Hamilton County Outdoors -- 04/08/2015 Turkey hunters should do some pre-season scouting By Dick Nelson

New York’s spring turkey hunting season opens in just over a week, but from the way the birds have been behaving I suspect a lot of the hens will have already been bred by the time it does. Not that that’s such a bad thing; the fewer ladies a romantic tom has to cuddle up to the more he is apt to respond to a hunter’s call, at least during the early part of the season. As it is, the season runs from May 1-31, with the special Youth Turkey Hunting Weekend scheduled for April 25- ...

The Information Age Picking a web browser By Peter Newell

Microsoft labels the icon for Internet Explorer as "The Internet" in some versions of Windows. This is misleading at best. First, the Internet is much more than the "World Wide Web" of pages you view by accessing a web server using http (hyper text transport protocol). There are many other services and protocols. The most obvious example is email (using smtp, the simple mail transport protocol.) Second, Internet Explorer is only one of many web browsers. It is integrated into Windows so it is th ...

Hamilton County Outdoors -- 04/08/2015 Melting ice not good for fish or fishermen By Dick Nelson

The DEC recently announced that the extended period of ice blanketed by deep snow is likely to result in fish die-offs in numerous area ponds. As winter ice begins to melt away the agency starts receiving calls from concerned anglers and pond owners, reporting large numbers of dead fish. According to the announcement, “Winter die-off of fish is caused by oxygen depletion in the water through the winter. Ice that accumulates on ponds or lakes prevents wind action from adding oxygen to the w ...

Hotel must be rejected

Dear Editor, Hi folks! Well, I'm baaack! Sorry to keep my fans waiting. All three of you! My focus today is the proposal to build an 80-room hotel on the Lake Pleasant Lodge parcel, formerly Gables Motel, based on my experience with planning and zoning starting in 1957. Part of the time I was Speculator's land use code enforcement officer. At the beginning of zoning I was involved with the creation of the land use code and the joint Village of Speculator / Town of Lake Pleasant Master Plan adopt ...

Speculator needs hotel

Speculator needs hotel Dear Editor, Today our community is debating the merits of a proposed new lodging project despite the fact that for years we have experienced a steady decline in available tourist and guest accommodations. We are debating it despite the fact that much of the history and character of this area was forged by a multi-seasonal influx of visitors drawn by our extraordinary natural resources and the many hotels, lodges and cottage colonies available to them for extended stays. W ...

Ad campaign is good

To the editor, Is anyone else disturbed by the Tips From a Former Smoker ads on TV? The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) just announced a new campaign that started March 30. I’ve seen one new ad so far, ‘Julia’s Story.’ Julia smoked for more than 20 years before developing colon cancer at age 49. Her “tip” is to have a strong stomach. She explains that if you get colon cancer and have to have your colon removed, you will need to have an ostomy bag taped to yo ...

Take the tests

Dear Editor, I am writing in light of the current political scene revolving around the New York state standardized tests. There is a pull from Governor Cuomo to strengthen the weight of NYS tests against teacher evaluation scores, and a pull for the New York State United Teachers union to encourage parents to have their children refuse to take the tests. This is called an "opt out movement." "Opting out" affects Lake Pleasant Central School, as well as our children. New York state does not ackno ...
