Now that’s community spirit

Lake Placid News

To the editor:

During the recent storm great many large trees were uprooted adjacent to the nature trails on the Peninsula. They are blocking passage.

One large tree that fell over the trail leading to the Lake Placid dam that was especially troublesome. To continue on the taril, you had to crawl under the trunk of the tree, hanging 3-4 feet above the ground. A task positively, dangerous.

I mentioned this problem to Robert Chabbott, a Lake Placid native. He took his chainsaw and marched with me into the woods. With a few strokes he opened a path on the trail.

Later in the afternoon, I had a chance to observe how this most popular trail to the lake, was back "in business."
