Ti school restores teachers

New union deals allow jobs to be reinstated

Ti recognizes two of its own with alumni awards.

By Fred Herbst TICONDEROGA Ñ Ticonderoga Central School District voters approved a 2013-14 $18.5 million budget that cut employees and academic programs in May. Two months later, all programs and most staff have been reinstated. The Ti school board voted to restore 20 positions during its July 9 meeting. When the 2013-14 budget was adopted 25 employees were cut, totalling 11.6 full-time equivalent positions. Ò Everything is back at 201213 levels,Ó Ti Superintendent John McDonald said, Ò except two teaching assistants and four retirements we havenÕ t replaced.Ó What happened? New teacher and non-instructional union contracts, approved after the budget vote, created enough savings to rescue the previously-cut jobs. Also helping was a late $100,000 grant from State Sen. Betty Little. The major savings is in the new Ti Teachers Association contract. Teachers, who had given up $1 million in pay by taking salary freezes the past three years, were scheduled to return to their contractual pay scale this academic year. That CONTINUED ON PAGE 13

Fort Ti to carry on century-old tradition By Fred Herbst TICONDEROGA Ñ A century-old tradition will continue when Fort Ticonderoga hosts its annual clambake. Ò AmericaÕ s Fort ClambakeÓ will be held Saturday, July 27, 3 to 6 p.m. It will be followed by a fife & drums corps concert at 7 p.m. Ò Bring your whole family to Fort Ticonderoga for a celebration of America’s Fort and enjoy a fun afternoon filled with delicious food, family fun and patriotic music set against the backdrop of the imposing walls of Fort Ticonderoga and the majestic Lake Champlain-Adirondack beauty,Ó Beth Hill, Fort Ticonderoga president and CEO said. Tickets are $30 for adults and $22 for children age 10 and younger. Tickets for just the concert can be purchased for $10 at the gate. Clambake tickets are available at Fort Ticonderoga and the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce. Call 585-2821 for more information or visit www.fortticonderoga. The menu will include marinated chicken, grilled hamburgers and cheeseburgers, rolls, old fashioned red bliss potato salad, coleslaw, old fashioned baked beans, corn on the cob, steamed clams with fresh drawn butter, and clam chowder. Desserts and beverages will be included and a cash bar will be available. Ò Ô AmericaÕ s Fort ClambakeÕ is a wonderful way to taste the tradition at Fort Ticonderoga,” Hill said. “The fort’s first clambake was held on Sept. 2, 1908, and hosted by the Ticonderoga Historical Society to arouse interest in a campaign to have the federal government purchase the Fort Ticonderoga garrison grounds from the Pell family. It was at this event that the museum founders, Stephen H.P. Pell, and later his wife, Sarah Gibbs

Thompson Pell, became interested in the fortÕ s monumental restoration, AmericaÕ s earliest restoration of its kind.Ó That same day Fort Ticonderoga will host its annual Fife & Drum Corps Muster. It will featured patriotic music throughout the day performed by fife and drum corps from across the country. Many Fort Ticonderoga Fife & Drum Corps alumni will participate in the performances. The Fort Ticonderoga Fife & Drum Corps is one of America’s first commemorative fife and drum corps. It was formed in 1926 to celebrate the 150th commemoration of the American Revolution. All event proceeds support Fort Ticonderoga, an independent, non-profit educational organization. Honorary chairpeople for Ò AmericaÕ s Fort ClambakeÓ are Ray and Robin Thatcher. Sponsors for the clambake and concert include: Glens Falls National Bank, Amtrak, Pepsi,

International Paper, Best Western Plus, Bridge Point Communications, McDonalds, Wagon Wheel Restaurant, Wind Chill Factory, The Sagamore and Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce.

Ti alumni awards to be presented Ceremony slated July 26 By Fred Herbst TICONDEROGA Ñ The Ticonderoga Alumni Association will honor a veteran and an educator/community leader during its ninth annual awards ceremony. Lt. Col. (Ret.) Peter Charboneau of Costa Mesa, Calif., and Anne B. McDonald of Ticonderoga will be presented with Distinguished Alumni Awards. The event will be held Friday, July 26, at the Best Western Inn. A hors dÕ oeuvres reception will be held at 5 p.m. followed by the awards ceremony at 6 p.m. Special Service Awards will also be given to June Curtis and Sue Liddell for their service to the community. The associationÕ s newest award, the Friend of Ticonderoga High School Award, will be given to Ticonderoga High School English teacher Deborah Breitenbach of Silver Bay. The award honors non-alumni who have made significant contributions to the Ticonderoga school community. The public, friends,and family of the awardees are encouraged to attend. Charboneau, a Ticonderoga native, retired in 2011 after 30 years in the Marine Corps Ñ starting as a private and working his way up the ranks to become one of the corpsÕ most honored members, a Ò mustang.Ó The century-old term “mustang” identifies enlisted men who worked their way up the ranks to officer status. Fewer than 5 percent of enlisted Marines become officers; fewer than 1 percent reach the rank of lieutenant colonel. Charboneau was a standout athlete at Ticonderoga High School, graduating in 1980. During his career Charboneau has earned bachelorÕ s and masterÕ s degrees along with a slew of medals and commendations Ñ including the Legion of Merit. The Legion of Merit was established by Act of Congress in 1942 and is awarded to members of the Armed Forces of the United States for exceptionally outstanding conduct in the performance of meritorious service to the United States.

McDonald is a retired Ticonderoga Central School teacher who has served on a myriad of boards, committees and other community service projects. She is now a member of the Fort Ticonderoga board of trustees. She holds an undergraduate degree from Russell Sage College, Troy, and completed master level work at SUNYPlattsburgh. McDonald is very active in regional professional, political, civic organizations and has served Lt. Col. (Ret.) Peter as the chairwoman of the Essex County Republican Charboneau Committee and president of the Heritage Museum Board of Directors in Ticonderoga. She is a member of the North Country Community College Foundation Board. The Distinguished Alumni awards recognize graduates of Ticonderoga High School who have succeeded in their personal and professional lives.

The black bear is the most abundant large omnivore in the Adirondack Park. State officials estimate the population here to be more than 4,000. Adults can weigh in between 125 to 500 pounds and live to be 33. Blame Goldilocks and her godawful porridge for this next bit: our clever Adirondack bears can open campers’ “bear-proof” food canisters, and might happily waltz into your kitchen for a nice pizza. The sad news is, once bears become used to our food, they lose their natural fear of people, resulting in more human-bear conflicts, and wildlife officials or citizens killing our bears. We need to help change that for our Adirondack buddies. Because just like you, bears are....

Speak out for those who cannot


cross the North Country the recent response from our readers about the charges against a Plattsburgh pet store owner for neglect and animal cruelty has shown how much we love our animals. Many of our readers were angry, concerned, and unhappy with the quality of care given to kittens at the local pet store in Plattsburgh and took to social media to air their unhappiness. Ò This is awful and makes me sick to my stomach,Ó wrote Jennifer Coupal Dwyer on The BurghÕ s Facebook page. In the case against Northern Puppies, the store owner Tammy Staley was charged with 20 counts of animal cruelty. Staley was charged for improperly caring for 18 cats, two of which were found dead in the shop. Three other kittens later died in the care of a veterinarian after being willingly surrendered to police. Two additional charges were for not providing two chow dogs, ages 2 and 7, with cages large enough to fit them. Staley was arrested after medical tests on the kittens showed the cause of death as an intestinal parasite called coccidia. Other health problems included ring worm, malnutrition, ear mites, flees, eye and respiratory infections. The strong, immediate response from the community was an indicator of just how quick society jumps to the defense of animals who cannot speak for themselves. A.J. Wells wrote on The BurghÕ s Facebook page: Ò I for one, hope that she never gets her license back to sell pets. SheÕ s not owning any responsibility for this. Her excuse is that it happened because she was away from the store. So, if your child dies when you are ill, itÕ s OK? Ah, NO, you are still responsible. Innocent animals have died and suffered due to this womanÕ s actions! Or should I say inactions?Ó The law requires that pet dealers offer a legal minimum standard of care to companion animals such as dogs and cats. Animals must be provided housing that is of adequate size and structurally sound and animals must be cared for or humanely euthanized. In the case of Northern Puppies, Staley argued that she did provide veterinarian care, but said the death of the kittens was out of her hands simply because Ò cats get sick.Ó She also said that the animals in her care were not looked after because she was away recuperating from an operation at the same time that employees were on vacation. But those excuses simply do not hold water. Yes, animals get sick, but it is up to their caregiver to follow through with a proper treatment of medicine to avoid death.

July 20, 2013

And, all small businesses deal with employees taking vacation or moving on to another job, but it is up to the owner to make sure the shop is covered Ñ especially when that shop is a pet store. Letting both employees take vacation at the same time and then scheduling an operation during that time was irresponsible, plain and simple. Clayton Smalley of Plattsburgh had a very similar opinion on The BurghÕ s Facebook page: Ò As the business owner theyÕ re still responsible. If your pets die because youÕ re not there to care for them itÕ s still your fault. If you were to hire negligent people, itÕ s still your fault. You have all responsibility for the place. Those problems didnÕ t happen overnight.Ó This pet store is also not new to controversy. A year ago, photos were posted to Facebook showing animals living in filthy conditions. At the time, picketers protested in front of the store. It is good to see people take a stand and speak out in instances of animal abuse, for a whole host of reasons. The most obvious is that they cannot speak for themselves, another is that animal abuse and cruelty is often a predecessor to other crimes like child and spousal abuse Ñ even murder. Dr. Harry Hovel, who spoke in May to a group of law enforcement officials in Essex County about investigating animal cruelty, said animal abuse can be a gateway or indicator of other problems, including cruelty to humans. Therefore it is not just important for animal lovers to be vigilant for cases of animal abuse, but all of society, Hovel pointed out. It wasnÕ t that long ago that district attorneys refused to prosecute animal abuse. Before that, cases of child and spousal abuse werenÕ t even considered a crime. But community outrage has changed that thinking, and prosecutors now take a hard stand for those who often cannot stand for themselves. Frederick Douglass once famously said: “find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them.Ó It was refreshing to see that people stood up against the injustice that was dealt these animals. In the end, five kittens who were 100 percent dependant on their caregiver lost their lives. If it werenÕ t for people speaking out about that, their lives would have been quietly lost in vein.

Hague FD steak roast set To the Times of Ti: The annual Hague Volunteer Fire Department steak roast is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 3, starting at 3 p.m. at the fire house. It will consist of the usual choice strip steak, baked potato, corn on the cob, cole slaw, rolls and dessert, as well as, beer, soda, hot dogs and hamburgers.

Radio and siren tests occurred July 2 and there have been several training drills for fire and EMS on the fire/ rescue boat. EMS schedules have been posted for July and the E5 Squad is on-duty for our Emergency Medical Services seven days a week for the summer. On June 24 the HVFD hosted a continuing education class on Ò Street Drugs,Ó presented by E5Õ s own Doug Wildermuth. Light refreshments were provided, as always all agencies are welcome to attend our classes. Hague Emergency Medical Service was recognized by Warren County for having a 96 percent response rate, one of the highest in our county! Many thanks go out to all our volunteers who helped keep triathlon participants safe during the HITS North Country Triathlon on June 28 and 29. In honor of Independence Day, the volunteers from the department stepped-up and showed off our apparatus in local parades. Thank you! A big round of applause goes out to our newest member, Brandy Bochy. We are very grateful to have another set of hands. If you would like to join the HVFD, our next meeting is Monday, Aug. 5, at 7 p.m. Talk to any member for details. SJ Santaniello Hague Volunteer Fire & EMS

Ticonderoga pencil anniversary to be marked By Fred Herbst


Mykayla Stockwell is congratulated by physical education tacher Ellie Berube for winning the Presidential Fitness Award at St. Mary’s School. It’s the third consecutive year Stockwell has achieved the feat.

TICONDEROGA Ñ If youÕ ve ever used a pencil Ñ And who hasnÕ t? Ñ youÕ ve almost certainly used a Dixon Ticonderoga. The brand, famous worldwide, is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. To mark the occasion, the Ticonderoga Stamp Club and Ticonderoga Heritage Museum will host a special event Tuesday, July 23. ThatÕ s when a special postal cachet and post card set, designed by artists Stan Burdick of Ticonderoga and Kama Ingleston of Crown Point, will be sold to the public 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the museum. There will also be discussions of stamps and stamp collecting as well as tours of the museum. Ò ItÕ s going to be a good day,Ó said Burdick, president of Ticonderoga Stamp Club. Ò We hope a lot of people will stop by and see the new cachet and see the museum.Ó This is the second postal cachet designed by the Ti Stamp Club. The first, depicting the Lake Champlain Bridge opening, sold 200 sets. That cachet will also be on sale July 23. Ò Stamp enthusiasts are great collectors,Ó Burdick said. Ò We had people from all over the country buy our first venture (the bridge cachet).Ó Joseph Dixon, who grew up in Massachusetts in the early 1800s, had long dreamed of manufacturing affordable pencils. When the Civil War began there was suddenly a demand for pencils as soldiers and their families sought to stay in touch. Dixon invented a wood planing machine that churned out 132 pencils a minute, enabling him to create four-inch long, cedar pencils. With the technology now available to make the wooden pencils, the difficult part became finding graphite. Following DixonÕ s death, his son-in-law took over his company and in 1873 purchased TiconderogaÕ s American Graphite Company. That deal led to the creation of Dixon Ticonderoga in 1913. By 1954 itÕ s believed 75 percent of the worldÕ s pencils were Dixon Ticonderoga. DespiteÕ s name, the pencils were never manufactured in Ticonderoga. The Dixon Ticonderoga Company is today headquartered in Heathrow, Fla., and now makes several brands of pencils, although the Ticonderoga Ñ a yellow no. 2 pencil Ñ is still its most popular. Dixon Ticonderoga pencils are no longer made in America. Burdick hopes the centennial anniversary of the Dixon Ticonderoga pencil will draw attention to the Ticonderoga Stamp Club and the Ticonderoga Heritage Museum. Ò The stamp club is a lot of fun,Ó Burdick said. Ò I started it several years ago and weÕ ve gradually picked up people from all over the area.Ó The club meets for lunch the fourth Wednesday of each month at EmeraldÕ s Restaurant in Ticonderoga. The Ticonderoga Heritage Museum is located in downtown Ticonderoga on the edge of Bicentennial Park. Commonly called

The Dixon Ticonderoga pencil is 100 this year. To commemorate this event, the Ticonderoga Heritage Museum and the Ticonderoga Stamp Club will hold a stamp cancellation on Tuesday, July 23, at the Heritage Museum 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. For the price of a postage stamp collectors can get a one-of-a-kind souvenir. A special cachet and post card set will also be available. the Ò 1888 BuildingÓ the museum is housed in the only remaining structure of the old Ticonderoga Pulp and Paper mill that once sprawled across most of the lower section of the town. Today the museum hosts an Adirondack gift shop and displays exhibits on the 200-year history of industries that built the town. It is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. through Columbus Day. The museum is handicapped accessible. For more information call 585-2696. The 1888 Building is an exhibit in itself. It was once headquarters to the International Paper Co. mill that operated along the adjacent LaChute River. When IP moved its mill a few miles north of the hamlet, the building was given to the town. The museum board leases the building. In the past few years the building has received a $100,000 facelift and there are ongoing plans for further improvements.

Ti summer program under way

TICONDEROGA Ñ The re-established summer youth program began July 8 at the Ticonderoga Elementary-Middle School and will continue until Friday, Aug. 2. The program provides free breakfast, lunch and a snack each day for program participants. In addition, Ticonderoga qualifies as an open site which means that all children ages 18 and younger can receive free breakfasts and lunches at the Ticonderoga Elementary-Middle School cafeteria, even if they are not enrolled in the summer program. Breakfast is served 7:15 to 8:15 a.m. and lunch is from 11:15 a.m. to noon. This meal service will be available Monday to Friday through Aug. 16, which is two weeks beyond when the summer youth program ends. Transportation to and from the school is not provided. The summer program offers swimming at the Ticonderoga Beach, sports, arts and crafts, games, bowling, the Arts Trek program, and more. The program starts at 7:30 a.m. Monday to Friday and ends at 2:30 p.m. each day. As in the past, the program is supervised by Angie MacAlpine, the program director, and her team of counselors. The fee for the summer program is $10 a day, a child. There is a scholarship program available for lower income families which reduces the cost for the summer program to $2 a day and still has a small amount of funding available. These scholarships are available to qualifying students on a first-come, fist-served basis. Registration forms for the summer program and applications for the scholarship program are available at the town clerk’s office at the Community Building.

Historic Ticonderoga cemetery reclaimed By Fred Herbst

and Gerald Abbott, and Ticonderoga Post 224 American Legion Honor Guard Commander Richard Gavlin, First Vice Commander Charles Messier, and Chaplin Bill Sanders along with legion representative Tom Provoncha, and Sons of the Legion members Bob Fuller, Jon Moses, and George Ashe. Also attending were Irene Putnam, Leslie Midgley, John McDonald, Nancy Tierney, Deacon Elliott Shaw, Mr. and Mrs. Ray Thatcher, Mr. & Mrs. Terry Smith and several neighbors and interested residents and guests. Ò A military prayer was delivered by Chaplin Sanders and a trumpet rendition of Taps was performed by the American Legion,Ó Dolback said. Ò A discussion on the restoration of the cemetery was provided by Mr. Powvorznik. Thanks were offered to Keith Dolbeck for the construction of the replacement gravestone and to Nye Quesnel and Gerry Gendron who helped erect it. Keith Dolbeck provided a brief history of the cemetery and also offered a special thanks to Albert Powvorznik for his relentless dedication to the overall project.Ó The town historian said another program will be held at the Isaac Morse Cemetery this Veterans Day. That ceremony, like one Memorial Day, will help highlight the 250th anniversary of the settlement of Ticonderoga, which will be observed in 2014. Dol-

TICONDEROGA Ñ A long-neglected resting place of a Revolutionary War veteran has been reclaimed in Ticonderoga. The forgotten historic cemetery at the base of CookÕ s Mountain on Baldwin Road was discovered by Dr. Bill and Bob OÕ Connor, who recently purchased the land. With the help of Albert Powvorznik and Keith Dolbeck, the cemetery has been restored. Ò This cemetery, known as the Isaac Morse Cemetery, was until recently an overgrown tangle in the woods littered with dead branches, broken tombstones and in a general state of disrepair,Ó said Bill Dolback, Ticonderoga town historian. Ò After the property containing the cemetery was recently purchased by the OÕ Connor brothers, a neighbor Albert Powvorznik became dedicated to resurrecting and restoring this burial plot and enlisted others to his cause,Ó Dolback said. Ò One of those people, Keith Dolbeck who had also known of this burial ground since childhood, along with Albert, cleaned and groomed the site as well as rebuilt one of the tombstones.Ó The cemetery is the resting place of Isaac Morse, a Revolutionary War veteran. His stone reads: Ò Isaac Morse/died Feb 21/1840/Aged 80 year Who was a soldier in the Revolutionary War Justice of the Peace for many years in Ticonderoga And the first American citizen to this farm” Ò While there were probably many past residents who were Revolutionary soldiers, they were often buried in gravesites marked with long-gone wooden markers or crosses,Ó Dolback said. Ò It is very unusual to see stones such as this that recognized the deceased as a Revolutionary soldier. Perhaps the fact that Mr. Morse was a successful farmer, landowner, and one of this town’s first justices, provided his family with the means to have such an elaborate stone cut to mark his passing.Ó This past Memorial Day a ceremony was held The Isaac Morse Cemetery in Ticonderoga, long forgotten, has been reclaimed. The site of at the cemetery. Attending were the OÕ Connor a Revolutionary War veteran’s grave, it hosted a Memorial Day ceremony. Taking part were brothers, Powvorznik, Dolbeck, Dolback, World War II veterans Gerald Abbott, left, and Charles “Gusher” Smith. A Veterans Day event World War II veterans Charles Ò GusherÓ Smith is being planned.

Ticonderoga to host relay runners About 3,000 athletes expected

be open to runners beginning Friday, Sept. 27, at 4:45 p.m. to Saturday, Sept. 28, at 5:30 a.m. Actual hand-offs in the relay race are expected to take place between 10 p.m. and 1 a.m. The race will allow several student and community groups an opportunity to make money, according to Bruce Tubbs, the Ti event coordinator. Last year Ti Middle School students raised money for their whale watch trip by charging runners $2 for showers in the school locker rooms. The Ti High baseball team sold fruit and coffee. College For Every Student participants raised money by charging runners $1 to sleep in the school gym. There is also a pasta dinner served in the cafeteria that raises money for the school itself. Ò We received many very favorable comments last year,Ó McDonald said. Ò ItÕ s a great event.Ó There is one complication this year. Friday, Sept. 27, the annual Ticonderoga-Moriah football game will be played at Sentinel Field adjacent to the school. Ò If it had been any other game we may have moved it,Ó McDonald said, Ò but itÕ s Ti-Moriah. ItÕ s a rivalry game.Ó McDonald said football parking will be moved to accommodate the use of the school building for the relay race. Ò I donÕ t think itÕ s be a problem,Ó he said. Ò The game should be over before most of the runners arrive.Ó

By Fred Herbst TICONDEROGA Ñ About 3,000 runners will be in Ticonderoga this fall as part of a nearly 200-mile relay race. Ticonderoga Middle School has been selected as an exchange point for the second annual Ragnar Adirondack Relay, which will feature more than 260 12-member teams running from Saratoga Springs to Lake Placid. Since Ticonderoga is an exchange point, every runner in the 192.7-mile race will be here. ItÕ s one of only six exchange points in the race. Ò Each team will have two vans with six runners,Ó explained Katie Aston Seely, race director. Ò Since Ti is an exchange point, one van of runners will be completing a leg and the other van will be starting one. One group will be in Ti waiting for its team, then the other group will stay in Ti to rest and refuel.Ó Ticonderoga was also an exchange point for the race last year. Ò WeÕ re happy to host the race again,Ó John McDonald, Ti school superintendent, said. Ò Last year it was all good. Everything worked very well.Ó Ticonderoga Middle School will

Runners will be finishing an 8-.7 mile leg of the race from Hague when they arrive in Ti. They will come north on Route 9N, turn onto Alexandria Avenue and go the middle school. The actual hand-off will take place at the playground in front of the school. Runners will then head

back out Alexandria Avenue to Route 9N and north toward Crown Point. Ò Ticonderoga is a perfect location for us,Ó Seely said. Ò I know runners look forward to reaching Ti.Ó The race will begin at Saratoga Spa State Park in Saratoga Springs, skirt along the Hudson River, pass

through the Lake George region, up the southern side of Lake Champlain and finish in Lake Placid. The race is known for its waterfront miles. For more information go online at

Cub Scout Pack 73 and Boy Scout Troop 73 in Hague recently took part in the Wakpominee District Boy Scout Camporee where it took home the bronze medal in the “Iron Chef” competition and the silver medal in the “Air Band” competition. Patrick Taylor, above, also competed in archery.

Ti students recognized at ceremony Willsboro hosts class leaders

their lives in certain ways that ensured they were thinking about things in a way that would help them be successful,Ó said Tyrell. Ò IÕ ve been fortunate to have had plenty of mentors in my life, some have been supervisors, some instructors, these factors are critical to success later in life.Ó More so, Tyrell said, as a college president he sees how there is not just one way for students to learn. He said in high school there is a heavy emphasis on memorizing information in order to succeed, but in college and in life synthesizing and understanding what is being learned is critical to being successful. Ò All of you are being recognized for being in the top 10 percent of your class, . You already have what it takes, you need to focus on passion of learning and then focus on the grades,Ó said Tyrell.

WILLSBORO Ñ Students from seven school districts across Essex County were recognized recently for their scholastic achievements at a special ceremony at Willsboro Central School. The eighth annual Excellence in Academic Achievement Recognition Ceremony honored 47 students from Elizabethtown-Lewis, Keene, Moriah, Schroon Lake, Ticonderoga, Westport and Willsboro. The recognition ceremony honored students who are in the top 10 percent of their class and maintained a grade point average of 90 or above throughout their high school careers with a metal and certificate of recognition. Students heard from North Country Community College President Steve Tyrell about the importance of college readiness. Ò WhatÕ s the difference from high school to college readiness?Ó Tyrell asked the audience. The difference, he said, is in high school there are many people there to hold the student accountable, but warns that in college students need to hold themselves accountable. Another factor Tyrell highlighted is the importance of learning from mentors or those who are successful.

Therapy dogs visit Inter-Lakes Health in Ti By Katherine Clark TICONDEROGA Ñ Westport Central School students visited residents at the Inter-Lakes Health in Ticonderoga recently with their furry companions. Fifth grade students Maggie Ploufe and Annette Stephens went with fourth graders Kassidy Brack and Ella King. The students made the day of one resident, Helen Poole said she loved being able to see the dogs and because it reminded her of her beloved chow chow that is being taken care of by friends in Rhode Island while she has been at Inter-Lakes. Ò I had some wonderful visitors today, it was really special,Ó said Poole. Missing from the group were fourth graders Tomasi Vaiciulis, Brenna Mazzotte, and fifth graders McKenzie Stephens and Carter Story. The students have been working with WCS teacher, Shoshi Satloff, for a year on training to be handlers for the dogs. Recently the group also visited Meadowbrook Health Care in Plattsburgh, Horace Nye Nursing Home in Elizabethtown and Keene Neighborhood House in Keene. At right: Helen Poole enjoys a visit from a therapy dog and its handlers Maggie Ploufe, Annette Stephens, Kassidy Brack and Ella King. Photo by Katherine Clark

Ti IP employees in national ad TICONDEROGA Ñ Hammermill, an American-made brand for over 100 years, is celebrating its history with an advertisement campaign featuring employees who make Hammermill paper and the consumers who use it. Featured in the campaign are Amy and Chris Dostie, employees at the International Paper Co. mill in Ticonderoga. Ò As one of four International Paper locations responsible for making Hammermill products the Ticonderoga mill is pleased to be featured in the campaign,Ó said Chris Mallon, Ti IP manager. Ò Mill employees like Amy and Chris Dostie and others represent the pride and precision that goes into producing HammermillÕ s premium quality paper products.Ó The campaign is set to launch on July 4 and will coincide with celebrations of patriotism and pride happening across the country during Independence Day. Ò WeÕ re proud to be the only brand of paper that has been made in America for over 100 years and this campaign is a celebration of our employees and customers for making that possible,Ó said Tracy Burke, Hammermill brand manager. The campaign comes on the heels of recent

reports showing the Ò Made in AmericaÓ label is an important attribute affecting consumer spending in the current US market. The campaign will be promoted through print, web and social media and feature International Paper employees in addition to Hammermill products and actual end-users of Hammermill paper. The Ò Made in AmericaÓ theme comes to life through employee features such as International Paper plant manager, Andre McBride and Hammermill product end user and bestselling author, Bonnie Low-Kramen.

Ticonderoga From page 1 meant a 9.8 percent pay hike. Rick Smith, president of the Ti Teachers Association, said his members wanted to save jobs, help district taxpayers and stabilize future budgets. To do that, they agreed to tear up the existing agreement with the district and enter into a new four-year contract. Ti teachers will get a 6.1 percent pay raise this academic year, 3.8 percent in 2014-15, 3.4 percent in 2015-16 and 3.8 percent in 2016-17. Ò Our goal is to maintain our programs and personnel as best as possible,Ó Smith said. Ò We feel this is a good contract for our members and the district. It gives us some stability for the next few years. We have a terrific school district and want to see that continue.” McDonald said teacher concessions the past three years have been crucial in allowing the district to stay within the 2 percent state tax cap. ItÕ s time to get the teachers back on their salary schedule, he said, but the 9.8 percent pay hike was just more than the district could bear. Ò I appreciate the teacher associationÕ s willingness to continue talking after the budget process had concluded,Ó McDonald said. Ò I feel very good about this. WeÕ ve been through some tough times, but the school board and teachers have always worked together for our kids and school.Ó Facing a $540,000 budget gap this spring, the Ticonderoga Central School board of education was forced to make tough decisions. To reach the state-mandated tax cap the budget cut full-time math, science, English and teacher aide positions. It also cut 4.5 teaching assistant jobs. Half-time computer aide, English and physical education positions were eliminated. It reduced full-time English and foreign language jobs to half time. Other positions in guidance, home and careers, music, art, business, technology, English and math were cut by 20 percent as was a social worker job. Also eliminated was a librarian position. That person retired and will not be replaced. McDonald stressed the school board did not routinely reinstate the jobs. The board looked at graduation requirements, enrollment projections and community input in making its decision. Non-instructional employees will get a 3.5 percent pay raise this academic year and 3 percent raises the following three years. McDonald said the new union agreements and earlier actions by the board of education have positioned the district well for the future. “The past few years we’ve started our budget process with deficits ranging from $1-$2 million,Ó McDonald said. Ò That wonÕ t be the case going forward. Looking at very conservative state aid and tax numbers we feel weÕ re in real good shape to stay within the 2 percent tax cap going forward. Barring some catastrophe on the state or national level, weÕ re out of the woods. Ò IÕ m excited about the school year coming up,Ó he added. Ò Our kids will have all the programs theyÕ ve had in the past. WeÕ re pretty much in tact.Ó Smith said teachers are also excited about the future. Ò IÕ ve seen the (district budget) projections,Ó Smith said. Ò TheyÕ re using very conservative numbers and IÕ m hopeful these challenging times are behind us. We have a great school and Ti teachers want to be certain it stays that way.Ó

Sherman Library gets new leadership

Jackie Viestenz retires from Port Henry post By Fred Herbst PORT HENRY Ñ Jackie Viestenz agreed to become Sherman Free Library director on a temporary basis just to help out. That was nearly 12 years ago. She retired July 1. Ò The library was very lucky to have such a dedicated director who instituted a variety of services to the community,Ó said Staley Rich, Port Henry library board president. Ò We will miss Jackie, but we wish her the best in her retirement. She has certainly earned it.Ó Andrea Anesi is the new Sherman Free Library director. Gal Baker has joined the staff as assistant librarian. Viestenz took charge of the Port Henry library when the then librarian took a temporary medical leave. Her temporary job became full time in January 2002. During her tenure the community library was modernized and expanded. Ò In 2005, I implemented automating the library,Ó Viestenz said. Ò That change brought many new features to the library such as online catalog book searches and reservations through the Clinton-Essex-Franklin Library system and generated the addition of computers to the library for the community to access and use.Ó The addition of the computers was made possible through grants secured from the Bill Gates Foundation. Ò Jackie provided new reading programs for

area children, along with weekly book clubs, guest presentations, computer classes and art exhibits,Ó Rich said. Ò I know as much as the community will miss Jackie they will be very pleased with the addition of Andrea Anesi, who has a long history with libraries.Ó Anesi grew up in Hallstead, Pa., where her mother was the town librarian. She went on to earn a bachelorÕ s degree in psychology from Kutztown University in Pennsylvania before receiving a masterÕ s in library science from Syracuse University in 1992. She has worked in small and medium-sized public libraries in positions ranging from assistant librarian to reference librarian to library director. Shortly after Anesi moved to Port Henry with her husband in March, she learned Viestenz was mulling retirement. Ò It seemed fortuitous, so I applied and was thrilled to be offered the position,Ó said Anesi. Ò My goals for the library are to continue the work of retiring director Jackie Viestenz, offer more library programs and services, increase the libraryÕ s online presence, and start a Friends of the Library group.Ó Helping Anesi will be Baker, who is replacing Sandy Ritchie who also retired earlier this year. Baker is from Brunswick. She came to Port Henry as a student teacher at Moriah Elementary School. She stayed and in 2010 retired after a 25-year career as a teacher at Moriah Central School. Ò Throughout her career, she has taught a wide range of ages from toddlers at a day care center to adult learners trying to become better

Ò She is passionate about reading and books and is excited to continue to work in the realm of literacy. Ò We are very pleased and excited to have both Andrea and Gail on staff,Ó Rich added. Ò Our

community is very lucky to have obtained twohighly enthusiastic and committed individuals who will provide the quality of service established by Mrs. Viestenz and move the library forward to meet the needs of our patrons.Ó

Dmitri Duval, a 7 year old Crown Point boy, suffers from Juvenile Dermatomyositis, an auto immune disease that attacks skin and muscles. It is potentially life threatening, affecting only 2 in a million children.

Crown Point From page 1

To raise awareness about Juvenile Dermatomyositis, Dmitri Duval’s family gathered a team to run in the Biggest Loser Half Marathon and 5K road races in Plattsburgh this spring. They raise more than $1,500 for the Juvenile Dermatomyositis Foundation. Taking part in the half marathon were Erin Duval, Kyle Dinsmore, Christina McDonough Slattery, Maria Ann MacKay, Michele Leroux and Angele Vanderlaan-Leroux. Running the 5K were Ann Marie Galvin, Delaina Dinsmore, Todd Condon, Tonya Whitford Condon, Erin Burroughs, Ginny Crowfoot, Chris Crowfoot and Rebecca Granger Moore. Running the mike children’s run were Dmitri Duval, Riley Dinsmore and Bailey Dinsmore. sun block is applied every day, as this is a huge must,Ó she said. Dmitri just completed first grade at Crown Point Central School. The Duvals are optimistic about DmtriÕ s future. Ò For Dmitri his prognosis is good,Ó his mother said. Ò A third of the children with JM will respond well and never have a reoccurrence of the disease, a third will have a reoccurrence at some point and maybe multiple times, and a third will have a chronic course that does not respond well to the treatments. Ò Since Dmitri was diagnosed we have become a part of the Family,Ó Erin added. Ò Without them we would have been lost. Since his diagnosis three children have lost their battle with this disease.Ó To raise awareness about Juvenile Dermatomyositis, the Duvals gathered a team to run in the Biggest Loser Half Marathon and 5K road races in Plattsburgh this spring.

Ò We decided to do the Biggest Loser run because we were unable to attended the annual conference (in Chicago) for JM this year,Ó Erin said. Ò I had already committed to run the half (marathon) so I felt I still needed to do this, even though it wouldnÕ t be in Chicago with the rest of the JDM families. Initially it was my brother and I who were going to run. When we realized the trip was no longer an option we decided to create a team here. The goal in Chicago was to raise awareness, so we needed more people here if we were going to be noticed.Ó More information on Juvenile Dermatomyositis is available online at Dmitri also has a Facebook page called DmitriÕ s mission with information.

that wouldnÕ t heal. The doctors said sensitive skin. After about four months he started to become unable to walk. He could no longer get out of bed. He couldn’t sit on the floor to play because his muscles were deteriorating so badly.Ó A series of tests alarmed doctors and family. “His pediatrician had never heard of JM,” Erin said. “She finally figured out what she thought it was, but we had to go to Burlington to have the diagnosis confirmed. He was immediately admitted in to the hospital to start IV steroids, methotrexate (a chemotherapy drug) and have MRIs and more blood work to confirm.

Lime Lake is no lemon!


his past week I was on another mission; a working vacation combined with fishing, of course. My working aspect was doing wildlife habitat work. My fishing trip was for bass; smallmouth and largemouth. This time I was down in northBy Rich Redman ern Allegany county cutting trees in a small town named Short Tract. When my sister Suzy was diagnosed with lung cancer they held an auction to raise money for finding the cause and cure for cancer. I donated a wildlife management plan to the auction. Good friends, Johnny and Carol Beitz bid on it, and won the wildlife management plan for their hunting property. I completed the wildlife plan two years ago, and now I go down once a year to fell trees on the property, creating openings for food plots and early successional growth. I also cut trees down to allow sunlight to reach the apple trees that are straining to get sunlight. Johnny has been following the guidelines outlined in the plan and the results are showing. In just one year there has been a remarkable change in the amount of apples that are growing. Last year there were trees with no apples due to the shade. This year with the rain and life giving sunlight reaching the trees, there are apples galore! We cleared an area where brassicas will be planted, providing energy to deer this fall. A nice little buffet table is being created for both grouse and deer. Apples, grasses, clovers and brassicas will supply minerals, carbohydrate energy and protein to the deer for growth and weight gain to get through the winter. The food and food plots will keep deer near his property long enough so he can bow hunt this fall. Winter will be arriving faster than we think. ItÕ s all coming together for Johnny and his hunting property. Last year he was a bit hesitant about cutting trees. He is now a true believer in wildlife management and allowing the sun to do the work! After dropping about forty trees, I was done for the day. Johnny now has his work cut out for him pulling brush and tops to create designated movement areas for deer. He also will be getting some exercise cutting the red maple up for firewood. This fall should be a good hunting season for my friend and his property. Once I was done cutting, it was fishing and hydration time. I returned to Lime Lake in Cattaraugus County where I stayed with Andy Christie, his family and friends. Bass fishing was on the hit list for activities. Andy’s brother, Ken Christie is a semi-professional bass fisherman who competes in NYS Bass Federation tournaments and I was lucky enough to be able to get a day out on the boat with him. He will be on Lake Champlain later this year for a bass tournament. The next morning we set out in his Triton bass boat with an Evinrude 150 engine and shot across the lake like a bullet. Lime Lake is a small lake or what could be called a large pond. ItÕ s about 1 mile long and lean in width with a few bays. The lake is elbow to elbow with camps and cottages, so if you like solitude, that is not a daytime option. The only solitude is found during night fishing. Water skiers, jet skis, canoes and pontoon boats are plentiful on holiday weekends, but scarce during the week. It’s a great little lake to fish with a canoe or small boat, which can be put in at the DEC access area. You can’t back a trailer with a boat into the access area to launch; it’s for carry in only boats. The camps all get access through a private launch on the lake which is for lake association members only. Despite this limitation, it’s a great spot to fish for bass. The rain started after our first hour out, but we were catching fish so it didnÕ t matter. One after another, we started pulling in largemouth bass; many of very acceptable size. Ken caught the one and only norlunge; about a 22-incher. The norlunge were stocked to keep the population of bluegills, sunnys and perch from over running the lake. There were two guys in our party who didn’t catch a fish: Nick and Pat, but I wonÕ t mention their names due to fact that they are overwhelmed with depression and embarrassment! We broke for lunch, changed into dry clothes and went back to fishing. We were using lightweight spinning rods with 8-pound test line. The bait was a white fluke which was twitched on the retrieve, and allowed to sink. It worked superbly! We caught bass and norlunge and enjoyed the time fishing. I made some new friends and yes, life is good! Lime Lake is no lemon when it comes to bass fishing! Lime Lake is a small, sometimes congested lake, but a beautiful spot to fish. It’s right off of NYS Route 16, south of Arcade about five miles. There are gas stations, restaurants and shopping areas nearby along with camping areas and motels to stay in, so if you are passing through western New York or just doing a walk about wanderlust trip enjoying life, stop in and fish this sweet little lake. This article is dedicated to my little sister Suzy who lost her battle with lung cancer, and to all the family and friends in western New York who were there for her! Thank You. To everything; turn, turn, turn. There is a season; turn, turn, turn! I miss you Suzy!

Race proceeds will benefit the Duane Crammond Memorial Fund. The fund helps support the Ticonderoga High School cross country and track teams as well as youth running programs in the community. During its first seven years proceeds from the race were used to fund the Duane Crammond Memorial Scholarship. That $1,000 annual scholarship is now fully funded and will continue to be awarded. The Duane Crammond Memorial Scholarship and the Duane Crammond Memorial Fund are named for a former Ti High running stalwart. Crammond died in a car accident in 2005 at age 24. Crammond, the valedictorian of the Ti High Class of 1999, was a cross country and track champion in high school. He went on to become an honor student at RPI, where he majored in engineering and was captain of the collegeÕ s cross country team. He was also the leading distance runner on RPIÕ s indoor and outdoor track teams. After graduation from college, Crammond dominated local races. In 2003 he won the Montcalm Mile in Ticonderoga and the Race the Train event in North Creek. He was third in the Whiteface Uphill Run in Wilmington, fourth in the Prospect Mountain Road Race in Lake George and fifth in the Lake George to Bolton Adirondack Distance Run. He capped that season by winning the Adirondack Marathon in Schroon Lake. In 2012 a pair of former Ticonderoga High School runners claimed victory in the Footrace at the Falls. Jesse Berube won the 3.1-mile cross country menÕ s race in a time of 17 minutes, 1 second, while Connie Belkevich captured the womenÕ s event in 25:24.
