Dunkin’ Donuts set to reopen

S A T U R D A Y , A P R I L 21, 2 01 2




By John Gereau

International Paper names new mill manager. TICONDEROGA — The Dunkin’ Donuts location that has been vacant since April 2008 will soon reopen under new ownership. Work has already begun inside and outside the Wicker Street store. New owner Greg Sagris and his business partners, Frank and Ari Souliotis, hope to have the facility open for business by May 20, the weekend before Memorial Day. Alex Shmulsky, a Ticonderoga attorney representing the owners, said the partners have extensive experience operating Dunkin’ Donuts franchises. The trio own and operate 11 other stores, nine of which are in Vermont and two of which are in New Hampshire. Shmulsky said he helped draw up the paperwork to form the Ticonderoga Dunkin’ Donuts LLC and said Sagris and Frank and Ari Souliotis are excited to be opening a store in Ti. “America runs on Dunkin’ and now so does Ticonderoga,” Shmulsky said.

Intellects shine in Adirondack Torch Club By Tim Follos TICONDEROGA — It’s no surprise: The retired librarian writes beautifully. Virginia LaPointe, the longtime librarian at Ticonderoga High School, gave a spellbinding reading of her article “The Haunted Major” to the local Torch Club last week.

“The Haunted Major” vividly recounts the troubled tale of a man present at Lincoln’s assassination, Henry Rathbone, who subsequently declined into madness and murder. LaPointe said she was initially drawn to the story by a work of historical fiction, “Henry and Clara,” by Thomas Mallon and that she consulted about a half dozen sources, including newspapers from the time and recent magazine articles, while

writing her paper. LaPointe said she was so interested in the project that she stayed up working on it until 4 a.m. some nights and revised it until just before her presentation. It showed. “Years ago they used to carry torches when they wanted attention,” notes longtime Torch Club member Iris Civilier in response to a question about the organization’s

We little knew that morning, God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly, In death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, You did not go alone, For part of us went with you, the day God called you home. You left us beautiful memories, Your love is still our guide And though we cannot see you, You are always by our side. Our family chain is broken And nothing seems the same But as God calls us one by one The chain will link again.

TICONDEROGA — The Ticonderoga Festival Guild will present the Curbstone Chorus of Rutland in concert on Sunday, April 29, at 3 p.m. at the Best Western Inn and Suites on Burgoyne Road in Ticonderoga. This is the group’s second appearance in Ticonderoga. They were featured on the summer concert program under the guild tent several years ago. Tickets are $10 a person with a special rate of $5 for students. When Dan Graves scheduled a rehearsal for a new male chorus in Rutland, 24 men showed up in response to the newspaper article. They came back week after week and brought friends and co-workers. Today the Curbstone Chorus is made up of men from more than 13 towns within driving distance of Rutland. From many different disparate professions, the members are joined by the passion for singing barbershop harmony and sharing their music with others. They perform in various venues throughout the area. In 2007, the chorus became a chapter in the International Barbershop Harmony Society. More information about the group is available at The Festival Guild has been presenting the performing arts in the Ticonderoga area for 33 years. This year, the children’s series, Arts Trek, is celebrating its 30th birthday. The children’s programs will continue to be presented on Wednesday mornings from July 11 to Aug. 15, with a special party on July 3, at 10:15 a.m. Only three summer Tuesday evening programs are on the 2012 schedule, and special concerts are being scheduled at other times. This Curbstone Chorus event is the first. For more information, contact the guild at 5857015

International Paper names new mill manager in a press release. “The Ti team is delivering excellent results in safety, environmental performance, quality, customer satisfaction and operational excellence. I am excited about our future.” Mallon replaces Kirk Carlson, who served as International Paper ’s manager at the Ticonderoga mill on 568 Shore-Airport Road since 2009. Carlson is now the operations manager of IP’s mill in Savannah, Ga. Mallon began work at IP on April 2, working with Carlson for a brief transition period. On April 4, Carlson left for his new position.

Former manager transferred to Georgia By Katherine Clark TICONDEROGA — Former Ticonderoga International Paper Mill manager Chris Mallon is back on the job. “I am delighted to be back home and to have the opportunity to work with the great team at the Ticonderoga mill,” Mallon stated

“Chris has brought exceptional manufacturing experience and knowledge to the Augusta Mill,” stated Kirt Cuevas, vice president of printing and communications. “His leadership and commitment to developing solid work systems have laid the foundation for future success. We have great confidence in Chris' leadership and look forward to working with him as he leads the Ticonderoga mill once again.” Mallon began his career with IP in 1982 at the former Oswego mill, and in 1994 he became manager of the mill. In 1996 he moved to the

former Erie, Pa. mill where he held positions that included finished products manager, operations manager and mill manager. He was named the manager of the Ticonderoga mill in 2002. He held that job for seven years before becoming the manager of the Augusta, Ga. mill in 2009. “Ticonderoga Mill team extends their appreciation to Kirk and we wish him well in his new position in Georgia,” said Donna Wadsworth, the communications manager of the Ticonderoga plant.

CWICNY members provide free teacher workshop TICONDEROGA — Member organizations of the Champlain Watershed Improvement Coalition of New York (CWICNY) provided a free teacher workshop for third through fifth grade teachers on March 27 at the Ticonderoga Town Hall. Staff at the Lake Champlain – Lake George Regional Planning Board (LCLGRPB), Lake George Association (LGA) and Essex County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) organized and performed the Project WET workshop, which provided the participating schools with a “Treasure Chest” filled with $150 worth of teaching materials for their classrooms. Funding for the workshop and Treasure Chests was provided by International Paper. Project WET (Water Education for Teachers) is a nationally syndicated program that helps integrate fun, innovative, hand-on activities into existing science and math curriculums. Developed by the Project WET Foundation, the Project WET Activity and Curriculum Guide helps educators illustrate an array of water quality concepts, including the physical and chemical characteristics of water, the connection of water to the Earth systems, how water resources are managed and how water resources exist within social constructs. “It’s important to us to provide our teachers with a fresh approach to convey important water quality issues,” said Beth Gilles of the LCLGRPB and President of CWICNY. “What makes our workshops so special is we provide the teachers with the supplies they need to perform five of the Project WET

activities in their classroom, so they don’t need to spend money out of their own budgets to do these activities with their students.” Educators from Essex, Hamilton, Saratoga and Warren Counties attended the free, all day workshop, where they were shown how to use the Activity Guide and the materials provided in their Treasure Chests. The supplies provided are for activities that present the concepts of the water cycle, adhesion and cohesion of water molecules, stormwater pollution, water usage and the effects of water pollution on aquatic plants and animals. “Project WET is a great way for teachers to bring water quality education into the classroom. In-class activities from Project WET can stand alone as lessons, or can be used by our area teachers as great pre-field trip lessons for classes before they come for a field trip on our Floating Classroom program,” said Emily DeBolt, Director of Education at the LGA. “We were very pleased to be able to work with our regional partners to be able to offer this great opportunity for teachers in the Lake George watershed as well as the rest of the region.” The LCLGRPB, LGA and Essex County SWCD have provided several Project WET trainings for area teachers, and will continue to do so as funding is available. To inquire about an upcoming training contact Beth Gilles at (518) 668-5773 or

Participating teachers perform the Stormwater Activity from the Project WET Activity and Curriculum Guide with Tiffany Pinheiro of the Essex County SWCD. Each school was provided with these materials for their classrooms.

Online historic newspapers an asset


or years, loyal readers, researchers and editorial staffers have yearned to flip through back issues of the various papers owned by Denton Publications, whether they want information from two years in the past, 20 years ago or all the way back in the 1800s. Well, we have some good news. We recently signed an agreement with the Potsdam-based Northern New York Library Network to have News Enterprise issues from 1924 to the present digitized and placed on a searchable website. We will soon be part of the Northern New York Historical Newspapers project, located online at The Northern New York Library Network is a consortium of public, academic and specialized libraries chartered to improve library service for North Country residents. It has a long history of newspaper preservation, including preservation microfilming in the 1980s and local coordination of the New York State Newspaper Project in the 1990s. In 2004, the network launched Northern New York Historical Newspapers to enhance access to the region’s local history. Serving seven counties — Essex, Franklin, Clinton, St. Lawrence, Lewis, Jefferson and Oswego — the online collection now contains almost 2.3 million pages from 52 newspapers. The newspapers span more than 200 years. The oldest issues on the website come from the Plattsburgh Republican and date from 1811, three years before the famed Battle of Plattsburgh during the War of 1812. In the April 12, 1811 issue, we find out who has mail left at the post office, who died that week, who got married, who wrote letters to the editor, and which state senators’ seats needed to be filled during the lieutenant governor ’s election. For the history buff, the genealogy hobbyist and the serious researcher, Northern New York Historical Newspapers is a treasure trove of information. People can easily get mesmerized by the volumes of stories here. Time flies when you are having fun learning about local history. The process of digitizing the News Enterprise from 1924 to the present will be routine. The Adirondack Museum’s librarian has graciously given us permission to use their microfilm copies of

the paper and will loan them to the NNYLN. The microfilm will be scanned, and the images will be run through optical character recognition (OCR) software and be indexed. The indexed images will then be placed on the Network’s web server, interfaced with a search engine and made available to the public over the Internet. When we began researching this project in February, we didn’t know how much the digitization project would cost or where we would put the issues online. After all, the Northern New York Historical Newspapers project does not serve most of the News Enterprise’s readership: the Warren County town of Johnsburg and the Hamilton County towns of Indian Lake and Long Lake. Luckily, our paper serves the Essex County towns of Minerva and Newcomb, so we were welcomed into the Network’s family. And, because we are part of the family, digitizing the News Enterprise will be free for us. We can’t thank the Network and the Adirondack Museum enough for their generosity. We’re not sure when the back issues of the News Enterprise will be available online, but we’re hoping it will be sometime in 2012. We hope to get even more historic newspapers online in the future. Other newspapers in the Denton lineage currently available on Northern New York Newspapers are the Ticonderoga Sentinel (forefather of the Times of Ti), the Rouses Point North Countryman (forefather of the North Countryman) and the Essex County Republican (forefather of the Valley News). Our history is there: “This issue of the Essex County Republican begins a new chapter in this paper ’s long and distinguished career of service to its many North Country readers,” began the May 10, 1968 issue of the Essex County Republican, announcing that Denton Publications had acquired the Essex County Republican.

Letters to the Editor

School insurance cost To the Times of Ti: There was a great article in the Post-Star last week concerning school employees insurance. Everything I’m about to say is stated in the article. Teacher ’s health insurance premiums are going up 12 percent this year. There are 2 plans employees can purchase. The most expensive one will cost $21,828 yearly for a family’s coverage. The other one costs $18,300 yearly for a family’s coverage. Of course the employees only pay 10 percent of that, the rest comes out of Our budget. Last year we paid 2.9 million for health insurance and now it’s going up 12 percent. The article stated what some other school districts employees pay for their insurance. Glens Falls teachers: 16.5 percent. Queensbury teachers: 12 percent. Warrensburg 10 percent South Glens Falls 11 percent to 20 percent depending when they were hired. New York state public employee’s federation is up to 31 percent. The private sector average is 25 percent. Districts are being forced to negotiate higher employee contributions to help offset escalating insurance cost. We need to do the same thing. Our teacher ’s contract was up this year so it was a great opportunity for our board to address insurance premiums contribution and salary increases over the next 4 years. What did they do? They extended the current contract for 2 more years with a 2.8 percent increase in salaries. Why would they do that knowing this year was going to be a very challenging budget year? I have asked them that now for the third time. So far no answer! My opinion is we have a very pro teacher/employee board. Most all of them have relatives working for the school. This is acceptable according to the New York school laws, but the perception can be questionable. My perception is that if a board member has a relative working in the school system their opinions and/or votes are going to be pro relative for obvious reasons. My advice to you is, that in the future do not vote in board members who have relative working the school district. Our board have bigger fish to fry than representing their constituents and being stewards of our hard earned money. Tough words, yes, and my opinion from what I see happening. Our teachers are getting wealthy by the actions or lack of action from our pro teacher board while we keep getting burdened with ever increasing taxes. How insulting it is to have our board say they will have to make cuts hurting the students to reduce the budget. They have increased costs for years with increasing budgets (mostly salaries and insurance) during decreasing student counts. They got us here and they are failing at insuring our students receive the best education and the lowest cost. Their pro teacher actions are hurting the kids!! Wake up Ticonderoga.

Holding On and Letting Go


t was my daughter’s birthday this week and while she lives in another state, I spoke with her at some length on the telephone. Though it was not spoken, I sensed that she did not want to hang up any more than I By Scot Hurlburt did. Though there were pregnant pauses and uncomfortable gaps, the conversation ended with “I love you.” I later realized that perhaps we had reached yet another relationship destination, one of many that have occurred along the way. As parents, it is a curious paradox in that we bond with our children through their dependence on us but at the same time we encourage and hope that they are becoming their own person, capable of taking care of themselves and ultimately finding their way in the world on their own. My daughter arrived in the world easily, a very short labor and there she was. At home, it soon became a ritual to look at a book or rock in a chair and then I would play a song accompanied with my guitar,putting her to sleep right away. As I found myself having to attend conferences for several days at a time for work I made tapes so she could hear me sing before bed. She could not go to sleep easily without hearing me sing. I did not know how special that need made me feel until one day, she didn’t want me to sing to her at night anymore. Ah, the paradox, she was making her own decision about a bedtime ritual, a first destination; letting go. Being an only child meant that just about every weekend, we had one or more extra girls with us. At first, games included adults but not for long, her friends became her focus. It was a fabulous time and the many young girls that came to visit greatly enriched our lives with many unforgettable and memorable moments. The house was filled with sounds of children running, laughing and singing. They made themselves up in makeup and made short videos that they then watched. I was invited to watch for a while, over time that invitation was relinquished; letting go. I frequently drove my daughter to school and one day when she was in fourth grade, just before we arrived at school she told me that if I wanted to hug her and kiss her, I should do it now before arriving at school. Those few, benign words slammed in to me like a howling freight train. I stopped at the stop sign and reached over for a kiss on the cheek and hoped she wouldn’t see how hard it had hit me. I remember calling a friend and doing something that I had not done in twenty years. I cried that day and forever after I was transformed by that event into someone that cried, almost a stranger to myself in this regard. It was a new destination for me and my daughter. Never a fan of gushy movies, I sat teary eyed as Johnny so famously said; “Nobody puts Baby in a corner.” And so I strangely became a fan of the chick flick and I watched with my daughter and her friends the many tear jerking films that I had never seen before or even knew existed. At one point I found myself needing to gain my composure at a movie theatre while my daughter walked by chuckling. I don’t think she understood then, nor did I, just how much fatherhood had changed me; a new destination. I had to learn to let her suffer her hurts though they probably injured me nearly as much as they did her. I celebrated her triumphs but more and more at a distance; letting go. Still there were times, even as a teenager, that she laid her head on my lap and fell asleep while I stroked her hair and listened to her deep slow breathing as I had so alertly done when she was a baby. I was holding on again and she was holding me, too. To this day, though she is an adult, she sometimes sits on my knee and snuggles her head in against my neck and it is a brief, transcendent moment where I am young, she is a baby and that feeling of completeness that is so fleeting, washes over me. As a parent, holding on and letting go is a walk that we make every day. We wonder if they are happy and safe just as we did when they were children. While our children leave us, some may be a world away, still, they are in our hearts and those are memories that we will always hold on to. Remember, all kids count. Reach the writer at

Stop marketing to kids To the Times of Ti: In 1998, the Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement with the tobacco companies was enacted. This settlement severely limited tobacco advertising and restricted tobacco companies from utilizing billboard and transit advertising. Additionally, they could no longer target underage youth with print advertising. This meant that the tobacco companies would have to be creative with the manner in which they advertised toward adolescents and young adults, which is the group that is most susceptible to product marketing. Youth are now targeted through Point of Sale advertising, when tobacco products are highly visible where other items are purchased, such as by the registers in convenience and grocery stores and pharmacies. Research shows that kids who shop at stores with tobacco marketing two or more times a week are 64 percent more likely to start smoking than their peers who don’t. By covering up tobacco products at these locations, other countries have been able to boast significant dccrcascs in youth smoking rates. The New York State Tobacco Control Program has launched a new media campaign that plainly states that our kids have seen enough. They are bombarded with tobacco marketing every time they shop at the stores that prominently display tobacco products. It is time to change as 22,500 NYS children under the age of 18 become new daily smokers each year. Help lower youth smoking rates by supporting changes to reduce youth exposure to in-store tobacco marketing. To View and support our new tobacco marketing campaign visit Encourage children to speak up and say that they have seen enough. Jill Rock Adirondack Tobacco Free Network

Best Fourth In The North Committee merges with the TMSP TICONDEROGA — The Ticonderoga Best Fourth In The North Committee which is dedicated to providing area residents and visitors with the best 4th of July experience in the North Country has recently joined forces with the Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership (TMSP). The Best Fourth In The North Committee has been approved by the TMSP Board of Directors and is now a sub- committee of the TMSP. In the past the Best Fourth in the North was a Town of Ticonderoga committee but recently certain legal/regulation and liability issues have arisen which were problematic. This made it advantageous for the Best Fourth committee to align forces with and work though of a local not-forprofit organization. “Having the Best Fourth In The North Committee become a sub-committee of the Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership just made sense. The event which draws many visitors into downtown Ticonderoga every year and has its events focused around Montcalm Street and Bicentennial Park. It truly is a win-win for both groups. We are excited to be working with this committee to continue to serve both downtown and Ticonderoga and to provide residents and visitors the Best Fourth In

The North Celebration,” stated John Bartlett – TMSP Chairperson. The celebration each year does cost between $25,000-$30,000 which includes the parade, bands for the parade, bands, entertainment, carnival and vendors in Bicentennial Park as well as the magnificent fireworks display. The Town of Ticonderoga does provide support for the 4th of July celebration, but much of the funding is raised through the work of the Best Fourth in the North committee. All donations now made to the Best Fourth in the North Celebration will be tax deductible as the Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership is a not-for-profit 501(c) (3) organization. “We will continue to work hard to provide a wonderful Fourth of July celebration for the community and area visitors. We are thrilled to have found a home with the Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership who welcomed the committee with open arms. We look forward to working closely with the TMSP. We want to thank the Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership Board Members for their support of the Best Fourth In The North Committee and ensuring that this time honored celebration and tradition in Ticonderoga continues,” stated Debbie Barber – Best Fourth In The North Committee Chair. All donations from community members, visitors, and area businesses are Denton Publications, Inc. We’re more than a newspaper, We’re a community service. always very much appreciated and help greatly to make this event possible In addition, the Best Fourth In The North Committee is looking for volunteers to serve on the planning committee, volunteer for fundraisers, and during the four day celebration. Currently the committee has just between 5-7 people working to make the multi-day celebration a success. The Best Fourth in the North Celebra-

Sentencing postponed in horse neglect case By Katherine Clark TICONDEROGA — The sentencing of Ticonderoga man Bruce Crammond for animal cruelty has been postponed to April 27. Crammond, 64, of Racetrack Road, Ticonderoga was convicted in February of misdemeanor injuring animals and failure to provide proper sustenance for an animal, a violation of the State Agriculture and Markets Law, aka Animal Cruelty, according to District Attorney Kristy Sprague. The charges could carry a sentence of up to one year in jail and up to three years probation, according to Sprague. Along with probation the upcoming court hearing will determine how restitution will be paid for the care of the horse over the course of the two-year investigation. On May 19, 2010, Ticonderoga Police went to Crammond’s property and found the more than 20-year-old horse with a threeinch-diameter bullet wound to the withers section in the back of its neck. The horse was about 800 pounds underweight. According to Sprague, Crammond has been charged

with shooting the horse. On April 4, Town Justice James O'Bryan postponed Crammond's sentencing until April 27. A restitution hearing will determine if Crammond should pay for the horse’s care during its time at Crane Mountain Valley Horse Rescue in Westport, where it has remained since being seized from Crammond by police. O’Bryan said sentencing will follow the restitution hearing if no other issues arise in the case. The case first broke in May of 2010, when the Belgian draft horse, now called Pops, was found by authorities, suffering from both the gunshot wound and starvation. Crammond is represented by Attorney David Scaglione of Willsboro, while Essex County Assistant District Attorney Allison McGahay is handling to case for the District Attorney’s Office.

Restitution Nancy Van Weie, owner and operator of CMVHR, said that over the past two years the rescue has paid for Pops’ care. “For the veterinary care, feed, dental care and all the things Pops has needed we have spent over $10,000 the last two years,” Van Weie said. Van Weie said that at the time Pops was brought to CMVHR, they were told the ex-

penses for the horse’s care would be taken care of by the Ticonderoga Police Department. The amount of restitution and if Crammond will be held responsible for the reimbursement will be decided on April 27. Most of the costs have been associated with feeding the horse and helping it maintain a healthy weight, Van Weie said. After two years, Pops has regained a healthy weight of 1,400 lbs. and the once- maggot-andpuss-encrusted gunshotwound is now a faint scar.

mained open and his care and recovery have not been supported by the state. Van Weie hopes that when the case is closed Pops will finally find a permanent home. “Since he has come here he has really opened up. He’s such a sweet, loving, beautiful boy who deserves a great home. Hopefully someone will want to give him that,” Van Weie said.

Inter-Lakes Health participates in regional drill TICONDEROGA — On Tuesday, March 20, Inter-Lakes Health participated in a state-wide regional disaster drill sponsored by New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH). Many staff members volunteered to participate as mock victims while others carried out roles for triaging, tracking and monitoring the victims, and developing strategies and planning to direct the flow of resources for the drill. The command staff utilized the Health Emergency Response Data System (HERDS), which has been designed to allow the NYSDOH and health care systems throughout the state to identify and monitor public health incidents as they occur; to monitor regional participation and updates for the drill. The drill began at 7:05 a.m., when the National Weather Service (NWS) issued a simulated tornado warning for Franklin and Clinton Counties and a tornado watch for Essex County. At 7:39 a.m., HERDS notified the hospital that a tornado had touched down in Clinton County and advised the hospital to backup our landline communications. At 8:05 a.m. a tornado hit the Elizabethtown Hospital and created a microburst in Ticonderoga that destroyed a portion of the Ticonderoga High School. At 8:45am, Moses Ludington Hospital was notified by

EMS that mock patients would arrive at the hospital within 5 minutes. “As a whole our facility did an outstanding job with the drill” says Tara Joubert, Director of Support Service. “We were able to exceed the states expectation by not only testing our Facility Surge Plan by setting up a secondary triage, but completing a hospital evacuation, and receiving of mock patients from Elizabethtown County Hospital. Based on our current census, we were able to "evacuate" 2 mock swing-bed patients from the Patient Care Unit to the Nursing Home in order to accommodate the 6 mock patients we were receiving due to the facility damage incurred by the tornado in Elizabethtown.” Staff members utilized the hospital’s emergency cellular phones as a means of communication with each other and northern hospitals and local health departments during the drill. Communications were tested on these phones and 2-way radios to test their efficiency and effectiveness for use during a live disaster. In total, we had 5 priority 1 (immediate) victims, 4 priority 2 (stable) victims, and 6 priority 3 (walking wounded) victims. Of those triaged, 3 were airlifted to Fletcher Allen, 3 were discharged, 1 deceased and 8 admitted to the Patient

For those staff members who were unable to attend the drill or whose job tasks did not allow them to participate, drill attendees agreed that it would be beneficial to

hold mini drills that are department centralized throughout the year so staff may become more familiar with our procedures during an emergency incident. When it comes to disaster preparedness, there are

no small roles or a staff member without essential qualities to contribute. Inter-Lakes Health will receive $15,500 in grant funding for completing the drill.

Ti author Jodi Auborn publishes second book TICONDEROGA — Ticonderoga author, Jodi Auborn, recently had her third book published: Secrets of the North Country: The Hobo’s Story. It is the sequel to her first novel, Stormwind of the North Country, published in 2009. “Like Stormwind of the North Country, I had begun writing “Secrets” when I was much younger. When I was in high school in the early 1990’s, an inmate escaped from a nearby prison. The police suspected that he was living in the area forests, surviving off the land. The news reports about him really sparked my imagination. I began writing a story about Jake, one of the characters from “Stormwind,” who was wrongfully accused of a crime and becomes a fugitive running from the law. However, unlike the escaped convict who inspired the story, Jake is an innocent man who was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.” 37160 Secrets of the North CounJodi Auborn try takes place in the fictional Adirondack town of Sprucewood, NY.

on April 16, Sagris said extensive renovations are currently taking place there. “We are renovating everything except the floor,” Sagris said, noting the distinctive fireplace and drive-through window will remain. The store will also include a television and will provide wireless Internet to customers, he said. A self-made entrepreneur, Sagris offers an interesting success story with Dunkin’ Donuts. He began working at a Vermont store at just 14-years-old. Today, at 27, he is opening his twelfth store. “I am very, very familiar with the brand,” Sagris said. “I have owned my own stores for four years now.” The Ticonderoga Dunkin’ Donuts will hire between 25 and 30 full and part-time employees. Sagris hopes to have applications available at the store in early May, once renovations are complete. The hours of operation will be 5 a.m. to 11 p.m., seven days a week. Ticonderoga Supervisor Deb Malaney was equally enthused about the store re-opening, saying it has been vacant next to the Subway restaurant for far too long. “I was delighted to hear that the building would be back in use, and be another viable business in town, ”Malaney said. “That is always good news in these rural upstate communities.” Matt Courtright, executive director of the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce, said the new owners of Dunkin’ Donuts are also the newest members of the local chamber. “I met with two of the new owners last week,” Courtright said. “They are very kind, energetic, and truly want to be part of the community. They plan to be involved in many ways with the Chamber and the community as a whole.” Courtright said Sagris and Frank and Ari Souliotis have already shown their commitment to the community by hiring local tradesmen to make improvements to the property and building. “In addition to getting the building back online with the assistance of Champlain Valley Heating & Plumbing and others they are working on landscaping plans with DeFranco Landscaping to create a beautiful and welcoming atmosphere,” Courtright said. “This is one of the first buildings you see as you enter Ticonderoga, and we are excited that it will be coming back to life.” Sagris was quick to praise both the people of Ticonderoga and the Ti Chamber for being so welcoming. “This is just such an unbelievable community,” he said. “And the chamber has been one of the most welcoming I’ve

shines the light of erudition on our corner of the world. “It was formed to give people a chance to come and continue learning. It’s for anybody who wants to come and learn new things,” said Stan Burdick, the club’s founder. “Every month a speaker talks about an interesting subject. We learn things about people who are well known from the past — an

author, politician, whatever. Sometimes it moves into geography — learning more about certain areas of the world. Sometimes it’s cultural — learning more about different countries and how they live and how they feel about things.” Torch meetings begin with a fellowship period at 5:30 p.m. Dinner is served around 6 p.m., and is followed by a presentation and a question and answer period. Meetings attract a diverse group united by a desire to enjoy each other ’s company and learn from each other. Over a recent Adirondack Torch Club dinner, members enjoyed an engrossing, wideranging conversation. Topics discussed included Arto Monaco, employment law, the relative merits of the monuments in Washington, D.C., and the evolution of American racial relations. “I enjoy the fellowship, the friendship, the mental stimulation,” said LaPointe. “It’s a reason to get together and share information. It’s an outing. Hopefully it will attract some younger people. It’s always nice to rub elbows with other generations.” The local Torch Club has existed for more than 10 years and meets on the first Thursday of every month. It is a chapter of a network of similar groups throughout the U.S. and Canada. According to there are six other Torch clubs active in New York State. Adirondack Torch Club President Carol Gregson plans to represent the local chapter at a national convention in Virginia this June. Gregson is the author of the book “Leaky Boots,” a humorous memoir about life in the Adirondacks. Torch Club compiles exceptional papers from the farflung local groups and publishes them in a quarterly magazine. The winter 2011-2012 issue includes articles on Reinhold Niebuhr, Ernest Hemingway and the ancient Greek thinker Diogenes. The articles include bibliographies. Next month the Ticonderoga-based local chapter will reconvene at its longtime summer home: Emerald’s Restaurant at the Ticonderoga Country Club. “We like to say that we’re an area organization,” said Burdick. “We have people from Adirondac, Olmst-

ris Civilier, a lifelong admirer of Eleanor Roosevelt, discussed the former first lady’s merits when she addressed the club. “I’m old — I can remember Eleanor Roosevelt when she was married to Franklin D. Roosevelt, and when he was our governor and our president,” Civilier recounted in a recent phone interview with Times of Ti. “I grew up in Lake Placid and he was there a couple of times. He had polio and he didn’t want anyone to know he was crippled. He came by train to the Lake Placid railroad station, which is still there.” “I couldn’t see him, so I ran around to the other side of the platform. I was in the back, and no one else was there.” “As I stood there I realized two men were holding him up — and he would move his feet so that it looked just like he was walking on the platform, but I could see that his feet never once hit the floor, and I went home and said, ‘He can’t walk!’ And they said, ‘Don’t you ever tell anyone that, Iris!’” “It wasn’t until the end of his third term that it came out how crippled he was.I really admired all that Eleanor Roosevelt did, and it was terrible what they said about her. They said she was always leaving him alone. I always read everything she wrote, and after he died she said that she went on all those trips because he couldn’t go.” edville, Putnam, Hague, Crown Point. It’s a wide area that we cover, and whatever education they have, we don’t care: Anybody who wants to come and learn about new things is welcome.” “Each one of our members has a chance to speak at one of our meetings. There are about 20 of us. That gives people a chance to talk about their favorite subjects. I did one on the origin of square dancing, which is one of my favorite subjects,” Burdick said. A square dance caller and historian, Burdick has called more than 5,000 dances, working dances in every state and in 20 countries over the course of 60 years. With his wife, Cathie, Burdick published a square dance magazine for 23 years. When asked about his favorite recent speakers, Burdick cited Fort Ticonderoga's Director of Education Rich Strum’s “History of Christmas in New England from 16501900.” For more information about the Adirondack Torch Club, call Burdick at 585-7015 or Civilier at 532-9329. — Fred Herbst contributed to this article

Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union to host homebuying seminar April 26 TICONDEROGA — The Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union will host a First-Time Homebuyers Seminar Thursday, April 26, at 6:30 p.m. at the Ticonderoga High School Superintendent’s Conference Room, 5 Calkins Place (Amherst Avenue entrance). There is no charge for the program. Space is limited, and pre-registration for the free seminar is required. Contact TFCU at 585-6725 or visit online at to register or to speak with a TFCU loan expert. TFCU recently expanded its line of mortgage products to better serve their membership and community. The expanded line is offered through their partnership with Homeowners Advantage, a credit union industry-owned organization which specializes in mortgage services for credit union

members. Ticonderoga Federal Credit Union’s product line now includes USDA Guaranteed Loans, FHA Loans, VA Loans and conventional fixed and adjustable rate P\products. “The addition of low down payment government loans is a huge benefit to our members,” said Karen Bennett, TFCU director of lending. The USDA loan requires no down payment and does not call for monthly mortgage insurance. The FHA loan also features a low down payment on 1-4 family owner occupied homes. Members that are eligible veterans can take advantage of the VA loan product. All of these loans allow up to a 6 percent seller concession, which helps to greatly reduce the funds necessary to get into a home. The TFCU offers free pre-approvals on any of the products.

14 - Times of Ti • Schroon Lake

April 21, 2012

Schroon seeking nominations for citizen/organization of the year By John Gereau SCHROON LAKE — For the past 35 years, the Schroon Lake community has honored one of its own as the citizen or organization of the year. This year will be no different, and the Schroon Lake Chamber of Commerce is now canvassing for nominations of those deserving of the prestigious award. Rosemarie Ritson, of the chamber of commerce, said the award was originally created in 1976 to honor an individual who made a significant contribution to the quality of life in the lakeside community. About a decade ago, it was expanded to include organizations such as the Schroon Lake Association, which was honored in 2011, and the Schroon Lake Fish & Game Club, which was honored in 2010.

Other honorees over the past few years include Ed Donley in 2009, Dick Newell in 2008 and Lorraine Erikson in 2007. “We have had 26 individuals, three couples and five organizations honored,” Ritson said. The procedure to nominate a citizen or organization includes writing a letter of nomination and submitting it by May 8 to the Schroon Lake Chamber at PO Box 726, Schroon Lake NY 12870. The letter should include comments about why the person or organization is deserving of the award, including any accomplishments, achievements, volunteer endeavors, personal characteristics and community support efforts — endeavors that ultimately improve the quality of life in Schroon Lake, Ritson said. Nominees do not need to be chamber members, but must reside in Schroon, North Hudson, Paradox or Severance. The nominations will be considered by the chamber ’s

Board of Directors during a May 15 meeting. The honoree will be recognized during a June 19 dinner, Ritson said. “The nominee is chosen on merit, not by the number of letters submitted on their behalf,” Ritson said. Schroon Lake Supervisor Mike Marnell, who sits on the chamber ’s Board of Directors, said past recipients have all displayed a common trait — a commitment to the community. “All have been very civic-minded,” he said. New this year is a perpetual membership plaque that hangs on the wall in the chamber ’s offices. Nameplates on the plaque list honorees going back to 1976, and a new plate will be added for each new honoree, Ritson said. “That way anyone stopping by our office can see the honorees dating back to when the award was initially created,” Ritson said. For more information, call the chamber at 532-7675.

Coming up: Classic Car Cruise-In and Dragway Reunion in North Hudson and dragway reunion in the ensuing years. Anyone who has a dragway car or a classic car is invited to come and put their vehicle on display. Motorcycles and trucks are also put on review. Photos, documents or memorabilia from the dragway are welcome; there will be tables available for display. It is a very informal day. There are no admission fees and no prizes are given. The Auxiliary does a 50/50 raffle and a car care bucket raffle that includes various items donated by area businesses. There is a restriction on vendor tables and fundraising activities other than those by the Auxiliary. Hot dogs, michigans, chips and soda, water, as well as coffee and tea, will be served by Auxiliary members starting at 11 a.m. Donations are gratefully accepted. For further information, please call April at 532-7877.

The Classic Car Cruise-In is an early summer highlight for automobile enthusiasts of all generations.


NORTH HUDSON — The fifth annual Classic Car Cruise-In and Dragway Reunion will be held May 5 at the North Hudson Firehouse located on Route 9. The event is sponsored by the North Hudson Volunteer Woman’s Auxiliary. The day's activities will begin at 9 a.m. Coffee and breakfast snacks will be available in the morning as cars and motorcycles begin arriving. The original event was held in 2008 as a presentation of the Schroon-North Hudson Historical Society on the fiftieth anniversary of the creation of the North Hudson Dragway and was a reunion of drivers and families who participated in the dragway. A few folks brought cars that were older vehicles from that era. Everyone attending had a fun day and wanted another get-together the next year.

United Way lauds county board chairman Douglas feted at dinner By Dan Alexander PLATTSBURGH — Essex County Board of Supervisors Chairman Randy Douglas was awarded the Dorothy and Alan Booth Distinguished Citizen Award by the United Way of the Adirondacks at its annual dinner March 3 at the American Legion Post in Plattsburgh. Douglas was praised for his community services especially throughout the Essex County area ravaged by Hurricane Irene last fall. In accepting the award Douglas paid tribute to his father and noted that public service was the “family business” and he hoped his father who has passed away was proud of his service to those in need. The Booth Award was initiated in 1985 by the United Way and named after Dorothy and Alan Booth for their ongoing voluntary and philanthropic support of community programs. Douglas became the 28th recipient of the Distinguished Citizen Award. In a surprise announcement, retiring New York State Assemblywoman Teresa Sayward, when offering a few remarks at the close of

the evening, pulled a check out of her pocket and spoke of the valuable work accomplished in the community by the United Way through their partner agencies. She went to say that since her election campaigns funds were raised in the district, she only felt it was right, since she would no longer be running for office to return the money where it could do the most good. She presented next year ’s campaign chair Gayle Alexander with a check for $5,000, unofficially kicking off the 2013 campaign. Alexander and Executive Director John Bernardi thanked her and assured her the funds would be put to good use. The evening began with opening remarks from Bernardi and United Way Board President Kirk Stallsmith, who introduced and thanked the United Way Board Directors, partner agencies and staff for the hard work and tireless dedication to the mission of the organization. They also praised the State Employees Federated Appeal and the Combined Federal Campaign who through their employees also support the United Way effort contributing nearly $50,000 to the 2012 United Way Campaign. Officers for the coming year were appointed and two new board members were

named. Named as officers were Kirk Stallsmith as president, Gerald Morrow as vice president, Victoria Marking as secretary, Anne Cutaiar as treasurer and Susan LeBlanc-Durocher serving as past president. The two new board members are John VanNatten of Glens Falls National Bank and Hugh Hill of the Malone Chamber of Commerce. 2012 Campaign Chair Gerald Morrow was recognized for his leadership in reaching the anticipated goal for the 2012 campaign during very difficult economic times. Morrow stated that even he had doubts they could reach the goal after seeing the devastation Hurricane Irene had on the region, but he applauded the campaign team, staff and the good people of the region for stepping up and making certain that those in need were not left to fend for themselves. At a time when very few United Way Campaigns in New York reached their goals, the Adirondack Region stood out and Morrow gave all the credit to the campaign team who worked hard and left “no stone unturned” in their efforts to reach the goal. Morrow also pledged his continued support to the 2013 campaign team.

Essex County Board of Supervisors Chairman Randy Douglas was awarded the Dorothy and Alan Booth Distinguished Citizen Award by the United Way of the Adirondacks at its annual dinner March 3 at the American Legion Post in Plattsburgh.

Beer tent may be back at Essex County Fair ELIZABETHTOWN — The return of a "beer tent" to the Essex County Fair is one step closer. Members of the Department of Public Works Committee voted 5-2 to move a resolution to the Ways and Means Committee meeting April 16 that would allow a beer area during the annual event for a one-year trial run. "The fair would like to go back to selling beer - just beer," Westport Supervisor Daniel Connell said. "Most fairs have gone back to it. It would be in a confined space and controlled. They are only allowed to buy a certain number of beers." Connell said that one of the main reasons behind the return of the beer area would be to curtail the amount of alcohol that was entering the grounds. "This dramatically cuts back on the number of beers that are brought onto the grounds," Connell said. "There is some money in it, but most fairs are doing it because it controls the amount that is brought into the grounds from outside." Some supervisors questioned if county backing to approve the facility was a wise move. "I have been in the beer tent before, but today is a different era," Moriah Supervisor Thomas Scozzafava said. "We support substance abuse and all of these different programs, and you have to wonder what kind of message we are sending if we do something that goes in the other direction." "I do not think that it will improve the attendance," Schroon Supervisor Michael Marnell said. "I would rather not see the beer. I buy beer, I drink beer and I used to sell beer, but I would prefer not to see the beer there." Connell said that the fair had previously stopped the practice of a beer tent due to liability concerns, but that the process for getting proper coverage has changed and a lot of other fairs have gone back to having a beer tent.

You need to go to two or three,” Bartley added. “You will also have access to the community, the unions and people who work at these places,” Politi said. “The people who will represent this board will be our structural inspectors in a way.” Scozzafava said that he wanted to make sure several areas were addressed in the process. “In any of these facilities, we need to determine how many of these beds are Medicare/Medicaid,” Scozzafava said. “That is critical information that we need to have. Also, regardless of whether the meetings are loaded with one side or the other side, you have to have some public meetings in this.” Politi said that, at this point, each of the supervisors should know how their constituents feel. “This has been a topic at the forefront of discussion for two years and has been a topic even longer,” he said. “I know how people in my town feel and I would hope that, as supervisors, you would already know how your constituents feel in your towns.” Scozzafava also asked that the members of the sub-committee visit all of the nursing homes involved, including Horace Nye. “If we are going to look at other nursing home, then I would think the members should go an take a look at the one that we currently operate,” he said. “I think that Tom's point about visiting Horace Nye as a group is a good idea and could even be used as a test run to what we are going to do when we go out to the other homes,” Corey added. Politi said that he hoped the committee could have their visits and study done within the next 30 days.

THE BURLEIGH  His re-opening OUSE 

Waters connect T

he adventure of outdoor travel is no longer considered a normal part of life for a majority of the country’s population. Yet buried deep inside all of us there remains a desire to tackle the challenges that such adventures once provided. Recreation, which comes from the Latin ‘recraere,’ means to regenerate or refresh. In some way, waterbased recreation causes us to revert to a slower pace and it returns us to a gentler place. Aristotle considered contemplation to be the greatest form of recreation. He believed contemplation was a luxury achieved only during the leisure hours. In some inexplicable manner, water sooths the human soul, it relaxes us and engenders camaraderie. Naturally, water makes us refreshingly civil, as it should, since nearly two thirds of the human body consists of water. For some odd reason, water makes us friendly. On the lakes, boaters always wave to each other in passing, even if they don’t know each other. It is a happy medium. Oddly, the folks who regularly wave to each other on the lake all summer would never dare to make eye contact while in the intimate confines of an elevator. On the water, we naturally look after each other. If someone appears stranded, and the cover is removed from their motor, boaters will flock to their aid like ants to a picnic. On the water we are all equal, sharing a precious natural resource and enjoying good times. Yet the same folks who were willing to help others on the lake will be ready to duke it out back at the dock as they jockey for position in the parking lot. It’s difficult to understand how friendly waves can change so quickly into a one-finger salute, but I’ve watched it happen time and again as soon as our feet meet pavement. It is difficult to understand why a return to civilization causes people to become instantly uncivil and toss common courtesy out the window. Water is a unique medium. It carries with it power and pain, wonder and awe, grace and glory. It has unusual effects on our psyche. In the Adirondacks, water continues to bind our towns and villages with a never-ending flow. Rare is a local commu-

April 21, 2012

nity that doesn’t have a lake or pond, river or stream located within close proximity to town. We often fail to recognize water’s ability to bring people together, to connect folks that may never get together under any other circumstances. Although I’ve witnessed it over and over again, I’ve never been able to understand why water so effects our collective mentality.

Angling courtesies

Unfortunately, there is only one sure method available for anglers to acquire the most valuable information for success on the waters. Such skills cannot be found in any book, they are instilled only through experience, and absorbed over the course of long hours of patient observation. They are not hard skills such as double-hauling a long cast with a fly rod, or working a sucker on a wire line to thump bottom for lake trout on a slow back troll. Possibly, the most valuable skill an angler can acquire is an ability to get along with others, which begins with an unerring ethic to do the right thing, even when there’s nobody else around to notice. Ethics can’t be studied in a book or a video. They are instilled, and absorbed through a process of careful observation and constant study. Currently, there are an estimated 50 million active anglers in the United States. According to a recent Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation study, 99 percent of them say they learned to fish because ‘someone’ once took the time to introduce them to the sport. They had a mentor who took the time to show them how it was done. Mentors are an unselfish breed who work to insure all anglers acquire the same ethics they’ve learned. Students learn to fish through practice and a good deal of trial and error. However, students absorb ethics through observation, and there is no room for error. They learn that things are done differently on the river. Fishing is a sport that requires no referees, and no defined playing field. The rules are all natural, and there is no time clock, no cheerleaders, and no one keeps score. The most important skill they learn is the ability to be as quiet as possible, to remain observant at all times, and to extend the proper respect for all river users, whether finned or not. A key to successful angling adventures is the ability to recognize and avoid any behaviors or actions that would spoil the enjoyment of others. Of utmost importance is an unwavering personal commitment and concern for the natural resources that will continue to provide us with future angling opportunities. Believe it or not, we all live downstream. It was the jet stream that brought us acid rain, mercury and a host of other toxins that nearly destroyed the region’s fisheries. These threats are certain to continue in the future and without constant vigilance, we may not always be as fortunate as we have been to date.

The 12th annual Ticonderoga High School senior-faculty basketball game was held recently. The seniors were coached by Corey King and Samantha McLaughlin. The faculty were coached by Rick McClintock. The faculty won the game and bragging rights for another year. There was a 50/50 half court shot contest at half time and sophomore Mark Donohue was the first to make a basket and won $15. The THS yearbook staff thanked all who participated and attended the game.

While the vast majority of anglers are responsible sportsmen and women, it takes only a few slobs to ruin the public perception of all fishermen. Styrofoam worm containers are responsible for ruining the image of all anglers. Today, public use of trails and rivers is growing steadily. For every person hiking on a trail in 1960, there are more than three people now putting down tracks. It is a well-known fact that travelers distribute themselves unevenly across wild places. Most of the use is concentrated in a few specific places located in a few popular wilderness areas. The Eastern High Peaks Wilderness Area offers a prime example of such concentrated use patterns. In fact, over half of all wilderness use occurs in a mere 10 percent of State-designated wilderness land, and the vast majority of that use occurs on only about 10 percent of the total trail miles. Similar patterns of use play out on most of the region’s lakes, rivers, ponds and streams, where an estimated 90 percent of all anglers concentrate their efforts on less than 10 percent of the available waters. We all want to feel like we’re the first to find a special place, to experience something ‘beyond remote.’ Many believe that this lust for wandering is in our blood, and it spawns an undeniable curiosity to find out what lies beyond the far horizon. We are all born with an innate drive toward discovery, an inexplicable need to explore our environment. However, there are only a fortunate few who still seek an opportunity to scratch this inborn itch. Most others are simply satisfied with roadside adventures. Here are a few lessons I’ve learned from those who still seek native fish in wild and desolate locations. • Go where the people aren’t! This is the single most important thing you can do to regularly catch decent fish. • Obey all state and local fishing laws, seasons and rules and always respect private property rights, even if no one’s around. • Do not litter. If you carry it in, take it out and leave the location cleaner than you found it. • Ask politely before approaching anyone on the water. If they don’t answer, move on. There’s no need to go where you’re not welcome. Alert fellow anglers if you have a fish on and need to intrude on their beat, and, of course, get out of the way if someone has a fish on in your area. Practice proper catch-and-release, and take only what you intend to eat. Freezing fish ruins the meat and wastes the taste. • Loosen up and relax! Angling should never become a chore. Fish upstream, and be aware of the sun, and avoid casting shadows over fish. • Never wear a watch while fishing. There is no need to know the time. A glint of sun from a watch crystal reflecting on a pool will put fish down. If they spook, rest the pool and return in 15 minutes. Fish have short memories. • Fish a likely looking hole from much further away than you deem necessary, and stay as low to the water as possible. Fish fear shadows! • When fishing from a boat, maintain a respectful distance from other anglers and resist the temptation to encroach on their territory unless invited to do so. Avoid banging around in a boat/canoe and always speak in a low voice. Respect the waters, the fish and your fellow anglers. • Just because a person is sitting down or standing on the bank without a rod, don’t assume it’s all right to fish. They may just be surveying the water or resting the pool. It’s their beat, just move along. • Don’t curse out loud. If you’ve got trout-rage, keep it inside. Use common sense and respect others and if you think they have a problem with you, just ask. • Respect other visitors and protect the quality of their experience. Be courteous. Let nature's sounds prevail, and avoid loud voices and noises. • Keep cell phones well away from the water. Most anglers come to the streams to escape such intrusions. • If you must, build a small fire and stay close. The larger the fire, the bigger the fool.
