Hawaiian visitors greeted by snow


CFES program continues

Police chief to attend Chamber forum

By Fred Herbst TICONDEROGA — Despite being shocked by nearly a foot of snow on their arrival, a group of Hawaiian students visiting Ticonderoga Middle School felt right at home. “I sense the ‘ohana spirit,” said Karlene Kauleinamoku. “Everyone is very welcoming. I feel a sense of family here.” Part of Hawaiian culture, ‘ohana means family. It emphasizes that families are bound together and members must cooperate and remember one another. Kauleinamoku, a teacher at Dole Middle School in the Ka Ha’aheo O Kalihi section of Honolulu, was part of a group of six students and two teachers who visited Ticonderoga March 19-24 as part of a College For Every Student exchange program. It’s the second time Dole students have visited Ticonderoga. Ti students went to Hawaii two years ago and hope to return in 2014.

Casino to be built in Port Henry?






By Fred Herbst















PORT HENRY — A casino on the shore of Lake Champlain makes sense to the Moriah town board. That’s why trustees have asked New York State to consider Port Henry as a site for one of the seven casino locations to be approved later this year. “Moriah is officially asking to be considered as a casino location,” Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafa-

va said. “We feel a location on Lake Champlain is perfect. I, personally, think Port Henry would be a great location. “Realistically, what chance is there a casino will be built in the Adirondack Park?” he continued. “I don’t know, but if we don’t try we’ll never find out.” Gov. Andrew Cuomo has proposed building casinos in upstate New York as part of a plan to enhance the state’s economy. The state legislature passed a constitutional amendment last year legalizing up to seven casinos. It must be passed again this year and then be approved in a statewide voter referendum before becoming law.

Anticipating approval, Cuomo plans to select the casino locations in 2013. “There hasn’t been much discussion in the community about this,” Scozzafava said. “I’m not sure what people think. I’m certain some people like the idea and others don’t. At this point we’re just keeping our options open.” New York currently only allows table gambling in Native American resorts. The state also allows companies to open and run video lottery terminals at so-called racinos in Saratoga, Yonkers and Queens. CONTINUED ON PAGE 13

Minor arrested for rape in Ti By Katherine Clark

Call to make an appointment 963-4275 Smith House Health Center 39 Farrell Road, Willsboro 963-4275 41239

TICONDEROGA — A male under the age of 16 was arrested for forcible rape of a minor on March 27. According to Investigator Dan LaFrance of the Ticonderoga Police Department, the suspect was arrested for first-degree rape, sexual intercourse by forcible compulsion. The suspect has been arraigned in criminal court and the case will be moved to family court. “Because he was over the age of 16 at the time of his arrest he was charged in criminal court and because he was 15 or younger at the time of the crime the case will be moved into family court,” said LaFrance.

The ages of the alleged rapist and victim cannot be revealed due to the suspect’s eligibility for youthful offender status and to protect the identity of the victim, LaFrance said. “Because the age of both parties and the sensitivity of this case the police can disclose very little information,” said LaFrance. The alleged rape took place in the spring of 2012 and was reported this past January, LaFrance said. “It is not uncommon for us to arrest offenders at this age of felony crimes, but in the 10 years I have worked here I have never seen a felony crime of this nature against someone this young,” he said. Paul Rubino, juvenile delinquent prosecutor, said he is unable to comment on the case or confirm if he will handle the case.

Fort Ti receives grant to fund school programs


TICONDEROGA — Fort Ticonderoga recently received a grant from Champlain National Bank supporting school outreach programs in several northern New York communities in 2013. “Fort Ticonderoga, recognized as one of America’s most significant historic sites, is the gem of the North Country,” said Joe Shaw, president and CEO of Champlain National Bank. “We are so happy to increase awareness of this tremendous educational resource that we have in our region.” Funding from Champlain National Bank will enable fourth grade classes at schools in Crown Point, Elizabethtown, Keene, Lake Placid, Westport, and Willsboro to bring an interpreter from Fort Ticonderoga into the classroom to share the experience of being a soldier on the Lake Champlain fron-

tier during the American Revolution. During the program students learn about the daily life of soldiers. Students have a hands-on experience with high-quality reproductions that Continental soldiers carried during the Revolution. Students obtain an understanding of the purpose and function of each item and the larger concepts related to service in America’s War for Independence. “The most effective way for students to learn about their history is for them to experience it,” said Beth Hill, Fort Ticonderoga’s president and CEO. “This expeditionary learning program connects students to a variety of inter-disciplinary topics and activities through the lens of Fort Ticonderoga’s history and helps teachers meet core curriculum goals.” Funding will be available on a first-

come, first-served basis for Crown Point Central School, ElizabethtownLewis Central School, Keene Central School, Lake Placid Central School, Westport Central School, and Willsboro Central School. Funding support from Champlain National Bank covers all the program costs, including mileage. Fort Ticonderoga offers outreach programs throughout the school year in northeastern New York and western Vermont. To learn more about programs for students and teachers from Fort Ticonderoga visit Teachers interested in learning more about school programs, including outreach programs, should contact Rich Strum, director of education, at or at 585-6370.

Ti students visit New York City museums Classes combine to raise money TICONDEROGA — Two Ticonderoga High School classes and one Ticonderoga Middle School class combined efforts to travel to New York City for educational field trips recently. Janet Mallon’s eighth grade Regents Living Environment students, Jennee Darragh’s 12th grade AP biology students and Britney McCarthy’s High School art club students raised funds to travel to New York City. The two science classes went to the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) to visit and study in the Spitzer Hall of Human Origins; the Halls of Biodiversity, Ocean Life, North American Mammals, and the Hall of African Animals; the Hall of Pacific Island People; the Theodore Roosevelt Exhibit and more. Special presentations were viewed in the Hayden Planetarium “Journey to the Stars;” at an IMAX film “Migration of the Butterfly;” in the Butterfly Conservatory; and at the “Our Global Kitchen” exhibit. It was a somewhat nostalgic trip for the 12th graders because many of them had been in Mallon’s eighth grade class the first year her class ventured to the museum. McCarthy’s group visited

Rough road video a winner


own of Newcomb officials are cautiously optimistic that their attempt to shame New York state into fixing Route 28N earlier than planned has succeeded in getting the Department of Transportation’s attention. And we are, too. A day after Newcomb Planning Board member Paul Hai released a YouTube video highlighting the poor condition of Route 28N on Thursday, March 28, DOT Director of Communications Beau Duffy released an official statement: “Route 28N is a critical part of the North Country’s infrastructure that is in need of repair. Ensuring that the road is well maintained is critically important to our efforts to increase tourism to the area and showcase the jewel that is the Adirondack Park. More importantly, however, local residents simply should not have to put up with substandard and potentially dangerous road conditions. At the direction of Governor Cuomo and Commissioner McDonald, repairs to 28N will take place on an expedited basis, commencing in the coming weeks.” Wow. The little town of Newcomb — population 436 in the most remote section of the state — stood up to the goliaths in Albany and won. Newcomb Town Supervisor George Canon was supposed to meet with DOT officials in May about repairing State Route 28N. But after the video was released in the media — on the Facebook page of the News Enterprise, the Times Union’s Capital Confidential blog, and other websites — Canon received a phone call from the DOT to expedite the meeting, which took place Tuesday afternoon, April 2, at Canon’s office. DOT Region 1 (Capital District) Acting Regional Director Sam Zhou had to drive on Route 28N to get to the Newcomb Town Hall. We hope he also drove to Long Lake, where the worst section is located. Newcomb officials initiated a letterwriting campaign but received a reply that was less than helpful: “Only 1.5 miles of Route 28N meet the criteria for a major rehab project.” That prompted a response from Paul Hai in the video: “Which 1.5 miles do you suppose it is?” After all, the DOT has signs on Route

28N stating “Rough Road” for 13 miles. So is it 1.5 miles or 13 miles? The letter-writing campaign wasn’t enough to move the DOT into fixing Route 28N, which hasn’t been reconstructed since 1979 (gas prices at 90 cents/gallon). But one quirky, clever and direct video — with 6:42 minutes of interviews, information and slapstick — won the day, thanks to attention from traditional and social media. We think Newcomb framed the argument correctly. Hai interviewed motorists in Long Lake, highway officials, and the town supervisors in Newcomb and Long Lake. Aside from the obvious safety issues and damage to vehicles, Hai reminded viewers that the state of New York is spending millions of dollars buying 69,000 acres of former Finch, Pruyn land to add it to the Forest Preserve. And much of that land — particularly around the Boreas Ponds — is located in Newcomb. In the video, Long Lake Supervisor Clark Seaman said people may not return to Newcomb once seeing the newly acquired lands. Canon said people may just stay away completely. “There’s other places to go,” Canon said. “And if you’ve got a choice, you’re not going to bang your car all to pieces, so I’m hoping that the governor understands that this is a big deal for us.” We do, too. Newcomb is on the front lines of the Forest Preserve experiment in the Adirondack Park. Residents have been promised publicly — by Gov. Andrew Cuomo — that the Finch, Pruyn land deal will help the local economy. Supervisors from five towns — Long Lake, Newcomb, North Hudson, Minerva and Indian Lake — have been meeting with state officials to figure out how the towns can benefit from those purchases. State leaders need to realize that they can’t just buy chunks of land and expect tourists to easily flock to these remote corners of the Park; the purchase comes with an obligation to assure access. And access means a complete reconstruction of State Route 28N. Talk is cheap. What Newcomb needs is action. And they need it now. —Assistant Managing Editor Andy Flynn

The price of free speech


his country, once called the melting pot of the world, was known for taking in immigrants from all corners of the Earth and merging their cultures into ours to create a patchwork democracy. Melting pot is a term you don’t hear used much anymore, but more than any other nation, the term still applies to the U.S. today. Sadly, it didn’t happen overnight, but over a period of time through strife and turmoil America grew to be known as the land of opportunity where freedom reined and personal beliefs were to be respected. Anyone had a shot to make it if they had fearless perseverance, conviction of beliefs and a willingness to work hard. Throughout our history, we’ve many examples of individuals that changed the course of the nation as a result of their willingness to stand up and be counted, many times going against popular opinion. One would think that we would have learned from mistakes of the past. One would hope that only through constructive and open discussion of the issues, we could as a nation address the issues of the day in a manner that intelligently seeks to resolve any differences and reach a common ground. Today’s hot button topics are many: immigration, gun control, same sex marriage, health care, war, religion, energy, the economy, women’s rights, education, environment, unions and big business. But there are many more. It would be nice to think in this great communication age that tolerance and respect for the right to express one’s personal views would be paramount. But instead of encouraging open debate and discussion, we’ve continued down a prejudicial path. When all else fails, we resort to demonizing the messenger. I can understand a certain amount of trash talk among friends discussing sports, truck brands or burger choices, but on important issues in our nation’s most prestigious schools I would hope those institutions would be open minded and inquisitive. Dr. Benjamin Carson, a pediatric neurosurgeon who came into the national spotlight in February after criticizing health care and other policies of President Barack Obama at the National Prayer Breakfast, has been asked to step down as the com-

mencement speaker at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine only after making recent comments on Dan Alexander same sex marThoughts from riage. Behind the Pressline His comments were based on his personal beliefs. Carson stated, “My thoughts are that marriage is between a man and a woman. It’s a well-established, fundamental pillar of society and no group, be they gays, be they NAMBLA, be they people who believe in bestiality — it doesn’t matter what they are — they don’t get to change the definition.” One of the petitions stated: “We retain the highest respect for Dr. Carson’s achievements and value his right to publicly voice political views. Nevertheless, we feel that these expressed values are incongruous with the values of Johns Hopkins and deeply offensive to a large proportion of our student body.” In his public apology in the Baltimore Sun, Carson stated, “First of all, I certainly believe gay people should have all the rights that anybody else has. What I was basically saying is that as far as marriage is concerned, that has traditionally been between a man and a woman and nobody should be able to change that.” With respect to the commencement, he said, “I would say this is their day, and the last thing I would want to do is rain on their parade.” As a nation we must be open to tolerance and trying to understand both sides of the issues to reach a compromise. Each side of every issue has valid arguments, but if neither side is willing to acknowledge and address those arguments, we will only prolong the anguish, anger and divisiveness these issues create in our democratic society. The world will always be full of people with different views. As a human race, we apparently still have a long way to go in learning how to constructively deal with our differences and provide true freedom of speech.

Letters to the Editor

Against repeal

Response to letter

To the Times of Ti:

To the Times of Ti:

I attended the Essex County Board of Supervisors Meeting at which the Board voted in favor of repeal of the SAFE ACT. I agree with those that claim there are provisions of the SAFE Act that are ill conceived and unclear, but I also think that it includes provisions that are reasonable. The Board’s resolution in favor of repeal rather than amendment of the SAFE ACT, its invocation of the Second Amendment in support of repeal, and the Board’s failure to offer suggested changes, perpetrates the unfounded notion that all gun control laws are a violation of the Second Amendment. This is a point I tried to make, unsuccessfully, at the meeting: The U.S. Supreme Court’s gun control decisions of 2008 and 2010 made it clear that the Second Amendment is “not a right to keep and carry any weapons whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose.” As one expert notes, “the American right to bear arms has alway coexisted with gun regulation. The Founding Fathers had gun laws so restrictive that today’s NRA leaders would never support them.” Justice Scalia’s majority opinion upholding an individual right to bear arms was limited to the facts of the case: the use of a handgun for self protection in the home. Lower court decision since the Supreme Court’s decisions have upheld many different gun control laws. In his nuanced opinion, Justice Scalia noted that Supreme Court’s opinion should not cast doubt on a wide range of gun laws. I am a strong supporter of hunting as a sport and as a way of controlling species overpopulation. The County’s repeal resolution draws no distinction between the legitimate interest of hunters, and those who hold the radical view, as a number of the audience members asserted, that the Second Amendment bars any restriction on the ownership and use of firearms including bans on weapons whose purposes are not for hunting but to kill humans. Monique Weston Keene Editor’s note: This letter ran a week earlier in the Valley News. The following letter was written in response.

I respond to Monique Weston of Keene, whose letter to the editor in the March 30 edition of the Valley News generally supports the SAFE ACT. I would suggest that although the SAFE ACT does contain some good requirements regarding harsher provisions for armed criminals, and on those merits does not justify “throwing the baby out with the bathwater”, the strongest reason for repeal of the SAFE ACT is on the principle that due process was not followed in its passage. Any law, popular or not, justified or not, must not be allowed to stand when the democratic process is ignored and the law is passed without a thorough discussion of its merits and/or shortcomings. It is a very dangerous precedent to have been set if the SAFE ACT is not repealed and replaced with a law that has been enacted after due process. Gov. Cuomo’s emotional remarks before passage of the SAFE ACT, about no one needing “10 bullets to kill a deer,” and “no one uses ‘assault rifles’ for hunting,” show that he has no idea what gun ownership is about. The Second Amendment was not written for hunting. It was not written even for defense of person, family, and personal property. These are secondary to the overarching purpose of guaranteeing that the people would have the right to secure their freedom from the unjust oppression of a tyrannical government. Are “military style” weapons not covered under the Second Amendment? A look at the historical events which led to the drafting of the U.S. Constitution will shed light on this. Remember that the Colonists before the Revolutionary War were British subjects. Their own government used its military forces to invade people’s homes, confiscate firearms and other goods and plunder, abuse the human rights of the Colonists, and enforce unfair taxation. The Colonists formed militias and rose up in rebellion against their government with their own weapons, which in that day were single shot muzzle loading weapons. But the British armed forces were equipped with the same weapons. The weapons technology was the same on both sides of the battlefield! I repeat, the weapons technology was the same on both sides of the battlefield. It must remain so today. On the topic of whether the Second Amendment applies to the right to keep and bear “any weapons whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose,” I would agree that there are some limitations, but those limitations are established

by the words “keep and bear,” in the Second Amendment. Those words mean “own and carry.” One cannot carry a tank, for example. Therefore one may not own a tank. The non-specific nature of the Second Amendment is its beauty and power to last down through the ages. It guarantees that the people must be allowed to own and carry weapons at least equal to those of the government’s armed forces. Why? Because when well trained as a militia, the people, having equal firepower, may have a fair chance to be successful in rising up against the armed forces of an unjust government, and by doing so, secure once again the right to live in a free state. I pray it will never be necessary, but if we allow our politicians to continue playing fast and loose with our Constitution and abuse due process of law, another Revolutionary War may be inevitable. It is a true saying that if we don’t learn from history we are bound to repeat it. Don Mauer Piercefield

Letter about fair To the Times of Ti: Dear Mr. Douglas, After Bertha Rand’s presentation about plans for the 2013 Essex County Fair at our recent March meeting, Westport Town Supervisor Dan Connell shared that the County may be interested in disposing of ownership of the Fair Grounds in Westport. After discussion, the Chamber unanimously instructed me to write to you and the County Board of Supervisors to express our concern for the Fair. We believe the Summer Fair should continue. Furthermore, we urge the supervisors to negotiate a plan where the Fair not only continues, but also the use of the grounds is expanded. A professional event organizer-promoter, possibly hired on a commission basis, should be engaged to schedule events from May through October. Let’s allow the Fair grounds the opportunity to maximize its potential! Thank you for your consideration and for sharing our concerns with the full Board of Supervisors.

ACAP loses funding for after school programs in Westport, Schroon By Keith Lobdell W E S T P O RT — F u n d i n g f o r a p o p u l a r program offered by Adirondack Community Action Programs will not be availa b l e t h i s f a l l , l e a v i n g k i d s i n We s t p o r t and Schroon Lake without their usual after school activities. A c c o rd i n g t o A C A P D i re c t o r A l a n Jones, the grant funding used to run the after school programs in the two towns was cut for the coming school year. It had come through the Advantage After School Program, part of the New York State Office of Children and Family services. "They renewed the grant funding every five years, and this would have been our t h i rd ro u n d o f f u n d i n g , " J o n e s s a i d . " I would say that this is the end of the program, unless something comes out of the state budget, but we have not heard of

anything yet." Jones said ACAP had applied for similar funding through the State Education D e p a r t m e n t f o r t h e i r a f t e r s c h o o l p ro grams in Moriah and Crown Point. "We have not heard anything back on those yet," he said. Jones said that his organization recently received an $1,800 grant from the United Way to help increase enrollment at the Moriah program, but that there were no c u r re n t g r a n t p ro g r a m s a v a i l a b l e t h a t would offer the amount of funding neede d t o ru n a p ro g r a m t h ro u g h o u t t h e school year. "We have looked everywhere — there is just no money available out there," Jones said. "We are constantly looking for revenue sources for the programs."" Currently, there are 29 students, grades K-6, enrolled in the Westport and Schroon Lake programs combined, with a total of six part-time staff members.

County health ratings improve By Keith Lobdell E L I Z A B E T H TO W N — E s s e x C o u n t y has again climbed the rankings of healthiest counties in the state of New York.

address areas of concern,” Jessica Darney Buehler said. The Rankings show how much our quality of life and health outcomes are linked to factors such as our social and economic conditions, e n v i ro n m e n t , health behaviors, and access to clinical care. In a breakdown of factors, Essex County was 14th in mortality rankings and 16th in morbidity, 16th in health behaviors. The county’s highest rankings came in physical environment factors (second), while its lowest came in social and econ o m i c f a c t o r s ( 3 2 n d ) a n d c l i n i c a l c a re (37th).

The Look

The Details

The bride wore a gown from Jacqueline’s Bridal in Glens Falls. The bridesmaids’ gowns were from Danielle’s Bridal in Saratoga Springs. Hair was done by a friend, Humal Noon. The groom and groomsmen wore tuxedos from Jonathon Reid in Queensbury. The rings came from Glennpeter Jewelers in Saratoga Springs. The flowers/bouquet were designed by family friend Tammy Grimaldi. They were beautiful fall bouquets of circus roses, sunflowers, and other flowers with a colorful mix of oranges, yellows, and reds.

The day was captured on film by Jen and Adam Spinelli from “Jennifer Spinelli Photography.” All guests got a recipe for “Spike hot apple cider” with a small bottle of cinnamon flavored liquor and a hot apple cider packet with fall colored Hershey kisses. They had a country, outdoorsy theme to the wedding. The “guest book” was a piece of tree that had the “M+K” heart carved in the center. Everyone signed around it.

The Honeymoon The couple took a honeymoon trip to Italy for a week, visiting Rome, Pisa, Sienna and Florence.

Moriah students construct boats for races in pool By Fred Herbst PORT HENRY — A century after the illfated Titanic was launched, a group of Moriah Central School students have demonstrated their ship-building skills — with better results. Technology students studied water transportation and built kayaks, which were then tested and raced in the school pool. “Overall, I was pleased with each student’s desire to do well and optimize their projects,” teacher Aaron Brassard said. “I was equally impressed with their ability to work together in small groups and problemsolve issues they encountered.” Three teams constructed vessels and raced. “They learned about the parts of a boat, nautical terms, Archimedes’ Principle, water displacement, hull designs, power sources and basic boating safety,” Brassard said. “Students applied their knowledge in an authentic manner as they worked in small groups to create foam kayaks. “When students realized they were going to compete in a race, their interest and motivation levels increased,” he said. Teams featured Noah Gilbo, Ian Williams and Geoffrey Gardner; Lucas Cutting, Joseph Cutting and Joseph Rodriguez; and Max Slycord, Colter Dunning, Neil French and Nicholas Allen. “I really wanted to win and knew that we had to do a good job shaping our hull so that there would be less resistance as it traveled through the water,” Dunning said. Prior to the race students had an opportu-

Students studied water transportation and built kayaks, which were then tested and raced in the school pool. nity to test their boats. “Some had some stability issues,” Brassard said. “However, students were able to problem-solve and make necessary adjustments by adding some small pontoonshaped stabilizers on the port and starboard side of their boat. One team made and attached a small keel that helped keep their kayak on a straight path.” Each team selected a member to paddle their kayak in the race. Each boat had to ma-

neuver the length of the pool and back. The team of Slycord, Dunning, French and Allen proved the fastest. “Each kayak performed fairly well, however, Max Slycord was able to out-paddle the competition and finish first for his team,” Brassard said. Mike Aitner assisted students with the project, sharing his kayak plans. Chris Mazzotte volunteered as pool lifeguard during the trials and competition.

Lake Champlain Bridge has lighting problems, DOT eyes spring repairs By Fred Herbst CROWN POINT — Transportation officials will wait until warm weather to investigate lighting problems on the Lake Champlain Bridge. The $76 million bridge, which opened in November 2011, connects Crown Point and Addison, Vt. Bryan Viggiani, public information officer for the New York State Department of Transportation Region One, said many of the bridge’s more than 300 lights are not working. The span has 66 LED floodlights and 276 LED pedestrian lights on the handrails. “For the Lake Champlain Bridge, NYSDOT is aware that numerous lights are out along the bridge, both within the arches and along the sidewalks,” Viggiani said. “We are committed to getting those fixed. “Once the weather is consistently above freezing this spring, we will begin a thorough investigation of the entire lighting sys-

tem to determine the exact issue,” he said. “We want to avoid unintentional damage that may occur while investigating the system’s wires, which may be brittle to the touch because of the freezing temperatures. “Once any issues are identified, we will go in and fix the lighting. NYSDOT is committed to fixing the lights on the bridge,” Viggiani concluded. The lighting issue has not affected traffic, Viggiani stressed. The new bridge replaced the old Lake Champlain Bridge, which served the region eight decades. That span was immediately closed Oct. 16, 2009, when state transportation officials, without warning, declared it unsafe. The bridge served about 3,000 vehicles a day, meaning people who used the bridge daily to reach their jobs, health care facilities, grocery stores and other necessities were forced to take detours lasting up to four hours. The closing led to the closure of businesses on both sides of the lake and

New York State Department of Transportation will shoot for a spring repair of lights on the Champlain Bridge. crippled tourism. A temporary ferry service was installed to link Crown Point and Addison, Vt. The bridge was demolished in December 2009 and construction started on a new bridge in June 2010. The new bridge opened Nov. 7, 2011. The new Network Tied Arch Bridge is a steel structure with an arch along the center span. The bridge’s design makes it significantly safer than the previous structure and will ensure at least a 75-year service life. Key bridge components are designed to be easily replaceable to reduce maintenance costs. Travel lanes are 11 feet wide, with five-foot shoulders that will help accommodate larger trucks and farm vehicles, as well as provide ample room for bicyclists. Sidewalks are featured on both sides of the bridge.

The eight-story, 402-foot long, 1.8 million pound arch was constructed at Velez Marine in Port Henry, then floated down the lake and lifted into place. Building the arch on land was much faster, easier and cost-efficient than trying to safely build the arch high in the air above Lake Champlain. The new bridge was built at the same location as the previous structure to minimize historic and environmental impacts on the surrounding area. The land adjacent to the bridge on both sides of the lake is historically sensitive, with Native American, French and Indian War and Revolutionary War artifacts buried deep along the shores of Lake Champlain. The ruins of 18th century forts – the French Fort St. Frederic and British Crown Point sit on the New York side of the bridge.

Schroon Lake • Times of Ti - 15

Lake George stewards report released, fight against invasives ongoing TICONDEROGA — The Lake George Association has released a report with findings from the 2012 Lake Steward Program. Both the full report and an abridged ‘key findings’ version are available for download from the LGA website: Since 2008, the LGA’s lake stewards have inspected almost 25,000 boats at high traffic launches around the lake, removed over 400 aquatic invasive species samples from boats,and have educated around 60,000 boaters about invasive species spread prevention. The LGA’s 2012 report summarizes the data collected last year, and includes the number of boats inspected, the total number of animal and plant samples removed, the identity and quantity of invasive species found, and the most recent waterbody boats visited within two weeks prior to launching in Lake George. The data gathered helps define how invasive species are spread, and the pathways that exist between other regional waterways and Lake George. The program seeks to protect the Lake from the introduction and spread of invasive species that could negatively alter the Lake’s ecosystem, shoreline property values, and the region’s tourism-driven economy. “Data collected by our lake stewards has been instrumental in moving Lake George forward with aquatic invasive species spread prevention efforts,” said Walt Lender of Ticonderoga, executive director of the LGA. “We are pleased that we can provide the lake steward program data for the Lake George community that clearly demonstrates the threat to the lake from the spread of AIS on trailered boats. We don’t have to just rely on scholarly articles or findings from other lakes and states. We have five years of data from our own Lake that shows the constant pressure of AIS knocking on our door year after year. We have the data we need; now we need a solid plan that gets serious about AIS spread prevention.” In 2012, Lake Stewards were posted at five launches around Lake George — Dunham’s Bay, Hague town launch, Mossy Point,

Norowal Marina and Rogers Rock. Stewards inspected 6,972 boats and interacted with 17,954 boaters. The total number of waterbodies visited within two weeks of overland transport to Lake George was 155 unique waterbodies located in 13 different states throughout the United States and 2 Provinces in Canada. Other than Lake George itself, the next most frequently visited waterbody in 2012 was Lake Champlain, a waterbody known to have 49 nonnative species. 96 boats inspected by the lake stewards had been in Lake Champlain within two weeks prior to launching in Lake George. Lake stewards collected 272 aquatic organism samples from 189 boats and trailers, and identified 131 samples to be an invasive species. Six different invasive species were identified — Eurasian watermilfoil, curly-leaf pondweed, water chestnut, zebra mussels, quagga mussels and spiny water flea. While 83 percent of boaters reported having previous interaction with a lake steward, only 63 percent of boaters reported taking at least one spread prevention measure. Spread prevention measures include but are not limited to washing the boat, draining the bilge and inspecting the boat for plants and animals. Last year was the first time the lake stewards found both quagga mussels and spiny water fleas. Quagga mussels were removed from two boats on separate occasions about to launch into Lake George. One boat had last been in Cayuga Lake, and the other in Lake Ontario. Both of those lakes are known to have established quagga mussel infestations. Spiny water flea was confirmed in Lake George in 2012 when an angler brought a sample to the lake steward stationed at Mossy Point. During the late summer, lake stewards found SWF on fishing gear on boats leaving Lake George multiple times. “The stewards inspect boats leaving the lake as well as boats about the launch,” said Kristen Rohne, LGA’s watershed educator and the lake steward program manager.

“While our priority might be protecting Lake George, we also recognize the fact that Lake George has AIS that might infect other area waterways, and we try to help prevent the spread of AIS out of the lake as much as we can as well as stop more from coming in.” Lake George is just one of many Adirondack lakes battling aquatic invasive species. The LGA is an active participant on the Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program’s Aquatic Invasive Species Committee. Since New York doesn’t have a coordinated statewide program like many other states, partners in the Adirondacks have been coordinating amongst themselves for years, to do what they can to protect Adirondack waterways. “We all try to share resources and help each other out the best we can. We also collaborate with the other lakes that are close by, such as Schroon Lake and Brant Lake, who are also trying to protect their lakes from AIS with lake steward programs,” said Emily DeBolt, the LGA’s director of education and the lake steward program coordina-

tor. “We are all trying to do the most we can with the resources we have available. We know that spread prevention is more effective than management. Once a new AIS gets into a lake, it is extremely costly to manage and eradication is unlikely. Asian clam has recently reminded us all of that here in Lake George. I’d say at this point we literally can’t afford to get another new invasive species in the lake.” “We’re very proud of our lake stewards. They do a remarkable job protecting Lake George. It’s a very effective program and it plays a critical role in spread prevention, but the stewards can’t see every invasive species,” said Lender. “We’ll have the stewards back out there to start the 2013 boating season. Additional new funding from the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation and the Lake George Park Commission will help us expand the program. As long as we can find funding, we will continue to provide the program until the LGPC can establish a mandatory program.”

TEACH CHILDREN THEIR RIGHTS. When children are taught they are special and have the right to be safe, they are less likely to think abuse is their fault, and more likely to report an offender. KNOW WHAT CHILD ABUSE IS. Physical and sexual abuse clearly constitute maltreatment, but so does neglect, or the failure of parents or other caregivers to provide a child with needed food, clothing, and care. Children can also be emotionally abused when they are rejected, berated, or continuously isolated.

KNOW THE SIGNS. Unexplained injuries aren’t the only signs of abuse. Depression, fear of a certain adult, difficulty trusting others or making friends, sudden changes in eating or sleeping patterns, inappropriate sexual behavior, poor hygiene, secrecy, and hostility are often signs of family problems and may indicate a child is being neglected or physically, sexually, or emotionally abused.

The impact of child maltreatment can be profound. Research shows that child maltreatment is associated with adverse health and mental health outcomes in chidren and families, and those negative affects can last a lifetime. In addition to the impact on the child, child abuse and neglect affect various systems - including physical and mental health, law enforcement, judicial and public social services, and nonprofit agencies as they respond to the incident and support the victim. One analysis of the immediate and long-term economic impact of child abuse and neglect suggests that child maltreatment costs the nation as much as $258 million each day, or approximately $94 billion each year.

WESTPORT — Essex County SWCD provides trees for purchase to complete conservation planting projects on Arbor Day. The Essex County Soil and Water Conservation District has provided trees for county residents to purchase to protect local natural resources. Trees and Shrubs have been purchased for wildlife habitat, windbreaks, living snow fence, and to protect water quality by preventing erosion and filtering nutrients around Lake Champlain. Local residents have placed orders for the trees through a program that started in January. On April 19 those residents will be picking trees up from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. in Floral Hall at the Essex County Fairgrounds in Westport. There will be a limited supply of extra trees and shrubs for anyone that has not placed an order. Residents can call the office at 962-8225 for availability or stop on April 19 to see what is left.

A warm heart for cold weather

n recent weeks, I’ve been seeing a lot of sign of animals on the move. A vixen red fox has established a den in our back yard, much to the consternation of our German Shorthaired Pointer who can’t seem to mark his territory fast enough. I swear he has lost 20 pounds in water weight in just the past week, and every morning he repeats the ritual. The fox leaves a slightly skunk smelling scent, and her straight-in-a-line paw prints have provided ample evidence of her evening hunts. So too do the scattered turkey feathers, from her most recent kill in the side yard. Obviously, the poor lonely mother didn’t have a chance to return to her kill for scraps before an “unpleasant of ravens” descended upon the carcass to scavenge the turkey down to nothing more than feet, bones and a beak. The slow transition from winter to spring is finally beginning to accelerate. Last weekend, the Harley riders were out with the throaty roar of their bikes echoing off the hills. Surprisingly, there were also a few packs of bicyclists daring to travel the sandy edges of the busy local highways. It appears spring puts everyone and everything on the move. Canada geese can be already be found on the Lake Flower in Saranac Lake, and bald eagles are regularly observed up and down the shores of Lake Champlain. Birders are busy, counting off the growing flux of daily arrivals, whether it is a red winged blackbird in the marsh or a loon sighting on the ponds. While on a quick jaunt into camp over the weekend, there were plenty of deer trails in the meager snow cover, as well as evidence of a fair share of fisher wanderings. Down by the stream, an otter slide appeared well used, and ducks had been on the open waters for well over a week. The sweet scent of maple steam has been on the air for weeks, and it recently led me to stumble upon the latest maple concoction, a sweet nip of maple whiskey. I can’t say it is something I could drink a lot of, but it did serve a purpose as winter weather returned to produce another chilly spring day. The whiskey may not have warmed me up, but after a few nips, I kind of forgot about the foul weather.

An April fool I knew it was too good to be true, but like a little kid listening for sleigh bells on Christmas Eve; I wanted to believe. I was sure it would happen again. Two years ago, most Adirondack ponds had shed their icy hardtop by April 8. Then, in 2012, I enjoyed a leisurely troll around my favorite backwoods trout pond on April 1. But like Lucy pulling the football away before poor old Charlie Brown could kick it, spring had failed to be sprung, and on April 1, there remained a 14-inch thick barrier of solid ice on the same ponds. I was again an April fool, albeit one with great hopes and high expectations. In the past few weeks, my dreams of being on the ponds for opening day had quietly dried up, even though the attendant snowpack had not diminished much. I had gone through all of the usual motions. I strung up

Outdoors • Times of Ti - 21


Tiger trout, a unique hybrid of a brook trout and a brown trout, are a very rare find in the wild. However, the strange mix is commonly stocked in ponds and reservoirs in the Catskills, where they can grow to 5-6 pounds or more. Distinguished by their odd looking, worm-like vermiculations, tigers are known as voracious predators. In recent years, there have been several naturally spawned specimens of the tiger trout taken on the Chubb River near Lake Placid. The fish in the photo is on display at The Wild Center in Tupper Lake, where many native Adirondack fish species reside inside a huge aquarium. new line on all my spinning reels, cleaned the bearings and the gears, and oiled them to perfection. The rods, which I had so carelessly stacked in the back of the garage last fall in a mad dash to transition from fishing season to hunting season, were delicately untangled. I checked them for hairline cracks, and I carefully ran my fingers over each guide to assure a smooth surface, with no nicks or burrs to fray my lines. I replaced the hooks on most of my lures, and changed all of the stock treble hooks with new, red colored, offset trebles. I even took the time to burnish the spoons with fine grit emery cloth and steel wool. It’s amazing how good they look with no rust, crud or dried weeds. After sorting through a big pile of spoons and wabblers, I used some steel wool to polish the old wabblers, Hinkleys and Suttons into a big pile of shiny bright tackle. I even tried spraying a few of the brass and copper finished spoons with a clear acrylic finish. Of course, I also left a good bit of the pile in the original condition. Fourteen inches of ice is not going to disappear overnight. What’s the rush? My old pile of maps and charts of the ponds and lakes has gradually diminished to a select few favorites that I still take along, despite the addition of a portable depth finder that now provides me with a more accurate indication of the depths and lake contours. But old habits die hard. I’ll always keep a few the old, hand-drawn maps that were scribbled on a napkin, or a piece of a brown paper bag. They are relics from the old days, when I was the youngster on the annual fishing trip, and I keep ‘em in the tackle box just to keep me fresh, to help restore the my enthusiasm for the process of preparing to get out. It’s a process I’ll repeat several times, well before I even get to wet a line. I’ll sort through the fly boxes, respool some reels with sinking flylines, and generally waste a lot of time that could be put to better use. But, there’s nothing more enjoyable than just puttering about while waiting to get out, and it is a ritual I’ll continue to pursue until the moment there are actually some fish to fill my time. As always, the rivers and streams will take a while to warm up, and a lucky few anglers will hit the jackpot with a couple of battered old battle veteran holdover trout. The picking will be slim until water temperatures on the streams gets up into the 50-degree range. The best bets will be found in deeper holding pools, where turbulent conditions pump warm air into the current, at the base of waterfalls, dams or serious rapids. Anglers must fish slow and delicate, as trout will not be aggressively chasing food. It will have to bump them in the nose. I’ll be interested to hear of any further reports of tiger trout caught in local waters. The odd hybrid is the result of a mixed breeding between brown trout and brook trout, and it usually occurs in waters that hold healthy, naturally spawned populations of each species. It appears the Chubb River, which tumbles out of the High Peaks to flow through the middle of Lake Placid village. It is one of the most productive tiger trout waters in the region. However, I’ve also received reports of tigers taken on the Little Salmon River and the St. Regis River. They are an odd looking specimen, and the only fish I ever saw was taken on the upper Chubb by a young angler who claimed he had caught “a striped fish, like a perch but it's much prettier.” At the time, I was aghast to think that a perch had somehow managed to depart Mirror Lake, which connects to the Chubb River below the old Mill Dam. Fortunately, the perch turned out to be a wild spawned, native tiger trout. I've had a few unpleasant surprises over the years while fishing for trout, and fortunately that episode was one that turned out to be quite the opposite of what it first appeared.

armers have been blamed for much of the nutrient loading going into Lake Champlain. They have taken it on the chin numerous times for being polluters. Sometimes they deserved it; most times not. The reality is that all of us contribute in one way or another. Fishermen trample banks, loggers cross streams, and sedBy Rich Redman iment washes off roads and parking lots from the grit spread to control ice. And, of course, people toss waste over the banks because they don’t want to go to the dump. Nutrient runoff comes from many sources, not just farmland. Farmers, however, are doing something special to help curb the problems. Cows in streams are a natural thing, like deer drinking out of a brook. The problem is when you get 100 of them there for an extended period of time. That’s a different story. Stream banks get pounded by hooves, erosion takes place, and the manure is spread in the brook, not on the pasture where it should be. Sediment and nutrients then enter the waterway. There is a simple fix: fencing and planting vegetative buffers. Planting riparian buffers along stream banks is one of my passions, and I truly believe they are one of the easiest, cost effective and ecologically sensible things a farm can do to alleviate the problem. Riparian buffers are strips of trees and bushes planted parallel to the stream with a width of 35 feet or more. The vegetation traps sediment, absorbs nutrients and provides stability to the stream banks due to the root systems of the plants. The goal is to trap the runoff and nutrients before they enter the stream. As a guy who likes to walk streams and fly fish, one thing I love to see are lots of willows growing along streams. Willow shrubs are low growing, provide shelter for fish by overhanging the banks, have tremendous root systems to stabilize the banks and it’s a great place for terrestrial bugs, worms and other critters to live. If the buffer is managed, so the vegetation is kept in a brushy state and not overgrown with shade trees, it will also make great woodcock habitat. Buffers are also home to a variety of birds, amphibians and reptiles. Plan ahead before you plant. Think about the habitat you want to create, such as brush and grass, early successional or mature woods. What you plant and your willingness to manage will make a difference. Conservation is not just about stopping nutrients from getting to Lake Champlain; it’s putting all the ecological and economic pieces in place to make it work for the landowner, wildlife and the stream inhabitants. Not only is it good for the stream and lake, it must be easy on the landowner ’s wallet. Conservation needs to be low cost and high in benefits. Many farmers in the Champlain Valley have installed buffers along their stream banks. The Leerkes Farm in Ticonderoga planted trees and shrubbery a few years ago to protect the banks of their previously pastured stream. Shaun Gilliland in Willsboro will be planting a variety of fruit trees, berry bushes and other plants. This will provide an alternative income in the future by selling the products like jam to supplement his beef operation. The rooted vegetation will provide stream protection, and the waste fruit will provide excellent food for bugs and worms, and yes, they both feed fish. The Leerkes and Gillilands are Essex County Farm Bureau members, and they lead by example. These guys realize the economics of this area depends on farms, forestry and recreation like fishing and hunting. Managed habitat supports greater populations of stream life, farm and forest wildlife. What these farmers are doing is a great value to all of us, not just Lake Champlain. Although there have been incidents where farm runoff has hurt fisheries, they are few and far between. Most streams may actually benefit from some nutrients, but that’s another story. One simple trick all of us “streamwalkers” can do is to take 2-foot cuttings from the growing willows and push them half way into the soft moist mud in the sunny bare spots along the banks. This bio-engineering technique doesn’t hurt the host plant, will allow more willows to spread, provides overhanging fish habitat and keep the banks from eroding. The other great benefit: it doesn’t cost the taxpayer a penny, and that in itself is a miracle of biblical proportions now days.
