Essex County grappling with potential 30 percent tax hike By Jon Alexander email@example.com ELIZABETHTOWN — If you thought the state’s budget outlook was bad, a glance at Essex County’s upcoming 2011 budget process is sure to garner a cringe as a 30 percent tax hike could be looming. County officials stressed this week that everything that can potentially be cut is on the table, including employee pay freezes, a sales tax hike and privatizing the county-owned Horace Nye Nursing Home. According to Essex County Manager Dan Palmer, the county is likely to fall $7 million short in 2011. In recent years, supervisors have dipped into the county’s fund balance to make up the difference and buy down the tax levy. But that fund is now depleted. Palmer says using any more than $3 million from the county’s reserves could threaten its credit rating. “We had hoped the sales tax figures would have come in better than they did in 2009,” Palmer said. Although only in the second year of a fouryear deal with the Civil Service Employees Union, a contractual clause that requires the reopening of negotiations if and when national health care is passed will bring the parties to the table on April 19. “We need a pay freeze, across the board,” Palmer said. Stripping Essex County’s 400 employees of their already guaranteed four percent increase would save $1.3 million. County officials are predicting health insurance costs alone will skyrocket 20 to 25 percent. Supervisors are also considering a onequarter percent increase in sales tax, which could generate about $2 million in revenue. Essex County Board of Supervisors Vice Chairman Roby Politi has renewed his calls for the privatization of Horace Nye, a potentially sticky proposition in the county’s eastern half. “We have to address the immediate solutions,” Politi said. “I know no one wants to talk about wage freezes or Horace Nye, but these are things that we are elected to address.” But Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafava isn’t buying the Horace Nye argument. “I’ve never had anyone complain about paying for the nursing home,” Scozzafava said. Horace Nye costs about $4 million a year to run. Palmer said the continued operation of the 100 bed facility all but assures at-least a 20 percent hike in taxes. Even with a $3 million fund balance buydown, county taxpayers face up to a 30 percent tax hike if significant cuts aren’t made. Essex County typically relies on about $21 million in sales tax to keep its two-dollar-perthousand property tax rate at the lowest level in the state. But the most recent year ’s return fell $600,000 short of 2008 levels. Officials said staffing reductions may be eminent and are considering adopting a retirement incentive program.
Tupper Lake – Doheny makes Congressional bid official By Jon Alexander firstname.lastname@example.org TUPPER LAKE — Watertown banker and would-be Republican Congressional candidate Matt Doheny is in the middle of a whirlwind three-day tour of the eleven counties that comprise New York’s 23rd Congressional District, officially beginning his bid to challenge Congressman Bill Owens this fall. During an early morning stop in Tupper Lake Thursday, Doheny described himself as a stalwart fiscal con-
servative with a focus on lower taxes and job creation. “We’re going to focus on something as simple as not spending more than you actually take in,” Doheny said. “But more importantly, people said if we send you to Washington, we want to focus on economic development. Certainly I agree and that’s going to be a large part of the campaign for the next six months.” He said that lower taxes spur job creation, not government programs.

Knopfler of Dire Straights fame to perform at LPCA LAKE PLACID — The Lake Placid Center for the Arts is inviting the public to a One-Night-Only Concert featuring Dire Straits Co-Founder David Knopfler with Harry Bogdanovs on Saturday, April 24 at 8 pm. Tickets are $16 and can be purchased by calling 523-2512.
About David Knopfler: Born in Glasgow, Scotland, David Knopfler grew up in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne in the North of England. By fourteen, David was performing his own songs in folk clubs and having learned guitar, piano and drums in his childhood, it's not surprising to find he's mastered many of the instruments he uses on his recordings. David founded Dire Straits, and with brother Mark recorded three albums, touring the stadium circuit extensively, before resigning three years later to follow his own path of independent, singer-songwriter. For more than two decades he's faithfully pursued his musical vision, writing and producing his own music on several critically acclaimed solo CDs. David creates songs of substance. They are by turns deep and captivating, elegant and thought provoking, with clever, gripping lyrics, his exquisite sense of melody blending effortlessly. More attentive listeners might even find themselves decoding the frequent buried references David includes. An example is found in "Jericho" (from his 2002 album Wishbones), the words to which conceal titles of previous albums and songs. David Knopfler has been fortunate enough to reach a wide audience without compromising his art. While he's enjoyed the respect and admiration of his musical peers, widespread critical acclaim, international awards and worldwide chart successes, he lives quietly in the English countryside, notching up an impressive list of writing credits. An understated integrity and honesty define Knopfler in both his work and private life. A family man and a lifelong member of organizations like Greenpeace, Amnesty International and Adopt a Minefield, David has always made uncompromising life choices. "I don't regard what I do as remotely glamorous. I write and record music because I completely love doing it,

Broadband project should be okay without state dollars By Jon Alexander email@example.com Federal officials said that although matching funds are required to tap federal stimulus funding for North Country broadband expansion, it appears that the project will move forward as planned. Bethany Lesser is a spokeswoman for Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand. She said Thursday that although previously promised state grants could dry up, it shouldn’t threaten the installation of fiber optic broadband in-
frastructure between Star Lake and Tupper Lake. “We have talked to everyone involved and were told that they will be able to cover the costs,” Lesser said. “The North Country should be fine.” Earlier this week, local officials learned the state’s legislative budgets proposed eliminating $100 million in grants meant to supplement stimulus monies going toward technological expansion. Last year, the Development Authority of the North Country was awarded $37 mil-
lion in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act grants to expand upon its existing 750 miles of fiber optic lines. According to officials at the National Telecommunication and Information Administration, the federal cash is contingent on a 20 percent local or state match. Local and state officials fear the loss of the state funding could doom the planned broadband expansion. In an interview Wednesday, DANC

PAUL SMITHS – Since beech bark disease first appeared in the Adirondacks 40 years ago, more than just beech have been threatened. Wildlife managers are concerned about the loss of beech nuts so critical in these northern forests for wildlife food. And other valuable species, such as sugar maple, can be crowded out by beech saplings, which sprout prolifically. Paul Smith’s College ecology professor Dr. Celia Evans will discuss the effects of forest management on beech bark disease and the landscape during a lecture on Friday, April 16, from 10:10 – 11 a.m. in the Pine Room, Joan Weill Student Center. The lecture is free and open to the public. Evans and several students have worked for several years to compare Adirondack forests where management has occurred since the disease was introduced to forests in preserved status. They have evaluated the severity of beech bark disease, and beech and sugar maple populations, in both types of forests. Beech bark disease is caused by beech scale insects that make the tree susceptible to a fungus that creates cankers on the trees. “Typically, only about 1 percent of beech trees are rePlease Join Us for the 20th Annual Meeting sistant to the disease agents,” Evans said. “But High Peaks Hospice & Palliative Care preserved forests have a Tuesday, May 18, 2010 greater proportion of beech 11:00 a.m. that are disease-free or –resistant than their managed Our Lady of Lourdes Parish Hall 114 State Route 9 counterparts.” Schroon Lake, NY Evans’ talk will assess

Obesity: a weighty issue T
he incidence of school age obesity is increasing. Obesity in adulthood is at unprecedented levels. In Essex County, a variety of agencies and people are looking at the issue of obesity and Essex County Public Health Educator, Jessica Darney Buehler is one of those people. “Diets are restrictive and short lived; not terribly effective for most people,” said Buehler. “A paradigm shift to a lifestyle where achieving a healthy weight is a side effect of living healthfully is an approach with which most people find long lasting success. Joyful pleasures such as playing with your children, enjoying personal recreation or just walking may become exhausting with extra weight. Getting your body to do what you want it to do by fueling it with healthful foods and keeping active will result in a healthy weight.” While many adult Americans are overweight, the concerns for obese children are even greater. If they are overweight their entire lives, the health implications are very strong and very negative. According to Buehler, there are powerful environmental influences that favor gaining weight. “Our health decisions are influenced by our policies and environments,” she said. “Those influences include the communities in which we live, the child care facilities and schools in which our children learn, the places in which we
work, residential facilities that some of us call home and media and marketing to which we are all subject.” Reconstructing our environment and policies so that they support healthy living is crucial. Our changed view of smoking is a good examBy Scot Hurlburt ple of a powerful environmental change. At one time 70% of adult Americans smoked and now only about 18% smoke. “Decreasing obesity will follow a similar track that the decline of smoking took,” Beuhler said. “We can construct a spectrum of prevention from which to address the issue from strengthening our individual knowledge, skills and decisions to collectively influencing policies and legislation.” “It won’t happen overnight, however; we must act now.” For more information about health, nutrition or obesity contact Jessica Darney Buehler at firstname.lastname@example.org Remember, all kids count.

Incredible, edible flowers L
ooking for a way to add some flare to dinner? Consider exploring the large array of edible flowers one can find in the landscape. Flower cookery has been traced back to ancient Roman, Chinese, Middle Eastern, and Indian cultures. During the Victorian era, edible flowers were especially popular, and today, more and more restaurant chefs and imaginative home chefs are garnishing their salads, soups, entreés, and desserts with flower blossoms for a touch of elegance. If you have never explored the idea of eating flowers, you will be surprised with the long list of edible flowers. I know I was. Common garden residents such as the lilac, rose, tulip, and daylily have edible petals! Many herb flowers have a similar, but intensified, flavor as the plant’s leaves. And even vegetable flowers, such as the flowers from okra, squash, scarlet runner beans, and radish can be eaten. Harvesting the flower blossoms is fairly simple. Harvest in the early morning or late evening as the sun and heat of the day causes the sugars in the flowers to transform into starches. Only harvest flowers you know are pesticide-free. Cut them from the plant and lay them in a covered container. Flowers that will not be consumed immediately can be stored in a single layer in a plastic, covered container in the fridge. Gently wash the flowers in water prior to eating. To reduce the risk of an allergic reaction, remove the stamen
and pistils from the flower. It also helps to remove the small white area where the flower petal attaches to the base of the flower. This part is typically bitter. Of course, one shouldn’t run out and eat any and all flowers they come across. It is important to remember ]not every flower is edible. Some flowers can cause severe digestive complications and there are even a few, such as castor bean and foxglove, which can cause death. If you have allergies to pollen, or asthma, you may want to avoid eating flowers as well. Properly identify any flower you wish to eat. There are many books on the subject as well as on-line references. Educate yourself before you start snacking on the beautiful blooms you have in the garden. With some reading and research, adding flowers to the dinner table can help add color to the plate and spice up the dinner conversation!

What you should know about coupon overage
reader wrote in with a question about overage. It’s an issue many Super-Couponers ask me about.
“I recently printed some coupons for $2.50 off picture hanging hooks. Then, I saw the hooks on clearance for 99 cents. I was so excited to think that I would get the item for free and possibly make money. The checker and the manager weren’t going to let me use the coupon, but decided to give me the item for free, with 99 cents of the coupon’s value. When I told them that I thought the company reimburses the amount of the coupon to them and that they should give me the difference, they said that was not true. What do you think?” Whenever the value of a coupon exceeds the cost of the item a shopper buys, interesting things start to happen! Couponers refer to the difference between the cost of the item and the value of the coupon as “overage.” When a coupon exceeds the cost of an item, many stores will scan the coupon, give you the item for free and automatically apply the coupon overage to everything else you’re purchasing. If your stores allow overage, clearly, this can be a great way to reduce your entire bill! But it’s important to remember overage is a privilege, not a right. Stores also reserve the right to adjust the value of the coupon down to match the cost of the item, which is what happened to you. You still got your item for free but the coupon didn’t “pay you” to take it home. If you find yourself in a situation where you may have a negative total at the register, you must add other items to your shopping trip to “eat up” that overage before you start to check out, or you will have issues with the register. Most cash registers will lock up if they go into negative numbers, simply because the store can’t legally issue you that overage difference in cash. If you were only buying your 99-cent item with a $2.50 coupon, the register could not proceed. The cashier would have no choice but to adjust that coupon’s value down. Now, if you were purchasing additional items in the same transaction and your store allowed overage, that extra $1.51 would be automatically applied to the cost of the other items. Again, this is a privilege, not a right. We can never demand overage, but it’s definitely a big bonus of coupon shopping. Stores allow overage because they will be reimbursed for the full value of the coupon when they go to redeem it with
a manufacturer. So while your item costs 99 cents, when the coupon goes to the clearinghouse, a machine will calculate the total redemption the store will receive. Your coupon will deliver the store $2.50 in value. It’s important to remember when stores allow customers to use overage, they’re not losing money — they’re simply passing that savings onto the shopper. They will be reBy Jill Cataldo imbursed for the full amount of the coupon. If a store chooses to adjust a coupon’s value down to the point where the item you’re purchasing is free, but the store doesn’t “pay you” the remaining value of the coupon, the store keeps that overage difference for itself instead of passing it onto you. Again, it’s important to understand they’re well within their rights to do so. Using coupons at all is a privilege. Stores do not have to accept coupons, although most do. And stores do not have to allow you to receive coupon overage, either. Of course, the stores that allow us to keep our overage are among my favorites to shop! Remember, too, we can also get coupon overage via stacking coupons. If we stack one store and one manufacturer coupon together, the value of the two coupons together may also exceed the item’s cost. I bought a deodorant recently that was on sale for $2.19. I had a $1.50 store coupon and I also had a $1 manufacturer coupon. Stacking those two together gave me $2.50 savings on the deodorant. I took the deodorant home for free. The 31 cents in overage was applied to some bananas I bought in the same trip. Next week, we’ll discuss overage in conjunction with instant-savings deals at the store. These sales can be an excellent way for the store to “pay you to shop,” too — with overage you’re guaranteed to get!

Congress From page 1 After several Republicans expressed interest in the race, only Doheny and Lake Placid accountant Doug Hoffman remain in the battle for the party nomination. County chairs from the district’s 11 counties have yet to endorse a candidate. But sources close to the story told WNBZ that many county committees may not endorse at all since a Republican primary is likely. Unlike Hoffman, Doheny told WNBZ that he’ll support whoever the district’s GOP voters choose. “I will get my personality and work ethic out there and let the voters decide. I truly believe that I have a lot of momentum and support and I will win,” he said. “But in the off chance that I don’t I will work hard for the candidate and most importantly I won’t run as a third party candidate.” Doheny is also seeking the Independent and Conservative party nominations. Hoffman has said he will run as a Conservative Party candidate regardless if he is on the GOP line or not. Across the country, Republicans are blasting incumbent Democrats who voted in favor of the recent health care overhaul. They are promising to repeal the law. Owens voted in favor of the legislation, and has begun crisscrossing the district touting the merits of health care reform. Earlier this week, former Colorado Congressman and state Republican Party Chairman Bob Beauprez told WNBZ the chances of the GOP grabbing a veto-proof two-thirds majority is – quote – “slim to none.” But Doheny said that like the GOP led welfare overhaul of the mid-1990s, the key to changing the health care overhaul during a Democratic president’s administration is resolve. “Before welfare reform was passed, President Clinton vetoed it twice,” he said. “You have to keep on working, so if it doesn’t happen immediately you have to keep on working and make Pelosi and her terrible crowd defend it.” Democrats currently hold a 253 to 177 majority in the House.

ALBANY — Applications are now being accepted for federally-funded Volunteer Fire Assistance grants through the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. Eligible fire companies include those that serve a single town with a population of 10,000 or less and those that serve multiple communities one of which is a rural town of less than 10,000 residents. Only expenses directly related to fire suppression efforts are eligible for funding. These include the purchase of portable pumps, portable backpack pumps, hand tools, hoses, light-weight fireproof clothing (Nomex), hard hats, turnout gear, portable radios, generators and dry hydrants. Expenditures not directly related to firefighting, such as acquisition of land, construction of buildings and facilities, major apparatus purchases and maintenance items are not eligible for funding. Fire departments must provide half the cost of the project being funded. All funded projects should be completed by October 31, 2010. Preference will be given to fire departments that have not received funding in the past five years under the Volunteer Fire Assistance/Rural Community Fire Protection Program. Last year, the program allocated $456,000, which provided $1,000 grants to 456 fire departments. A comparable level of federal funding is expected for 2010. The deadline for applications is May 15. For applications or further information about the grant program, contact DEC at (518) 402-8839,or write to NYSDEC, Division of Forest Protection, 625 Broadway 8th Floor, Albany, NY, 12233-2560.

From page 1 Executive Director Jim Wright said without the state funding, the project would fall $2 million short. “The state matching funds were announced in advance of the stimulus awards, so it was factored into the project’s local match,” Wright said. Federal and state representatives have labeled broadband access the economic engine the North Country needs to survive. As it’s currently scheduled, the installation of the Star Lake to Tupper Lake line should be completed by spring 2011.

Local blood for local people SARANAC LAKE – Adirondack Medical Center’s second blood drive of 2010 is being held Thursday, April 15 in the Redfield Board Room at AMC in Saranac Lake from noon to 5 p.m. While the blood drive has a goal of 38 units, AMC is challenging the community and its employees to knock that number right out of the Park. AMC relies almost entirely on blood collected locally by the North Country Regional Blood Center (a service of CVPH) to fill its own medical needs – surgeries, infusions, and attending to injuries. Donating is quick and virtually painless. It takes approximately 10-15 minutes to donate. The donor staff has a combined total of over 20 years experience, and especially welcomes new donors. Statistics show that of all the people eligible to donate – just less than 38 percent of the U.S. population is eligible – less than 10 percent actually do. If you’re eligible, now is the time to give. The need for blood doesn’t take a Spring Break. Blood cannot be manufactured — it can only come from generous donors. Plan now to stop at your convenience on Thursday, April 15 between noon and 5 p.m. in the Redfield Board Room at AMC in Saranac Lake. People wanting to reserve a time slot can do so by calling Sue in the Lab at 897-2359 or e-mail email@example.com.
