Essex County IDA offers PILOT program
Fourth Streetfest promises to be better than ever.
By Keith Lobdell email@example.com ELIZABETHTOWN — The Adirondack Meat Company proposed for Ticonderoga may be free from property taxes for two years under a Payment In Lieu of Taxes (PILOT) program offered by the Essex County Industrial Development Agency (IDA). Members of the Economic Development, Planning and Publicity Committee passed a resolution July 9 on to the Ways and Means Committee authorizing the PILOT agreement between the IDA and proposed slaughterhouse, the first of its kind in the Adirondack Park. “I think the proposed incentives on the PILOT alone are considerable for a small manufacturing business based on what they have proposed,” Jody Olcott of the IDA said. “We felt that the need to reduce overhead expenses for the first couple of years was considerable to make sure that they could get out there and get established.”

Fire chief retires after six decades of service
at risk when the arsonist drove over fire hoses. Jaquish said firefighting has changed tremendously in the nearly six decades he has volunteered. “Nobody can imagine, unless you were there,” Jaquish said. He recalled his first fire call, with no phones in the truck, and said responders sometimes found themselves miles from the nearest
Jaquish recounts changes emergency responders have seen over the years By Katherine Clark firstname.lastname@example.org MORIAH — After 58 years of being ready at a moment’s notice, laying out clothes before bed for a quick exit to an emergency, Moriah Volunteer Fire Department chief will be retiring.
Ralph Jaquish, now 81, has been a member of the Moriah department for 58 years and served as chief for 53. Recently recognized as the longest continually serving fire chief in the state of New York, Jaquish said he felt his career has gone out with a bang. “When we arrived at my last big fire in Moriah Center, the fire was
blazing 30 feet through the roof and within seconds, it felt like, (the fire) was through the east wall of the building,” Jaquish said. Jaquish said his last year as chief has been a very “interesting” time. The year was capped with the Moriah Center fire and an arson fire at the Mountain Lake Services building that put emergency responders

Times of Ti Editorial
Make the time for your neighbor in need
ne of the biggest issues facing organizations primarily run by volunteer groups throughout the Adirondacks is that people just can’t find the time to volunteer. Between jobs and other family responsibilities, many people don’t think there is any time leftover to commit to volunteering. Yet, what your time can do for others has tremendous value. It makes business sense for organizations to sign up volunteers. A 2010 Volunteering in America study estimated that an hour of volunteering was worth $26. And volunteer firefighters save localities about $129.7 billion every year in the U.S. Firemen’s Association of the State of New York President David Jacobowitz said that statewide studies have shown that if all volunteer fire protective services were funded by taxpayers, it would add about $2.8 billion in labor costs and $4.4 billion in equipment, structural changes, fire vehicle value, and general operational costs per year. Not-for-profit groups are faced with the realities of relying on volunteers for their survival. In the end, if enough volunteers cannot be found, some smaller groups — such as local museums — may have to cut hours or even close. Fire departments are faced with similar challenges. In 2011, for example, the Blue Mountain Lake Volunteer Fire Department was faced with closure due to the decline in volunteers. With the help of the community, which overwhelmingly wanted the fire department to stay active, new members joined and the fire department was saved. Many local fire and rescue departments have dramatically smaller squads than when the current senior members began. According to a report by the National Volunteer Fire Council, the number of volunteer firefighters has dropped 14 percent since 1984. While the number of new volunteers is going down, the age of current volunteers is increasing and the volume of emergency calls remain the same. A majority of the agencies in need of volunteers rely on retirees, many of whom bring a variety of talents from their years in the workforce. Yet, with vacations, “company” and other obligations, volun-
teers are not always a reliable option to replace paid workers. Therefore, more volunteers are always needed to fill in when others can’t make a shift because they are not available. We encourage everyone — retirees, those in the workforce and teenagers — to volunteer, even if it’s only a few hours a week. By helping the local animal shelter, food bank or other small organization, you are helping your neighbors in need. There’s always a little time to help. Only 18.5 percent of New Yorkers volunteered in 2010 compared to the national average of 26.6 percent. According to Kathleen Snow, development director of North Country Regional Volunteer Center, New York state ranked dead last — 50 out of the 50 states — for active volunteerism. During a time of crisis, those in the Adirondacks have proven when there is an imminent need, such as the disaster left in the wake of Tropical Storm Irene, they can accomplish great things. Snow said many people called into the office to find out how they could help and have continued to help through the Long Term Recovery group created to continue to help after FEMA left the area. The group includes members of the Mental Health Association, the Salvation Army and Project Hope. Floodwaters or not, the need for your time and effort in the community is ever present. For more information on how you can help the people in your community, call the United Way volunteer help line at 211 or visit one of your local organizations — fire departments, hospitals, libraries, chambers of commerce, museums, social groups, etc. By volunteering, you are giving back, and your time is greatly appreciated.

Jobs hang in the balance
ast week the Labor Department released its June report and the numbers were well below expectations. It was the third-consecutive month of weak job growth. From April through June, the economy produced an average of just 75,000 jobs a month, the weakest quarter since July through September 2010. The unemployment rate stayed at 8.2 percent. Both parties and politicians at every level benchmark their performance based on job creation and a low unemployment rate, even though many who hold and run for office have never truly created a job or been responsible for employing a person with their own money. Speaking from experience, I can tell you it’s a heavy weight on one’s shoulders. Making certain there is enough money in the bank to pay the person hired, cover all the taxes and benefits and dealing with a never ending list of government regulations and reporting is a heavy burden. When things don’t go as planned there is no spinning of the facts or passing blame to anyone other than the employer and employee. As a small business owner, job creation is a very personal thing and no serious employer takes the task lightly, especially when it’s your money being spent and your money on the line for the performance of the tasks assigned to a person. Most small business owners I know feel exactly the same way. I can personally attest that many sleepless nights go by making hiring or firing decisions, dealing with disciplinary issues, benefit plans, work assignments, injuries and generating enough revenue to keep the lights on and the staff working. That said, when I hear politicians and bureaucrats taking credit for creating x-number of jobs and putting people to work, I have to wonder if they really have any idea how the process truly works and that each hire or dismissal is so much more that just a statistic from which to campaign. It’s a life and that one life has dependents and responsibilities of their own that they likely lose sleep over. The whole process of being a small business owner or working for a small business gets brought up frequently in political campaigns and with the state of the economy in its current condition, we’ll be hearing a lot about the economy and jobs in the coming weeks and months.
We’re told that the Labor Department report left economists and investors grasping for any Dan Alexander good news. They Thoughts from found some in Behind the Pressline the fact that the average hourly pay rose 6 cents in June, the biggest monthly gain in nearly a year. The average work week also grew, and companies hired 25,000 temporary workers, usually a sign that they will eventually move to full-time workers, but it’s no guarantee. Economists and investors appear to be living off the sweat and stress of those of us who have true skin in the game. Like a gambler down on his luck, until solid consumer confidence returns, small business employers must continue to risk with every hire that they can maintain sufficient stability in their business to keep pressing forward with little to gain or even go deep into debt hoping for their luck to turn around. Small businesses and their employees represent nearly 60 percent of the US workforce. In the upcoming election cycle politicians will spend billions talking about jobs and the economy. They’ll debate insourcing and outsourcing and who is best suited to create the most jobs and generate the strongest economy. They’ll take credit for everything positive and accept no blame for anything that went wrong and all the while small business employers and the fate of millions of employees will rest on the outcome of the elections, until confidence, cooperation and rock solid belief in the future of the US economy returns to prior form. Each night as the politicians go to bed, they and their advisors will think of new strategies to gain more votes and overcome gaffs made on the stump. Their goal will be to put the best spin on what is or isn’t happening with the US economy. Meanwhile small business owners and their employees will continue to lose sleep worrying about that next payroll, praying sales improve and that the outcome of the elections will in fact have a positive impact on the country’s economy.

It doesn’t take thousands of dollars to land a fish
Reader disagrees with opinion Vaudeville successful of Times of Ti publisher To the Times of Ti:
To the Times of Ti: I disagree with Hammond on fishing tournaments. Dear Howard, you will have a hard time convincing me that big bass boys are anything but overgrown children out tearing up our lakes with over powered boats and sophisticated fishing gear. Since when does it take 100 thousand dollars worth of fishing gear to out wit a fish. Don’t need flashy pant suits, hundred dollar glasses, expensive deck shoes, or tons of lures. What happened to blending into nature to harvest it? The same result could be had using a dingy, baggy jeans, a bamboo pole, and a bobber with a real worm. Too bad we have to share our lakes and docks with out of staters, with glitzy mega boats, whose only concern is winnig big bucks. Ive been pushed out of the ramp, almost capsized by the wakes, and near run over while swimming during these tournaments, and what about all the smaller pan fish that get hooked and yanked in, only to become stinky floaters because of torn mouths and busted bladders. Sure you throw the big ones back. Too bad in times like these of dwindling resources, someone came up with the idea of baiting fisherman with the idea of getting rich using a sport that used to be simply pleasure. Good luck Big Bass Boys on your next fishing harvest. I hope your wives are out there in town shopping, trying to even up on your expenditures. Randy Boutilier, Port Henry
Appreciates chamber acclaim To the Times of Ti: I would like to extend a public thank you to the Chamber of Commerce President, Mike Bush and the Chamber Board Members for selecting me to be the "Citizen of the Year" of Schroon Lake. I am very honored that they chose me out of all the applicants that they receive. I am sure it is not an easy job to chose one person or organization. It is an honor I will cherish for the rest of my life. The dinner that was held at the Word of Life Inn was wonderful, the food is always great there. And I would like to thank the many people who came to the dinner to share this honor with me. I was overwhelmed. Thank you to all the people who have sent cards and gifts and to all the people who congratulate me wherever I go. I am not one to accept compliments easily but I sure learned how with this honor. It took about a week for my feet to hit the floor. My husband says constantly that he had to make the doorways bigger in our house to get my head through them. Of course, this is not true but I am very proud to have received this award. I love to volunteer and will continue to do so until I no longer can. Again, thank you to all, especially the Chamber of Commerce. Kate Huston, Schroon Lake

Please remember them by saluting the flag - when you first see it, during taps and the National Anthem. Kama Ingleston Jeanne McMurtry Solemn Tour Coordinators
In his editorial of June 30, 2012 Denton Publications Publisher Dan Alexander compared the 3 1/2 year tenure of President Obama and the 18 month tenure of Governor Cuomo. It baffles me that you could even attempt to compare the two. Governor Cuomo has done very well but he is governing one state not fifty. He has people and businesses and infrastructure and healthcare and all sorts of problems to contend with but it can’t compare to what has to be dealt with when there are 50 times the problems. When we went to war in years passed they were paid for by raising taxes or selling war bonds as we did in World War II. We fought relatively short wars such as the Korean and Vietnam which were funded by surtaxes. History shows that President H.W. Bush probably lost his reelection because he raised taxes to fight the first Gulf war. When President Clinton left office, he left a surplus in the budget. Along came the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and President George Bush and his Republican Congress kept the costs off the books. The wars have cost an estimated 3.7 to 4.4 trillion dollars and that does not include future cost of veteran medical benefits from those wars. President Bush cut taxes, established a poorly planned and unfunded Medicare drug plan, and kept the costs of the war off the books which raised the deficit and increased the National Debt. During this same time, businesses and banks were hiding fraudulent practices they were doing. When we bought our house, we went to a local bank and financed it. The bank knew what we could afford and they approved the proper amount of mortgage. As the price of houses grew the banks and mortgage companies approved sales regardless whether people could meet monthly costs or not. For each new home that was purchased building materials, new furniture, appliances, schools, etc. were needed. However, we realized that most of our manufacturers of hard goods along with new cars were all “off shore.” It seems that the manufacturers were allowed to take their companies out of the country often with the blessing and funding of the government. Governor Cuomo does not have a majority in the Senate and Assembly who pledged that they would not allow a leader to have a second term and they would accomplish that by not working with him to run this country. They have brought this United States to a standstill. Maybe if Congress could work together with the President instead of disrespecting him we could get things done. I am sure that President Obama had prepared himself to have a large job on his hands but could he have imagined all the problems to be solved? He made an uplifting speech at the inauguration in hopes that the nation would feel some joy. Would you rather he had listed all the problems we faced and turned a happy day into a dismal day? Governor Cuomo has done a fine job in New York State and maybe someday he will take his good work to a Federal position but don’t try to compare one state’s leader to one who governs fifty. Ed and Jean Schiffler, Peru
Property tax reform group agrees with Times of Ti editorial To the Times of Ti: As a longtime proponent of school funding reform, I applaud the thrust of your June 30 editorial “Stop Quibbling at the Expense of Education.” While the need for spending austerity is likely to remain, school budgets can be reduced only so far without impacting quality. Our statewide group is finding that parents of school age children are increasingly concerned that their kids will be the ones who pay the price. At the same time, parents increasingly recognize -- as you do -- that the local property tax (an inequitable system to begin with) has reached an intolerable level of burden for the middle class. Educators, parents, and taxpayer advocates now more than ever have a common interest in developing an alternative funding system that will ensure school quality but not drive residents out of their homes and out of the state. As desirable as it might be, any significant increase in federal funding is likely to be problematic for fiscal, political and constitutional reasons, since education is basically left to the states. On the other hand, New York's own constitution specifically includes the responsibility to educate the state's children -- a mandate Albany systematically ignores by pushing most of the cost down to local school districts. We believe Albany should be the target of all who seek gradual change to a new system that will be better for the schools and the kids as well as middle class taxpayers. John Whiteley Ticonderoga Legislative Affairs Officer, NYS Property Tax Reform Coalition

Correction An article in the July 7 edition of the Times of Ti incorrectly identified a band playing in the Moriah Chamber of Commerce concert in the park series. The band playing on July 27 is The Arkansas Praise Band not the Moriah Baptist church choir.
There is no place like Ti
don’t know of any place left in the world where you can buy two cookies and a glass of lemonade for 25 cents. Until one day, I took a short drive up the street, in the new town where I live. A young boy with a small table outside of his home yelled “lemonade and cookies!” into my open car window. As I looked back, I realized how vacant the street was around him. I couldn’t believe that kids still did stuff like that. So, I turned my car around. The late day chatter of NPR played in the background. The interviewer was chatting about being people openly interested in other people, of the same and opposite sex. That’s when I realized, it was the perfect afternoon for a lemonade. The young boy, hidden behind his glasses, asked quickly if I wanted ice, and I told him either was fine, thinking, ‘ice what a luxury at this simple stand.’ He said, “25 cents!” I couldn’t believe it! Twenty-five cents for the cup and the cookies bagged in pairs in the giant salad bowl on his table. Here I was scrounging up 3 crumpled bucks from my tiny bulging fossil wallet (Not from the money I was currently making but from all the cards and plastic shoved inside). It had to have been more? So I gave him the wad and told him it was a donation. He gladly accepted and put the money in his small metal lunchbox. That was a deal, I thought. Three bucks was a deal, but 25 cents! I can get cookies at the gas station and they run between $1.50 and $2.50. He thanked me, and I wandered back to my, still running, car. As I drove away I waved, and he waved back. That’s when I saw a few sets of people turning the corner and walking up the street, and I wondered to myself if they would stop and get lemonade too? Or would they pass by his big sign and condensating jar of thirst quenching lemonade? For a moment I felt sad thinking they might walk right by with their head down, and not even stop to say hello. That is how I expected most things in the world to operate, lately. It was much different when I was a child. The ice cream truck would zoom around town in late summer afternoon’s playing a melodic tune and summoning the children. We would leap to the street and hang on the window until the dripping popsicles were in our anxious hands. And by the time we were finished, the swirling dyes would have painted our face. I miss that. It helped me to realize how important community participation and recognition is. It not only helps young entrepreneurs in their business endeavors, it helps to advocate an unspoken thankfulness between each other as we occupy the same space within any community. The boy working hard behind his lemonade stand left me with a smile, and the appreciation that I was able to meet a kind soul working to provide hydration to his community on a blazing summer day. It made me thankful. I am a happy, new member, of the Ticonderoga community. I have be given a great opportunity to work with Ticonderoga Revitalization Alliance (not too mention many other sister and brother organizations throughout Ticonderoga), helping to introduce new cultural arts initiatives, to bring people together. I hope to share with you what the boy from the lemonade stand has shared with me, appreciation and collective participation within the community. Caroline Verner

Mountain Lake to host second annual Ride for Disabilities today By Katherine Clark
email@example.com PORT HENRY — Mountain Lake Services Foundation will be holding its second annual Ride for Disabilities Awareness motorcycle ride July 14. Riders will travel through Essex County to support recipients of their care. The ride will begin at the Helen F. McDonald House, 10 St. Patrick’s Place. Riders can begin registering for the nearly 100 mile trip at 9 a.m. and will head out by 10 a.m. The ride costs $20 per bike and a $5 donation per rider. Riders will travel from Port Henry through Elizabethtown, Keene, Upper Jay to Keeseville and complete the trek returning to the Helen F. McDonald House. A cookout will be waiting for riders upon their return and there will be several give aways and a 50/50 raffle. The cost of the cookout is $5 and music will be provided by Mountain Lake Services Foundation care recipient, Justin Mader. Elizabeth Rutkowski, Assistance Director of Community and Staff Relations, said the event has been a collected effort for the agency with staff, service recipients, board members and community members coming together for the love of the open road. “A large majority of our staff love to ride and so does the community,” Rutkowski said. “It’s for a good cause and will be lots of fun.” Mountain Lake Services Foundation was established to ensure the financial future of the agency by securing community support. Funds raised from this event support the charitable interests of Mountain Lake Services which include providing scholarships to high school graduating seniors throughout Essex County who are intending to pursue post-high school courses of study in the field of human services. Also the funds support individuals with developmental disabilities and their families. For those who do not ride a motorcycle but would like to support the Mountain Lake Services Foundation, a golf tournament will be held Aug. 3 and a triathlon Sept. 15 which will include paddling, running and biking. The 11th annual Helen F. McDonald Memorial Golf Classic will be a four-person scramble tournament at the Westport Country Club. Registration will begin at 9 a.m. with a 10 a.m. tee time. The tournament is dedicated to the memory of Ms. Helen F. McDonald, an Essex County social worker who was a founding board member of Mountain Lake Services. The 14th annual Mountain Lake Services Foundation Triathlon will be held Saturday, Sept. 15 in Keeseville. The event features paddling, running and biking. There will be an Iron course and a Recreation course. Individual Iron and Recreational categories run all three legs. Iron and Recreational Teams may consist of two to four people. Pre-registration for the event can be done by calling 546-3051 ext. 314. Registration on the day of the event will begin at 8 a.m. at Camp Whippoorwill on Frontage Road in Keeseville. The race will begin at 9 a.m. For more information about the ride or future Mountain Lake Services Foundation events call Rutkowski at 546-3381.

Chilson BBQ to fire up on July 14 SALE
By Katherine Clark firstname.lastname@example.org CHILSON — The Chilson Fire Department will keep the barbecue fired up for serving up good food, along with good music and a classic emergency vehicle show on July 14. The event, which is now more than 45 years old, is one of two the department holds annually to raise money for their department. “Chilson is a good sized community full of family and traditions that run back more than 100 years,” Fire Department spokesman Stephen Phelps said. “We all pull together for a good old fashion picnic to support our fire house.” At last year ’s event there were more than 250 people with big appetites Phelps said. “My advice is to get there early, if it’s anything like last year the food won’t last long,” Phelps said. The grounds will open up at noon and food will be served at 1 p.m. The dinner will cost $12 per person and will include a half chicken breast and “all the fixings from salad to dessert,” Phelps said. The second annual antique and classic fire trucks will showcase service vehicles from around the region to compete for trophies. Last year ’s show featured many vehicles including the 1919 Ford Model T fire truck displayed by Irwin Borden, representing Westport Volunteer Hose Company No. 1, and a 1967 Seagrave ladder truck displayed by collector Dan Halpert of Ticonderoga. Both trucks are expected to compete this year as well as many more. Phelps said the department is anticipating many entries and said department members are holding their breath that “the old timers can make the long haul up Chilson hill.” There will be live music playing throughout the event, including the former Chilson Fire Chief, Chuck Moore, playing folk, country and rock on his guitar. Guests will also be entertained by the country music pair Dwinal W. Smith and Mary Jo von Tury. The Chilson Volunteer Fire Department has 44 members, including 20 who are qualified active firefighters and a growing number of junior firefighters. The department covers a 30-square-mile area that also includes Putts Pond and a large portion of Eagle Lake. Its fire district includes large tracts of state-owned land, and Chilson firefighters respond to brush fires as well as structure fires. The department also responds during weather emergencies, clears downed trees from roadways and even provides emergency services to home-bound residents during power emergencies. Phelps said this event is a great way for the community to support their department and have fun enjoying the company of their neighbors. For ticket information, or to enter a fire truck in the show, see any member of the department or call 585-6550.

Streetfest coming to Ticonderoga Expanded event planned July 28
By Fred Herbst email@example.com TICONDEROGA — Ticonderoga’s fourth annual Streetfest promises to be bigger and better than ever. Streetfest, to be held Saturday, July 28, is a community celebration of arts and crafts, shopping, food, fun, entertainment and family activities designed to bring people to Ticonderoga’s Montcalm Street business district. It will be held 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. “Join us as we again convert Montcalm Street into a pedestrian mall filled with kiosks, food vendors, arts and crafts, antique and new automobiles and boats, artisans and other exhibits,” said Rolly Allen, Streetfest chairman. “Food offerings will be extensive and we’ll have free live entertainment staged on the street. There will be much to see, experience and enjoy.” Streetfest is sponsored by the Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership. “I’m truly impressed with what a small committee of dedicated volunteers has been able to accomplish for our community; their enthusiasm is contagious,” said John Bartlett, Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership chairman. “Plan to come early so that you and the kids don’t miss a thing.” The Fort Ticonderoga Fife & Drum Corps, led by Mike Edson, will again kick off Streetfest at 10 a.m. The local group will this year be joined by visiting corps, who are participating in Fort Ticonderoga’s annual fife and drum muster. “Together they will march down Montcalm Street, playing as they go,” Allen said. “You won’t want to miss this fantastic start to 2012’s Streetfest.” Other entertainment will include McKenna Lee and the Eva Channel from Burlington, who will play contemporary rhythm
and blues, and Loose Connections from Crown Point, who will play a blend of blues, rock & roll and reggae. Penelope the Clown will be on Montcalm Street to entertain children and All ‘Bout Critters will have a display. Montcalm Street will close to traffic from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. between Lake George and Champlain Avenues. All parked cars should be removed by 7 a.m. prior to the street closure. Vendors interested in participating in Streetfest can visit the Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership website timainstreet.org or visit the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce office on Montcalm Street. Completed vendor applications should be returned to the chamber at 94 Montcalm St., Suite 1, Ticonderoga 12883.

Ticonderoga from page 1 Olcott said the company qualified for a Schedule A PILOT, which includes a sales tax exemption, mortgage recording tax exemption and 10-year property tax abatement schedule, which starts at 100-percent forgiveness of property taxes for the first two years, then reduces to 50-percent in year three with five percent drops through year seven and 10-percent drops for the final three years. North Elba Supervisor Roby Politi asked about the process in granting a PILOT agreement. “An application is made to the IDA,” Olcott said. “We evaluate the project based on need and community support and economic impact.” Chesterfield Supervisor Gerald Morrow said he was part of the committee that oversaw the application. “We looked at this very close,” Morrow said. “We looked at jobs and the necessity. There is no meat processing plant in the North Country and it is a hardship on the farmers to travel to Vermont or south. I think that this will lead to more jobs being created in the future. We would love to have something like this in our town.” Carol Calabrese of the IDA also said they were seeking funding through the North Country Economic Development Council for the company as a priority project. “There is a scoring for the regional council that can add up for funding,” Calabrese said. “We have looked at the council's regional plan and this is identified as a significant area for farmers and those who are looking to get locally fed and processed meats. It is a project that is also identified as needed by Cornell Cooperative Extension. With all this, we feel confident that we can go to the regional council and ask for this to be a priority project.”

Blue-green algae forces beach closures on Lake Champlain By Shaun Kittle firstname.lastname@example.org PORT HENRY — It’s slimy, blue green and potentially toxic. And it might be coming to a beach near you. Blue-green algae, a type of cyanobacteria that thrives in warm, shallow water, is being discovered in bays along the shores of Lake Champlain, in places it’s never been seen before. The algae blooms are more common in the northeastern section of the lake, but recently they have forced beach closures in both Westport and Port Henry. The blooms are often a by-product of phosphorus entering the lake through fertilizers often used in farming and lawn care, various types of detergents, and sewage treatment. Since phosphorus must have a means of getting to the lake, blooms are usually more robust after periods of flooding or heavy rain.
Moriah from page 1 landline with the home’s phone severed in the flames. “You got to the call one way or another,” he said, sometimes having to drive miles to call for reinforcements at the scene. Of all the mechanical and communication improvements Jaquish has seen throughout his career the arsenal of equipment his department carries is the greatest improvement. “We’ve got a truck for just about anything,” Jaquish said. “Just unthinkable back then.” When he first started working, the department had just

The Vermont-based Lake Champlain Committee has recruited and trained more than 100 citizen scientists to help New York and Vermont health agencies keep an eye on bluegreen algae. “It is important to understand that not all algae is bluegreen algae, and that not all blue-green algae is toxic,” said Lori Fisher, executive director of the Lake Champlain Committee. The committee has been active for about 50 years, but didn’t start monitoring the algae until 2004, after several dogs died after ingesting water containing the blue slime. Since then, they’ve been training volunteers to identify blue-green algae, and, in 2011, began training people to observe water quality throughout the lake. “Right now, state agencies don’t have the resources to gather as much information as we’d like,” Fisher said. “Our program adds to the knowledge of the lake, allowing the agencies to define trends and get a better assessment of water quality.” And in a lake full of living organisms, knowledge is key
to properly identifying potentially hazardous organisms. Fisher said there are several things found in the lake that are often mistaken for blue-green algae, such as the tiny, flat leaves of duckweed, pollen, and algae that grows in balls or long strands. Blue-green algae appears as a slime, and can have a bluegreen sheen when washed up on shore. The presence of toxicity in the algae can only be determined by chemical analysis, which is expensive. The Lake Champlain Committee stresses that the safest bet is to avoid areas where blooms have occurred and to always be aware of any local beach closings.

one pumper and a tanker truck. The Moriah Fire Department currently has a pumper, a large tank truck, a brush truck, a mini pumper, an aerial device and an equipment van with air. Through all of the fire and emergencies he has seen, Jaquish said the experience has been all good and he’s gotten to work with a good group of people and neighboring squads. “I think I’m relieved, it will be good to not have to go so fast,” Jaquish said. “But I will miss working with that great group of people.” Brian Glebus will take Jaquish’s position as the new fire chief of the department. Glebus was sworn-in during a department meeting June 14. Glebus has served in the department for the past two years and has been a volunteer firefighter for the past 20 years serving in Crown Point. Glebus said “you never know Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafava with former longtime Moriah Fire Chief Ralph Jaquish. where I’ll show up.” Photo by Keith Lobdell Glebus said as fire chief he wants keep training, training and training to be ready in case anyto just continue doing the hard work he has always done. “One thing I’ve always loved and felt like I had to do was thing happens,” Glebus said. The new chief praised the former chief for his years of helping out in the community,” Glebus said. He said he’s incredibly proud of the level of volunteerism service and said he hopes to continue to work hard as in Moriah during a time when most volunteer departments Jaquish did. “He is an incredible man for what he’s done, its an incredare hurting for help. “I want all of us to continue to do the same thing every- ible feet to do it for that long,” Glebus said. “Its amazing day, we’re a team and it doesn’t matter title, we’re going to what he’s done.”

Forest Dale Cemetery Association looks to the future CROWN POINT — The summer meeting of the Board of Directors of the Forest Dale Cemetery Association will be held Tuesday, July 24 at 9 a.m. This month’s meeting will be held in the Hammond Chapel's “Blue Room.” The Hammond Chapel is located on the corners of Route 9N/22 and Creek Road in Crown Point. Discussion will be held on the status of the current repairs of the access roads that were so adversely affected by earlier rain storms. Association members said they are grateful to Mr. Ingleston and the highway department employees for their concern and efforts regarding the necessary repairs. Association members also said they are grateful to Bernie Lillibridge for initially stabilizing the road and removing a tree that had “shifted.” Items on the agenda for the meeting will also include tractor repairs and replacement following a “break-down” of the larger tractor. The board has also announced the addition of the new flag pole in the circle directly in front of the Hammond Monument. The members of the association said they wished to thank Robin Knapp for his assistance and advice in the placement of the pole. The members of the association also said they wish to thank Ann Curran for her expertice not only for planting the large Flower Pots (recently repaired by Tom Neddo) on the front lawn of the Park but also her assistance going forward

Tethered to the house
from page 18
My wife and I like to visit museums and special events within a day’s drive, so it feels like we’re getting away from the regular people we see every day, but we’re not so far away that we can’t go home for dinner. After all, who’s going to let the dogs out to pee? My mother mostly, sometimes my fatherin-law. When we’re gone more than eight hours, we have to make arrangements for someone to let the dogs out. So we try to stay close enough to home. We take the dogs for walks and swims nearby but don’t travel with them. We’re afraid to try it. Besides, in the summer, we don’t want to keep dogs in a hot car while we’re making visits to local destinations.
The itinerary Make a list, don’t make a list, it’s up to you. Maybe you like a little organization, even on your vacation. That’s fine. Maybe you want to free-form it and go with the flow, do a stream-of-consciousness type of vacation. That’s fine, too. But if you’re going to make lists, you may want to separate them into categories, such as food, activities, books to read, etc. The first list should be a shopping list. You’re going to want to stock up on goodies. And it’s a good thing we have a full kitchen to enjoy, with a grill on the deck. But who wants to cook on vacation? We don’t, but we can’t afford to eat out every meal, even if we follow Rachael Ray’s $40 a day advice (that’s per person). So we mix it up: a meal out one day, dinner at home the next. It all depends on the itinerary and the mood. I like to at least have an idea where I want to go on my vacation. As much as I’d like to just sit around for a week watching Netflix and eating Chinese food and pizza, there is a world out there that needs to be explored, and I should enjoy the time I have to find out what’s in my own back yard. Bugs, mostly. I really don’t like to spend time in my own back yard in the summer because of the ants, hornets, deer flies and nosee-ums. So we must go and explore. Day trips are the key.
Shopping or hiking
Which of these costs less money? Obviously, if you’re home on vacation, you don’t have tons of money to go shopping; however, you’d have less if you were going away. So I guess shopping’s an option for some people. But it’s not for me. My wife likes to shop. And if she can figure out a way to trick me into going to a shopping mall, I’m usually hanging out with all the other husbands on benches outside the stores. I’d rather take a walk in the woods, though. My wife doesn’t like to, especially during bug season, so that’s a peaceful and inexpensive option for me. I try not to use up a whole day in the woods, though. After all, this is our staycation. My wife and I choose one week of the year to vacation together, when our schedules allow, so we have to
Vacation in Your Own Back Yard - 19
practice the fine art of compromise. It’s important that each of us be allowed to do something alone if we choose; however, we should also be willing to tag along on shopping sprees or baseball games, even if we don’t want to.
We like museums. Frequent staycation stops include the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake, Fort Ticonderoga, and many of the smaller museums throughout the Adirondack Park. Farmers’ markets are great, but you have to be careful with prices. Some markets are more expensive than others. Still, there is always a festive atmosphere at the farmers’ markets throughout the region. And there is usually one within a two-hour drive any day of the week. Summer concerts are a fun way to unwind, even in the summer heat. Most are free, so they’re affordable, and they are in comfortable surroundings, usually parks. Bring a lawn chair, sit back and relax. Boat cruises are worth the money. You’ll get to see things you normally don’t see. I recommend the 4.5-hour Discovery Cruise offered by the Lake George Steamboat Company. The Mohican II takes you from the village of Lake George at the southern end of the lake to Baldwin Landing in the town of Ticonderoga at the northern end of the lake. See all 32 miles of lake and learn about its history from the captain’s narration. We’ve also enjoyed boat cruises at Old Forge and Raquette Lake. Bring the camera. We love taking photos, and we are surrounded by some of the most
beautiful scenery in the world, so it’s not hard to find subjects. It’s a rule in my family not to work on vacations, so my wife typically scolds me for taking photos at events and attractions that she knows I will be using for publications I help produce. Many vacation photos have made their way into summer guides over the past 10 years. Although I’m afraid of heights, sometimes the best place to see a grand view is at the top of a mountain. You can drive to the top of Whiteface Mountain in Wilmington or Mount Defiance in Ticonderoga, which we’ve done. Prospect Mountain in Lake George is still on my to-do list. Or take an elevator to the top of a ski jump in Lake Placid. We also like to visit Vermont once in awhile during our staycations. It’s so close, there’s plenty to do and see, and we plan stops in Adirondack towns along the way, maybe visiting an orchard in Crown Point before crossing the Lake Champlain Bridge or taking a break at a local restaurant.
Too much of a good thing
You’ll quickly hit a mental wall and run out of time if you try to pack in a vacation full of trips in the Adirondacks this summer. There is simply too much going on to fit it all in. Even if you were retired and had plenty of time, you couldn’t do it all. So pick and choose wisely. Our staycation goals — in addition to de-stressing — include trying new things. We’re constantly surprised by the number of activities in the Adirondack region we haven’t done before. Gun shows, mostly. We did try it once, but there was a lot of junk, so we never went back. Happy trails.

Lee Berube set a new record for the Best Fourth in the North race By Shaun Kittle firstname.lastname@example.org TICONDEROGA — Lee Berube doesn’t race for bragging rights. When the 21-year-old crossed the finish line at this year ’s Montcalm Mile with a time of 3 minutes 54 seconds, it wasn’t victory that inspired him, either — it was his love of running and the energy from the cheering spectators, people he calls his friends and family. “I run a lot of different races, but the nice thing about the Montcalm Mile is that there isn’t much pressure to train specifically for it,” Berube said. “The pressure here is to perform well for the town.” Jesse Berube, Lee’s brother, and Lee Gabler finished next, both turning in a time of 4:03. David MaCarey and Bobby Henchen rounded out the top five. Berube, a Ticonderoga High School graduate, just completed his senior year at SUNY Geneseo, where he finished second in the NCAA Division III cross country championship last fall and earned the All-American honors in cross country and track. Performing well, it seems, is something that comes naturally for him. This year ’s win marks the fifth time Berube has won the Montcalm Mile, an annual event that drew 261 runners this year. Berube said he has participated in the race for as long as he can remember. “The records say I ran it in 1998, but I might have run it before then,” Berube said. “What I do know is that I haven’t missed a year since ‘98.” Berube’s finish time of 3:54 not only set a record pace for the local race — it put him 11 seconds shy of the world record of 3:43, set July 7, 1999 by Moroccan runner Hicham El Guerrouj. One day, Berube would like to creep closer to that record, and maybe even beat it. In the meantime, he will busy himself with reaching the finish line of the physical therapy graduate program at SUNY Upstate Medical University in Syracuse. Running, of course, will also be a part of his curriculum. Berube said he hopes that, by finishing with fast times in
Ticonderoga’s Lee Berube races toward the finish line on a record-setting pace of 3 minutes 54 seconds in the Montcalm Mile July 4th. The pace was just 11 seconds shy of the world record of 3:43, set July 7, 1999 by Moroccan runner Hicham El Guerrouj. Photo by Nancy Frasier
the Montcalm Mile, he can set a competitive precendent for the race that will draw high-end athletes in future events. But Berube said he is careful not to mix business with pleasure. He runs, not because he has to, but simply because he enjoys it. “I never want to make running my job,” Berube said. “I never want to make it work because it’s my passion.” Results of the race were as follows: 1, Lee Berube, 3:54. 2, Jesse Berube, 4:03. 3, Lee Gabler, 4:03. 4, David MaCarey, 4:11. 5, Bobby Henchen, 4:21. 6, Jay Berube, 4:24. 7, Josh Cook, 4:29. 8, Javeed Nazir, 4:35. 9, Henry Whipple, 4:42. 10, Dana Bush, 4:45. 11, Shawn Silliman,

Weather or not!
t had been a typical summer day in the Adirondack. The blue sky was dotted with tall, fast moving puffy clouds as I fished for bass on a local lake. However, when the sky began to darken and the leaves of a hardwood tree began to reveal their white underbellies, I recognized the signals of an impending rain. There were threatening clouds on the far horizon, and I could smell rain in the air. My ears began popping with the advancing low air pressure system, and the lake’s surface turned flat and glassy. I motored down the lake to take shelter before the wind began to kick up. There were a couple of other boats that had already retreated, but many remained out on the lake. Shortly after I got to the dock, the clouds let loose a torrential downpour and boats began to scramble for cover. Most of the late returnees were totally drenched and they soon provided evidence of just how far removed modern society has become from being able to understand and recognize the natural progression of weather. “I never even saw it coming,” exclaimed one young man. “Me either,” chimed in another. “That one really snuck up on me. The weather report sure was wrong!” Summer thunderstorms have a tendency to sneak up on travelers in the Adirondacks, especially while on a lake where the surrounding topography often limits a view of the distant horizon. It happens likewise on the trail, when tall mountains shield the vista. Despite the numerous natural warning signals that we should heed, travelers commonly fail to recognize the natural signs. Unfortunately, today’s travelers have become too accustomed to relying on weather forecasters, Doppler Radar Accu-casts. They obtain weather knowledge from a variety of sources, rather than from natural observations. As a result, modern society has failed to recognize or retain many of the long accepted, weather signals. Many of these natural indicators have been forgotten. Surely, most people have heard about the predictability of the groundhog and his shadow, which is more fable than fact. However, there are many natural clues to weather that are reliable. Unfortunately, most people do not know what to look for, and others simply don’t know how to observe. I wonder how many people recognize that dogs and cats will often become nervous and jittery prior to the arrival of foul weather. It is a fact, not a fable. Animals aren’t psychic, they can’t predict the weather, but they are much more sensitive to changes in barometric pressure than humans are. As a result, they have learned how to recognize as low pressure systems are approaching from a long way off. So do a number of other local critters. On the cusp of an approaching storm, frogs will typically croak louder and longer than usual. Crickets will exhibit the opposite behavior, chirping less often and more quietly. Low pressure also causes noises to carry further and thus, the notes of a song bird will be sharper and a loon’s laughter will sound louder, and the echoes will travel further in the night air. Other recognizable signs of an approaching low pressure system will be evident when birds fly lower to the water to feed on the insect hatches that often occur. Trout will rise more readily, sometimes leaping entirely out of the water to pick off insects that are just hatching. The appearance of flies such as the Blue Wing Olive is usually an indication of an approaching low pressure system. Bass are also extremely sensitive to changes in barometric pressure, and approaching low pressure fronts provide an ideal opportunity for taking bass with topwater plugs such as Hula-Poppers, Jitterbugs or Chuggers. Low pressure causes birds to gather on tree branches and telephone wires, or flock together earlier in the day than usual. Conversely, bees and butterflies will mysteriously disappear from the flower beds they typically frequent and ants will
wenty-five years ago, the Chinese government started a bass stocking program to meet the growing food needs of its people. As the Internet developed and provided a glimpse of the world outside the borders of the country, Chinese youth discovered recreational bass fishing. Internet coverage of big money bass tournaments in the United States fueled the next logical step in bass fishing in China – bass tournaments. Though still in its infancy compared to the big-time American bass tournaments, Chinese tournament bass fishing is catching on. The By Howard Hammonds FLW has seen the opportunity for future business development by assisting in the growth of fishing tournaments in China. A population in excess of 1.5 billion offers a future of tremendous growth. During the recent FLW Major tournament on Lake Champlain, I had the opportunity to be the camera boat driver for a group of Chinese bass fishermen and their camera crew. Several months ago, the Happy Fishing Channel, a 24-hour Chinese fishing network, ran a series of FLW affiliated bass tournaments in China. The grand prize was an all-expense-paid trip to the United States to compete as a co-angler in the FLW Major tournament on Lake Champlain. The winner, Wang Zhan, and his film crew arrived in Plattsburgh the Monday before the tournament. The takeoff Thursday morning would be his first opportunity to be on Lake Champlain. The buzz among the FLW Pros was how successful a relative beginner could be against the seasoned American tournament anglers. In the FLW tournaments, the co-angler fishes from the back deck of the bass boat and for the most part fish “used water” behind the pros. Not speaking any English, Wang wasn’t able to obtain much info from his first day pro partner, Darrel Robertson of Jay, Oklahoma. Words can’t describe the look on Darrel’s face when he met his first-day partner - non-English speaking Wang, competing in his first tournament. Nor Pictured is Chinese angler Whan Zhan. Photo courtesy of FLW Outdoors did Robertson know whether his Chinese partner understood the rules — all with a $125,000 payday on the line for Robertson. Darrel is a very successful FLW angler and has won over $1,700,000 in his career. He is also a big-time Oklahoma cattle rancher. But he is probably the easiest going and calmest fisherman on the planet — a great draw for Wang. The next morning, after several last-minute instructions, the tournament took off with me and the Happy Fishing camera crew following Wang and Darrel in my boat at breakneck speeds. The Chinese fish from small aluminum boats with electric motors, not the high powered rockets of the American professional bass fisherman. After a 15-mile roller coaster boat ride from Plattsburgh and much hooting and hollering in Chinese by my passengers, we arrived at Wang and Darrell’s first fishing location. Apparently, none of the Chinese delegation had ever been 60-plus mph in a bass boat before. Let the fishing begin. I positioned my boat 20 yards away from Wang and Darrell, allowing the camera crew to film the action. Now, watching someone else fish is worse than watching paint dry. Every cast when you are fishing is made with anticipation, but when watching someone else do the same, it’s just plain boring — that is, until someone catches a fish. Thank goodness, two minutes in and Darrel catches a bass and then another one, both keepers. It’s on and Wang is down in the boat looking for lures. Come-on Man! This isn’t going to be pretty, but at last he’s ready and fishing and - Wow - he catches one, about a two-pound largemouth. Great, after many photos by the Happy Fishing camera crew he’s back fishing and right away catches another one. Hey, this is fun! The rookie is catching them. Again another one, now Darrel is looking over his shoulder, another one and this one is big! Then a double, Darrel with one and Wang another one at the same time. “Great net job Wang!” I yell. So much for paint drying. Darrel’s isn’t a keeper, now he’s down three to two. It gets worse - two more for Wang in the next 10 minutes, he has a limit. “Oh, Darrel! You’re the pro not a guide,” I jab him. Darrel’s now shaking his head, he looks at me and shrugs and yells, “This kid is good.” Time for Darrel to bear down and he does with a couple small keepers. The pressure’s turned off and so do the fish — now we’re back to paint drying. For a fisherman who is 36 and only has been fishing 6 years, Wang is very talented. Smooth at casting and working his lures. I wish I could report that he blew away the field, but he didn’t. The luck of the draw has a lot to do with a co-angler ’s success. Wang finished 74 out of 127 competitors for the two days. Not a bad first tournament. But Wang built memories for a life time - his first trip to the USA, his first American bass tournament, and getting to meet his hero Gary Yamamoto, who was last year ’s runner-up on Lake Champlain. Gary is to Asian fisherman what Bill Dance is to American fisherman. Great memories. Just when I think I have seen and heard it all in fishing, along come the Chinese. Szechuan Bass anyone?

Still and calm waters such at these on Barnum Pond, may accompany either a high or a low pressure system. However the old rhyme, 'Red sky at night, sailor's delight' is generally accepted as a reliable indication of fair weather conditions soon to follow. Photo by Joe Hackett
build up bigger mounds around their holes, or actually cover the hole entirely. Cows will lay down in the fields or run around the field with their tails raised high swatting flies before a storm. As bad weather approaches, horses will typically face to the west to face the storm. Experience has taught me to take notice of such unusual behaviors in wildlife. If birds and beasts are acting weird, there’s often a good reason, especially if such actions are exhibited by a variety of different species A few of the other commonly accepted natural indicators include spiders retreating from their webs before a rain and bees staying close to their hives. Many people claim to have pain in their joints, or suffer ‘a pain in the brain before a rain.’ A coming storm is often presaged by bones that will ache, joints that will throb or tooth aches. Such whimsical weather rhymes were common in ancient times, and today they are easy to understand. Low pressure systems can have severe affects on the sinus cavities, thus ‘rain on the plain causes pain on the brain.’ Similar rhymes that come from those times would have to include, “When the wind is in the east, it is not a fit day for man or beast.” “Fish bite least, with wind in the east. But when wind is from the south, it blows the flies into the fish's mouth.” “When the wind is in the west, there it is the very best.” “When a ditch or pond affects the nose, look out for rain and stormy blows.” Approaching low pressure systems often keep scents low to the ground, including the musty smell of the autumn woods or the rankness of a bog. Other long accepted weather rhymes include “If birds fly low, expect rain and a blow” and “If the rooster crows on going to bed, you may rise with a watery head.” “Trout jump high, when rain is nigh. And a swarm of bees in May, is worth a load of hay.” “When sheep gather in a huddle, tomorrow will have a puddle” or “Expect the weather to be fair, when crows fly in pairs” and “When ladybugs swarm, expect a day that's warm.” “When chickens scratch together, there's sure to be foul weather” or “when pigs carry sticks, the clouds will soon play tricks, but when they lay in the mud, there are no fears of a flood.” Despite the best efforts and infinite intrusions of modern communications, there is simply no way to keep a constant track of approaching weather, especially in the Adirondacks. It is the wise traveler that will learn to pay attention to the natural signs. Although such signs are not always accurate, or easy to read, they can often make the difference between a ruined day or an easy escape to safe and dry terrain.

he NCSPCA would like to thank the owners of Keene Lodge for hosting last Sunday's annual "Paws for a Cause" auction event in Keene Valley, along with our many other contributors who provided food, entertainment and donated items for sale or auction. The event was a terrific success, and our animals greatly appreciate the funds raised toward our shelter. The annual "Gimme Shelter" Golf Tournament is swiftly approaching; July 20 will be here before we know it, and preparations are underway to ensure this event will be as enjoyable and entertaining as that of 2011! Proceeds of the tournament, hosted by the Westport Country Club, will be donated toward our new shelter fund. For more details and how to reigster, please visit ncspca.blogspot.com This week's featured pet is orange-andwhite tabby cat Irwin, who was a victim of Hurricane Irene last summer. Irwin, along with about 10 other cats and kittens, was displaced during the flooding and left homeless. When he arrived at the shelter, staff soon noticed that he did not seem to be adapting well to the environment and seemed unwell. We learned $
that Irwin has a compromised immune system, likely due to not getting the proper vaccines when he was a kitten. As a result, this poor fellow gets the sniffles very easily when he's around a lot of other cats. Although he has had difficulty living around the other cats at the shelter, Irwin would be able to thrive in a multi-cat household, as long as the other cats are all up-to-date on their vaccines. He is currently being cared for in a foster home, doing very well on some basic medications, but needs a new living situation by July 31. We are hoping that he will find his forever home by that time so that he does not have to return to the shelter. With his sweet personality and easygoing attitude, Irwin would be a great addition to the right home... could that home be yours?
