LAKE PLACID Ñ Almost 200 people made their way into the main screening room at the Palace Theatre in Lake Placid April 26 to help launch a campaign to keep small town movie cinemas in the Adirondack region alive. The Ò Go Digital or Go DarkÓ Campaign, a collaborative fundraiser between the Adirondack North Country Association and the Adirondack Film Society, started with a premiere of a Ò movie trailerÓ that will be shown in local theaters about their need to convert from film to digital technology since movie companies will stop sending out film reels within the next six months.

Juniors to hold events

ELIZABETHTOWN Ñ The Elizabethtown-Lewis Central School Class of 2014 will host a car wash, bottle drive and bake sale Saturday, May 4. The car wash and bottle drive will start at 10 a.m. at the school, while the bake sale will begin at 9 a.m. at Grand Union.

Continued from page 1 Ó Two days in the beginning of June the DEC will send someone up there to see if there is activity involving the BicknellÕ s Thrush,Ó Douglas said. Ò They will then look to see if our activity is close enough to impact them and if not, then we will move on. If it is, then we will look at quiet time in the morning when there would be no power tools or equipment used. I think the end result is everyone is going to be happy, including the BicknellÕ s Thrush.Ó Douglas said he had talked with staffers from Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office as well as the DEC and APA over the past week to make sure a plan was in place

and was thankful to them for their cooperation and hard work to reach an agreement. This was after the board debated a proposed plan that would have made it pay for a study that would require monitoring of the birds through a portion of the mating season, which lasts from May 15 through Aug. 1, prime construction time. Ò This will not impact us and we will be able to get the construction done this season,Ó Douglas said. Ò The biggest concern is to get the shell up and get it in,Ó County Manager Dan Palmer said. Ò It will take the company three months to get the job done.Ó The board also approved the awarding of a bid to install an 80-foot Sabre Model self-supporting tower for Belfry Moun-

tain to Allstate Tower in the amount of $76,515, to come from the radio bond.

Full coverage

Douglas also reported that he attended a press conference April 26 to announce that the region would be receiving additional funding to completely reimburse owners of property lost due to Tropical Storm Irene. Ò We are now included in the Sandy package,Ó he said. Ò Our property buyout program will end up with the other 25-percent of pre-flood appraised value covered. We are also going to be awarded another $3 million for work to prevent future flooding.”

Audit: Sheriff’s Department needs more fiscal oversight keith@denpubs.com ELIZABETHTOWN Ñ The Essex County SheriffÕ s Department recently received several suggestions to help streamline financial processes from the New York State Comptroller’s Office. Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli released the results of a financial audit of the department last week, stating that there were several areas where separation of duties was required. Ò It is not good to have some of the things that they found in the audit, but there was nothing in the report that was major,Ó Essex County Manager Dan Palmer said. Ò There are some things that we need to do differently and we will.Ó The main issue reported by the comptroller was the need for more oversight with monies taken in by the department. Ò We found the civil clerk performed virtually all financial duties without sufficient oversight or other mitigating controls,Ó the report states. We also found that bail and civil office cash receipts were not properly accounted for, secured, and deposited in a timely manner ... We also found that bank reconciliations were not prepared properly or timely ... Lastly, the DepartmentÕ s computer system allowed for the ability to modify and delete financial transactions, creating the opportunity for the manipulation and concealment of transactions.Ó The report continued to say that an effective system requires the separation of duties, Ò so that no single individual controls most or all phases of a transaction and so that the work of one individual is verified by that of another in the course of their regular duties. Ò For example, the same person should not collect cash, record cash receipts, disburse checks, and prepare bank reconciliations,Ó the report continued. Ò When an optimal segregation of duties is not practical, it is important that Department officials implement

other mitigating controls, such as increased supervisory oversight and reviews.Ó Sheriff Richard Cutting said that he, along with Palmer and County Treasurer Michael Diskin, had already implemented changes to align the department with the comptroller. Ò We have to create some separation,Ó Cutting said. Ò We have been revising all of our procedures and have trained more people on how to balance the checkbook.Ó Palmer and Cutting said that they are also making sure that monies collected would be deposited into accounts daily. Ò When we took in money, we had a safe where it would be kept until we went to make a deposit,Ó Cutting said. Ò They want us to make deposits every single day. There was no missing money or bails that had not come in, we just need to be more timely with our deposits.Ó In the end, the ComptrollerÕ s Office made nine recommendations, including: the Sheriff and department officials should ensure that cash receipts are maintained and disbursements are made in accordance with the money-handling policy; officials should segregate cash receipts and disbursement duties; that duplicate, press-numbered receipts are issued in sequence for all bail payments that are received at the jail and all civil office payments that are received in person at the civil office; ensure that bail and civil office cash receipts

that are collected are physically safeguarded; the Sheriff should maintain control of his signature stamp; assign someone independent of the cash receipts and disbursement functions to perform accurate and timely monthly bank reconciliations; maintain a cash control register containing a list of deposits and disbursements and a running total of cash on deposit; attempt to identify the source of an unidentified balance in the civil office bank account; and ensure that the computerized financial system is updated to prevent the modification and deletion of financial transactions and to provide for adequate audit trail reports. In his written response to the Comptroller, Palmer said that they would work with their resources on the recommendations. Ò The numerous and varied situations whereby our personnel handle money along with the limited number of people in certain offices often create situations where unique protocols must be created to ensure both an complete audit trail and accurate handling of these funds,Ó he stated. “The review reflected the result that all monies handled: bail, fine, civil collections, service fees, inmate monies, and so on were all appropriately held and turned over to their rightful end status. Despite this, we do have some procedural issues that your audit uncovered and we have developed a plan to address these issues.Ó

A sinkhole was discovered during the early morning hours of April 29 at the Elizabethtown Sunoco Station. Owner Richard Rich said that he was called “in the middle of the night” by the State Police informing him of the hole, which was filled in later that day. Photo by Keith Lobdell

he NCSPCA is happy to announce that we have seen a wave of recent adoptions! Sweet Beagle Shiloh, tabby cats Stanley and Ollie, black beauty felines Simba and Cocoa, and long-term resident cat Allex have all gone to their forever homes. We are hoping the Spring Fever adoption continues and many more of our furry friends find forever homes within the next few weeks. Now is a great time to stop by the new shelter at 7700 Route 9N in Elizabethtown to meet our many adoptable animals. Our featured pet this week is Arwen, a good-natured Border Collie/Boston Terriermix with a big, beautiful smile. This gentle little lady had a rough start during her first two years of life, but has adjusted well to life at the shelter and has a terrific attitude. Arwen gets along well with other dogs outside the home, but would really like to be queen of her castle. She is house trained and has manners as well as personality and looks... if you are seeking an all-around great canine companion, Arwen is the dog for you.

Essex

T

he Town of Essex won an award at the recent Adirondack Park Local Government conference in Lake Placid. The Excellence in Design competition recognized the hamletÕ s new sewage treatment plant for its contribution to community livability and appeal, its good fit with the neighborhood and for the lessons and techniques it offers to other communities. Accepting the award on behalf of the town was Supervisor Sharon Boisen. Belden Noble Library director Tom Mangano announced the new summer hours, which are Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 2 to 4 p.m., Thursday from 1 to 6 p.m., Friday from noon to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Essex Community Church will host a fundraiser for the library on Sunday, May 5, at 7 p.m. Three different musical acts will perform, including the folk quartet the Wannabes, blues guitarist Russ Bailey and Vicaro and Sonnett, purveyors of fine oldies. The suggested donation is $10 and there will be light refreshments. On Monday, May 6, head on over to the Whallonsburg Grange to learn how to make tortillas with James Graves of Full and By

Willsboro

Rob Ivy • robhivy@gmail.com

Farm. Tortillas are unleavened flat breads made with finely ground corn or wheat flour and are the essential components of tacos, burritos, enchiladas and all manner of tortilla chips. Originally created by the Aztecs and other native Mexicans around 3000 BC, tortillas (small torta, or small cakes) are low in calories and high in versatility, and James will show you how to make them in your own kitchen with tools you already have on hand. The class starts at 6 p.m.; call 963-4170 to reserve a spot. Farmers are busy plowing and planting, taking advantage of a nice stretch of good weather. At Juniper Hill Farm IÕ ve been tilling in composted chicken manure, planting lettuce and beets and making long raised beds with a machine that forms the bed and lays black plastic mulch all in one pass. ItÕ s important to get your rows straight to make later cultivation easier, but my rows are a bit wobbly, since a tiny jog in one row will grow to become a larger jog in the next row, and jogs are nearly impossible to straighten out. Since IÕ ll also do the between-row cultivating, I get to live with my errors all summer.

reat weather to start getting outside to do yard work or just walking, have seen several bikers going by, the sounds of nature are great. I attended another meeting this past week on what is going on about the dam project. These things take time and they call for certain requirments before anything can even get to a final answer. The project has been put out for proposal to come up with answers to what would be the outcome if we keep the dam in place or take it out. Then when the the firm they pick is chosen, then they come back with the details of what the answers would be for the public to pick the next direction. So stay tuned and be sure to come to those public presentations to render your choice. This is the season for many of us to do clean up around our homes, if you should come up with any items containing scrap metal, the Reber United Methodist Church is collecting all such items and they use the proceeds to assist them with their purchase of heating fuel for their church. If interested call Doug West at 963-7235. Along with the spring flowers popping up, each week we see more an more of our favorite winter snow birds returning and taking up residence, glad you are back. Congratulations to the Champlain Valley

Film Society for still serving the area communities with great films, hard to believe it has been 10 years since a small group on interested person got together and floated this idea, and look how it has grown. A reminder and hopeful that you remembered to write a note of appreciation to Catherine Sullivan of times spent with her, she taught here for 44 years and been in this community for more than that. Her address is 3749 Main Street, Willsboro, N.Y. 12996. She now spends much time in her home and does not get out very little - loves mail. Reading to children is still highlighted in our local Kindergarten classes, once again they invite parents, and other family members to bring the children in their class to come in night cloths at 6 p.m. and listen to a guest story teller come and share a few stories before bed time. I was honored to be asked to to be the guest reader this past week.

Farm-fresh to be distributed in Warren Co. through CSA program thom@denpubs.com WARRENSBURG Ñ Fresh, naturally-grown vegetables, meat, eggs and yogurt Ñ all produced locally in the Adirondacks Ñ will be available this summer in Warrensburg as well as North Creek and Glens Falls due to a new Farm Share program. Warrensburg Beautification has partnered with Juniper Hill Farm of Wadhams in Essex County to bring the highest quality produce to Warren County Ñ non-GMO and pesticide free, Farm Share Coordinator Teresa Whalen said this week. Ò Invest in your local economy, help small organic growers, and have convenient access to affordable, nutrient rich foods for your family and friends,Ó she said. Whalen is a founder of Warrensburg Beautification. Distribution points in Warren County include Monday-afternoon deliveries to Warrensburg Senior Center on Main St., to the North Creek Farmers Market at the train depot on Thursday afternoons, and to the Open Door Kitchen at 47 Lawrence

St. in Glens Falls on Tuesdays. In Essex County, distribution points include the weekly Farmers Market in Schroon Lake on Monday mornings in the town hall parking lot. The Farm Share program is a flexible edition of Community Supported Agriculture. Last year Juniper Hill Ñ in conjunction with Warrensburgh Beautification and other organizations Ñ established a series of workplace outlets in a wide region spanning from Saranac Lake to Saratoga Springs. This year, they are expanding the program new distribution points to accommodate the public. The shares, or bags of produce Ñ fully customizable Ñ will be distributed weekly during the summer. Besides produce, the program is offering farm fresh eggs, yogurt, cheeses, meats, poultry and field-grown flowers. Flexible payment plans are available, and clients may pre-order online from the weekly offerings, or let the farm choose from their plentiful selection. All fruits and vegetables are picked within 24 hours prior to delivery. Payment early in the season Ñ prior to harvestÑ helps farmers when they need it most, so savings are passed on to consumers, Whalen said.

Alcohol proposal headed to full essex County board By Keith Lobdell

keith@denpubs.com ELIZABETHTOWN Ñ The proposal for Essex County to go dry an hour earlier passed through the Ways and Means Committee April 29. The resolution in support of changing the hours in which an establishment can sell alcohol from 4 a.m. to 3 a.m. passed through the committee, 13-2, making its way to a weighted full board vote May 6. Newcomb Supervisor George Canon and Schroon Supervisor Michael Marnell were the dissenting votes, while Ed Hatch (Willsboro), Deb Malaney (Ticonderoga) and Randy Preston (Wilmington) were not in attendance.

Ò My local establishment is not in favor of this so I am not going to support it,Ó Canon said. Ò Warren County has not made up its mind and with Schroon being so close to Warren County, I think that we should be of the same mind,Ó Marnell said. Chesterfield Supervisor Gerald Morrow said that the other surrounding counties all had different hours to end alcohol sales. Ò I do not think that we need to wait for Warren County to do anything because they may not do anything,Ó Morrow said. Ò Franklin County is 3 a.m. Clinton County is 2 a.m. I would like to see this continue at 3 a.m.Ó Jay Supervisor and board Chairman Randy Doug-

las said he supported the change, but wanted to look into special exemptions. Ò My two local establishments have no problem with a one hour change,Ó Douglas said. Ò I would like to see something done about a special event. We have our softball tournament and other events but right now I think you can only get an exemption for New Year Õ s.Ó Ò I do agree that special events would be a good exception,Ó Elizabethtown Supervisor Margaret Bartley said. Mac MacDevitt of the Prevention Team said that after the resolution is passed, it would still be reviewed by the New York State Alcohol Review Board, who would then hold a public hearing locally.

Not the time for petty politics Common sense, political convenience

I

f you want the type of finger-pointing and sabre-rattling that often comes with state and federal government, then look no further than the small Essex County town of Elizabethtown. Over the past year-and-a-half, a constant battle between the current administration and members of the ousted old guard have exchanged a firestorm of accusations and inuendo at board meetings, through letters to the editor and other avenues. In the most recent exchange, former town board member Ken Fenimore requested, through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIL), the endof-year financial records of the town from current supervisor Margaret Bartley. Bartley and the town complied with the request and sent Fenimore the documents. One critical mistake was made, however. The financial information was handed over with account numbers to the townÕ s reserves listed for all to see. The bank statements were then posted at the Elizabethtown Post Office along with remarks criticizing the town board. Fenimore later admitted to posting the information. A post office employee removed the documents, only to find them re-posted the next day. This is the most recent example of a battle between the old regime and the new blood that has been taking place since the 2011 election, when Bartley edged Merrihew, 254-238, for the position of supervisor. Merrihew was gracious in defeat, but some supporters were not, including a handful of party faithful who went so far as to blame this newspaper for the loss. Since that time, banter has gone back and forth over several topics with each side having a cadrer of supporters. Topics have included the legality of town meetings under the Open Meetings Law; the handling of the Otis Bridge removal; a land deal between the county and Bartley along with her husband, Harry Gough; the management of the townÕ s sewer project; the budget process and the handling of the town’s finances. There should always be room to seek answers from political officials and bring “sunlight” to government proceedings. We, the people, have the right to know what our elected officials are doing with our tax dollars and how they are leading our towns, counties, states and country. Disagreement can occur, as people have differing opinions, leadership styles, backgrounds and trains of thought. When disputes arise, leaders should then come together and solve the problems with debate and compromise, one not being effective without the other. Look no further than the recently signed contract between the Essex County employees

union, CSEA, and the county, where both sides openly admitted that they did not get everything they wanted, but came to a compromise with the best interest of all involved. In this case, however, the battle lines that have been drawn have seldom been solely about only the issues. The tone of letters and statements from both camps has increasingly turned personal, sarcastic and even a little hateful toward one another. The monthly call-and-response that is playing out on local editorial pages has devolved into a Ò are too, are not,Ó name-calling, playground war of words. While some of the participants in this dance have maintained the high road, others exited that path and the time has come for this senseless squabble to end. What is playing out is the type of politics that we find unacceptable in Washington and in Albany, with people unwilling to lose themselves in the greater good and instead placing more emphasis on the letter that follows their last names. People engaged in government need to be less concerned with party politics and more concerned with the politics of the people. ThatÕ s when work gets done, when people work together and set aside their personal agenda for the common good. That doesnÕ t happen under a Hatfield vs. McCoy clash for power. Local politics is for many of our youth their first experience with public service and presents them with their first impression on how to conduct ones self in public. ItÕ s important to learn how to express your views and how to cooperate with those of different views. Public servants must learn to work together for the good of the people they serve. Petty and vindictive battles like Elizabethtown is experiencing only serve to create further discord within the community rather than pride in the performance of the community uniting despite differences. At the same time, there is one thing we will never do and that is stifle the debate by refusing to publish letters from Mrs. Bartley or Mr. Fenimore, as some have suggested. Letters to the editor are one of the few places where people can have an open conversation on the issues of the day and not hide behind a screenname or anonymous post. Whether you agree or disagree with the opinion, people who write letters are more likely to do one thing than those who hide behind anonymity Ñ think before pressing send. WeÕ d just like to see the time wasted on these personal vendettas spent instead on the greater good of the people of Elizabethtown. Ñ

Letters to the editor

Thankful for support

Run a success

Keep the town clean

To the Valley News: The 2012-13 Plattsburgh Youth Hockey 16U Boys Midget team was formed with the simple purpose of giving local hockey players the opportunity to play some additional games around their respective high school schedules. The team was made up of players from PHS/Seton, Lake Placid, Beekmantown, Saranac/Peru, and Saranac Lake high schools, who came together and developed a respectful and determined team spirit which resulted in a second place finish in the NYS Tier II Championships, earning them a trip to the USA Hockey 16U Tier II National Championships in Troy, Michigan, where they represented the North Country very well. The team could not have achieved their successes without the support of many local individuals, organizations, and businesses whose generous contributions made the season and the trip to the National Championship possible. The players, coaches, and parents would like to extend a sincere Ò Thank YouÓ to the following: the PYH Board of Directors, Lake Placid Youth Hockey, Fountain Brothers American Legion Post 1619, Post 1619 Sons of the Legion, Post 1619 Auxiliary Unit, American Legion Riders, Plattsburgh Police Local 812, NYSCOPBA Adirondack, Cadyville Gulf DEP, GirouxÕ s Poultry Farm, Mold-Rite Plastics, Lake Placid Pub & Brewery, Plattsburgh Lodge of Elks #621, Rick Lamberton (Jreck Subs), Stephen Tahy (Tahy Real Estate), Rick Young (Young Lyon Floor Covering), Ameri-Can North Sports Center, ORDA, Reg & Barbara Clark, the Craig Ormsby family, Billy Joe & Pearl Leopard, Jenn Lord, Irene & Mike Rock, Billy Jette, Carl McClusker, Tom Carlsen, Norma Goff, and George Caswell & Patty Plumadore.

To the Valley News: The Moriah Teachers Association Scholarship Committee would like to express its sincere appreciation to all who worked to make our recent 5K run/walk a success. A special thanks goes out to the Essex County SheriffÕ s Department, the New York State Police and the Moriah Police Department for the great job directing traffic and keeping everyone safe, the MCS National Honor Society members for keeping time, volunteers who donated food for the event and of course all the runners and walkers who participated. Mike Stahl Port Henry

To the Valley News: I moved to Willsboro five years ago. I moved there because as I child I spent summers in Willsboro, and fell in love with the pristine beauty of The Adirondack Mountains, Lake Champlain and all of what the surrounding area had to offer someone like myself who is a lover of the mountains and the unspoiled beauty of nature which the Adirondack park is known for. Since moving here however I have noticed a growing, and very disturbing problem with my otherwise beautiful town. That problem is pollution, and the level of the problem is quite shocking and alarming. I live in a small community of homes on Willsboro point which is a peninsula surrounded on three sides by Lake Champlain, and Willsboro bay, respectfully. On my daily walks with my dog I have noticed an ever increasing level along the roads in the woods, and in the drainage trenches which flow into culverts and eventually directly into Lake Champlain. This pollution includes beer cans and bottles, household garbage, tires, food wrappers and containers, used, soiled diapers and even one spot where a local family has made a habit of dumping their kitty litter, complete with kitty turds, into the drainage trench on the side of the road on a regular basis. Again these drainage culverts flow direcly into lake Champlain. It’s almost at the point where IÕ m afraid to walk my dog because of a fear of what he may scoop up with his mouth if if IÕ m not paying close attention to everything he sniffs. Not to mention the damage thatÕ s being done to the eco system, such as the soil the ground water, and the wildlife. The disturbing part is that this pollution is not the work of out of towners, or seasonal visitors, but of the residents who live here. When I was very young I learned that polluting the environment was not O.K. We were taught both at home and in school the damage that pollution does not only to the ecosystem, but to our health, and the health of our loved ones, our pets, and our wild life. Unfortunately the type of pollution that IÕ m seeing seems to be the work of adults rather than young uninformed children, ie. alcoholic beverage containers, household trash, tires, diapers, cat litter etc. I have lived in Southern New York most of my life in an urban area, and also spent some time living in urban Tampa Florida. I have never seen, in any community that I have lived in this level of pollution. The fact that no one is addressing it is even more disturbing. I have notified the local government, the EPA and the DEC on several occasions, and to my knowlege nothing has been done to address the problem. The garbage and the cat litter continue to pile up. I recently had a friend visit me from Florida. I was eager to show off the unspoiled beauty of my beloved Adirondack Park and Lake Champlain, but was quickly mortified when taking her for a walk down to the Lake shore the first thing she remarked on was how Ò disgustingÓ all the garbage on the side of the road was, and she couldnÕ t believe that people would discard their trash in such a way and also that it is left there to rot into the ground, and flow into the lake. Needless to say I was mortified. IÕ m sure that as a community there must be something that can be done about this. Perhaps a community clean up day where volunteers could organize and help clean our community, along with efforts to inform the public with some type of educational campaign to help people understand that when they pollute the envireonment they are not only making their community look ugly, but they are endangering the health and welfare of themselves and their loved ones. Perhaps even posting signs that would discourage the pollution, or maybe putting out trash recepticles along some of the streets that are seriously affected to save people the trouble of having to carry their trash home and dispose of it properly, and also to make it easier for pedestrians and passers by to pick up trash and dispose of it as they pass by and notice it. This is supposed to be a protected area. A designated state park where nature is meant to be protected, preserved, and enjoyed by residents and visitors. Unfortunately, the streets and roads surrounding the area where I live are some of the filthiest I have ever seen. I would like to see an effort made by my local government, members of my community, and any local agency or stewardship group to address and take steps to correct this growing and disturbing problem. William Rock Willsboro

Respect the flag during parades To the Valley News: The great American tradition of parades is almost upon us again. There is another great American tradition, that of respect for that which deserves it. Who can deny the stirring of the breast on hearing the marching band or seeing the flying of the American Flag of the Color Guard smartly marching down the street leading the parade. What is disheartening though, is not to see respect for the flag that our veterans have fought and died for. Twenty years ago, it would be unheard of to see the flag passing and not rise to your feet and remove your hat in salute to this symbol of liberty. Today, sitting and wearlng of headgear is all too commonplace on the parade routes. Please, go, enjoy the parade, but for all veterans both alive and deceased, and all that they fought and died for, remove your hat, stand quietly with your hand over your heart and show how much we appreciate our freedom and the symbol of that freedom in our flag - Old Glory. Long may she wave and long may we respect her and fight for her freedom. Richard Cutting Essex County Sheriff Elizabethtown

Enough is enough To the Valley News: I think I can speak for at least half of the town of Elizabethtown when I say enough is enough. We have the facts. We are free to make up our own minds. Most of us are capable of attending meetings and speaking up if we have questions. I know before this town, which I grew up in, is completely the laughing stock of New York State or ruined by hate and division, please stop. We all know how to tear down, now lets work together to build up. Find a hobby, pick a project, pick up trash, do something for the elderly, the youth, the SPCA, go to church and follow GodÕ s commandments. No more negative letters of condemnation, we all live here, if it was so bad, weÕ d move. Make people feel welcome. If there were no sides in politics think what a better earth this would be. I love Elizabethtown, have always tried to serve, been burned a few times, but I donÕ t choose to destroy. Enjoy what we have here. Choose to grow. Gay Olcott Elizabethtown

Interpretation of amendment To the Valley News: Ò A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.Ó - Second Amendment, U.S. Constitution In his letter to the editor on April 6 Don Mauer maintains that Ò the overarching purposeÓ of the Second Amendment was to guarantee that Ò the people would have the right to secure their freedom from a tyrannical government.Ó He goes on to argue that because weapons technology was the same on both sides of the revolutionary war-the colonists who formed militias and the British soldiers both had single shot, muzzle loading weapons--that today there must be parity between what weapons citizens can physically Ò keep and bearÓ and what the armed forces of a tyrannical government can physically Ò keep and bear.Ó This parity argument implies that citizens have the right to bear shoulder-launched cruise missiles capable of downing airplanes, hand-held grenade launchers, the xm25, machine guns, mines, flamethrowers, etc. Using words close to, but significantly different from those in the Second Amendment, Mr. Mauer does imbed citizensÕ gun rights within a Ò well trainedÓ militia. (The 2nd Amendment, however, refers to a Ò well regulated militia,Ó which, to the courts, means government regulated) Mr. Mauer does not, however, refer to state militias (today known as the National Guard) because they would presumably be the armed forces of a allegedly tyrannical government. Rather, his letter suggests he has in mind well-trained private militias which would fight the National Guard. If my interpretation of Mr. MauerÕ s letter is correct, I respectfully disagree. Of course individuals and organizations certainly have a First Amendment right to express their opinions about the meaning of the Constitution. But it is the judiciary, and above all, the U.S. Supreme Court that has the legal authority to interpret the meaning of the Ò maddeningly ambiguousÓ Second Amendment. The Supreme Court has in fact rendered a decision that contradicts Mr. MauerÕ s claims. In 2008, in D.C. v. Heller, the Court interpreted the Ò keep and bear armsÓ verbs of the Second Amendment. The central question in the case was whether individual citizens have a right Ò to bear arms in defense of themselves and the stateÓ independent of service in a state militia. Yes, the Court concluded, there is. But this individual right is subject to limitations. Justice ScaliaÕ s Heller opinion did indicate in dicta (not part of the legal ruling in the case) some of the limitations in clear contradiction of Mr. MauerÕ s argument in favor of weapons-parity between Ò the peopleÓ and the armed forces. The CourtÕ s reasoning ran as follows: At the time the Second Amendment was adopted the weapons it protected were in common use for both home and the militia. As Mr. Mauer correctly states, they were the same--single shot, muzzle loading weapons. That was then but not now. Weapons not protected by the Second Amendment, Justice Scalia wrote, were those not in common use at the time. In todaysÕ world, Justice Scalia stated, sophisticated weapons required for an effective militia are Ò highly unusual in society at large.Ó Because sophisticated military weapons are highly unusual--not in common private use--there is no Second Amendment right to keep and bear them. Underscoring this point, Justice Scalia point to the National Firearms ActÕ s restrictions on machine guns. In sum, the CourtÕ s take on modern military technology undermines, rather than supports, Mr. MauerÕ s parity argument. What about the peopleÕ s right of armed resistance or revolution against what some see as tyrannical government? The Heller decision provides little support for this supposed overarching guarantee of Second Amendment. Justice Scalia cites with approval an 1886 decision of the Court holding that states may control and regulate Ò military bodiesÓ (paramilitary organizations) except those authorized by the militia laws of the U.S. And we should not forget part of Art. I, Section 8 of the Constitution which confers on Congress authority to call forth the Militia Ò to suppress insurrections.Ó Monique Weston Keene

Guest viewpoint

Walk to help find a cure for ALS The ALS Raising Hope Foundation is excited to share that we will be hosting the Walk of Hope and Spring Festival on Saturday, May 25, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Trinity Park, Plattsburgh, with registration at 8 a.m., to support research for cures for neurodegenerative diseases, (ALS, AlzheimerÕ s, HuntingtonÕ s, ParkinsonÕ s, and more). Dr. Merit Cudkowicz, Chief of Neurology at MGH, is joining us and kindly will be available for questions. She believes that collaboration across disciplines and fields holds answers and says that “we have the talent and ability to innovate in ways that can redefine our field. So let’s aim for the stars.” Our support can fuel research to save our loved ones. We welcome you to join us in this quest to fund cures. The Dalai Lama is credited with saying, Ò If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito.Ó I think he would genuinely love to see all that is accomplished in the North Country by generous, ordinary people who make a huge difference with their support of charitable causes. We have a great group of volunteers working to make this a wonderful day filled with activities and opportunities to contribute. (And if you would like to volunteer we will gladly accept your help.)

CFES to host building dedication

ESSEX Ñ College For Every Student (CFES) will unveil the brand new CFES Center at 2303 Main Street in Essex on Friday, May 10, during a dedication ceremony from 5 to 8 p.m. Former New York Gov. George Pataki, Congressman Bill Owens, Senator Betty Little, Assemblyman Dan Stec, and other dignitaries are expected to kick off the event. CFES President and CEO Rick Dalton will say a few words and introduce former CFES Scholars from cities like Harlem and rural communities like Willsboro. College For Every Student moved from Cornwall, Vt., to Essex 12 months ago. In August, CFES acquired the post office building on Main Street. The newly renovated building houses staff offices on the second floor and a ground-floor rental space next to the post office. The former Essex Theatre, which operated on site until the 1960s, was razed to make room for the CFES Center, where CFES staff will conduct trainings and workshops for educators and students and their families from CFES school communities. The activities and operations of the CFES headquarters will contribute substantially to the economic development of the region, creating 15 jobs and bringing hundreds of thousands of dollars in business to attendant service providers.

Elizabethtown-Lewis board keeps budget under tax cap By Keith Lobdell

keith@denpubs.com ELIZABETHTOWN Ñ The ElizabethtownLewis Central School Board of Education will present a budget to district voters that comes in below the state tax levy cap. Board members voted April 24 to adopt a 2013-14 spending plan that would call for $3,473,640 in revenue to come from district taxpayers, an increase of 3.99 percent ($133,280) from the $3,340,360 tax levy required for the 2012-13 budget. The district tax levy cap as calculated based off a 2 percent increase base with several factors taken into account was set at 4.28 percent.

Ò We want to continue to respond to the stateÕ s level of funding, not to react to it,Ó Superintendent Scott Osborne said. Ò We are always planning into the future with the budget. This year, the Legislature came through very well when they enacted the state aid, but we still fall into the same situation with about 95 percent of the public school districts that have less state aid funding then we did five or six years ago.” The plan calls for $7,683,421 in spending, and increase of $262,226 (3.53 percent) from the 2012-13 total of $7,421,195. Osborne said that the key areas of increase were health insurance (up $193,768), teacherÕ s retirement (up $78,394) and BOCES services (up $42,943). He added that he and the board looked at the

programs and services in the school and were able to find $287,350 in cost reductions as part of the adopted plan. Ò We did look at all of our BOCES programs and there were some positions that we felt that we could accomplish in-house, which will help us save,Ó Osborne said. Ò We also saw a savings in the re-alignment of our administration and with attrition, which will continue to be a common business practice for us and a lot of schools.Ó Osborne said that cuts were made with the intention to keep programs in place, although some may have to be scaled down. Ò Programs are not being eliminated, because often when something is eliminated, it never comes back,Ó Osborne said. Ò The board saw

areas where they could reduce some programs but not have to eliminate them completely.Ó As part of the budget, $500,000 of fund balance will be used to help lessen the tax base, down from the $550,000 used last year. “I would attribute that to the fiscal situation that is hitting almost every public school in the state, especially up here in the North Country districts,Ó Osborne said. Along with the budget, voters will also be asked to consider the purchase of a 30-passenger bus by the district. The public hearing on the adopted 2013-14 budget will take place Tuesday, May 14, at 7:30 p.m. in the school conference room. The budget vote will take place Tuesday, May 21, from noon until 8 p.m. at the school.

Westport school board, teachers make agreement that balances budget katherine@denpubs.com WESTPORT Ñ The Westport Central School board approved a $5,505,000 2013-14 budget to put before voters at a regular meeting on April 25. With the joined cooperation of the teachers association and the school board, an agreement was made that will keep the budget from exceeding the tax cap while keeping staff and curriculum. Ò We knew at the beginning that we were looking at well

15 percent increase in the tax levy and we knew that was unacceptable,Ó said Superintendent of Westport Central School Dr. John Gallagher. Ò We were looking at the possibility of having to reduce the staff across the board, half positions, quarter positions, and reductions in sports in order to get the budget to reach a level it had to be by the law. Ò Gallagher thanked the teachers association working with the board to secure jobs of all current employees. Ò As a result of that the teachers have made significant

Westport clean-up events to be led by school, town and chamber venture WESTPORT Ñ Building on an initiative by the Westport Central School, and partnering with the Town, the Westport Chamber of Commerce plans to launch an on-going clean-up and beautification campaign. On the morning of Thursday, May 23, students, faculty and staff at Westport will work in teams to do a Spring Clean Up around the community as they Ò Adopt our Town.Ó Principal Michele Friedman recently introduced the project at a school board meeting. When Chamber president Dee Carroll asked how the chamber members may help, business teacher Adam Facteau suggested by lending rakes and providing work gloves, water bottles, trash bags and bathroom facilities. The school is still in the development stages of the project. Last year, students and staff in grades K-12 cleaned Ballard Park and its beach. The intent is to expand last year Õ s project and hopefully make it an annual event. While the school was developing its plans, the Chamber, inspired by Wayne and Jayne Deswert, was developing theirs for an on-going beautification effort. A proposed beautification blueprint was developed in conjunction with Westport Supervisor Dan Connell. The Town Board approved Tuesday, June 11, as the day that the town crew would collect roadside hard-to-dispose-of items. The brush dump will be open both Saturday, May 25, and Saturday, June 8, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at no charge. On Tuesday, May 21, Westporters are invited to a meeting to review the blueprint, form task teams, and outline what, where, who, how, and when to begin baby steps that will lead to a more attractive community. The gathering will be held at from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the town hall. This group will build on the help-helper exchange begun by the school. Ò By making our Town more attractive for ourselves we will build a sense of pride, thus making Westport a more inviting place for new residents and potentially for new businesses,Ó Carroll said. Ò WeÕ ll be all set to celebrate WestportÕ s bi-centennial in 2015.Ó

ELIZABETHTOWN Ñ The Elizabethtown Town Board has set the following dates for opening the Brush Dump for spring yard cleanup. The Brush Dump is for the use of Elizabethtown residents only, It will be opened on a limited basis (8 a.m. to 4 p.m.) on the following Saturdays: May 4, May 11, May 18, and May 25. All other dates the Brush Dump is closed.

$14,000 and the board also allocated the use of $144,000 in fund balances. Ò We ended up using $144,000 in fund balance, it canÕ t ever happen again. IÕ m not saying we canÕ t but we have a very low fund balance going out of this year,Ó said Gallagher. The district is already using a percentage of the fund balance for capital improvements on the facility. The budget is a 1.79 increase in the overall budget and a 3.85 increase in tax levy. The tax levy stays below the tax levy at $3,374,857.

The only materials that are allowed are: leaves, grass clipping, small branches no larger than three inches diameter, pine needles and wood chips. Not allowed are: stumps, tree limbs larger than three inches in diameter, construction debris, trash, painted or treated wood of any kind. The Town Board will monitor the use of the brush dump and set additional dates in the future.

The savings to the district also means the curriculum can stay as it is today keeping Advanced Placement courses and athletics. The school board will hold the public hearing on the adopted budget Tuesday, May 7 at 5:30 p.m. The annual school budget vote will be Tuesday, May 21. Ò WeÕ re a family here and what does a family do but take care of our kids,Ó said Gallagher.

also agreed to eliminate an incentive that is paid to teachers with a MasterÕ s Degree. Gallagher said the incentive was included at a time when a MasterÕ s Degree was not mandatory to teach in public schools. Ò The process with the teachers was extremely cooperative and definitely two-sided,” said Gallagher. Gallagher said other things happened to help WCS reach a goal the board was happy with. For one, the district received an increase in state aide of $62,000 where it was first projected to be closer to

Ò The reduction in health insurance premiums are much greater savings as a result of what theyÕ ve agree to and over the years will result is much higher savings than $40,000.Ó Gallagher said the board and the teachers association have been in discussions for weeks to find a way to keep jobs across the board.

CFES exchange

Continued from page 1 Ò Our classes are way bigger our gymnasium is bigger Ñ it is definitely different from the city,Ó Wadleigh senior Isaiah Rowe said. Ò I have one class that is just one section of the class that has 32 students in it.Ó Rowe said that he wanted to see something that was different from the high school experience that he had so far. Ò I especially wanted to get an experience that was outside of the city,Ó he said. Ò It is fun to see them on the farm, because it can be a big shock,Ó Willsboro student Tyler Bridge said. Ò They are a different group of people that have come into the school, but after we get to know each other it becomes fun and lively, just like we had been classmates for a while.Ó Bridge said that he was looking forward to the visit to Harlem and getting the chance to see a larger school. Ò They will see a big difference in any class they go to,Ó Rowe said. Ò I think that they will also get a fun experience when they have to travel on the subway to and from school.Ó Delores Roberts, CFES Liaison at Wadleigh Secondary School, said the experience is important for the students. Ò It is a matter of coming from the environment that you live in and to be exposed to things that they would not ordinarily get,Ó Roberts said. Ò There is a lot from this that they can use in their personal databases, and adding to your database allows you to fit into

The students also had the chance to see how the students traveled through the city and spent their free time away from school. different places and circumstances.Ó Roberts also said that the kids come together quickly as peers. Ò It can be a little intimidating at first but after a couple of hours, they all feel so comfortable around each other,Ó she said. Ò They are all children who are interested in furthering their education and having new experiences.Ó

The Exchange

The following week, for students from Willsboro, including Bridge, traveled to New York City to be with students there. While the students did not get to go to classes with their peers, they were able to see how the students got around, where they lived and attend a leadership conference and the famed Apollo Theater. Ò It took me out of my comfort zone,Ó sophomore Kanesa Kohen said. Ò I like the city and actually getting a chance to see how they live every day. I

knew that it was a big city, but there were some parts that did not seem that big.Ó Ò It was a lot of fun to see what it is like to live in the city,Ó sophomore Kelsey Sloper said. Ò You can walk everywhere because everything is right next to them. There is no trip to Plattsburgh. You take the subway to school.Ó Senior Tiffani Tromblee said that there were several differences that her peers told her about between the two schools, including one that she had not thought about. Ò They said that our school lunches were a lot better here,Ó she said. Ò You always hear kids talk about school food, and that was kind of eyeopening.Ó Ò Experiencing their life is a lot different,Ó Bridge said. Ò I had been there with my parents before but seeing it for myself and having the independence of seeing the city with other teens was nice.Ó Bridge said that he first thought the experience would be a little intimidating, but

was soon able to settle in with his fellow students from the city. Ò It was fun to interact with the students because you think that there are going to be all these differences but we are all still teenagers and do a lot of the same things no matter where we live,Ó Bridge said. Ò Every year, it is just fun to watch and see how the students are so quiet at first and it just takes a matter of minutes for them to start bonding,Ó Willsboro CFES Advisor Marie Blatchley said. Ò ItÕ s fun for me because I already know what the results are going to be from having seen it happen. Every year there is someone like Tyler that says they find out that they are all just teenagers and going through the same things. ItÕ s great to see the process of the stereotypes being broken down on both sides.Ó

Willsboro Outdoor World opens Saturday WILLSBORO Ñ Willsboro Outdoor World has announced that its Grand Opening will be on May 4. Willsboro Outdoor World is located on the corner of Route 22 & Bay Lane in Willsboro. The location was once Champlain Angler Sports, owned and operated by Jim and Tina Hotaling for many years. The Grand Opening will be from 6 a.m. until 8 p.m., with special events from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. There will be raffles, prizes, food, and fun throughout the afternoon.

THANK YOU!! The Community Food Shelf located at the Church of the Good Shepherd Parish Hall would like to express sincere thanks to the ELIZABETHTOWN LEWIS KIWANIS CLUB and THE DEER’S HEAD INN

According to owner Kristen Hotaling, the recent upward spiral of fisherman attracted to Lake Champlain and its tributaries for Lake Trout and Landlocked Atlantic Salmon demands a premier destination point for fishing and outdoor supplies. Hotaling has fished Lake Champlain all of her life and is a second generation entrepreneur as her father owned and operated Trolling Tina Charters on Lake Champlain for more than 20 years. “I know the area and I know fishing, so this is my passion and I plan to run this business for the fishermen and outdoorsmen who have my same passion,Ó she said. Hotaling, who has a business degree from Plattsburgh State, knows the opportunity for this business existed as she has watched and observed the return of fishermen to Lake Champlain after the decrease in fish size and look due to the lamprey epidemic. With lamprey control programs set up both in New York and Vermont, the fish size has increased and the lamprey marks have diminished bringing back the fisherman that once fished for the catch of a lifetime. Ò This is a great opportunity for me and a great resource for the amateur and experienced outdoorsmen to have their needs met locally,Ó she said. For more information, call 637-2641 or email willsborooutdoorworld@gmail.com.

Back after three years, Keene scores win against former ‘Beagle-ball’ mates By Keith Lobdell

keith@denpubs.com KEENE Ñ In 2010 and 2011, Beagle-ball was the buzzword in Section VII/Class D baseball. The team, comprised of student athletes from Keene and Westport, earned a pair of trips to the sectional championship game before not joining together as a merged team in 2012. This year, players from Keene and Westport came together again Ñ not as teammates, but to renew Keene pitcher acquaintances as foes on the diaColton Venner mond. The April 25 game between the former allies was also the first win for the Beavers, who defeated the Eagles 11-7 for their first victory wearing the home orange-andblack since a drop in numbers made them merge teams with Westport three years ago. Ò I am sure that they knew a little about the history between these teams,Ó Keene head coach and Athletic Director Fred Hooper said. Ò I didnÕ t want to put that added pressure on them saying that we needed to go out and play hard against a team we used to be a part of, our goal is to just get better every day because we do not have any kids who have played on a varsity team.Ó Hooper said that the way the team was brought together this season is a testament to the overall philosophy of the school they attend. Ò We have a couple kids who came out to play just so we could have a team,Ó Hooper said. Ò This team really embodies the true spirit of Keene Central School. You have guys who are really excited and want to get out there and play and they all came together as a group and said they wanted to play and bring baseball back to Keene.Ó

Through the early part of the season, the team has been able to focus on improving its fundamental skills as well as a team concept of the sport. Ò The attitude is just great,Ó Hooper said. Ò They all make every practice and they work hard until the end each day. The first couple of games we took it on the chin, but they came back each time wanting to get better and to continue to battle.Ó Ò We have a lot of people who have not played before,Ó sophomore Colton Venner, who pitched a complete game in the win, said. Ò We worked a lot of the fundamentals in the pre-season and the first game was just about getting into the flow of baseball and varsity. It wasnÕ t about the score. Everyone is giving their best effort all the time.Ó Ò This year we are looking to learn, and everyoneÕ s attitude has been great,Ó junior Brandon Dumas said. Ò Winning a game was nice, as well.Ó While no members of the current Keene roster were members of the Beagles (Beavers and EAGLES), Westport seniors Gabe Schrauf and John Doyle along with junior Tyrell Tryon were. So were current Eagles coaches Don and Chris Markwica, a father-son duo who were the cocoaches representing Westport and Keene, respectively. Ò I was not a member of the Beagles, but I remember watching them play together and working with coach (Chris) Markwica,Ó Venner said. Ò He helped me out a lot with pitching. It felt nice to see him again and to play as well as we did against them.Ó The April 25 game was the only scheduled meeting between the two squads this season, as they are in different divisions of the Mountain and Valley Athletic Conference.

I Love NY launches Adk. Challenge webpage By Andy Flynn

andy@denpubs.com ELIZABETHTOWN Ñ Empire State Development officials this past week launched a webpage for Gov. Andrew CuomoÕ s Adirondack Challenge whitewater rafting event on the I Love NY website. The launch was made on the same day Ñ Monday, April 29 — the governor officially announced that the Adirondack Challenge would be held on July 21 in the town of Indian Lake, Hamilton County. The News Enterprise was the first to report on the date and place on its website April 24 after acquiring a tentative agenda for the event. The governor made his remarks on Susan ArbetterÕ s radio show, Ò The Capitol Pressroom,Ó on WBFO. He didnÕ t reveal any specifics. The I Love NY website Ñ http://iloveny. com/Summer/Themes/ADK-Challenge.aspx Ñ calls the 2013 Adirondack Challenge Ò a celebration of New YorkÕ s beautiful Adirondacks region, culminating in a day of water races, food, music and more!Ó It outlines the following components: •Invitational whitewater race •Internationally competitive flatwater race •Race-day festival with music, food, demos,

displays, kids activities and more •Lead-up calendar of fun events across the region More details are promised Ò soon.Ó Cuomo proposed the Adirondack Challenge, a national whitewater competition, on Jan. 9 during his annual State of the State address. However, since the speech, no details have been made publicly available, even though members of the Adirondack Challenge Steering Committee have been meeting and making arrangements. The idea came from a multiple-day rafting trip he and some friends took on the Indian and Hudson rivers in September 2012 with guides at Beaver Brook Outfitters, based in Wevertown. According to the tentative agenda, the Adirondack Challenge would feature a whitewater race for the governor and other elected officials and invited guests. Then there will be an internationally competitive flatwater event and a festival with food and music. That would include an awards ceremony hosted by the governor. In 2013, the event would be branded the Adirondack Challenge Kickoff Festival. Partners would include the Adirondack Watershed Alliance and the Hudson River Professional Outfitters Association in conjunction with the Adirondack Challenge Steering Committee. Marketing and promotion would be

handled by I Love New York. The Adirondack Challenge is designed to highlight the Adirondack Park as a tourism region. In its first year, a July festival would “set the stageÓ for a 2014 event in the spring, when whitewater rafting conditions are typically optimal. The I Love NY website lists the Adirondack Challenge with other Travel Ideas around the state, including New York Beaches, NYS Museum Week, Family Fun, Path Through History and Wine, Beer & Spirits. The governorÕ s announcement came on the same day many Adirondack officials and tourism leaders were at the Adirondack Day festival in the Legislative Office Building in Albany. The event also featured a Taste of the Adirondacks segment with food and drinks from the Adirondack Park.
