Taste of Home coming to Ticonderoga By Shaun Kittle TICONDEROGA „ All of the excitement of the Taste of Home Cooking School is coming to the E.M.A. (Employees Mutual Association) in Ticonderoga on Saturday, June 1. The all-day event, sponsored by Denton Publications, will feature about 20 booths, complete with displays and samples from businesses in the area. But the cornucopia of goods and services is only a warm-up to the main attraction „ a live cooking show hosted by Taste of Home Chef Michael Barna. The charismatic chef will prepare 10 recipes, ranging from appetizers to desserts, in front of the energized crowd. Barna is no stranger to cooking, either. He has given both private and online cooking classes, appeared in national television commercials as a hand model

Michael Barna (he even played Mel GibsonÍ s hand in the movie ñ Signsî ), has helped open three gourmet casino restaurants in Atlantic

City and has spent time as the Executive Sous Chef at a four-star hotel in Philadelphia, all before becoming the Executive Chef for a major national specialty gourmet food shop.

And those mountains are quite a draw for tourists. The quest to become an Adirondack 46er, an elite title bestowed upon those who manage to reach the summit of each of the regionÍ s 46 highest mountains, brings thousands of adventure seekers to the area every year. But Saranac Lake Mayor Clyde Rabideau wants the world to know that his village, on the fringe of the High Peaks region, has mountains, too. So the village designated six mountains, all within 15 miles of Saranac Lake, as ñ 6ers.î ñ With this program, weÍ ve started to introduce our village to the hiking and climbing community within the Adirondacks,î Rabideau said. ñ This is a way to introduce Saranac Lake and our beautiful mountains to that community, from Montreal and further north to New York City and beyond.î The mountains„ McKenzie, Ampersand, Scarface, St. Regis, Haystack and Baker„ are all smaller than their High Peak counterparts, and a determined hiker can complete all six in one day. A map, created for the program as a donation by the Adirondack Park Agency, provides directions to each trailhead and information on each mountain. To drum up excitement, and to discover who will officially become the first Saranac Lake 6er, a kick-off event will be held Saturday, May 25 at CONTINUED ON PAGE 9

The students are required to answer questions and demonstrate hands on application of these topics. The program is put together by the local Soil and Water Conservation Districts from Clinton, Essex, Franklin and St. Lawrence Counties. The regional program is sponsored by the Paul SmithÍ s College along with other local supporters such as Subway, Price Chopper, Stewarts, ESF Ranger School Ellsworth Homestead, Catamount Lodge & Forest LLC, Malone Federation of Teachers and Essex, Franklin & St Lawrence county WQCC.

APA seeks comment on Whiteface Management Plan

RAY BROOK „ The Adirondack Park Agency (APA) is accepting public comment for a proposed amendment to the Whiteface Mountain Ski Center Unit Management Plan. The APA will accept public comments regarding the compliance of the proposed amendment to the guidelines and criteria of the Adirondack Park State Land Master Plan. The public comment period will end on June 4. Whiteface Mountain Ski Center is located in the Town of Wilmington, Essex County, New York and is a New York State - owned facility. It operates under the administrative jurisdiction of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), and is managed by the Olympic Regional Development Authority (ORDA) through a Memorandum of Understanding with the DEC. The facility is classified as an “Intensive Use Area” under the Adirondack Park State Land Master Plan (SLMP). An intensive use area is an area where the state provides facilities for intensive forms of outdoor recreation by the public. ORDA operates a year-round multi-use recreation area on Whiteface Mountain which provides opportunities for public

use such as competitive and recreational downhill skiing, hiking, mountain biking, and summer scenic gondola rides. ORDA has proposed an amendment to redevelop an existing ski patrol building that is located on the summit of Little Whiteface. The proposed project would enhance the capabilities and services provided to the general public by the Whiteface Mountain Ski Patrol. In addition, the new structure would contain necessary emergency antenna and communication equipment that are critical components of the Essex County public safety radio communication system. The Little Whiteface site is one of 14 locations which the APA approved as part of an overall project to modernize and improve emergency communications for Essex County and New York State. The project has previously been reviewed by the Adirondack Park Agency. The purpose of the UMP amendment is to document the new structures which will be constructed at the site. Review the proposed amendment at html. To access a copy of the Adirondack Park State Land Mas-

ter Plan, visit Comments to the Adirondack Park Agency should focus on the Unit Management Plan amendment in terms of its compliance with the Adirondack Park State Land Master Plan. Comments related to State Land Master Plan compliance should be sent to: James Connolly, APA Deputy Director, Planning Division, P.O. Box 99, Ray Brook, NY 12997; or via email at apa_slmp@gw.dec. The APA Board is scheduled to consider Master Plan compliance for the proposed amendment at the June 13-14 Agency meeting. The Olympic Regional Development Authority is also accepting comments on the proposed action in this Unit Management Plan amendment. Comments will be accepted through May 24. Please send comments related to the proposed action to: Robert W. Hammond, Olympic Regional Development Authority, 2634 Main Street, Lake Placid, N.Y. 12946; call 302-5332 or email

Second terms and three strikes Crown Point sets Memorial Day example I


emorial Day will be observed throughout the North Country, but this weekend belongs to the community of Crown Point. For 145 years it has been marking the occasion, every year since the end of the Civil War, each year a little bigger and better. It may be the longest continuous Memorial Day event in the nation. ThatÍ s the way it should be since Crown Point men played a prominent role in the founding of the Memorial Day holiday. Originally known as Decoration Day, Memorial Day began in the south after the Civil War. Inspired by the bravery displayed A colorguard marches in last year’s Crown Point Memorial Day pain the battle of Gettysburg, the rade. This year’s Memorial Day celebration will be held May 26 and 27. bloodiest fight in American hisPhoto by Nancy Frasier tory with nearly 55,000 causalities, southerners began to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers as a sign of respect and appreciation. The custom quickly spread to the north, where people were just as impressed with the gallantry shown at Gettysburg and throughout the Civil War. New York became the first state to officially recognize Memorial Day in 1873. Crown Point can and should take pride in its own contributions to freedom. Men from Crown Point were at Gettysburg„ a monument stands to their unit there. More than 100 men from Crown Point, an amazing number from a community of its size, formed Company H of the 5th New York Cavalry under the command of John Hammond (A monument to Hammond stands in Crown PointÍ s Forrestdale Cemetery.). The unit distinguished itself throughout the Civil War. Crown Point men also fought in Adirondack Regiment, 118th N.Y., seeing action in many of the Civil WarÍ s bloodiest battles. And those brave souls werenÍ t alone. Crown Point has contributed to each and every American conflict, sometimes making the ultimate sacrifice. This yearÍ s Memorial Day celebration will be held May 26 and 27. Crown Point’s festivities will include an ecumenical church service, a parade, fireworks, amusement rides, entertainment and vendors. But itÍ s important to note the community understands the significance of Memorial Day. Each year’s observance is built around the town’s traditional ñ solemn cemetery tour.î The tour includes stops at each of the communityÍ s cemeteries, where Boy Scouts present the colors, ñ Tapsî is played, the school chorus sings and a speaker notes the importance of the place and people buried there. The tour concludes at the Veterans Monument in the town park at noon. This year’s Memorial Day in Crown Point carries added significance. Crown Point is celebrating the 225th year of its founding. Congratulations to Crown Point for 225 years of history and for 145 years of reminding us of the true meaning of Memorial Day. „ Denton Editorial Board

Time for action To the Valley News: The State of New York must now decide on the best use of the 90-mile stretch of rail corridor that connects Old Forge and Lake Placid. Should railroad service be restored, as ANCA and its chairman Steve Erman consistently proclaim? Or should the underutilized rail bed be converted into a recreational trail for bikers, runners, walkers, nature lovers and snowmobilers? The cost to taxpayers is estimated by the state Department of Transportation to be $48 million (in todayÍ s dollars) for restoring railroad service through the sparsely populated Adirondacks. And this price tag does not even include the very substantial ongoing costs for updating and maintaining the rail infrastructure. It does not include the cost of rolling stock, labor and management. It does not cover the cost of recruitment, training, wages, health insurance, traffic control, fuel, batteries, insurance, utilities, maintenance and storage facilities, snow removal, legal

counsel and regulatory compliance. It does not cover other operational costs that would need to be heavily subsidized by the state (that’s us!) in perpetuity. The massive ongoing costs of this restored rail service, for which there is no public need and no discernible demand, stands in stark contrast to the negligible costs of a recreational trail, which would benefit the people of the State of New York to a much greater extent. The way seems clear. The state should conduct a long-overdue review of its corridor management plan for the entire Adirondack line. It should weigh all the facts, evaluate all the studies, listen to the public, and make the right decision without further dithering. WeÍ ve let this rail corridor„ a precious public resource-languish long enough. It has the potential to be a world-class recreational trail„ a safe, peaceful, scenic pathway connecting Adirondack communities, for people of all ages and physical abilities. There would be nothing like this Adirondack Rail Trail anywhere in the country. It would be the best thing, recreationally and economically, that could happen to the Adirondack Park.

official start time is 8 a.m. At 3 p.m., Rabideau and others will gather at Berkeley Green, where hikers that day must start and finish, to await the new 6ers. Mountains climbed prior to May 25 do not count. ñ ThereÍ s a lot of talk on the street about how fast this will happen,î Rabideau said. ñ WeÍ ve heard anywhere from 9 to 16 hours for the first 6er to come back.” The first three people to complete the circuit will receive a wood spirit walking stick, hand carved by Rick Gonyea. Those who donÍ t place in the top three are still encouraged to ring the 6er bell, located in the Berkeley Green bandshell, six times, a new 6er tradition. An afternoon of events will also take place in the village throughout the day, including Adirondack Trivia with local guide Joe Hackett, live music by Inisheer, and a ñ Walk of Fameî induction for Herb Clark, who became the first Adirondack 46er in 1925.

“This is a program that will last indefinitely,” Rabideau said. “We anticipate that a lot of families and individuals will be doing this throughout the years.î People seeking the coveted 6er patch can take days, weeks or years to climb the mountains, but those who complete them in less than 24 hours will become ñ Ultra 6ers.î To obtain a patch, hikers must mail the following to the Village of Saranac Lake: The date each of the six mountains were climbed, the time at the summit of the last mountain hiked, the applicants mailing and email address, and $5 for postage and handling.

North Country WWII veterans honored all the way to D.C. By Shaun Kittle PLATTSBURGH „ As the sun rose over VermontÍ s Green Mountains on Saturday, May 18, 18 World War II veterans left Plattsburgh to visit the National World War II Memorial in Washington D.C. The trip marked the inaugural flight of North Country Honor Flight, a non-profit organization dedicated to honoring World War II veterans by taking them to the memorial. Hundreds showed up at the Old Base Oval in Plattsburgh for a ceremony to see the veterans off. More than a dozen uniformed troops, who stood at attention as the veterans and their guardians boarded the bus, were also on hand. The crowd cheered and held up signs„ î God bless WWII vets,î ñ One last missionî „ as the bus pulled away at 5:30 a.m., led by a motorcade of motorcycles including the Plattsburgh Harley Owners Group, Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association, the Patriot Guard and the Legion Riders. The procession snaked through Plattsburgh as it headed for Interstate 87 and the Albany Airport, all the while passing crowds of people waving flags and saluting. More motorcyclists joined the growing parade at every exit, and people waited on overpasses to celebrate as the veterans rode by. On board, the veterans were feeling the excitement, too. There was a smile on every wide-eyed face, and many stood to watch as motorcycles zipped by, leaving tracers of red, white and blue in their wake. ñ This is so much more than I expected,î said U.S. Navy veteran Ralph P. Filion as he peered over the seat in front of him to watch a motorcyclist pass the bus, his long gray beard plastered against his face. ñ A lot of us donÍ t talk because it brings back bad memories. As many years ago as it happened, itÍ s never far away.î Filion, who entered the Navy on May 18, 1944, and received an honorable discharge March 10, 1946, spent time on a destroyer in the Atlantic Ocean. His shipÍ s job was to escort a convoy of 100 American ships to ReykjavÕ k, Iceland, in submarine infested waters.

Alfred Kurtz, of Elizabethtown, was one of 18 World War II veterans on the inaugural North Country Honor Flight to the World War II Memorial in Washington D.C. Kurtz served for three years in the U.S. Army and spent most of that time in a stockade in Naples, Italy, where he did guard duty as a military police officer. ñ We had to destroy the subs before they could get to the fleet,” Filion said. Submarines werenÍ t the only threat, though. ñ There was one time when we hit an iceberg, and it put a big split in the ship,î Filion said. ñ That was close. It put a crack in the bottom and we began taking on water.î They made it back to Virginia, where the ship was welded and sent back out. Filion also served in Panama and the South Pacific ñ We were never told what was going on,î Filion said. ñ I donÍ t know how many days we were on the water (in the South Pacific). We were waiting for the Enola Gay.î The Enola Gay, a Boeing B-29 Superfortress bomber, was flown by Col. Paul Tibbets. The plane is famous for dropping the atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan. ñ I had switched ships from a destroyer to an assault ship,î Filion said. ñ We had 3000 marines aboard when they dropped the atomic bomb. When that happened we went into a bay in Japan.î Filion said that, once they surrendered, the Japanese troops were good to the American troops. ñ The war was over,î Filion said. ñ They fought a war just like we did, I guess.î Veterans on Honor Flights are accompanied by

guardians, volunteers who make sure they have a safe trip. FilionÍ s guardian was his daughter, Michelle Filion-Schon, who drove to Plattsburgh from Pottstown, Pa., to join her father on the flight. ñ I think this could very well be the best day of both of our lives,î Filion-Schon said. ñ IÍ m so blessed to be there with him when he sees the memorial for the first time. This is the first time he’s ever been appreciated as a veteran.î William H. Thompson, who also served with the U.S. Navy in World War II, enlisted in Albany on his 17th birthday in 1944. After completing boot camp in Geneva, he was sent to San Diego for amphibious training, which meant he would be transporting troops for ships to land during battle. ñ The USS is Navy, and the SS is merchant marines„ half Army and half Marines,î Thompson said. ñ The Army we dumped off in Okinawa, and the marines went to Hiroshima.î Thompson said that, due to circumstances he was unaware of, his company was dropped off in Hiroshima too early. ñ We werenÍ t supposed to be there yet, so we had to stay far enough off shore so we couldnÍ t be hit,î Thompson said. ñ Eventually we picked up a hospital ship and stayed there for a few days until it




went back to Hiroshima. ThatÍ s when all hell broke loose.î When Thompson finally finished in 1946, he had seen 18 months of sea duty in the Pacific. As the bus pulled up to the Albany Airport, Thompson went silent as he saw the hundreds of people who were gathered there, waiting to greet the veterans. His silence was borne of appreciation. ñ This is really something,î he said. ñ I feel honored.î Each veteran exited the bus with his guardian, and each pair was met with a wave of enthusiasm and, as Thompson had indicated, appreciation. They were treated like movie stars walking down the red carpet or, more appropriately, they were treated like heroes who sacrificed their lives for the safety of others. ThompsonÍ s guardian, Plattsburgh State student Yohanna Mueller, was also moved by the turnout. ñ The fact that weÍ re honoring veterans in such a way shows me that Americans still care,î Mueller said. ñ ItÍ s not political, itÍ s not about money or about whatÍ s right or wrong. ItÍ s just about what people want to do personally.î In Albany, the North Country Honor Flight veterans were joined by the Leatherstocking Honor Flight of Cobbleskill, NY. Together, the two groups brought about 55 veterans to Washington D.C. But before they boarded the plane, they were treated to a short send-off ceremony that included a live Army band and several speeches. ñ ItÍ s heartwarming to know that so many people stll care,î said North Country Honor Flight Guardian Coordinator Kimberly Bouissey as she fought back tears. ñ These veterans havenÍ t been forgotten.î

Langelier-Lebeda’s ‘Shorelines,’ at Artists Guild SARANAC LAKE „ ñ Shorelines,î a solo exhibit of new drawings by Suzanne Langelier-Lebeda, will open on Friday, May 31 at the Adirondack Artists Guild, with a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. The images, inspired by Adirondack streams and riverbanks, are drawings of places that hold particular significance for the artist. The exhibit will run through July 1. ñ Expressing the limitless metaphors of promise in nature is my work.î Suzanne writes. ñ How to look for and recognize the message, how to absorb it, how to let it become its own line and form is the focus of my work. The photographs I take are the frameworks that isolate what captures my attention in natural formations, like the complexity of entangled roots and rocks along the banks, brooks, narrow streams and rivers in the Adirondacks. “The drawings define the composition within those frameworks that hold the essence of each message,î she added. ñ ItÍ s a reductive process to tease out clarity from complexity and away from distracting, extraneous elements. I use natural tools: graphite, carbon and wood„ pencils on paper. Graphite, the grey shades of hard light to soft dark; the muted palette of tinted graphite and the black, bold lines of carbon best define the energy of the image. What I enjoy most is the thought-to-handto-paper connection between the paper and me, using a natural

History matters series wraps up for Historic Saranac Lake

SARANAC LAKE „ Historic Saranac Lake announced that the last of its four ñ History Mattersî discussions in May will feature the topic of quilting in the Adirondacks. The talk is hosted in conjunction with the Lake Placid North Elba Historical Society. Hallie E. Bond, former curator at the Adirondack Museum, will present her lecture titled ñ Common Threads: Adirondack Quilts Tell Their Stories,î on May 30 at 7 p.m. at the Lake Placid Historical Society, located in Lake Placid at 242 Station Street. The talk is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided. The event has been made possible through the support of the New York Council on the HumanitiesÍ Speakers in the Humanities Program. New YorkÍ s Adirondack region has been the home of a vibrant quilting tradition for over 150 years. These patchwork quilts record the hardships of life in the Adirondacks among close-knit families and communities, as well as the influence of a wild natural beauty. They document national quilting trends, while also displaying delight in the creation of art from bits of fabric. In this lecture we explore the common threads running through Adirondack quilts, as well the diverse influences on the region’s quilting traditions. From plain and fancy bedcovers meant to keep families warm during long mountain winters, to the stunning art quilts of the 21st century, the audience learns how Adirondack quilts tell unique stories of life in New YorkÍ s mountains, while also holding up a mirror to national trends. Hallie E. Bond has written extensively on regional history and material culture since joining the Adirondack Museum in 1983. Her books include Boats and Boating in the Adirondacks (1995) and ñ A Paradise for Boys and Girls:î ChildrenÍ s Camps in the Adirondacks (2005). Bond has a B.A. in History (University of Colorado), an M.A. in Medieval Studies (University of York) and an M.A. in American History with a Certificate in Museum Studies (University of Delaware).
