E’town addresses concerns with sewage plan

Treasuring the town heritage By Matt Bosley matt@denpubs.com

By Matt Bosley matt@denpubs.com ELIZABETHTOWN — Town officials in support of a new wastewater treatment system in Elizabethtown held an informational meeting Oct. 13 to address some of the public’s top concerns. The project, which is expected to total more than $9.5 million, involves a gravity-based sewer system that would service the most dense areas of the hamlet and feed into a wastewater treatment plant along the Boquet River on Woodruff Lane. Many residents, including several members of the town’s planning board, have opposed the project, wary of a noisy, malodorous, or ugly sewage plant that could ruin property values or interfere with their well-being. Engineers involved in the sewer system’s design, together with supervisor Noel Merrihew, worked to assure the 20 residents present at the meeting that the infrastructure would be designed with those concerns in mind. Rick Straut, an engineer from Barton and Loguidice, said the state Department of Environmental Conservation has urged the town for several years to install a municipal sewer system because of repeated septic system failures and issues with waste disposal at Elizabethtown Community Hospital. “Also, this is a smart growth concept to spur economic growth within the hamlet,” he stated. Jack Dodson of Dodson and Associates, another engineering firm involved in the project, said the treatment plant will be housed in an enclosed building that will be soundproofed and equipped with odor-controlling ventilation to prevent it from being a nuisance to neighboring properties. “Architecturally, we can make this look and blend in as folks feel comfortable,” Dodson said, noting they intend to work with Historic Preservation department officials to make the building fit in with the other historic buildings nearby. The plant will employ two sequencing batch reactor tanks, which reduce bacteria and odor from developing in the wastewater as it’s treated. “The sludge that is produced there will be trucked off-site to another treatment facility in either Ticonderoga or Plattsburgh,” Straut explained. Overall, Straut said project designers were taking extra steps to ensure the treatment plant would have a negative impact. “We don’t expect it to have any kind of negative effect on property value,” he said.

Nancy Decker looks on as Heritage House ambassadors Linda Rockefeller and Carolyn Ware help screw down the lid of the Westport time capsule. The capsule will be vacuum sealed until it is re-opened in 50 years.

WESTPORT — Residents in Westport recently paid tribute to those helping promote the town’s identity, and took some time to tuck away a slice of history. A ceremony at the Westport Heritage House Oct. 10 celebrated the success of Westport’s participation in the Lake Champlain Quadricentennial. Volunteers who were instrumental in the building’s inaugural season as a visitors’ center were honored alongside the dedication of the town’s time capsule. More than 50 volunteers were trained this summer as ambassadors to staff the new visitors’ center at the Westport Heritage House. Formerly a vacant church, the building was refurbished through a grant from Lakes to Locks Passage. The large pool of volunteers devoted shifts throughout the summer in order to keep the building open seven days a week, allowing visitors to get information about the town and enjoy historical and artistic exhibits. In addition to honoring their commitment, the ceremony also marked the sealing of the town’s time capsule, a project done in honor of the Lake Champlain Quadricentennial celebration. Together with the town board and the Westport Chamber of Commerce, the town’s Quadricentennial committee implemented a $22,500 Quadricentennial grant to bring additional activities to the town’s annual Heritage Festival. Nancy Decker, a Chamber of Commerce board member, was in charge of organizing the festival, and said the Quadricentennial celebration made it particularly successful. “This year ’s Heritage Fest everyone agreed was the largest turnout by far,” she said. “This one was just far

Denton Publications adds 15 newspapers Combined circulation stands at 250,000 By John Gereau johng@denpubs.com Eagle Newspapers, based in Syracuse, and Spotlight Newspapers, based in Delmar, have been purchased by Community Media Group LLC — a new company formed by Denton Publications owner Daniel E. Alexander. The new partnership draws 15 free and paid community newspapers under the Denton umbrella, bringing the local company’s total number of publications to 25 with a combined circulation of 250,000, as well as a number of niche publications and Web sites. The total number of employees will increase from 75 to 140. While the purchase will open numerous

advertising opportunities and create a network for sharing resources and improving content, Alexander stressed the papers will all retain their commitment to community journalism. “We plan to remain local, we believe in the community newspaper concept,” Alexander said. “At the same time, we recognize people do travel, and both advertisers and readers will no doubt have an interest in the areas covered by these papers.” For example, Alexander said a local event like Race the Train which took place in North Creek in September can now receive publicity in a much greater portion of New York and Vermont, through the new partnership. “Our network is far reaching,” Alexander said. “I’ve been told that our publicity of these events definitely draws participants,

which in turn brings money to our communities. This new relationship can only help with that.” The same opportunities exist for advertisers, Alexander said. Advertisers will soon have the ability to reach 250,000 homes throughout Vermont, northern and central New York, as well as the Capital District with just one buy — or they can target a single region. “The benefit over the metro dailies is we can zone for a specific region, or offer the entire area,” he said. “We see this as an opportunity for choice.” Both Eagle Newspapers and Spotlight Newspapers are strong organizations which have for years produced upscale community newspapers with numerous awards to their credit.

State Sen. Elizabeth Little was in Elizabethtown Oct. 7 to receive a big “thank you” from Families First of Essex County. From April through September, 31 families with 57 kids have received 1,211 hours of respite care funded by $24,300 in state grant money secured by Little, and dozens of additional respite providers in the area have received training. (L to R): Tara Stockwell, respite provider from Port Henry; Little; JoAnne Caswell, Executive Director of Families First; and Christina Nauman, parent from Ticonderoga.

KEENE — The Town of Wilmington, in cooperation with the High Peaks communities is developing a regional strategy for community revitalization, sustainable economic development, enhanced public access and promotion of the High Peaks waterfronts as an important resource for recreation and tourism.

Debate planned for sheriff candidates ELIZABETHTOWN — Candidates for the position of Essex County Sheriff will have a chance to express their views at an upcoming public debate. Denton Publications, in concert with other local media organizations, is sponsoring a debate at Elizabethtown Central School Oct. 22 from 7-8 p.m. Candidates will field questions solicited from members of the public. A panel of local news professionals will present the questions and act as moderators. The three-way race for Sheriff includes the incumbent, Henry Hommes, Westport town councilman Michael “Ike” Tyler, and Robert Kirby, a former Wilmington Town Justice. Hommes defeated Tyler in a Sept. 15 primary to earn the Republican designation, but Tyler will remain on the ballot as an independent candidate. Kirby is also running as an independent.

Both Kirby and Tyler have committed to participating in the debate. Hommes has declined, citing an already busy campaign schedule. “I must respectfully decline your invitation to the debate on October 22nd due to my obligations to my duties as sheriff and campaign events already planned,” said Hommes. “Additionally, I have already accepted an invitation to a League of Woman Voters-sponsored debate on October 20th in Westport.” The Oct. 20 event is a “Meet The Candidates night” that will be taking place at the Westport Town Hall starting at 6:30 p.m. It will feature candidates for Essex County District Attorney, Sheriff, and Westport town supervisor races. Candidates will answer questions submitted from audience members prior to a question and answer period. For more information on this event, contact Janice Hainer at 962-8350. Do you have question for the candidates? Submit your questions via e-mail to matt@denpubs.com.

Sheriff’s department getting state, federal boost ELIZABETHTOWN — The Essex County Sheriff ’s department is getting some significant assistance from the state and federal government. At the Essex County Public Safety committee meeting Oct. 13, Sheriff Henry Hommes asked for the approval of several grants recently awarded to his department. The first grant would provide the department with $24,000 over the next two years toward the purchase of new bulletproof vests. “This is a state grant, and it pays half of the purchase price of the vests,” said Hommes, noting Essex County gets one of the highest allotments in the state for the grant. Further state funding has also been awarded, he said, through the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program. Essex County received

$1,703 for housing in its jail foreign nationals who were awaiting sentencing this year. $188,080 in federal stimulus money has been awarded to the Sheriff ’s department through a Rural Drug Enforcement Assistance grant. Hommes said the money will fund an additional deputy for the department, along with a new vehicle and equipment. The RDEA grant stipulates that the money be used primarily for drug enforcement, but Hommes said the additional deputy would perform other duties as well. Hommes also gave an update on revenue the county has gained from its contract with the U.S. Marshall service to house federal inmates awaiting trial or sentencing. “As of Sept. 30, we have received $1,017,070 for boarding [federal] inmates in our jail for the year,” stated Hommes. “I think that’s a pretty good figure.” Chesterfield Supervisor

Gerald Morrow agreed, saying the money should offset the $1.5 million bond the county was issued to help fund construction of the new jail. Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafava argued that it costs the county $3.7 million a year in operating costs for the jail because all of the extra inmates. Essex Supervisor Ron Jackson said those costs are fixed because of state mandates. “The only way I could see that number dropping is if we went below 30 inmates,” said Hommes, noting the county has also saved money with the new jail by no longer boarding its own inmates in other jails. According to Hommes, the county receives $98 for each federal inmate per day and spends about $8 per day to provide food and linens for each one. Of the 66 inmates currently in the jail, 35 are federal boarders.

irefighter 1 continued on Tuesday and Wednesday in Keeseville with the final two Hazardous Materials (Hazmat) classes, and they were no less fascinating than the previous two, which I wrote about in last week's column. I said then that one reason I was paying such close attention (and one reason I'm sharing it with you in a little detail) was that many of these dangerous goods travel through Westport either by rail or on the Northway. Earlier, we learned how to identify potential hazards, how to use the Emergency Response Guidebook to respond to spills, and all about the various kinds of personal protective equipment (PPE) available to responders. This time we covered various ways of dealing with hazardous spills in more detail. From the public's standpoint, the two basic strategies for surviving something like, say, a deadly cloud of chlorine gas from a ruptured tanker are either evacuation or sheltering in place. In other words, head for the hills or hunker down and let it blow over. Literally—you want to get uphill and upwind if possible, and when sheltering in place you want to close windows and put towels under doors until the danger is past. Evacuation is for when there's enough notice to get everyone out safely. Sheltering is for when there's no other option. As it says in the textbook, the decision to shelter in place usually has "political ramifica-

tions" even when it's absolutely necessary. No wonder. Still, in most cases it's safer than evacuation, which is a lot harder than it sounds (imagine actually trying to get everyone out of town quickly). Watch out for Walmart trucks in particular. The threshold for placarding a lot of these materials is 1,001 pounds. Walmart makes a practice of shipping pallets of exactly 1,000 pounds in order to avoid having to put the scary placards on their trucks. It might clash with the smiley face. Many times, the chemicals are shipped alongside other chemicals that react and become even nastier if they mix. If you come up on a smoldering Walmart truck, close your windows and vents and drive on. Please forgive my juxtaposition. The Westport Library Association is beginning a series of music programs on selected Thursdays at 7 p.m. The first will be held at the Westport Library on Oct. 22, when the highly acclaimed jazz trio "Spring on Jupiter" will offer a selection of jazz standards and Latin tunes. And on Saturday, Oct. 31, the Champlain Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution will sponsor a free lineage research workshop at 1:30 p. m. at the Westport Town Hall. The presenter will be Joan Sondergaard, State Chairman of Lineage Research. All members of the public are invited to attend. Next week: better transitions.

illsboro might be considered small in size, but we certainly do offer some great things for people to enjoy. This past week it was a great lecture program featuring Sid Couchey and Peter Paine, they shared where life has taken them and the road to getting to this point. Very interesting and really helps us to know our neighbors better. Watch for the next part of this series and come join the group, there is no charge and it is held in the auditorium at the local school. Another wonderful event was the last movie shown by the Champlain Valley Film Society, it was “Islander” a movie made in Maine, and, as an added feature, the film was introduced by Thomas Hildreth. Thomas was one of the screen writers, producer and was the leading male actor. After the showing he answered questions from the audience about the making of this film, it was a delightful evening of entertainment right here in Willsboro. The film society will soon feature the Buster Keaton silent movie “The General.” This will be shown at the Willsboro School on Saturday, Oct. 17 at 8 p.m. As an added part to the program, Ben Model will introduce the move and play the piano through out the performance. I don’t think many of us have ever seen a silent movie on a big screen. It was great to be a part of the R.S.V.P. Volunteer luncheon this past week down in Port Henry. The room was filled with volunteers that had donated hundreds of hours to project within their communities. Willsboro has a good many R.S.V.P. volunteers.

The Gillillands hosted a fund Raising gathering for Kristy Sprague this past weekend at their home on Mountain View Drive. They reported around 45 to 50 guest attended and got a chance to visit with Kristy. We do welcome her and her family to Willsboro, they are living here now and their two children attend our school. The Willsboro Heritage Museum will be closing up the season of Sid Couchey’s “Champy’ Exhibit on Columbus Day. They are having an ending celebration and all the paintings will be returned to their owners. The 2010 Heritage Calendars are now ready for sale, and will soon be in the local stores; or call Janice Allen to get your copy at $8 each. The Willsboro Methodist Church has had a busy fall schedule, Thurs. Oct. 8 they hosted the Adirondack Area Churches for a meeting with their District Superintendent. It included a pot luck supper and then a program of ways to move ministry out into the community. Then, on Oct. 17, they will host the Adirondack District United Methodist Women for their Fall Meeting. This will included an all day meeting, program and a lunch. The After School Program for the children also started this past week. An Advent study program is planned to start on Sunday Nov. 15, from 2 to 3 p.m at the Willsboro Church, this is a five week program and open to any interested persons. Registration of interest would be appreciative as study books need to be ordered soon. Happy Birthday: Joseph Ferris 10/21, Kaitlyn Arthur 10/23, Dot Jacques 10/23, Gert Grady 10/24.

his week the NCSPCA has a lot of news! We have scheduled a Fall Fashion Show at the Mineville VFW, Raymond Wright Way on Sunday, Nov. 22 at 2 p.m. The latest wedding and prom fashions will be on display, and a luncheon will follow the show. There will be a cash bar and prize drawings throughout the afternoon. $25 will cover your admission and luncheon expenses. A separate drawing will be held for a painting by well known artist Ruth Rumney. We would like to thank Fashions by Fashion Corner Bridal & Sagans, Wedding World Cakes, and Decker's Flats Floral Designs for contributing to this extravaganza. Proceeds will benefit the NCSPCA and the shelter expenses. Our featured pet this week is Fawn, a lovely grey Tabby with perfect markings. She's an active young lady who likes to play and get plenty of exercise. She knows that she deserves to be the queen of the house and likes to be treated as such - especially if it involves lots of attention and petting. She exudes confidence and she is quick to reward your attention with thundering purrs. Fawn is young enough to

Please look for the NCSPCA in the SEFA charities listing booklet you receive at work.

rove past the old Walker farm the other day and was it a bucolic and pleasant sight: warm fields, changing leafs, grazing Herefords, the green, the gold, and the smell of new mown hay. Also, try driving up Whallons Bay Road some night during a new moon. Went to the closing of the Sid Couchey show at the Willsboro Museum being hosted by the Gillillands. It was a grand time with Sid and Ruth chatting away and the recreation of the 70’s-iconic menu of cheese fondue and fine wines, but, no plebian beer. Patty Paine was warning everyone to watch what they were saying around me. I was shocked; poor old me, being a fabricator. She was right, of course. Item six from the imbecile Republican Fundraising letter asks, “Do you want the government to protect our marriage laws in the United States?” Hey, someone told me that the Demos are also sending out a fund raising letter that might be a rival to the Republicans. Someone send me a copy will you? There is no need to ignore stu-

pidity whichever party is so schtoopinninski. There is something to be said for such efforts which are raising the social status of car, real estate salesmen and lawyers (not you Matt Looey, Charley, and David). Can’t think of what it is! Speaking of stupid stuff, some folk are trying to spread a story that our Town Supervisor and the Town Board delayed getting funding for the Essex sewer system for their own gain. What could that gain have been when no money was ever available, grant funds can only be acquired when work is begun, and no grant money was ever sent? This is certainly an example of someone not having the foggiest idea of how government beauracy works, which is ignore, ignore, ignore, forget, forget, forget, and then slow, slow, slow, and slower. “Concerned citizens” have arisen and it’s not even the equinox or midnight. Next week, look for a special on favorite recipes of famous Hollywood stars for toast, cooking frozen waffles, and “hot dogs ala microwave.”

Simple acts of kindness: Rebecca receives her answer

T

he snowball I have rolling with my columns about simple acts of kindness people show to one another continues to gain momentum. I continue to receive touching stories by mail, e-mail and on our Web site at www.denpubs.com. All have been heartwarming and inspirational, but one stood out above the rest this week. That’s because it was a letter from the woman who was the inspiration for my first column. In that column I spoke about how Rebecca Ives of Crown Point had submitted a letter to the editor about how she had been approached by a woman on a sweltering hot day this summer as she sat outside the post office in a van with her three children. The woman pressed a $50 bill into her hand and said, “Here is a little something for you to take your kids somewhere nice and cool today. I think God wanted me to bless you today.” Rebecca wanted the unidentified woman to know she and her three children did in fact take her up on the offer, and had a wonderful afternoon thanks to her act of kindness. Rebecca also wondered if the woman could afford the generous gesture. Well, Rebecca, here is your answer: Dear Rebecca, I am the woman who helped you that hot day at the post office, your letter to the editor moved me to tears and I want to respond to your question, “I wondered if she really could’ve afforded it.” I get $455 a month in Social Security, my husband $1,094.

Question: Do you think the APA’s regulations regarding cell towers in the Adirondacks is too restrictive? Yes:

We will celebrate our 50th anniversary in March and in all those 49 plus years the Lord has blessed us and never failed to provide for all our needs. Last December, my sister gave me $50 to “do something special,” and it has sat in my wallet until the day I saw your car with the children in it at the post office. Many times I almost bought something with it, but I wanted it to be something really special, something that I would remember and would bring me pleasure. Nothing ever did, until that day. God spoke to my heart when I saw the children in your car on that very hot day. I knew you had your hands full, and the thought of being able to help you take them somewhere cool where they could have fun was overwhelming. I couldn’t wait to give it to you. The joy your letter brought me is by far the best “purchase” I could have made, so to answer your question, “could I afford it?” The answer is ... I couldn’t afford not to! May God bless you.

ESSEX COUNTY, IT’S TIME! “Out of sight, out of mind” is why many folks think everything’s OK at our Sheriff’s Office. But the truth is that it’s not, and what we don’t know is hurting us. For example, rather than concentrate on protecting us, Sheriff Hommes has instead focused his efforts on boarding federal prisoners. Among other problems with this, the contract he negotiated doesn’t properly reflect the costs involved and commits us to absorb future increases besides. This is of no benefit to taxpayers and is costing us more than if the new jail had been built to serve our actual need. Meanwhile, we’re still doing without many vital services we should be getting and are already paying for. I’m Robert Kirby. Active in public service my entire adult life, I have the experience and ability to make our Sheriff’s Office better serve our community, and a plan to get it done. Plus, I’ll work transparently, so everyone can finally see what’s really going on. Get all the details at kirbyforsheriff.com. See why it is time for a new sheriff! By the way, a debate is in the works. Thanks to everyone who helped make it happen.

Americans are getting shorter R

ecently, Social Science Quarterly featured an article that revealed that Americans are getting shorter when compared to the rest of the world. The importance of this finding was spelled out by “anthropometric historians” in the article. They have concluded that height is a biological shorthand of sorts that provides a powerful indicator of a society’s wellbeing. Height variations within a population are largely genetic, but height variations between populations or countries are mostly environmental. If Dan is taller than Mike it is attributable to taller parents. However, if Norwegians are taller than Americans it is because they are living in healthier conditions. In a country’s height lies the proof of its health care, daily diet and social class arrangement. As the economic standing in North Korea has declined so has the height of its citizens. Though North and South Korea are separated only by a narrow demilitarized zone, the living conditions are markedly different. North Korea is plagued by food shortages, poor health care and a failing economy while South Korea enjoys more plentiful food, better health care and a growing economy. An Economics and Biology report revealed that the average South Korean was a full three inches taller than the average North Korean. These height differences have occurred in a relatively short period of time punctuating the impact of environmental conditions within a country. In the 1800’s, Americans were the tallest people on the planet. By 2000, the average American man was 5 feet 10.5 inches tall and ranked 9th in the world while the average American woman was 5 feet 5 inches tall and ranked 15th in the world. Dutch men are ranked first at 6 feet 1 inch on

average and Dutch women are ranked number one at an average height of 5 feet 7 inches. During World War One, the average American soldier was two inches taller than the average German soldier. Then somewhere in the By Scot Hurlburt mid 1950’s, Germans and other Europeans started to grow, many Asians grew even more, while the average American did not. In fact, the height of an average American has not increased in over 50 years. If the fact that Americans are not getting any taller doesn’t concern you, factor into your considerations that there is a growing gap in life expectancy between Americans and their European and Asian counterparts. Forty one nations now outlive Americans. In just 20 years Americans life expectancy has fallen from 11th to 41st. Japan now has the longest average life expectancy. Forty countries have a lower infant mortality rate than the United States including, Cuba, Taiwan and most of Europe. I believe that the United States is still one of the greatest countries in the world. I am confident that our larger culture will take a long hard look at the many indicators that suggest that we need to adopt national health standards and practices that return us to the top of the height and health standings. Remember, all kids count.

n previous columns, I've stressed the need to hold on to all of the coupon inserts we receive each week in the newspaper. The biggest mistake that "casual" coupon users make is to cut out the coupons for the items they think they'll buy and then toss the rest of the insert into the recycle bin. As you likely know by now, this is the biggest mistake that people make with coupons. In tossing the insert you throw away coupons for items that will be free later. I know the skeptics in the crowd are thinking, "Free? Come on..." Yes! Absolutely free. Think about this. During the past few months, in my coupon inserts I've seen $1 coupons for toothpaste, $1 coupons for dish detergent and $1 coupons for frozen vegetables. If I didn't save my inserts each week, I might have thrown away those coupons - and guess what? All of those items have gone on sale for a dollar. When an item goes on sale for a dollar and I use a dollar coupon, the item is free. If your grocery stores double coupons it's even easier to get things for free, provided again that you've saved all of your coupons. During double coupon days, your 50-cent coupons are worth $1 toward those dollar sales! But one of the most important reasons to hold on to all of your coupon inserts is this: rarely do the coupons that we receive on Sunday line up with the best sales in the same week. Their real value comes as they get closer to their expiration dates. Why is this the case? Stores know which coupons are coming out in the newspaper each week, long before we actually get them. This is not secret information. In fact, many coupon Web sites print preview lists of the coupons that are coming soon. Armed with this knowledge, stores typically leave the items that will be featured in the coupons at a higher price, because they know the habits of most people that use coupons. Casual coupon users flip through the paper and cut the coupons for the things they plan to buy that week. And many people think, "I'd better use this coupon this week before I forget." Does this sound like you? Then, you may be saving a little money, but

you're not using your coupons in the most effective way. Here's a great example. My grocery store recently had a full-page ad in the coupon inserts. The ad contained a $3 coupon for dog food. At the top of the page, the ad proudly proclaimed that the dog food was on sale for $8.99 at my store By Jill Cataldo this week. It said "Use this $3 coupon, and you'll pay just $5.99 a bag." Now, I know from experience that $8.99 is not a very good sale price for that dog food at all. While it may be "on sale," it's not the rock-bottom, lowest price that I've seen the dog food sell for in past sales. So instead of falling for this common advertising tactic, I held onto that $3 coupon and didn't use it the week that the store wanted me to. Four weeks later, guess what? The dog food went on sale for $3.99 a bag! That's when I went in with my $3 coupon. I got my dog food for just 99 cents. If I'd purchased it the week I received the coupon, even with the coupon savings I would have paid $5.99 a bag. By waiting a few weeks, I saved $5. When you start to think about shopping this way for almost everything we buy the savings start to really add up! And that's why we save all of our coupon inserts. So build a library of your coupon inserts. Keeping them all allows us to have many coupons on hand when those good sales come around.

VALLEY NEWS - 7

Hot meal helps church stay warm By Matt Bosley matt@denpubs.com WESTPORT — Members of one local church are working to keep their place of worship a cozy one this winter by making the most of their time and talents. St. Philip Neri Catholic Church in Westport held its third annual Spaghetti Dinner Sept. 26, offering people in the community a fullservice three-course meal at an unbeatable price. The event is a fundraiser for the St. Philip Neri fuel fund, which primarily goes towards the cost of fuel oil for the small church. Lucy Connell, a Wadhams resident and long-time church member, started holding the fundraiser in 2007 when staggering increases in heating fuel costs started to weigh heavily on the parish. More than a dozen friends and fellow church members joined in to help, preparing food, waiting tables, and washing dishes. Other busi-

nesses and individuals contributed raffle items or food for the cause. “Thank God I have all these girls to help me,” said Connell, “because I couldn’t do it by myself.” Volunteers have repeated the effort every year since, drawing more than 100 people over the course of the afternoon and evening for salad, spaghetti, and homemade desserts. Father Peter Riani, the parish priest, said the annual fundraiser has been valuable for the small Westport church. “It’s been very helpful,” said Riani, “especially the year before last when we had the high costs of fuel.” In addition to the church itself, he said, fuel is also needed for the church’s rectory, as well as the parish fellowship hall, which accommodates a community food pantry. “We’re very grateful for the people who have patronized and helped make it a success,” Riani added.

“I just think that if you’re a member of a community, you should be helping in any way you can,” said Connell. “If you have an expertise, you should be using it to better the community you live in.”

SATURDAY October 17, 2009 zero-tolerance policy appears to apply only to defendants who cannot afford high-priced attorneys. She touted her knowledge and experience. Is that why she has to hire an attorney in Washington County to do all her appeals? Counting herself, there are five full-time attorneys in that office, yet she has to hire someone from out of the area to do her work! The Primary is over; her claims of conspiracy have been debunked. The rank and file members of the Republican Party made it clear their choice for District Attorney is Kristy Sprague, 53 percent to 46 percent. In desperation, Garcia turned to the Democratic Party for their support and money. However, this does nothing to improve her qualifications or erase her horrible record.

Garcia let sex offender go

Westport still needs Dan Connell To the editor, Westport is fortunate this year in having three qualified candidates for the post of supervisor, including incumbent Dan Connell. In an ordinary year, if there is ever such a thing, each one of them, in my view, could handle the job and keep Westport functioning without too much excitement. But if that were the case, it would only be because incumbent Dan Connell has prepared a very solid base from which the other candidates could operate. In his terms as supervisor, Dan Connell has directed the rehabilitation and delivery of the town water supply to meet new, stringent New York State requirements. He has truly supervised the reconstruction and repair of the waste water system from a state of legal jeopardy to its present safe and efficient level. A smaller but important project was the conversion of the disused White Church to a visitor center, which coordinates the energies of the hospitality industry of our area. Streets and sidewalks in the hamlet are clean and in best condition. While doing all this, Mr. Connell has expertly secured low-cost loans and grants that have kept Westport tax levels remarkably stable in view f the general inflationary impulse of recent years. I think it’s fair to say that Dan Connell has done a remarkable job of preparing the infrastructure of Westport for the tough times we all know are just ahead of us. I have sat in on some of the negotiations for water and sewer and have been stunned by the level of frustration and complexity involved in bringing such projects to completion. It is clear to me that dealing with the fog of federal, state, county, and Adirondack Park regulations is a fulltime job that demands the full-time attention of a full-time, experienced executive. Dan Connell has clearly demonstrated that he can do the job. The proof is there whenever we turn a faucet or flush a toilet, and there are still jobs to be done! Please take a look around Westport on Election Day and then vote for Dan Connell for supervisor. Jim Bullard, Westport

To the editor, Four years ago, my daughter made a complaint to the State Police detailing a continuous sexual assault which began when she was 10 years old while she lived in Essex County. At the time my daughter came forward, we were living in Texas, so both the New York State Police and Texas Police investigated. The investigation was turned over to the DA’s office near the end of DA Briggs’ term in late 2005. Hearing nothing, I called the DA office in September 2006 for a status report. I was unaware that Julie Garcia had replaced Mr. Briggs. I spoke with Larry Bliss, the DA investigator, who promised to look into it. The same day, he called back to say he had located the file and advised Julie Garcia of the case. During the next four months, Mr. Bliss continued the investigation and developed additional evidence of guilt. He located and obtained statements from three additional witnesses who corroborated by daughter’s story. In November, Mr. Bliss called to say the investigation was completed and that Ms. Garcia had agreed to present the case to the Grand Jury. Garcia said we would have to pay for my daughter’s travel to New York for the Grand Jury. We bought my daughter’s plane ticket, and she arrived in Essex County around December 11, 2006. Investigator Bliss met with my daughter several times, preparing her for the Grand Jury presentation. Not once did Garcia ever meet with, or even talk to my daughter, a serial rape victim. Within a few weeks, we learned that Garcia had changed her mind and refused to even present the case to the Grand Jury, without giving any explanation or reason. My daughter returned to Texas, and a pedophile and serial child rapist is walking the streets of Essex County a free man.

Garcia getting the job done To the editor, On Tuesday, November the 3rd, in the year of our Lord 2009, all the good people of Essex County, Republicans, Democrats, and independents, will have the privilege and opportunity to vote for and elect the people who will serve them for the next two or four years. I’m sure most people have put a good deal of thought into who they will be voting for. I know I have, and my choice for District Attorney is the incumbent, Julie Garcia. I say this because I am pleased with the job she has been doing over the past three and one-half years. After reading some of her opponents’ rhetoric on arrests, convictions and dismissal rates, I personally checked the New York State Division of Criminal Justice records and figures and found the true figures which show that Juile actually has a better record regarding convictions and a lower rate of dismissals than Clinton County.

Debra Owen, Keeseville

Garcia made false promises

Joseph E. Boone, Captain, NYSP, Retired, Elizabethtown

To the editor, Four years ago, Julie Garcia made all kinds of wonderful promises of what she would do if elected. I personally know of one such promise, and within days of being elected, she forgot all about it. She claimed she never made such a promise, yet everyone else present clearly recalled her conversation with me. Then, for three years, we never heard much of her until her recent unprovoked attacks on the Essex County Clerk. Under the guise of openness and honesty in government, she attacked one of the most respected and well-liked individuals in Essex County. Why? Because he dared to stand up to her; that’s why. Not once did we see her name in the news for her successful prosecution of a criminal case. She openly used the county email system to send out private political e-mails. Her DWI

High speed chase ends in arrest By Matt Bosley matt@denpubs.com JAY — Police took an alleged drunk driver into custody Oct. 7 after, they say, he attempted to flee police at speeds greater than 100 mph. Earnest B. Dockum, 39, of Jay, is being charged with reckless endangerment and a slew of other violations after leading police on a highspeed chase through three local towns. Lewis-based State Police

were conducting stationary radar checks along Route 9 in Lewis around 4 p.m. when they clocked Dockum’s 2003 Chevrolet Silverado pickup allegedly going 74 mph in a 55 mph zone. The trooper tried to pull the vehicle over, at which point, police say, Dockum refused to comply and immediately accelerated to speeds of 100 mph or more. Police followed Dockum through Chesterfield and all the way to Au Sable Forks, where they stopped the pur-

suit for safety reasons. Patrols later spotted the truck in a nearby driveway and found Dockum walking along Sheldrake Road where he was taken into custody. In addition to first degree reckless endangerment, Dockum is also charged with DWI refusal, unlawfully fleeing a police officer, and several moving violations. He was arraigned in Lewis Town Court and remanded to Essex County Jail in lieu of $10,000 bail or $20,000 bond.

entities, accounting for about 30 percent of the total cost. Others were concerned about how costs incurred by the county and school would lead to higher taxes for people outside the sewer district. Town councilman Phil Hutchins pointed out that both institutions already set aside significant funds just to maintain their current septic systems. William Finucane, whose business is located on Hand Avenue, questioned how many private septic systems had failed in the hamlet recently, and if it was enough to warrant such a costly project. Merrihew and others said new, stricter DEC regulations made it unfeasible to install or replace septic systems on several lots within the hamlet, and a sewage system was needed to attract and retain major employers in the hamlet. A referendum on the proposed sewer system is expected as early as January 2010.

From page 1 Financing for the sewer system will largely come through grants and low-interest loans from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development program and the state-run Environmental Facilities Corporation. $4.1 million in grants and a $4.3 million, 38-year, zero-interest loan will keep the annual cost down to $362 for single-family homes served by the new pipeline. Still, some homeowners seemed skeptical that the wastewater system would be a worthwhile benefit to everyone within the sewer district. One concern most frequently raised was the contribution by large institutions within the hamlet, such as ECH, ElizabethtownLewis Central School, and the County Government Complex. Merrihew explained that the rates would be slightly higher for those

Time capsule From page 1 and above the best one we’ve ever had, and the main difference was we made it a Quadricentennial event.” Those who attended the event had the opportunity to submit items to the time capsule, which is planned to be re-opened in the year 2059. “This is our way of reminding the community about the Quadricentennial,” said Decker. More than 40 items were placed in the time capsule, including a local phone book, fire department rosters, a Westport Central School yearbook, issues of the Valley News and a copy of the 2009 town budget. Letters and memorabilia from dozens of individuals and businesses were included to create a comprehensive cross-section of the town. “I think it’s very representative of what our community is right now in 2009,” said Westport supervisor Dan Connell. The stainless steel container will be sent back to its manufacturer in Pennsylvania where it will be vacuum sealed to preserve its contents. Connell said the town would be soliciting proposals from local woodworkers until Oct. 20 to build a display case for the sealed time capsule and a few other items. “We’d really like to have someone from Westport do it.” When it returns to Westport, the sealed time capsule will remain on display at the Heritage House during the summer months, and will likely be moved to the town hall in the winter. “It will always be on display in a public building yearround,” said Connell.

Monthly publications include Capital District Parent Pages and Capital District Senior Spotlight. The publishers said the purchase is a win-win for all involved. “These newspapers have a strong foundation in the communities they serve, and we believe this new ownership arrangement will allow us to enhance the quality of the editorial product and create efficiencies that weren’t available to us previously,” Tyler said. “Dan Alexander has a long history of running community newspaper companies and his expertise as well as the technological and printing resources Denton Publications bring to the table makes this a win-win.” Community Media Group LLC will continue to use the trade names Eagle Newspapers and Spotlight Newspapers and readers can expect the same commitment to community journalism they have become accustomed to over the years, McIntyre said. “This should be a pretty seamless transition for our readers, advertisers and employees,” McIntyre said. “We have a number of excellent journalists in our fold, and this transaction should allow for continued improvement of our community-based newspapers.” Denton Publications plant manager Tom Henecker said relationships like the one created between Eagle, Spotlight, New Market and Denton make sense given the current economic climate. “It’s a great thing that during these tough economic times we’re able to expand. It’s a testament to the forward-thinking owners and managers,” Henecker said. “There are a lot of years of newspaper experience that have just joined forces. It’s the proverbial win-win situation; as our company grows and gets stronger, so will our products, which will bring greater benefits to our readers and advertisers.” Michelle Rea, executive director of the New York Press Association, was integral in helping make the purchase come to fruition, saying her primary goal is creating partnerships to ensure the long-term viability of community newspapers. Rea said she was approached by Tyler and McIntyre at the association’s spring meeting and informed of their intent to seek a buyer. Rea said Alexander ’s name immediately came to mind. “I don’t think anyone has more of a vested interest in maintaining the viability of community newspapers than NYPA,” Rea said. “Given the current economy, working relationships like this not only make sense, they are a necessity.”

score twice more off corner kicks; first on a cross from Amanda Kempainen to Chelsea Guay, then from Guay to Reynolds for the header. “Chazy’s a very good team,” said Lions head coach Steve Denton. “I’ll be surprised if they don’t make it to the state playoffs. They’re very well-coached and very disciplined.” Elizabethtown-Lewis had one shining moment late in the second half when midfielder Emily Morris nearly got free on a breakaway. Katherine Tooke nabbed the save. The Lions also got a solid performance from fullback Kylee Cassavaugh and forward Katie Decker. Chelsea Provost had 12 saves in the net.

By Sarah L. Cronk sarah@denpubs.com CHAZY — Despite frigid temperatures and a slick field, the Chazy boys soccer team continued their winning streak at their home field, with a final score of 4-0 against AuSable Valley in a non-league contest Oct. 13. “I thought we possessed the ball pretty well,” said Chazy head coach Rob McAuliffe. “I thought the goals that we got were good goals and good finishes.” Tyler Bulriss, Brandon Laurin, Kaleb Snide, and Andrew Rabideau each scored for the Eagles, who outshot their CVAC opponents 14-5. However, AuSable Valley keeper T.J. Burl defended the goal well, saving six shots from the Eagles. Austin Santor collected two saves for the shutout. Overall, McAuliffe felt the team came prepared to play. “It was the seniors last game, and I think as long as we came here focused and defended well, that we should be able to possess the ball enough to generate some chances,” said McAuliffe, adding Kaleb Snide and Jordan Barriere played exception-

ally well. Despite the loss, Patriots coach Bob Hamilton was proud of his team and felt the offense possessed the ball well. “Obviously Chazy’s a pretty decent club,” said Hamilton. “The haven’t lost a game. So they’re very good.” “I think if we had scored in the first half when we had the chance in front of the goal, it would have been a 1-1 game,” he added. “It would have been a great opportunity and [we] missed it. It just went downhill from there.”

LEWIS — The Eagles made the most of their corner kicks and rolled to a 4-0 shutout of Elizabethtown-Lewis in MVAC girls soccer Oct. 9. Victoria Reynolds scored twice for Chazy, which held a young Lions team to just two shots on goal. Caitlyn LaPier opened the scoring 11 minutes into the first half, taking a short pass off a left corner kick from Astrid Kempainen. LaPier fired a curling shot that sunk just under the crossbar. Just a minute and a half later, Kempainen fired a shot from 20 yards out that Lions goalie Chelsea Provost deflected, but Reynolds found the loose ball in front of the net and tapped it in for the score. The Eagles continued to pressure the Elizabethtown-Lewis defense as Kempainen was a catch-all in the center midfield. “We did some great passing,” said Chazy head coach Karin Trombley. “Yesterday we practiced a lot on crossing the ball and just putting some body part on it.” The practice paid off as Chazy went on to

Hunting season replaces trout season

R

ecent weather patterns have taken on a distinctly, winter-like flavor. In the valleys, the foliage season struggles to hold onto its leafy beauty for just a few more weeks while at the same time, snow flurries dust the local mountain tops. With the approach of the muzzleloading season which opens on Saturday, Oct. 17, hunters now hope for a fresh carpet of snow. The transition from fishing season to hunting season took a major step forward on Oct. 15, with the completion of trout season. Although bass season still offers anglers a viable option for a “fishing fix,” many will now put away the rods and devote their energies to woodland ventures in search of deer, ducks, grouse and turkey. It’s with sadness that I accept the fact that my brook trout ventures will have to be put on hold until ice-out 2010, but I take comfort in the prospect that the brookies will be a little bit fatter and longer when I next have the opportunity to revisit my favorite waters.

Goodbye to a Woodswoman The lonesome wail of the loon carried a mournful tune last week. The wild lands and wildlife of the Adirondacks have lost an iconic figure and a staunch supporter. It was with great sadness that the Adirondack sporting community learned of the passing of Nellie Staves of Tupper Lake at age 92. Nellie was a true woodswomen, who spent a lifetime exploring and enjoying the woods and waters of the Adirondacks. Originally from Vermont, Nellie came to the Adirondacks with her lumberjack husband to work as a cook in the lumber camps. She stayed on to raise a family and have a positive impact on the community. She became one of the best known proponents of the sporting life and was an enthusiastic supporter of traditional outdoor pursuits. She truly was an original and her knowledge, skills and influence spanned generations of Adirondackers. Well into her 80’s, Nellie continued to serve as a hunter safety and trapping instructor. Renowned for her intricate fungi art, Nellie was also honored by the New York State Conservation Council with a Lifetime Achievement Award and was also inducted into the New York State Outdoorsman Hall of Fame. A true conservationist, hunter, angler, trapper, artist and teacher, Nellie was a respected participant and leader in meetings with peers, elected officials and government representatives. To many, she was the Queen of the Adirondacks. She was loved and appreciated by both sportsmans groups and the environmental advocacy groups. Nellie was an active participant and leader in meetings with peers, elected officials and government representatives. She had a voice and people listened which permitted her to act as a bridge to bring the various factions together. There will be no public calling hours or funeral. The NYS Conservation Council is setting up a fund to accept contributions in Nellie’s memory to make a donation to The Wild Center in Tupper Lake, the Natural History Museum of the Adirondacks. Nellie served on the Wild Center ’s Founding Board and lived to see the project through from concept to reality in her beloved Adirondacks. Contributions can be sent to the NYSCC, designated for Nellie Staves Memorial, at 8 East Main Street, Ilion, NY 13357-1899.

A Park in Trouble-By the Numbers I have received an overwhelming amount of feedback concerning recent articles dealing with the aging population of the Park and the lack of opportunities for our youth. Much of the information for the previous articles was gleaned from the Adirondack Park Regional Assessment Project, (APRAP) which detailed trends, demographics, economics and other concerns of our region. Across the country, rural youth are an overlooked and under-represented minority. Although our rural communities have traditionally provided a safe environment to live and grow; they are increasingly losing the simple conveniences necessary to meet the needs of their younger citizens. Simply put, there are fewer and fewer, safe, social places for kids to gather and hang out. In many towns, the local Stewart’s store serves as a social center. Many kids report their communities have very few recreational options beyond the outdoors. And many are quick to add, “Not everybody wants to fish, climb, hunt or paddle!” In the APRAP Community Survey, participants were asked, “To what extent does the community meet your community and social needs?” Concerning outdoor recreational options such as hiking, canoeing or skiing, 92 percent of respondents claimed their communities fully or partially filled their needs. But when it came time to look at indoor recreation opportunities such as basketball, hockey, tennis or a pool, only 6 percent reported being fully satisfied.

For the performing arts of theater, dance and music, only 7 percent were fully satisfied with their community offerings. Hunting and fishing needs were fully or partially satisfied by 93 percent of the respondents, but 83 percent of community respondents reported that their need for a cinema with first run movies was not a met at all. Neither was the availability of the fine arts such as painting, photography and culture, which 62 percent of respondents ranked as not being met at all. A total of just 12 percent reported that their community satisfied their need for music and concerts and only 33 percent felt that their community had adequate dining and restaurants. Most telling was a question about the extent that their community meets the need for a youth center. A total of 59 percent of respondents claimed their communities had not met the need for a center at all, while just 16 percent reported that their needs for a youth center were fully satisfied. It may be wise to look into the fully satisfied but meager 16 percent of respondents to identify how, why and when their community’s social centers function. If these centers are successfully functioning to meet community needs, they may provide an excellent platform of performance that could be modeled by their neighbors. If the successful 16 percent of youth social centers could be duplicated, it would go a long way toward stemming the ‘youth boredom issues’ of vandalism, substance abuse, teen pregnancy, despair and alcoholism that continue to plague many small towns. We must offer our youth a future that offers the promise of a sustainable economy, a growing community and a sense of pride in place. Without such options, their future certainly isn’t going to be what it used to be. Our children need and deserve a better chance at living a long, full, and healthy life. It is a process that must begin early if there is to be any hope of sustaining it for a lifetime. Joe Hackett is a guide and sportsman residing in Ray Brook. Contact him at brookside18@adelphia.net

State puts the kabosh on boats left in the woods I

f you can read this, you’re too close. That statement has absolutely nothing to do with this week’s column, but I just saw a bumper sticker printed with that timeless adage — a sticker I haven’t seen since high school. Come to think of it, this pickup could have been the same vintage as my high school days. Either way, guess I was too close. On a completely unrelated topic, did you hear the DEC passed a law which prohibits the storage of personal property on state lands? That means any boat left on a backwoods pond will be confiscated and become the property of the state. Owners can claim the boat, but not without incurring a penalty and paying for AVE AN PINION its removal. If you have an opinion In the past, the law was on this subject I’d love to worded to include only hear it - just go to camping equipment, so www.denpubs.com, click boats and canoes left on on my blog and you’ll ponds were exempt. That see an entry on this subchanged with the newest ject ... land use revision passed in May which makes it illegal to leave behind any “personal belongings.” DEC spokesman Dave Winchell posted the following announcement on the DEC Adirondack/Lake Champlain Fishing and Hunting Hotline: “Storage of Personal Belongings on State Land: Please be aware that the State Land Use Regulation was revised, effective May 2009, to prohibit the placing of structures or personal property on state land without authorization from DEC. Boats, camps, etc. should be removed from state lands or they will be removed by Environmental Conservation Officers or Forest Rangers.” I was really disheartened to hear this news. It has long been a time-honored tradition to leave boats and canoes on the shore of backwoods ponds. Sportsmen and outdoor enthusiasts alike were grateful for their presence and would leave them flipped over where they were found out of courtesy. Guides could carry other equipment for their sports knowing a comfortable boat awaited their arrival. I myself have labored to place priams and canoes many miles back on several ponds. I know of many older folks who would not have the ability to get out on the water if the boat had not been there for their use. Guess someone at the state decided they were intrusive to the Adirondack experience. If you ask me, all these regulations are getting intrusive to my Adirondack experience. I think a tree has more right than we do on state lands these days. I got shot in the woods and no charges were ever filed by the District Attorney against the man who “mistook” me for a deer in the woods. Think the same would happen if the same man clear-cut an acre of Forest Preserve? I know, I’m venting, but this one gets under my skin. There are some exemptions to the prohibition of personal property on state lands. I have listed the entire law change here, along with the specific exemptions (please note the numerous references to injuring trees.) 1. a geocache that is labeled with the owner's name and address and installed in a manner that does not disturb the natural conditions of the site or injure a tree; 2. a camping structure or equipment that is placed and used legally pursuant to this Part; 3. a legally placed trap or appurtenance that is placed and used during trapping season; 4. a tree stand or hunting blind that does not injure a tree, is properly marked or tagged with the owner's name and address or valid hunting or fishing license number, and is placed and used during big game season, migratory game bird season, or turkey season; or 5. a wildlife viewing blind or stand that is placed for a duration not to exceed thirty (30) days in one location per calendar year, does not injure a tree, and is properly marked or tagged with the owner's name and address or valid hunting or fishing license number.
