This Week’s Our Town News: October 18, 2018

A Newsletter for members of the Fourth Lake Community and Friends


Jerry Lynch

Our good friend, the wonderful Jerry, is no longer doing lawn maintenance.  He will still be available for other non- lawn work.  Jerry has been scaling back his work load for some time.  He’s always been a staple of the Fourth Lake community and is entitled to semi-retire, but we will miss him.

 Reminder…State Senator Betty Little will be in Lake Luzerne tonight!


Good News! 9N Paving:

Motorists are advised to watch for road work on two separate segments of state Route 9N that are undergoing paving projects by the state Department of Transportation.  Paving is underway on an approximately 4.1-mile stretch of Route 9N from Exit 21 of the Northway to Gage Hill Road.  Watch for alternating single lanes of traffic controlled by flaggers during daytime hours through the week of Oct. 22.  An approximately 15-mile segment in Bolton and Hague is also being worked on.

Local Eateries:

According to a news release, Birch Bark Eatery, an all-vegan eatery, opened on Oct. 1.  The restaurant is located at 989 Route 9, which is near the Glen Drive-In and in the same building as the Knights of Columbus.  One of the signature items is the Reuben, which uses seitan, a vegan meat-free alternative made with wheat gluten. Other menu items include fried pickles with ranch dressing, tempura broccoli with garlic aioli, classic French onion soup, Cran-Faux-Turkey, barbecue jackfruit and other sandwiches. There is also a stuffed burger filled with chorizo garlic and a build-your-own burger option.

Fire Prevention:

Fall means the heating season has arrived, and with the use of wood stoves, furnaces, fireplaces and other heaters comes a higher risk of fires.  Annual inspections of heating sources are among the tips that local experts offer when gearing up for “Fire Prevention Week” each October.  In a typical home fire, you may have as little as one to two minutes to escape safely from the time the smoke alarm sounds. Knowing how to use that time wisely takes planning and practice.  This year’s “Look, Listen, Learn” campaign highlights three steps people can take to quickly and safely escape a fire:

  • Look for places fire could start.
  • Listen for the sound of the smoke alarm.
  • Learn two ways out of every room.
