Game time

Cold and rain didn't stop a game of soccer when the Long Lake and Johnsburg central schools' elementary soccer teams recently went head-to-head in a fun-filled game. Johnsburg prevailed 6-1, but in elementary sports the emphasis is on learning the game, learning sportsmanship, and having fun.

Hot Screamers softball team finishes off 2014 with a bang

INLET -- Matt's Drafthouse Hot Screamers softball team finished off the 2014 season with a bang. They came out of the gate on fire in the championship game against The Inn On Gore, putting up 10 runs in the top of the first. Every batter hit the ball hard, and the inning was only ended because of the 10-run rule. Kyle Houser and DeDe Ste-Marie both singled and then scored when Beth Williamson crushed a three homer. Heather Levi drew a walk, Meg Kraeger singled, Ashley Fowler smacked a double fol ...

Hot Screamers win again

INLET -- Matt’s Hot Screamers improved its record to 4-0 after a hard fought victory over a scrappy Speculator squad. In the previous week's game at Inlet, the Screamers crushed the team from Raquette Lake with a score of 16-1. Dede Ste-Marie, Beth Williamson, Ashley Fowler and Emily Wilton all had three-hit games. Loren Dykeman pitched another fine game, and the team defense was superb. Heather Levi, Brittany Jackson, Crystal LaPorte, and Kyle Hauser all scored twice and the team combined ...

The Way Things Were -- 11/12/2014 By Anne Weaver

ABOUT THE WEEK OF NOV. 19, 1965, Conservation Department personnel at three check stations and in the field had checked over 1,000 deer during the first three weekends of the Big Game Season in the western Adirondacks. This was just under the total of 1,100 deer checked by the same personnel during the entire 1964 season. A substantial number of yearling deer had been noted by the field technicians, giving evidence of the survival of fawn deer during the mild winter of 1964-65. Department person ...

The Information Age -- 11/19/2014 Radios can communicate digitally By Peter Newell

Ten or more years before most people had even a dial-up Internet connection, amateur radio operators were exchanging text messages (email) and files, and logging in to Packet Radio bulletin board systems totally independent of the fledgling Internet. Even back in the 1960s, they were sending text and pictures using RTTY and SSTV. As personal computers became more powerful, the sophistication of digital data communication programs increased. Nowadays, every computer has a sound card and enough co ...

The Way Things Were By Anne Weaver

Winter is coming and the nights of sitting around a woodstove listening to the wind howl and watching the snow fall are here for the next several months. This is a time when I can sit and read books that are collecting next to my chair. There are many books published that contain a lot of Hamilton County history. The Historical Society of Lake Pleasant and Speculator, with the help of Hamilton County Historian Bill Zullo, has been forming a list of such books to give to natives, summer people an ...

Why not here?

To the editor: A renaissance of steadily growing political clout among even the smallest of senior retirees centers located throughout the nation commenced to materialize in 2013, at the same time that Brand, USA was created by Congress to serve as a not-for-profit advocate dedicated to attracting foreign tourists to America's shores. Since its inception, Brand, USA has been responsible for increasing foreign tourism travelers to America by 1.1 million visitors who contributed $7.4 billion in sp ...

Time to pay the pipers

Dear Editor, With all things, change will occur. For many years, A Pretty Good Band (PGB) and Mountain Arts Consortium (MAC) have been able to raise most of their funding through grants, playbill advertising, and community parades. The remainder of the funding has come through gracious gifts, fundraisers, and donations. We have come to the time in our history where qualifying for grants is no longer a possibility since neither organization holds non-profit status, and major musicals are no longe ...

Read the book

Dear Editor, I just read the article you wrote in the Nov. 12-18 issue of Hamilton County Express on Kunjamuk Cave. I enjoyed it very much and thought you might like to know that there is a book written about it entitled, "The Mystery of Kun-Ja-Muck Cave." George "Pop" Tibbitts, who founded Camp-of-the-Woods, wrote the book back in 1928. When I was on staff at Camp-of-the-Woods in the 1930s I, along with many others, purchased it... and now treasure it. I don't know if there is a copy in our pub ...

Don't make bad choices

Dear Editor, The festivities of the holiday season will soon be upon us. It is my hope that everyone will experience a joyful holiday season. Unfortunately, some will not easily find joy this season due to those unavoidable issues or other preventable problems that can turn a good time into chaos and even grief. One of those preventable problems is driving while under the influence of a debilitating substance such as a drug and/or alcohol. According to the 2012 statistics from the National Highw ...
