Earlier this week, it was reported that Assemblywomen Teresa Sayward and Janet Duprey will retire from office effective Dec. 31 and then go back on the state payroll Jan. 1. That allows them to collect pension from the State Retirement System while also receiving their pay as members of the state Assembly. Taxpayers are already crying foul over the so-called “doubledipping” – and officials with watchdog groups like the New York State Public Interest Research Group say constituents have the right to be angry. But Teresa Sayward is defending her decision. “It's incorrect in to say our pension diminishes – it does not,” she said. “What diminishes is our death benefit. After you reach 60-years-old, your death benefit keeps decreasing every single year. It was also incorrect to use the $75,000 figure – I've lost nearly $50,000 in my death benefit. If I die while I'm in office, my husband just gets the death benefit; he'll never get any of my retirement.” Sayward says she's worked more than 20 years for her retirement, both as an Assemblywoman and as supervisor for the Essex County town of Willsboro. She notes that her pension won't be very large – less than $40,000 annually. She says she took her pension to protect her husband. “We were dairy farmers,” Sayward said. “All he has is social security and the little bit we were able to put aside.”

Christmas” and the play “Twelfth Night” by William Shakespeare. In 529, Roman Emperor Justinian named Christmas to be a civic holiday. Work and public business not associated with the celebration of the holiday was strictly forbidden. In 563, a decree from the Council of Braga declared that fasting on Christmas was prohibited and in 567 the Council of Tours elected the 12 days from Dec. 25 to Epiphany to be sacred. As a result, in the Middle Ages Christmas was not one day to take off work and spend with family, but 12 days of celebration. In older times, the “Twelfth Night” brought great festivities. In some areas of the world, it is still proper to erect a Christmas tree on Christmas Eve and leave it up until a week after New Year for this reason.

Furniture Is Our Business


TICONDEROGA — Beth Bidwell of The Wildlife Institute of Eastern New York is no stranger to the Ticonderoga School District. She has brought her birds to the Elementary School many times in the last number of years. She recently made her first trip to Ticonderoga Middle School. Bidwell, through a grant from International Paper Company, brought four birds of prey with her to Janet Mallon’s seventh grade classes and Jim Burgey’s sixth grade classes. The birds included an American Kestrel, a Peregrine Falcon, a Barred Owl and a Red-tailed Hawk. As each bird in turn was perched on Bidwell’s hand, she explained the adaptations of each bird and pointed them out on the live bird. Each bird had been rehabilitated after

being hit by a car or truck, but was left somehow too impaired to be released back into the wild. After each bird was shown, students were allowed to ask questions. At the end of each presentation, Bidwell challenged the students to put down their various electronic forms of entertainment and get outside to take in the Adirondack region. “We very much appreciate Ms. Bidwell coming to the middle school to make five presentations in a row, one to each group,” Principal Bruce Tubbs said. “The students were in awe and really learned a lot from her visit. We would also like to extend our gratitude to International Paper Company for their support of such programs from which our community greatly benefits.”

Horse club uses new school facilities Ti High students honored TICONDEROGA — The Adirondack Horse Club recently met in the new Ticonderoga Middle School science room. The guest speaker was Chantell Bruce, LVT, of the Westport Veterinary Hospital. Bruce demonstrated to the dozen or more group members how to conduct a fecal float test to detect parasite eggs in horse droppings. Each ADK Horse Club member had the opportunity to bring in a fecal sample from his or her horses and run the test to determine the presence of parasite eggs. The idea to hold the meeting in the new classroom came from Aspen Olcott, a seventh grade science student of Janet Mallon. Olcott is a member of the club and has horses of her own. The club needed to have access to microscopes to view the eggs harvested from the fecal samples. Olcott mentioned the idea to hold the meeting in the science room to her mother and to the president of the ADK Horse Club, Susan Taylor, and the two women contacted Mallon. Bruce had the luxury of using the new facility, microscopes and using the microscope camera to project the sample images on the Smart Board. The Internet was also accessed to view a variety of common equine parasites and eggs, and then those images were also projected using the Smart Board technology. The club seemed to have a lively informative meeting and enjoyed Bruce’s presentation in the new classroom. For more information about the ADK Horse Club phone 585-2699.

90900 TICONDEROGA — Last year, Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union was able to save 100 phones from the dump and donate them to help victims of domestic violence. In 2011, TFCU will again team with the STOP Domestic Violence Center of Essex County for its second annual cell phone drive. “We were looking for some charitable ideas that could be used to help out different organizations,” said Kate Thompson, marketing coordinator at TFCU. “We felt that this would be a good project for after the holidays because a lot of people get a new cell phone for Christmas and want to get rid of the old one. I am a fan of recycling, and this is a chance to give them away and have them be used for a worthy and good cause.”

The Tigers, Wolves, Bears, Webelos, and Arrow of Light dens of the Ticonderoga Cub Scouts Pack 72 shopped for toys to provide to the Tiny Tim program recently. Nearly 20 scouts spent their den meeting time prowling the shelves at Walmart to find just the right toys to brighten the day of many children throughout the Ticonderoga community this Christmas morning. They filled three carts with over $100 in toys. As another community service activity, the Ti Cub Scouts held a “Scouting for Food” activity asking for donations to the Ticonderoga Food Pantry. Over six cart-loads of non-perishable food supplies, as well as $80 in donations, were collected.

The collected phones will have their data cleared and be distributed to local victims of domestic violence to be used as an emergency 911 lifeline. Thompson said the phone drive was very successful last year, with the credit union receiving more cell phones than they had anticipated, and they hoped that they would be able to get even more response in 2011. “It got competitive between the branches to see which site could bring in the most phones,” Thompson said. “We also had Adirondack Wireless supply us with about 30 phones last year, and we think that now that people know we are doing this and the word is getting out there that we can have an even bigger impact in 2011.” The TFCU second annual cell phone drive to support the STOP Domestic Violence Center of Essex County will start after New Year ’s and continue through the month of February.

Change is a constant To the Times of Ti: It is no surprise that there is controversy raging over the issue of global warming. The potential impact on the living communities on earth is staggering in its dimensions. One of the first steps in grasping the true magnitude of these dimensions lies in the power of numbers. How often in our day to day lives are we pressed into really understanding the meaning of a billion? Well, think of this, imagine that at age 5 you were given the job of counting out load sequential numbers at the rate of one per second for eight hours a day. How old do you think you would be by the time you finally reached 1 billion? You can do the basic math if you like but you will find that the answer is 100. Yes, you would be 100 years old by the time you reached

Not broke why fix it! To the Times of Ti: It’s been a year since I took the office of town council for the town of Crown Point. To say the least it has been a challenging learning adventure. I would like to thank those that put their confidence in me and for those that did not, as this creates a needed balance. I think the most difficult challenge presented was when I was asked by one of the council members to “sit back and watch how things are done for six months to a year.” I still haven’t been able to do that. Perhaps it is because after being in that position for just over a month I was served legal papers pertaining to a suit I knew nothing of at the time and another one to follow shortly after the first. It was a further disappointment to find out that after the new supervisor and I won the election that past November that a special request for a Town Law of The State of New

1 billion. Now you ask, what does this have to do with global warming? Well, in 2009 alone the total amount of carbon dioxide discharged into our atmosphere was over 30 billion tons. This is carbon that was put into deep storage by plants over 250 million years ago. So, by spewing countless billions of tons of carbon dioxide into the air over the past few hundred years it isn’t much of a stretch of the imagination to realize that this collective act has the potential to have dire consequences on the Mother that nurtures the 1.5 million species that inhabits our Earth. One lesson that nature clearly teaches us is that, “The only thing that is permanent is change.” If we as a species are not able to adapt and change in order to maintain a sustainable relationship with Nature then we to will go the way of the dinosaur. Roger Frary Putnam Station York manual had been ordered for everyone but myself and the new supervisor. I found out it came with instructions to make sure the book is read and studied so the newly elected won’t be able to try and put anything over on us. Could this be a premeditated effort to “Catch one or both of us doing something wrong” or was this done in a helpful way. It appears now as a cloud of smothering dust. As I look back I think that this should have been done year ’s before. I better understand what the process was. Not sure if I can agree with it for the future. Unlike an infamous statement that seems to reappear time after time that goes something like this, “We have a system that isn’t broke so why try to fix it.” Phew! I must disagree with that in a big way. Sorry comrades. I will continue to listen, learn, keep an open mind and represent the people the best that I can.

Invest in health To the Times of Ti: The health and economic impact of tobacco use in New York State is alarming. Each year, 25,400 adults die from their own smoking, and 3,040 non smokers will die from second hand smoke exposure. At current rates, 389,000 youth (0-17) are projected to die prematurely from smoking. Smoking kills more people than alcohol, AIDS, car crashes, illegal drugs, murders, and suicides combined. During the 10 years the New York State Tobacco Control Program (TCP) has been operating, adult smokers have been reduced by 500,000 and youth smokers by 75,000. Our work is not done. Over 18 percent of adults smoke and almost 15 percent of high school students smoke. More than eight billion dollars are spent each year in health care costs directly related to smoking and over six billion dollars spent in smoking related productivity losses. The Tobacco Control Programs in your community are working diligently to decrease youth exposure to tobacco marketing in retail environments; provide help to quit smoking; increase the number of tobacco free outdoor areas, including parks, recreation areas, and worksites; and to create tobacco free college campuses. The tobacco companies spend billions of dollars each year to entice our children to smoke and to keep current smokers smoking. New York State needs to continue to invest in the work of the Tobacco Control Programs to provide tobacco free environments, eliminate tobacco marketing to children, eliminate exposure to second hand smoke, and to motivate adult smokers to quit.

Ticonderoga Kiwanis Club sponsors model bridge competition for students To the Times of Ti: I was so impressed with the model bridges that were built by students at a recent model bridge competition held at the Ticonderoga Middle School on December 18, 2010. The event was sponsored by the Ticonderoga Kiwanis Club. Approximately 30 to 40 students from the Ticonderoga Middle School, High School and St. Mary’s School participated in the event. The middle school students built model bridges out of popsicle sticks and then loaded them with weight to see how much load the bridge could support. Many of the bridges carried over 50-pounds. The winning bridge set a new record at the competition carrying 121-pounds. That’s right! A structure made out of popsicle sticks and glue was able to support over 100-pounds! The high school students created bridges out of balsam wood. Two of these bridges carried over 70-pounds when tested. The students will then take these bridges down to the Capital District Engineers Week Celebration on February 17, 2011 to compete against other students in the Capital District. As a past committee member of the Capital District event, the students will be able to test their design skills and

model bridges against other students in the Capital District. Their bridges will be placed on a load cell and be videotaped with instantaneous digital readouts of the result. The beautiful bridges get broken during the event, but the knowledge and experience will last a lifetime. There will be over 800 engineers attending the event to obtain continuing education, a requirement for all engineers who are licensed in New York State. The competition is an opportunity to introduce fun and exciting educational experiences in engineering to high school students who may have an interest in pursuing a career in engineering. Another great location for challenging engineering activities can be found at ASCEville is an imaginary city that children can scavenger hunt for engineering features in the city. there is also a list of summer camps that focus on engineering. It was great to see such enthusiasm for engineering at this event, at a time when the latest results from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) show that American students still lag significantly behind our counterparts in the world in math and science. Events like this bridge competition will help out students learn about teamwork, build confidence in the ability to problem solve and most importantly provide them with an opportunity to develop an interest for math and science and maybe

pursue a rewarding and exciting career in some field of engineering. I would like to thank all the Kiwanis volunteers at the event and for inviting me to attend. I’d like to thank Mr. Graham Bailey (an Engineer) for helping organizing the event and working with the students. Mr. Marshall and Mr. Jebb should also be commended for making this event a part of their classroom activities. School Superintendent McDonald’s opening remarks of encouragement to pursue engineering careers couldn't have come at a better time. Our nation’s infrastructure could use future engineers. Much of our nation’s aging infrastructure, (bridges, highways, water supplies and airports, etc.) are past their design life and our country will require ingenuity and creative solutions to repair aging structures. We don’t have to look very far to see an example of this in our own backyard with the failure of the Crown Point Bridge, which has impacted many people, disrupting travelers who’ve had to seek alternative routes which have directly affected local businesses. The new bridge was designed by a Queensbury High School graduate, Ted Zoli, who is a world renowned bridge designer. He was in Ticonderoga this past summer presenting his modified network tiered arch bridge that replicates the appearance of the original bridge. If you are taking a ride of the ferry, please take a few moments to watch the construction activity as the bridge is erected. It will be an unforgettable moment for your children to see, especially when they travel over that bridge in the future. I have already made numerous visits and always look forward to the next to see the progress. I hope that the local school officials plan to make a special field trip to that bridge when it re-opens. there is no admission fee like an amusement park and NO TOLL to go over the bridge. It is the perfect site for an educational field trip. It is scheduled to re-open on October 9, 2011. The New York State Department of Transportation has a great link to information on this bridge including a video of the original bridge’s demolition. Math and science is everywhere and is a part of our daily activities. can you think of how many times an Engineer touched your life? think about it the next time you make a trip to the grocery story. Your car was designed by Mechanical Engineers, the roads and bridges that you travel over were designed by Civil Engineers, the store was designed by Structural Engineers and the electricity in the store was provided by the help of Electrical Engineers. Engineering jobs are already in great demand and will only increase over the next century. It is no wonder that the November 2010 issue of Money Magazine listed twelve engineering jobs in their “50 Best Jobs in America”. Please don’t forget about Capital District Engineers Week (February 17-18, 2011 at the Albany Marriott; I look forward to attending next year ’s event and hope that even more students participate. I also look forward to attending some of those career fairs! Anthony W. DeFranco, PE, M.ASCE Past President-ASCE Mohawk-Hudson Section Past Co-Chair-Capital District Engineers Week Celebration

PORT HENRY — Since 1986 Stewart’s Shops and their customers have raised more than $13.5 million for local children’s organizations with the annual Holiday Match program. Through Christmas Day, Stewart's will match individual donations made to the Holiday Match program in all 328 Stewart’s Shops in New York and Vermont. All the money donated goes to charity; there are no administrative costs. In 2009 the Holiday Match raised more than $1.2 million. “We are looking forward to another successful season of generosity and giving. Every year Stewart’s customers rise to the challenge and we are also pleased to have all of our media partners with us again to help spread the news,” said Stewart’s Foundation president Susan Dake. “Last season the Holiday Match funds were given to 1,349 organizations. We are expecting another big year for applications because of the economy.”

All groups applying must be locally based, benefit children under 18, and be a qualified, charitable 501(c)(3) organization.

Be safe while sledding this winter RAY BROOK— Officials with the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation remind snowmobilers to exercise caution and refrain from drinking alcohol before and during their ride as they enjoy the state’s abundant snowmobiling opportunities. The state snowmobile trail system is expected to open over the next few weeks as conditions warrant. Andy Beers is acting commissioner of the parks office. “Our 10,500 miles of state-designated snowmobile trails make New York State an unmatched destination for snowmobiling,” he said. “The best way to enjoy this incredible net-

work is to do so safely. Travel at a speed that is appropriate for trail conditions and avoid drinking any alcohol whatsoever until the snowmobile is parked for the day. Zero alcohol is the only choice to make snowmobiling safer.” State Parks Police Chief Richard O’Donnell says his agency will strictly enforce speed limits and intoxication laws, as well as check for proper registration. “We will make every effort to ensure a safe and enjoyable recreational snowmobile season for riders, the landowners who host the trail system and motorists who encounter snowmobiles at road crossings and trailheads,” he said.

Gibson stepping down at Literacy Volunteers By Keith Lobdell

SATURDAY January 1, 2011

PORT HENRY — After over a decade as the head of Literacy Volunteers, director Charlie Gibson will be moving on. Gibson, who will step down at the start of 2011, said he is doing so in order to move closer to family. “It’s a difficult decision,” Gibson said. “I have been here for over 10 years, but we have decided to move to Oregon so we can be closer to our family. It’s kind of a life change, but I leave knowing that this is a great opportunity and a great chance for the right person to come into this position.” Gibson said he is pleased with the work that Literacy Volunteers of Essex and Franklin Counties has done while he has been the director, including the combination of the two counties. “That is one of the first things that we did when I got here in 2001,” Gibson said. “The ability to combine with Franklin County made it easier to get materials that we needed and to do our reporting to the state. It made everything a little more stream-lined for the delivery of our services.” Gibson said he was also happy with the variety of programs that Literacy Volunteers have been able to offer, including special events like the annual spelling bee in Saranac Lake and the Scrabble tournaments that are held throughout their coverage area.

“We have increased the number of events and we have been able to help more and more people ever year,” Gibson said. “These are all events that help keep us in the community eye and help recruit tutors and stress the importance of what we do.” Gibson said another way that the organization has been able to showcase their people is through the annual dinner. “I am very proud of our annual dinner,” he said. “That’s an event where we have the tutors and the students come to Lake Placid and have a night to recognize them and their accomplishments. We award our tutor and our student of the year, and just have a great

evening. We had over 70 people at the one this year, and it is just a good event to recognize everyone for all that they have done and just have a good time.” At the core, though, Gibson said the work could not be done without the volunteers who serve as tutors and mentors. “They are the organization,” he said. “Without them, there would be no organization. I just want to thank them so much for their time that they give because these days, time is a valuable thing. “It’s the greatest thing and the highest calling to help someone grow, and that is what these people do,” continued Gibson.

SATURDAY January 1, 2011


DEC reminds us to be safe on ice By Chris Morris RAY BROOK — With winter in full swing, officials with the state Department of Environmental Conservation remind outdoor enthusiasts to practice safety on icedover water bodies. Hiking, snowshoeing, skiing, and skating on frozen lakes and ponds are among the many winter delights enjoyed by residents and visitors of the Adirondack Park. Nothing can ruin a good pond hockey game like a crack in the ice. David Winchell is spokesman for DEC Region 5 in Ray Brook. He says the agency offers safety tips, but never comes out and says it’s 100 percent safe to be on the ice. “You never know,” he said. “All conditions are different, depending on factors like shoreline seeps, underwater springs, currents, inlets, outlets, bubblers – there’s a lot of different things that can effect the safety of ice. The one thing that we always say is check the ice thickness before going out on it. If there’s up to three-to-four inches, then it’s safe to go out on foot.” Winchell says between three and four inches is safe for human traffic – but the DEC stops short of recommending thickness for motorized vehicles. Officials say there’s no way to be sure when the ice is safe for trucks or snowmobiles, so it’s best to air on the side of caution. “We don’t encourage people to take vehicles on the ice – people do, but we’re not going to give recommendations on when it’s safe to

bring vehicles on or anything like that,” he said. The best way to determine the thickness of ice is to pack an ice pick or an auger, Winchell says. “This early in the season, you could probably take some sort of bar with a point – like a wrecking bar – or an ice axe and just chip through the ice to see what the thickness is,” he said. Like any outdoor activity in the Adirondacks, being prepared is key. If you plan on skiing in the High Peaks – the Avalanche Pass perhaps – be sure to pack rope measuring at least 50 feet. Winchell notes that if someone goes through the ice, remember these simple rules: reach, throw, go. Rescuers should start with “reach” by lying on their belly and staying away from the edge of the broken ice. Pull the person onto the ice by using a tree branch, hiking stick or a ski pole. Once on the surface, both the victim and the rescuer should roll away from the edge then crawl on all fours until out of harm’s way. Winchell then recommends retracing your exact path back to land. The “throw” step involves using rope to pull the person to safety. Continue pulling the person until they are out of danger. As for “go,” that’s the recommendation if rescuers can’t risk saving the victim on their own – in other words, go get help. If you fall through, Winchell says it’s imperative to start warming up as soon as possible.

“Immediately move and get back to your car,” he said. “If that’s too far away, you need to move to shore and possible start a fire. So another good preparation is to have some sort of fire starter with you as well.” Any winter activity, whether on the ice or not, requires the appropriate clothing. That means wool or some sort of synthetic alternative – never cotton, Winchell notes. “And if you’re going to be out there for sometime, you should also consider some sort of portable shelter,” he said. “There’s shelters similar to tents that you can set up. A lot of ice anglers use shanties to protect themselves from the cold.” Winter anglers often enjoy a nip from the flask while searching for those land-locked salmon – and a cold brew may be refreshing after a rousing game of pond hockey. But Winchell cautions that even though alcohol may warm your belly, it actually increases the risk of hypothermia. “The consumption of alcohol can actually make you more susceptible to hypothermia than drinking non-alcoholic beverages,” he said. “You may feel warmer, but in reality, you’re not.” And although the DEC won’t issue recommendations for motorized access to lakes and ponds, Winchell cautions that drivers who break through and find themselves submerged could face steep penalties if the vehicle isn’t retrieved quickly enough – especially if it begins leaking fuel into the water.

Doug Marshall of Crown Point Central School indicates the size information on a tire. He is a junior in Automotive Technologies at CV-TEC Mineville. “A tire's size is a mixture of measurements. The section width is given in millimeters, the aspect ratio is a percent and the rim diameter is given in inches,” said Art Miclette, automotive teacher at CV-TEC. As part of the program, students calculate the diameter and circumference of a tire. Students then consider how changing tire size affects the accuracy of the speedometer.

Sheriff supports new Move Over Act Seagle alumni nominated for Grammy By Keith Lobdell ELIZABETHTOWN — In Essex County, incidents involving moving vehicles and officers on patrol hit close to home. Now, a new law, which will be enacted on New Year ’s Day, is drawing praise from the county’s head officer. “Obviously this is something that has been a problem for us because one of our officers was killed during a situation that is now addressed with the Move Over Act,” Richard Cutting, Essex County Sheriff, said. In 2005, Deputy Sheriff Eric Peter Loiselle was killed alongside the Northway when he was struck after stopping a vehicle for a traffic matter. Loiselle, along with State Trooper Robert Ambrose and Onondaga County Deputy Sheriff Glenn M. Searles, were used by proponents of the bill to show why the act needed to be passed. The official name of the law is the AmbroseSearles Move Over Act. “The act basically says that as you are approaching an emergency vehicle that is stopped for whatever reason, you are required to slow down and move over,” Cutting said. “The act states that drivers should use due care when they are going past an authorized emergency vehicle that is topped with its lights on.” Cutting said the main area of concern for deputies has always been along the Northway. “As a rule, the Northway traffic is just tremendous,” Cutting said. “The vehicles are traveling at a high rate of speed and they do not see that parked car as a problem. We owe it to those line officers to do everything that we can do to get the word out and keep them safe.” Cutting said motorists are now mandated to give stopped emergency vehicles one full lane of room on multi-lane highways, like the Northway. “You need to move over one full lane,” he said. “Unfortunately, a lot of

people feel that if the lane is not free for them, they can just keep going at the same rate of speed and not slow down to take advantage of an opening in the far lane.” Cutting said the act also extends to two-lane state and county routes. “On two-lane highways, there is not enough room to give as much space,” Cutting said. “It requires much more caution and drivers need to slow down and give as much space as required, acknowledge the officer is there and try to protect them.” Cutting said every driver is responsible for the safety of those around them on the roadways, including their own. “We have a rabbi that comes to the jail that has always said that whether it is the driver or the police officer, you have people who are awaiting your safe return at home,” he said. New York State passed the AmbroseSearles Move Over Act on Dec. 22. Failure to abide by the law could result in fines up to $150 and a state surcharge of $85. Deputy Loiselle was struck and killed by a tractor trailer while conducting a traffic stop on the Northway in the town of Moriah at 1 a.m. in the morning of Aug. 17, 2005. Loiselle was speaking with the driver of the vehicle he had stopped when the tractor trailer veered onto the shoulder, struck his patrol car, and then the vehicle he had pulled over. Loiselle attempted to jump to safety but was killed. The driver of the tractor trailer was arrested and charged with reckless driving, unsafe lane change, speeding, and several other traffic violations. On Oct. 3, 2006, he pleaded guilty to the misdemeanors of reckless driving, keeping a false logbook, driving on the shoulder of the road, failure to reduce speed for an emergency vehicle, and moving from a lane unsafely.

THE SENIORS PAGE Essex County Office for the Aging 518-873-3695 • 877-464-1637 County Complex, Elizabethtown, NY 12932 Set healthy New Year’s resolutions Resolutions are often about starting or stopping certain behaviors; the only problem is, resolutions are all too often broken. Start 2011 right by resolving to make this the year you really focus on your health. Consider these resolution solutions to learn how you can succeed - this and every year. * Assess your personal food choices and lifestyle. Keep track of what you ear and drink so you can identify the behaviors you would like to change. * Set goals and be realistic. Change doesn’t mean you have to give up the foods you like. Smaller portions, different ways of cooking and being more physically active will allow you to enjoy favorites with fewer calories. * Be patient and don’t give up if you don’t see a huge difference right away. Real change takes time, commitment and encouragement. If you get off track, pick up where you left off and start again. * Seek help from a qualified health professional. A registered dietitian is the best source of reliable and up-to-date food and nutrition information. (Information produced by ADA’s Public Relations Team)

Communication with a person with dementia Remember, it is most important to treat a person with dementia with dignity and respect. Avoid talking down or talking to others who are present as if the person with dementia is not there. At all times be aware of your tone of voice and body language. Do not use the high-pitched voice that people sometimes use when speaking to children. Lower your pitch and volume, and stay relaxed. Try not to stand over the person if he is seated, which may be interpreted as being bossy or intimidating. The person in your care may not understand your words, but he may nevertheless respond to the tone of your voice or your posture, and he will intuitively decide whether to respond to you as friend or foe. Coping with changes in communication is one of the biggest challenges that caregivers and family member face when caring for persons with dementia. Unfortunately, the challenge increases as the disease progresses.

Willsboro to help Schroon Lake open new gym Wildcats set to officially open new gym with boys, girls hoops action against Warriors By Keith Lobdell

WILLSBORO — The top two teams in Mountain and Valley boys basketball will take to the court Jan. 5, along with a rematch of a thrilling league opener in girls basketball. It won’t be just any court, however. The Wildcats will officially cross the threshold into their new home that day. “We wanted to have a special evening for the first night in our new gym, and this is a great chance to have two good varsity basketball games,” Mary Lou Shaughnessy, athletic director at Schroon Lake Central School, said about the Jan. 5 opening of the school’s new gym against the Willsboro Warriors. “It’s going to be a competitive game for both our girls and boys varsity teams,” Shaughnessy added. “We will start at 4 p.m. with a girls modified game, followed by the varsity girls game and the varsity boys game. It’s going to be a great grand opening.” Shaughnessy said the new gym has a new and fresh feel to it, and said the players are looking forward to stepping on the court. “Everyone is geared up for the night,” she said. “It’s an exciting

place for our kids to come out and we are going to have a pep rally in the afternoon of the game and put on a program for that night.” Shaughnessy added that the experience will be just as unique for the opponents, starting with Willsboro, as it will for the home team. “This is a great change for us as well as the visitor,” she said. “In a way, it is sad to see our games in the old gym come to an end, but as that door closes, this exciting new one opens for our program.” As for the games, the evening will be highlighted by the top two boys teams in the MVAC taking to the floor as Schroon Lake will host Willsboro, who agreed to move the previously scheduled Jan. 4 contest in Willsboro to Schroon Lake for the opening night of the new gym. Willsboro coach Jim Spring said even though the game was now on the road, that he was looking forward to playing Schroon Lake on a large - albeit their home - court. “It will be nice to play them on a large floor down there,” Spring said. “I thought it always gave them a little bit of an advantage with that small floor.” Both Spring and Schroon Lake head coach Dana Shaughnessy agree that defense will be the key to the game. “The thing that we have taken pride in this year has been our de-

fense,” Spring said. “When we get the turnovers and get the pressure we need, our offense feeds off that. When we don’t, we just kind of wait on something to happen.” “We need to keep up the pressure defense,” Shaughnessy said. “We have a lot of subs, so we can keep the press and the pressure on for just about the whole game.” “It’s going to be a tough game,” Spring said. “They have a very good team with some real good players. It has always been a good game when Willsboro and Schroon Lake play.” Both coaches said they will continue to push their team hard leading up to the game. “We are going to keep practicing hard over vacation and take advantage of any scrimmages we have,” Shaughnessy said. “We are going to get a game and maybe a scrimmage in to help us prepare for Schroon Lake,” Spring said. “We just need to keep the tempo up and stay on track throughout the week.” Last season, the teams split their two meetings, with both teams winning on their home floor. The opening night for the Schroon Lake gymnasium will take place on Wednesday, Jan. 5, with the modified girls game at 4 p.m., followed by the varsity girls game between the Warriors and Wildcats and finished with the varsity boys game.

SATURDAY January 1, 2011

Pension From page 1 Sayward said taxpayers may not realize how much personal money she puts into her job as a legislator. Noting that she covers a large geographical district, Sayward said most of her gas money comes from her own pocket. She also maintains a residence in Glens Falls so she doesn't have to drive home to the North Country in between legislative sessions. “It simply was a decision I made to protect my husband,” she said. “And I think families make decisions like that as you start looking at how you're going to maintain for the rest of your lives when in fact I do decide that I want to get out of the business and have a few years left.” Duprey noted that she could have retired from her post as a county treasurer 10 years ago.


She also noted that while she's been criticized for accepting a state pension, both of her opponents in this fall's election – Democrat Rudy Johnson and Conservative David Kimmel – collect a federal pension. Duprey said there's a four percent penalty on pension for every year a lawmaker serves over the age of 60. She too says she filed for the retirement loophole in the best interest of her family. “Already, my pension is reduced 20 percent, and I looked at that and thought that's just not much money,” she said. “By retiring – and I took a reduced retirement rate – he will receive a monthly income if I die first. I've been married 40 years and elected 35 years of them, my husband deserves something. He's worked very hard, he worked for the state for 22 years, his state retirement is less than $20,000 a year.” Sayward noted that accepting a pension and still working isn't uncommon.

“How many New York State Troopers retire and go back and work as a sheriff?” she asked. “When a trooper retires and goes back to work, their pension can still increase. Our pensions stop, the state ends its liability. We had a supervisor here in my hometown who was supervisor here before and he worked at the county, he retired and went back to work. It happens all the time.” She said whether it is right or wrong, the voters will let her know in two years.
