Both were remembered for their dedication to their communities and service in political office, expecially by current North Elba Supervisor Roby Politi, who worked with Clark and battled cancer alongside Morency.
Old Military detour
Residents and visitors dealt with a major detour through the village of Lake Placid during the busiest months of the summer tourist season as highway crews took steps to try to ease the congestion of traffic, particularly on Saranac Avenue.
With part of the Old Military Road shut down for repaving through October, a detour through the village caused traffic headaches. The detour took drivers along Mill Pond Drive — starting at State Route 73 at the bottom of Mill Hill at the location of the former Downhill Grill — and Wesvalley Road all the way to Saranac Avenue — at the corner near McDonald’s.
The detour, which was supposed to last through Oct. 1, was extended into the latter part of the month in order to complete more work.
