. Fast currents carried the smaller particles and left the larger cobbles and boulders behind. Slower moving waters allowed the finer materials to settle out, just like you would see in the profile of a stream today. The glaciers receded and the runoff made its way to the sea. Eventually, vegetation started taking root in the material left behind, working its way up from the south. The cycle of life and death started the accumulation of organic material on the surface, just like the topsoil we have today. Soils are composed of particles of stone, organic matter and soil organisms. The stone fraction is sand, silt, clay or a mixture of these. In our area, we also have cobbles and boulders, but IÍ m not considering them part of the garden soil, although if you drove by my place, boulders do pop out of the ground like dandelions every year! Clays are the finest stone particles, and then comes silts and finally sands. They are all stone, just different sizes. But that difference in size makes a considerable challenge as to how to manage them. As a gardener, the topsoil is where you grow your plants, but the subsoil and material underneath make it easy or hard to manage. Now were back to sand, silt and clays again. Sands are the larger particles so there are minute spaces between each grain of sand which allows excellent drainage. But, because of the large spaces, sands allow nutrients to leach out quickly. Heavy clays are the fine particles of stone and have the opposite effect; they donÍ t drain well, but hold lots of nutrients. You canÍ t do much to change the soil type in your garden unless you want to mix sand in with the clays or vice versa. You can add organic matter though. Organic matter in the form of manure, compost and plowed down cover crops add tilth to your garden soil. Tilth is the ability to hold water, add structure to the soil and make it crumble in your hands when you hold it and break it apart. The organic fraction in soil is what makes the clays easier to work and the sands hold moisture and nutrients. Organic matter is the life blood of your soils. Organic matter holds the moisture during droughty periods. It also contains many of the micronutrients and is home to the soil organ-

Gibson Brothers begin new tour with guests on mandolin By Andy Flynn
firstname.lastname@example.org OLD FORGE „ The Gibson Brothers are maintaining worldclass caliber performances this spring while promoting their newest album thanks to a succession of professional guests on the mandolin. In mid-April, mandolin player Joe Walsh announced he was parting ways with Eric and Leigh Gibson after being with the band for more than four years. It came at a challenging time, as the Gibson Brothers began the busy festival season on the road without Walsh. They also began touring with a new CD, ñ They Called It Music,î recently released by Compass Records. Then thereÍ s the added pressure of being the 2012 IBMA Entertainers of the Year, an honor the brothers recognize but take in stride. As their song ñ They Called It Musicî topped Bluegrass TodayÍ s weekly chart for airplay on May 17, the Gibson Brothers were taking the stage at the Strand Theatre in Old Forge with guest mandolin player Jesse Cobb, formerly of the Infamous Stringdusters, who gave a ñ blisteringî performance, as Leigh described it. Cobb will be filling in on a few more dates, as will Sierra Hull, until the brothers choose WalshÍ s replacement. Adam

Steffey will also be playing mandolin with the Gibsons and was with them this week at Bluegrass & BBQ in Branson, Mo. ñ We are using different award-winning mandolin players for the next month,î Leigh said in an email. ñ I wanted to make sure we had a quality performer with us while we decided who would take over the job without rushing to a decision. While you can never be certain someone will be the right answer for the long term, giving ourselves time to find the next player can only help make a better call.î Using a variety of mandolin players takes the pressure off of finding a full-time player right away, according to Leigh, who expects to have a new member in place by July. ñ But for now IÍ m having fun getting to know and work with some incredible pickers,î Leigh said. The performance in Old Forge was a homecoming of sorts for the Gibson Brothers, who were playing to a crowd of longtime fans and paddlers. Old Forge is on the southern end of their home turf in New YorkÍ s Adirondack Park and hosted the annual Paddlefest this past weekend. Both Clayton Campbell on the fiddle and Mike Barber on upright bass joined Eric and Leigh. Campbell has been with the Gibsons for nine years, and Barber for 20. ñ Because of that, we allowed him this year to get married,î Leigh said of Barber, who also co-produces albums with the brothers. ñ So heÍ s going to do that this fall.î Their set began with ñ Help My Brother,î title track to the 2011 IBMA Album of the Year. It was followed by a collection of songs from past albums, such as ñ Safe Passage,î ñ The Open Road,î ñ Farm of Yesterday,î ñ Dreams That End Like This,î ñ Just LovinÍ You,î ñ Red Letter Day,î and ñ WalkinÍ West to Memphis.î It also featured music from their new album, including ñ The Darker the Night, the Better I See,î ñ Dying for Someone to Live For,î ñ Buy a Ring, Find a Preacher,î and the title track and the GibsonÍ s current No. 1 hit, ñ They Called It Music,î which Eric co-wrote with Joe Newberry. ñ There arenÍ t really singles in bluegrass music. Deejays play whatever they like to play,” Leigh said during the concert, filling the time while Eric tuned his banjo. ñ This is the one theyÍ re play-
ing the most, so itÍ s kind of the song thatÍ s charting for us. I canÍ t believe it; IÍ ve written things for the record, and theyÍ re not really charting. But this one of EricÍ s is. Maybe thereÍ s still some payola out in the world EricÍ s using up.î Leigh told a story about the songÍ s beginning and how Newberry, of Raleigh, N.C., once spent some time picking with an elderly banjo player up in the hills. ñ And he asked him, ï This style of playing that you do, when you were playing it years ago, did they call it country music, did they call it bluegrass, folk, old time, whatÍ d they call it?Í And the fellow said, ï Son, they called it music,Í î Leigh said. ñ Two months later, a lightning bolt finally clicked with Eric. It took him a while to figure it out. He said, ‘There’s a song in that.’ So he wrote it.” Eric also wrote the album’s final track, “Songbird’s Song,” which was the result of a three-day insomnia attack when the Gibson Brothers traveled to Denmark in 2012. “When we first got there, I was so tired,” Eric said on stage. ñ I said, ï IÍ m just going to take a little nap.Í And he (Leigh) said, ï DonÍ t do it.Í He said, ï YouÍ re going to mess yourself up. DonÍ t do it.Í And I said, ï DonÍ t tell me what to do.Í And he was right. I slept about four hours or so.î ñ He was walking the streets of Denmark,î Leigh added. ñ He knew where every hot dog stand was in Copenhagen.î The Old Forge concert was co-sponsored by Saratoga Guitar, operated by longtime musical friend Matt McCabe, of Saratoga Springs. Their encore performance was ñ Holding Things Together,î a tribute to Merle Haggard and symbolic of how the Gibson Brothers are getting along without Joe Walsh during their 2013 tour.
