Town council planning for reassessment

By M. LISA MONROE Express News Staff

At its regular meeting last m o n t h , the Town of Webb b o a r d asked Appointed A s s e s s o r Jean Murdock to look over the applications for t h e job of re-assessing the town's property. The last time We b b property was re-assessed, the new assessments were felt by the public to be so flawed that the board voted them down. Murdock is looking at the companies that have applied for the job and evaluating them accordingly. "The companies being interviewed specialize in mass a p p r a i s a l , " said Murdock. "The selected contractor will d o the necessary statistical a n a l y s i s required for a successful mass appraisal (revaluation). This will include developing land tables, depreciation schedules, and cost per square foot, all based on the comparable sales. This work will help to eliminate the inStd Prsted U.S. POSTAGE PAID OLD FORGE, NY PERMIT #24

equities that have developed since the 2005 revaluation," she said. The four companies that t h e town is looking at to do t h e revaluation are all indep e n d e n t companies without a n y ties to the county, and Murdock will make a recommendation by the end of this y e a r. The company that is chosen will do the revaluation in time for the 2012 tax roll. Murdock feels that a revaluation is important to the town s o that the tax burden is s p r e a d fairly throughout the area and equity and fairness are re-established within indiv i d u a l neighborhoods and across neighborhoods. "The longer the period of t i m e between revaluations, the lower the equalization rate b e c o m e s . During extended p e r i o d s of time, the level of a s s e s s m e n t on individual properties begins to vary sign i f i c a n t l y and equity of asPlease see TOWN, Page 34

The king of Snodeo

Annual event keeps planner busy

By M. LISA MONROE Express News Staff

Dennis Michael is a very busy man, especially in the weeks leading up to Snodeo, Old Forge's kick-off to the snowmobile season, for which he is the chair. Snodeo has been going strong now for 33 years. It's the first big snowmobiling event of the season in Old Forge, and it gives snowmobilers, snowmobile manufacturers, and vendors their first chance of the season to reconnect and share their love of snowmobiling with others who feel the same. Dennis has been involved with putting on Snodeo for 11 years. "This is just a great event, it's so much fun. People are ready for snowmobile stuff after waiting for so many months," said Dennis. The event, which is hosted by the Central Adirondack Association, will feature the 2010 models from the big four companies: Y maha, a Arctic Cat, Skidoo, and Polaris, who will offer demo rides if the weather cooperates, as well as a vintage snowmobile show, wares from 38 vendors, and even a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus. There are special events just for the kids, too. "The sport is starting to get more and more family involvement. It's not just the `gearheads' anymore. We have the Kitty Cat races for the kids to compete in and this year we have a special raffle just for the kids. Tickets

are $5 and they can win a sled, their choice of a green or a pink one," Dennis said. Dennis' family gets involved in Snodeo, too. His wife of 37 years, Eileen, and his daughter and her friends all come down to help out. Dennis' son works at a ski resort in Jackson Hole and since his busy season is starting he can't be at Snodeo. Dennis says that he really enjoys planning the event even though it's a lot of work.

Getting all of the vendors situated in the pavilion is difficult, but Dennis has help from the Inlet Barnstormers Snowmobile Club with setting up and tearing down, and the volunteers from the CAA and the town all contribute. There have even been some improvements to the George Hiltebrant Recreation Center on North Street, where the event is held, in time for

`Sounds of the Season' at arts center

The Arts Center/Old Forge is pleased to announce "Sounds of the Season," a musical recipe to celebrate the holidays, with a dash of poetry and a smidgen of storytelling. Several local groups and community members have joined together for this family-friendly event that will take place at 2 p.m. on Saturday Dec. 12 at the Arts Center inside the "Home for the Holidays" exhibit. Members of Niccolls Church, St. Bart's Church, Mountain Theatre, The Senior Moments, and more will sing and play music from traditional to contemporary tunes. Some of the highlights include " `Twas the Night Before Christmas" by Niccolls Choir, The Senior Moments with "Silver Bells," and a duo singing "Baby, It's Cold Outside." A newly formed group from the Arts Center will sing, and there will be a surprise trio -- "Three Tenors" -- that will complete this recipe for the holiday. This event is free and all donations will benefit the Arts Center 's performing arts budget. If you haven't had a chance to visit "Home for the Holidays," this is a good opportunity to see the exhibit. There are many items on sale including furniture, clothing, toys, membership baskets, lighting, ornaments, quilts, wreaths, and much more for gift giving. J

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR A hope for Peace on Earth

To the Editor: December is traditionally the time many in our species intensify their hope for peace on earth. Peace defined in a holistic way means a human population that is friendly to other species and the earth; children who are healthy and safe at home, on the streets, and at well-equipped schools; families that are guided by integrity and wholesome problem solving; seniors who are wise and treated with caring respect; health care for all, minimizing disease and fear of debt; higher education available to all those seeking it; jobs for any who want one and are qualified; news media that are truthful, relevant, fair and thorough; religions that nurture goodwill and well-being toward all; governments that are representative and responsive to all the people, with the `haves" sharing with the "have nots;" nations that are supportive neighbors and receptive to cooperative, just, conflict resolution. While this holistic vision of peace is presently not a reality, we dare not give up hoping and working for its eventual realization. TIMOTHY HUME BEHRENDT, Cold Brook, N.Y.

On the passing of Clarence Petty

To the Editor: With the passing of Clarence Petty, we have lost a true Adirondack hero and a great New Yorker, the likes of which we will probably never see again. Without doubt, Clarence Petty, who died Monday [Nov. 30] at age 104, was one of the most important and inspirational figures in the history of the Adirondack Park. He was an ardent conservationist, activist, woodsman and pilot, and came to know nearly every square foot of the Park through his lifelong experiences in the region. He made it a life mission to regularly express his concerns and interests about the future of the park

often through letters to state officials that he either hand wrote or typed on his antique mechanical typewriter. His input was greatly valued. After serving as a Navy pilot during World War II, Clarence returned home to work for the Conservation Department (now DEC) as district ranger in Cranberry Lake. He held this position for 11 years and, combining his forestry and flying skills, was the first person in the state to fight forest fires using lake water dumped from an airplane. Later, as a Conservation Department liaison to the New York State Legislature, he surveyed 10,000 acres of wilderness over a three-year period -- often on foot -- to identify those areas suited for strict protection. During that time, he hiked, snowshoed, canoed or flew over virtually every acre of state-owned land in the Adirondacks. In 1970, Governor Nelson Rockefeller created a commission to study the future of the Adirondacks and asked Clarence to serve on the commission. Traveling on foot and in a canoe, Clarence conducted an inventory of a phenomenal 1,300 miles of Adirondack rivers, mapping the Park's most primitive areas. The commission's final report led to the creation of the Adirondack Park Agency. Through the decades, he never stopped working, flying, advocating and sharing his knowledge

his final "Questions for Clarence" column is in the current edition of the Adirondack Explorer magazine. In 2003, he received a Governor's Award for contributions made to the environment. Not only was Clarence inspired by the Adirondacks but also he helped shape the Adirondack Park we know today. He didn't do it for the thanks, but for the love of a magnificent place that he called home for the past 104 years. Yet we owe him great thanks for the breadth and vision of his contributions. PETE GRANNIS, DEC Commissioner

The reason for the season

To the Editor: It's time that we stand up for the real reason for Christmas! They are not "Holiday Trees," they are Christmas Trees! We are not celebrating the birth of a Holiday, like the stores and a few people want to say. If it were not for Jesus Christ being born on Christmas Day, the stores wouldn't have their biggest shopping days of the year. We are celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. So, we would like to say to each and every one of you, Have a very Merry Christmas and enjoy your Christmas Tree! God Bless you all. BOB AND MARIE SHUE, Old Forge J

"It's great. We have two wireless mics, and the speaker comes down in the middle of the pavilion like they have in sports arenas. There's an iPod dock, a five CD changer, and an amplifier. It enhances the pavilion," Dennis said. How Dennis ended up in charge of the event is a cautionary tale for those who attend committee meetings. "I used to buy my sleds from Phil Martin, the owner of Big Moose Yamaha, and he invited me to a snowmobile meeting. I started helping with Snodeo in 1998. A few years later, I was at a meeting and I left the table for a few minutes and when I came back I was the new chairman," laughed Dennis. But even though planning an event like Snodeo is hard, Dennis thinks that the benefits outweigh the difficulties. "The thing I like the best is knowing that I am helping the CAA and the town benefit from this event," he said. J

this year's Snodeo. There are 80 more parking spaces and a brand new sound system. "We had a portable sound system, and the people in back couldn't hear and the people in front were getting blasted all day long," said Dennis.

One of their first requirements was to meet Clarence," said Dan Plumley, Protect's director of conservation programs. Clarence started or helped to start many initiatives in the Adirondacks, including one of the first citizen organizations to protect the Adirondacks in 1974. In 1990, Clarence joined the Residents' Committee to Protect the Adirondacks. In 1994, the Association for the Protection of the Adirondacks presented him with its Lifetime Achievement Award, and in 2000 with its Howard Zahniser Adirondack Award. In 1998, Clarence inspired leadership gifts to the organization's first capital campaign to create the Center for the Forest Preserve. In 2005, Clarence provided seed funds for the Clarence Petty Fund to Protect the Adirondacks, which supported Protect's first internship, and which evolved to become the Adirondack Park Stewardship Training Program. Clarence was always thinking about and acting for the future, and helping nonprofit, citizen organizations from the Adirondacks to Alaska to plan ahead and strengthen themselves. Protect the Adirondacks! is a grassroots, not for profit, membership organization dedicated to the protection and stewardship of the public and private lands of the Adirondack Park, and to building the health and diversity of its human communities and economies for the benefit of current and future generations. It operates out of offices in Saranac Lake and the Center for the Forest Preserve in Niskayuna. Protect results from the 2009 consolidation of the Residents' Committee to Protect the Adirondacks and the Association for the Protection of the Adirondacks. J

This is a call to all artists working in soft pastel. The Arts Center/Old Forge is seeking entries for the sixth annual Northeast National Pastel Exhibition, which will take place from June 11 to July 10, 2010.

Both digital and slide entries will be accepted. To enter the show, print the prospectus from www.ArtsCenterOldForge.org or call the Arts Center at (315) 369-6411 to have a prospectus mailed to you. Juror of Selection Lorenzo Chavez was born in New Mexico. He has been painting professionally since 1985, and his work is featured in six galleries in the United States and is included in private and corporate collections nationally and internationally. Chavez has participated in several national invitational group exhibitions, and his work is featured in articles in Southwest Art, Artists of the West, The Pastel Journal, and American Artist. In 1996, he was named one of the ten most collectible young painters in the county by Art Talk magazine. He has been the recipient of many prestigious awards and honors from nationally notable groups and museums. Juror of Awards Susan Ogilvie's creative efforts have resulted in a busy gallery exhibition schedule, numerous national awards, and signature status with the Pastel Society of America in New York.

According to Russell, the $92,151,298 budget is .38 percent more than the current year 's fiscal plan. The overall county tax rate of $4.94 per thousand dollars of assessed valuation is 3 cents less than the 2009 rate of $4.97 per thousand dollars of assessed valuation. The tentative budget calls for cuts of 14 vacant positions, includes $1.46 million in jail reserve from the one-quarter percent sales tax, and uses $400,000 of fund balance from the highway fund, $182,000 of fund balance from the general fund, and $25,000 from the Stop-DWI reserve. Additionally, the 2010 budget provides for no new vehicle purchases except for the highway department; however, the purchase of four new cars for the county sheriff 's office was recently approved using funding in the 2009 budget. The 2010 tentative spending plan increases the senior tax exemption from $13,000 to $15,000. J

LOCAL NEWS IN BRIEF Holiday fun at the arts center Saturday

Saturday, Dec. 12 will be filled with holiday events at the Arts Center/Old Forge. From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., you can make a holiday clay ornament, a handmade keepsake to hang on your tree or to give as a gift. A cookie cutter will be used to cut out ornaments from clay. No previous experience with clay is needed. After drying, the ornaments will be fired and ready to pick up the following week. There is no charge to create one ornament. This activity will overlap with "The Best Little Christmas Cookie in the Adirondacks" competition. Drop your cookies off by noon (one dozen), make your ornament, and then sample the entries after the judging at 1 p.m. The cookie competition, in the spirit of holiday fun, gives everyone the opportunity to show off their baking skills as well as to enjoy the skills of others. Everyone has a favorite holiday cookie. Break out your favorite recipe and compete for the honor of creating the Adirondacks' Best. First and second place awards will be given out in the adult and children's divisions. A cookie tasting reception, open to all, will follow the judging at 1 p.m. May the best cookie win. At 2 p.m., members of the community will perform "Sounds of the Season." All these events are family-oriented and free. They will take place inside the "Home for the Holidays" exhibit.

Basketball boosters are grateful for financial support

On behalf of the Wandering Eskimo Basketball Boosters (WEBB), I would like to offer a heartfelt "thank you" to those who donated toward team basketball shoes this year. This past summer saw unprecedented participation in basketball camp by our local boys and girls, more than doubling the total number of attendees from any single previous year. While such interest bodes well for the future of the sport at the Town of Webb Schools, it did leave the boosters with a somewhat depleted bank account. The remaining funds left from previously acknowledged businesses who donated prior to camp were combined with new pledges from Thendara Automotive and Perkins Plumbing and Heating, allowing us to underwrite the cost of basketball shoes for the nearly forty members of our girls JV, boys JV, and boys Varsity squads. A very special nod goes to Pat and Carol Perkins, whose extremely generous gift represented a large portion of the funds raised for shoes. Once again, our appreciation to the community for the strong support the boosters continue to receive, and GO ESKIMOS! Sincerely, Chuck Walley J

Pets available for adoption

By M. LISA MONROE Express News Staff

In the story last week about the humane society visiting Christmas on Main Street, I incorrectly identified the humane society as the The Stevens-Swan Humane Society. The group that was in Old Forge was the Humane Society of Rome. Here is information on how to adopt one of their wonderful animals. Adoption Rates: Cats (already spayed or neutered) - $90, includes FELV/FIV test, first shots, worming, and flea control treatment. Kittens (and cats not spayed or neutered) - $125, includes FELV/FIV test (kitten must be 4 months old), first shots, boosters (if still in shelter after 21 days), worming, and flea control treatment. Cost includes a $35 refundable deposit as per NYS Spay/Neuter Law. Dogs (already spayed or neutered) - $120, includes heartworm test, first shots, rabies shot, worming, and flea control treatment. Adopter must also pay a

The set-up, owned by library trustee Alan Woodruff, is made up of both old and more recent rolling stock and "gadgets." In 1968, the larger Lionel Corporation purchased A.C. Gilbert and closed its factory. Since that time, Lionel has continued to manufacture a few items under the American Flyer name.

Candlelight service at Big Moose chapel

The Big Moose Community Chapel will hold its annual candlelight Christmas service at 4 p.m. on Sunday,

ing the 1940s and is a holiday classic. Nine-year-old Ralphie (Peter Billingsley) desperately wants a Red Ryder BB Gun for Christmas and wages an all-out campaign to convince his reluctant parents (Darren McGavin and Melinda Dillon) that the toy is safe. Meanwhile, as Ralphie prepares for the big day, his brother has a strange relationship with food, and his dad fights the never-ending furnace battle. The movie will be shown at 11 a.m. at The Strand Theatre in Old Forge. The event is for children ages 12 and under with adult supervision. The children will each receive a drink and popcorn at no charge. There is no admission charge for children or adults. Santa and Mrs. Claus

SPORTS Boys varsity basketball

The boys varsity basketball team had only one game on their schedule this past week and that was a home game against Oriskany played last Wednesday, Dec. 2. After losing to this same team last Saturday by only one point, all expected this game to be just as closely played. It was for the first half, however, Oriskany came out strong to start the third period and put the game out of reach early. Oriskany had a seven-point lead at the half but outscored the Eskimos 21-11 in the critical third period. They coasted in the rest of the way to win 65-48. Tory Delacruz led Old Forge with l8 points and 13 rebounds. Eric Socash had eight points and seven rebounds. Other scorers were Sam Waterbury with six, Malik Barron with five, Patrick Venetz with four, Jason Perkins with three, and Connor Rockhill and Brian Josephson each with two. It was not a good outing for this team as they played their first game before a home crowd. That fact could have made them a bit more nervous than usual, but many of the starters are seniors and should be ready. When looking at the "stat" sheet after the game, one thing jumped out at me and that was the number of turnovers committed

The team committed 27 turnovers, a number that is way too high to defeat a strong team like Oriskany. Hopefully, the team will work hard to improve on this part of their game, and if they do, they will pick up many victories during the season. -- Dave Clark last Wednesday, Dec. 2. This match also opened their league portion of the season. Oppenheim, always a tough foe, defeated Old Forge, 25-7, 25-17 and 25-15. As in any sport, the opening game can be ragged and this was no exception. But, after a slow start, the team did improve their play and became more competitive. Jessica Menges led the team with four aces and one kill. On Saturday, Dec. 5, the team traveled to Dolgeville to take part in their annual tournament. Five large schools were there: the host school, Dolgeville, coached by Town of Webb alumna Barb Risley Allen, always a good team, Beekmantown, Cooperstown, VVS, and Herkimer. Then there was little Old Forge to complete the six-team round robin affair. Each school plays two games against every other school competing that day. Old Forge split their two games with Herkimer for their only victory of the day and ended up tied for fifth place with Herkimer. Dolgeville won the tournament in a squeaker over Cooperstown and it was decided by how they did on head-to-head play. Menges played well again and had two aces, one block, two kills and 12 digs. Alicia Burnett had four aces, three kills and eight digs, and Kaylin Parent had six aces. By vote of all of the coaches at the tournament, Daria Orekhov was selected to the all-star team for her fine play throughout the day. -- Dave Clark

Gir ls modified volleyball

On Monday, Nov. 30, the girls modified volleyball team took their show on the road to play Remsen. The A team lost 25-12 and 25-15. Just getting back from their thanksgiving vacation, the team was not sharp as they did a poor job of returning serves and there was a lack of good communication on the court. The A team also had some injuries which meant that some B team members had to come up to play in this contest. Robin Yuckle was the leading scorer for Old Forge with nine points. The B team lost their first game to the Rams, 25-15, but they came back to win the second, 25-15 only to lose the

third and decisive game, 25-7. They had trouble getting the ball over the net to keep a rally going and that lack of consistency was the difference. Kennedy Scott was the leading scorer for the Eskimos. On Tuesday, Dec. 1, the team hosted New York Mills. The A team lost the first game, 25-10, came back to win the second, 25-14 and then lost an exciting third match 25-23. The team played much better than the previous day and were led by Jodi Bolton, their leading scorer. The B team got their first victory of the year by defeating the Mills, 25-21 and 2516. This was a great win for the team as they got good play from Briana Brownsell

and Emily Hoffman who did a great job of retuning the ball. Alexcia LaFountain had her best game of the season as she led the team in scoring with nine points. On Saturday, Dec. 5, they hosted Oppenheim. Old Forge had only one team as they had only eight girls dressed for the game. The team showed even more improvement as they defeated Oppenheim, 25-20 and 25-17. They played a third game for practice and Oppenheim won that game 26-24. Allyson Brosemer played a strong game and was the leading scorer with 12 points. Their improved play was quite evident and they communicated better to each

Gir ls junior varsity basketball

The girls junior varsity basketball team played two games this past week with mixed results. On Tuesday, Dec. 1, they took the long journey to Richfield Springs to take on a much larger school. That did not bother the girls as they rolled to an early 16-2 first quarter advantage and coasted to a 38-12 victory. They had a 22-4 halftime lead and raised that to a 34-6 third period advantage. No starter played more than one half in this lopsided affair. Leading the way for the Eskimos was Haley Josephson who scored 16 points and had many rebounds. Katie Connell showed improvement as she rebounded very well and scored eight points. Chelsea Balcom had six points, Elizabeth Getty had four points, and Haley BushHoffman and Logan Faria each had two.

The victory was their second straight win to open the season. At home on Saturday, Dec. 5, the team played an exciting game against a fullcourt pressing Oriskany team. Not having seen that this year, Oriskany jumped out to a quick lead. However, Old Forge solved the press and played better ball and managed to tie the game at eight by the end of the first quarter. Thanks to some fine outside shooting by Connell they took a 16-12 halftime lead. The turning point in the game was in the third period when Oriskany outscored the Eskimos 14-2. With a couple first teamers sitting on the bench, Oriskany took full advantage with their press and built up a 26-18 lead that Old Forge could not quite overcome. They tried hard but came up shy as they lost the game 28-25. It was a game that could have gone to either team, but Old Forge did not shoot the ball well as they missed a ton of easy shots. They also need to do a better job on their team rebounding.

Connell had an outstanding game as she hit on two 3pointers and scored 14 points. Connell also had 12 rebounds, one assist and two blocked shots. Josephson did not have a good shooting day, but she certainly helped on defense, in rebounding and in beating their press. Josephson ended the game with eight points, 11 rebounds, three assists and two blocked shots. Allysa Kearns had two points and Samantha Notley had one.

Remsen Tournament. This game was no different as Oriskany had control of the game throughout. Old Forge battled hard in the opening quarter of play and could have had the lead if they had made some of their easy shots. They seemed to play nervously and rushed many of their shots. A more experienced and deeper Oriskany team took advantage and opened a solid lead

in the second quarter to take an 18 point lead by the half. For all intents and purposes, the game was over at that time. Scoring for the Town of Webb Schools were Garrett Pavlus with six, Parker Clemans with five, Trevor Godemann had four, Greg Hunkins scored three, PJ Perkins had two points, and Bert Yuhasz had one point. -- Dave Clark J

sessments is compromised," said Murdock. Basically, (very basically) the equalization rate is the difference between what your assessment says your property is w o r t h and what the market says your property is worth. The state sets the equalization rate; in the Town of Webb the rate is 74 percent. This means t h a t , on average, houses in Webb are selling for 26 percent more than what they are assessed for. The problem is that the equalization rate is an a v e r a g e . Some houses in Webb are selling for 40 percent more than what they are assessed for and some sell for exactly what they are assessed for. But the same equalization rate applies to all property. Having a low equalization r a t e also devalues exemptions. "The equalization rate af-

fects the value of exemptions a p p l i e d to property. For instance if a veterans exemption has a value of 15 percent of t o t a l assessed value and the e q u a l i z a t i o n rate is 74 percent, the exemption has less value," said Murdock. Murdock wants the revalu a t i o n to take place without t h e public outcry that was heard the last time it was attempted. She hopes that when people realize how the system works they will be more open to the revaluation. "Helping people to understand that the people in some neighborhoods where propert i e s sell near assessed value are picking up the tax liability for people in neighborhoods where sale prices far exceed assessed values is important. We have to help people realize what that means to them," she said. J

Ray Carr of Old Forge kept a bundle of issues of Old Forge's first newspaper, The Adirondack Arrow (a weekly), that he found in the attic of a house he bought on Main Street Old Forge 48 years ago. The papers date from the 1930s when the economic climate was not unlike today. He had this idea to share them with readers of the Adirondack Express through this History Heritage column, defined his concept, organized the old issues and pinpointed articles he thought would be of special interest to readers. So in the weeks ahead, thanks to Ray Carr, readers will go back in time and see what was news some 70 years ago on the Fulton Chain of Lakes during The Great Depression. Inside The Adirondack Arrow January 15, 1931: MORE DEER KILLED Albany, Dec. 7 - There were 7,805 deer killed by licensed hunters in New York State during the recent hunting season, according to figures complied by the Conservation Department. This is the largest number of deer taken in any one year since the law was passed providing for a special license for deer hunters. ELECT OFFICERS On Tuesday the Old Forge Electric Corporation elected officers, the personnel of the board elected being as follows: President, A. Augustus Low; vice-president, L. K. Tiffany; treasurer, A. Augustus Low; assistant treasurer, L. K. Tiffany; assistant treasurer (sic), Louis D. Harwood; secretary, David Kelly; assistant secretary, Randall K. Hulbert. TAKES SECOND PLACE Overconfidence and playing subs against the fastest team that has ever played on the Town of Webb court nearly cost Don Case's Indians the second place in the Northern Division of the Press Suburban Basketball League on Tuesday night. At the close of the first quarter the score was 10-0 in favor of Turin and while in the second quarter the Legion captured 7 points, Turin in turn gathered in 11, leaving the score 217. The locals really commenced to play in the third quarter, holding the visitors to 4 points and capturing 9, still leaving the score 25-16. It was not until the last quarter that the locals really got into action and it was a real fight from then until the close of the five-minute overtime period. It was during this last quarter that the score was tied and the tie basket was not thrown until a minute before the final whistle blew. During the five-minute overtime period pandemonium reigned supreme and one of the largest crowds that have ever witnessed a basketball game in Old Forge fairly went wild when Deis dropped in a penalty toss, giving the Legion undisputed second place in the League. Final score: Turin 34, Old Forge 35. GOES THROUGH ICE Paul Bunk, pilot, and Harold Paugbum, passenger, of Schenectady, had the unpleasant experience of having their plane break through the ice on Lake Pleasant Sunday when they attempted to land on same. Both escaped with minor injuries. LYONS FALL BANK REORGANIZES The tangled affairs of the Lyons Falls National Bank have at last been brought to a favorable conclusion.

SUGAR SPICE

Part I

Baking with the stars

As I sit here in my office, furiously typing away to beat that looming Thursday deadline, I can't help but think that the pretty little bit of snow on the ground outside of my window is really helping me get By into the Christmas spirit, and LESLIE fast. Good thing, because WILLARD I'm a little, shall we say, grumpy right now, as I'm running very behind this week and feeling a tad stressed. And I don't do well with stress. (But hey, `tis the season, right?) See, we just flew back in from our Thanksgiving trip to the "left" coast, and there were approximately 12,537 things I had to do before I could even think about sitting down to write this column. Like unpack, pick up the dog, pick up the ton of mail awaiting me in my P.O. box (bills and catalogs galore.), start thinking about buying and shipping presents, work on the cookie party I'm planning for our daughter's friends (once they're all home from school), work on neighbor gifts, because I love them so, and finally clean up my e-mail inbox. I needed to organize the wonderful recipes that friends and relatives so graciously sent to me for this three part series I'm writing on holiday baking. Going through all of those recipes really cheered me up. I feel so blessed; I asked, and boy did I receive. Each Tuesday until right before Christmas I will share with you the top secret holiday recipes I've been graced with -- all of these home chefs are truly baking "stars" to their family and friends. I hope my friends will inspire you to bake something new for those you love this holiday season. First in line is the very popular Maureen Van Slyke of Eagle Bay (mom of Annette Mahoney). Maureen is quite famous for her piano playing and Christmas cookies, especially her Christmas Wreaths and Santa's Whiskers. Thanks, Maureen. MAUREEN'S CHRISTMAS WREATHS Melt over low heat: 1/2 cup butter or margarine, 30 large marshmallows Add to melted mixture: 1/4 tsp. green food coloring, 1/2 tsp. vanilla Pour entire mixture over 3 1/2 cups crunched up cornflakes and stir. Drop from teaspoon onto waxed paper and form into wreaths. (Dip fingers into warm water as the mixture is quite sticky.) Decorate with red cinnamon candies and silver balls. Cool. When removing from cookie sheet, dip bottom of cookie in powdered sugar. Store in refrigerator. MAUREEN'S SANTA'S WHISKERS Makes 5 dozen 1 cup butter or margarine 1 cup sugar 2 tblsp. milk 1 tsp. vanilla or rum extract 2 1/2 cups flour 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans 3/4 cup flaked coconut Cream butter and sugar. Blend in milk and vanilla. Stir in flour and nuts. Form into 2 rolls, each 2 inches in diameter and 8 inches long. Roll in coconut. Wrap and chill several hours or overnight. Slice 1/4 inch thick. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes, or until golden around edges. Our next recipe is from my dear friend and boss Leslie Bailey. Leslie is a wife and mother of two beautiful girls, lives here in Old Forge, and is the editor of this very newspaper. She swears that these Ginger Snaps are the best you will ever put in your mouth. I especially love them dunked in a little Amaretto for a lovely (adult) holiday dessert. Thanks, Les. LESLIE'S GINGER SNAPS Makes 3-4 dozen cookies 2 cups sifted flour 2 tsp. baking soda 1 tsp. powdered ginger 1 tsp. ground cloves 1 tsp. cinnamon 3/4 cup vegetable shortening 1 cup sugar 1/4 cup molasses 1 egg Additional sugar Sift together first five ingredients and set aside. In a medium bowl, cream shortening until light. Add sugar, molasses and egg, beating well. Gradually add flour mixture, beating until smooth. Dough will be very stiff. Shape into balls and roll in sugar. Bake on greased cookie sheets at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until firm. Cool on wire racks. Last this week is a funny recipe from my old friend Darla, who lives in Phoenix, Arizona. Darla was raised in rural Oklahoma, where her mother still lives, in a town called Corn. Now, it doesn't snow much in Corn, Oklahoma, but whenever it did, Darla and her family would make this "Snow Cream." Heaven knows we have enough of the white stuff around here to make Snow Cream whenever we want to. Enjoy. DARLA'S SNOW CREAM Serves about 4 2 eggs 1 tsp. vanilla 1 cup half and half 1/2 cup sugar. Whip the eggs until pale yellow. Add sugar and milk gradually. Pour mixture over 4 quart pan full of clean snow. Stir only enough to mix ingredients. Happy Eating. Please send all recipes or comments to P.O. Box 111, Old Forge, NY 13420, or e-mail them to lnwillard@hotmail.com. J

ONE OAR SHORT

Perplexing issues

I find myself in a perpetual state of perplexity. The worldwide issues confronting us are so convoluted, they make my eyebrows crinkle. I'm looking for unembellished solutions to byzantine problems. So, I By STAN went out on the street and ERNST asked discerning Express subscribers how they'd resolve their foremost dilemmas. Hi, I'm Kitty Litter from Inlet and my number one issue is affordable health care for all Americans. I don't see why our elected officials can't institute a program like NASCAR's Steve and Rusty Wallace's scam, I mean, USfidelis auto repair insurance. If you listen closely to their TV commercial, there's never any mention that it costs a penny to buy their insurance. If your vehicle breaks down, you simply haul it to your favorite repair shop and get it fixed for nothing. How come Congress can't do this for us poor slobs when our bodies break down? I trust those good ole boys from NASCAR. They shop at Lowe's, guzzle Belgian Budweiser, and snort Viagra. They're great Americans. I want Steve and Rusty to administer our nation's health care program, so we can all take the checkered flag together. Yo, my name's Claire Annette and I subsist in Thendara. My number one headache's illegal immigrants inside the Blue Line. I'm sick and tired of all these refugees from Jersey sneaking into the Adirondacks on immediate relative visas, stealing land from locals, building camps, taking jobs and even living here. Where do they get off? I think we should round them up and send them back to Passaic, or wherever they came from. I'm not even gonna mention those consarned Canadians sneaking across the border on weekends to shop at Wal-Mart. This stuff's gotta stop. I'm texting Glenn Beck. He'll organize a tea partay to rouse the rabble. Hello, I'm Bernie Sensation from Otter Lake. The issue that's bugging me most is excessive governmental spending. Heck, the Town of Webb just adopted a preliminary 2010 budget that totals $6,748,014. I wanna know what that $14's for. It's gotta be pork, because it costs $24 for a cowboy steak at the Seventh Lake House. This TOW budget represents one third of Alex Rodriquez's annual salary for playing a child's game. Why do we have to pay so much to our elected officials and receive such dull entertainment in return? At least I can drink beer for four hours at a baseball game. Spending two hours at a TOW Board of Supervisor's meeting is like being buried up to your neck in wet sand while ants eat your face. If I'm gonna pay my taxes plus 7 percent next year, I want some standup comedy, pepperoni pizza, and adult beverages at Town Board meetings. Oh, and forget that new east side pump station. I want a publicly subsidized baseball stadium atop McCauley Mountain. We'll call it the Parthenon. Hi, my name's Ima Looney from Woodgate, and I've had it with unwinnable wars. I either want us outta Iran and Afghanistan, or I want Congress sent over there as part of the surge to help our courageous fighting men and women carry the day. I'm no longer voting for political hawks whose mommies and daddies helped them stay outta harm's way their entire lives. Heck, most of them never played a contact sport much less served in the military. From now on when somebody's elected to Congress, we should ship them straight to Paris Island for 12 weeks of Marine Corps boot camp. If they drop on request, i.e., DOR, they also flunk outta Congress. To heck with these Monday morning generals in Gucci underwear. Please don't give the Department of Homeland Security my real name, Fanny Squatzengetzit. Hi, I'm Gladys Tuesday from Golden Beach, and I'm sick and tired of the commie pinko socialists' relentless persecution of Sarah Palin. It wasn't her fault Johnny Mac pulled her out of a Wasilla snowdrift and threw her unarmed to the liberal media wolf pack to be ripped apart like William Wallace in London Square. So what if she doesn't know where Tubu is or that the atomic weight of Rhenium is 75. She has the ascendancy to bring down fellow rogue elephants with a dodgy tattle-tale book, only $13.85 at Amazon.com, and put a Democrat in New York's 23rd District, a Republican domain for centuries. And, can she fill out a pair of chesthigh waders. I'm telling you liberal elitists and former McCain campaign aides out there, you'll be sorry when Sarah becomes our queen in 2012. Sarah's got more moxie in her pinky finger than Nancy Pelosi has in her entire upper torso. By jiminy, Sarah's gonna come off her epic book tour and kick Democrat and Republican butt in 2012. A Palin and Beck ticket; are you kidding me? Wink, wink. Yes, my name's Rhoda Boat and I live in Sigourney Weaver's woodshed on Too Long Lake. I'm stressing over President Obama. I think he's doing an adequate job for an alien. At least he learned good English in his native country, Hawaii. I vaguely remember that when he became President, he inherited several inconsequential problems from our previous President, the junior Texas Ranger. Being your average American, I can only remember what my President did for me five minutes ago. A lot of people have lost their jobs and houses and we have two wars going on. Since Mr. Obama calls 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. home, it's his fault. That's the good thing about having a President...we can blame everything we don't like on him. I wonder why anybody wants to be President. I'll bet he wears thumb screws and sleeps on a bed of nails in the White House. Hi, I'm Hank E. Pankie and my mailing address is D-Block, Clinton Correctional Facility. I'm currently AWOL. However, I'm surrendering tomorrow because I just heard on Fox News that 700,000 foreigners are planning to migrate to the U.S. in 2010. Those yahoos ain't gettin' my three hots and a cot. No worries, Express loyalists. My Mayan amigos assure me the world's ending on Dec. 21, 2012. Feliz Navidad. J

By the time you read this, rabbit hunting will have captured the attention of sportsmen all over New York state. The end of deer season signals the beginning of what to thousands of hunters is their favorite season. The By wait is over for the family MART beagle as well. To real dediALLEN cated rabbit hunters, the dog makes the hunt and the beagle is the little dog that was bred to hunt rabbits. I grew up in a hunting household and hunted every species of game available to New York sportsmen. Dogs were a vital part of the sport for just about every type of game with the exception of deer. It is illegal to hunt deer with dogs in New York. To most sportsmen, watching and helping the dog perform is the best part of the hunt. Beagles were particular favorites and provided us with the longest spell of hunting pleasure. Rabbits are the Beagles main interest but many are very partial and adept at hunting pheasants as well. They also make excellent house pets and are considered the all around dog for many households. My son-in-law, Jim Williams, became interested in hunting when he became part of our family. His enthusiasm and interest was peaked when his sons, Forrest and Tecwyn, became interested in the sport as well. After listening to me expound at great length about the various beagles and the great pleasure they had brought me over the years, he became interested in rabbit hunting. He and the boys hunted one season with Paul Ritz and his dog, Katie, and they were hooked. They became sold on the idea of getting a dog of their own. They bought a female beagle in the summer of 2008 and started hunting her that same winter, and she proved to be an outstanding example of her breed. She was the earliest starter I have ever been aware of. Most dogs do not perfect their skills until the second season, but her performance in her first season astonished me. She is a perky little 13 inch bundle of hunting energy with a voice that makes one think she is twice her size. They named her Lillie and she adapted to the family pack of a much larger standard poodle and two over grown wirehaired pointing griffons like a duck takes to water. Only one quarter the size of her

playmates, she is not one bit intimidated by them. Beagles are noted for being the small dogs with big egos. I bought a beagle for our son when he was the grandsons' ages. He was a male and we named him Huckleberry after the famous cartoon character and shortened it to Huck when we were speaking to him. We lived back at Bisby at the time and he provided us with many happy hours pursuing varying hares or, as they are commonly called, snowshoe rabbits. They are much larger than cottontail rabbits and derive their common name from their oversized hind feet. They are well named as the oversized feet act like snowshoes allowing the hare an advantage in outrunning predators. Unlike their cottontail cousins, their coats turn from brown to pure white in the winter hence the name varying hare. They do not use burrows like cottontails and seek shelter under fallen logs and similar objects out of the wind. They are actually much more sporting quarry since they run bigger circles and do not seek escape, like cottontails, into burrows where they are safe from the pursuers. It is not unusual for a snowshoe to lead the hounds on hours and miles long chases. The one venue where the cottontail excels is as table fare. Snowshoes traditionally feed on conifers during the deep snows of winter and the meat takes on the flavor of the conifers. They are one species of game that nearly always has a sporting chance. They stick to dense cover while being chased and have an advantage most of the time over the dogs because of their ability to stay up on top of the light snow. Their undoing is their tendency to run in circles and eventually coming back somewhere near where they are started by the dogs. However, they are usually far ahead of the dog and very alert to any movement on behalf of the hunter. One careless movement and the quarry slips by unnoticed and the hunter never learns until the hound comes through on the track that he has been outwitted. Half of the fun is listening to the dogs as they announce the progress of the chase. The other half is if you can stop the rabbit in his tracks and witness the sheer joy when the dog discovers that he has done his job well. I am sure you will be receiving updates on Lillie's progress as the winter season goes along. It will be interesting to learn if the boys will hold up their end of the partnership as well as she does. J
