School s discuss future at forum

Congressman lauds students

By Keith Lobdell E L I Z A B E T H TO W N — I t was not an answer, but it was a chance to start to answer the questions. Former school administrator Alan D. Pole, who started his education career at Chazy Central Rural School, returned to the North Country to address over 100 people that had assembled in the Elizabethtown-Lewis auditorium Oct. 18 about the future of education and school districts in New York state. The event was put on by a joint partnership between the school boards of Elizabethtown-Lewis, Westport, Keene and Willsboro central schools. ELCS Superintendent Gail Else introduced Pole and talked about what the evening would be about. “We are trying to bring

Ausable River at center of Nov. 1 event By Keith Lobdell

Section VII title hunts begin PAGE 26 JAY — While everyone agrees that there are things that need to be done in order to rebuild and recover from the effects of Tropical Storm Irene, there are differences

in how it should be done. Most notably, there have been discussions both in the media and between local municipalities and environmental agencies and organizations on how cleanup within and along the banks of local rivers and streams

should be carried out. On Tuesday, Nov. 1, at 6 p.m., the town of Jay, along with the town of Keene and the Essex County Board of Supervisors will host a public forum to discuss the future planning of the Ausable River and its tributaries at

the Jay Community Center auditorium, located in the hamlet of Au Sable Forks. Jay Supervisor and Essex County Chairman Randall “Randy” Douglas has repeatedly spoken about his concerns about the coming CONTINUED ON PAGE 16

During the assembly, Owens presented the students with an American flag that hung over the Capitol building in Washington, D.C. during the month of September. “When I read the story in the paper about what the four of you did, I said to my staff, ‘We really need to do something because these people are demonstrating a commitment to their community,’ and as the principal said, this was something above and beyond,” Owens said. “You responded and that is the thing that we all need to do is respond to the region, for those who surround us, for those in our communities, for our families. That’s one of the great things about living in the North Country.” Darrah, with the help of her mother, Rep. Bill Owens gives four Au Sable Forks students, Christine Darrah.

She decided to get involved after seeing her great-grandmother ’s house destroyed and felt helpless, wishing she could help her great-grandmother. “I was talking to my mother about, 'I wish I could do something, I wish I could help,' and we got to talking and figured out what these people would need after they had been devastated was clothes, and they need to rebuild their houses because entire houses were destroyed,” Darrah said. After getting in contact with her former Girl Scout leader, Darrah and her mother were able to use the old Scout meeting room to set up their relief center. “If it werent for all those who helped, we would not have been able to be as successful as we were down at the center,” Darrah said. “I’d like to thank them again because what they did mattered so much.” The community pulled together, and with the help of many volunteers, the donations poured in and were able to help about 20 families, Darrah said after the assembly. “What we’ve seen here is the wrath and destruction of Irene is clearly no match for the people of AuSable Forks,” Defayette said.

he classic novel series at the Whallonsburg Grange comes to a close on Tuesday, Nov. 1, at 7:30 p.m. with a discussion of Rudyard Kipling’s “Kim” led by Valley News correspondent Colin Wells. Also at the grange on Sunday, Oct. 30, a Halloween party takes place from one to five, featuring blood punch, black cat cookies, eyeball mini-golf and severed head bowling. Check out the website for more information on this and all the other events offered at the grange. My neighbors Dennis Kalma and Alice Wand travel the world from their secluded Reber headquarters, most recently roaming for several weeks in Mongolia. They will be giving a talk at the Willsboro library on Wednesday, Nov. 2, at 5:30 p.m. on their trip, illustrated with stunning photos of this largely nomadic and beautiful place. Because I water their plants when they’re away, I got to see the show early. Coming up on Nov. 11 will be a Veterans Day dinner for veterans from Willsboro and Essex, sponsored by the churches of these towns. A program open to all starts at 4:30 p.m. in the Willsboro school, fol-

lowed by a dinner just for the vets and their invited guest. Call Linda at 963-4375 or Bobbi at 963-7984 to make reservations, which they’d like by Nov. 4. They are looking for photographs of you in uniform for inclusion in the program. Last year over 60 people attended this annual event, now in its seventh year, and all veterans are welcome. Pickup trucks parked along country roads in the early morning mean the deer rifle season is under way. If you want to get out into the woods where there are no hunters, try the CATS trail system. Watch out for ticks wherever you go outdoors. The hamlet sewer project is nearly finished, with just a couple of days needed for finishing sidewalk work and installing a pump by the marina. This foliage season ranks rather low in my opinion, with few dazzling colors and lots of muddy tones. Exceptions include beech trees, which right now are going from a lemony yellow to bright gold, and oaks, with a range of clarets, warm browns and subtle oranges. Yet to turn color are the larches, and then after they’re finished it’s really over.


t's election time again, with voting taking place on the second Tuesday of November—Nov. 8, that is—at sites in Westport and Wadhams. Westport voters registered in District 1 vote at the United Church of Christ in Wadhams; Westport voters registered in District 2 vote at the Town Hall in Westport. At both places, the polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Here’s a brief rundown on who's running for what in Westport. Incumbent Dan Connell (D) faces town councilman Bruce Ware (R) for supervisor, and three candidates—incumbent Ike Tyler (R), Nancy Page (D), and Dan McCormick (B)—are running for two spots on the town board. Incumbent Sheila Borden is running unopposed for town clerk, and incumbent Bill LaHendro is running unopposed for town justice. Looking ahead to Thanksgiving, the Westport Federated Church is offering a free turkey dinner for all on Thanksgiving Day from noon to 2 p.m. If you need a ride to the church, or if you are shut in and would like a meal delivered, call 962-8293

to make arrangements. This is one way in which the WFC congregation gives thanks for the blessings of being part of this community. On Wednesday, Nov. 2, at 7:30 p.m. the Wadhams Free Library presents a talk by Sarah Levine-Gronningsater entitled "Dismantling Slavery in New York: Capturing and Freeing Fugitive Slaves." Sarah is a Ph.D. candidate in history at the University of Chicago and this lecture, which is part of the Wednesdays in Wadhams fall lecture series, will be based on research she is doing for her dissertation. Our state had a major role to play in the abolition movement and the run-up to the Civil War, and Sarah will relate some of the dramatic attempts both to capture and liberate escaped slaves who had made their way to New York. And the night before that, the final lecture in my fall Lyceum series at the Whallonsburg Grange will delve into the history behind Rudyard Kipling's colorful novel of imperial India, Kim. A tale of intrigue, espionage, geopolitics, and spirituality— that's Tuesday, Nov. 1, at 7:30 p.m.

ell I stand corrected as the foliage is now the beautiful colours that I have grown to love so much in our area. Walking around our community is wonderful right now and temperature-wise just fine with a slight nip in the air. Trick or Treaters will be out in force this Monday as that is officially Halloween. Saturday, the Stewart’s on the corner by the bridge on Front Street will be hosting a Halloween party for children wearing their costumes this Saturday October 29th from two until four with many activities planned. That same evening for the adults of our community Brooke’s Pub also on Front Street will have a Halloween Party and Costume contest starting at nine at night. Mac’s Ice Cream shop over by exit 34 had their last weekend of the season this past weekend and have closed down until March. I thank them for the wonderful

food and company they provided throughout the year and wish them a relaxing winter. While nothing specifically is going on with the Keeseville Free Library. I would like to remind everyone of the on site computers and wonderful databases that the library subscribes to as well as a Nintendo Wii set up in the Children’s section downstairs. I’m happy to report that my one cat is thrilled to have the birds back around our feeder in the backyard. Jazz and I watched about a dozen morning doves, twenty-plus finches, some blue jays and two squirrels having a good old time on and around the feeder Sunday afternoon. The birds are quite ingenious as one big bird, usually a blue jay, will fly on top of the feeder and shake it around spilling all the seed to the ground where the rest of them get it. Stay safe and well everybody and enjoy our community at it’s most colourful.

his time of year most folks are busy with yard and garden clean up, but there’s much more than yard work that needs doing. Porch furniture that survived Tropical Storm Irene gets tucked away and grills covered. If you lost your propane tank in the flood it might be part of the collection at the County DPW workers pulled out of the rivers. The DPW yard in Lewis is now the repository of mangled charcoal grills, car parts, lawnmowers, refrigerators and twisted bridge parts. BRASS (Boquet River Association) has held three clean up days and volunteers removed four tons of trash from the Boquet and its tributaries. Dredging behind Stella Morris’s house on Water St. has taken place, and work continues at the top of Water Street where the flood damaged bridge abutments and banks. Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union also helped with fall clean up. Their mobile shredding truck was parked in front of Credit Union last week and 22 people dumped off old documents and papers to be shredded. The result was 875 pounds of paper to be recycled. TFCU also collected canned food for the E-town food pantry. The Sheriff ’s Department will be collect-

ing expired drugs, unused pills and medicines on Saturday, Oct. 29, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Kinney’s in Elizabethtown. This is good chance to clean out your medicine cabinet. Our thanks goes to Sharon Hutchins for weeding and mulching the flowerbed in front of Grand Union. The area now has beautiful blooming Mums thanks to Judy Martin. Judy would also like to plant bulbs this fall, so we can enjoy some colorful flowers next Spring. If you have extra bulbs you could donate, call her at 8732233. The ELCS fifth-grade class held a spaghetti supper last week at the Lewis Fire House to raise money for their class trip. With Mom and Dad’s help, the kids had a good time and many people had a chance to meet and eat dinner on a rainy night. There was also a raffle drawing and Haley’s Mom won the prize. Two Halloween events will be held in Elizabethtown. Visit the ELCS Class of 2012 Haunted Hale House from 6:30 to 9:30pm. Suggested donations of $3 per person or $10 per family are appreciated.

site at the Elizabethtown Town Hall at 5 p.m. “The representative is going to be at the town hall specifically to talk about the future of the New Russia Post Office,” Elizabethtown Supervisor Noel Merrihew III said. “They are coming to talk about the site and also what we can do if New Russia is on the next list of closures.” Merrihew said that there have been several meetings like this throughout the region, including in Keene, when the Keene Valley Post Office closed its doors after the lease for office space was not renewed. The Keene Valley Village Post Office was later established at McDonough’s Valley Hardware.

The New Russia Post Office will be at the center of a Nov. 1 meeting. Merrihew said that the community of New Russia could also follow a similar route. “There are options available,” Merrihew said. “If there was someone who had part of their storefront that they wanted to give for that use. There are other options as well, and that is why they are going to be here on Nov.

1 to discuss all of them.” The USPS has announced potential shutdowns nationally, which could include post office sites in North Hudson, Bakers Mills, Ellenburg, New Russia, Rainbow Lake and Moriah Corners locally. Merrihew said that the Nov. 1 meeting is open to all residents.

Win Belanger is entitled to his own opinion but not to his own facts.

The Town of Essex REPUBLICAN COMMITTEE Proudly endorses and supports our 2011 Republican Candidates:

Win Belanger’s 10/22/11-Letter to the Valley News “Voting for New Faces” is factually incorrect. He states that “without the slightest attempt to work with the Essex County IDA for a grant, Willsboro Industrial Park project was stopped.” Nonsense. As I reported in a town-wide mailer: “The Essex County IDA was going to spend over $1,000,000. on sewer and storm drains within the park until they were informed that the town sewage plant did not have the required capacity to service the park. The project is on hold until our sewage problem is solved.” BTW: We also saved tax payers a small fortune by stopping the construction of a new road from Mountain View Rd through the park to Rt. 22. (A pet project of Mr. Belanger.)

JOE PROVONCHA for County Clerk


Mr. Belanger states that there has not been one mention during Town Board meetings about filling our empty buildings or applying for a grant to aid our infrastructure. My office and the office of Code Enforcement have worked with prospects on these buildings and have kept the Board informed. Remember, the buildings are privately owned. We cannot dictate the sale price. As to infrastructure aid, we have received $58,000 for road improvements from the State. Concerning the road improvement by my house: The DPW’s 2011 budget was proposed before my taking office.

FRANK WALLS for Town Supervisor

JIM MORGAN for Highway Superintendent

Yes, there was a $20,000 cost overrun for the tennis courts. The contract had been awarded to build the courts from a grant received before I took office. Once started, it was learned that there was a structural problem with the land. The Town Board was faced with a choice: Cancel the contract and go to court, or fix the problem at a cost of $20,000. The Board decided it was better to spend the money on our townspeople than lawyers. Ball fields are planned for the future; we hope all will enjoy the new courts.

CATHY DEWOLFF for Town Clerk

Valley News Editorial

The time for action is now Local papers are here to stay O O ver the last week, there have been two informative presentations made in the Elizabethtown-Lewis Central School auditorium. The first dealt with the economic future of the North Country and was run by the North Country Economic Regional Development Council (NCEDC). The second was a presentation on the future of school districts by Alan Pole, who started his education career as a teacher at Chazy Central Rural School and has been a consultant on several studies in shared services or the merger of districts. In both cases, the message was similar, as both sides said it’s time to get the ball rolling to meet the needs of the taxpayers and the community at large. Whether it means developing a comprehensive plan that can be used as a guideline to work toward economic growth in the Adirondacks, bringing school boards together to open the dialogue into sharing services, or merging school districts, the time for action is now. Yes, now is the time to draft a plan to promote the region economically as well as consolidate services between school districts that continue to see a drop in enrollment and state aid. On the economic side, we hope that people had a chance to get to the community forum meetings held around the region over the past couple of months. Each meeting brought ideas to the council that have been used in drafting a plan that needs to be submitted to the state by Nov. 14. Once the plans from the 10 regions are submitted, they will compete for $200 million in funding from the state for projects to help bolster the regions’ economies. While NCEDC co-chair Garry Douglas said he was more concerned with the “stronger bond for collaboration in this seven-county region” and that “too much is made of the figure,” we encourage council members to make sure they present as solid a plan as they can to the state and focus on securing as much money as they can. In the near future, collaboration is not going to pay the bills that communities face. As for the discussion on school districts, the fact is the merger of school districts is something that needs to be seriously considered. The Crown Point and Ticonderoga districts are studying it. Others are taking a hard look at it. The discussion at the Elizabethtown-Lewis Central School was presented jointly by

ELCS, Keene, Westport and Willsboro central schools. At more than one of the schools, sports are starting to disappear as the districts are unable to field varsity baseball, cheerleading and basketball as well as several modified or junior varsity teams. Due to the rising costs and decrease in funding, schools are balking at the former unified swimming and baseball teams that have been part of the landscape over the past years. Classes have been trimmed, with schools eliminating a second foreign language class or other elective classes that help students be more prepared for the next chapter in life. Only one of the four schools at the meeting said that they have a business program. In all, these students are no longer gaining advantages from being in a small school; they are losing opportunities to grow, participate and progress. Combined, these four school districts have seen almost one-fifth of their enrollment evaporate over the last decade, with studies suggesting that this trend will continue. A combination of school districts like the Elizabethtown-Lewis-Keene or WestportWillsboro Central Schools will save money, give students more classes and opportunities and keep extracurricular activities and sporting programs alive. Success stories, like the North Warren Central School District, exist and should be used as a model for how such a merger could be beneficial elsewhere. These decisions will not be easy. There is nothing that stirs more passion or sparks more controversy in a community than suggesting school closures. But the handwriting is on the wall. The statistics don’t lie. Enrollment and state aid are going to continue to decline, forcing more of a taxing burden on less people — and even more year-round residents out of the region. It is time we make some difficult decisions on our own, in the interest of what’s best for our children — before they are made for us by those with no vested interest at all.

NOTE: The Valley News will NO LONGER accept letters of support for Nov. 8 political candidates

October 29, 2011

Monroe for town justice To the Valley News: The Voters of North Elba will be selecting a Town Justice and a Highway Superintendent on election day, Nov. 8. Scott Monroe, a recently retired Village of Lake Placid Police Officer of 24 years, six of these as Chief of Police, is most certainly a very qualified Town Justice candidate. Scott also has a degree in Criminal Justice, which is most beneficial to the Justice System. You will find the Justice candidates running on the Independent line. We urge you to give your approval of Scott, by marking your ballot for Scott Monroe. Republican Larry Straight is seeking another term as North Elba Highway Superintendent . The North Elba Republican Committee encourages you to select Larry as the candidate with the better knowledge of the operation of our North Elba Highway Department. The devastation that took place during the storm of Irene, indicates the dedication Larry and his crew put forth in securing safe highways, not only for our residents but visitors as well. We encourage you to mark your ballot for Larry Straight, as the candidate with the experience, for North Elba Highway Superintendent. Shirley W . Seney, Chairperson North Elba Republican Committee

Walls for Supervisor To the Valley News: The “WECARE About Essex Committee” is a non-partisan group of Essex citizens that is strongly urging everyone to vote for Frank Walls as Town Supervisor on Nov. 8, because he is: Fiscally competent; a proven successful government manager; a person with strong interpersonal skills; a respected long time volunteer; a believer in maximizing citizen participation and a person that is a team player. Why did the “WECARE Committee” decide to help elect Frank Walls as the next Town of Essex Supervisor? Simply, Frank is a respected and fair minded highly experienced administrator. We are supporting the election of Frank Walls as our next Town of Essex Supervisor because he will use over 20 years of successful experience in planning, budgeting and managing small and progressively larger work teams while an administrator within the New York City Transit Authority, where he was consistently recognized as an outstanding administrator. We are supporting Frank Walls to become our next Supervisor because he has the needed management experience and skills to be a successful Supervisor. His ability to function as a fiscal manager, program developer, and responsible supervisor will be important in the coming years. He is respected and well known for his ambulance and Fire Department volunteer work as well as for his term as Town Assessor. He best represents the Essex spirit of cooperation, consensus building and team work. He is opposed to an adversarial management style, preferring, instead, to work in partnership with citizen groups, employees and the Town Board. Because Frank Walls will insist on keeping Essex citizens in the information loop and make monthly reports of both progress and problems we need to vote for Frank as our new Town Supervisor on Nov. 8. James LaForest, Whallonsburg

Support for Bartley, Hatch To the Valley News: There are many worthy candidates running for Town Board in Elizabethtown but there are two that are truly outstanding. Margaret Bartley, who is running for Town Supervisor, knows a vast amount about local government. As a member of the Town Planning Board I have often gone to her when I need information about local facts and town laws. Those of you who have attended her slide talks about local history are aware of her love of and knowledge about the history of E-Town and her appreciation of how that can help us guide our future. Margaret is a great believer of transparency in government. She attends all our Town Board Meetings and helps those of us who aren’t able to be present know what took place by publishing minutes or making sure the meetings are video taped. She also writes a column in the Valley News informing us about local events. Many of you know Evelyn Hatch either from her 20 years of work as a legal secretary, when she ran the much loved Evelyn’s

Bakery, as Treasurer of the Chamber of Commerce, or like me as a member of the Elizabethtown Planning Board (where she served as chair and vice chair) Being with her these last four years on the Planning Board I have seen her integrity and willingness to work hard. Evelyn is not one to “pass the buck”. She is also able to see all sides of an argument and bring everyone to the table to talk. Evelyn has won the respect of her colleagues for her ability to get along and to get the job done! Both of these traits will make her an outstanding member of the Town Board. After the recent disasters from Hurricane Irene, both of these women were there, helping out neighbors who had flood damage, cleaning up the mud, feeding bunches of workers, and providing lodging and showers for flood victims! This is the kind of dedicated, caring leaders we need in our town. Let’s all come out on November 8th to pull the lever for Margaret Bartley and Evelyn Hatch! Elena Borstein, Elizabethtown

Bartley for Supervisor To the Valley News: This letter is in support of Margaret Bartley for the Elizabethtown Town Supervisor position. If Margaret is about anything, she is about open and transparent government, getting information out, and encouraging public participation. Four years ago she purchased a camera at her own expense and began taping the monthly town board meetings. Many of us who are unable to attend these meetings now have the opportunity to watch them on the access channel every Friday in the comfort of our homes. As if that wasn't enough, she began writing a summary of the town board meetings and has them inserted in the Valley News every month and, again, she provides this service at her own expense. If elected, Margaret would open the Town Hall Monday through Friday (currently it is open only Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday), publish a monthly newsletter and calendar, continue to tape the Town Board meetings and create a professional, useful and attractive town website. Margaret's energy and enthusiasm inspires those around here. She will encourage a cooperative, working relationship between the Town Board and the organizations and groups that serve our town and its people. She will work tirelessly for all of us at both the Town and County levels. I urge you to cast your vote for Margaret Bartley on November 8th. Beki Maurello-Pushee Elizabethtown

Merrihew for Supervisor To the Editor: A couple of recent Letters to the Editor have caught my eye and warrant a response. Barbara Dunsmore, of Lewis, accuses the Elizabethtown Town Board of eliminating public commentary during our meetings. This is not true. Public commentary has always been allowed will continue to be allowed. The only discussion was regarding whether it should be at the beginning or at the end of the meeting. Barbara also accuses the Board of making comments that were slanderous “fabrications“ regarding Bruce Pushee. No Board member lied about Mr. Pushee. The comments made were regarding issues that had actually occurred and were opinions regarding those issues. Bruce Pushee’s letter suggests a lack of transparency and communication within our town government. I would strongly disagree with that. Neither the Board, nor Supervisor Merrihew, have any secrets and will sit and talk with everyone who wishes it. Our meetings and the Town Hall are open to all. I also disagree with Mr. Pushee that personality has nothing to do with being a successful Supervisor. Bruce describes his candidate, Margaret Bartley, as “somewhat bossy“ and not so warm and cuddly, but sug-

gests that’s an asset and it’ll work out. It’s not an easy job folks. To be an effective Supervisor you must be more leader and mediator than bossy. I would suggest that an intelligent experienced person with a likeable personality, who is able to bring people together and continue to make things happen is what this town needs as Supervisor. Someone who can help bring business like Kinney’s, Family Dollar, and the Ti Credit Union. Someone who can put together water projects, sewer projects, and bridge projects. Someone like Noel Merrihew. Ken Fenimore, Councilman, Elizabethtown

Letter off about Hatch To the Valley News: Win Belanger ’s letter, “Voting for New faces,” in the Oct. 21, Valley News and Press Republican editorial section gives his opinion but is factually incorrect. No one refused to work with Essex County IDA on the Willsboro Industrial Park. As it was reported in a town wide mailer. It was decided by the IDA and the Town not to spend $1,000,000 on sewer pipes until the Willsboro sewer plant could handle the influent. Belanger states there are no grants for to aid our infrastructure. The town received $58,000 from a State Road Program for its 2011 Road program and they are owed $25,000 from FEMA. Belanger states that without any question the Town spent $20,000 on the road by the Supervisor ’s house. It was part of the road program for 2011, and it included Sanders Road and Sabousin Drive. The total cost less is than $20,000. Belanger states that the Town is duplicating the Comprehensive Plan Program by spending $7,500 on how the Town should look. Again he is incorrect. There was $7,500 set aside into a special account to be a part of the Gate Way Grant for stabilizing and sprucing up the Willsboro section of the Boquet river banks. Yes, there was a $20,000 cost over run on new tennis courts to solve a soil condition that was not the Contractor ’s fault. The choice was pay the contractor or go to court. The funds for the over runs on tennis courts and the river bank project come from the $27,500 owed by the expired Noble Wood Park Grant to General Fund. Belanger says that Ed Hatch is trying to take away people’s voting rights. No one is trying to take away anyone’s voting rights. The Board is asking the voters if they would like to change the Highway Superintendent position from an elected to an appointed position in 2014. Mr. Belanger was mainly responsible for stopping the voter ’s rights in the Nov. 8 election on the issue. Remember all of these issues were voted by a unanimous vote of the Town Board. Nancy P. Hatch Willsboro

Bartley for Supervisor To the Valley News: I have never met someone so interested, involved and concerned about the community where she lives as Margaret Bartley. No matter how busy she is, how many things she has to accomplish, she always makes time to help someone else. Whether it's as simple as getting someone an email address to something as involved as helping to initiate, set up and support the stain glass window fund for the expensive repairs of the town hall stain glass windows or getting down in the muck with the victims of Irene. She is an active member of the Chamber of Commerce and the ZBA, she attends all board meetings at both the county and town level. She is personally responsible for initiating the taping of town board meetings and writes the town summery you find in the Valley News. Her positive influence, determination to get things done, will have all civic organizations working together with open lines of

Valley News - 7 communication. Things will not be left as "status quot". Many people have stated "If you want something done and done quickly, ask Maggie to help". Evelyn Hatch has been an Elizabethtown business owner, she is the treasurer of the Chamber of Commerce, an active member of the Planning Board, she attends all town board meetings. She's a concern and caring person, whom will help anyone and be involved wherever she can. She would be a great asset to the town council. Elizabethtown is the county seat and it should reflect that. Please elect Margaret (Maggie) Bartley as Town Supervisor and Evelyn Hatch to the Town Council, together they will be the spark of revitalization the town needs, so that all can be proud and prosperous here in our town. Helen DeChant Elizabethtown

Thanks to youth vols To the Valley News: This fall I was moved by student athlete volunteers in my community. My children participated in the youth soccer program and our little ones turned out in droves! There were nearly 50 children between the Pre-Kindergarten/Kindergarten and firstgrade/second-grade groups (those of my children). While I was delighted at the participation, I wondered how it might be possible to keep all those little bodies and minds engaged [with just one coach]. I quickly realized, part of the master plan was to engage older student athletes from our school's soccer teams.These student athlete volunteers served as assistant coaches and so much more to our youngest community members. They played games with the children, provided individual attention, acted as positive role models and created an atmosphere of fun at every “practice.” Knowing how busy these students are their time with the children was truly a gift. Whether they offered one night or many, these students are to be celebrated for their contribution: Connor Apthorp, Jasmin Barnes, Shonna Brooks, Trevor Brooks, Kylee Cassavaugh, Hunter Farrell, Noah Farrell, Brody Hooper, Charlie Huttig, Justin LaPier,Connor Marvin, Jen McGinn, Emily Morris, Hunter Mowery, Timmy LaRock, Terry Thomas. The children adored them being a part of their experience and I'm certain the student athletes enjoyed themselves as well. I am grateful for all parent and community members who volunteer with our youth programs. Devoted and talented folks who choose to spend their time giving to others, these are unpaid volunteers. Thank you, volunteers. Your gift is lasting. Jessica Darney Buehler Elizabethtown

Help in Whallonsburg To the Valley News: For the most part, Tropical Storm Irene spared the town of Essex, but not entirely. After the storm passed, the rising waters of the Boquet River spilled over its banks in the Essex hamlet of Whallonsburg, filling up backyards, basements and the first floors of some homes. On midnight on Sunday, Aug. 28, the fire department woke up a number of residents warning them of the rising waters and helping them to evacuate. There was no time to move furniture to a higher level, or even remove valuables. These families are now trying to assess and recover from this disaster. The community has pulled together and is responding to their needs. The Whallonsburg Civic Association hosted an Irene Relief benefit spaghetti dinner and square dance at The Whallonsburg Grange on Sept. 10. This event initially raised $3,000 and since then donations totaling over $9,000 have come through the door. This fund drive became a collaborative effort as donations from the Essex Community Fund, Essex Initiatives, St. John’s Church, Essex Community Church, and the Adirondack Community Trust were pooled with those of the Whallonsburg Civic Association. Funds are currently being dispersed to those families that suffered tremendous losses. The Town of Essex and its Fire Departments and road crew, volunteers and AuSable Valley Habitat for Humanity are helping residents with ongoing cleanup and restoration work.

Schools Continued from page 1 information to the people so we can begin to explore avenues in order to meet the challenges that are facing schools today,” Else said. Pole said that those challenges include the need to raise performance in schools while dealing with declines in enrollment as well as in state aid and revenue. “This is a conversation that is going on across New York state school districts,” Pole said. “One of the fears that I have is that people think that I am coming to say that I believe that school districts should merge, but I am really here to start a conversation, and people should start talking about what the future should look like.” Pole also said that his ideas were just that until a local school board or boards started to seriously look into the options. “Until someone sits down and takes a hard look at these districts, then we are just talking,” Pole said. “I don’t think that the system of education

that we have built and that I worked for in New York state for 35 years can sustain itself.” Pole presented three options for school districts to look at, including sharing of services, a regional high school (which he later said currently is not allowed under state law), and the merging, which he referred to as the “M-word,” of two districts. “The state Board of Regents for the first time last year talked about the consolidation of school districts as a real option to save money,” Pole said. “There has been a lot of discussion across the state about the M-word, where two school districts cease in order to combine into one school district.” Pole said that there is little evidence that mergers between schools help with better educational results, but that there were long-term savings to the district and taxpayers, adding that he knew that any discussion about merging districts was less about numbers and more about emotion. “Merger studies are very, very emotional and tough enough when you are talking

about doing it between two districts,” Pole said. “Most people are looking at it because of the data and the fact that there is an opportunity to reduce taxes. There also is a natural resistance to change. The fact that there are reasons involved that are less data driven and more emotion driven doesn’t make these factors any less real.” Another topic was the sharing of administration staff between school districts, which Pole said had both positives in cost savings and negatives in sharing a chief administrator between two districts. Pole also said that school districts needed to make sure that they were doing either a consolidation of services or based on the needs of the district. “If this does not do something to deal with the issues that you are facing as a school district, don’t do it,” he said. “If this is a move that does not help you to save money, then there is no reason to do it.” Pole said that the biggest thing that needed to happen was for conversation to begin between school boards.

Pole answered a number of questions from the audience, which ranged from the impact

of the loss of a school on the community as a whole and state funding for schools that merge. “This is something that I hear about what happens if a school leaves a community and I should look at that more in my research,” Pole said. On the issue of funding and

Elizabethtown to make repairs to Scriver Rd. Budget workshop set for Oct. 27

By Keith Lobdell ELIZABETHTOWN — The Elizabethtown board bonded $200,000 for repairs in the wake of Tropical Storm Irene, which will now cover work to be done on Scriver Road. Members of three hunting camps — Beaver Meadow, Twin Tops and MKR — were at the Oct. 18 meeting to ask the board if they were going to repair the road, which was washed out during the Tropical Storm event in late August. Chris Ida, treasurer for the Twin Tops Hunting Camp, said that the repairs of the road fell to the town because the road was used for public traffic for more than 10 years. “We believe that the town should fix this up to the four-way intersection,” Ida said. “The town has been maintaining the road for at least 35 years. The road has been a public use road for at least 10

years, and it is included by the town in its CHIPS funding inventory.” The board also received a letter from Lyme Timber, who uses the Damage to Scriver Road road for access. in New Russia.

What is the agenda


To The Valley News: At the Tea Party Express debate, Moderator Wolf Blitzer asked if under Ron Paul’s Libertarian philosophy, a sick man without insurance, should be allowed to die in the hospital rather than have the state pay his medical bills, before Paul could answer, shouts of “Yes” and cheering came from the audience. The Bible gives strict warnings against taking advantage of the Poor and Downtrodden, ”He who oppresses the Poor shows contempt for their maker, but whoever is kind to the needy, Honors God.” The Tea Party Republicans are outraged about their taxes paying for a man’s life, where were these Tea Party’ers when the previous administration started two unfunded wars (?), passed an unfunded prescription drug program (?),never complaining when the very wealthy were given huge tax breaks causing an enormous drain on our treasury resulting in trillions of dollars in the deficit. Where were the Tea Party-ers then? Where were they??? Where was the outrage?? The government has been building schools, roads, bridges in Iraq and Afghanistan costing hundreds of billions of dollars, yet when the same proposals are put forth for the same building programs in America, the Republican and Tea Party want to know where the money is going to come from. When the recent storm Irene devastated the northeast and FEMA needed funds for American relief, the Republican and Tea Party couldn’t find money to pay for the relief program for Americans. The Republican and Tea Parties are willing to look the other way when spending untold and unfunded billions of dollars in Iraq and Afghanistan, but when money is needed, desperately needed to help Americans in their time of need, somehow they are suddenly worried about the deficit.

By Keith Lobdell ELIZABETHTOWN — Elizabethtown is making it easier for people to be active outside. Through a Creating Healthy Places Grant and cooperative work between the town and Jessica Darney Buehler of the Essex County Department of Public Health, the municipality has been working in a number of areas to make it easier for residents and hikers to explore local trails and parts of the community. “Our effort is focused on working to create opportunities for people to be able to get outside and be healthy,” Buehler said. “We have received markers for the trail system in the town through the grant, and we are working on ways to improve people’s ability to understand and access the system.” The current Blueberry Hill Trails system includes 22 different routes of varying difficulties, and the trail markers will be used to help hikers know the difficulty of each trail and also provide warnings of what can or cannot be allowed on the trail, such as bikes or motorized vehicles. Buehler said she and the town are working on a new map of the trail system to help promote the trails in the community. “I had lived here for a while before I knew that they were up there,” Buehler said. “These trails are a fun and easy way for people of all ages and abilities to get outside and be active.” Buehler said the new maps will include the distance each trail covers, along with difficulty levels. At the Oct. 18 meeting of the Elizabethtown Town Board, Councilman Ken Fenimore said they are also working to include GPS coordinates for each trail

as well as implementing the use of the markers on the trails. Along with the creation of a new map, the town has also started a trail stewardship program under which families and community organizations can “adopt” a trail to work on. “It is really creating local stewardship for the trail system,” Buehler, who has adopted a trail with her family, said. “It is getting people involved and engaged on the local level.” Buehler also said that work on the Elizabethtown footbridge and Footbridge Park is still progressing after suffering setbacks in late August.

“The work was pretty much done, but it took a hit with (Tropical Storm Irene),” Buehler said. “We are working on some reconstruction on the waterway and the park, and we have a trail that is going in on town property near the footbridge.” Buehler said that the new trail will be interactive and accessible. “We want to integrate music and do things that allow people to identify the plants and animals that they will find,” Buehler said. “We are also hoping to make the trail accessible so those with a stroller or wheelchair could take advantage of it.”

Westport town budget tax levy increase below cap, no wiggle room

Westport librarian steps down WESTPORT — The Westp o r t L i b r a r y re c e n t l y a n nounced that Stephen Smith, librarian for the past four years, has subm i t t e d h i s re s i g n a t i o n . Citing a desire for change, he explained he had given the library his all and now sought new opportunities to nurture his creative energy. “Stephen will be sorely missed,” Kathy Seguin, p re s i d e n t o f t h e L i b r a r y Board, said. “His friendly m a n n e r w e l c o m e d re s i dents and visitors alike for the past four years. From 1988 to 1995 he served as library assistant and then as director before moving to Oregon for three years. His return in 2007 ushered in several changes such as expansion of our book collection, adding new audio

pairs that are needed.” The tax levy for the 2012 Westport town budget currently stands at $840,244, up $8,054 from the 2011 amount of $832,190, or an increase of 0.97 percent. Appropriations were increased from $1,841,220 in 2011 to $1,873,805 in 2012 (up $32,585), while revenues are expected to go from $1,472,656 in 2011 to $1,493,189 in 2012 (up $20,533). Along with the budget, the town was also able to decrease the water rates in Dis-

Connell said that while the 2012 tax levy remains low, he bemoaned the fact that there was no money alloted for project to deal with the buildings that house the town and highway departments. “There is no money and no way that we can work on these buildings that are falling down around us now,” Connell said. “There is a few thousand dollars that we have to do some engineering studies, but we do not have anything in the budget for the type of re-


board went through the budget and went through each line item to see where we could cut.” Connell said that the biggest reason behind the town’s ability to keep the tax levy low was that there would be no raises in the 2012 budget, including with town employees. “The union really worked with us on this budget,” Connell said. “None of the employees will be getting any raises in 2012, and the union came to a three-year agreement.”

months if the Ausable is not re-enforced or worked on to prevent future flooding, especially next spring. “The flows of these rivers and brooks have changed dramatically,” Douglas said at a recent county meeting. “It’s to the point where just a little bit of water will cause flooding. If we wait until the ice jams in the spring to do something, I will lose half of my town.” Douglas also said that work needs to be done quickly. “There is definitely some research that needs to be done on the Ausable and the streams that flow into it,” Douglas said. “I understand that environmental groups are concerned about having machinery in the rivers, but I have to do what is best for the public safety of the people in my town and in my county.” Douglas said he fears it will be easier for a flood event to happen. “I was told by an anonymous source that it would take about 10 years to do a

The river ’s course and flow have changed because of what has happened this year.” The Nov. 1 meeting will start with a presentation by Dr. Timothy Mihuc, coordinator of the Lake Champlain Institute and Professor of Envi-

ronmental Science at SUNY Plattsburgh. Mihuc will display pictures taken before and after Tropical Storm Irene hit the North Country in August, especially the towns of Jay and Keene, as well as pictures of damaged public and private homes, youth facilities, fire departments, water and sewer facilities and roadways. “This forum is to give the general public the opportunity to ask questions of repre-

sentatives from the town, county, and state as well as political representatives and federal agencies,” Douglas said. “We are expecting a large turnout to share cordial dialogue regarding the future of the river and its tributaries while keeping in mind public safety and environmental concerns.” For more information on the Nov. 1 public forum, contact the town of Jay at 6472204.

UPPER JAY — A pig roast and potluck fundraiser for victims of Tropical Storm Irene will be held at the Brookside Motor Inn, on the corner of Springfield Road and Route 9N, Saturday, Oct. 29, from 3 to 11 p.m. Halloween fun and games for children will be held between 3 and 5 p.m., along with a deviled egg contest with entries to be submitted no later than 4 p.m. While many local businesses are pitching in to help provide food and beverages for the occasion, folks are still encouraged to bring a

dish to share, as well as lawn chairs and community spirit. Following the meal, the Recovery Lounge will open its doors, turn down the lights and crank up the music for a dance party. Donations will be accepted for the Jay Relief Fund to help friends and neighbors who were affected by the recent flooding from Hurricane Irene. The town of Jay — which includes the hamlets of Upper Jay, Jay and AuSable Forks — was the hardest hit region in Essex County with 149 homes, residences and businesses either damaged or destroyed by flooding from the AuSable River. There is still a great need for relief funds to help cit-

izens who lost their homes and possessions. Many local businesses are pitching in to provide food and beverages for the occasion, including Adirondack Heritage Hogs, Devins Deli, Essex Farm, Asgaard Farm & Dairy, Lake Placid Pub & Brewery, Terry Robards Wines & Spirits, Essex Provisions, Saranac Sourdough, Great Adirondack Steak & Seafood, The Cowboy and Simply Gourmet.

Economic Development Council shares plans with community ELIZABETHTOWN — While he described the task as “enormously challenging,” Garry Douglas said that the North Country Regional Economic Development Council was up to the task, as was the region. “We are all involved in this challenge, and by that I mean everyone that is in this room,” Douglas, the cochair of the NCEDC and Executive Director of the North Country Chamber of Commerce, told those in attendance at a community forum at Elizabethtown-Lewis Central School Oct. 18. “We have been stuck in a one-size fits all approach to economic development in New York,” Douglas said. “The state is a series of fairly complex economic regions, each with different assets and different challenges. Now, the governor is turning upside down the way the state looks at economic development.” The NCEDC is one of 10 economic development councils in the state charged with creating a plan to boost the economy in each region. For the NCEDC, Douglas said that the goal is to lead the economic renaissance of New York state’s small cities and rural communities.

Mongolia slide show offered WILLSBORO — On Wednesday, Nov. 2, the Paine Memorial Library in Willsboro will sponsor a photo presentation of a recent trip to Mongolia by Alice Wand and Dennis Kalma.

From the capital of Ulaan Baatar, north to Lake Huvsgul and south to the Gobi Desert this interesting country is still nomadic and remote. The show will begin at 5:30 p.m. and is free and open to the public. For more information, call 963-4478.

New carousel animal to be viewed SARANAC LAKE — On Sunday, Oct. 30, at 1:30 p.m., the Adirondack Carousel will unveil the new carousel animal, the porcupine, at Saranac Village at Will Rogers. The Porcupine is the 19th animal to arrive and five more are expected within the next few months. The Porcupine was carved by Fanning Garage Grinders, a group of carvers made up

area would not factor into the process, which he said was good for a region that has no major metro area. “If it came down to that, we’d lose every time,” Douglas said. “There is no other region at all that looks like ours does and that is challenging because we have to start from scratch with a more diverse, complex, allencompassing plan.” Douglas said that small businesses were the root of job creation for the North Country region, and that community development also played a role in their plan. “You can only have a strong economy if you have a strong community,” Douglas said. Douglas also said the Adirondack Park region is a key component of any development plan for the NCEDC. “It will very much be a part of the process not only in the beginning but as we continue down the road,” Douglas said. The NCEDC has held a number of community forums thus far, and will complete their mission of visiting every county within the region next week. “The input that we have received has been informative, helpful and appreciated,” Douglas said. “All of the input has been taken back to the council, has been used and will continue to be used as we continue to draft and finalize this plan.”

of Eileen Fanning, a master carver residing in Lake Pleasant, and her two daughters, Pamela Chappell of Schenectady and Patricia Livingston of Newport Beach, Calif. The Porcupine is sponsored by the Maggs, Schoff and Welch families. The mission of Adirondack Carousel is to build and maintain a handcrafted Carousel featuring 24 wildlife figures and a handicapaccessible chariot to be housed in a year-round pavilion with space for programs and special events. This program is free and open to the public and refreshments will be served. For more information, please contact Debbie Kanze at 8917117.

Douglas presented the preliminary work that had been done by the council and also opened the floor to public comment on what needed to be done to help the North Country grow economically. Douglas was joined at the community forum by NCEDC fellow co-chair Anthony “Tony” Collins, PhD., president of Clarkson University; Cali Brooks, executive director of Adirondack Community Trust; Terry Gach, vice president institutional advancement, Trudeau Institute; and James McKenna, executive director of the Regional Office of Sustainable Tourism. Douglas said that the council was working toward a Nov. 14 deadline to present a regional development plan to the state, at which time its plan would compete with nine others for $200 million in funding. Douglas said that while he felt good about the region’s chances to get funding, he did not see that as the main goal. “I think too much is made of the figure,” Douglas said. “Success for us in this process is that we have created a stronger bond for collaboration in this sevencounty region. We want the plan to express the opportunities, goals and challenges in this region. I do like our chances in the initial competition.” Douglas did say that the state has told the council that populus or the amount of urban development in an

LAKE PLACID — Students in Kenya will soon have another reason to smile – soccer balls, thanks to the effort of Lake Placid Elementary School students in grade four and five and physical education teacher, Matt Young. Young arranged for his friend, Keela Dates, who is the Executive Director of the Reason 2 Smile group, to visit the school on Wednesday, Oct. 19, when she accepted a donation of soccer balls from students in grades four and five. Dates, with the support of her board members and other enthusiastic individuals, work daily to provide both immediate and long-term financial stability for Jambo Jipya School in Kenya while helping orphaned and at-risk children in developing countries to receive an education and some stability in their lives. During her visit with the elementary students, she helped the kids draw notes on the balls with magic markers. The balls will ultimately be carried by

The hunt is on T

he Regular Big Game Hunting Season has finally begun across the Adirondacks, and as sportsmen and women return to the woods, it is important to note the role that hunters hold in the region’s vast outdoor heritage. For many, the thrill of the hunt defines their Adirondack experience. But, the success of their hunt isn’t always measured by the size of a rack or the quantity of deer harvested. Rather, a hunt is gauged by the quality of the experience, and it often entails traveling off trails where few other hunters are likely to be encountered. It is a process that permits them to go beyond their ordinary everyday existence, and return to a quieter, deeper, and older world. It is a world of excitement and tradition, where the freedom to roam is unhindered and the tie to our ancestors is evident. Deer hunting typically requires equal portions of pre-season prep and in-season sweat. It is a pursuit defined by numerous close calls, a high degree of patience, and occasional secondguessing. Most Adirondack hunters have experienced the unencumbered frustration of catching just a fleeting glimpse of the ghost of the woods. It is not uncommon to see more tails than racks, in the ‘dacks. The process of the hunt offers plenty of time for exploration, and provides equal shares of challenge, hard work, stealth, boredom, and nature study. On occasion, the hunt also provides exhilaration for about one out of every seven hunters. Whitetail deer are quite possibly the most-hunted animals on earth. They have been pursued across North America for as long as there have been records, and likely longer. Deer hunting it he Adirondacks region reached its zenith in the 1950’s, when the logging industry was at its peak and much of the forestlands were in the early stages of re-growth.

ETC auditions set

Conditions were ideal, with plenty of browse for the deer in the cut over forests, and the woods were more open. Proportionally, there were also a lot more hunters in the woods at the time, than there are today.

Hunting styles

Currently, NYSDEC estimates the state’s whitetail population ranges around one million animals. During the 2010 season, hunters harvested 230,100, an increase of 3.3 percent over the previous season. However, the Adirondack region accounted for only a small fraction of this total. Statewide, the success rate for deer hunters filling their buck tag is estimated at about 15 percent. Anecdotally, the overall annual success rate for hunters in the Adirondacks is less than half that number.

Who hunts, and how they do it

The most recent survey conducted by the NYSDEC provides a snapshot of today’s hunters. Typically, the average whitetail hunter in New York is a rural, white male, of about 50 years of age. Twenty seven percent of NY hunters are over sixty years old and forty two percent are over forty. On average, these hunters spend about 17 days on the hunt and 94 percent hunted relatively nearby, within their home geographic area. Slightly more than half took to the hunt in the Northern Zone, and 86 percent pursued deer in the Southern Zone. About 95 percent of all hunters got out during the Regular Season, with about 36 percent also participating in either the archery or muzzleloader season. Nearly, one third of all hunters spent their time hunting from a stationary stand, and 27 percent spent their hunting

October 29, 2011 time stalking or still-hunting. Only about 3 percent spent their time putting on deer drives. In the first year that New York state allowed 14 and 15-yearolds to hunt big game for the first time, 15,651 junior hunters took advantage of the opportunity, and harvested about 3,679 deer. This year, New York has permitted 12 and 13 year-olds to participate in the Bow Hunting Season, when accompanied by a licensed adult hunter. It is expected that the influx of young participants will help to decrease the average age of New York’s hunting population.

Where to start

Almost every hunting season, someone asks me the question “Where can I learn how to hunt?” Most deer hunters will honestly reply, “I’m still learning how to hunt!” However, I’ve been very fortunate in this regard. I’ve had numerous opportunities to hunt with a number of highly competent hunters over the years. The learning curve never ends. Unfortunately, it isn’t always an easy opportunity to come by an experienced hunter who is willing to share. Understandably, it is a short season! The vast majority of successful whitetail hunters are a rather quiet lot. They have worked long and hard to acquire the skills and knowledge necessary for success, and they’ve spent a lot of time in the woods. It is understandable, if they aren’t terribly very eager to share it. However, in most local communities there is a fair share of old timers, who are more than willing to provide some helpful hunting hints. Even the most experienced hands, were inexperienced at one point in time. Their accumulated knowledge of Adirondack deer hunting could fill volumes; but often, nobody asks. And sadly, the knowledge passes on with them. These are the folks that can provide information about an untold number of natural deer funnels, where hidden springs can be found, and lost orchards or similar locations were once discovered. Often, these old hunters are just as interested in sharing their information, as we are to learn about it. The most important element in this learning process is respect and feedback. Stop by the local Nursing Home, or the Senior Center to discover what the real Adirondacks once had to offer. I expect you’ll find a lot more than you bargained for! Joe Hackett is a guide and sportsman residing in Ray Brook. Contact him at

starting at 5:30 p.m. followed by the performance at 8 p.m. Tickets for the dinner and performance are $45 per person (formal attire preferred) and $15 per person for the performance. For more information, call 834-2800 ext. 500 or e-mail

The Kollecker film footage is shown courtesy of the Adirondack Room of the Saranac Lake Free Library. An independent film and video director, Griebsch has spent time digitizing, restoring and editing 16mm spools of film from the 1920s through the early 1960s which have been archived in the Saranac Lake Free Library’s Adirondack Room. Griebsch recently joined the Board of Directors of Historic Saranac Lake. In its 31st year, Historic Saranac Lake is an architectural preservation organization that captures and presents local history from its center at the Saranac Laboratory Museum.

Cemetery tour set SARANAC LAKE — Saturday, Oct. 29, at 1 p.m., local storyteller Bob Seidenstein will lead a tour of Pine Ridge Cemetery. The cemetery began as a burial place for the Moody family, Saranac Lake's first settlers. It grew to encompass the old St. Bernard's Cemetery and the Hebrew Memorial Cemetery, as well as the lots surrounding them. The inclusion of three faiths in one burial ground emphasizes the pluralistic nature of the village and Saranac Lake's willingness to accept diversity at a time when Jews and Catholics were

victims of discrimination elsewhere. Many of Saranac Lake's prominent doctors are buried here, along with Norwegian Seamen, guideboat builders, and architects. Bob Seidenstein grew up in Saranac Lake and has worked as a professor of English at Paul Smith’s College since 1973. Bob has loosely titled this tour, “Helping the Dead Come Alive.” Admission for the tour is $10 per person to benefit Historic Saranac Lake and the Pine Ridge Cemetery Association, a volunteer organization which maintains the historic cemetery. The tour will meet at 1 p.m. at the vault on the cemetery grounds.

Fall Craft Fair scheduled WESTPORT — A Fall Craft Fair will be held on Saturday, Oct. 29, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Westport Heritage House on Main Street. The event is sponsored by the Westport Federated Women. Crafts by local people. including candles, jams and jellies, pottery, Maple Syrup, handmade crafts, jewelry, dolls and doll clothes, paintings on slate, will be included, along with a book signing by Ralph Holzhauer and his dog, Rowdy. There will also be cook books, a 50/50 Raffle, chili and corn bread and more. For more information, contact Linda Adams at 962-8217.

Halloween at the Hall set WILMINGTON — Halloween at the Hall, Oct. 31, from 4-7 p.m. there will be a free event for the area youth at Whiteface Range Hall, behind the Little Super Market in Wilmington. There will be an indoor function that will consist of 50 or more booths that will be sponsored by people, businesses and organizations in which trick or treaters will get all kinds of free loot in a fun and safe environment. If you are interested in sponsoring a booth, all you need is treats for 350-400 people and someone to pass out your items. If passing out items is an issue we do have volunteers that can do it on your behalf. Space for the booth is free, and many sponsors decorated their own booth areas last year. All sponsors will have a poster in their booth informing people that it is sponsored by them. A program is also handed out to everyone entering the hall listing all booth sponsors. If you would like to sponsor a booth, volunteer , or would like more information about the event contact Roy Holzer at 420-6395 or at
