keith@denpubs.com SARANAC LAKE — For the past 150 years, America has been through a major social change to try to create a climate where all races are equal regardless of color. The signing of the emancipation proclamation was the first step in putting the freedom of slaves on paper. Jan. 1 will mark the 150th anniversary of the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation. The John Brown Lives! organization put together a two-day event on Nov. 30

and Dec. 1 for students, educators and general public across the North Country, “North Country Supports 21st Century Emancipation Proclamation,” at North Country Community College in Saranac Lake, Lake Placid Heaven Hill Farm and a showing of “Glory” at the Palace Theater. Martha Swan, Founder and Director of John Brown Lives said the weekend’s seminars inspired very rich dialogue between the guests. “It was really stimulating and full of useful informa-

tion,” Swan said. “It really brought the history out of the deep south and brought it to people in the North Country. It was a chance for people to see who else is out there working with interest to these questions of human equality today.” When Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation in the throes of the Civil War, he undoubtedly believed that it would sound the death knell for slavery. However, there are approximately 15,000 documented cases of modern day slavery and human

trafficking in the United States today and 27 million people enslaved worldwide. Kenneth B. Morris, Jr., the great-great-great grandson of abolitionist Frederick Douglass, spoke to visitors about how he continues to carry on the legacy of human equality and end modern day slavery through his organization, the Frederick Douglass Family Foundation. Through his foundation, Morris has inspired students across the country to produce a New Proclamation of CONTINUED ON PAGE 6

ELIZABETHTOWN — While the bodies were close, the tentative 2013 Essex County budget was passed easily under weighted voting, adopting a spending plan that represented a 1.13 percent increase to the tax levy. The budget was passed, 2,077-718, during a special county board meeting Dec. 10, with the average tax rate expected to increase 5 cents up to $2.40 per $1,000 of assessed property value. The budget calls for $95,000, 115 in spending with $71,689,099 in revenues and $6,850,000 in fund balance, leaving a tax levy of $16,461,016. County Manager Dan Palmer said the tax levy was a decrease from 2.68 percent to 1.13 percent when chargebacks from the towns were added into the budget. “This is the flat amount that is applied to everyone, and then you look into the charge-backs and other factors,” Palmer said. “If there were no charge-backs, we started with 2.68 percent. Once the town puts it as a charge-back against the county warrant, then it no longer goes to the towns. That is how we went from 2.68 percent to 1.13 percent.” Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafava said the chargebacks would affect local municipality taxes based on the amount each had in chargebacks. “You just shifted it from one to the other,” Scozzafava said. The nine voting for the budget were Charles Har-

LAKE PLACID — The Northern Adirondack Vocal Ensemble will give three performances of a Festival of Lessons and Carols: Friday, Dec. 21, at 7:30 p.m. at Notre Dame Church in Malone; Saturday, Dec. 22, at 7:30 p.m. at St. Peter ’s Church in Plattsburgh; and Sunday, Dec. 23, at 3 p.m. at St. Agnes Church in Lake Placid. NAVE, conducted by Andrew Benware, is a mixed chamber choir of professional and amateur singers: soprano, alto, tenor, and bass. A small and balanced ensemble to which each member brings extensive previous choral experience, NAVE performs a variety of periods and styles with harmonies of four-to-eight parts. Its 20 members represent a cross-section of the Adirondacks, hailing from points in Clinton, Essex, and Franklin Counties. NAVE’s Festival of Lessons and Carols follows the traditional model of those performed annually on Christmas Eve (since 1928) at King’s College Chapel in Cambridge, England. The program includes the well-loved traditional carols “Infant Holy, Infant Lowly,” “Sans Day Carol,” and “Herefordshire Carol” (respectively Polish, Cornish, and English). Also of interest are Boris Ord’s setting of the

Of special note will be the folkish “A Virgin Unspotted” (1778) by the Colonial American composer William Billings and the juicy “Bogoroditsje Djevo” (“Hail Mary”) of Sergei Rachmaninoff (1915), so evocative of the Russian Orthodox Church. Community members will read the texts, which include passages from Genesis and the Gospels, as well as a contemporary poem, “Annunciation,” by Denise Levertov. The audience is invited to join with the choir in congregational singing – accompanied by the mighty organ. Of familiar Advent and Christmas hymns: “O Come, O Come Emmanuel,” “Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus,” “O Little Town of Bethlehem,” “Silent Night,” “While Shepherd’s Watched Their Flocks by Night,” ”As With Gladness Men of Old,” and “O Come, All Ye Faithful.” Admission is a suggested donation of $10.

Adirondack Carousel opens

Roll on, Red Storm

The race for H-town

Missing LP man found dead

Front office drama at LPCS

After years of work and preparation, the Adirondack Carousel finally was ready for riders during the Memorial Day weekend. From the story: “Twelve years ago, this carousel was a dream of one local woman who is also a carver. Her name, as many of you know, is Karen Loffler,” Adirondack Carousel Board Chair Marge Glowa said during the opening ceremonies. “And Karen’s dream has finally become a reality. This is with a vision to involve, encourage and inspire all youth to appreciate where we live, be environmentally responsible, enjoy the great outdoors of the Adirondacks, to be healthy and to have fun while doing it all...” “I’ve had goose bumps since I saw it more than two weeks ago,” Loffler said before Glowa’s opening remarks. “It’s very cool... It’s really spectacular that the community came together. Every little detail on the carousel was volunteered from someone, and so it’s really wonderful.”

The Saranac Lake athletic department had a great year in 2012, with two varsity teams going deep into the state tournament in their respective sports. In March, the Red Storm Hockey team, led by CVAC MVP Devin Darrah, made their way through sectional play and past Section II power Queensbury and to the final four in Utica. Darrah played one of his best games of the season, netting a hat trick, but the Oswego offensive attack was too much as the Red Storm fell, 6-4. Later, on the gridiron, the Red Storm leveled all competitors in the re-organized CVAC, posting a perfect 8-0 record and capturing the Class C title. Behind the arm and legs of league Most Valuable Player Matt Phelan, who was also a key member of the hockey team, the Red Storm defeated Ogdensburg Free Academy in the state regional round before falling to fall sports powerhouse Hoosick Falls in the regional final round,

The election season saw an onoff-on race for the position of Harrietstown Supervisor between Tom Catillaz and Bob Bevilacqua, in which the latter won the position for one year, when many feel there will be a rematch at the polls. From the story: “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...” “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.” 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.”

A five-day search for a missing Lake Placid man did not have a happy ending, as the body of 34year-old Seth Kilburn was found within 1,000 feet of his possible destination Aug. 17. Neighbors were shocked by the news. From the story: “I’m sure he took (the path) many times in his youth and at night, if you take the path and veer slightly on either side, there are drop offs in excess of six feet,” Lake Placid Police Chief Bill Moore said. “I think he got off his path slightly, and we believe the cause of death to be accidental...” For Travis Hudson, who lived at the home next to where Kilburn was discovered, the experience was very unreal. “Yesterday I was up picking berrys and I didn’t see him, but I wasn’t looking,” Hudson said... “I thought it was an animal or trash cans but it really didn’t click until today. Shocking to be that close and yet have no idea.”

Accusations, lawsuits and contentious public comment were the norm for the first part of 2012 during Lake Placid School Board meetings. It ended with a settlement in the lawsuit, filed by a former principal, and the non-renewal of Superintendent Randy Richards’ contract. From the story: “I intend to leave the Lake Placid Central School District at the end of the 2012-2013 school year as the Board of Education indicated that they will not be renewing my contract,” Richards wrote... On May 1, the school board approved a $65,000 budget transfer toward a settlement agreement with an unnamed individual after Mulderig had announced in April she would be leaving her position. Through multiple platforms, community members rallied support in favor of Richard’s resignation since the incident with Mulderig became public.

Essex County’s own fiscal cliff Don’t worry, be happy

T

he latest estimate of the world’s demise has humanity’s fate sealed on Dec. 21, the Winter Solstice. If we manage to survive, historians will no doubt write about how we avoided certain doom only to face another, equally apocalyptic threat—the dreaded fiscal cliff. Yes, we might finally see the culmination of our elected official’s inability to accomplish anything of benefit to the rest of us, and it all seems so surreal, so distant, so beyond our control. But there is a way to get closer to the action, and all it takes is a trip to Essex County, home of the North Country’s own fiscal cliff debacle. Essex County’s fiscal cliff is not quite of the same magnitude as its big brother, but its proceedings do reflect a similar indecisive bickering that has been playing out at the national level. There are a lot of numbers and figures and percentages involved, but the bottom line is, if the Essex County board fails to start thinking ahead, things could become much worse in the upcoming years, regardless of who’s in charge. Essex County Manager Dan Palmer knows this, and he has officially removed himself from the equation as of Jan. 1. His announcement to retire came after he failed to convince county supervisors to accept a 3-year budget plan, and he isn’t going out without a few parting words. Palmer has warned the board that its current course, which will likely see the wounded budget haphazardly stitched together by the fund balance, is a dangerous one at best. Here’s how it works: Essex County collects taxes from its citizens and uses that money to pay for all kinds of services. There are things that have a known budget, like money allotted to pay county employees salaries, and there are things that are budgeted for, like road work, that might come in under that budget. The unused tax money is the fund balance, and it is particularly good for dealing with emergencies, such as the spring storm of 2011 and damage incurred by Tropical Storm Irene, which depleted the fund balance by $2.8 million last year. Essex County’s current course will see it utilizing that fund balance money to the tune of about $7 million to balance the county budget and meet the tax cap. The $2.8 million that went toward post-Irene re-

pairs is eventually supposed to be repaid by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, but it should be put back where it belongs — in the fund balance. The same can be said for the other $4 million or so of fund balance money that is being used to keep the tax levy down. As Irene taught us, the fund balance can come in handy, but the current budget proposal would only leave about $1 million in there if FEMA doesn’t come through, and that’s a scary thought considering the damage that has been incurred by storms in recent years. The kicker here is that the county tabled one of the more solid proposals — raising the occupancy tax to 5 percent, a 2 percent increase. The increase might not be popular among hoteliers, particularly the small scale operations, who fear that the extra charge would result in a decrease in tourism. But would a 2-percent increase, which amounts to $3 more for a $150-anight room, really deter people that much? It might be worth including something like that in the budget, considering County Treasurer Mike Diskin projects it will bring in $1.2 million. The occupancy tax certainly wouldn’t solve all of Essex County’s problems, but it would exhibit a modicum of foresight on the part of Essex County supervisors. The time to patch holes and wait until next year to see if they’ve sprung a leak is long gone — now is the time for action and making decisions that will have positive and expected long-term consequences. Dan Palmer knows it, which is refreshing until you realize that is also why he’s retiring — he doesn’t have faith that the current board can accomplish this, and he doesn’t want to be standing next to that dam when it bursts. At a recent meeting, Town of Moriah Supervisor Thomas Scozzafava said that personnel is the elephant in the room, and that the county needs to consider consolidating some of its staff, which is probably true, but the real elephant in the room isn’t the pachyderm — it’s the people feeding it.

I

come from a long line of worriers. As a youngster and even as an adult I found it difficult to understand why mom would worry about the smallest of things. When you’re young, life’s an adventure. Each day brings new opportunity. Today it may have rained but tomorrow is sure to be sunny and bright. Tomorrow was always a new day, full of opportunity, new events that would shape the day and the world. Change was good. Change was exciting. Change was welcomed. So why is it that as you age, not only do things start to sag, hair grows grey and recedes and your concern for things both in your control and beyond, begin to weigh heavy on your mind? Change is not so good. Change brings turmoil and confusion. Change is uncomfortable and triggers resistance. Mom, and her mom before her, would stress out over the big news of the day as well as the every day tasks. Tested by the great depression, two world wars, an evolving cold war, Korean Conflict, Cuban Missile Crisis, Vietnam, assassinations, riots in the street and political corruption, they had plenty of big things to worry about. Looking back their world went from one major crisis event to another. Despite their fears and concerns there was always an optimism that things would turnout okay. There was a happiness that calmed the underlining fears. They had faith, they had family, they had a society that somehow gave them an inner confidence. They were told that they had nothing to fear but fear itself. So they went about the tasks of the days building their lives and their future, focused on their jobs, their family and their dependence on each other. As I age I find myself more stressed than in my early years. Not only do I worry about the big issues of the day, national and international events, but even the little things seem to be a greater concern than they once did. There are plenty

of major issues to fret about as the world turns and there is always any number of Dan Alexander little things in Thoughts from life to bring Behind the Pressline about heartburn and sleepless nights. Is worrying about life’s ups and downs hardwired into my DNA, a hereditary trait, or is it just a function of aging? Or, does it come about as you begin to realize your plans for the future don’t always work out given the ebb and flow of an ever changing landscape and with those you share the world. A recent survey revealed that a resilient attitude may be the secret to aging successfully. In fact they believe a positive attitude may be more important to aging than good physical health. So there may be some truth to the old wives tale of worrying one’s self to death. So the bottom line is this; Mayan calendar predicting the end of the world on December 21st of this year; fiscal cliff looming on the horizon; financial struggles; personal concerns; what to write in next week’s column…. Hey, bring em on. There is little we can’t overcome if we approach things with a positive, can do attitude. If we’ve learned anything through out time there will always be issues beyond our control and as mere humans we are fallible, destined to trip up. We only make things worse for ourselves if we dwell on the negative. We need to be responsible for our actions but we only go around once so we need to make the most of what we’ve been given, keep our focus on the future and our optimism high. Life is short. Every day is a gift, which is why they call it the “present.” Dan Alexander is owner and publisher of Denton Publications. He may be reached at dan@denpubs.com.

teer Group, Youth Group, School Group, Independent Group, Animal Unit) as well as the Louis Fobare Trophy for Best in Parade. There will be a total of 25 awards. The Saranac Lake Winter Carnival Committee, Inc. is a not-for-profit group of volunteers dedicated to organizing an annual mid-winter festival during the first two weeks of February. This 10-day, communitywide event traces its roots to a one-day Carnival held in 1897 by the Pontiac Club. The Carnival honors its heritage every year by building an Ice Palace from blocks of ice harvested from Lake Flower ’s Pontiac Bay, where Carnival events have been traditionally held for generations. For more information, visit the Saranac Lake Winter Carnival web site at www.saranaclakewintercarnival.com. The 2013 Carnival will take place Feb. 1-10.

of no tax increases,” Connell said. “I was here for all six, and it was a mistake. I am deathly afraid of what this budget is going to mean for us in 2014. We are so far in the hole that I am not going to make the same mistake that I made for six years running.” “I feel relying on the FEMA money is relying on money that is not in our hands,” Keene Supervisor Bill Ferebee said. “Should those monies not come in, we would be left with just over $1 million in fund balance and that would have us in real trouble.” North Elba Supervisor Roby Politi said he struggled with the decision. “I think that this is about making it through a financially difficult time in this state and for so many residents in Essex County,” Politi said. “It’s a difficult decision to support this proposal. There is no question that next year is going to be tough and the year after is going to be tough. This board needs to take a closer look at our operations and our personnel.” Minerva Supervisor Sue Montgomery Corey said she felt this was a vote of conscious, referring to the vote made on the Horace Nye Nursing Home. “I think that this is a much bigger vote of conscious than that was because it affects all county residents of all income levels,” Corey said. “The vote is weighing which is more important and how do we balance. The things that I have seen over the last week really are worrisome.” Corey also said she agreed with Palmer that a new budget process needed to be followed. “The budget process that we have been using really is not serving us well,” Corey said. “Our county manager was right. This needs to be a three-year process in order to get us back on the right path.” Scozzafava said he felt depleting the fund balance could help lead to a balanced budget. “It might not be a bad thing if we deplete the fund balance because then we have to make cuts and deal with the real issues,” Scozzafava said. “I fully support this budget and feel confident and using the amount of fund balance that we are. Taxpayers are

Voting against the budget were Gerald Morrow (Chesterfield), Margaret Bartley (Elizabethtown), Bill Ferebee (Keene), David Blades (Lewis), Sue Montgomery Corey (Minerva), George Canon (Newcomb), Ronald Moore (North Hudson) and Dan Connell (Westport). With only one person speaking during the public comment period of the meeting, a majority of supervisors took a chance to make their feelings known on the budget. “We can all appreciate the amount of work that has gone into the budget process this year,” Lewis Supervisor David Blades said. “I am most concerned with the future and the unknown. We can never get to a balanced budget by artificial means. It is my opinion that we are using an excessive amount of fund balance in order to make this board look good.” Blades also channelled Ebenezer Scrooge. “Coal must be rationed if we are to see substantial cuts in county spending,” he said. “We need to make those difficult decisions now, and not in the future.” Elizabethtown Supervisor Margaret Bartley said she felt the money coming from FEMA should not be used to bring down taxes. “The FEMA money represents money that we have already spent,” she said. “These funding sources will only replace money that we have already spent. I believe that next year will even be higher. I cannot support a budget that will only put us farther behind then we already are.” Westport Supervisor Dan Connell responded to supervisors who said the board should not have spent so many years with little or no increases to the levy. “There has been a quite a few times that we should not have gone through six years

Van Anden hired as new SL chamber head SARANAC LAKE — The Saranac Lake Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors is very pleased to announce that Katy Van Anden has been hired as Chambers new Executive Director. A graduate of Saranac Lake High School, Katy grew up learning the ins and outs of small business while managing her parent’s local delicatessen and catering business, Lakeview Deli. She pursued her college career in the Berkshire Mountains to graduate magna cum laude from the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts with a dual concentration business degree in Event Management and Marketing. Prior to returning to Saranac Lake she worked for Mezze Catering, a large full service event management company in the Berkshires.

Van Anden has demonstrated her enthusiasm for the community through her involvement with the Saranac Lake Women’s Civic Chamber, local fundraising efforts, and choreography for Saranac Lake’s Winter Carnival Court and the Saranac Lake High School musicals. She brings a great deal of energy to the chamber and is excited to become more involved with the Saranac Lake’s regional community. Katy looks forward to meeting and understanding the needs of all of the membership and creating a collaborative environment that will provide benefits to all. Come to the Holiday Mixer on Dec. 12 and have a chance to meet and talk with Katy.

fed up with paying taxes.” “There are items in the budget I don’t like, but the lesson I learned in accounting is what you do one side of the ledger you do on the other,” Willsboro Supervisor Ed Hatch said. “I hope that we start doing that.” “I feel this is an excessive use of fund balance,” North Hudson Supervisor Ronald Moore said. “It deserves to be given back in measure to our people.” “I think we need to look at getting serious about downsizing and restructuring,” Ticonderoga Supervisor Deb Malaney said. “It’s not the right budget,” Chesterfield Supervisor Gerald Morrow said. “No one

thought we would come under the tax cap. I have been real discouraged with what has been going on the last two weeks. I don’t want to throw one shovel of dirt out only to have three come back on me. All of this stuff to me is totally ridiculous. We tell them they are doing a good job then we take stuff away from them.” When asked his feelings on the changes, Palmer said, “I can’t make a bigger statement then I did,” referring to his retirement from the position of county manager. The board also voted against overriding the states tax levy cap, which they would meet with an increase of 1.13 percent.

Vet to be buried at Arlington National SARANAC LAKE — The family of local World War II hero, Dr. Rene Joyeuse, who passed away earlier this year, recently received approval from the Secretary of the Army, John McHugh, for the burial of Dr. Joyeuse’s remains in Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, DC. The family was originally denied permission for burial in Arlington because Joyeuse was not an American Citizen during WW II when he worked for the United States Office of Strategic Services (OSS) and parachuted behind German Lines before DDay to with orders to gather crucial intelligence about German military installations, supply depots and troop movements so the allies could bombard them before the invasion. Joyeuse distinguished himself in this mission and others and was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross, personally presented by Gen. Dwight David Eisenhower, second in magnitude only to the Congressional Medal of Honor in the United States. France gave him its highest military honor, The Legion D'Honneur-Chevalier. McHugh cited these accomplishments in a letter to Mayor Clyde Rabideau, who, along with Congressman Bill Owens, lobbied the Department of the Army and requested permission to bury Dr. Joyeuse in Arlington. “Dr. Joyeuse’s case was carefully reviewed by senior leaders on my staff pursuant to our standard protocols for processing these requests,” said McHugh in correspondence. “Though Dr. Joyeuse was not a member of the U.S. military, these senior leaders overwhelmingly recommended that this request be granted due to his extraordinary heroism, lifetime scientific contributions and civilian service in support of the U.S. military. I agree, and have acted accordingly.” Joyeuse and his family came to the United States in 1955, became American citizens and then resided in Saranac Lake for the last 25 years as Dr. Joyeuse worked for the state correctional department and later retried there. He was also a noted surgeon who helped develop the first replacement heart valve and was a founder of the American Trauma Society.

Freedom for the 21st century. He met with students and teachers to inspire them to be modern day abolitionists in the fight against human trafficking. Morris depicted the harsh conditions his relative Douglass endured to fight for his freedom and education. Over the course of event, Morris talked about slavery in Douglass’ time and today, and encourage audiences, especially students and teachers, to gather signatures for the New Proclamation of Freedom.

glass, John Brown, Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, and other 19th century leaders were on display throughout the weekend along with a facsimile of Lincoln’s first Emancipation Proclamation on loan from the New York State Library’s Manuscript and Special Collections Division. Shetterly said on Nov. 30 it was his quest for truth and honesty in the government which inspired him to start painting freedom fighters. As if it were the first time students had been told their government was not always honest with them. He elaborated on a famous Douglass quote “Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them,” to illustrate the government has led us to inhumane choices such as slavery and war. “No body wants to hear the government is lying to them. Theoretically governments are there to trust and to understand you are purposefully being mislead, who do you believe in, who can you trust,” Shetterly said. “It puts you in a very difficult position.” Among the other participants and events were writer Amy Godine on Adirondackers with roots in anti-slavery and civil rights movements, a screening of the popular Civil War film, Glory, at The Palace Theater in Lake Placid, in conjunction with the Adirondack Film Society, a lecture on women and emancipation by Dr. Margaret Washington, Sojourner Truth biographer and Cornell University Professor of History, and a keynote address by historian David Blight on the historical memory of the Civil War and emancipation. All events were part of Freedom Then, Freedom Now: The Long History of Emancipation sponsored by John Brown Lives!, North Country Community College, and the Frederick Douglass Family Foundation.

Every little bit helps. We encourage you to spend $10 on the 10th, $15 on the 15th, and $20 on the 20th of each month. 1. Promotes foot traffic: especially important during the holiday season. 2. Creates a bigger impact: one study shows that communities keep $68 for every $100 spent locally, while they keep $43 when $100 is spent at a chain store. 3. Shopping locally creates and preserves jobs: local businesses hire local people. 4. Provides the best value: when you look at what you get for your dollar, plus durability, it pays to shop locally. 5. Creates less pollution: local businesses generally use less land and resources and less travel in the area reduces air pollution. 6. Enables less taxes: strong local businesses increase the local tax base, thereby decreasing the need to further tax residents while

increasing the revenue for local police, fire and infrastructure. 7. Builds a sense of community: in an ever-increasingly fastpaced world, the desire to shop in places where everyone knows your name is stronger than ever. 8. Establishes one-of-a-kind character: every city wants to stand out with their own personality. Local business helps communities shape their perception to the outside world. 9. Stimulates area vitality: nothing succeeds like success. 10. Local business owners shop locally themselves: businesses need everything from supplies to workday lunches, and local attorneys, accountants, restaurants, office supplies and more supply their need. They also tend to carry locally-produced goods, which further spurs small manufacturing and local artisan work that national chains will not take on.
