McGahay joins Board of Elections Office for Aging talk about role By Keith Lobdell ELIZABETHTOWN — The new Republican Commissioner for the Essex County Board of Elections was reintroduced to the Board of Supervisors Feb. 7. Allison McGahay, who had recently resigned her position as an Assistant District Attorney with the for Essex County Board of Elections county personal reaRepublican Commissioner Allison McGahay. Photo by Keith Lobdell sons, was introduced as the new commissioner after being approved by members of the Board of Supervisors. “It is great to be able to come back to work for Essex County after a five-week leave,” McGahay said. “When this position became vacant, it seemed like a perfect fit. I really

Radios Continued from page 1 programming would be covered by the county. “We told the fire departments that they would be responsible for that cost for now,” Jaquish said. Preston disagreed. “It really makes no sense to try and put a new system in place and not have the radios installed,” he said. “There are some districts out there that in no way will be able to afford this and it would be crazy to have a new system with half of the departments not being able to use it.” Preston and County Manager Daniel Palmer also debated the issue, with Palmer saying it was always the understanding that

do hope to make you happy with the Board of Elections.” Prior to working in Essex County, McGahay has served with the New York State Board of Elections as a deputy director and as the lead attorney. Newcomb Supervisor George Canon moved her appointment, which was approved unanimously. “I want to thank Supervisor Canon, Ron Jackson and Win Belanger for their support at the Republican meeting and again here today,” McGahay said. “It is a very important election year this year because it is local. Everything has to do with us this year.” McGahay replaces former Republican Commissioner Derinda Sherman, who was not re-appointed by the county Republican Committee earlier this year. Along with approving a new commissioner, the board also expressed their displeasure with the proposed early voting bills currently before the state Senate and Assembly. Board members voted to send a letter against the proposed law to the state. “If this is passed, it is an unfunded mandate that would cost us over $100,000 a year,” Chesterfield Supervisor Gerald Morrow said.

the departments would take care of the instillation costs, which could range from $400-700. Preston said he was always thought the county would pick that bill up. “If it is going to be $700 a pop to have these installed and then programmed, that is going to come as a shock for each of the smaller departments,” Preston said. Other supervisors agreed with Preston. “From the start, I thought we were paying for all of the mobiles and all of the portables would be on the departments,” Chesterfield Supervisor Gerald Morrow said. “It is a burden particularly on the smaller departments and what may end up happening is that the radios will be sitting there unused because they cannot afford to pay for them,” added Minerva Supervisor Sue Montgomery Corey.

By Keith Lobdell ELIZABETHTOWN — The Essex County Department for the Aging wants residents and supervisors to know what they do. Director Patty Bashaw told members of the Human Services Committee Feb. 11 that she was preparing to go to towns and senior organizations to talk about the office and their role in the county. “We want to try to get out to the town boards and some of the community groups,“ Bashaw said. “Demographics of our county from the census show that there is a significant increase in the aging population in our county that will continue through 2040. Most of us will not be here for that, but we have to be planning for it.” Bashaw also talked about the Stock Our Shelves program, which is run for those who may not need Meals On Wheels but assistance to get groceries. “It is for people who can’t get out to the store or can’t afford to get out to the store who we will bring them a bag of groceries for the week and a menu of how to prepare the items,“ Bashaw said. “Our SOS program has definitely gone up because costs are going up

“We could get into a situation where we have this system and half the towns can't afford to do it and they are waiting to raise funds through a bake sale,” Elizabethtown Supervisor Margaret Bartley said. “We will have people that can only use the old system and they will no longer be able to use it and they will be back to cell phone and pagers.” Westport Supervisor Daniel Connell offered a resolution to request bids for the cost of instillation and programming, saying that they should find out the price and then decide how to proceed. Board of Supervisors chair Randy Douglas agreed. “I think we should put it out there just to see what the cost is,” he said. Paler said that so far, the county has received $7.4 million in funding through state

and people are struggling.” Bashaw added that one of her biggest concerns is the lack of programs for “pre-seniors.” “We get a lot of calls from people 55 and older who are starting to have some significant health problems,” Bashaw said. “If the have Medicaid, that is fine, but there is not really a program out there for those folks. It would be nice if the county would start thinking about a program to address those needs.” Also during the Human Services meeting, transportation director Nancy Dougal gave the bus traffic report for the month and 2012. Dougal said that there were 6,556 public transit rides in the month of January, which included the Whiteface Shuttle. For 2012, the department had 97,280 total rides and collected $10,659 above their estimated revenue total. The department also brought in $25,000 in advertising revenue and currently has $2,000 in ad revenue for 2013. Also at the meeting, Social Services Director John O’Neill received preliminary approval to hire a part-time security officer to replace a person retiring. For more on the Human Services Committee and news from Essex County, visit and federal grants as well as donations from the New York State Police and NYSEG. “Given our current costs, that will bring us below the $10 million in bonding that four years ago we were given approval to spend,” he said. Palmer added that the county could get more up front revenue if they were to sell the Terry Mountain property. “I do not think that we belong in the tower business in terms of keeping them up and maintenance,” he said. “You do lose the money from rental fees, but I think we do not want to be in the business.” “It has been a burden on our office to maintain the site,” Jaquish said. “It has been like running a small business just to maintain the site.”

he NCSPCA would like to inform you that we have LOTS of new dogs and puppies at our shelter! We recently took in 10 dogs from another shelter, who really needed the extra help. The new dogs include six adorable 3month-old lab/husky puppies, two 6month-old lab/boxer mixes, and two 8month-old all-American mutts They are all super sweet, and the puppies are out-ofthis-world CUTE! We are also gearing up for the grand opening of our new shelter in March. Check out our website,, or our Facebook page to see pictures of our progress and updates. We are so excited to be able to offer our animals this state-ofthe-art facility, which includes isolation areas for sick animals, a special "get-acquainted" adoption area, walking trails, and a large play yard for our furry friends! Our featured pet this week is Blossom, a colorful Domestic Shorthair/mix who has tabby, calico, and tortoiseshell markings. Despite her wild colors, Blossom is a calm and quiet girl who enjoys observing everything that is going around her, preferably from a comfortable pillow or perched on a windowsill. Blossom loves to be petted

and is quick to reward you with a rumbling purr. She is about two years old and is hoping to find a home where she can be queen of all she surveys- she enjoys the company of other cats, and wouldn't mind a polite dog to live with, as long as he understands who is in charge! If you are seeking an affectionate adult cat with a gentle personality, Blossom is the feline for you.

ark your calendars for Saturday, Feb. 16, for a special concert at the Essex Inn with a trio of harmony specialists featuring American Idol finalist and Plattsburgh resident Ben Bright, Don Vicaro and our very own Donna Lou Sonnett. They'll be playing favorite songs from the likes of the Everly Brothers, James Taylor and Elvis, and they’ll pay a special tribute to musical parodist and Whallonsburg native Weird Al Yankovic. There's no cover charge, dancing and singing along are encouraged and it all starts at 8 p.m. On Saturday night the film society will present another fine movie called “Robot and Frank.” This one’s about an elderly jewel thief who is given an intelligent robot for companionship. The old man realizes the robot would make an ideal accomplice to restart his career as a burglar and teaches it to pick locks. Then comical complications arise. The movie starts at 7:30 p.m. at the Whallonsburg Grange. Also at the Grange, the series on American agriculture rolls on each Tuesday evening at 7:30 p.m. The next talk will be about the settlement of the western US, the

introduction of mechanization and commodity crop production. The Bread and Puppet theater troupe will be performing at the Grange on Friday, Feb. 15, at 7 p.m. This is a great opportunity to see the famous giant puppets as they satirize and comment on society. CATS, the trail blazers, are working on a new path to connect Westport and Essex. If you would like to help hack out a trail, be at Dogwood Bakery in Wadhams this Saturday at 12:30 p.m. Although it’s way too early to start seeds for garden transplants, it is a great time to get your seed order together. Our dining room table is awash in catalogs which offer all sorts of seemingly excellent varieties, but clearly some have to be better than others. Take sweet corn, for example. The catalogs use flattering adjectives when describing flavor, but don’t actually tell you the best ones to plant. This year I picked out two varieties because they’re named after real places, Augusta and Montauk. I’ve also tried varieties with names based in music, like Harmony and Symphony, which were pretty good. The local raccoons love all of them.

ell we have now had our first real SNOW day this past week with several cancellations and most people staying home. I truly like to see the snow covered ground and we are so grateful to our great Highway Department for their great work of keeping our roads open. Many events were scheduled tor this weekend and most of them on Saturday and Sunday still went on as planned. There were two big birthday parties on Saturday, one for Edna Coonrod and the other for Liz Mero, hope you all had a great time. I was able to attend the Library Chocolate tasting on Sunday, wow they had a big assortment of wonderful chocolate desserts to try. The weather did not cancel many of the other events that took place after the Friday storm. I was very impressed with the recent newsletter from the Mountain Lake Services. This is a great resource and they truly make us a better community for being here. One of the clients Gary Crowningshield and his care giver attended the chocolate tasting event and he was really enjoying himself, great to see him, so glad they can get out and attend local events. Anyone interested in Yoga lessons they

are being offered at the Willsboro Methosdist Church on Monday's Feb. 4 to March 4 between 5 and 6:30 p.m. You are advisded to wear loose clothing, bring your yoga mat or a blanket; for more information call 963-7928 (Tony D'Angelo). Plans are moving ahead for the building of the history kiosk that will display in pictures the history highlights of our community. This will be located on the narrow strip of land just around from the bridge and across from the Library. This should be of interest to our visitors. This is a Heritage Project under a special gift of funds. Our sympathy to the family and friend of June Lincoln as she passed away this past week after a long illness; as her daughters do not live in the area, her service will be held at a later date. June truly was a great community volunteer and we have missed her warm smile and always offering her time. She truly loved her flowers and shared them many times within the community. Happy Birthday to: Patty Aubin Feb. 8, Nancy Huestis Feb. 18, Krestin Hotaling Feb. 18, Jean Leonessa Feb. 18, Andy Aubin Feb. 19. Happy Anniversary to Walt & Linda Morgan Feb. 14, Sherry & Junior Mitchell Feb. 14.

have just learned that we have a newly founded North Country Honor Flight here in Keeseville which services Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties. Meetings are held at the Keeseville Fire Station and the next meeting is Wednesday, Feb. 13, at 6 p.m. Four flights are scheduled this year already with the first planned for May 18. Honor Flights are a wonderful tribute to our World War II Veterans as it gives them a chance to fly to Washington to witness the Memorial at no charge to them. All World War II Vets qualify. The North Country Honor Flight is in the need of volunteers, individual and corporate donations, and organizations that would like to hold fundraisers to benefit the Honor Flight. The group plans on showing the film Honor Flight at Hawkins Hall of Plattsburgh State sometime in the future, and I will certainly provide more information on this as I learn it. Any interested parties are encouraged to contact Danny Kaifetz, Director of the North

Country Honor Flight, 1 Derek Drive, Keeseville NY, 12901, by phone at 834-9901 or email at The Flight also has a Facebook page as well. Hopefully, many local vets will be able to take advantage of this wonderful tribute to their service, and of course, many thanks to Danny and the rest of the organization for providing this tribute. I received a great email from the Hohns that with the Lake being frozen the eagles are now out gracing us with their spectacular beauty, at least over in Port Douglas as they saw six in one day and their neighbors watched eight, including adults and juveniles. I ride the CCPT bus every morning to work and love starting my day with the sighting of many ducks and loons on the Lake. The eagles add an amazing majesty to an already stunning vista. Again, I can’t imagine living anywhere else. Stay well and enjoy the natural beauty of our home! Namaste’


estport Hose Company #1 will hold its Annual Spring Car Wash on all five Saturdays in March at the Firehouse from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tickets are $5 per wash, but you can buy a book of five tickets for only $20 ahead of time from the Town Clerk. They make a great gift. And golfers, now’s the time to get in on the Westport Fireman’s Golf Tournament, to be held Saturday, June 1 at the Westport Country Club. Teams of four will play from two start times of 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. To sign your team up, call Jim Forcier at 962-4420 before May 24. They’re also looking for hole sponsors. If you’re interested in sponsoring a hole, drop me an email and I’ll put you in touch. From the folks at CATS: “Champlain Area Trails invites volunteers to help make a new trail on Saturday afternoon, February 16 from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. The “Farm and Forest Trail” will link Wadhams to the Bobcat Trail. We will meet in Wadhams at the Dogwood Bread Company. We invite volunteers of all ages to “clear trail” which is cutting tree branches and

removing fallen logs so people can soon hike and ski on the trail. Making trails provides immediate satisfaction and a real sense of accomplishment because you see the trail develop before your eyes.  If people can only be there for part of the project, that is fine. This trail will eventually extend to Whallonsburg and be an important link in the system of trails connecting Westport to Essex. Please bring gloves, loppers, and hand saws. CATS will also provide tools. For more details, call 962-2287.” Also, music educator extraordinaire Rose Chancler writes that she “would like to announce the addition of a new piano and voice teacher at Westport's Hamilton Hall. Her name is Wanda Haby, and she is an accomplished pianist and vocalist who will be teaching all ages on Saturday afternoons beginning at noon.” Currently president of the Clinton County Piano Teacher's Association, Wanda sings the national anthem for the San Antonio Spurs.

A date worth remembering Military sacrifices should be honored every day


here are dates with obvious significance. Feb. 19 is not one of them, but maybe it should be.

Feb. 19, 1945, U.S. Marines landed on the Japanese island of Iwo Jima. The small island, about 10 square miles, was vital to an anticipated American invasion of Japan that would end World War II. When U.S. Marines finally secured the island on March 16, they had 6,891 dead and more than 18,000 wounded. The casualty rate among Marines on Iwo Jima was a staggering 22 percent. All but 212 of the 22,000 Japanese defenders on the island died. Ray Tolar of Ticonderoga remembers Feb. 19. A Marine, he was there in 1945 and has made a point of marking the anniversary ever since. “On Memorial Day we raise the flag and salute,” Tolar said. “But we should do more. We should remember the sacrifices of Americans every day. “Mark Feb. 19 on your calendar and, if you will, give thought to this meager reminder,” he said. “A degree of sorrow will be felt in your heart as well as a tremendous sense of pride for being an American and what it stands for. Semper Fi. “For me this is a cause,” Tolar said. “It’s important to remember what freedom costs, to remember those who have died.” After three days of fighting Marines captured Mount Suribachi, the island’s highest point. There Marines raised an American flag, a moment that became famous thanks to a photo shown around the world. Many assumed the flag raising was a symbol of victory. It was really just the start. That was 68 years ago. In the years since American men and women have continued to sacrifice. We received a painful reminder of those sacrifices when Staff Sgt. Venne, age 29, of Port Henry was killed in Paktiya Province, Afghanistan, last November. Venne and others made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation. Other sacrifices are less apparent. Tom Bain of Putnam, who plans to retire from active Army service this June after 23 years, recently noted the sacrifices of his family. “The service to my country is not a solo event,” he said. “I have to give great credit to my wife of 20 years, Christine, and my children, Tommy and Caitlin. Without their support, a career in the military would not have been possible. I am eternally grateful for the support they gave me throughout the years and am sorry for the sacrifices and challenges they faced in my many absences.” A chief warrant officer, Bain has served around the world as a helicopter pilot. There are thousands of men and women like him — and families like his — serving our nation while asking so little in return. So, Feb. 19 let’s honor Ray Tolar ’s request. Let’s take a moment to think about the men, women and families, past and present, who have demonstrated the greatest ideal of our nation — the willingness to sacrifice for others. —Denton Publications Editorial Board

Stand up and speak out


am fortunate to be able to have and use this venue to voice my concerns about the direction of our country. Each week I hear from many of you. At times, I must admit I’m a little embarrassed by the acknowledgements and the degree of praise I receive. I think readers recognize I’m writing from the heart. It’s not so much how I put the words on paper, but perhaps the passion and belief behind what I try to convey. Like many of you, I’m concerned about the direction of our country, the attitude of our people and the things we see that are clearly not moving the nation in a positive direction. My goal here is to voice concern from a position that I hope the majority can agree needs attention. I also hope to encourage our leaders to put aside their party affiliation and hidden agendas designed to further divide the nation and stonewall needed legislation. I don’t consider myself a radical, a revolutionary or someone who sees a conspiracy behind every tree. There are simply subjects that I don’t see appearing in the national media, however, that should be covered and I’m concerned why they are ignored. I make these points because it reflects what I hear from many of you when you contact me. One of my concerns when I began writing this column a couple years ago was the fear of offending some readers or advertisers who ultimately pay the way for this free newspaper. I’m surprised at the number of you who express concern about speaking out and expressing their views either in letters to the editor, guest commentaries or comments on the web site. Fear of retribution is a major concern for many of you. The concern that in this land of free speech many have been silenced by fear, not of what others will think, but more so by what others may do, is an alarming trend. Respectful disagreement has taken a back seat in this day and age. One can easily see how outspoken individuals can be labeled “crackpots” or “nut cases” and the media and our politicians should take the blame for making citizens fearful about speaking out. Think for a moment, if you were given an opportunity to speak out respectfully about your primary concerns for the key issues facing this na-


tion and you had the opportunity to do so less than 5 feet from the president, vice president, the first lady and many of our elected officials. I encourage you to watch the 27-minute

Thoughts from Behind the Pressline

video of Dr. Benjamin Carson, a John Hopkins pediatric neurosurgeon who dug his way out of the poorest of situations when he was young and gave a speech last week at the National Prayer Breakfast. Carson offered his concerns for the nation on subjects like the deficit, education, taxation, political correctness, partisan bickering and God all while the nation’s leaders looked on. The video can be viewed on YouTube at In case you don’t have access to a computer, here is one of Carson’s many points: CARSON: “What we need to do is come up with something simple. And when I pick up my Bible, you know what I see? I see the fairest individual in the universe, God, and he's given us a system. It's called a tithe. We don't necessarily have to do 10 percent but it's the principle. He didn't say if your crops fail, don't give me any tithe or if you have a bumper crop, give me triple tithe. So there must be something inherently fair about proportionality. You make $10 billion, you put in a billion. You make $10 you put in one. Of course you've got to get rid of the loopholes. Some people say, 'Well that's not fair because it doesn't hurt the guy who made $10 billion as much as the guy who made 10.' Where does it say you've got to hurt the guy? He just put a billion dollars in the pot. We don't need to hurt him. It's that kind of thinking that has resulted in 602 banks in the Cayman Islands. That money needs to be back here building our infrastructure and creating jobs.”

Embarrassed by speech

College Debt Increasing

To the Valley News: I have lived in New York all my life. Have always resented how New York City has always dictated how all the rest of us have to live. When I heard clips of Cuomo’s speech I was embarrassed for him. Knowing that here is our governor of the whole state and to hear this, unreal. To hear him talk he made me feel like criminal because I exercise the second amendment. I will repeat, as a man, as a person and knowing this person represents me I am embarrassed to be from New York. Raymond Carver Clintonville

American college students have collectively accumulated a whopping $530 billion dollars in college debt. This staggering figure is up 120 percent in the past decade. The average amount of college debt upon graduating or leaving college is just over $27,253. At an average interest rate of 7 percent a $10,000 college loan paid off over ten years ends up costing KidsByCount Scot Hurlburt over $17,000 or nearly doubles the initial loan. Students that carry the average loan of $27,253 will also end up paying substantially more than the initial loan. These dramatic changes in college debt have significant implications for the larger economy. Additional bad news is that nearly half of all college grads are working jobs that do not require a college degree. About 4 percent of college grads in 2011 were working jobs that did not require a college degree and 38 percent were working jobs that didn’t require a high school diploma according to the Center for College Affordability and Productivity. In 1970 less than 1 percent of Taxi drivers or Firefighters had college degrees now just over 15 percent have college degrees. As the economy continues to stagnate, students that have borrowed money are much more likely to default on their loans than students from a decade ago. The student loan delinquency rate is 15.1 percent up from 12.4 percent in 2007 according to the Fair Isaac Corporation which publishes consumer credit scores. The increasing loan delinquency rate comes as student loan debt has increased to $27,253 up 58 percent from 2005. By contrast, credit-card and car loan debt balances declined during the same time period. Defaulting on a student loan has consequences including a downgrading of an individual’s credit rating which in turn will make purchasing more difficult. This in turn has implications for the national economy. There are other consequences for defaulting on a college loan as well. Students defaulting on their loans cannot file for bankruptcy. After 270 days of no payment, a student will be considered in default on their college loans. After several weeks creditors will be calling at least four times and four written notices will also be sent. Then, a final demand letter will be sent informing the student that they must pay their loan immediately or a default claim will be filed on the loans. After a the default claim is filed the student will receive a stern or even unpleasant telephone call and if a repayment negotiation is not successful within 60 days, the student will be reported to the National Credit Bureau. Once done, the students credit will be badly damaged making them ineligible for credit cards, mortgages or car loans. A student’s tax refund can be withheld and used for payment. If the student has a salary part of their salary can be withheld and used for payment. The student may be summoned to court and sued for the entire amount. The student may be required to repay the debt under an income contingent repayment plan and thus repay more than the original principal and interest on the loan. The student will be ineligible for state or federal student aid until satisfactory arrangements for repayment have been made. Students may become ineligible for deferments and students may not be able to renew professional licenses. If a student encounters financial difficulties, contact the lender right away. Consider applying for a deferment or forbearance on loans. It may be possible to change payments to a graduated repayment schedule or income contingent repayment plan. Even with all the risk, college students do enjoy an unemployment rate of 4.5 percent compared to 9.7 percent for non-college graduates. College graduates also make more money across time. An additional issue to factor in is the large number of students whose parents are taking out college loans for their children. Money that previously would have been put away for retirement is instead being utilized to pay student college debts. Many adults are working longer as a result and they are further reducing the job market as more older workers are working even longer to pay college debt for their children while many new college grads are waiting on the sidelines. Remember, all kids count. Reach the writer at

This year we had nearly 60 campaign volunteers who actively solicited their friends and neighbors in support of the Foundation. Their commitment and each donor ’s gift have been critical to the success of our campaign and our programs. It is because of this generous support that we can provide these and many other vital health and wellness programs. Thank you to everyone who supported the Foundation of CVPH in 2012. Whether through the annual campaign, a special event or other donation, you are helping people, funding programs, enhancing care and touching lives. Gerard “Jerry” Kelly 2012 Annual Campaign Chair

To the Valley News: It is with great enthusiasm and appreciation that I announce the success of this year ’s annual campaign for the Foundation of CVPH Medical Center. This year, our campaign fundraising goal reached $250,000, a new record for the Foundation. This brought the total raised for the year to just over $700,000. Through the support of our donors, we touch thousands of lives throughout the North Country. In 2012, donations have been used to: •Fund programs that improve the health of our community such as funding for the library system to purchase relevant health materials and sponsoring a discussion on how traumatic situations affect children; •Provide patient care program and equipment support for the Medical Center; •Assist 60 families with travel expenses for specialized care out of the area; •Educate healthcare professionals to enhance patient care; •Support the CVPH diabetes self management class which taught 47 people how to better control their health; •Reach 1,000 people who attended health

To the Valley News: Recently, while exploring the internet, I stumbled across an article in the Washington Post that dealt with ”What makes America’s gun culture totally unique in the world.” This in turn led me to a database compiled by the Guardian titled, “Gun Homicides and Gun Ownership Listed by Country.” It is a list of 178 countries which includes some very interesting and informative information about civilian firearms ownership and numbers of firearm related homicides. The United States of course is at the top of the world’s civilian gun ownership list by far. In fact while our population makes up only 5 percent of the world’s population we own somewhere between 35-50 percent of the worlds civilian guns. ( In this country there, currently, are around 270 million guns held privately. This equates to 88.8 guns owned per 100 people. Our homicide by firearm rate per 100,000 people comes in at 2.97. From here, it all depends upon how you choose to interpret the data. If I were oriented toward more stringent gun control I would point out that in a number of cases there is a direct correlation between the number of firearms privately owned and homicide rate. I would point to our neighbor Canada where, there are only 30.8 firearms per 100 people and a homicide by firearms (HBF) rate of only 0.51 HBF per 100,000 people. In addition I would show Australia with a 15 guns/100people and a HBF of only 0.14. I could point out Japan with a 0.6 firearms/100 people and an HBF rate of only 0.01. I could in fact go on and on pointing out that those countries with fewer guns and most likely stricter gun

control laws do in fact have lower rates of firearm related deaths. Of course when you truly examine the numbers we see that this issue is in fact far more complicated than, where our personal bias tends to fall. If on the other hand I wanted to point outthat gun control” was a fallacy then I would look at the number 3 country for civilian gun ownership, Switzerland. Switzerland has a gun ownership level of 45.7 guns per 100 people with a HBF rate of only 0.77. Number 4, Finland comes in at 45.3 guns per 100 people and a HBF rate of only 0.45. Looking at these numbers it would seem that something else is going on in these countries and perhaps it would be wise for us to take a look at exactly what it is that they are doing other than simply imposing more stringent gun laws upon our population. All of the above is however completely meaningless rhetoric and useless banter to the parents who lost their children at Sandy Hook Elementary and to the friends and relatives of the more than 30,000 people each year for the past ten years who have been victims of gun violence. I am a gun owner and hunting, protecting our homes and families and serving our country has been part of our family heritage in America for well over 350 years. We are missing the point completely, however, and getting sidetracked into an anachronistic obsession that makes us look crazy people in the eyes of the world. It’s not about the right of the individual to bear arms. Our citizens are dying from the misuse of firearms and rather than letting our thoughts be driven by the propaganda of power hungry politicians or special interest groups with questionable motives, we should be solving this problem the way other countries not so blinded by their own myopic needs are doing at this very moment. Rather than trying to arm teachers, janitors, administrators and security guards with deadly weapons which seems to me like fighting fire with gasoline, we need to start installing “biometric facial recognition security systems” in our schools and work places the way the rest of the civilized world is doing. We need to reach out to other countries in order to learn how they have been able to hold their Homicide by Firearms rates down. We also need to interact with one another in a civil manner over an issue that is in fact highly personal and emotional in order to come up with gun control laws that really work. This is what the internet and its vast universe of information and networking capabilities should be used for, and not for becoming enfeebled by a continual barrage of numbers and information that leads to the oppositional interpretations that keep us all in a mass consciousness paralytic coma; while the senseless shootings continue.

ELIZABETHTOWN — The Wooden Nickel will be holding it’s 25 anniversary Fish Fry to benefit the Elizabethtown-Lewis Fire Departments on March 3.

Jim Olsen, owner of the Wooden Nickel, will host the annual Fish Fry to raise money for the Elizabethtown and Lewis Fire Departments for the 20th year. Photo by Katherine Clark years ago, people would be here until midnight catching up with their neighbors,” owner Jim Olsen said. “We got a long history and it’s a good community event to do something for our fire departments that work so hard for us, we hope people to come.” The fish fry’s have been arranged for the past 20 years by Olsen. The first five events were arranged by patrons at the bar who did all the work for the events; catching the smelt, cleaning the fish and cooking up the meals for the fry Olsen said. When he and his

wife took over the Wooden Nickel, they started handling the event. “It was going to be dissolved and me and my wife said it’s a good thing we should keep going to support the Elizabethtown and Lewis Fire Departments,” Olsen said. Some things have changed over time. Instead of frying up smelt from Lake Champlain, the menu will have pollock shipped in to serve to the hungry patrons and there are new faces battering the fish. Every year the proceeds are divided between the two

Student leaders talk about school proposals ELIZABETHTOWN — Out of eight recommendations made by the NY Education Reform Commission in a preliminary report released last week, one would have a direct impact on how long students are in classes, both for the day and the year. Members of the commission offered insight on potentially extending the school day and school year for students, using a Harlem Charter School as an example where the school year

runs from just after Labor day in September to the first week in August, instead of the standard last week of June. A pair of Student Council presidents at local high schools weighed in on the matter. “I would like to see some stats from schools that have a longer school year and if the grades have improved,” said Elizabethtown-Lewis senior and Student Council President Tim Clark. “I think that a longer school day and school year can lead to higher education scores, but there may be dropouts, and I do not know what the

teachers’ standpoint would be.” “I would be more for extending the school year then the school day,” Westport senior and Student Council President Rachel Abrahamson said. “I think that the learning potential after 3 p.m. would not be that great because kids would be ready to go, unless there were longer break periods during the day.” Abrahamson agreed that the more time in school could help from an academic standpoint, but could discourage other students. “Attendance could be an issue,” she said.

Patriot athletes earn sectional titles in boys swimming, indoor track Bowling

By Keith Lobdell

The Patriots boys bowling team finished third in the Section VII championships Feb. 11, with Josh Taylor rolling a personal season-high series of 687. Mike McDonald added a 658 series, earning a spot on the Section VII state team, while Ben Coolidge rolled a 613 series and Brandon Ano tied his season high with a 603. For Willsboro, Dakoda Latford rolled a 655 series while Tyler Bridge had games of 200 and 212. In the girls championships, the Willsboro Lady Warriors were led to a fourth place finish as Gabi Yeager rolled a 536 series in earning a spot on the girls state team. Alyson Arnold added a 208 high game.

CLINTONVILLE — Several members of the AuSable Valley Patriots varsity winter sports programs earned Section VII championships over the weekend as the winter sports post season officially began.

Indoor track and field Paul Ford earned a repeat sectional championship as he won the high jump at the Section VII Championships Feb. 9 with a leap of 5 feet, 8 inches in a jumpoff tie breaker. He also finished fourth in the 55-meter hurdles in 8.9 seconds. The 640m relay of Ford, Jacob Ashline, Ridge Perkett and Jonathan LaDieu also had a strong showing as they finished third in 1:25.3, a new best time for this group. For the Lady Patriots Ashlee Estes won the girls high jump title with a leap of 4 feet, 7 inches. Rachel Ford established a personal best in the 1500m run in 5:56.1. Rachel also edged her previous best in the 1000m run in 3:54.2. The state qualifier meet for indoor track takes place Saturday, Feb. 16 starting at 12:30 p.m. at the Plattsburgh State Field House.

More sectionals With sectional champions being crowned in four winter sports events, the stage is set for the top basketball teams in the region to start their quests for a Section VII championship next week, with preliminary and quarterfinal rounds being played over the first week leading towards the semifinal round before championship weekend March 1-2.

swim in college.” For Hank, swimming is a family affair, as he was presented his sectional championships by his father, Mike, who was one of the first sectional swim champions in 1974. His sixth sectional title also keeps him four ahead of little sister, Emily, who captured her first two crowns as an eighth grader during the fall. “I’m sure I’ll have the bragging rights when she gets done,” McCormick joked. “It has really been great to work with her and to see her come from floundering in the pool as a little kid to winning two sectional titles. I am very proud of her.” While McCormick won his titles in relatively easy fashion, junior Gavin Friedrich had a race on his hands in the 500 freestyle from the gun, pacing himself with Plattsburgh High’s Matt Evans. Entering the event, the two swimmers were only separated by .03 seconds when looking at each other ’s personal best times, with Friedrich holding the lead. There was not much change in that gap, as Friedrich out-touched Evans by a eyeblinking .16 second to earn his first sectional title with a time of 5:38.28, making it the fifth straight year and AuSable swimmer had won the 500 free. As soon as I touched the wall, I looked up to my lane on the board and saw the “1” next to my name — I was really excited,” Friedrich said. “It was back Gavin Friedrich out-touched Matt Evans of PHS to win the 500 and forth the entire race and I knew that I would have to give freestyle event.

Dylan Baker represented the Patriots in the sectional finals on the mats at Saranac Feb. 9, but was unable to beat defending sectional champion Ethan Feazelle of Peru at 120 lbs., who scored a takedown win over the top seed to advance to the state tournament in Albany. Kenneth Rivers finished third in the heavyweight division.


Senior Hank McCormick collected his fifth and sixth sectional titles for the Patriots in his home pool Feb. 9, claiming the Section VII championship in the 200 medley with a time of 2:15.04 and the 100 breaststroke with a time of 1:08.81. “You go into the race as a favorite, and you hope that you do not screw it up,” said McCormick, whose personal best time was over one second better than his competition in both events. “Overall, my goal was not as much to get my best time as it was to just win the events.” McCormick said he was pleased to be heading back to states with a solid group of Section VII and X swimmers. “You are swimming with a great group of guys, and it is a big honor to go back to states with them,” McCormick said. “The people on this sectional team know each other really well.” McCormick said that he will use the two weeks between sectionals and states to work on his stroke and endurance. “I will use the next two weeks to fine tune my strokes,” he said. “For me, this is just a chance to prepare more and use it as a stepping stone to next year because I want to

The looming storm


espite recent temperature variations that have kept local thermometers bouncing around like a pogo stick, the winter of 2012-13 has been rather blah. Snow cover has come and gone, and come back again. Snow depths have been adequate for skiing the backcountry and after a short spell of slushy conditions, ice cover has remained pretty consistent. Fortunately, the region was largely spared by the recent winter storm that ravaged the coast of New England, however, there is plenty of time left, in that regard. Prior to the turn of the millennium, the truly severe weather events hit the Adirondack region only about twice a century. A few of those record setting events included The Great Windfall of 1845, The Great Floods of 1858, The Blizzard of 1888, and The Big Blow of 1950. However, the frequency of intense weather events began to accelerate after a crippling blizzard struck the northeast in December of 1964. That event was followed soon after by another big storm that pounded the region in December of 1969. Those initial storms provided a forewarning of a frequency that was soon to follow, and soon in November of 1971, a massive Thanksgiving Snowstorm effectively crippled the entire state. The next monster storm to pound the northeast arrived in February of 1978, and yet another hard storm arrived on February 13,1980. Fortunately, the fierce February storm of 1980 delivered enough of the necessary white stuff for the snowless community of Lake Placid to host competitions during the XIII Winter Olympic Games. In following years, major snowstorms began pummeling the northeast with increased frequency, and a number of record setting foul-weather events occurred over the next decade with blizzards in January 1983, October, 1987 and December 1992. In March of 1993, the first Superstorm arrived, and it was packing powerful, hurricane force winds. Labeled as the ‘Storm of the Century,’ the raging blizzard was responsible for over 30 deaths and left over 2.5 million people without power for weeks.

Healthy Heart Day scheduled at ECH ELIZABETHTOWN — Elizabethtown Community Hospital Auxiliary will be hosting its annual Healthy Heart Day on Tuesday, Feb. 26 from 4 to 6 p.m. This event offers community members the opportunity to take part in a free heart health screening. Participants are able to have a blood pressure check, glucose level testing and cholesterol level check. They will learn easy exercise tips, sample and take home heart-healthy recipes, get important health information, view various exhibits and talk with professionals about taking care of their heart. According to Dr. Rob DeMuro, ensuring heart health is one of the most important things anyone can do. “There are many conditions that lead to heart disease, including high blood pressure and high cholesterol,” he said. “If detected early the conditions are often treatable, lessening the likelihood that heart disease will develop later on. This free screening provides the perfect opportunity to do just that.” Call the hospital for questions or additional information about the event at 873-3003.

ECH Ethics Committee presents lecture series ELIZABETHTOWN — The ethics committee of Elizabethtown Community Hospital is planning to present a trio of information lectures to the public starting Wednesday, Feb. 27. The two other lectures will be held on March 20 and March 27. All three will run from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the ECH board room and will be open to the public. The first, Feb. 27, will be an “Advance Directives” presentation and discussion focused on living wills, health care proxies, powers-of-attorney, Medical Order of Life-Sustaining Treatment (MOLST) forms and other documents to express healthcare wishes. The speaker will be Sandy Burke, Director of Patient Advocacy (ret’d.) at the NYU Medical Center. On March 20, there will be a “Your Financial Health” presentation and discussion focused on financial issues related to planning. Speakers will be Tom LaPage and Justin Hooper, financial advisors with Community Bank. For the final lecture March 27, Heidi Palmer of the Essex County Office for the Aging will present, “Community Resources for Aging Family Members,” focused on organizations and resources related to aging. The hospital’s ethics committee is available for consultations in regard to patient care issues that often have no clearcut answers (often end-of-life issues). The ethics committee may be asked to review a situation and bring its recommendation to family members and physicians - offering opinions that relate to situations which should (often) be covered by advance directives. They can also be asked to review situations that are of “social” and “ethical” concern to clinical staff and patients’ families.


The massive storm paralyzed the entire east coast with floods in the south, and blizzard conditions throughout the northeast, but after it finally ended, there was another long lull before any similarly wayward storms occurred. Nearly a decade had passed before the long drought was finally shattered by two powerful storms that pounded the northeast with a series of punishing, back to back Nor’easters over the Christmas 2002 and New Years 2003 holiday. The devastating, double whammy of the holiday season was soon followed by another major storm that struck the northeast in a span of less than two months. The powerful storm arrived on Presidents Day weekend, 2003, and it was the last of three devastating winter storms that rumbled through the region that season. After three major storms plowed through the Northeast in the winter of 2002-2003, the pace of major storms began to slow again. The next major storm to visit the Northeast was a Category 3, Winter Storm. With hurricane force winds and heavy snow, it battered the Northeast on Valentine’s Day, 2007 and shut down trains, planes and automobiles, and plunged millions of households into total darkness for days. The Valentine’s Day Disaster of 2007 was followed by The Great Ice Storm of ‘08, which encased the entire northeast in a thick layer of ice that toppled trees, telephone poles and transmission towers in late December. The storm produced a staggering mix of ice and heavy snow that crippled the entire region for more than two weeks in an area stretching from Montreal, Canada to Washington, DC. In recent years, the frequency of such fierce storms has steadily increased, and those storms have grown more powerful as evidenced by the destructive powers of Hurricane Floyd in 1999. Tropical Storm Irene ravaged the region’s roadways in 2011, and it will take many years for the local waterways to recover from the scouring caused by the resulting floods. Fortunately, the Adirondack region was largely spared from any extensive damage as the remnants of Hurricane Sandy blew through the area in October of 2012. However, we can expect to see more of the same according to a report issued by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The report explains that due to increasing moisture in the atmosphere, such severe weather events will become more frequent and more turbulent. Daily rainfall records collected from a variety of Adirondack weather stations over the past century reveal that "extreme rainfall events" of 2 inches of rain or more have become common in recent years. It is no surprise, for as the climate warms, more moisture is released into the atmosphere. And we all know, “What goes up, must eventually come down.”

Valley News - CV - 13 According to international climate scientists, climate change will result in more frequent droughts, heavier floods and more prolonged heat waves. Eventually, the experts predict, conditions may become so increasingly severe that some locations will only be “marginal as places to live.” Scientists expect climate change will have a variety of serious side effects in the Adirondacks, according to a recent study conducted by the NYS Energy Research and Development Authority. Projections indicate a rise of just 2 degrees in the average temperature will significantly reduce the costs associated with heating our homes. It sounds good to me! However, these changes may also require us to learn how to deal with 90 to 100 degree temperatures. And there will be other effects as well. Maple production will suffer, or possibly disappear all together. Cold water species such as brook trout may be threatened by competition with warm water species such as bass, perch or the introduction of invasive species. With the rise in temperature, air quality will be reduced, and there will be more pollen, and more allergies. Warming trends will disrupt many traditional Adirondack pursuits, and the threat of invasive species will increase. Outdoor enthusiasts will be among the first to experience the impact of climate change, which will affect many of their activities. Many long held, Adirondack sporting traditions will be affected. Ski seasons will be condensed, as will other winter activities such as snowmobiling, ice fishing, pond hockey, as well as the availability of tracking snow during the big game hunting season. It is expected the winter season will be condensed, and it will be wetter. Summers will become warmer, and longer in duration, and overall seasons will be less distinct. Precipitation will arrive mostly in the form of heavy storms, and rainfall will become less frequent. Summer droughts will become common, and they will last longer. It will be drier. Water levels will be diminished in the rivers and streams, and water temperatures will increase. Lake ice may no longer support activities such as ice fishing, ice sailing or even pond hockey. If ice cover does set up, it will be thinner and less consistent. Frogs will begin singing nearly a month earlier on average, and birds will arrive sooner. Seasons will be expedited, and far less defined. Already, there is evidence of local apple trees blooming over a week earlier than they did in the 1960’s. Projections indicate some wildlife populations, including whitetail deer will increase, as will the incidence of Lyme Disease. The traditional range of many habitats will shift, as oak and hickory begin to replace maple and beech. We may lose spruce and fir trees in the upper elevation, boreal forests. The shift will affect many of the birds and animals that depend on such habitats. The intricate web of life supported by the vast system of local boreal bogs will likely be endangered. Projections are dire, and the remedies are few. The world that we have known for generations is changing rapidly, as are many of the traditions that define our way of life.

Beds needed at Horace Nye Home Fish derby stockings questioned By Keith Lobdell ELIZABETHTOWN — While the signatures are pending, the Essex County Board of Supervisors is still in charge of the Horace Nye Nursing Home. The board voted on several resolutions pertaining to the soon-to-be-sold facility during its Feb. 7 regular board meeting, including the transfer of up to $20,000 from the contingency fund to the Horace Nye equipment account for the purchase of needed equipment, including beds. The county contingency fund stood at $200,000 as of Jan. 1 “The nursing home runs in the red constantly, so there is really no place that you can go other than contingency,” Moriah Supervisor and county Finance Chair Tom Scozzafava said. “If you do not do that, then you are just shuffling the cards around. The fact of the matter is we are still in the nursing home business and we need those beds.” Supervisors asked if there would be a way to recoup the cost of the beds after the home was sold. “Is there a chance that any of these items could be surplus after the sale of the home?” Essex Supervisor Sharon Boisen said. Both County Attorney Daniel Manning and County Manager Daniel Palmer said that the beds would go with the home in the sale. “I am suggesting a phone call to these people saying we need to replace these things, can we work something out here,” Westport Supervisor Daniel Connell said. “They are going to have to buy these things anyhow when they come in. It does not seem to make any sense to buy new beds that they may turn around and throw out in six to eight months.” Elizabethtown Supervisor Margaret Bartley agreed, saying that the beds that the potential buyer, Centers for Specialty Care, use are custom-made for them and that the county would be buying beds that would not be used by the new owners. “The beds that they have are custom de-

signed, and we would not be able to buy them,” she said. Manning said that the buyer may want to give the beds back to the county as surplus because it may be the less expensive option rather than disposing of the beds themselves. “It would seem logical that before we spend $20,000 for beds that they are not going to want before we sign the contract, I think we should find that out before we have a signed contract,” North Elba Supervisor Roby Politi said. Palmer said that the original spending request by director Deborah Gifford totaled near $60,000. “I went over the list with Deborah and asked her what the minimum was that she needed so we were not just buying new things for Specialty Care,” Palmer said. “We are in the nursing home business until they walk in the door and take over, and we have to treat it that way.” Charles Harrington, who was the only supervisor to vote against the spending, said he felt the county should look at a lease option for the needed beds. As far as the contract of sale, Manning said that he was expecting to have a signed document soon. “The contract is supposed to be coming back signed soon,“ Manning said. “We are doing it by email, and it is in their ballpark right now. They are supposed to send me back the signed contract.” As part of the sale, the board also approved the purchasing agent to seek bids for a survey of the Horace Nye Nursing Home. According to the resolution, there is no survey on file of the property in which the Horace Nye Home is situated and prior to the sale of the nursing home, a new certified survey should be done so the county knows what is being sold and the purchaser knows what they are buying. The board also approved a transfer of up to $881,392.80 from the Transfer to Horace Nye Home Account to the MMIS Account to pay the 48 percent local share for Medicaid for Supplemental Upper Payment Limit Allocated to the Nursing Home.

By Keith Lobdell ELIZABETHTOWN — While youth fishing derbies are popular local events each spring, one Essex County supervisor would like to see the practice of stocking trout prior to the tournaments from the Essex County Fish Hatchery stopped. During a meeting of the economic development, planning and publicity committee Feb. 11, Willsboro’s Ed Hatch said in lieu of the expected decrease in state stocking coupled with the expense involved in stocking before the kids fishing derbies, the county fish hatchery in Crown Point should no longer stock the ponds. “I can’t see how it can be a good thing to put these fish into a pond,” Hatch said. “They should be put into the streams and not into these ponds. It's a waste of time and money.” Hatch said that in his town, he estimated a $3,800 cost for stocking the pond used by the Willsboro Fish and Game Club for its annual spring derby. He also questioned if all of the fish that were being stocked in the ponds were being caught by youth. “I am told by most of the fish and game clubs that these are their biggest events with tons of kids showing up,” hatchery manag-

Chesterfield lands given to conservation easement CHESTERFIELD— The Open Space Institute announced today that a private landowner has donated a conservation easement that will forever protect a nearly 1,400acre forest in the northeast corner of the Adirondack Park. The parcel, a largely wooded Essex County tract owned by the Johanson family, buffers state lands, including Pokamoonshine Mountain, and sits within the viewshed of the historic firetower on the summit of Pokamoonshine, a popular destination

er Steve LaMere said. “If they came to me and said that they needed us to cut down the amount of fish we were stocking by 50 percent, we would do that. So far, no one has. We make sure that they have plenty.” Several supervisors spoke out in opposition of ending the stocking before tournaments. “I think that it is a great opportunity to bring young kids into fishing,” Keene Supervisor Bill Ferebee said. “It's a good program and I think that it should continue. They do a great job.” “We welcome any more fish that you can give us,” Chesterfield Supervisor Gerald Morrow said. “We have Roe Pond which is a designated pond for kids to fish in,” Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafava said. “We also opened it up to senior citizens as well and everyone had a ball. They all enjoy fishing on the pond it is easy to get to.” Hatch said that he still would prefer the trout be stocked in local streams and rivers and suggested stocking another fish than trout. “These trout are an expensive investment for us,” he said. “I think that they need to be in the rivers. Kids should learn how to fish in the rivers, too.” Log on to for more county meeting stories from the past week. for rock climbers, hikers and cross-country skiers. The conservation easement permits the future subdivision and modest single-family residential or limited commercial (i.e. bed and breakfast) development of two lots, and will otherwise restrict development and subdivision. It will permit passive recreational use and sustainable forestry in accordance with a forest management plan that is acceptable to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. The Johanson family retains ownership of the land and may pass it on or even sell the land, although any future owners must adhere to the terms of the easement.

Au SABLE FORKS — Town of Jay Supervisor Randall Douglas recently announced that the town has been awarded a $400,000 New York State Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). The award from this highly competitive round of grant funding has the potential to assist with the rehabilitation of approximately 13 homes. This funding, which was secured by a grant written by Bruce Misarski of the Housing Assistance Program of Essex County (HAPEC), will be utilized for owner occupied housing rehabilitation, with specific goals being; solving code violations, repairing situations where there are health and safety deficiencies and correcting severe energy efficiency issues. As in the past, these funds will be administered as a “deferred payment loan,” providing the owner remains in the home for five years. To be eligible, a household's income must be below 80% of the area's median household income; $47,450 for a family of four. Although there are currently 31 homes on the waiting list for rehabilitation, Misarski and Douglas are strongly

encouraging families who feel they may have existing qualifying issues to still fill out an application for this funding. Both Douglas and Misarski felt that the Town of Jay was a strong contender in the bid for this funding because of the amount of low to medium income families that were affected by Hurricane Irene. Homeowners affected by Hurricane Irene that did not qualify for FEMA buyout programs are strongly encouraged to fill out an application for this round of funding. Douglas believes that, “home owners who file an application and are placed on a waiting list will improve the potential chance for success of any future grant applications.” “This is the third CDBG Grant that the Town of Jay has been awarded since I became Supervisor, the first being in 2006,” Douglas said. These grants are helping to revitalize our community and others across the state of New York by making funds available to income qualifying families that might otherwise not be able to afford costly home repairs. This program will allow us to offer a better quality of life to our constituents.” Applications may be obtained by calling Bruce Misarski at HAPEC at 8736888.
