Stec endorsed, Tarantino starts bid
Pendragon set for latest show
By Keith Lobdell email@example.com ELIZABETHTOWN — The race for the 114th Assembly district got started this week as Dan Stec picked up another endorsement and Dennis Tarantino officially threw his hat in the ring. The Essex County Republican Supervisors made their second endorsement in as many weeks June 25, as they put their support behind Dan Stec for the 114th Assembly race. “I am honored to receive this endorsement because it is from supervisors — people that I have worked with as a fellow supervisor and as a member of a board of supervisors,” Stec, Queensbury and Warren County Board of Supervisors member, said.

LAKE PLACID — Superintendent of the Lake Placid Central School District, Dr. Randy Richards announced in a press release he will no longer serve as superintendent after the 2012-2013 school year. “I intend to leave the Lake Placid Central School District at the end of the 2012-2013 school year as the Board of Education in-

dicated that they will not be renewing my contract,” Richards wrote. This year, the school administrator has been the target of outraged members of the community. The very public call for Richards termination stems from a February 2011 incident in which Richards had made comments in a private meeting with then Middle/High School Principal Katherine Mulderig where he referred to her and other fe-
male elementary employees as “bitchy.” Mulderig filed a gender discrimination complaint against Richards last year and the Equal Opportunity Employment Coalition subsequently found that Richards engaged in both gender discrimination and retaliation against Mulderig, creating a hostile work environment for the principal. On May 1, the school board approved a $65,000 budget transfer toward a
settlement agreement with an unnamed individual after Mulderig had announced in April she would be leaving her position. It was later reported that she was the one that had accepted a settlement offer. Through multiple platforms, community members rallied support in favor of Richard’s resignation since the incident with Mulderig became public. CONTINUED ON PAGE 10

SARANAC LAKE — Members of the Saranac Lake Village Board Monday, June 25 tabled their adoption of a new fence law for the second time in a month. Since unveiling the amended fence law in May, residents have commented on its regulations and asked many questions. Concerns include a 2-foot setback, temporary fencing for gardens and snow, and whether existing fences are “grandfathered.” CONTINUED ON PAGE 10

Comic tells AVCS graduates to ‘keep being you’ By Keith Lobdell
firstname.lastname@example.org CLINTONVILLE — Students at AuSable Valley Central School were applauded June 23, but also took time to applaud their families. “You should be very proud today,” Superintendent Paul Savage said to the families in the audience. “It is really a tremendous effort and we are all thankful for your support, dedication and love. You give us your best and now they are ready to go out and give their best to the world.” “They were always there for us,” salutatorian Alexis Facteau said. “Applaud and thank your family for all of the hard worked they pushed you to do. They took you to practices and games, watched your games, Facteau helped you study and shared your tears.” Facteau also said that it was her classmates who helped her overcome fears, a lesson that she and they will need as they leave high school. “We must remember that fear of the future is worse than failure itself,” she said. “Fear no more and become stronger and more independent.” Valedictorian Sierra Cotrona also talked about overcoming fear and knowing where to turn for support.

Briony Guennel signs the graduation bear of Matthew Kelly before graduation. “Failure is OK because it is what builds us up and makes us stronger,” Cotrona said. “Do something that scares you to death — fall in love, change your mind. If you should lose your way, though, take comfort in knowing that you can always find your way home.” Molly Gardner, an AVCS alum and current comedian/actress, told students she had three thoughts for them: think positive thoughts; no job is beneath you; and you just keep being you and everyone else will catch up. “Negative thoughts are just your fears trying to pretend they are real,” Gardner said. “Your thoughts are your constant companion, so you need to decide if you want someone

around who lifts you up or tears you down.” Gardner also told the students to make sure that they knew where they wanted to go in life without limitations. “Write out your Gardner goals, and do not filter yourself,” she said. “You might surprise yourself with what you can do. Remember that you cannot control the outcome; you can only control that you do your best.”

Keene graduates remember their school family By Keith Lobdell
firstname.lastname@example.org KEENE VALLEY — Members of the Keene Central School Class of 2012 said goodbye to their school family June 23, knowing that they will always have a friend there. “The one word that I would use to describe Keene is family,” valedictorian Anna Kowanko said. “Every student upon entering is personally supplied with 400 parents and grandparents, 160 sibKowanko lings to argue with, and a community full of passionate aunts and uncles who all know you. This is the family that has shaped us and encouraged us.” “I do know that I can always find a helping hand and someone to cheer me up at Keene Central School,” salutatorian Emma Gothner said. “No matter how far along in life we are, we all know that we can come back here, to these same great people and same relationships we have formed with them and have our dreams re-inGothner

Lake Placid graduates told by former teacher to smile By Keith Lobdell
LAKE PLACID — With the Adirondack Mountains and home of the Miracle on Ice as their backdrop, members of the Lake Placid Central School Class of 2012 prepared for their next journey in graduation ceremonies June 22. Valedictorian Megan Borland said that she was impressed by the variety that could be found among her classmates. “We are all so different, but that is what makes us so great,” Borland said. “Anything that needs to be accomplished in life can be by one of our classmates. There is a Borland commitment to each other and compassion for one another, and that is the most important lesson I believe we can take from high school.” Borland also told her classmates to be friendly to others. “You can help so many and many others that you will never even know about,” she said. “Keep the small town kindness that you have seen here.” Borland added that graduation was a “checkpoint” in each of their lives. “Don’t accept this as an end,” she said. “There is so much life ahead.” Salutatorian Ayla Thompson said that it was up to each of them to keep their school society going, a strength that would be needed as they moved on. “We all have our own world, but to keep a society running, we Thompson all have a purpose,” Thompson said. “Some of us will change rolls over time and some of us will have multiple rolls, but you need to give it your all
Members of the LPCS graduating class celebrate with confetti. and don’t do things with only half of your heart.” Thompson added that the graduates needed to find something in their lives and give it their all. “Find something that separates you from the person on your left and the person on your right,” she said. “Give it your all and be yourself.” Retired elementary school

teacher Mary Kelley talked about having the graduates as students and reminded them to keep smiling. “It is the greatest asset you can have because of the character that you show when you are smiling,” Kelley said. “It cuts across languages and says it all. There is nothing more empowering in life than this amazing asset, so let it be yours.”
Lake Placid high school science teacher Micah Stewart was very glad to lose a wager that he had made with the Class of 2012. He had promised the members of his physics class that if they all passed the state Regent’s exam, he would cut his hair and style it into a mohawk, colored in LPCS blue and gold.

Valley News Editorial
Stop quibbling at the expense of education
hen schools axe programs that, when available and running efficiently, positively impact gifted and struggling students; when they eliminate activities that benefit all students, especially those from poor families who, in general, would not be exposed to them otherwise; when athletics, music, art, foreign languages and field trips become luxuries; public education is underfunded. When community members cannot afford their mortgages and rents, when the choice is food or life-saving medications, when businesses locate somewhere more affordable, somewhere else, taxpayers are overburdened. One is not the fuel stoking the other ’s painful fire, nor is one the infection feeding the other ’s sickness. Still, you would think that was the case when some school officials grumble that taxpayers are unwilling to support public education, when in fact, taxpayers are simply unable to withdraw from a depleted account. And what about taxpayers, who are fed up with rising taxes and take their frustration out on public schools, which have been ravaged over the past few years due to soaring costs and inadequate aid and are reduced to running off survival instinct, a quality system suddenly becomes an endangered species. It’s not like there is no money out there, or at the very least, government officials willing to borrow funds for causes they deem worthy. U.S. efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan possibly total more than $5 trillion, yet the reasons behind the military actions have been widely questioned as have the outcomes thus far. There is the $700 billion TARP bank bailout in October 2008 under Bush and the $787 billion Recovery Act in February 2009 under Obama. Bush enacted controversial tax cuts, which Obama and the Republicans extended for two years in an $858 billion tax compromise. There were also hefty bonuses on the taxpayer ’s dime during a time when the average American struggled to remain afloat and punishment seemed more realistic than rewards.
Depending on the individual, one may support all, none or some of the above actions. Maybe you are fine with where the money is going, maybe you are not. What is clear is that it’s not being deposited into the education bank. In terms of federal spending, defense, social security, Medicare and Medicaid, safety-net programs and interest debt come before education. When considering spending as a percentage of the GDP, Cuba ranks first when it comes to education and the United States, while tied for first place with Switzerland in annual spending per student, is merely 38th in terms of spending as a percentage of the GDP. The latter ranking is the one that counts, as spending-per-student averages and subsequent comparisons are tricky unless all variables are considered. An array of factors can increase or decrease the cost of educating any particular student, and many of them are difficult to pinpoint. One thing that is apparently not under debate is that Americans want education and health care to be the government’s top spending priorities, according to a University of Chicago Study administered since 1973. Yet the federal government supplies only 3.5 percent of public school system funds, with state and local governments picking up roughly 48.7 percent of the tab and taxpayers covering the rest. That taxpayer percentage is higher in many North Country schools. In the end, it continues to appear that taxpayers are overburdened and public schools underfunded. Perhaps next budget season, when taxpayers and school officials grow desperate and angry, instead of each being blinded by their own pain, come together, determine where the priorities lie and demand the government listen.

Say what you mean, mean what you say
ith the primary season now behind us and a pre-commencement of political head bashing just getting warmed up, we now prepare for the next big thing in the election cycle, the conventions. With the state of grid lock growing even more locked in place with every passing day it’s hard to imagine how the fall election will change the negative attitudes coming out of Washington. As the partisan lines begin to stockpile their ammo and the talking heads try out their spin maneuvers to twist every detail to conform to their party position, I would like to draw your comparisons between two leaders to help us reach some conclusions. I think it only fair to compare the job performance in New York State of Governor Andrew Cuomo and that of President Barack Obama. Granted Governor Cuomo has only been in office half the amount of time as President Obama, but the outcomes seem a stark contrast. Let’s start at the beginning. President Obama said at his inauguration, “That we are in the midst of crisis is now well understood. Our nation is at war against a far-reaching network of violence and hatred. Our economy is badly weakened, a consequence of greed and irresponsibility on the part of some, but also our collective failure to make hard choices and prepare the nation for a new age. Homes have been lost, jobs shed, businesses shuttered. Our health care is too costly, our schools fail too many -- and each day brings further evidence that the ways we use energy strengthen our adversaries and threaten our planet. Today I say to you that the challenges we face are real. They are serious and they are many. They will not be met easily or in a short span of time.” Governor Cuomo made three promises in his initial address to the public. “1. We need to clean up Albany and restore integrity. 2. We need to get the economy running and create jobs. 3. We need to stop government overspending and overtaxing.” He went on to say, “The real power of the Governor lies with the people of the state. Democracy only works when the voice of the people rings strong and rings true. I need you to help me. The State is at a crossroads. I believe the decisions we make, the decisions my colleagues make, this year will define the trajectory of this state for years to come. The decisions we make today will shape the state we leave our children tomorrow. ” Both Democratic leaders faced very similar
problems, during very difficult times. Each of us must come to our own conclusions on their results from their performance and the Dan Alexander promises they Thoughts from made good on. Behind the Pressline As citizens we should expect those candidates we place into office to do what they promise to do. Both men have spoken very clearly about their intentions and both have a record from which to be judged. Both made it clear that the job was immense, but both told us they were up to the task. President Obama went on the NBC Today Show shortly after he took office and said "If I don't have this done in three years, then there's going to be a one-term proposition." Over the past 18 months, in my opinion Governor Cuomo has lived up to his promise to revitalize the state’s economy to create jobs and restore New York’s reputation as a worldclass place to do business. He did so by thoroughly redesigning the state’s economic development strategies, presenting and passing a budget on time and adopting an entrepreneurial model of government. He made it clear that the state and the private sector must work collaboratively toward a shared goal and most importantly he led the way without placing blame or making excuses. Everything hasn’t gone his way but he’s removed the ranker in Albany and they are working together and making things happen. It’s called leadership. Mr. Obama, I think you need to realize, you have not met your own vision of accomplishment and you would be wise to follow your own instincts by making this a one term proposition exactly as you stated, by allowing someone like Governor Cuomo or Secretary Clinton to step forward and carry your party’s torch in this election. Who is best served by another Obama term, Mr. Obama or the country? Three and half years has been enough time for me to see we can not afford four more years.

To the Valley News: I have waited four weeks to see if your paper would continue to be so crass as to continue to place obituary submissions in the Want Ads Section. You should be ashamed of yourselves for denigrating people with such uncaring and unfeeling treatment during their time of sorrow. I note that this editorial decision also shows up in your sister papers, with one of them placing an obituary alongside a wood chipper and another, furnaces. If you are not ashamed of yourselves, you should be. This placement of obituaries in the Want Ads section could not have been made by a single person. Only a committee could have demonstrated such cultural indifference. Is there anyone in New York that will applaud your policy on obituary placement and peripeteia? Now, I admit that obituary submissions are getting rather long. I noticed one in a locale paper longer than a politician’s speech (with as little sense) and another whose cat received more accolades than the obituary for Albert Schweitzer. If extensive length is a problem for your paper, don’t insult your readership by placing an obituary in the Want Ads, simply restrict the wordage. In any event, congratulations, you certainly should make someone’s “Jeer” column. On second thought, maybe you are not ashamed of yourselves. Jim LaForest Whallonsburg
fter a weekend that seemed as if the events, breaking stories and life in general were never going to stop, I really needed a break. Of course, that was not going to happen on a Monday, when the piles of emails and work from the weekend seem to be an avalanche. However, as the work day came to a later-than usual end (for most days, but not a Monday), I saw that there may still be some time to get a little relaxation in. by Keith Lobdell The setup was that the kids were away and it was show night at the Depot Theatre in Westport. We had an idea to go earlier in the week, and events played out that we had the chance and took it. It was exactly what I needed. The opening play, Careless Love, which is hitting the stage for the first time ever at the theater/train station, was a musical with a country and bluegrass flair. Having become a fan of groups like Nickle Creek and after interviewing the theater ’s new managing director, Angel Wuellner, I was interested. At intermission, I told her that the play was living up to everything that she said it would be, a toe-tapping musical with a great story and very catchy songs. I really enjoyed it and would encourage anyone who can to go see it. But what the night really did was respark a passion for the theater. It has always been there. I was a member of the drama club and public speaking team in high school, had a nice role in the senior play and enjoyed going to college performances like Into the Woods, which I would say is at the top of my musical list. However, other than catching some very well produced and acted high school plays at my last job and equally well done performances featuring my children, I had not actually just gone out to the theater since my wife and I went to see Phantom in Salt Lake City for her birthday. This was before kids, and our oldest just turned 12. As I already said, this was a great night. It was just over two hours of leaving reality at the door and getting lost in a great performance. My mind never wandered from what was happening on the stage as I watched this story play out with numerous plots and some twists, all put to wonderful music. It was the perfect capper to the day and one that I desperately needed. So, obviously, I am once again hooked and will be back throughout the season, but the Depot Theatre is not the only place where you can get your theater fix. (This would also be a good time to wish the best of luck to one of the people who got me hooked on drama and theater, Mr. Scott Gibbs, who has retired from Westport Central School and was the commencement speaker last Saturday. Hope retirement brings you all hope for, including more Giants Super Bowl titles.) Already into its new season, the Pendragon Theatre in Saranac Lake is gearing up for And a Nightingale Sang. The show opens on July 3 with dates running through Aug. 5. One town up from Westport, the Essex Theatre Company will be opening their season with Godspell, on Friday, July 6. I had a chance to visit with their director and cast, which includes Dana McLaughlin, a young man who has been acting throughout his high school career (part of several of those high school productions that I covered in my last job) and into college at Plattsburgh State. There will also be outdoor performances and shows at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts, the Jay Entertainment and Music Society, Bouquet River Theatre Festival and more than I can both mention or remember. But the moral of the story is, do yourself a favor and take an evening off with your wife — or family, for that matter — and go enjoy one of the many excellent plays and performances taking place around the Champlain Valley and Tri-Lakes region. I know I will be going back. Keith Lobdell can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Response to letter To the Valley News: A recent letter writer seems to feel her choices were not supported when she had two abortions. I will never know her personal circumstances - the first time she faced an unintended pregnancy. Her personal situation may have been very different when she faced an unintended pregnancy a second time. Maybe she sought the counsel of her family, clergy or healthcare provider. I trust that she was deeply thoughtful about her decision each time. Thankfully, she was able to obtain safe and legal abortion services. Her health was protected so that she could continue to be there for her family. Choosing to terminate a pregnancy, place a baby for adoption or parent are very personal decisions. Women deserve accurate information and counseling free of personal judgment about all of their options. Government and politicians need to stay out of these complex, personal decisions. Trust women, as I do. Kathryn Reinhardt Willsboro
Summertime, take it easy Summertime maybe our most memorable season as it is so short yet so fantastic. As we all muddle through months and months of cold weather, just getting outside is a delicious feeling. If you are By Scot Hurlburt over the age of 30 or so, you may find yourself occasionally waxing about a special summer from years ago. Maybe it was the summer that you got your first car and your first taste of real freedom. Maybe you got your first real job and your own money. Maybe you experienced your first romance with a summer girl or boy from outside the area. Kids from my generation were free to do whatever they wanted to do as long as they did not get into trouble. Given the fearful perspective of most parents today, what I am about to say may sound unbelievable or even a little crazy. Most days in the summer, kids from my generation got up early, left the house and sometimes did not return to the house until supper, or sometimes not even
Thanks for support To the Valley News: Thanks to the people of Westport for your continued support of local Food Shelf through the collection done by the Postal workers, we are very grateful. You have allowed us to restock our shelves (again), at a time when we know it isn't always easy to give. We also want to thank the Sophomore class, Mrs. Phillips and Megan Suddith for remembering us with several large boxes of food. It is all of you and your thoughtfulness, that make our job much easier and we truly appreciate it. We live in a GREAT town!

Rally well attended To the Valley News: Although the weather was not cooperative on June 2, approximately 75 motorcyclists braved the downpours of rain to participate in the sixth Annual A.L.S. Motorcycle Rally & Poker Ride. The Committee wishes to extend its heartfelt thanks and gratitude to Mountain Riders, MC, for their continued sponsorship to this muchneeded fundraiser in the North Country Region. Special thanks to the Keeseville Elks Lodge for welcoming the opportunity to host the event for the first time. The new location was well-received and the event is in the process of being booked for next year. As the motorcycle rally is a huge part of the fundraiser, there are businesses locally, throughout New York State and out of state who make enormous contributions to the silent auction. Most of these businesses have been faithful donors since the first year and we are very grateful for their continued support. Zumba instructor, Ellyn Blaise (Keeseville Zumba Chicks) hosted another fun-filled Zumbathon as part of the day’s activities. We greatly appreciate Ellyn’s continued support toward this cause and offer a thanks to area instructors as well as dancers who come out to support local fundraisers. Last but certainly not least, the Committee wishes to thank the general public for its continued support in not only raising funds for A.L.S. but for raising awareness about this terrible disease that has resulted in the loss of too many North Country residents. Proceeds generated were disbursed to the A.L.S. Raising Hope Foundation created by Darlene & Roger Long of Peru. For more information about the Foundation and how can you become a member and/or make a monetary contribution, please log on to the following website: http://alsraisinghope.org.

We were free to go where we wanted and to do what we wanted, there was no set schedule. Kids today are experiencing a world that is highly structured and adult dominated. The school year is packed with many activities beyond academic pursuit and those activities now reach into many weekends. I have never agreed with activities during the weekends, I have always believed that weekend should be for family to do things together. I realize that I am in a distinct minority in this belief. For many kids, summer will simply be an extension of the school year with a tightly packed schedule that leaves little discretionary time. Many kids will go not just one sports camp but several. They will play in adult organized sports, go to summer camp, take swimming lessons, go on family vacation and, in most cases, always under the watchful eye of an adult. Summer was a time for renewal and rejuvenation at one time and that renewal came from the freedom to make choices. I wonder if children today will experience the interior exploration that comes from unstructured down time. Those down times may include being peaceful and quiet while doing absolutely nothing other than being outside. Free time means no set agenda, no adults hovering nearby and the option to let things unfold as they will. It seems that the fears of parents in general have been heightened by media portray-
Thanks for being there To the Valley News: On Sunday, June 17, the Wadhams Volunteer Fire Company held the Second Annual Boquet River Duck Derby. The Derby was held as a fundraiser for the Fire Company’s Community Fund, which we use to help support other community causes and local families in times of need. 400 small, plastic ducks were launched into the river from below the bridge in Wadhams and raced to the finish line, vying for the three cash prizes- $250 for first place, $100 for second place and $50 for third. In addition to the cash prizes more than 40 additional prizes were donated by local businesses and artists. We would like to thank the following for their very generous donations which helped to make this event such a success: Flower Designs by Tracey, Aerobie Fields Potters, Adirondack Day Lilies, Kelley Handweaving, Dogwood Bread Company, Ernie’s Market, Evelyn Brant, Juniper Hill Farms, Camp Dudley, Liberty Wadhams Soapworks, Lake Champlain Yoga Arts, Normandie Beach Club, Everybody’s Market, Bruce Misarski & Bridgette Blemel, The Depot Theater, The Inn in Westport, McCormick and Sons painting Enterprise, Northwaters & Langskib Wilderness Program, K and D Deli, Westport Hotel and Tavern, Glen Estus, and New Moon Pottery. We would also like to thank all those who bought tickets t participate in the derby and support the fire company, and those who came out to cheer on the ducks as they raced down the river. We hope to see you all next year at the Boquet River Duck Derby. Sheera Broderick Wadhams Volunteer Fire Company als of child abductions and abuse stories. These fears have resulted in parents keeping a much higher level of supervision than I experienced as a child. While no parent could be faulted for wanting to keep their child safe, there may be a way to minimize the loss of freedom. In the structured world where most children operate, adults have set all the ground rules and have made most of the decisions about how kids must behave. When kids have the freedom to operate with some autonomy, they have the chance to practice decision making and negotiating. Children will move at their own pace, discover their own interests and apply the vigor they deem appropriate in the pursuit of those interests. Parents can set play dates at a home where a parent is present but does not intervene in the play unless absolutely necessary. Many communities have playgrounds where kids can come together where an adult could be present but not hovering over the kids but rather watching from a far. Give your children the chance to experience as much freedom as is possible within your comfort zone. Free play is an important and fundamental experience that all children need. This summer, have a least a day or two where your child has some free time built in to their schedule to just relax and set their own agenda. It is summer, take it easy. Remember, all kids count.

SUMMER OPEN HOUSE
email@example.com ELIZABETHTOWN — A resolution to restore up to $5,000 in funding for an annual Office of the Aging senior picnic passed through the Essex County Ways and Means Committee June 25, but not without some concern. Lewis Supervisor David Blades said that while he was not making his vote “against the senior citizens,” restoring the funding was sending a bad message on the part of the supervisors. “Last fall when the departments were undergoing their budget cuts there was a question of eliminating the picnic or a part-time employee,” Blades said. “I believe that the director made the right choice and unfortunately, somebody has to suffer.” Blades said it also sends a bad message to those who were let go as a result of budget cuts. “I also have a hard time because we laid off people last year and this sends out a terrible message to those people,” he said. However, the remaining 15 supervisors in attendance supported the measure. “I think that we can do this,” Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafava said. “It has always been a well-attended event by the seniors and something they look forward to,” St. Armand Supervisor Joyce Morency said. “I do not think that this is something that we should take away from them,” board chair Randy Douglas of Jay said. Douglas also offered a suggestion of having each town put $200 toward the picnic, taking the funding away from the county, before the vote was cast. Discussion over the issue will continue next week during the July 2 regular monthly meeting of the board, as County Manager Dan Palmer said he would have to research some of the questions asked by the supervisors. “I did not anticipate there would be this many questions on this,” he said. “I will get the information back by the next week’s meeting.”

County to lend to highway for repairs By Keith Lobdell
firstname.lastname@example.org ELIZABETHTOWN — The Essex County Highway Department will be taking a loan from its parent. Commissioner Tony LaVigne sought and was approved a resolution for a $1 million loan from the general fund of the county to continue repair work in the wake of flooding that took place in the spring of 2011 as well as Tropical Storm Irene in August. “They will be returned when reimbursement is received from FEMA and OEM,” LaVigne said. “We have received $365,700.91 received so far but have submitted for over $1 million that has not been reimbursed. This loan is basically for operating funds to pay for our flood repairs costs.” LaVigne said that the county has received notification that they are eligible for FEMA and OEM funding for all of its projects except one, the Keene footbridge. “That is the only proj-
ect that has come back with a zero reimbursement on it,” he said. County Manager Daniel Palmer said he was confident the loan would be repaid because he was confident the federal money was coming. “They have not given us any indication that they are not going to give us the money,” Palmer said. “There are processes that are ongoing. All this will be is a loan to keep the projects going. This is an accounting thing.” “Except for that one project, more than likely we are going to get the full 100 percent back because the governor is giving the final 12.5 percent,” Board Chairman Randy Douglas said. LaVigne said that, while the funding is slow in coming to the county, they are not waiting to do a lot of work. “We have completed a lot of work but have not been reimbursed for it yet,” he said. “Most of our projects are large projects so they will reimburse us for the actual costs.”
Stec, Tarantino Continued from page 1 Stec said that he was also pleased with this endorsement because many of the supervisors had also worked with current Assemblywoman Teresa Sayward when she was a member of the Essex County Board as supervisor of Willsboro. “They have really been welcoming, and I really feel like they know that I will work for the people in Essex County and for them,” Stec said. “I think that the endorsement I received from Sayward has been a big part of that, and I have been working to get to all 18 of the towns before the election.” Several supervisors said that they felt Stec was the top choice for the party as well as the district. “As a standing supervisor, he understands the difficult issues which face local and County governments,” North Elba Supervisor Roby Politi, vice-chair of the Essex County Board of Supervisors, said. “He has always offered his knowledge and experience in a helpful way. He will make a great representa-

Corey to be part of DNC in North Carolina By Keith Lobdell

Sue Montgomery Corey said that she had been picked as a member of the New York State delegation as a member of the platform committee, which will travel to the National Democratic Party Convention in Charlotte, N.C., Sept. 3 through Sept. 6. "I was really shocked when I found out about this," Corey said. "The state committee recommended me to go to the national convention and I guess the big guys agreed."

He will take care of Essex County, and that makes us all happy,” Joyce Morency of St. Armand added.

Dennis J. Tarantino launched his campaign for the 114th Assembly District Monday, June 25 in Glens Falls. “I am not and I do not intend to become a career politician,” Tarantino said. “I maintain the Labor Ready motto of work today, paid today. I have been working every day in the private sector all my life. I want to take that work ethic to Albany to produce results for my constituents in all parts of this great District.”
A native of Washington County, Tarantino is a graduate of St. Mary’s Academy, Siena College and Albany Law School. Tarantino is presently the owner of Maple Abstract and Reality Corporation and the sole proprietor of Kenneally and Tarantino. “I have been blessed to be part of the Glens Falls community,” Tarantino said. “At this point in my life, I want to give something back to the community that has given me so much. I intend to use my experience and my professional skills to bring jobs, to retain jobs, and to encourage the growth of small business.” Tarantino intends to set forth a platform involving cooperation with Gov. Cuomo’s “New York is Open for Business” plan, improving the funding of distressed school districts, examining the status of unfunded mandates as currently being reviewed by the Cuomo Administration and creating an open dialogue with all special interests in the District starting with elected officials, small and large business owners, and individuals frustrated with the bureaucracy of state government.

fence law Continued from page 1 After their public hearing on May 29, Village Board members tabled the motion to approve the fence law pending revisions. And with those changes in hand June 25, trustees again decided to hold off. This time, board members are weighing questions arising from a new unpopular fence recently erected on the Lake Flower shoreline at Gauthier ’s Saranac Lake Inn. “As we all know, there’s been a lot of controversy surrounding the fence that has gone up at Gauthier ’s, and quite frankly it brought up some issues that I hadn’t considered prior to this, and I think it would be prudent for us to step back and take a look again at what we’ve come up with and to get it right the first time,” said Trustee Barbara Rice. Workers were seen taking down some of the fence at Gauthier ’s on Monday. During the public comment period at the June 25 meeting, two residents had questions and concerns about the fence law. Helene Nessenthaler, of Lake Street, asked if putting up orange plastic snow fencing on the corner of her property would be OK. She has the temporary fence during the winter to protect her property from snowplow damage. She also asked about deer fencing. “We have a problem on Lake Street with

deer,” she said. “And they nibble through the fences (on cedar trees, hydrangea and other plantings).” “What about the hostas?” asked Mayor Clyde Rabideau. “They really go after the hostas.” “They can’t get to the hostas,” she said. “My hostas are safe; they’re closer to the house.” This year, the deer are more of problem, according to Nessenthaler. “They’re everywhere,” she said. “At one point, we had one deer jump over the garden fence between my house and my neighbor ’s, and it looked like a Wild West show. I was out there. I had an old wash line. I was trying to scare it to go through the gate to get it up through, and it was an adventure.” She also asked if placing a new gate along the fence would be subject to the fence law regulations. Rabideau asked Community Development Director Jeremy Evans to answer those questions, and he started with snow fencing. “Under the proposed law, that would not be permitted, but under extenuating circumstances, I think we would work with somebody at DPW to work something temporarily,” Evans said. “Deer fencing would require a permit and would be subject to the height limits that are proposed. And technically I think the gate would be part of the fence and thus would be subject to the reg-
SARANAC LAKE — And a Nightingale Sang a story that centers around the hopes, foibles and strength of a quirky family during the course of World War II, will be performed at the Pendragon Theatre in Saranac Lake on July 3, 5, 6, 11, 12, 19, 24, 25, Aug. 4, 7, 8 at 8 p.m. and a 2 p.m. matinee on Aug. 5. The charming, bitter sweet and often hilarious play evolved from an oral history project commissioned by Newcastle –Upon- Tyne’s “Live Theatre.” “I love this play for many reasons, but primarily because it celebrates the indomitable human spirit,” Director Susan Neal said. The ensemble includes Mackenzie Barmen, Jordan Hornstein, Chris McGovern, Donna Moschek, Tyler Nye, Brandon Patterson, Binnie RitchieHolum. Pendragon’s 32nd summer season includes performances of Pinocchio, The Last Five Years, The 39 Steps (Limited Run- opens July 18,) and Shipwrecked (opens August 15, ) as well as performances of So in Love, a Cole Porter cabaret.

ulations of the fence.” Colleen Gowan, who lives around Moody Pond, said she’s thankful for the 6-foot height requirement because she’s not been happy with one of her neighbor ’s fences. She also favors a 2-foot setback, which is not currently written into the amended fence law. “I believe there has to be a 2-feet setback, especially if neighbors are putting up fences because they don’t get along or they don’t like you, then you really don’t want to be on each other ’s property,” Gowan said. “And the fence would have to be maintained, repaired, painted, stained, what have you.” Gowan also said there should be a condition in the law regarding natural looking fences that blend into nature when placed against the forest. “Obviously if it’s a picket fence, a yard fence or whatever on a neighborhood yard, that’s one thing, but when it’s right up against nature, I hope that’s taken into account,” Gowan said. Evans answered Nessenthaler ’s question about existing fences conforming with the new law. “If a fence is up right now, then it’s in conformance,” Evans said. “It would be grandfathered, so there’s no need for the village to go around and look to see if fences meet the new law because it will only be subject to new fences.”

Port Kent water plant online, now gives hamlet fire protection By Keith Lobdell
would we be sending out notices,” Morrow said. “I called a couple people after we went online and asked them if they had noticed any difference in the water quality, and all of them said they had not noticed.” The water district is backed up by a 170,000-gallon tank located near the plant that is gravity fed to the water lines through the hamlet. Hodgson said that awareness from the open house and official announcement of the system being operational, they would see more use from customers. “We are looking forward to seeing what the plant will do when more people start using water now that there are no restrictions on usage,” he said.
firstname.lastname@example.org PORT KENT — Residents of Port Kent will now be able to do a lot more with water. After years of usage bans and limitations with the old water system in the hamlet, town of Chesterfield officials have announced the completion of a new water treatment plant, which was unveiled to the public at a open house June 24. “People will now be able to water their gardens and lawns and wash their cars without worrying about limitations on usage,” Supervisor Gerald Morrow said. “The only time that we will ever have any kind of water ban on again is if there is a line break.” Morrow said that the current system has 100 users and 50 more buildings that can connect to the line, but usage in the system could be tripled if needed. “We now have the capacity to do what you would normally do in a municipal water system,” AES engineer Todd Hodgson said. “This means that development can increase, and subdivision can expand and they can all tap into the system.” Morrow said that new system also had an added benefit to homeowners. “We now have the capacity to flush the hydrants in the hamlet,” Morrow said. “Now, the homes have fire protection and people need to call their insurance company so they can get their insurance lowered.” The new water plant takes water from

Balthazar Dagley, 21, was born with a multitude of health problems, including a hole in his heart, narrowed heart valves, and heart rhythm issues. Zar, as he is known to family and friends, is autistic and is non-verbal. Zar has over-

SARANAC LAKE — On Saturday, June 30, at 7:30 p.m., Chris Conte will perform on double bass and Jack Woulfe on piano at Saranac Village at Will Rogers. This program is open to the public and a $5 donation is requested. For more information, please contact Debbie Kanze at 891-7117.
meeting the challenge, that’s what makes life worth living.”
email@example.com SARANAC LAKE — Graduation advice came from familiar faces at the Saranac Lake High School commencement Friday, June 22 in the Civic Center. In all, there were 125 graduates and hundreds of family members packed on the ice rink and in the stands, with industrial fans humming in the back door trying to give relief from the heat and humidity. After a short introduction by Superintendent Gerald Goldman, high school history teacher and guest speaker Joe Thill said he would give anyone $20 for a portable fan or $5 for a cold compress. Then he drew on history for advice to the seniors. “The unchallenged life is not worth living,” Thill said, revealing that this theme is a variation of the teachings of ancient Greek philosopher Socrates, who said, “The unexamined life is not worth living.” The message was clear. Live a full life of experience, ask questions and ponder your existence; otherwise, you are wasting your life. Challenge yourself. “If it’s human nature to take the path of least resistance, then I say don’t,” Thill said. “Put yourself to the test. Push yourself to the limit. Be the best you can be. Did I miss any clichés? … By doing this, your life will not be wasted. Quite the contrary; it will be fulfilling and complete, and you will be happier.” Thill explained that his early years in college were less than noteworthy, academically. “It took me failing the geology class to shock me to my senses,” Thill said. “I mean, who fails geology? It’s rocks. That’s when I said to myself, ‘What the heck am I doing here?’” Thill took a semester off, worked in a lumber yard, found his motivation and changed his major to history, a subject he loves and has true passion for. “Then I did something I hadn’t done in three years,” Thill said. “I challenged myself.”

He decided to improve his grades and soon went from being a near-dropout to a dean’s list student. “I got my degree and I did what most history majors do, and I decided on a job in a field that has absolutely nothing to do with history,” he said. Thill worked for eight years for an importer, bringing goods into the U.S. from Canada, eventually ending up in Champlain and meeting his future wife, Nathalie. “One of the reasons I love my wife is that she, too, believes that an unchallenged life is an unhappy one,” Thill said, “which is why 12 years ago she asked me, ‘Why are you working in a job that makes you miserable? Get out of Champlain. Why don’t you do something that makes you happy, something that you actually enjoy? Why don’t you teach history?’ A new challenge.” Thill left a good-paying, private-sector job to teach. “I did this for my own happiness,” he said. “I soon discovered the best school district in the area, moved to that district, and now I’m working and raising my kids here in Saranac Lake ...

The valedictorian for the Class of 2012 is Summer Schneider, the daughter of Fred and Robin Schneider. She plans to attend Syracuse University, majoring in photographic illustration. While working on her commencement speech, Schneider was inspired while listening to the Smash Mouth song, “All Star,” on her iPod. “As the second verse began and I was about to sing, ‘Well the years start coming, and they don’t stop coming,’ I stopped myself,” Schneider said. “I finally realized what the lyrics meant. All these years, and there’s a life lesson in a Smash Mouth song and nobody knew it … We can’t let our lives become a routine. Life isn’t about doing things over and over again.” Live life for fun, she said. Live it to be happy, and live for what you enjoy. Now is the time to try new things. “Smash Mouth says, ‘Only shooting stars break the mold,’” Schneider said. “Let’s make our dreams happen, even if they are outrageous ideas. There is no limit to how far we can dream ... Dream big Class of 2012. You’re all-stars. Get your game on and go play.”
Historic movie to be shown SARANAC LAKE — As part of the Adirondack Arts & Heritage Festival 2012, Historic Saranac Lake will host James J.

Residents of Tupper Lake hold their own garage/yard sales from Friday until Sunday. Maps will be available and last summer, nearly 40 household sales were held. The maps will be available for free beginning July 4 on the tupper-lake.com website and at The Tupper Lake Chamber of Commerce. Those wishing to participate can for an entry fee of $15. Application deadline is June 28. For more information, visit tupper-lake.com.
The salutatorian for the Class of 2012 is Jacqueline “Nickie” Trudeau, the daughter of David and Valerie Trudeau. She plans to attend Hartwick College, majoring in biology. “Remember the good times,” Trudeau said in her commencement speech, “and if you think about the not-so-good times, think about what we’ve learned from them.” Change is unavoidable, she said. “Guess what? If you make a mistake, there will be other opportunities,” Trudeau said. “They may not be the same opportunities or the exact change you would like, but there are always options.” Trudeau asked the graduates to promise her that they won’t give up during challenging times. “There’s more than one road to success, so you just have to find a path that works for you,” Trudeau said.

Jim LaValley gives advice to Tupper Lake graduates
By Andy Flynn
it.’ So, what did I take away from that exchange? A young person’s view of a complicated matter can be quite simple ... That little second-grade boy knew what needed to be said and knew that’s what everyone else was probably thinking. The difference was, he said it. It wasn’t offensive; it was honest ... When confronted with a challenge, don’t turn away from it. Face it head-on, even when it might be a little uncomfortable. Don’t be afraid to step in the middle of it.”
firstname.lastname@example.org TUPPER LAKE — Jim LaValley hoped Tupper Lake High School graduates heard more than “blah, blah, blah” during his commencement speech Saturday, June 23 in the high school gymnasium. LaValley — the owner of LaValley Real Estate, chairman of ARISE (Adirondack Residents Intent on Saving Their Economy) and longtime TV personality during the annual High Peaks Hospice Day — shared his list of 10 “Blah, Blah, Blah Points” with the 64 graduating seniors. They’re really nuggets of wisdom. •1) Live life: “You have a vast region of enormous potential located somewhere between your ears ... As adults, we want to help you avoid the mistakes we made. That’s not right. You need to make mistakes.” •2) Judging others: “Be careful how you judge others ... It shouldn’t matter if a person is fat or skinny, white or black, straight or gay, athletic or geek. We’re a part of one race, and it’s called the human race. It’s up to your generation to see that tolerance becomes contagious.” •3) Making mistakes: “If you make a mistake or somehow screwed up, it doesn’t have to define you. What you did yesterday does not have to define you today. But it’s up to you, and no one else, to define today.” •4) Listen: “Listen more than you talk. You’ll be amazed at what you can learn when you listen.” •5) Have fun: “Don’t be afraid to be goofy and entertain yourself. Don’t count on others to make your fun. And spend some time by yourself.” •6) Success from failure: “Let me run a few names by you: Walt Disney, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Henry Ford, Michael Jordan, Elvis ... They’re all people who failed miser-

ably before they became incredibly successful. They knew failure is not an ending; it’s a beginning ... Listen to your mistakes.” •7) Giving back: “Give something back and do it with compassion, not always looking for a return.” •8) Hometown: “Tupper Lake will always be your hometown. Now some of you are screaming to leave, and you don’t want to look back. But one day you’re going to realize that Tupper Lake really is the center of the universe. Now like it or not, it’s helped shape you. You’ll realize that this community is an incredible place that pulls together when it needs to, that the people care about
you, that you are always welcome to come back to your hometown.” •9) Faith: “Life throws a lot of crap at us ... There is a higher energy out there ... When you face difficult times, instead of crying, ‘Why me,’ try saying, ‘Show me.’” •10) Face challenges: During a High Peaks Hospice day at L.P. Quinn Elementary School, LaValley asked one girl, “Where’s the strangest place you ever found a coin? She replied, ‘In my throat.’ Well, it begged the next question, ‘How did you get it out?’” There was a little second-grade boy sitting there. “Without hesitation, he said, ‘She pooped

The valedictorian for the Class of 2012 is Kelsie St. Louis, the daughter of Kevin and Becky St. Louis. She plans to attend Clarkson University, working toward a doctorate in physical therapy. “Robert Frost once said that, ‘Education is hanging around until you've caught on.’ Well guys, I think we finally caught on,” St. Louis said in her commencement speech. “And I say finally because some of us never thought that we would be able to walk across this floor today, until approaching our senior year. For myself, I think I've caught on long enough to say that I am ready to leave.” St. Louis thanked her teachers and her parents and spoke of the many memories she shared with classmates and growing up in the digital age. “We are remembered as the age of Facebook, iPhones, and other ridiculous electronics that we have come to depend on,” St. Louis said. “I am sure that every graduating senior in the past three years has told me that the worst thing about college is owning a laptop or computer. When you should be doing your homework, preparing for that big test, or paying attention in class, you are distracted for hours by the never-ending drama provided by the one and only: Facebook. But how can we help it? Everyone needs a healthy dosage of Facebook drama.”

Community Concerts to open July 4 ESSEX — Carol Williams will help open the Essex Community Concerts series for 2012 with an Independence Day bang. The Arts Council for the Northern Adirondacks recently announced that it has honored the Essex Community Concerts again with an annual award. This very competitive award helps defray the costs of running the ECC program. Without that contribution, Jim Van Hoven, co-chair of the ECC Board, acknowledges that the quality and variety of the program would not be possible. The series is held in two parts: an evening series held at the Essex Community Church in Essex at 7:30 p.m. and featuring a broad range of music from classic compositions to contemporary, innovative works; and the midday series, which are brief, usually 30 minutes in length. They introduce polished folk music singers, vocalists, student groups from schools of music, and some groups who have previously performed at an ECC Concert. The concerts present a wide range of the musical arts. Performances begin at 11:30 a.m., are free, casual and end in time for patrons to enjoy the waterfront park and the many small restaurants in Essex for lunch.
Carol Williams returns to Essex to help celebrate Independence Day, July 4. Her program for the organ includes a selection of classical compositions as well as her own interpretations of well known contemporary favorites. Andrew Sheranian, an organist with training at the Institute of Sacred Music at Yale University and the New England Conservatory of Music returns to Essex for an evening concert on July 25. He is the Organist and Master of Choristers at All Saints, Ashmont in Boston, a parish renowned for its excellence in liturgy and music. The summer evening concert program moves on to the successful innovative work linking classics to jazz by the acclaimed composer and musician, Joel Martin. He brings with him more work from his trademark company, Jazzical, on Aug. 8. The Yale Whiff Alums will perform Aug. 20. Once members of the distinguished Yale undergraduate vocal group known as the Whiffenpoofs, this Octet reminisces as they return to perform some of their select songs from their alumni days. In the final evening concert of the 2012 summer season, the Goff Brothers of Plattsburgh, share their skilled accomplishments performing with piano, violin and cello.

Essex Community Theatre under a ‘Godspell’ July 6 By Keith Lobdell
ESSEX — The Essex Theatre Company opens its new season with Godspell, with the first curtain raising on Friday, July 6. “This is a good, fun show,” director and choreographer Antonette Knoedl said. “It has a lot of basis on the Bible and the Book of Matthew, but what we have focused on is the story that is about forming a community that includes friendship, acceptance and love. The show stars Andrew Murano as Jesus and Dana McLaughlin as John the Baptist/Judas. Other cast members are Elizabeth Abair, Jason Amrhien, Emma Helfgott, Meagan Juntunen, Natalie Kawecki, Peggy Orman, Sebastian Pray, and Matthew Rock. “It’s an amazing play,” said Murano, a Plattsburgh State student who had no previous acting experience until trying out for a college production. “It has been amazing to be a part of it, and I don’t think that I have been this close with the cast members before.” Knoedl said that the cast had worked hard and agreed that they had come together well. “It was a short rehearsal process, but they have been doing great,” Knoedl said. “Everyone has pulled together really well. Everybody has been working like a professional.” Music director Elizabeth Hill said that the tunes, while written in the 1970s, were timeless. “They are songs that are really open to interpretation,” Hill said. “The people who

have solos can really make them their own, and we have made some tweaks in the songs to keep things interesting.” The opening for Godspell is Friday July 6, with the gala at 5 p.m. with show at 7 p.m. The gala features hors d’oeuvres, desserts, a silent auction and cash bar, as well as entertainment provided by Knoedl. Gala prices are $25 pre-paid and $30 at the door. Showonly opening night tickets are $15. Other performances are Saturday, July 7, at 7 p.m.; Sunday, July 8, at 2 p.m.; Wednes-
day, July 11 at 5:30 p.m.; and July12 through 14, at 8 p.m. Tickets for other performances are $13 pre-paid, $15 at the door. To receive the pre-paid rate, send a nonrefundable check to Essex Theatre Company, P.O. Box 117, Essex; specifying the night, the number of tickets, and contact information. Pre-pay money must be received by ETC before the day of performance. For more information or to book reservations, call 526-4520 or email email@example.com.
A sample of the offerings includes Green Mt. Chamber Music students from Burlington on a first-ever visit; the Wannabees, folk singers who have previously performed at an ECC concert; The Sutherlands whose specialty is folk music and the Key Winds Trio who return once again; Kevin Stoltz, piano jazz; and the Shawn Parotte Quartet.

New Keene fire station ready for construction at different location KEENE — Keene's Fire Station, destroyed on August 28, 2011 by Tropical Storm Irene, will be rebuilt on higher ground. Construction is set to begin in August 2012. Private tax-deductible gifts will be necessary to raise adequate funding for the project.
The New Fire Department
Since the storm, Keene Fire Department has housed its equipment, four fire trucks and one ambulance, at temporary sites in an attempt to maintain the same level of emergency readiness. The new site of the all-volunteer department is directly across from the Stewart's Shop on Route 73 where Mountain Manor Lodge now stands. Sean Foran, project manager of Division of Fire Protection Services for the Syracuse construction management company Hueber Breuer, has been project consultant since October for a range of services, from site selection and financing to construction management. Since Sept. 11, 2001, new emergency facilities are classified as Essential Facilities, which must be constructed to be the last
structures standing after a disaster. This requirement adds to construction costs. The Keene Fire Department volunteers provide ambulance, fire and rescue services. Keene requires two fire houses who work together for rapid response to emergencies. The Town of Keene, which covers 156 square miles, is divided into two fire districts. Keene Fire Department (District #1) covers the entire Town of Keene and responds to calls in Upper Jay, Jay, AuSable Forks, Lake Placid, Wilmington, Elizabethtown, and New Russia. The second district is Keene Valley (District #2), five miles south, who also responds to the neighboring districts. While most of the 450 households lie within five miles of the center of town, there are settlements at the extreme ends of the town's boundaries, including those high on the hillsides. Further, Keene and Keene Valley are cut off from each other in emergency weather situations, especially high water. Emergency response time would be inadequate should there be a single fire station serving the entire area.
Finances and Fundraising
The total cost of purchasing new land, demolishing currently existing structures, and building the new station in compliance with the emergency structure codes enacted after Sept. 11, 2001, will cost a maximum of $2.3 million. In December, the town applied for $1.5 million from FEMA and recently received a grant notification of $680,000. Insurance paid $635,000. On April 24, a Town referendum to approve the project and a $500,000 borrowing passed by a vote of 116-35. The loan will take the form of a 20 year bond structured so that local taxes won't have to increase to pay it back. Those three sources of funds total $1,815,000 toward the $2,300,000 cost. “The generous donors to Keene Flood Recovery Fund at the Adirondack Community Trust supported the rebuilding of our homes and businesses,” said Keene Fire Commissioner Alan Carey. “With deep gratitude, we must again ask for help, this time for the first responders who protect us all.” The fundraising goal is $500,000. Town
members Tom Both, Dave Deyo and Pat Hickey have agreed to lead the private fundraising effort. Already, more than $100,000 has been contributed toward the new fire house, which has helped get the project started.
How to Give
The Keene Fire Department has established a Fund at the Adirondack Community Trust (ACT) to administer gifts for the new fire house. ACT is the community foundation serving the Adirondack region. It administered the Keene Flood Recovery Fund, which recently closed successfully. If you would like to make a tax deductible gift for the fire department's new building, you may send a check payable to the Keene Fire Department Fund directly to ACT at Post Office Box 288, Lake Placid, N.Y., 12946, or contact Executive Director Cali Brooks at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can contact Jody Whitney, Fire Chief, at email@example.com for more information about the fire department. Information will also be available at the www.keenefiredept.com website soon.
Companies give to local towns By Keith Lobdell
firstname.lastname@example.org ELIZABETHTOWN — Two local companies with ties to two North Country towns most severely damaged after Tropical Storm Irene made good on a matching donation pledge June 25. At the beginning of the monthly meeting of the Essex County Ways and Means Committee, Jay Ward of Ward Lumber and Jason Fuller of Fuller Excavating presented two checks worth $5,000 each to Jay Supervisor Randy Douglas and his counterpart from Keene, William Ferebee. Both checks were presented as part of a match fundraiser, where the two companies
matched donations by their customers to the Jay and Keene Flood Relief Funds. “Every one dollar became three,” Ward said in presenting the checks. “When we started this challenge to help the towns of Jay and Keene after Irene, it formed into this great opportunity where Jason and I were able to match every dollar that was donated.” The fundraiser was originally started by Ward and his company, with Fuller later adding his support through a matching fund campaign. “It gave us a chance to promote the fundraiser and talk about it again when Jason came on,” Ward said. “It was a chance to help the communities and give back,” Fuller said.

July 4 ski jumping returns to Placid LAKE PLACID — The tradition dates back to the beginning of the 20th century and will continue, Wednesday, July 4, when ski jumpers take to the Olympic Jumping Complex for the beginning of the summer jumping season on the 90 meter ski jump.

This is a season-long series that includes the July 4 event, the Flaming Leaves meet in October and the Masters Ski Jump in December. The annual competition will begin at 1 p.m. with the first of three jumping rounds. The biggest difference between summer and winter ski jumping is the weather. Lake Placid is one of the few sites in the world where you can see this winter sport while wearing shorts and a polo shirt. Admission to the event is $15 for adults, $9 for juniors and seniors and includes a chairlift ride and an elevator ride to the top

Camp Dudley returns at ‘full strength’ after repairs from 2011 floods Landscaping, repairs from 2011 floods completed
By Keith Lobdell
email@example.com WESTPORT — The view from the cub cabins is quite different in 2012 as the youngest campers at Camp Dudley, YMCA, will have a breathtaking view of Lake Champlain. It will be the first time they will have this view. First of all, there used to be trees in their way, and second of all, when those trees were damaged or fell into the lake during the spring 2011 floods, the cabins were also in danger and not usable. But as a new camping season opened June 26, every cabin on the property and every beach area was set for the summer, according to camp director Matt Storey. “We are back and better than ever,” Storey said. “We rebuilt over 80 footers on the cabins and have all 41 cabins ready for the season.” Last year, campers stayed in three yurts that were placed on the grounds while work was done to fix the lakeshore and repair the cabins. “Travis Sheehan and Sheehan and Sons did a great job, and they were a terrific partner on this project,” Storey said. “Ted Taylor of Taylor Tree Service helped us to replant trees in and around the cabin and Peter Gibbs did a great job as our engineer for
what needed to get done.” With all of the cabins back in operation, the yurts were taken down earlier this spring. “Now, they are just three funny circles in the middle of the grass,” Storey said.
Local approach Storey said that using local businesses at Camp Dudley was not just limited to the work that was done after the floods. “We try to bring in as much local supplies as we can,” he said. “We work with Adam Hainer at Juniper Hill Farm as well as DaCy Meadow for our produce. We also send campers and leaders to the Juniper Hill to learn about organic gardening. We also get our flour from the grainery here in Westport. Keeping things local has been one of my key areas of focus since I have been here.”
Busy summer Camp Dudley is going to need all of the food and all of the cabins for the upcoming year. “We have 350 boys coming for the first half of the season and 340 for the second,” Storey said. “This is probably our biggest ever camp, and we have been getting calls every couple of days from people asking if there is room and we have to say no. It’s a nice situation to be in, but you hate to say no to anyone.” Storey also said the season set a record for

Camp Dudley director Matt Storey talks about the renovations done at the boys camp after the 2011 spring floods. Photo by Keith Lobdell scholarships awarded to attend the camp. “We gave out close to $700,000 in scholarships for boys to attend, and we feel pretty good about that,” he said. While leaders and staff had been at the camp for the past few weeks, preparations for the season had ramped up as the days counted down to opening day. “On Tuesday (June 26) morning, there will
Black smoke billowed from Lake Champlain around 9 a.m. Sunday, June 24, after a boat drifting near Westport caught fire. Members of the Westport Volunteer Fire Department responded to the call, being assisted by the Westport Marina as they hooked onto the burning vessel and brought it closer to shore, where firemen doused the flames from land. According to a witness at the Bistro restaurant, he noticed the boat smoking as he was having coffee on the deck. “I was trying to figure out why there was steam coming out of the boat,” the witness said. “Then I
be 50 people here and by 2 p.m. there will be 500,” Storey said. “It’s a great time of year as the staff and the campers start to roll in.” Storey is the 12th director of Camp Dudley, YMCA, which was formed in 1885 and has been rooted in Westport since 1908. It is the oldest continually running summer camp in the country and welcomes boys ages 10-1/2 to 15.
realized that it was on fire.” WVFD Chief Jim Westover said that a cause had not been determined at the time of the incident, pending interviews with the owners of the boat, who both escaped the blaze. Witnesses said that the boaters were able to leave their flaming vessel and escape to a neighboring boat which took them ashore. Firefighters were able to contain the fire quickly once the boat was towed in range of their fire hoses, using the marnia boat to get a closer look at the damage. A boat from the Vermont State Police was also on scene to offer assistance.

Big Boy Bass T
he tournament season is in full swing on Lake Champlain and the Big Boys of Bass fishing are coming to town. The FLW Tour ’s final Major event of the season will be hosted on Lake Champlain by the city of Plattsburgh and the Adirondack Coast Visitors Bureau By Howard Hammonds with a lot on the line as some of bass fishing’s top names vie to overtake Lynchburg, Virginia’s David Dudley for Angler of the Year title. Anglers are also competing to qualify for the Forest Wood Cup, the FLW’s championship, and the grand prize of $125,000. With the unseasonably warm weather in the North Country the competitors face a different lake than in past tournaments. Normally, coming to Plattsburgh in mid-June the bass would still be on spawning beds. Many local fisherman report the spawn has come and gone, however. And most bass have entered their summer patterns. What this means to the competitors is the weight of fish caught will be down with the result being mere ounces determining positioning on the FLW leaderboard. The loss of one big fish could mean the difference between winning and losing, or a big check and no check at all. For those not familiar with tournament bass fishing, competitors can weigh in five fish per day with the leader determined by the heaviest weight for their five fish. After four days of fishing the winner is determined by the most weight for up to 20 fish. Tournament fishing in the North Country has become a controversial topic. Fish kills, high speed boating and whether fishing for cash is sportsmanlike at all are subjects being debated. The reality is that there is very low mortality among fish caught during tournaments. Because of the dead fish penalty imposed by the tournament rules great care is taken by tournament anglers to keep their fish alive. Tournament anglers use live wells on their boats along with chemical additives to keep fish alive. A dead fish can not only cost the competitor points but a great deal of cash. High speed boating? The first question I am asked by the casual observer is why do I need a 21-foot boat with a 250 horse power motor that runs 70 plus mph. The answer is real simple: the time I save between fishing spots the more time I have to fish. Moreover, I have been involved in tournament fishing for 26 years and know of only two deaths, and neither of those had to do with speed. Just like a race car driver, when you’re running the wide open spaces of the lake you’re paying close attention to what’s going around you. I really think it’s a lot safer on Lake Champlain at 70 mph than interstate 87 at 65 mph with big trucks passing me at 75 mph. Why fish for cash at all? Just the nature of sports, keep score and sooner or later people are going to want to keep score for money. But, the sport of bass fishing is a big business and has a large impact on local economies. Three hundred competitors coming to the North Country, buying gas, staying in motels, eating meals becomes an important financial plus for local small businesses. Get a firsthand feel for the sport this weekend. The FLW Tour weigh-ins will be conducted at the Plattsburgh State University field house with a Fun Zone for kids from noon-4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. You will have an opportunity to meet the pro fisherman, a chance at samples and giveaways, and can play interactive games hosted by the fisherman all sponsored by the various companies involved with the sport, especially Walmart. I’ll be there, hope to see you.

Ahhh ... summertime
his is the time of the when it appears that everyone, and everything is on the move. Car and bikes are on the highway, while paddlers and boaters are on the water. Hikers have returned to the woods, as drivers and bikers precariously share the roadways. It is an especially tough time of year to be on the road, as many of the region’s highways are finally getting much needed facelifts following last year ’s flood. It is always a curious balancing act that plays out about the same time every year. Families are celebrating High School graduation as the tourist season hits the ground running with festivals, races, reunions and more. With the arrival of July 4th, friends and relatives always try to visit, and the summer season is finally hitting on all cylinders. Although I don’t really need any reminders of the season, I experienced a most pleasant nudge last week that served to rumble up some pleasant memories. It occurred along a small stream, as I was paddling back home, after a long day spent fishing up-river. I had paddled as far upstream as possible, and in my enthusiasm to continue casting to the readily rising trout; I lost track of time. I had been absorbed in the moment, and in a moment it was dark. It wasn’t a long trip back, paddling with the flow, but with the evening growing increasingly closer, I put down the rod and took up the paddle. The stream’s banks are lined with a nearly impenetrable tangle of tag alders, and surrounded by a mix of swale grass hummocks and a very muddy and murky bog. It’s not the kind of place to walk out of, easily. Once I got beyond the tunnel of alders that shrouded the upper sections, the stream opened up a bit. The stars were in the sky, and I could make out the course of the stream ahead, but it was still very dark, and nearly black on the water. With the paddle, I gingerly reached ahead trying to stay in the middle of the stream. Without being able to focus on a point of reference, I was off kilter, and off balance. But then, almost as if someone had flicked a switch, the lights came on. Slowly at first, but with increasing frequency, as I made my way further downstream, and out of the alders and into the grassy banks. The stream banks were illuminated with the steady blinking of lightning bugs, on both sides. In the muggy dusk, after a long day on the water, the lights appeared as if someone had strung a string of lights through the grass. The scene stirred childhood memories of family trips to visit my Grandparent’s in Poughkeepsie, where lightning bugs always seemed to be out in force on the hot, muggy evenings along the Hudson River valley. Whenever we would visit, one of our Uncles would send us out to collect them in a big, glass jar. And he always paid us a handsome price too, ranging he claimed, on the going rate. He would take as many bugs as we could supply, he once explained, because he later resold them to General Electric. Even though he was our favorite Uncle, as kids, we were convinced he was getting rich on our
hard work. “I’ll bet he gets paid a dollar for each one”, my older brother once complained. “Let’s just go back inside.” Fortunately, I never paid much attention to him; I just kept on chasing fireflies. I have come to realize that in a way… I’m still chasing them, even if the focus of my quest is no longer fireflies. I continue my search with the enthusiasm of a child, for that is after all, the purpose of outdoor recreation. It provides us with a renewal of spirit, and the pleasures of redoing and renewing the enjoyable moments of our past. We may see it in the starry night sky, or hear it in a cricket’s chirp, feel it in the wind on a breezy Adirondack mountaintop, or taste it as a fresh picked raspberry. If you can no longer find it, taste it or smell it, it may be time to quit searching. If you stop the chase and just sit still for a while; it will find you. Happiness is a feeling, and like a dog chasing it’s tail, good feelings are difficult to catch. But, like a tail, if you stop chasing it and it will follow you wherever you go, Its summer, a season that was once considered the most fleeting of them all. Take the time to ride a bike, climb a tree, jump in the lake or take a hike on a forest trail. Summer is more about a sense of place, than a sense of season.
