Hamilton County Outdoors -- 04/16/2014 Big game hunters bear down as harvest tops 1,350 By Dick Nelson

New York bear hunters took 1,358 black bears during the 2013 hunting seasons, making last year’s kill the second highest on record. Most of those bruins were pulled out of the Southeastern Range as hunters took a record 636, up from the 442 taken in 2012. Had the Adirondack Region harvest been anywhere near the 2003 record kill of 1,370 it would have established a new state record. But with only 84 bears taken during the early season (15 during bow hunting season, 35 during muzzleloader se ...

This View of The Adirondacks -- 04/16/2014 By Jack Leadley Sr.

Sampson Bog Part II A young French-Canadian named Louis Seymour came down from Canada and discovered in the West Canada Lakes area the best of the Adirondacks. "French Louie," as he was called, stayed at West Lake over 50 years. The woods and waters there, abundant with fish and game, made living there possible. Potatoes in his vegetable garden were an important supplement to his fare. Louie kept boats on many of the nearby lakes. My 1903 topographical maps show foot trails from lake to lake go ...

Hamilton County Outdoors -- 04/09/2014 Trout fishermen shun trout opener, but thousands attend rally By Dick Nelson

Anyone who missed the April 1 opener of New York's trout fishing season didn't miss much. No matter where you went, chances were the water was high, fast, cold and muddy -- four conditions that cause terrible trout fishing. The only thing the opener had going for it was the weather, inasmuch as the sun was shining and there was relatively little wind. Trout fishers were well aware of conditions before they left home, and those that looked at the thermometer had the good sense to wait until mid-a ...

A very important decision

Dear Editor, The Long Lake Central School District Board of Education has a very important decision to make: whether to extend the contract of the superintendent. I have expressed my concerns about the way the BOE is going about this, and I write now with even greater concerns. It is the board's seeming refusal to hear people out, to not gather as much information as possible to make this important decision, that really concerns me. The past five years of superintendent evaluations have been shr ...

Just the tip of the iceberg

Dear Cris, Are you wondering, like me, why your electric bills have doubled or tripled in the last few months and no one seems to know why? We're being told the reason for the skyrocketing prices is the unusually cold winter, resulting in natural gas price increases. Are we naively waiting for the price to go back down as soon as it warms up? According to an article by Steven H. Ahle of Columbia Public Policy Examiner, "In May 2012, the U.S. Energy Information Administration released a report [Annual Energy Outlook 2012] s ...

Southworth for NYS Senate

Dear Editor, A little more than six years ago, I walked away from a well-paying job as a supervising pharmacist and entered the world of public service. I was elected supervisor in the Town of Ballston, becoming the town "CEO" and its representative at the Saratoga County Board of Supervisors. Immediately, I plunged in headlong, attending seminars and training sessions, immersing myself in the arcane language and decades-old rules and regulations. While campaigning, I walked from one end of my t ...
