Town laments over closed grocery store

District Attorney race remains too close to call Unofficial results show Sprague with narrow lead

By Matt Bosley matt@denpubs.com WILLSBORO — The town’s largest grocery store has closed despite feverish efforts to keep it open for a dwindling number of customers. Store owner Mark McKenna and his wife, Wanda, cited lack of community support as the main reason for closing down the Willsboro Country IGA. Ultimately, he said, they could not compete with larger supermarkets in Plattsburgh. “We did have a lot of regular shoppers that we’d really like to thank for their support,” said Mark, “but all in all, people went to Plattsburgh.” The McKennas, who also own the Country Store on Route 22, began leasing the grocery store in 2005 after the Tops market there had closed down. Now, they say, they just can’t make it work anymore. “There’s been a big grocery store in this community for 50 years, so it’s a big change for people,” said Wanda. “It’s just hard to imagine how such a big store like that impacts so many people.” The store is the latest institutional casualty in downtown Willsboro, which over the past 12 years has lost a school, bank, and a handful of other businesses. “It’s a shame to lose another business because that’s not good for the marketplace,” said Willsboro Supervisor Lori LincolnSpooner. “I do want to thank Mark and Wanda McKenna for their effort to keep it going. We just don’t have the numbers here to support it.” In June, the McKennas switched distributors, swapping the IGA label for a line of ShurFine products that offered more competitive prices. “It did make a difference for a little while, but it just wasn’t enough,” said Mark. The McKennas will now seek to consolidate some of their services. Plans for expansion at the Country Store include adding a full line of produce and a better selection of meats and other grocery items. “Everything we had downtown is going to come here,” Mark said. “If somebody wanted to do their regular shopping here, they would be able to.” Lincoln-Spooner said expanding the Country Store would help fill the void left by the loss of the IGA, also noting the presence of Village Meat Market as a source for food items in Willsboro. The McKennas expressed concern for senior citizens within the town, which made up much of their customer base and may find it hard to shop out of town. In response, they are instituting a grocery delivery program similar to the one they had at the IGA. “We’ve always done it, and we will continue to do it,” he said.

Kristy Sprague By Matt Bosley matt@denpubs.com ELIZABETHTOWN — The race between the candidates for Essex County District Attorney is still too close to call after Election Day. Unofficial results reported after polls closed Nov. 3 show Republican-backed candidate Kristy Sprague with a 75-vote lead over incumbent Julie Garcia in the county-wide race. The margin remained close as individual towns reported their counts throughout the evening. With only Minerva and North

Attorney race. “The Democrats definitely got out the vote,” she said, surmising that many supporters of candidate Bill Owens also voted for Garcia on the Democratic line. Garcia has yet to concede, but certainly acknowledged the initial deficit in a race many had painted as a referendum on the decision of Republican party leaders not to back the candidate they had chosen four years prior. “I’m very proud of our campaign,” said Garcia. “People stood up for what they believed in.” Garcia pointed to early results in the race for Essex town supervisor as evidence that the political strength of ranking Essex County Republicans is fading. There, long-time incumbent Ronald Jackson, chair of the county Republican Committee, showed a preliminary loss to challenger Sharon Boisen by a margin of more than five percent. “When Ron Jackson takes a hit, it speaks volumes for the state of the Republican Party in Essex County,” Garcia said. “It shows the unrest in the GOP and that people aren’t just going to vote for the person the Republi-

Julie Garcia can Party wants them to vote for.” The candidates now await an official result following the count of absentee ballots. There have been 1,167 absentee ballots sent out, of which, at last report, 787 have been collected. The remaining 380 must have been postmarked by Nov. 2, but have until Nov. 10 to be received. Still, Sprague is confident her victory will stand. “I think that once the absentee ballots are counted, they will increase our margin further,” she said, adding that her campaign has actively targeted absentee voters.

Hommes elected easily to fourth term as sheriff By Matt Bosley matt@denpubs.com ELIZABETHTOWN — Henry Hommes has been the Essex County Sheriff for 12 years. Now, it appears he will have the chance to add four more. Unofficial election results released Nov. 3 showed Hommes with a commanding lead over his two independent challengers with nearly 55 percent of the total vote. The final tally credited Hommes with 5,280 votes. Westport town councilman Michael “Ike” Tyler came in second with 3,086, and former Wilmington town justice Robert Kirby third with 1,319. “I think it speaks for itself; that I must be doing what the people want,” said Hommes. “I’m very appreciative of the support I’ve re-

Elba left to report, the count showed Garcia with a 110-vote lead. Final tallies gave Sprague a tentative win, however, claiming victory by a margin of 6053 votes to Garcia’s 5978. “It was a close race,” said Sprague, “but I won, and I’m very pleased with the result.” Sprague, an Assistant District Attorney in Clinton County, received the endorsement of Essex County Republicans and went on to a narrow victory over fellow Republican Garcia in the party primary, but not before Garcia had secured the endorsement of county Democrats. “I knew it was going to be tough,” Sprague added. “[Garcia’s] a four-year incumbent who ran on a major party line, but we won, and I’m happy with that.” The towns of Elizabethtown, Westport, Moriah, Essex, and Schroon all broke heavily in favor of Garcia, but Sprague claimed significant victories in Chesterfield, Ticonderoga, Minerva, Newcomb, North Hudson, and her new hometown of Willsboro. Sprague said the presence of the Congressional race in the 23rd district contributed heavily to the closeness of the District

ceived tonight and over the past 12 years.” The convincing victory for Hommes parallels his win over Tyler in the Republican primary. There, he claimed 54.2 percent of the vote in a two-way race. Tyler continued to run as an independent, but could not pull enough voters away from Hommes. He did put forth strong showings in Elizabethtown, Moriah, and Westport, however. Tyler could not be reached for comment at the time of this report. Kirby, another independent, was also able to draw many of the voters who were seeking change. Though he had significant support in Wilmington and surrounding communities in Keene and Jay, it was not enough to challenge the incumbent.

“Naturally, I'm disappointed,” said Kirby. “I believe that we have some serious problems at our sheriff's office, and I presented some very specific solutions to them.” Kirby said he had felt a positive response from people he met throughout the county, but admitted his self-funded campaign may not have allowed him to reach enough people. “Although the end result was not what I'd hoped for, it was still a positive experience overall and I'm grateful to have had the opportunity to run,” he added. The wide margin of victory for Hommes means he has no reason to doubt his re-election. Less than 1,200 absentee ballots have been issued county-wide. “We will continue to do the job

Jackson falls behind in Essex Other races favor incumbent supervisors By Matt Bosley matt@denpubs.com ELIZABETHTOWN — The town of Essex could have a new supervisor this January. Ronald Jackson, the current supervisor, came out 14 votes behind his challenger, Sharon Boisen, according to counts taken from polling places on Election Day Nov. 3. Boisen had 153 votes to Jackson’s 139. If Boisen wins, it could mean a political power-shift, not only in the town, but county-wide. Jackson, now in his eighth year as supervisor, is currently vice-chair of the Board of Supervisors, and would traditionally be slated to become chairman of the body in 2010. Jackson also chairs the board’s Ways and Means Committee as well as the Essex County Republican Committee, though he would be able to continue in the latter post regardless of re-election.

Boisen, who ran as an independent, has never held an elected office before, but has been involved at the town level on various project committees in recent years. “I’m thrilled with the current result, and I’m looking forward to being town supervisor,” she said, crediting much of her success to a hardworking group of supporters. “People really want to see some changes.” Jackson reacted optimistically toward the initial count, noting that roughly 50 absentee ballots are still out for Essex residents and could potentially close the gap. “It’s still within the realm of possibility,” he said. “Either way, it’s been an honor being supervisor for eight years. If I get two more years, that’s great. If I don’t, it’s been an honor being supervisor.” Other races were much more favorable to the incumbent. In Westport, supervisor Daniel Connell was elected to a fifth term, defeating challengers Bruce Ware and Bruce Dunning by a wide margin. According to unofficial results, Connell led with 404 votes; Ware came in a distant second with 187, while Dunning

Supervisors look at suing state By Matt Bosley matt@denpubs.com ELIZABETHTOWN — Officials in Essex County are threatening New York State with a lawsuit for what they say has been poor stewardship of the Crown Point bridge. The Essex County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously Nov. 2 for a resolution “directing the Essex County Attorney to assess the feasibility of filing a class action lawsuit against the State of New York for negligence in the state’s maintenance of the Crown Point Bridge...” Crown Point Supervisor Dale French, who proposed the resolution, said the suit should aim to recompense commuters and businesses for their additional costs and loss of patronage they have suffered as a result of the bridge closure. “The state has not only ignored the warnings from the Essex County Board of Supervisors by not properly maintaining the Crown Point Bridge, but failed to develop a contingency plan for bridge closure that could have been swiftly implemented,” he said. According to French, the bridge’s closing has caused millions worth of financial loss to businesses in the region. The call for a lawsuit echoes the tone of

State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli, who last week criticized the State Legislature for repeatedly diverting funds from the state’s Dedicated Highway and Bridge Trust Fund. According to DiNapoli, only 35 percent of the money in the fund has gone to repair roads and bridges since 1991. He pointed to the Crown Point Bridge as a specific example of crucial infrastructure that fell into severe disrepair as a result. Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafava said he, French and Ticonderoga Supervisor Robert Dedrick attended a meeting Oct. 30 with Vermont and New York State officials at the site of the bridge, though none of the three had received invitations. The prevailing plan discussed at that meeting, Scozzafava said, was to establish ferry service at ports near the bridge. Unlike ferries in Ticonderoga and Westport, the new ferry would supposedly run yearround with departures throughout the day and night. Like other ferries, it would be subsidized by the state and free for motorists and passengers. “We’re hopeful that this new plan is put in place,” said Scozzafava. “It wouldn’t solve all the problems, but it will certainly make life easier for the thousands of people who depend on that crossing on a daily basis.” Dedrick expressed frustration with the

BUY IT! SELL IT!

state for not making an effort to include local officials in the planning process. “They don’t even involve us at all,” he said. “They’re making decisions and we’re being left out of the loop.” Scozzafava agreed, saying the local governments shared the goal of finding a solution and contributing to its implementation. “Communication right now is crucial,” said Scozzafava. “That’s part of the reason we’re in this mess to begin with.” North Elba Supervisor Roby Politi expressed concern that with ferry service established at Crown Point, the state may decide to forego repairing or replacing the bridge. “One of the options still out there is to replace the bridge with a ferry,” said County DPW Supervisor Fred Buck, “so don’t think it can’t happen.” “That’s a fight for another day if they propose that,” said Scozzafava, “but right now we need that ferry.” Dedrick also called for immediate action. Though the proposed ferry would be an icebreaker, he said it would have to be put in service before too much ice forms on the lake. The rest of the board agreed, voting unanimously for a resolution urging both New York and Vermont to implement the new ferry as a temporary measure.

Federal funds boost weatherization program By Matt Bosley matt@denpubs.com ELIZABETHTOWN — A greater number of homeowners in Essex County will get help buttoning up their homes this winter thanks to funds from the federal stimulus package. More than $5 billion has been set aside as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act for use in supplementing weatherization assistance programs across the country. Adirondack Community Action Programs administers the program in Essex County, which has helped to make nearly 60 homes each year more suited for cold weather. According to Barb Allen, Weatherization Assistance Program coordinator at ACAP, New York State is among those

receiving the largest slice of federal funds with a grant of roughly $395 million. Meanwhile, state funding for the program has remained steady at $99 million statewide. The funds are divided to each county based on population and number of seasonal heating days. “So for Essex County, what that means is we’re going to be doubling our production schedule,” said Allen. ACAP’s Weatherization Assistance Program will now be able to assist roughly 140 homes annually, and to a greater degree. Those who qualify for the program can receive a diagnostic weatherization assessment to find potential air leaks and other shortfalls in energy efficiency. Once the problem areas are identified, ACAP arranges for

installation of insulation, maintenance for heating systems, weather stripping, repair of windows, and other minor fixes. The program may also provide carbon monoxide detectors and, in some cases, the replacement of old refrigerators with newer, more energy-efficient ones. A post-weatherization inspection is performed after the work is finished to assure that improvements are effective. Previously, no more than $4,500 could be allotted to improve each home. With the added stimulus funds, the limit has jumped to $6,500. “It’s all about serving those in need,” said ACAP executive director Alan Jones, who noted the program’s financial and environmental benefits. “It eases the burden on working families so they can use that money for medicine, food, or whatever

else is needed.” Eligibility requirements for the program mirror those of the Home Energy Assistance Program, or HEAP, in regards to income guidelines. Applicants are generally addressed on a first-come-first-serve basis, and at this point, Allen said, there is still a waiting list. “The sooner they apply, the sooner they can get on that list,” said Allen. Applications for ACAP’s Weather Assistance Program are available for download on their website at www.acapinc.org. For more information, contact Barb Allen by calling 873-3207 or e-mail ballen@acapinc.org.

alloween came and went without much activity, it did not seem like there were very many out trick & treaters, and saw very little evidence of things strewn around. This could have been partly due to bad weather of rain and high winds, a lot of flu like sickness all around the community. The school has experienced high absenteeism this past week, from both students and staff. We are seeing the wind down of the political process with the elections this past week. The Bonfante’s hosted a gathering for Kristy Sprague recently, they are very gracious host and hostess for such occasions. Hopeful that all the political signs come out of yard soon, there is a time limit for them to remain in place. Hopeful that a large number did get out to vote your choice, every vote is important. Happy to announce the birth of twins, a girl Regan Scott and a boy Bradie Steven born to Jessie & Scott Hommes, they came a little early but reports are that all are doing fine. They have some very proud grandparents. A note of concern is learning of another elderly person falling, Veletia Shepard fell in her apartment and has a broken hip. Rita Benedict is reported to be doing well after her surgery on her broken hip. The Willsboro Girl Scouts would like to send out their thanks for the community support of bringing your returnable bottles and cans to their redemption site at the Country Store. They realized a high revenue this past year due to your donations. All of this money stays here in Willsboro for their work and needed supplies. They are continuing this project if you would

Another first for the North Country is starting right here in Willsboro, it is the forming of the Adirondack Artisans & Crafter & Farmers Association. This is the first time that all three of these groups have been able to join together and make their wares available. They will be holding a first time event at the Willsboro Central School Gym on Sat. Nov. 14, from 10 to 3. All things for sale that day are made by the local crafters and local farmers goods available. This could be a good chance to get a head start on your holiday shopping. Reports are that the movie being made here in Willsboro is coming along fine, they have been shooting local scenes off and on this past week. Reminder that the Film Society will be showing the movie “Food Inc” at the Whallonsburg Grange Hall on Sat. Nov. 7 with the film being introduced by local farmers Lori & Mike Davis.

ovember is here, bringing the first chill of impending winter and shorter days... but also the joys of holidays shared with loved ones and the enjoyment of autumn harvest. Thanksgiving, for many families, is a time to come together for turkey and ham, stuffing and pumpkin pie. You may be tempted to share your feast with your furry family members, but this practice may not be as kind as you might think. Your pet's diet normally consists of commercially manufactured dog or cat food that is nutritionally balanced and is all they need for good nutrition. When owners feed table scraps, a companion animal’s diet becomes unbalanced. Supplemental food added to an already balanced diet contributes to pet obesity - and when the supplemental food is foreign to their digestive systems (and contains many of the artificial elements required to make food taste good to humans), the result to companion animals is often gastrointestinal distress – vomiting or diarrhea. For pets who do not appear to get "tummy troubles" from these tasty treats, there are still behavioral consequences of sharing your food. Your pet may develop a habit of "begging" at the table. This can quickly develop into an annoying behavior that is difficult to eradicate. In truth, when we share our human food with our pets, we are satisfying our own emotional needs - to the detriment of their well-being. So keep those yummy leftovers for yourself, and offer your pet some quality cat or dog food for their supper! Our featured pet this week is Rascal, a female Maine Coone/mix who is a beautiful glossy black. Maine Coones are known for their size, luxurious thick fur, intelli-

Rascal gence, and loyalty, and this sweet lady lives up to her breed! She likes to greet visitors at the door and takes an interest in the goings-on around the house. She would rather have a lively conversation and some playtime - with you than spend her day sleeping away in the sun. If you are looking for a frisky feline who is full of personality, you will want to meet Rascal. If you have a big heart for pets but no extra room in your home, you might want to consider volunteering at our shelter to help in the daily care of our pets. Our animals always want attention, and the more interaction they have with people, the better their socialization skills will become. You will not only have the enjoyment of spending time with some great pets, but also increase their chances at adoption. Why not stop by and found out more today?

Colin Wells • WestportNYNews@gmail.com further south. It was felt that the existing travel corridor should be used for whatever solution is found. So by the time the meeting in Moriah was convened, any alternate location had been pretty much dropped from consideration. It was clear that the temporary solution had to originate from the location of the current bridge. Also attending the Moriah meeting were the head engineer from the NYS DOT, representatives from the governor's office, and State Senator Betty Little and Assemblywoman Teresa Sayward, along with a number of town supervisors and other concerned local officials. At a follow-up meeting of the Essex County Board of Supervisors last Monday morning, Dan said it was decided that the supervisors of the four towns most directly impacted—Crown Point, Ticonderoga, Moriah, and Westport—would serve as liaison with state agencies in dealing with the situation. So it looks like some good progress has been made in reestablishing this vital transportation link across the lake. I'll keep you posted on further progress in the weeks and months ahead. Meantime, we can all go on wondering how this embarrassing debacle was allowed to happen in the first place.

ell, I hope you all have enjoyed the respite from my column last week. But as Jack Nicholson said, “I’m Back.” Before I get rambling, congrats to the Belzile’s for the fine job rehabilitating beat-up Barton House. See where some “concerned citizens” were the only ones who did not enjoy my column two weeks ago. I promise never to try to be humorous ever again. Nyways, I certainly enjoyed the written response from them. I must take exception to the use of the word “Tirade,” however, since a tirade is mostly verbal according to the Oxford. It seems that a tirade is protracted, vituperative, and intemperate, with a continuous amount of harsh condemnatory language over a long period of time and space, use of much censorious imagery and language, and characterized by extensive verbal abuse. I hardly think my one sentence qualifies for being vitriolic. In fact I consider my remarks to be intenerating in nature. What say you readers? Now for some good news! The election is over and it is time for all of us to feel free of personificus umbrage and get ready to work together. I personally am so glad to

be free at last, to paraphrase Martin Luther King. By the by, this issue of the Valley News is catalogued as Nov. 7 and everyone, except former President Bushy, remembers the significance of that date. But, in a speech he gave at Pearl Harbor, he was quoted as saying “who can ever forget Oct. 7 that date of infancy?” Oh, speaking about politicians, I see where Dede's campaign literature included a picture of Newt Gingrich (he who is well named Heh) announcing his support. Just think she had to pay for that and it is my contention that the picture of a newt was the last mistake she made. Thanks to the reader that sent me a survey from the Democrats. Next week, it gets the same treatment as the Republicans received. Now I don’t know as I write this polemic the winners of local elections. I will tell you what “Tip” O’Neil, that grand political from Massachusetts once said whilst sipping brandy, to wit, “People get the politicians they deserve.” My feelings about national elections are best summarized by that fine Southern philosopher, Rhett Butler, who succinctly said, “Frankly my dear, I don’t give a xxxx.”

estport Supervisor Dan Connell gave me an update recently on the Champlain Bridge situation that I'd like to pass on to you. There have been several meetings over the past couple of weeks, and it looks like a temporary solution is beginning to emerge from them. The suggestion that Dan said is getting most play right now is to put two icebreaker ferries into service at or near the site of the present bridge. The ferries would be large enough to handle high volumes of traffic and they would run 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It was interesting to hear Dan describe how this process unfolded, beginning with large public meetings first in Vermont, on Oct. 27, and then in New York, on Oct. 28. The New York meeting was held in the auditorium at Moriah Central, and it was very well attended—Dan estimated some 300 people came, filling the place.

oped and ripe. We must grow the plant all summer long before we can harvest the bounty. In addition to having a long growing season, winter squash requires quite a bit of room. The plant is a vine that rambles quite a distance. Even the bush varieties still require quite a bit of garden space. So, in the end, you have a plant that takes a lot of growing time and space. But, every year I still plant winter squash. It is highly nutritious, stores easily, and tastes great. Now knowing I can get an additional harvest out of this already great vegetable makes me excited for the next growing season!

hile at a recent conference, I was handed a set of cards recently released by Pride of New York promoting certain vegetables. The front of the cards all had a photo of a fruit or vegetable with a saying such as ‘Nosh on Squash.’ The back of each card contained information about that fruit or vegetable. The one vegetable that caught my eye was indeed the squash. And, the interesting fact that caught my eye was not the slogan, but the fact the card claimed you can eat squash leaves. Never doubting Pride of New York would place false information on their cards, I all the same researched this notion. And, sure enough, tender squash leaves and tendrils. I found many ideas for stirfrying the leaves and tendrils. Next summer, I will have to try this idea. The idea of using the squash leaves excites me — one because I like to try new foods, but also because I like to be resourceful and use garden space wisely. Winter squash is a warm-season vegetable, which means it requires warm soils and warm days to thrive. The first frost withers the leaves and vines of this tender plant. If you have never grown winter squash, you may find this odd since we eat the squash during the fall and winter. Unlike summer squash that we harvest young and eat before it is fully ripened, winter squash we harvest and eat when it is fully devel-

Damn those Finns! F

inland is a country that is frequently chosen as the healthiest place in the world to live by a variety of organizations. They jealously protect their air and water quality. Many of their health indictors are among the best in the world. Though they have their own language, don’t worry if you travel there as over 50 percent speak English. As if those superlatives were not enough, now their children are dominating international academic performance tests. Schooling in Finland looks very different from schooling in America. In Finland, students do not begin school until the age of seven. The average student rarely gets more than a half hour of homework. There are no honor societies, no valedictorians, no school uniforms and no special classes for the gifted. Teachers and students address each other by their first names. While many American parents hover over their children, Finnish children are expected to be more independent. Seven year old students trudge to school in the dark, pick out their own lunch, which are free, and carry their trays to their tables. There is no internet filter at the school library. Finnish students like rap music, spend lots of time on the internet and express their rebellion with piercings and blue hair just like their American counterparts. However, by the time these students reach ninth grade, the Finish students will be way ahead in Math, Science and Reading. Tests that were administered to 15 year olds from 57 countries found that Finland’s combined scores for Math, Science and Reading were near the top and American students’ were far behind. Finland’s powerhouse performance has gained international attention and educational representatives from 50 countries have studied Finland’s educational approach.

In the classroom, teachers don’t push gifted students ahead of everyone else. Instead, students that get the subject quicker assist students that don’t get it so quickly. Finnish educators believe that By Scot Hurlburt helping weaker students first achieves better results. Brighter students assist average ones without harming their own progress. Finlanders are known for their love of reading. Libraries are frequently attached to shopping malls and a book bus travels to remote neighborhoods. Unlike American schools, Finnish schools are equally funded no matter where they are located. Students don’t worry about paying for college; it is free. There is competition for specialties like medical school; however, no college has an elite status like Harvard. Finnish researchers believe that the overall health and preparation of their students before attending school is the primary reason that their students do so well. Health care and college are free and the standard of living in Finland is among the highest in the world. Okay, I think I get it. All we have to do is provide everyone with free health care, a high standard of living and make college free to improve our school systems. That should be easy enough, don’t you think? Remember all kids count.

Organizing coupons more efficiently T

his week, I’m happy to answer another question from a reader like you who is learning to supercoupon: Q: “In reading your column, I’ve not seen how to organize my coupons. In one of your early columns, you suggested keeping the entire booklet of coupons together. So I do. But then when I’m shopping I don’t know what I have. If we don’t clip the coupons out and categorize them, how do we know what we have on hand?” A: Thankfully, using coupons is easier than it’s ever been. Much of that is due to the method that I use, which I call a “clipless” system because you clip less! I only cut the coupons I need for each week’s trip. All of the other coupons stay in the insert, where they are easy to find when I’m planning my next shopping trip. In the past, in order to match coupons to sales, people would cut absolutely every coupon they received in their newspaper inserts and carry them all around, usually in a big binder or box. This method, though, is the reason many people give up on using coupons. It’s incredibly time-consuming and tedious. Most of us want to save money without investing hours in cutting and sorting little pieces of paper each week. Here’s how I organize and use my coupons. When my coupons arrive in the newspaper each week, I take all of the inserts and write the date on the front. Then, I store them in an expandable file. These are inexpensive and can be found at any department or office-supply store. I use one pocket for each month and a typical accordion file can hold six months’ worth of coupons or more. When I’m ready to plan my shopping trips and cut the coupons I’ll need, I head to the Internet. There are many coupon Web sites that help you match coupons to sales. On my Web site, www.supercouponing.com, I’ve got a free coupon lookup utility that’s very easy to use! You type either the name of the product you’d like to find coupons for

(such as “Kellogg’s”) or a general category of product (“dog food,” for example) and the coupon lookup returns a list of all of the coupons currently in your inserts along with the values, purchase requirements and expiration dates. This database also delivers information about exactly where to find your coupon. When your inserts arrive, perhaps you’ve noticed each one has By Jill Cataldo a name at the top, such as Procter & Gamble or SmartSource. The database will tell you the name and date of the insert that contains the coupon you’re looking for. At that point, you simply pull that insert out of your file, cut the coupon you need and return the insert to the file for use another day. This is a quick, easy system to use. You’ll be surprised how quickly you can plan your shopping trips with it. On an average trip, you might use 10 to 15 coupons. Wouldn’t you rather just cut those few rather than the 40 or more that arrive in the inserts each week? Using the “clipless” method, you’re only cutting what you need — and if you don’t need a coupon, you’re not spending time or energy cutting it out or carrying it around.

Barn dance a resounding success

OPINION • VALLEY NEWS - 7

Readers Poll Results

Question: How concerned are you about the indefinite closing of the Crown Point Bridge?

To the editor:

Work of United Way crucial To the editor: Clinton & Essex Counties are great places to live and raise a family. I have said this for years and continue to believe it. Part of what makes this area such a great place to live is the people who choose to live in this area, be it job or other reasons. There is a great sense of community here and people genuinely care about each other. I have seen close up the various organizations that United Way supports. The Champlain Valley Chapter of the Compassionate Friends, Family Promise of Clinton County, Inc., Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, RSVP both of Clinton & Essex Counties, Literacy Volunteers, YMCA, and the Senior Citizens Council to name a few. Whether you know it or not, most all of us have been touched by one of the organizations that United Way supports. I never thought I would need the services of one of these organizations, but a few years back I reached out to the Alzheimer ’s Disease Assistance Center. I did so because I have a family member that is suffering from Alzheimer ’s, and I needed help understanding the progression of the disease and the decisions our family was going to be faced with as time progressed. They helped me and my family tremendously and I am grateful that they exist due in part because of your donations to the United Way. Now I know that the economy on a national level is unsettled and even here we are feeling the effects of the slowdown. However, as one person once told me, a crisis is never scheduled. No one schedules to be out of work or to get sick. A youth does not wait until times are good to get involved in drugs or to need help with homework. Our senior citizens would prefer not to need Meals on Wheels. At times like we are in now is when the services of a lot of the programs we support are needed most. As we look to cut back on some things, I hope that United Way is not one of them. In fact it is time to step up and increase your contribution or make that first one. To fully fund our agencies request, we need $700,000. This is money that stays in Clinton & Essex Counties, goes to Clinton & Essex Counties agencies, benefiting Clinton & Essex Counties residents. We need your contributions and we need you to encourage those around you to contribute as well. Please, help me in my march around the county and support our community by supporting United Way. For more information, please contact myself at 562-6515 or John Bernardi, at 563-0028, or visit the United Way website at www.unitedwayce.org or your contribution can be mailed to 45 Tom Miller Road, Plattsburgh, NY 12901. If you have made your contribution, thank you! Rest assured your dollars will be wisely used to change lives right here in Clinton & Essex Counties. Phil Racine Plattsburgh

Disheartened by theft of cash To the editor: I decided to go out on Halloween night, my honey had gone hunting for the weekend and I enjoy seeing all the costumes that people conjure up. So I went to one of our local establishments. I am a very honest person so i guess in a naive way I trust people. The evening was enjoyable until I got up to go and use the restroom. I had left $17 on the bar. I know the owners and foolishly thought my money would be safe until I returned. When I returned there was a women sitting in my chair. She was dressed up in a not so creative costume of a robe, a towel wrapped around her head and it looked like cold cream on her face. She saw me and immediately left and disappeared. I sat down and noticed my money was gone. I questioned one of the owners and she did not seem to care that someone stole my money, right in front of her as a matter of fact. Needless to say I will no longer patronize that establishment again as they dont seem to care about dishonesty from their customers, or defending their honest patrons. What is this world coming to. What is wrong with people. I dont understand. I am becoming very discouraged in our town and the world. I hope people remember what goes around comes around, eventually.

Batter Up!

Willsboro thespians step up to the plate with “Damn Yankees” By Matt Bosley matt@denpubs.com WILLSBORO — The World Series may be over, but baseball fever continues as 25 students in grades 6-12 will perform as part of Willsboro Drama Club’s production of “Damn Yankees.” “Last year we did ‘Carousel,’ which was a very dramatic, dark kind of show,” said the show’s director, Derrick Hopkins, “so this year we wanted to do something very cartoony and fun.” Set in the 1950s, “Damn Yankees” tells the story of Joe Boyd, a frustrated, middleaged baseball fan who risks selling his soul to the Devil in order to become Joe Hardy, the talented young slugger his team needs to advance in the playoffs. In the process, he gives up his own identity as a devoted husband. When Joe has second thoughts about leaving his old life behind, along with his wife, the Devil, disguised as a slick salesman named Mr. Applegate, sets a series of ploys in place to prevent Joe from turning back on their bargain. Hilarity ensues as Joe must ultimately decide on the things that really matter to him. “You can just sit back and enjoy the fun characters,” said Hopkins, “and you get 25 students in grades 6-12 make up the Willsboro Drama Club cast of “Damn Yankees.” Performances of the musical are scheduled for Nov. 12-15.

Patriots race past Saranac By Matt Bosley matt@denpubs.com CLINTONVILLE — The Patriots kept their playoff hopes alive with a win over Saranac in the Section VII Class B girls soccer quarterfinals Nov. 2. Sidney Flint’s goal midway through the second half proved to be the gamewinner in a highly defensive and tightly contested match. “I think it gives our team confidence heading into Wednesday,” said Patriots head coach Keith Raines, noting how flu symptoms had kept many players out of practice in the week leading up to the game. The Patriots outshot Saranac 4-2 in the first half as both teams struggled to develop scoring opportunities. Shiloh Bourgeois and Michelle Taylor helped lead an ironclad defensive effort for AuSable Valley. “They did a great job containing their two forwards,” said Raines. Saranac battled the Patriots in the middle of the field, getting solid efforts from Molly and Jackie Bowen. “They had a couple of good chances in the first half, but so did we,” said Raines. “The second half, I think we controlled play a little bit better, and we capitalized on our chances.” AuSable Valley finally broke through near the 19-minute mark when Johanna Recny sent a pass to the front of the goal box for Flint. Chiefs goalie Kaitlyn Wood came out for the save and collided with Flint, who was able to push the

shots by Megan Bowman floated just high of the crossbar. AuSable Valley goalie Jena Finnegan collected four saves for the shutout while Wood and backup goalie Stephanie Linder combined for seven Saranac saves.

Thank You Where do we begin because words could never express all that Charlie’s family is feeling. How do we ever thank all of you, mostly, for the love that you felt and showed Charlie while on this earth and his passing. There was no place else that Charlie wanted to live since he was 15 and camped in Speculator. He loved the Adirondack Mountains and his Adirondack family (all of you). You think he made your day but you made his every time he was around town. I know he was watching from heaven and was there in spirit as you all shared your last moments with him. Our deepest appreciation to the Emergency Squad, State Troopers and the Elizabethtown Community Hospital staff. We thank all of you for your prayers, Mass attendance, cards, food, visits, phone calls, gifts, flowers, plants, words of encouragement and for sharing your stories and feelings about Charlie. “CHARLIE’S LIFE HAS JUST BEGUN” With Love & Gratitude The Delia Family & Baxter too! 42473

Arguments heard for Lewis Farm legal fees By Matt Bosley matt@denpubs.com ELIZABETHTOWN — Representatives for the Adirondack Park Agency and a local organic farm now await a judge’s decision regarding a potentially hefty sum of money. Lewis Family Farm, a 1,200acre organic farm near Whallonsburg owned by Salim B. “Sandy” Lewis and his wife, Barbara, is seeking roughly $208,000 to pay for legal fees in a dispute that twice rejected an agency claim to jurisdiction over three houses built there. On Oct. 29, Judge Richard B. Meyer heard oral arguments from John Privitera, attorney for Lewis Family Farm, and from Assistant Attorney General Loretta Simon, representing the Adirondack Park Agency. In March 2008, the agency had fined Lewis Family Farm $50,000 for failing to obtain APA permits for three modular homes built for employees of the farm, which is on land classified as resource management. A mid-level appeals court ruled unanimously against the APA in July after Meyer had decided in favor of the farm in November 2008. The state declined any further appeals. Now, it must demonstrate it was “substantially justified” in order to avoid paying the farm’s legal fees. Privitera said the agency should be made to pay because it made a blatant error in inter-

preting its own law. “There is no case where a violation of a statutory scheme, as here, has been found to be substantially justified,” he said. Much of the APA’s argument for justification hinged on an August 2007 decision of Acting Essex County Supreme Court Justice Kevin K. Ryan, who was first to hear the dispute between the APA and Lewis Family Farm and affirmed the APA’s authority to issue a determination. According to Simon, Ryan’s decision also affirmed the APA’s argument that the houses in question were not agricultural-use structures. Meyer challenged that assertion, however. “Didn’t he really just say that the APA had the authority to look at this and decide whether or not they had jurisdiction?” Meyer asked. “The only determination he made was that the matter was premature.” Simon also argued the APA was justified because the main issue in the case had never been argued in court before, and involved such a complex matter of law. “If it was such a novel issue, why the $50,000 penalty, and why include a provision that the farm can’t challenge the agency’s jurisdiction?” Meyer asked. After hearing arguments and rebuttals from both sides, Meyer reserved judgement on the decision.

When an accident is not an accident

Deer hunters awaiting first tracking snow

C

ool weather and strong winds have recently combined to help defoliate much of the local hardwood forests. Without the camouflage offered by the typical thick, leafy cover, whitetail deer are much easier to spot. However, whitetails will still travel primarily through the thick conifers or corridors of beech whips, which retain their leaves much longer than mature beech. Whitetails can blend into the beech whips and become essentially invisible. It’s no wonder whitetails are referred to as the 'Ghost of the Woods.' The rut has already begun in the Northern Adirondacks and bucks are already in the process of seeking does. Scrapes and rubs are becoming more apparent. While looking for love in all the wrong places, bucks will lose much of their natural wariness and a great deal of weight over the new few weeks. It is the time to be in the woods as a combination of open woods and less wary, wandering bucks will certainly benefit the hunters. Throw a few inches of fresh tracking snow into the equation and it’ll be a whitetail hunter ’s nirvana.

Coyotes on the prowl? Know as a trickster, sneak, brush wolf or coydog, coyotes are again in the news. According to news reports, last week a pair of coyotes attacked and killed Taylor Mitchell, a young, Toronto singer and songwriter as she hiked alone along the popular Skyline Trail in Cape Breton Highlands National Park, in northeastern Canada. Experts expressed shock over the incident, which most claim was completely out of character for a species renowned for its shy, elusive manner. Although there have been reports over the years of coyotes attacking pets and livestock, and even a small child, it is extremely rare for them to attack and kill an adult. “To me, this looks like two yearlings with very little hunting experience, very little experience with humans, probably very hungry, maybe a little bit desperate,” explained Dr. Simon Gadbois, an animal behavior specialist at Dalhousie University in Halifax “Coyotes are very discreet, very shy animals. They are also very curious.” If Mitchell ran from the coyotes or panicked, she may have triggered a predatory response in the animals. Gadbois revealed citing reports that indicate she had bite marks over her entire body. In the Adirondacks, it is quite common to hear coyote songs on still, dark nights. The sound of their yips, yaps and yowls still carry for miles on the evening air, just as they have since the 1920’s.

Yet, coyote attacks on humans are extremely rare. Despite a small number of attacks on people, most of these incidents have involved small children under 5 years of age. With over 3 million children bitten by dogs every year, the likelihood of a child getting bitten by the family pet is a million times more likely than by a coyote. Coyotes exist on a diet that includes rabbits, birds, mice, chipmunks, grasshoppers or other small animals they can overpower. They also eat a lot of berries, which in late summer can constitute about half of their diet. While many sportsmen believe that coyotes have decimated the Adirondack deer herd, the vast majority of their deer take consists of fawns. Although coyotes can easily take down adult deer. “They’re about twice the size of the western variety, weighing around 40 pounds,” according to Gary Foster, a wildlife biologist at DEC Region 5. “They may not kill a lot of deer that way, but they can stress the herd and run them out of the area. We don’t see a lot of the damage coyotes do during the season.” But, DEC readily acknowledges the impact that coyotes can have. According to Foster, “They’re extremely wary creatures. It takes a good trapper to take coyotes consistently.” Hunting regulations for coyote have been loosened in recent years as trapping has not proven to be the most effective method of controlling the coyote population. “We had a number of attacks on pets this past spring and summer. Coyotes are very adaptive creatures. We had some real problems with them this year in Saratoga and Fulton County and in the western park of the state.” “Rabbit hunters have reported losing beagles to coyotes and domestic dogs have been attacked as well. We try to reduce their numbers by hunting,” explained Foster, “which is why we have such a long season. It goes from Oct. 1 until March 28.” Indeed, the rather relaxed hunting regulations for coyotes permit night hunting, with the aid of lights or lightgathering scopes. Furthermore, hunters are permitted to use electronic calls and even mechanical decoys while hunting coyote. Regulations even permit dogs to be used in the pursuit of coyotes.

GREAT START TO THE 2009 SEASON

e are only a few weeks into the fall hunting season and already we’ve seen two careless acts by hunters — one in Vermont and another in New York. The first took place Oct. 22 when a man mistook another for a deer and fired at him with his Connecticut Valley Arms muzzleloader. The bullet tore through the man’s abdomen and, at last report, he was listed in critical condition. The second took place Oct. 25 and involved a turkey hunter in Vermont who mistook a man sitting in a camouflage chair for a Tom, shooting him in the head and torso. His condition, too, is critical. Having been shot myself in the throat during a deer drive in 1993 by a man who mistook me for a deer, I speak from experience when I say, please, please identify your target. There is a certain amount of risk associated with hunting. Uncertain things can and do happen — like a man firing at a deer and hitting a target beyond he never knew was there. But, mistaking a human being for a game animal or bird is unconscionable. You cannot take back the bullet after you pull the trigger. I know — I live with the repercussions every day of my life, as does the man who made that near deadly decision 16 years ago. So, please think before you act. Here is the information regarding the two shootings: In New York: On Oct. 22 at approximately 7:41 a.m., State Police in Canton were called with a report of a hunting accident off Dayton Road in the town of Potsdam. Investigation revealed Ricky A. Brunelle, 43, Ellenburg Depot, was hunting on property he leases off South Canton Road in the town of Potsdam. Brunelle and his hunting partner split up and began hunting at approximately 7 Ricky A. Brunelle a.m. Brunelle stated he later observed what he thought was a deer and fired one shot from his Connecticut Valley Arms, .50 caliber muzzleloader rifle. He heard someone shout from the direction he had fired and he found Bernard H. Sharlow, 39, Norwood, had been struck in the abdomen by the shot he had fired. Sharlow was accompanied by another hunter. The hunters carried Sharlow to the road and he was transported to Canton/Potsdam Hospital in Potsdam by EMS. The New York State Police Troop B Forensic Identification Unit responded to assist with processing the scene. St Lawrence County District Attorney Nicole Duve was advised. Brunelle was charged with second-degree assault and arraigned in the Town of Potsdam Court before Town Justice Sam Charleson. He was released under the supervision of the St. Lawrence County Probation Department. Further investigation into the incident is ongoing. In Vermont: On Oct. 25, at approximately 8:18 a.m., State Police and State Game Wardens responded to Sand Hill Road in Bradford to a 911 call that a turkey hunter had been shot. Upon arrival, troopers, game wardens and Upper Valley rescue found the victim, Ryan Terrill, 22, Bradford, suffering from gunshot wounds due to shotgun bird shot. Terrill was transported to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center where he is being treated for his injuries. The shooter was found to be Richard Sylvester, 49, Topsham. Initial investigation showed the scene was a cornfield bordered by a wood line located off Sand Hill Road. Terrill was sitting in a camouflage chair just inside the wood line. He was wearing full camouflage clothing. Sylvester was walking from the roadway along the edge of the wood line when he shot at what he thought was a turkey, striking Terrill. They were not hunting together. Terrill was struck on his left side torso and head region. Sylvester attempted to render aid to Terrill; he then left to a nearby residence to call 911. He then returned to the scene. State game wardens are reconstructing the scene. There will be a joint investigation with the wardens and State Police detectives. The case will be reviewed with the Orange County state’s attorney upon completion.

Friday, Oct. 30 proved to be a lucky day for David Smith, and his son-in-law Hugh Goff, who each filled their 2009 buck tag. Smith connected on a gorgeous 10-pointer, while Goff connected on a nice six-pointer. A third member of the crew, Jeff Cross shot a five-pointer Nov. 1. Pictured above are, left to right, Eugene Smith, David Smith, Ben Goff standing with his father Hugh’s deer and Jeff Cross.
