NORTH HUDSON Ñ On April 30, George Moore went to the Best Western Plus Inn and Suites in Ticonderoga and joined the 151 other folks who registered to bid on the 105 parcels that Essex County had seized from delinquent taxpayers and were now auctioning off to the highest bidder. Moore thought the four parcels adjacent to his holdings would make a good addition to his portfolio. When he left the auction that afternoon, he assumed his winning bid of $49,500 sealed the deal. Not so fast. On Monday, May 12, the Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to reject MooreÕ s bid and kick the property, which is located at the intersection of Blue Ridge Road and Route 9, over to the town of North Hudson for $60,000. Aside from the town, Moore, an 87-year-old who runs a scrap metal yard in Keeseville, has the most invested in this decision. He owns, and pays taxes on the so-called A-Frame, a large structure that once anchored Frontier Town, the now-shuttered theme park whose fate county officials have spent much of the year debating. The lot, according to materials provided by the firm that brokered the sale, spans 88 acres and has a market value of $568,900. CONTINUED ON PAGE 7

TICONDEROGA Ñ The LaChute Road Runners Club will again present the Duane Crammond Memorial Scholarship this spring. The $1,000 award will go to a Ticonderoga High School graduate who participated in varsity cross country and/or track & field who attends college full-time. The winner, selected by a scholarship committee, will be a person who reflects the strong academic, athletic and character traits of Crammond. He died in a car accident in 2005 at age 24. Scholarship applications are available at the Ticonderoga High School guidance office, by contacting Matt Karkoski, scholarship chairman, at 585-7206, and online at http://www.lachute.us/misc_PDF/Scholarship.pdf Application deadline is June 9. This year will mark $11,000 in scholarships awarded in CrammondÕ s memory by the LaChute Road Runners Club. Ò Duane was a great runner, but he was so much more,Ó Karkoski said. Ò He set a great example for younger runners through his

work ethic and determination to succeed. Ò WeÕ re pleased we can honor Duane with a scholarship and, at the same time, help someone meet their college goals,Ó he added. Those who wish to donate toward the scholarship can send contributions to Karkoski at 25 Black Point Road, Ticonderoga 12883. Crammond, the valedictorian of the Ti High Class of 1999, was a cross country and track champion in high school. He went on to become an honor student at RPI, where he majored in engineering and was captain of the collegeÕ s cross country team. He was also the leading distance runner on RPIÕ s indoor and outdoor track teams. After graduation from college, Crammond dominated local races. In 2003 he won the Montcalm Mile in Ticonderoga and the Race the Train event in North Creek. He was third in the Whiteface Uphill Run in Wilmington, fourth in the Prospect Mountain Road Race in Lake George and fifth in the Lake George to Bolton Adirondack Distance Run. He capped that season by winning the Adirondack Marathon in Schroon Lake.

Talent wanted: residency not required

T

he race to replace Congressman Bill Owens (D-Plattsburgh), the well-liked two-termer who announced his retirement in January, has grown putrid. This isnÕ t the fault of either one candidate or the other, but rather the natural byproduct of our political system and the modern-day political warfare hatched by Lee Atwater and perfected by Karl Rove, the political operative who caused waves last week with the suggestion that Hillary Clinton, the presumptive frontrunner for the 2016 Presidential Election, had suffered brain damage following a 2012 head injury. Just sayinÕ , he later shrugged. But upon being released into the cesspool that constitutes our national dialogue, the facts or the context behind his statements were no longer important: the well had been poisoned, which was the original goal. The race to fill Owens’ seat hasn’t been defined by the critical issues facing the district, but rather around the revolving carousel of cheap talking points that even the dimmest and most feeble minds would probably find transparent. ItÕ s insulting. Perhaps the most insidious is the residency issue that has both sides and their entourages Ñ including the national committees for the two major parties who are now pumping major resources into a crucial race that will help determine which party will control the House Ñ crying foul. We think that candidates donÕ t have to be North Country natives in order to adequately represent the district. You donÕ t have to live here full-time. Elise Stefanik, one of two Republicans seeking to capture the seat, was born in Albany County. After spending her twenties working in a series of unspecified jobs with fancy titles in Washington, she moved to Willsboro in mid-2013 and announced her candidacy. ThatÕ s perfectly okay. Aaron Woolf, the Democratic candidate, has been dogged since the rollout of his candidacy in mid-February that he is a cosmopolitan carpetbagger from New York City who only resides in Elizabethtown seasonally. Whatever. Matt Doheny, a sixth-generation North Country resident, prides himself on being the only candidate in the race who is really, legitimately, truly from here (never mind Green Party candidate Matt Funiciello, who was born in Saratoga Springs and lives in Glens Falls but doesnÕ t wear it on his sleeve) and has used it as a common talking point through his campaign, his third for the seat. Good for him. What are you going to do for the North Country? The relationship between residency, place of birth and job effectiveness are only connected by the most tenuous of strands. We should instead be focusing on more important skills like communication, negotiation and the ability to secure federal funds that can boost the districtÕ s moribund economy. The candidates should be grilled on their ability to propose practical, common sense legislation and avoid the wedge issues that generate the pure emotional responses that derail rational discussion. This is what the voters want. This is what local lawmakers want. This is what the candidates themselves appear to want. The only people who give a toss about the residency issue are the Karl Roves of the world. The demographics for the district are not in our favor: WeÕ re older than the rest of the country. WeÕ re losing more people. WeÕ re sicker, poorer and less educated. Public services and civic institutions that were once thought of as inviolable — schools, fire departments, emergency responders, churches, non-profits — are crumbling into dust. We are dying. So if we’re facing an influx of outsiders — whether they’re seasonal residents, Adirondack admirers or simply folks who want to better the quality of life here and want the district to have a loud voice at the national level Ñ we should listen to what they have to say and push them on where they stand on the issues, not where they sleep at night.

Letters to the Editor To the Times of Ti: In the Editorial Minimum wage: Where they stand, the Denton Publications Editorial Board paraphrases Moriah Supervisor Thomas Scozzafava as stating that he supported raising the minimum wage Ò here were large numbers of the working poor in the Adirondacks.Ó Ò If you work, in my opinion, you have the right to support yourself and a family.Ó SHEESH!! Since when did it become the duty of American business to provide a living wage for employees simply because they want to work? This is not even Economics 101, but pregrade school economics and common sense 101. Having owned several businesses, I can assure anyone that the purpose of American business is to monetize marketable ideas, not provide jobs. The best businesses are those that require the fewest employees! Job creation is an added benefit of business ideas, not a goal in itself! I guarantee that jobs - and businesses - will be lost in the Adirondacks if the minimum wage is raised, even incrementally. As sad as it is, most barely minimum wage employees are so because they just donÕ t have many marketable skills. In the Adirondacks, this view may not be so obvious, but in California where I live, and in most of the country, there are hordes of uneducated - many of them barely literate - employees demanding that the government take care of them - yes, I use the words Ò take care of them,Ó deliberately - by mandating a high minimum wage. The situation has been totally politicized by the Obama administrationÕ s pandering to its allies, especially the SEIU. Instead of minimum wage-pandering by minimal-intelligence politicians, low marketability persons need help to acquire better work skills through better education. Unfortunately, the dumbing down of the U.S. education system and failure to acknowledge social problems due to overcrowding by the same politicians makes this almost impossible. Schools used to teach the three Ò RÕ sÓ : reading, Ô riting and Ô rithmetic -- marketable skills. Now they teach Ò Free Willie,Ó Ò Save the whales,Ó Ò Sue your employer,Ó and other such feel-good non-marketable nonsense. The irony is that freeing Willie and saving whales requires knowledge of reading, writing and arithmetic - not to mention serious science! To further quote DentonÕ s paraphrasing of Supervisor Scozzafava [who again sticks his foot in his mouth by, Ò highlighting the pay gap between corporate executives and rank-and-file workers.Ó Ò They pay their top people the equivalent of a thousand of their employees or more a year,Ó he said, before interjecting he was Ò not against capitalism.Ó He may not be against Capitalism, but he certainly doesnÕ t understand how it works!

County Continued from page 1 At the meeting, County Attorney Daniel Manning and other officials were quick to point out that the denial was permissible under the saleÕ s terms and conditions. North Hudson Town Supervisor Ronald Moore, no relation to George, pinned his request to an ongoing issue that is common in the North Country: How to grow the economy while simultantiously facing state regulations. Ò Ninety percent of the townÕ s land is owned

Why in fact would any business pay its top executives hundreds of times more salary than rank and file empoyees if they didnÕ t deserve it? ItÕ s called supply and demand. Good CEOÕ s are worth a lot of money. The reason is experience, special skills and, especially, accountability which the rank and file don’t have. When the tax people and lawyers come after the business -and all businesses get sued sooner or later, they go after the CEO, not the employees. Only the naive believe that CEOÕ s never have sleepless nights and happily live only a carefree life of luxury playing golf! If the benefits of a high minimum wage for unskilled employees are so great, why not raise the minimum to, say, $100 an hour? Or, even better, $500 an hour. Denton Publications certainly wouldnÕ t mind such an altruistic wage increase because Ò If you work, [in my opinion,] you have the right to support yourself and a family.Ó All they would need to do is sell a few more newspapers (or hamburgers, gasoline or whatever else for other businesses) to cover their increased costs, as proponents of a high minimum wage want an uninformed populace to believe! I guarantee that Denton Publications would be forced to let employees go if the hypothetical $100 per hour wage increases were not countered by $100 per hour higher productivity recovery by the remaining employees. Not only that, but it will be the less-skilled employees who Ò have the [most?] right to support yourself and a family,Ó who will be replaced by more productive ones! As an employer, Denton Publications should be keenly aware of this and only support minimum wage increases driven by the supply and demand needs of a business Ò not by living wage needs of the business,Ó employees. David Safrany Half Moon Bay, Calif.

Major storms down To the Times of Ti: GoreÕ s ClimateReality programs perpetrate predictions of increasing hurricanes, floods, violent storms, droughts, etc. and blame it on CO2. However, the IPCC reports “low confidence” there has been or will be an increase in hurricanes or droughts, or that humans will contribute to any changes in these events in the foreseeable future! In other words: high confidence there hasn’t been and will not be increases in these events or human contribution to them. It seems strange to make predictions if they are of low confidence - unless they can be used to scare people. Since 1910, the average number of major hurricanes striking the U.S. has been seven per decade. Each of the last five decades since 1960 has been below seven, averaging 5.6; the five previous decades averaged 8.4.

by the state,Ó he told the board. Ò This is critical to our economic welfare. ItÕ s one of the few properties in town that can be developed.Ó Moore said while he did not speak directly with George Moore, nor did he attend the auction or send a representative to directly bid on the property, his sources indicated the latter would not develop the plot, but would rather flip it, something that the supervisor said he felt would not be in the townÕ s best economic interest. George Moore could not be reached for comment by the time this story went to press. If Ron MooreÕ s request winds its way through the legislative process, the full board

ItÕ s similar for tornados. NOAA says Doppler radar, Ò has led to an increase in the number of reported weaker tornadosÉ This can create a misleading appearance of an increasing trend in tornado frequency.Ó NOAAÕ s data show a downward trend for EF3-EF5 tornados. In the 20 years 1954-1974, there were seven years with 70 or more strong tornados; in the 40 years since, only one year exceeded 70. Note that the last 40 years have had the highest temperatures; the previous 20 years ran cooler (recall the ice age scare circa 1970?). These data indicate negative relationship between strong tornados and climatic temperature, and also between strong tornados and atmospheric CO2. Ditto major hurricanes. One example of extreme weather is the blizzard of frightening reports, far more extreme than the underlying science theyÕ re supposedly summarizing. One made a big media splash just in time for April FoolÕ s Day, another in early May.

Dan is a well known Adirondack folk singer who lived in Minerva for many years. During his presentation he spoke and sang about his uncle Harry who carried the mail to people living around Minerva 100 years ago. He also sang about the lumberjacks who had the dangerous task of freeing up log jams that developed in the Hudson when trees harvested in the Adirondacks were sent downstream each Spring. Dan played recordings that he had made of family members and other Adirondack folk who recalled many songs written about Adirondack life. One was called Pat Malone and it told the very funny tale of a man who faked his death so his family could collect the life insurance. However, he had second thoughts when the dirt was being shoveled on his coffin. Dan Berggren has played with folk greats in the Adirondacks and around the country. He also has a Facebook site. No doubt he will be appearing once again at the annual Schroon Lake Adirondack folk festival later this summer. The event is free and always features high quality performers. I want to thank the Schroon Lake School High Honor Society for sponsoring this event and Dan Berggren for his life-long dedication to preserving the music of the Adirondack mountains. Pete Winkler Schroon Lake

will vote on it in early-June. Moore, the town supervisor, said while he envisions large-scale development for the property in the future Ñ including possible industrial development, something that is permissible under Adirondack Park Agency regulations because the parcel is located within the hamlet, a land designation that offers the maxium potential for development Ñ for now, he would like to sculpt an area for recreational usage that would capitalize on the townÕ s location as a node for snowmobiling trails that fan out throughout the Adirondacks. Ò IÕ m opposed to the principle of taking it

out of the free market and putting it into the governmentÕ s hands,Ó said Minerva Town Supervisor Stephen McNally. Ò But if this is going to better the community, then I fully support it.Ó No other parcels were pulled on Monday. But upon Schroon Lake Town Supervisor Mike MarnellÕ s request, a lot in his town was set aside, not fully rejected, so that the parties could hash out easement rights for snowmobiling access, the burgeoning industry that advocates say would offer a lifeline to the regionÕ s ailing economy. In total, $146,379.88 in back taxes are owed to the county on the property.

VFW welcomes 5th graders Essex County Historical Society appoints director TICONDEROGA Ñ On Thursday, May 8, the Fifth grade class of Ticonderoga High School arrived at the V.F.W. home, located on the Shore Air Port Road for a lesson of war. Under the guidance of school teachers Mrs. Moore, assistants Mrs. Thorn, and Miss Young, Mr. Fish as chaperon, the following VFW members, main speaker Mr. Thomas Provoncha, with helpers Past Commander Mr. Bernie Meagher, Post Quartermaster Mr. Charles Campney, and past Quarter master Mr. Charles Ò GusherÓ Smith, about 50 boys and girls enjoyed a morning session of entertainment. Mr. Provoncha, an expert on the tools of war kept everyone interested as he described his large assortment of guns, gas masks, shells, grenades, and just about every aspect needed to be an efficient soldier. The boys and girls were deeply interested and learned much about the duties of being a soldier. Then, with the help of Ton, Bernie, and Charlie, each student tried on the equipment, handled the guns and other equipment. Meanwhile, Gusher drew attention to the many ships and pictures and plaques that hung on the post walls. Gusher was quite proud of his ship, a 20,000 ton destroyer, the 696, the English. He showed where he was stationed on that ship, as a second class torpedo man, and a little about his duties and the ships accomplishments. The morning went by quickly and all to soon, the school bus back to take the class to their regular classes. The Post would like to thank the teachers that were present and also Mr. Keith Barber for his part in arranging for the class visits. As a former Fifth grade teacher, he has done this for the past few years and itÕ s a big hit with the students as they are getting war experience from men who have been there. Mr. Smith is a veteran of WWII, Mr. Meagher is a veteran from the Korean War, Mr. Provoncha is from the Vietnam War, and Mr. Campney is from the Iraqi War. These men cover a long history of conflict. On another note, the Post has a beautiful camping spot on the high ground above their home and we invite scouting groups to use it. There are three lee-too a large flag pole on site, thanks to Scout Troop 72 of Ticonderoga. They are really nice. The weekend of May 10, Miss Corene Woods and her Cub Scout pack no. 72 are spending some time there. Bet they had a great time. For more information please call Mr. Provoncha at 585-7869 or VFW Post 146 at phone no. 585-6350 or Commander of our post, Mr. Harry Treadway at 585-7869 or VFW post 146 at phone no. 585-9282 for a recording.

Ò We were able to get a New York State Water Fund Improvement Grant and took advantage of that.Ó Harrington said the funding became available in part because the town had to take care of a situation created when the town sewer system was being worked on. Ò There was a retaining wall that was cut, collapsed and became a severe liability,Ó Harrington said. Harrington said the boat docking area is safe and the town is hoping to add more slips in the future. Ò We are looking to qualify for another grant for waterfront improvements,Ó he said. Currently, the town campsite has 43 sites, seven of which are open. Ò We always get pretty close to full,Ó Harrington said. Ò We have a couple sites that stay open for travelers and a couple site for tenters. Overall, we have a tight group of campers here at the park.Ó For more information, contact the Crown Point town hall at 597-3035.

Marathon running takes David Bruce to Civil War battleground

50692

VICKSBURG, Mo. Ñ David V. Bruce, former native of Port Henry, has now completed in 30 different states and is working toward his goal of becoming a member of Ò The 50 States Marathon Club.Ó Bruce said he recently ran the Mississippi Blues Marathon in Jackson, Mo. which was close to the National Battlefield of Vicksburg. As Bruce explained participating in marathon events is more than running, much more. You have the opportunity to travel throughout the country, visit places and cities you would not normally go to and meet some of the most interesting people in the world. This caused him to reflect on this year’s Memorial Day and remembering the Civil War. This war was a transitional war. It was said to be the last of the Ò old fashion warÓ in which men charged in mass formation with generals out in front. He said based on his readings and research, the Yanks and the Rebs often had friendly get together between battles to talk, sing, drink and gamble. It perhaps also could be said was the first of the modern wars by the use of railroads, revolvers, rifled artillery, reporters from newspapers as well as artist and cameramen. It was the largest war fought on this continent. The American Revolution had less than half a million participants but over the period from 1861 through 1865 there were over two million Northerners which included the 118th Adirondack Regiment and about one million Southerners fighting. Prior to the Civil War, many felt both in the North and South that the states could withdraw from the Union if they did not like the action of the federal system. They were wrong; the Civil War established the national authority. This is one area that sometimes is overlooked as we view the vision of President Lincoln. In BruceÕ s visit to Vicksburg, he said he did not appreciate how important Vicksburg was to the success or failure of the respective sides. Vicksburg was

known as Ò The Gibraltar of the MississippiÓ because it was located on major curve in the river high above the bottom land which controlled the flow of goods and services of the mid-west to the gulf. Lincoln said it was a key to winning the war and it was also the battle and established Ulysses S. Grant as the new commander of the Union forces. As a side bar, Grant later went onto write his memories in a cabin just outside of Saratoga Springs highlights what was done in Vicksburg. The area where the battle took place was like trying to work your way up Chilson Hill through the woods with some real good sharp shooters taken aim at you. It was tough. The Union could not take it, so they established a prolong siege that last 47 days. Finally, Lt. General John Pemberton surrendered on July 4, 1863 with more than 37,000 soldiers on both sides as well as women and children had died or were wounded. The Vicksburg National Cemetery, which is extremely well maintained, is the second largest National Cemetery in the U.S. embracing 116 acres with 17,000 Union soldiers interned. Bruce said this was

viewed as such a place of honor. But when he traveled across town, it was a different matter. The sign said, Ò Soldiers Rest C.S.A. Cemetery,Ó which showed limited recourses had been employed and begged

the question, why. Over this period of four years, 618,000 men from the North and South died in the Civil War conflict from all causes. It ended slavery. It is still true today that we declare war or fight to solve problems. It does not appear we have made much progress in this area. Bruce worked for the Cornell UniversityÕ s Extension System, spending many years in the field of Community Development with leaders in government, business, Native Americans and education. He said a democracy is at best difficult to manage but it is by far the best system we presently have before us. It appears at this time and space; however, we lack compassion and the desire to seek greater understanding. The economics that drive the train appears to be consumed with winning. Maybe, we are active participants. There must be a better way and there is; we just have not worked hard enough to find it. -Submitted by David Bruce

Veverka earns Glens Falls Community Theatre scholarships GLENS FALLS Ñ The Glens Falls Community Theatre awarded $2,500 in scholarships to three area high school students who are attending college and will pursue a degree in music, music education, theater, dance or technical theater. Mark Collier, chairman of the Scholarship Committee, presented two $1,000 scholarships to area high school students who are vocalists. They are: Delaney Silvernell, a high school junior, who plans to graduate early from Queensbury High School in June and will attend Berklee College of Music in the fall to study Professional Music with a concentration in Vocal Performance; and Kelly Meehan, who plans to graduate from

Schuylerville High School in June and will attend Ithaca College in the fall to study Vocal Performance and Music Education. The $500 Stan Gericke Scholarship was awarded to Abigail Veverka, who received the scholarship for her instrumental audition. She plans to graduate from Schroon Lake Central School in June and attend Nazareth College in the fall to study Music Therapy. The Glens Falls Community Theatre has donated more than $100,000 in scholarships to talented area students over the past 79 years. Students in 24 school districts in Warren, Washington, and Northern Saratoga Counties were invited to apply for the Glens Falls Com-

munity Theatre scholarships. To apply, applicants needed to be area high school graduates who have been accepted by a four-year college or university and will be pursuing a degree in music, music education, theater, dance or technical theater. Each applicant was required to audition for, and be interviewed by, a panel of judges. Auditions could be a vocal or instrumental solo, a dance performance, a brief dramatic excerpt, reading or monologue. Students receive their scholarships after they have completed their first semester of college. Paul E. Bergan and Edgar S. Pitkin founded the Glens Falls Community Theatre originally known as the Glens Falls Operetta Club in 1935.

Moriah town, school look for more ways to team up, please Gov. By Keith Lobdell

keith@denpubs.com MORIAH Ñ It doesnÕ t matter what you have done in the past, Gov. Andrew Cuomo wants more when it comes to municipalities working together. The Town of Moriah is working with the Moriah Central School District to appease the stateÕ s chief administrator. Ò There are things that we have done over the past couple of years and there is more we can do that can be a savings to the school and to the town, which means a savings for the taxpayers,Ó Supervisor Tom Scozzafava said. Ò If we can work together, then we can see the state rebate. The town, village and school all came in under the cap this year and next year we have to show a savings through shared services which we can do.Ó Ò We do share equipment with each other which prevents us from going out and having to buy the same piece of equipment the other may already have,Ó Superintendent Bill Larrow said. Ò I donÕ t think there is a time when we are doing something that we do not think of each other.Ó Scozzafava and Larrow both said while they hope to meet CuomoÕ s plan for a pro-

posed tax rebate in the next tax cycle, they still do not know all of the details. Ò We do not have enough information right now,Ó Scozzafava said. Ò The question we have is how much is that rebate going to be. We want to have everything in place, though.Ó “I looked for any specific information after the last time I met with Tom and I couldn’t find any,” Larrow added. Currently, the two entities share several services. The town provides police staffing at all Moriah varsity football games played at Linney Field for a flat rate of $50 per game. Ò They used to pay an hourly salary for police at the games,Ó Scozzafava said. Ò Steve (Stahl, Police Chief) builds the schedule around the football games so there is coverage. It saves the school from paying extra money for security.Ó The town and school have also combined on a playground grant through the Creating Healthy Places program, with the town purchasing equipment through the grant and the school providing the property. Ò The school owns the property in Grover Hills while the town has the basketball courts,Ó Scozzafava said. Ò This is a joint effort to put this park in.Ó

The town also helps the school with snow plowing and salting services. Ò We were both buying salt and since the school was buying less, they were paying a higher price,Ó Scozzafava said. Ò Now, we have that together for a bulk price.Ó The school is also purchasing new water meters which the town will install along with sharing any surplus equipment. Ò The current driverÕ s education car is our old police car,Ó Scozzafava said. Ò ItÕ s little things as well that can save both of us money.Ó Larrow said the two also do a lot to support each other with the local youth commission. Ò We host a lot of the town youth programs and maintain the fields,” Larrow said. Ò We talk about quite a few things and how we can help each other.Ó Scozzafava said he feels there is a more open line of communication between the two entities. Ò The school and the town has never had the relationship that we have now,Ó he said. Ò With Bill, it has been more than just a school. It has been a community center and the building is being used by all of the taxpayers.Ó

Cheney Mt. trail excursion part of National Trails Day events

We little knew that morning, God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly. In death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, You didn’t go alone. For parts of us went with you, The day God called you home. You left us beautiful memories, Your love is still our guide, And though we cannot see you, You’re always by our side. Our family chain is broken And nothing seems the same, But as God calls us one by one The chain will link again.

Mountains, waterfalls and just too much fun T

he day began bright and sunny, with large puffy, clouds racing across the sky, driven by the strong winds. A high pressure front had moved in after a series of heavy storms had battered the adjacent High Peaks the previous day. The foul weather had all of the local rivers and streams running high with runoff. As I passed through Keene, the East Branch of the Ausable was roaring, but the waters were relatively clear. I though it was unusual as the West Branch flow had the appearance of chocolate milk when I had crossed over it in Lake Placid fifteen minutes earlier. As I approached Elizabethtown, driving along Rt. 9N, all the little streams were flowing with a frothy tumble, and yet The Branch, a beautiful little stream that begins on the shoulders of Hurricane Mountain, was as clear freshly cleaned window. In Elizabethtown, where the Boquet River was nearly bursting over it’s banks, the flow was likewise unusually clear for such a seemingly heavy runoff. I had traveled to Elizabethtown with the intention of visiting a the local streams, and casting a few flies, but it was painfully obvious that although the will was strong, the way was impossible. Fishing in such conditions is fruitless, as itÕ s nearly impossible to keep a fly on the water long enough for a fish to see it. As a result, I chose the next best option, which was to enjoy the remainder of the sunny day while enjoying the roar of a waterfall or two. When it comes to waterfalls, Essex County is the place to go, as it has more waterfalls within itÕ s boundaries than any other county in the state. It is understandable, as the county is also home to the tallest mountains in the state, and we all know water flows downhill. My first stop was at US Falls, a popular swimming hole on the outskirts of Elizabethtown, where the tumbling Branch is squeezed through a smooth bedrock gorge to create a series of spectacular waterfalls. The location features the remains of several old dams that once harnessed the river’s flow to power a tannery, a mill and an electric generating station. Today, all that remains is a battered old dam, a grist stone, and numerous concrete bases that once cradled a spillway and delivered the flow to a cinderblock powerhouse. After basking for awhile at the base of the soaring falls, and mar-

veling at the passing rainbows that continued to show in the mist of the thunderous flow; I decided to head south in the direction of the upper sections of the Boquet River near the location of the infamous Ô Malfunction JunctionÕ , aka The Crazy Eights where Route 9 and Route 73 converge and diverge. Located a short distance from the intersection of these two main routes is the junction of the North Fork and the South Fork of the Bouquet River which flow precipitously out of Dix Range. There are easy to follow foot trails located along the banks of both branches, as well as a number of vehicle accessible campsites along the river banks. The forests nearby the riverbed feature a combination of old growth white pine, cedar and hemlock which offer a sharp contrast to the surrounding hills which are covered with wide open hardwoods composed primarily of birch and aspen. The open hardwoods are a remnant of the great fires that swept through the region in the late 1800’s. Although the trees are currently leafing out, the hillsides remain mostly wide open as do the riverbanks which have been scoured repeatedly in recent years as a result of historic high water events. Short of taking a trout or two on the fly, there is likely nothing I enjoy more than simply walking along a river corridor. Although I’ve paddled and fished most of the local waters numerous times, I always seem to stumble upon something new, unique or interesting whenever I travel the riverbanks rather than the riverbed. When IÕ m wading the rivers, I concentrate on the fish, while on the riverbanks my full attention is centered on the land. Often itÕ s just a well worn foot trail, the last vestiges of a former roadway, the abutment of a bridge or a long lost, rusted old, road sign. It is easy to forget that our current roadways were often rerouted over the years, and many of the once popular overlooks are no longer visited. This is especially true along Route 73, where there remains ample evidence of sections of the old route. Although vegetation has reclaimed many of the old banks, it is easy to find the former overlooks, many of which remain littered with the disagreed bottles, tires, wheels and vehicles of 19th and 20th century travelers. In fact, the route of the former Route 9 is still paved as follows through an old forest along the right bank of the South Fork of the Boquet, which is located just off Route 73. The old bridge abut-

ments are still in place, located about a 100 yards downriver from the current bridge over the South Fork of the Boquet on Route 73. Having completed my investigation of the tumultuous tumbling branches of the upper Boquet, I returned to Elizabethtown after enjoying a quick visit to Split Rock Falls. At Split Rock, the combined flow of the two forks created a snapping, snarling, thunderous flow which had reduced the popular swimming holeÕ s three distinct pools into one long, white ribbon of froth and foam. The power of the river was palatable and hypnotic. As I stood on the bank, high above the thunderous ribbon in the stream bed below, I could feel the ground shaking underfoot. There was a thick mist was in the air, which created thousands of miniature rainbows on shafts of sunlight that trickled through the limbs of the towering white pines. It was a surreal scene, and the pounding of the thunderous waters pounding could be felt underfoot. There was the incessant mist on my face, and the sparkle of a million droplets in the air and on the pines. The ground vibrated underfoot, even though it was insulated with a thick carpet of pine needles. The power of the rumbling water was consuming and hypnotic. I could feel it sucking me in as I stood on a ledge high above the flow, and I knbew it was time to go. As I readied to depart, a trio of kayakers pulled off the road and into the small parking lot. They were wearing wet suits, and hurried to retrieve their squirt boats from the roof rack, before hustling down to the river. Ò YouÕ re not going to attempt that are you?Ó , I asked them, Ò YouÕ ve got to nuts!Ó Ò WeÕ ve run it three times already, and we can probably get in another three trips before the sun goes downÓ one fellow replied. He quickly turned away and walked towards the river where his friends were already putting in. Ò I gotta go!Ó I shook my head, and walked back to my car without looking back. Although I really wanted to stay and watch the scene, I was afraid it would spark some special sense of the past in me, when I too had taken off in a kayak on the very same river. Although IÕ m much older now, and possibly a fair bit wiser; I really didnÕ t want to let that genie out of the bottle again, because it was just too much fun!
