t’s National EMS week, which seems like the perfect time describe the “mock accident” that the Westport Ambulance Squad conducted at WCS earlier this month. The event was organized by Dave Napper, an EMT on our squad, who worked with the school to give students a graphic picture of what can happen when steel, flesh, and velocity come together. We responded to the mock accident the way we respond to any accident, by rolling an ambulance and any necessary vehicles from the fire department. We brought the rescue truck, which holds our “jaws of life” and other tools. Often we’ll bring fire trucks, too, not only for fire suppression but also to help manage traffic. As we leave the firehouse, we let dispatch know which vehicles are going, and usually the EMT in the ambulance will radio E’town Hospital to give them a heads-up on the situation. After making sure the scene is safe, the first job is triage—figuring out how many patients are involved and deciding which ones require attention first. At the mock accident, we had one “fatality,” one “drunk

motorist,” and two “patients.” While the police dealt with the “drunk,” we began treating and extricating the injured patients. EMTs provided cervical spine stabilization (to prevent spinal cord injury) while firefighters chocked the vehicle to stabilize it and operated the “jaws.” We then transferred the patients to backboards and loaded them onto stretchers and into the ambulance. We also monitor vital signs and gather information during this process, as well as performing any other emergency medical care needed. On the way to the hospital, we radio ahead with further information, so they know what’s coming. Readers curious about National EMS week can go to www.acep.org/emsweek. The Inn on the Library Lawn Coffee Shop is open for breakfast every morning now, as well as in the early evening Wednesday-Sunday. And Lakeside Preschool is holding its annual benefit yard sale this weekend, May 21 and 22, starting at 9 a.m., at 4 Harbourview Terrace here in town.

his weekend, there’s going to be a garage sale in Westport to benefit Whallonsburg’s Lakeside School. The sale will be at 4 Harbourview Terrace in the hamlet, starting at 9 both Saturday and Sunday. The film society’s next offering will be May 28, when it shows five short films. More in next week’s column. The Grange is hosting a benefit for the Literacy Volunteers this Saturday evening starting at 7. The theme of the event is vaudeville, an entertainment form I must have missed out on in my youth. A neighbor of mine, who is the charming but corrupt mayor of Reber, will appear in a rather scandalous role bringing further ignominy to his administration and community. There will also be lots of real talent on the stage and the Literacy Volunteers are certainly a worthwhile cause. The Grange is in the center of Whallonsburg, right on Route 22 with lots of parking. Lake Champlain is still way high and it’s raining some more. Although we’re not experiencing the same misery as in Mississippi and Louisiana, it’s still discouraging to

have our short summer season get off to such a bad start. My sources say that the Pink Pig, an establishment currently just outside of Wadhams, will be moving to the old stone store downtown. I believe their main business is in antiques. The Adirondack Art Association is gearing up for another summer. Their first show will be opening on Friday, May 27, and will have works of the late Mary Gullo on display. The gallery is in the old fire station, in the middle of downtown, where Route 22 meets the lake shore road. You can read all about the 2011 shows at their website. I’ve been busy at the transportation museum in Plattsburgh, giving tours and mowing the lawn. There’s a large model train layout in the museum, very popular with kids of all ages, that I get to operate. Last week, some wayward child put a small stone on the tracks, derailing the passenger train. I was annoyed at first, but had to laugh because the kid must have been delighted.

hile I am writing this week’s column, I keep saying over and over a childhood verse, “Rain, Rain go away, come again another day,” we really do not need more rain today. This past weekend was the annual Junior Prom, where the Prince and Princess emerge in their prom attire. This year the crowned Queen was Hannah Bruno, and the crowned King was Jeff Bigelow, their court consisted of Tayler Strong, Katie Kirkby, Anna Daly, Emily Sayward, Cody Sayward, Clay Sherman, Nick Ball, and John Hubbard. Congratulations to them all. This is an evening of great joy, but we often hold our breath that there will not be any accidents on that night. So when the fire alarm went off in the wee hours, I am sure the emergency personal did not quite know what they would be responding to, thankful that this accident is reported to have no one being seriously injured and not related to prom. We are most grateful that we do have a volunteer emergency crew ready to respond. I heard recently that Lucy Belzile has returned from Washington State where she spent seven months with her daughter Diane and family. I also understand she is recovering from a bad virus, hope all is well

unday I took a rainy walk over the foot bridge and around parts of Keeseville. Once again the AuSable is getting pretty wild. I wish the best to all who live in the lower areas. If I hear of any needs or good deeds I will gladly put them here in the column. Keeseville is looking very lush and green. Many take great pains to making their properties look very nice and appreciate this. Again, the paving stone contest is fully under way. These stones will be on permanent display over by the new Office Building and there is plenty of room for many stones. One thing that led to this contest was the desire to have a contest that renters or apartment dwellers could have fun participating in besides just the home owners who have gardens. I think that this is a great idea and strongly encourage everyone to join in on the fun. All you need to do is get some wood that you can

make a frame to pour cement into so it will end up 2 feet by 2 feet. You can get these as well as great tips from our own Adirondack Hardware. As the cement is drying, put things into it or etch or paint your designs onto it. This is something a single person could do or couples or even whole families. Remember you will be creating a legacy that will always be on display for all to see for many years to come. It is a very unique opportunity. The Village Office is very interested in improving the quality of our lives here and I encourage everybody to get involved both by supporting the Office and its ideas as well as giving them your own ideas to improve our community. I wish the best to all our college students as this is the last week and already we are fast approaching the last month of regular school. Time does seem to fly. Stay safe and happy everyone.

A reminder that our community needs volunteers for the summer season at different locations around town.

they enter the skin, not by the tick’s body. 2. Pull firmly and steadily directly outward. Do not twist the tick as you are pulling. (Using methods such

as applying petroleum jelly, a hot match, or alcohol will NOT cause the tick to “back out.” In fact, these irritants may cause the tick to deposit more disease-carrying saliva in the wound). 3. After removing the tick, place it in a jar of alcohol to kill it. Ticks are NOT killed by flushing them down the toilet. 4. Clean the bite wound with a disinfectant. 5. Wash your hands thoroughly. Should any skin irritation occur, you can use hydrocortisone spray to alleviate the itching. If any complications develop, please be

sure to see your veterinarian for follow-up. Our featured pet this week is Hooter, a domestic shorthair-mix, Tabby cat with enormous eyes. Those eyes reminded one of the shelter staff of a hoot owl, which earned him his moniker. Hooter is a gentle giant who longs for attention and cuddles from a family he can call his own. He is the perfect cure to loneliness and will never take you for granted. If you are seeking a feline friend who will give back as much love as he receives, Hooter may be the cat for you.

The task is actually fairly easy; all you will need is a pair of finetipped tweezers or special tick removal instruments, which allows one to remove the tick without squeezing the tick body. It’s important not to crush the tick because doing so can force harmful bacteria to leave the tick and enter your pet’s bloodstream. 1. Grab the tick by the head or mouth parts right where

Chamber needs to bring dinner back to Saranac Lake area

T

his is not taking your ball and going home with it. This is taking your ball and going over to the neighbor ’s house. Saranac Lake Area Chamber of Commerce board members have decided to hold their annual dinner on June 8 at the Golden Arrow Lakeside Resort in Lake Placid. This decision has many people — including Saranac Lake Mayor Clyde Rabideau — up in arms, even suggesting that the move is related to the village’s plan to eliminate funding to the chamber gradually over the next three years. In this case, the Saranac Lake Area Chamber of Commerce is wrong. Yes, the word “Area” is in the title, but the emphasis is on “Saranac Lake.” The home page of its website says “Welcome to Saranac Lake.” Should it add, “But don’t come for dinner — Go

to Lake Placid instead”? On the chamber ’s website, 21 of the 30 listings for “Restaurant, food and beverage members” have a Saranac Lake address. Two have a Lake Placid address, and one of those is McDonald’s. That’s two-thirds of the sites listed by the chamber. Were all 21 of them booked for June 8? The chamber defends its decision. Argument No. 1: Chamber officials have said Lake Placid is okay because the dinner has been held outside of Saranac Lake in the past, using Hohmeyer's Lodge on Lake Clear as an example. However, Hohmeyer ’s is in the Saranac Lake area, not in the middle of the village of Lake Placid. Argument No. 2: Chamber officials have said Lake Placid is okay because the Golden Arrow Lakeside Resort is a member. Using this logic, why not have the dinner at another member business, the Akwesasne Mohawk Casino? That probably has the most to offer chamber members and has about as much to do with the Saranac Lake brand as the village of Lake Placid. Get the point? It’s perception. Hohmeyer ’s is “perceived” as a Saranac Lake area business. The Golden

Arrow is perceived as a Lake Placid business, and, despite hosting a Saranac Lake Area Chamber of Commerce annual dinner there, it will not be viewed any other way. Also, while the chamber will not admit to it, the perception is that this move has everything to do with their recent clashes with the village. It’s the whole “looks like a duck ...” theory. Even if the chamber ’s intentions are pure, recent events suggest otherwise. This is not a move we would expect from a chamber of commerce that is run by some of the area’s top professionals, including the board of directors. This is a move that wreaks of bitterness and anger toward the village and, in part, the non-member businesses within the village. In terms of the venom between the chamber and the village, neither is innocent. Saranac Lake Village Board members should think long and hard about any decision that takes funds away from an organization that promotes the municipality. In fact, the village of Saranac Lake, out of any of the other funding entities, should be the one that contributes the most to the Saranac Lake Area Chamber of Commerce.

We don’t buy the “double taxation” excuse offered by the village board, even though they’ve targeted other organizations. It’s perception. Eliminating the chamber ’s funding seems just as mean spirited as moving the chamber ’s annual meeting to Lake Placid. And now the mayor has created his own chamberlike program to promote local businesses, Saranac Lake Inc. These two entities should be able to work together to promote the village and region and realize that the Saranac Lake area does not include the heart of Lake Placid. Both sides need to come to the table, sit down, and do the right thing for the businesses and residents of Saranac Lake — we can recommend 21 restaurants. For now, we’ll settle for one step in the right direction; return the annual dinner to the Saranac Lake area.

This editorial is the collaborative opinion of a board comprised of Thom Randall, Lindsay Yandon, Fred Herbst, Lou Varricchio, Keith Lobdell, Jer emiah Papineau, Andy Flynn and John Gereau. Comments may be dir ected to denpubs@denpubs.com.

An inventive way to save you money

O

perating a business in this economy has become very challenging. One must constantly be looking at reinventing your company and your product offerings to remain competitive and provide value to those who purchase the products you are selling. Unlike most newspapers that require a paid subscription in order to receive the paper, our business model changed years ago from a “paid” model to a “free newspaper” model based on generating sufficient advertising revenues from local businesses to support the costs associated with publishing and the distribution of over 70,000 papers each week. Over that last few years, we’ve seen local businesses closing their doors and cut back on their advertising budgets. Coupled with rising operating and postal costs, we know that advertising revenues alone may not support our publishing efforts in the future.

Please return the items that were in my front yard To the Valley News: Last Friday I put some items at the end of my driveway on Champlain Avenue to sell. I had four chairs, a wrought iron umbrella base, a garden umbrella, two Mexican handmade plant pots and a Christ-

mas sled decorated with pine cones. I have been putting items for sale at the end of my driveway for a couple of weeks now. I posted a sign on both sides of the chairs to indicate that the items were for sale. I was home all day doing yard work hence my garage door was open and my truck was in the driveway not to mention a ladder on the lawn and gardening tools. A friend stopped by to visit for 20 minutes and we sat in my back garden only to find when I walked down the driveway after the visit that ALL the items had been taken. Perhaps the signs blew away but

Alexander from page 6 MANY STORES WON’T ACCEPT — available here in the Champlain Valley. This would not only offset the cost of a subscription to the paper but put far more money into our readers’ pockets. Who wouldn’t be willing to trade $29 for $1,000 if we are talking real money savings on products people buy everyday? Maybe $4 off Zyrtec, $3 off a 12piece meal at KFC, $1 off Energizer Batteries, or 50 cents off granola bars or yogurt. In getting manufacturers to reduce the funds people are likely to spend anyway, we free up those dollars to be spent elsewhere in our local economy while helping local families stretch their budgets. The program works simply like this ... When you purchase a voluntary subscription to one our free papers for $29, you’ll be enrolled in this exclusive online program. Every time you log in the membership, it allows you to select up $20 worth of locally redeemable coupons from hundreds of coupons listed in 21 categories, on items you want to buy. You can log in up to five times within a 30-day period and select $1,000 total within the year ’s membership. Your personal redemption code and easy instruction will be emailed to you upon receipt of the subscription. (See the ad in today’s

paper for more details). The coupons, once selected, will be mailed to you via First Class Mail. You pay nothing more. And remember, these are real manufacturers’ coupons that will never be rejected and always doubled at stores that provide that service. Now, I know I sound a bit like Ron Popeil, but this program makes sense, puts dollars back into our local economy and assists us in delivering your community newspaper to your mailbox each week. Coupons may not be for everyone, but given the current state of the economy and the prospects for at least the next few years, I have to believe many could find the program very helpful. Ingenuity, as they say, is the mother of invention. So as our homegrown North Country company works hard to keep bringing you relevant news, we hope this program will allow us to produce a better product for you, the consumer. Furthermore, we hope to be better positioned to meet our mission of community service while continuing to support our local economy. Thank you, in advance, for your voluntary paid subscriptions to our community publications and for inviting us into your home each week. Dan Alexander is publisher and owner of Denton Publications.

WESTPORT — The public hearing on a proposed 99-unit development in Westport will be held next week. The public hearing for the Rolling Hills Farms development proposal will take place at the Westport town offices on Wednesday, May 25, at 7 p.m. “The complete application is supposed to be filed on May 18 and the following Wednesday will be the public hearing,” town supervisor Daniel Connell said. “After that, the planning board will be going over the plans and making their decision.” Planning board chairman William Johnston said that he and his colleagues have been going over the project since it was proposed in February. “We have been under way in reviewing this project for a matter of months now,” Johnston said. “We have an attorney and planning firm that is assisting us to sort out the information, with the review of the application and with the input that we receive from the public hearing.”

Johnston said that the planning board was scheduled to meet on May 18, when the application would be submitted, and he anticipated that the application would be deemed complete at that time. He added that he feels a decision will be made on the project by the planning board’s June meeting. “I would expect some action at the June 22 meeting,” Johnston said. Previous meetings involving Dave Mann, who recently purchased a 1,300-acre parcel in Westport formerly owned by past State Republican Committee head Sandy Treadwell, brought out large numbers of residents who wanted to hear more about the project. The plan calls for 37 new buildings, which together would contain 99 living units, including 33 cottage duplexes and a large three-wing "Manor House" with 10 units in each wing. In addition, a centrally-located educational center would offer members instruction in maple sugaring and baking as well as a supply depot where members could pick up farm products.

Car test drives benefit students at ELCS keith@denpubs.com ELIZABETHTOWN — Ladies and gentlemen were able to start their engines and help out the Elizabethtown-Lewis Central School District. The school district and Egglefield Brothers Ford hosted a Drive One 4UR School event at the school and Egglefields’ Elizabethtown site Thursday, May 12. “We were just around 300 participants in the event,” Dennis “Denny” Egglefield said. “It was exactly around what we were hoping for, because the magic number is right

around 270 to get the maximum donation.” Egglefield said that the Ford Motor Company would give a donation to the school for each car that was driven, and would add an additional $10 if test drivers also tried out a Focus. The most that could be raised was up to $6,000. “It was pretty steady throughout the day,” Gail Else, ELCS superintendent, said. “It’s great to see the community come out and support the school.” Test drivers took a “spin” around the school area and were also able to support the ELCS fifth-grade class, who was holding a bake sale to support their upcoming trip to Boston.

Brook trout boot camp A

las, I have returned from yet another successful week-long fishing trip deep within the Adirondack wilds. I timed this one perfectly with ice out and my crew was rewarded with plenty of spunky spring brookies for our effort. This was my annual trip into the St. Regis Canoe Area, an outing that has become a tradition for half a dozen of my fishing chums and I. Last year we celebrated my Dad’s 75th birthday there. This year we dubbed the trip “Spirit of 76” in recognition of his B-day, even though he was unable to tag along because of work commitments. Rest assured, you were there in spirit, pop. Probably a good thing he missed this one anyway. While we caught a ton of fish, the atmosphere was dampened by five straight

days of rain. Seriously, it started pouring last Sunday and did not stop until it turned to snow Thursday. Ponds ran high and brooks and rivers were roaring. We’d head out in our canoes just long enough to get soaked, return for dry clothes and head out again. At one point, my buddy joked that he could have stood in an ice cold shower with his pack on for a day and come out dryer. We’re actually contemplating using that as a training exercise prior to next year ’s jaunt. There’s a thought — brook trout boot camp. Force cadets to march 5 miles through the forest carrying a Radisson and a 60-pound rucksack full of food and fishing equipment, while swatting black flies from their foreheads without dropping the 30-packs from under each arm. Only a select few will make it, but they’ll

I just returned from a week-long fishing trip in the St. Regis Canoe Area where the fish hit quite well despite the torrential rain. Not surprisingly, we found water temperatures and hatches to be running a few weeks behind this year. be rewarded with washing meals of cold Spaghetti O’s down with frozen beer after sleeping on the ground in a paper-thin bag in near sub zero temperatures during driving rain and gale-force winds. For those who are interested, I’ll have a sign up sheet tacked to my door.

Youth bowhunting bill on governor’s desk In other outdoor news, the state is poised to ink a bill allowing junior bowhunters to hunt big game at 12 years of age with adult supervision. The current age restriction is 14 years. This is an important piece of legislation as it has been proven that introducing our youth to the sport of big game hunting at an early age increases the likelihood of them participating for life. I also personally believe that bowhunting is an excellent way to introduce the

young to hunting as it teaches patience and safety. The bill has been passed by the state Senate and Assembly and now awaits only the governor ’s signature to become law this big game season. Outdoor groups, such as New York Bowhunters, are urging sportsmen to write or e-mail Governor Cuomo in favor of the law. To e-mail the governor, go to http://www.governor.ny.gov/contact/Gov ernorContactForm.php

Turkey shoot on tap The Willsboro Fish and Game will be holding the last turkey shoot of this year on Sunday May 22 from 9 a.m. to noon.

Paterson addresses Paul Smith’s By Chris Morris

denpubs@denpubs.com PAUL SMITHS — Former New York Gov. David Paterson was in the Adirondacks over the weekend, where he addressed graduates of Paul Smith’s College on May 15. Speaking along the shores of Lower St. Regis Lake, Paterson told graduates to take chances and stick to their convictions. “Throughout the centuries there have been men and women who took first steps down new roads armed with nothing but they’re own vision,” he said. “The great leaders, the thinkers, the artists, the scientists, the inventors — stood alone against the societies of their time. Every new thought was opposed, every new invention was denounced. But these people who had an unbarred vision went ahead – they fought, the suffered, and the paid, but they won.” Paterson, who rose to New York’s highest of-

fice after the resignation of Eliot Spitzer, broke into politics in 1985 when he was elected as a state Senator representing Harlem. At 31, he was the youngest lawmaker in Albany at the time and eventually took the helm as Senate Minority Leader. Sunday’s speech had all the makings of a classic commencement address — Paterson aimed to inspire, amuse, and educate. But he was also careful to temper the enthusiasm with advice for a group of young adults preparing to enter a tough economy. “This is a very difficult time and you will endure a lot of hardships that your predecessors and that’s why it is so important that your family, your friends, those who taught you, those who came to observe today, that we all let it be known that we are behind you,” Paterson said. “Because we’re looking to you to reverse some of the poor judgment that put us in this position now.”
