Donate your car, help out a family

North Country Ministry is now accepting vehicles from area citizens - a donation which can provide immense help to a needy family while yielding a significant tax deduction, agency officials said this week.

"Transportation is a basic necessity of life - whether it's to shop for groceries, go to the doctor, obtain a job or get to work - and there's no public transportation in northern Warren County," said Brother James Posluszny said Monday.

North Country Ministry, based in North Creek and Warrensburg, will accept vehicles, then have minor repairs performed as needed to make them roadworthy, then give them to families in need of transportation to make them self-sufficient.

Through such a gift, the donor then avoids the hassles of advertising a vehicle for sale, negotiating its sale and bearing responsibility for the transfer.

Those with vehicles to donate, contact Joe Klewicki of Warrensburg at: 623-4939

Talks continue on joint WCS-Bolton sports

Warrensburg Central School board met Jan. 24, and the feasibility of combining the high school's sports with Bolton High School was discussed.

Early last week, the top officials of both schools met and talked about the possibility of merging particular sports teams, WCS Superintendent of Schools Tim Lawson said.

Lawson reported that the Bolton School Board will be discussing this option at a meeting set for Feb. 14.

Many things would need to need to be ironed out, Lawson said, such as what teams would merge, where practice s and competitions would be held, what the teams would be named, and the color and design of the uniforms, and more.

Both boards of education will need to have much more discussion, Lawson said, and the Adirondack Journal will be reporting the findings in upcoming editions.
