June 1st, 2012 · No Comments · Adirondack News

NYSDEC LogoOn May 26, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation’s (DEC) Division of Law Enforcement charged Raymond R. Muncil, 18, of Saranac Lake with boating while intoxicated (misdemeanor) and operating a vessel at a speed not reasonable and prudent (a violation under the New York State Navigation Law).

“Boaters operating a vessel while ability impaired by drugs or alcohol is a serious offense,” said Captain Lawrence DiDonato of DEC’s Ray Brook Office. “In addition to being subject to arrest, fines and imprisonment, the safety of all who enjoy New York’s waters is jeopardized when vessels are operated by intoxicated individuals.”

DEC Environmental Conservation Officers responded to a boat accident on the Saranac River Channel near the Lower Lock where Mr. Muncil was found to be intoxicated. He was taken to the New York State Police Barrack at Ray Brook for processing and was issued a ticket to appear in Harrietstown Town Court. Muncil faces maximum possible penalties of $2,100 in fines and up to 1 year in jail.

February 6th, 2012 · No Comments · Adirondack News

SARANAC LAKE, NY – The Saranac Lake Rotary Club will present its annual Winter Carnival Rotary Show at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 10 at the Harrietstown Town Hall.

Saranac Lake Winter CarnivalThe Sons of Sound — students from the Saranac Lake High School — will provide pre-show entertainment. Steve Borst and Sue Grimm will provide music, and there will be dance routines by the pages and court members. There will be performances by the Saranac Lake High School Vocal Ensembles, directed by Drew Benware and accompanied by Tom Delahant; a barbershop quartet called the Meter Maids; Crackin’ Foxy; the High Peaks Juggler, Eric Geoffrey-Belcher; and finally, the Rotary Show Dancers, celebrating the 83rd anniversary of dancing for Saranac Lake.

“We look forward to the opportunity to showcase some really good talent,” said Rotary Show organizer Mary Brown.

The Winter Carnival royal party will participate in the festivities. They are the king (Tim Fortune) and queen (Kelly Morgan), grand marshal (Ron Keough), archbishop (Jason Wamsganz ), chamberlain (Josh Marlow), princess (Breonna Seifried), prince (Rand Jasung Snyder), pages (Helena Dramm, Gwendalyn Mader, Chloe Reardan, Tucker Jacobe, Wyatt Martin and Forrest Monroe), royal spokespersons (Nickie Trudeau and Jack Rockefeller), and the High School Court ladies (Jazzmyn Tuthill, Hope Laramee, Irma Cecunjanin, Mackenzie Cotter, Gabi Bevilacqua, Marisa Farmer and Gabby Lewis) and gentlemen (Sam Annis, Ricky Schmidt, Ethan Barge, Max Calderone, Lukas Atkinson, Brady DeAngelo and Jamaal Tuthill).

Last year, the Winter Carnival Rotary Show raised about $5,000 to help with their local charities. The show is a major fundraiser for the Saranac Lake Rotary Club, which gives back to the community through scholarships and helping with projects such as the local skateboard park, Dewey Mountain, continuing improvements to public facilities at the Harrietstown Town Hall, Lift Mount Pisgah, the Community Lunchbox and the Adirondack Carousel.

“The money people pay for tickets all comes back to the community in support of local organizations,” Brown said. “To me, that’s what gives the show meaning.”

Tickets are $13 in advance and $20 at the door. After Feb. 7, the tickets will only be available at the Saranac Lake Area Chamber of Commerce.
