riting a local column has turned out to be a great way to meet some very interesting people. Take today, for example. I just got off the phone with a man named Douglas Brooks, who has devoted his life to the craft and history of small wooden boatbuilding. You’ll have a chance to meet Douglas Brooks and learn about the rich history of Lake Champlain ferries (including our own ferry at Barber’s Point) on Sunday, April 3, at 3 p.m., when he and Westport resident Jim Bullard will give a multi-media presentation at the Westport Heritage House entitled “Forgotten Ferries of Lake Champlain.” The talk, which features lots of photos and maps, is brought to you by the Westport Historical Society. I’ve heard we can expect similar collaborations between the society and the Heritage House in the future. Doug and Jim (who used to own and operate the ferry at Ti) have already given this presentation in Ti and Lake Placid, and both times the turnout was heavy. In fact, they’re

already getting inquiries from people who’ve heard about their upcoming appearance here and are interested in having them come and repeat the performance elsewhere. One thing that makes it especially interesting is that when they give their talk there are generally people in the audience with a personal connection to the ferries and people who appear in the photos. I’m looking forward to hearing what our own local experts have to contribute. I also met a very smart man named Richard Aberle recently, who teaches English at SUNY Plattsburgh. He will be giving a lecture entitled “What’s Love Got to Do With It? The Love of Rhetoric and the Rhetoric of Love” at the Wadhams Free Library on Wednesday, March 30, at 7:30 p.m. Richard did his doctoral work at Berkeley and McGill and is working on a book about modernist rhetoric and the poetry of Robert Frost and Wallace Stevens. Both of these fascinating presentations are free. I’m thinking, maybe we should combine them a double feature. We could call it The Love Boat. Sorry, folks.

f you haven’t already seen it, go to and check out the town’s new website. It has a modern design, it’s very easy to use and it’s full of information about our town and the goings on herein. You can read town board meeting minutes, find out about local farms, see what’s happening at the Grange and find the film society’s schedule. This is a comprehensive source of information in an up to date format, and we have Jennifer Pribble to thank for the design work and Olive Alexander and many others for making it happen. The old site is still there, but it’s defunct, drifting in cyberspace. This morning I let Ginny out in the morning gloom and heard for the first time this year the insect-like buzzing of the American woodcock. The woodcock (Scolopax minor) is found all over the northern hemisphere, a shore bird that lives on the edges of forests and a flaming exhibitionist when it comes to attracting mates. The male’s call is a short buzzing sound, or “peent”, repeated intermittently, followed by a flight that spirals up and

Rob Ivy • up while its wing feathers make an otherworldly fluttering sound. When the bird is nearly out of sight, he plummets zigzagging down to the ground, where the buzzing starts again. Now for some more on Plattsburgh’s Lozier cars, which were built there for about 10 years in the early 1900’s. Early car manufacturers used racing as a means of advertising their products, as is true today. Lozier, unlike its rivals, did not build cars just for racing, but used stock models with the fenders and other extraneous items removed. They succeeded because they were very well built, and although not particularly fast, they were always running at the end of the race. Investors from Detroit took notice and convinced the family to relocate to Detroit to compete with America’s other luxury brands, Packard and Cadillac. They built a huge new factory there, spent way too much on it, and could not find a way to make quality cars at a reasonable price. It just wasn’t in them to make anything other than the very best, and by 1915 they were finished, unable to keep up with the times.


pring has sprung and thankfully the Boquet River has gone out quite peacefully, it is always a big relief for us to see the open running water. Our snowbanks have gone down at least by half the size and we are seeing some of our flowers poking their heads through the ground, and buds on the trees is a welcome sign. This last weekend was another busy one that it was not possible for us to take it all in, the dinner theater at the Methodist Church, square dance at Whallonsburg Grange Hall, the Champlain Valley presented a great movie all on the same evening. I went to the dinner show “March Madness,” this was a most delightful evening of entertainment and a wonderful meal. The group will be presenting the performance once again on Saturday, March 26 at 5 p.m. There are still a few tickets available for this event, call Janice Allen (9638912) to save you a place. Another highlight for our community took place on Friday, March 18, it was the early opening of the new Center for the Arts, Freeform. Drew & Elizabeth Belois

have started this center. At this opening they exhibited the Willsboro Central School students art work in many different mediums, it was most impressive. Elizabeth is the school art director and the daughter of the local dentist, Mr. & Mrs. David Bonfante. The studio is located in the space that was once Rick’s restaurant so watch for a more formal summer opening. It is great that our school can offer the students more than just sports, but also the arts. Rev. McPheeters is taking a few days vacation time, this coming Sunday while he is away the congregation has asked Yvonne Pierce to come during the regular service and share some of what they encountered on a recent trip to Egypt. Anyone that would care to hear her is most welcome to come join us at 9 a.m. Happy Birthday to Richard Sayward March 27, Barbara McKaig March 28, Marlene Young March 29, Patty James March 29, Win Belanger March 29, Ann Choate March 30, Tracie Gay March 30, Bob McVicker March 31, Ashley Whalen April 1, Carson Sayward April 2.



t is now officially spring and as I write I’m looking out the window as snow falls with expectations of three to five inches. Yep, it’s definitely spring in the North Country — we are getting single digit of snow rather than 20 plus inches. I’ve always felt , especially as a fairly large man, that it is much easier to get warm in the winter than it is to cool off in the summer, so I won’t complain ... much. Since spring has sprung, it is time to look at our yards and maybe consider taking part in the annual garden contest. If you are like me and a garden is a new concept, now is definitely the time to start planning. You need to consider what you want to plant and where you want to plant it. Keep in mind plants need varying amounts of sunshine and different local critters enjoy the free meals we are working so hard to grow, and it certainly isn’t a tip they are leaving behind.

New this year is another contest. Now in the newsletter that came with my water bill it said that this is in lieu of the flower contest, so I need to check with the town if there will even be a garden contest this year. There definitely will be a paving stone contest this year. The stones must be two foot squares only and start with a concrete base. Judging will be based on creativity, originality, and how colorful you can make the stone. Eight lucky, or more to the point talented, residents will earn cash prizes. Any further information call the village office at 834-9059 and ask for Lynn or Mary. I would like to thank the kind souls who have formed a committee to consider what to do with the abandoned civic center. We have enough empty space sitting unused. I wish them well on making the building or space productive again. Have a great week and enjoy the start of spring, hopefully without a shovel or plow!

NORTHCOUNTRYSPCA Kathy L. Wilcox • 962-8604


his week, the NCSPCA would like to announce Birds of Prey, a presentation by Mark Manske of Adirondack Raptors, and Wendy Hall, of the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge & Rehabilitation Center. The presentation will take place at the Whallonsburg Grange on Friday, April 15th at 7:00 p.m. Suggested minimum donations are $5.00 per adult; children under the age of 12 are free. All proceeds will benefit the NCSPCA. Visitors will have a unique opportunity to meet some of these extraordinary creatures and learn up close about the lives and behaviors of birds of prey. Mark has been banding raptors for the past 25 years; he is also a public school educator, a falconer, a New York State licensed nuisance wildlife control officer, an adjunct college professor at Paul Smiths College, and a retired wildlife re-

habilitator. Our featured pet this week is Sasha, a beautiful calico cat with stunning markings. Upon arrival to the NCSPCA, she quickly became the resident "office cat" and you will often find her greeting visitors as they pass through our doors. Sasha is declawed and, as a result, should reside in a home where she is not permitted to go outdoors, as she will not be able to defend herself. This pretty lady seems to get along well with everybody, but she is more of an inquisitive observer than the center of the action. You can be sure if there is any news of note, she will have the scoop! If you are looking for an intelligent, indoor-only feline with a great personality, Sasha may be the cat your are looking for! Why not stop by today to introduce yourself? You'll be glad you did.

Area school districts should merge administrative functions



Just because we can, doesn’t mean we should When it comes to health car e, we need to think about this phrase: “Just because we can, doesn’t necessarily mean we should.” Not many years ago, physicians had a limited array of testing available to make a diagnosis. In the past couple of decades, however, the number, variety and complexity of testing has expanded exponentially. Beyond X-rays, we now have computer -

And we have developed whole diagnostic testing laboratories, where we can obtain tissue samples via percutaneous routes that in the past would have required major surgery. With each advance in testing, a new pr otocol for defining when and how to use these tests arises and becomes a “standard of care.” Last year, there was a major conflict when the Institute of Medicine came out with a much less vigorous set of guidelines for doing mammography testing. Why the less vigor ous guidelines? First of all, mammograms wer e r esulting in many false pos itives that r esulted in the need for more testing and caused significa nt anxiety among the women who were faced with these additional tests. Secondly, there was strong evidence that the age and fr equency guidelines were not significantly detecting more cancers or doing it sooner to save lives. There was an immediate outcry from many that we should not change the guidelines. Many women testified that they were alive because they were tested under the older guidelines. In males, the pr ostate-specific antigen, or PSA, is a test that has become nearly standard See DOCTOR, Page 7

or years, schools acr oss ups t a t e N e w Yo r k h a v e p ro claimed ambitious mission statements about preparing students for the ever -evolving challenges expected during the 21st century. At the same time, soaring fuel prices, along with ballooning school employee benefit expenses, ar e boosting the cost of education. Coupled with a shrinking population — school districts acr oss the Adirondacks have lost more than 30 p e rc e n t o f t h e i r e n r o l l m e n t i n 3 0 years — the cost per student to educate childr en in many districts has s o a re d , w h i l e f a m i l i e s f a c e e v e r higher school taxes and incr eased costs of living. The state Commission for Pr operty T ax Relief notes that school districts in the Adirondacks have an average student population one-thir d less than the statewide average, and their cost per pupil can be up to five times higher than the statewide average. Throughout the Adirondacks, citizens have hear d about school district consolidation as a way to save money while offering a higher quality education. An in-depth study recently concluded that consolidating school districts in the state with fewer than 900 students would result in an annual savings of $158.5 to $189.2 million. But consolidating schools has its serious drawbacks — including exhaustive bus rides and tearing apart a community’s fabric of life. T h e re ’ s a b e t t e r w a y t o a c h i e v e greater efficiency and save taxpayer money while r etaining all the benefits of a hometown school — and that’s merging or sharing school districts’ administrative functions. According to the Adirondack Park Regional Assessment Pr oject study, only 17 percent of schools’ administrative services ar e shar ed in the Adirondacks. Meanwhile, total K-12 enrollment has decreased an average of 329 students per year, with even steeper declines recently. While school principals have sitespecific pr oblems to strategize, schools’ top administrators — the superintendent and business manager — have more abstract decisions to make, decisions mor e suitable to generalist, regional solutions. Newcomb Central offers a dramatic example of the pr evailing tr end. T h e y ’ v e s u f f e re d a 5 4 p e r c e n t d e cline in students since 1980, yet they are now spending about $61,000 per

student for their education. Or consider Indian Lake Central. It has dropped steadily to 170 students K-12, yet its annual budget has increased to $4.56 million, and its cost per student has risen to $25,553. The district, however, has a full-time superintendent, business manager and another top administrator plus a principal. In 2009, the salaries of these four employees totaled $307,870 — all bankr olled by local taxpayers. In Minerva, the six school administrators earn a collective $367,483 to serve a mer e 100 or so students. But Minerva and New comb Central have taken one small step toward mer ging administrations, and a p p a re n t l y i t ’ s w o r k e d o u t w e l l . They share a business manager, a position that routinely pays $75,000 in rural areas and far more elsewhere. The idea of consolidating administrative functions has gained some traction nationwide. In Ohio, a top business leader is now ur ging the state politicians to have only one set of school administrators in each county, a move that that is estimated to save the state $781 million annually. His pr oposal is based on an exhaustive study and its findings of considerable success for the move in Virginia, wher e ther e is one school district per county . A similar campaign is active in Pennsylvania. Former Hadley/Luzerne Su perintendent Len Gereau, who went on to become a regional superintendent in Virginia, and is now serving as an educational consultant to the state, said this week that mer ging administrative functions of fers considera b l e a d v a n t a g e s i n e f f i c i e n c y. B u t two main obstacles exist, he warned — existing state laws, plus the political will of citizens, leaders and voters of each school district.Apparentl y, l o c a l c i t i z e n s a n d t h e i r s c h o o l boards don’t like to give up control. Yet taxpayers urgently need relief, and such parochialism must end. It’s time that state laws be changed to enable such consolidation, and school boards throughout the region take a close look at merging or sharing school district administrative services.

What adults? To the Valley News: Could I answer your question in Friday’s Valley News? You wonder where the adults have gone, They haven’t gone anywhere because they never developed in the first place. Think of the child in the market cart, reaching for an attractive package and screaming, “Cause I want it!” W ell, those children are older but not grown up. They still want it, and they want it now.

He said development is vital to their success, noting that the ACR pr oject would be “essential to our ability to sustain our business.” Sheila Larkin is a business owner fro m Tupper Lake. “I believe ther e have been good questions brought up and good compro mises made over the years,” she said. “Now , the APA knows what they need to know and should not be appealed at every step of the way , again and again, to stall this project.” The few criticisms of the project came from the park’s envir onmental leaders. Dave Gibson of Adirondack Wild said ther e’s still an opportunity to redesign the project “without landscape fragmentation and without violating resource management guidelines.” Several speakers insisted that the envir onmental gr oups wer e standing in the way of progress.

TUPPER LAKE — The L.P. Quinn Elementary School cafeteria was packed the afternoon of March 16 during a public hearing over the proposed Adirondack Club & Resort project in Tupper Lake. Dozens o f c ommunity m embers, b usiness owners, p oliticians a nd o ther l eaders f rom throughout the Adirondacks spoke during the afternoon and evening hearings. The overwhelming majority wer e in support of the Adirondack Club and Resort pro ject proposed for the Big Tupper Ski Area. Melissa McManus of the Tupper Lake Revitalization Committee asked the state Adirondack Park Agency to send a message that “appropriate development can happen here, that Adirondacks ar e still open for business and that there is in fact hope for Adirondack communities like Tupper Lake.” APA Chairman Curt Stiles and several commissioners attended the meeting, as did lead developer Michael Foxman and his partners. Many of the speakers at the hearing cited the economic woes in Tupper Lake, including the lack of jobs, the decline of once thriving industries and the closure of many local businesses in their appeal for a speedy APA approval of the project. Supporters ar gued that the r esort, which would include a revamped ski area and a subdivision, would bring in hundreds of jobs and

Catholics discuss future in North Country By Dan Alexander

Lydia Wuest, Caleb Cauthorn and Josh Bassler pose in front of the White House during the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Essex County 4-H/Wonders of Washington educational trip.

PORT HENRY — Approximately 80 parishioners from Catholic churches in the Essex Deanery g athered i n P ort H enry M arch 2 0 to l earn more about the Diocesan planning due to the pending shortage of priests. Sister Je nnifer Votraw, who serves as the Planning Committee Director, pr esented an overview to bring paris h members up to date on the curr ent direction of the committee and to obtain input from those in attendance. With age being the single most important factor, the Diocese of Ogdensburg was served by 92 resident pastors in 1998, according to Votraw. In 2011, their numbers were reduced to 62, and within the next 10 years, it is anticipated that number will dr op to appr oximately 40 r esident pastors serving over 100 parishes, covering 12,000 square miles. Eighty-five per cent of the parishes curr ently share a pastor. Votraw pointed out that there will be 22 parishes that will not have a r esident pastor, which may result in the closing or reduction of liturgical services provided at some churches. In the past 12 years, 12 churches have merged at the request of the parishioners making up those churches. Currently, the Essex Deanery is made up of churches in Crown Point, Elizabethtown, Olmstedville, Port Henry, Schroon Lake, Ticonderoga, Essex, Westport and Willsboro. Five resident pastors currently serve the deanery. Within 10 years, the diocese and the parishioners may be for ced to consider how those communities will be served with as little as three resident pastors. Long-term plans call for pastors to be located in Elizabethtown, Port Henry and Ticonderoga with the

parishes sharing their services. While no plans have been finalized, the reality of an aging priest population, not just in the Ogdensburg Diocese but nationwide, must be faced by the church. It anticipates a 35 per cent reduction in priests within the next 25 years. At the same time, growth in the overall Catholic population is expected. Votraw said that the Midwest region of the United States has been faced with a priest shortage for years and has still managed to serve the faithful. As one parishioner pointed out, the situation is not unlike the story of the Loaves of Bread and Fishes, where Christ fed thousands with only seven loaves of bread and five fishes. Father Peter Riani, Essex Dean, pointed out that the discussion needs to be focused on maintaining a vibrant parish community regardless of the location residence of the priest. It is expected that lay members of the chur ch will need to assist in gr eater ways than in the past. Currently, the diocese has more than 800 commissioned lay ministers. Discussion from those in attendance touched on s ubjects s uch a s a llowing p riests t o m arry, women priests, the need for mor e deacons and their r ole in a communion service, Episcopal priests who ar e married and have converted to Catholicism, using technology that would allow for the Mass to be viewed live via the Internet at churches, realigning the deanery boundaries, and encouraging gr eater youth participation in the church. Votraw encouraged the discussions to be taken back to each parish and continue to send their thoughts and suggestions to her in Ogdensburg. Interested parties may find mor e information regarding the Diocesan Planning Committee at ml and may email Sister V otraw at

Community Store set to open

Saranac Lake tentative budget shows increase

Group reaches fundraising goal

By Chris Morris SARANAC LAKE — The interim board of directors of the Community Store in Saranac Lake announced recently that it has reached its capital investment goal and will open sometime this summer. Board members made the announcement March 16 at the former Corvo’s r estaurant, the future site of the shareholder-owned department store. The ef fort to open a community-owned department store in Saranac Lake launched in the summer of 2007, four years after the closure of the Ames department store. At the time, the all-volunteer board of directors had high hopes of reaching its $500,000 capital goal quickly. What they didn’t anticipate was a sever e economic downturn that ravaged markets and had business owners closing their doors rather than staging grand openings. But the Community Store’s interim president, Melinda Little, says that even though it took longer than expected, investors finally came through. According to Little, the funds raised over the last four years will now be er leased from escrow, allowing the company to enter into

financial commitments. “This is going to let us sign a lease,” she said. “And we are in negotiations right now with Gr eg Moor e, who owns this building, the old Corvo’s restaurant. We expect that to come to a conclusion very shortly.” Additionally, the investments can be used to begin hiring key positions for the stor e, such as manager and assistant manager. The boar d’s interim vice pr esident, Gail Brill, says r eaching the $500,000 mark is a huge relief. “I feel good,” she said. “It’s been a long four years, but we were always secure in the fact that the community would rally in support of the store — and they have.” With the initial fund raising phase complete, the company is permitted to continue collecting shares, up to $600,000, until June. Alan Br own is interim tr easure for the Community Store. He says some 600 investors donated an average of $800 each — the minimum shar e price was $100. The largest single investment of $20,000 came from a Saranac Lake family , although the board said it could not identify specific donors. The next step is to hir e staff and convert the former r estaurant, located on Main Street in the heart of Saranac Lake, into a department store. With about 5,000 square feet of available space, Gail Brill anticipates the business will featur e a wide array of pr oducts.

SARANAC LAKE - The tentative 201 12012 budget for the village of Saranac Lake shows taxes increasing by some 3.7 percent. Village Manager John Sweeney filed paperwork for next year ’s fiscal plan late last week. Under village law, trustees can adopt the tentative budget as is or make further cuts through board action. Sweeney says numerous economic trends had to be taken into account in drafting the upcoming budget, which featur es $4.8 million in expenditures.

That an increase of seven percent, or about $314,000, over the current year ’s budget. $3.4 million of the budget would be raised by taxes as opposed to $3.2 million in the current year , amounting to a tax levy increase of 3.7 percent. Sweeney told trustees that federal stimulus efforts have stabilized the economy, but have not resulted in any subsequent growth. He notes that the village is only experiencing “limited growth” in revenue. Sweeney notes that a 16 per cent increase in health insurance costs is likely in the next two years. Retirement costs will increase by about 24 percent.

Teen Intervene training set ELIZABETHTOWN — In the past 25 years, the Pr evention T eam has br ought many innovative programs to Essex County. In keeping with this commitment to bring the best possible services for youth, families and communities, the Pr evention Team is now of fering training in T een Intervene, a brief intervention for substance using/abusing adolescents and young adults. Teen Intervene targets youth in non-treatment settings and can be used by a wide range of professional staff. The goal of Teen Intervene is to reach youth and young adults in alternative community settings befor e they need longer term, more intensive help. A Pr evention T eam staf f member was trained as a trainer as part of a federal training initiative. A training scholarship was funded by the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Agency (SAMHSA) to participate in this Training of Trainers pilot program. The NYS Of fice of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) selected the

participants and is coor dinating the pr ogram, developed by Hazelden and Dr . Ken Winters of the University of Minnesota. As health care reform trickles down to the community level there will be an increasing emphasis on using focused, short-term, evidence-based interventions like T een Intervene. And as we all try to incr ease our effectiveness with individuals we serve, Teen Intervene will enable those trained in it to help youth in many mor e settings than before. Workshops ar e of fered fr ee to medical staff, education, mental health and criminal justice pr ofessionals, youth workers and pastors. Professionals using the intervention on a r egular basis in a clinic or school will need to buy the curriculum and protocol. Training workshops are one day. The first two full day workshops are: March 31: Adirondack Medical Center , Saranac Lake April 1: InterLakes Health Campus, Moses Ludington Hospital, Ticonderoga Students in r elated fields will be accommodated in training sessions based on space availability. Class space is extremely limited but r egistration is still available. Split sessions will be accommodated. To register and obtain materials, or to get more information contact the Pr evention Team at 585-7424 ext. 106 or email linda@ Advance registration is required.
