APA, DEC remind shoreowners of regulations By Chris Morris RAY BROOK — The Adirondack Park Agency and state Department of Environmental Conservation are urging shoreowners and contractors to consult with either agency before undertaking any construction within shoreline setback areas. In a release issued last week, both APA and DEC officials reminded property owners that the construction, expansion or replacement of any shoreline structure without the necessary permits is grounds for fines. Those changes include

the installation of seawalls, riprap, docks, cribs and boathouses. DEC Region Five Director Betsy Lowe said healthy shorelines are a valuable natural feature of the Adirondacks. “The application of appropriate standards for shoreline structures protects the aesthetic character of our landscape as well as associated habitats for a variety of wildlife,” Lowe said. Dave Winchell is a spokesman for the DEC. He noted that erosion can occur if someone undertakes a project without taking the appropriate steps beforehand. Additionally, Winchell said some shoreline projects restrict animals from

moving from the water to the land. “One of the big concerns we have is a lot of people want to put up those vertical concrete walls as shoreline protection, and that prevents animals from moving in and out of the water,” Winchell said. “You can develop shoreline protection projects that still provide habitat for aquatic animals that live right on the water ’s edge.” APA Chairman Curt Stiles said keeping up with regulatory changes will prevent property owners from incurring penalties and fines.


Martino chosen APA executive director By Matt Bosley RAY BROOK — The Adirondack Park Agency has hired a new executive director: Terry deFranco Martino. Martino, who has spent the past 23 years working for the Adirondack North Country Association, will take the administrative post effective Aug. 12. “Terry Martino brings an incredibly rich background and understanding of the Adirondack Park, its people and its Terry Martino needs,” said APA Chairman Curtis Stiles in a news release July 10. “We are extremely fortunate to have someone with Terry’s established management abilities, leadership skills and demonstrated success in the key leadership position at the Agency.” A resident of Onchiota, Martino has been executive director of ANCA since 1991, managing the regional nonprofit that focuses on maintaining economically viable communities, environmental stewardship, and protecting a rural quality of life. “Throughout my career I have recognized the tremendous value of balancing economic and community development with environmental stewardship inside the Park,” said Martino. Her work at ANCA included oversight of personnel, programs and finances with annual budgets ranging from $600,000 to 2.5 million dollars. She also developed partnerships with other local organizations and municipalities, providing administrative support to initiatives such as the Common Ground Alliance. The APA said Martino has also been instrumental in securing and managing millions of dollars in investment in the Adirondack North Country including; USDA Forest Service Ice Storm Recovery Program, Scenic Byways Marketing Programs, USDA Grazing Lands Conservation Initiative and the Heifer Project International. Martino also played a role in helping Saranac Lake to obtain status as an All-American City. She recently served as program director for the Adirondack Park Regional Assessment Project and as director for CBN Connect, an agency heavily involved in bringing new communications infrastructure to the Adirondack region. “We look forward to Terry’s expertise and proven leadership abilities in moving forward important public policy

Adirondack Council withdraws lawsuit threat By Chris Morris RAY BROOK — An Adirondack Park-based environmental group has withdrawn a notice of intent to sue the village of Saranac Lake over a salt and sand pile that officials say is contaminating Lake Colby. John Sheehan is spokesman for the Adirondack Council. He said the organization filed the notice of intent to pressure local government officials into alleviating the problem. Now, the village has agreed to cover or remove the pile no later than Oct. 1, 2009. The decision comes just days after Saranac Lake signed a consent order with the state Department of Environmental Conservation to set a schedule for clean-up. Sheehan said the Adirondack Council is pleased the situation could be resolved without litigation. “Our decision to withdraw the lawsuit came essentially because of the order that was signed by the village and the DEC that sets a specific schedule for the removal of the salt

Malnourished animals seized in Gabriels GABRIELS — On Tuesday, June 2, the New York State Police in Ray Brook, in conjunction with the Tri-Lakes Humane Society in Saranac Lake and the Franklin County District Attorney’s Office investigated a cruelty to animals/neglect complaint at 85 County Route 60, also known as the Rainbow Lake Road in Gabriels, in the Town of Brighton. As a result of the investigation, the Humane Society removed one horse, eight chickens, four cats, one dog, two peacocks, one cockatiel and one guinea pig due to their malnourished physical condition, unsanitary living conditions, and numerous treated injuries. The animals were removed to the Humane Society shelter in Saranac Lake where their condition is being checked by a veterinarian, and medical care will be given to those animals requiring it. The owner of the animals, 62-year-old John J. Guest was arrested for a misdemeanor of failing to provide proper care to an animal. During the course of the investigation, Guest was also arrested for one count of endangering the welfare of a child, also a misdemeanor. The child in question was taken into custody by Franklin County Child Protective Services. Guest was arraigned on charges June 3 and is expected to face further court action in the future.

pile and its relocation to a place where it won’t be melting into water nearby,” Sheehan said. “We were prepared to go to court if there was no action by the village, but we’re happy to see that they have voluntarily agreed to work with DEC to fix this problem.” Adirondack Council Executive Director Brian Houseal said the incident should serve as a wake-up call to other Adirondack municipalities that have neglected to cover-up salt storage piles. Several trustees were reluctant to sign the consent order. But village manager Marty Murphy said it was the best option on the table – and perhaps the cheapest. “We have to take some action here,” he said at a July 6 board meeting. “They’ve indicated they will withdraw the intent to sue if we sign the consent order.” With the intent to sue out of the picture, Mayor Tom Michael said it’s time to move on. “We’re definitely pleased that the council has decided to withdraw their intent to sue,” he said. “We went into the negotiations with DEC as they’re regulatory agency, and one of our issues was to make sure we had covered and ad-

dressed anything that the council had brought up in the notice of intent to sue.” DEC Region Five Director Betsy Lowe said the agreement reached last week concludes years of negotiations to solve the problem. “We are pleased that a resolution is in sight that will ensure the protection of the water quality of Lake Colby,” she said. Dave Winchell is a spokesman for the DEC. He said the threat of the lawsuit coupled with the apparent standstill between Harrietstown and the village to propose a shared salt/sand shed prompted the department to draft the order. “We stepped forward and developed the consent order which works both ways,” Winchell said. “The number one priority of ours was getting this situation resolved, for the village it means that with that order in place they would not be sued by the Adirondack Council.” As part of the consent order, the village agrees to pay a $1,500 fine – that includes a reduction of $3,500 providing the village meets the scheduled requirements.

Rhubarb festival upcoming SARANAC LAKE — Saranac Lake will join cities in England, Canada, Australia and throughout the U.S. as it hosts its first Rhubarb Festival Saturday, July 18, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Riverside Park. Festival chair Barbara Rexilius, who has been nicknamed “Rhubarbara” because of her enthusiasm for the vegetable, hopes that rhubarb will become a serious cash crop for the North Country. “Why can’t it be a cash crop,” she said, “if you can find other uses for it than strawberry-rhubarb pie?” Rexilius said rhubarb is experiencing a culinary renaissance with a wide variety of uses, including rhubarb cakes and pies, wine, barbecue sauce, candy, chutney, and dumpling. The festival will celebrate rhubarb in food, games, contests, music, a raffle, and sales of rhubarb itself. Contests for the biggest and best rhubarb leafs, stems, and baked goods are open to the public. In addition, artists young and old are urged to create art that best represents the essence of

rhubarb. Art can be in the form of poetry, music, drawings, paintings, sculpture, jewelry, household crafts, or any other type of expression. Various rhubarb baked goods and other treats, packets of rhubarb recipes, and T-shirts will be sold as well as rhubarb stalks and root balls. Grass-fed beef burgers with local cheese on organic wheat buns will also be available. Rhubarb-themed games and face paining will be available for children, and a 50-50 raffle will also be held. The Rhubarb Festival will be celebrated alongside the Saranac Lake Village Farmers’ Market, which will operate from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the same day, also in Riverside Park. Many of the farmers’ market vendors are expected to stay throughout the Rhubarb Festival. The Adirondack Unitarian Universalist Community (AUUC) is the sponsor of the Rhubarb Festival. For further information about the Festival, call Barbara Rexilius at 8911941.

Milfoil prompts closure of Lake Placid Marina By Chris Morris LAKE PLACID — The Lake Placid Village Board of Trustees voted unanimously last week to close the municipal marina for up to one month as crews gear up to remove aquatic milfoil from Paradox Bay and East Lake. Following a presentation by Lake Placid Shoreowners Association President Mark Wilson, Trustee Zay Curtis asked the board to close the village marina for no longer than one month or as long as it takes to eradicate the invasive weed. Because the village owns the property, the board can close the marina without a public hearing. If invasive removal experts can finish the job in less than one month, the marina will reopen as soon as possible. Should it take longer, the board must make a second motion to keep the marina closed. Mayor Craig Randall said shutting down the marina for about a month will assure that the problem is addressed before it gets any worse. In addition to Placid Lake’s environmental and economic importance, it is also the source for the village’s drinking water. “Our lake is an incredibly valuable resource for all of us,” Randall said. “Getting control of this insidious weed and getting it out of our lake at the earliest opportunity is what we’re about to do,” he said. “The closure is short term, it’s not to exceed a month, during which time contractors will be in the lake removing the milfoil. If they accomplish the job sooner than a month it’s the intent of the board to reopen the launch site to the public as soon as that’s been accomplished.” Wilson mapped out the infestation points using a homemade map that featured Paradox Bay, East Lake and the Peninsula. The drawing showed where the variable leaf milfoil has rooted itself in relation to the village marina as well as the state Department of Environmental Conservation’s boat launch on Mirror Lake Drive. Prevailing winds have driven the weed to seven known sites around that area. Stormwater runoff has also contributed to the cultivation of milfoil, as those waters contain phosphorous and nitrogen that help the plant flourish. Wilson told the board that for now, sections of the lake including shoreline near the Whiteface Club and Echo Bay are not harboring milfoil. “But this is like a cancer,” he said. “It only gets worse if we don’t act immediately. And once we do act, we need to be vigilant and monitor the situation closely.” The Shoreowners Association first discovered milfoil several weeks ago. Wilson said

last night’s decision by the board to close the marina was the right thing to do. “I was gratified,” he said. “They did the right thing. From our position we’ve been dealing with this for a couple weeks now, so we know exactly what we’re dealing with. I think we had an opportunity to show the board how serious it was. Frankly, I think for the short period of time we’re talking about until we can get control of this, it’s the only prudent measure.” Wilson noted that Placid Lake doesn’t naturally promote a lot of biological growth. “We can no longer continue to believe this lake is exceptional and immune to the problems that plague lakes like Lake Flower and the Saranac Lakes,” he said. “We can not afford to let our guard down.” Randall said that although the launch site will be closed, contractors will have access to the marina while they remove the milfoil. “To some degree this is an accommodation to the contractor to get that done as quickly as we can,” he said. “I think we all hold our lakes and clear waters in very high regard and we look forward to getting this cleaned up as quickly as we can.” The board also requested that Village Attorney Janet Bliss draft a local law to designate Paradox Bay and the Lake Placid Village Marina a “no wake” zone. Motorboats can cause milfoil to fragment and spread. A public hearing will be scheduled for July 20 at 5:30 p.m. to discuss that proposed law. Wilson and the board noted that non-motorized boats will also be banned from the marina while crews work to remove the invasive plant.

‘Timbuctoo’ legends under fire ELIZABETHTOWN — On Thursday, July 23, social historian and author Amy Godine will lead a discussion exploring the legacy and legends surrounding the “scheme of justice and benevolence” of abolitionist Gerrit Smith. Behind the story of Smith’s effort to settle the Adirondacks with free black New Yorkers in 1846 and 1847 is the saga of the black settler-grantees who made these north woods their own. Sociologist Norm Dann, archeologist Hadley Kurzcek-Aaron, independent historian Don Papson, and novelist/filmmaker Libby MacDonald will talk about how their particular disciplines or interests have enabled them to tackle this history anew, and to challenge stubborn assumptions about the mysterious “Smith Lands.” The discussion will take place at the Old County Courthouse 7 p.m. It is sponsored by John Brown Lives! and is free and open to the public.

Fathers’ roles changing


ust a few weeks ago, families across America celebrated Fathers Day. Father’s Day was not always celebrated in America. Most historians agree that Sonora Louise Smart Todd is responsible for the holiday we now celebrate As Fathers Day. Mrs. Todd had By Scot Hurlburt great affection for her father. He had fought in the Civil War and had singlehandedly raised a new born and five other children. His wife died during the birth of last child. It is believed that Mrs. Todd began her campaign for a national holiday honoring fathers in 1910. Father’s Day was not observed as an official national holiday until President Richard Nixon established it as a permanent national holiday in 1972. Mrs. Todd lived to see her wish fulfilled; she passed away in 1978 at the age of 96. Some say that it took so long to recognize father’s role in the family because mothers as often viewed as the primary caretaker of children. While my mother was my primary caretaker, I learned many important lessons from my father. I frequently injured myself and, in his own Spartan-like manner, he attempted to point out the error in my ways so that I might not repeat my mistake. One day I was barreling, full speed, down a hill on my bike and my chain came off. I flew head first over the handlebars. I had no shirt on, only shorts and I skinned my elbows, knees, back and chin. Covered in blood, I limped home. The first thing he said was, “go outside, your bleeding all over.” As he handed me an old towel, our eyes met. “You are ten years old, go clean yourself up with the garden hose.” I think I matured a little that day and my tendency to injure myself became much less frequent; a lesson was learned, finally. My role as a dad has been very different than that of my father. I was very involved in my daughter’s childcare. I changed diapers, bathed her and made those funny faces people make at babies. I played peek-a-boo over and over and over. I played Candy Land, participated in the cutting of Barbie’s hair and an occasional Barbie decapitation. Over the years I have watched the movies Cinderella, Ghost and Dirty Dancing so many times that I can recite much of the dialogue. “Nobody puts baby in the corner.” As the role of Dad has changed, some feel that the workplace has not allowed men to fully embrace their role as a parent. Now that the majority of women work, most contemporary men are actively involved in childcare and in running the home. All the major industrialized democracies of the world allow men paid, time off when a child is born. Paid childcare leave ranges from a high of 46 weeks in Sweden to a low of 15 weeks in Switzerland. Only the United States and Australia offer no mandated paid leave to new parents. Most of the European community believes that the “cost of unbounded children is too high.” There is compelling and largely undisputed evidence that the first months of life outside the womb are critical in the bonding of a child to its parents. Now, the U.S. House of Representatives has passed a bill that allows Federal employees to convert 4 weeks of the current unpaid 12 weeks of leave into paid leave. If the bill is passed into law, it will allow parents, including men, to take paid childcare leave. This bill only applies to Federal employees, about 2 perecnt of the workforce. Beyond the immediate impact of paid childcare leave, the bill may compel other parents to actively pursue paid childcare leave. Paid childcare leave would empower more parents to embrace their parental rights and obligations. Paid leave will come at a cost. Will that cost be greater than the cost of unbounded children as the Europeans believe? Remember, all kids count.

Late blight alert T

here are two common diseases that get on tomatoes every year, early blight and septoria leaf spot. These are troublesome and in some years they can really reduce your yield, but they’re something we can live with. Late blight is a different story. This fungus disease affects tomatoes and potatoes and is seen only rarely this far north. It doesn’t survive our winters so it either blows in or is carried in on infested plants. We haven’t seen late blight in area since one summer in the late 1990’s. Unfortunately, late blight is here now. We’re asking anyone growing tomatoes or potatoes to be on the lookout. As soon as you notice any large, brown patches on your plant leaves or stems, please bring a sample to any Extension office. Enclose it in a plastic bag and keep refrigerated if possible. This disease affects tomatoes, potatoes. It spreads very rapidly and will quickly jump from one garden to the neighbors’. The brown patches produce lots of spores that are blown by the wind and carried by rain. If one gardener

The couponer’s secret weapon: stockpiling By Jill Cataldo CTW Features


’ve got a secret. If you were to walk through my kitchen, nothing would seem out of the ordinary. My refrigerator is well stocked with food, as are my kitchen cabinets. It looks very much like I’d imagine your own kitchen looks. But take a look at my basement pantry, and prepare for a shock. The room looks like a small-scale supermarket. Stocked shelves line the walls. More than 30 boxes of brandname cereal will greet you, along with 20 bottles of apple juice. Towers of paper towels and toilet paper rolls reach toward the ceiling. There are so many packages of baby diapers in here that, stacked, they’d completely conceal the pantry door. And the shelf of household cleaners – everything from furniture polish and dishwasher detergent to glass cleaner and carpet sprays – will leave you wondering why my house isn’t spotless. (Hey, I do have three kids who make it their daily mission to undermine my housecleaning efforts!) People’s reactions to my pantry never cease to amuse me. They ask, “Are you worried about a food shortage?” “Who will eat all of this?” “Did you buy all of this at one time?” But once I explain stockpiling most people begin to get it. Wouldn’t you buy a lot of cereal if it were only 6 cents a box? How many bottles of apple juice would you buy at 25 cents a bottle? Both of these products have a long shelf life. And my family of five goes through a lot of cereal and juice, among many other things. Stockpiling and couponing go hand-in-hand. When you stockpile groceries, you buy as many units as you can afford to buy, using as many of the coupons that you have collect-

Regulations From page 1 “The public is strongly encouraged to also contact APA staff for regulatory advice before constructing, replacing or expanding shoreline structures,” he said. APA and DEC staff can help property owners determine if permits or variances are necessary before construction. Staff can also help to design environmentally friendly structures. Violations of shoreline regulations could cost property owners thousands of dollars in fines, Winchell added. “The maximum fine is $10,000,” he said. “Misdemeanor violations can also result in up to one year in jail.” The DEC recently identified preferred methods for shoreline stabilization. These methods include the use of vegetation plantings to stabilize the shoreline and reduce stormwater runoff, as well as bioengineering – which utilizes natural materials like rocks and logs to correct shoreline problems.

While a home garden can lose a few tomato plants, our growers with hundreds of plants will be severely affected by this disease. Infested plants need to be removed from the garden in a plastic bag, don’t try composting them or leave them in a pile.

And yet, it makes good financial sense to do so. Grocery stores price all items on a revolving cycle. Everything in the store reaches its lowest price point just once in a three-month period. A Super-Couponer waits until the price of a certain item is at its lowest By Jill Cataldo point, then buys enough to last his or her household for the next three months. The Super-Couponer saves money compared to the shopper who buys only enough of a sale item to get through one week, then returns later to buy more of the same item when it is not on sale. Twenty bottles of apple juice may seem like a lot to buy at one time, and it is. But at a quarter a bottle, those 20 bottles cost me just $5. The juice’s regular price? $2.89. So, for less than the cost of two regular-priced bottles, I bought 20. If I bought what I thought our family would drink in a week during the apple juice sale, I’d leave the store with just three bottles. Once those bottles were gone, I’d be back at the store paying $2.89 apiece for the next three. Instead, I stockpile. The quantity I bought will last our family about seven weeks, and we’ve saved a lot of money, too. Stockpiling is a simple concept. Once you start, you’ll wonder why you didn’t shop this way before. Of course, you may also wonder where all your pantry space went. Next week I’ll share some of my stockpiling tips with you. © CTW Features

Court upholds rezoning for ACR project By Chris Morris TUPPER LAKE — A mid-level state appeals court has upheld the town of Tupper Lake’s decision not to conduct an environmental review when it rezoned 6,200 acres of land around the former Big Tupper Ski Area for the Adirondack Club and Resort project. The ruling, barring another appeal, removes what would have been a time-consuming and costly hurdle for developers of the massive resort project, which has been in the works for more than five years. The case dates to 2006, when the town of Tupper Lake voted to rezone the acreage around Big Tupper as a planned development district without a full environmental review. At the time, town officials said that since the Adirondack Park Agency was involved, the resort project would be subject to a stringent review process and that a secondary town review would be redundant. That led to a lawsuit by environmentalists and neighbors who oppose the resort. They claimed that the town was required, under the state Environmental Quality Review Act or SEQR, to undertake an environmental review. In 2007, State Supreme Court Judge David Demarest rejected the suit, filed by the Association for the Protection of the Adirondacks and others. The association then filed an appeal. But the Appellate Division of State Supreme Court, in a ruling issued last Thursday, rejected the appeal and upheld the town’s decision not to conduct a full SEQR review. The ruling notes that the APA has “comprehensive jurisdiction” of the project and that its environmental regulations pre-date SEQR and are much more stringent. Mandat-

ing a full SEQR review “would be burdensome and duplicative with no foreseeable benefit,” the judges found. David Johnson is the Town of Tupper Lake’s attorney. He said the decision to dismiss the appeal was the correct one. “The Adirondack Park Agency does a thorough environmental review of a project of this type,” Johnson said. “And it was very clear in the law that there was no need to go duplicate that proceeding by going through the DEC for the same review.” David Gibson, executive director of the Association for the Protection of the Adirondacks, said his group is disappointed with the decision. “We accept the decision. They took a long time to make the decision, so they clearly considered this carefully,” he said. “But we are disappointed with the decision. We haven’t had a chance to thoroughly go over the decision, so we’ll have more to say about it later in the summer.” Last week's ruling was also a loss for the state Department of Environmental Conservation, which had issued a court brief last year in support of the environmental group’s appeal. While the agency didn’t take sides on the project, DEC officials had argued that the town board failed to “take a hard look” at potential environmental impacts when it approved the rezoning. There was no immediate comment July 2 from DEC or the Attorney General’s Office, which represented the state in the case. Tupper Lake Supervisor Roger Amell said he was pleased with the decision and hopes the project can continue to move ahead. “Of course I’m happy to see the results,” he said. “It just goes to show the justice system works. Hopefully now we can keep moving forward and get this project rolling.”

A lengthy attempt at mediation between Adirondack Club and Resort developer Michael Foxman and the project’s opponents came to an end last week. An adjudicatory hearing with the Adirondack Park Agency is the next step, but it could be six to eight months before that begins. Foxman praised the appellate court ruling. If a local environmental review was required, it would have been “an absurd duplication of expense and effort,” he said. “I think the decision is very significant because it continues our momentum,” he said. “There was never a question in my mind or the attorney’s minds about our ability to win, we felt confident that the town was right. I think that it was simply another matter of the opponents attempting to prolong and waste money – ours and I guess their contributors – in an effort to stop the project.” The ruling came amid news that a local group in Tupper Lake is working to try and get part of the former Big Tupper Ski Area open this winter. Representatives of ARISE – Adirondack Residents Intent on Saving their Economy – are hoping to get the T-bar up and running. A ski lift company was in Tupper Lake this week to conduct an inspection. Michael Foxman said opening Mt. Morris for skiing is the right thing to do. “I think it’s a wonderful idea and I hope we can make this happen for the community,” he said.

Visit to France strengthens ties By Matt Bosley SARANAC LAKE — A group of Saranac Lake residents recently had the chance to experience Europe first-hand while strengthening ties with a kindred French village. From June 19-25, a delegation from the Sister Cities Association of Saranac Lake visited Entrains-sur-Nohain, a small village in the Burgundy region of France that has been designated as Saranac Lake’s sister city. The delegation was headed by Ned Long, president of the association, his wife, Joyce, and Jim and Carol Edmonds. The Longs and Edmonds had hosted exchange visitors from Entrains during the last exchange in August 2007. The delegation was received by Kenneth and Noelle Weissberg, who embody the tie between the two villages. Kenneth’s father, a World War II veteran, moved to Saranac Lake after the war. Growing up, Kenneth often went back and forth between Saranac Lake and Burgundy, and still does to this day. Delegates stayed at the Weissberg’s home, La Maison des Adirondacks. A Summer Solstice Music Festival was held in honor of the visit. On June 21, a reception hosted by the Weissbergs was attended by about 30 residents of Entrains. Words of welcome, cultural exchange and friendship that are the basis for the Sister Cities movement were spoken. Long greeted the people gathered and read a proclamation of ongoing friendship from Saranac Lake Mayor Tom Michael. Long and Weissberg also met with the mayor of Entrains and presented him with the village flag of Saranac Lake. The delegation was able to spend several days visiting regional religious and historic sites, local wineries and restaurants, chatteaus and other places of interest. The group spent three days in Paris on their way back to Saranac Lake. Saranac Lake Area Chamber of Commerce director Sylvie Nelson said another exchange is being planned for Aug. 21 that will bring visitors from Entrains and Ste-Agathe to Saranac Lake for yet another exchange of culture.

Mid summer trout most anglers can achieve when trolling with monofiliment line. In such conditions, many anglers decide to target other species such as bass or pike. Trout diehards also have the option of chasing rainbows, a species that is more tolerant of warmer waters and brighter, sunny conditions. Rainbows usually respond well to flies, lures or spoons presented in the upper levels of the water column. These fish seem to be particularly fond of flashy ‘Christmas trees’ or ‘Cowbells’ tipped with a worm or a fly. However, for brook trout enthusiasts, the arrival of midsummer temperatures Lightweight and portable, the new breed of inflatable canoes shouldn’t signal the end of have made it easy for anglers to enjoy angling opportunities on the season. It simply requires the many high elevation ponds of the Adirondacks. a change of venue. ith the heart of the summer seaRather than dredging the depths of their son looming in the weeks ahead, usual spring and fall trout ponds, anglers temperatures are certain to inshould consider the opportunities available crease.

Additionally, most of these ponds are feet. This range is well below the level that spring fed or filled by cold, well oxygenated,


Consider the number of water bodies included in just a few of the park’s numerous Wilderness Areas, a partial listing includes the Pharaoh Lake Wilderness (39), High Peaks (112), Dix Mountain (12), Sentinel Range (5), Five Ponds (99), Hoffman Notch (8), Blue Ridge (19) and the Siamese Ponds (33). A sampling of the more remote waters would include Round Pond, Dix Pond, Puffer Pond, Peaked Mountain Pond, Moose Pond, Latham Pond, Tom Peck Pond, Coldspring Pond, Giant’s Washbowl Pond, Bartlett Pond, Livingston Pond, Cooper Kiln Pond, Warren Pond, Owen Pond, Copperas Pond, Winch Pond, Dawson Pond, Brueyer Pond, Beaver Pond, Little Ampersand Pond, Nate Pond, Curtis Pond, Dog Pond, Grizzle Ocean, Bear Pond, Beaver Meadow Pond, Mountain Pond and Lost Pond. These are just a few of the stocked, trout waters, however there are many more. As beavers continue to build dams on backwoods brooks, the number and size of potential trout waters continues to increase every year. An indication of this trend is evidenced in the most recent Global Information Systems survey of the Adirondacks. Surveys have revealed that the Adirondack Park currently contains over 11,101 bodies of water that measure over one acre in size. Although I’ll likely never have the opportunity to hit them all, it will remain a challenge to fish as many as I can. As the lottery advertisements proclaim, “Hey, you never know!”

mountain streams. I have discovered that, in general, the higher the elevation of the pond, the colder the water temperatures. I’ve also found that elevation is an important factor in determining angling pressure. The more difficult the access usually results in the fewer angler visits.

Accessibility is key On most remote waters, anglers casting from shore are at a a distinct disadvantage. Typically, these shorelines are littered with with dead and downed trees, which can prevent the landing of a big fish. It is also difficult to cast far enough to reach deeper waters where larger fish lurk. To avoid such issues, I prefer to use a good quality, inflatable raft. Although pack canoes have greatly diminished in weight over the years, they can be difficult or impossible to haul up steep mountain trails or through thick spruce and heavy blowdown. Rafts can easily be condensed into a backpack. Bellyboats are a good compromise, but I far prefer a raft which permits an angler above water casting platform. Belly boats or float tubes also require the fisherman to wear waders. With their legs dangling in the water, anglers stir up the water or get stuck in the muck. Avoid the cheap, “pool toy” type rafts as they just don’t hold up. I use a raft that’s equipped with several air chambers and oar locks. I find it to be an ideal vessel for the smaller, more remote and inaccessible waters. Often, for those willing to put in the effort, it’s possible to have a pond all to yourself.

Which way to the water? The Adirondack region is graced with a multitude of high elevation ponds. And due to the extensive restoration efforts implemented by the NYSDEC, many of these waters retain healthy populations of brook trout. The more remote waters which are stocked annually by helicopter can be found listed on DEC's annual stocking reports.

National Sports Acedemy goes green

Adirondack Public Observatory welcomes David Levy

LAKE PLACID — National Sports Academy (NSA) celebrated its third Annual Earth Day on May 13. Designed to promote awareness and action throughout the NSA community, the event was organized by a group of students and faculty led by teacher Kelly Carter. The entire Earth Day activities were carbon neutral. To offset the environmental impact of travelling to Tupper Lake and more, NSA partnered with the Adirondack Council to retire twelve tons of carbon dioxide from the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) program, the nation's first multi-state effort to make measurable reductions in carbon emissions. The event also included a screening of the optimistic film, The Next Industrial Revolution, which highlights the work of architect William McDonough. McDonough has helped business transform themselves to work with nature and enhance profitability. Students and faculty also took time to celebrate the work of the Sustainability and Stewardship Council, NSA’s environmental action organization. The school’s Business Math class offered a presentation of NSA’s energy usage over the past three years. As an ongoing effort to curb its environmental impact, NSA announced that its dining room will go trayless. By eliminating trays NSA follows the lead of hundreds of colleges and universities and will significantly reduce food waste and water consumption. NSA will also join the nearly 1,700 schools around the world who are a part of the Green Schools Alliance, a network of K-12 public, private and independent schools uniting to take action on climate change and the environment. NSA is only the second New York state school outside the

New York City Metropolitan Area to join the GSA. The other, North Country School, is also in Lake Placid. Students were afforded a trip to the Wild Center in Tupper Lake, which included an exploration of the natural history museum as well as lessons on radio telemetry and green construction methods. A menu prepared by Chef Ward Pratt included a vegetarian lunch, because a vegetarian diet is more environmentally sustainable than a meat-based one. Recognizing local food as more environmentally sustainable, dinner featured NSA’s first 100-mile meal, in which all of the main courses included ingredients raised by local farmers. On May 20, the NSA community of students, coaches and faculty partnered with the Lake Placid Beautification Association to clean up approximately ten miles of Lake Placid roads in an effort to help keep Lake Placid beautiful.

TUPPER LAKE — The Adirondack Public Observatory will present David H. Levy, a comet discoverer who discovered Shoemaker Levy 9, the comet that collided with Jupiter in 1994. Levy will be present for a lecture and book signing at The Wild Center ’s Flammer Theater, Thursday, July 23 at 6 p.m. Seating is limited. For more information, visit
