Mettle to the pedal

About 40 mountain bikers took advantage of Rider Appreciation Weekend Oct. 3-4 at Oak Mountain in Speculator, riding the chairlift up and their bicycles down the mountain. The free day of fun was Oak's way of thanking mountain bikers for their patronage. A lot of them came from Syracuse, Rochester and Albany, Oak Manager Matt O'Brien said, and some camped out overnight. The high point of the day -- no pun intended -- was a race at noon.

Hamilton County Outdoors -- 11/19/2015 Southern Tier hunters will soon be gunning for deer By Dick Nelson

New York’s deer hunting season opens across the Southern Tier Nov. 21, and while deer hunters are hoping it will be cold and snowy you can bet the deer are praying for rain and warm temperatures. From all appearances it looks as though weather conditions will favor the deer, as they have in the Northern Tier where the regular season opened Oct. 24. The long-range forecast is calling for temperatures in the high 50s on opening weekend with a 20 percent chance of rain. So what else is new? O ...

Hamilton County Outdoors -- 11/12/2015 Buck deer are starting to get randy By Dick Nelson

There is a standing argument among deer hunting experts on just how much affect the autumn equinox has on a white-tailed deer’s romantic behavior. Some believe it’s the phase of the moon that controls the activity, while others say the moon has nothing to with it, it’s just a natural biological pattern determined by hormones. Whatever it is, reports coming in from area bowhunters indicate buck deer are getting deeper into what is commonly referred to as the “pre-rut.&rdqu ...

Memories of Long Lake

Dear Editor, The leaves were particularly brilliant in 1992 following a rainy summer. I was overwhelmed by the color; the area looked so different as compared to how green everything is in summer — and don't forget the smell of pine in the air. You might think Long Lake is off the beaten path and not one of the Adirondacks' most popular summer resorts. However, it does offer one major attraction: a scenic seaplane ride that is hard to resist. People intending to drive through stop and watc ...

President is delusional

Dear Editor, Just in case the Obama voters out there still – after seven years – need some clarification of the great victory they scored by electing the Magic Community Organizer, let us turn to the DSM 5: that’s the Diagnostic and Statistical Manuel of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition. We find there clear evidence that Obama voters made a tremendous breakthrough for American mental health by electing the first certifiably mentally ill bi-racial POTUS. Now there’s some hi ...

Event was heartwarming

Dear Cris, We were privileged to attend Lake Pleasant Central School's breakfast and ceremony Nov. 10 honoring our country's veterans.

Everyone got on board

Dear Cris, I have had many concerned people asking about the newly placed guard rails that were blocking some of our trails near Mason Lake parking lot and Perkins Clearing. After getting many different agencies (NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, NYS Department of Transportation in Utica, DOT Indian Lake, Adirondack Park Agency and several others) together they removed several 100 feet of guard rail and moved two other sections on either end of the Mason Lake parking lot. I would lik ...
