Historic fire took place 80 years ago By Fred Herbst fred@denpubs.com TICONDEROGA — It was 80 years ago that Ticonderoga’s “proudest possession” was nearly lost. The new Ticonderoga High School was almost destroyed March 9, 1933, by a roaring fire battled for hours by Ti and Port Henry firefighters. Ti High had opened to students in March 1930 after being constructed at a cost of $500,000. It was billed as the community’s “proudest possession.” That $500,000 project equates to about $6.9 million today. The fire caused more than $200,000 in damage and forced students to attend “split” classes at the old school, which was located at the site of the present day Ti EMS building between The Portage and Champlain Avenue. Some classes were moved to churches and other buildings in the community. The $200,000 in damages equals about $3.5 million today. According to the Ticonderoga Sentinel newspaper, the fire began in a trash chute in the boiler room in the school’s basement. “A terrific draft swept the

Council 333 will honor a local resident at the K of C hall on Montcalm Street. The Irishman of the Year is selected by a Knights of Columbus committee. A corned beef dinner will be served at 6 p.m. and the Irishman of the Year, a closely-guarded secret, will be honored — or roasted — at 7 p.m. Tickets, priced at $10, will be available at the door. Tickets can also be purchased in advance by calling the Knights of Columbus at 585-6520. The event is open to the public. John Lenhart was the 2012 Irishman of the Year.

Dick Liddell was the 2011 Irishman of the Year. “It seems to get more and more difficult to keep it a secret,” Knight Ralph Corbo said of the Irishman of the Year award. “Everyone wants to know who it will be. They’ll just have to come to the dinner.” Ticonderoga’s Irishman of the Year dinner has been held for more than 20 years. It started as a Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce function and was eventually taken over by the Knights CONTINUED ON PAGE 7

Hancock House to host social; cellist to highlight March 16 event By Fred Herbst

fred@denpubs.com TICONDEROGA — A Saturday Afternoon Social will be held in Ticonderoga next weekend. The event, which will include live music, will be Saturday, March 16, at 4 p.m. at the Hancock House, home of the Ticonderoga Historical Society. “Saturday Afternoon Social is one of several events promoted by the Ticonderoga Area Cultural Arts Initiative during mArts Madness, March 2-March 17,” June Curtis, event coordinator, said. “Since this event was scheduled just after the initial advertising went to press, it is not listed on the rack cards. Please add this to your calendar now, plan to celebrate

the cultural arts with us at the historic Hancock House and enjoy the fine classical music by the Adirondack Cellist.” The social hour will feature a wine and cheese reception and Brian Donat, the Adirondack Cellist, performing music in the background. It is free of charge. “Brian Donat is a professional musician and instructor who has been entertaining audiences throughout the Adirondack region for the past several years,” Curtis said. “Whether it’s Bach, Mendelssohn or Wagner, Brian has it in his repertoire. With strings being his specialty, he also offers lessons in cello, violin, bass and viola from his home in Ticonderoga, in Glens Falls at the Glens Falls Music Academy and in Plattsburgh. “While growing up in Moorestown, N.J., Brian Donat started playing cello in the fourth grade,” she added. “Through middle and high school he studied with two members of the Philadelphia Orchestra, then went on to major in cello performance at Houghton College in western New York. In the summer of 2012, he studied with the Cleveland Institute of Music’s professor of cello at the Meadowmount School of Mu-

sic in Westport, adding his name to a long list of musicians such as Michael Rabin, Itzhak Perlman, Pinchas Zukerman, Jamie Laredo, Kyung Wha Chung, Arnold Steinhardt, Joshua Bell, James Ehnes, Lynn Harrell and Yo-Yo Ma who went on to establish international careers.” The social will be held in the lower level of the Hancock House, the home of the Ti Arts Gallery in season, and is accessible directly from the parking lot. “Also in this room will be an exhibit showcasing events promoted by Ticonderoga, the First 250 Years Committee,” said Bill Dolback, committee chairman. “Sponsored by the (Ticonderoga ) historical society and the Heritage Museum, these events commemorate not only the 250th anniversary of the settlement of Ticonderoga in 1764, but also the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 and the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. With art, history, music and wine in the offing, we’re sure to have something for everyone so please stop in” he said.

Job training classes set; NCCC to begin program April 12 By Fred Herbst

fred@denpubs.com TICONDEROGA — Area residents will have an opportunity to improve their job prospects through an employment certification course in Ticonderoga. The Ticonderoga Revitalization Alliance has announced it will join with other local businesses and agencies to offer a nationally-recognized employment training program. National Work Readiness, National Retail Federation & Customer Service Credential classes will be held in April and May. Classes will be held six consecutive Fridays, beginning April 12, 1 to 4 p.m. at the North Country Community College campus in Ticonderoga. People must attend all classes in order to take the certification test May 22 and 23 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The program will include OSHA 10 certification. That testing will be May 20 and 21 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. There is no cost to qualified participants. For more information and to register call Joyce Marinelli at OneWorkSource at 873-2341. Registration deadline is March 25. The course will include work-related reading, math, communication and computer skills; training opportunities and post-secondary education; defining skills and abilities for employment; and the creation of a professional portfolio and resume. Everyone who completes the course will be guaranteed an interview with a Ticonderoga-area employer. Area employers are also encouraged to register new or existing employees for the program. Chattie Van Wert, Ticonderoga Revitalization Alliance director, said the alliance has developed a plan to improve job readiness in the Ticonderoga area with the help of NCCC, the North Country Workforce Investment Board, Elizabethtown OneWorkSource, the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce, local businesses and other agencies. As part of the plan North Country Community College will offer expanded technical courses at its Ticonderoga campus. “This is a huge win for both workers and employers in our area and represents a major step in creating new employment opportunities to the most needy in our community,” Van Wert said. “The National Work Readiness Credential is designed to meet the demand for 21st century workers,” Van Wert said. “For employers, hiring someone with NWRC reduces recruitment costs, improves productivity, minimizes turnover and maximizes the effectiveness of on-the-job training. For

A coalition of Ticonderoga employers, educators and agencies have joined together to offer National Work Readiness, National Retail Federation & Customer Service Credential classes locally. job seekers, earning the NWRC demonstrates to employers that they have the skills to be successful in entry-level jobs and are more able to advance in the workplace. The system facilitates a common understanding among employers, workers and educators about the skills necessary to obtain entry-level work, and promotes the development of training programs that are appropriate to the needs of employers and job seekers. “The NWRC program teaches communication skills such as active listening and reading with understanding,” she added. “It teaches interpersonal skills of cooperation with others and conflict resolution, as well as decision making and problem solving. It teaches taking responsibility for learning, using information and communication technology and how to observe critically. The program will help students create a professional portfolio including a winning resume. The program follows a high school model for older youth and a community college model for adults.” The NCWIB program will also be incorporated into the Ticonderoga High School curriculum as part of a required economics course starting next year. “NWRC candidates are just better prepared to learn, engage and be successful in the workplace over the long term,” Delivery Always Available “Building Our Community One Project At A Time”

Viewpoint

Nicaraguan effort laudable Service above self I T

o better understand the severe poverty and unspeakable living conditions Nicaraguans endure every day, a couple from California decided last June to move there and live off $2 a day like 80 percent of Nicaragua does. That’s $2 per day for everything from food to drinks and clothing to health care and shelter. With the average cost of a plate of food in Nicaragua at $2.50, the couple gave up after just five days, saying they could no longer keep up their energy level on the meager amount of food that much money provided. They documented the experience on a blog at lifeoutofthebox.com. “In order for us to be as productive as we always are, we had to get more food,” the couple wrote. “It was hard to even think on the last day of the experiment and that was the final straw.” The couple later called it a “life changing experiment.” “Our perspective on life was completely altered once we experienced life in survival mode,” they wrote. Yet survival mode is precisely how Nicaraguans live every day. Hunger is rampant in the country. It is the second poorest country in the western hemisphere; only Haiti has worse poverty. Nearly 50 percent (just over 5 million people) of the population exists on just $1 a day and a third of the population still has no access to sustainable sources of drinking water. Schroon Lake’s Clare Whitney and Elizabethtown’s Brody Hooper know firsthand how citizens of Nicaragua struggle to obtain the things so many Americans take for granted. Working with the Plattsburgh-based North Country Mission of Hope, the two high school seniors have made it their objective to raise awareness and money to provide food, schooling and shelter to Nicaraguans. Clare and Brody comprise the student portion of the North Country Mission of Hope leadership board. Clare has twice been to Nicaragua and plans to go again in July. Brody was there a week ago. While there the pair helped repair facili-

ties operated by Mission of Hope, distribute food and build modest shelters for Nicaraguans. They’ve also raised thousands of dollars to provide lunch for school-aged children — which is often their only meal of the day. Since it costs money for Nicaraguan children to attend school, Clare and Brody also work tirelessly to raise cash so Nicaraguans can get an education. Currently, nearly a quarter of all Nicaraguan children will leave school by the first grade. The latest fundraiser planned by Brody and Clare will take place this Sunday, March 10 from 4:30 to 8 p.m. at the Cobble Hill Inn Restaurant in Elizabethtown. Tickets for the spaghetti dinner are $10 a person and $30 for families of four or more people. The dinner is sponsored by National Honor Society chapters at Schroon Lake and Elizabethtown-Lewis schools along with the Cobble Hill Inn, which is providing the spaghetti and garlic bread. These groups and the owners of Cobble Hill Inn should be commended for the role they are playing in this worthwhile endeavor. At the same time, we simply cannot say enough good things about these two selfless local teens and the North Country Mission of Hope which gives 97 percent of all donations directly to the Nicaraguan people. We can think of few not-for-profit organizations that operate on less overhead. Then, there is Clare and Brody. As teenagers, this dynamic duo have accomplished more to help their fellow man than many Americans will in a lifetime. Lets get behind their effort by flooding this fundraiser with people. Then, please consider taking it a step further and sponsor a Nicaraguan child. Just $140 a year — less than $12 a month — will keep a child in school and pay for necessities. As Clare and Brody know, there is no better feeling than helping a fellow human being in need. Go to ncmissionofhope.org today and sponsor a child, or make whatever charitable donation you can.

s it a phrase that just sounds good, or is it how we live our lives? For many it’s a life code, deeply rooted in who they are and what their lives are all about. For others it’s a pickup line creating an opportunity to take advantage of those who possess nothing more than hope and faith that they can trust what is being promised. According to recent Rasmussen Surveys, most Americans feel connected to a local church or religious organization. Generally, people feel that they are connected and play a positive role in some organization with 67 percent rating volunteer work more important than politics. Fifty-seven percent would rather be called a good citizen than a patriot, while 86 percent believe individuals make their own success. Americans, a full 88 percent of us, see honesty and good parenting at the top of the list when it comes to successful lives. With statistics like these, one can understand the frustration so many feel today as we watch our elected officials on all fronts continue to let down the people they’ve promised to serve. In those surveys, government and politics are near the bottom of the list. We want to believe when we cast our votes that candidates have our best interest first and foremost, but time and time again, we get left paying the price while they reap the benefits. The sequester that we’ve been told would not happen, the effects of which would be so repugnant that it would force our warring political parties to capitulate and seek a compromise, has now taken place. The president hasn’t led; instead, he has spent more money continuing to campaign against the opposition and predicting doom, gloom and suffering in days ahead. The Republican-led Congress, once in favor of cutting tax loopholes with the effect of raising taxes, has dug in their heels telling us that the sequester spending cuts aren’t really cuts to current spending. And the Senate seems to be missing in action these days. No one is leading. And leading is what they all promised to do when they came looking for our votes. Follow me. Trust me. The simple truth is, their lack of honesty and integrity has produced a mess

that they’re all running away from, failing to accept responsibility for their lack of apDan Alexander propriate Thoughts from action. Behind the Pressline Once again we are peppered with empty promises. I wonder how long we can afford to let these self-centered, egotistical politicians make decisions that will affect the future of our country. Always more concerned with their job security and their legacy, it’s nothing more than a tennis match for them and we, unfortunately, are the ball. They’ve accepted a job and once again they failed to get the job done. Governing is not about them. It’s always been about the people … a people who believe in freedom, opportunity, honesty, hard work and a commitment to future generations. We are paying a tremendous price for a bipartisan government that continues to fail to meet its responsibility. At some point, we must end this calamity. We are now forced to wait another two years before we’ll get a chance to attempt to send them a message. I don’t think we have another two years to wait for them to drive the nation further into the hole. Our forefathers, the framers of the American Constitution, recognized the threat of governmental tyranny — the use of arbitrary power by those in government over her people — but they were also concerned with the danger associated with a populace uprising. “Separation of powers” and “checks and balances” were designed to protect the country from the European kind of rule. As a nation we must put aside our political differences and demand accountability from the people who have sworn to serve. It’s time for the American people to make their will known and insist that the government do their job to serve and protect us, not themselves.

Thanks

Firefighters thankful

To the Times of Ti:

To the Times of Ti:

We would like to say thank you to everyone who helped us during and after our house fire on Edgemont Road, Moriah, on Feb. 17. A big thank you to everyone that has donated money, household items and a special thank you to all the fire departments that volunteered that day. Doris and Larry Evens Moriah

On behalf of the members of Chilson Volunteer Fire Department, I’d like to express our thanks to the Chilson and Ticonderoga communities for their generous support at our annual dinner dance on Feb. 9. In addition to being a lot of fun, the evening was a resounding fund-raising success and the proceeds will go a long way toward helping us keep our community safe over the coming year. This is especially true because the department is in the process of upgrading our radios and communications gear to comply with new federal, state and local standards, and the funds we raised at the dinner dance will help make those upgrades possible. So, in addition to thanking the 200 or so friends and neighbors who danced and dined with us that night, we also want to thank some very important people and organizations who made the evening possible. We’re grateful to our dinner dance sponsors, including local businesses Christopher Chevrolet Buick, Logistics One Transport, Schuyler Heights Fire Company, Geraw’s OK Septic Service, International Paper Company, Mountain Lake Services, Reale Construction Co., Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union, and Upstate Agency, as well as a number of very generous individuals and families, including Eagle Lake Property Owners and their members. Equally generous and equally to be thanked are the local businesses and organizations who donated prizes for our traditional mini-raffles, which not only added to the fun but also went a long way toward helping us reach our fund-raising goal. We’ve put lists of all of our sponsors and raffleprize contributors on our Facebook page and our web site, chilsonfire13.weebly.com. We hope that all our friends and neighbors will take a moment to check them out, and help us show our appreciation by patronizing these generous, community-spirited local business people. Finally, thanks to the Times of Ti for being the information voice of our community, and for helping Chilson Volunteer Fire Department – and everyone else – keep up to date on what’s happening in our community.

Boehner protects the rich To the Times of Ti: If one takes the time to listen to The Speaker of the House John Boehner, he/she would think they are hearing a broken record! Mr. Boehner in several news conferences tells the world President Obama is a “dictator!” He tells of a president who always wants his way and who bullies Congress! With his next breath Speaker Boehner complains that the president isn’t giving Congress an indication of what the president wants from Congress. In typical politician fashion Speaker Boehner is speaking out of both sides of his mouth! The weird thing is that there are some who understand him! The only thing I understand about our speaker and his followers in Congress is that they hate our president and are punishing Americans for electing him! Those in Congress will receive paychecks throughout the mess they created while Americans will be losing jobs and our economy suffers! Speaker Boehner tells Americans we have to subsidize multi billion dollar oil companies and need the Keystone pipeline regardless of any environmental impact or where the oil will go once it reaches Texas! He tells us we don’t need revenue as part of a plan that cuts expenses for education and programs like Head Start! How can Americans live with themselves if the super rich have to pay more taxes? Does the average American realize the yachting industry depends on these super rich people as does Mercedes and other high-end automakers! The banks in the Cayman Islands would be devastated if these same people had to show their wealth and pay their fair share of taxes! Speaker Boehner and his followers have become the protectors of these people while throwing those in the lower income brackets under the bus! The Founding Fathers of our Country worked together and “compromised” to put together our Constitution and Speaker Boehner tells us he rejects even the word “compromised!” If ever there were a time in our history for rebellion it is now and the ballot box is our weapon! This is a right given to us by those who compromised and gave us freedom! God bless the United States and those who fought for our freedom from tyranny as is being displayed by Speaker Boehner and his followers in Congress! Gary P. Guido Ticonderoga

Thankful To the Times of Ti: The Port Henry Fire Department would like to express our utmost thanks for all of those who supported our annual toy drive this year. With the great generosity of many area businesses, organizations and individuals we had a record year. This year we were able to make Christmas extra special for 47 needy children in our community. We would not have been able to accomplish such a task without all of your astounding generosity. For that, we are very grateful. Thank you for your continuous support. Courtney Waldron Port Henry Fire Department

Steve Hunsdon, chief Chilson Volunteer Fire Department

Nurses are willing to negotiate To the Times of Ti: The registered nurses employed by Moses Ludington Hospital, represented by the New York Nurses Association (NYSNA), have been trying to negotiate a contract renewal since August 2012. We have met with several roadblocks. The hospital’s original proposal contained language about our 401K and health insurance plan which would allow management to change them however they wanted. We indicated that we could not sign a legal contract giving management rights to make unilateral changes as preventing this is why we unionized and have the contract in the first place. When the hospital representative stated that they could not have more specific language for some time, we agreed to wait for a concrete proposal. We did not receive a concrete proposal until they presented their final offer in January of this year. Part of the reason they gave for presenting a final offer was that negotiations had continued long enough. We feel this is unfair, as we have said we were willing to work them but they were unwilling to listen to our suggestions. The nurses understand that the hospital continues to be in a precarious financial state. After our first session we indicated that we would consider a pay freeze for at least part of the contract. In the first year, this pay freeze and their proposed benefit cuts would add up to an overall decrease in compensation. In the second year of the contract, while they did offer a wage increase this would only result in salary essentially the same as last year ’s. We have indicated a willingness to consider this, if they would agree to a two-year contract, so that we could re-evaluate the hospital’s financial status at that time. They stated they are not willing to consider a two-year contract and instead want to tie wage and pension payments for the third year to the hospital making a 2 percent profit. They included language in this proposal limiting NYSNA’s ability to assess the financial situation and did not include any mechanism for the nurses to have input on the management decisions in areas like construction, purchases or health insurance. We are not seeking any big financial advantage in our contract negotiations. Over the last decade, NYSNA has worked with the hospital to bring nursing salaries into line with statewide standards for small rural hospitals, making it possible for us to attract and keep a skilled professional staff. For many years, contract negotiations followed a standard procedure. First, we would agree to extend the current contract until a new agreement could be reached. Secondly, we would ask for a raise, and the hospital would offer a lower amount, and within one or two sessions we would come to a compromise that left everyone satisfied. Now that salaries are reasonable by small hospital standards, we do not expect big raises. However, this contract negotiation has been far less friendly and casual. Hospital representatives started with refusing to extend the contract during negotiations unless we agreed with some of their proposals at the outset. Then we were presented with a long document detailing how the hospital wanted to change many standard provisions of our contract. Most of these changes were to give the hospital more control over firings and discipline, and to change

agreements that have been in place for decades. They have proposed doing away with the step program, standard at most hospitals, that pays nurses more based on years of experience. This is a standard because it encourages retention of experienced nurses. The hospital representative actually stated that they do not see a problem with being staffed by new nurses. While we agree that new nurses are the future of our profession, each of us needed an experienced mentor when we were fresh out of school to learn how to provide safe, quality nursing care. We are still willing to consider the pay freeze and some of the benefit cuts that the hospital proposed if they would agree to a two-year contract and remove all their proposed changes to the contract that we have not yet agreed to. We might even specify that the contact talks at the end of two years would be limited to pay and benefits, to avoid another long series of negotiations. To date, management has refused to consider this and continues to dismiss the suggestions of the nurses who have lived and worked in the community for decades. Carol McKeever Putnam

Doesn’t believe... To the Times of Ti: Gibson and Owens, bipartisan allies in the U.S. House should listen up, as a taxpayer I do not believe in spending what we do not have or can’t repay within 12 months. As a taxpayer I do not believe that there is not in excess of 85 billion in waste in the federal budget, and this sequester might finally force the House members to look at and correct some of the waste. As a taxpayer I do not believe that their is not in excess of 85 billion in fraud in the federal budget that could not be quickly identified and eliminated. As a taxpayer I do not believe there was any need for the 150,000 additional federal workers hired since Obama took office. Assuming their total compensation package to be around $150,000 per year that adds up to another $15 billion. As a taxpayer I do not believe it is our obligation as a nation to totally rebuild Iraq at taxpayer expense and now are doing the same in Afghanistan, what's up with that and am I safe with sticking a price tag of $30 billion on that item. As a taxpayer I question the expense of $1,000,000 per hour to conduct the war in Afghanistan which in my estimation is costing the U.S. taxpayer about $9 billion per year, when does that stop? As a taxpayer I question the free lunch for the world on the backs of the American taxpayer in the form of foreign aid, I don't even know how much that is and would be surprised if 10 percent of the house members know either? As a taxpayer I question the continued financial support for the United Nations when they appear not to give a damn about the U.S.A. As a taxpayer I question the continued practice of government seminars taking place in resort hotels requiring transportation meals and hotel rooms. I further question the need to send the likes of Eric Holder, the one held in contempt of Congress, around the country in a private jet at the taxpayers expense. As a taxpayer I question the need to provide automatic wage increases for federal employees while as a nation the unemployment is still a high levels and people that have found employment have taken those jobs a reduced wages and benefits. As a taxpayer I don’t believe you need another 50 examples of potential savings, and as a taxpayer I don’t feel bad about the sequester. As a taxpayer I don’t think we as a nation should wait even one more minute to start the correction, and yes it will hurt but not as much as it will tomorrow! Gibson and Owens, wake up, smack some sense into Maxine Water for starters, then start cutting. Do we need as taxpayers to send you suggestion of where to cut each and everyday? If so speak up and we will! Bert Windle Putnam

Boy Scouts invited to Fort Ti By Fred Herbst

fred@denpubs.com TICONDEROGA — Fort Ticonderoga plans to welcome Boy Scouts to the historic fortess this fall. Scout troops are being invited to camp at the fort as part of a new program to begin this fall. “Imagine your troop being able to garrison Fort Ticonderoga overnight,” said Rich Strum, Fort Ti director of education. “Give your scouts an experience they’ll never forget—a rare chance to spend the night at Fort Ticonderoga.” A limited number of slots are available in September and October for scouts interested in spending the night in the barracks of the fort. Scouts will arrive in mid-afternoon and will be thrust into the life of a solider at Ticonderoga in 1775. They’ll participate in the “Planting the Tree of Liberty” program and then have some time to explore the fort and museum before closing time. “Once the visitors are gone and

the fort is secured for the night, scouts will establish their overnight camp, gather firewood, and learn how to start a fire with flint and steel,” said Stuart Lilie, fort director of interpretation. “They will assist with the preparation of the evening meal while learning about 18th-century cooking. After cleanup, fort staff will lead scouts on an evening hike over this historic landscape before they settle in for the night. “In the morning, scouts again help with starting the fire and fixing breakfast before packing up,” Lilie said. “Once the site opens for visitors, scouts can explore the fort, museum and King’s Garden on their own before departing.” Scouts will have the option of setting up their own tents on the fort grounds or, if numbering 16 or fewer scouts and adults, spending the night in the Soldiers’ Barracks. A flat fee includes admission and special program fees as well as the evening and morning meals prepared over a camp fire. For additional information visit the Fort Ticonderoga website at www.fort-ticonderoga.org.

The Way of the Cross will be performed by St. Mary's School junior high students on Wednesday, March 27, at 7:30 p.m. at St. Mary’s Church in Ticonderoga. It is a dramatic, live presentation of the Stations of the Cross which is offered each year in preparation for Holy Week and Easter. All are welcome to come.

Ticonderoga from page 1 flames up the chute like wildfire, and smoke and flames jetting from the wooden cupola atop the building were noticed by a passerby, who turned in the first alarm,” according to the Sentinel. The fire damaged nearly the entire building. “The fire consumed the cupola which crashed to the roof of the building,” the Sentinel reported. “The roof ignited immediately and the flames spread to the third floor, which was occupied by the cafeteria, laboratory, study hall, domestic science departments and classrooms. Two high decorative brick walls, extending from the roof, crashed to the already over-laden floors below, carrying the flames to the corridors and rooms on that level.” Lost in the fire was the school auditorium, which had become a focal point of community events. “The beautiful auditorium, the costliest and most beautiful feature of the building, is a mass of ruins,” the Sentinel read. Not all the news was bad. Firefighters were able to save the school’s musical instruments, valued at $1,000, and the school gymnasium was only slightly damaged. While the fire devastated the community, it also became a rallying point. “The school system of Ticonderoga was dealt a staggering blow last Thursday morning when the magnificent new high school building in Fourth Street (now Calkins Place) was swept by flames at a loss of nearly $200,000,” the Ticonderoga Sentinel wrote in an editorial after the fire. “Undaunted, however, Ticonderoga will build anew...Ticonderoga has suffered a tremendous blow, but its residents and school authorities have not lost the greatest of all human attributes — courage.” Work to repair the high school began almost immediately. The goal was to have the school open for classes in September. That didn’t happen. Some students were able to return to the building in January and the high school was completely re-opened March 4, 1934 — five days before the one year anniversary of the blaze.

Ticonderoga • Times of Ti - 9

In less than a year Ticonderoga’s “proudest possession” was fully operational. At graduation ceremonies in June 1934 students and faculty were honored for enduring the difficulties of the fire. “This year the graduates and faculty may feel that they have triumphed over severe hardships and difficult handicaps to close out the school year with such a splendidly impressive record,” the Sentinel wrote June 28, 1934. “Hampered because of curtailed class schedules due to the reconstruction of the new school, the commendable results obtained are truly remarkable.” Bill Dolback, president of the Ticonderoga Historial Society, said the Ti High fire was a major event in the community’s history. The school was constructed in the colonial revival style as a tribute to the United States centennial after a long and sometimes heated debate about the best-possible location. “We’ve always taken pride in our school system,” Dolback said. “Education has always been at the forefront throughout the history of the community.” Ticonderoga’s first school was constructed in 1792 near Fort Ticonderoga, Dolback said. John McDonald, today’s Ticonderoga Central School superintendent, said the community’s commitment to education and the high school was obvious during an expansion and renovation project a few years ago. “During our (renovation) project the architects couldn’t believe the quality put into this building,” McDonald said of the high school. “They agreed the building is so solid it hadn’t moved an inch off its original foundation. It says a lot about the community commitment to the school.” He noted the detail given to cast iron plates that hold the school auditorium seats in place. Each one is inscribed with “THS.” “Every item was important,” McDonald said. Ticonderoga High School was placed on the National Historic Registry in the 1980s. Evidence of the 1933 fire still remains, although it’s not visible. “During the construction project they (workers) pulled back some sheet rock and the bricks behind it were black,” McDonald

The new Ticonderoga High School was nearly destroyed March 9, 1933, by a roaring fire battled for hours by Ti and Port Henry firefighters. The blaze lit up the night sky for miles. Photo courtesy of the Ticonderoga Historical Society

said. The 1933 Ti High fire was such a major event, the Albany newspaper sent a reporter to town to cover it, then “rushed several hundred extras up here containing news of the disastrous school fire.” The local Ticonderoga Sentinel didn’t appreciate Albany’s sudden interest in the community, noting the “Albany rag” got the story all wrong. After pointing out a series of mistakes in the Albany report, the Sentinel concluded, “The Albany sheet, however, was correct on one detail. The fire did occur in Ticonderoga!” While the Ti High blaze was one of the most significant in community history, it was not the largest. March 31, 1875, much of Ti’s downtown was leveled by fire. Buildings at the intersection of West Exchange Street (now Montcalm Street) and Champlain Avenue fell victim to the blaze. According to Joseph Cook, a Ti community leader at the time, 28 buildings burned. “Most were older buildings, made of wood and tar,” Dolback said. “Once the fire started it spread quickly. It’s the biggest fire in Ti’s history.” Ticonderoga suffered through two other major downtown fires. March 18, 1953, the Ticonderoga Inn burned, killing five people, and June 1, 1953, the Burleigh House was destroyed.

Family days slated by Mountain Lakes Services By Keith Lobdell

keith@denpubs.com PORT HENRY — As part of National Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month, Mountain Lakes Services will host a pair of family-themed events in Essex County. Executive Director Marty Nephew said that the two events will include a family carnival at the Schroon Lake beach on Saturday, March 16, starting at 1 p.m. The other will be a Family Fun Day which will be held at Elizabethtown-Lewis Central School starting at 10 a.m.

Mountain Lakes Services is based in Port Henry. Nephew also talked about Presidents Project Week, organized by NYSARC, Inc. “This initiative is a statewide effort to have people with disabilities give back to their communities by focusing on volunteering,” he said. “We at Mountain Lake Services work diligently with the people we provide services to help them become integral members of their communities and achieve all that they are capable of. Volunteering with local civic organizations is an important way we attain this.”

Nephew said that the group works with local SPCAs, food banks, churches, nursing homes and municipalities, along with the Lake Placid Marathon Meals on Wheels and local fire departments. “We even have groups that volunteer to shred or clean for local organizations,” Nephew said. Nephew also said he is concerned with the future economic climate faced by his organization via the state. The agency is facing a statewide 6 percent cut, which would hit Mountain Lakes Services to the tune of around $2.3 million.

“The contributions that people with disabilities make in their communities are substantial,” Nephew said. “These contributions are heavily influenced by the supports and services provided by Mountain Lake Services. This would directly impact the services that are provided to people with disabilities and the 75,000 direct support workers employed throughout the state. I ask that you show your support for our agency by speaking with our representatives about the impact people with disabilities have had on your community.” For more information call 546-3381.

Essex County may decide their SAFE Act stance March 18 By Keith Lobdell

keith@denpubs.com ELIZABETHTOWN — Essex County may have their official stance on the controversial SAFE Act in resolution form for a special meeting that would be held March 18. Chesterfield Supervisors Gerald Morrow, who is chairing a special committee tasked with looking at the new gun control law and drafting a resolution that would be the voice of the county on the matter, said that his committee would meet next week to come up with a resolution. “(North Hudson Supervisor Ronald) Moore and I have worked on a resolution,” Morrow said. “Mine is to repeal the SAFE Act, not to amend it. It makes innocent gun owners criminal. If we get this done, then the chairman (Randy Douglas of Jay) has told me that on March 18, there will be a special board meeting and we will address this. We are not going to sit on this; we are going to get it resolved.” In addition to Morrow and Moore, the committee consists of Elizabethtown Supervisor Margaret Bartley, County Attorney Daniel Manning and County Manager Daniel Palmer and would meet at 11:30 a.m. Monday, March 11. “I am adamantly opposed to any bill that infringes on my rights,” Moore said. “Our representatives should be given the opportunity to debate this subject. This leads to things like this other bill on the Senate that would require a $1 million insurance policy in order to own a gun.” Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafava, who presided at the meeting in the absence of Douglas and board vice chair Bill Ferebee, said he looked forward to a vote. “The committee will draft a resolution and we will have a vote on that resolution on the 18th one way or the other,” he said. Scozzafava added that a planned presentation by Essex County Sheriff Richard Cutting was not going to happen that day. “We have a number of supervisors out and we also have the committee that has been appointed,” he said. Scozzafava then opened the floor up for comments. “I have several guns, including what would be classified as an assault weapon,” Win Belanger of Willsboro said. “The law is need-

ed, but not the present law and not in the way that it was pushed through. It could lead to a lot of litigation that is not required. Taking three bullets out of my gun, oh well. But to take away my two pistols because there is not a clip that is made to meet the rules, when I have a permit in 33 other states where the same pistol is legal?” “I do not think a lot of people understand what this law is going to do,” Bruno Mazzotte of Moriah said. “Every time a grandfather or father wants to go shooting with his kid, he has to go through a background check to buy ammunition every time.” Cutting said that he was recently asked about the number of violent crimes committed by registered gun owners with the weapons that were registered. “A reporter asked me the other day, do I ever remember a crime being committed by a lawful pistol permit owner or a gun owner with a weapon that they had lawfully registered, and I can honestly not think of one,” Cutting said. “This law unfortunately focuses on the law-abiding group.” Newcomb Supervisor George Canon said that he was in favor of a resolution against the SAFE Act, but did not think repeal was the right way to go. “The probability of this being repealed by the state is pretty close to nil,” Canon said. “I think that the best chance is to get the NRA and citizens to look at the constitutionality of it and see if it can be overturned that way.” According to the New York SAFE Act Resolution Facebook Page, 33 counties have approved resolutions that are against all of part of the SAFE Act, including Hamilton, Washington and Warren counties. Currently, 17 counties have proposed to pass legislation, including Essex, Clinton and Franklin counties.

Girls Scouts maintain hectic pace Area troops stay active

TICONDEROGA — The Southern Essex County Girl Scouts have been staying busy this year with a number of community events, as well as, individual troop activities. The girls in Troop 3193 recently earned first aid and CPR patches with the help of Mary Cunningham. The girls in troop 4040 have completed the Comic Artist badge with the help from cartoonist Stan Burdick from Ticonderoga. They also just completed New Cuisines and are going to be holding a pot luck with their troop and their families to try some foods from other countries. They are currently working on the badge Trees. The girls in troop 3068 just completed their Silver Award which is the highest award a girl scout can earn at the Cadette/Senior Level of girl scouting. The girls focused on improving the nature trail in the back of the Ticonderoga Elementary/Middle School. As part of their project they improved the appearance of the trail by repainting the signs with the help of Chris and Janet Mallon. They also created resource binders for the younger grades based off of the informational signs placed throughout the trail. Emily Powers, MacKenzie Strum and Susan Ward earned the Silver Award. The inaugural Daisy/Brownie Fun Days were recently held at the Fraternal F.O.E. Adirondack Araies Ticonderoga #4410 and at the Ticonderoga EMS Building. “All Daisy/Brownie Troops were asked to do an activity which was going along with the Journey they were currently working on and to invite their friends to attend so they can see what girl scouting is all about,” explained Debbie Barber, Southern Essex County Girl Scouts community chair-

woman. “Either a pizza lunch or dinner was provided to all those who attended. A special thank you goes to the Fraternal F.O.E. Adirondack Araies Ticonderoga #4410 and to the Ticonderoga EMS for allowing us to host this event at their facilities.” In early January the girls began knocking on doors taking orders for girl scout cookies. This year donated cookies will be going to troops overseas. People who have not been contacted by an scout and would like to purchase cookies can call Kari Michalak at 585 -2532 or Barber at 585-6876 after 3:30 p.m. Girls hosted their second multicultural fair Jan. 11. Approximately 12 area troops (approximately 60 girls) participated in this event. This activity allowed the girls in individual troops to choose and research a particular country of interest to them. After their research was completed they were asked to put together a display which they showcased. Their displays included not only posters but ethnic attire, shared food their country was known for and music. Open to the public, it was attended by approximately 100 community members. “We would like to thank the Knights of Columbus in Port Henry for allowing us to host this event at their facility,” Barber said. “Without their generosity we would not have been able to host this event. We would also like to thank the community members who stopped by to see what the girls have learned.” About 20 area girls went snow tubing at the Tubby Tubes Feb. 21. This activity provided the girls an opportunity to get outside and to have some winter fun. “A good time was had by all who attended this event,” Barber said. “A special thank you goes to Melody Borho who organized this event and to Tubby Tubes for being our host.”

Girl Scout Troop 3193 recently earned first aid and CPR patches with the help of Mary Cunningham. Troop 3465 hosted their own father/daughter dance Feb. 16 at the Fraternal F.O.E. Adirondack Araies Ticonderoga #4410. Troop Leader Christa Cole thanked them for their donation of the use of their facilities. The month of March promises to be a busy month for area girls. First they begin by delivering all those cookies which were ordered back in January. They will also continue to sell cookies as most troops have a surplus of cookies which need to be sold. Also, a number of troops be hosting booth sales at area businesses. CONTINUED ON PAGE 15

About 30 area girls from Schroon Lake, Ticonderoga and Moriah went bowling at Adirondack Lanes March 3. Those who attended this event had a good time getting together with other troops within our community. Scout leaders thanked Adirondack Lanes for hosting the event. Scouts will participate in a Powder Puff Derby Saturday, March 23, at 10 a.m. at the Ticonderoga Fire Department. This is similar to the Pinewood Derby the Cub Scouts do every year. In April a number of girls will attend the Build A Bear Workshop in Albany to create their own Girl Scout Teddy Bear. Daisies through Junior Girl Scouts will participate in the annual Mother/Daughter Tea Saturday, April 20, at the Knights of Columbus hall. The theme this year is “Travel Around the World.” Girls will be collecting bottles throughout the month of March fro their scholarship fund. The money will be awarded to a graduating registered Girl Scout. Anyone who has any bottles they would like to donate can leave them at the redemption center and tell them they are for the Southern Essex County Girl Scouts or they can call Ann Arno (Moriah) at 942-7091, Frances Malaney (Ticonderoga) at 585-3339; Christa Cole (Ticonderoga) at 585-7791 or Debbie Barber (Ticonderoga) at 585-6876. The Sentinel Grille is donating its bottles to the project. Bridging/Awards Ceremony and Ice Cream Socials are being planned in Minerva, Ticonderoga and Moriah. These ice cream socials provide an opportunity for any girl who is not currently a scout to attend to see what girl scouting is all about. At this time she will be able to register for the 2013-14 girl scout year. “Without adults playing many pivotal roles, Girl Scouting couldn’t happen,” Barber said. “Whether you’re a leader/adviser, parent or guardian, volunteer, or mentor, you awaken in girls their promise to develop their full potential. Research shows that the influence one caring adult has on a child will last a lifetime. “Helping girls grow strong is a fulfilling and inspiring challenge and being involved means something different to everyone, she added. “You can tailor your participation so that it fits right into your life.” Interested adults can contact Barber at 585-6876 or Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York at 518-563-1560. “I would like to take this opportunity to thank all my leaders — Melody Borho, Frances Malaney, Penny Comes, Christa Cole, Heather Whitford, Sharon Dorsett, Penny Mosley, Rebecca Ro-

Without their support our girls would not be provided the opportunities they have been given,” Barber said. “The area girl scouts would like to take this opportunity to thank the community for their continued support,” she continued. “Without your support, we would not be able to make these events happen for our girls in Ticonderoga, Schroon Lake, Crown Point, Putnam, Hague and Moriah.” Girl Scouts are now taking registrations for the 2011-2012 school year. If anyone is interested in registering their daughter they can call Barber at 585-6876 , Corinna Woods, membership organizer, at 585-7895 or Frances Malaney, membership organizer, at 585-3339 or Ann Arno, membership organizer, for Moriah at 942-7091. “We would like to thank the following businesses/organizations for their contributions to our unit Girl Scouts — Patricia Shultz for her monetary donation, the Methodist Church for allowing us to use their fellowship hall for some of our events, and meetings, Stewarts for their monetary donation, Adirondack Lanes for allowing us to host our bowling event Mary Cunningham for providing training for First Aid and CPR to the unit leaders and some of our troops; Ticonderoga EMS for allowing us to host some meetings and events, Ticonderoga and Port Henry K of C of allowing us to host events; Ticonderoga VFW for allowing to host our cookie kick off event; Moriah Central School for allowing us host troop meetings and events there; Fraternal F.O.E. Adirondack Araies Ticonderoga 4410 for allowing to host events; Ticonderoga Central School District for allowing us to hold our leaders meetings and troop meetings at their facility; Sentinel Grille for donating their bottles to our scholarship fund and to the Times of Ti for their support,” Barber said. “If we have forgotten anyone, please accept our apologies and thanks.”

Schroon, ELCS students to assist Nicaraguan counterparts By Fred Herbst

fred@denpubs.com SCHROON LAKE — Students from Schroon Lake and Elizabethtown-Lewis schools are joining forces to assist children in Nicaragua. A spaghetti dinner will be served Sunday, March 10, 4:30 to 8 p.m. at the Cobble Hill Inn in Elizabethtown to raise money to educate students in the third-world nation. Tickets are $10 a person and $30 for families of four or more people. The dinner is sponsored by the National Honor Society chapters at Schroon Lake and Elizabethtown-Lewis schools along with the Cobble Hill Inn, which is providing the spaghetti and garlic bread. The local students hope to raise $1,500 to be used to pay tuition costs for Nicaraguan students who have lost their sponsors. In Nicaragua students must pay to attend school. Those without the money must find sponsors. “It is important to remember that this fundraiser is to cov-

er the costs of these students’ tuitions just for this year,” explained Clare Whitney, a Schroon Lake student heading up the dinner with ELCS student Brody Hooper. “They will still need long-term sponsors to keep their education going. That’s why this event is also about education awareness. There is no overstating how crucial an education is to the future of Nicaragua. “In addition to raising sufficient funds to support these students, we also aim to spark the flame of hope in people here to find it in their hearts, and in their wallets, to take on the sponsorship of a student and change a life forever,” she said. “For $140 a year, someone can sponsor a child to go to school and pay for their uniforms, shoes, books, and other school materials.” Whitney and Hooper are both members of the North Country Mission of Hope leadership board. Whitney has twice been to Nicaragua and plans to go again in July. Hooper was there a week ago. “The students are from various schools,” Whitney said. “Some are from the Chiquilistagua public school and some are from the local private schools — colegio niño jesus de praga and nejapa. “Brody Hooper and I comprise the student portion of the board of leadership for the NCMOH and we are working together to put this event on,” she said. “Both of our NHS groups will be setting up, serving and cleaning up for the event as well as providing salad and baked goods.” This is Whitney’s second major fund raising effort on behalf of Nicaraguan students. Last year she raised $10,000 by hosting a 5-kilometer run, a hike and a dinner. That money was used to buy lunches for more than 130 children for one school year. Hunger is rampant in Nicaragua. It is the second poorest country in the western hemisphere; only Haiti has worse poverty. School lunch is important, Whitney said, because it is often the only food a child receives each day. “If they don’t get lunch at 2009 Kia school during the day, odds Sedona $0 are they won’t get fed every DOWN night when they go home,” she said. “It is so important that we sponsor these chil#120520, 6 Cyl., Auto, Power All, dren to assure education and Cruise, AC, CD, Tilt, 102,842 mi.

do what we can to assure better nutrition as well. “I currently sponsor an 11 year-old girl attending Chiquilistagua Publico named Izayanna,” she said. “The lunch we can buy for the students will vary from meals such as tortilla bread and cheese, or soup, or oatmeal-like drinks. These meals are very simple and they emphasize fruit and protein, which is what most children lack most in their diets.” A spiritually-based humanitarian organization, the North Country Mission of Hope is committed to fostering hope and empowering relationships with the people of Nicaragua through sustainable programs in education, health care, community and ecological development. It began in 1998 by responding to the devastating effects of Hurricane Mitch on the impoverished villages of Nicaragua. “While we were in Nicaragua, we did a lot,” Whitney said. “To start, there was maintenance to be done at the Mission of Hope compound in Chiquilistagua, Nicaragua, such as painting, cleaning, etc. But what is at the heart of the mission is what occurs off compound. One main project the MOH conducts is ‘rice and beans’ in which groups of missioners go out into the poorest barrios and distribute bags of rice and beans to houses. It isn’t much, but it is incredible how long people can make that amount of food last. “Another is ‘home shelter,’ where groups of missioners team up with Nicaraguans to build shelters,” she continued. “To be honest, the shelter we provide is much smaller than my own bedroom, but when a family receives one, the gratefulness in their eyes becomes understandable when you see what an improvement it is from their prior situation. These shelters are built from corrugated metal and wood.” Mission of Hope also supports a disability center, a children’s hospital, medical clinics and a program to enroll students in schools. “My favorite part was playing with the children from the neighborhood every day in the evening,” Whitney said. “I have made so many bonds with so many people from the mission — children, adults and, of course, fellow missioners.” The Mission of Hope is successful, Whitney said, because of the support it receives from Adirondack residents. “Mission of Hope is so incredibly thankful for the people in the North Country for all of their support,” Whitney said. “We realize that, especially in today’s economy, there are people who suffer from hunger even here in the United States. However, we are fortunate enough to have numerous programs and organizations that are dedicated to help our people, like the Salvation Army and food pantries. “In Nicaragua, they rely on people like you and me to help mitigate their hunger, their pain,” she added. “It’s difficult sometimes to remind ourselves that we don’t really need the new iPhone, or that a bad grade on a math test isn’t the end of the world. But when we remember what is really important, we can open our hearts with generosity and make an unimaginable difference in the lives of people all around the world.”

Sentinel Jay Hebert ranked tops in nation Wins state, Federation titles By Fred Herbst

fred@denpubs.com TICONDEROGA — Jay Hebert is breathing rarified air these days. The Ticonderoga High School junior won a pair of state titles at the New York State Public High School Athletic Association indoor track championships March 2. Then things got crazy. Following the meet the 55-meter hurdle specialist learned he had become the top athlete in his event in the nation. “It’s amazing,” Hebert said. “I never could have expected that this year. To be the top-ranked hurdler in the country is unbelievable.” Hebert was clocked in 7.31 seconds in the championship race at Cornell University, setting a new personal and Section VII record. In fact, he broke his own section and school records in both the preliminary and semifinal rounds. “I have been running well,” Hebert said. “I felt good going into the meet, but I knew it would be hard. The competition, especially in the final, is always tough.” It was. Cory Keefe of Oswego was second in 7.40 seconds — 9/100ths of a second behind. The win gave Hebert both the NYSPHAA and Federation championships. The NYSPHAA includes all the state’s public schools while the Federation includes both

public and private schools. Following the meet, MileSplit.com, a website that tracks high school and collegiate track and cross country athletes nationally, announced Hebert had become the topranked hurdler in the United States. “How low can Hebert go?,” MileSplit asked. “Ticonderoga junior Jay Hebert is the new national leader in the 55m hurdles. Running 7.31, he broke his own personal best by over .12 seconds. He is our athlete of the meet!” Hebert will be back in action March 16 at the high school national championship meet in New York City’s Armory. His new national ranking makes him a marked man. “There’s a lot of pressure,” Hebert admitted. “Before I was hoping to make it to the podium (medal), but now everyone will expect me to win. That’s what I’ll try and do.” The 55-meter hurdles is normally decided by hundredths of a second. A bad start, clipping a hurdle, mistiming the finishing lean can all be fatal to a hurdler, which makes Hebert’s feats all the more amazing. Since finishing third at the state indoor meet last winter, Hebert has been undefeated. He won the outdoor state and Federation 110-meter hurdle crowns last fall. This winter he won the 55-meter hurdles at the New Balance Games in New York City Jan. 26. Hebert topped a national-class field, winning in 7.43 seconds. That time broke Hebert’s own Section VII and Ti High record for the event. It just missed the track record ot 7.42.

Jay Hebert, third from the right, receives his championship medals at the New York State Public High School Athletic Association indoor track championships March 2. Following the meet the 55-meter hurdle specialist learned he had become the top athlete in his event in the nation. Hebert won the Dartmouth Relays Jan. 12. Hebert ran 7.54 seconds in a preliminary round to break the record he already held, then ran 7.51 in the finals to win. Hebert is the first Section VII athlete to ever win an event at the Dartmouth Relays, according his coach, Walter Thorne. He decided not to play football last fall to concentrate on the hurdles and it has paid off this winter. “I think not playing football really helped me,” Hebert said. “I’ve been training five

days a week on the hurdles for more than a year. That training is really paying off.” Ticonderoga and Coach Walt Thorne had several other athletes at the state championship meet at Cornell. Jarryn Granger was 28th in the triple jump, Javeed Nazir finished 30th in the 1,000-meter run, Shawn Silliman was 32nd in the 600 run and Justyn Granger was 39th in the 55-meter sprint during the boys meet. Sentinel Naomi Forkas finished 1st in the 1,500-meter in the girls meet.

Ti kegler ends stellar career Jordan McKee leaves with school, section records By Fred Herbst

fred@denpubs.com TICONDEROGA — Jordan McKee joined the Ticonderoga High School bowling team to strengthen her arm for softball season. She ended her career as the top kegler in school history. “She’s definitely the best I’ve ever coached,” said Donna Fleury, Ti High bowling coach the past 14 years. “When you look at what she’s accomplished, I don’t think you can argue that she’s the best. She’s taken it very seriously and it paid off.” McKee, a senior, concluded her career at the New York State Public High School Athletic Association bowling championships in Syracuse March 2. It marked McKee’s fifth trip to the state championships — the most in school history. She earned a trip as an eighth grader when the Sentinels won the Section VII girls team title. She’s also gone the past four years by qualifying as an individual. Caitlin Patnode, Fleury’s daughter, reached the state championship four times for Ti. “States can be pretty difficult,” McKee said. “There’s the travel and getting used to the different lanes. It’s competi-

tive, but it’s fun, too. I just try to have a good time.” McKee’s enjoyed success at the state level. Her 237 was the high game at the 2011 state championship. She led Section VII bowlers at the state meet this year, rolling a high game of 229 and a six-game series of 1,065. That’s not surprising. McKee has been Section VII’s top girl bowler the past two seasons. Her 186 average topped the region in 2011-12 as did her 190 average this season. At the Section VII championship meet this season McKee rolled a six game series total of 1,210, 29 pins ahead of the second place girl. She’s also a section record holder. Last season McKee rolled a record 750 series as Ti defeated Beekmantown in Champlain Valley Athletic Conference action. McKee’s 750 broke the old CVAC mark of 719, set by AuSable Valley's Savannah Ronfeldt. McKee fired a 279-234-237-750 for the Sentinels. Her 279 game tied the CVAC record for high game, which she now shares with Ronfeldt, Saranac’s Hillary Miner, Plattsburgh’s Stacy Steele and Beekmantown’s Ali Munson. It’s been quite a career for a would-be basketball player. McKee played basketball as a seventh garde student before joining the bowling team. “I’ve always bowled; I think I started when I was 5 years old,” McKee said. “I wanted to play basketball, but my coach suggested I bowl to get stronger for softball season.” The move to bowling paid off. Not only has McKee made

Ticonderoga falls in championship game

her mark as a kegler, she is one of the area’s top pitchers for the championship Ti High softball team. “I think of myself as a bowler now,” she said. “I’ll always be a bowler. I really enjoy it. I definitely want to keep bowling.” Apparently so. McKee has taken a job working at Ticonderoga’s Adirondack Lanes to be close to game. In the fall she plans to attend Maria College in Albany to study nursing.

AAU basketball try-outs slated

By Keith Lobdell

March 17 and 19

keith@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — The AuSable Valley Patriots stuck to their game plan, playing aggressive defense and running the floor on offense to win the Section VII Class C boys basketball tournament title March 2. The Patriots jumped out to an 18-4 lead against the Ticonderoga Sentinels and put any thoughts of a comeback out of mind with a 15-2 third quarter as they scored a 53-24 win. “We try to play hard and win games,” AuSable’s Shane Douglas, who scored a game-high 15 points to go with seven rebounds, six assists and two steals, said. “This has been our focus all year and we worked hard in practice to get here.” For the Sentinels, Michael Graney led a balanced yet sparse scoring attack with five points to go with three rebounds. Mark Donohue had four points and two rebounds, while Karney Manning had three points, four rebounds, one assist and one steal; Ty Denno three points, two rebounds, one assist and one steal; Keegan Tierney two points, one rebound and one steal; Matt Cook two points, two rebounds and one steal; Zeshan Afzal two points, four rebounds, one assist and one steal; Jordan Fuller two points and two rebounds; and Riley Chapman adding one point to go with two steals and one rebound.. While not scoring, Anthony DuShane grabbed 10 rebounds to go with one assist and one steal. Garrison Hughes also grabbed a rebound.

Jordan McKee, left, is considered Ticonderoga High School’s best-ever bowler by her coach, Donna Fleury.

Moriah captures section crown with win over Schroon By Keith Lobdell

keith@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — The Schroon Lake Wildcats were not going to do down without a fight. Trailing by 14 early in the fourth quarter, the ‘Cats scratched their way back to within three points of the Moriah Vikings in the Section VII Class D boys basketball championship game March 2, but were unable to convert on key free throws and turnovers as the Vikings scored a 49-44 win. “They (Schroon) don’t ever want to make it easy,” Vikings Coach Brian Cross said. “Our screen-roll worked well today, but it was our defense that won the game for us. We were able to stop Jesse (Shaughnessy) from getting to the basket and keep an eye on their shooters. When they came back, it was because we started to lose those shooters.” The ability to penetrate the opposition defense was a key to the game, as Moriah was able to score points in the paint on drives by Viking guards while the Wildcats struggled. “We wanted to stop their penetration and we came in here wanting to run screen-roll,” Moriah’s Adam Jaquish (nine points, five rebounds, one steal and three blocks) said. “We wanted to stop Jesse on their penetration plays and keep to their shooters,” Viking Derek Brassard (seven points, three rebounds, two assists and two steals) said. “They were being aggressive just like we were,” Moriah’s Jessup Calkins (six points, five rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks) said. “We had to come out playing hard and strong on both sides of the ball.” “We looked to set the plays up, but early in the game we realized that we could penetrate and that worked for us the rest of the game,” Viking Tyler Pratt, who led the team with 10 points to go with two rebounds, two assists and three steals, said. “We took what they gave us and found our opportunities as they came in the game,” Cross said. “We have scouted each other a lot so you have a good feeling that your set plays are not going to work when you know each other that well.” “They did a pretty good job penetrating and a lot of the shots they took in traffic found their way into the basket,” Wildcats Coach Lee Silvernail said. The Wildcats also missed their chance to take advantage of the offensive glass, grabbing 20 offensive boards compared to just two for the Vikings, both by Calkins. Overall, the Wildcats held a 36-18 rebounding advantage. “We had the rebounds, but it seemed like we were unable to get good looks from those,” Silvernail said.

The Vikings scored the first four points of the fourth quarter, stretching their lead to 39-25. The Wildcats were not going to go quietly, however. “We called a timeout and I told them that they had four minutes to leave everything out on the court,” Silvernail said. “They had just enough to pull up close to them, but in the end we just could not get over the hump.” Jeff Armstrong started the comeback attempt with a three pointer, which was followed by a pair of triples by Tanner Stone. At 46-35, the Wildcats got a free throw from Shaughnessy, who then assisted Joe Maisonville on a layup. Armstrong then hit a three-pointer and was fouled on the shot, converting on a rare four-point play to cut the lead to 46-42 with 38.4 seconds remaining. Mike Mero converted on a free throw with 37.3 seconds remaining for a 47-42 edge, and Shaughnessy then scored a basket to pull the Wildcats within three points with under 20 seconds remaining. On the inbounds, Shaughnessy stole the ball and went up for a basket, missing but getting fouled with 11.3 seconds left on the clock. He was unable to convert on either free throw, and Brassard pulled in the rebound for the Vikings, getting fouled in the process. Brassard then stepped to the line and connected on both free throws, sealing the upset of the third-ranked team in the state for Class D. Mero added eight points, two assists and one rebound for the Vikings, while Ryan Shpur had seven points and a pair of rebounds. Wesley Belzer added two points and a block. For the Wildcats, Shaughnessy scored a game-high 15 points to go with 11 rebounds, four assists and five steals in his final varsity game. Armstrong also had a big game, scoring 12 points to go with 15 rebounds and a steal. Stone added eight points, three rebounds, three steals and a block; while Maisonville had four points and a rebound; Alex Shaughnessy scored three points to go with two rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block; and Bobby Rose added three points, three assists, two rebounds, two steals and one blocked shot. The win put Moriah into the state Class D tournament. The Vikings traveled to Potsdam March 5 to take on the Section X/Class D champion Madrid-Waddington.

The Wildcats used a 15-3 opening quarter and a 20-5 third to pull away from the Eagles, as Jesse Shaughnessy scored 20 points to go with five rebounds, three assists and four steals while Tanner Stone added 16 points, seven rebounds and two steals. Stone connected on four three-pointers in the game, with three coming in a third quarter push that saw the Wildcats go from a 24-12 lead to 38-14. “We know that we have good shooters and when we get hot we can hit a lot of baskets in a row,” Stone said. “We wanted to come out strong so we could get back to the field house.” “When we get hot like that, I don’t think that there is anyone that can stop that,” Shaughnessy said. “Tanner and I have a good connection and we have been playing together since we were young.” “I think that there were times when they caught the ball in the first half but were not in good shooting position, so we talked about getting in a better position in the second half,” Coach Lee Silvernail said. “We wanted to take them out early and not let them hang around and we spent a lot of time working on defense, both team and individual.” Alex Shaughnessy scored nine points to go with five rebounds and four assists, while Joe Maisonville added four points and two rebounds and Eric Paradis added two points. While not scoring, Jeff Armstrong pulled down 10 rebounds and had a pair of assists,

with Caleb Maisonville adding three rebounds and an assist, while Justin Lough had an assist.

Moriah wins The Moriah Vikings used a 29-7 first half to punch their ticket to the Section VII Class D finals with a 48-33 win over the ElizabethtownLewis Lions Feb. 28 at AuSable Valley High School. The Vikings used tough defense and an advantage on the boards to pull out to a large first half lead, as Adam Jaquish had 14 rebounds and seven blocked shots while Derek Brassard had 12 rebounds and Jessup Calkins had three steals. “We were looking to push the tempo and crash the boards,” Jaquish, who finished with a team-high 15 points, said. “We needed to show up on the boards if we wanted to win, and it feels good to make it to the finals,” Brassard (five points) said. “We hit the boards good in the first half and played solid defense,” Coach Brian Cross said. “We gave them only one shot and then got the rebound in that half. We knew that it was not going to be easy and they played hard until the end of the game.” Calkins scored 10 points for the Vikings, while Brian Mauran scored four, Tyler Pratt scored three, Ryan Shpur scored two and Dakota Marcotte added two. Jaquish led the team with three assists.

Lady Vikings fall to ELCS in section final By Keith Lobdell

keith@denpubs.com PLATTSBURGH — The Elizabethtown-Lewis girls basketball team made their third time to the Plattsburgh State field house a charm, earning the Section VII Class D championship with a 49-34 win over the Moriah Vikings March 2. “We were nervous at the beginning, but once we realized what we could do we picked it up a notch,” ELCS guard Kylee Cassavaugh said. “It feels good to finally win this because it was the third time and this is a charm.” The Lions gradually pushed their lead throughout the game, starting with an 8-6 lead after the opening quarter which ballooned to an eight-point, 23-15, edge at halftime. After adding to that lead by one point, 35-26, after three, ELCS used an 8-0 run at the start of the final quarter to pull away and claim the sectional crown, their second of the season after also winning the Class D soccer title in November. For Moriah, Lauren Pelkey scored 12 points to go with seven rebounds, three assists and two steals. Taylor Sprague added seven points, two rebounds and a block; Madison Stahl had four points, three rebounds, one steal and one block; Sarah Slattery had four points, five rebounds and a steal; Lauren Cross two points, three rebounds and a steal; Halie Snyder two points and two rebounds; Val Wykes two points, three rebounds and an assist; and Caitlin Pelkey one point, one assist and one block. “They stretched us out well defensively,” Moriah Coach Steve Pelkey said. “The girls have been playing better throughout the year, but we had a lot of nervous kids out there for this game. I am very proud of the way that they played all year long and we felt that anything we got after the sectional semifinals would be icing on the cake. We will cherish this run and learn from it.”

Moriah wins semifinal In a rare matchup between two defending Section VII champions, the former Class C champ used a strong press to wear down the defending D champ in the Section VII Class D girls basketball tournament semifinals Feb. 26. The Moriah Lady Vikings outscored the Indian Lake/Long

Lake Lady Orange 13-3 in the final eight minutes of the game to score a 34-30 win. “I thought that they did a great job,” Vikings Coach Steve Pelkey said after the game. “I knew that they were not deep and we tried to wear them out as the game went on. Defensively, we picked up the intensity in the second half.” “We starting switching on their screens defensively and stepped up the intensity,” Viking Madison Stahl said. “We started running a lot more in the second half.” “We knew that we needed to move more on offense and we were able to make our cuts and get to the ball,” Moriah’s Lauren Pelkey said. “We had never seen the 1-2-2 defense that they played against us and it took us a while to adjust.” The Vikings entered the third quarter trailing 27-21, trailing by as many as nine points late in the third quarter before Pelkey hit a three-pointer late in the stanza. Lauren Cross opened the fourth quarter with a three-pointer to cut the Orange lead to three. Taylor Sprague then connected on a pair of free throws to trim the lead to one at 27-26 with 4:49 remaining. On their next offensive possession, Sarah Slattery grabbed an offensive rebound and drew a foul on the ensuing shot, connecting for two as well as the free throw to give the Vikings a 29-27 lead. The lead hovered around two points until Cross was fouled with 12.8 seconds left and a 32-30 lead. Cross stepped to the line and made both ends of a 1-and-1, giving the Vikings the four point advantage they would win by. “It was completely overwhelming to hit those,” Cross said. “I practice them every day and I was not hitting much tonight, so there was a lot of pressure. Once I sank the first one, it was so much easier on the second.” With a very balanced scoring attack, Slattery scored eight points to go with six rebounds, while Stahl had six points, five rebounds and three blocks, with Pelkey adding six points, six rebounds and three steals. Cross finished with her five fourth quarter points along with three rebounds, while Sprague had four points and three boards. Caitlin Pelkey scored three points to go with three rebounds, three assists and two steals. Haley Snyder scored two points and dished out three assists. Sammi Ida added a rebound. Reaching the championship game was a thrill for the Moriah

players. “I’m really excited,” Stahl said. “This has been my goal since the beginning of the season. I think having been there last year and winning the Class C title will give us some confidence that will hopefully pay off.” “It is nice to be going back with championship experience,” Coach Pelkey said. “I am not sure what the rest of the league expected from us this year, but I know that I had high expectations.”

Habitat heroes! W Turning back time

A

ccording to most calendars, the spring season officially arrives during the month of March. However, in the Adirondack region, where the average weather is always a bit extreme, winter tends to linger a little longer than it does in the rest of the state. Although the loitering winter weather often suppresses the timely transition to spring, it also provides a fortunate opportunity for local winter sports enthusiasts, as well as others who travel north to enjoy the ice and snow. Last weekend, I enjoyed an opportunity to join forces with supporters of both entities, as locals and visitors alike joined together at Otis Mountain Ski Center in Elizabethtown to celebrate the 11th Annual Adirondack Backcountry Ski Festival. Hosted by The Mountaineer in Keene Valley, proceeds from the annual festival are used to benefit the NYS Ski Education Foundation’s Nordic racing programs and the Adirondack Ski Touring Council, custodians of the popular Jackrabbit Trail, which connects communities from Keene all the way to Paul Smiths. The weekend program offered an assortment of ski clinics, guided backcountry ski adventures, a demo day and a wonderful dinner at the Keene Valley Lodge. The event culminated with an assortment of slide and video presentations that were enjoyed by a lively group of active outdoor enthusiasts. The guided tours in the High Peaks offered extreme skiing adventures on some of the mountain slides created by Hurricane Irene, while others sent skiers down the winding wooded trails of Mt. Marcy, Wrights Peak and Johns Brook Valley. However, I chose to participate in a more exciting adventure, which brought me back to the more modest ski slopes of my youth at a Demo Day event hosted at Otis Mountain in Elizabethtown. Formerly a public ski center, the small hill is now in private ownership. When I arrived in the late morning, there was already a sizable crowd assembled around the large display of demo gear. It was a cool, yet sunny day, and I couldn’t wait to get on the hill. So, I strapped on an old pair of wooden skis and headed straight to the rope tow, operated by the property owner, Jeff Allot. Like many locals, Jeff and his siblings grew up skiing at Otis. It’s fortunate he’s been able to revive the old haunts, to restore some sore ski legs and let some of us be kids again, if only for a day. I stepped out of the line, and bent over to grip the old, wet rope. I squeezed it and with a jerk, I began a short journey back in time. The ride only took about a minute, but when I reached the top of the hill, the old rope had transported me back to a different era. It was exciting, and I could feel myself giggling. I looked around nervously, trying to keep it contained inside, and hoping nobody would notice. I first stopped to savor the view across the Pleasant Valley of the Boquet, with the cliffs of Cobble Hill looming in the distance. I knew that many things had changed, and yet it all looked so familiar. For the moment, I was a kid again, back in a time of complete freedom, when my only problems were soggy mittens, a runny nose or the encroaching darkness that threatened an end to another day of fun. Nothing mattered, it was time to play. After savoring the view, I continued climbing further up the slope to the top of the adjacent ‘big hill’, which had been serviced by a T-bar in my youth. As I skied along the old connector trail, which was well

grown over, it reminded me of many other things that had ‘grown over’ in the four decades since I had last been on the hill. Fortunately, like those memories, my enthusiasm for such youthful adventures remains intact. As I made my way through the silent woods, I was able to recapture some of the laughter and freedom of those days. They certainly were simpler times, when parents would drop off their children in the early morning, and return to pick them up at dark, without a care or concern. It was a time when freestyle skiing was known as ‘hot-dogging,’ and a 360 was called a ‘helicopter.’ Moguls weren’t yet named, they were just bumps, and skis didn’t have brakes. Skis were attached to the boots by leather safety straps. You could break a leg if you fell, but you’d never loose a ski. We’d often tape old, Life magazines to our legs to stuff into the back of our low top, leather boots, so we could sit back while hot-dogging down the hill. Tim Drummond, a local kid, was one of the best skiers on the hill and it was always a thrill to see what spin or flip or stunt he would come up with next. He was a very talented athlete, and it’s fortunate there were no snowboards around at the time, ‘cause some of us probably wouldn’t be around today. I traversed to the top of the big hill and climbed higher. By the time I finally reached the bullwheel at the top of the old, T-Bar hill, I was a youngster again, and that old, daredevil spirit was back. After a few quick photos, I skied off and dropped into a tuck heading down a small chute through the woods. Quickly, I gained speed and my skis were chattering on the crusted snow as I flew down the hill. I was moving pretty fast when I decided to cut off on a short, steep connector trail which would take me back to the small hill. Soon, saplings began to encroach on the route and I had to bail. There wasn’t much of a choice, so I headed for a small opening off the trail. I hit hard and ended up crumpled like a lump at the base of a big cedar. It knocked the wind out of me. A quick inventory revealed my skis remained intact and nothing was broken. However, there were certainly a few parts and pieces that were going to be sore. My ego was a bit bruised but not my enthusiasm! As I grappled with a cedar to get back on my feet, it occurred to me; I grew up here in these woods, just like that tree. I’ve never been accused of being a ‘tree-hugger,’ but as I wrestled with that tree to get back on my feet, I hung on just a bit longer, and I laughed a bit harder. Maybe, a few years from now, I’ll come back to visit with the tree again, to discover which of us has grown older. Joe Hackett is a guide and sportsman residing in Ray Brook.

Hunter ed class scheduled A rusty bullwheel from an old T-Bar at Otis Mountain is slowly being lost to an ever encroaching forest.

SCHROON LAKE — There will be a hunter education class at the Schroon Lake Fish & Game Club from 5-9 p.m. March 22 and 8 a.m.-2 p.m. on March 23. To sign up call Bruce Bruce at 585-9194 or Tom Barber at 585-7859. Make sure and bring a lunch on Saturday.

hat’s so cool about March is that we have finally broken over the hump of winter and entered a time zone where there is enough light to finally get something “real” done after getting home from work. It’s a great time to get some exercise and chop some firewood and manage some habitat. With a chainsaw, you can By Rich Redman fell, trim and clear trees to create early successional habitat that many wildlife species, like Whitetail Deer and Ruffed Grouse prefer. Driving the back roads of Essex County I spot wild apple trees growing everywhere, but many are surrounded by pines, aspen and other fast growing trees which will eventually shade them out, causing a slow death by solar starvation! You can change all that with management. Most hunters and photographers know that setting up near a wild apple tree increases the chance of getting a shot. Being in a woodlot that has openings with wild apples is heavenly during bow season. To keep those trees supplying the high energy pommels, orchard maintenance is required. Apple trees need lots of sunlight, like all fruits. Cutting the competing trees from around the apples allows more sunlight for photosynthesis and apple production, plus it decreases the competition for water and nutrients. Quality feed comes from quality plants. To start, take a compass and note where south is and start clearing any trees in that direction. You will need to eliminate the trees that shade the apple. The taller the competing trees, the greater the south, east and west facing semi-circle out from the apple needs to be. You don’t need to cut as much from the north side because the influence from the sun is less. You do need to cut away any competition though. Use the fallen trees to control access points. (In spring, plant wild grape vines by the stumps and tops. The vines will grow over the length of the downed trees and into the dead tops. Grouse will be able to feed on the fruit of the vine, when the snows are deep). After you have cleared out the competition, prune out any dead wood in the apple trees and thin out the larger branches that crisscross over each other within the tree crown. Be careful not to overcut, it will cause the tree to send out new suckers in the spring. You want to keep the branches with the spurs that produce the fruit. Once spring comes and the ground is thawed out, you can apply a little fertilizer around the tree, working out from the base as far as the drip line of the outside branches. If you already have a soil test, follow the recommendations, if not a small amount of 10-10-10 should get you started. When I worked in the orchards, we applied a full one pound coffee can to large trees. Small trees will need much less. Don’t over fertilize, it could kill the tree. A small bean can full, may be all you need. Spread the mix out evenly around the trees. With the renewed apple tree habitat, trees should start producing high quality feed for wildlife, and that’s habitat management benefiting ruffed grouse, whitetails and other early successional species. Who knows, maybe you will get that shot of a lifetime! Before starting your “Habitat Hero” adventures, for safety reasons, take the Game of Logging classes or the S212 wildfire chainsaw course so you get some chainsaw skills to help you with felling trees and to train you in the proper safety methods of handling a saw and safety gear needed. Chainsaws are effective but nasty tools that take no prisoners. They mean business and can do some serious damage if not handled properly. As an ex EMT and current fire department member, I know what can happen, so be safe out there!

Conversations

NY residents gather for rally Speaking of getting a shot, I attended the New York State Rifle and Pistol Associations rally in Albany protesting the SAFE Act. Over 5,000 freedom fighters were in attendance. NRA President David Keene was the main speaker. He praised the crowd for their spirit and cautioned them that they must keep vigilant if they want to preserve their constitutionally given 2nd Amendment rights and most importantly, to be able to hand them down to the next generation. The crowd waved dozens upon dozens of flags flying the motto of the day: DON’T TREAD ON ME!

TT-3/2-3/30/13-5TC40811 ----------------------------ANNUAL DRINKING WATER QUALITY REPORT FOR 2012 Moriah Water District #1 and #2 38 Park Place, Suite 1 Port Henry, New York 12974 (Public Water Supply ID#1500287) Introduction To comply with State and Federal regulations, we will be annually issuing a report describing the quality of your drinking water. The purpose of this report is to raise your understanding of drinking water and awareness of the need to protect our drinking water sources. This report provides an overview of last year s water quality. Included are details about where your water comes from, what it contains, and how it compares to State standards. If you have any questions about this report or concerning your drinking water, please contact Mr. Dwayne Maye, Water Superintendent, at (518) 942-3340. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled town board meetings. The meetings are held the second Tuesday of every month at 6:00 p.m. in the Town Hall. Where does our water come from? In general, the sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activities. Contaminants that may be present in source water include microbial contaminants; inorganic contaminants; pesticides and herbicides; organic chemical contaminants; and radioactive contaminants. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the State and the EPA prescribe regulations, which limit the amount of certain

March 9, 2013

www.timesofti.com contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The State Health Department s and the FDA s regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water which must provide the same protection for public health. The source of water for the Moriah WD is Bartlett Pond. Raw water receives filtration treatment at the Bartlett Pond filtration plant. The Bartlett Pond water filtration plant is located to the south of Bartlett Pond approximately onequarter mile west of the pond spillway. The filtered water receives hypochlorination disinfection treatment prior to entering two interconnected storage tanks at the plant. Water flows by gravity from storage at the plant to the Mineville area (Water District #1).. Water is pumped from storage at the filter plant to a concrete storage reservoir at Barton Hill for the Whiterbee area (Water District #2). Water flows by gravity from the Barton Hill storage tank to Water District #2. Facts and Figures Our water system serves approximately 3,100 individuals through 1,030 service connections. The total volume of water produced in 2012 was 163 million gallons. On average, 445,000 gallons of water is treated and distributed to users of the water system each day. In 2012, the average annual charge for town water service was approximately $270.00 per user. Are there contaminants in our drinking water? As the State regulations require, we routinely test your drinking water for numerous contaminants. These contaminants include total coliform, inorganic contaminants, nitrate, nitrite, gross alpha, lead and copper, volatile organic contaminants, and synthetic organic compounds. The table presented below depicts which compounds were detected in your drinking water. The State allows us to test for some contaminants less than once per year because the concentrations of these contaminants do not change frequently. Some of our data, though representative, are more than one year old. It should be noted that all drinking water, including bottled drinking water, may be reasonably expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the EPA s Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800426-4791) or the New York State Health Department at (518) 891-1800.

Notes: 1 A violation occurs when a total coliform sample and/or an E.

Coli sample are positive and a repeat total coliform sample and/or an E. Coli sample is positive. 2 - During 2011, 10 samples were collected and analyzed for lead and copper. The 90th percentile is equal to or greater than 90% of the lead or copper values detected at your water system. In this case, 10 samples were collected at your water system and the 90th percentile value was the second highest value for both lead and copper. The action level for lead was exceeded at one of the sites tested. The action level for copper was not exceeded at any of the sites tested. The range of lead levels measured was ND 21.0 ug/L. The range of copper levels measured was ND 0.59 mg/L. 3 Water containing more than 20 mg/L of sodium should not be used for drinking by people on very restricted sodium diets. Water containing more than 270 mg/L of sodium should not be used for drinking by people on moderately restricted sodium diets. 4 The level represents the running annual average of all samples collected during 2012. In this case, a total of 4 samples were collected during 2012. 5 - Turbidity is a measure of the clarity of the water. We test it because it is a good indicator of the effectiveness of our filtration system. State regulations require that turbidity must always be below 1.0 NTU. The regulations also require that 95% of the turbidity samples collected have measurements below 0.3 NTU. Our single highest filtered water turbidity measurement for the year occurred at 8:00am on March 3, 2012 (1.811 NTU). The turbidity of the filtered water entering the distribution system from our storage tanks at the filter plant never exceeded 0.3 NTU during 2012. 6 - Principal Organic Contaminant classification as defined in 10 NYCRR Part 5. 7 These levels represent the range of disinfection by-product samples collected throughout the year Definitions: M a x i m u m Contaminant Level (MCL): The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible. M a x i m u m Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG): The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety. Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements which a water system must follow. Non-Detects (ND): Laboratory analysis indicates that the constituent is not present. Milligrams per liter (mg/l): Corresponds to one part of liquid in one million parts of liquid (parts per million ppm). Micrograms per liter (ug/l): Corresponds to one part of liquid in one billion parts of liquid (parts per billion ppb). Picocuries per liter (pCi/L): A measure of the radioactivity in water. What does this information mean? As you can see by the table, the system had no violations. We have learned through our testing that some contaminants have been detected; however, these contaminants were detected below the level allowed by the State. Is our water system meeting other rules that govern operations? During 2012, our system was in general compliance with applicable State

drinking water operating, monitoring and reporting requirements. SOURCE WATER ASSESSMENT SUMMARY The NYS Dept. of Health completed a source water assessment for this system based on available information. Based on the analysis of available information, this drinking water source does not have an elevated susceptibility to contamination. There are no regulated facilities within this watershed and the corresponding land cover does not pose any substantial risks to the source water quality. The health department will use this information to direct future source water protection activities. These may include water quality monitoring, resource management, planning, and education programs. A copy of the assessment, including a map of the assessment area, can be obtained by contacting us as noted below. Do I Need to Take S p e c i a l Precautions? Some people may be more vulnerable to disease causing microorganisms or pathogens in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice from their health care provider about their drinking water. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium, Giardia and other microbial pathogens are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-4264791). If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. The Moriah Water District is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www.epa.gov/sa fewater/lead. Why Save Water and How to Avoid Wasting It? Although our system has an adequate amount of water to meet present and future demands, there are a number of reasons why it is important to conserve water: * Saving water saves energy and some of the costs associated with both of these necessities of life; * Saving water reduces the cost of energy required to pump water and the need to construct costly new wells, pumping systems and water towers; and * Saving water lessens the strain on the water system during a dry spell or drought, helping to avoid severe water use restrictions so that essential fire fighting needs are met. You can play a role in conserving water by becoming conscious of the amount of water

your household is using, and by looking for ways to use less whenever you can. It is not hard to conserve water. Conservation tips include: * Automatic dishwashers use 15 gallons for every cycle, regardless of how many dishes are loaded. So get a run for your money and load it to capacity. * Turn off the tap when brushing your teeth. Check every faucet in your home for leaks. Just a slow drip can waste 15 to 20 gallons a day. Fix it up and you can save almost 6,000 gallons per year. * Check your toilets for leaks by putting a few drops of food coloring in the tank, watch for a few minutes to see if the color shows up in the bowl. It is not uncommon to lose up to 100 gallons a day from one of these otherwise invisible toilet leaks. Fix it and you save more than 30,000 gallons a year. * Use your water meter to detect hidden leaks. Simply turn off all taps and water using appliances, then check the meter after 15 minutes. If it moved, you have a leak. Closing Thank you for allowing us to continue to provide your family with quality drinking water this year. In order to maintain a safe and dependable water supply we sometimes need to make improvements that will benefit all of our customers. The costs of these improvements may be reflected in the rate structure. Rate adjustments may be necessary in order to address these improvements. We ask that all our customers help us protect our water sources, which are the heart of our community. Please call our office if you have questions.
