PORT HENRY — Madge Genier didn’t realize how busy she was until she was named Volunteer of the Year by the Retired & Senior Program of Essex County. Genier, a Mineville resident, logged 1,806.5 hours in 2010 knitting for the Holidays for Sharing program, which provides warm items for residents of nursing homes and Christmas gifts for ACAP-Head Start children. “I didn’t know I worked that hard,” she joked. “I’ve always crocheted; it’s something I enjoy doing, so I might as well do

something people can benefit from.” RSVP has over 30 knitters and crochet artists producing warm garments for children. In 2010 they logged 6,253 hours in the Holiday for Sharing program, knitting baby hats, blankets and sweaters for needy children and senior citizens. “Madge is dedicated to the program,” said Barb Brassard, RSVP director. “Not only does she knit, she organizes all the yarn donated to the group and takes care of the program. She’s a real asset to our community.” Genier and other RSVP volunteers will be honored at an appreciation luncheon See MORIAH, page 9

Madge Genier has been named the 2010 Volunteer of the Year by the Retired & Senior Program of Essex County. Genier and other RSVP volunteers will be honored at an appreciation luncheon April 27 at the Daisy Morton Center in Moriah.

Firefighters plan open house Event scheduled for April 9 and 10 TICONDEROGA — Ticonderoga Fire Company #1 will participate in Recruit NY, a statewide effort to recruit and retain volunteers. Saturday, April 9, and Sunday, April 10, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Ticonderoga Fire Company #1, located at 60 Montcalm Street, will join in an initiative with volunteer fire departments all across the state at their respective firehouses for a unified recruitment drive, as part of National Volunteer Week 2011. Not only will Recruit NY be an opportunity to highlight the duties and rewards that come with being a volunteer firefighter, it will also raise public awareness about the need for volunteers. The hope is that a collaborative effort among volunteer fire departments statewide will turn the declining number of volunteer firefighters around. “Come on out and join us for this unique recruitment day at our firehouse,” said Jeff Burns, Ticonderoga fire chief. “This is a great opportunity for our neighbors to observe the exciting tasks of a firefighter. Our current members love what they do; they are everyday heroes who help neighbors in need. We hope our recruitment day will inspire other area residents to join our fire service family.” Throughout the day, the Ticonderoga Fire Company will conduct tours of the station and firefighter apparatus, allow visitors to try on turnout gear and provide activities and stations throughout the firehouse for visitors to participate in. The fire department will discuss the requirements to be a volunteer, as well as conduct demonstrations, answer questions, and let visitors know how to get involved in the fire department. Ticonderoga Fire Company # 1 responded to 250 calls for assistance last year alone. The Firemen’s Association of the State of New York worked in conjunction with the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs, Association of Fire Districts of New York State, Volunteer Fire Police Association of the State of New York, and County Fire Coordinators Association of the State of New York to make this program possible.

Independence Day benefit slated Dinner-dance April 9 in Ti

By Fred Herbst TICONDEROGA — It takes money to retain the unofficial title of “Best Fourth in North.” With that in mind the committee planning the annual Ticonderoga Fourth of July celebration will host a fundraising dinner Saturday, April 9, at the Knights of Columbus. The dinner-dance will follow the 13th annual Best Fourth in the North Alumni Basketball Tournament held earlier that day. Cocktail hour will be 6 to 7 p.m. and an Italian dinner will be served 7 to 8 p.m. Raffle and door prizes will be awarded at 8 p.m. followed by dancing to music provided by Decibel Entertainment. Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 at the door. Tickets can be purchased at Century 21, the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce or from any committee member. For more information call 585-2233. This year ’s theme is focused on looking back on past Ticonderoga Independence Days. People are asked to bring a favorite July 4th photo to receive a door prize ticket. The dinner-dance will follow the Best Fourth in the North Alumni Basketball Tournament. “For more than a decade the basketball alumni have gathered at the Ticonderoga High School gym to help support the Best Fourth in the North basketball tournament,” said Bob Dedrick, who chairs the event. “This year is no exception. Alumni who graduated in the early (19)80s to the most recent grads all converge at the gym to renew friendships, relive memories, get a chance to pit their skills against common opponents and help raise funds for the Fourth of July celebration.” Players are asked to come to the school at 11 a.m. The tournament, featuring former Ticonderoga High School cagers, will begin at noon in the school gym with a three-point shooting contest at 11:45 a.m. The day will feature four games, the final two the consolation and championship games. Teams are determined by the year of graduation to allow graduates to compete with players who were on the roster while in high school. “Each game is closely contested, where youth usually competes against experience,” Dedrick said. The annual event serves as an unofficial reunion and a fundraiser for the community’s annual Fourth of July celebration. “This event continues to be is an annual fund raiser for the Fourth of July,” Dedrick said. “As in the past an admission fee is collected and it is hoped that the community will help support this organization and salute the former players and the referees who so generously devote their time.” The July 4th celebration committee will refreshments. All proceeds will go toward Ticonderoga’s 2011 Fourth of July celebration. For more information contact Dedrick at 585-7408.

‘Nuisance’ law not yet ready By Fred Herbst TICONDEROGA — Ticonderoga’s proposed “nuisance” property law will have to wait at least another month. The proposed legislation wasn’t ready for a scheduled public hearing in March. Town board members then discussed holding a hearing prior to their April 14 meeting, but that won’t happen either. Tonya Thompson, town clerk, said the proposed law still isn’t complete. Even if the measure is completed before the next town board meeting, state law requires that the public have 10 days to review the document before a hearing. “It looks like the public hearing will actually be in May,” Thompson said. The proposed “nuisance” property law is an attempt by the Ti town board to spruce up dilapidated buildings, clean up garbage, eliminate junk and make the community more attractive. The town board hopes residents will voluntarily clean up properties, but are preparing to deal with “nuisance” properties through law enforcement. The proposed law claims the town board has identified properties that “substantially and seriously interfere with the interest of the public in the quality of life and total community environment, commerce in the town, property values and public health, safety, peace, comfort, conveniences and general wel-

fare.” The proposed law allows for enforcement and penalties. The penalties include up to a $1,000 fine, suspension of a certificate of occupancy, closure of a building and “any action necessary to abate the nuisance, including but not limited to cleaning, painting, repairing or demolishing and building, structure or place” at owner expense. “It gives the town the ability to take action,” explained Matt Fuller, town attorney. “It’s not something you’ll use often, but it’ll be there when you need it.” The proposed law, which would replace a series of other laws the town board feels are inadequate, has the support of the town public safety committee, the town police, the town codes enforcement office and the Ticonderoga Main Street Partnership, Supervisor Deb Malaney said. Trustee Steve Whitford said enforcing the law, if adopted, will be an emphasis this summer. To make that point, he asked the town board to expand the town codes enforcement office during its February meeting. The office now has a full-time and part-time employee responsible for inspecting properties. Whitford asked that the part-time position be made full-time. Malaney said she understands the importance of code enforcement, but opposed making the second codes position fulltime, citing budget constraints. After discussion, the board agreed to a compromise. The parttime codes position will increase from 21 hours a week to 30.

Opinion Times of Ti Editorial

Area should benefit from power line


he year was 1998, and our managing editor was floating placidly on Schroon Lake with his family, while the fireworks display they watched reflected brightly off the water like a mirror. He decided to moor the boat near the Word of Life Island and was shocked by what he found underwater. After the fireworks, he reached for the anchor rope that held the boat in place, but it would not budge from the lake’s floor. “I wasn’t sure if I had caught a log, or what, so I started to put my back into it and it slowly, painstakingly made its way up,” he recalled. What the family saw rise to the surface attached to the anchor was no log. Instead, it was a six-inch thick green cable with the words “Danger: High Voltage” printed on the side. It was the electricity source feeding the island — which had been long ago buried on the lake bottom by the power company. Are recreational users of Lake Champlain in for a similar fate some day soon? A proposal is now in the approval phase that would lay two five-inch power lines underwater along the length of Lake Champlain, the Champlain Canal and Hudson River. The concept is to feed New York City with “clean, renewable power” from Montreal to offset a growing demand there and help lower some of the highest electricity rates in the country. But at what cost to the North Country? The company charged with building the line — Canadian-based Transmission Developers Inc. (TDI) — says the environmental impacts will be minimal. They say the line will be monitored by a special fiber-optic coating that will automatically switch the power off should the line become untangled or penetrated. They say the electro-magnetic field surrounding the 1,000-Megawatt line (that is 100 times more powerful than the one that feeds Word of Life Island) will have no detriment to fish or plant life. Let’s face it. This power line is unprecedented. It would be the largest undertaking of its kind in the region and it deserves tremendous scrutiny

before utility companies are allowed to reap the financial rewards from its existence in our waterways. And, as Mike Winslow of the Lake Champlain Committee pointed out, the people of this region should see more of a benefit than watching a cable reel boat float by from Ballard Park in Westport. An economic analysis filed on behalf of the promoter to the New York Public Service Commission in July 2010 estimates that the projected line would save New York customers $8.1 billion on their electricity bills over the first 10 years of operations, between 2015 and 2024. If that’s truly the case, than utility companies surely stand to gain many times that amount. Certainly they will have the ability to afford cleanup efforts in the areas where they will benefit from using the region’s natural resources for their personal gain, both before and after they are here. While it is nice that our neighbors to the south will benefit from this project, the reality is it will do nothing for the local population. TDI says it will provide annual financial assistance for environmental projects in the Lake Champlain Basin. But that assistance needs to be appreciable and it needs to be long-lasting. Moreover, part of the approval should be a requirement that money be put away to monitor, repair or even remove the line should it be deemed in any way an environmental hazard. Residents would have been better served if officials had as much foresight with past environmental disasters such as the PCB pollution in the Hudson River, instead of listening to politicians whose jobs are too intrinsically linked to deep-pocketed business interests. Let’s think very hard before we leave another environmental anchor in our lake for future generations to deal with. We’ve had enough of that.

Following the open house at 5 p.m. we will serve a fried turkey dinner, complete with country smashed potatoes, stuffing, green beans, rolls, butter and dessert. Tickets will be $12 for adults and $8 for children ages 5-12. Children younger than 5 will be free.

Letters to the Editor Councilman responds To the Times of Ti: My February letters to the Times of Ti referenced inaccurate statements reported regarding $45,000 of debt in the Crown Point Water District. Supervisor (Bethany) Kosmider ’s recent letters contain accusations concerning the sewer district, a completely different entity. She falsely states “Mr. Walters admitted that the sewer department borrowed $45,251 from the town in 2009.” I made a motion at the March 10, 2011, board meeting to “repay general fund $45,251 from the sewer fund with interest.” I also stated that this was to repay the loan or inter-fund transfer made May 26, 2010. This motion passed and is recorded in the minutes of the meeting. The current board, supervisor included, voted unanimously at a special meeting held May 26, 2010, to make this loan. The minutes of this meeting are on page 548 of the minutes book kept on file at the town clerk’s office. As I stated at the March 10 meeting, this loan should have been paid back by the end of 2010. Personnel issues, that are currently in litigation, caused the fall sewer bills to be sent out two months late pushing the receipt of those revenues into 2011. The timing of

billings and the due date of debt payments have always created cash flow problems. When the money became available I then proposed to repay the loan. This “illegal act” was committed by the current supervisor and board. She suggests that we “should have borrowed the money from the bank.”.This would have incurred even more costs for the district such as higher interest rates and attorney’s fees. If the charges against us are that we saved the district money and the sentence is a rebuke from the State Comptroller ’s Office then I plead guilty. I don’t try to deny that I was involved. Proponents of “open government” would put all meeting minutes on the town’s website and provide residents with accurate and unbiased information. Everybody could then see how absurd these allegations are. Instead they get personal opinions written in newsletters that are posted at taxpayers’ expense. Tom Walters Town Councilman Crown Point

The nuclear age To the Times of Ti: The nuclear crisis in Japan reminds us of the urgent need to develop renewable energy sources. In Vermont, though, controversy rages over which types of renewable energy development are appropriate. But this debate is actually moot. It doesn’t matter whether one believes that wind turbines work or not, or are acceptable on ridge lines. It is a fact of physics that ridge line wind in the Eastern US has very little potential to replace coal and nuclear. According to Department of Energy figures, if all of the onshore commercially viable wind resource of the Eastern United States were developed, only about 17 gigawatts of conventional generation could be offset at best, and probably much less in practice. Compare this with the fact that US demand for electricity is equivalent to 450 gigawatts of continually operating generation, and that electricity accounts for only about one third of our energy consumption. Only a massive expansion of solar generation has the potential at present to significantly reduce conventional generation in the Eastern U.S. Wind power from offshore or from the Midwest might also contribute in principle, but it is not certain that either resource will be environmentally or economically acceptable. We would be much better off focusing on ramping up solar now, and accelerating its cost reduction in the process, rather than pouring hundreds of millions of dollars into an approach that will mainly just devastate our mountaintop ecosystems, our eco-tourism based economy, and divide our closely knit communities into warring camps.

don't legislators have more important things to do than play musical office suites? I also overheard and saw what I assumed were professional lobbyists, various union groups, school children and everyday citizens who looked like they were bussed in to perhaps represent those who might be affected by pending issues. Some wore names tags, group representation stickers or themed identical T-shirts. Others carried signs, and still others were passing out position fliers. Overall, there was a complete mix of the state’s melting pot. As we waited to see some Assembly and Senate members, you could hear through the walls both happy and certainly more than a few unhappy constituents who — in heated language — made their concerns known. Some of the officials we spoke with were engaging, some entertaining and others not very engaged at all. I observed many different emotions during my day’s stay in Albany. As I drove home and reflected on what I had heard and observed, it dawned on me that nobody expressed the

emotion of fear. I came away with the feeling that no one there seemed overly distraught about the many financial problems facing the state. It was more a sense of business as usual, problems to face, positions to defend, turf to protect, but I never saw the face of fear. Was the reason because we have too many safety nets in our society? Or is it because folks, as they look at the massive state budget, figure if they argue, scream and threaten loud enough, they’ll get what they want? You can't blame them; those tactics have worked in the past. I did sense that the winds of change are blowing in Albany. We can only hope our elected officials have the backbone and courage (because they sure don't have the money) to stand up to those who want to maintain the status quo. If my business were in debt comparable to the state of New York, I know many things would be handled differently than they are today. Unfortunately, I did not sense that the movers and shakers at the state capitol are in a “crisis management mode” yet. At least many seem to be aware that a day of reckoning is on the horizon.

What adults? To the Times of It: Could I answer your question in last Friday’s Times of Ti? You wonder where the adults have gone, They haven’t gone anywhere because they never developed in the first place. Think of the child in the market cart, reaching for an attractive package and screaming, “Cause I want it!” Well, those children are older but not grown up. They still want it, and they want it now. My sister and I are our 80s and remember with pleasure our childhood; it was wartime, the early 1940s. I went with my sister to purchase a war bond. I was the beneficiary! We had booklets for our stamps, a dime at a time to buy a war bond. We lauded my mother when she made the new ‘chiffon cake’ which didn’t need butter. We used bacon grease to “butter” our beans and honey to sweeten rhubarb pie. Our second car was a gas-eater so Pop put it up on blocks and used it for back up as gas supply. We had an “A Gas Card,” no unnecessary trips. Cooking decent meals was a challenge but we all had “victory gardens” and grew what we could. I remember our asparagus; it was sensational! Mom volunteered on the “ration board” and we listened to the news on the radio every night. It was a time of togetherness. The blackmarketeers were the real criminals. If it made us all better people I wonder if we didn’t spoil our own children as a result. Mary R. Beal Westport

Fort hosts History Day event TICONDEROGA — Middle and high school students from the North Country won top prizes at North Country History Day at Ticonderoga’s Deborah Clarke Mars Education Center March 12. Winners will advance to compete at New York State History Day in Cooperstown on April 29. “It’s really gratifying to see students in junior high and high school excited about history,” said Rich Strum, Fort Ticonderoga’s director of education and regional coordinator for New York State History Day. “These students have invested a great deal of time in historical research and pulling together compelling projects about debate and diplomacy in history. It’s great to see their creativity unleashed in this way.” “Debate and Diplomacy: Successes, Failures, Consequences” is the 2011 theme for National History Day. Champlain National Bank helped support the North Country History Day Regional Contest, a regional program coordinated by Fort Ticonderoga. Winners in the North Country Region include: — Jonathan Brassard, Cole Gaddor, Kyle Gifaldi, Megan Maloy, and Dylan

Scozzafava from Moriah Central School, who took first place in the senior group website category with their website “The Great Debate.” — Nathan Wilhelm from Edison Home School, who took first place in the junior individual website category with his website “The Panama Canal: A Land Divided / A World United.” — Emily Powers and Mackenzie Strum from Ticonderoga Middle School, who took first place in the junior group exhibit category with their exhibit “Who Really Discovered DNA?” — Makayla Holt and Amanda Hurlburt from St. Mary’s School, Ticonderoga, who took second place in the junior group exhibit category with their exhibit “The Salem Witchcraft Trials.” A report released earlier this month by the American Association for State and Local History found that student participation in the National History Day program “had a marked impact on their knowledge of history.” The report found that the program instilled an interest in both historical events and issues, taught students how to dig deeper into historical issues, and motivated them to ask questions and analyze historical evidence. National History Day is the nation’s leading pro-

Beth Hill, executive director of Fort Ticonderoga, congratulates Emily Powers and Mackenzie Strum from Ticonderoga Middle School during North Country History Day activities. Powers and Strum took first place in the junior group exhibit category with their exhibit “Who Really Discovered DNA?” gram for history education in the schools. Students research history topics of their choice related to an annual theme and create exhibits, documentaries, performances, research papers, and website designs. They may enter in competition at the regional, state, and national level. Fort Ticonderoga hosts teacher workshops about History Day each fall in the North Country and Strum is available to meet with teachers at their schools to introduce the program. Teachers and students from Clinton, Essex, Franklin, and Warren coun-

ties interested in participating in North Country History Day during the 2011-12 school year should contact Strum at or at 585-6370. Fort Ticonderoga offers programs, tours, demonstrations and exhibits each day from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. May 20- Oct. 20.

Port Henry church returns to its roots Lake Champlain Bible Fellowship renovating building

By Fred Herbst PORT HENRY — A century old church has rediscovered its calling. The former Port Henry Methodist Church, built in 1872, is again a house of worship after nearly two decades as a restaurant. The church, appropriately located at 6 Church St., is the new home of the Lake Champlain Bible Fellowship. “We were looking for a place, a place in the middle of a community for our ministry,” explained Pastor Tom Smith. “We wanted a church where people could walk in, where we were a part of the community. This is perfect.” While the Lake Champlain Bible Fellowship is new to Port Henry, it’s not new. Affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention, the church started as Bible study group in Moriah 20 years ago under the direction of the Lake Placid Baptist Church. Membership grew. The church began holding services at the Mineville VFW five years ago and began looking for a permanent home. “We purchased this building last October,” Smith said. “We’re in the process of renovations, but we’re holding services.” It was also last October that Smith, who lives in jay, was installed as pastor. he’s a retired Lake Placid school teacher.

About 60-70 people are attending services each Sunday at the Port Henry church, the pastor said. A fellowship period begins at 10 a.m. with worship at 10:30 every Sunday. “We have young families, we have senior adults,” Smith said of the congregation. “We have a nice mix of Tom Smith people.” Pastor of the Lake The renovation work at Champlain Bible Fellowship the church is extensive. It started with a new roof and the removal of more than a ton of pigeon waste from the steeple. “We had quite a mess,” Smith said, “but we’re making progress.” Upstairs is a sanctuary, with all new windows. Downstairs is a fellowship hall, kitchen, Sunday School/nursery and office space. The renovation work is expected to continue several more months, In fact, a mission team from North Carolina will be coming to Port Henry to work on the church in June. But while the work goes on, church activities continue. Besides weekly services, the church has hosted a Thanksgiving dinner that attracted 100 people. The pastor hopes to open a thrift shop and food pantry. “When I look out these windows and see people walking

by I see an opportunity for ministry,” Smith said. The Lake Champlain Bible Fellowship is committed to community service, Smith said. “We’re a very service-oriented church,” he said. “We want to be involved in the community. We helped out last Labor Day (during Moriah’s annual town celebration) and we provide school supplies to students in need. We want to participate in everything in the community.” The church has even constructed a shanty for ice fishing. “We’ll take our ministry wherever the people are,” Smith smiled. “If it means catching a few smelt, that’s what we’ll do.” The pastor believes the way to salvation is through people. “If you help people and families improve their circumstances you improve a community,” he said. “We believe our church needs to be authentic and live out the example taught be Jesus. We want to take things from the Good Book to make a good life.” The Lake Champlain Bible Fellowship is now in the process of “constituting,” which means it is breaking its relationship with the Lake Placid Baptist Church to become independent. “We’ll always be connected,” Smith said of the Lake Placid relationship. “We have a great love and appreciation for what they’ve done for us.” For more information on the Lake Champlain Bible Fellowship people can call the church at 546-4200, call Smith at 524-1117 or go online at

She works regularly with the Meals and Wheels program, is a member of the Moriah Senior Arts & Crafts Club and is a regular at the Moriah Nutrition Site. She also served on the Moriah 911 committee. She has been an RSVP volunteer since 1998. “If something needs to be done I’ll help out if I can,” Genier said. “I have time.” The “Holiday for Sharing” program is Genier ’s pride and joy, though. “It really gives me a good feeling to know I’m making something someone else can needs,” she said. In naming Genier Volunteer of the Year, RSVP also cited other program participants. It gave “honorable mention” to Bernice Mayer of Port Henry, who volunteered 1,450.50 hours last year, Evelyn Mingo of Schroon Lake with 1,435.75 hours, Marilyn Cross of Ticonderoga with 1,336 hours and Evelyn Gravelle of Ticonderoga with 1,032 hours.

Moriah firefighters Port Henry FD seeking new members By Fred Herbst plan open house

Event set for April 9 and 10

By Fred Herbst MORIAH — The Moriah Fire Department will take part in a state-wide effort to attract more volunteers. The fire company will hold at open house Saturday and Sunday, April 9 and 10, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. as part of National Volunteer Week. The goal of the open house is to increase general interest and membership in the local fire department. The Moriah Fire Department has 46 active members, making it one of the largest in the area. To keep interest high, the company is forming a junior fire department, according to Bill Trybendis. “The open house is part of a state-wide event sponsored by FASNY,” Trybendis said. “We would like the community to stop by the fire house during the open house and look at our equipment and learn about our department.” The Moriah Fire Department now has two engines, a 2,500-gallon tanker, a mini pumper, a brush truck, an 80foot snorkel truck and a rescue truck. The open house and recruitment effort is part of a statewide event sponsored by the Firemen’s Association of the State of New York that weekend. “We recognize some fire departments hold open houses in the fall, but this event is not one focused around fire prevention,” said David Jacobowitz, FASNY president, said. “This is an opportunity for volunteer fire departments to unite statewide to educate and draw in more members and to demonstrate to the public what volunteering is all about. “FASNY is encouraging every volunteer fire department statewide to participate in this open house event on April 9 and 10 as part of National Volunteer Week,” he said. “If you have ever been curious about what it’s like to be a part of the New York State volunteer fire service, this is your chance to learn about and experience it for yourself. Come see what it’s like to serve your community and enter into a brotherhood and sisterhood unlike any other.” A fire department formed in Moriah in 1882, but ceased operation around the turn of the century. The present-day Moriah Fire Department officially formed in 1937. The unit still has the 1937 Dodge fire truck that was put into service at that time.

PORT HENRY — The Port Henry Fire Department will join other local companies in holding an open house as part of a state-wide effort to attract more volunteers. The Port Henry event will be Saturday, April 9, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. One of the oldest fire departments in New York, the Port Henry FD traces its roots to 1874. It has 45 members 1,200 village residents and covering eight square miles. “As history dictates, the fire department acts as an anchor to the community,” said James Hughes, Port Henry fire chief. “Our all volunteer fire department assumes the responsibility of protecting our businesses, residences and people.” The Port Henry Fire Department answers to the village board. “It is the responsibility of village gov-

ernment that we provide the means, i.e., fire station, fire trucks, tools, equipment, etc., in order to continue to meet these goals,” Hughes said. “The continuous planning, maintenance and improvement to our village infrastructure is imperative if we desire our community to continue to thrive and grow and to attract to new businesses and residents to our village.” The fire company has three pumpers, one brush truck, one rescue van and a dive/rescue boat. The department also supports a Jaws of Life Team with 16 certified vehicle extrication technicians, 16 surface ice rescue technicians, four certified scuba divers and three emergency medical technicians. The squad also has two members on the Essex County HAZ MAT Response Team. In 2010 the department responded to 64 calls. “In order to continue to provide the level of service and protection the community has grown accustomed to, our

department is in continual need of volunteers to support our efforts,” Hughes said. “These efforts include, but are not limited to, emergency response, firefighter training and required maintenance of our trucks and equipment. “The Port Henry Fire Department has accomplished a great deal over our 137 years of existence,” he added. “However, so much more must be done. To continue our work and meet the obligation to our residents, we need help from people who care about our community, our neighbors, our department, and our mission.” Hughes said the Port Henry Fire Department will welcome new members. Applications may be picked up at the station the day of the open house or by contacting Hughes at 546-7053. “As a result of this recruitment campaign, we are hoping we will be able to spark the interest of residents within our town to join the fire service,” the chief said.

Dragway Day being planned By Fred Herbst NORTH HUDSON — Plans are now being formulated for the fourth annual North Hudson Classic Car Cruise In and Dragway Day May 7. Activities will begin at 9 a.m. and continue through mid afternoon. Cars will be on display at the North Hudson fire house and town office parking area, 3034 US Route 9, North Hudson. The event started in 2008 as a reunion of participants and attendees at the North Hudson Dragway, which operated for several years until the late 1960s. Drivers brought their cars to show and many people brought pictures of the race days as well as DVDs and cassettes to watch. The day was enjoyed by all and there were many requests to have future events. The 2009 event saw even higher attendance and classic cars were included. Live music was provided and refreshments donated by local food establishments were provided. The 2010 event continued that theme with more cars on display. That format will continue this year. There will be no entrance fees nor will any trophies be given. Memorabilia of the dragway is encouraged as people are still interested in the history and lore of the drag strip days. Anyone who has mementos from the Dragway days or a classic car to display is encouraged to participate. Anyone who would like to participate, volunteer, make a donation of any kind or has an idea for the event can contact Doug Bensen by e-mail at or call April Bessey at 532-7877.

Hurdles exist before hatchery can sell fish to general public By Keith Lobdell ELIZABETHTOWN — Just because it has permission, does not mean Essex County will be in the fish business tomorrow. County chairman Randy Douglas said the county still has to come into compliance in a number of areas before the Crown Point Fish Hatchery will be in a position to be able to sell fish. “I spoke to the attorney from the DEC recently and there are some things that still need to be put into place,” Douglas said during a recent regular meeting of the Essex County Board of Supervisors. “Once we get into compliance, then we will get ready to go through the next phase.” Douglas said the next step after compliance will be to get the deed restrictions removed from the fish hatchery property so it can be used for commercial use. However, the removal of the restrictions will not mean the hatchery would be selling fish the next day. “When we get there, we will have to have other discussions,” said Douglas. “They have to understand that this is a process to change the deed,” county manager Daniel Palmer said. “Whether or not we sell fish is a conversation that we are still going to have down the road.” Douglas added the county has received comments from local commercial fishermen concerned about the impact that a county hatchery sale would have on their business.

Crown Point Cub Scout Pack 70, led by Pack Master Steve Mildon and assisted by Boy Scouts Duke and Jake Mildon, Nick Vezzi and Keegan Choffat, held its annual pinewood derby recently.

Push on to name county building after late sheriff New police center, jail may be named for Henry Hommes

By Keith Lobdell

ELIZABETHTOWN — Essex County is looking into a name change at the Public Safety building. The change would be made to honor the late Henry Hommes, who served as Essex County Sheriff from 1998 until his death in 2010. Henry Hommes “His life was all about Former Essex County Sheriff public service from the Army to the State Police to the Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) to finally taking this position as sheriff,” cur-

rent Essex County Sheriff Richard Cutting said about the proposal. “I am behind this 100 percent.” Cutting said that he had been looking into the costs that surround a potential name change of the building. “I do not think that this will entail anything more than changing the signs and having a re-dedication ceremony,” Cutting said. “I am still looking into getting estimates on how much it would cost to change the lettering.” Hommes was the Essex County Sheriff when the Public Safety Building and Essex County Correctional Facility was built and dedicated in 2007. The Essex County Board of Supervisors unanimously seconded a resolution to look into the costs associated with the change during their ways and means committee meeting March 28. “I know that this is something that Gerry (Gerald Morrow of Chesterfield) has been looking into,” board chairman Randy Douglas said. “I think that we will have this matter determined by June or July.” The building would be renamed the Henry H. Hommes Memorial Jail and Public Safety Building.

Police said that when they asked Hayes for identification as a police officer, he could not provide any. A check with Texas authorities showed he was

not currently nor ever had been employed as a law-enforcement officer in the state. Hayes was charged with misdemeanor second-degree criminal impersonation/pretending to be a public servant. He was arraigned in Moriah Town Court and sent to the Essex County Jail when he could not pay bail of $2,000 cash or $4,000 bond. He has a return date in Town Court for April 5.

Project to bury power cable under local waterways moves forward By John Gereau LAKE CHAM“Our greatest concerns PLAIN — The plan to install an underwater were in the southern par t power line on the of the lake where we anticbottom of Lake ipated wetlands impac ts Champlain that will eventually feed New and perhaps greater sediYork City with Canament disturbance.”‘ dian power crossed another regulatory Mike Winslow hurdle last week. Lake Champlain Committee The developers of the system — Canadian-based Transmission Developers Inc. (TDI) — still have a number of approvals to obtain, but the company is hopeful it can begin work next year, entering the Lake Champlain phase in 2013, said Donald Jessome, president and CEO of the company. At the same time, area lake preservation groups hope their concerns will be taken into consideration as the project moves forward. The plan, dubbed the Champlain Hudson Power Express, received a green light March 21 from the New York Independent System Operators — a group that oversees the state’s electricity market. It now faces a handful of other regulatory obstacles, including approval by the New York’s Public Service Commission and Army Corp of Engineers. Under the plan, Transmission Developers would bury two 5-inch power lines from Montreal to New York City, mostly under waterways, including the bottom of Lake Champlain and the Champlain Canal. The line would then exit the canal in Fort Edward and be buried inland along railroad right-of-ways for about 70 miles to avoid areas of PCB contamination in the Hudson River. The line would re-enter the river south of Albany, ending in a sub-station in Yonkers. The system is estimated to cost nearly $2 billion and stretch 385 miles. When complete, it would supply New York City with 1,000 Megawatts of power. The average power transmission line, in comparison, is approximately 30 Megawatts. Power would come from hydroelectric and wind sources in Canada. New York City has long been underpowered while its residents pay some of the highest rates in the country, according to LTI. The new transmission line would power more than 1 million homes, saving consumers roughly $750 million a year, Jessome said. Mike Winslow, a staff scientist with the Lake Champlain Committee, said his group has identified a number of potential concerns with the plan, including disturbing historic wrecks and sensitive sediment areas on the bottom of the lake. “Our greatest concerns were in the southern part of the lake where we anticipated wetlands impacts and perhaps

Young skier dies at West Mountain GLENS FALLS — Sean M. LaFlash, 17, of Fort Ann suffered cardiac arrest near the triple chair lift at West Mountain, causing him to ski off the trail into a wooded area last week. The victim was found by a friend who has lost track of him while skiing together on a trail called “Banister”. LaFlash’s accident was reported to ski patrol, who transported LaFlash to the base of the mountain. He was then transported to the Glens Falls Hospital by the West Glens Falls Emergency Squad, but later succumbed to his injuries at the Hospital, according to the Warren County Sherrif’s office. LaFlash wasn’t wearing a helmet at the time of the accident. The accident is under investigation by the Warren County Sheriff’s Office.

Local couple charged with fraud

This is the proposed route of a mostly underwater power line Transmission Developers Inc. would like to build through the region, including a portion that would run on the bottom of Lake Champlain. greater sediment disturbance,” Winslow said. In response, the company is considering altering its route in that area, though Jessome could not divulge the exact route because the company is working that out with the New York’s Public Service Commission, in a process known as Article VII. “We are currently in settlement discussions in the Article VII process, and routing issues are deemed to be confidential. We expect to have more detail in this regard by mid April,” Jessome said. Winslow said the company should contribute to the cost of cleaning up Lake Champlain and keeping the watershed healthy if it is allowed to use the lake as its conduit. The company has said underwater installation is $2 million cheaper per mile than burying lines underground. “There is so much work that needs to be done to clean Lake Champlain that it only seems fair if the company is going to be using the lake to benefit themselves and their stockholders that they make a substantial contribution to those clean up efforts,” Winslow said. Jessome said it is the company’s intent to do just that. “In projects of this type, funds to support studies and mitigation are typically part of the certification process,” he said. TDI will also be providing annual financial assistance for environmental projects, he said. In addition, Jessome said local labor will be used to help install the power line — which will be dredged three feet below the lake’s bottom. In total, the company hopes to create about 200 jobs during the installation process. For more about the project, including a detailed question and answer section, visit

Local students fair well at state conference Ti student tapped as youth governor

By Lindsay Yandon ALBANY — Paige Hughes, a junior at Ticonderoga Senior High School marched to the front of the room, crowded with roughly 650 of her peers, to accept her appointment as youth governor at the annual New York State Youth and Government Conference in Albany earlier this month. Hughes is the first student in 15 years to give her local district, district three, a youth governor election win. District three is comprised of schools from Newcomb, Bolton, Minerva, Johnsburg and Ticonderoga as well as members from the Glens Falls YMCA. Youth and Government is a national club initiated by the YMCA in states across the country. Participating students mock the actual happenings in each branch of US government. The goal of Youth and Government is to empower teens to make a difference in their communities and to groom the skills and experiences necessary for future leaders. “It was a very successful year for the district,” said Jackie Palandrani, district advisor. Other awards included Taylor Goodspeed of Newcomb Central School win-

Paige Hughes ning his election for deputy speaker of the freedom assembly. Hughes was joined by Evan Malone and Charlotte Caldwell of Bolton as selected students for this years Conference on National Affairs, which will take place in North Carolina this June. Madlyn Wilson of Bolton and Katie Palandrani of Ticonderoga were chosen as alternates. Carl Ciccarelli, Matt Smith, Marisa Parotta and Matthew Hayden also received branch-specific awards. “The high point this year was definitely Paige’s victory,” said district advisor Ted Caldwell. “For a North Country girl to take over the governor position is pretty remarkable.” Local students met earlier this year to hone their skills before the statewide conference and their work has

seemed to pay off. “These conferences are such a great experience for the students,” said Johnsburg advisor Colleen Muragh. “It prepares them for coming conferences as well as college and beyond.” Caldwell was also eager to commend the youth-led conference on how it prepares students for their future. As the program grows each year, it becomes clear why it should still be around, he said. “It enables these students to speak out about important issues,” added Caldwell. “The program and what it teaches can lead to full time jobs.” Mike Quigan graduated form Bolton Central School in 2005 and was a member of Youth and Government throughout high school. He now works in Albany as a budget analyst in the state Ways and Means Committee for the minority party. “Youth and Government is the single most important part of why I am doing what I am doing,” he said. “I come acrosss things all the time that I learned in Youth and Government.” The program strives to give students an in-depth look at the government process and they are both accurate and successful, according to Quigan. He met with local students while they were in Albany and reminded them of this, while encouraging them to get as involved with the program as they possibly can during high school.

Students provide a local Adirondack lesson

Adirondack Day at the Wild Center featured students from Newcomb Central School, and their teacher Terri Smith, gathered in the Great Hall. Photo by Joe Hackett


ecently, while crossing a log that spans a brook in my back yard, I experienced an epiphany of sorts. Balanced on that birch, I realized that while sharing adventures in natural settings, there will always be opportunities for building bridges. These spans may be as insignificant as a simple link between the opposite sides of a small mounain stream, or as powerful as the forest-forged connections between family members and small mountains, open fields and old friends. This connection, which serves as a reattachement to our own nature, is a key component of outdoor travel, adventure and discovery. It also serves as one of the most important links to connect the various North Country communities with an unrivaled commonality. As I crossed over the brook, I was not just getting to the other side; I was recapturing a unique sense of adventure

and discovery that has happily haunted me since my youngest days. It was an experience that provided me with a sense of place; where I knew I belonged. This same sense of belonging was readily apparent last week at The Wild Center in Tupper Lake, when I visited to attend the second annual Adirondack Day. It is an event that was developed to allow students from local school districts an opportunity to showcase and share their accomplishments in achieving academic ‘challenges’ designed by the Adirondack Curriculum Project,(ACP). The ACP was formed in 2003 by a group of individual educators, schools, businesses and organizations, with the purpose of fostering increased public understanding, appreciation, and stewardship of the Adirondack region's natural and cul-

tural resources. The organization hosts a Web site which offers a long list of projects or ‘Challenges’ that permit schools to incorporate aspects of the region’s history into the educational process, at, In 2005, the NYS Conservation Council selected the ACP for their annual "Conservation Education Organization" Award for their continuing efforts to bring the Northern Forest into the classroom. Last week, students and teachers hailing from Tupper Lake, Newcomb, Indian Lake and Potsdam school districts traveled to Tupper Lake to present their Adirondack Challenge projects. Their efforts included original poetry inspired by Adirondack art, a presentation about Adirondack animals, a reader's theatre presentation, a display about Adirondack habitats, artwork created out of leaves,

April 2, 2011 and a combined musical effort that included the voices of all the students. Not only did these efforts meet or exceed New York State Board of Education Standards, the students discovered the unique commonality they all share in the culture of the Adirondacks. In a similar manner, they all crossed an Adirondack creek on the same log bridge. Funded by the Pearsall Foundation, the event was more than just a fun-filled day of learning, it provided an opportunity for the students to broaden their horizons. It also allowed them to discover the common thread that is woven into a tapestry of local culture that they all share. Seniors from Newcomb joined second graders from Tupper Lake as part of a North Country culture that has endured for centuries before them, and if their combined energy and enthusiasm is any indication; it is a culture that will exist well beyond their time. Although I consider myself a conservationist, I am also a preservationist, but not in the common sense of the word. I believe in preserving our way of life, the heritage of outdoor sporting pursuits and the numerous North County traditions that make our region unique. These traditions, which include a love of the outdoors, respect for nature and an overwhelming sense of belonging, are also regularly amplified by the seasons. We suffer the similar sting of winter and bleed equal pints of blood during blackfly season. We travel the same rutted roads in mud season and enjoy the same sweet summer waters. But it isn’t just hardships that serve to bring us together, rather it is the many simple pleasures of life in the North Woods, where we know and appreciate our neighbors and the surrounding woods and waters with equal enthusiasm. These are just of few of the common threads that I discovered as students from Potsdam joined with those from Indian Lake, Newcomb and Tupper to sing about the Adirondacks. Their voices formed a bridge that continues to span the generations. It offered a combined note that served to connect the many special places that each of them calls home. Regardless of where travels will take them, eventually this will always be their home. In their young faces, I saw the future of the park and as much as I enjoyed the performance, it was also sad that there weren’t more adults around to hear their song. We could all use a little refresher course. Joe Hackett is a guide and sportsman residing in Ray Brook. Contact him at

With the mercury barely breaking the freezing point as I write this and more frigid weather in the forecast, it appears the opening of this year ’s trout season is more symbolic than anything else. What a difference a year makes. Last year at this time we were hitting the links and trolling open water on back ponds. This year I’d need snowshoes to get to the Radisson behind my garage. In the meantime, I made the mistake of uncovering my big boat last weekend. I bought a newer 24-footer to chase lakers and salmon with but have yet to outfit it with the equipment I salvaged from my old boat — the Laker Taker II. So, I decided to get a jump on that tedious task and accomplished a great deal last Sunday before crashing in my recliner next to the woodstove with a can of Genessee river water. But before I could enjoy the first sip, smiling Tom the evereffervescent weatherman came on the tube and happily predicted half a foot of snow on the horizon. I peaked out the window at the sun setting behind my fully exposed boat, and slowly pulled my soggy boots back on. Trudging back out into the cold to cover the boat for the second time this winter, all I could think about was knocking out one of Tom’s pearly whites. I know the poor guy can’t control the weather — but does he have to be so dang perky about it?

Update on ol’ split ear

Infamous Ticonderoga outdoorsman and marathoner Richard Johndrown — better known in hunting circles as SilverrrrrrrrrrrBulletttttttttttttt — dropped me a line recently to let me know he had the pleasure of scoring Robert Lavergne’s 20-point buck shot last season. For those who may have missed it, I wrote a column in November about this buck, which Lavergne shot Nov. 6 on land along the Cedar River outside Indian Lake. The deer had become quite well known in the area, by residents who had spotted him wandering near town after

deer season. He was easily identified by a split he had in one ear, presumably from fighting for dominance. His shed antlers had also been found, and local hunters were aware of the significant antler growth he possessed. Johndrow, who serves as measurer chairman for the New York State Big Bob Lavergne with the unique 20-point Buck Club, non-typical he shot last year. Lavergne’s non-typical sported 20 countable points with 10 non-typical points totaling 37 1/8 inches resulting in a final score of 179 2/8. The gross score of the rack is 191-1/8. That is enough to make it the fifth largest non-typical on record taken in Essex County. Other notable racks from last season included a 16-point taken by Dave Edwards in Cortland County. The buck net scored 182-0 and grossed 206-0. It is the fourth largest typical buck ever shot in New York. The largest non-typical buck measured this year is a 15-pointer taken by Brandon Peters in Niagara County, Johndrow said. That buck net scored 194-0 with a gross score of 203. Hunters have until May 1 to have their bucks scored for inclusion in the New York State Big Buck Club. Johndrow is always more than happy to score a buck taken during last season or prior years and does not charge for the service. He can be reached at 585-4425 or by e-mail at There is an entry fee of $15 for the New York State Big Buck Club and $40 for Boone & Crockett and Pope & Young. The minimum net scores are New York State Big Buck Club: 140 typical and 165 non-typical [rifle]; 120 typical and 145 non-typical [bow]. • Boone & Crockett awards category: 160 typical and 185 non-typical. All time book is 170 typical and 195 nontypical. • National Muzzleloader Association: 130 typical and 160 non-typical.

The antlers of Robert Lavergne’s 20-point buck, shot last season near the Cedar River, scored 179 2/8. The gross score of the rack was 1911/8. That was enough to make it the fifth largest non-typical on record taken in Essex County. Photo courtesy of Richard Johndrow

• Pope & Young [bow] is 125 typical and 155 nontypical. John Gereau is managing editor of Denton Publications and an avid outdoorsman. His column appears regularly.

Hague triathlon registration open Fifth annual race June 25

By Fred Herbst HAGUE — The North Country Triathlon continues to grow. Organizers expect more than 500 athletes for the fifth annual event June 25 in Hague. Registration is now open. In 2010 nearly 400 people finished the sprint, Olympic and relay races. They hailed from 15 states and five countries. “The race, which has been growing in size each year, has become a landmark event for the region,” said Randy Engler, the race founder. Volunteer Director Donna Levenstien said the race also attracts more than150 local volunteers as well as and safety and rescue personnel from the area. “The town of Hague, which stands at the edge of Lake George, provides an amazing backdrop for the race with crystal clear waters for swimmers, rolling hills for runners, and aggressive mountains for cycling,” said Race Director John Hartley. “It truly is an athlete’s paradise.” The North Country Triathlon is actually three races — a sprint triathlon that includes a 750-meter swim, a 20-kilometer bike ride and a 5-kilometer run; an Olympic triathlon that includes a 1.5-kilometer swim, a 40-kilometer bike ride and a 10-kilometer run; and a relay. Both races start at the Lake George Land Conservancy beach, adjacent to Hague Beach. Swimmers go south towards Jenkin’s Point and return. Competitors then mount their bikes. The 40K course

heads to Ticonderoga and up Chilson hill and back, while the 20K course goes south on Route 8 up Graphite Mountain to West Hague Road to the New Hague Road back to the beach. Both runs go south on Route 9N toward Silver Bay and back.Terrance Fox was the leading man and Mara Fronhofer the top woman in the sprint race last year. Todd Shatynski was the top man and Michelle Rosowsky the first woman in the Olympic tri in 2010. The sprint race had 164 finishers, the Olympic race 137 finishers and the relay attracted 12 teams. Proceeds from the North Country Triathlon go to charity. Among the charities the race supports is The Hope Lodge of Burlington, a “home away from home” for cancer patients receiving treatment at Burlington’s Fletcher-Allen cancer center. Engler chose The Hope Lodge as a way to honor his mother and his sister, who are both cancer survivors. “We’re excited to announce that by the close of our fifth race, we’ll have donated over $15,000 to our charity partners,” said Engler, who spent his childhood summers exploring the shores of Lake George. “I can’t thank our sponsors and many volunteers enough. This has been truly an amazing experience.” Sponsors of the fifth annual North Country Triathlon include the Town of Hague, Green Mountain Coffee, Silver Bay YMCA, Codino’s Foods, Lake George Mirror, Hague Chamber of Commerce, Warren Country Board of Tourism,, XTERRA Wetsuits, IZZE Sparkling Juices, TD Bank and For race registration, volunteer opportunities, sponsor requests and other information go online at
