Lewis seeks legal fees from APA


Priests from Essex County and elsewhere in the Ogdensburg Diocese joined in celebrating a special 100th Anniversary Mass at St. Philip of Jesus church in Willsboro Aug. 22. Salim B. “Sandy” Lewis speaks to reporters about what he believes to be over-regulation and mismanagement at the Adirondack Park Agency. Lewis announced his intention to seek over $208,000 from the APA to defray legal fees he incurred from challenging and defeating the agency in court. Photo by Matt Bosley

By Matt Bosley LAKE PLACID — The state has declined any further appeals in its legal battle with Lewis Family Farm, but the Until this case is not over. At an Aug. 20 press case, the APA conference in Lake had an aura of inPlacid, Salim B. “Sandy” vincibility. Lewis announced his decision to seek — Salim B. $208,000 from the APA “Sandy” Lewis to pay for his legal fees in a dispute that twice rejected an agency claim to jurisdiction over three houses on his 1,200-acre organic farm in Essex. When asked why he chose to do so, Lewis simply replied, “It’s just.” John Privitera, counsel for Lewis Family Farm, Inc., said New York's Equal Access to Justice statute provides a remedy for parties subjected to unwarranted lawsuits from the state.

WILLSBORO — Parishioners and priests from around the region came together in Willsboro last weekend to celebrate a century of faith and fellowship. St. Philip of Jesus Catholic Church held a special Anniversary Mass Aug. 22, celebrating its 100th year as a cornerstone of faith in the community.

No pew was left empty as more than 200 people packed the sanctuary, many coming from neighboring churches to share in the occasion. Several talented musicians, both vocal and instrumental, joined the already well-rounded choir to lead the large congregation in songs both joyful and moving. Priests from throughout Essex County, and even a few from elsewhere in the diocese, also joined in celebrating the special mass. Among them were several former pastors of St. Philip of Jesus. At least a dozen Knights of Columbus were on hand to honor the ceremony.

Neighbors organize support for tragic loss By Matt Bosley AU SABLE FORKS — More than a dozen people in Au Sable Forks are organizing a fundraiser for a fellow resident who recently lost both house and husband. A benefit for Sandra “Sandy” Hoover will be held at American Legion Post 504 in Au Sable Forks Sept. 5, an effort by friends and neighbors to help this victim of a tragic fire. “It’s just the right thing to do.” said Mary Ann Denton, a longtime neighbor of the Hoovers who is helping organize the fundraiser. Sandy, 63, and her husband, Vernon Hoover were inside their Silver Lake Road home July 5 when it caught fire. San-

dra was rescued from the blaze, but Vernon never made it out as flames gutted the house. “I live right across the road,” said Denton, “and when I saw that, it was unbelievable.” Hoover has since moved to Wilmington to live with her son, Donald “Donnie” Hoover, but hopes to move back to her property when she has the means. “Words just can’t explain what the whole community is doing for her,” said Donnie, who said the family is still in dispute with their insurance company to get the full value of their policy. “Not only did she lose her husband, but everything she owned.” The event starts with a spaghetti dinner from 4:30-6 p.m. Immediately following is an auction featuring numerous

at Elizabethtown Community Hospital is now complete, hospital officials announced Aug. 18. Having broke ground in July 2008, the hospital undertook a capital campaign with the goal to raise $2 million of the $6.7 million needed to complete renovations. They ultimately exceeded that goal by $164,000. “We are pleased to say that we have surpassed our initial fundraising goal of $2 million,” stated George Maffey, co-chair of the campaign. “We had a dynamic steering committee and we must thank our over 400 donors who supported the campaign; in particular, Jamie Clark and Helen Paul who were instrumental in kicking off our fundraiser.” The new Elizabethtown Community Hospital boasts a state of the art Emergency Department that provides

privacy for patients, larger trauma and exam rooms and a family waiting area. “We would like to thank our patients, visitors, and staff for being patient during our phases of construction,” said Hospital Administrator and CEO, Rodney Boula. “It was a tedious 13month schedule but with everyone’s cooperation, we finished ahead of schedule and now have a tremendous, state of the art and patientfriendly facility.” More than 13,000 square feet of the original building were renovated in addition to the new Emergency Wing. This includes a lobby with

private registration areas. Laboratory and Radiology services were redesigned and relocated close to the lobby for easy access and patient convenience. The inpatient and outpatient rehabilitative therapy space has also been expanded to provide more equipment and therapy room for patients. The expansion also means added services at the hospital. Mobile MRI services will be available at ECH beginning in October, an added convenience for patients who require this frequently ordered diagnostic test. Hospital pharmacy staff are receiving training in order

to implement a chemotherapy program slated to start this fall. Physical and rehabilitative therapy staff are being educated in cardiac rehabilitation with plans to start a program in 2010, pending New York State Certificate of Need approval. “The key to the success of our hospital expansion project and fundraising campaign has been the support we have received from the community,” said Boula. “That continued support is what will allow us to continue to add new services and grow for the health of the community.”

Candidates declare in race for Supreme Court By Jonathan Alexander WARRENSBURG — Candidates for the vacant state Fourth Judicial District Supreme Court judgeship are lining up — and they range from an attorney from Malone to a county Surrogate Court Judge from Schenectady. The vacant Supreme Court seat is a result of the retirement of Justice Jan Plumadore. Essex County Family and Surrogate Court Justice Richard Meyer, Malone attorney and former Franklin County Attorney Brian Stewart and Schenectady County Surrogate Court Justice Barry Kramer are all seeking party nominations. The party nominations are required to take place between Sept. 26 and 28, but a time and place has yet to be named for any of the parties. Meyer will be seeking the Republican and Conservative nomination. Stewart is seeking the Democratic nod and Kramer is seeking Democratic and Conservative backing.

According to Stewart, his blend of public and private sector experience in business distances him from the pack in this election. Stewart noted that it seems appropriate for a seat held by a Franklin County resident to stay within the county. Plumadore resides in Franklin County. Meyer and Kramer have both handled Supreme Court cases, as Meyer has been sitting in since Plumadore’s retirement and Kramer has been handling a 40-percent Supreme Court caseload for the last 14 years. Kramer, a former college basketball All American at NYU and first-round NBA draft pick in 1967, graduated Suma Cum Laude from SUNY Albany’s School of Law. Kramer that as a lawyer, he quickly ascended through the ranks, eventually sitting on the board of directors of the largest law firm in Albany. He practiced law for 25 years before taking the seat of Schenectady County Surrogate Court Judge in 1993. Kramer said has the temperament and the desire to do the job well.

”I’m a very easygoing fellow, I love the lawyers — I practiced for 25 years and I understand what it’s like on the other side of the bench,” Kramer said. Prior to his 2005 election to the Essex County Surrogate Court, Meyer practiced privately for 23 years and was also Essex County Attorney for 18 years. His recent decision affirming a Lewis farmer’s right to construct housing for his labor force after the Adirondack Park Agency said the construction was illegal, is considered by many to be a landmark decision reinforcing

federal agricultural law. The massive fourth judicial district encompasses a region stretching from Schenectady to St. Lawrence counties. State Third Department Independent Judicial Election Qualification Committee Director Tim O’Keefe said Friday that the department is still receiving applications for the seat and that no qualification rating have yet been issues. O’Keefe said he expects the qualification ratings of the candidates for the seat to be complete by mid-September.

abor Day and the end of summer may be fast approaching, but it's not time to hunker down by the stove yet. Not by a long shot. For one thing, the Depot Theatre is still going strong, with a toe-tappin' show that puts together the greatest hits of Jerry Lieber and Mike Stoller. They were the legendary songwriting duo who came up with so many of the classic hits that helped define rock and roll, including "Youngblood" and "Stand by Me." The show, "Smokey Joe's Café, the Songs of Lieber and Stoller," turns their songs into compelling musical theater. It opened on August 21 and runs till September 6. Call the Depot at 962-8680 for information and reservations. And this Sunday, August 30, presents a rare treat for anyone interested in local history, or maritime history, or American history in general. Author James L. Nelson will speak on his book Benedict Arnold's Navy: How a Rag Tag Fleet Lost the Battle of Valcour Island but Won the American Revolution, with a reception and book-signing to follow. The event takes place at 1 p.m. in Witherbee Auditorium at Camp Dudley. Nelson, who won the 2009 Samuel Eliot Morison Award in Maritime History for this book, has written fifteen books of historical fiction and non-fiction, as well as numerous magazine articles. He works as an educator

at the Maine Maritime Museum, and for a year or two in the early 90s he served as First Officer on the Rose, the largest private sail-training vessel in the United States. In other words, he's a salty sea-dog who also knows how to tell a ripping good yarn. This event, by the way, is sponsored by Literacy Volunteers of Essex/Franklin Counties, whose Vice President, Jim Bullard, lives in Westport. It's part of their annual August Author series—past speakers have included acclaimed novelist Russell Banks of Keene Valley, famed children's author and illustrator Stephen Kellogg of Essex, and the noted nonfiction writer Thurston Clark of Willsboro. I want to thank Wadhams artist Paul Rossi for once again donating a beautiful painting to help support the Shakespeare-in-the-Park Festival. I'll be selling raffle tickets for the painting over the next few weeks to help pay for our second production, "Henry V," which takes place in Ballard Park at 3 p.m. on Sunday, September 6. Raffle tickets for the painting are $5 each, or 5 for $20. Call me at 9624892 if you'd like to participate. I'd be very grateful for your support. OK—I've got to go do my homework for Firefighter 1 tonight. In future columns, I'll be sharing some of my experiences in class, in hopes of raising awareness of our ongoing need for volunteer firefighters and EMTs.

uess I will have to turn in my resignation as a fire Huffer & Puffer because I haven’t been to a fire in over 12 years. Of course so will every other member since there hasn’t been a fire in this part of town during that time. I also have been asked by other towns not to try joining their niches. Hats Off Dept: to Chastity Wardell recovering from an ambulance drive to Burlington; to Lewis farms and their valorous fight with APA on behalf of downtrodden farmers; to the Essex ambulance which seems to be spending a mighty amount of time on the roads; to Kristy Sprague for not having to move before her election; to the Summer Vacation Bible jamboree and all who volunteered; to Bradley Paye for finding 3 feet of organic bat droppings, which at 10.00 a pound, may earn enough money to skip a Wednesday fund raising meal or two; to the BRTF people for their outstanding performances; and, to the Press Republican for their award winning headlines (actually no big deal since no one entered anything in that classification). A dear, dear friend of mine, whose name escapes me at this moment, has passed away. Have you noticed that no one dies

anymore? They pass away, go away, seem underway to being away, get called (I don’t know about ya’ll but I wouldn’t answer any such call) and so on. Wake up America; its time to call a spade a spade. If the United States is called North America, what does that make Canada- North, North America? Upper North America? Southern Arctic? I have been selling books like mad in my bookstore but, as I was afraid would happen, they’re my favorites. Of course the reason I sold so many books was due to the Cash for Books Programs which rebates $4,500 for any book that has only been read once. Fortunately the U.S. computer system crashed again so I won’t be able to sell any books. You don’t hear me whining like the latest whimpering from Car dealers? They couldn’t sell their trash cars until the “clunkers” program and now they whine and whine about having to file paperwork. See where GM has sold so many cars (15) that they may open a plant to build a couple. Of course after they sold some of their new junk, they stopped helping customers thus showing their gratitude.


e all waited through July and early August looking for summer, so hopefully these last several days of real summer weather is not going to be what we remember as our summer. The two Catholic churches really celebrated their 100 year mark this past Sunday, with a very meaningful Mass with several former Priests taking part in the service. The congregation came out in numbers and were reminded of how few families were here at the forming of their churches and where they are today. Several meaningful special gifts were presented and Assembly Woman Teresa Sayward presented a special acknowledgement from the State honoring their 100 years of service. Then many of them went to Crickets for a meal together. The Ecumenical community conducted a successful Vacation Bible School this past week, with great clergy participation and several impressive teen helpers, making for another meaningful time for the children. A reminder that the Town Board is in the process of establishing local laws to govern outdoor wood burning units. The appointed committee has presented their findings and suggestions and there has been one public hearing before making the final plans. It was decided that there was still a need for a second time for the public to

Childhood anxiety on the rise


recent report in the Journal of personality and Social Psychology revealed that, even before 9/11 and the War in Iraq, anxiety levels among American children had evidenced a marked increase. The first recorded anxiety measurements in the United States among children were taken in 1956. By 1980, children scored so high on anxiety scales that scores for American children that were considered “normal” were higher than scores for children who were psychiatric patients in the 1950’s. Some researchers found that disconnected relationships, looming environmental threats, changes in the divorce rate, the birth rate and the crime rate all had strong correlations with childhood anxiety. “Surprisingly, economic indices had little independent effect on anxiety. Apparently, children are less concerned with whether their family has enough money than when it is threatened by violence or family dissolution.” While there is no “definitive “cause and effect link regarding anxiety disorders, there does seem to be a set of factors that influence childhood anxiety. Having a parent that has struggled with an anxiety disorder may predispose a child to the same illness. Women and girls suffer anxiety at much higher levels than their male counterparts. Unlike men, women and girls are expected to look like the airbrushed models in magazines or the surgically sculptured actresses that appear to be flawless to the naked and naïve eye. The natural development of an ordinary woman is to develop hips and increased body fat, both biological conditions favorable to pregnancy. These undeniable biological factors go against the current more angular female archetype. As women and girls reach higher for even more unrealistic goals, is it any wonder that women are more anxious than men. Although men are more aware of their appearance than in pre-

vious generations, most men do not judge each other so harshly about their appearance. While, I have had more than a few comments regarding my burgeoning waistline, I have had as many comments about my graying but plentiful hair. For the most part, men just don’t comment at all in the manner that women do regarding appearance. Reminding ourselves that very few people are living a perfectly happy life By Scot Hurlburt with a taught waistline, a fat wallet and a job that they love, might be time well spent. Chronic anxiety takes a toll. Anxiety often predisposes the sufferer to concurrent episodes of depression. Anxiety is also linked to a higher incidence of physical problems such as heart disease, asthma and gastrointestinal upsets. Parents should pay attention to anxiety in their child. All children have fears and become anxious, it is when the depth of the fear and the duration of the anxiety become prolonged that anxiety may be a problem. The good news is that many children respond favorably once professional help is made available. A variety of medications are available that also help the sufferer to recover a balance in their lives. With concerns about the environment, terrorism, child abduction and the possibility of a job loss ever present, our world is more uncertain than ever. Parents can help by acknowledging anxiety in their child and if warranted, by getting help. Remember all kids count. The writer can be reached for comment at

These store loyalty programs include coupons for store credit that shoppers receive when they purchase one or more of the promoted products. So how do these promotions work? Here’s an example. In my drugstore’s weekly flier, the store advertises that if I buy a certain brand of shampoo for $3.99, I will get a $3 coupon at checkout. This coupon is good for a $3 reduction on any product sold in the store. It’s almost like a gift card. I can use the $3 credit to buy anything I want, it’s not tied to any specific item. These coupons typically bear a statement such as, “Good for $3 off your next purchase.” However, unlike a gift card, these coupons carry an expiration date, just as a traditional coupon does. This is the “loyalty” part of the program. The drugstore wants you to come back in over the next few weeks and shop again. Since I will pay $3.99 for the shampoo but will immediately receive $3 back at checkout for use on a future trip, the actual cost of the shampoo to me is just 99 cents. The $3 I spent on the shampoo comes right back to me in the form of store credit – the checkout coupon. Now, it’s always fun to get money back when you shop. But the wonderful think about loyalty programs is that you can use coupons on the items involved in these promotions. And, using coupons in conjunction with the loyalty savings often results in big savings to you, the shopper. With the shampoo example above, let’s add a coupon into the mix. For this brand of shampoo, I had a $2 manufacturer coupon. So, with the coupon my $3.99 bottle of shampoo cost just $1.99. I paid $1.99… and I also received that $3 coupon for my next shopping trip. This deal just became what I like to call a “moneymaker!” When we figure that $3 coupon into the equation, I paid less than $2 for the shampoo and got $3 back. The store paid me $1.01 to take that shampoo home. You may wonder how often drugstores feature loyalty sales such as this. The answer? Almost every week! Check the fliers of the large drugstore chains in your area and look for items with

text near them indicating that they will “pay you back” a certain dollar amount in coupons for purchasing the item. These kinds of payback deals are frequent and plentiful. So what kinds of items are included in these sales? Almost every kind of personal care item you can imagine: toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, conditioner, razors, shaving products, makeup, even overthe-counter medicines are featured regularly. Household By Jill Cataldo cleaners, air fresheners, laundry and dish detergent are often included in these sales, too. If you use coupons in conjunction with the items involved, you can often get the items in question for less than a dollar, and many times, completely free. Better yet, there are times when the store will be “paying” you to take things home too. And any time the store is paying me to shop, I’m smiling all the way to the checkout lane! © CTW Features

Youth program deserves praise To the editor: The Willsboro-Essex Summer Youth Program came to a climax last Friday at Noblewood Park as the 44 enrolled youngsters participated in an All-Star Hall of Fame Musical program performing to their parents, grandparents, and friends, who gave well-deserved applause to every act. Special recognition was due and awarded to the director, Maria Evans, who was assisted by nine counselors, all former students of Willsboro Central School. Mrs. Evans is due recognition from the Willsboro Town Board for her six years of dedication to the Youth Commission, for her supervision of both indoor activities, playground recreation, swimming, basketball, arts and crafts, and a reading program sponsored by the Paine Memorial Library. Even with the economic situation today, I found upon my visits to Noblwood during the six-week span the program showed no signs of insufficient means; even to the delicious luncheon catered by Elizabeth Schwanker and her staff. May Maria and all her staff be given rightful thanks for a super job. Elizabeth Wilkins, Authorized Willsboro A Division Of OPEN S

Award-winning author to speak at Camp Dudley By Matt Bosley


WESTPORT — Amidst the backdrop of Lake Champlain, an award-winning author will discuss his book about the single naval battle that happened there during the American Revolution. James L. Nelson, the author of fourteen historicallythemed books, will speak on his latest book, “Benedict Arnold’s Navy” at Camp Dudley Aug. 30. James Nelson The event, sponsored by the Literacy Volunteers of Essex and Franklin Counties, will include a reception with light refreshments, and is followed by a book signing. A native of Maine, Nelson had an early interest in ships and the sea. After college, he became a professional sailor in California and the state of Washington, working aboard – and helping to build – replicas of 16th century ships. Nelson began writing in 1992, producing several works of historical fiction. He eventually moved back to Maine where, in 2002, he began writing non-fiction, continuing to focus exclusively on American maritime history. “Benedict Arnold’s Navy” tells the story of the rag-tag fifteen-vessel fleet under the command of Benedict Arnold, which lost the Battle of Valcour Island but nevertheless helped win the Revolutionary War for America. Nelson has appeared on the History Channel, the Discovery Channel and C-SPAN as an authority of various aspects of maritime history.

Follow School Safety Signs! Yellow flashing lights on a school bus means the bus is preparing to stop and load or unload passengers. The red lights mean that loading or unloading is taking place. NYS Vehicle and Traffic Law (1174) requires all motorists to always stop for a school bus with red lights flashing on all roads, including multi-lane or divided highways, on school grounds, in driveways or parking lots everywhere. Each year in the United States about 10 children are killed by motorists who pass school buses which have stopped to load or unload passengers. During the 1994-95 school year in New York State, 9 children were injured by motorists who passed loading or unloading school buses on the right or left side of the bus.



• Instill child safety • Obey all traffic lights & signs • Be prepared to stop when driving near parks and playgrounds • Look for the unexpected when children are congregated • Drive to suit conditions and situations • Use good judgement when picking up children in playground areas • Exercise extreme care on rainy or bad weather days • Always stop your vehicle for school buses loading & unloading

• Stay out of the road while waiting for the bus • Board the bus without pushing or shoving • Take a seat promptly and stay there until it’s time to leave the bus • Don’t stick your head or arms out of the window • Don’t throw things about the bus or out the windows • Keep reasonably quiet • Keep feet, books and other things out of the aisle • Leave the bus carefully • If you must cross the road, wait for the driver’s sign to cross

WESTPORT — High Peaks Hospice and Palliative Care will be hosting their second annual square dance benefit and fundraiser Friday, Sept. 11, at 7 p.m. at the Essex County Fairgrounds. Local square dance caller Gary Finney will bring his usual enthusiasm and great music to recreate the excitement of a genuine barn dance from yesteryear. A special feature this year will be the “Kiss A Cow” event. A group of local celebrities and politicians will be in attendance and tickets will be available for purchase to “vote” for the one you most want to see kiss a cow at the end of the evening. All proceeds will benefit High Peaks Hospice & Palliative Care, serving patients throughout the Adirondacks, regardless of ability to pay.

“It's part of the risk the agency assumed when they decided to test... their sadly mistaken view of the law by pursing an expensive and debilitating enforcement action against a small business,” he said. The case arose out of an APA determination to assess a $50,000 fine on the farm for building three two-story modular homes on resource management land without an APA permit. A cease-and-desist order prevented further construction on the unfinished homes during litigation. In November 2008, however, Acting Essex County Supreme Court Justice Richard B. Meyer ruled in favor of Lewis Family Farm, finding that the houses were for agricultural use and therefore exempt from APA permit requirements. Represented by State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo’s office, the APA appealed the decision, but a five-member mid-level appeals court unanimously affirmed Meyer ’s ruling in their July 16 decision. The loss represented the first major one for the APA in an Article 78 proceeding. “Until this case, the APA had an aura of invincibility,” said Lewis, who claimed previous attempts to challenge the agency have failed because too many area attorneys seek advice from the APA on how to handle cases against them.

The Attorney General’s office had until 5 p.m. on Aug. 17 to request another appeal, but declined to do so. The motion for legal fees had the same deadline, but was filed Aug. 13. “The state will not appeal the Appellate Division ruling regarding the Lewis Family Farm,” stated APA spokesman Keith McKeever. “The Adirondack Park Agency believes the impact of the court's decision is limited because of the nature of the case.” But advocates of Lewis Family Farm disagree, including the New York Farm Bureau, which submitted a brief supporting the farm. The organization had urged the state not to pursue an appeal following Meyer ’s decision. “We are grateful to Governor Paterson for recognizing that pursuit of this case was not in the continued public interest,” said Dean Norton, president of New York Farm Bureau. “This case was an important precedent for the rights of our farmers to conduct basic agricultural practices within the Adirondack Park, which is why we fought so vigorously for the Lewis family.” Although the case was strictly about farmworker housing, Privitera said, it sent a “clear signal” the APA needs to follow the law the way it’s written; not the way they interpret it.

‘A rogue agency’ “We fought this case because somewhere along the line, somebody’s got to draw a line in the sand and tell the APA, ‘You’re off the reservation, you’re a rogue agency and you need new management,’” said Lewis, who has long blamed APA administration for stifling the viability of Adirondack communities. “We need the APA, but not this APA.” Lewis called for the resignation of top APA officials, including APA chairman Curt Stiles, legal counsel John Banta, and enforcement program supervisor Paul Van Cott. Privitera said the APA was motivated by personal animus in its suit against the farm and misguided in its attempt to hinder farm development, arguing viable farms protect open space. “This was not just a legal mistake; this was a major policy blunder to disregard the beauty and art of the APA Act as a protection for farms,” he stated. “It was never about the environment; it was never about visual impact or anything contained in the provisions of the [APA] Act.”

‘An increment of justice’ In addition to the $208,000, the farm has also suffered other setbacks as a result of the lawsuit, said Privitera, who called the recovery of attorney’s fees “an increment of justice.” “We have been unable to use these unfinished farmhouses for two years because of this suit,” he said. Also, the farm spent another $78,000 in legal fees that are not recoverable because they were incurred before the suit formally began. “The Lewis Family Farm’s business plans have been devastated by the agency,” wrote Lewis in his motion affidavit. While Privitera said suing for damages would be an option, neither he nor Lewis would comment on whether they would consider doing so. If history is an indicator, the motion for legal fees is likely to be granted in court. Privitera said the government is almost always ordered to pay when such a motion is brought forth, and many such claims are not even challenged. “Very rarely does the federal or state government ever assume the very heavy burden to show their position was substantially justified,” he said. Meyer is charged with issuing a decision on the motion, and a Sept. 4 hearing has been scheduled, but will only be held if the judge deems it necessary.

The service was led by Diocesan Administrator Fr. Terry LaValley, who is serving in the temporary absence of a bishop. He said the generations of church-goers at St. Philip of Jesus have been blessed by such an inspiring place of worship. “This has truly become a house of prayer for all people,” he said in his homily. “I congratulate you as you make this significant milestone in the history of your parish.” As part of the celebration, officiants consecrated a new crucifix to hang above the church's tabernacle. The cross, made out of basswood, was crafted by local woodworker John Anderson, while the corpus was handcrafted and shipped from Rome, Italy. Following mass, State Assemblywoman Teresa Sayward spoke on the value of enduring, community-supporting churches, and presented the church with a resolution from the Assembly with congratulations on its centennial milestone. St. Philip of Jesus parish first opened for midnight mass on Dec. 24, 1909 under the leadership of Fr. Hector Mignaron. Named for a 16th century Franciscan friar who was martyred in Japan, it began with a group of 60 families who contributed, on average, most of their yearly income to fund its construction. Prior to then, the many French and Irish Catholic families living in Willsboro had to travel to St. Joseph's church in nearby Essex to attend mass. Today the church is led by Rev. Scott Seymour, who spoke of the church's historic and ongoing ministry in the community. “We're not just celebrating bricks and mortar;” said Seymour, “we're celebrating living stone.” Seymour said at least 60 people had contributed their time and talent in some way to the 100th anniversary celebration, which he called an important milestone. “I think it's an opportunity to reflect on our history and look at building a stronger church for tomorrow,” he said.

A park in trouble, part II


ast week’s column, which focused on the “state of the park” and the dearth of opportunities for area youth, generated a great deal of interest and concern. Several readers remarked on the ‘Catch 22’ aspect of life in the Adirondacks. Sue H. from Schroon Lake remarked, “It’s (the park) a beautiful place to live, but no one can afford to live here! There’s nothing but low paying jobs, with few benefits or just seasonal employment, which requires long hours during a short timeframe. What kind of future is that?” From Upper Jay, John L. asked, “If the state’s really worried about the future (of Adirondack youth) they should offer incentives to bring them home after they finish college. The federal government offers loans for medical school students, which requires doctors to work in a rural area for several years to pay off their debt. But, what could local students do around here after they finished college, work for ORDA or the highway department?” Many changes have occurred over the years to bring about present situation, where an aging population is amplified by an exodus of youth. The last major boost to the region’s population occurred when the Northway was completed in 1967. After the interstate was completed, many Adirondack communities experienced an influx of newcomers. Prior to the completion of the interstate, most employment opportunities were limited to just the local communities. The Northway allowed workers to commute many miles to work in the cities of Plattsburgh, Glens Falls or Saratoga. Before the interstate, road trips were limited to traveling on the winding, old Route 9. In Elizabethtown alone, over a half dozen families relocated to town on the coattails of the new highway. Many of the newcomers were young professionals and most arrived with families in tow. Across the region, local school systems experienced a significant boost in class sizes. Today, the trend has been reversed. Young people are leaving the park, while those that are returning are often retired. Bill Osborn, director of Tourism and Economic Development for Hamilton County, is a prime example. “I’m a composite of the typical Adirondack resident today,” Osborn revealed. “I was born here and left for business opportunities elsewhere. I made my money and decided to retire here. Others have done the same, but they settled for second homes and usually leave during the cold months.” It’s a fact that children grow up faster today, with less in-

June P. from Paul Smiths. “Our region needs a new industry. Sure, we will always have the service industry, I’m a composite but who wants to be servants in there own of the typical land?” Adirondack resident “The state has taken away the ability for today. many Adirondack residents to earn a living, — Bill Osborn they’ve locked up the land in regulations,” explained Bill Osborn. “They must invest as much money in the preservation of the park’s communities as they have in the preservation of the park’s land.” “We need to find an environmentally friendly, low impact industry to bring their business to the park. We need to have economic development incentives and they have to be significant. We need software designers, production services, film or other employers,” Osborn continued, “and with the proper infrastructure, local communities can promote telecommuting so that their employees can take advantage of the quality of life options the region offers and still maintain a career.” In essence, the Adirondacks can no longer be viewed as a giant amusement park for tourists and second home owners. If communities are going to thrive rather than simply survive, there is a desperate need for well paying jobs that rely on intellect rather than extraction. The same quality of life issues, which many consider so important in attracting new business and new homeowners to the region, are rapidly deteriorating as school districts condense, communities contract and bright flight draws youth from their home towns If visitors begin to perceive the region as consisting of small, dying towns separated by long stretches of desolate roadways, the future of the park will be sealed. The Adirondack region must offer more than a few, seasonally prosperous communities like Lake Placid, Lake George and Old Forge. The effort will require imaginative minds, creative opportunities and a major investment in infrastructure. If preservation of the land is the ultimate goal for the park, there must also be a corresponding effort initiated to insure the preservation of the park’s small towns. These communities are central to the ‘quality of life’ that makes the region so unique. The endeavor will require a major investment in our youth, for they will determine the future of both land and community. We must provide them with an inheritance that offers more than busing tables or turning down beds.

nocence and greater pressures than ever before. They are exposed to more due to the proliferation of the new media. Cable and satellite TV provide over a hundred channels, and the Internet offers even greater exposure. With the click of a mouse, today’s youth have the world at their fingertips. And often, what they see is much more interesting and exciting than what is available locally. They watch their parents working at two or three jobs while struggling to get by and they don't want to do the same. Young people need excitement, they want to have fun. They need opportunity and many don’t believe it can be found here. Unfortunately, many local communities can no longer support or offer recreational options like a bowling alley, a movie theatre or a gymnasium. There are a number of communities that don’t even have a local diner or similar social center, where kids can gather. Although local communities continually strive to provide options for visitors, they have often neglected to provide similar opportunities for their youth. Is it any wonder that when the day comes for a local kid to get out of town, they jump at the option? Despite a plethora of outdoor recreational pursuits, there is very little else left to offer them. Across the park, options for viable, lifelong employment opportunities have largely diminished over the past 20 to 30 years. The days of extraction industries are gone. The mines of Tahawus, Witherbee and Lyon Mountain have all closed. The forest products industry is similarly withering. Today, the Ticonderoga pencils used by the children in Ticonderoga are no longer manufactured with wood from our local forests. Globalization has allowed cheaper wood from Malaysia to be more cost effective in the manufacture of pencils than the trees in our own backyard. Small towns are atrophying from the lack of opportunity. We must begin to offer employment options beyond tourism. Communities need business, but businesses require consumers. If if weren’t for the friendly Stewart’s Shops, many North Country communities wouldn’t even have a local grocery store or gas station. The Olympic Regional Development Authority has provided a beneficial investment in Lake Placid, and it has in North Creek. A trickle down affect has also helped some of the peripheral towns, such as Wilmington, Chestertown and Saranac Lake. However, there is a palpable resentment from some of the park’s other communities over this arrangement, while many downstate residents view the situation as living on the state’s dole. “Lake Placid wouldn’t exist if the state didn’t subsidize it. Neither would Tupper Lake, if Sunmount closed,” argued

Officials object to destruction of historic structures on state-owned land By Jonathan Alexander RAY BROOK — While the state Dept. of Environmental Conservation is defending itself against arguments from environmentalists who claim the agency is not being aggressive enough in removing structures from state wilderness, local officials are decrying that such destruction of 100-year old buildings lacks respect for Adirondack culture and history. Under a mandate of the State Land Master Plan, the DEC has for years been removing or destroying fire towers, lean-tos and ATV trails. The practice has gained prominence as the state continues to acquire additional land for the Forest Preserve. But for local officials, the practice of burning down 100year old structures is nothing short of ethnocide – robbing the local population of their heritage simply to conform to a vague notion of “wilderness character.” Newcomb Supervisor George Canon would like to see the historic structures preserved. He serves on the board of

directors of Adirondack Architectural Heritage, an advocacy group seeking to have Adirondack buildings recognized in the same manner as structures elsewhere. ”It’s extremely important not to lose our culture here,” Canon said Tuesday. “To lose that is to lose our way of life.” In a letter published in a recent edition of Adirondack Explorer, DEC Regional Directors Betsy Lowe and Judy Drabicki defended DEC against attacks from those who argue the agency has not pursued the removal of non-conforming structures with enough vigor. The letter observes that DEC has aggressively undertaken the removal of 10 fire towers on recently acquired state Forest Preserve. Sixteen fire towers have also been removed from state lands of other classifications. DEC has also closed 130 miles of Jeep and ATV trails. An additional 97 miles of snowmobile trails have also been closed on recently acquired state land as well as 560 tent platforms and three lean-to clusters. “DEC is engaged in Park-wide planning with a number of other state agencies to improve compliance with the SLMP,” the letter states. “We would emphatically argue

that DEC is with the plan and working hard to meet the best interests of the public.” But Canon argues that the systematic destruction of structures built by the ancestors of Adirondack residents — especially fire towers and swinging bridges – is a primary problem with the State Land Master Plan. Canon suggested that before any private group or entity transfers land to the state, they should include a restriction that the structures must not be destroyed.But DEC has maintained that its practice of destroying fire towers and other structures is in line with the State Land Master Plan. “Non-conforming uses resulting from newly-classified wilderness areas will be removed as rapidly as possible,” the SLMP states. The document specifically lists fire towers as being non-conforming within wilderness areas. Local officials are calling for the SLMP to be reopened to change the law regarding provisions they see as a brash lack of respect for the human population in the park. But Adirondack Park Agency Chairman Curt Stiles said this week that agency reform and amendments to the APA Act should come first.
