INLET -- Matt's Drafthouse Hot Screamers softball team finished off the 2014 season with a bang. They came out of the gate on fire in the championship game against The Inn On Gore, putting up 10 runs in the top of the first. Every batter hit the ball hard, and the inning was only ended because of the 10-run rule. Kyle Houser and DeDe Ste-Marie both singled and then scored when Beth Williamson crushed a three homer. Heather Levi drew a walk, Meg Kraeger singled, Ashley Fowler smacked a double fol ...

Hot Screamers win again

INLET -- Matt’s Hot Screamers improved its record to 4-0 after a hard fought victory over a scrappy Speculator squad. In the previous week's game at Inlet, the Screamers crushed the team from Raquette Lake with a score of 16-1. Dede Ste-Marie, Beth Williamson, Ashley Fowler and Emily Wilton all had three-hit games. Loren Dykeman pitched another fine game, and the team defense was superb. Heather Levi, Brittany Jackson, Crystal LaPorte, and Kyle Hauser all scored twice and the team combined ...

Hamilton County Outdoors -- 10/22/2014 The guns of autumn are going full blast By Dick Nelson

If the sound of gunfire over the Columbus Day Weekend frightened you into thinking ISIS was invading, rest assured that wasn't the case. What you were hearing was the thunderous sound of rifles and shotguns fired by junior and waterfowl hunters zeroing in on deer and ducks as both the first portion of the 2014-15 Southeastern Zone waterfowl hunting season and the third annual Youth Deer Hunting Weekend got underway. According to DEC Director of Media Relations Tom Mailey, junior hunters harveste ...

The Way Things Were -- 10/22/2014 By Anne Weaver

ABOUT THE WEEK OF OCT. 22, 1965, the big game hunting season was expected to draw hunters from all over the state when it opened in the Northern Zone.

The big game gunning season would open in the Northern Zone Nov. 15 and continue until Dec. 7. The 1965 opening day influx was not expected to equal that of 1964, partially be ...

The Information Age In an emergency it's good to be a ham By Peter Newell

The Simulated Emergency Test (SET) is a radio communications exercise held every October by members of the Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES). The SET is a national event, but the detailed scenario and plan for each ARES group is developed at the local level. I am the ARES emergency coordinator for the Northern New York section. The section encompasses all the northern counties from Jefferson to the eastern border of the state as well as most of the Adirondack counties down to the Mohawk Val ...

Support was amazing

Dear Cris, The Fourth of July Parade Committee wishes to extend thanks to everyone who made our fundraiser at the Historical Society of Lake Pleasant & Speculator's Apple Fest a success. This was our second year at the Apple Fest and it was a huge success; we couldn't be more pleased with the outcome. From the apple crisp to the apple pies and everything in between, every item was sold out. To all our customers and those who promoted the event, designed posters, baked for the cause, set up, ...

The decent thing to do

To the editor, As president of the Indian Lake Board of Education, it will come as no surprise to anyone that I'm deeply troubled by the Sept. 12 report in the Watertown Daily Times that caused our superintendent, Mark Brand, to become labeled "the school superintendent who doesn't pay his school taxes." In trying to understand this story, I kept asking myself questions like why Jefferson County hadn't foreclosed on the property after so many years of nonpayment of taxes. If I fell into arrears, ...

Reader is outraged

Dear Ms. Meixner, I just read the article, "Brand accused of failing to pay property taxes," in the Sept. 17 Hamilton County Express. How can a corporation "dissolve" without selling all its property? Doesn't NYS require all assets be sold or given away prior to dissolution? I found the following on the NY Department of State Division of Licensing Services website: "Generally, Article 12-A of the Real Property Law provides that anyone who, on behalf of another and for a fee, 1) negotiates a sale ...

It's a new America

Dear Cris, Since character, leadership, and accomplishments are just so over as voting criteria for so many Americans who choose instead to be influenced by things like skin pigmentation and gender, I would like to announce a new initiative. How about we dig even further into the random whirlpool of genetic flukes and band together now to elect the first flat-footed - Sagittarius - balding - midget to the presidency? Oh, I know, it sounds impossible but Yes We Can! It's time, my fellow Americans ...
