LAKE PLACID - In this week's Lake Placid News, we celebrate agriculture in Essex County with our quarterly Savor the Season series.

For the fall season - which began on Monday, Sept. 23 - Staff Writer Elizabeth Izzo gives us three agriculture stories. She stopped by the Reber Rock Farm in Essex, Moonstone Farm in Saranac Lake and spoke with a traveling macaron maker who stopped in Keene Valley and used local ingredients for her products.

News ad rep Carol Swirsky also celebrates the apple and potato harvest with two family recipes.

Editor Andy Flynn visited the Lake Placid Middle/High School on Monday, Sept. 16 and covered a presentation by Mary Miller of the New York Newspaper Publishers Association. She talked to students in grades 7 to 9 about how to distinguish between real news and fake news with her program, "News Media Literacy: Seeking and Finding the Truth in a Fake News World."

We also have a report on the climate rally that was held in Saranac Lake on Friday, Sept. 20, which students from around the region attended, including some from Lake Placid and Keene Central.

In addition to columns from Naj Wikoff (On the Scene) and Martha Allen (Martha Sez), we have an update from Annoel Krider, who writes the column called Our Animals, Ourselves and recently visited the Crane Mountain Valley Horse Rescue Farm in Westport.



Kaillie Humphries, one of Canada's all-time greatest bobsledders, is petitioning for a spot on the United States team. Lake Placid News sports writer Lou Reuter caught up with Humphries during the push championships in Lake Placid to hear her side of the story.

Lou also talked to a few other sledders during the push championships, including Elana Meyers Taylor, who is sitting this season out in order to have a child.

Staying on the track, this week's sports pages also bring readers up to date on the US Luge team, which is set to kick off its ice training Oct. 2 in Norway.

In other sports news this week, several area skiers took part in the two-day rollerski tour that came to the Lake Placid area for races at Whiteface Mountain and the Olympic Jumping Complex.



The season officially turned to autumn last week, and the Lake Placid News outdoors team hasn't missed a beat. Outdoors writer Justin Levine woke up at the crack of dawn to go for a hike up Owls Head Mountain in Long Lake, while columnist Spencer Morrissey went for a short kayaking adventure on Cascade Lake.
