Essex County gets new public defenders By Lindsay Yandon lindsay@denpubs.com

Brandon Boutelle is sworn-in by Essex County Clerk Joe Provoncha while Evelyn Hatch holds the Bible. Boutelle was appointed chief public defender for Essex County following the death of Livingston Hatch.

ELIZABETHTOWN — In early January, Lake Placid resident Brandon Boutelle was appointed to chief public defender for Essex County after the sudden death of longtime public defender Livingston “Livy” Hatch of Willsboro. Boutelle accepted a salary of $92,000 and a two-year term in the seat. His appointment received final approval from the Board of Supervisors in February. He has ben serving under Hatch as deputy public defender since January of 2005. Boutelle had only positive things to say about the work of his well-respected predecessor and said he appreciated the opportunity to work with someone with over 40 years of law experience.

ELIZABETHTOWN — If you thought the state’s budget outlook was bad, a glance at Essex County’s upcoming 2011 budget process is sure to garner a cringe as a 30 percent tax hike could be looming. County officials stressed this week that everything that can potentially be cut is on the table, including employee pay freezes, a sales tax hike and privatizing the county-owned Horace Nye Nursing Home. According to Essex County Manager Dan Palmer, the county is likely to fall $7 million short in 2011. In recent years, supervisors have dipped into the county’s fund balance to make up the difference and buy down the tax levy. But that fund is now depleted. Palmer says using any more than $3 million from the county’s reserves could threaten its credit rating. “We had hoped the sales tax figures would have come in better than they did in 2009,” Palmer said. Although only in the second year of a four-year deal with the Civil Service Employees Union, a contractual clause that requires the reopening of negotiations if and when national health care is passed will bring the parties to the table on April 19. “We need a pay freeze, across the board,” Palmer said. Stripping Essex County’s 400 employees of their already guaranteed four percent increase would save $1.3 million. County officials are predicting health insurance costs alone will skyrocket 20 to 25 percent. Supervisors are also considering a one-quarter percent increase in sales tax, which could

Essex County IDA to launch new “Buy Local” campaign CROWN POINT — The Essex County Industrial Development Agency (IDA) has developed a program to assist local businesses who have endured a loss of revenue as a result of the unexpected closing of the Lake Champlain Bridge in Crown Point, New York on October 16, 2009. The program evolved from meetings held in late 2009 with businesses in the Towns of Moriah, Crown Point and Ticonderoga coordinated by the Essex County IDA in conjunction with Empire State Development. “We gathered information and input from the local business owners’ perspectives at these meetings to determine how best to address this unanticipated loss of commerce in those communities,” said Carol Calabrese, Co-Executive Director of the Essex County IDA. “We used this information to submit a marketing proposal to Empire State Development, and were successful in receiving an award of $50,000 to develop and implement a marketing campaign to attract consumers and ease economic strain in the communities that were most severely affected by the bridge closure.” The new program promotes local businesses to local residents of both New York and Vermont with the theme: “Lets bridge together and buy local. Visit ShopChamplain.com. Together, we can keep our communities thriving.” “The “Buy Local” program allows residents to pitch in and directly help their neighborhood businesses by encouraging them with creative incentives to shop and dine at local establishments,” said Empire State Development Chairman and CEO designate Dennis M. Mullen. “The Towns of Moriah, Crown

Point and Ticonderoga depend heavily upon the success of these small businesses, which are still facing tremendous challenges as a result of the unanticipated loss of customers due to the Champlain Bridge closure. I’m pleased that Empire State Development and the Essex County IDA have partnered together to offer the community an opportunity to become a part of the solution as we work towards sustainable economic recovery in the region.” The campaign begins this week, and includes a 4-color promotional brochure promoting the “Buy Local” program, which will be available at participating businesses, local Chambers of Commerce, at information centers along the I87 corridor and at the ferry landing in Crown Point. In addition to the brochure, local newspaper, radio, and billboard advertisements will drive consumers to the website where they can download and print coupons that are redeemable at participating local merchants. “The online coupons represent value-added opportunities for consumers, such as a percentage off retail prices or buy one, get one free promotions,” said Calabrese. “The online mechanism allows merchants to add their own coupons to promote their products.” Along with the brochure, printed $1 OFF coupons will be distributed at the Crown Point ferry landing along with the “Buy Local” brochures. The $1 OFF coupons allow consumers $1 off any purchase of $5 or more at participating businesses in Crown Point, Moriah and Ticonderoga. The participating businesses will then be reimbursed one dollar for each of the $1 OFF any

purchases of $5 coupons they collect. Upon notification of the award of the marketing funds, Essex County IDA hosted workshops to advise local businesses about how they might strengthen their current customer base and attract new customers, and to provide technical assistance and explain how they can take advantage of the “Buy Local” program. The campaign is a collaborative effort between the IDA and the Regional Office of Sustainable Tourism. Merchants in Crown Point, Moriah and Ticonderoga who are not already taking advantage of the program are invited to participate, and encouraged to contact Suzanne Maye at the Lake Champlain Visitors Center at 518.597.4649.

ere's a green thought for Spring: Wouldn't it be great if Westport had a Community Garden? A place where wholesome organic food could be grown on a cooperative basis, with the help and for the benefit of the community as a whole? Where gardening workshops could be held, and where elderly or disabled gardeners could work alongside younger or able-bodied folks in a mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and experience for strength and stamina? It looks we now have a chance to make this wonderful idea into a reality, at least if Pastor Leon Hebrink of the Westport Federated Church has anything to say about it. Working with the Future for Westport Quality of Life Committee, Pastor Leon has developed a plan to expand on the already established garden area behind the church, as well as to coordinate the creation of additional raised beds and container gardens in other spots around town, using community volunteers and local materials. The concept is aimed at responding to the needs of those who don't have access to gardens, or who require a handicapped-accessible layout, but it's also about sharing food and other resources, reducing our carbon footprint, and forging stronger bonds between different age groups as well as between seasonal and year-round residents. The concept also calls for seed-swap and seed-donation programs (ditto for plants and tools); the establishment of a common compost area (to which local restaurants may contribute organic refuse); a plan for

Kathy L. Wilcox • 962-8604 • www.ncspca.org

distributing food to the hungry (and for home gardeners to pitch in with contributions of their own crops); and gardening workshops on subjects such as herbal lore, children's gardening, and canning. What a great way to bring us together. In fact, the phrase "Community Garden" tells you not just who's doing the growing, but what's being grown as well. If you're interested in helping grow our community, contact Pastor Leon at 962-8293. Pastor Leon is also involved in another project: the Westport/Wadhams Greek Society, which has just been founded by Westport resident John Roemischer. Dedicated to the study of the Ancient Greek language, the society offers free lessons in Ancient Greek as well as lectures and discussions on how Greek has influenced not just the English language, but Western religion and culture as a whole. (Hint: the New Testament is written in Greek—hence Pastor Leon's expertise.) Having studied Ancient Greek myself, I've been invited to join the group and will be honored to participate. Other members include Scarlet Moore, Tommy Maron, and Shannon Wheeler. This should be really fun and we're looking for more members, especially students from Westport Central School. If you or someone you know might be interested, e-mail John at johnroemischer@gmail.com or drop me a line at the above address. Next week: a report on this week's public information meeting on the proposed joint-use municipal building project.

S

pring has brought us the time of year again when homeless cats in our area seem to multiply. Many people inadvertantly encourage the growth of these feral cat colonies by feeding them. Before they know it, there are two to three times more than they started with. It is easy to see how quickly the numbers can multiply! In fact, the number of feral cats in the United States is estimated to be in the tens of millions. The ASPCA endorses trapping(gently), neutering, and returning these wild felines to their environment. So how do I capture a wild creature that won't even allow me to get close to it? First, you need to acquire a humane trap. Hav-a-Hart is a source to purchase a trap, or you can contact the NCSPCA to borrow one. Trap only in a dry, temperate area. Do not feed the cats for at least 8 hours before trapping - they must be hungry to enter the trap. Inform any neighbors prior to setting up the trap - they may want to keep their own kitties indoors for the duration. Tuna and canned cat food work well in traps. Place the food inside the release bar at the back of the trap so the cat is sure to step on the trigger plate when eating. Place a sheet or towel over the trap so the cat feels secure to reduce anxiety. Transport the trapped cat to your veterinarian for spaying and neutering immediately upon capture. Ask that the cat be ear-tipped – have the tip of one ear snipped during sur-

Seltzer gery – to help future rescuers identify him. This is a painless and risk-free procedure. If you are concerned about the cost of neutering the feral cat, ask your veterinarian about possible reduced costs - often your expense can be lowered significantly, and you will have the satisfaction of knowing you have contributed to reducing the growth of your feral cat community. Our featured pet this week is Seltzer, and American Eskimo Dog-mix. He came to the shelter with his friend Spritz. His previous owner was no longer interested in caring for the two dogs. Seltzer has a great, laid back personality, sweet gentle eyes, and adores attention. True to his name, he is is an effervescent fellow who always makes you smile. If you might have room in your home for two, he would love to become a family member with his friend.

y dog Ginny and I made our weekly trip into the hamlet to snoop around and seek out tidbits for this column. We stopped at the old store and spoke to owner John Doyle, who was busy painting the doorway. He said he’s got to have the renovations finished by May 1, when a business selling gifts and antiques will be moving in. We next stopped at the town bulletin board by the post office and found several out of date postings, which I removed. There was also an unclaimed census form, an advertisement for a handyman from Plattsburgh and even a menu from a restaurant in Keeseville. It seems the bulletin board should address local, temporary items or events and not act as a permanent place to advertise. Thus, I removed the handyman and menu and did a bit of rearranging to make the bulletin board less chaotic. By the way, the town road crew did a very nice job cleaning the winter grunge from the streets of the hamlet. I’ve been listening to a CD of bird songs

Janice Allen • 963-8912 • allens@willex.com

and calls in an effort to identify some of the dozens of different birds here in Reber. Ginny and I were running errands and listening to our CD the other day when we stopped at the vet’s for some heartworm medicine. We saw a pair of golden retriever puppies who Ginny wanted to boss around, being mostly border collie, and a tiny Chihuahua not much bigger than your hand. We took our leave, got back in the car, and were badly startled by loud crow cawing coming from the back seat. Ginny jumped into my lap, heading for the open window, when I remembered the bird CD. I turned down the crows, got Ginny calmed down and made it home safely. Coming up on April 24 will be a showing of the movie “The Cove” at the Whallonsburg Grange. The show starts at 8 p.m. and is rated PG-13. “The Cove,” which won an Academy Award, is a documentary about a group of dolphins and the people who try to protect them. On April 22, go to the Grange for a town board meeting. It starts at 7 p.m. and is unrated.

ow exciting it is to welcome in spring; it is a real gift from our creator as we watch nature burst forth into new life. The forsythia bushes are all a glow and in full bloom. The daffodils are springing up in many yards. One of the most outstanding views is to see all the daffodils that Leanna DeNeal planted along each side of her driveway on Route 22. Another great sight is to watch the trees start to leaf out. Our joy for spring also brought much sadness as we laid to rest John Sheehan, but the funeral was a great tribute to who he had been as a part of this community. Between his family and his employees, they really did an outstanding job of making this last tribute one that we will all remember. Another great friend and much admired person passed away this past week: John Remancus, who lived a full 99 years and was our oldest veteran in the community. I had the pleasure of being a waitress in the diner that he and Harold Perkett ran for several years; what a great person. These are two citizens that have brought much pride to all of us over the years and will be greatly missed in the days ahead. Several family members of Virginia Tingley Blanchard attended her wake and funeral this past weekend down in South Glens Falls. Her family came from far and near to pay their last respects. We also learned of Art Butler Jr ’s passing in March, he was part of our Heritage Group. I had some very enjoyable visits this past week with Rita Benedict who is now home after her last knee surgery. A dear friend, Florence La Mountain, has returned to her home after spending the winter with her two sons. She loves her home and is delighted to be back. Another great visit was

with Joyce Blanchard; she does not get out very much but loves to have visitors and we had a great visit. I had a surprise visit from the youngest daughter of Clarence and Helen Stafford, Becky Swenson, and her husband. They were doing family genealogy and visiting local cemeteries. They also brought me some historical items from their family, pictures and other printed items, what a delight to visit with them. Each week more and more of our locals that go away for the winter seem to be returning. I learned that John Carver has returned from Oklahoma City where he had been visiting his son Johnny Carver and his family for six weeks. The latest production presented by the Willsboro Drama Club was performed his past weekend, it was titled “The Last Four Years.” This was performed by two actors and a five- or six-piece orchestra telling the whole story in song. It was a great performance and displayed remarkable skills by the two singers. Their next production will be in May with a play titled “Wit.” The Willsboro School Alumni will be meeting Monday, April 19, 7:30 p.m. in the Visitor ’s Center. Any interested alumni are welcome to attend to help make plans for this year ’s annual banquet this June. Pok-O-Mac-Cready has some very interesting programs being planned for the spring season, be sure to look for one of their recent news letter that are around town, I found mine on the Post Office Bulletin Board.

Health care reform worth the expense

Tim Sherman, Westport

To the editor, I do not believe that second guessing the CBO is the best way to consider the merits of the Health Care Bill. I rather think that the CBO gets the best data available and does a credible job with it, but is that the most effective way of considering Bill Owen's vote? If your child needed life or death health care, would you argue over how much debt that would cause for you? Would you pick the cheapest plan, regardless of the quality of care? Most people would agree that the whole health care mess is very complex, and yet we need action. Our country's health care system is imploding. The plan that was passed had lots of compromises in it and still barely made it through. Do you really want nothing done? I think Bill Owens was courageous in voting for what he believes is best. I am sure he has many reservations himself, but we can't hide our heads in the sand. Can we? Donald Austin, Elizabethtown

Vote ‘yes’ on WCS budget To the editor, Westport Central School has put together its budget for next year. It's a good balance of the cuts being pushed by some and the continuation of a high quality School sought by others. In the face of severe state aid cutbacks it only has an increase of 4.5 percent; $128,000. There is one staff member retiring that will not be replaced. Westport has earned its place as a top 1200 school in the nation, and continues as a draw for out of district students and new families coming into Westport. Commuting to P'burg is an easy trip up I-87. Despite our School Boards hard work, there is still a group of residents pushing to defeat this budget. If this budget fails we will go to contingency, meaning more cuts. Also all non-school-related activity will have to stop. No more Fireman's Supper, which also supports the ambulance squad. The Youth Commission Summer program, basketball, and possibly skiing would cease. Use by committees such as Future of Westport, and the Town would no longer be allowed. A whole variety of community sports activities would have to cease including the Tanneberger Tournament and fencing classes. It’s possible additional budget cuts could take out our extracurricular sports and academic pro-

Owens voted right on health care To the editor, I am writing in support of Representative Bill Owens' vote for the Health Care & Education Affordability Act of 2010. The letter of last week regarding the passage of this bill suggested that numbers were "crunched" to justify support for it. I have more faith in the Congressional Budget Office, which is a nonpartisan body. What was "crunched" leading up to the passage of this bill was the truth — by some Republican legislators, the right-wing media, and the insurance companies – who told blatant lies in their efforts to scare us and defeat the bill. Remember Death Panels? The ruin of Medicare? Government takeover? Fortunately the scare tactics did not succeed. Soon we will see the benefits of the Health Care Bill. For example, insurance companies will be unable to deny coverage because of serious illness or preexisting conditions, and will be unOutdoor Wood able to cancel coverage Gasification Furnace when an illness occurs.

Obesity: a weighty issue T

he incidence of school age obesity is increasing. Obesity in adulthood is at unprecedented levels. In Essex County, a variety of agencies and people are looking at the issue of obesity and Essex County Public Health Educator, Jessica Darney Buehler is one of those people. “Diets are restrictive and short lived; not terribly effective for most people,” said Buehler. “A paradigm shift to a lifestyle where achieving a healthy weight is a side effect of living healthfully is an approach with which most people find long lasting success. Joyful pleasures such as playing with your children, enjoying personal recreation or just walking may become exhausting with extra weight. Getting your body to do what you want it to do by fueling it with healthful foods and keeping active will result in a healthy weight.” While many adult Americans are overweight, the concerns for obese children are even greater. If they are overweight their entire lives, the health implications are very strong and very negative. According to Buehler, there are powerful environmental influences that favor gaining weight. “Our health decisions are influenced by our policies and environments,” she said. “Those influences include the communities in which we live, the child care facilities and schools in which our children learn, the places in which we

work, residential facilities that some of us call home and media and marketing to which we are all subject.” Reconstructing our environment and policies so that they support healthy living is crucial. Our changed view of smoking is a good example of By Scot Hurlburt a powerful environmental change. At one time 70% of adult Americans smoked and now only about 18% smoke. “Decreasing obesity will follow a similar track that the decline of smoking took,” Beuhler said. “We can construct a spectrum of prevention from which to address the issue from strengthening our individual knowledge, skills and decisions to collectively influencing policies and legislation.” “It won’t happen overnight, however; we must act now.” For more information about health, nutrition or obesity contact Jessica Darney Buehler at jdbuehler@co.essex.ny.us Remember, all kids count.

reader wrote in with a question about overage. It’s an issue many Super-Couponers ask me about.

“I recently printed some coupons for $2.50 off picture hanging hooks. Then, I saw the hooks on clearance for 99 cents. I was so excited to think that I would get the item for free and possibly make money. The checker and the manager weren’t going to let me use the coupon, but decided to give me the item for free, with 99 cents of the coupon’s value. When I told them that I thought the company reimburses the amount of the coupon to them and that they should give me the difference, they said that was not true. What do you think?” Whenever the value of a coupon exceeds the cost of the item a shopper buys, interesting things start to happen! Couponers refer to the difference between the cost of the item and the value of the coupon as “overage.” When a coupon exceeds the cost of an item, many stores will scan the coupon, give you the item for free and automatically apply the coupon overage to everything else you’re purchasing. If your stores allow overage, clearly, this can be a great way to reduce your entire bill! But it’s important to remember overage is a privilege, not a right. Stores also reserve the right to adjust the value of the coupon down to match the cost of the item, which is what happened to you. You still got your item for free but the coupon didn’t “pay you” to take it home. If you find yourself in a situation where you may have a negative total at the register, you must add other items to your shopping trip to “eat up” that overage before you start to check out, or you will have issues with the register. Most cash registers will lock up if they go into negative numbers, simply because the store can’t legally issue you that overage difference in cash. If you were only buying your 99-cent item with a $2.50 coupon, the register could not proceed. The cashier would have no choice but to adjust that coupon’s value down. Now, if you were purchasing additional items in the same transaction and your store allowed overage, that extra $1.51 would be automatically applied to the cost of the other items. Again, this is a privilege, not a right. We can never demand overage, but it’s definitely a big bonus of coupon shopping. Stores allow overage because they will be reimbursed for the full value of the coupon when they go to redeem it with

a manufacturer. So while your item costs 99 cents, when the coupon goes to the clearinghouse, a machine will calculate the total redemption the store will receive. Your coupon will deliver the store $2.50 in value. It’s important to remember when stores allow customers to use overage, they’re not losing money — they’re simply passing that savings onto the shopper. They will be reBy Jill Cataldo imbursed for the full amount of the coupon. If a store chooses to adjust a coupon’s value down to the point where the item you’re purchasing is free, but the store doesn’t “pay you” the remaining value of the coupon, the store keeps that overage difference for itself instead of passing it onto you. Again, it’s important to understand they’re well within their rights to do so. Using coupons at all is a privilege. Stores do not have to accept coupons, although most do. And stores do not have to allow you to receive coupon overage, either. Of course, the stores that allow us to keep our overage are among my favorites to shop! Remember, too, we can also get coupon overage via stacking coupons. If we stack one store and one manufacturer coupon together, the value of the two coupons together may also exceed the item’s cost. I bought a deodorant recently that was on sale for $2.19. I had a $1.50 store coupon and I also had a $1 manufacturer coupon. Stacking those two together gave me $2.50 savings on the deodorant. I took the deodorant home for free. The 31 cents in overage was applied to some bananas I bought in the same trip. Next week, we’ll discuss overage in conjunction with instant-savings deals at the store. These sales can be an excellent way for the store to “pay you to shop,” too — with overage you’re guaranteed to get!

John Ward Sheehan, Jr.

March 31, 2010

Dec. 17, 1960 - March 29, 2010

ELIZABETHTOWN — Joseph E. Boone, Captain (retired) New York State Police, age 82, passed away Wednesday, March 31st, 2010 at his winter home in West Palm Beach, Florida. Joe left high school at 17 to join the Navy because he was afraid the War would end before he could serve. He later completed high school and 2 years of college. During World War II, 1944-1946, he proudly served in the US Navy, traveling to the Pacific. He walked the Great Wall of China during his deployment. After he was discharged from the Navy, he returned to Long Island and worked as a carpenter building houses. He learned lifelong skills before joining the New York State Police. His career with law enforcement included 3 years with Nassau County Police Department. Joe started as a New York State Trooper in “B” Troop. During Joe’s 31 years of service with the New York State Police he worked at stations in Schroon Lake, Port Henry, Keeseville, and Malone. Joe served as a BCI Investigator in Malone, Sergeant/Station Commander in Westport, Zone Lieutenant in “K” Troop at Putnam Valley, Zone Lieutenant in “B” Troop at Saranac Lake and Plattsburgh, Uniform Captain in “F” Troop at Middletown, Uniform Captain in “B” Troop at Malone and Ray Brook. After more than 3 decades of serving New York State he retired in 1982. After retiring from the NYSP, he owned and operated Bouquet River Construction, building homes, additions and renovations. Joe had many years of practice on his own home and the homes of family and friends. Joe was elected as Town Justice for the Town of Lewis and he served in that capacity for many years. After serving as Town Justice he was elected Lewis Town Supervisor. During his tenure as Town Supervisor he was able to secure federal funding for many local projects, including funding for a new water system. During his service as Lewis Town Supervisor he was elected, by his peers, to be the Chairman of the Essex County Board of Supervisors. Joe loved his family and he enjoyed his life. He spent time playing golf, skiing, snowmobiling and motorcycling. He had a private pilot’s license and loved being on Lake Champlain where he took the helm as Captain of his power boat or sailboat. Joe enjoyed time at his camp in Willsboro on Lake Champlain. He enjoyed his retirement with his wife Margaret, residing in West Palm Beach during the winters and Elizabethtown during the summers. He loved reading, politics and his friends. His quick wit and sense of humor always brought a smile to the faces of family and friends. Survivors include his wife of 57 years, Margaret, his daughter, Patti Boone, LTC (ret), U.S. Army, of Alexandria, VA, and son Dr. Joseph Boone and his wife, Sheila of Lantana, FL. Asister, Rosemary Haroff, nephew Edward Haroff and his wife Linda, of Schroon Lake, NY, his niece Betty Ann Force and her husband Bill, of Charleston, IL, his niece, Jan Bigalow, and nephew, John Rowe, of Port Henry, NYand nephew Fred Rowe of Naples, FL.

Probe From page 1 In a letter to Cuomo, Paterson noted that no evidence of legal wrongdoing has surfaced, but he did authorize the Attorney General to probe the value assessment methodology employed in

the sale and the sway the Conservancy wields over Albany power brokers. “If you discover evidence of such criminality that warrants the expansion of this referral, we will consider expanding the scope to grant you that additional authority,” Paterson wrote. Cuomo’s spokesman said the probe also extends into the office of state Comptroller

TAYLOR FROZEN DESSERT & FAST FOOD SHOW April 18, Westside Ballroom, 253 New York Road Plattsburgh

SATURDAY April 17, 2010

Thomas DiNapoli, who holds the state’s purse strings. In 2008, the state bought a 20,000 acre Clinton County tract from the Nature Conservancy for $10 million, a $3.7 million increase over what the green group paid in 2005. Yet, according to the state Office of Real Property, property values in the region only increased 15 percent over that time period. The green group is currently trying to sell another 58,000 acres of central Adirondack land to the state. It’s part of a larger 150,000 acre tract the organization bought from Finch-Pruyn Paper for $110 million in 2007. Last year, the conservancy sold 92,000 acres to the Danish pension fund ATP Timberland Invest. In a recent interview, Nature Conservancy Executive Director Mike Carr and spokeswoman Connie Prickett said there’s often a markup associated to a land sale to the state. But they stressed the additional costs reflect not only rising property values, but also the time and money the organization invests in the land prior to the sale. “We have to get in and out of a project whole, but that’s not a profit,” Carr said. “We do leave millions of dollars in these projects,” Prickett added. Although the scope of the current investigation is limited to the single transaction, local officials have decried the conservancy’s markup policy for years. Adirondack Park Local Government Review Board Executive Director Fred Monroe said it appears state officials pay the extra amount to gain the favor of powerful environmentalists. “I believe there is a close relationship between the Nature Conservancy and the DEC. They were paid their carrying costs for the time they held the property for the state,” Monroe said. “It always seemed improper that the Conservancy

was acting as a purchasing agent for the state and having all of their costs covered. That’s not an arms-length deal.” Last month, local officials panned pleas from environmentalists to forgo their opposition to state land acquisition.

Tax Hike From page 1 generate about $2 million in revenue. Essex County Board of Supervisors Vice Chairman Roby Politi has renewed his calls for the privatization of Horace Nye, a potentially sticky proposition in the county’s eastern half. “We have to address the immediate solutions,” Politi said. “I know no one wants to talk about wage freezes or Horace Nye, but these are things that we are elected to address.” But Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafava isn’t buying the Horace Nye argument. “I’ve never had anyone complain about paying for the nursing home,” Scozzafava said. Horace Nye costs about $4 million a year to run. Palmer said the continued operation of the 100 bed facility all but assures at-least a 20 percent hike in taxes. Even with a $3 million fund balance buydown, county taxpayers face up to a 30 percent tax hike if significant cuts aren’t made. Essex County typically relies on about $21 million in sales tax to keep its two-dollar-perthousand property tax rate at the lowest level in the state. But the most recent year’s return fell $600,000 short of 2008 levels. Officials said staffing reductions may be eminent and are considering adopting a retirement incentive program.

Public Defender From page 1 “I don't know if I can fill his shoes, but I'm going to try,” Boutelle said. Boutelle is a graduate of Rochester Institute of Technology with a criminal-justice degree. He received his law degree from Albany Law School in 2000. Before coming to the public defender office, Boutelle worked with McPhillips, Fitzgerald & Cullum, L.L.P. in Glens Falls. Boutelle also served as a commissioned officer in the Navy JAG Corps, where he worked on defense in court marshal cases. He recently returned from Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp on active duty as a military defense attorney. He also served four years on active duty with the U.S. Navy's Judge Advocate General's Corps. The public defender office sees heavy case loads that have been handled solely by Boutelle since Hatch’s passing. He recently

appointed former Rensselaer County Assistant District Attorney Robert D. Seymour to assist as Essex County's new deputy public defender. The position has been vacant since Boutelle moved up to chief public defender and he welcomes the help. “We received over a dozen resumes. There was a lot of diversity and a good range of experience,” Boutelle said. The interview process narrowed it to two attorneys and Seymour started in late March on a salary of $58,000 a year. Seymour is originally from Malone and recently moved to Lake Placid. “He has North Country roots and thorough knowledge of the area,” said Boutelle. Seymour commented that the transition from prosecutor to defender has been an adjustment. “The legal aspect is the same, I’m just on the other side now,” he said. “The process is different, but my experience as a former prosecutor has been invaluable.”

SPRING SPORTS Beavers, Eagles join forces on diamond KEENE/WESTPORT — The Mountain Valley Athletic Conference will have a new force to contend with this season as Keene Central School and Westport Central School baseball teams have merged for 2010. A dwindling number of players on both teams prompted the merger, bringing five Keene students and seven Westport students together as an experienced and formidable unit. “The team has come together very well and the camaraderie is above expectations,” said Don Markwica, who is the co-head coach for the team along with his son, Chris. “This is a great group of young men who are dedicated and committed to playing baseball and having fun while doing so.” Juniors Sam Earl and Kevin Russell, both All-Stars last year, return to headline a deep pitching rotation. James Bell, Luke Andrews and Jesse Stevens will also bring varsity experience to the mound. The batting lineup is also strong with past

Alan Ware, Luke Andrews, David Quaglietta, Alex Frum, and Ethan Markwica all return to bolster the lineup, and Jonathan Magoon is the lone rookie. “We are a veteran team and we will strive to be competitive in every game,” Markwica added. “We should have the ability to score some runs offensively so our season will go as far as our pitching and defense carry us.”

KEENE VALLEY — An experienced and talented group of sluggers could propel Keene into the hunt for a Division softball title this year. The Beavers suffer the loss of 2009 AllStars Alicia Ashe and Summer Reed, but return a solid group of seniors led by past AllStars Emma Nye and Michelle Sardella. Their classmates include Taylor McCabe, Nycole Gifford, Briana Murphy, and Louisa Sardella. Several talented sophomores also return with varsity experience: Anna Kowanko, Emma Gothner, Brittany Guerin, and Amanda Boyle. Together with newcomer Alexis Smith, they bring considerable depth to the lineup. With so many players returning, Keene is likely to improve on last year ’s 6-5 record.

SPRING SPORTS AVCS baseball: young but tough Patriot girls primed to repeat

AU SABLE FORKS — Graduation was hard on the Patriots as they lost seven key starters, but this year ’s AuSable Valley baseball team is showing lots of promise. “We are very young, but I do think we can compete with anybody on any given day,” said head coach Randy Douglas. “Our strengths are that we have a very good defensive team. We will also have quite a few contact hitters in our lineup. AVCS returns four starters from last year ’s squad including junior T.J. Burl, who was named as a CVAC All-Star last year, accounting for many of the Patriots’ hits. Seniors Curtis Loreman, Jordan Bezio, and A.J. Gordon are all proven players in the starting lineup. Pitching ace Alex LaFountain also returns for his senior year, though he is still recovering from a torn ACL suffered earlier this year. “We are very hopeful he can make it though the year,” said Douglas, noting an otherwise inexperienced pitching rotation.

CLINTONVILLE — Last year, the AuSable Valley Softball team upset Plattsburgh to capture its first Section VII Class B title in school history. With seven starters returning, they will look to build on that success. Seniors Shiloh Bourgeois, Heather Braid, Karly Lincoln, and Jessica Meredith, along with juniors Jena Finnegan, Kelly McBrearity, Johanna Recny, and Kayla Taylor contributed heavily to last year ’s 16-5 overall record. They will be joined by seniors Alex Hoey and Kyla Kennedy; juniors Brittany Friedrich and Mackenzie Courson; and sophomore Amanda Hamilton. “Alex Hoey, Kelly McBrearity and Brittany Friedrich will be on the mound for us this season,” said head coach Jim Caron. “They have big shoes to fill, taking over for CVAC pitcher-of-the-year Whitney Vincent.” “Our experience and defense should be strengths going into this season,” Caron added. “I look for our pitchers to improve throughout the season and be primed for the second half.”

SPRING SPORTS Lions in hunt for title

Willsboro sluggers bring experience

LEWIS — A deep roster with many experienced players could allow Elizabethtown-Lewis to surprise some teams in MVAC baseball this year. Nine players return from last year ’s 37 squad, led by senior pitcher Michael Gowdy, who batted a staggering .517 average last year on his way to 15 hits and nine RBI. Classmates Benjamin Goff and Devin Drummond are back as well, both of whom are a known threat at the plate and on the mound. Senior Shawn LaPier and sophomore Timothy LaRock both recorded averages above .300 last year. Brandon Quain, Hunter Mowery, Andrew Mitchell, and Patrick Phillips also return with varsity experience. “All our pitchers are returning,” said head coach Jim Ratliff. “Both our offense and de-

WILLSBORO — The Warriors will look to bounce back from last year ’s 3-8 record as they bring back several promising and proven players. “We are returning nine players from last year ’s team and have lost two players to graduation,” said head coach Andrew Lee. “We are looking to be more of a competitive team this year within our division because of the strong core group of players that are returning.” Seniors Jordon Blanchard, David Gowans, and Justin Drinkwine; juniors Lucas Strong, William Gay, and John Polllock; and sophomores Clay Sherman, Nick Ball, and Clayton Cross all return with varsity experience. Strong, Sherman, Blanchard, Gay, and Pollock will look to get the job done on the mound for Willsboro this year.

ELIZABETHTOWN — With few players returning from last year’s 8-4 team, the upcoming season for ElizabethtownLewis Softball will depend heavily on the performance of its up-and-coming players. Four seniors were lost to graduation, including Riley Diemand, who powered the Lions on the mound and at the plate last year. This year, ELCS will lean heavily on the five players it has returning, especially sopho-

more pitching ace Andrea LaVien and senior Chelsea Provost, both of whom were named as All-Stars last season. Underclassmen Alyssa Sullivan, Kaitlyn Coats, and Kylee Cassavaugh also bring valuable experience. “We are a young team with nine freshman on it,” said head coach Jim Monty. “We look to improve as the season progresses.” Sophomore Clare Harwood joins the team this year, along with a host of freshmen: Emily Morris, Kearsten Ashline, Sierra Wimmett, Cheyenne Sousis, Jessica Spaulding, Crystal Grady, Jennifer McGinn, and Kaylee Cross.

WILLSBORO — Willsboro’s softball team has been a perennial powerhouse in the MVAC, and there’s little reason to think this season will be any different. Six players return from last year’s 9-3 squad, including the formidable pitcher/catcher duo of Marion James and Jade Sayward. Fellow seniors Stephanie Burrows and Sierra Bruno, along with junior Britney Schrieber and sophomore Anna Daly, have also proven themselves well at the varsity level. Joining them will be sophomores Hannah Bruno, Taylor Strong, Serene Holland, Karin Buck, and Renee Provost. Together, they bring promising potential to a veteran team. “We hope to be competitive in all games,” said head coach David Lee. “We will look to win the division and take it from there.”
