Fort Ti RAIN, RAIN (DON’T) GO AWAY! opens for season



‘America’s First Victory’ highlights opening weekend

Ti board says it will prosecute messy pet owners.

By Fred Herbst TICONDEROGA — Fort Ticonderoga will offer new exhibits and programs this season. The fort, site of America’s first victory in the Revolutionary War, opened for its 103rd season May 18. “We are so incredibly excited about the 2012 season and have so many wonderful opportunities for our visitors this year,” said Beth Hill, Fort Ticonderoga executive director. “We expect great success this season for the fort and our community.” A year ago the fort attracted more than 70,000 visitors. Highlighting the opening weekend will be “No Quarter,” a recreation of the capture of Fort Ticonderoga on May 10, 1775 — “America’s First Victory.” Visitors will explore the story from the perspectives of both the British garrison and the Green Mountain Boys and come face-to-face with the historical characters including Ethan Allen, Benedict Arnold, and Captain Noah Phelps, Connecticut Militia Captain and patriot spy.

Ti animal law to be enforced; dog feces a problem By Fred Herbst TICONDEROGA — Ticonderoga stinks! Literally. “I’m sick and tired of dog poop all over the town,” Supervisor Deb Malaney said. “We have a pooper scooper law and will enforce it.” Spring weather has encouraged many Ticonderoga residents, like Malaney, to begin walking. They’ve found dog feces throughout the community. “It’s a poor reflection on a community to have feces on sidewalks and in public areas,” Malaney said. “People need to be responsible pet owners. Nobody wants to deal with another person’s pet poop.” Malaney pointed out the town has placed containers in public parks with plastic bags for the convenience of pet owners. They can use the bags to collect pet feces and then place it in a trash can. “All they have to do is pick it (feces) up,” Malaney said. “We provide the bags and take away the trash. “Most people are responsible pet owners,” she added, “but others, apparently, need to be reminded about our law.” Section 8 of Ticonderoga's animal control law requires “any



owner or custodian of an animal, which animal has deposited its feces to be deposited upon any town property or upon the property of another, shall immediately remove such feces and cause it to be disposed of in a safe and sanitary manner.” The law provides for a fine of $25 to $50 for a first offense and fines of $50 to $100 for repeat offenses. Malaney said she has directed the Ti dog control officer and the Ti Police Department to enforce the law. The Ticonderoga law bans pets from Bicentennial Park, Veterans Park and the Black Point beach. Pets are allowed on other public properties. Pets must “be under the control of the owner or custodian at all times” the law reads, which means dogs must be leashed, Malaney said. Tonya Thompson, Ticonderoga town clerk, has also announced plans for a dog enumeration this summer. She noted all dogs, 3 months and older, must be licensed. Licenses cost $5 for neutered or spayed dogs and $15 for others. Licenses will be on sale during the May 15 rabies clinic.

Little League baseball a hit


undreds of children are playing Little League baseball this spring in our region. It’s a tradition that goes back decades. Hopefully, it continues for years to come. Little League baseball in our North Country communities teaches boys and girls the fundamentals of a great game — and much more. They’re learning teamwork, discipline, work habits, sportsmanship and respect. Most importantly, they’re having fun. Little League is a success. Plattsburgh just started its 55th season of Little League baseball. Ticonderoga is in its 61st season. The program is stronger today than ever. Baseball is a wonderful game, but the success of Little League is the result of the volunteers who make it happen — coaches, managers, league administrators and parents. These adults devote untold hours to make the program worthwhile for children. They should be lauded. Youth baseball has a long history in the United States. As early as the 1880s, leagues were formed for pre-teen children in New York, but they were affiliated with adult club teams and did not flourish. Children often played pickup baseball in streets or sandlots instead. In the 1920s, the American Legion formed a baseball program for teenage boys that still exists today. American schools also started baseball programs, but there was still a void for pre-teen boys who wanted to play in organized games. In 1938, Carl Stotz had the idea for an organized youth baseball league in his hometown of Williamsport, Pa. Stotz gathered several neighborhood children and experimented with different types of equipment and different field dimensions that summer. The program did not have a name and no organized games were played. In 1939, Stotz took the experiment a step further, enlisting the help of brothers George and Bert Bebble. They became the managers of the first three teams — Lycoming Dairy, Lundy Lumber and Jumbo Pretzel. Stotz also came up with a name — Little League. His idea was to provide baseball for the boys as a way to teach them the ideals of sportsmanship, fair play and teamwork. On June 6, 1939, in the first Little League game ever played, Lundy Lumber defeated Lycoming Dairy, 23-8. Little League baseball has become the world’s largest organized youth sports program. In the space of just six decades, Little League grew from three teams to nearly 200,000 teams, in all 50 U.S. states and more than 80 countries. And the basic goal remains the same as it did in 1939, to give the children a game that provides fundamental principles — sportsmanship, fair play and teamwork — they can use later in life to become good citizens.

Clean up help appreciated To the Times of Ti:


Spruce Up Day a success

Reflections Reflections

To the Times of Ti:

This letter is to say thank you to everyone who joined in and helped to spruce up our town. Thanks to Rick Merrill and all of the Ticonderoga High School students and teachers who cleaned up many bags of roadside trash for Earth Day. Thanks to Mike Moser and the Boy Scouts along with Joyce and Gerry Cooper who landscaped around the new emergency squad building and grounds in advance of their grand opening. Thanks to Sharon Reynolds and the United Way volunteers who cleaned up along the LaChute trail. Thanks to Bob Dedrick, Leslie Midgley, Ed Nolan and Dave Iuliano who repaired the lattice work on the gazebo in Bicentennial Park. Thanks to Pat and Anna Carney who cleaned up and removed weeds near the old Rite Aid building. Thanks to Doug Cossey, Joyce and Gerry Cooper, and Karla Vigloitti and her little helpers who weeded, pruned, and mulched at the Black Watch Library and the landscaped median across Carnegie Place from the library. Thanks to Good Point Recycling from Middlebury, Vt., who provided free recycling of old electronic equipment for folks that wanted to dispose of their old TVs, stereos and computers in an environmentally safe way. Thanks to Mark Moss, Mike Moser and the Boy Scouts who washed windows along Montcalm Street. Thanks to Norm Swift for the loan of his window washing equipment. Lastly, but most certainly not least, many thanks to the Knights of Columbus for serving lunch to the tired and hungry volunteers. John Bartlett Ticonderoga Montcalm St. Partnership

Trouble in Crown Point To the Times of Ti: The “Kosmider Krowd” is still on the hunt for any dirt or miss-step by the Crown Point town board. Like little Alinskyites, gathered in smoke filled basements plotting to “crush the opposition,” like Chicago “lite” community organizers/agitators, stirring the pot; they’ve become the ants at the picnic, gnats at sundown, yapping little ankle-biters, children not having their way, having a temper tantrum: to wit—a proctological nuisance! These brats, during the previous supervisor ’s stint in office, never offered advice or questioned Ms. Kosmider ’s authority, nor made veiled threats. Oh no, their silence was deafening. However, now they’ve found their voices and are interested in every burp or hiccup, every bit of minutiae that transpires at the monthly meetings. Why are they holding this town board to such a high standard but kept silent while the previous one floundered? Constructive criticism is welcomed and considered at every meeting; however the “Kosmider Krowd” is into destructive criticism in an attempt to undermine this board. This kind of bad behavior is why good people shy away from running for office. Who needs that nonsense? Just recall the words of Edmond Burke: “Evil men flourish when good men do nothing.” So may I give some words of encouragement to all the members of the town board, who are not perfect but striving to do their best…Illegitimi non Carborundum Mary Capek Crown Point

The Schroon Lake Chamber of Commerce would like to acknowledge the efforts of all the volunteers who picked up trash around town on May 12 for the Schroon Lake Spruce Up Day. The Lion’s Club, Teachers Association and the Schroon Lake B&B cleaned their respective Adopt-A-Highway sections. The Bay Road neighbors and the Troutbrook Road neighbors banded together and cleaned their streets as well. The Community Garden held a successful plant sale with the support of the Green Thumb Nursery in Fort Ann who supplied the plants. Several gardeners also weeded and prepared beds for planting. The weather was in our favor and we want to extend our heartfelt thanks to all of our volunteers. Sharon Piper Schroon Lake

Save Horace Nye To the Times of Ti: We are the parents of a Resident at the Horace Nye Nursing Home. The home has been a god send for us as it’s given us easy access to our daughter. She has been a Residents for 2 and a half years, before that for a year she lived at CVPH and Elizabethtown Community Hospital. Our daughter is a diabetic, she has been since she was 9 years old and she is now 50 years old. She has had many complications in her life due to her diabetes. She has eye problems, has lost both legs and is on dialysis. She has a son and was a stay at home mom. She lived alone until her kidneys started failing and had to go on dialysis. She became a patient of both hospitals after having an allergic reaction to a procedure to put a shunt in her arm for dialysis. She ended up with strokes and a heart attack, she was put on life support. After months in CVPH she was moved to Elizabethtown Community Hospital. The staff there are fabulous, they were very instrumental in bringing her to the point of being eligible to be a nursing home resident. She has come so far Since being in Horace Nye. The staff has helped to bring her to this point in her life where she can go around the nursing home and it has become her home. She knows everyone, staff and residents, they all know and love her. If not for Horace Nye and all the loving, support and caring they have giving and shown to her she would not have come so far in her recovery as she has. When I say staff it includes the whole building: Aides, Nurses, Cleaners, Kitchen, Laundry, Maintenance, Office and Dr. Moisan. We have some questions for you Supervisors that are in favor of selling Horace Nye and for Mr. Palmer that supports the sale also: what will happen to her and where will she go if she is not able to stay at Horace Nye? How many beds will they have for people like her? Will they take dialysis patients? Will they take people in her condition? If she gets really sick and needs to be hospitalized will her bed be saved for her, will she be able to return? She is in the safest most loving family home outside of her own family where she can possibly be taken care of 24 hours a day. Please reconsider your selling of our daughters home. Please let the people in our County decide this decision, give them a chance for their voices to be heard on what should become of this precious place these people call home.

Bullying a problem

Richard and Eleanor Sherman Mineville

To the Times of Ti: I wanted to take some time to inform you about two subjects I think something must be done about — bullying and cyber-bullying. Recently the issue of cyber-bullying was expressed through a movie called Cyber Bully which was thought would make bullies realize how bad they hurt other people. I want to inform you that it has not made bullies realize it. All my life I have been a victim of bullying. Now is the time for it to stop because it is terrible. I get bullied everyday either on Facebook or in school and it is usually both. I wanted to write to you and ask you if you would take the time to address this issue and hopefully changes can be made. The school and the state have a law about bullying and harassment . I have always been told if I am being bullied to report it to the school. When I get bullied in school nothing is done about it. I go home everyday wondering if I can survive another minute of the day. That is when it gets worse. I get home and go on Facebook and the trouble begins even more. I would like to ask if maybe you would push the issue of these subjects and if I would be able to if I could create a anti-bullying support group and a bullying prevention hotline where kids who are bullied could call and talk to someone who else who gets bullied so they know that they are not the only ones who get bullied. Also the hotline would help the victims of bullying talk to someone because they are talking to someone who knows what it feels like. Kyle McCoy Ticonderoga

Workers deserve a raise

by Joan Daby, Historian

Close call at Clonan


n December 1948 or January 1949, the following close call took place at Clonan Shaft, across from the Open Pit #21 Mine, in Mineville. There were two shafts there, one for the man cage and the other for the ore bucket. The following men were in the man cage, after the day’s work: Tom Callahan, foreman, Big George (?), Lester Daby, Bucky Hart, Albert Mayer and Warren “Bugs” Williams. As the man cage was being hoisted up, and was nearing the top, the pinion in the hoist broke and the cage started to descend rapidly. Bugs Williams told the men to “pick your feet up.” This was so that the sudden hard landing would not cause their legs and hips to be injured. The cage was narrow enough so that the men pressed their arms against the walls and lifted their feet off the floor. As the cage descended, the hoist man was pulling on the brake, a little at a time, to slow the cage up. The hoist man was successful at slowing and finally stopping the cage just before it hit the bottom. The men rushed out and, not having any other way out, they began to walk towards the Harmony Shaft hoist area, at the Don B building, about a mile away. It took them approximately 30 to 45 minutes to get there and by the time they got to this point, Tom Callahan was the only man that had a light working on his safety hat. They waited a short time for the man cage to descend to pick them up. The next day, as the men were descending into Clonan Shaft by the ore bucket, there was a sudden stop. The ice had built up over night onto an area on the sides of the shaft wall from the water leaking from the water-drilled ore. This prevented the bucket to go down any further. Suddenly, the ice gave way and the bucket started with a jerk, and one of the men said “here we go again.” But they continued down to their destination without any further mishap. By the end of the shift, the man cage had been repaired, so the men were able to ascend safely to the surface in that. Joan Daby is the retired town of Moriah historian. This story was related by her husband, Lester Daby.

To the Times of Ti: It’s about time the town of Ticonderoga is raising the trash disposal fees. Hopefully included in this increase, is a welldeserved salary increase for the wonderful and helpful workers at the landfill. Being a senior citizen and handicapped person, I would never be able to pull up and dispose of my trash without the wonderful assistance I receive from the employees at the landfill. They are a credit to the town and are absolutely precious. I would never be able to lead an independent life here in the North Country without these type of services provided by such caring individuals. They are worth far more than what I am sure they are being compensated for and I surely hope that they receive an increase also so they can make a decent living wage. If this is the first increase in 20 years for the landfill, I surely hope it hasn’t been the same for their salaries. I’m sure everyone who uses the landfill would agree with me, that the employees there show a real interest in helping the citizens (senior or otherwise) and make it a pleasure to go there. I could never thank them enough and are one of the biggest assets that the town of Ticonderoga has. I, for one, do not mind a price increase for the service that I receive. Janice Vogel Hague

Nobody Does It Better! TIMES OF TI


By Katherine Clark TICONDEROGA — The Ticonderoga area will soon have a dirt track for residents to use and take off-road vehicle rider safety courses. The town planning board approved Jeremy Treadway’s plans for the dirt track at their regular meeting on May 2. The facility will be located at 1207 state Route 9N behind the Treadway Car Wash. It will be open seven days a week and will be usable by riders of all ability levels. Rider and safety courses will be offered as early as this summer and will range from beginners to advanced rider courses. Joe Vilardo, a member of the planning board, said the board approved the plans for the track after Treadway provided engineering designs that would reduce sound and dust concerns. “There will be 10-foot berms built with trees on top to reduce the noise of the track,” Vilardo said. “They have gone above and beyond what we requested.” Chairman of the Planning Board Lee Peters said the board approved the plans with a special use permit dependent on meeting the sound maintenance conditions and dust control. Peters said the track will be a benefit for the community. With a high population of all-terrain vehicle and dirt bike riders in the area, Peters said, the track will fit the needs of the riders. “I think Jeremy has done a great job setting the plans for this project that will serve the community,” Peters said. Treadway has been making arrangements for the track’s construction over the past year and has just begun putting up the fences that will surround the track. Construction will begin as soon as the ground is dry enough, he said. Treadway said he hopes the track will help stimulate local tourism and by next year he hopes to start holding competitions at the track. “There isn’t a track in a two-hour radius of here,” Treadway said. “Motocross is definitely a family sport everyone can get involved in and come for the day to ride and take the classes they need for safety.” With more people having a reason to come to Ticonderoga, Treadway said, it will benefit his business and encourage visitors to stay and contribute to area businesses.

“If people are coming here with their families to practice and compete, they are going to eat at our restaurants, shop in our stores and stay in our hotels,” Treadway said. Treadway said he hopes the track will be a benefit to area youth. The track could serve as an alternative to getting into trouble, he believes “Our facilities will be monitored at all times,” he said. “Our track will be substance free and very professional. “Right now there is nothing around for the area kids to do and this could be something good for them to get involved with and inspire them to work hard and have fun,” he said. Riders will have to bring their own motorcycles and have their bikes and equipment inspected by a Treadway or a staff member before entering the track. A rider less than 18 years old must have a parent or legal guardian with them at all times. A minor release form must be signed, completely filled out, and dated for youth to attend.

Ti Historical Society to host open house reception New York Heritage Weekend May 19

By Fred Herbst

Wicker and Montcalm streets, it is home to several exhibits highlighting community history. Moses built the house as a repository for the purpose of perpetuating “American Traditions in History and the Fine Arts,” and it served in this capacity for many years as the NYSHA “Headquarters House,” although it can no longer claim this title. The Georgian mansion is a replica of Thomas Hancock’s (uncle to John Hancock) Beacon Hill residence built in 1737 and 1741, and demolished in 1863. Moses learned the paper industry from the ground up, eventually building and purchasing mills which he consolidated into the Strathmore Paper Company. Never forgetting his rural beginnings, he began to make considerable donations to many Ticonderoga charitable and educational enterprises, including

Valley View Cemetery Chapel, Liberty Monument, Moses-Ludington Hospital, the Community Building, and the Hancock House. In building the Hancock House he achieved one of his earliest lifetime ambitions to establish a museum with a library that would make Ticonderoga a focal point for public interest in the region's fascinating and nationally significant history. The Hancock House Museum and Research Library was dedicated in 1926. The Ticonderoga Historical Society today manages this elegant structure as a regional museum and reference library. There are exhibits on all four floors of the Hancock House. The modern library houses a large collection of regional material on civic, social and economic elements and also has one of the largest collections of genealogical resource materials in the region.

TICONDEROGA — New York Heritage Weekend will be observed in Ticonderoga. The Ticonderoga Historical Society will mark the event during an open house reception Saturday, May 19, 1 to 3 p.m. at the Hancock House. Admission is free and discounts will be given on select items in the gift shop. New York Heritage Weekend is a statewide event highlighting heritage and cultural destinations throughout the state. “In our region, many of these organizations are seasonal, have not yet opened and are therefore not participants,” June Curtis, Ticonderoga Historical Society trustee, said. “The Hancock House, home of the Ticonderoga Historical Society, is open all year long and therefore is uniquely positioned to participate just as it has since the inaugural year in 2010. “The society has chosen to coordinate their spring open house with Heritage Weekend as a kick-off to the busy spring and summer seasons ahead,” she said. This year’s themes at the Hancock House are the Civil War Sesquicentennial, the 150th Anniversary of the War Between the States; the Battle of Plattsburgh, War of 1812; and the QuarterMillennial Celebration, Ticonderoga’s own 250th anniversary of its settlement in 1764. “One of the newest exhibits highlights the work of the early surveyors and their mapping skills,” Curtis said. Ticonderoga Arts, located downstairs in the meeting room at the Hancock House, will host a gallery preview during New Ticonderoga’s Cub Scouts from Troop 72 spent a day hiking Rogers Rock and enjoying a picnic dinner on the shores of Lake George. They were led on York Heritage Weekend. The official Ticonderoga Arts grand the hike by Boy Scouts and troop leader Mike Moser. Among the skills learned were compass skills and the scouting concept “leave no trace.” opening will be in June. “Please make the Hancock House part of your weekend activity as we welcome spring and look forward to greeting visitors, new and old alike, during the summer ahead,” Curtis said.

In Loving Memory

Bill Endres 5/1/47 - 5/21/09 Husband, Father, Great Friend


Offer expires 5/31/12





Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free I’m following the path God laid for me. I took His hand when I heard him call, I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay another day To laugh, to love, to work, or play. Tasks left undone must stay that way, I found that place at the close of day. If my parting has left a void, Then fill it with remembered joy. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss Ah, yes, these things, I too, will miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life’s been full; I savored so much Good friends, good times, loved one’s touch. Perhaps my time seemed all to brief; Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your heart and share with me God wanted me now; he set me free.

10 - Times of Ti • Ticonderoga

May 19, 2012

Ticonderoga from page 1 There were school programs on Friday. At 9 p.m. Saturday, May 19, a re-enactment of the attack will be held. Gates will open at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, May 20, the aftermath of the attack will be explored. This season Fort Ti will offer new programs, living history weekends, events, exhibits, gardens and a six-acre corn maze designed in the shape of the fort. “Visitors will immerse themselves in nearly 2,000 acres of exquisite landscape at Fort Ticonderoga and experience the story of how the blood spilled to create an empire in the French and Indian War resulted in the struggle for liberty and America’s independence a generation later,” Hill said. “Fort Ticonderoga is a family destination and a center of learning,” she added. “A visit is an interactive, multi-disciplined experience. It’s exploring the beautiful gardens, finding adventure in our events, marching with the Fife and Drum Corps and learning about a historic trade. It’s a walk through the restored fort, a stroll overlooking Lake Champlain and the Green Mountains of Vermont, and an afternoon in our exhibit galleries exploring our premier collections.” This year Fort Ticonderoga will focus on 1775. “Benedict Arnold is a hero at Fort Ticonderoga this year,” Hill said. “Visitors to Fort Ticonderoga will be immersed in the year 1775 when Benedict Arnold and Ethan Allen secured the fort and America’s first victory of the Revolution. Daily interpretive programs will engage visitors in the moment where they can learn to ply an 18th-century trade and thrill at the pageantry of arms as

Minute Men become soldiers of the newlyformed American army.” Fort Ticonderoga boasts a new exhibit, “Bullets & Blades: The Weapons of America’s Colonial Wars and Revolution,” this summer. It showcases nearly 100 weapons from Fort Ticonderoga’s collection, including many never-before-seen recent acquisitions exhibited together to illustrate the diversity of muskets, pistols, swords and related weaponry used in America and at Ticonderoga through the American Revolution. The “Art of War: Ticonderoga as Experienced through the Eyes of America's Great Artists” will continue in 2012. It exhibits 50 of the museum’s most important artworks. Fort Ticonderoga helped give birth to the Hudson River School of American Art with Thomas Cole’s pivotal 1826 work, “Gelyna” or a “View Near Ticonderoga,” the museum’s most important 19th-century masterpiece to be featured in the exhibit. Several new seminars, workshops and author series will be presented this season. The fort’s author series begins on June 3 with Eliot A. Cohen, author of “Conquered into Liberty: Two Centuries of Battles along the Great Warpath that Made the American Way of War.” New this year, Fort Ticonderoga will highlight Lake Champlain and Lake George in a “Lakes Conference” Aug. 11-12. Also new in 2012 will be “Chocolate Covered History: A Spirited Weekend of History, Chocolate and Wine and Spirits” Oct. 1213. The King’s Garden, one of North America’s oldest gardens and the largest public garden in the region, will open on June 1 and offer daily tours and garden-related pro-

grams. The formal garden — along with the Discovery Gardens, the Garrison Garden, Children’s Garden and Three Sisters Garden — offer opportunities to learn about plants and explore how agriculture on the Fort Ticonderoga peninsula has changed since French troops planted the first gardens in 1756. A new program, “Growing up with Gardening: Sow, Grow & Know!” will be offered in July and August for children ages 3 to 8. “The Heroic Maze: A Corn Maze Adventure” will continue in its second year. Visitors will find clues connected to Fort Ticonderoga’s history while they explore a six-

acre corn maze designed in the shape of Fort Ticonderoga. The corn maze opens Aug. 15. Fort Ticonderoga is open daily through Oct. 18 from 9:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. General admission to Fort Ticonderoga, a private non-profit organization, is $17.50 for adults, $14 for people age 62 and older and $8 for children 5 to 12. Children age 4 and younger are admitted free of charge. Friends of Fort Ticonderoga and Ticonderoga Resident Ambassador Pass holders are also admitted free. For more information go online at or call 585-2821.

Ti chamber plans annual dinner June 15 at Silver Bay By Fred Herbst TICONDEROGA — “A Royal Affair” is coming. That’s the theme of the 10th annual Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce fund raising dinner and auction that will be held Friday, June 15, at the Silver Bay YMCA’s Gullen Lounge. “Last year was a great success,” said Matthew Courtright, chamber executive director. “Our members, area businesses and community members have been a wonderful support every year of the chamber ’s annual fundraiser and it is greatly appreciated. We encourage sponsorship for the 2012 annual fundraiser.” “A Royal Affair” will begin with appetizers at 6 p.m. followed by a buffet dinner at 7 p.m., a silent auction, a limited live auction, music and dancing. Tickets are $42 a person. The tickets include appetizers, dinner, desserts, beer, wine, soft drinks and gratuity.

The menu includes fresh garden salad, ciabatta bread with a red pepper flake infused olive oil for dipping, baby carrots, twice baked potatoes, chicken, pasta filled with mushrooms and topped with a Mediterranean pesto, roasted beef shank and an assortment of desserts. Coffee and tea will be available. Early reservations are suggested since space is limited. Reservations can be made by contacting the chamber at 585-6619 or Assisting in this years event as the auctioneers for the evening will be Bruce Zeman and his dog Hobbes from “The Wake Up Crew with Bruce & Hobbes,” which is a morning talk show on 92.1 WVTK radio. “We are thrilled to have Bruce and Hobbes join us for this event,” Courtright said. “We are excited for them to be this year ’s auctioneers. This will certainly be the first time to have morning radio show hosts and a dog as our auctioneers. “The goal for this year is to have our annu-

Hague from page 1 Marine veteran, and Thomas James, a Vietnam Air Force veteran. “This year we are honored to have two military veterans as guest speakers,” said Madeline Pelkey. “They will share with us their views on the true meaning of Memorial Day based upon their own experiences. The dedication will be complete with drum rolls, musket salutes, Taps and the roar of the canon as it fires out over the lake. This, you won’t want to miss. “It’s very emotional,” Pelkey said. “There’s not a dry eye in the place; it’s beautiful.” The observance is sponsored by the Hague Senior Citizens Club. Pelkey is chairwoman of the organizing committee. The Memorial Day service will be at 3:30 p.m. and will cap a day of activities at the town beach on Lake George. Throughout the day FunFest will be held in the town park. It’ll begin at 10 a.m. with a dog show under the direction of Linda Benway and Leslie Midgley. Registration for the dog show will begin at 9 a.m. It will include pets for adoption from the Westport SPCA and Ticonderoga’s Angel Connection. For

al fundraiser dinner and auction be the TACC premier fundraising event supporting the ongoing efforts of the chamber,” Courtright said. “Continued dedication and support enables us to serve, market and promote the Ticonderoga area including Ticonderoga, Crown Point, Hague, Moriah, and Putnam as well as surrounding areas. “In addition we are able to plan and host free community events, events that draw area visitors, assist area organizations with their events and projects, provide small business support and resources, business referrals, answer many community and visitor questions and requests, send visitor area information packets upon request, keep an online calendar of events, as well as an array of benefits for our members and more.” The chamber is seeking sponsors for the annual event. There are several levels of support — Diamond at $750, Platinum at $500, Gold at $250, Silver at $125 and Bronze for contributions less than $125. All donations must be received by June 1.

information call Midgley at 585-6666. Magic Patti will perform at 10:45 a.m.; Eat, Sleep & Funk Jazz will be in concert at 11:45 a.m. and the Cambridge Band will play at 12:30 p.m. Also taking part will be Nancy Carlson of All About Critters in Ticonderoga. She’ll present “Unwanted Pets.” Throughout the day there will be WOKO radio personality Steve Pelkey, craft demonstrations, a white elephant sale, demonstrations by the Champlain Valley K-9 Search & Rescue Team, an exhibit by Up Yonda Farm, food concessions and children’s games and face painting. The “Memorial Game” will be played all day to raise money in support of the annual observance. The traditional Memorial Day parade will begin at 2 p.m. at the Hague Community Center on Route 8. It will proceed to the town park. The parade theme is “God Bless America.” Bertha Dunsmore will be parade grand marshal. “Bertha does so much behind the scenes in Hague,” Pelkey said. “She’s been very involved in the community over the years. Everyone knows Bertha, but not everyone knows all that she does. We’re thrilled to honor her.” The parade will feature more than 100 units with six bands, floats, clowns, classic cars and more.

Sponsor donations can be mailed or dropped off to the chamber office during normal business hours. Arrangements can also be made to have contributions picked up. All sponsors will receive recognition for their contribution, support, and dedication during the evening in a variety of ways as well as through press releases, a full page ad in the Times of Ti after the event and additional promotion in our chamber communications throughout the year. Courtright promised “A Royal Affair” will be an enjoyable experience. “Enjoy the evening overlooking majestic Lake George from the covered porch and Victorian lounge while you browse the many silent and live auction items,” he said. “Party Productions USA will provide ambiance during the dinner hour which will be followed by dancing. “The chamber proudly serves the businesses of the area, but is also just as proud to continue to work to better the community and area as a whole,” Courtright said.

“The first 22 units will all be military-veteran related,” Pelkey said. “There will no doubt this is a Memorial Day parade.” A highlight of the parade will be the participation of the Battenkill Joey Clowns. The 20-member clowning troupe is comprised of people with developmental disabilities and staff at Battenkill Community Service. “I’m really excited to have them,” Pelkey said of the Joeys. “It’s an activity that has changed the lives of the people who take part. It’s inspiring.” Pelkey acknowledged the financial support of the community for the annual Memorial Day celebration and observance. “We thank all who have contributed to our efforts,” she said. “Truly your support is a welcome addition to our budget which we tightly control. You do make a difference.” People wishing to donate toward the event can make checks payable to Hague Senior Citizens Club Parade Account and mail them to the Hague Community Center, PO Box 509, Hague 12836. Joining Pelkey on the Memorial Day committee are Mike and Maureen Cherubini, Emily Cobb, Pat Hintze, Joan Steitz, Ray Snyder, Jon and Jan Hanna, Gladys Graser, Diane Faranick and Bertha Dunsmore.

Crown Point assessment battle continues Lawsuit filed against town board

By Fred Herbst CROWN POINT — The assessment battle in Crown Point did not end when a new town administration took office earlier this year. The latest move in the on-going fight is a lawsuit filed by two members of the Crown Point Board of Assessment Review whose appointments were rescinded after the new town board took office in January. The suit, filed in State Supreme Court of Essex County, asks that Glenn Russell and Ronald Clarke be restored to the board of assessment review and that the appointments of two new members who took their places be nullified. A Board of Assessment Review hears cases in which property owners dispute their tax assessments. The BAR has the authority to change an assessment in response to such challenges. It meets once a year on Grievance Day, this year on May 23. Russell and Clarke were appointed to the review panel Dec. 8, 2011, by a 3-2 vote. Voting for them were Supervisor Bethany Kosmider and trustees Yvonne DuShane and Bob Patnode. Opposing them were trustees

Tom Walters and Charlie Mazurowski. After Kosmider and DuShane left office, the new board that now includes Supervisor Charles Harrington and trustee Tara Peters rescinded those appointments Jan. 5 and named Joseph Duval and Douglas Woods to the board of assessment review. The vote was 4-1 with Harrington, Peters, Walters and Mazurowski voting yes. Patnode was opposed. Ticonderoga attorney Dominick Viscardi, representing Russell and Clarke, said the Jan. 5 action is illegal. “The members of a board of assessment review can only be removed for cause — and then only after a hearing,” Viscardi, a former state supreme court judge, said. “When the new board rescinded these appointments at their organizational meeting Jan. 5 they didn’t follow the law. They had no cause; they held no hearing.” Crown Point Supervisor Harrington did not return calls seeking comment on the suit. After getting legal advice, Viscardi said, the town board realized it had made a mistake. So, Feb. 9 the town board rescinded its Jan. 5 action. It then voted to remove Russell and Clarke from the review board because they had not taken the oath of office within 30 days of their appointment. That action is also illegal, Viscardi contends. First, the town board moved against

Russell and Clarke on Jan. 5, 28 days after they were appointed. Second, board of assessment review members routinely take their oaths on Grievance Day. Viscardi has filed an affidavit from current Crown Point Board of Assessment Review member Fred French, who said in his 25 years on that board he has always taken his oath of office only on Grievance Day. Viscardi also said he could find no evidence of any review board oaths ever being administered in Crown Point. To make certain his clients were properly sworn in Viscardi had them take the oath of office from Essex County Clerk Joe Provoncha Feb. 21. However, Viscardi said, Crown Point Clerk Linda Woods has refused to accept the oaths administered by Provoncha. Linda Woods is named in the lawsuit along with the town board. “I really think they (Crown Point town board members) did this just to show the Kosmider administration that they’re in control now,” Viscardi said. “It’s a game of ‘I’ve got ya’.” Harrington and Peters were elected last fall following a bitter fight over assessment practices that divided the community. Kosmider, DuShane and trustee Bob Patnode voted last year to eliminate the town’s elected three assessors in favor of an appointed sole assessor. The vote was 3-2 with

trustees Tom Walters and Charlie Mazurowski in opposition. That sparked controversy in the town with incumbent assessors Carl Ross, Stephen MacKay and Glenn Porter promising to drive Kosmider, DuShane and Patnode from office. They succeeded in replacing Kosmider with Harrington and DuShane with Peters. Patnode was not up for re-election. “The members of the board of assessment review really have very little authority,” Viscardi said. “They meet once a year to hear assessment grievances, that’s it. There’s no political benefit to having control of the board of assessment review. “They (town board members) are still upset with Bethany Kosmider and are taking it out on my clients,” Viscardi said. “They don’t want to believe that anything Bethany did was right.” Viscardi cites several state laws he believes the Crown Point town board violated and lists court cases in support of his clients. “I don’t think anything in this is difficult to understand,” the attorney said. “They are violating the powers entrusted to them.” With Grievance Day approaching May 23, who will sit on Crown Point’s Board of Assessment Review this year? “That’s a good question,” Viscardi said. “I can tell you my guys (Russell and Clarke) are valid members of that board.”

Sunrise service slated on Lake Champlain Bridge May 20 in Crown Point CROWN POINT — Churches from both sides of the the new Lake Champlain Bridge in Crown Point hold a sunrise church service Sunday, May 20, at 6 a.m. Church members will meet on their perspective sides and begin the walk to the center of the new span that links Crown Point and Chimney Point, Vt. “It is a fitting tribute to recall that it was the faith commu-

nity that initially came together on Oct. 25, 2009,” said Pastor David Hirtle of the First Congregational Church in Crown Point. “On that day, on both sides of the old bridge, met at 3 p.m. to ask God to sustain our two communities as well as to mitigate the pain and loss caused by the sudden closure of this integral link between our communities/states.” As the two groups meet at the top of the Bridge on Sunday, May 20t, they will join together for a time of celebration and worship. “This special service will not only observe the deep roots

Crown Point from page 1 The theme for this year’s celebration and observance is “Memories.” “Every year as we begin to consider themes for our event we instinctively go to remembering,” said Jodi Gibbs of the Crown Point Memorial Day committee. “Remember and honor those who have served and are serving our wonderful nation. “At the same time we recognize that participants in our parade always request a theme, so we try to keep with tradition while slightly altering the terminology,” she continued. “This year our committee decided to use ‘Memories’ to encompass what each of us holds dear — whether you are remembering a lost love one, the original Lake Champlain Bridge or a family member that isn’t able to be home this year to celebrate with you.” The 2012 Crown Point Memorial Day celebration and observance will begin on Sunday with an ecumenical church service at 11 a.m. in Veterans Park. At noon the park will open with amusement rides, food, STORAGE UNITS & OUTSIDE vendors and games. STORAGE AVAILABLE!

The service will be led by clergy from both sides of the bridge.

Sonim Cava Brut

This dry red blend has aromas of pepper and dark fruit. On the palate is a mix of black pepper, brambles, cedar and blackberry, with medium tannins through a lingering finish. It’s a well-made wine, straightforward but with enough complexity to keep it interesting. Serve with roast beef or steak.

This sparkler, produced from 40% Parellada, 30% Macabeu and 30% Xarel-lo, three indigenous Spanish grapes, had a much more pronounced leesy/nutty nose with vanilla and herbal tones. In the mouth, the Sonim leans much more to citrusy fruit tones, especially lime zest. It finishes dry and tangy with good persistence.

celebrate the official start of summer by involving the entire Schroon Lake area community and bringing them together at the lake,” said Shelby Davis, event organizer. “This is a special weekend for Schroon Lake. It’s when many second home owners and snow birds return to open up their camps.” The Memorial Day weekend events will feature a boat parade and blessing of the fleet, a Summer Expo on Main Street, a “Tribute To The Troops” concert, a Lions Club auction and more. Although not technically the weekend, events will get under way Thursday, May 24, with an open mic night at Witherbee’s Carriage House. Saturday’s activities will include a community garage sale, a non-motorized boat chain across the lake at 9 a.m., the blessing of boats at 9:30 a.m., a used book sale by the Friends of the Schroon Lake Library 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the health center basement, a “Down to Earth Garden Club” for children at the Schroon Lake Library at 10:30 a.m., the Summer Expo 2 to 8 p.m., a motorized boat parade and blessing of the fleet at 2 p.m., a yoga class at 5 p.m., a zumba class and demonstration at 6 p.m. and the “Tribute to the Troops” concert at the town bandstand. The concert will begin at 11:30 a.m. with songs for children by Curtis Becraft followed by folk songs and sing alongs by Becraft at 1 p.m., a performance by Mark Piper at 3 p.m., the Gregson Brothers at 4:30 p.m. and The Stephen L. Smith Band at 7:30 p.m. “This is the weekend when many put their boats in water,” Davis said. “And that inspired the idea to have the blessing of the boats.” Davis said there will be two blessings, for non-motorized and motorized watercraft. Local clergy will be stationed on both land and boats in the lake to bless the fleets. “The blessing of the canoes and kayaks will take place at 9:30 a.m. and the blessing of the motorized fleet will take place at around 2 p.m.,” she said. “We want boat owners to get into the spirit of the weekend and decorate their boats. The (Schroon Lake Chamber of Commerce) chamber will recognize the Funniest Boat, Best Pirate Ship and Most Adirondack Style Boat for decorations. And there is no cost to be included in the boat parades.” The Summer Expo on Main Street will feature vendors. Main Street businesses are also being encouraged to offer specials for the duration of the weekend. “The Summer Expo will be an ideal opportunity for area businesses, arts and crafters, non-profits and community organizations to showcase what they do,” Davis said. “Booths have already been secured by service groups like the Schroon Lake EMS and the Warren County Sheriff ’s Department. The expo will also feature a free zumba class and demonstration by Cathy Peace and a Sun Salutation yoga class by True North Yoga Studio owner Deb Philp.” Davis said the townwide garage sale, which will run over the three-day weekend, will also bring a lot of people to Schroon. “Everyone loves a good garage sale,” Davis said. “We will have maps both online and hard copies for folks to navigate their way around town.” Registration forms for the Summer Expo, boat parades and the garage sales are available at the Schroon Lake Cham-

Good & Bad Cholesterol...

Know YOUR Numbers Good cholesterol (HDL) – the higher the number, the happier your body. Bad cholesterol (LDL) – the lower the number, the lower the risk for heart disease. Add your LDL – Bad cholesterol and your HDL, good cholesterol together… If it is over 150 you are at risk of heart disease. Ask your doctor about lowering your cholesterol through a healthier diet and regular exercise. Eating high fiber foods like oatmeal, apples, fish, nuts, berries, broccoli and celery, low fat dairy products and substituting olive oil for butter can be simple steps to a healthier heart.

Essex County honors fire chiefs Moriah, Mineville chiefs cited By Keith Lobdell MORIAH — Two local fire chiefs were honored for their service by the Essex County Department of Emergency Services May 7. During the monthly board meeting of the county board of supervisors, Emergency Services Director Don Jaquish, along with Moriah Supervisor Tom Scozzafava, presented resolutions of appreciation to Moriah Fire Department Chief Ralph Jaquish and Mineville/Witherbee Fire Department Chief Paul Tromblee. Both have announced that they are retiring from service. Jaquish had been the fire chief in Moriah for the past 53 years and is believed to be the longest continually serving fire chief in the state of New York. “Ralph has been a good personal friend of mine and has even served on the town board,” Scozzafava said. “We appreciate all that you have done for our community.” Tromblee had served as the chief for Mineville/Witherbee for the past 17 years. “We congratulate you on your retirement and enjoy yourself,” Scozzafava said. Tromblee’s wife, Nancy, has served as a fire commissioner for 25 years.” Scozzafava also said that he is proud of the way the three local departments — Moriah, Mineville/Witherbee and Port Henry — work together. “We are fortunate to have three fire departments,” Scozzafava said. “Our community should be very thankful that we have these three departments that all work well together for the community.” Tromblee took a moment to thank the board of supervisors for its work to improve the communications systems in the county. “You are recognizing us today, but I thank you, the board of supervisors, for making the decision to improve the radio system in Essex County,” Tromblee said. “We are nothing unless we have a good radio system, and I thank you for making that hard decision because I know that it was an issue. Thank you for helping us.”

It is sponsored by the Town of Moriah Youth Commission. Roe Pond will be closed to all fishermen May 23 through the tournament. For more information call Brian Venne at 546-7704.

School budgets in region approved by voters Ticonderoga, Schroon Lake, Moriah, Moriah Crown Point, Putnam plans pass Moriah voters approved the district’s 2012-13 budget, 277-

By Fred Herbst TICONDEROGA — Residents approved area school district budgets for 2012-13 during voting May 15. All the area budget plans meet the new state tax cap.

Ticonderoga Ticonderoga voters approved the district’s 2012-13 budget, 562-416. The 2012-13 Ti budget totals $17,849,823. That’s $1,148,124 — 6 percent — less than the present budget of $18,997,947. The tax levy for 2012-13 is $10,316,732. That’s $354,774 —3.5 percent — more than the current tax levy of $9,961,958. The 3.5 percent tax increase is well below the state tax cap for Ticonderoga, which is 9 percent. Ticonderoga started the 2012-13 budget process with a deficit because of the loss of nearly $1.7 million in “one shot” funding that was used in the current spending plan. Gone are $700,000 in state Excel aid, $310,000 in employee concessions, $300,000 in local fund balance, $180,000 in federal stimulus money and $87,000 from the employee retirement fund. Compounding that problem is the fact Ticonderoga now receives $1 million less in state aid that in it three years ago. Helping Ti close its deficit and meet the tax cap are concessions by Ticonderoga teachers, administrators and staff. A salary freeze will save the district $728,000. It’s the third consecutive year district employees have made concessions, Superintendent John McDonald pointed out. Those concessions total about $1.2 million. McDonald said Ticonderoga is one of just four of the state’s 700 districts to have employee concessions three straight years. The budget also cuts several positions, totalling $132,000. McDonald noted the district has eliminated 20 jobs — 10 percent of its workforce — in the past three years. Ti has 170 employees. Ticonderoga also plans on moving students from Champlain Valley Educational Services back to the local school. That will save the district about $300,000. Other major reductions in spending include $213,000 in transportation, $115,000 in equipment, $54,500 in supplies and $31,000 in summer school. Virtually every line item in the budget has been reduced. Voters also elected three members to the board of education. Incumbents Fred LaVallie, 609 votes, John Lenhart, 583, and Jim Wells, 631, were re-elected. Mary Meserve received 486 votes.

Schroon Lake Schroon Lake voters approved the district’s 2012-13 budget, 373-245. The 2012-13 budget totals $7,243,314.00. That’s $159,065 less than the present budget. Taxes in 2012-13 will increase 2.97 percent. That meets Schroon Lake’s tax cap of 2.99 percent. To help the district stay under the tax cap the Schroon Lake Teachers Association agreed to forego its contractual 2 percent pay increase next year and all district employees switched insurance plans, a move that should save the district insurance premium costs over time. The staffing reductions included in the 2012-2013 school budget are primarily due to decreased student enrollment, according to Superintendent Bonnie Finnerty. A new master teaching schedule no longer has students in grades 7-9 separating into two sections. This realignment helps keep program offerings intact while maintaining class sizes. A proposition to purchased two 30-passenger school buses at a cost not to exceed $88,500 passed, 372-247. Incumbent John Armstrong received 278 votes to win a fiveyear term on the school board. Dana Shaughnessy got 214 votes to claim an unexpired four-year team. Bruce Murdock got 207 votes, Donald Miller 127, Richrad Kuzmiak 122, Chris Savarie 180, Marty Welch 2 and Pat Savarie 1.

83. The 2012-13 budget totals $15,170,738. That’s 9.49 percent more than the current budget of $13,856,410. Superintendent Bill Larrow is quick to point out almost all of the budget increase is because of a building project that is entirely paid by the state. That increase will not be paid by local taxpayers. The 2012-13 tax levy is $3,692,813. That’s a 1.95 percent increase from the current tax levy of $3,622,121. Moriah’s state-mandated tax cap is 2.36 percent. Staying within the tax cap was a challenge, Larrow said, because of costs the district has no control of. Employee health insurance costs will jump $68,400 next academic year and teacher retirement costs will increase $61,921. School administrators and confidential employees will get 2 percent pay hikes and non-instructional workers will get 1.5 percent pay raises next year. The teacher’s union, which has not had a contract for two years, is still in negotiations with the district. Employees expenses account for 26 percent — $4 million — of the entire proposed $15.1 spending plan. To stay within the state tax cap, the district is eliminating one teaching position through attrition and made across the board cuts in every area. The district is also applying a $519,000 fund balance from the current budget to next year. A proposition to buy two 64-passenger buses for an amount not to exceed $190,000 passed, 274-90. Voters also elected three school board members. Jim Stahl, Stacie Jaquish and Erica Kazlo, all incumbents, ran unopposed. Stahl received 276 votes, Kazlo 280 and Jaquish 285.

Crown Point Crown Point voters approved the district’s 2012-13 budget, 95-18. The 2012-13 Crown Point Central School budget is less than district spending four years ago. The 2012-13 Crown Point budget totals $6,135,688. That’s an increase of $50,922 — less than 1 percent — from the present spending plan of $6,084,766. The 2012-13 tax levy is $1,515,355. That’s an increase of $26,355 — 1.77 percent — from the current tax levy. The state tax cap for Crown Point is 5.8 percent. The budget includes several major savings from the current spending plan. It includes $60,000 in employee health insurance concessions, $80,000 in salary reductions because of five retirements and a $100,000 cut in special education costs because of declining enrollment. Crown Point offered eligible staff a monetary incentive, depending on their years of service, to retire this year. Four teachers and a teacher’s aide accepted. There are also a few additions in the budget. The spending plan calls for a new college-level math class, a junior varsity boys basketball team and the addition of a lunch monitor position. The budget also includes pay increases of 2 to 4 percent for employees. Voters also elected a member to the board of education. Incumbent Kimberly Woods is not seeking re-election. June Glebus won that seat with 88 votes..

Putnam Putnam voters approved the district’s 2012-13 budget, 80-24. The 2012-13 district spending plan totals $2,193,248. That’s a $40,934 — 1.9 percent — increase from the current budget of $2,152,314. Putnam’s 2012-13 tax levy is $1,689,033. That’s a $44,146 — 1.9 percent — increase from the present tax levy of $1,644,887. The state tax cap for Putnam Central School is 2.79 percent. Superintendent Matt Boucher said the spending plan has no major changes — increases or decreases — from the present budget. Putnam voters also filled one seat on the board of education. Gerry Gendron won the seat with 69 votes. Cynthia Floor had 32.

The prices being paid for some furbearing animals, like the muskrat pictured above, are the highest many trappers have seen in years.

Fur prices trending upward


used to love to trap. Some of my most fond memories growing up in the Adirondacks involve wading around bug-infested beaver meadows, a packbasket laden with steel traps tugging on my shoulders. Trapping taught me responsibility and work ethic. I’d get up hours before school to check my sets and then return after, spending my evenings stretching and drying pelts under the dull glow of basement lights. It also taught me respect for the animals. My brother and I always kept accurate records of animals we harvested to leave seed for the next season, treating it as the management tool it was designed to be. Later, when I was old enough to drive, my memories are filled with my brother, uncles and I riding along dusty backcountry roads to nowhere, stopping occasionally to trek into the woods to check sets. It was a constant learning experience and the perfect diversion to all that can lead a teenager astray. It was also fairly lucrative. I put away a couple thousand dollars my senior year of high school, money I greatly valued during my first year of college. My now deceased Uncle Eddie used to say: “You’ll always have a dollar in your pocket when you’re trapping.” And, I always seemed to. But, over time, I grew away from trapping for a whole host of reasons, time management being one. Perhaps the single largest reason though was that the bottom fell out of the fur market. While I was never in it for the money, prices offered by fur buyers just didn’t seem to justify taking the pelt. That, however, is beginning to change. Prices paid at fur auctions around the state and internationally during the 2011-12 season have been steadily increasing on nearly every furbearer species. Trappers have not seen a return on their investment like this in decades. In March, the Fur Harvesters Auction held in North Bay, Ontario, saw prices trending upward across the board. Beaver advanced 30 percent over January levels, with an average blanket fetching $44. Otter and muskrat continued to climb as well, with prices averaging $99 and $11.60, respectively. Land trappers made out too, with red fox fetching $63 on average; grey fox $38; raccoon $14 and coyote a whopping $49. Fisher also fared well at $98 and marten brought a cool $116. Also of interest is that nearly 100 percent of the inventory was purchased, another indication of a healthy market. That is the type of market I remember from the 1980s, and some trappers I have spoken with are reporting personal bests with price averages. Fur buyers are attributing the stimulated market to an increase in the use of real fur in fashion trends, especially in foreign markets. Adding to the surging prices is stronger competition among fur-buying countries due to an increase of new countries entering the marketplace. Previously, countries like Ukraine and Belarus did not have a presence in the bidding process. From what fur buyers are saying, the surging prices shouldn’t end anytime soon — and next year could be even better. I may just have to dust off the old packbasket.

pring is in the air, and so is art! The NCSPCA would like to remind you of the upcoming “Artists for Animals,” art show, hosted by The Lake Placid Center for the Arts to benefit the North Country SPCA, from June 1 through June 16. The show’s theme is “works of art with animals in mind,” and will feature paintings, drawings, sculpture, and other media by national and local artists. All art will be for sale, and proceeds will go to the NCSPCA’s Capital Campaign to build a new shelter for the needy dogs and cats of Essex County. An opening reception will be held on Friday, June 1, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts. (17 Algonquin Drive, Lake Placid. 518-523-2512). Everyone is welcome; the exhibit will be suitable for children. Unfortunately, spring brings more than sunny days, gardens in bloom, and warmer weather. This year, it is also bringing a lot of ticks! Both our furry friends and our family members are at risk of being feasted on by these tiny critters and many local sources have stated that, due to the mild winter and early warm spells, this year ticks are expected to be more prevalent than usual. Please be sure to treat both your pets and yourself as a precaution before you go outside. Although ticks are generally thought of as being more prevalent in wooded areas, my daughter recently discovered a tick

on her scalp after playing in the backyard. Frontline and Advantage pet treatments help prevent ticks as well as other parasite attacks on your pet; a good quality insect repellant spray such as Off or Cutter will provide protection for you. Even with protection, it's advisable to check over your family members and pets after spending time outdoors. Our featured pet this week is Petunia, a vivicious and lively young domestic shorthair-mix who has terrific personality and cat-itude! Petunia loves to play and never seems to run out of energy. She has a rumbling purr and a happy-go-lucky outlook on life that makes it impossible not to smile around her. She has a patchwork quilt of blackand-white markings and intelligent golden eyes that are full of mischief. Petunia would be a wonderful addition to any household, especially a family who has the time to give her plenty of attention and opportunities for playtime! Why not stop by the NCSPCA and meet her today?

Bird program slated in Crown Point May 20 event CROWN POINT — “Thirty-seven years of Bird Banding during May at Crown Point State Historic Site” will be Gary Lee’s topic when the retired forest ranger, naturalist, columnist and author makes a PowerPoint-illustrated presentation inside the site’s museum at 6:30 p.m. Sunday, May 20. For more than three dozen years the all-volunteer Crown Point Bird Banding Association has gathered and recorded ornithological data during spring migration on the Crown Point peninsula. Lee’s educational indoor presentation is scheduled to take place at the finish of the 16-day bird banding work at Crown Point this year and at the conclusion of the Lake Champlain Bridge grand celebration weekend event. No admission will be charged to attend this bird banding presentation. Seating is limited to 77 people and will be on a first-come basis; the doors open at 6:15 p.m. Parking will not be available near the museum due to fireworks preparations and the need for safety measures. Guests will need to walk along Grandview Drive between parking south of the pavilion and the bird lecture in the museum. Two years ago, the bird banders captured and released the 100th species of bird to have been documented at Crown Point State Historic Site, an American Kestral (a small Falcon). The bird banding station was established in 1976 by J.M.C. “Mike” Peterson. The banding is led this year by licensed master bander Gordon E. Howard, a professor in the department of parks, recreation and tourism management at Clemson University, in Clemson, S.C.
