Gary Lee’s column last week contained a passage that was incomplete. Following is the passage in its entirety.
—The bass fishermen in the Hamilton County Federation of Sportsmen’s Clubs tournament today (6/28) on the lower Fulton Chain reported seeing a pair of loons with a chick on First Lake. Some said the loons were doing better than they were.
Local Trevor Tormey and his partner Joe VanValkenburg took the lunker prize with a largemouth bass that weighed in at 5.69 pounds. They also won for the total top weight of five fish at 14.77 pounds.
Kalyn Olney’s name was mispelled in last week’s Town of Webb School Senior Spotlight. Her parents run Woodshed Crafts, her father being retired from Frontier Communications.
I wish to correct an error in the meeting notice for The Friends of the Old Forge Library, Inc.
The location should have read “the Judith Lowenstein Cohen Memorial wing of the Old Forge Library.”
The Cohen home was built by Moses A. Cohen and later donated to the library by A. Richard and Judith Cohen, and the family was instrumental in the construction of the addition that bears his Judith’s name.
We are sorry for the confusion and any distress to the family of Muriel Cohen.
My apologies for the error.
In last week’s article about Michelle LaDue and Whitney Denesha’s relief mission to Haiti, it should have been mentioned that, in addition to her other academic and professional achievements, Whitney teaches workshops at Old Forge Ballet Co., where she serves on the Board of Directors. She is the daughter of David and Sue Ann Wallace of Old Forge.
In the report of Town of Webb board activity that appeared on Page 20 of last week’s Weekly Adirondack, paragraph 17 should have indicated that Council-woman Russell was in agreement with citizen Trimbach, that the current bridge situation on Route 28 is not ideal with regard to concurrent use by automobiles, snowmobiles and pedestrians.
Richard Paul Ell’s name apeared incorrectly in an obituary of page 7 in the November 21 issue of The Weekly Adirondack. Our apologies for this mistake.
In last week’s story on the 29th Annual Canoe Classic, the overall winners in the Open Touring Class were listed incorrectly.
The overall Open Tour winners were Joanne Maly, Jim Williams, Rich Nelson, and Brian Schoen.
The paddlers’ time on day one was 6:14:00; on day two, 4:48:53; and on day three, 3:20:05 for a three-day total of 14:22:58.
