The Way Things Were -- 07/30/2014 By Anne Weaver

ABOUT THE WEEK OF JULY 30, 1965, there was life in Old 790 yet. The old girl was in the Utica yards getting her journal boxes repaired. Some of the young whippersnapper diesels set too fast a pace for the 62-year-old steam engine. While they were hauling 790 somewhere between here and Cedar Rapids, Iowa, the boxes burned out. Luke Wood of Saranac Lake, a ticket agent for New York Central Railroad and a member of the group that had plans for 790's future, hoped the old engine could be fired up an ...

Hamilton County Outdoors -- 07/30/2014 Bad gun law has had some gratifying upshots By Dick Nelson

Ever since the passage of the New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act, Gov. Andrew Cuomo has been bending over backwards trying to gain favor with gun owners and other sportsmen. And while he has taken credit for much more than he deserves -- the most recent being the new state record freshwater drum -- he has signed off on a number of pro-sportsmen issues. Caught by James VanArsdall from Lake Ontario's Irondequoit Bay (Monroe County) June 14, the fish measured 33.5 inches and we ...

Hamilton County Outdoors -- 07/23/2014 Clay pigeons make elusive targets By Dick Nelson

This is generally the time of the year when upland bird and waterfowl hunters begin sharpening up on clay targets at trap, skeet and sporting clay facilities, the latter being more conducive to grouse and pheasant hunting. Originally called "hunter's clays," sporting clays was developed to simulate upland game bird shooting and waterfowl hunting. Clay targets are thrown from traps hidden behind hedgerows, at treetop level, at the waterline or just about any location so targets simulate the fligh ...

ABOUT THE WEEK OF JULY 23, 1965, the Adirondack Museum, open for its eighth season, featured what had been described as one of the world's most interesting collection of small boats. Most of the collection was housed in a new building which contained also an expanded gallery of Adirondack art, including recently acquired works by painters famous a century ago who found inspiration in the mountains, lakes and forests of this region. The time required to complete the new buildings and to classify ...

Grateful for the help

Dear Cris, On behalf of Cathy Ferguson we would like to thank everyone who worked so hard in organizing the benefit for her.

We are all so thankful for the love and gracious donations from our Wells community along with neighboring towns. I want to personally thank the committee members, friends and family who made this benefit happen with monetary gifts, food and esp ...

Help the hardship fund

Dear Editor, The North Country Hardship Fund Inc. was created in 2009 following a tragic motorcycle accident to Wayne Bukovinsky. The outpouring of support from family, friends, and community inspired Wayne to create an organization whose mission was to offer immediate financial assistance to victims of tragedy in the counties we serve. Since 2010 the NCHF has awarded over $100,000 to victims of tragedy. This is no easy task. We rely solely on public donations and fund-raising events throughout ...

Hams can save the day

Dear Editor, The recent spate of bad weather reminds us that while our area has avoided recent large-scale natural disasters anything can happen, and it is best to be prepared. The tornado that touched down recently in Lewis County shows us the potential. We only have to look back about 15 years to see the havoc wreaked by a major ice storm in the St. Lawrence Valley and northwestern corner of the Adirondacks. A slight change in weather conditions and it could have affected large areas of the Ad ...

Getting even worse

Dear Cris, In my opinion it's worse now and getting even worse for our rural lifestyle and worse yet for our deer and moose populations in the Adirondack Park. Deer have not recovered yet from the doe season in the 1960s and I think the moose population that we are supposed to be expanding will be harassed from the new snowmachine trails and will want to find new territory. Unfortunately they don't realize there is no place to go and will be killed crossing the roads and cause car wrecks or wors ...
