By Matt Bosley matt@denpubs.com ESSEX COUNTY — A political advertisement that was published in the Valley News last week is generating increased discord between some Essex County Republicans. The half-page advertisement provides a list of “facts” as to why Essex County Republicans chose to endorse Clinton County Assistant District Attorney Kristy Sprague over current Essex County District Attorney Julie Garcia. Garcia, who is running against Sprague in the Sept. 15 Republican primary election, said the advertisement is rife with lies and misrepThis story was first resentations. posted online at 3 “I am disgusted that the p.m., September 9 on leadership would use money donated by Republicans to www.thevalleynews.org slander an elected official,” said Garcia. “The Essex County Republican Party leadership has a broken moral compass and will do anything to maintain power and control of our county. What little credibility they had left has been destroyed by this outrageous ad.” “The absence of a proven prosecutor has given Essex County one of the lowest conviction and highest dismissal rates in our history,” the ad states. “I have provided the Board of Supervisors and the media with the DCJS statistics with regard to this blatant lie,” said Garcia. The figures she references show that, in most cases, conviction rates from 2006-2008 are actually slightly higher than they were during the term of former DA Ronald Briggs. They also follow a similar pattern to conviction rates in Clinton County. The advertisement also claimed that Garcia has prosecuted very few cases personally at trial, and that the case of People v. Steven Baker was the only one where she “made more than a cameo appearance.” “This is another blatant lie,” said Garcia, claiming she has transcripts from at least two other cases showing her active participation throughout the trial. “I have appeared on over 300 cases in Essex County Court. I have the defendant's name and the date of the appearance if you would like to have this information.” “Of course there has been very little trial time; less than two percent of our cases go to trial,” Garcia added. “Sprague knows that between two to five percent of all cases go to trial, but she continues to mislead the public.” The advertisement said Garcia’s office has the largest attorney staff ever, which Garcia also said is not true, noting that she has one less ADA funded by taxpayer dollars than Briggs had. Garcia also took issue with claims she intentionally sent a convicted sex offender to serve papers at Sprague’s home and that her office has wasted taxpayer dollars. She noted that her budget has decreased 12 percent since 2004 when Briggs was in office. Essex County Republican Committee Chair Ronald Jackson purchased the advertisement using committee funds. He said that many of the statements in the advertisement were based on information he and others obtained from county court records.

County borrows to repair road in Lewis $650,000 bond approved By Matt Bosley matt@denpubs.com ELIZABETHTOWN — The Essex County Board of Supervisors voted in favor of borrowing $650,000 at their regular meeting Sept 8. The money will be used towards repairs to County Route 12 between Lewis and Willsboro, also known as Stowersville Road. A section of the road has been slowly disappearing as the Boquet River has been washing away a bank more than 50 feet below. County Manager Dan Palmer presented photos of the road that showed it being claimed by the receding slope. “I think poses a liability that would probably cost this county a lot more than what it is going to cost us to

This section of Stowersville Road has been awaiting repairs of a receding slope for nearly two years. Now that proper permits have been secured for the repairs, the Essex County Board of Supervisors voted to borrow $650,000 toward fixing it.

Ironman benefits local nonprofits By Matt Bosley matt@denpubs.com SARANAC LAKE — Thanks to the Lake Placid Ironman triathlon and the Adirondack Community Trust, a few lucky nonprofits are getting a helping hand. High Peaks Hospice & Palliative Care, Families First of Essex County, and the Town of Jay were all among the dozens of recipients of grants from the North America Sports Community Fund at Adirondack Community Trust.

Another thing I was very proud of was to see an emergency event go into action quickly. I sat in on the local planning committee to update our local emergency plans in case of any type of event that could come up quickly. The recent accident on the Northway this past weekend put the county plan into effect at once; taking all North bound traffic off the Northway and detouring them until they could get back on at the Lewis exit. It showed me how important it is to have these plans in place long before they happen, so that things can happen quickly. Don’t forget this weekend is the New York State Heritage Weekend and our main historic places are open for you to come and take a look at what we have as a community to offer the visiting public. These places will be open Saturday the 12 from 10 to 4 and Sunday the 12 from 1 to 4, the Adsit cabin, Heritage Museum, Noblewood area, 1812 Homestead and the Visitor ’s Center where the school Children’s art work is on display.

few weeks ago, I ended this column by noting our ongoing shortage of volunteer firefighters and EMTs. The problem was brought home to me vividly last Friday, when we tried to respond to the tragic accident on the Northway. As you probably know by now, the driver of a minivan lost control of his vehicle between exits 31 and 32 northbound. Two passengers were ejected as the vehicle rolled several times before coming to rest against some trees. Those ejected were a 6year-old girl, who survived, and a 53-yearold woman, who, sadly, did not. I was working at home when the call came through, and I was able to drop everything and rush off to the firehouse. When I got there a few minutes later, both our ambulances were in the driveway, along with an engine and the rescue truck, ready to get underway. The fire trucks were put into service quickly, but the ambulances were held up for several valuable minutes, because we didn't have enough EMTs on hand to staff them. We had to wait, as the minutes dragged by and our frustration grew. Finally we were able to roll. Right now we only have a handful of qualified volunteer EMTs on the emergency squad. Some of them work in neighboring towns, and at any given time the others might be out of range for a quick re-

sponse. I'm still in firefighter training, and I plan to begin EMT training as soon as possible, so that I can pitch in. We badly need more people. If you feel like you might be able to serve, please think about joining, especially if you have any medical training. One thing I can promise you—you'll be working with the best. That was my second lesson of the day. We may be shortstaffed, but the people we do have are absolutely superb at what they do. Word is the injured passengers, including the little girl who was ejected from the vehicle, will make full recoveries. I'm pretty sure I know who deserves much of the credit. I watched that person at work—calm, efficient, careful, and surprisingly tender— and it's something I won't soon forget. We are truly fortunate to have that level of expertise in our community. But no one worker can do it alone, nor even several workers, no matter how good. We need more help. On a lighter note, I'd like to thank all the generous patrons who bought raffle tickets to support the Shakespeare-in-the-Park performance of Henry V last Sunday. A special thank-you goes to Paul Rossi, who once again donated one of his gorgeous paintings for us to raffle off, and to Dogwood Bread Company in Wadhams, where owners Courtney and Keri Fair let me sell tickets during pizza night prime time.

all seems to be a time to get organized and clean things up, this past weekend here in Willsboro it was yard sale after yard sale of people disposing of unwanted items and hoping to attract new owners. It was perfect weather for any outdoor activities this past week. Our population is fast going down as our seasonal residents are fast leaving for their winter residence. Another move we find sad to learn of is the changing of priest at the Catholic Church. We understand that Father Scott will be leaving this Parish by the end of this month, he has been a great spiritual person for our community and we will truly miss him. The Champlain National Bank has been doing customer relation events all summer and this past week they were collecting for the United Way campaign, a very worthy community project. We are pleased to learn that Joyce Blanchard is once again back home after another hospital stay. Joanne & George Betters are the proud grandparents of a new grandson, their daughter Jill & Joe Restifo are the proud new parents of Philip James Restifo born on Aug. 29. The last few years it has been wonderful to have good movies available to us every other weekend, but how exciting to learn that now we are going to have a movie produced here in Willsboro.

Recently, our newspaper inserts had coupons for one free loaf of a brand-name bread, a free single-serving beverage and a free air freshener. There's nothing better than getting something for free with little or no effort. Or is there? You may be surprised to learn that running right to the store with a coupon for a free item isn't necessarily the best way to use these types of coupons. When I get one of these coupons I file it away and then I watch the sales. If my store features this item in a "Buy One, Get One Free" (BOGO) sale, that's when I redeem the coupon for the free item... because I will then get two of that item for free instead of one! Why does this work? I'll give you an example. I have a coupon for a free bag of frozen vegetables. The coupon states that it has a value of up to $1.99, which is what the store will receive when they redeem the coupon. That's also the normal price of the vegetables. But when the store puts the vegetables on sale BOGO, they're selling two bags for $1.99. If I walk in and

buy two bags and pay cash, I'll pay $1.99 and get two, right? The same thing happens when I use my coupon for one free bag of vegetables. The coupon covers the $1.99 cost of the first bag, and the second bag is free. By Jill Cataldo This is all part of playing the coupon game. Getting one item for free is good, but getting two items for free is even better! Now, if my coupon gets close to the expiration date, of course I will redeem it and get my free product. But it often pays to play the waiting game, as the BOGO sales will play out in your favor more often than not. Over the course of the past few months, I kept track of the coupons for free items that I accumulated: 38 in all. I held all of them and watched closely, matching them to BOGO sales over that time period. During that time frame, 31 of the items went on sale BOGO. By playing the waiting game, I was able to get 62 free items with those 31 coupons! And with the remaining seven coupons, of course, I still got those seven items for free, too. This truly is the best way to use coupons for one free item. You're getting two... for the price of none! Next week I'll share another best-kept coupon secret with you.

Driving an automobile is risky business D

riving a car is one of the first milestones that is reached on the road to adulthood. The freedom feels good. Cranking up the radio, rolling down the windows and driving too fast is something that most of us experienced as new drivers. Americans love affair with the automobile has come at a fatal cost, however. In 1899, 26 people died from automobile accidents. In 1972, deaths from automobile accidents hit an all time high of 54,589. In 2006 41,648 died in car crashes. In 2008, the National Safety Council announced that the death rate from motor vehicles hit its lowest rate since records have been kept in the 1920’s. Even though teens drive less than all other age groups other than the oldest drivers, they have high rates of fatal and non-fatal crash rates. They are four times more likely to crash than drivers twenty years of age or older. In fact, 33 percent of all teen deaths between 13-19 years of age are due to automobile crashes. Some states are considering graduated licenses in an effort to reduce teenage automobile accidents. According to the National Highway Traffic Administration, the number of drinking drivers with BACs at or above the current legal limit has declined dramatically. One measure examined drinking behaviors on weekend nights, a time frame where drinking and driving is often happening. This measure revealed that in 1973, 7.5 percent of drivers had BACs at or above 0.08. In 2007, the rate for the same measure had fallen by 71 percent to 2.2 percent of drivers at or above the legal limit of 0.08. Another important finding of the study was that the percentage of drinking drivers that included any positive BAC had also declined dramatically. Males were nearly twice as likely to drive while impaired as female drivers. The rate of impaired rivers was nearly five times as high during late nighttime; 1 a.m. to 3 a.m. Motorcycle riders were nearly twice as likely to be impaired, at 5.6 percent as passenger car drivers at 2.3 percent. Pickup truck drivers were the second most likely vehicle

type to have an impaired driver at 3.3 percent. The rate of underage drinkers, 16 to 21 years of age, in fatal crashes with a BAC of 0.08 or higher decreased dramatically from 47.7 percent in 1973 to 23.1 percent in 1996. The period between 1997 and 2007 saw a slight increase in the rate from 23.1 to 24.1 percent. While younger drivers are less likely to drive after drinking, they had many more By Scot Hurlburt crashes when they did drink. Driver inexperience has been cited as the reason for the higher crash rates while drinking and driving. Teenagers are more likely to use cell phones while driving and cell phone use has been identified as a risk factor. Cell phone users are four times more likely to be in a serious accident. Drivers that use cell phones are more likely to crash than drunk drivers. When excessive speed, poor road conditions or an older car in disrepair is added to the equation, the risk index becomes dangerously high. While some accidents are unavoidable, those that can be prevented, such as accidents caused by excessive speeding, alcohol use, and driver distractions such as cell phone use or texting need our continued attention. If you have a young driver in your house they are at an elevated risk level, especially sixteen year old drivers. Providing a high level of supervision during this time may be more important than ever before. Remember, all kids count.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR • VALLEY NEWS - 7

Letters To The Editor

Garcia the clear choice To the editor: I have known the Sprague family for years and I have a tremendous amount of respect and admiration for the entire family. I know that Kristy has a wonderful reputation in Clinton County as anassistant district attorney and I bear her no illwill. But for the past few years I have worked very closely with our current District Attorney Julie Garcia. I admire her work ethic and hold her in the highest regards. Let me elaborate. We, in Ticonderoga, over the years have taken an active role in CYC, Connecting Youth with Communities. We have strived to identify those elements that are considered risk factors for teens and have chosen several strategies to negate each risk factor. A lot of work and time have gone into this program, and a lot of entities have become partners in our pursuit. One of those partners has been the district attorney's office. Julie has recognized the importance of the mission of the CYC and has committed her resources. I was most impressed at her presence at several of the "candlelight vigils" that have been held in the Bicentennial Park, vigils that have been held to honor and pay lasting respect to those who have been tragically killed in automobile accidents where drivers were under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Ms. Garcia has also been a partner in the B.E.S.T. campaign. This campaign is a joint effort to recognize and deter the use of driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs. Ms. Garcia also represents the citizens of Essex County on court days here in Ticonderoga. I have tried to figure out what went so wrong for Ms. Garcia's reputation in the past year. It seems to stem from a committee meeting where she questioned the need for a group of people or a director to help distribute DWI funds throughout the County. It seemed to some that she was bashing our County Clerk Joe Provoncha. I was present. If I thought that to be the case I would have been on her like a bee on honey. Joe is a dear friend, a huge advocate for the town of Ticonderoga, and one I most admire. He has taken me under his wing, given me advice and has been a close ally. Ms. Garcia just stated her opinion, and the bashing started. More than once I questioned the status quo of the Republican Party faithful, voted my conscious and never was I taken to task. And I know I was not the only one. But for some reason she incurred the wrath of the Republican leaders for something I consider far less than ones I have done. She has been railroaded and this is what offends me most. But this election should be about a candidate who has demonstrated her integrity, who has worked hard for the residents of Essex County, who has been a factor in helping eradicate the serious problems with drinking and drug use in our communities, who has been willing to speak her mind not fearful of the repercussions. This election should be about continuing the work of our current district attorney, one who has been firm but fair. She has demonstrated her willingness to spend the hours necessary to make our county safe. If you carefully examine the facts what has she done so wrong for her to lose support? I can only state that I unequivocally endorse and support her candidacy. Robert C. Dedrick, Ticonderoga supervisor

Hommes should be re-elected To the editor: I am a Democrat and cannot vote in the Primary, but I endorse Henry Hommes in his re-election to the office of Essex County Sheriff. In the past, I worked with Henry Hommes in his capacity as a New York State Trooper and BCI Investigator. I always found him to be competent, trustworthy and straightforward when carrying out his law enforcement duties. More recently, I have worked with Henry as the Under-Sheriff and as Sheriff. He has always been considerate, kind and willing to help inmates and their family with problems while they were incarcerated. On a personal level, I know that Henry has been a dedicated family man, especially when his son was badly injured. He cared for him and nursed him back to health. This demonstrat-

Support Tyler for Sheriff

NO SALES TAX! Ask about our Outdoor Model

To the editor: It is my pleasure to support Michael "Ike" Tyler for the position of Essex County Sheriff. He is ideally suited for the position. Ike is a man of integrity, is honest, and is direct. He has an outstanding record of public service. I had the opportunity to observe his dedication, serving with Mr. Tyler on the Westport Town Board. At that time, our Board had to deal with the resulting years of neglect of our water and sewer systems. Throughout deliberations, Ike was sensitive to the cost of the project and consistently looked out for the best interest of our taxpayers, especially those on a fixed income. Ike is a team player. His experience as a correction officer and a college degree in business administration will serve him well in developing training programs for staff, maintaining fiscal responsibility, and mitigating duplication of effort with other law enforcement agencies. It is my belief that Mr. Tyler’s fresh ideas will result in needed efficiency and professionalism at the county facility. His reputation as a fair, firm, and consistent individual will serve him well in that capacity. Rarely has an individual’s training, experience, education, and demeanor prepared one so well for the office of Essex County Sheriff. We all know that our Republican Party nationally and locally has suffered recently. Ike Tyler might just be the man to restore dignity and respect to our "Grand Ole Party." Please support Michael "Ike" Tyler for Essex County Sheriff in the Republican primary on Tuesday, Sept. 15. Ray Spadafora, Westport

Sprague a skilled prosecutor To the editor: As a former First Assistant District Attorney for Essex County, I write this letter to express my wholehearted support for Kristy Sprague to be its next District Attorney. Kristy possesses an awareness of justice which is rarely found in a prosecutor. She is not only highly skilled and experienced in the courtroom, she is fair. Her decisions and actions are informed by an intelligence which reflects both reason and common sense. Most importantly, Kristy listens and keeps an open mind. She never stakes out arbitrary and unachievable positions simply because they may sound good in the newspaper or on television. After having been a prosecutor for eight years, and a defense attorney for another seven, I have developed the deepest respect for Kristy as I have watched her become an outstanding advocate. Whenever I have a case which she is prosecuting, I know that she will thoroughly review the evidence and take into full consideration the case’s strengths and weaknesses as she determines what is just and fair. In my experience, I have had the misfortunate of dealing with prosecutors who put conviction rates above all else. Knowing Kristy as I do, seeking justice – not just numbers for the people of Essex County will be her priority.

Groups work to combat invasive beetles

44160

WILLSBORO — Anyone traveling along the many highways and byways through the Adirondacks may have noticed those purple contraptions that look like box kites hanging in trees. Those unique contraptions are part of a regional effort to detect the presence of a nasty pest called the Emerald Ash Borer, an invasive species that threatens to kill virtually all the ash trees in New York and other forests in the Northeast. Protect the Adirondacks (PROTECT) has joined the ranks of a team of experts and citizen scientists coordinated by the USDA who deploy these insect traps and monitor local forests for the ash borer and other invasive species. According to Mike DiNunzio, PROTECT's staff ecologist, invasive pests and pathogens like the Emerald Ash Borer pose one of the most serious threats our forests have faced in thousands of years. “We need to deal quickly and effectively with these

problems,” he said, “while respecting the letter and spirit of the laws that protect the 'forever wild' forest preserve, and the importance of healthy forests to our economy.” PROTECT is a nonprofit organization arising from a 2009 consolidation of the Residents' Committee to Protect the Adirondacks (RCPA) and The Association for the Protection of the Adirondacks (AFPA). In keeping with its commitment to the stewardship of the Park's public and private lands, PROTECT has been actively engaged in a program coordinated by the USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, in collaboration with NYS-DEC and other partners to gain early detection of invasive forest pests like the Emerald Ash Borer and Asian Longhorned Beetle in the Adirondack Park. "Invasive species are a profound threat to the restoration and conservation of Adirondack forests," said Jeremy Caggiano, PROTECT's Director of Adirondack Stewardship. Caggiano works with private landowners in the Park who wish to enroll their lands in the Forest Stewardship Council's green-certified forestry program, which

not only assures routine assessment of woodland conditions but also provides professional guidance to preserve the health and vitality of the working forest landscape. PROTECT's involvement in the USDA's Emerald Ash Borer survey program is spearheaded by Josh Wilson, the organization's Conservation Associate. “We've been actively involved in monitoring for EAB in Northern Essex Country this summer and have set and monitored traps in the towns of Jay, Upper Jay, Keene, Wilmington, Lewis, and Willsboro,” he said. “We intend to expand our efforts to include ground-level surveys for Asian Longhorned Beetle in high-risk forested areas around the Adirondacks this late summer and early fall. These volunteer surveys and the information generated by them will help inform future detection efforts and will be critical for monitoring pest movement inside the Park.” Wilson emphasized the need for public involvement and cooperation with prevention efforts: “Citizens are truly the first line of defense against invasive forest pests,” he said. “We need to recruit more

Protect the Adirondacks is one of a few local organizations in the Adirondacks assisting government agencies in monitoring the purple prism-shaped traps. landowners and citizen stewards to help monitor our public and private forests for the presence of destructive pests like the Emerald Ash Borer and Asian Longhorned Beetle. “Early detection is crucial in the effort to prevent widespread establishment of these insects in our treasured Forest Preserve, private timberlands, and communities."

From page 1 repair it if we don’t do anything,” said Moriah supervisor Tom Scozzafava. Westport supervisor Dan Connell agreed, noting a similar problem his town encountered with the deteriorating bank along Merriam Forge Road. “It was a life and death situation,” he said. “If we don’t do this correctly, we are going to be going back spending more money because it is going to continue to sluff away if we don’t get it away from that bank, so I am going to support this resolution.” County DPW supervisor Fred Buck said sheet piling would need to be installed

along the banks of the river to prevent further erosion and the level of the road would need to be lowered to make the slope more manageable. “The river takes a little dog leg bend in right in that area and there is no way of turning that around, so we are going to take all the weight off the slope, drop the road about eight feet, and put a retaining wall up on the left-hand side,” said Buck. “We have already purchased the right-of-way for the property’s and that should take care of the problem.” Work began on the road nearly two years ago as traffic was redirected away from the deteriorating bank. Problems with permitting and right-of-way issues delayed further work until now, Buck said. “It took us almost two years and acquiring the property,” he said. “There was some problems but we finally have everything now.” A local contractor, Reale Construction out of Ticonderoga, entered the lowest bid for the project. Buck said they could start work as early as Sept. 14 if the funds were allotted. Two separate resolutions to issue the $650,000 bond and use the funds for repairs for the road were each passed unanimously.

From page 1 which has hosted the Ironman event for the past nine years. Darsie Townsend of High Peaks Hospice & Palliative Care said High Peaks Hospice was pleased to be awarded a $750 grant from the fund, which she said will be used for direct patient care. “High Peaks Hospice & Palliative Care receives no regular funds from either the state or federal governments,” said Townsend. “Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance providers reimburse approximately 85% of actual costs and Medicare is threatening a 6.6% decrease in funding as of October 2009.” Townsend said the hospice turns no one away, regardless of their ability to pay. As a result, they rely on generosity such as that displayed by the Ironman fund. In Elizabethtown, Families First of Essex County received a similar grant. Executive director JoAnne Caswell said the money will be used to fund a week-long day camp for children with emotional or behavioral challenges. The town of Jay received $5,000 from the North America Sports Community Fund, which will be used to offset the cost of new soccer fields in Au Sable Forks’ Grove Park, said town supervisor Randy Douglas. “Due to the growth of participants in our youth soccer program, we currently do not have the facilities to accomodate their needs,” he said. “The grant from the Adirondack Community Trust will give us additional resources to offset the cost of obtaining items such as top soil, grass seed, bleachers, a scoreboard, and other necessities.” The North America Sports Community Fund is supplied by donations, which are tax deductible through the Adirondack Community Trust. For more information on how to contribute to the fund, contact Andrea Grout at the ACT office at Andrea@GenerousACT.org or 523-9904.

Sprague said, while she did not place the ad, she has had a lot of people question why she was chosen over Garcia, the incumbent. “The committee obviously felt it necessary to buy an ad to convey their position to the voters as they have a right to

“In my 23 years in politics, this is the worst I’ve seen it,” said Moriah Supervisor Thomas Scozzafava, who recently resigned as a Republican Committee member. Scozzafava, who has been a strong supporter of Garcia, said the recent advertisement is one of a string of events that have created friction between party members. While Scozzafava granted that Garcia was open to scrutiny by virtue of her position, it was inappropriate for the advertisement to present information he called “not factual.” Robert Dedrick, a Republican and supervisor of Ticonderoga who also supports Garcia, agreed that the District Attorney race has widened divisions among Essex County Republicans. “I would take exception if a few people wrote that up and distributed it without the blessing of committee members from all the 18 towns,” he said.

do,” Sprague said. “From my review, this ad states nothing more than the thoughts and opinions based upon factual information presented to the committee through an interview process that all candidates participated in.” Sprague, who moved her residence to Willsboro Sept. 8, confirmed the information as stated, noting it reflected information she presented at the recent debate. “I found 13 written decisions where cases have been dismissed for the prosecution's failure to adequately present the matters to Grand Jury,” she said. “I know there are 16 dismissals showing in the county records.” “Ms. Garcia tends to change things around in a more favorable way,” said Jackson, noting that if her budget is compared to all the years Briggs was in office, as opposed to just 2004, there is actually a slight increase. “It depends on how you look at it.” According to Jackson, not everyone on the Essex County Republican Committee was presented with a copy of the advertisement prior to printing. He pointed to the bylaws for the committee, which note that ads purchased for more than $500 need only be approved by two committee officers; in this case, himself and committee treasurer Joyce Morency. “We always support the endorsed candidates through the primary,” said Jackson. The bylaws also stipulate that any such ads must end with the disclaimer “Paid for by the Essex County Republican Committee.” But Republicans who support Garcia feel the advertisement misrepresents them.

Keene Boys Soccer

Beavers return nine players to roster KEENE VALLEY — The Keene Valley boys soccer team is hoping to make this season a winning one behind the leadership of several upperclassmen. The Beavers return nine players from last year ’s 7-9-1 team. Among them are seniors Cody Whitney, Luke Andrews and Tiger Smith; Juniors Sam Earl, James Bell, Dylan Boyle, and Jamie Kaltenbach; sophomore Austin Holbrook; and freshman Jeffrey Bruha. Sam Balzac, Jack VanWie, Brett Guerin, Mike Harris, Luke Peduzzi, and Wyatt Bright join the team this year and will each see plenty of time on the field. “We hope to improve to at least .500 this year and play in sectionals,” said head coach Charlie Platt. “Our team has potential to reach our goals.”

Keene Girls Soccer

Keene girls are young but tough KEENE VALLEY — With eight returning starters, the Keene girls soccer team is ready to compete with anyone in the MVAC. All-Star senior Emma Nye returns to lead an experienced offensive front along with fellow senior Brianna Murphy and sophomore Amanda Boyle. Seniors Louisa and Michelle Sardella will be relied upon heavily as defenders along with juniors Kayla Hebert and Brittany Guerin. Freshmen Hannah McCabe and Sadie Holbrook will provide added depth in the backfield. The midfield is anchored by returning starters Jessica Caner and Emma Gothner, who will be joined by Taylor McCabe, Anna Kowanko, and Christianna Fabiano. Freshman Megan Hall returns as goalkeeper. “It is possible we will start seven ninth and tenth graders. Young and growing pains will be there,” said head coach Fred Hooper, “but we will look to battle with all teams in the conference.”

Elizabethtown-Lewis Boys Soccer

Lions build on experience ELIZABETHTOWN — The Elizabethtown-Lewis boys soccer team is hoping their maturity on the field will help improve on last year ’s 10-8 overall record. “We are experienced and are looking forward to working as a team,” said head coach Paul Beuhler. “Senior players are expected to lead and anchor the defense and offense.” Returning starters include seniors Tanner Cassavaugh, Michael Gowdy, Andrew Kerr, Evan Drew, Ben Goff, and Zach Allott, as well as juniors Cortland Mowery and Zach Denton. Devin Drummond takes over as goalkeeper this year, while sophomores Timmy LaRock and Hunter Mowery will fill out the starting lineup. Senior Brandon Quain, junior Alex Andrade, sophomores Jeremy Rushby and Nate Allott, and freshman Brody Hooper will all provide needed depth.

Elizabethtown-Lewis Girls Soccer

E’town girls look to rebuild ELIZABETHTOWN — With only six players returning from last year, the Elizabethtown-Lewis girls soccer team is hoping to give their new players some good experience. “We’re very young with mostly ninth graders and eighth graders,” said head coach Steve Denton. “It’s definitely a rebuilding year.” Chelsea Provost returns as the lone senior. Juniors Jessica McGinn and Nicole Podmore, sophomore Claire Harwood, and freshmen Emilee Morris and Kylie Cassavaugh will also be relied upon for their experience. Joining the team this year are sophomores Andrew Levien, Kristy Napper and Caitlin Coats; freshmen Sierra Wimett, Kirsten Ashline, Kaylee Cross, Rebecca Pellerin and Jennifer McGinn; and eighth graders Catie Decker and Lilly Whalen. “We look forward to a good season, and we hope to learn a lot this year,” Denton said.

AVCS Boys Soccer

Patriots seek repeat CLINTONVILLE — The AuSable Valley boys soccer team finished 12-0-1 in the CVAC last year, and though they lost several All-Star players to graduation, they aren’t losing pace in 2009. “Last year was a special year for us, and one that we aspire to repeat,” said head coach Bob Hamilton. “With many returning players and our defensive core returning, we anticipate another successful season.” Returning in the backfield this year are senior defenders Austin Davis, Curtis Loreman, and James Ford, as well as sophomore Jordan Holdridge. Midfielders include senior Devin Frazier, junior Ryan Lee, and sophomores Conner Manning and Tyler White. Junior T.J. Burl joins the team this year and will start in the net while his classmates Bucky Worrell and Sean Pulsifer round out the lineup as forwards. Other players on the roster include senior Joe Boyce; juniors Patrick Sargent, Jeremy Wood, Mitch Miller, Zachary Snow, and Lawrence Montenaro; sophomore Robert Lee and Nathan Casey, a freshman. “Our goals this year include repeating as Division II Champions and to make a successful run in the Class B Sectional playoffs,” Hamilton added.

AVCS Girls Soccer

Continuing the charge CLINTONVILLE — With six returning starters from last year ’s 13-6-1 squad, the AuSable Valley girls soccer team hopes to continue their winning ways. “We will be strong defensively with Michelle Taylor leading the way at sweeper,” said head coach Keith Raines. “Captain Alexis Coolidge has proven to be one of the best defenders in the CVAC and will be counted on to shut down opposing teams’ best forward.” Captains Amanda Hamilton and Sidney Flint will lead the way in the midfield along with Becca Reynolds and Savannah Douglas. Junior Jena Finnegan takes over as goalkeeper this year. Perhaps Ausable Valley's biggest strength will be on offense, however. Samantha Ashline, Cammey Keyser, Johanna Recny, and Megan Colby, the four of whom combined for 27 goals and 16 assists last season, will return as forwards. Rounding out the roster are Shilou Bourgeois, Lorri LaBarge, Kira Wood, Kayla Taylor, Alexis Hamilton, Bryce Allen, Liz Rennie, Kyla Kennedy, and Kelly McBrearity. “I think we have the talent, and experience, to challenge anyone in the CVAC,” said Raines.

AVCS Football

AVCS football determined to win CLINTONVILLE — With a deep roster, the AuSable Valley football team is anticipating a better season than last year ’s 1-7 showing. Senior quarterback Jordan Bezio returns to lead an experienced offense featuring wide receivers Josh Ashline, Dillion Traynor, Brennen Smith, James Montefusco, Taylor Hall, and Joe Lincoln; running backs Ben Prentiss, Lance Sawyer, Jorden Bouyea, and Alex LaFountain; and tight ends James Braid and John Sikander. Anchoring the offensive and defensive lines will be Austin Case, James Crowningshield, Kyle Doner, John Dukett, Justin Hart, Brennan Parrish, Bryce Passino, Jake Pray, Alex Santamaria, Patrick Santamaria, Kasey Santo, David Thompson, and Brandon Woodring. Look for Ethan Hipko, Matt Lamere, Tanner Crowningshield, Austin Case, Joe Prentiss, Hank Whisher, Brad Belanger, and Adam Luxon to make key tackles from the defensive backfield.

AVCS Swimming

Patriot swimmers coming back strong CLINTONVILLE — The AuSable Valley girls swim team finished with two wins and four losses last year, but will look to rely on their experience with 14 swimmers returning. Among those returning is sophomore Sierra Cotrona, who last year broke the school record in the breaststroke and went on to compete in the state competition. Also back this year are seniors Alex Hoey, Heather Braid, and Kariana Garrand; juniors Alex Casey, Brittany Friedrich, and Emily Miller; and a host of sophomores including Raychel Agoney, Leann Cook, Teesha Coolidge, Christine Darrah, Kaylee Davis, Alexis Facteau, Emma Helfgott, and Bianca Lawrence. New to the team are sophomore Karia Booth and freshmen Chelsea Clark, Annie Helfgott, Sidney Murphey, Beatrice O’Toole, and Melanie Wood. “A strong core of swimmers, along with a team with much depth will allow us the ability to maximize events,” said head coach Doug Garrand.

Willsboro Boys Soccer

Warriors ready to roll WILLSBORO — The Willsboro boys soccer team finished 63-1 in the MVAC last year, but anticipate an even better season this year with many returning starters. Clay Sherman, Patrick Wells and Alex Hamel, who combined for 46 goals and 18 assists last season, return along with All-Star forward Lucas Strong to lead the attack on offense. Senior Jordan Blanchard will provide additional depth. The team also returns an experinced defensive core in senior Tyler Pierce, junior Alex Shepherd, and sophomores Nick Ball. Dakota Sayward, Clayton Cross, and John Pollock return to anchor the midfield. Justin Drinkwine, also an All-Star last year, will start in the net. New to the team this year are Brandon Bertrand, Jeffrey Bigelow, Elliot Pierce, Cody Sayward, and Maksat Atayev. “Division I is very tough this season with strong teams like Chazy and Elizabethtown,” said head coach Andrew Lee, “but I feel that if our off-the-field chemistry is the same as our onthe-field chemistry, we should have a good season.”

Willsboro Girls Soccer

Willsboro girls on the right track WILLSBORO — The Willsboro girls soccer team may have lost eight players to graduation, but they have plenty of talent moving up to take the reigns. The Warriors return several players from last year ’s 6-3-1 squad, including seniors Marion James, Jade Sayward, Krystal Porter, Stevie Burrows, and Megan Jaquish; juniors Morgan Jaquish, Erika Oliver, and Courtney Blanchard; and sophomores Hannah Bruno and Serene Holland. “Our team is quite experienced,” said head coach Laura Bridge. “They are a cohesive unit.” New to the team this year are sophomores Emily Sayward and Renee Provost, as well as freshmen Renee Marcotte and Kyli Swires. “We should be very competitive this year,” Bridge added.

Westport Boys Soccer

Westport boys have veterans and youth WESTPORT — With a sturdy core of returning players and some talented newcomers, the Westport boys soccer team hopes to build on last year ’s 6-4 conference record. All-Star senior Nathan Gay, who led the team in scoring the past two seasons, and classmate Alan Ware return to lead a strong offensive front. They will be joined by Jonathan Magoon and freshman standout Jack Newberry. The Eagles should be solid on defense with seniors Jesse Stevens and Michael Bodnar and juniors David Quaglietta and Kevin Russell all returning from last year. Chris Golembeck and Ethan Markwica will add depth. Senior Nik Reynolds takes over in the goal this year. Juniors Liam Davis and Bo McKinley return to anchor the midfield and will be joined by newcomers Alex Steele, Cooper Sayward, and Devin Martin. “Our goal is to continue to develop our skill sets, enhance our play, and have some fun,” said head coach Michael Davis.

Westport Girls Soccer

Eagles look to grow WESTPORT — The Westport girls soccer team is hoping some new talent can combine with upperclassmen to make this season a successful one. “We are a very young and inexperienced team,” said head coach Brad Rascoe. “Hopefully the girls will improve through the season and be competitive in each game that they play.” Returning starters Valentina Rodriguez, Martha McKinley and Christina Sherman will be relied on as leaders, both on the offensive end and the defensive end. Seniors Kelsey Carroll, Morgan Robare, and Anna Finucane also bring much needed experience. Molly Rascoe returns as the starting goalkeeper. Filling out the roster are juniors Nancy Armitage, Aisleigh Frum, Elizabeth Peasley, Cassidy Carroll, and Michelle Quaglietta; sophomores Allison Sherman, Dorie Souris, Willa McKinley, Mallory Sudduth, Karlee McGee, Alexa Mitchell, Emily French, Kasaydia Carter-Martinez and Delaney Sears; and eighth grader Brendee Russell. “Our goals are to improve our fundamentals and play as a team, working hard together,” said Rascoe.

pings in nine out of the 12 waters I visited. Obviously, others are seeing moose as well, a point illustrated by the nearly two dozen state road signs posted across the park. In places such as Newcomb, Indian Lake, Bloomingdale or Inlet, the sight of a moose is no longer considered an unusual occurrence.

Moose still on the loose! M

oose, the largest animal species in the park were extirpated for over a century, yet they have always been considered an iconic, ‘landscape species.’ Since the 1970’s, moose have been entering New York state on a continuous basis. The New York's moose population is now firmly established and large enough to be considered secure. Moose have become so common that the NYSDEC no longer solicits nor collects reported sightings. Officials explain that the continued collection of this data will no longer contribute in a substantial or cost-effective way. “People don’t even bother to call them in anymore,” explained Ken Kogut a wildlife biologist with DEC Region 6. “I guess the novelty has worn off.” Currently, DEC biologists estimate that there are more than 500 moose in the park and that the population is increasing at about the same rate as Vermont's, about 1015 percent per year. “We believe that moose have become reestablished to a point where a threshold has been reached to enable a breeding population to exist,” explained Ed Reid, a DEC Wildlife Biologist with Region 5.

The Seasons Since the 1990’s, park residents have become increasingly aware of the presence of moose in the park. They’ve found moose scat and tracks, or watched them in the water or along the highways.

Despite an increase in the number of sightings during the fall, moose are still in the process of restablishing a population on the Adirondacks. Photo by Eric Granger

Moose scat, which resembles an oversized gum drop in shape, can be found in ponds and lakes stretching from the West Canada Lakes to the St. Regis Area to the Five Ponds Wilderness. The droppings can usually be found along the pond’s bottom in four to six feet of water where moose commonly feast on water plants such as lillypads, arrowheads, cattails or similar tubers. The droppings are easily recognizable due to their size, quantity and light, tan color which stands out against a pond’s mucky bottom. Last year, over the final weekend of the trout season, I discovered moose drop-

The Animal Moose are primarily active during the morning and evening hours, but they often switch to a nocturnal life during the summer, when insect harassment is at its peak. Sightings increase as the rut begins in the late summer and continues through the early fall. During the rutting season, a bull moose covers upwards of 70 miles in a day searching for a mate. Moose travel at about 9 mph, but they can double that speed in a gallop for a short distance. They are also extremely proficient swimmers and have been known to cross Lake Champlain. The rut begins in August as bulls begin shedding antler velvet. The bellow to produce sounds similar to groans. Similar to whitetail deer rubs, moose also break branches, strip bark, or tangle with bushes. The bell, a hairy skin flap under the jaw, is their scent distribution organ. It is splashed with urine when bulls dig rutting pits. It serves to attract females, which are greatly attracted to bull moose scent. From August to mid October, during rut, females come to heat every 18–21 days. Moose reach sexual maturity at one and a half years, bulls mate from an age of two and a half years. After one to two days together, a mating pair parts and the bull begins searching for another female.

Observe with a wary eye Moose are unique and exciting animals to observe. They can frequently be found in wetland areas with streams or lakes with nearby poplar, maple or coniferous forests. While moose have been observed throughout the day, the peak hours of dawn

or dusk are usually best for viewing wildlife. While moose are fairly tolerant of humans, all wildlife should be viewed and photographed from a safe distance. People should exercise caution when around these large and powerful animals. Efforts must be ensured that observation is done carefully. Make no mistake, moose are dangerous animals. Weighing up to 1,500 pounds, standing 6-1/2 feet at the shoulder, with long legs, sharp hooves and impressive antlers; moose will attack a human. The most dangerous time of the year to meet up with a cow moose is in the spring and early summer when they may have young calves. Use common sense and never walk between a moose and its calf. When traveling in moose country, dogs should be left home. Moose have an instinctive fear of canines and even a leashed dog may agitate a moose and provoke a charge or an attack. Males act aggressively, especially during the fall breeding season when they may perceive you as a threat or potential competitor. Bull moose have been known to tangle with a train locomotive, so a human being presents very little danger. Signs of moose aggression include the animal walking toward you, laying back its ears, stomping the ground, licking its nose, swinging its head from side to side while the hair on the back of its neck is standing on end. If a moose is acting aggressive, abnormally or seems disturbed by your presence, back away slowly and leave the area. If charged, run and try to get a tree, vehicle or other large object between you and the moose. Should you encounter a moose be sure to back off a bit and give it plenty of room. Always back away slowly and calmly. Remember, dangerous wildlife encounters are nearly always caused by a foolish decision on the part of humans. Use your head, rather than your feet, to avoid a confrontation.

In the Military Upton completes Marine basic training PARRIS ISLAND, S.C. — Marine Corps Pvt. Eric S. Upton, son of Julie and Leroy Upton of Mooers, recently completed 12 weeks of basic training at Marine Corps Recruit Depot, designed to challenge new Marine recruits both physically and mentally. Upton and fellow recruits began their training at 5 a. m., by running three miles and performing calisthenics. In addition to the physical conditioning program, Upton spent numerous hours in classroom and field assignments which included learning first aid, uniform regulations, combat water survival, marksmanship, hand-to-hand combat and assorted weapons training. They performed close order drill and operated as a small infantry unit during field training. Upton and other recruits also received instruction on the Marine Corp’ core values — honor, courage and commitment, and what the core values mean in guiding personal and professional conduct. Upton and fellow recruits ended the training phase with The Crucible, a 54-hour, team evolution culminating in an emotional ceremony in which recruits are presented the Marine Corps Emblem, and addressed as “Marines” for the first time in their careers.
