New Bartlett Pond dam nearly complete By Fred Herbst MINEVILLE Ñ Construction on a new dam at Bartlett Pond is expected to be completed this month. The barrier will replace a old dam that failed twice in recent years Ñ during Tropical Storms Irene and Lee. Those failures led to flooding that washed away a portion of nearby Bartlett Pond Road. Bartlett Pond is the water source for the town of Moriah and village of Port Henry. Water from the 60-acre pond is treated at a $13 million facility on

Bartlett Pond Road before it enters the municipal water system. Ò This is a good project,Ó Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafava said. Ò It had to be done and, thanks to FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency), itÕ s being done at no cost to local taxpayers.Ó FEMA has awarded Moriah a $120,000 grant that will cover the cost of the project. Jamie Wilson, Moriah highway superintendent, said the old dam was more than 50 years old and no longer operable. When water levels at Bartlett Pond rose to flood stage during major storms, the dam could not be opened to alleviate the situation, he said.

Tropical Storms Irene and Lee caused flooding that made Bartlett Pond impassable, which was a problem for local residents as well as town workers who maintain the water treatment plant and pond. Following flooding last year the Moriah highway department made repairs to the road and replaced the decking around the old dam. Winter then stalled the project. This summer a Ò stop-logÓ system is being constructed to replace the old dam, Wilson said. The new dam is being erected by Kubricky Construction.

It was very emotional.Ó The flight took 31 veterans, including Ticonderoga resident DiFebbo, to Washington, D.C., for a tour of the World War II monument and other sites. But it was more than a sight-seeing trip. It was a way of honoring and thanking members of AmericaÕ s Greatest Generation. Ò ItÕ s one of the best things IÕ ve ever done,Ó DiFebbo said of the trip. Ò They (Honor Flight officials) were fantastic. They made us feel really special. They deserve so much credit.

Vote yes on Prop 5


September 28, 2013

here are few major employers in the Adirondack Park, and we must do everything we can to support them. One of those is NYCO Minerals, which employs 105 North Country residents at their operation in the towns of Willsboro and Lewis. Over the past two years, both houses of the New York State Legislature passed bills supporting a constitutional amendment approving a land swap between the state and the mining company that would grant access to more veins of Wollastonite, a mineral used in paint, plastics used in the automobile industry, brake pads and linings, ceramics, construction materials and more. This swap would allow NYCO to remain viable in Essex County for 10 more years. Currently, the only two Wollastonite mines in the country are located in the North Country, with one site in Lewis and one in Gouverneur. Now it’s up to voters to seal the deal. The final step in the process to transfer the 200 acres known as Lot 8 to NYCO in exchange for 1,500 acres of company-owned property and a promise to return the 200 acres back to the state as reclaimed property is a statewide referendum which will be on the Nov. 5 general election ballot. We urge voters to approve this exchange and vote Ò yesÓ on Proposition 5. This appears to be a win-win situation for NYCO and New York state, plus a win for environmentalists. The state will add 1,500 acres to its Forest Preserve, property that NYCO owns but only touched to take core drilling samples which came back with no traces of the mineral they sought. In addition, the 200 acres that are being loaned to NYCO will be returned as reclaimed property, making 1,700 acres of Forever Wild land returned to the Adirondack Park. It will be good for local municipalities as the 200 acres, currently assessed at $120,000, will now be assessed at near $1 million based on the value of the mineral deposits NYCO is seeking to extract. It will also be good for the North Country because it will keep good jobs here. Some say NYCO can just mine up north and be content, but that would still mean the loss of 100-plus jobs from the North Country economy, jobs that are desperately needed. The proposal has plenty of backing from nearly all sides of the issue. The measure is being supported by United Steelworkers, AFL-CIO, Adirondack Association of Towns and Villages, local and state politicians and Gov. Andrew Cuomo. It has also received the blessing of the Elizabethtown-based Adirondack Council, a leader when it comes to watching out for the environmental interests of the Adirondack Park. Council officials said the additional 1,500 acres of Forest Preserve comprises better habitat for fish and wildlife, 3 miles of streams and has considerably more ecological value than the 200 acres which would be temporarily given up. Executive Director William Janeway further added that Ò the proposed land swap now exceeds our standard for supporting constitutional amendments involving the Forever Wild clause.Ó In addition to the economic benefit, this land swap will be a win for the Adirondack Park, which will receive 1,500 acres of Forever Wild lands contributing to the beauty and serenity of the region we all call home. And we get our 200 acres back from NYCO once they are done mining. The land will be filled back in and reclaimed through seeding. There truly appears to be no losers in this proposed deal. On Nov. 5, as you are deciding who your local elected leaders will be, please take a moment to look at the state propositions and vote in favor of the constitutional land swap between the state and NYCO.

Letters to the Editor

Basket party a success To the Times of Ti:

Guest Viewpoint

Food drive a success To the Times of Ti:

The Ticonderoga Fire Company Ladies Auxiliary would like to thank everyone that donated to our annual basket party this year. It was held Aug. 5 and it was a huge success! We had over 325 baskets and gift certificates for our raffle and well over 100 people in attendance. To our donors, both business and individual, we give out a big thank you! Without the continuous support from you we would not have such a large selection for our event. Our auxiliary is more than helping the fire company at fire scenes and purchasing needed equipment. We also donate to many local charities and groups such as Ti Food Pantry, The Ronald McDonald Houses of Burlington and Albany, CR Wood Cancer Center, Life Flight, The Distinguished Young Women of New York, Ti Youth Football League, The SPCA of Essex County, Relay for Life, etc. Please mark your calendars for next yearÕ s basket party, Monday, Aug. 4. Thank you. Jackie Burlingame, Suzanne Landers Basket party co-chairwomen Ticonderoga Fire Co. Ladies Auxiliary

Food pantry gets support To the Times of Ti: The volunteers of the Ticonderoga Food Pantry wish to acknowledge with appreciation, recent donations. Thank you to Dollar Tree, for the recent food drive conducted there and The Sentinel Grill for their donation from their Give Back Program. We also thank the local gardeners who have donated extra produce this summer. Each and every donation helps us help others, and all are appreciated. As a reminder, the pantry is open, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 11 a.m. until noon. Margaret H. Beuerlein, pantry director Ticonderoga

Consider all the facts To the Times of Ti: So, the Moriah supervisor wants another study on consolidating the Mineville-Witherbee and Moriah fire districts. He, himself, conducted the study in 2005 from which he concluded what we had all been saying for some time, that there would be no advantage to consolidation. He alludes to all three departments responding to most fires. For a structure fire we have an automatic mutual aid agreement in place, which works very well. We donÕ t all need to respond to every incident, such as MVAs (motor vehicle accidents) or minor incidents. As for the funding, he simply wants to redistribute the costs by eliminating the fire protection districts. This would not really be beneficial or take into account the differences in need. Response time to any incident is crucial and would not benefit from consolidation. He states the two fire stations could remain open and keep their equipment. So where is the savings there? He mentions replacing two boards of fire commissioners and two sets of department officers to become one board of fire commissioners and one set of department officers. These people are all unpaid volunteers. Where is that any savings? The unfunded mandates that are being forced upon the districts are what are hunting us and consolidating the two districts would not even address that issue. The state requirements for accounting and reporting would be much more complicated due to the size of a combined budget. Very careful consideration of all the facts is important before any decision is made concerning consolidation. George R. Harrington Moriah

Article was one-sided To the Times of Ti: Shawn RyanÕ s article about the NYCO land swap vote in the Sept. 21 issue is completely unbalanced. Everyone is entitled to her or his opinion but a newspaper should present both sides of an issue. There is no mention of the groups opposed to the constitutional amendment (Protect the Adirondacks and Adirondack Wild). Nor is Oak Hill discussed, NYCO’s other mine with an expected life of 16 years or more. It appears NYCO simply wants more land and more profit at the expense of “forever wildÓ forest. No matter how you look at it, there will be another strip mine scarring the Jay Wilderness for many years if the amendment passes. Timothy Mount Elizabethtown

In 2009, Congress designated Sept. 11 as a National Day of Service and Remembrance and charged the Corporation for National and Community Service with helping to support this effort across the country. The Sept. 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance established the inspiring tradition of Americans engaging in charitable service on 9/11 as an annual and forwardlooking tribute to the victims, survivors, and those who rose up in service in response to the attacks. The North Country Regional Volunteer Center operated by the United Way of the Adirondack Region, Inc. held a food drive in conjunction with Adirondack Community Action Program (ACAP), Adirondack Daily Enterprise, Catholic Charities of Franklin County, and Joint Council for Economic Opportunity (JCEO). The food drive was a success! We doubled the amount from last year with 570 food items and $350 being donated by concerned residents through workplace collections and individual givers. A colossal thank you goes out to all the citizens that contributed to the success of the 9/11 food drive by either donating or volunteering their time to collect the must needed food items. The generous outpouring of support is what makes our region a community! A special thank you goes out to Shirley Hosler who volunteered for four days sitting outside the Adirondack Daily Enterprise collecting over 150 food items and over $350 in money that was donated to the Saranac Lake Food Pantry. Kathy Snow Director of Development United Way of the Adirondack Region, Inc. Plattsburgh

Flowers taken To the Times of Ti:

I am writing this letter to the person or persons who felt compelled to steal the potted mums from my fatherÕ s grave at Mount Hope Cemetery. IÕ m not sure what kind of person you are that you could take flowers from a dead person without any remorse. I guess you figured that he wouldn’t notice them gone, but my mom did. She purchased the flowers from Aubuchon for just under $4 and placed them in a concrete flower pot. Thereby, we know they didnÕ t just blow away. I can only surmise that you havenÕ t yet experienced the pain and devastation of losing a loved one. If you had, you would understand the sacredness of that loved oneÕ s grave. It is the only connection you have to them once they’re gone. Placing flowers, wreaths, flags, statues, solar lights and ornaments are ways that we, the living, cope with the loss and honor the dead. I wish I had known that you were so desperate for flowers to adorn your home and yet unwilling to buy your own that you would steal someone elseÕ s. I would have gladly bought some for you. Enjoy the flowers. Each time you look at them, remember where you acquired them. Lisa (Bennett) VanderWiele Schroon Lake

Disagrees with publisher To the Times of Ti: Ò Is there anyone else out thereÉ .?Ó asks one of your letter writers. Well yes. I donÕ t think Mr. KleimanÕ s accusation of Ò racist rantingsÓ by the publisher of the Valley News is accurate or effective. I do think Mr. Alexander has a talent for putting his foot in his mouth. Subsequently defending himself against the charge of racism Mr. Alexander writes Ò É we should not turn a blind eye leaving [many African Americans] to injure and kill each other in these crime ridden communitiesÉ Ó ThatÕ s just clumsy and thoughtless phrasing. It is reminiscent of the fashionable idea of the Ò White ManÕ s BurdenÓ popular about a century ago. It implies that Ò weÓ --whoever that is--donÕ t kill each other like impoverished African Americans do. Mr. Alexander need only to take a better look at any morning newspaper or evening newscast to realize how wrong that is and how foolish he sounds. I prefer to address once again the other issue touched on by your correspondent. Call it the burden carried by your readers. Week in, week out, the Publisher of the Valley News hyperventilates his political opinions in apparently blissful ignorance of other points of view and with little fear of contradiction. I know of no other newspaper --reputable or otherwise-- that serves up to a captive audience only its ownerÕ s opinions on national issues. The weekly columns written by anonymous editors about local matters hardly remedy this practice . And it certainly does not constitute a public forum that Mr. Alexander receives--as he tells us,-- oh, so many private letters and phone calls commenting on his ideas. There was a time when the Valley News was fun to read. We gladly waited and paid for the varieties of opinion expressed in weekly or bi-weekly or monthly columns signed by staff writers like Fred Herbst, Rob Hall and many others. The Valley News in those days was a community newspaper, a marketplace of opinions, an example of a free press on which, --as Thomas Jefferson wrote,-- our liberty depends. Its not that any longer.

When is a deal a good deal? By Alex Levitch


udging from the number of self-accolades being passed around, the news is big for TiconderogaÕ s economic development front. A regional meat packing slaughterhouse is coming to town. I gather this may, already, be a Ò done dealÓ or close to; but it should never be too late to ask the right questions and draw the requisite lessons Ð especially, where the communityÕ s ability to protect its revitalization investment priorities may have been placed at undue risk. One has to start by asking Ñ could this ever be a good thing for the cause of economic advancement, where poor are pitted against poor (this time, neatly contained in the greater Adirondack Park/ North Country community) — to win a contract that hardly anyone, rich or poor, would want as their first choice in the first place — if, only, one could afford to refuse it? (On the subject of affordability, think Ñ Botswana prevailing over its equally poor neighbors for the privilege of storing nuclear wastes in precious country soil.) Never mind a long term planning initiative completed twice by the town and twice adopted by the Ticonderoga Revitalization Alliance, calling for an environmentally sensitive and attractive place, suitable for destination tourism with an emphasis on outdoor recreational pursuits, indoor and outdoor pursuit of the arts, business incubation and entrepreneurial/ educational links, regional hub for various big and small box retailers. Never mind the incredible array of assets this little town of under 5000 has to offer in any potential self-makeover Ñ i.e., a top rated, local college system, our incredible fort (“America’s Fort), an unparalleled location of historical, environmental, recreational and regional economic importance, a substantial prospective volunteer corps (as we have seen in connection with the early activities of the Alliance). Never mind a 40 percent vacancy/ underutilization rate in its principle, downtown and four corners real estate, ready to lend itself to a broad, public/ private redevelopment initiative. Tell us once more, please, what a slaughterhouse has to do with any of the priorities and extraordinary gifts with which Ticonderoga has been so richly blessed? Are we implicitly changing our town economic development standards and priorities, let alone risks of accomplishment as currently set forth in town and alliance plans? Or are our leaders demanding appropriate protections? What, exactly, is the price to be paid; and whoÕ s paying. What is the anticipated number of new jobs, recruited locally and earning a living wage? Are there any exceptions relating to zoning, site beautification, prevailing wind/ smell, special infrastructure investment requirements, anticipated tax advantages that either side is or should be asking for? There are two sets of issues in this proposed slaughterhouse deal. One has to do with the ultimate merits of the deal and Ò investmentÓ costs and presumed returns to the Town and its partners. The other concerns the ability of our leaders to avoid budget cutting any current expenses (trans., jobs) or any expected tax revenues (trans., more jobs). Almost half of America (that is eligible to work) either has chosen not to work or else is gainfully employed at $10 or less per hour. One of every four Americans is working poor. Almost one out of every three — 100 million Americans — are on one or another dole at any one time. In this age of uncertainty, however, who can trust anything he is told? One thing in life is a sure bet, however. Whatever the numbers are for America, they are going to be worse for Ticonderoga. One implication of these numbers is that the economic trends are working against us. If ever there was a time to have a professional economic development team on the ground, this is it. If ever there was a time to protect the vision and be diligent in avoiding consequences of investing in the wrong deal, this would be that moment. Town leaders are geared to function from the heart (if not political fear) and will be reluctant to cut any jobs. Many friends and neighbors voted for them to protect the unspoken covenant to deploy local government as the employer of last resort. A two percent carve-out would be enough to assure a real economic development initiative, but would cost the Town some number of operating jobs to attain. With 2 percent set-aside for the future (think, our children), that leaves 98 percent to manage through today. What we know about creating jobs is that youÕ ve got to be willing to invest long-term dollars (think, 10-20 years) to create a sufficiently safe place, complete with storied opportunity, that will attract the right capital, ideas, investors, jobseeking families. What I know about 10-20 years is that they are here and gone tomorrow. Having shown some heart, it is, now, essential that our leaders demonstrate equal amounts of courage and perspicacity to match their heartfelt instincts to duck for cover. A failure of the town to fund the long-term operating core economic development team will result, like earlier half efforts, in failing to respond to the great challenge of their day and to seize the other opportunities that might have been. Alex Levitch is chairman emeritus of the Ticonderoga Revitalization Alliance.

Ti mulls trash station’s future Current system lost $29,000 last year

said. Ò WeÕ re taking in less trash, but our expenses have remained about the same. The (town) board has decided to look at alternatives, for ways to save money there.Ó In the past year Ticonderoga has raised its disposal fee from 10 cents a pound to 15 cents and started allowing people to pay by check at the transfer station. Those moves have done little to TICONDEROGA — Ticonderoga officials are searching for ways to stem the flow of red ink at the town trash transfer sta- offset the financial loses, Malaney said.

With that in mind, trustees have requested proposals from private solid waste companies that may be inwaste system, was designed to be self-supporting, but it cost loterested in taking over the Ti trash station. Ticonderoga owns cal taxpayers $29,000 last year, according to Deb Malaney, town its trash station, although Essex County owns the equipment at supervisor. the site. Ò More and more people are contacting with private haulers, Malaney pointed out neighboring Washington County has ACE and Casella, that provide door-to-door service,Ó Malaney privatized its solid waste operations. Ò John LaPointe (Putnam supervisor) called me and we discussed the situation in Washington County,Ó Malaney said. Ò He suggested several companies that may provide the same or better services.Ó Putnam is in Washington County. Ò This is all in the discussion stage; no decisions have been made,Ó Malaney said. Ò The town board has an obligation to provide services for the least amount of money possible.Ó Privatizing TiconderogaÕ s trash disposal system may help the town budget, but it could be costly to Ti residents. A private contractor could increase disposal fees charged to users. Ò WeÕ ve heard from companies who think weÕ re charging too much now,Ó Malaney said. Ò They seem to think they could make a profit by charging less and cutting expenses.Ó Malaney said the town board would protect residents by deLyle Jonas and Romona Bowling dance during the annual Hague Oktoberfest.

It attracted hundreds of visitors. its prices before agreeing to any Photo by Nancy Frasier contract to privatize the transfer station operation. Cutting expenses is another option being considered by the town board. The town could keep the transfer station and reduce its hours and/or its personnel. There are currently three full-time town employees at the transfer station five days a week. Malaney is not in favor of cutting any jobs, but believes a transfer station worker could be moved to another town department. Ò WeÕ re also looking at the cost of upgrading the operation ourselves to find out if it could be cost-effective to run it ourselves without Essex County,Ó Malaney said. Ò WeÕ re starting to prepare the new (2014) budget and we have to look at all departments, everything in town government, to see where we may save money,Ó Malaney said. Ò This is part of that review.Ó One thing is certain, though. Ò There will be a transfer station there,Ó Malaney said. Ò I donÕ t know if it will be privatized, if it will be part of the county system, if weÕ ll do it ourselves. These are questions we are still investigating and studying. One thing for sure is that weÕ ll have a place for people to take their trash.Ó

Ticonderoga officials to trim ‘wish list’ Supervisor wants 2014 budget to meet tax cap By Fred Herbst TICONDEROGA — Ticonderoga officials have submitted their Ò wish list,Ó now itÕ s time for serious work on the town’s 2014 budget. “We’re also gearing up for the 2014 budget season,Ó Supervisor Deb Malaney said. Ò The (state-imposed) 2 percent tax cap is a very tight margin so we have to keep operational costs as low as possible. ItÕ s a struggle to keep services going, taxes down and people working, but weÕ ve stayed within the cap since the governor implemented it.Ó The tax cap allows little growth in spending. In 2014 Ti will be allowed to increase its general fund spending about $20,000 and its highway spending about $10,000, Malaney reported. Municipalities are allowed to exceed the tax cap by approving a local law, but Malaney

doesnÕ t want to consider that possibility. Ò I am adamant about staying within the cap limits,Ó the supervisor said, Ò but if the majority of the town board wanted to exceed the cap, they could do so by passing a local law to override the tax cap during the budget cycle, prior to the adoption of the annual budget. Some towns pass the override as a protection mechanism, but still stay at the 2 percent cap. The cap is an effective influence on municipal spending.” Staying within the tax cap has meant some difficult choices for Ti officials. Ò WeÕ ve had about seven positions vacated over the last three years and have not replaced them,Ó Malaney said. Ò Silver Bay taking over the youth program saved the town about $60,000 annually and consolidating the health insurance plan saved $30,000.” Town department heads have submitted their 2014 budget requests to the town board. Now the board will schedule a series of workshops and trim those requests before adopting a final budget.

Ò The tentative budget is the initial budget containing estimates submitted by department heads Ñ I call it Ô the wish listÕ ,Ó Malaney said. Ò Once the tentative budget is reviewed and modified by the town board, it becomes the preliminary budget and must be filed with the town clerk. Following a public hearing in No-

vember, the annual budget must be adoption by Nov. 20.” Malaney encourages Ticonderoga residents to take part in the budget process. Ò The public is welcomed and encouraged to attend the budget meetings and can get budget copies from the town clerk,Ó she said.

Ticonderoga From page 1 is given to the senior veterans who are World War II survivors, along with those veterans who may be terminally ill. The veterans left Plattsburgh Airport following a ceremony that included military, police, firefighters, Boy Scouts, veterans groups and politicians. Ò Today you will experience, and already have since early this morning, bugle calls, crowds cheering you, service men and women saluting you, motorcycles rolling thunder, police escorts, flashing lights, flags waving, tears flowing, handshakes and hugs, fire trucks with air horns blasting, a reception when your honor flight aircraft lands at BWI (Baltimore-Washington International Airport) — and in a few short hours you will arrive in Washington, D.C., at your memorial,Ó Danny Kaifetz, North Country Honor Flight executive director, told veterans prior to leaving. “All the crowds, the flag waving, the hugs and handshakes and salutues and motorcycles and fire trucks, the tears and the joy, all of which is something I hope you will never forget, but you know what?Ó Kaifetz said. Ò That is just the interest on the debt this country has owed you for 68 years.Ó Each veteran was given a North Country Honor Flight jacket with his name, a shirt and hat. Each was also assigned a guardian to assist in any way needed. DiFebboÕ s guradian was Kaylee Couture of Dannemora. Ò What a sweet girl,Ó DiFebbo said. Ò She was so kind, so wonderful. Ò The wonderful care, guidance and attention given to us by our guardians was so impressive,Ó he said. Ò They deserve a medal. They guided us through the cheering crowds everywhere and kept us so upbeat. It was humbling to have people everywhere treat us with honor and respect and reach out to us with their thank yous.Ó While in Washington the group toured the World War II memorial, visited the Iwo Jima monument, toured Arlington Cemetery and witnessed the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The veterans were honored with a dinner at an American Legion Post before returning home. On the the flight home each vetersn was given was package of thank you letters written by area students. DiFebbo, age 87, graduated from Ticonderoga High School and was drafted in 1944. After basic training at Fort Bragg, N.C., he was assigned to the 99th Infantry Division. He shipped out to Europe aboard the Queen Elizabeth in a snow storm. He eventually found his way to Belgium Ñ and the famed Battle of the Bulge. Out of site of the enemy, artillery units sent forward observers to the front line to direct their fire. It’s considered one of the most hazardous jobs in war. DiFebboÕ s job was to string communications wire from forward observers back to the men firing the guns located a few miles away. “That was the first time I’d ever seen guys all shot up,” DiFeb-

Ò It was so cold and everyone had cold feet. Those Army boots were worthless.Ó The Battle of the Bulge was GermanyÕ s last offensive of the war. It began Dec. 16, 1944, and ended Jan. 25, 1945. Fought in bitter cold and snow in the densely-forested Ardennes Mountains region of Belgium, American troops were pummeled by German artillery. With over 800,000 men committed and over 19,000 Americans killed, the Battle of the Bulge was the single largest and bloodiest battle American forces fought in World War II. Ò I wasnÕ t there at the very beginning of the Bulge,Ó DiFebbo said. Ò I was a replacement. I saw enough, though... “I never felt scared,” he added. “I was 18. I didnÕ t know enough to be scared, but let me tell Tony DiFebbo, a World War II veteran from Ticonderoga, poses with his guardian, Kaylee ya Ñ you sure as hell took cover when you heard Couture, prior to making a North Country Honor Flight to Washington, D.C. that artillery.Ó DiFebboÕ s unit advanced and eventually taking a job with the Ticonderoga Power Company.

Ò IÕ ll always remember May 8,Ó DiFebbo said. Ò It was a snowstorm, I think it snowed the whole time I was over there. We were huddled together in a (fox) hole trying to stay warm and we got word Germany had surrendered. Just like that, it was over, but we were really happy.Ó DiFebbo stayed in Germany until July when he was assigned to the 4th Infantry Division and started training for combat against Japan in the Pacific. Before being sent to the Pacific, DiFebbo was given a 30-day leave to visit Ticonderoga. While he was at home, the United States dropped the atomic bomb and Japan surrendered Aug. 14. Ò That was quite a day,Ó DiFebbo recalled. Ò There were church bells, whistles blew, people were in the streets.

Moriah repairs Westport dam at North Pond Century-old deal makes Moriah responsible By Fred Herbst WESTPORT Ñ ItÕ s on private property. ItÕ s in the town of Westport. So why did the town of Moriah repair a dam at North Pond? The answer lies in a century-old agreement. Water from North Pond, which is located in a remote area in the town of Westport on private land now owned by Lyme Timber, at one time fed Bartlett Pond in Mineville, which is the town of Moriah water supply, Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafava explained. An agreement between the two towns, reached about 100 years ago, made Moriah responsible for the maintenance of a dam at North Pond in exchange for water rights. An inspection of the dam by the state Department of Envi-

Hospice plans memorial service PORT HENRY Ñ High Peaks Hospice & Palliative Care will hold a special memorial service to honor the memory of those the agency served and who died between Jan. 1 and June 30, 2013. The service will be Thursday, Oct. 17, at 6 p.m. the Port Henry Knights of Columbus, 72 South Main St. People are asked to RSVP by Oct. 10. For more information call 942-6513. Each person will be remembered by name and loved ones are invited to light a candle in their memory. The service will include readings and music with light refreshments immediately following. Ò With this fall High Peaks Hospice & Palliative Care service, we are extending a special invitation to other members of the community who have suffered a loss,Ó said Cam Brown of hospice. Ò All are warmly welcomed to attend the memorial service and time will be allowed for their remembrances also.Ó High Peaks Hospice and Palliative Care is a rural, not-forprofit health care corporation, certified and licensed by New York State. Hospice is composed of a caring team of professionals and volunteers who provide the full range of quality hospice services, primarily in the home, to all terminally ill individuals and their families in portions of Franklin and Hamilton counties and all of Warren and Essex counties. Hospice provides physical care, emotional support and education to the entire family regardless of age, gender, nationality, race, creed, sexual orientation, disability, diagnosis or ability to pay.

ronmental Conservation last year showed repairs were needed. Moriah no longer uses North Pond as part of its water supply, but DEC demanded action from the town. “North Pond dam has significant concrete deterioration, displaced stones and significant leakage through the dam,” Donald Canestrari, a DEC engineer, wrote to Scozzafava. Ò The water from the impoundment does not pass over the spillway, but passes through the dam as leakage.Ó The dam is located three miles away from the nearest roadway, making it difficult to access with heavy equipment. That remote location helped drive the estimated cost of the project to $250,000 — for a dam not in the town of Moriah, not used by the town and not owned by the town. Scozzafava asked Jamie Wilson, Moriah highway superinten-

dent, if his department could do the work at the dam cheaper than hiring a construction firm. The answer was a resounding, Ò Yes!Ó Using Moriah highway workers and equipment, the dam was repaired for $16,000. Ò It was a good project,Ó Wilson said. Ò We constructed a new spillway at the dam and met all the DEC requirements.Ó Wilson praised Dominick Fontana of the DEC for working with the town on the project. Scozzafava praised Wilson. Ò This was going to cost our taxpayers a quarter of a million dollars,” the supervisor said. “This man (Wilson) went up there and saved us a lot of money.Ó

Moriah From page 1 The new dam can be manually opened and closed during future storms to prevent flooding. Ò ItÕ s something weÕ ll monitor during major storms,Ó Wilson said of the new dam. Ò If thereÕ s a need to open it and lower the water level we can do it now. That should solve our problem with flooding on Bartlett Pond Road.Ó Pictured at right: Construction on a new dam at Bartlett Pond is expected to be completed this month. The barrier will replace an old dam that failed twice in recent years — during Tropical Storms Irene and Lee. Those failures led to flooding that washed away a portion of nearby Bartlett Pond Road.

Crown Point snack bar ‘Suzies’ thriving

CROWN POINT Ñ After years of looking at a vacant building, Suzie Sadowski decided it was time to do something. The result — Suzies, a snack bar located at 3362 Route 9N just north of the Crown Point hamlet. Ò The place looked pretty empty for a long time,Ó Sadowski said. Ò I just decided it was time to do something with it.Ó Sadowski opened Suzies in July and has enjoyed a successful summer. Open 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday and noon to 8 p.m. Sunday, Suzies will close for the season in mid-October. People can call Suzies at 597-4030 to place orders. Suzies offers a wide variety of food Ñ home cut French fries, grilled kielbasa, turkey legs, michigan hamburgers, michigan hot dogs, wacky fries, onion rings, chicken fingers and more. It also sells ice cream. This fall Sadowski has added pizza and chicken wings to the menu. Ò I thought the pizza and wings would be a good addition for the fall,Ó she said. Ò People seem to like them.Ó The Suzies location has a long history as a snack bar. Though vacant the past six years, the building was once home to Mountain View Snack Bar, a long-standing Crown Point landmark operated by Gloria Tubbs.

Crown Point salon family friendly CROWN POINT Ñ RebeccaÕ s Hair Salon is about much more than hair care. ItÕ s a local business based on family. Ò ItÕ s family owned and operated and itÕ s family friendly,Ó owner Rebecca LaFountain said. Ò We want people to be comfortable coming here. They can bring their children. My home is their home.Ó Rebecca’s Hair Salon is located at 23 Rock Way in Crown Point. Open 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, appointments can be made by calling 597-3975. The salon offers all types of hair care. It offers senior citizen and civil service discounts. LaFountain has been a stylist off and on since 2001. Ò I decided that I wanted to be a stylist at an early age watching my aunt work from home in her shop,Ó LaFountain said. Ò I love the artistic value and human connection you feel when you help someone feel better about how they look and how it effects how they feel. Ò I told my childhood sweetheart Scott someday I was going to build a house with a salon right in it, have children and work from home,Ó she said. Ò Fifteen years later, board by board Scott and I made it happen. We have three children, Abigail, Jared and just brought Colby home in July. My dream has come true with ScottÕ s help and a lot of love and determination.Ó

Besides being family friendly, the shop has another cause. LaFountain will give a free hair cut to anyone donating to Locks of Love. Ò To say thank you for all my blessings I chose to provide a free haircut service for anyone who chooses to donate the gift of hair to Locks of Love,Ó LaFountain said. Ò I believe that if a person has self confidence in how they look it will effect their confidence in anything they do with positive attitude. It makes me feel good inside to be able to be a part of a healing process, however, small and that the recipient of a wig knows that people out there whom they donÕ t even know wants them to feel beautiful and confident.” Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially-disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada younger than age 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. Most of the children helped by Locks of Love have lost their hair due to a medical condition called alopecia areata, which has no known cause or cure. Pictured at right: Rebecca LaFountain has opened Rebecca’s Hair Salon at 23 Rock Way in Crown Point. Open 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, appointments can be made by calling 597-3975. Photo by Nancy Frasier

University. Every Eagle Scout is required to complete a community service project. Ò My Eagle Scout project was to put thermoplastic grave markers and American flags at veterans graves throughout 10 cemeteries in Schroon Lake and North Hudson,Ó Foote said. Ò Over 500 graves in our area now are permanently recognized. I decided to do this project because the veterans who fought for our country deserve to be honored and I have a close connection with all of the local veterans.Ó Foote credits Schroon veterans Don Sage and Ed Donley with teaching him respect for veterans and the nation. He also thanked Tom Garcia for his help with the Eagle project. The soon-to-be Eagle also acknowledged his scout leaders and parents. His father, Joseph, is now Troop 37 scoutmaster. Ò My dad took over this position from Curtis McCoy, who was my scoutmaster for five years since joining Troop 37,” Foote said.

He was always there for camping trips and activities even though he had no children in our troop. He continues to be an influence to me and hopefully to that scouts that will follow me. “And my mom (Jacqueline) and dad took the time to get me to all the events that I wanted to attend,Ó he added.

Supervisors discouraged with Finch classification proceedings By Andy Flynn RAY BROOK Ñ With 4 minutes left of a two-hour meeting, Adirondack Park Agency (APA) State Lands Committee Chairman Richard Booth crushed local supervisorsÕ hopes of a wild forest classification for the Essex Chain Lakes in the Central Adirondacks, even though a decision has yet to be made. Ò My opinion may be extreme and I may end up being in a very distinct minority,Ó Booth said. Ò IÕ ve looked at this enough, folks, to think that a wild forest classification, in my opinion, is not appropriate for this chain of lakes because of what the Master Plan says in terms on nondegredation and in terms of preserving the resources.Ó In his final remarks, Booth spoke to the APA Board of Commissioners and staffers who were answering Board membersÕ questions regarding the former Finch, Pruyn company land. Ò This is a sensitive group of resources,Ó Booth said. Ò I think thatÕ s what weÕ re hearing from you guys in multiple ways. These are very small ponds. TheyÕ re really ponds. TheyÕ re not really lakes for the most part. So I would urge staff to think about some memo that comes through us.Ó The memo Booth requested should clearly state the ramifications of classification based on the State Land Master Plan, which is a set of approved guidelines for using state-owned lands in the 6-million-acre Adirondack Park. “I think the State Land Master Plan actually has more specificity to it than what we generally have been talking about ... I think weÕ re going to need a memo that says basically, this is what the Master Plan says, the most important factors in terms of classification,” Booth said. “If the Agency designates most of this as wilderness, these are the implications in terms of uses and what would have to be removed in terms of things being there on an existing basis.Ó The memo, according to Booth, should look at the language of the plan in terms of the restrictions it places on the APAÕ s eventual decision. Ò The overall guideline in the Master Plan is that the resources not be degraded,Ó Booth said. Ò That is the basic bottom line requirement in the classification process. And I think before we do this, we need an analysis that basically lays out what the mandates are of the plan and what the choices are regarding wilderness, primitive, canoe and wild forest.Ó

Local reaction

Four town supervisors from the five-town Upper Hudson Recreation Hub were in the audience at APA Headquarters in Ray Brook watching the State Lands Committee meeting. They all support a wild forest designation of the Essex Chain Lakes, asserting that it will draw more users to the region, therefore more tourism dollars, because a wild forest classification is less restric-

tive than a wilderness classification. In wild forest, for example, motorized traffic such as mountain bikes, motor boats and automobiles are allowed, based on the unit management plan. No motors are allowed in land classified as wilderness. Sitting together in the audience were town supervisors Sue Montgomery Corey (Minerva), George Canon (Newcomb), Ronald Moore (North Hudson), and Brian Wells (Indian Lake). The only one missing from the Upper Hudson Recreation Hub coalition was Long Lake Supervisor Clark Seaman. The supervisorsÕ reactions to BoothÕ s pro-wilderness speech at the APA meeting were mixed. Moore and Wells refused to comment. Corey put on a brave face but was clearly discouraged. Ò IÕ m the eternal optimist, so I remain hopeful, but itÕ s challenging to remain hopeful,Ó Corey said. Before Canon left the meeting with Wells, carpooling in the Indian Lake supervisorÕ s vehicle, he voiced his opinion of the proceedings. Ò It was pretty good until the end, and then we heard some pretty negative things, particularly from Mr. Booth,Ó Canon said. Ò I obviously didnÕ t agree with his statements, and I hope the rest donÕ t either.Ó Asked if he expected anything different from Booth, the Newcomb supervisor said, Ò No. Not really.Ó Despite BoothÕ s pro-wilderness comments, all hope may not be lost for wild forest proponents. No other State Lands Committee members voiced an opinion on their impending classification decision. The other committee members are Sherman Craig, William Thomas, William Valentino and Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Region 5 Director Robert Stegemann. In addition, Booth has a history of voting his conscience, no matter how unpopular. For example, he was the only APA Board member to vote against the Adirondack Club and Resort project in 2011. The vote was 10-1. The Newcomb supervisor thinks a decision on the Essex Chain Lakes classification should come sooner rather than later. Ò IÕ m hoping theyÕ ll make that decision next month, so we can get on with this business,Ó Canon said. That decision, however, may not come until November at the earliest. Most State Lands Committee members said they needed more answers from staff before the real debate got under way, and an October decision is unlikely. The APA held a series of eight public hearings this past summer to collect comments for state land classification alternatives for the former Finch, Pruyn lands. The classification proposals involve lands in the towns of Minerva and Newcomb, Essex County and the town of Indian Lake, Hamilton County. Members of the Upper Hudson Recreation Hub favor a wild forest classification of all 69,000 acres of former Finch land, including the Boreas Ponds Tract, which has not yet been purchased by the state.

Tracts of land

Below are the tracts of land currently up for classification at the APA. •The Essex Chain of Lakes and Hudson River: With 11 lakes and ponds interconnected or within portaging distance of each other, the Essex Chain will provide a canoe route and a much anticipated paddling experience. A long history of fish stocking that includes brook trout and landlocked salmon will ensure outstanding fishing. A five-mile stretch of the Hudson River runs along the east side of the Essex Chain parcel, completing an uninterrupted, Ò forever wildÓ stretch. The Essex Chain tract provides opportunities for hunting, day rafting, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, overnight river trips, and camping. •Indian River Tract, Towns of Indian Lake and Minerva, Hamilton and Essex counties: One of the most exciting and popular whitewater rafting experiences in the Adirondacks starts on the Indian River and continues for nearly 15 miles down the Hudson River Gorge. The addition of this 940-acre tract to the Forest Preserve will preserve this wild experience for future generations. The tract is critical to enhancing rafting operations that draw over 25,000 people annually to this region. •OK Slip Falls, Town of Indian Lake, Hamilton County: OK Slip Falls is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the Adirondack Park and part of a 2,800-acre property that will soon be made available to the public for outdoor recreational pursuits. The tract contains 2.1 miles of the Hudson River, the Blue Ledges, the Hudson River Gorge, as well as Carter, Blue Ledge and Pug Hole Ponds. This area is home to more rare and significant mosses and liverworts than any other site in the Adirondack Park. This parcel is located within the Hudson River Gorge Primitive Area which is proposed for reclassification to a Wilderness Area.

The Week In Sports

Cameron Wright added a 31-yard TD burst and Michael Graney scored on a yard plunge in the third period as Ti built a 35-6 advantage. Ticonderoga dominated the line of scrimmage, running for 381 yards while holding Saranac Lake to 102. Granger and Wright led the way. Granger ran for 203 yards and three TDs on 19 carries.

Saranac raced to a 14-0 lead before Moriah showed signs of life. A 38-yard TD pass from Gaddor to Tyler Pratt got Moriah on the board and Gaddor hit Garnica for the conversion to make it a 14-8 game. After Saranac extended it lead to 22-8, Moriah answered with a yard TD run by C.J. Raymond to trail 22-14 at the half. Raymond, who ran for 88 yards on the day, added a 5-yard touchdown run in the third period and Gaddor again hit Garnica for the conversion to knot the tilt in the third quarter. That set the stage for Gaddor and Garnica to hook up in the game’s final minute.

OBTAIN ADVICE ON HOW TO PROTECT Y O U R S E L F . SOURCES OF INFORMATION AND ASSISTANCE. The State encourages you to become informed about your options in foreclosure. In addition to seeking assistance from an attorney or legal aid office, there are government agencies and non-profit organizations that you may contact forinformation about possible options, including trying to work with your lender during this process. To locate an entity near you, you may call the toll-free helpline maintained by the New York State Banking Department at 1-877-226-5697 or visit the Department's website at FORECLOSURE RESCUE SCAMS Be careful of people who approach you with offers to "save" your home. There are individuals who watch for notices of foreclosure actions in order to unfairly profit from a homeowner's distress. You should be extremely careful about any such promises and any suggestions that you pay them a fee or sign over your deed. State law requires anyone offering such services for profit to enter into a contract which fully describes the services they will perform and fees they will charge, and which prohibits them from taking any money from you until they have completed all such promised services.
