Life in the woods: All things small and great by Jack Leadley Jr.

One of the great blessings of my life — and they are legion — is escaping to the woods. I have a tiny cabin called Sandringham in the greater Speculator area. No water, off the grid. With a drive that’s short enough to be practical but long enough to leave me isolated in wild forest, I can return to the 19th century. As I write this, I’m sitting in a comfy camp chair on my porch. The bed, woodstove and a few basics are inside the single room, which has ample windows on al ...

New Airbow impressive; can fire eight arrows at once

By ED NOONAN For The Express  In 2010 NYS legalized hunting with an airgun that uses spring or compressed air (not gunpowder) to propel a single projectile that is .17 caliber or larger, has a muzzle velocity of at least 600 feet per second and a smooth or rifled bore. This was followed with NYS “finally” passing a crossbow hunting season; which by the way is still considerably shorter than the regular bow hunting season. Well now there is something new that launches an arrow - ...

Solving a common complaint: My computer is slow…

By PETE NEWELL For The Express   This is a complaint I hear all the time.  It is also a reason people throw out perfectly good computers and spend big bucks on a new one. Computer hardware does not slow down over time. It is not like the motor in your car, which produces less horsepower as the mechanical components wear out. Typically, the electronic components in your computer either work or they don’t. When they fail, they usually either fail completely or they develop faults t ...

Letters to the Editor - 08/25/2016

Maintaining tradition at Charlie John’s store Dear Editor,  I’ve shopped at Charlie John’s store each time I visit Speculator over a 60 year period and it’s been a pleasure seeing a smiling Charlie behind the meat counter or Dean Lane busy around the store.  On a recent visit I mistakenly left my wallet at the checkout while chatting with the clerk and didn’t realize it until I returned to my local camp. I immediately returned to the store knowing that my ...

Letters to the Editor - 08/18/2016

Clarification for help needed To the Editor, In regard the “Volunteers Sought” letter I need to correct an item. In helping my friend Jean get the letter sent to your readers I failed to make clear the most important point, that the Wells Volunteer Ambulance Corps are in need of counters for their bottle collection. This is the cleanest job.  Again, counters is where we have the greatest need. My apologies for not making clear the original intent of Jeans letter. Steve Stofel ...

Will Rootin-Tootin Vladimir Putin win White House?By JACK LEADLEY JR.

Every four years, after the Republican and Democratic national conventions, I predict how each state will vote in the November presidential election. Below is how I called each state in a public Facebook post on July 30. This is a year unlike any other I’ve seen, and I’ve been following this stuff since 1960. I don’t recall the country being this polarized since late in the Vietnam war.  I feel very strongly that this election is the most crucial of my life. I know people ...
