Douglas takes the helm at county board

Etched into memory Local doctor’s carvings convey life of Holocaust victims By Matt Bosley

By Matt Bosley ELIZABETHTOWN — Jay Supervisor Randy Douglas became the first Democrat in 31 years to lead the Essex County Board of Supervisors when he was unanimously elected as board chair at the body’s 2010 organizational meeting Jan. 4. Douglas was one of several officials sworn in that day, including newly elected District Attorney Kristy Sprague, re-elected Sheriff Henry Hommes, and four newly elected town supervisors. “I’m proud to have the privilege of being only the second supervisor from the town of Jay to hold this position,” Douglas said. The Douglas family has a long history of holding elected office in Jay. Douglas’ father, Thomas A. Douglas, served as Jay supervisor from 1972-80 and from 19982000. His grandfather, Arthur J. Douglas, served as Jay supervisor from 1966-72. All were Democrats. Douglas said he looks forward to continuing their legacy. “I am proud of my roots. I’m proud to be a Democrat, but most of all, I’m proud to have been given the communication skills of my father to be able to reach across party lines,” he said. In his introductory address, Douglas outlined some difficult choices county officials will have to make in an economic recession that continues to take its toll on state and local government. “This next year will be difficult,” said Douglas, “and if we want to continue without cutting services or jobs, we’re all going to have to be a little more innovative.” Douglas mentioned utilizing a frozen meal program avaialable through the state to reduce costs at the county jail and nursing home. “Another idea to be investigated is the possibility of the county going green,” said Douglas, noting a desire to reduce duplicative paperwork between departments and explore the use of solar energy panels.

ELIZABETHTOWN — Stepping into the examination room at the office of Dr. Herbert Savel, one will immediately notice the unique artwork that adorns the walls. Seemingly framed images depict a strange blend of placid family portraits and graphic acts of violence. At first glance, the images in vivid color appear to be two-dimensional, but a second look reveals their texture and raised relief. The paintings are, in fact, carved from a solid block of wood. Closer inspection also reveals other clues. Jewish symbols and images of concentration camps reminiscent of Schindler’s List indicate that these images originate from the days of Nazi Germany. What may be most surprising is that all these images covering the walls from ceiling to floor are the work of Savel himself, who still finds time to carve them when he’s not practicing as a physician. While most of Savel’s carvings are hanging at his office, several are on display elsewhere. The Florida Holocaust Museum in St. Petersburg, Fla. has a permanent exhibit devoted to his work. Now, with the assistance the museum, Savel has published a book highlighting his work and the people who have inspired it. Carving virtually every day since April 2002, Savel has amassed a collection of more than 1,070 sculptures, all of which have a similar message. “I would like to show that the

ECH striving to go green, healthier By Matt Bosley ELIZABETHTOWN — Elizabethtown Community Hospital is making a conscious effort to reduce its impact on the environment and improve the overall health of its patients in the process. The hospital has instituted a Healthy Environment Initiative, part of an ongoing series of decisions that have led to more healthy, cost-effective and envi-

ronmentally friendly operations there. “The hospital’s top priority is the health and safety of its patients, staff and community”, said ECH Administrator Rod Boula. “ECH has no intention of doing anything that harms the environment and, in fact, strives to minimize its impact.” One recent change at the hospital has been the use of a non-toxic cleaning solution that eliminates phenols and other harmful substances from wastewater.

ECH community relations manager Jane Hooper said the non-toxic cleaners are also free of noxious fumes that are both harmful and malodorous to patients. Now, she said, hospital staff are more comfortable with the product they use. “They’re very proud of the fact that they can say to patients that this is healthier,” Hooper said. Though the non-toxic cleaners cost

Gender barriers falling as four women join county board By Jon Alexander ELIZABETHTOWN — History was made Monday inside the Essex County municipal center, but few of the gathered political leaders were aware of it. Four women were sworn into office as Essex County supervisors — and the addition of these four supervisors from Essex, Crown Point, Ticonderoga and Minerva respectively, swell the total number of female supervisors in the county to seven, an all-time high. But progress toward gender equality is slow, even as historic gender barriers erode, advocates and academics say. Across the state, the number of women in local elected positions still lags far behind their male counterparts. The number of women holding local elected office is growing, but drawing even with men is not on the immediate horizon, said Dr. Dina Refki, CEO of the Center for Women in Government & Civil Society at Albany University. “We are seeing progress, but the it is slow and uneven, so we are still have not reached the 50 percent mark,” Refki said. “Specifically in New York, we haven’t yet reached the critical mass we are looking for.” She noted that at the state level, the number of women in the Senate and Assembly has slowly swelled over the last 40 years. In 1975, only nine of the 210 total seats in the two legislative bodies were occupied by women. In 2009, this number swelled to 52, or 24.5 percent of the total legislative seats. Two women, Republican Ida Sammis and Democrat Mary Lilly, first joined the state Assembly in 1919, a year after suffrage. But even with the recent increase, New York ranks 24th among the states in terms of female political involvement.

Refki noted that no data that compares the rates in trends regarding women in local governments in rural and urban settings is available. But according to Mark LaVigne of the New York State Association of Counties, women are still well behind their male counterparts when it comes to county leadership posts. Only five of the 58 county chairs and four of the 17 county executives seats statewide are currently held by women. In Essex County, the first two women were elected to the board in 1980. St. Armand Supervisor Joyce Morency joined them in 1982 and became the first female county chair in 1995. “When I first came on the board, the good old boys were here and it was a lot different than it is now,” Morency said. “It took a long while to get comfortable because there was a certain amount of control. That’s the way it was done years ago.” The newly elected Ticonderoga Supervisor Deb Malaney, Minerva Supervisor Sue Montgomery-Corey, Crown Point Supervisor Bethany Kosmider and town of Essex Supervisor Sharon Boison join Morency, Lori Lincoln-Spooner, and recent board chair Cathy Moses in the county legislative chambers. Shortly after taking her

oath, Malaney reflected on the larger social significance of her election and the forces driving a push to governmental equality. “It’s obviously a sign of the times, it’s a generational shift,” Malaney said. “Women have been in the workforce for sometime now and we are now coming forward to serve.” The seven women now compose 39 percent of the 18member board, a figure well ahead of most counties, both rural and urban. Several counties in the region have boards composed almost entirely of men. The boards in Warren and Franklin counties, for instance, are entirely male. In Clinton County, women hold only two of the 10 county legislative seats. Local state Assemblywoman Teresa Sayward is a former member of the Essex County Board of Supervisors and in 1998 became the second female board chair after Morency. She said that when she first joined the board, she was faced with stereotypes that only made proving her political abilities all the more difficult. “When I walked into the board of supervisors, some of the guys called me powder puff,” she said. “I have never used a powder puff in my life, but that’s what you were

greeted with. But not everyone was so skeptical of the political abilities of a woman. “I will say that there were men on the board at the time, like George Canon, who took me under their wing.” The region has seen the rise of not only Sayward, but also state Senator and former chair of the Warren County board Betty Little, Assemblywoman Janet Duprey and her peer Dede Scozzafava. Sayward said Tuesday she believes that hard-wired differences between the sexes can be a female politician’s strength, not a weakness. “We are really good at bringing people to consensus,” Sayward said. “If there is an uprising in the house, who’s the one that has to get involved and get everybody to compromise? I think women are really good at that.” Sayward said that with women facing the many choices regarding children and careers, getting into politics is all about timing. But these options shouldn’t discourage a woman’s involvement. For her part, she waited until her youngest child went to college. Longtime Franklin town Supervisor and the first woman to hold the office of town supervisor in Franklin County, Mary Ellen Keith, left office only last week.

emember the Keene Central School fundraiser we announced several weeks ago? The students, staff, and parents have announced that they have collected $500 to donate to our shelter. These fund will help keep our pets warm, safe, and with full bellies that they appreciate with wags and purrs! A big "thank you!" goes out to the school for their hard efforts. This week's featured pet is Shadow, a 4 year old Shepard mix. He was rescued from a home where he was neglected, without the love of a caring family. Initially, he was reluctant to socialize with the shelter staff, but his true colors of being an affectionate and loyal dog have begun to show. His favorite things are any kind of exercise, long walks, and just being around people. He doesn't mind a romp in the snow and has a love for playing outdoors! At this point, we don't know how he feels small children or cats. He seems to interact without difficulty with other dogs; however, if you already have a dog in your home, you will definitely want to see how the two of them get along. If you are looking for a handsome, energetic companion, Shadow is the perfect dog for you! Curious about the pets at our shelter who are currently awaiting adoption? Check out our website,, where you will find a link to our available pets. At this time, we have approximately

he following is an edited version of an email (it was signed, by the way) that I received the other day about my last column, which celebrated WCS's national recognition for excellence: Colin, regarding your piece in today's Valley News, I think that it's great that our school got the recognition of excellence but, with a $5 million budget to spread over some 250 students, it shouldn't surprise anybody. Also, how many students are kept back to achieve the 100% graduation rate?...I'm not against the school, I'm all in favor of quality education but the school board and administration seemingly have no fiscal conscience and simply spend too much money. They also don't seem to be aware that our school is on the chopping block if or when the time comes for school consolidations. Take care, and Happy New Year. I'm interested by the idea that $5 million is too much money to spend each year on a school that has 250 students. That's 20 grand a year per student. Comparable to a good private school, I would guess. Another guess would be that there are pros and cons to spending this kind of money. And I'd be very surprised if any students at all are kept back to achieve the 100 percent graduation rate. That's something I

have a hard time envisioning. Then there's the issue of school consolidation. My impression is that if we lose the school, it will be terrible for the town, and that the experience of other towns bears this out. But I don't really know enough to assess all these claims, which (along with others) were made during our recent school budget cycle. So here's what I say: I'd like to hear from readers who know more than me about the pros and cons of these issues. I'm ignorant, in other words. Educate me. Send me your comments, and I'll do my best to reflect them fairly here, even if I can't promise to quote them all. You've marveled at his floating rocks and free-sailing wind turbines on Sayre Road, and maybe caught the show of his work at the museum in E'town last summer. Now come see Ted Cornell talk about his art and how he makes it at the Wadhams Free Library. Titled "A Hole in the Head," it's a lecture that Ted will illustrate with his own paintings, providing a window into his internal art universe. (I suspect it's one of those universes with different laws of nature.) Not to be missed. Wednesday, Jan. 13, at 7:30 p.m.

or my readers in the far north reaches of Reber and the Southern climes of Brookfield, here is news of the Essex Town Board, which held its organization meeting Jan. 2. After we resolved the bottled water and coffee issue, which I unsuccessfully fought against (beings as I am a tea drinker) we moved on to making appointments. Simply put, “Laplume la change, la plume la meme chaise” or, in other words spelled more correctly, no major changes. And for those of you agonizing over change for the sake of change, whats so bad about that? Attention followers of sword swallowworts, Epee and foil lovers. The Whallonsburg Grange is sponsoring a benefit for Sarah Looby and Charlotte Staats who have qualified for the National Fencing Junior Olympics being held in Memphis, Tenn., in February. Charlotte, age 14, has qualified for the cadet rank (ages 13-17) and Sarah has qualified for the cadet and Junior (17-20) class. Both girls are members of the Champlain Valley Fencing Club. Coach Paul Rossi’s shirt buttons are popping (has nothing to do with overeating). The Benefit is on Jan. 16 from 6-8 p.m.

For cheapskates, the group is asking for $3 donations. The Concert will feature Blues and pop group Rutabaga and rock band Alkatraz. Both groups hail from Westport. If asked, fencers will spear thrown dollar bills in mid air as well as any flies still hovering. All funds will be used to meet the $1,500 of expenses. If you can’t go, how about sending donations to either Charlotte or Sarah c/o Westport Central School? If you want to make a heavy donation, I’ll drive over and sing some songs. Attention, Kevin Cooper! Director “par excellence” Pretty Good Jim is considering doing Ben Hurt for his play next year. He expects to start negotiations with Essex Fairground people to hold the chariot race, will use broken scythe blades on chariot wheels, and will replicate the age old battle between three mice and 28 elephants. More later! Have your heard the latest news from Iran? It seems that they have announced that they now can produce car bombs without Western explosives. Spokesperson ElShazam noted “they will only be used for peaceful purposes.” What comes next in this ever lasting battle of wits?


am writing from a winter wonderland of a new white snow covering the beautiful North Country. At this writing, we are experiencing a good winter storm. Some things had to be canceled this past weekend, and the road crews have been busy. The weather stayed good until after the New Years Eve celebrations, so assume everyone got home safely. Reports are that the Willsboro Bowling Alley was a very lively place on New Year ’s Eve, with many locals enjoying having a local place to go celebrate. The headlines for us here in Willsboro was when we learned that the North Country’s New Year ’s Baby was born to a local couple. A baby girl, named Kierstin, to Bridget & Shane Brown arrived on New Years Day. She is the granddaughter of Linda & Larry Brown and Holly & Brad French; a very proud family to welcome this little girl. Last week I told that there were some local winter graduates from Clinton Community College, but I did not know some of the names. Congratulations to Shelby Stoker, Matt Sayward, Joseph Murphy and Brittany Pope. Sorry to learn that Jack Williams, former music teacher at our local school, had a heart attack this past week,

we wish him a full recovery and our best wishes. Reports are that June Lincoln who is in a rehab unit down in Granville is making steady progress in her health condition. Those wishing to send her a card send care of Indian River Nursing Home, 17 Madison Ave., Granville, N.Y. 12832. The Winter entertainment is once again about to start as the Willsboro Congregational Church begins their series of Coffee House gatherings. The first one will be held Saturday, Jan. 16 starting at 7 p.m. in the church’s Fellowship Hall. Admission is $5 for adults and $2 for students. Entertainment is provided by the Too Tall String Band. There will also be refreshments available; a great way to spend a winter evening. The next movie to be shown by the Champlain Valley Film Society will be Saturday, Jan. 16 at 7:30 p.m. at the Willsboro Central Schoool. The movie is “Julie & Julia” staring Meryl Streep as Julia Child. The film will be introduced by Chef John Ferry.

ADIRONDACK Dogs really are man and woman’s best friend CRYPTOGRAM H umans and dogs have had a long shared history. Many anthropologists believe that man could never have evolved as they have without dogs. One theory suggests that Homo sapiens utilized dogs in their lives and the Neanderthals did not. Many anthropologists believe that the powerful Neanderthals lost the evolutionary race for this reason. If not for dogs, we might not even be here. There is considerable evidence that dogs enrich our lives in many ways, including our health. Dogs lower our blood pressure, heart rates and stress levels just by their presence. Children that grow up with a dog around have less allergies, less asthma and less eczema. Dogs are also a protective and consoling influence for children. Therapeutic dogs are utilized in Nursing homes, hospitals, day care settings and more recently in prisons. In the twenty seven years that my wife and I have been together we have had several wonderful dogs. Our first dog together was a large red Doberman, Buckwheat. Buckwheat was fun loving and despite our best efforts, un-trainable with the limited dog skills that we had at the time. Though she was very large, Buckwheat loved to get up on my wife’s lap or to fall asleep on her. Upon hearing something outside one day, she jumped through the glass window in the kitchen door somehow uninjured. Once, while riding in my truck, she jumped out the window at about twenty miles an hour, skinning her chin and playfully wobbling to her feet. In spite of her intellectual limitations she was loveable and a big bundle of fun. Luka, a golden eyed Chesapeake Bay retriever was our next dog. Even as a puppy, she was a protective presence in our home. As an older dog she became very protective of my wife. I began to notice that she would always put herself between a

visitor and my wife. She was always at my wife’s feet. When Luka was stricken with painful, malignant cancer in old age, my wife decided that because Luka had shown her such devotion, she would bring her to the vet to stop her pain. That was a sad and difficult day for my wife and our family; we had truly lost a member of our family. We still think of Luka and have Luka’s picture in a priviBy Scot Hurlburt leged position in our home. About five years ago, two Golden retrievers, Jazz and Rooney came into our lives. Rooney is a cinnamon-colored pretty-boy; always the poser with his forever puppy face. Jazz, lighter in color is the wise dog. Jazz has those sad, loving eyes that compel you to get down on one knee to hug her. If you ever have the good fortune to meet Jazz, she will welcome you and sit close to you so you can enjoy her loving energy. Dogs don’t hold grudges, are blind to color and don’t care how important you are. The world would certainly be a better place we all acted more like dogs. Depending on your perspective, Jazz does have one unsettling behavior; she is a butt-sniffer. Given some of the people that I’ve known over the years, if their worst offense was butt-sniffing, they would rise in stature by good measure Remember all kids count.

ere’s a question from a reader like you who’s learning how to use coupons to save money at the grocery store: Q: “I have to disagree with you about holding onto coupons until stores put the item on a good sale. Great idea, but as you might have noticed coupons today have a very short life span. You said grocery stores’ best sales on certain items rarely coincide with coupons available that week. I don’t believe you should hold on to coupons and wait for a better sale because the coupons will expire. Best to grab the deal when you can and use the coupon, otherwise it’s a waste of time cutting those coupons out.” A: This is one of the most common misconceptions about coupons: assuming that they expire too soon to make holding onto them worthwhile. The average coupon has an expiration date three months out. Some expire sooner, some expire later, but it’s wrong to assume that they all expire very quickly. I have coupon inserts that are more than eight months old that still have current, unexpired coupons in them – proof that it’s not only important to hold onto all of our inserts until every coupon inside expires, but also proof that not all coupons expire quickly. Using coupons the same week you get them is almost always a big mistake. Stores know exactly which products will be featured in the coupon inserts for the current week, and most stores will intentionally leave these items at a higher price. The reason? Stores know how most people use coupons. Most people will cut coupons out of this week’s paper and use them the same week. But these shoppers usually pay a much higher price on a given product, even with a coupon, than if they had waited for a better sale and then used the coupon. About six weeks ago, I received a $1 coupon with an expiration date three months out, good for a certain brand of soup. This soup was $3.29 the week the coupon arrived. If I used the coupon that week, I’d pay $2.29, still much more than I like to pay for a can of soup. But with three months’ time to watch for a better sale, I waited. And this week, the soup went on sale for $1 a can. My coupon is still more than a month away from ex-

piring, but by waiting a few weeks, I took the soup home for free! Had I used it the week I’d gotten it, I would still have paid more than two dollars for the soup. Free is much better. After one of my coupon classes, a man came up to me and told me that he had an By Jill Cataldo “aha!” coupon moment. He was an avid poker player, and he equated knowing when to “play” your coupon to knowing when to play a certain card in a hand of poker. I like this analogy a lot, because coupon shopping can definitely feel like a game at times... and it’s a game that’s fun to win! A $1 coupon is worth a lot more paired with a $1 sale price than it is with a $3.29 regular price. As for your point about using a coupon the week you cut it out so that it’s not a “waste of time,” I’d suggest that you not be so quick to clip. I never cut coupons that I’m not going to use immediately. I use a “clipless” system to manage my coupons (more on this at under “Getting Started.”) I’m not cutting a coupon out until the week I actually need it. If the coupon in my insert does not line up with a good sale before it expires, I haven’t wasted any time at all clipping it, looking it up or carrying it around. I use as little time and effort as possible to manage my coupons and you can, too! It’s much easier to take only the coupons you need to the store in the first place, secure in the knowledge that, like my card-playing student, you are “playing” your coupons at exactly the right time to maximize savings.

What to do to get rid of dangerous bacteria


s I had mentioned in my previous column, some plant pathogens can be introduced into a crop on seeds. Bacterial pathogens are notorious for this means of dissemination. Purchasing treated seeds is one way to avoid this problem. The other way is to use hot water to kill diseases. This treatment is suggested for seeds of eggplant, pepper, tomato, carrot, spinach, lettuce, celery, cabbage, turnip, radish, and other crucifers. Seeds of cucurbits (squash, gourds, pumpkins, watermelons, etc.) can be damaged by hot water and thus should not be treated. To treat the seeds, wrap seeds loosely in a woven cotton bag, such as cheesecloth, or a nylon bag. Then, place the seeds in 100 degree water for 10 minutes. Next, place the pre-warmed sees in a water bath that will hold the water at the recommended temperature for the recommended length of time. Length of treatment and the temperature of water must be exact. A good thermometer and timer are important. After treating the seeds, place the bag in cold tap water for 5 minutes to stop any heating action. Spread the seeds in a single, uniform layer on a screen to dry. Do not store the seeds until they are thoroughly dry so that they do not germinate or rot. Here’s the recommended water temperature and timing for several common vegetable: Brussels sprouts, eggplant, spinach cabbage, and tomato should be in 122 degree water for 25 minutes; broccoli, cauliflower, carrot, collard,


kale, rutabaga, and turnips go into 122 degree water for 20 minutes; mustards and radishes are at 122 degrees for 15 minutes; peppers should be at 125 degrees for 30 minutes; and lettuce, celery, and celeriac are 118 degrees for 30 minute. Keeping the water too hot or keeping the seeds in too long will kill the seeds. Low water temperatures or shorter than recommended time periods will not kill the pathogens. While this process is not “rocket science” you do have to be precise. If you are not one who enjoys following directions closely, you can avoid this process by purchasing treated seeds. But, if you do like to follow precise instructions, this process can allow you to purchase untreated, organic seeds and still ensure the seeds will not be transmitting pathogens into your garden!

SATURDAY January 9, 2010

Willsboro student joins Mission of Hope By Matt Bosley WILLSBORO — Tara Robare will soon take a week-long excursion away from the Adirondack winter to a place with a tropical climate. However, this trip will be about much more than soaking up the sun. A senior at Willsboro Central School, Robare will join the 35th embarkment of the North Country Mission of Hope, an ongoing mission to aid cities in Nicaragua. North Country Mission of Hope was founded locally in 1998 in response to severe conditions in Nicaragua resulting from a Category 5 hurricane. Through a wide range of development projects, the organization has been working to improve living conditions in one of the poorest nations in the world. But to get there, Robare has to do her own fundraising for the trip. Roughly $1,200 is needed to pay for her transportation and food. To raise the funds, Robare has made presentations to community groups in and around Willsboro, the latest of which was a Jan. 5 meeting with the United Methodist Women of Willsboro. There, she expressed

her enthusiasm for what she can help North Country Mission of Hope accomplish. Robare said she was inspired to volunteer overseas after Sister Deborah Blow, Executive Director for North Country Mission of Hope, visited her Spanish class with a presentation about the organization. Through images and accounts of Nicaraguan living conditions, Robare recognized a need to serve. “I knew things like that happened,” she said, “but I didn’t know the extent of it.” Also, the trip appealed to her strong desire to travel overseas, something she hopes to continue doing in college. “I chose to go because I want to see the world that I’m living in; the good, the bad, and the ugly,” said Robare. About half the funds needed for her trip have been pledged thus far, said Robare. If successful, she will join the ranks of more than 450 individuals, students and adults from the North Country and beyond, who have traveled to Nicaragua at least once with Mission of Hope. While many have originated in Essex County, Robare will be the first high school student from Willsboro. The plan, she said, is to leave Feb. 11 as one of about a dozen volunteers that include fellow high school students, college stu-

dents, and adults. The group will then return about a week later. “We’re going to help out at the school that the mission built,” she said. Also, she expects to be heavily involved in building home shelters for families and implementing other programs supported by contributors to the Plattsburgh-based organization. Six hundred and fifty dollars is the cost to build a home shelter, Robare said; a facility that is little more than a makeshift one-room shelter with no electricity or plumbing. Still, it is a gift that brings a Nicaraguan family great joy. “That’s another reason why I’m going is to see the smiles on their faces,” she said, “just to see their happiness and to help them get that happiness.” The mission helps in many other ways as well, such as planting moringa trees that aid in water purification, gathering donations of medical supplies to combat widespread health issues, and distributing Nicaraguan rice and beans to the area’s most impoverished families. “That way we’re helping them two-fold,” Robare said, “because we’re buying their food and giving it to their people.” Robare’s classmates have put together plans for a senior trip to San Diego in the coming weeks, but she saw little fulfillment in raising funds for a California fling. “I figured why do that when I could do

something that can help people,” she said. Robare is no stranger to community service, having been involved in several local projects through Girl Scouts and National Honor Society, as well as supporting youth programs at her church. She has also been helping package donations of food and clothing for North Country Mission of Hope in preparation for her trip. The trip will be Robare’s first overseas, but she has little reservations about it. She said her biggest fear is the possibility of being emotionally overwhelmed by the poverty of the people she’s helping. “I’m slowly learning more and more about the culture,” she said. “I’m still probably going to be shocked.” But she’s prepared for that, she said, and even more prepared for the experiences that come with making a positive impact. “I’m extremely excited to go,” said Robare. “Every day it’s getting closer and I’m getting more excited.” For more information about North Country Mission of Hope, visit People wishing to financially support the organization can send a check payable to North Country Mission of Hope, 206 New York Rd., Plattsburgh, NY 12901. Those specifically wishing to help fund Robare’s trip to Nicaragua should note her name on the check.

Tourism group changes name CROWN POINT — The Board of Directors for the Lake Placid/Essex County Visitors Bureau has formally changed the organization’s name to Regional Office Of Sustainable Tourism, or ROOST. The name change reflects the evolution of the organization by including its ongoing sustainable tourism initiatives, but there will be no change in the organization’s body of work. ROOST continues to offer sophisticated marketing programs to support the region’s tourism businesses and to promote Lake Placid and Essex County’s destinations. “As an accredited Destination Marketing Organization, ROOST remains the authority on tourism for Lake Placid and Essex County, and will continue to proactively promote the region’s destinations,” said Jennifer Webb, chairwoman, ROOST board of directors. Sustainable tourism, in its purest sense, is

an industry whose goal is to make a low impact on the environment and local culture, while helping to generate economic activity and employment without overtaxing any resources - whether human, environmental or man-made. The ultimate goal of sustainable tourism is to improve the quality of life for residents while facilitating destination planning and promoting the product to the traveling public. “Following our accreditation as the Destination Marketing Organization for all of Essex County, the new name is the next progression of our organization,” said James McKenna, ROOST president. “The name ‘visitors bureau’ speaks to visitors, but our objective is to effect positive quality of life for the residents of Essex County through tourism. ROOST better defines the core objectives of our programs for our local and regional organizational identity, and will clarify locally our primary role.”

roughly double that of their phenol-carrying alternatives, Hooper said the hospital has made up for the cost in other ways. The hospital received a $12,000 grant from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority last year, which allowed them to install energy-efficient mercury-free lighting and other energy-saving upgrades. Among those upgrades were a new heating system that is not only self-sufficient in case of a power outage, but will save the hospital roughly $26,000 in energy costs. Another cost-saving measure from the grant are motiondetecting light switches in many of the hospital’s offices that automatically shut off lights when nobody is occupying the space. “A hospital is unique in that it operates 24-7,” said Hooper, “so there are places throughout the building that don’t need constant lighting, such as offices or clinic rooms. Even the lab and radiology can use less lighting at night.” Included in the recent renovations and expansion of the hospital were energy-efficient double-pane windows throughout the building. The large windows in new patient rooms and lobby let in more sunlight, reducing the need for electricity and promoting emotional well-being. The building’s new roof is constructed of a black rubber product that absorbs energy from sunlight, helping to melt snow and ice during the winter months and inhibiting mold growth in the summer. To continue in that theme of going green, Hooper said the hospital will be making an ongoing effort to promote recycling and reduce its use of paper. Many documents are already being produced and stored electronically instead of with a hard copy. “Also, that way, we don’t have a paper copy taking up space,” Hooper said. “This hospital is located in one of the most beautiful and unspoiled areas of the nation”, said Matt Nolan, director of facilities at ECH. “Our administration believes that part of being a good neighbor means ensuring that the hospital is doing its part to help keep our local environment healthy.”

Douglas From page 1 Douglas said he also plans to institute a new Deficit Reduction committee at the county that will work closely with the existing committees to reduce debt and lobby against state mandates. In addition, a special task force will be formed to determine the future of the county-run Horace Nye Nursing Home. Douglas called the program’s current $4 million annual shortall unsustainable and said it may need to be reconfigured or privatized to reduce its draining effect. Other priorities he mentioned were hiring someone to fill the recently vacated position of Public Health Director, as well as find ways to share the cost of a $10 million emergency services radio project that’s currently under way. “Essex County residents can be assured that deficit reduction is on the horizon,” Douglas said. “The state of the county is good, but we can strive to make it better.”


Westport school to add garden By Matt Bosley WESTPORT — Students at Westport Central School will soon be given a great opportunity to experience first-hand the challenges and rewards of growing their own produce. The school received word Dec. 10 that the Essex County Soil & Water District had been awarded a $500 grant from the Honeybee Foundation to assist in the development of a school garden. “We are excited to have the opportunity to have our students participate in bringing local produce to the school,” said Science teacher Jason Fiegl, who together with Essex County Soil & Water director Dave Reckahn, has worked to bring a school and community garden into being. The grant application came out of discussions among the Future of Westport Agricultural Committee. Formed just last year, the committee set out to protect and promote local agricultural enterprises in Westport. One of the committee’s first priorities was promoting community gardens and local produce, and getting young people involved with farming and local produce was to be a large part of that. Fiegl said the money will be used to purchase materials and tools for the garden. A site for the garden has already been selected on school grounds, and Fiegl expects students to break ground on it sometime this spring. “We’re going to start small,” said Fiegl, “maybe get it going with a couple of raised beds and get the students interested in it. The long term goal, Fiegl said, is to expand the garden to where it may even supply produce for the school’s cafeteria,

giving students access to fresher, locally-grown fruits and vegetables. The Soil & Water District will continue to be involved in the process as well. “The partnership will include them testing the soils,” said Fiegl. “They’re going to help us assess our needs and put us in communication with the people who can supply those needs.” Many people have already stepped forward to assist in the effort. Some local farmers and gardeners have offered to help till the soil for the garden and others have offered donations of plants. “I think there’s always going to be a lot of community support for it,” Fiegl said. The garden will be open to use for all grade levels, and may even provide a tool for teachers. Though there are plenty of science lessons exemplified in the garden, Fiegl said, the main focus is getting them connected with where their food originates. “There’s often a disconnect with food,” he said. “People see it in the grocery store and they don’t really know where it came from. Here, we’re showing them that you can grow your own food and it’s right out back.” Adult volunteers will be needed to care for the garden during summer break. For more information about the Westport school garden and how to contribute to the effort, contact the Essex County Soil & Water District at 962-8225 or email

Westport puts brakes on Lions By Matt Bosley ELIZABETHTOWN — Westport demonstrated why they are one of the top teams in the conference Jan. 5 with a 50-9 win over Elizabethtown-Lewis in MVAC girls basketball. The Eagles went on a 12-0 run before allowing Elizabethtown its first basket mid-way through the second quarter. They would extend their lead to as much as 18, and went into halftime ahead 23-6. Westport created many turnovers with their highpressure defense and rebounded well on both ends of the floor. Crisp passing on offense sparked many opportunities for open shooters who were able to convert with mid-range jumpers. “We played good team defense throughout the game,” said Westport head coach Hokey McKinley. “The girls had been working hard on it and just kept plugging away, and that’s the secret to our success.” The Lions limited their turnovers – and Westport’s scoring – in the third quarter, but continued to struggle on offense. Clare Harwood’s 3-pointer would account for their entire second half points. Kearstin Ashline, Kylee Cassavaugh, and Shonna Brooks each had a field goal for Elizabethtown, who were without the inside presence of senior Cassie Jones. In the final period, the Eagles extended their lead with a 21-0 run. Martha McKinley added eight points in the quarter to bring her total to 13. She also finished with five steals. Christina Sherman defended well for Westport in the backcourt and finished with 12 points. Kalika Hopkins added six points, six rebounds, and eight assists.

Solution to last week’s puzzle


Recreational user fees revisited White Mountain National Forest in Campton, N.H., is an example of a national park that charges recreation fees to maintain its recreation facilities and trails.

people. Is it time for a “pay to play” recreation fee? Could such a program offer a regional economic stimulus and enhance the recreational experience? Would the region’s environmental community embrace the idea or go to battle?

Pay to play

SATURDAY January 9, 2010 tion. Every time an angler buys a rod or reel, or when a hunter purchases a firearm or a bow, a portion of these funds are also dedicated to wildlife conservation through a built in, federal excise tax on those products. These funds are distributed back to the states based on annual sporting license sales. Together, hunters and anglers contribute about $1.9 billion annually to conservation that would not otherwise exist. In fact, hunters and anglers are the nation’s primary source of funding for wildlife conservation. Without their financial contributions, conservation as we know it would cease to exist in our country. For hunters, trappers and anglers, mandatory contributions are included in the purchase of an annual license. But license sales can no longer support everyone’s fish, wildlife and other outdoor sporting adventures. Yet, very few opportunities exist for skiers, paddlers, hikers, birders, bikers, climbers and other non-consumptive outdoor travelers to contribute financially to the Conservation Fund. Too often, hunters and sportsmen fail to recognize the value of all the grunt work that many volunteers put into trail maintenance. It is a myth that 'self propelled travelers' contribute nothing to fund recreation in the Forest Preserve. There simply isn’t a viable method. If outdoor folk want to insure there is available first aid and emergency help for them in bad situations, habitat to enjoy and an educated and user-friendly department, they’re going to have to ante up. We've all got to figure out a method to pay our fair share. Experts in the field agree on the only long-term solution: “Nonhunters and nonanglers-the overwhelming majority of the population-must contribute on a regular basis.” Establishing a fund dedicated to outdoor recreation and trail improvement would assist in the development, maintenance and accessibility of New York’s recreational infrastructure and extensive trail systems. Such an effort would help establish parity between the various user groups and serve to bridge the growing divide between conservationists and environmentalists. Some may view such efforts as the commercialization of public lands or as Edward Abbey labeled it, ‘Industrial Tourism’ and ‘Wreckreation’ or the Disneyfication of outdoor recreation. However, the federal government and several states have already begun collecting user fees. The Federal Lands Recreational Enhancement Act, passed by Congress in 2004, authorized four agencies—the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the National Park Service, the Bureau of Land Management, and the U.S. Forest Service—to charge access fees in areas that fall under a broad definition of "high use." In Wisconsin, user fees and state taxes provide most of the money for operating state parks, forests, and trails. The fees include vehicle admission stickers, state trail passes, and camping fees. A trail pass is required for all people age 16 or older biking, in-line skating, horseback riding, or cross-country skiing on certain designated trails. In high use areas at some National Forests, there are now vending machines at major trailheads to dispense trail passes via cash or credit card. Cars parked at select trailheads are required to display a trailhead parking pass, which costs $15 for a season or $5 for three days. Failure to display the pass is punishable by a mandatory $250 fine. Next week’s column will investigate methods to implement, collect and enforce user fees. Reader ’s suggestions and comments are most welcome at

espite numerous studies conducted over the years by a variety of entities, there is little current data available on the number of visitors to the Adirondack Park, their preferences for activities or estimates of their expenditures. Due to the fact that there are no gates, toll booths or similar entrances into the Adirondack Park, regional tourism officials can only offer estimates on the total number of visitors to the Adirondack region. The most recent figures provided by the Adirondack Tourism Council estimates that 7 to 9 million tourists stay an average of 2 to 2.5 days each year. However, a federal study reported that 10 million visitors spent about two days (16 to 22.5 million visitor nights) in the Park. Overwhelmingly, the majority of visitors report the primary purpose of their visit was “nature based.” This should come as no surprise, as nearly half of the park’s 6.5 million acres are open to public use and the majority of these lands require no fee. Public access to state lands is free. Given that 90 percent of all Americans claim to have participated in at least one outdoor recreational activity over the last 12 months, the potential economic impact of a fee-based program for recreational access is considerable. Although fewer than 130,000 residents live in the Park year-round, the region hosts an estimated 70,000 seasonal residents and is within a day’s drive for over 90 million

The Adirondack Park, considered one of the world’s greatest experiments in environmental protection, has been recognized as a shining example of a “park with people” that coexist seamlessly with nature. Created as a “Central Park for the world,” the Adirondacks have been kept “forever wild for the free use and enjoyment” by constitutional convention for over a century. Free use of public lands is a component of our national, frontier heritage of free movement. It is a value as sacred as apple pie on the Fourth of July. We live in a place with lands so vast that citizens can generally go where they wish, when they want, so long as they do no harm. The concept of recreational user fees violates the valuable heritage of freedom of movement. However, it is time for those who regularly enjoy this heritage to guarantee that we have quality places to bike, hike, hunt and paddle in the future. If we want to continue to camp and hike, ski and fish, the discussion must begin soon. If the purchase of an Access Pass was mandatory for all users of state lands, instead of being a voluntary contribution, it could generate an enormous amount of funding for conservation, environmental protection and recreational infrastructure. The effort may also serve to reduce some of the friction that currently exists between the park’s various user groups. It would put everyone in the same boat. It's important to note that 100 percent of hunting, trapping and fishing license fees go directly back to conserva-

Locals see a disturbing trend in APA boathouse restrictions APA attempting to enact a ‘buzz kill?’ By Jon Alexander RAY BROOK — Although not entirely opposed to all proposed Adirondack Park Agency restrictions to the size, height and uses of boathouses inside the Blue Line, local officials say they’re worried that the new regulations represent another example of the agency seeking to inappropriately expand its jurisdiction. Historically exempt from APA oversight, boathouses have typically been defined and regulated by local municipalities. But with the APA’s new proposal to exert control, local officials see the move as an erosion of local authority. Adirondack Local Government Review Board Executive Director Fred Monroe, said Wednesday the APA has ramped up their efforts to increase the scope of its oversight. “It seems to us they are trying to expand jurisdiction in a unique way,” Monroe said. Despite his concerns over ever-increasing government control, Monroe said that some of the proposed regulations — like limiting the footprint of boathouses to 900 square feet and eliminating plumbing — do make some environmental sense. But when it comes to a provision in the regulations that would eliminate second-story decks above boathouses — a common summertime party spot for revelers and sunbathers — Monroe wonders if the agency just wants to enact a “buzz kill,” or merely spoil people’s enjoyable times. “There should be no fun had in the Adirondacks, so they are going to police it,” Monroe said. “The fun police.” In efforts to remake the image of the park and cultivate an annual base of monied tourists, local chambers of commerce, regional tourism development organizations and governments have focused recently on creating a “family-friendly” ambiance and tame visitor ’s experience in the Park, some observers have said. Last spring, the Adirondack North Country Association released a state survey that found that the majority of tourists in the Adirondacks are wealthy baby-boomers, looking for a plush yet superficially rustic experience. Meanwhile, the agency has apparently ramped up its efforts to remake or create rules and regulations, many of which are intended to eliminate or reduce man-made objects from view. Since 2005, the APA has created or significantly updated about 10 new regulations, often reinterpreting the State Land

Holocaust was not abstract numbers, but that these were real people,” said Savel. “The Holocaust was not the murder of 6 million people, but one, and then one, and then one.” Savel said he never had an interest in wood-working until he spent time with the late Karl Huttig, an Elizabethtown resident who was also Savel’s landlord. Huttig had grown up in Germany and become a master carver in the tradition of the world-renowned Oberamagau school there. “I said to him, ‘Teach me how to carve,’” said Savel, and Huttig agreed, giving twice-weekly lessons to both Savel and his wife for about five years. Following Huttig’s death, Savel looked for ways to continue his wood carving hobby, and decided to try to depict an image that often surfaced in his mind. “I was always really intrigued by a photograph of a little Jewish boy surrendering to the Nazis,” he said. “That little boy survived, became a doctor and would have been the same age as me.” Savel reproduced the image in a solid block of basswood and finished it with oil paint in full color. He continued producing similar carvings, all focused on the Holocaust. Not long afterward, Savel stumbled upon a book entitled “French Children of the Holocaust,” by Serge Klarsfeld. The book included photographs of more than 2,300 children who were victimized by the Nazis. “I got the book and I said, ‘That’s what I’ve got to do,’” he said. “I should be able to finish the book in another six or seven years.” One other recurring theme in Savel’s carvings is a bright yellow aura, or halo, that encompasses many of the people he depicts. “People always asked me why do I do it,” said Savel, explaining that it just seemed to come naturally in his carvings. “What I really think now is that it represents that little bit of divine spark that people have in them. It is symbolic of saying we are all alike in some way.” The aura is present on nearly all of Savel’s subjects whether they are Jews or non-Jews, victims or survivors. They are markedly absent whenever Nazis are depicted, because, Savel said, the Nazis rejected the value of human life and the oneness of humankind. Reproductions of corresponding photographs from Klarsfeld’s book are fixed to the back of each of Savel’s carvings, and 23 examples of the two are displayed side-by-side in the pages of Savel’s book. Savel’s book, entitled “Kaddish in Wood,” is available through the Florida Holocaust Museum at a cost of $20. Savel said people can also contact him if they are interested in purchasing a copy.

Master Plan or the APA Act in the process. Local officials blame the increase in APA effectiveness on the recent loss of GOP control in the state Senate and a subsequent influence of green groups at the agency. Even agency officials admit that the last several years has been a time of relatively active regulatory review and reform. In recent months, the agency has expanded shoreline setback rules to include formerly grandfathered structures, while attempting to narrow the definition of hunting and fishing cabins. This latter initiative was unsuccessful APA Chairman Curt Stiles said that it is time for agency reform — for the good of the state and local populations. He said this week that the changes enacted since 2008 under his tenure are meant to clear up an immense amount of ambiguity in the nearly 40-year-old regulations. The agency currently has three legislative initiatives waiting for state Assembly sponsorship, two of which have garnered general support from local governments. They are the first APA legislative initiatives in 20 years. As for the newest set of proposed regulations, he argues that the package stems from “good science” and seeks to only limit the damage to in-park waterways. “What we are trying to protect over the long term in the Adirondacks is water quality,” Stiles said. “Disturbances of the riparian buffer is what you are trying to avoid.” Numerous studies have cited vegetative clearing as a surefire means of increasing a lake’s nutrient load and causing its de-oxygenation, which threatens wildlife. Stiles noted that the limitations on height and footprint suggested by the agency are based on a park-wide survey of local municipal laws, which vary widely from town-to town. And when it comes to party decks, it’s all about appropriate classification. “The point is a simple one and it’s not a ‘no-party’ rule,” Stiles said, noting that in existing shoreline setback rules, a deck is restricted to 100 square feet. “Why does it make sense to be able to build a 1,000 square foot deck, ten-feet off of the water, and call it a boat house?” The agency is currently holding public hearings throughout the park regarding the boathouse regulations. Regulators and pro-tourism organizations consider the changes necessary steps to ensuring a viable Adirondack economy. And although the proposed boathouse rules are not prompting the ferocious dissent that has followed previous regulatory reforms, for local officials, they stand as just another sign of the times — ever increasing government intervention.
