Attorney for Douglas fires back at Adirondack Council

We’re pulling for you By Matt Bosley

By Jon Alexander ELIZABETHTOWN — The attorney for Black Brook property owner Leroy Douglas is firing back at the Adirondack Council after reports indicated that Douglas had previously attempted to sell a portion of his property to the state in 2000 and then alleged that environmentalists and state officials colluded in an attempt to drive him off of his land. Documents released Wednesday by the state Department of Environmental Conservation indicated that Leroy Douglas offered to sell the 139-acre Bainbridge parcel to the state. The revelation led Adirondack Council spokesman John Sheehan to further question Douglas’s credibility, arguing the documents constituted proof the Black Brook landowner wasn’t being pressured to sell by anyone and that a $2.1 million suit against the green group is baseless. But according to Douglas’s attorney Matt Norfolk of Lake Placid, attempts made to sell the small parcel a decade ago have nothing to do with the lawsuit, which concerns other parts of the 3,500-acre Silver Lake parcel. Norfolk said that recent reports from WNBZ and North Country Public Radio suggesting that the lawsuit filed by Douglas involved a 139-acre piece of land west of Silver Lake known as the Bainbridge Property, were off target. He said the property in question, one involved in past Adirondack Park Agency enforcement proceedings and is at issue in the pending civil lawsuit against The Adirondack Council, is part of a different, 3,500-acre tract of land on Silver Lake. In 2007, the APA initiated enforcement proceedings against Douglas for what the agency suspected may have been illegal work on a road that bordered a wetland and runs through the expansive property. The APA was in negotiations with Douglas, but then undertook the enforcement proceedings. Norfolk contends this is a result of the Adirondack Council’s influence at the APA, specifically naming Council chairman Brian Ruder, who happens to own property next to Douglas’ property. “The lawsuit pending against The Adirondack Council, Mr. Ruder and Hawkeye Conservationists is premised on allegations that the defendants intentionally and wrongfully interfered with the settlement agreement entered into between APA and Mr. Douglas,” Norfolk said. “But, Mr. Douglas’ past intentions to sell the Bainbridge Property are not at issue in the pending lawsuit, and have nothing to do with

ESSEX — Ferry service at the site of the former Lake Champlain Bridge is now in operation, but another southerly crossing has been shut down for the rest of winter. On Feb. 2, officials at Lake Champlain Transportation, the company that owns and operates year-round ferry service between New York and Vermont, announced the closure of its Essex-Charlotte crossing following its last scheduled run Feb. 3. It will remain closed until spring. Heather Stewart is operations manager at Lake Champlain Transportation. She said thickening ice on the lake was quickly closing the window of opportunity to reassign ferries. “It was our hope to keep a boat at the Essex-Charlotte crossing longer,” said Stewart, “but the ice is getting thick and

Essex Ferry closed until spring By Matt Bosley


WESTPORT — One person’s trash may be something one local student and her family can treasure. Four local schools are currently collecting metal pull tabs to show their support for Molly Rascoe, a junior at Westport Central School. This past summer, Molly was diagnosed with Wegener's granulomatosis, a rare disease that inflames blood vessels and can cause poor circulation to vital organs such as the lungs or kidneys. In Molly’s case, the disease caused her kidneys to fail. Continued treatment could put her Wegener ’s syndrome into remission, though, and she could become a candidate for a kidney transplant before the end of this year. In the meantime, she travels to Fletcher Allen

Investigation into double homicide continues By Jeremiah S. Papineau DANNEMORA — State Police are continuing their investigation into the deaths of Timothy Carter, 52, Dannemora, and Patricia Howard, 43, Plattsburgh. Howard and Carter were found shot to death early Sunday in Howard’s State Route 374 home on Chazy Lake. During a press conference Monday, State Police Troop B Commander Richard C. Smith Jr. released a positive identification of the victims, which was previously not officially disclosed. Smith stated their bodies were discovered by State Police who were responding to a distress call to the Plattsburgh barracks. The initial call, Smith said, came from Howard, who claimed Anthony V. Pavone, 52, Morrisonville, was considered to be trespassing after knocking on the door of Howard’s home and asked to leave. However, the situation wasn’t believed to have become violent when the au-

thorities were contacted, said Capt. Robert LaFountain of the Bureau of Criminal Investigation. “There was no indication of the individual using violence or being armed at the time we received the call,” said LaFountain. LaFountain stated Carter and Howard were “acquaintances” but didn’t further describe their relationship and

how it did or did not relate to Howard’s previous relationship with Pavone. “What we will release is that there was a relationship, a rather long relationship between Pavone and Ms. Howard. But, that relationship was recently over with,” said LaFountain. When asked by one reporter if the double homicide was the result of a “love tri-

angle,” Smith said he wouldn’t characterize the relationships in that manner. “I wouldn’t use the term love triangle but certainly relationships may have played a part in this crime,” said Smith. Autopsies of Howard and Carter found the cause of death for each to be a fatal gunshot wound. Clinton County Coroner David C. Donah ruled the deaths homicides. As of Monday afternoon, Smith stated law enforcement agencies have intensified their search for Pavone, but stopped short of naming him a suspect in the shootings. “We’re not going to label Mr. Pavone as a suspect,” said Smith, who added Pavone has no prior criminal history. “He’s just an individual we need to speak to relative to this crime.” Currently, the search for Pavone continues, focusing on Clinton and Essex Counties, said LaFountain. Authorities are attempting to locate a black 2001 GMC Sierra registered to Pavone with New York registration EAK 3536. The regular cab vehicle has a plow frame, 8-foot bed and a yellow light on the roof. A rectangular Marine Corps sticker is on the vehicle’s bumper and a circular Marine Corps sticker is affixed in the vehicle’s rear window, according to a department report. “We’re asking the public to be especially observant for any suspicious activity ... we have no investigative leads that would lead us to believe that either Mr. Pavone or that pick-up have left the area,” said Smith. If anyone sees Pavone, who is a former U.S. Marine and retired corrections officer, he is not to be approached, authorities said. Those with any information about Pavone or his whereabouts are asked to contact authorities at 5633761 or call 9-1-1. “Call us and we’ll check it out,” said Smith.

e start the week off with a big Happy Birthday to a very special person in our community, John Remancus celebrated his 99th birthday this past week. I have some great memories of working with John when he and Harold Perkett ran the Sportsman’s Dinner. I believe he holds the title of being our oldest Willsboro citizen at this time. Go, John, for the big 100 next year. I learned this week from a very satisfied local couple, who proved that one can have an outstanding evening right here in Willsboro. Last Sunday, Tami & Paul Mero enjoyed the community skiing program at Whiteface, then that evening they attended the “Love & Laugh” benefit at the Willsboro School. This was a benefit for the Drama Club. They reported the group truly transformed the school cafeteria into a beautiful dining room, with dimmed lights, flowers, fine linen and beautiful dishes. The meal was great and each table was set for 12, with students as servers, all getting their meals at the same time. Between each course, they were entertained by talented musicians. They were blown away and highly recommend, that if Derrick Hopkins and the drama club do this again, try not to miss the experience. By the way it was Tami’s birthday and she really felt it was one she will remember for a long time. It looks like Feb. 7th could be a very busy

time here in our community, many will be watching the Super Bowl with friends, or you could go enjoy the Chocolate Tasting at the Paine Library from 3 to 5 p.m. You will get to taste many chocolate desserts served with tea all for $5 a person. I do believe there will also be some treats for sale. In cased you missed the Senior class performance at the local school as they perform “All I Really need to Know I learned in Kindergarted” will have a second showing with a 2 p.m. matinee on the 7th, the other performance was on Saturday evening at 7:30. Plus the chance to go to another Coffee House evening at the Congregational Church on Saturday evening. Wow; a burst events that most of us will find hard to take it all in on one weekend. Hope you remember to treat your loved one to something special for Valentine’s Day, it is only a week away. A reminder there are still Willsboro Heritage calendars available at several local places of business for $9 each, these calendars have many of our older community pictures and they become collector’s items. Happy Birthday to Roger King 2/6, Taylor Strong 2/6, Edna Coonrod 2/7, Pete Dwyer 2/8, Nicholas Ball 2/9, Dillon Spooner 2/10, Cody Sayward 2/10, Faye Cushing 2/10, Doug Cushing 2/10, Ronald Strong 2/11, Dian Ahrent 2/11, Nancy Ahrent 2/12, Olivia Kelly 2/12, Ed (Bud) Cushing 2/12.

NORTHCOUNTRYSPCA Kathy L. Wilcox • 962-8604 •


ne issue that we deal with on a too-frequent basis at the NCSPCA is animal abuse/neglect. Traumatized pets come to us from homes in which they were tied outside without adequate shelter or water, mistreated or beaten when they misbehaved, or otherwise subjected to intolerable living conditions. Many of these dogs and cats require intensive, long-term efforts to socialize them and to help them develop trust. Some of them never really become socialized enough to be successfully adopted. These pets may become longterm residents of the shelter and never find a loving, forever home. You can help prevent this sad outcome by being an observant reported of abuse. If you see an animal who is being neglected or abused, a simple phone call will alert authorities to investigate the matter. The

Essex County Sheriff ’s Office (873-6916) and the NY State Police (897-2000) will follow up on these reports. In addition, your local Animal Control Officer is an expert on animal abuse. You can find a listing of area Animal Control Officers on our website, This week's featured pet is Bashful, a young tabby shorthair/mix who is absolutely enchanting. From her little pink nose and patchwork face to her tiger-striped tail, she is the cutest little girl around. Bashful is a gentle cat who really is not as shy as her name. She is most content when a warm lap is available and will reward you with lots of purrs and love. This sweetie would be a great addition to almost any home. If you are looking for a cat who has a great disposition, you definitely need to meet Bashful!

Colin Wells •


paid a long overdue visit to Westport Central School last week, figuring it was high time I gave some space to the phenomenal season that the boys and girls are both having on the basketball court. The girls clinched their Division II title so long ago it must seem like a hazy memory by now. I asked Coach Rascoe about it, and he passed the question on to his daughter Molly, who's on the team. "Hey, when did you guys clinch the title? Was it against Chazy?" Molly didn’t miss a beat: "The first game!" she burst out, laughing. It's been that kind of year. The boys, also undefeated, have a little further to go, depending on the outcome of their game against Indian Lake, which hasn't happened as I write this, but will have by the time you read it. Whatever that result, both teams and their coaches deserve a big round of applause for turning in so many stellar performances this year. Coach Rascoe and Molly also wanted me to pass on their thanks to everyone who's helped collect tabs in the "Pull Tabs for Molly" campaign, which netted 48 pounds of tabs. The campaign was mounted to help pay for medical treatment for Molly, who was stricken with a rare autoimmune disease called Wegener's granulomatosis last year, which caused kidney failure among other problems. So Molly has had to go to Burlington for dialysis three times a week since last July. As you can tell, it doesn't seem to have dampened her spirits. She's doing really well and she looks great. At the end of March, the doctors will decide if she's in remission. If she makes it through six months in remission, which takes her to the end of September, she'll be eligible for a kidney

transplant. We'll all be keeping her in our thoughts, I'm sure. Molly and her dad say the community has been wonderfully supportive in many ways. One source of support has been the Christopher Emmet Hallowell Fund, which was started by the friends and family of Westport resident Christopher Hallowell after he passed away in December 2002, to help families with children who face extensive medical treatment pay for incidental costs such as travel, meals, and lodging. The CEH fund is relatively new, and I'm helping them get the word out that this resource is available to families from Clinton, Essex, and Franklin counties. If you're interested, drop me an email and I'll be happy to answer your questions about it and send you a brochure. In fact, the CEH fund was the latest nonprofit to benefit from donations at one of the Dogwood Bread Company's Senior / Community Luncheons, which was held in January at the bakery in Wadhams. On behalf of the fund, I'd like to thank Dogwood owners Courtney and Keri Fair, as well as Cathy Quaglietta and everyone else who helped. The next luncheon is coming up later in February. I'll fill you in next week. Last but certainly not least, congratulations to Homer Estus, who was honored by the fire department on February 3 for 50 years of dedicated service as a Westport volunteer firefighter, with at least a decade as firefighter in Essex before that. We are truly fortunate to have a man like Homer Estus here in our small town. His selfless service makes Homer a valuable role model for the rest of us. We can only say that we are profoundly grateful.

I’m married to Amy Ivy, the gardening maven, and have two children who both live in Texas and despise winter. I live here because I like it and it’s a lot like the place in Maine where I grew up.

He noted that ten years ago demand was strong for retail space in town but not so these days. While in town, my dog Ginny and I ran into Puss LaPine, who said that all is quiet at the transfer station. Ginny is very fond of Mr. LaPine because of his generosity with dog biscuits. I’ve seen more logging going on recently in this part of Essex. I talked to John Mitchell

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Same as nepotism

To the editor: County manager Dan Palmer's description of his hiring practice is equivalent to the definition of nepotism. He justified hiring a family member on the grounds that they are a safe bet since they have a "strong work ethic, so its a known quantity." He went on to say that this is very critical since many of the positions become permanent so you don't want to make a mistake. Are we to believe that it has nothing to do with getting one's family member a permanent tax-payer funded position with good benefits? Given that there are appoximately 38,000 people in Essex county and we have one of the highest rates of unemployment in the state, there is certainly no shortage of qualified people that would like a good paying permanent job with benefits. It is time for the county to implement and enforce standard anti-nepotism hiring procedures that are the norm throughout the country. Dominic Eisinger Keene

Starve the war

To The editor: Our national debt in the United States currently is over $12 trillion. This amouts to over $40 thousand of debt per U.S. citizen. With a projected three trillion dollar cost for Iraq and Afghanistan, you have to wonder where the money is coming from. It is from education and health care, for starters. On Feb. 1, the White House will present its Fiscal Year 2010 budget, which is expected to include a record-shattering $709 billion for "defense" with $159 billion for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Congress will also vote this spring on President Obama's request for another $33 billion for the Afghanistan escalation on top of the $709 billion. At a time when millions of Americans are jobless and cities and towns across the country are slashing budgets for basic services, we urgently need to challenge the Administration's budgetary priorities. Across the country students, teachers, women, the disabled, hospital and healthcare workers, the homeless, domestic workers, the unemployed, seniors and many others are protesting deep budget cuts to essential programs. It's time to join our efforts for a just economy with our call for peace and to tell Congress we can't afford war anymore. Starve the war, not the nation! Jim King, Cadyville

Snow removers are local heros

To the editor: I believe we speak for many people when we say home much we appreciate the work of our local men and women and the supervisors who work for the highway departments of the towns, the counties and the state. My wife and I drive from Elizabethtown to Plattsburgh about once a week and at all hours, whether it is snowing or clear. So far, in this severe winter, we have never had to contend with icy, dangerous roads. Hats off to the snow crews. Max and Cynthia Kortepeter, New Russia


The benefit that kept on giving

To the editor: The Willsboro Drama Club’s Benefit at the Willsboro School last Sunday evening was an extraordinary event, organized by Derrick Hopkins, the Drama Clubs fearless leader, and Steve Broadwell, the Superintendent of the school. I felt like I was enjoying an evening out in a big city cabaret with a wonderful dinner and first class entertainment. And all that was true, except it was the Willsboro school cafeteria transformed for the evening with tablecloths, discreet lighting, fine china, and a piano. Performers that we have gotten to know and love from plays all over the North Country sang between the five courses of a delicious dinner cooked by Derrick’s brother and sister-in-law, who own a restaurant. Music ranged from the Broadway stage to country radio and beyond. Serving of the food was done by members of the Willsboro Drama Club. They were all dressed in black and white, and their presentation of each course was delightfully choreographed. And there was a silent auction on top of all that. Congratulations to everyone involved for such a beautiful event. I can’t stop talking about what a great time I had. If this event should happen again, and I surely hope it does, I say you should run, not walk, to get your tickets.

Gift drive benefitted families

To the editor: The Third Annual Holiday Gift Drive hosted by the Cobble Hill Inn in Elizabethtown was a tremendous success with 145 gifts donated that will benefit local youth through Families First in Essex County, Inc. People were asked to donate a new toy with a value of at least $10. For their donation they received a wonderful buffet dinner, drinks and great conversation with friends by the fire. In addition a 50/50 raffle was held raising $400. The winner, Julius Burres, very graciously donated $100 back so that Families First could buy more toys for the kids in need. Each year Families First provides toys for youth in need throughout Essex County. Local Businesses and residents are asked if they would like to adopt a child or a whole family. They are given a list with the child’s age, sex and some suggestions of things that they would like. They shop and wrap the gifts which are then distributed to families who may otherwise not have a Christmas for their kids. This year the need was tremendously high. As of Dec. 15, Families First had 230 kids identified as needing gifts, with phone calls asking for help still coming in. In this year of tremendous hardship, the community was very generous in their giving. In the end, 294 youth received gifts (76 families). Families First in Essex County, Inc., provides support to families in Essex County who have children with emotional and/or behavioral challenges who are at risk of out-of-home placement. Through flexible and individualized service plans, parents are provided the support needed to create safe, nurturing, positive environments for their children to learn and grow. Families First would like to thank the Community for its tremendous generosity in helping to fulfill this need.

SATURDAY February 6, 2010

Could the fat police be looking for me? I

have been struggling with my weight for some time and only maintained a normal weight during a fifteen year period where I ran almost every day. After two laparoscopic surgeries on my right knee, it has become arthritic and running is not an option. In hindsight I could have found an alternative exercise option but I didn’t. Instead, I told myself that I was just too busy to exercise and besides, my knee was and is brutally painful. My story is probably not unusual in America these days. Obesity in America has reached epidemic proportions according to most government and public health sources. What is especially troubling is the significant number of youth that are already overweight and the rate at which obesity is increasing among this age group. Seventy two million adults in America are overweight. 18 percent of American children are overweight and the rates have doubled for adults since 1980 and tripled for children. Type II diabetes, once a disease of adults, is now all too common among children. A recent CDC study of 15-17 year olds found that 70 percent of those tested already had one cardiovascular risk factor and 39 percent had more than one risk factor. Some researchers have proffered an ominous forecast for obese youth. Many of today’s obese children may not live as long as their parents if they are unable to maintain a healthier weight. Given what is known about obesity may cause some to conclude that somewhere in the not too distant future, a “perfect storm” is waiting to happen in our health care system. Obesity influences many illnesses including, heart disease, hypertension, stroke, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, back problems, sleep issues and on and on. The human, personal cost of obesity will be titanic and the financial cost may be so great that it will challenge the health care system capacity by a “factor of fifty” when compared to today. Last year, the Mississippi legislature took a radical step to punctuate the seriousness of the

obesity problem in their state. Mississippi has one of the highest rates of obesity in the country. House Bill 282 was offered to the legislature by Representative W.T. Mayhall. Ostensibly, the bill prohibits certain restaurants from serving obese patrons. Patrons would step on a scale as they entered the restaurant and if their BMI registered in excess of 30, they could not be served. When Rep. Mayhall By Scot Hurlburt was questioned about the bill he revealed that he knew that the bill would not pass and, it did not. Mahall and his supporters wanted to create some energy around the obesity issue so that people would understand just how serious the problem has become. The bill was rightfully defeated and we still have the right to make ourselves ill or dead by smoking, abusing alcohol, abusing illicit and or prescription drugs and yes, by eating ourselves sick or dead. For my part, I have initiated an exercise program and have also endeavored to reduce my caloric intake. On some level, losing weight is simple, burn more calories than you take in. I am about to test that hypothesis. If you have discovered a weight loss approach that works, I would appreciate hearing from you. I may not have much time left. It may only be a matter of time before the fat police come for me and as I sit now, I am guilty as charged. Remember, all kids count.

Multi-stacking to magnify those savings


n previous columns, I’ve discussed coupon stacking at great length. It’s one of the easiest ways not only to reduce the cost of items we’re buying but also to get items for free. Many stores allow shoppers to stack one store coupon and one manufacturer coupon together, which gives us an even deeper discount on the same item. Just a few days ago I purchased a $2.50 tube of toothpaste. I used a $1.50 manufacturer coupon for the toothpaste and I added to it a $1 store-issued coupon for the same toothpaste. With a total of $2.50 in coupon value, the toothpaste was free! And free is, of course, my favorite price to pay. Store coupons are offered in different formats, so it’s important to note which kinds your stores offer. Do some research. Many stores print their store coupons in a weekly flyer. Others offer printable coupons on the store’s Web site. Still others offer store coupons electronically. These electronic coupons can be loaded to your shoppers’ card and stacked with manufacturer coupons for additional savings. Now, when we combine coupon stacking with other deals running at the store at the same time, our savings increase even more. What’s better than stacking? Multi-stacking! When we multi-stack at the store, we use both store and manufacturer coupons and take advantage of additional money-back deals involved. These additional deals typically offer instant savings at the register or a money-back coupon (commonly called a Catalina) that prints at the register for savings on a subsequent shopping trip. Here’s an example. One of my stores recently advertised a sale offering a Catalina coupon good for $5 off your next shopping trip if you purchased any two items in the flyer. When I see an advertisement like this, I immediately look for the items that are going to be the best deals — typically, the items for which I already have both store and manufacturer coupons. During this particular sale, the store had triple-packs of baby wipes on sale for $5.99. Buying two items in the promotion will earn me a $5 coupon for my next shopping trip. To keep track of my savings, I always figure that $5 savings into my current shop-

ping trip. I may pay that $5 outof-pocket at the register to buy these items today but I get it right back in the form of a Catalina good for $5 off my next shopping trip. So, buying two packages of wipes costs $11.98 but I’ll get $5 of that back at checkout. That essentially brings the cost of the two packages of wipes down to $6.98 for 2 packages. To bring the price down further, we’re going to stack By Jill Cataldo coupons here, too! I had a manufacturer coupon for $2 off 2 packages of wipes. The wipes were also on my electronic store coupons for $1.50 off each package. So, stacking these coupons together yields another $5 in savings. After coupons, I paid $6.98 for the two triple-packs of baby wipes and I received the $5 Catalina coupon at the register. Since I got $5 of my original $6.98 back, the end cost of these two items was just $1.98! Triple-packs of baby wipes at less than a dollar a package? That’s a great price … made possible by multi-stacking! Consider that each triple-pack started out at $5.99 before all of these discounts were put together. Any time I see sales at the supermarket that involve moneyback promotions, I always look for both store and manufacturer coupons to help reduce the final price I pay even further. In the weeks ahead, I’ll show you more examples of multi-stacking and explain how to make the most out of these promotions.

SATURDAY February 6, 2010

Good government cannot exist in a vacuum L

ast summer, First Lady Michelle Obama was criticized for having hired an “unprecedented number of staffers” to “cater to her every whim and to satisfy her every request in the midst of the Great Recession.” An e-mail campaign followed that included information stating that with 22 staffers with combined annual salaries of $1.6 million, the First Lady had amassed an army of employees greater than any before her. The e-mail claimed that prior first ladies had nowhere near as many employees, saying Jackie Kennedy, Rosalynn Carter and Laura Bush had just one while even Hillary Clinton had only three. The truth, of course, lay somewhere in between. When contacted by the national media, Katie McCormick Lelyveld, Michelle Obama’s press secretary, actually put the first lady’s office staff at 24. That may indeed be the largest of any first lady to date. But other assertions were way off. Hillary Clinton actually had 19 staffers answering directly to her, while Laura Bush wasn’t far behind with 18 and $1.4 million in annual salaries. In this instance the media did its job. Disclosure not only gave Americans the facts to form their own conclusions but also dispelled the hearsay that all too often runs rampant in politics. As common as this is at the federal level, it is perhaps even more so on the local level. It is for this reason that I want to publicly commend our Essex County Board of Supervisors for tackling the sensitive issue of its

own hiring practices by forming an ethics committee subject to public scrutiny. Have there been instances in which relatives have received preferential treatment in obtaining a job at the county? Personally, I don’t believe so. I know many hard working county employees I’d be proud to work alongside in the private sector. I honestly don’t believe anyone was handed a job simply because of their last name. I believe County Manager Dan Palmer when he says — like any private sector employer — that a department head would want to choose the most qualified, hardest working person for the job. After all, you’re only as good as the individuals you surround yourself with. But do I believe the public has a right to know when a department head hires a direct relative or that of a county supervisor? Definitely. Unlike the private sector, county government is answerable to the taxpayer. To make informed decisions about elected officials and the policies they put in place, the public needs to know these facts. More so, they have the right to know. If for nothing else than, as in the case of Obama, to dispel the vicious rumors that propagate when government exists in a vacuum. Good government is open government, and it should be the job of not only the media but the public as a whole to demand

that. Following the article we published a few weeks ago reporting that Sandy Lewis addressed the county board urging full disclosure with the county’s hiring practices, we were criticized on a number of fronts. We were criticized for singling out people. We were criticized for not having the facts straight when the article first broke — for sensationalizing a non-issue in the interest of “selling papers.” (My personal favorite, considering our papers are free.) Valid arguments, although ones I would dispute. The facts in this case were anything but easy to acquire, and they remain not fully disclosed to this day. Nevertheless, Lewis and the subsequent media coverage at least started a dialogue — one that has led to greater transparency. Call it the journalist in me — but I can’t see the downside to that.

Tabs From page 1 Hospital in Burlington, Vt., three times a week to undergo kidney dialysis, among other treatments. Sometimes her care has required overnight stays in Burlington, not the least of which was the 10-day stretch that led to her initial diagnosis. On such occasions, Molly’s parents, Brad and Julie Rascoe, and sister, Emily, have utilized the Ronald McDonald House in Burlington, a nonprofit facility that offers lodging for family members of children receiving medical treatment. “When Molly was in the hospital for those 10 days, we stayed over there,” recalled Brad, noting how friendly volunteers there helped prepare meals and create a welcoming atmosphere. “They just sit at the table and chat with you,” he added. “They’ll do anything for you; you just ask them and they’ll help you out.” With the help of sponsors and donations, the Ronald McDonald House in Burlington can offer one of its 11 rooms to families at just $10 a night in a location that’s convenient to both the hospital and pharmacy. When news about the Ronald McDonald House aiding the Rascoes reached friends and co-workers, it inspired an effort to show support in a simple, yet meaningful way. Staff at Elizabethtown-Lewis Central School, where Julie is employed as a Special Education teacher, learned of how a school in nearby Saranac Lake had delivered 300 pounds of aluminum pull tabs to the Ronald McDonald House as a fundraiser for the facility. “It was like, if they can do it, so can we,” said Sheila Kapper, the school nurse at ELCS who has been coordinating collection efforts there. The aluminum tabs can be found on a wide variety of cans; those that contain soda, soup, dog food, beans, tuna, and many other products. Ronald McDonald House collects the tabs from donators and sells them in bulk for funds to aid their operations. Each pound of aluminum can translate to between 60 cents and $1.30, depending on the market price of aluminum. “Anybody, no matter what their means are, can be a contributor,” said Kapper. “Anybody can do it.” “All you need to do is drop it off here at the school and we’ll take care of the rest,” she added. Pull tab collections began in November and soon expanded to Westport Central School where Brad works as athletic director. Administrators at CV-TEC in Mineville and Franklin-Essex-Hamilton BOCES joined the effort, putting the collection well on its way to the 300-pound goal. In late December, Brad delivered the first donation from the four sites; about 226 pounds of aluminum tabs. Since then, donations have continued to pour in.


“I also have 40 pounds at home,” he said, “so we’re probably looking at close to 300.” Despite approaching its original goal, the collection effort shows no signs of slowing down. “We’re going to continue to do it for the rest of the school year,” said Kapper, emulating similar intentions expressed by the other schools involved. The pull tabs only go to benefit the Ronald McDonald House, but for the Rascoes, it’s one more example of how the community cares about their family. “It really means a lot to us; just knowing that people are thinking about us,” said Julie. “We’re just very appreciative of how people have helped to make the best of the situation.”

Douglas From page 1 the alleged acts of defendants supporting Mr. Douglas’ claim, which we intend to prove in a court of law.” Norfolk has gained access to numerous emails and correspondences from Council board members to APA commissioners and staff. These memos urge the recipients to take action against Douglas.

Sheehan said the Council is considering filing a counter-suit against Douglas and his attorney. Norfolk countered that the credibility question will be decided in a court of law. “Any issues of credibility of Mr. Douglas or the defendants named in the lawsuit, including members of the Adirondack Council, will be addressed in court through the normal litigation process,” Norfolk said.

ADK to host birdwatching outing WESTPORT — The Adirondack Mountain Club will host a program entitled Winter Visitors: an Introduction to Birding in Winter on Feb. 15. Every winter, birds from the arctic and other regions of Canada move “down south” to the North Country to spend part of or all of the winter. During this trip to the open farmlands of the Champlain Valley and the waters of Lake Champlain itself, join the search for Horned Grebes, Golden Eyes, Buffleheads, Rough Legged Hawks, Bonaparte and Iceland Gulls, Snow Buntings, Horned Larks, Bohemian Waxwings, and many more species. Sign up and learn how and where to find winter visitors during the cold season. This program will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Leave from the ADK Loj in Lake Placid at 8

a.m. or meet at the boat launch in Westport. Directions and other pertinent information will be sent out to participants. All participants must pre-register by calling 523-3441. The cost is $30 for members/$35 non-members with a maximum of 16 participants. The Adirondack Mountain Club, founded in 1922, is a nonprofit membership organization dedicated to protecting the New York State Forest Preserve and other wild lands and waters through conservation and advocacy, environmental education and responsible recreation. For more information about our programs, directions or questions about membership, contact ADK North Country office in Lake Placid at 523-3441 or visit


Stewart said the one ferry operating at Crown Point carried about 1,700 cars in its first day of operation Feb. 1, including many Addison County, Vt., shoppers making their way to the Ticonderoga Wal-Mart. It takes only three minutes for the ferry to make its journey between ferry docks at Crown Point, but with so many riders relying on its service, LCT recognized a need for a second ferry there. “If the one boat by itself went offline, we would be in a pickle,” Stewart said. The Essex-Charlotte ferry has traditionally carried only 100 cars per day during the winter months. However, ridership on the ferry has seen a considerable increase since the bridge’s closing in October. Stewart admitted the ferry’s closing will be a tough change for its riders. “The folks there are hoping for an early spring,” said Stewart. “As soon as the lake is clear of ice, the Adirondack will be moved to the Essex-Charlotte crossing.” Built in 1913, the Adirondack has a riveted hull that is not suitable for operation in ice conditions. It has traditionally served the Port Kent-Burlington crossing, which has always closed from mid-October through May. Another ferry, the Gov. George D. Aiken, is currently being refitted with two new engines. Plans are for it to resume at the EssexCharlotte crossing later in the spring as well.

From page 1 the skippers are saying that this is a good time to move the boats.” Prior to the closing, two ferries were in operation at the Essex-Charlotte crossing. Both will now be reassigned to crossings that anticipate higher volumes of traffic. One ferry, the Plattsburgh, had been borrowed from the Plattsburgh-Grand Isle crossing, which normally runs three ferries year-round. With that service temporarily cut to two ferries since Jan. 14, Stewart said customers at the northernmost crossing have experienced much longer wait times. Another ferry, the Grand Isle, traditionally operates at the Essex-Charlotte crossing year-round, but will be reassigned to the temporary crossing at Crown Point, which is already getting plenty of use in its first days of service. “Relocating the vessels at this time allows us to restore the Grand Isle crossing back to its normal operating schedule, and ensures that there is duplication of service at Crown Point during heavy ice conditions,” said Stewart in a press release. Lake Champlain Transportation has five ferries that can operate in icy conditions. Canal passageways have been closed for the winter, making it unfeasible to add any new ferries to the fleet.

Wells Memorial welcomes Longmire exhibit UPPER JAY — From now until April 1, Wells Memorial Library is exhibiting photographs from “Keeping Time in Sag Harbor” by Stephen Longmire, a resident of Upper Jay. A combination of photographs and text, the book describes the transformation of a former-whaling-port-turned-summer-resort on eastern Long Island during the recent real estate boom, as many of its historic houses were converted into second homes. The book commemorated Sag Harbor ’s 300th anniversary in 2007. Larger versions of this show were seen at New York’s South Street Seaport Museum in 2008 and at the Nantucket Historical Association in 2009. This installation includes 15 images. On Sunday, Feb. 14 from 2-4 p.m., the author will talk about his work and show photographs from his forthcoming book, “Life and Death on the Prairie.” This portrait of one of the last prairies in Iowa, a cemetery in continuous use since the 1830s, will be out next fall from the Center for American Places and University of Chicago Press, the publishers of Keeping Time in Sag Harbor. Photographs from the new book will be exhibited at Grinnell College in the fall. Stephen Longmire’s photographs have been hung in galleries and museums across the country, from Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Photography to the Guild Hall in East Hampton, New York. They are in the collections of the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, and the National Park Service. He has written on photographic art for many publications, including Afterimage and The Chicago Reader, and taught the history and practice of photography at Georgetown University and Columbia College Chicago. He is planning a book on the built environments of the Adirondack Park, with support from Adirondack Architectural Heritage. For more information, contact Karen Rappaport at the Wells Memorial Library by calling 946-2644. The Wells Memorial Library is open Tuesday through Thursday from 12-5 p.m. and Saturday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Deer take numbers to be released this month


tate environmental officials should be releasing deer harvest figures for 2009 any day now, but indications are that northern zone totals could be down by as much as 20 percent. DEC Wildlife Biologist Ed Reed said he’s been told by Albany staff to expect deer take results “in early February.” If the indications ring true, the overall northern zone take could be in the neighborhood of 27,000-29,000 deer, down from 33,938 in 2008 and 31,797 in 2007. Nevertheless, the DEC believes statewide totals will remain fairly flat from 2008, or slightly below the 222,979 deer taken during the 2008 season. That compares to 219,141 taken in 2007, and 189,108 in 2006. The highest total came in 2002 when hunters took 308,216 deer, 128,292 of which were bucks. Reed attributed the poor northern zone take to difficult weather conditions, saying the deer simply weren’t moving as much during daylight hours. From my personal experience, that certainly was the case, although some areas that got hit hardest by harsh conditions last winter seemed to have less deer this season than usual. Near my home in Westport, however, the deer are out in force. I counted 37 merrily feeding away in one field a few evenings ago. It doesn’t appear as if last winter had much of an affect on the herd there.

AuSable Valley cagers get caught in Red Storm By Matt Bosley CLINTONVILLE — A late comeback attempt was not enough to overcome an early deficit Jan. 29 as the Patriots fell to Saranac Lake 54-52 in CVAC boys basketball. Senior standout Connor Gach returned from injury just in time to lead the Red Storm with a 20-point, nine rebound performance against AuSable Valley. Saranac Lake got things going early with a 8-2 run behind a tough zone defense that stymied the Patriots. They went on to lead 26-15 at the half, including 10 first-half points by C.J. Stewart, who finished with 14. “We just never got into a rythym in the first half,” said AuSable Valley head coach Jamie Douglass, noting how his team missed 14 shots and went 4-for-9 from the line before intermission. “We came out and dug ourselves a hole.” The Patriots came out strong in the second half, however, starting with a 10-2 run of their own. Brody Douglas scored 11 of his 16 points in the second half. Seven points in the last seven minutes from Austin Case, along with a 3-pointer from Jordan Coolidge helped AuSable Valley cut the lead to three with 26 seconds to play, but Saranac Lake held off the Patriots for the win. Coolidge and Joe Lincoln each chipped in 10 for the Patriots, with Lincoln and Douglass each grabbing seven rebounds. Zach Buckley brought down nine rebounds for Saranac Lake.

Scores for the week Silver Bullet

Boys Basketball

Meanwhile, Dick Johndrow, AKA “Silver Bullet,” sent me a photo of a massive 20-pointer he scored for a 41year-old hunter from Long Island. It is pictured above. Johndrow serves as measurer chairman for the New York State Big Buck Club. The 20-pointer, taken with a bow on Oct. 26, 2009 by Bjorn Holubar, scored a net Boone & Crockett 202 and 5/8 inches, making it the number two non-typical buck killed with a bow in the state. The deer weighed 210 pounds, had 10 non-typical points including a unique drop tine and had an inside spread of 20 and 3/8 inches. The deer was dropped at 43 yards with a Bowtech Mighty Mite Bow and a 100-grain Muzzy broadhead. Bjorn, according to Johndrow, hunted a total of 60 days last fall.
