By Fred Herbst SCHROON LAKE Ñ Jeff Subra grew up in Iowa, so heÕ s seen the damage left behind by tornadoes. That didnÕ t prepare him for what he saw following Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. Ò IÕ ve seen the devastation caused by tornadoes,Ó the Schroon Lake man said. Ò But this was unbelievable. Miles and miles of total destruction.Ó Subra, a registered nurse, went to the Philippines as part of relief team sent by the Christian Medical & Dental Association. The Bristol, Tenn.-based group has rotated teams in-and-out of the Philippines every two weeks since the disaster hit Nov. 8, killing more than 6,000 people and leveling entire communities. Subra, a former Moses-Ludington Hospital nurse in Ticonderoga, was part of a seven-member team that provided health care to residents of the Tocloban area, which is located on the Philippine island of Leyte. Ò Arriving in Manila you would never know there had been a typhoon,Ó Subra said. Ò Once we got to Tacloban our eyes were wide open. The roads were lined CONTINUED ON PAGE 17

Ti to get second opinion on water project



Schroon Lake defeats Keene, Crown Point.

New Supervisor Bill Grinnell, who made the water project a central part of his campaign for office, asked the town board to reconsider the project in his first meeting. Grinnell is joined on the five-member town board by two other newcomers, trustees Chattie Van Wert and Fred Hunsdon. They join incumbents Wayne Taylor and Dave Iuliano. Ò The water project was certainly a big part of my campaign,Ó Grinnell said. Ò A lot of people voted for me be-

Grinnell wants another firm, Jarrett Engineers of Glens Falls, to take a look and make recommendations. The town board agreed to seek a proposal from Jarrett during its organizational meeting.

Kiwanis contest looks toward spring Benefit asks people to guess when Ti reaches 55 degrees By Fred Herbst TICONDEROGA Ñ Spring may be a distant hope for most area residents, but the Ticonderoga Kiwanis are thinking about warm weather. The Kiwanis are now selling tickets for their annual Ò Win at 55Ó contest. Participants are asked to guess the date and time the temperature in Ticonderoga will reach 55 degrees. Ò This is one of our major fund raisers for the club,Ó said Bob

Dedrick of the Kiwanis. Ò Tickets have been distributed to all Kiwanis members and we are having sales at Stewarts.Ó Tickets are $5 each. Ò The person coming closest to guessing the day and hour that the air temperature reaches 55 degrees after Feb. 28 will win $500 with second and third prizes of $300 and $200, respectfully,Ó Dedrick said. The temperature will be measured at the weather station located at the Downing residence on The Portage in Ticonderoga. Proceeds from the contest will assist the Kiwanis in community projects. Ò The Ticonderoga Kiwanis is a thriving organization of men, women and youth, who are dedicated to serving children and improving the quality of life,Ó Dedrick said. Ò One of our mis-

sions calls each of us to provide, through our club, a practical means to form and foster enduring friendships, to render altruistic service, and to build a better community. Ò In our quest to reach this mission we have championed, in whole or part, many projects,Ó he said. Ò Some of our projects have included the Percy Thompson Memorial Park, including the playground, the gazebo and many park benches, the Ticonderoga municipal beach, senior citizens holiday luncheon, Easter egg hunt, high school/middle school bridge building contest, and a sponsor of a Little League team. Ò But we need help,Ó he said. Ò We are able to help our communities through many fund raiser endeavors. With your help the Kiwanis club can continue to accomplish its mission.Ó

Comments sought on proposed regulations DEC expects to have rules in place this year TICONDEROGA Ñ The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has posted online for public comment its proposed regulations to help stop the transport of aquatic invasive species. The new regulations would make it illegal to launch at a DEC site without having first removed all visible plant and/or animal material and having drained all water from the boat. The new regulations would also make it illegal to leave from a launch site without having done the same as well. The proposed regulations will allow DEC law enforcement staff to ticket any user of DEC boat launch facilities that does not drain a watercraft and remove any visible plants and animals attached to it, the trailer or associated equipment prior to launching at or leaving the site. The penalty for violating this regulation is imprisonment for not more than 15 days or a fine of not more than $250, or both fine and imprisonment. In part, the proposed rules read: Ò No person shall launch, or attempt to launch a watercraft from a state boat launching site, a fishing access site, or any other site from which a watercraft may be launched, or leave from these sites with any plant or animal, or parts thereof, visible to the human eye, in, on, or attached to any part of the watercraft, including live wells and bilges, the motor, rudder, anchor or other appurtenants; any equipment or gear; or the trailer or any other device used to transport or launch a watercraft that may come into contact with the water, unless a written permit is obtained from the department. Ò No person shall launch, or attempt to launch a watercraft from a state boat launching site, a fishing access site, or any other site from which a watercraft may be launched, or leave from these sites without draining the watercraft, including bilge areas, live wells, bait wells and ballast tanks, unless a written permit is obtained from the department.Ó The entire proposed regulation is available online at The comment period is open through Feb 24. ItÕ s expected the DEC will have this new regulation in place for the 2014 boating season.

Shooting gallery now open to public Whitehall Athletic Club’s indoor range available WHITEHALL Ñ Gun enthusiasts can practice their sport in comfort this winter. The Whitehall Athletic Club at the Armory has opened its shooting gallery to the public. Ò ItÕ s the original shooting gallery built in 1899,Ó Greg Gross, owner, said. Ò The range has been totally refurbished and modernized. WeÕ re open for business.Ó The gallery, which is open to both pistol and rifle owners, has three stations. Ò All shooting is done under the supervision of a professional range master,Ó Gross said. Ò We have two professional range masters, one former military and one active military, who are both qualified in supervision and instruction.” The club has several .22 rifles the public can use or people can bring their own weapons and ammunition. People bringing their own weapons must show proper permits and licenses. The shooting gallery is open Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday by appointment. People are asked to call the club at 499-0134 a day in advance to schedule a time. The cost is $20 an hour. Gross said people can use the gallery three times before being asked to join the Whitehall Athletic Club. Annual dues at the club are $575. Once a person is a member there is no charge

for use of the shooting range, other than ammunition unless they bring their own. Membership also gives people access to the club’s other facilities — a fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment, locker rooms, a steam room, golf course, a ballroom, a bar and a restaurant. The Whitehall Athletic Club at the Armory is located at 62 Poultney St. in Whitehall. For information call 499-0134 or go online at www. The club also hosts boxing, wrestling, mixed martial arts and other events. Gross, a resident of Tuxedo Park, owns and operates a wholesale insurance business in Paramus, N.J. After selling two other insurance agencies in New York City in 2009, he began investing the proceeds from those sales. His other investments include a farm in Hubbardton, Vt., and the Highline Lodge, a 1960s chalet in Killington, Vt. Gross became a Whitehall developer after he bought a 67-acre parcel on the Mettawee River to grow hay for the beef cattle on the Vermont farm. Then he got the idea to build a golf course. Ò The idea was to play golf while the hay was drying,Ó he said. That project evolved into a plan to turn the Gray Lane property into the Whitehall Field Club. In need of a clubhouse Gross learned the Whitehall Armory was going up for auction. He purchased it for $165,000 in September 2011.

Lake George committee eyed in Ticonderoga By Fred Herbst TICONDEROGA Ñ Local residents are being asked to take an active role in protecting Lake George. A Water Quality Awareness Committee is being formed in Ticonderoga. The panels, which are being formed in communities bordering the lake, work with the FUND for Lake George and the Lake George Waterkeeper program. Ò Through this outreach program, The FUND is looking to form a circle of protection around the lake by engaging each lake front community in its protection through education and other initiatives that would change behaviors that have an adverse affect on the lake,Ó Chattie Van Wert, a Ticonderoga town board member and executive director of the Ticonderoga Revitalization Alliance, said. Ò I am looking for involvement, or names of people who might be willing to be involved in forming and/or participating in a committee here in Ticonderoga,Ó she said. Ò Lake George is vital to our quality of life at so many levels from drinking water to recreation and tourism, so I encourage each person to consider becoming involved or suggesting someone who might be willing to help.Ó A Water Quality Awareness Committee formed last year in Hague. Ò These committees have formed and are forming in communities all around the lake,Ó Ginger Kuenzel, a member of the Hague town board and the communityÕ s WQAC, said. “They are definitely gaining momentum and raising awareness among residents and visitors of the need to protect Lake George. They provide information about what individuals can

do to help protect the lake and how they can become more involved. Each individual awareness committee selects its own projects to focus on. We network with each other and share information and ideas.Ó Based in Lake George village, the FUND for Lake George is a not-for-profit, privately-funded organization dedicated to the protection of Lake George and its surrounding communities. The Lake George Waterkeeper program, a service of the FUND for Lake George, responds to all public inquiries and acts as an ombudsman on issues relating to Lake George and its watershed. Ò Under the guidance of the FUND for Lake George and the Lake George Waterkeeper program, and formed of residents of geographical communities and associations around the lake, the Water Quality Awareness Committees will individually and collaboratively create a ring of protection around Lake George, and become community educators and powerful advocates for the protection and sustainability of the lakeÕ s water quality,Ó according to a statement from the FUND for Lake George. Ò WQACs are working in their own communities to identify and resolve direct threats to the water quality of Lake George, including but not limited to on site wastewater treatment systems, fertilizer and pesticide applications within the watershed, invasive species and from hardscapes and land use practices and protocols that contribute to damaging stormwater runoff,Ó the statement reads. Kunzel said the Hague Water Quality Awareness Committee had success in 2013. It participated in the Ò Adirondack LawnÓ sign program, which places a small sign on lawns of residents who have fertilizer- and pesticide-free lawns;

Tobacco customers should be 21 or older


hereÕ s still time to make a pair of important New YearÕ s health resolutions. Smokers should make every effort to quit. Society should make every attempt to prevent people from starting to smoke Ñ including raising the minimum age to purchase tobacco from 18 to 21. WeÕ ve known the dangers of smoking for years, but a milestone this month should serve to remind us smoking kills. It was 50 years ago this month a landmark U.S. Surgeon GeneralÕ s report that linked smoking with bad health was issued. It was the first time Americans were told directly smoking kills. The government has updated the report 32 times in the five decades since. Those reports, along with the work of doctors and other health professionals, have made an impact. In 1965, 42 percent of the population smoked. Today, 19 percent of Americans do, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The CDC claims government anti-smoking efforts have saved 8 million lives. ThatÕ s wonderful progress, but work remains to be done. An estimated 43.8 million Americans still smoke and experts claim the decline in smoking has plateaued. People arenÕ t quitting anymore. Smoking remains the No. 1 cause of preventable death in the United States. It kills more people than obesity, substance abuse, infectious disease, firearms and traffic accidents, according to the CDC. About 443,000 Americans die from smoking-related illnesses every year, according to the U.S. Department of Health. Americans know smoking kills. ItÕ s becoming more and more socially unacceptable. ItÕ s expensive. ItÕ s banned in most public places. Yet millions continue to do it. Why? A combination of psychological and biological factors are to blame, according to scientists. Ò The chemicals in cigarettes work on the structures deep within a smokerÕ s brain, literally rewiring it so the habit becomes deeply ingrained,Ó Jed Rose, the director of the Duke Center for Smoking Cessation in North Carolina, said in a recent CNN report. Ò Every move a smoker makes: the lighting of the cigarette, the inhaling, all the feelings and sensations of it, the whole package becomes highly addictive.Ó Most smokers believe its easy to quit Ñ before they actually try to stop, according to scientists. Ò Ultimately, they will lose their capacity to make a free choice to smoke,Ó Rose said. Ò Then 30 years later, thatÕ s when we typically see them in our program desperately trying to quit, because now they canÕ t go a single day without (a cigarette).Ó The World Health Organization has termed tobacco a Ò gradual killer.Ó It notes many young people start to smoke believing they can stop before suffering ill effects. While itÕ s never too late to quit, quitting is often much tougher than simply recognizing the problem. Avoiding cigarettes all together is the best way to steer clear of tobacco-related addiction and illness. That means keeping them away from children and young people, which is the reason many are calling for an increase in the legal age to 21 to purchase cigarettes. New York City had already taken that action. Some New York counties Ñ Nassau and Suffolk on Long Island Ñ have raised the legal age for purchasing cigarettes to 19. New York State should follow their lead. If not, local governments should. While tobacco advertising has been banned on television and the dangers of cigarettes have become well known, temptation remains. Several studies show tobacco marketing and advertising works and increases the likelihood that youth will start smoking. In 2011, cigarette companies spent $8.37 billion on ads and promotional expenses in the United States alone, according to the CDC. That breaks down to about $23 million a day or $27 for every American per year. Tobacco use is an issue everyone should care about Ñ smokers and non-smokers. ItÕ s expensive for everyone. Smoking cost the United States more than $193 billion a year, according to the CDC, including $97 billion in lost productivity and $96 billion in direct health care expenditures. ThatÕ s an average of $4,260 per adult smoker. ItÕ s a price we all pay. Ñ

Another side to minimum wage debate To the Times of Ti:

There are, no doubt, many valid reasons to want to raise the minimum wage for working families. But it might make sense to look a little more deeply at the issue, in order to avoid the unintended consequences that have plagued so much recent legislative caprice and posturing in our state and in our nation. Working families are already aided by the Earned Income Tax Credit, which constitutes a de facto raise in the minimum wage, not to mention all the other forms of public assistance that have proliferated while the minimum wage has allegedly failed to keep pace. More worthy of consideration in the debate is that of the 3 percent of the workforce that works for minimum wage 60 percent earn an increase in the first year. The word “earn” is an important one, which society should not lose as a concept for entrylevel workers. But the most significant fact, that is totally omitted by all parties in this dialogue, is that of these entry-level workers, the majority are students or others, working seasonally and/or part time, who are claimed as dependents from middle income households. I operate a resort and over the years have provided a great number of high school students with their very first work experience. Kids are allowed to begin work when they are 14. Or, perhaps I should say, they are not allowed to begin work until they are 14. Many of them know very little about how to work, when they begin legal employment, and need to be taught a great deal. Although IÕ ve never actually started anyone at the bare minimum wage level, explaining to them that I donÕ t want them to begin work with a minimum wage attitude, I have to say that a lot of kids are just not worth much when they start out. An employer can spend a lot of time getting them shaped up. In some cases, itÕ s a fairly charitable endeavor. I wonder, as the minimum wage is raised, how many people like myself, who have taught these teenagers how to be productive, will be able to continue to afford to do so. And if we donÕ t, then who will? Another government program? Something to instill a government work ethic in young people, who will no longer need to earn their increases? Jon Voorhees Indian Lake

Kudos to Crown Point To the Times of Ti:

In response to a letter submitted to Ò Letters to the EditorÓ by a Ticonderoga resident in the Dec. 28 issue, I must ask, who are you to point fingers at those who stand up for what they believe is in their best interest? Mr. Wray, a study was done, and yes it did cost the tax payers money, well spent money. I read the final results of this study (all 125 pages) on whether or not to have Crown Point merge with Ticonderoga. The study was done by outsiders with no conflict of interest and although I found a few errors, it was concise. Shame on you for not understanding what was at stake for Crown Point citizens. I believe whole heartedly that a merge would be devastating to many tax payers now and have possible negative effects for future possibilities for the education of our children. You somehow believe that a Ò million dollar savingsÓ is possible. In reality it is people like me that end up paying for the debts of TiconderogaÕ s School District. DonÕ t chastise the good people of Crown Point for doing the right thing and kudos to the school board that represents them. Tim Gautreau Hague

To the Times of Ti:

My name is Tim Balonek from Batavia. I am currently working on a book for The Gold Star Soldiers of Genesee County, men that were killed while in service from Korea and Vietnam. I need help finding more information about a man that grew up in Ticonderoga. Here is the information I have Ñ Bernard (Jack) Hall, USMC Pvt April 22, 1937-Aug. 12, 1954 Parents were William H. and Loretta R. Hall of Ticonderoga. Brother George and sisters Frances (Bezio) and Rosemary (Saunders) of Batavia. The family lived in Oakfield for several years. He enlisted in the Marines and took basic training at Parris Island, S.C. He worked on the Mucklands and for A.A. Grinnell Co. Newspaper accounts say Bernard (Jack) Hall was home on leave visiting his sister in Ticonderoga. He was killed in a motor vehicle accident in the Adirondacks. The name of the road listed is Street Road. Other newspaper accounts list that Ruth Covell, a sister, died in 1967 with services held at Wilcox Chapel, Rev. William Groshans officiating. Private Hall is buried in Chilson Cemetery along with his mother and father. For my book I would like a picture of Bernard (Jack) Hall so I can put a face to the name. If anyone has information about Pvt. Hall please contact me at and mention his name in the subject area or call me at 585-344-1342. Tim Balonek Batavia

Trooper lauded To the Times of Ti:

This is in reference to the article placed by Fred Herbst (Nov. 30) regarding the vandalism to the Schroon Lake Fish and Game Club ball field. We the members of the SLFGC thank and greatly appreciate the efforts of NYS Trooper Casey in investigating and apprehending the person responsible for the damage to the little league field at the club. His diligence and perseverance of this incident speaks very favorably of the dedication and community support of our local state troopers. He and his fellow troopers are a great addition and benefit to all of us in the community. Schroon Lake Fish & Game Club Board of Directors

Ti firefighters busy To the Times of Ti: 2013 was a very busy and productive year for the Ticonderoga Fire Department. We responded to 241 emergencies that resulted in 2,321.5 man hours. Our responses included 12 structure fires, 53 motor vehicle accidents, 36 residential and commercial fire alarms, 18 EMS assists, four chimney fires, seven brush/forest fires, four water related rescues and 107 other miscellaneous emergencies. We conducted 58 trainings that produced 2,929 man hours. ThatÕ s over 5,000 man hours in calls and training, not to mention time spent fund raising, meetings, outside department training and other activities. Our average response time was 3 minutes with July as our busiest month with 28 calls, Friday was our busiest day with 42 emergencies and 5:00 in the afternoon was our busiest time of the day. Our average attendance was 12 people per incident and we had nine members with over 100 calls for the year. Eight members completed the NYS Fire Fighter One Class which is 91 hours of training and one member completed the scene support portion of the class which is 27 hours. Many other members attended other State Fire training as well. We were excited to welcome six new regular members and add three new junior members to our great junior firefighter program. Congratulations to all the officers who were re-elected to their positions. Most of all, thank you to all the members who made this year a success. We wish everyone a safe and happy new year and look forward to a great 2014!

IÕ m setting the record straight Ð again. Back in 2000 we had only looked at the house #16 Baldwin Road Ð we never even made an offer on the house at that point. We then received a phone call at the house in Chestertown (where we were living at the time) that we had trespassed on someoneÕ s property with our snowmobile(s) Ð Sorry Incorrect! Snowmobile was in storage at that time and we were living in Chestertown at the time? An over the years the harassment has gone on! So from the beginning, a group of people did not want us to move into the village of Ti? A warning to us I guess? Now for the newest thing people are upset about. The southwest corner of Baldwin Road and Alexandra Ave. Ye where the red dump truck was for sale over the years and a few other things. My understanding is you think this is not on our property. Sorry, incorrect again! Just so you know over the years it has been surveyed a number of times. The railroad has surveyed this, the Hydro Plant did a survey, (Glens Falls firm – I have this survey). A surveyor from Eagle Lake did one (I have this one also), then Pride had it surveyed for the walk bridge over the spillway and the sidewalk project. We also had Mr. Hall do a surveyor from Elizabethtown (have that too). Most people heading east who make the turn onto Baldwin Road from Alexandria Avenue donÕ t even realize they are driving over our property! Yes Ð our property is under the blacktop on that corner! Surprise! Yes the town or county paved over the concrete monument! (No way this is possible!) This monument marker has been used as a reference point for other property and projects surveys for 13-plus years that I am aware of. So if you would like to spend the taxpayers money and my familyÕ s included, go ahead make the town do a new survey again and again. But if you would like to see our survey for free, make an appointment (all the property is posted!) and will be happy to show you phone # is 518-5866369 ask for Richard. If you have something to say to me, then tell me to my face please. And I will be happy to tell you what I think of you to your face. No I will not hide from you. And no I wonÕ t try to run you over with my car like the cowards that have threatened me with your truck and car (most recent in a parking lot last month). You two know who you are. But make an appointment please. You can break my shoes all you want (but please donÕ t go any higher). And just donÕ t mess with my kids. My kids will be happy to talk to you face to face (unlike the cowards that talk behind our backs). And if you donÕ t like where the property markers are, or anything else that is done with any of the properties, then do something about it Ð Buy them all! Then you can do what you want with them. PS Ð to all the people who like to put up signs and throw garbage on the corner we own Ñ stop! You have never asked permission to put up signs, including our newly elected supervisor Bill Grinnell? Yes I tried to call you but youÕ re not in the phone(book), so I took it down! Richard Stonitsch 16 Baldwin Road Ticonderoga NY 12883. PS ~ No IÕ m not one of those people in town who think they are a big shot (by the way you can spell that with an Ò IÓ also). And if you have a hard time pronouncing my last name Ð try astonishing Ð because thatÕ s who I am! Thank you. Richard Stonitsch Ticonderoga

Cuomo: boost education, spur industry, promote biomass — and cut taxes By Thom Randall ALBANY Ñ In a State-of-the-State speech that mixed political grandstanding with charting a course for the future, Gov. Andrew Cuomo proposed borrowing billions of dollars to boost technology in schools, cutting an array of corporate and individual taxes, and strengthening anti-corruption and bribery laws. He also called for legalizing limited medical uses of marijuana, granting bonuses of $20,000 for outstanding teachers, reducing the corporate tax rate to zero for upstate manufacturing businesses, and strengthening punishment for young drivers who text while driving. He also proposed a law that would permanently revoke a driverÕ s license after a third conviction for drunk driving. CuomoÕ s presentation, titled Ò Building on Success,Ó was apparently drafted to set the stage for his re-election campaign Ñ about half his speech touted the achievements of his first term.

Cuomo: Tax cuts will boost prosperity

His tax cut proposals, announced earlier this week, total $2.2 billion. They are aimed at curbing an exodus of people and corporations Ñ concerned about preserving their assets Ñ from the state. He said that whether New Yorkers were wealthy or had modest incomes, they were taxed far too much. Cuomo called for a two-year property-tax freeze for middleclass families, noting that municipal and school taxes, as a proportion of home value, are exceedingly high in upstate New York. In this plan, homeowners who live in municipalities that stay within the 2 percent tax cap will receive a rebate that equals any annual increase in taxes. In addition, he proposed a property tax Ò circuit breakerÓ that would give low and modest-income homeowners a state income tax credit of $1,000 for those earning $120,000 or less. A similar tax credit would be extended to taxpayers whose income was $100,000 or less. Also proposed was raising the threshold of the stateÕ s estate tax, allowing citizens to pass more assets down to their heirs without taxes. Noting that thousands of New Yorkers now move to Florida so they can avoid estate taxes, he proposed raising New YorkÕ s estate tax threshold from $1 million to the current federal level of $5.5 million Ñ and lowering the top tax rate to 10 percent. For manufacturers, Cuomo suggested a zero percent corporate income tax rate for upstate enterprises and a 20 percent corporate property tax credit statewide Ñ both to boost job creation and entice out-of-state and foreign firms to relocate in New York. He also suggested cutting the corporate franchise tax rate from 7.1 to 6.5 percent Ñ and eliminating a utility surcharge tax of 2 percent to boost businessesÕ competitive edge.

Education technology a top priority

In the realm of education, Cuomo proposed borrowing $2

billion for a Smart Schools initiative that would provide computer equipment including servers, wireless networking, digital teaching tools and administrative programs for school districts. It would also equip students with computer tablets and desktop consoles Ñ as well as promoting broadband access throughout communities. Ò The most effective long-term strategy is to have the best education system in the world Ñ period!Ó he said.

Plan to extend pre-k, reward excellence

Cuomo also said full-day pre-kindergarten should be universal throughout New York, adding that the state should bankroll constructing the classrooms needed. Also proposed was boosting the partnership between high schools, colleges, government and employers to prepare students for fulfilling technology careers in-state. Cuomo also said that free tuition to SUNY colleges, 4-year or 2-year, should be extended to high school students who rank in the top 10 percent of their respective classes. Expressing alarm about a downstate case of extreme religious harassment, Cuomo proposed requiring all schools to report incidences of harassment or bullying to a variety of authorities.

Initiatives eyed to increase tourism

Tourism is also to be a focus of economic development in the plan. Rather than requiring outdoor sports enthusiasts to carry separate various hunting, fishing, trapping and boating licenses Ñ and a state parks pass Ñ citizens could have them all appearing as icons on their driversÕ license. Cuomo also announced his plan Ñ without divulging details Ñ to create 50 new Ò outdoor access projectsÓ that would include building new boat launches, erecting hunting blinds and constructing new trails and parking areas.For the state parks, Cuomo calls for computer-automating the reservation, permit and park entry functions. Ò LetÕ s redouble our tourism efforts, because in New York, seeing is believing,Ó he said. Ò Once people come here, theyÕ re hooked.Ó Also, he proposed erecting highway signs Ñ coupled with smartphone apps Ñ that direct people off Interstate routes to local cultural attractions. Ò Our goal is to get tourists off the highways and into our communities to boost local commerce,Ó he said. Cuomo also set a timetable for casino development plans up-

state, calling for bids to be due in June, with sites and gaming operators to be announced by October.

Strategies to help upstate agriculture?

He also suggested holding an Ò Upstate-Downstate Food-toTable Agriculture SummitÓ focused on linking upstate farms and producers with downstate consumers and markets. Following the success of last yearÕ s yogurt summit and beer & wine summit, this new event is intended to identify strategies to boost the use and distribution of local food and beverages in schools and government agencies, increase access to produce in underserved communities, and combat hunger and malnutrition.

Biomass and solar initiatives planned

Also proposed was launching two programs: Renewable Heat NY and BuildSmart NY. The former calls for establishing incentives to encourage municipalities, homeowners and enterprises to heat with biomass fuels including low-grade wood products. The latter is to encourage solar heating by offering incentives for entire neighborhoods adjacent to an existing solar installation to go green. Cuomo said that adopting biomass and solar heat would keep more money recirculating in the state.

Housing, corruption, jobs for veterans

Cuomo also called for tougher anti-corruption laws for public officials and lobbyists, with increased consequences. Under his plan, public officials convicted of public corruption felonies or defrauding the government would be banned from holding any elected or civil office, serving as a registered lobbyist, or doing business with the state. Also proposed was a program to grow businesses owned by disabled veterans Ñ and another to aid former convicts get reestablished in society with decent housing and employment. Cuomo also pledged to boost his existing $1 billion affordable housing construction program by $100 million. Ò Every New Yorker deserves a safe, clean, decent place to live,Ó he said.

Protecting women’s rights also proposed

With a call to resume New YorkÕ s leadership in equality for women, Cuomo proposed stiffened penalties for employers paying men and women differently, prohibiting retaliation against employees who share wage information, and not allowing employers to deny employment or promotions to women who have children. He also is seeking to require reasonable workplace accommodation for pregnant women who are encountering complications. Ò We must stop playing politics with womenÕ s rights and pass the WomenÕ s Equality Act this year,Ó he said. Other initiatives in CuomoÕ s plan include protecting the rights — and fighting the victimization — of individuals with disabilities, instituting measures to curb human trafficking, promote organ donation, and undertaking major renovations to JFK and LaGuardia airports.

Sand/salt use up throughout region

Times of Ti - 11

By Seth Lang TICONDEROGA — Officials throughout the region are using more sand and salt on area roads this winter. An unusual number of ice storms and temperature fluctuations have many local highway departments exhausting their supplies at a rapid pace. Ò The ice storms weÕ ve had this year have demanded a significant more amount of sand and salt than normal snow storms,Ó said Westport Highway Superintendent Dennis Westover. Ò WeÕ ve already used what we did all of last year and thereÕ s still a lot of winter left.Ó The town of Moriah is facing a similar plight, according to Moriah Highway Superintendent Jamie Wilson. Ò WeÕ ve depleted most of our reserve, and still have not received a salt order we placed before Christmas,Ó Wilson said. According to the Essex County Department of Public Works Supervisor Anthony LaVigne, the cost of transportation to the county is compounding the problem. Ò Essex County has the highest cost of transportation because itÕ s the furthest distance from any of the sources,Ó LaVigne said. Livigne pointed out that the county tries to keep at least a 30 percent reserve at all times, maintaining 9,000 - 10,000 yards for an estimated annual use of 6,000 yards. Hamilton County is also having a problem with transportation. Ò WeÕ ve had a problem with our contractor getting salt, but havenÕ t heard anything from the Department of Transportation (DOT) in regards to a shortage of any kind,Ó said Hamilton County Highway Superintendent Tracy Eldridge. Deputy Highway Superintendent of Operations in Warren County Todd Beadnell also mentioned delivery issues in their county. Ò We received a call from the town of Ticonderoga stating theyÕ re having delivery issues with salt,Ó said Beadnell. Ò The county supply is all set, however, we have enough reserve.Ó Like Westport, officials in the Clinton County town of Peru said they also have used an exorbitant amount of sand and salt. Peru Highway Superintendent Michael Farrell said his town has already used more salt and sand than they did all of last year. Ò WeÕ re using a heavier salt mixture due to the icy weather but donÕ t foresee a shortage unless the ice storms persist. We have a salt shed with plenty of reserve,Ó he said. He also stated that he placed an order for salt and received it the next day. Highway officials in another town in Clinton

County also said theyÕ ve used much more in supplies than the last few years. Town of Plattsburgh Highway Superintendent Jim Woods said so far this year theyÕ ve used 623 loads of salt/sand mix to date. That compares to 479 loads in all of last year and 211 the year before. Ò Our crew has 90 hours overtime per man to date this year, which is up from last yearÕ s 50 hours per man. These ice storms have caused problems with

ice build up on our back roads. However, we have plenty of reserve on hand and donÕ t foresee any problems unless winter drags on much longer than usual,Ó Woods said. Through the entire region one thing remains constant; the icy weather has caused an increase in usage on supplies, and if the weather continues, towns could be scraping the bottom of the barrel to keep their roads safe.

Chilson firefighters plan dinner-dance Benefit event Feb. 8 at EMA By Fred Herbst CHILSON Ñ A community tradition will be renewed again this year. The Chilson Volunteer Fire Company will host its 36th annual dinner-dance Saturday, Feb. 8, at the EMA, 9 Maplewood Drive, Ticonderoga. The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. Tickets, priced at $15 each, are available by calling Larry Lauman at 585-9133, Lesli Chandler at 321-2091 or Steve Hunsdon at 585-6823. Chuck Moore and Friends will again provide the music for the dance.

“As always, the evening will feature raffles with lots of valuable prizes along with a delicious dinner served buffet style, with the usual fabulous desserts by members,Ó Stephen Phelps, Chilson FD information officer, said. Ò Proceeds of this yearÕ s dinner dance will go to help Chilson Volunteer Fire Department defray the costs of upgrading our decades-old fire house buildings, which desperately need repairs and renovations over and above what we can accomplish with volunteer labor and donated materials,Ó he said. The fire department is a 501(c)(3) corporation; donations are tax deductible as allowed by law. The Chilson Volunteer Fire Department, with 44 members and 20 qualified active firefighters, serves a 30-square-mile area that also includes Putts Pond

and a large portion of Eagle Lake. Chilson is a part of the town of Ticonderoga, and its fire district includes large tracts of state-owned land. The department is staffed and equipped to provide fire prevention, fire protection and rescue services including vehicle extrications. Chilson firefighters also respond to weather emergencies, clear downed trees from roadways and provide assistance to homebound residents during power outages and other emergencies. The Chilson Community Center at the fire station is owned by the department. Its playing fields and picnic grounds host many community events.

Ticonderoga From page 1 plan to replace the reservoir with tanks, but an inspection discovered problems with the Gooseneck dam and with transmission lines. Gooseneck was designed to serve the entire town, but over time demand exceeded GooseneckÕ s capacity. In 1965 a Lake George water supply was developed for emergency use. Eventually, Lake George water became necessary to meet daily demand. During an inspection the state also found problems at the Baldwin Road filtration plant that handles Lake George water. Ticonderoga then began considering an upgrade of the entire water system, utilizing groundwater sources. The plan to use groundwater proved unpopular with residents in the Chilson area, though. They want to retain water from Gooseneck Pond. Others want to use water from Lake George. The previous town administration said the cost of a groundwater system would be $13.8 million, while the cost of upgrading the Gooseneck and Lake George systems would be $32 million. Grinnell does believe those figures. Ò We need to take another look at this project,Ó the new supervisor said. Ò If a doctor said you needed a heart transplant, youÕ d get a second opinion. Gooseneck and Lake George are the heart of our water system.Ó A groundwater source, a well, has been identified on Street Road. In fact, the town has purchased the land with plans to develop the site. Since that part of the proposed project is already in place, Grinnell said the Street Road well could be used as a secondary or emergency water source. Grinnell agrees Ti needs a water project, but it may not need new sources of water. Ò Our biggest problem is our delivery system,Ó he said. Ò That needs to be upgraded, no question. But do we need groundwater when we have existing sources that are capable of meeting our demands? Ò Everyone has been quick to point out the problems with surface water,Ó he said. Ò There are problems with groundwater, too. We need to fairly discuss the benefits and drawbacks of both sources before we make a decision.Ó There is a misconception in town, Grinnell said, that the state has ordered Ticonderoga to use groundwater. It has not, he said. The state

has ordered an upgrade to the water system, he said. Failure to meet the 2016 state deadline could result in fines of up to $37,000 a day for the town. Grinnell said the project is ongoing. While the source debate may continue, work on the water delivery system will progress, he said. Ò It (the water project) is not on hold,Ó he said. Ò We are proceeding with work, most of it deal-

Since the 1940s, the village and town have faced compliance issues with water quality standards and an aging infrastructure with portions dating back to the 1800s. Information on the project is available on the town website at

Sunny forecast for snowmobile tourism Area residents, officials hope upcoming land classification will expand winter tourism

of them.Ó Taking into account the concerns of environmental groups who have fought to keep the tracts Ò wilderness,Ó Stephens struck a conciliatory tone: Ò Any new connector trails should be multi-use trails for everyone and anyone to share,Ó he said. From mountain-bikers to hikers, he stressed that everyone should take a moderate approach and try to get along Ñ especially considering everyone could pitch in to maintain the trails and keep the environmental footprint at a minimum.

By Pete DeMola SCHROON LAKE Ñ With the biting cold comes winds of optimism brought by the familiar revving of the regionÕ s national mechanical bird, the snowmobile, a siren call that may breathe new life into a region that is eager to showcase one of its most prized assets, its hundreds of miles of snowmobile trails. The North CountryÕ s tourism industry received statewide attention last week when Gov. Andrew Cuomo travelled to Lewis County to launch the first part of a $4.5 million winter tourism campaign designed to promote snowmobiling, skiing and other recreational activities to New York City residents and tourists, an act that local officials, snowmobile organizations and business leaders hope will bring a new injection of tourism to a region struggling to sustain an ailing wintertime economy. Ò This season, we welcome visitors from around the world to experience winter in upstate New York,Ó Cuomo said in a statement. Ò The North Country region is unmatched in its natural beauty and now offers new recreational trails for snowmobiling and a wide variety of other activities for outdoor enthusiasts of all ages to explore.Ó The campaign, which was officially launched in New York City on Jan. 1 with a multi-pronged approach Ñ including full-page color ads in the New York Times featuring snowmobilers soaring over the Manhattan skyline and tailored outreach through social media Ñ follows CuomoÕ s announcement late last year that he intended on approving the Ò preferred alternativeÓ land classification for the Essex Chain of Lakes, which was recently green lighted by the Adirondack Park Agency. SEEDS Cuomo indicated that heÕ d sign off on preferred alternative 2A, a classification that would enable the creation of new snowmobile connector trails on land that has been inaccessible to the public for the past two centuries, something that would not be possible under a fully wilderness classification. Still awaiting classification — a decision that has snowmobile clubs stuck in neutral Ñ is a nearly 22,000 - acre tract of land between Newcomb and North Hudson, the approval of which will open the possibilities for the completion of an important link to snowmobile networks to the west through Long Lake and Indian Lake and to the east through Lake Champlain communities, networks that a wide spectrum of the surrounding areaÕ s inhabitants believe to be vital for the winter economy of the region. The creation of the new snowmobiling trails hinges on when the deal would be approved. The Cuomo administration did not respond to requests from the News Enterprise for a concrete date as of press time, but local officials and snowmobiling organizations seemed pleased with the pending classification and new marketing campaign. STALKS Ò ItÕ s great,Ó said Long Lake Supervisor Clark Seaman. Ò The state wanting to help promote the winter economy is fantastic and the creation of new trails is a win-win for everyone and is potentially huge.Ó Seaman said the town would benefit from a proposed new trail from Indian Lake through the Essex Chain tract that will connect to Newcomb and Minerva. If a trail is on state land, the state has historically been primarily responsible for funding and building trails. Once in place, local municipalities will maintain and groom the trial alongside help from snowmobile associations. According to a state report, there are 10,300 miles of snowmobile trails throughout New York Ñ more than Vermont, New Hampshire and Pennsylvania, and more than Massachusetts and Michigan combined. Since 2011, the state says it has spent more than $11 million for trail maintenance and development for the

stateÕ s 90,000 snowmobiling households. A joint study conducted by Suny-Potsdam and the New York State Snowmobile Association found that the snowmobile industry generated $245 million in revenue for the Adirondack region from 2011-12. That, combined with the $165 million from the Tug Hill Plateau, a component of the Adirondack Regional Tourism Council, meant $410 million total Ñ or a little less than half of the $868 million generated from snowmobile-related economic revenue in New York State in 2013 Ñ came from the North Country. FRESH FLAKES Ò WeÕ ve not been asked to help with any proposed new trails, but we and the board would probably say yes if we were asked,Ó said Seaman. Schroon Lake Town Supervisor Mike Marnell shared similar sentiments: Ò It looks very promising and the governor has done great things,Ó he said. Ò But it will take a lot of effort from clubs and associations to prepare them Ñ itÕ s like building mini roads. But at least weÕ ve now got the land to work with, which is promising.Ó Marnell said that new trail networks would be a great asset to the entire area: a new Newcomb-Schoon-Minerva loop, he said, would add an additional 60 miles to the existing infrastructure and it would act as a big draw to attract tourism that will support local businesses Ñ including new motels and restaurants. Ò We have a lot more winter months than summer,Ó he said. Ò Prior to Governor Cuomo, we were lost in the back pasture, but now things are looking good.Ó Paul Stephens, President of the Mountain Lakers Snowmobile Club in Westport, explained how new trails paired with a marketing push could transform the local economy: Ò The trail that we help fund and maintain goes through Moriah and Schroon Lake,Ó he said. Ò WeÕ re a closed network of trails. Other than going south from Moriah, thereÕ s no going north or west out. So a connector trail would us access to the rest of the state.Ó The Mountain LakersÕ territory is centered around the towns of Westport, Essex, Willsboro and Lewis and connects with Moriah at Lincoln Pond. Ò ItÕ s a small network,Ó he said, explaining that Essex County has very few trails, in part due to their position in the unforgiving High Peaks. ItÕ s easier to lay out trails in other parts of the state, he said, and a proposed trail to Blue Ridge Road from Newcomb to North Hudson Ñ a chunk of land that the state has purchased but has yet to be classified — could be revolutionary: If the agencies agreed to open that tract up to Ò wild forest,Ó said Stephens, then it could be a huge economic impact for everyone from gas stations to business owners. Ò ItÕ s never going to be anything like Old Forge because we donÕ t get the consistent snowfall that they do, an element that ensures a steady flow of travelers, but weÕ re hoping to expand and make good use out

SNOWFALL Ò We donÕ t have a sustainable year-long economy,Ó said Carol Inserra, owner of the Adirondack Hotel in Long Lake. Visiting snowmobilers making use of Hamiliton CountyÕ s 750 miles in trails make up the majority of their business in January and February, she said, a much-needed source of revenue in the downcast winter months. Inserra said that while the town sees an annual massive influx of seasonal tourism from June until September, keeping businesses open year-round on the revenue generated during a six-month time frame is a continuous struggle. For the Adirondack Hotel, said Inserra, that revenue has been aside to pay for the massive losses that they amass during the off-season. Ò For me to keep my staff working in the winter so that we have them during the summer, I have enormous losses Ñ I need $120,000 in my saving account by Sept. 30 to stay open,Ó she said. And even this hinges on temperamental weather patterns. If the townÕ s lake is frozen, explained Inserra, the town gets a considerable amount of snowmobilers each weekend, between 200-300. Ò But the lake needs to be safely frozen otherwise they canÕ t get there,Ó she said. Ò ItÕ s because of this unpredictability that for the past 24 years, IÕ ve been an advocate of building new trails, both as a supporter of the snowmobile clubs, working with the town and supporting organizations, making progress.Ó Long Lake doesnÕ t have the traditional snowmobile loops that other states have, and Inserra thinks that If they did, if there was snow and ice, then snowmobilers would come. She even envisions another season, with Long Lake being a destination from Old Forge or even Canada. This economic resurrection just might become possible, she said, with another set of interconnected trails that would link Hamilton and Essex, for example. ENVIRONMENTAL GROUPS Environmental groups welcomed the marketing push and opportunity for new trails but urged caution: Ò It should be Ô forever wildÕ for everybody and weÕ re pleased that the state is promoting the region,Ó said Willie Janeway, Executive Director for the Adirondack Council. Members of the Adirondack Council had previously expressed disappointment that the classification of the Essex Chain of Lakes would include a strip of Wild Forest that would allow snowmobiling. Ò We do understand that snowmobiling deserves to be part of this,Ó Janeway said in prepared statements about the current campaign, Ò but it is not embraced in every community and the wrong place with wrong management can be detrimental to the Adirondacks as a whole.Ó Janeway encouraged visitors to enjoy non-motorized sports Ñ skiing, hiking, snowshoeing Ñ and stressed that proper oversight continues to be required in order to protect natural resources, including wetlands, lakes and remote interior areas, from a negative impact, which is the main reason why he believes the region remains such a draw for tourism. Peter Bauer, head of the grassroots environmental organization Protect the Adirondacks! and vocal opponent of a Ò wild forest” classification, probed a reporter when reached for comment on his own thoughts on the campaign before commenting, Ò ItÕ s great to see the governor promoting winter sports and and snowmobiling in Upstate New York — it’s terrific.”

By Seth Lang SCHROON Ñ Town Supervisor Mike Marnell listed a number of projects as priorities for the year ahead, including expanding the town library, finishing a handicap walkway to the beach and repairing tennis courts behind the town hall. Ò One of the projects weÕ ve been trying to push over the last few years is expansion of our town library,Ó Marnell said. Ò The town would like to renovate our courtroom to make space for library expansion. By renovating the current courtroom it could provide about 5,000 square feet between that and the library for it to expand.Ó Another project the town will tackle this year is finishing the handicap walkway to the beach, Marnell said. Ò Once it is complete, the town of Schroon will have one of the very few area beaches with handicap access,Ó Marnell said Other priorities for 2014 are the repair of two more tennis courts behind the town hall, rehabbing the old firehouse to occupy the food pantry and water department, and the installation of a new sea wall that will expand the beach area on Schroon Lake, Marnell said. Marnell said he also recently received welcome news from the state Department of Transportation. Ò Some of the best news IÕ ve gotten recently came from the New York State Department of Transportation,Ó Marnell said. Ò They plan to pave Route 9N south of Schroon, which will improve the road immensely.Ó Ò Overall, weÕ re looking to cut costs, use our money wisely and have another good year,Ó Marnell said.

Valentine’s Day dinner-dance to aid project Garden, park to be constructed at town hall By Fred Herbst MINEVILLE Ñ A ValentineÕ s Day dinner-dance will assist efforts to construct a garden and park in Port Henry for families who have lost a child. The benefit for the Lake Champlain Memorial Garden & Angel of Hope Monument will be held Friday, Feb. 14, at the Mineville VFW. There will be a cocktail hour with appetizers and a cash bar at 6:30 p.m., a buffet dinner at 7:30 p.m. and dancing 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Dinner-dance tickets are $30 a person and $55 a couple and can be purchased in advance by calling Luci Carpenter at 5726427 or 546-8272. Tickets for the dance only can be purchased at the door for $7 at 8:45 p.m. Luci and Tom Carpenter of Moriah, whose son Brian died in a car accident in 2005, are leading the effort to create a Lake Champlain Memorial Garden & Angel of Hope Monument. It will be

located at the Moriah town hall, Park Place, Port Henry. Ò For the past three years, we have been searching for just the right spot to dedicate to the Memorial Garden and Angel of Hope Monument,Ó Luci Carpenter said. Ò Through the generous donations of family, friends and community to the Brian T. Carpenter Memorial Fund, Tom Scozzafava and the Moriah town board, this project has now becoming a reality.Ó The Angel of Hope Monument is a replica of the angel monument inspired by the book Ò The Christmas Box.Ó The book, written by Richard Paul Evens, is the story of a motherÕ s grief and eventual solace over the loss of her child. Ò The Lake Champlain Memorial Garden & Angel of Hope Monument is being created to become a peaceful place for grieving parents, families and friends of children who have died Ñ before or after birth, young or old; to mourn, heal and remember their loved one,Ó Carpenter said. Ò This is for everybody. The angel and garden represent hope, peace and sanctuary for all who have lost a loved one, child to adult. After all, we are all someoneÕ s child. “The garden will be a place of healing, solace and quiet reflection for families, friends and community,Ó she said. Ò The Memo-

rial Garden & Angel of Hope Monument is for anyone wishing to dedicate a memory to a child that has passed.Ó Interested people can call Luci Carpenter at 572-6427. Ò The Lake Champlain Memorial Garden & Angel of Hope Monument will be located on land located behind the Moriah town hall,Ó Carpenter said. Ò It will be created and funded through donations and fund raising efforts of the Angel of Hope/Memorial Garden committee. The sale of memorial bricks pavers, benches, memorial trees, shrubs and perennial gardens to be placed in and around the memorial garden and the angel statue, will fund the development of the project, as well as, the maintenance of the Memorial Garden & Angel of Hope Monument in future years. The pavers, benches, trees and perennial gardens are loving tributes from parents, grandparents, friends, family and other loved ones to the memory of a child and become a permanent part of the memorial garden.Ó There are about 122 angels placed throughout the world, Carpenter said, including eight in New York state. In the North Country, Angel of Hope Monuments are located in Chazy, Saranac Lake, Willsboro and Plattsburgh at Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital.

Cold weather, snow make for tough start of year for Moriah supervisor

By Keith Lobdell MORIAH Ñ Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafava knows roads in his town can be challenging under the best of conditions. Ò You are either going up a hill or down a hill when you are in Moriah,Ó he said. That has created plenty of work the townÕ s highway department over the past couple of weeks as ice storms, snow storms and subzero temperatures made their way through the North Country. Adding to the topographical challenges of Moriah roadways is the vital access they provide between the northern and southern ends of Essex County along Lake Champlain. Ò We have 33 miles of county highway that we maintain and they are all main routes,Ó Scozzafava said. However, Scozzafava said the town has been able to tackle the weather issues so far with lit-

tle impact to their budget. “We finished out the year with a highway budget surplus,Ó he said. Ò Any time you do a highway budget, it is like looking into a crystal ball, but our superintendent (Jamie Wilson) is very good when it comes to the budget for the department.Ó Scozzafava said that, like most towns and the county, salt was an issue at the end of the year. Ò Salt has been a huge problem,Ó he said. Ò Everybody ran out of salt at some point with the ice storm.Ó While keeping roads cleared during a storm can be a major cost to the town (Scozzafava said it can cost between $12,000-$16,000 to care for a weekend storm), there are other factors that could lead to even more financial hurt. Ò We have a very large water and sewer infrastructure throughout the village and town,Ó Scozzafava said. Ò When you do not have a lot of snow cover and you get a deep frost, that can lead to pipe issues. The fact is, the weather can cost us a lot of money.Ó

Crown Point seeking historical classification AAH study to be complete soon By Seth Lang CROWN POINT — Officials of the town of Crown Point are seeking a federal historical district classification for the downtown district that will pave the way for grants and tax credits for buildings in the approved area. Adirondack Architecture Heritage (AAH) is aiding with the effort by completing a study of the town which will determine if there is support for the historic designation. The study, which was paid for by a grant from Preserve New York, has been ongoing for two years, but is now just a few weeks from being finalized, according to AAH Executive Director Steven Englehart.

Ò Once the study is complete the town of Crown Point will determine whether to submit it to the NYS Department of Parks and Recreation and Historic Preservation for approval,Ó Englehart said. If the nomination is approved by the state Department of Parks and Recreation and Historic Preservation, it then goes to the National Park Service for final approval. If approved, the town could be eligible for various grants and tax credits for buildings in the approved area. Some of the buildings that would benefit from this classification are the old Grand Union building, the Masonic Hall and Senior Center, the First Congregational Church, the Hammond Chapel, and various residential structures in and around Veterans Park. During a meeting of the Crown Point Town Board Thursday, Jan. 9, Supervisor Charles Harrington said, Ò the town is anx-

iously awaiting the study in hopes to improve our historical downtown area. I believe itÕ s something worth looking into and we should take advantage of a classification we qualify for that would save the town money down the road.Ó Englehart said the entire process has been a positive one and said residents have generally show support for the classification. Ò On a personal note, itÕ s been a wonderful way to get to know that part of our region,Ó Englehart said of the study. Ò Crown Point is well known for its forts, the lighthouse and Champlain Bridge, as well as the historic Penfield area. However, learning more about the hamlet was very rewarding. The town has some beautiful buildings, a nice Civil War Monument and some very interesting roots like the Hammonds and Allen Penfield. The study should be finished within a few weeks,” Englhart said.

Crown Point to again seek Monitor Bay funding By Keith Lobdell CROWN POINT Ñ Crown Point Supervisor Charles Harrington is hopeful that the next time will be the charm. The town recently found out its funding request for its Monitor Bay Marina renovation project was not approved during the recent round of funding announced through New York State via the North Country Regional Economic Development Council. The project plans to address erosion issues along the shoreline of the marina as well as work to help Ò modernizeÓ the marina and campground area. Ò There is a good population of campers and quite a few boaters that take advantage of our facility,Ó Harrington said. Ò We want to modernize the park for those people that come here to take in the scenery that it offers.Ó Harrington said he was disappointed the project was not funded through the NCEDC funding awarded by the state last month, but understood that not all projects could have received money. Ò This round, to me, was all having to do with tourism,Ó Harrington said. Ò We are hoping that in the next round there will be more funding that can go towards things like waterfront improvements.Ó The state will announce another round of REDC funding initiatives in March of this year.

Doing it outdoors, with Hope and a Prayer


ccasionally, in my zealous effort to promote getting kids outside, IÕ ve often neglected a pressing need to do the same for adults. While I canÕ t advocate Ô tossing the old folks out in the snowÕ as I have with kids, I do believe thereÕ s a real need for programming that would help to connect, or reconnect people of all generations to the treasures and pleasures of the outdoor life. Some sort of program with mountain mentors, if you will. The situation was brought to my attention when a reader commented on a recent column I had written titled, Ò Toss the Kids into the Snow.Ó He remarked,Ò This was a great article. Virtually all that you said (about kids) would work for getting adults involved in any activity, winter or otherwise. So often when people try to teach family or friends (about the outdoors) they forget how long it took them to get Ò goodÓ . Ò They wish for the newbie to be up to their level in a couple of hours, or half a day, max. Too many have been turned away from activities because of that expectation.Ó Although I truly enjoy getting children outdoors, it doubles the pleasure whenever a program involves getting out with adults, especially seniors. And it is truly unfortunate that we tend to set our expectations so high when it comes to taking greenhorn adults into the outdoors. We all started as rookies in the wilderness, there wasnÕ t any spring training. The woods can be just as threatening to an inexperienced eighty year old as they are for an enthusiastic eight or nine year old. For nature neophytes, the wilderness can be just as intimidating as Time Square would be for an experienced woodsman. ItÕ s always difficult to be comfortable when you’ re out of both your element, and your zone. IÕ ve discovered the easiest and most enjoyable method for introducing newcomers to the woods is to treat them all the same, big, little or somewhere in between. The big woods are only intimidating for those who donÕ t know how to enjoy them, and that is a problem thatÕ s easily overcome. All it really takes is some time, patience, a bit of wildwood wisdom mixed with the company of at least one

competent outdoors traveler who is willing to share his or her experience with others. IÕ ve discovered that getting out with seniors is really no different than playing with a bunch kids. The woods and waters, fresh air and sunshine bring out the same lively enjoyment and enthusiasm. We often forget todayÕ s seniors grew up during an era when the majority of recreational activities were conducted outdoors. Such outings helped to keep them young, and we should never forget the true purpose of recreation is to re-create. As a child, I learned about the outdoors while playing with friends; but I learned much more from their parents and grandparents. I was reminded of this fact when I recently discovered a dusty old box on a shelf in the basement of my parentÕ s house in Elizabethtown. Inside the wooden box was an old birch bark scroll with handwriting scrawled across it. It had been written by Geoff Carleton, a wellknown ornithologist who often allowed me to tag along on his regular birding trips into the High Peaks. As I unrolled the scroll, the delicate bark cracked and split, but the writing was still legible. It read, Prayer Of The Woods I am the heat of your hearth on a cold winter night, the friendly shade screening you from the summer sun, and my fruits are refreshing draughts quenching your thirst as you journey on. I am the beam that holds your house, the board of your table, the bed on which you lie, and the timber that builds your boat. I am the handle of your hoe, the door of your homestead, the wood of your cradle, and the shell of your coffin. I am the bread of kindness and the flower of beauty. All who pass by this way, listen to my prayer: Harm me not. IÕ ve read various versions of this poem over the years, but none of them ever carried the impact it had that day. The scroll had secreted away a long time ago and hidden with it, were some of the most precious memories of my youth. Joe Hackett is a guide and sportsman residing in Ray Brook.
