County seeks answers to rabies outbreak

New Russia keeps Post Office, fewer hours

By Keith Lobdell ELIZABETHTOWN — Over the past three years, reported rabies cases have spiked in Essex County. From no positive reported cases in 2010 to 16 in 2012, the spread of the animal-borne disease has made its way into the Champlain Valley. State Public Health veterinarian Bryan Cherry spoke about the issue with members of the Essex County Board of Supervisors during its Jan. 28 ways and means committee meeting. “Northern Essex County has one of the highest concentrations of raccoon cases around the state,” Cherry said. “Seeing that much in the area can be concerning and we need to look at what can be done.” Jay Supervisor and board chairman Randy Douglas said that several of the reported cases happened within his township, with a majority of the 16 confirmed positives having been captured near the Essex-Clinton County border. “It is a major issue in our town. We had a skunk running down the road weird just a little while ago, and it was around Holy Name School and we had to call in a trapper so the kids could get out of the doors and to the bus,” Douglas said. “Instead of setting up a bait border so the raccoons and rabid animals cannot get into Canada, we should be doing something in Essex County.” CONTINUED ON PAGE 3

By Keith Lobdell NEW RUSSIA — The tiny outpost for the United States Postal Service in New Russia was overflowing with residents Jan. 18, all waiting to hear if they would continue to get their mail in their town or elsewhere. USPS Representative Jeff Sands announced to the crowd that the New Russia Post Office would remain open, but would operate under limited hours on weekdays. “We have done a lot of work behind the scenes,” Sands said. “Every Post Office nationwide has been evaluated and there are 13,000 post offices that are being reconfigured.” Sands said that the USPS sent out 45 customer surveys to residents of New Russia, with 27 being returned to the federal agency.

Continued from page 1 “We have spent a lot of time working and vaccinating in Essex County, but the focus has shifted by the federal government, and I do not want to talk for them, to making sure that the barrier remains in effect and they have so many resources so they moved where they were doing the bait drops,” Cherry said. In 2010, there were four confirmed positive rabies cases, two in Washington County and two in Warren County. In 2011, there were seven positives in Essex County and three in Clinton County (near the Essex County Border). All of the Essex County positives were found near Lake Champlain. The 16 cases in Essex County in 2012 were largerly found near the border with Clinton County, which also had three positive cases. Cherry said that the key to stopping the spread of rabies was to limit contact with them. “They will come and intact with people and pets,” he said. “They will come for your trash and they will

Lyceum series at Grange Hall WHALLONSBURG — On Tuesday, Jan. 29, the Whallonsburg Grange Hall opened its winter Lyceum series on “Land and Labor: The Past, Present and Future of Farming in America.” The weekly series, held on Tuesday nights at 7:30 p.m. through March 19, is presenting speakers from around the region who will lecture on how the fertile land of the Champlain Valley developed, the history of agricultural production in North America, the challenging economics of farming, its impact on culture, and the lives of farm families. The remaining schedule of the lectures follows: Feb. 5 through Feb. 26: four-part series on the History of Agriculture in North America, with Andy Buchanan, lecturer in global history at the University of Vermont. These four lectures will trace farming on the continent from native American cultivation through the agricultural roots of the Civil War, to the settlement of the west and the Great Depression, up to the development of modern agriculture

posed to rabies? Probably not, but we have to recommend rabies treatments because they do not have the animal.” Cherry said that in the fight against rabies, Essex County had one of the best allies in the state. “The Essex County Health Department has been extremely vigilant in their awareness and education on the matter,” he said. “They have been on top of this and have been very active with the community.”

come for your barbecue. That can lead to more and more chance of rabies getting spread because people interact with the raccoons because they’re a cute animal and this leads to increasing the raccoon population.” Cherry said that all pet owners should vaccinate their animals, and people should not feed animals that are not theirs. “Don't feed the animals. Do not feed the feral cat population. Feeding those animals means you are going to feed the raccoon population as well and if they are eating that food, then they are not eating the bait,” he said. Cherry also said that people should report any contact that they have with animals they feel could pose a threat as soon as possible and should also try to bring the animal to public health, using bats as an example. “Most treatments have to do with bats,” he said. “If they find a bat in their home, they need to catch it and get it to the public health department. What people do instead is call a few days later and say that there was a bat in the house and we were told to call. Were they ex-

This event is sponsored by Creative Solutions and Designs of Reynolds Road, Essex. The days are clearly getting longer, although we’re still in the frozen grip of winter. Between the first of February and the 28th, our day length will grow by an hour and sixteen minutes. Although I don’t believe any local maple syrup producers have started tapping yet, a couple of large operations in Clinton County have, simply because they have so many trees to tap they need to get started early. Another sure sign of spring is coming up on Feb. 24: the Daytona 500. This stock car race is well loved in Reber, with many of our neighbors hosting huge parties, get togethers that are larger than Christmas and Easter combined. You can pick out the homes of racing fans by the number of pickups jamming their driveways and front lawns on race day.

his Saturday evening, Feb. 2, the Champlain Valley Film Society will show the Oscar nominated film “Beasts of the Southern Wild” at the Whallonsburg Grange. This movie is a fantasy of sorts about a little girl living in the Louisiana swamps in a community of oddballs, with a cast of untrained actors. The man who plays her father runs a successful bakery in real life; show time is 7:30 p.m. The Champlain Area Trail Society would like to thank Essex residents George Davis, Gretel Schueller and Joanna Bateman for their help with the CATS’ writing contests, which were a major factor in CATS recently winning a Regional Office of Sustainable Tourism award. On Tuesday, Feb. 5, Andy Buchanan of the University of Vermont will give a talk on the origins of American agriculture, followed each Tuesday in February with three more lectures on the history and future of American agriculture. Andy’s talks all begin at 7:30. Coming up on Sunday, Feb. 10, is an afternoon of karaoke at the Grange, starting at one. There will be over 2,000 songs from

for the spring or summer travel contest. Both groups have done a great job of bringing more tourism and cultural impact to our area and are sure to continue the quality work they do. Well the voting is done and Keeseville is to be dissolved. The Village Office is now tasked with the job of developing the plan so the village can be absorbed into the communities of AuSable and Chesterfield as of January first 2015. We all must work together to make this as smooth and trouble free a transition as possible. As I hear of any information pertaining to this process I will report them here. Now is not the time for people to stall and sit back after all the wonderful progress that has been going on in our community the recent months. Regardless of the name this is an extremely viable community that has a tremendous amount to offer. My thanks to the Village Officials for all the hard work they have ahead of them.

Valley News Editorial

Early voting warrants more consideration


he members of the New York State Legislature recently drew the ire of many residents by rushing to pass a bill, a mistake that should not be repeated when it comes to the topic of early voting. Members of both parties are looking at an early voting bill (Assembly Bill No. 689 and Senate Bill 1461), which would allow residents of New York state to vote as early as 14 days before the General Election in November and seven days before a primary election. Something probably should be done to curb the trend of low voter turnout. We have to look no further than the village of Keeseville, which held a vote Jan. 22 that in large part determined the future of the municipality. In the end, village residents voted to dissolve their municipality by a total of 268 votes in favor of dissolution to 176 against. The residents spoke — or did they? In total, 444 votes were cast in the matter, which can be seen as good voter turnout. However, there are 955 registered voters in the village and roughly 1,800 residents. There was not even a 50-percent turnout in a village vote that meant residents would never get to have another village vote. We feel that this is a shame, that so few people cared about the fact that their way of life will certainly change. Whether it is for the better or for the worse is a debate that will still be had, but change it will, and only 46 percent of the registered voters in the town took the five minutes out of their lives to make their voices heard on one of the most important votes in the history of the village (made even more so because of the outcome). So, while we commend those who took to the polls, the majority of Keeseville residents should be ashamed of their apathy, expecially if their vote could have changed the outcome.

The turnout for the General Election statewide in 2012 was also 46 percent, a number which ranked New York as having the third lowest voter turnout in the nation. So something is wrong and needs to be changed, and we can agree with that. Lawmakers are saying that they want this to be enacted for this election season, which begins with primaries in September and the General Election Nov. 5. In a way, it sounds a lot like the legislative push on gun violence: here’s the problem, lets fix it now, here’s an idea, passed. On this one, the legislature needs to take a deep breath and listen to the foot soldiers, the ones who have been put in charge of the matter at the county level. In Essex County, Democratic Commissioner to the Board of Elections Robert PelldeChame basically called out lawmakers for what would be yet another unfunded state mandate, making counties spend more money on poll workers that would have to be set up in one of at least five early voting polling sites spread throughout the county. Additional mileage would also have to be paid. To make matters worse, bringing early voting to the state this year would give counties an unfunded mandate that they are not even prepared for, with counties already having spending plans for the year in place and, in the case of Essex County, having very little wiggle room to fund a new mandate from the state. So please, lawmakers, on this one, take a step back, look at all of the issues that come with this decision, and not just the ones that would lead to quick passage of these bills. You’ve already done that once this year, and it didn’t work out very well for you. —Denton Publications Editorial Board

Politically correct or bust?


t’s a term we hear bantered about in so many of the everyday things we think and do. The term is called “politically correct,” and it has become far more than just trying to keep in step with modern society. Being politically correct seems to be invading all parts of our society. Nobody wants to be politically incorrect because we’ve been told it’s wrong and we’re wrong if we’re not acting, speaking or even thinking correctly with the “mainstream” of political wisdom. When did our political system start dictating our attitude, our way of thinking, speaking, acting or just being ourselves? Is our political system now in complete control of how Americans must live in this the land of the free? In a culture that at one time prided itself on individualism, are we now being herded down a path of “get in step or else?” There is a lot of talk these days about the First and Second Amendment Rights in the U.S. Constitution. Is it really politicians who now dictate how we must live in order to be correctly in line with their version American society? Have they changed us from constituents to subjects? Somehow I fear we’ve allowed them to divide us into two schools of thought and labeled us Red and Blue. But why, with over 300 million people in the country, can’t we have various opinions? Are our political parties a reflection of the voters, or have the political parties divided us? And who is prospering the most from political correctness? As an example, growing up I did not come from a gun-oriented family. We had no guns, so I don’t have a strong bias toward the issue of gun ownership one way or another. On the issue of outlawing certain guns from law-abiding citizens because of the actions of a few unstable people doesn’t make sense any more than removing prayer from government property and educational institutions because a small minority claims to be offended. That doesn’t mean I favor the senseless killing of innocent lives any more than I favor the right to force anyone to worship only my God. Growing up, my parents and teachers taught me to think for myself. They were happy to provide guidance, but I was never encouraged to do anything but rea-

son out my own thought process and reach a conclusion of my own. Common Dan Alexander sense, basic Thoughts from logic, Behind the Pressline learning how to do my own research and recognizing right from wrong was all I needed to guide me to a position. Once that position was reached, others might try to persuade me. As an individual, you were respected for developing a position, and for either standing by it or being persuaded to alter that position if you were shown where your information or logic was flawed. Sadly political correctness is most recently from the Marxism culture dating back to World War I and World War II. If we compare the basic principles of political correctness with other cultures through the ages, the parallels are obvious. It’s a path we should not celebrate but try hard to avoid. So why are we so quick to give our government so much control, and why are these laws and rulings being handed down without much public debate? With so much information available today, we can’t claim to be uniformed. Are we just distracted and preoccupied, or are we being asked to let down our guard and allow others to think for us while being discouraged from independent thinking? When you consider the state of our economy, the ongoing stalemate taking place in halls of government coupled with the extravagances blooming in Washington, and the condition of radical states around the world, one has to wonder if we are still a fiercely independent nation, one that is ever evolving, one that was the envy of the world. We should not take lightly any changes to the rights we have been given by our forefathers, regardless of the implied intention of the changes.

Gun legislation helps

Class and classroom

To the Valley News: We the People In 1791 when our Bill of Rights including the Second Amendment, “Right to Bear Arms,” was adopted the population of our country was around 3.9 million, 222 years later in 2013 our population now stands at over 312 million. With such a precipitous increase in population and population density it only stands to reason that even a document as unique and enduring as our constitution must be subject to change and I can’t help but think that this was also the long term intention of its creators. There have been various acts, laws and bans relating to firearms that have been put into place since 1934. A number of these pieces of legislation have resulted in shifts that have been quite positive. I will highlight just a few. Take for instance the Machine Gun Ban voted into law in 1986 by Ronald Regan. Is anyone today arguing about the right to bear machine guns? Look at the impact of the Brady Handgun Violence Protection Act, introduced by our own Charles E Schumer and signed into law by Bill Clinton in 1993. As a consequence of this law, the FBI formed the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) and in cooperation with the Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms, Tobacco and Explosives (ATF) ran 107 million background checks on people attempting to buy handguns between 1994 and 2009. These background checks resulted in 1.9 million denials to purchase guns. In 2008, 69 percent of the denials were felons and fugitives from the law. In 2009 64 percent of the denials were felons and fugitives from the law. Keeping all these handguns out of the hands of felons and fugitives certainly does seem like a pretty good consequence to me. Next, let’s look at Federal Assault Weapon Ban (AWB), put into place for 10 years from 1994 to 2004. During just four years from 1990 to 1994 the ATF determined that there were a total of 1.4 million guns involved in crime. Prior to AWB 11.82 percent of these weapons were of the type included in the ban. After AWB this percentage dropped to 1.61 percent. Once again the AWB proved to be a piece of firearms legislation that did, in fact, produce positive results. Have all the many legislative laws governing firearms solved our “gun violence” problem? No, obviously they have not, but when you look at the facts it cannot be denied that they have at least helped. Of course, there will always be an extensive panels of “experts” that will testify before the public that for instance, tobacco and smoking do not cause cancer or that burning vast quantities of fossil fuels could not possibly lead to global warming and massive species extinctions, or that a few million people owning firearms with 30 shot clips designed to kill people isn’t really a part of the problem. We do in fact have the incredible privilege of living in a democracy where we all don’t have to march to the beat of agendas that are based upon avarice, greed and distorted visions of reality. There is also no need for us to perpetuate a climate of violence against others and against our larger living world. We the people do in fact have the right to decide the best way to protect our children and our world. Roger Frary Putnam Station

he Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development has administered the PISA or Program for International Assessment for years. On the surface it appears that American students have indeed fallen behind other wealthy, industrialized democracies. The PISA provides an impressive body of student outcomes that upon closer examination seem to provide at least a partial explanation for U.S. stuBy Scot Hurlburt dent performance of these international exams. U.S. student performance was compared to student outcomes from seven other similar industrial democracies. One of the most salient outcomes offered an explanation for U.S. student performance that has fallen behind. Perhaps the most salient revelation from the data was that social class inequity in the U.S. is greater than in any of the comparative countries. In every country, students at the bottom of the social class distribution did more poorly than their more well off peers. Because there are so many more U.S. test takers at the bottom of the social class distribution than their comparative peers, U.S. students perform more poorly. If U.S. students had a similar social class distribution seen in comparative nation’s average reading scores would be higher for the U.S. than in comparative countries like France, South Korea and United Kingdom. Average math scores for U.S. students would improve to the international average if U.S. students had a similar social class distribution to their group of comparison countries. In fact, the U.S. would improve to tenth in Math and fourth in Reading in international comparisons. Currently, the U.S. is 14th in reading and 25th in math respectively. At all points in the social class distribution, U.S. students are performing worse and in some instances substantially worse than students in the top performing countries Finland, Canada and South Korea. One area where U.S. students did do better than comparison countries was at the very bottom of the social class distribution where U.S. students have improved each year while comparison country outcomes for this group were unimproved or worsened. These international test outcomes seem to affirm what has long been known and advanced by sociological and educational experts as empirical; students living in poverty do less well. Students that are living in poverty, living under the threat of crime, are lacking sufficient familial resources, are lacking health care, have a parent or parents that are suffering physical or mental health issues or are incarcerated do not perform as well as their more well off peers. As our national education system has come under fire over this last decade, many new educational initiatives and approaches have been applied with what would appear to be nominal results. It would appear that this most recent study and its outcomes seem to suggest what has long been known, the effects of poverty, crime and a general lack of resources may continue to drag U.S. student performance downward. This affirming news comes at a most inopportune time as the U.S. economy continues to perform poorly and there are many deliberations occurring politically both locally and nationally that are seeking to cut back on government supports for the most vulnerable among us. These cutbacks may keep disadvantaged Americans at a less upwardly mobile position. As President Obama’s health care program which guarantees health care for every American is about to be implemented, it will be interesting to see if American educational outcomes improve as a result. If this litmus test proves successful and educational outcomes do improve perhaps that outcome would validate claims by researchers that these kinds of government supports that go across all socioeconomic classes do improve educational attainment more than new educational strategies. If successful, it may also take the bulls’ eye off the back of the American educational system. Remember all kids count. Reach the writer

Likes editorial To the Valley News: Excellent editorial regarding the new gun laws that were rammed through. The Governor is first and foremost a politician with his sights on The White House (as if the current President isn't liberal enough). These laws are nothing more than a publicity stunt and will not accomplish the stated goal of reducing gun violence. After all, DWI, rape, theft, etc. are all illegal and that doesn't seem to matter to those intent on breaking the law. Kudos to Dan Stec and Betty Little for voting against this. John Kearney Lake George


Gun law praised To the Valley News: The letter from Lorraine Kovarovic of Schroon Lake asks why do responsible gun owners get more laws? No one can argue that criminals that use guns should be treated harshly by our legal system! This being said I would like to know why a background check of any honest person would violate their rights as defined in the Second Amendment! Ms. Kovarovic also asks why is there no outcry when people are killed by drunk drivers, or blunt objects such as baseball bats or tire irons! I have to ask where has she been as there has certainly been outcries about these types of deaths! Mothers Against Drunk Drivers (MADD) has been responsible for making law enforcement more vigilant against people who would harm others by driving drunk and crimes involving weapons are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law! She goes on to say “Before you ask for our guns let me ask you to take a breath and think!” I have to ask who is asking her or anyone else for his or her guns? I own four pistols, four rifles and three shotguns! With this I also own a collection of antique firearms! I have had a Concealed Carry Permit for 50 years and had to undergo a complete background check! I fail to understand why a responsible gun owner would object to this! Even the fools at the NRA want people with mental problems as well as those with criminal backgrounds to be stopped from getting their hands on guns! It is unfortunate that there is an element in our society that wants to arm themselves with assault weapons because they are insecure! As a sportsman and a hunter I have no need for anything resembling an assault weapon or a gun with a high capacity magazine! Assault type weapons belong in the hands of those in our military and law enforcement! I can assure Ms. Kovarovic there is an outcry from men and women all across this country and the children who died at Newtown, Conn., will be remembered! The sad note is that it took the lives of these innocents to wake the American public! The New York State governor and legislature are to be commended for doing the responsible thing and passing laws that don’t take any liberties away from responsible gun owners! Those who grew up in the North Country can still look forward to hunting and possessing their favorite handguns, rifles and shotguns under these new laws! Background checks on everyone will help us to weed out those who should not be in procession of any kind of weapon! Yes, Lorraine, there will still be a deranged person out there who will unfortunately kill, but just like the coming of a new day we can’t stop it! What we can do is make it brighter by trying to make our world a safer place for everyone! Gary P. Guido Ticonderoga

Who is safer To the Valley News: Who is safer? Thanks to our power hungry politicians in Albany, NYS is supposed to be a safer place. Is the woman that has a pistol to protect herself, now limited to seven rounds, feel safer? If two men break into her apartment intending on doing her harm, and with the fear and adrenaline happening, she misses

her assailants, or only stops one before running out of ammo, wouldn’t another seven in her magazine make her safer? What about another woman, or for that matter a man, that can’t or doesn’t want a pistol in the house. Maybe they did have a semi auto defensive rifle that they used to protect themselves. Are they safer now that they have to dispose of this gun? Or, if they are lucky enough to have one that they are “allowed” to keep, are they safer with a magazine with only seven rounds in a situation like the one above? Will the person who now has to register their gun and ammunition purchases in State databases, be safer from a criminal with good computer skill, who might break into that database, and then come looking to steal these items? I would like to inform all those people that think this new law is so great, that they are not a bit safer from evil intent. The guns and magazines that are now banned in NYS, are in great supply all over the country. A person making a well planned attack such as the ones in CO or CT, can go to a neighboring state and purchase or steal what they deem necessary to inflict harm on a non-suspecting public. Of course now when that happens, don’t expect your law abiding neighbor to be able to help stop it, the great State of New York took his gun away! Someone recently wrote saying how they had great faith in the local and State police. I have great faith in them to. They do an excellent job when they are at the scene. Unfortunately, they are often busy at another scene, or sometimes 45 minutes away. An awful lot of violence can occur before they arrive. I would feel much safer having the tools to protect myself, family and neighbors! Hope you feel safer. I know I don’t! Cal Coolidge Jay

Ban part of NWO To the Valley News: With all the hype, outright lies about guns and gun control, not one word about why the government wants guns removed from the hands of law abiding citizens. It’s not about stopping crime on making little Jonnys and Suzies safer in the gun free school killing zones. No, it’s called “The new world order.” Armed citizens cannot be enslaved by the United Nations “New World Order.” Think about what happens when the constitution and the Bill of Rights is banned. Have you ever read Hitler ’s 1938 gun control act and the US of A’s 1968 gun control act? Almost word for word! Look at the millions of disarmed citizens butchered worldwide, which for your information is still going on. Those that beat their weapons into plows, will plow for those that don’t. NRA Life Member George Phillips Chestertown

Egglefield donates over $1,000 to NCSPCA with event By Katherine Clark

Fri., Feb. 1 and Mon., Feb. 4, 2013

ELIZABETHTOWN — Egglefield Ford in Elizabethtown drove for their community and delivered a check for $1,801 check to the North Country SPCA. Ford Motor Company collaborated with its dealers to launch a Drive 4 UR Community, a test drive fundraising event to raise money for local nonprofit organizations. Each dealership chose a nonprofit to benefit. There was also a national drawing for a new Ford Focus visitors could sign up for. Though the vehicle wasn’t won locally, the event raised money locally for the North Country SPCA. Dennis Egglefield, owner of Egglefield Ford, said the most amazing part of the fundraiser was that the community was pouring in that day to help. “It was a great day and there was a lot of enthusiasm, over 130 people came in and signed up spent a few minutes with us and really showed support for the SPCA,” Peter Allen, General Manager at Egglefield, said. “We have a fantastic community.” During the days events, people came in, got to visit with a few of the SPCA animals that were brought in for the day and many came to share stories of successful adoptions from the shelter. A few animals even found their homes during the drive. “One of our salesman brought home his cat that day,” Egglefield said. The dealership donated $5 per person that attended the event and for the first 50 people,

Joseph Shaw Continued from page 1 “The bank is in great shape,” he said. “Jon Cooper has been a fantastic believer in supporting the community, as I am too. I want to continue to keep looking at

Ford Motor Companies matched the $5 donation. Margaret Reuther said the money raised will go directly to the shelter ’s capital campaign which is helping the shelter complete the construction of their new shelter in Elizabethtown. The shelter is due to open in March of this year she said. The same fundraiser was done at all dealerships and Egglefield said it was amazing for

things and continue to grow off what he did and provide constant improvement.” Shaw said that in his new role, he is actually looking forward to being closer to home when the work day ends. “There were times that I

would be gone for days and living in hotels for the trips that I had to take,” Shaw said. “With all of our branches here in the region, it is nice that I will be able to drive home at night from any of them.” In going to those branch-

such a small community they did very well compared to dealerships in larger towns. The closeness of the community was one reason he said the dealership chose to fund a local group as opposed a national charity. “We wanted to keep our community’s dollars and help our neighbors,” Egglefield said. The dealership will be hosting another event for Drive for Your School in the next few months.
