TICONDEROGA — Ticonderoga will get a spring cleaning next weekend. Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership, PRIDE, Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce and Ticonderoga Kiwanis will join forces for a clean-up day Saturday, May 12. “We want to put a fresh face on our community and we encourage other groups and organizations to join us in enhancing our community before the summer season starts in earnest,” said John Bartlett, chairman of the Ticonderoga Montcalm Street Partnership. “Ticonderoga is blessed with many strengths which it can build upon,” Bartlett said. “With a fresh coat of paint and sparkling clean windows, we can continue the journey to a better tomorrow — one that welcomes families and friends, tourists and entrepreneurs as well to our town.”

Senior class plans event By Fred Herbst fred@denpubs.com

SCHROON LAKE — Schroon Lake Central School’s senior class wants to leave a lasting impression. That’s why the class will sponsor an American Red Cross blood drive on Monday, May 7 from noon to 6 p.m. at the school auditorium.

“Our goal is to have between 60 and 70 people,” said Katelyn Rose, class president. “The more people who are willing to give, the more lives we can save. For every pint of blood donated three lives are saved.” People can contact Rose at 532-0590 or Email sportogirl@verizon.net to schedule an appoint to give blood. Walk-ins are also welcome. Rose said planning the blood drive has been rewarding. “Helping others and getting to meet new people, overall it’s just a great experience,” Rose said.

“Thank you in advance to everyone planning on donating, including teachers and staff at Schroon Lake, students and community members. It’s greatly appreciated.” Those donating blood will have a chance to win a $50 Lowe’s gift card. The Schroon Lake blood drive is especially important, according to Red Cross officials. March blood donations were 8 percent below levels from a year ago, leading to a shortage. Officials blame spring allergies. CONTINUED ON PAGE 16

NCCC student learning about Ti business By Fred Herbst

fred@denpubs.com TICONDEROGA — The Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce is getting some help this spring thanks to North Country Community College. The chamber has an intern from the NCCC Ticonderoga campus. Amy LaVare will work at the chamber office until mid-May, assisting the chamber with dayto-day operations, working on projects and assisting with events. “It has been a wonderful experience working with Matt Courtright and Molly Bechard at the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce,” LaVare said. “It truly has been a great learning experience for me. I have learned so much about what the chamber’s role is and all they do for the Ticonderoga area as well as about area businesses and visitors.” Courtright is the chamber’s executive director. Bechard is the chamber’s visitor and member service representative/office assistant. “I did not realize all the chamber does for the community, area businesses and the area as a whole,” Lavare added. “I would recommend to

community members looking to volunteer or get involved to be part of the chamber to assist them in serving the Ticonderoga area. I plan to continue to be involved with the chamber after my internship is over.” The internship is going so well, North Country Community College and the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce are working to continue internship partnership. “We are thrilled to continue to strengthen the partnership between NCCC and the chamber,” Courtright said. “I enjoy working with the team at NCCC and look forward to continue working with them on the internship program as well as other possibilities. “Amy LaVare has been an absolute pleasure to have working for the chamber,” he added. “She is a hardworking, dedicated and friendly person with wonderful customer service skills. We were honored that she was our first intern from North Country Community College here at the chamber. “The NCCC campus in Ticonderoga is beautiful and is an asset to the community,” Courtright said. “The campus and students have many things going on and we are happy to continue to be involved in a variety of ways.”

The internship program is a plus for NCCC students, according to college officials. “Our business students will benefit greatly from the opportunity to be a member of the chamber team,” said Jane Carpenter, NCCC business professor. “This is an exciting organization that represents a variety of businesses in the area and will provide numerous opportunities for our students to take their classroom experiences and contribute to the activities that will strengthen the Ticonderoga area business community. The experience of the chamber director from other four year college and universities, his internships, career and personal experiences will also contribute to a successful internship experience for NCCC students.” North Country Community College offers associate degree programs in Liberal Arts & Sciences: Humanities & Social Science, Fine ArtsStudio, Liberal Arts & Sciences: Math & Science, Business Administration, Environmental Science, Sports and Events Management, Wilderness Recreation Leadership, Business Administration, Entrepreneurship Management, Business: Office Technology, Computer Graphics & Design, Radiologic Technology, Nursing (Registered Nurse), Massage Therapy, Criminal Jus-

Ticonderoga woman joins fort board TICONDEROGA — The Fort Ticonderoga Association named Anne McDonald to its board of trustees. “I’m thrilled to welcome Anne McDonald to the board of trustees. With her longstanding support to Fort Ticonderoga and deep ties to the Ticonderoga community and the North Country as a whole, she will add strength and wisdom to the Board,” said Peter Paine, president

of the board of trustees of the Fort Ticonderoga Association. McDonald, a retired teacher, is a Ticonderoga resident. “I am honored and excited at being elected a trustee of the Fort Ticonderoga Association,” McDonald said. “I look forward to working with the local community and in helping to continue the preservation and expansion of this national resource”

McDonald holds an undergraduate degree from Russell Sage College, Troy, and completed master level work at SUNY-Plattsburgh. McDonald is active in regional professional, political, civic organizations and has served as the chairwoman for the Essex County Republican Committee and president of the Heritage Museum Board of Directors in Ticonderoga. She is currently a member of the North Country Com-

munity College Foundation Board. “Anne’s passion for Fort Ticonderoga’s mission and community connection to Ticonderoga make her an ideal addition to the board,” said Beth Hill, executive director of Fort Ticonderoga. “She has been a valued adviser and I look forward to her leadership as Fort Ticonderoga achieves its vision to be the premier military historic site and museum in North America.”

Ticonderoga raising trash fees to makeup transfer station deficit fred@denpubs.com TICONDEROGA — The price of trash disposal in Ticonderoga is going up. The town board has approved a rate increase from the present 10 cents a pound to 15 cents a pound. The increase will be effective as soon as new trash tickets are received from a printer. All previously-sold trash tickets will be honored at the town trash transfer station on the Vineyard Road. New trash tickets will be sold in $6, $15 and $30 increments. It’s the first increase in the price of garbage disposal since the town opened its transfer station more than 20 years ago, Tonya Thompson, town clerk, pointed out. “We’ve been losing money up there (the transfer station),”

Thompson said. “The town board was looking for ways to break even with the trash and they realized we’ve never had a price increase.” Thompson pointed out the town isn’t looking to make money at the trash station, simply cover expenses. Supervisor Deb Malaney agreed. “We don’t like raising any costs for residents, but with the new tax cap (state-mandated 2 percent limit on tax increases) we have to make sure things pay for themselves,” she said. “There’s never been an increase in our trash fees. It had to happen. “It’s still a good deal,” she added. “It’s very economical and the staff at the station are very friendly and helpful.” Ticonderoga trash tickets are available at the town clerk’s office by cash or check. They are also available at the transfer site by check only. The Ticonderoga trash transfer station is open Tuesday

Thoughts on Randy Richards

T

here may be compelling reasons why Lake Placid’s school board continues to stand behind embattled Superintendent Randy Richards. It would behoove all concerned for the board to explain those reasons to the public, because, on the face of it, the situation does not add up. To his credit, Board President Phil Baumbach recently provided us with a rationale for keeping Richards on the payroll. It doesn’t strike us as compelling, but it’s better than silence. “First and foremost, Randy Richards is a responsible guy,” Baumbach said. “He’s been able to provide a good budget for the voters, he’s keeping the academic programs going, and he’s doing this at a very challenging time. We’ve heard what the community has said, but we feel that Randy is moving the school forward ... In any community there will always be differences.” Baumbach’s comments are a start, but seem unlikely to satisfy the crowds that attend board meetings. Creating a responsible budget for the voters and moving a school forward is the minimum that a school superintendent should do. If you haven’t been following this story, here’s an abridged version: Richards has admitted to using language that is wholly inappropriate and unacceptable, particularly when one considers the setting and context in which the offensive terms were used. After that, Lake Placid’s high school principal, Katherine Mulderig — one woman at the receiving end of Richards’ derogatory remarks — filed a gender discrimination complaint against Richards. As has been widely reported, the Equal Opportunity Employment Coalition eventually found that the principal had standing for her claims that Richards engaged in gender discrimination, retaliation, and the creation of a hostile work environment. Mulderig’s peculiar recent exit from the scene adds another wrinkle to the mess. People in Lake Placid and Wilmington are outraged. Taxpayers line up at packed school board meetings (which are now necessarily held in a much larger room) to give the powers that be a dose of their ire, voices shaking with emotion — and receive sustained applause from the crowd. Retired high school principal Robert Schiller has emerged as a voice of dissent, a

position difficult for many who know Schiller to fathom. Schiller always seemed a genial consensus builder, but there he was, handing the school board a petition with nearly 600 signatures demanding Richards’ ouster. Schiller — who is a highly respected member of the community and has rare insight into school matters — recently presented the board with a long list of reasons for the district to shed Richards, most of which are unrelated to his offensive comments. It is readily apparent that large numbers of parents and teachers join Schiller in broadly distrusting Richards’ competence and judgement. It may be that Richards is a decent man who made a mistake, owned up to it, and apologized. However, if Richards wanted to behave decently, it seems likely that he would have resigned months ago, sparring everyone else considerable time and frustration. He has said that he anticipates staying on the job through next spring. We believe that the members of Lake Placid’s school board are public-spirited volunteers who are acting under the advice of attorneys and doing their best under trying circumstances. The idea that they are privy to information that justifies their support for Richards is plausible, but their community is poorly served by any counsel who advises continued silence. Silence in such situations (and they are unfortunately a reoccurring phenomenon around our area) is easily interpreted as stonewalling, as waiting it out until “they” get tired of the matter and move on — or as something more insidious. Secrecy on such matters often serves to increase discord, distrust and division. The firestorm in Lake Placid seems likely to continue until the board presents the public with reasonable explanations. Aren’t taxpayers observing such spectacles entitled to at least that much?

Is the sky falling?

I

really hate to be pessimistic. I also want to avoid being politically slanted. We see far too much of that in society today. Over the last few years that I’ve been writing this column I’ve received many chain emails claiming one viewpoint or another. I am equally offended by things I see coming from the left and the right. In my opinion it is far better to report on, and talk about, the facts than it is to relentlessly use the news in support of a political ideology. With that said, I must confess that I am becoming increasingly worried about our future and about the lack of Americans on both the left and the right banding together to stand up and work for change. People I speak with tend to be very passionate about defending their political perspective based on their alignment with the left or the right. I find very few who are evenly balanced in the middle of our political landscape and are willing to see things from a broad, openminded perspective. Blame it on all the talking heads, the biases of most media organizations these days, the amount of misinformation that is sent through the Internet, or the fact that we cling to the information we want to be true and refuse to listen to anything contrary to that position. As a nation, we were founded on the notion that our basic rights are provided by a supreme being and that ordinary people are more than capable of governing themselves. The United States’ government had one primary purpose: to protect the rights of its private citizens. At the time we became a nation, the world’s nations were generally governed by an elite hereditary class. Individual rights were granted and controlled by those ruling the nation. I fear we are slowly abandoning the premise of our founding fathers in favor of turning the government over to a ruling class while turning our backs on each other and the principles our ancestors fought for. We are under assault by small, but powerful and wealthy groups that intend to exploit the government’s power for their own personal gain. We see it time and time again from large corporations, environmentalists, union leaders, entertainers and career politicians who very persuasively pursue their agendas in the name of democracy, while leaving the rest us to fend for ourselves and pay for their gains. As our nation’s debt now exceeds the country’s Gross National Product and stands at $15.4 trillion, soon Congress will be forced to have yet another vote to raise the debt ceiling, why are we not demanding more accountability from our

elected officials and those who lobby the influential few? Instead we fall in line and believe that our elected officials Dan Alexander have our best inThoughts from terests at heart. Behind the Pressline The figures contained in a new book called “The Rise of the President’s Permanent Campaign,” by Brendan J. Doherty, provide statistical backing to the notion that President Obama is more preoccupied with being re-elected than with solving the nation’s economic woes. Doherty, who has compiled statistics about presidential travel and fundraising going back to President Jimmy Carter in 1977, found that President Obama had already held 104 re-election fundraisers by March 6. A combined 94 events were held in the same timeframe by presidents Carter, Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Clinton, and George W. Bush. Since then, the President has held another 20 fundraisers, bringing his total to 124 high-priced, lavish events. Carter held four re-election fundraisers during the 1980 campaign, Reagan had zero in 1984, Bush 19 in 1992, Clinton 14 in 1996, and Bush 57 in 2004. The Supreme Court’s ruling this past summer allowing for the creation of super PACs ( Political Action Committees) with unlimited fundraising capacity makes it clear that we the people are but simple pawns in the battle between the left and the right, the powerful and the super-rich who, day by day, are taking control of the country. Our founding fathers created a government controlled by the people, with citizen legislators. All we need do to is take a honest look around. Ask yourself: Do you feel in charge? Have you seen the government working for your best interest, securing the future for your children, insuring your rights as a citizen, or providing you with the freedom to secure your own? I am very worried about the future and what I see happening on both sides of the aisle. I sincerely hope we all see what’s happening and are brave enough and selfless enough to demand a return to a government of the people and for the people.

Reflections Reflections

Letters give glimpse into Moriah’s past

T

he following are letters written by Ellen D. Witherbee Atwell in 1899 and 1900 to her nephew Tyler Reed Woodbridge of Victor, Colo. She was age 64 at that time. She tells of her family life, traditions, and some facts of history relating to the Witherbee family, handed down by her parents and grandparents, written at Port Henry. These letters were sent to me from Bill Knowlton of Liverpool in 2002. Ellen Atwell was his great aunt. This is the final installment. Epilogue to Aunt Ell’s Letters by Milley Adams Witherbee Milliken-Oct. 1953, Granddaughter of Thomas & Milley Adams Weatherby” “John and his wife, Florence, remained in Durango until driven out by the Mexican Revolution in 1912. They returned to Port Henry, where they remained for a long time, then came to New York and lived in Jackson Heights. Florence died in 1930 and from then on until his death in 1937 he lived with me. Mother also lived with me almost continuously from the time of the birth of my son Ned (Albert Edward) until her death in 1927. The great tragedy of our young lives was the death of our wonderful and beloved brother George, who with five companions, was drowned in Lake Champlain when his yacht ALPHA capsized. He had graduated with honors from Cornell University in June and was going back for a post-graduate course and, having been elected Captain of the Football Team in the Spring, started off on the last cruise of the season before pulling the yacht out for the winter and it proved to be his last cruise.” AN ANECDOTE: “One time when we were living in Mexico, my husband and I came north to Chicago and at the hotel where we were staying we met a very nice middle-aged couple from Oregon - Middle-aged to me because they were in their middle-fifties and I was twenty-three. I will call them Smith as I do not remember their name. One day in the course of conversation the inevitable question came up - “Where did you come from originally?” Mrs. Smith said she came from Vergennes, Vermont, and when I said that I came from Port Henry, she looked surprised and said, “Port Henry?” I said, “Yes, do you know the place?” She said, “No, but when I was a young girl I was very much in love with a young man who used to go to Port Henry and he became much interested in a young girl there and I was very jealous”. When I asked, “Was the girl’s name Mill Pease”, she opened her eyes in astonishment and said “How did you know?” Then I said “And the young man’s name was Dave Morgan?” She was even more surprised and asked again how I knew. I told her that Mill Pease was my Mother and I had heard her speak of Dave Morgan when he use to come over to train the band. She agreed that it was a small world - that we should have met, she having come to Chicago by way of Oregon and I by way of Mexico.” “Some of the incidents related in Aunt Ell’s letters occurred at the farm in Crown Point and others in Port Henry to which place the family moved sometime between 1843 when the youngest child, Thomas Francis was born, and 1850 when his father died, as “Tommie” was not quite seven years old when he died. The furnace referred to was one of the old furnaces at the northern end of the village, which he was given special permission to visit at will as a young boy because of his interest in machinery and the workings of the furnace. He designed and built the “New Furnace” at the southern end of the village around 1873 to 1875 when he was in his early thirties.” Joan Daby is the retired town of Moriah historian.

Family fights cancer in father’s memory ‘Team Ice Cream’ part of NYC event

By Fred Herbst

fred@denpubs.com PUTNAM — Never under estimate the power of ice cream. Jim Dayton loved dessert. Now, in his memory, his family has formed “Team Ice Cream.” Lynne Dayton, his daughter, and his niece Kristi Watts Warters will participate in his honor at the 2012 Walk for Pancreatic Cancer Research on Sunday, May 6, in New York City. They are asking people to support their walk by donating the cost of Jim’s favorite dessert. Checks made out to the Lustgarten Foundation can be mailed to Lynne Dayton at 250 East 40th Street, #3C, New York, NY 10016 or people can donate online at CUREPC.org or call 1-866-789-1000. Donations are tax deductible and every dollar raised goes directly to pancreatic cancer research. Dayton, who lived in Putnam and had a Ticonderoga mailing address, died Sept. 19, 2011, of pancreatic cancer. He loved Ti and Putnam, according to his daughter. “I not only mourn the loss of my father, but also the loss of a man that truly believed in the importance of small town values,” Lynne Dayton said. “I may live in the hustle and bustle of Manhattan now, but I hope I never forget to just slow down, let somebody else go first, hold open that door and when times get tough, have a dish of ice cream, because my dad believed it was impossible to be unhappy while eating ice cream.” Jim Dayton was born and raised in a small town in Michigan and after being stationed at the Air Force base in Plattsburgh, he met and married Colleen Grimes. They lived in Ticonderoga and Putnam Station early in their marriage and after Jim retired as an electrician.

“Living in a small town meant long time neighbors became family, adopting titles like ‘Aunt’ and ‘Uncle’ and that you would lend a helping hand to others, without being asked, whenever it was needed,” Lynne Dayton said. “It also meant working with the barter system. I am convinced that my dad planted home improvement projects in my ‘Aunt’ Belva Blood’s head just so he could get paid in her famous homemade pies and doughnuts!” Ticonderoga and Putnam were important to Jim Dayton, according to his daughter. “Small town values to my dad, meant supporting Ticonderoga’s small business community and looking for the ‘Made in the USA’ labels,” she said. “On Memorial Day, it meant quietly visiting the grave sites of family and friends in town, that had long since departed and especially acknowledging the sacrifice of veterans, because it was the right thing to do.” Jim Dayton became ill unexpectedly. “My father passed away on Monday, Sept 19, 2011,” Lynne Dayton recalled. “He was diagnosed with end stage pancreatic cancer the first week of August 2011 with no prior symptoms or health issues. He never drank, never smoked, (had) perfect weight, and led a physically active lifestyle working for Bill Blood Construction. He had just had his annual physical that spring where his doctor complimented him on his excellent health. “We learned that pancreatic cancer usually is symptom free until it is so far advanced that the patient does not have a fighting chance,” she continued. “That is what happened with my dad. The tumor silently grew until it blocked his bile duct causing mild nausea and later yellowing of the whites of the eyes due to jaundice. “The doctors we met with at Fletcher Allen Hospital said it is the cancer they fear the most of getting themselves because

Jim Dayton, who lived in Putnam and had a Ticonderoga mailing address, died Sept. 19, 2011, of pancreatic cancer. He loved ice cream, especially when sharing it with his granddaughter Janessa Boswell, his grandson Christopher Dayton and his Goddaughter Elena Watts Warters. it is so hard to detect,” she said. “That is why it is so important to raise money for research. Scientists are hoping to develop a screening test much like the PSA test to detect early stage prostate cancer to give those who develop pancreatic cancer a fighting chance.” After he became ill, Jim Dayton appreciated his community even more. “All of the small town kindnesses he had shown others in the past came back to him during those weeks,” Lynne Dayton said. “The lawn was mowed, food magically appeared, and when my dad was too sick to stay home, those friends who became family, made countless trips to Burlington by ferry to visit my dad in his hospice room.”

King’s garden to sell plants Annual event May 19

TICONDEROGA — The King’s Garden at Fort Ticonderoga will hold its annual pre-season plant sale Saturday, May 19, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Staff and volunteers will be on-hand to answer questions and dig your selections. There is no admission charge to attend the plant sale and visitors are encouraged to bring their own bags, boxes or bins. Local growers and nurserymen will be on hand offering premium potted annuals, hanging baskets, shade-loving perennials, and vegetables, including many varieties of heirloom tomatoes. New this year is a large selection of herbs to round out your flower or vegetable gardens or choose mixed herb pots that are ready to go. Also new is the opportunity to purchase shrubs including blueberries and raspberries for edible landscaping. These expert growers will offer advice on selection, planting and care. Nearly 5,000 plants are installed in the King’s Garden in late May and early June. Volunteer forms will be available at the sale. Hours are flexible for volunteers and instruction is given. The walled King’s Garden was originally designed in 1921 by leading landscape architect Marian Coffin. The formal elements – a reflecting pool, manicured lawn and hedges, and brick walls and walkways – are softened by a profusion of annuals and perennials, carefully arranged by color and form. Heirloom flowers and modern cultivars are used to recreate the historic planting scheme. Visitor favorites include the lavender border, towering hollyhocks, bearded irises, dinner plate dahlias and many types of phlox. Outside of the nine-foot brick walls of the colonial revival King’s Garden, the Discovery Gardens include a children’s garden, military vegetable garden, and Three Sisters Garden. The restored Lord and Burnham greenhouse, charming gazebo, sweeping lawns and shady picnic spots invite visitors to explore the landscape at one of America’s oldest gardens dating to the French occupation of the Fort in the mid-18th century. The King’s Garden is open June 1 through Columbus Day 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. For information about 2012 King’s Garden programs visit http://www.fortticonderoga.org/visit/gardens/kings-garden-programs or call the Fort Ticonderoga offices at 585-2821.

Costello scholarship to be awarded ‘Flippancy Fest’ set July 27 SILVER BAY — The John Costello Memorial Scholarship Award was founded in 2004 to give a high school senior the opportunity to enrich their life. Costello died at age 19 in an accident in August 2003. He was a 2002 graduate of Ticonderoga High and attended Adirondack Community College. He had a great love of music and friendship, which he found in abundance at Silver Bay, where he was a summer “emp.” The first annual coffeehouse, which helps support the scholarship awards, was dubbed “Flippancy Fest” by the first recipients and organizers, Alison Rutkowski and Ryan Davis, classmates of Costello. “It was held outdoors at Silver Bay under a beautiful

star-filled Adirondack sky on Aug. 5, 2004,” recalled Karen Costello, John’s mother. “Since then, there has been seven more equally beautiful, yet totally unique, Flippancy Fests. The scholarship recipients have taken much more away with them than just their monetary gift. “The scholarship was inspired by the harmony created by John’s life and passing,” his mother noted. “It offers someone a life-enriching experience, as well as a financial reward at the end of the season. While the recipient helps organize this year ’s coffeehouse, to be held July 27, 2012, there are hopes for an entertaining and good feeling-filled evening.” This year ’s recipient(s) will be chosen in June. Information and applications for the annual scholarship can be obtained from the school counselors or Carolyn Close at Silver Bay Association 543-8834 or by contacting Karen Costello at 543-6590.

May 5, 2012

Nurses play a vital role in the region’s health care

Donna Gorton, left, director of nursing for Hudson Headwater Health Network, looks over reports with Dr. Kathleen Pangia and medical assistant Angel Perkins at the Ticonderoga clinic. Nurses will be recognized for their efforts May 6 to 12 during National Nurses Week.

National Nurses Week May 6-12 By Fred Herbst fred@denpubs.com

TICONDEROGA — What exactly does a nurse do? “We do it all,” said Donna Gorton, director of nursing for the Hudson Headwaters Health Network. “There’s never a dull day when you’re a nurse. We play an ever-evolving role in the lives of our patients, from new borns to end-of-life care. We do primary care, offer specialty services, we’re educators. We do it all.” Gorton, a Ticonderoga resident,

oversees a staff of 145 nurses at Hudson Headwater clinics in Ticonderoga, Moriah, Schroon Lake, Moreau, Fort Edward, Queensbury, Glens Falls, West Mountain, North Creek, Indian Lake, Chester, Bolton and Warrensburg. HHHN nurses also service the Warren County Correctional Center and staff a care management team. “We play a very active role in the care of patients,” Gorton said. “We kind of make up the pulse of the health center. We’re the liasions with the medical staff, the front office staff and the patients. We play a lot of roles.” Nursing is a growing and changing field, said Gorton, who has

been a nurse since 1977. Opportunities and responsibilities are ever growing, she said. “We focus not just on taking care of patients who are sick, but play an integral role in prevention,” Gorton said. “We make sure certain people are up to date on important tests — things like colonoscopies and mammograms — we make certain children have the proper immunizations. We help in any way we can.” Gorton has been Hudson Headwaters director of nursing for 10 years. “I acknowledge the nurses at Hudson Headwaters and in all oth-

er facilities,” Gorton said. “I appreciate everything they do. They work very hard, every day.” Nurses will be recognized for their efforts May 6-12 during National Nurses Week. May 12 is the birthday of Florence Nightingale, who became widely known as a nurse in 1860s. Since 1994, May 6-12 has been celebrated as National Nurses Week. Beginning with National Nurses Day on May 6, the week is an opportunity to recognize nurses for their contributions to improving health, as both clinicians in a wide range of care settings and leaders who have a significant im-

pact on the quality of care and effectiveness of the health care system. Nursing is at the forefront of efforts to broaden access to care and transform the U.S. health care system from one designed to deliver “sick care” to one more focused on prevention and wellness. Nursing is the nation’s largest health care profession with 3 million nurses and is growing. Nursing is projected to grow faster than all other occupations. More than 700,000 new RN jobs are anticipated by 2020, a 26 percent increase, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The community clean up will be 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Volunteers can contact Joyce Cooper at 5852640 or email gcooper1@nycap.rr.com. Volunteers can also sign-up on the day of the event next to Rathbun Jewelers. Volunteers will be organized into groups. “Volunteers will be encouraged to sign up for the team and activity where they have the most interest and where they feel they can best contribute,” Bartlett said. “For example, it is anticipated that the list of specific spring clean activities will include Montcalm Street hose down, window washing, painting parties, LaChute trail cleanup, roadside trash pick-up, filling the flower boxes on the LaChute bridge, refreshing of natural areas, the landscaping at the library and more.” As part of the clean-up effort, Good Point Recycling from Middlebury is expected to have a truck at the public parking lot across on the corner of Montcalm Street and Champlain Avenue for people to recycle old electronic equipment. “Enthusiasm is contagious,” Bartlett said. “Life in Ticonderoga is made beautiful with a gracious smile and a friendly wave. Capture the spirit and come join your neighbors as we work to put a fresh, clean face on our community. We hope that you will embrace the opportunity and participate in Ticonderoga’s spring clean.” Lunch will be provided for volunteers.

Ti group tours Costa Rica

Students, adults make trek

TICONDEROGA — A group of 19 Ticonderoga High School students and three adults completed a week-long educational tour of Costa Rica during the April 2012 break. The students included Rebecca White, Katherine Towne, Riley Chapman, Jay Hebert, Chris Burns, Autumn Olcott, Corey King, Nate Lenhart, Adam Losher, Josh Ross, Abby Gurney, Abby Bevilacqua, Haley Harris, Jolenta Bishop, Emilee Namer, Joe Gonyeau, Courtney Shaner and Sean Smith. The adults chaperones were Lynne Lenhart, Heather York and Denise Smith. The group departed San Jose on day two to the north for a tour of the Poas Volcano. The windy morning air was favorable for the group and blew the cloud cover away as the Ticonderoga group reached the look-out above the crater. Travelers got an unobstructed view of the lava dome and crater opening, complete with the escaping plume of steam. The students toured the Organization of Tropical Studies, a primary growth rainforest in the mountains of Sarapiqui. Samples of the wildlife seen by the tour members included many howler monkeys, a two and three-toed sloth, a wild pig, tropical birds, poison tree frogs and fire ants. The second part of the day also included a jungle tour, this time by way

A day of Whitewater rafting was included in the Sarapiqui portion of the tour. The second portion of the tour involved a journey to the eastern Caribbean coast of the country, through the coffee and Chiquita banana plantations. Students took an excursion through the Cahuita National park and visited Puerto

Viejo. The Ticonderoga students toured a small school in rural Limon province, bringing gifts of Ticonderoga pencils and spending time teaching English words to the Costa Rican Students. An informal soccer game ensued after the English lessons, with the Costa Rican students victorious over the Ticonderoga Students.

Runners to traverse new bridge Road race part of Lake Champlain Bridge celebration

By Fred Herbst

fred@denpubs.com CROWN POINT — Runners will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity as part of the grand opening celebration for the new Lake Champlain Bridge. “The New York/Vermont 5K Champlain Bridge Run,” a 5kilometer (3.1 miles) road race, will be held at 3 p.m. Sunday, May 20. The course, which will start at the Crown Point, N.Y., State Historic Site, will traverse the bridge into Vermont, return across the bridge and run through the New York State campsite on Lake Champlain before finishing back at the historic site. “I think runners will enjoy the course, particularly crossing the bridge,” said Nancy Ockrin, race director. “It’s a unique course.” About 100 runners have registered to date. Race officials expect about 200 to toe the starting line. The race is being sponsored by the LaChute Road Runners

Only bagged roadside garbage will be picked up on Monday May 7th. Thanks again to the people of Crown Point who care enough to help make our Town a cleaner place to live.

Schroon Lake • Times of Ti - 15

Schroon, Port Henry bridges get state money velopment with an innovative new strategy that will put New Yorkers back to work rebuilding the state's infrastructure, according to the Cuomo administration. “For the second straight year, New York State has worked and passed a balanced and transformative budget based on fiscal responsibility, job creation, government efficiency,” Cuomo said. “The cornerstone of this budget is the New York Works program, a new and smarter strategy for putting New Yorkers back to work by rebuilding our aging infrastructure and helping put our state's economy back on track, just the way

we have put our state government back on track. This significant investment will rebuild the foundation of the region's economy and create thousands of jobs for New Yorkers.” State Senator Betty Little said, “It’s not only the destination that counts, but the experience of getting there that means a lot to tourists, especially first-time visitors. So not only will these infrastructure improvement projects benefit those who live and work here and create new jobs, but there's also a tourism benefit by ensuring that in the years ahead our North Country roads and bridges

are not only safe but inviting.” The budget continues the governor ’s commitment to fiscal responsibility while creating jobs and strengthening communities across the state., administration officials said. It closes a multi-billion dollar deficit with no new taxes, fees or gimmicks, limits spending growth to two percent or below for the second year in a row, and launches the NY Works Task Force to invest billions of dollars to rebuild the state's roads, bridges, parks, and other infrastructure and create tens of thousands of jobs.

“The early blooming of plants and trees has some people feeling under the weather due to allergies, and they’re not able to give blood,” according to a Red Cross statement. “Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen a much lower-than-anticipated turnout for blood drives. Our blood supply has dropped to extremely low levels. While a number of factors could be contributing to the decline, blood donors in some parts of the country have indicated to our recruitment teams that allergies are impacting their ability to donate.” Donors must be at least 17 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds and be in good health. Only 5 percent of eligible donors across the nation donate blood, but the number of transfusions nationwide increases by 9 percent every year, according to the Red Cross. Each whole blood donation can help as many as three people. One unit is divided into three parts: red blood cells, platelets, and plasma. More than 38,000 blood donations are needed in the U.S. every day. 26014

Moriah Center home destroyed by fire Blaze seen for miles

By Fred Herbst

fred@denpubs.com MORIAH CENTER — A century-old Moriah Center building was destroyed by fire April 28. Moriah firefighters received a call at about 4 a.m. that a home on Ensign Pond Road was ablaze. More than 60 firefighters responded and battled the fire for more than six hours. Moriah, Port Henry and MinevilleWitherbee fire departments were at the fire, along with Westport Air One. Elizabethtown and Crown Point fire departments were on standby. Moriah Ambulance Squad was also at the scene. Moriah firefighters had to return to the smoldering building at about 12:30 p.m. when flames rekindled. They remained on the scene until after 3 p.m. Moriah Volunteer Fire Department Chief Ralph Jaquish Sr. said the fire is believed to have started in a wood-burning furnace in the basement. “This building was built in the 1800s,” Jaquish said. “Once the fire got to that old, dry wood there was no stopping it.” Lou Paris of the Moriah Ambulance Squad said flames were shooting 80 feet into the air. He could see the blaze from

MORIAH — More than 40 volunteers participated in the two Earth Day Projects that Champlain Area Trails coordinated April 21. In the morning, volunteers cleaned up the trailhead at the Cheney Mountain Trail in Moriah before hiking to the summit to see the views. Afternoon volunteers hiked on the Woods and Swale Trail in Westport and then picked up roadside litter as they returned to the trailhead along Sherman Road. They also cleaned up Halds Road by the Coon Mountain Trail. “The weather forecast was for rain but instead the sunny weather reflected the joy and cooperation of all the participants,” said Chris Maron, executive director of CATS. “At the Cheney Mountain trailhead, it was amazing to see everyone join in to clean up an unsightly area. They removed dumped piles of yard waste, bagged up trash, pulled rusty old refrigerators out of the woods, cut the tall vegetation, and rolled out several tires.” “Hiking the Cheney Mountain Trail was a great reward for our efforts,” said Bill Johnston, a volunteer from Wadhams. “After climbing the short and sometimes steep trail, the views are incredible. I especially liked looking out at the new Champlain Bridge.” The afternoon project in Westport was the first public hike on the new Woods and Swale Trail. “We really just wanted to get people out to see the trail,” said Maron. “It provides an easy opportunity to see a diverse forest, walk near the wetland swale, and then return along Sherman Road.” “We want to thank the volunteers, the towns of Moriah and Westport for their cooperation, and the local media, including the Times of Ti, for helping publicize opportunities for people to get involved in community projects,” added Katharine Preston, CATS board chair. “The broad support for trails and other improvement projects is a sure sign of increasing optimism in the valley.” Champlain Area Trails, located at 6482 Main St., Westport, is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to develop hiking/skiing trails that link Champlain Valley communities, connect people with nature, promote economic vitality, and protect natural areas, farmland, and scenic vistas.

ELIZABETHTOWN — Westport Supervisor Daniel Connell said he was surprised. Speaking during the April 30 Ways and Means Committee meeting, the Fair Committee chair from Westport said that he did not expect a request from the Agricultural Society to bring back a beer tent at the Essex County Fair for a one-year trail would be “so controversial.” “This request by the fair board has been under serious discussion for the past three years,” Connell said. “This decision was not entered into lightly. It is a common practice at most of the fairs throughout New York to sell alcohol, including at the New York State Fair.” Supervisors voted 11-5 to move the request for a beer tent to the full board meeting May 7. Connell said that the tent and the liquor license had already been purchased for the beer tent, adding that the county had previously adopted a policy for alcohol use which the fair would fall under. “This is a one-year trial,” Connell said. “No one is asking for the permanent permission of this board. It seems that the fair is being singled out because there are other organizations that use the grounds but now the fair.” Connell said that the fair board had done its homework on the matter and asked his fellow supervisors to “respect” their work. “I would ask that this board respects the fair board’s years of discussion on the matter and their recommendation,” he said. “I want this board to know that this is not a fly-bynight thing.” County Chair and Jay Supervisor Randy Douglas said that he would support the measure, adding that he could be seen as a hypocrite if he did not. “I am involved with celebrations in my own town where I have worked in the beer booth,” Douglas said. “With the new rules having a confined area for drinking does help. The events are more responsible and everyone is more aware of their surroundings. The plans that Mr. Connell have put in place are appropriate.” “We have been pushing our contract agencies to do more with less,” Minerva Supervisor Sue Montgomery Corey said. “This is not a perfect scenario to add revenue, but there is a policy in place.“ “I had people coming up to me and congratulating me for voting against this,” Schroon Supervisor Michael Marnell said. “I don't doubt that the committee can control the crowd while they are in the tent, but it is after they leave the tent. The consequences are too great to take that chance.” Willsboro Supervisor Ed Hatch said he did not feel the beer tent would have enough of an impact to the fair’s bottom line. “I do not see where you are going to have a lot of profit from the beer tent,” he said. Moriah Supervisor Thomas Scozzafava said he felt having a beer tent at the fair would send the wrong message. “I think that we are taking a step backwards,” Scozzafava said. “If (alcohol consumption) is taking place, shame on us and shame on whoever is supposed to be there to monitor it. I think that this sends the wrong message because we have DWI and drinking awareness events there every year.” Marnell said that he felt Sheriff Richard Cutting and District Attorney Kristy Sprague should also give their opinion on the beer tent. “If it passes, then we will treat and enforce it the way that we do with any other event,” Cutting said. “I worked when they had it there before, and there were problems. In this economy, it’s tough, and they are looking for different ways to make money.” “What I worry about is all the stuff that can come with that,” Sprague said, who added that she wanted to see more from Connell and the fair board if the supervisors were going to ask for her official opinion. Scozzafava, Blades, Marnell, Hatch and St. Armand Supervisors Joyce Morency voted against the resolution, while Boisen abstained from the vote. Chesterfield’s Gerald Morrow and North Elba’s Roby Politi were absent from the meeting.

They were biting this morning ... The annual blood drive is on its way

D

espite the early arrival of the spring season, there really hasn’t been much of a problem with skeeters or black flies to date. Although I have discovered a few of the notorious “flying teeth” orbiting my noggin in recent weeks, they have yet to draw my blood. However, I’m certain I’ll be obliged to provide a donation or two before the annual blood drive is over. However, despite the current absence of flying pests, it is no time to forget the annual warning about ticks, and the growing prevalence of Lyme disease in our region. At one time Lyme disease was considered a “downstate problem,” since incidents occurred primarily in the lower reaches of New York and in Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts. Many claimed it wasn’t a local problem. Lyme disease was rare in the Park, and in comparison to areas downstate it remains so. Make no mistake, though: Lyme disease has been prevalent in the Adirondacks for quite a while, and it is likely to get much worse in the future. According to the New York State Department of Health, bacteria transmitted by deer ticks causes Lyme disease. The animals most responsible for spreading the ticks that host the disease are the white-footed mouse and the white-tailed deer. Lyme disease is an equal opportunity affliction that hits people of any age who spend time in grassy or wooded environments. Young deer ticks are generally most active between mid-May and mid-August. Adult ticks are generally most active from March to mid-May and again from midAugust to November. Turkey hunters, who often sit for long hours along the edge of a field during the spring, are particularly susceptible due to the nature of their pursuit. So are deer hunters, who hunt in the fall, when adult ticks are again most active. Hikers, birders, and anyone else who spends time outdoors, recreating, raking leaves or enjoying a backyard BBQ need to be cognizant of the risks of Lyme. Ticks present a real and imminent threat, and Lyme disease symptoms can persist for years, and often result in lifelong suffering and disability. Flying insects such as blackflies, mosquitoes and deer flies are obvious pests. We can see them or hear them buzzing around our head or neck, and as a result, it is fairly easy to protect against them. We can swat them, spray them or even wear a head net in extreme conditions. However, ticks are more difficult to repel than mosquitoes or blackflies. They are tiny, about the size of a poppy seed, and we rarely see them or feel them. Ticks do not have a piercing bite, and they rarely draw blood. Unlike flying pests, ticks don’t target the head and neck. Rather, they often attach and attack around the ankles, or legs, where they are picked up from the tall grass. Repellents provide some protection against ticks, as does wearing light-colored, long-sleeved shirts and long pants tucked into socks. However, even the best of efforts cannot always keep ticks away. Outdoor travelers are advised to examine their clothing carefully after every woodland jaunt and to remove any ticks before they can attach themselves.

In most cases tick attachment takes 36 hours or longer, which provides plenty of time to take preventive measures. If you discover that a tick has embedded itself, it is wise to seek medical attention as soon as possible since early treatment with antibiotics almost always results in a full cure. The first apparent symptom of a tick bite is a rash resembling a bullseye that is about two inches in diameter near the site of the bite. Early symptoms normally occur within three to 30 days after the bite of an infected tick, but don’t always. The early stage of Lyme disease features symptoms such as chills and fever, headache, fatigue, stiff neck muscles and/or joint pain and swollen glands. If not detected and treated in these early stages these symptoms can worsen and more severe symptoms can manifest themselves. Lyme disease can become a debilitating ailment, and the odds of a full recovery decrease the longer treatment is delayed. Lyme disease treatments have become more effective, but if undetected or allowed to progress the disease can cause severe and long-lasting effects. For those who live in Lyme-prone regions, there is now an anti-Lyme disease inoculation, which is surely a wise investment. Although hunters and hikers are certainly more susceptible to tick attacks, anyone can be bitten while taking out the garbage, mowing the lawn or walking to the mailbox. You can run, but ticks will always find a place to hide. According to state health officials, the geographic range of Lyme disease has increased in New York State from Long Island and the lower Hudson Valley all the way north to the Canadian border. In less than a decade, the Essex County Health Department has seen the incidence of Lyme disease increase from single case in 2002, to over forty confirmed cases in 2008.

t’s Monday morning as I write this and all I can think about is that old Labatt Blue commercial of the fish on the phone with the guy at his office. “Real good Steve — real good,” the fish says. “We were biting this morning, we were biting this morning.” They probably are, too. Fishing is a bit like buying scratch-off tickets: The more committed you are, the better the odds. So I figure the odds gotta start turning my way. The weekend went like this: several ponds, nine miles of portage, cold mornings, lots of wind and they weren’t exactly jumping in the boat. I did manage to save my handicap with an early afternoon feed on Sunday — seems the trout sometimes decide to Quill Gordon get hungry on these chilly spring days just as the sun gets high. But I had nothing worth bragging about. The pond I was on routinely produces 14, 15-inch fish. These were more like 10 — no doubt last year ’s stockeys. It’s been an odd start this year. It feels like the ponds are a week to 10 days ahead because of the unseasonably warm Hendrickson weather we’ve had. I marked surface temps last week at around 54-56 degrees and saw my first caddis fly yesterday. Normally mayflies like subvaria (Hendrickson) or pleuris (Quill Gordon) beat the caddis fly to the surface. The old adage was always 50-55 degree water for the Quill Gordon, followed closely by the Hendrickson, then Caddis Pupa caddis. This time of year I’m more apt to try something like a caddis pupa wet fly or black stonefly behind a lure, since they are either still in the larvae stage or are just beginning to emerge to the pupa stage — a time trout relish, as well as when they are floundering on the surBlack Stonefly face as adults. I found lots of dark black larvae in the bellies of the fish I did catch — confirming my suspicion that they are bottom feeding on these soon-to-be hatches — and my fishing chum found a salamander or two. I’ll keep you updated as things progress. John Gereau is managing editor of Denton Publications and an avid outdoorsman. He may be reached at johng@denpubs.com
