Hamilton County Outdoors -- 01/28/2015 Ice fishing is becoming a way of life for some By Dick Nelson

If you think these days of winter temperatures aren't fit for man or beast, you don't know the caliber of ice fishermen. They've been out there taking all the nasty stuff Old Man Winter has to offer full in the face and coming back for more. It's not exactly a parade of fishermen making their way across the frozen expanses, but there are enough out there to make you sit up and take notice. During the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend snowmobiles and bundled-up ice anglers were noticeable on ...

ABOUT THE WEEK OF JAN. 28, 1966, the Girl Scouts would soon be taking orders for cookies. Deliveries would be made in March. A total of 82 percent of the funds realized went toward the Girl Scout camps included in the 3,125 square miles covered by the Foothills Council. Over 12,000 girls benefited. Most of all, the money would go to a resident camp to be built on 624 acres of land in the vicinity of Panther Lake, which was purchased by the Council in 1965. Purchasing Girl Scout cookies not only ...

Hamilton County Outdoors -- 01/21/2015 Ice fishermen ignore the c-c-c-cold By Dick Nelson

You would think any self-respecting angler would spend the winter preparing for the opening of trout season. Well, if you thought that way you thought wrong. Even during the coldest days, when numbing temperatures and winds are strong enough to tear the scales off a walleye, area lakes and ponds are dotted with anglers. Apparently many of those fishermen are as cold-blooded as the fish they're trying to catch. As for me, I no longer have ice running through my veins. Seems I thawed out around th ...

ABOUT THE WEEK OF JAN. 19, 1966, a million American mothers would stage a "protest march" during January. They were protesting that birth defects had been too long neglected. Even more, they were demonstrating their hope of assuring a Happy Birth Day for 11,000 American babies born each day, 700 of whom came into this world with birth defects that disfigured, disabled or killed. During the traditional Mothers March for the March of Dimes, the women would enlist their neighbors' support and contr ...

Remember French Louie

Dear Editor, Adirondack French Louie (Louis Seymour) made the wilderness between Inlet and Lake Pleasant his home from the 1860s until his death in Newton's Corners (now Speculator) Feb. 27, 1915. A famous character throughout Hamilton and Herkimer counties while alive, Louie became a legend after the publication of the book "Adirondack French Louie: Life in the North Woods" in 1952, by Utica author Harvey Dunham. Louie's life exemplified the hard work, determination and humor it took to make a ...

Pass the FairTax

Dear Editor, An internal email to IRS employees was leaked to the press the week of Jan. 11 where a senior IRS official warned that their budget was slashed so deeply that refund checks would be delayed, that less that half of the people calling the IRS would reach a human being, and that there would be more identity theft. I'm sure the IRS's solution would be for the American taxpayer to pay more money to fund their effort to intimidate and harass us, have more people we could call that would g ...
