Canadian bike tour to provide Ticonderoga economic opportunities By Fred Herbst fred@denpubs.com TICONDEROGA — A Canadian bicycle tour of the area this summer will be an economic boast for Ticonderoga, according to those involved. Velo Quebec Voyages of Montreal, which organizes international bicycle tours, will bring as many as 2,000 cyclists to Ti for two days in August. “I think it’s a great opportunity for the community to have 1,600 to 2,000 people in town for two days,” said John McDonald, Ticonderoga Central School superintendent and co-chair of the local Velo organizing committee. “It’s going to be quite a show.” Barb Brassard, executive director of the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce and co-chair of the local Velo organizing committee, agrees. “This is a big opportunity for local businesses and civic groups,” she said. “These cyclists will need a lot of local support.” The bicycle tour is scheduled to take riders from Montreal to Lake George, where they’ll spend a night. On Aug. 8 cyclists will come to Ticonderoga and stay overnight. They will spend Aug. 9

Lake Champlain ice unsafe, officials warn Bridge, ferry situations impact ice on lake TICONDEROGA — The Vermont Agency of Transportation, the New York State Department of Transportation, the United States Coast Guard and the New York State Emergency Management Office are warning people that the ice surrounding the site of the Lake Champlain Bridge and near Ticonderoga will not be the same as in years past and that recreational activities in the area should be conducted with extreme caution. The establishment of a new 24-hour ferry service between Chimney Point, Vt., and Crown Point will prevent ice from forming in the vicinity of the Lake Champlain Bridge. Ferries will move continuously from shore to shore to prevent ice from forming. In addition, the Fort Ticonderoga cable ferry which runs between Shoreham, Vt., and Ticonderoga has installed bubblers and a thermal warming system to extend its operation into the winter months. Though the ferry is not operating, ice along the cable route will be minimal, if present at all. No one knows exactly how far the ferry routes will affect the adjacent iced regions, but ferry traffic will certainly weaken the ice in those areas. The VTrans, NYSDOT, USCG, and SEMO are cautioning those who ice fish, operate snow mobiles, or drive all-terrainvehicles that the ice around the bridge site and the Ticonderoga ferry is unsafe, even during stretches of extreme cold. “The ferry service will alleviate much of the burden put on commuters when the Lake Champlain Bridge closed to all traffic on Oct. 16, but the ferries pose new risks to those who may try to cross the lake on their own once ice begins to form,” said VTrans Secretary David Dill. “People need to understand that ice conditions near the bridge will no longer be normal.” With unstable ice conditions due to the

Ti, Schroon Lake teachers take aim at new sport TICONDEROGA — Ticonderoga Middle School hosted a National Archery in the Schools Program training session at the Community Building recently. Teachers Kathy Tubbs, Todd Mitchell and Jim Marshall along with teachers from Schroon Lake, Wells, Peru and Saranac Lake districts were trained by Melissa Bailey to become certified instructors in their respective classrooms. Mike Sharp and Lee Silvernail represented Schroon Lake. Bailey is employed be the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and is the NASP coordinator. Participants in the program were instructed on proper range set-up and safety, steps to archery success, coaching tech-

niques, and equipment operation, maintenance and repair. The National Archery in the Schools Program was initially developed in Kentucky in 2001 for students in grades 4 – 12. New York State implemented the program in January of 2008 and is now the 44th state involved in the program. The program usually covers a two-week course taught in physical education classes and covers content such as archery history, safety, techniques, mental concentration and self-improvement. Although normally taught in PE classes, Ti Middle School officials hope to start an after school archery club once resources are obtained for the equipment.

ferry operations, state-to-state transit across the ice is even more dangerous this year. All persons are advised to stay off the ice and to keep clear of the ferry routes and Lake Champlain Bridge, which itself will be a construction zone as crews work all winter to remove debris from the 80-year-old structure so that a new bridge can be erected in its place. “Until the bridge is demolished it is at risk of collapse, especially during high wind conditions and when temperatures fall below 25 degrees Fahrenheit,” said NYSDOT Acting Commissioner Stanley Gee. “Further, once we demolish the bridge, the entire area will be a construction zone as we remove and dismantle bridge sections from the lake's channel and shore. The public should be aware of their responsibility to stay clear of the area and put safety first when making recreational or travel plans in the region.” “Our first concern is the safety for both residents and first responders,” said John R. Gibb, Director of the State Emergency Management Office. “Even in normal years, local responders are called to rescue folks. This is not a normal year. It has new challenges and that means people have to use common sense and keep safety in mind when planning their outdoor activities. We continue to work with DOT and other involved State agencies to ensure that first responders are able to serve the community throughout the demolition and construction phase of this project.” “No ice is safe ice,” said Senior Chief Petty Officer Louis Coleman, officer in charge of Coast Guard Station Burlington. “A person who falls through the ice has an estimated survival time of 20 minutes. Because the response time near the Lake Champlain Bridge area is over an hour, chances of survival are slim at best should a person find himself in need of emergency assistance.”

TICONDEROGA — While the Fort Ti-Shoreham Ferry on Lake Champlain closed for the 2009 season Dec. 31, it ran two months past its normal open-water season thanks to the creative engineering efforts of Ferrisburgh, Vt.,-based OSI Industries, home of the Dock Doctors Water Specialists. The normally frozen lake channel between Shoreham, Vt.—where the ferry is based—and Ticonderoga was kept open since midNovember to accommodate thousands of commuters and other travelers seriously inconvenienced by the closure, and final demolition, of the 80-year-old Lake Champlain Bridge. According to marine specialist Chris Girard of Dock Doctors, the Vermont company was called upon to figure out a way to keep the Ti ferry running past it’s summer season. “Just after the bridge closed, both New York and Vermont state officials contacted us to get involved,” Girard said. “Mike Matot, the ferry owner, was asked to keep running past the tourist season. But both states wanted Mike to keep the ferry sailing into December. It wasn’t going to be an inexpensive job. And we are the only ones locally that have the lake knowledge to do this sort of thing. So, we were up to the technical challenge.” Dock Doctors was able to demonstrate the means by which narrow portions of

“Miss Doc”, a custom-built waterfront twin-motor vessel, did yeoman’s work on Lake Champlain from mid November through last week. The flat-bottom vessel, along with a unique submarine air-bubbling system, helped keep the ferry channel open in frozen Lake Champlain between Shoreham and Ticonderoga. Photo by Lou Varricchio

Lake Champlain could be kept ice-free during the early winter season. But as Girard said, the 24-hour, seven-days-a-week effort came at a high price—a price the includes both labor, equipment and lots of overtime. The marine firm responded quickly to the bi-state request by coming up with a two-prong attack on the ice forming on Lake Champlain in November. The “ice war” on the lake began in mid November and included use of Dock Doctors’ special underwater air bubbling system and its custom-built waterfront motor vessel dubbed the “Miss Doc”. The 32x13-foot “Miss

Doc” was built in Ontario almost entirely out of lightweight marine-grade aluminum. The flat-bottom vessel, which superficially appears to be a John boat on steroids, includes a hightech pilot house and a heavy lifting crane. The vessel is powered by two 135 HP outboard gasoline engines. Since before Thanksgiving, “Miss Doc” ran 24 hours a day through thick and thin (ice that is) until last week when the ferry was finally closed for the 2009 season. Dock Doctors’ bubbler system, powered by onshore compressors, blows a constant stream of warm air a foot or so above the lake bottom, to agitate the water cre-

ating a submarine upwelling of warm water into the surrounding chilling water. This agitation slows and eventually stops the formation of ice. Once a channel was opened, “Miss Doc” was used to push back the ice along the channel edges and help build up a wall of thick ice—shore-to-shore—that wasn’t going to move much. Occasional ice calves were pushed back by “Miss Doc” with a screened metal plow on her bow. “Miss Doc” is also capable of rising up on the ice, or shore, if needed. Her hinged bow opens, a miniature version of the U.S. Navy’s amphibious LSTs of World WarII. Ultimately, the insurance company insuring the Fort Ticonderoga Ferry decided it could no longer insure the ferry past Jan. 3. So, without the insured extension period, Mike Matot closed the Ti ferry until spring 2010. According to Girard, Dock Doctors could have kept the lake channel open between Vermont and New York for many weeks into January and possibly February but the effort would have been expensive. “Everyone has been very patient with the inconvenience of losing the old Crown Point bridge,” Girard said. “This has been like a lot like working at an airport. We’re not sure what Mother Nature is going to throw at us, so we’re working to keep the runways open.”

The iron is hot: Time to abolish the APA T

he year was 1771, and the American colonies united in their refusal to pay taxes imposed by an English Parliament in which they had no represen-

tation. It was this taxation without representation that ultimately laid the groundwork for the American Revolution and our independence as a nation. Flash forward to 1971 and the organization of the Adirondack Park Agency. Here was a tax-subsidized state agency with absolutely no representation from the people they were charged with regulating. Sound familiar? Call it regulation without representation. While the APA Act was later adopted requiring five park residents on the Board of Commissioners, the discontent created in 1971 remained. Today, it may be stronger than ever. Fueled by recent media reports of arbitrary enforcement, hypocritical acts, infiltration by environmental groups, jurisdictional disputes, proposed regulations on everything from boathouses to hunting cabins and astronomical fines threatened against those who disobey these edicts — many are saying enough is enough. The APA needs to be dismantled — and I’m not the only one saying so. The Glens Falls Post-Star made a similar case in a recent thought-provoking editorial, and Assemblywoman Teresa Sayward also just joined the campaign. “People you would never think would have considered it are now talking about it,” Sayward told me in a recent phone interview. “The APA has outlived its usefulness.” The original intent of the agency was not a bad one. The concept was to have a group that could provide tools to local governments so land-use planning was done with the

environment in mind. Former chairman of the Adirondack Park Review Board Joe Rota said that without the APA Act, development would have run rampant in the 1970s. “In 1973, there was no planning or zoning in many Adirondack towns, the safeguards included in the act were needed,” he said. But, the Goliath the APA has become — with its strong-arm tactics and seemingly endless state resources — oversteps its motive. It may even be self-defeating in its purpose, because of the discontent and trepidation that exists. “The problem is in their interpretation of the act and then changing it through regulation. The act was only supposed to be modified by the state Legislature,” Rota said, noting stringent waterfront regulations the APA has enacted and a proposal to limit boathouse size. “It’s really just a harassment thing, it has nothing to do with protecting the environment,” Rota said. Indeed, with its $6.2 million annual budget and 72 positions, the agency seems to spend more energy chasing conforming landowners, enacting its own rogue regulations and fighting lengthy court battles than championing the environment. When the agency does decide to act, they take jurisdiction over an entire project instead of simply the portion that triggered the jurisdictional determination, then often force unrealistic standards all their own — standards they

seemingly pull from the sky depending on who sits across the table. Black Brook Councilman Howard Aubin, a long-time outspoken critic of the APA and its tactics, believes the agency arbitrarily picks certain cases to pursue and then makes an example for all to see. “They try to scare others into complying with their wishes,” Aubin said. “All it does is create more contempt and anger.” Take, for example, the recent Lowe’s project in Ticonderoga. Although the project was being built in a hamlet with an approved APA land-use plan in place, the APA stepped in and took jurisdiction from town planners because a wetland half the size of a swimming pool existed on the 10-acre parcel and the building was a few feet too high. Instead of making sure the concerns of that tiny wetland were mitigated, the park crusaders opened the entire project to review, miring it in bureaucratic red tape and adding months to its completion and thousands of dollars in expense. The finding? Lowe’s sign was too big. Never mind the building is in the middle of the town’s business district with a Wal-Mart sign the size of a Greyhound bus next door, the APA said Lowe’s should only be allowed a sign smaller than a sheet of plywood. Common sense? It simply doesn’t exist in Raybrook. And oh, how they hate to lose. When the enforcement case between the agency and Essex farmer Sandy Lewis was settled last summer in his favor, the lead APA attorney on the case, Paul Van Cott, swapped malicious e-mails with Lewis. “Mr. Lewis, you are a sociopath,” wrote Van Cott. “Please shut up. Go out and get a shovel and work like a real person on your farm. Enjoy life and be a real farmer. You are very fortunate. Realize that and get a life.” “Go farm. Dig a hole, milk a cow. Enjoy the 1,000 acres of farmland on Lake Champlain that you have,” he wrote, going on to defend the APA's Nov. 9, 2009 settlement with LeRoy Douglas, the Silver Lake resort owner who recently had his APA enforcement case mysteriously dropped. “You won your case,” Van Cott told Lewis. “We respect the law. Go farm.” Van Cott was later “reassigned” from the agency’s enforcement division — but was never formally reprimanded, nor was his pay reduced. I’m not sure if someone in private business would have been afforded the same luxury. These examples only scratch the surface of the oppression inflicted by the park agency, stories I have covered as a journalist here for more than two decades. It is time we the Adirondack people take back our independence — remove the air of impropriety, withdraw the blank check for delivering justice and demand equal enforcement for all. We do that by disbanding the APA and passing its jurisdiction over private land to local governments. We then allow the state Department of Environmental Conservation to do what it is charged with under the state Constitution — protect the public lands in the Adirondacks. They are best suited to do so. And, contrary to the “regulation without representation” thinking that existed in 1971, it is time state lawmakers realize the Adirondack people have both the capability and aptitude to administer environmental regulations, free of the political and environmental bias that exists at the APA. We, after all, have the most to lose. The Adirondack Park Agency has, as Teresa Sayward so eloquently put it, outlived its usefulness. John Gereau is managing editor of Denton Publications.

The former has a reputation among most shoppers for being “more expensive;” the latter is widely considered to be the better value due to its “everyday low pricing.” But savvy shoppers know the By Jill Cataldo sale prices of the supermarket almost always beat the everyday prices of the supercenter. To test the idea, I recently took a field trip of sorts and compared prices on more than 20 common items at both types of stores. Here’s a sample of the price differences I found on six popular name brand products at an “everyday low price” supercenter (ELP) and at a supermarket (SM). Single-serve fruit cup: $1.97 ELP / $1.50 SM Half-gallon organic milk: $3.50 ELP / $3.99 SM Frozen pizza: $4.75 ELP / $4.99 SM Dishwasher detergent tablets: $4.26 ELP / $3.99 SM 4-pound bag of dog food: $6.97 ELP / $4.99 SM Juice pouches: $1.98 ELP / $1.49 SM I found the everyday low prices at the supercenter were higher, in most cases, than the prices for the same products at the supermarket. Many shoppers believe using coupons to buy products at the supercenter with its everyday low pricing will save them as much, if not more, than watching for sales at a supermarket and using coupons there. This is just not the case. As you will see, on my shopping trip I bought milk and pizza at the supermarket and paid significantly less for them than I would have paid at the supercenter using the same coupons. Let me walk you through the numbers. During my comparison-shopping trip, the supermarket was running an additional promotion. If you spent $30 on featured items you received a coupon at checkout good for $10 off your next shopping trip. So, a third of my supermarket expenditure would be returned to me in the form of a Catalina coupon printed out at the register. That coupon is just like a $10 bill I can use the next time I shop at the store. Now, considering a third of what I pay is coming back to me, the comparison really gets interesting. Here’s what the prices on my individual purchases at the supermarket now

look like with the Catalina savings figured in: Fruit cup: $1.97 ELP / $.99 SM Organic milk: $3.50 ELP / $2.63 SM Frozen pizza: $4.75 ELP / $3.29 SM Dishwasher tablets: $4.26 ELP / $2.63 SM Dog food: $6.97 ELP / $3.29 SM Juice pouches: $1.98 ELP / $.98 SM Notice the prices of the milk and pizza, originally more expensive at the supermarket, have now dipped well below the supercenter ’s prices. And, we haven’t added in savings from our coupons in yet! Here are the coupons I used with these items, along with the post-coupon prices at both stores: $1 coupon for fruit cup. After coupon: $.97 ELP / - $.01SM $.55 coupon for organic milk: $2.95 ELP / $2.08 SM $3 coupon for frozen pizza: $1.75 ELP / $.29 SM $2.50 coupon for dishwasher tablets: $1.76 ELP / $.13 SM $3 coupon for dog food: $3.97 ELP / $.29 SM $1 coupon for juice pouches: $.98 ELP / -$.02 SM At the supermarket, I ended up paying significantly less than if I had used my coupons to purchase the same items at the supercenter. Both the fruit cup and the juice pouches were not only free after the coupon, but the store paid me a few cents in overage to take them home. And, I certainly couldn’t have taken a frozen pizza or a bag of dog food home for less than 30 cents each at a supercenter! By the end of my shopping trip, the difference between the prices in both items was incredible. The total cost of the 21 products I purchased at the supermarket was $13.13. At the supercenter, the same products would have cost me $42.58, even with the same coupons. I’ve got the full list of items on my coupon blog, www.jillcataldo.com, under the heading “Supermarket vs. Supercenter” if you’d like to see the rest of the items I purchased during this shopping trip. A supermarket’s sale prices will typically beat the everyday low prices of a supercenter and if the store is running a money-back promotion on top of the sale, you can cut your bill even further. I saved about 69 percent over the supercenter ’s prices on the same items during this promotion!

Putnam family spends New Year ‘down under’ Bain family visits Australia, New Zealand PUTNAM — A Putnam family has gone “down under.” Tom Bain, who is stationed in South Korea with the U.S. Army, recently took his wife Chris and their children Tommy and Caitlin to Australia and New Zealand. “It is the summer time in the southern hemisphere, so this was a welcome break from the frigid temperatures of South Korea,” Bain said. “This was an amazing trip on many accounts: scenery, friendly people, great accommodations, and relaxing atmosphere.” Their first stop was Sydney, Australia. They visited the Sydney Aquarium, the Sydney Tower, Sydney Harbor, the Sydney Opera House, the Sydney Harbor Bridge, the 200 Sydney Olympic Park and Sydney’s World Square. Then it was off to the Blue Mountains west of Sydney. “Our first stop on this trip was to a small game park where the kids were able to pet Koalas and Wallabies,” Bain said. “They could also view Dingoes, Wombats, as well as birds and lizards of all shapes and sizes. It was an enjoyable experience and personal introduction to Australia's wildlife.” The Blue Mountains are Australia’s green version of our Grand Canyon. The sides of the valley drop away for hundreds of feet before merging into the lush forest floor below. A three-hour flight took the Bain family to Uluru in the Australian Outback. “One of the biggest surprises of the desert

They did not bite, but it is unsettling to feel them crawling over your skin seeking moisture. It is a wonder they survive in such a harsh environment.” The family then flew to Brisbane, rented a

car and drove to Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast. This area is famous for its miles and miles of white beaches and surfing. While there they visited the Australia Zoo, which was run by the late Steve Irwin, “The Crocodile Hunter".” Then it was off to Wellington, the capital of New Zealand. From there they took a ferry for a three-

hour trip to the South Island town of Picton. At Picton they caught a passenger train for a six-hour ride to Christchurch. “Christchurch is known as the Garden City of New Zealand, and the plethora of vibrantly colored parks lived up to the name,” Bain said. “The smell of fresh flowers permeated the air and was a pleasant experience for all of us. We walked to the Cathedral Square in the center of the city and took in the many shops and sights of this urban area. Once again I was impressed with the cleanliness of yet another major New Zealand city.” The Bains then toured Queenstown before reaching Mount Cook National Park. “Mount Cook is the highest mountain in New Zealand, and the heavy snow and glaciers flanking it make it a spectacle to see,” Bain said. “The calm serenity of the place was a welcome break from the bustle of the cities we had been staying in up to this point.” The local family returned to Christchurch for New Year ’s Eve, then it was on an airplane to Auckland, on the North Island. “We ended our trip with a dinner at one of the restaurants situated at the base of the Auckland Sky Tower, and then viewed the city from above from the tower itself,” Bain said. “We enjoyed the city lights as seen from above, outlining the dark sea of the harbor and shore. “With a new-found respect and adoration for these two countries, we departed Oceania back to South Korea,” he said. “Many are our memories to last a lifetime of these great places to visit and take in the wondrous views.”

Ti From page 1 touring local attractions and stay a second night before leaving Aug. 10 for Plattsburgh. A “cyclist village” will be set up at Ticonderoga Middle School with a “bistro” across the street. The village will accommodate bikers who want to camp — others will stay in local hotels — and serve as abase of operations in Ticonderoga. The school will provide its kitchen, cafeteria and showers. Velo Quebec Voyages will

pay all expenses associated with its use of the school. The village will also feature local vendors selling items such as fresh fruit, ice cream, hot dogs and corn on the cob. Local businesspeople interested in participating in the village should contact Brassard at the chamber by Email at bbrassard@ticonderogany.com McDonald pointed out the cyclists in the village will also need services. Velo Quebec Voyages will be hiring local people to assist its staff in Ticonderoga. There will also be opportunities for civic groups to make money by

helping during the tour stop, McDonald said. Velo Quebec Voyages is also looking for a local caterer to feed the cyclists at the school. The tour group has a specific menu and requires breakfast and dinner two days for upwards of 2,000 cyclists in shifts of 600 people each seating. Interested caterers can contact Brassard at the chamber for details. A local business is also being sought to operate the bistro, where alcoholic beverages will be served and entertainment provided. An events tent is required. Interested people should contact Brassard.

HAGUE — Cross country skiing is again available at Rogers Rock Campsite in Hague. The 6 kilometers of groomed trails are open daily. “There will be designated groomed trails all winter, weather permitting,” said Joe McCranels, volunteer coordinator. The trails, which include lights on the south loop for evening skiing until 11 p.m., are sponsored by town of Hague recreation department and the Warren County office of the state Department of Environmental Conservation. McCranels said the trails are maintained and groomed by the Hague Snowmobile Club. A registration box is provided by the DEC at the entrance to the campsite. “As a matter of record and for safety sake, all users are asked to register at each visit,” McCranels said. “A trail map and general information board are posted next to the registry box.” McCranels asked riders of snowmobiles and all-terrain vehicles to please avoid the cross country ski trails in the interest of skier safety. Information on the cross country ski trails is available from the Hague town hall at 543-6161 or at 585-9890.

“We want to reach out to the entire community and give everyone an opportunity to participate,” explained Suzanne Maye of ROOST, formerly the Lake Placid/Essex County Visitors Bureau. “It’ll be a big event.” That same weekend the annual Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce Antique Car Show and the Ticonderoga Main Street Partnership StreetFest are scheduled. While local officials look forward to the event, they hope the tour will have longer-lasting affects. “They (Velo Quebec Voyages) say about 80 percent of those in the

tour return to the area with their family later to visit,” Brassard said. “We hope that’s the case.” McDonald agreed. “If folks come to Ti and have a good time they’ll want to come back,” he said. “That will be good for the local economy as well.” Velo Quebec operates 60 tours a year on several continents. Their 2010 tours include two-wheeled trips in Europe, North America, Mexico, Cuba and Asia as well as Vermont and the Lake GeorgeTiconderoga-Plattsburgh tour.

SATURDAY January 23, 2010

Horace Nye nurses charged with harming patient WITHERBEE — A pair of Essex county nurses have been arrested for causing severe trauma to a quadriplegic patient during a routine

procedure and then failing to perform or seek any medical treatment for hours. Anne Marcotte, 49, of Willsboro and Billie Jo O’-

Donnell, 38, of Witherbee, are both employees of the Horace Nye Nursing home in Elizabethtown. Marcotte is a licensed

practical nurse and O’Donnell is a registered nurse. Marcotte and O’Donnell are each charged with reckless endangerment in the

second degree, endangering the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled person, and willful violation of health laws, all misdemeanors. They were arraigned in the Town of Elizabethtown Court, before the Honorable William Garrison and released on their own recognizance pending a future court appearance. They face a maximum penalty of one year in jail if convicted. According to court papers, in November 2008 Marcotte caused severe trauma to a quadriplegic patient during a routine

catheter change. Despite substantial bleeding, she failed to ensure that adequate and appropriate medical care was provided, or to seek emergency medical care for at least six hours. O’Donnell never came to assist the patient despite being aware that an injury had occurred. The bleeding persisted for two weeks and ultimately required two trips to the emergency room. The resident expelled numerous blood clots and lost a substantial amount of blood causing physicians to order two blood transfusions and antibiotics.

The VA needs approximately 2,600 square feet of handicap-accessible space, Piche said. She said the VA hopes to have an Essex County clinic open this summer. Scozzafava said he investigated housing the clinic at the new Moriah Health Center, but found there was not sufficient space. The old Republic Steel building and former hospital in Mineville don’t meet codes, he said. “If anyone has space available or knows of space please call my office,” Scozzafava said. The new VA clinic and a satellite office in Saranac Lake will treat veterans five days a week when it opens. Piche said the Department of Veterans Affairs is now recruiting staff for the Essex County clinic. There are 1,383 VA clinics in the country. The closest to Essex County, besides Elizabethtown Community Hospital, are located in Plattsburgh and Glens Falls. The VA clinic at Elizabethtown Community Hospital provides primary care services for veterans in Essex County and the surrounding areas. It also offers behavioral health care, lab work, a prescription service and a smoking cessation program. Specialty services are available through the VA Healthcare Network Upstate New York at Albany.

CROWN POINT • TIMES OF TI - 21

Supervisor learning quickly By Fred Herbst fred@denpubs.com

The design of the new Lake Champlain Bridge

Design OKed By Fred Herbst fred@denpubs.com CROWN POINT — A design has been selected for the new Lake Champlain Bridge — again. New York Gov. David Paterson and Vermont Gov. Jim Douglas announced Jan. 14 that a modified network tied-arch design will be used for the bridge. That’s the design selected by the bridge advisory committee and the public following information meetings in Ticonderoga in December. However, Vermont residents complained that there were no public meetings held on their side of the lake so the decision was put on hold. A public information meeting was then held in Vergennes, Vt., Jan. 4. Following that meeting Vermonters selected the same design as New Yorkers. In each state officials presented six different bridge designs and allowed online voting. The New York State Department of Transportation did not release the total number of votes, but said 80 percent were in favor of the modified network tied-arch design. The design is a steel structure with a basket-handle-type arch using network cables and box-tie girders supporting a composite deck. “The selection of a design concept for the replacement of the Lake Champlain Bridge is a major step in restoring this critical connection between New York and Vermont,” Paterson said in a release. “New York and Vermont’s transportation agencies identified the modified network tied-arch design as the overwhelming favorite of the people who

live near and depend on this vital link. “The next phase of design work will begin immediately as we continue our efforts to restore this important transportation connection,” Paterson said. Construction is scheduled to begin in the spring or early summer. DOT has said a new bridge will be open in 2011. The design must also be approved by the Federal Highway Administration, which will fund 80 percent of the cost of the new span. Construction costs are expected to be about $75 million.

CROWN POINT — It didn’t take long for Bethany Kosmider to learn about being town supervisor. On her first weekend as Crown Point’s top elected official, Kosmider was called at home by a constituent in crisis. “There were frozen water pipes at the home and power (electricity) had to be cut off,” Kosmider said. “It was very cold the family didn’t know where to turn. I spent several hours trying to help out. “In the end it was very rewarding,” she continued. “The woman who was affected came to my office later to thank me; she was very appreciative. It wasn’t necessary, I was just doing my job, but it was nice and I felt good about it.” Kosmider is spending a lot of time going through files and meeting people. “I’m get orientated,” she said. “Wendy (supervisor ’s clerk Wendy Ingleston) has been very helpful. She has a good handle on things and has taught me a lot.” The new supervisor is making changes. She has ap-

possible emergency. She has also created a school relations committee to improve communications between the town and local school district. “The school is a big part of our town,” Kosmider said. “We should be in constant communication.” Other committees have new members. “I want to create more energy on the committees,” she said. “I’ll expect a committee report each month.”

Although not in place yet, Kosmider has plans for a citizens advisory committee to assist the town board in making decisions and planning for Crown Point’s future. “I hope to have a citizens advisory committee appointed by summer,” she said. “I think there are a lot of good ideas in our community. The town belongs to the people who live here and I want to encourage their participation.”

Four generations of the Watrous family recently gathered in Crown Point. They include greatgrandfather Arthur Watrous, grandfather Arttie Watrous, father Mark Watrous and Reid James Watrous.

She’s even created a few new committees. “Bob is very energetic,” Kosmider said of her new deputy supervisor. “He’s working to bring some matters to the board that have been overlooked in the past.” At Patnode’s urging Kosmider created an emergency preparedness committee to ready the community for a

Lucky deer. At least so far ...

The user fee debate continues Tourism remains the largest worldwide industry and ecotourism represents the fastest growing segment of this market. Every year, millions of tourists travel to destinations designated as Protected Areas to enjoy opportunities for nature-based recreation. Such locations may offer a model for the Adirondacks in terms of sustainable tourism. Despite the fact that such Protected Areas often supply the most important elements of these recreational experiences, the parks typically capture very little of the total economic benefits derived from ecotourism. In order to sustain the economic viability of these unique regions, many PA’s have established entrance fees, user fees and travel permits to provide a funding source to invest in the necessary infrastructure to guarantee continued protection of the lands and waters. In Nepal, the Sagarmatha National Park, home to Mt. Everest, requires 30 percent of the money collected from mountaineering expeditions to be re-invested into the protection of the park. Mountaineering fees average about $50,000 per expedition and with an average of 5 expeditions per year, the system generates an estimated $400-500,000 annually to help conserve the park. In Equador, the Galapagos National Park finances a major portion of its budget by charging a substantial entry fee of $100 per visitor. With over 60,000 visitors annually, the fees provide an investment of over $5 million a year. Bonaire, a small island in the Southern Caribbean, instituted a scuba diving fee system, collected through the dive operators, to provide funding for the management of the park. The income generated through the sale of the diver badges covers salaries and operational costs of the park. Since 1994, Congress has permitted federal agencies to collect “user fees” on public lands. Numerous western states, including California, Colorado, Arizona, Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Utah followed suit and instituted similar programs. In the Adirondacks, the concept of user fees remains extremely complicated due to fact that there are no gateway entry points. There are no tollbooths. However, there are unlimited points of access to public lands. The collection of fees through traditional venues would require a huge investment in infrastructure and patrols. The most feasible method of collecting a fee would be to establish a visible badge, patch or sticker that outdoor travelers would be required to display when visiting public lands. Speaking before Congress on the issue of user fees on public lands, Mr. Derrick Crandall, president of the American Recreation Coalition, detailed five essential criteria that must be incorporated in the development of user fees. 1. The fees need to be equitable 2. The fee system needs to be efficient 3. The fees need to be convenient for the recreationist 4. The fee system needs to be coherent, flexible and integrated 5. The fee revenues need to be returned to benefit the resources, facilities and programs utilized by those paying the bill. Backcountry Badges could be purchased through local sport shops, stores, outfitters, tourist bureaus or online. For enforcement purposes, Forest Rangers would have the option of issuing badges on the spot, rather than issue tickets for non-compliance. The badges could be incorporated into the annual fees paid for boat or vehicle registration, sporting licenses and discounts could be provided for school age children, local residents, veterans, seniors and other deserving citizens. The visible display of a badge, or a sticker on a canoe, bike, and backpack would encourage compliance, and enforcement would be easy to accomplish for patrols. If all travelers were required to contribute, it would potentially eliminate the “us vs. them” issue that currently exists among the various user groups. Regardless of the process of implementing such a fee, the concept would only succeed if state provided a foolproof, ironclad guarantee (read: politician free) that all funds collected would only be utilized for conservation projects within the park.

and canoers. They do all of it for free.” LPS wrote “I think your article started out on the right track. Research. The state and towns along with the travel industry in New York are very lacks in investing in information gathering. The real challenge is developing relevant questions without bias. And assuring all interests are invited to provide input. But who can lead such an effort? How to fund it? My fear of adding a fee is that the rich will be able to access the prime locations while access for the regular guy and yes even the disadvantaged will continue to dwindle. Just look at access to so many lakes. Real estate has taken access away from so many people. It has taken access from both locals and visitors as older family run accommodations are sold. Now you're wondering if user fees for state land are a good idea. When I consider to whom the fees would be paid and who would administer that money I cannot believe much if any good would come from it.” KG wrote, “The state wants money because the state wastes money. The state spends money politically (where the most voters are). That's just part of why the state is in such lousy fiscal shape. They're grubbing for bucks any way they can. If they do spend money up here it will probably be to buy more land and take that land out of production for the people who make their living on the land. As the last few years have shown, tourism is not enough. We need diversity and it's there in the woods and has been historically.” AB wrote, “I like the idea of spending our tax dollars on the management of our public lands to enhance the nourishment of the human body, mind and spirit. Undeveloped recreation on public lands is much like education in our public schools. We don't charge kids to go to school and we should not charge citizens to visit public lands.” CB wrote, “Imagine how silly it sounds that I should be required to buy licenses to hunt, fish and trap my own land that I already pay ridiculous taxes on. How silly is it that hikers and bikers use the state lands for free while doing untold damage and requiring additional costs for search and rescue, trail head maintenance, plowing, etc. In short, it's time for those who make use of state lands for free to start ponying up some bucks.” BG wrote, “Being a hunter for 35 years and paying thousands of dollars for hunting licenses, as with all hunters, the time to share the wealth, must include all visitors. A fee is completely fair and beneficial to the preservation of this beautiful park.” VE wrote, “Enforcement of the fee system would probably cost more than it would gain and lose more in economic income than it would net. It is thinking like Mr. Hackett’s that will eventually make the Adirondack Park a playground for the rich and drive out the people who have lived and worked there and supported the State of New York’s most valuable asset.” Joe Hackett is a guide and sportsman residing in Ray Brook.

Lake Champlain Fishing Regulations

T

he winter of 2009-10 is now officially five weeks old and I’m pleased to say I think the deer have had it fairly easy so far. I did a little post-season scouting the other day and found deer to still be in their natural patterns — moving around freely and feeding with little trouble. I saw no real signs of yarding yet and even some late season breeding activity. Hope the mild weather keeps up for at least a few more weeks. In the meantime, I’ve been out on the ice probably a dozen times and have to say I haven’t personally seen the treacherous ice conditions the U.S. Coast Guard and other agencies have warned about. In fact, conditions are not at all unlike the past few years. That’s not to say dangerous ice doesn’t exist, I am just saying ice fishing opportunities are out there for those who use their heads. I’ve seen upward of two feet of ice on some of the smaller ponds already, and popular fishing destinations like Lake Eaton, Long Lake, Raquette Lake, Indian Lake, Blue Mountain Lake, Eagle Lake, Paradox Lake, Brant Lake and most of Schroon Lake all hold fishable ice. Many of the bays on Lake George and southern Lake Champlain are also buttoned up — with about a foot of good black ice on Port Henry’s Bulwagga Bay. Obviously, these conditions change daily, so be sure and call a local bait shop before planning a trip.

Ice fishing derbies on tap There are a number of fishing tournaments upcoming. The Great Sacandaga Lake Fisheries Federation Tournament is today, Jan. 23, from 7 a.m.-4 p.m. with $1,500 in prizes. Also, today is the Dunham’s Bay Fish & Game Club’s annual Stanley Yurgatis family fishing derby on Glen Lake. Perhaps the region’s largest derby — the Tupper Lake Challenge — will take place this year Feb. 6 on Simon Pond just south of the village of Tupper Lake. This is a $30,000 tournament and attracts hundreds of anglers. For more information, call 359-9715. The Bolton Classic, sponsored by the Glens Falls Kiwanis Club and the Chinga-Classic, Camp Chingachgook’s annual fund-raising derby, take place on Lake George the weekend of Feb. 20-21. The Bolton Classic is a one-day derby on Saturday, Feb. 20, at Veteran’s Memorial Park in Bolton. Call 743-1116 for more information. The Chinga-Classic is a lake trout and salmon derby headquartered at the camp at the end of Pilot Knob Road off State Route 9L. Fishing takes place from 7 a.m.-4 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday. Call 656-9426 for more information or visit www.chingachgook.org. The season wraps up with the Hague Fish and Game Club’s annual ice fishing tournament the weekend of Feb. 27-28 and the Schroon Lake Fish and Game Club tournament March 6 and 7. The Hague event features daily blind prizes as well as a giveaway of a Strikemaster auger, a Cold-Snap park and bib and a Clam fishing shelter. Call 543-6542 for more information or visit www.haguefishandgame.com. The Schroon Lake derby has also grown into one of the region’s largest with cash payouts in three categories and daily giveaways. Call Bunny Suprenant at 532-7685 for more information. John Gereau is managing editor of Denton Publications and an avid outdoorsman. He can be reached at johng@denpubs.com.

Feedback on Fees I have encouraged readers to provide feedback on this issue and you have responded in kind, though not always with kindness. Here is a sampling. JG wrote: “Why is it that every time there is a increase in license fees the state overlooks the hikers? Shouldn't the people who use the trails and trail head parking pay? Wouldn't a hiking license along with a parking permit go a long way in covering the states property taxes? Shouldn't the day of the free ride be over? AN wrote” We spend a lot of money just so the foolish hikers can get to the High Peaks. Let them start paying their own way...by charging all hikers a yearly fee and charge them when we have to send in the troops to save their ##$@% and bring them off the mountain tops. Patterson could make millions by charging hikers, bikers, kayakers

In an exciting flurry of teamwork, Mike and Dylon Springer, of Queensbury, pulled in the winning fish in the children’s 12 and under category with a 4-lb, 11-oz trout at last year’s Chinga-Classic derby.

The wonders of Vitamin C Do you really know the benefits of vitamin C? Vitamin C plays an important role in good health: • It helps to form the connective tissue that holds the many parts of your body together. • It keeps capillaries healthy so you don’t bruise easily. • It helps gums stay healthy so they don’t bleed. • It aids in the absorption of iron. Vitamin C is found in most fruits and vegetables, with citrus fruits, including oranges, grapefruits and their juices having the highest content. Don’t just reach for the vitamin C when you feel a cold coming on, make it a part of your daily healthful eating plan. (Taken from Mature Living)
