Palmer has three-year plan for budget By Keith Lobdell

Prevention Team hosts conference ELIZABETHTOWN — With a little pain now, Essex County Manager Daniel Palmer believes he can present a budget that consistently meets the state’s two-percent tax levy cap starting in 2015. Getting there will not be easy, though. “We are in a position where the budget has become so lean the following year is a problem,” Palmer said during a special meeting of the Board of Supervisors Nov. 7. “We are looking at a three year plan to balance the budget so we can deliver a budget that does not overly rely on the use of fund balance and can be within the cap.” Under Palmer ’s plan, the proposed 2013 tax levy would be $20,576,274, a 26percent increase from 2012 ($16,276,443). Palmer said that the estimated tax rate would increase from $2.42

LAKE PLACID — While businesses and retailers hope for a successful Black Friday, the Olympic Regional Development Authority is banking on a White Friday. With low mightly temperatures and plenty of preparation, snow guns have been

firing white sheets of manmade granular onto the slopes at Whiteface Mountain in Wilmington, Gore Mountain in North Creek and Belleayre Mountain in the Catskills. ORDA spokesman Jon Lundin said they are hopeful that Whiteface and Gore will be open for skiing Friday, Nov. 23, weather permitting.

“We have had some really ideal conditions so far for snowmaking,” Lundin said. “We have built up some snow on the Lower Valley of Whiteface. The weather has been more cooperative this year.” Whiteface has also expanded their snowmaking abilities. Snowmaking has been added to the Hoyt’s High Trail, a new Pisten-

bully 600 W groomer and several new low-energy snowmaking guns have also been purchased. There have also been renovations to Base Camp Market (formerly the Base Camp Café) and Cloudspin Lounge, both located in the mountain’s base lodge.

Library group seeks space

November 17, 2012

Hooper honored for awareness campaign

By Keith Lobdell

By Keith Lobdell

LEWIS — A group of community members interested in creating a public library in the town of Lewis held their first meeting recently, and finding space was the dominant issue. The group met Oct. 24 to start discussions about the possibility of creating a library. Member Kathy Linker said finding a space to house the library was at the top of the agenda. “At the top of their list is the need for a space,” she said. “The Lewis library team envisions not only a place to check out books but a library full of imagination, education and services to enrich the lives of Lewis residents.” Linker said that while they will continue to look for space for a library facility, they were also looking to start small with the help of a suggestion from the Clinton-Essex-Franklin Library System. “They offered to support a book cart set up similar to the one they did with Newcomb after the Bookmobile was taken off the road,” Linker said. Elizabeth Rogers of CEFLS was on hand at the meeting, and answered questions on the step-by-step process to lead them from a book cart to a fully chartered library, according to Linker. Linker said that the team is reaching out to Lewis residents to help them find space in a building in the hamlet. For more information, contact Linker at 873-6493 or Suzie Dubay at 873-6593. The next meeting of the library committee will take place Nov. 15, 6 p.m. at the Congregational Church in Lewis.

generated a great, grassroots campaign,” Terbeek said. “I am confident that was part of bringing about the ban at the state level.” In receiving the award, Hooper thanked some of the people who had helped him through the county. “I was just one person in a large group that worked on this,” Hooper said. “Kristy Sprague and Mike Mascarenas we big supporters and helped me out a lot. We all had a huge impact.” Terbeek said that the determination

and commitment to the campaign demonstrated leadership from a high school student that he found impressive. “He is a young man with a plan and a vision for the future,” Terbeek said. Hooper said that he just wanted to help bring awareness of a problem to his peers. “I wanted to help try and stop something that was becoming a real issue in our community,” Hooper said.

LAKE PLACID — An Elizabethtown-Lewis Central School senior was honored for his efforts to help fight against synthetic drugs in Essex County. The Northern Tier Providers Coalition presented Brody Hooper with their Volunteer Award during its 15th Annual Awards Banquet Nov. 7 at the Crowne Plaza in Lake Placid. Hooper was presented with the award by Doug Terbeek, Executive Director of the Prevention Team of Essex County, Inc., and outgoing president of the coalition, for “advocacy efforts in leading (his) peers in the prevention of chemical dependency in (his) community.” “Brody is the first student to receive this award,” Terbeek said. “His PowerPoint on K-2 and synthetic marijuana really generated and outpouring of interest from his peers and from the community.” Terbeek talked about the work that Hooper did with the county, working with the county’s Bringing Everyone’s Strengths Together (BEST) Committee to spread the word on the dangerous of these drugs to local schools. “Brody made presentations with people from the county and this really

Terbeek ends term as Northern Tier Providers Coalition head By Keith Lobdell LAKE PLACID — After two years as the top man for a seven-county coalition, Doug Terbeek relinquished his gavel as president of the Northern Tier Providers. “Just being involved at this level at this time is important because there are huge changes in the way health care reform will impact people and where our services fit,” Terbeek said. “My goal was to keep our members up to speed on these reforms and how they should be planning for the future.” Terbeek is the executive director of the Prevention Team of Essex County, Inc., which provides school-based substance abuse prevention education, counseling and community awareness programs. Terbeek served two years as president of the organization, made up of chemical prevention, treatment and recovery providers in Essex, Clinton, Franklin, Hamilton, Jefferson, Lewis and St. Lawrence counties. The organization will now be led by Tina Buckley, the director of Rose Hill Residential Rehabilitation Services in Massena, during the annual North Tier conference at the Crowne Plaza in Lake Placid Nov. 7. Terbeek said that with national and state regulations changing, the organization works to keep their services and value to the local communities at the forefront of provider conversations.

“We are always in the process of trying to carve out a niche that is not yet defined,” Terbeek said. Among Terbeek’s last duties as president was to welcome people to the conference, which he said was held on his “home field” and to present the Volunteer Award to Elizabethtown-Lewis senior Brody Hooper during the 15th annual Northern Tier Awards Banquet.

Money starting to flow out for Essex County communications system By Keith Lobdell ELIZABETHTOWN — The new Essex County Communications system is to the point where checks need to be written. During its Nov. 5 regular board meeting, the Essex County Board of Supervisors passed several resolutions to award bids and proposals to several companies to work on the new system. “I see that the money is starting to move at this point," said Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafava, adding that he wanted to know when the county would look to move a bond resolution “At what point do we move into our bond issue?” he said. “Rates are really good right now.” “We are hoping that by the end of next summer or fall, the project will be mostly

Budget Continued from page 1 per assessed $1,000 property value to $3.10, a difference of 68-cents or $68 on a home assessed at $100,000. In 2014, the estimated tax levy would increase 15.56percent to $23,778,411, with the tax rate increasing 48cents to $3.58, meaning a $48 increase on an assessed $100,000 home. Palmer said that 2015 would be the first year that the county would be within the tax levy cap, which he estimated would be around three percent when adding in exemptions. The levy would rise to $24,491,763, with an estimated tax rate of $3.68, up 10 cents from 2014, causing a $10 property tax increase to a home assessed at $100,000.

completed and then we will move into that next step,” County Manager Daniel Palmer said. Palmer said the county is currently looking at project costs around $10.5 million, which includes the original project to replace the radio system and now includes purchasing new equipment for local first responders. “We are about $500,000 over our target right now,” Palmer said. “It includes the $1.2 million which we paid for the local radios for the local stations which was not included in the original plan. If we had not paid for those, we would still be under the project budget.” Palmer said that a grant for $3.7 million could also get them below the $10 million threshold. “If we get this grant, the county may have to only bond for $6 or $7 million instead of

Palmer said the plan was created to solve the issue the county had with annually using fund balance to pay for fixed costs, what he called, “the gap.” “If you do not stick to this plan or something similar, then we are going to have more troubles as we go on from here,” Palmer said. “If you do not address the gap, it will become worse every year.” In the three year plan, Palmer said the county would use $4,350,000 in fund balance for 2013, dropping to $1 million in 2014 and none in 2015, leaving the county with an anticipated fund balance of $5 million. Palmer said that a cushion is needed in the fund balance account to pay for municipal tax warrants. “Last year, we paid,

schools, towns and districts $4.3 million to cover unpaid tax bills,” Palmer said. “If you have less then $5 million in fund balance to cover that, then you are going to be in a position where you have to borrow from the bank. We were there before and we don’t want to go back.” Palmer said the county basically had to make up for years of having zero and minimal increases to the tax levy, which may be a hard sell. “The overuse of the fund balance has ultimately been to the advantage of the taxpayers,” he said. “But, they don’t care what you did for them yesterday, they care what you will do for them tomorrow. However, we have to correct the things that have happened for almost 10 years now. We paid

$10 million,” Palmer said. County Attorney Daniel Manning said he felt it was in the best interests of the county to wait before bonding until the project was completed. “You do not have to, but it would be wise to wait until the end so you know what you are bonding out for,” Manning said. Among the resolutions: •Infinigy Engineering was the lowest bidder and will do the civil work for the radio project at an amount of $666,600 funded by the radio project fund. •An RFP for radio equipment shelters was awarded to United Concrete Products in the amount of $390,204.70. •Riznick Construction was awarded a bid for telecommunications shelter alterations on Mount Defiance in the amount of $216,374. •Supervisors authorized the advanced for costs with our ‘savings account’ and now we do not have the revenue coming in to keep going that way.” Palmer said that his plan was based on several assumptions, the biggest being the pending sale of the Horace Nye Nursing Home. “If the home is not sold, the plan doesn’t work,” he said, adding that retirement rates, state funding streams and the board requesting the use of more fund balance could all lead to the plan being upset. “If the board uses more fund balance in any one of these three years, then the plan does not work,” he said. “My intent is to be at three percent in 2015 and have a balanced budget. This plan is controlled by this board. Ultimately, this is based on the people I am

talking to here.” Wilmington Supervisor Randy Preston said he agreed with Palmer ’s assessments, but that more needed to be done to bring down current costs. “There is no easy fix whether you lay off 100 people or go up 26-percent in tax levy,” Preston said. “We do have one of the lowest tax rates in Essex County, but there are factors. I do not know of anybody whose salary has gone up as much as their county, town and school taxes, if they were even able to stay level. “I don’t think there are any easy answers,” Preston continued. “In fact, I think that this is going to get bloody.

on this and they are not going to be popular and as painful as it is going to be, we need to make some serious cuts.” “I do not think that there is anyone in this room that wants to see a 26 percent tax levy increase, but you are going to have to either raise taxes or cut services,” Moriah Supervisor and budget liaison Tom Scozzafava said. Keene Supervisor Bill Ferebee said he wanted people to know that continuing to use fund balance was not the answer. “If we continue to do that at the county or in our towns, we are going to run out,” he said. “It is going to hurt us all because one day the bank is going to call.” Scozzafava said that along with the three year plan, he would present a budget for 2012 that fell within the tax cap. Palmer later replied by saying that in order to do that would mean either the use of $8.3 million in fund balance or the elimination of approximately 75 jobs. “I do not think that you could meet the federal or state mandates for delivery of service if you cut 75 people,” Palmer said. “These 75 people that would be cut do not come from another planet or somewhere else,” Scozzafava added. “These people are also our constituents.” Board Chairman and Jay Supervisor Randy Douglas said that the process and meetings would continue.

Valley News Editorial

Thanks for neighbors, small towns


few days before Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, devastating homes and businesses in several states, there was a disaster in the tiny Adirondack hamlet of Bakers Mills, just south of North Creek. The community response to both crises was uplifting, and it left us thankful for living in a, Adirondack small town. In the early morning hours of Saturday, Oct. 27, Bruce and Amy Cleveland’s house in Bakers Mills was razed by a fire. By some miracle, they had left home an hour earlier to go to the Glens Falls Hospital emergency room. When they arrived back in Bakers Mills, their home was gone. They lost everything. On Oct. 29 and 30, Hurricane Sandy ripped into the East Coast, with New Jersey, New York City and Long Island taking the brunt of the winds and floodwaters. Many lost everything. We continue to hear stories of Adirondack residents traveling south to the greater New York City area to help with the recovery, including firefighters, police officers and business owners. A nationwide relief effort was set up to help the people who lost property during Hurricane Sandy. It seems do this for strangers not just in America but around the world who need our help from natural disasters. Yet it was Bruce and Amy Cleveland’s personal disaster that reminded us that there are people in our own towns, our own region, who also need help. And that help came. The Clevelands’ friends, family and neighbors in the town of Johnsburg have set up a recovery fund for them, and they held a benefit on Sunday, Nov. 11 at the J&J Foxx Lair Tavern in Bakers Mills. It was a resounding success. People donated food, items for the raffle and auction, and music. The tavern’s manager, Joelene Slater, co-organized the event with Nancy and Bert Heckett from the Wevertown Country Store. The Cleveland benefit was a classic example of neighbors helping neighbors, and it seems there’s a culture of giving in the town of Johnsburg. The J&J Foxx Lair Tavern regularly holds benefits, including the Halloween Bash for the North Country Hardship Fund, founded by Wayno Bukovinsky, another local resident. In the spring of 2008, Wayno was in a

coma after a serious motorcycle accident. Airlifted to Albany Medical Center, his prognosis, including recovery from traumatic brain injury, was bleak. Soon afterward, there was a widespread effort to help with family and medical costs. “The North Country Community rallied behind my family,” he said. “Fundraisers were coordinated by childhood friends, fellow firefighters, co-workers and people I had never met before.” And now Wayno’s paying it forward. After recovering, even in a wheelchair, he set up the North Country Hardship Fund to help neighbors in need throughout the region. In August, their Wayne Stock V benefit concert at the Ski Bowl Park in North Creek raised $22,000 for the Fund, which provides relief to families suffering a tragedy in Warren, Essex, Hamilton, Saratoga and Washington counties. It’s this kind of pay-it-forward attitude in small Adirondack towns that makes us thankful. Whether we know them or not, our neighbors are willing to help in times of tragedy, and they treat everyone as though they’re family. Tragedy can strike anytime, and it’s a blessing to know that people like Wayno and Tammy Bukovinsky and businesses like the J&J Foxx Lair Tavern and Wevertown Country Store are here to help. Yet it’s not only disasters that cause distress in our neighbors’ lives. There are people who need our help every day, with clothing, food and fuel. We should also find time to help them as we look to help others in far-away countries. So, if you haven’t had a chance to help a neighbor this holiday season, please consider donating to a local charity or food bank in your hometown. The North Country Hardship Fund could certainly use the help. So could the Clevelands; send donations to Community Bank, Main Street, North Creek, NY 12853 c/o the Cleveland Fire Fund.

Our Nation is at a Crossroads


ith the election now behind us our nation is either poised to move forward or is stuck fast in the mess that has plagued us over the past four years. We can assume from the results of the presidential election that approximately 51 percent of the country believes we are on the road to recovery and bright days are ahead. The other 48 percent of those participating in the recent election believe the country is severely broken, lacks the leadership needed to correct the problems and believes very troubled days are ahead. Obviously we are a nation where the majority rules, but we’ve become a nation of winners and when winning at all cost is the primary objective it tends to leave ill will in its wake. While no one wants to end up on the losing side of a hard fought battle, what I hear most disturbing from those on the losing side is a loss of faith in our nation’s principles more so than just a bitter defeat. When President Obama was elected in 2008, those who chose not to vote for him were at least optimistic that he would live up to the words of his campaign, bring the parties together, reduce the unemployment rate and the deficit and bring about a needed change in the way the country had been functioning over the previous administration. Unfortunately, throughout this campaign President Obama took a different approach with his reelection using terms like “redistribution,” “revenge,” and drew lines around race, gender, sexual orientation, and age. Where most presidents spoke about motivational achievements and encouraging goals, President Obama spoke about entitlements, those who don’t share with others and discouraging small business job providers. Clearly the last four years have seen a major shift in the attitude and expectations people have with regards to their lives and the position government seeks to have in those lives. We’re moving from a nation where John Kennedy challenged us… not to ask what our country can do for us but what we can do for our country to an Obama second term where we should be asking the country to step in and right the inequities through a leveling of the playing field. Many nations have tried this approach and many nations have failed. When the

able bodied population of this nation have been empowered and motivated to make things happen on their own Dan Alexander we’ve seen Thoughts from Behind the Pressline growth in all forms. When the population becomes complacent and lacks the opportunity for great personal growth the bottom line motivation becomes hollow, and the risk is no longer worth the effort required. We can not allow the latter sentiment to take hold. When the risk takers, the motivated small entrepreneurs and young dreamers just starting out in life become disillusioned and lose faith that the realization of their dreams is no longer in their hands a fear sets in and takes hold. The fear that what made our country the great economic engine that drove the world is now slowing down is both frightening and disheartening. It’s seen as more than just a failed election it’s a stark realization that our way of life is about to change and there may be little anyone can do to alter what is about to take place. The nation’s course now appears to be set. We can not afford four more years of stagnate government but we’ve essentially sent the same players back to Washington who have accomplished little over the past four years. We can not afford rising costs, increased unemployment, higher deficits and further grid lock. So we must have faith that our great nation will persevere and not allow a process of social reengineering to dampen the capitalistic spirit that has proven so successful over the years. Both must coexist and so it’s time for both sides to unite, address the issues facing the country without further gridlock, with a spirit of cooperation and resolve to maintain a national attitude where personal responsibility and self reliance are still valued over all else. Time will tell what the future holds but none of us can lose faith in a country that has given us so much and yet much more is still expected for the generations that follow.

Our pets are family, too

Toy drive started To the Valley News: The sixth Annual Holiday Toy Drive (Sponsored by M&M Diner/Au Sable Forks) is in full swing and I am seeking the kindness of the North Country community in helping me make a happy holiday for children/teenagers who are less fortunate. Economic times continue to be difficult for many in our community so it's always an honor to have members and businesses play a role in spreading Christmas cheer. That being said, at this time, toys (or monetary donations) for boys & girls are needed ( and greatly appreciated. For teenagers (Up to the age of 18 years), monetary donations would be the best way to make a donation as their gifts are more selective than children. Rolls of wrapping paper, tags, tape and bows are needed. The support toward the Annual Holiday Toy Drive has received for the past five years has been overwhelming and I wish to thank everyone in advance who is able to contribute a gift or monetary donation in making a child's Christmas much brighter. PLEASE NOTE: Please send me a private message or use my contact information provided below to make a donation or request a confidential application. For those requesting an application to receive gifts, you must reside in the Town of Jay or Black Brook and are not permitted to be combined with other available local charitable programs. Final date applications will be accepted: Dec. 16, 2012 at 9 p.m. at M&M Diner. Pick up date for families to be determined.

Smokeout set To the Valley News: Tobacco use is the most preventable cause of disease and premature death in the United States, yet 45 million (about one in every five) Americans still smoke cigarettes. This is why it’s important to spread the word and get our loved ones to quit smoking. The third Thursday in November every year


is The Great American Smokeout (GASO), which inspires and encourages smokers to quit. Nov. 15 marks The American Cancer Society’s (ACS) 37th GASO. This event gives people an opportunity to make a plan to quit smoking or allows them to plan in advance and quit smoking on this day. The Colleges Against Cancer club (CAC) at SUNY Plattsburgh works throughout the year to fight against cancer. Getting involved with GASO and making a plan to quit smoking is one easy way to fight back against this disease. According to the American Cancer Society’s Tobacco Information and Fact Sheet, nearly 3,400 non-smoking adults die of lung cancer every year, simply from being exposed to secondhand smoke. On top of this, almost 46,000 non-smoking adults die from heart disease due to breathing in secondhand smoke. CAC is teaming up with the Adirondack Tobacco Free Network (ATFN) to create new policies that will help communities become tobacco-free. The number of deaths that occur every year from tobacco is the reason why we are urging school officials and lawmakers to create smoke-free campuses.

ur pets are so important to us and give rise to great expressions of emotion and love. One writer wrote, “My dog is not my whole life, my dog just made my life whole.” Another wrote, “It is no accident that God spelled backwards is dog.” Anyone who is a pet owner knows where these powerful words come from; they are KidsByCount Scot Hurlburt inspired by the pets that give so much to their families. The unconditional love and affection that our pets give us is priceless. Our pets also help to raise our children and to teach them important lessons about life. We had a cranky Tom cat that would go out every night in his younger days to fight and make those strange cat fight noises. My wife tried to interfere with his going out one time and paid the price. I used to try to sit by him and he was intolerant of being petted, his back feet would come up and he would lightly bite to say, “go away.” Incredibly, there were pictures of the old cat draped over my daughters shoulder or around her waist. There were also pictures of the surly old man in hats and baby clothes; to my daughter he was kind, loving and very tolerant. He was our cranky old man until he was 16 years old. To know the love of a pet is to know the love of someone that loves you just as you are, in fact, they think that you are awesome just the way you are. Our pets don’t remember when we are moody or cranky; my old golden retriever Jazz would look at me as if to say, “This too will pass.” Our pets take every occasion to greet us with enthusiasm and joy every time we come home even if we have only been gone a few hours. While my daughter was growing up we had two golden retrievers at home, Jazz and Rooney. Jazz was always calm and wise even as a puppy. Jazz never chewed things or acted in those wild puppy ways, that was Rooney. So great was his zeal for chewing that upon returning home one day when Rooney was a puppy, he had chewed a hole through a

pumpkin pine door that was original to my old house big enough to get his head through. Many shoes fell prey to his penchant for chewing. Sadly, Rooney had cancer and at five years old he died. It was a sad day for us and my daughter learned something about grieving during this period as she loved Rooney as we all did. Our cherished pets leave us and it helps us to realize how important every day is with our loved ones human or pet. Our pets also provide many smiles, cute pictures and laughter as they express their individual personalities within our families. Jazz, a golden retriever and water dog, cannot swim, when first we saw her flailing wildly in the water, it both a humorous and curious site. Jazz never goes into water above her chest. Our pets teach us that getting old does not diminish your value and in fact, age makes you more important. My old dog Jazz has trouble getting up sometimes now; still, whenever my wife or I come home, she greets us with an excited body shaking welcome. Jazz has those brown, sad and wise eyes. Sometimes she sits near me and near my wood stove and if I don’t pet her in short order she looks right at me and barks as if to say, pet me. Then she moves her paw up and down, not to shake hands but rather to say, notice me please. Now as Jazz is declining, we take every opportunity to hug her and rub her old back to let her know that we honor what she has given our family. Jazz has helped us to be a family; she has modeled the behavior that most of us humans fall short of. Her face is almost completely white now and when she fixes her eyes upon you must go to her. Her familiar smell reminds me of home. She loves when you get down on the floor with her so you can put your head against hers and your arms around her neck. Jazz has always been a dog who wants to be with her family. She never wandered away from home even as a puppy and if a family member is around, there she is also. Jazz has been a constant reminder that being welcoming, kind, forgiving and loyal are ideals that we all should strive for. Alas, most of us are just humans with human frailties and short comings. Only our pets seem to be able to consistently rise to these highly prized character traits. Remember. All kids count. Reach the writer at

Forest ‘Dew Drop’ Joy to the Children benefit planned for 26th year Morgan, 90, passes SARANAC LAKE — Forest “Dew Drop” Morgan, Saranac Lake resident, passed away Saturday, Nov. 10. Mayor Clyde Rabideau said that Dew Drop had an influence on many people, including himself. “When I first moved to Saranac Lake, Dew Drop instantly treated me like family and told me many stories, getting me up to speed on the legends and lore of the community,” Rabideau said. “Stories he always had — most of them true — and smiles aplenty. He was a character in the best sense of t h e w o rd a n d h e h a d c h a r a c t e r, t h e ro c k - s o l i d kind that got him through a World War II prisoner of war camp and back home to raise a large and robust family and give so much life to Saranac Lake.” Morgan was a World War II veteran; bobsledder, Olympic team manager and member of the U.S. Bobsled board of directors; owner of the Dew Drop Inn on Broadway in Saranac Lake and bartender at the Lake Placid Lodge in 2000. Rabideau, in a statement, said Saranac had lost its “greatest icon.” “No other person was so emblematic of Saranac Lake’s zest for life, friendliness and loyalty,” Rabideau said. “Dew Drop Morgan was indeed Mr. Saranac Lake. On behalf of the village and the greater mournful community, I extend sorrow for this enormous loss to the Morgan family and our deepest condolences.”

Duprey wins re-election to 115th Assembly seat By Stephen Bartlett PLATTSBURGH — This was the nastiest race Republican Janet Duprey has ever participated in. She’s proud she kept it clean on her end. And ultimately, she won, securing another term in the 115th Assembly Seat. “Now it’s time to get this campaign behind me and get back to full time Assembly work,” Duprey said Tuesday night at the West Side Ballroom in Plattsburgh, headquarters for the Republicans on election night. A total of three candidates ran for the 115th Assembly Seat. Running were Duprey; Karen Bisso, a Plattsburgh City School teacher running as the Conservative Party candidate; and Democrat Timothy Carpenter, a City of Plattsburgh Councilor from

Ward 1. Duprey came under attack by opponents for retiring and also collecting a salary. She explained during the campaign that she put in 31 years in county government and earned her retirement, a decision she made to protect her family. She further pointed out that the law allows an individual to retire and hold an elected position. Duprey also came under fire for supporting gay marriage. She firmly believes gay marriage is a human rights issue and people are entitled to happiness with the person they love. She doesn’t understand how anyone can deny someone the opportunity to be happy with someone he or she loves and wants to share a life with while enjoying the same legal protections that are not available without a marriage. Duprey noted that the attacks against her began as soon as her opponent started campaigning. “It just kept going along that same tone,”

Duprey said. “Instead of what they were going to do, it was shots at me, and it was offensive.” She said 90 percent of the people she spoke with thanked her for remaining positive. Some days it would have been easier to take some of her own shots at her opponent, but she wanted her grandchild to know bullying does not work. “I don’t understand it,” Duprey said. “It was so negative.” She is eager to put the campaign behind her and get back to work. She looks forward to touring facilities such as schools and prisons again. Duprey believes she does everything she can to meet the needs of constituents who call her. She prides herself on being bipartisan. “I am proud of that.”Duprey looks forward to serving in the Assembly for another two years and said she loves the position. “I think we are able to do good things.”

Bevilacqua Continued from page 1 Bevilacqua fills the one-year unexpired term of former Supervisor Larry Miller, who resigned in the spring. At this time, he plans to run for re-election in the fall of 2013. “It was a good campaign,” Bevilacqua said. “We didn’t get sucked into any back and forth battles or anything. We just stuck to the message and I had a heck of a team behind me … and I think that’s how I came out on top.” As soon as the vote is certified, Bevilacqua will take office, and that could happen as early as next week, just in time for the Town Board’s Nov. 15 meeting. At that time, board members can appoint a person to fill Bevilacqua’s term until next fall, when the position will be up for election to fill his two-year unexpired term. Deputy Supervisor Barry DeFuria joked that the Nov. 15 agenda is all Bevilacqua’s. DeFuria took over the supervisor ’s duties when Miller resigned in the spring and is happy to hand them over to the newly elected supervisor. “Before I decided to run, I talked to Barry,” Bevilacqua said. “I’m sure I’m going to need some help in the beginning to work through some of the logistics of being supervisor.”

Photo by Andy Flynn The race for town supervisor was marked by a 10-day lull starting on Oct. 9, when Catillaz suspended active campaigning so he could deal with a serious family medical situation out of state. With a family member on his mind, there was no time or inclination to think about a campaign. The first debate scheduled for Oct. 16 was subsequently canceled.

Even after the announcement, Catillaz’s campaign signs remained intact around town and he stayed on the ballot while he took some time off to deal with the family crisis. Then on Oct. 19, Catillaz jumped back into the race with enthusiasm as things on the home front had quieted down and he was ready to ramp up his campaign.

Soon after the initial results were announced at the Town Hall, Catillaz congratulated Bevilacqua. “I think he did a very good job and he’ll do a very good job, and I wish him the best,” Catillaz said. “We will work together.” Bob Bevilacqua is the owner of Carcuzzi Car Care Center in Saranac Lake. He spent five years on the Saranac Lake School Board, including one year as president of the board. He spent some time on the Harrietstown Board of Assessment Review. He was elected Harrietstown councilman in 2007 and again in 2011. Tom Catillaz works at Consolidated Electrical Distributors (CED) Twin State in Saranac Lake. He has served 12 years on the Saranac Lake Village Board. He was first elected as a trustee in 1996, re-elected in 1998 and then elected mayor in 1999, serving a total of seven years at the helm of the village, deciding not to run in 2006. He was again elected as a trustee in 2010. Catillaz said it’s too soon to know whether he’ll run for supervisor again in 2013. “It’s a long way away,” Catillaz said. “No commitment now. I’m still reeling from this. I’m exhausted.” As of press time on Nov. 13, Catillaz had yet to take his campaign signs down from around the village. Bevilacqua’s signs were taken down soon after the election.

ECH starts fundraising campaign ELIZABETHTOWN — Elizabethtown Community Hospital’s 2012 annual fundraising campaign is underway. The annual appeal was conducted through a letter that was mailed to people in the hospital’s service area and to donors who live outside of the area. The appeal letter outlines how Gary Dickerson of Lewis used the services of the hospital’s emergency room to provide lifesaving care during the heart attack he experienced in 2010. The appeal letter also explains the hospital’s unique role as a federally-designated critical access hospital; and explained about its newly developed ambulance transport service – to help patients receive the care that they need, as quickly as possible. “The hospital’s role is to triage, treat and transport during a life-threatening situation; and I believe that it’s incredibly important to communicate that to people,” said Jane Hooper, director of community relations. “The emergency department staff at ECH provides initial, life-saving care so that a patient is able to make it to a heart center, trauma center or stroke center. Without ECH being involved, many people simply would not make it.” Some organizations count on annual contributions to help balance a budget deficit but that is not the case at ECH. “We don’t do that because it can lead to a future shortfall and distort future planning.

In addition, this hospital is financially wellmanaged,” said Hooper. “Gifts received during the hospital’s annual campaign are put toward additional equipment, patient care items or a specific purchase such as the new transport ambulance.” Elizabethtown Community Hospital (ECH), like any non-profit organization, appreciates the generosity of individuals to develop services, expand clinical programs and maintain technological and facility enhancements. Gifts also support the hospital’s ability to provide high-quality care to patients; including those who are unable to pay. “Healthcare is one area that is often a target of federal budget reduction,” said hospital CEO Rod Boula. “Grant funding for various initiatives, along with reduction in payment amount by Medicare and Medicaid to hospitals are shrinking. Hospitals like ours undertake annual fundraising initiatives to maintain their ability to develop new services for patients.” Tax-deductible contributions to ECH can be made electronically through its website at or by a check made payable to Elizabethtown Community Hospital. Checks should be sent to: Community Relations Department, Elizabethtown Community Hospital, PO Box 277, Elizabethtown, NY 12932. The campaign runs through Dec. 31.

takes 114th Assembly district Owens re-elected to Congress Stec By Shaun Kittle

By John Gereau

PLATTSBURGH — Incumbent U.S. Rep. Bill Owens (D-Plattsburgh) was elected to a third term in a tightly contested race against Republican opponent Matt Doheny on General Election Day, Nov 6. Owens, a longtime local Plattsburgh attorney, won with 50 percent of the vote compared to Doheny's 48 percent. Third party candidate Donald Hassig — who was denounced by the Green Party following comments he made at a candidate forum in mid-October and then later threw his support behind Owens — siphoned off two percent of the vote. Reached for comment in Watertown following the balloting, Doheny spokeswoman Laura Chambers said Doheny will follow the absentee ballots but said he was officially conceding the race. She said he is not ruling out another run in the future. With 93 percent of the voting districts reporting, the balloting stood at 106,489 for Owens and 103,059 for Doheny. Bill Owens arrived at American Legion Post 20, the Democrat headquarters in Clinton County, shortly after midnight to loud applause. He walked up to the podium and said, "About three minutes ago, Matt Doheny called me to concede." "A tremendous amount of work went into this," he told the crowd assembled. "So many folks went above and beyond. As you go through this process, you certainly learn a lot, and my education continues.” “I will continue to represent you from the ground up. We need to bring the middle class up,” he said, noting that President Barack Obama won a second term in office. “I hope this causes us to come to rationale compromise and next year we do things that are a benefit to us all. We need to make sure we are lifting all of us up so all of us are doing better two years from now. We need rational compromise. I will reach across the aisle and forge compromises that make sense.” Owens won in two of the four local counties. He won handily in his home county of Clinton by the tally of 16,554 to 9,979 and won in nearby Essex County 7,213 to 6,181. Doheny took Warren County 13,017 to 11,381 and Hamilton County 1,555 to 897.

LAKE GEORGE — Lake George Village is quiet this time of year, but Daniel Stec’s (R - Queensbury) campaign headquarters was energized after the election results rolled in Nov. 6. Stec beat Dennis Tarantino (D-Glens Falls), accumulating 27,644 votes to Tarantino’s 20,340, in the race for the 114th Assembly District, a seat being vacated at the end of the year by incumbent Teresa Sayward. The race was fairly close in some of the district’s four counties, with Stec gathering 2,889 votes to Tarantino’s 2,187 in Wash- Stec thanked Hillary, his wife of 21 years, for her continued support. He beat Dennis Tarantino in the race for the 114th Assembly District. ington County; 2,134 votes Photo by Shaun Kittle to Tarantino’s 1,306 in Saratoga County; 8,898 votes to Tarantino’s 6,276 in Essex County and 13,723 votes to Tarantino’s 10,571 in Warren County. At about 11 p.m., Stec announced he had won to a group of supporters who had gathered at the Lake George Forum. As Stec stood with his arm around Hillary, his wife of 21 years, he thanked everyone on his staff, and said he was particularly proud that he won despite being outspent two to one on his campaign. “I am so proud of the positive campaign that we ran,” Stec said. “We were invited down into the mud numerous times, and we refused to go into the mud.” Shortly after the announcement, Tarantino called Stec to congratulate him on his victory. “I feel humbled by the outpouring of support from voters today,” Stec said. “Our democratic process is very important.” Stec listed that pushing for New York state mandate relief, creating a better climate for job growth and making the state more business friendly are his top priorities. As town supervisor of Queensbury, Stec said he liked being able to get to know his constituents on a personal level, but is welcoming the challenge of serving a larger region. In essence, his local just got a little bit bigger. “It’ll be great to now be working closely with all these town supervisors, the sheriffs and district attorneys in the other counties, and the people and the businesses,” Stec said. “There’s going to be business needs in Moriah and Ticonderoga, and environmental issues in the Adirondacks. Now, I’ll be the guy I’ve been calling before, I’ll be the one receiving those phone calls.”

Congressman Bill Owens addresses his supporters after hearing that his challenger Matt Doheny had conceded the race for the 21st congressional district. There are more than 17,000 absentee ballots still yet to be counted, so a final count will not be known for more than a week. According to the state Board of Elections, there are 174,028 enrolled Republicans and 116,026 Democrats in the district. A former Wall Street investment banker who lives in Watertown, Doheny ran on a platform of promising to unshackle small business by removing burdensome government regulations and said he’d fight to repeal the national Affordable Health Care Act, also dubbed “Obamacare.” Owens voted in favor of the Affordable Health Care Act in 2010 saying portions of it are vital to protect the health of citizens — like forcing insurance companies to provide coverage for pre-existing conditions,extending coverage for college students up to age 26 under their parents’ health plans, and banning insurance companies from cancelling insurance of those who are ill.

Fundraiser Nov. 25 for Willsboro logger

By Katherine Clark WILLSBORO — Family and friends of DJ Belzile will be holding a benefit fundraiser to help after an accident that took away his ability to work. On Oct. 22, Belzile went out to cut down a dead tree, something he said he had done countless times before in his more than 20 years of being a logger. "I thought I had done everything right, looking back I did everything I had done hundreds of times before, but then you have to think this is just about the second most dangerous job in the world," Belzile said. As the tree he was cutting down was almost completely cut through, it split and fell back toward him. Belzile was able to get his body out of the way but the tree crushed his left hand into another tree as it came down. Friends rushed Belzile to the Smith House where Ron Jackson sent him to Fletcher Allen Health Care in Burlington, Vt. where a hand specialist was waiting to see him. "Within the hour I was being treated by the special care unit, they knew exactly what to do," Belzile said. In the accident, Belzile lost three fingers, including his thumb, and the skin of his hand was literally pulled off when he pulled his hand from under the tree. After four surgeries and with three more planned, Belzile said the experience has been humbling. "You never think this sort of thing is ever going to happen to you, but then you think there are some people who don't come home from something like this and I did," he said. Belzile, who is left handed, dramatically hurt that hand. The self-employed logger said he is going to have to relearn everything right handed and that sitting home is not ideal for him. "I want to work and get back out there and the doctors say it could happen as early as next spring, but there’s some work I'll have to do to get there," he said. Belzile is currently having surgeries to remove the dead skin from his hand and using a machine to stimulate skin growth. Once the hand is healed the doctors are hoping to repair the nerve damage to allow his hand to work as a "helping hand." "I'm going to have to be right handed but I think I'll be able to do it," he said. Through it all, Belzile and his wife Tina said they couldn't have done it without the overwhelming help from the community. "I didn't realize so many people cared until this happened and I want to thank everyone," he said. Wendy Sayward, a close friend of the Belzile family, said she wants to arrange the event to help with medical costs and costs of living while DJ undergoes medical treatment. “Felt someone needed to do something to help and we want to get the whole community involved,” Sayward said. The event will be held at Johnny's Family Smokehouse and Restaurant in Willsboro on Sunday, Nov. 25 from 2 to 5 p.m. There will be a $10 cover charge for this event. Pizza and wings will be provided, along with music generously donated by Mr. G's Music Machine. Sayward said she is in the process of talking to local business owners about donating items for the event’s silent auction. There will also be a 50/50 raffle. If anyone would like to help or would like to make a donation for DJ or the silent auction contact Sayward at 5721144. Donations can be made to: DJ Belzile Benefit Fund, c/o Rhonda Belzile, 45 Maple Street, Willsboro, N.Y. 12996.

Keene Central School class political forum gives light to all parties By Katherine Clark KEENE — Students, some still too young to vote, actively promoted political party platform awareness for a public discussion on the issues surrounding the 2012 presidential candidates on Nov. 1 at Keene Valley Central School. Six senior students, each with a party community member, held the forum, representing the Democratic, Republican, Green, Socialism and Liberation, and the Constitutional party. “This is not a debate but an educational forum,” said Brad Hurlburt, KCS Social studied teacher said. All members of the six parties represented on the New York State ballot for president an opportunity to equally talk about five talking points that the six students in Brad Hurlburt’s Government Class selected after listening to the three presidential debates between President Barak Obama and Governor Mitt Romney. “One of the goals of the evening was to continue to have the Republican and Democratic party represented but to also let people be informed

Members of the KCS senior class and members of the area political parties hold forum. about the perspectives of the four additional parties that are fielding a candidate on the NYS ballot,” Hurlburt said. The students began the forum by introducing the core values and platforms of each political party they were representing. The students followed their introductions with five talking points: climate change, civil liberties, war on terror, world economy, and social issues such as the party’s position on Roe vs. Wade and race equality. For the Democratic party, Hannah McCabe said th party believes the country and is stronger together than if everyone was on their own.

Sam Balzac, student representative for the Green party, said the things he learned about the green party follow many of is personal beliefs and desires to work harder for the environment. “The Green New Deal seeks to reduce unemployment by creating government jobs, slow down climate change by encouraging the development of wind and solar technologies, fix our financial situation by reorganizing America's banking system, preserve democracy by expanding voting rights, and decrease military spending," Balzac said. After the forum, Balzac said the research project had him

thinking differently about the green party. "I am very concerned about the environment and I think we need to do more to protect it," Balzac said. "Many of the values of the green party reflect my own, if you had asked me before I started this project I would have said my political opinions match the democratic party." On the war on terror, Jack Van Wie said the socialism party's policy on war is to stay out of different countries and let the governments abroad figure out their own problems. The party's stance brings up the major differences between the socialism party and the re-

publican and democratic parties. The six different parties were contacted and invited to send an adult member to work with their student representative and also participate in the forum. Assembly candidate Dan Stec drove from Albany, taking a break from campaigning to participate as the Republican party member. "I thought Certainly these kinds of forums are important for young people to learn, these are high school seniors they are about to become tax payers and voters , so they are entering adulthood this is part of the process and part of their learning experience," Stec said. "I though it was great that they invited me I did think the students did a great job researching each partys position on things and it was a good evening." Members of lesser mainstream parties also came out in support of political education. “I am an Essex County Green and I just thought it was a wonderful idea, to get the word out in other school districts, I hope in the future we’ll get some other schools involved,” said Steve Ruzbacki, Green Party Adult representa-

tive. “I thought this was such a wonderful opportunity to have the people we had to talk about issues I’m really very honored to be part of this,” Ruzbacki said. The information students presented were based on research conducted by the student in the Government class taught by Hurlburt. " I did have the students do a research project for a grade in class on their chosen parties, but I did not give them a grade or credit for participating in the forum," Hurlburt said. "They did it just for the experience and community service. Hurlburt said the six seniors are all in a bridge class Hulburt teaches for North Country Community College. The six fulfill their graduation requirement for Participation in Government, and they also get three credits through NCCC for an introduction to Political Science course.

WESTPORT — The third Champlain Area Trails (CATS) Travel Writing Contest has ten final entrees. “We invite everybody to visit our website, read the articles, and vote for their favorite,” said Chris Maron, executive director of CATS. “People can read the stories describing trails, local businesses, and the enjoyment of this area at our website,” CATS initiated the travel writing contest in July with the purpose of promoting economic vitality through outdoor recreation based tourism. “These days people research vacation destinations online so as they look into visiting the northeast, we want them to see these articles about New York’s Champlain Valley and get inspired to come here, enjoy the outdoors, patronize local businesses, and

tell others about this beautiful area,” said Maron. “We are pleased with the entrants in our third contest,” said contest coordinator Gretel Schueller. “We wanted them to describe activities they enjoy here—hiking, paddling, eating at restaurants, visiting historic sites, walking in our communities, and more. We wanted articles with photos that portray the beauty and vitality of this special place.” The first place winner will be chosen by contest judges in mid-January and receive a $500 prize; the writer with the most online votes receives the $250 People's Choice Prize. The prizes are paid from a grant CATS received to promote economic vitality. Voting began Nov. 8 and ends on Nov. 30. To vote, go to the CATS website, read the stories, and send your email vote to

Denpubs Sports ELCS falls in overtime to Chateaugay; local teams swept in regionals need to act like they have been there before, too.” The Eagles will open their final four tournament at 12:30 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 17, with a game against Section III’s Poland. “They have a good soccer tradition,” McAuliffe said. “We have to go down there and take it one game at a time.” Section VII boys soccer had two other chances to enter final four play but came up short. In Class C, the Lake Placid Blue Bombers gave up a lone goal in the 55th minute to drop a 1-0 decision to Hoosick Falls, who qualified for state play in four different sports, three by defeating Section VII foes (boys and girls soccer, football and field hockey). In Class B, Ichabod Crane scored on a penalty kick in the fourth minute of play as they advanced to the state final four with a 3-0 win over Northeastern Clinton.

By Keith Lobdell POTSDAM — In a rough weekend for Section VII girls soccer, the tightest contest was held in Class D, where the ElizabethtownLewis Lady Lions looked to advance past Section X champ Chateaugay and into the state final four. The Lions came out and played their style of defensive-oriented soccer throughout the first 80 minutes, entering overtime tied 0-0 against the Lady Bulldogs. In the fourth minute of overtime, Hannah Cook was able to control the ball for the Bulldogs, rushing to the left side of the penalty box and firing a low-angle skipper into the Lions net, the lone goal in a 1-0 defeat. “We were hoping to get through the first 10 minutes of overtime tied,” Lions head coach Steve Denton said. “We were able to make a couple of runs, but they were able to capitalize on once chance and we weren’t.” The Lions best chance came late in the second half, when the Lions powerful counter attack got the ball to the foot of Emily Morris, who fired a shot into the upper right portion of the Chateaugay net. Bulldog keeper Makayla Fleury made a jumping save, pushing the ball over the crossbar to keep the game scoreless. “We didn’t have a lot of opportunities, but we were able to make them quality attempts,” Denton said. “We just could not get the ball in the goal.” Kearsten Ashline finished with 12 saves for the Lions, while Emma Disogra had two saves made while Ashline was on the sidelines being tended to after colliding with a Chateaugay player. Fleury also spent time on the sidelines after a collision. “This was a total success for us,” Denton said about the season. “We did not make the final four, but we did something that this school has not done in 25 years by hoisting the sectional trophy.” In Class C, the AuSable Valley Lady Patriots were on the wrong end of the scoresheet and whistle, giving up four goals in the sec-

ond half and having two called back by the officials in falling, 4-0, to Hoosick Falls. Bryce Douglass made 11 saves in the loss. The Plattsburgh Lady Hornets also found it hard to break into the scoring column, as Schalmont scored three goals in the second half to defeat PHS, 3-0. Karlie Neal made seven saves for the Hornets.


Three Section VII football teams had the goal of making it to the final four in Kingston this weekend, but their Section II foes were not going to let that happen. The Peru Indians, Saranac Lake Red Storm and Moriah Vikings were all defeated in the regional round of state play, with Moriah falling to Section II/Class D power Rensselaer, 50-0. In Class C, the Red Storm hosted another perennial power, Hoosick Falls, on the turf at AuSable Valley High School Nov. 10, where they scored the first points of the game in the second quarter when Matt Phelan scored on the ground from one yard out to give his team a 6-0 lead. Hoosick countered in the third to tie the

game at 6-6 before Phelan struck again on the ground, this time from 18 yards away to give the Red Storm a 12-6 lead with 10 minutes to play. Saranac Lake was unable to hold the lead, as Brad Burns scored his second and third touchdowns of the day for Hoosick Falls to pull away for a 20-12 win. Phelan finished the day with 86 rushing yards and two scores to go along with a 20of-32 passing performance for 206 yards, with Kevin Morgan catching seven balls for 103 yards and Michael Burpoe 11 for 100 yards. However, the Red Storm managed only five yards of offense that came from somewhere other than the arm or legs of Phelan. Defensively, Seth Pickreign added an interception. In Class B, Glens Falls scored first and outlasted the Peru Indians, finishing with a 3620 edge on the scoreboard. Zane Bazzano got the Indians on the board in the first quarter with an eight-yard touchdown run, but the Indians were unable to tie the game on a two-point conversion. Glens Falls scored the next 14 points before Tim Remillard scored from 24 yards out and Mackenzie LaRocque added a two-point conversion, cutting the lead to 22-14. Remillard scored the final touchdown of the season for the Indians on a three-yard run to counter a Glens Falls, who scored the final points of the game. Remillard finished with 44 rushing yards and 21 receiving yards to go with his two scores on the ground. Bazzano had 52 receiving yards and a pick of defense, while LaRocque finished with 41 yards on the ground. Blake Altizer was 1-of-16 for 81 yards and one interception.

Boys soccer

The Chazy Eagles boys varsity soccer team was the last of nine area sports teams to take the field with a chance to advance to the state final four in their respective sport. While the previous eight were unable to accomplish the task, the Eagles served notice to all of Class D that they were looking to reclaim what they feel is theirs — a New York State Championship. The Eagles rolled to a 7-0 win against Huevelton Nov. 10 as Brandon Laurin scored three goals and assisted on one other. Nathan Reynolds, Hayden Guay, Josh Barriere and Craig Botten added goals to the of-

Section VII runners had a strong meet at the NYSPHSAA cross country championships Nov. 10. Overall, the Ticonderoga boys team placed fifth in the state for Class D, with the Seton Catholic girls team placing sixth among Class D. Both Section VII/Class D contingents also placed sixth. In Class B, Ashley Leta of Peru finished 55th overall with a time of 19:52 in the girls race, while Kyler Agoney was 91st overall with a time of 17:44 in the boys race. In Class C, Jeriqho Gadway, the Section VII champion form Plattsburgh High, finished 24th with a time of 16:54. Beekmantown’s Colin Quackenbush finished 37th at 17:10, while Josh Wade finished 45th with a time of 17:21. Elena Beideck was the top finisher in Class C for the girls, as the Saranac Lake runner posted a time of 21:18. In Class D, Mitchell Ryan of Seton Catholic ran the course in 16:53 for a ninth place finish, while teammate Evan Page was 14th with a time of 17:05.

We need to play the best that we possibly can at this level because in the final four, one mistake can end your season.” Reynolds said that while the team is pleased, their goal remains the same. “We are ready to go at all times, and we go hard for each other because our goal is to make it back to states and win it all,” Reynolds said. “It would be awesome to do that after the bad loss last season and for our seniors to be able to say they were on the only team that ended the season with a win.” “We tell the other players to take it all in because it is a great experience,” Botten said. “Our advantage is that we have been there before, and we tell the younger kids that they

The business of wilderness

Soaring mountain cliffs and gentle backcountry lakes are key features of the rugged Adirondack wilderness. Photo by Joe Hackett


or years, there has been a protracted debate over the value of protected state lands encompassed within the Adirondack Forest Preserve. Is land more valuable as a protected wilderness or when utilized as a working forest? In recent months, the ongoing debate has been rekindled due to the proposed State purchase of nearly 69,000 acres of Adirondack forest lands from The Nature Conservancy (TNC). According to the NYSDEC, the TNC lands will be sold to the State in a phased five-year contract beginning this year. If all goes as planned, the proposed acquisition will be the largest single private parcel of land added to the Adirondack Forest Preserve in over a century. The lands include a variety of remote parcels acquired from Finch and Pruyn Timberlands as part of a total of 161,000 acres purchased by TNC in 2007. Included within the proposed purchase are many unique and biologically important lands, as well as some high quality, recreational real estate. Of particular note are the Essex Chain of Lakes, OK Slip Falls and the Blue Ledges of the Hudson River Gorge. The 18,000 acre Essex Chain tract encompasses nine lakes and numerous ponds, as well as a critically important junction of the Cedar and Hudson Rivers which will provide public access to, and from these wild rivers. Over the years, Finch and Pruyn has leased portions of these lands to a variety of private hunting and sporting clubs, including the fabled Gooley Club. In fact, some of the proposed new lands have remained in private hands for over a hundred and fifty years. Leases for the remaining private hunting clubs, which total about 2000 acres, are set to expire by 2018. When the camps are finally gone, it will signal the end of an era. Although the leaseholders never owned the lands, they treated them well, and protected them as their own. They have been good stewards, and they’ve long enjoyed the benefits of their care. Throughout the 1980’s, I often flew into First Lake on the Essex Chain of Lakes with Helms Aero Service out of Long Lake. The big lake held a fine population of trout, and it provided plenty of solitude. However, it was not unusual to see or hear a motor vehicle, as there are many miles of roads woods roads lacing the vast property. Boreas Pond, which is the centerpiece of the Boreas Pond Tract, has a wonderful, log lodge situated along it’s shoreline. Located nearly six miles distant from the nearest paved road, the existing log lodge would provide a wonderful setting for an Interior Outpost, similar to Adirondac Loj on Hart Lake. However, it is unlikely the structure will be allowed to remain after state acquisition, due to land use restrictions in ‘wilderness areas”. Although the Adirondack Mountain Club (ADK) owns Adirondac Loj on Hart Lake, as well as Johns Brook Lodge, both of these properties are located on private lands which are adjacent to and surrounded by state wilderness or primitive corridors. ADK opened Johns Brook Lodge in the Johns Brook Primitive Area in July 1925. In addition to a Main Lodge, ADK maintains several outbuildings as rentals, which include Camp Peggy O’Brien, Winter Camp and a small hut built for volunteers. In the early 1990s, both Winter Camp and Grace Camp were renovated. According to a 1903 opinion by the NYS Attorney General, the term wild forest lands was intended “To preserve such lands as a wilderness, in which the work of man should not appear; these lands should remain subject to natural conditions and results, without the intervention of man, in cutting, pruning or otherwise cultivating the woods or the land.” Quite obviously, over the years exceptions have been made, most significantly in the High Peaks Wilderness. There are similar opportunities to establish Interior Outposts near the historic McIntyre Tract, where the Open Space Institute retains both the restored McNaughton Cottage, as well at a log cabin, hunting camp on the Upper Preston Pond.

In addition to these properties, SUNY/ESF also maintains a former NL executive cottage, the Masden House which is located near the Upper Works in Tahawus. As the use of the Adirondack’s most remote recesses continues to increase, the benefits of maintaining a presence in the nether reaches of the park are likely to be realized, especially in terms of search and rescue, and protection of natural resources. Currently, the Adirondack Park contains 85 percent of the total combined wilderness in the eastern United States. It also contains about 27 percent of all the forested land in New York State. There are 18 designated wilderness areas in the Adirondack Park totaling about 1.1 million acres. With the recent establishment of a marked hiking trail to the summit of Jay Peak in the Jay Mountain Wilderness, there are no longer any wilderness areas in the Adirondacks that remain trailless. The Boreas Pond parcel alone will serve to link three separate wilderness areas by connecting a vast expanse of woodlands with an historic, 12,000 conservation easement that has protected the lands surrounding Elk Lake for over 60 years. The purchase will connect the Dix Mountain Wilderness with the Hoffman Notch Wilderness and the Western High Peaks Wilderness. As a result, it’s likely a majority of the proposed new lands will be zoned as wilderness. As such, management of the new lands will prove to be a stretch, considering the current DEC staffing levels. It is expected the natural and historic resources of these proposed new purchases will draw new visitors, which will serve to boost the economies of local towns such as Newcomb, Minerva and North Hudson. Although several local politicians have argued the proposed state lands will not generate comparable economic benefits to a working forest, or recreational leases, the math simply doesn’t support such arguments. In 1920, about 120,000 people were employed in the wood products industry in New York state. By 1970, less than 6000 were so employed. The peak year for the Adirondack lumber industry was 1905 when about 3.5 million trees were felled and over 700 million board feet of lumber were produced. Today, the Adirondack lumber industry can’t compete with pulpwood produced on tree farms in Siberia, or hardwoods harvested in Malaysia. Currently, machines such as ‘feller/bunchers’ and similar on-site production mills, can be operated by a small contingent of workers. They can accomplish the output of a small army of lumbermen, in less time and with far less expense. It is difficult to compare the economic values of a working forest to the economic benefits of a protected forest. However, the most glaring comparison is evident in the scenic vistas, the abundance of fresh water, fresh air, the diverse ecosystems and the wildlife.These quality of life issues are available to both visitors and local residents. Wood products are available in many places, across the globe. However, wilderness is not so easily procured. Modern society is just not producing wilderness anymore. It is a product that grows slowly, and spoils easily. Yet once it takes root, it is very difficult to remove it. With over 23 percent of the US population located within a day’s travel, the Adirondack region is ideally suited to dispense the elixir of wilderness for years to come.

inter comes with little warning in the North Country. The season hits fast, like a match strike, and it burns slowly with the steady luminescence of all the whites, blues and grays the cold has to offer. It seems that just yesterday I was exiting the forest under the warm and brilliant twilight of 9 p.m., but now the days are short and night always seems close by, creating By Shaun Kittle long shadows in the mid-afternoon as it hovers over us, its round yellow face grinning from the dark infinity of outer space. At Point au Roche the meadows and forests are preparing accordingly—they have hunkered down, ready for the Big Freeze. The wind, now unimpeded by foliage long fallen, will soon push through the naked vegetation like water passing through a sieve. Tree branches will crackle in response, coyote tracks will be reduced to powder as quickly as they are made, and Lake Champlain will heave with ice and broken timber. But for now, all is calm. I visit this place almost every week, sometimes sticking to the trails and other times foraging a path between them. I know the blue jay on Long Point well—he emits a hawk-like shriek at me every time I enter his meadow hangout. And the belted kingfisher, the one that snatches fish from the great open wetland near the bike path, is not a stranger, either. I love that I can visit this place when the days are short and never have to worry about running out of time. I love that I can visit after working all day in the summer and still get to be outside for a couple of fleeting hours. There is a lot to love here, and a lot to see. Along the trail to Middle Point I often take the right hand path, following its descent into a primeval forest of vinedraped white cedar. Unlike other areas at Point au Roche, this place looks nearly the same year-round. The vines hang like bloated serpents and the understory, even in the middle of summer, is almost non-existent, so when the snow finally penetrates the splayed leaves of the cedar boughs it simply turns the forest floor’s summertime brown to white. Out on Ram’s Head, the cliffs that define the point drop sharply into Lake Champlain, giving a fine view of the open water and some of the mountains in Vermont and the Adirondacks. In the summer the bay here is as relaxing as it is rugged, and in the winter its location secludes it from some of the worst of the lake’s wind. The walk back follows the shoreline — a jumbled mess of logs and broken stones that is transformed into a crude ice-sculpture garden as spring begins to break the lake’s frozen surface. Every aspect of the landscape is decorated, from the upturned shelves of jagged ice to the great icicle fangs that hang from branches and rock overhangs and have been bent sideways from constant exposure to the wind. It is somewhat unreasonable to play favorites with nature, but I do find myself constantly drawn to that spot in the meadow on Long Point, where the blue jay likes to perch. It is wonderful and open and dotted by stands of both red and white cedar, juniper, elderberry and all of the other things that flourish in open spaces. Walking through the waist-high vegetation two weeks ago, a flicker of campfire orange lit up the corner of my eye. I stopped and, upon closer inspection, found a monarch butterfly clinging to the stem of a milkweed plant like the last warm days of autumn beating back the encroaching frostcloaked mornings. It was a strange sight this late in the season, seemingly left behind by the annual monarch migration. I left the creature as I found it, slowly opening and closing its wings, and made my way up a small rise in the field, where I could see over the trees and on to Lake Champlain. Maybe we all cling to summer a little bit, but the seasons will go forth regardless of our wishes. Emitting a cloud of frozen water-vapor breath I turn away from the monarch, and the summer, and head home with the setting sun against my back. For information, visit
