Community rallies to save prison Moriah Shock on closure list By Fred Herbst

Panthers topple Indian/Long Lake

MINEVILLE — It’s not a done deal. That’s the assessment of Moriah

Supervisor Tom Scozzafava a week after learning the the Moriah Shock Incarceration Facility has been targeted for closure in April 2011. The prison facility, which has 102 employees, is to be closed as part of Gov. David Paterson’s plan to trim the state budget deficit. “I’ve been on the phone everyday talking to anyone who will listen,” Scozzafava said. “I have to say they

(state officials) have been receptive. They’re listening. It’s not a done deal.” The facility in Mineville houses non-violent offenders in a military boot camp-type program that involves exercise, physical labor, academics and substance abuse treatment. It is one of four shock incarceration facilities in the state.

Scozzafava has no problem with budget cuts, but why Moriah Shock? “That’s the question,” Scozzafava said. “So far, no one has been able to answer it.” The supervisor said he has requested a face-to-face meeting with Paterson to plead his case.

Tankless water heaters


TICONDEROGA — Those looking to embrace winter will have their chance during WinterFest. Billed as an opportunity to “play in the snow,” the event will be held Saturday, Feb. 6, in Ticonderoga’s Bicentennial Park 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Winterfest is sponsored by the Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership and Ticonderoga Central School District. “I was looking for an event to get people outside and physically active,” explained Adrienne Weld, a physical education teacher at Ti High. “I thought a winter event would be great.” So, Weld approached school officials and the Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership with her idea. “We hope to make this an annual event,” Weld said. “The Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership has been great to work with and we hope a lot of children and their families attend.” WinterFest will feature snowshoeing, sledding, ice skating, snowman building and other activities. People are encouraged to bring their own equipment, although some equipment will be available for use. “We’re going to do the things I did growing up, the things our parents did,” Weld said. “It seems like no one wants to go outside in the winter anymore. We want to get families and their children involved.” There will be hot chocolate and coffee served by Ticonderoga Girl Scouts.

Senior housing project near reality Old hospital to become apartments By Fred Herbst TICONDEROGA — A project four years in the making may become reality soon. Liberty Affordable Housing has told Ticonderoga officials it has cleared nearly all hurdles in its plan to renovate the old MosesLudington Hospital into senior citizen apartments. “I can’t tell you how excited we are about this project,” said Davis Yohe, Liberty Housing deputy executive director. “The time is now; we want to make this happen.” Yohe and other Liberty Housing representatives explained the project to the Ticonderoga town board Jan. 14. The $4 million renovation will create 28 apartments, a community room, common areas, a multipurpose room, lounge, laundry, storage, security office and lobby in the building adjacent to the current hospital. The three-floor building will be made handicap accessible. Construction is scheduled to start in the spring of 2011 with the first tenants moving in 18 months later. Final funding approval is expected this summer. Former Supervisor Bob Dedrick told the town board he and local

officials have been working with Liberty on the project since 2006. “The old Moses-Ludington Hospital means a tremendous amount to us,” Dedrick said. “A lot of us were born there. We went there when we were sick. When I was 12 I would have died if not for the old Moses-Ludington. “We tried for years to find a use for that building, a way to save it,” he added. “We looked at creating a veterans’ facility, but there was no funding. Then Liberty Housing came along with this idea for sen-

ior housing. “The town really needs senior housing,” Dedrick concluded. “I think this is one of the greatest win-win situations in my life in Ticonderoga.” Yohe praised Dedrick for his support and foresight, noting the town asked, and received, an Adirondack Park Agency map change in 2007 that makes the project exempt from APA oversight. “We couldn’t do this without that APA amendment,” Yohe said. Yohe explained the old MLH will

be gutted and rebuilt, but will retain its facade. It will appear just as it did in its heyday, he said. The old MLH building is owned by Inter-Lakes Health, which owns and operates the current hospital, nursing home and adjacent Lord Howe Estates senior housing complex. When the apartments are ready, they’ll be operated by CRM Rental management, which now operates Lord Howe Estates in conjunction with Inter-Lakes Health. “This is something the commu-

nity can be very proud of when all is said and done,” said John Varecka, president of CRM Management. Varecka noted CRM is now making major improvements at Lord Howe Estates, including new windows and siding on units. “I think the people in Lord Howe Estates are happy,” he said, “and I’m certain the tenants in the new apartments will be as well.”

Ticonderoga Middle School eighth grade French classes may have celebrated National French Week a little late in 2009, but had a lot of fun. All French students could participate in the Tour De France, Ticonderoga style. The students chose partners and rode tricycles to race during each of their classes to get an overall class winner. First place winners were David Bevins and Jay Hebert, second place went to Johnathan Ashe and Nicolas Cox, third place winners were Kylie Austin and Kady Sharrow, and fourth place went to Devin Alkinburgh and Konner Bruce.

Trail to be extended By Fred Herbst TICONDEROGA — Plans for the extension of the LaChute River Walk Trail are complete. The blueprint was unveiled at a public meeting recently. Construction is expected to begin this spring. The paved trail now runs from Ticonderoga’s Bicentennial Park along the LaChute River to the downtown area, across Montcalm Street, and behind Lake George Avenue to the Upper Falls. With a $325,000 Transportation Enhancement Program grant, local officials plan to convert the existing train trestle at the end of the trail into a pedestrian bridge and extend the path to the Ticonderoga Middle School on Alexandria Avenue. The grant is federal stimulus money — the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. PRIDE was responsible for authoring the grant and is the administrative leader.

No one from the public attended the meeting to unveil the trail expansion plan, but residents along the path will be contacted and informed of the project. “While only town and county officials attended the meeting, PRIDE will be contacting those who were not able to attend so they will be able to see the design of the trail enhancements,” Sharon Reynolds of PRIDE said. “The community is welcome to pop in the PRIDE office during our regular business hours to view the design of the trestle conversion.” The three phase project includes converting the train trestle off Alexandria Avenue into a walking and biking pathway, crosswalk enhancements across Alexandria Avenue, new sidewalks to accommodate walkers and bikers along Alexandria Avenue to connect with the Ticonderoga Middle School walking path, lighting along the expanded portion of the trail and enhancements along the existing trail. For more information people can call PRIDE at 585-6366, ext. 103.


Ticonderoga Supervisor Deb Malaney, Joe Vilardo, Bill Dolback, Tony LaVigne of the Essex County Department of Public Works and Ken Martin from KA Martin Engineering look over the plans for the enhancements to the LaChute River Walk Trail, a project funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.

Hague firefighters honored To the Times of Ti: 2009 was a year of significant progress both in personnel and equipment advances for the Hague Volunteer Fire Department. Engine #344 was completely refurbished and put back in service early in the year, saving the possible expense of a new purchase. That was followed by the acquisition of a new Marine Fire and Rescue Boat which was equipped and put into service in the spring. Four new ice water rescue suits were purchased to replace worn 20 year old suits. Light weight forest and brush fighting pump and turnout gear were also acquired. In addition to our usual ongoing training, two all day seminars were held in conjunction with the Hudson Valley and Upstate Fire Police Associations, covering such topics as K-9 search and rescue, bomb squad and dive team demos, haz-mat, mass casualty incidents and eco-terrorism. In all of 2009 there were a total of 145 fire calls using 1,844 man hours and 117 ambulance calls using 1,278 man hours. So that this type of response capability is always there, it requires not only a significant effort on the part of the men and women of the department, but the very generous support of you, our neighbors, without which none of the above would be possible. We sincerely appreciate that you have always been there for us, as we hope to be for you. On a social note, a karoake night was held in conjunction with the Holiday in Hague at the fire house to benefit the Jason Laundree Fire Training Fund. It was a great success and the winners were 1, Alyssa Rodriguez, 2, Jocelyn Fischer, 3, Tom Haskell, Jr. At our annual Christmas party there were recognitions

he American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic, mutual - help, war time veterans organization. A community service organization which now numbers nearly 3 million members, men and women in nearly 15,000 American Legion Posts worldwide. The American Legion’s national headquarters is in Indianapolis, Ind., with additional offices in Washington, D.C. In addition to thousands of volunteers serving in leadership and program implementation capacities in local communities to the legion’s standing national commissions and committees, the national organization has a regular full time staff of about 300 employees. Ticonderoga American Legion Post # 224 was founded after WWI. It has been organizing Memorial Day celebrations since 1921. In 1927, they had an expert rifle team and in 1931 were instrumental in organizing the Ti American Legion Band; a community band with Dr. G. Peter Cook as leader. For many years they had an undefeated basketball team. Clifford Tobin was one of the active commanders during those years. The American Legion Auxiliary was established in Ticonderoga in 1919 to support the American Legion. Each year the women distribute poppys, the memorial flower made by the veterans. They organize fund raisers, card parties and food sales to purchase Christmas gifts for soldiers. The general mission of the auxiliary is : to support the American Legion programs for veterans, young people, and community; to provide for today’s needs while being advocates for a brighter future; to advance the understanding of patriotism and responsibility of citizenship; to promote individual integrity and family values; to ensure as volunteers, that auxiliary members continue to be the leaders in all that is good in this nation today, tomorrow and for generations to come through serving others first and not self. This series of articles is compliments of Ticonderoga Heritage Museum, located in the 1888 building at the entrance of Bicentennial Park.

Where do all those coupons come from?


Coupon Queen

manufacturer that offered $1 coupons with a print limit of 14! That was a high limit and it allowed me to really stock up on that item at a low price because I had so many coupons. Along the same lines, having as many coupons as possible definitely helps! People often ask how many newspapers I get. I currently have two different newspapers delivered on Sunday, a smaller, local paper and our big Chicago newspaper, because the coupons inserts in the two newspapers are different. In some areas, papers may offer “double inserts” for a very low rate. You might also see if your local newspaper offers a reduced rate to get a second, identical newspaper delivered on the day the coupons appear. I did this recently after numerous people in my Super-Couponing classes told me they were able to add a second copy of the large Sunday newspaper to their existing subscription for just 50 cents a week. Fifty cents is a small price to pay for double the coupons. On a good day, a coupon insert may contain $75 worth of coupons or more! If you go through your coupon inserts when they arrive, take note of any high-value coupons. We’ve recently seen $5 and $10 dog food coupons in the inserts! If your dog eats that variety of food, it may well be worth spending a dollar or two to pick up a second copy at the newsstand that week, just to get another copy of that high-value coupon. And you’ll have doubles of all the other coupons, too. Lastly … get creative! I have a friend who treats herself to a cappuccino on Sunday afternoons at her favorite coffeehouse shortly after lunchtime and offers to “clean up” the restaurant each week for them. She then takes home all the Sunday papers (and coupons) that numerous patrons have left behind!

: “I have been following your column, and a lot of what you have discussed I have implemented. You often talk about the number of coupons you use. Where and how are you obtaining so many duplicate coupons? I know I can print out multiple copies on-line from some of the coupon Web sites.” A: There are a few reasons I have a good amount of coupons available to me when a good sale comes along. I save all of my newspaper coupon inserts in their entirety each week. Many coupons often repeat every few weeks or months, especially for common items like cereal, bread, juice and personal care products. One of By Jill Cataldo the most common myths about coupons is that they all expire quickly. But the truth is that most of them have, on average, a three-month window for redemption; others may not expire for nine months or more. When a sale comes along, I usually have multiple coupons for a single item simply because I’ve saved all of my inserts. When the item goes on sale, I may be using coupons from several different “appearances” of that coupon in the inserts. Some may be several weeks old while others may be months old or even older. I will save my coupon inserts until everything inside expires. Doing this, it’s possible to build what amounts to a library of coupons at our disposal. Then, when we need them, those coupons are waiting to be looked up, cut out and used. As you mentioned, most printable Internet coupons do allow multiple prints of the same coupon. The average print limit is two per computer, but I will always try to click the “back” button in my Web browser and print again until I receive the message that the print limit for the coupon has been reached. It’s important to do this because companies do offer higher print limits at times. I can recall a major cereal

When reviewing an application, our loan experts take into consideration more than just your credit score.

TFCU mortgage rates are fixed and competitive. If you are considering buying a new home or refinancing, visit the TFCU online mortgage center to find answers to your questions, today’s rates, calculators and an online application.

Our goal is to help you find the loan solution that best meets your needs. A fixed rate home equity loan or a home equity line of credit (HELOC) could be the key to financing your long term goals, whatever they may be.

Our loan experts will help you secure a pre-approved loan before you take your first test drive. A pre-approved loan is like buying a car with cash and often with better terms and rates than the dealer has to offer, even for those with impaired credit.

Cell phones sought to aid STOP DV

A group of 15 teens and adults from St. Mary’s School in Ticonderoga and St. Francis of Assisi Church in Northville took a moment to take a group photo while rallying for life in Washington D.C. on Jan. 22. Pictured are Maureen Jebb, Kasi Wendell, Diane Jankowski, Katy Ryan, Judy Mildon, Kristen Manley, Sue Zelinski, Kara Zelinski, Lisa Wendell, Mary Ryan, Leah Junquera, Jake Mildon, Maura Jebb, Shelby Spaulding and Rebecca White .

Students march in D.C. rally TICONDEROGA — A group of 11 St. Mary’s School, Ticonderoga, students and parents along with friends from St. Francis of Assisi Church in Northville traveled to Washington, D.C., on the Lake Champlain 2010 Bus for Life on Jan. 21 to participate in the 37th annual National March for Life and Youth Rally and Mass at the Verizon Center. The group boarded a bus in Schroon Lake, which originated at St. Peter ’s Church in Plattsburgh, and traveled throughout the night to the nation’s capital. Once there, they joined 17,000 other young people and their chaperones in a Youth Rally and Mass which was organized by the Diocese of Washington. Hundreds of religious were present, as well as a representative bishop from the Vatican who gave a message from the pope to the entire group. The Mass was concelebrated

by local and visiting cardinals, bishops, rectors and priests. A highlight of the rally was the music by Steve Argrisano, Jesse Manibusan and Ike Ndolo. After the Mass, the group marched from the National Mall to the Supreme Court steps. The peaceful, mile long demonstration was carried out by thousands upon thousands of people of every age, who wished to show their disapproval of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision making abortion legal exactly 37 years ago to the day. Upon completing the march, the group traveled back to the North Country, again into the night, on the bus headed for Plattsburgh. Most of the Ticonderoga group was able to climb into their beds by 4:30 a.m. Saturday.

TICONDEROGA — Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union is collecting used cell phones throughout January and February to benefit the STOP Domestic Violence Center of Essex County. All donated cell phones will be turned into emergency 911 phones and distributed to victims of domestic violence free of charge. “We are very excited about this new fundraising opportunity,” said Kate Thompson, marketing coordinator at the TFCU. “By donating a used cell phone, anyone in our community, not just TFCU members, can assist local victims of domestic violence and help the environment at the same time without having to reach into their wallets.” Anyone can participate in the cell phone drive by bringing cell phones, chargers and accessories in any condition from any provider to TFCU branch locations and dropping them in the collection boxes during regular business hours. TFCU operates three branches located at Route 9N in Ticonderoga, Meacham Street in Port Henry and Court Street in Elizabethtown. Anyone can donate their phone and help victims of domestic violence without driving to a TFCU branch by mailing the cell phone with a pre-paid shipping label available at the following website, courtesy of Verizon Wireless. Before donating, people are asked to confirm that the phone’s service contract has been terminated and ensure all personal data has been cleared. Instructions on how to do so are available on the TFCU website, The STOP Domestic Violence Center will remove all data from the phones prior to redistribution. Any phones that they cannot use will be recycled. TFCU is a not-for-profit, cooperative financial institution offering membership to persons who live, work, worship or attend school in, or businesses or legal entities located in Essex County, Washington County or the towns of Hague, Horicon and Chester. For information go to

Sign ups will be at the Ticonderoga Armory Thursday, February 4th from 5-7pm and Saturday, February 6th from 11am-1pm. Ages are 4, 5 and 6. There is a $20 registration. If there is anyone interested in coaching let us know at signups. If you have any questions call Scott Montville at home 585-9086 or cell 586-2180. Thanks for the support! 67291

Ti negotiating to move police department By Fred Herbst TICONDEROGA — Negotiations are under way to move the Ticonderoga Police Department downtown. Local officials are in talks with the owner of the former Rite Aid building on Montcalm Street in hopes of relocating the police department. “It’s all in flux,” said Wayne Taylor, Ti police commissioner. “I’m confident and hopeful we can do

something.” Ticonderoga officials have long discussed moving the police downtown, but recently had to accelerate the discussion. The nearly 70-year-old concrete block structure on Burgoyne Avenue has developed a large crack from the foundation up the center of the back wall. The ground around the building is shifting, Ti trustee Steve Whitford said. He expressed fear a portion of the building could collapse. Putting money into the building is a waste, Whitford said.

“I don’t want to sink a lot of money into a dead horse,” he said. “We need to look to the future.” The future apparently includes the Rite Aid building. Taylor said the police commission investigated other possibilities and found them lacking. The Armory was excluded for police use since it houses youth activities and police don’t want children and criminals in the same building. The downstairs of the Community Building was excluded because of lack of space and parking. The former Rite Aid building has

a market value of $686,000, which makes it too expensive for the town to purchase, Taylor said. Comm Net Lease Realty, the Florida-based company that owns the building, is willing to lease it to the town for $3 a square foot, Taylor said. The building has 7,800 square feet. “We’re negotiating for less,” Taylor said. “We’ll continue to work at it. We need to make a decision soon.” The Ti PD only needs about 3,900 square feet of space, Taylor said. So if the former Rite Aid

building is leased to the town there will be room for another agency. Taylor and other Ti trustees agreed moving the police department downtown will have benefits beyond the building itself. They feel it can help revitalize Montcalm Street. “I feel to give downtown a fighting chance this is something we need to do,” Taylor said. “Looking to the future, I think this would be wise.”

Tourism plan formally adopted by town board By Fred Herbst

TICONDEROGA — The Ticonderoga town board has endorsed a plan it hopes will attract tourists to the community. Trustees formally adopted the Ticonderoga Quality Destination Plan during their December meeting. The plan was formed by a group of local volunteers and a professional consultant. It includes 11 actions designed to boost local business through tourism. “This is really exciting,” former Ti Supervisor Bob Dedrick said. “We’ve been working with the Ticonderoga Main Street Partnership and that’s going really well; now we have a second focus.” The town board also voted to seek grant funding to implement the plan. The plan was developed by representatives of the Ti town board, PRIDE, the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce, Ti His-

torical Society, the Essex County Industrial Development Agency, Ticonderoga Central School, North Country Community College, the Ti Heritage Museum, the Ticonderoga Main Street Partnership, the Lake Placid/Essex County Visitors Bureau and local businesses. Assisting was Egret Communications, a consulting firm hired through the county visitors bureau with grant money. Ticonderoga was one of five Essex County communities to receive funding to develop a destination plan. The others are Schroon, Moriah, Wilmington and North Elba, which includes the village of Lake Placid. “Through discussions with a diverse committee we developed actions we need to take and responsible parties to implement those actions,” Dedrick said. The supervisor noted Fort Ticonderoga attracts thousands of visitors to the communi-

Taylor also serves on the Ticonderoga town board and is the current Ti police commissioner. Kiwanis President Joyce Cooper welcomed Taylor to the luncheon.

‘Pocket park’

Ti lands grant for improvements

I know I was blessed to be born and raised in Ticonderoga but never knew how blessed until the morning of Dec. 2nd, 2009 when my brother, A. T. Morette was killed. There are so many to thank, Father Barry Lonergan for the beautiful mass, Father Bill for being there with my brother in his final hour, Deacon Elliott, Dr. Toni Sterm, Jim Hogan and the Emergency Room staff at our wonderful hospital. The Ticonderoga Emergency Squad, Lamoille Ambulance Service, North Country Life Flight, the Ticonderoga Fire Dept. for their beautiful service honoring my brother, Ti Fire Women’s Auxiliary for the beautiful reception. The Ticonderoga Police Dept., especially Sgt. Mark Johns, the State Police and BCI for their work and continuing investigation. For those wonderful people who stopped to help my brother - Gregg Austin, Richard Fisher, Jan and Sherry Morin on that tragic morning. My special thanks to my cousins who came from all over to be with our family, especially Kathy Schubin, Don and Louann Jaquish and Jim O’Bryan. Thank you to Bob Dedrick for also being there with our family that morning...and my wonderful neighbor, Donna Parent, For all who brought food, sat with us and the many, many cards and phone calls. There was such an outpouring of love and comfort to our family during this time - there are no words to express our thanks to all of you. Forgive me if I have forgotten anyone. “The Keeper of the Mountain” is looking down proudly on his beloved town. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Love, Ann Morette and Family

By Fred Herbst TICONDEROGA — Ticonderoga’s “pocket park” is about to get a facelift. The town of Ticonderoga has received a $32,000 Environmental Protection Fund grant to make improvements to Lakes to Locks Plaza, commonly known as the “pocket park” at the intersection of Montcalm Street and Lake George Avenue. The grant will be matched with in-kind local services, according to John Bartlett of the Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership. “The money will be used to purchase materials,” he explained. “The local share will be in-kind services provided by volunteers, the highway department and the town beautification crew.” Plans call for paving and landscaping in the small park located between two businesses on Montcalm Street. Benches will be placed. A screen will be erected on the west side to separate the park from a commercial building and posts will separate the plaza from an adjacent roadway leading to a parking lot. Signage will be erected directing people to public parking and to the nearby LaChute River Walk Trail. A paved path will lead to the trail. Bartlett said the concept for the improved park came from the town’s streetscape plan that was developed a year ago. The grant application was prepared by Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership design committee. The grant will be administered by PRIDE.

Tourism From page 12 ty each year, but most of them are day visitors — many of whom never reach the hamlet. “We feel downtown Ti can be a destination point that can compliment the fort as a destination point,” he added. “We want to bring people from the fort into town and keep them here for a day or more. Lodgings, restaurants, all our businesses would be helped.” The plan calls for: — creation of a steering council to continually review and update the destination plan; — use of marketing to promote local activities and attractions; — construction and operation of a replica historic French sawmill along the LaChute River as a tourist attraction; — continued restoration and revitalization of the downtown area; — efforts to attract and expand tourism-related businesses and creation of incentives for more lodging; — appointment of a “point person” to lead efforts for funding private sector growth and government support of economic development; — strengthening Ticonderoga’s image as a history destination and planning more history-related events; — recruiting and developing an active arts community; — maintaining and extending the walk way along the LaChute River; — maintaining and expanding public access to water-related and outdoor recreational activities; and — providing hospitality and tourism training for local workers and residents.

I think it’ll be a great day.”

Port Henry Cub Scout Pack 100 recently held a bake sale to raise money for their annual pinewood derby. From left are Isaiah Bullock, Cooper Bullock, Scott Rice, Michael Rollins and Sam Gangi. Also taking part was Josh Hayford.

day at the Port Henry Knights of Columbus. Assemblywoman Teresa Sayward and state Sen. Betty Little have pledged to fight for the Moriah camp. “I will work hard to prevent the closure of Moriah Shock Correctional Facility,” Sayward said. “We can’t afford to lose any more jobs in the Adirondacks.” That economic argument is key to saving the Moriah prison, Scozzafava said. The Moriah Shock Incarceration Facility was constructed in 1988 as part of a state effort to boost the local economy. That same year Moriah was designated as the lone rural state Economic Development Zone. “That camp (Moriah Shock) is part of a state program to help this area after the economic devastation caused by the closing of the mines,” Scozzafava said. “The governor ’s office nor the Department of Correc-

tions were aware of that history.” Scozzafava said closing a prison in an urban area would have less economic impact than closing Moriah Shock. There are simply fewer economic opportunities in Moriah, he said. “The bottom line is that if you close a facility in a more-populated area there is a better chance for re-use of that facility,” he said. “If they close this camp it’ll still be empty 50 years from now. The private sector won’t go into that site.” Under Paterson’s proposal no one will lose their job, but Moriah Shock employees would have to transfer to another corrections facility. “The next closest facility is 60 miles one way,” Scozzafava said. “That will create a tremendous hardship for employees and force people from our community.” The 200-bed facility is the town’s second-largest employer. The largest is Mountain Lakes Services, an agency that assists the developmentally disabled.

If Moriah Shock closes there will be ripple affect through the community, Scozzafava said. “We can not afford to lose this facility,” he said. “If it closes we’ve lost those jobs forever. The impact on small businesses in the town will be substantial.” In addition to the Moriah shock incarceration facility, Paterson has proposed closing two minimum-security facilities and one mediumsecurity facility. The other proposed closures are Lyon Mountain in Clinton County, Butler in Wayne County and Ogdensburg in St. Lawrence County. NYSCOPBA, the union that represents correction officers, will fight the closures, said Donn Rowe, union president. “Any cuts to the Department of Corrections should start with the top-heavy bloated bureaucracy within the agency and not the safety of the public,” he said in a prepared statement.

Health Report 2002

By Bonnie Sprinkle

By Bonnie Sprinkle


n 2009 and now 2010 health care reform and affordable insurance plans are in the works, maybe it will happen in the near future, maybe. I was encouraged by the President’s speech and heard his hope to reduce waste by streamlining care, reduce needless surgery, make preventative tests affordable or free and reduce preventable conditions through education and wellness programs. In my opinion, this cannot happen with the majority of the population showing such a rapid rise in preventable conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and much more. In January of 2002 I was very encouraged by the words of the Surgeon General. The following is what I wrote at that time:

The Surgeon General issues a community call to action as health problems resulting from overweight and obesity could reverse many of the health gains in recent decades. In preparation of this report several strategies were reviewed for their proven scientific effectiveness. Two important ones being to: 1) Change the perception of obesity so that health becomes the chief concern, not personal appearance. 2) Educate health care providers and health profession students on the prevention and treatment of overweight and obesity across the lifespan. "Overweight and obesity are among the most

er, sleep better, an added spring to the step, in general feeling better. Bodyfat reduction is the best true guideline, rather than weight loss. Many of our current popular diet programs promote weight loss, but with bodyfat percentages increasing and health risks increasing with these weight loss programs. We can see the results of the last few decades of dieting. Arthritis, diabetes, hypertension are for the most created by a few years of poor eating. Modern medicine can keep us alive longer, it’s up to us to improve the quality of those years. Remember the above was written almost 10 years ago and obesity figures have only increased since then. No longer can it be assumed that only the unlucky few get these preventable conditions and it’s just the luck of the draw. Even heredity might not play the part that many believe. What a

Sprinkle From page 25 pressing new health challenges we face today," Health & Human Service Secretary Tommy G. Thompson said. "Our modern environment has allowed these conditions to increase at alarming rates and become a growing health problem for our nation. By confronting these conditions, we have tremendous opportunities to prevent the unnecessary disease and disability they portend for our future." Surgeon General David Satcher recently said "Overweight and obesity may soon cause as much preventable disease and death as cigarette smoking. People tend to think of overweight and obesity as strictly a per-

SATURDAY January 30, 2010 difference healthy eating and moderate activity could make. We as individuals need to take responsibility for what we ingest and our activity levels. The old adage move it or lose it has proven very true. Wanda Sykes in a recent comedy routine joked about health care reform, saying that she’s for it but apparently some aren’t. Adding that it should be for everyone, well…..everyone except competitive eaters because “if you eat 65 hot dogs in 20 minutes and your hearts stops beating….then that’s on you.” Well, that and I’d have to add if you eat poison and junk every day for the majority of your eating, well maybe that’s on you. Until the majority of the population, rather than the minority, understand and practice a healthy lifestyle, insurance can never be affordable.

sonal matter, but there is much that communities can and should do to address these problems.” Administrators of Insurance Programs and employers need to take a serious look at Preventative Health Care Programs and the importance they play in reducing healthcare and insurance costs for everyone. Obesity among adults has doubled since 1980, while overweight among adolescents has tripled. Only 3 percent of all Americans meet at least four of the five federal Food Guide Pyramid recommendations. Forty percent of adults engage in no leisuretime physical activity at all. Weight loss, while the long term goal, should not be the initial goal of a successful return to a health/obesity reduction program. The first results should be: increased energy, better thinking pow-

Beating the winter blues, step by step W

hen the graceful snowfall quickly turns into the blizzard from the North Pole, it’s easy to get irritable and downright depressed when your stuck inside. Although school’s out during the usual snowstorm, getting to work in the early morning winter hours can be stressful. Coming home after a long day to be greeted by the cold once again can do a number on your overall outlook. Sure fire signs of the winter blues include lack of motivation, low energy, a lowered stress tolerance level. Some people attribute the seasonal sensitivity to Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), a condition that leads to serious energy lags, mood swings, and other symptoms associated with depression. When you need a pick-me-up (and the coffee just isn’t cutting it),

there’s always room for an attitude and outlook adjustment. Beating the winter blues is easier when you simply accommodate for it; if you know you’re going to get down quickly, taking preventative steps may be a wise choice. Here are five easy ways to beat the winter blues. 1. Don’t oversleep. It’s oh-so-easy to take multiple naps and sleep longer hours when it’s dark and dreary. Avoid the habit, and you’ll fare well in the long run. Oversleeping doesn’t provide you with the extra rest you think you’re getting. Unless you’re a super-athlete or work extended hours, limit your sleep cycle to the standard 6-8 hours. And stick with a sleep cycle! Too many disruptive patterns can create mood disturbances themselves. 3. Exercise your cares away. A natural antidepressant, vigorous exercise can boost your mood im-

mediately. Lighter, ongoing exercise will keep you in tip-top shape before Spring break creeps up on you! 4. Up your Omega-3’s: Your diet is critical to long-term health and overall wellness. Omega-3’s are a

natural source of essential fatty acids. They keep you healthy, and some studies have shown a natural link between fish oils and depression. 5. Treat yourself to a massage. Regular massage therapy will stabilize and reduce stress naturally, giving you the perfect reason to step out of a routine for a while. A massage can not only relieve general aches and pains, but you’ll sleep better and can detox naturally over a period of time. Make a commitment to take charge of your health this winter by adding an appointment or two to your monthly regiment. Whenever you feel that slide of mood decline creeping up on you this winter season, don’t despair! Anticipation can help you plan ahead for a healthy, happy, and even enjoyable few months.

Plan questioned To the Times of Ti: Geri Hedden’s recent letter to the Times of Ti inspires me to write as well. I hope everyone who has an interest in the Schroon Lake area will attempt to read the new “Tourism Master Plan.” I have no “pony in the race” so to speak, but have read the plan as a matter of interest. There are a few things that I questioned right off: First, why was it necessary to go to New Mexico to find a consulting company to evaluate tourism in the Adirondacks? I would think that supporting consultants in the park itself would be part of keeping our identity and dollars at home. Secondly, if I hired a communication company who didn’t even take the time to check the spelling in their final presentation, I would certainly wonder about their competence in everything else. Moving on to the plan, it seemed to be a cut-and-paste template to promote the development of a new hotel downtown. I assume this is going to be shoved through using grant money, whether or not it is good for the village, traffic patterns, water or sewage departments, or the already established and/or struggling small businesses in the area. The very first statement in the plan is a bunch of gobbledygook about “establishing tourism identity.” I quite successfully achieved an MBA and so have mastered the language that is meant to sound important and convey nothing. The second statement is “To evolve the lodging product.” (You already know where this is going!) The number one “product” listed for Schroon Lake is “older lodging establishments” (In their eyes this trumps everything else, including the golf course, beach, etc). The introductory plan also claimed that the primary view of Schroon Lake from the Northway corridor is of “decaying” and outdated lodging. I would argue that the primary view entering the village is dominated by the Dollar Store and the Landings. The number one gap, on the next page, is “Lodging that matches destination and current market demands.” (Were any surveys done of actual tourists, by the way, to determine this?) The next three paragraphs in the plan all repeat that “lodging” is the number one flaw in Schroon Lake. By the time we get to page 13, we find that – guess what? “Lodging issues are driving down the demographic profile of Schroon Lake’s visitors.” Next paragraph, “Potential New products and experiences,”,the first point is “New Lodging.” On page 14, after more cut and paste gobbledygook, we find: “Products that Conflict with Destination Appeal: Outdated Lodging (sometimes in poor repair)” And also: “What Makes This (or Would Make This) a Destination: • Current Quality Lodging, preferably oriented to the lake, woods, or a pond” On page 15 we have a summary and point number one is: “Schroon Lake is certainly challenged because it lacks a current and competitive lodging component. The lack of those facilities precludes Schroon

Lake’s success among visitors” By page 17 we find: “Schroon Lake needs to concentrate on the following issues to rebuild and retool its tourism economy to be vibrant and to attract and serve higher-paying clientele: • Schroon Lake needs a new core of mid to upper-mid range lodging offerings • Schroon Lake will benefit from developing architectural standards that reinforce the classic Schroon Lake look.” Hmm, back to a couple of the more recent and dynamic additions to town, the aforementioned Landings and the Dollar Store…..are these what the powers that be mean by “reinforce the classic Schroon Lake look?” I certainly hope not! And yet they were approved by the planning board. Then comes the brilliant summary of Egret Communications: “Those famous Adirondack chairs were designed to sit at a lakefront lodge and look out over the water – it’s time to make that happen again in Schroon Lake.” Hmm……I thought the Adirondack chairs were fine looking over the water right on the beautiful, public town beach, where they are accessible to all. I believe the report is 48 pages, which will prevent many from downloading it. There is only one real objective that I can see however, which I believe this brief summary emphasizes, which is to build at least a 100 room hotel in downtown. There is not one single suggestion to build a bike trail, for instance, so that those who rent bicycles or stay in the lodging, would not have to jockey with logging trucks on Route 9. There was no suggestion to sponsor a single equine activity, or to invest in a single visual arts event. Those are just the few things that come to my mind, and I would imagine surveying others would result in many more ideas. Then there are several claims that second home owners and lakefront home owners are a negative (interesting since the main proponent of the “new lodging” claimed in no less than the New York Times last decade, if I remember correctly, that what Schroon Lake needed at that time was $500,000 houses!); does no one suppose that these people too could be interested in supporting local business? Just because they don’t require some of the spiffy new lodging doesn’t mean they don’t have money to spend in restaurants, theatres and art galleries. In short, I believe the tourism master plan is extremely myopic, and frankly, insulting to the current operators of lodging in the Schroon Lake area. I would like to see the surveys that were used in concluding what visitors want, what they see, what they do, and what variety of things they might like to do if anything other than a new lodging was introduced. I doubt, however, that any real market research was done. I am glad no taxpayer dollars were used in preparation of this document. I encourage everyone to get involved. The lopsided development of downtown will benefit one or two developers and eventually be paid for by all. Dorothy McDevitt Schroon Lake

Still waiting To the Times of Ti:

Prison decision is...shocking To the Times of Ti: I am a Moriah native writing in shock, sadness and confusion over the governor ’s proposal to close the Moriah Shock Prison. As you know, the town of Moriah and Essex County are an economically depressed area, a problem that has recently been exacerbated by the closure of the Champlain Bridge at Crown Point. The closure of the Moriah Shock Prison will do nothing except drown an already struggling community in unemployment, increasing tax burdens and deeper depression. The jobs lost by the prison closure will be irreplaceable. The fact that there are no available jobs is evidenced by the amount of people who, despite the bridge closure, continue to commute almost 100 miles out of their way in order to keep their employment in the state of Vermont. Please do not take this enormous source of employment away from the people of Essex County. To do so will destroy our community. It is a very real possibility that if our only forms of income and employment are continuously stripped away, our Adirondack communities will cease to exist. Please support those living in Essex County by writing to Gov. Paterson and the Commissioner of the Department of Corrections to tell them to keep our prison open. We are fighting for our community! Elizabeth Leveille Port Henry

Disappointed with governor

I’m writing in response to the column written by Fred Herbst titled “Temporary bridge would sure be nice” in the Jan. 16 edition of the Times of Ti. How dare you or Teresa Sayward imply that people didn’t want a temporary bridge. Yes, a bridge in Putnam is too far south. The people wanted a temporary bridge in Crown Point, preferably near the site of the old bridge. You have a quote from Sayward saying “That bridge would be in place and in use right now had we pursued that option.” I have one word to say to that, (expletive). We were told we would have a ferry, at Crown Point, by the end of December. That date has come and gone. Do you honestly believe that a bridge could have been built and in use by now when we can’t even get ferry service completed on time? I don’t fault anyone doing the physical labor. It’s brutal weather out there to be working in. I blame the decision makers at the “DUH-partment of Transportation.” Would you put a new roof on a house that has a crumbling foundation? I don’t think so. Why (expletive) would you sink a million dollars into the upper deck of a bridge before inspecting the concrete foundation that holds it up? If the foundation had been checked first, we would have saved a million dollars, closed the bridge early last summer, had a temporary bridge and/or ferry in place by now, and construction already started on a new bridge. You took a stab at the Ticonderoga Ferry too. All I can say to the owner ’s and operators on the Ti Ferry is God Bless all of you! The Ticonderoga ferry kept some sanity to and insane situation. I don’t want to get on a ferry every day. I don’t want to get on a bus every day. I don’t want to drive to Whitehall every day either. You are correct, “A temporary bridge would sure be nice” if it was in Crown Point! I heard a radio personality use the trite “glass half full/half empty” analogy recently in regard to all of this. He would prefer to see the glass half full. I see “a glass full of crap,” doesn’t matter if it’s half empty or half full, nobody wants it! Glen A. Buell Crown Point

Coaches thanked To the Times of Ti:

To the Times of Ti: I am writing this letter to express my disappointment that our governor failed to show for yet another historical event in Crown Point in 2009. As leader of our State of New York, his failure to attend our quadricentennial celebration in September was an embarrassment to many of us. Vermont’s governor attended the celebration as did the Ambassador of France, several noted dignitaries and our local legislators. It was a momentous event and our governor was not there. Again, Dec. 21 was the implosion/demolition of the historic Lake Champlain Bridge between New York and Vermont at Crown Point. It was a well-devised plan by the state to keep the media and dignitaries near the bridge and keeping the general public out, while Vermont allowed everyone near the bridge and they even got to pick up mementos from the downed bridge. New York was over-controlled with carloads and truckloads of people from DEC, DOT, state police, sheriffs, Coast Guard, fire police and more, hauling four wheelers, snowmobiles and even hover craft behind them. What a wasted expense to the State of New York that is already nearing bankruptcy. If the governor has no interest in the North Country, then he has no business being our governor. I am thoroughly disgusted in the mismanagement of my money, of the bride demolition and the disregard for the people of this area.

Our community is lucky to have a variety of sports opportunities for children of all ages. A big thank you to all the volunteer coaches, organizers and parents who make this healthy fun possible — giving time and expertise throughout the seasons. We are grateful for the Ticonderoga Youth Commission-sponsored coed soccer, biddy basketball and ski programs with Marge Hurlburt’s leadership. Our children have benefitted from these programs for many years. Last fall, Shelley Young did a great job organizing a soccer program for over a hundred children in first through sixth grades. They practiced and played locally, and traveled to play teams from all over Essex county. Coaches Young, Lisa Wright, Melody Borho,Lacey La Course, Butch Davis, Heather Alkinburgh and Tom Pike all put in many hours. (I hope I didn't forget anyone.) Thanks also to Ed Nolan for a good job organizing the downhill skiing opportunity for local students at Gore, and to all the coaches currently volunteering with biddy basketball. Many thanks to each of you who give your time and energy, often without public recognition, to help make this a wonderful place to live. Malinda Bergamini Chapman and family Ticonderoga

Joan Burns Crown Point

Former town supervisor appreciated To the Times of Ti: We would like to take this opportunity to thank you, Mr. Dale French, for all of your hard work and dedication for the town of Crown Point. In the past 14 years, your excellent working relationship’s, with other town officials and employees, has led to much success for

Crown Point. The sewer and water projects and other various projects, paid for by grants, were all accomplished under your watch. Your ability to run, maintain and improve the town, where needed, like keeping taxes low, was “very much” appreciated. We thank you for your responsible use of taxpayer ’s dollars, your

service, and your dedication to the town of Crown Point and all of its people. Thanks again. The Crown Point Republican Committee Bill Mildon, Stella Mildon, Ivan Macey, Eric Ingleston and Kelly McGeehan

Aimee Lavarnway

Schroon native feels pain of Haiti tragedy By Fred Herbst SCHROON LAKE — The earthquake devastation in Haiti has left Aimee Lavarnway speechless. “I don't even know what to say,” she remarked. Lavarnway, a 1997 Schroon Lake Central School graduate, has worked in Haiti as part of the Engineers Without Borders program, helping local residents improve their water systems. She was scheduled to return next month, but that trip is on hold indefinitely as Haiti deals with the aftermath of a 7.0-magnitude quake that rocked the impoverished nation on Jan. 12. More than 200,000 people are estimated to have been killed. “Some of us are still in regular contact with the Port-au-Prince-based guys that we’ve traveled with and I can’t even begin to imagine

Aimee Lavarnway, a 1997 Schroon Lake Central School graduate, has worked in Haiti as part of the Engineers Without Borders program, helping local residents improve their water systems. She has been in contact with Haitian friends since the Jan. 12 earthquake that killed an estimated 200,000 people.

To donate to Haiti relief go online what they’re going through,” Lavarnway said. “One of them said it’s like they’re living in a war zone. Another sent me a text message yesterday (Jan. 20) that said they had finally found his aunt and they had to bury her in her yard. “People are just terrified,” she continued. “There were two more aftershocks so far today — there have been more than 50 total, all with magnitudes of 4.2 or greater — and I get texts saying how everyone is freaking out every time. They’re afraid to be inside. A hospital in Petion-Ville (a suburb of Port-au-Prince) has occasional posts on Facebook and they said that during the aftershocks, there is chaos while the patients all panic and their family members try to carry them outside. “Our contact who works in Les Anglais and lives in Les Cayes said last week that he already knew that he had lost 40-45 friends and family members,” Lavarnway said. “There are very few jobs in the provinces, so pretty much every family in the country has at least one member who had moved to Port-au-Prince to try to find work. A Haitian well driller based in Les Cayes emailed last Saturday and said that his parents were living in Port-au-Prince and that he still hadn’t been able to contact them.” While most of the damage was in the capital city of Port-au-Prince, the aftermath is stressing rural areas as people flee the city. “Other contacts in Les Cayes, probably about 100 miles from Port-au-Prince, said that people are walking there from the city,” Lavarnway said. “Some people there are estimating that the population of their city will likely double as a result of the mass exodus from Portau-Prince. “The huge influx of people fleeing the city is going to have an enormous effect on all the smaller communities where water and food were already scarce,” she said. Lavarnway is a geotechnical engineer for Shannon & Wilson, Inc. in Portland, Ore. She specializes in subsurface investigations, foundation design, landslide mitigation, seismic hazard analysis, retaining wall design and construction monitoring. She has a bachelor ’s degrees in civic engineering in geology from Lafayette College and a

master ’s in geological sciences from the University of Notre Dame. She is the daughter of Mary and Kevin Lavarnway of Schroon Lake. Through Engineers Without Borders Lavarnway worked in Les Anglais, about a 125-mile drive from Port-au-Prince, last June. “Two spring-fed distribution systems were constructed in the mid-80s and were still functioning when we started,” Lavarnway explained. “Our initial task is to provide water treatment for these systems because they are both contaminated with bacteria and people get sick. They then sustained damage during the series of four hurricanes that hit Haiti in 2008. A group went for a site assessment trip in February 2009, which ended up also including some substantial repairs to some of the damaged pipes. “We had heard that there were still some portions of the larger system that were not functioning properly and that the flow of water from the spring to the reservoir was much slower than it had been before the hurricanes,” she said. “Our main goals for that trip were to assist the plumbers in resuming full flow to the reservoir and install a chlorine tablet feeder on that system, as well as continue communicating with the community leaders on their goals and needs. We ended up getting the full flow restored, meeting with several community members, and beginning an assessment of the other distribution system.” Lavarnway was to go back to Haiti next month to finish the project. That trip is now in doubt. “The primary objective of the trip we had planned for February was to install a chlorinator on the bigger reservoir and train the community on its use and maintenance,” she said. “Although we no longer have a concrete schedule for when we will be able to return, we are maintaining contact with our friends there and will reschedule the trip as soon as enough stability has returned that our trip support team will feel able to leave Port-auPrince and is able to obtain the materials we will need,” she said. “Ideally, we would like to travel before the hurricane season begins in July as the need for clean water in Les Anglais is only increasing.”

Church collecting for Haiti relief CROWN POINT — The First Congregational Church of Crown Point will hold a special collection to support relief efforts in Haiti. The congregation recently voted to make two separate donations of council funds to Samaritan’s Purse, a lead non-profit agency on the front lines of the work in Haiti following the earthquake, as well as hold an ongoing special collection for anyone who would like to send funds to relieve the suffering. Anyone wishing to donate is invited to place it in the basket in the church or send a donation clearly marked as Samaritan’s Purse Donation to Associate Pastor Gregg L Trask at 31 Mariner Way, Crown Point 12928. People may also give donations to any church member. Samaritan’s Purse is a non-denominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world. Since 1970, Samaritan’s Purse has helped meet needs of people who are victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease and famine.

First Congregational Church of Crown Point invites the community to it at 9:30 a.m. Sunday for worship. This week’s medita-

tion will be given by Trask. Information is available online at First Congregational

Crown Point Central School has named its students of the month. Cited were Cameron Harrington, Michaela Gunnison, Tony Rodriguez and Andre Blanchard.

County manager responds to rumors of nepotism By Matt Bosley ELIZABETHTOWN — Amid calls for better disclosure in Essex County government hiring practices, Essex County officials are going the extra mile to dispel surging rumors of nepotism. Several county officials have drawn scrutiny following a news article earlier this month that mentioned county positions recently granted to their relatives. Most prominent among them is County Manager Dan Palmer, who, together with his wife, Board of Supervisors Clerk Deborah Palmer, is related to at least five other county employees. Palmer, along with many town supervisors, has been quick to dispel any implications of nepotism, repeatedly stating that he has been completely up front with the hirings of all his relatives and has not imposed undue influence over the hiring process. In a Jan. 22 interview, Palmer acknowledged that many county employees are related to each other, as has been the case for many years; but he said that doesn’t mean any unethical hiring practices have occurred. “The worst thing a department head can do is hire a bad employee,” said Palmer, noting how, after six months on the job, employees in many positions become permanent and it becomes very difficult to remove them from the position. For that reason, Palmer explained, many department heads tend to choose someone whose family has a history of employment at the county because they see them as a safe bet. “You know that they have a strong work ethic; they come from a family with a strong work ethic, so it’s a known quantity,” Palmer said. One example is Brianne Weber, Deborah Palmer ’s daughter, who was hired in 2008 to work in the County Clerk’s office. The hire, which required no Civil Service test

or minimum qualifications, was authorized by County Clerk Joe Provoncha, Dan Palmer’s cousin. “I think it had a lot to do with the fact that he knew Deb,” Palmer said, noting his wife’s long record as a hard-working, dependable county employee. Though there may be blood ties between some county employees, Palmer said it doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re breaking rules against nepotism, where officials use their power as leverage to get friends and family a job. While many town supervisors can and do write letters of recommendation or make phone calls on behalf of friends and family who’ve applied, Palmer explained, they are not allowed to imply that they will take any reciprocal action based on the decision of whether to hire a specific person. “I’ve never called any department [about a hire] because I understand that when you’re in a position of influence, those single phone calls are a violation of ethics policy,” said Palmer. “People come to me and ask, ‘Can you put in a good word for me?’ and I say, ‘No, I really can’t.’” One thing Palmer said he’d like to see change in the county’s hiring policy is how it currently allows for management staff to supervise their own relatives. Department heads can also hire relatives in their own department with notification to the personnel director and the chairman of the board. For his part, Palmer said he has 11 staff working directly under him, and none of them are his relatives. “Do I oversee the department heads? Sure I do,” said Palmer, “but in a county this small, it’s just not possible to say that nobody can have anyone related to them under them somewhere.” Some have suggested the fact that Palmer serves alongside his wife is, in itself, a conflict of interest. Palmer disagrees. Both Palmer’s position and that of his wife are immediately subordi-

nate to the board of supervisors, he said; there is no interplay between the two, and therefore no possibility for impropriety. “I don’t oversee the Clerk of the Board and the clerk doesn't oversee me,” said Palmer. “She doesn’t answer to me and I don’t answer to her.”

Exempt positions Civil Service exams, which are administered periodically by the New York State Department of Civil Service, serve as one of the main roadblocks to favoritism in county government hiring. Such exams require department heads to hire from among the top scorers on the written tests – normally the top three for a given position. Only when the someone in the top three turns down the job do applicants further down the list come up for consideration. However, as Palmer explained, some county positions are exempt from Civil Service requirements and were designed to allow the appointing authority to hire whoever they want. Examples include Patti Doyle, Deborah Palmer’s sister-in-law, who was recently hired as confidential secretary to District Attorney Kristy Sprague. Shona Doyle, also Deborah Palmer’s sister-in-law, was appointed in her place as deputy election commissioner, also an exempt position. “The difficult thing about those jobs is you can have your job one day and not the next,” he said, noting that the people filling those positions often change when the head of the department changes. “The exempt positions in public service are really employees ‘atwill,’” Palmer added. “If we want you, we want you; if we don’t, we don’t.” Other positions, such as low-level laborers and trainees, have no minimum requirements, civil service exam, or job specifications. Department heads can hire whichever ap-

Wild storms and wild skiers

In the wake of the recent thaw and heavy rains, most area lakes are awash with several inches of water. With streams and rivers running high with the runoff, anglers should avoid traveling near inlets, outlets and other areas where current can weaken the ice.


arlier in the week, the first major thaw of the season roared through the region, delivering wind gusts in excess of 50 mph and horizontal rains. With up to two inches of rain reported in some areas, the storm provided a natural Zamboni that refreshed ice surfaces to a polished gleam. However, with forecasts indicating that a snowstorm was soon to follow, lakes will likely be sloppy for a while, with a slushy mix of standing water and snow.

Skiing has gone Wild In Tupper Many area residents have fond memories of learning how to ski at a local ski center. At one time, these small, community ski centers could be found in nearly every township

in the Adirondacks. At one time, the Empire State served as host to more ski centers than any other state in the nation. But, since the late 1960’s, New York state has lost an estimated 350 historic, ski centers. The small hills provided beginners with a safe, easy and relatively inexpensive introduction to the sport. Most of the centers featured rope tows, a J-bar or a T-bar to haul prospective daredevils up the slopes. Chairlifts were primarily reserved for ski centers that were built on mountains, not hills. The small, community ski centers were places where parents could drop off the kids, with few worries. They were considered an extension of the village, where you knew everybody and everybody knew you. Our parents seemed to like it that way. In Lake Placid, the ski hills where local kids flocked were places like Fawn Ridge, Scotts Cobble and Mt. Whitney. In Saranac Lake novices took to Mt. Pisgah, and fortunately, they still do. Otis Mountain was the favored hill for residents of Elizabethtown, Lewis, Westport and Moriah, while Paleface Mountain served the locals from nearby Jay, Keene, Ausable Forks and Keeseville. The communities of Cranberry Lake, Clifton and Fine had the Clifton/ Fine Lions Club Ski Center that was located behind the Twin Lakes Hotel in Star Lake. Long Lake retains its town ski center, as does Schroon Lake. Both communities continue to draw visitors from the nearby towns of Newcomb, Blue Mountain Lake and Ra-

plicant they feel is best qualified, though trainees must become qualified for a higher position within a year. Erica Fuller was hired in the personnel department while Palmer was still the director there. She later became engaged to and married Patti Doyle’s son. “When I hired her there, I hired her as a trainee,” Palmer said. “In that time, she got her GED, took a civil service test for typist, and did it in a year’s time.”

Provisional Hires Some county jobs, especially those with low minimum qualifications, consistently garner upwards of 50 applicants, Palmer said, but some positions with specific skill sets are harder to fill. In cases where less than three people have taken the Civil Service exam for a vacant competitive-class position, county officials are allowed to hire someone provisionally. “Provisionals absolutely have to meet the minimum qualifications to be appointed to the position,” said Palmer, noting that provisional hires are often necessary because the next available Civil Service exam for a position may not be given for several months. Provisional employees have to take the test when it becomes available, but can remain in the position if less than three people pass the test, even if they fail it themselves. If they fail it a second time or don’t reach the top scores, they must be removed from the position within 60 days. Department heads often have a preference to permanently hire provisional employees, Palmer said, because those people often receive six to nine months of training before a Civil Service exam is given. “Chances are, if they score in the top three, they’re going to remain in that position,” said Palmer. Some have accused county officials of changing a job title to allow provisional employees who don’t score high enough to remain in their

quette Lake. Further south, Hickory Hill still handles novices from places such as Bolton Landing, Warrensburg, Schroon Lake, Minerva and beyond. After several years of inactivity, this small center has been revived this year, much to the enjoyment of the local communities. However, the rope tows no longer have mittens frozen to them in places like the Harvey Mountain/Garnet Mountain in North River, Lyon Mountain Ski Hill near Dannemora, Maple Ridge in Old Forge, The Redford Tow in Saranac, Baldpate Ski Club in Crown Point or the Silver Bells Ski Hill in Wells. Most young skiers of my generation, in the 1970’s, cut their teeth (or at least chipped a few), while practicing stem-turns and hot dogging on such smaller hills. Once we thought we were good enough, we attempted to tackle the larger mountains of Whiteface and Gore, which beckoned us with groomed trails, steep drops and even a gondola. Located in Tupper Lake, the Big Tupper Ski Area once served as a proving ground for local kids from the surrounding communities of Piercefield, Long Lake, Cranberry Lake and beyond. However, as with most of the region’s small, community operated ski centers the chairlifts stopped running at Big Tupper over a decade ago. The lifts and groomers at Big Tupper have remained silent ever since. Until this year! Fortunately, for both the community and especially its youth, the lifts and rope tows at Big Tupper now run again! Through the concerted efforts of a community support group called ARISE, funding for the operation was raised through a combination of donations

position. Palmer denied that practice, though he did say job titles of vacant positions can be changed, even one for which several people have applied and taken a Civil Service exam. In some cases, the title can be changed to a trainee position that requires no exam or minimum qualifications. “It is a controversial issue,” said Palmer, “because people will take the test and they will score in the top three, and then they find out that the position has been reclassified.” Still, he stressed that such situations rarely occur, and giving the position a different title must always be met with the approval of the personnel director. “When I was personnel director, you better have had a valid reason for doing it,” said Palmer, noting how his successor, Monica Feeley, takes a similar approach.

Posting a list? Some on the board of supervisors have echoed a suggestion by Essex resident Sandy Lewis to disclose related county employees on a running list. Palmer said he would not be opposed to listing employees related to high-ranking county officials, but he would be worried about the impression it would give. “My concern is if you all of a sudden put out a list saying so-and-so is related to so-and-so, the assumption is going to be that there was some favoritism that got them the job,” he said. Palmer gave the example of Elizabethtown supervisor Noel Merrihew’s daughter, Chelsea, who scored highest on her Civil Service exam while applying to her position in the County Clerk’s office. “Noel never called anybody,” said Palmer. “Chelsea worked hard and got that job on her own.” Ideally, said Palmer, people worried about the hiring of relatives would simply contact the personnel office to find out the real story.

and fundraising events. A brigade of dedicated local volunteers spend many hours on the hill, shoring up the equipment, grooming and painting the complex, while an all volunteer Ski Patrol took to the slopes. Volunteers and community minded citizens became the heart and soul of Big Tupper. Now in full operation, a lift ticket at Big Tupper costs only $15 a day for adults, $9 for youth and free for children under 6 and seniors. The mountain will be in operation from Friday through Sunday for the remainder of the season, snow conditions permitting. The mission of the Big Tupper Ski Area reopening project is to provide a basic, no frills, affordable ski/snowboarding experience for individuals and families. The project at Big Tupper is a locally initiated, volunteer based, not-for-profit venture. Contact the ski center at SkiBigTupper.Org or call 518-359-3730 to check on snow conditions. In an effort to provide an added bonus, The Wild Center in Tupper Lake recently announced that beginning Friday, Jan. 29 until Sunday, March 7, people who purchase either a ticket to The Wild Center or a day pass to ski at Big Tupper will get a pass to the other venue for free. Both the ski mountain and the center have adult tickets priced at $15, and the free ticket can be redeemed for up to two weeks from when they are issued. You can buy a museum ticket one day, and hold off on the skiing until the next dump of snow or vice versa. Tickets are non-transferable. The Wild Center offers Winter Wildays both Saturdays and Sundays, with a full slate of indoor and outdoor activities and presentations. The museum website hosts an outdoor webcam that shows local snow conditions. For further information on The Wild Center, please visit or call 518-359-7800 Joe Hackett is a guide and sportsman residing in Ray Brook. Contact him at

Meaningful activities in Alzheimer’s and dementia care The work we do and the activities we choose for fun tell the world a lot about us. But people with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) lose, little by little over time, the ability to do those things that make them who they are. Activities should make the best use of a person’s remaining strengths and skills, and be based on interests and hobbies developed over a lifetime. These include activities like going for walks or gardening, which you can still enjoy together. Meaningful activities can also reduce the risk of agitation or upsetting behaviors. A person with AD and/or dementia has difficulty planning and choosing activities. In the early stages, just a reminder or a cue may be enough to get him going, and he may be able to carry on from there. To keep activities enjoyable, follow these tips: * Establish a routine that includes a balance of rest and activity. * Recognize limitations. Long trips, three-act plays or a seat in the balcony far from the restroom are going to cause trouble. * Adjust the activity to make it possible for him to participate. Don’t tell a person with AD about an activity you have planned too far in advance, because this may cause anxiety, not pleasant expectation. NOTE: Some people with AD get very upset watching violence on TV because they think it is real. Careful TV monitoring is important.
