Section VII Champs Argument for Moriah Shock delivered to state officials By Matt Bosley matt@denpubs.com ELIZABETHTOWN — An extensive report on the economic impact of Moriah Shock Correctional Facility portrays Essex County as an depressed area dependent on its presence and details just how much more there is to lose if the prison is closed. The Essex County Moriah Shock Task Force, comprised of local officials and department heads, prepared the 23-page report and hand-delivered it to state officials in Albany March 2. County Manager Dan Palmer drafted much of its content. “We feel we can demonstrate that this closure has an impact that goes beyond the

Study: AuSable gets worse as it goes

By Jon Alexander denpubs@denpubs.com

ALBANY — Gov. David Paterson’s nomination of Peter Hornbeck to the Adirondack Park Agency Board will most likely not make it out of committee. According to State Sen. Elizabeth Little (R-Queensbury), senators serving on the Senate Finance Committee indicated March 3 that Hornbeck’s nomination will not be moved because there are not enough votes in support of it, and the governor ’s office has been advised as such. “We were told yesterday that there were, at most, 14 votes in support of the nomination,” said Dan Mac Entee, spokesman for

ELIZABETHTOWN — Data from an ongoing study indicates that water quality in both branches of the AuSable River steadily declines as it moves downstream and passes through places of human habitation. According to AuSable River Association Executive Director Dr. Carol Treadwell, both the east and west branches of the AuSable River begin as relatively uncontaminated streams, but become continually more concentrated with dissolved solids as the water moves downstream. “Some source, human or natural, is contributing a large content of ions,” Treadwell

said. “We don’t know what they are, but we will be spending next summer finding that out.” Initiated in 2009, the Au Sable River Association water quality study measures the amount of particulate and dissolved pollution by measuring the water ’s electrical conductivity. Treadwell suspects much of the contamination originates from human activity and points to factors like road salt, water runoff and clearing vegetation along riverbanks as a few possible reasons for increased contamination levels. “It seems like there may be a large contribution from the roads,” Treadwell said. A recently completed study by Paul

From Our Deli

Smith’s College and ADK Action concluded that road salt has substantially raised the sodium levels of numerous Adirondack water bodies. The research found especially high levels of contaminates near state Route 73 in Jay and the Keeseville Wastewater Treatment Plant. Treadwell said that increased particulate and dissolved contamination could devastate trout spawning grounds and decimate the fish population. In 2003 the state Department of Environmental Conservation estimated that fishing tourism on the Au Sable alone has a $3.8 million economic impact on the region.

VALLEY NEWS - 3

Carbon monoxide detectors now required in all NYS homes By Matt Bosley denpubs@denpubs.com LEWIS — Homeowners in Essex County should take note of a new state law calling for wider usage of carbon monoxide alarms. Gov. David Paterson signed “Amanda’s Law” in August 2009, requiring all homes in New York State to be equipped with a carbon monoxide detector. The law took effect Feb. 22. The law is named for Amanda Hansen, a 16-year-old from West Seneca, N.Y. who died of carbon monoxide poisoning from a defective boiler while staying overnight at a friend’s house. As a bill, it was widely supported by legislators of both parties. It requires homes built prior to 2008 to have a battery-powered carbon monoxide alarm installed on the lowest story having a sleeping area. Those built after 2008 must have a hard-wired alarm with battery back-up on each story with a sleeping area or where a source of carbon monoxide is located. According to Essex County Emergency Services Director Don Jaquish, local enforcement of the law will be exacted through each town’s code enforcement officer. There are no specific fines or penalties listed in the law as of yet, but they could be added in the future. “It’s not like you’re going to have the

carbon monoxide police coming and searching your home or anything like that,” said Jaquish, noting that most of the focus will remain on ensuring detectors are installed in apartments and other multi-family units. Still, Jaquish said, installing at least one carbon monoxide detector in your home is, at the very least, a wise decision for the sake of safety. “We usually get a fair number of [emergency] calls for [carbon monoxide] alarms going off,” said Jaquish, noting one such call as recently as last week in Moriah that led firemen to discover a propane leak. Deaths from carbon monoxide poisoning have been recorded in Essex County, said Jaquish, though most of them occurred during events like the Ice Storm of 1998 when many people were forced to use gas-powered generators or home heating sources that were not properly ventilated. “And we have had people who have been affected by carbon monoxide poisoning,” He added. Carbon monoxide is an invisible, odorless gas produced any time a fuel is burned. It is the leading cause of accidental poisoning deaths in the U.S. Even nonfatal exposure can cause damage to the heart and central nervous system. As Jaquish explained, the effects of carbon monoxide are cumulative and can develop to poisonous levels over long peri-

Led by NHS advisor DeAnna Brown, several members of the Elizabethtown-Lewis Central School National Honor Society took part in a food drive the week of March 1. Here, NHS members Zach Denton (right) and Josh Pierce take a time out from distributing and shelving food. Other students participating included Evan Drew, Brad Egglefield, Paul Burdo, Easy Diemond, Brock Marvin, Tim LaRock and Nate Rock. The nearly 500 pounds of food they collected was distributed to the Community Food Shelf, ACAP and Families First, all of whom expressed deep appreciation for their efforts and support of the community.

ods of time. At high concentrations, however, it can become fatal in a matter of minutes. “It’s an oxygen theif,” Jaquish said. “It steals oxygen from your blood.” While carbon monoxide is a danger for any home that burns wood or fossil fuels, Jaquish estimates less than half the homes in Essex County have a carbon monoxide detector installed. “A lot of people do the smoke alarms,” he said, “but they don’t bother with a carbon monoxide detector.” Fortunately, Jaquish said, most fire departments in Essex County have their own carbon monoxide detecting equipment, some of which also track other harmful gasses. In most cases, they can use those sensors to determine the source of the gas. In many cases, he said, it is determined to be a false alarm resulting from a defective carbon monoxide detector. “So you want to be sure to buy one that has a good consumer rating,” Jaquish said. Carbon monoxide detectors generally range in price from $20 to $50, depending on what other features they offer. Most recommend replacement every five years. “Sometimes a law is in place to force people into safe behaviors,” said Jaquish, “but in all cases, it’s up to the person to decide the safe thing to do.”

ave Lansing called to say that the most recent blood drive at the Essex Firehouse brought in 21 donors. Dave pointed out this is a very high number given our small population. Blood drives are held every three months throughout the year at the firehouse, so this spring, instead of letting the black flies have all your blood, donate some to help a person in need. I stopped over at the French's new sugar house this morning to see how the early season is going. The first runs have produced a fair amount of high quality syrup and Bradley and Michael have been boiling late into the night. The sugar house is roomy and comes equipped with comfortable seating, congenial neighbors and a popcorn machine. The aroma inside is sweet and smoky, with shafts of sunshine splitting the steam in the rafters. Amy started our onion seeds this week, using a special heating pad underneath and strong fluorescent lights overhead. The snow is rapidly disappearing from my garden and soon it will be time to get some lettuce seedlings going. This year I'm going to plant

lettuce and spinach in raised beds covered with a special black plastic that admits infrared light for heat but prevents weeds from growing. We'll see how this experiment works out. Ravens are now building their nests. Ravens favor tall pines and use dead pine branches still attached to the tree as nesting material. Using their weight, the birds break off the branches and add them to the nest. If they drop the branch, they ignore it and look for another to break off. I guess ravens don't have a five-second rule the way I do for food that lands on the kitchen floor. Signs of spring, not all welcome, are abounding. Right now our house is crawling with cluster flies and lady bugs, one of which I ingested involuntarily on a piece of toast. If you eat a ladybug first thing in the morning, nothing else evil will happen to you the rest of the day. It's a taste that lingers. These insects are just trying to get outside and Amy suggests cracking a few windows to let them go. Ginny is shedding her winter coat, leaving clumps of white dog hair around the house. If I open the car window when we're riding along, clouds of white hair fly out.

ell folks it is census time once again; hard to believe that 10 years have passed. We are hopeful that everyone in our community takes this seriously and fills out the form quickly, getting it back into the mail. These forms are being hand-delivered house to house, each house should be receiving their little package very soon. Truly, it does only take about 10 minutes to fill it out, and it is ever so important. We all received in the mail a post card from the Willsboro Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee asking us to fill out a community survey. The Willsboro steering committee has worked hard to develop a compressive plan for the future development of our community on how we would like to see our community be well into the future. It is very important that they get community input. I picked my copy of the survey up at the Town Hall and it is great to be able to give my opinions on future growth. This survey can also be done online if you like to use your computer: www.surveymonkey.com/s/willsborocomprehensiveplan, but please take the time to lend your choices; this also needs to be returned soon. I understand that Cleo Lobdell recently had a great family birthday celebration; it is great to become 5 years old. It seems that families really like to celebrate the very young and the very old years, and not so much the ones in between, so enjoy. Well for those that like to enjoy the community events it is a busy weekend and you will

his week we at the NCSPCA thought you might be interested in some information about the intelligence of your canine friend. There have been long debates on how smart dogs when compared to humans. The majority of research seems to indicate that our loyal pets may be smarter than we think! On average, The domestic dog appears to possess a social intelligence that is uncommon in the animal world. Puppies have been shown to learn behaviors quickly by following examples set by experienced dogs. Research has even been shown that dogs are capable of interpreting subtle social cues, and seem to be aware of when a human or dog's attention is directed their way. Psychologist and leading canine researcher Stanley Coren, PhD, of the University of British Columbia, found evidence that the average IQ of a dog is approximately 2-2.5 human years old. They can even understand more than 150 words and intentionally deceive other dogs and humans - to get toys or treats. The next time you think your pup isn't listening or understanding your conversation, you may want to think again! Our featured pet this week is Quila, a honey-colored Beagle/Boxer mix who will do

Quila anything to get your attention for a good game of catch, a walk, or a scratch behind her ears. She is good-natured and easy going; the perfect companion for a family with children. She has an endearing smile and loves to go for walks. You will certainly see the intelligence and humor in those deep brown eyes when she cocks her head to listen to you. If you decide to come out to the shelter and meet her, the Spring weather is a beautiful time to take her for a walk and get to know her!

have to pick and choose how you want to spend the Saturday evening events being offered. Another interesting event that is coming up on Friday, March 19, at 7 p.m. Linda Heintz will present a history of and the future projection for the Old Grist Mill. The Heintz are the present owners of the mill and are slowly trying to bring the grist mill back into a better condition. This is a Willsboro Heritage Society Program open to the interested public at the Visitor’s Center. All of our citizens that went to warmer climates for the winter months, you can come home any time now, I think our weather up here is getting better every day, snow is almost gone. We learned this week of the death of Diane Smith, the wife of our former United Methodist Pastor, David Smith. If you would like to send a card to Rev. Smith, his address is 422 Sand Creek Road, Apt. 317, Albany, N.Y. 12205. There were to be no calling hours and a memorial service will be held March 13 in Albany. I also learned of the deaths of two former Willsboro people. Robert Smith, son of Foster & Cora Smith died recently in Florida. The other person is Richard Mero, the son of Arthur and Edna Mero; he died in Lake Placid. Both of these men were Willsboro School Alumni. Happy Birthday: Kathryn Belzile 3/15, Dottie Dodds 3/16, Ken Coonrod 3/18. Happy Anniversary: Scott & Kim Feeley 3/14, Dug & Flora June Doyle 4/16, Chuck & Irene Krotz 3/18.

ongratulations to the intrepid Westport girls' basketball team, who played their usual strong defensive game in winning the Section VII Championship over Lake Placid on March 5. Back from an ankle injury, Willa McKinley led the way in the 35-28 victory, scoring a game-high 11 points, including two 3-pointers. This is the 18th sectional crown that the WCS girls have taken home. We'll keep our fingers crossed as they advance to the state quarterfinals. Way to go! Other WCS news includes a number of exciting events coming up. On Friday, March 19, the Class of 2012 presents master hypnotist Michael Blaine, who lives in Peru but has wowed audiences around the nation with his mesmerizing talents. The show starts at 6:30 p.m. in the auditorium, and tickets are $8 for adults or $5 for students and seniors. Also, this year's talent show will be on Saturday, March 27, at 7 p.m. in the auditorium, and the theme will be "Where the Wild Things Are"— which just about sums up this legendary annual event. And don't forget that the annual Tanneberger basketball tournament, which I mentioned last week, is coming up Saturday, March 20 in the school gym, with the volunteer fire department's Spaghetti Supper available in the cafeteria starting at 5 p.m. I don't get off work ‘til 6 or so on Saturdays, but I'm counting on there being some left for me.

By the way, while we're on the subject of our wonderful school, can I just say how happy I am to see "Behind the Wall" (the WCS student publication) available to the community again. I always used to read it when it came in the mail, and enjoyed the fine writing and informative articles it invariably contained. I was sorry when it was no longer circulated to the community at large, which I thought benefitted enormously from being exposed to the views of some of its brightest students. So thanks for bringing "Behind the Wall" back out from "behind the wall." The day after the Tanneberger tournament—that is, Sunday, March 21—you're invited to the Sunday Brunch Sourdough Waffle and Frittata Extravaganza at Dogwood Bread Company in Wadhams, to benefit the Wadhams Free Library, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.. In addition to the mouthwatering waffles, hearty frittatas, and fresh fruit salad, library board members will concoct a tempting array of succulent desserts. Suggested donation is $12 adults or $6 for those under twelve. Frittata, by the way, is what happens when you fry up good things like potatoes and onions with an option on sausage, add in chunks of cheddar, and then pour scrambled eggs on top and put it in the oven to firm up. Yours truly has been put in charge of frittata production. Between that and Courtney's world-class sourdough waffles, I'm here to tell you this will be a meal to remember.

Community supported study abroad trip to France

Concerned for Jim LaForest To the editor: I have read letters supporting Pretty Good’s former Essex Column as well as his detractors’ communications. But what about Pretty Good himself? Being such a caring, sharing, God-loving individual, he must have been devastated by his unceremoniously having been pushed into early retirement. And what about his future opportunities? This period in his so far well-rounded life will be a blight on his resume forever, and that is a long time indeed. Wayne R. Bailey, Essex

Columnist change justified To the editor: Reading Tom and Bea Carrick's letter in the Feb. 20 Valley News I was reminded of how much I liked Jim LaForest's Essex column when he first started. Guess they liked it, too. By the end, however, Jim had started taking jabs at the new town supervisor, so I have to say, I don't miss his column at all. Rob Ivy is doing a fine job. His column is getting into the swing of things. Max Grant, Essex

Nobody Does It Better! Valley News

To the editor: Twelve AuSable Valley high school students returned from France on Feb. 23 after an exciting study abroad experience. The students attended the Centre Méditerranéen d'Etudes Françaises during their February break to study French and experience French culture. Classes were held every morning and then cultural visits to various sites and cities in southern France were taken every afternoon. They had the pleasure of attending a Mardi Gras parade in Nice and the 77ème Fête du Citron in Menton. The students even walked to the principality of Monaco one evening to walk the famed Formula 1 route. Additionally, the students flew to Lyon and traveled by train to Paris to see many sights including Fourvière Basilica, the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre Museum, Notre Dame Cathedral, La Basilique du Sacré Coeur de Montmartre, and the Arc de Triomphe to name a few! This educational and cultural opportunity would not have been possible without the support of many businesses, organizations, and individuals in our community who are too many to name. We would like to thank each and every one of them for their interest in our students and their dedication to seeing that children’s lives are enriched through travel and immersion in another culture.

ADIRONDACK Happiness is investing in experiences, not more things CRYPTOGRAM M ore and more Americans are walking away from rampant consumerism, rife with all the attendant affectations accordant with acquiring more and more things. This change is being spearheaded by America’s baby boomers. According to Harvard Business School researcher John Quelch, this new consumer could be called the “simplifier.” They are well off but do not want to be tied down by a big house, expensive cars and possessions that take up space, time and money. Simplifiers present a significant challenge to marketers that have historically convinced people to increase their worth and increase their possessions. Simplifiers want to collect experiences and not possessions. They want to give these experiences to others, too, rather than objects. A growing body of research suggests that most people gain more lasting benefits from experiences than from acquiring objects. Everyone can remember vacations or trips, meeting new people and experiencing a new place. Take a look at a photo album to refresh your memory. How many pictures do you have of your new microwave, kitchen range, car or sofa? You may recall many wonderful memories for the time you took a scuba diving lesson or rode horse back on a beach. What are your memories of your new couch or car? Quite simply, we don’t become bored with our memories of new experiences. Sooner or later that new car or truck is an old car or truck and, let’s face it, the

thrill is definitely gone. The experiences do not have to be elaborate or expensive. In fact several inexpensive experiences are among the most remarkable. Camping has been identified in a number of studies as among the most memorable experiences that children have in childhood. A University of Minnesota study found that children that have one or more meal with their parents every day By Scot Hurlburt are much less at risk across a variety of risk categories. A special dinner with all hands involved can be a wonderful bonding experience. For those that can afford it traveling is a wonderful experience and educational to boot. The next time you are tempted to buy another thing or another object, consider how much you and your family might benefit from a new experience instead. Remember, all kids count.

any people do not have the cash flow to stock up the way you do. The economy has really hurt the budget of the average family and they are no longer able to shop the way they used to (such as taking advantage of the sales and buying extra). Do you have any tips for us? I do use coupons but would like to take better advantage of my buying power. I just don’t really know how.” I particularly liked this letter from a reader. It encompasses the way many people feel when they first start using coupons. It’s a common misconception I spend a lot to stock up on quantities of the items that I buy each week. My weekly grocery bill for our family of five averages between $40 and $60 post-coupons. But for that money, I’m typically buying around $100 worth of groceries. Supermarkets operate on a 12-week pricing cycle, so stocking up on the things we need when the prices of these items hit their low point during this period makes sense. When you know the items you buy are at their lowest prices just one time during that cycle, buying them only when the price hits that low saves us a lot of money, even without using coupons. Let’s take juice, for example. At my store, a bottle of grape juice can range in price from $1.99 to $3.99. Clearly, I want to buy the juice when it’s at its low price. If my family drinks one bottle of grape juice a week, I’ll need 12 bottles to get through the next 12-week cycle. While it’s true the initial expense of buying that juice all at once requires more than one might choose to budget just for juice in one week, consider the savings in buying it at that low. A typical juice price cycle over six weeks at my store may look like this: Week 1: $1.99; Week 2: $2.29; Week 3: $2.79; Week 4: $2.99; Week 5: $3.29; and Week 6: $3.79. If I purchased one bottle a week over this 6-week span, I’d spend $17.14. But, if I bought six bottles the week it was at its lowest point, on sale for $1.99, I’d spend a total of just $11.94. That’s more than $5 saved in just six weeks’ time, without even considering coupons. Of course, I want to use my coupons at that low point, thus lowering my out-of-pocket cost even more. If you shop cycle lows for everything you buy, you’re definitely buying multiples of items when the prices are low. Remember, though, you will not buy that item again until it goes on sale weeks from now. So, while I might spend a large percentage of my budget on juice in a particular week, I

won’t buy juice again at all until it’s on sale at a low price some time down the road. If you followed me around the grocery store, you’d see I fill my shopping cart with an eclectic mix of items. It rarely contains all of the staples you might notice in other people’s carts, because aside from fresh produce and dairy By Jill Cataldo I shop strictly for items that are at their cycle lows that particular week. I usually have what looks like an unusual quantity of the same item in my cart, because I’m stocking up! I will of course use all the coupons I have for those items as I purchase them at the low price. But even if I don’t have coupons for all of them, as with our juice example above, I know I won’t be able to purchase these items at this low price again for almost three months, so I buy what I anticipate needing. This is a different way of shopping, it’s true, but the strategy balances out budget-wise when you consider what you’re NOT buying each week. Typically, when you’re starting out, it takes you 12 weeks to go through your first cycle, where you start to notice and learn the price highs and lows for the items you commonly buy. Those first 12 weeks are going to be a little more expensive, because you’re also going to have to buy the things your household needs as you build your stockpile. If you’re out of laundry detergent, you’ll buy it because you need it, regardless of the price. But a few weeks later, the price may hit a cycle low, and it will be time to stock up for the next time you need it. Then, the next time you need laundry detergent you’ll “shop at home,” because you have extra on-hand you purchased when the price was at its low. And after that first 12 weeks, your home stockpile will include all of the basics you use frequently ... and that you will no longer be paying high prices for!

stops at the Lake Placid Olympic Center in between stops in Saranac Lake and Tupper Lake. Dougal said ridership on Essex County’s bus system contiues to grow steadily, just as it has since its establishment three years ago. All three of the routes combined are averaging nearly 50 riders per day. “The hardest part is getting people on the bus,” said Dougal. “Once their first trip is completed, 90 percent continue to ride.” Offering the new routes will help many people in previously unserved communities get to doctor ’s appointments, said Dougal. Issues with Keeseville residents getting to the Smith House Health Center in Willsboro were a major motivator for extending service further north, she said. “Franklin County is a lot like us,” Dougal added. “They have a lot of low income people and have to move them around to doctor ’s appointments.” Now, Essex County residents along the Mountain Valley Shuttle route will find it easier to get to appointments at Adirondack Medical Center.

denpubs@denpubs.com ELIZABETHTOWN — “Crossing Communities” is the nickname given to Essex County Transportation’s public bus routes, but they will soon be crossing county lines as well. Starting in March, bus routes operated by Essex County will link with buses in both Clinton and Franklin counties at locations in Keeseville and Ray Brook. The Champlain North Route, which currently makes stops between Elizabethtown, Willsboro and Wadhams, will soon be extended to Keeseville. “I’m hoping to have that up and running by [March] 15,” said Essex County Transportation Coordinator Nancy Dougal. The twice daily stops in Keeseville will link with buses operated by Clinton County Public Transportation, effectively extending the route between Elizabethtown and Plattsburgh. Also by March 15, the Mountain Valley Shuttle, a free Essex County bus that runs between AuSable Forks and Lake Placid, will make stops at the Federal Correctional facility in Ray Brook twice daily, roughly at the same time Franklin County busses arrive there. Riders can take the Franklin County Adirondack Route bus from Ray Brook north to Malone and points in between. Another Franklin County bus, the southern route, makes

Obituaries Poynton Kenneth Bishop Dec. 2, 1919 - Feb. 27, 2010 ELIZABETHTOWN — His name was as unique as his life, Poynton Kenneth Bishop, but his many friends knew him as “P.K.” He traveled to every continent, but his favorite place on earth remained Elizabethtown, N.Y. He died there this past Saturday, at the age of 90. P.K. was born on December 2, 1919, the son of Oakes E. Bishop and Edna Smith Bishop. His parents named him after John Poynton, a family friend and personal secretary to Andrew Carnegie. P.K. was raised in Chappaqua, New York, and he would spend

summers in New Russia where he developed his love of the North Country. He graduated from Wesleyan University and served with distinction as a Lieutenant (JG) in the United States Navy during World War II. Following the war, P.K. decided to work as a stock broker on Wall Street with his father and brother, Doug. For decades, P.K. commuted from the suburbs to Manhatten each day. He hated it, and would often talk with his brother Doug about their mutual dream of moving to the Adirondacks. When Doug passed away suddenly of a heart attack in 1972, P.K. took that as a “wake up call” and decided that the time to move had come. He renovated his summer camp in New Russia into a year-round home and moved there for good in 1974. There, by the Beavermeadow Brook, he and his wife Lois – along with their beloved poodles – would host a seemingly endless parade of local and global friends they had met on cruises and vacations around the world. On any given weekend, chances are that you could find P.K., vodka martini and steak sandwich in hand, performing magic tricks, playing ping pong, and otherwise enjoying life with his family and friends. If P.K. excelled at one thing in particular, however, it was the game of contract bridge. A Gold Life Master and published author of the game, P.K. won numerous regional ti-

VALLEY NEWS - 9 tles and once reached the semi-finals of the prestigious national Vanderbilt championship before finally succumbing in the last segment to a team led by the legendary bridge player Charles Goren. When Lois passed away in 2001, P.K.’s three sons around the country invited him to move closer to them. P.K. would have none of it. It had taken him long enough to reach the Adirondacks, and he had no intention of leaving those mountains now. For the next several years, P.K. remained a beloved member of the Elizabethtown community. P.K. spent his last few years at the Horace Nye Home where he passed quietly in his sleep early Saturday morning, Feb. 27. P.K. is survived by his three sons, one daughter, six grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren. A funeral service to celebrate the life of a true North Country character will be held 3 p.m. on Friday, March 5, at The United Church of Christ in Elizabethtown. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that a charitable contribution in P.K.'s name be made to the North Country Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (NCSPCA), 23 Lake Shore Road, Westport, New York 12993-3500, 9628604.

Deer take way down in the northern zone T

he poor deer take in the northern zone last season is no longer a rumor.

While hunters harvested 222,800 deer statewide during the 2009 season — nearly the same as 2008 — the deer take in the northern zone was down nearly 20 percent, state officials said last week. Even more telling was the buck take, which dropped from 20,726 in 2008 to 16,279 in 2009 — a drastic 27 percent reduction. The total deer take in the northern zone was 28,464 in 2009 compared to 33,938 in 2008. Some local hunting clubs estimate the take was down by 40 percent or more, the worst season they’ve seen in decades, and the numbers seem to follow my prediction of the deer take being lower in region’s hardest hit by the winters of 2007 and 2008. Take, for example, Warren, Essex and Hamilton counties. In 2007, hunters killed 1,192 bucks in Essex County, 964 in Hamilton County and 637 in Warren County. In 2008, that number rose to 1,244 bucks in Essex; 1,298 in Hamilton and 722 in Warren. But, in 2009, the take dropped drastically to 873 in Essex, 430 in Warren and just 510 in Hamilton — more than a 50 percent decline. All this means that if you tagged a buck last year, consider yourself in fortunate company. Some hunters have criticized the state’s policy against feeding deer saying it contributes to the mortality rate — especially during severe winters. But, wildlife officials say deer populations tend to be cyclical, and the herd is sure to rebound, especially after the mild conditions experienced this winter. The DEC also noted a motivating factor behind the feeding ban was to stop the spread of Chronic Wasting Disease, which was first detected in New York in 2005. The spread of CWD has, at least for now, been held in check. More than 30,000 deer have been tested since 2005, without one positive case of CWD found. State officials generally refute the argument there were less deer last year and instead blame the unusually warm November experienced by northern zone hunters for the poor take here. But, senior wildlife biologist Ed Reed said in some of Region 5, especially southern parts of the region, other factors contributed to the low deer take. “The past two winters in southern Hamilton County, Warren County, and northern Washington, Saratoga, and Fulton counties were harsher than average and we did experience some winter kill,” Reed said. “Also, in both of those winters, the deep snow

came very early, well before the end of the regular season, causing some deer to begin moving toward wintering areas while hunting season was still open, making them more vulnerable to hunters.” Some hunters are aware of deer migration routes and concentrate their efforts on those routes when the snow comes early, Reed said. “The increased buck harvest, as a result, will reduce the buck harvest the next year or two. For example, the 2008 buck harvest in Hamilton County was the highest since 1969, but, in 2009, it dropped off significantly.” The silver lining, Reed said, is the low harvest in 2009 coupled with this winter’s mild weather should mean better deer numbers this fall. For a complete breakdown of the statewide deer take, including calculations by county and town, go to www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/42232.html.

Program aimed at improving balance In the interest of getting older folks up and enjoying outdoor activities, Adirondack guide Elizabeth Lee of Westport and Willsboro-based physical therapist and personal trainer Brian Trzaskos will team up to present a unique program to the public on balance, aging and outdoor living. The free event will be held this Tuesday, March 16, from 10:30 11:30 a.m. at the Wallonsburgh Grange. People of all ages are encouraged to attend. Lee said the program will offer specific ideas and incentives for adults to resume outdoor activities they enjoy. Paramount to that, however, is a sense of security, she said. “I think a lot of older people have a real fear of falling and an uncertainty about safe terrain which keeps them from enjoying outdoor activities — especially during the winter months,” Lee said. At the March 16 program, Trzaskos will share in-depth knowledge of lifestyle patterns and physical dynamics which can improve balance and flexibility at all ages. Lee said she hopes many residents will attend and, in turn, feel more comfortable with pursuing an active lifestyle at any age. For more information, contact Lee at 962-4756 or lakeside5047@gmail.com. John Gereau is managing editor of Denton Publications and an avid outdoorsman. He can be reached at johng@denpubs.com.

Westport repels Bombers in Class D final By Matt Bosley matt@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — Despite some late offensive miscues, Westport’s defense held off the Blue Bombers and the Eagles defended their Section VII Class D girls basketball championship, beating Lake Placid 35-28 March 5 at the SUNY Plattsburgh Fieldhouse. Westport suffered their lowest-scoring half of the season, managing just 10 points after halftime, but refused to give up the lead to the Blue Bombers after gaining a 25-12 edge in the first half. Willa McKinley put the top-seeded Eagles in good position early, scoring six of her 11 points in the first quarter as several steals led to points in transition for Westport. But the tables turned in the second half as Westport suddenly found themselves giving up a string of turnovers. The Blue Bombers took advantage, especially guard Molly Ploof, who scored seven of her 11 points in the third. “We just lost our composure on the offensive end,” said Westport head coach Hokey McKinley. “That allowed them to get back into it.” While the Blue Bombers came out with more intensity in the second half, Westport held fast on defense, limiting Lake Placid to just three fourth-quarter points. “If we can’t score, then we’re going to make it hard for the other team,” McKinley said.

And they did just that. Lake Placid’s Megan Riley, who has led her team with an average of about 13 points per game this season, was held to just four in the title game, though she still managed to collect nine rebounds. “We were hoping we could get her to post up more instead of being out in the perimeter,” said Lake Placid head coach Frank Johns, “but they adjusted.” Cierra Stephenson added seven points and nine rebounds for Lake Placid, which finished with a record of 16-5 for the season. “Their defense was what really won the game for them,” said Johns. “That’s probably the toughest defense we’ve seen all year, and that’s including the [Class] B schools”

Kalika Hopkins finished with seven points and Christina hit a pair of free throws late to finish with six for Westport, improving

their record to 20-0 this season. “They should represent us well in regionals,” said Johns.

Hornets swarm Patriots in Class B final By Matt Bosley matt@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — The Patriots stunned many with a 54-53 win against Peru last week to advance to the Section VII Class B boys basketball finals against Plattsburgh High, but another AuSable Valley upset was not to be. Plattsburgh’s big second quarter dashed the Patriots’ bid for their first title since moving up to Class B as the Hornets went on to win 6554 at the SUNY Plattsburgh Fieldhouse March 6. “Nobody expected us to be here,” said AuSable Valley head coach Jamie Douglass, noting a good matchup between two teams known for speed and athleticism. Despite falling to the Hornets 67-52 in their only regular season meeting, AuSable Valley showed early in the game that they were not to be taken lightly, erasing what had been a six-point Plattsburgh lead in the first quarter and building a 20-15 lead of their own early in the second. TJ Burl scored 11 of his 13 points in the first half, adding 11 rebounds. But the tables soon turned as Plattsburgh opened up a 15-0 run, taking advantage of fastbreaks against a Patriot backcourt suddenly missing a foul-plagued Jordan Coolidge.

“We had some spots where there were some mismatches created with their speed,” explained Douglass. “I couldn’t stop the bleeding.” Tre Bucci and Kyle LaPoint combined for 13 points in the second as the Hornets built a 10-point lead that would grow to 16 by the end of the third. They would finish with 17 and 16 points, respectively, for Plattsburgh. The Hornets would continue to hamper AuSable Valley on the offensive end. Despite several layup and free throw attempts, the Patriots struggled to put the ball in the hoop. They finished 9-of-20 from the line as a team. “It just came down to foul shots and converting those layups,” said Douglass.

Brody Douglass led the charge for AuSable Valley with 16 of his team-high 20 points in the fourth quarter, and would also finish with 11 rebounds. His 3-pointer with just over a minute left cut the Hornets’ lead to six, but it would be as close as the Patriots would get. Plattsburgh would continue to hit their free throws down the stretch, including Kyle Knight, who hit 7-of-8 in the fourth to finish 9-of-10 from the line for a team-high 19 points. Despite the loss, the Patriots have high hopes for next year as they lose only two seniors to graduation. All five of their starters, Burl, Douglass, Coolidge, Austin Case and Connor Manning, are among those available to return next season.

Solution to last week’s puzzle


www.Thevalleynews.org

SATURDAY March 13, 2010

Shock From page 1 Town of Moriah or the County of Essex, and that ultimately this will prove to have a negative impact on the state,” Palmer wrote in the report.

Hard Numbers The report cites, among other things, an analysis by SUNY Plattsburgh Economics professor Colin Read. The Essex County Board of Supervisors recently approved a contingency expenditure of $3,800 for Read to compile his study. Read, who holds a Ph.D. in Economics, used software called IMPLAN 3.0 to estimate how much the facility pumps into the local economy through purchases and labor income, as well as how much those suppliers and employees spend their money locally. Through his analysis, Read determined, in addition to the 102 non-education personnel employed within the facility, there are the equivalent of 41 full-time local jobs dependent on its operation. Those 143 jobs take in total earnings of nearly $8 million each year, explained Read; roughly 1.2 percent of the county’s total labor income. Losing those jobs would cause the unemployment rate to jump from 10.3 percent to 11.1 percent, said Read. In turn, he estimates home values to decrease by $23 million county-wide. The overall loss of jobs and property value would mean a $3.4 million loss of state and local tax revenue and $2.2 million loss of federal tax revenue. “These total tax revenue losses totaling $5,570,953 rivals the $6,910,698 budget for the Moriah Shock Treatment facility,” wrote Read. Read also calculated that Moriah Shock inmates provid-

community service in 2009. At the average salary received by groundskeepers in the North Country, that equates to $1.2 million worth of labor annually. More than one-third of those hours were spent doing work for the state Department of Environmental Conservation, the report states, and Moriah Shock crews are the “front line labor crews” for clean-up and recovery from many natural disasters in the region during the past 15 years. “The state will have to supplement the lost labor in some fashion within their departmental budgets,” Palmer argued.

Already Struggling “We believe we can support our contention that it is unreasonable for the State to expect we can absorb this in addition to our normal hardships associated with life in the Adirondacks,” wrote Palmer. Citing the 2009 Adirondack Park Regional Assessment Project, the report highlights the region’s dependency on correctional services. That study determined non-education government-sector jobs account for more than 30 percent of all employment in most of the Adirondacks and about 4 percent of the region’s population resides in a prison. The report also notes how Essex County’s median income is $43,132 per year; 23.91 percent below the statewide average of $53,448. Palmer pointed out how 30 percent of the county’s population are receiving some sort of assistance through Social Services. “All of us understand shared sacrifice,” Palmer stated, “but when 38,857 residents are asked to carry the load for the benefit of those within the state who live outside the park, then it is no longer shared sacrifice, but rather unreasonably assigned burden.”

River From page 1 Officials estimate the current regional economic impact of the fly fishing industry could be in excess of $5 million annually. Currently, five businesses that specialize in providing gear and guiding service

along the Au Sable employ as many as 51 area residents during the fly fishing season. Treadwell suggests that municipalities begin spring road cleaning earlier than usual at sites close to the river. She also said vegetative replanting along the river ’s banks could stem much of the erosion that is

VALLEY NEWS - 19 dumping tons of particulates into the Au Sable each year. Essex County Department of Soil and Water Director David Reckahn said each year the county and hundreds of residents plant between 5,000 and 10,000 trees, many of them along the banks of the Au Sable.

Treadwell and her research team will spend the 2010 summer season trying to pin down the exact sources of the contaminants.

Hornbeck From page 1 Little. “The committee conReaders Poll sists of 32 senators, so a vote would fall short of the Should local governments in the Adirondacks have more amount needed to advance say in who gets appointed to the APA board? it to the Senate floor for consideration by the full body.” Yes No Paterson had nominated Hornbeck, a canoe builder Cast your vote and comment online today at... and environmentalist from www.thevalleynews.org Olmstedville, for the seat held by Lake Placid businessman Arthur Lussi, who remains on the board even though his term expired June 30. In a March 4 press release, Little said many of her colleagues, both Republican and Democrat, have shared her concern over the ethical issues Hornbeck’s nomination posed. “This appointment raised a lot of concern locally and many North Country elected, political, business and civic leaders made that known to senators on both sides of the aisle,” said Little. Hornbeck is a member of Protect the Adirondacks!, an environmental organization that filed a lawsuit against the Adirondack Park Agency in January for its decision not to classify Lows Lake as Wilderness. The group has also opposed development projects in the park, namely the proposed resort at Big Tupper Ski Area. “A clear and compelling argument was made that Peter ’s affiliation as a member of the board of directors of an environmental group that had just sued the APA was not the right fit,” Little said. “It presented a conflict of interest.” Little led opposition to Hornbeck’s appointment in the Environmental Conservation Committee, which ultimately approved his nomination Feb. 22 despite concerns from many committee members. The committee’s chair, Antoine Thompson (D-Buffalo) said Paterson had called repeatedly in an attempt to expedite Hornbeck’s appointment. Jason Koppel, chief of staff to Senate Finance Committee Chairman Carl Kruger, said last week that Paterson’s choice of Hornbeck is undergoing an in-depth review following the conflict of interest claims. Koppel stressed the appointment is still under review and not officially defeated. He also noted that finance has hundreds of appointments on its docket and the approval process is backlogged several months. On Tuesday, finance approved 24 appointments, some dating back as far as April 2009. Hornbeck’s rejection would allow Lussi to remain in his seat until he or another nominee is approved. Little, together with many other local leaders, has been calling for his reappointment. “As I’ve said before, Art Lussi has done a good job in the one term he has served as an APA commissioner and a second term is something I’m confident many people would support,” Little said. WNBZ’s Jon Alexander contributed to this report
